lest she would discover my identity.
I. determined to leave her service at
Tbe same afternoon, going luto the
room where I had handed her her let

Curious to know what bad been writ

Interested in and read it What waa
my surprise to read:

What fatality la tol that has mode
me my slater's servant and caused her
to Inquire as to my antecedents from
the airl I lore aud who, like Lucy. I
separated from me by a great gulf r
George was the only part of my
name Lucy knew. The truth la, be
ing a servant and knowing that 1 bad
been born a gentleman, 1 was senal
tlve even about my name and alwaya
contrived aa far as possible to let my
Christian name suffice. At any rate.
Lacy had not thus far had any. oc
casion to know It Quite often aerv
ante are known to a family by their
flrst name alone. I knew our relation
hip, while Lncy did not I waa Im
pelled by something. 1 knew not what,
to talk with her about thla brother of
here. I Mid to her: -
I suppose, ma'am, from tbe letter
you got -that your brother's name la
Deertng. I know or did know a fel
low of that name, but he couldn't have
been your brother, for he came oat of
an orphan asylum."
"Then he la my brother!" abe ex:
claimed excitedly. "Can yon tell me
where I can find him?" -
I wouldn't Ilka to do that, ma'am.

"I learned that and wrote to one of
the persons whose butler, I also learn

It waa hard struggle with me. For
a few moments I waa thinking what
excuse I could make to get away from
her. but she was so Intent on tbe mat
ter that at last, yielding to a desire to
be reunited to her. I said:
"Lucy. am George."
Though I wore her livery, abe threw
her arm about me, woman like, be
fore proving my identity, but it was
not long before I had told her enough
about our Uvea and our misfortunes
aa children to convince her that I waa
no Impostor. When we came to the
matter of my future Lucy said to me:
"I have been thinking alnce I learn
ed something of you what to do with
you In case I found you. Ton are. of
course, uneducated. Ton must have a
private tutor at once and prepare for
college. Ton will enter when most
men are graduated, but we can't help
"But the funds? Surely you wouldn't

He would gladly give them. He
knows my antecedents and knowa that
I have a brother who waa not so for

on him. The lady who adopted me
when she died left me a good prop
