CAIRO BULLETIN: SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 11, 1883.
No small matter would have kept
Lord Alphington at homo when he had
appointed to meet his newly-found
jfrandson. but he was subject to severe
jttacks of gout, which he could onlv
ward off by attention to first symp
toms. He was a spare man of temper
ate habits, but he had inherited this
complaint probably from some indolent
and self-indulgent ancestor. On tho
day before he intended to go to town,
he felt a premonitory twinge that ex
perience told him must not be neglect
ed, so his journey was postponed till
Monday, by which time he hoped to
be- able to put his foot to the ground
Lord Alphington arrived at his town
house in Magnus Square by one o'clock
on Monday morning, and found Mr.
Thompson, the solicitor, waiting hr
him as appointed, i'ancourt was to be
there an liour later.
"IiOrd Alphington shook Mr. Thomp
son cordially by the hand.
"You congratulate me, I am sure, my
good friend." he said. " You know what
I have gone through, what my lonely
life has been to me, and now Heaven
has been good to me in allowing me to
embrace a son in my old age."
Mr. Thompson cleared his throat, and
looked as if he did not quite know what
"Of course, I congratulate you, my
lord," he said. "Mr. Sedley. or Mr.
I'ancourt, as we must now call him, is
still a young man. There is no doubt
he will acquire the habits and manners
of the class with which he will for the
future associate. We must allow for
Something in the solicitor's tone
made Iird Alphington uneasy.
"Defective education," he repeated.
"I understood that the voung man had
been educated at Yale College, and that
he had traveled much since. He is
surely a gentleman?''
Mr. Thompson coughed behind his
"I believe he was at college, and,
when I speak of defective education, I
don't mean that he is exactly ignorant.
He writes a good letter; but what you
term traveling, mv lord. I should prefer
to call knocking ahout the world."
"You alarm me," said Lord Alphing
ton; "I am sure by your manner you
know something against this young
man. Speak out, pray; however much
it may distress me, it is better that I
"Indeed, my lord, you take my words
more seriously than they were intend
ed," Mr. Thompson replied. "I know
nothing whatever against .Mr. Fan
court; perhaps, remembering what his
father was, I felt disappointed. That
is all, I assure you."
"He is not like his father then?" Lord
Alphington inteiTogated, glancing with
a sigh at the portrait of a handsome,
attractive-looking young man, which
hung in the library where they were
'Wot in the least; perhaps he takes
after his mother's family," Mr. Thomp
Lord Alphington sighed again.
"We must not let any disappointment
as to his appearance bias our judg
ment," said lie. "I hoped there might
have been a resemblance, but I have
learned to put my hopes on one side.
Let us proceed to business time is
Mr. Thompson proceed to lay before
Lord Alphington the proofs that had
been placed in his hands. There was
a considerable bundle of papers, all of
which the Earl looked over carefully.
"It seems quite beyond a doubt that
all is as we wish." he said, but in a less
cheerful tone than that in which he
had first spoken when he met the solic
itor. "How I wish all this had been
known years ago. that I might have
had the guardianship of the boy! How
everit is useless to regret the past. That
opal ring is the only thing missing," lie
added, taking up a locket and examin
ing it. "Did I'ancourt explain its loss?"
"He spoke of having been robbed hv
a servant," Mr. Thompson replied. "I
have placed that affair in the hands of
a detective, as you directed a verv
acute fellow, who has been engage 1 in
more than one case that has come under
my notice. If any man can follow it up,
Lord Alphington was about to reply.
when the door of the room was thrown
open and Mr. Kancourt announced.
Lord Alphington rose quickly, a look
of painful anxiety upon his counte
nance, lie was about to advance to
meet the man who entered, but stopped
short, the eagerness of his manner
changing to extreme hauteur.
Fancourt, in appearance much the
same as when he had called at Ivy Cot
tage, came forward with an air half
cringing, half presuming. Mr. Thomp
sonthinking that the Earl was in some
uncertainty, also rose.
"Allow me to present to you your
grandson. Lord Alphington," he said.
Lord Alphington waved him back.
"I know," he returned. "You have
proved to me that this is Fancourt's
son; as such he will receive every jus
tice at my hands. Sit down, young
man." he added, addressing Fancourt
for the first time as he resumed his own
Fancourt felt cowed and uncomfort
able, but. endeavoring to assume a
nonchalant air, he waited for Lord
Alphington to speak.
"When I wrote to you to make tho
appointment for vou to meet me here
to-day, I took Mr. Thompson's word
for the correctness of the proofs," said
Lord Alphington, in a chilling tone. "I
have since looked over them myself
and I find them to be as he has stated.
There are a few questions, however,
that I wish to ask you."
"Vou have no recollection of your
father, I presume," said the Earl.
"None whatever, my lord," Fancourt
replied; "he died when I was almostan
"I do not know if you are aware that,
after my son's death some report
reached me he had married and left a
widow and son. I made inquiries, but
could find no trace. Can you account
"Mr. Fancourt did not retain his own
name in America; he married soon af
ter his arrival and assumed his wife's
name Sedley. Vou see by the register
my name is put down as Sedley. After
his death his w ife left the place where
they had been living, and returned to
her own relations in the north."
"Vou are speaking of your father
and mother, I suppose," said Lord
"Certainly, yes, my lord," Fancourt
replied, with a shade of embarrassment.
J-ord Alphington put several other
questions, still maintaining so distant
almost severe a manner, as to make
Mr. Thompson sorry for the young

awaited his client, but perhaps had
scarcely been prepared for its extent.
hen he Had met this man as Sedlev.
in his ordinary dress and with his natu
ral manner, he hail been unfavorably
impressed, but his utter unfitness for
his new position had not struck him so
forcibly then as it did now, and he felt
sorry for him as well as the Karl. It
was an unfortunate business altogether
and Mr. Thompson began to wish he
could have found some flaw in the
proof. Independently of his respect for
him, he personally liked Lord Alphing
ton; he had always been treated by
him with courtesy and consideration.
This stern and haughty bearing was
new to him. and revealed at once to the
clear-sighted lawyer how great wits the
distaste the Earl had conceived for his
grandson's appearance a distaste, lie
feared, as he watched Fancourt's coun
tenance and manner, which time was
not likely to lessen.
Fancourt also perceived that he had
not made a good impression; and at
first this somewhat daunted him, and
threw him out of his calculations, lie
on his side was disappointed. He knew
that Lord Alphington was an old man,
and he had come prepared to find him
infirm, weak in mind, and a driveler, as
he had expressed it to himself, whom
he could easily manage. This noble
looking man with keen eyes and clear
intellect he had not beeii prepared to
meet; and it took him some time to
rally, to regain his usual audacity. In
the end he consoled himself by the re
flection that it would he all the pleas
anter for him if Lord Alphington did
not care to have much of his company.
He would be obliged to make him a
handsome allowance, and this he could
spend with much more satisfaction to
himself when removed from all restraint
In the meantime Lord Alphington
was undergoing a menial struggle. He
was a strictly just man. He began to
argue with 'himself that he had no
right to visit his disappointment upon
the heal of his grandson, or to reluae
to hold out his hand because he differe
so widely f; nil what he had wished an
hoped he might be. lie determined as
far as possible to endeavor to overcome
the feelings of distrust and repugnance
with whi.di the man had at once in
spired him, and at any rate to give him
a fair trial before passing judgment.
lie softened his tone, therefore, when
Fancourt. having answered his ques
tions, seerned to await his further
"You had better dine with me this
evening, and we will then discuss fu
ture plans more fully." he said. "Apart
ments will he placed at your disposal
in this house, and all suitable arrange
ments will he made. I reside at Alph
ington Park almost entirely, so we shall
not interfeii) with each other."
Fancourt began a profusion of thanks,
but the Earl stopped him.
"The son of my son. and the heir to
my title will receive what is his due."
he said. "When we know each other
better, personal regard may follow.
Much depends upon yourself."
He rose as a sign that the interview
was over. Fancourt, taking the hint,
prepared to withdraw. The Earl mere
ly bowed, without holding out his hand,
and Fancourt, after an answering bow,
retired with a feeling of relief. With a
deep sigh Lord Alphington threw him
selt into his chair again.
"Good Heavens." he exclaimed, "is it
within the hounds of possibility that
that vulgar upstart can be Fancourt's

said Mr. Thompson, deprecatingly.

that this man has "done something, or

'young' to him, for his appearance tells
one that he is already old in vice and
"Surely, my lord, we are judging
hastily." Mr. Thompson remarked,
seeking after some consolation. "Grant
ed that Mr. Fancourt has sown his crop
of wild oats, he may reform."
"Wild oats!" exclaimed the Earl bit
terly. "Say rather tares and thistles,
or I am no judge of physiognomy,"
He remained silent for a while, and
Mr. Thompson, observing his look of
abstraction, took up his hat.
"You have no further commands for
me. I think, my lord," he said.
"At present none, thanks, Thomp
son." responded Lord Alphington.
rousing himself. "After this evening I
will communicate with you, if there is
anv further need.
They shook hands. Mr. Thompson,
passing through the square, hailed a
cab. and drove oil to Westminster;
while Lord Alphington remained in his
library, buried in thought of no very

very endeavors to unravel the web bv
winch ho was entangled, set his blood
in a ferment, and the suspense lie had
to undergo was terrible to him. He
would have liked to meet face to face
the man who had injured him. He
would have liked to bring back those
old times when he could have challenged
his enemy to ordeal by arms, confident
that truth would bear down falsehood
in the fight. "Will the slow process of
legal inquiry be as sure?" he sometimes
asked himself. And now he had bound
himself by a promise lie could stir
neither haul rmr loot in his own de
fense. He almost repented having giv
en such a promise. But he was not the
man to recall his word when once it
was pledged. He must resign himself
to wait and enduic, trusting that Prov

to feel it rather dull. It was a rare cir

two young men appeared at a fortunate
moment. "Tie. y are quite distinguished-looking,

The young men, perceiving that their

in finding subjects of conversation.
Critical remaiks upon those around

though Bertha's comments were never
ill-natured, she was as ready to enter
into the humors of the scene as he him
self. Lena became animated in discuss
ing the prospects of the season, and in
observing the admiration she excited in
the young landscape-painter.
When they felt inclined for a stroll,
St. Lawrence walked through the con
servatory between Mrs. Dalton and
Lena, vkliile Douglas followed with Ber
tha, and, when the ladies found it time
to leave the gardens, in the same order
they sauntered down the principal walk
to the entrance-gate. Nor did they part
company here. The two friends could
do no less than accompany the ladies to
the gate of Ivy Cottage, where they at
last took h ave, St. Lawrence having
first obtained permission to bring his
sketch hook one evening to show Miss
Dalton some American scenery.
"So it is the same family after all
that Higgs spopM of." said Douglas.
"How strangely things turn out!"
"What alovelv giii Miss Haltoti is!"
observ - I t. Law rence. "I think I have
never sim a face that struck me as be
ing so beautiful!"
"Yes, she is handsome certainly,"
Douglas allowed; "but to my mind," he
added, "there is a certain ,odVi'fi(i lrau

"Why. man. where are your eyes?"
exclaimed St. Lawrence.
"Oil. of course, as far as form and
color go. I have nothing to sav," re
turned Douglas; -but look at the soul
that shines out of the eves of rnv Ber
tha. Bcrtha-hv Jove! what a delicious
name! How it'falls from the lips soft

far gone?" sai l St. Lawrence.'smiling.
and laving his hand on his companion's
Douglas half laughed mif sighed.
"It's no use it wouldn't no." lie con
fessed, giving himself a shake. "I'm
much mistaken if the Dalton were

and what could I mention? Two easels,
a black velvet coat considerably the
worse for wear, lots of empty bottles,
and half-a-dozen meerschaums. She
mightn't take the same view of the
matter that I do, you see."
hy don't you set to work in good
nest then?'' asked St. Lawrence.
"What a waster of time you are, Doug
las." "Work? Waster of time?" cried
Douglas. "Haven't I been working all
the afternoon? Haven't I been parad
ing myself in the expectation that folk
would say. 'Do you see that handsome,
clever-looking young fellow? That's
the celebratid Charles Douglas; you
should let him paint your portrait.'
But people won't take good advice, and
don't come to have their portraits
"Which is a deplorable mistake on
their part." St. Lawrence commented,
in the same vein.
"Well, I don't know whether I'm in
love or not. They say lovers can live
on air: but I'm blessed if I can!" said
Douglas. "I'm desperately in love."
"I'm rather inclined that way too,"
said St. Lawrence.
"Then intrust yourself to me, and
you shall not repeiit it," said Douglas.
'I am glad to find you are not going to
subsist solely upon the black and mel
ancholy humors that seem to have
taken possession of you since vour last
interview with the redoubtable Kiggs;
nor yet upon your 'dream of fair wom
en' that has irradiated your countenance
for the last few hours."
"I am but a prosaic mortal, you see,
Douglas," explained St. Lawrence,
smiling. "The one trouble is too deep
down to affect the ordinary surface of
my life, and, for the other, I haven't
quite lost mv wits yet. Miss Dalton is
born to -walk in silk attire,' ar ' not in
a gown of frieze such ns 1 could offer."
"But tho gown of frieze may be only
for a very short while, and some morn
ing your wife might awake to find her
self married to the 'Grand Panjandrum'
himself, with 'the little round button
at the top.' By Jove, what an opportu
nity for a romance!"
Thus talking, they walked down
Baker Slreet, and through Portrnan
Square, and so on to the est-End res
