A RIVAL'S VENGEANCE.
Midnight hair and eyes like the deep
azure of a starlit sky; snowy brow. and
rosy cheeks, full-rounded bust, dainty,
taper waist, and straight, haughty figure.
Such was sweet Nettle Gray, my charm
ing sunny friend and companion. How
I loved her! laughing away the long
hours that -else had passed drearily.
When all of heaven was one mass of gray
-when the rain came drizzling, patter
ing down, from "early morn till midnight
hotr" we used to sit in the cozy little
merrily thiat we dd no tow ray
was done till Jennie would bring in
lights and put new coals in the grate.
But one day when the sunshine was
bright and merry birds chanted sweet
roundelays to the light of day Nettie
came in from school, and throwmng down
hat and books, flung her white arms about
-ny neck, and laying her flushed cheek
against mine, whispered :
"0O, Maggie! I'm so happy!"
"Why, Nettie, are you not always
'Yes, dear Maggie, for you have filled
m dear mother's place right well, and
have made me very, very happy."
'What makes you so much happier to
day; was your essay superior T?
'Yes, the golden tribute is mine, and
more;' and she held up the token. Then
her curls nestled still closer against my
neck, and I felt her cheek grow warmer.
I couldn t for the life of me tell what it
was, but something made my heart stand
still, and I drew her closer to me lest I
mlight lose her.
'Well, my child, what is it ?'
'Maggie, you remember tal!, handsome
Harry Floyd, with whom half the girls
in school are in love, and who flirted so
desperately last winter witi that little
coquette, Sue Morton, and haughty Ag
nes Staunmore, whbse heart was supposed
to be one solid flint t'
'Well, one day I was sitting in the lit
tle cave, by the river side, my portfolio
on my lap, just ready to begin my. prize
poem, when I heard footsteps and voices
approaching me, and peeping through
the vines I saw Harry Floyd and Ned
Wallace. 'Madame de Vincent has of
tered a prize of a golden chain and medal
to any young lady who shall write the
best poem on a given suniject--one which
all hearts, sooner or later, bow befre
one which tmakes fools of wise men and
augels of demons!' was tNed's very em
phatic spteech. Yotu know Snejilted lhttn
last winter. 'Well, Ned,' ansewered Har
ry, you know I'm to graduate and see
my twenty-fifth birthda.t on the same
day, and I've determined to marry the
girl that takes the prizre, for she must
know how to love, whio cant write ont
such a theme !' And WVallace said some
thing that sounded like "conceit," and I
leard no mollre, lbult wenlt to work with
zeal I never knew helfore, to, write my
poem. Well, Maggie, when tile glitter
ing chain was thrown about my neck to
day, I looked over to where Hlarry was
sitting, and tas I met his approving gaze.
I think the crimson on my dress ontri
valed the blushes of the rose in my hair,
and I did not dare to raise my eyes again.
But to-night, when I was coming hlord,
I met Harry at the door, and we took
the shady walk through the grove-the
path by tihe river. We walked very
slowly, and Harry bent down to whisper
in my willing ears: 'Nettie, will you be
my wife ?' and O Maggie! dear Maggie !
what could I say but 'yes!' since he was
bound to have his own way t'
I brushed back her curls, and kissed
my gentle Nettie. and tear drops would
gather in my eyes; for I thought of a sun
ny day, six years Lefore, when Arthur
Fay asked me that sane question, and I
said "yes,' and wondered why lihe never
canme back from the east to fulfill the
The days went by, and lovely Nettie
grew yet more ,ovely from the li:.ht in
her happy heart.
It was utild, beautiful Indian sunmmer.
I iell asleep in one of the deep-curtained
windows of the library, when Nettie's
voice awoke me, and I heard her sing
that beautiful "Twilight Hour," ending
"Haste ! haste o'er thie sunmmer-tide,
Swiftly our Ioant will glide,
Thlou my fondl trust and guide,
O'er thle bloe sea!"
And, looking up, I saw HTarry lay his
hand nupo. her head; and gazing upon her
lhappy, smiling face, slowly and sadly-
so sadly, that it seemedl thie fiuneral knell
to my dlarling-he said : 'Nettie, you
must pardon mte, but I dtlo not love youS!
I thought I ldidtl, Iut now y'o mtnust torget
me ! You are too bright and fair to ibe
mty wife, andt you will soon see motte oth
er far more worthy of your guileltss
young heart than I, and you'll he hapltpier
Nettile looked calmly into his e.yes,
while he wsas speaking, andi wlthen he said
"good-ty,'' I heard a wild, atd latgh
ring out upon the evening air, and saw a
face--as white as thle marble slab in the
village churchl-yard, markedt : "My moth
er"--flit away from sight. It was too
sudtden ifor her thus to Iawake fromt her
happy dream; but I didt not follow her.
for I kne n that she wouldtl prefer solitudet
there, and when ten. was brought in, I
took it alone.
The night was wretchedly imeeplesh. o
ine. It seemed as though the mlorlning
should never dawn; so I got up. and push
ing back the dark curtains, drew my
great arm-chair up . tthe window, te
watch the stars fade front the east. How
miserably slow the world s vetled to turn I
I never knew but one night so long, be
fore I 'But all things must have an emdi.,
I sighed, as I shifted my position, andt
noted a little belt of gray spanning till
horizon. At last, the clouds grew golden
and ruddy, and making a hasty toilet, I
walked quickly along the corridor, and
otp Nettle's dnor, listened
to tleirustle ofturning leaves, and went
back With a lighter heart, for I knew
that she was saf-, and at her studios.
We met at breakfast, and Nettie look
ed brighter than ever, only there was :l
little wildness about her eyes that I did
not quite like. And when Nero came in
for his morning greeting, she laughed ;:
low, vacant laugh that made the dog look
up with a wistful inquiry that seemed to
*What ails you, Nettie T'
Breakfast over, she took up her book.
:and swinging her hat over her ann went
to school. I thought it strange thati the
flush on her cheek never changed, and, as
I looked at her last work on an unfinish
ed picture, I saw on the dresser close b.%
a handkerchief powdered with dry car
mine. Then I new the cause, anid wept.
for I knew by my own bitter past how heI
young heart ached.
Weeks went by, but I never saw her
shed a tear. Harry Floyd was never
named. She gre v slighter, but her chcel
never paled and her eye was ever bright.
One cold, November evening, Fanny
Waymart was to give a grand ball. Net
tie and I were going, and I heard her
knick at my door before I was ready.
'Come in, dear! How early *yon are!'
'Why, Maggie! not ready yet t How
long it takes you! Maggie, dear, try to
think I am not your own Nettie; and tell
me what you think.'
I t-ok a snrvey of her crimson velvet
dress, and the "c;d larint'' looped ponlu

snowy rose; and then at t he shining black
hair, drawn in a simple knot behind, and

'Much obliged, Maggie. That's the last

mother, ill that brown satin; and no one
will guess that you are only six years
oldler than I amn. and yet lack one year of
being an old maid, for I think that etate
arrives with your twenty-fifth year.
'No inninuations, my dear,' and taking
a final survey in the tall mirror, we went
downi to the hall, where Cousin Jack and t
F'red. Holton were waiting for us.
'Nettie looks splendid! I declare I'd
like to marry her, if I wasn't going to
commlit matrimony with little Sue, whis
pered Jack, as I took his arm and de
scended to the spacious parlors of Colonel
Waymart, preceded by Fred Ilolton and
'O Nettie. how beautitul you are!' said
little Fannie, forgetlul of the time andl 1
occasion, as she triplped lightly toward
us, and kissed the arched lips of Nettie
I watched her eagerly, for I expected
some betrayal on her pait. But she mov
ed albount like a very queen.
Once, when I stoal near her, I saw
Harry Floyd propose a waltz; for whichl
compliment she thanked him haughtily,
and whirled away with Cousin Jack. I
laughed to see Harry hite his lips, and
ofler his arm with a low bow, and no
word, to AgnesStatnmore. He looked an
gry and muortitied; and I was glad e.f it.
for I hated hi-i, more than ever, now that
he sought a second time to flirt with my
How Nettic flirted that night! The
proudest and wealthiest hovered near
her, leaving little Sue to pout asld haugh
ty Agnes to frown at the scarcity of their
admirers. In thle hall I saw lHarry hend
over Agnes, as he wrapped her shawl
:tlouit her, and whisper somethliug ill her
ear that madte her blush, as I had never
seen her before, and imade the black eye
softer in its expression.
Three weeks later, there was a wed

'Not cnarriled-sointthing helter.' Andi
she glitded naway to the clhamber in tlhu
tower. That dai, and tie next. and the
next, there was a hurrying to and fro.
There were packages, aniI packs, andone
great box smuggled it , that was not open
ed nlitil the evening of the *hirdt day
'CGole, Maggie.' And Net tie's eyeseyes had
a st'range, triumphant look, as she led mle
to the rioo henclefolrth to le, "all her

And opening the great box.' she pointed
to :t c ri, with bhle-and-wlhite silk cover

she'll be here soon.'
'Who'll be here soon? What does all
this mean t What are yon going to dotf'
These and a host Umore of questions I
-sked, as I hurried as fast asI could con
sidering imy snrprise, to help the article
into the chamber, and looked around
,till more confounded.
There was a bed in the room, with
h.ngings of rose-coloied satin and white
Iace. Tapestry was new and brighter
-ha:t ever. There was paper of green
velvet onl the walls. before white, and the
hangings at the window lmatched thoadi
of the bed. T'here were conches and di
vans, easy-chairs and ottomnans; there
were pictures and shells, birds, flowers
tlid books, but above all, that cradle!
Nettie opened a closed door, and I saw
black dresses and skeletons too short'for
Nettie. She raised a trunklid,aud there,
in pieccful order, lay arrayed ntore baby
tecoinpanimeiite. I tulrned to I.sk Nettic
what it all meant, and saw her leading
.n a pretty little blone lady in black
with a baby in her arms.
*Mrs. Rosie Fay, Miss Evans, Maggie,
I gave a sigh of relief,; for now I com

away through the upper hall to a dark

:llxious, pale faces, while in the house

'My revenge! Is it not complete?

Yes, dear Maggie; silent as the grave!

the last time that wild laugh rang out
tlnd made me shudder as I listened to it
echoing along the halls.
