by some unknown force to say anything
that shall restore the girl to evenness of

"Yes, the ono with the brown feath

"You dance, of course," says Lady

"Oh, yes," says Mona, brightening
even under this 'unall touch of friendli
ness. 'Tin very fond of it, too. I can
get through all the steps without a mis

Rodney stares in bewildeunent.
"Ah, waltzes and polkas )ou mean?"

"1 never saw your equal," says (icof
frey, who, with'Sir Nicholas, has been
listening to the last half of the conver
sation, and who is plainly suppressing'
a strong desire to laugh.
"Do j on remember the evening you
taiight 'me the country dance that 1 said
was like an old-fashioned minuet? And
what an apt pupil I proved! 1 really
think 1 could dance it now. liy the bye,
my mother never saw one danced.

out much. Let us go through one now
for her benefit."
"Yes, let us." says Mona. gayly.
'Tray do not give yourselves so much

dignation. "It won't trouble us, not a M," says
Mrs. lieollrey, rising with alacrity. "I
shall love it,'the floor is so nice and
slippery. Can anv one whistle?"
At tliis Sir Nicholas gives way and
laughs out loud, whereon Mona laughs
too. though she reddens slightly, and
says. "Well. (f course, the piano will
do', though the tiddle is best of all."
"Violet, plav us something." says
(icoiliey, who lias quite entered into
the ( pint of the thing, and who doesn't
mind his mother's "horrors" in the
h ast, but remembers how sweet Mmia
used to look, when going slowly and
with that quaint solemn dignity of heis
"through her steps."
"1 shall be chaiuied." says Violet;
'but what is a country dance? Will

"No. I'l.iy anything monotonous,
that is slow ami dlgniticd besides, and
it will answer; in fact, anything at all."

snides and seals heiself at the piano.
"Well, just wait till I tuck up the tail

"There can scarelv be any question
about that," says Lady Uodn'ey, unwill
ing to let any occasion pass that may
permit a slap' at Mona.
"Yet the Princess D always calls
her traiaa 'tail,' " says Violet, turning
on her piano-stool to make this remark,
which is balm to Mona's soul; after
which she once more concentrates her
thoughts on the instrument In-fore her,
and plays some odd old-fashioned air
that suits well the dance ot winch they
have been speaking.
Then (Icoffrey oilers Mona his hand,
