She was a very beautiful girl. I think I never saw such a lovely creaature in my life, though 1 know thai .we are vry apt to be misled by our imaginations, and "that the eye makes lis own beauty But no one could have thought her anything but pretty, standing by the garden gate with her apron full of wild flowers, and her curls, lifted by the wind, dancing around her forehead like a swarm of golden bees. '.'My daughter, Rose," said her father, and >he put her little white hand iuto mine as a child might have done, just as simply and prettily, so that it was very hard for me to shake it and let it go instead of keeping it. But there was somebody else to shake hands, also, and he standing on the other side of Deacon Olmstead, put out his long, lank fingers, in black silk gloves, and per formed the ceremony, winch he always weot through with when one offered to shake hands with him, and which could not have been agreeable to anything except the vil lage pump "Mr. Bitterworth,"said Deacon Olmstead, waving his hand towards my companion with impressment, "Mr. Dove," and he glanced at me. Who should say he is of no importance? "fs tea ready, my dear?" Sht replied tlat tea was ready, and we went into the old fashioned house, for we were going to take tea with Deacon Olm .-.tead, and, moreover, to spend the night be neath his roof, having c'roe to W on church husinesss, Deacon Olmstead always uiakin a point ot entertaining two young ministers on such occasions. The Rev. Bci junto Bitterworth was nucb older than 1, and much more import ant in every way. I had been lately called to struggling little churches, exceedingly un fortunate in 'he way of difficulties and debts where the congregation seldom paid any sal ary, and always considered themselves ill ned by the minister, who, in turn, was mi how alwaa> injured by the personage called E der Babshaw-, and some body was always accused of ratsapprotaiing the cnurch tunds I never could discover what thev were. And the R. v. Silas Snow, having aM ii French 1.-aVc in gieat disgust, the C'.n gi■;..( "ii ad catted t'-r an 'enterprising \ lilt- n o is.tl, and I ti.Ve been selected But I t Beijaoiiii Bitterworth a warm nost bad been ready, and every one had predicted fun immense succes. li swas a cnntry church also, but it was a rich one, and he had friends and influences and everything, which I had not. Deacon Oiinstead showed that he knew this by eve ry glance of Ins eye and every tone of his voice. But Rose Olmstead, who—her father be Ing a minister— was mistress of the house. 1 exhibited no partiality. On the contrary, I thirk she liked me best; and though Ben jamin Bitterworth, long and lank, leaned across the table to talk to her in his oily tones over and over again, somehow she al ways returned to our old conversation as often as she could, and made mo very happy with her girlish prattle. She knew the village which had been my boyhood's home, and had seen and spoken to a sister f mine, dead years before; so we found many subjects in common But even had we had none—had we spoken in differ ent language, unintelligible to each other—l am sure that to have sat boside Rose O l,m stead, with her eyes lot king into mine—not bolkly, only frankly —would have been worth the most eloquent words that ever lell from any other woman's lips. It was a very pleasant evening, for after wards, in the gloaming, we went out upon the porch, and she took me down to see the 1 roses in the garden and the honey-suckle arbor over the little seat where -6he sat eve rp afternoon at work, and we stayed s6 long that Deacon Olmstead came down after us and sedded Rose for wetting her feet in the dew, and had something of great moment to say to me, so that Benjamin Bitterworth offered his arm to Rose to escort Imr through the garden, while I walked behind with her father. We went back to the porch after that and to the parlor' and soon there were family prayers and a gecia! good-night. But it beirg a hi tght summer eventrg, with all the windows ' pen, I sitting at mine, and looking at the moon, heard some one sngiing, and knew tha", of all the household, it Could only he Rose. It was a sad song and a sweet one —a farewell, a plaintive fall in it that was -very touching, and I knelt beside my window and with my head upon my hand shed tears thinking what if 1 were that departing lover, and Rose Olmstead sang that farewell song to me. Do we never unc msciouajy reach the fumre ? Sometimes I think so. As we walked away to take the stage the nexi morning. Benjamin Bitterworth wore a 1 queer t-mile upon his face, and rubbed h's long black gloves as though something pleas ed hnn mightily At last he said to me in hisoily tones, with a peculiar affectation of * accent which it had pleased him to adopt: "Brother Dove, I want to ask your opinion on an important subject." This was odd. My opinion had never been considered of any importance before, but I bowed my head and waited. "Do you believe, brother Doue, that Rose Olmstead would make a good clergyman's wife ?" That was the question. My cheeks flush ed scarlet. My heart beat loudly, but I turn ed toward Benjamin and looked him full in the face. ' I know she would make a good wife for any man whomight be fortunate enough to win her love," I answered. "Lovt-!" Benjamin Bitterworth elevated his eyebrows. "We were not speaking of love, I believe," he said, "but of Gtneso* We should put the vanities of this carnal world out of the question when we look for wives, brother dove." "I believe that she would be admirably fitted for the position," he said, "and I in tend to act upon the belief. I have been re solved to marry lor several years, and Dea con Olmstead's daughter appears to have excellent qualities—l shall offer her my hand." "Perhaps she will not accept." I said it angrily. My voice was not un der my control at that moment. Benjamin Bitterwurth understood me- -I saw that in his cold, black eye. But he answered with out caiotion— "Her father would decide that, I think.— He .s a man of judgment, and she is an obe dient daughter." "Perhaps she might choose for herself," 1 answered. "Perhaps," said Benjamin, "but I think she has been brought up well," "You may have rivals," 1 continued. "ft is not consistent with my cloth to be any man's rival," replied Benjamin. '"What I do, brother Dovei I do from a sense ot duty.j' " We said no more, hut went on toward the *tage, he treading softly along the road on the tips of his polished boots, his thin lips saT:ctimoniou>|y pressed togetner, his black gloved hands folded behind his back, while I warm and angry, put a strong restraint up on myself to walk beside him decriously. Afier this day we met only under Deacon Olmstead's roof, hut we met there often. 1 went thither to see Rosa. I made no dis guise of the fact. He, Benjamin Bitterworth at aloof, talking to her father, as a general thing, and then only, as it seemed, to prove Ins power, In whatever he did in this way, he was aided and abetted by old Deacon Olmstead. I could ee that plainly. Bui I saw also that Rose began to like me very much. Iu that 1 trusted, for, though a stern parent, Deacon Olmstead seemed to love his daughter- Summer faded, and the roses to my darling's garden died with it. At last I spoke to her saying something like this : "I love you, Rose—l think I love you more than man ever loven woman. Can you ( love tne well enough to he my wife ?" And the golden curls sank low upon my shdulder, and 1 gathered my darling up against my heart. We were in the garden then, beside a great elm, older than the old House itself, aud sheltered by it, we slood together, I supporting her ; she leaning on my breast j and vre saw nothing save each other's faces, and heard nothiug save each other's voices ; and I took the little hand in mine, and slipped a tiny ring upon the taper finget—one tfiat had been inr mother's be trothal ring, and which upon her death-bed she had given me, bidding me to give it to the girl I lovedupon the day she promised to mairy me. Ami s< (he sun went down, and the elm, tree's shadow lay long and deep across the path, and mingled with it, tell another shad ow— that of Rose Olmstead's father. He came upon us suddenly, and found us stand ing together Ruse would have shrunk from me but I would not let her go. ''She has promised to be my wife, sir," 1 said, '"Give u your blessing. You will give her to me will you not 7 1 love her very dearly." The deacon's face was like a stone. f could not read its import; but he drew his daughter toward him and 6tood between us. "You have done wrong, Mr. Dove," he said, "very wrong. She is young, and has but lit'Je judgment. 1 will speak to her alone, 1 should have spoken to her before, bat 1 thought one of your profession could be trusted. Good evening. Come Rose." And be passed i; to the house, taking her with bun; and as 1 left the garden, 1 saw Benjamin Bitterworjh, with his stalely steps and folded hands, making his way along the road. The next day a boy came to my study with a note. It was from Deacon Olmstead, and summoned me to his dwelling. 1 went at once, and in the parlor found Rose, pa! as a lilly, silting bsside her father. Shee looked at me as 1 came in, for one moment, and then turned her face aside, and hid it with her hands. Her lather spoke to her. "Were you older, Mr. Dove, 1 might he harsher, but 1 regard you both as very in nocent and very inexperienced. Had I knnwn this baby-play of courtship was going on, it should have been stopped before. It is not too late now. Rose sees her folly— She his resolved to obey me. Some trifle of T®HMB 82.00 PER AJI IM fljff yours—a ring, 1 believe—she will return ta you, ami then yon will part. Rose left her seat aa he turned toward her and crossing the room, calmly and sadly laid the betrothal ring in my haid. "Good-by," she said : "I must obey papa It is all over between us. Good bye, Wil liam." But 1 could not be so calm. 1 caught her band and turned toward the stern old man with his iron face. "Do you remember your own youth ?" 1 cried. "Do you know what you are do ing V* And he answered, "My duty, 1 hope. 1 shall endeavor to secure the best interests of my daughter. Ycu will cease to urge the point when you hear that she is to marry the Rev. Dr. Benjamin Bitterworth a week from next Sunday." "Marry him ! " 1 cried. "Rose have you consented to this I Are you false to me ? Have you—" He checked me with a solemn wave of the hand. " You have done your best to fill mv daughter's head with folly," he said, "but you have not succeeded. She has chosen for her protector one of mature judgement, and 1 am glad of it." "Rose," 1 cried, "is this true ? Have you, of your own will chosen him ?" "My father has commanded me," was the answer, "and 1 must obey." 1 turned from her, and fled from the room and the house, mad and blind with grief and indignation. "She is not what 1 thought her," 1 said "She has been won by gold. My property has lost her to me." • Yet 1 loved her still, and the world seemed dark and desolate. 1 had wild thoughts of wandering away and hiding myself from the eye of mortal man, and was thankful that excitement made me rea'ly so ill that on Sun day of the wedding 1 had ample excuse for deserting my pulpit, and, having procured a substitute spending the day in my own room This at least was my intention, but,as the hours crept on, an influence which 1 found it impossible to resist urged me to leave the house and go across the fields, and through the village co the church where Rose was to he married, aDd witness the ceremony. 1 think 1 was feverish—almost delirious.— Surely, wise judgement would have led me to any other spot in the universe. But 1 went. It was a winter day, and the 6now lav thickly on the country path 1 trod. It whitened the roofs and clung to the tall spire, from which the bell rang clear and sharp, upon the frosty air, 1 listened to it. "Sorely," 1 said, "some awkward hand is at the rope ; it is more like the peal tolled for the dead than that rung for a merry wed ding." But this might have been my fancy for everything looked dark to me that day. 1 knew this was so, for as 1 sat in sheltered spot on the gallery looking down, those who came in seemed to wear sad countenances and to exchange mournful whispers,— yet still the thought that it wus more like afu neral of my brightest hopes, of every mour ful dream which 1 have cherished." Then there was a whisper— a stir. The bride was coming, 1 should see her again. Could 1 bear it ? 1 strained my eyes. How slowly thev eame, how gravely heads were bent ; and they were dressed in black every one of them. Was 1 going mad ? 1 saw old Deacon Olmstead ; 1 saw Benjamin Bit terworth. And what was this? O merci ful Heaven ! tho bride was coming, not in bridal wreath and veil blushing and beauti ul, but cold and white as marble, lying be neath that sable pall, motionless, sightless, dead to wor Is of earthly love for evermore. Rose Olmstead was dead. They who lifted me from the floor, where I had fallen, told me that she had died the night before ; that she had been failing for the last few days ; and that on that night she had risen and knelt down to pray, it was believed, for they found her kneeling with her face upon her hands, quite dead. -'Her heart is broken," the doctors said and 1 be lieve them. I was very ill after this so ill that they feared 1 must die. But Death chose those who were happier, and left me. 1 dwell now in the same old place, where 1 can sit beside my darling's grave in the twilight of the Sabbath eve, —an old man, weary with the weight of years. Yet 1 shall be young again sometime—young and happy in Heaven with my lost one. O N EL " One hour gained by rising early, is worth a month in a vear.
