pleasantly after dinner, and when the

without saying a word.
It was that of a noble-looking man,

She pointed archly, and with a sweet

"Do tell me the story; I should be de

began his attentions to me, I wasn't at

passion; on the contrary, however, it
seemed only to increase it.
"About this time I formed the ac

rumor reported immensely rich, and
whose intense selfishness was veiled be
neath a manner of the utmost suavity.
His attentions to me were very marked,
and not to be mistaken, and though he
had not spoken of love, he acted and
looked it, and I believed hiin.
"At this time l lived witu my motner,
in our beautiful cottage at North Uentl;
tlie place was very gay, and social par
ties were very large ami frequent; I
mingled in them all, and llarton was my
escort. Sometimes I saw Winslow, but
he seldom approached me.
"It was in October; the atmosphere
dry and cool. As we were returning
from a party late at night, I was much
surprised by the appearance in the dis

climb the sky and quench the very stars.
