As 1 found that the guests ut
. Rutland Hall enjoyed a certain
t n'odom in their choice of amuse?
ments, and ' the disposa, of their
time, I speedily availed myself of
this privilege. I selected' my <>wn
associates, andi entertained my?
self as pleased me best. Not find?
ing myself always welcomed in
the drawing-room, I contrived, by
a series of the most dexterous
artifices, to gain the free entree of
the nursery. In this nursery wore
growing up some five or six young?
er branches of the Rutland family.
After a certain hour in the day
done of the elders ever thought of
invading its remote precincts.
ive o'clock in the evening was
the children's tea hour, and the
pleasantest,. I thought, in the
twenty-four. Nurse was a st iii? 1
woman, who knew how to appre?
ciate a little present now and
again, and to keep her own counsel
on the subject. The children were
not pleasant children; they were
iinruly, mischievous little wretch?
es. They conceived a sort of
affection for me, because I some?
times brought to the nursery
sundry pinchases made during
solitary rides; picture-books, toys,
dolls, or sweetmeats procured l>y
means of Teecie Kay's guinea. ?
suggested as much to Teecie one
evening as she sat by, watching
the distribution, and she nodded
her head in sage satisfaction. She
thought tba! I economised my
substance 1 y well. It covered a
great many small extravagances,
that guinea did.
Whatever might be my position
at Rutland Hall, Teecie Kay's was
simply intolerable. A spirit less
brave must have been cowed and
broken by it; a nature less deli?
cate must have been blunted and
made coarser. The servants open?
ly neglected her, the children used
her as they pleased; wreaked theil
humors on her, sparing neithei
blow nor taunt in their passions
and demanding from her at al
times, whatever service it suitec
their capricious fancy to need
Nurse, 1 the only one who evei
showed a grain of consideratioi
for the orphan, would sometime)
shield her from their impish at
tacks, when she could do so wit!
safety to hersel f, but she was no
permitted to deal with those dar
lings in the only fashion whicl
would have been likely to bring
them to reason. As for the elden
of the house, Teecie Ray's mo
nientary presence, or the mere
mention of her name, was sufficien
to ruffle their peace of m ind. "AVI i a
is to be done with that girl?"
heard Mrs. Rutland remark ti
one of her daughters. "If sin
were not lame, one might set he
to earn her bread in some way
but, as it is----" A shrug o
the shoulders, and a certain vine
gar-like expression of countenance
which this lady knew how to as
sume, sufficiently developed th
idea thus imperfectly expressed.
And how did Teecie Ray mee
all this? She did not eomplaii
nor rebel, she did not sulk nor frei
Under that well-worn black troc
of hers she carried a little breast
plate of sober, determined endm
ance. When sorely tried, thor
was never any cowardly submissio:

neither was there ever in her man
ner or words either reproach o
remonstrance ; she simply endurec
Her large, patient eyes and mut<
wide mouth seemed to say, "Wha1

from many things; therefore, T ai
Thu second time I met my littl
benefactress was a day or two aft*:
our first interview in the drawing
room. I came upon her one aftei
noon by chance, limping down
hedge lane which lay to the bac
of the house, away beyond tl:
gardens, and the kitchen garden
and the pleasure grounds. Til
lane, I found, led to a large mei
dow, and beyond the meado
there was a wooded hill, and fi
down at tito distant side of tl
hill there was a river. This wi
Teecie Ray's favorite ramble, an
lier one ?.venue of escape from tl
torments of the nursery. I i rom*
diately began pouring forth a I
gion of perplexing troubles an
difficulties, to all of which she li
iened with perfect credulity, e:
pressing her sympathy as I wei
along by an .pressive nod of tl
head or a shrewd, swift, glanc
Then she gave me her wise litt
counsel when all was told, ar
wont lioine, J believe, pondering
on my east'.
As the days passed, and my re?
lations became more und more in?
volved in their winter gaieties, I
found .myself more and more.!
thrown upon my own resources
for amusement. Occasionally I
was included in an invitation, and
accepted it; but in general I pre?
ferred indulging my fancy for
?cccping aloof from those who were
little charmed with my company.
A system of the most unblushing
bribery had won for me a warm
welcome from the savage tribes in
thc: nursery. Many and many an
evening found me walking down
that hedged lane in the frosty
dusk, with Teecie Kay limping by
my side, and talking her grave,
simple little talk. 1 had always
some fresh puzzle to propose to
her, and she was always ready to
knit her smooth brows over its so
lution. Once she stopped short
and struck her little crutches on
"You ought to go away from
here and work," she cried. "O, if
A certain Sir Harry arrived at
Kutlaiid Hall; I will not trouble
myself to think of his second
name; it is not worth Yemembei*
ing. He was a wealthy bachelor
of high family, and his movements
were watched with interest by thc
lady of the house. This Sh* Harn
bael a fancy for smoking his cigai
in the hedged lane, and on more
than one occasion he encountered
my little benefactress limping 01
her solitary way, and stared at thc
pretty, fresh face un ch : her ole
black hat till it blushed'with un
comfortable: brilliance. Teeci<
chajiged her track like a huntec
hare, but Sir Harry scented lie
out, and annoyed her with his ful
some; compliments. The matte
roached Mrs. Rutland's ears, an<
she vented her chagrin on the de
fenceless little gh'l. I know no
what sorry accusations and rc
proaches she bestowed upon he
during a long private lecture; bu
that evening when, at the- children'
tea hour, I entered the nurser
door with a new bull in my han
for Jack, (the youngest and leas
objectionable of the band,) I sai

not a very grand one."
She gave one of her quaint, e

but who cared? Nurse vowe<
was a shame, and showed ni
kindness than usual to the ;
Boner; but I will not venture to
decide how much of this tender?
ness was owing to the odd crown
pieces which found their way from
my hands to hers-all out of the
guinea. And there was another
friend who sometimes expressed
au interest in Teecie Ray's exist?
ence This was that Lady Thornton
whose bounty had indirectly fur?
nished me with pocket-money dur?
ing my stay at Rutland Hall. The
favor of this old lady I had done
my best to win. She was a nice,
comfortable old lady, and I liked
her. It happened that she called
one day during Teecie Ray's im?
prisonment, to invite the Rutlands
and their visitors, great and small,
young and old, to a party to bc
given at her house, a few miles dis?
tant. I chanced to be alone in thc
drawing-room when she arrived,
andi seized the opportunity to tell
her the story of Teecie's crutches.
"A bad boy!" she said. "A bad.
malicious boy! She must get new
crutches before my party."
"Of course she must,"I said very
The old lady threw back I r
head, liaising her fat chin in a
peculiar sort of way, and looking at
me direct through her spectacles.
"Indeed!" she said. "Pray,
voling man, what particular in?
terest do you take in Teecie Ray?"
I smiled. "Oh, Teecie and I
are excellent friends, I said."
"Teecie and you!" she repeated.
"Pray, are you aware that Miss
Ray is eighteen years of age?"
"Is she indeed? I know noth?
ing about the ages of little girls."
"But Teecie is not a little girl,
Mr.-Guy Rutland. Teecie Ray is
a woman, I tell you!"
Teecie Ray a woman! I could
not help laughing. "What, my lit?
tle benefactress, my little mother!
I am afraid I scandalized Lady
Thornton on that occasion by my
utter scorn of her proposition.
Christina Rutland swept, into thc
room at this crisis, and relieved
me in my difficulty. But often
afterwards during that day, J
laughed when I thought of Lad}
Thornton's informai ion. Teecie
Ray a woman? Preposterous!
One morning, when it wanted
but a week of the party, a curious
event occurred. The heads of thc
house met in consultation on th?
matter in the library before break?
fast. An extraordinary thing hat
arrived from London at Rutlanc
Hall. The thing was a larg?
wooden case, directed to Tootie
Ray. On being eagerly opened
it was found to contain a pair o
crutches. And such a fine pair

Thunder-stricken were the elder
of the house. "Who could hav
done this thing?" was on ever
lip. Who, indeed? Who outsid
of Rutland Hall had ever heard o
Teecie Ray? These crutches wer
costly affairs. I knew the conclu

They pitched on Sis Harry as th
culprit. It was a thorn in their sid
and I rubbed my hands in glee.
Having considered the questio:
in their dismay, they decided thn
Teecie should be kept in ignoranc
of her mysterious present. It wa
not fit for her to use; it would fi
her mind with absurd ideas. An
so, in spite of the arrival of lu
beautiful new crutches, poor Teeci
still sat helpless in the nurser
The wooden case and its conten?
were hidden away, and no wor
was spoken of their existence.
I waited a few days to see if tl
elders would not relent, but to n
purpose. The bird still pined o
its perch. No kindly hand secme
likely to open the cage door an
let it fly. There sat Teecie, dr
after day, in her nursery chai
hemming aprons for Nurse, dari
ing the children's stockings, loo!
lng longingly out of the windon
and growing pale for want <
fresh air. Still never rebellm
never complaining. Meantime 1 !

the children were fiuT of raptu:

Christmas party. There was gre;
excitement in the nursery aboi
pretty new dressess, wonderf
fussing about ribbons, and muslin
and fripperies. Teecie alone s
silent in her shabby frock. B
and-by her hands were full, bowii
up sashes, sewing on tuckei
stitching rosettes on shoes. S]
was a nimble little work-woina
and they kept her busy. Seeii
how well a lap full of bright ri
bons became her, I thought it
pity she should not have a g;
dress as well as the rest.
Nobody said, "Teecie, -what will
you wear?" nor even, "Teecie, arr
not you invited too?" No ono
seemed to expect for a moment
that Teecie could wish to be merry
with the rest. How could sh?1 go,

It happened that I had an errand
to the nearest town. It was rather
late, when, on my return, I called
at the best millinery establishment
in the place and asked for a parcel.
Yes, the parcel was ready. A
large Hat box. "Would the gentle?
man like to see tho lady's pretty
dress!"' The box was opened,and
a cloud of some airy fabric shaken
out under my eyes. I cannot, of
course, describe it, but it was
something white, very pure and
transparent, with something else
of pink just blushing through it.
It was very tasteful, I pronounced,
trying to look wise. There was
only one fault:
"Dill it not seem rather long for
a little girl?" I asked, remember?
ing the figure it was to adorn,
with its short skirt just, coming to
the top of the boots, so well worn

dignity, "you said the young lady

I reached home. Two merry car?

from the door as I drove up. A
