ritty Dean's Offer.
'You know, Aunt Lizzie, the silly
speeches I made before I went away
lout ha:ving an offer. \Well, though
I knew it was silly, I could not help
hoping that I might have one to tell
the girls about wlhen I calte back. I
thought tlhat it would be so nice to be
knealt to on the beach in the moon
light, and some one beg me to love
him, and pity his misery, and all that;
and then I had made up what I thutllht
the prettiest speech in reply, telling
himn that I was very sorry, but I could
never love him ; would always think of
hiim as a friend, and closing by asking
if I had ever led him to think I would
give him a different reply. And I
- thought of this so much, that when I
reached East I lanmpton, I looked eagerly
around the table when we first came
down to breakfast at Mr. J's. to see
what young genthlnemin there were.
]htt there was not. one--nlt a single
one. So at lust I began to think of
of Mr. M urray.
John Murray, child ! WVhy-'
' Auntie, auntie, plenss, wait I can't
bear it now. I did ,not think of AMr.
Murray till lie began to be with me a
good deal, to walk with me, arind sit
under the trees with Inu after dinner.
And he was so pleasant nad agreeab(Ile,
and the-re4 wasn't any one else, and I
fiked nlim; so it was basier to make him
'think I liked him better than I did.
So I never declined any of hii atten
tions; and I oied to talk anl sing,
and walk with himii, till at last w( were
together nearly all thl tim i'. It was s,
pleasant to have him like 1io, s,, the).

hlie had never breathed her nalme, or ii
spoke of her till to me. Then he said w
he did not believe with those who think 0:
a man who once loved earnestly, should
never love again. 1Ie had given all lc
his love to a mere dream-a boy's to
vision-and it had all come back to t1
his heart; now he should spend it q
upon a truer, wortlhi r object. And s
then hlie told Ino how lie loved me. I1
0, Aunt Lizzie, such words as he spoke 6
then. lie told me how, in the short t
weeks woe.had been together, this love b
had come up in his heart, throwing a
every day an hour, as le saw my li
simnplo, guileless nature opening before b
him. ' Simple, guileless !' when I had 1
boon so artful aniid wicked. Then le a
stopped a minite, and bending forward I
to look into my face, he took both r
my han 1., in his, and said.'
'VWill you be my wife.'
' There was my offer. 0, how I I
wished in that minute that I had never
met hi l--that I had never gone to
East II.-ipton. r I was trembling and
frightened ; the story of that other L
love had made me cry with pity; and
now, how could I be the one to make I
him think all women worthless? I did C
not say a word. I could not. I only l
tried to draw away my hands. But
he held them tightly, and said again :
'Will you be my wife.'
' Then I tried to relnember what I 1
meant to say, and I staninerod out
somiethingi about feeling sorry I could
not love himi, and hoping lie had never r
thought I meant to encourago his atten
tions, and--(), I don't know what I said;
it was all trifling nonsense. Shall I
ever forget his grioved look when I 1
had d(1one ? lie looked into mly (eyes at

K' itty Dean, if you do not love me,

But days passed by, and Kitty only b
looked sadder and paler. She seemned
to take no interest in any one or any
thing. But every lay she would steal f
quietly into my room, as I sit at work, 11
sit down on a cricket at my feeoot, and c
laylher head in my lap, scarcely ever d
4peaking unless in reply to some ques
tion of mine. And so she would sit d
by the hour. And there grew such L
an expressiop of patient sorrow on the
little head, which had always been so e
bright, that I grew sadly troubled. I t
had not though the child had such t
a tender heart, and now she was re4y E
pining away from pity for John Mur
'You must not be so sad, Kit#y,' I I
said one d4y, as she sat in her'luial I
place at my~pt, 'it makes your father I

'You must try tbeo

'If I could only die foar I l
cried passionately. . 1
A new light drawned upon me. Per- I
haps the girl loved Jchn Murray. If I
so, I felt sure she did not know it. i But 1
I thought it was best that she should
make the discovery, otherwise, she
might possibly reject John again, if he
ever wooed a second time.
'Kitty,' said I, 'what was the true
reason for your refusing Mr. Murray's
'Reason ! 'Why, I was not in love
'Never, Aunt Sally!'
'Yet you would die for him?' I said,
She started up.
'What do you mean, Aunt?'
'Thlat you care far htimi mnulre than you
have ownied to yourself yet.'
A sudden blush crimsoned her pale
face, she stood before me in an instant
her bosom heaving, her eyes like those
of a frightened child ; th'll she darted
front tilh house. She must bo alone
witht this new f,uidi truth, for truth I
knew it was now. I sat ilhoe, thinking

usual, and after kissing me "Good
morning,,' she sat down silently at the d'
open window. Suddenly I was started ti
by her exclaiming : w
"Aunt Lizzie ?" f
I turned, and seeing her crinsonod Cl
faco half frightened, half reproachful k
look, I know she had seeon John Murray A
coming in. Sho started towards the tl
door, But I laid my hand on her arm. tl
"You shall not go, Kitty," I said, h
decidedly. "You shall not trifle with al
him again-Stay !"
She stood timid, irresolute, and he b
entered the room. As his eyes fell ti
upon her he started, and a faint color g
tinged his cheek, but he bowed court- n
eously, and held out his hand to her '
(that was for my benefit, who was sup- c
posed to be ignorant of the affair,) ti
Kitty took his offered hand without 1
looking at him. But now the blushes ti
had left her face, and it was very white. "
As John glanced at her, he exolaimed 11
'You have booe ill, Miss Dean.'
B She looked at him, met his anxious ti
gase, and covering her face with her 14
hands, burst into tears. Poor child, si'e tl
halbecome at perfect Niobe of late,John c
Murray looked annoyed. Ilis pride e
would not lot him submitto be pittied ia
by the woman who had refused his huand. 14
His faoo flushed, and holding his headl 'I
high, looked so proud and haidsociii, r
he said : , 1
"I am sorry my presence distresses v
you, Miss l)can. Lot in assure you, 1
if those tears are shed from compassion II
for me, I dohot need themn. 1 noeed no 1

IIoro was a situation! What should t
I do. I was in depair ; and growing i
desperate as le opened the dlor, I whis- I
