"What do ,you want that money

scarcely a flutter.
She knew the sort of mi>n she had ' ^
to deal with. He looked at her calm- |

She moved to the door, and stoooed ,
for lior sunshade. The child was still
playing on the step, and looked up as i
the girl camo out. There was a i
ptrango expression on the pretty baby
face. j
With her happiness still so great, s
so wonderful about her, this sudden j
upheaval of all that degrading past j
was too horrible.

"To see me?" repeated Enid, blanky.
"There must be a mistake!

"No, there is no mistake," said a
oice at the door, and a slender form
n a long black coat, with a bonnet

Mrs. Lawson stared to think the
visitor had walked after her in this
Enid stood motionless for a monent,
then her surprise found speech.
"Dorothy! You here?"
"Yes. I have come the very instant

Mrs. Lawson took the hint and

"Phew! What an atmosphere!

Dorothy flung back her veil, and pullnc

"I am (futte well," she said, witn a

She felt, there was something benind

tier cousin to her humble home.
"What aru you doing?" Dorothy
Slanced round the room and saw the

Dorothy smiled. She was silent
only two or three seconds, but her
mind was busy in that time.
"I must not push her, but lead
her," she thought. Out loud she said
gently: k
"I have no wish to interfere with
your life, dear, but I have come to entreat
you in person to l^t nt<> persuade
you to come and stay with me for a
little while, just to get some health
and strength. After that you shall

Enid gazed at the exquisite faco
opposite, seeming to her so doublv

written so clearly on it.
"Stay with you!" she repeated,
Slowly. "Do you really mean this,

"Don't say another word about it,"
die said, gently. "I was ill for a litilo

had insisted on going back to his
lodgings to fetch some jewelry that

"Oh, Gervais; tho most surprising
thing has happened since you went!''
Dorothy cried after she had expended
all the superlative adjectives in her
possession over the quaint jewels, and
gratified the old man by her simplicity
and charm of manner. "While
Virginie was buying the celebrated
velvets she needed she nie.t Enid, who
was in rather an anxious state. It
