The biff clock of "the -village church
struck six. It struck .loudly, insistinsly.
as is the way of country clocks, con
fident In Its own value.iand knowing that
it gives the law io everything: within
hearin.tr. Town clocks have a kind of
apologetic way of mixing with the gen
eral tumult; excepting a few others of
this calibre, they generally sound inef
fective. "It is tlie right time, and we
want to tell you, but the noise of those
omnibuses won't let us they interfere so
And there goes. a dray! No, it ieally is
of no use" And they finish their striking
' in a hurried and perfunctory manner.
Nothing of the- sort happened here. The
country was quito still, and the sound
swung away over the quiet fields till it
died out in the hush of the summer cve
k ning. Tho cows v.-ero standing knee deep

wishing placidly at the flies with their
ti tails. The air was filled with the sleepy
twittering of the birds and the chirp of
i the -numberless -insects which make up
the silence of a summer's day. And bc
. hind and through every sound could be
heard the solemn "voice Of the river which
, ran past the old gray church, winding its
l allver way down to the great sea.

bits of string and odd nails. There, in tho
23 intervals of theri education, when their
s 28 -mother was away, which usually, hap
pened for about nine months out of the
twelve, and the French governess was
reading novels in the seclusion of her
(; bedroom, which was also no uncommon
r' occurrence,' they had constructed some
furniture made out of soap boxes and
other handy pieces of wood." "Why they
kept it a secret they could hardly fhave
told. They had begun it long before,
from the innate desire of children to have
d something "secret" from their eldeis, and
k now they were older they were afraid of
y being laughed at. At all events, no one
except "the old butler, who knew every
g thing, had any inkling of their favorite
meeting place, and even now, when they
were Inside their little arbor, which
i i -would barely hold them, sitting, with
S great caution, on the home-made seat

felt an intense relief from tho humdrum

'This placo Is slow." said Gerald, the
only son of tho house, who was sitting on
his own seat In the corner, a box which
was frankly a bos and mado no pre
tensions to bo anything else. Gerald's
inovements were not adapted to humor
frail articles of furniture.

He flicked a careless finger in their direc

vGertrude, the eldest of the three. She

tjo thoso who know themselves to be
yieavily weighted in the race of life, and
is the seal of a class apart.
"You know Mr. Brokn said you would

Mr. Brown had been Gerald's tutor, and
had labored hard, though somewhat un
successfully, to guide him Into the paths
; of learlng. Gerald was fourteen, but he
-jf was delicate, or, at all events it had al
, ways been so believed, and ho had never
1 been allowed to go to a preparatory
school. Now he was to plunge at onco
"Brown was all very well." replied
Gerald, ,with the mngnificent contempt of
the young for everybody else, "but there
arc lots of things he doesn't understand.

going into the guards. Tliat will be oily.

Gerald started so Violently that it was
lucky he had been relegated to the solid
box: no homo-made bench would have
stood such treatment.
'A beauty!" he said, derisively, as" soon
as no recovered his breath. "With your
his mouth and your straggly yellow hair!
Hit, ha! What next, indeed?"
,He took a bit of tho despised hair be
tween h.s finger and thumb, and pulled
It as ho spoke.
Ada mnved "her head away. As a gen
eral thini; she would have fallen upon
lliim and boxod his ears, but the mantle
jof the prophet Avas upon her, and she
felt that such manifestations of feeling,
' however excusable, would be incon
gruous. "I know I shall be a beauty," she re
peated, more solemnly than before. "I
heard mother talking about it to made
moiselle. She said that with my hair
and eyes and contour (what's that ,1 won
der?) that when she had made my figure
and complexion what they should be (I
wonder how she will do that?) I should
make a sensation, and mademoiselle said
qu'to gravely, 'Ello ira lion!' I wish I
knew exactly what they meant."
None of the children had ever been al
lowed to associate much with others, and
they were in consequence very in noccnt
and childlike in many ways still. They
hid no near neighbors, and Lady Yerrler
had never taken them up to London. She
did not take Lord Verrier either when
Bhe could help it, but that was some

.Ada turned her little face toward her
sister. Xo one who looked at her would
have been surprised at her mother's
prophecy. Lone curly lashes shaded her
dark eyes, deep and mysterious with the
Inherited shadowy look of generations of
fair women, who had lived and lovd and
suffered long years before she was born,
and had set their seal upon their de
scendant. Her long, neck moved with un

"We shall forget," said- Gerald, the
practical. "Five years is a long time."
"No, wo won't forget," answered Ger

cheeks, and flushed them with a tender
rose. She pulled down a branch of honey
suckle from the roof and "tenderly de

another flower when "the time comes, &d

"But where will you be?" said - Ada,
wonderingly. "You will be out, too,
Gerty. and going about. Y'ou will not

Gertrude shook her head, and her eyes
sought to glowing sky,' that was begin
ning to pale into twilight That would
not be her life. .She knew .it with the
certainty of conviction. "Les avertis"

The shrill voice cut tho evening air.
Mademoiselle could be heard exclaiming
and wondering and appealing, apparently
to the frightened rabbits, and one be
lated bird, who was complaining from a
neighboring bush, as she approached their
hiding place. They had no. mind to be
. scovered, and she hated damp grass,
so they mot with mutual satisfaction at
the edge of the wood, and proceeded
homeward as quietly as mademoiselle's
excitable nature would permit
, Meantime -Lady Verrier was pursuing
her usual round of life at Ilomburg. She
was a perspn of little or no.-imagination,
so she always did the same things at the
same time of year, and this was her sea
son for taking the waters, and for giving
herself leisure for observing the symp
toms of a mysterious nerve complaint
which she kept as a resource for mo
ments When other occupations failed her.
Lady Verrier was well, certainly over
forty but she had not given up the
amusements of youth. There had been a
cotillion at the gursaal the night before,.
iind sho had pleasant remembrances of
the many tinsel flowers, paper flags, and
pretty toys which had fallen to her
share from various admirers. Yet sho
was not quite nappy, -tono naa aiwajs
been a popular woman, but she had
come' to that difficult moment when the
popularity of youth, if it is to continue.
must emerge into something different.
under penalty of looking ridiculous. She
had a glimmering of this, for she was
not quite a fool. When - a woman Is
quite young, it docs not 'matter to the
outside world what she is or what she
says, but how she looks land how she
says it Only, as she gets older, the
froth of appearances becomes ridiculous
unless there is something solid under
neath it. Even the most frivolous feel
this more and more clearly as time goes
on. Jiut tnere is no ncip . .-vim uwj
: stillo tho temporary misgiving by an
extra dofe of frivolity.
Lady Verrier was, as always, exquisite
ly dressed. Sho had been very beautiful,
and, even now, 'with her pamsol at tho
right angle, and a becoming veil, she
looked hardly older than she had done
twenty years before.
Xot that it would hayc mattered. Her
favorite partner of the night before was
sitting beside her. He was young. Her
favorite partners wore usually young-1
men now. He had been told that Lady
Verrier was beautiful, and a person to
be seen with. He took her on trust, and
unless some malicious person pointed out
to him that her charms were on the' wane
it was almost certain that he would never
notice it for himself.
The little tables 011 the terrace began
to 1111 up for tea. time. German officers,
in their becoming blue uniforms, were
making the most of the scanty knowl
edge of the English language, and Eng
lish girls, knowing no German, were smil
ing back nt them in the universal lan
guage of tho young. Solid fathers of
English families, wo had been doing the
cure, gave their sofe hats a knowing
cock, and brightened up in a way which
would have seemed impossible at home.
And over all was the brightness, the ir
responsibility, the general air of taking
life less seriously, which makes a for
eign town so attractive, and hides the
-rim EtniiTirio with poverty, fiercer sun
than at home, which is goiog on
all tho while. ,
"You are going away tomorrow
Capt Perrison, throwing a little air of
sentiment into his eyes, whfch somehow
seemed appropriate to his Homburghat.
and the general surroundings of the
Lady Verrier sighed softly. "Alas!
yes," she said. "Somehow It always
happens;. when one is almost happy, it is
time to move on."
"Why move on?" said the man at her
side, still more gently. "Surely there can
be no necessity. And think how we
somoof is especially will m'ss y.ou."
T Verrier smiled uo at him. She
could not explnin the real reason of her J
departure which was that her husband
insisted 'tm her personally -supervising j
Gerald'sJJirst departure, tojgchool. Xow, j
It is an honorable thing to have a fine 1
son of fourteen, but, somehow, to ex- j
plain to an admirer, who Lady Verrier
knew was twenty years young ther her- j
pelf, that seemed somehow to piepare .
him for Eton seemca soraenon w '- j
tract from tho romance of thot situation.
and even to make it somewhat ridiculous.
Therefore, she only smiled, and looked
pathetic, unutterable things.
Luckily at this moment Capt Pcrri
son s attention was diverted by a pas
serby." I played bridge with tha-t man last
nisht," he said, with the air of one who
recounts a tragedy. "Hc"dclard hearts
on five and a weak hand. I lost- 20."
"Oh, he can do worse than that" re
plied Lady Verrier. with a laush . "I
played tvith him the night before. He
doubled diamonds on four! What can
happen to a man who lehaves like that?"
"Without doubt he shall pcria.1 ever-
