CHAPTER I Leslie Malinconrt. a
coquette, is invited to visit her aunt.
Lady Appuldnrcombe, that she may
oe satisnea on ner return to marry
bod xieatneney. she is welcomed
by her cousin, Ronald Kilmurray.
II Lesley meets Miss Cynthia de
Salts. Ill And is interviewed bv
Ranelagh nowadays standi! in much
the same relation to HarlinKham as a rus
tic yonnff beauty in a cotton gown wash
ing ber face in the morning dew does to
a court belle all powder and patches and
trailing, brocaded skirts, and tbe world
seems to prefer tbe rustic for the present
but will it last?
The quaint bonf, through which
you pass to tbe grounds, acts yonr
thoughts and memory working, and
many a famous scene rises unbidden to
the eye, but to yonng folks who have
not destroyed the pleasures of reality by
tbe overstudy ot books Ranelagh is sim
ply a charmingly sylvan spot conven
iently near town, in which one might
spend few hours very pleasantly
without tho inducements of those eccen
tric sports that everybody has ostensibly
come to see.
By tbe time Mr. Telverton had
brought bis team, with a flourish, roand
the wide sweep of grass opposite the
seats arranged for spectators, tbe little
hurt bad gone out of Lesley's heart and
that pucker from ber brow which bad
made Ronny shake his head at his
mother in a way that the latter felt un
kind wben they were starting.
Lesley was herself again a most re
freshing self, jndging by Yelverton's
fits of laughter and tbe occasional diffi
culties he bad got into coming down,
through listening to her, instead of
minding has own business.
Luckily the horses knew theirs, and
when at last they stopped Ronny climb
ed np behind the box seat and asked tbe
two what they had been laughing at
Lesley refused to tell, and Mr. Yel
verton backed ber np, while his mother,
now the grooms were gone, was at lib
erty to impart such information as she
thought fit to tho men on the coach, who
displayed a great thirst for information
about "the lovely Malinconrt," as the
world bad already named her.
"She bas a will of her own, and she
had never heard of Ronny in her life,"
she confided, by and by, to a vieille
mustache, when the others had got down
to examine the ponies and dummies and
other odds and ends that make gymk
hana such a huge joke to the lookers on.
"And now she won't listen to him,"
said tbe old boy, grinning and looking
at the three before him and thinking
that Master Ronny, who bad gone scot
free all his life, migut get a rap from a
slip of a girl over the knuck'os yet.
"I believe yon were langhiug at my
expense," Ronuywas insisting, and ad
dressing tbe back of Lesley's bead.
Lesley turned a little, scornful face
ever so slightly toward bim, the face
upon which, she instinctively felt, he
was always looking for those marks that
the kisses of half a county should, by
rights, have left upon it
"I shall call you Aristides,"she said.
"Didn't the people banish bim because
they were sick of bearing of his virtues?' '
The words were rede, but a certain
quality in her voice'mado them merely
"Meaning that I'm-a dull dog," said
Ronny impertnrbably. "Well, so I am.
Bnt I'm very tenacious too. What were
you laughing at?"
Lesley glanced down and saw Cynthia
walking past. This, then, was the rea
son she could not dislodge him.
"If you really must know," she said
"we were talking about frills. "
Telverton threw himself back and
laughed. Be bad met nothing so much
to bis taste as Lesley the entire season.
"Frills I" repeated Lesley solemnly,
who, like a real woman, wanted to visit
on Ronny some of the discomfort his
mother had caused her that morning.
"You men are so fond of them. You
like heaps and heaps of them, and the
more frills and the more lace we can
cram on to our skirts the nicer you think
we look and the more you love ns I I'm
cure that half the wife desertions and
domestio tragedies in the world are
caused by a scarcity of frills. It's tbe
contrast, I suppose, of your strength and
the frivolity of our frills that intoxi
" 'Pon my word. Miss Malinconrt,"
said Mr. Yelverton gravely, "I've often
thought that it's all that foam of lace
that makes tbe dancing girls catch on
"You've hit the right nail on the
head. It's not them we love; it's their
frills I Just as tbe mare respectable a
woman is the less frill and tbe mare leg
she shows in tbe street. "
But Lesley did not seem to hear, and
Ronny, at tbe risk of breaking his neck,
had precipitously descended and was
seen marching off with disgust strongly
imprinted all down his back.
Lesley drew in her breath.
"I've done it now !" she said, nodding
and looking np into the kind, ugly face
of ber companion like a naughty child
who is asking a bigger and a naughtier
one what he thinks her punishment will
"I did it on Tmrpose, yon know, to
bock him. ' You'll forget it all. every
WOJiJu.yroot svuVl. .

"Pray,' what Harm was there in It?"
inquired Mr. Yelverton stoutly. "You
should hear some of 'em talk" 1 -
"Only I'm not some of 'em," said
Lesley coldly, and lifting ber proud lit
tle bead after ber own distinctive fasti
ion. " You were telling me when Major
"About that bay mare? She's ripping.
If I bring her round to Park Jane to
morrow at 10, will Lady Appuldur
combe mind your trying her?"
"Of course not," said Lesley, then
remembered that she was, to a certain
extent, baggage to be disposed cf as ber
temporary owners pleased.
"When are tbey going to begin?" she
exclaimed. "It seems a lot of running
about and nothing done. Like a Punch
and Judy show with dog Toby and the
baby left out!"
Mr. Yelverton grinned.
"Wait till you seethe Johnnies being
rigged np in fancy dress by their
dames," he said. "It is silly. That's
why people like it Makes them feel so
superior, you know. It's when they're
asked to enjoy things a cut above 'em
and feel small they get mad. Here they
come, at last I"
Lesley leaned over as the ponies
dashed past, then clapped her bands.
"That was clever!" sbe said as one
of the riders, going at full speed, picked
off,, with a long spear like weapon, tbe
rings suspended from a wooden staple
on his left. "And that was stupid," she
added as the other man missed tbe ring
on the right "Let us get down." And,
without waiting for the ladder, she did
so, with a nimbleness and dexterity that
argued at once a long acquaintance with
coaches and joints of extreme suppleness.
"I believe you drive a team your
self, " said Mr. Yelverton, when he bad '
joined ber and Lady Appnldurcombe
was also descending at her leisure.
"No, but a friend of ours, Mr.
Heath" she stopped abruptly "has,
and dad and I often go oat with him
"Same old game," he thought
"Where there's a pretty girl there's sure
to be a coach no, I mean"
' This was the last he saw of Lesley for
some time. She was pounced upon, ap
propriates!, divided and introduced till
she began to think of climbing the coach
again, just to get rid of these men, who
all seemed to ber exactly alike and left
no permanent impression on her mind.
Once she saw Cynthia de Salis at a
little distance, who did not appear to
see her. She was dressed in white, and
her beauty had the same troubling effect
on Lesley's mind that it had on so many
"I should go mad about her if I were
a man," Lesley thought, "but what a
pity 6he bas that dash of red in her
hair ! Red haired women are so terribly
faithful ! What were you 6aying, ex
cellency?" to her friend of overnight,
v. ho had quietly made his way to her.
"That it's a pity Kilmurray is not
riding today. "
' ' Would his dignity stand being dress
ed np by his 'lady' in fancy costume,
like those men over there?" inquired
"Well, we should have the treat of
seeing him ride, anyway. "
"And can ho ride?" There was keen
interest in Lesley's tone, . for, if she
hated men, she adored horses from tbe
bottom of her sonL
Tfcj men surrounding ber stared.
"Don't you know," said one of them,
"that Ronny Kilmurray is tbe best gen
tleman rider in England?"
Lesley stamped her little foot on the
soft gra?s and vowed she must have tea
But that stamp of the foot meant'
"I'm sick of Ronny, and his bravery,
and bis riding, and his perfection as a
son. Hasn't he got a weakness any
where? It almost makes one want to
see faulty old Bob I"
The clock pointed at five minutes to
10, and Lesley, in hat and habit the
waistcoat was really tbe most swagger
part of the whole concern was leaning
over tbe balcony, sharply criticising the
points of a neat hack that was being
slowly led up and down outside for her
She shook her bend at last decisively
and longed to see Ronny, to tell him
that, if be did know how to ride, choos
ing h horse for a lady was a matter to
which she could very easily show him
As the clock struck tbe hour Mr. Yel
verton appeared with a groom behind
him, leading a matchless bay mare, who
picked her steps delicately and arched
her neck, ber coat shining like satin in
"Yon beauty !" cried Lesley from the
bottom of ber soul in ecstasy. Yelver
ton looked up to the balcony, flushing
all over his ugly, honest face at sight of
"I'm so glad yon like ber. Miss Co
quette," he said eagerly, then glanced
doubtfully at the horse Ronny's groom
led np and down. "Won't you come
down and try her?"
"Yon can take that horse away," said
Lesley, waving a slender majestic arm
in the direction of tbe stables to Rouuy s
groom, and the man, wondering, obey
ed, though not before Yelverton had
said something quickly to him, to which
be replied briefly in ascent as he touch
ed his hat
Lesley ran down stain three steps at
a time and cut. into the. rood. She bad
THCrca "MvumvanuNsutvesj tin.
not time to shake hands with Telverton,
but quite enough to stroke tbe mare's
velvet nose and give ber the bit ot sugar
be bad made ready for Ronny's de
Aa Yelverton swtmg her, light aa a
bird, into the saddle, and she stuck her
foot into the atirrupa and settled her
skirts cleverly with one shake, the mare
pricked up ber delicate ears and began
to dance aa if infected by the frivolous
atmosphere cf youth that Lesley always
seemed to diffuse, or possibly because
sbe Jmew sbe had something very spe
cial on ber back, but certain it is that
Lesley, by voice and touch, encouraged
ber in ber tricks till Yelverton, looking
on at the delightful pair, wondered
what tbey might not take into their
beads to do next
- It would be difficult to say which set
tled tbe question, tbe two feminine
things appeared so entirely of one mind,
but while Yelverton was anxiously in
quiring the whereabouts of Major Kil
murray from Cbarville, who held his
horse. Miss Coquette edged playfully off
toward Stanhope Gate and Lady Appul
dnrcombe appeared on the balcony just
in "time to see Lesley disappearing at a
smart canter down the park, with Yel
verton rapidly overtaking ber.
She stood looking after them in per
plexity. Where was Ronny, and why
was Yelverton taking bis place? The
sight of one of her grooms in hot pursuit
of the pair rather relieved ber mind.
Still it was all incomprehensible and
altogether wrong, thought her aunt,
with some very real concern.
Of course tbe girl could not be ex
pected to know the proprieties and Yel
verton was about as safe a man as a girl
could be seen with. Still! And then
Lady Appuldnrcombe thought of her
brother-in-law not exactly with bless
ing and reverted to her original asser
tion that she never could forgive him.
One could not help loving Lesley, to be
sure, but Lesley was a handful.
Some idea of sending Charville or
Parker to bring the girl bafk crossed
her mind, but that would be to make
everybody ridiculous, herself included,
so she sat down to ber escritoire, reserv
ing her sonl in patience and only hop
ing that Ronny might have arranged to
meet tbein in the Row.
Meanwhile the fair Malinconrt was
"going it like steam," as a veryconsid
erable number of nersons. who alreadv
. knew her by sight, with some amuse
ment remarked an hour or so later.
On Yelverton's marc that was a
g'cod deal better known by sight in
town than some cf the principal people
in it in Yelverton's company, quite
alone well, it wis rather-rapid, don't
you know, but no one could deny that
she rode better, dressed' better and
looked better than any girl who had
shone in tbe Row that season.
Tbe world grinned at the great Lady
Appnldurcombe being caught socially
tripping, and cr& tbe immovable face
of ber manservant behind the pair did
not mend matters in tbe least Yelver
ton, thoroughly - uncomfortable, had
tried to persuaue Lesley to go toward a
more unfrequented part of the park, but
she liked the shade of the trees and to
watch the people, she said, so drew np
at the rails and soon had round her most
of the men who bad been introduced to
her since she arrived in town.
Fhe talked to them all with the grace
and fearlessness that distinguished her.
yet witbene one word or look to which
Lady . Appnldurcombe could possibly
1-ive taken exception, wilh bo veil to
bide the rich bloom on her cheek, the
peculiar blue of her clear eyc, the
swiit changing emotions, all keen and
delightful, thr.t came and went on her
little spirited, joyous face.
Sbe found one, or two old Somerset
shire friends among the somewhat
sparse crowd men who had almost
forgiven her for jilting them, just as
sho had entirely forgotten any caso of
offense they might have against her,
and she was having the beEt of goixl
times, while Yelverton was hnving tho
worst, when Ronald Kilmurray rode
np, by sheer force of control hiding the
intense annoyance that devoured him.
"Very sorry to be so late, cousin.
he said, lifting bis bat to Lesley and
nodding to several men in the group.
"Will you find it too hot for a turn?"
And before she knew bis intention he
bad turned her bridle rein, and they
were galloping down the Row side by
"Seems in a hurry," Lesley heard
one man say to another. Then somebody
laughed, and staring in amazement at
Ronny she saw him clinch his teeth.
while the riders who knew and passed
him observed that glory evidently did
not suit bis constitution.
"What made you go off with Yelver
ton like that?" he said abruptly. "And
on his horse ! How dare the fellow !" he
muttered furiously. "Was not the horse
I sent round for you good enouch?"
Lesley checked the mare so suddenly
that a less perfect rider wond have been
unseated, and with Miss Coquette stand
ing stock still called after Ronny with
out raising her voice.
Ronny, who had shot beyond, came
back with a very bad grace indeed.
"I did the best I could, "he said cold
ly. "In tho height of tbe season it ia
"Wo not the hone good enough?"
not easy to pick up what one wants. But
what made yon slip off with Yelverton
like that? I was delayed"
Lesley positively quivered with rage
as. resting her band ojj the back of her
saddle,' she faced round en Konny.
"How dare you!" she said very low.
"Bnt this is dad's doing. At home no
one would dare to insult me so! Slip
off! As if I wero a kitchen maid sneak
ing out cf a back door!"
"Lesley," said the young man stern
ly, ft hero isn't a soul who has seen you
this morning alone with Yelverton and
riding his horse but thinks either that
yon are engaged to him or want to be,"
Lesley put her horse at a walk, trem
bled violently and turned away her head
so that be could not see ber face. He
thought she was crying, and bis anger
showed to him altogether dispropor
tionate against this young thins; his
"Don't cry," he said, more kindly.
"We must make the best of it. "
Sbe turned round then, and he saw
she was laughing fit to kill herself and
looking at him with a sort of pity.
"Oh, it's such a joke," she said when
she was able to stop, "my wanting to
be be engaged to anybody I It's just
the other way round !" and she wiped
her eyes and laughed again, having now
completely recovered ber good humor.
But Ronny did not laugh ; he looked
dourly ahead like tbe angry man sbe bad
"And don't you think," slw went on,
"that it '8 rather absurd for a hero to
bully a girl for doing in tho park, with
people all arennd, what sbe would not
think twice about doing in the country
quite alouc? Why, I've often shown
dad's friends the way from the start to
the kill and ho never thought of getting
blue in the face from shock!"
"That's Somersetshire," said Ronny
curtly, "and this is town. Ladies don't
do such things here."
"3fa They do woree," said Lesley
smartly. "I didn't shut my eyes the
other night at the menagerie, or last
night at dinner, or yesterday at Rane
lagh, and a country girl would blush to
behave as some of your town Indies do!"
They bad got to Knihtsbridge by
now, and tbe sun was smiting down on
them with rays fierco as the wrath that
was burning in their young undisci
"But appearances must be respected,"
organ Ronny, then stopped, fur he was
preaching a gospel the reverse of what
ho believed il, ouly.be was his mother's
mouthpiece jmt then and reflecting
some of ber anger and worry when on
his return home he had discovered
through Charville how matters lay.
"Poor-hero!" said Lesley, with gen
uine contempt in her tone. "After all,
dad was right in hating town and call
ing it the city of shams you don't
seem able to think or see straight here
from your heart, I mean. It's all from
outside, through other people's eyes!"
Sho shook her head so sorrowfully
that Ronny burst out laughing, where
upon she joined in, saying encouraging
ly. "It's so stupid to make a fuss about
little things wben there ore such lots of
big ones to cry ov:r, isn't it? But I'm
very glad you've got a temper," confi
dentially. "You were getting very try
ing with your everlasting goodness!
Isn't it almost time to turn back?"
"And I am afraid you will never die
of goodness, Lesley," he said. "Won't
you go home this way?" he added dis
ingenuously. "It's much prettier, and
it must bo nearly lunchtime now."
"Ko, I won't," said Lesley, turning
the mare and throwing bim a bewilder
ing smile over her shoulder that, for the
fir.it time, convinced him she was a
"I haven't said goodby to Mr. Yelver
ton or thanked him for the treat I've
had on this beauty," and she whispered
something in tho bounty's car that rnado
her dance sidelong and arch her neck
and play off as many tricks as a belle
at her first ball.
Ronny s-lid nothing, adapting his
horse's pace to Miss Coquette's, till tho
pair, tired cf caper, condescended to
range themselves sedately by bis side,
and the first remark, as is usual when
a woman is entirely in the wrong,
came from Le? ley.
"I'm glad Br,b is not a cousin," she
"He might think himself privileged
to be horrid!"
"I think Mr. Bob lias got his work
cut out for hiin,""said Ronny, who
looked so disturbed, so altogether unlike
his usual catelcss self, that Cynthia, in
a deliciously cool, blues cambric gown,
who saw them coming, told herself that
the blow bad fallen at last, and this
girl, who was turning all the men's
heads, was turning his also.
"Goodby, Mr. Yelverton! Thank you
so much for the treat yon have given
me!" she heard Lesley say in that spon
taneous, sincere way natural to her, and
then Ronny's voice, inquiring, "Could
you look me up at the Rag after lunch,
Yelverton?" Then, without waiting for
an answer, he galloped off after Lesley,
who bnd, as was generally admitted
among the left bchiuds, "taken the
cake" in all round cheek that morning.

Ante as Biters.
Ants are terrible fighters. They have
very powerful jaws, considering the size
of their bodies, and therefore their
method ia by biting. They will bite one
another and hold on with a wonderful
grip of the jaws, even after all their legs
have been bitten off by other ants.
Sometimes six or eigbt ants will be
clinging with a death hold to one an
other, making a peculiar spectacle, some
with a leg gone and some with half the
body gone. One singular fact is that the
grip of an ant's jaw is retained even
after the body has been bitten off and
nothing bnt the head remains. Ex

A Flea Works the
At Essen, Germany, in the great
Erupp gun works, which are situated
at that place, there is a hammer that
weight CO tons. This hammer works in
connection with an anvil weighing 60
tons, which, in turn, is placed on an
anvil block weighing 1 20 tons. Profess

Bern, Switzerland, visited Essen and
tbe great war machine works a few
years ago. Upon returning home he set
about making a model of the great
hammer which should be complete in
every detail, but on such a minute scale
that the hammer could bo raised by a
flea instead of by a 100 horsepower en
