• ' Via ihe . had not died, then and there, holding

•James - Grayling, a crafty, patient man, bided
-his time. ," It came surely atfla.st, when the ten
- der green of . the bill-sides shriveled and grew
• brown under the starry, silent frost of the bitter
December nights, and the keen, wind rushed
.. with thunderous swell through the lonely pine
: .forestifin those wild solituds.
"Daughter,itiathe dearest wish of my heart"-
said farmer' Atterly, solemnly, as he sat with
' - Beiiiiie pi the old silent moth. "I'm gettin' on
, -'in tbe years; and if I could but ace you married
„.,to son o good and true mark before I am taken
-7-away, I should rest,easier in my grave. James
.: Grayling has been almost! a son to me these
months of ;trial and trouble. He is - coming for
.:, his final answer to night. Let it be yes!"
• Beasie an idere I. That year of sick, wistful.
•'grierland changed her .into a pale, fragile girl,
Kith large, frightened eyes, ever roving from
cide to. side,' as , if vainly seeking •something
which never came. • : -,
"-Wait, father;" she murmured, ei,gcrly, as if
pleading. for sweet, life, itself; "fait, a little .
longer-7—only a little longer!' •
"I have waited, Bessie. It is a year and
over since Harry Ives hassent you either word
or message. • He may b€ 4. dead—better dead
than a. scoundrel!—but ",nines Grayling` has
.beenas true as steel to me All this time. He
' Bessie ; and When once married,
you'll learn to love him': Shall wo say this day
month for your Wedding, daughter - 1' " •
That night Besiie laid her cold hand in James
Grayling's eager palm. and said "yes," dream
ily, to whatever he proposed. What had life
left for her? As well James Grayling's wife as
anything else, since God willed that she should
live anesuffer on, and ,the dreary path of years
lay spread out before her, listless feet!
The old smoke stained walls were wreathed
with feathery garlands of cedar and pine, with
the scarlet berries of the mountain ash glowing
here and there ; the great fire roared up the
chimney with festive sound ; and all the neigh
hors were gathered around farmer Atterly's
hearthstone; for pretty Bessie was to be married
"She don't look as a bride ought to, some
how," whispered Mrs. Deacon Jennings, to her
companion, Mahala Bird. "She seems to me
jest like one o! them white snow wreaths down
in the hollow yonder."
" May be it's that white dress," said Mahala
" but she does look like n corpse. - Land o'
Goshen ! what be I sayin'l It ain't gook luck
to talk about corpses on a. wcddin' night."
For the pretty bridesmaids had just led Bessie

niums in her hair, and not avestige of color itt,
her cheeks. •

" There ! don't she look sweet ?" said Susy .
Jennings. " Is it tine to go into the parlor yet!"
" Massy, no, child," said Mrs. Jennings, "not
for an hour. Why, Jim Grayling hasn't come
So Bessie sat down in the midst of the assem
bled anaidens and matrons, and played with the
white flowers in her bouquet, thinking, who
knows what? Perhaps at lonely grave under
the cruel Southern starsperhaps the fliir face
of the woman Who had wiled her lover's heart
Somebody - spoke to her; she looked up, and
all of a sudden her frightened eyes traced a figure
beyond the open door opposite to which she sat
--a figure - hurriedly pressing through the crowd.
" Where is she?
.I will see Bessie, wedding
or no wedding ! Who has a better right than I?"
The nest moment the pale, white robed
bride lay like a fair, still statute, in Henry
" Stand off, ',say !" he cried fiercelY, " , Let
no one come between me and the woman I love.
I have earned her to be my wife—earned her
by the long 'Months of pain and sufferiUg—
earned her by the wounds received on the battle
field of the country she loved !' Do yen say!;be
is to be married to James Grayling 1 44.Whathas
James Grayling done with the letters I sent to
his care—with all the messages I entrusted to
him 1 She had better be in her -grave than
married to James Grayling. Mr. Atterly, you
are a just and good man judge between - me and
the treacherous fox I fancied was my friend."
" Harry, Ilitrry !" fhltered the old man, " I
never - dreamed o' this. Tell me about it, my
boy, for my old head swims." •
And Henry Ives, still holding Bessie to his
heart, revealed the story of his own truth and
James Grayling's duplicity. When he had
finished the impassioned recital; Moses Atterly
clasped 'the brown, strong hand, between his
own horny palms, and said solemnly :
" My boy. I ask'yOur pardon for every doubt
that ever crossed my mind, And I thank the
merciful Providence that has spared Bessie
from being Jint Grayling's wife. We are cal
enlatin' to have a weddin' 'here t4-night, and it
isn't too late yet, if Hurry has no objection to
beiu' married in his soldier clothes !"
" Father i" interrupted Bessie, rosy as asshole
bouquet of - carnations blended into one; but
Harry took her hands into his, whispering,
! I shall not -feel secure until 1 can
call you wife," and remonstrance died away
upon her lips '
"Are you all ready, hider - Wilkins ?" said
Moses, "'cause I believe the. young couple is."
Ah ! she looked like a bride now, with the
hazel light burning in soft fires under her long
curled lashes, and the carmine dyes coming and
Going upon her cheek,- like a proud aid blush,
The ceremony was scarcely oier, before the
silver chimes of sleigh bells sounded at the door,
and Grayling's voice was heard exclaiming:
" I'mlfraid Ijun a-little late: but the horse
sprainedikis leg, and I had to change him at
',Squire Warrenten's. However—" '
" Yes, Jim Grayling. you are a little lite,"
said Moses Atterly, taking a prodigious pinch of
snuff, "for my darter's married already."
" Married !" ejaculated Grayling, us if uncer
tain whether his intended father-in-law was not'
a fit candidate for a lunatic asylum. '
" Yes—to Harry Ives !"
As James Grayling's bewildered eye caught
sight, in the brilliantly lighted rooms beyond.
of the young soldier, bending his tall head to
listen to some whispered'word., from Bessie, he
turned a dull, dead yellow, and a chill dew broke
out around his mouth.
"IVhat &ICS this mean ?" he asked.
"It means, Jim Grayling, that you are a
scoundrel !" said the old man, with sudden fire
flashing in his eyes. " There's the open door
—leave this house before Harry Ives sets eyes
on you, for he's a spirited lad, and mischief
might cotne:of it' And hark ye—never let me
see your villainous face again!"
Silently, and like a wounded snake, James
Grayling crept out into the chill darkness of
the tempestuous-night, a detected. disappointed
man. ; And so effectually did he take Moses At
terly's advice, that the little village iii the hol
low knew his name and presence lv more.
And Bessie! Ives, the happiest little wife in
the world, sings softly over heeweik, Counting
the days until " when' this crued , war is over,"
she shall welcome her soldier-leishand, back to
the grand pld pine forests of Maine once more.
