Old Nod, from his oonversatii with Milk IMurdoek had determined not speak to his dayhter until he knew Tom bh done so. But Winny did not know this, ast dreaded every moment a thunderclap woul come which she herself was preparing fi her father, and she was anxious, if it wi only for the sake of propriety, to tell her stot unprovoked. The old man now stood up from the tnabl saying he would be likely to be out all dal as he was preparing to get down some when lint Winny, when it came to the point, cool only stammer out in a feeble voice that sh wanted to speak to him before he went. -"' Now's yonr time, Winny dear, for I haveo great dale to do before dinner-time; an' must be off to the men." " Father dear, I may as well toll you a once-I'm in tro blo-about-about-Ton -Murdock." And she threw her arms rouno hisl neck, and laid her cheek upon his sboul der. "An' is that all, mavounroen Ah, Winny Winny, I knew it would come to this!-ma vourneen macree, I knew It would. But there Winny, jewel, don't be crying-don't be cry. log; sure you know I'm not the man to cross your wishes; po-no my own girl, I'd neithet oppose you nor force you for thetrorld; are'nt you the only one I have os airth T an' sure isn't your happiness mine, Wiony dear I There Winny, don't cry; sure you may do as you like, mavonrneen, macree, you may." Winny knew that all this was uttered under a misconception, and it gave her hut little comfort. There was onar part of it, however, she would not forget. "Oh, father." she sobbed out upon his breast "Tom Murdock has asked me to marry him." And the teamrs rolled down her cheeks. "Why, then, Winny dear, dry up them tears soure I know they're on my account, at the thoughts of partin' me; hot won't you be liv in' at the doore with me while I last? Isn't it what I always hoped an' prayed for Winny, Winny but you're the lcky girl this day, an' I'm the lucky man, for it will add ten years to my life." And he kissed her yielding lips over and over again. Blt she did nut speak; while thu big tears continued to course themselves down her pale but beautiful cheeks. " Don't-don't Winny asthore; don't io cry ing on my account; sure I uay say well not have to part at all.

She had gained her cause without that. a ClAITER XIS'. I Tom Mordock had no fixed purposo in any st where he went after Winny Cavana left him t discomfited upon the road, lie wandered on m past Kate Mulvey's on toward Shanvilla, but 1-d not with any hope or wish to come across Ed ward Lennon. His intentions of "dealing with him" were yet distant and undefined. ii What naturally occupied his thoughts was the a humiliation he felt at Winny Cavana having ' refused him. Although he had complained to hie father "that he did not think she was for ' him," yet upon a due consideration of his per t sonal appearance, and his position in the coun try, he felt persunaded In his own mind that his father was right, and that nothing was re a quired to seonre sucncesan but to go boldly and straightforward to work. Tom had hinted to his father, although the old utan had not ob r served it, orifso, had taken no noticeof it, that there were more reasons than he was aware of for his wishing to secure Winny, Cavana'u ready money at all events; and his exclama tion when his father spoke of only the interest might have awakened him to the dread, at least. that there was really some cause, with which he was unacquainted, why he dwelt so much lItore on the subject of her fortune than the land. The fact was so. Tom Murdock was a worse young man than any one-except his immediate associates-was aware of. In r addition to his other acoomplishments, per- I hap. I should rather say his attributes he possessed a degree of worldly cnniong w 1ich1 would have anosufficed to keep any four ordinary young men out of trouble. But he required it all, for he had four times more villany-not to I answer for, for it was unknown, but on his conocience-than any young man of like age in I the parish. One great keeper of a secret-for the time ° being, at least-is plenty of money. With plooty of mnoney you can keep people in the y dark, or blind them with the brightness of the c glare. You can keep them in the country, or i you ran senui thenm out of it, as circumratances l required.

There were other bmaler muattiers. too, which wi increased the necessity for To'o Munriock to yo be always in possession of some re.ldy cash. ny This, from his position as heir to Ratheash-. mote, and heir presumptive, if not apparent, to Hatheasl alongside of it, he bah as ye: found so difficulty in Procnring upon his own o personal security; and to do him justice, be l had hitherto avoided mizingup his father's name or responsibility in any of his borrowino th transactions.

If ho was pressed W by Panl. he robbed Peter to ay him ; and wheni (after long furbearance) he was pressed A by Peter, he robbeld Paul back again.
