And then I rose, pale and faeirt-sick to say goud-night. “We have not bid oiir uiuil talk to- light, Birdie?” he said. ‘Nil,’* 1 intwered laconicilly. ‘It ll loo late DOW,” luuking at his watch. “jres." “What it tha matter?” asked my aunt; “Are you unwell?” ••No," again.

Then, when we bsd reoched the fVont-door, and I held up my lips for tbe usasl icisi, h« said, “She is very chsrming, but my baby is worth ten of her.” 'Oh I” I sobbsd, throwing myself into bis arms, and clinging to him with pauionate palo and sorrow, ' do not say so, I am a woman now—a woman.

B>it breaking from bim, I ran upstairs, ind shut mytelf in atf room. What could I do? NflilMng. I felt tbit be ini daily, hourly being drawn away from me, and my weaii power could avail nothing against the more subtile will of that nider and far superior woman of tbe world. Mt mother,_ ah, but not even to her could I complain of Rlwyn. And so tiia days went on. One afternoon, io tbe early autumn, I went down tu the shore alone, titling listieM and idle, though wearily. At last, voices dbtarbed me, voices chat I knew only too well—his and b«rs-and I suld tu listen.

This much I could aud would do for bim. That evening I isked him to wilk down the avenue with me, for tha list time, and then I slid, “KIwyn, thii must end between ue. I will oot mirry you ” It wat a ttrangn Hart he gave—a itrange look, almost of j.iy, that flashed over his face, only tu be gone again. And then I gaini-d strength tu tall tba faUehood, that was to set him free. “I do not love you, Uiwyn.” It is needless to repest bis hurried words nf qiiestion and confused ramor.. strsr.c*. liiit I saw that he believed my love was gone from bim, and tharoia 1 could be thahklul.

Msny a mother hit wept over the sins of ber child, liula dreiming that while she pursued her round of Idle plessure.*, (hit clillil was Inking its first lesson in sin from the example of a viciout nurse. The truib is. parents take upon themselves too many unnecessary bur dens, and consider themseWes bound by duty to perfiirns ton many tarkv, which art of much leis consequence than the ti aching aod training of their children. Tbe fsther has bis trade or proression, and hit few leisure hours he must spend I* social pleasures. The mother hss ber household cares, and tha cnml'orls of har family to atudy; and besides this there is much time to be devoted to fancy work, visitorf, and to nmusements of one kind and another. Her children are n.ere secondary considerations, ond di‘peod upon tha kindness of hirelings. Their dresses may be miracles of puffing, riifiliog and embroidery, but wliat does that count wheo their minds are dwarfed through neglect f Her bouse may be the model Ilf oeatacst, h*r bread excel that of *11 her neighbors, ber Jellies and pre serve* eoough tn t*mpt the most fastid ious; but if iu all this she ha* kapt aloof from her child, has chilled his heart to wardt ber, wbat does It count? MEOFfiW WOMIT Some men use words it rifiemen do bullets. They esy but little. Tbe few Words go right to the mirk. They let you talk, and guide your fact and ayet oil and on, till- wbat yon tav can be an swered Io a word or two. and than they launch out a sentence, pierce the matter tu the quick, and sre dona. Your con versation falls into their miods as a stream into a deep chasm, and I* lost from tigh by its depth and darkness. Tbay will anmetin.et surprise you with a few words that go to the mark like a gun-shot, aod then they are tilent sgiin, as if they were reloading. Such men ere tafe coonaelon aad true friendt, where they profest to be tuch. To tbem truth it mnrt valaable than gold, while preteotion Is too giudy to deceive them. Word* without point to them ire like titles without merit—nnly be traying tbd weakaem of the blind dup* who are ever used to foraard otb*r men'* tchemca. WHAt lECOMEt OF TNC Ittnil- MIU.
