Bee speaks as if she were discussing
the habits of some animal In natural histo

I seem to have taken up wrong views ol
the subject or Bee hss ; any way w do not
agree. 1 cannot see that the climax of this
. life's happiness is a wedding', but perhaps
there is something wauling in my nature.
All books drive hard and fast to the ulti

and bridegroom leave the church they find
out their mistake.

"you ought to send that story to he pub

Bee laughs over her Imaginary charac

her to "pile up" further, "agonies," and,
on pretext of taking a walk, hurry off to
the town and make straight for Mr. Jones
well-known shop where atatlonery and
euch like commodities may be bad also
valentines, Christmas cards, and various
fancy articles. - '
As I go into the shop in my own impetu
ous fashion, with Crib as or old, leaping
and barking before me, old Mr. Jones rises
precipitately and pushes his spectacles up
to the topof his bald forehead. "
"You're welcome home, Misa ' Madgie,"
he says Carstalrt, f mean. Can I
do anything PSJQU this evening, ma'am r".
And all the time be 'is craning hie neck!
and trying to look round the corner; I sup-,
pose he fancies Humphrey Is outside, and'
is trying to get a peep at him.
"Have you foolscap paper?" I ask, tak-'
ing out my purs with the agreeable con
sciousness of being able to pay for what I
want In the old days our hoarded six
pences were always below the mark re
quired. Now I am in a position to buy up
Mr. Jones' whole shop, and Mr. Jones him
elf, I feel too at a valuation.
He dives into a recess and produces a
goodly pile or the coveted foolscap paper.
"How much?" I ssy, thinking of darling
Beet aeiigm. ... "
"How many quires, Miss? I will count
"I want it all. What's the price 1"
I fancy I have bought up his whole stock,
and feel a delicious sense of satisfaction at

bringing out my name without any doubt
or mistake my new name that I myself
cannot get accustomed to yet. ;
"I will take it myself," I ssy, and, on hia
remonstrating, insist; for I know, If I trust '
to Mr. Jones sending up the psreel, Bee
will have to wait for her foolscap;
It is too heavy indeed, Miss," he asserts.
But I gather up the parcel in my strong
young arms, and step gleefully out in the
unshine, delighted with my purchase.

very warm after a short time; but I strug

up at once In hot championship of the ab

"I don't know that I did think it," he
answers in a different voice. ' "I was vex.

Something compels me to turn and look
at him, and I meet the gaze of two sorrow
ful gray eyes.
' I did not mean one word of my cruel,
un wife-like speech; and, when 1 aee tho

in justification, with tearful earnestness
"Humphrey, I wish I had died, before I

and, lips softening as he reads the repent
ance in my Tace.
' "You know I couldn't mean it; and I
only said the nastiest thing 1 could think
of to make you cross."
It is a very lame explanation; but he is
'satisfied. 1 ' ' " :' "

aa people in books care for each other; but
1 do know how very good you are, and
you aren't angry with me now, are you?"
"Angry with you? Oh, Madgie, the
'caring is not only in books It is in real
life often enough I"
It is the old weary subject again ; and I
walk with downcast face nnd throbbing
heart, my tall husband towering beside mo,
along the well-known road that my feet
have trodden so lightly many times before
I was discontented and wretched and mis
erablebefore I was married. Crib jogs
on contentedly in the dust, looking round
now and then and wagging bis stump or a
tall. All the pleasure has been tnken out
of my purchase and I had pictured such
a blissful moment when Bee's eyes rested
on the pile of paper.
A long deep sigh reaches ears not meant
to hear. Humphrey's voice Is very gentle
when he speaks.
"I am afraid you are tired, darling."
"Oh, no I" with a woe-begone smile. "I
tired!" The idea contains elements of
A few months ago I had not such a word
in my dictionary ; and now it is not bodily
fatigue, hut mental depression that makes
me heart-sick and weary often.
I have ceased to take any Interest in life.
The present has no charms lor me; the
past is too sweet to dwell upon It; and, as
for the future, I see a long vista of dull
dismal years, springs, summers, autumns,
and Chrlstninses, during the time which
I am getting used to Humphrey. I won.
der ir bis t houghts are like mine, and if his
mind is still resting on my unkind speech
of a few minutes ago.
If I ask him, I know he will hark back,
and that eventually the conversation will
come round to the old subject. He loves
me, and I do not love him. He himself
spares me the trouble of thinking of any.
thing safe and suitable to say.
"Will you be ready to come home, next
, week, Madgie?"
"Home I" I echo In astonishment. "Why,
J am at home I Ob, you mean Carstalrs!"
The last words are spoken in blank disap
"I mean our home," he says, quietly
still, though a little sadly. "And you
won't be going away for ever, Madgie '
You wlH see your own people often, and
the girls will be coming to stay with us
when you like."
"Oh, may I ask Bee and Lena soon, very
soon?" I exclaim. "Humphrey, I should

I am aglow with sudden pleasurable ex
citement at the prospect. Why, it would
be hardly like being married if I could
take some or them with me to make the
new. house home-like with their dear'
"I hope you will love Carstalrs for Us
own sake," Humphrey says. "It is a
grand old place, Madgie. But, dear, I
ahduld like to have you all to myself for a
few months till after Christmas and
then you can have tha girls for a long
visit." ' ' ' 1
I turn away my head, and feel a chok
ing sensation in my throat. My husband
knows full well that, when Bee and Lena
come to Carstalrs, their society will
make up the pleasure of my existence. "I
should like to have you all to myself."
They were loving words, whispered in a
fond, manly voice; but I would rather he
had said, "As I shall not want you stall,
have Lena and Bee to amuse yourself." It
ia of no use saying anything. I have vol
untarily given myself to be this man's
wife; and so when 1 speak 1 think he can
pot and does not detect any or the disap.
nointment In my calm quiet words.
"That will do very well," I lay, as we
turn In at the white gate, and go up the
short avenue between the high laurel
hedges and are at home.
When we get into the hall, Humphrey
lays the ponderous weighty parcol on my
outstretched arms; and I look up into his
face for a second, for my conscience troubles
"You don't think I meant what I said?"
I murmur in a subdued scarcely audible
1 The color rushes to his fare; and he
holds me parcel and all, close to him for a
econd, and whispers some extremely Idi
otic things into my ear. For such a big
man he is weakly foolish; and, oh, I wish
he did not look so rap tu ions ry happy when

Bee never guesses the hard word that
pasted over that foolscap paper; she never
dreams, as she thanks ine rapturously, how
hard and bitter my' thoughts have been.
"How did you carry it Madgie," she
tayt. ,, ! ' " ' '
"Humphrey carried it," I answer.
"And, oh," she exclaims, "fancy tlx

And off we go, flying like the wind

breathless, gasping out welcome to the tall
old man who stands with a smile on bis
dear old face, and with his hands out.
"Well, Jack und Bee too and you,

"I think you do," allows Jack.
"Did you know I had given Hector to

I lelong to them all no longer; even my
own dear old friend the Colonel has trans
ferred his allegiance to Bee. ' For years he
kept a horse solely and especially for my
use. I was the only one of the family he
really knew or cared about; now I am for
gotten. And again I feel as if I had come
back from the grave, and were seeing my
place filled up, my vacant chair occupied.
It is foolish and unreasonable but tears
stand in my eyes when I hear Colonel
Trevannion talking to Bee as once he
talked only to me; and. I awake to the
knowlcdgo that I have given .everything
up and got nothing in exchange nothing.
I have Humphrey's love and ten thousand
a year; and 1 value one about as much as I
do the other.
We are walking back slowly acron the
field. ' I am not talking; just now I am too
unhappy to attempt to be cheerful.
"Madcap, what has come over you?"
I look up, and see the Colonel's dear
kind old face turned toward me the
bronzed old face, with the long white
moustache, and the kind dark eyes I know
"Nothing," I answer but he shakes his
"It can't he 'nothing,' when those blue
eyes are filled with tears, madcap. I never

"Oh, please don't!" I say imploringly,
and hastily brush away the unhidden tear
drops. I can hear him sigh at my words,
"We miss you sadly, my child," he says
presently. "When I came home, a month

"Do you remember' the .day you mot me

"I remember it well,'' he answers, smll.

standing looking at me, defiant, pleading,
and mischievous all in one,"
"I wns dreadfully frightened," I say
laughing, thinking of that day so many
years ago, when Col. Trevannion caught
Lena, Bee, and me stealing pheasants' eggt
for private hatching. At first sight of the
Colonel's face Bee and Lena took to their
heels, got over the wire fencing, and flew
like hunted bares across the field, leaving
me with my hands full of pheasant's eggs.
I turned and stood at hay.

mad thumplug of my heart, and, when ha
held out his hand, I put mine into It, and

I think Miss Trevannion is a little sur

hour. But it Is not the first time the Colo
nel has brought us home to breakfast, and
the greets us very kindly.
"You will forgive my not, having called
on you, Madgie," she says, chut I seldom

"But why should you call on me?" I ex
claim. . And then it Hashes on me that I
am married; and I add, in the sad dismal
voice in which 1 always refer to my pres

right merrily, I flatter myself. Do you
