"What! Closeted with a Uxik onTiucli
a lovely May morning as luls? Why, I
have been everywhere looking for you.
What ilo you Ray to a good gallop on
horseback? Come, it will do you good,"
and the merry-hearted Blanche Levere,
already attired for a ride, pushed wide
open the door of her friend's boudoir, as
she walked in anil seated hen-elf near
the open window, with the familiarity
of an old friend. "Come, get ready, and
I will wait"
"Well, since you have taken the
trouble to ride over here after me, I will
go, though I was very much interested,1'
answered Sonora Hewitt, as she laid
down her Iwok and arose to prepare for
a ride. "But where do you intend go
in ?

she is an excollont fortune toller, aud V
am going to Have mine told, be it good
or bad."
"You surely do not believe in fortune
telling, Blanche?" asked Sonora, as she
adjusted the skirt of her habit
"Why, no, I cannot soy that I really
do, but I should like to hear what the
old lady has to say, just for the novelty
of it. Will you have yours told ?"
"I will go with you, but I will not
have mine told. I am not anxious to
know the future, and besides I think it
very wrong. If God had intended us to
know what was in store for us he would
have revealed it, but in an all wise prov
idence He hid futurity, and wo should
not try to pry into it," answered Sonora,
as she followed her friend to the door.
"Oh, you little parson,1' said Blanche,
laughing, "you always see everything
in a different light from me. I wish
Miss Levere could imbibe some of your
good sense."
"Be boss am ready, missus,".said
Sampson, poking hiswoolly head in at
the front door as they descended the
"Why, I had forgotten to order my
horse. I must bo absent minded in
deed," said Sonora, turning to Blanche.
"Oh, I took upon myself the responsi
bility to tell Samp, as I came in, that if
I was not down stairs iu live minutes to
have Jetty ready for you."
"Well, I'm obliged to you for your
thoughtfulness," said Sonora, as Blanche
placed her tiny slippered foot within
Samp's black palm, while with a spring
like one accustomed to equestrian exer
cises she seated herself upon the saddle.
Then, helping his young mistress to
mount, he handed her the reius, as he
stepped back looking as proud as if he
had done some notable act. In a few
moments the horses, -with thoir fair rid
ers, -were lost to sight by the grand old
trees which skirted the road on both
sides for a distance of three miles.
Having introduced our heroine and
her friend to the reader, wo will inform
them of something pertaining to their
Sonora Hewitt was the only daughter
of her parents. Her father, Col. Hewitt,
was in every sense of the word a gentle
man. Having won glory upon the, battle
field, he was now, in the meridian of his
days, enjoying the society of his family,
together with that wealth which he had
labored hard to achieve. For his city
residence he had built him a spleudid
mansion, opposite Graimnercy park,
New York, and surrounded as he was bv
all that wealth could procure, might
havo been perfectly hnppy as far as this
world is concerned had in not leen for
his wife. She was one of those haughty,
high-minded women who look upon
wealth and station as first in all the at
tainments of life. Possessing a hand
some face aud a few accomplishments,
she had won the heart of her husband,
who, like too many othor young men, bad

Ing that beneath lay a disposition yet to
bo tried, but believed the beautiful girl
who appeared so amiable before him
could never change. Alas for human
nature! Too late he found out hti error.
The first three years of their married
lifo they had spent in traveling, and it
was not until after the birth of their
only son Harry that the Colonel deter
mined to settle down and enjoy life in
the bosom of his family.
Four years later, when his home was
gladdened by the birth of the little So
nora, his joy knew no bounds. Now,

noted, her vain hopea and plans were
centered in her, and she determined to
train her up to that life of which felie
was so fond, audio form for her a bril
liant alliance, and thereby bring credit
and hohor, as she thought, upon herself.
But how she succeeded iu her plans our
Mory will show.
Sonora Inherited her father's disposi
tion, combined with her mother's beauty.
She possessed a firm, sound mind, while
she was loving, gentle and amiable.
She would never yield a point wherein
sIiq knew hcrseir to 1ms right, but in
maintaining her own will she did it
with such unobtrusive kindness that
nhe seldom gave offense. From early
childhood she had shown traits of an
extraordinary mlnd':nnd sho -was not
only fond of storing il with the good
and useful of earth) but sho also took a
deep iuterest in religion. Xothing gave
her greater pleasure than to sit and lis
ten to the sublime aud beautiful doc
triuesof ourLonl.
At the time our story opens she was
just entering her seventeenth year. She
was of medium height, with a form
fully developed. Her complexion was
of that transparent white without spot
or blemish, with just enough color in
her cheeks to give greater brilliancy to
her lovely eyes; and herein lay her
greatest personal charm. They were of
that dark blue which at times can
scarcely be distinguished from black,

Her lashes on her checks in silken fringes lay.
Eliewas directly opposite in contrast
to her friend Blanche Levere. Though,
like Sonora, Blanche had been the onlv
daughter,-she had alsobecn the onlv
child. She had been left an ornlmn nf
the early age of three years. She had
been left to the care of her maternal
grandparents, who, by doing all in their
power to promote her welfare and hap
piness, endeavored to console themselves
for the loss of their last child, her moth
er. She was a tall, finely formed girl,
about a year and a half older than her
friend. Her hair of raven blackness fell
in curls to her waist, while her eyes
were of the same midnight hue, and
would twinkle when she laughed, which
spoke truly of the merry heart beneath.
cs, Blanche had a heart as light and
free as the gentle breeze of summer.
She had never known a sorrow, for.
though an orphau, she had never real
ized it, so faithfully had her kind grand
parents fulfilled the trust reposed iu

Blanche had completed her education
a year before, but Sonora was still an
Inmate of Madame C 's school. Hav
ing a vacation of a few weeks, she, with
the rest of the family, had gone to their
pieasam, country seat at Bridgeport.
Conn., whither they went at tho return
of each summer, and here it was that
Blanche lived.
This was the first year that Sonora
had gone when the rest of the family
had, generally coming at tho close of
July, but they had lea the city earlier

mat sue siiouid accompany them. He
wished her to.see nature unfold herself,

always bring to the mind the wonls of
good John Ilodgers, "Build not your
house too high, but always have before
your eyes that you were bom to die."
Thought. Hewitt, or Colonel (as he
was always called) was not a professor
of religion, still he was a strictly moral
man, and held iu great reverence all
that pertained to the Holy and Divine.
The morning that we introduced our
fair heroine to the reader was one of un
clouded splendor in the blooming month
of May. Xaturo was adorned in her
richest garb. 'Hie trees laden with blos

After parlaking.of breakfast and ar
ranging a boquet upon her mother's
dressing. table, a.Jiabit which she had
followed from childhood, Sonora had
taken a lavorite book and gone to her
boudoir for a perusal of It alone, where
she was found by her friend soon after,
as we have seen.
Blanche, who never let a pleasant
morning "pass without a ride upon her
noblo white horse, Beauty, had called
for her friend, detcrmiuing to have her
enjoy herself also, for a horseback ride
to her was at aII.liuie3I,refera0,e to a
book, and she meant, if possible, to
make othcrs.thlnk so too.
The home of Blanche was a noble old
mansion, whose massive pillars reached
from the 'roof to llie 'floor of the com
fortable piazza, which, extended around
three sides of the house, and whose floor
had vibrated to the treadof merry young
feet years before The. cozy old oak set
tee, which looked so inviting, had lis-
tened to many a tale of love from youth'
ful Hps, long since silent in that sleep
which wakes ouly to immortality
Blanche's mother had played there
when a child with numerous brothers
and sisters around her; there she had
plighted her vows lo tho man of her
choice, aud there, at the close of a warm
summer's evening, had alio closed his
eyes in death, little thinking that in a
few short months she should follow; but
so It was, and need it be wondered at
that Blanche was attached so deeplv lo
the home of her childhood?
She had often heard her grandmother
tell how her mother had had her fortune
told, and tyie was very eager to haver
her own fold. also. Her grandmother's
ever-ready reply to her questioas was,
".My child, seek not to ifriow the future
evil, but be content with tho present
good." But Blanche was determined to
find out tho evil, If there were any, and
at last persuaded her grandmother to let
her go to old Katy's. This old woman
lived about five miles from Captain
Marsh's, In a miserable little out-of-the-way
hut. She appeared to be of Indian
descent, though none knew anything of
her nor when she came. She apparent
ly subsisted by her art, and had nearly
bewitched most of the young people of
the neighborhood. Let us take a peep
in while our friends are there. Seated
at a small pine table sits old Katy. A
neat bandana handkerchief tied round
her nicely combed head answered the
place of a turban. Another handker-
chlefjWhose whiteness rivaled the suow,
was pinned nicely across her shoulders,
mhwu a rcuaim oiacK striped petticoat.
reaching to her ankles, covered by a
check apron of nearly the same length,
completed her attire. Iu one hand she
held a deck of cards, while upou the
other rested her head. In this ixsition
she sat eyeing her visitors for at least
live minutes. Sonora sat upon a low
stool near tho door, while Blanche was
seated at the tabic, opposite Katy.
"fto you do not believe Katy, hey,
miss ."' and she laughed, showing a row
of teeth which many a bcllo would have
envied, as she cast a piercing glance at
"Not exactly that I do not believe
you," answered Sonora, trembling as
she spoke, more at the look than the
question, "for I know nothing of you,
but I do not boheve in fortune telling."
"Well, well, I'll tell the black-oyed
lady's fortune that will do as well.
Yes, indeed, 'twould be but one. What
Katy says comes true. You'll believe
her one of these days," and the old
witch gritted her teeth as she struck the
tabic with the palm of her hand with
such force that a glass of water sitting
upon it fell to the floor, breaking tho
lass and spilling tho contents on
Blanche's dress. "Ha!, ha! ha!" almost
screamed the old woman, as. she wiped
on me water with a towel. Then hold
ing it up to her visitor's gaze, "See that
color from your dress, hey? So your
life the brightness will all be washed
out," and reseating herself, took the
hand of Blanche within her own, as she
began :
"Yonr life lias lcon one summer's day;
But one thins dark has marred theiray;
Your parents ImhIi, when youn; and fair,
Uled, and left you to tho care
Of thoe who (rave your mother breath,
And tried through love toliafflc death. '
For eighteen years you've wandered on.
With flowers 'round your pathway itrown.
Twice moro'll return youru'alal day.
Xoir, believe me, girl, what I shall say:
You'll meet with one whoe gentle eye
Your lovin? heart with pain will try;
Toward her whom you your sceret tell
Your breast with wicked thoughts will swell.
Against whose liapplnesx you'll plot, to blast
Her dearest Joy of life at lat.
Hut how will you stieeeed? Ah, here's tho ex
planation: Hetributiou will o'ertake theo.and banish all
in contemplation;
Sickness, that vile destroyer, will lay theelpw,
And friends, with all that wealth can'tlo'io
raise thee no! .. r
Kordeath, with hU relentless hand, ,
Before twent years will Join thee to the Heav

"Are you satisfied, girl?" asked slie,
as she finished, and rising, walked to
wards Sonora.
Standing directly In frout.of her she
said, "Think not too harshly of old
Katy, for a time will come when she
shall prove a true friend. Go In peace,
my child," and muttering something
sho opened the door for her guests to de
part. Tho girls, only too glad of the oppor
tunity, hastily left, Blanche dropping a
a piece of gold into Katy'.s hand as she
passed out
"Oh, I am so glad .we are rid of her
presence once nV6re!" w;as Fonora's first
exclamation as they rodd towards home.
"She fairly made me tremble when she
looked at me. I never saw such eyes!
win you noi agree with me, dear
Blanche, that fortune telling is not onlv
a sin, but also aigreat worrimcnt to our
own peace, for I must confess I do not

your remark I agree, for somehow I feel
rather fidgety myself, but pshaw! I do
not believe any thing she said.- Accord
ing to her prophecy, I am to become
your rival, for you are tho only friend to
whom I tell my secrets," and Blanche
gave a nervous jerk to her reins, while
her countenance betrayed a tumult of
feelings within.

"There, hush, Harry. Jlemember I

"Indeed I have. I rushed up and em

for a walk to examine some of the beau

so during tho six. mouths that I ha-c

well known laugh of Blanche, whom I
might say was your shadow. How very

"Yes; do you no't think she has im

one variety with a very large leaf, that

frightens me hi talking about weeds;
but weeds always como up, don't they ?
Dear Orlaudo! I come back to him
again so excellent temperate, and
true. Tell all the girls to marrv as soon
as they can, if they can find a husband

on again.
I had a terrible fright tho other night
dreadful. Orlaudo hail told me that
business I think he said it was a easo
of life and death would detain him late.
So I sfit up as usual, with a book, and
did not worry until 1 o'clock. After
that I was a little anxious, I confess,
and caught a cold in my head peeping
through the uiKtairs window blinds:
I for dear aunt, it was not until 3 o'clock

"Oh, what has.happened?" cried I.
"Don't be frightened, Mrs. White?"
said Mr. Smith, "Nothing at all; only
White is a little exhausted. Applica
tion to business will exhaust a man,
aud I thought I'd bring him home."
"All right, Boll," said Orlando, Smith
tells the truth rni exhausted."
And, dearest aunt, he was so much so,
that he sioke quite thick, and couldn't
stand up without tottering. Smith was
kind enough to help him up-stairs; and
he 1.13 upon the bed so prostrated tliat I
thought lie was going to die. Then I
remembered the French brand3' 300
gave 1110 in case of sickness. I ran to
get it out
"Have a little brand and water,
dear?" I said.
"The very tiling. Smith is exhausted,
too. Give some, to Smith," said he.
And so I reproached 'ni3self for not
having thought of It before Smith' was
gone. But I grfvo a glass -to Orlando,
nnd under providence, I think it saved
his life; for, oh, how bad lie was!
"Bell," said he, quite faltering in his
speech, "the room is going round so
fast, that I can't catch 3our e3e.
Aud besides there's two of 3011, and I
don't know which is which."
I knew these were dreadful symp

the morning. I'm all right uow.
Here's 3'our health. You-rc- a brick.

Oil, wli3 do 3-011 think so much of
money making? Is not health better
than anything else.
Of course, as he had Iain down his hat,
I took that oft first And I managed to
