Thh fragment of a witoh atory, lika its predecessor, comes to ua from such an authentic aource that we dare not disbelieve. Let BS read then, and be profited. Mistress Cicely Dunham, blooming and happy, took down her milk-pail, one even-tlde, and bnm-nilng a gay, old-time ditty, wended her way to the bani-yard where patient UooUy waited to he milked, with her liead through the ban. I t was one of tba'lovelieat of snmmer evenings. All ^ e moontaio-aidea were regal in Ibeir wealth oT boveringjmrpla ibadowa that deepened in tk« rln e iwiiuwb twaoH light gloom, and in all the evening sky ann-aet'a roay flush wm aofUyglowing,—bum-log with a broad n d g ia n behind the old ( k y barn in whaaa cool ahadow Miatress Cioely waaatanding. Some sense of all Ibis beaatyimptamid itself on her rather pnn sale Blind, and she leaned against the bar-way-^ iar ayer on the-breadth of narrow valley bafore her. wliere some of tbe aun'a rays seemed to have got anlaagled and dissolved to float in golden mist over wood and hill. The crickete wera all a-cbirp in tha stubbly graas, fining her ears with their Incessant evening masic. Turning away from the bright ptospea, she tbreac down the bars, brought out her IlUng^tool from the cow-shed, talking gently to the old cow tbe while, as women are wont to do, and seathig herself essayed to milk, when tbe old cow rose majestically to th e t<v o f tbe cow-yard fence. Here ^aa a atndy for a painter:—llbtress Cioely on her low milking-rtool with tbe ovartamed pail a t her feet, gacing np with woodar«tmck ayea a t the old cow's huge flgnre looming np againat the sanaet glow— amatad and horrified a t seeing her walk recklessly round and round on the narrow rail tbat bent and creaked under her weight, bBt wlilcb atlll upheld h e rj the poor beast returning her mistress's horrified gaze with gentle eyes that seem tosay— *' Bepntach me not I FiA aa much surprised as yon are to find myself performing anch antic* 1 ” But when UistreM Cicely bad recover^ her aenses—anfilciently a t any rate, to swing her pail aud shout,—" Qe« npl go 'long t go lonjRl" tbe possessed beast JuRiped down and stood demurely by her mistress wailiog to' be milked. But all efiiirta to draw tbe lacteal fluid" proved fhiitless, and the mistress imve up in intense disgust, and aet about ridding tier cow of tbe evil spirit with which she poase**ed. I t would hardly do to vatUealarly food oT taciUi« wbaoavarab' oppoitanlty prseeatad ilaeir. It aa fallows: « UMaM Day *ar a H i 4M Aa« IfeB «avU a n t k te Hanadi a n y I •• Oniy ” waa hU wife'* maM». 1 «heab»ve oo^>let was oTlen va riad with ZhaflhOdNa « ( iM a l wulad bn Aad«hai«(daaBt'4 cy, or rather tbe result of her poverty from which she naturally wished to be delivered, and accordingly sought the great jewel as the means of giving her wealth and comfort. I t was her custom to start out on dark and misty nights—sometimes with her lantern, sometimes with nothing but her stafl’ to guide her—and to ramble for hours over the wet, sodden fields, fearless of any danger and unmindful of fatigue in her scramble over rocks aud bogs, and through briers and bushes. I t requires no great eflbrt of imagination to see the old creature—wet, tom and draggled—pressing resolutely thrbugb all obstacles, ^le gleam of her lantern some* times lighting up her uncouth figure, or throwing a d u n c e upon her thin, weird features, lit up with the wild enthusiasm of her search; pausing on some rocky knoll to peer into the blank of darkness before her; straining her eyes to catch the red, molton glow of the great jewel which she hopes to see gleaming in the distance. Then, disappointed but not a whit discouraged, ahe presse* acroi* the drenched field*—*wallow-ed np in tbe darknea* aave the twinkle of her lantern that flicker* hara and tte re through the mist like lome wandering will-o' wisp, and pushing through the bog^ead-ows to the swamp's edge she peen into tbe alimy depths where the black water allps nolseleuly through the rank herbage, and tbe frog« are singing shrilly, bu t sees only the reflected gleam o f her own lantern. One would think that a few Bight wcurslons like these would a t Iw t have dampened hSt enthusium aom ew ^ , but it seemed to increase' in^ roportion to her disappointment. Her ardor continued unabated, and wben a new road was cut across from the old to a new pohit, more'convenient for trav> ei, her fancy inaUntly aelected a shelving, rocky cat of aome extent aa tbe w ry spot where *be diould find bar carbuncle waiting for her *0010 lucky nighi: But abe was dMmed to diaappointment. Though she *karched night after night, and literally *aun<«i i t jaJUuJt.ssanlBea.-w Icle ever greeted her old eyes that had grown bleared and wild with long searching. But that was better tban to be wandering In swamp* and on mouDtein sides, even though it startled loma belated pedeitrian to itum-ble upon her ancient figure prowllDg by tbe wayside long after honest folk were abed. Perhapa tbe old creature longed forthi* in* estimable jewel as the means of keeping herself from the town-bonia which was ever yawning to receive her. and, if that waa the case, I wish she could have found it, for me-thinks iU charity is generally cold-hearted enough a t best. But a time came wben the old limba refused to go treuure-hnnting, and tbe town-house awallowed her up. But, after all.

Wangombaug lake had never seemed ao beautiful, allbough tbe green trees upon ^ little center island seemed to bend more slowly and sadly down to their shadows, and the birds that fluttered in the bolder ahrub-bery sang less merrily than tofore. and the green calices drooped a little more cloaely-over tlie clear rich petals of the water lilies. Mooring the little boat to its accustomed rest and gathering some of the prettiest of the flowetg, they took their way homeward.

He talked of the fun of the com' Ing year, begged Sarah to write a little ofU ener, not one to his three, said something of mlsslug her extremely, and rosting upon tbe threshold aa though some word waa left unsaid, some secret which for worlds could not be unburdened, turned abroptly, saying— “ Shall I drink your health, to-night with my college friends, in the red wine, Sarah 1' "Only In water, Frank.

First, two or three of the lily-huds wero put away with tbe withered forget-me-nots. Little things, but how they make or mar our lives in this world I I wonder if all of ua have stored away soma dear remembrances of departed daya and friends. 1 have a Bible, a tiny cross, and a lock of hair, tbat tell of sebool-boun and trials and cheer and duat; k poem with IU margins all pencilled with the thoughta of another, pressed dalsiea and myrtlea with theyelhtw flowers between, speidt of aad daysgona by; and a little ornament hong pened.M !» jiia e a 'a a . his usaal^go4^ manaar^f a o n t a n a |io a f ^ ly a di|(h t Bsalai^i s " j I'vdlfseB thinking that a ^ p ^ t o y i ^ schoot-jlitifie wouU give me a Utile ra d r a a t^ from diity.

After a few pre-llmlnarlea aa to route and tbae and hotel being arranged, he took his leave. OHAPTEB va SaaAB bad arrived at the familiar seminary. Everything waa oheerfnl; pleasant faces gathering fIrom the vacation, some rejoicing to get away fhim seven restraint at home, others pouty and gloomy to come back to closer keeping. Every variety of disposition look and man-per were nprosented. Dr. Wellesley had come up from the nelghborlug hotel to aee bla charge In the early SeptemMr morning. " Lovely morning I shall we take our proposed walk, now 1 ’’ “ With pleasnn," and 'the graceful hat gloves were soon In place, and the happy pair on their way. " A charming city 1 What going so ihr o u t i " as Sarah tamed toward tbe suburbs through a narrow passage. "Thero ia the house yonder, cosy and pleasant though small. She will hardly think of seeing us this moroing." *■ Bit down here under the great tree*, my Carrie, and n s t a moment, 1 have a few words to say, and you must know all about my errand here. I have told no one elae. Do yon know why I callyou Carriel Yeal yes I so like her I Just such wonderbig, melting eyes, and the month lika bar mother's, but like h irt tool " Sarah, when I waa a young man, you see my black hair is grey now and my dark eyea are faded, when 1 was young I loved a gentle, delicate girl, fond of everything beautiful. A little proud vaty be, but enibnslaatlo and' winning, a nflned, a lovely character, fitted tor the wife of any, one who would have delighted to walk up the same holy path In wbicb 1 have had my calling, who would have loved and been loved by all, very generous and so kind. " She'wss your mother's sbter, your own aunt, and ber name waa—Carrie Burt. Unlike yonr mother in some things, not so beautiful nor brilliant, nor dashing, but less b u ty , perhaps, and an eameet Chrlstfain. " I waa through my college courae, had purchaaed my pleaMnt home with themeana left me by my father, bad aaked her tu te in fitting it, and everything w u roady for tbe gratlflcation of the dearest wish of my h eart; but that fatal September, nearly thirty years ago blasted all. Consumption rapidly undermined tbe frail constitution, and In three brief montha Carrie lay In our little Oakvale down beneath tbe sod. '* For yean and y ean life aeemad a perfect blank. I traveled, I came back to pnach to my aympathUlng people, and u l found tbelr love cloeing about me, I partially reconciled to my lot. “ At iMt my home was so desolate that I won a tender flower, never forgeettlng Carrie, but In my weakness getting a fhtil one aa much like her aa possible, only In t' short y ean to feel tbe double blow of a second death. Charlie b u grown almost to manhood, b u , like yourself, much of Car-rle'a tastes and bis mother's noble heart and winning manner. “ Again my home aeems dismal, and Sarah, Sarah, 1 have thonght of taking another to my heart. Do yon tbhik Mrs. Browning would aver become my w ifsl for I know I shall like her u yon have done so. She Is younger, but I have a young heart too." H Almost my nude," thought Sarah, as she listened with deep interest to his fervent words. "Only might have been.” Ob! how many have said those worda in agony or In blind despair. I t Is tbe knell of dying hope, the ground tom afresh over a burled sorrow. " My father, almost, too ; and a better one than he who bears tbat name tbat should be precious.'' I t was a happy thought; strange that it liad never come to her mind before. “ I am suro that sbo would like yon, doctor. You aro admirably fitted for each other.

Tbe next day fbund hha u before a t widow Browning’s, and now th e n w u a little confldentIal.Gommnnicatk>n of home matters. “ Wen you ever in Biver C ityl 1 would love to have you see my pleasant homo; very comfortable, I u s u n yoa, aad my people a n so kind and tboaghtfU.

Tha old flush cams over her cheoka, and ih e Dr. thonght the pale lace w u vary a ttractive, not to say pretty. Healso had become enthnsiutic, glowingly described the scenery, laughingly told some anecdptw of early life- the good pointe of a story wen neter lost to bhn. Sarah Mt w ith her face ahacet between the leavw of a book, bnt cu tin g now and theo a glance a t the sociable pair. Over aa hoar had paiaed. "Come doctor, we shall make Mrs. Browning over glad with our protracted visit.- “ Yaa, yea; I had no idea how late it w u growing a Almost twelve," and he ahowed somewhat conaplcnously a flne gold waUb, a valuable preaentftami some of hia wealthy parishiouen. “ I shall see yon both again, aoon, I hope. I t' makee my daya seem less long and ao much happier, from the sight of pleasant fa> cea," said Mrs. Browning. “ I shall certabily call befon 1 leave town," and the doctor bowed In hia moat po* llte atyle, and both w en soon out of sight of the widow's home. " P leu an t lady, Sarah; so nflned, aud such an excellent conversationist." Ab I she had tact, for she w u a thorongh-bred lady. She had allowed hbn to takethe principal part of tbe converaatiop, asking now and then some leading qnaation, or giv-ing a p le a au t assent; and he thought, as any man doea wben he h u a charming lU-tener, that that IM tntr w u infinitely agreeable. A man may admir$ tha brillfamcy of a gifted woman, bnt lo rtt battw, by fbr, one who h u snflleient skill to make him seem snperfor. Human n a tn n is about the same the world over. Make a man or woman believe that they a n eatertainbig, cnl> tivated and well-bred, not by any flattary nor by a servile manner, but by a raapeetlbl and courteous demeanor, and nine caaea oat of ten, yoa will be thonght sarpaningly in-tereating, perhapa angelic.
