The valley was in shadow, but the long light lay upon the hills, changing the crags to a wonder of purple and gold. To him, too, came the breath of apple bloom, but it brough no joy to his troubled heart. What dangers lay in wait for Elaine as she fared forth upon her wild quest? What monsters haunted the primeval forests through which her path must lie?

"'To Love, all things are possible, returned the child; 'but to Love only; and her companion listened to all she said, with a full heart. "By noon that day, an inaccessible cliff stared the travelers in the face. Its mighty crags bathed their feet in a deep pool, and up, up, for hundreds of feet, ran a smooth wall of rock in which no one might find a foothold.

"Indeed I was not," replied Butler; "nor did I speak on the subject the whole time I was at St. Leonard's Crags." "Which road did you take to St. Leonard's Crags?" "By the foot of Salisbury Crags," was the reply. "Indeed? you seem partial to circuitous routes," again said the magistrate. "Whom did you see after you left the city?"
