I IFrvm London Trvtn,
Dick Downer was inclined to make a fool
of himself nbout his pretty cousin, Mrs.
Mayblossom. Notwithstanding that sho had
beartlcssly jilted him, his dovotion to her
seemed rather to incroaso than to dimin.
ish. Ho could not, of courso, ignore tho fact
that sho had treatod him most scnndalous.
lyj but his mild resentment faded nwny
to a vanishing point when it becamo appar
ent that his cousin's marriago was likely to
provo an unhnppy ono. Capt. Mayblossom
flcomod a good fellow enough iu his way ;
but howover good a fellow a man may bo,
if he is absolutely devoid of in
como nnd expectations, ho is not
n desirablo holpmato. No doubt,
when she oloped with him, Ada Mayblossom
had counted upon being able to win back the
indulgent affection of her adopted parent,
Dick's father ; but, great as her influence
had been ovor tho old mnn, sho Boon found
thnt ho was vindictively implacable Not
only was this so, but old Job Downer was
furious with his son for whnt ho considered
i his wnnt of spirit nnd proper prido in de
fending his cousin after her treatment of
him. Old Downer was novcr tirod of do
flouncing his nieco in torms which poor Dick
could not sit by nnd listen to without indig-
, nnnt romoustrance, wheroby ho not only
irritnted his father, but innocently helped to
dissipate tho remotest chance of effecting a
reconciliation between tho two.
' In spito of his father's protestation Dick
was n froimont visitor at tho trim little
suburban villa in which his fair cousin and
hor paupor hUBband resided. Doing a simple
minded individual, ho might hnvo gone thero

however, was soon initiated by his couBin
into tho secret of impending trouble, and
sympathetically shared with her the dismal
apprehensions which it involved,
j To most pooplo who, by tho way hod a
pretty shrewd suspicion of tho Captain's in

impervious to the worry of pecuniary embar

that sho deliberately workod upon hor

that Mrs. Mayblossom's motivo was to touch

timo it must bo owned that sho did get money
out of Dick, and took it with a very faint
show of Bcruple.
Dick would willingly havo partod with the
last farthing ho possessed In tho world to
spare her a moment's uneasiness ; but, un
fortunately, the assistance ho could rondor
was of a merely temporary naturo. Though
nominally a partner in his father's business,
his incomo was but that of a poorly paid
clork, and tho old man, knowing his son's
simple habits, and no doubt suspecting tho
destination of his pocket-mouoy, turned a
deaf car to all suggestions of a " rise." For
his own part, old Downor refused emphat
ically to contributo a Binglo farthing to tho
support of his erring nieco and her husband,
and raanifestod so unforgiving a spirit that
after a time Dick abandoned as absolutely

",Whnt is tho matter, Diok?" exclaimed

" l'oor littlo mo ! I foarcd it would bo so,"
murmured tho unlucky girl, nuplying her
handkerchief to her eyes. " Howover," sho
ndded briskly, " I must not give woy, but
rcmomber my child. I havo mode up my
mind what to do, Dick. Fivo years ngo,
when poor papa died, I left somo friends
bohindmo in Australia whon I camo ovor to

" WhntT lcavo England, Ada !" cried Dick,
with a thrill of dismay.
" Yes, Dick ; it will bo hotter for mnny

for a moment at Dick's pained expression

" You will leave no ono behind you, Ada,

And immediately little Mrs. Mayblossom
began to check off noon her slender fingers
n number of items which soon reached a very
substantial total. Dick was considerably
staggored at tho amount, and ruefully con.
fessod that it was far beyond bis modest
means. Tho conversation tborcupon took an
extremely profnic and practical turn, which
renders unnecessary a detailed report of it.
Diok, who could noror withstand his fair
cousin's humors, was easily led to abandon
the sentimental aspect of the situation and
to discuss with her, soberly enough, the im
portant question of ways and means. The
result of the interview was that, having
pledged himself to obtain the requisite fundi
to equip his cousin and her child for the con.
templated voyage, Diok found himself forced
to the unpleasant neoeasity of demanding a
check from his father.
