A low days wade a great change in Bly Late.
T'!e fair young spir:t that had I'rightened it
was a worn and saddened spirit and the
house was a saddened house Belle broke
down snouddenly and completely into a weak,
hysterical inualid who could give no nort of
help and was a constant care. And one day a
voice which James would have known in the
desert of Sahara or the city of Pekin, said very
simply from behind Iis chair, where he sat at
work facing the window :
"Mr. Purcell !"
"Yee, Miss Evelyn."
lie had not spoken to her since that evening
in her own bouse when the oonfsalon had been
c..'?,ed at his entrance. Both remembered it,
au,l Evelyn blushed, for though with womanly
honor she had striven to shield Rsebnrn from
blame, and with womanly weakness dwelt
tenderly still upan his memory, she fancied
James must know why her engagement was
brol.en. Tber, looking at his kind, dnll face,
aho',m ghbt her secret still her own. Eve-y
one l:I'gied at James, and every one came to

And at. length James ti, red to Ev.lvn, who

James put his hand inside his vest and drew

Ilow strangely it saiudted to the two eisters
to hear that sirng man s.ay those words. He

and no brains to use even that little well.
Bat I have watched you and yours till I think
my heart will broak if I don't speak. Miss
Evelyn, Ilove you. Cnuld you put up with
such a poor crutch as I am-a very frail sup
port for life's journey-and take me for your
husband, to be a son to your parents, and a
brother to their children º You ara wearing
out with care and trouble. If you weuld only
be so very, very kind as to marry me at once,
and let me come straight to your home and
take all the burdens that I con, and share the
stress with you, I think my blessings would
be too great. I know I ask too much, but I
must ask, and God wall help me to be what 1
ought to you.
Faithfully yours,

was offering to do. 'he trials, and worries,

"We shall be hinppy agsn,:" she had said
