How strange i f el (seemed: It was the same

With faltering tongue—for - before she had
proceeded far with her tale slit., felt- that every
word she uttered was doing her cause more harm
than good. Adelaide told her husband the whole

Adelaide's eyes fell beneath the stern, ktetrch

I%e tried to speak, but she could not. '
"Speak, woman—why did you marry me 1!
Why did you bring me a worn, and wasted, and

i while his cold, stern voice was benumbing every

I his neck — press her lips to his, and read in. his
, deep, earnest eyes, as she had SP often done al , the
assurance of his love But something ways
' restrained her—she knew that he meant her to
understand that the relations existing between
them were not what they had once been, and
I that knowledge (lid much to retard her recovery.
, One morning, about a week after she first left
I her room, Mr. Fletcher sent a servant to request
Iher presence in the library, her heart leaped. to
her throat. She had not seen her husband alone
I once during her illness, audit was fsome mintues
before the could gather strength to obey_ the slam
'quoin. When she did so, she found Mr. FlettS
er walking up and down the room, with his hands
clasped behind him. His face los very pale. and
there wens-lines about the month and . eyea that
spoke of internal suffering; yet he looked ealin
and resolute,. like one who had a fearful struggle
with his own heart, but had gained the victat.
He drew' forth an easy-chair for her as she e
tered—aid it was that-he did—for the
turned dark, and it seemed to her that she co d
never have reached it heAelf—but he did tot
speak for several minutes.
"It is quite time' that we understand fnlly"
he said at last—"the terms upon which we are
henceforth to live. Of course the future eanaot
he to us as the past haa been."
He paused, as if for a reply, but none came.
Adelaide neither spoke nor moved. . Her heat
was overflowing with tenderness toward her has=
band, awl for his evident suffering she grieved
eissi more than for 'her own. Why then aid she
not pour forth the whole story of her love and
sorrow; beg him : to have mercy upon her as well
as himself, and take her to his heart 'again? Be
cause she knew that she had deceived him once
intentionally—what right lhad shell( suppose that
I 1 he would believe her now?—and she felt that a
seeond-repulse.would kill her.
"I presume you would not desire a public sep
aratinn(--* divorce?" Mr. Fletcher asked the
question hesitatingly, and as if he dreaded the
answer. Adelaide started—she had never thought
of the thing, and she shook her head to pay so,
but her words were almost inaudible. •
'For the sake of our child," he continued, in
a voice that trembled in spite of evey effort to ren
der it firm—"for the sake of our child, and also
to avoid the gossip and scandal whieh'would other
wise be occasioned, I should wish that our outer
life—that which the world must sec and know—
might be the same as 'heretofore. I should wish
that whin we meet our friends in the social dr
cle, and even when we are in the presence of the
servants, our demeanor might -be such as not to
PredlMoll remark, and. that only in private might
. we be strangers." -
Strangers : had it come to that? After another
long pause, during which he evidently expected
Adelaide to speak, Mr. Fletcher went ee—
-1 "The terml have used sounds perhaps mine
oessaril harse-but with my clews of the mar
riage ' views that you have beard me ex
p/am a hundred times, I can adopt no other that
will egress my muting. Thee can be no
sanctity in marriage save where it is hallowed by
a mutual love. We cannot meet merely as
friends—we must be more or nothing. It is bet.
ter therefore that there should be no intercourse
between• us save in the presence of_ others
Still Adelaide replied not.,
"I would like, Mrs. Fletcher tit have you deal
frankly with me. It is now very necessary that
we should understand - each other fully." •
Adelaide grasped for breath, snd her lips
moved for a minute or two before any sound is
sued from them—
"It shall be AS you my."
Her husband bowed. his head. En his heart
of hearts be hadfor a different answer.—
It was not a strong he t e c t o l pe, and ho was hardly cm
scions_ that he cherished it, hut it was just
enough to make him fool dimppointed that she
yielded without u murmur I.> his 'wishes, and ha

He ceased, and fur a halt' hour they at in si
lence, seareelymnseious of the lapse of time. At
length Adelaide felt that she. could endure it no
longer, and she rose feebly from her chair--
. "Have you any thing further to at to me,
Mr. Fletcher;"" • •
. " "Nothing more," was the auswei.. A cold
bow was exchanged between them, and thus the
husband and. wife parted
"It in all over—oh, my i;o1.1.. why bs,t thou
forsaken me ?" cried Adelaide, as she reached
her own chamber and fell almost fainting upon
the bed "Kate, Kate, you warned and coun
seled me, but I would 'not heed lon In my
lieadetrcmg folly I would not listen to your en
treaties, and now it too late, and you are not

:Then. gradually. as day after day her liesiutel

polite, the conviction forced itself upon her wind
that be had lest all hwe' for her—that their en
stmngement had ceased to be a matter of the
l ea st concern to him. And so she avoided him
more studiously than ever. She held - herself
still more coldly aloof, thinking that he loathed
her very presence. Her home iras desolate! In
the. long evenings, - after little Katy we , fast
asleep., it • was such torture to sit alone in her
room ; -to hear her husband's step in the library;
to.know that he wasaio near her in loneliness and
bitterness, of spirit, and yet feel that '.hey were.
as - effectually separated tt.`l if the waters of an
ocean rolled between/ them.
So she fled from the solitude and dreariness of
her own chamber; and mingled more freely than
before in the circles of gayetyand fashion. She
tried to forget her misery , by plunging into a
whirlpool of excitement. There, too, she WO ,
flimsily met
,her husband.; and sometimes 'he
could steal away into some quiet corner, and gaze
upon him unobserved—with . none to mark the
starting tears

that often, in the darkness and silence of night,
she had stolen to the door of his room , listening
intently if happily she might catch the faintest
echo of a sigh ; and then, shivering and tremb

moan:until the morning He did not know that
Once she had found the door ajar, and knowing
by his quiet and regular breathing that he was
asleep, had. glided softly into the room, and
watched him through her blinding tears. He
did not know that she had bent 'over him until

ried away by, an irresistible impulse ,
she had
stooped until her ips touched his, and that then,
frightened and abashed, she had lown away-like
a startled bird He dreamed. of her that night.
I.He tffought that she was. in his Arms, showering
soft kisses upon his lips and brow. Alt ! had he
but known that "it was not all a dream !"
There was now but one connecting , link be
tween them, and:that was their child. Her they
both worshipped; The happiest moments Mr.
,ffetcher knew were tame in which he sent. for
little Katy, and snatching her up in his arms bore
her to • the library. sad kept her- for 'hours to
gether. listening to her artless prattling.-and re
ceiving and returning her fond caresses.'
One, day,. while he was playing With her, idle
burst into tears for some trilling cause, and her
father reproved her, telling her it *as "naughty

•4.:Sto, not naughty, =mina Cr.y Mamas not

very decidedly.

asked Mr. Flot er, while his heart heat quickly.
"Katy' not ow. Mamma kiss. Katy, and
mamma cry , very had !" she replied, clasp

Mr, Fletcher clasped the little tell-talc to his
fleart,,but he could . raw nothing more front her.
Perhaps if she hid looked her father's
face, site might have thought "papa, cried," too.
The little fairy was the only connecting link
between theta, and at length that was also broken.
