the night previous lo her departure, forsook
her immediately alter she felt the house.
She then fell that all ahe held dear in life
was buried to her. She wondered at her
pride, and longed In throw herself al liia

had gone loo far, she could not return.
Alter she reached New xork, ahe or-

with the one the was on.
"That does n't no up the river to-night.

Mrs Dudley bowed her head and follow'

be no rest for her. Hours she lay mo

"No, we hate reached Albany; but she

Mrs Dudljr arose, gave her baggage into'

"To what hotel shall I drive, Miss I" he
"It is of uo consequence any," she re

She ordered her baggage lo be put on,

When Emm.;, mentioned her name, the

Ah! deeply did she regret the wretched

remained lo finish several drawinga for her
pupils. She heard from afar the bugle horn
of the stage-coach wilh which (tie driver

wept. With the teaia came memories of
the loved one who had always caressed her
more fondly when any light grief had over

A door opened from an adjoining room,
and Mrs Easton passing through, drew a
seat beside Emma's.
"My child, you know me loo well lo

"I cannot I caunot," sobbed Emma,

physician and an old nurse, who had been
for years in their family, had been their
only confidants, and so well had everything
been managed that not one out of their Im

"But how, Cecil, camo you lo think of

In conversing wilh ihem, Emma realized
for the first lime the suspicious nature of
