WE LOVES HER THE BEST. In all her gracious loveliness She stooped and gave a fond cares* Unto the lad with curls of gold. Who had been gently kissed and told This lady was to be a mother To him and his wee baby brother. That night, unmindful of the bride, Be stole unto his father's side; Upon hU knee he climbed and said, With tearful eyes and low bent head: "Our new mamma is sweet and kind And good; but, if you wouldn't mind, "Dear papa, roe and little brother Would rather have our other mother, The one who went away one day; Kurse says 'twas Just a year last May (A sigh escaped the tiny breast), ?Cos, papa, we loves her the best." ?Pearson's Weekly. | II CilOMURIW. j ? HOW A GIRL DROVE AWAY A j Z, WORTHY LOVER AND Z WAS SORRY. "It I go. Uosalle," Harry Reynolds Bald, "remember that I aUall not re turn." lie made a step toward lier and continued, "Have you not a word for me, Rosalie?" "I do not think of anything further that I wish to say," she responded coldly. Harry gazed at her a moment and then rushed from the room. "Cold hearted, seltish girl!" he ex claimed. For a few seconds after his departure Rosalie retained her Indifferent posi tion, but all her senses were alive to catch his lightest movement. Of course he would return, and when he behaved properly and asked her pardon and submissively he should have it, but to be lectured and scolded in thnt man ner was more than she would bear. In valu did she listen. An hour, then two, then three hours passed by, and sick at heart Uosalle went up to her room and cried herself to sleep. Rosalie was warm hearted and quick tempered, but was easily appeased. She was also passionately fond of ad miration and quite as much beijt on having her own way as* was good for her. These faults, however, did not pre'vent the village beaus from being at her disposal, and hitherto she bad heeu nearly impartial in her treatment of them, having no mind to give up the general homage l>y fixing upon one. But lately there had been a differ ence In her feelings. She had ac knowledged there was a charm In Har ry Reynolds' attentions such as she had never found In any other. A thrill new and ^delicious went through her when their eyes met. and she read the admiration which he vainly tried to repress. Harry had a high Ideal of womanly excellence which Rosalie by no means came up to, but In spite of her frivolities and his own misgiv ings they were frequently together and fast verging toward an explanation when that destiny which appears to delight In the auuoyance of lovers in troduced an element of discord Into their happiness. Mr. Clarence Dalton catne up from the city on a visit to Ills uncle. He was handsome, agreeable, wealthy and noted for the careful elegance of his attire. The girls were enchanted with him, and Rosalie aloue regarded him with seeming Indifference. She said to herself with virtuous resolution, she must be careful now. Harry might be wounded if she received attentions from such a lion. Happy for her had this prudent dis position lasted. But the old spirit came up after awhile. She was entire ly accustomed to queening It In her little world, and lier vanity was piqued that Mr. Dalton did uot at all seem struck by her charms. It was quite a Christian duty to Rive Mr. Dalton a lesson In good taste. So by n few little feminine lures, such as a pretty girl well knows how to practice, he was attracted to her side, and once there he seemed exceedingly well pleased to stay. Harry could endure it no longer and in the Interview whose close we have portrayed detci iiiined to "put his for tune to the touch to win or lose It all." Conscious of her power. Indignant, with some Justice, that he should as sume to dictate her conduct when he had never openly declared his love. Ito I salle had responded by a series of flip pant. exasperating little speeches which drove Harry almost to despair. She Intended to relent In time, but pride, vanity and a certain triumph In knowing that his whole manly heart was hers to play with at will wrought sad mischief. Rosalie had no doubt that Harry would come the next evening as usual and all could easily be made right again. But the evening came and went and no Harry. What could It mean? Surely he loved her, and If so he could not stay away. She would wait pa tiently since it was all that she could do. The next evening Mr. Dalton called, but Rosalie sent down word that she was III and asked to be excused. Yet as night after night went by and Har ry did not return her submissive mood changed. She would show Mr. Harry Reynolds that she was not suffering from the withdrawal of his presence. There were other people quite delight ed to be In her company. The next time Mr., Dalton came she did not decline to see him. bat came down and was as friendly and pleasant as could be desired. The young man noticed a more womanly thoughtful ness In her manner than he bad blth .erto observed and wondered what might be the cause. Poor Harry's state meanwhile was far from enviable. For the first 24 hours he maintained a fierce resent ment. But as the days came and went he softened little by little until every harsh sentiment bad vanished and a determination seized him to soot Ro salie aud try to efface the memory of bis previous sternness. Toward evening he wended his way to her home with the sweetest anticipa tions of reconciliation and affection. With every step she seemed to grow lovelier and dearer than before. But as he neared the gate a sight met his eyes which speedily cooled down the fervid tones of his fancy painting. It was Mr. Dalton assisting Itosalie to dismount from her liorse. The exercise bad brought a bright flush to her cheek, and she wns fairly dazzling. She per ceived Harry In time to l>estow ou him n very distant bow aud then turned, with added em pressmen t, to her com panion. Hair}' changed Ills Intentions at once, walked by the house in the most leisurely and indifferent manner and proceeded to call upon that obnox ious Nellie Kcllis. whom Rosalie re garded so superciliously. Mr. Dalton meanwhile found his af fairs in a somewhat perplexing state. Flirtation lmd been since his eleventh year the element In which lie delight ed to exist. Matrimony with its cares and responsibilities was to him the most distant of prospects and must of fer extra Inducements to make him for sake his freedom. Now, however, lie began to feel himself very seriously in terested In a person who had not oue claim to fashion, family or fortune?a little village girl who wore dresses of her own fitting and made all the pies and cakes that appeared ou her tabic. Whether she really cared for him or re garded him as a friend or simply as an admirer was Impossible to say. Other people were not Slow in draw ing their conclusions, anil before three weeks were over tlie village authori ties In such cases declared it would be a match. Ilarry could not In his heart deny the reasonableness of their predictions. He had the grief of believing that his wishes, hopes and nffcetlons were noth ing to Rosalie. Yet had he anything but his own harshness to blame fur the change? He was miserable, but his own act had caused the misery. Mr. Dalton had a mother living, n stately lady of some forty odil years, well preserved and a leader of society. Clarence was her only boy .and the object of a great many ambitious dreams. The marriage which looked to her so misty and far away was to her a very near reality. She had se lected a girl of his rank for a wife, when, lo, there came a rumor that 'struck her to the heart. Could it be that Clarence was about to make a fool of himself? She wrote n letter to her son iu which she expressed per fect confidence in his discretion and her assurance that he would do noth ing foolish or Imprudent. Mr. Clarence's brow as lie rend the maternal effusion was clouded with thought. Where, lir the name of com mon sense. could there be any dnngcr lu a marriage with such a charming girl as Itosalie Ames? As for the dan ger of her lu-art, he Wished he were a little surer of it. lie felt at that moment that Ills own was in a much more perilous position than hers. As Harry walked that afternoon along the broad road leading from his house lie was attracted by almost In articulate groans, and looking a few yards Into the distance lie saw a sense less form lying in his path, while a mad horse ? dashed furiously down the road. As he drew nearer he recognized the dark, tasteful riding suit which he hud seen I >:i I ton wear ho often before. And passing from the clothing his eyes rested upon the face, pale as death, of the unconscious man. Good and bad angels tugged at Har ry's soul for one moment In a mortal conflict. What call had he to Interfere In Ills behalf? The sneering fop who bad blighted all his hopes! Let lilm stay there and die. But in the next moment, forgetting ail but the welfare of his fellow being, he snatched off his overcoat and raised Dalton's head and rested it upon It. Then, with frantic haste, ho Butnmoncd aid. and all that skill and care could do was employed for the sufferer's restoration. Harry hung over him. pale and agonized, the accusing voice ever ringing lu Ills ears "God forgive me!" he cried. "That wicked delay."
