Three hours of each day were devoted to the education of the little girl, who, though vastly inferior in mental endowments to her brother, was an engaging and exceedingly affectionate child, fully worthy of the love which her gifted governess lavished upon her. The remainder of her time Edna divided between study, music, and an extensive correspondence, which daily increased.

"Oh, yes, there is," returned Miss Martha dryly. She was seating herself for her enjoyable morning. She was going to send Selina Lane some of Jenny's receipts. "There will be halibut and egg sauce, lemon meringue pie, and various other things served in this house at 1.30," she went on, "and I have an idea that you'll take an interest in them." Edna and Sylvia exchanged a thoughtful look.

The next morning, Willy Croup, who had begun to regret that she had ever said anything about blankets, but how could she have imagined that anybody could be so cut up at what that old Shott woman had said? brought Mrs. Cliff a letter. This was from Edna, stating that she and Ralph and the two negroes had just arrived in New York, from which point they were to sail for Havre.

But, by the way, Edna, before you begin, I will say that I think it is about time he should write. Since the letter in which he told about the guano-bags and sent you that lot of money let me see, how long ago was that?" "It was ten days ago," said his sister. "Is that so? I thought it was longer than that. But no matter. Since that letter came, I have been completely upset.

"I don't see a bit of sense to it," declared Edna, "and I didn't then. Eunice and Cricket just laughed and laughed, mamma. Of course a statue couldn't smile." "Edna, you wouldn't see a joke if one walked up and bit you," said Eunice. "Archie said: 'Let's tickle his feet and see if he's-Myles. Don't you see?" "If he's Myles. If he smiles. Oh, yes!" cried Edna, looking really excited.

"I have lived a great many years in the world," she said, "but I have never seen two better young men than Mr. Sinclair and Mr. Richard." They were sitting round the fire in the twilight as Miss Shelton made this little speech; they had come in from their drive half an hour ago; the tea things had just been taken away, and Edna was sitting on the rug at Miss Shelton's feet.

"Miss Earl, may I trouble you to hand this letter to Miss Harding? It was entrusted to my care by one of her friends in New York. Pray be so good as to deliver it, with my kindest regards." As Edna left the house, the pastor took his hat from the rack in the hall, and walked silently beside her until she reached the gate. "Mr. Hammond, your niece is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen."

Chester did not linger long with Edna, however, after relating his experiences and a brief chat on other subjects, made his way to the house where he had left his wounded chum, to whom he gave a detailed account of all that he had done, and of the arrangements he had made for their reaching Brussels. "I would have been all right here," protested Hal.

"What shall I do? what shall I do? She said her heart would be broken, but it is ten times worse for me! The house will seem so dreadfully bare and lonely!" "Just when we were all so happy! Oh, that hateful Miss Carr! why did she ever come? I thought we were going to have such a h-appy summer," sobbed Edna dolefully. "It's always the way! As soon as I make friends, I am bound to lose them."

Hammond dead?" "No, he is almost well again, and needs me no more." "I need you more than anybody else ever did. Oh, Edna! I thought sometimes you would stay at the South that you love so well, and I should see you no more; and then all the light seemed to die out of the world, and the flowers were not sweet, and the stars were not bright, and oh! I was glad I had not long to live."
