Mrs, Rutherford's 'Governess.
She was standing under the veran
da in the last sunset rays, with the
honey suckles dancing abov4 her
head. , A graceful head it was,
crowned with masses of brown' hair,-
parted simply over the smooth brow,
and gathered into a heavy knot. She
bad a wonderful beautiful face, too,
though the features were not perfect
ly faultless; the mouth, folded in
full rich curves of melting scarlet
was still too wide to be strictly beau
tiful ; and the chin, though clear-cut
and delicate, was too prominent.--
1m 50 to
I 6 acres
I. n long
But the almost marvelous beauty of
the face was in the eyes ; large and
lustrous, and of the - deepest brown,
changing to a derkeri , hue with the
least emotion, and with a dreamy,
far away look in their depths, an ex
pression ',that was not quite sadness,
but was still that "something that
makes think of tears,"
• Her complexion' was as clear and
creamy as the petals of a white rose,
and as colorless, too ; no flush ever
rose to stain "the white cheek;'and
the brow which the brown hair shad
ed ;was as pure as a pow-drift.
She wore a dark gray dress, that
floated about her graceful figure in
heavy lustreless folds, its- sombre
plainness unrelieved by any orna
ment. There was a little expression
of coldness in her face, haughtiness
it might have been, but for the look
of sweetness about the month and
the misty shadow of sadness in the
She was a person who& yoti would
look at twice , meeting her anywhere
and always with a vague feeling of
pity, though . the determined, self-re
liant-poise of the head, and the firm,
resolute lips asked for none. She
looked like a person who might have
loved and hated passionately ; and ,
you would- wonder - what had-frozen'
her into this torpid, indifferent, calm,
that the. placid inanimate face and
the dreamy eyes expressed.
A'ripple of song floated out from ,
the open window of 'the drawing
rrm. It was "Mignon's Song,"aung•
in a clear girlish voice, sweet and'
graceful, but , without power -or path
-013. It ceased, and a geiftleman step
ped softly through the window into
the veranda where she stood. She
turned with a little start. .
" Why, Mr. Kingsley," she said,
" how quietly you came. Lthink you
must possess the Invinsible Prince's
wonderful cap, which gave the• pow
er of moving without • touching the
earth, you know." _
" And it carried one wherever he
most wished to be, did it not ? e I do
not wonder that you think I wore it.
If I had, it would certainly 'have
brought me here, to your• side," look
ing earnestly into her eyes.'
The dreamy look had not left them
yet, and her face had a bewildered
expresSion, as if she were wandering
in some far-off dreamland where his
voice could not reach her, or, if it
did, fell on heedless ears—ears that

upon the earth while they stood there

" Oh; hush I you don't know what

them fixed on the dal k [ Bhadow that

" Yes, I have deceived you all.—
Your sister engaged me as gover

tell her of 14 Marriage ; 'because it
was so painful to me to speak of it.

thiii dark gray,dress as a sort of:em

that may pass away—but of a sad-

utterly hopeless." •
The face into which she looked''as
she ceased speaking was pale: and
rigid, and the ; lips • were tightly com
pressed ; but he said quietly,.. in a
voice that was calm and unfaltering,
"You said that his--6-youF husband's

" Arthur Nelson."
" You are sure that that was his
real name? Might he not haVe giv

"1 don'ts know. 2ossibly; I never

same tone of careless indifference.
"I have had some sorrow in, my
own life," he continued, in the same
qniet,grave tone—"a trouble strange
ly like your Own. I had a cousin
who was left an orphan early—in
his - infancy,iudeed—and was brought
up with us, so that he was to Alice--
Mrs. Rutherford—and me like a
brother. He was abbot three years
younger than I—a bright, roguish
little fellow, the pet of the family;
but he grew up to be wild and dis
sipated. He left his home when he
was sixteen years old, and for years
we heard nothing of him ; but at last
about two years ago, he came home
to us, seeking refuge and protection;
we could' gather nothing from his
wild story, except that he murdered'
some one, and that officers were fol
lowing him. Of course we concealed
hith : the ties of blood are stronger
than the claims of justice. He staid
here ip this house, concealed for
months ; then we obtained a passage
for him to Europe, in a steamer
whose captain had been a friend to_
my father, and who concealed him
in his own state-room. We have
heard from him occasionally since."
He looked down into the pallid
face, into the dark eyes fixed upon
his face, with a look of wondering,
bewilbered indfuiry, and said, "His
name was Arthur Nelson Kingsley."
They stood there a moment in si
lence. His face was very pale, and
his lips pressed rigidly together; but
there was the look on his face of one
who has struggled
. with himself, a
sharp, - desperate struggle, and has
come off conqieror. -'
"Shall we 'go in ?" he said, at
length,• as , caltilly as if their conver
sation had been a commonplace chat;

dow into the lighted drawing-room.
At the further end of the room Mrs.
Rutherford was sitting, her little
form almost buried in the eapacidus
depth of a crimson melvet arm-chair.
A bright, prettrilittlewoman of
thirty-seven, with a .face very like
her brother's in features, very unlike
in expression •; she had bright black:
eyes, as, clear and sparkling as, if no
tears had ever dimmed them, and her
graceful 4ttle head was adorned with
a profusion of black ringlets and
bright cherry ribbons. She was evi
dently not at all one of those haughty,
arrogant 'dames who oppreSe meek
governesses, but. a _loving and ten
der-hearted little woman, who . had
been very kind to the friendlesi gov
erness, and had trusted'.her children
to'her care without asking any q l es 7
tions as to her past life, which he
saw was painful for her to speak - -
She ,could hardly understand the
served 'and 'self-reliant nature, so
ferent, front her own ; there v
depths in it which she could not fiith
om.,bitt she seemed so pure and
good that she trusted her completely:
There must have-been • misfortnneln
her past life; she was sure thatlhele
'could have been no guilt.
Mr. Kingsley led her to-Mrs. Ruth

not give herup to another's'eare •.

long been contemplating going in

nearly a year they had heard noth

not stay—that it was better for him
to go. And so, in the first dreary

long winter gassed, cheerless and
lone, but still made brighter to Mad:

had been, by the clinging love of Ni

Kingsley, whey was seeking- always,
through' busy. European cities, - and
p,eaceful hamlets, under bright and,
clouded.skies, in glad, hopeful sun-.
shine, and dreary, alining rains, for
him' who was doomed 'to be all his
life long an outcast and - a wanderer
upon the 'face of the earth. At
length a letter came to the patient
Waiters at home ? saying that he had
found • traces-of him.; and the next
letter, waited for with such anxious
suspense, told them that he had
found him, but that he could never
be restored to them in this world.
He had found him ill, dying, at a
little wayside ' inn ; he had recog
nized his icouein, and told him of his
wife, with' whom. his Jest thoughts_
seemed. to be ; he had begged him
to seek her, and ask her to forgive
him for the wrong that he had done
her. And so he had died there in a
foreign land.; and they to whom he
had caused so much misery wept
tears of unfeigned grief for him, and
remembered him with the blessed, '.
merciful memory in which the dead
are ever held, -striving to_ think of
him only as he had been in other
day , and to forget the wretched
foll and crime that had darkened
his later years. -And so Wallace
