lost and scattered sons May love Thee from afar When oil myriad harps shaT meet In choral and prayer Shall Zion's old so sweet Atone bo wanting Yet place mr in thy lowest seat Though there The

Devonshire where between his books and the sea shore along which he loved to ramble his time passed anything but heavily Were he had resided about a month when the little community received an tion in a young lady and her mother who joined it for the of a residence St Aubyn stepped back in when one morning from the cabin n which he lodged he beheld two females in the attire and with the air of one leaning upon the arm of the other whence he had just emerged He bowed ever and passed on jHe had scarcely more than glanced at the strangers but transient as was his survey of them he saw that one of them was an younger How touching is the language which indisposition over ex- claimed St to himself Health would improve tihe loveliness of that face but he interest which now in- vests it would vanish No he continued but late hours and ded rooms have sent her 1 prophesy she comes to make some stay Sidmouth would be change of scene not change of He was right St Aubyn returned from his ramble earlier than was his custom His thoughts that day were in hamlet and upon the shore He approached his lodging with something like the emotions of expectation and suspense He looked at hu landlady on entering as if he expected her to communicate something ana was dis- appointed when she merely returned the ordinary response to his salutation He entered his apartment dispirited and threw himself in a chair near the window the sash of which as if he wanted air For the first time he felt the oppression of They have not come to said he to himself and absolutely with a sigh no In an assembly a lovely graceful and delicate woman be- held for the first time would ex- acted from him only the ordinary ute which beauty shares with beauty but in a remote little fishing hamlet inhabited by beings

white that it seemed to have i modelled for no other office than to pillow such a burden A thrill ran through St Aubyn quickening him in- to wakeful life How the hand What passion apd sentiment are in are the the things that the hand which St sat watching discoursed to him as it changed its wit i the palm now with the hack kissing its owner's extending one finger upon the marbly ample en- wreathing

bead the full elastic arms swelling and ing as they contracted St Aubyn gazed on Hitherto the cheek alone of the fair in- valid had been presented to him but now her head turned her eyes met his and rose and diew Only glimpses of her did St Aubyn catch again that they were A aand an elbow of her shoulder once or twice her finger flitting backwards and for- warls as she passed up and down the apartment Dusk fell still she ed at her post Was it a guitar that he It was but awakened as the first tones of Eolian harp which you hold your to hear j Her hand was on the strings one chord at length she struck full another another Then all silence for a time St Aubyn s ill at the in vain The music awoke again as soft as before and a voice soft as the music but far sweeter along with it She was singing he could hear nothing but the strain anp yet he heard enough to tell him that a theme of derness though sung by er seemed to help tha n mar the The stars shone out the moon in fyer first

ear withdrawn froni the open window It was broad day before her spell over the excited spirits of St Aubyn nor was it Woken till high noon He arose j emerged from his chamber anc took ah anxious survey of the habitation opposite The room empty He par took of a slight repast apd sal ying out made his way to the He had not fair when turning a point he beheld he elder female about a hundred

proceeding or descending that froim the same cause she had several feet and that self durst not attempt to go to her sistance St Aubyn heard he bounded up the steep As he the fair one modesty half overcame she made a plight effort to repair if je disorder into which her dress had thrown by the Aubyn assisted to com- plete what she had but he her raised hdr and propping her fair form with his

passion was re- turned Her health had improved idly the autumn was far advanced and the evenings and nights were growing chill The mother and daughter ed of returning to a day was ed for their departure and on the eve of that day St Aubyn threw himself at the feet of the lovely girl and ed her to bless him with her Yet though she did not deny that he had interested her eyes and cheek
