Such ye?e the words which theele-

came the sound that preceded the
echo.? Enter softly lest we disturb

language of the heart, belays what
the twilight's darkening gloom tries
to conceal. We start ! Seated before
a richly carved rosewood piano, her
head bowed as if -by some impending
trouble, we see Pyditli Lacv. Rocked
in the cradle of luxury; blessed by the
gifts which Fortune drops as the wheel
of Ti;hie revolves, do we wonder that
we find her as she is ? 2o, not as to
the distinguished air which lingers
around even the folds of hey dark
velvet robe, but as those dewy tears
which glisten in eyes far more pie-rev

darts. Hark, the door bell peals!
How quick-she starts, but the lopk

rests the hpad and the lips half mur

to make her sentence audible to Paul
Raymond, who has since- his father's
death resided in the family of Esmond
Lacy. His position in the family is
pne formed by the closest business ties;
his father being, during his life, part
ner in the firm of Lacy.
Paul Raymond was tall and com
manding in appearance, with a brow
shaded by dark chestnut curls, a
mustache over lips and teeth perfect
ly suited to make him, as he seemed
to out IJditlf, an unequaled Apollo.

Two years had passed since the de
parture of the gallant bark "Elsie."
Six months aftej the night of her be
trothal, Edith was gladdened by tire
receipt of a white-winged messenger
of loye from Paul. A letter such as
only the noble man in whose keeping
her heart's pearls, almost totajly un
awares to Tier, had found their way,
could write. A letter so hopeful,.
cheerful and loving, so beautifully
and vividly picturing their future that
U.ipheal would, on reading, have been
tempted to give his pencil a depreca
tory hurl and a farewell benediction
of "Depart ye, useless rubbish, since
lovo has ceased to color your work ye
are become as your master old and
good for nothing."
fimc's tireless pinion had swept an
other almost endless six. months be
hind him, and Edith, while casually
passing through her" father's studio,
glanced at a paper which seemed as if
waiting for her perusal. Why did
her eyes search first the columns of
marine news down past the A!s, B's,
C's, D's but why that deadly pallor?
One wild shriek, and she falls, but
into the arms of licr father, who en

to restore light to those brilliant eyes,

Gradually Edith appeared among
ker old associates, but like the mag
nolia shows the touch of the human
hand, she-bore the impress of orroW,
though endeavoring to conceal from the
world her heart's best treasure. SuU

A SiD STORY OF THE' YEL
LQWFEYER. A few evenings ago a welhdressed
girl baby; one year old, was left on
Jthe doorsteps of Mr. Newcomb, of
Providence, L and , by its side a
letter, in whie.b the heart-broken moth
er who had left it there stated that
she had lost her father, mother, broth
&X, husband and three children by
yellow fever in New Orleans, and that
she fled to Cairo to escape the plague,
with her baby; that botl were attack
ed with the fever in that place and
recovered, though the writer felt as
though she was losiug her memory,
and no doubt would soon be a raving
maniac. She urged tjieui not to look
her up, as she was going to New York
on the midnight train, "there to die
unknown," and gave instructions for
the care of the child. She signed her
self Mrs. Josie Hall. Mr. Newcomb
Was great'y affected, for he had knowi
the lady's family, who, he said sto'od
high in the South, Mrs. Hall being a
beautiful and accomplished lady. Two
days after a telegram was received by
AJr. Newcomb from Boston, stating
that Mrs. Hall was in a dying condi
tion at a hotel in that city. He im
mediately started for Boston, and ar
rived in reason to receive the dying
woman's instructions. She begged
him to be good, to her child and to
send her body to New Orleans for in
terment. She left some money to pay
her funeral expenses, and also some
for the cre of the child. The remains
were forwarded to New Orleaus. A
letter received from the latter city
throws some additional light on the
sad affair. Mrs. Hall, it appears,
while deranged with grief, had fled
from the city in her father's carriage,
accompanied by the faithful coach
man, and went to Cairo, where the
coachman died. After her arrival
there her uncle and aunt ajso died,
She immediately left Cairo and fled
North. The babe will be tenderly

THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO
Tlve Rev. Dr. Talmadge of Brook
Jyn, recently visited (atuight) many
of the low dance houses and sinks of
perdition iu New York City, in com
pany with Policeman, for the purpose
of observing the frequenters of such
places and how they behaved. He has
been giving horrible accounts of what
he saw,jnd on Sunday last spoke as
follows in his Church iu Brooklyn
"Standing within these pavilions of
death, I was as much surprisedjat tba.
people whom J missed as at those
whom I saw. There was one class of
persons that I missed. I looked for
them up and down the galleries and
amid the illuminated gardens and the
scenes of death, I saw not one of
them. I mean the hard workinjr cla&
ses the laboring classes of our great
cities. Applause. You tell me they
could not afford to go there. They
could entrance tor women, nothing;
entrance for men, tweutyftv cents..
Laughter. Hard work is the friend
of good morals. Men who have toil
ed from morning till night, are glad
to sit down and rest or go to some
quite place of amusement where they
are not ashamed to take their wives
and daughters. The places of dissi
pation are chiefly supported by those
who begin buisness at 9 or 10 o'clock
and go away at '3 or 4 in the after
noon. They have plenty of time to
go to destruction in, and plenty of
money to buy a through tipket on the
grand trunk railroad to perdition,
stopping at no depot till they come to
the eternal smash-up.. The most for
tunate and divinely blessed young
men arp not thqsp who have breakfast
early and supper late, and have a
pocket case full of the best cigars, and
dine at Delmorjico's and dress in tip
top fashion, and have their hat set

ter and who have boots of most ex
quisite torture fitting the foot, an$
who have handkerchiefs soaked with
musk, and patchouly, and white rose,
and new moan hay and balm of a
thousand flowers. Laughter. There
is no chance for the morals of that
young man who has plenty of money
and no occupation Those are the fort
unate young inpn who have to work
hard for a living. You do not fiijd
them in these places of iniquity. Qivp
a young man plenty of wine, and plen
ty of cigars and plenty of fine horses,
and Satan has no anxiety about that
man's cominsr out at his ulace. He
ceases to watch him, only giving di
rections about his reception when he

Apples jox Europe.
The- export of apples this year
promises to be the largest ever known.
The apple crop is enormous; the qual

low enough to give excellent promise
of profit in foreigU markets. The
Boston correspondent of the New Yfk
Bulletin says that already some vessels
have taken as many as 3,000 barrels,
but the "Canopus " of the Warren
Line, which sailed October 16, took
5,000 barrels, which is the largest
cargo yet, and, as near as he can find

they kiss and make it up ; the wound apr
