I was much interested and i doubt not instructed with your article last week headed a seed time and its labors a a More particularly that portion of it referring to carrots As i Hare been attempting the culture of them for two or three years recently. And without claiming anything like proficiency in Ray own knowledge of their cultivation and being perfectly aware that in this As Well As in All other branches of agriculture we Are in comparative ignorance a allow me to take exceptions to one or two of your suggestions in the above mentioned article. And first As to the time of sowing. You say a they should be sown As Early in May As the season will my own limited experience teaches me that in Ordinary seasons the first week in june for our Vicinity is preferable for the reason that if put in before the ground is fully warmed the seeds Are so Long in germinating that the weeds Are very Apt to get the Start of tie plants and completely choke them More especially if the season happens to be at All wet. I plow in a heavy coat of manure As Early in the Spring As possible to the depth of 14 grow can scarcely do belter than to set a grape Vine of the Concord Isabella or Diana varieties. The first Cost is Trilling and the after care of them More of a pleasure than a task. The grape is not ouly palatable and nutritious for those who Are Well but is sex Chat Tab i.

Us Lana Lasso on the Western Balcony of Falconer Hall stood two figures. The on was a Young Man tall and slight. His Frame however was firmly knit and every muscle every mud Ana a Iuva seemed instinct with a separate Livia. His was rather an italian than an English face. His Long dark Curling hair was parted in the Centre and rippled Down Over either shoulder. His Black unfathomable eyes were full of a slumbering passionate fire and his moustached upper lip was proud self reliant and determined and yet his was also the face of a poet. It kindled up with a kind of inspiration which made its Beauty Stem almost superhuman As he watched Tho Sunset. But Jessio fal Montt standing close at his Side never noticed it. She was very Young and very fair at least so every one said who looked on the daughter of the widowed master of fal of once Hall in her fresh innocent loveliness. She had Sweet and yet classical features chiselled not too severely after the grecian Model. Her hair was of that Light Peculiar tint that poets sail Golden and her eyes Wero Blue As the auro Satin d her standing by Paul Era Stein a Side she turned away her Guzo from Tho glory of Tho Sun set and the More wonderous glory of Bis face in the flush of inspiration. A Gay Young Cavalier reined up his fiery Steed before Tho Balcony and doffed his plumed hat bending Hie head Well nigh to Bis Saddle Bow. His face was handsome rather than Beau till. The greatest Charm was in the look of Sunshine that danced in and out of Tho Hazel eyes lurked roguish by in the twists and kinks of his Brown hair and played Hido and go seek in the Corners of that expressive Mouth. He was col. Falconers Nephew and Ward a and his Puro English descent was unmistakable.

For More than an hour Thoy played Jessie coolly carefully skilfully foiling Hor master with Tho very weapons to had taught her to use. Paul Ernstein wildly and Yot with such earnestness As Ono would Havo who Felt that his Utako was infinitely precious. Philip a Clio looked on with a smile of assured and easy Triumph. At last laughing gaily Tho Maiden clasped her Small Whito hands upon Hor knee and said exulting by a a chock mated master Paul Ernstein made no reply for a few moments. Resting his fico on his hand he Bent eagerly Over Tho Board. There was no help Movo where to would Tho Ioc Orsble Check Mato stared him in Tho face. At length pushing Tho Board from him to Roso and walked out upon Tho Balcony. Tho stars were Over him Calm Puro Long enduring. Lie lifted toward Thorn his Gate wild with a struggling impatient human despair. And behold looking downward Iron afar each Palo Star Soemod to answer him mockingly a a behold How impotent Aro your watching and your prayers Thoy bring no tears nor any dimness to Tho car out Oyes of Star or woman a with something almost Liko terror Jessio Falconer land seen him go Forth with Tho passionate grief darkening Shadow Liko Over his proud of turns and now despite 1 the coast near his cast Loand How to wont Jessie s mind Bat she quickly banished it new Bliss had no room for doubt and so Sho suffered him to encircle her Waist with his a in and Chase away the Swift winged hours with rapturous vows and visions of the future the while Paul Ernstein paced to a of fro in his lofty lonely room battling with his despair or leaning Bis head far out of his Wido opened window going on the Mae heaven mocking with All his starry Beauty Tho Deao latino of Bis life Whoso Star had set with no Hope for the dawning. That night when Jessie Falconer stood More in Maiden purity within her Chain but to he wore a troth Kisa upon her lips and on t Finger a ring Bloh he new glitter a or Siuw. Bat on which she loved to look. Even then in the full tide of her new Joy she was not unmindful of the proud Bsmith breaking for her Sako. She took Tho Glove be had coveted from her toilet and placed it carefully in a secret drawer of her writing desk and Thon kneeling in Tho Starlight Sho prayed for both her betrothed and Itin whom she called her brother. The next morning Long before Tho earliest Dawn rays blushed on Tho Hill tops Paul Ernstein Rodo Forth on his Coal Black Steed from the arched Gateway of Falconer Hall. No Wakeful Oyes watched Bis departure from its balconies no a kerchief flute Rod from its turrets. Alono to wont Forth in Tho silence of the still Gray morning. Will to Over Roturna in stir ii.

The Swift winged hours went by of a Long dream of pleasure to Jessio cheerfully Hor Gray haired father had consented to Tho wooing of his sister s Philip with Alt his Gayety proved for the nonce a most chivalrous and Dov Tod Lover. They took Long rides Over the Bills Long walks Over Tho moorlands and this now Pago of Jessie s life seemed so flooded with heavens own Sunshine her eyes could hardly look on it but through a Mist of Happy tears. All this time Thoro came no word nor message from Paul Ernstein. Thoy heard of him occasionally in his solitary Homo. Thero was a tale of a Large ship stranded on for the Root. After the Plant is set scatter on Straw manare or leaves and through the summer occasionally throw upon this the contents of Tho tubs on washing Days. A. J. Downing late editor of Tho says a a a i getting the lumps All to pieces As it is i conceive of much More importance in the Root crop than with Grain. When prepared in this manner 1 take a Cord and draw across the lot to be sown on have aeon the Isabella grave produce 3000one Side which gives a straight Lino for the Fine clusters of Well ripened fruit in a sea first Row. Then take a Marker made so a son by the Liberal use of soapsuds from to make the Marks 14 inches apart which i Tho weekly i think is about right for soil made sufficient the effect of soap Suda of other plants is by Rich and no other should Over be put to surprising. A Eye in Vine which had re roots. Let the outside Lom Holthe Marker Maine stationary fora fortnight when about two inches High immediately commenced growing after a Good watering with soapsuds and grew about six inches the first five Days. With a Little care this May All be Well done by any one who has never attempted it before. Under this treatment in the course of three or four years you will be amply repaid by a most Beautiful crop of luscious grapes and a Vino greatly ornamental to the ground and dwelling. Pack to. The grape Vino bleeds Road run by Tho line and thus you have a straight Row to commence with. Next time across. 1st one outside tooth of lha Marker run in the last Row an j so on. If your Row get crooked draw your line across Tho Field again which will soon straighten when a few rows Are thus marked take your Machino and follow Tho Marks allowing the Marker to be Only a few rows ahead to the Row can be readily distinguished. I consider the great secret in raising carrots successfully is in weeding them the first time a the season. A Day or two delay at this period will certainly be the by. Never prune at All until the Vito has grown one or two years for it Nettl the Aid i Means of losing the whole crop especially of the Small branches in order to push for if the season be wet. Ward Large and vigorous roots. Late in of i have Seldom known a Man but failed in Tober or in november a a proper i a i respect on his Firat trial.

As the fruit grows on new Wood 1wj i harvested 550 bushels in 1854, 1200 every year in pruning it is necessary to Cut Back the branches to within two or three eyes of the main Stem. The cultivator Wilt find Plain directions in Colt t fruit Rook which costs but fifty cents and it will enable him the see the whole operation ill Atra Ted by engraving. Never Pinch off the leaves to Aid the ripening of the fruit As they Are placed there for the very purpose you desire to accomplish.

As you remark i consider the raising of roots and feeding them on the farm one of the most soon Essul Means of raising our land in our Power. If 15 or 20 tons of Good feed can be raised from an acre which for feeding qualities a As Good As that amount of Hay Why ought of this to satisfy any intelligent Farmer of the tract ability of the thing.

Most overthrown. Philip of Philip cried Tho Young girl watching him with a scream of terror and at the sound of her voice Paul Ernstein turned round and fixed his eyes searching t Pon her. Recovering a Little from her fright she smiled though her Laco was a till very Pale and then bending Over the Balcony eke entreated a Promise to Only Promise to Cousin Phil you will never venture that again. You might try it onco too n nay Jessie Cousin mine i must Hare a bribe. Give me that White Rose Bud in your hair and i Paul Ernstein listened breathlessly. That very afternoon the White Rose Bud had been refused to his own prayers and would she give it to another before his eyes ? a a be generous a she answered laughingly a a and Promise what i ask for Knightly Courtesy to to. A a nay nay the bribe a and he looked up once More with a Milo of confident Assurance. Paul Ernstein watched Tho scone with Bis whole soul looking from his eyes. The Maiden saw him and her fingers trembled but she slowly unfasten and Tho Rose and bending Over the Terrace let it fall. The Gay Cavalier underneath caught it pressed it gallantly to his lips and then is Steno it in the band of his slouched hat and looking upward uttered his thanks. At that moment Tho wind blowing around to West Wing of the Hall swept the Blossom off from its Stem and Down before the foot of Philip Leelier a Charger. All three Taw it he there pure and White and to the Young men who had both striven for it so prec on but to fore Young Metlio could disengage his feet from the stirrups Paul Ernstein had swung himself Over Tho Balustrade and let himself Down by one of the smooth pillars on which. The Balcony was supported and at Tho peril of his own life gathered up to half crushed Blossom from under Tho trampling Bools of the Hunter. A a bravely done a cried Philip Leslie involuntarily As Ernstein springing aside treasured Ohwa not this prophetic a the Flower for which he had dared to much in his bosom. A a bravely done and Yoo May sure or Kaep what you have won at risk of life and but Paul heeded him not he was look ing upward toward the Balcony where Jessie Falconer Bent smiling Over her Sweet face which had turned to Pale when even a fancied danger threatened Philip beaming Ladroot nov. He sighed bitterly and turned away. That evening the three Aat together in the spacious drawing room of Falconer of col. Falconer in his Arm chair at the Oriel window had drowned into sleep and Jessie in a mood of teasing eos retry was chatting merrily with her a Cousin Young Erwn Aein of Kyve Upwood rat for n half boar in silence but bespoke at length the clasping hand of Philip Leslie which would Havo restrained her Sho Roso and followed him. Going to his Sido Sho Laid Hor hand upon his Arm and looked up at him with her smiling Oyes. Paul a Sho said gently a a cherished Friend brother Paul to withdrew for it a Tho touch of the slight fingers which Lay All too sister Liko upon Bis Arm. A a and that is All to cd claimed with passionate Fervour. A a Jessie was it for this Only i Havo waited and prayed All these years watching you grow up to womanhood Only to hear you Call to brother v you have known my Lovo you must have. You have trilled with it less than woman that you Are How much less than in Angel i had deemed you. Jessio Falconer for your fair Trail Sako i Havo lingered hero months and Yoars taming my proud will to your lightest fancies and you Beautiful do Civ or looked on and triumphed nay do not answer me do not say you dreamed not of my Lovo. Tho very stars of heaven could not to half so Blind a again that Light touch rested upon his Arm and once Moro she said a a Paul a even now the word fell with no love cadence on his eat but it calmed and subdued him. That single utterance told him so Many things. Lie Felt that her fresh Young heart Loving his As a sister had indeed been unconscious of Tho passion of his own. No bitter words could Havo reproached him for his unjust harshness half so offo Lually. No to whom Sho had Given so much in giving a Sisters Lovo to Tho to often protector of her girlish timidity Tho recipient from boyhood of a fathers guiding care from Hern Oblo sire bad brought to tears to those Bonny winsome Blue Eye by his unmanly harsh Era. Very humbly to spoke at length bending Over her in the Starlight. A a Jessie loved one i meant it not. You Aro Puroy you Are True you never wronged me in thought or deed. I was less than Man to reproach you. Forgive me Only aay that you forgive me and i will go Forth from your presence to Como Back no More until i too can calmly speak and boar to word a a my Stater and my brother a a the tears which bad gathered in Jessie Falconer s Blue eyes fell unheeded glittering like pearls on the atone floor at her feet. Evon to her it was very Tad this parting with Tho companion of to Many Jean and yet she realised that it was Best for both to Sha Only said timidly a will you have Tho Glove brother Paul 1�?� a a nay Carissima not until i Hare won it. I will Como Back when i am stronger and play another Gamo of chess for Tho tiny Gage. You will keep it till then for my Soke. Jessie i thought to part calmly but i cannot i have loved you so. God bless in heaven bless you my love he clasped her in one passionate the first it Wae be Felt it must be the Hist. He kissed lips Cheek and brow and the lids drooping Ovet her winsome Eye and then putting her hurriedly from him he strode away to Hie own apartment. It was Long Ero Thieo two met again. Going within Jessie Falconer Felt her band tremble in Tho eager Laip of Philip Leslie. A Paul Ernstein has asked your Lovo know Jessie Darling who said with a tone of assured and permitted fondness a a and my heart tells me to asked in vain. It is time i told you in words what your soul knew Long ago. I Lovo Yon Jessio and a a he paused watching the but thee Crimen Over her Young Cheek and then continued Quot sad Jessie i love you not in vain a an unwelcome thought which Wae Al most a conviction that the was giving up the greater Lovs for the Lene swept through you god Jessie in of Brake. Forth and with a might almost superhuman succeeded in rescuing Tho passengers from the wreck and Tho storm. Tho accounts of him Wero so vague they Wero Little Moro than legends but they gladdened Jession a sisterly heart and made old col. Falconer Prou of Bis word. Tho lovers had been for six months to trotted for colonel Falconer bad stipulated that their marriage should to defer Rod one year when Philip a Clio was summoned to Tho dutch War. It was in Tho reign of Charles ii., and Tho War had Boon for Somo Timo commenced before Tho regiment of which Young a Clio was commander was summoned to Tho Sceno of hostilities. Jossie Falconer was a Loving woman but site had a woman a Enn Tompt for cow Nardico and inaction. Far sooner would Sho Havo clasped her lovers Helmot and sent him Forth to Tho fight than kept him when glory called for Doc moment by her Side in inglorious inactivity. Their parting was tender As lovers parting Are. They went Forth together in Tho morning Sunshine and stood upon Tho Balcony and Moro than onco Tho handsome Soldier whispered Tho vows that Mado him Hor own forever. Then Thero was a last embrace Tho clinging of warm Whito arms about his Nock and a passionate cry a god bless you my wife my Jessie and god judge Between us and condemn to if i am not Truo and worthy of your then unwinding those clinging arms to sprang Down Tho Steps and Rodo away. Sho stood Thero watching him with tearful Oyes. His White Plumos flute Rod in the sunlight his High settled Stoid Amblod joyously along Tho winding Road and something that was almost Triumph Blont with Bis sadness Cron As he turned for a lost look at Tho tearful Foco bending toward him from to Balcony. Already for Somo time Paul Ernstein bad been numbered among Tho combatants a Paul Ernstein poet and Warrior Evon Tossio Falconer a pro coup cd heart fluttered with a thrill of Pride As Sho listened to the rumours of his prowess Aud remembered that this Man to whom so Many souls did homage Hod sought albeit it was vainly for her lot. Many months passed to Jessio months of anxious waiting to Philip of struggle and turmoil and Endeavor. At last the Poco of Buda was declared. And now English eyes eyes of wives Oyes of mothers and Sisters turned longingly hopefully toward Tho absent. Now Jessio Falconer watching ceaselessly Over the Rick Couch of her father trembled timidly at thought of what Banda would so soon help to smooth his pillows. Sickness had Falls heavily upon the Bravo old colonel Falconer and reduced almost to Tho helplessness of a child be Lay dependent upon his daughters nursing. Bat every Day Mora and More wearily he would murmur a Why is not Philip Here it it not weeks Rico you told me peace waa concluded i worm Cain give you to Biske aping before i go to my Long real in tha vault of the falconers a and Jessie would answer trying to soothe har own heart with tto belief Quot he win be Hen to Morrow Dearest the Moon Roso Bright Over the level shores of Belgium. Clearly revealed to the Eye by its loll beams stood two who Wero evidently lovers. Tho lady was Young and fair but Prood and stately in Hor Beauty. Her figure was slight and tall and her Light tresses Wero braided like a of Orosel above the Lolly brow Whereon natures own hand had stamped the Patent of nobility. Bat Spile of the loftiness of the Opper too there was about the month a lurking love of Power a something that was almost selfish nest Beto Kening a Resolute self seeking at what Ever Cost of pain to others. And yet there was a look of passionate tenderness in the Large Blue eyes fixed so earnestly upon her companion. He was an officer in English uniform no other than Philip Leslie. But a Wilder love than had Ever thrilled his heart for his far away betrothed spoke in every glance he turned upon the Maiden at Bis aide. Quot it Muir be Maud a he said earnestly Quot without you life would to worse than wretched and Loving you so madly my hand would to but a pledge of life Long Sor Row to my he Bent Twa her and i a a a to to it Waist Wii his Arm. She withdrew herself with a old Prid. Quot nay Captain Falconer a she said vory calmly in spite of her love Quot nay How Many times have i told you this must not to. My Hub amps Arm must to the first to Umbraco me my Hus Barutt lips press the first kiss upon a a they shall i am resolved at lost. The struggle is Over. You shall be my Bride to Morrow morning and then in your love my wife my idol i will forget Jessie Falconer As i Pray heaven the May forget a momentary look of Triumph flashed from the Maidens eyes and then veiling them with Hor Long lashes Alto murmured Philip Leslie thought with All the timidity of love a a it is wrong i know it is but to love each other so. Perhaps it is not worse to wrong Ono Maidens heart who cannot Lovo As to do than to wreck the happiness of both our lifetimes for i know you Lovo me Tho next morning there was a bridal in quiet Chapel and the handsome bridegroom stood Belore Tho altar a perjured Man. There was a triumphant glitter in the brides Largo Oyes As she wrote he name for Tho first time a a Maud Leslie a and turned not away from her husbands passionate kiss. Win 1 it Quot of alas it is to it was the Calm love of a brother. God forgive me that i strove to win Jon Puro heart in return. We had grown from childhood and 1 who had seen no other one to fair could not but look pm your Beauty Jessie i Cha not write about it of slyly it wis All wrongs Mouths ago met Maud Heinrich and then for that first time i realised the wild Ness part Sopato ill absorbing of Jessie i Suu aled fearfully with my c it i p t e Iii.

Alb but u. Cams. It was Midnight and old colonel Falconer Lay dying. The death Angol Whoso wings had fanned him harmlessly on Many a Battle Field had sat Down by his bedside now. Hut to did not fear nor outside the wind blew wild eerie blasts or swept like the crash of contending armies through Tho old Oaks of Tho Park. Tho Young Moon was hidden by Clouds hanging Low and heavy Black Banne Rols of the night. Tho old Man Lay very peacefully with his fair Young daughter beside him and Tho Wax tapers burning cheerfully at his Beds foot. Little he heeded Clouds or winds going Forth Slone to hat far country where Nove Moro winds of Earth might fan Bis brow. Quot i had thought who said at length Quot tha Philip would be Horo before i died that i could give Yon to his Protection and your grief Over my memory would be easier to Bear lightened by the now Joy of n wife. But this might not to. His footsteps linger Long and 1 must Sot Forth on my journey. My Othor child Paul Ernstin wanders Over foreign land far away from the Castle of his fathers and i must leave you alone my timid Blossom. But your Blue eyed Mother has waited for me Many a year and Day beneath the Mould and now Sho must wait no longer. Holding Hor hand i must Cross Tho unseen River and Drift outward on Tho scoreless sea of to avens a great future. Mary Angel hearts wife i am coming. One kiss Ray child my Jessie. We will watch Over you if we May to paused but Jessie seemed to hear his voice still. So gently had to drowned into death that she know not to had departed. Something almost like the Light of youth Lay warm about the Mouth and the smile whose flossing bathed Thieo features growing so old and still in death that told in that hour of the Banka of the unseen River there had Beau a meeting the patient and Long enduring love had met its Roward True and faithful with lips no other kiss had Ever Eri manned Tho husband walked beside the wife of Bis youth. It was Long before Jessie Falconer awoke to Asenso of her bereavement and then when they would have led her from the dead she arose and walked without sigh or moan to her own chamber. Sho waited there Calm and motionless until on the High Couch with its Black hangings they Laid the body in state for its burial and then calmly she went Back and sending Forth All others sat Down Braido it. It was High noon of Tho next Day Refus ing to take food or rest Abe Aat there still never once turning away her gaze from that cold dead face. Her old nurse entered unperceived and going up to her Side Laid her hand upon her should or. But she started away almost in terror at the White passionless face that mat her vision. A a letter my lady a Ahe Asid timidly Quot which i thought you might look at even mechanically Jessie Falconer look the missive and glanced at the Well known superscription. Then motioning away her attendant with a look of something More like her former self in her eyes she broke the Seal of Philip Leslie s letter.

Three Long lonely years had passed Over the Heiren of Falconer Hall. Ono who had seen her when her troth waa plighted to Philip Leslie would scarcely Inow Hor now. The country people round adored her almost a a Saint. Sho was so gentle when Sho came among them with her Palo Sweet face and her deep mourning Robes. The sick listened to her tones gladly As a released prisoner to Bird noles and waterfalls the Little children climbed fearlessly to her knee and the very blossoms that she cherished seemed to grow fairer. Bui save these rustic neighbors who Camo to her with All their Humble Hopes and wishes Falconer Vilall was deserted. Sorrow had a notified without emitter pig a to mistress. For Many months the ghost of her great grief had walked with her hand in hand. It had stood with her on the White seashore Aat by her aide at the Board and Laid Down by her Al night tide eloping her in its cold Arma. But h had pawed array from her gradually and now her present self looked Back to it with a kind of pitiful Wooder. Site saw Philip Leslie to he waa and Ahe would not comprehend her old love for my. 8c different was he Ftera the spirits of be great and gifted with whoa her later Yuan had held Coin Muniroe that she almost blushed for the love dream of her youth. An now she letter which came to Rae As i sat beside the Corpse of my dead father gave me a terrible a Hock. I thought then it was the Shock of a of vows it proved to to the Shock of teak Fng. Tho years since then Hare changed me. What i loved Liten i could not lore now. I thank god and you that my nature is free to seek alone its highest development. You Hare thought of a sorrowfully my Cousin for i know your kindly nature. But Etall sorrow pass now and be Happy. I hear that your wife is fair and Sweet. Kiss her Blue eyes with a Sisters kiss for the absent ?t1 Philip Leslie was living at Interlachen with his Beautiful wife when this letter reached him. He had never revisited England since his marriage. His married life bad been far from the dream of Joy he had pictured at its commencement. His stately Maud had fulfilled Tho Promise of her lower face and proved selfish passionate and exacting. Many times his thoughts had reverted lovingly to the old dream till he feared to utter Jessie falconers name lest his heart should whisper that the first love was truest after All. He had acquired the German habit of smoking incessantly Sod to sat on a shaded Bank at a Little distance from the House with Bis favorite Meerschaum when Bis wife brought him Jessie falconers letter. She bad broken Tho Seal and held Tho Sheet open in Hor hand. His heart thrilled As he never thought to feel it thrill again at the sight of Tho Well known handwriting. Quot there a said his wife with an ill of needled sneer 11 read that and your anxiety May be satisfied that your first love did no to die for your Sake. A woman a Ideal does change a she grows Vidor. 1 have Felt that for some the lost part of her speech fell unheeded on his ear to intently waa be pursuing Tho letter. Thank god he said fervently when to had read it through a Hank god that the at least is Happy a that i Havo no ilm Liu it i in my it of a i Usu As you did your own you would Liko to add a said Maud hauntingly and then Sho laughed a laugh Moro bitter to Philip Les lies cur than any word. So jarring to disagreeing has passed All their life Sinco until the wife Ridden englishman and his German Fraaz Are the a Tapio gossip of half the watering places la Germany. Tho same evening on which her letter reached her Cousin Philip Jessie Falconer sat Alono in her Little Bower chamber. She had been looking Long and wistfully at a Rose tinted Glove which she had taken from a drawer in her Escrito ire. Many times of Lute had so looked thus on the Little Gage for which Paul Ernstein had played hit last Gamo of chess in vain. Paul had a Power Over her in these latter Days which no other had Ever acquired and not uns Eldom had the tiny Glove Beon moistened by her tears. Perhaps every life has a lost paradises one that we Havo left behind us going Forth to Pluck some Apple of Sodom and coming Back Havo found its gales dosed such was the lost love to Jessie now at length she understood Paul Era Stein s poet soul. Once in life she had met what so few women Ever meet and living the actual realisation of All her life a highest dreams and with girlish recklessness she bad Oast from her this1 Pearl of great Price a to fill her duping fingers with Brief roses. Sho Felt it All now. She saw How much higher and Richer still might have been her life with a second self to share All its purer aspiration and almost imperceptibly to herself she had grown to love Taul Einstein not indeed with the tra Naiel yet absorbing wild net of her first drum but More deeply More in daringly with womanhood a deep springing death leu love. Nor did Ahe strive to conquer this pase iou hopeless u her heart told her it must Ever be. It seemed to her but the concentration of All her worship for the True sad Beau Tiff i and gifted and there we in cherishing it a Joyful sorrow. It made her no lera the goalie and sympathising Friend of her Humble tenants Tho kind mistress Aud the Earnest Atud Tat. And Yal it we warm and Strong in her heart this evening u she Bent her tear dimmed eyes Over the Glove clued in Bor fingers. It we to hour in which she had accustomed herself to be allow and Ahe looked up with gentle Surprise it the intrusion of nurse Marths. A gentleman Waits to see you a the drawing room my lady a raid her old attendant. Mechanically Jessie Falconer arose with a silent wonder who could thus Bare intruded on her Long Solitude. She glided quietly Down Tho stairs with Hez Pale face and mourning robot and found herself to the pretence of Paul Ernstein. She bad received from him no line or Meuse since Belt last patting but Sho bad Beard from others that he we unmarried still and living upon his paternal East of Ravens Wood.
