True he was rather grave for so Young a Man and stalled Bat Seldom Bat when he did smile it was like the e breaking Forth of a Sun beam imparting life and gladness. But grave or otherwise he was All that she wished him to her respect for him equalled her love both were entire. He treated her with dignified tenderness that left her nothing to ask. But time knows no indulgence not even to the most Happy who would gladly Lay a Finger on his flight lengthen the Golden Momenta. The first Montha of wedded life soon hasten away fleeting months they Are and Rush by to join the past Eter Fly and in their train come the cares the duties the trials perchance the miseries of life. The Youthful Lirije commenced her married life with a determination to please her husband in everything her deportment i apparel and her housekeeping. About the first two she Felt no anxiety that which had won would certainly retain him and she would be careful not to fall into that species of negligence which too often follow the marriage ceremony and which is too Well calculated to produce coldness if not disgust. Her Domestic arrangements were a More serious matter. She was but Little More than eighteen and though her Educa Tion in this particular Branch had not been neglected she yet had Little skill in that depart ment when experience is so important. She magic Many mistakes and would have made More but for the near neighbourhood of her Mother whom she frequently consulted and whom landscape making the returning sunbeams seem still brighter. Years As Well As months glided away and when Helen was four and Twenty she was the Mother of a son a daughter and another Bod.

But Helen did her Best and hoped in time that that would become easy which was now so difficult. As before said she resolved to please her husband in All things and doubted not for an instant that he would be equally Soli Titus to please her. On Ono Point Ahe anticipated a difference. Her parents had so plainly told her of her faults and had Laboured so sedulously id Correct them that Sho was conscious of being far from what she ought to be consequently her husband would have much to Over look and forgive be on the contrary was so Correct so perfect thai she would have Little or nothing to sex Csc. But he Hud loved her and sought her for a wife knowing her to be a very imperfect creature and would not that love him to Pardon All errors Tho More readily As they would not be wilful unquestionably it would. With views and feelings and designs like these Helen Howard her married life and she conformed to her plan As nearly per haps As one s action Ever conforms to one s practice to one t True she did not find herself 11 suiting on n Summor s Iea when not n arc Silti of win flies o or Tho some of her cares were irksome some of her self denials not a Little painful. She found or. Howard exceedingly particular. This however did not Surprise her it waa what she Antici i paled. Ii ova could one so perfect in All things Clarl manners taste fail of being parti Bim and often limes Sld is difficult to please the manner of doing it would be Arf Rettic Lher him or not. When possible she always consulted him on joints where she supposed he would have any frequently she was obliged to act when to consult him was out of the question and to Mellow in seemed to Helen r. Every thing she did according to Felicity. She saw nothing and heard nothing to Lead her to doubt that it was As perfect As could be experienced in this imperfect world. Indeed she knew not that so far As con nubian happiness was concerned a Cloud had Ever passed Over her daughter s path and it was by slow degrees that she Learned that she must submit to her husband in everything. The spending an evening in a neighbor s even the most trifling matters of taste must be As much subjected to his control As the most important transactions of life. Helen cheerfully acknowledged her husband s her Mother had taught her and the Bible taught her that authority belonged to him that it was her duty and would be for her happiness to obey him in All things. Her affectionate heart prompted her to this course but Ehe was a human being she naturally had taste and inclinations of her own and those were not Al ways of course in exact accordance with those of another. Sometimes in Case of collision she could Nof help feeling that if she yielded on nil important Points or. Howard might occasionally yield in trifles. She argued with a sigh he finds it so hard to conform to the wishes of another sometimes Why can t he realize How difficult it is for me to do it Al ways 1" if the half formed thought arose in her mind that her husband was selfish she in stantly banished it. Of she would soy he is not selfish men Are used to Autho Rity and arc not aware what it of entime costs the subject. I on this Point they arc nil much perfect Good nature and unwillingness to detract any thing from the perfection with which she had invested or. How Ard led to this conclusion. Had Helen s own father entered her mind at that moment she Faust have acknowledged that Between some men there was a striking contrast. With this however Helen could have got along very Well. She had As Ottlo obstinacy a any of her species and if in the moment of trial her some times rebel the feeling was soon gone and she yielded with Grace and cheerfulness. That which was much harder to Bear was that As or. Howard grew was difficult to appease his displeasure and sometimes perhaps very trifling inadvertence two or three times before the kiss and re conciliation would be granted. From her own heart it flowed spontaneously and however Strong Jar. Howard s objection might be to be stowing Praise tin another he never manifested any repugnance to receiving it himself. Helen loved to Praise her husband she loved to repeal to him the Praise bestowed by others it greatly increased her own happiness. But when her special Aud sometimes laborious a torts to do that which she thought would give or. Howard Peculiar satisfaction would fail to Call Forth one word of look of grateful even of attracting observation her heart would almost sink with disappoint ment and to be quite Happy it was indispensable that she should be very forgetful. But was or. Howard the impeachable being his wife was willing to believe him1 on the contrary he was far from it As Well As other a men. He had Given his he never confessed and oftentimes when choked with the violence of her emotion. Do rat thus break my heart forget that i Hare displeased you now or Ever for wilfully i would never do so. Of say that All is forgotten Sho waa looking up into his eyes but their expression was cold and unfeeling a Ever. In truth he was moved for he saw the agony of his wife s feelings but he thought that perhaps were he less ready to forgive he should have less frequent occasion to do so and buffered not a feature to relax. Helen looked steadily at him for a while her heart was throbbing and every mus Cle of her Fuce was working with catch the first indication of forgiveness and re conciliation but nothing of the kind was there. Her Muscles ceased to tremble her heart ceased its tumultuous throbbing and she calmly arose and left the room. This was something new arid for an instant or. Howard feared to had gone too at for an instant he was inclined to follow her but the former thought returned have made peace too readily More marked displeasure a have a better effect and he restrained the impulse. There waa a voice within which whispered that he had not done quite right nevertheless he returned to his engagements and left Helen to attend to hers. When Helen left the parlor she went to her chamber. She fell perfectly Calm and indifferent. For nearly seven thought she it has been almost my sole study to please him and what is my Reward 1" she sat Down and mused. Her entire intellectual being seemed resolved into memory and her whole married life rushed in review before her. She saw her own uniform desire to secure his approbation and do his or. Howard s exacting his fault finding his unforgiving spirit. It is too thought he is selfish arbitrary and implacable at the close of this train of thought Helen s own feelings alarmed her. Her heart was too quiet. She longed to have it gush Forth As in times past in tenderness toward her husband but it would it was rather feeling than thought that led her to. He is selfish arbitrary arid implacable and firmly clasping her hands together Ehe exclaimed in deep bitterness of spirit i shall never love him pc Var before had or. Howard been to anxious for the Tea hour As on this afternoon and scarcely in his life had Vivo hours so reached them solves to such an interminable haps it would effect that which he so ardently desired should be accomplished without the slightest descent from dignity on his part. In the usual Vanlier he expressed his disapprobation. Helen calmly replied that she was very sorry and to ild be very careful that the same error should not be again committed. Or. How Ard was thunderstruck by her Calm indifference he would much rather have seen a tempest of feeling violent in proportion to the unnatural Tranquility that had so Long reigned. Dignity and anxiety had a Sharp but momentary conflict and the latter to far gained the Victory a to Lead him1 to you have not appeared As usual for some Days Post Helen Are you _ i am very Ohe replied with the same unmoved tone and manner As be raising her Eye from the work in which she was Al continued or. Howard with sup pressed emotion you Are not a cheerful As i like to see Helen to ply her Needle with All Diligence and remained silent. Or. Howard watched her for some time with deep then silently left the parlor. A few More Days spent just like the proceed intone Howard to resolve on leaving Home for a week or two. Hitherto his unavoidable journeys had been seasons of Greit trial to Helen. As soon a he would be Gong the Days and hours were literally counted until his re turn might be expected but now she heard him propose to leave Home fora number of Days with As much Tranquility an if he had Only pro posed to take an airing. With her usual care she saw everything was properly prepared for his Oliero were no entreaties that he All possible no parting kiss which assured him that her whole heart and soul went with him. He de in four Days was at Home he was on the rack during the whole period of his absence. Indeed his feelings were such that when he arrived Al his own Bouse he was really indisposed. Helen met him with All due Cour Tesy expressed her satisfaction that be had re turned without Accident and regretted his impaired health just As she would have done had it been a common acquaintance under similar circumstances. She neglected no duly How Ever but nursed him with untiring Assiduity though with no More tenderness than her Bene Volence would have led her to Manifest Loa sick stranger How much longer is this to last said or. Howard one Day after she had stood for some Lime silently bathing his temples but carefully averting her eyes from his. He clasped her hand in his Asho spoke. Without a he could with difficulty fix his mind on its up word in reply she disengaged her hand and Propri Ato business. An undefined feeling of self reproach and apprehensions haunted him. But thought he she will Fly to my arms the moment i enter the House and then 1 will As sure her that All is Long As the Lime acc mod slowly a it drag ged itself along he would not go to his House until the usual hour to have done otherwise would have been too great a sacrifice of Bis dignity but when the Bell chimed Tho signal for him to his office with rapid Steps he hastened homeward. The Tea table was spread when he entered the eating room but Helen was not there. Very she appeared with Only a film word of Cour Helen had always been courteous even to her herself at the to is me a great Deal Tetter had he re la Jya icy and cheerfulness. I fear Urc implied or.

Howard took his seat but mechanically for to partake of the evening meal was a Mailer that had not entered his mind. His glanced upon Helen s face from time to fact donate wife May with All propriety express manner it p039ibiei what this new me read by Frd hitherto been in a Hie i Derree and Many times she with now he completely at fault. Sigh and tears sued forgiveness when he alone discovered any of suppressed feel was in fault. She was always prone to be -1- Lieve. Herself to blame and peace she must have terms or be wretched. If she manifested by complaint that her nature was but As an calmly walked to a closet to replace the vial the Convente of which she had been using. Or. Howard closed his eyes and leaned his head on the Back of his chair with a suppressed sigh. He neither knew what to do nor what to think. The person who moved about him who conversed with him and attended so care fully to All his wants seemed entirely another being than his own Helen. Formerly she had been just like an affectionate confiding dependent child every Joy and every sorrow was poured into his car her whole soul was Laid before him. At once sue had become the dignified reserved self possessed woman. She remedies sly dictate her actions towards or. Howard was her mind Active in studying duty. She was too Well principled had too much too great a regard to the proprieties of to do aught unbecoming to her relative position or to leave undone that which could reasonably be demanded of her. Her husband s welfare and respectability she Ead favored to promote to the utmost of her Power his happen cts so far As it could be done Wilvin her present feel Ings but this could not be done by expressing tenderness and no Section which she did not feel it was co Liary to her very nature. Helen had no could she not Dis close her heart to him to whom she was bound by the nearest of All lies she would disclose it to none other. Perhaps had her Mother been living the maternal bosom might have been the receptacle of her trials but As death had removed this sympathizing Friend no other should be a substitute. Not even before her two oldest children did she Ever utter a word that would betray her secret uneasiness but filler were the complaints that she murmured in the in heeding ear of her youngest boy As she pressed him to her heart an scalding wore the tears she eyed upon his head called Forth by her blasted Hopes. Except Tor her children s Sake life had no charms for her. To a benumbed heart what can be either attractive or interesting yet Helen dearly loved her children and on their account life was valuable. The human heart that har anything to love and that a loved in return cannot be utterly and desolate and wretched. Had or. Howard been what lie had now be come one Short Vea before he had been among the happiest of husbands and Helen the Moat beloved of wives.
