"I atu too old to indu ?ge io the luxury
of rhapsodies," he said with a laugh,
"but I'll tell you this, Theo, I am very
foud of the girl, and very well satisfied
that you'll approve of my choice ".
The speakers were Theodore Bligh
and bis uncle, the elder Mr. Bligh.
The subject of the talk wis a young
girl, to whoo, the uncle was engaged,
and to whom the nephew was a stranger:
Madge Dundee, or Bonnie Dandee, ts
she was called.
"Well, uncles don't generally submit
their choice io such matters to their
nephews'judgments," Theo Bligh said,
recovering his normal expression of
benignant indifference as he spoke, and
theo be added : "I hope with all my
heart that you'll be happy.
"Yon will meet her to-night at
dinner," Mr. Bligh said to Theo -
"She is coming with her crothers and
some friends of theirs to see her future
Be did meet her that evening.
"I think Mr. Bligh has been rather
nervous about introducing me to you,"
Miss Dundee said, quickly u akiog way
fur Theo to take a seat on the sofa by
her side, "he's more than half afraid
that you won't like me, and il you don't
it will make him very unhappj." So
she spoke, in a girlish, almost childish' ?
ou'spokeo way, without seemiog to coa
sider orto mark the effect of her words
either on the man she addressed or on
the bystanders. "I should nave known
you as Theo anywhere I'd seen you," 1
she went on ; "you'll be exactly like
iJr. Bligh when you're-" She paused
bruptly and colored a little, but a mo?
ment after she forced herself back into
composure, and resumed, "when you're
as old as he is, I wa* going to say. but
I remembered that young men hate to
be reminded of their youth, sid so I
bungled and blundered. Can you forgive i
i\ he forgive her! Was the
Bunni?. Dundee subtle, or only sweet 1
simple , that she asked him this, in j
that winning voice of hers? And, ty i
the way, how did she, with her Scotch
name, come with that touch of accent
that way of softly resting on the vowels
that is a specialty ot Irish women's ;
pronunciation of words that they want j i
to caress ? As be asked himself this, I
he looked at her more observantly, and
wondered also how she had come by ?
that face and that expression.
In a remarkably short time the two ,
became the most devoted friends. I
Bonnie Dundee was not a mere
insatiable coquette. She was not a .
heartless fool, ready and willing to play i
fast and loose for th?wkc of gaining a I
little notoriety ; but she was that even i
more dangerous thiog, a woman afflicted <
with such a passion for pleasing that it i
became a fine art in her hands, and I
when she was following it she could not ,
stay to count the cost of failings or sue- i
cess. It was a new sensation to her to i
have the right to such attentions, and I
admiration and love as Mr. Bligh i
lavished upon her, and as Theo offered <
at a respectful distance, on the score of
being his uocle's nephew. It was a j
new sensation to ber, and she enjoyed ,
it to the fall ; reveliug in it as ooe docs I
io saobeaws aft' r a oog frost, or io i
dainty viands after a loog fast. The j
idea of ?tc being wrong or reprehensible i
in any way to gather :he*e roses of love t
and youth and pleasure, that were i
blooming io ber path, never entered her i
mind. She was not false or fickle io
reality, she was only intensely fond of !
thc excitement of be ng put upon a <
pedestal, and being only worshiped ic i
the sight of aU meo. i
There came a day wheo it was re i
vealed to her suddenly, so soddenly i
that it made her dizzy, aod theo she
behaved-like a woman.
One morning, uncle, nephew, aod
Miss Dundee met.
"Theo has been talking this? morning
of leaving us sooo ; before he goes, dear,
we must let him know what day he is to
come back and hail rou as an aunt."
It cost Mr. Bligh more than a slight
effort to make this speech with appareot ;
ease, for during the last few days he
had not been blind of sight. Bot he
succeeded io doiog sc, aod only he him?
self suspected :bo pain bis owo words
"Going! Theo going!" exclaimed
Miss Dundee, lapsing from fuo ioto
surprised solemnity io a moment, and
laying ber whip with a frank caressing
gesture on Theo's arm as she spoke -
"Oh, don't think of going, Theo; I
can't spare yon-we can't spare him,
can we ?"
The men's eyes met for a moment as
Madge spoke, aod in that moment each
read that the other koew all about
''He koows I love her," poor Theo
moaned io his heart, and "lie sees I
know it," Mr. Bligh thought, with oot
ooe whit less pain. And a silrnee fell
on t hem, and io that silence Madge saw
things clearly at last.
To recognise the love of ooe mao io
the presence of soother mao who bas a
right to feel jealous of it, is to be ia a
pos'ti on of the greatest daoger aod
delicacy aod difficulty. Poor Madge
flimhed for the first moment wheo she
found herself io it, bot the next instant
she recovered herself, aod, with the
generosity of a woman, sought to pot
them well with ooe another without:
regard to herself.
' It was selfish of me to nay I wouldn't
.pare yoo, for it most be doll for jon
bete ; bot tb? fact is, Theo has s JODI it
ne, jost as say brothers do, sod I nave
f:llen ?ot? the wsj of ordering hiss
shoot as I do them, forgetting he isn't a
?t was terribly trying work for them
?H, weighted wita tao discoveries they i
had recently mad? about each other.
It became iosopportabie to Hr. Bligh I
after a short time, and so he sauuten
out ?ato the garden, and Theo an
Madge were alone.
Her spirit rose with her sense
danger, as does that of dil finely organ
zed natures, aod she turned to hi
bright and brave at once, though he hi
grown to be very dear to ber, at
though she koew that he was sufferin
horribly on her account. "It seems I
me," she said, "that we're all very wea
and wrong to let a shadow settle ove
the last visit you'll have with us, ant
I am an old mirried woman, with hous<
hold cares on my shoulders, that wi
crush down my love of visits."
"This will be my last visit with yo
"Theo !" cte threw such a world c
reproachful tenderness into thc tone ii
which she uttered that one word, tha
the man she addressed trembled visibly
His resolve, ivhen spoken coldly an<
harshly, shocked and surprised her ou
of the brightly prudential tone she ba?
fu ly intended to adopt. Why bad Mr
Bligh gone away, leaving them the prej
of this mischievous opportunity ?
"Yes ; for Heaven's sake, don't speal
to me iu that way, or you'll drive mt
mad !" and then he got op and went tc
the window; and poor Madge saw thal
hrs face had grown very pale, and thal
an expression ol'hopelessness had settled
upon it. She could not bear it. He
bad been so thoughtful for her always
so gentle, aid devoted, and sympathetic
-tbat she felt as if she must comfort
him, let what ?ni?ht come ot it.
"Theo," she said again, with that
same pathetic cadence in her voiee,
"you have beet: so kind to me always;
1 can't bear to see you so. Can't I make
you liappi'-r, Theo?"
He turned rt und quickly and caught
her hands, as sile was stauding near to
"Madge, do you love roy uncle?"
Hall frightened, she drew back from
him, and "I au engaged to him," she
"Yt-s, but you have made me love
you ; you knew your chance, aod you
have used it. If you love him, let me
?o without another of those appeals
that y<>u know how to make so madden?
ing; if not-Midge, Madge ?"
He had taken her hands again, and
was looking down into her face with a
gleatn oi such intense pleading affection
that for a moment he was the world to
"If I had known you first," she
lobbed, "but I didn't, you see; and we
Dundees never break our word. And
>h ! you had better go after all ; but
Forgive me !"
Forgive her. It was easy enough to
say he would, and to make an end of
this miserable seene, but it was very
bard to do it. Had she not spoken his
name with all Ker heart iu her voice
j rt ly a tu i o ute ago, leading him on by
he tone she o?ed to tell his secret to
lier in thc hope: that ?he would be brave,
md avert eveniful misety fron them
ill? An I now she was telling him that
if she had known him first she would
lave loved bim best, and (hat she could
iot for her name's sake break her word
Lo his uncie !
It was a ghastly state of affairs, t od as
soon as he could, Theo 3ligh ma je an
end of it, by going away. The two men
had no verbal explanation on leave*
Laking, but they parted as comrades who
had been wounded in the same fight
might part. And then Theo found
that, though existence was not embit?
tered to him, toe savor had gone from
the old pleasures.
It was decidedly not worth while now,
lie felt, to try nod do anything good or
definite ; for be could never find a woman
to share his gk ry or smile upon his
lacee**, who could put Bonnie Dundee
Dot of his minti ; after her other womeo
did and would always appear to be
wanting in something. She had the
trick of makin:' others appear tame, and
pale, and insufficient, and well, the man
who has been shown apon by a star,
never feels tha: there is much warrnu
io a taper.
He banished himself so effectually
that he heard no tidings from the Chase
for six months, and then he ven'.ured to
send his addref ? to bis banker, and to
have letters forwarded to him ; but before
these letters ire read, a retrospective
glance at the Bonnie Dundee must be
She bore his departure very bravely.
Remember how many other interests
were claiming her attention at the time,
and remember the ardent, impression?
able, changeable nature of the girl.
There was a good deal of the woman.
She had the faculty of feeling intensely
for the time, and of getting over things.
Is not that last characteristic the secret
of many women keeping right, and of
many others going wrong? ,
It brash ed the bloom of the peach
roughly when he went away, for that
veiled idolatry ol his had been very
pleasant to her ; nevertheless she bore
it bravely, and made the best of that
which remained to her. "I am so sor?
ry, for I was an food of bim," she said
to her lover, with that disarming frank?
ness which women of ber calibre koow
so well how to ose. And Mr. Bligh
hearing ber, did not wonder that his
nephew bad been scorched by the fiery
ordeal through which be had been pas?
There wu : lis about it, too, that it
was such clemo fire that even her own
sex could not despise and condemn and
prophecy evil things concerning Miss
Dundee7s wareuta. Jost as she loved
light, and dancing, and flowers, and
sweet sounds, w didI soe lova to be
loved ; aad though it made bar danger?
ous, it never atad* bar desptoable. Aad

sudden passion that carried her out t

"He is the younger man-and-yo

but it was an awful blow ; and again, a

ind a full account "Come back ?nd
rin what I have !ost, and as I love you

laughter." That was something like
.0 invitation from a defeated to a snc
: ess ful lover !
Once more fate was against things
ighting themselves in the clear and
rood way that was made so open. Theo
ia. by this time taken a situation in a
oercantile house in Ne? York-a situa
ion of trust, which he could cot hastily

At last he was free-free to go home

"And now you know what my next
move will be," he said, wheo the greet

gladness as much as be could, out of
respect for the sorrow by which bia
jncle had bought it. "What is the
matter?" be added io alarm, seeing a
change in the kind cordial face that wes
Dent 00 him. "You koow I have come
to ask her to be my wife."
"I have borne an awful grief and disap
pointment, but I'd bear it again rather
than have to tell this to yon, my boy.
You have stayed too long."
"Good heaven ? is she dead ?"
"Not dead, but as lost to you as if

she must never hear you bave come, or
she will be true to herself, pityful and
