I Was looking over, the oilier day. a little
drawer in Cousin Carrie's writing-table, after
I a letter of Kate llamilt on's—Kato DuiAn that,
was— that she hint promised to show me. There
were all sorts of treasures in the drawer—let
ters tied up w' due ribbons, miniatures,
locks of hair, trinke and souvenirs innu

I COMIC across a ranciful little box, matte of
carved sandal wood,kthat oohed as though it

•MaY I open it, Carpi .'•••t,
' Theremas nothing in it but d-bunch of dried
buttercups, pressed on a Piece of slick paper.
• Dell" me! is this all? What do you keep
them in atter for, Carrie r • . ,
She took the box front my hand, end looked
at•them thoughtfully. •
'There is nothing lona drawer, Kate, that
I .prize• as much as
.these buttercups. I've
kept. them in that box for two years.'
' 'Qf course, then, there's something interest
ting ahem them if' amiy are so_preetotts,.and_
thereby hangs a tale—eh, Carrie?'
' Yes;' _ but more interesting to-me than to .
anybody else . , I fancy' .• . , - -,- - , . •
.!' Oh', no ! • Storks about witlatred flowers'
that are Wept as sonvinris, are delightful and
romantic, always, and I fool just like hearing
one now. Do tell me about them.'
I had Yo coax ever so long. but at last she
consented; ,so I put the things back into the
'rawer, and drew a seat close ,up to Carrie,
where I'dould watch her as she. talked, (for
she had a face one never tires looking at,) and
then.she told Jae this story, jusbas I tun going
to tell it to you.'..
' About'
,three years ago, Kate, mother's
healtir was so poor,- that Dr. Field said•she
must go to Cuba—nothing but a warmer cli

' One beautiful morning, Aunt Lydia asked
um to go over to Mrs. mWoodbury's for her, en
softie trilling errand' or other, as Peter was
-busy and-could not go;--so--pulg on my white
capo-bonnet, went. It wa. - Alf a mile, but
thought nothing of the walk. .In coming
'ionic, it was so warm that I decided to go
through the wood, which lay between Mrs,
Woodbury's and our house. I Sauntered
Mork till Ccarne ton brook that run through
thO wood; where it was narrowest, a board
had been laid across for a bridge—but it was
old, and when I was in the middle of if, the
treacherous 'thing broke. The water wasn't
deep, not above my knees;
but I didn't care
to wade it, so as I felt the bridge breaking, I
managed to jump ten large suede close by.
I stood balanaing myself on it,,trying to find
a fr e . vay to gm across, when I was startled by a
voice from the bushes near me, humining a
tone. mend then in a moment theard the ex
clamation :
.-Why-, bless me! .here's the divinity of the
place! What a charming attitude I'
~ Whoever you are, I called out, I wish you
,ivonld help me across here.' . ! ,
' It's a pity to spoil such a pret:pi eture,'
said the voice. 'Still I shall bomtost happy
to servo you. Wait a moment.'
'A piece of board soon made its appearance,
