THE MYSTFET OF NATURE.
The works of God ri fair for naught,

Fee bidden in the thing the thought
That animates iu being.
The outward form ia net tbe whole,
Bitterer; part is moulded
To iniane forth an inward soul
. That diinlj is unfolded
Tb shadow, pictured in the lake
By eiery tree that trembles,
Is cast for more than jut the sake
Of that which it rcemb!es.
Tbe dew falls nightly, not alone
l'ccause the nieadows need it,
But on an errand of its own.
lo human ou!s that bred it.
Th stars are lighted in the skie,
Not meri-ly for tl-ir shining.
Vat like the looks of loving eyes.
Jiave roefitiirigs worth diviuiug.
The sani that moan along the shore,
Tbe waves that sigh in blowing,
Are rent to teach a mystic lore.
Which men are wise in knowing.
Tbe clouds around tbe mountain peak,
The rivers in their winaiitfT.
Have secrets which, to all who teek.
Are precious iu the finding.
Thus Nature dwells within our reach,
Hut. though we stand so near her,
We "till interpret half her speech

l u-lar.d; his wan, haircard face frightened
her. H;it dearly as ,-hc loved him, she was
too proud to seek his confidence; o both
were wretched, though each endeavored to
ivr.ccal it ir.itn i he other.
When John saw that ruin was inevitable,
h wrote so Mrs. Atleyne, frankly disclosing
the state of affairs. The mother insisted
that her daughter should return to her ; her
husband could claim her when fortune asain
smiled upon him ; but iu the meantime Mar
garet was better with her ; to spare her anx
iety, it was better she should not know of
her husUnd's dificuhies.
W ith a heavy heprt John ajrreed to all of
Mrs. Aileyne's demands. Margaret's love
was the ouly brightness left in his life ; but,
f course, if she could be happier with her
ni-'iher. he could sacrifice it. His stern. pale
f-i.-s. and con-strained manner a -cted Mar-F-irci
painfully when ho told her he desired
her t accept her mother's invitation.
"He n : lunger loves me ho wishes me
to lrave him." the poor child cried afier

she predated a calm exterior, and John

Margaret returned to the home of her
piil hiHij, calling all her pride to her a-ssis-'
uhc to enable her to appear indifferent;
Im; hr heart was rent by bitter pangs, lor
Mie had jicruaded herself that her husband
ti longer loved her. Whole nights spent in
tears have tracts; pretty Margaret grew
fale and thin, and Mrs. Atleyne began to
1-ur that, after a!!, her tenderness cou Id not
ntitute her darling's happiness. Still,
the eiri never complained, but bore her bur
dcii in proud silence.
Oae iiiirht Margaret was at a bait given
i v an itui tute friend. She had danced a
Tr-.-at deal, and being very tired, sat down
r-ar an open window ; a heavy curtain en
tircly concealed her. Two gentlemen were
s au iin? near, and she beard the conversa-
l- n distinctly.
"o. John Graham, of Baltimorc,i. lnk
rupt ? I alu very sorry to hear it ; he is a
U'Ost honorable fellow," said one.
"Yes." answered the other ; "Iaw him

he married Miss Alleyne, a pretty little doll

'- Jt a heart ; dow she basj deserted him in
l.:s adversity. It is rather hard when a

Margaret's heart gave a great bound.
How she had misjudged him ! how true and
tender he was ! He was alone and in trouble;
surely her place was at his side. Then,
heedless of comments, ehe left her hiding
place. The next day, John Graham's stately
mansion was to be sold. He had taken
great pride in his home ; a thousand tender
I IL I Urn II III II
associations were connected with every room.
.Now, with a heay heart, he wandered
through the deserted apartments. Here
was Margaret's piano, which he had given
her ; the pictures and statues they had cho
sen together; every article appeared like
an old friend. Then a feeling of intense
desolation crept over him he was so utter
ly lonely. The strong spirit was almost
crushed. He threw himself upon the bed,
and wept like a child. A quick, step upon
the stairs, a rustle ot silken robes, a glad
cry, then cling'iDg arms were twined about
his neck, a sott cheek was pressed to his,
tangled curls mingled with hi dark locks.
Was it a dream ? He pressed her close to
make sure ot the reality.and kissed her with
such passionate fervor that Margaret wept
""Margaret, my wife Margaret 1' he
4"Uh, John, how cruel you were to send
me away 1 but I'll never leave you again,
U hen they had both regained calmness,
John Graham explained to his wife that the
next day the house was to be sold he could
not take her into lodgings perhaps she had
better return to her mother. But Marga
ret firmly refused.
'"Any place that is good enough lor you,
John, is good enough for me. My place is
with you, I can assist you more than yoa
think," she said.
Then Margaret commenced the battle of
life in earnest. It is not easy to turn from
a life of pleasure and luxury to one of com
parative poverty. Margaret at first did not
find her path strewn with roses; there were
diiSeulties to be encountered, slights to be
sacrificed ; but shi: had a brave heart, and
love had changed tha gay, careless girl into
the tender, self-sacrificing woman. She be
came her husband.' s closest friend, his best
advi.ser, the sympathizing confident of all
his plans ; ever ready to cheer in moments
of depression the Si st to rejoice in his suc
cess. John Graham is a wealthy man azain
now : success has crowned his efforts ; but
ever blesses the adversity which taught him
to know the real value of his wife.
So Margaret found her mission as a de
voted wife and mother, much to her moth
er's amazement ; and John Graham found
he had married not a pretty butterfly ot
fashion, but an earnest, loving woman.

in the easy chair opposite. It would be
hard to give her up, but with either of
these two men he felt that she would be
West Ilarley wrote :
"Mr, Dorlan : For many months I
have felt a deep interest in your daughter,
and am bold enough to hope that my affec
tion is iu a degree returned. I am not a
rich man, but I have a lair business and
strength and energy, and my wife would
have a certainty of the love aud reepect of
an honest. man. With your permission,
I will be pleased to call upon her.
Respectfully yours, West Harley."
Clarence Hillsdale wrote:
Dear Sir: lam deeply and sincerely
in love with your daughter. I propose to
make her my wife, with your consent. My
name, position and means are ' well known
to you. I await your reply.
Yours, Clarence Hillsdale.
The first was a faithful counterpart of
himself in bis younger days. There were a
few improvements, such as a little-better
prosuect, a few more dollars than he pos
sessed at twenty-five, but the principle, the
straightforward honesty and strength of
purpose were there.
The other was the very man he had in
his mind for months. Kverybody knew the
solidity and worth of the great banking
house of the Hillsdale Brothers. All knew
Clarence, the younger, to be a thorough
man of business and a gentleman. He drove
his hand.-ome bays with graee and ease, but
never with recklessness. He gave a supper
now and ihen, when champaigue and Made
ria flowed like water ; but he went to his
chamber with a clear ye and steady hand.
.Men found him always at his post, with his
t.ur race Hushed witu health, and not a
trace ot dissipation wrinkled a single fea
ture. It was hard to choose between them
Perhaps Ruth could choose. So he spoke :
Undue, come here."
She came with her well bred, graceful
step, and leaned over his chair.
He gave her the letters and she read them
over carefully. A blush t-tolcoip, mantling
brow and cheek when she concluded est
llariey's letter, and at 'the end of Hills
dale's a delighted exclamation escaped her.
"You caunot marry both. Which shall
"Papa, I don't know. I used to really
love 'Vest, until Clarence came ; but now
well Clarence is rich and stylish, and yet
West good and true. You shall decide."
"And you will abide by my decision?" j
"With all mi heart, papa."
Ruth went back to her easy chair, and
gave the matter entirely to pupa's superior
judgment, and he, with quite as much, if
not a degree or so more anxiety than he had
felt at his own matrimonial settling, sat
back aud reflected.
Honesty and truth were jewels seldom
found, but with money and pow-r. on the
other side of the scale, he was afraid they
would sink into nothingness.
"Well, 1 will wait. Some way I shall
receive the truth ot the matter, aud know
into whose hands to place the happiness of
my little Ruth."
"Lo you know young Harley ?" he asked
"Yes. Bless you, who don't? He is
one of our solid young men."
"Ho you know Hilisdale ?"'
"O, yes. He's another. One of the
best fellows in the city."
So there it was. Both were perfection.
Ruth liked both and so did he. He could
not choose between them.
Thesi letters arrived on the second of De
cember. On the fourth each gentleman re
ceived a brief note from Mr. Dorian, with a
few pleasant but unsatisfactory lines. He
would consider, he said, and give his answer
if they would wait with patieuce.
On the 24th there was a fair at thechurch.
It was magnificent, from its foundation, and
its object was to decorate with greater
splendor th-j already splendid edifice.

dollars per bite, and dainty useless knick
knacks priced at five times their real value,
besieged every visitor, and he was a hard

West Harley, and papa Dorian whispered:
" "Rut hie, you 11 never have a better op

And Ruth studied.
They did not stay away a moment longer
than etiquette demanded. As soon as they
could frame an excuse, they sauntered to
ward her table. Of course they were not

"Yes, I believe they are. What do you
piwot in return?":
"My price you see, is ten dollars ; but in
a case like this, we trust more to the gener

She said this with a charming smile, and
he nlaeed a little roll of bills in her hand.
"You will take the remainiuir pair, will
you not, Mr. Harley?"' She asked, while

"I know, but think how great the son

West Harley is more sensible, was
papa's short reply.
They went away, each bearing a pair of
slippers wrought by her dear little fingers,
and each within his heart hope enough to
make him happy, and Ruth lost her chance
to study her two lovers.
Long before the close of the evening Papa
Dorian got sleepy, and started for home.
Kuth was in good hands, and he was too
tired to stay there and stand the heavy fire
and constant demands upon his purse and
patience, so he found his overcoat and furs
iu the ante-room, and presently was trudg
iusr alona toward his comfortable mansion.
A lithe-figure passed him at the end of
the block, and under the light from the
street lamp, he recognize West Ilarley. He
was in a hurry, aud with a little curiosity
Papa Dorian hurried too, and kept quite
near. All at once he disappeared, Papa
Dorian rubbed his eyes. Where in the
world did he go? Ah I Ihere was a gro-
eery store on the corner.,, Possibly he might
have goue iu there. A few steps more, aud
Papa Dorian was pceriug in at the , glass
les, he was there, and so the curiosity
hex outside watched ana waited.
It was tor a long while, tor his strange
young man was superintending the tying
up ot mysterious parcels, and finally the
roiling out of a barrel of flour.
"What in the world is the fellow buying

took out his pocket-book and paid a bill
"The-se articles must be delivered to'
night," he said as he opened the door.
'All riglr, sir!"
Weil, Papa Dorian looked after the tall
ligure as it sped out of sight, and began to
think it a decidedly mysterious affair.
"1 may get myself into trouble, but I'm
found to solve the matter;" and straight
way walked into the store.
"These articles arc to be dilirjred to
"At Mo. 2S M Street."
'Could you give me a ride around
"O yes." The answer came promptly
but the grocer's eyes looked wenderingly at
the finely dressed gentleman.
It was a long ride aud by no means
plexsant one, tor it run throueii narrow
streets aud alleys, and ended in a low but
neat little coutt.
"Here you are, sir, at No. 23. Hal'oo
there! Mrs. Martin!"
The door of No. 23 swung open, and
woman pale aud poorly clad appeared.
"Here's a load of goods for you."
"For me ? There must be a mistake."
"ot a bit ot it. lake a parcel or two,
and P.'u m with the rest.
Pa Da Dorian, eager to see the whole
caught up a bundle and ran up stairs be
hind the wondering woman and grocer.
It was a poor little room, as i3at as wax,
half filled with freshly ironed clothes, and
its proprietre-s, a pale, meek-faced wo
