I met a child ; his feet were bare,
Hie weak frame shivered with the cold ;
His youthful brow was knit with care,
His flashing eye his sorrow told.
Said I, " Poor boy, wby weepest thou,?"
"My parents are both dead," he said;
I have not where to lay my head ;
"0, I am lone and friendless now !"
Not friendless, child ; a friend on high
For you his precious blood 1 a given ;
Cheer up, and bid each tear be dry—
" There are no tears in Heaven."
I saw a man, in life's gay noon,
Stand weeping o'er his young brid's bier ;
"And we must part," he cried "so soon !"
As down his cheek there rolled a tear.
"Heart-stricken one, "said I "vi e• p not!"
" Weep not!" in accents wild he cried,
"But yesterday my young love died !
"And shall she be so soon forgot ?"
Forgotten ! No, still let her love
Sustain thy heart, with anguish riven ;
Strive thou to meet thy bride above,
Ana dry your tears in Heaven.

You have heard me say, repeatedly, that
I should settle my estate upon Gray's
wife, let her be who she would. He is
very superior young man, and most girls
would have sense enough to appreciate
such an offer."
" But it has all been arranged. If I
had seen the fellow and liked him myself,
without any help from other people, the
affair would be entirely different ; but the
idea of marrying a man because somebody
says I must, is intolerable. You can set
tle your estate, Aunt Raphael, upon whom
you like," and Blanche took her Botany
and sauntered to the woods in quest of
flowers. Hour after hour she wandered
ou, regardless of the route, or the distance
she was straying. Blanche was a close
student, in spite of her gayety, and many
rare specimens were analyzed, and NAtural
Oder, Genera, and Species, carefully noted
on a slip of paper, as she now and then
rested upon the trunk of some fallen tree.
By-and-by she grew an y, as she was
unable to decide in which direction her
aunt's residence lay. Then there was a
rushing noise in the underbrush; not a
great distance from her • this rustling was
succeeded by two or thr ee: harsh growls.
This so much terrified Blanche that she
rushed towards an opening in the forest,
regardless of the direction. Leaping over ,
logs or whatever chanced to 110 hi her
path, ou, on she went, almost, eying—
sometimes sinking in marshy spots almost
to the tops of her gaiters but onward and
rapidly, furnishing herself with a new slit
in her dress at almost every bound. With
garments ruined, she at last found herself
in an opening and a little further on,
through a clump of maples, loomed the
stately walls of a mansion. The building
was both high and deep, with a gray stone
front and gray shutters. It was located
in the rear of a park,, constructed with
various drives, an artificial lake and foun
Everything was
smallprepossessing to the
eye ? and it was no relief to Blanche
to feel that she was out ofdanger ; but her
soiled garments looked shockingly--entire
ly unfitting her to appear among well
bred people. She at last concluded to vet
ture to the back door and enquire of the
servants respecting her route home. Sur
mounting a stone votil, she walked up a
grassy lawn, and passing through a small
gate, goon fouud herself in the ,garden.
" Will you walk in Ph said a gentleman
ly looking man, emerging from a group of
tire on the right.
"Do come in and rest you," urged a
young lady, apparently his sister.
Blanche glanced upon herself and then
blushed with mortification. The gentle
man was apparently only three or four
years older than herself; with a cast of
countenance decidedly intellectual. Ills
forehead was broad and high, surmounted
with glossy, black hair, a handsome
moustache curled gracefully upon the up
p3r lip, with heavy whiskers completing
the finish.
The first impulse which came over
Blanche was to tly ; the next was to pull
one little curl of the fellow's whiskers as
revenge for a smile which rippled over his
face in spite of his efforts to suppress it.
Her last resolve was to accept the young
lady's invitation and brave it out or con
quer through her sympathy ; for certainly
one girl can feel for another when gaiters
are mud to the tops and dress torn to
They entered the front hall, and, ascend
ing the stairs, were soon in Clara's own
room, where fresh gaiters and a clean mus
lin dress were at her disposal. Arranging
her hair carefully she was soon presenta
ble, for Blanche owned a bewitching,
coquettish looking face, entirely her own.
The two young ladies descended to the
library, where the brother was in waiting,
of course ; luncheon had been ordered, and
the young people were not long in getting
nuicig. man iAnversed most admi
ragny , and Blanche was fascinated: She
soon learned that he was a senior student
at Yale, and was to graduate at com
mencement. Hour after hour wore away
most agreeably, till at last the clock struck
five, and Blanche started in dismay.
She was two miles from home, and had
no time to Icse. Her new acquaintances
urged her to remain, and they would s,•nd
word to her aunt where she was ; but the
girl understood her position better than to
comply with such a request, however kind
in itself.
Promisin to return the 'sorrowed gar
ments in a tew days, she expressed many
thanks, fur Miss Clara's kindness, and
took her leave. As she stepped into the
front veranda, to her surprise a carriage
was in waiting. The brother handed her
in and ordered the drive to Mrs.
They were soon iu sight of the grounds
of her aunt's Inansion, but. Blanche urged
the propriety of walking the last gnarter
of a mile and going unattended. This
arrangement was readily consented to,
and thanking the gentleman for his pat..-
nese, the tired girl walked up the back
lane, entered the kitchen door. and rush
ed up stairs before anybody had time to
notice her. Hurriedly arraying herself in
ol je of her own dresses, she went down the
I'AM/it's and met her aunt at the tea
table. They took their repast silently.
As the illusion to Claranec Gray, in the
morning, had caused Blanche to rush from
the house and remain absent during the
day, her aunt thought best not to speak of
The next booming their breakfast pass
ed as silently as their tea the night previ
ous ; the determined girl, half pouting,
half sad, sipping hei• coffee and twir!ing
bier teaspoon.
As soon us the cloth eras removed,
Blanche took her Botany and wandered in
the direction of the mansion she had dis
covered the day previous, though she firm
ly resolved not to go near it. Some wild
flowers were gathered, and she seated
herself upon a log, to separate the petals
of the calyx and the petals of the carolla.
The stamens were counted, and Blanche
had given the plant its locality, in iiocord
am* with Linnaeus, and was about de
ciding upon Natural Order and tienus,
according to J ussel3, when sls ieurit

He had started to go over to Mrs. Wit

upon the way analyzing flowers, conclu
ded not to go further. From Mr. Clif
ford's polite request there was an arrange
ment for them to review their Botanical
lesson for an hour each day, in the shade
of a maple which stood near them. The
young college student was in love, and
Blanche was not less fascinated.

people were engaged, though each resolv

"M sister will call upon you to-mor
row, Miss Merton she wonders every
day why you do not come over. You
may expect her without fail, so be on
lour guard, and look beautiful, just as
you do now.”
Blanche blushed and looked down, feel
ing indescribably happy, till the thought
came rushing over her that her aunt would
never consent to her marrying any one
but young Gray, a gentleman whom she
had never seen, and of course cared
nothing for.
Is there anything equal to being com
pelled to drag out a life time with one we
cannot love, while , . those most dear to us
are as unfortunately tied to some one else ?
Blanche grew giddy with her thoughts,
and for a moment reeled, then hurrying

rew heieelf upon her knees. Long and
earnestly she plead with heaven for help,
then rising, sank upon her couch, and
bathed her pillow in tears.
The next morning as she entered the
hreakfixst-room, the first words that greet
ed her were :
• Blanche, Blanche, you must have your
new moire autique made up immediately.
Mr. Gray . has got home, and will dine
with us in a few days. I have just re
ceived a letter from him saying . , •we may
expect him soon."
"For a moment the color rushed into
her face, then faded as it came, till she was
colorless. The poor girl now fully real
ized that her aunt would never consent
to her marrying Charles Clifford, intelli
gent and fascinating as he really was, and
the heir of as large a property as Clarence
Gray could lutve. How dark the world
looked to her—life itself a burden.

"Why, child, what is the matter ? 1,
inquired Mrs. Wilbur, who noticed the
girl's emotion.
"I wish Clarence Gray were in Jericho,
or a thousand miles beyond it !" replied
Blanche, shaking from head to foot.
Mrs. Wilbur drew herself up haughtily.
Blanche Merton, hear me, once for
all. I wish you to treat him well. He
is a very superior young man, and my
property shall go to his wife—whether it

"Bestow your property where you like,
Aunt Rachael. I shall marry the man I

"And whom do you love?' inquired
the astonished aunt.
"One who is equally as worthy as
Clarence Gray."
" Where did you meet him ? Who is
he, and what is he ?" sternly demanded
the enraged Mrs. Wilbur.
Blanche saw her case was almost hope
less, and, throwing herself upon her knees,
clasped her aunt's hands in agony. It
was a burst of griefand she gave free veut
to a flood of tears.
Mrs. Wilbur was too much exc.ted to
notice approaching footsteps, and the
poor girl. at her feet realized nothing but
her own sorrow. Presently Blanche felt
the touch of a hand upon her bowed head.
Looking up. Charles Cliffiml was before
her. and in a na more he clasped her
in his arms.
" Why, Clarence, how OW .1 am to see

disengaged hand, for one arm was around
"Clarence— C;arence !" echoed the as
tonished girl, " what does this menu, Mr.

embrace, as, half ossified, half petrified,
she stood gazing into the face before her.
" Forgive me dear girl, for winning
your heart as Charles Clifford. My name
is Clarence Gray—with heart, hand and
