Sister Rose is bringing up h« little ones in the right away. I' wondi how She came to be living in Pollard’s ottage, though ?” So that 1 When a week after little ’ Baibara was nearly drowned by the up­ setting of a boat in the pond below, and they earned her to Pollard’s cot­ tage, the whole thing seemed a curious 'Coincidence. She Was sitting up, all wrapped in blankets, in Sister Rose’s b ig rocking- chair, when her brothel', who had been sent for, came h u n iedly in. . He raised the hat that shadowed his pale face when he saw the beautiful young brunette who was bending ovei Ins little sister. “Tam not intruding, I hope?’’ ho said, with all chivalrous courtesy. ' And she answered: “ Not in the least, sir.” “ Oh, Harry, H a n y !” cried breathless little Barbara, “ she has bton so good to' me! I was dj’ing and she brought me back to life!” “ 1 thank her from the bottom of my heart !” said Harold Hutton, with a qUiyer in bisVaice. . _ So the acquaintance began; t o d oire month from that hour Harry Hutton, the owner of Hutton Farm’s broadlad acres, the Adonis of the village, the mark of many a matrimonial schemer’s flower- garlanded aiT’ow, asked Sister. Rose—^ whose real name be had discovered to be Rose Blanchard—to be his wife. She lifted the liquid. Oriental eyes Jo his face with sweet gravity. “ I cannot many, Mi’. Hutton,” she said. “ I have my b rother’s tWp orphi children to maintain and educate, vowed it on his death-bed.” “ Nor would I have you break that vow,” said Hany, eagerly. “ They shall become my sacred charge, also. They shall be brought up, carefully and ten­ derly, with my Barbara.” But still she shook h er head. “ Mr. Hutton,” said she, “ we think difierently on many subjects. You were born to a peaceful competence, while I — have alw aj'shadto fight my own way with the world. Oni’ life-paths lie “ By the sun that shines above us at this moment,” cried Hutton, “ they shall i together h e nceforth!” But she smiled that sad. Madonna­ like smUe at his eager enthusiasm. ‘You do not know Who I am,*\ said “ I know that yon aa-e an angel!” “ I am Mademoiselle Eosita Raven, the ciicus gill,” she said, speaking with a little eflbrt. “ The company leave Millville next week, and I must go with them. The childi'en’s mother was a circus girl, also. My brother saw her and fell in love with her, H e was the scene-painter of a theater; and when ■ ley were dead, there were the children, had to do something for them, so I turned‘Equestrienne Queen,’ also. It was not a lofty walk of life, but it was all I could do, and I have done my best. I would not let Barbara tell you who I was, :because---becaiise I dreaded that you should knoW.
