An old friecd of his, who had made
ITreat fame and some money as a novel

lected hint to illustrate an edition de
lnxe of his famous noreL "Claire Inge

and had offered rery liberal terms.
Here was the opportunity for which
Richard Lacy had been waiting ever
since he came to London, a youth of
seventeen, more than ten years ago.
He was a struggling artist, who
painted pictures (which never sold) in
the daytime, and earned his bread and
cheese at night by designing for the
stationery trade, and such black-and-white
work as he could get hold of.
He managed to make about six hun
dred dollars a year, one-third of which
went for the rent of the gaunt, bare
studio in which he worked, and the
little bedroom attached in which he
slept. The purchase of in ate rials ex
hausted another third, and on the re
maining two hundred dollars he lived.

Unless he could in some way arrest
the attention of the public he would
probably remain all his life an ill-paid
True, by some freak of fortune, one
of his pictures had once been exhibited
t the Royal academy. But it had been
"tkied," not a single critic noticed it,
and it was reproduced in none of the il
lustrated catalogues. Even now he
was in debt for its very gorgeous

A tall young girl stood before him.
She was not exactly beautiful, but with
an ar ist's instinct he at once noticed
the fine poise of her head and her shape

"Good morning," he said, at length.
She nodded gravely and handed him a
card. "Mary ltlackwood" was the name
Evidently she was a beginner at the
business. The old hands nerer called
on him, for they knew his means would
not allow him to engage a model, ex
cept rery occasionally.
"Well, I may be wanting a model
shortly." Lacy said; "may I ask what
your terms are?"
She stated them. They were ridicu
"Perhaps, yon can call to-morrow, and
I could then say whether you would be
likely to suit me."
When Richard Lacy had had three
sittings with Mary Blackwood he began
to wonder how in the world he would
hare got on without her.
Not only bad she read "Claire Inge
low," but she seemed thoroughly to un
derstand the somewhat difficult char
acter of Claire. She was erer ready
with useful suggestions. He admitted
to himself that she really inspired his
He looked forward with eagerness to
her visits. Not that they were partic
ularly lively affairs. Miss Blackwood
spoke only as occasion demanded, and
Lacy was not one of those artists who
can talk and work simultaneously.
One day when she came he was al
most prostrated by a more than usually
severe headache, a complaint from
which be frequently suffered. In the
middle of the morning's work she sud
denly jumped up.
"Why, Mr. Lacy, you are iU," she
"Only one of my headaches," he said,
faintly and wearily. "Yon know, I
often have them. But I think I will sit
down a bit "
Then he fainted.
When he recovered consciousness he
found himself lying on the only couch
which the studio boasted, while Mary
Blackwood stood over him with a bot
tle of smelling salts.
Where do yon keep the tea" she
asked, with a smile. "I must make a
cup at once."
Years afterwards he remembered the
quiet joy with which he watched her
quick, graceful movements as she set
about preparing that tea.
"Bv the way. Lacy said, as he con
tentedly sipped the tea, "how came I
on this couch?"
I carried you there," said Mary, with
a suspicion of red in her cheeks.

'I nursed my mother for three years
before she died, and I know what to do;

From that time they were no longer

Richard suddenly discovered that it
was necessary for Mary to sit four times
a week instead of three.
Then he said he wonld like to paint
her portrait as "Clare Ingelow" for the
academy, which wonld open in a couple
It was about this time that Richard
found that he could talk an3 work as

"The money for the drawings won't

six months' holiday; that is all 1 can
afford. And then I must begin again
and take my chance. Perhaps the doc
tors are mistaken. They often are."
"Yes, very often," echoed Mary.
It was the day of the private view,
and Lacy sat in his studio wondering
if any among the brilliant crowd at
Burlington house had cast a passing
glance at his picture. Toward dusk a
telegram came, reply paid

Now, erery one knew Mark Ffolliott

information, lie went to see Mary next
"Richard, dear," she began almost
immediately, "1 know I am a brazen

"Don't joke, old girl!" he said, with a
tremor in his roice. "Pre been think

ought to release you, as there is no
prospect now of my being able to keep
even myself, to say nothing of a fara

"I must insist on it"
"Then I shall sue you for damages for
breach of promise."
Mary went softly up to him.
Then she showed him a letter which
she had that morning received from Mr.
Mark Ffolliott of Bedford row.
It set forth, with the usual legal for
mality of phrase, how the writer, catch

academy, had been astonished at the
likeness which it bore to 3 Miss Xor

with her uncle. Sir James Norris, who
was an old client of his; that Sir James
Norris had died about a year ago, in

the deceased left no relations except
his niece, and that the latter had mar

and subsequently died, leavinga daugh
ter; that Mr. Ffolliott had hitherto
been unable to trace the issue of this
marriage; and, finally, tliat he was con

Blackwood and heiress to one hundred

An old custom once prevailed in a re

who would truthfully swear that he
had minded his own business alone for a

with his neighbors. Many came, but
few, if any, gained the prize, which
was more difficult to win than the Dun

swore on the four Gospels, and held
out their hands in certain hope, some
hitch was sure to be found somewhere;
and for all their assertions the clock
remained stationary on its shelf, no
one being able to prove his absolute im
munity from uncalled-for interference
in things not in any way concerning
himself. At last a young man came
with a perfectly clean record, and the
cluck seemed as if it was at last about
to change owners. Then said the cus
todian: "O, a young man was here yes
terday, and made mighty sure he was
going to hare the clock, but he didn't"
Said the young man seeking the prize.

The first season after the young fruit
tree has been transplanted from the
nursery to its permanent home in the
orchard is a critical period in its exist
ence, and it is hardly too much to say
that on its growth during this period
depends in a great measure the future
value of the tree. If it receives a check
at this point in its career its full possi
ble perfection will probably never be
realized. Of course much of the first
season's success or failure depends upon
the care or carelessness with which the
transplanting has been done in the
spring, but still the summer care will
hare much to do in helping the tree
through the first season.
The greatest danger the tree will en
counter is the scalding effect of the
midsummer heat and the weakening of
its vitality by a drying of the earth
about the roots. The firstdifliculty will
he at least partially obviated, and the
latter almost wholly, by taking care
that the earth is made firm about the
roots when the tree is transplanted and
kept thoroughly well mulched. The
mulching shonld be spread on thickly
and as far out from the trunk of the
tree as the roots run, and if carried
considerably farther it will be all the
better, as the moist condition of the
soil beyond the extremities of the roots
will induce good growth.
Another care of summer is to be on
the lookout for the eggs of the apple
tree borer that may be deposited upon
the trunk, from which eggs, if not de
stroyed, will come a brood of larva)
apable of inflicting irreparable damage
upon the tree. Another important
summer care is the cutting off at once
of all branches that are not desirable
for the growing tree to possess, as in this
way much strength can be saved to be
expended in growth, where growth is
desired. Care at all points throughout
the season is amply repaid by the
orchard in after years. Webb DonnelL
