Julit s beauty enthralled him, and he !•.fisted her with all inmgiiiary good qualities. If he had been told by a woman th.it she was henrtleas and selfi-ih he would have scouted the idea, attributing it solely to envy,for wus not hi r beauty be- witchii'g? and tho glances of her dark eyes were they not brimful of soul? Harold passionately loved music, and Mary was fortu.iote enough to possess a fine contralto voiec, upon which she bad bestowed much culture. Wben she sano, as she often did without needless urgi g, he would close his eyes and Iste , cliariued; bat when the molody cea-ed, and he had opened then) ogain, it would be, pathaps, to see Julie’s handsome Greek face, with the lustions, uiBguetic eyes gaz'ng at hitn. yi!3;thc young fellow was [luzzled ahith t J cho'ost. For allbuiigh he had visited tho villa to please bis frisnds, without other apparent objn.'.t, ho was bcginniog to lire of his aiiuleu, l incly balcheKir lilo. Perhaps he thought that ono oftheaa young girts would make au excellent wife. Julie had encouraged bis atten tions, and of coursehe had no auspiciou that shu was already engaged ; but Mury avoided him. It was evident tliat she, at least, was not trying to coax him into matrimony. Harold was terribly afraid of being taken fur those tempting mil- lions. The conversation he bad accidently overbeard, however, had eolightoned biiD IS to the true character of tbo two young ladies. And now he was sur prised that he had been so blind. Sarely iutelligence beamed from Mary's eyes, and her pretty face was as sini.’ere ns her mnoncrs were artless. Ilfl now knew that sho had a beautiful soul wuithy of all confidence. Slie had confessed lo admiration; but that was q'lito dift'orent from a toiidi'r passion. O.iuld he win her lovu? This was tho important question, and str.iiige to s:iy, hu Has really anxious up >n this point, and hu detenui'ied to decide tho idttttcr at once.
