" Ellicott "Vale, I liate you. You took me from my home where I had more than heart could desire, and now yqu, deny me, every little pleasure upon TvhSoh tlset my heart.

She will excuse your absence when41 tell her your health will not allow you to come, an4; I'll be Bure to be home early." AnnQthpaitated for a moment, and then the evil angel triumphed. Her htisbahd saw the signs of an inward struggle upon her countenance, and watched her silently but tenderly, in the hope that her better self would come off victor, but his heart sank as she started toward her room with the yards, " I would go if I were dying, so you may or«e)»^b.e carriage at onoe." She passed out of the. apartment grjfch'C.ut another glance at him, and he stood a moment irresolute, then hastening toward the door of her dressing room he turned the key in the ioc^ " She will be mad enough for any imprudence if she is not hindered," was his mental exclamation, " and I must just go and excuse myself in person." With the hope in his heart that his young wife might be in a better mood when he should return, he went softly out, got int^i.-the c^friage which was; waiting, and ordered the man to drive to B street; but it was a white, weary face that he carried into the gay parlor where his sister met him, and she thought, as he made his excuses, that he was as near being sick himself as Annot could have been. She strove to make him forget' his trouble, whatever its nature, while he remained, hut deep down in his man's, h*4—t he loved his wife too truly ahd devotedly to be careless or light-hearted while."she was suffering, even though it was. through her own waywardness ;, so he put .aside the hand which was laid detainingly oh his shoulder, and said, "No, Annie, no longer to-night. I told Annot I would be hack early;" and his sister could say no more, for she saw that he was ill at ease. But a few words are necessary to describe Annot Yale's position. Just two years before she had came to Lynn a bright, happy bride, with the face and heart of a child, but one spoiled by fond indulgence. In her uncle's house she had, as she said, found no wish un- gratified, since her earliest childhood., and she had come to her husband's home with the idea jn her mind that she was .still to be petted and caressed, stall to be treated with fond and lavish indulgence, while it was never expected that she should do aught m return, save to*try and be happy and contented. So she lived on, taking np thought as to her true position or her real every day duties, in which she might have :fbund the most lasting security of happiness, scarcely conscious whether her husband had, in obtaining his wife, lost his ideal, or gained a nobler one. He had often borne with her little outbursts of disappointment and petu- lanoe, yet though he was a kind husband, he could not be blind to her faults, and dearly as he loved the little wife'he had taken " for better or for worse," yet in his sound, sober sense he could not see her going so miserably astray without remonstran.ee. This Annot, in her selfishness, could not bfook, and she had grown to fancy that her husband did not really care for her, or, if he had done so onoe, that he was tired of her now. • Just now-she fancied she had peculiar cause for complaint. He had spent the half of two evenings lately with his sister, who had moved to the place a month before, when he knew that Sybil Marsh was visiting her, and she knew that he had fancied her once, or at least that his family had done, so, and had been anxious that he .should marry her. There was, however, in reality, no foundation for Annot's jealousy, for.Eln- cott Vale had always been indifferent to the stately beauty of SybiL even before he had met at her uncle's house the little blue-eyed Annot Efarge. Since that time he had scarcely, seen her, and now simply treated her politely as his sister's guest, hardly recognizing her title to be called "chosen friend." This night of all nights, Annot was tempted to be perverse and wicked, and", after hearing her husband shut4 the outer, door, and finding that he had absolutely locked her in, she was almost beside herself with anger and outraged pride. She Would not stop to consider the shame and folly of her course, but, hastily opening her bureau drawers, she took from her jewel-ease part of its contents, hiding it in her" bosom, and, throwing a heavy cloak about her, just in her evening dress as she was, she opened the window that led to the veranda, and stepped out. Even then-it seemed as if the good angel, who . had thus far guarded her life, could not entirely give her up, for, as she advanced a step, her eye fell upon the empty cradle in the corner— the little curtained cradle, that, only two short months ago, had held her smiling babe. • The fierce light in her eyes died out as the tears rushed to to them, and, turning back with hasty impulse, she knelt down by it, and wept such tears as only flow from such a jgrief. Her darling Walter ! Could she leave the home from which he had been buiiedj.and where .every little thing reminded her of him ? He was Ellicott's child, too, and it may be her heart softened toward her husband in that bitter moment, and, had he been near, perhaps she would have sought the shelter and protection of. his strong arms, a better woman; but he was beyond hearing of the sobs that shook her delicate frame, and her heart hardened in her bosom again. She arose and stole cautiously. feom the window out to the lawn,' apd then fled, with hasty steps, toward the station, where, she knew, a train must pass within_ half an hour: As she approached the station, she drew her veil more clogely over her face, that no chance passenger Bhould recognize her : and, when the whistle' sounded clear on the night air, she hurried to .the^platform, being the first one to reach the cars as they stopped. There were two passengers beside herself, both gentlemen, who stepped back for her to get in. She hurried into the dingy car, and dropped into the nearest seat, feeling all the time most uncomfortably conscious that, being alona, she was liable to all sorts of unpleasant accidents. However, no one seemed to notice her, and the train rumbled on, and, almost before she realized it, she found herself in the depot at Boston, with strange faces all about her; rough-looking men staring boldly at her unconscious face, and women looking curiously enough at the rich satin dress peeping out from under the plain waterproof cloak. She stood for a moment, hesitating- which way to turn, when a genteel-looking man approached her, and uttered some idle compliment. But, as Annot terrified, recoiled from him, a strong arm thrust, him one side and pushed him unceremoniously down on the damp pavement; but when Annot turned to see who had befriended her, he was out of sight. Her pretty face, alternately pale and flushed witti fear, was apt to win more so, summoning resolution', she approach* ed one of the more quiet of the hack- men who thronged the place, and"asked him in alow, faltering voice, if he could take her to some good boarding place, where she could stay for a few-days, anal riot be questioned. He looked at the lady before him— for such he decided her to bo, in his own mind—and then said " yes." After she had entered, the carriage, and had replied to his question as to whether she had any baggage, he said: " If you havn't any choice as to a boarding 'place, I've a good old aunt, who sometimes takes a lodger or two. You see, I wouldn't want to be recommending any of these other places.; not! but that they may be decent enough, but, then, I don't knowi" Annot thanked him in her heart, but said simply that she ..'would -go-to his aunt's. He jumped up to his seat, and drove rapidly away, stopping, at length, before a small, neat cottage, on a quiet narrow street, where he rang the bell. The door was opened almost instantly by a pleasant-faced little woman, holding a light in her hand; who' ex-| claimed S " Well you're home quick to-night, lad, and I'm glad of it, for supper is' smoking hot; but"—seeing Annot for the first time—" who is th'is."- i She peered at her curiously through her spectacles, as the " lad" of six feet, answered her: A lady, auntie, who wants your nice little front room'for a few days." **iV] "Oh, come right in, then, and you shall have it, and some supper, too, for you look tared out. Have you come far 1" " No," Aanol *eplied faintly; " but I was sick a fortnight ago, and I do not feel as strong.as I did this morning." " I guess, not; for tryou didn't feel better then, y.our folks surely would not have let you come away from home" said the old- lady, bringing tears from poor Annot's eyes again, at the thought of the home she had\eft. She -hustled about until "she had untied. Annot's bonnet, and removed, jt, and was about to unfasten her cloak, when Annot bethought her of the gay dress underneath, and shrank back, saying she would rather go right up to her room.- 44 Well, so you shall, and have your- supper up there too." ' She followed the old lady up the stairs and into the neat) cheerful front room, "where everything looked as if ■giving her welcome. But Annot little heeded the objects around her, for she felt as if she were choking. She-husti-' ly undid her oloak, and letting-it fall j from her bare shoulders, sank fainting, to the floor. "Mercy on mel" exclaimed good Mrs. Bradden, "what could have' brought-her away from home in such disguise ?" As there seemed no probability of her wonder being satisfied by the pale woman lying before her, she threwopen the window, and then as the fresh air failed to revive her, she called at the stair-top for Ned and told him to hurry for a doctor, for the lady was dying. She was not so near the dark-river, though asr Mrs. Bradden had feared, and when Ned. who had needed no second bidding, came back fifteen minutes later, with a grey haired tender -old man whom he introduced as Dr. Gtroy Annot was just opening her..eyes. He looked with calm pitying eyes at the young creature lying there almost unconscious, and then said, after feeling of her pulse and looking at hor. again. " She is not dying ma'am, but she is very ilL/ I fear she has brain fever-. Can she have good care here ?" ■*}'« " As gbdd'-'a* if she were my own," |said -the kind hearted, old lady,, who had taken a fancy at first to Annot's fair faoe.
