To got up in the morning
And hear the baby squall,
To hear my husband snoring,
And then have Katie call:

Then comes a larger squall.

And find there's nothing in:

And I begin to fcc: at rest.
Think of Katie and lier brother,
With thc baby, to be drest.
This, together with thc dinner,
And Mrs. Barton's call,
Is enough to drive one frantic;
Hark: 1 heard baby fall.
While I try to miiet baby.

And says. "Do hurry, Mary"- -

As snug as any mouse.

I but I would, at least, have the conso?
lation of knowing that I was not sin?
"Two months I passed in this
weary battle of conquering'self. Ont

Good heavens! it dropped from my

was no clue to the murderer. Tilt

"A few days after this terribh
catastrophe, Edouard visited me. Hi

j least to mo-of a grief he did no

Was natural that in this dreadfu
hour he should turn to me. We sn

I 'terrible calamity.' He had offere
I large sums for the arrest of the mm

been plunder, as several valuabl
jewels were missing; thc bridal rinj
too, was gone.
"After that night, he never rever:

after, I stood before thc altar to tak
