Indeed, many were aJrcitily poim from
town, but there went mill enough left to
more than comfortably 1111 Lady Sea
burton's spaciotii drawing rooms in
Eaton Square, and furnish more couples
than could conveniently find room la
the department devoted bv her ladyship
to the last ball of the season. '
' Two of the giuijts who bad been
danelnj Wether to tho melodious
strains of a dreamy waltz, drew, them
lelvei free from the crowd and sought
tho awning-covered balcony, deserted
for the moment; and then,' looldnr out
Over the moonlit gmiare, Hubert Daryll
Ventured the question which for months
1ast bad hovered 6n Ills lips whenever
io futind himjiclf alonn with Isabel Clan
mont, and received tlio annwer which
daubed bis hopes for ever.
"You do not lovo me?" bo $ald, whb
pavionate J disbelief. '
"Xo!" v . ;
i This with tho aecompaniment of a
littl low, triDiiiof, langh, la answer to
the earnest qucnion, '
' "Yotl have never loved me?"
Again a "No!" and again a laugh;
but the latter this time was a little
forced, and In the deeply, darkly-benuti-ful
violet eyes vs a shade almo'st of fear
as the girl lifted them to Hubert's face
lifted them only to fall again, dreading
to read the story told there.
For a moment there was silence. Tho
two were aioneou the wide balcony. Tho
night was cool, and few were templed
to forego tho charms of Strauss and
Terpsichore within for tho moon-beams
ami night-air without.
The strains of the music were borno
to them, where they stood. A few min
utes before, and to their measure they
had whirled through the mazes of the
dance, be envying no king his kingdom, 1
in the new-born home her beauty and
her loveliness wakened within him; she
glorving in the glory of a new con
quest at tho very close of her summer
Certainly her charms were sufficient
to make new victims no new boast.
Now, .with the softness born of fear
within her eyes, ,a blacWace scarf
thrown carelessly abotlt the small, well
poised head, ancf fastened gracefully by
a gold nail, the sweeping folds of her'
white silk dress clinging closely to the
slight, supple form, it was no difficult
matter to understand tho yearning
pathos which underlined tbo man's ques
tioning. How the music mocked him, too! Fivo
minutes before, and it had whispered
boi, and courage, and love; now it
meant a knell, a dirge, a retiuient.
He was not yet thirty, nnd already his
future was made a barren wasto by the
wtveked harvest of his fairest hopes. Ho
staggered a moment its tho last "Xo!"
fell from the exquisitely-curved lips of
tlecpest scarlet-staggered as though the
tiny, ungloved hand had dealt him nn
actual physical blow t hen he stood still
and silent; and then he spoke. Intense,
concentrated wrath mingled with an
guish, as looking full into the wonderful
eves which had lured htm, be forced
them to return bis gaze.
"So you have never loved me?" ho
Mid. "Are you woman or fiend? Was
I but a toy for votir amusement a Sum
mer plaything? Did you in your heart
lessness conceive me heartless like your
self ? Have you any conception of tho
lire vonr hand has kindled afire which
might have turned all coldness for ever
from your path, but which you now bid
consume upon itself in self-torture far
greater than any living flame might cre
ate? You have never loved me? What
have your eyes told me as they uplifted
themselves with maddening softness to
my face? What have your lips told mo
in' their sweet, soft murmunngs? You
are but nineteen. I fancied you a child
whoso heart was to my gazo an open
page. I thought how I would shield
j-ou In my love from tho deceit and
treacheries of the world, of its men and
its women, and lo! you were already a
proficient in its arts. Again I ask you
why have you dono this thing?"
"You have no right to speak In this
manner," she answered; then: "We both
were fencing with sharp words. It was
our Summer pastime. Forgive mo if
mine slipped and hurt yon."
. "Forgive you!" Oh, how low and In
tense was bis utterance of the two simple
words! "Forgive you! Never, while I
live. I could have forgiven you that
you did not love me, buttuat you should
Lave lured me step by step along tho
treacherous path whose end Is the abyss
cf despairthat, having gained it,- you
burl nis over with a laugh of triumph
at your sorceress arts that your eves
and your lips alike should have lied to
me when I lauded both the home of
truth forgive yon this? Never! Nor i
this all. As you have dealt with rue, so,
pray Heaven, mny man one day deal
with you. So I believe ho will. It is
the law of recompense. As I have loved
you, so you ono day will lovo. Lookirg
(n his face thon, at the moment you
fancy it your heaven, he will laugh yonr
woman's trust, your woman's confi
dence, your woman's love, to seorn. Jn
that moment, though nover before or
after, yon will think of and romombcr
With these words, with deferential
courtoy ho offered her bis arm, escort
cd her back to tho ball room, returned
her to her chaperone, bowed low and
lcftherv. y v - -, -
.The next morning, It was announced
that Hubert Daryll had left London. Isa
bel was forced to bear the brunt of the
abrupt departure; but though tho many
questions pressed upon her showed that
all held a suspicion of the truth, her
f.inclod triumph was savorless and vap
id, and a heavy depression bad settled
upon her spirit she could neither shake
off nor comprehend. : ' " v , '
WUblu a month, ho waver, her format
enenfoment was announced to 1-om
l yndermount, a man full thirty years lvr
senior, Hob: and gouty. The wedding
the following Winter, was noted for lis
splendor, tho bride for her beauty; but
none knew the almost aching heart she
carried beneath the exquisite satin robe
'the heart which was beginning to
know iti own needs, and realize iu own

husband's coffin. lie had bevn very
font, very proud, of his young wife; and
if sometimes be had suspected that ho
bad gratified her ambition, not ber love,
be gavo of his disappointment no sign.
Hut his enemy', the pout, had struck
home to his .'brave, kindly heart, and
solved for him the question of life.
His funeral 'was as splendid ft bad
been his wedding! and then Isabel re
turned alone to the lonely splendor of
the home of which she now held undis
puted right nnd title. ' "i
Did slio grieve? The lovely face was
very pale; the Meiieiite figure wa grace
ful in its deep mourning robes; the se
clusion she assumed of the strictest or
der. What need Was there forth world
to know nioro?,
Tlins three years passed. Then she
emerged from her chrysalis. She still
wore dtdiente lavondera and pearls, but
she hnd laid aside ber crape, and the
beautiful hair1 wa no longer concealed
by her widow's cap. Society bad glad
ly welcomed her return taitd midst, but
the old zest for it had gone.
Sho half determined, ono December
night, to forego nn invitation to dinner
sha had accepted, pleading sudden in
disposition as an -excuse; but tbo re
membrance of her hostess's disappoint
ment induced ber to tear up the unfinish
ed note to this effect, and resign herself
instead to tho bands of her maid, to
mnke fitting toilet for the occasion; nor
bad sho cause to be displeased w ith the
Sho wore, to-night a marvellous con
fection of blended satin aud lace, tho
latter sparkling with tiny jets, which
scintillated as she walked. 'Through the
thin black fabric shone the peerless nock
and arras. A great bunch of natural
jacqueminot roses wero fastened at her
waist. Thev matched the crimson of
ber lips. Her cheeks were quite color
less, but they needed no color.
The guesUt had nearly assembled when
sh entered the puehcas of (Javeston's
"You are looking exquisitely lovely,
my dear," whispered tho latter iu her
ear, as she came forward to receive her.
"We have a truant here to-night ouo
who has deserted bis country for six
long years. . I have chosen hint to take
you (iown to dinner."
Isabel replied indifferently.. Sho was
accustomed to this sort of thing to have
the lion of the day selected for her and
she had grown weary of it. Sho now
looked languidly about the room, even
while she acknowledged and responded
to the greeting of tho three or four men
who gathered about her.
Several feet from her, leaning In care
lejiS grace upon the mantel, with his eyes
fixed upon hyr jfucc, was ligure btrungo
For a moment she did not rccognizo
him. Six years of foreign travel had
left tbeir impress. He was tall, bronzed
and bearded a man to bo noticed and
distinguished, let his surroundings be
what they would. A flush of pleasure
lighted her eves. The next momont be
came forward to greet her.
"I knew that vou were to be hero,"
he said, bow ing low over her hand. "I
am to have you conlidedtomy care dur
ing dinner, Will you trust voursclf with
m"?" ' .
Her heartbeat madly; but, ho stood
calm and impassive as stone. It forced
ber to stille the rush of feeling which
nearly overwhelmed her,'. All theso
years she bad known emptiness. In
this instant sho knew why it had been
so knew Iter own heart at last.
"I am delighted to meet you again,
Lady Undermount," bo "continued.
"Need I add that tho years have left no
touch, sava of additions already uunccd
ed?" His mnnnor was tho manner of a
thorough m:in of the world, jM'rfeet of
its kind; but it chilled nnd hurt her.
The lire could not be dead she once had
kindled sho would fan it.s ashes into
the flame; and all through the splendid
ceremonious meal, to which at this junc
ture they were bidden, tho lovely violet
eyes wero uplifted to Hubert Daryll's
face With a new, luminous. light in their
wonderful depths, and the sweet voice
sank to a soft, almost loving whisper.
Nor had she reason later to complain at
his coldness when, with a murmured
good-night, and a promise to call on tho
morrow, he handed her into her car
riage, and stood bare-headed in the moon
light stood there motionless after it had
passed from sight. -
"Am I a fool or a madman?" he mut
tered then to himself. "Can that wo
man's beauty still movn mo? Does
sho fancy once again to bring me cap
tive to her foot? Oh. to make ber proud
heart feel ami suffer! what penance
would I not enduro?" , . r
Two months had passed, and in her
dainty boudoir Isabel sat with one guest
a guest who bad been very constant
during these latter weeks, lie was seat
ed now on a low fautouilathcrfcoL She
lenned aboro him, with every tone , of
tho flexible voiee in itself a caress.
"Yea, I have been lonely all these
years, she half whispered. "Hubert, I
was very cruel to, you onco, but I learn
ed afterward! that I was far more so to
myself."' ' ' ' ' '
' Ah! did he know did bo dream what
it cost lief pridu td ttttur thoso word.?
Only tha knowledge that his hand never
would break down the barrier hers had
raised, with the added knowledge that
beneath It lay her buried heart, gave her
strength and ponrapo. '
"t should not tcllyou this, perhaps,",
she continued; "but it may help me to
win the, forgiveness you once denied
me.".,i. ' . , ' v,
Tho violet eyes were dig and shadow,
ed by a mist of tears, which yot foil not.
She laid her band .upon his arm. He
felt it tremble. Was tfiis woman so eon
muumato an actress that she must ever
demand new fields for victory t v .
You moan that von havo learned to
i lovo he iald almost boldly. .,
. There was slle'nce for a full admits;
then she spoke ' . - , . , ...
"I mean iliat I have always loved yon,'
The m sin's face gTew deathly pale.
He trembled an instant convulsively,
then he laughed aloud a harsh, - db
cordat latigh and rose to his feet,
"We have played the farce out to the
end now, your ladyship," he sold. "I
have tried to make my skill in fencing1
equal to yours. I must thank you for

mv The audience has been small, but
appreciative. You 'will now permit mn
to bid you good morning. Oa Saturday
He unwed and turned to the door.
She sprang up to detain him, then stood
with one hand grasping the chair for
support, the other held lightly over ber '
This, then, was bis revenue -this her

"Hubert!" Shu -whispered but the ;
one word, but it stilled his passion like
magic "oh, my love my lovo! I am
so wean ! Willyuunut give me rest?"
Over ids fac'o there crept a marvel- ,
ons softness; his grasp upon ber ami
relaxed. The next moment how it
happened, neither knew she was sob

A Long Day.
The house-mother's work Is almost
endless. She has no regidur hours for
labor; they never terminate. From tho
lighting of the tiro in the kitchen or tho
waking of the children, to the extin
guishing of the last light in the bouse,
woman brain aud hand must le busy,
aid wealth generally increases ber labor
instead of diminishing it. The shop
girl has her work assigned to ber; she
has only to begin, without any fore
thought, at a stated hour and end at an
other; but every successful mistress ot
household, small or great, must combine
the qualities of designer, overseer and
workman, nnd rcauzo that not only
property but health, and even life itself,
are in ono way or another seriously af
fected by her work. Perhaps ninety
pine women in a hundred fail to.reallxo
tlio responsibilities of their position;
but, all tho same, their work must be
done. How it is dono every careful ob
server knows; health is sacrificed, and
tlio average woman of forty looks older
thaw her husband at fifty. The homo
work of woman needs revision. With a
slighter physique than men sho is ex
pected to daily -endure a strain that no
man would tolerate for any length of
time. Until what is modestly called
housekeeping is recognized as the noblo
science that it really is, and is carefully
studied, the slaughter of women by
overwork w ill continue for at present
it requires that every woman shall be a
prodigy of sense, industry and endur
ance, in order to discharge hor mani
fold duties with credit lo herself and
comfort to others. .
