tened, as if under cluu-med influence,
to the music of his voice, and after
wards dreamed of Uie beau ideal of
her thoughts, now having existence In
Edith W ellman was the name of the
young lady referred to; she was beau
tiful as the most delicate llowcr, gen
tle as a fawn, and the reason she telt
a thrill of pain on learning of her lov
er's good fortune, was tlie fear that it
would separate him who held her
never dying love, so far from her.
He had not said, "Edith, I love
you,'' but why need lie do so; little
acta of tenderness, little expressions of
love, have a language of their owu,
aud it is easily undepstood.
Edith's fears were not without some
foundation, for with new wires, and
new duties, and responsibilities, Fred
Stanley found bis time so much wcu
picd, the new society into which lie
now entered so brilliant, that many
days passed before time was found to
present himself at tlie humble cottage
door ol Uie pretty Edith Welhnan.

thong! it him a fitting subject to add to
a long list of conquests. So onr hero
lived for months following his en
chantress, as one In a dream. They
walked, rode, and sung together, until
Fred Stanley, never doubting that his
devoted love was reciprocated, gave
words to his feelings, oifering all lie
was or possessed, to the bright being,
