The speaker was one ofiwo young
men, wlw had come up to the inottn
tains, on a pedestrian and sketching ex
pedition, from Philadelphia, As he
spoke, he laid bis hand oil his compa
Thtipersoa tie addreteed, looked and
saw a little girl, about ten years (JJ,
advancing along en old blackberry
path. Rhe was brown as a berry, from
expoanre to the sun, and her feet and
arm were bare; but there wnt a grace
about her, as she eatne (ripping for
ward, thai a princess might have en
Tied, Just la front of her, a spider had
spun his trap across Ihe pa'h, and, ns
the young man spoke, he slightly
stooped her h?ad, and raising her
bands, pushed the cobwebs aBide. It
was this artless, natural movement,
which completed the picture. '

who had spoken.
What! love nt first sight?" pnswer-
ea his companion, uuguing. iu
thitik of the fastidious Clarence losing
his heart to a sunburnt fairy. You
are eighteen, and she about ten oh!
you ciin afford to wait "
. . . fj
his conversation uaa oeen carrisa
on in -whispers. The child, still ad
vancing, had, by tins lime, come oppo
site to the two young men. i)a seeing
them, she stopped, and stared curious
ly at them, aa a young deer, that hai
never been huued, may ue suppose-i
to stop and regard ihe first stranger
that enters tlie forest. Her bright
speaking face, as she thus stood, grace
fully arrested, was not less beautiful-
in us way, man ner nine ngurc,
-My dear," said the Ust speaker
"would tou like to be rande into a pic-
lure? My friend here is a painter, and
will give you a dollar, if you will let
hint sketch you."
The child looked from the speaker
to his friend. Something, in the latter's
face, seemed to restore the natural
confidence, which the free-and easy
air - of the other had for the moment,
shaken. She drew coyly up to him as
if for protection.
"1 bare read of pictures," eaid she.
grting up into his lace, "but I nctcr
saw one. Js u a real picture oi me
you will make?"
The artless, appealing manner of the
child went to the young man'a heart.
He would as eoon hare joined in ban
tering her as in bantering a sister. He
took ner hand, as he replied, 'I will
make rs good a picture of you as I can
if you will let me. A picture like one
of these." -
And he opened his portfolio, which
contnined various sketches, i
"Oh! how beautifuU" cried the child.
It was evident that a new world was
opened to her. She gased breathless
ly, at sketch after sketch, till the last
had been examined, and then heaved
a deep sigh.
"1'lease sir," she said, timidly, at
last, '-will you give me my picture
when you have painted u?"
"rto. interposed me otner young
man, ' b t we win give you a dollar."
She turned on the speaker, M L'o the
hand she had been holJing, and drew
hersolf up with sudden haughtiness.
"I don t want your dollar," she said
wi'h proud delicacy. ,
bhe was tuininsr to escape, when the
artist recovering her hand, said, sooth.
"flever mind him, my ceur. . iwin
paint two pictures, ani give you one.
Uome wul that doT '
Reassured, the child took the posi
tion indicated to her, and Clarence
Hurvard, for that was the young ait
isi's name, began rapidly painting.
Before noon, two hasty sketches, In

There,'' be eaid drawing a long
breath, "you have been as, quiet u$ a

he handed her the sketch, 'nd may

him who cave' it o you." : - .
VThat I will, all my life long' art

ly on her new possession, with an en
tbusiasm, partly born of the artist-soul
within her, nnd partly the result, of a
child's pride in what is iu own especial
property, .. .r ., fc .. .,

Nothing more was sai I, for at thnl
moment, a dinner horn sounded, nnd
the vounar men roso to return to the
road side inn, where they had stopped
the night Wore. Their lime w.ts lim
i'ed.' and lhal evening, knapsack on
back; they were miles away from the
scene of the niorntDf. A week l ter
they were both home in tho city, CI a
rence Lard at work perfecting himself
in art, and his companion delving at
Coke and Uuckstone.
'. Years passed. Clarence Harvard
had risen to be an artist of eminence.,
His pictures were the fjjhi n: he was
the fashion himself, Occasionftlly, ns
he turned over Lis oldr sketches, lie
would, come upon Cobwebs,", as hit
was accustomed, laughingly, to call
the sketch of the child; nnl then for a
moment, ho would wonder what had
become of the original; but, except on
these rare occasions, he never even
thought of her.
. Kut sj with the child herself. Kel
lie Bray was a poor orphan, the daugh
ter of a poor gentleman, who, after her
father's death, had bet n adopted by a
maternal uncle, living o: a wild, up.
land farm among the Alleghanies.
Her childhood, from her earliest re
collection, had been spent amid the
drudgery of a farm. This rude, but
free life had given her the springy Btep
aud ruddy cheek, which had attracted
the young artist's attention, but it had
failed to satisfy the higher aspirations
oi her nature, aspirations wnich lud
been burn in her blood, and which came
of generations of antecedent culture.
, The firt occasion on which these
higher impulses had found congenial
food was when she had met the young
aitist. She carried her sketch home,
and w ould never part with it. His re
fined, intellectual face haunted all her
day dream j From that hour a new
element entered into her life; she be
came conscious that there were other
people, beside the dull, plodding ones
with whom her lot had been cast; she
aspired lo rise to-tfee-level of such; all
her leisure hours were spent in study
ing: gradually, throuzh her influence,
her uncle's household grew more or
less refined; and finally, her uncle him
self becaae bwbitiou for Nelly, and
as he had no children, consented, at
hia wife's vntrtaty, to send the young
girl to a first class boarding school. ,
At eighteen the. bare footed rustic,
whom the young nriht had sketched,
had dawned ift . a beautiful and ac
compli he J woman, who afier having
carried off the highest prizes at school,
was the l.elle of the oounJy town, near
which her uncle's possessions lay.
That unolo had betn growing rich, like1
most prudent farmers, partly from the
rise in vJua of laud s, utid partly from
the Judkioui inwtmenl oT l i ..sa
vings. . But in spite of l.er many suitors,
Nelly had i.ever yet seen a face, that
appeared to her h lf s. handsome as
the niHn'y ono of the young artist,
whose kind, peptic words and manner,
eight years be ' ore, had lived in btr
memory ever since. Oiten after a
brilllnnt company, where alio had been
qiiecn of the evening, she found her
self wondering, in her chamber, if she
should ever see that, face, again! ,'. ' ' ,
''Are you 'going to the ball, next
week?" Bidd vne . of Nellie's frit nda to
her.1 They say . it ia to be the most
splendid affair we have ever had.! My

J so that they had given a verdict with
out leaving the box. Ihe young law
yer at that b .ll. was like a hero fresh
from the battle-titld. A hundred f.iir
eyes followed hii form, a hundred fair
bo'oras beatquicker as he approached.
Bui he saw only otie'iu nil that bril
liant assembly and it was Nelly. Her
graceful form, her intelligent face, her
style and beau y, nrrestcd him, the
nn meat he entered; he saw. that she
had no peer in the room; and he devo
ted himself to her, almost exclusively,
throughout the evening.
Nor iiad Nelly ever shone bo brilliant
ly. She coul.l not bat feel that it win
a great compliment, to be thus singled
out from umong so many, j But she
had another motive for t-xerttng her
self to shine. At the very first glance,
she recognized, in Mr. Mowbray, the
companion of the artist who had sketch
ed her eight years back, ia hopes
to hear something of his friend,, she
turned the conversation upon art, the
city, childhood, a:d every; bing else
'hat she thought might be suggestive;
but in vain. She could not bo more
definite, bec3U3e she wished to conceal
her own identity, for it was evident
M. Mowbray did not know her; be
sides her natural delicacy shrank from
inquiring abou a perfect stranger.
The next day, as soon as etiquette
allowed, Mr, Mowbray was seen dri
ving up to the farm. Nellv appeared,
beautifully attired in a neat morning
diets, and looking so fresh and spark
ling, in spite of the late hour! of the
night befcre, that it eou!d hardly be
conbideied fltttery, when her visi'or
assured her that she looked lovelier
(ban her loveliest rose.
. Mr Mowbray was full of 'egrets nt
the cruel fate, which be said, compel
led him to return to the city. .He
could not conceal his joy, when Nelly's
aunt, inadvertently, and to Nelly's se
cret annoyance, let out the fact, that,
in the Tall, JNelly was to pay a vis;t to
au old school-mate in l mijueipnia,
Miss Maiy Stanley
"Ah' indeed,' cried the visitor, and
his face flushed with pleasure. 1 am
so delighted. I have the honor to
know Miss Stanley. You will be quits
at home in her set," he added, bowing
to Nelly, ''for it is, by common con
sent, the most cultivated in the city.
Nelly bowed coldly. Her old di-
truct in the speaker had revived again
Through all the polish ot Ins imn-
ner, sue recognized me tame sneering
spirit, which believed in nothing true
or good, from which Bhe had shrunk
instinctively when a child. During the
interview, she was civil, but no more.
She eould not, h wever, avoid being
beautiful; and so Mr Mowbray went
away, more in love than ever.
A few months later found JNelly do
miciled, for the winter, in Philadel
phia. Hardly had she changed her
travelling dress, when her friend came
into her chamber.
I want you to look your prettiest,
to night," said Miss Stanley, 'for I
expect a crowd of beaux, nnd, among
them, Mr Mowbray, the eloquent
rounif lawyer, and Mr. Harvard. . The
former claims to, have met you, and
raves everywhere of your beauty. The
titer, who is the great nrtist. and very
critical, laughs at his friend's enthu
siasm, and says he d bet you re only
common rustic, with cheeks like peo
nies. So I wish you to convert the
"Only a common rus ic," sntd Nel-,
ly to herself, haughtily, - she. resolved
to be as beautiful A3 possible. Per
haps too, there war a half-formed re
solve to. bring the offender at her feet,
in revenge'.' '' ' ""
A great surprise . awaited her,
When she entered the drawing room
that evening, J he firsj stranger; she
saw was the identical Ciarenoe. who
had painted her as a bare toted li-tie
girl; nnd then, for the first time, it
fished upon her that tM was ihe great
ar list who had spoken so coniempiuuti v
ly of her charms. ' Her notion proved
correct, for Miss Stanley, immediately
advancing, presented the Btrangcd to
her as Mr. Harvard. , A plane into
bis face reassured Nelly of his identi
ty, and that he had not rt-oognized Jier;
ant then the 'turned awayvfter 'a

She first dashed off some brilliant

It was her favorite hlao, and her. ' !

From this, or sotas other causey she j - ' i ,
sang the words, m even she kd UttK j ' f .
er sung them before; .and, when she ' ;
finished, her eves were full of team.T ".'
She would have given much to navc5
seen Clarence's face, but she could nct$
trust herself to look up; and pir ly U.
conceal her emotion, partly by a Bud-4
den imp&lse, she struck iata the 'tnisf
rare of "II Trovatore." Nolwdy therei
had ever before realized the full trage
dy of (hat sa'ddest, yet most beautiful
dirge. Even the sellish heart of.Mr-f
Mowbray was affected. When the last,
chord had died away, he was the first,
to speak, end was profuse ia thanks. '
: But Clarence said nothing. Nelly,,
at last looking toward him, saw (hat'
his ever had been dim as well as hcrl
own." She felt that hia silence was liter
moat eloqumt . of compliments, and-,
from that hour forgive htm having c 1
led her a "common rustic," ? . . 1

she was far from feeling. Occasionally ;
however, Clarence would insert his

Stauley'i guest, snd at such times, hia j
eloquent talk soon eclipsed that of even,
the brilliant advocate. AJtf e'7 t!i&.(
in her secret heart, it was Rukin'a,
gainst Voltaire. And the more CI j
rence engaged in these conversations. ;
the more he felt, thut, for the firsts
time in his life, he had met one who
understood hica. I ,'..
One morning, the footman earae.iiji '.
