There was never a kinder man than my Uncle Phil. He had a warm heart, a cheery yoicc and a full purse; and he was very generous in exerting their good influences. But there was a melancholy air about the good old man, and n sad smile tAat he wore, which gaye one who was as frequently with him as I an im? pression that had received at one time or another, rather rough treatment at the hands of the world. So, one winter evening, as we all sat around a roaring fire, in the best spirits, exchanging jest* and making miserable puns. I said to him : 'Uncle Phil, tell us a story.( ?What about, my boy?' 'I wish that you would relate sotH' incident of your own life. Did you eve have a love affair !' lustantly I regretted asking the ques tion. The kind impressiou on his fact changed. He was not angry; he neve was. Put a look of pain crossed hi: features and his melancholy mood whicl he had for a moment dispelled, returned 'I am sorry, Uucle Phil,' said I, 'i I have called up painful memories.' 'You didn't mean to, my boy.' sait he; it was a natural question,and I won. der now that you ucvtr put it to me be. fore. Odd as it may seem, it is true that your crusty old bachelor uucle ha* had a love alluir, and a serious one, too.' Re paused *nd we all kept silent. Af? ter a moment he proceeded : 'My dear, I lave never told the sto? ry to man nor woman, and never thought to. Put as you are just startin- out in life, and as Henry tlicrc(pointing to nie] seems much interested in the the 'vis? ion in white' whom he saw at church ou Sunday, I will relate you a portion of my hist ry, ??rliich is sadder and darker than that ol any other man I knowjand how? ever Strangely any sentiment I may ut? ter may iall upou your ears as coming from a man ncrly sixty.I know that you will not treat it lightly, for I will apeak from my heart. Perhapsjthe story may have a moral ?Inch you may apply to your own conditions as you think lit. 'It was about tive-and-thirly years ago.' said Uncle Phil, 'liiat I first met Helen Toll. She was a beautiful girl, with a soul as pure as her bright blue eyes, and Irom the first inoimnt of ou'" acquaintance 1 lelt that 1 loved her with an ever-increasing affection. She was i only twenty and I was three years her senior. There was a sympathy between ; us arising from a mutual love of the ; beautiful in nature, and alikin^lor the same author, so that after six months I ? ventured to tell her I^loved her, and j you will guess her answer when I say ? that I was the happiest man in the j world when I retired to bed that night. 'After a most blissful courtship of three months Mr. Toll, Helen's father, : proposed lo take his family to Europe, ' and when I, with the presumption of an accepted lover, offered to accompany the party, Helen joyfully acquiesced, and her parent! civilly approved. We arrived safely in Liverpool and went from there to Loudon. Oh, what a dclighful time it was for us two travel? ing through the great city and hunting j out the plaits of historical interest with : which our reading had made us familiar. ?? During the first two weeks ol our stay w? were perfectly happy, sight-seeing i and love-making. Then we began to 1 gel acquainted with some of the great i people of London, and were rather an noytd than oilier? isc at the batch of in? viUtions to dinners and ball which we received. JHit we entered into society of the metropolis with an casernesa which was somewhat whetted by curios? ity. Tbe friendship of the American Minister opened all doors to our en? trance, and Helen at once became a fa? vorite with both ladies and gentlemen, and I had a reason to complain a", my own reception.' Uncle Phil leanetl his head upon bis liuiti] as If be were collecting bis thoughts He heated a sigh andpn tendel to blow his nose,but 1 plainly saw that bis hand? kerchief came in contact with his eyes. 'Well children, at a grand ball gi>en by a nobleman, whose name escape? me, Helen met a young scion of agrat fami? ly-the Hon. Charles Leigh?who paid her much atteulion. She seemed pleased to receive his addres? ses, but relaxed not a jot in her kind Ht M lo me. He took her to the opera, to fie parks, and the 'Zoo' and danced often with her at the entertainments to which I generally escorted her. Py some means unknown to nie?pethap?, my suspicion had a colloring of jealousy but a coolness bad sprung up between him and me, who had formerly been good friends, as 1 was the lover, and had the hotter temper, I could not reply to some sarcastic his he would give me,en cept in a way that displayed my ange and which was. therefore,devoid of wi On one or two occasions I must ha\ made a great tool of myself, and l?ele was troubled that I should show ? muchly feeling over what she declared I be a harmless matter. But I told h< harsh that 1 was ill-pleased with th existing state of affairs,and that 1 wish cd her to tell Mr.tLcigh that his atten ?ions were offensive. No girl of spiri would quietly permit such languagi even from a lover, and wo then an there had our first quarrel, daring ?rhic Mr. Leigh was announced. He enter cd the parlor, and was received by Ilel en with more warmth than usnal,and b mywith a coolness which I meant lo b crashing, but which I have net a doub pleased him greatly.' ?He asked her to go to the Drury-Lan Theatre with him that eyening, and sh gracefully declined on the plea of an er gagement there with me. But I told he in an undertone, while he was lookin at her album, that I absolved from thn engagement; and added, half afraid t speak the cruel words, 'from any othe engagement which is disagreeable t you.' 'The words had not left my moot before I could have torn my tongue 01 for having given them utterance.' 'Very well, sir,' said she in a voie trembling with grief and anger; 'all en gagemenls between us are disagreeabl to me. They arc now cancelled. Mi Leigh,' she said, turning to him, 'Ihav reconsidered your invitation and kccep it.' 'Oh, thank you.' said he, taking ? seatather side. "Why, Mr. Eltonhcad. he asked rallier exultantly as I arose 'not going, I hope!' But I made no re? ply, and slammed the door like a sel o il boy wauting whipping. T went to?Drurv-Lanc that evening and never removed my eyes from Held from the lime the curtain rose until i fell. Mr. Leign was more assiduoui than ever in his attentions to her; bu I ceuld easily see that her thoughts wert neither with him nor with the play. Tpuu arriving at our hotel I wrote her a uote. I was still angry, thougli more at myself than at her. I though i if I had acted indifferently toward hei the would n-k a reconciliation, so I told her in my letter that I was resolved to return to America at once; that ] had been shabbily treated, that as the had probably purchased rank at the ex? pense of an honest beat, I hoped that she would live long to enjoy it. I then started for Liverpool and embarked for New York. Just before sailing a leitet w;is handed to me. I opened it and found that Helen bad returned my cruel note with these werds written in pencil: "Mr. Leigh this morning proposed for my hand. I accepted him. II. T.' ' Uncle Phil again maJe use of hi? handkerchief. So did we ours. ?My dears. I wai detiumined not to make the first advances. 1 came to 1 N\-w York, and three days afterwards I received a letter from Helen. I have il Ht. He took a package wmcn was car fully tied with a faded ribbon from h Luge (im kit-look.

Al h eyes recognized the lo\';n_' hand tl dear old man burst into such an agon of tears as I have never seen cquallei His frame shook, and be groaned i bitterness of soul as if bis In-art Wl breaking. It seemed a long time befo; he mastered bis emotion. Then li read the letter with a trembling an broken voice : London. E. C, October IS. 18? Dear Phil: I will forgive you your crue treatment if you wiil return and be good boy. Your own, IIi;i.kn. 'I was sliil wicked, and I wrote fermai letter ill reply, stating tba business prevented another trip jus now. I signed the letter with a col 'Yours respectfully, Ph. Kltonhead.

From that day to this I hau but the grave of my wretched hopes Hut away down in the deep chaos of mj soul is enshrined the image of her hcari I broke. For she died m one year fron: the date ot marriage, and the last Worth of my angel were of forgiveness for tin misery I had wrought. 'And now, my darling*,' -aid Uncle I'hil as he wiped his ejes, 'you have my secret, beware ofjeajottsy, tor that ':? its lesson. And Henry,' he said to me. ?if the 'vision in white' encourages your suit, ascertain whether her hcari is right or not. If it is, d> not seek to control her actions, but leave her to the guardianship of her own conscience.

Mrs. Harbins asked as bet h?band was attemplng to write an important letter. 'Do you love me still?' "Yes I do.' said Ilar kins, and it was the emphasis that broke her heart.
