CHAPTER XVIII. ffl' HE livelong day Lady Standlsh had not beheld the light of her lord's countenance. Upon their last meeting, his beharlor to the bishop having roused in her gentle bosom a feeling as near ly akin to resentment as it was capa ble of harboring, she would not be (she liad resolved) the one to seek him first. She had, therefore, passed the day in her own apartment in writing to her mother and in practicing her last song to the harp a piece of audacity and in dependence which she expected would Lave goaded Sir Jasper into an instant" Interview with herself. When the dusk rose, however, and the candles were brought In by the round eyed handmaid, whose ministra tions replaced those of Megrim (the lat terwas still '.packing: and geemed like to take some weeks in the process), and the said round eyed damsel imme diately began to inform her mistress that Sir Jasper had set forth in his coach, Lady Standish's small flame of courage began to flicker woefully. "Alone?" she asked In white dismay. "Please, my lady, Mr. Bowles was driving, and there was Mr. Thomas behind, my lady." "Pshaw, girl! Had Sir Jasper no friend. with him?" "Oh, yes, my lady; there was Mr. Stafford, a box of pistols, Mr. Toombs says, and a bag of swords." "Heavens!" cried Lady Standish. "Again! And whither went they?" "Please, my lady, Mr. .Toombs says they took the London read." Fain would the round eyed maid have lingered and told more, but Lady Standish waved ber hand faintly, and bo dismissed her. An hour later Lydia, brisk with Im portance and sparkling with conscious power, found the much tried soul sunk In a sort of apathetic weariness of misery. "Mistress Bellairs love, my lady, and will you read this letter at once?" Lady Standish took the letter from the black mittened hand. 'Tlease, my lady, 'tis of the utmost importance," said Lydia, "and I was to wait and see if I could not be of use to you." Something magnetic in the girl's lively tone gave impetus to Lady Standish's suspended energies. She broke the seal. My sweet child wrote Mistress Kitty if you want to know what has become of your husband you win instantly tane a chaise and start eft for the Black Bear at Devises. Your true friend, K. B. Fostscriptum. Do not go alone. Get some old nag or possiDie, iaay Aiaria Prideaux) to accompany you. You will find her in the assembly rooms. She's as curious as our first mother you can eas ily persuade her. This is good advice! "I am much too III," cried Lady Standish, upon a moan. "Tell your mistress," said she, looking vaguely in Lydla's direction, "that indeed 'tis quite impossible I should do as she . suggests." "Very well, my lady," said Lydia cheerfully. "I'm sure I shouldn't trouble myself if I was you. Gentle men must have their diversions, I al ways say. If ladies would but shut their eyes a little more, 'twould be for the peace of all parties. Indeed, my lady, though my mistress would be angry to hear me say so, I'd go to bed, for you look sorely tired, and Sir Jas per '11 be glad enough to come home by and by." "Wretched girl," cried Julia, and her eyes flashed, "what dost thou mean?" "La, now!" said Lydia, all innocence, "how my tongue do run away with me, to be sure! Why, my lady, what can a poor servant maid like me know of the goings on of gentles? 'Tis but a' few, words of gossip here and there." j - "Oh, merciful Jieaven, what gossip mean you?" ' "My lady, have a sip of volatile; do! Oh, my mistress would be like to kill me if she knew what I've been say ing! 'Poor Julia, she cried when she got the news. 'Poor Julia, my poor confiding Julia! Oh, the villain, the( monster! " "And whom did she refer to?" "Lud, madam, how can I tell? 'It shall not ber cries my. mistress, and down she sits and writes off to you, as If for bare life." Lady Standish, rising .from her seat, rushed to the light, and with starting eyes and bristling hair began to read afresh her fond Kitty's missive. "La, my lady," cried the guileless Ly dia, "you're all of a shake! I'd never be that upset about Sir Jasper. Why, If your la'ship '11 allow me to say so, all Bath knows how jealous he is of your la'ship; and certain that shows a hus band's affection." "True," cried Julia; "that's true, girl!" "And as for those who say, my lady, that some men are so artful that they put on a deal of jealousy to cover a deal of fickleness, I'd despise myself if I was to pay heed to such mean sus piciousness." "My cloak!" cried Lady Standish. "Megrim, Susan"' She flew to the hall. "My cloak; let a post chaise be ordered Immediately!" "If I may make so bold, my lady," said Lydia, retiring gracefully with the conviction of a well accomplished errand, "don't forget to take Lady Maria with you, if you can. The gen tlemen have such a way of turning tables on us poor women at least," said the damsel demurely, "so I've heard said. And 'tis a ' long, lonely road, my lady!" , CHAPTER XIX. M ISTKESS BELLAIRS Took Tier departure early. Attired in unusually sober colors, floating in an atmosphere of chastened matronly dignity, she had shown her self this evening, thought Lord Verney, quite worthy to be his mother's daugh ter-in-law. "Monstrous dull." Lady Flyte called Co medy EGERTON CASTLE Pride of Jennico" BY EGERTON CASTLE Beyond a gavot with ixrd Verney she had not danced, but sat for half an hour on the chair next to Lady Maria, who, presented her with the vision of 'a shoulder blade which had seen better days and an impenetra bility of hearing which baffled even Kitty's undaunted energy. When Verney had tucked her up in her sedan, she insisted upon the young er allowing her to proceed home tin- j3Corted. "Indeed," said she, "I pray nay, I order you. People talk so in this giddy place, and have you not your aged aunt to wait upon? I am sure," said Mistress Kitty piously, "that your dear mother would wish it thus." He submitted. He had no doubt that his mother would indeed entirely con cur with such sentiments, and blessed his Kitty for her sweet reasonableness "Good night, then," she said, thrust ing her pretty face out of the window with a very tender and gentle smile. "Good night," he replied, with his young, gracefully awkward bow. She fully expected to hear his foot step pursue the chairmen, for she had not been able to refrain from throwing her utmost fascination Into that part ing look. But nothing broke the silence of the parade save the measured slouching tramp of the bearers. At once disappointed and relieved. she threw herself back in her seat. "What, not a spark left," said she, "of the fine flame 'twas so easy to kin Kitty found it quite natural to scream. die this morning!. 'Tis the very type of the odious British husband. Let bim be but sure of you, and the crea ture struts as confident of his mastery as the cock among his hens. Lord, she shuddered, "what an escape I have had! We women are apt to fancy that very young men are like very young peas, the greener, the tenderer, the better; whereas,'! said the lady, with a sigh, "they are but like young wine, crude where we look for strength, all head and no body and vastly poor upon the palate." She sighed again and closed her eyes, waiting for the moment of the impend ing Catastrophe with a delicate com posure. In truth, Mr. O'Hara conduct ed the performance with so much brio as to convince Mistress Bellairs that he had had previous experience of the kind. At the dark appointed corner the two muffled individuals, each selecting his own astonished chairman and enlacing him with overwhelming brotherly affec tion, seemed such thorough paced ruf fians in the dim light that Mistress Kitty found it quite natural to scream and even had some difficulty in keep ing her distressful note down to the pitch of necessary discretion. And her heart fluttered with a sen sation of fear, convincing enough to produce quite a delightful illusion, when she found herself bodily lifted out of her nest and rapidly carried through the darkness in an irresistibly close and strong embrace. "Oh, oh. n?!!" cried the lady in a modulated : viuence of little shrieks. "Merciful heavens," she thought to herself, with a great thump of the heart, astonished at her abductor's silence, "what if it should be some one else after all?" But the next instant the rich brogue of a tender whisper in her ear dis pelled all doubt- "You've forgotten the scratches, my darling," said O'Hara as he laid her preciously upon the cushions of the chaise. Here Mr. Mahoney and his comrade which latter bore a curious resem blance in build and gait to one of the sporting marquis' own celebrated glad iators came running up i:o take their seats. In leaped O'Hara, the coach man lifted his whip, and the team that Phoebus might have envied started up the length of Milsom street in style. The chairmen, drawing their breath with some difficulty after their spell of strangulation, stared in amazement at the clattering shadow as it retreated up the steep street, and then back and in fresh amazement at the yellow guineas which had been pressed and now glinted In their palms. Presently a simultaneous smile over spread their honest countenances. "A queer go," said the first, easing and readjusting his necklace. "Lud, the little madam did squeak !" "I'd let them all squeak at the same price," said the other,' pocketing his coin and resuming his place in. rear of the sedan. "But come, Bill; we must go report this 'orrible crime. Rabbit me, what's that?" A blood curdling wail had risen out of the night, from his very elbow, it seemed. It circled in frightful cadence and died away in ghostlike fashion. "'T-'tis but a sick cat, I hope," stam mered the first chairman, and dived -t mt t "O-o-o-obr moaned the voice. "Oh, my mistress f There was a flutter, a patter, and. "Merciful heavens, you wretches!" cried Mistress Bellairs de voted abigail, emerging like a gust of wind from the blackest shadow of Bond street and falling upon the near est chairman with a well aimed flap of her shawl, followed up by a couple of scratches. "Wtetches, monsters you've let my mistress be carried 'away Oh, heavens, my unhappy ml tress!" cried Lydia, and rent the night .with her cris. Mistress Kitty's chair had no soonei left the precincts of the assembly rooms when my Lady Standish's posl chaise came clattering round the cor ner. Lord Verney, who was just about to go In again, arrested by curiosity, turned to wonder at a visitor who ar rived in so unwonted a conveyance. Recognizing Lady Standish, he was somewhat abashed and somewhat dis concerted, but felt he could do no less , than advance through the crowd ot foot and chair men and offer his hand. "Oh, pray, Lord Verney," said she in a strenuous whisper, "conduct me to your aunt, for I have great need of her help and counsel. Take me to her at once," 6aid the poor lady in ever Increasing agitation. They passed through the elegant throng, she unconscious alike of recog nition, comment or titter, he feelin to his boy's marrow the sensation cre ated by her traveling gear and dis traught appearance. No need of an ear trumpet for Lady Maria now. The dowager recovered her powers of hearing "with almost mi raculous celerity. "Ob, Lady Maria," said Lady Stand ish, holding out both her hands, and incontinently she burst into tears. "Oh, Lady Maria, Sir Jasper has left me. I am in sad trouble. I'm told be has gone to Devizes. I must follow him. You are my mother's oldest friend. Will you give me the support cf j our company and protection?" There was quite a buzz in the inter ested circle. Lady Maria nodded round, charmed with the situation. Bristling with delighted curiosity, she was more like Mistress Kitty's cockatoo than ever. "Poor young thing, poor young thing," she said, patting Lady Stand ish's hand. "Your' mother's oldest friend, quite so quite right and proper to come to me. And so Sir Jasper's left you; so Sir Jasper's gone; and with whom, my dear?" Lady Maria fondly believed that she spoke these last words in a gentle aside, but never had her sepulchral bass resounded more sonorously. Lady Standish's faint cry of shocked dis claimer was, however, completely drowned in the fresh rumor, lacerated by shrill feminine shrieks, which now arose in the vestibule of the assembly rooms and rapidly advanced. "My .Lord Verney! My mistress Where is my Lord Verney ?" wailed the distraught Lydia, who thoroughly en joyed her role. A hundred voices took up the cry; the astounding news passed from group to group: "The pretty widow has been carried off! Mistress Bellairs has been abducted!" And then, in counter clamor and antiphone, "And my Lady Standish is looking for Sir Jasper." Meanwhile, before Lord Verney, dumb and suffocating under a variety of emotions. Lydia, wringing her hands and with the most thrilling notes of tragic woe (as nearly copied from Mis tress Susannah Cibber as she could re member), narrated her tristful tale. "He flung my unhappy mistress, swooning and shrieking, into the chaise. And 'drive like the devil, cries he in a voice of thunder to the coachman. Til flay you with your own whip and hang you to your own shaft, says he, 'if you're not in Devizes before mid night! " "Devizes!" cried Lady Standish, with a scream. Hanging on Lydia's utter ance, every word of which confirmed the awful suspicion that had entered her heart, she now could no longer doubt the real extent of her misfortune. "Oh, Lord Verney, save my mistress!" Lydla's pipe dominated the universal chorus with piercing iteration. And now Lady Maria's bass struck in again. "What did I say?" cried she triumphantly. "Nevvy, you'd better go to bed; you're well out of her, Julia, my dear, don t rami; we can catch them at Devizes yet. Some one tell that wench to stop that screeching! Julia, come! You've got the chay, I understand. Fortunately my house is near. We shall just call for Burrell and make him ride behind with his blunderbuss. Child, if you faint, I wash my hands of the whole affair. We'll nip them, I tell you, if you'll only brisk up." I won't faint," said Lady Standish, setting her teeth. Lord Verney suddenly awoke to the fact that he had been grievously In jured and that he was in a towering pas sion. Spluttering, he demanded venge ance of gods and men. Post chaise. ho, and pistols, forthwith! "My sword!" cried he, feeling for the blade which, however, according to the regulations enforced by the Immortal master of Bath ceremonies, was absent from its natural post on his noble hip in this polite assembly. Come with me," cried Captain Spicer, clapping his patron on the shoulder in a burst of excitement. "I'll stand to you, of course, lad! You'll iwant a witness. We'll have Sir Jas per's liver on the spit before crow of cock!" CHAPTER XX. HE side rays of the chaise lamps "played on the widow's soft, saucy face, threw beguiling shadows under her eyes and fleeting dimples round those lips that seemed perpetually to invite kisses. Denis O'Hara, with one arm extended above her head, his hand resting oper on the panel, the other hand still clasp ing the handle of the door, gazed upoi the woman who had placed herself sc completely in his power, and felt smit ten to the heart of him with a tender ness that was Avell nijfh pain. "How beautiful you are!" babbled the Irishman atr last. Mistress Bellairs suddenly sat up with an angry start. It was as if she had been stung. "Heavens T' cried she, thrusting her forefingers into her ears. "Mr, ffl nara, it you say that again I shall jump out of the chay." Her eyes flashed. She looked capable of fulfilling her threat upon the spot. "Me darling heart," said he, and bad perforce to lay his hands upon her to keep her still. "Sure, what else can 1 say to you, with my eyes upon your angel face?" Apparently the lady's ears were not so completely stopped but that such words could penetrate. Tis monstrous," said she in hot in dignation, "that I should go to all this trouble to escape from the bleating of that everlasting refrain, and have it buzzed at me," she waxed Incoherent under the sense of her injuries, "thus at the very outset !" r "My dear love," said he humbly. capturing the angry, gesticulatin band, "sure me heart's so full that it's just choking me." ane xeir. mm treniDie oesiae ner as he spoke. Now the trembling lover was not of those that entered into Mistress Kitty's scneme or existence. She had, per haps, reckoned, when planning her es capade, upon being made to tremble a little herself. She had certainly reckoned upon a journey this evening that should be among the most memo rable in the annals of her impressions. OHara bashful! O'Hara tongue tied! O'Hara with cold fingers that hardly dared to touch hers! O'Hara, the gay rattler, with constrained lips! This was an O'Hara whose existence she had not dreamed of, and for whose acquaintance, to say the truth, she had small relish. What! Were all the accessories of the play to be so perfect, and was the chief character to prove such a lamen table failure in his part? What! Was she, Kitty Bellairs. to be carried off by the most notorious man in Bath, only to find him as awkward, as dumb, as embarrassed with the Incomparable situation as the veriest greenhorn? "It shall not and it cannot be," said she to herself. And thereupon she changed her tactics. "Why," said she aloud, with the coo ing note of her most melting mood, "I protest one would think, sir, that you were afraid of me." "Aye, Kitty," said he simply; "and so I am." "Oh, fie!" she laughed. "And how have I alarmed you? Think of me, said she, and leaned her face toward him with a smile of archest wit, "not as a stranger, but as a sister, as a dear, dear cousin." His eyes flamed back at her. ner merry mood was as incongruous to his sudden, storm serious growth of pas sion as the gay lilt of a tambourine might be to a solemn chant. "I think of you," he said, and there was a deep thrill in his voice, "as my wife that is to be." "Now, indeed, is the murder out!" she cried. "Oh, you men are all alike. As lovers all fire, capsicums, Indian suns! Bottles of Sillery always burst ing! Torrents not to be stemmed. But, lo, you let the lover once fancy himself the husband, merciful heav ens, what a change! For fire we have ice; for the red, biting capsicum, the green, cool cucumber; for joyous, foaming Sillery, the smallest ale. Small ale? Nay, toast and water!" cried Mis tress Kitty, lashing herself to finer frenzy. "And if the mere sense of your security thus transforms the lover in you, what a pleasing prospect, Indeed, lies before the wedded wife! No, thank you, sir," said the lady, and pushed the petrified O'Hara with an angry foot. "I have had one wintry toast-and-water husband, and that shall be enough for my lifetime." And In the very midst of her Indig nation: "This will," she thought, "simplify the parting at Devizes." But no whit was her wrath thereby abated, that the fool 6hould have spoiled her pretty ride. For a moment after the angry mu sic of her voice had ceased to ring there was a breathless silence, broken only by the straining progress of horses and chaise up the sides of an other hill. Then O'Hara broke forth into a sort of roar of wounded tender ness, passion and ire. Flinging him self back upon his seat, he seized her wrist in a grip, fierce, yet still gentle under its fierceness. "How dare ye!" cried the man. How dare ye doubt my love! Sure, flames are cold compared to me this minute! May my tongue wither in my mouth, may it be cut out of my jaws and never speak a word of sense again, may I be struck dead at your feet, Kitty, for the rest of my life, if it's not gospel truth! Listen to my heart," he cried, with yet greater vehemence, pressing her captive hand against his breast "isn't it 'Kitty, Kitty, Kitty,' that it's saying? Sure, it's nothing but a bell, and your name is the clapper in it! And you to be railing at me be cause it's so much I have to say that never a word can I bring out! Oh,' pursued Mr. O'Hara, waxing louder and more voluble stilL "sure what could I say with my heart in my mouth stopping the way? Look at it, you cruel woman. Isn't it all yours, and aren't you sticking pins into it for sheer devilment this minute? God foi give me that I should say such a thing of an angel! Look at it now, Kitty. Is that the heart of a cucumber? If you had said a love apple itself Och, indeed, it's the real cool cucumber I am, and it's toast and water that's running through my veins like flre! Laugh, madam; laugh; it's a grand joke entirely. Make a pincushion of the cucumber! See, now, Js that small ale that bursts from the wounds? Up on my soul," he cried, arrived at the 'height of his tempest, "I have a mind to show you the color of it!" He reached violently toward the back seat for his sword as he spoke, and Mistress Bellairs, suddenly arrest ed in her delighted paroxysm, was suf ficiently convinced of the strength of his feelings to stop him with, clinging hands and clamoring little notes of terror. "O'Hara! Madman! For God's sake, Denis!" "Ah," cried he, "it's not hot enough I was for ye! It's the cold husband you're afraid of. Ah, Kitty, you've stirred the sleeping dog; you mustn't complain now if you can't put out the fire So saying, he turned and clasped her In an embrace that left her scarcely breath to scream, had she so wished, and had, indeed, the kisses which he rained upon her lips allowed ber space iq which to nlace a orotest.

"Mr. O'Hara," she gasped, at length released, fluttering like a ruined dove, all in anger and fear, "such treatment! For a gentleman, sir, you 'strangely forget yourself." She laid ber hand on the window strap. "Xot a word, sir, or r'will Instantly give the order to turn back." "Oh," cried the unhappy lover, and tore at his hair with desperate fingers, tilling the ambient air with flakes of powder which shone silvery in the moonlight. "You drove me to it. Ah, don't be frightened of me, my darling. That hurts me the worst of all. I'm quiet now, Kitty." CHAPTER XXI. N the white moonlight Sir Jas per Standish paced up and down the cobble stoned yard with as monotonous a restless I ness as if be had been hired this night to act the living sign at the Bear inn. Devizes. Each time he passed the low open window of the inn parlor, in which sat Mr. Stafford, by the dim yellow light of two long tongued tallow candles, the baronet would pause a moment to ex change from without a few dismal words with his friend. "Tom Stafford," said Sir Jasper for the twentieth time, "how goes the hour?" Slowly, friend," said Stafford, con sulting with a yawn the most exact of three watches at his fob. "To be precise, 'tis two minutes and one-third since I told you that it wanted a quar ter of midnight." "What," said the injured husband, what if they should have taken an other road?" "Then," cried Stafford, "I shall only have to fight 3-ou myself, for this most insufferably dull evening that you have made me spend, when I was due at more than one rendezvous, and had protrfised pretty Bellairs the first min uet" J "It shall be pistols," said Sir Jftsper, following his own thoughts "wSn a sort of gloomy lust.
