times richer than he is.'

velope, with a long glanwe at the view

'Stella,' she continued, very grave
ly, 'I have acted the part of a mother
for many years; my wish has ever
been that you form a wealthy mar

She took up the view, slipping a

'If I;favbred his suit, I was to keep

rosy lips, and sealing it with a heavy
slap of theJiand. 'I do not, you will

she murmured, turning the envelope
to look at its superscription.
'Your happiness is within your own
grasp, Stella. You'll recall my words
some day.' And with a stately gait
Belle Lawson left her.
Stella ran lightly up the stairs to
her own room and touched the bell in
'You: 'will oblige me by mailing
thus at once,' she said to the servant
who answered her call, handing him
this very envelope, 'and,' she said,
smiling and blushing, 'be careful of
this, putting another letter into -his
hand. : .'Leave it with no one but the
person tb whom it is addressed. Mind!'
she called, as he turned, to obey. -'There'll
be no-mistake, Miss,' and
that night a perfumed note lay on
Clarence Henshaw's pillow, and he,
foolish fellow, was transported to the
upper heaven of delight over its con
tents. : j
Three months later they were mar
ried. They wereji happy and hope
ful couple. The life upon which tiiey
had entered was like a new unex
plored country, but Clarence meant to
work hjird, and felt little, or no doubt
in regard to tlteir future. He was
equal to-any undertaking in his own
determination that would promote his
wife's happiness, and as to Stella, she
would fdo anything to Iielp her hus
band. 1 J.
. Ie had been a bookkeeper for many
years, and had the promise of sorne-
thia. a little letter jyeb the ming'
season.! So the fiwt few v months of
their married life ran smoothly. Tliey
rented a house in a pleasant part 'of
the city, kept a servant, and Stella
wore the pretty clothes Which had
been provided, at the time of her mar
riage,1 and wondered why sister Belle
had such funny notions about mar
rying a poor man. - '
But toward the close of the first
year of their weded life his firm was
said to be under heavy liabilities, and
the anniversary , of their marriage
found the house bankrupt j and Clar
ence out of a situation.
He applied at this and 'that plaqe,
but month after months slipped by
and he found no opening. They mov
ed out of the house and took "cheaper
rooms in another part of the city. By
this time their funds hfo-nn tn nm b-
and Stella wanted something uew for
her wardrobe. Already she had be
gun to show signs of discontent.
'I shall find something by and by
the. husband said bravely.
It was at this trying time that a
little spec of humanity was put into
Stella's arms, and its feeble cry told
that the responsibility of motherhood
was hers. !
'I am the happiest man alive
Clarence exclajmed, caressing wife
and child. The very happiest he re
peated again, kissing the baby boy.
'Let pride go to the dogs, Stella
he added, remembering that now his
responsibility was greater than before.

She ought to have been contented,

ing with love.
But the thought that -her husband
was brought down to the level of a
common lalorer, hurt her.
Sister Belle had said that her tastes
were luxurious, and she wanted a
pretty home now, and fine apparel
for hersclfaud baby.
The people of ihe world in which
she had lived had never to count their
money to know if they could buy a
new dress. She had never been taught
to make the best of whatever circum
stance you may be placed in, and why
should she now ?
The little privations she endured
worried and vexed her, and in a lit
tle while the sweet-tempered woman
grew moody and down-hearted. She
became careless in her dress, and in
stead of the cheerful little wife he!
used to see, he found a gloomy wo
man aud disorderly house.
But he never complained.
'Stella is homesick he would say;
'and the care of baby is to much for
her. I must make some money and

The warm glow came to his face,

It was unwomanly in her to say
this, she knewj the moment the words

a Convention iathis State, to form anew
Constitution under which the State would
be recognized by them as a member of
the Federal Union. This Convention was
tohe chosen by certain classes of electors
under the Constitution of the State as it
existed tAvhen the war began, to the ex
elosion of others." No new . clement, of
constituency was introduced. ;Tho same
course was adopted with regard to the
other Southern Statesl Tho people' of
North Carolina and the other lately seced
ed States complied with the terms requir
ed of them annulled their Oi-dinaocea of
Secession; renewed their obligations to the
Federal Union: made new contitution

the policy thus inaugurated by Mr. John-
son, was most bitterly; assailed by the
Radical agitators. They then had a ma
jority In both Houses and denied to thn
ten late Confederate States, representa-'
tionin either. They insisted that the
Union should not be restored but "re- -constructed"
on a new basis of constitu
ency in these ten States. They Went to
workand forged the Fourteenth Amend
ment, more exacting than the former ; yet
denied the South any voice in its adoption. .
Upon this great outrage against civiUib
erty and government of consent, the South
looked with calm dignity, nobler iu her
ueipiessness tiian ever before. Her quiet,
orderly, behavior, however, seemed to ex
cite more intensely the vindictiveness of .
her insatiable enemies ; for at the next ses
sion the Radicals resorted to the revolutionary-course
of declaring all tho Southern
States to be in a state of rebel lion, and di vid
ing them into five military districts , and a
military commander was placed over each.
AH the State officials, executive, Legisla
tive and Judicial, in each and all were re
moved from office; the writ of Habeas
Corpus was suspended in time of profound
peace, and, near nine millions of people
put under absolute military sway.
