A STORY OF THESE TIMES.
"iviiU Ih.ioI' miyn .c-.ft'i-ny, "I won't
have Mona spoiled. 11 she lutein i n
headache, she hadn't, you know, and
that's all about it. Why should she tell
a lie about it?''
"What do jou mean. OcoiTrey?'' de
mands bis mother, with suppressed in
dignation. LI mean that she shall remain as she
is. This world may be 'given to Iving,'
as Shakspearc tells us, but I will not
have Mona tutored into telling fashion
able falsehoods," says this intrepid
young man, facing his mother without
a qualm or a passing dread. "A lie of
anv sort is base, and a prevarication is
only a mean lie. She is truthful, let
her stay so. Why should she learn it is
the correct thing' to say she is not at
home when she is. or that she is suffer
ing from a foolish megrim when she
isn't? 1 don't suppose there- is nilich
harm in saying either of these things,
as nobody ever believes them; but let
her remain as she i.s."
"Is she also to learn that you are at
liberty to lecture your own mother?"
asks Lady Rodney,' pal" with anger.
"I am not lecturing any one," replies
he, looking very like her. now that his
face has whitened a little and a quick
fire has lit itself within his eyes. "1 am
merely speaking against a general prac
tice. 'Pare to be true; nothing can need
a lie,' is a line that always ictiiins to
me. And, as I love Mon.'i better than
anything on earth, 1 shall make it tho
business of my life to see .she is not
made unhappy'by any one."
At this moment .Mima lifts her head,
and turns upon him eyes full of the
tenderest love and trust. She would
have dearly liked to go to him, and
place her linns round his neck, and
thank him with n fond caress for this
speech, hut some innate sense of breed
ing restrains her.
"Still, sometimes, vou know, it is
awkward to adhere to I ho very letter of
the law," says Jack Rodney, easily. "Is
there no compromise? 1 have heard of
women who have mado a point of run
ning into the kitchen-garden when un
welcome visitors were announced, and
no saved themselves and their principles.
Couldn't Mona do that?"

"Ah! now, that is more reasonable;

briskly. e return to our muttons.'

a toothache, or a nightmare, in my life."
"Or an umbrella, you should add. I
once knew a woman like that, but she
was not like you," says Poatie. "Well,
if you are going to be as literal as you
now are, until you call for your shroud,
1 must say I don't envy you."
"'Re virtuous and you'll be happy,
but you won't have a good time,' "
quotes Violet; "you should take to heart
that latest of copy-hook texts."
"Oh, fancy receiving the Boers when
ever they call," says Poatie, faintly,
with a deep sigh that is almost a groan.
"I shan't mind it very much." savs
Mona, earnestly. "Itw'ill be, after all,

hours, "which delights Poatie.
"You and I appreciate Jack, if she
doesn't, don't we, Mona?" she says,
with pretty malice, echoing Mona's
merriment. After which the would-be

girls, clothing themselves in furs, go
for a walk before the day quite closes
Lights are blazing, fiddles are sound

Kven still, though the ball at tho low
ers has been opened long since by Mona
and the Puke of Lauderdale, the flick

the road bright, by casting tiny rays up
on the frosted ground. .
The fourt h dance has come to an end;
cards are full; every one is settling
down in earnest; already the first touch

disappointment is making itself
Mona, who has again been dancing
with tho duje, stopping near where the
duchess is silting, the latter beckons
her to her side bv a slight wave of her

lovely face, and admire her tranquil but
brilliant smile, gives her a strange

taking her hand from Lauderdale's arm,
drops into the proffered seat beside his
mother, much to that young man's cha
grin, who, having inherited the mater
nal hunkering after that "delightful
prejudice." as Theocritus terms beauty,
is decidedly finnrh with Mrs. (ieoffrey.
and takes it badly being done out of his

"She took her to see the lake. Mona,

"She is very absurd, and more trouble
some and unpleasant than anybody I
ever had in my house. Of course the
duchess did not want to see tho water.

I begin to think, indeed, that Lilian
Chetwoode is rat her out of it, and Mona
is the hrst favorite at present. Sho has
evidently taken the duchess by storm."
"Why not say the duke too?" says his
mother, with a cold glance, to wnom
praise of Mona is anything but "cakes
and ale." "Her flirtation with him is
very apparent. It is disgraceful. Every

"Vou are slightly nonsensical when
on the subject of Mona." savs Sir .Nich
olas, with a shrug. "Intrigue and she
could not exist in the same atmosphere.
She is to Lauderdale what she is to
every one else. gay, bright, and utterly
wanting in self-conceit. I cannot un
derstand how it is that you alone refuse
to acknowledge her charms. To me sho
is like a little soft sunbeam floating here,
and there, and falling into the hearts of
those around her, carrying light, and
joy. and laughter, and merry music
with her as she goes."
"Vou speak like a lover," savs Lady
Rodney, with an artificial laugh. "Do
you rupnut u'.l thin to Dorothy? Bbe
must nun it very interesting."
" I lorothy and I are quite agreed about
Mona," replies be, calmly. ''She likes
her an much as no. As to what you
sav about her encouraging LaudordaVa
attentions, it is absurd. No such evil
thought could enter her head."
At this instant a soft, ringing laugh,
that once heard is not easily forgotten,
comes h um an inner room, that is care
fully curtained and delicately lighted,
and snuies unon uieir ears.
It is Mona's laugh. Kaising their
eyes, both mother and son turn their
heads hastily (and quite involuntarily)
and gaze upoii the scene beyond. They
are so situated that they can see into
the curtained chamber and mark-the
picture it contains. The duke is bend
mg over Mona in a manner that might
perhaps be termed by an outsider slight
ly emiiirssr, and Mona is looking up at
liini, and both are laughing gayly, Mo
na with all the freshness of unchecked
youth, the duke with such a thorough
and wholesome sense of enjoyment as
ne nas not Known lor years.
Then Mona rises, and they both come
to the entrance of the small room, and
stand where Lady Rodney can over
hear what they are saying.
"(h: so you can ride, then," says
Lauderdale, alluding probably to the
cause oi ins hue disaster.

Mona's dance with Nolly is at an end,
be makes his way to her, and asks her
to give him the next. Unfortunately,
she is not engaged for it, and, being un

quietly, and is soon tloating round the
room with him.
After one turn 6he 6tops abruptly,
near an entrance.
"Tired, "says Rodney, fixing his black

the nearest approach to a falsehood she
has ever made.
"Perhaps you would rather rest

time I have ever been inside the low

is desirous ot making conversation, yet
there is a covert moaning in ins tone.
Mona is silent. To her it seems a base
thing that he should nave accepted tho
invitation at all.

"Vou can seo it now. if you wish,"
says Mona, quickly; the thought that
she roav be able to entertain him in
some fashion that will uot require con

takes his arm and leads him out of the
ball-room, and across the halls into the
library, which is brilliantly lighted, but
