"But, Fred suppose Iter intelligent, moral, full of natural poetry, ten Jer hearted, graceful, unspoiled by admiration, a guileless, simple lov ing creature." "Olt," said Fred, "a choice col 'taction of virtue and grace. Coun try beauties are always sweet, and o are country cows. No, I tell ynu, if she was as lovely ns an an :el, wilh the Lest sene in the world, still, if unskilled in music ind literature, with no soul ahove '-hums and knitting-needles, I vould not marrv her for a fortune." "Ila ! Ha !" laughed Helen Irving, ! ut it was a very pianissimo laugh, way down in the very corner of her neart. Hidden by the trunk of a ree, she sat reading within a few feet of the ecotist. In another moment tho young man came in sic it. Fred'tt f:ir rimsoned, and he whisre red in ' visible terpidation, 'Do you think the heard me?' No,' rejoined die other audibly she shows no resentment, .lie has not even looked up irnni her book ; you are safejtdi could not have heard you, but what an tingel she is.' Yes Helen was an angel as far as outward beauty might merit the eeonium. hlie 6at half reclining on a rustic Beat, striving to smooth out. tho dimples in her cheeks as she laid her book aside and began to twine a finished wreath of wild roses. Leaning on one white arm. the gnarltd white oak tree a back ground, flowers strewed around her. peeping from her white dress, she sat quite at her ease, apparently unconscious that two handsome young gentlemen were so near lie" Approaching with a low bow. upon which his mirror had set the seal of faultless elegance. Freder ick Lane took the liberty of asking f tne young lady would infrom him where Mr. Irving lived. With an innocent smilo the beauty looked up. Mr. Irving, the only one living n.the village, is my father ' said she rising in a charming and grace ful manner. 'The lurire house on igh ground, half hidden by trees .ind thick shrubbery, that's where we live. I believe it was an acad emy once, that's a sort of a select school, isn't it?' with the most nat ural simplicity, turning to Fml. He replied with another grace ful bow. 'Tell your father,' said he, 'that I shall do myself the honor to call upon him to-morrow, lie will re member me, Frederick Lane, at your service.' 'les sir, I will tell him for you,' said Helen, tuckinir her s:eeve around her pretty arm, and making a rather formal courtesy. Then catching up her booJs, and gather ing the scattered llowers, she hur ried home. 'Now, lather, mother, aunt and sis,' exclaimed the merry girl bound ing into the room where the family .ere at. supper, 'so sure as you utd I live, that Mr. Lane, you talk much, about, is in the village, lie will call here to-morrow the i;rst specimen of a city beau, (as of course he wilM all sentiment, re linement, faultless in kids and spot less in dickey, important and self assured as one of that kind ,can possibly be. Promise me, all of you, that you'll not lisp one word about music, reading and writing his presence, because I have a plan. Father will not, I know, but j'ou, sift, will keep quiet and ask no questions, I will give you that work-box you have coveted so lor.g.' 'Helen, you are not quite respect ful,' said her father. 'Forgive me, dear father,' . and her arms were around his neck. 'I al ways mean well, but I am thought less. There, all is right now,' she added, kissing him lovingly on the temple. 'Come, sis, what say you?' 'Why, on that condition, I'll be as still as a mouse ; but what's your reason?' Ah ! that's my own,' said Helen, dancing out of theroom. Helen sat at an open window, through which rose-bushes thrust their blushing buds, making both a sweet shade and fragrance. The canary, overhead, burst forth every moment in wild snatches of glori ous music. Helen was at work on long blue stockings, nearly finished, i ! and her fingers flew likeLsnow birds. ' t. 'You knit most admirably. Are you fond of it ?' 'Yes, quite, I like it bettei than anything else that is, I pean I can churn well.' - i And do you read much V (Fred's glance had traveled from the cor ners of his eyes over every '.table, shelf and comer," in search of, 6ome books or paper, but not a pajce, nor a leaf, yellow or' rare, repaid Jiis search. 'Oh, yes,' said Helen, with 9 satis fied air. !J ' 'What books J permit me tpaslc.' 'I read the EiCle a good deal,' she said grayely. Tu iUn nil V 'AH, of course not, and whV, do we not find in the Fible ? History, poetry, eloquence, romance the most thrilling pathos blushing, and recollecting herself, she added, with a manner as childish as it lie fore had been dignified, as for the older books, let me see, I've got in my library there's the primer, (counting on her fingers,) second chm Reader. Robinson Crusoe. J 111 It I 1(11 ) JNurery laics, iairy .Stories", two cr three elements ot something, P.iography of si n e person ortber, Mother's Magazine, ar.d ilung William HI. There, isn't thut a good assortment?' ' Fred smiled. Perhaps I don't know as much as those who have went to school more,' she added as if disappointed at the mute rejoinder, but in mak ing broad, and churning butter and keeping house, I am not to be out done.' ' . i The young man felt more iif pity than in love, but his visits did not alwayls so resalt. , lie began' to feel a magnetic attraction and he mainly attributed it to Helen's beauty ; but the truth is her sweet ness and artlessnes of character, engaging manner and disposition quite won the city-bred aristocratic Fred Lane. There was a freshness about everything she said or did. ... The, perplexed as well aa.;tHfrght ed him. ' ' s J Often as he was wondering how some homely expression would be received in good society, some beautiful sentiment would sud denly drop like a pearl from her lips, more remarkable for original ity than for brilliancy. 'If I should fall into the snare,' thought he, 'I can educate her; it will Le worth trying It was useless to combat his pas sion ; so at last he fell at Helen's feet, figuratively speaking, and con fessed his love ibr her. 'I care not, Helen, only be mine,' was his inavailablo answer to her exclamation of unworth'ness, 'how she would appear in society.' They were married, had returned from their wedding tour, and yet at the expiration of their honeymoon, Fred was more in love than ever. At a grand entertainment, given by the relatives of tho bridegroom, Helen looked more beautiful. Her husband did not insist that she should depart from simplicity, and, indeed, without jewels or laces, with that fresh white robe, simple sash of blue, and ornaments of fair moss roe, she was By far the most, lovely creature in the room; As she entered the great saloon, blazing with light, her heart failed her. i 'Shall I love him as dearly,' she asked herself, 'if I find he is ashamed of me ? I cannot bear the thought; but should he overcome! all conventional notions, then I Lave a husband to be honored, and then he shall be proud of his wife.' How she watched him as he pre sented her to one and another.. 'Simple,' whispered a magnifi cent girl, resplendent with dia monds, as she curled her lips and passed by. The observation es caped neither Helen nor her hus band. She looked at him. He smiled a lover's smile, and only drew her closely to his side. Many in that brilliant gathering pitied poor Fred, and wondered why he had martyred himself on the shrine of ignorant rusticity. But he ! O, Joy 1 he seemed only to love her the more as she clung to his arm so timidly ; his noble face expressed the pride he truly felt, he looked as if he would have swept back the scorners with one motion of his hand,Jiad they ven tured one wave too high on the shore of his pride. He seemed to excuse every look, every word, not in strict conformity to etiquette ; and Helen's heart beat high, and tears came to her eyes, when she felt how noble a heart she had won. r 1 I in I to The young bride stood near her husband talkiug in a low tone, when a new comer appeared. She was a beautiful, slightly formed creature, with haughty features. Ill concealed scorn lurked in the brilliant eyes whenever she glanced toward Helen. Once she held sway over the heart of Fred, and hearing whom he had married, she fancied her timo had come. Do you suppose she knows any thing?' whispered a low voice near her. Helen's eyes sparkled, her face flushed indignantly. She turned to her husband. He was gone, speaking at a liUle distance with a friend. Do you play, Mrs. Lnne?' she al;cd. There was a mockinsr tone in her voice. A little,' answered Helen, her cheelis blushing. And ring?' A little,.' was the half reply. ' Then do us a favor,' exclaimed Miss Somersi looking askance at her companions. 'Conic, I, myself, will lead to the instrument. Hark I whose masterly touch! Instantly was the half spoken word arrested, the cold ear and haughty head were turned in listening sur rrise. Such melody ! Such cor rect intonation! Such breadth, depth, and vigorous touch! Who is she? She plays like an angel! And again hark ! A voice rolls a flood of melody ; clear, power ful and passing sweet; astonish ment gains many a fair cheek a deep scarlet. There is a deep si lence unbroken, and silver strains float up: "Aye! caro I not for cold neglect, Thotiph tears unbidden start, And scorn U but a bitter word, Save when it break the heart. If one be true, If one be true, The world may careless be. Since. I may onlv keep thv love, And tell my grief to thee."" 'Glorious voice !' said Fred to his friend, whowith'the rest had paused to listen. -Wlt oXn ehe ', ' The words were suddenly ar rested on his lips. She turned from the piano, and tho unknown was his wife ! 'I congratulate you, Fred,' said the young man at his side, but he spoke to marble. The color had lef his check. He walked skwly toward -her. If he was speechless with amaze ment so was not she. A rich bloom mantled her cheek, triumph mado her eyes sparkle as they never did before; they Hashed like diamonds. A crowd gathered to compliment her. In a graceful acknowledg ment she blended wit and humor. 'How well she talks : who would have though it!' He has found a treasure,' was whispered all around fho room. Meanwhile, Frederick Lane stood like one enchanted, while his little rustic wife quoted books with per fect abandon, admiring this one condemned that. A sedate looking student lost himself in a Latin quotation ; Helen smilingly finished it, and she re ceived a look of eloquent thanks. Bon mots, rapartee, language rich, fancy and imaginary, fell from her eautifu! lips, as if they had re ceived a touch from some fairy, hand. Still Frederick walked by her side like one in a dream, pressed his hand over his bewildered eyes be sure of his senses when he saw her bending, a breathing vis sion of loveliness, over the ham. ner lull arm leaning on its golden strings, heard again that'rich voice, now plaintive with some tender memory, rise and fall in sweet and sorrowful cadence. Tell me,' said he, when alor.e 'what does this mean ? I feel likt one awakened from a dream.' 'Only a country girl,' said Helen, then falling into her husband's arms, she exclaimed, 'forgive me, I am that little rustic that you would sooner die than wed. Are you sorry you married me?' 'Sorry, my glorious wife. But Helen, you could not deceive. Did not understand you had never ' 'Been at an academy" she broke ; 'never took a music lesson, never was taught to sing, all very true, and yet I am all you see me here to-night, myself my own teach er; with labor and diligence, I hope am worthy to be the wife of one good and exalted as I find my hus band to be.' Reader, wouldn't you and I like be there just n5w and hear her story, the laughing between smiles, and pretty face and dimples, as she tells how she banished the piano, books, harp, port-folio, music, all in an empty room by themselves, and locked the door, leaving them to seclusion and dust, while the young country girl without any deep laid scheme, succeeded in convincing the well-bred city gentleman that he could marry a charming rustic, if her fingers were more familiar with the churn and knitting needles than the piano and books ? Coming to the Point. good story is tol l of a Metho dist preacher and the 6toryis true to tne letter who lived almost for ty years ago. He was a bachelor and we could write his real name, tut prcler to call him Smith. lie resisted many persuasions to mar ry, which his friends were con stantly making, until he had reach ed a tolerably advanced age and he himself began to feel the need of, or, at least, to have new ideas of the comfort of being nursed by wo man's gentle. care. Shortly after entering one of his circuits, a mai den lady, alsoof ripe years, was strongly recommended to him, and us ineiKis-atnqn urgea mac ne nail l etter get married, representin that thef ow lady named would probably hot refuse him, notwith standing lis reputed excentrici ties. f "Do yfu think tho?" rcponded the dominie, for he very percepti blyjisped; "then I'll go and thee her." Ho was a man of his word. He rang at the door-bell and -was an swered by tho servant-maid. "Ith MithP within?" briskly but calmly asked the . lover. "Yes, sir. Will you walk in?" "No, I thank you. Bo kind en ough to thay to Mith P that I wish to thpeak to her a moment." .Miss P appeared, and re peated the invitation to walk in. "No, thank you 5 I'll thoon ex plain my business.
