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.

'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?

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 brilliant wit, he sauntered to his aunt's orcise it with music. It is one of my side to ask about Lucv. 'Lucy? Yes, poor dear child. Ve arc all very fond of her. Her afflic tion is indeed terrible. She is my sister's child.

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.

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 said. Oscar improved rapidly.

MISCKLLANY. 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 N'ics says : "This tree bore none of its natural fruit this season ; but nevertheless there hangs the healthy growing pumpkin, just as it grewn from the blossom to the present size, which is much larger than a man's head."
