White lay the snow over roof, over wold White hung the moon in the frosty sky; And haddled sheep, that crouched in the fold. Wore the white raiment dropped from on high. But a little window rustic and old. Gleamed cheerily red on the wanderer nigh. A painter passed on his way, that night; "What a scene for a study." the painter said; 'Fairly gleams that ruby light. Icicle fringe It from overhead; "Ob, moon, thoa art ghostly! Ob, world, thou art white! I ll look In the window all warm and red." So lie looked but whatever his eye might se His pencil told not, his lips wen dnmb. I might guesi, but who would listen to me! And the day! of the painter have told their sum. Would you know, yon n-.nst wait till yonr s.ul I free, And you two meet In the world to come. j Here is the study the painter wrought; A little way off that window glows, And the print of children"s feet are brought Up to the doorway, athwart the snows, And the moonbeams fell like an afterthought, Aud silver their pathway w ho now repose. Cold shows the world and the sky round about. And warm breaks that ruddy light between; Or the painter" thought I need not doubt. For long like his study his life has been; Ah, long time his lot was to walk without. From the one light apart In a wintry scene. Hut I hope, where the white flake freer no moro, I hope, where winter ijovt r and gone. For the cold of the.nlght that went before He almost forgets how he made his mean; And almost forgets how they closed the door, Anil doomed him to work in tha worldalone uoJiAMi; or a uriLi nt; match. The hour fcirthc dailr Jit-inissal of Hih School had arrived, and dow n the steps of their separate en trances poured the streams of girls and biys, first these of the lower classes, and after aa interval, the younjr ladies and gentlemen of the graduating class, a dozen perhaps of each sex. A3 the two groups came round the corner of the building, in view of each other, one of the young men, the acknowledged favorite of ihc class, stepped quickly across the intervening grass plat to intercept the gi.ls. "Curly Crcightou's oa forbidden territory, I mean to report him," ang out Belle Dargoyne, a sparkling little brunette, also a privileged char acter, dividingthe honors with Creigh to:i. "What, Belle! After IVe wasted in V" substance ia confectionery for ycu? Ob, the sting of ingratitude!'' and he laid bis hand over his heart, in mock pain; then, hastily dolling his cap and tossing back his curls, which had gained for him his sobri quet, he said, with a weeping bow, "Ladies, I am appointed a commit tee of one to request yon to step back into the domicile you have just quii ieJ and meet my colleagues and my wlf in 'So. 2,' tbere to confer upon a matter involving issues of vital im portance not only to ourselves but to ihc 'coraing race.' Here he changed his mock heroic manner and urged in his own euial tone, ' ! come, girls, every one of vou. e havo I rofessor J.'s per iiiis;-isn to use the room for half an hour. Com on," and taking Belle's arm, 'Til cbap-her-on all of you," be cried, as he led the way. But two of the oldt r girls were proof against Lis persuasions and walked off, while! the remaining nine follow ed Telle and Curley into the room where tho young men were already assetnt le'd. "Here they ore," cried Curley;'' I captured them by a most successful coup-J'-ilat, iecoed to the one only ib the annals of history." "Oh, no Curly! It was your irre sistiuie eloquence mat excitcu our curiosity, otherwise we should never have been enticed into these walls so soon after escaping them," said Dean Dupreese, as she sank languid lv down upon the nearest bench. "What's it for?" "What does it mean?" "Ob! I'm so hungry. Do hurrv up and explain." "I'm con sumed with curiositv." "Curly re lieve our suspense," came from all sides as the girls disposed themselves about the room. "I move that Creigh- ton takes the chair," called out Ben. Uuggles. "I second it," was heard from several voices, and Curley step ped upon the platform. "Lonians, countrymen, (a bow to the gentle,) and lovers," (to the la dies, which was resented by sundry shrugs, up-lifted noses, and grimaces at the speaker.) "I come to serve you, not to praise myself, so 1 will omit my inaugural address and pro ceed at once to state the business of the meeting. Our learned colleague and friend, Mr. llolcombe, who hails, as you know.from the suburban vil lage of Waverly, is the bearer of an invitation to the class to repair thith er on rriiiav nie-bt ana meet the flower of Warerly in ft contest or thographical. In other words, it is challenge to us to spell Against them, and for the glory of our future 1 move that we go en masse, aa one man, conquer them on their own ground and condemn then to igno miny, or oblivion. This tidal wave, if taken at its flood, leads on to fame. Yho"il join me in a glorious ca reer?" The girls were laughing, the buys cheering the orator as he wiped his glowing face. "I subside in favor of llolcombe, who will now take the tump," hcadded, vacating his posi tion, and crossing over to where Luih Deneaa stood tapping her mu sic roll impatiently, llolcombe a line head now rose above tho others as he made hit way to the front "I fear," he said, "that Creigbton has set ft bad example to our future voter's, indicating the ladies, by his unparliamentary proceeding. How ever, we'll dispense with form, to diy, and I'll just supplement what he has said, by extending to you an invitation from my uncle and aunt to spend an hour or two at their house, after the match is through. There will then be ample time for you to return to the city during orthodox boors. I trust you will all come. Uow many are we, all told?" . "Sua Rensdale and Carrie Reade won't go. . They wouldn't even come in to hear what it was," said Belle Burgoyne, "and, of course, Kent Thayoe cart go if Carrie doesn't, she added in a lower voice. Bat Thayoe had heard her.

"What a miserable subterfuge, said Belle, blushing brightly. "He was glad of ft pretext, and I'll tell him so." "That leaves us," said llolcombe, "ten ladies and" counting rapijly "eleven of the sterner sex." "I'll be Xo. 21, the superfluous man," called Crdghton, from Miss Denean's side. I'll attend to the conveyance and assigning partners, &c, and make myself as useful as my beauty will permit " ""But I don't think I will go," said Ruth in lofty tones; "Oh, Ruthic, you must. Why, you've alwayB been eur very best speller," cried Katbie Brandon. "We shouldn't stand a ghost of a chance cf beating, if you are not with us, Rutbie, put in little Down ing. "Better go, Miss Ruth, and look to your laurels," Baid Creighion, sotto voce. 'HoIcombeV got a flame out there that be says they'll put against a whole city-full, and Webster's Un abridged tbrown in." Miss Denean flashed uneasily. Up t that moment she bad never, in her thoughts, associated any person but herself with Kex llolcombe. True, he never attended any of their j gatherings, but hia home being out of the city, accounted for that, an-1 the possibility of his spending bin evening wjth any other companions had never occurred to her. He was approaching her atlhat moment. "I say, llolcombe, was that your divin ity who is to vanquish us all to-morrow night, that I saw you helping off the train this morning? I almost felt icady to acknowledge myself con quered in advance. . Such eyes, and lips, and hair!" 1 And Crcighton struck an attitude indicating com plete helplessness at the mere recol lection. llolcombe looked annoyed as be answered: "Have done with your nonsense, Creigbton. Reserve Iboae attitudes until we see whether tbey do not be come real. Miss Delean, I hope to have the pleasure of introducing to you, to-morrow nigut, a friend of mine, the lady in question, and also to tho other members of the class," he added hastily. "Oh, that's understood," said Belle Burgoyne. "Ruth Crst the rest of us fullowicg in her train. I intend to stand next to her when she gets the medal, commencement day re flect honors, you know." Ruth was indeed looked upon by all the class as the "medal girl," while Holcombe's prowess was not disputed as first among the other sex. "I'll bet on Ruth Denean," was beard from among ft group of boys, iu Jones Taliaferro') shrill tones. So will I," mi iTirwut ecvcrul eager voices. "You sec, Miss Ruth, the polls are open and betting's lively. You'll nave to go," saiel iluggles woo was standing near. "Why, you have not thought of refusing, Miss Denean?" interrogated llolcombe. I cannot decide yet. I will let you know in the morning. Now I must go to my music lesson, llerr Goetz is painfully punctual," and sho moved off, while, as Belle had said, tho rest followed in her train. When morning came the had made her decision. Xes, she would go. She wanted to fee this "rustic beau ty" cf llolcombe 'd she said, with a fierce pain at her heart; he had call ed her his friend; no doubt it meant more than friend; but Ruth Denean drew her Gnc figure up to its full height, as she thought how she could, if so minded, eclipse this rustic beau- tv by her accomplishments; for Luth was an only child, upon whom ad vantages had been showered, but who, from choice, was pursuing the curriculum of the public High School, confessedly the first in whatever she attempted. When, next morning, she passed llolcombe in the ball, and met his questioning look, she nodded, bright ly, an aflirmative, and passed into her class room. It was arranged that llolcombe should go out on the usual train and put all things in readiness for their reception. Ruth had searcely given a tnougnt as to tbeir manner of reaching there, and it was therefore will no surprise that she found waiting for her in the parlor. "My number is changed," said be as be rose to meet her. "I'm either two or twentv. accordinz to whether you're first or nineteen. Congratulate me upon being no su perfluity. "You see, be went on ex planatory, "Holcombe's going in ad vance left us an even number. lie said he thought it better for him to go on, to perfect arrangements, bat I shrewdlr suspected that ft certain little lady who goes out on the train was partly responsible for bis zeal. I often see them together. She comes in twice a week to the Art School. J Hope you're in good trim for 6peliing to-night, Ruth," he went on. "We mast beat them. But here's the bus. I hear Belle's voice. She's got Tal iaferro in tow." And Rath followed him out to the conveyance, which j proved to be the long-drawn-out ve hicle of i Institute, procured through the untiring efforts of Curly A chorus of voices greeted their appearance. "Are all here?" asked Ruth as Curly assisted her up tbe steps. "Yes, you're tbe last on the list," said one ef the younger boys near tbe door. "Best wins, you know, Miss Rutb." "Oh Rutbie, we're so glad you de cided to come. We know you'll get the prize," cried Katie Brandon. "You know its ft Webster." "My father said he'd sit op to help me tn with it," said Belle Burgoyne, "but I told him I wouldn't put him to that trouble." "Here, Creigbton, you can sand wich Miss Ruth in bet-ween me and Ruggles, and you can stand and im prove the opportunity to grow a lit tle," called out Jones Taliaferro in his piping voice. "Tolivar, my boy," said Curley, lifting him . lightly out of his seat, and dexterously slipping into his place between Belle and Both. "My fiv feet ten are the height of my ambition. I'll tarn my chance over to yop " "Bell, does your gallantry allow you to sit tamely by and, cee me thus "j ruthlessly torn from yonr side? 'Oh, JoDesv, if you can stand it, I will try and sit still," laughed Belle, as she nestled down rather content edly at Curley's elbow. "Did you know, Ruth, Ruggles has brought his violin along, at Hol combe's request, and we've to try the terpsicborean after we've sent those bummers to their last orthog raphical account," said Creighton. "Tread the mazy on the light fan tastic," interpolated Taliaferro. "That's charming. Mr. Ruggles," said Rutb, whereat Ben blushed vio lently. "And Katie's brought the music of those divine waltzes. We're to have both piano and violin," and Bel'c hummed a bar from a favorite. Meanwhile they were rapidly leav ing the city behind them. 1'resently tbey reached the avenue where were a few miles f splendid drive. The horses' hoofs rang right merrily, and jests and laughter, and snatches of song floated out on the still air in pleasant harmony. Lt-avingthe av enue they entered up n a road less level. 'Once more unto tlia breach," screamed Taliaferro, as a sudden lurch precipitated him between Belle and Curly. "Tolivcr, bo calm: inaintaiu yonr equilibrium," suggested the latter. "I see the lights of the village," said Jones a3 he regained his foot ing. "Gleaming through the mist of your imagination, I fancy," said Belle testily. "I believe if we were to op set, Jor.es Tolivcr wouldn't forget to qaote." "He saw stars I've no doubt when he fell," said Creighton, "and thought tbey were the lights of Waverly." Before Jones could quote a fitting reply tho others announced that he wa3 right, and soon they were enter ing the main street of a straggling village. They drew up before a plain white edifice which proved to be a church for Sunday's uses, but which was made available for all festal gath erings of the villago folk. "There's the elite of Waverly, drawn up in rank and file to meet us, with llolcombe at their head," said Curley to Ilatb, as they prepared to alight. She felt her heart beat an comfortly as she saw Holcombe's tall furm in the broad stream of light which issued from the door. But her hand was firm as she laid it in his extended palm and spraog lightly to the ground. "In good time," be said heartily, "we had not yet begun to be impa tient." Rutb felt a little jealous pang, as she thought he was too well cnter taiced, perhaps, to note the time. Sho. wnileroU . which of tbe face clustered about tho door wa3 that of the "rural champion," as she cow disdainfully styled her. There was a good deal of rustling and shaking of drapery, as the city girls prepared to follow llolcombe into the church. Ruth designedly held back until they bad all passed in. Then she took Creighton's arm and with ber utmost cxprra.iment swept in. llolcooibes quick eye noted her manner, but ig noring it be stepped forward, saying cordially, "Mies Ratb, one of our referees has not yet arrived, we are improving tbe time by becoming ac quainted," and he introduced several of the joiiog people standing near. Rutb threw a searching glance over tbe room and saw Curly in tbo act of making bis best bow to a slight girl whose face was from her. Immedi ately she turned, Ruth's heart sank. She had time to see a sweet spiritual face lit up by liquid eyes and framed in by fruffy masses of hair, the whole surmounting a small dark robbed figure with a certain nameless in contour and motion. Iney were comintr her way and Holcombe's voice was heard to say: "Ah, here Miss Ruth, permit me, My friend, Miss Dinsmore, Mis De neane, Racbie." "Your name is not unfamiliar to me, Miss Dcncane," said Rachael Dinsmore, iu her sweet flexible tone? "I trust you ladies will become friends before you become rivals in the coming contest," said llolcombe. "I must leave vou now. I sec our referee has come," and he hurried away. Creighton remained and Rath no ticed a curious consciousness about him that she could not recall in all her previous acquaintance with bim. He was not bis own sunny self, and as for herself, Ruth found it impossi ble to unbend before this frail girl who chatted with unaffected ease for their entertainment. Sho was soon relieved by tbe meeting being called to order. A referee was chosen from the ranks cf tbe city class it was Ruirzles. and Rutb saw to her sur prise that as tbe contestants ranged tbcmselves on tneir respective siaes of the long rsoni, with the visitors occupying the seats between, that llolcombe was to pronounce lor them. In a few words he explained that tbe difficulty of his position wa3 apparent. He could not ligit against bis present class being one oi tnem, while od tl e other hand, he could not array bimselr against the school mates of his earlier days. "They havo settled the matter for mo by putting me here under protest How ever, I shall try to meet out justice and bard words to all, although 1 make no choice of the words myself, bat simply pronounce the list B3 se lected." A moment of expectant sucnce, and the contest began. After a half hours' spirited work, ihe ranks were reduced to one-third cf their first di mensions. Ruth saw Deaa Dupress siuk down with ber usual noncha lance, after missio? tho word "Be- leaguerer." "Too energetic for b.r," whispered Janes to Belle. "Immolated" biought down Creigh ton, to the surprise of all, himself in cluded. A victim upon the alter of or thography," he said as be took bis seat by tbe side of the Dean. "Deciduous" and "hypocracy" had their victims on the other side; and as Ruth spelled tbe latter she saw to her dismay that there remained on her side only Belle Jones and Katbie lira ad oo, while Miss Dinsmore was supported by two bright eyed girls, a small boy and three sturdy rustics, seemed to have swallowed and diges II A u r j 1 ATP Hi 1 c ted Webster and Worcester, with Ilenkle and Henderson thrown'in for sauce.

"Satel lite" vanquished poor Jones, who groaned into Belle's ear that she had extinguished him. The small boy oa tne opposite siue was slain by "Tragedienne," and "Micaceou toot off knottier of tbe rustic trinity who bad been raised among tbe rocks.

Tbe con test grew lively, but, alas! for Belle, In an evil hour she made a respon sive grimace to Curly at the same moment that it came her turn to spell "ticdouloureux." She Fpelled nastily to cover her embarrassment. The o"s and the u's were too many for her; sho got them inextricably confused, and sat down burning at her discomfiture. One cf the girl's on Mis Dins more side fell stricken by the same attack, and poor Katbie Brandon succumcd without aa effori at resist ance. Miss Dinsmorc's remaining ally got through with it, but on the next round "Obeisance" compelled her to make her bow, and Ruth De nean and Rachael Dinsmore confron ted each other on the floor, unsup ported. Rachie's slight figure sway ed with excitement, while Ruth's fine physique had never shown to such an advantage, aa she stood im movable betraying no sign of the perturbation raging ia her breast. There was a strained stillness in the room. Curley wa3 watching Rach ael, with his soul ia his eyes. ' Hoi combo resolutely kept his eyes on the list before him, his voice rininsr out with startling distinctness on each word. The girls spelled delib erately, each, as if holding her pow ers in reserve. At length it was suggested that foreign words be tried, and a list with the meanings affixed was handed to llolcombe. He glanc ed at Rachael who nodded affirma tively, then at Ruth, who made an imperative gesture with her hand, and began. Was there a fatality in the words? He began to think so as be gave them out. "Affiance," to Rachael; "Bel!es!ettre3," to Rutb; "Surveillance," "Canailie," "Trous seau," "Bellesprit," "Potpourri," "Beconnoissance," followed each oth er ia slow succession. "Bonhomie" he put to Rachael, who spelled it with a smile. "Coup-de-rgace" to Both "a stroke of mercy a finish ing stroke. tlia Toice Tang out s ne gave tbe explanation. There was aa instant of intense silence then, without a quiver of the lips, B3 she opened her glowing eyes to their lullest extent, to the surprise of her friends, who knew bow ac complished she was in French, she said, in a distinct voice. "I do not kuow how to spell it," and walked proudly to a seat. "Died game!" T'lucky, by jove!" "Good grii!" and sundry expressions of tbe like, were heard from different quarters of the room. Tho Webster wa3 awarded to Rachael, amid ringing cheers in which the vanquished joined lustily, and Curly sprang over the top3 of the benches to hold it for her, quite forgetful cf Ruth, who sat pale and apathetic. The meeting broke up in enthusiasm. aVs Ruth was adjusting her wrappings, llolcombe approach ed her. "Shall I have the p'easure of. escorting you to my uncles? Creigbton seems oblivious to every thing but tho present owner ot the dictionary." He drew out his watch. e ve two fail bours before time for your return, Curley," a3 be and his companion neared them. "Are you equal to transporting iiiss Dinsmore and .Noab Webster to our house.

A short walk, with only time, for the inter change cf a few common places, brought them to the hospitable man sion cf Mr. Tronstine. wbicb had for years been the home of Rex Hoi combe. Here they found a tew in timate friends of his waiting their ar rival. Ruth felt greatful to llol combe that he refrained from men tioning what had passed, and deter mined to reward his kindness by en- joying tne evening. nn sucn spirit3 as Belle and Curly to set tne ball rolling, mirth was soon estab lished. Rachael was the heroine of the hour, and Ruth, with inimitable tact and grace, added her congratulations to tho rest. "But Ruth," said Belle, "Didn't you know how to spell it?" "I dida t at that moment, .belle." "And had the courage to say so," patia Taliaferro, w ho kept close in Belle s wake. A stir ia another part of tbe room attracted their attention; a dance was proposed and sets were forming far a quadrille. Curly had secured Miss rJensmore's band in advance and they took their places, while Rath smiled at his oblivion to ber. llolcombe stopped at her side. "The sets are full Miss Denean, but will you dance the next with me?" She assented and ho left ber to look after his other guests. A new sensation had come tv her. True, she bad been defeated by the pale little thing over there dancing with Curly, but no sign of disap pointment in her had been manifested in Holcombe's demeanor, and the chagrin she had felt was fast giving place to a pleasurable feeling that ahe accepted without attempting to analyze it. When be came for her a fuller life seemed pulsing in ber veins, ber distant manner was gone, and Rex llolombe felt that for some reason unknown to himself, be was seeing her in a new and different phase. There was little opportunity for conversation, but in thinking of it afterwards llolcombe could not re member a pleasanter sensation than that he experienced while moving throneK the measore br tbe side cf this stately girl. He led ber to seat flashed and happy, but they were not to be left to the tete both longed for. : Curly made his way towards them, "Ruth!" he cried in his old impet uous way "Katbie and Eugutes ore going to play our old varto- tVU2 y IL.

JusttLi3 once, Ruth, for auld lang syne," and she was born off. A few other couples set out with them, but soon they were left alone the cynosure of a"ll eves. Curly's dancing was undeniable a pleasant thing to contemplate, while Ruth's admirers enthusiastically declared her's to be the "poetry of motion " "If I could dance lik that. Ilex,'' said Racbie in an undcrbreath. llolcombe did not reply, he seem ed afraid of losing one movement of the form before him. An! Ruth, this is worth the defaat of aa hour ago. "A waltz, Katbie," whispered Cur ly, as they passed her at the piano. The raeasuio changed. Ruggle's violin thrilled through the room in one of the never to be forgottoa mel odies of Strauss. Katliie played a threbbing undertone of accompani ment. Ruth's lips par ed s!ightly;i her lids fell over eves w:ioso intense j glow seemed but half concealed by tho drooping lasbes. Her color came and went. A l.ingurous passion seemed to inform her every motion. How long they revolved to those matchless strains she never knew, but sweeping past Ilolcodibo she saw bis shinmz eves fixed unoa her with a strange, new glance. It tangled through her veins like wine, and sho awoke to a realization of time and place. "Xo more to-night Curly. Not another round," ebe said decisively.
