Anxious?" Humphrey echoes, with a
aad yearning ring In hl voice. "Madglu,"
he lays, ' I would give all 1 possess to have
yon care for me like that to know that I
could liriiur Tour soul to your face as I saw
It in your eyei three minute ago to be to

The last words are in a low whisper,
and my eleitr girlish voice breaks in with a
little unsteadiness in Its even tones.
You forget, Humphrey, that I hare
known them all my life, that everything
that belongs to tbe old home 19 part of
myself, and that what touchi thorn touches

phrey answers very gently. You do not
dream of what it is to lore with one's
whole heart and soul, to lire for one face,
one voice for one person to have tbe pow.

His voice falters in intensity as bo pro

can in truth come to man or woman but

"So," 1 answer in a low solemn voice,

"Tlin.uk goodness that I don't !"

upturned face, and then a smile dawns in

you cause to weep!"
Love uud happiueM! Are the two In.
separable? Can one be happy if one does
not love It is a problem that I cannot
solve the sweet bitterness of a heart's
great passion that can count it better "to
have loved and lost than never to have
loved at all." I am heart-whole and fan-,
cy free, my soul untouched by human love
The dreamy days go by. Humphrey has
sketched everything that Is to be sketched,
and to-morrow we are going away. Our
boxes are packed, Humphrey's bead has
been bent over Uradslisw for hours; but
all is arranged at last, and to-morrow eve
ning we say good-bye to the sea and moun
tains, and start for 1'aris.
Side by side we are taking a last walk In
the twilight, looking at the opal-tinted sky
and shadowy sea.
"Not a day longer thau six weeks," I am
saying. Humphrey, we won't stay any

Wliile I am speaking, the hero of my hat
adveuture appears, sauntering along with
the lazy indolent action that seems habit
ual to him.
I smile as our eyes meet, and he takes
off his hat; I think be expects me to speak
to him; but any such expectations are
nipped in the bud, for Humphrey walks ou
steadily, and my band being on his arm, I
am forced to keep pace with bis long slci ,
or be h;ft behind.

01 We," he begins, was merely the
ordinary existence of hundred of men,
working day after day, and with no pros
pect of ever belu anything else but a poor
man. I was of an independent spirit, and
1 was too proud to go, cap Id hand, to any
of my relatives. I learned too bitter a lcs.
son to care to try that a-uln. I think I
told you that old Anthony Cnrstairs, who
eventually ma'1'; me ids lieir was my fa.
thcr's brother. Tbey quarrelled when
they were young men together, and my fa
ther was turned out of Cnrstairs. Uncle
Anthony was in the wrong; but he was
tbe elder son, and of course did what he
liked. The two brothers never saw each
otberagain. My fathrr made Just enough
by his oil-paintings to keep body and soul
together. He died when I was three years
old. When I was fifteen a great gawky
boy, who spent half of his days daubing
in oils my mother died; and when she was
dying she made me promise to go and see
my uncle Anthony. I think, poor soul,
she thought his heart would warm to bis
brother's son. So one day I started for
Carstairs, the old family place that had be
longed to the Carstalrs for years. Autho.
ny Curst Kirs was not married, he was a
cross, crabbed old bachelor, and was toad
ied, worshipped and courted by his rel
atives. 'Another beggar!' he said, when I was
ushered Into bis presence.
'I remember tbe scene woll the cynl

sour expression, and the great long-limbed

straight into his passionate face. 'And,

with indignation, X left him.

say; sud then he shouted out, 'Hoy, I say

"But my long legs carried me away
down the avenue, and F never saw Car
stairs again until I entered its gates as its

face with glistening eyes, "I like you for
your spirit ; if you had cringed and fawned
upon that old man, I should have hated
Humphrey laughs a little 04 he goes on
with his story.
I believe old uncle Anthony took a Jan
cy to me, and made several attempts to
find out where I lived; but ho was too
proud to do so openly ; and so I never knew
in reality that the poor old man was try
ing to atone to his brother's son. I was
struggling with poverty in London from
boyhood to manhood, lor twenty-live long,
long years, trying, as my father had done,
to make money by 111 v pictures, sometimes
I succeeded, more often by far I was heart
sick from failure and sickened by disap
pointment. But one day I saw an adver
tisement in the Times which stated that in
formation was wanted of the whereabout
of 'Humphrey Carstairs, nephew of the late
Anthony Carstairs.' To my great surprise
I found that unci Anthony had left mc
everything belonging to him, at the last
outwitting bis numerous relatives who
had watched for his death so long."
Humphrey's voice grows earnest, and
lie takes one of my hands suddenly in his.
"It was all plain sailing after that, darl
ing; and now I only want one thing to
make me tbe bnppiest man 011 earth."
And that," I say without the slightest
idea of what is coming. "What is the one

me for not liking him better.

even to my satisfaction. Humphrey wants

laugh at his suggestions. We decide upon

"Who comes next?" Humphrey asks

tired of purchasing watches, I fancy Jack
would rejoice over a silver one. What do

1 uui sure he would be delighted,

at the cost of our presents. There are
