unn.;.. tor tne tram was very near
and I felt that the ryes of the Sisters
were upon us. "Tou can not go away
whore I shall not find you!"
I did not know who this girl was,
her homo, or her relation to the
school, but I knew that her life and
mine had touched stranpoly; that her
eyes were blue, and that ber Toice had
called to mo twice through the dark,
in mockery once, and ia warning an
other time, and that the sense of hav
ing seen her before, of having looked
Into her eyes haunted me. The youth
ia her was ao lurinjr: she was at once
so frank and so guarded breeding
and the taste and training of an am
pler world than that of Annandale
were so evidenced in the witchery of
her voice, in the trraee and case that
marked her every motion, in the sort
pray tone of hat, dress and gloves,
that a new mood, a new hope and
f:iirh sang In my pulses. There, on
that platform. I felt again the sweet
heartache I had known as a boy, when
syrlng first warmed the Vermont hill
sides and the monutains sent the last
snows sluing in Joy of their release
iowa through the brook-beda and into
the wakened heart of youth.
Fhe met my ryes steadily.
"If I thought there was the slightest
chance of my ever seeing you again I
shouldn't be talking to you here. But
I thought I thought it would be good
fua to see how you really talked to a
Krown-up. So 1 am risking the dis
pleasure of these good Sinters Just to
test your conversational powers, Mr.
Glenarm. You se how perfectly
frank I am."
"But you forget that I can follow
you; I don't intend to sit down in this
iioie and dream about you. You can't
go anywhere but I shall follow and

that was di.-licimis ia Its mockery.
I felt the blood mounting to my
cheek. She knew, then, that I wan
virtually a prisoner at Gienarui, and
for once lu my life, at leant, I was
aahanird of my folly that had caused
my grandfather to hold and check me
from the grav(, as he had never beeu
able to coutrol me ia his life. The

heart rebelled ut the thought that tliU
