The artist played on his well loved lute,
Till all around were limbed and Mute;
For he breathed firth notes so sweet and clear,
That men and women wept to hear ;
And sang of Wind of human lot,
Till song and singer were qtuto forgot.
And each ono thought within his breast,
Of the thing on earth he Idred the best.
The painter thought of his growing fame,
And the work that should bring hint an endlcss
The poet was trembling with heaven-born might
And he prayed for strength to use it aright. •
The scholar was dreaming of heghts to climb,
And knowledge snateh'd from the gulfs of time.

And prayed for the soul that was passing away.

And of fair green paths with unknown ends.

Stephen Abbott held his little
daughter by the hand; the child en
deavored' 0 stifle tiersniot tiered sobi
while the g at tears rolled down her
face. T e e had just closed over
her mother, and Amy Abbott felt an
unmistakable woe in her heart.
_ " Hush, Amy !" said her father, as
be hawk d her into a carriage. There
was a harshness in his toLe, though
lie meantfit not unkindly, but Ste
phen Abbott was a man who never
indulged in public exhibitions of
Stephen Abbott's .farm would now
miss one who chid much to aid him in
keeping a thrifty Watch over the ex
penses necessary to carry on the bu
siness. It was a few days after the
funeral that he spoke to his &inghter
“ Amy, Lulus!: ,nov: depend upon
yon; the farm feel the loss rf
your mother in ;inore ‘vays than one;
but you are a sen , ;ible gill, and there
fore can aid me eery much in -keep
inf..; matters 4.or,der.”
Now Amy Abbott was about thir
teen years of age, and the re.sponsi
bility she was expected to assume
was very considerable to one of. such
tend -r years.
Ere .Amy Abbott had entered her
eighteenth year, shy bad several. ap
plications for her hand and heart,
but each suitor in turn was referred
to her father, who carefully consider
ed the habits and qualities of the_as
pirants, very ungracefully dismissed
them all; as' in no manner •suitable
for a husband to his daughter. Amy
heard the fiat go forth against sever
al she regarded with great prefer
ence, but she resigned lirself to her
fate with patient humility, . nor
sought to interpose one word in her
own behalf. ,?;)
About this time there appeared in
the village a young men of remarka
ble fine appearance. He was more
over the correspondentof an Million
tial newspaper,. Now, if there was
one profession above. another that
Stephen Abbott, detested, it was that
of journalism. It. was his abomina
tion. As soon, therefore, as he dis
covered that George Wier had made
his daughter's. acquaintance, he sat
faee sternly against the attentions
he was
, paying her. Some of \Ter's
friends took the trouble to inform .
Stephen Abbott that young Wier's
character was unexceptionable, and.
his talents bespoke him a promising;
career.. But farmer Abbott was not appealed to iu a way like that,
and his prejudices °Leo having taken
roqt, it was very hard to eradicate
theta - from an obstinate mind like
his. He denied the young than 'ad
mission to his house, and otherwise
treated him so rudely, that the poor
fellow, who was deeply in love with
Amy, wrote her a farewell letter ex
pressed in the most touching lan
guage, and then departed.
The field now seemed pretty well
free of "popin-jays,'-' as Stephen Ab
bott termed them, and . his mind be
gan to feel some repose.
One day he came riding home, ap
parently in excellent,spirits. He had
been to the posk e offide and received
!a,letter from au old friend ; in fact,
the writer had been one of his youtli
ful sweethearts, who having married
had settled in au' adjacent county.
Stephen Abbott had not seen her for
years, and so when she wrote that,
her husband and herself would be
glad if he would receive her 'son for
a few weeks as a guest,' farmer Ab
bott felt a thrill like that he knew' in
olden times, dart through his heart.
The young luau, was 23 years of
age, and he had been suffering from
a slight illness which 'rendered a
.change of 'air desirable. Moreover,
he vas an enthwiiastic farmer, and
would be sole heir to his fath'er's for
tune. These, thing farmer Abbott
learned from .the letter which 'Mary
Galpin had written to him.
Amy listened to, her father with a
`manner which betrayed no anxiety
to meet the object of his encomiums.
To be sure, she thought it unusual
for him to appear so delighted over
one he had as yet never semi, bat
the poor girl did not know the mo
tive which prompted her father to
applaud . . on,e whose mother he• had
loved in other days.
In due season, Edwin Galpin ar
rived at Stephen Abbott's dwelling.
He was received by Stephen Abbott
_with a welcome so warm that it must
have been gratifying to him. :Ile
was.a grave and dignified young man,
a great reader and' a profound tallie:r
on sgiicultural subjects. Perhaps it
mavhave piqued Amy's vanity that
so lunch time and atten
tion to her father, and so little to
herself, But after awhile he com
=menced to seek her society, and she
became reconciled enough to treat
him as a favorite, guest of her father's
house. •
Weeks flew by, and Edwin Galpin
Announced his intention of returning
to bis home, taut Stephen Abbott
would not listen to any inch propo
‘Aul, and the consequence was that
;eadpin had to-lengthen his visit.
In many little ingenious ways he
continued to throw Edwin and Amy
SZGARDLEIBB or Dzsoraismose gra Ars. warn;
together, and the fruit of this scheme
soon began to manifest itself. Gil
pin began, to' find himself desiring
the presence of Amy more frequently
than bad been his wont, and matters

she hesitated in placing her hand
arid heart in his keeping, it was only
natural. Up to this moment she had
not learned to love' him, but she
could not deny that she respected
bim, and regarded his talents. The
rest might follow, and she surely was
building on a good foundation. ,
Edwin Galpin never seethed 'so
well contented as when in Amy's so
ciety. He read to her and walked
with her, begiuling many an hour
that would have hung tediously on
her hands, for her father had provid,
ed the assistance of a housekeeper,
which gave her more relaxation from
the duties hitherto imposed i.upon
When Edwin Gilpin disclosed his
feelings to Stephen Abbott, he had
small reason to complain of the way
he was received. , The farmer was
scarcely able to restrain the joy he
felt at the happy termination of his
Wishes ; and when the father and
mother of Edwin wrote, testifying
their approval, Stephen's delight was
A round fortune httd-been amassed
by farmer Abbott, and as the Galpins
‘4re well provided with the 'world's
gbods, Stephen rejoiced in the know-,
lidge that his daughter would be
properly settled in this life.
Edwin Galpin at last left for his
home, ,to return again in a month.
True to his promii , e, he came back
to Amy and to love. It would be
difficult to describe the exact state of
Amy Abbott's feelings. .She -c)nld
not ileny that-she felt gfeat respect
fur Edwin Gulpin's learning, and she
almost at times fancied she loved
him. Perhaps the remembrance of
the handsome young journalist still
lingered'in her mind, forbf all Amy's
lovers, tlii4 was the one' who made
the most lasting impression on her

f:rates the recollections of those hal
cyon days of our youth, and Amy
Abbott after awhile could not help
confessing to: herself that Edwin
Galpiu was worthy of her heart's best
There was a re-union of the, Gal
pin and Abbott families. Mr. .and
Mrs. Galpiu came to visit Stephen
and hiS daughter Amy. It was the
first time Mary Galpin had' seen her
former lover since her marriage, and
as a„consequence tht]ir conversation,
during the early portion of her visit,
chiefly related to olden times. It was
arranged between them that they

chaso h fine farm, situated between
his Old place and the village, while
Mr. Galpin furnished the house and
supplied the stock and farming fin- '
plenients, besides giving Edwin the
control of a large sum in bank.
The wedding took place early iu
the spring, and the young people im
mediately moved to their new hoine.
Edwin , Galniu's energy and judgment
soon made his farm the wonder and
admiration of all who saw it. He
was a very happy man, rejoiciag , in
the best cultivated place. and hand

had also become EO popular that .he•
was elected to filll several positions

far matters went along very prosper

They had been married 'about a
year when 'business called Edwin
from home several-. weeks. It was
shottly after his return that he one
}day remarked-to li t is wife :" I forgot
;to tell you, 4my, that I met one of
your old friends while away, and
gave him an invitation to visit us
during the coming summer."
" of my old friends ?" enquir
ed Amy. '
" ies, one of yours as well as
mine - We were school fellows. Now,
can you guess his name r
" Indeed I can't," replied his wife.
Who was it, pray tell me?"
-" George Weir," responded her
husband, with t laugh at her confu
sion, for she turned very 'red.
" I had ceased to remember him at
all. Indeed, he had qUite passed
away from' my mern.ry.
"Never mind, Amy," replied her
husband, patting her cheek, " you
need not oe ashamed to acknowledge
George Weir as one of your suitors,
fur ho has risen to be a very import
ant man, and wields a great deal of
influence.' He told rue all about the
times he knew you. He ib a good .
fellow and is apprelciated by all who
know him."
That day Amy Galpin.
more deeply upon the past than she
bad done since she became a wife.
Sha called to mind tithe hours that
George Weir and herself had passed
together, and Wondered if ho really
had forgotten them. Poor. Amy, she
Was treading upon dangerous ground,
.but it was pleasant, nevertheless, to
call up these old fancies, and invest
thcril, with some of the glories of the
past. George Weir was still single.
She would father have heard that he,
was married; not that she doubted
any latent weakness that might. still
linger in her mind; but then it would
be safer, for if the matrimonial bonds
are not always a barrier, they at least
serve as a. veil, and that is a protec
tion, albeit a poor one in time of
As the days and weeks passed
away,,Arur grew familiar with thei
expected Visit, and her heart no lon
ger fluttered when she thought of it.
So, *when Oeorg,e Weir really did ap
pear at thti fartn r -Amy was • able to
meet him With less embiirrassment
than she would have experienced' at
an earlier date.
He was somewhat cli inged; ho had
grown stouter, and contact with the
world had brushed rid'something of
youthful exuberance; but in all else
ho was the saute. He still preserved
the same fervid glow of enthusiasm,
the same hopeful and sanguine teim
perativnt, but the old look of the
eyes was. still there., Perhaps Any
Gulpin recognized the last mole
surely than the rest, when he gaze
fixedly into,her face.
I once heard of a student who so
carefully studied the face of the hea
vens that ho was able to give a cor
rect reply regarding the weather
without rising from his -- pillow, no
matter what hoar he- was awakened.
It may have been that knowledge
akin to this enabled Edwin Galpin to
determine the gradual decay, hour
'by hour, of the affection she had so
recently pledged to himself. He
could trace its waning as surely as
he could mark the furrow his plow
share had upturned. He was of a
proud and sensitive nature, and
never could , bring himself to confess
to his wife that there was a• shadow
on hiri bead., Had he done so t ere
might have been fewer regrets in af
ter days. But he permitted things
to take their own course, and pa
tiently waited for Amy to give ,him
the opportunity to have an explana
tion, which of course she never did.
- She no longer met him with the
glad smile she used to wear, and she
was not near so ready to kiss his hat
brow when he came in from the field,
as she formerly had been wont to do.
He noticed this, and more too, and
knew that-sooner or later some hearts
would feel enough of sorrow.
Weir was the constant companion
of Anai, and she seemed to be as
much infatuated with him as of old.
There will doubtless be many who
will feel disdain for the want of repo
lution and independence of character
betrayed by Edwin Galpin; but be it
remembered, he loved his wife .so
well that he could never induce him
self to believe that she would persist
in a course so calculated to bring
trouble to them both', when she calm
ly reflected on the risk she was in

reached the ears of Stephtn. Abbott,
which caused him to seek an inter
view with his son-in-law. ',lt was'
late in the afternoon when Edwin
visited Abbott's farm. The two sat
and talked until late, and Stephen
Abbott came to the conclusion to ac
company Galpin home, and speak
.with his daughter next morning. It
was'dark when they started - to walk
for Galpin's house, and ere they
reached it a lurid light lit up the
heavens and the loud . cry of "tire"
was heard from the people of the
village -
Running as fast as possible, they
discovered Galpin's house ih. flames.,
The lower floor was a _sheet of fire,
and a cry of,horror arose as Amy ap
peared in one of the upper witidowS,
and stretched forth her hands in sup
plication. No one dare venture into
that'furnat':e, and there were no lad
ders at hand.
"Save my child—save her 1". cried
,Stephen Abbott; but no one seemed take , :the risk.
"Will no one save her ?" he cried
wringing his hands.
There was a stern look on the face
of Edwin Galpin as be approached

standing with the cro:d as pale a's a
ghost. He lard his hand heavily : .on
his shoulder, and placino. ° his lips on

his clenched teeth, " Now is your

There was -a deep meaniril , in these
words,:and a terriblelearnatuess in
his manner.

Weir, as he shrunk from Galpin's

"Save her—yon love her !" hoarse

grip on Weir's Shoulder.

Flinging him out of his path, as
he cast upon him a look of ineffable
disdain and loathing, Gilpin fipraug,

he reappeared nevertheless, bearing
on his strong arms the form of his
wife securely wrapped in.

Laying her at hen father's feet, he
reeled and fell forward to the earth.
It was the last time his eyes ever be
held earth's.gladness. Never again
might he look upon field or grain.
Stone blind from henceforth must
walk Edwin Gilpin, and a child
could lead him. Ho was fearfully
burned, and for the sake of one
whom the fire had not even scorched.
It is pleasing to record the sequel
Whatever may have been the feel.
ings of Amy Galpin previous to the
event just recorded, one thing is
true : never did woman more sincere
ly repent for the indifference she had
manifested toward her husband, and
never was there a more devoted wife
than she proved to be. For hours
she would sit with her arms around
Edwin's neck- and her cheek pressed

It is noii commonly believed that ;
where two kersons 'sleep together,
one abstracts from the other some
amount of vital force. This is es s.

sleeps upon a narrow bed arida hard
