What have I done!" exclaimed Nellie, under her breath, as sad and dismayed she hurried up the garden path. "I-Ie will never be kind to me any more. How could 1 have said such a thing?" And her hands trembled so that she could scarcely lift the latch of the old-fashioned door, and she turned away to quiet herself a little before going in.

At h was carefully on his tender and gentle-natured could not help slightly Miss Bassett was an of Nellie's and a great hi tress, and she had taken a fancy to spend ;he remainder of the summer in the ola tumble-down farm-house which Nellie cafed home. Edward was very attent ve", even specially kind to Nellie, on the r way to the station, and her heart wcjit out to him "If only I had not saiJj that she thought, as the dog-calk stopped and he carefully lifted her out. "I hope—oh, I do hope that he may forgfet 4t." The train ran iuiff^Th&re was pretty Gracie Bassett's facefltt a iirst-c^s carriage window, and in a f<|w minutes she was seated in the dog-cart beside Edward, chatting to and laughing with him as if she had known him for years, and Nellie had taken the seat behind., And that was not the' only drive they hied, nor the^nly evening they spent in chatting and laughing. Nell ie an d her father jind mother—all three, and many of the neighbors beside, soon saw what it would jfome tov. And Nellie grew older and grater day by day But as yet she kept her 6wn secret, and she hoped more and m^re that Edward had forgotten her .foolish, thoughtless words^ on a certain moon ight night, now some seven or eight week $ ago. ^ At last the engagementewas announced. Grace Bassett had no with her, and flattered tions, and quite belie liini "quite enough had ttgreed that the place as s&on as all coul.I be made. "Yon know,^T« two sat sewing in t to interfere Iward's afcten-fthat she loved [happiness," she should take arrangements she, as the one hot on his Edward looked pained, aud Nellie mused wonderingly over it all, as he in moody silence escorted her home. Could all this have happened in a |ious§jyhere love was lord? No, indeed. "A woman," thought Nellie, "who loves, loves also to obey." But this proved to be only the beginning of small discomforts and disagreements. Many months passed, Grace grew more imperious than ever, and Edward's face lost all its brightness, and he seemed day by day to grow old and silent aud sad. And when Nellie went to see them now she found that unless Grace expected visitors she took but small pains with herself, remarking sometimes to Nellie as they went down stairs for the evening: "I have not dressed, Nellie. Of course you don't mind, and there's nobody else but Edward." \. Nobody but Edward! Love would have made liira all the world to Nellie. "I would wrear my prettiest and best dresses for my husband, Gracie," she said. "As for other people, they might go. What should I care for them. But Grace only frowned for reply Nellie had not been to see them for some time, and various small circumstances caused her to suspect that they had had a serious quarrel. Grace had gone out for a fortnight—all alone—and Nellie's father, taking pity upon solitary, sorrowful-looking Edward, had invited him to-spend an evening with them. After tea he sauntered into the garden, and he was gone so long that Nellie went to look for him. She glanced under the shady trees—it was Summer again, now— but he was not to be seen. Then she came to the Summer-house. Ah, there he was, leaning forward on the little green-painted table, his head in his hands, and Nellie heard him murmur in a low moaning tone: "I wish, oh! I wish " « The rest was indistinct, and his longing, whatever it might be, was still his own secret. And Nellie passed softly on aud .iu -do,or s. . s-%.. - Grace had a little daughter, but instead of rejoicing in Edward's house, there was as the young husband He is very fond of music." I asked who he was and she looked • " He is my best friend. He is an actor, and is coming over from Washington." I remembered what her mother had told me and I changed the topic of conversation. In the afternoon about 4 o'clock I was sitting in the parlor with Estelle when her brother Bob came in with a let ler for her. She blushed when she saw the handwriting on the envelope, and tore it open hastily. Then her expression changed, and she showed that she was disappointed. She read the letter twff or three times, and then exclaimed: " It's too bad. He isn't coming, think he might have written more than that, don't you ?" She tossed the letter to me, and turning around to the piano began playing. The note read: " APRIL 12.—It will not be possible for me to keep the appointment for this afternoon.- I regret it much, but business interferes. J. W. B." Three days after that I was to go home. I got up early to help make arrangements and went out on the street, where I heard of the assassination of Lincoln. When 1 returned Mrs. and Estelle were awaiting my appearance to sit down to breakfast. I was greatly excited, and exclaimed as I entered: " President Lincoln was murdered in Washington last night!" Both ladies screamed and looked frightened, and Mrs. cried ont: "Oh, they will kill all of us who are friends of the South ? Who did it ?" A scoundrelly actor named Booth— John Wilkes Booth. * : The words were scarcely out of my mouth before Est^le gave a scream—such a horrible scream that I shall never forget it—and then she fell forward upon the table, and from there to the floor, dragging the breakfast things about her with a crash. The mother seemed almost as much affected as her daughter, but she loosened Estelle's dress and lifted her up while I bathed her head with water. I was terribly confused, but I suggested that I should go for a doctor. Mrs. at the mere suggestion almost screamed. "No! no! No one must know it!" " Know what ?" I asked.

Nellie glanced up at the rambling old farmhouse, which had beeu lier home for so many years. How she loved it! Every nook and corner that it contained was dear to her. "I have it, and all in it, left to me," she said, in a soft, sad tone: and dear father aud mother, too. A happy, happy home it has always been, and I am thankful for it! But, oh, Edward, liow could you be so unking? Oh ! how could you?" She listened, fancying she could hear his departing footsteps yet. And perhaps she might have done so. ^ With lofty looks and disdainful curve of his rather thin lips, he was on his way home along the winding lanes. He was a man of five-and-thlrty, while Nellie was scarcely twenty. Slid was simple and innocent as a child; but he had learned many a lesson in the school of life ere this. Yet another was in store for him, and probably another and another—for while we live we must learn; and we will learn—so foolish are wc—in the most costly and laborious way, for the most-part. "Experience keeps a dear school." says the proverb, "but fools will go to no other." And are we not all fools until hard and inexorable experience has knocked and kneaded wisdom into us? And one lesson which Edwanl Melville prided himself upon having learned was the value of money. lie was a bachelor, and so he made up his mind he would remain until he could find a woman with money who would be his wife. He himself was a country doctor, and, with a very small and not increasing practice, it would never do to marry and have nothing but that to depend upon, he told himself. He had generally escorted Nellie to her own door, after their evening walks, but this*evcning he had left her just outside the gate. He was her aunt's stepson. She had known him all her young life, and had always called him Cousin Edward, all unsuspicious of the feeling which was steadily gaining strength within her heart, till this evening. And Edward, for his part, had always treated her as a mere child. "A glorious night;' he murmured, as he leisurely pursued his way; and as he looked round at hamlet and trees, and wayside brook, and rpicturesque farmhouses dotted here and there, all sleeping in the moonlight, the disdainful curve left his lips, and pride and hauteur smoothed themselves away from his brow. "Poor little Nellie!" he said again, with something like a complacent smile^P"I suppose, then, that she car§s a little more for me than I deserve.. It is a great bore, for, of course, it is out of the question that I should—that I could—" He paused, and began humming a tune, and switching the dew-laden hedges with his walking-cane. . "No," he presently recommenced, "one must have enough to bo comfortable. And Nellie has got nothing, and I have got next to nothing. One may put up with the want of a little sentiment, I should" imagine, if one has a tolerable settlement in life. At all events, I mean to try it.'p^ - i^ifcHAPTER It. 411111 "You will go to meet Miss Bassetfe^I suppose, Nellie?" inquired herTjiother^lfj "Oh, yes, mother. .^Edward was; goodj enough to say that lie would drive me i'o thestatiofi in his ^ or Nellie made some; knew what, and then the matter over. love to an undue stood before ev give all the su love, it would utterly She had entirely But now was y endorsed it po^silj)l( thinking been exalting her it had a man would is Jiouse for contemned." the' sentiment-e that she had made a mistake? Gracie Bassett was a year or two older than herself, and probably knew better than She did. Nevertheless, at the conclusion of her cogitations Nellie shook lier head, and half sighed as she answered : "Well, you have, of 'oourfre/a right to your own opinion, but I must say T don't agree with you, that I would rather not marry at all .than marry one whom I did not love. > , Then slie gathereci up her sewin'g and went into the house, singing as she went— shall still l)e lord all.

Edward, when the first benumbing influence of his grief was over, sold his practice—he had no need of it now—and went abroad. Eighteen months • passed away. A man, bronzed and bearded, stood at the gate of the old farmhouse. A little, toddling creature ran down the path, her fair curls flying in the wind. The stranger caught her up. "What is your name, little one?"- v And in a l>aby-voice, she told him, "Gracie Melville," and he covered her little face and hair with kisses. But who was this coming out to look for her? "Auntie Nellie!" she said, in pretty her •;:!0 piping treble, aud slid father's arms. . ^ "Cousin Edward!" exclaimed Nellie, gladly, the color rising .rapidly- to her usually quiet, pale face. And lie shook hands with her; then, keeping the hand he had taken, he led her iu-doors. " ' • . _ * * . * * * *. v ' * "And will you tell me »ow, once more, Nellie dearest, that 3rou will love me better than any one else in the world ?" Nellie swiftly covered his mouth with her hand, while burning blushes dyed her cheeks. "Oh, Cousin Edward, do please forget that I ever said so!" "Not likely," he returned smilingly. 'Ah, Nellie," and he was serious now, 'I have learned my lesson since that evening. I have learned to value love, not as it deserves, but at least to set it above everything earthly. My Nellie! do not tell me that your love for me is dead!" Never mind Nellie's reply. Two months from that day she became Edward's wife, and he never had the smallest need to remind her that she had promised to. obey him, simply because she loved him, and gto do as lie wished was a pleasure. And having at great risk and cost learned his lesson, Edward strove to teach it to others, and to more than one young man he gave in confidence the advice: If you wish to be happy, marry only a woman who l,oves you. Neither money nor position, nor anything else, can bear the least comparison with love, which will outlive them all." didVnot there two days longer, as I Mrs. —— might need me, but she said she preferred to be alone, and I left, after promising her not to tell what I knew. She was wild with terror, and feared that her daughter might be suspected-of having some connection. with the plot of Booth and his companion. Estelle was ill and did not leave her room, and I never £ aw her after that awfnl morning, poor girl! A Sensational Story. . ' * CONNECTED .WITH HIE KILLING OF PRESI-DENT LINCOLN. : r Miss Estelle was not v<£y friendly toward me for the first day or two. I was young enough to be enthusiastic in my politics; and I had the Pittsburg backbone in tliem, and the young lady seemed to giiess this, and avoided any talk with me about the war, although she sometimes talked to me through her mother. I was fortunately fond of music and knew something about it; This bridged the chasm between us aud finally mads us pretty good frietidS and tolerant of each other's opinions-. - Well, one morning—«it was ,Wednesday, I remember—Miss Es-^ telle and X" were at. the breakfast table, having excused herself, as ttoe_- . . . . . . For the Winter—Cloaks, "Wraps, etc. The shopping season is now at its height, and the chief topic of conversation in half the coteries of fair women who meet together is the material and make of the autumn and winter dresses. In every country village, in farmhouses without number throughout this continent, arc women watching the latest fasJiion bulletins, sending for samples and catalogues, and contriving in sundry ways to compete with their city sisters. The days of "homespun" are passed away from "mountain or marsh." Tliere is no ftict more clearly illustrative of native enterprise than tliis growth in taste, and the rapidity with which styles that are accepted as good in the city penetrate the backwoods of the country. The most elegant wraps are long enough to completely cover the dress worn beneath them. They are in the general shape of the Mandarin cloaks worn last winter. The new garments, however, are fitted more closely to the figure than last winter, and are often left open from the waist in front to display the tablicr of the dress. The new cloaks are generally finished by two large reversed box pleats at the seams at the back, to give sufficient fullness for the large tournures now worn. A handsome cloak of black brocaded plush shows a satin ground figured with large plush leaves. The garment is fitted closer to the figure at thwack as far as the tournure. The skirt of the garment is made bouffant by large pleats and a slight drapery at the back. The front of the garment is draped on to the tournure, leaving the tablier of the dress displayed. The pointed dolman sleeves are trimmed with ruchings of chenille and a heavy cord of chenille, as large as the narrow tip of an old-fashioned boa, passes around the neck and ties in a loop and cord in front. The most elegant materials, of rich wraps are brocaded plush, satin damask and velvet damask. Large cloaks which extend nearly to the foot of the dress are again worn, made of camel's-hair shawls and trimmed with a heavy ruching of sewing silk in the mingling colors of the shawl. These wraps are lined with quilted satin in crimson, peacock blue or some bright shade of the wrap. Fancy cloakings are imported, woven in many rich colors like an India shawl and finished with a heavy beaver back. This cloaking is made into Persiaii wraps and lined with colored satin in some jfch old shade like copper red, shrimppirnBbr crushed strawberry. The new mateAUs for black, wool wraps are impbrted in fine Ottoman cords and in a variety of figured wool matelasse cloths. These wraps will generally be made in close-fitting pelisse style, with a vest of velvet or satin inserted*in -front, and band trimmings of passementeries of cord oir bands of ftir. The pelisse Is generally considered a most suitable style for Wool garment unless it is made of the material of the dress.

One by one the best and fairest

Let us render tribute still,
For the sunshine or the shadow,
For the torrent or the rill.
