The story Is well and simply plotted
and Is cleverly descriptive of a Maine

Hlld Emery, the heroine, Is from the
beginning proved by every test save that
of sacrifice: to deprive her of the u.
devotion that makes her highest oppor
tunity would have been. Mrs. f!mi,lill
makes uo feel, not an act of benevolence,
