HOW I CAME TO BE AN OLD BACHELOR. How AVftS it that I enmo (o bo nn old bndiclor t IN ot because of Jiatiny wo men, I mil sine, for I llkctl them very intii'li, nntl ncvci' could lmvc apoken lb ono rudely or discourtoously for my life. Ab nearly ns I know It wns in this wlso : Jly futlicr tlictl, leaving n fnmily nf cntiiiren, a who, nntl nn oui inllicrnntl mother, of whom only myself wis able to earn n sinning, liu nan never saved any tiling. So, nftcr tho first great grief, when wo had calmed down nnd were nblo to look matters quietly In tho fnee, there wns it wretched sort of nvosnect for us. 1 wns only nn accountant, mtd had n youiigfel- lows nnuii 01 wasting my small salary in n thousand dlilcrcnt ways. I had been "paying attention," too, to EUio Hall, who, yolllitr and childish as filio wns. had a way Hint somo girls do have of IcadliiL' their admirers into extravagance. Of nil tho trials of thnt novcr-to-be-lbrgot-tcu time, I think thu greatest wus tip pcariiig niggardly in thoso baby bluo evea. I did nut mind weiirlncr nlnln riiIIh. discarding Md gloves, nnd rcnouiicing tlio on era : ml not to lav uioso uounitcls. and books, nntl music, mid dainty bits of Jewelry, nnd multitudinous trilles at Kblc's feet wns n very (crriblo ordeal. 1 passed it, though ; and if ever man had reason to ho thankful I had. for tho ac- qnlsltlyo little, beauty jilted mo in a month for Tom Tandem, who was rich anil lavish of gifts, nnd who rnn nwny from her lifter n mni'i'Iago of ten months. I worked day and night ami managed to keep tho wolf from tlio door. Sometimes I used to think how well it was for Klsio that sho had not really lov ed me. for she could linvn hnil unllilnf but a dismal prospect of wcarlnjf outlier youth in n dreary, hopeless eiiiriiireniont to ono too poor to marry. That wns un til Tom ran on. Then 1 thought It would huvo boon oven better for her to hnvo shared our lmmblo homo ami poor faro and tho lovo I could liavo given her, than to bo deserted so. And 1 pitticd hor, as If lio had not proved herself heartless. Itut I never wont near hei',' of cotirso ; mm i nuvur even epoKo oi tier to my iiiuiiiur.

Wo had been young togother. though ho Was really older than 1; and wo had boon closo friends ouco, but a roving lit had soUed him, and wo had not inoFfor years. I know ho had marrlod a young Kentish girl, and know no more ; hut now ho told mo that sho was dead, and that bis deatli would leave a daughter au orphan. "She Is notqulte penniless," ho wroto: "for. hor. mother had a llttlp Income Which, poor as I was, I was novcr bruto enough to racddlo with and it has do scondea to her. But I liavo boon a roll log stone; gathering no moss nil my llfo, ana we have never staid long enough In one place to mako friends, Will yon bo her guardian? It is a dying man's last request." And than ho wrote solno word, com lug from his heart, I know, which, being of myself, I cannot quote even hero; I could not thliik that "I even deserved them. 1 And tho result of that lottcr, nml of another from tho lawyer who hail Annie iitiutcr s lutio lortimo in cuargo, Witt that ono soft spring day found mo on board of n trrcat steamer which lav tit rest, nftcr her voyngc.

Audi took her homo to tho old hotiso nnd to mv mother. 1 tho' only of those ; somehow, 1 never thought of Ashton. Shall I over forget how sho brightened tlio somuro rooms i now, .n ncr sad ness woro nwnv. sho Mini; to us In tho twilight! How strangely n something which mndo the ret inn homo nml the long hours of the evening seem so much imglitcr than tlicy had over liccu iictorc, stole Into my life! 1 never went to sleep In church now : 1 Kent awako to look at Ollvo Hunter to listen to her pure con tralto ns sho joined In tho singing. Some times I caught her eye, her great untatli onnblo brown cya; for sho had u .habit of looking at me. "Was sho wondering how a face could ho so stpru and grim? 1 used to ask myself. Ashton used to look at her also. Ho had been away when sho that enmo to us, nml, when ho returned, sho was n grand surprise to him. "Oh, how lovely sho is!" he had said to me. "Sho it very pretty," 1 replied. Ashton laughed. ".May I nover bo an old bachelor, if it brings mo to railing such a girl "very pretty," ho said ; nnd 1 felt conscious thnt my cheek Hushed, and felt angry that ho should liavo spoken of mo thu.'', though I had never rated before. They liked each other very much, those two young things. They were together n great deal. A pretty picturu they mndo in tho Venetian window In tho sunset. He, n fntr-halrcd, blue-eyed, Saxon looking youth ; sho so exquisitely dark and glowing. l.very ono lilted her. Kvrn my old clerk, Stciihen lladley, used to sny her presence lit tho olllcc in on: than n doen lamps, the nearest approach ton poetical speech of which old Stephen wus ever known to bo guilty : nnd I nover know how much sho wns to mo until one even ing, when, coming homo earlier than usual, I saw, in thnt Venetian window wlicro Ashton nnd Olive had made, so many pleasant pictures for me, one that I never forget that I novcr shall forget as long ns 1 llvo. Sho stood with hor bark to me. Ash ton was kneeling nt her feet. Tho sound of tho opening door dissolved tlio pic ture ; but 1 had seen it, nnd I stole away to hide tho stab that it had given inc. 1 sat down In my own room and hid my faro in niv hands, and would liavo been glad to hldo it beneath my colliu lid. 1 know not that I loved Olivo Hun ter ; that I loved her not as an old man might lovo n child, but ns a young man might love the woman who oti'dit In in: his wife better than I had loved KMo If till : for It was not boyish nation, but cnrncsi, ncartieii tovc. I in lovo! I nroso nnd looked In tho mirror, and my broatt shouldered relleC' lion uiusiieti ueioro my gn.c. Tho snrinir tlmo of niv life had down and my summer had como and gbnc.iiud in tho ntitiimn I lind dreamt of lovo's hud and blossom. I knelt bosldo my bed and prayed that i iingm not tiato my iiroiner mat l might not oven envy him, ills touch up on my door startled me. Ho enmo In with something In his manner not usual to him, ami sat down opposite me. l iir n few moments wo wcro silent. Then ho sold spcnklng rapidly nnd blushing iiKongin icu, oiti lellow, voti you saw mo making a fool of myself just now, "I saw you on your knees," I said. "And thought mo a slllv fellow, oh V Hut you don't know, Ned, Von can't un derstand you've been so calm and cool all your llfo through, von know. She's driving mo mad. Ned, I io bellovo tho likes mo, but eho won't say vcs. I'd give my right hand for her love. I hunt huvo it, and I think you can help me, Ned, From something sho said, I bellovo sho thinks you would disapprove : perhaps that you aro ono of thoso old fc lows who want every ono to marry lor money Tell her you're not, Ned dear old fel low tell her you huvo no objection, ami i'ii novcr lorgei it iiiucou i won't i" "loll hor I liavo no objection." I re, ueatcd mechanically. "You know you tiro master here, nnd as much my father as If von really wcro ono instend of n brothor," said Ashton. "If 1 did not know how kludlv you had always felt to us both, I shouldn't con lido in you, for it's a serious thing to ho in lute, lmi. mill vuii utiiv lll.lllk liuuveil you know nothing of It." Know nothing of it All. If ho could liavo read my heart Just then ! "I'll do what I can. Ashton." I said at last. "I'll try my best." And ho Ami" his arm about mo in his own boyish fashion, nnd left mo iilouo alono with my own thoughts. Ho had said truly I had been llko a fit. thcr to him, I was old enough to bo hers, and no ono should know my silly dream. I would hldo it while 1 lived. As I had said onco. "1'vo only tho old folks nnd tho children now," 1 said thou, "I will only think of mother nml of Ash ton. I.ct my own llfo bo as nothing : I hnvo lived for thorn if needs be, I will dlo for them." I Hut I would not sco or speak to Olivo that night, nor until tno next nay was quito tioiio. Alien, in ino iwuigiii, i sat besido her and took her hand, "Ollvo," I said, "I think you know that Ashton loves you, I am sure ho has told you so. And you can you not lovo himV" Sho drow hor hand from mine, and said not ono word. "I should rcjolco in my brother's ban plncss. I should think ldni hnpplor in having your lovo than any thing olso could mako him," I said, "I told him I would toll you so." Aud then sho spoke. "You wish mo to marry Ashton V Itcpronch was in tlio tone leproach aud sorrow. "If you can love him, Olive," I said, Sho arose, Sho seemed to shrink from me, though in tlio dark I could not sec nor nice. "I do not lovo htm," sho said. And wo were still ns death. Then sud denly Olive Hunter began to sob. " on have hecit very kind to me. I lovo you nil," sho snld : "hut I cannot slay hero now. l'lenso to let mogosomc- wiicro rise, i mini l cannot nvo hero." "do from us, Olivo '" 1 said. "Nay, wenro no tyrants ; mm once assured you do not lovo hint. Ashton will " "Hush!" b!io panted "litish I Plenso lot lilDt'nnu'nt'l lMensnlpl. innnnnwnv'" Tho moon was rising. Her new-horn light fell upon Ollvc'n face. I'erhnps its whiteness mndo her look so pale. Sho leniit ngnliut tho wnll wlthhcrllt tlo hand upon her heart, her unfathoii nblo eyes full or pain. How had I hurt her so ? A new thought struck mo. "Perhaps you lovu some ono else, Ollvo!" And nt that sho turned her faco from me, and hid it in Iter hands. "Too much Ino much. Vott might liavo spared mo that," sho said. "I.ct mo go away. I wlh you hadncver brought mo here. And 1 nroe nml went to her. I bent over the woman I loved. 1 touched tr with my hand; her soft hair brushed my check. "Olive," I snld, "if coming hero has brought pain uiion ypu,I with I had not. 1 would huvo tiled to mako you happy." And my volco trembled, rnd my hand shook, ami sho turned her faco townrds mo again and looked into my eyes. What sho saw In initio I do not know tho truth. I think. In hers 1 read this: I was not old to her ; not too old to be loved. I stolo mv arm about her ; sho did not uutwliiolt. I titlcrotl lirr titiiiic, "Ollvo," huskily. Afterwards, I told her of my striigglo with myself, not then. 1 said, "Ollvo, I lovo you, but It cannot bo that you euro for me. 1 am old enough to be your father." And ngoln I saw In herrves tho happy truth, nnd took her to my heart. Hut wo kept our secret for a while, for wo both loved Ashton, and both know thnt his wound wns not too deop to Hud n halm; nnd within n year, when the boy brought homo a bride, a pretty cron turo whom he loved, nnd who loved him, 1 clnlmed Olive.
