Arrived within sigtit of her abode, he fancied he heard a stifled groan, but his thoughts, steeped in joy, dwelt not on it In a moment after, a distinct and tearful scream, as of one in agony, burst on the atillues* ..f the night It eauie from tho direc tum of Kathleen s cottage Inspired with a horrible fear, ha ran wildly forward?another, and another terrible stream followed; there was uo longer doub*? it was the voice of hi* Kath lean With wad de?p?*ration. he reaohad the platfc ju?t in ti ne to see the figuro of a man. who. in the doubtful light, ho could not recog nize. rush from the door and disappear in dark ness In br?arhloss horror Luke entered, rtroat Heaven' what a sight met his eyes.

'?Aud here is the fatal instrument with whieh it has been effected, said another, as Le picked np a ^ory knife from the floor. It caught the eye ot Luke. ??

Luke oaly smilod?a ghastly, soul-erushed smile, most awtul to look upon at such a time; his heart was too full for words Reason, whieh had boon dethroned by this unexpected blow, had scarcely yet returned to its seat, for all uuaousoioualy bo still held the lifeless form f.gbtly clasped in his arms, gazing with a sort Ot slouy expression upon the l'aoe of hor who had been to biui tho world. ft was not until they approached to seize him fur killing her that he seemed to b? thor oogbW aware of b>* position "What would yon do. trie nds7'' said ho, mournfully, as they endeavored to force him away " Would jou deny mo tho sad oomlort of dying hor presence ?

In despair, she steppedand sat down, and tears treakled down her once plump and ruddy cheek. "Alas' Nancy, early marriages a/-e not tho dodge Better enjoy youth at home, and hold lovers at a prober distance until you have muscle, limb and heart enough to faco a frown ing world and family. If a chap really cares for you be can wait two or three years, mako presents, take you to concerts and so on, until the time comes Karly marriages and early cabbages are tender productions.
