And I have given thee a crown that none can take away.
But how this is sweet maid, I know not, and I cannot know
I ponder, and I cannot ponder; yet I live and love.
The daughter of beauty wip'd her pitying tears with her white veil,
And said, Alas! I knew not this, and therefore did I weep:
That God would love a Worm I knew, and punish the evil foot
That wilful bruis'd its helpless form: but that he cherish'd it
With milk and oil I never knew, and therefore did I weep,
And I complaind in the mild air, because I fade away.
And lay me down in thy cold bed, and leave my shining lot.
Queen of the vales, the matron Clay answered: I heard thy sighs.

Then the "fairy-man" of the village, who was keeping watch
with the family, heated a pair of tongs red-hot, and with
deafening shouts all burst at once into the sick-chamber. The

one occasion her nervous symptoms have returned with much
depression and again an attempt at suicide. She was now
carefully studied in a hospital for signs of insanity, but again
it was determined that she was not of unsound mind. She made a
speedy recovery, adjusted herself once more to her surroundings,
and after a few months became married. During the last year or
so there has been no further trouble. A settlement of the law
suit for injuries was made before her more recent period of
depression. At the time of even her last attack we can learn of
no more false accusations having been made. The family attitude
about her has, all along, not been what it should have been to
