Miss Foster. I have been telling her
of your brave repentent life "
"She cannot forgive!" faltered

guilding angel. Mrs. Warrington led
Rufus Blair to the little home next
door, into its best room and closed
the door as she retired.
A woman advanced toward him
with radiant face and outstretched
arms she of the frosted window
panes, his lost wife.
