    i Aunt Diana :
The Sunshine
of the Family
OltAPTKR NX. fContInued.1
The next few weeks passed happily for
Alison; she had her dearest friend with
her, nnd what metre could she nsk for?
Aunt Dinnn had settled down quite
comfortably In her niche, us though sho
were one of the family. Without mak
ing herself unduly prominent, or In any
way trenchinjf on the young housekeeper's
privilege, she yet contrived, with quiet
tnct, to lighten Alisons burden and pro
cure her the rest sho so much needed.
Alison resumed her walks with Roger,
while Aunt Diana nmused Missie or read
to Mr. Merle. During the day 'Alison
was too muoh engaged to enjoy much of
Aunt Diana's company, but Miss Carrlng
ton insisted that she should resume her
painting lessons as soon as Missie was
atleto be with her father: and she also
contrived that she and Alison should have
one of their old refreshing talks as often
as possible. Nothing rested Alison so
much as intercourse with Miss Carrin;
Ions strong, vigorous mind.
Aunt Diana quickly found her way into
Missie's wayward little heart, anil she
soon turned her influence to good nccounr.
une afternoon, when
little, av though she feared how her
words might be received, for Miss Car
rington had n horror of gossip "I am
half afraid that there Is n now trouble
In store for poor Annn."
"You mean Eva's marriage. I think
that will be n good thing for her: there
is no real sympathy between the sisters."
"No, I meant something quite different.
I have been nt Mnplewood a great deal

"Do you, Allle? Well, wonder sits

very solemnly,
""There are no fools like old fools,'
Allle. and there Is certainly no neeount-

husband Is enough for any woman; but
I no not pretend to regulate the world.
Don't trouble your little head about it.
I have r. notion that, step-father or no
step-father, Anna will have her share of
Gods sunshine. And Miss Carrington
smiled n queer little smile that mystified
Alison, but she said no more,
There were some things of which Miss
Carrington never spoke, to young people.
She often said: "A girl's mind ought to
b as clear as crystal and hold no re-
a-cis u crystal reflects everything. I
wish older people would remember that,'
And nothing displeased her more than
the careless talk of some mothers. "They

nnd found her way to her father's heart?
That he loved and trusted her, that she
was growiug daily dearer to him, Alison,
with all her humility, could not donht-
but Missie was still his petted darling
the very suffering she had caused him
brought them nearer together.
It was a lovely sight. Miss Carrington
thought, to see Missie sitting for hours
patiently beside her father's couch read
ing or talking to him. But for her aunt's
tigiinnt care her liealth wOuld have been
permanently injured by her devotion to
him; before she left she made Missie
faithfully promise to take her daily walk
and to resume her singing.
"You must leave something for Allie
to do," she said, with a smile; "I can
not sanction monopoly. We must watch
against sejfishness, dear child, even in
our best actions: we must not be over-
exacting In our affection love sometimes

Aiina was a constant visitor 'to The
Holms during Miss Carrington's stay;
tiiey had taken a great fancy to each
other. Anna told Alison privately that
she thought Miss Carrington was the
most beautiful woman she had ever seen.
"I don't know about her features,"
Alison bad answered; "I don't think peo
ple consider her handsome, but it is a
dear face, and that is all I care about."
"I am never tired of looking at her,'
returned Anna, with girlish enthusiasm;
up with rubbish.'
Miss Carrington took a great deal of
notice of Roger, and sought every oppor
tunity to be with him: she had a great
respect for his character, which, she said,
wn a most uncommon one.
"Roger differs from the young men of
hi generation." she said once to Alison;
"he cares little for other people's opin
ions, unless he knows them to be In the
right mere criticism does not influence
hi in in the least."
She took a great Interest In his work,
and made herself acquainted with the
details of the business. Roger wondered
a little at the quiet pertinacity with which
she questioned him: saie even followed
hhn to the mill, and sat In the timber
ynrtl watching the men at work.
After a few conversations with Itogcr
she spoke very seriously to her brother-
in-law; she told him Roger was very
young for such a responsibility. "He is
a good lad, and would wear himself out
in your service, Alnslie, and that without
a word of complaint, but he looks too
old and careworn for his age; you must
remember he is only two-and-twenty yet
he must have his play time, like other
"But how am I to help him, Diana?'
asked Mr. Merle, fretfully. "It is not iny
fault that I am lying here like a log.
The boy must work, or what would be
come of us all?"
'My dear Ainslie, you misunderstand
me." she replied, gently. "Of course Roger
must work, but surely he needs help for
so large a business. Have you put no
one in your last manager's place?"
"No, not yet." he returned, evidently
struck by her practical good sense. "Rog
er never proposed It, and I was too in
dolent to think about It; but there Is
Murdoch, a Scotchman he has been with
us a long time, and he Is an honest fel

family. I will ask Roger what he thinks

earnestly; "Roger is rather too hard

Merle, rather sadly. "You shall liave

Aunt Diana's unselfishness and patlcnca
were rewarded when at last the desired
letter from Alison arrived. Its bright
sentences sounded to her like a ripple of
soft laughter from youthful lips. "We

Alison repeated this speech ; she

true. But Miss Carrington shook her
