In the house of liodney there is

upon it. Hiul something that touches on

in her chair with her scented handker

aloud and refuses to be comforted.

And so does Captain liodney.
Meantime, Violet is having rather a
bad time in the boudoir. Lady liodney
ictuses to see light anywhere, and talks
on in a disjointed fashion about this
disgrace that has befallen the family.
"Of course I shall never leeeive her;
that is out of the question, Violet; I
could not support it.
"1'iiit she w ill be living only six miles
from you. and the county w ill surely
call, and that will not Ihj nice for you,''
"I don't cate about the county. It
must think what it like-.: and when it
knows her it will sympathize wilh me.
Oti! what a name! Scully! Was there
ever so dreadtul a name?"
"It is not a bad name in Ireland.
There are very good people of that
name-the Vincent Scullys. -everybody
lias heard of them," says Violet. gently.
Hut her fiiend will not consent to hear
anything that tnav soften the thought
of Mona. The girl hits entrapped her
sou, has basely captured him and made
him her own beyond redemption; and
what wolds t an be bad enough to con
vey her hal red of the woman who has
done this deed.
"I meant him for you," she says, in
an ill-advised moment, addressing the
gill who is bending over her couch, as
siduously and tenderly applying eau-de-colognt!
in her temples. It is just si lit
tle too much. Miss Mauseigh fails to
sec the compliment in this remark. She
draws her breath a little quickly, and as
the color comes her temper goes.
"Hear Lady lioilney, you are really
too kind," she says, in a tone soft ami
measured as uual. but without the
sweetness. In her heart there is some
thing that amounts as neai ly to indig-
linul anger as so thoroughly well-bred
and well-regiilaled a girl can feel. "Vou
are better, I think." she says, calmly,
without any settled foundation for the
thought; and then she lays down the
perliiine-bnttle. takes ui her handker
chief, and. with a last unimportant
word or two. walks out of the room.

Now, I can't explain why, but I
never knew a young man who'was not
annoyed when the girl he loved was
spoken of as a "young woman." (leof

"There is a limit to even thing -even
my patience," he says, not looking at
his mother. "Mona is myself, ami even
from you. my mother, whom I love and

lioilney grows silent. The husband (if
her youth had been dear to her, in a
way, until age had soured him, and this
one of all his three children most close

blush -for the blood rises with difficulty

And then (ieollrey, marking all this,
is vexed within himself, and, going over
to her, lays his arm once more around

ingly. "Oh. (ieotTrev. how' could you do it?"
she says, reproachfully, alluding to his
marriage; "you whom" 1 have so loved.

"Well perhaps I was," Kays (ieollrey,

says (ieolTiey. "I should have bored
her to extinction, even if she had con

sure she never would."
"I wish you had never gone to Ire

A Million Dollars a Second.
There tire periods in men's lives when
time seems woiih about iji.UDO.OOU u
second. One such in -tauce is when u
man arrives nt a railway crossing ono
and oiie-ijU.'irlci' seconds a head of llio
lightning exptc-s. At such times li vo
limn out of tot will .-.laud up ill the
wagon and ritin lil'iei n-potmd blows no
on the otillving di'-triets ef their hor-e s
buck in their nwtul eagerness to savo
that precious hit ot time which the. train
would occupy in passing. It mailers nol
if the hind wheels ami tail-hoard aro
turn oil and n ii' iod vva;'on forever ruin
ed, so long us his life is spared the man
is supremely contented and happy.
This peculiarity of man was illustrated
ut the Naugiitui.'k station this morning.
A roil hair would have been flattened
betweeu the locomotive nnd wagim
wheels, so close was the shave, ltttt
the man wasn't killed nnd has probably
chuckled a hundred times to-day to
think of tho time which he saved.--tcrbury
