Tlie neiglibors all looked upon it as a very happy marriago. A year had passed sinoo Prank   Amory came  vritli bis delicate, Bolden-hnlrod wifa  to live in the little ,' chalet-like cottage iiist at the foot ol the ' lull. Adela Amory had been the daughter , of a New York clergyman, and some of her : recent associates hero in D-said of hor that she was quite too prim and puritanio to suit their taste at nil. But here they wore Indeed wrongf. Adola �'"was merely shy and reserved. ,   "Isomolimos thiulc,'' bor husband would ; Bay to hor. "that you are never just your / real self exccjit when you're with me." i   Then Adela's blue eyes would kindle, and perhaps she would remain meaningly silent, perhaps she would contly answer: "So loug as that is true, Frank, I've no reason for .' complaint." Still it nettled Frank a little to think that ' people should ima;,'inc hi.'; wife dull and un-conipauioiialile. Ho was i]ims(^lf the soul of vivacity and liveliness, a yonny, at)ik'tic fellow v.lih a Bhort, dark curling board, eyes that were black stars and a srallo that could somcliow warm your heart ooforoyou heard his voice. ; Ho wsp.i to say of himself that ho w.aa by . instinct a loafer, but by jirofession a 'Wall Et. stock broker, tJiough it was reported of him that his procendinss among purlieus of hazard implied aiiytliing rather than lazi-xicss. J   During the first few months after their ''tnarriago they had lived in New York, for though Frank's means were variable, they were still in no sense moagTC. Bxil at the end of a summer sojourn in D--Adela had begged hor husband to .stay on in their cottage throughout the winter. ,    She had had her secret reasons for putting I forward this plea, aud Frank more than [ vaguely realized them. Certain things had , happened diu-ing that town life of theirs, , which had bittenindoliblyinto poor Adela's ruemorj'. Thei'e had been evenings-there bad also been   a tew midnigiits-when Frank had oomo homo as ho would not have cared to see himself, could he have done so with a sober saza. To Adola these episodes had boon fraught witli an almost delirious borror. I   !n vain Frank had told her that what had ' liappenod to him happened to luuidreds of ' I other men. He might as well have tried to j convince her that if a thunderbolt had � Blunged through the roof ol their cosy little ; texington av. house l:ho catastrophe would bave been only a trifle. 1,. He dearly loved her, and at length made her a solemn vow t;lmthewouldnever touch wine again; for although days of perfi:ct ' Bell'-control would enter by protracted periods into his life, he would bo sure sooner , m latertocroBS that boundary which divides � continence from ortcess. But even this promise, after awhile, lost ;'its potency. Ono day, feeling r.ather jaded and ill, he took ntimulant, "just as a medicine," and that which had now become the nnusuahiess of the draught provoked sudden and strong craving for more. Adela Buffered nnguuih once again, mid Frank made no concealment of his bitter repentance. At the same time ho told bis wife that � compifcto abslinenoe would not, in his c:�s;', by any met'.ns prcvt possil-ile.  H-, liad ho.sis ' ct business Iri'-nds and club friends who Wore forever tt-raiitiiii: him: there Avere cer-tiiu times, in fact, when for liim to drink tiotliins would amount to an uncivil aoi; he had thought the whole matter rarefuHy ever, aud there wa? only one thing for hku to do. Tremulously Adola uskod him what lliat cue thing was. She had u thrilling dread lestho mightbe aboutto mention an asylum lor inebriaw^f; she remembered having beard that there are such melancholy and ' iriyst/irious places in e>;isttnco. But Frank had meant nothing of this � '-El oomy tort. � "I'm convinced, Adela," he now declared, ; ^Hhat I shall have to go on, i\-ith my glass or ' two of claret at dinner and my one or two 'nightcaps' afterw.ard, just as I did a few weeks ago. I've often heard, darling, that swearing-oif is the worst thing a man otm do, aud now 1 clearly under.stnnd why. So tomorrow or next day-as soon as I can get over this hateful, 'seedy' feeling-I'll recommence the old life." He did, and at first with signal success. But ono night at a DoUnonico dinner be wholly lost bis head, and thus it happened that Adela saw him still again in a state which it dealt hor acutost torture to look upon. She conceived the idea that if they should pass the winter at D-- Franli would be more filled with a duteous domestic sense on the ono hand, aud le.ss visited, on the other, by those nlluroments which were constantly calling to him while in town. Ilis friends would recollect that he "lived in tlio country," and so leave him out of tlieir bamiuets and other merrymakings. All through those long and rather lonely months Adela had no cause to regi'ot her now plan. A certain train brought Frn-uk up from Kew York every evening, aud except for an occasional whist party at the house of one or two of the nolghbor.s he would keep iu doors from thon until bedtime. Last Buinmor ho had not beliayod half so well. The spacious hotel roso only about a quarter of a mile distant, and while that was open and in full flare of suumier gayety ho was dangerously fond of loitering about its huge piazza, whence the journey to its barroom would mean but a few facile stops. More than onco Adola had went hot tears over what happened in the careless company of Frank's hotel friends. Kow, ivhen another spring came round, mellowing the garden-beds and putting little tuft.s of feathers' green on the willow-tree at the gate, Adola began to have new visitations of droad. Everything had gone on so well through the winter, 'What if Evimmer should chajige it all? (Hid nassod a great deal of his time in tho euperintendonco of a farm that covered about 10 acres. Ho was a large man, with an iron-gray shock of hair, a gaunt shape, on which clung clothes th.it seemed the very oxtrava-ganco of bad tailoring, aud a pair of eyes that you saw, when thev restlessly lit on you, to he a veiled yet fiery hazel. Mr. Eothsay had been represented to Frank as a m.in of tenibly violent temper, btit his neighbor soon became disinclined to admit the truth of any such charge, since whenever they mot bo found himself treated with a, good deal of rough, though distinct, courtesy. fjiank k.uskd hj3 knotted fist. :T1 ''!,'- I'tcr of Arty Oth-^r. l:'rrnnu':'.:r:
