had seized me.t
One evening I sat by the piano while me
Grace sang to me. , The cousin was not
there, and dear Grace's varying colet g
and glistening eyes suggested sweet dot
hopes to my vanity. I fancied 1 aw fo
love in these bright dewy eyes and on al
those soft music-breathing lips.
It was the last evening of Iny vacation
and surely I read at gentle, firewell m
thought in (Jrae's face. I was beside e
myself with joy at the idea-I was as lit
if in a blissfll dream--a sweet delirinuI let
-a rapture of love. As Grace rose to i
leave the piano I caught her hand, and be
unable longer to suppress the one i,
thought that filled my heart; I exclaim- on
ed fervently: Cc
"Grace-dear Grace, with all my soul an
I love you !" lo
She lifted her large, soft eyes, and
said slowly, while a mischievous smile
stole over her face:
"I know it."

prevent it, or to recover from my sur. d
The next day I returned to college, Ill
e expecting to complete my studies in 61
another year. A year! how long a time ty
to be absent from the beloved being who dc
was to me, I felt, henceforth and for- le
ever, whether she returned my love or
not, the nucleus round which all my tii
I thoughts would revolve. I eednot lo
say how eften her strange and unsatis- al
i factory answer tormented me. I per- bW
ceived in her repetition of the samne b
g words, h]:r remembrance of the time she d:
had used them before; and this, then, tr
If was the just punishment for my inso- w
I lence. I tortured myself by bringing Ai
y the whole scene again and again to pl

I love, and her provoking reply, "I know bi

At6 o'clock last eveui our reporter

o daughter of the nnfortunate mother, we all]
learned the following particuloar: sist
r About 3 o'clock yesterday afternon, N'il
Y the unfortunate mother was engaged l for
,t looking through an old trunk for son0m Ts h
articles and her little sou was standing- Pof
beside her looking on. On reaching the
C bottom of the trunk she camte to a small tb
e derringer pistol, which had been in the S
I, trunk for some three years, and there
- was no idea on tile part of any of the old
g fanily that- it fias loaded. it was a hol
0 pistol found upon the streets nearly four ho
f years ago by the mother, and carried a
W ball about the size of a pea. Upoa e6e.
I ing the Distol the little fellow
reached for it, expressing a tlesir9 to
'a play with it, but the mother picked it
up first and, in a good humored way,
0 pointed it at him, saying, "Look out,
I- I'll shoot you." Amy, who was near
t by, remarked to her she had better look
o out as the pistol might he loaded, but,
' alas, her warning was too late, for the deu
n words had Irdly escalled her lips when of
I thp report sounded and the dea dly byl4
