Of all the splendors and luxuries of
their old home nothing remained to the
orphah* but the beautiful china vase of
pot-pourri of which Arthur and Mabel
had gathered the roses that summer
when they were betrothed.
That was almost three years ago,
now, and to-night, as the wild winter
winds shrieked tlinragh the leafless
trees, and the blinding snow whirled
along the lonely streets, little Blossom
stirred the rose leaves In the old china
jar, and with the summery gust of
spicy perfume, old memories rose to
flood tide In Mabel's tortured heart,
a a • a • •
Where was Arthur now w hen his beau-
tiful young love was so lonely and
friendless In the crucl world, her slight
form too thinly clad for the wintry
oold. her cheek too wan from lack tf
food? Waa he dead, or falae?
Alas, they hud quarreled bitterly,
the headstrong young lovers!
But a* Mabel wept so heart-brokenly
now, she thought leas of their bitter
quarrel and more of their love uid
happiness that golden summer wuen
they had gathered the roses to fill the
china jar, and kissed each other so
often beneath the bending foliage.
Utaron, In winter weather, they had
quarreled, because Mabel was die
pleased at Arthur's flirting with a cold
coquette. So the sweot idyl of love oamn
to a sudden end, and Arthur devoted
himself to the girls that Mahel deaf !scd
the most. She did not seem to cure,
although she favored none of her other
suitors, bnt smiled on all alike. Her
mummn did not allow her to take ref-
uge. liho Arthur. In reckless flirting.

But her timid arguments were inter-
rupted by Arthur's angry retort
"See here, Mabel, you're beginning
to quote my mother-in-law to me too
soon, and I tell yon pla.nly 1 won't
stand It now. nor after I'm married,
"You can never marry me unless you
change your fickle ways!" flashed Ma-
bel. indignantly, and Arthur, not tobe
"Very well. Miss Miller. I can soon
find another sweetheart us pretty as
you arc, and perhaps not so jealous!"
Mabel's blue eve* flashed with auger,
and tossing her beautiful golden head,
she threw his diamond ring disdain-
fully at his feet, Arthur picked It up
with a reproachful glance from liis
large, dark eyes, bowed scornfully,
and went away. After thatthey never
spoke as they paused by.
lint, in spite of their outward pride
and alienation, they had loved too
tenderly and truly to change at heart,
and each cherished a secret hope of
reconciliation. She thought that
Arthur would repent and own his
fault: he believed that Mabel would
repent and call him back.
Blit in one brief month her father
died, and the heart-broken wifequk'kly

Mabel and little Blossom were left
all alone In the cold world. Bicliea
took wings, unit friends forsook the
orphans. With a few dollars, and the
old china roee-jar, they removed to a
humble loom th'ey had rented in the
cottage of a poor widow. There, for a
little while. Mabel half hoped for
Arthur's coming. Surely, if he had
ever loved licr, he would throw pride
to the winds and come to her now,
when ahe was so poor, and sad, and
But the long months came and went
without a sign froaa Arthur, and It
waa more than two years now since
their angry parting. She seldom went
out. ahe did not read the newspapers-
she waa too busy and too poor- ao ahe
did not even know what had becomeof
her old love. He might be dead or
married—married to that aweetheart
he had boasted "he could find, as pret-
ty as Mabel and not so jealous"
Mabel had tried—oh, so hard!—to put
fickle Arthur out of her thoughts, bat,
alas, when Blossom's restless Angers
would stir the pot-pourri Into perfume,
the ghost of that dead summer and
that lost love would come oat from the
withered roae leave* and pull at Ma-

Wli le Mabel wept on her folded
handa, the restless little Bloesom,
ever Intent on childish mischief, came
and leaned against her knee, abstract-
ed the tiny stiver thimble from her
Unger, and trotted back to dabble In
the rose leaves again until she waa
presently put to lied afte drowsily
murmuring her baby prayer, "Now I
lay me down to sleep."
Then Mabel knelt to pray also, and
to her nightly petition she added, aa
often before: "God bless Arthur,
wherever ho may be, and give fctm a
olier de corpse. 'Beared lak I jest
turned round and dat letter was gone.
Blossom, she was a-stanin' eloie to de

"Oh. Mammy, Mammy, you'v,
wrecked my life! I'll never forgive
you—never-never!" wailed Mabcl.as sht
broke the seal of the dear letter whose
secret the old rose-jar had kept those
two long weary years.
And under date of two year* ago,
Arthur had written in a passion of
love and remorse and tenderness:
"My IUruxo Mabki.: 1 was 'n the
wrong, from first to last. Will you
forgive me, and make up our dreadful
"I have never been happy one

will love you enough to make up foi
everything when once vou are my dar-
ling wife. Blossom shall be my little
sister. Send me one word, my Mabel,
to put me out of my misery and bid ma
come to you! Your Abtiiub."
She turned on the old black woman,
her blue eyes haggard with despair.
"The letter waa from Arthur.to mak«
up our quarrel," she cried. "Vol
knew all about It. then, how we loved
each other and how we parted. Bui
now it is too late, forever too late
and she fell sobbing, with her lovclj
face against the withered roses of thai
golden summer when she and Arthui
had been happy together.
So black Mammy, with a sob of di*'
may, rushed from the room, and Blos-
som crouchec. over the scattered
poarri in round eyed amazement.
Mabel alternately kissed and wept
over the letter all day long, but In the
early gloaming she heard a manly
footstep inside the room.
"Miss Mabel, honey. 1 done fetch
him back to yon., darlin'." sobbed a
voice outside the door, and the girl
sprang to her feet in bewilderment.
A pair of tender arms clasped her to
a waAi, manly breast, dark, glorious
eyes beamed love into her own. fond
lips clung yearningly to hers, and Ar-

she gathered the cherub to her broad
bosom in a loving hug while Mabel
sought diligently in her little work-
basket for her missing thimble.
"It la not here. How strange, for I
had it late last night." she said. Then,
a sudden memory came over her. She
added, anxioualy: "lilossom. you had

Blossom trotted from corner to cor-
ir with a puckered brow of grave
perplexity and her rosy thumb in her
mouth, sure sign of perturbation.
Mabel and Mammy joined in the search,
diligently, but all in vain.
•Oh, dear! the little mischief, she ia

sighed Mabel, impatiently. "There
waa my gold pen that went so strange-
ly, my tooth brush, dozens of apoola of

trifles. But ahe can never remember
what she did with a single thing! She
muat have found a crack in the floor

to some purpose this time,for suddenly,
with a about of joy like an Infantile
