THE HISTORY QF AN OPAL RING.
Tonl Aliiliinpttnn appeared in won
derriilly Kood s)iirits; lie lauuliod at Sir
Stephen's jokes, and entered with in
terest into his description of proposed
alterations at the Larches, Riving ad
vice and MiKirestions. When they went
into the pallerv. he took nn opportunity
of drawing lleitlw aside: he had no
ticed that durinur luncheon she had
looked grave, as if something troubled
" Vou are not looking well," lie said.
In his kind manner, as they stood to
gether in the recess of one of the win
dows. "J)o you feel tired? Would you
''Oh, no; I nm not at all t ired, thank
you," said liertha; "hutl have had bail
news. I am grieved to say that the
ring is lost again stolen, as it seems."
iter lips quivered as sue spoke; she
found it ditlicult to keep back tears; she
felt altogether so vexed and disap
pointed. "Lost ngain!" exclaimed Lord Alph
ington in j ; ise. "How is that?"'
Bertha drew her mother's letter from
her pocket. It was written, as were all
Mrs. Ualton's letters, without much se
quence as to the order of events, and
without a single stop from beginning to
end; moreover, it was penned in an
illegible pointed hand, and any cireiuii
stance she had to relate called forth re
flections of which no one else could see
the relevancy. In order therefore to
give Lord Al'phington a clear notion of
what had occurred, as far as she could
understand it herself, Bertha had to
pick out bits of her mother's letter here
and there and put them together.
It seemed that, on the very morning
Bertha had sent the telegram to request
that the ring should be forwarded, an
elderly widow lady had called on Mrs.
lalton lo inquire about the character
of a servant. It appeared so Bertha
made out that her mother and the
strange lady had gone on talking, and
that their conversation had turned up
on rings. At any rate, Mrs. Dalton
told her visitor of Bertha's adventure,
and showed her the opal ring, taking it
out of its case for that purpose. The
lady admired it, and commented upon
it, and then gave it back to Mrs. Dal
ton, who restored it to its case of this
she was quite certain. When Bertha's
telegram arrived, she went to the ring
case to take the ring out, but it was
gone. She had searched everywhere
for it, but in vain.
It was impossible it could have been
stolen, Mrs. Dalton wrote, because she
had never left the room; she had never
even turned her back, except for a mo
ment, when she went to a side-table to
write an address. Besides, the stranger
was quite a well-dressed, lady-like
woman that it was quite out of the
question to suspect her of having taken
it, even if she could have had the op
portunity. Mrs. Dalton expressed
much regret, but of course she was not
to blame when had sho ever been
otherwise than a model of wisdom and
self-sacrificing goodness, in her own
"And now what is to be done?" cried
Bertha, with a little sob. "Oh, I am

the loss of the rim:." she said. "It is a
provoking circumstance; but don't let
her take it too much to heart," she add
ed, turning to Lord Alphington.
"Pray don't do that, my dear young
lady," he requested; "there is no need.
I don't pretend to say that the loss of
the relic is not a disappointment to me,
but it is of less consequence than it
might have been. I have no doubt
whatever that the person who called
upon Mrs. Dalton stole it," he con
tinud. turning to Lady Langlev; "and

Bertha, while he addressed the elder
"You have not seen your grandson, I
suppose?" inquired Lady Langlev.
"No; but I nope and trust 1 shall find
him a true Faneourt. Ho was for some
years at Vale College in America, and

that looks well," said Lord Alphington.
"Kxceedinglv so. I shall be quite

her news bad caused less regret than
she had expected.

( ll.M'TER IX.
It was on the afternoon of the day
when Ladv Langlev. seated on a heap
of shawls beneath Hie ruined keep, re
lated a portion of Lord Alphiiigton's
history that Mrs. Lemont, in restless
mood." paced to and fro in the drawing
room in Wesibotirno Grove.
She appeared troubled and uneasy.
Kvery now and then she stopped in her
impatient walk to look from the win
dow. To every sound that came from
below she listened intently.
About the room were signs of ip
proadiing departure. A large box con
taining manv of the articles of luxury
which Bertha had noticed when she
called stood open ou the lloor. Mrs.
Lemont seemed to have been just en
gaged in packing it. Through the half
open folding-doors otlier boxes were
visible, some already corded. The lit
tle white poodle had been left as a lega
cy to the people in the china-shop.
Mrs. Lemont was not really fond of au-imals-the
dog had been only a tempo
rary caprice. The cage of Java spar
rows stood outside the door, covered
with green baize, ready to travel under
the charge of the maid-servant, togeth
er with a collection of parcels, bags,
ami band-boxes, enough for halt a doz
en people to look after.
The clock on the chimney-piece rang
out five; then another quarter chimed,
and still Mis. Lemont continued her
"Whvdoeshe not come?" she mur
mured.'half aloud, as if, oppressed by a
sense of loneliness, she was impelled to
address the inanimate objects around
her. "He said he would be here this
afternoon, lie told me to bo ready to
go away with him, and I am ready. '
She pressed her open palms to her
temples, and then to her heart, sighing
"I know he no longer cares for me
that he would rather I was out of his
way," she continued to herself. "And
I? Is it possible that I love him still,
after all these years of oppression,
neglect, and misi'iy? I scarcely know
whether I love or Late him. He may
trv me too far."
She stood for awhile leaning against
tho frame of ono of the windows, gaz
ing into tho busy street below. Omni
buses, cabs, carts, rattled past without
ceasing; a continual stream of foot
passengers hustled each other along the
pavement; customers went in and out
of the opposite shops. Without, all
was life and animation; within, isola
tion and a dreary void.
At last a double-knock was heard at
tho street-door. Mrs. Lemont started
as if her ears had not been strained to
catch the sound. She went to a side
table on which stood a decanter and
glasses, and, pouring out a glass of
wine, hastily swallowed it; and then
she threw herself into an easy-chair as
she heard steps quickly ascending the
fitft i T9
The door opened and a young man
entered, closing the door again behind
him with a slam. Mrs. Lemont rose to
meet him, but without any appearance
of the impatienco she had previously
"You are late," she said. "I nave
been expect ing you for some time."
He met her with a kiss one that
might bo called a matter-of-course
kiss, for it was given and received as
Mrs. Lemont returned to her seat,
and her visitor drew a chair up to the
' "I told you I would come. I didn't
tell you at what time, because I didn't
know myself," was his reply to her ob
servation. . . . .
He was a man of about six-and-twenty
years of age, rather tall and
broad-shouldered, but loosely knit
about the knees. His complexion had
a Bodden look, with a redness about tho
noso and eyelids which seemed to bo
the result of dissipation; his hair was
sandy, inclining to red; he wore neither
moustache nor beard, but long whis
kers. His features were not badly
formed nature had intended him to bo
good-looking rather than otherwise- but
the sullen brow, the sensual expression
of the full lips, the dimmed and blood
shot eyes that had a look both bold and
sinister, completely reversed nature's
intentions on his account.
"Have you nothing to tell me, Sed
ley?" Mrs. Lemont asked. "Have you
been to Thompson & I'ratchit's? Are
the proofs all right?''
"Of course I have been to Thompson
& I'ratehits," replied Sedley. "They
required some little time to uro over the
papers, but they've promised me an an
swer this evening. 1 know the contents
of the box are all right except that con
founded rin x, -and so do yon. When
that precious brother of yours stole the
ring, I only wish he had swallowed it,
and it bad Choked him."
"And yet you have found Pierre use
ful to you at times," said Mrs. Lemont
"And the proof doesn't depend upon
"Xo, it doesn't depend upon it; but
I'll have the ring if I can. (iive me the
address of that girl you say called here
about something tluit Pierre lost in an
omnibus. It may be that very ring
Mrs. Lemont went to her desk and
brought out Bertha Dalton's card. A
singular smile passed over her face as
she gave it to her companion.
Sedlev looked at it and placed it in
"I shall call there as soon as I can
call as Mr. Faneourt." he said.
"If I had known at the time that a
ring was missing, I should not have
owned to Pierre's visit," observed Mrs.
"No, I suppose that you are not quite
such a fool as that," returned her com
panion roughly. "And now are you
ready to leave Tiere?"
"Yes, lam sure I have no wish to
stay I'm sick of the place," the lady
"And yet you've had your fling, I
think, with your infernal extravagance.
I hope you have no debts, or it will be
the worse for you," said Sedley, in the
same harsh toiie.
"Xo. I have no debts," Mrs. Lemont
replied, with compressed lips and
heightened color, as if striving to con
trol her rising anger.
"That is well so far," Sedley remark
ed. "Pray who is the last victim?" be
asked, with a sneer, as he took up and
laid down several little articles of bijou
terie on the table.
"I might ask the same question of
you, replied Mrs. Lemont, her eyes
Hashing. "But what is the use of "re
criminations? I have promised to do
what you require of me that is suf
ficient!" "Has any one been here to-day?"
Sedley asked, with an air of suspicion.
"I told Perkins to admit no one but
you." said Mrs. Lemont. "What an
idiot that Perkins is! Only I think he's
tolerably trustworthy, as things go. Ah
me, is there one honest person in this
heartless world. I wonder?"
Sedley's lips curled.
"I suppose people are honest or not,
just as it belt serves their turn," be
"That is your maxim. I know, mv
friend," Mrs. Lemont remarked, with a
Bi'.imif ul laugh, -mid therefore you can
not be surprised if I do not al'toaether
trust you. How long is my banishment
"How ran I tell?" he demanded.
"Let me get into my saddle lirst."
Julio Lemont fixed her bright black
eyes upon him, as though she would
look him through, He winced under
"You would trick me if you could,
but have care." she said. 'Ilemember,
I have you in my power."
Sedley turned "a shade paler.
"If any revelations as to the past
would a'ffect me. they would equally
allei't you, ma lieWv be said, in a voice
not mute steady. "But what's the use
of talking in that way. Julie.''' he con
tinued. "Only let me be secure let
me get on the blind side of the old man
an 1 then you will see. What has put
it into your'head that I want to deceive
"Don't I know you?" cried Julie,
with her eyes still fixed upon his face.
Ayain Sedley winced.
"Vou are not talking like a reasona
ble woman, Julie," he observed. "Vou
professed to see as clearly as I did how
important it is that I shoold not dam
age my prospects, that I should get. to
stand "well with the Karl, and that I
shouldn't just at lirst bring forward old
connections. All this jou agreed to.
You also agreod to go to any place I
might take for you, for three months
perhaps, passing there as the widow of
a relative. You can't deny this?"
"I don't wish to deny it," Julie re
turned. "I am quite ready to fulfil my
part of the bargain. Lord Alphington
is old and infirm, vou say, and cannot
live long you will soon be vour own
master. I can wait; it would not be
for my interest that you should damage
your prospects. I am no child to seize
a bauble before I ani assured of its
worth. Only, remember, if you are
Karl. I will be Countess of Alphington,
or I shall know how to take my own
measures. Don't yon think f could
carry a coronet we'll?"' She lifted her
head as she spoke, as if she already felt
the weight of it on her brow.
"I think you have talent enough to
carry anything well, and beauty enough
too, ' Sedley replied, in a cajoling tone.
"I have taken a nice li tie iiest for you
down in Surrey; only keep quiet there
for a while, and all will come right. By
Jove," be went on, ns if anxious to
change the conversation. "Alnhington

"I know," si e said, "I too have been
to have a look nt it."
"You!" Set. ley exclaimed, in surprise.
"Yes, I have ways of hearing and
knowing more than vou think perhaps."
returned Julie, wiih what might bo
called a malicious smile, as she observed
her companion's look of annoyance. "I
went down there one day, and, hearing
in the neighborhood that a housekeeper
was wanted at the Hall, I offered my
self for the pot; so you see 1 had a
glimpse of the interior as well as ex
teriorand it is a splendid place, as you
Sedley muttered an oath.
"Oh. you medn't be under any
alarm!" said Mm.' Lemont. "Xo one
could possiblv have recognized Julie
-Lemont in the grav-haired, elderlv
woman in a not too fashionable dress of
sober brown and a close bonnet. Of
course nothing came of it I didn't in
tend there should."
feedley brought his hand down on the
table with an oath.
"This is sheer foolery," he said.
"You'll be playing these infernal tricks
one too ofterj." . . .
"And if any harm should come to me,
you'd be sorry, wouldn't you?" interro
gated Julie, derisively.
Sedley scowled and bit his lip. He
was beginning to bn half nfraid of this
woman. Be had believed he could turn
her round his finger, as he expressed it,
by her love for bun. but the unpleasant
doubt began to intrude as to whether
her love might last through go many
trials. Ho had no more faith in con
stancy than he had iu honesty, and he
was perfectly well aware that, if Julie
Lemont was passionate in her love,
she could be fierce in hate and revenge.
He began to urge her to prepare for
depart ipv, ami she. nothing loth to
leave a place of which she had become
utterly weary, proceeded to busy herself
in collecting together the few articles
that remained yet to be packed.
She was satisfied with the situation
that Sedley had chosen for her; she had
stipulated not to bo too far from Im
don. She did not intend to lose sight of
him, but rather to keep a watchful eye
upon his movements.
He, as he sat with his elbow on the
table, and his head on his hand, as she
moved to and fro, began to have a no
tion that it might become necessary to
get rid of this woman if not by 'fair
means, then by foul. He was going to
begin a new career, and those who
knew too much of bis antecedents
would be belter out of the way. There
was the constant drain upon him for
money, too. He anathematized his fate
that had imposed such an incumbrance
upon him: but the mode of freeing him
self from it loomed only vaguely in the
distance. He determined upon nothing;
it would ail depend upon Julie. For
the present, nt any rate, she would be
safe hound by her promise and in the
future some lucky chance might turn
iii. and do for him what he had no wish
to do for hinisi'lt.
Thus his meditations ran, while Perk
ins, summoned by his mistress, set a
tray with some sandwiches and wine on
the table, and then, by Sedley 's orders,
went for two cabs to convey themselves,
the sen ants and luggage to the railway-station.

drifting over the sky took a tinge of
crimson, and as (-t there was no sign
of the travelers." Mrs. Dalton looked
at her watch for the twentieth time,
and then she rang the bell.
"Sarah, what time is it by the kitch
en clock?" she aked. "I am sure my
watch is slow. Do you think any acci
dent can have happened?"
"La. mum. no." replied Sarah. "It
wants a quarter of an hour of the time
for the young ladies to come et."
"Dear me. does it?" Mrs. Dalton ques
tioned. "Vou are sure Martha went in
good time to niect them at t he station?"
"She's been gone' this half-hour, 'urn,"
"Very well. Keep the kettle boiling;
I dare say they will like coffee when
they come in.' "
Another short time nf waiting, and
then the vociferous delight of Pinch,
the house-dog, announced the arrival
of the travelers at the door. With great
demonstrations of joy Mrs. Dalton ran
out to receive, her daughters. She
scarcely allowed the girls time to put
off their tiaveling wraps before she as
sailed them wiih innumerable ques
tions. How had they enjoyed them
selves? Whom had they seen? Wliat
had they done? What was Sir Steph
en's new place like? What sort of
neighbors had he? Had they met Lord
Alphington? Ami so on.
"Is this all you have to tell me?" she
inquired in a significant tone of Lena,
when the girls had done their best to
answer her interrogatories.
"Ves, mamma, all." Lena replied
with a slight (lush, as she sunk down
in a low chair with her back to the
Mr3. Dalton looked disappointed.
"I think Lady Langlev might have
thought (if asking someone whom it
would have been worth your while to
meet,"' she said in an injured tone.
"Oh. mamma. Lady Langley was
kindness itsell!" Bertha exclaimed.
"It was all very well for vou. Bertha,"
said Lena. "Sir Stephen and Lady
Langley always made a pet of you and
now Lord Alphington seems inclined
to do the same."'
"Loid Alphington! You made his
acquaintance then?" interrogated Mrs.
"Bertha did," Lena replied. "He had
neither eyes nor ears for me."
"Whatever notice he took of me was
owing to the ring," Bertha explained,
"lie only gave me this because he sup
posed he was going to take the other
from me." As she spoke, she held up
her linger to show her mother the pearl
"It is pretty enough." said Mrs. Dal
ton, "but he might have given you
something of more value, I think."
"Oh, mamma. I shouldn't at all have
liked it, if he bad offered me something
of equivalent value: I thought it
showed so much delicacy on his part to
give me this merely as a token," ob
"You see Bertha will never make her
fortune," said Lena, laughing a little
scornfully. "There is on-; piece of
news I must tell you. mamma," she
continued, as Mrs. Dalton poured out
the coffee that had juM. been brought
in; "On the very dav that we luuchedat
Alphington Park, Lord Alphington re
ceived a letter from his solicitor to say
that the young man who claimed to be
his grandson Mr. Fancourt's son, you
know had biought forward his proof's,
and that they were all in order. Hois
the undoubted heir. Sir Stephen and
Lady Langley have invited us all to
visit them iu the autumn, so we shall be
sitre to meet this Mr. Faneourt."
Mrs. Dalton nodded her head with a
smile of satisfaction, though her coun
tenance clouded over as she said:
"lonly hope, he may have no entan
glements; there's no saying whether he
may not be already a married man."
"I don't think it at all likely." Lena
returned. "He has been traveling about
for some years, anil there was no men
tion made of a w ife.''
