The result was according to Mary's
rishes. Mr. Green was a true frieund
-of Mr. Bacon's, and he saw, in his
-daughter's proposition, the means of
?his refrornation. lie, therefore, re

The pa;.cr was accordingly drawn
aip and signed. It stipulated that
Mary was to start faor Lowell within
three weeks, and that she was to iave
two years for the full payment of the
'My brave girl!' said Mr. Green,
as he parted with Mary. 'No one
will he prouder of you than I, if you
accomplish the wvork to which you are
about devoting yourself. Happy
would I be, had In daughter with
-your true heart and noble courage.'
'Marvs heart was too full to thank
him. Buit ier sweet young face was
beaming with gratitude, as she turn

Mr. Bacon was walking uneasily,
backwards atl forwards in the old

I horrowed it of Mr. Green,' re
plied Mary, and as s!o said this, she
glided past her father and entering
into thebhouse, hurried away to her
runother. 'B-t -ere she had time to in.

iho comprehended the whole matter,

not force my child away ! Do not

Mr. Bacon caught it eagerly, and
essayed to speak some tender atnd

tittered in a sobbing voice. A fet'
'et kiss was then pressed upon heir

and staggeredi rather than walked
back into the house.

ivith her child. It was a great trial
for Mrs Bacon, buit she now fully

from Marj's selfdev'otion, and there
gIre, with her last kiss, breathed a
word (if encouragement.
"It is fur your father. Lot that
sustain you to the end.'
A few moments more, and the
stage rolled away, bearing with it the
very sunlight from the dwelling of
Mr. Bacon. Poor old man! Rest.
lessly didi he wonder about for days
afte'r Mary's departure, unable to
apply himself, except for a little while
at a time, to any work; but his in.
qrietude did not drive him back to
the cup he had abandoned. No, ie
saw in it too clearly the cause of his
present deep distress, to look upon
and feel its allurement. What had
banished from her pleasant lome that
beloved child, and sent her forth
atong strangers to toil from early
morning until the going down of the
sun? Could he love the cause of this
great evil? No! There was yet
enough virtue in his heart to save
him. L've fir his child was stronger
than his depraved love of strong
d.-ink. A few more effectual efflrts
were made to turn Mr. Green from
his resohition to hold Mary to her
contract, and then the humbled father
resignedl himself tu the necessity lie
could not overcome, and with a
clearer mind and a newly awakened
purpose, applied himself to the culture

In the nican time, Mary had en
tered one of the mills at Lowell, and
was doing her work there with a
bratve aid cheerfv! spirit. Some
pairful trials, to onie like her, at
tended her arrival in the city and
entrance upon the duties assumed.
But daily the trials grew less. and
she toiled on in t1e fulfilment of her
contract with Mr? Green, happy

I the endl of -three months, aho
came back and spent a week. How
her yoing heart boutided with Joy at

rather. Ile was not so light of word

On the very day Mary came hack,

wecount of the loan. for which lie gave
her a receipt. Then he had many
qiestimns to aRk about her situation

sispended by the absentce of Ihenry
at college, and by other circiumstanuces
that removed the two families from
itntimate contact, anid they had ceased
to think of each other except when
some remembrance of the past
brought up their images.
