Hour after hour passed and still the merry Leals rang Eaily out from the old Gray Tower and As the Day Onward towards noon the Village girls with it islands on their beads and Rasys a their bosoms might be seen gather. Ngia a Gay Circle round the old Arch of the Village Church and the Young peasantry All in their beat array were collecting on the Green without while Ever and anon on horseback or on foot the yeomanry of the neighbourhood and the retainers of , came thronging in to swell the Jovial concourse. At length High clanged from the Turret and Ere Long on the outskirts of the crowd. Under the huge old Oaks the cry was heard they Are coming i 1 and shortly afterwards the Roll of wheels and the thick trampling of horse hoofs announced the bridal company. A train of mounted servants in Green Coats with White favors at their Botton holes and in their hats Ted the Van and then a Choice band of Gentry of the neighbourhood splendidly honed and gorgeously attired Rode gallantly along the escort of the of de Lacy with her attendant Maidens Radiant in Beauly and resplendent with Many veils and Orange Wreatha and All the Bright paraphernalia Maiden purity and Nup Iti the Sec Otid sat baronet detach in tended husband of his Sweet Evelyn the Young lord Andrew Mildmay he was a heavy coarse Dull looking whose splendid garb sat ill on Bis ungainly coarse and heavy As were his form and face the mind within was yet coarser and More earthy. And men even the rude peasantry muttered among themselves that it was a foul shame and girls shuddered As they thought of the sur Render the sacrifice of a creature pre eminently spiritually Lovely to so Mere an animal As the lord Andrew Mildmay. And one or two of the better class of yeomanry might have been heard muttering among themselves that it would have been a bitter Day for Henry fit Osborne had he been of the living. And who says he is not of the living7" cried a loud cheery voice just As the cavalcade came of to the Church Gates. Why All the world says so Jim replied one of the first speakers. Then All the world lies answered the other a Fine Stout Well made Young Man add you la Bee As much Ere the Day be an hour hush mistress Evelyn god bless her then Rose a loud and Hearty Beer to which the Afir Young girl responded by a Bow of her Graceful head with the color flashing Crimson to brow Cheek and neck As she mounted the Steps to the Crnich door where the Good vicar awaited her anxiously with a wondering and Wistful Eye. But though she had become quite Pale again no traces of that Strong emotion which had so shaken her in the morning was now visible she was the calmest and though gravest the most self possessed of the party. But Mertoun observed that she cast no glance toward the Bride Groom nor none towards her father As in the midst of her fair Bride Maiden she ascended the old Chancel overhung with the Bano Exell trophies of her House and now the parties were assembled around god s holy altar and the solemn ceremonial was commenced. Evelyn s Eye was Calm and her manner Stead and Resolute though As the service proceeded the old vicar might perceive that fhe looked eagerly and often toward the door round which the Village throng had gathered in dense ranks. _ impressed twill an idea that she desired he knew not pro tract the Lime the Good old Man read wondrously impressive were the wrap of rat most Beautiful and touch ing by the Clear and sonorous tones of Norman Merlon s voice. Still sentence after sentence proceeded and if she had expected any interruption none came and Evelyn s Eye began to assume a wild and terrified expression. Now he had reached the solemn abjuration and marvellously powerful and striking was the emphasis of his voice As he pronounced aloud the words let him now speak or else hereafter forever hold his peace he paused and there was a deep and breath less silence and every heart appeared to recoil on itself trembling and expectant. Ere he time to resume the ceremonial 11 the utmost a roved had heard a found i Hoof on hardened ground and instantly a wild and thrice repeated cheer hailed the new Comer. The Quick step of a clanging Boot and pour on the pavement followed the crowd opened and in the Ner and Daiker than he was wont to look of Yore but Linfuh Fife and strength Henry fit Osborne stood alone but resolved and dauntless. The face of Evelyn was Crimson and she clasped both her hands upon Jer heart As if to quell its throbbing but she spake not a word then Norman Mertoun foreseeing what was about to come repeated the solemn words he had just uttered but now with a Peculiar emphasis that made every bosom thrill which was within the reach of any human feeling. Then doffing his plumed hat with his left hand and stepping one full pice Forward into the body of the Church Henry fit Osborne lifted his right toward heaven and exclaimed solemnly and in the name of the most High god 1 forbid it she is my wife before god and before Man such i claim there was a moment of strange confusion voices were raised angrily and hands Laid upon sword Hilts among the Youthful partisans of either now that Henry stood Alne in the Centre of his neighbors be lacked nol Many and staunch the loud words of the old baronet commanding the priest to proceed with the service for that the interruption was of no account and vain overpowered All the teat. But at that instant As silence wag restored shaking off All her Mardenly fears Evelyn step Ped a Kettle Forward from her Bride Maidens and said clearly to that All could Bear it needs a Sar How that which a All events i should have said a for minutes later i will nol have lord air ctr Mildt Tay for m three years Emce to this Man Henry Fitzios borne As his Wile and if he hold to me Hirn will i have and none other. At the same instant Henry fit Osborne stood Forward from the door Broadsword clanging Ourthe pavement and now for the first time All present observed that he were a foreign uniform and the lord Andrew Mildmay bowing deeply to the lady turned on his Heel and moved As if to leave the Church. But then Walter de Lack Ned out anon my lord Ray lord what mean Yon will you do my daughter this Dishonour to leave her standing at the altar replied he not appearing to Reli Fli the idea of a contest with Fitz Laboroe "1 think the lady has left me and it comports not with my dignity to press a suit on an unwilling and without another word he departed from the Church followed by his friends and taking his horse Rode Eul Lynly away to his father s Castle. A Long conv creation Fol owed m the same study of the Small vicarage wherein Evelyn s morning visit had been paid Louie Good priest and by he Means it was chiefly aided it must by confessed by the disclosure of strange things which were falling out in England that the old baronet consented to the Celebration of his daughter s Nap Hals on the same Day with the same bridal train in the same nuptial garb with no change in a word but that of the bridegroom s name to her old True love Brave and Good Henry Fitzios edme. Scarce had they left the Church when the sheriff of the county escorted by a troop of Dalch dragoons and followed by the Flower of the noblemen and gentlemen of Kent Rode upon the Village Green and proclaimed James these cond having abdicated the throne William the third and Mary by the Grace of god King and Queen of great Britain.
