"Amos," she says, "is it true that you do not love me?" I know by that question that her mother has been working against me secretly. But out of regard for Mabel's peace of mind at home, I repress the hot words that are rushing to my tongue. I answer simply that I love her devotedly, and that I would pour out my heart's blood In her service.

Then Mabel tells her mother—before my face, bless her! she tells her—that there's no man in the world she loves like me, and that she has given her word, and means to abide by it.

She'll be a sailor's wife, as you were, mammy." Does my old mother's face reflect the joy that shines on mine, or is there a cloud of doubt on it? Doubt of what? As to whether I have done right? Away with it! I will have no doubts or shadows. There is no room for them in the sunshine of my life. "Why, mother!" I exclaim. "I cannot tell whether you are pleased or not at the news. "I hope you have acted wisely, my son," she replies, her lips trembling slightly. I snap my fingers at the word. Wisely! What lover ever thought of that when he was opening his heart to the girl of his choice? And, after all, is not love the best kind of wisdom? But I can scarcely understand my old mother speaking in this way, and it does not satisfy me. "You married for love, mother; why should not Mabel do the same? Come, come; it would hurt me much to think you begrudged me my happiness." "Oh, Amos," she cries. "With all my heart and soul I wish you to be happy." "Well, then," I reply, repeating words that have been used before, "there is no happiness without love, and Mabel and I love each other true, as you and my father did. Don't tell me you doubt Mabel any longer. You may have had reason for it before, because of peo- pie's foolish tongues; but, now that aslceu. she has proved herself better than gold you have no right to suspect her. She'll be a loving daughter to you, and you miiBt be to her as good a mother as you have been to me, There! there!" ! For the good old soul had suddenly thrown her arms around my neck, and begs my forgiveness if she has hurt we in any way. She believes, she says, that Mabel is exactly as I have painted her, and she sobs out blessings upon both of us, So the little cloud blows over, ; But shadows come from Mabel's pother, With a full-blooded face she says: "You can never mean it, Mr. Beecroft," "I can, and do," I-answer readily; "and so does Mabel." "Mabel is eighteen years of age," she says; "and you?" ' "And I—well, I am over forty." i hang my head ruefully- She peers at me with malicious ju- ciulsltiveness. "Have you told her that?" "No; it didn't come into my head to jflo so." "Of course it didn't. And that is the AVfiy you take advantage of a child— Von, a fulitgrown man, with a beard '" soon be white; knowing, too, that ) was as good as married to a man will be able to support her, and a lady of her." . "No map can do that; she is one already." *"Nwnk & t.06S of . * J T i— • , T- - i* -'I do, heartily, over. Well, I am a little disturbed at the difference in our ages, which I never thought of before Mabel's mother spoke of it. Truly, I am old enough to be her father, though as for my hair getting white, that's a fable—there isn't a gray hair in my head. Still, the twenty and odd years between me and her are like twenty and odd little imps mocking and pricking me. How I should like to poison some of them, and bury thorn out of all knowledge! Meeting Mr. Druce at this point of my nusings, he looks at me as though he vould be glad of the opportunity of dlling not only my twenty and odd years, but all my other years as well. ; am too happy to return his scowl, and he makes an angry motion and passes on. Mabel was standing at the door, catch a glimpse of the mild and genial trembling in every limb, and I went to side of Paul's nature. It seems that he her side and passed my arm around had a friend who was a barrister by profession. His name was Zenns, and he wanted to see him. Perhaps he had formed the acquaintance of this lawyer in the court-room. Perhaps, sometimes, when he wanted to ask some question in regard to Roman law, he went to this Zenas, the lawyer. At any rate, he had a warm attachment for the man, and he provides for his comfortable escort and entertainment CHAPTER VI. T wanted not a week to Christmas, and in another week from that time should be bidding my Mabel farewell It was my lot now to experience the pain that gives joy Hitherto I had lef for my duties will a light and willing spirit: now my heart was charged will sadness at the thought of leaving m darling girl. I cannot tell you how I loved her—I cannot tell you what she was to me. She was more than my life—she was my soul. In all the world there was hut one star for me—Mabel. Through the light of her love the fair earth became fairer, and the gloomiest day was filled with sunshine. It happened at this time that Mabel's- mother was summoned suddenly from her home. An only sister, who had lived a hundred miles away, was dying and called her to her bedside. The summons was so sudden that I did not aee her before she left. Going in the morning to Mabel's house, I found her alone, and she told me how her mother had been compelled to go almost at a moment's notice. Did she leave a message for me; I her waist. , He stood before us in silence for full ten seconds; then, with a wicked look, slunk away. "I'll not risk your being insulted again by that scoundrel,", I said to Mabel. "While your mother is absent ou must sleep at our house. It will )e safer for you." But her woman's sense saw in this roposal what had not occurred to me. 'I can't do that, Amos, until —un- il " "Until what, my darling?" Bright blushes drove the lilies from ler cheek. Then I guessed what was n her mind. 'Come with me," I said. "I have something to say to you before my mother." She locked the door and came with me. 'Mother," I said, "it isn't safe for Mabel to sleep in her own place alone; she has come to stop with me." My mother nodded. "I shall-sleep there instead of her," I continued, "and Mabel will take my room here for a day or two." "And then, Amos?" said my mother guessing that I hail something more to say. "And then, mother," I rejoined, "Mabel and 1 will get married. There Is no occasion for any one to know but ourselves. On the day before Christinas we will go to the registrar's, and this Christmas shall be the happiest we three have ever spent." I saw in Mabel's joyful, blushing face assent to my daring. It took my mother's breath away for a moment, however. (TO BB COXTtSUED. I A NEW GHOST STORY. as he writes to Titus: "Bring Zenas the lawyer." This man of my text belonged to a profession in which are many ardent supporters of Christ and the Gospel Among them, Blackstone, the great commentator on English law; and Wilberforce, the emancipator; and the late Benjamin F.

Recently Dr. Wynne, the Protestant Episcopal bishop of Kll- laloe, and his wife died suddenly on the same day, says the New York Journal. On the afternoon of this day a lady walking In one of the suburbs of Dublin met a clergyman, whom she supposed to be the bishop, and inquired for Mrs. Wynne. "She," was the reply, "is dead, and," after a pause, "the bishop, too, is dead.' The lady was you u 1 daughter, but I was not the niano question Mabel concerning it. I «ould not inflict that pain upon my B»«. Now, how U came into my maul or it there, it is beyond me to quite overcome and on recovering herself found that the clergyman, whom she still believed to be the bishop, had vanished. She immediately went and explained the mysterious occurrence to a well-known Irish Protestant dignitary, who is a firm believer in supernatural appearances. He said there was no doubt that she had been accorded an interview with the spirit ot the departed bishop. The story was extensively circulated in Dublin society, and was told to a clergyman when visiting the family of a well-known -judge. "Why," said the astonished cleric, "I .am the bishop's ghost. A lady whom I did not know oame up to me and asked me how Mrs. Wynne was, I said she was dead and that the bishop was also dead, The lady naturally seemed greatly dis the more stronger my half of elevated morals, closed his speech in the midst of the,most august assemblage ever gathered in Westminster Hall, by saying: "I impeach Warren Hastings in the name of the house of commons, whose national character he has dishonored'; I impeach him in the name of the people of India, whose rights and liberties he has 'subverted; I impeach him in the name of human nature, which he has disgraced; in the name of both sexes, and of every rank, and of every station, and of every situation in the world, I impeach Warren Hastings," ' • • » No other profession more needs the grace of Gojj to deliver them, in their temptations, to comfort them in their trials, to sustain them in the discharge of their duty.

There wus 'bout fifty of us started together, but didn't agree very well, so ten of. us sep'rated frum th' rest, an' run a exper- dltlon of our own.
