Evelyn drew a long sigh of relief at these, concluding words, catching eager- ly at the hope that her missive, im- mersed in mud and water, was safe for- ever from all prying eyes." That evening brought the lover, buoyant at his recent financial .success, full of eager delight at being again, oven after so short a separation, with his lovely fiancee.

Ho took into bis arms as gent- ly and tenderly as though she wore a weeping child'; then, releasing hor, ho pressed her hands tightly to his heart. he cried, "only bo as true to mo as 1 shall be to yon, and we may defy the evil omen of a postponed mar- riage." Another moment and ho was gone. Talcotl's absence proved of shorter duration then ho anticipated. When ho reached his homo in tho oast, his father was dead. And in less than three weeks from the time of his de- parture, he was again in San Vrancisco. The postponement of the marriage was therefore unnecessary. Despite his be- reavement, Miss Tracy was strenuously opposed to a private wedding; but ho showed himself so resolute on this point that she was forced to compro- mise with an agreement that she should be married in tlie costly dress prepared for the occasion. This disappointed still rankled, even on the afternoon of iho marriage, when she awaited, with I'alcot and a few intimate fiiends. tho arrival of the priest before proceeding to tho parlors.
