I will be in- troduced only we are leaving the house, and he can do as ha-pleases about continuing the acquaintance afterward." Belle was radiant with happiness when she returned to her father's, and delighted bis fond heart by the for she had been very quiet of late. Jenny and Bello chopped and talked and visited together for the next few days, and when the eventful morning arrived, and amid a bevy of beautiful, girls, Belle bhonc like a queen, the bride was eclipsed, and delightfully ac- knowledged it.
