a great ;many things he was sorry

for the old gentleman.
Marion tried her best to dislike

it was this that interested her so

to shake his head at her wilful cou-

spell over her that was every day
becoming harder to resist. Indeed
she was miserable ever since he

Spence Amott, whom she' loved !
did not like John Dutton, and she
was growing colder towards him
" I Will have him regard me as
the chief of sinners. I will not al
low him to come between me and
Spence P cried Marion. "I will b
as wicked as I possibly can before
him ;" and unthinkingly, Marion
threw her little pet dog, which- she
had been fondling, froni her lap as
she rose lro,m the seat on the porch.
ihe dog struck the stone iloor in
a manner that made him howl pite-
ously for a minute, and that moment
John Dutton appeared and shook
his head cravely at Marion. He
spoke not a word, Marion under
stood him, and said :
" It's only a dog, and any way it's
mine, ana 1 shall do what 1 please
" Only a dog, Miss Marion !"
"He that prayeth well who loveth well,
And things both great anil small ;
For the dear God who lofCfb us,
Hath made and loves us all,"
Marion's eyes filled wih tears.
Something in the depth of his brown
eyes, something in his gentle voice
touched her heart with remote.
He cast an influence over her that
she could not easily lesist. Just at
that moment she felt like telling him
that she did not mean to do that
cowardly act, but just as she was
about to speak Spence Arnott, who
been in the house unknown to her,
stepped out upon the porch. The
tears were still in Marich's eyes,
and as a -matter of course, she look
" Ah, I beg pardon for intruding,"
said Spence, about to step back.
' You are not intruding, Mr. Ar
nott; I believe you have a right
here F said John Dutton, quietly,
and turning away he . entered the
. . " Marion, what does this mean ?"
cried Spence, an angry flush spread
ing to the roots of his hair, as 'he
perceived Marion' agitation.
O Spence F' cried tho impetu
ous girl unable to control the tear
which were fast rolling down her
cheeks; ''don't be angry, he is" so
good!" . . ,
"SogoodI , I hate him,, there 1"
and Spence Axnott 6trode angrily
away. . '
Marion stood looking afterSpence
She was the picture of grief and de
spair, and John Dutton S heart was
filled with sorrow as he watched
her from tho window. He came to
this house to meet his late a fate of
which he now little dreamed. Jle
had learned to love the handsome,
wilful girl standing out there on the
porch, . but that look on her face
now 'as she gazed after Spence Ar
nott, told him beyond doubt, where
her heart was. jje'had nothing to
hope for" , .
l nat nignt jom uutton was
awaked from his sleep by some great
confu-dou in the house. Through
his window' he saw that the sky was
in a blaze. ? There .was a bisr fire
somewhere in the neighboihood,
and m an instant ha was 'up 'and
dresjed. He went down stairs, and
the first one he met was Marion, in
bonnet and cloak, crying and wring
ing her hands.
