By J. H. Ingraham

Today shall finish my servitude to poverty. as the coincidence of delivery has solid my lot inside of those wretched partitions, and made me fellow-prisoner with penury, as a result shall I no longer throw off my chains while i'll?

But," she added, with playful assurance, "this may yet be even as I have said! Nay, don't shake your head so determinedly! " said Kate, startled that her feelings should have been so well divined; shrinking with maidenly shame that the strength of her love and the weakness of her resolution should be discovered to her observing cousin, and involuntarily resenting, with the impulse of a woman at such a time, the imputation.

Just what I don't wish him to think," she said, with singular decision. " cried Grace, holding up both hands. "Well, this love is an odd thing! What instinctive coquetry! ' I don't understand this disguising love under a show of coldness—seeming to hate where the heart pants and glows with devotion. Oh, if this be love, I'll none of it.
