Asa friend I shall respect and esteem you ; but *1 cannot be your wife. Have compassion j on me and do not press me further.” ! Mary Granville stood before me as she spoke xv th her hands clasped and her [ head bowed, trembling like an aspen and j as I fancied, there were tears pi her, trite was a beautiful girl and I had: thought her as good and pure as she 1 xvus beautiful, and further, than this, li had believed that she loved me. Ahe was an orphan and had been en gaged during the past year in teaching | one of our village sehools- Ofher early life, I knew nothing save! tiiat she had been educated and moved in good society ; and 1 had reason to bo-I lieve that at some time her parents had been wealthy but her father had failed in business, and it had been told to me that the sail reverse killed him. 1 had known that Mary was poor—tiiat she had de l-ended on her daily labor for support and the thought that 1 could oiler her a com fortable home, with dm advantage < fmod crate wealth-had given increase to my prospective happiness. lint tliis unexpected ansxvor dashed all my bright hopes to the ground. “Do you mean,” 1 cried vehemently, “Tiiat you dismiss? Am I Cast oil'?” “1 cannot be your wife,” xvas the rc l'lv. , “ 1 lien," s lid 1 with more warmth than 1 might have betrayed under other cir cumstances. “1 leave you to yourself, and while i try to shake nil’ he love that ! has bound me to jam, I xvill only hope I that ere yon lead another into your net you xx i!I conclude beforehand xvhether j you will keep him She looked, into my face with a painful [ frightened glance, but 1 did not stop to i hear her speak further. 1 turned and left, the house 1 remarked that under other cirenm | stances 1 might, have been more cool and ! collected .in my speech; and wlpit do you I j suppose dear renders, the attending cir- I cumsfancos wen •? j [’ll tell you candidly. j 1 was a" little Tii■ate’d with wine; 1 had j drank just enough to xvarm my blood ; ami give m.v brain an extra impulse, and jmy words xvi r.x not chosen, as 1 should i have chosen them had the Spirit of wine : been absent. As ] walked toxvards ryy home T sought : to pniMiade myself that I had uiifortu j ilately escaped tlie snare of a coquette, I and that I might be the better enabled | thus to reason, 1 stopped at iho hotel where I found a few of my companions,' ; and helped to dispose of half a dozen bol ! lies' of xvine. ] On the following morning \ awokewith : the headache and when I called to mind j the events of tho proceeding evening, I xvas anything but happy I began to realize how much I had lov ed Mary Granville. There was an aeli j ing x-oiiLin my heart, and 1 wept as I i conteni|imted my loss. It xvas my first love, and its iiillinmco had penetrated ! every lihro of my being. The beautiful girl lord become more dear to me than 1 ; could tell, and I groaned in bitter anguish when 1 thought that she xvas lost to me : forever. ; J reso’ved that I should feel very angry ' and indignant but when the sweet lace } xvas called upon to mental view such I feeling melted axvay leaving me sad and I desolate. ; On he folloxving Babbatli 1 attended 'church where I saxv Mnry once more.- She played the organ as she h id done tile , past year and as her lingers sxvept ov-r ' ; the keys 1 fancied that l could delect a 1 tremiilourness which 1 had never noticed j 'before Was it imagination, or xvas u-j really a plaiiitivne.'-.s-- a sadness iu ex : pres-iou of her music. I To me it seemed at times as though; I’the organ moaned and xvept. It xvas I like Hie wailing: of the daughters of Zion j by the rivers of Babylon. When the services xx-ere over, and xvc [ went out of the church, 1 saxv Mary’s j face. It was pale and wan; as though! she had been sick. W hat could it be Was she sull’erim; as 1 bad snfleral ? i The thought Ba-lied upon me that some one had told something to my disadvan tage. 1 had enemies xvlm envied me be cause I had inherited some wealth—and I fancied enemies xvho envied me the love of Mary < Jranville. Another week pajsed and I became n: ire and inure sad and lonesome. My bimine was irksome to me, and my 1 books and papers afforded me no respite. In fact 1 could not read, for my mind xvas i never on the page before me. Another, •Sabbath at church and I saw Mary again /lie was paler than before, and her eyes look-d as though she had been xveepiug. I ■ Bari l g the succeeding week I receiv -1 a visit from ftiy college churn, Jack 1 Stanton who had just opened u law office at Bfrryviiie.
