which my poor dear mother had drudged
out her sad existence was once more
spread the supper table for her weary,
heart-worn child. Many evidences of
the ravages of passing years were visi
ble in the quaint old house, but the tidy
thrift of the bright young wife had cov
ered the unsightly walls and ceiling
with oft-renewed whitewashing. Snowy
curtains adorned the low, square win
dows, and morning-glories nodded at
nic through the open door as I entered
to take my seat at the family board.
I was faint from hunger, but before my
eyes I saw "not that which was nor that
which should have been." Overpower-
inc emotions conquered appetite. If
tears had conic to my relief I could, ier-
haps, have laid my will upon my spirit
with the command of "peace, be still."
But I seemed turned to stone. I made
an ineffectual attempt to quaff a tumbler
of water, and fell back fainting to the

window, catting grotesque shadows on
the clean, white bed.
I seemed at once to rememberiud dis
tinctly comprehend the exact situation.
There I was, in my Own little bedroom, 1
after the lapse of nearly a third of a cen
tury situated with no alteration in visi
ble surroundings, and there was noth
ing to convince my vision that I was
not living over the days of long ago.

ovor-lived the years, and realized that I
was now a wrecked and wretched woman,
whose life-exierience had been but gall
But why did I hear that strangely
woll-romembcred voice? -"Who was he,
and what of him?
"Re urr, madam! I charge you for
your life! Remember to give this w
tion overy half-hour until I return. I
shall bo here as quick as I cau return
from the city," I heard the doctor say.
Directly I dozed away into a fitful
slumber and dreamed that I was stand
ing above an awful crater. The frown
ing precipice on which Istood wasquak
ing under my weight, and luring llamcs
dune hiwiug up the crevices, licking
out at me their fiery tongues, while
more and more the beetling crags would
totter, and a strong, hot wind impeled
me on as if to force me right into the
fearful gulf. I grasped a rocky column,
out, proven reu not, anu still another,
and 'twas icy cold. I knew not what to
do. Faint and fainter grctv my breath,
weak and weaker grew my will, and
down I fell, to light, as I believed, right

tongues of flame sent up their spiral
forms to meet me, and I gave up all for

. came when hope and will and strength
departed. A still, small voice spoke in
my soul the soft, sweet words "fear not,"
and I felt myself borne upward from the
soothing pit. A long and fervent kiss
was pressed uixm my fevered mouth, so
like a well-remembered one of long ago
that in my soul was borne anew a grand
and solemn joy.
Unuer this blissful emotion I awoke
once more to consciousness to find my
hostess watching by my side, and wait
ing with a prescription, which she or
dered mc to swallow. I mechanically
obeyed, and lay back upon the pillow,
leaeorul, serene and happy, but for my
life could have given no reason why.
. "Did I not know," I tisked myself,
"tliat a ilream such as I have had was
but the phantom of a disordered brain?"
"What doctor did you call, and why
did you call any, and what's the matter,
anyhow?" I asked.
"We called a doctor named Gordon
from the city. He happened to be at the
mill yesterday, and my husband knew
he stayed at the boarding house, so lie

Presently my cars were greeted with
an exclamation of surprise; and then
pressed laughter, some hurried admoni

There was a peculiarly wise light in
the eye of my hostess when I saw her

Then, rattling on in her chirp, easy
way, he began to tell me about "baby's
antics, which bad so amused the Doctor
that they'd all been laughing."
"But, didn't the Doctor come?"
'I UYes. Do you want to see 1dm?"
"Of course I do. If I' ve cot a doctor's
bill to settle on account of this spell of j
prostration, t want to see who it is mat's '
going to get the money."
Some extra touches were bellowed
upon my hair and a fold smoothed here
and there in my wrapper. Then the doc
tor was called.
There was a magnetism in the pres
ence of the man that inspired me with a
feeling of perfect peace. Life suddenly
opened tip to me in now and shady low
ers, and I felt intuitively that somehow
or other this physician was to turn the
current of my future life. There was a
quiet, gentle earnestness in his manner,
accompanied by a dignified deference,
that was perfectly irresistablc. The ex
pression of his eyes reminded me so for
cibly of my long-lo'it other self that I
could almost dream that I had found
him, and the voice was much the same;
but in no other particular except in stat
ure did he at all resemble the man whose
image had in the passing years been en
graven upon my heart. His beard was
long, heavy, coarse, and black as ebony.
His complexion was a deep nut brown,
and his raven hair, though curly, v.ts
coarse and bushy.
Reader mine, you needn't talk to inc
any more about the fickleness of women.
I have experienced it, and plead guilty.
I, who had for thirty years been faith
ful to one ovcr-mastcriug idea, had met
the enemy, and I was his.
I was desperately in love. Angrv as
1 wis at myself over the ridiculous fact,
it wxs no use struggling. I felt that I
had found my fate

deserve it all.
Under the magic influence of Dr. Gor
don's skill I became quickly convales
cent. I could not resist his quiet, gentle
commands and in a day or two rode in
his carriage to the city, where I found
my poor children in an agony of fear
lest mother's illness should prove more
serious than had been supposed.
Dr. Gordon sent the carriage home
and entered our lodgings with me. A
magazine lay upon the table containing
my latest literary production, heralded
by a flourish of editorial trumpets. The
Doctor read the essay silently, bjjt I
could see that he gave me frequent, fur
tive and searching glances, as though
deeply studying my thoughts.
At length he finished reading, and,
laying down the periodical, looked hard
at me and said:
"All this must be very gratifying to
"It would, perhaps, once have been so,
sir, but I have become so accustomed to
disappointment that I believe I am
hardly able to appreciate success."
"Ah, indeed? Have you then suffered,
as well as myself?"
"Suffered! Qh, Doctor!"

length, he bade me a stilTgood afternoon

appeared, wondering much at my own
strange sensations. I was absolutely
angry with myself for feeling such deep,
absorbing interest in the man.
"Judith Reid! you're a consummate
fool!" was my out-spoken and heart-felt
comment upon my own feelings ; but I
could not conquer them. I was so dis
turbed that this new revelation made
me nervous and unhappv.
Wxs I indeed standing upon a fearful
precipice, ready to cast myself headlong
into an awful crater or uncertainty?

l'raise of my literary success began to
"grow monotonous." I had had so much
of it, and had unwittingly learned so
much about how littlo is its intrinsic
value, that I grew deeply disgusted. If
it had not been that by my pen I was
comiielled to earn my children's bread I
should have given up my work. I lo.-t

and was in reality in a statcof as hopeless

the room where T was busy with my

Instantly the memory of that sweet

the words came feebly up, and in my
soul a jarring discord broke the harmony
of long-reinenibered happiness.
I intuitively felt that my letter con

for sonic time I tarried, not having cour
