An v/rerpower.ng vanity made Ada nx-re eon tvient of her power over hot ot tha sterner ee.v; aa-1 ?he believed that only a slight yielding ef lort on ber part was neee-?ary to brfog the doc tor to bar side. | Owo^nf ber ew^tnme t'er the evening. Ada 1 wraytd herself with great care, and in a rtvle j th%t she balleved would attract attention. The iatfhion of ber drew wae that of a hundred year- azo. and the material a rich old bncade, i in which her grandmother had d<tneed the miu- : naet many a time, in her younger day*. Calm in her <x*m<ious Pywer, Ada joined the ? gsj a oopany at her friend's, and ker quick eye* : ?'-n ma*le kc /wn the ftet that Dr Bedford w?m : "?ready prevent, ller heart beat quieker, and ' tbe color uf ber cheeks grew deeper ; but no one | wnld read :n her well eehoolea face a trace of t r '-at wae pacing in bar mind.

Kven Dr Bedford appeared u> enjoy himself ait much ad any. But the beautiful eoouette, ahoee peculiar style of costume attracted all eyes, h*d for onre. lo*t tbe gay exterior for which she wae ever distinguished, and there were but few present by whom this was not re marked. i One? or twice Ada wae thrown directly into tbe company of Dr. Bedford, when he treated . her with an cade and politenees that, more than t anything else, tended to extinguish the hope that b ul arisen into a flame in ber heart Had t ho manifested any emotion, had he looked | grave, troubled, indignant, proud, haughty, or I anything else but calmly indifferent and self- . I-uesaseed, Ada would have felt ?ure of her I power over him. But a perception of the real < truth was as distant to hor as if the most am- . j hatic words, sealing her fate, had been ut- ? to red in ber ears. Earlier than tbe rest.
