took h' eyes from Jenny, and she was so wags

with difficulty she coulitlitithold the gathering

ing paler as the night on, and she knew
she must part from what r heart held most
dear When the meal was tinished-,-311r-. Ellis,
passing his arm through H3rry's led him out in•
to the garden
" I)Ja't be dispirited, iny dear fellow! This

Do not think we a fool, Mr ' , nil.; I ha%e

But I'll out deteto you If you leave kr New

will send her to you."
Harry seated himself upuu a I ,,,ardeu kueh,
mud fell tut. deep tbuught, quite uuu.sual Cu b.s
vivacious temperament. At any total- time a
trip to 'some. fleign country would have heel] a
pleasant anticipaituu, fund as he was ul change

struck his ear did he row from his inelaucholy
reviirie filer presence gave him new courage,
and; x4tt u she sat by hts side, begging him to
look ever forward to a happy reutuseu, he felt
stirred to du something worthy a man who might
claim PIO lovely a creature for his wife.

the heavy damps of night warned them to seek
