"No donbt of that, Aunt. Bat never mind;

"I liopojounia), Dlck I hopo and trust

with a dismal and foreboding expression. " 1

loved her, and I loved her sisters, Joel as I
loved my own nothing more. But! tell you
that as she sat there warbling, I thought an

them, but I could not I had promised to take

nutter of consternation, and It was only after

As for Kate, she darted out of the room and
