one Of the CrOSS paths Led by
j the merest idle curiosity, I tamed
aside aud walked past her, bestow
ing a casual glance as I went by.
Uer slender figure waa clad in
deep black, and her attitude be
token either protouud meditation or
dejection. At tbe sound of mytep
she raised ber bead and looked at
m-. She had been weepiDg, and
the tears still glistened upon her
loug lashes. I had seeu many beaai

r.ut I bad never seeu a face like the

and pitiably tbiu. But there was

Atrived at the end of the path I
paused irresolutely. What waa it
iu those clear, gray eves, with their
tear-wet lashes that appealed to me
so powerfully ? Tbe girl was in
trouioe; she had been Wteping.
Bat what business was it of mine !
I surely had anxieties enough of my
own at that moment without euti
mentally sand hug myM'lt with those
of other i-eople, even pretty girls
wi h iarge appealiog eyes. I wen
ou deleiminedly a few steps, thee,
abruptly turning ou my heel, auc
walked back to where tbe girl sat.
I was going to speak to her. 1 wae
sioing to ank her I was going to
nake a stupendous ass of mselt, in
Exactly what folly I might have
been guilty ot 1 do not know ; but
wbn I reached the eat which she
bad oicipied, it was vacant ; and
some dis.ance ahead I beheld the
slender, blackrobed figure just
leaving the puk, aud too far away
to be overtaken, except by a most
undignified pursuit. With a mingled
sense of chagiiu and relief, I betook
myself to my studio, where, in de
fault of more prodtable employ
ment, I made a dozou sketches ot
the girPs face from memory.
A little before uoou ou the tollow
iug day, after haviug waited all the
morning tor the lucrative sitter who
obstinally persisted iu not present
ing himself, I waa preparing to go
out, when there came a timid kuock
at my studio door. With peasant
previsions of "lull lengths," "halt
lengths," ami 'heads," I ushered in
my visitor, and paused abruptly' in
the verv middle ot an elaborate
bow. For there, looking at mo with
the eyes that had haunted my
dreams by night aud my thoughts
by day, stood the girl iu black!
She- paused irresolutely near tbe
door, the delicate color coming ami
going in her pale cheek. I saw that
she bad rtcognized me in turu. J
am not easily embarrassed. Indeed,
I rather pride myself ou my sanq
froid, as bettts an old student of the
Latin quarter in Paris, aud a citU
zeu ot this great American repablie.
Uut for a moment I stood staring at
her stupidity, possessed by an utter
ly inexplicable leeling of doubt aud
anxiety. T heu I pulled myself to
gether, completed my bow, and ia
?ited my visitor to be seated.
"Mr. Temple, the artist?" she
a.iked, in a faiut, hardly audible
voice. I bowed again with dignity.
She proceeded to unwrap a small,
oblong parcel which she carried
"You reproduce photographs !" she
I bowed a thud time, stiffly. Yes,
I did leproduce photographs.
"This," she went on hurriedly, "
a picture of my poor father, taker
some Tears ago. You see it is faded
and stained, but I thought, perhaps
you might make a portrait from it.
He died suddenly, and I have noth
ing else." She choked, and the
tears swelled iu the sweet, gray eyes
that were l fted to mine.
"Yes," said I, assuming a matter-of-fact
tone to cover my own emo
tiou. -'I can make a good picture.

'Will it be dear ?" she asked,
wiatlolly. "I haven't much money.

She paused ae if she bad said
more than she bad intended. Uo.
consciously my eye ran over her at
tire,and I noted how plain and even
poor, it was. Take money from this

awkwardly, "we will not talk ot the

She shook her head, and arose
with a flushed cheek. -I wish to
pay your usual rates for such work,'
she said, with reserve.drawing forth
a very s'ender purse.
I turned hot with the conscious

If you will leave this photograph
with me until tomonow, I will make
a sketch of the picture aad we cau
tnen talk about tbe price.',
She looked at me doubtfully a
moment, then apparently seeing
something in my faoe which reas
ur d her, he returned the purse to
her pocket and prepared to depart.
''I will come to morrow," she said
I watched from my window the
slender, little figure in its sombre
attire, until it disappeared at the
end of the street, then I took up tbe
photograph she left and began to
si nil v it with something more than
mere art'stic interest. It repre
sented a niHU of middle age, with
elearcur, refiued features a pro
b Hsional gentleman or a studeut, I
judged. In the large, mild eyes,
and tbe delicate, sensitive moutb, I
eoula trace a distinct resemblance
to my late visitor. It was one o'
those faces we sometimes meet
which seem to be clouded with tbe
myaterious shadow of UMertune a
Rrrt of intangible prophecy of son
row to come. This man bad died
suddenly and in debt, leaving his
daughter in straightened circum
stances, it not in absolute waut.
That much I had gathered from ber
words. And tnis cousin ! Who was
;ie ! and what part had be played in
the history of tbe father and daugh
ter? As I sat gazing at the por
trait, with these questions rising one
afier the other in my mind, I felt
myself growing cold with an evil.

ble head that peer at you from the
g!oom aud staius of the old Italian
pictures, like beings from another
world. But it was the expression
that held me spell-bonud and dis
trustful of my own senses. If ever
a soul were utterly given up to the
devil, it was that which now looked
out at me through those narrow,
sombre, threatening eyes. Firm

Tbe next morning I made another
attempt, and this time succeeded in
producing a very passable sketch ot

Ursula Willi, tbe only daughter ot
a well-known scieutist, whose sud
den death I bad read of in tbe pa
per, lie had been accounted
wealthy, bat after his disease it was
f uud that he had dissipated bis
fortune in reckless experiments
and chimerical inventions. Even
the house he lived in had been
mortgaged to bis cousin, Gregory
Talland by name. Talland had
generously offered Ursula a home in
th dwelling which bad once been
tier tat iter's. Penniless, triend les-,
and u' loily without the means cl
earning her own livelihood, he bad
refused ail else. I say compelled

My heart bounced with a new hope
as, little bv little, I saw tbe look of
sonow and despair in her sweet
face give place to one of gentle
trust aud contentment, as if into
her life, too, a uew light were be
ginning to dawu.
I had not ventured to reveal my
feeling to her by look or word,
though she would uot have beeu a
woman had she uot beeu able to
read my heart and guess my secrot.
But one morning, when the picture
was nearly finished, I saw tbat some
thing had occurred to alarm aud

her to tell me her trouble, aud, as it
the uniepressed tenderness in my
voice bad broke through ber self

grace to tbe world He bad given
ber a week to decide. If she still
refused, the blow must tall.
The effect of this story upon me
may be may be easily imagined.
I seated myself beside her, and tak
ing oue cold tittle baud, I told her J
a few simple words tbat I loved her.
"I am poor,'' I said, but yonr love
will give me strength and c urage
io work for us both. It is but a
bare and cheeiless home that I can
offer you, Ursula, but it is better
than the fate tbat is forced upon
you by that man. Let him do his
worst be cannot harm my wife.
And I do not beleive bis story ot
your father's sin. It is a lie, invent
ed to frighten him into compliance.
Uive me your answer, darling. Can
you care for me V 1
She had ceased weeping as I
spoke, and now in a whisper so low
that I could hardly catch its sweet
impoit, she ottered one word:
Long after she bad departed I eat:
dreamiug, and oat of tbd golden
mists of tbe future arose always one
dear face, the face of her who was
8O80OU to share my lot and brignt
eu my life. Many times during tbe
past mooth I bad tried to transfer
that face to canvas, bat had never
sati-fled myself. Now, ucd?r tne
influence ot my new found happi
ness, I tried once more.
Again tbat protouud trance-bke

had pinted tbe uokuowu face

of time, place, thought aod tee'dcg
As I recall tt now I perceive that I
was literally like a man in a deep

myself with a sudden shock.

were tuj ngures ot two men in po
sitions of awful sigmfi-tuce.
Tbe picture represented a room
which I had never seeu It was
haodssmely furnished, aud liom the
saelva laden with books and soien.
title instruments, appeared to be the
study ol a scholar. At a table iu
tbe cent!- of a room, covered with
papers, sat itu elderly man with bis
head towed iu the act ol le.otmg h
ebeet which lay before him. This
figure I recoguized as Ursula's fa
ther. Behind him, iu tbe attitude
of oue taking a stealthy step, with
upraised arm, stood another man,
tbe'same wbose'portrait I had paint
ed unaware a month before. His
fece waa toward me, aud it wore the
same , savage, conscience-smitten
murderous expression which char
Iu his upraised baud he clutched
something that glitteting in the
light ot the reading lamp like a
thread ot silver. It was a dagger of
antique workmausbip, scarcely
thicker thau a needle.
Whatever bad been the mvster
ieuspwer which bad eoutiolled
me, it had caused me to paint with
a realism and accuracy that were
beyond limits of norm tl arc. It was
as it the dreadful scene itself were
beluiz tuacted before me. and I
grasped its import with a sickening
seuse of certinty tbat it had really
occured. All tbat Ursula had toid
me of her father's suddeu death, his
supposed ruin and shame, his cous-
ins's possession of the detd man's
property, uor owu instinctive tear
of the deadOu'd property, her own
i extinctive tear of tbe man, flashed
into my mind. The dreadful truth
stood revealed iu all its monstrous
ugliness. A bee's sting would have
beeu more easily detected thau the
puncture of that delicate blade.
I slept none that night, but when
the dawn stole coldly iu at my win
dows, I bad resolved upou my
course of action.
Wheu Ursula arrived tbe com
pleted portrait of her father stood
upou the easel as before. Strive as
I might to conceal my agitation, her
quick eye detected it. To her anx
lous questioning, I metelv replied
that I had made a strange discov
ery. Theu I diew lortb ibe por
trait of the etrauge man and t laced
it before her.

I dismissed her earlier than usual,
and ten minutes later bad dipateb

Inviting him to icspsct a picture on

It was a brief scrawl in ao almost

tbe verge of madness-
