As she ended this little aphorism, she
noticed a newspaper lying upon the
floOr, and lifting - it, ran her eye over the
advertisements. The one that claimed
her attention was this :—"Wanted,

In the early twilight she 'glided out
and posted her letter.: The address was
X-- , Ohio—full Ctvo flays' journey
from her present-110nm . , and while await
ing an answer she had ample time to get
over her Christmas annoyance and re
pent .d'" her hasty action. But. Grace
did not_repent. IL was a deeper feeling
than passing anger which prompted her,
and the reply found her still tiVi her
pm pose.
Wlth 1.01 R pleasant SCCIIO ill her
amit's mot Mug room when Gracie
aimounced lice intention. riot that her
relatives really earod 7 indoed, she felt
that. Viva, at, least, 0 as heartily rejoiced
at the prospect of getting her out of the
way—hut—the looks uC the thing. Even
Mrs. Glumly sometimes becomes the
, gnai Wan of a penniless orphan. But
Gl'ice cut her amt's scolding and Viva's
sneers as short as possible ; and having
mitten a short letter to Kane Ventrior—
uerelir telling hint that she had gone to
seek her fui tune, and bidding him, trust
her and await fuller explanation—she
stained upon her j , urney-as 'friendless,
37t as dete:rminod a girl as ever ventured
upon a similar errand.
71 was night when she arrived at her
destination, and !Ile, could only foitri at
vagite, general idea that fife house was a
pretty villa on the outskirts of the town,
and that her employer—who gave her a
kind reception—was a gentleman. In
lite dining romn, where tea had been
waiting for her,,Ler observations
were more decided. P.,..he fancied the
reason for the peculiar phraseology of
the advertisement as she ate—o}' ittleast
tried—froma soiled table cloth,
sticky dishes, and forks odorously sug
gestive of the last meal.
"I can improve this, anyhow," she
thought, and, taking her cue, she ap
pearetlin the kitchen , bright and early
the nexl, morning, starting the Hibernian
incumbent by inquiring the
,way to the
linen closet.
"An' it is a elesii"tableeloth yu're

"Yes, sod napkins. Ten me where I

with dignity, she said: "I have come

And 1 want the table linen at
This had the desired effect. • The
napery was forthcoming, and Graoie
proceeded to spread it neatly Upon the
round table. Then, while the girl
looked on astonished, she subjected
such portion of the glass and china as
might 'be Deeded 'to a sort of Turkish
bath. , That• is, she washed them briskly
through a pan of hot soapsuds, dipped
them quickly into another of pure,
scalding• water, and ended by - rubbing
thorn vigorously with a clean crash
towel. Next, by alb aid of 'the white of
un egg thoroughly mixed •wiith tho
ground Arabian berry, she made coffee,
the cdlor and transparency amber, and
ended preparations by tossing together
an omelette light as yellow form crest.

spoke a sympathetic sigh for , all home
less young creatures breathed from the
old gentleman's lips.-
Grace was touched, and, almost before
she was aware of it," she had„.told tho
whole story of her life—and of her moth
er'ii early death ; of her father's patient' '
toil as a here a missionary ; of the grudg- •
log support given her after he was gone ;
and after a word or tive of questioning
encouragement,. her resolutions-of inde
pendence, her connection 'with 'Kane
Veutnor, and her hopes for the futtire.
The latter part of the story seemed to
possess peculiar interest to the ofdpan.
" What is his piofession—this youth

" A lawyer, sir,

"Ah I hut isn't that rather--.exense

Gracie flushed out in a - littlo burst, of

eyes . twinkling.
Ci "'How can you ssy so when., you are

nantly. "Besides, Mr. Ventuor is. no

patience, but he ii detlrmined to be
nothing less than a high-miuded Mach
Winer of the law, who will stoop to no
low measures on' trickery, and whose
glory it will he to right the wrongs of
the ,oppressed. Such is his ambition."
Mr. Brooke sinned at her significant

Ire won tothe door, paused, hesitated,
then came back to the head of the table
where Gracie was still sitting.
"My dear," 4 ho said, just touching the
sunny ripples above her brow, " when I
remarked Vint your innocent disguise
was unnecessary, - 1 alluded to the fact
that 1 am an old man—old enough to be
your grandfather, I dare say—and more
over, one whose yontlkul dreams are all
buried deep in the sepulchre of the past.
lint, upon second thought, I reniciaiber
that we live in a busy, mischief-making
little world, ono that, in all these six
thou Sand years of its existence, has not
learned the siralilo hmson of minding its
own blisinesk—and therefore, if it would
not be unpleasant to you, perhaps it
wonld be as well for you. to call me uncle
while you are here. That ,would effec
tually silence all gossiping tongues, and
be doing a lonely old man a aroatTivon"
Gracie _was deeply touched by his
delicate kindness. She could only reply
by catching the withered hand and
bedewing jt, with grateful tears.
Thus their compact was made. To
snch neighbors and visitors as came to
the house, she was henceforward intro
duced as "141 y niece, who has come
on from the East to keep house for me."
But Gracie soon found that it was not
merely nominal ladoption. Presents,'
beautiful and costly, began to flow in
upon her ; books, music and flowers
leading to, more, substantial things.
Thorn was no lack now of 'soft gloves
and dainty laces, and the mortifying
memory of the coarse green malachites
was over-shadowed by the pure gleam of
lustrous pearls. •
In return for this wonderful, kind
ness, Gracia rendered to her benefaCtor
the care and devotion of a daugher. No
task was too lard for her if it could add
to the comfort or•adornnient of his home.
Yet, owing to hei• excellent. manage-,

but little neunal labor. Bridget, whose.,
chief fault was ignorance, gradually
came to understand the heanty.and
vantage of doing things well at first, and
as the family was' so small, she was.,
abundantly capita° of doing all that was
As the soft spring clays Came on,
Gracie had morn and 1130113 leisure, and
almost any morning she might have
been 80011 out in the garden among her
bulbs and seeds,, working with the zeal
and taste of an accomplished florist.
;Very happy days these wore to thu
orphan girl. But ono thing was. needed
to make her• enjoyment complote,'Kane

his constancy WAS as firm .as ever, and'
- though,hor thoughts often turned east

she ;exclaimed;' herielf ;
but nob the -iCsS'for . this did she' her
uncle's bidding. Even 'as a punishinnat
for man's prestemption'. will, a , woman
sometimes make herself temptingly
beautiful. ,
The soft shadows, of , the summer eve
were falling tenderly over the , fragrant
gardens,. and Quiet streets, when she
carne' dOwn stairs, wearing atrailing,
robe, of lustrous gray tissue, elaborately
ruffled; with a loani-like frill of costly
lace circling her throat and wrists, and
with warm, spicy carnations clustering
'among het curls and upon her Bosom.
'Tho gentleman had arrived ; she could
hear the low hum of conversation ; but
it was growing so dusk within the par
lor that she failed to 'recognize the cue
who so„eagerly rose upon .her Mitrauce.
It was only when the words, `f Gracie,
my "darling, my own," fell upon her
ears, and toe strong arms of lidne Vent
nor held her in a cloSe'ernbrdee, that she f
realized the loving little plot which had
been laid for her benefit, and that the
glad, bright tears of gratitude burst
forth unchecked.
Again it is Christmas, aud again Gracie,
io in hor chambor ; but thorn aro smiles
upon her face 'instead of tears h and a
bevy of merry companions aro wreathing
, •
her head with orange flowers.
" auswOPOJl Gracio,
DoWu stairs, whore tho Christmas
holly is mingled with white bridal,
blossoms, the guests are beginning to
assemble, and iu ono short hour she will
have given to another all that love can
give—herself. Presently • there is a
knock upon the bikamber door, and the
busy maidens are interrupted by the
entrance of Mr. Brooke.
" One moment, Gracie," he says,
pausing just within the threshold.
" Some relatives of mine—some you have
never heard of=have seen it fit to pay
me a visit. I.have explained to them
that they have droPped in upon a wed- .
ding, and must content themselves with
the general • entertainment; , but I
thought it better to tell you, that you
might not be disconcerted by the ptes-
once of . strangers."
Gracie wondered who the visitors
could 'be, and °von fretted a little on
their inopportune coming. But when
she went do4n into the .parlor and took
her place before the'diinister, she forgot
thein entirely.
It was not till the ceremony was I , vor,
.and the company thronged up with con
gratulations; that she behold the, hard
gray eyes of Aunt Charlotte and scorn
fully, beautiful ones- of Viva fixed upon
her in bitterest hate.
Like a flash, she understood it all—
that this Mr. Ralph Brooke, 'whose house
keeper she bad become, was the identi
cal 0 Uncle Ralph" of her relatives.
"groat expectations :" and dreading.
she scarcely knew not what from their
angry surprise, she instinotively drove_
closer, to her newly inane husband. •
But Mr. Ventnor, though equally
astonished, had no such fear. In fact,
he 'rather enjoyed the situation, and by
a well bred cage of manner carried the
affair through without open eselandre.
Before - the company broke up, Mr.
Brooke tdpk occasion, in the presence of
some of. his best friends as witnesses, to
bestow upon the bride a deed of gift,
conferring several valuable city lots, to
gether with the pretty vilki 14arie
wherein he reserved, as he said, only a
seat by the chimney corner.
"Spiteful littlo minx 1" said Viim
" An artful, designing girl !'' echoed
her brother, as bitterly refusing the
offered hospitality, they shook, the dust
from their feiit and drove to a hotel.
But Gracie, happy in hoe best gifts—
two loving hearts—raved little for their
malice, rind -could afford to forget the
day that she stood sObbing-over a hand;
ful of sham (Mary.

into . the other room. The doctor knew

" Good morning,, Miss Estello," said
Dr. John,_ approaching the, sofa, whore
the beauty reclined. "Your
mother tells me you are ill."
Miss Estelle, with an almost impatient
gesture, brushed bank the floating hair
from her temples—carelessly, and really
unintentionally, it would seem, baring
. by the motion ono of the most beautiful
arms that sculpture ever raved about- -
and replied :
" Your manner scorns to say, 'Miss
Estelle, You are illodys ill. Why don't
you behave yourself?' Oh, how happy
1 should be, Dr. John, if you would once
in your life be 'rind . to ine.- I do really
think something is the Matter with my
heart. What if I should die ?"
No 'picture of Watteau's could ever
have been more witching, more charm

Evor3 , accessory oftoilet had been
brought to boar uyon the citadel of his
heart ; and to a handsome woman no
dress is so becoming as the negligee of

embroidery, slippered feet and graceful
postures. Then the vases filled with
'flowers, the mirrors and jewels, and per

Heigh° ! many a strong man has bowed
to such a shripe—mado a fool of himself,
for life—when in the glare and glitter of
the drawing room no such nonsense
\mild have been thought of.
Dr. John acknowledged the beauty of
this picture. It was dainty, piquant,
dangerous. It has' been dined up for
bin, on several plakvious occasions, but
never so much to iris mind as now. The
beauty's manner was earnest, and almost
su s pplicating. What man' could fail y
be appreciative under such circumstan
ces Remember, too, that Dr. John
was longing to be loved—had that very
,almost prayed that heaven
would Send him a little bundle of com
fort in shape of a good wife, and it will
mit be strange that, notwithstanding the
efforts previously made to enthrall him,
hp should think only of the present love
" What are you reading, Miss Estelle?"
said Dr. John, after a moment of appro
ciativo scrutiny. "Wilson's Essays,
oh ?" and the doctor'S face showed all
the surfiiiso and pleasure felt by its
owners. " And,upon- my word, if hero
isn't EmerSou ! That is healthy food--_._
rather heavy, though, - I should think,
for a sick girl !"
Miss Estelle drew a long breath ! For
the first time in the twelvo months Of
trial had slip received one singlo,.wqrd
of compliment or commendation from
the man whom her mother had deter
mined she should marry.
" And, as true as I lhe, another b'ook

Ono little hand tucked the volume
further under the pillow, while the

jeweled 'fingers lying on his, the fair

wonld have doomed him to misery all
the days of his life wore almost spoken.

enough lifted the frill of the.pillow, and
disclosed both title and author. Ono of
the most mischievous and recklessly
written books ever Translated into the
English language:
For a moment the doctor sat' silent
with horror and astonishment. Not so
much that the young woman hefoyCHhim
had developed a taste for such literature
hut that she could so Unblushingly lie to
"1" do not think," said he at last;
" that you' need any medbeine 1 s,o you

Without another ,word or look she .hur
