: Aunt Diana i
of the Family
CItAl'TKIl .Will. (Continued.)
Mlssie had plenty or good sense, and
she no longer stilled It; her consclence
told her thill she would never have sin
ned so grievously against her father l( Kin
had not undermined her principle by her
flutter? nnd playful words of adrlce to be
Independent and acrt herself.
A veil had fallen from her cyea; she
no lonjrrr i lira's conduct In the mri
light, mid a she grew better, nnd lira
sought opportunities to be with hrr. the
disillusion became more complete. MImIc
found herself wondering over ber own In

Strange to say, Rva accepted her rebuke
very meekly evidently her affection for
Missle wax sincere In Its way. tor she
took some (taint to please her. and even
trieil to break herself of her faults. Hut
for her unlucky engagement with Captain
Harper there waa every probability that
Mlssie might hare Influenced her for
good : twit her approaching rn-vrrlage oou
drove all salutary reflection away.
A Mlle'a violent Infatuation for her
friend cooled. she turned more and more
to Alliton for sympathy ; and here at least
she dtdnot find herself disappointed All
son returned her niTectlou warmly.
Mlxsle nan a little exacting as an In
valid, for she was still separated from
her father, and. alas! there was still
cause to be aniioos for him.
lr. fircenwood never told Alison what
he had feared: but after a few day,
when he and another doctor had consult
ed together over the case. It told her
and Hoger that tfcere was certainly some
decree of rolscaiet in connection with the
spine; It would be many nwnths (er
haps a year or two before he could
vi.e from his click.
"We certainly hop for his complete
recovery in the future, be continued, re
assuringly, as Alison turned pale and
Hoger looked unluppy. "Another Inch

his son with a smile. lie and Alison had
come to bid him goud-nlght.
The nurse had not been dismissed,
though It was already arranged that
Hoger should take her place in his fath
er's dressing room.
"I shall hare to leave the mill In your
bands. Greenwood give me no hope of
being fit for business for the naxt year
"I will do everything I can. father."
returned Hoger. sorrowfully: "but I feel
awfully cut up about It all."
"Tiiere Is no need for that, my boy."
returned Mr. Merle. "I should not won
der It jou da better at business than I,
Roger. I'erhap this will be less a trial
to me than you supje. I da not deny,
of course. that it U a trial; but slBI,
with my book and children I shall try
to be content."
"We shall do everything In oar wer
to ease your ralnd." returned Hoger.
bravely. Hut he said no more, and short
ly afterward left the room. leaving his
fstber and Alison together.
"Hoger feels this dreadfully," she said,
anxious tiiat her father should not mis
understand Ms son's lack of words.
"Yes, my dear, I know he does." re
turned Mr. Merle, with a sigh. "1 am
fortunate to have such a son. To think,"
he added, with emotion, "that I could
ever have been so blind as to believe that
villain's Innurndoa against him and now
tbe whole business Is In his bands."
"You can trust him fully, papa."
"Yes, better than I can trust myself.
Alison; that boy li true aa steel, and
will not fail me. I wish I bad found
It out before. I remember your aunt
Diana once saying to me that 'If I stud
led my children aa well as I did my
books I should be rewarded for my pains,'
Ily tbe bye. Alison, what does jour annt
say to all thla unlucky accident?"
"We bave not beard from her." re
turned Alison, In a low voice. "Hoger
wrote tbe very next day after the acci
dent, and I wrote tbe next day; but we
bar bad no reply."
"That U very unlike Diana," observed
Mr. Merle, In a surprised tone.
"Hoger 7 that she can not have re
ceived our letters, papa; you see she Is
In Switzerland, nad perhaps she baa
deviated from tbe proposed route that Is
just ber way; If be take a fancy to a
lilac she will stay there for a day or
two, and then she does not get hrr letters
for days. If we do not hear from her
soon. Hoger think. I had better write to
Mr. Moore. It doea seem so strange"
ber eye- filling with tears "that Aunt
Dl should not know bow unhappy we
"I believe yoq are fretting after her,
Alison you are quite tain and fragile
Hut Alison denied tbla with a great
deal of unnecessary energy. She waa
only a lUtle tired; but now Mabel waa
getting better she would be able to bare
a walk sometimes.
"Hut you must not talk; any more,

be here directly! may t read to you a
little until she comrsV'
Mr. Merle shook hU head sadly.
"My dear. I should like It of all things
but you know Dr. Greenwood has for
bidden any kind of study for the next
few, weeks, nnd I never pared much for
works of fiction, except Sir Walter Scott."
"I meant a chapter or two out of the
Itlble before )oit went U sleep," re
turartt Alison, bluhlug vlth timidity.
A sudden shadow iid over Mr.
"I did not understand you, my dear,"
he said, with a little effort. "Well, child,
do as you likethat sort of reading "
not hurt one."
Alison felt the permission wnj accord
ed rather ungraciously, but still she dared
not refuse to avail herself of It. She
broupht the lllble Aunt DIanaVt gift
nnd sat down quietly by her father's side.
The iiJIee trembled n little as she rend,
but s)io did not know how sw-eet It sound
ed In her father's ear. Once when she
looked up she found his eye fixed on her
face, and stopped Involuntarily.
"Shall I leave off, paai"
"Ye, that will do for to-night; you
may read to me to-morrow. You arc so
like jour mother, Aliwn; she was fond
of her Hlble, too. You are n good girl,
and take after her."
"I'oor dear mamma. How hard It must
he for you, pavi, to lie thero missing"
"Ah!" he said, averting his face. "It
Is a lifelong loss, I think I never knew
any one to good not een Diana could
compare with her. IKj you know you
reminded me so much of her that day
when you wanted me to go to church.
Child, your reproachful eyes quite haunt
ed me. Ah, well! It ever I get well"
He mused with a sigh.
"Yon will come with us then, pjpa."
she said, softly.
"I hope so, Alison, but I fear It will
be a long time before I have the chance.
When a man has looked death In the face,
as 1 bave. who might he leen hurried
Into eternity without a moment's prelum
tion, he thinks a little mere sertoasly
about things. I bop I am grateful far
being spared I think I am. You Aall
come nml read to e every night If you
like, my dear; It ts a grand book, the
Aiken's heart was too full to answer
blin, but as Nurse Meyrlck came Into
the room at that moment she leaned over
ami kissed his forehead.
"Good-night, dear papa; I hope you
will sleep weH."
"Good-nlght." he answered, cheerfully,
"and give my love to Mbwle."
Albou felt strangely happy as she left
her father's room; It seemed to. ber as
though they were coming clor to each
other. There bad been a look In ber
father's eje and a caressing tene in hU
voice that told br that she was becom
ing very dear to him. She said to herself
In ber young gladness that Providence
bad accepted her sacrifice her father's
benrt was no longer closed to her, and
Mabel was beginning to love her. "Ask
and it shall be given to you," was abun
dantly realized In her case mi tree It Is
that lore begets love, that the Divine sml
of charity sown broadcast, even over bar
ren hearts, will still yield some thirty
Md, some sixty-fold, seme bumlretl-foM.
AHsoa's tranquil rest that night wa
only a preparation for a most trying day.
Mimle had left her bed for the rettcai
that afternoon. When Alison bad placed
her comfortably, she bad goae down
stairs for a .few Miaul' to speak to
Anna, leaving MM Iigh in charge. Anna
detained her longer Iban ua she had
so ma eh to say oa the subject of lira's
appreathlnt marriage, ami while Alison
ws still talking and listening. Miss Iigh
hurried dawn stairs with a rery pole face.
"I wish yoa weM come," she salil. la
itwrh agitation: "Ms 11 Is sa very hys
terical I can de nothing with her. lVr
bapa I bave been InrautlesM. but she ques
tioned me ro eJee!y as ta what tile phy
sician said about her father that I maM
not avoid telling her."
"Oh, dear, what a pity. I meant to
hare told ber myself when she waa bet
trr." observed Alison, somewhat reproach
fully. Miss Iigh's tact was often at fault,
and she "bad choen an unlucky moment
for breaking tbe news to Mlssie Just
when site was weary wltb the fatigue of
Alison found her In a sad state fob
bing bitterly, with ber bead bidden In
the pillows and for a long time she re
futwd to allow Alison to raise her Into
a more comfortable position. To ber re
lief, Hoger entered tbe room and asked
Immediately, In hi downright manner,
what 'was tbe matter, and why Mlstde
was making herself 111.
This brought on a fret burst.
"Oh. Hoger! what shaU I do? Poor
"It Is par Mabel. I think." observed
Hoger, kindly, and be raised tbe sobbing
tittle figure In bis arms and brought the
wet face into view. "I declare, child,
you are a perfect Nlobe. Allle, what are
we to do with herJ"
"He will not get up for months per
haps for years and it Is all my fault!"
crlrd Mlssie, passionately.
"rerbapa so, my dear, but do yoa sup
pose all these shower of tears will do
father any goodT"
"1 must cry I ought to cry when I
am so unhappy," returned Mlssie, Impa
tiently, and trying to free herself.
"No, my dear, no," was Hoger" quiet
answer; "you bave given u all so much
trouble that you ought to spare us any
noisy repentance; the best thing you
ran do for us all Is to get as well and
happy aa you can, and help to nurse
Mlssie left off crying and stared at
Roger. He told Alison afterward that
tbeae half-drowntd bias eyta made him
feet 'quite bad lint then Hoger was sttca
a cotl-hcartcd fellow.
"ou do not utiderstnnd," she said nt
last, very slowly.

"Oh, Hoger!" exclaimed Alteon, n lit
tle shoOtrd at this plrtln i-pcuklng. Hut
linger knew what he was ntmt ; he was

"Oh. I can not." she mKI. "I shall be
miserable until papa is well."
"There speaks srlflhnes" he return
ed, quickly. "My dear Mabel, why think
about yourself nt nil? why not think how
tired Alison look, nnd bow yeu may
spare ber? 1 am sure a cheerful word
from you would da her no end of good,"
Mlssie seemed struck by lit words.
She looked at her stster rather serullnli
Incly. Certainly Allwrn dM look pale,
and there were dark rltur rmnd her

"You have no Men how people In a

"Are yon snre. Mabel dr. that you

"Quite snre." was Mbwl' answer, and
then Alison consented to leave her. Shs
was conscious that her strength was fall
ing ber a little; tne dose confinement and
anxiety for the last fortnight were trying
to ber constitution : broken rest at night
often followed the long dav' work. She
was pining, too. for a word from ber dear-
friend. She had written two day ago
to Mr. Moore, questioning him about Mis
Carrington'a movements, but bad received
no answer from the confidential servant
who acted as tbe blind man' amanuensis,
and. In spite of her effort to be cheerful,
she was feeling dull and deserted.
