McMurtagh looked dubious; and the little maid, divining that the discussion of her was unfavorable, fell to tears, and then ran up and dried them on McMurtagh's business waistcoat. "You take the gold," said he dryly; "I'll carry the child myself." "Where?" inquired young Bowdoin, astonished. "Home," said McMurtagh sharply.

Nothing but his death will ever make it possible for me to send for Mr. Clavering." Then, seeing me look aghast at the long period of separation which this seemed to betoken, blushed a little and whispered: "The prospect looks somewhat dubious, doesn't it?
