In the year 1879 Mrs. Elmslie, being at home, paid a visit to Mrs. Hamilton; and one day she could not help remarking, 鈥榃hen I see how comfortable you are here, and think of your sister, it makes me sad.鈥?Her tone was almost reproachful; for she was mentally comparing A.

About thirty degrees above the horizon, I should think, shone what was like a star, but more splendid than any that I had ever beheld, of a brilliant magenta colour. It was no falling star passing rapidly through the sky, but appeared quite fixed in the heavens for鈥攑erhaps ten minutes. As I gazed with something like awe on its wondrous beauty, suddenly its colour utterly changed; the magenta became white, with a greenish tinge; and then鈥攁s suddenly鈥攖he star disappeared; not as if hidden by a cloud, but as if put out.
