rather too heavily upon her; hut this
proposal was met by such a storm of
angry reproaches that she never again
attempted any expostulation, but pa
tiently accepted her lot as it had been
laid out for her.
"Lena must many well, and her beau
ty must not be endangered bv exposure
to sun and rain." Mrs. Dalto'n declared;
"while, when her mother's pension
ceased, am! her income from other
sources came to be divided, IJertha
would not lind she had any too much,
and it was letter she should accustom
herself to work for her own livelihood."
IJertha made no demur to the last
part of the argument, but still she
iailed to see why the difference between
iiia and herself should be taken so
completely for granted, or how some
employment of Lena's time would in
terfere with tho great object upon

It was this that llertha felt the hard
est to bear. Hie could not contemplate
these matrimonial .speculations without
a wound to that womanly pride and
sensitive delicacy to which the teach
ings of her excellent father had added
depth and strength, lake other young
girls, llertha had her own vision of a
future; but, if she thought of marriage,
it was as a holy state, not to be enteral
into excejiting from the strongest and
truest love. Shu would sooner have
toiled on to the end of her days than
have made a eoniinotliiv of 'herself
waiting for the highest bidder. IJertha
had learned to keep silence, however,
to avoid wrangling, only now and then

Kir Stephen Langley, while holding a

up a warm interest in the tainil'v. Tho

and had retired from public ijf() to en

The Lurches, though n handsome

extensive grounds, needed man v altera

Stephen's idea or comfort, but ho had
been principally led to the purchase by
its proximity loAlphington Park. Tho

liei'tha experienced no annoyance at

node to escape comment or criticism,
die was content.
There had been a discussion about

lnueil to wear since she had failed to
hid the owner.
"You had much better not take that

Mrs. Lalton. "You will only be losing
"I don't think so, mamma," returned
ilertha, looking at it us it glowed on her
"1 do believo that IJertha is supersti

"Not exactly supertitious," objected
Bertha, smiling, "though I can't help
A'eaving fancies about 'it sometimes.
"At all events you had much better
not take it with yon," said Mrs. Dalton.
'There will be uo chance of llndiug

"Very well, mamma. "agreed IJertha.
,vho never was obstinate about trilles.
So on the morning of their journey she
reluctantly drew off the ring, and' put-

placed it in lier mother's hand.
" Take care of it. mamma," she said.
"Of course I shall take care of it."
Mrs. Dalton returned. "Don't be silly,

cried. "Vou have begun vour own

'There-now hurry. Lena." IJertha
slid, as the gong sounded for the lirst

When they entered the drawing
room they found the party consisted of
the lioeior of the paiish inM a young
midshipman, a iov of Sir Stephen's,
who was introduced' us Frank llolcroft.
"What a stupid set?" Lena whispered
to her sister, as they awaited the sum
mons to dinner.
During dinner llertha completely
won i ne young sailor s heart by listen

sea-life. The- Hector's conversation

please her old friend. Sir Stephen. Her
voice was a sweet mezzo-soprano, not
very jiowerful, but she sung with taste
Lena w ould not sing; sho was tired,
she said. She sat dow n to a gamo or
chess with the Hector, but scarcely
cared to conceal that she found it dull.
"If this is to be the usual round, I
shall be sorry we came," said Lena,
when she and HerUi i went to their
rooms at night. Two pleasant rooms
tin y were, with w indows looking on to
the garden behind, and a door com
municating. This thev left open.
"Oh. Lena, I think 'it's delightful!"
said llertha. "lint I'll tell vou some
thing. Lord Alphington ami a lot of
people are coining to dine on Tuesday,
and then oii will have an onnortuiiiiv

"No. you mustn't do that. I can't

she shook down her hair.
"Ibnv you could think of singing
that ridiculous old song passes my un
derstanding." said Lena.
"Sir Stephen asked for it. and it was
a favorite of papa's." explained IJertha.
She hummed softly to herself as she
continued her preparations for the
night. She felt happier than she could
quite account for to herself, notwith
standing the meeting with kind old
friends, and the prospect of nearly a
week of freedom in the country.
It was the custom in the village to
ring the church bells for half an hour
at eight o'clock on Sunday morning, to
call the good people fioiii their bids,
As llertha threw open her window the
sound of the chimes, softened by dis
tance, and rising and falling on the
breeze, fell pleasantly on her ear. ller
tha was already dressed. She leaned
from the window a little while, enjoy
ing the morning air; and then she
"(Jet up Lena; make haste," she said.
"It is such a lovely dav."
"I wonder whether there will be any
thing worth getting up for." remarked
Lena, with a vawn. "Don't go away,
llertha; I shall never be ready unless
you help me."
llertha good-naturedly remained,
though she would gladly have gone into
the garden, and the two'si-ters descend
ed to the breakfast-room together in
time for family prayers.
The party "walked to church. Sir
Stephen never allowed the carriage to
be taken out on a Sunday, except in
case of absolute necessity.' The short
est way led through a wood, forming
part of Alphington Park, where a foot
path ran. communicating with the high
road on either side by a stile. In going,
Sir Stephen drew-IJortha's arm within
his. and walked oil with her, the others
"I want to speak to you, little ller
tha." he said. "1 want'yo'.i to tell me,
frankly, and openly, what you are do

triend their mode of life at home.

"Hippy! Oh. yes, lam sore I could
be happy'!" llertha replied. How good
ymi and Lady Langley are to think of
me in that wiiy! Tnank you a thousand
times, but 1 could not leave mamma
an I Lena."
"I don't quite se the force of that

gills lilHst colue d.iwu in the autumn
for a long visit, and then we'll talk it
ever, Not another word now," he add
ed, as llertha was about to speak: and
indeed there was no time for further
discussion, as thev had already reached
the chui-ehvard g.iie.
'1 he mad they had come out upon, af
ter crossing ue siile from tie- wood,
was little more than a lane, bordered ou
one side by the uai k tence, und on thu
other by 'a high hedge and a row of
elms. Prom nmiibt the foliage there
peeped here and there the ehuutteys ef
a snag f;, nn-house. or the tiled roof of
a eott;lire. The lane had been made to
cut olt the summit of a hill, and the
church stood upon an eminence, reach
ed by weather-worn steps. An ancient
jew shaded the ivy-coverod porch of
gray rubble, and from this elevation a
long stretch of corn, fallow, and pasture
fields spread it si If out before the eve,
with intersecting hedgerows, diversity
being given by occasional cherry -orchards,
now bursting into bloom, and
plantations of young ash-trees, from
which, at stated limes, the poles were
cut that supported the Imps, now bare
ly showing their first green leaves.
This pleasant prospect was animated
by groups of country people, in their
"Sunday best," trooping toward tho
church. The Sahhaih stillness was
broken only by the subdued murmur of
voices, the chimes that rang out from
tint tower, ami the cawing of Ihe rooks
in the old churchyard elms.
llertha sighed 'as she thought how
delightful it would he to live amid
scenes like this; hut she checked the
longing. "I must not wish for it-it
would not be right." she said to herself.
Aslhcy entered the churchyard gnto
a gent Ionian, who had b'-cu speaking to
one of the fanners, turned and shook
hands Willi Sir Stephen, and then lifted
his hat lo llertha. lie was of rather
above the middle height, hut had a
slight sloop, more, as it would appear,
from a habit of Ihouuhtfuliiess than
from any inllrinily of age. His fea
tures were ainioht feminine in theirdel-
icacy,lutcruicilgi.iucd fioiii cffcnii-
nacy by the broad brow ami wclbdo
tlued chin. Mis scanty hair was as
w hite as snow, but his luuusiacho yet
retained u tinge of brown, while nis
penetrating grav eves had lost little of
their youthful lire.'
Sir Stephen and lie walked up to the
porch side by side; llertha fell back and
joined Lady Langley, who Just then
reached the gate.
"That is Luid Alpliinrtoii."Hald Lady
Langley. "He always walks through
the park to church, lie is r.s simple in
his manners as any mere country squire
more so than most."
On their ret urn Lord Alphington
walked through the wood with Sir
Stephen and Lady Langley; the girls
lingered at some 'distance behind, ac
companied by young llolcroft.
The sun shone brightly, lighting up
the brilliant trrecn of the'vouiiir shoots.
Here and there primroses and wood

"How lovely this wood will he a

Lena sauntered on a little in advance,
her gaze directed toward Un. mansion,
occasional glimpses of which were
caught, between tho trees to the left,
where the wood was not very thick.
Suddenly a man sprung out of the
bushes in front of them. He stopped
in some hesitation when ho loiind him
self face to face with the voung ladies
and their companion; but lie raised his
hat. apologiiii f fur having startled
them, and, crossing the path, plunged
again amongst the trees nn the other
"What a ilisagieable-lni.klng man!"
said I'.crtha. "Does lie belong to the
village. 1 wonder"."
"lie's nut a go; i licit tan. should think,
from bis appearance." observed Lena;
"perhaps he's a poacher.''
"He doesn't look nhmky enough for
that." remarked llolcroft'. "Oh, Miss
Dalion. 1 mils; tell you of such a jolly

Aiid I do led think the various gems
could have been set at random."
"It is very curious." said Lu'd Alph
ington. During the remainder of the time
they sat at table he appeared somewhat
iibscnt in mind, and spoke but little,
except when personally addressed.
After the gentlemen had joined tho
ladies in the diawiug-ronm. Lord Alph

"Yours. Lord Alphington! Oh. I am

Lord Alphington asked, in some anxie
"An exceedingly unpleasant, disreputable-looking
person. ' llertha replied.
"Heaven forbid that be should be the
man who has put in a claim to be ac

Lord Alphington. with a look of pain.
"There is no danger of that. 1 hope,"
IJertha returned. "The person we are
speaking of is too old -about forty I
"Ah, that is a relief at any rate!" said
Lord Alphington. "My grandson, if
he really proves himself to be so, can
not be above six-and-twenty. It is just
cight-and-twenty vears siiice my un
fortunate son left Lngland. 'Lady
Alphington wore that ring as a keeper
according to the tradition of our family
for many generations. The last time
she ever "saw our younger son she drew
it from her linger and placed it on his,
pledging him by this act to live worthi

strange how it could have got into other
hands; he would sooner have parted
with his life than have given it away
of that I feel convinced."
llertha listened with deep interest.
"The ring must be indeed valuable to
you," she said. "I will send for it at

Lord Alphington observed. "There is
another part of your story that strikes

than she chose to confess',"
