A year passed, and during a part of

he would have no nurse but lUehel.
As for Jason and Matilda, they were
like two i'miijly relies, held for the as
sociations with the past, but of little
present value. They had become too
old to labor much, and the captain
gave tliem a home just as bo would

tieat her tenderly.
. At first Rachel was shocked ; but iu
timu sho was able to reuso'u calmly.
She knew that sho could never love
t'apt. Bowers. She could respect him,
but as for love, sho could not even give
him a brother's' place. ' Siio fancied
that she knew what luvo .was. Had
she told her fancy t another, she would
have been laughed at. It was siiuply
that of a child a fancy reaching back
into the years when sho had romped
and played upon tho lawn with Barna
by Bowers' cubin-boy, Arthur Lee. She
icmembered Arthur Lee very well a
strong, bold, venturesome lad her
a huhtuid proved not so kind asC'iipt
Bower as a bachelor friend and pat
ron. He became pe'tibint and exact
ing ; and moreover, in the end be be
came jealous. "At first be invited
young people to his mansion (o make
his wile happy ; mid when he saw- that
their presence gave her pleasure which
his companionship could not afford, bo
drove them away.
Thus for two years.and then, Barna
by Bowers died, and wafc'buiied. His,
will was read, mid it was found ta be
very simple. By it ho left everything
of which he might die possessed to his
'beloved wife lUehel," for her use
wile she remained sigle; und in the
eveutof her marrying again, the whole
property, without reservation of any
kind, was to go to his sister rruueuce,
and through her to her heirs.
At iirst Bachel cared not for this.
She did not think she would ever wish
to marry ugain. Sho was able now to
give her tged parents a home; uud
with the gieat wealth at her command
sho fe:t tiiat hhe cuuld employ herself
in doing good among tho poor and
needy around her. fche 'remembered
(Japt. Bariinhy'u sister, Mrs.l'rudetice
Marshall, lis a tall, gaunt woman, well
advanced in life, who had visited Oak
wood several times in the other years,
but wli" iiniiy-ouucs, iii'it ilistanl
state, hud prevented her presence
since her brother's marriage. - She
believed, however, that Mrs, i'rudenee
was now a v idow, with one or two
grown up daughters on hands.
Capt. Barnaby had been dead a
year, when one pleasant day in June,
a gentleman called at Oak wood to sec
him. The stranger was a young man
not more than Cve-and-twenty tall,
robust, and handsome his garb and
his bronzed features giving token ol
life upon the sen, though the quality ot
the gatb, us well us the bearing of the
wearer, bespoke the niati of command
rather than tho bearer of service, lie
had not heard of ('apt. Bowers' death.
He hud known h'rin in other limes, and
had come far out of his way to see
hur? She dared tint.

: What One Girl Did.
' About seven year ngo I became ac-
piainted In Ohio V.i'h a young (fill
whi possessed none of this world's
fcoods except the clothes she w.'-re.
She whs iirt strong in body, and y;t
she was obliged lo tarn her living In
"working Mil'' in kitvhciis.trlwre there
was always much haul work to be
done. " ; ; ' '
The ono great desire of her heart
was to ODiain an education, for one
..w ho was so poor.this seemed utterly im
possioie. --Her out-look in lue wus
dreary enough, but s'-e JiuJ tl brave
heart. . .' ' ,-
.incr earning clothing enough to
last her one term, the went to' O
u wcrk for her board uud go to school.
She soon began to show considerable
!:ill i: penmanship; Her teacher ob
serving tiiirJ, VSfy kiiidiy gave' her ex
tra lemons iu liiij bi.'K'h of bttidy.
.S::ruh began to hope that with o;.'.1' pen
she might yet earu muro than with i
a broom or a mop.
She left school in a few mouths end
went into a country fthool dif'trkt u
try am! get up a writing e!as3. It was
hard v.'oik enough, but she "still kept
up her courage. Finally, t;ho obtain
. i .. ,i . . .
a uo,;un pupils, aim turned more
thuu sho would have d..oo iu a kitchen.
Then nil' she went to another' district
visited from house to house, and she
had a dozen pupils fjr another course
of lessons. After a few months she
was able to return to school again.
About that time I bit Ohio, tind for
years I keardiu more of Surah. Tho
past summer I'A isited the town where
I became acquainted with her. Much
pleased was 1 to learn how succesful
she bud been.
She 1ms become an intelligent, use
ful woman. For several years she bus
been in the postoffice iu the city of
C . She does the writing for th
. Uitos of A IwiUiaing. ;
