The young girl's worship of her broth

died close to him on every oceasion, and
her dark eyes bespoke adoration when
ever his name was mentioned in her
presence.
"If he doesn't come back pretty soon

"Then If he wa)ts to see me he'll have

He's too disgustingly poor."

reprimanded her mistress sternly.
- "You are not supposed to know any

At list she no longer could curb her
limpatlence and anxiety. She deliber

she asked, bravely plunging Into deep

"Almost? Well, yes, I'll confess that

I could long for any one as iuich as
I- Oh11, well, there's no use hlding it
