"Mummy is asleep," said Frank, •'and Dody would not liko to vex her, and Frank will stay with him, and play ames;" he paused, groaning, and turn t!d aside—he could mil hear the child's lear eyes upon him, and thought himself turning into a woman, so incapable was ho of self-control.

Doily, with perfect faith; "and we'll take her tho nosegay," ho added, even whilo Frank noted that the (lowers had already withered in the grasp of tho lit­ tlo feverish hand.

I'll Aw him," ho said, stamping his foot, and without perceiving Frank naughty Digges to hurt my mumuia when I'm a big man I'll sliool him dead;" then all at once threw himself face downward on the ground, crying out, "Mother, mother!"

I "No," said Dody, "grandpapa's dead, I mummy put lowers over his head; but mummy's only gone to sleep, Frank says so. Didn't you, Frank?" Frank turned aside ami asked for pon ftnd ink, and sat down with Dody on his knee, who watched him with deepest interest 11s ho wroto a telegraphic message K> the most famous doctor of tho dav for disoases of the chest. But," said Josephine, who had looked over his shoulder, "the other doctor will be hero BOOH for master. Can he not prescribe also for Master Dody?" But Frank shook his head; and hav- ingdispalclied tlio mossago, returned to Dody, who was rapidly developing every symptom of inllammatinn of the lungs, and long before nightfall was tossing in his bed, the withered flowers still firmly clutched in his burning hand, his little, unceasing, wistful E laint for his mother piereing Frank's eart. IIo was weary of tolling the child that she slept, and Douno's ab- sonce(l'or ho had mysteriously disappeared, and could not be found either in the house or grounds) caused him a new anxiety. Aud alono, in tho room adjoining Madcap's, Mr. Kyro lay, struck down by the hand of God at the very moment he most inquired his strength, his stertorous breathing alone giving sign that he was numbered still in the ranks of the living. The great man, who arrived I'rom London that afternoon, co'.ild give small hope of him. II1 feared serious apoplexy, and that Mr. Eyra might die unconscious; but thero was no likelihood of a chmi go for probably unothor twenty-four hours. . J-tUter in the dav oamn another visitor to the nouse, who toon Dody on his knee, and asked to see his toys, listening, as if iu-play, to his chest; then after awhile, laid him gently baok in his little bed, ami thinking Frank the father, told tho truth. The child might live three days, it was possible that he would not last out two. There was lung mischief of long standing, precipitated into violent inflammation by a severe chill. Dody smiled, and waved his hnnd to the groat man when ho went away, but during the night began to wander, mid by daybreak liad gcii'e a long, long step of the journey that was to tako him to nis mother. They had found Douno at last, rigid with coltl and grief, beneath the sheet by Madcap's side—her chill hand in both his own, his aching head pressud to the bosom that would never shelter or warm him any moro. Hut ho did not resist when they brought him away, nor did Dody's illness seem to move him— he crept into the darkest comer of tho nursery, thrusting away tho food they would have had him eat. Frank realized then, as lie had never done before, the Intense power of loving that lay in that little heart,and know how of the two, Dody's lot was tho happier. The tnmu It of! confusion and horror without, at the orlme committed, oould not penetrate to the sick-chamber in which, night and day, Frank sat, lie would see no one, take no stops to assist justice; for him the sick fancies of the dyliiB ohild wore of more momnnr tt>«- trtan tna ormguig to aeatn trie slayer of his lost Madcap; and all day long, fasting and BleeplesB, ho looked at the panorama of Dody's short young life that the child's babblings unrolled to his gaze—all the great little events of his three years, all told—his childish troubles, ioy», thoughts—each seoret 0! the little orystal mind laid bare before birn, I wonder how many there are of us who oould bear such a scrutiny us that to whlou a child unconsciously abandons itself. We slide our impulses or dtBgulae them, but the child tins 110 art to nlde his. If we had time to pause and study tho drumn of the Phlld, we should no longer dream of Qpd but uuderbtund lllmi and su'long as there is «uiunpQunt little pne in our mlilafc-.Ouiwi. In nnK nna umnillr 11A UlllA tion of that room in wliich the dead lay anil tho nursery. As tho night drew on, Dody became much worse, and wundorod more—talked of his little kitten, begging Joseph ine to tako care of it whilo lie was away, and lay it in her bod each night to keep it warm—thought it was prayer-time, and repeated a verso of his evening hymn, breaking off into a merry laugh ns ho cried out, "8<tw the Princess of Wales, mummy!" then, as though in answer to some question of his mother, added earnestly, "She looked very U'ffl'jt"— babbled of his little baby-girl, and of how ho would wheel her about in his littlo "pram"—whispered in Frank's oar that he was going to get up early to pick mummy a birthday flower, but ho must not tuU'Douue; then, ns he f ;rew weaker, talked less, but lay quiot- y in Frank's arms, patiently enduring thoso useless rem. di. s that had been ordered, and that gradually the young man ceased, feeling tliem to bo a needless cruelty. Douno looked on with a bursting heart, ho knew they were going to put his mother in a great black boxiiko tho one Unit had taken away grandfather, and ho feared thoy wore going to tako Dody away in it too. Hut mother was silent, and Dody could talk and laugh- perhaps it was all a ugly dream, and no would Vako up to-uiorrow to find everything just ns usual—ami ho climbed into his brother's bed at Wstnnd fell asleep beside him. But as tlio night advanced Dody grew rapidly worse, and Frank, who had sent Josephine to be 1, took tho littlo restless body in his anas anil walked with him to and fro. In the deadest hour of the night, when tho silent house showed from the outside but three lights from its windows, for the living, tho unconscious, and tlio dead, Frank heard footsteps coining heavily up tlio stono steps from the garden, aiid a moment after a hand groping for the lock. His heart beat so violently thnt Dody stirred in his uneasy doze; in that moment ho knew the awful fear that had haunted him, and which now took shapo in what stood without, not daring to knock and demand admission. For awhile ho stood rigid, his eyes fixed on tho door, half expecting it, though locked, to part and disclose a terrible figure to his oyes; but tho moments passed, and an absolute silonce prevailed. Ilosat down with the child in his arms, and moistened the feverish lips with a cooling drink, carefully covered up tho little burning limbs, all with no sign of haste, but intensely conscious of ono thing only, that outside that locked door something crouched, aud ho must seo it. Ho crossed the room nnii laid Dody down by his brother's side, nnd Doune, half waking, clasped his arms about him, BO that they looked but two happy littlo lads fallen asleep on 0110 pillow as Frank turned away. IIo lifted a corner of tlio blind nnd saw opposite him the light burning in the room in which his lost, his murdered Madcap lav; his heart grew cold as ice. and tho blood seemed to stagnate, imtl grew chill in his veins ns ho moved toward the door; and after a minute, in which his hand refused its olllce, unlocked tho outer door, and set it open. Something raised itself up. and camo Blowly toward him, then falling back, said, m a hollow, starvod voice, like ono 111 whom the life has sunk too low to furnish strength with which to cry out— "I wanted Josephine." Bv the light that came through the ooor oeiunu mm, lie saw nor plainly— haggard, wild-faced, and travel-stained, whilo about her right hand, outstretched as in fear, was tied a handkerchief soaked through and through with blood As ho Btood ,not speaking,butwithhis arms outstretched as barrier to her entrance, a change camo over her features; she tottered, and almost fell, then- He is dying—ho is datd!" she cried. IIo is ill," said Frank; "but why do you come to him liko a thief in the night? Where linvo you been nil yesterday and to-day?" Sho half looked over her shoulder to that light which burned in the opposite wing, then with n shudder and gasping cry. pushed past him, and ran into the nursery, where, seeing the little brothers asleep, and leaning their heads to each other, sho foil down on her knees besido thorn, uttering a faint "Thank Godl" Outcast, and a something intangible that in Frank's eyes shnpod itself to guilt, wore written on her iace whon she looked up and mot his eyos; then, ns one whose thoughts escape nor, she said, in a whisper— "She's dead. Do thoy know who killed her?" He came near to her; then said—his loathing eyos glancing at nnd away from her blood-stained hand— "Go now—escape before it is too late —for hor sake—because thero must be no scandal over her grave. I will let you go; to-morrow it may bo too late to Iiido yourself from Mr. Eyre." She looked at him vacantly, almost with the expression of an imbecile; and the thought crossed his mind that she was indeed mad, and not accountable for her deeds; but in the same moment Dody 'B painful breathing arrested her attention, and she cried fiercely, aa she Bpriing up, nnd bent over tho child— "He's more than ill, he's dying. What have you done to him while I've boon away?" Sho stooped to lift him, but Frank put her aside. "Can you touch him with those hands?" he added, certain by now that they wore stained with Madcap's blood. Sho looked down at them tor a moment; then as Frank took the child in his nnns she fell on hor knees, with a terrible cent urn of lomrino-— (To be continued.) Wanted to be a Scien­ tific Mummy.
