The simple meaning of this line is that

indicated. The few people hereabouts

are not all aware that the name ot tiieir

found under the coat-of-aruis of the carl

The ear'V ancient motto is ''Tout birn

Into Kugli-h, may be translated. "All

application to cue living member of the
family which probably was nevcrdreanied
of in anv previous generation of its exis

of Ladv lllaiichc's father, when she de
camped from Kxtou hall, where she was
born, to marry Mr. Murphy, and so she
has since been to him as "nothing."
This marriage or misalliance ol the el

to her father in his Mil year. It oc
curred under chcunistances whicli added
"rli'l to humiliation. The earl, who was
a Uomam Catholic, has a private chapel
at Kxton hall. In which divine worship
celebrated dally, and some seven year

named Murpliv as organist. As a mem

the watchful eyes of Lady Hlaneho'.s

So matters went along lor the greater
part of a year. At last, upon a time, onu

that biich a question should be asked
about his daughter' i musical practice;
and when the observant relative was
niinnt to iro a stcn farther hi his inmitrics.
the earl forstalled his hint by laughing
at the thought ot such an Idea.
It was, however, on the very night af
ter this suggestive Inquiry that Lady
