Upon this Miss Jane Desmond raised her head and looked reproachfully at her sister- Years had not taught her that nothing would cure that lady of her love of cavilling at her niece and at many other things she liked much better than her niece. .Nor would dear Miss Jane, ever learn that there is nothing so hopeless of good result as a reproachful glance. It generally irri tates the person at whom it is directed, but it is seldom indeed that it either overawes or humiliates. Miss Jane, dear soul, was much too good and too true a woman to be a very wise one. Her kind heart rose up at am? at once in the face of what she deemed injustice or cruelty. And when it was Sybil who was attacked, Miss Jane Desmond fought for her with more passion than prudence. A cool head and a clear brain went down before tlie power of a very tender and affectionate heart, which robbed its owner, a...
