A HEART OF GOLD.
What dot's it mean, mother? What
And tht! speaker's great brown eyes
diluted in wonder as tho cider woman
echoed her words.
'What does it mean? It means that
we're rieh, child. It means that all my
ambitious dreams for you may uu real
ized. It means that tho inheritance
I was robbed of by treachery for so
many years is mine at last, and that I
can make a lady of my ffirl."
lint none of the gladness on her face
was depicted on the face of her listener.
True, a crimson flush rose to Nora
Fane's cheek, and the red lips quivered,
but it was as though some sudden fear
had startled rather than sudden joy be
"Does does Arthur know?" she ques
tioned. "Arthur!" repeated Mrs. Fane, con
temptuously. "Nora, there must be an
end to nil that nonsense now; 1 never
approved of it from the tirst, but you
seemed to have so set your heart on it,
and it wasn't likely you'd have any
belter chance, and so you wrung from
mo my consent. 15ut everything's
changed now, ami he'll know without
the telling that he'll have to look else
where for his wife!"
"Elsewhere for his wife!" drearily
answered the nrl, and there was now
in her voice a despairing sound. "Oh
mother, vou don't know Arthur. Do
you think if he couldn't haw me he'd
no willing to lake someone else to his
home and his heart? No, no! wo are
too much alike for that. Vou may not
let me marry Arthur, mother, but you
cannot make me marry anyone else. I
love him 1 have, loved him all my life.
Oh, mother, mother, do not make this
money hateful to me. You may have it
all wo will not lay claim to a singlo
penny. No wealth could make us hap
pier. Only leave us to each other!"
And, in her pleading, tho girl would
have thrown heref upon her mother's
breast, but that her arms repulsed her,
and her hard face grew harder as kho
answered, with a cruel laugh:
"I'm doing what's for your best good,
child, ami one of these days, when you
have seen something of the world, you'll
acknowledge it. I married for love,
ami look what my life's been. I could
not break the fetters which held me to
my home, for, poor and wretched as I
thought it, it was my nil; but to-day
things are different to-day "
"Well, Mrs. Fane, what is to-day as
differing from other days?" interrupted
a bright, cheery voice" from the open
doorway, suddenly darkened by thu
shadow of a new coiner whose voice ad
dressed ilio elder woman, but whoso
eves, -Mint, honest c cs. sought the
With a low cry, almost, a, sob, Nora
threw herself in 'his arms, which opened
with eager gladness to clasp the young,
slender figure, and closed about her
with almost reverential tenderness.
''Why, what's gone wrong, little las.
He?" lei exclaimed, in quick concern.
'l thought, from the few words I hoard
Mrs. Kane speak, something good had
"And mi it, has," answered the moth
er. "You're mure sensible than Nora,
Arthur. You will help her to look at
things properly. We've n great piece
of news for y.M1, Arthur. Sly brother

For a moment Arthur Norton's arms
unclasped, and his face grew deathly
Jinlc, but tho girl clung to him all tho
"I hate It, Arthur-I hnto It!" she
He drew tier to him then again, and
lifted his blue eyes quest ioningly, fear
lessly, to Mrs. Fane's face.
"I suppose it'sgood luck, Mrs. Fane,"
ho said, "but sinco Nora and 1 loved,
and were promised each other before all
this was ever dreamed of, I don't think
we'll let it make much difl'erenco be
tween us -only I'd rather had my littlo
lassie all penniless as sho was."
"You don't mean to say you don't see
that now that nonsense must end?"
questioned Mrs. Fano in harsh,' abrupt
tones. "When I gavo my consent to
your marriage with Nora, I gavo it re
luctantly enough as things wcro then;
as they are now, it's simply an absurd
impossibility, and if you're a sensible
fellow, as f take you to he, Arthur Nor
ton, you'll persuade Nora of this.
Doubtless sho'll fret for a time, but oneo
away from these surroundings sho'll
soon learn to forget you."
"Learn to forget me!" mechanically
echoed the man, with white lips.
"Don't believe her, Arthur don't bo
lieve her!" pleaded tho voice, which to
his ears was swectost music; and now
two clinging arms stole about bis neck,
the little nervous lingers tightly inter
lacing in their grasp, as though in that
instant sho was to be torn from him.
"I'll not give her up easily, Mrs.
Fane; I promise you that. 1 know my
little girl better than you know her,M he
went on, nerved by the contact of those
warm, loving arms; "and I know that
she loves mo too well to be readily
taught the lesson of forgetfulncss."
Again the elder woman laughed a
bitter, scornful laugh.
"Do vou think any man knows a
woman?1' sho questioned. "I looked
for more sense from you. Arthur. But
listen what has the child seen of tho
world? Is she capable of judging? If
you are so sure of her, let me take her
away for two years. At the end of that
time, if she's fool enough to want to
come back to the old life, I wipo my
hands of her. But sho comes back pen
niless; remember that!"
"So much tho better, Mrs. Fane.
Give her to me now, penniless. Didn't
I think she was penniless when sho
made me the richest, happiest man in
all the world, by her sweet promise?
But don't separate us for two years. Jt
would be cruel!"
"You think so? Well, I would have
talked just so when I was married. I
have lived to see the day when I knew
it would have saved me utter misery.
At least, give Nora the chance 1 have
Sho had inserted the blade in the
weak portion of his armor. Perhaps it
was true what she said; perhaps, one
day, Nora might awaken from her
dream and blame him.
"You may be right, Mrs. Fane," ho
answered, and in his tone there was a
strange quiet. "I'll give her the chance
you speak of. But my little girl here
knows that when her wiugs are weary,
bo it in two years, two months, ten
years, or twenty, I am here, and I am
waiting for her."
"Arthur, Arthur! don't give me up!"
she sobbed, as he unclasped his arms
from about her.
"I must tro, darling!" be answered
"It is for you now to return to me."
And with one last, long, lingering
kiss upon the sweet, tremulous lips, he
turned away and left her in the bitter
mockery of the Juno sunshine Hooding
through tho doorway.
"It's all nonsense, Nora! Anyone
would suppose, now that you had seen
something of the world, you'd have
learned a little common sense. There's'
not another girl in hnglamt won hi re
fuse the chance of being a peer's wife."
Mrs. Fane's voice had lost none of its
harshness, her face none of its hardness,
though twelve long months bad come
and gone since wealth had come to her
But if with her Time had wrought no
change, not so was it with the girl, who
sat tightly locking her fingers, her
great brown eyes resting not on the
speaker's face, but out away through
tho open window, even to tho little cot
tage which the thought of home ever
brought to her mental vision tho cot
tage where now was only a lonely man,
waiting ami watching.
Yet, was it as hard for him as for her?
Ho at least might bo left in silence,
thought, and prayer. She was dragged
into the whirl which was wearing her
out body and soul. The tiro was iu her
voice as she answered:
"Why will you persist, mother? I
tell you there is but one man I will
marry. His name you already know,"
and, with quiet dignity, she rose and
left tho room.
No need of further argument, it could
only bring pain. A fierce anger darted
into tho elder woman's eyes. Words,
remonstrances, sho could have met and
might have hoped to overcome, but this
quiet, resolute firmness ballled her.
"She drives me to it!" she muttered
to herself, in reference to some hidden
thought. "She drives me to it! But one
day she'll thank me one day, when
she's Ijord Fj'lesniere's wife."
Tho next few weeks .were strangely
undisturbed to Nora. She even found
some pleasure in Lord Krlesmere's so
ciety, since ho no longer pressed his
suit, and her mother seemed grown more
tender, and once even had spoken to
her of Arthur, and kindly, too.
Poor child! It was the calm
itlg the storm.
Sho entered tho breakfast-room one
morning, to find her mother reading an
open letter, a cruel smilo of satisfaction
on her thin lips.
"It 8 from Arthur Norton, she said,
noting her daughter's entrance, but
not glancing up from the page. "Ho is

Later in the day a telegram reached
Mrs. Fane as to where Nora might be
