SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 26, 1880.
"Who is he?'' asked Stella : she and
Felicia Martin were idly looking out upon
the driveway of Mr. Martin's country
seat through the narrow latticed win
dows. " That is Colonel Audenrieil," answer
Felicia, adjusting her eyeglasses. " Papa
is briuging him here te dine. He is a
widower ; he's lived abroad for years.
Seems te me I've heard that his course of
true love didn't run smooth. He has the
most bewitching melancholy eyes, and
6ttch a manner ! Yeu can't help wishinjr
he was in love with you."
That night, while the girls combed out
their braids and curls, in the low wains wains
ceated chamber, Felicia suddenly remark
ed, "I believe there will be a second Mrs.
Stella gave a start,ani n ;,;.. ,! from an
excursion into the past.
" De you knew," continued Felicia, " I
caught him looking at your rellcctien in
the mirror, with his heart in his eyes. I
wonder the lirst Mrs. Audcnreid didn't
turn in her grave."
" Felicia,don't ! you make me shudder,"
cried btella. " 1 our imagination is better
than your eyesight ; you are always seeing
somebody devouring somebody else with
their glances. I'm sure thought Colonel
Audenreid was as indifferent as a star in
' Modest creature ! He had ears for no
body but yourself, as well as eyes. It is
Kismet. Why was net born under some
some lucky planet?"
Frem that date Cel. Audcnreid became
a frequent guest at Mr. Martin's suburban
retreat. He rode with St Ha and Felicia
ever the hills ; he pickuicked with them
at the edge of the pine weeds ; he drifted
en the lake at sunset by their side, and
lilled the beat with water lillies and spicy
branches of the wild azalea ; he amused
them with glimpses of his Continental
life ; with stories of the war, in which he
had led a forlorn hope ; of camp and hos
pital regimen. Sometimes they took the
train te the city, and laughed together
ever some comedy, or hung entranced upon
some famous singer's tones; or they join
ed a pleasure party te the Sheals, or down
the harbor returning in the dewy evening,
with the stars leaning out of heaven, anil
the whip-peer-will making the night mcl-
inehely. Once they paused at the gate te
listen te his plaintive voice.
passed en te the piazza : the
out tall and dusky against the heavens
the roses shook out an odorous breath
whenever the wind touched them.
"Yeu should hear the nightingales Hitt
ing about my home in Surrey, when the
night falls ; it is like the refrain of some
sad poem," said Cel. Audenreid.
"Yeu must have been very happy there
in that beautiful country,"' returned
Cel. Audenreid opened the gate for her
te pars en, without replying with a' dis
traught'air, as if he were alieady miles
away from the subject.
"I think he did net like me te speak of
that time," she confessed te Felicia.
" Fiddlesticks," returned that, young
" Perhaps it was loe sacred."'
" Pshaw ! Arc you blind, Stella ".' Znoiie
se blind as these who won't see, I've
heard. I hastened into the house en pur
pose te give him a chance te speak te you.
1 saw it in his eyes."
"I never knew such sight as yours,
though I've always understood nearsighted
people could see in the dsrk. He has noth
ing special te say te me."
"Then he is the greatest humbug ex
tant. He leaves us next month. If he
says nothing before then, I shall .never be
lieve in sign and omens again."
"Xer in your own eyesight ? Peer Fe
licia, I'm afraid you're deemed te disap
pointment." " I've set my heart upon the match.''
The next day Mr. Martin and his family
set oil" te the nearest beach for a week's
camping out " A little taste of Gypsy
life," he said ; and Colonel Audenreid,
confessing that a camp was quite home
like and incsistible, followed, bearing his
part in pitching the teuts, in baking, and
hewing, and gathering the drift-weed te
boil the kettle. They sat late en the beach
at night, within view of the smeuldeiiiig
drift weed lire, watching the sails that
glimmered in the starlight an instant, like
ghosts, and were gene, the revolving lights
like great glow-worms, lilting sea songs,
repeating all the lore and romance of the
" melancholy main." Colonel Auilen
reid's attic expedition as well as his In
dian voyages furnished material for con
versation, even had he net been shipwreck
ed, and once in peril from mutiny : but he
seemed the merest dilettante while he
lounged upon the sand, quoting poetry and
carelling snatches of ballads te two pretty
The sea hatn lis pearls.
The heaven hath Us star. :
Cut my heart, my heart.
My heart hath its love."
he repeated one night, as he gave his hand
te Stella te rise.
" Did you notice?"' said Felicia, later;
" he spoke in the present tense. He ig
nored the past."
" He was quoting from the German."
" Hew stupid you are, Stella I If you
will net respond, hew is a lever te knew.il'
" Hew can you help it ? Oh why doesn't
he make love te me that way !"
" Nonsense, Felicia ; he makes the same
sort of love te every girl he meets, I sup
pose." "I don't suppose anything of the kind."
The following day the wind turned cast,
a drizzling lazy rain set in, blotting out
everything, and obliging them te fold
their tents and take refuge in the little
sea-shell house at hand ; and by midnight
all the powers of the air were abroad; the
sea seemed te beat and bellow under their
very windows, the wind whipped it into
line feathers of spray, and the darkness
was like a garment. There was a gray
sickly dawn creeping up the sky, when
Stella, looking from her window, saw in
the distance the outlines of a ragged wreck
painted boldly against the horizon, and
the shore swarming with people moving
"Oh, Stella," cried Felicia, "here's a real
shipwreck ! Let us put en our wraps and
creep down te the shore, and hear all
about it. I wouldn't miss it for worlds !"
Felicia's teeth weie chattering mightily
as they took their way te the shore, and
mingled among the groups of men and
"She'll go te pieces in no time at all,"
some one was prophesying. " Jim saw
folks a-clingtng te the masts and things,
with his glass."
" That's a master glass of his'n," said
another. "But ain't they going for te de
"They've sent out a life-line; but it
ain't no pleasant places that line's fallen
into, let me tell you. Jim he was a-going
with it but for me and the children. I'm
powerful glad he didn't."
"Girls! girls!" cried Mr. Martin, bust
ling up, "this is no place for you. Better
go back te your beds. Trying scene. Nene
of these clod-hoppers would carry out the
line te save a soul. Audenreid has gene
out with it himself a terrible risk. Se
much brilliancy and cultivation, se much
wit and experience, as geed as thrown
away. They'll have te pull the line in
presently, no doubt, and it would be pain
ful for you te be here, my dears, after se
much pleasant companionship. Oh.
Stella ! Stella ! my dear girl."
Stella had fainted away.
It was a stirring morning that followed
at the little Sea-shell house, providing for
the rescued, listening te their story, and
talking ever the event. When Stella left
her room, about neon, she was met by a
fisherman's wife bringing her ;i sealed
note. " I found it in the pocket of Jim's
pea-jacket, and I made out hew it was for
Miss Stella Ames, and they told me you
were the lady as fainted en the beach,"
she explained. " Yeu see, Jim has sjene
for the doctor up te town, and he changed
his coat lirst te leek ship-shape like."
"Thank you," said Stella. " Who can
have written te me here '.'" as she tore it
open and lead :
"I am" going te cany the life-line out te
a shipwrecked crew. I shall probably
never return alive, but it is their only
chance. While veu are drcaininir en your
pillow, I shall, perhaps, be tasting the
bitterness of death and parting. Yerilv.
death is this' te see you no mere till the
sea gives up its dead. Mv darling, inv
darling. Jet me have the happiness of re
penting I love you. I love you, Sfelli.
Geed by, sweetheart, geed by.
Then she tinned te the tern envelope
addressed te '"Miss Stella Ames, Sea-shell
house. T be given her in case I never
return." The revelation was premature.
Colonel Audenried had returned, but se
spent that the doctor had been summoned
from town. Mr. Martin took his family
back te Martinvale, but Colonel Auden
reid remained at the sea side a fortnight
longer under treatment. In the mean
time, Stella went home home for Stella
meaning attendance en the whims of a
wealthy hypochondriac, with a small
stipend, without lelax'atien. One morn
ing the pest brought her a letter from
Felicia. Perhaps it contained news of
Colonel Audenried. It did with a venge
ance. " Dearest Stella" (it began), " Hew
odd that the very thing I wished should
come te pass ! I'm almost daft. Te. think
that, alter all my nonsense, it should be
me myself -little insignificant, near
sighted relicia Martin, whom Colonel
Audenreid asks te marry him ! I can

It was no wonder that .Mrs. Davis found
Stella distraught that day, talking at inii inii
dem, absent-eyed, and fantastic in her
moods. What did it all mean? Why
had Colonel Audenried written her that
note if he loved Felicia, and why was In
going te marry her if he loved somebody
else? Didn't he knew that she had ic
ceived his message of love? Or did he
mean simply te ignore it, having seen lit
te change? Frem living in a state of hap
py excitement, when every footstep in the
street below might be Colonel Audenreid's
who was hastening te repeat the burden of
his note, Stella was suddenly brought
down te earth, te the dull certainty that,
nothing mere was ever likely te happen te
her, that there had been some dreadful
mistake somewhere, which had lent her
days a rose-color for a little
while, te be sure, only te leave them
grayer and nteie forlorn than bi-f no.
All at once she leniembercd with a shud
der that Cononel Audenreid's fatal note
was at Martinvale, that one nierniir; she
had been leading iband getting it by heart
in her own room, when Felicia knocked at
her deer, and siie had slipped the precious
document between the leaves of her Gelden
Treiisnri lying en the toilette table ; and
then Felicia had entered with Mrs. Davis's
summons for Stella te return te duty, and
in her hasty packing and departure she had
left .Martinvale without the Gelden Treas
ury. Seme day she premised herself te
beg leave of Mrs. Davis, te run away te
Martinvale, and secure her treasure, net
that its possession would signify te her any
longer, only in order te keep it from Fe
licia's eyes ; but Mrs. Davis would net
hear te being left an hour, and sometimes
Stella cherished the insane idea of writing
te Mrs. Martin, and requesting that -lady
te send the Gelden. Treasury of Seny, which
she would find in the gable room, without
open in y il.
" Dear Mrs. Davis," she begged one
lay, when a couple of months had gene
by, and she had heard no mere of pearls
and satins and bridesmaids from. Felicia,

"Can't you tell me about it?"
"Yes, I will, and then you will surely
let me go. When I was at Martinvale in
the summer, I met Cel a certain gentle
man, lie was very kind. He carried the
life-line out te a distressed crew when we
weie all at the beach together, and he left
a little loelislt, hastv note ler me, in case '

note was brought te me though he did n:
turn. It was a htisty Iittie atiair, you
knew, written, no doubt, under strong ex
citement, when he had misunderstood his
feelings, I suppose ; for I have never seen
him since, and the note is in my Gelden
Treasury, which I left behind me, and mv
friend Felicia Martin may find it, and it
will break her heart, for she is going te
marry Colonel Audenreid Oh ! I did net
mean te tell his name :

Davis; "it was my own

" But you see there must have been
some mistake about it."
" Well, there are as geed iish in the su
as ever yet weie caught, child. Ge and

will." And for the first time Mrs.
Davis kissed Stella's white cheek. " Yeu

"u". "",,ral- I -""'".""-i
btepping into the station she ran against ,
Colonel Audcnreid stepping out. with her i
Gelden Treasury in his hand. They
looked at each ether for a breathing
" I was going te you," said the colonel, j
" Where is Felicia?" demanded Stella. I
" At home and happy, still. Where
were you going?"
" Te Martinvale, for my Gelden Treasury."
" I have made the journey unnecessary.
Let me call a carriage, and take you
heme. I have a great deal te confess."
"It happened oddly enough, " he ex
plained, later, when he had given orders
te be driven in the opposite direction
from I' home. " "I had left the note
te be given you in case I never returned.
Afterward, when I asked Jim te surrender
it, he confessed that he couldn't lay
hands upon it ; must have lest it through
the hole in the pocket of his pea-jacket.
That was of no consequence ; if he had
dropped it en the beach, the tide had hid
den it. Returning alive. I prepared te de
my courting by word of mouth. I did net
knew you had left Mr. Martin's.
When I was able te walk, I went there
te find you. It was dusk as I ap
proached through the garden. Somebody
was dreaming en the piazza. "It is Stella,'
I thought. Inside the house Mrs. Martin
was speaking te Felicia. I heard her say
distinctly. " Shall you go te town te-morrow,
Felicia ?" and Felicia reply, Cer
tainly, if the weather allows." " I did net

the same tricks of veice.Of course, il Felicia

from the window dispelled my dream.
Felicia child.' it said, you wilftake cold
mooning out theie se late." De jeu knew
Stella, at that instant I was almost sorry
the sea had net finished me en the night
of the wreck. Stupid of me, wasn't it?
But all's well that ends well. 1 had no
thought of retreat. Felicia had accepted
me. 1 had heard at the beach that
she fainted when I carried out the line.
Veu had net received my note, and had no
knowledge of my feelings. I must make
the best of my mistake. The engagement
was announced. I made a sorry lever, I
fear. One day when I went down te visit
at Martinvale, they gave me the room you
had used, as there were ether guests. In
a tit of megrims, I happened upon your
Gelden Tnaxitry, and your name stared at
me from the Hy-lcaf, and my own letter
fell at my feet. Felicia released me with
out a sigh. There is another star in her
heaven, Oefere which mv light grows pale.
