CHAPTER V HOW THE BULL, UPSET JOSH HETHERINGTON'S PLANS. It was a beautiful May morning the first of ,the month, but every thing was unusually forward, for the time of the year-the trees in Wynth shay Park were beginning to burst into leaf. Twenty y.ears had elapsed since Joshua Hetherington wooed Sabina Ossington. The trees that had been saplings then were now full grown ; the old house had changed little, save that the ivy which then covered it had grown thicker ; the garden look ed much the same as it had done when the stranger from over the seas took possession. But there was a change in the master of the house as he stood looking out of the win dow, as he had done so long ago, over tho gardens and the park. Twenty years ago Josh had black hair ; now it was iron-grey. His fea tures had become more hawk-like ; his face, which had never worn a par ticularly pleasant expression, was now harsh and forbidding ; moreover, there was a crafty expression in his eyes which to a student of...

"1 am glad Mrs. Jennain is out, as I have something I wish to say to you," replied Josh, as he seated him self near her, looking at the refinsd but sad lace, and from her his eyes wandered to the lovely old garden and beyond it to the well-wooded park. Then before his mind's eyo there rose a vision of a rustic bench at one side of a field-path, and a girl shabbily dressed, vrho listened with blushing face, but the light of joy on it, to his words of love. That had been his first wooing, very, different rom this ; then be roused himself.
