holiday rambles were iilwiya directed; and the young
squire had came into possession of the Hall, with a wild
undisciplined mind and that same fierce will. Caring
only for field sports, and associating with the idle follow- ,

the quiet grace of Ellen Lloyd attracted him, meeting
her as he did within the shadow of his very roof. And

And in another moment his arms were around her e

did not speak, but he pressed wild kisma upon her hair
and cheek, and brow. tightening his clasp .meanwhile
as if he feared she would be torn from him. But no;
she lay quite 'till, the tears running down her face, and
sobs rending her very heart.

She shook her heed sadly, and walked rapidly swap,
motioning him back when he would have joined her.
There was no sympathy in nature for her heavy heart.
The sky was uncloaded. and a rich light and shade
checkered the Path she trod so hrtrriedly. Now and
then through the trees came a glimpse of Aytoa Hall.

Ellen sickened at the crafty smile which lit her features.
She wondered she had never seen the expreeelion befkire:
