which failing, they were involvod in the

Tar differently fared Ralph. In the

"Baipii," said Lis one day, "I
would scarcely exchange our present lot
for the one we held when lirst 1 became

quiet life of strict utiliry which i* lost in
t.ie ultded days of wealthy spleudor. I

He sioppeo iier as he locked
into her geutle face.
" Not happier, Lucy," he added, "not

Ralph lived to an old age: his hair was
white, aud his step tottering; but the
heart and mind were tirai still. Hi.- chil
dren were married, or otherwise settled
iu the world; wealth had fallen to the
share uf some, couipet-ncy only to the lot
of others.
But rorrow, keen sorrcT, r. >w foil on
Ralph. Lucy died . and as he saw the
uou!d fall on the lowered coffin until it
was hidden lroiu his view, he whispered,
a* if to he- who lay there—" i know what
j'ioss is now, dear wife—l never felt its
meaning b-. tore."
j Boydei 1 also lived to an old age. A
partial recovery tumbled hi n to return to
1:1s home—but he was no welcome guest
there. Unkindness and want of care had
the re-ult which might have been expect
ed—lie returned to the asyluui, hopeless
ly mad, and died there some years after
wards, to the vei v evident relief of his
wife and eLiil Ire a.
Now. i:: all human probability, these
two womc . worked the snju ! to the fate
of their hit.-bands. The uue by l.er grii

vest of b'es.-ingi for herself.
And the otb :r I truly did she " cast her
seed up ui the water'*" an l "tru'v did
she find it after many days." It was like
the poisoned Upas berry, taking root and

j It paid toe grocer to be polite. The

a groat as well as a rich man. He estab
