drowned, John. Aud thu dream was so
real, I'm so glad youv'e come, nobody

nothing but work from morning till
night, morning till night."
Mr. Fanning gave his sister one look
and started for the doctor.
"She's worn out," said that personage
when he appeared two hours after.
"There's nothing special the matter but
she doseu't have perfect quiet and
great care you'll lose her,"
"I believe folks think women are made
of iron," he muttered, taking up his med
icine cuse and drawing offhis lisle gloves.
'iYou can give her this, once iu two

"Oh Aunt Milly she will die ?" plead

Milly's heart ached more than once as
she listened to the Vague words of the
sufferer. The sick woman fancied her

talked lo him of her loneliness.
"Your father only cares about bis
