Prudence came in, and the old man went on his way all unconscious of the great stone he had cast into the still waters of Dora's heart. "What's the matter?" said Prudence you're as white as a ghost." Dora's only answer was to dart out of the house and run, as for her life, down the fro/en orchard-path bv which she could gian upon and overtake this terrible old man. She might have said, with "holy Herbert," Mv thoughts are all a case of knives Wounding my heart With scattered siu&rt^— oidy misery must have time to crvstallizo int«t memory before it hikes the form of poetry.
