"So do I, otten- r m often," says Mr.
Rodney, sadly still, but genially.
"Are you sure?" with cold severity.
"It is only two days ago, since vou told

"There is a reason not to be sur

melancholy tone--"I could not behappy

A pause. Mona mechanically hut ab

all interchange of glances with her de

plainly meditating a fresh attack. Pres

seats himself on the top of it in a de
"I never saw the easy chair I could

This is just a little too much. Mona

bare anus fall lightly before her to their
lull length, ami as her lingers clasp each

into a peal of laughter sweet as music.
At tins he would have drawn her into
his arms, hoping her ay'ty may mean
forgiveness and free absohit ion' for all

she recoils from him.

She stands away from him. and looks
at him w ilh a face somite, yet so ear

unwise to argue further with her just

"And you really mustn't think us
such very big people," says Geoffrey, in
a deprecating tone, "because we' are
anything but that, and. in fact,"- w ith
a sharp contract ion of the brow that be
tokens inward grief "there is rather a
cloud over us just now."
"A cloud?'" says Mona. And I think
in her inmost heart she is rather glad
than otherwise that her lover's people
are not on the top rung of the ladder,
"Yes in a regular hole, you know,"
says Mr. llodnev. "It is rather a com
plicated story, but the truth is, my
grandfather hated his eldest son my
uncle who went to Australia like poi
son, and when dying left all the proper
ty none of which was entailed to his
second son, my father."
"That was a little unfair, wasn't it?"
says Mona. "Why didn't he divide it?"
''Well, that's just it," returns he.
"Hut, you see, he didn't. He willed the
whole thing to my father. He had a
long conversation with mv mother the
very night before his death, in which
he mentioned this will, and where it
was locked up, and all about it; yet the
curious part of the whole matter is this,
that on the morning after his death.
w hen they made search for this will, it
was nowhere to be found! Nor have
we heard tale or tidings of it ever since.
Though of tile fact that it was duly
signed, sealed and delivered, there is no

how then did you manage?"

"Yes," says Mona, who looks, and is,

short way with us."

Badly. "Poor old Nick! it will be a

asks Mona, slowly. "Sure she couldn't

"It won't be her fault; but of course
her people will object, which amounts
to the same thing. She can't go against
her people, joii know."
"1 don't know." snys Mona, uncon

with a villainous leer, "an' 1 wouldn't

In an instant they are locked in each

whose youth and training tell, and wlio
is actually fighting fordear life. In the
confusion the gun goes off, and the bul

men fall heavily to the ground. Pres
