Twas amid these romantic scenes that 1 awaited the sound of tbe lunch-bel- l (which for me was the announcement of breakfast), when I arose from my first nights slumbers under Mrs. Appertb waltes roof; and I wondered if the books were a fair mirror of Miss Apperthwaltea mind (1 had been told that Mrs. Apperthwaite had a daughter).
