The elder Mrs. Freeman now approached, and kind voice invited her to take C J., "1 ne lit us1 time, i; t'lou.-aii uiilry which very unhappy seek but a through relief from the of a disairreeahlc eompan- n. mbil.ion beckons him up the t, accent lo fame, or the acqni- his time a tall forest lifted its undulating line along the he rizon, and as they journeyed on, a cl -aring began to be visible, the long v aving curl of blue smoke ascending far up in- to the serene ether.

Flora looked with dismay at the heap of sufficient, as she thought, to dress a dozen dinners; but the old dame soon rolled them into order, and. a blazing (ire and the clean hearth spread an air of comfort over the dipartmcnt. Mrs. Freeman, with the dexterity of a back-woods cook, soonjproduced a supper that astonish- ed CTCII Flora by its variety and plen- ty; arid the kind and ailcctionate man- ner of the old lady to her sons, and their frank good-humor, would have concil- iated any heart but hers. She sat sul- lenly brooding over her fancied wrongs, until a real headache, which was-at first only an excuse for riot eating, drove her to bed. Freeman and his mother long conversing together, and Flo- ra saw tears bedewing the venerable check of the old toil-worn mother; but so far from softening her heart, she tried to strengthen herself iu her aver- sion to her mother-in-law. Thus Flora continued proud and cold towards her husband's relatives, >i.'i'bing for her own city home, and ri- diculing, all the sarcastic irony oi her natural disposition, every thing and every one, that accorded not with her own ideas of propriety. Freeman ili'fidijally grew rich and popular, be- come a of public business, a poli- tician, and spent but little time with his cross wife. The only friend in fact that sympathized ailments or bore with her fretfulriela was her despis- ed motheif-in-Jaw; andjw.hen ill health, the result of copfinenaent and sedentary habits, niade her at home, she was the only one who of- fered to console her or to alleviate her sufferings; for her husband had long since learbed "he should" of absence from her. Poor Flora, she hud the gem of life that gave it all its lustre from her, and no wonder every thing was dark to her. At length Flora became a mother, and through the sweet little girl that was her own image, she once more felt the stiiings toward the husband u horn she had so long treated with contemptuous aversion; but it came too late.
