for the sound of a voice which had power
to thrill every uervo In her frame; yet, iu
spite of all, her decision was made.
She had written to Lady Haven, saying

hud withheld her decision from her undo

Her aunt was busy below, rearranging

had shrunk. Hoping for what she dreaded,

of her cousin l'hillp's arrival ut homc for

' The wintry light hud faded Into dusk;

"For three days nearly, Florence," ho
said, "you have summed me hus the iu.

Or is it the truth, as they tell me, thut
you have been ringing the changes of fa

cheeks were flushed to the hue of a rose.
'I am uot ill," she answered unstead

"Ah, I thought not 1 I guessed your mo.

But do neither lightly, 1 beg you."

"Where is l'hilip?" "Where are they

their fresh voices bringing with them a
breath of frosty wlulcr air.
Florence had been too absorbed In her
own thoughts to escape unseen to her room,
and Ethel soon discovered her crouched in
a low chair In a dark corner.

Maud's thoughts were traveling in one
direction only; she believed she saw a mo
tivo for her brother's absence.
"And It Is a shame, Florence, that you
have decided to leave us so soon, as mamma
tell us," went on Ethel. "We quite be

"I can never forget bow kind you have

suddenly burst into tears.
'Ethel, you should not be quite so
brusquo, child," said Muud; uud then,
turning to Miss Worthington, she asked,
"Why cannot you stay with us, Florence,

wish you to do so."
"Not more than I wish it, Maud," an
swored Florence. "But you see aunt Ha.

sudden thrill of relief. The girls too
brightened at the thought.
"You know we will have you back only

I doubt if that will be likely," said Maud.

"I am following my fate, I suppose,"
Florence answered sadly.
. The days passed quickly; they were
gliding into weeks, and three hud fled.
Florence begun to count the hours, and to
find herself listening intently for steps
