Moiia's mother was to meet them on an exuursiuii train, and they hud thought it best not to awaken the ouriosity uf the depindenia of the house uutil after the dueision was made. Signor Paolita told his son of this, and that he was to give littio Lud^ Mona, as she was still culled, the ehoiue between his lovo und the love und duty she owed a mother, Eugene won to make known to her that her mother had "'umo to claim hur. Eugene and Mona were alone in a couch-oar, wlien, with great tendnrnes, the young man told her of her mother's return. "You are right, my littio Mona," cried Eugene. "My father said you wore to choose between us, and I love yuu mure than ever tliut you choose u mother's love in povurty, rather than wealth iu u buubund's home." "But I will iove you always, Eugene, even though I may not be your little wife. Ami now, take mo tu my mother, dearest." We will not depict the sadly sweet meeting batwenn Mona and hur long-Kist mother, which Signor Paolita and Eugene watched with sjrrowful admiration With a glad cry Lady Mona arose as if she would fly to meet her, when she was gently withheld by Eugene, who drew her upon the seat by his side, and whispered: 'Monu, I lovo you t   Will you leave me for tho mothur you cannot remem ber?-Think, I have loved you all my life little Ludy Mona I" "Oh, Eugene, I love you, but I must go to uiy mother-'whither she guest I go, where she diest will L die, bur people shall be my people, and her God my God'."
