hud known till now her secrets, was loft
in fgnoruime of tho wretchedness which I
felt she was encountering. As, however,
I turnrd away from tho window, I lien id

up, I saw Marion enter my room.
" D;ur Mnripn," I tuid, springing to
wards her, "this is to kind I I was just
longing lor a qukt chat with you onco
" Yes. ouce more." sho rencaleil. In k
thick husky voice, und then, resting her
head upon my lap, sho bur.t into tears,
nnd said : "Hur with me, Kutio : I shall
not troutilo unyono much longer, for my
heart Is broken. '
Thun tho tale was told : Gilford Irvine
was f.ilso ; ho had niurrled u rich wbow,
anu leu jiurion J.aigli, with ull her gen

"Wed this man, Katie I Oh ; I dread

" Then, why murrv him. durlin ?" 1
"Oh I I must," sho replied ; "or, If, not,

"Then pause," 1 replied; 'Mot not "

tlio Jjondun jiost-mnrk; but thu writing
was to blotted and ttuinid, that I could
scarcely mako It out. Upon tearing it
open, 1 siiw, however, that'it was from her
I so dourly loved, It (ontained but a few
word, but to her thoy weruii Jenlti-klicll.
'My own dear, darling Kuto:

in my heart, or unchuritablptioss !n my

From your dying friond, Marion.
This was ull. Mrs. Leigh hud deceived
