to his son's door. It needed just such

. win Ned from his tearless agony to the
relied of tears and speech, and far into
the - morning the two sat talking of this
har4 turn in fortune.
The morning duties 'called - them
down, and Katie's heart ached over her

'comforted by seeing how deep was his
father's sympathy.
Days passed, and weeks, and Ned
tried to bear his sorrow like a man.
There was' no want of sympathy at
home, where the loving eyes watched
his pale , cheeks with a tender interest
that was almest,painful, and the brave
heart that wofild have given Susy its full
wealth of love, was generous to the
home circle, and for its sake tried to
live down the pain of disappointment.

tendeii toward . Katie, as he marked , her
sympathizing love. Not' a word drop
ped fr'Om any of them that could give
of reproach to Susy, and
some vague ideas of a rescue occasion
ally suggested theinselves to Neti,where
his love might win her from her father's
tyranny, or melt his obstinate resolve.
The idea that Susy could ever be his
wife without that couseut,never occurred
to him.
The winter had set in liefore one word
of the fugitives reached Allentown, then
Katie had a treasure to show, a letteri
from Buil—
'‘DEAu, DEAR KATIE' (so it reati), I

That was All; brit Ned felt, when Ka
tie told'him be might keep the letter,
that mines of wealth could not purchase
it from him. .
Five years passed, and no word came
rom Cincinnati. Katie was a wife now,
and mother to a bouncing boy crawling
about, the floor, but Ned was true as
steel to his old love. No word of court
ing had ever passed his lips since Susy
left him, and. if 'hie' tall figure had de-
veloped to .maaliness, his voice groin
rougher, his fiat* face order, 'the boy-
ish love still nestled down in the depths,
of his hearl, and he resolved to ( live ever"
a bachelor for Susy's suke. r i j
. t
Katie's new cares had somewh t cloud
ed her pain at Susy's departure, and the
name, that ho once been c):E.Eiweet a
household word, was now rarely heard
in the farm-house. . .
There was , something very ;touching
in the manly courage which Ned brought
to bear upon the. sorrow of it 'is life.
Never, save on the one night when
suddenness of the blow prostrated him,
bad be given way to the passionate grief
. _
in his heart, and his, calm p urs uitrt of the
weary routine of life evinced more moral
courage than isoften given to great deeds
that make the world ring.
It was, Sunday morning, and every
body at the farm-house had gone to
church except Ned and the baby. The
junior member of the household was fast
asleep on a rug before the fireplace, and
Ned was i reading, when a shadow fell
upon the floor, and a voice, low and
week, spoke his name. • 1

• Still.doubting, he rose and came to
meet her, till with a glad cry, he opened
his arms and folded her closely, as if_
never again to let her go. 1
'Sim! my Bisy! Ob, hownan I ever
be thankful enough? '.:4) StuiYl' and the
hot tears fell on the sweet face, as he
marked its white, wasted line'.
'Father took to drink- after he got

Ned; for city folks did not cit.() for us,

days her life hung on thread,

murdered boy struggling in the agonies

greatly surprised at such a query, an

on being further Ibterrogated, that
