Winny Cavan, ns far as her own feelipgs and
chef were coue.rned, had not made a bad
orning's work of it. Hitherto ad she d up
sed that Kate Mulvey had forestalled her in
he afectiecs of Een-a-knock. The neighbors
ad given them to each other, and she feared
hat Eno wta not free from the power of her
harms. With these doubts, or almost with

She could not hope, however,-p-lrhal ho'

wished to be able to ay with a clear con

perceived that She had been joined by Kate

p By this tirm they had reoahed the end of the
I lane again; and Winny with her heart on fire,
and her face In. flame, hnrried to the house.
Fortunately her father had not returned from
a the fields, and rushing to her own room, she
locked thd door, took off her bonnet and cloak
i and" threw herself" (I believe that is the
o proper expression,) opon the bed. Perhaps a
songeatiu novelist would add that she ' burst
Sialtq tl agony of tears."
V Warny lay fir nearly an hour meditating
upon the past, the present, and the future.
v Upon the whole she did nut regret what had
occurred, either before or after she had met
Tow MHrdock, and she cooled down into her
accuntomed self-posseesion eosner than she had
One grand object had been attained. Teom
Murdock had come to the point, and she had
r given him his final and irrevooab!e answer, if
she had twenty fathers thundering parental
authority in bher ears. A spot of blue sky had
appeared too in the east, above the outline of
Shanvilla mountain, in which the morning
f star of her yonng life might oon arise, and
t shine brightly through the flimsy olouds-for
she could call them aotbis" but flimsy sow
which had hitherto darkened her hopes.
What if Tom Murdook was a villain --and
she believed he was: what dared he-what
could he. do Pabhaw, nothing! But, oh that
the paeage-of-erms between herself and her
fath4e was aver I " Then," thought she, " all
mI ight be plain sailing before me.
But Wiony, supposing all these matters
fairly ever-and the battle with your father is
likely to be as oranky and tough upon his part
asit is certain to be straightforward and de
termined peon yonrs-there aill still be a
donaitfal blask upon youe mina and in yonr
heart, and one the sulevtibn of whieh you can

to chaunce for timae o:l- opportunity for that
most important of all your interviews. And
what if yeo be mistaken after all, and, if ma:s
takes, crushed for ever by tbgreault ?
Let Winny alone for that. Wuiaiu seldom
make a bad guess in such a ease. ,
Winny's mental and nervous system having
both regained their ordinary deAree of compo

the house upon bhqr, usual .j t aone. S he
was not, however, qaiu ! n certain de

very exciting morning upon two different sub
Jeots. Yes; ehe called them different, though
they were pretty mulch akin; and she would
now prefer i cessation of her anxiety for the
remainder of that afternoon at least.
So far she was forturate. Her father did
not come in until it was very late; and being
much fatigued by his stewardship of the day,
he did not appear in.clied to eater upon any
important sutnject, but fell asleep in his arm

terra in a eal of tea before he woet to bed.
" Yea, m a reen," he said, " I full asleep
before I mixud a tumbler of lpnch, and I'll
tike the tea now Instead; for, Winny. my
16vo, you can join me in that. Do you know
Wnlny, I'm very thirsty f"
"Well, father dear, I'll soon give you what
While Winny was busying herself for the
tea, putting down a huge kettle of water in
the kitchen, and rattling the cam and saucers
unil yontda think she was trying to break
them, timo old man wakened up into a train of
thought not altogether dimsimilar to that
which Winny herself had indulged in over his
Wibny was quite right, .·9 whole matter
had been disouned on tboh dtbetweeu the
old man during their perambulations round
the &wo-fl ; the respeetive value and con
dition of the land formilg a minute calcola
tion not unconnected wit the ether portion
of their disconure--ettlepenst, deeds of con.
veyance, etct etc., had all been touched upon.
Wuany war right in another of her earmnee,
alsheugh at the time she searcely believed -r
self. Old 4drdock, taking hi cue fremom Tom,
told old Ned that if be found Winay at all
averse to marying Tom, he was certain young
Lennon would be at the botton of it-at least
Tom had more than hinted such to him.
Old Ned was fnriou at thins deolaring that
if Tom Murdock was never to the fore, bis
fore, his daughter should never bestow his
long and bard earninga upon a pauper like
that, lookinug for a dals wages here and there,
and as often without at as with it; how dare
the lites of him lift his eyes to his little girl I
But he'd soon put p stop to that, if there was
anything in it, lot what would turn up. Every
punny-pfcee he an worth is'the world was in
his own power, and there was a very easy way
of bringing Miss Winny to her senses, if she
had tlat wild notion in her head.
Poor old Ned, WB his indignation for what he.
thourcht Wiuny'4 welfare, forgot that she was
tihe only beinrg belonging to him in the world,
and that when' it came to the pouint he would
find it impossible to put his threat of "eut
ting hsr oif" into execution.
IOid Murdock was delighted with this tirade
a isnt young Lennon, whom he looked upon
as the only real obstacle to Tomi's acquisition
of land nod nmoney, to say nothing of a hand
"' B,a stnddy with her, Ned," said he, "she
has s very fihstlherin' way wid her when
you're concerned ; I often remarked it. Don't
let her come round you, Ned. wid her pillar-,
rmin' about that ' whelp,' as Tom oalls him."
' An' be calls him quite right. If he dares
t- look up.to my little girl he'll soon find oat
his mistake, I anu tell him"
"Notbin' would show him his mistake so
much as to have Tonm' business and hers set
tied at Shraft, Ned."
" 1 know that, Mick 1 n' witlm the bleasing
I'll spoke to her in the morninr' upon the sab
jiot. I dunse did Tom over spake to herself,
" If be didn't he will s 4e to-morrow night;
he's on the watch to meet with her by accident;
he says it's better nor to go straight up to her,
an' maybe frighten her."
" Very well, lick; I'll have au, eye to them.
Maybe it would be better to let Toen himself
speke first.. Thoee girls are so prond, and I
can tell yea it's better not vex Winay."
Of doors* thee two old men said a great
deal. o, bthas the above iis the pith of what
set o14 aedavana thinking tbo greater part
of th' night, 'for the tea Winny made was very
strong, and, as be said, he was thirsty, having
missed hi pbler of punph after dinner. He
fell " asl', however, mush sonner than be
would have done had te oeqel to.hie plans
become known him biWore ii woet to bed.
