The day l»efore we ware guing to sail, Gordon lounged into the library from the porch, • here be had been sitting, and saw aso on a oiep-ladder nailing something in tbe wall.

Old Jean Chicot, nearly blind, tot tering on tbe verge of the grave, still lingers, and bii worship of Heteae is Dsthetid and beautiful to see. Like a faithful dog he watches her graceful movements, and murmurs to himself: "Helen— my Helene! Itaughther, •nd see how beautiful she is!" And Helene is beantifnl. Her trans cendent beauty increases with her hap piness, and in the infataation that has enthralled me. and will ever hold me. I can see nothing bat perfect happi ness, sweetest bliss in oar fatnre.
