Everybody has called on us, and we rc

met the fifty eligible girls who aw and
marked Humphrey for their own. I have
dined at Kipley in my wedding-dress. It
was a very large and very formal dinner
party, at whlui. I felt bored nd sleepy to
t ie last degree.

his choice of a wife. We are considered
to be an acquisition in every way. And the
very girls whom I deprived of the chance of
a husband grow bright and pleasant at tho
distant prospect of future gayetics at Car

rejoices his heart to hear that Mrs. Car

in the county. I am called fresh, natural,

Humphrey likes to jog quietly through
the lanes, with a safe and steady canter
now and then; and I long to be off, away
over a certain breezy common for a wild
mad gallop. So the riding is not a success.
Humphrey finds out that 1 am not enjoy

I answer, qualifying my delighted affirma

very good of you to come with me ; but, if
I go out with Peter to take care of me, I

We pay solemn rounds of visits together,
and the novelty of my own carriage pleases
me a little. It is as new to my husband
aa to myself; and he laughs gleefully over
nil own genuine unaffected delight in the
possession of all that wealth can buy.
"A year ago," he says, I was poor and
threadbare, living by my brush. Now I
am la my own carriage, with the prettiest
wife man ever had by my tide, and "
"Yet you are not happy," I say laugh
ingly finishing his little speech for him.
"Nay, I did not say that, nor mean it,"
he answers, taking up my words seriously.
"It is awfully strange though, being
rich," I say, leaning bock iu the carriage
and looking up at him as we roll rapidly
and smoothly along the country roads.
To-day I am attired for visiting iu one
of the silk dresses that Lena admired so
much, and I have on a velvet jacket trim
med with fur, and a boncet that only a
Paris milliner could devise adorns my head.
I am thoroughly satisfied with my own ap
pearance. "What are you going to wear at this
ball?" Humphrey asks as tho carriage
turns in at the wide gates; for the Dela
courts' ball Is the theme at present.
"What am I going to wear? Y ou will
see when the time comes," I say gaily.
There! I promise you will be pleased with
my dress. You know you told ire I ir-islit '
wear what 1 liked."
It Is the night of the ball, and I am
standing in my pride and bravery of silk
"My darling, I have never seen you look
so lovely," Humphrey says, and steps back;
to further admire my slim straight seir,
dressed for my first ball; and I confer to
feeling a thrill of satisfaction at being one
of the fair ones of the earth.
My dress is one of my own choosing

feathers; and the Carstairs' family dia

stairs in the olden time had a mania for
diamonds, and the mule members of the
family bought thousands of pounds' worth
of priceless gems, and loaded their wives

I stand and look at the diamonds flash

thoroughly pleased and proud of the suc

any one half so lovely or io sweet before,"
he whispers, raising iny face and gazing
down at me. My wife will be the belle of
the ball to-night."
"Ob, nonsense, Humphrey; you will
make me vain!" I laugh, as with tender
care, he wraps my white cloak around

The strains of the "Manola" are being

as we enter the hall-room and for the first

While we ire speaking to Mrs. Delscottrt
I am watching the dancers surging and
swinging past. I ses Ueorglo Dclacourt
in the arms of a tall and utterly hideous
man, who nevertheless dances well and
steers admirably. Oeorgie looks beaming,
and flashes a smile at me as the passes.
"May 1 have the pleasure 'of ibis dance,
Mrs. Carstairs?" a voice says in my ear;
and, looking up, I see Chris Dclacourt be
side me. And 1 am ioo whirlod off into
the midst of the giddy throng.
"The waltz is half over," be says pres
ently. "I hope you will let me huvo an
"Yes, as many as you like," I answer,
smiling. 'Mr. Delacourt, this Is my first
ball, and I am going to dance all night."
"Your first ball, really?" Chris Del
acourt's face expresses amazement and
amusement combined, mingled with incre
dulity. We have stopped for a moment; the
room is too crowded to dance with com
fort. "Really and truly," I say, laughing, and
looking up to him.
"Well, Mrs. Curstiirs," he says, "you
have lost nothing; a first ball is always the
best; one tires of them soon enough say
ing the same things, meeting the same
people. I do not know, to tell the truth,
wbut pleasure any one can find in balls!"
I am beginning to like Chris Delacourt.
At first I thought him rather silent and
grave; now he is quite talkative. In per
sonal appearance he docs not, resemble
Oeorgie in tbe least. His hair is very fair
the pure true gold generally confined
to children's ileecy locks and he has dark
blue eyes, grave and dreamy. There is
nothing effeminate in his manly face, his
head is well set on hit strong broad shoul
ders, and be walks and moves with a nat
ural careless grace that reminds me of
Oeorgie. Altogether, he Is a good comely
specimen of manhood. Frank and pleasant,
simple-hearted and open, be cares more for
fishing and shooting, and takes more Inter
est in farming his own estate than in any
thing else in the world.
When the waltz is over, Gcorgie comes
up with her cavalier in tow. She looks ra
diant to-night in maize silk made as long
and plain and as severe as possible but it
Mrs. Carstairs, you aie looking too love

fearful ! I am besieged for introductions.
Don't think me rude, but your dress is
perfect. And then the diamonds. I have
made a vow not to marry anyone who can
not provide me with diamonds like yours"
laughing as sho speaks; and I smile a
little sadly, for the flashing jewels cannot
make rue happy.
Then 1 look up and meet a pair of dark
eyes that I seem to recognise, and hear a
voice that is familiar . to ine; and then
Oeorgie in laughing tones says
"Mrs. Carstairs, allow me to Introduce
