A TEST OF LOVE.
Baroness Martha Defoe placed her
hand on Lnvin's urm and led hini to
one of the cozy little sitting rooms ad
joining the dancing hall.
You must be angry villi me, fit least
greatly eui prised. I basiriied on at
Ada's urgent inquest. A day after my
arrival I insisted that you should follow
without giving any reason that could
seem adequate to you. It was so very
good of yon to come that I cannot re
frain from expressing my gratitude. To
be , brief, I desire very much that you
6bould marry Ada."
"But, my dear baroness," exclaimed
the young man csritcdly.
"Do you not love her?"
"With all my heart."
"And are you not sure that my little
friend reciprocates your feeling?" i

You are slightly in error about
this, baroness. That Walter Brauiont,
Ada's brother, was n:y dearest friend,

school and afterward to college togeth
er. The friendly relations between Ada'a
brother and myself date back to those
days. When the poor lad lay on his
deathbed, he desired to leave to me a
token of his friendship. By his sister,
Ada, he sent me this ring. Since that
day it has never left my hand. But as
she was merely the executrix of ber
brother's will, I have no right to base
false hopes upon his gift."
"I look upon it as an indication that
Ada loves- you," said Baroness Defoe
musingly. "To make sure of it, I wish
you to sue for her hand in marriage.
Be brave and ask her to dance with you.
The rest will take care of itself."
The baroness dismissed Erwin with a
graceful wave of her pretty hand, then
followed him slowly from afar.
Making his way-through a sea of silk
and satiu trains, Baron Erwin von Gerz
stood at last beforo Ada.
"May heaven bless them," whisper

uence her hauls were folded as if iu

chese Lmeano, which had been an

Tho Baroness Dcfoo informed her
husband of their friend's unsuccessful
suit. "He came too late," she wrote,
"therein lies tho secret of his defeat. "
The Marchrso Lucaiio was not paiuted
in flattering colors. "He is a handsome
man, and chivalrous enough to win any
young and romantic girl's heart. But I
believe that he is insincere and that
mercenary motives have prompted him
to ask for her hand.
Tho baroness was not alona in her es
timate of the handsome inareheso's char
acter. Her opinion was 6hared by many
of Ada s friends.
Ada Bramout's father was a man of
sterling qualities, who had made his
way iu the world by dint of energy and
business sagacity. Ho was considered a
very rich man. His integrity and prac
tical knowledge of human nature had
never been questioned, and many were
therefore surprised that he should give
Ada into the keeping of a man who was
at best considered to be n fortune hunter.
Though she could not confide to Ada
tho thoughts that disturbed her, Bar
oness Defoe, with her usual tact, touched
lightly upon the events of the night
soon after Ada had dismissed her guests
and joined her friend iu her room.
Ada's face betrayed agitation when
Erwin von Gerz'e name was mentioned,
but she regained her self control.
"I do not deny that I like Erwin
Baron Gerz, I mean," answered tho
young girl. "I like him very much in

cumstances had brought us together
sooner, but ho lived most of the time in
the country and showed 110 inclination
for more than formal acquaintance.
How could I guess that ho desired to
marry me? When he asked me at last,
it was too late. Tho marchese had my
word, and I saw no reason for al
tering my decision. You know, it is
papa's pet scheme to have his daughter

thought that only too readily suggested
itself. "If I furnish you with proof
that he is faithless, will you brcatwith
him then?" asked the baroness.
"How will you do it?"
"Trust me," whispered the baroness.
Next morning the marchese departed
on one of his periodical journeys.
While the marchese was absent Mr.
Bramont paid Erwin a visit. As he was
not aware of the latter a suit for his
daughter's hand, this visit was but the
natural outcome of the kindly feelings
he had always entertained for his son's
schoolmate and friend. He returned

from him, advising his fiancee that

loans of various large sums of money.

When he returned at last, he was as
amiable as ever. He relied upon his
power over Ada, whom be had fascinat
ed by bis dashing exterior. On the day
of his arrival at tho Bramont home the
Baroness Defoe came over for a day's
visit with her friend.
The mareheso asked his betrothed
how sho had spent her time during his
absence, and Ada told him that she had
been very much interested in a volume
of Italian fairy tales which had acci
dentally fallen into her hands.
"How kind of you to devote your at
tention to t ho literature of my native
laud!" smiled the marchese.
"One of these stories has been es

him to captivate the heart of a youug

love her as ho should, caring only to
possess her wealth. Her innocence and
