DISENCHANTED, NARY REED CROWELL: “BROKEN your engag Madge Amory echoed ;the : ; words with such genuine surprise that Edith smiled amusedly—fair,-stately Edith Grosysnor, with her lily face lighted with such grand black eyes, soft, as velvet. - "Broken my engagement, Madge ; and I can assure. you Dr. Belmont is pst as well satisfied as am." • Madge flung a. navy blues veliet band impatiently on the dreising case, her ehteks flushed. her blue ey4 looking un uterahle reproach and vexation.

It was just dusk when the coach rolled up to the door- of Edith's hotne,., where lights brightly gleamed in the drawing room window seemed to -flake a welcome fiti: her. ' "I .know what it means," she: said; turning her eyes to Dr. Behnont's face.— "I can seethrongh the window-410race is there—" , She, ftitrned the latch-key softly, motioning Leslie to follow her; and side by side they crossed ; the velvet- - carpeted hall toilie parlori,Where sounds of voices suddenly name to their ears— Mr. Aylmer's first. "I tell you.there is not. the Slightest use of prating to me about the looks 'of it, Mr. Ashley. You are the lawyer and drew up Miss Grosvenor's will, and you know she left evetything, most: unquali fiedly,,to nie. I choose - to take posseis. ion at once—and that's the end of` it." Edith's fingers suddenly tightened on Belmont's wrist—a touch that terri fied hiin through and through. "But such - haste is- indecent, *tr. Ayl mer—outrageously indecent. Without a doubt you are ,owner of this . mansion and all it contains, and the remainder of Miss Grosvenor's estate—but - in the name of decency and humanity, for the sake of the lady yon loved—" Aylmer's laugh: interrupted `the earnest appeal of the old family lawyer. "Come ! now; Ashley, that's rich ! An old fellow like, you prating Of love. Do you suppose for a moment I earpd for Edith ? . No, sir . ! It was her money— and I've got it,. safe Wand soundoVithout any encumbrance. Ashley, transfer the bonds and stocks to my name, and giVe me whatever loose cash there is in the bank.

Then, with a little sudden moac she dropped her hold of • .Leslie's hand "Dr. Belmont ! how you must pity and despise_ me !" Her complaint was! hardly off her lips when he bad caught her hands in his. "Edith . It is only love—great, undy ill; love I feel ! Can you j let all the miserable past three months fiass—k and let me begin where I left off that September night ? Edith, tell me that you love me I" \ ' One second of pride battling with the true love that lia,d only been sleeping and Edith lifted her, lips, to his... • . "LesliE! oh; thank God for this!

"1 am too sorry to interfereln yoUr delightful little plani, Mr. Aylmer, but, really, lam obliged to! Ur. Ashley dear old friend—tell me , how 'glad yott'areit was all ~a hideous mistake.: about my be ing killed." Then, turning to ;Aylmer again, who stood like a petrified; corpse, she bestowed One of her Mostbewitching smiles on him. "I mean a fortunate mis take. Leslie, wilLyou ring for Jonas to show.

' And' with a' sweeping bow,. the very quintessence of mockingly elaborate courtesy, she dismissed the, speechless, crestfallen man from bet house, from her` life forever. - "Well, my boy," said a NeW - York fath. ‘ er to his eight-year-old son, the, other night, "what have 'you done to-day that !my be set down as a good deed ?'

E WILL have it out, now, if, you TV pleas, madam I" said Mark Ark ,wright• to his wife, .Augusta. - And they haVe it out with a;ven gence. Both were high tempered; nei ther had learned self-control ; and before this scene between.them was ended, both had spoken words -suchas no ,two, p,eople who love eadli other should ever speak•=-- If two indiffe.rint persons quarreled, it doee not amount. to much generally ; but when cWo who love each other in dulge in theidangerous pastime,,it is fre. : quently fatal to happiness. They had'been married but a year, and the sweet glamour of romance had hard ly worn off. I- This, was the tirst dissagree ment and it began in a secret. Perhaps Mr. Arkwright bad ample ,cause to be angry with his wife. lam siire that ev ery man will. think so, though a woman's judgment might be different. • On the ,afternoon of the quarrel he had asked his Wife to drive with him,and she had declined on that plea--the,head ache. He had petted her,. and kissed her hot forehead, - .aid' smoothed her soft blonde hair ' and established:her on the longue in her room, with a pillow under her head and a shawl over her feet, be : lure he went out for his ; afternoon drive. Two. hours later, he °had decasio,n to cross Hydei Park, and there, walking' slowly down one of the must ..weluded paths, he so* a purple velvet skirt, be side a blackicoat. Augustia had a poi.- ple,velvet skirt and lookel like an' angel, her husband had ft.( ottently told 'her, all unmindful ;of the historical fact that' angels universally wear white, and are supposed to, be above the weakness of purple velvet skirts, The airs and linanners of the man were decidedly fOreign ; he was handsone,and had an easy : appearance' generally—in deed, he seemed to be constantly looking over his shoulder. - Arkwright liaised in the shadow of a cluirip of trees, and watched the pair. I suppose "wl,itohed" is the proper word, though Arkwrignt prided himself on be ing an extremely honorable Alan; and would doubtless have knoCke,d anybody down who pad insinuated anything to the contrary. There was ho mistaking the grace of the lady, the .Wave of her golden hair, the tutu of her snowy neckl---yes, the very wreath of purlile panises on her hat —all were Angustia's ; and in a mo; meta moreter husband heard her , voice. "Dear Aiithur," she was saying, "every moment for you here is fr.tught with peril. Loorie no time in getting. out of London." j• "Sukdarling," returned the man, "no thing save 10 love for you. has brought me here ; and it is bard that I cannot have just this little comfort." . - They. moved away down the walk, and Arkwright heard no* more.' 'But he had heard quiteenough. He was in a white heat of passion. He dated not folio* them•and trust. himself to speak., There was murder, in - his heart. He must wait alittle till his temper cooled. He went to , n stable - Aired a fast horse, and rode him till the animal -was ready to drop.— Then he vient home and accused his wif& o matter in what words—they were harsh and bitter enough, heave'n knows, and the Vile epithets he applied ta lier at the outset roused all the haughty pride and resistance to arms. • She heard him through..i • She attempt ed no defense ; she made no denials;' but , when he Paused from sheer want of breath, she' buried the hour in which 'she bid married Then she left *the room. , 1 • - • • - He had all night to subdue himself; and if she Jhad come to him in the morn-. lug with' filly reasonable explanatiOn, he would have listened to her.''But she did not come.- 1 • • • • '• • • : • After a ' 1 'while be sought her : in her room ; bpt she was gone.

For; three years' 'he was a wanderer seeking always ;his wife and her sedu cer, and finding them never. , At last he - quitted wandering, and Went .home.- He was a - very wealthy . man how. Lands that he had owned , ' had increased prodigiouilv is value, and there was no need of his applying himself to business. 'He built .a mansion, and lived alone 'in it With hi 3 jbooks and thoughts for com-, pang.

Msived,by some. impulse which he could not have explain ed, he stopped' his horse, and accosted -. She sobbed out her-little story with all e . child's ingenuousness. - Her mamma - had-gone somewuere to carry .work, and saii*Spot had gone -to walk by them- selves, and they..had walked, 0h,,50 far ! and now they , - were, lost.. • Her name was Lily, and the kitten's - name Witt Spotty and that was.. all she could tell to prove her identity. Sur prised at himself for doing . so, Ark wright took herin to the carriage—kitten and. all—and carried . her to his o*.n Bone.- He advertised her, and for the first 'two or three daytimade some effort to discover her relatives. Afterthat he did not want to discover them. Into his colkclosed heart.Lify had crept, and made her home there: and the desolate, cynical man found himeelf loving her as a little be ,fore he - had not' dreamed of loving any th:ng again. After the lapse of a fort- ' night theidea, of Lily leaving,' him be-:, came absolutely, unbearable. He- got so nervous that' he started at every- pund of the bell—fearful that some one was coming to' Claim her. She and the kitten had Wall their own way in: Ark wright = House. They strayed in the library, and upset thebooks and:papers to their mutual Satasfaction. Lily sat on' Arkwright's knee a great deal of the time- amnstng herself with braiding and curling his -hair into the most gro tesque shapes-; and 'Spot, with feline audacity mcunted on his shoulder and nibbled - the top of his pen, or thrust her inquisitive little nose into his face 'all un rebuked. But 'one day, just as Ark wright was beginning •to feel •sure of the child, lady came for her. This, lady was tall mid slight, and woke black, and bad her face covered with a thick vail. Something in her low, Eveet voice - stirred . the innermost depths of Mark Arkwright's natnre, but a fierce pang pilot through him when he saw with what earnestOess Lily flew toward her. "Mamma r darling mamma 1" she cri ed, covering her with kiises. "I 80 dad on turn 1 Now•oo and I, and epots and papa are all togedder 1" • Arkwright reddened.He had been weak.enough to teach this child to call_ him . papa. He Wondered - : what the lady thought. of his presumption ; but she -. seemed unwilling . to linger. She thank ed him for the care he bad given Lily— offered to pay.him for his trouble from a very slender-lpoking purse ; and, being indignantly refused, she turned to -go.— Lily was in herarms.' ,Arkwright; took a step toward them, and Lily threw her arms around his neck, driwing him up close, and face to , face with the lady.-- Through the thick folds of her veil their eyes met. He started back, pale and trembling. • "Augusta !" he faltered, in a choked voice. ',lir. Ark wright - - She was the calmer of the two. A wo man al9ays is in eases ,of emergency.— All the old love, fierce and ungovernable, rose np-within him. . ."This child l- Whose is it'?" he ask .ed. "Mine and yours," she answered quiet lys.'
