When, at last, the clock was on the stroke of three, I caught the quick trauip of his horse's feet But it did not greatly relieve me. I felt angry, nnd instead of running down to meet my woman's nature prompt- ed me, I yielded to my petted, wayward will, and kept niy seat. When he reached the porch, he sprang down flushed, and eager. he cried, the moment he caught sight of me, are you up yet 1 I am so sorry." He approached, both hands extended. But I turned from him and went into the hall He stood for a moment fn silent as- tonishment, then followed, and took my hnnd. though I kept uiy face peristently averted. he said, what is it 1 are you ill, tired?

He loosened his hold on my hands but looked after me, as I left him, with a glance T shall never forget. I can see him now, as he stood in the handsomeand noble and I loved him so well! I wonder why I turned from him that night. Heaven knows how it pained me. But the spoiled, willful tem- per, that has been my ruin, urged mo on. Did you ever speak a harsh word to one you lovo, and feel something within you prompting you to speak another Then you understand how it was that I left niy husband standing there, weary and supperless.

Violet." it began, you must par- atid the surf d'tn intrusion. It v.ill be the lust, for, in all human probability, the dis- ease that now consumes me will coon give me a grave in a foreign land. But there are a few things that I wish to suv before I die. 1 was wronp; not to years of inexpressible agony; the news came A ship, home explain all to you from the fu-t. But I desired to spare you what you might consider a disgrace. I thought you could and would trust nie. It was my sister you saw. She was vain and friv- olous, and eloped with a profligate. The marriage was illegal, and Ethel was dis- graced" She came to me for help. I could not refuse her. I was taking her to a sate asylum when I was absent that night. You understand it all now. Don't be troubled, dear, but forget me and be happy. My sister is dead now. and 1 have not. I fear, long to live. God bless you, dear In hdavcn all things will be righted." For two years I lived alone at Swan's Nest then ward bound from Calcutta, was lost, and Horace Reade was among the passen- gers. That was the death of hope Another year passed by. One sweet May evening I strolled down to the sea shore. The sun was setting in waves of gold and purple, and thefull moon canie up, flooding 'he great, sea and the lon-j; stretch of glittering sand with misty splendor. The tide rolled in with a low musical murmur. I sat down on 9 rock. Fur out upon tho bar a stately vessel swung at anchor, and a, little boat from it was coming in. I watched the tiny craft with a kind of fascination. Pres- ently it grated on the sand, and a man sprang ashore. A wild, nameless hope took shape in my heart. I arose and tottered for- ward, blind and half unconscious. The instant, after, a strong arm clasped me. I looked up into the face above me. It was wan and worn, and changed by suffering, but I knew it in an instant. Oh, Horace, my husband I cried, forgive Then I felt his tears upon my cheeks, his kisses on my lips, and I sunk into his arms insensible. It is sill remorse, the lone- liness, tho aching pain! We live at Swan's dear, forgiving hus- band and myself. I had engaged my passage, he said. an agent or attorney, and receive a cut for one quarter section of land at provided in section one of this act, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of said first section, or liable to all the pro- visions thereof except as to the actual residence and that all acts and things required to be dono by the homestead settler by said first, section, in-iy be by said agent ov attorney; provided that no such agent or attorney' shall act as such for more than one person at thu same time.
