The crimson days' of October . woro fast fading away, and very soon nowj in the early part of November," was Miss Warren to be with us. In tho meanwhile, Chip dale was in a stir.' 'The old school-house, under the superintendence of the commit tee-men, was repaired arid neatly fitted up.: The village children, who had . been run ning wild, or, at tho best,' only occasion ally going to the district school, were gath orim; up , their books and well-thumbed primers, and waiting, with much anxiety the, arrival of . the new. teacher. Aud wo were busy at home. .Aunt Esther, it was true, had long been settled from her fall cleaning; but thou sho had many prepar ations to make, and tho brightest and best room in tho house must be put in com plcte readiness for Miss Warren. ' ., In the mean while, I awaited the com- ing of my new teacher with a strange sort of dread. - I could not forget the skrpent- skal. Such a chill gray afternoon it was when Mr, Whyte set off in his carriage to meet her at the neighboring railway sta- tiori. : The evening closed in yet moro chilly and gloomy1; and I sat by tho win dow, . harkening to the . winds moaning amongst the tall, pines, and looking out upon the dark and . starless sky until heard Mr. Whyte- speaking, to his horse close by our gate. Then I let tho long crimson curtain fall slowly back over the window, and going to a dark corner of the room, at down there quietly. ' My aunt snatched tip a light, arid hurried into the hall; but I did not follow her.- And at last the packages were taken from the car riage.

'.':.''r,vS,; A faint, though very 'sweet smile was Miss Warren's only acknowledgement of my, courtosy and then, complaining of weariness, she threw hersolf back in my aunt's great cushioned chair. :' As she sat there" with her large black eyes languidly closed, the red fire-light shone full in her face. Surely, Mr.' Whyte had spoken without knowledge. ' Miss Warren WAS beautiful, yet hers was a mournful beauty, Perhaps it was the rich folds of raven hair which shaded her high forehead,- and the deep black dress she .wore, which gave to her face its ghastly whiteness ; but around the exquisitely carved mouth hung an ex presBion of great Buffering, almost agony ,(Aro you siok , Miss Warren ?'' , I ask ed, noticing that, through the thin white lingers pressod , over her ' eyes, the tears were fast falling. .
