And yet it was even BO. It wag because he hoped to live all his after life in the Warmth of those glance?, that he had wooed •nd won her in the bright days of her young Womanhood. And when he saw the light growing daily dimmer and dimmer, and felt its genial warmth diminishing, a Miadow fell Upon his spirit. Very kind, very attentive, the husbar.d remained, but his wife became Kware of a certain coldness toward herself that was far from being as pleasant as the lover-like manner with which he had former ly treated her and many times she sighed tor the tones and glances she saw him give to other ladies, as he sighed for like to kens of interest from herself. Both were in error, and both, in a certain sense, to blame. On thj evening referred to, the contrast between the manner of his wife to himself •nd to other men who showed her little at tentions, was felt with more than usual dis tinctness by Mr. Archer. He was not jeal ous, for he knew the truth of her character, not offended but hurt. Almost any pricc Would he have paid for the bright return an other received for a simple act, the double of which on his part, would scarcely receive a passing notice. Not long after this Mr. Archer saw his wife drop her handkercief. Steppidg forward from where he stood talking with a lady, he lifted it from the floor and placed it in her band. His eyes were fixed upon her coun tenance, but she did not so much as return his look, nor make the slightest acknowledg ment merely receiving the handkerchief with a quiet indifference, in striking contrast with the way in which she had taken the glove from another'^ hand. Mr. Archer was disappointed. The droping flowers in his heart were pining for sunbeaines, and he had hoped for a few bright rays. But they were not given. A lady to whom Mrs. Archer had been in troduced that evening, and who was a stran ger to both herself and husband, sat by her side. They had been conversing with KODIC animation, and were interested in each other, i Th is lady was struck by the marked differ- something.

Was it possible that her husband had felt her manner as co'd, be half indifferent, or averted glances. And toward one who was but little less than a yet, Mrs. Archer was a faithful wife in all her stranger, and contrasted it as the lady had dutiful relations, and in her heart a loving done, with her seeming indifference to him wife to her husliand.
