"Don't see how we are to reverse our engine," replied Jack, looking each side of the road, where the snow was piled four or five feet. Bertie, however, had not gone for a shovel, which would have been perfectly useless, but to explain the situation and assist in turning round the sleighs. In front of Colonel Rolleston was a huge rampart of snow, extending for some distance.

Cecil was distraite and silent, so Lilla's vivacious tongue attracted around her the gentlemen of the group, and, without any effort of his, Major Fane found himself somewhat apart with Miss Rolleston. Though heart-whole when we first introduced him, he was now really in love with Cecil, that is to say, he approved of and wished to marry her.

Mrs. Rolleston was not a proud woman, and the relief was so great, that she folded Cecil in a silent embrace. "Perhaps, mamma," continued the girl, demurely, "you won't think it necessary to mention this to papa.
