The Lady of Linden-wold. A STORY IN FOUR PARTS. BY MRS. R. B. EDSOX. CHAPTER VI. HERE was not in all New Eng land a prettier or more charm ing town than Springport. It had the broadest and straightest roads, the finest shade trees, and the fairest and loveliest girls. Which latter attraction owing to the law of gravita tion, or some other science 1 don know what. I onlv know that thev nsu ally do gravitate in such directions had drawn an. unusual number 'of young men to Springport. Xow, like all other Yankee towns, Springport had a very decided weakness for picnics, and the amount of good things annually concoc ted by the fair maidens of Springport or their mammas Drobablv the latter would only aggravate yon if I were to c numerate them. 1 ney liaa one oi ta most delightful of groves, great spread ing oaks which clasped hands above the smoothest and cleanest of walks, and the cosiest of nooks, which Xature, with commendable consideration, had ar ranged with express reference to flirta tious and kindred amusements. There were, 09 I said, a great 'number of prert.y girls in Springport, but; per haps, for sweetness of manner, graceful news as well as loveliness of person, Or iha Ashley was the most attractive. She was a perfect blonde, with wild-rose cheeks, and bronze-brown hair, that clustered in all manner of little wilful curls and rings round a low, broad brow. Of course she had scores of lovers or could have if she liked and of course she had sometimes indulged in little harmless flirtations; for Orpha was not one of those dreadfully high-toned voting ladies, who think it a mortal sin U take a young man's arm, or accept the simplest civility from him unless he is prepared to marry "on demand." But among her many admirers was one who apparently stood higher in her favor than the rest. It was strange, too. For Mark Allen was not a general favorite among the young people of Springport. He had sprung from rather a low race, but Mark was proud and ambitious. He Had energy and confidence, and was reckoned, among those who look only, to material success, a lisi u sr vounsr man. But that he was unscrupulous and mi- prmcipieu, shamming virtue wherever it would futher his schemes, and mock- iug it as readily if occasion gave oppor tunity, was the general opinion of all who knew him iutimatelv. But he was possessed of a powerful will, that had a strange power to bend aud control weaker ones. There was a strong mag netic force in the man, that had been probably, the great element or Ins suc cess, lie had conceived a violent pas sion for Orpha Ashley, and, though she did not love him, she felt attracted to- wa -ds him. She could turn off other ad- mlrars with saucy words or careless in duference, but Hark Allen would eub she would fascinate and distract the rural swains, and evtrv ymith. who had left off round jacket ana learned to smoke rattan and grape vines, had his "girl" duly engaged. Orpha Ashley went with Hark Allen, of course; for latterly he had appropria ted her to himself quite despotically. The morning dawned with the prover bial fairness of that favored day. The tables looked splendid as ' for that matter everything does in these days of adjectives, the dancing-boards, swings, etc., were in usual picnic spirit. Pres ently there was quite) a little flutter among the group of girls who had gath ered in the "arbor,'' as a pretty rural summer-house, made of grape vines, in their native haunts, was called. "Who is he?" whispered one, shyly. 1 "Good looking, isn't he?" said an other. "Hope Hark Allen will have grace enough to introduce ns." "Well, he won't," said another," he'll be afraid of losing bis sweetheart." Urpnn Diusnea crimson, ior sue Knew that the stranger could not fail to have heard the last two speakers. Mark had turned away to attend to something, and aud probably did not hear, for which she felt intensely thankful. He wat handsome, she saw that through her half-raised lashes, as she encountered the dark, eloquent eyes of the young man bent directly upon her. "This way, St. Orme," said Fred Ma sen, drawing St. Orrue's arm through his OwiiSY!'f'"wri f introdnee you to ine gwis, ami "Ui uegni wiui uiy sister Susie." . V. Aud so eae after another of the group was introduced to Charley St. Orme, a young man who had been in Springport a whole week, and the girls had not found it out! This very unusual and astonishing circumstance can only be ac counted for by their entire pre-occupa-tion and absorption In the picnic ques tion. ..... When Mark Allen returned, he found Orpha swinging very composedly with the handsome stranger. He bit his lip savagely, and sat down to await their alighting. Then he walked up to Orpha, and drawing her from her escort, started apidiy awav, urpha's Drignt eyes flashed. I did uot wish to leave my party, Mark," she said. "Nor young at. Orme." ne sneered. "If vou choose to have it so." "It's no use for you and I to quarrel, Orpha. I shall never give you up to that stripling, if he has got a pretty face; wnicn is an a trirr tilings or." I did not know that I belonged to you to dispose' of to any one," she said. witn more spirit tnnn ne naa ever seen her show. Rut I hope you will,-darling," he said, Changing his manner. "I am i nasty leilow, anu pernaps a little aroi trary, sometimes. And you know how I love vou Urnha. By neaveus : it looses a thousand devils in me to see you smiling on some otber fellow." "Mark! stop, I don't want to to hear you talk so, aud if you persist in it I will return, x never tola you tnas x cared for you in-that way. I like you pretty well, Mark ouly when you are in one of your savage moods; and somehow you poeess a sort ot influence over me, Due i do not feel bound to you in any way, and you must not take it so, it 1 do go with you sometimes." "You don't know your own mind Orpha. You've flirted so much that you don t know wlion' you are in love." "1 never was in love in my lite, Mark Allen.". Until 'to-day;" 'with' a meaning glance backward. remaps." "I don't think it will be best." "I dare sav not-i-that is for vou." "Or for you-i-or that beardless boy either !" he said, .savagely. Only once or twice afterward, during the plcuic did Orpha find opportunity to speak to St. Orme, so closely did Mark watch her. But it only deepened the interest with which be regarded her for the mere difficult a thing is to ob tain, the more eager is perverse human nature to obtain it. She had accepted Mark's escort for the day, 'and so she submitted ; but afterward" ! "There are more days than one," she said. And they came, too ! Long, golden summer days, in which love grew to sudden ma turity, and her whole life blossomed all over with a marvellous and unutterable beauty. Mark Allen fought desperately against tue tates tnat piucketi nis love out ot nts hand, tut his old power- was broken. A mightier spell held her now the all powerful, invincible spell of love. Mark grew sullen and moody, neglec ted ms business, and finally disappeared trom bpringport the spring betore Or pna was to De married. A leeungot in finite relief came to her when she knew he had gone. It made her nervous, the way in wnicn ne watched her, out ot those great deep-set, gray eyes. She grew light-hearted again at once, and absorbed In preparations for her wed ding. A few evenings before it was to take place, she ran down to Susie Ma son's after some mysterious pattern that Susie had received trom New York, and which was pronounced "perfectly lovely." She took her little sister Nellie, some fourteen years old, with her for com pany, as there was a-slight strip of woods about three rods wide be tweet, their house and the Masons. The pattern was secured, and Susie accompanied them as far as her side of the wood, and then turned back. Orpha and Nellie had gone but a few steps when a man sprang suddenly from the sine oi tne road. The atinghted gins started into a swift run, the man closely pursuing. They could hear his quick breathing. and tear actually put wings to their feet They gained the yard just as their pur suer readied . out his hand to grasp them : thev reached the door, snranir in side anu supped the bolt as he came to the gate; which was not more than six feet from the step. Mr. aud Mrs. Ash ley had retired, and so the eirls crent noiselessly to their room, which was at the end of the house ; and not daring to light a lamp, sat uown panting and breathless, on the bed. All was silent as the graye; no step or sound broke the stillness, and Orpha climbed noiselessly in a chair to recon noitre. There was no moon, but a clear, starlight night. She did not dare lit the curtains, but peeped cautiously over the short, white curtains, then so much in vogue. The instant her head rose above the curtains there was a flash andittie quick report of a pistol, shatter ing the glass into fragments, and outting tne nair irom her lelt temple. She lell back senseless, but not before she had seen, by the pistol' flash, the fierce de moniac face of Mark Alleu glaring up at her. There was great excitement in Spring- port over the aflfair, and heavy rewards were offered, and every effort made to find some trace of Allen. But the search proved fruitless; and at length thean'alr ras comparatively forgotten, urptta and St. Orme were married, and for eight sweet, swift years, life seemed one long, happy dream. And in all these Orpha had never seen Mark Allen's face but once since the attempted assassination. She was sitting in the short summer evening, listening to a strange tale which her husoaud was telliU''. The windows were open, but a graeeful cle matis trailed its leafy screeu sicross them, securing tbem from observation. The child had 1 alien asleep on the car pet, and the parents were too much ab sorbed to mind or heed it. 'I had thought never to tell you this, darling," he said, "but latterly, as the conviction has deepened in my mind that I should very soon leave" you, I have revoked my "rash vow, in hopes that when I am gone, the knowledge Tuuy help and benefit you. We have oeeu very happy these vears, dear; and if I had not felt this sure, fatal grasp of the destroyer slowly tightening upon my vitals. 1 do not tiniiK i should have dis turbed the sweet content. You would not have been happier, dear, if you had known?" "Oh my darling, my darling!" she sobbed, convulsively, "it is only that life has been too sweet, and happiness too perfect, which makes the tuture look so terrible, and hopeless, and utterly desolate. Oh Charles! I cannot give you up. God will nt obe so cruel to me ?" "il usl), love, : hesaid, laving his thin hand on her bowed head. "He doeth all things well. I have learned to rest con tent with his ordainings. It is a hard lesson, little one it will be hard for you, I know but there is rest and strength in it ay, and triumph too!" be added, exultingly. "I have made everything straight and plain in these papers, so that you will have no uimcuity in tne matter, i timiK it will be better for our child, or I would not urge you to leave our native town for a home among strangers. But they will love you lor my sake, for tcey have not forgotten the wanderer, or ceased to care for him. You will take this letter too, and give it to them with the papers, in whieh I have written ev erything which is necessary to establish your claim. Put them in the lower, right hand corner of the desk, and lock it securely." She crossed the room, and did as lie requested, taking out the key and going toward a little nook ry the window where she kept it. Half way across the room, she uttered a wild shriek, and fell in. a swoon of terror at her husband's feet; for there, at that window, peering n between the pale clusters ot clematis, was the wild, haggard face of Mark Al len. Orpha St. Orme never saw him again, but when a tew weeks later, C harles St Orme died, and while the house was left alone during the funeral services at the church, a sullen, dark-browed man, with deep-set grey eyes, crept stealthily into the little sitting-room, and fitting the key to the lock of the lower right hand druwer, drew thcretrom a soiled, un sealed letter.and a little packet of papers, A fierce smile ot exultation crossed his face, as he put them carefully in his pocket, rclocked the desk, placed the key u its place, and stole out as stealthily as he came. CHAPTER VII. Annie Wallace had been all day at- Lindenwold. Miss Livingston had been unusually gracious, taking her into the suoerl) conservatory, where the rarest plants blossomed in marble urns, and silvery fountains sent up their clouds of mimic mist, Out in the gardens the leaves were rapidly falling, and only here and there a late aster, or chrvsau themum remained, as momento of all the summer's glory. Annie had keen als- thetic tastes, and her soul revelled in all the beautiful sights aud soft perfumes that wrapped her senses in their en chanting spell. By-and-bv she said sottlv, and halt unconsciously: "1 wish I were rich it is so pleasant to nave beautiful things." Miss Livingston smiled in a satisned manner. The spell was working. But she said with charming earnestness: My dear child: what can be more pleasant aud delightful than living in your Simple cottage, with your papa and mamma, and your " she paused till a switt color flushed to Annie's temples, and then added "your brother." Something in her tone or manner an noyed the sensitive spirit of the girl, aud she answered quicKiy : "One is sensible of other wants some times, Hisa Livingston." "Of a husband, or lover, perhaps?" she laughed. "I am not conscious of any such want, Mtss Livingston," she replied, flushing again. "Ah M might nave Known, we are not general ly conscious of a want when it is already supplied.". 'I do not know what yor mean." . "Indeed ! I thought your mother had got that all arranged, I understood her that she had," veiling the sarcasm with a light laugh. Now if there was one thing more than another that- Annie was particularly sensitive about, it was this. She hud a morbid fear that Arthur would feel that it was his duty to marry her. That it was expected of him, iu return for the lore, and toil, and self-denial that had educated him far above the sphere in which they lived, and which had done all this joyfully in his behalf, that by it he might be fitted for a higher position thru they held. Did Miss Livingston think her mother was forcing Arthur into an unwilling engagement with her"r" she queried, mentally, the proud blood surging hotly in her veins, aud her sensitive spirit stung to the quick by the subtle insinu-tion. I prefer to make arrangements of that nature myself," she said, haughtily, but with a quivering lip. Of course you do; you dear little thing ! Did you think I meant anything by my loolish badinage, silly cmiu t lor you are but a child yet, and it will be time enough to trouble your head about such matters two or three years hence," replied Miss Livingston, coming up to the beautiful marble Flora against which Annie was leauing.and passing her jew elled hngers carressingly over the heavy waves ot sott brown hair, which was one ol the girl s greatest charms. A child! a mere simnle child ! Two or three years hence," she said over to hersell. "And be said that perhaps next spring if he succeeded well, we might might pshaw! I won't think of it. Silly child, indeed!" she said, angry at herself, for, she hardly knew what. There was something strange about it. but there was something in the presence of Miss Livingston that always made her dissatisfied with herself. She was continually contrasting her own child ishness and simplicity with the ease, and polish, and quiet diguity which charac terized everything that Miss Livingston said or did. She grew to think her fair hair and blue eyes terribly tame and In sipid beside the magnificent braids of purple-black hair, and the dark, brilliant eyes, ot that lady. he wondered it Ar thur never compared them as she did, and if he did, if she looked as poor, anil plain, and insignificant to him as she did to herself. She stood toying with a' splendid vine that trailed over i higher bit of wicker work, hCr miud busy with these morbid fancies. She did not guess how beauti ful, and innocent, and fresh she looked in her fair, young beauty. Bilt Olive Livingston saw, and her slender fingers clenched themselves together till they grew purple under the nails. I There was a light rap outside and a voice said : j "Are the gates of paradise closed to' common mortals, Miss Livingston?" "Indeed, no. Our paradise is not so exclusive as you think. Pray come in, Mr. St. Orme," she said, as she drew back the light bolt, and stood before him with glowing cheeks and luminous eyes. He bowed gallantly, and uttered some graceful compliment, but she saw his eyes involuntarily wander to Annie, and light ud with sudden tenderness. The rich color in her cheek wavered and went out in sudden pallor; buthe did not see, as he turned and beckoned her to follow. "Miss Livingston," he called, "I fully appreciate the honor of the invitation, but shall have to decline tbe pleasure to-day. hVt some other time, perhaps." Whefever you please, 3Ir. St. Orme," she replied, facing round. The color had come back to cheek and lips, and tuere was a dangerous, bewildering gleam in the magniticant eyes that were turned toward him. His eyes rested on her a moment in unconscious admira tion. She saw and knew that it was ad miration nothing more. But if the were only out of the way ! 1 have taken the liberty of bringing you a ealler, Miss Livingston," said St. Orme suddenly remembering himself, and blushing at his own rudeness. Ah! And whom am I to have the honor of entertaining?" one whom l think you will meet one whom it is an honor to know," he replied warmly. "Jo not tantalize me, Mr. St. Orme; be merciful, anu end my suspense at once, by telling me who this very supe rior person is." "Your pastor, Mr. Kussel, the rector of St. James." Her cheek flushed with genuine pleas ure. She had felt strongly attached to Mr. Russel, from the first, and, since the event of the fire, had been more than ever desirous of making the acquainance of so brave and chivalrous a gentleman ; i chivalry rarely witnessed.sbe thought.. among the clergy. Her idea of minis ters geuerallv, was, that they were a class of superior beings, very learned aod very pious, whose express business it was to save souls, leaving the task of saving or caring for their bodies to the common people the publicans and sin ners who were uot worthy ot any higher work. But Mr. Russet's brave act had revealed a new possibility in ministerial character, and she had often wished that ho would come to Lindenwold. Or, if she had only known ! I thank you, Mr. St. Orme," she said, with pleased cordiality. "Where have you left our guest?" In the long drawing-room. 1 left him absorbed iu the family portraits." Annie, naturally timid, shrank back and would havo declined going in, but Miss Livingston insisted, and even drew her arm through hers with gracelul cou- descesision. But Russel stood still before the por traits when they entered ; and so com pletely was he engrossed, that St. Orme twice pronounced his name before he heeded their presence. The dreamy, far away look was still on his face when he turned it toward them. Mrs. Vanstone s words, "he has the Livingston look," flashed across Arthur's mind. There was the same wonderful depth and bril liancy in the dark eyes, the same pecu liar thade to the luxuriant hair, and the same haughty movement of the head that was peculiar to the Livingstons. He could not help comparing them as they stood side by side. He thought them the handsomest couple he had ever seen ; so noble, and brilliant, and grand-looking; he the more intellectual and spiritual, she the more brilliant, passionate aud iinpuisive. Thev were so different from himself, with his dark, thin face, clear gray eyes, and close-curling, bronze- nrown hair pushed carelessly away irom a broacl, thoughttnl brow. "Nobody could ever accuse him of having the Liv ingston look," he thought, as he glanced at the stiff portraits on the wall, and then at the breathiug, glowing face of the last ol that proud house. Miss Livingston was evidently pleased to welcome the reetor, and he seemed equally pleased with the welcome, and with the fair lady who tendered it. ahe inquired very particularly for the Misses Clair but hail the delicacy not to launch out into fulsome praises of his bravery in saving them; yet she managed to in fuse a subtle sense of her appreciation of the act, in a manner much more pleasing and flattering to a high-toned, sensitive nature. When informed that the Clairs were fellow-passengers from England, she at once claimed the right of friendship, aud begged that Mr. Rus sel would introduce her to his proteges at an early day. He was pleased at her interest, and readily promised, and an early day was fixed for the visit. In deed, he would have promised anything, with those tender, passionate eyes look ing into his soul, and ltie odorous bream fanning his cheek, as she took his hand, iu parting, after a long and very pleas ant visit call. As a general thing, Paul Kussel was not loud ot pastoral calls They were one of his crosses, which he bore conscientiously, out not loyluily But this was so different transfiguring the duty and the day, and descending like an aureole and resting upon it. While the adieux were being made, and while her haud still rested confid ingly in her young pastor's, there came a little rap on the door, which was opened simultaneously with the rap, and the good-natured lace ot Asa Lowe ap peared. A little abashed at the sight of I lit rectur, lie p.iu.ieu uii iumuiiii,, ms mirc viemg with his hair in intensity ot col oring . "Asa!" said his mistress, in a tone of haughty reproof. "Beg vour parding, mum,and same to Aou, sir," bobbing his head in the most ludicrous manner, and pulling at his hat-band. "But there's a man in the dining-room who wants to see the mis tress." "You can tell him I am engaged, Asa." "I did tell him so, though I didn't know as anybody but Miss Annie was here." "And he still persisted in seeing me? Impertinent!" "ne said he had very important busi ness at least to Aim." "Who is he ?" "Dunno; didn't think to ask him. Here's a slip of paper which he said he 'guessed would bring you.' " "Insolent!" she said, biting her white teeth into her lips, and crimsoning with anger and mortification, as she carelessly unlolded the scran of naner. - It bore but one word; but it had the power to drive every vestige of color from her face, and to bring a look of bitterness and terror to her eyes. "We have tarried unpardoiiably al reaflv, Miss Livingston; but if our pres ence would be anyjhelp or protection to you" "Thank you, Mr. Russel," she said. rolling the paper lightly round her fin ger, "hut. I do not think 1 am in any im mediate danger; especially with so chiv alric a defender as Asa," she added, nriuging back the suulu to her lips, though it was not mirrored in tier eyes. "It is a mere matter of business, and though tho person is not particularly pleasing to tne, I dare suv I shall be able to survive the ordeal," she said, laugh ing lightly.

It seems only yesterday that I rode with him to Philadelphia, the time passing swiftly under the influence ot his pa thos and humor. 1 can recall no char acter that filled a larger space with brighter gifts. He was in every re spect an original man, a combination and a form indeed ot most diversified qualities. For many years identified w ith the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, ind lately recalled to an important po sition in its management, he was as ac curate in his business aptitudes as he was genial in social and literary ci rcles Successful alike in his dealings with the stern-chiefs of great enterprises, he was beloved by all his associates and subor dinates, and when he turned from work to rest from his official duties, to books and the fine am, he was a companion for scholars and statesmen. Nature had en dowed him with a rarely handsome form and features. His manners were unus ually fascinating; his tastes were 1 culti vated and refined ; his memory cute and tenacious; his knowledge of men most thorough. Modest and retiring, lie bore himself like a prince in every presence, His ambition seemed to be to make oth ers happy. In society always a univer sal favorite, and invited everywhere, his wit shone and sparkled but never 6tung. lie had no enmities and Tew enemies. never mixed in politics, and concilated the affection and confidence of most an tagonistic elements. His genius was as marked in the hard attritions of railroad competition as in the skill with which he invented the means of intellectual enjoyment. To soften asperities, to smooth the pathway of life, to befriend the distressed, and to help forward poor young men, these were his chosen am bitions. His mind was instinctively el evated, and when he threw off his daily :ares it was surprising to note the vari ety and the purity of -his comic talent Who that ever witnessed his imitations and his burlesques can- recall one that approached vulgarity? lean remember our voyage across the Atlantic, our ram bles through tngiand, and our experi ences through Franee ; how ' fresh and ever-renewing his fun: how vivid his perceptions,how full and ripe his knowl edge as he revived It In the famous his topical places ; and how, when he longed for home, he would brighten the gloom with some fitting story or mimic one of I just beautiful to see him peel and go in. and he looked after her and took care her all the time, and when she was down with the small pox, he set up nights and nussed her himself. 1 think that you're' winte. x think you re a square man, pard; Hike you, and I'll .1.

There was a great time oyer Buck Fan shaw when he died. He was a represen tative citizen. He had "killed his man." not in his own quarrel, but in defence of a strauger beset bv numbers. He had kept a sumptuous saloon, lie had been the proprietor of a dashing helpmeet, whom he could have discarded without the formality of a divorce. He had held a high position in the fire department. and beeu a very Warwick in politics. When he died there was a great lamen tation throughout the town, but especi ally in the vast bottom stratum of soci ety. On the inquest it was shown that Buck Fanshaw, iu tho delirum of wasting typhoid fever, had taken arsenic, shot himselr through the body, cut his throat, and jumped out of a four-story window and broken hisicok: and, alter due de liberation, the jury, sad and tearful, but with intelligence unbliiided by its sor row, brought iu a verdict of death "by the visitation of God." What could the world do without juries? Prodigious preparations were made for the funeral. All the vehicles in the town were hired, all the saloons were put in mourning, all the municipal and lire company flags were hung at half- mast, and all t he firemen ordered to mus ter in uniform, and bring their machines duly draped in black. Regretful resolutions were passed, and various committees appointed; among others, a committee of one was appointed to call on a minister a fragile, gentlo, spiritual new fledging from an Eastern theological seminary, aud as yet unac quainted with the wavs of the mines.
