To a ucrtain extent she had satisfied her
selfish love. She bad made the future
seem loss gloomy and hopeless, she bad
given herself some hope; nevertheless at
that moment she feared her own power to
sacrifice herself, bhe could even wonder
which might prevail, her love or her pride.
There seemed endless comfort In the
thought that there still remained a link
binding her to hor love; but her pride
might snap It.
Brighton was beginning to fill for the
short Kaster season. The lines of carriages
were becoming less attenuated on the
King's Road. The spring sunshine was
giving brightness to the changing sea, and
winter chilliness was turning into spring
Lady Raven, who in tact and manoBU
vring was unapproachable, suddenly dis
covered that her strength failed her a little,
that her system required bracing after her
long sojourn In the enervating climate of
Nice, and that she must be set up" for
the summer season In town. Sho also be.
ltovedtbe best way to break the link be
tween her niece and the last six months
was to lave London behind them for a
while. All might then begin afresh. Be
sides Mb Worthlngton bad lately lost her
roses. There was a languor and a restless
ness and an apathy about ber which her
aunt began to road aright.
Lady Haven revalued from asking any
questlous about her niece's late life ; she
guessed much, but she preferred to remain
partly In doubt. Moreover, she constantly
praised ths Carrlngtou's for their goodness
iu all ways, the girls especially for tholr
sweetness and refinement. She even vol
unteered the suggestion tbat at a future
time their warm friendship might be re.
newed With advantage to both side. In
this way b( felt tbat she could soothe any
lingering regret or Soreness In Florence's
heart, and stifle feelings so often roused
and irritated by unconcealed objection or
dislike; but she lost few chances or point
logout the difference which must always
exist between their sphere and ber own,
while she carefully respected Florence's
utter silence, Sue noticed her flushing face
when 'the post, though It was rarely,
brought her news from her cousins her
glistening eager eyes while she read it; sh
noted also her fading oolor when she asked
if there was a letter for ber and was told
there Was none.
Lady Kaven took ways and means jus
tifiable in her own eyes, doubtless, for her
conscience was elastic of finding out that
the letters eame from, the Misses Carrlng
ton, and that'they'were harmless in their
eon tents; better still, they were rare in
coming. With that she wu eontent.
Florence herself began to think that the
past six months must have been a dream,
bhe bad lost much of the brightness which
bad dawned upon ber, and In its place
teemed to have gathered all her old haugh
tiness, with more apathy; this, however,
was not displeasing to her aunt, especially
as she found her niece wonderfully docile,
and apparently anxious In all ways to fall
In with her tlews and plans. Florence
wu miserable enough; but herunnhappi
ness was half bidden under a mask of pride
and apathy. The days as they passed were
not unpleasant to her. She tasted a littlo

Lady Raven was rather taken aback; but
sho was alwayt wite in hertact. Florence
was preparing herself for defiance, and
expected a very different reply from her
"Of course not, my dear child. There
is no reason on earth why you should be
subjected to any annoyance from Lord
Vernon; we are not likely to see much of
him I think."

Florence wat amazed at her aunt't gra
cious manner, ner excessive amiability ; but
the words had taken effect in a way that
ber aunt Intended they should.
"I have no feeling in the matter, aunt
Raven; you know yourself that my engage
ment was one of convenience. I never
cared a feather's woight for Lord Vernon
in that I did him wrong, and for aught
I know ht may have bad the tact to dis

"There Is reason, and good reason, in all

that I shall not try to coerce you in any

but I may be wrong. Let us forirct his

are not likely to see him again, and It

that we would be with her tarly to-night.
and we shall both be better for a little rest
before dinner this air always makes me
feel so sleepy. Edwards shall bring some
tea to your room go dear."
Lady Raven knew well that she bad
placed herself upon very advantageous
ground for the encounter she fully intend-
ed to enter into. Florence went itladlv to
her room to brood over past wrongs and
her present pain. She tried to console
horself by writing a long letter to Maud
Harrington, and thus to catch a breath o'
the atmosphere that, in spite of herself.
she loved too well, and which seemed to
revive ber so refreshingly.
Lady Haven had certainly changed very
wonderfully during the past year and
the change was a marvellously pleasunt
one. Ho thought Miss Worthinirton on th
following evening, as she stood before her

and she had alwayt been used to the best
garments that money could buy or debt al
low; this dress however a new one which
she had just donned at Lady Haven's re
questwas too costly for her own purse to
have purchased. Lady Kaven bad ordered
It for her from Mrs. Gilbert a few weeks
before, and Miss Worthlngton't class told
her that tht beauty of it could not be
doubtod. Edwards, her aunt't maid, had
been hovering over ber toilet for the last
hour, and had left her only a few momentt
before. When the girl again appeared, she
entered with her hands filled with crimson
roses and lilies of the valley.
My lady't love, and tht hat tent you
these to brighten your dress a little," Ed
wards told her. "Abrahams hat Just
