The letter dropped from her hands,
and she stood for a moment without
movement, her fingers clasped together
tightly, the hrows contracted, she
could' scarcely gather herself together
to think; it had all come so suddenly
upon her that aw fid haunt ing fear
that had overshadowed even the horror
of the wrong done, and the grief for

her hands together, and began pacing
restlessly up and down. "Why do 1
connect them so in my thoughts? And
if it were that, what should I do? No,
no. I cannot think of that now."
Sho lived through the rest of thai
day. Janet coming in. liesought her to
take something to eat or drink. She
feared her mist i ess would he ill and was
really anxious for her. Jhit Knea put
away the tea and w ine and food the
housekeeper brought and said she could

and shook her head as she re

Night came on at I.eM. and Erica

heard the distant sound of closingdonrs.

the other side of the house. The win

while the south gate faced tiie sea.

the air in a column; but something was
moving in the shadow of thoso funereal
looking lira, couiinjr on towards the
window; it was no fancy.
The girl paused one brief second, and
then soi'lly undid the fastenings of the
casement and opened it.
"Who goes there?" she said, in a low,
distinct voice, and almost before tho
sound had died away a man's form enmo
out into thfl light, and with one swift
stride he bad reached the window, and
the girl would have laid her hand on
his to draw him in but he warned her
away with a gesture that rnado her
shrink back, and lie sprang into the
room, shutting the window after him.
There was an instant's deathly si
lence; in it you might have heard her
low quivering Watli corning as if each
respiration was forced from the throb

She stood looking at him with dilated
eyes and whin? drawn lips, her bands

"Xo, that will not do." She paused a
moment in thought, and for a brief

passed over her features. "And so

''Yes; be will keep quiet I bribed

"Will be? Hut not without your

of st range bitt erness.
Would her prayer, be more than a
thread to hold huh back if there were
no other motive. How could she tell?
"Where is he?"
"He is out on the road; he came down
with nie. Ho said be might be wanted."
"lie is wanted I must think."
He leant back in the chair, watching
her half-curiouslv, and yet in a sort or
apathetic wav. lie seemed quite inca
pable himself of making any effort on
his own behalf; never quick or resolute
to act in any emergency, he more than
ever now threw1 himself absolutely on
Erica's stronger spirit, and felt himself
lost without her.
And while she walked up and down,
she resolved in that busy brain a plan
of escape which might elude vigilance.
There was no train going anywhere
from (irayle until the next morning;
and. moreover, it would not be safe to

in some vessel thai would take mm

that she would be compromising her

husband's name in jeopardy. She had
been so little in the world, and hi d al
ways looked on Arnold so completely
as a brother, that she did not realize all
that she risked, l'hilip would not be
home, fur four or five days, and she
would have returned by that time.
She stopped at last and Kpoke.
"1 am going to leave yon for a mo

he started and glanced around nervous

"Erica, stay." He roused himself,
mid laid a haiul on her shoulder, and
the crimson rushed over her brow as he
spoke, looking down on that beautiful,
stern face. "Ho you know what you

some compunction for her sake. He

The wind was sweeping in wild gusts
over the lawn, bending the trees before
it, lashing the sea below into a boiling
foam; the clouds hung low over the
horizon, and seemed to mingle with and
join the inky black waves that came
tumbling along in their uncouth plav,
when l'hilip St. John crossed his own
threshold and passed at once to the li
brary. How dull and cheerless it looked, des

about the house, a feeling impossible lo

While the old hoys crowded Hionnd the
old flag at a recent reunion. Hill, with
an irrepressible humor, called out,
"Hoys, I nrn no speaker, hut there's a
blamed sight more of you hern than I

down the house.
"Now, bovs, recite your ver-. -; thru

A woman in Prance slept mvcntv
three days in one inning, snd when she
swoko ami learned that her husband
had heen taking his meals at n restaur
ant during all tins tune, instead of get
ting out of bed at daylight and going to
market, she was so mad that she de
clared she wouldn't go to sleep again
as long as she lived.
"A little fellow, from four to live
years old, having perforated the knee of
liis trousers, was intensely delighted
with a patch his grandmamma Inwl ap
plied. He would sit and gaze upon it
in a state of remarkable admiration;
and in one of these moods suddenly ex

At a meeting of clergymen not long
since a reverend gentleman by the name
of Loss, of dimensions somewhat ex

ple you were a great Loss.,"1 "Yes,"
said another, "when he dies ho will bo
no Loss." "Nay," said a third, "ho
will ho a dead Loss."
"Ma," said a youth, as ho came skip
ping into the house, "it's wicked to
take anything, ain't it?" "Yes, niy son,
it is wicked to take any thing, but don't
bo so boisterous." "Whoop! Well, I'vo
been swimming, and don't ask mo to
take a lickiu', cause it's wicked. I'm
after a pieco of pie." And beforo his
parent could get hold of a slipper he
had slipped out through the pantry with
it, and was sicking the dog on to a scissors-grinder
down the street.
It never rains but it pours. A New
port visitor, after a long struggli), mau
aped to got a foothold in society, and
all of a sudden found that she had been
invited to nine dinner parties, all on the

"I often cross the street to avoid meet
ing a man," says Mr. Needier, "not be
cause I have any thing against him,
but simply because I do not feel like
speaking to him. I suppose all men
aro this way." Yes, nearly all men nie
that way, Mr. Peeeher, and wo uro glad
you have mentioned the subject, for it
gives us a chance lo agree with a great
man. Wo sonietinn s cross the street
and climb a fence to avoid meeting a
man, not because wo have any thing
against him, but because he has some
thing against us; a bill, Mr. Hccchor.
