riRST AWDOWLY LOVI.
It bit often b*en a matter of wonder
to «• why I loved Elw;n A«hton at I
did.
H* wa* twalve ;*ira mf lanlor, aad 1
oat; alghteea t yet I loved bim.
I ramtnber well bow glorlouily the
•an thon* on that (uminer arternoon
•ben we ttuod together on the lawn
waking for tha c*rri*ea to arriva that
•hould brii'H Aunt Giearior in ipend
iuma waekt at our hnuse. I,’ so pruud
of blin, ai> bapp; at tba pronpect of
seeing Aant Eleaeoi’* admlrstldn fur
my nubia darling, so shy at his adnilru-
tlon for myseir, so hopeful thst they
~i>uld like each other and be frlendf,
“For the b very beautiful, Elwyn,"
I ssid, “and only ten years older thin I
I"
I can tee now tht quiet liugh in his
dark eyes, and the pluvful curve of the
lipt, at of one namorlut a petted child
a ttraiige alfe 1 iliould have been for
bin), after all. And there wnt t tound
wheels, and drawing my arm in bis,
led me to the frjut entrance to wel*
Come my aunt.
1 do not clearly remember when that
first feelliii of jifsluu’ly stole into my
mind, t think I tcarccly under«ti>od it
when firw it did come. He had iie«er
Chsngcd to me; I naa ever uppermnst
bis thoughts; all his moat graceful
itlentioiis were mine; yet I saw plainly
that be found in her a companionship I
was far from being able to give, fur I
wst only B darling plaything, a beloved
and petted child.
Cue evening I noted well how bright
and animated he wai, and the admiring
look that kept deepgning In his eyes
and, ibe increased interest of voice and
manner at the^ converintion progrrsed,
~ til grsduslly the hand I held becama
uiiconsciuus of mine, and, when I
loosened niy bold, slipped away to
estend itself for greater etnphiiiis to
ward t her. And then I rose, pale and
faeirt-sick to say goud-night.
“We have not bid oiir uiuil talk to-
light, Birdie?” he said.
‘Nil,’* 1 intwered laconicilly.
‘It ll loo late DOW,” luuking at his
watch.
“jres."
“What it tha matter?” asked my
aunt; “Are you unwell?”
••No," again.
Then tbe laughed, low and melodi-
ouly.
Fou bad brtter go to bed, cliUd!”
Ohild I Suddenly, and with a quick,
abarp pain, ss If atrnek by ligbt'iilni;, I
felt all that har words were Intended to
covey to him—to bim, though nut to
—and as suddenly the child became
womsn.
“Walk down tba avenue with me,
nnee.—only once, Elwyv,” I said; "my
bead aches,”
Witb ibis old csrressing toach, be
adjiitifd my shawl; then beaitated a
mi.ment, and said, half reluctantly,
•■Will youf Shull I?”
I knew what he meant, .and turned
with all tbe dignity I could assume.
“Aunt Eleanor, if you wish to come
too, you may.”
L may, may I ?’’she answered pet
tishly. “Thanks. Bat if its all tbe
tame to you, I prefor not.”
“Elwyn,” I said, when we were out of
her bearing—fur I felt tlist I must men
tion the tubjent or die, almost—“Elwyn,
ay tu'it bas been here more tbf>a a
ontb now do you like her?”
'-She is charming.” be said, honestly:
■'cbarmiiig ”
“Ab/‘ I said; “so they all say, sooner
or later."
'•They ?” be asked; “who are they ?”
“Man.”
He laughed; and drew my arm
tbrou^b bis, and we finished the wsik
in silence. Then, when we bsd reoched
the fVont-door, and I held up my lips
for tbe usasl icisi, h« said, “She is very
chsrming, but my baby is worth ten of
her.”
'Oh I” I sobbsd, throwing myself
into bis arms, and clinging to him with
pauionate palo and sorrow, ' do not say
so, I am a woman now—a woman.
Kiwyn; do not csll me that any more 1”
“Well, I will not if it hurts you.”
And be took my face between hit
bands, and bent over me with hit own
bright smile. B>it breaking from bim,
I ran upstairs, ind shut mytelf in atf
room.
What could I do? NflilMng. I felt
tbit be ini daily, hourly being drawn
away from me, and my weaii power
could avail nothing against the more
subtile will of that nider and far superior
woman of tbe world. Mt mother,_ ah,
but not even to her could I complain of
Rlwyn. And so tiia days went on.
One afternoon, io tbe early autumn, I
went down tu the shore alone, titling
listieM and idle, though wearily. At
last, voices dbtarbed me, voices chat I
knew only too well—his and b«rs-and
I suld tu listen. They grew qulbter at
lip^aehed and fioallif niti^

I knew by *he sudden start aad aakk

own loud gutpt aad l«aaa«l farward ta
bear more.
'Elwyn?” And aow tba tea* wtt
changed. It was as If tha words ware
forced, wrung Irom her. '-Hava pliy—
I Inva you,
“Qracioua hsaveas I” 1 knew ba bad
s'irtrd to bis feat. ' You tall ma thltf
Ynul”
“I do I” she answered, Iremuloutly j
"and aiore—you love me 1"
I heard him groan, and knew by Iq‘
stinct that hit hands were stretcbad to
wards ber ts though to defand btr from
ber nwn words.
You love me,” the continued, atnre
cslmly, “and I love you. I have waited
for you to speak, but you would aot) so
I bsva dona it. Yna may imagine,
you will, what it costs a woman to make
inch a confetsion unsolicited. Dj you
blame ma, Elwyn?”
“Blame i” be said, “my besutlfnll
my dearest I And yet Oh, tha trai
tor the mlierible triltur you have made
of me, Eleanor 1”
It it Itaciuse I lova yon. F«rglva
me. if too well. Elwyn.”
“She loves me ton,” he Mid,
“That child?” she snswered, witb a
touch *f sircKm. '-Her heart is too
you and untried for deep Impression.
Oh, Elwyn, whst is ber lova tu mine?
She Is a pretty t"y—t plaything. Will
you weigh ber in the bilauce against
oie I”
“Eleanor,” he (ilesded, ''hive mercy 1
Take my life, as you have my lova but
leave me, at least, a little telf-respact.
We are strong In our love, and cm
bear more than she cao. D> not be
cruel in your power.”
Wliat do yiiti want to do?” she
asked,
“To be true to her,” he laid bitterly,
yet, oh, Itotv grimly I “I wish ber never
to know tha' it is to a traitor her pure
faith has been given. For I will
marry her and cherish her as though
you and I had never met. So help me
heaven 1”
“Ai'd what is to become of me?”
“Hove mercy I Why did you avtr
come between us I”
“You say you love me. I ask, what
is to become of mef You say you lova
me, Elwyn I”
“Ah, belter than my ova truth and
honor I”
Ob, bow changed and br«kea bis
voice inunded I
I waited to no more. My re>
tolve was takfu. ilis pride was humbled
to the dust—trampled beieath tha feet
of his great pitiioo, lie should never
knowingly make me witness of hit hii-
niiliation. This much I could aud would
do for bim.
That evening I isked him to wilk
down the avenue with me, for tha list
time, and then I slid, “KIwyn, thii must
end between ue. I will oot mirry
you ”
It wat a ttrangn Hart he gave—a
itrange look, almost of j.iy, that flashed
over his face, only tu be gone again.
And then I gaini-d strength tu tall tba
faUehood, that was to set him free.
“I do not love you, Uiwyn.”
It is needless to repest bis hurried
words nf qiiestion and confused ramor..
strsr.c*. liiit I saw that he believed my
love was gone from bim, and tharoia 1
could be thahklul.
A short month ind they wera married.
I never saw them again.
But long after they told ma ha was
dead, and that she wat about to wed an
other husband, and they gave me the
little packet of hair that be bad id-
dressrd witb his own band to bis "First

art of much leis consequence than the

Tbe fsther has bis trade or proression,

bullets. They esy but little. Tbe few
Words go right to the mirk. They let
you talk, and guide your fact and ayet
oil and on, till- wbat yon tav can be an
swered Io a word or two. and than they
launch out a sentence, pierce the matter
tu the quick, and sre dona. Your con
versation falls into their miods as a
stream into a deep chasm, and I* lost
from tigh by its depth and darkness.
Tbay will anmetin.et surprise you with
a few words that go to the mark like a
gun-shot, aod then they are tilent sgiin,
as if they were reloading. Such men
ere tafe coonaelon aad true friendt,
where they profest to be tuch. To
tbem truth it mnrt valaable than gold,
while preteotion Is too giudy to deceive
them. Word* without point to them
ire like titles without merit—nnly be
traying tbd weakaem of the blind dup*
who are ever used to foraard otb*r
men'* tchemca.

“Somaabat, ma'am,” waa tbe
reply.
''Nstora la Indeed wonderful In ber
workings,” continuid tbe lady.
“Observe the green grass in tbe flelds,
snd in a short tima it Is eoavrrtad into
milk, and from milk to butter,”
“Yet, ma'am.”
“Honey is a strange anomaly, also.
Observe tbe bee wandering from fl iwer
tu flower, eitritUng tbe twealt there
from, and despositlng It ia the gobnlar
from Into tha comb.”
“Yes, ma'am ”
“Is there tuffli-leot nntriment In it to
be nf any practicsi use?”
“Y*s, ma’aai.”
“If I am not axhtttstlag yonr patience,
may I ask you whst uu It made of the

''We Iced tome of It to the bogs, and

It Is trae that eve* light datiaa too
often appear aa Irksome iask«, while we
oaijerly indulge In pleasure* that cost
great labar add pain. The wise and
(rue man recognixi** the fact that bis
duties ere many Indeed, nearly all of
life—and miking pleasures of tbem
adds to miny pleisures to bis life, ^t
men of reasooabla health and fortune
are too apt to feel indvpeodent of the
world, aod to act upon the selfish idea
that no one assists them, and they are
therefore under no obligatinos to their
fellow-min. Oariyle ityt that one can
not move a ttep without meeting a duty,
*nd thst Ibe f*ct of mutual helplessness
is proveded by the very fact of one's ex
istence, No men llveth tu blmtelf, and
no man distb to bimseir. In all tbiu
concerns our neighbors we have an in*
terest that is at ouce oatural aod una
voidable.

It Is taid that the extravagance of girls
