attributed to lie's beauty But the truth sweet disposition her artless manners her en- gaging gentleness and her superior keeping qualities won upon tlie city-bred and aristocratic Frederick Carleton There was a freshness a refinement about thing she said or did well aa delighted him She perplexed as Her little quaint sougs began to be called for more frequent opinion solicited Often ns he wondered how some homely expression might be received in polite society a beau- sentiment would suddenly drop like a pearl from her lips remarkable alike for originality and brilliancy If I should love her thought he when he reasoned himself 1 can educate her It would be worth trying She has a did mind It was useless to combat with Oiu passion that slowly on tne fashionable man of the world So at last he fell down at Nellie's feet to use a very figurative and confessed his love Nellie wasn't a bit course not She was a dear demure little ture however wondered if he would not be ashamed of

husband Fred's eye flashed fire Nellie looked up toward him he smiled a lover's smile and only drew her closer to his aide that brilliant gathering pitied poor Fred why he had martyred himself on the shrine of ignorant rusticity Once this beauty held sway over Fred's heart now whenever she glanced toward Nellie nn ill-concealed scorn lurked in her great brilliant eyes it was evident that she had determined to mortify her But the noble young husband joy he to love her the more as she clung so timidly to his arm His some face expressed the pride he truly felt he looked as if he would have swept back the haughty scorns with a motion of his hand had they ventured one wave too high on the shore of his pride He seemed o excuse every look every not in strict conformity to the of etiquette and Nellie's heart beat high tears carao more than once to her bright eyes Then she felt how lofty a heart she had one for nil her own The bride stood near her band when her self-constituted judge and speaking to some ane near Nellie said in a voice intended tola heard Do you suppose she knows Nellie's eye sparkled with fair brow flushed She turned to her was speaking to a friend some distance from
