as they .ithered fresli handfuls of snow
that lay in a mass by the granite wall.
"Why, you said there were seven falls,
Ixdlard, but 1 can only see three, said
I Melvorno.
j "To see the seven we must climb out of

"T'ne eve can hardly crasp the Tast

sandstones at the top of the mountains
make the dim Huht down here seem dark

coiiimenced to nscend the wild, rocky
cm v.- to m-t a view of the upper falls.
The ladles w ere very glad now of the aid
of our outstretched hands to help balance
them from one shelving rock, tree or fal
len loi to another. At last we reached the
point we sou-lit and were repaid by seeing
the seven falls of the little, river with ita
foam and roar, as it leaps tn nuick succes
sion Into the depths below.
"If we could imaaine some Ivy covered
towers made Immortal by leiieiidory loro,
this would excel In beauty the fastnesses
of the Alps," said Iiudy Irving.
"When I become an authoress I wIU
make this the place from which to send
forth thrilling tales of wild Indian maidens
stid their brave warrior chiefs," said Stel
la, her cheeks glowing from the vigorous
exercise and her eyes sparkling with Joy-
ous animation.
"This place will sometime echo with the
Imagination of a Homer, a Hyron, or a
Scolt," said Melvorne. "It is the very
home of romance and poetry!"
Our guide followed us with a dainty
lunch, of which every weary traveler
knows the value. Seated on a trunk of
fallen tree beside a cool stream In a shady
nook we soon emptied the basket and were
ready for the descent into the ennyou.
Weary but delighted we readied the
Tiillev and returned to our hotel. Not

The trail up the mountains was frequent
ly rough and steep. Sometimes we had to
stop and let our horses breathe lie fore
mounting the steepest places. But we
were In no hurry. The scenery was en
chanting. Constant surprises burst upon
ns as we reached on height after another.
Yet tho longed for peak was always Just a
little beyond lika the famous pot of gold at
the end of the rainbow.
We reached the seven lakes nnd had our
lunch. The lakes arc picturesque, as
such sheets of water are apt to be among
tho mountains. While we were resting a
party of twelve or more passed us coming
down. Some of them wore the most hag
gard expressions. One, lady of the party
said to I July Irving, O madam, take my
advice and go down. It is a deadly place
up there. If 1 ever reach the hotel I will
never tempt Providence again by starting
out on another excursion."
Judging from the expression of her
countenance It must have, been a trying
ordeal for her.
We were not going back. We were
bound for the summit and if sea sickness
or rather sky sickness came with the view
we were prepared for that also. V had

stood on tho snow-chid summit of the
mountain and viewed the great world that
Iny beneath us, gladdening Into life under
the rays of the rising sun.
"It seems almost a vision of Unulah

fcrlL'ht above with its tints of red and gold
leuded with the heavenly blue; the earth
ao gruen below mingled with the tinU cf
sed and brown of the rocks and cliffs 'ti
Sie mountains!"
"Here we all see the colors that St. John
aaw in his vision of the New Jerusalem
from the red Jmsper, typifying human pas
sion, through all the colors to the sapphire
purity of heaven!" said Stella, reverently.
"Where does tho real cease and the Ideal
begin? What can be more real than this
vaat rocky fragment that crowns the sum
mit of the peak?" said Melvirne. "i'et
who ever thinks of broken rock or chilling
air when enjoying a scene like thlsf"
"The imagination Is the reader here.
Sold fwst the granite rock aud nil becomes
sute and near sighted," I said, picking
ap a pieco that lay at my feet. "Hut let it
and all the rest of this grand sight bo lit
with Imagination and we feel that It Is but
a symbol of something grander and nobler
bun the mind can conceive."
"You little fuiry star of mountain wild,"
aid Stella, as she gathered Borne of the
delicate white flowers that grow where
rer the granite rock has crumbled enough
tr cover their tiny rootleU. "Tell me the
aecretof yourlifel"
"I will tell you IU secret," I said. "It U
doing what it can; It brings one link of
Hving nature to this bare, bleak and deso
late mountain top, as you, my fairy star,
rought a link of life and love to the bleak
Id bouse at Waverland. And as that
Mny ftower can charm us with lis beauty
and hold us prisoners by iu fragrance, so
you charmed me Into an active thinking
van and held my heart a prisoner by the
purity and purpose of your life. Hut come,
my darling, I see you shiver. You must
not stay longer lu this keen winter air."
When we reached the house we found
the rest of the party there thawing their
benumbed fingers, and drinking a cup of
fragrant coffee, made, by the signal ofllrer
who seasoned his hospitality with thrilling
tales of former visitors, which mitdo the
party roar with laughter till the rafters re
echoed our glee

"Well colfee is a luxury," said lollard,
taking his second or third cup. "And the

"Don't iihk me that, aa though I never

away In seeming disgust.
With a htst lingering look we left tho

never be forgotten. The grandeur of the

tnuples, and finding one of those dainty
rustic seats mudu ju-it for two, I drew Stel
la to my side, saying:
'Now for the story you promised me
when I first found you, darling. You can
not tell how huppy I h ive been since then.
The world seems full of new beauty. Even
rocks and glens have a laimnage of love.
It seems oh though some fairy hud wroaght
a magic spell over my life, until I almost
fear that I shall wake and llnd It all u pass

your happiness by my own. I have been
so free, so happyl no longing for the for

my story?"
"Wheu you were a child; rcmemlsr I
know nothing of your llfu except Wio few
months at Waverland."
"Well, then, we will begin In the usual
style. Once upon a time there was a Utile
girl," she begun in a theatrical tone. Then
sober thought came, and sho continued,
"I was the only child of an English clergy
man. We had a beautiful home while my
dear mother lived. Hut when I was about
ten years old she died. From that time my
father seemed to think he must be every
thing to me. He devoted what time he
could spare to my studies. When he waa
preparing his sermons he would assign ma
to some task, and as soon as the lesson
was learned would hear me recite. Then
be would talk with me about It until It be
came a part of myself. He was passion
ately fond of music. Under his patient In
struction I learned to play oil the piano,
and on tlio organ in church for him. With
pencil and brush ho was good, but never
could satisfy himself. He always Insisted
that my fingers were more deft than his,
aud encouraged me to copy sotno object
and pictures as I fancied. Wo had but one
servant and I always helped her with the
housework. My father said that he wanted
me to bo a woman and not a toy with
merely a few act ipllshments. One morn
ing when I was helping tliiihousol;i-cvrn
usual, sho Kild; 'Your father bin s'. range
notions for an I'Mglish nobleman. I waa
surprised, cud said: 'My father Is only a
clergyman. ' Hut she declared t',.at ho waa
tho son of an F.nglish earl, and that c
cause he married my dear mother his
father had disowned him. I wanted to ask
tny father about It but sho forbade me.

found him asleep, as I thought. Ho hfti; ,

about very quietly, fearing to disturb hi -slumbers.
As I came near his choir some

when I opened my eyes, I was In my owu
room. The old nurse and a doctor were
standing over me. I asked for my father.
The nurse tried to calm me. Hut I kept
asking for him until tho doctor fuld that
he was dead. Again there was a blank.
For weeks I Iny in a semi-conscious stato.
Tho nurse, (who was our old housekeeper
and my only friend,) watched and tended

them for what they would bring and paid

Here Stella paused as though dreading
to continue her sod story.
"My precious darling, how long was that
before you came to Waverland.'" I asked,
bringing ber nearer to mo and pressing a
loving kiss on her tunocetit lips.
"Futher diod about three months before
