'After all, Lucy, it is not sur.h a very
difficult journey. It is only n ininilred
niiles or so, and there is no nhange; And
if you only sit still and take care not to
pet your fingers jammed in the doorway
I really cannot see what harm can happen
"Hush, Auntie! Do, please; I am not
quite a baby!" And as Rhe said this, the
speaker, a pitstty, shy-looking girl of 18,
glanced anxiously at an old gentleman
who was sitting in- the far corner of the
carriage, to see if he had heard her aunt's
counsels and' fears, and if he thought
them two silly women not fit to travel, and
not very well able to take care of them
selves. The old gentleman had his 2 irocs,
his Saturday Review, and Spectator on his
knee and looked placidly benignant. It
was doubtful if he had heard Aunt Es
ther's hints if he had, they did not ap
pear to stir any emotions of contempt.
Lucy turned back to the window and
Aunt Esther, who was now gazing earn
estly and anxiously in her face.
"Dear child," said she, "I am feel
ing very uncomfortable, I do so wish I
had just left everything and gone with
you. I shall not know a happy moment
till I hear the train has got safely to Litch
field. And, Lucy, have you gotthe stamp
ed envelope I gave you ? the one I ad
dressed for you, you know ?" recommenc
ed Aunt Esther, and then she sighed her
relief as Lucy produced it. "Ah, yes, yon
have it j but Lucy, darling here give a
porter this shilling to put the envelope in
the post for yon. There is sure to be a
letter-box in the station, but mind you
watch him do it; stand and watch hiin,
dear, and see the letter drop in."
. "Yes, yes. Aunt," whispered Lucy. "But
how can you be so anxious ? Everyone
will think "
"I am anxious, I can't help it; and, Lu
cy, you promise mo faithfully you will
write every "
"The train is going," cried Lucy. "Oh,
-do take care! Good-bye! Yes, I will
write." And in a minute more it started,
and all that Aunt Esther could do was to
stand and look after the great iron mon
ster as it shrieked and tore away with her
Lucy looked down, and for -some time
she thought of no one but "poor, dear
Aunt Esther;" then she enjoyed the pros
pect of the happy days and weeks which
lay before her; and then, before settling
down to her railway novel, she glanced at
her companion, but to her horror and
amazement his eyes were fixed on her
face and they were full of kindness and
interest. Lucy blushed. She felt as if
she had teen detected in trying to espy
pome secret of his. He did not turn away
he looked encouraging.
"You have not made many journeys
alone, lady?" said he.
"No, not even one until to-day."
"If I can be of any service to you, you
must command me," he continued. Lucy
looked at his white hair, and thought it
Would not be quite fair if she in her bright
youth were to impose many tasks on his
seventy and odd years.
"I am even older than you perhaps
think," said he, "but still I am not too old
to do anything you may ask me." .
"But how do you know what 1 was
thinking V inquired Lucy, very simply.
"You were thinking 'poor, old man, he
is seventy, at least ;' but, lady, I am seventy-eight;
and the reason that I know
what you are thinking is because you are
the kind of person whose thov-rhts I do
understand a little I mean better than
1 mkleratana th tnougbU ot mart people."
Lacy drew back. She thought thia M
an odd way to talk, and that it waa sot
very nic to be abut up in a railway
carriage fuf TOOT than a hundred mile
with a pema who talked in a odd way.
"No, lady," (aid he, "do not think amiss
of what I may. I will explain. When I
waa young I nw a great deal of I mean
I waa very intimate with a young lady
of your age, and you are much more like
her than anyone I have met during my
whole long life."
Lucy was interested, much interested,
but had the uncomfortable feeling that it
was wrong to be an that this old gentle
man was "very strange and rude, and
talked in a way that no one who waa not
an old, old friend, or a relation ought to
talk, and that if Aunt Esther did but
know? but here she was interrupted.
"You are wrong agnin," said be. "I
speak in a way you perhaps think strange
but it is only because I talk frankly and
naturally. I do not mean to shock or an
"Oh, no," liegan Lucy.
"Would you like to see the SpcrtntorT'
asked the stranger, and Lucy felt herself
put in her place as a good little girl who
was not quite grown up enough to lie en
titled to talk for any length of time to
gentlemen, especially to very old ones,
but who was not on that account to be
cut ofT from all the tender charities of
life. So she took her Xjtectator meekly,
and turned its pages one by one, and tried
to make herself think she liked the polit
ical articles, and was interested in the
middles, and did not dislike the reviews;
but lieing at that time not very fond of
reading, she had but poor success. After
aliout an hour, and not till then, she again
looked u i, and again saw the old gentle
man's eyes Rcanuing her face with an ex
pression of intense but most melancholy
pleasure. "I lieg your pardon," said he,
"I do, indeed, but I cannot help it ; you
really are so like her."
"Like whom J" said Lucy, rather impa
tiently. "Like the young lady we were speak
ing of just now," said he, as if that were
"But who was she!" inquired Lucy with
increased, but on the whole well-concealed
"I was engaged to her," he replied.
Lucy was silent. She did not like to
say, "Then why in the name of all that is
sensible did yon not marry her and leave
me in peace?" but that was what she
thought. He was quite silent, and as this
silence lasted, she looked interrogatively
into his face (he was now opposite). "She
died," ho said, and Lucy felt miserable.
"I do so beg your pardon," she stam
mered. "No, no; it is altogether my fault, or
would be if there were any fault. It does
nof hurt me to talk about her. I like it.
It does me good now, I mean. Twenty
years ago I did not much like to speak
of her j forty years ago I could not have
lone it for the world ; but I can talk well
enough now. Why, consider, it won't lie
long before I see her."
Lucy wondered if he were mad. She
va8u afraid he was almost sure that he
waa ' ' .
"No, lady," said he, "I am not mad
don't start, or be vexed. It is because
you.are so like her so truly like her, that
I know what you are thinking other peo
"pTe fnay think what they like, or do what
they like, it niakes no difference to me. I
know anil care nothing aliout it; but old
as 1 am, I know your thoughts you are
of her sort."
'"I do so wish I were not," was Lucy's
first thought, for lie oppressed her; then
she was ashamed of herself. "It must
have been a great grief," said she, and
then she despised herself for her com
monplace and inadequate sympathy.
"A grief! l es, of course it was a grief,
lut it happened fifty years ago."
"Fifty years ago! Lucy sighed. Fifty
rears hence where would she be ? Now
she was whirling away to pay a pleasant
visit, and her life had known no sorrow.
AVhen she looked backwards her thoughts
dwelt on happy, tranquil days, unclouded
by any shadow when she looked forward
there was a prospect of happiness with
out end, for she was going to her sister's
at Hazlewood, near Litchfield, and when
there she would have two balls, and some
picnics and archery meetings, and best of
all, she would often see Robert Mcrivalc,
and she sometimes ventured to think that
Robert Mori vale cared very much to see
her. While enjoying these anticipations,
she remembered the old gentleman oppo
site and his lost love of fifty years ago.and
that there was much pain and misery in
this world of ours what if some of it
came to her? She felt very sorry for him
and said kindly, "Will you tell me some
thing about her?" Whereupon he told
her in perfectly simple words the story of
his love and loss.
As he snoke she liked him more and
more, and before he had finished she
found herself wishing she was his laugh
ter, or anyone who might have the privi
lege of comforting him. She was very si
lent, very quiet, but two or three big
tears rolled down her face. Ho made no
apparent demand on her sympathy ; he
told his story quietly, but he knew that
she felt for him. "So," said he, "all that
was left for me to do, was to go patiently
through life, trying to make some other
lives happier than mine had been. I
spend most of my time in Cumlierhmd I
like being there." Then he described his
homo there, until Lucy felt as if she had
never seen such scenery before ; and then,
and by this time they were quite good
friends, he said, "Now tell me something
"I seem to have so little to tell," said
Lucy, "I live with the aunt you saw.
We live at Highgatc. I have neither fa
ther nor mother, nor anyone but aunt Es
ther and one sister. My father and my
mother died in India when we were ba
bies and aunt Esther brought us up. Let
tice married three years ago. She is very
nice; not exactly as you would expect
though, for she says such very odd things,
just when you think she is looking on ev
erything just as you do."
"What kind of things, lady J I like to
have everything explained."
"I hardly know worldly things, or
worldly-wise things she has what she
calls tact, too; but she is older than I am,
and knows all about what the world or so
ciety, or whatever it is which makes itself
bo disagreeable sometimes, expects you to
do on all occasions. I like her husband
immensely." . .
And does he know all about the
world r asked the old gentleman, smiling.
"1 darveay he does, but he does not go
on about it an, and he is always trying
to be kind to everyone. He knows I am
dull at home, so he has been planning all
kinds of pleasures for me."
"Hut are you dull at hornet" he asked,
for this was the very first sign of dissatis
faction with the world as it waa that Miss
Lucy had shown.
"I dull! Certainly not! Lettice and
her husband are always telling me I
must In dull, and when I stay with them
and find dances and picnics and garden
artics going on every day, I Iiegin to
think myself I must have bad a very dull
life at home, but when I go liock I have
no time to think of such a thing."
"But what do you dof"
"I draw and paint and garden for we
have a great big garden, three times the
size of our drawing-room and I practice
and work, and we have books from Mu
die's I can't tell you what I do, but I am
"And you have no anxieties, no disap
pouitments?" "I was very anxious a week or two since
when we lost our dog, but it came home
three days afterward with a bit of rope
tied round itsneck; that is the only anx
iety I ever had; but I have plenty of dis
appointments, for nearly everything I
plan! in the garden dies!"
Lucy was becoming more and niore con
Sciential, when all at once she caught sight
cf a large country house about a mile
from the railway, with trees behind it,
and gardens and shmblieries in front, and
on this she fixed her gaze so earnestly that
Bhe entirely forgot to finish one of her
"We are vei-y near Litchfield now." said
she. when this place was out of siirht, "for
that house is only six miles off."
The old gentleman had been watching
her eager little face all the while with an
amused smile. "Whose property is that ?"
Simple Miss Lucy looked up quite sur
prised that he had noticed her interest in
it and said "Sir Richard Morivale s.
"And he is one of your 'best' partners.
then, is he?"
'Sir Richard Merivale! Why he is old
and gouty and the Grossest man in the
"Then bis son or his ir'phew is?"
Lucy blushed this old man was too
clever by half! "But," he continued, "if
we are so near Litchfield I am afraid I
shall soon lose the pleasure of air com
pany. How long did you say you were
going to stay here?"
"Exactly three months in just three
months from this very day, I ain, if all
goes well ; to return homo to Aunt Es
ther." "This is the loth of June."
"Yes, and I am to go back on the 15th
of Septemlier. The time is fixed so ex
actly, because Katie Williams a friend of
mine is to lie married on the 17th, and I
am to be one of the bridesmaids."
"The 13th of September" repeated the
old gentleman. "Well, it is quite possible
that I may be returning from Cumberland
about that very time if so, I'll remem
ber the day and come then. Wej should
no doubt travel by the same train. What
time do you start?" :, 1 ,
"At three o'clock in the afternoon, . gen
erally." . j
"Keep to your day, lady.- I'll remember
it, and if your sister is with you it will be
so much the better. I should like to see
"She is almost certain o lie witl me
she and Katie are great friends." K -
The old gentleman took out his note
book and wrote "September 15." Then he
said "My name is Hugh Konrick; I have
the disadvantage of having two homes,
one in London, which I have just left, and
the other at Calderwater. That's where I
am going go where I will, though, I am
Lucy looked up she did not like to say
it, but she was thinking, "It is odd that
you should be so much alone when you
are so very free about making acquaint
ances." "No, he said, "I am always alone. If I
have spoken to you I do not speak to ev
eryone. I've told you why I was drawn
to you. Now, while I have my pencil
ready, tell me your name I have told
"My name is Lucy Ilderton."
"Daughter of "
"Daughter of Major-General Lewis Il
derton, who died when I was a baby oh,
I told you that before."
And you live "
"At No. G Beatrice Villas, Highgatc,
with my aunt, Miss Esther Moore."
All that went down in the note-book.
"Well, said he, if we do not travel home
together this day three months, perhaps I
may some day see you in London that is
if good Miss Esther Moore will permit it
but who knows what may Happen in
"Who, indeed?" thought Lucy; but her
wonders were sent in a brighter direction
They bade each other farewell. The
train stopped, a pretty young matron of
one-and-twenty clasped Lucy in a sister
ly embrace, and when, after a minute oi
so devoted to the joy of this meeting, Lu
cy remembered Mr. Kenrick, and said
"Oh, Lettice, I should so like to introduce
you to an old gentleman I have traveled
with from London."
Mrs. Lettice only said hurriedly "But
your luggage, Lucy ought ve-ndt td
think of that?"
"Indeed, yes," cried Lucy, and. with a
glance at that venerable white. headand
a smile of farewell, Bhe hastened to the

Gen, Ran m recently said that the fee
system of payment of the United States
marshals, District Attorneys, and Com
missioners was pernicious and detrimen
tal to the public service. A law had been
on the statue book for years, which crea
ted an army of men wh'ose interest it was
t) arrestjand prosecute menjagainst whom
any trivial charge of violation of the rev
enue, lafts could be alleged. Deputies
are appointed, and in many cases have
around thgra gangs of political dead-beats
who are professional informers and pro
fessional witnesses having no otner means
of support. The laws are neccessarily
so framed as to cover not only intentional
violation of law but those which are
purely the result of inadvertance and in
winch no loss results to tne uovernment.
Some of the cases which had come to the
notice of the Commissioners were out
rages of the gravest description. Casea,
he said, are on record where Marshals
have received in fees $5,000 during a sin
gle term of the Court, by causing the ar
rest of men who were brought before the
Court, the preliminary steps only for their
trial being taken. The arrested persons
were then allowed to pay their fines and
further proceedings were stopped. Out-
races of this character are, of course, less
common in the populous districts of- the
