in every limb.
How was it to end, this sinister in

her, on influence backed and strength
ened in some intangible way by Hagar,
for it was only when the hitter was
rlcse at hand that all power of self pro

liked to elo, and now villie himself
was knocking at the doer and whisper
ing superlatives through the keyhole
and entreating her to come out.
"Darling, where are you?" he was
saying. I liavo been searching the
whole place over for yon, and it is just
"I'm coming," she cried out, then
smoothed her hair, put on a fresh rib
bon and tried to lxk just as usual. But
before they had reached the end of the
corridor Willie, whose brows were knit
ted, had rir.ring search for her come
to a momentous decision, and under
cover of a friendly recess stopped to tell
"I don't know what that brute Tre
lawny says or dees to upset you, liuls
one," bo said, "but though I can t kick

dy Lirriper can't bear him out cf her

I don t chcose you to be subjected to

bullying and being chivied romid by

going cp to town tomorrow to bay a
wedding license, and I mean to run
away with yon tho night of the ball-
next Thursday night so there!"
Nannie did not faint or weep or blush
or do anything she ought to have done
ender the enocK of this announcement.
What she really did was to clasp her
soft nrnis round her lover's neck, with a
soul that rose above trousseaux and a
sigh of the deepest bliss, and say, "Oh I
hew lovely, Willie! "
And so it was settled.
It was tbo night of Nannie's coming
out (and going in ) ball, and the house
party were dining in the octagon room.
so called because it appeared perfectly
round, so that when its many windows
were shntteied iu a way to exactly
match the cedar wood paneling of the
wall and doors you might easily fancy
yourself in a glorified lighthouse wi;h
space on every side of yon.
The suspended lamp threw a flood cf
delicate pink color on the cozy round
table at which the two girls, clad in
their white ball gowns, sat. looking so
lovely, though in so very different fash
ions that Lady Lirriper for once actual
ly neglected her dinner to stare at them.
"If yon were only more human, yon
statue of Phidias, she said mentally,
addressing Hagar, "yon wonld be a
scourge to tho whole male race. As it
is yon will be a succes fou tonight, and
if you don't get more than one chance
cf remaining in this hole cf a Devon
instead of returning to pupil teaching
I m a fool. As to you," and she look
ed hard at Nannie, "you are sweetly
pretty, and your neck and arms are abso
lutely delicious. I snppcse only a man
as black as Trelawny appreciates the
full value of a skin like yours, and he
will be ready to eat you up, and all
the men will vow ye.u are a little duck
and want to take yon in to supper
that's the sort of little girl yon are, and
a very good sort too. You'll win hearts
all along the line while the Gregorias
keeps her eyes fixed on the moon, which
in this instance is Will Cassilis, and
about as much out of her reach too. "
"The flowers look very well, " Nannie
was raying, and indeed she and Willie
had spent the whole of the past three
days in tr tting to and from the hot
hou.cs, which were over half a mile
from the house, with astonishingly
! eager results to all eyes but their
"H'm!" said Lady Lirriper, "it's
lucky the rooms don't depend on your
efforts, child. That's the best of a place
like this there's literally nothing to

servants to polish the floors. And what
time do the aborigines arrive, ueorger"
she inquired of ber brother, who locked
a perfect image of wretchedness and as
if he expected the first arrival to be his
"Nine o'clock. Most of them have to

"And they'll wear the frocks they

This waa not strictly true, as Lady
Lirriper had not been born at Strauben

line of succession being the exception
and not the rule in that family.
"Thank heaven, Blake's coming,"
ebo concluded as they rose to leave the
table. "We will 6it in a corner and

Nannie and will slid a few steps on
the polished floor together iu pure light
hearteduess and with seemingly endless
space before them, for all the furniture
savo coaches had been removed, and
only the great splendid audience on the
walls seemed to await in stately silence
the arrival of those mnch less interest
ing people who presently would be en
gaged in strutting out their little lives
"Tomorrow tomorrow!" whispered
Will Cassilis in her ear. They had
searcclv dared to look at each other at
diuner lest their eyes should shout their
secret to thoso around.
For it was to be tomorrow, not to
night. They had altered the programmo
after much consideration, and Nannie
was to walk out nest morning to a
neighboring village whore tho young
rector, who waa beholden for his living
to Will, wonld marry them safe and
fust, and then they were going to tell
Lord Straubenzeo, and afterward so
simple was the whole thing go home
to Cassilis castlo and there remain.
"I've ciily just come home, darling,"
Will had said. "For a year, you know,
I have been a banished man, and the
estate wants me, nud we can be as hap
py there as birds and hide when people
cone to lock ns np. Bnt- if you really
want to go abroad we will go."
And Nannie, with a strong misgiving
acd cn intense desire to escape alto
gether or.t of Trelawny's orbit, had
yielded to Will's withes, the more espe
cially ns Will bad announced his deter
mination not to receive Blake at any
price in his houKc.
"Let the county say what it likes,"
he had said resolutely, "bnt my door
he does not darken, and if he wants
reasons hs shall have them. "
Whereupon Nannie had drawn a deep
breath and rojoiced all too soon.
She did not feel that sho was doing
a disobedient, nufllial act in marrying
Will unknown to her father thus. She
had felt very keenly and bitterly that
her father had dono a cruel and unjust
thing in separatingjier from the man
she loved, and it was not his fault that
her life had not bom entirely ruined by
the influence Blake Trelawny had
known how to establish over her.
That influence might at any moment
prove beyond her strength to resist, and
Nannie in her mortal fear wonld have
run greater risks than this to place her
self out of his reach forever. Even now
she trembled to think that she would
see him tonight, that 6ho would have
to dance with him, hear whatever he
chose to say, bnt it would be for the last
time, and as she ran up stairs to fetch
her gloves and bonquet sho told herself
she was the happiest girl in the whole
At 0 o'clock Lady Lirriper swept in

At all times the sight of Straubenzee
sitting calm and happy among his books
was as a red rag to a bull, for solitude
and her own or any written thoughts
she detested, bnt tonight she was espe
cially irritated and repeated the title
of his book with prof onnd contempt.
" 'The Pleasures of Life!' " she said.
"Pray what do you know of 'em?
You'll turn into a paper moth when
yon die and go buzzing abont libraries

the idiots who always arrive everywhere
too early are here, and you've got to
come and help me receive them.
Lord Straubenzee laid his book down
with a sigh. A son would certainly
have been less trouble than a daughter
and more satisfactory. Ho wished that
the ball, the dinner parties, the wed
ding were over; quite unconsciously in
deed he was wishing that tho young

In tho Cnited States the administra

of the citizen, bis property rights grow
ing ont of controversies between man
and man upon contracts, has come to be
regarded as of much more importance
than tho enforcement of the law which
protects the life of the citizen. All can
notice that. Tho criminal law and its
administration have rather fallen into
disgrace. That is especially true of the
large cities of the country. All must
agree that it is more important to pro
tect a man's life than it is his property
II the man s life is destroyed, if the as
sassin fires into his house and takes
away bis life, is that not a greater dep
rivation than to despoil him of his
horso or his cow or even of all the other
property which he i-ossesses? Now why
is this the case? It is largely because of
the corrupt methods resorted to to do-
