more marked. Poor Charles was terribly
upset. Hefi.lt that ho was not mistaken,
and that Miriam's lovo for him was
cooling daily. In this conviction, as a
matter of fact, he was quito correct.
Miriam, if tho truth must bo told, was
a young lady iueapablo of any real in
tensity of love. isii

made, and that degree of heroism in lovo

youth was slinnim?
lured her no better reward at tho end
than tho position of a very poor man's
wife was (as sho thought on mature re
flection) just a spot beyond her.
in this idea sho was sedulously en-
iiaiiageu and supported by all her
fri. nds and relatives. " You aro throw

they said, "when with your pretty face,
