What the world wants to-day is mtre

into the alleys, down into the Cellar
'Ways, up into the dilapidated garrets,
take it into the ,prieons and poorhouses;
take it on all the ships; carry it beside
all the sick beds, There can be uo place
on all the earth where its light might ,
not fall and do good. Don't be afraid
of having too much of it. Take not a
vildful---not a cupful, not it decanterful, r
but a soolful. It is good for the spleen,]
for liver complaint, for neuralgia, and
for rheumatism; it is good for falling,

ineffaceably that sleeping face was

just becoming aware that be was taking
an enormous liberty, when she opened
a pair lot half afraid blue eyes, and he
felt that the time in which fie had gazed
was long enough to have given him
something like familiar acquaintance.
'Can you tell me,' he said, in his most

Aud presently they. Were deep in a
discussion of favorite ideas and theories,

wise or foolish, in her loneliness, for

Happiness made her _more of a child

all that Mr. - Vincent Maurice -heard of
her for the next two year was a notice
in solne newspaper that Mrs. Francis
Rivera and Miss Kate Rivera had been
presented to the Queen by the Ameri
can Minister, and that the beauty and
exquisite dress of the younger lady had
created a sensation at the Drawing
Doubtless Mr. Maurice would have
been quite pleased with Kate could ho
have seen her at that time. The sorrow
of an almost broken heart, • the loneli
ness following the lost love, the regret
of not pleasing, the , despair of being
able to do so, every thought and word
of all which she kept to herself, had
taken away the overflowing spirits
which bad been so oftensive, and she
had unconsciously contracted something
of themes() gentle Ways of those about
her,' growing, indeed,. so listless and'
apathetic that at last her cousin Francis
lightly reproached her indolent want of
sympathywith evesything—she who had
sympathized with - the very flies upon
the pane. But reproach, good-natured
as it was, brought snob a flood of tears,
and the tears such a nervous reaction,
that a physician was summoned, who
ordered her to herbed; and once there
she did not leave- it for many weeks.
When at last she came out into the open
air again that fire bad utterly burned
out, and its ashes were cast to the
winds. It seemed to be a new world
about her, and she teak as vivid an in
terest in it as it she was herself new
born to it.
Itwas a new world—the world of art;
for they were in France, and that was
followed by Rome and Naples, by
Venice and Dresden and Munich, by
some stay in Paris. by a London season.
If at the end of.it all the child of as

brilliantly artificial woman of the saloon
it was because of the gentle wisdom of
her cousins, who knew
stimulate and where to repress, until
the graciously . developed brain' and
soul were evident perhaps a trifle soon

for Mr. Vincent Maurice need not have
troubled himself with any fear that, '
when the bud was already so lovely, the
tall blossom would be less perfect, if he
had but given it time to bloom, instead
o f tearing it rudely open.
He was net a very happy man in
those daya; he remembered with in
creasing bitterness the brief 'happiness
of other days.. He longed now with all
his heart to see Kate Rivera ones again,
that all would then soon and easily be
Hie longing was answered; he saw
her again. It was in the court of the
Grand Union at Saratoga, one evening
when the electric light was burning,
and the fountain blaihed in the hues of
all the precious stones, and the trees
waved their boughs through vast lights
and shadows, lunder _ which .the people
moved fantastically 'while the band
breathed its music. A group stepped
out'from among the othels, and went in
from the night air. He - followed, and
saw them again to the ball-room. Count ' ,
Beonrepaire— he had seen hint before
a tall, heroic-looking man, attached to
the French legation, or in Washington,
rather, on a special mission. Perhaps

His Kate. • A woman whose jemmied
shape wore its lace and silken rainment

with its tinting of rose and ivory. with
its nut-brown hair_in Raffaelle locks
about the snowy brow, with its great
innocent blue eyes half contradicted by
the archness of the smile running over
in dimples, was the face of his dreams,
of his ideal, of Sate Rivera as be had
never _dared hope to see her.
He sprang - forward; but they bad
paused only a moment, and then Count
Beaurepsire had bent befOre her 'with a
questioning air, and they were gli ding'
down the room 'together in a waits that
made Mr. Vincent Maurice gnash his
teeth. She was taken back to' her cous

her the swan-down sirup that Mr. Riv

piszza, and she passed within a yard of
him, without seeing him. without
dreaming of theeageg, pidlid face, with

half-outstretched hand, as unconcerned,

passing on into the moonlight, .in the
snowy flutter of her drapery and the
soft white down 'of her mantle, a vision
of maidenly grace almost too lovely to

he saw her sitting on her bursa like Di

over her one monient too long as he lift
ed her from the saddle. while the grooms
held the horses; saw the quick color

her, to stir the ashes, to wake , a spark
from the ashes; but the next morning
the party had gone.
His stepmother wrote him . a month
further on: 'Such fine doings as there are
at the old manor-house here! Kate Hilt-
ers has returned with a gay company to
bid good-bye, and she has been giving

why didn't you follow up your fancy
that summer? ' Anything more' exquisit
than she in beauty and hr manner I
have failed to see. She has the air of a
princess just before her- coronation.
And so she is. For they • have found

He did not understand tie letter.
Why was his mother 'writing to bbn
about the Chateau Beaurepaire. That
was the scattering way in which she
always ran on. And what did he care
for the revenue of coal lands? It was
not money he wanted; no one could say
that. All he gathered from the letter
was that Hate was going to France
again. If she , did he would follow her.
