only think ho should lake n funny to
you, nnd, Matilda, though I oujjht not
to say it, you nvo very pretty just the
very picture of what 1 wai nt your heo;
n I was saying, 1 don't think it at all
improbable, til lenrt impossible, that you
should attract hii attention, nnd think
what a fine thing it would bo if you
should b como a countess."
Mrs. Jenkins paused to tako broatn
after this long and rather loosely jointed
speech to ecu what effect it would have
upon her dnuriitcr. Tho latter Beehioi!
quite as much affected ivu.ho could wish.
She wat like iter mother, not only in
f oiin, but in mind, and her mother'?
woids bad Btirrod her ambition.
"La, how fiuo that would bo!" sho ox
claimed. "I suets Ellen Hawkins would
not thow her uirs any more. Tho mean
cieatuio, I wouldn't tako any notice of
her, except just to invito Her to tho wed
ding, bo that i-lio might havo n chancoto
'envy my good luck."
"Very true,'" enid her mother approv
ingly, "but yon know n good deal must

You must endeavor In look your pret

"No, mamma; that dooan't become
mo. I Bhall wear my plum Colored silk,
and you must lend me your gold chain."
"But," said Mrs. Jenkins reluctantly,
"I was going to wear that myself." '
"I don't see," said her daughter, toss
ing her head, "that it is of much conso
quenco how you look. I presume you
don't espect .tho young lord will inarry
you. But it is very important how 1
look. If I can't go looking decant 1
won't go at all. Of course all tho ladies
in England havo gold and jewols to

"Perhaps you ought, Matilda," aid
her mother. "Iain sure it is my sole
aim in lifo to promote your success, and
if I could only live to seo you tho wife
of an earl I should dio in peaco."
Notwithstanding the apparent disin
terestedness of this remark it is proba
ble that unless Mrs. Jenkins expected to
Bharo in the prosperity of her daughter
she would havo cared considerably less
for her alliance with the nobility.
That was a busy day for Mrs. Jenkins
and her daughter. It took them up to
tho veiy moment of their departure to
arrange their toilot. At length, resplend
ent with tho best their wardrobes could
turnisb, they went over to the hotel. It
may bo reui.aiied, by the way, that Mrs.
Jenkins, with tho cunning natural to
such an admirable manager, had not
whispered a word of her ulterior designs
to the landlady. Shs oven cautioned
her daughter not to address the noble
man by his title in the hearing of any
Six o'clock found thorn seated at the
hotel table. It so chanced that Earl
Spencer was tho only guost (the reader
must remember that it was a small conn
try inn), and accordingly Mrs. Jenkins
and her daughter had 'the distinguished
stranger quite to themselves. It suited
Mrs. Jenkins to appear quite ignorant of
tho earl's station even nf his national
ity, unless ho should himself reveal it.
It would have been somewhat difficult
to decido whosein lay the marks of high
birth which Mrs. Jenkins professed to
find in the stranger. Ho looked much
moro like a third rate clerk. Ho wore a
flash waistcoat, an extensive cravat and
a gorgeous watch chain which might
have been gold, but looked moro like tho
showy articles winch remind ono of the
old proverb that "all is not gold that
But Mrs. JenkinB was not a woman of
great discernment. She saw nothing but
what might bo expected of an oarl, and
murmured in tho ear of Matilda that his
appearance was very distingue by tho
way, sho pronounced the word in a way
of her own.
Matilda nodded assent to her mother's
remark, and began to play off her airs
and graces upon the distinguished gen
tleman. Her delight was great to find
that ebo was creating nn impression.
The earl listened to her very attentively,
and ovon condescended to exchango a
v little "playful badinage.
"I should judge," said Mrs. Jenkins at
.. length, "that you were not .an Ameri

which makes mo think you an English

"A few months," thought she. "Then

Wheu thoy were ready to depart tho
managing lody tnrnod to tho English
man nnd eaid:
"I should bo vory happy indeed to bcs

ing, Jf you havo no other engagement. I
have always had n vory high Idea of the
English, und am glad to havo an oppor

"Thank you, iim'niu," tho carl replied
with alacrity, "I will certainly call,

Tho leader will easily Imngino thnt his

lady, who was quite enraptnrod by tho
conquest which sho had achieved over
tho heart of an earl. Nor was hor mo
ther leia gratified. Tho good lady held
her head higher than ev .-, and speedily
anticipated tho time when, as mother-ln-lnw
of an oarl, she would tako pre

to look down upon hor.

I could find Bomowhere n book of tho
British peerage; then I could find out
-without any trouble." She thought of
going to tho bookseller ana asking lnm
to sond for tho book, but on second
thought decided that it would bo most
prudent not to run any such risk of re
vealing her aspirations, ovon if sho were
obliged to remain in ignorance a little
Ono point, however, puzzled her a
little. Notwithstanding tho very in
timate terms of tho earl with her family
ho never ventured any allusion to bis
rauk or his English estates or tho amount
of his income, which Mrs. Jenkins
would havo been very glad to learn.
"But I bupposc, Matilda," sho re
marked to her daughter, "that he is de
termined to remain incog, so as to make
suro that you marry him for himself
alone. I have rend of such cases in Bto

At last ono memoroblo day she burst
into her mother's room with a triumph
ant glow on her face.
"Haa ho proposed?" exclaimed Mrs.
Jenkins in great agitation.
"Yes, mother," was tho reply of tho
overjoyed Matilda. "Ho told mo that

"I congratulate you, countess that is

"Not a word, mother."
"I am not nt nil surprised. Bo suro

"Wei" repeated Matilda. "Surely you

"At my timo of life!" Baid Mrs. Jen

"Then fix it as soon as possiblo. You

ceremony took place in Mrs. Jenkins'
cottage. Scarcely was it over than that
worthy lady, no longer able to restrain
