"I wisftlito'ea Miss Ijcstrr,". said

dropping her buautif'ul eyes, as though
too tiightened to rasit h'8 glance, and
covering her fise with her hatidi.
"Oliye, my little 0.ive' ho said, with

as they had that morning a week .before,
when Olive Evermont had pelted ancej
Whitnny with them. But Olive horsclf,
as she came out under their drooping
fragrance, and entering the waitiog car
riage, was driven away to her future
home, the grand, gloomy house in which
Vance "Whitney lived Olive herself
had changed very much in that short
week. She looked pale and ill, poor
child, and there w"re great, dark ring?
about tho soft, bright. oven. Vnnco
Whitney led her into Iho houso with
stdtely and ceremonious politeness, ns
though she had already been the wife he
meant her to bcoome-the lady of bis
fcupcrb but gloomy mansion.
Tho ' pretty ohild shrank from him,
though she tried not to, aud a frown dis
torted his regular brows

them to lorget that she was to bo ' his
wifo in time. No very dreadful fate '.hat,
one would think ; for Vanoa Whitney
was a grand and stately J6okinggentla
man, , handsomer than most oi those
whom Olive met. and possessed of great
wealth, lie never weariod her with his
presence cither. , He watched her often
for hours when fho was unconscious of
his sotutiny ; but he spent little time id
her actual society, .. . - :
s Olive grew older' and ,.-recognized
slowly what that fate wag to which she
was destined, she grew silent, and shy,
and uncommunicative, even with her
mot hor. She grow pale as death if her
fuiuro husband but looked at her, or in
soitio rare moments her emotion burst
ull bounds, snd in Iho aolitudo of her
cl'imlur she bewailed ber unhappy fate
to tlio blank walls, : !: t
At eighteen sho was as much lovelier

It wtis iinolher June afterndon when
Vance Whitnty sought her presencoin

exquisite appointments he had himself

waiting, watching the punshino trans-

with fevered flaphes, and her very lips
quivering wun Fupprea excitement,
Sho lifted tho silky black eyelashes,

gently.
Hut she drew it airay from him with
pas-ionate petulance.
lie shut his eyes a momrnt. and his
face, whitned a little. Then he went on:
"I have learned in those years to love
you as 1 believe man Dever loved woman
before. That old love which struok at
the sinews of my manhood, beside this
which I have for you, is like tho brooklet
near the mountain torrent. Till lately,
I thought nothing could make me yield

He put a sealed envelope in her hand.

carriage waits your commands,'' and lefjl
