With a gentle courtesy and modesty, ba waa yet manly aad digoifled vhea oecaslon reqalred. ‘I was tber, like yourteif, an heirecs, petted end courted, and retliy believing in my own beait that I was little above the rest of humanity in virtue of my pratty fage, my aecomplishmoLti and my weH-niled purse. 'I had Mtitois and friends, aod I flirted away tbeir respect in more tbao one cue. 'It gave me a pleasaot seose of power to lead my lovett ofi to a proptMl, and then mortify their vanity and crus^ their hopes by a refusal. A poltry ambition that brought its punishment, for it wits not many weeks after I met him that I found I loved George Hulmea with all tbe stresgtb of my besrt. He never flittered me, yet a word or look ef appruval from him wonid please me aa no honeyed speech had ever done before. He waa respectful to me as a woman, but never paid aabservient homage to my poaltion and wealth. I think be knew that I was not all the vaiv butterfly of fashion othera believed me, and tbe thought of this roused all that was true in my nature. In bis presence I dropped my vanity and coquotry, and tried to meet his owQ mental powers, and pure, high- toned converMtion, Ha taojbt me aome of the dviight a knowledgo of art gifea to the aigiit of a flue painting or piece of sculpture. He trained my eyw for me till every flower, every suaset, esery sight ia na ture acquired a new beauty. ‘He guided me through higher walks of literatare than I bad attempted alone He loved me and be won my love. Tet, during all tbe months of Inter- coarse that bound our hurts together, Ororee had never uld to me: *I lovf you,’ and sure as I felt of his aflfection, I kept my own love hidden till aome word uf hw gate age the gwarantce lo apeak. It was not eoquetrf that kept me •*- lent, Ethel, bnt the modesty of true, pure love. 'We had come t£ town for the win ter, and I met Genrge H.ilmes coo- 8taiitly, at home and abroad, when my Uncle and guardian told me that the young artist bad been offered n roost desirable and lucrative commission fur a psl'.tiiig that would require bl« to go to Italy for two, perhaps three years. I was sore he would speak then. It could not be that he would leavo home fur yoars, and give me no word of luve at parting. Wo were preparing for a large party at home when the servant handed me a bouquet of tea rosea with Mr, Holmes’ coniijlimetits. [ iovud tea roses then, E^hel, and the creamy, half opened buds, the bright leaves, the deep-tinted hearts of the open fliiwcrs, all scorned smiling hope on me, as I sat in my room lubaling their perfume, and thiuhing of tiie gWer. It seemed to me a promise of all I hoped and wishsd, that I should receive the lovely gift and nmid my tender thoughts, I resolred'to drop all my care less mnnnei's, all my flirting,* heartless tricks, when I was alsured this aoble, true heart was all my own. Never was I more caieful of my drnss than OQ tbe evening of tbe party , to which i referred. 'My chnlceit jiiweis, mv richest silk, did duty fur that occasion, and I dressed my hair as George liked it best, and «ore tiie ebldr he thaught Ibcr ntpit be- coniiiig.

There are fortyna-bunters, I know, who will woo any rich girl, but they need not gain tbe triumph nf de basing your heart by leading you through the msiea of a flirtation. Qjiet dignity will toon teach thea tbeir hopes are io vain. 'Yet, if a true heart it in your grasp, do not play with It.
