I think i i never saw such a Lovely creature in my Lile a though i know that we Are very Apt to be by our imaginations and that the Eye makes its own Beauty. But no one cupid have thought her anything but pretty standing by tho Garden Gato with her apron Lull of Vild fio Wera and her curls lifted by we tho wind dancing around her forehead Liko j a swarm of Golden bees. Quot my daughter Rose a said her father Oil and she put her Little White hand into mine s�4 As a child might have done just As simply and prettily so that it was very hard for me to shake it and lot it go instead of keep ing it. But there was somebody else to shake bands also and he Brand aug on the other Side of Beacon Olmstead put on his Long Lank fingers in Black silk gloves and performed the ceremony which he til ways went through with when any offered to Shako hands with him and which could n8t have been agreeable to anything except tho Village pump. A a sir. Bit Torworth said Deacon Olmstead waving his hand toward my companion with impressment a a or. Dovo a and he glanced at to. Who should say he is of 110 importance ? a a is Tea ready my dear a she replied that Tea was Roady and we went into the old fib honed House for to were going to Tako Tea with Deacon Olmstead and moreover to spend the night beneath Bis roof having Homo to in on Ehn Rob business Deacon Olmstead always Makin Point of enter Taraius two Young ministers on a Uch occasions. Tho Rev. Benjamin bitter Worth was much older than i and much More important in every Way. I had been lately called to a struggling Little Church exceedingly unfortunate in tho Way of difficulties and debts where the congregation Seldom paid any salary and always considered themselves ill used by the minister who in turn Wab. Somehow always injured by a parsonage called elder Bagshaw and somebody was always accused of misappropriating the Church funds. I never could discover w were. And tho Rev. Silas Snow having to Ken French leave in great disgust the congregation had called for an enterprising Young minister and i had been selected1 but for Benjamin bitter Worth a warm nest had been ready and every one had predicted him immense Success. A Alin was a country Church also but it was a Rich Ono and he bad friends and influence and everything which i Hud not. Deacon Olmstead showed that he Krizew this by every Glanco of his Eye and every tone of his voice. I but Rose Olmstead who her father be my a minister was mistress of the House but United no partiality. On tho contrary i think she liked me Best and though Beula Inin bitter Worth Long and Lank leaned fiores the table to talk to Hor in his oily tones Over and Over again somehow she us was returned to our old conversation As often As she could and mud me vory Happy with her . Sho knew tho Village which had been Iny boyhood s Home and had seen and spoken to a sister of mine dead years before so we found Many subjects in common. But even bad to had none had we spoken in different language unintelligible to each other i am euro that to Liao sat beside Rose olm Stead with her eyes looking into mine net. Boldly Only frankly would have been Worth the most eloquent words that Over fell from any other to piano slips. _ 1 it was a very Happy evening for after wards in the gleaming to went out upon the porch and she took me Down to boo try roses in the Garden and the honeysuckle Arbor Over the Little seat where she set Overy Vrna on at work and we stayed so Long Olmstead came Down after us i Ilia a a Road for wetting her feet with to. New and had Homo thing of great moment to Bay to to so that Benjamin bitter Worth offered his Arm to Rose to escort Hor through the Garden while i walked behind with her fatties ave went Back to tho porch after that and into tho parlor and soon Thore were family prayers and a genial Good night. But it being a Bright summer evening with All the windows open i sitting at Mino and looking it the Moon heard some one singing and knew that of All that household it could Only be Rose. It was a sad song and a Sweet one a Farewell a plaintive fall in it that was very touching and i Knelt Beai Fli my window and with my head upon my hand shed tears thinking what if i were that departing Lover and Roso Olmstead Sung that Farewell song to me. Do we never unconsciously reach tho future sometimes i think so. A As vre walked away to Tako the stage tho next morning Benjamin bitter Worth wore n queer smile upon his face Aud rubbed his Long Black gloves As though something plea of him mightily. At last to said to mo1 in his oily tones with a. Peculiar., affection of accent which it had pleased him to adopt a a brother Dovo i want to ask your opinion on an important this was Odd. My opinion had never been considered of any importance before but i bowed my head and waited. A a do you believe brother Dovo that Rosa Olmstead would make a Good Clergyman a wife a that was tho question. My Cheek flushed Scarlet. My heart boat loudly but i turned toward Benjamin and looked him full in the face. A. A a i know Sho would make a Good wife for any Man who might to fortunate enough to win Lier i answered. Quot a a love 1�?� Benjamin bitter Worth lovsted his eyebrows. A two wore not speaking of love i believe a he said a a but of we should put tho vanities of this carnal world out of the question when Joe look for wives brother a a i believe that Sho would be admirably fitted fur tho position a he said a a and i intend to act upon the belief. I have been resolved to marry for several years and Deacon Olms toads daughter appears to have excellent qualities i shall offer her my a a perhaps Sho will not i said it angrily. My voice was not under my control at that moment. Benjamin bit ter Wertli understood me i saw that in his cold Black Eye. But to answered without emotions her father would decide that i think. He is a Man of judgment ands in is an obedient Quot perhaps Bhe might choose for herself a i answered. Perhaps a said Benjamin a a but i think she has been brought up a a you May Havo rivals a i continued. A a it is not consistent with my cloth to be any Many a rival a a replied Benjamin. A a what i do brother Dove i do from a senso of w o said no More but went on toward tho stage to treading softly along the Road on the tips of his polished boots his thin lips sanctimonious by pressed together his Black gloved hands folded behind his Back while i warm and angry put a Strong restraint upon myself to walk beside him decorous by. After thib Day we met Only under Deacon Olmstead a roof but we met Thero often. I went thither to see Rose. I disguise of tho fact. To Benjamin bitter Worth sat aloof talking to Hor father As a general thing and then Only As it seemed to Provo his Power. In whatever he did in this Way he was aided and abetted by old Deacon Olmstead. I could Bee that plainly. But i saw Atso that Rose began to Liko me very much. In that i trusted for though a Stern Parent Deacon Olmstead to love his daughter. Summer faded and. The roses in my Darlings Garden died with it. At last i spoke to her saying something like this a i love you Rose i think i Lovo you More than Man Ever loved woman. Can you Lovo me Well enough to be my wife a and the Golden curls sunk Low upon my shoulder and i gathered my Darling up against my Hoart. We were in tho Garden then beside a great Elm older than the old House itself and sheltered by it we stood together i supporting Hor Sho leaning on my breast and we Baw nothing save each others voices and i took tho Little hand in mine and slipped a tiny ring upon tho taper Finger one that had been nay Mother a betrothal ring and which upon Hor death bed she had Given me bidding me to give it to the girl i loved upon the Day she promised to marry me. And so the Sun went Down and the Elm Trees Shadow Lay Long and dark across the path and mingled with it fell another Shadow that of Rose Olmstead a father. He came upon us suddenly and found us standing together. Rose would have shrunk from me but i would not let her go. A a she has promised to be my wife sir i said. A a give us your Blessing. It is All to need to make us Happy. You will give her to to trill you not ? x Lovo Lor vory . Tho deacons face was like a Stone. I could not read its import Bat he Drew hi3 daughter toward him and stood Between us. A you have done wrong or. Doye a he said a a very wrong. Sho is Young und Lias but Little judgment i will speak to her alone. I should have spoken to her before but i thought one of your profession could be trusted. Good evening. Come and to passed into tho House taking her with him and As i left the Garden i saw Benjamin bitter Worth with his stately Steps and folded hands making his Way along tho Road. Quot the next Day a boy came to my study Frith a note. It was from Deacon Olmstead and summoned me to his dwelling. I went at once and in the parlor found Rose Palo As a Lilly sitting beside Hor father. She looked at me As i came in for one moment and then to ironed her Faeo aside and hid it with her Hanily. Her father spoke to her. A a Sfero you older or. Dove i might be harsher but i regard you both As very inno sent and vory inexperienced. Had i known this baby Pluy of courtship was going on should have been stopped before. It is not too late now. Rose sees her Folly. She has resolved to obey to. Sure trifle of yours a ring i believe she will return to you and then you will part. she left her seat As lid turned toward Hor and crossing the room calmly and sadly Laid the Little betrothal ring on my hand. A Good Bye a she said a a i must obey papa. It Isyall Over Between us. Good Bye william.�?�. But i could not be so Calm. I caught her hand and turned toward the Stern old Man with his Iron shoe. A a do you remember your own youth a i cried. Do you know what you Aro and he answered a a my duty i Hope. I shall Endeavor to secure the Best interests of my daughter. You la cease to urge tho Point when you hear that Sho is to marry the Rev. Or. Benjamin bitter Worth a week from next a marry him 1�?� i cried. A Rose have you consented to this Are you false to to ? Pilayo you a he cheeked me with a solemn Wato of his hand. A a you Havo done your Best to fill my daughters head with Folly who Baid you have not succeeded. Si10 has Choson Tor her protector Ono of mature judgement and i am glad of it.�?�. A a i cried a a is this True ? Havo you of your own will chosen him a a a my father has commanded me a was tho answer a and i must i turned from Hor and fled from the room and the House mad and Blind with grief and indignation. A a she is not what i thought Hor a i said. A a Sho has been won by Gold. My poverty has lost her to ,. ,. Yot i loved her still and the world seemed dark and desolate. I had wild thoughts of wandering away and hiding myself from the Eye of mortal Man and was thankful that excitement made More Day so ill that on the sunday of tho wedding i had ample Oxx ase for deserting my pulpit and having procured a substitute spending tho Day in my own room. This at least was my intention but As the hours crept on an in Cuenco which i found it impossible to resist urged me to leave tho House and go across tho Fields and through tho Yil Lago to the Church were Rose was to be married and witness the ceremony. I think i was feverish almost delirious. Surely a Wise judgment would Havo led me to any other spot in the universe. But i wont. It was a Winter Day and the Snow Lay thickly on tho country path i trod. It whitened the roofs and Clung to tho tall spire from which tho Bell rang Clear and Sharp upon the frosty air. I listened to. a a surely a i said a a some awkward hand is at the rope. It is More Liko the peal tolled for the dead than that rung for a merry but this might have been my fancy for everything looked dark to me that Day. I know this was so for As i sat in a sheltered spot on tho gallery looking Down those who came in seemed to Wear sad countenances and to Exchange Mournful whispers yet still the thought that it was More like a funeral than a wedding would creep across my mind. A a and so it is a i thought a a the funeral of my brightest Hopes of every Mournful dream which i have then Thero was a whisper a stir. The Bride was coming. I should see her again. Could i Hoar it i strained my eyes. Tiow slowly they Eames How gravely Heads were Bent and they Woro dressed in Black every one of them. Was i going mad ? i saw old Denton Olmstead i saw Benjamin bit Torworth. And what was this 0, merciful heaven 1 the Bride was coming not in bridal Wreath and veil blushing and Beautiful but cold Whito As Marble lying beneath that Sable pall motionless sightless dead to words of earthly Loyo forever More Rose Olmstead was dead. They who lifted me from the floor where i had fallen told to that Sho had died tho night before that Sho Ltd been the last few Days and that on that night she had risen and Knelt Down to Pray it was believed for they found her kneeling with her face upon her hands quite dead. A a Hor heart is Brokon a the doctors said and i believed them. I was vory ill after this so ill that they thought i must die. But death choose those who were happier and left me and i dwell now in tho some old place where i can sit beside my Darlings grave in the Twilight of the Sabbath eve an old Man weary with the weight of years. Yet i shall Boyoung again sometimes Young and Happy in heaven with my lost Ono. A of the Way words Are often divided when Sot to music sometimes produces a rather ludicrous effect.

A Gilt is Safe to learn even from our enemies but Seldom Safe to instruct our friends Why i ran away. Donald lean and myself wore Good friends at fourteen years of nge and we both regarded with Little Moro than Friendship pretty Helen Graham our oldest girl at we romped and danced together and this lasted for such a length of time that it is with feelings of a Borild Orcut that i look Back upon tho mystery of tho two lovers continuing friends. But tho time was to 001110 when jealousy lit tho spark in my bosom and blow it into a consuming Ulanio. Well do i remember Toiv and when tho Green eyed monster porn Itrato this incendiary does. It was on 11 cold october evening when in Olin Donald and myself were returning with our parents form a neighbouring Hamlet. As to approached a Ford whore the water ran somewhat higher than ankle deep we prepared to carry Helen across As to were accustomed to with hands into of Raven a a chair fashion a and thus to carried our pretty passenger Over tho Brook. Just As to Wero in the Middle of the water we Ipoh was cold enough to live Frozen anything Liko feeling out of boys less Hardy than ourselves a faint Pang of jealousy nipped my heart. Why it was i know not for to had carried in Olin across to Brook Ere now without emotion but this evening i thought or fancied that Helen Donald in undue preference by casting her Arm around his Neek while Sho steadied herself on my Side by holding the cuff of my jacket. No flame can Burn so Quick or with so Little fuel As jealousy. Before to had reached tho opposite Bank i had wished Donald at the Bottom of the sea. Being naturally impetuous i burst out with a a you need a Haud Sao gingerly Helen As if be feared a fax. I can carry be lighter than Donald can carry 0�?T surprised at tho vehome co of my tone our que left Intel nosed with an admission that to Wero both Strong and that Sho had no idea of sparing my Power. But Donald a fire was kindled Anil to utterly denied that i was at ail qualified to compete with him in feats of physical courage. On such topics boys Are generally Emulous and by the Timo we reached the opposite Bank it was settled that tho Point should to determined by our singly bearing Helen across the Ford in our arms. Helen was to determine who carried her most easily and i settled with myself privately in Advance that the Ono who obtained the preference would really to the person who 6tood hightest in her affections. Ti10 Refl action stimulated Meto exert Ovorn Effort and i verily Beli ovo to this Day that i could Havo carried Donald and Leleu on either Arm like feathers. But i must not anticipate. We suffered the rest of tho party to pass quietly along and then returned to Lolen. With the utmost Caro i carried Hor like an infant to tho Middle of the water. Jealousy Lead inspired a warmer love and it was with be rings unknown before that i embraced Hor Beautiful form and Felt the pressure of her Cheek against Mino. All went swimmingly or rather Wardingly for a minute but alas in tho vory deepest part of the Ford i trod on a treacherous bit of Wood which rested i suppose on a smooth Stone. Over i rolled bearing Helen with to nor did to Rise till fairly soaked from head to foot. I need not describe the taunts of Donald or the accusing Silenok of Lolen. Both believed that i had fallen from More weakness a and my rival demonstrated his Superior ability bearing her in his arms a Long distance on our homeward path. As to approached her Homo Helen fooling dry and better Humoured attempted to reconcile to. But i preserved a my Ody Sireneo i was mortified beyond redress. That night i packed up a few things and ran away. My Boyish mind sensitive and irritated exaggerated the negation had received and prompted me to hotter results than generally attend such irregularities. I West to Edinburg where i found an Uncle a kind hearted childless Man who gladly gave to a place in jigs House and employed me in his business. Wealth flowed in upon him. I became his partners went abroad resided four years on tho continent and finally returned to Scotland Rich educated and in Short everything but married. One evening while at a Hall in Glagov my attention was taken by n lady of a pretending appearance but whose remarkable Beauty and High toned expression indicated a mind of extraordinary Power. I was introduced but scottish names had Long been unfamiliar to my ear and i could not catch hrs. It was Lelon something and there was something in tho face too that seemed familiar something suggestive of pleasure and pain. A we became Well acquainted that evening. I Learned without difficulty her Sho was from tho country had been Well educated Hor parents had Dost their property. And she was now. Noting As governors in a family of tho City. I was fascinated with her conversation and was continually reminded by her Grace and refinement of manner that Sho was capable of moving with distinguished Success in a far higher sphere than that which Fortune had allotted her. I was naturally not talkative nor prone to Confidence hut Thero was that in this Young lady which inspired Bolh and i conversed with Hor As i had never Ouno Craod with any lady. Her questions about tho various countries with which 1 was familiar indicated a remarkable knowledge of literature and Sho possessed a Largo Storo of useful information we progressed in intimacy and rte oaf conversation turned upon the bonuses which induced so Many to leave their Nativo land i laughingly remarked that i owned my on travels to falling with a pretty girl while crossing a Ford. I had hardly spoken those words Ore the blood mounted to her face und was succeeded by a remarkable paleness. I attributed it to tho heat of tho room laughed and at her request proceeded to relate my Ford tid Venturo with Helen Graham painting in glowing colors tho Ani ability of my Early Lovo. Her Mirtoli during tho recital became Lrroy possible. At tho conclusion she remarked a a or. A Roborts a bit possible that you have forgotten me a i gated an instant remembered and was dumbfounded. The lady with whom f had thus become acquainted was holon Graham herself. A i hate and so do you Reader to needlessly prolong a Story. To wore soon a hurried arid Helen and i made our bridal tour to the old Plano. As to approached it in our Carriage i greeted a Stout fellow working in a Field who seemed to to a Bottor sort labourer or perhaps a Small Farmer by inquiring some particulars relating to the neighbourhood. To in sword enough and i was about to give him a sixpence Whon Lelon stayed my hand and cried out in the old Tylo. A a Iley Donald Man Dinna to Kon your old freon a the Man looked up in astonishment. It was Donald lean. His amazement at our appearance was heightened by its Stylo and it was with the greatest difficulty that to could induce him to enter our on Riago and answer our numerous inquiries As to our friends. A it different men Start in in different ways. I Beli ovo that mine now Evor is the Only instance on record of a gentleman who owns wealth and happiness to rolling Over with a pretty girl in a Stream of in my own trap. Dora and i had been silent full fifteen minutes an unusual occurrence for us whoa she suddenly broke out in Ono of her gayest sweetest peals of laughter. Tho cars Wero going at tho rate of forty Milos an hour but Dora a laugh rang out Abov o All their Oiso and conclusion. A what is it Dora you Witch you a i said half piqued that Sho had not at first told 1110 what pleased her and laughed afterwards. A nothing Noll Only i wits just thinking of something funny. Do you see that gentleman just in front of us with the Beautiful Black whiskers and dreamy Brown eyes a a Well he a Boon watching you a child that Book for the last half hour looking As if he should Lovo to Tako a bite of tho Rod roses of year Cheeks.

I was just thinking of Sozio of tho stories i Havo read about Young ladies mistaking handsome Young Fellows for their Brothers ete., and thought what fun it would to if you could Only manage to mistake that gentleman for your brother i was ready for fun in a moment.

A you Daren to you a done to j Daro too though ? wait and and so i dropped Back into the Cushion in silence till tho train stopped at our station. Dora gave to a wicked look and whispered that she know my courage would fail me for tho gentleman was really getting off. I was not to to triumphed Over though and so As we stepped out on the platform,1 Sadr the literary gentleman standing amidst the crowd and wit i a Little bound throw myself into his arms Aud kissed him full in the month haste ideally saying a Fred my dear brother How do you do a i caught a glimpse of Dora she was in danger of going into convulsions. I expect cd to hear the stranger say confusedly that there was Somo mistake but to my Surprise he gave to n Hearty Embran Ccu kissed to two or three times said that lie was Wolly that i had grown a great Deal and inquired for my Little Fiield Dora who All this time was exciting tho sympathies of the crowd As they supposed she was Insano judging from her frantic laughter. A Fathor and Mother Are expecting you Nellie and Are so impatient they can scarcely Waif to see you. I was afraid you would not know me but i am really glad that my image has been treasured up so carefully in my Sisters a i was bewildered beyond measure. It really was Fred then and i had not known him. I Felt slightly ridiculous and while introducing Dora to my brother whispered to Hor to keep quiet in reference to my intended trick. I was too much confused to think of inquiring How is Camo Tobe in the cars without seeing me so to ail wont to tho Carriego we Ipoh was waiting for us and rapidly drove Home. _ i had never known Fred to to so affectionate. To held my hand at unnecessary intervals but to Tell the truth i had never loved him half so Well before never thought him half so handsome. _ to reached the Gato.
