If love the love 1 craved would Cove and fold its arms around me then would Joy abide with me forever peace would it me and blew and Lue would round out from this Nar a fullness new and Sweet and wide. And kit i fretted against my simple lot. And to i prayed for fairer broader ways. Making a Burden of the very Days in mad regret Tor that which i had not. And then one came unto my Jumble a Loor and hiked to enter. Quot Art thou love Quot 1 Quot or wealth or Fame else Shalt thou to , my child but 1 am More. Quot open to me 1 Pray make to thy Gorst Ait thou Shalt and although Iio a lit of or fail or love within my hand i hold a. That with my coming cometh All tie let Cut a that thou Hast longed gov a Lier Imp 8 Jet was her voice and eyes fair Trio ugly in her steadfast i saw the look of one loth True and Wii let. My Pieart was sore and with Guirdy Gra get it i bade her enter. How trans floured hemmed now the faithful love Itiat at my Fet to Long had lain unpriced How wide and Shanetl Smail i it paths wherein 1 ibid been led. Duty grew Beautiful wit i Calm consent i saw the a Ohtani wealth of land or Soa. But All fair things seemed Kiven unto me the hour 1 clasped the hand of Doar Content. The nov Brno Story. We were very poor said the gov error nay Mother and i. We lived in a Little Cabia on leu. Linton farm and saw a hard time. My father halt a died when i was 10 years old leaving us nothing but an honest reputation and although i was Stout and Hearty my wages were very Low and i had to toil Hite and Early to provide the necessaries of life. But i suppose i would have been Happy and contented enough that is As much As we unset is led mortals usually Are if it had t teen for a woman. I Don t know Why it was that Helen Linton made such an impression on me for she had by no Means those great and Noble que amp Liteh by which men As a general tiling Are attracted toward the opposite sex. Of the contrary she was proud arrogant and overbearing and 1 was Couf Dent if she thought of me at All it was with feelings of contempt and to disdain Lone. Wot on account of my personal appearance it is True for though i was Rou Irh and uncultivated and my lands Wen hard with excessive toil and my face browned by exposure to the Sun still i had wonderful strength and great agility and my hair and eyes were As dark As Midnight and Many Saiti that i was handsome. But i As poor and she was wealth ii. I was Oen. Linton a hired hand and she was Gen. Linton daughter and it was the fild old Story. It must have been her bewildering Beauty that Drew Memore and More toward her for one was a queenly looking girl with flashing eyes and magnificent dark Brown hair and a form tall and Majestic and stately. But however it might have been i am certain of one tiling and that is that i Learned to Uve her with a maddening painful consuming Pas Aion that seemed about to devour my whole being. I tried very hard a Mottier it and to drive her image from my heart. I knew 1 might As Well think of plucking Down tie Moon or the stars Aste have dared to aspire to or hand. A it was All no Avail the More struggled uie More i became entangled. In the morning noon and night there was but one face Itiat saw and hut one voice Liat i heard and that was the face and the voice of Haimi Linton. What was worst of All to me. In some Way she Lacov ered my secret How i can hardly Tell. They say murder will out and the same most assuredly can to said Akk iut love. I had never spoken Airout it to any one not even my Mottier and ast it i Helen i had scarcely Ever Keu to tier of any subject. It is True at sometimes she would give me ins Truo sons in regard to the Flower Garden Weka go i. Linton had selected me to manage having As he said More opinion of my taste in such matters than any of the rest of ids workmen Bat she never condescended further. I worshipped her like a Star for afar off and knew the distance Between us to be As wide and As impassable. Oue Day she came into the Galen when i was at work there and impelled by some unknown wet As it were i gathered and presented to by a Choice bouquet of Flowers and whether it was from my guilty looks that she then discovered All and determined to Check me in the beginning or whether she had already probed to tie Depths of my heart and thought i was presumptions i know not but certain it a that she never spoke to Ine after that. Bhe had been in the habit of giving me a Nad of recognition whenever she met me before this but after thl i she it awed me by Wjt Mut even a Lauoe disdain within her haughty Eye and contempt upon Hersil Irful lip. You May know that my life was an wretched As it could Well be. I used to sit Down by the fire a a our Little Caln after my hard Day work was done and curse my wretched Fate and Call Iod unjust in what i floor leered the distinctions he made in the human race but i Little know then what tiie sequel would be. Crowds of company Gay ladies and gentlemen came every summer from a die City to spend the season at Linton Ball and it happened that when summer came among Che rest a Young idea Leman named Arthur it. John. He was rept Ted to be wealthy find handsome he certainly was acid it was not very Long before he com mended paying devoted attention to men. Linton r daughter and it Wasfy in a a Ough to see that Khe was As infatuated As he was. They uset Llo ride by our Little cottage on the Bright he Mer evenings on the Forest Road As it was called of their Pran ing horses Btu it eight Ding fondly above her Whister ing words of love and tenderness and a he listening to them with a Fleish on Iier Beek and a smile upon her up. I i member one evening that i stood watching them As Urey Rode Down from the wild Glen bathed in the Golden Halo that the gorgeous fires of Sunset threw upon the scene while the summer Zephyr loaded with the perfume of wild Flo if Era blew Back her massive hair fro ii her queenly brow until the scene seemed to me celestial and she an inhabitant of celestial regions. Just then she calf rat sight of me As i looked at her Al Moi to entranced an j spoke something in a Low tone to Lier companion. What it was i never knew but they Lith looked at me an instant and then the air rang with their laughter and i heard him say something Almut presumption and impudence and i guessed what it was. It was hard to be thus Tor Ureil simply for no Otner reason than i dec fuse i had a heart and could not court Ltd a its in let Ulses and when i look let ack on that 1 Ime it seems to me like some terrible dream. My fortunes they any never come in ogly and they always came too when we least expected them. My Mother suddenly sickened and died and i was thus left alone a wretched outcast on the Earth As i stood Over her rave it seemed to me that i Hail buried every hot a. I determined to leave the spot where 1 id seen much misery. I cared very Litt e where l went. Anywhere far away from there. Gen. Linton paid me what Little he Owell me and i struck out for the West. Railroads and steamboats were not half As numerous then As the Are now and even if they had by men i was too poor to Avail my self of their advantages. I walked therefore Many a weary Mil Funti after several Days of travel i found myself at the outskirts of a growing City. Here i Stop nil because thought i had gone far enough and for the ii est of All reasons because my Money Hud Given out. I had to do something. A Large Mant Ion with Beautiful grounds stood 1 before me applied to the a Wner for Law. He said he was very much in Nee Ltd of Gardener but did not like to employ me without reference. After hesitating for a while however he concluded to engage me for j Mouth and if he liked me he would then engage me permanently he a a Aid. I found out in a Short time that he was a lawyer of extensive Jira Celce immensely a earthly and lived at his ease. I Followell out tie Rule i had adopted Ltd through life to l e honest and industrious under full ciroumstanc�4 and at the end of the month my employer whose name w a a Parker sent for me he said to pay Lue my met Mth 8 wages. He then Surpri ii me by asking me if i could read Ani and write i told him i could thanks to indefatigable Energy Antl perseverance at the Little Cabin on Gen. Linton farm during the Long Winter evenings when the labors of the Day were Over i had act i lured the rudiments of a first rate English education. My employer then told me that during tiie past month he had of it served me closely and that he believed me to be an Hon est Man. Quot i will Tell you something More Quot said he Quot that i have disco Ere Ltd. You Are a Young Man of extra oni Inary intelligence. Gardening is not your proper avocation. I am doing an extensive practice of the Law and i Nee ii some one to stay in my office. I know of no one who is better suited than you. With your application and Industry within Oue year from now you May be admitted to the bar. You Mut consent to be Cut Mie my i did t know exactly How it was but suddenly judge Parker and the table Seemet to become inverter and the room went whirling around and around an it i then we All seem ii flying off through the air like Aldrin a the Aad the next thing i knew i was sobbing with my head upon the table. He did t say anything until i had regained my com misure and then told him All. Wii at a hard time i had had through life and How this had been the Only Light that had Ever shown on my dark pathway. Tears sprang into the old Man eyes As told him but he said i must never despair and he was certain i would come out victorious. I went into judge Parker office and i studied hard and at the end of tiie year As lie pre it Lite Ltd 1 obtained my License of practice Law. He then Aske Ltd me what i intended doing told him that i intended to go off to sume rising place and grow up with it Quot and if 1 Ever do anything Quot said i Quot Remmel it or that you Are the Man who made he said that i should do no such thing. He was getting old he said and was unable to attend Proi Erly to a great Deal of his business and he wanted me to stay and ass it him Quot you must let a my partner Quot said he with a share of the profits Quot Quot again the room Seemel turning around and around but Liis time 1 managed to retain my feelings and Only said Quot May heaven thank you for 1 can to Weil it was t Long let before the people seemed to take an interest in me and they elected me to tiie state legislature and then after awhile to Congress and i always continued in the Sanie honest industrious course until they had made me their governor. I had heard but very Little in All that time from Linton Hall. I had heard Itiat Gen. Linton had die and Arthur 8t. John and Helen hot it i mar Rie 1, and that the old place had let Een sold and that was All. As for my part i was still a Bachelor Many a time amid the thunders of a applause that had surrounded me fair hands had thrown me Beautis in Flowers and Ruby lips had smiled and Bright eyes had glistened when i was near but i thought of cold cruel haughty Ellen tin ton and had judged them All alike and had turned away. One Winter evening shortly aft r i had been elected governor when the wind was howling outside and i was enjoying the comforts of my room with in and wondering if any horseless wretch were out in that storm to my great astonishment the Servent ushered in a lady. It was something by usual but i it be to her As politely As i could and offered her a seat when the Light fell upon her features and notwithstanding the sunken Eye and hollow Cheeks to my Oon starvation i recognized the face of Helen Linton. To my Relief however i found that she had failed to recognize be. No she would As soon have looked for a form from the Tomb As have looked for me at that place. The had come she said on plan business. Her father had been a very wealthy Man and had left her a Large property but her husband had been a Ery dissipated and having run through with it All and finding the family in want in an unlucky moment had committed a forgery for which he had been tried and found guilty and she had come to me for his Pat Don.
