Yea;I guessed something of what had^hapia-ucd, and hen- ia my caae, on the top^of my head. Take it, pray take; leave me^ami go to her.
No,no. no! I can't do that.

Meanwhileon the froaty night we could^plainly distinguish the hupetuoua gallop^of borae and the aouiid of wbeela like the^lleree el targe ^^f a fin* brigade approacle^ing nean-r and m-an-r. They pulled ap,^however la-fon- arriving at the aee lie of^accident ami came ipiictly and cautiously^on wanl.
Ieoufeaa in all thia aad acene I waa cu^^riously anxioua to cutch a glim pat- of tlie^n-dotihtahle Nellie; but instead of aeeing^the rather masculine a|a-cimcn of woman^^kind 1 lutd imagined, with m-rvea of ateel^and arms of strength, then- ran forward a^alight and elegant girl of some eighteen^or nineteen yeara, dn-aaed without con^^fusion cm* apparent haste in a waterproof^ami hiaal.
SIm*had pna-ured from a neighboring^tipholaten-r a light eovenil spring van, on^Um- floor of which she IumI placed a^mattn-sa with many pillowa aud bbtnketa.^Her font- of assistants waa four two^elderly women uml two men, with a plen^^tiful ^supply of lanterns.

Oh.Nellie, deur,^ he aaid, ^I knew^you'll come quickly.
Oh.it must have seemed all age to^you. How hurt you must la-. Kdwanl.^Drink thia glaaa of wuter, dear.

Andthe d^M-tor will help ua, will he^not'.^'
Hewill certainly, if you will allow^him to place bimaelf under your guid^^ance.^ said I.
S-r.I thank you,^ n-plied Nellie. ^We^will lift |sair Ned now into thia van.^When- an- you hurt, dear, thut we may^uot hurt you more '.'
Allover, Nellie, all over. I know you^will take me gently.
Audwell she murahaled her fon-i-a.^Then- wi-n- altogether aeveil of ua. One^at^aal at the horses' heads to prevent a^movement, one lighted the way, aud the^n-at of ca gently lifted P^a^r Ned on to the^mattress. He lam- the operation without^a groan, although it must, indeed, have^la-en a further dose of agony. I implored^him to allow me to go home with him und^aee to hia injuries, hut he would not hear^of it.
Come to im-aa siam as you lutve fin^^ished a-ith the dear girl whose lift- ia pn-c-^^otiM toao many. Do not neglect her for a^single moment. I place her in your^hands, Pen-ival. You have the caae Im-^olf, air, thia very moment. Nellie ia a^nurse and doctor all in one, und 1 ahull la-^safe with her till you come.
Thewiae Nellie aaid: ^Oh, dia-tor! it^dia-a seem aclllah, hut come ua aoon aa^you can ; do conn-! for I feel myself thor^^oughly helpless in such a aad eaae.
Whatcould I do7 I was d-vided la-^twecti the two, ami I felt that Kith- Klliaon^had the prior right to my |aa^r aerviccn.^Nevertheless, ita we went rapidly hack to^the Cellars my heart and thoughts wen-^with Nellie and her hrother.

Ifound | a Kir Kllic ill a very had stale.^The limh was much swollen and iliscol-^on-il, ami tin- llt-ccasary operation was^tin-some ami most painful. I would fain^have waited for further assistance, hut^the urgent MM of the case admitted of^no ill-lay.
Ina very abort apace of time tin- skill of^the moat eminent surgeon in the country^was secured, anil together with tilt- family^we watched through hours of great anx^^iety. Ill tin- advanced morning, however,^wc resolved to snatch a Hying visit to^Komsey. We found him fearfully in^^jured a fractured arm, a fractured rib^anil internal injuries.
Iwas glad of the very able assistance^that waa now at hand. Hia caae ap|M-un*d^tleaia-rate, anil when we had done till, we^could only shake our heads in oiuinoiia^ailellcc.
Wereturned to the Cedura. Our |^^-^tients life hen- hung upon a very' thread:^hut my distinguished colleague waa^pleased to compliment me on my prompt^and energetic action ill the matter, saying^that if the lady lived it would Im- through^me.
Mynext can- waa to telegraph to my^partner, ami for ten days uml nights 1^watched hy the la-dsidc of Kllic Klliaon,^only varied hy hasty runs over to Komsey.^At the expiration of that time Kllic,^though atill very weak, waa out of danger^and I waa free to attend my medical^friend.
AmiNellie ami I have attended him,^und togethor have managed to conduct^hia rather large practice for the laat aix^mouths. | have visited the ft-dura daily,^and Kith- ia now t|iiitc well, uml Captain^Willouglihy, who ia constantly then- and^brimming over with gratitude to myself,^declares that he will aiain take her into hia^own keeping; ami* that he will have no^^ ^^on- glass-breaking if he cull help it.
