Beokey Newton with all his heart.
The real difficulty in the way, as he
more than half ruspeoed, was not no
much with himself as in his pocket.
Beky Newton had an insuperable
objection to an empty wallet. The
1aughter of a wealthy Louisiana
planter, reared in luxury, and the
recipient of a weekly allowance of
pin money sufficient to pay Fred's
whole bills for a month, she had no
immediate idea of changing her situa
ten for one of less comfort and
independence. Besides, it had been
intimated to her that a neighboring
planter of unusual uri6tooratic line
age had looked upon her with cove.

und ugly, but he was riob, and in her
tiesent mercenary state of mind Miss

hysterios on the bed. It was not alt
wrath, not all vexation, it was-not all

rceing very much akin to remorse.

hot with the recollection, "1 never
o jull live with such a man,-never I"
N hen Fred Eckerson had walked
f some of .his feelings on the piazza,
he concluded to ta'kea look a't 'the
river. The Mississippi, which flowed
within live huudred yards of the
house, was at the time nearly at the
height of its tainual "ispring rise."
Its turbid waters, rushing swiftly to
wards the sei, had nearly filled the
banks and in many places had brokei
through the levees and flooded the
lowlands for wany milem. A crevasne
of this description had been made
in the farther bank, nearly opposite
the house, and the windows of the
Newton mansion commanded a view
of a vast anta glittering inland sea,
not laid down on the maps. The
m.in current of the strealp bore upon
its colfee-colored bosotu an enormous
mass of floating timber, which was
dashed alonig in the boiling flood, ren
dering navigation wholly impossible.
Hio waters were still rising, and
the frtquent crashes far and near
told of the undermining power of the
current, as sections of the sandy
banks sucoumbed aind disappeared,
uarrying with themn the trees which
overhucg the~ stream.
New, it haeppened that by r. curi
cus ooiIti :ence, Misi Newt,.n also re
solved to look at the river. She
dried her tears,and putting on her
hat, slipped out of the back door to
avoid Fred, anid soon found herself
a the foot of a huge cotton wood tree
on the bank below the house.
Th'1rowing herself upon the grass,
and lulled by the bubbling of the
rapid flood beneath her, she soon fell
fast asleep. Had she possessed any
power of fore-seeing the future, it
would have been the last thing she
would have done, for although it
was very pleasant dropping asleep
there in the shade with the soft sun.

overhead, the awakeniing was not at

somebody's arm was around her and
she felt herself lifted up and placed
somewhere in the sunahine, though
precisely where, she was as yet too
bessildered to know. Getting her
eyies open at last, she found F?red
