Hor Heart's Desiro

(Continued from page 18.) wrong, he will leave no stone unturned to do everything in his power to make me forget the neglect of years. Do not say anything of what I have told you to the other children. Let us wait and see what the coming days will bring to us."

After Paul had gone to bed she sat thinking of her girlhood days when she lived as a member of her Uncle Henry's household. She saw again the man she loved better than any human being in the world. She saw the old tree by the gate, and felt the kiss which sealed her betrothal to Walter Cecil, and experienced again the thrill of exquisite happiness as she turned to go into the house; and then the bitter pain as she met her uncle at the door, with the demand that she give him up and accept the attentions of Louis Rand. Her whole nature revolted against this, and she went over the whole agonizing scene, that ended with his stating that unless she followed his bidding, the morrow would find her without a home. She lived over the torture of that night, and when the first faint streaks of the gray dawn appeared in the east, she gathered together the few little things she could really call her own, and went out from her uncle's house and had never seen him since.

"Oh, God," she moaned, "perhaps I, too, was to blame. I could have been more gentle in my speech, less hasty in my actions. I do not regret any of my sufferings, but I might have spared him some pain. Perhaps the morning will bring me light."
