BY ABBIE LEE,
Ou the banks of the eastern shore
of Virginia an elegant mansion
reared its lofty height. Around and
even down to the "Sea Girt shore''
the extensive grounds were laid ont
with a lavish splendor, which be
tokened the possessor to be a per
son of rare taete aDd refinement, as
well as great wealth.
The winter evening had set in
with a cold, windy rain. Small
particles of snow fell against the
window pane, as if to take refuge
beside the hearth, from which huge
and noble logs cast a ruddy glow
n pen the costly furniture.
On such a cheerless night Elford
Trevis was to bring home bis bride.
-Even the elements seemed to resent.

house dog, who sat within the door
way, raised his shagey head as the
sound ol the sea king, lashing his
turbulent subjects, fell upon his

lapse or time, a tiny bird sprang
from some hidden niche, and after
warbling a few silvery notes, it clap-

As the sound fell upon the ear of
young girl, buried within the
cushions of a large chair, she start-.
but oue hour before
the steamer will be in, and the ears
leave. One look at those precious
littie ones, and then this heart must
learu to look elsewhere for love.''
As she spoke, Enna Trevis left
the room, Scarce eighteen sum
mers of her life bad passed, and but
little more than two years siuce she
had placed the firt garland (wet
with her bitter tears) unon her
idolized mother's grave, from that
dy she turned the key upou ber
own blighting sorrow, and made
the light and comfort in the dark,
eued home for her father and two
Tbe affection which existed be
tween Elford Trevis and Eona was
ttuly touching, His manner to
ward her was always tender, gentle
and deferential, His pride all cen
tered in her. He rode with her,
sang with her, and consulted her m
all business matters, while she
looked upou her farther as the
noblest work of tbe Creator, and
really they were as essential to each
ether as the sunbeam to tbe rose.
Full soon the earth upon the
grave ot Elford Trovis' wife became
green with the grass, and the flow-
era nis children had planted within
tnontbs had ned witn "jtatner
Time," and the only change in his
spleudid home was a call from
his State, to fill an honored seat in
the Legislative ball of Kichmond.
The time of his absence seemed long
to Eona, and tbe smile which weN
corned his glad return told him ot
Tbe night was glorious. After
the little ones had kissed papa and
sister "goodnight'' and gone to
rest, Mr. Trevis wrapped a fleecy
sbawl aroung tbe form of his daugh
terrwith a oordonable thrill of
pride and joy, that so much beauty,
grace and elegance belonged to him,
he bore her away. "While they were
seated upon a rustic seat, wiih the
moonbeams and tbe waves dancing
to gentlest music of the evening
breeze, be told her of his travels, of
the thunders of applause which
followed his efforts to represent tbe
cause of bis nob'e brothers and con
stituents. Then, with his arm ar-
jound ber and ber hand in his, he
jtold her of a gentle, loving woman

'silence, while he told her of tbe eary

rested against his strong breast

and almost as cold as the marble
figures which filled the niches ot
the spacious ball.
Tbe time glided by. Mr. Trevis,
urged by the great sadness which
shadowed the Madouna face of his
daughter, hastened the time of his
marriage, feeling confident that a
meeting between those two so dear
ly loved, would remove all prejudice.
Only in the silence of her chamber,
with her mother's portrait before i
her, did tbe calmness give way.
"I cannot call her molber, I can
not! Oh, mother, my precious moth
er ! lying in your silent grave. How
can I see another take your place ?
I cannot; I must leave all the dear j
associations, this loed home, and
wander alone into the world ; bid
adieu to my darling father, my Ut
ile sisters, ray heart's happiness."
And thus tbe misguided girl put
away from ber the happiness cf her
young life, and resolved to go away
to some crowded city, and, under an
assumed name, teach for her main
tenance. Tbe winter evening grew more
boisterous as the hour approached,
which would herald the coming of
the steamer. Enna Trevis passed
from the parlor up to the nursery,
where her young sisters lay in the
sweet sleep of innocence and hap
piness. After pressing kias after
kiss upon their lips, her tears fell
upon tbe golden curls of her three
year old pet Ola, then turning the
key once more upon her sorrow, she
stepped mto the carriage. She or
dered .Richard to drive to town and
to the depot.
"Hurry, Richard ; so as to be back

"Yes, indeed, I will love them all.

Tbe hour passed and iu the pre
scribed time tbe steamer lay oppo

and seated in tbe carriage. It was
not until they bad started for home,

and with the hand of his wife clasp-

Tuns they went to wotk hand in

remained fixed upon the fire.

Clyde. With a willowy grace and
elegance which was peculiar alone
to Enna Trevis, whom the reader
will have recognized, she acknow
ledged the introduction to Dr.
Clyde ; then took ber seat at the
piano. Strain after strain of soft
liquid music floated through the
room, which soothed and calmed
the restless child more than all the

Benton and I fear that she has seen

Ettie think her some princess iu dis

fills the position. Dear little Ettie
clings to hr, aud she alone can
soothe these nervous attacks. Her
grace and gentleness, united with
the sweetness of her face, touch me
to the soul. I would gladly draw
from her the cause of her sorrow,
but a certain reticence of manner
repels anything which would lock
like curiosity. Anne Sivert is her
name. I do not know wfcere she is
from, and she has beeu with us a

from Richmond. You have not
heard her sing ? Her voice is music
itself. Ettie, will you not ask Miss
Annie to sing your favorite song,

Enna complied with her request,
and even surpassed herself. Song

they could not see the effort it cost

they relax tbeir assiduity (not un

that sbe would sing an old song,

forever, by hisjust resentment. She
tried oue bar, and sang "The dear

Buton, be ferrad little to occupy
Lis time, and his office house re
mained unbrokou, except now and
then by a chanty patient, and
tbn gs vvent on thus for more than a
month, when, one day, a rumoi
went abroad that a pestilential fe-
ver had broken out iu the city ; tbej
next, it was talked about openly at
the corners of the street. The doc
tors wer3 seeu in every direction.
In the haunts of tbe lowly aud poverty-stricken
abodes Dr. Clyde
would went his way, ana, as though
the magic of healing were his to
give, the angel of death was stayed
at his touch, and the sweet sleep of
reluming consciousness visited his
patieuts. Soon his fame went
abrond, and, from that time, Dr.
Clyde's name became a household
word in many homes, both lowly and
lofty. Possessed of many manly
a handsome face and
form, be did uot fail to attact tbe
attention of the fair sex ; but, hav
ing reached the ace of thirty, he
still seemed as much devoted to the
"Sister E'len,"' to whom we left him
writing, as ever. A part of bis let
ter ran thus :
"I am sorry, dr-ar E len, you could
not accept tbe invitation of our uiu
tul friend, Mrs. Benton, but I
suppose your new duties and ties
are sufficient excuse. I feel like
quarreling with Mr. Trevis for
cheating ns out of this visit. We
need your presence-sadly, dear sis.
Mrs. Benton has staying with her
in the capacity of gc verness, a lady,
who interests ns very much. She
is beautiful, graceful, and dignified,
and yet such an ineffable sadness
veils her sweet face as to make it
painful to look at her. She is so
reserved that, as yet, none ha3 bad
an insight into her 'holy of holies-'!
If you were ouly here, I know you
could cheer and soothe her. Her
name is 'Anne Sivert' tbe name
does not correspond with ber face
and general deportment,''
Day afrer day found Dr. CIvde at
the house of Mrs. Benton. Ettie's
ill health demanded bis constant
attendance. In visiting Ettie be
found ample opportunity of observ
ing tbe growing paleness and ian
gour of her chosen friend and con
stant companio". With genuine
grief he saw the roses fade from the
cheeks of Enna, and her step grow
more feeble day by day. A month
ot constant intercouise had not les
sened bis respectful admiration for
ber, atid he was the only oue she'
knew in that vast city except tbe
dear friends she bad made in her
lonliness Colonel aud Mrs. Benton,
and the two children.
Coming in one day, he found her
alone with Ettie. After speakiDg
to the child, be turned to her:
"Mrs. Benton has requested me
to take your case in hand. How are J
you to-day ?''
"I am quite well," she replied, jbe replied,

her steps as rapidiy as she could,
with her veil dowu and her eyes on
the ground, she did cot observe Dr.
Civ tie's approach until he spoke to
'You have taken more of a walk

The one ray ot exquisite joy which
brightened her beautiful, sad eyes,
made his great heart bound for one
brief second, then withdrawing her
sell from him, she exclaimed :
"You must not ; you cannot, Dr
Clyde. I am not what I seem. Oh !
why did you tell this 1 I am
miserable, indeed.'' And just then,
arriving at the door, she sprang up
the steps and hastened to her own

"Go to her, sister ; the young girl,

Not so much in his words as in
j the far oft depth cf his daik eyes,
j she read the story of "hope denied."
Unclasping a jeweled miniature
j from her watch-chain, she handed
'it to him.

"Ah ! I nee ou are as blind as

Tbe snow fell tbick and fast,
but iioua lay unconscious of the
.storm; tbe moaning did Dot cease
nor did she appear to notice the en
trance of Mrs. Benton.
"Dear Miss Anne what is the

"I do not know. Is it morning V

Yes ; I will come. Is she at the

j All that night they watched beside
jber bed Mrs. Benton, Dr. Clyde,
j the rejected step-mother. All
j night ber lips gave utterance to the
thoughts of ber active brain.
"Father, dear fatter, do not turn
'away from me;
it is breaking my
heart to see you turn from me in
lips pressed hers, as a tear fell upon
her parched brow.
"Do angels weep, mother T I
thought God wiped all tears from
their eyes. I am so tired, bo tired.
Rork me to sleep, mother."
When the morning light stole in
to the darkened room, Enna lay in a
deep sleep, with one hand clasped
in her mother's, while sbe bathed
her brow with the other.
"Keep her asleep, EMeo. I must
ride around and see my patient,
but I will be back sood,''
Dr. Clyde turned to go.
' Clinton shall I write her father
of her situation f
'On, no! Before he can receive
the letter she will hare passed the
crisis. 1 trust this sleep will resalt
iu good ; save him the anguish aDd
suspense. Watch her, sister, close
ly.'' The morning passed, and still Eu
n slept ; the evening closed, and ber
slumber remained unbroken.
It whs beyond the hour of mid
night. Dr. Clyde sat on one side,
Mis. Trevis on th3 other, when she
opened her eyes. The old, sad,
weary look bad passed away, and a
sweet gentle smile lighten tbem.
Dr. Clyde spoke to her, telt her
pulse, ;nd turning to his sister, oe
said, "She is much better; I will
leve her with yon now, and go into
thewnext room,and take a few hours'
Mrs. Trevis arrarged her pillows,
administering a soothing draught,
and resumed her station by the bed.
Enna watched her for some time,
until she took her seat, then she
said, "Yon are very kind. Who are

Have I been very sick?''
"Yes, Dr. Clyde feared yoa

"Have I been so near death, and

was very sinful ; do you think my

"Ob, yes. my child. Why should
