But we must introduce her ladyship with
due honors, as, indeed, she deserves. Lady
Vi was, in the order of events, somewhat
older than her daughter. But If this was in
evital.lv so. as we fear It was, she was not
the one to admit so damnziug a confession.
The one invariable compliment she expected
was: "Two sisters surely ! Impossible! Tills
young hidy your daughter! I must lie al
lowed to contradict you."
In truth she wns surprisingly young look

mistake one for the other, especially against
the light. The art of dress was employed
with tuut periectlou which coiieals itself.
Lady Vi was no doubt fully aware of all the
resources of modern civilization, and she
made skillful use of them all. Her manner
was even softer than her diuicliter's: her
voice lind a penetration which Impressed the
coldest listener, lieneath tb.tt delightful and

Inhabit our sphere suppiud her with those
objects of scientific Investigation and interest
which other people are said to Cud in the

It is also well known that, whatever sub

study, the greatest proficiency may be looked
for in even a short time, and this ladv had
not studied for nothing; she ought indeed to
have graduated iu honors.

is what be did.
He plied her on that evening with every at

lie attended her to bor carriage, shawled her
with the utmost solicitude, paid no heed to
Mabel's repruuchful looks nor found a word
to say to her. Iu short, he transferred him
elf bodily try Lady Vi, aud became from that
evening her devoted and abject slave.
At Uiirlingham, at Sundown, at Fenlev,
at balls, fetes, regattas and garden parties,
he was her constant attendant, insomuch that
people began 6rst to tutor and then to whis
per. And those agreeable and good natured
remarks wero freely exchanged which such
little game of skill are apt to provoke. Lady
VI accepted his and indeed any man's atten
