And to think that out of all the gay , prettor, stylish young ladies in the little village, he.had selected this little pure tinted flower upon which to bestow his time and attention through the short, footing summer; and when he went away he had pressed his lips tenderly, reverently, to her white- hand , and whis pered: "I will write yon a letter in Sep tember, dear Lena!" -And now September had come, and he " had w ritten a long, long letter, full of love and tenderness, and asking her, at its close, to be his wife. It neemed so strange, so unnsnal to the poor, lonely little girl, that she could scarcely btrlieve it. It could not be pos sible that he loved her.' - Why, Ronald was wealthy and tal- ' ented, and ohl so noble and handsome a perfect "Prince in Fairy-land" he had saemcd to her, and ' the was only the daughter of a poor, hard-working me chanic I Surely it was a jest!

And only list night, down on the moonlit veranda, Elmer Crawford had whispered the same sweet story in her ear, and, though she did not love him, she had nlvwut whispered "yes;" for oh! she was so weary of being poor; so tired of this "shabby-genteel way of living! She did so long for a beautiful home and all the rare luxuries of life, and Elmer , was rich he could give her all these. So she had almost said "yes," when, suddenly; something seemed to whisper, . , "wait!" and the words had died on her lips, and she bad promised to give him his answer on Sunday. And, now, she was just sure that it was her "good angel" that had told her to wait, for here was this letter from Ronald, and she was so glad she had not said "yes" to Elmer. y2tarElmerf" she mnrmured. haunt- news sad saTluWS-eti ug'IiS-iajLiioJprj J wiuun ner Heart. -;iie will oe so disap pointed but.
