THE TEMP FATION OF RACHEL MOIL. 11
It was a clear , sunny September morning)
bright and cheerful. Autumn was stealing,not
striding over the tandscape, and Rachel Morri
son looked out upon a joyoua picture as she sat
within the window ot her father's house.
Iler two young sisters had spread a richly
fringed carpet beneath a verandah that was cur.
tained by clustering vines: the elder of the n had
filled a basket with the rich clusters of the pur.

little Miriam and a bounding, beautiful grey
Jiound , the pet and torment of the family. Kato
Mori ken, the tempter, would not however, se.
fer either of them to touch a single grape until
'she hed first presented the basket to Rachel; in,

and loved her the more, for that the rose was

Kate did not quite understand what uher

with tears, and so she crept silently to her side,
and looked up into her face, and felt her heart
sad Within her. A little time and the sharp

her mother, "have you forgotten poor Rachel's

that she might read the story of her dead sister.
