As a flower sends forth Its fragrance

home atmosphere which surrounded her
for the liist time, soften and Improve; she
grew more yielding, less Hclf-eoiitlilcht
Often iu spite of herself, she found her

She found herself listening to the young
man's solt voice and often joining in his
light laugh, hut always under secret pro-

On the evening of Philip's return sho

Days and weeks passed In Florence
Worthington's new home. Summer was
fading iuto autumn; the long lingering
evenings In the old fashioned garden were
gradually subsiding iuto others scarcely
less pleasant, but spent within disirs, over
billiards, music, needlework, and reading.
Ihere were evenings when Horence
would decline to take part in any or the
family pleasures when slie would sit with
Hushed face bent down persistently over
fancy work, repelling all her cousins' ad
vances, and when the chief culprit, 1'hilip,
would api'iir perfectly blind to her changed
manner, und would meet her always on her
own ground, ready iu a moment to be ci
ther friend or foe as she chose. Hut Flor
ence often found that, when they were
foes it was she who had to make the first
concession to he friends worse still, she
felt herself utterly miserable until they
were so. There were times when she was
often stung to the ijuick because l'hilip's
laugh was so constant and mirthful, and
his Mue eye so bright and mocking. Then
slic would sit apart in stately silence until
he had provoked her iuto quarreling with
him again. In spite of all wrangling she
found herself anxiouMy awaiting the even
ing meal, which nearly always brought
with It the society of her hated coiisiu
1'hllip. Her letters to her aunt, who wus
now in Nice, were anything hut frco,uciit;
still in some of them she nmt have be
trayed a secret happiness; for Lady Uaven
wrote back rather fully to her niece, con
gratulating her uion her good sense in be
ing able to conform so cheerfully to her
present life while it should last, but ur
gently advising her Iu no way to entangle
herself irritrievably with her new relative
so that she could not. easily withdraw from
a close intimacy, should she Ik- culled U
on to do so tiK)ii any future time. Tin y
were most estimable pmple, Lady Haven
wrote, and worthy of ull consideration and
gratitude; hut still under her guidance, ;i
little time hence, there could be no reason
why Florence should not niuke a match
suitaifle to her position a portion which
might exclude relatives who were engaged
iu trade. Above all thing she warned her
against any sort of entanglement with lu r
steiKOUsln Philip, though she felt sure
such advice must be ipulte superfluous as
Florence's good taste and breeding must
preclude such a possibility.
With a curling lip Florence read the let-

Moreover, Florence had unluckily re

self asked her again, urged her enough, she
would have gratitied her burning desire by
graciously yielding; but he had done so on

his invitation was not repeated.
In vain Maud took it lor granted that

pretty Ethel pleaded pleading which few
could have resisted. Florence waited like
a spoilt child for words that did not come,
for a sweet voice that was dumb; and her
persistent refusal became almost tearllll
with vexation, the girl thought at their
persistence, and they ceased to urge.
The time was at hand, and they were all
on the point of starting for Oxford Street
and the dreadful shop, their pleasure not
a little spoilt by their cousin's unsociable,
lies. Florence tried to settle down to
answer her aunt's letters, but was almost
in tears as she saw the girls pass her disir,
nodding their good-bve on the way and
promising not tu be late. Tin n there was
