Miss Struthcrs vvn: again tho first to

riago with your father, who was desperately
jealous of him. Ho was very, very ill, nud
thought himself dying, nud sent for her.
Sho'asked your father to let her go to let
horseo him for ono half.honr and 'ho ro

messenger came, nud sho went with him
Your father, when ho knew that sho had
gone, publicly renounced her, in his fierce

Bho then was innocont of nny wrong. For

sho banished sleep in her joy, so much
sweeter were her vcukiug dreams than those
slumber might briug. Now, though sho
might sock to purchase oblivion at nny cost,
it was denied her.

Ho liad loved this other girl too cold,
proud and fair. Ho had been jealous, uud
they had quarreled, then in pity ho had

"Oh, Vero I oh, nother ! " bho moaned,;
but neither of tho two, whoso lovo would

The dawn found hor kneeling still, but
