A NEW YEAR'S RONDEAU.!

(Exodus xv. 27.)

PALM-TREES and wells they found of yore,
Who—that Egyptian bondage o'er-

Had sight betimes of feathering green,

Of lengthened shadows, and between,
The cool, deep-garnered water-store.

Dear,-dear is Rest by sea and shore :
But dearest to the travel-sore,
Whose camping-place not yet has been

Palm-trees and wells !

For such we plead. Shall we ignore
The long Procession of the Poor,

Still faring through the night-wind keen,

With faltering steps, to the Unseen ?-
Nay: let us seek for these once more
Palm-trees and wells !

THE PALADIN,

AS BEHELD BY A WOMAN OF TEMPERAMENT.

BY HORACE ANNESLEY VACHELL.

BOOK I.

CHAPTER I.

WHICH INTRODUCES OUR PALADIN.

ESTHER shed no tears when the lamentable news was told to her by the doctor, who had been summoned hastily in the middle of the night. The blow was so sudden and heavy, as if dealt by a bludgeon, that its effect was to deaden rather than quicken the girl's sensibilities. Her father had died by his own hand ! The other blows which followed-loss of fortune, the sense that she must leave her home and the things she loved-hardly made impress at the moment, so dazed was she by the first brutal assault of fate. Not till long afterwards did she realise that, in the highest sense, she had never loved a father who had given undivided energies and interest to an immense business. To his only child, Douglas Yorke had offered toys and sweetmeats, and, as she grew older, whatever else she might want. To ask for anything became to Esther a synonym for receiving it. She never asked for love, because she did not know what love is. Before she was fifteen she had been told that her father spoiled her terribly. This intelligence was accepted calmly, without reflection, in the same spirit with which she accepted chocolates and trinkets. Probably she believed that her father adored her because he gratified every girlish whim. Most undoubtedly she was convinced that she adored him because he had never scolded her, or found fault, or behaved like the fathers of many girls she knew. Once or twice she had wondered why other fathers kissed and caressed
