They stray through tho sunlit, summery weather,
Tiro maids and a youth 'ncalh skies of blue,
Andoaehof llio three, as thoy walk together,
Is secretly wishing thcro wero but two.
Yet tho maidens lovo each other dearly,
And bolli lovo llio youth, If ho only knew i
Uut ho loves ono ns a swcot friend merely,
And t!io other ho loves as lovers do.
Slio who has won his heart's best pxsslon
(lives back n fancy, a passing whim :
Sho loves lilm only coquette fashion j
Whllo tho other luald-sho would dlo for hint.
And while they wander across tho meadows,
Their thrco hearts brimming with lovo's sweet
Fato Is sitting within tho shadows,
Weaving for them a tangled skein.
And sho shall weavo till Iho autumn weather,
When th' threads bhall unravel and all lomo
Uut well sholovcth to knot them together
And tangla tho ends for a time, doth Fnto I
8ho at whose feet Is cast that treasure,
A man's heart strong with love's full tide,
Shall uso It awhile as a thing of pleasure ;
Urulso It, and break It, anil cast It aside.
And she who Is loved as a sw eet friend only
Shall Und It bleeding upon the ground,
And being herself so sad and lonely,
Shall btrlvo through pity to heal tho wound.
And after a time, when she's hushed its grieving,
Sho shall tuko it w llh all Us wounds and scars,
And hldo It away In her breast, believing
Tls tho richest troasuro under tho liars.
Cut tho three walk on o'er tho sunlit meadows,
And dream all life Is a summer land ;
And they pass by ono who sits In tho shadows,
And see not tho webs In her bony hand.
And so wo all while the days nro Hitting
Plan out a future of Jojs and pains,
And see not Fate In tho shadows sitting,
Knotting and tying tho tangled skeins.
Tho vows wo vow w Ith a fond "Forever."
Tho pledge wo deem there can naught befall,
l'ato with n touch of her hand can sever.
Ah mo I 'tis tolly to plan ut .all.
Those that wo lovo may the soonest fall us t
Wo may grow to worship vvhero now wo hate.
And what do our plans and our dreams avail us i
Hotter to lciivo It nil with Fate.

"I don't know. Will you give me a lock

"If you open your mouth again, I'll pilch

from his chair with an impatient jerk, and
a look of positive annoyance came over his
ugly but good-natured countenance.
"Don't bo cross, Joe j I didn't mean to
bother you, old fellow," said Harry, peni
tently. "I'll go now j" nml tho handsome
boy picked himself up from tho bed where
he had been lying, and mado his way down
stain to his own room.
Joo crossed over to the mantel piece when
he was gone.and leaninglmelbow against it,
gazed long nnd earnestly at the sweet faeo
of a picture that hung there,
"Sweet littlo Mabel, should I havo made
such a fool of myself if you had loved me 1
What a weary world this is, my poor littlo

Joo turned moodily awav. and sat down

a poiiderous-lookiiig volume, proceeded to
luunerso nimselt lu tho dlllicult mathemati

After half an hour ho eavo Run. nml

bushy eyebrows contracted fiercely nhovo
tho deep-set eyes. With n steady, search

oppressive face beforo him , and then turned
tho picturo about In search of a name. Thero
it was, just as ho had expected to find it, in
tho firm, flowing characters which ho knew
so perfectly well "sincerely yours, Alice

"Good (lod I" muttered Joe, "what docs

ho took up tho note, written iu tho same
"At homo to you, dear Hurry, lo-nlglitut

"Then, that is whero ho ha? gone. Oh,
Harry 1 Harry! (lod help you."
Joe pat down on tho sido of tho bed, nnd,
hriiahieg tho falling hair back with his big,
awkward hand, set himself steadily to work
to find out whero his duty lay.
"All nf us I Harry, Mabel, and me. Rah!
I think the fiends exhausted their Ingenuity
when they invente'd tho torment called lov
ing. Poor boy ! poor Harry. How can I
tell him? how mako tho wretched story
sound less horrible?" Joo looked nt his
watch. Harry could not reasonably be ex
pected to return for two hours. He would
probably remain as long as Miss Rcinson
would permit him, thought Joe, bitterly ;
until the fascinating young huly wearied of
his ardcut devotion, and dismissed him witli
Enr the next hour Joo paced steadily up
and down Harry's room, h. heavy footfall
souuding through the houso. with u dull
monotonous regularity, and tho longer ho
thought of tho task beforo him, the greater
became his dread of it. Ho dreaded to set)
the changocomo over Harry's bright face,
the brilliant light fade from hia happy eyes,,
and tho rigid lines of i,ufl'ering replace, tho
laughing curves about his mouth. Poor
Joe! his trottblo was always about somebody
else. Ho thought his own powerful limbs'
and clumsy features were adapted to labor
and svTrow, but ho would havo liked to
claim immunity from suffering fur fliose ho
loved ; and Harry held a very warm place in
his heart, perhaps because he was Mabel's
Finally he scrawled a single line upon a
card, and left it where Harry would see it
wlicit he entered tho room.
"Cyme up lo my room .n boon as you re
Then he went quietly up stairs to his
own apartment, and unlocking a heavy desk
that stooil iu ono corner, took from it .1
bundle of letters tied carefully together with
a small piece of black crape. Placing tho
package on the table within reach nf his
hand, ho sat quietly down to wait It was
a bitter hour that ho passed sitting thero
wailing for tho return of the boy to whoso
bright hopes and happiness he was prepar
ing lo deal such a deadly blow. Would
Harry's trjendshlp for him survive the revo
lution he was about to make ? he asked him
self bitterly, and then an angry feeling rose
up iu thu hi-ait, that his should have been
the hand selected to deal out such misery to
his triend. Joe .shiveied when the clock
slruek twelve and simultaneously with its
solemn sound he heard the rattle of Harry's
"It must come ?" he muttered below his
breath, ".mil the sooner the better. Jf I put
it oil until to-morrow, it will be no easier to
tell or to hear."
In a moment Harry's light step sounded
on the stairs, and, Hushed with health aud
happiness, lie burst into tho room.
"What's tho row, Joe? Thought you
didn't believe in burning tho midnight oil ?
Surely your exciting researches into Newton
and Leibnitz haven't kept you up till this
hour? You ought to bo drcamiug about
our landlady's muffins and all the dear de
lights of to-morrow's breakfast. Phew ! I'm
tired," and Harry resumed his old position
on the bed
"I was rather rude to you this evening,
Harry, and I thought I'd Rko to tell you"
"Oh, bosh! is that what's tho matter?
You dear old boy, do you suppose I remem
bered il for a moment? I say, Joe, do you
know I think you tho best fellow in tho
world j fhcro never wm anybody quite so
quito so I don t know what I want to say
When a fellow is spooney on a girl, there's
a million ways of telling her ot it, but
when it's another fellow, why let's shake
hands," and Harry rolled over and placed
his hand in Joe's enormous paw.
"Qod bless you, Harry."
"Why, what on earth is llio mutter.
You're us solemn as if you were assisting at
tho funeral of all your friends and relatives
in a bunch."
"Harry, is Alico Rcinson tho girl of whom
you aro telling mo to-night ?"
"Of course sho Is. Sweet littlo Ally I
Thero couldn't bo two lil'o her in tho world,
Why, you don't know her, do you ?"
"I know of her."
"Then you must know that she's the
sweetest, dearest littlo O Lord I I forgot.
I'm an awful bore, Joo; I know it."
"Sho is two years older than you are,"
"And a woman is older than a man at tho
same age. Alico Rcmson is twenty-live."
"Well ? You don't intend to tell mo that
ii woman is increplt at twenty-five, do
"Alico Remson was a bello in New York
society before you had entered college."
"What of It?"
"I havo a story to tell you to-night.Harry.
Will you try and listen patiently, and not
hato mo when I havo finished? Shako
hands onco more, will you ? Yon may not
bo willing to when I havo done," and Joe's
strong hand enclosed Harry's moto delicate
one for a moment iu its firm clasp. Harry
was startled by the qulverliig.uiiccrtaln touo
In Joe's voico, and tho gentle way in which
ho laid his hand back on tho bed when ho
ceased holding it,
"Did you ever hear of Charley How
"Yes, I think so. Tho man who was
found drowned iu tho bay, wasn't he? There
was a great fins about it iu tho papers. I
was in tho country then, you know."
"Yes. You wero at homo then with vour
mother and Mabel, but was boarding here
lu tho samo room where I nm now. and
Charley Howard was on tho floor above us,
Ho was something like you, Harry, frank,

Wueueycr Charley went h0 i fnvorito
His unusual beauty and winning manners'
seemed to charm every one with whom ho
associated. I havo known a grc.it many men
In a long cotirsoof unlwrsltytlfc, but I have
never seen a handsomer or nobler-looking
young fellow than Charley llowafd. His
bright laughing eyes wero of a soft brown
color, matching tho hair that curled over his
low broad forehead, his mouth was a? softly
curved nnd gcnflo in its expression as a
woman. Jiut redeemed from all suspicion of
effeminacy by the long thick moustaches that
shaded it. Ho was tall and well-proportioned,
graceful in build, though not possessing
much appoaranco of muscular strength.
Charley was very fine-looking, although he
always gave an impression of elegance rather
than power, and his face showed a quick in
telligence, but not a strong intellect. Poor
fellow! had ho been endowed with lass
beauty and more mental force, ho had not
ended bo miserably. I have told you that lie
was a great favorite in society. It wa.'Tdn
ring tho j second year that I knew him wo
had been living hero together for al)6ut
eighteen months that ho canio liito my
room one night about 0 o'clock, In evening
dress, and told mo that ho was goln& to 'a
large party at tho house of Mr. Huntley,
his employer. It was thcro that ho met for
tho first timo Alice lieinson."
Who?" said Harry, in a sharp, con
strained tone. He began lo seo where .Trio's
story was tondlng.mhd a Hot, bitter feeling
of hatred toward bis friend surged up in his
"Eorgivo me, Harry. 'I 'would spare you
tho horrijl story if I could. It Is ns hard for
mo to tell as for you to hear. It Is only'tho
hope.tlmt the present' pnln I'nm inflicting
may save, you years ol" future vuirerihg that
enables ine to go on ;" and Joe's voice trcm-'
blctl us ho spoke. - 1
"Ho njet her for' the fust 'timo at) Mr.
Huntley' ijfbut after that,-as tho winter went
on, not a week passed that' he'did n6t spend
ono orlmtiro evenings at her side. At balls,
parties, o receptibns, Charley was her con
stant attt ndant ; ho'ivas her csccirt 'nt tlio
opera,; hi walked witlili'er fu'tliemornings,
and laterjin tho day rode with iber, iu tho
park. Their names wero always coupled to
gether iu tho current gossip of drawing
rooms, und the people would pauso to admire
tho handsome couplo as they passed them on
tho street or avenue. Charley's attention
was in a great measure drawn away from
his busiue 3 ; his salary was exhausted with
opera and concert tickets, carriage hire and
hot-house flowers ; and his devotion to Alice
Remson absorbed his timo und attention to
the exclusion of every other thought or in
terest. All other admirers fell away from
Alice's train to devoto themselves to some
one less preoccupied, nnd society began to
look upon them as belonging to each other
although no engagement was ever an
nounced." Harry's face w: turned awayjrom Joo ;
but the latter saw a slight shiver convulse
tho boy's frame, whilo one hand was tightly
clinched in the pillow undbr bis head.
When Joe ceased speaking Harry lay for
a few minutes motionless. His fierce pas
sion had subside d, und with a noble cfi'ovt
ho rallied his powers of endurunco aud self
control, to enable hiin to f.ico iu a manner
becoming a man, tho misfortune that had
fallen upon his life. Thou ho raised him
sell from tho bed in a weary, laborious man
ner, liko an old man. Ho took tho package
of letters from tho table, and shuddered as
his fingers came in contact with tho black
baud that held them together ; his brow
contracted with a btidden spasm of fain us

"Ono night Charley camo home, and
passing my room on his way tn Ids own,
stopped for a moment. I missed tho usual
buoyancy from his quick, clastic step, aud
the pleasant whistle that nearly always an
nouiicrd his coming. Looking up at him I
saw a sad, troubled look iu his handsome
eyes, and struck by tho change iu his man
ner asked him what whs tho mutter. It was
something so unusual to see him anything
but clieerlul antl happy.
'"I don't quito know, Joe,' ho answered
in tlio low sweet voice that was one of his
greatct attraction.!, 'Ally promised to bo at
homo to-night, and when I went to her
houso sho had gono out 'with a gentleman,
I was told.'
"Is that an cugagement, Charley?"
"I suppose I may toll you, Joo,' ho re
plied j 'hut tlio littlo lady will not havo it
"Why pot ?" I asked him.
"I don't know. You you don't think
sho can mean lo break her promise, do you
Joo J" ho asked, in rt troubled, heitatin
tune. 'Sho hasn't seemed quito tho samo to
mo lately.' And a heavy sigh broke from
his lips, aud thero was a slight evidenco of
tears iu the depths of his boft brown eves,
"That was the beginning of tho end. From
that night a change came over Charley. The
brilliant light in his eyes faded away, tho
sound ol ills footfall grew heavy and weary
as ho dragged himself hopelessly about, and
ins merry iwiistlo never woko tlio echoes in
the old bourding-houso again. Alico Rein-
son's falsehood and treachery had broken
his he.iit, and n few weeks afterwards cost
him his life.
"it is false as falso as hell 1" With a
sudden bound Hurry sprung from tho bed,
his eyes glowing with tho fury of a maniac.
With a sudden jerk ho seized .loo by tho
shoulder, and, dragging him to his feet,
threw him forcibly back agaiiut the wnll
with a resistless strength horn of tho mildness
of passion that ingulfed his tout. 'How
dare you toll mo such' a wild, false, wicked
lio ? Do yoju stand thero with such a vile,
base falsehood ou your lins and think that 1

Joo warded oil' tho fierco h'.aw that would
havo fallen on lihj head with his left arm,
and, exottlng tho full ktrength of Ids heavy
muscular franio pinioned Harry's arms to
his sido, and lifted him back to tho bed,
whero he held him by tlio forcDofono power

When morning ca'm'o Harry was, tho first
to appear. However severo tho struggle, it
was ended, j however fierco tho battle, it was
won., Thfcro was a sterner look about his
brow,! the frdllcsOiVio laugh was silenced for-
cver; but there was a calm, steady light in
his blue eVes and a nuiet manliness in bis
bearing that had never been there beforo.
Tho eager words of sympathy with which
Joo was prepared to greet him died beforo
they were spoken, and Harry was tho first
to break tlio silence.

of admiration that auiountod almost to rev
