Instantly 1 was up nml nway. Tlioy
showed ino n beautiful country.ecat sur-
rounded by gnrdciis Inld out with grcnt
tiiste. "There fihollvesl" I trembled
npiln ns I hnd formorly dono when n
llctitonnnt, nnd as I novor had d no be
fore tho Turks.
I Rot out of the carriage. Already I
saw tho lovely one, and how full of
licavoniy grace and emotion alio would
receive mo. Ah 1 woman's heart 1 Doc9
fcho lovo mo still? thought I, and pro
ceeded with an uncertain step through
Ueforo tho houso, under an arbor of
blooinlnc red acacias, sat two elderly
Indies, nnd two young ladles. Thoy
were rending. IUit Sophia I saw not.
I apologized for the Interruption I
had occasioned j for thoy all seemed
surprised nt my sudden appearance.
"Whom do you wish to see?" nsked
one of tho elderly ladles.
"'JIny I have the honor to pay my re-
spocts to tho Countess Sophia of Obfii-
dorf?" said I.
"I mn ."lie," replied to my amaze
ment the lady wh(fappoared to be somo
what near forty. I felt ns if I should
Imvo an nttack of vertigo.
"Penult mo to sit down ; I am not
well I" sighed I ; nnd seated myself
without waiting for an answer, what
a change! Whither had flovcn tho moft
bloomingof all beauties? Ths Illusion
passed away j 1 bethought my-clf of a
((unrtcr of a century. It was Hophin,
yew, it was she 1 but tho frilled Sophia.
To whom have I the honor to speak?"
asked she. Alas! sho xnuw me no but
ter than 1 knew her.
1 wished to avoid n scone bifore the
two ladies, and thereforo begged font
short tete-a-tete. Tho countess led mo
into tho bonse, and then into a largo

The countess stood near mo, embar
rassed, nnd apparently alarmed at my
declaration. I wished to reieaso her
from her painfnl situation, and yet
could not speak. A feeling of sadness
had completely overpowered mo.
"You nro not well, sir?" said the
countess, and sho looked uneasily to

"Oil no!" sighod Ij "do you not know
She now Hied her eyre more earnest

years ago ? I lmvo kept It faitltfully

I called for help to tho ladles, who
were alirmed at tho sight of their friend
in a fainting fit, and a strange oilleer
kneeling before her in tears. I3ut be

forth i nhe subbed as if'she were iiicon--ohible,
threw her arms ari'iind my
neck, and ealleil mo by name.
Knoiigh, gentlemen, that was a mo
ment ! Angels might havo wept over
us. I had no thought of taking my
leave. The countess received mo as a
guest. Oh, how much had we to say
to iiu'h other, how faithfully she hail
loved me! What tho colonel oneo pre
vented, neither ho imr his family could
prevent any longer. Sophia became
my wife; somewhat lato It Is true, but
yet not too lato ; our souls still loved
with youthful fervor. My history, or

Only in tho midst of it all, tho nauio of

Tho colonel's carriage was announced.
"You must not think of going," said
tho councillor; "I cannot lot you go In

"I beg you to spend this night with

You must not go. I Imvo something

add so uueoiiaciously, and at tho sauiu

You resided in tho -amo hotel. You

Tho conversation now became more
genernl until the company broke up.
Tho lieutenant-colonel went homo with
me, and I conducted htm Immediately
to his room.
"And now," said he, "I havo thus far

I began about Vienna, about tho aunt,

I then told him of my second jpurnoy

For you see I havo nothing to say

To-morrow wo will' ride out to my

and become acquainted with my Sophia,

We .oparatod; I went to bed, but
could not bleep without feverish dreems.
' oini', Mr. Walter, out with tho

tho following morning at breakfast; "I

"That's not it, Sir, where mind and

yet tho countess Sophia loved me."
"What then Is wanting '"asked I.
"That I will tell you now, because,

"That is hard !" sighed I ; "but aro
you sure of it?"
"Wo will go out to-day to my coun

After many pros and eons I took my

I began to perceive that my Imagina
tion might havo been playing mo a
trick. As long as I lived alono in my
love-dreams, I becamo sei Intimate with

such unearthly charms, I painted her
for that my enthusiasm could easily

first moment I exchanged a word upon
tho statu of my heart with it third per

It was a beautiful morning lu June,
when wo set out for tho resldeneo of

I bowed respectfully to tho old lady
of threescore, who had bceomo very In
torcstlngto mo through tho narrative of

my heart, "what aro youth and beau

experienced old soldier read In my eyes
tho meaning of my sigh. For ho pressed-his
wife's hand to his Hps, nnd said,
laughingly, 'Is It not so, my dear?
When one see.s old ladles and gentlo-
men, ono can hnrdly convince himself
that thoy havo oneo been young; and

Josephine's aunt recognised me as
quickly ns I did her. She said many
obliging things to me. c sat down
to the table, and took a second break
fast for tho sako of tho ladles' company.
"And where does Josophiuo keep her
self?" asked tho old man ; "sho will bo
glad to renew her Vienna .acquaint
ance." "Sho Is out In tho gardon with Count
Ilolton to enjoy theaurlculas before tho
sun Is too high," replied her aunt ; and
here I got n little chill. Ail my old
Imaginations wcro over. I collected
myself instantly. I never hud had any
claims hero; and so I had nono to lose.
I began to bo almost iishamcd of tiio
follies of my hoart nnd of tho tricks of
my imagination. I became lively, fell
in with the merry tonoof tho company,
and even related to tho nunt how pain
fully I had missed her upon my second
visit to Vlonnn.
During tho conversation a young
man entered of a noblo mien. Mis
countenanco was pale, bis eye's dark
and gloomy, his manner stiange and
"Ladies," said lie, iu a hasty nud sub

speech, "permit me to take my leave

Thu colonel turned nud looked fixed

"No," replied he, with n forced smile.

hands, embraced the colonel, and rusl
cd out of the houso without saying an
other word. Tho colonel followed him
In all haste. Tholadies were greatly em

was their neighbor Count Holten; that
too evening tioforo, us ho had often dono,

appeared very happy an hour 'before,
and wns now no moro llko himself.

"That is as pcoplo tako it !" replied
he; "It Is a long story, buttlie count told
it in I wfi or throo words: 'f loved and

-J ii t then the door opened, and Miss
Von Tarnau entered. It was she, and
more lovely, more beautiful than .vhen
I saw her in Vienna, moin i.raceful
than in my dreams. I aro-o, but when
I would approach her, my knefs trem
bled, I was rooted to the spot I Htam
mered out some disconnected words I
was at oneo the most nappy and Ihe
most miserable of mortals.
Josephine stood nt tho door blushing
deeply ; she gassed at me as at an appar
ition, and then recovering from her
surprise, smilingly approached tho ta
blu ufter tho llrst exchange of saluta
tions; tho riddle of our unexpected
meeting was solved. I related how I
hud learned her whereabouts only tbo

hud bought tho Moravian estate, and
had settled down heroin tho midst or

"Al" aunt, dear aunt!" cried she,
tnklng her aunt's hand In both hers,
and pressing it to hor heart, whllo sho
threw upon mo a look which sparkled
with no doubtful Joy, "did not I tell
you so ? Was I not right ?"
Tho good aunt smiled, and cast a si
Icnclug look upon Josephine. Mer
mother cast her cyon down to conceal u
certain embarrassment. Mer old father
looked Inquiringly from one to thu oth
er, arote, and whispered lu my ear
witli a loud voice: "Mr. Walter, 1
guess you havo found tho beau in tho
right place- ut last. Hut you Josephine,
wlmt havo you dono to Count Molten,
that ho has gone offin such a fury?"
Josophiuo answered ovnslvely. Wo
all aroso and wont into tho garden. Tho

ows, Ileitis, outhouses, btubles, Ac,
whilst tho ladies were In lively conver
sation In thu bummerdiuuse. After a
tedious half hour wu returned to them
from tills doinestlo survey. The old
gentleman was called aside, and Joso
phiuo left to entertain me.
1 Intended to bo very rtterved to
wards Josephine, I was afraid ol tho
futo of Count Molten. Wo spoko of our
acipialulant-o In Vienna, of our former
intercourse, walks, and vurious little
incidents. "Ah !" cried Josephine, "If

And now how could I havo dono
otherwise? now I told her my wholu
story, my second Journey toVlennn,my
possession of her apartments -und over
more softly, over moro timidly tho
finding of tho lioin rny return to my
native city tho hi dory of tho evening
before. Hero I paused. I did not dare
to look up. I played In tho sand with
my foot. Joscphlno'f) slloneo lasted a
At last I thought I heard a sob. I
lookod up. She had hidden her face iu

voleo I asked, "For heaven's sake, Miss
Josephine, has my frankness dlsploM.

Sho let tho handkerchief fall, nnd
looked nt mo smiting through her tears.
"Is it all truo?" she asked, after ft
pause. I tore tho bean from my neck,
and hold It up before her, with the
words, "Here Is my witness."
She took tho bean, as If from curiosi
ty, merely to examine tho setting, ncr
tears flowed still more freely. Loaning
on my arm, sho laid her forehead on my
shoulder, and whispered, "I bolicTo In

I clasped tho lovely creature to my
heart, and cried, "Now I could d!o!"
Sho looked up at mc alarmed.
Tho voices of persons npproaehlng
through the shrubbery warned us to go
and meet thorn. Josephine still had
tho bean In her hand when wo stood
before her parents. The colonel saw it,
