Her delicate form was shivering even nndor the heavy shawl thnt she had thrown about her shoulders, and sho looked often with a wiutfnl trlnnci. nt tho little lins- Vet of fuel that stood besido the fire place. Another hour passed and tlio clock (track one. "He must soon be here now," whis pered she in a bnlf-frighteiied tone. "I will lay aside my work aud make tbings as choerf ul ns I can." So sho brushed the ashes from the hearth, drew the coals together, threw on them a, handful of the carefully-Raved fuel and fanned the faint flamo till it flashed high in the chimney Then she loiked about the room to see if might could be mended; but the few articles it held wero all in their wonted places, and everything as neat as the hands of love eonfd make it. An arm-chair was drawn from a corner close to tho crack ling fire, the dressing gown that hung upon it spread out anew and a pair ol dippers were upon tho fender. The lamp was trimmed afresh, tho table dusted, and beside it was placed a knife almost as bright as though the blade had been silver instead of steel. "I have done the best I can," Baid the pale watcher, as again she sank into her chair. "Oh, if I wero only sure of one kind word," sho continued. "Hark I" 81ie started up and listened. "It is he and how he bangs (he gate? I shall have a fearful time with him." Sho hastened to the front door aud gently opened it.

It i the ager passion with which nil the mind rushes into the alternative of prolonged life that really unmans a nature which would bo sternly euough in facing cer tain death. Mingle a great fenr with a vivid my of hope, and you will turn n head which could hold its own against inevitable fate. Tlio tumultuous fit ment iu the case of plague is, wo be lieve, the selfish desire to escape rather than the actual prospect of death. The panic felt is really tho panic of tempestu ous hope rather ihuu tho panic of fear. Extinguish tho hop" and tlio panic will il ten cease lis completely as u you nuu 'ztinguished the fear itsolf.
