Sbe leaned against the window, and,

still sat ia a stricken attitude upon the
rug. "I knew I guessed there was aome

She began to walk rapidly up and down

For an instant Mrs. Scarlett's eyes
flashed: then she leaned back In her seat
and slowly unfurled the big crltneou fan
she was holding, and moved it Indolently
to and fro, while a low, Insolent laugh
broke from her.
"That ao old a friend should hare sent

She was standing now, tan ana nrro,
and waa looking down at Mrs. Scarlett

Marvel, in the atony way she had ac

She knew, with an agony disproportion
ate to the occasion, indeed, yet not to ba

What a kind voice it was! Had he
