Adelaide. " Why, even if it Should prove
to be cousin Herbert's child, as in your
exuberant fancy you seem to have al.
ready concluded, I would not go. across
the street to make their • acquaintance.
Not that I have ..anything against them
personally ; but you surely' remember
Unole's words to us, ' You are 'never to,

your cousin, under pain of my severest
displeasure.' I can see him yet, and the ,
angetthat burned in face at the time
makes me shudder now,+:,when I think of

to be offended: Herbert violated his ex

assuredly, be the case, if I disobeyed
uncle Hugh ; so whatever benevolent

just now is, to get out of this disreputa

"High rents, ' , suppose," said Mabel.
"I admit," she continued, returning to
the subject so near her heart, " that
there was a groat deal said on both sides
that was wrong; but uncle's heart is not
stool now, whatever it was five years ago.
I do not belieire a day passes that he does
not yearn over his absent son, and I am
quite sure that Herbert's desire for a re•

a sarcastic tone.

is pride; foolish,"sinful pride, , that keeps
father and son apart; and I intend never
to rest until I see theM reconciled, even
though by so doing lam forced, as you
say, to go dut into the world and seek
roy own living. I have long made this
hope the subject of my daily prayer, and
I believe that God, in his own good time.
will permit me to see ha fulfilment."
%Den they left the dressmaker's, Mabel
Bair, "1 ant 'going to ace that child and
its parents ; and, sister, I have decided
not to buy new trimming for my dress,
but to use some lace I bavo at home; so

"You will .find that, even by wearing

suffice to cover the heads and feet of all
