The Ujj Boltl a giant Ain 1 aloft Hare in my Tower with my Granite jaws i devour the Maine tue wheat and the Rye and grind them into flour. I look Down Over the farms in the Fields of Grain i Nee the Harvest that is to be and i fling aloft my arms for i know it is All for to i hear the sound of flails far Oil from the threshing floors in barns with their open doors and the wind the wind in my sails louder and louder Roar. I stand Here in my place with my foot on the Rock below and whichever Way it May blow i it face to face As u Brave Man meets his foe and while we wrestle and strive my master the Miller stands and feeds me with his hands for he knows who makes him thrive who makes him lord of lands. On sundays i take my rest Church going Bells their Low melodious Din 1 Cross my arms on my breast and All is peace within. W. Longfellow in youth s companion. Sa1dek. At your service. Sir from the Gay Svor teds she was sorting she looked up with a mischievous expression befitting her words yet underlying it a goodly measure of the rare tenderness that Only a woman s face can Wear. Hers seemed a strange face for a Lover to Irown upon but frown he emphatically. I Ain in no mood for jesting he continued glumly nor probably will you be when 1 Tell you what that we have so Long debated must be decided Between us now. The sunny smile torn her Counte Nance the rare tenderness seemed but the rarer for its Gravity. I am sorry she answered softly i so hoped you would see its impossibility and agree with me he could but read How she loved him but he read something else now in look and that momentarily banished the frown and paled his hand some face. With a passionate impulse he arose and crossing Over to where she sat took her hands in his. And gazed Down into her Brown eyes Long Tiad Stead ily. Saidee do you care at All he asked finally. Do i care for you she murmured reproachfully yet with the rap Ture of his touch reflected in her do i care for you of How can you ask me that when you know that there is Only you in the whole wide world for his hands fell he turned a Way from her impatiently with a bitter smile. If 1 am All the world to you Saidee you certainly have a very strange Way of showing it. Your words Are pretty but they do not weigh at All with inc. If you would have me believe you come and Promise to obey me As every woman should the Man she he extended his arms toward Hei As he spoke there was a look on his face she could not mistake. She knew that it would be the last last time but still she took no step Forward she simply stood terrified Appe Almuly gazing up at my. He was frowning again now deeper than before. I know what you would say he interrupted and it is Only a waste of words. As i said before your words have no weight with me it is enough for Ine that you Are ready to have me go away alone. And no to As i shall no to Morrow we May As Well say she had not taken her eyes from his face and he still looked Back at her relentlessly steadily. At his last word she shivered a death like pallor overspread her countenance and she answered him Brokenly he did not interrupt her now he Bent Forward with conscious eagerness Tor her words. His own were honest but he Felt certain of their effect he did not doubt that in this decisive moment he would gain her to his will. She would surely not let him go she was about to yield to him to say that there could be no Good Bye be tween them that sooner than this she would a Juru All and follow him. And so he Ben Forward for the answer eagerly with a certain Hope. If you so will you in stg but i can never say Good Bye to you. That was what she said Brokenly ten Derly yet with the gentle firmness that had so startled him just now. If you so will you must they were Little words but to did not mistake Thorn the fullest judicial sen tence never weighed More heavily. A moment he stood regarding her shaking with pain and disappointment a moment passion swayed him a ering impulse but he quickly cashed them Down. I do so will replied with scornful object to Good Bye let us make it Goud Atter noon. This their parting so he left her striding out and past the window by which she sat. She did not turn she sat fixed and rigid listening to his Retreat ing footsteps each of which was a knife stabbing deep Down in her heart. As they died away she started up As if to follow him her lips parted with a passionate cry but As suddenly his cutting Flop Ted Back to her it Sank into a moan. And this is the end of it All i she murmured when lit knows How i love him when he knows would die for him. Of Wilfred my love my Dearest How could you leave me so i it was not strange that that other time should Rise vividly before her that Day six months ago when in Thia very room in the first Blissful realization of their Mutual passion he had fallen on his Knets before her stud solemnly affirmed that come what would no Power on Earth should Ever separate him from her. If Ever a woman was sure of a Man Saidee you Are sure of me1" what music the words were though neither of them could foresee the future and the sore test that awaited them. All seemed Bright before they were to be married in six months time and she was to go away with him to Brazil where he had secured a government appoint ment. There seemed no need of the passion ate protestations the solemn oath of this fond Lover their truth was to be tried. In the fifth month of their engagement whom Saidee was the Especial pet and from her Carriage and received injuries which though it waa not believed they would prove fatal it 11 her in a very apprehensive state. True the wadding Day was named and Wilfred must go True there were Loving hearts beside i Saidee s to care for poor aunt Ruth but it seemed to her tender nature most n crime to leave her until at least the was positively All past. And when morning the old lady Drew Down t5 e face to hers and whispered you will not leave me pet while is a doubt of my getting she premised unhesitatingly that she would perhaps if she had known Wilfred Hare better she would not have promised so readily. But she knew him Only As the tender Lover the Man who had sworn that come what would no Power on the Earth should Ever separate him from her it could be Fiasili settled she thought he As she would feel very sad and disappointed but he As she must see the impossibility c f her going now. They could be married and As soon As aunt Ruth was decided out of danger she would go with him. All this in Lull Trust and Faith she confided to Wiifred Hare. She was ill pre pared Lor the reception her words met the imperious Workings of the Man s will what right had she without consulting him even 11 make a Promise to any one that conflicted with her own to his love Gai e him the right to command her if she oved him she would obey. She must Narry him and go away with the Irp resent relations must cease. In vain she pleaded her Promise her tender affection for Ruth he would yield nothing to an old woman s whim. So he remained imperious persistent she Trou bled yet hopeful thinking t Jat finally he must. Neither believing that separation a. Possible when the testing time should come. Saidee s Rove to smile sue took up her worsted Ai d continued sorting them As if thus to begin disc pining herself for the burdens of her new life. It could not be otherwise she could not break Promise to her aunt Ruth she could not leave her now. And As Wilfred she must submit. Annd her paint Rose a sudden keen feeling of disappointment it vanished almost immediately in a realization that was born from it. I am so she said softly that i am not of those who think u perfect object is necessary for Loving i do not think a perfect object is a test of love. I am not Blind Wilfred is very tyrannical selfish very very unkind but As never till to Day have i fully realized it so never has he bc3n so dear to this n Aliza Tion awoke a tender r solve. I can never let him go away so i must prove to him How dear he is must Ever be prom his came the tender note that found its was next morning to Wilfred Hare i let you go away dear with out one ittle word. I know you arc an Gry me and i am very very unhappy for Kisver since our engagement have loved of us to Day. My Little word is that i must always always love you and tha1 i will never marry any Man except Tilfred Hare. Perhaps some Day you i i understand and forgive me and the i Vou will Berlad to think of very sadly she dropped the tender Little note in the mail Box very drearily she Wert Back the familiar Road to her Home. It seemed but yesterday that she had walked Here with Wilfred so Happy and confide it. How sad and dark the Load seemed now so absorbed was Saidee that so i did not see the Man walking just ahead i f her who suddenly turned and paused As if awaiting her. She started As she Crew closer and perceived him her Fin t impulse was too flee she shrank from t be sad face that she Felt was so her of a now. But it was too late Fie had retraced his Ste s to meet her Aad was now walk ing at Bier Side. A he said softly Saidee there Are no Many Days now. Do not Send me away rom you Ile aade no Effort to cloak his tender Ness Ither in word or look. He had loved Are from the Happy time when As child a they had walked this very Road together she knew it and it had once been the great sorrow of her life that she could not return this love. Despite the sting of his words there wok in her heart a pity for him such As Shi had never known before a wild regret Ful longing that she could not have Lovell him a sudden strange realization had wasted her affection that this Nan s stanch Loyal heart was Worth a Hundred such As Wilfred Hare s. This last she battled quickly Down not so the pity or the longing. Strangely moved scarcely knowing what she did she placed her hand on his Arm and an swered gently there will be Many Many fays for us to walk together is could but have a presentiment of her meaning so sadly Earnest was her tone. That do you say he asked with pity for her and a Joy he could not rep Ess mingling oddly in his Louk and Tonu. That i am not going to be married a not yet awhile. Will rect is 8ugry with me but i must not Tell Yoi do not know Why i so forget my self it a Only that i am to stay with aunt Ruth for the is All 6 he truly said she did not know Why so Felt a very tra Toress thus openly to ble me Wilfred Hare. She did not real ize poor Saidee How pleasant Mark is the s Devotion had suddenly become to he Plain she was making this. But he could not see. He walked on beside her silently lit be dreaming he s aught to her to Day beyond what he had been before. Never had life seemed so dreary to Mark even that beak morning when he Learned she was to marry Wilfred Hare. Then his Unselt i soul found Solace in the thought that she was Happy now he stood in the presence of her who had he the Power would not have permitted the viands to blow roughly on could n 5t save her its least Pang. He understood Wilfred Hare better Fiat she it would have been easier per haps to resign her to any other Man. It not strange that in tuis hour realize his own loyalty and tenderness lie should rail at Justice and the Meriest of laths. The Days passed slowly drearily to Haidee with each her Lovo for Wilfred stare growing deeper her grief sharper unendurable. Come what will no Power on Earth shall separate me from morn noon and night those mad words 3ame Back to her and with them a Hope co feed upon. Surely All would be right 3he thought. He could not give her up. He was Only angry with her he would come to understand and forgive her and then All would be Well again. Those were uneventful Days till one morning the news was brought to Sai Dee thut aunt Ruth could not live that contrary to expectation the Peculiar troubles that resulted from injuries had developed fatally. Her gentle heart smote her Lor often often this later time she had regretted her Promise in her anguish wished she had broken it. Fer a while remorse banished All else from her thoughts but love is a mighty thing and poor aunt Ruth had not been Long under the before it regained the Mastery. He would surely write now that aunt Ruth was dead he would surely under stand so she was musing one Twilight when there came a Knock at the door and a let Ter was handed into iter at the sight of the familiar writing she could not repress a rapturous cry despite the presence of the new servant who knew nothing of Wilfred Hare her trembling fingers could scarcely break the Seal. And when she Only a wedding card the Little note she had written him and the line it is but right i should restore to you your Wilfred Hare had proven himself. She read it she broke into a fit of hysterical laughter and then not knowing what she did she dropped it and went Down and out Over the Lawn far into the Maple Grove. Looking ahead saw Mark Vale coming toward her. He had heard of this lie was coming vaguely wit i Only the thought that he must com fort her. She waited Tor him she stretched out the hand which still held the card with a dreary smile she said did you know Wil Fred was married did you she Cov old say no More the Lull reality had broke. To had endured much he could not endure the look now on her face. With sudden uncontrollable impulse lie threw his arms around her and Drew her to his breast of Saidee forgive me forgive me but i cannot see you so cried Mark vane quite terrified at his act striving vainly to Loose his arms. To his Surprise did not resist him he even fancied she Clung to him. Do not Send me a voice floated up 10 him. I have Only got you to love me and i know you love me very was this a delusion or was she mock ing him in her despair he murmured bewilder edly do you mean you could marry he was All she had. Hers was a nature to crave a prop it seemed to her that moment that never a Lovo was so Sweet to woman As Mark vane s was to her. I loved she answered Brokenly. But i have lost love and i must have love or my heart will break. Dear Mark if you can marry me so i will be a Good wife to Saidee i with the one word therein Lay his soul he Drew her gently almost reverently closer to his wildly beating heart. And so he married her and he is con tent. For she never repulses him his love seems always Sweet to her and some times of her own will she comes and Twining her arms about his neck kisses him tenderly. Knows de scripture.

The notion of putting a Light inside the body so As to see what is going on there and to take remedial or Preven Tive measures accordingly is not entirely new but it is very interesting. This is the aim substantially of the poly an invention which it is asserted will Render an examination of every part of the human body feasible.

Miss Margaret Willis slapped her maid in the face one morning As the girl was dressing her hair. How often must i Tell you not to draw the hair so tightly Back from my she exclaimed. It must be quite Loose though firmly hold you quite make me look like a it was a soft hand yet it could give a stinging blow As Agnesia had Learned during the last Tew weeks for such were new in her experience with miss Willis who till lately had been the Sweet est of mistresses. She said nothing How Ever but made haste to loosen the Brown hair Over that snowy forehead till Margarct s Sharp told her that the right Point had been. Miss Willis was already dressed for she had adopted the custom of the pm press Eugenie of having her hair arranged last. When it wus Linis Hecl she Rose letting slip the Large Cambric Mantle that covered her and went to take a care Ful Survey of herself in u Long Mirror that stood Between the two windows. The insult could not have been other Wise than pleasing. She work a Long tunic of lace ind Muslin in stripes Over a Lavender milk and Rose coloured bows on the half open sleeves and under her Lovely Chin. She owned toward her a vase of Large Pink and White fuchsias she fastened a Bunch of them urdu Ute her head like a Coronet and taking the Pearl rings from her ears Hung fuchsias in their places. "1 am going for a walk below the Bel she said then to her maid say nothing about it to any one and keep people Wuy if you can. If any of those dreadful tourists come Here to Bee the grounds Tell the Gardener to come to the Terrace and whistle 1 miss Willis went Clown the grand stairs. Not a soul was in sight. At this Hud just struck eleven from the clock in the grand the la Dies and gentlemen a the Villa except perhaps the master of it the Marquis of san Giorgio were in their rooms and would leave them Only at Tho sound of the breakfast Bell which Laug precisely at noon. It the Marquis was out he would boat the potteries in the very farthest Corner of the Villa. He almost in variably devoted the hour or two before breakfast to his correspondence. Following is Little path that wound among the shrubs and tree.-, Margaret descended to the level where from the windows above she might have shown like a Large Flower in the midst of the Rich Green. She did not wish to be from the windows however but to escape All Noser vation for u time and to study for an hour her position with the branching stems with tiny Blue bios soms. Picture after picture started up. The Large old fashioned mansion House wit its pleasant verandas its Fields and Gar Dens and Woods appeared All its twittering swallows circling round the boil ing Spring bubbling up under a Birch tree in the held the Well with its curb pole Aud bucket Mossy and Dank in the midst of the Chip strewn backyard Shin ing tin milk cans drying on a Suun Bench outside the Back door lace cur tutus waving in the drawing room win do Tia Sparent Musliu curtains nut tearing and puffing out from tue chamber above. A Blue smoke curled zip Iron the Chimney of the Kitchen where the floor was so White and the Bird s by Maple ironing table turned Back on Hing a and left a great chair for nil but Iron ing Days. The town but a mile Distan looked Over an intervening Hill and the primeval Forest Hung dark As a Thunder Cloud close at the other hand. It was the Best of the City with the Best of the country site had gone into the Woods with he brother Jamie. She had coaxed him t take her and Jamie never refused he anything. How Good he was to her tha Day lifting her Over the wet places giving her All the Little yellow violets h found holding her up to look into a Bird nest while the Mother Bird chirped Dis tres fully tree and Tulliu her such wonderful things of Birds an Trees and Flowers that he had Learne from books. Picture followed som Bright others Mournful Ginny of them interwoven with the simple Herb which she held clasped to her breast we Fth unconscious hands. There was John. With a dreamy Smil on her lips and her unseeing eyes fixed her Ducy saw him grow up through a her remm Betances of him first Jamie Dearest Friend and play fellow late Friend too and to Revei her Friend. A Earnest Good boy and an Earnest goo firm As a Rock in principles an character and with something that migh remind one of the Rock in his form an face in the Square Broad shoulders the wide forehead and the firm Mouth tha was never to ready to smile and never too much to say. He was gentle too prom the time when in her seventh year he lifted her All wet and trembling of of the Lisook into which she Bud fallen and carried her Home in his arms to thei interview when she had laughing turned aside the declaration of love tha for the Hundredth time he had att mate to make and left him with that Hurt be patient look which she had so ofte caused his face to assume in All tha time not a Hasty or unkind word Hail h spoken to her and never once had h neglected a wish of hers or seemed to re sent even in his own her careless coquetry. This love had begun 011 the Day when Hall drowned and wholly Ter j rifled she bad Clung round his Nock Anc i sobbed out her gratitude to him 1 of John How i do love you for Rani lag up just now the water was choking me. I wish you would always Sta Closi to to just As Long As i live 1 and John had responded with his Cheek blushing warm against her Chilly wet Onu it never fail you when you want and he never had failed her. A bal rang. Was it the Bell of the school House hidden behind the Trees or of one i of the Many churches is town beyond the Lull it ring so loudly and sounded so near that it broke through her reverie j her mind came Back to her eyes ant looked about receiving a Shock that Al most blinded her. For All the landscape i seemed in a whirl Anu Ber visions reeled i and fell like n City Over an earthquake 1 the slim Birch times thickened to dense chestnuts the branches of the pipes ran up the trunks us an umbrella runs up in opening and set themselves in a tuft High a the Nir the wooden House with its Long verandas changed to a Palace j with sculptured Stone balconies Anc crowned with thu airy Arches of u grand airs of heaven blowing about her. So and where a moment before the she went nearer the Belvedere and when Savage Wood had climbed the Hillside she saw its dark Balustrade staud out j a White Rood water came falling Down against the Blue sky began to walk slow a Foamy plunges sprinkling the leaning by to Aud fro in its Shadow. Here was her position he was u Young Beautiful and accomplished Evv i England girl Rich for her native City Bat j not Rich for Mac of the grand cities either of the new or the old world. A wealthy and ambitious aunt who had spent the greater part of life in Europe had j me brought her hero intending to time a great match for her. Margaret had gladly come abroad but bad not committed herself to the matrimonial indeed been very Cool about the Candi Date who presented himself. The Marquis was agreeable elegant Rich Flower and the masks and the cupids As it fell. She saw the splendor of it All. Aad remembered a Century old temptation so clearly that it seemed to be newly whispered in her ear All this will i give Theo i Laiing Down thou Wilt worship and of very High lineage und to was not very old. She had no serious objection to make but she had not yet been Able to consent though daily urged by Lior aunt and by the Lover himself. Aud she could say neither yes nor 110. She was too India Crent to accept and the proposition waa to Brilliant to refuse. She had seen enough of society in London Paris and Rome to be weary of taking a subordinate place. With a Coronet in the Beautiful Golden Brown hair she could become a social Power. Her Bright disdainful eyes had searched out All thu wheels and Cranks of the so civil machine raid with time and familiarity disdain was losing itself in ambition. It was a game and a Brilliant and1 exciting one it seemed to her. She was beginning to find that her Beauty was a weapon to use not merely a pretty Flower. It night pro cure her other advantages besides a Coro net. But just As her imagination was about taking fire Aad she thought "1 will carry in a half open Rose and give it to him before them All and give him a smile with it which he shall some other second thought set aside her half formed decision. Walking thus preoccupied almost tormented she became conscious presently of some sensible touch that reached her heart yet so delicately that she was not aware by what sense it entered. It persisted softly withdrawing for an instant to make its presence More clearly text on returning and at every Reid Fri the Emo Tion it caused became perceptible. Her attention at length arrested by this soft Importunity Margret Willis paused and looked around to see what it was that had set her heart murmuring i articulately like a to flier Over the Cradle of her sleeping child. It was no sight or sound though the Birds were singing their noon lullabies. It was a perfume Strong penetrating and More familiar than anything else there even while unrecognized t she stood and breathed it a moment then Bent and looked searchingly in the grass. It was Gay with Flowers of every Hue and set thickly among them and looking Over their Heads were stalks of pennyroyal the dear old new England Herb studded All along the Over the whole then gathering up her Long skirts Bhe went swiftly the House. The first breakfast Bell had Nugin Aud the other would ring in fifteen min utes. Reaching the House she was told that n gentleman was waiting in the Union for her. What an hour for a thought Dis contentedly As she went trailing thro the empty rooms to thu last where a tall Broad shouldered Man stood at a window looking out. At sight of him the blood rushed to her forehead. I am bewitched to Day am certainly she thought and walked slowly toward him not so aroused trom her former dream As to have Laid aside or thrown away the Bunch of pennyroyal she had clasped to her bosom. He turned Al the Light Rustle of her garments. His face was Palt but his manner quite Palm. How do you do he said As if he had seen her the week before. I Hope i am not How it happened she knew not but at sight of him All the old malice and mis chief woke in her heart. The intense Blue eyes which were drinking in her face die slight tremor in the deep voice the signs which told that he was to her just what lie had Ever of her again the Laughin of tyrant. Yet she laughed with Joy and was triumphant at seeing him so handsome. Her educated eyes found him finer looking than he had looked to her ignorant Ken. Do intrude awfully she said giving him Ler hand there Are two persons in the House who will be enraged at your one is your to said coldly. And the other never and get some break fast. The Bell is ringing Aud i am Hun Gry. Of you need t hesitate about the invitation we All ask whom we please. I Havu had one or two Parsons to break fast. They will already have Laid a place for be wins turning away half waiting for him when he took her hand it you Are going to marry him i will not sit at his table. Tell me Tho truth Don t play with me she had never heard his voice so passionate it was almost commanding. What is your advice about the mat she asked innocently turning once More toward him and dropping her eyes. I would advise you to marry him if you want be replied almost angrily. She looked into his face with her Sweet est smile. And if i do not want to John it i hate to and that Case we had but tar not keep breakfast he replied very quietly. They went out m the tent Hung break fast room where the company were assembled and miss Willis was edified to see very cordial her aunt s greeting of the new Coiner was alter the first in voluntary scowl of recognition. As for the Marquis a Las so truly and Grace fully courteous Liat Margaret added a Tew explanatory words to her introduction. Or. Norton was u school fellow of my she said. I have known him All my be compared thu two while they talked the Marquis was tall slender und Pale self. It shall be on the seventh Day of october that will give you nearly two months in which to fully reconcile mra. Margaret laughed. But you do not know How you will be taken if you marry she said. I have become a dreadful woman. John Don t be too much horrified but i beat my i really do. I have struck her once Witk the hair Brush and countless times with my Pohl your hand would t Hurt a said he am took Tor i moment the Sott White Hami a Vul have it a Hittle squeeze to try its Quality. It almost makes a she persisted Agnesina. I m a perfect fury when i m he looked at her seriously and saw that she was serious. It is High time and his Beautiful face had that look of that you should go Home Aad have mildness which is the result of Pride Aud culture outlier than of a mild. One might have said of this Man that his face was Calm and uru fixed not because his passions were not Strong but because of their strength which carried All be fore it. It is obstructed passion that Graves the lace. Whatever he Marquis of san Giorgio had wished to do that he had done and whatever he had wished to possess had never been Long denied him. The two gentlemen talked a Little on political subjects. John was now a senator. His ideas were quiz Clear Ami were Well expressed. To be sure Bis French was not chopped quite Fine enough he had the engl so accent in l pronounced too conscientiously All the Little words which he should Only have brushed but he spoke some Way it seemed a condescension for him to speak French at All. I must make him practice Larking with me against the time when he will be president and will have to talk with the four thought miss Willis. She saw with real gratitude Aud admiration that the Marquia perceiving to a the guest did not under stand readily More slowly and distinctly than a Cual. And sometimes re after breakfast they All went wander ing through the Large Shady rooms. Mrs. Willis fastened herself upon the new Comer and confided to him the Story of Margret s approaching marriage. Is she to he asked. Why the Marquis of course. Haven t you is he asked dryly. One to take care of he said. I m sure that you have been tormented till you Are nervous. In future Don t beat any one but me. Pansy. It in t Nice you know for a servant to see her mistress in a passion. I could understand but she would that Way was the Way Liat he always excused her when he saw that she regret Ted a fault. They walked silently along the Golden Road till they Tho great Gate. That was shut but a Little one opened und the gentleman passed through shut it and leaned u moment on the rail Fiat separated them. I can not give you anything like he said rather sadly glancing Back at the Villa. You Are sacrificing a great Deal to me. It is All Beautiful but such things do not make one s she replied. In a very Little while it becomes an old Story. Only nature keeps one perpetually i know what will keep me Perpetu ally said the gentleman. It has t begun f be an old Story to me though Ever Nace you offered yourself to Why she exclaimed indignantly drawing Back. Ever you offered yourself to me that Day when i took you out of the he went of. I Nave been por ing Over it. Good by dear it s time to go. I shall see you in three Days she looked dreamily after him. Now i could obey John Only i will never Tell him she mused. But i could never obey the Marquis. The Only place you have known this gentleman All your he asked gently but at once. Of she was beginning to feel the painful embarrassment of a woman who is obliged to refuse a Man whom she admires and who fears that be should have refused him More promptly to be sure she had expressly stipulated that her consenting to spend a week at Nis Villa should not be taken As a encouragement of his suit still she was not sorry for having come. His wife is in Rome with the Marquis pursued watching his compan Ion s cast face. Or. Norton is not she re plied. There was a moment of silence then he exclaimed How Long am i to wait for your answer Signorina if you did not know before you must know the last word and glancing to where John imprisoned in a Distant Coiner by mrs. Willis was yet watching their conversation. I can answer you now. She said. And i wish that i bad done so before. Forgive he said passionately. Then making an Effort added with gentle coldness. I would spare you the pain of on explanation 1 uni do spare me a she said with an almost pleading look in her face. Esteem you so and i should Ike to please you it i you will please me in consulting your own happiness to ans Vered with a pro id smile. He s got his thought John Norton Ami be takes it rather finely. I ought not to stay Heru any longer. I am going Back to Rome no he said some what abruptly to mrs. Willis.
