How dreadful!" Augustus. the deeply sorrowing, marry before she bad time to get out of black ! It waa a satanic whisper surely, and grossly unjust to the disconsolate widower.

Auguatua was silent. Was it ominous? Four months and two weeks?then a lall tombstone reared iU luftv head amid its aifer tombs in the eharch-ysrd.

Six months and two weeks, and Augustus and his sisters sat in solemn conclave. The great grief was over, the stormy billows had subsided, the elouds had passed away.

I wish to compliment Rachel's memory, which I deeply revere, and I cannot better do so than by marrying again." " Six months and two weeks!" murmured Anabel. ' Can a man mourn forever?" asked Augustas, indignantly. 4 Can a man inourn at all ?" a*ked Myra, speaking for the first time. " 0, my dear sister," sighed Anabol, as the wedding cortege drove from the church door on the following Thursday, and the face of Miss Villers peeped out of the window of the bridal coaeh, ''it is the will in the tin ease that sfflicta me. lie has made another, and has cat us off without a shilling.
