"She would not take it. Mr. Strachey,
I inn a very unhappy, girl!" and in this
frame of mind Lucy made her way homo.
If Lucy could have, been happy ntiy
whero she must have ln-en po at ('alder-
I water. It wh the most .'leiuitiful place
she had ever seen. Tho Orange was an
old-fashioned white-washed house, over
grown with roses and honeysuckles. It
was charmingly ijieturesrpio, and withal
most comfortable.' It Btood on a sloping
li ill-side, overlooking the lake, and beyond
the lako was the mountain pass, guarded
by one of the tiiiost mountainu of tho dis
trict. There was a good deal of land at
tached to the house, and Lucy could
watch her own sleok, dappled cows feed
ing in her own rich pastures, could see
them come trooping to the '-byre" at tho
welcome milking hour, could count her
white dots of sheep on the fell sides, feed
her own pigeons and poultry, and lose her
way in her own wood. A very pretty
wood sheltered Calder Grange from all
but gentle winds. It was lull of wild
flowers ami ferns, and a tiny mountain
stream camo tumbling down a rocky bed
from tho heights of the fell abovo and
made its way through it. All in this wood
was left to nature the trees had been
thinned here and there, and winding paths
cut, or miniature bridgea built, and that
For one week Lucy explored her new
territory with Increasing delight. "1
think," she said, "I could live here for
ever, w ithout caring to see any human be
ing but you, Aunt Esther. There is only
one thing that makes me unhappy here,
and that is thoso birds. They sing so joy
ously from morning until night that they
end by making me miserable. I can't bo
so happy as they are that's what they
make nie feel!"
The Mostyna came to pay a long visit at
Calder Orange. Lucy waited for them at
the lodge, and when tho carriage drove
up she was leaning meditatively against
the great gate.
"Well, Lucy," cried Mru. Mostyn, alight
ing, "how do you like the feeling of look
ing over your own gate? Philip says that
that is: one of the great joys of owner
ship!" "I like the feeling of ownership im
mensely," said Lucy, "if only I had not
the consciou.ine.is that I had gained it at
the expense of other people."
"Oh, those stupid Riehmonds, you
mean," cried Mrs. Lettiec.
"Now, Lucy, have done with sm-h non
sense," said Mr. Mostyn. "The place is
yours! If you really can't lie happy till
ymi have given it, up to some one w ho en
vies ymi the posse-isinn of it, begin with
me. If everybody who succeeded to an
estate ran about ottering the greater part
of what he had got to eteryone w ho chose
tothirikheh.nl a 1 Hitter claim to it, the
whole country Would bo turned topsey-tnrvev."
"Yes. really, my dear child," added his
wife; -I think I never heard anything so
idiotic in my life as that expedition of
yours to Mrs. Richmond! lie thankful
that you came out of it so well." Lucy
"Lucy, you were always t'U' vniiif.i',"
said Philip kindlj'. "You sin mid have
consulted Lett ice."
S. .mi days passed -very happy days.
Lucy showed all the beauties of her par
ih ns and woods and fields to Lettice, who
admired them heartily; but she drew the
lines at the cows and poult ry, and refused
to commend them for anything but their
Utility. At last, too, Lettice grew tired of
woods and fields and "outside thing","
and said, "Let us stay in the house this
"Very well,"' said Lucy, and she sealed
herself by the window, and lygan silently
to admire the mountain before her.
Is that mountain yours, Lucy ?" said
"No." replied Lucy
"Then why on earth do you spend your
lime In looking at it? I would not. Let
us spend our time in doing something nice.
Have juit looked into all Iho drawers and
cupboards yet ?"
"No," said Lucy, "it makes me so mel
ancholy. I don't Pike turning over things
w hich belonged to dead people."
"Nonsense! People can't live for ever.
And how horribly crowded and disagreea
ble the-world Would be if they did. I
like this house of yours it is one of the
most comfortable places f ever saw, but. I
wonder you don't explore a little. I have
alw ays wished some one would leave mo a
great house like, tin's full of unexplored
cabinet,-!. Think how nice it would be to
open drawer after drawer, and find dia
mond necklaces nnd ear-rings, and enam
elled portraits of lovely ladies set in dia
monds and pearl. The thing which al
ways worries me is to know lmw far it
would be right for me to take these pearls
and diamonds off the xrt raits to make
Ro'iietliing pi'cfty to wear myself. You

Lucy laughed, and said, "You surely do
not give much time In the question?"
"Yes, I do, when I think about it. Come,
we are doing nothing i let us open that
iiuiripietry affair in the corner, and si e
wlmt we can discover in it."
They found the kej-, they opened Hie
cabinet j inside it in a pigeon-hole they
saw bundles of yellow-looking letters tied
up with ribbon which might once have
b n il blue op fjreen or any color, but was
now dull while. ' Lucy exclaimed, "Tiny

thus was Mr. Kenriek's lost love now al
"If 1 were you I'd burn them." '
"It would be more respectful, perhaps,'
s iid Lucy touching them with tender rev
erence, "It would bo a great deal more si nsibh!
Letters of that kind are always silly, nnd
every one thinks so but tho person who
receives them. Istayl is this her por
trait?" It was a well painted miniature of Mi-s

cried Mrs. Mostyn. "Rut after all, one

That is Mr. Kenriek's writing 1 suppose, '
and so saying Lettico tixik from Lucj'h

Portrait of poor Susan's Iiy." This
was written on another packet and when
they opened it they saw tho likeness of a
goo'l-tenipered, fine-looking boy of nine,
and a lock of soft young hair,
"Oh, do shut up all these things!" cried
Lattice, for she saw that Lucy was begin
ning to nuiko herself miserable over tho
thought that Mr. Kenrick would not have
preserved theso portraits so carefully it
lie had not had a very tender feeling fir
the originals j and if so, why had he pre
ferred a stranger before them? "Shut up
tnoso things, Lucy, and look here," and
she ulli-d out a largo bunch of seals.
That in what they used to dangle s,t their
fobs,' as they called them, and there is
one uf their turnips of watches! I dare
say it was Mr. Kenriek's father's. 1 al
ways think those dear old gentlemen
Ought to have been grateful to the foot
pads and highwaymen w ho relieved them
of such uuwh'ldly burdens."
This new drawer was almost tilled with
things liiUdled as belonging to "my deaf
fnother." Her pomander box was there,
and her equipage. This last was a pretty
little enamelled box with scissors, thimble,
inn dlo-e.i ( and scetit-bottle, made to hang
to the waistband. Her fan was there, her
wedding ring, a bonlmniiiere, and a ring
or two, but tho principal articles uf jew
elry wore absorbed in the large collection
in London. "Mrs. Richmond ought to
have everyone of these things!" cried Lu
cy. "Think of a perfect stranger having

th wood. Lucy still looked as ifsho had

run. arks to you Miss Lucy," said slm.

those odious midges and all that endless
noise of birds my life is a burden to mo

I hate a place w here insect and animal lifo

donkeys conversing incessantly in their

get a moment's rest! Talk of the quiet of
the country, what a mistake! I like a

for a week or two."
The truth was that Mrs. Mostyn had
come to the conclusion that in Lucy's
present excitablo and uncomfortable frame
of mind, Calder Orange was a most unde
sirable place of residence, for her and
wanted to get away to some place whore
she could have more change of scene, and
less time to torment herself with her own
thoughts. Lucy quite understood this
quite saw the drift of all Lettlee's ram
bling and pathetic lamentations but sho
wished to slay where she was and said so.
She had made up her mind to stay at
Calder Orange till November, and she
begged Lettice not to try to perHiiade her
to leave it, 'for her decision was unaltera
ble." "Well, I have said my say, and you do
not agree with me) but you would 1)0
much happier if yon moved about more."
