" Franz, geed morning.
: Whose philos philes philos
pinesa, Kantz or
pby is it new ? xlegeL.
" Nene of them. I am reading Faust"
"Worse and worse. Better wrestle
with philosophies than lese yourself in the
clouds. At any rate, if the poets are te
send the philosophers te the right about,
stick te Shakspeare."
"He is tee material. He can't get rid
of men and women."
" They are a little better, I should think,
than Mephiste. Come Franz,' condescend
te cravats and kid gloves, and let us go
and see my cousin (Christine Strembdrg."
" I de net knew the young lady."
" Of course net. She has just returned
from a Munich school. Her brother Max
was at the Lyndens' great party, you re-
" I don't remember, Leuis. In white
cravats and black coats all men leek
"But you will go?"
"If you wish it, yes. There are some
uncut reviews en the table ; amuse your
self while I dress."
" Thanks, I have my cigar case. I will
take a smoke, and think of Christine."
Fer some reason, quite beyond analysis,
Franz did net like this speech. He had
never seen Christine Stromberg, but yet
half resented the careless use of her name.
It fell upon some soul consciousness like a
familiar and personal name, and yet he
vainly recalled every phase of his life for
any clew te his familiarity.
He was a handsome fellow, with large
clearly cut features and gray thoughtful
eyes. In a conversation that interested
him greatly his face lighted up with a
singularly beautiful animation, but usually
it was as still and passionless as if the soul
was away en a dream or a visit. Even the
regulation cravat and coat could net de
strey his individuality, and Leuis looked
admiringly at him, and said, " Yeu are
still Franz Muller. Ne one is just like
you. I should think Cousin Christine will
fall in love with you."
Again Franz's heart resented this
speech. It had been waiting for love for
many a year, but he could net jest or spec
ulate about it. Ne one but the thought
less, favored Leuis ever dared te de it be
fore Franz, and no one ever spoke lightly
of women before him, for the worst of
men are sensitive te the presence of a pure
and lefty nature, and are generally willing
te respect it.
Franz dreamed of women, but only of
noble women, and even for these who fell
below his ideal he had a thousand apolo
gies, and a world of pity. It was strange
that such a man should have lived thirty
years, and never have really loved any
mortal woman. But his hour had come at
last. As seen as he'saw Christine Strem
berg he loved her. A strange exaltation
possessed him ; his face was radiant ; he
talked and sang 'with a brilliancy that
amazed even these most familiar with his
rare exhibitions of such moods. And
Christine seemed fascinated by his beauty
and wit. The hours passed like moments;
and when the girl steed watching him
down the moon-lit avenue, she almost
trembled te remember what questions
Franz's eyes had asked her, and hew
strangely familiar the clasp of his hand
and the sound of his voice had seemed te
"I wonder where I have seen him be
fore," she murmured "I wonder where
it was?" and te this thought she slowly
took off one by one her jewels and brushed
out her long black hair; nay when she fell
asleep, it was only te take it up again in
As for Franz, he was in far tee ecstatic
a mood te think of sleep. "One has tee
few of such godlike moments te steep
them in unconsciousness," he said te him
self. And se he sat smoking and thinking
and watching the waning moon sink lower,
until it was no longer night, but dawning
" In a few hours new I can go and see
Christine." At this point in his love he
had no ether thought. He was tee happy
te speculate en any probability as yet. It
was sufficient at present te knew that he
had found his love, that -she lived at a
definite number en a definite avenue, and
that in six or seven hours mere he might
see her again.
He chose the earlier number. It was
just eleven o'clock when he rung Mr.
Dtremberg's bell. Mrs. Stromberg passed
through the hall as he entered, and greeted
him pleasantly. "Christine and I are just
going te have breakfast." she said, in her
jelly, hearty way. "Come in, Mr. Muller,
and have a cup of coffee with us."
Nothing could have delighted Franz se
much. Christine was pouring it out as he
entered the pretty breakfast parlor. Hew
beautiful she looked in her long loose
morning dress ! Hew bewitching were its
numerous bows of pale ribbon ! He had a
sense of hunger immediately, and he knew
that he made an excellent breakfast; but
of what he ate, or what he drank, be had
net the slightest conception.
A cup of coffee passed through Christine's
hands necessarily suffered some wonderful
chance. It could net, and it did net, taste
like ordinary coffee. In the same myster
ious way chicken, eggs, and rolls became
sublimated. Se they ate, ana laughed,
and chatted, and I am quite sure that Mil Mil
eon never imagined a meal in Eden half se
delightful as that breakfast en the avenue.
When it was ever, it .came into Franz's
heart te offer Christine a ride. They were
standing together among the flowers in
the bay-window, and the trees outside were
in their first tender green, and the spring
skies and the spring airs were full of hap
piness and hope. Christine was arranging
and watering her lilies and pansies. and
somehow in helping her Franz's hands and
hers had; lingered happily together. Se
new love gave te this mortal an immortal's
confidence. He never thought of Bighing,
and fearing, and trembling. His soul had
claimed Christine, and he firmly believed
that sooner or later she would hear and
understand what he had te say te her.
" Shall we ride?" he said, just touching
her fingers, and looking at her with eyes
and face glowing with a wenderfnl happi
ness. Alas, Christine could think of mamma,
and of morning calls, and of what people
would say. Eat Franz overruled every
scruple ; he conquered mamma, and laugh
ed at society ; and before Christine had
decided which of her costumes was most
becoming, Franz was waiting at the deer.
Hew they rattled up the avenue and
through the park! new the green
branches waved in triumph, and hew the
birds sang and gossiped about
sang and gossiped about them I
By the time they arrived, at Mount WUZSuZZ bnt he alwawcruXTdewn
Vincent they had forgotten thef were
m ti..M' . i
mortal.. Then the rest in the shady gafi
lery, and the subf&teace of, love's exalta
tion into.leve!s silent, tender melancholy,
were just as blissful.
' They came slowly home, speaking only
in glances and monosyllables, but just be
fore they, parted' Franz said: "I have
been waiting thirty years for you, Chris,
tine ; te-day my life has blossomed."
And-though Christine did net make any
audible answer, he thought her blush suf
ficient; besides, she took the lilies from
her threat, and gave them te him.
Such a dream of true love is given only
te the few whom the gods favor. Franz
must have steed high in their grace, for it
lasted through many sweet weeks and
months for him. He followed the Strom Strem
bergs te Newport, and laid his whole life
down at Christine's feet There was no
definite engagement between them, but
every one understood that would come as
surely as tbe.end of the season.
Meney matters and housekeeping must
eventually intrude themselves, but the
romance and charm of this one summer of
life should be untouched. And Franz was
net anxious at all en this score. His
father, a shrewd business man, had early
seen that his son was a poet and a dreamer.
"It is net the boy's fault," he said te his
partner ; " he gets it from his grandfather,
who was always mere out of this world
than in it."
Se he wisely allowed Franz te fellow
his natural tastes, and contented himself
with carefully investing his fortune in such
real estate and securities as he believed
would insure a safe, if slew, increase. Ee
had bought wisely, and Franz's income
was a certain and handsome one, with a
tendency rather te increase than decrease,
and quite sufficient te maintain Christine
in all the luxury te which she had been
Se when he returned te the city he in
tended te speak te Mr. Strenberg. All he
had should be Christine's, and her father
shenld settle the matter just as he thought
best for his daughter. In a general way
this was understood by all parties, and
every one seemed inclined te sympathize
with the happy feeling which led the levers
te deprecate during "these enchanted days
any allusion which tended te dispel the ex
quisite charm of their young life's idyl.
Perhaps it would have been better if
they had remembered the ancient supersti
tion, and themselves done something te
mar their perfect happiness. Pelycrates
offered his ring te avert the calamity sure
te fellow unmitigated pleasure or success,
and Franz ought perhaps te have also
made an effort te propitiate his envious
But he did net, and toward the very end
of the season, when the October days, had
thrown a kind of still melancholy ever the
world that bad been se green and gay,
Franz's dream was rudely broken broken
by a Mr. James Barker Clarke, a bluster
ing, vulgar man of fifty, worth three mil mil
lient. In seme'way or ether he seemed te
have a great deal of' influence ever Mr.
Stromberg, who paid him unqualified re
spect, and ever Mrs. Stromberg, who
seemed te fear him.
Mr. Stromberg's "private ledger" alone
knew the whole secret ; for of course
money was at the foundation. Indeed, in
these days, in all public and private
troubles, it is proper te ask, net "Who is
she?" but "Hew much is it?" Franz
Muller and James Barker Clarke hated
each ether en sight. Still Franz had no
idea at first that this ugly, uncouth man
could ever be a rival te his own handsome
person and passionate affection.
In a few days, however, he was com
pelled te actually consider the possibility
of such a thing. Mr. Stromberg had as
sumed an attitude of such extreme polite
ness, and Mrs. Stromberg avoided him if
possible, and u net possible, was con
strained and unhappy in the familiar rela
tions that she had accepted se happily all
summer, and her eyes were often swollen
and red with weeping.
At length, without notice, the family
left Newport, and went te stay a month
with some relative near Bosten. A pitiful
little note from Christine informed him of
this fact ; but as he received no informa
tion as te the locality of her relative's
house, and no invitation te call, he was
compelled for the present te de as Chris
tine asked him wait patiently for their
At first he get a few short tender notes,
but they were evidently written in such
sorrow that he was almost beside himself
with grief and anger. When these ceased
he went te Bosten, and without difficulty
found the house where Christine was stay
ing. He was received at first very shyly
by Mrs. Stromberg, but when Franz
poured out his love and misery, the peer
old lady wept bitterly, and moaned out
that she could net help it, and Christine
could net help it, and that they were all
very miserable. '
Finally she was persuaded te let him see
Christine, "just for five minutes."; The
peer girl came te him, a shadow of her
gay self, and weeping in his arms, told
him he must bid her geed-by forever. The
five minutes were lengthened into a long,
terribie hour, and Franz went back te New
Yerk with the knowledge that in that
hour his life had been broken in two for
One night toward the close of November
his friend Leuis called. "Franz" he said,
"have you heard that Chistine Stromberg
is te marry old Clarke?"
u Ne one can trust a woman. It is a
shame of Christine."
"Leuis, speak of what you knew. Chris
tine is an angel. If a woman appears te de
wrong, there is probably some brute of a
man behind her forcing her te de it."
" I thought she was te be your wife."
" She is my wife in soul and feeling. Ne
one, thank Ged, can help that. If I was
Clarke, I would as willingly marry a corpse
as Christine Stromberg. De net speak of
her again, Leuis. The peer innocent child!
Ged bless her !" and be burst into a passion
of weeping that alarmed his friend for his
reason, but which was probably its salva
tion. In a week Franz had left for Europe,
and the next Christmas, Christine and
James Barker Clarke were married, and
began housekeeping in a style of extrava
gant splendor. People wondered and ex
claimed at Christine's reckless expenditure,
her parents advised, her husband scolded ;
but though she never disputed them, she
quietly ignored all their suggestions.
She went te Paris, and lived like a princess ;
Reme, Vienna, and Conden wondered ever
her beauty and her splendor ; and wbere
aver she went, Franz followed her quietly
haunting her magnificent salons like a
They rarely or never spoke. Beyond a
grave inclination of the head, or a leek
whose profound misery he only understood,
she gave him no recognition. The world
held her name above reproach, and con
sidered that she had done very well te her
self. Ten years passed away, but the changes
they brought were such as the world re
gards as natural and inevitable. Chris
tine's mother died, and her father married,
again; and Christine had a jWi ahd a
daughter. Franz watched anxiously te
see if .this new Jeys -would break up the icy

a flower, would I net love it also?" he
asked himself; "and these little ones, what
have they done?" Se at last he get te
separate them entirely from every one bnt
Christine, and te regard them as part and
portion of his love.
But at the end of ten years a change
came, neither natural or expected. Franz
was 'walking moodily about his library one
night, when Leuis came te toil him of it.
Leuis was no longer young, and was mar
ried new, for be bad round out that the
beaten track is safest.
"Franz," he said, "have you heard
about Clarke? His affairs are frightfully
wrong, and he shot himself an hour age.";
"And Christine? Dees she knew?
Who has gene te her?" "'
" My wife is with her. Clarke shot him
self in his own room. Christine was the
first te reach him. He left a letter saying
he was absolutely ruined."
" Where will Christine and the children
" I suppose te her father's. Net a pleas
ant place for her new. Christine's step
mother dislikes both her and the child
ren." Franz said no mere and Leuis went away
with a feeling of disappointment. "I
thought he would have done something
for her," he said te his wife. "Peer
Christine will be very peer and dependent."
Ten days after, he came home with a
different story. ''There never was a
woman as lucky about money as Cousin
Christine," he said. " Hardy Ss Ball sent
her notice te-day that the property of Rye
beach settled en her before her marriage
by Mr. Clarke was new at her disposal. It
seems the old gentleman anticipated the
result of his wild speculations, and in or
der te provide for his wife, quietly bought
and placed in Hardy's charge two beauti
fully furnished cottages. There is some
thing like an accumulation of sixteen thou
sand dollars of rentage ; and as one is luck
ily empty, Christine and the children are
going there at once. I always thought the
property was Hardy's own before. Very
thoughtful in Clarke."
" It is net like Clarke one bit. I don't
believe he ever did it. It is some arrange
ment of Franz Mullet's."
" Fer goodness' sake don't hint such a
thing Lizzie ! Christine would net go, and
we should have her here very seen. Be
sides, I don't believe it. Franz took the
news very coolly, and he has kept out of
my way since."
The next day Leuis was mere than ever
of his wife's opinion. "What de you
tbmk, Lizzie?'7 he said. " Franz came te
me te-day and asked if JClarke did net
once lean me two thousand dollars. I
told him Clarke gave me two thousand
about the timed we were married."
'"Say leaned Leuis,' he answered,
'te oblige me. Here is two thousand and
the interest for six years. Ge and pay' it
te Christine ; she must need money.' Se
"Is she settled comfortably.?"
" Oh, very. Ge and see her often.
Franz is sure te marry her, and he is
growing rich every day.
. It seemed as if Leuis's prediction would
come true. Franz began te drive out every
afternoon te Ryebeach. At first he con
tented himself with just passing Christine's
gate. But he seen began te step for the
children, and having taken them a drive,
te rest awhile en the lawn, or in the par
lor, while Christine made him a cup of
Fer Franz tired very easily new, and
Christine saw what few ethers noticed : he
had become pale and emaciated, and the
least exertion left him weary and breath
less. She knew in her heart that it was a
pitiful shadow of their first one ! It was
hard te contrast the ardent, handsome
lever of ten years age with the white,
silently happy man who, when October
came, had only strength te sit and held
her hand, and gaze with eager, loving eyes
into her lace.
One day his physician met Leuis en
Broadway. "Mr. Curtin," he said, "your
friend Muller is very ill. I consider his life
measured by days, .perhaps hours. He has
long had organic disease of the heart. It
is near the last."
"Dees he knew it?"
" Yes, he has knewu it long. Better see
him at once."
Se Leuis went at once. He found
Franz calmly making his last preparations
for the great event. "I am glad you are
come," he said ; "I was going te send for
you. See this cabinet full of letters. I
have net strength left te destroy them ;
burn them for me when wheal am gene.
This small packet is Christine's dear little
notes ; bury them with me ; there are ten
of them, every one ten years old."
" Is that all, dear Franz ?"
"Yes; my will has long been made.
Except a legacy te yourself, all gees te
Christine dear, dear Christine 1"
"Yeu love her yet, then, Franz?"
" What de you mean ? I have loved her
for ages. I shall love her forever. She is
the ether half of my soul. In some lives
I have missed her altogether : let me be
thankful that she has come se near te me
in this one."
"De yen knew what you are saying,
" Very clearly Leuis. I have always be
lieved with the eldest philosophers that
souls were created in pairs, and that it is
permitted them in their toilsome journey
back te purity and heaven sometimes te
meet and comfort each ether. De you
think I saw Christine for the first time in
your uncle's parlor? Leuis, I have fairer
and grander memories of her than any
linked te this life. I must leave her new
for a little ; but lie does knew; that is my
hope and consolation."
Whatever were Leuis's private opinions
about Franz's theology, it was impossible
te dissent at that hour, and he took his
friend's last instructions and farewell with
such gentle, solemn feelings as had long
been strange te his heart.
In the afternoon Franz was driven out
te Christine's. It was the last physical
effort he was capable of. Ne one saw the
parting of these two souls. He went with
Christine's arms around him, and her lips
whispering tender, hopeful farewells. It
was noticed, however, that after Franz's
death a strange change came ever Chris
tine a beautiful nobility and calmness of
character, and a gentle setting of her life
te the loftiest aims.
Leuis said she had been wonderfully
moved by the papers Franz left. The ten
letters she had written during the spring
time of their love went te the grave with
him, but the rest were of such an extraor
dinary nature that Leuis could net refrain
from showing them te his cousin, and then
at her request leaving them for her te dis
pose of. They were indeed letters written
te herself under every circumstance, of her
life, and directed te every place in which
she had sojourned. In all of them she was
addressed as " Beloved Wife of my Seul,"
and in this way the peer fellow had con
soled his breaking, longing heart.
Te some of them hehad written imagin
ary answers, but as these all referred te a
financial secret known only te the parties
concerned in Christine's and his own sac
rifice, it was proof positive that he had
written only for his own comfort. But it
was perhaps well they fell into Christine's
hands ; she could net but be a better wo
man for reading the simple records of a
strife which set perfect unselfishness and
childlike submission as the goal of its
Seven years after Franz's death Christine
and her daughter died together of the Ro Re
man fever, and James Barker Clarke jun
