Mrs. Clark came into the sitting room sud
'denly, and the girl lifted her head, and then
turned it away quickly, bul I'Ot until the f.rU
glance told the lady that the fair roso was
swollen undstiiined with tears.
.Janet Hill was a young seamstress whom
Mrs. Clark had occasionally employed for the
lu.-t six months. She 'was always attracted hy
her young bright face, her modest, yet digni

that some "rent sorrow had smitten tlifl girl.

' Nothin ; that anybody can help," answered
the girl, trying still to avert her fac e, while

She was an orphan, supporting herself hy
her dailv labors, nnd she had cine brother,

there was evcrv pmspeet of his promotion;
hut he had seriously injured himself in the
summer hv lifting some bei.vv hales of goods,
and at ln-t a dangerous fever set in, which
kl finally 1 ft him in so exhausted a state
that the lloctor despaired of his recovery.
"And to think I shall never see him more.

broke iiov. it in a storm of tears.

rninlorted th sitd hrt of the seamslro.
The lady wont up staus and took the piece
out of her ivory port inounaie. There was a
hrief, sharj. struggle in her mind. "Somehow
I've set my heart on this velvet cloak," klm
thought, "and lMnrd will he disappointed.
