forming some childish

plans by which he could make

his

poor mother comfortable.

Perhaps it was GOD

who

inspired him with the idea ; for he stole out of

the house unobserved, and I did not see him

again

until he returned with

you."

During the recital of this

painful history, the

stranger s countenance exhibited the

deepest in

"

My dear madam," said

he, after

meditating some

time,

"

may you not have been too

hasty in

leaving

your home? Your husband, it is

true, wronged,

most

cruelly wronged you. His senses

might, for

the time, have been fascinated

by that

depraved

woman, while his heart

may have remained

loyal,

and

may even now be

calling, in its

agony, for its

first love."

hope is denied me. I have received

since, and he has

become a confirmed libertine. The wretched

girl

who led him to

forget his honor deceived and

deserted him, and then he

plunged into the lowest

and most criminal

debauchery."

"And

yet we know not," he

responded; "the

human heart is an inscrutable

mystery, and men of

strong and

craving natures often resort to the

excitements of unlawful love, as others seek to

drown

unhappy recollections in the

intoxicating

bowl."

She looked at him with an

eager, wistful

gaze.
