magnificent woman of the world ?
"True,'Giles ever feature is hers,

you that I am not in lovsjjwith this

Walter again returned to his lady
friend, 'who had not before failed to
make herself entertaining but when
next he was with her, despite her ef

and moody: Never had Sadie looked

you do not know Sadie Grosvenor?r
Half ihe men in New York City are
crazy about her, and now that she has
left school, her numbers of admirers
will be doubled, You must know Sa
die, and to -night, she is indeed a beau
ty in form, and face, but her purity
and goodness of heart far excel her;
other charms. We are not friends in
the common acceptation of the word,
but there exists between us a strong
true friendship. Come let me intro
duce you ; this is joy indeed-"
Walter is almo.t by her side, near
enough to touch her dress. Too late,
her little hand is placed on the arm of
another and she is gone', he is quite
over come. But hear Gertie's cheering
words : ; 1
To-morrow she will attend a par
ty at.my home, you can see her there,
she is quite pleasant, and I promise
you a delightful evening in her go

" Thank you Gertie, I will be with
you at the appointed time, and will
with your permission bring a friend, a
stranger in the city you will be pleas

"By all means bring him," said
Gertie. With which remark they part,
Walter soon found Giles, and with
him returned to his room.
" Walter old fellow, your search
vas in vain. What encouragement
did your friend give you? by the way
she is almost a3 lcyely as what is her
" Sadie." .v

Sarah I've no doubt ; but what's in a
name? To return to Miss Saunders,
she is I think my ideal of a woman'

becorce wild about them. However,

her that we would be with her to-inor-irow
evening. She will entertain com
pany, and there she says I will meet
My advice to you old fellow, is to
stop building air castles or they may
tumble. She may even now be the
affiattced of another," said Giles.
" Have a cigar?" ' ' '
After a pleasant i conversation the
two retired. 1
The morning danwed bright, the sun
was shining, in all its splondor, when
Sadie awoke. She arose immediately
regretting having slept so late.on this
her first morning of perfect freedom.
The first thing upon which her eyes
rested was a case of some rich wood,"
on raising the lid she found it to con
tain a set of pearls. Uncle Ralph's
" Dear kind uncle," knowing I was
to enter society, he has given me every
thing I could desire. Look at the su
perb outfit just .arrived from Pari,
two days since, j Can I thank him suf
ficiently. In making him happy I
shall bp cockented, ' These pearh will
be beautiful to-night at Gertie's party.
I thinlf of it now, Gertie had a stran.
ger with her last night, who could it
have been ? ho was so ' like I'll say
it not. The image of that man is al
most indelibly stamped on my heart.
I must overcome it. What would
mother, father and uncle Ralph say ?
They shall never know it.
A short time elapsed, and Sadie was
in her uncle's handsome, suit of brooms;"
receiving visitors r.nd making a hos
tess worthy of imitation. And when
the evening arrived sh was exhausted
and would have rested, but feared that
whelf her toilette for the evening was
complete, she would be late?- She rang
for her maid and in less time than
usual she was ready, and with ter Un
cle as escort, reached Mr. Saunders in
due time, When Sidie on her uncle's
arm swept regally into the room, a
murmur of admiration greeted her
frijnds were pressing round her, when

one to relieve her of the crowd, offered
his arm and found a pleasant seat hear
Iho window, but other eyes had seen
her as she appeared at the door of the
drawing room, and followed her to her
resting place, ho also moved so near
that he could hear the low, soft tones
of Sadie's voice, and could see the blue
eyes raised with pleased interest to her
companion's face, and could watch the
faint smile deepen till a little dimple
stole into each fair cheek of the loyely
He could stand itno longer and left
in search of Gertie, whom he met, at
the door in company with Giles, who
was thus soon, as he confidentially con
fessed to Walter, ' heels over head in
"Why old boy," said Giles, "you are
as pale as a ghost, have you been
frightened? Not one word, I see the
cause of it all now!. Miss Saunders will
you place me under everlasting obliga
gations to yourself by taking my friend
and introduced him to the lady near
the windo w, but with a promise that
you w 11 not remain after It is over ?'
"It is Sadie, certainly, Come Mr.
Rowland." j "Luck attend you," said
Giles, aa they mpved on. The introduc
tion was over, their eyes met, Sadie's
face was of marble whiteness, and the
next moment, her eyes fell beneath
his gaze, Walter's ; tongue was paral
ysed, but he soon regained his usual
composure, He talked well and bril
liantly, for the young man's soul was
looking out at his eyes, and j Sadie
studied it as an open book; sheifound
it all nobleness and truth, she had
been called as beautiful as an angei
and csld as snow. The beaming blue
eyes melted, under his magnetic
influence. Several hours passed pleas
antly by, all things must end Gerties
guests were all gone, Sadie the last,
was handed to the carriage by Walter
with an engagement for the next even
ing at her own home. ; r
Walter was with Sadie the next
evening, and again thenexj;, until their
friendship, the world said was fast
ripening into love, and: Giles said he
was fascinated, chained hand and foot,
and he never saw a more willing slave,
but both had learned' th it their heart
had been each others long ago.
Sadie found Waiter all that she had
pictured him. and he thought her an
angel, but not a word of love had been
spoken. Walter mast speak, he had
known her long enough to lay his 'hand
and heart' at her feet.
After a pleasant drive one afternoon
as Walter was leaving Sadie at the
door, he said he would call again that
evening. He could live ia suspend
no longer, he would know his fate.
Had she not encouraged him, he could
not believe her a coquette. If she re"
fused him the future was a blank5. "
Walter and Sadie were in the par
lor alone, we will look at them. Sadie
wears a blue silk of richest lustre, on
her neck and arms gleam pearls, a fall
of costly lace, gives a softness to the
entire dress. At her feet pleading his
cause in the most impassioned language
is Waller giving her a strong, deep
love that few men can give. Does
Sadie receive it with scorn and indif
ference. She gives him her hand and
bids him rise.
" My heart is yours Walter and has
ever been. It is too sacred now for
All is in readiness, the bridal party
have returned from the Church, the
Satin, laces and flowers are thrown
aside, for Sadie has changed the bridal
robe for her traveling dress. Mother
and Father were . vrith Sadie, but
Uncle Ralph gave the bride away.
Gertie was there with Giles, they had
returned from their wedding tour in
time to attend the nuptials! The
farewells are over. Walter and lib
bride are gone, but in three months
they will return to take possession of
their magnifieent residence. Ralph Grot

into a garden of bloom; the humblest

roundest gloom into au empyrean of

leading to Heaven; but without which

whom is reserved the blackness of dark

"the everlasting arms'' waiting, more
ready to redeem a lost, ruined world
than it is willing to be redeemed.
