I lookedon a 1e.141 of !lady,
• Hicihnisiiitiverdure was there ;
And sweet tloiers.profusely blossoved,
Filling with fragrance, the air.
Fruits of rare tints and iipe n ess, •
• Hung glowing from many 'a tree ;
And the golden grain seem to whisper
" 'Tis the harvest time ,that you see."
Not far from this field was another, •
But oh, hOw unlike were the two! •
In this grew rani; thorns and thistles '
.Not"a &Wei. bearianglea:vrii)l4evA
The trees which here spread their bran r chis,
Were fruitless, and leafless, and bare ,
But yet, from the seeds of the thistles,
We knew it was harvest time there! .
.r 1
I looked again =Oho &mein
Had entered within the two fields,
And busy hands were Bemiring:
What the earth in the harvest-time yields;
Then I thought how nnlike,are the products
WhiCh the gleaners in their work have
Why not all gather grain, fruits and flowers
And leave ,thorns and thistles unbound?
Then a ". Still small voice " to me whispered:
The gleaners were sower in spring,
The,seede they then planted are ripened
And these are tke fruits which they bring.
71 ye sow the good seeds of true friendship,
And mercy, and, and love:
Ye shall reap all these things in your earth
And have sheaves to take home above..
By and by there cometh a harvest,
God's angels the reapers will be,
And all the works of thy , life time,
Will be judged when He - culleth for thee.
Dear Friends, in our twofold mission,
Of sowing and reaping on earth,
kfuy our thoughts, and motives, and actions,
Be blessed with a heairenty Meth.

Beaufort House was full. My aunt
Lady Stanhope, thought that mid
summer was even more the time for
festivity and enjoyment than Christ
mas. ' - She used .to say that all na
ture was bliihe and gay at that time
and that everything w amoret'enjoy
able whenthright sunshine danced on'
green trees, sweet flowers, and rip
pling witteKthan when leaden clouds
hung over Ice-bound lakes and snow
clad earth and I agree with her.—
And so it was that hot and eventful
July foundme, Fred Mervyn, among
a dozen other visitors at eaufort
House. My aunt was a widow 54
many years Standing ; and her two
daughters, Helen and •Edith; bright,
pretty girls of twenty and twenty
two, were the object of her fondest,
almost idolizing love.
"It followed
naturally then, that wen they said
that the c'euntry was dull,' after Lon
don gaiety, that '.they obtained easy
permission to ask" as many of their
young • friends and companions as
they chose to their " stately home."
Of course I was one of the faVored
number. I had played with lhetn-as
children, ." fagged' for them when I
gal() schoolboy days, and spent my
holidays there ; and now, though a
Guardsman and a man of" the world,
I was looked upon as e sort of useful
animal, who was, always to be ready
to dance with them if an unpleasant
candidate for a valse• appeared, to
ride in the park when they wished,
or take which side of the game at
crequet best suited their plans. And

When a man reaches six-and-twen

call you " Fred,"'and tell you frank

any.noniiense. I will. not pretend to
say' that was the only reason that in
cluded me to renounce the trip to
Switzerland with others Of my regi

their only son and. brother daring
their month by the , sea. Man is a

I shall never forget the game we
played that lovely morning at Beau

deep calculation and cautious-strokes
were well rewarded by the clapping
of theie dear little hands and the 'ex

enemy's ball or passed through my
'own hot - rp. How natural - and -unaf
fected she was, unspoilt by the adu
lation of the world or the caresses of
friends and relations. How could
repress the 10°6 of love as she 'rais
ed her bright eyes in such eager ap
peal for direction ? and 'how my
heart beat with delight as I saw, the
half smile of happiness that played
round her mouth as the lashes fell on
her crimsoned _cheek. We stood

banished by M. Hill, who seemed to

" He's one . of those lucky fellows

and looked at Maud. Her face , was
very pale,, and a l cold, determined
look in her eye shOwed that she had
heard what had been said ; , and it
made my heart nink.
'At that instant Mand's turn came,
and without a word, she struck her
ball and walked away, leaving me ini
