thought the acutest of human emotions, is hardly more depressing than to discover that we have got beyond our depth in virtue, and are in water where we really cannot quite swim,--and this was the good woman's position. During her whole wandering though blameless life,--in her girlish days, when she charmed snakes at Meddibemps, or through her brief time of service as plain Car'line Prouty at the Biddeford mills, or when she ran away from her step-mother and took refuge among the Indians at Orono, or later, since she had joined her fate with that of De Marsan,--she had never been so severely tried. That child was so smart, she said, beneath the evening canvas, to her sympathetic spouse. I always expected when we got old we'd kinder retire on a farm or suthina, and let her and her husband — say Comstock, if he was young enough --run the business. And even after she showed us the ring and things, I thought likely she'd just come into her property somewheres and take care of us.
