"I am so tired of it.all,:" said Addie
Cliligrove. -
The little wooden clock on the
mantel had just struck eight ; the
lire in the cylinder stove, giowed
with a red, comlortable retiection.
Mrs. Clitfgrovc had gone down to
issue orders to the kitchen depart
ment, 'relative to the morrow's
breakfast, and Addie was all alone
l 1.
jwith a pile of invalided household
1 men, a package of unmcn.ded stock
ings, and a work-basket well supplied
Svitli ail the necessary implements -ol '
'needle' craft. And this was to be
the occupation of her elegant leisure.
Alas, poor Addie!
. Shenvas a pretty girl, rather be
ow than above the medium height,
you sec in the "flowing blue" china
f our grandmothers' days, sunny
tirown hair, streaked here and there
with reddish gold, and a round face,
where red lips and dimples and shy
j-oses made up a, distracting confu
sion to thd eye masculine. And her
hands were white and soft, and lier
waist alight and trim, and she wore
a number two and a half f shoe, and
altogether would have been 'phrased
a beauty, had she only been fortunate
enough to live in Fifth Avenue, in
stead of being the daughter of Mrs.
Cliffgi'ove, who "took boarders," and
was . oftentimes sorely troubled to
make both ends meet I
Four little brothers and three
little sisters to make and mend for,
to wash the faces and brush' the
jocks 'of, fluid sec duly packed off for
school every day dyed dresses,
three-winter-old bonnets, and gloves
bo shabby that she Was fain to hold
her hands folded within her shawl
whenever she went out, and a tread
mill round of daily labor more wea
risome than the constant dropping
which is said to wear the hardest
stone away this was the epitome of
Addie's life, and for a girl of eighteen,
there is no denying that i wasvery
hard. Ami Addie wondered, some
times, if the blessed gate's of relief
would never open to licr faltering
footsteps ! - ' "
I To be sure, t here was J ohn Torrey,
who had the little hall bedroom in
the third story back, and was. ? clerk
in Messrs. Cash & Bullion's banking
establishment John Torrey, with
the clear hazel eyes ami the merry
riiifih voice, who had told her only
yesterday that he loved her, and
would fain make her his wife! But
lie was not rich, a.d had only his sal
ary :o depend upon, and Addie had
always dreamed that her pretty fate
misrht "win her a ifiore important
prize in the matrimonial lottery than
ar mere bankers clerk ! She did not
want to toil and work on forever,
and. where would be the relief if she
married John Torrey?
) Yet she liked him a little too, oij
she had thought she did, before Mr.
Carew came to the boarding-house
treasured tip, . and
given her ";a Phiiopena present of a
turquoise brtxr.h, the prettiest '''thing
she had ever seen. And they had
been talking only the evening before
a s h o b ro u gj it her f 6 m e i'tu m h V
promenade concert at the Academy
of Music, and she was quite su re ' he
meant that he loved her. Of co'ur.so.
he was very rich, for he wore' dia
monds and superfine broadcloth, and
talked about hts country-seat on the
Hudson, and his yacht and his racer
horses, until Addies simple eyes
with surprise and

Alas for poor John Torrey ! His
heart .would have sunk into the soles
of his boWs, had he but known how
slender HvereJiis chances, compared
with thrtse of his dashing rival ! Jiut
ignorance is bliss, at least so , says
the old proverb, and Mr. Torrey's
face was as bright as ever when lie
came into the little parlor where
Addie sat darning table-cloths.
"It rains pretty hard, eh ?" said
John, rubbing ;his .hands before 'the
fire. "No church -lecture for us. 10-
