Glancing from the window at the sound of a Quick step on the gravel Wulk. A a Here is the doctor. You re All ready i must run Aud get my dress As she disappeared through Oue door. Doctor Thayer a it eared at the other and stood there a moment silent and smiling looking at his Bride who blushing by allowed his inspection. Doctor Thayer would not have been much Over thirty Aud perhaps was scarcely that Uge.

To right away now Aud give mrs.

It Wasny to a very pleasant episode in the midst of Tbs bridal party particularly As not one of the ladles presen i had had Scarlet fever which was probably the disease that threatened their Young visitor. But the company began to arrive Ami in n few Minuto they had enough to think of besides sickness mid poverty. Meantime Hose Hauler went downstairs and was about going homeward As she had been hidden hut late plane was too Attr Arlve and Home too repelling.

Wilson saw tho child leave the Yard and glancing about to be Bure that he wus not observed he went out und followed her. He have told Why but this Little pauper no ways Drew him of a Load Stone draws. Lie followed her led Liy an irresistible attraction. The boy was romantic and imaginative. I Erh ups he knew that the a Lender Little creature who hesitated Aud followed along before him was shaped like an Ideal form. May lie he could perceive some i Cauty in the exquisite Bare feet in late Low smooth brow beneath those glorious eyes shining so radiantly in the Small red Mouth in the shy Sweet Earnest ways which had a touch of that premature Fusil Natilou which is often called natural coquetry. He had often seen this Little girl All the people about knew her and though Pride had prevented his speaking to her it had not prevented ills being bewitched by her. A a How Queerly she acts a he thought Mcclug her Stop Aud reel about. He had not known of the scene up stairs. Even while to spoke she stopped Short and putting her hands up to her head gave a faint cry. A what is tho matter v Are you sick a asked the boy run Long to her. The Clung wildly to his hand and leaned her burning face against it. Quot of Yea my head goes round Aud round Quot she cried. He attempted to Lead she could not walk and after a few minutes he bravely took her up in his arms and with her face nestled into his neck carried her Down the Hill. At the foot of the Hill the Broad Road made a turn to the right but a narrow Oue led to the left Aud into that the boy walked with his moaning Burden. There were Woods at both sides for a few rods then they opened at tho right and there stood a Large Brick House with a Plain Gross plut in front and a wooden rail Fri ice next the Roud the Bare Bleak look of every Fhlug uttering a striking contrast to the charmingly adorned residences All about of which they had occasional glimpses through the Trees. Hushing open the Gate with his foot muttering at the same time some word of pity for the child Charles Wilson approached tho front door of the Bouse just As it opened showing a coarse and hard looking Matron a tailing within.

In giving her up Charles saw the note clenched in Hose Nutler a hand and read it aloud a a illness my stars i Quot cried the woman in affright. Quot do right away or. Charles. You la catch the and she unceremoniously shut the door in ills face. A hour Little Der Bhem la die assure As Fate a he sadly muttered leaning on the Fence and looking sorrowfully up at the front of that abode of sorrow. The House at which lie looked and which Little Rose Hauler called Home was the poor House. There were hut very few town poor in Paxton but these few lifter the infamous custom which Mokes our town charities an injury and an insult to those who Are obliged to Avail themselves of them had been Given in charge of the lowest bidder and they fur cd accordingly. The Warrens were a hard Money getting childless couple who did not feel called upon to feed paupers out of their own pockets but who looked that their charges were kept clean and presentable to visitors. That done their duties were done. Hose Hauler had been with them two years. Her Mother had come Thuxton to Jursca sick lady bringing her child with her and had Fullen sick Aud died suddenly it her employer a House. There was no one to take charge of the Little girl and their search found no relatives. It was a pity but there was nothing to do but to Send her to the poor House. To an Ordinary poor House they would on no account in pc sent the child who was a Dainty Little thing and whose Mother was evidently a Laily but then this House was a Model of its kind and mrs. Warren was a very excellent to said the Burkhardt family at whose House the Mother had died and who had already been Sufall Clenty troubled in the matter and did not want to lie bothered with the child. Mrs. Warren would teach her to sew and keep House and when she should to old enough they would give her employment. To tho Rich family living in splendor in a House that was almost a mince mud with Only one son to claim their care washed their hands of the whole affair. A Gold framed locket containing a miniature which had Lieen around the woman a neck when she died a Pearl ring which she wore and a Little Gold watch with a Spray of Pearl Lilles of the Valley on the Back they kept to give the child when she should tie old enough to take care of them. For the rest mrs. A Burkhardt Felt that she was very charitable and very condescending indeed if when she was driving that Way she ordered the Footman to go to the door of the poor House and ask How the Little girl was getting along. There were no other children then at this establishment and of course the children of the Rich people would not Piny with her and Hose had u lonely time of it. But she had not much work to do and aside from poor and insufficient food and having to sleep alone in in Tuc where she sometimes could not sleep for have lived a pleasant enough animal As she listed in coiled in a sunny window in the Winter. Hut children need company even More than adult do and the child s lonely life was telling on her wearing her out saddening her making her imaginative and morbid. The was ready for the fever when it came and it clenched her us some Tierce wild creature might. There had been no mothers Eye to note the growing symptoms to see that the child refused even her Poauty food
