1 had been a long time loved by one good
uud nobh?, and more than worthy. He
wiw like .some poet arti-.t'a conception of
morning with liix calm high bruw, ins clear
blue eyes, and golden tr:60s. There was
an expression of bold and fearless truth
in his handsome features, and a look of
loving fjudemes.s about hi pleasant mouth,
lie was all sunshine, and he shone his
way i.ito my heart. 1 loved trim, though
1 hardlv acknowledged it to myself, lie
and I I had but' my proud old name,
and the ruined old mauion and the wasted
patrimony of th ) proud race of Stuarts.
Another lover came, and this one was
rich, The gold lay deep in hi iroji cof
fers, and the' broad" lands that called him
master, all we-io green tmd lair. If Mor
gan Phillips was radiant with the beauty
of morning, tho other one, Hunt llene.s
loy, was the personification of u stormy
night, nut wet wiUi the rain of tears; but
black, darkened and terrible ith heavy
tempest clouds, with now and then, a
.star .sparkling through them, like the
gleam of a giant's burnished armor. 1
hned Morgan Phillips, but Hunt Ilenes
ley'fi wilder nature possed a strong
charm for my adventurous imagination.

With Morgan Phillips what should 1

the low' voice in my heart, and 1 saw a
vision of a peaceful home, wbcre my pres
ence would make sunshine. I twined the
roses owr the cottage walls, and rocked
the Lluoeyed children, bright with the
golden hair of my husband; but the cozy
table-, with its visions of washing dishes
aiuUcouring knives; the blue-eyed little
ones; of my rocking, however fast the
cradle jogged, would' cry, and arrant fan
cy turned with a sigh of relief to the
other picture the lullaby of the peacclul
Mediterranean, the summer islo upou her
breast. Unconsciously I said aloud :
"I shall be Hunt IIcnesley," and
then my mother called mc to her side.
I thought, ar. I tat down at her fret,
how beautiful she had been in years past,
how beautiful she still was, with her great
sorrowful black eyes. She looked at me
steadfastly for a moment, and then she
said, half sorrowfully :
".My child, you have promised to be
Morgan Phillips's wife!"
"Nc, mamma, I am voting yet."
4 Ves, very young; but if you have not
promised, you have let him know for
t!.(s.; many months that you loved him
that his presence at your side was wel
come. Now, Hanna, if you did not mean
to wed him, was this right V
1 blushed, and was silent, and she con
tinned :
"I know Hunt Ilenosley loves you
also, and 1 will not ccuncl you. Yw
own Ik art will be your safest guide, if you
will only follow it." Only, Ilauna Stuart,
my child, do not let ambition, power, lux
ury, or anything tempt you to marry
without love. The retribution will be
terrible," and my mother drew her shawl
about her and shuddered, albeit the room
was warm. Her voiej was low and husky
as she went on :
" 4 I will tell you, my poor girl, a story
of my own youth. You need the lesson
and you shall have it."
" 1 was motionless. I. have the picture
of the beautiful being who died that I
might live, but she passed from earth ere
she had clasped mo to her breast. I was
mv father's idol, but at fifteen he died
and left me poor. He had b-e-i wealthy,
but after my mother's death lu had trust
cd his fortune to a faithless steward, and
T was scarcely above want.
. I was beautiful, the world said, and I
knew it well. The face that met my ga.o
laslsto.nl lr fore the morror, was bright
(and bowilderingly lovely. I had been

A
read it in every act; iu the uppcalling
tenderness with which his blue eyes rested
ou my face; in the care with which he
anticipated my wishes, and in every iuto
nation of his voice as ho addressed mc.
"Rut another suitor came. Allen
Greame had never asked my love, and 1
never promised in so many words to be
his bride, but for many months ho had
believed mo all his own, and when your
father visited the cottage, his eyes sought
niy face with a kind of questioning sad
ness. Time pnssed on, and seven weeks
beheld me Percy Stuart's betrothed. Look
ing back, I cannot see by what circum
stance this change was brought about. I
worshipped Allen (jreame as madly as
ever. His smile was the sunshine of my
existence. Yur father loved me, or at
least he idolized my beauty, and he was a
noble, generous man. Still his presence
had no power to awaken a single heart
thrill. But he was vieh and noble born.
I coveted tho proud rank of his wealth
the stately mansion and the old name. It
was a long'struggle between love and am
bition, but at last I laid my hand in his.
Scorn mc, llauna, hat3 me, 1 do erve it.
I sinned wilfully, I knew 1 did net love
him the heart and soul were long yield
ed up in adoration to another -aud yet I
became his bride.
" Allen never reproached mc, but tho
stony hopeless sorrow in his blue eyes was
more bitter than the most terrible words.
His mother was kind as ever, but I could
see the hot tears fall upon the bridal gar-
I mcnts she was making. Aim l un,
Hanna, I shudder, looking back through
all these years, at the bare thought of my
silent agony. I believe that I was more
beautiful than ever. My eyes were wildly
bright, and my checks Hushed like wine
an hundred years old mantling over a sil
ver goblet. My bridegroom liked the im
pressive eoluness ot my manners. 1 lo
not think that he ever dreamed that I did
not love him, and my stateliness accorded
well with the lofty pride of himself and
all his haughty family.
"I married him. The ceremony was
over and he turned to kiss his wife for the
first time, when a shrhk ran through the
church- a piercing, terrible shriek.
Then there was a heavy full. Allen was
borne senseless. My husband might have
jiusye cd when ho miw my anguish, that
he was more than a brother I called
him, but he said nothing. He even acce
ded to my wild prayer that our bridal
journey might be postponed until he was
better, and permitted mo to be a constant
watcher at his bedside. My beloved had
broken a blood vessel in his fall, and the
fourth day he died. I held his hand as
he laded gently.
" Katrine," he said, looking mournfully
into my eyes, " Katrine, it is very sweet
to die thus with you beside me. I am
dying of your love. I shall be happy,
dearest, for an angel whispers you will bo
mine in Heaven. You have never said
you loved mc, but I know it. I know
that my dying love is more to you than
all this bright living world, and I am
where no shadows fall. Kiss mc, Katriue
and then sing me that dear old song."
" 1 had kissed him many times before
as a sister might the free innocent kisses
of childhood
but then drawing his head
to my bosom, I sang. It was a ballad we
had sung many times together, when the
stars were climbing up into the quiet
sky. And I sang it now to the soul
which was soon to climb above the stars,
above the sky, evcu to the foot of the
great, whito throne. He looked at me
with Hoods of light swelling into his large
blue eyes. l'vey moment he grew more
beautiful, till 1 was frightened with his
unutterable glory. I ceased, and his low
voice whispered " Katrine Heaven."
The lids closed over those earnest eyes,
peaceful as a child lays down to dream,
and the golden head grew cold upon my
bosom. 1 was alone with my dead!'
" My mother paused and clasp me to
her heart, thcu releasing mc she continu
ed :
" Ilauna, I knew in these early days
your father loved lac as he could love
not with the worship of the dead, but he
vvas proud of mc and tried to make mc
happy. He suffered much. Tho wife
who "rested on his boom, slept in her
dreams upon another's heart mixed with
grave mould. When he clasped his arms
around me, ever between their folds and
my slender waist, where those cold arms
of the dead. I pitied him, but my very
soul was sick unto death, I could not
feign the love which my heart could never
feel.
" It was two years, Hanna before you
was born. He lad learned of late to seek
happiness otherwise I did not trouble
my.clf to inquirj after the natuic of his
pursuits; 1 was grateful to be left alone.
When you was put into my arms, I rained
tears of blessings over you, thanking (lod
that my heart could love. As I lay there
in silence, with my fys shut, lidding you
v.i my heart, 1 heard my husband say :
Perhaps this child will win her love
for me. God grant it j wo may bo hap-
1 " u was a vain hope, Hanna; I was
eoi i':nu nmmian ever. v e totn iovca vou.

i wui- noiu you. i wouiu uoia you in
uiy arm hour after hour, raving over the

V
WHOLE NO. 165.
One night as 1 held you thus, my husband
entered.
" Katrine," said he, I shall die
to-night die by my own hand. I have
lost my all at the gaming table, whither
your coldness has driven me. 1 am sorry
lbr your sake, and for the sake of our in
nocent child ; but you deserve little else
Who could sell yourself for station, when
your being was another's
" I know his reproaches were just, and
1 sat still in defiant silence, holding you
to my heart. For live minutes he stood
silently looking on us. Then he spoke
again with a softened tone :
Katrine, forgive me. Perhaps you did
not know your heart till it was to late.
Let not our parting be in anger; I have
done you many wrongs, but 1 have suffer
ed tcmbly-Uod will judge me, and he is
merciful. Katrine, kiss me once before I
die. Once let me hold you to my heart.
You are my wile. Your hatred cannot
be so deep that you will refuse me this, my
last request."
"Ilauna, 1 know not what demon ruled
me, but I sprang up from my seat and
held you aloft in my arms and cried :
" Go ! do not touch me ! 1 loathe you !
I hate you ! JJut for you my darling would
not have died. Before your comming I
was happy. CSoJ You cannot suffer as
I have suffered, ever since your hateful
lips called me wife !"
"Then holding you still, I sank down
upon the floor weak and helpless. I can
remember nothing distinctly, but I have
a faint, indistinct memory of a kiss of
fire upon my forehead of seeing your
baby face covered with caresses and of
being aroused from tli3 darknes of my
long fainting by the report of a pistol.
Your father was dead.
" llanna, do not quite hate me. 1 have
loved yru, suffered for you, lived in your
life. It my crime was great, the punish
ment of mv lifelong reiuorsj is most terii
He" I clasped her bowed form in my arms,
and pressed my lip3 again to her llu.died
brow, shuddering at the thought that tjrri
ble had been my fate but tor tho story
and its warnings. Oh, how much dearer
my heart acknowledged her in the utter
hopeless of her faithful sorry than she had
ever been in what I had supposed the
cold pcvfcctncss of character.
Thcro was a quick ring at the door.
My mother gathered about her the heavy
fold of her shawl and then turning upon
mc the appealing glanco of her tearful
eyes, passed from the room. Hunt llencs
ley entered. Ho knelt at my feet, and
whispered pleadingly of the future his
care should make so bright. Involuntarily
I shuddered as I drew my hand from his
elap.
Mr. Hencsicy," I said in a low earnest
tone, " 1 have heard that to-night which
makes the distinction of this World seem

do; not so love you. I caunot bo your
wife."
My words left i:o room for hope, and
he went out siljntly into tho storm. 1
never looked upon hi3 face again.
Eeforc the evening was over, Morgan
Phillips also sought my presence, and his
errand was to say farewell. Sitting beside
mc, my hand in his, he said :
"Hanna, my beloved, I dare not ask
you to be mine, but I will 'not stay and
see you given t. another. 1 leave you to
ycur bright destiny.
There was jiot much pride left in my
heart then, and I said in a whisper so low
that only ears of love could catch the
sound :
" Morgan, stay, for my sake, stay !"
" Oh ! what an expression of beautiful
light and eagerness, of morning sunshine,
broke ever his face then. Rut the rest is
my secret. I am Mrs. Morgan Phillips
now. 1 hear of Hunt Hencsicy some
times, standing among the proudest and
noblest of the land. Rut his name brings
with it no regrets. Dearer than the brighj
skies of far-off Italy, are the blue eyes
that meet my own so lovingly; sweeter
than the wholo world's homage, the tones
which murmur, as stand among idols
" my wife, my beloved !"

intimate with him at that time of whom
