HOW HE CAME TO THE KfcSCUE.
Among the letters which Lord Lyd-brook
found at the club on his return
from a six months1 yachting cruise was
one from his sister, La:ly Julia
containing tho startling news
that her daughter Eva had actually engaged
herself to the second coachman.
Lord Lydbrook very rarely allowed, anything
to disturb Iits equanimity;, but his
sister's letter caused him genuine uneasiness.
He knew that his niece Eva
was a willful, headstrong girl, with romantic
notions and a strong-minded
contempt for conventionalities. Considerable
sensation had been caused
last season by a young lady of good
iamily eloping with her father's groom,
and Lord Lydbrook did not wish a
niece of his to disgrace herself by a
similar escapade. He considered his
sister tho silliest woman of his acquaintance,
and as utterly devoid of tact and
discretion as she was amiable, weak and
indolent. He trembled to think of the
risk of leaving his niece under the sole
control of her mother in such an emergency,
and mindful of the promise he
made to his bosom friend, John
on his death-bed, to befriend his
children when lie was gone, Lord Lyd-'
brook summoned sufficient energy to
take the next train to Highnam Hall.
Highnam Hall is in Hertfordshire,
within two hours of London. By the
time he arrived ther,e Lord Lydbrook
had decided on his course of " action,
and had assumed his usual placid, imperturbable
frame of mind. He had a
long conversation with Lady Julia,
whose complete helplessness convinced
him of the necessity of his interference.
It appeared that when Lady Julia and
her family were in London, last season,
Miss Eva lised to ride in tho park eveiy
mornirg, attended by the second coachman
as groom. The man was a
fellow, superior to his
class both in manners and appearance,
with some little education. His civility
attracted the notice of his young
mistress, who got into the habit of exchanging
a few words with him during:
their rides. Some friend'
warned Lady Julia of the danger, real
or imaginary, to which her daughter
was exposed, and the anxious mother,
by her injudicious remonstrances and
reproaches, succeeded in rousing Miss
Evas del' aut temper. The groom was
immediately dismissed with ignominy,
and Miss Eva Marc hmont, who probably
had not thought much about him before,
began to fancy she had a regard for
him. The young man worked upon the
girl's feelings, and at length persuaded
her to listen to his ardent devotion,
until she one day horrified her mother
by announcing that she was engaged
to him. Lady Julia left London in the
middle of the season, in tho hope of removing
her daughter out of the man's
reach, out the young follow followed
his lady love intb the country, and was
at present staying in the village. The
girl seemed determined to have her own
way, and was so indifferent to her
mother's remonstrances, that Lady Julia
hadjalmost abandoned herself to despair,
and talked in the most foolish mariner of
the possibility of a marriage actually
Having learned tall tho details of the
unfortunate affair, Lord Lydbrook joined
his young nephews and nieces at luncheon.
Lady Julia had several children,
all plain, and uninteresting except Eva,
whose face was ueclcjisgiy intellectual, if
notThithdsqmb,' 'She was her uncle's
favorite, perhaps bepauso he was the
only persou who could manage her But
Lord Lydbrook owed this ascendenay
rather to his tact and coolness than to
the respect due to his agp and relation
ship. Miss. Eva's rebellious spirit and
passionate temper made her resent the
autjiority.of hbr. elHo'rs, and her uncle
was perfectly aliveto the delicate nature
of the task which lay before him.
Lord Lydbrook's manner was charming
when his favorite niece made her
appearance. The young lady had heard
of her uncle's arrival, an 1 was prepared
to defv him, as she had done her mother
and sisters. She entered the room
with flushed cheeks and glistening eyes,
ready to hold her own against all the
uncles in the world. To her surprise,
however, Lord Lydbrook greeted her
affectionately and paid her a flattering
compliment. He even inquired after
"Mr. Charles," and hoped to have the
pleasure of making his acqua:ntance.
There was no suspicion of sarcasm in
her uncle's tone, so the girl was' forced
to believe in his sincerity. The "Mr.
Charles" sounded contemptuous, but
when she reflected that she herself did
not know the surname of her lowly admirer,
she could not accuse her uncle of
disrespect. Lord Lydbrook did not embarrass
his niece by asking further questions,
but proceeded to give an interesting
account of his recent expedition.
describing the places he had risited and
the people he had seen in that inimitable
vein of dry humor for which he was
famous among his friends.
After lunch Lord Lydbrook lit a cigar
and strolled leisurely across the park to
the village. He called at the "Three
Cups" inn and asked for 'Mr. Charles."
The young man looked very ill at ease
he saw the peer. But whon his
lordship politely said he had called
on purpose to make his acquaintance,
and oflered him a cigar, "Mr. Charles"
recovered himself a little. Lord Lydbrook
ordered a bottle of wine to be
brought into the coffee-room, and while
waiting for his refreshment he had time
to take stock of the young man's appearance.
"Mr. Charles" was quite
good-looking enough to turn the head
of a young and impressionable girl, but
there was an expression of low cunning
on his face which convinced Lord Lydbrook
that he was shrewd and unscrupulous
in short, a dangerous mail to deal
"Mr. Charles" showed his wisdom by
leaving his lordship to explain the object
of his visit. Most mon in Lord
Lydbrook's situation would have felt
embarrassed, but the cool-headed Peer
was quite unperturbed. He said with
charminjr frankness that his niece's
family cou'd not pretend to be gratified
at the choice she had made. On the
other hand it was 'impossible to ignore
tho fact that she was old enough to
know her own mind. Her family objected
very much to the young lady
carrying on a clandestine love affair, and
as yet they were not prepared to recognize
the engagement Under these circumstances,
Lord Lydbrook suggested
that the best course would be for "Mr.
Charles" to visit at the house as a friend
of the family, and perhaps in time the
engagement might bo declared. Lord
Lydbrook concluded by saying that
Lady Julia would be delighted" if "Mr.
Charles" would dine at the hall that
It was easy to see that "Mr. Charles"
was both gratified and astonished by
Lord Lydbrook's suggestion; but ho
hesitated to accept thd invitation, and
endeavored to excuse himself on tho
ground of having no clothes fit to come
m. Lord Lybrook immediately replied
that he had a spare stilt of dress-clothes
in Jiis portmanteau, and would send it
down at once. There was no rosisting
his lordship's cordiality, and. fortified
by the wine ho had been drinking, tho
young man promised to dino at tho hall
at seven o'clock.
When Lord .Lydbrook told his sistqi
what ho Had donp, Jier adyslup nearly
liad a fit. The Peer wis bbliged tc
usp all s i influence to icppcilslj'her Jo,
his proje'oL ', Apy"b(hpV 'eyming pro.
tested poor Lady Julia, in floods .of,
I tears, would not have mattered so much;
but to-night, when Mr. and Mrs.
Travors were dining at the nouse, and
young Mr. Mapleton, who admired Eva
so, and would be such an excellent
match! But Lord Lydbrook prevailed, as
usual. Mr. and Mrs. Travers, he replied,
were old and intimate frionds, to
whom everything could be explained,
anil he would make the necessary
apologies to young Mapleton,
if any should be needed. Lady
Julia calmed down after awhile, antl
just before dinner was announced, when
all tho other guests had arrived, the astonished
butler ushered in "Mr.
Lord Lydbrook advanced to meet his
guest with perfect affability. The poor
young mad looked so sheepish and awkward
that his appearance was quite pitiable.
All his good looks seemed to
have vanished; his face shone with soap,
his hair glistened w.'th pomatum, his
clothes or rather Lord Lydbrook's
did not fit him, and his hands looked
painfully large and red. Poor, Lady
Julia shuddered as she gave him the
tips of her fingers, and Tier daughters
bowed and were fa'rly horror-stricken.
"Mr. Charles'" arrival was a surprise
to every one but Lord Lydbrook and
Lady Julia, and especially to Eva.
The poor girl was covered with confusion,
'and, though she gallantly rallied
and went and sat by her lover, it was
evident to her uncle's keen eyes that
she was as much shockedas any one.
The dinner was like a dreadful nightmare
to the hostess and her daughters,
whoso worst anticipations were realized
by "Mr. Charles' " behavior. If he had
only had the sense to keep silence, his
awkward habit of putting his knife in
his mouth and the innumerable social
solecisms he committed m'ght have escaped
notice; but, whether from ex
treme nervousness or from the idea
that he ought to assert himself, he persisted
in talking loudly to every one,
and every word he uttered was a flagrant
oftense against good taste and the
Queen's Eng ish. Lord Lydbrook was
in his wickedest mood, and, to his
aister's horror, amused himself by
drawing out the unsophisticated guest.
Affecting a deep interest in the young
man's opinions on all subjects, his
Lordship meicilessly caused him to
betray his ignorance, his innate vulgarity,
and his coarseness of nrnd with
hideous distinctness. Flattered by the
notice he received, "Mr. Charles"
soon became offensively familiar, and,
as dinner proceeded" with, showed
symptoms of intoxication. He grew
quarrelsome and noisy, contradicted
Lady Julia, let fall an oath, (for which
he had sense enough to apologize), and
even snubbed Eva h?rself when she attempted
to restrain him. Tho
sat upon thorns the whole
evening, and never felt so bitterly
humiliated in her life. But she was too
proud and too loyal to desert her lover,
and, though inexpressibly shocked by
the. exhibition ho was making of himself,
she addressed jher conversation to
him, and did her best to smooth matters
over. Her uncle was so touched by her
ardentdistress that he signalo I to Lady
Julia to lead tho way to tho drawing-room
immediately after dinner.
Lord Lydbrook did not allow "Mr.
Charles" to join tho ladies in the
drawing-room; in fact, the young man
was not in a fit state for Indies" society.
With some difficulty he persuaded
him to leave tho house, and sent him .
baok to tho "Three Cups" under the.,
escort of one of the stable-boys. Tl;o
