I was standing on Buthergleu bridge, looking down into tile Clyde, and thinking of unhappy Mary Stuart, who, on that very spot, turned in her saddle and fired upon her rebellious, pursuing sub jects My mind was full of the dramatic situation, and its romantic antecedents, when I heard a voice passing me say : *“ Wed, wed. lad ! lf ye think money the one thing needful, tak yer ain gate. Bessie is a bonnie lassie She'll easy find them as think so to ” I did not need to turn my head ; I knew the speaker well enough, and though the words of his companion did not reach me, I knew. too, their quick incisive tone*. Here was old David Gillespie, who had saved a little money ] bv hard work and hard economy, urg-• ing his only child to marry the penniless daughter of an old friend. And Dr James Gillespie, aged twenty six. arguing in favor of Jean Cat heart** “house and siller’ versus Bessie Lang’s I pretty face. I Two years ago he had found it very pleasant to love Be.--ie Lang ; to-d iv he could not help comparing her homely drest* with Jenny’s rich attire ; and her humble occupation with the heiresses’ position, as mistress!’ an elegant home and £30,000. James needed money Ile had tastes ; in wines, dress, and < \ t v other luxury, j far beyond Iii* nn ans. aud cared iii re ; to be thought a fine gentleman and an I elegant fellow, than a clever physio an | and an honest man — facts of which ; Jean Cathcart was ignorant I might Ii ave sp ken t< Juan ab* ut these matters.for i f-ar months previously we hid been S ll od rn aft s ; 1 nt I** r advent in o S'*ciefy ba i lift: i !, r be v- lid my ordinary sympathies Yet when spring came and I knew she woald re turn to her pretty country h one, I went to bid b* r g***>.i-b\ Dr 111;; 'pie \\ - 'caving the drawing room as I entered it ; at.

But old habits and old obligations were too strong for him. Ile was oppressed with debts of which Jean knew nothing, and which lie could only hope *o meet by continuing his operations on the turf. But poverty has its peculiar atmosphere Men in some occult but certain way divined that J. tm cs Gillespie was “ hard up.’’ and the instinct of humanity is lo prey upon this condition Things rapidly became worse, and al tbou'_ii Jean had been expecting this. it gave her a sickening shock when. for the fir'? time, she wanted money to buy clothing and could not get it— wanted to pay bills and lier pnr.se was empty So accustomed had she been for years to go to a certain drawer in her cabinet I<jr cash, that she still kepf going, unable to peranad* herself that it contd possibly be empty. In these gradually darkening days -he had, however, fw > great comforts James began to be thoroughly weary of what he had hitherto called life’—bugan to see through th-; hollowness of friendships founded on interest, and to have dark, sorrowful hoars of regret for his wetted veer* and abilities ; and James lath* r, who had withdrawn in silent pride and indignation fr*>^ their extravagant home, now begari to conie frequently to Cathcart, to hee Jean and lits I i 11 Ie granddaughter True, he tiuo d these visits so as t-. avid I James, but it was quite plain that James* wife had Completely* w ti his heart “She’s* wonderful ItrGe woman. yon. .. ii, mu lh woald say. with a It was about this time that the old d >ctor said; *• James, when is your wife coming to you ?

One night, just be for * the parlors were lit, T went up to her room. She was dressed for dinner, and was sitting before the low grate, half-stooping to wards the blaze at which she warmed her jeweled hands There was such a weary, pathatic look on her face that I involuntarily said : “ Jean are you sick ? ” She sighed heavily, and answered slowly, dropping the words one by one: “No, love, I am only tired I wonder how long this is to last ? ’* “ But why not give it up, and go bauk to Cathcart ? Live aa you like to live.” “ I am not living for myself.

I did not understand it then, but towards Christmas Jean had a little daughter, and then T could read what before was dirk. Evidently with the dawn of motherhood, bad come a perception of duties that might conflict with her other plans and turn her sacrifice into a ruin. The little Grace had claims now, as well as James, and it was pitiful to watch the struggles and efforts of tho mother to meet both.

Out of this conversation much grew. Jean was a practice little body; she made clear notes of every debt owing, and then gave orders to her lawyer to put Cathcart immediately in the market “ I wonder,” said James, when he saw the grim sum total—“ I wonder if Cathcart will pay it.” “ Not more, James, therefore the sooner you begin work the butter. Have you enough to take yon to Edinburgh?” *• I have nearly a sovereign.” ‘ You must make it do W e will ask no one—not even father—to help us We will find ground for our feet arid stand uppn it ” So next evening James Gillespie was sitting in Dr. Kiunairu’s pallor,talking to him. “ Have’you got rid o’thesiller.man?” “ Yes, Doctor ” “ Every bawbee ? ” “ I have about five shillings.” *• Well you may keep that to buy your aitmeal wi’ for a week. If you come as mv assistant you I! begin at twenty shillings a week—paid when you’ve earned them—-and I ii raise the wages as I see you come to it.” To be Dr. Kinnaird’s assistant at any price was hope enough For any young surgeon, although the office was one of constant wear upon the physique and feelings. Very soon the dormant passion of the born surgeon became the master passion. In two months James Gillespie would have followed John Kinnaird for love I brough all the hospitals of Europe. 1 a sh .*. tv wind ’n it tobeek to eit!] an * ffieeThere b* ing n*> othr-'uit of thirty or finll naif I I A Ilk ) I to rnv> elf.
