When, wasted and worn with fever.
Jessie awoke to reason, it was to iind
her cousin haggard ami aged by anxie
ty, and bitterly remorseful for brimring
b'er to hiich a pass. The pure sunshine
came through the ouainl diamond
paned window and lighted up the som
bre room, as Hex, in an agony of re
pentance, knelt by the bedside and im
plored her to give him just one kind
word for pity's sake, but the memory of
her wrongs came to her quickly, and
raising herself feebly upon her pillows,
she said scornfully:
"So I am still in captivity, still in
your power, and I have been so near to
God. Oh, it is awful! Leave me, there
is no need of your face to remind me of
the despair tliat has struck at my life,
and nearlv lost nie my reason, (io; if

Hex. roused out of his stupor of de
jection bv her fierce reproach, rose and
staggered to the outer .room, where
Flora sat doing some homely needle
work. "(io to her, Flora, she is sensible now,
tmt do not let her talk."
Flora rose and went sw iftly into the
sick room. Jessie was sitting up in bed,
tears streaming down herw bite checks,
her hands pressed frantically to her
"How long have I been here?"
"Near upon a month, ma'am.''
"A month! Good God! what will
people think has become of me?"
'What does the world matter, my
dear, if you have your hu-bainl?"
"My husband! Do you mean to say
be has kept up that cruel farce? God
help me, how can 1 fi'-'ht against such
relentless cunning? oh. why did I not
die. and so end all this perplexity."
"Hush, dearie, it is shocking to hear

"But can you not understand how
miserably I am placed, in my cousin's

"Trv to rest. dear, and no one shall

Jessie sighed and turned her face to
the wall wearily. The summer sun
beams reflected in a plass of water
made dancing waves of light upon the
wall, and caught Jessie's eyes.
While she watched the golden waves
on the wall an idea came to her lo coax
Flora Mackav to nost a letter to Ir.
Kavnor, and so summon him lo her as
sistance. Altera pretended sleep she roused
herself and asked for her tea. While
taking it she prevailed upon her nurse
to tret her writing materials and con
sent to post her letter.
She was persuaded only on one condi
tion, that was that the letter should ho

This condition 'rather ballh-d Jessie,

Jessie, recognizing Audrey's Writing,
felt sure the letter contained a prom

whiter as she read its contents which
were as follows:

Well. 1 won't trust too much to the de

"Where is my letter. Flora? Oh,

"1 can't get it for you. Mr. V'enni

I I i in for it. not me," answered the wom
an sullenly, for she knew her lover
would be bitterly angry with her for
allow ing her charge to receive a letter.
Her half imbecile old father called
ber away now. and as she passed through
the Mt:iug-rooin, Hex said:
-Can I go in now, I want to speak to
III V lie?"
"Yes. sir. you can; but I entreat you
to deal kindly with her, for she is too ill
to bear any liioro trouble."
Jes-ie lifted her heavy eyes scornfully
to her cousin's face as he entered, and
took the vacant chair beside the bed.
-"lis a manly thing to do, Hex, to
force your way into a sick woman's

sie was but a shadow of her bright,
bonny self; Hex. with a dissatisfied,
worried look in his bold, hundsonveyes,
for sure as -he pretended to be, the de
lav bothered him: the game was not
p la ved out yet. and who could tell what
turn tickle ion imc might take to defeat
him? So far he bad been successful,
but looking into Jessie's changed face
he felt hissuccfss had been bought at a
cruel cost, and hard and relentless as he
was, he could not stillea feeling of
keen self-reproach, for he spoke truly
when lie said he loved his cousin.
He did love her to the best of his
black heart's ability, loved her and
sinned agaiiwt ail that should appeal to
a noble nature; sinned against her
helplessness, her innocence, her happi
ness, and still dared to say he loved her.

upon his forehead, and his mother, see
