A diamond bracelet encircled one

pride as 1113' eyes met the fairy reflection
in the mirror.
"Come, Gerald, make hrsste; why, you

"Men are so selfish!" I said, plaintive

No answer again.
'Well, it 3'ou choose to be sullen, I
can't help it," I said lightly, as I turned
aid went out of the room, adj tstitig my
silver boquet holder, the tube roses and
helitiopes seeming to distil incense at
every motion. ;
Was I heartless and cruel? Had I
ceased to love my husband?
From the bottom of my heart I believ
ed that I loved him as truly and tender
ly as a wife ever did, but I had been so
spoiled and petted all uiy brief, selfish
life, that the better instincts were, so to
speak, entombed alive.
I went to the party and had my fill of
adulation and h 0111 age as usual.
The hours seemed to glide away, shod
with rjses and winged with music and
perfume ; and it was not until, wearied
with dancing, I sought a temporary ref
uge in the ha'f-li::hted tea room, that I
heard words awakening me, as it were,
from a dream. ;
I could not well be mistaken in the
name it was scarcely commonplace
enough for that.
They were talking two or three stout,
business-looking gentlemen in a hall with-r
out, and I could catch now and then a
fugitive word or phrase. ;
'Fine, enterprising young fellow !"
''great pityi" "reckless extravagance of
bis wife !" - :
AH these vaguo fragments I heard,
and then someone said: ;j-
"And what is he going to do now?" I
"What can le do, poor fellow. I am
sorrv, Lut should
have calculated his
iucoitio and his expenses better."
"Or his wife should. Douce take these
womeii; they are at the Lottom of all a
man's troubles!" i
At:d they laughed. Oh, how couM

beating tumultuously beneath the pink

For 1 felt nor that home was the place
: Hurried by some unaccountable im
pulse, I sprang out the moment the car
riage wheels touched the curb stone and

The door was locked, but I coulj see a
light shitting under the thresholiL I
knocked wildly and per.sis'ently.
"Gerald! Gerald! for ; Heaven's sate

Something fell on the niarble hearth
stone within, making a metallic cltn!i.
and my husband opened the door a little
I had n:?ver seen him look ;S0 pale
before, and so rigid, yet so determined.
"Who are you?" he ilemandcdi, wildly;
"why cannot you leave me iu peace."
"It's I, Gerald your Madcl.ue your

Where were we now?
It was a pieturc-que little cottage just
out of the city, 'furnished' much dike a

cushioned e isy chair on the piazza, just
where he could glance through the open
window at nie, -working a bafh of biseuits,
with my sleeves rolled up above my el
bows, and the gold thread hair neatly
confined in a silken net.

"No; what do, I care for croquet
parties? I'm going to finish your shirrs,
and you'll read aloud to me?"
'Madeline, I wjut you to answer me
"What is it?"
I had safely deposited my pan of bis
cuits in the oven by this time, and-was,
dusting the fl jur olF my hands.
"What have you done with your dia

"I sold them tang ago; they paid sev

JiTEXiLK IJurciiKKS. A few days
since two little lii) aged 1 especti vel- si X
and eight years, brought home with them
from a slaughter-house a beef's heart and
some other scraps of meat. After ar
riving home the idea occ tired that they
would start a meat maikct Noj sooner
said than done. After-fixing up their
stall it was found that they had no neat;
so they started after some. Coining np
to a small dog, they up with a club and
stone ami killed the specimen of I the ca

became alarmed at the prospect of meet
ing au agrv. owner, and to conceal their
supposed misdeed, the dog a chucked

why the dog was killed, out: of the b.3-s
replied that "ihey oil not have any meat

The Doctor, Johnson, and I gained the

with everything else, had been waslmJ

Whilst wo v.re eras iking what was

There was no mistaking the sincerity
of hfs threat.! The tall ferryman was
evidently not the kind of a person to be
trifled with. There was a fixed look
about him and a deliberate coolness in
his "mariner that suSBsIontly ihd cated his

a most profound sigh he placed his twj

tone, "My God ! if I only had my rifle !"
and then pissed over. Col. Wash was

with rago. and declared with m-tny extra
otdinary oaths that he would have satis

the use of talking? We were all shiv

thirsty propen-itles, was evidently 110
.jol. That clause in the ferryman's ad
dress "I'll drap him sure!" was wonder
folly impressive. S i Colonel Wash put
uisi money 'upon the chip, promising to

"That's all right, stranger," said tho
