Madgo. His oldest brother-in-law,
Mr. Hatherton, was invitod to remove
to Elmwood, ami superintend both the
education and tho affairs of tho young
heiress until sho was suitably married.
This marriage was also provided for
by tho provident Mr. Morton. At his
death ho gave a sealed letter to Madge,
which she was to open on her eigh
teenth birthday, and which would re
veal to hor tho namo of tho happy
gontloman ho wishod to bo her hus
band. Madgo's birthday was reckoned the
day upon which sho was left nt tho
hall, tho first of May, and tho morrow
would bring tho sovouteouth May-day
she had seen at Elmwood. Mr. Hath
orton had vory gladly left his city
houso to rosido at tho old family man

for it was the finest pl tco in tho
country, and a favorto resort of all

returned from a tour through Europe,
and had hastened to pay his respects,

Again and again Emanuol led her
