Feeling very sr.ro that storm of nn
tisual violence w. inipending, Mary
quietly directed the servant to take the
little boys and their breakfast out to the
kitchen. Miss Cornelia's tongue was
unbridled when her temper was up, and
sho did not care w hat she said or who
As soon as the doe r had closed behind
the children Mary turned to Iter aunt.
'Who says the things you alluded to
just now?" she demended.
"Everybody. And they say that you're
going to marry hi n, too. and ask me
about it. It's jierfe ;tly disgraceful. It
makes ine furious tc think of it; and I've
denied it until my tongue cleaves to the
roof of my mouth, uud nobody will le
lieve me. They are not going to lielieve
me, either, as long n s you allow him to
come here. The on y way to put a stop
to the outrageous gt ssip is to forbid him
the house at once." I
The knowledge fiat we are the sub- !
ject of comment nnd impertinent con
jecture, that our af 'airs are being dis- I
cussed and cunvatsed, always comes
with a kind of shock. That people '
should gossip about us is revolting, even i
when we onrselve are given to gossip '
ibout others; wher we are not, it be- I
comes insulting in addition. Mary j
talked so little of her neighbors' affairs
that to discover that they talked a great '
deal of hers made hi r exceedingly angry.
Miss Cornelia's p -oposition to garrote .
gossip and rob it ( f subject matter by 1
forbidding Ned Anthony the house 1
made no more impress:-. . '-u the fall- !
ing of a cinder. Even it' tu-ti-:vd to'
perpetrate such injustice, what pretext '

house and in her iresence in the most
gentlemanly maun t of which lie was
capable; he wislu-.l to please her and to
stand well with In l . and to that end ex- J
exerted himself a ording to his lights.
It is not in the p ,. t of kings or kaisers
to do more. She new very well that
he loved her, ;:. that he would ask
her k be his wi: .. It is of no conse- j
queuce bow she-li v; such knowledge
is arrived at by v unen by a process as
inscrutable sv.ul a- difficult of explana
tion as some tin". ogical dogmas. All
the women in t! e neighborhood, ap
parently, were as v ;.-.e ;us she was on the
One thing, however, they did not
know, and that w; s that Anthony had
not spoken yet, an 1. with Mary's good
will, would never i-peuk.
Miss Cornelia 1 leanwhile, enhanced
with the possession of so sturdy a griev
ance, and that must fascinating of all
forms of" grievance, a new shoot on a
familiar stock, ab. ndoned herself to its
full enjoyment. She had a thing con
cealed aliont her which gave her superi
ority and a sense of mastery of her sub
ject. In her pocket was a cartridge
which was to bit w Mary's obstinacy
and impenetrability into a hundred mor
'That man onght never to have been
allowed to set hi.- not across this thresh
old," she averre -1. "It is alisolntely dis
graceful his ha' i:ig presumed to visit
in my father's house, and that he has
leen allowed to liecome actually inti
mate here is a thii g that is too awful to
contemplate. I have opposed it all
along, but when has my advice ever
lieen taken in this house?"' An intense
pause, probably for contradiction or
some other form of reply; none came.
Miss Cornelia proceeded : "He is a
horrid, presuming, pushing creature,
and I know he c mies of odious, com
mon, uneducated people; bis whole bear
ing, as well as h s offensive manners,
shows it; and he has no business mixing
with genteel people. I don't care for
his money. Anyl ody can make money
even negroes, '.""hat's no criterion. I
never encouraged him to come here, or
made the place pi 'asant for him. Hut
yon are ?u pcrver e. and think yo..rself
so much cleverer ar.-l more capable of
judging than peoj In of twice your age
and experience, that, there's doing
r.nvtlung with ou. 1 wonder what
Hector would tar. if he were alive, of
tho way yon ma lage your affairs and
the scrapes yon .et yourself into. I'd
write this man a rote myself and forbid
him the house, except that, as likely as
not, you'd turn on me and say that the
honso was yours, lot mine."
Mary's eyes wet e beginning to smol
der and her fac i to pale. The lines
about her mouth hardened, and in her
low voice there w is a quiver of intense
'Aunt Comclii.," she said, "you are
taking a most unwarrantable and un
justifiable liliern not only in repeating
to me all the idle, impertinent gossip of
the neighborhood concerning me and
my affairs, but al-o in taking part in it
yourself. As y u say, this house is
mine, and I shall receive in it whom I
please and whei I please, and treat
them always with such courtesy as in
me lies, so long as they do nothing to
forfeit my esteem. You had better not
intermeddle in my affairs, now or at
any time in the future, for I tell you
frankly that I uc ittaer can nor will en
dure it. As to lay husband, you have
no right to bring np his name in connec
tion with the wicked gossip of a set of
scandalmongers. I can answer to my
own conscience for my actions, and I
am accountable t o no other tribunal."
Miss Cornelia f nailed a little, but 6he
had been too lonis the family tyrant to
snrrender at the rirst charge.
"The man is of low birth," she snap
ped malignantly. -He isn't a fit associ
ate for yon. It's disgraceful, his being
allowed to visit 1 ere.
Mary's eyes bh zed. "If the man were
the son of a scavanger, born in a work
house and reared in the streets and bad
no taint of criiie upon him, I should
treat him like a jrentleman if he came to
my house, so Ion ; as ho conducted him
self like a gentli 'man while in it. That
is all I have to say on the subject, now
or at any other t me;, and as this discus
sion w bootiesB uuu exceeumgiy disagree
able, I must beg you to drop it."
Mrs. Beverley sjwike firmly, emphat
ically; but she reckoned without her
host, or rather without her Cornelia, if
she. counted on a request to drop the
subject ending the discussion. The old
lady was for a moment stunned by the
comprehensive democracy of her niece's
statement, but only for a moment; rally
ing all her forces, she took the field pre
pared to do battle for her own way until
she should rout her adversary or wear
her out. Mary, knowjng by experience
what was coming, settled herself to en
dure with what patience she might.
For twenty minutes the battle raved
and raged and howled, until poor Mary
was driven to wish herself deaf and
dumb and senseless. She stood to her
guns and defended her position gal
lantly; but such contests always ex
hausted her, mentally and bodily, and
the victories she achieved were as de
pressing to her as defeat could have
lieen. In one of the iwuses of the
engagement Miss Cornelia suddenly
brought her heaviest gun, held in re
serve till now, to the front. "What do
you say to this?" she demanded, produc
ing a crumpled envelope from her pocket
and spreading it out right under Mary's
eyes. It bore tho New York postmark,
and was addressed in a neat, clear hand
to "Edward Jackson Anthony, Esq."
"I picked that up in the ravine yester
day afternoon when I was coming home
from my walk. It was so near dusk I
couldn't see the name without my
glasses, so I put it in my pocket and for
got all alxmt it until I put my dress on
this morning. As soon as I laid eyes on
it I remembered that lxy's whole name
-Edward Jackson Anthony. I "ought
to have reinemlx-red it before, liecause
my brother Hector named him after an
old college mate. It was his looking so
different from tho rest and calling him
self Ned that misled me. That yellow
fever report was false, it appears, and
yonr fine "Mr." Anthony resolves himself
into Jack Anthony, our overseer's son.
Will yon forbid him the house now?"
"Xo," responded Mary positively. "1
wonder you dare ask me such a thing,
when you know that his father was
with your brother in that awful charge
at Shibih. and that he saved my hus
band's life at the risk of his own.
Those very brothers tho slothful men
on scorn died, saber in hand, fighting
side by side with IIvtor and Archer
and Randolph an ) Belling for us and
"Perhaps you have known of this all
along?" sneered Miss Corneli.-'., almost
foaming with passion.
"I have known it a good while," ac
knowledged Mary briefly; "not cvei
since I have known him, for Mr. An
thony does not thrust his affairs on any
one. He waited for a fitting opportu
nity, and then he told me, as a gentle
man should. He isn't ashamed of his
origin, and ho has no cause to be; his
father was a poor man and an ignorant
man, but at the same time he was a good
and respectable man."
'And I suppose it is your intention to
introdnce the son of this 'good and re
spectable father into my father's fam
ily!" ranted Miss Cornelia. "But I tell
yon, Mary Beverley, if you do you will
live to repent it. The man is low born
and common and odious, and the very
idea of pntting him in Hector's place is
enough to make the bones of all the
Beverleys for generations turn in their
graves. Yon may stultify yourself with
what excuses yon please for this man,
but I think he has acted most dishonor
ably, and I shall take care to let my
opinion lie known. I wash my hands of
yon and of the whole affair. I will not
remain in this house, either, to see my
family disgraced by such an alliance. I
will not countenance you a single mo
ment. I shall leave for Richmond to
morrow." Mary bowed her bead in acquiescence
in her punishment and endeavored loj--iilly
to hide the look of r-ilief 1 hat stole
from her heart to her face. She was
accustomed to these stormy with
drawals of her annt's countenance, and
was perfectly aware that within a week
she would be in constant receipt of long
and amicable epistles from her, and also
that as soon as Miss Cornelia should
weary of her kindred or should fancy
that they were neglectful, she would
return as though nothing had occurred
to mar the harmony of their intercourse.
Her threats having lost all significance,
had liecomo to Mary but as the crack
ling of thorns under a pot.
Miss Cornelia's determination to
abandon her to her own;siuful ways was
a special relief to Mary at this particu
lar juncture, for the necessity of up
holding the standard of justice and do
ing battle constantly in lxhalf of the
man who loved her and toward whom
she felt resentment for loving her, was
beginning to tell upon her to make her
feel hedged in and comiitted.
She had no desire to berome his cham
pion, to espouse his cause or to place
herself even mentally by his side. She
wished earnestly to hold herself, her
life and her environment separate and
apart from him; and yet her nature, her
abhorrence of all narrowness and in
justice and meanness, was constantly
forcing her into a position which dis
tressed and annoyed her, and which
was, moreover, open to misunderstand
ing and misrepresentation.
Mary had made no vows of eternal
widowhood. She had loved her hus
band with all her heart, faithfully and
fully. When he was taken from her
she mourned loyally. She cherished his
memory with tender, loving care, but
time had brought the inevitable change,
the inevitable passing onward. Hector
was no longer her first thought, her
first consideration; the past had given
place to the present and Hector's sons
reigned in his stead. Wifehood had
merged into motherhood, and the om
nipotence of now transcended in im
portance the retrospective claims of
In this question of a marriage with
Anthony, the thing that offended Mrs.
Beverley most deeply was not the sug
gestion that she was capable of giving
her husband such a successor, bat that
Bhe was capable of giving her sons such
