Unlv these four had kept ew Eng
land's f adval beneath that roof. The
vacant chair at John Inglefield s right
hand was in memory of his wife,
whom death had natcbed from him
since the previous Thanksgiving.
With a feeling that few would h ve
looked for in his rough nature the be
reaved husband had himself set the
chair in its place next his own, and
o ten did bis eye glance thl herward
as if he deemed it possible that the
cold grave might send back its tenant
to the cheer rul fireside, at least for
that one evening. '1 hus did he cherish
the grief that was dear to him. B t
there was another grief which he
wnnlrl fain have torn from his heart:
or, since that could never be, have
buried it too deep for others to benoia
or for his own remembrance. W ithin
the past year another member of his
housebo d had gone from him, but not
to the grave. Yet they kept no va ant
chair for her.
While .l"hn Inglefield and bis familv
were bitting around the hearth, with
the shadows dancing behind them on
the wall, the outer door was opened
and a light footstep came along the
passage. The laioh f he inner do r
was lifted bv s me familiar band, and
a young girl came in, wearing a cloak
and hood, wh ch she took off and laid
on the table beneath the looking
fla8. Then after gazing a moment
at the fireside circle, she approached
and too the seat at John Inglefield'a
right band, aa .f it had been reserved
on purpose for her.
"iler I am at last, father," said
she. "You ate your Thanksgiving
dinner without me, but I have co
back to spend the eveuing with you."
) e, it was 1'rudence Inglefield. She
wore the same neat and maidenly at
tire which sie had been accustomed to
put on when the household work was
over for the day, and her hal was
parted from her brow in th erniple
and modest fashion that became her
Wstofall. Tf her cheest might other

th fire surtued it with a healthful
bloom. It she had spent the many

grave young minister became as frol

rosebud, forgot that her twin blossom
bad ever been torn from the stem and
trampled in the dust And as for Rob

the bashful earnestness of love new

In short, it was one of those inter

depth of shadow and joy starts forth
in transitory brightness When the
clock struck 8, Prudence poured out
her t father's customary draught of
herb tea, which she had been steeping
by the fireside ever since twilight
"Ood bless you, child!" said John
Inglefield, as he took the cup from her
hand; "you have made your old f ther

It was now the hour for domestie

making preparations for their duty,
thev suddenly perceived that Prudence

was lifting the latch of the door.
"Prudence, Prudence, where are yon

As Prudence passed out of the door

but her face was so changed that the
hardly recognized it. Sin and evil

"Daughter," eried John Inglefield,
between wrath and sorrow, "stay and

For an Instant Prudence lingered
and looked back into the fire-lighted
