Margerite the Pearl.
Frequentm of the tlicutre otiitl Hint
.Maiiieriti! D Arville was n rising st;tr of
tliesttige; that slut wns :m itnimsfiionwl,
fasciiiHliiig actress, as nlsu u clmslc, atui
nblii und ln'nuiiiul girl.
This beiiit; tlie ttcuup'vtl opinion, of
course tsliii had ninny itdmi rm s iintl ado
rers and disinterested friends, and there
fore it was verv rmtnrul llat each adorer
was more openly hi ilt ol liii adoration
limn he would have lieen had she re
mained the ch.-i l int n , obscure hissie of
ten years betore, who fang as she went
to Hie milking on a certain nicUiresiiue
farm among the New England hills.
Doubtless the imitt who loved her btst4
and most truly was Hie wealthy and 'aris
tocratic Albert Mayne. lie was thirty,
cultured and a thorough cosmopolitan in
feeling, opinion and haliil. If the ru
mors of a romance and it dead love back
in his early manhood hail the slightest
fact of foundation he had outlived both,
for his heart had never before heat rap
turously at a woman's smile. -
But Marjjerite D'Arville, wilh her tall
und statuesque figure, her Italian eyes
and scarlet inouth, her rich, colorlees,
perfect features and her hair waving in
jetty curls from her sweet forehead to
her stipple waist, had conquered every
idea of a bachelor life.
"I want you for my wife, Margerile,"
he said. "I want to take you from tiiis
life of excitement. You adorn it, but
you do-not love it nor were you crea
ted for it. You 'were made for the af
fection of a quiet home, and Ihat I can
give you. Will you accept it f"
But she "blushed and sighed and said
' "Do you reject me for Gwyn Walsing
uarn ?' ae asked, 30( seriously that she
could not be offended.' "
She' laid her hand upon his mm, and
he saw On one small finger a guided star
of precious gems topazes with a single
diamond flashing in the centre.
' "The seal of your betrothal to him !
Gracious God ! ia ft possible you are un
aware of that man's history fh
' "He is greatly respected,'; she answer
ed, ill a tone of emhuirasuieiit that lold
her lover that she was indeed ensnared.
And then Albert Mayne spoke slowly
and earnestly ; aud when he had finished
Maruerite's dark .eyes glistened with
righteous indignation, and a red heat '
Was upon her delicate cheeks.
"You are quite sure of. all this ?" she I
"I know it," he relumed, emphatical
ly ; "1 kuow also that you urn a good I
girl and a just uue. I profess to be your
friend, Hargerite. It 1 saw you going
wrong unconsciously, and nlmuld not
warn you, you would despise uie, would

"I would, I would t" she replied, and
the tears that Ml over the dower, uu her
anguished bi.s iiu were those of the wo
man anil not the actress. "He will be

The odor turned his soul sick. There

And yet it is so , hard--so hard! I had
money much more than we wanted
when I married him. He was p.xvr and
knew nothing about work of any kind,
and was aavays unfortunate in his ad
ventures. But we were very happy for
ten years. 1 tried to be a goof wife I
did, indeed. When I was ill I tried .to
seem well for his sake. When i was sad
I smiled and sang, that he too might not
grieve. When the crash came aud our
beautiful home was sold, 1 never let hi-m
know how much I missed it. 1 was
more sorrowful for him than for ni self
always. Even the plain rooms to which
we went were all Eden to me when he
was pleased and happy. But after we
buried our little one it was different. I
wanted, I needed more kindness and love
and forbearance. JJe was all I had then
my husband. ' I p:ned and grew pale ;
my patience was all worn away, and I
suppose I became fretful and unlovely.
And.one kiud word would have saved
na both. But we drifted npart-apart,

aud lett him rich, 'lie began his old
gay, careless life anew while 1 was left

you are his wife and have been

She has pleased and amuaed him -nothing
more. She has had many lovers and
could.be true to none. If he could hear
what you have said to me, he would
come to ou iu penitence and tears." '

liven the highest born arlstocrati ot
the Center would look awkward, if con
tinually pointed out as "Zoar folks"; and
then to hear and see the poinled-oul lo
sigh and sini!e"solemuly and iniiricaily,
ami remark what might lie readily trana
laied, "yes we understand ; no g'tod
can ramie out of Nazareth."
The good, Christian authoress of
"Shiloh" has depicted us somewhat as
wc are, bearing a slight Tesemblance to
humau beings, unualnral excrescences,
such as must naturally grow onlof tha
hard-named place. She has kindly
touched us up, here and there, with a
poetical pen, addicted occasioniiHy to
righteous "spasms .which act rather as
an aggravatbu.iu as much as they show
us wind might have been, had. we been
hied in a happier-souuding latmosphcre.
We are good children and enjoy ijeenly
every cut we get, knowing it is for gome
good ii by us uot understood. (
What "tree moral agent" ever had
any i'esirp tn go "over to Zoar f" Adverse
circumstances drive book and sewing ma
chine agents into our midst now and
then, and who can say which suffers
most, the visitors or the visited? Zoar
lias an unpromising sound, which out
siders like not to lake npon their lip.
(lull it "Shiloh," for good and all, and
see if we cannot come and go without
being considered "queer." Hspy are
lliey who know not what it is to be scan
ned, like a pre-Adamite-fossil 'dug from
out fie unheard-of parts of the earth
just because it happens to be mentioned
"they're froirf 2 iar." To the average
sensitive antil it is superior to pressure on
an exposed nerve. . '
