I Oiie evening, soon after I bad made
' this resolve, Lyndon aud I took a stroll
down by the river side. There we met
nu ugly crone, a fortune teller, belonging
' to a straggling band of gipseys, who
j were temporarily waudeiing about the

: the occasion.
J "Why should I wish to know my for

Unfolds itself nil to slowly, it is true ;
but I fancy it is scarcely lovely enough
to charm me with a contemplation of its
"Let us hear what she has to say.
Tom," said Lyndon, in his cheerful
voice. "It can do no harm, asnredly."
"As you please," I answered, recall
ing tbe gipsey.
She thanked mo as I placed soma
money in her band, and tlten, as I step
ped back, she turned to Lyndon, who
stood with a bright but half incredulous
smilo upon bis face.
'You are a very pleasaut tempered
young gentleman," she said, gazing upon
his open palm with a wise and mysteri
ous look upon her dark face. "A happy
life lies before you. You will love, aud,
what is better, your lady will be true.".
Thank you, good mother !" laughed
Lyndon. "I could not ask for a better
fortune, I am sure."
There was something in tbe woman's
weird voice which sounded strangely
prophetic ; and I turned, almost earnest
ly, towards her, to learn what she would
say for me.
A nd what of my fortune J" I asked
She turned her piercing eyes to mine
for a moment, and then took my hand.'
"You are restless, changeable,'" she
caid. "Rocked hither and thither by
every wind and tide, like a vessel with
out moorings. You will drift on for a
time; but you, too, will lore a noble
woman. You will be content with her
love, and it shall prove an anchor to
Afterwards, it teemed to me that she
must have been gifted with supernatural
power. But now I think her precept
ire faculties were rery acute,- and she

reading characters from actions aud fa
ces. ' Sbe left a Lleinwith u, and tbeu
g'ided ewiftly and silently away. Lyn
don aud I turned slowly towards home.
The house seemed mora brilliantly light
ed than usual, and upon oar arrival we
were informed that yonng lady, Mins
Agatha Rodney, bad just reached Maple
River, and the guest chamber had bceu
prepared for her, according to Mr. An
Lyndon . entiled at this intelligence,
for Miss Rodney was his conain. Sbe
had been one of his favorites in bis yon
ger days, bnt be had cot seen her for
years, as both had beea engaged with
their studies. - '
I was greatly annoyed by what I in
wardly termed Miss Rodney's untimely
visit. I intended to leave Maple River
in a mouth, at furthest, to be absent for
years, peihaps ; and I diriLked to bo
disturbed in my last days at the dear old
bouse. Still, I would not fail to wel
come tho lady for Lyndon's sak, aud so
I met her with courteous words.
For Lymton's sake I tried to assist in
entertaining her first, and then it beenme
very pleasaut to me to do so for my own.
Mi?s Rodney was daazlingly beautiful,
with a fascina'i : manner, whose influ
j ence I sought n vain to resist. I was
intoxicated with her beauy, for sbe
was good and glorious upon earth. I
had never been iu the slightest degree
impresribld to woman's charms before ;
had ne,ver loved until I met her. But
there was a peculiar softness in lnrex-pre.-bion
and inatinrr towards me, which
won mo iu spile of myself. I asked her
to bo my wife, aud flic pronvscd. I re
membert'd the gipsey's prophecy, ba
lieved, aud was satisfied.
The wraiis fled swiftly, and one morn
ing I went out to meet Agatha iu the
garden. I found her earnestly engaged
in conversation T.ith Lyndon. His
voice m raisod to a higher key than
usual, and he seemed to be expostulating
with her. AVondt ring somewhat, I
passed on, until her word", flowing clear
ly through the g trdeu alleys, reached

enough to-believe in me."

''you have gone too far in prcsnmiitg up

fully. "It wouid be the height of folly
for you to do it. because he would never

not listen to reason, you may do your

'And he will know I speak the truth,
for I never j et deceived him !"
'You never have, dear Lyndon !" I
exclaimed, breaking in upon them like a
ghost i.-i the pallor of my passion. "As
for yon," I said, turning to where
Agatha shrieked and feigned to swoon,
"I must never look upon your face
I think I would have fallen but for
Lyndon's protecting arm. lie led me to
my room, bade me lie down, and bath
ed my forehead, soothing me into a sem
blance of quietude.
Agatha left Maple River ; how, or
when, I know not: aud I rose and
stalked about more restles? than before,
beting the sunshine, the south wind, the
bird songs, the flowers loving the tem
pests, the lightnings and the storms. I
bad no mother's metuory to restrain me
for I had not yet learned to love one
I had never known and I cursed all
women alike, as false-hearted, frivolous
and despicably vain.
I besought Lyndon to accompany me
upon my travels, but he refused.- He
was already indebted to me for bis edu
cation be must work now. I was
wealthy, and could afford to travel- But
he was poor and proud he would never
be an idler.
So I departed alone. Hither and
thither I waudered, "drilling like a ves
sel without moorings." Letters from
Lyndon reached me, telling me of his
labors, his triumphs. Then he wrote iu
a saddened straiu, giving me the news
of his father's sudden death.
I mourned 51r Anthon sincerely, for
he had always been to me a valued
friend. I wrote to Lyndon, asking him
to take charge of my affairs at Maple
River, just as his father had done. After
a time bit letters resumed their old
cheerful tone, and at last he tent me
word that he was toon to be married.
I had never teen Rote Dorr, who was
to be bit wife. Lyndon teemed to fear that
I would be displeased with his marriage-,

and enumerated at length the many vir
tues of bis betrothed. I must come back
to Maple? River, he sai l. It would be
pleastnter for mo than ever before, aud
Rose should be my sister. ' ' .
I smiled at this, half pitying Lyndon,
as I remembered my own experience in
love. But when (wo years Lad passed
away I detetmiued to return Lyndon
urged it so strongly, even proposing that
Rose and ho should leave Maple River,
if I preferred solitude.
I answered, that if he did so I would
never visit the place again, and so be
I took ray way homeward slowly,
writing sometimes to Lyndon ; thongh
I did not tell him tho precise time at
which I expected to reach Maple River,
for. I wished to surprise him, in a certain
degree, at least. I wished lo see wheth
er he waa as happy ii his married life as
he represented, so I would not give him
an opportunity to spread a mask of prep
aration before my eyes.
It was evening when I reached homt!,
tue twilight ol early spi tug. 1 bs trees
were just budding, the hyacinths aud
daffodils were in bloom, and the whole
air was sweet. A bush seemed to bang
over the house and over the river, very
soothing to the seuso of a weary wati
derer. I paused a moment upon the porch.
The door opened, aud a servant came
out lie recognized me at once, and
was about to rush iu rrith the news of
my arrival, but I checked him.
"Is iMr. Anthon at horn s ?" I asked.
Yes sir,"' was the reply; 'he and
Mrs. Anthon are spending tho evening
in the library."
"You need not aunounce I will

He bowed, aud stood aside for me to

They were so happy, so content !
And I, a weary pilgrim, stood at the
doorway, as dazed a3 I might have been
with a glimpse of heaven. I wasvery
weary, and there was something in that
low song which touched me to the heart.
It was not that it brought sweet re men
brances of my own childhood. Perhaps
if I had ever heard my mother's song, it
might havrj made me better, purer ; and
now, as I stood, something like rever
ence for her whose lile was taken for
mine, rushed over me for the first time.
I had never known why my life had
been so ntterly desolate until now.
How long I stood with that weary
sonl-bnnger within me, I cannot tell. I re
membering wondering, as 1 looked upon
Rose's white face, whether it was the
moonlight, or the firelight, or- the mist
abont my eyes, which cast the halo
round her head.
The servant remained in the hall.
surprised at my strange conduct, or
enrious to observe the meeting.. I turn
ed back and entered the parlor.
"You may tell them I am here," I
said, briefly, as I passrd him.
A moment afterward Lyndon rushed
into the room with his eager welcome.
lie seemed as young and joyous as ever ;
and I bad grown so old !
"I'm tired," I said, in reply to his
questions about my health, "both in body
"No wonder !' he exclaimed. "You
must never wander away in such a
senseiess manner agaia. We will keep
yon here, rose and I, and make you
happy in spite of yourself I"
"you are very good," I answered,
with a smile "But I fancy the elements
of happiness or misery lie iu my own
bosom. Still, the sight of your face al
ways did bring me content. Rose is

"O yes. Sbe is scarcely ever ill,
though she may ba some paler since the

you as a sister, and very grateful for all

I, believe I winced at this. I was
something of a cynic jet A woman's
scorn had been bitter enough, but a wo
man's gratitude must be more tiresome
still. Then I remembered the picture
I bad teen in the library, and banished

I was not long in doubt. Sbe came iu
almost immediately, and Lyndon rose,
proudly, I thought, aud said :
'My wif e, Tom, as J your - lister
Rose." '"' -""- -,...--,,;-
She extended her haud with a few
words of welcome, and took her teat near
us, with a bright but pleasant smile up
on her face. Shs did not seem demon
strative, and yet she was r.ot iby. I
felt at ease at once. She seemed to ex
pect me to act my own pleasure, and her
presence was not an unpleasant restraint
as I had feared it might be.
She toon marshalled us .into the li
brary, saying the parlor was cheetlest
without a tire, and drew up an armchair
for me opposite Lyndon 'a -by the grate.
She did not object to cigar tmoke, but
said the seemed to thrive in it ; and in a
a few momenta I was puffing away at a
choice Havana, my feet upon tbe fonder,
ami elbow resting upon the arm of my
chair, wondeiing where my weariness bad
Then rose said to Lyndon that he
) must take me up to my room to bathe
my face when I had finished smoking,
and flitted away. So, when I threw
aside my cigar, we went up stairs, and
there Lyndon left me.
"Yon will find everything right iu yonr
room, I think," ho said, as he turned to
go down-again. "Rose is very precious
in snch matters."
Everything was right j just at hand,
somehow, and there was a cheerful fire
freshly lighted within the grate. The
room at first scrmed unchanged", but
when I came to look more closely about r
me, it appeared brighter than ever be
fore The furniture was just the same,

vase stood upon the mantel, filled with
fragtaut hyacinths, thin lily-like green
leaves drooping gracefully about the
blooms. There was a comfortable easy

I took my place near Lyudou, aud
asked for my little uamesake.
"lie ia aJeep,,' Rose said, "and I do
not wish to disturb him to night."
Then she touched the bell, and tea
was bronght rp ; a cosy little supper of
her own ordering, and with tny favorite
dishes too. When I laid my head upon
the pillows that night. I felt moro at
peace than I bad been before iu years.
The days passed Rose treated me
as a sister, but a sister only. I never
met her, accidentally, in any of the se
cluded garden paths.- Her eyes always
met mine serenely and quietly, and yet
she was almost as frank and fren as
Lyndon himself. If it chanced that I
did not go' with Lyndon to his ofnee,
but remained at home throughout the
day, I would find an entertaining volume
upon the tablo in my room, and Rose
would be unusually occupied with her
household affairs. Or, If sbe brought
out her sewing npnn the poarch in the
afternoon, to watch for Lyndon's return,
the boy was al'.vays playing at her feel,
always seeming to come between us and
keep us a littla apart, though Lo was!
very dear to both.
I pondered upon these things one
evening as I sat alone in my room. I
was glad that it was so; glad there was
one woman in this world' who did not
expect me to fall down and worship her ;
and I found myself repealing the lines
"None knelt at her feat confessed lovers in
t brail ;
They kne't to God more than they used
that was all."
It was true. She seemed to bring me
up to the level of her pure thought and
life, and the bitter cynicism of mv na
ture vauisbed. I had never known
what it was to have a home before
never realized the full beautiful meauing
of the word.
