The blushes came back to her face, ebbing to

guessed, perhaps, at the condemoatiou sod con

of all our class he was the only man whose up

JAM I. P.l
The ceremonies had broken up, the crowd
closed to between us, and they seemed swept
away from toy sight—this Ulan and-Dora Sand
ford. I would have given worlds to know if
they went together—if the audacity of that man
had reached so bold a point; but when I went
swiftly forth into the street they were gone, and
though I walked up and down for a full half
hour before Dors's dwelling, they neither passed
in nor out. So I went b owi e t o my so li tary
chamber, in a students' boarding bow and sat
down to think wide, wide world was be

go? The past hail given we knowledge sad
strength, the present was a single spot of ground
upon which I might pause to breathe before eu•

bad no future but Dora, my bright, beautiful
Dora, whose blushes had that night convinced
me that my wild love was not entirely without
its reward.
My profession, with a small sum of money,
was all I had to Jspend on--test roll of vellum
on the table was my title deed to vague greatness,
which should in the end be laid at Dora's feet.
I. bad no professional aspirations that did not
centre around this fair vision. The Bret grand
passion of my youth left no identity to any
other; ambition, every thing, was merged in my
hopes of attaining Dors. While a student I

Now the blood rushed in a torrent through
my heart. I sprang to my feet, olenehiug my

The WSW who spoke was Wasop Whig,

But Durs waved amide his hand, passing

Her voles quivered as she spoke, and she

The man uttered a low, uneasy laugh, and
Berard to offer her some careless caress, for she
drew back 'Whir, proudly, saying.
