"You'll be able- to see her for yourself then." "Oh!" responded the boy, laconical ly. "You'll not be so indifferent then,' said the father. "You'll be madly in love with her before she's been here a week." Harry shrugged his shoulders in contempt. "It's time we understood each oth er thoroughly, dad," he - said.

He was actually longing for the girl's ar rival. Then the malignant Fato in terfered. Harry had been most carefully train ed iu the manufacture of woollens, and had for some time been In full control of his father's extensive mills, while Silas had more- and more given his attention to buying ahd selling in Bradford. One Monday morning there was an unusual application for employment at .:he AVoollerton Mills. A very attrac tive, rosy-clieeked girl of about t...
