EVENING STAR THE 8TAE WIHDOW; OK, THE OLD MAN'S DARLINU BT VS'lHirRID WOODFBSN CHAPTER 1. The bouse staads bark within the wood . Few passer* by e'er come this way. Night after night, day after day, It stands, serene and calm and gray, As It to loa# has stood ! A peaceful silence over all,? Mo s grows upon the massive wail, And on the casements good?W. W. There were many other rooms in the largr old-fashioned house, uiany roouis smaller and lighter, and fitted out with modern furniture, with beautiful pictures, frames and screens, musio racks, and hanging book-shelves. But from tho time when I, a tiny child of fire years old. bad gone to live at inydead mother's birth-place, 1 had always loved this room best; because it was high and dark and gloomy; because the silver moonlight, entering through the drapery of morning glories, shimmered on the floor and wall# in a thousand fantastic shapes; because a certain carved book caae of black wood stood in one corner of the room, and held a choice selection of old romanoss, and ghost and fairy stories; and an ancient piano with little brass knobbed drawers in the sides, which had belonged to my mother in her girlish days ; and last, not least, because her portrait bung.there?the red lips always smiling, the blue eyes always looking kindly down upon her littlo orphan child. In a deep bay window, at the end of the room, was my favorite seat, the old arm-chair where she had rocked me to sleep throughout my troublesome infancy. A large and heavy mahogany tabic stood in the recess ; it was well furnished with my writing-desk, and the books I lovod the beat. My guitar-case stood within a conveni ent distance, and the heavy crimson curtains of the recess shut me in when I choose to have them. Here was my dreaming place?my happy valley?tny "eyrie," as Clyde Hamil ton often called it. My guardian was a widower, without chil dren, who lived in this grand old house, with his servants, his oH housekeeper, and his two wards?Clyde Hamilton, (Lik nephew,) and myself, Clyda Stanton. We were related, in a distant way. and Clyde and I were brought up together like brother and sister We were much alike in person, as well as in name Both tall and blender, both fair with brown h?ir and eyes of clear, d:*rk gray ; both mer ry, active, daring and thoughtless But her?* the resemblance ecased, for Clyde was gentle and yielding in disposition, while 1 was sin gul irly determined and tiery My guardian used often to look at us and sigh, and once I heard him say: " Clyda should have been Clyde " This brief remark made a deep impression on me, young as I was. I often used to weep secretly, because I was so head strong, and resolved to do better, but at the first provocation, presto! the eyes flashed the face flushed, the litile hand was raised, and Clyda beut meekly before the storm My guardian was a very handsome man. He was tall and erect, finely formed, though slightly tending to corpulency His majestic form?bis straight, proud features, his high white forehead, and curling hair, nearly au burn in hue?his heavy, curling beard and moustache, awl the calm, immovable expres sion of his face, all denoted strength?and I admired and was proud of them. But his smile, though very sweet, was sad ; there was a glance of lestless pain in his large blue eyes ; and an undertone of melancholy in his voice, like the distant music of the lonely sea. I often wondered what could be the reason of this, but I never dared to ask I was his pet and favorite ; I climbed up his knee and nestled in his bosom; both Clyde and myself wero taught tocall him ' Aleck,'' in the place of the more formal "Guardian," or "Mr. Hamilton ;" but though we were with him so Constantly and familiarly, he drew a line be tween as unconsciously, and his soul said to mine, '? Thus far sbalt thcu come, and no far ther !" Never, by word or deed, or look, did I step over the boundary line; not that I feared him, but because 1 was too proud to intrude upon his inner life My guardian was not an old man. Not more than thirty years had passed over his head, when my sixteenth birthday came round. But on that day, as I eat upon his knee and rolled his soft curia of shining hair round my finger. I saw, what I had never no ticed before, that they were slightly sprinkled with gray. 1 could not quite repress an ex clamation of??urprise ; he looked up from the reverie into which he had fallen, and saw my eyes still fixed up?,n the cutis. His face changed at once, and saying abruptly " You arc growing almost too large a girl to keep this old place upon my knee," he put me from it, rose, and went into the library and locked himself in His words pained me, for I liked to be near him, and lay my head upon his shoulder. But they were forgotten the next day by us both, and i took my seat again without reproof. I had not grown too large yet to occupy the room he had given me in Lis heart. He was our teacher. Four hours every day were spent with him in his library, and Clyde and I studied Latin and Greek from the same book. Nor was our musical education neg lected. Clyde s voice was like Alek's?a fine, clear tenor, though lackiug the rich and mournful music that thrilled the heart when ever he sang. Mine was a deep and rich con tralto, and our concerts in the tuusie room were by no means t<> be depieed. My guar dian played, as he sang, divinely. He was a genius in this respect The org.m was his fa vorite instrument. 1 played ur>on the piano and guitar, and Clyde loved ocst to awake the soft echoes of the flute. And the greater part of our evenings were spent in the music room together, where all these instruments had their accustomed place. Then came the good night kiss and greeting, and we sepa rated, to await the coming of as happy a mor row. Bui the " Star Window Yes! that war what I was going to tell you about. It was the bay window of which I have already spoken, and was known by that name, be cause from its open casement we had traced the constellations on many a winter evening And also, because 1 had a peculiar habit of sitting there, each night, when the evening star arose, and dreaming such gorgeous dreams as colored all my inner and outer life. It became a by-word in the house when 1 was asked for, at this particular hour. "She is at the Star Window talking with Venus." Cer tainly the Goddess of Beauty had somewhat to do with those exquisite dreams. And when, from the music room below, 1 heard the solemn tones of the organ, or the mellow notes of the tlute, such vague longings, such wild desires, beginning and ending in a pleasing pain, would thrill through my heart, that 1 could only sit and weep passionately, or walk t: e floor in a wild and melancholy unrest. In such a mood, one night, I hardly noticed that the organ had ceased, till my guardian's arm passed around my wrist, and his step kept pace with mine. The gathering twilight tilled the room with a dusky and uncertain light?in the sky a pale and silvery moon was gliding through fleecing white clouds ; a cool but pleasant wind rustled through the apart ment and murmured mournfully through the tunes beyond the house. In the worn below I could hear Clyde still playing upon his be lovea flute. Neither of us spoke for a time; he seemed buried in his own thoughts, and I was analy sing mine. At last I stopped short, faeeds him, and placed my two hands upon hi shoulder, asked : , " Aleck, tell me what is life ?" "Is what? ' he asked, in a doubtful tone.

But suddenly the wailing of the breezes ia the pines emote me like a inelancholv warning. 1 .'topped short, moved a little closer to Aleck, and sat d"wn. We sat upon the hill-side juat beyond tha house. A small valley lay between us and it; that, as well as the hill, was taming brown and sere with dying grass Tha houaa looked large, and grand, and gloomy. A light burned in the windows of the musio room, and just above, the moonbeams Bilvered the panes of my casement, till they shone lika a molten sea of glass "Oh! look, Aleck!M I cried. "Look at th? star window!" "You should see it at sunset Than it Maws like a watch-fire," waa his answer; ami he bowed his head upon hia hands and seemed to think We sat there a long time, silent.
