rejoined Lena. "Thai does .ot make

Lena sidied. Could her heart have
been touched so soon? What was it
that responded to St. Lawrence's ex
pressive fiances, to the tones of his
voice? Why did a shiver pass through
her, as if a cold mist had suddenly ob
scured the sun. as she contrasted him
with that other man whose wife she had
already in her own mind determined to
be? In the meantime, however, she
might receive St. Lawrence's homage to
her charms. She did not feel bound to
turn a deaf ear to other admirers, either
now or hereafter, because she could be

"Very well, then," said Lena, with a
faint smile; "since mamma has set Mr.

already, you shall take the sketch-book,
and I the artist."
"Agreed; lam quite willing," return

St. Lawrence was not long in availing
himself of Mrs. Dalton's permission
to call. lie appeared at Ivy Cottage
early in the following week, a well
filled sketch-book under his arm.
It was a warm evening; the bay-window
of the prettv drawing-room stood
open, and the scent of lilac, hawthorn,
and other spring blossoms came wafted
in with the breeze. Lena sat at the
window, with a morsel of lace-work in
her hand; she looked lovely in her spot
less white rtrpss. and was perfectly con
scious that bhe did so. Bertha, on the
contrary, was pale, and appeared tired.
She had seated herself in the shadow of
the curtain, in order to rest her eyes.
The dav was hot for the early season;
Bbehad'beenatMiss Beaumont's school,
where she had many pupils, some of
whom were bo totally wanting in both
ear and taste for music thai she folt the
lessons only waste of time on both
sides and this added greatly to her fa
tigue. Mrs. Dalton reclined in a loung-Insr-chair,
a novel in her hand.
They all for different reasons united
in welcoming St. Lawrence. Mrs. Dal
ton was always glad of a change of
anything that saved her the trouble of
amusing herself. Lena was ready to
seize the opportunity of deepening the
impression she had already made; and
Bertha was pleased with the prospect
of turning over the sketch-book.
St. Lawrence delighted in female so
ciety the more so, perhaps, as circum
stances had offered him few opportuni
ties of indulging his taste in that direc
tion. This elegant little home, Mrs.
Dalton's pleasant, cordial manner, and
the beauty and grace of at least one of
its inmates charmed him. lie congrat
ulated himself on obtaining au intro
duction to a family with whom he might
occasionally pass an hour so agreeably.
If Lena's beauty had struck him at
first sight, he seemed only to be aware
of its perfection now that he saw her
at home plaits of golden hair crown
ing her lovely bead, soft white drapery
floating about her graceful form and
to Lena be devoted himself for the first
part of the evening. During the hour
or two in which the sketch-book was
displayed, he felt chilled and disappoint
ed. Lena professed a love for art, and
declared that of all things she delight
ed in sketching from nature; but St.
Lawrence soon found that she had no
knowledge of the subject, and began
strongly to suspect that she had no real
feeling.' ILe was not the m m to admire
a shallow r ignorant observation be
en ise it fell from beautiful lips; and.
almost involuntarily, his eyes sought
Jlertlrti's countenance, as she turned
over the book.
lie could not but notice how the jad
ed look vanished from her face, how
her color rose, her eyes brightened, and
ti e thought passed through his mind
that Douglas was right; that this girl
was lovely with a far more jynVtuei
beauty lhan her elder sister.
At t' i the sketches ha I been turned
over and the book closed, they sat by
the o en window talking through the
long twiiigiit. St. Lawrence hud trav
eled through many lands, and was aa
accurate observer of men and things.
Topic after iopic presented itself Her
tlia's intelligent questions and bright
observations, sometimes fanciful, some
times serious, keeping the conversation
alive. Mrs. Dalton. unle.-s she could
run on in her own way upon smite topic
of uiouu utai y inti lest, was too iuiio
lenttotalk, even if she had been en
dowed with any conversational powers.
Lena had no idea of any necessity for
exerting herself, or she would probably
ii ive niaue some effort on the present
occasion. It was enough for her to look
and smile and she. did smile on the
young landcape-painter, making no
doubt but thai she was raising him to

"1 believe your head runs upon opals,"
"Did I not hear something about an
antique opal ring that came into your
possession, and then disappeared again
in an unaccountable manner?" said St.
Lawrence, addressing himself to Lena.
"It is strange how reports fly about.
Does rumor this time tell the truth."
"The story of that tiresome ring is
Hertha's," answered Lena. "I am sure
we have heard enough of it. Hut Her
tha, I dare sav, will tell you about it if
you wish. I really have nothing to do
with it." .
St. Lawrence turned inquiringly to
Hertha, who related all she knew of the
rireurustauees her adventure in the
omnibus, her call upon Mrs. Lemont,
and the subsequent loss of the ring dur
ing her absence, when she had found
Lord Alphineton to be its owner.
' Vou think, from the appearance of
the man who lost the ring, that he could
not have been the legitimate owner?"
interrogated St. Lawrence. "What
was it about him that made you thiuk
Hertha described the man, and St.
Lawrence remained for a few minutes
as if lost in thought and then rousing
himself he thanked Hertha for her story.
It is altogether a singular incident,"
lie said; "I shall feel much interested in
knowing if anything further comes of
"I will tell you if anything more is
ever heard." promised Hertha; "the
storv certainly ought to have a conclu
sionespecially with the prophecy at
tached to it."
"What is that?" asked St. Lawrence.
"Oulv nonsense," interposed Mrs.
Dalton" "I wonder that you repeat
such st'tff, Hertha. when you know how
impossible it is that it can ever be ful
filled in vour case."
"It is lust because it is so absurdly
imuossible that I do repeat it," Hertha
"Let me hear this absurd impossibili
ty." St. Lawrence requested.
"Lord Alphincrton is my authority,"
said Hertha. "He told me of an old
tradition in the family that whoever
wore the ring for three times seven
davs I think that was the charmed
number would be Countess of Alph
ington. I suppose the inventor of the
pr iphecy believed the ring to be too
small for any hut a lady's hand. I won
der how long that little man in the om
nibus wore it on his bird's-claw-like lin
ger?" "The man seems to have impressed
vou," observed St. Lawrence, looking
at Hertha with nn expression of great
interest, as if be began to see her in a
new light. "Would you recognize him
if you .inw him again?"
"Immediately," Hertha returned. 'I
should know hnn by his restless black
-ve, too near together, his thin, aqui
line nose, his thin lips, always in mo
tion, and his dark hair in little cork
"It's quite ridiculous how you notice
people's faces. Hertha," put in Mrs.
Dalton. 'i never do. And yet you are
not what 1 call observant. You didn't
see that Mrs. Maxwell had on anew
bonnet at church last Sunday."
"I suppose we don't all observe the
same things, mamma,1' Bertha said;
and a smile played round the corners of
St. Lawrence was plunged in thought
for a few minutes, and then he again
regarded Hertha with the same expres
sion of deep interest.
"Did you wear that ring the approved
mimber'of days?" he asked, recurring
to the prophecy.
'I wore it rather more than a month;
so I suppose the charm was broken,"
"I think we are never to hear the Inst
of that ring." said Mrs. Dalton. "The
first time Mr. Tanconrt called upon us
Irs visit was about that ring."
"Vr. Fanci'it!" St. Lawrence ex
claimed, a sharp ring in bis voice.
' i.. ni .Up.o'igton s grandson," Mrs.
Dalton eyphioed "the young man who
lias just been proved heir to the earl
dom. It is quite a romantic story. Of
course we liall be introduced to him
when we go to stay with our friends,
St ."Stephen and Lady Langley, at the
Larches they are neighbors of Lord
Alphiiigton's! Hut he called to inquire
about the ring."
St. Lawrence glanced quickly first at
Hertha then at Lena. Hertha had evi
dently heard laneourt's name men
tioned w it'u perfect indifference. Lena
er.-t down her eyes with a conscious
look, as she felt St. Lawrence's eyes
bent upon her. She began to replace
the working-materials she had been en
gaged upon in the dainty little basket,
as if to conceal her embarrassment.
St. Lawrence's lip curled. The slight
expression of contempt she did not
see; nor. if she had noticed it, would
she have interpreted it aright. Her
vanity would not permit her to imagine
that any unengaged man she met might
not become her adorer. Feeling as she
did the power of St. Lawrence's noble
bearing and courteous manner might
exert over her, in addition to the
straightforward honesty that shone
from his clear gray eyes, and the refine
ment and mental eiil'tivaticn that made
itself evident in the modulation of his
voice, she was merely balancing the
onevtion es- to whether'she would allow
Mm to fall in love with her or not.
Conversation returned to indifferent
topics. The long spring twilight closed
in. and Mrs. Dulton rang for the lamp.
St. Lawrence soon rose to go.
"I have a large picture on mv easel I
shall be hiip'.'y to show vou. if "vou and
your daughters would 'think it worth
while to take the trouble of visiting niv
studio." he said as he shook hands with
Mrs. Dalton did not cr.re verv much
about the pictures, but she was always
glad of an exct.se for going out. glad 'of
anything for a change; t-he therefore
graciously signified that she would be
hn-pv to pay him a visit with her elder
daughter. "My younger daughter is
much engaged.' she added.
Hertha's countenance fell, something
of the old weary look returned and
this was not lost' upon St. Lawrence.
The occurrences of the evening had
given him much to think of ami specu
late upon, lie sat up late, throwing
open his window, and gazing up at the
strip of sky that the view from it per
milled him to see. He might have
been an astrologer seeking to read the
future in the stars. While the smoke
from his cigar ascended into the still
night air, be pondered much over what
he had seen and heard.
Mingled with many anxious consider
ations as to his own fortunes were
thoughts of those whom be had just
left. There set med to him a great dis
crepancy. The Daltyns" house was
small, but there were signs of elegant
tastes not ungratitied. Mrs. Dalton and
the elder daughter were dressed fash
ionably, in a style that necessarily en
tailed ho small outlay. The hit ter, too,
indulged in the languid, indolent airs
of a line lady. She had ceased to charm
Mm. in spite of her beauty. During
that evening he had read her character
tolerably correct, and it certainly did
not inspire him with any warm regard,
llow was it, he asked himself, that the
younger sister was compelled to work,
and to work hard, apparently? How
was it there was such a marked differ
ence in her appearance? He felt inter
ested in her for Douglas's sake, he
told himself and was inclined to reseat
in her behalf the distinction made,
.she is sweet and sympathetic, as
well as animated and intelligent" fo his
thoughts ran; "the other is handsome,
but uninteresting selfish and ambi
tious if I mistake not. Douglas will be
a fortunate man if he succeeds in win
ning Hertha." With a half-sigh as he
came to this conclusion, he closed the
window and went to bed. where he
tossed uneasily for some time before
sleep brought forgetfulness.
Hertha had thoroughly enjoyed the
evening. It was rarelv she met with
any one so companionable. The clever
sketches, also, had been a great treat to
her. She began to think that an occa
sional visit from Mr. St. Lawrence
would add much to the few pleasures of
Lena, in the solitude of her own room,
shed a few bitter tears, so much had
the impression that St. Lawrence had
made upon her on their first meeting
been deepened bv further acquaintance.
She was obliged to confess to herself
that he was a man she could have
loved, and a vista opened itself to her
of another life than that she had hith
erto set before her view; but she reso
lutely turned away. Dashing the tears
from her eyes, she accused herself of
folk. It never for a moment occurred
to her that she might not be able to
bring St. Lawrence to her feet If she
chose. She took it for granted that, if
she engaged herself to Fanc.ourt, the
other would be in despair. "Hut he
cannot expect that I should think of
him seriously," she said to herself.
"He has nothing to offer me."
She felt inclined to rebel at fate for
not having given title and wealth to
the man she would have preferred for
condemning her to receive the address
es of one to whom she felt so great a
repugnance as she fell to Faneourt; and
then an uneasy feeling took possession
of her that perhaps she was not so se
cure of the heir expectant as she had at
first supposed. Mr. Faneourt now the
Honorable Mr. Faneourt had called
again soon after his first visit, and he
had shown his admiration in what from
any one but the heir to an earldom
would have been an offensive manner.
She however had been careful not to
betravthat she felt any cause of offense.
Hut since then he had not returned.
She had watched for him day after day,
and evening after evening during the
last week, and he bad not come. She
began to feel vexed and mortified at Lis
Highly as she esteemed her own pow
ers of fascination, she was half afraid
lest some one in his own sphere might
have come between them some high
born (hmnlwllc to whom his eyes might
have turned, and whom Lord Alphing
ton would more willingly accept as the
bride of his grandson and heir.
This uncertainty furthered Fan
court's suit much niore effectually than
bis presence could have done. She for
the moment forgot her dislike to the
man in her anxiety to clutch the future
coronet. And thus St. Lawrence's
image gave place to her accustomed
visions of splendors to come.
Faneourt 's passionate admiration for
Lena Dalton had increased rather than
diminished during the tune of his en
forced absence she need have been un
der no alarm. He had fully intended to
pursue his suit, but a letter received
from Julie Lemont altered his plans,
and took him out of town for a few
During a subsequent Interview with
Lord Alphington. affairs had been ar
ranged entirely to his satisfaction.
Handsome apartments were assigned
him in the long-vacant house in Magnus
Square; and what even he acknowl
edged to be a handsome income was
mentioned as about to be placed at his
disposal. Lord Alphington placing a
check for a considerable amount in his
hands for present expeuses. He could
scarcely conceal his exultation when
informed of these arrangements, and
Lord Alpbington's manner increased in
coldness toward him.
If Faneourt had betrayed any emotion
on assuming the name and rank of his
forefathers, or had expressed any de
sire to stand well with the old Karl, or
to be guided by his wishes in any way.
or had shown any anxiety to fulltil well
the duties of liis new" station. Lord
Alpbington's heart might have soften
ed toward him he might have forgiven
much. Hut there was nothing of the
kind: it was all self all sordid greed.
When Lord Alphington came to talk
with him on general subjects ho found
him by no means ignorant or devoid of
a certain degree of cultivation; ihe real
want was deeper. Fancourt's idea of
good was expediency: of pleasure, mere
sensual gratification: of wisdom, the
low cunning necessary to deceive for
certain ends. All else he considered
mere hypocrisy; and so far was he from
being conscious that he w as laying bare
a low. vulgar nature that he believed ho
was making himself out a fine fellow,
a man of the world, "with no humbug
Lord Alphington, wounded and dis
tressed, returned to Alphington Park
returned to feel his splendid home more
lonelv than ever; for now what hope
could there be that the void there would
ever be tilled? Faneourt would' marry,
as a matter of course, but he had little
expectation that such a step would
mend matters. What girl of refined
tastes and delicate habits would unite
herself with the low-bred, shallow
headed, evil-minded upstart he was
compelled to own as his grandson? No;
there whs nothing to look forward to
there. Faneourt would be caught by
some pretty face, most likely in a lower
grade, and would be accepted how
else could he be accepted? Lord Alph
ington asked himself for the sake of
his wealth and future title.
Could the desolate old man have
known that Faneourt had already made
his choice, he would have taken some
comfort. He had not felt particularly
interested in Madelina Dalton. but at
anv rate she was a beautiful and grace
ful woman, who would not disgrace bor
Lord Alphington wandered disconso
lately from room to room on the day
after his return home, lingering before
each memento of former and happier
years. He had never suffered his wife's
work-table aud embroidery frame to be
removed from the p'.aco in which they
had used to stand during her lifetime.
He drew out the table-drawer wherein
lay her scissors and thimble Just as she
had last used them; a piece of canvas
was still stretched on the frame, with a
rose-bud just begun, the threads of pink
andgreeu hanging loose. In the dining-room
were portraits of bis two
sons in their boyhood, and of a lady ho
had once called daughter-in-law, witli
an infant on her knee. In the school
room there were still sm ill desks and
well-worn books, besides batB and balls
and juvenile fishing-rods. Ah, how
long ago it seemed 'since those loving
faces pictured on the walls had sur
rounded bim since cheerful voices had
made music in the old mansion since
little pattering feet had been beard on
the stairs and along the wide corridors!
How quickly one alter another bad van
ished, leaving the old man alone! Of
what account were wealth and luxury
to him? he thought, as he stood at the
library window watching a herd of deer
sweep across a glade of the park. The
lodge-keeper, whose rosy children peep
ed shyly out ns he passed, in the hope
of a kind void or perhaps a sixpence
was u happier man than he.
Unwilling to allow these melancholy
reflections to overmaster him, he or
dered his horse round, and rode over to
the Larches to contide his troubles and
disappointments to Lady Langley 'a
kind and sympathetic ear.
"I am truly sorry to hear what you
say,'" said Lady LanirW, when Lord
Alphington had related the circuiu
btanees of bis visit to town, and the
cruel disappointment that had awaited
him; "but we must hope that the fall of
your expectations has led you to take
too gloomy a view. Ft rhaps on further
acquaintance you may not find your
grandson so repel'teni to you as you
now feel Ivm to be."
"Vou will see him when he comes
down to th Hark," Lord Alphington
returned, shaking hi? head; "and you
will find I 1 ave n, exaggerated. It
will be add.iii-ual grief to me aud a
cause of anxiety as v.i!l. I shall live in
perpetual fear of some disgraceful ex
1'Osiire." Lady Langley did her best to encour
age and ensile her old friend, for
whom Bhe lelt deeply. Notwithstand
ing her endeavors to s-e the matter in
a more cheerful light, she trembled,
know ing that Lord Alphington was not
the one to judge either hastily or harsh
ly, but that he must have' bad good
cause for the displeasure and urn-asi-lu-ssbe

His heart bctt fast us he feasted his
imagination on the thought of her
beauty, and told h'mself that ho had
nothing to do b:d to b-.'d o.;t his hand.
All fears seemed for the moment to
In this mood he rctiied to rest. Bed
room, drossiug-ivio n. bath-room, all
were faultless in their appointments.
There was an end to knocking about
the world, and an end to poverty, and
to schemes to raise money, and to the
annoyance of (tuns. And whv should
any speter rise up to disturb his enjoy
ment of all these good things.'' W hat
was done w as done w hy should he tor
ment himself? Honor. 'honesty, truth
what were these but tine-sounding
words? Faneourt had before now tried
to persnnde himself that men were all
alike that no one much regarded these
virtues excepting when it was conveni
ent; and, if anv were fools enough to
let such high-flown notions stand in
their wav. they deserved to lose in the
game of life.
Thus trying to argue down the moni

court fell a.ileip, to be ro i Red in the
morning by an unpleasant visitor in the
shape or a letter. After leading it, he
sprung out of bed with a muttered
oath. and. ringing the bell violently, he
ordered breakfast to be got ready im
mediately, and the dog cart to be
brought to the door in fin hour, to take

an absence that prevented his calling
again at Ivy Cottage. It was evening
when he returned to town, and the man
who appeared to take b:s portmanteau
was not the one who had been engaged
as his personal attendant, but a stranger
a rather small man, with shrewd gray
eyes, and dark hair and whiskers.
"Where is James?'' Faneourt asked.
"Why the deuce isn't he here, when he
knew I was coining home?''
' "James has been suddenly called
dwav bv his father's illness, sir," re
plied tlie new man; "and Mr. Farker
has desired that I should wait upon you
till his return.''
Faneourt anathematized James, his
father, and the house-steward, though
he ended by saying that it signified
nothing to liim who waded upon bim
as long as he got what be wanted.
"What is your name?" be asked, in
'John, if you please, p'r."
"Have you been accustomed to wait
"Oh, ves. sir," replied the man. smil
ing. "I have waited upon many, and
have alwavs given satisfaction."
That will do," returned Faneourt.
"Her?, take my oereont." he con
tinued, tossing 'a light-colored gar
ment toward him; ".and tell Rrooksthat
I shall dine in an hour -here."
