young man who sat besido her, are-
lossly playing wuu ner spools ana scis

Martin, who would hardly at that mo

Crown Princo of Russia. What though

dignity ot a snop oi nis own i anu was
he not stroncl8 Vulcan, and handsome
as Appolo ? And more than this, had
not pretty Emily i'enioru promiscu to

George Martin looked at the gather

siderable perplexity.
"Well, Emmy, I'm sorry myself; I
know it would be far more pleasant to

Isabella and her husband decline to do
anythiug for Aunt Bridget, and I cau't
see the old lady uomeiess, or iu wum., w
long as I have a cup to drink, or crust
to eat. So I have written to her to
come and live with us, as soon as we
were married."
"Without consulting me?"
"Without confulting you for there
was no time to be lost, and I know my
little Emily would not fail to acquiesce
in what I considered best. There's
plenty of room you know, for I have

"Of one thing you may be certain,
George Martin, I shall not marry you

"You're too late for tea, George, but
I can crct vou a cup in no time," said
Jenny, wistfully. She was a fair, deli

eyes, and hair brushed smoothly away
from an oval face.
"Thank you, Jenny, I feci tired and

But the time came when Jenny was
destined to bo still more severely tried.

"I shall not soon forget this ordeal
through which you havo passed."
And Jenny was satisGed to her
mind, her husband's approval was tho
sweetest guerdon she could know I
"Ilereis Aunt Bridget's 'will,' in a
leather picket book, under her pillow,
George she told me where I should
find it," taid Jenny, a liltlo while sub
sequently. "Will you please to take
charge of It !"
Georco danced over the quaiut and
formal document with a rather curious
smile on hil face.
"She leates you her wardrobe, Jen

"Indeed no," said Jeuny, reverently
folding up the ancient garment, "I'll
pot it away and keep it for Am t
Bridget's sake ! !"
"Isabella and her husband will feel
very badly, when they learn what an
inheritance they have lost," said George
Martin, with assumed gruvity. "I won
der if they will come to the funeral ?"
But no body followed poor old Aunt
Bridget to her grave, in the quiet shad
ows of Greenwood, except Mr. and Mrs.
Martin ! the dead leaf fluttered down
at last from its teeblo hold ou the trees
of the world, and thore were but few to

But when, one dreary November ev
