Grace obeyed, and for a few minutes the pair walked on in silence. But the little girl's footsteps lagged, and by and by, with a burst of tears, she came to a full stop.
' I can't-I can't go on!' she sobbed, and dropping Tom's hand, she sank down on the muddy road. ' I feel so funny, so -' Her voice trailed off indistinctly.

` I can't let her lie here,' he reflected. ` I wonder if she's very heavy.'

Nearer and nearer came the horse, urged on by a voice which struck familiarly on the listener's ears.
'It's Moses Lee!' Tom exclaimed joyfully. ° Hi, stop!' lie shouted ; 'stop ! '
