began to arrange it in her hair.

"There, will that do ?"
She held her head on one side for me to
see the creamy rose nestling in her crisp dark
hair; but, alter a glance at it, I let my eyes
fall upon my desk, and went on writing my
pamphlet. I saw that she was looking wist
fully at me, but I paid no heed and she then
came and rested her hands upon my should

There was silence then for a few minutes,
only broken by tho scratching of my pen.
The little hands twitched a little as they lay
upon my shoulder, and I very nearly wiole
down, instead of "The calculations arrived
at by tho projectors of tontines"
'Ilichard Marlow, how can you ho such a
disagreeable wretch ?" Hut of course I did
not write it only thought and then I felt
wonderfully disposed to turn round, snatch
tho little graceful figure to my breast and
ki-s away the tears that I knew were gath
ering in her eyes.
Somehow or anotljcr though I did not do
it only went on glumly writing for I was
cross, worried and annoyed. I bad set my
self a task that necessitated constant appli
cation, and I was not getting on as I could
wish; so, liko many more weak-minded in
dividuals of tho male sex, instead of asking
for the comfort and advice of my wife, I vis
ited my disappointment upon the first weak
object at hand, and that object was the lady
"l'lease, Dick dear, don't bo angry with
me. l can t Help leeling very young ami
childish, though I am your wife, I do try,
oh ! so hard to bo womanly j but, Dick dear,
I'm only eighteen and a half."
"Thirteen and a half, I should say," I
said, scornfully, just as if somo sour spirit
were urging me on to say biting, sarcastic
things that I knew would pain tho poor girl;
but for tho life of me I could not help it.
I hero was no answer only a little sigh
and the bauds wero withdrawn.
I went on writing rubbish that I knew I
should have to cancel.
"Had you not better get ready, Dick ?"
said Mnttio soltly. "You said you would
como when I went up stairsand the WiUons
won't liko it If wo aro late."
"Hang the Wilsons ,'" I growled.
There was another pcuso filled up by the
scratch, scratch of the noisiest pens I ever
used, and another little sigh.
Mattic was standing closo behind mo but
I Uid not look round, and at last sho gently
glided to a chair and sat down,
"What are you going to do,"IsaId roughly.
"Only to wait for you, Dick dear," she re
plied. "ou need not wait. Go on. I shan't
come, bay I've, a tieadacno 6ay any.
"Dick, are you unwell?" she said tender
ly as sho came behind me once more, and
rested lie; little hand on my shouldir.
"Yes no. I'ray, don't bother I Go
on. I'erhaps I'll como and fetch you."
There was another pause.
"Dick, dear, I'd rather not go without
you," sho said meekly, at last.
"And I'd rather you did go without me,"
I said angrily. "Tho WiUous are our best
friends aud I won't havo them slighted."
"Then why not come, Dick dear?" said
the little woman, and I could see that she
was. struggling to keep down her tears.
"Hecauso I've no time for such frivolity,
Thero you've nastcd enough of wy time a!
ready, so go."
Scratch, scratch, scratch, went that ex
asperating pen, as 1 went on writing more

change my things, nnd accompany my little
wilo to the pleaant social Catherine a fe.w

She had been looking forward to the visit
as a treat. So had I till that gloomy fit
came over me ; hut as I had taken the steps
already made, I felt thnt I could not retreat
without looking foolish ; so I acted with that
uunl wNdom displayed by man under such
circumstances, ami made matters worse.
'Did you hear mc say that I wished you
to go alone?" I said angrily.
"es, yes, Dick dear.I'll go, If you wish,"
Mattln s ild very meekly ; "but Indeed I'd
fur rather star at home "
"Yon nre desire to go; you havo a rose

She looked at me with tho great tears

"Yes-no perhaps I don't know," I
said roughly, as I repelled her caresses ; and
then, looking wNtfully nt me.slie went slow
ly to the door, glided ut and was gone.
That broke the spell, and-1 started from
my seat, hut more angry than ever. I was
wroth with her now for obeying me so meek
ly, and I gently opentd the door, to hear her
call the maid and tell her to accompany her
as far as the Wilsons'.
Then 1 heard them go heard the girl re
turn, the donr close, and I was alone.
Alone? Well, not exactly, for, so to speak,
I was having an interview .with my angry
self, .Is I felt that I was, asking how I could
let a feeling of annoyanco act upon my bet

six months we had been married, bad never

"Change your things and go after her,"
something seemed to say j but I repelled it,

snatched my slippers out of the sideboard,
thrust tho easy. chair in front of the cosy
fire, threw myself into it, and then with my
feet on the fender, and my hands in my
pockets I sat, morose, hitter and uncom
fortable, gazing at the glowing embers.
"She had no business to go 1" I exclaim
ed, "rihe knew I was up all last night,,

at last 1 sat thero calling myself ass, idiot,

tree of dis-ensinn, and blight the whole of
our married Ie.

I sat on, musing and musing till suddenly
there was a buzz outsido of the house, then
a rush of feet. I fancied I heard tho word
"Fire!" repeated again aud again, and turn
ing to the window, there was a glow which
lighted up the whole place.
I dashed down stairs and nut of tho door,
to find the road thronged, for a house a lit

horror, I had not taken a dozen steps before

Thero was no time for thinking ; so I
climbed In, lifted Maltin in my arms, feel
ing her dress crumble in my hands as I
touched her, nnd the horrible odor of burnt
hair roso in my nostrlU, and saw her wild
and blackened face turned to mine.
'Dick, Dick I" sho gasped, "save me I"
and then she fainted.
Fortunately I was as much at home In the
hou.'o as In tny own, and making for the
stalrc.no through the tlatno nnd smoke, I
reached it in safety; but below mo was what
seemed to bo a fiercely blazing furnace
I recoiled for a moment, but it was my
only hope, and I recalled that the lower
floor was as yet untouched by the fire; It
was tho one beneath mo that was blaztng so
So, getting a good tight grip of my treas
ure, I rushed down the burning stairs, feel
ing them crackle and give way as I bounded
from one to the other.
It was a fiery ordeal ; but in a few sec
onds I was below the flames, and reached
it, and fell.
If I could but open it, I knew wo were
saved. Hut I was exhausted, and the hot
air c.iught mo by tho throat and scorned to
strangle me. I raised my hand to tho lock,
but it fell bAck. I beat feebly at tho door,
but there was only the roar of flames' to an
swer mo; and as I made ono more supreme
cllort, panting and struggling to reach the
fastening, I was, as it wero, dragged hack-
by the weight of the burden I still clasped
to my breast.
It was more than human endurance could
dc.u, and I felt that tho end was near; aud,
to mako my sufferings moro poignant, Mat
tie seemed to revive, struggling with me
tor her life, as she kept repeating my name,
aud clung to me, till
"Dick dear Dick! wake'; pray, wake!
Are you ill ?"
I started up, to find llattie clinging to
me, and clasping her tightly to my heart, a
great sob burst from my breast as I kissed
her passionately again nnd again, hardly
able to believe my senses.
"Oil, Dick," she panted, "you did fright
en me so I I couldn't stay to supper at the
Wilsons,' dear ; fori could do nothing but
think about your sitting here, alone, and

home, to find you lying back here, panting
and struggling; jou wouldn't wake when I

"Oh no ; not at all," I said, as I kissed
her again and again, feeling now for the first
time sensible of a smart pain in one foot.
"You've burnt yourself too, Dick; look
at your foot.
It was quite true: the toe of one slipper
must have been in contact with the fire; and
it was burned completely off.

Petersburg, a black domino accosted Prince
D , an officer of the Atamiuski regiment
of Cossacks, in theso terms : "I love you,
Prince, will you love me?" "Why not?

your promise ; I retire, and In two years, you
will seo me." "Two years ?" "Yw, In two
years I will be your wife." "My wife in two
yearn?" "Certainly." "Am I affianced
then ? Is it to a demon or an angel?" And
he broke out into a new laugh, for he took
tno adventure for a joke. The unknown

eighteen, a beauty, a pearl, a masterpiece of
nature, recently nrrlved from St. Petersburg.
After somo days ho remarked that tho young
Princess did not look upon him with indiffer
ence. Their intimacy increased. Ono fine
evening, or one fine morning, she said lo
him, "Prince I love you ; lam rich; marry
me." The unfortunate Prince wasionfound-
cd ; then summing up his courage ho frank
ly told her his situation.
"Oh I" exclaimed the Princes? ; "I know

It was thus that she had signed her letters
to that date. On the 12th Prince D

She bad left St. Petersburg at the same time
with tho Prince, and hail fixed herself at
Kicbcneff, whence she sent to a confidauto
the letters which the lover was to continue to
receive from the capital. Thanks lo this
subterfuge, she had been able to have herself
presented to the Prince, and lo easily play
a double part. As to the denouement, you
