time to dissemble. He is in a tow-,

without another word. But this
young girl, who is full of quaint
conceits, has a teuder heart, aud
runs after him.
"Mr. Ainsworth,'' she says, Ia3'iug
a white detaining hand upon his
arm,' 'you dropped these ;'' aud she
thrusts into his hand a bunch of
purple violets, which she has woru

is in sight. She is uot. He press
es the flowers hastily to his lips,
purs them in his breast pocket and
returns ; but Jessie and Bentou are
alone one tbe lawn.
"Where is Avis!'' asks Jessie,
and Benton's eyes put the same
question.
"I thought she was here,'' he an
swers.
''We thought you had gone.''
"So I had," rather confusbed,
"but I came back to spoak to Miss
Atherton,"
"Well, you will have to find her,''
'aughs Jessie. At this moment to

but she has promised Jessie to re

She is dispen.-ing tea.
"O ! Avis, here is 31 r. Ainsworth ;
do give him some tea,"' says Jessie.
"Thanks, Miss Jessie, I should
, never have dared to ask tor it, my
self," he returns.
"Do you drink tea?" asks Avis,
over a sea of heads it seems to him.
"1 will, if I can get some,'" he re
plies, insinuating that he would like
tj get nearer.
"Ob, Mr. Murray will hand it to
you ; will vou not, Mr, Murray, to a

Ainsworth cannot bear, as he takes
tbe cup from her hand ; she smiles
archly and looks into his face as she
replies, but what she says is also

How inaccessible sbe seems; he
almost wonders if he was ever near
or alone with her. But to morrow
she will be all his, for a few hours, j
at least, aud perhaps forever. He j
does not Know how he dares hope!
she will favor his suit, but the little j
episode of yesterday lingers plea9-

way to her side, buc by this time
tbe tea is over, and the supplicants
begin to disperse. As he reaches
her, Fred Brenton offers bis arm for
a stroll in the garden. Avis stands
near a tall urn filled with tropical
plants ; one hand is toying uncon
sciously with their gorgeous foliage,
as she listens ; Ainsworth i unper
cied, as the urn hides him from
view ; he advanc-'s a step nearer and
imprints a hasty kiss upon the hand
among th h aves. Aus starts and
gives a siight exclamation. Benton
solicitously inquires the cause of

"Nothing much,'' she answers,
"only 1 thought I felt som thiug on
my hand.'' She turns ami meets

Ar last the qjoiiow dawns bright
and fair, and at the appointed hour
he finds himself awaiting: her pres
ence in tbe Alton's par'or. Ah 1
here she comes ; how his heart leaps
for joy at the sight of this fair,
slight girl. How bewitchilgly the
rosebud lips part and display the
dazzling teeth, as she gives him
greeting.
"You are going away, you say
it is not so easy.
"Yes, I am going hoim this week;
but I have been- very happy here,''
with a little sigh.
"Are you not happy there ? ' he
inquires.
"Oh, it is a new home,'' she an
swers; "but I think I will be."
"A new borne !'' be echoes, with
tightening heart strings. "What

"I had a stepfather when I was

gives a loog-drawn sigh.
"Avis !" she starts at his strange,
low tone. "Ah ! my dariiug, I must

tenderly, caressingly over hers. "1

ters, with downcast eyes.
"What do you mean ?" he asks, in
smothered accents, putting bis band
to his head. For a moment he has
forgotteu his engagement. Is he to
be denied this exquisite bliss for one
stroke of the pen ?
"Pardou rn6, but you know," with
evident effort she is speaking, "that
sometimes men do not have tbe lib
erty of addressing girls as you are
addressing me now ; and only mis-
ery comes of it."
"O, Avis! unless you give your
self to me, unie38 lean call you
wife, lo happiness can ever come to
m!"
"Then you are free f with a little
half-tearful laugh, reaching her
hands to him. "Jessie said she
"I did not mean to deceive you.
Avis," taking the little hands held
cnt to him reverently, "audi will
tell vou all now. There is not much
j to tell, but I meant to tell from tbe
first.''
j She catches her breath, and with-
craw3 her bands. "Go od,'1 she
says.
"Six months ago I was a careless,
heartfree feilow. About that time
I received a letter from my mother,
asking me to marry a young gir!
whom I had never seen ; I had had
a brief correspondence with her, and
my mother's prah-es of her made mo
f incy it would be easy enough. So
I wiote to Miss CouUland, asking
her baud, Bbe accepted, I send ber
a ring and that is all. But when
I met you, Avis, 1 knew then that
uuriiage with another would be
impossible, and J have not written
to ber since. As we have nor writ-
ren 10 her since. As we have never
met, she wid doubtless be as glad
as I to end this ill-advised engage
ment ; for, perhaps, she, too, has al
r a.iy discovered it was all a mis-,
take. This very night I shall write
and explain everything, and release
myself and her Irom a bondage
that shcu'd never have misled."
"But how, if she has learned to
love you f asks Avis, in low, broken
tones.
He laughs. "The idea is prepos
terous! Ah ! darling, 1 will risk it,''
he answers happily ; she seems very
near to him, and be feels sure that
he will win.
"Bat it may cot be as impossible
as you imagine; your mother's
praises of yoo may have inspired
loveiuyour breast, aud she
pauses.
"Well and ' he says, eagerly.
"She may ' not wish to give you
up,"
"Then should she have fallen in
love with an ideal my mother may
have paiuted of me, I am very cer.
tain that when she sees the original
she will straightway fall out again."
"I am not as sure ot that,'' she
whispers ; but he bears, and before
be, bimseif, is hardly aware of what
he is doing, he has her in his arm-,
and is kissing ber passionately.
"My darling, you do love me ?
You will be mine i"
As soon as possible she with
draws herself from his embrace.
"Mr. Ainsworth, I am astonished
at you ! what do you mean by such
conduct?'' Her tone and manner
are verv dignified ; but the flutter
iug eyelids, the quivering lips, aDd j
soft, sweet blush do not bespeak
anger.
"I beg year pardon,'' he sayp,
humbly; "but I was wild with de-
lirrht c.t ei" licit' T'nnr nrnrHo imnluiil I
they seemed to give promise of so
much. Can you forgive me?"
" Yes, I will forgive you."
"And,'' after a short silence, in j
which he baseage'ly waited for bet
to say more, "bow do you answer
me ?'
"If she is as lad to break with
you as you are to annul your eu
gagement with her ''
"Yes, yes ?', breathlessly.
"Well, come to me when you are j
free.''
' Ah ! that is enough ! ' he ex
claims, rapturously. "Tbe tie is
easily broken ; Miss Ccurtland, I
dare say, is hear tily sick of her
bargaiu by this time, and will hiii
my proposal with delight." After a
few momeuts silence, in which be
has been gazing at ber bands, as
they lie idly ungloved iu ber lap, he
says: "I have been afraid that
riug," pointing to a handsome soils
taire diamond on her forefinger,
"was a betrothal ring."
"Yes? Well, tbe nng w-s a pres.
ent to me ; but I do not think it will
part us it"
"Ou, tbere is no if about it. By-
the-way,'' breaking off euddeidy,
"when shall I see you aaic ? When
do you start for home ?"
"It will depend upou tbe answer
yn receive from Miss Uourtland
wherher we ever meet again or not,''
"Oh, do not say that, for it is very
uncertain when I can get my an

will be. You see I don't know
where she is.''
"Dou'c know where she is !" sbe
repeats.
