My sister flung her arms around

called me by many endearing names,
and I felt as if I almost deserved them,
exaggerated as they were.
I communicated my decision to
my lawyer the next day, telling him
that since I could not marry for love
I would marry for hate.
He uttered a sort of grunt, and re

On the second day after this inter

and a written request from my law
yer that I should call upon her with
out delay, as hc had settled the pre

manner. I did not fly on the wings
of love to the stately mansion of my
bride elect, as there bad been little
choice in the matter, but walked
thither like a man who bad volun

a handsome drawing-room, in which

appeared. She did not look hand

stairs, loading to the lawyer's office.
On the contrary, the' relation in

each one of the trio.

"I also saw pigs eating grass do

"Of course," said the three.
"And I also saw sheep and cows

"Of course," it was again replied.
