It was a modest, lowly cottage wherein resided Mrs. Hastings and her two daugh ters. It was a low though neat and comfort able room in which the younger ccw lay on her efoith b and. Pure and spotless as wrfc ti e simple bed elothos,'they tvero not more so than the heart of MaryHastsng». No evil therein ever found a home. Well had its. portals been guarded, and if, perchance, evil thoughts came, as come they will to all, ttlcy had not been encouraged to enter and thare-; in nbidw. This day eighteen ydars age, life fir§V dawned upon her pathway ; and this Very birth day was to have been her bridal one. Ab, more the bride of heaven looks she new than for ope of eaith. O God 1 spare her yet a little while. “Mother?” called aswoet low voice. In a moment the mother stood beside her’ softly parting tbe hair from the broad, pale biow that she had so often kissod in infancy and childbcod. “What, my child ?’’ The mother’s voice-trembled as she spoke. ‘ Theto was a heart quiver in it, as though the souice w(to t vet flawing with tffars. ‘■Do not laugh at me, mother dear, when I tell you my test night’s dream. I had lain quietly thinking of E Iward, and of this that was to be ear bridal day. I yearned oh, so ardently to see him but once agaiD, only mo'her, that I might receive his parting kiss and hin lust I'endly spoken ‘Good-bye.’ Atl at ouee a strange scn a atieii came over inc. I felt as strong tsever; and, mother, surely as I now speak to you, I heard his voice di t'ncily say ing in the dear ohi tone 1 loVrcd so weft, Mary, to-morrow is our bridal day. I come ck, i omue l’*r my long-promised treasure ! The voice died away in a sweet bw oidenoe. 4 -Sny, mother, do uot weep.

Sum moning Lizzie, they again entered the in val.filerovui. She had balded herself in bed, ami wus b' »y aurauging her long, fair, glossy eu I-, of la e so inneh neglected. “aee,Lizzie,’’ she exciaimed, running her tapering huger.-, slowly through them, “seu how tangled and disordered they are, thoso curls be loved so well.

She kaew jitf health had failed:. She knew she , cool 1 uot skip and caioj about the old home : s-ead as of yprt, but she ew.ly called it a troublix tine ‘cold and eougb.” Thus though' ' and thus wrote she to Edward. Love is , ever ready to think the bestir fear the worst, j At first he b’t.canre uLrued, but by de grees, finding sLe wis improving, he took c urzgo anil was as hopeful as ever she could wish. The time of his roturn drew near,! the weding day was fixed aud all necsssary preparation completed. So long as the cx- eitciuent of fitting and arraugiug lasted, so , long a Hcemiug sirongth was vouehsatod the invalid. Jjujt her physician and friends fear ed tbe result. . > , T»Ojt)’olatk.drew yet no K Iward came. Siiil Mary’s hope failed uut. ISho j know he would oeine. Aud lie did eojno | When ityot wanted a few minutes of tho hour, Uc drove anxiously and nervously to the doer. He had been told at the. fillaao hotel, that Mary was billing, that she eouid not continue long on earth. Calmly and quietly Mary received him His coming had not taken her by surprise. With him it was otherwise. He, was not prepared for so tnuoh ohaugo in the beloved one. It was she who was tho stronger now. And the firm heart and the manly frame leaned upon that .emaciated one for strength and consolation. | Ob what will not love do—a pure unsolf. i ish love such as some can feel? With that in tho heart there, aro ou trials, no troubles, no privations iu life, for it can make of (hem all blessings, sweetened and sanctifi.d. Without it I would,not take the monarch’s crown or victor’s wreath. Edward Graham and Mary Hasting) were both children of poor theugh rospeot.ahle aud intelligent parents. Edward had been one of (he first to turn his feet towards the “gold regions.” He would come hems rich that Mary might be surrounded with all h r heart and mind desired. What a pleasant home should tie theirs on fbo borders of the dear old Merrimau, H»w patiently and how earnestly he. toiled, till the three years wero ended. Ileyond even, bis meet san guine! hppes had he been suooessful, an 1 now he a wealthy man But ala , tor the hf jirt treasure awaiting him at home! “Mary, Mary!” was all tho haart-strickqp man could utter in his great agony, “Dear,dear Edward,” and she was clasped to the' he jyt she so yearned in meet. I, ng and closely K hel 1 her there. How his heart throfebod with its deep treasur ed aud unspeakahle love! For a time neither .' TLo* inowents were too sacred tor words But the recording angels 'irea-ured iheui abovo, that they might be renewed in heaven, evcn’frged from tlw pangs of tlje psr tinsr. .Mary was the first to speak. “I knew, Edward, that you woyld eome to day. I met you id my lust night*s waking dream—met you as we have mct.tjow in re. ality, I bless God for the tour and its per fect joy! Few such oould we have and live. They are o<ft for earth ; but of heiven, be loved, in heaven, they will be ours forever! “Da not leave me, Mary, oh, do not leave mo!’’ burst involuutarily from his lips. with a cal a, quiet smilo, such as angels might wear, she raised her head from bu> breast, putting back the hair from Lis damp, sold brow where stiff.lingsut enthroned,gnas od long and tenderly upon the beloved- It almost ecemed sis though her spirit entered his. The expression of intense suffetiog passed from his face, aud a pleasant though saddened rmi’o came instead. “But, Edward, I do not leave you ; I only go before: "and tbe voioe (hough weal; und' low was clear and free from trembling. ••Can you not wait, beloved ?
