The Manor house was flooded with
sunshine. Every window was wide
open, and every room full of the scent
of roses, the perfume of new mown hay.
Mrs. Waddilove and hertwo handsome
daughters, Miriam and Relina, hnd been
gone some six weeks.and as yet showed ,
no signs of returning. Madire and her !
father had grown accustomed to their
absence, end felt no very strong de-iire
to see them come back. They were the
best of friends, these two. and perfectly
happy in each other's society.
In the presence of her mother and her
good-looking siirters, Madge had been
sby, quiet and reserved. But atone with
her dear old father, whom she adored,
the gayety of her heart asserted itseif,
her whole nature expanded, and she be

she did not go to London, (somehow,
the world might rub off the bloom

and I want her to be happy always."

As he stood watching his men stack

that his wife and daughters had come
