JJ'he little voice had taken a Imrsh,
impatient tone, that, tarred iiihih my !
blissful charm; and the small fair
hands of my five year old Myrtle
strove to withdraw my own from the
hands so reluctant to give them up.
"Get away, mamma ; Myrtle will
sing tor herself." And the small

lence tliat grated discordantly main
my highly strung nerves.
"Go awiiv. Myrtle! coawav!" I
angrily exclaimed; "yon arc a naugh

"Mitinina loves the big ugly man :

up her sweet mouth. I shook I oil'.

Hour after hour of the night passed 1
away, and Clayton Holmes lingered,
lieVer weary of his file ot love, and I !
could gladly have listened forever to I
We were to ho married when tl e
May blossom dropped upon the leafy
bosom of June, and a visit to Italy,
tlaj sunny land ol poetry and music,!
was in In; taken In our protracted tour.
He started when the tiny orumio
clock chimed the halt hour after mid
night, and with warm kisses upon
lips, cheek and brow, we parted to
meet on the morrow.
I sat alone when Clayton left me,
the past, passing vividly K-fore me.
TWS present with all its untold bliss ,
faded like an unsubstantial shadow. 1
and the past was busy in my heart.
It all came buck, from the hour when i
I, an unloved, dependent menial in ,
my uncle's household was made to
feel a hundred times a day my bitter j
dependent Ioi. to the hour" when Ger
ald Arnold, the millionaire and great !
catch of the season." in the dreamy j
twilight of an Indian summer tlav. j
had brought me to this grand .old
home a happy exultant bride.
Two years later, I stood beside him
ami wined the .hilling moisture of ,
death from his brow. When the sands I
of life bad nearly rim out he whisper-1
ed, "Llllla 1 have given you all, dar-
ling. Uo with the gold as you will ;
but. never forget the more precious
legacy I leave you lie always gentle,
tender and true ti my darling Myrtle."
Wild with grief and distracted with
fear, and that undeftnthje emotion
death always bring. I threw myself
upon my knees arid said : "(icrald !
husband ! darling '. even as you have
lighted up and tilled with' joy and
gladness my life, I swear before Al
mighty God to guard sacredly the
treasure you have committed to my
keeping. " Should I ever prove faith
less, may Ho take back the life mop.:
preeions tlian my own."
'Farewell, beloved; I am content."
With his cold hnndi clasped in mine,
ami .his cold breath on my cheek, his
soul went back toiiod.
Three years had passed, a ml to-night
I had pledged my hand to another;
and driven his child away in coldness
and sorrow, refusing oven the song
and caress that was wont to brighten
: and caress that
her young life
s thee thoughts
rushed over me. I started up. thinking
to tluil my darling, and waken her,
afid sooth her to rest again upon my
bosom. On entering my room I went
to .Myrtle's cradle-bed I started for
she was not there ; and as 1 turned. I
beheld her just beside my bed, upon
the lloor asleep her bright curls
sweeping the carpet, her limbs chilled
1 tenderly raised her in my arms,
and gave the hell a furious ring. Af
ter a tardy delay l.etly made her ap
poarance, and apologized for her neg
ligence by saying ihat Miss Myrtle re
fused to go to bed Until her mamma
hail forgiven and kissed her, and as
her lover was below, thinking l would
soon ue up, sue made bold to go and
entertain him. I had deserted her for
a stranger, ami count not chide a ser
vant for doing the same.
"Myrtic! Myrtie! darling! wake
up ! mamma has come to sing for her
baby uow." She only half unclosed
Iht eyes and murmured, "Myrtie is
cold ami :'leepy ; mamma wait solong
with that had man," and again the
snowy lid closed over the azure eyis.
I rubbed her hands and feet until
they were warm, then gently laid her
upon her little bed; and disrobing
myself lay down to rest. For a long
time I courted slumber In vain. The
eVciiUof the day and night floated
again and again through my mind un
til a deltghtfu1 lassitude pervaded my
mind and being, and I slept, uncon
scious ot the blighting calamity which
was already overshadowing myyoung
slept and all the sunshine, glad
ness and joy that ever composed life
floated before my enchanted vision. I
slept! and dreams as fair as heaven
gladdened my heart and made sweet
music in my heart.
My lover wandered by my side
through the ll iwery paths of Paradise
-anti I was blest and happy.
No unfulfilled wish found place
within my breast and I dared think
the angel Peace hud there forever (bid
ed her wings.
I slept ! hut suddenly I started for f
heard the hoarse unnatural voice of
"Mamma! Mamma! 'Myrtle is

a deathly sickness at my heart. I
knew my darling was within the
clutch of that terror ot childhood

pleaded later, as our venerable physi
cian looked piteoiisly on mother and
child. "Save her and the whole of my
enormous wealth shall he yours,"
"Gladly would I give her back to

God the Hie of my child, but, colder

snug the s.,ng she had pleaded so vain

"Baby rest a little longer

This last verse was a perfect wail,
for. oh pitying God ! 1 well knew my
little birdie's limbs would never grow
Her wings were already plumed for
an upward flight, and over her dainty
white feet the waves of "the la-autlfiil
river" were breaking slowly but sure-
I wag cursed. I had broken my
vow and this was my punishment.
I was unconscious many dap there
after or my heart must have broken
under its trying ordeal.
The cbeerhd blaze of winter had
been replaced by the flowers of spring,
when I first opened my eyes to con

Myrtle was dead !
Dead nnd buried away forever from
the heart that would eternally mourn
her loss. The cold flowers would
bloom and wither ladwcen tnyown
and the liis I had refused to kiss but
1 could never pain my darling again.
Days grew Into weeks and months
before I again gathered up the broken
tear-stained threads of lite, and wove
them into a shroud of penitence and
Only one oj Clayton Holmes' many
notes did I peruse it was a passionate
appeal to be allowed to come to me in
my loneliness ami sorrow. I loved
him thm more than ever I was so
miserable and lonely.
The past loomed up and mocked me
with its fleeting happiness, while the
ful ure. stretching oiit its wild barren
eyes, laughed at my calamity.
On; the love of this man could light
nil and brighten the paths through
which my weary feet must tread. I
loved bint, oh God I how well! and
my heart cried aloud for bis protecting
love and devotion. Yet I put lack
this great treasure of lore this mighty
necessity of my nature, and wrote :
"Clayton Holmes: There is an
Impassable barrier between us, and
we are as widely severed now as
though an ocean rolled between us.
The grave of Myrtle stands between
us, and I cannot' walk over itm-en to
reach the flowers of love that may
blossom upon the other side. AVwr
will 1 listen to another tale of love;
Wf shall my band again lie within
the grasp, or my bead upon the breast
of another; or my heart again thrill
with the rapture of love. New seek
iny presence agnbi ! We are dead to
each other. Respect the solemnity of
death, and tin; sileuco of the grave.
Farewell forever! That the garlands
of hope and love which have forever
faded from out my life, may find a
continual renewal in your own, is the
wlh of I.IU.A."
Long years have passed away since
then: yean of light and shadw's, joys
"Loved one, though lost to human
1 feel thy spirit lingering here.
As softly as I feel the light
That trembles Uirotigh the atmos
phere." My heart has often yearned for the
endearing tics that render home a Par
adise. I have often sighed as I remember
ed the noble form that would so gladly
have lingered by my side ; and tears
of weakness liave stained my cheek
when I dreamed of the small baby
bands that might have wandered over
my lave; the tiny heads that might
have nestled upon my bosom.
Clayton Holmes lias been a husband

My Myrtle crossed the river before

God stilled the Innocent heart ere it

bands to la' pulseless la-fore they had
ever plucked tlai beautiful flowers of
love, to throw them aside with blood
