LIFE IN AUSTRALIA.
Hietruthwas.no sooner had the- la
dies gone than Philip IMhurst, as if he
had nearfl Aunt Crane's remark re
apccting false pretenses, determined to
acquaint the colonel with the truth of
his love, and hi position, boldly asking
his consent, as her guardian, to his and
Florence's engagement. Thus h re
"Colonel (irainger, will you grant me
a few moment's private conversation,
as I feel I have no right to accept your
hospitality without tirst acquainting
you with (he sentiments I entertain to
wards your lovely niece."
A smile flitted over the ofllcer's hand
some features; but banishiug It he re
"Yon lovo hor, Air. llut hurst?"
"And Florence lovesyou?"
'She does, colonel. But can she have
told you so?'' inquired the young
"She has told me nothing. However,
I read the truth in her eyes when she
introduced you.. I regret ahe has been
"Do not Wame her, colonel. Tlalhor
blame nie who am the elder. Besides,
we neither believed we should have the
happiness to meet again. Our love has
some romance about it, but I feel there
has been little in it to receive your dis
approval. May I tell it you? May I al
so inform you who I am, for as yet I am
"Yes." said the colonel, rising. "We
null go yonder by the gum-trees. Wfj
Blia'ii 'Jt undisturbed." "
In hi8SSCt?tr ueart he was already
taken by the frank, outspoken manli
ness of Philip' Bathurst, Jle remem
bered, however, it was" probably Flor
ence's future at stake, and fair seeming
was not always fair doing. Of course,
as a natural sequence, Flo, a school girl,
would fall in love with a young, hand
some fellow; but who was this fellow?
An adventurer, perhaps.
Who he was Pnilip liatlmrst was not
slow to inform him, and each sentence
he uttered the more won the colonel.
He saw now why Flo had never inclined
toward Herbert Archer, and loved the
girl for her fidelity.
"You know now, Colonel Grainger,
who I nm, also my prospects," conclud
"And the latter, you will own, Mr.
Bathurst," remarked the other dryly,
"are not very brilliant."
"On the contrary," smiled Thilip,
"they are almost below zero. Still, for
stock-in-trade I have hope, youth,
health, and a determination to succeed.
Besides, though that is tlio last thing I
could advance, my uncle may relent."
"Then what do you need of mo?"
"First I wish, colonel, to have noth
ing hidden from you. Secondly, your
consent to my marriage with your niece
when I have acquired a home and an
income worthy of her acceptance."
"Mr. Bathurst," rejoined the colonel,
halting in the path, "you have been
frank with me; I will be the same.
I ought to be, for I owe you gratitude;
but it is not that. I like you. You
have spoken honestly and like a man.
Win the fortune, ana if by advice I can
aid you will. I'll not ask a large one,
and if Flo keeps of the same mind, my
consent is yours. There's my hand up
I'hilip grasped the soldier's palm with
much emotion. Every obstacle, appar
ently, was lading from his path. After
all, how smoothly the course of their
iove promised to fun.
".Now I see the ladies have returned,"
proceeded the colonel, "let us join them.
Von must need refreshment."
That evening, as Flo stood in the ve
randah watching the silver moou rising
over the distant range of hills, Philip
came out'to her.. .
"Oh, I'hilip." she murmured, as he
stood by her side, "you have told Uncle
everything. I am bo, so glad."(
"I could not have accepted his hospi
tality, darling, without doing so." lie
"And he says?"
"That you may be mine, love, direct
ly I have a home U offer you."
"What'B that, I'hilip?"
"I thought I heard a rustle among
the bushes yonder."
The young man went towards them,
but all was still.
"It was nothing, or, at least, only
some night bird, love," he said, return
ing; at the same moment the colonel
called from within:
"Come, come, Flo; the night air is
yet chill. Wo must have no cold
catching. Besides, Mr. Bathurst, we
are early people in the bush."
I'hilip and Florence at once entered.
The windows were closed, and the blinds
Directly it was so, the figure of a man
stole from the bushes, moved swiftly
and cautiously to the gate, and disap
peared among the shadows of the trees.
Half an hour later, I'hilip Bathurst,
entering his bedroom, found Mark
"You here, Mark? I say, old fellow,
we have fallen into comfortable quar
ters, ch?" exclaimed the young fellow.
"There's not a man on earth happier
than I am to-night."
"Then, Mr. l'hil, you've told the colo
nel?" "And got his consent, Mark. I have
but to win a fortuue. to win a bride."
"Win a fortune, Mr. l'hil, and over
come an enemy,"
"An enemy? Why, man, I can have
"A bitter one, if I mistake not. Mr.
Phil. Do you remember, w hen we came
upon Miss Grainger, she had a compan
ion?" "Yes, a friend of thp colonel's."
"And a lover of the niece'B. If I
Iudged him rightly, lie will not easily
irook your coinlug between them."
"Nonsense. Mark! What absurdity!"
"You ought to have seen the look lie
gave you, Mr. l'hil."
"Possibly, Mark. I can imagine the
look I should give in his case. But
looks, old fellow, never killed yet. Why,
how grave you are! Surely' with a
merry laugh, "you don't think my un
fortunate rival will order one out to a
round of fisticuffs, or challenge me to
a duel? Just bocause we nave left
England behind us, Mark, we have not
civilization. Our camping out, I reck
on, htu made you nervous. There, old
fellow, get to bed. I think we both
shall sleep soundly to-night."
Mark Hilton took his leave ashamed
to state his fears further, but his opin
ion was by no means altered.
"Mr. Phil didn't see his look," he re
peated mentally as he turned into bed.
Almost about m hour Herbert
Archer paced the sitting-room of his
station with a scowl as black ns night
uiKn his face. Frequent muttering
escaped his lips. Once he exclaimed,
almost fiercely: "Let him have a care
let him have a care."
Suddenly there was the quick beat of
norscs' hoofs on the road, lie sprang
to. the window, and threw it open. As
the light poured forth, the horse stop
ped, and two minutes after there ad
vanced towards Herbert Archer a man
in the dress of a farm laborer. He was
of middle height, with a heavy, dogged
jaw. and overhanging brows.
"At last, Mat' exclaimed Archer,
impatiently, "Come in."
The man doing so, the other closed
the Window and advanced.
"Well! Who is he?" ho inquired,
"A Mr. Philip Bathurst, come to
Australia with his foster-brother to try
"Yes, yes. What more? Tell me all,
"He seems to be a gentleman, and
has rich connections an uncle, his foster-brother

and it was by chance they met to-day."
"Chance! An agreeable chance,"
said Herbert Archer through his teeth.

"Lovers lovers! That's what it is

Archer, pacing the room excitedly.
"But trust me. Mat, never man and

"Treats him as nn old friend; and,
Mr. Archer, that is all I know."

"Iiight. Well, watch this man, listen

and to-morrow night at eight o'clock

give you further orders if necessary.
You Know the reward; 1 will be liberal.
Now you may go."
When alone Herbert Archer paced
the room awhile in thought. Then as
he ascended to his chamber be mut
tered: "No; one life nor two shall not balk
me, Florence Grainger, from making
you mine. I said I loved you better
than life, and that life I'll sacrifice
rather than see you another's."
MARK'S SCSPICIONS IXC'ltKASE.
In the joyous excitement of meeting
Philip again Florence had almost for
gotten Herbert Archer's proposal, and
the alarm and indignation it had occa
sioned her. She had had neither time
nor opportunity to acquaint either her
aunt or uncle with what had occurred,
and the blow on her temple which
might, by being remarked, have led up
to it, was concealed by her hair.
When, therefore, in her own chamber
she recalled the events if the day, both
her alarm and indignation were modi
fied. How could she feel alarm, with
Philip, now her acknowledged be
trothed, near 16 protect her? And her
own exceeding happiness made her ex
perience pity for the suffering of one
whose fault was loving her too ardently.
Reflecting upon it, Hhe deemed it tho
greatest kindness to her discarded lover
merely to state he had proposed and
been refused, without entering upon
the manner of his proposal, which she
felt, by arousing her uncle's scorn, if
not anger. Would shut the doors of
fcihudy Creek against him for ever. As
to J'lnlip Bathurst, when he rtwok the
next morning, he found it at first rather
difficult to believe that he was really
under tho same roof as Florence; and,
what was more, her accepted lover with
her uncle's consent. There was only,
one obstacle to be overcome before he
made her his wife the getting enough
to keep a wife upon.
"But I don't despair of that," he ex
claimed, as he sprang up. "What men
nave done surely can I, and I'll not let
the grass grow beneath my feet either.
If once I can bag enough nuggets'to
buy a station and stock it, I'll work like
tho shepherd kings of old, and, with the
colonel's experience and advice, will
soon get a sufficiently extensive sheep
run to make my sweet Flo mistress of.
Charles Bathurst's anger against his
nephew had been so extreme that his
disinheritance had been pitiless, and he
had refused him the smallest assistance
to commence bis new life upon.
"(ioand work if you will," be had
exclaimed, "and if your white hands
prove unfit; starve do you understand?
starve. I will not help you."
"If will and energy be present," Thil
ip had rejoined quietly, "the hands,
however white, that can pull an oar or
handle a ritle, can uso a spade or pick,
and .the fortune so gained will be sweet
er than the one obtained by dependence
and the sale of one's liberty."
"I hope you will And it so," was the
"Whether I door no, of course will
not matter to you," went on I'hilip. "I
may perish In the bush, or succumb to
fever at the digging; but be assured of
this. Uncle Bathurst, I will starve and
die before I will ask you for one shilling
to prevent either."
So they had parted. Philip had
packed his portmanteau, and that very
night had slept in his foster-brother s
cottage, and the next morning had com
menced their new life with lust a hun
dred and fifty pounds between them.
The spuit of wisdom and economy at
once had seized. Philip, who had pre
pared the most serviceable of outfits,
and as now he looked in the glass, af tei
expending an extra quarter of an hou
over his toilet, he laughed heartily in
comparing hrs bronzed bearded Belf
with the aristocratic voum? trontleman
who had sauntered away lire at Brigh
ton. "What do I care?" he thought; "this
existence is far more manly; it seems to
give one a better right to live, and I'll
wager It makes no difference in rnv dar
ling's love. HuUol there she is Hitting
among her flowers like a butterfly.
W hat a sluggard she will think me."
And, with a last glance at himself in
the glass, he ran downstairs. There Is,
however, many a slip 'twlxt cup and
ip. and on reaching the verandah Phil
ip found that Flo had disappeared; but
the colonel was them, on the point of
paving a visit to the stock-yard, to
which he persisted in carrying off his
guest, who hud to consent, though he
cast ft wistful glance round for her he
had longed to see.

to gather some largo bronze-hued leaves
with which to surround her flowers, her
dog trotting by her side.
As she stooped to gather them, a low
growl, and then a bark of welcome,
caused her to raise her bead, .and alio
stepped quickly back upon perceiving
Herbert Archer within two paces of her.
"Mr. Archer!" she ejaculated.
"My presence, I perceive, is as dis
tasteful as unwelcome," he said sadly,
almost humbly. "1 know it would be
thus. Yet I could not help but come.
Florence, I have been waiting this op
portunity to speak to you, to crave
your pardon for for my words of
"Indeed. Mr. Archer, they hardly
merit it," she responded coldly.
"1 know it. I know not what pos
sessed nie. I was mad mad with love,"
he ejaculated. "No, no, do not fear; I
no longer urge that; I am aware of my
fate, and accept it. There iu another
more fortunate than I anotttir to whom
1 must give place another, who is to
receive your smiles, your caresses,
while I have but your cold frowns. Oh,
did you but know the wretched night I
have passed," ho proceeded passionate
ly, "from the remembrance of the last
look you gave me, from the knowledge
that I had offended you you whom I so

entreat pardon. Do not refuse."
lie had flung himself at her feet, and
now timidly as it seemed, reverentially
clasped her dress.
Flo was startled, but more so at the
change in him. lie was wan and hag
gard. She could well believe in that
sleepless night, and she did feel pity.
"Mr. Archer," she rejoined, as stead
ily as she could, "you had no right to
address me as you did yesterday,
that for a space you had lost all self
control must bo your excuse. Your
repentance wins my compassion, though

"Oil, Florence!" and he bowed his
head on her dress.
"If, indeed, you wish my pardon, I
give it sincerely."
"You forgive!" he cried, looking up.
"Oh, Florence angell"
"Only," she proceeded, drawing a lit
tlo back, "on condition that you never
address a syllable of love to me again."
"Your will shall be my law," he an
swered, "only do not banish me. We
were friends I hoped to be more; do
not punish my presumption by making
me less. Forget the words I spoke yes
terday." "Most willingly," she responded, with
a sense of relief. "Now. rise, Mr.
Archer; this is no position for yoo."
"One instant," he pleaded. "Tell me
this. Have I to entreat the pardon of
others? your uncle's, your aunt's?
How have they regarded me?"
"At present I have failed to find an
opportunity of acquainting them with
what occurred," she replied.
"They know nothing?" he repeated,
"Noiliing as yet."
"F'lorence I should say Miss Grain
ger, dare I ask for more than pardon
for silence? You cannot appreciate
the humiliation a man experiences who
loves, and is pointed at as rejected.
Y'ou have pitied me I have read that
in your eyes, too pure for concealment;
you have promised to forget; in mercy
to me. and the suffering it would give
me, will you keep the utterance of my
love a secret between us two?"
"Again I answer, most willingly," re
plied Flo, a greater gentleness in her
manner, for she was touched by the
earnestness or his manner, ana tne evi
dent pain ho was undergoing. "Mr.
Archer, if the secret be between us two.
the more easy will it be to forget. Let
us say no more about it: but, if you
will, let us continue tnenns."
With that impulse felt by all gener
ous natures, Flo extended her hand. He
took it, and held it with almost a nerv
"Y'ou are too good for me, far too
good; but you are an angel, I a man,"
he said. "As a sign that the past is
dead, that henceforth we are friends

Before she could reply, he had pressed
his lips on the slender fingers; then he
"You have made me a comparatively
happy man,' Miss Grainger," he re
marked, "i will no longer detain you."
"Will you not come and see uncle?"
she inquired, at a loss what to say.
"Not now, please, not now," he re
joined, with a waving motion of the
Glad to ho free, Flo made a similar
response, and passed him where lie yet
knelt. Before quitting the trees she
looked back. Herbert Archer was
prone on the grass, his hands clutching

On the second night of his being
there, some sharp words had arisen be
tween him and Mat G reeve, which but
for tho stockman's interference would
have elided in blows.
"Keen a civil tongue in your head,
fellow," had remarked the stockman,
angrily. "Remember Jock here is an
old and valued servant, while you are
here only on trial."
"Well, can't the black nigger," growl
ed Mat, "fight his own battles without
yonder new importation doing it for
him?" For Mailc had taken the part
of the aborigine whom the other bad
been goading by bis ridicule. "If he
wants a light on his own account I'm
ready for him;" and he began rolling
up the sleeve from his brawny arm, at
tbesiune time casting an evil glance at
"We'll have no fighting here," put
in the stockman, "and if you are of so
quarrelsome a disposition, Mr. Mat,

With another scowl and mutter, the
man retreated to another part of the
"Whjit a hang-dog ruffian he looks,"
remarked Mark to the stockman.
"Looks what he is, I reckon. Some
ticket-of-leave convict, I suspect, whose
'throat is itching for the halter it merits.

Mark had become interested at that
name, and now asked, carelessly:
"He sent him? One of the servants
he didn't want?"
"No, the day before yesterday he ap
plied for work, and Mr. Archer, who
hadn't any to give him, sends him on
here, knowing master had home fresh

Mark became silent. His presenti
ment made him ready to catch at any
thing that seemed suspicious. And it
did seem suspicious that Herbert Arch
er should have taken such interest in so
villainous a fellow as Mat Greeve, and
to seek a place for him under the colo
"How Mr. Phil would laugh at mo,"
he reflected. "But 1 can't help that;
I'll tell him nothing about it. only I'll
keep a watch on Master Mat."
Indeed, the man had suddenly ac
quired a fascination for him, and fur
tively he kept his eyes on him as be sat
smoking anil chatting with the laborers.
Suddenly he saw him glance swiftly up
at, the clock, then, after looking cau
tiously around, as one desirous to es
cape observation, move near the door.
Here he paused, glanced round again,
and, finding his companion's attention
occupied, quitted the room. Mark
wailed one moment, then, impelled by
a power he could not resist, followed.
As he entered the passage, a cool air
showed that au outer door had been
opened. He knew which, and strode to
it. Pulling it slightly ajar, he beheld
Mat Greeve rapidly, but with an ap
pearance of skulk, making his way over
to the stock-yard, but keeping iu the
Mark paused no longer, not even to
reason upon the wisdom or the follv of
the proceeding, but closing the door,
followed. Where could he be going at
this time of night? And now it occur
red to him that at the self-same hour
he had missed him f rom the room on
the previous evening.
"It's no concern of mine he mitiht
say; but I fancy it is. At least, though
it end in a light, I'll find out,"' thought
Mark, as cautiously he tracked the glid
ing, skulking form of Mat Greeve into
MAT GREEVE HITS HIS MAN.
Mark Hilton, iu the old country, had
been a skilful deer-stalker, which served
hiui somewhat in his present tracking
of Mat Greeve. Using every available
bush as a cover, he followed, keeping
him in sight until they reached a part
where the growth was thick; then, to
his vexation. Mat vanished.
Cautiously Mark tried to discover the
path he had taken, but in vain, nnd af
ter a quarter of an hour he deemed it
wisest to return to tho station. Enter
ing the general room, he had hardly'
been there twenty minutes when he
perceived Mat slip in, and take his
place in a distant corner. Then he
could not have gone very far.
.Mark resolved to keen a better watch
the next evening. When it arrived,
openly complaining of indisposition, he
retired early to bed. or apparently did
so. for directly ho safely could he quit'
ted the station and made for the clump
of bushes, where he had been thrown
off the scent before. Here he lay con

ily he heard some one approaching, and

ceived Mat Greeve.
He passed so near, Mark might have
touched him with his hand. Keeping
him in sight he followed. Again Mat
disappeared, but this time Mark saw
how. He had passed between two
bushes where there seemed no path.
After a pause, Mark, doing the same,
found himself on a ledge some three
feet broad, covered with short coarse
grass. On one side was the dense bush,
on the other a steep ravine, at the foot
of which flowed the river.
The shadows of the bushes fell across
the path, offering security, and Mark,
hearing Mat Greeve's tread ahead, went
The ledge rose by a gradual incline,

trees and underwood.
Into this he was iust in time to see
