Fred for soenory 7 he was id the hands
of the blind god, and could not see even

turbed every momont; . of hie -czistonoe,

in his favor J at , others ' he ' fancied ho
read a coolness and indifference id her

bo dared trot press the- question iesi , a
hasty step .mighs bring him to grief, ., .
1 At Fred's earnest solicitation I prom
ieed to sound Belle as to her sentiments,
if a favorible opportunity presented if.
Self, of at any rate to let her know.jn an
indirect ay, that i) rea was languisning
in distress on her aoconnt. and thus give
. . . -. . . . , 1
herio excuse for unnecessarily prolong
02 his misery, it SO happened, nowev.
cf. Wkt mV services' were not called into
reoui'aitiona' ' Belle BrooBOO. because , of
the. sudden arrival at her house of some
country ceusinB, was obliged to give up
her room her mother's cottage being a
small i one-r-and to occupy for a , single
nitrht a room at the hotel. , Wo would
cheerfully. have offered her guests accom
modations at our nouse, dui wp were in
the same predicament. '- An ' agricultural
fair-iu' the village bad .. brought,. many
strangers v into the plaoe, and our own
ffneata were so numeroui tnac 1 naa giv
en hp'my room to -two of them and, bad
intended' asking, D red ji vans, 10 ie me
pass the night with him.
, For this purpose X, went to' tho' hotel
at a late hour; and proceeded at onbe ' to
Fred s i-oom. but to. 'my surprise found
no nnn thera. I didr.not reven notice
that his trunk was gone,, pf guspeot the
fact, which afterwards beoame.'appaaren't,
that , 'to oblige some fady pueet for this
night 'fthly,' as- the landlord expressed it,
Fred had cpnoenfed to give up 'No. 20'
and occupy a T06td in the rear of the
building.- The gas being turned up I
took a book to await his leturn, and hear
ing at last what appeared to be steps 1 ap
proaching the room, ana uppoing iu
be Fred, in a momentary impulse to play
joke upon him I slipped under the bed,
large and high ode, intending to imi
tate a cat (ot whioh animal I knew ho
had a detestation; as soon ae ne entered
the robmi The door oponod, ; and I was
ftn the boint 6f indulging in my yentriln
oqiai fabulty by giving a long-drawn
miaow.' when from mt biding plaotr I be
held Belle Bronson taking quiet posses
sion of the apartment I "'i.i Ul4 ' i li,
My astoniehment was so great, and the
innaA aF mortification bo intense, that I
Jid not, as I should have dpne.Snake my
self immediately known tq; her. s Thus
the opportunity fot disoovery and expla
nation' was. Jostajr 1 dared not., move a
hair, but hoped . sincerely that some ex
cuse might, take her ov of the room lot
moment, and so facilitate bay escape.
She, hoyevor, looked the door,', removed
the k.eytano, J, mow ,dj jae . pna, .pre
pared to . retire, i l'ioilly she kneeled
dowd by ibe side of the bed, aqd clasping
bar bands and bowiog her, head (so loar-
fully near tomloe.that J could bear .the
doft Words in my very ear,) she offered
up her evening . prayer in a - manner so
full of feeling, and with rsqcl sweet ao
oenta cf womanly tenderness and ; devov
tion, that I folk as if Hhe .waa an attgel
bending over Ihe vHcat of mortals,; .That
prayer went to my heart ; but oio por
tion went through it and held it captive.
Nover shall I-forgot, raj feeliugs k .ar
prise ; and deep ctnotion when I heard
her u'ter Ihese .wsrds : 'Bless my dear
mother, sisters and .friends; bless j all
