I saw moro ol' Sophy's long lashes
that day than of my own plate. To
my g: ? at surprise, I was actually fall?

like a dream, and tho chair beside

I came a bevy of damsels, in the centre
of whom I recognized my present be?
trothed. Miss Crowdie, walking with
the timid assuranco of a bride, and
looking, in tho moonlight, I must
confess, fair and graceful as Diana's
self. It seemed to be an understood
thing that I was to give her my arm;
and thus it came to pass that, in the
walk down to the lake, wo were left
together, an arrangement to which
(I noticed with some relief) Miss So?
phia's exertions greatly contributed.
They were really a charming family,
on the best terms with themselves,
each other, and all around them. Wo
had a merry row, and were in the
midst of an Italian barcarole, when
Mr. Crowdie's jovial voico hailed us
from tho landing-place.
"Let's put in here," said one of the
party, pointing to a bank, on which
we could :;cf glow-worms sparkling.
As we neared thc spot, several of
the party rose at once. Tho boat
gave a sudden lurch-thero was a
shriek-a plunge-a gurgle-Miss
Laura Jane had toppled overboard,
and gone down in the deejiest
part of the lake! I tore off my coat
and plunged after, catching her, I
imagine, as she rose to the surface,
and bore hor safely to thc bank. The
poor child, though much frightened,
did not seem materially injured by
the shock. She was put carefully to
bcd, and all seemed going well, when,
somewhat later, the house-keeper
beckoned Mrs. Crowdie out of tho
A litilc after, Mr. Crowdie received
a similar summons, and it became
known that Laura Jane was not in a
satisfactory state. She had become
feverish and delirious, talking wildly
of thc accident and of lier rescue.
\ Mr. Crowdie cam* down with an
anxious look on his broad visage.
"We think, Purkiss, that she wants
I to see you."
"Me, my dear sir?*'
"Yes. Would you yaind stepping

In a*minuto or two, I was beside
the poor girl's couch; her mother and
the nurse standing opposite-her

Hushed, and her eyes, bright und
restless with fever, rolled eagerly from
face to face, till they dwelt on minc.
Then a sudden chungo came overlier.
She became calm, stretched out bei

eyes, seemed as if she would sleep,
still keeping my lingers prisoner.
"Who shall sit up with her, my
dear?" asked Mr. Crowdie. "Stop

I repeated the question.

said Miss Adelaide, gently.
"But what kind hand shall admi?
nister it?" I asked.
The large lustrons eyes turned
upon me for a moment, and were as
suddenly averted. My companion
was silent. She was drawiirg some?
thing on the gravel terrace with her
parasol, and, to my eye, it took the
form of a human heart, with a per?
foration in the larger valve. I ac?
cepted the omen.
"Miss Crowdie-A delaide!-"
She gavo a little start.
"Can 1, dare I, hope that yon. who
