It was Early in the season for their commencement hut the Prospect of another partner in the game had roused All or. Brandon s enthusiasm. Before the Bell rang Margaret had drawn Forward the old fashioned mahogany whist Jib to which opened on to a fifth leg put the Eanis in place near her fathers seat and ordered the dish of walnuts cracked with which her father s whist evenings invariably closed. Margaret smother who Seldom interested herself in this game contrary to her usual custom came into the room this evening and took her seat close to the table. Something new evidently interested her. Perhaps it was her husbands plan of leaving Holm Bce where she had never been quite satisfied to live. Only love for Fier husband had in the least reconciled her to the place a place with whose society she Seldom mingled. She had not one of those makeshift characters that. If they can not have their desire will take something less and learn to be satisfied. Quite the contrary she could do without but she could not accept a modification. This made her in the eyes of the neighbors a Peculiar person. The was not understood by them therefore they disliked her. She held herself aloof from them therefore knowing so Little of her they made it their business to talk a great Deal against her. Of this her husband knew nothing and for it mrs. Brandon cared nothing. The Advent of this stranger gave her a Little pleasurable excitement. He came from the great world once so familiar to her hut now so Distant. To see him to hear him was like the breath of some remembered air. She did not come Down to talk during the game for she Well understood its character to be synonymous with its name whist while the game lasted. The stranger pleased her at first sight his manner when presented to her was easy but deferential very different from tie nonchalant air of Many of the present generation to who when introduced to an older person toss their head with an air of condescension which seems to say quot i Honor you by whatever traits of character the Young stranger might show upon a More protracted acquaintance he was at present neither presuming nor vain. His air of deference continued and lie occasionally glanced at mrs. Brandon in an appealing was which still further tended to Render him pleasing in her eyes. Regard for his wife a tastes caused or. Brandon to shorten the delightful games he was playing and after three rounds he Rose from the table Drew a semicircle of chairs before the open fire and invited his wife and daughter or. Harris and or. Penrose to seats therein. As for himself he took the Center chair. Quot you like the Corner wife and i know or. Penrose has similar tastes. keep the Young people one at each a a filial i bring the nuts papa a whispered Margaret. Quot not just yet or. Harris has promised mean hour on darwin.�?�.

Brandon. Quot i have your permission Madam a quot with a thousand thanks we need a Little enlivening i assure you. Books do very Well us promoters of thought hut seed sowed by them is much like Garden growth very slow. I liken conversation to the foreign Hotsic that compels rapid thus pressed the Young Man began slowly to speak. He seemed at first quite inclined to keen the beaten track but a few questions from the members of the Little Circle soon threw him into self forgetfulness and for nearly an hour he talked brilliantly and with an acumen that justified mrs. Brandon a idea of the results of conversation then the walnuts were brought on and talk ran in its usual Strain the remainder of Tho evening. Quot i wish Maria had been Here a exclaimed Margaret after the company had separated. A How much longer is or. Harris to be in town father Maria must certainly meet quot of thought you to Tymes head seen a ooh that was nothing amere Street Ren Conter. But they two would certainly suit i have never seen the Young Man before that i thought Good enough to talk with her. Ilow Long did you say a quot of 1 done to know a week More or less that Maria shall be Here. Quot Pooh Pooh what scrape Are you getting your old futher into now a wife How is this a but mrs. Brandon Only smiled. 8he was quite used to such passages Between father and daughter. This family was one that very Well understood itself. Constant explanations were not needed within the charmed Walls of that Home each member of which thoroughly believed in every other member. Affairs seemed inclined to arrange themselves for the very next morning came a Call from or. Harris. Quot Pardon me a he said quot but i wish to make some inquires in regard to Denham Woods and your father has referred me to you As Well acquainted with their peculiarities. Can you Tell me about the Chain of lakes i shall visit them myself in a few Days but first i desire to make a few quot i have a Friend a member of my botanical class who knows ten fold More in regard to them than i do. I will Call Mamma Toen certain you while i run Over for he was about to protest but before lie could open his Mouth she was gone. A Bright Frank laugh broke Over his face. Quot a transparent child a he exclaimed. When Margaret returned she found her Mother seated in an Arm chair her Whin morning shawl fallen one Side and or. Harris on a Stool at her feet entertaining her with an account of the races he had attended a few weeks before. Never had Margaret seen her Mother so animated. Usually very Placid her life passed along wit i but few Ripples. Now her Cheeks were flushed her eyes were Bright and she looked ten years younger than iii the morning so surely does happiness contain the secret of eternal youth. When she Rose to leave the room he hastened to open the door for her bowing with All the deference due a Princess. Quot All miss Margaret you Are fortunate that you have a Mother i never knew mine. Is your woodsy Friend coming a How Many sides had this Man How different the tone from that with which lie addressed her Mother a mocking laughter Margaret was quite sure dwelt in the words quot woodsy Friend a and she turned to him half expecting to see a laugh upon his lips hut he was As sedate As when she first met him and again she was struck by his resemblance to the Green Pond stranger. A shall i Tell him a thought Margaret but something held her Hack. Quot Wlms right have i he might take it amiss still i should not care were it not for his strange puzzling similarity in a Maria a Entrance broke this train of thought. In her heart Margaret had already seen them wedded and now she Felt watch fully curious As to the first conversation. This Young girl was pure and simple in All her ideas but was somewhat imbued with the prevailing thought of hol Busbee society that marriage was the Fate of All Young women. It was a subject not talked upon Between these two girl friends. Margaret had never heard Maria mention marriage and was herself careful not to speak upon this topic before Maria smother who had been left a widow through a very painful Accident. In the course of that mornings conversation Margaret for the first time Learned that the Denham Woods from the Village to the third Lake had grown into a Forest within the last Twenty five years and that formerly an elegant mansion stood upon one Shore of Green Pond at that time called Lake from which upon one Side extended a grand Park filled with Deer while beyond the Lake stood the primeval Forest As now. Every Day for a month or. Harris found occasion to Call at or. Brandon a. His business seemed to drag along and yet he did not hasten it. He was like a Drifting Pebble resting until some new and stronger Force should move him. So thought Maria. Margaret Felt sure she knew the secret of Liis waiting and fell to weaving a Long Romance ending in a far off future year. Her Mother grew brighter every Day with the Prospect of life in a new and larger town. It seemed to Margaret that her Mother loved or. Harris because she associated him with the change she never refused to see him never showed signs of weariness at his stay. Margaret a voice1 was heard oftener than before in song about the House. Her quot tra la Law had a new song of was to surmise quot where have you been a was Margaret a first salutation one morning As her usual visitor approached. She said this half eagerly then quickly checked herself. Quot How rude i Ami she thought. The Young Man merely smiled. Quot will you have it a he said extending a Small pot in which was growing a luxuriant specimen of the walking Fern. She took it without reply and Bent her head for a moment Over it. Quot do you catch its perfume a he asked. Site made no answer for a moment then she said quot Maria ought to have quot i took her one an hour quot of did you a she exclaimed joyously. Quot thei i shall keep this with thanks a quot my Mother loved it a he simply said. Margaret opened her eyes widely then suffered the lids to Droop slowly Over them a pretty trick she retained from childhood quot making baby eyes a her father culled it. Quot your Mother a she said slowly and p Nelv. Quot i have Only her memory a he said. Quot do it of wonder Why i adore your Sweet Mother aii she permits me to love her a quot permits a said Margaret. Quot is not love free a quot not at All. It is not free to come or free to go. Of All mortal or immortal things it is the least quot if Maria were Only Here a murmured Margaret. Maria would know what to say How to answer but she did not. All this while she was playing with the Fern passing her Small fingers Over it in a caressing manner. Quot does this grow so common that you do not ask me where i obtained it a he said. Quot i know the Green quot so you have been there a a will you go again i have bought this kit of the Forest and to Morrow workmen Gin a Road through quot will not that destroy it a quot of no i shall preserve All the wild features but i must have readier Access. The land belonged once to my ancestors. There is a queer Cave upon it. And the remains of a mine whose Workings Nave been destroyed. 1 have found a Traca i have Long sought and for it i must thank Holm Bce quot thank a fire quot Isa ouf us a slav Vax in dual. Alter 1 tel Law had a new song of Gayety. The world changing to this family but they failed a Misc the cause. Quot that is nothing. I thank any Fortu Iton Accident that brings my goal. Do you won der at events. I do not their March is no Surprise. A year since a thing is impossible a year to come it has Long been quot All this is Fine but i do not comprehend it a sighed Margaret but so Low lie did not hear. Quot Maria would enjoy this taking up the pot she led the Way gayly to her mothers room. Quot see Mother what i have brought you a her mothers Eye shot past the Fern and rested with a smile upon the Young Man who Lead brought it. Quot now there Are two of them a said mar Garet. Quot two two what a said her Mother half unconsciously. Quot two or. they did not know what she meant hut the fancy pleased her and she repeated it to herself. Quot the old and the she again looked at her Fern but could read no More of its secrets. "1 Srull go to the Woods again a she thought. Quot who would have believed botany to he so deep a science it holds All mysteries. Perhaps that is Why Maria is so sagacious a always Maria leaving her Mother in conversation with the Fern giver she took her hat and wandered Down the Garden to look at her Beds of in fevers. Pulling a Weed Here fastening a stake there she had forgotten he was in the House a forgotten his very existence so Little had it to do with her thought and life when she heard an approaching step and turned to see him coming Down the walk. Quot a you wish to Sec what care i give my beauties a said she. He did not reply did not seem to hear but coming close to her said quot Margaret 1 love you will you be my wife a the opened her eyes wide and let the lids fall Over them in the pretty Way aired a described. Quot Why do you love me a she at last murmured which the Young Man took As an admission that she returned his love and stooped to kiss her. Quot no no a she said skilfully evading the Caress. Quot you have not answered quot a i know not but it gives me "1 do not think i love you a she said. Quot what is love a quot you ask then you do not love. It is something that fills the whole being it shines on All of this world All of the next. It makes life Worth living a without it there is no life a quot i love my Mother a whispered Margaret quot there Are Many loves. A Margaret Sweet Lei me teach you the the Shook her head gently. Quot a Well dear 1 love you All too much to wish to Force your heart. If you can not love me of yourself alone 1 must wait or go away. I should scorn myself if 1 deemed the fault yours not to he loved is my misfortune not any thing blameworthy in you a and he turned gently away. Margaret stood for a Long time where he had left her her fair hair loosened by the wind falling Over her face As leaning thoughtfully on her hand she looked steadily toward the ground. The Sun lighted it like Gold As its beams fell slant its abundant hands. Maria sat alone that afternoon hut strangely enough her thoughts were upon these two. When the dusk of the evening set in she heard Swift Steps coming up the walk and Margaret burst into the room. Quot what is love a she cried. Quot Maria you Are Wiser than i Tell me what is love a it was too dark for Margaret tip see How this question changed Maria a look and How Cheek and neck and brow reddened at this question Margaret could not see this and sitting Down by Maria a Side she took her hand in her clasp and pressed for an answer. When Maria found Tongue quot Wiser ones have vainly asked a she said. She feared the trembling of her Tongue the rapid bounding of her heart would betray the fact that she had Learned the secret. Quot of Maria it must be a fearful thing to love any one not your Mother i mean love some one else some Man Lam sure i do not know How love comes or what makes it do you a again the color ran Over Maria a face but her heart did not beat quite As last nor her voice tremble As it had done. Her secret her very own and not another a had been invaded by this Friend who had plunged into its midst All unknowing where she stood for Maria had Given her heart unasked to the one that this Day had offered his own to Margaret. Soon Margaret laughed merrily child that she was in All her we ays. Quot poor me a she exclaimed. Quot had it been you Maria i should have said it Wras All quot who is it dear what is it you have not told me a said Maria. A strange frenzy had seized her she Felt determined to Force from Margaret slips the name she dreaded to heart the name she already knew. Quot it is his secret not mine a said Margaret when thus pressed childishly unaware that she had already betrayed him. A True True forgive me a was Maria a reply. Some dreadful Demon had been whispering her to hate her Friend who had stepped before her in the love of a Man to whom All unasked she had Given her own of cart. But she tried to banish the temptation and the thought alike. Margaret was innocent of All wrong toward Here she did not even return the love that had been offered and so in order to drive away the Demon of distrust and hate which disappointed love so often brings she Drew Margaret into her arms and kissed her. Quot thatis right dear a she said quot another a secret is not your own. I can not Tell you what love is when it comes you will Margaret nestled closely to her bosom and drawing Maria sear to her lips whispered quot there is one i wanted to have love you i done to know but it seems to me there is time chapter iii. Two years have passed. Mrs. Brandon has recovered her health strength and spirits in the congenial atmosphere of that City life in which her youth was passed. The renewed the acquaintance of her Early Days and had the customs of France existed would have found herself a Middle aged Belle in the society where she was a girlish Belle Twenty five years before. Introduced to a new life Margaret had Given up her botanical studies All that remained to put her in mind of them was a half filled herbarium which she Seldom saw and a pot of dead a selenium. She kept it she scarcely knew Why vet she always fancied a touch of Romance Clung to its faded and shrivelled fronds Maria and she were no longer intimate though no Grain Lind crossed Timeir Friend ship. They were separated by distance thut was All. In her new life Margaret found much to claim her attention much that was in common with Ordinary girl experience. The was no longer an unconscious child she studied no longer plants but human beings. Her Mother wished her to marry one suitor after another had received his dismissal. Quot i do not want to leave Home a was All she said. To father to Mother to suitors the same cry. Her Mother trove to reason with her. Quot we want you too my child but we shall not live forever. Do you not wish a Home of your own two Homes quot quot never Mamma do not speak of it a and she would clasp her arms about her mothers neck and kiss her. Or. Harris called whenever he came to the City but he no longer wore the Bright fearless look of old. He had lost his color and his curious resemblance so puzzling to Margaret. Lie too had left hol Busbee though Margaret liked to fancy he knew More of Maria than she did herself. The sometimes caught him looking fixedly at her the Young girl did not Blush hut steadily returned his gaze hut she found at such times he was not conscious of her presence his body alone was there his soul was afar. Opening the parlor door one morning about his usual hour he caught a glimpse of something which fixed a Long thought of plan. Seated upon a sofa was Margaret before her stood a Man twirling his moustache in an embarrassed manner. Quot this is the fifth time is it not a he heard Margaret say. Feeling himself an intruder he Drew Hack shutting the door so noiselessly that he was not heard hut Margaret whose Hack was toward the door had seen the reflection of his presence in the Mirror. Before reaching the Street he was passed by the Young Man. He paused for a moment As the latter rushed by him slamming the do r vigorously. Quot what matter a he ejaculated. Quot As Well now As Ever a and he turned his Steps. But he did not again enter the room where he had just seen Margaret he passed along up a flight of stairs and soon found himself in mrs.

Listen when 1 was an infant a terrible Domestic calamity overtook my fathers household. 1 will not pain you or myself by its recital.

When she was Botan izing a quot i Sec she has told you. That strange being was my father. At that hour he knew of no son i knew of no father. He deemed himself the last of the race / must be the an expression of poignant sorrow settled Over his face As he continued quot and yet through a slight gift of mine Fate has its grasp on two others the two whom i would at least have drawn into the Gulf with mrs. Brandon slightly shuddered. Quot Are you cold a he asked. Quot do you divine a quot not cold hut your tale is he looked at her fixedly hesitated a moment then said quot my father lived to Tell me the Fate of my Mother he lived to Tell me what made him a wanderer on the face of the Earth. I had found those Woods once to have belonged to my fathers family. 1 purchased them not knowing what misery i bought with the Graceful Trees. I o not think me mad Mother i May Call you Mother just for this one Day i found a Man who had not looked on a mortal face for three Long years. His tastes were like mine and we met by a Rock a his Tomb he called it. I wrung from him his history. I told him mine. Do you wish to know his name a he arose and although they were alone in the room he Bent Liis lips close Down to her ear and whispered it. The Drew slightly Back. Quot not he a sue said. Quot the same the very same and do you wonder now Why i could not say again to Margaret i loved her i found my father but to lose him for he died within a month and at his own desire was buried at the foot of the Rock where first i saw him where Margaret saw him too. He charged me never to marry never to carry Iny inheritance of misfortune and crime farther Down the a a my Sony a began mrs. Brandon. A a by Esa you bless you for that word your a son 1 shall Bear my exile better now. 1 must hurry a said he quot while i have courage.

It is Best for Margaret to forget me she soon will but you you sometimes Bear me in and seizing his hat lie started toward the door. Mrs. Brandon put out her hand and detained him. Quot i do not know Margaret a heart a she said. Quot she has refused Many suitors. I doubt if she knows her own heart it May lie yours i can not Tell but whether it is or not you have no right to throw away All of life simply because of another a crime. What a hopeless world such a course would make a quot you Trust me still a he said. Quot i am glad. I fill with courage life is not All gloom now.

If Ever you desire to return if Ever you wish to Jonm Hack Promise me you will not hesitate Promise me you will her words which declared her Faith in him her caressing voice the touch of her hands weakened his Resolution. "1 Promise a he at last said. Quot and now you must see or. Brandon and Tell him you Are going. Let of not run off like a convict. Secrets Are had. At Best and at Best the world is very suspicious. There is no cause Why you should not go Chaiter in. In the morning her Mother told Margaret he was gone. She made no reply die did not seem to listen hut from that time she went less and less into Young company. She would sit hours with her work in her Lap her head drooping into her hand. Quot of what Are you thinking my child a her Mother often asked her. At such times she would smile pick up her work and answer whenever mrs. Brandon received a letter she would mention its place of sending hut Margaret evinced no interest. She asked no questions nor could her Mother have answered any As these letters merely said "1 am several months passed in this Wise and then Margaret wrote for Maria to visit her. She came and the old time Friendship seemed to take its Olden course. Margaret deferred to Maria in every thing. A in at Many secret consultations took place Between the two. Maria had the air of a protector Over Margaret. Kaon her Mother wondered 1 Hough no jealous thought of another s influence came Over her. Margaret loved them both hut in different fashions. By and by they proposed a Littie journey together those two girls. Margaret smother was glad and hastened a few Little preparations. A a a twill do Margaret Good a she said. Quot even now 1 Causee Itiat Maria a coming has effected a change for the better the dear chi id is More cheerful. A the cyclones of life do not always give warning when we look Hack it is in Surprise at our unconsciousness even to the moment before the storm that changes All our life. That journey Over which mrs. Brandon had so Many Happy thoughts in the wonders it was to do for Margaret was the casting of her Faux a Fate that was to draw her Young life Down to the dark grave. It All came out soon enough now. Amy Mother a moaned Margaret quot who will Tell her you must Maria hut what shall stay her under the grievous knowing All that was before her Maria shrank from its doing. Quot her Only one quot she said. All Mystic utterances fled before the great Burden upon her. An incurable disease terrible in its nature yet to Day fearfully frequent among both men and women the surgeons knife and death in near Prospect these More certainly known after thut journey which mrs. Brandon so fondly hoped would cheer Margaret s spirits and restore her health. How she broke the terrible truth to father and Mother Maria never knew when the bitter task was done she returned to Margaret Pale As one who had passed through some fearful mental torture. Quot my child my Darling child a moaned her Mother bending Over the sofa where she Lay. Quot done to Mother done to said Margaret a spasm of pain sharply drawing her features. Quot Mother dear Mother a said she a moment after throwing her arms about her mothers neck a it can to be helped done to let us cry we have had a Happy Home together and i will leave you another Comfort. Send for Hisiu Mother i must see no need now to mention names but As month after month slowly passed and he did not come Margaret grew More restless. But at last the hour came when lie too stood in her room. Quot leave us together a said Margaret. When he came out to seek her parents the agony of death seemed to have passed Over his face. Father Mother,.and Lover talked Long together. Quot and you a at last said mrs. Brandon. Quot it must he As she wishes a he said quot it can not change my quot let it be As the child says a answered the father the Mother Jowid her head on to her hands and wept. A week More and Margaret Lay dead in the House. Beside her coffin mourning with the a to rants stood he so lately made her Hus land so soon left a widowed bridegroom. Did Margaret love him i think not. Long suspecting her Fate she had dreamed no dream of marriage and least of All to him whom she had set aside As the chosen of her Friend she had dreamed no dream of marriage or of Long life but she knew his regard for her Mother and left him to by called son. Two years More passed when he sought Maria s Home. Quot shall it be As she said a he asked quot you know Maria that 1 loved her the was my first but she bade me love you and i can Promise to be a kind Maria Suid the knew that Margaret a father and Mother would be glad Ami that in pleasing herself she should add to the happiness of very Many others. The High time of passion had ebbed in her heart yet she did not marry without a kind of love. If not with the bounding pulse of youth she now took the marriage vows vet still it was with the sober even regard that promises More of quiet happiness. And thus the Romance of Margaret had its fulfilment and thus Maria s own presentiment retained half its Power and was shorn of half its dread. A Long and uneventful life was passed by this couple yet no children grew from it. For this Maria borrowed. But her husband exhibited no re Grets. Although twice married the wish of his father was fulfilled he was the last of Liis family. The unexplained mystery of his mothers life the world never heard if lie himself knew it he told no one not even her whose presence and love gave him a Comfort lie once had thought out of his reach forever. When at last his life we As ended upon his Tomb upon the tombs of those two the wives so strangely won was placed no inscription simply upon each was carved a pot of maniac incendiary. He Fig Lita Hie police and firemen with revolver Anil a it last. From the new Orleans Democrat about a Quarter past nine of clock last night a fire was discovered in a two Story House on third Street betwee Carondelet and Baronne. The firemen and police hastened upon the scene and found the House with dosed doors burning inside. It appears that the lire was set by a Man known by the name of Louis Gauster. Better known As crazy Joe. When the police approached the front door Joe made his appearance on the scene and told them that he would kill the first one that dared to enter the House. The officers then ran to the fire alarm Box and turned in an alarm. These officers were Flanagan and Donovan and before they could get into the House several other policemen and a Large portion in the fire department had appeared on the scene. Then it became necessary to enter the premises at ail Hazard. Such being the ease officers Donovan and Flanagan broke open the front door and As they did so they were ree a Ved wit ii three shots fired in rapid succession from a Colts revolver which crazy Joe held in his hand standing at the head of the stairs. As the fir to three shots sped wide of their intended Mark the officers never faltered it tried to gain the top of the stairs As the tire was in the second Story of the building. Tiie two officers were followed by the firemen and several others of their brother policemen. As crazy Joe saw that he was about to to overpowered he discharged the Osiier two Chambers of his pistol Point Blank at the crowd but from some unexplained reason the hails failed to do their desired work. After Joe had emptied the contents of his revolver he retreated into one of the rooms which was on lire regardless of the volumes of smoke he had to encounter and fastened the door. Officers Donovan and Flanagan who seem always to have been in the Lead with giant strength forced open the door and As it swung Hack on its hinges they could just see crazy Joe through the blinding wreaths of smoke armed with an artillery Cutlass waiting for them to approach.
