She lay before me in her little shroud,
Her pale hands soaly folded on her breast,
As if o'erwearied, she had sank to rest.
To dream of heaven s and of the radiant crowd
That tread its golden pavements. Not a trace
Of dying anguish lingered on her face:
But on her lips a sweetly serious. smile
Still seemed to play—a token front The Lord
Of bliss won her sinless spirii poured.
Then came a thought of Him who blessed, erewhilc,
Young children—" Suffer them to come to me ""
Still thrilled that heavenly voice upon my car,
And my heart answered, as I dropped a tear.
Thy will be done !—we leave our child with 'Thee
When over her sweet face the coffin lid
Was closed for ever, and with tents we gave
Our loveliest to the keeping of the grave,
(And who that knew her would our tears forbid?)
" Tic a sad world," said one, '• a world of woe,
Where sorrow reigns supreme." Yet frommy heart
The all-sustaining hope did not depart;
But to its impulse true, I answered- 0 1%7'o!
The world has much of good—nor seldom Joy
Over our spirits broods with radiant wing!
Gladness from grief, and life front death, may spring;
Treasures are ours the grave cannot destroy,
Then chide not harshly our instructress stern,
Whose solemn lessons Wisdom bids us learn!"
Of all the titles woman fair—
Pear woman—here can ever bear—
Though all ere holy words to me,
Associate in my heart to be,
With holy thoughts and things—
Yet one among them ever brings
Such gushing feelings on its wings—
Such memories of Love and Care—
Of Trust and Faith In days that were,
Of Hope and Joy for time to come—
Of Truth—of Chastity—and florae—
, That of all others, that I feel,
I love thee best in woe or *veal.

I have seen many coquettes by nature and many

never one who failed so completely as my lovely

that her mind trained under these influences, took
an artificial bias. And indeed, what young beauty,
spoiled by education, lortune, and the close friend
ship of romantic school-girls, would have a differ
ent ambition on her first. peep at the world from
that of supremacy over the lords of creation /
And so Rose Montrose flirted, and laughed, and
played the unmerciful despot. But I who knew
her well, was perfectly aware that all this was for
eign to liar character: I believed, in fact, that her
arbitrary commands arose from a nervous timidity,
striving to conceal itself in the role she would act,
just as cowards sometimes in endeavoring to asaumo
coolness, rush desperately into the wildest dangers.
In n 8 other way could I account for her caprice of
a moment and reeling for the next hour. Her lov
ers were as perplexed as they were disheartened.
Her playful pettishness would occasionally subside,
and then break forth in a torrent of sparkling wit
at the first semblance of sentiment or feeling.
'rite truth was, that she knew the sacred fulness of
heart's emotion, and shrank from exposing it to
one, who might see but could not understand. As

until their path ceased before the verge of a cliff

It was to stop the nervous beating of her heart.

she shuddered and calmly added, " Come let us

They walked back in silence.
Late in the evening Sumner left the house of Mr.
News after en unsatisfactory visit. He saw that
much of her coquetry was effected, but there was
still enough to cause him serious uneasiness. Sev
eral times had he endeavored to draw from her en

lova.-yet hitherto she had avoided tile subject with
the full tact of woman, as he bitterly called her
girlish, blushing timidity. But she had now al.

and he vowed to appear before her on the morrow
with a claim torso audience, which she could not
avoid. There was a. scorn too, as he fancied in her
tone when she praised the carotid wisdom of mod.
ern lovers. He determined to obtain the flowers
that very night when none were abroad to witness
and ridicule his attempt.
This chivalmus plan required some rather unro.
mantic means in the shape of an iron bar and a
coil of rope. These he procured from his sleepy
landlord, and-after a few minutes brisk walking,
prepared to descend Vienne with their help. The
bar was firmly driven into the earth, and the rope
with knots every few feet fastened to it securely.
With a strong grasp he then 'commenced his de
About halfway down he stopped to rest for a
moment upon a crag that pushed itself boldly .out
from the almost perpendicular side of the precipice.
Descending still farther, he found that the rope
resting upon the edge of this rock just. above, sus.
pended him at some dozen feet out from the main
wall ; but when he had swung just opposite to the
flowers, a few violent springs enabled him to gain
a firm foothold. The prize was now in his grasp,
but in the eagerness of success, he loosed his hold
of the rope, and it swung far out of his reach.
However, there was nothing peculiarly dangerous
in his position. Like the famous samphire.gather.
er, in a similar predicament, he knew that a bold
leap for the rope might save bins, and at the worst
the deep flood was rolling only fifteen or twenty
feet below. Carefully securing the flowers in his
bosom, he watched the oscilition of the rope, and a t

His agile limbs practised in boyhood among his
native Highland mountains and tali sea-clifffs did
not fail him now. Bat hie full weight, cast sod

he dropped into the cold sea. The first natural im

Once on shore he hurried to his quarters in the
village inn. Like a true lover, he first dried the
flowers, and arranged them into a graceful wreath,
and then, more like a man of sense, exchanged his
dripping clothes for a warm bed. But his sense
came too far behind folly, and on the morning

love. A sweet, uncertain tumult of thoughts sur
rounded with enchantment the single idea that love
really reigned within, and swayed the fairy scepter

queenly command upon other's hearts. At that
moment she did not think of his feelings for doubt

had nut seen through her coquettish hypocrisy of
the moment—that, which she then feared he might
perceive; that, which was ; assumed to hide her
heart. Suddenly his step was heard, and—oh! the
mysterious working of Woman's heart—ashamed to
be detected while her face was yet transparent of
feeling, timid and fluttering, she raised her eyes
desperately with a confused consciousness that she
was about to finish het role of the coquette. In her
blindness she fancied that otherwise her heart
would be unavoidedly revealed, and she shrank
from en exposure of its depths—meet of all to him.
She was not yet sufficiently accomplished in her
game, and always bungled sadly. Never more

hand, saying abruptly and in husky tunes,
" Ah, yes these are the pretty fieltiflowers I ad

being so thoughtful, and really deserve some re.

desperate rapidity. "but my band is too useful a

All this was very silly and very cruel, and so Rose
well knew. but for her life site could not say other
wise. He received the glove site carelessly tossed
into his hands: the color fled from his cheeks and

Gone: it was reality then. Rose sprang to the
window, and as she remarked his faltering step, and
rernembeted Alm wild, feverish expression of his
face, know the truth and wept. The wreath was
cast violently upon the floor and trodden under foot:

Early its the next day came his visitors. The
young Spaniard, delicately formed, and with bright
eyes throwing an air of intelligence over his clear
olive and rather Moorish face, finely relieved by
long•' jet tresses descending upon his shoulders,
might perhaps in other circles have become that pet

He seemed about seventeen, certainly no less by the
long delicate moustache that drooped daintily from
the corners of a finely.cut mouth. Though clear
and high toned, his voice seemed somewhat strained

Sumner involuntarily raised his hand as if to clear
