of the Family
CIIAITKK XIX. (Continued.)
It was a lovely evening, a Mlseie iM
one of Hiose rare Seitember evenings
that eowe when summer and autumn seem
bleeding fnto each other. Alison stood
for a nwincnt In tlic ball, debating wheth
er she was too tlml to seek lloger In the
timber yard, or whether she sIiohM In

advantage-. Site decided after a Moment
tint she vii too dull for even Roger's
cotuiny to eli lir for she wa In on
of those mood that the taaculine mind
find no dltncult to understand and she
was Jut taking down her garden hat from
the peg when a (leu re came lelweeu her
and the evening light, a familiar voice
poke her name, and the next moment All
Mil was In Aunt Diana' arm.
MIm Carrlngton' kleii were very
grno and tender. They spoke volumes,
but C le seemed to hare no word at the
moment. Jlut Alison'. "Oh. Aunt 1)1!"
was more than eloquent the quiver of
ber voice meant ecstasy. Hut the next
tnonwnt Miss Carrlngton put ber at arm
length, and. Mill holding her, scrutlnlicd
her face almost pitifully.
"Allie. my poor, dear ehtUl, wbat have

"Vra. I knew," replied Miss Carrlng
ton. almost abruptly all the more be
cause her feelings were not so well un
der control as usual. "Allie. what must
yoa have thought of my silence? Come,
let us sit down somewhere where I ran
talk to you without interruption. I don't
want to ee any other face but youra
for the present not even Hoger."
"I think my non will be best," re
turned Alison, heidtating a little. "Miss

evening. Walt a moment. Aunt 1)1,
please: I must ask Ha rah to make some
tea for you-r-aupper will not be ready
for an hour. Oh," smiling archly, "I
know your taaie Aunt 1)1 eau not go
without her tea."
Mln Carrlngton offered no remon
strance; perhaps she waa In need of re
freshment. 8he waited to see the cab
man deposit her luggage In the hall, and
then abe followed Alison upstairs.
"My dear." she observed, looking round
her aa she entered, "tbU is not your W
room; I thought this waa MUsle's!"
"Yes, but Missle bad mine, and I did
not Hke to turn ber oat It would only

not look so grieved. Aunt DI: I have
got used to it. and da not mind the eraet
so much as I did at first at laast, it doe

"And you never toM me. I could not
have borne to have thought of you in
this room. Allie. 'Veil, you bare spared
me many a heartaehe. I should bare
wanted my child bark In her little nest,
nd bare been unhappy became I could
not get her." And MIm Carrlngton jo
Itlvety shuddered as she looked at the
grim lines of tbe crane, and round the
dark, bnavlly furnished room.
"I am glad I did not tell jou," re
turned AUaon, gently, aa she unfastened
Mln Carrington'a mantle and waited on
tier. I'erbap Aunt Diana loved to feel
tbe soft little bands busy about ber, for
he offered no resistance as Alison
smoothed ber balr. and brought her a
footstool, of which she took possession

"Aunt DI, do 'you mean that you have

"You may be. wire that I should have
flown to you If I bad the power," return
ctl Miss Curriagtou. seriously. "Allie,

I waa recalled suddenly, a fortnight ago
by Mr. Moore's audden Hint. Orevllle

with a fast paling fare.

Ob, I am i glad, relumed Alison,
brightening nt this. "Aunt -DI It was
not good of jou to keen Mr. Moore's Ill

have shared your anxiety. Dear old man,
I am so thankful he Is spared."
"Ills character seemed lovelier than
ever In his hours of suffering," obiervod
Miss Carrlngton, thoughtfully; "he wns
so patient, so grateful to us all for our
rare of him. I understood then what

ed Alison, In an awestruck voice. "How
strange It seems that he should be so
willing to go."
"Why not?" replied her aunt. "Death
has no terrors for him. Wliy should he
fear the summons from the Master whom
he loved and tried to serve here, and who
died on tbe cross for his redemption! And
yet he was resigned to stay, for (Ire-

"How I should hive to see blm again!"
exeiaisaed Alison with a sigh.
"So you will by ami by, I hope. He
missed you dreadfully, Alison."
"Ami you. Annt Dir
"I am not going to tell you about that."
Then, aa AHson'a eye looked ideadlng,
she continued earnestly: "Child. I believe
we are a sort of necessity to each other
nt leant. I find my life will not shape
Itself properly wlthouj, you. I am always
thloklng bow Allie will like this or that.
Your absence quite took away the pleas
ure of my trip. You naughty child, you
look delighted: but there come my tea
please pour me a cup, and then tell me
all about your poor father."
Alison was soon narrating the story
of the last fortnight. MJss Carrlngton
had received hers and Itoger'a letters late
the previous night, and Mr. Moore's had
put her In iwswudon of the latest news:
still there was mueb that she wished to
bear. She listened attentively, and with
out interruption, as the girl poured out
the history of ber hopes and fears. Her
grave. Interested face, and now ami then
a tightened grasp of Alison' hand, spoke
la mute sympathy, but otherwise she said
"It hat. been a dreadful time," SnMxd
Alison. "Itoger and I were so afraid of
papa, ami thee Mlssie was so nnbapw
and ill. That is Itvger'a whistle. Aunt
DI 4 is wondering what has become of

Itoger's look of Intense surprise amtiud
them excessively, but be wekumed his
auut with evident satisfaction.
"Now Allie will be all right again,"
be observed, with a smile at her; "she
has been sick for months, Aunt Diana.
You are not going to take her away from
us Jst at present, are youV"
"No. not Just now." returned Miss
Carrlngton. quietly. "I am golHg to stop
until you are tired of me, and then Allie
and I must say good-by to each other for
a little longer. What should yon say to
bringing ber for a few weeks In the
spring. If your father get better? You
look In want of a change, Itoger: they
are working you too hard, my boy."
"You tstttt not tempt me, Aunt Diana,"
be returned, rather gravely. "There, will
b no holiday for me next year. The
whole coHcorn rest on my abouldtra at
prwent, and our manager I a defaulter.
Alison shall go with you, and welcome."
"Well, well, we must see about It;
winter come before spring. There Is
plenty of time, and 1 don't mean to glv
up my plan of having you and Allie to
gether. Now I must e your father;
will you take me to hlmV" And Itoger
consented with alacrity.
In the Msage she stopped and laid
ber hand upon hi arm.
Thank you for taking care of Allie:
I know how good you liave been to her."
"It Is iie wbo has been good to us," he
returned, with a sudden flush. "Aunt
Diana, you do -not know tbe blessing she
ha been to us; we have to thank ou
for that. Alison would never have bn
tbe girl she I If you bad not taken so
much pain with hex."
"Don't moke roe tain, linger."
"MII and I have proposed buying
ber a little red mo'rooeo book and pre
senting It to her," continued Itoger, with
dry humor; "the title will be 'Aunt Di
ana' Hayings,' for Allie bring out a
fresh one every day. Missis aya she I
lnventlc, and coins tliem herself; but I
have an Idea that tbey or genuine."
Mis Carrlngton hook her bead at
blm, and only bade him lead the way
to hi father' room. Alison had already
prepared him for hi slstvr-In-law' vllt,
and be held out bla hand with a pleased
'Till I kind, Diana. I said the al
ienee was not like you; my poor girl
here baa been fretting herself about It;
but of course you never got tbe letters."
"No, Indeed; Alison will tell you about
It rntly. It Is too late for dm t
prviong my uu now. nivalin inouui
be quiet nt this hour. You see 1 under
stand nil about It, Alnsllc; but I am griev
ed to the heart to see you like this."
"You must not make yourself unhappy
about It; It Is only n case of v.itlcnct
and 1 have good, attentive children, t
wish their mother could see tbemj she
was nlnoj so prowl of them."
"Yes. indeed! l'oar Florence, you
must mlM her. Alnslle." And Mis Car
rlngtim'n lip quitered slightly, for her
slater had been the object of her dearest
affection, she bad neer felt so drawn to
Florence's buhatid as she dhl now . her
Cray eye rested upon him pityingly.
"Children, you Hunt take care of your
aunt; ahe must be tired with her Jour
ney. To-morrow you most come and alt
with me. Dmna." MIm Carrlngton felt
herself gently dismissed. but eh did not
misimdcntaud dim, and. prelng bis
banil Madly, she hdlewed the othets from
Mlstte reMvnl the acus of Aunt Di
ana's arrlinl with an exclamation of dls
may, ami a hot llusli came to her face.

Now, MIm Camuglon bad quick .ears,
and she caught tko wwt of this speech
and laughed to herself softly; for It Is
those who try hard to I good who are
the most conscious of ell within, and
Mtsa Carrlngton was one who had often
cried with St. IMul, "The good tMt I
would I do not." I lee heart felt very
soft toward the willful little girl who bad
brought such relsry on herself ami oth
ers, eien before she entered sfce room, Uit
btr first sight of Mlsete gave Iter a feel
ing of surprise. She sahl afterward she
ceased to wonder at Alnslle's Infatuation ,
for tbe child, for she was certaluly a be
witching little creature.
The pink ribtxHts in MUsle's ibilnty
dressing gown were not pinker than Iter
rheeks, her blue eyes shone with un
easy light, ami tbe soft, fair hair lay Ik
delicate ring above the pretty, chlklUh
face; Iter rlgbteaed, apteallng hk would
have touched a colder heart than MUs
Carrlngtan's. and It was wlah real affec
tion that site bent over her. Ilut Mlssle'a
tender conscience made her aaritik from
her aunt's kisses.
"l'lease don't be so kind to me, Aunt
Diana every one is, and It Is not right."
"My dear little girl, we none of in
