He has come to this cottage near the Catskills for the avowed purpose of makine a few sketches, nnrl nhnni . only bit of Nature's beauty he has been able to fix his attention upon is Jean nette Faber's face. Jeannette is very sweet and fair and good, but! There is a sort of half acknowledged previous engagement to a wealthy cousin, too, of which ho is constantly reminding him self. " " John pulls his dark mustache and knits his brows a he thinks of all this. If only but "ifs" are insurmountable objects in men's lives very often, as we aui Know. Meanwhile Jeannette, all unconscious that she is the object of such earnest cogitation, has jubilantly filled her apron, and is returning to 'tho house. She is glad that there are so many roses in the garden. Everything s.eems bare and meagre and poor enough in the house, and she often wonders that Mr. Jjwignt, accustomed to wealth and lux ury as he evidently is, does not become disgusted with it all, and leave them. But she is very, very glad that he does not. There is the money he pays them, to begin with; and then he is so gentle manly and entertaining always that it is a continual pleasure to see him and hear him. But if the house is meagre in its ap- pointmenU, the garden is "a thin" of beauty," and a joy. if not foajverf at least for almost three quarters of the year. It is the time of roses, and Jean nette keeps the dining-room and Air. Dwight's little "den" more artistically beautiful than rich tapestries and up holstered furniture could over make them. She sees that Mr. Dwight is pleased, and her soul is glad within her. She is no hysterical, impractical novel heroine, this little Jeannette Faber, but a simple, modest, well-balanced girl, who can rejoice in such small things as the approval and good will of her friends. They are very poor, her in valid mother and Jeannette. but it is such an old story that Jeannette has become accuomed to poverty Ion" ago, and does not mind it much. She has a strong suspicion that wealth and eaa are desirable things, of course, and has even tasted the bliis of them on short visits to her school-friends; but for all that she has never permitted the trailing serpent of di-eontent to enter her Eden. John Dwight that bright July after noon, seems verv much discontented with himself an j w ith e cr body and everything. There is a lonir " letter from his lady-mother in hispocktt, and its contents n.ne upset him more than a little. "How did sho find out, I wonder?" he thinks in a semi-provoked way. Then, very decidedly, "But what litter nonsense! I'm about as near to falling in love with Jeannette Faber as I am to flying to the moon, and I'e no doubt she thinks the samo way about Jlr. John Dwight 'V Now he is as far removed from a cox comb as man can well be", but for sll that he has not been able' to help t-eeing how Jtannette's gray eyes light up when he is near. Ah, no,!

But later on she allows bitter thou "his to enter her heart. " "The sketch was but the work of an idle moment," she says to herself; "he did not care any more for it than to throw it aside when it was finished." And sho recalls these words of Burns: 3co. modest, crimson-tipped flow'r. Thou a met me In an evil hour: lor I maun crush amang tho stance Thy slender stem." I don't think John deserves much pity at our hands, but it is true that he w more unhappy than Jeannette. He leets that he has been a coward and a scoundrel toward her, and false to his own heart He knows now, when it is too late that this fair, innocent "moun tain aaisy" is more to him than any other woman can ever be.
