Bach year that passes and each hour begun i
All moments marked upon time's dial face,
To yield effective blessings tor our raco
Should some good record bear, somo action dono,
That, registered, shall shlno as doth the sun,
Whero life's Immortal ono tho page shall trace
And scan the deeds no blight nor blot erf ace.
Koch In U10 cluster, a bright bentaon,
Shall tell how on this earth somo aching heart
Woo gladdened, as new hope roso In the breast
And bado the night ot doubt and woo depart,
And peace enduring enter with its rest
So then good deeds are never cast away l
They live to crown our brighter, holler day.
Just a picture of somebody's child,
Sweet face set In Its golden hair,
Violet eyes and cheeks ot rose,
Rounded chin, with a dimple there.
Tender eyes where the shadows sleep,
Lit from within by a secret ray,
Tender eyes that will shlno Uko stars,
When lovo and womanhood como this way.
Scarlet Bps with a story to tell t
Blccsed bo ho who shall find It out I
Who shall learn the eyes' deep secret well,
And read the heart with never a doubt I
Then you will tremble, scarlet Hps I
Then you will crimson, lovllest cheeks 1
Eyes will brighten and blushes will burn
w hen the ono true lover bends and speaks.
But she's only a child now, as you see ;
Only a child In her careless grace ;
When love and womanhood come this way
Will anything sodden the aower-llke face ?
"It is your own fault, Edmund," said
Mrs. Latimer to her son, who was pac

their cottago home in tho suburbs of a

used when a boy, hoping for tho old
sympathies and advice, but receive only

"I shall not always harp upon this
disagreeblo subject, my son ; but before
I can give counsel I must make you sco
with ray eyes all tho errors of your
past life. My sympathies "
bue paused, and there was tho trem
ble of tears in her voico as she glanced
up into the handsome brown oyes of
her son. The look brought him to her
sido ; and they sat in close confidence,
with hand clasped in hand, and talked
of the fortune lost, the beautiful home
seized by creditors, and of their sad fu
ture prospects.
"Vou will accept Unclo Jeptha Pod
ham's proposition !" said Mrs. Latimer
at last.
"With all the conditions mother!
You know that would bo impossible 1"
he replied.
"How impossible! questioned his
mother. "You surely understand what
Uncle Jeptha says V
Then taking up a letter she read :
" 'If my nephew be still silicic, and
with untramniflcd affections, I will pay
him a liberal salary to travel with me
as courier, companion and friend. I
shall expect him to take entire ehargo
of my tiuaneial matters, and to devote
himself entirely to me for tho remain
der of my life. And in addition to tho
regular salary, I will bind myself to
leave him, at my death, my entire es
tate, amounting to several hundred
thousand dollars.'
"Well," continued Mrs. Latimer.
when sho had finished reading, "there
is no reason upon earth why Mary
should not relinquish all claim upon
you during tho remainder of your
uncle's life.
"You cannot mean that I shall di
vorce myself from my wife ?"
"Only while it is necessary for your
interests You know Mary's require
ments, and that you aro left with only
your hands to supply them."
"Yes, and henceforth ray life would
bo that of a dog!"
"There is no disguising tho fact, Ed
mund, that you and Mary at tho best
are not happy together."
The young husband groaned, and his
baudsome head fell upon his hand. At
that moment the conversation was in
terrupted by tho cutrance of another.
It was a rather stout, black eyed,
rosy young person, dashing in manner,
her rich silk robo trailing over the
modest, ingrain carpet. With a heavy
sigh she threw herself into a seat and
fixed contemptuous glances upon moth
er and son.
"I should hko to know," sho ques
tioned, "how long wo are to remain
hero pensioners upon tho bounty of
Mrs. Latimer while you do nothing,
Ho made known the proposition of
his uncle to her, and sho responded :
"You will of course accept it!"
"And livo a lie !"
"I havo no potienco with sentiment
where ono's bread is concerned !" sho
nnawered haughtily nml with curling
lip. "You give your services to that
old, nccentrio unolo nntrammoled 1
Then, for goodness sake, go 1 I release
you for tho natural term of tho old
innn's life, so you send mo money
enough to keep me from pauperism,
and share with mo the fortuuo when it
becomes yours."
"Mary, think again 1 We must sop

"Very well as I told you before, I
would not givo a rush for sentiment if
it stood between myself aud advance
ment or a fortune."
There was little moro argument need
ed i and silencing every scruple, young
Latimer wont forth, as Mary said, to
seek his fortune it having been ar
ranged that his wifo should remain
with his mother, whore she should re
celvo means to beautify tho plaoo and

tho tears out of his little, sunny, bluo

Edmund forced a laugh, as ho repli
ed :
"Trust me, uncle 1 I am dead to all
that kind of weakness 1"
"Been bit, havo you, hey ! ' chuckled
the old man.

Tlio next outward bound steamer
convoyed away old Jenthn Podhara and
his nephew, Edmund Latimer.
"As wo haven't anybody to wave
handkerchiefs to, Ned, if you'll help
mo down below, I'll turn in and get
somo rest 1" said tho old man, as thoy
steamed out of the harbor.
Accordhierly tho old Gentleman did
not eeo any of tho passengers until tho
next day. Then, as ho was taking n
turn on tho deck, leaning upon tho arm
of his nephow, ho ran against a tall,
gaunt man, in an invalid chair, whoso
servant was attempting to make him
comfortable by winding him up in in
numerable wraps.
"Zounds ! ray foot 1" exclaimed Pod
ham. "Why, bless my soul, if it isn't
Martin Dinsmoro I" and tho next in
stant the two were shaking hands,amid
ejaculations and questions without
"Ave you alone, Martin !" wns asked.
"No, Jeptha: Itosa and her maid
aro with me."
"You don't say liltlo Rosa is here !
sho and I aro old lovers 1" laughed
"Y'es j I wanted her to come on
deck ; but she is seasick, and wouldn't."
"But she must 1" exclaimed Padkara.
"Here, Edmund, you go down and
bring the child up!"
His nephew at onco went below, and
to his amaxementjfound a lovely young
lady, heavy eyed and pale, curled up
on a sofa, her maid batliing her golden
head with cologne. The situation was
extremely awkward for Edmund ; but
he managed to introduce himself; and,
with the assistance of her father's valet,
soon made her comprehend tho state of
affairs on deck, and the mandate "of her
old friend Podham.
Sho signified her willingness to bo
transported! and robed in soft furs
and shawls, sho leaned upon tho arm of
Latimer, and ascended to tho deck
tho valet and maid following with arm
fuls of cushions.
"Bless my soul!" exclaimed Podham ;
"this isn't tho child that sailed with mo
down the Nile four years airo ! Whv
didn't you stay little! you know I hate
yountr ladies 1"
"Nevertheless you won't hate mo for
tho sake of ould lang syne," she au
swered, with a pretty laugh aud smil
ing blue oyes. "J3ut vou must nut mo
down somowhore, for my poor head
swims about liko a top."
A he old fellow gallantly placod hor

in close proximity, whero ho could now

it was agreed by tho old gentlemen
that their parties should travel toe-ethers
and, for tho sako of tho consumptive
Dinsmore.spend tho summer in France,
winter in Egypt, and again try tho
uoih mo on too is lie.
Accordingly Edmund found enouch
of care to occupv his entire time nnd
attention tho helplessness of tho two
old men, a dellcato female, tho two
valets, and tho lady s maid.
As thoy journod from point to point,
Edmund frequently received dispatches
from home, and Kosa noticed that, in
stead of clieerinir him. thov produced
fits of melnnoholy, which old Podham
designated as "tlio dumps.
Upon ono occasion, whilo waitinir at
Alexandria for tho proper outfit for
their journey, a letter cniuo j and tor
tho remainder of tho day Edmund was
silent nnd sad ; and though ho piloted
the party upon a round of Bight-seeing,

feobleness of Mr. Dinsinore, yet ho was
preoccupied ami reserved, ins manner

Jeptha, who secretly applauded his
good seuso nnd strength of mind.
But as they wero Blnndlng together

just now, Unolo Jeptha possesses n
goodly share of mine. I ought not to

"L should not wish to exchange Egypt
for Now York, but I am longing to
commence our Nile journoy. Thon I
will gather by tho way lotus blossoms
for your pillow."
"1 would that thoy might indeed
possess, not only the forgctfulness of
sorrow, but of sin. Then I should owo
you a lasting debt of gratitude.
Ho spoke bitterly, and tho girl look
ed up at him with surprised, question
ing oyes ; and then, with a littlo ripple
of laughter, sho replied :
"Uno would thiuk you wero an cs-
capod convict, Mr. Latimorl"
"You have gucssod it. 1 feel as if I
wero indeed n fugitive from juctice."
"A do not understand your meaning,
was simply ioking, and vou nro
almost .fiercely in earnest."
Alas I l think I was bewailing tho
tendency of life's tido to drift us into
wrong currents, isut hero como the
patriarchs of our party. Forget, Uosa,
that I am anything but a dreaming
misanthrope, out of which your lotus
blossoms arc to bring me into tho Ely
sium of forgelfulness."
Alter this conversation, by her quiok,
womanly intuition, Rosa came to know
that Bomo secret sorrow or anxiety was
iressmg heavily upon tho heart of her
;riend : and from that hour bIio gave
him that tender sympathy which is so
near akin to a dearer relation.
But could sho havo known of tho
miserable tidings which thoso de
spatches from his mother brought to
Edmund Latimer of tho perfidy of
his wife of her quickly drifting to
tho bad of her loatbsomo vioo of
hebrioty of alb tho dismal tales of
er fall, her pity would havo been
great indeed.
"You know, said ono of the letters.

All the dajs thoy drifted on tho Nile,
or wandered amid tho ruined greatness,
the haunting vision of tho woman ho
bad loved and promised to protect,
never left Edmund Latimer. In her
dashing, imperious girlhood, or as tho
selfish, money-loving, wine-bibbing,
heartless wife, until he grew pale and
wretched, sho seemed ever before him.
And over and over again ho was upon
tho point of telling his uncle everything
though tho affectionate regard and
needs oi the good old gentlemen caused
him to refrain.
So they drifted on through tho win
ter, and out of Egypt, through sunny
Italy, into a little aud beautiful Swiss
Thero the old friends, Podham and
Diusmore, took cottages, side by side,
and with gardens joining each other.
Over tho rude, stone fence, which
divided them,clambered fruit and vines,
making a green iiedge, through which
opened a little gate; and into this
tangled mazo of bloom was daily
wheeled tho arm chair of the fast-fail
ing invalid father of Itosa Dinsinore,
And in tins peaceful spot Edmund
Latimer had in reality found his lotus
blossoms. At least ho had accepted
the condition of things, with philoso
phy, if not patience ; and so he dream
ed away the summer days in tho dan
gerously sweet companionship of i
pure, white womanhood, such as Rosa
daily demonstrated. Ho was content
to livo thus, with eyes sealed to certain
probabilities which time must bring.
Together ho and Itosa climbed Al
pino heights, or read sonnets beneath
some verdant shade, with Uncle Jep
tha as apparently blind to tho danger
of such intercourse as any male. He
perhaps thought his nephow proof
against sueti charms as youth, a lily,
anu rose-uiootumg lace, with golden
tresses, a sylph liko form, and a. voico
of wonder sweetness.
At all events life went on und'tsturb
cd in tho two cottages, until ono dav
old Mr. Dinsmoro coughed himself
into n hemorrhage, whose red tido
floated the good, old, loving soul out
of the world.
1 hen thero was great consternation
in the littlo Swiss cottage. Rosa lav

oss, but with her hand closo clasped

had tenderly elected himself to tho

When the day had ended she arose,
with tho conviction that sho had in
dulged in useless grief sufficiently
long, nnd her duty lay now with the
kind old man who loved her. and who
would henceforth caro for her until she
could bo pliced with somo distaut kin

He still held closely tho two littlo
hands ( that seemed so helpless nnd
trembling. Tho poor child had borne
up bravely for tho sako of others t but,
at his kind words, nil tho magnitudo of
her loss arose before hor. Raising her
pale faco toword tho kind, sympathiz
ing ono ocnuing over ncr, mo noou
gates of her sorrow opened wide, and
with a burst of uncontroliaulo grief she
bemoaned her loss.
"Oh 1 why could my dear father not
have been spared to mo! I loved him
so well, nnd ho was all 1 had in tho
wido world to lovo or caro for me !''
Tho pallid face, the raining tears
and drooping attitude, all appealed to
tho most tenders sentiments of her com
panion's heart. Forgotten wero his
often-registered vows. A11 of tho
past, with its hideous fetters, seemed
to glide into oblivion as ho endeavored
to comfort tho orphaned girl. Tender
ly ho clasped her to his heart ; tender
ly he breathed into tho littlo ear, that
lay upon his breast, words that should
havo blistered his tongue I Again and
again ho told how lie loved her how
ho had grown to livo only in hor pres
ence whilo away from her his lifo
was a blank. Again nnd again, in tho
rapture of emotion, ho kissed tho gold-
head that reposed bo trustingly
above his heart. Then ho stooped to
tho lips ; and iu that loving kiss ho
promised that his affection should bo
deathless that his care of her should
bo life-long and nil absorbing.
At that moment a strange sound,
liko low, gurgling, hideous laughter,
broko tho silence of the room, and
ichoed through the little passage and
above the cold form of tho dead. Then,
if somo horrible vision, from re
gions of the lost, had broken in upon
the happy scene, to curse and call the
perjured soul of the lover to account,
camo tho fearful sound again.
Tho lovers started trom each other s
arms to be confronted by the face of a
woman, who stood in tho garden be
neath tho window, her arms resting
upon the sill, her bloated faco lighted
up by tho wax tapers upon tho man
tel. Edmund staggered back at the
sight of that face the girl clinging to
him in terror. T lio black eyes Hashed
upon them from above tho puffy'
cheeks out of which all traces of
beauty, or even comeliness, had been
washed by dissipation nnd again the
mocking laughter pretaced words that
were as tho blasting hiss of somo poi
sonous serpent.
"ijo 1 It is as 1 thought, lidmund

tho hideous laugh rung out once more,
and an ugly sneer curled the lips.
"What does, what can, this mean!
questioned Rosa, still clinging in af-
fright to the arm of Latimer.
"Mean T hissed the purple lips of
tho woman ; "mean" ! Just this Yon-

Then tho passion ot tho woman
broko through all bounds. Sho shook
her tists at them, and launched oaths
and imprecations that pierced the
white soul of Rosa as with a knifo ;
she Iponred out abuse and threats j but
in the very in dst of her towering
anger sho reeled and fell, clutching at
tno air with her nerveless hands.

invigoratas our faculties ; it is a gain
