Alas for Man s Van Ity if it was thus their is but one thing More powerful and that is woman s Pride it was a strange Caprice but that night when she retired to her own apartment the girl sought the rude Cas Ket which contained her Little dowry and smiled As she clasped the bracelets of massive Gold upon her slender and braided her dark hair with gems of no mean value. It might have been at her own Radiant Beauty and yet that needed no mix Pricious ornament to in crease its Lustre or she was recalling to mind perchance the night when she wore to Lippi last and How Many had said that the Potter s daughter of Corinth Shou d have been a Queen. And one but no matter n hat his words Weie now since he Loo Lias forgotten presently As though the whim had i passed away Corintha a clasped the i bracelets from her Aims kissed them passionately for they were a dead Mother s legacy and replacing them in the casket actin a to test.

Presently the door opened quickly and a fair gentle Yeti girl stood Ling Erin Gly on the Asil half afraid to enter. Corintha turned Pale and trembled too hut it was for a moment and than she came formed smilingly and spoke to the Young stranger in her kind Sweet voice we should know one another i said she. You Aie the beloved of my i on and i the daughter of Dib Tades and his Eai Lic St yes he often Speaks of you and Many an hour have i and watched for 3 of to go , that i might Sre in you were As Beautiful As he described.

The Olu Man Casl a searching look upon this and so Earnest As his scrutiny that length and asked by Lully of could be thinking. I Lulu been said Dibua but it is All past now and you Nius be very kind to Myron if he should come to make up or my harsh Ness. After All there Wasno harm and Why were you harsh to poor Myron father asked the girl coax singly. Because because i thought that you and not this Young Lone should have been his betrothed or Why for years a he been like your very Shadow and i feared Pardon me my child that you might have Felt this what love unasked replied the Maiden with a proud smile upon her. Quivering lips. Me thinks in it were Bijj Malul. It May he so and yet it is hard to t link that even in All be Well in the end in glorious Sunshine four youth will ave passed never to return i in worse still that in the interval death or change May Render vain the labor of Alf a Hie i nay i will have no said a Orintha she will be yours and sooner perhaps than you think for or if it l e otherwise never grow old or change or once Loving cease to love a jollies while life remains. I have no Lehew id the word that greek girl s was a Sweet Creed in Zotigh somewhat wild and Savouring with few exc up the Young to this a. But Lone is not like replied or companion. She is gentle and Ealy persuaded a a but the child when she loves be c Jmes a woman Myron she will r Mako All the better wife far it special r to you who do love your own Way Hale. I had almost forgotten that i n keeping you from her now but Bijou will come again soon and Tell me i of you the greek promised and amidst All slightly of idolatry Jons it is that of is fears for the future left her with get heart. Perhaps had fancied himself the stately Beauty of the Pooi have blessed with his affect that is the very thing. How had loved you instead he be been much and the girl bowed Down her head upon her can you a i wish h would in hands an i wept. This is a fearful jest said Corin but the Pale face of Lone heed her for the thought and Flag her arms care singly around her Ticy mingled their tears together. Ii ova kind of you to feel thus for one who is almost a stranger to to claimed the girl at length but 1 knew i was sure it would be so he always said How Good and compassion ate you but you have not yet told me what brought you interrupted her companion somewhat impatiently. What but my fears for birr for Myron who is lost if you Aid me not. You alone can save him i know replied Corintha and have already done a and lie consents lie will yield me up the he thanked although i cart not How Boon they take me to themselves what strange mystery is asked her companion with while and quivering lips. You so Young so loved and yet wish for death did i it was a sinful thought. I knew not what i said. And Jet in is better to die than live alone in the world far exclaimed Corintha eagerly. But your mind wanders my poor child this great Joy has been too much for yes it is Joy to know that i have emancipated him from the weary Bond ago that was consuming his Young life hour by hour. That after a Lime he May be Happy he May even love again. Andret the Triumph after All was not wholly mine. Last night when they thought i slept i stole out Olathe House and went guided by the lamp which May be seen of late burning even in Lill the Dawn to Myron s workshop. Yon think perhaps it was scarcely Mardenly but was it not for me he toiled thus Early and late and yet i trembled and half feared to enter. But i took courage it last and wondering that he never raised hit head crept up to him and pressed my lips timidly to his faded brow. I Lud not dared to do this but i thought he slept and How surprised and pleased he would feel to be awakened thus. Surely Corintha his untiring Devotion deserved this slight Reward go said her companion in a Low voice. He did not chide thee doubtless neither will no for he was Pale and cold As Marble and never stirred he had fainted a Way through exhaustion and As i Hung frail Mically Over him the w Hole Ruth burst at once upon my mind was literally by inst Inch by Inch for me it was in vain to think that my father would Abate one Iota of his demands Ever since i can remember he has made in his proudest boast never to go Back from his word. But one Way remained by which he might be saved and though my own happiness was to be the sacrifice i did not shrink from it. And yet i was but a bad pleader for i Clung to him even while i Supplicate upon my Knees that he would yield me up and while my lips prayed him to renounce and forget me my heart drank in with a wild and Sel fish Joy every burning and passionate vow. Perhaps he saw the struggle for he o Fly smiled called Rne a fond foolish child who knew not what i asked and after see Ina. Me to my Back with his thin hollow checks and feeble step to toil again As he had months until and then in my despair i remembered you ail came hither to ask your Aid for i Well knew the value he Al ways sat upon your and now that All is Over and you have lost him forever can you still re Joice a yes for he will rest to night first Lime for and soon be quite Well again for t key Tell me it is re to Only he but yourself Lone no matter for said the girl let us think Only of him and this was women s love in those ancient . Is it less pure less self Sacii ii ing even to this Day i we think not. May i come and see you some asked Lone care singly As they parted at length. It would be such happiness when we Are quite alone if i might talk occasionally of him whom we both a old you thai girl exclaimed her companion wildly. Nay is it not so True he was not your betrothed but there Are Many kinds of you Are right Rny Sweet Lone said Cerintha kissing her fondly. My love for Myron is not like the Young girl turned away with a smile upon her White lips but she was no heroine and when she reached Home she Flung herself Down upon the ground and wept in passionate abandonment of grief while the daughter of Dib Tades returned quietly to her work. It is murmured she Lone is worthy of him for the first time for Many weeks Myron came that night a of old. But inc Potler was still Busy in his shop and Corintha from Home her re however being momentarily expected he sat Down to await it and weary and exhausted fell Fajt asleep. Although Pale and worn and hollow eyed with much toil his features even in slumber had a Bright and Happy expression and once or twice he smiled As if his dreams were pleasant it was Long since he had slept thus soundly even Corintha s return failed to awaken him or the burning tears which fell upon his brow As she Bent Over him. Was she weeping to see How changed he had become or did the vision of poor Lone and her Lover in his lonely workshop come sadly Back to her heart As the Young greek slum he red thus his Fine and strongly marked profile was distinctly reflected on the Wall of be Corintha perceiving it sketched the outline in charcoal ii Lapid hand and then turning laughingly to her father who had just e entered asked him if it was not an Excel Lent likeness. Myron awoke at the sound of her glad voice. One moment exclaimed she i i not caught the very curve of that proud it is admirable said Dib Tades and even Myron smiled at ibis rude sketch of himself for he could now. Some unknown Friend had sent him the very sum required by the Iron he red father of Lone who had now no longer any excuse for delaying their nuptials or the Gill concealing her deep and passionate tenderness. Per laps they were All the happier for the Arief Cloud which had darkened Over the Sunshine of their lives since it had aught them How dear they were to each other. I and can you form no guess As to whom you Are indebted for Thiis great kindness Dib Tades. None i believe it to be the act of the gods themselves in pity to the prayers and tears of my poor such things have replied the old Potter with solemn earnestness. But his daughter seemed less superstitious for she smiled a and spoke on other topics. But the Young pen can Hope to do Justice to her feelings when she found that the sacrifice would not be demanded of that she was free to love him again and More than All to let him see that she did and had Only to nurse him Back to health. And need would have died for him without her Fate been a singular one for it is with some few rare exceptions the common doom of womanhood. In the innocent Joy of her heart she went Early the following morning to Tell the Good news to her kind Friend Corintha and ask an explanation of much that had puzzled her in their 1-.- interview but the door was Laste cd and As her gentle request for admit Lince failed to elicit any reply she concluded that she must be out. Such however was not the Case the dauger of debt Glades was too Busy to be disturbed and would not perhaps that every one see the nature of occupation. She was moulding ,1 figure in Clay from the rude sketch Ectore her and it Vas wonderful the Genius she displayed in this strange employ ment. She sat thus cd or since by break but she put it away when eve Ning came and the following morning wot ked at it again until the statue was finished when she carried it smilingly to her father who Priis Jed her ingenuity and put it in his Furnace to Harden. The wedding passed away As most weddings do even to Day. The Bride in her love half wondering what she could have done to Merit so much happiness and vowing in the Depths of her Young heart to repay it with n life s Devotion inc Maidens half envious half hopeful that their turn might come soon and the aged Livi g Asil were Over again their Youthful Days with the loved and lost restored by the magic Power of memory and Tion. But the and brightest even than Llie Bride her self in All the Grace of her winning and child like the to Ter s daughter of Corinth. And it was strange Loo fur her night Black hair was unrelieved by a single ornament and her White arms Rich Only in their own faultless symmetry while in was usual on such occasions to display those treasures which were the Pride of the Maidens of Greece. Dib Tades spoke of it to his child. Nay my replied Corintha Ding Down the dance. It misfit have been observed that she never wore her ornaments again.
