heart which scorns me, a heart fi.'ed by
another image. Ilusbund, father of my
child, Count do Ve^ac, come back to the
home that at least deserves your respect.
Your wife,
Aline de Verac."
A» Madame de Verne folded this letter,
and had the pen in her hand to direct it,
the door of her boudoir was pushed open
pent'y, an t a gent'em:'» tn < r'ng walked
stea.uiily up ti the table and stood be ore

"Henri, my cousin !"
"Al ne,, my dear It (le Aline—but T for

your husband will be jektous, as he was
once before, long years ago, when you were
a bride."
"N i foa®Bf that now, my dear cousin,
but fell mo of yourself. How long have
you been in 1'aris 1 since when have you

' Hut a few hours have 1 been in Paris,

I should l.a e been here sooner; but where
is de Verac r"
-Viie tu rued her hoad away, her fin
gers playing norvously with the letter
she i ad taken up, hut she did not reply.
" Ken I left you six years ago, Aliue,
yoif were so happy; your husband so pass

ot the cousin who could also console him

Henri de S mianc took bis cousin's
hand in his and gazed up into her face
Earnestly.
j "Aline," said he, "it should h ive been

have lost,"
w "At any rate," exclaimed Aline, "I can
never be so unhappy as A havo been, for
1 have now a niend." .
Miailmie Monsieur de Verac received
Ws Wife's letter. He was not a one, though
be was in his private apartment, which by
a strange coincidence was situuled just
uiiderneath*Lh..t of Madame 1 auline llu
l>u ; ami th* lady taking advantage of a
sniall private staircase recently construct

letter towar-s her as soon as he had fiu
ished readii g it,
"Well, M ,uM»ur f'e Vera-,'»-said she,
"I adfie you to Innen to this eloquent

"Laul ne, what do you mean—you do

s hc ieli, uf.cr ^,vuin s.ra^glo to support
herself, into the arms of ihe Count.
I "famine," hu .exclaimed, as he pluceiT
her gently on a sofa. "I will never leuve
J' ou i nrver will I re uru to the woman
who has made you weep."
"Oh ! Jtduuar sighed Pauline; "I
love you for yourseAi «loue ; 1 never speak

''i® 8 ihat preas on uiy eouscieuee ; hut lor
k-oir sake A can siidure even reiuor.e."
't was^bout three mouths utter thisin
terview that Mme. -l aal.uo Hul.n a >-!iiu
^ reclined in * u urn, ehair, her cheek "wet
remain
with tears, her eyes cast, down,'whilst at
her feet was a lover pressing her hands to
Ins lips;~but it was not tue Count de
Vente, but his cousin, the Count Henri
de Siuiiane.
"Yes," murmured ITenri between his
ardent kisses ; "yes, my i.euutiiul Pauline,
1 feel, 1 appreciate all the sacrifices you
have rnauc lor me. 1 know how pure uud
immaculate was your life till I knew you.
I know how you must loved me to forget
the stern priuciples that frivc hitherto
ruled your life."
"Henri," said Pauline, blushing or
seeming to do so by means of the pink
curtains that shaded her, "sometimes 1
start in my sleep sad wonder whether all
can be true ; but I love you ; I gave my
self to you that you might not uouiit me."
* At this momeut a footstep was heard
approaching, Mme. liuliii started up, and
pushed Henri away ; but lie elapsed her
closely to him, and at the same momeut
the door opened, and the Count de Verac
stood before them.
Mme. Huhn screamed and hid her face
in her hands, but Henri did not relinquish
his hold ; on thu contrary he ciaspeo her
Closer.
Monsieur do Verac rushed furiously up
to them, hut Henri, theu, placing her be
hind him kept the Count back.
"Monsieur de' Verac !" he exclaimed,
"what do you want here ?"
"What right have you with your arm
round that lady ?"
"What right have you to ask ? you took
uwiiy from me the woman who was to have
been my wile, snrelfbt is but fair retalia
tion that I should taxe your mistress."
" W hat do you mean t ' ' exclaimed Pau
line, indignantly.
"1 mean that i have known all the time
that you were the mistress of M. de
Verac."
"How dare you say this."
"Simply because 1 am the cousin of a
woman wnose name should not be mu. -
tioued hers j but as her husband is here
to defend it, I do net rn.ud saying that
the Countess do Verac, my cvusiu, told
me the great sorrow of her life."
"lou shall atone for this !" exclaimed
de Verac.
"Any way you like, dear cousin, only I
will not give up my clamnug Pauline ;
we are going to Italy together,
not ?"
"Pauliue, is this man speaking
truth ?"
"Mousieurde Verac," said Mme. Hulin,
seeing that she must love one or thu ether
now turned boldly to Verac, "seme time
ago you showed me a letter lrom your
wile ; that letter made a deep impressieu,
it made me reflect on the guilt ot our af
fection ; new Monsieur Henri is not mar
ried."

"Not in the least I" exclaimed Henri,
"Monsieur Henri is rich, inuepenueut,
generous, it is better to chug to him, my
beautiful Pauline."
Here de Verac came up to Henri, and
lay»npr his hand on his shoulder, looked at
h.ui with flashing eye*.
"Luough, enougu !" said he, "but M.
de Simiano, I suppose you understand that
tu. s cannot end JMfco."
'■v-e.t^nly not, and I am prepared for
any ei» ng mat j6u may euiiuescond to
propose.'
The Cqjrnt turned with a glance of con
tempt at A util.ue, and strode from tho
. Henri could not getawaysoeas : ly
ly for bo had to encouuter a series of hys
teroi, reproaches, und protestations, ana
to uo a great deal of comforting before he
could get away.
"Alii.e,"said Henri tliatevcning, wh oh,
1 ko every other evening tor the last three
months he hud spout with her, "if A should
die before 1 see you again ?"
"Henri, what do you mean ?"
"No, I w.U uot put it so. Suppose I
WSre on my deathbed, would you torg'.vo
a contessiqu 1 wou.tl uot dare make if I
th.ught.A Were goiug to live?"
"A eonfessiou."
"Yes. tüÿ 1 love you—not as a sister,
but i » the wi mm to whom A was once be
trothed—love you, worship you, adore
you, as my first lovo, the love of my youJt. '
"Henri, do you wish never to see me
again, that you speak thu»?"
"I pray iJud v monaiii, that I may see you
qgaiu, uud that when we meet you may
orn-e again be happy, aye, though it thou d
t ma uiy life, i wumd see you happy.'
So Hchri departed. 'Ihe uext mom ng
he received the Count's fire, but did uot
return it, though he rnjght h.iv* done to,
for the Count's ball penetrated his right
side, but left his right
bqx Henri fired iu the air.
The duel made a great sensation iu
Par.8, though Henri, as soon as he wus
able, left it.
As loa M. de Verac within a few hours
of the duel he was ou ins rotSl to tho lr.
tier, by a ru.lroad which, in a few hours,
couveyed him to Brussels.
It was lrom this city of exiles and refit

"Àlinfe. 6 ome months since you bid mo

A Rich Story.—D o any of you know old
Bill L -wry ? He moved from Springfield to
some point in Minuçrota. Bill is tough,
smart as a whip, keen as a brier, hut then,
like all of us leller.-v Bill lovtH to sco tho bot
tom of the turn biers at all times. Well, once
there was a Methodist revival in town. Bill
was thero, aud a little too full of hia kind of
spirit to hold much of the other kind. But
he sat still. At last the sermon wus ended,
and utter the minister came down from his
proclamation staud and said :
" Now l want all who lovo the Lord to come
forward and be prayed for/' No one moved.
In a minute ho repeated: "Biethren and
siuners, I waut all who love tho Lord, or
who wish to love lnui, to come forward on
tne bencii." No one moved.
