He thus came to know young

Dr. Hai graves was a widower and
in poor health. The light of his eye
niui the joy of his heart was his
laughter May. A sister oversaw the
house, but the doctor used to say that
jm uuuguier oversaw mm. Tin? friendship
between them was almost seillah.
Miss May's handHome face attracted
many, but she received them all us

use, after u bit, the lather thought he
letected more than usual interest, and
ie was secretly pleased. Me knew j
hat bis ailment must carry him off at j
he end of a few years, and be hoped j
he daughter's future would be set '
led before the dark day came.
The doctor and bis daughter wore i
