quick fingers." She was alone as far
as human society was concerned; but
the birds flew so close to her, and the
grasshoppers chirped so loudly, that
all feeling of solitude was banished.
Presently; another sound was added
a footstep; and then aj gentleman ap
peared. He stopped before the jirl,
and raising his hat, said : j
"I beg pardon, but may I ask if
Mrs.-Mortmain is at home?"
The girl turned her intense eyed to
wards the sound, and replied j
'No sir. She went to drive, and
YllMiot return till dinner. Will you
wait for her?'
'Thank you, yes he answered.?
She arose to lead the way to the
house, but he stopped her.
'Pardon me, but if you will permit
me, l would rather waityhere till mv

looked atjiim questioningly. 'Then

He bowed. 'The same at your .ser

Miss Leigh?' i r
'Indeed you are giving me honor
to which I liave uo right." My cousin
Laura went with aunt to drive. ;My
name is Page ; a strange one to yotij is
it not?'
'It is ; but I hope it will not be so
long.
It seems my aunt has prepared
a double pleasure for me.' He stop
ped abrnpty as he saw Miss Page slow
ly extend her hand before her till it
touched the chair she had just risen
from, and then passed it quickly over
it, before she sat down. Too well
bred to. show his surprise, he took an
other scat and was silent till site siad;
'Aunt will be very sorry sh was
not here to welcome you. Mr. Mort
main, but she did not expect y oil till
to-morrow.'
'Yes, that was the day I appointed,
I believe; but my friends tell me that
I never kept an appointment in my
life.'
A ball of worsted fell from her lap
and rolled to his feet. He picked it
up and handed it to her. Her: eyes
were looking steadily at him, but she
rdid not notice the wool.
He drew it
back, and said :
'Thank you, I will keep it in mem
ory of our meeting And without
waiting for her to reply, he continued:
lo what luckv chance am ;i in-
debted for this pleasure, Miss" Page?
How could you be indifferent to the
charms of a drive this delightful af
ternoon?'
A quick spasm of "pain passed over
her face, and then she replied :

.Lucy Page. W ho was she? His
aunt's niece, he knew;. but he had
never heard her name before. Laura's
praise had been chanted to him ever
since she hd t graduated from pina
fores, and he knew that he was ex
pected, in the end, to dutifully fall
in love with her and marry her. But
Lucy ! Her story was as sealed to
him as the sunlight was to her sight-
less eyes ! So deep, so searching, and
yet so soft. Could it be that all was
black to them? Great heavens ! it was
terrible. And that evening, after list- i
ening faithfully for an hour to LaU-
ra's sweetest songs and Laura's most : me, and I thought I would try to ex

side to ask about Lucv.
'Lucy? Yes, poor dear child.

tion is indeed terrible. She is my
sister's child. A sister who married
an artist, in opposition to all her fam-
ily;hedied in a few years, leaving
her with one child, and very poor, of
course. Jroor Mary! her heart was

child ; solitary iu her habits. But we
all love her. Laura, dear, sing that
last new song for Oscar; I know he
will like it.'
And thus with singing, and danc
ing, and boating, and fishing, the time
rolled by, and Oscar,saw but little bf
Lucy. He hovered around Laura
constantly, and Mrs. Mortmain was
congratulating herself that her darling
wish would be gratified' when one day
Oscar was brought home senseless and
bleeding, in consequence of a fall
from his horse. ' They laid him on his
bed, aud gravefaced doctors worked
over him for hours before suspended

was her hand that arranged the phials
on the little stand, her baud that gave
the draught, and her voice that, when
the sufferer was struggling with the
fever, soothed him back to quiet. At
last the change came, and the doctor
said that Oscar Mortmain would live.
He was weak and helpless as a babe,
but reason was restord ; and when the
first ray of its light shone from his
eyes, Lucy crept away 'to rest she

Aj large reception was; given by a

Remarkable Trees.
The last treaty with the Cherokee
Indians was sigued beneath a giant
white oak that still stands near the
Cherokee corner, Oglethrope, Ga.
At Wyoming, in Western New
York, is an elm that measured thirty
four feet around the trunk. Its branch
es are thirty-four feet from the
ground.
A curious freak of nature can be s ?en
near Eureka, Cal. It is in the shape
of a tree, seventy-five feet high, one
portion of which is pine and the oth
er fir.
Many oaks in England are 800 to
1,000 years old. The Newland oak is
forty-seven feet six inches in girth.
The Cowthrop, now more than 100
years in processs of decay, still has a
girth of sixty feet.
A peach tree in the garden of Mrs.
Caleb Crow, of Hartford, Ky., is
bearing a full grown purakin. The

its natural fruit this season ; but
nevertheless there hangs the healthy
growing pumpkin, just as it grewn

Women's Day in the 8knatk. The
women of the North and VVeat made.a
concerted attack on the Senate, Wedpe
day, in avor of women's rights and
women's suffrage. There was scarcely
