taken aback as oven Lady Valworth can

mistake. These French Jewelries nre so

"No: I mn not deceived," says Lady
Valworth. Her tone ia thnt of one who is
sure of her argument. It is, indeed, so
strong, bo nnliko tho usually vacillating
Lady Valworth, that M?llcent is struck
by It. "It is my cross?the one belonging
to the diamond set Sir Thomas gave mo
on my marriage, thnt is hanging around
"But how could Nndine"
"If you doubt it," snld Lady Vnlworth,
with sudden vehemence, "let. mo have au
authority to prove that what I Bay Is
right. Call Sir Thomas. Ilo In over
there. Ask him." "Dear Lady Val?
worth, but yon know you would not like
to distress Miss Roche," puts in Gerald
Massarceue who lins been perforce a list?
ener to the tMselusurc and who now feels
be must take n prominent part in tho dis?
He is amply rewarded for bin interfer?
ence by cn eloquent look from Mtlllceul.
"True?true!" says Lndy Vnlworth
sighoig. "1 shall not speak to Sir
Thomas now but by and by I shnll call
his attention lo it. Cood heavens! Millt

"Not. now?not tintil to-morrow night
has gone over our heads!" entreats Milli
ccnt, eagerly, willing to spare Nndine 11
shock. "Why would you make unhappy
n guest in your house on the very eve of
Granit'? blrthnlght ball?"
This is the very argument of all others
to gain over Ludy Valworth to her way of
"Yes. All should go smoothly for
Grnnlt," says Granit's mother thought?
fully. "And Nndine?she?she may not
be to blame."
"May noi?" Milllccnt'seyea grow dark
with iudigliant reproach. "What can
you mean by such a speech as that)
Nndine I Do yon for one instant believe
that she bas-lmd any part in this utrangc
story of which you speak?"
"My dear child, I would not hurt you
in any way, as you well know?not even
lb rough another. And as for Nndine,
you can sec yourself how highly I esteem
"Highly indeed, when you can hint nt
ncnndal in connection with her."
"I have hinted at nothing. I confess
i nm horribly distressed nt seeing iny
own cross round another's neck. Bo you
blamo me for that?"
Iu her distress ut having broucht down
the anger of her son's flnnceo upon her
dead, and her agitation nt seeing again a
\ portion uf her lost diamonds, poor Lady
I Valworth Is reduced to the very verge of
"Be reasonable, Milliceut. At least,
grunt mo justice. I have said nothing to
Nadiue. Why should I, when I deem her
innocent? Yet the connecting link be?
tween mo nnd the robber of my diamonds
lies with her."
" I will not have her connected with this
affair in any. way," cries Millieent, holly,
tears in her eyes. "In seeking for your
I missing link, yon will inerlininuto her,
ami terrify her and innko her wretched.
And she has had nothing to do with it.
Bhe turns almost defiantly upon Massa
rcene, who up to this has been silent.
"Do you think she hits?"
"A thousand times no!" declares he
gently. "MIs3 Roche and deceit of any
kind seem to me as fur apart as the poles.
It stands to reason, too, that if sho had
known anything of (lie lost diamonds, she
would hardly have worn them here."
Ho is so earnest, so eager in his speech,
that Milliccnt, with her eyes full of tears,
j lays licr bund on his. Tills act repays
him for many things, and makes him
trebly Nadine's friend. And bis argu?
ment, too goes home to Lady Vnlworth,
so that two causes uro gained. If tho
latter had ever permitted herself lo bare
auy doubts, they now venish Into noth?
ingness, and only Nadine's pale, pure face
rises befora her. Ou ouch a face no guilt
"My dear, I meant nothing?nothing,
no for as Nadlno Is concerned!" sho cries
in tigltation; "but, of course. It hi only
natural that I should desire the return of
my diamonds?SlrThoraas' diamonds. If
Nadino can help mo to a solution of this

"Tho until lo whom r.he U engaged.

"You present him to mo in the light of

"A dupe, most probnhly. IIo may,
however, he of use to v.s In the discovery
of the missing stones."
"It will distress Nndine very much to
have her lover Accused of beiog un out?

"I do mil sco thitt," says Massnrrrnc,
quickly, who is its lionest as ho I; fulllllrd

"Impossible!" something In her lone

turns to l-ndy Valworth. "A guestr"' he
".^lHcent is Indiscreet," hesitates Lady
Valworth, casting a reproachful glmicont
"Not that; only a little angry," returns
Milliccnt, with a rather tremulous smile.
"And why should what you have told us
be hidden? Why. nfler all, are we lo
whisper of it in comevsf Wo almost con
ilcmt] her in so doing."
"Cor.demnI Who?" exclaims Duran
Instinct, love, what you will, has lad

"Nndino," replica Lady Valworth Ina
low tone, her eves lower.it.
"Who has dared''? He checks him?
self abruptly by an pitort Unit roitdcrs Ids
faco as while and cohl as marble. "Ytiu

Duran has already gone In quest of Nn
dine; and presently returns, hringlnjj
her to where Lady Valworth, Milliccnt,
and fiernld Mnssarccne ure standing.
The girl, flushed and lovely, forgetfu
for the moment of all her cruel future
and mindful only of the happy prescnl
that has given her Dliran, advances
toward I he anxious, expectant group
with smiling lips and wide, glud ?ycs.
Upon her neck the fatal cross i.i rising,
falling, glittering, as only the purest
diamonds can. Milliccnt, her raze fixed
upon them, feels her heart contract. If
not Lady Vnlworth'a crocs, It is unfortu?
nately horribly like It.
Home few words pass between her and
Nndine. The latter is too full "of the
hour's passionate joy to heed the grief
within her friend's eyes. ISut Duran
rends It. lately Valworth, after cue
swift glance ut the girl's neck, lets her

"A city clerk!?to buy that jewel!"
There is unbelief, keen and strong, In
Ludy Valwortb's low touo.
"How else could he have obtained it?
Who is this Haul Annerley? How should
ho have had access to your Jewel eune?"
Miss drey's tone is somewhat itnpa
"That is what I cannot say. I only

believe Is, that Nndine has had any Inter?

"As you havo said, time, will tell," re?
plies Lady Valworth, moodily.
Time, In so far as it brings them to tho

stricken him dumb. Tho lamps are shav?

klssable mouth, Hint would fain i.ny,
