Rather ask how is it possible to avoid loving you ? And besides, is it really so very incomprehensible, Avi.s? Yon have known me just the same length of time, and yet—yet—I have ventured to hope that yon—that you love mo, dear. Oh, Avis, is the sweet hope false? Have I deceived myself? Or will you indeed confirtu it by promising to he, sonic happy day, my wife ?'* He ivonld have caught and clasped the fair girl in his arms, but she, keeping him hack by a gesture of her little hand, while her great dark eyes were fixed with hcseeehiiig earnestness upon his face, answered: “It is not what I wish, or even what you wish, that must he iliought of, Mr. Kuy, hut yonr mother—vonr mother, who has been like a mother to me also—so gootl, so generous. Wliat would she say ” A voice, tiemnlons yet stern, inter-ruptetl her—a voice that made them turn and start in some confusion. “She wonhl say that you are right ill reiuemheriiig her. Avis, and that she is glad of this proof of your gratitude; lor the rest, Roy Livingstone’s mother looks farther than her own family circle, and higher than to a l)oor dc|)endent, however good or fair, when she .seeks a bride for her only son and a future mistress for the Laurels. lA*ave us. Avis. I do not blame you eliild. Forget this folly; it was 110 fault of yours. I will speak to you further presently; wait in my room. “And so,” she went on, turning to her son, when Avis, silently weeping, had left them—“and so this is the result of your artist folly. You would paint my pretty companion’s picture, lorsooth, and wliile so doing have stolen her heart and lost yonr own. I might have looked for this; I slionld have ’•een moixj careful. But do yon lioiie that I shall tolerate such folly ? I overheard you ask the girl just iiuw' to he yonr vvifc.” ‘Yon did,” the young man answered gently, but with a resolution that was unmistakable. “1 love her, and will marry her.” “Without my consent? Without your mother’s blessing ? Is this the affection—the duty of my own child ?” ile |)ut his arms around lier. “I shall never set yon at doflniico, mother, and least of all for Avis’ sake. 8lie is too good, too uixlciitly atluelied to you to do aught that could wound yoM. But will you nut have compassion for us also, mother? We love. Avis has been to von as a dau<;hter always; let it be mine to make her so indeed. Where could you ever find a child so truly yours-whoso heart and soul you know—whose mind is of your own pure training? I love her with a love that will not change. Unless you give me Avis for a wife 1 shall not marry.” “Absunl!” Mrs. Livingstone’s eyes flashed scornfully. “When our guests arrive to-day you will find many far superior to Avis. A foundling! Itis not her iwverty—wo are ricit enongh-rr' but her birth.” “We know nothing of it and 1 care nothing. It is herself I love.” “Lisfcn, Roy.” The lady’s proud face softened as she lahl one wliitc hand on lier son’s shonhler, widle his arm stole around her fondly, “Yon arc iny only child ; all my hopes are bound up in you. Let us not quarrel abouttliis foolish girl. She is deariu me also, l/it us take time to tiiiuk; compare the girl with others. When our guests ai*e gone, it you are in the same iiiiitd, wo will see what is best for all. Wdl you promise ?” “To wait for your consent until our guests are gone ? Yes, 1 can promist* that.” “And moaiitiine not to speak of thia to Avis.” “Thatif haixicr, mother. But if you will tell her that you may consent I will obey you.” “1 will tell her every woixl (hat has passed between us,” saiil Mrs. Livingstone. And she meant to keep hcrpi'oinise. But Av.s WHS m»l waiting fur her, us she hud ex|HM;ted. The girl hml gone to her own I'ooin, sending to Mix Livingstone a piteous little message of excuse. Her head ached. Might she 1h> allowed to keep in her own chain her? The latly smiled. “I will set her heart at rest to-mur* row,” she thought. “There is no time now.” For her expected gueds wore arriving. And when Roy looked at her inquiringly. UB he missed tlio girl. “She wiHhcd to keep her i*oom tonight,” slie whispered. “All will he well to-morrow.” But when to-morrow came a sad surprise came with it. Avis had ilis-«p|M>arcd. “That I may not catiso yon grief or pain—yon who have been to me a line mother—I fly from a toinntation that would prove too Irong Ir I ro-mained. When I am gone yonr son will soon forget me. 1 pray (rod that he may—for his sake. But 1 shall imt forget nor cfase to love you. Farewell, dearest fricuJ. Forgive vonr little    AviH.” Tliii was al); and sho had gone— leaving no trace, making no further sign. In vain Roy sought for her, even with the help of detectives, having left home and come U» the city for that purpose; while his mother, no less anxious for the safety of the lost girl, made what excuse she could to her assembled guests for his absence. After a month of weary searching he returned, lieartsick and discouraged. “Xo news,” he said, in answer to his mother’s anxious questions-; “nor will there ever be. 1 have lost all hope of finding her.” *    *    St    * A year has passed since gentle Avis disapi>eared, and once more a gay party of merry guests made the Lanitds bright and cheerful, foremost among them Rose Brandon, the beauty, and helit*ss, and belle. A great favorite was she with stately Mrs. Livingstone, and there were not Avantod those wlio named her as the fntni*c mistress of the splendid but gloomy house which her Ix'atity and joyous laughter made so bright. Even Roy Livingstone’s brow, on which (ho cloud ol disapiKilntmcnt and regret had grown lialiitnal, cleared somewhat as his artist-cycs took in her fresh, proud loveliness; and as he listened to licr aninuited talk the smile that had grown so rare stole to his lips and shone like a light in his eyes. His mother, watching him, smiletl too, well pleased. “Is she not beautiful ?” she whispered to liiin. “She would make a fair and gracious queen for the Laurels, Hoy.” But (ho gloom cAinc hack to his face as ho answered sadly: “My queen went into exile, mother, a year ago. I have a constant heart, and can'not transfer m\ allegiance.” "Roy I” cried the clear, niorry voice of Rose Brandon—“Roy, have yon given up painting? Yon used tobe so ambitions. Only a year ago, I remember, you were enthusiastic about some picture (hut was to bring yon tame. What has become of it ? Are )’ou an artist no longer?” “I painted the picture, hut never j)ut ¡ton exhibition. My mother has It ill the library. I have never painted since,” said Roy, gravely. A Kind of chill fell on the company. Instinctively tlicv felt they were on daiigcTousground. Even the beauty’s happy voice took a softer tone as s'.ie questioned gently: “May we sec the pictnre, Roy?” He arose without a word and led the way to tlit library, the guests all following, led by Rose Brandon. Last of all came Mrs. Livingstone, with her old friend, Mrs. Cl ray, a fair, sad wo-muu with silvur Ikuir. Mrs. (iray was a great invalid; an niiconqnerablc grief had preyed upon her heart for years and broken down her fragile body. She leaned heavily on Mrs. Livingstone’s anii. “What is this picture?” she asked her. “Tiie iKirtrail of one wlioiu I reared and loved as my own child, and whom we unaccountably lost, owing to an uiiliUDpy misunderstanding. She was a lovely ci'otiture and was to have been Roy’s wife. Sometimes I fear he will never marry now.” By this time they IiimI readied the library. Of the many paintings on the walls, one only was com ealed by a heavy cnrtarii; Roy drew the crimson folds aside. All exclamation from Mrs. Oray and Rose BraiKioii, and a miinnnr of udmirution freiii ail the rest, bore witness to the loveliness of the imago that was disclosed. Mrs. Cl rey pressed forward eagerly, her weakness seeming for the time forgotten. Tlie jKirtrait of a graceful girl, fair as a lily fioAVcr; the lovely wistful eyes, wi'th a worhl of loving tenderness ill their midnight depths, looked out from a face of exquisite beauty, but as ivory, (;learund pule; a tender, diiiipliiig smile u|miii the scarlet lips, a trailing spray of scarlet blossoins in the blnc-hlack hair, soft and glossy as the iTiven’s wing—a simple nibe of whhc, ami on one lovely snowy arm a cnrions golden bnu'clet. This was all. Mrs. drey stood like one entranced, her agitation visible to all. Her delicate liands were tightly locked together, her In-euih came in quick gasps. “How like!” she innniin re.l; “liow strnugely like! In heaven’s name, who is she f" “My adopted d.tnghter,” Mrs. Idv-iiigstone replied, for Roy had tnriiod aside ill silence, overcome by the sight of the lR‘unty ho had loveil and lost. “Twelve years ago I took ln‘r—then five yearM old —from a poor old tisher-inaii down on the hoach, tliieu or four miles away.

And the clothes she ware!” She sank back in Roy’s snpportiiig arms spei'chless, almost insensible. Mrs. Livingstone hastened from the rouiK, but returned immediately Avith the little garments. Weeping Avith Ioa’c and joA’, the long-bereaved motbcr identilietí them all. “Blessed be the merciful heaven that has kept licr safely and restored her to me after all these years.

Listen to me; I can tell yon where to find her.” “You!” It was Roy Avho spoke. “Yon know Avis?” “1 know her well, but I have never known until this nioiiicnt of her connection witli this familv.

The dusky gray of an antnmu twilight filled the lonely school loom iliat ufteriioon, but occasionally Ikishos of light, from a small but clieerful fire, fell on the slender, girlish tignre that sat before It in a low armchair, her soft pale cheek snp|M)iteil by one little hand, her eyes fixed on the gluAving coals.

Doicrlptlon of aWoiHlcrful Pyramid in Sonora. [Clubuabua Eulcrorisc.] Ancient ruins have reeeiitly been discovered in Sonora, which, if re-IKirts arc true, surpass anything of the kind yet found on this continent. The niiiis are about fouv leagues south of Magdalena. There is one pyramid Avhich has a base of l.-YiO feet and rises to the height of T.^iO teet. There is a Avinding roadAvay from the bottom, k'adiiig up an easy jjradc to the top, Avide enough for carriages to pass oA'cr, said to be tAventy-thrce miles in length. The outer Avails of (lie road-Avay are laid in solid masonry, huge blocks of granite in rubble Avork, and the circles are as uniform and the grade as regular as they could bo inade at (his day by oiir best eii-giiiecis. The wall is only occasionally oximsed, Ijciiig covered over Avith debris and earili, and in many places tho sahnara and other indigenous ilants and trees have gixlAvn up, giv-ng the pyramid the appearance of a muuiitaiii. To the east of the pyramid a shortdistaiiit; is a sninll inoiiiit-ain about the same size, which rises about the same heigiit, and, if re|»orts are true, it Avill prove more interesting to the archaeologist than the (lyramid. There seems to he a heavy layer of a species of gypsum alMuit halfAvay up the moiiiitain, Avhicli is as Avhite as snow, and may bo cut Into any conceivable shaiie, yet sutlieiently hard to retain its shape after being cut. Ill this layer of stone a people ot an niiknowii age have cut Iiuiidreds upon hunclieds of rooms from (5x10 to 1(5x18 feet square. These rooms arc out out. of solid stone, and so oven and true are the walls, floor and ceiling, so pininb and level, as to defy variutton. There arc no avíikIuavs in the rooms, and but one eiitraiiee, wliich is always frem the top. The rooms are but eight feet high from floor to ceiling; the stone is so white that it seems almost transparent, and tjip rooms .are not at all dark.

DesirojrIiMrMieiilicaii Forests. (Detroit Fuot.J Mr. Perry Haniiali, of Traverse City, said, iu the course of an inter-vieAV, that the pine forests of this State would last pbout ten or fifteen years more; that is, before the year 1900 the great lumber industry of Mieliiguii woe Id bare died out for Avaiit ot material. There seonis to be no way to prevent this result. The oAvncrs of the pino lauds bought them for tbe s)M‘cial piiriiose of converting tlieir groAVth of pines intc logs, lumber and cash. It seciiis like a work of devastation, but, Avhether Uie rapid clearing Avill in tho long run appear tu be the most pretitable irovo in a business view or not, ft is iirogrcssiiig too rapidly, and the plants for lojp-ging, sawing and traus|mrtatioii are too extensive and too well established to admit ot auy doubt that ihe manufacture will go on UB there is uot a mcrchuiitable pine tree left standiog in Uie lower |ieniudula. The sumo fate is in store for the hardwood lumber trees, of whicli there issucb a splendid growth in tho northern part of the State—ash, maple, biivli and otliers. Witliiu tho lust ten years, and cliietly within tho lust five, steam and water mills have sprung up for llni luunufaeiuro of these Avoods into lumber for liunne fiiiiriiing, fnridtnrc and cabinetwork, and they are iiiereaslng at a rate that promises toexhan^.t the supply during the lifelinie of some who are now eu-gugi'd in the businevf.
