BELLA LISTENS TO A GRUiLSOMlE STORY. Inside the tram lines straw had been laid down before the little house in the Kennington-road, and every thing possible done to exclude noise from the sick room. The rear of the premises was fairly quiet-saeve for the snorting and screaming engines, as the suburban trains ratlied by, causing the very floors to shake un der tihe vibration. And at every shtick and whtbtle Adeline started violently in her deli rium. She appeared oblivious of her surroundings-so far as to ilma:gie: herself back at Pendower-and yet, in the midst of her wander n ;s she seemed to recognize Bell:, to clitg to Della as her one and only friel--the belief that "blood ran thicker thian water" seemed to pervade her will est delusions.

It appears that on one occasion Phil May had in one of his irresis tibly comic pen and ink sketches de picted W. G. fielding "cover-point." Unhapplyl tile sketch was not pubh lished until the winter, when cricket had been abandoned. Dr. Grace found considerable merriment in the picture, inasmuoh ans lie was portray ed{ as wearing a pair of gloves for his field work. He promptly wired Phil May in these terms : "Why, oh, why does cover-point wear wicket-keeping glovew 7-Grace." In the hope of elucidating the myn tery at once he prepaid a reply, buhit none arrived during the day. In the early hours of a wintry morning Dr. Grace was nlddenly aroused from his, saltaners by the vIolent ringingg of the hell, and, hastily' donning his dressing-gown, 110 proceeded to his front door. A fearful blast of anow greeted himl and a telegraph me...
