FAITIIFL'L TO THE FAST. '•I eay. old fellow, you'd better come, i Make it the last of August, aod we'll gc in for the first fresh and lively ; I'll back Curley Moor against the whole country . for genuine sport, and you can't stop iQ " London while the game's about/' It trust have been this argument which induced Arthur Goldtbrope to go down to Hartely ball, when the seasou in towD was at an end, and it was uo longer any use tnakicg morning calls in Belgrave square. The p'easaut time was over, the long rides, the happy talks were pa9t; Lillian Hartley had gone, aRd had left \ behind her all sorts of passionate love raging in Arthur's heart. Of course she . knew he would follow her. Had not there been a tender pressure of the hand and a wistful look wheo they parted, that made Arthur instantly remeuuber Fred's in vita tion. rnd resolved to accept it? Did not 1 he whisper as much, and did not he make his appearance punctually at the given day, when Lillian was so terribly surprised to see him, and had no idea he would care to sp?re the time for such poor sport as Curley Moor could offer. It was a glorious autumn ; never had the mornings been more bright and clear or the Dight more cairn and still. The shooting did uot go for much, and Fred was very properly disgusted —but Arthur leuiembered those summer days as the happiest of his life. If it had, hitherto beeu pleasant to have Lillian in a fashion able lira wing-room, or a crowded park, what was it to wander through ehady lanes and smooth paddocks by her side?—to have her giaucing up at him from a co quettish straw hat, with the sunlight just ii_ r htiag up her dimpled chin, and scat tering goid dust over her brown curls ! What was it to hold her little bare l.aod and steal a kiss in the moonlight, when ihe croquet was over, and everybody ■ju?t took a turn before going in Ar thur began to wonder where his skepti cism about love had gone to; how he had used to laugh at the tender passion ; and here was he. almost trembiiDg when he heard a certain step upon the stairs, and greedily coveting a little glove he had -to/en a night ago. Thank heaven, that however wise and knowing we get in our toilet alioo, we all of us at some tune or i other are willing to lay down our wisdom and worship blindly Perhaps the ob ject is often unworthy, perhaps in after years we marvel at the iufatuation ; but we knew purer, happier thoughts while the deiusiuu was upon us ; we were lifted out of outselves, we thought we recog nized something higher and better; for a time we seemed to fcrget the selfish,gras ping world, and through our love were lifted nearer to holiness and God. The promised fortnight fiewon to three weeks ; every day Arthur felt he must go to-morrow, when it came the threatened separation seemed harder; he thought he could have lingered on forever in idledal liance at Lily's side What could man want more, with such a companion and the "Idyllis" for literature ? Was there business or tnonej to be thought of! Had not the world changed to Arcadia? would not the sun always shine, the birds sing, the Sowers bloom ? Could death, decay, blight and seperation be only hanging off a little time before it broke through the - dream ? At length an imperalivesummonscame from home ; the fiat had gone forth, the lovers must part. Goldthrope senior was a wealthy Lcodon merchant, whose for eign trade was principally Indian ; at this precise juncture some important misun derstanding had arisen with the branch establishment, aod it wa9 necessary a principal should go over and settle the matters Mr. Goldthrope delegated this office to bis son. ' It will admit of no delay," he wrote, -'come back instantly to town. Make your arrangements and start by the next mail. As regards your engagement with Miss Hartley, leave that till you return from India; when you come back, you will be my partner.and at liberty to please yourself in that particular." Arthur showed this letter to Lillian's father. It was not a cordial one, perhaps but Mr. Goldthrope was a reserved,purse proud man, and 11 he offered no congrat ulations, at leat he made no obstacles to his son's happiness. ''You will let us correspond ?" pleaded Arlur; ''you will lei me consider her mioe the instant I return to claim her? I can not go if our engagement is not to be binding—" Mr. Hartley gave his consent and the lovers parted. The spell was broken.— Arthur rushed home, and iu a little time announced his departure. Lillian put his first letter in her bosom, and wander-; ed once more along the old pathway thar they had so often trodden together; a cold wind 9h>ok the trees, dry autumn leaves fell thick and fast; the glory of the sum mer had gone past; he might have taken the sunshine with bim, it was 69 dreary; now he had gone. Time epid on—Arthur arrived at hii journey's end ; he found there that the, Qeboied to ifye fritjeipUs of Jrye Iktyocrqctj, god Ipc of Ijjohiiiiy, gi}? COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA,, TUESDAY NOVEMBER 14, 1865. business would take longer than he had hoped ; delay was unavoidable; and in th 3 meantime he had Lillian's letters to look forward to, to long for, aod to read | over and over again. | At last a longer space than usual elapsed ; after Arthur's last letter. Was he com , ing home ? Had everything been sud denly arranged, and might he r.t any uio iment stand at their own door? The In dian mail came in, but it brought no let ter; it was the first omissiou Lily re studied the last letter for some faint clue to this mystery, which might perhaps have before escaped her. It was written in good spirits: it expressed the old fond love, the tender reco'lections, the fervent anticipations. He could Dot have forgot ten her. Was there any other cause ? Was he ill ? was he —oh ! to existance hung! to feel that he, too, was mortal, and might die, away from kith and kin. alone, and abroad ! Just then, other troubles fell cn the Hartley family. Fred had turned out wild,aod got heavily into deot. Retrench ments had to be made.to meet his respon sibilities. The bouse in London was giv en up, and the family lived entirely at the old country house. Oue night Lillian stayed out late, wandering in the damp lane She cauie in languid and tired. — She had been visiting au old pensioner of hers, who wa9 dying, and she had loiter ed wearily home. Mrs. Hartley's face turned quite pale as she listened to her daughter's account of the sick woman ; then she quietly sent a messenger for the family physician. When he arri ved,Lil 1- iau had snnk into a heavy stupor on the couch. Ail that night she raved wildly. The next morning she groped feebly on the coverlid for her mother's hand, and cried out that the daylight would never come ; was the night to last forever ? She was blind. Small-pox was raging in the villiage, and Liliian brought it home with her. A month after, when the disease had spent its rage, und Lillian was feebly returning to health, there was a letter from Arthur waiting for her. It lay for several days in her mother's desk before she ventured to deliver it. Liliian would never thoroughly realize the fearful ca lamity that had befallen her until the ' letter cite could ue*cr read would be put in her hand She had not recovered her sigh:! Her fair, pale face was unscarred and the blue eyes looked as tenderly as! ever, but they looked into darkuess, Lill- : ian was blind. Heaven ooiy knows the agony the poor girl must have suffered when they told her fate. In utter prostration, rhe turn ed her face to the wall, and praeyd to die I Better that Arthur should come home aud find ODly a gravestone, than a useles bur ; den with whom he might fee! himself bound in honor to keep his promise. Oh !, why had she ever recovered to this fear- • ful gloam, this eternal night; to feel I warmth, and yet know no summer; to touch flowersaudyet. not know them. She grew resigned at last, and bade bor moth er read her lover's letter. Even in that kind voice it sounded strange and con strained ; the familiar,loving words seem -! |ed forced and unnatural; the light and cheerful spirit of the writer could never have been conveyed in the mere words; it was the well-known band-writing that ; made the familiarity. Let any of my readers copy out a love letter ia a Dew hand, and the charm is gone; the words the thoughts arc there, but all individu ality with the writer is gone. Think of a printed love letter, and how little it touches us, bow entirely the spell is bro ken, how we sneer at the want of punctu-j ation, the repetitions, the absurdity of the whole performance! But Arthur said he was coming home, j he said it with no congratulations, no ea- j gerness ; he did not even dwell on their meeting. Ah, perhaps it would be best that they should never meet. If ho had grown cold to her, if he bad changed, let her think to the end that her misfortune and not his inclination broke the sacred tie between them. And yet she must feel his presence once more; she thought she could bear her lonely life after that, and live to hear of him happy and pros perous. Let them meet and she herself would break their engagement. So she begged those around her not to let the knowledge of her misfortune reach his home; and she waited patiently for bis return. Weeks and months dragged on. Lillian grew well and resigned to what was inev itable ; trouble bad taught her a lesson which in her prosperity she might never have learned she found she could still be her mother's companion, and her father's greatest pleasure ; they grew happier when they saw her smile again, and heard her singing in the sunshine that she could only feel. Never had she been so dear to tbem as now—never had she felt their love as she felt it now. Time passed—Arthur should have arri ved. but neither he nor his friends made anv sign; once Mr. Hartley, meeting old Goldthropo, asked him point blank where Arthur was. The old mans face darkened and he said he did not know. "Ho has come home," thought Mr. Hartley, "and dare not tell me that he wants to break his engagement with my poor girl." Summer bad como round again. One calm evening Lillian wandered sluwly and cautiously over the smooth paddock; she hatkbeen accustomed to blindness now, and could find her way about, with no other guide than the old Newfoundland dog Nero, who might have known bis mistress's misfortune, he was so careful never to leave her side. Lillian sat down on the rustic seat beneath the garden wall. As the twilight crept on she could hear the jug jug of the nightingale, and the faintwhirr of the broad winged moths as they flew past. Nature seemed draw ing a deep breath after the stil', hot day, a9|the faint breeze swept dreamily through the thick foliage. It was on such anoth er evening as this that Arthur had told his first love. A tffemor passed through Lillian's frame as she remembered that she could see everything then, the fading light, the golden sky in the far west, the gathering clouds, the green tree3 —ah.how little she could koow of nature now ! how life itself had changed, and all the brisht ness gone. Suddenly tbe dog at her feet sprang up with au aDgry, bark, and dashed iuto an opposite thicket; Lillian started up, and tried, poor girl to look her hardest ia the direction of the sound. Presently a man issued out of the gloom, and stood with in twenty yards of her heeitatng to ap proaeb, or waiting for some sign of recog nition. He wore a broad-brimmed bat slouched over his face, add a long cloak bung from his snoulders ; but the dog knew him, and crouched with a wbiue at his feet. Why then did she stand so motionless? There was ouly one expla nation : she did not know him. Who would know him now? Who could real ized the fearful change? He stole a little nearer through the tall grass ; he could see her white figure distinctly, and her face was towards him; even her eyes seemed to look at him, yet they did not seem conciousof his presence She Waved her hand and called tHo Xoro looked in his old master s face, Mute ly asking why he stayed behind, and then obedient to Lillian's second call, be weat slowly after her. The stranger urew a hard breath.watch ing the pair as they passed beneath the old eluts ; at the gate the dog turned once more and looked back, then trotted on. Arthur sat down on the seat Lillian had left, and covered his face with his hands. An hour later the broad, full moou lit up the fields and lawn, and threw sharp shadows of the overhanging branches on the carriage drive, Arthur stele softly io the front lawn; the old fashioned win dows of the drawing room were open on the grass, and he could see distinctly into the room. Mrs. Hartley was reading by tho lamp ; Lillian sat in a comparative shadow playiQg the piano, no notes on the staod. Presently Arthur recognized the air it wa* one of his old favorites that he had beared her piay a dozen times. Did she remember who had once listened to it so lovingly ? Was it left for him to break the spell of her happines, by betraying his hideous secret ? Ah better that she should have forgtten him ; better that he should bear all tho pain, than that she should ever feel a particle of tho horror he had gone through. "I will see her father," he thought: "I will explain it to him, and leave it in bis hands to decide between us. lie cannot wish to spare her the shock of seeing me more than I do; he cannot be harder on me than fate has already been ; and at least 1 have seen her once again." The entrance of a servant disturbed tbe quiet trio in the drawing room. "If you please, sir, a geutloman wishes to sea you in the library." "To see me?" ejaculated Mr. Hartley, only half awake. "Show hioi up, Ste phen." "He particularly wishes to see you alone,if you please, sir, and woulda't send up hts name," said the man. "Very well, I'll come," said Mr. Hart ley ; and he weat. "I wonder who it can be?" said Mrs Hartley, louking up over her spectacles. Lillian did not know, and resumed her playing. A little time back such a visit or would have made her tremble, uow hopo and expectations had laid too long dormant to be so easily aroused. In the library Mr. Hartley found the tall stranger standing on tbe Hearth-rug he still wore the slouched hat, and bis face was too completely shaded to be rec ognized, hardly to be seen. Something, however, in his bearing struck the old man, aud he started back. "Good Heavens he exclaimed, "tis not r> "It is Arthur Goldthrope," returned the stranger, iu a low voice, and extend ing bis band. "My dear boy I'm io delighted bo sea you I" cried the old man ; but take off jour hat, let me see your face——'" "Not yet,"' said Arthur gloomily, "you will see me soon enough} you have recog nized me with my hat on ; let that suffice for the present." Mr. Hartley stared; then he began to wonder if he knew of his daugter's misfor tune. "You dont ask after Lillian/' be said, presently. "I have seen her already," replied Ar thur "Seen her!" said Mr. Hartley. "Yes, in the meadow ; but she did not know me; we were quite near, and she passed me like a stranger," cried Arthur "and yet you remember me." Mr. Hartley sat down with a deepsich. Arthur did not know, then, the painful task that lay before hitn still. "No wonder my poor girl did not know you, Arthur." "Yes, yes, L know I am changed, fear fully, horribly changed !" exclaimed the young man, passionately; "and I come to ask you whether I had even better let Lillian see me again. I will go away, if you bid me ; I will make any sacrifice to spare her the shock. Only think first of all I have had to bear, before you decide, think bow I loved her, and how the thot' of this meeting, which I shrink from now has never been absent from me, night nor day, since we parted." j "You misunderstand me, Arthur," said the old man. "It is not you who should shrink from meeting my poor daughter. You havo nothing to fear, nothiug to shrink from." "XothiDg to fear !" repeated Arthur; then with a sudden effort" he threw off his hat. Look at me, before you say that. Mr Hartley did look, then half started back, still staring at the altered face be fore him. "Good heavens, it is very fearful" cried Mr. Hartley, "it is very shocking." "It is fearful!" repeated the unfortu nate young man, bowing his head upon his hands. Two years ago Arthur Go'dthrops was a very handsome man. The face that Lillian had last looked at when they part ed was fresh with health, and color, and manly beauty, now he was terriblv and strangely ugly. The straight features the noble, broad brow, the dark full eyes were still the same; but the skin had altered completely from a healthy red and white to a bluish iudigo gray ; face, neck and hands, indeed his eutire bodv, had undergone that complete aud fearful change. Mr. Hartley drew a long breath as he recovered a little from his astoaishment. "I don't understand it, my bov," said he. "Won't it come off ! Bless "my soul it really is a most extraordinary thing. I knew a different climate would do a great deal; but anything so straoga as this 1 never heard of in my life." "It was cot the climate," said Arthur, sadly "let m 3 explain to you how it oc curred. Directly after I had dispatched ray last letter but oce to Lillian, I caught the yellow fever that was then raging at one of the stations I had occasion to go to aod never expected to survive; the na tives were dying around me by dozens.aud i I resigned myself to meet the worst as : courageously as I could. The disease with me developed itself in its worst form,there appeared no chance open for me; it seem ed fated I was to die in a foreign land, away from home and my dear Lillian. At last one of the native doctors told me there was one remedy for my stage of the disease that was sure to core me effectual ly; but which left behind it such terrible results that nearly all preferred death to such a cure. This remedy consisted of a certain preparation cf mercury being rnb bed all over the unhappy patient at reg ular intervals ; the result would bo to change the white European skin to this miserable blue gray tint. At first you may imagine that I shrank from so re pulsive a cure, but by degrees I grew more accustomed to the idea until it grad ually lost much of its repulsiveness. Life is very dear to the most of us, and I seem- ; ed to have so much to lose. At any rate I reasoned that if,when I amsodisfigured life is to terrible to be endured, and my fridnds shrink from me I can only die then, as I should die now. So I gave my consent. The doctor commenced his work aod cured me, but left me what I am." Arthur Goldthrope paused, aud Mr. Hartley hold out his hand. "You did right Arthur," said he ; "and now we have to thank Heaven for what,l had thought my greatest misfortune. — Lillian shall never know of this chaDge." "Never know of this change. "May I then never see her ' Ah, sir you speak tco kindly, and yet at the same time ruin all my hopes." "My poor boy, the choice does not lie in my hands," returned Mr. Hartley, sol emnly. "You have told yonr tale; now bear me. You too, have something terri ble to hear—Lillian is quite blind." ' Blind l" exclaimed Arthur. "Oh < I - * ■ TERMS.- -$1.50 PER ANNUM. Heaven I this is very fearful; and yet, it it is better so! She will never know m as I am." An hour later Arthnr and Lillian sat side by side; the first rapture of that un expected meeting was over. "And to think that after all my prayer® you should have been near this afternoon and I not know it!" said Lilliao. "You would not have known me, mj darling," said Arthur. "They tell me that you are changed.— Arthur," said the young girl, "let me touch your face. Ah ! my love there is no change here so terrible as mine. 1 am so useless, so dependent." "Lillian, learn to tbaok God as I do for that calamity," said Arthnr. "In your love you picture me now as I once wat} if you could see me as I am, you would ! >hrink from me with horror. Every houf i of my journey borne I have pietured your i averted looks, until I learned to dread the progress we were makiag, since it brought me Dearer to you aud your aversion.— When I arrived, I dared not letyoukuotf I was here. I have lingered about for * weeks, dreading to hasten our meeting, and trying to teach myself that I must en - dure life without you. My darling, can you ever bear to know what people will say when they see us together—you so beautiful, I so repulsive ?" "Do you love me as you used to do f" said Liilian. creeping closer to him. "Love you !" he repeated. "I seem to have no thought in life but love for you./ "Let us be together, Arthur," said Lilll , ian. "Let us live for each other, away from the world ; never let it part us agaio, Ar thur." "Never again, Lillian" said he; "we will be faithful to the last."
