The air was piercing, and a flurry of snow, that had fallen since morning, gave an aspect of inei pressible dreariness to the mountain scenery around the little village of Montespan, which boasted only one "great house " This wis the residence of a retired city merchant, whose lines had "fallen in pleasant place?,1' and who had in<?de his home 3 perfect dream of beautf The inhabitants of the village looked up with the greatest respect to "Squire Percival ' and Lis family lli? carriag?, his horses, hi? great dinner parties, at which his elegantly dressed and mnnr.ered wife greeted her city gue?ts with the dignity nf a queen?hi? house and grounds?nay, even the diamond ring and pin he wore, were objects of wonder and curiosity to the pimple folk who deemed themselves highly honored by his sojourn among them As to Kate Percival?the only child and rightful heiress of all this splendor, who had parsed most of her life in New York?to dance well, sing well, dress well, and coquet with a grace, were a!', the things that sho cared for. While Kate bad been absent from her pa rents, another had been growing up in the house?though ?ot a* a daughter to them. Sarah l'ercival was the daughter of a younger brother of the family, who, dying poor aud unfortunate, left his only child to the care of his brother Richard, with the earnest prayer that the might never mii-s the leve and ten derness she had always known. That prayer was heard, but never answered. For Richard l'ercival, a cold, hard, ambitious man. could not be expected to pet and fondle the lonely child, and his stately wife looked upon her as an interloper who might one day interfere with the plans and projects of her darlin^ Kate. Of the mother of this child nothing wa3 known. Mr. Richard Percival only shook hii head when any one miide inquiries about her, and muttered something about "poor Frank" and an "unfortunate marriage " Rumor bad pronounced the lady beautiful and fascina ting, and Mrs. Percival trembled in her soul, when jihe looked at tho healthful, animated, face of the little Sarah, and saw in her brown iiair and Urge dark eyes, a promise of that loveliness tfcat had won the father's heart. Tho bign spirited Sarah chafed inwardly at many a look of dial ike and many a taunt from the wife of her bcnefactor, but the world was wide and cruel, and while her uncle was tacitly kind to her, she are&ded to begin tho battle, lrom which, sho felt even theu, sho could never eorne out quite unscathcd But while bhe waited, tho inexorable hand of Fato was stretched forth to lead her out iuto the wmld from which she shrank, and Destiny accomplished that which sho herself might never had the courage to undertake. In the very prime of life?strong, healthful and hearty, her uncle, the head of the family, wa3 suddenly cut down. Of the gallant host, tho indulgent husband, the gallant man of business, nothing remained hut a cold, motion less body, wi h a shrouded face, lying quietly in ore of the groat ch^iubeis of the great house The -ervants passed that do<-r with suspended breath and a quickened tread; the widow in tho solitude of her own room wonder ing if her mourning would become her, and if the will of the dead man Lad left her mistress of the whole fo'tune; the daughter wandered disconsolately up and down tho handsome par lors, wishing herself ba^k in the gay boarding school she had left; and in the whole house, of all who bad flourished on his bounty, and shared the shelter of his roof, only one real mourner remained, and that was the daughter of his dccoased brother, to whom in life ho had never given a caress or a word of praise Aooid, measured voice pronounced Sarah's name, end, looking up with a sudden start, she saw her aunt standing beside her. gazing down upon the corpse with a collected air. "What are you doing here, Miss Percival'" she a^ed, in a freezing voice; " why are you not in your room' It is cold enoughh< re to?" sho stoj-ped short, glanced at the corpse, and shivered slightly " I did not mind the cold: I only wonted to see him once more,''said Sarah, dashing away tho tears, and rising to go. 14 You will pardon me, Miss Percival, if I fint no occasion for this violent display of grief on your part." " Madam 1" " Oh! don't look at me in that way,'1 eaid the lady, drawing herself up in a stately man ner " I hate hypocrisy, Miss Percival; I hate all crocodile tears." If she dsd not exactly add the words, "and I bate you," her looks showed it, and Sarah felt it so " Madam/' she eaid, indignantly, " I ajn at a loss to know what you mean. I have nothing to gain or lose by my tears for my uncle's death." " 1 am aware of that, but did not know that yua uiight be,' was the sarcastic reply; ' your uncle's fortune is, of course, all willed to hid rightful heirs." Saiah looked from her arrogant fa?e to that of the corpse, before she dared to venture a reply. What would the dead man have said to a conversation like this, held over him be fore he was laid in his coffin' "You have wronged me,3' she said, with dignity, " yet I cannot feel angry here The presence of the dead is surely enough to soothe the living." Mrs. Percival cast a glance of fear toward ? the unconscious body of her husband, and ta king Sarah by the arm, led her to her dress ing room, and shut the door. " Now Sarah, if you please, we will sit down here and talk of your future," said the selfish old iceberg, in a cold and unfeeling voice. She seated herself on the sofa and motioned the girl to her sido. A silence of some mo ments encued At last Sarah, looking up from the floor, found those dark eyes bent upon her with a deep scrutiny, as if they would read her very thoughts. " Well," said the lady, leaning towards her, with an indulgent smile. "I oannot talV of anything I am ignorant of," was the ambiguous reply. " My future is a mystery to me." " If you prefer staying here, of course we will try to accommodate you But I must tell you that neither Miss Percival or myself pur pose remaining here long after tho funeral. She will return to her school and 1'shall trav el?so you will have no one left but the ser vants for company " The proffer of a home was seemingly made in a kind way, but all the proud blood of the PeriMvals rushed to Sarah's check at the cov ert impertinence of tho speaker. " I thank you, Madam," she answered stif fly, 44 but I will not intrude upon your hos pitality any longer I will make arrange ments for a future home ar.d remove to it at once " Mrs Percival elevated her eyebrows super ciliously 44 And pray what do you inte nd doing, if J may be 30 impertinent as to ask ?

"Of course?and I, being without tho prop erty, must of course work," was the spiritec reply. "1 can do it, Madam?it may seen strange and hard at first, but I shall learn af ter a time. And He who tempers the wind t< the shorn lamb will aid me " " Verv good ! very good " Mrs Percival had not the slightest objectiot to *ur*h an arrangement, provided she was no called upon to unloose the strings of herpursi in the cause. She sat a few moment' apparently in deep thought, and then turning to Sarah, remarked, | 14 Vou are probably aware that a city like New York is ? dangerous place for a girl a? , young as you?and as?

Mis* Perci ?al." "I never <-hould make a good teacher?I have not patience and I don t like children, either." said Sarah "Not like children! Dear ine. how very shocking! ' and the lady applied a richly oha*ed vinaigrette to her nose, as if sho would forgot the very idea " That is"?stammered Sarah, feeling as if she had committed some great crime??? I ?hould not like theoi aronnd me so constantly And I have male up my mind to try and find some sewing to do in the city." 41 A seamstress ! A young lady who bas the good fortune tobe connected with my family?' 44 You mistake?it is not yours?but my own.'' paid Sarah, with flashing eye*. The lady waved her hand imperiously, and went on? 4- It makes little difierence. A young lady who had been brought up in my bouse to turr sewing girl! It is a disgrace and a ?hame If you persist in this determination, Miss Per . cival, you must not expect me to oountcnance , you in any way.

Vercival. I will not ac i knowledge you." She turned to ieave the room, but the lady called her back. Perhaps, a? she looked upon tho proud f ire of the girl and met her kind ling glance, some propnctic fancy dimly shad owed forth what s-no was one day to be. At least, her voice was kinder when she spoke again. ?'You are too quick-tempered. Sirah.

Put up your money, Mrs Percival, she said, drawing back, a-: the lady held a bill toward her I did not ask for money. I have enough left of what my uncle gave me oa ray birth day to take me to the city and support me for a wesk or two, till I can find employment I only want you to direct me to some quiet and respectable boarding house where I can bave a room to myself. Mrs Percival looked bewildered. 44 I am sure I don't know any such piaoc. I dare say there are a great many in the city, but ycu could not have upplied to a more ig norant person. And yet?stay, let me see ? I do know one woman who sometimes takes boarders, and if don't you mind living in a small street and among poor people. I c^n di rect you there."' ,;Any place?no matter how poor it may be ?if it is only quiet and respectable. Mrs. Percival penciled something on a card and laid it before the girl It was au obscure address., in at: ob^UTe part oi the city, where no ore would ever be likely to find out that the Miss Percivai who did '-slop work and the Miss Percival wno was an acknowledged beauty and belle, were own cousiiu. Sarah thanked her, and rose to s.iy good bye The door opened and Ka'.o Percival louuged past without noticing her, and threw hen-elf upoa the sofa beside her mother. " Oa dear, this house is so gloomy and wretched," she sighed 44 I have the horror. all tho time, mother, and I do wish 1 was back again in New York." " in a fow days you will have your wlih, my child," ?ail Mrs. Percival, in a tone very dii forest from that which she had used towards Sarah. For she had the one virtue that re deems every woman?she loved her child with a tenderness and unselfishness that was beau tiful to see. "Going Lack again? oh I am so glad !" And Kate went and stood before the mirror and udmired her face and form "Do you know, mother, 1 think my m urning gives me rather a distinguished air. I shall mme quite a sensation on Broadway this winter, i am so glad we are not going to be hived up in this musty house any longer." Sho began to walu around the roojp, and then seeing the shocked look on Sarah's face, exclaimed, '? Oh, I forgot," and went and sat down by her mother again with a countenance radiant with pleasure and deiight "Sarah will also be in the city," said Mr* Percival, blandly. " With us. mother ?" and Kate's large, dark eyes wore a look of angry pr>de *4 No. you will not see me, Kate," Sarah hastened to say, 44 unless indeed you employ me ; I am going to be a seamstress.'' A look of mingled scorn and satisfaction swept over her cousin s handsome face. A dangerous rival was well out of the way, and as to the disgrace?no one would know that she wus a relative of theirs So Kate was sat isfied. 44 It Is very proper, I presume," she .-aid, superciliously. 44liut, of eourse, you cannot expect mo to recognise you in such a bumble position, even if we should ohance to meet, which is not very likely to happen in a city like New York, unless you try to have it so ' 44 You need not fear me," said Sarah, draw ing herself up proudly. 411 shall stay here, if your mother will permit it, till the tuncral is over, and then I start for my ci:y homo. Uat from tho day 1 leave this house, Kite, 1 shall never force myself upon you, although ?<? I have said to your mother, the day will surely come, when you will be proud to recognise me as one of your family ." . . She took the card Mrs Percival had g??#" her from the table, and with a slight bow left the room Kate Percival gased after her in ?ilence, and then, turning to her mother sa d, with a light laugh? , ... rm? 44 llpou my word, I think we should be very thankful that we are going to get ridof Uf so easily.
