from his side, to which she bad gradually

The alarmed and agitated mother burst

heavy eye brightened fora moment at her
approach, despite of sufeing and sieknaes.,
put her lips to the little cheek and kissed
away the team, whispering softly " God re

"l m afraid of that bold man. Don't let

through terror and lnesea; and she placed
her little wasted hands about her mother's
neck to prevent her moving.
"Don't be afraid, my own little corra.
tach~ree, (palse of my heart) he won't come
near us," the moher was repeating, when
she was interrupted by the voice of Shawn,
shoating to her to come forth again.
He staggered towards thet open doorway,
but strikine his foot agiunst its under foot
frame, fell into the room with an impreca
tion, the bottle slipping from his hand at
the same time with a crash on the floor,
while mother and children were too inuch
terrified to venture evena scream. After
having quieted the infants with some diyf
culty, and ascertained that her vile brother
wdns stretched on the floor 'tterly inseo
sible, Nancy passed softly by b him to the
outer door, where she stood listeniag for
some time with intense anxiety, as it was,
she thought, nearing the time the priest
had appointed for visiting the cabin. At
last, when she began to fear, or rather, n
der the present cirLpmstances, almost to
hope that Father Bernard would not come
at all that night, she was startled by a tap
at the window ; and as she approached the
door, she could distinguish the voice of
