And when Agnes was told, she said in her gentle, quiet wa^', that father had always been wise, and it was no doubt arranged best for all; besides, as for herself, she had no aspirations, she needed little. J-'oor girl, her heart was so full of grief for the loss of her best friend, and she thought her brother would always deal justly with her and nse ber kindly. Truly Hugh McGowan loved his gentle sister—loved her with all the intensity of his strong manly nature— and he little thought that within five years from the time he assumed his guardianship, they would become sad ly estranged and separated. But so it was. Allies had reached her eighteenth ,\car wiicn her father died. There was not a more accomplished young ladj' in tiie village. Perhaps tall for her sex but with a faultless form.

But the affiiir never was cleared up. The book keeper, the day that General Sherman was at Atlanta, about two hundred and forty miles distant, he and his comrade determined to ti'}' to escape, aud make their way thither. One of them had an old-fashioued watch with a compass in the mediate vicinity, and waters of theso contain iron, alum, magnesia, and sulphuric acid. Notwithstanding the. ditiiculty of reaching this place aiui. the poor accoiumodation;^, large numbers of invalids go there from tlu> ous to the denouement, had left the i to direct their course, which was noai back of it; and by this tliey expected I Southern States to drink the water'.; of village, ostensibly to visit his ptirents. He was never heard of afterwards, and Hugh McGowan, who persisted in be lieving Mark a party to the guilt, tried to hush tho nia'ter up, instead of hunting for tho missing book keeper.
