Mut It was not vulgar; it wns tint coarse; it was not I repugnant tc rhe most fastidious ear. Neither was Lord Carnoustle himself a person t 1." altogether despised. II" had hot, lt ls true, any remarkable mental or physical end w meiits; but be acted BtUrdll) np t" Ills ?-wu views of righi and wrong; he lived among lils people; knew their lives; with his own ear hearkened to their petitions, and wllh lils own bund supplied their wants. Moreover, wet or line, winter or summer, the grlr.7.le.l wh'skers of thc tough old loni were to be seen over the ledge of his oWll "loft" in the parish church on Sunday morning; and every Shepherd on his farms, and every fisherman in the cottageH along the shore, knew that no empty place ever escaped the small ferreting eyes which peered to right and left, and raked the building through and through before the be" ceased ringing. Lord Carnoustle waa always la lils seat ,i full ten minutes before the minister ascended the pulpit, and he did not consider that period >f time wasted. At home, however, there was another "master, and my lord was only vassal in chief. It ls n-t essy to describe such a personage SS Lady Carnoustle. One can hardly say what she was. sh-- wns not one kind of woman, she was not another sometimes it seemed as though nothing were left for her to bt, Perhaps the real key to baa character lay la the fact that her health was uncertain, and she had for Lng permitted herself to hu what her health dictated.

But whether genial or fretful, cross or smiling, I.adv Carnoustle was dutifully minstered to by her daughters, and smartly served by the house? hold. L >ng usage hal enabled , ne and all to fake 'her men al temperature v\lth halt an eye, ere any request was made, oe any fact announced: and in particular the two elder 'young ladlee." aa Louies and J.atina w.-r.- still Invariably termed In the house, were perfectly satisfied that every? thing th'-lr mother said or did was for the best. They hao grown np In an atmosphere impreg* na) i arith this Idea Louisa was by nature a docile creature. As we know, she was nu longer in her first, nor even In her second, youth. The insouciance "f the teens had given place to the full-formed virtues of maturity, and these again betrayed the faint dawnings of mellowness. Yet so peace, fully hal each decade passed, that lt had scarce left Its trace on her outward appearance. Her figure was still wdl proportioned In Its outlines, if it had lost something of the plump* ness "f youth: her skin was as fair and soft, if a shade less delicately tin trA than it once had been; her hair, dressed somewhat more care? fully, scat'-ely showed that it was a trill..- leas luxuriant. Neither had the mind altered At fifteen I. mlsa had been a musician, a songstress, a col? lect,,r ,.f manus'-r'.pt ditties, and a voluminous transcriber thereof; a' ti\ "-an.'.-thirty she col? lected, sang, nnd transcribed as .ardently aa ever. Dally sh- practised Beales anl < nt-dosa at the accustomed lr ur; and the arrival of a fresh sonatina was still the interest lt had ever t? n Louisa did not read the newspapers through. Sis -ead the leading article*) ami the "Court Cir? cular," but explained that her dear parents did nm thfnic fndlacrliuluata ne**-"?pn.p*-r reading ... for plrls. There were many things in the news? papers which ene might come upon before one knew, if one were in the habit of reading promla "ii iualy. Indeed dear mamma thought most of the lit? erature of th- day pernld us. and dlscourag-l lt* being hr night to Cut. castle. Joanna and she however, permitted to real "Hiaekwood," should that magazine come in their way. When Lady Carn lustle drove round to cal! at One or other of the three h uses which com ; th.- neighborhood, Louisa had the seat beside her mother. lt was considered that as tl.- eldest daughter of Mu- family this was her rightful place; hut she never exceeded her privileges; sh,- neither took charge of the card eas,- nor Issued directions to the footman. That Lady Carnoustle would haw stigmatised hs "Usurping," and Lad) Carnoustle, ill or w-U, kept guard against "usurping" in all Its branches. J".no a. th- next sister, may be more brletly d-.ii; with, sh.- was Louisa with variations. In appearance they were alike, and they dr.MM d alike in every particular. Bach had a pet bird, but LoillSla's wa- a canary. Joanna's a bull tin -h. In lieu of playing and singing. Joanna dr.-iv .md Sketched. If Louisa did red care to make calls. Joanna occupied the vacant I sat Both work.-1 for the poor, and taught In the school, and trimmed th.- Bower glasses, and re? frained from promiscuous reading .f the news pap.-r, anl adhered to d-ar mamma's Judgment in everything. And they ought nut tu have been ridiculed for lt. but they were. It was n t their fault that they were made to limp through life in swaddling-clothes, tied and bound al every turn. No one had ever undone th.- ban lag's; boa Were th.- poor babes to undo them f a- themselvea? They were but gre*) j t thetlc Infant-, kr. wing nothing and caring to kn-'W nothing of life and Its problems; the walla of a nunnery could nol have more solemnly shut out th.- reaiiths of existence than did the great gates nf Carnoustle castle. And whit ab.ut Mina?dear little Mina ? Mina who gave les*, trouble than any one, who hardly ever needed to be spoken to or rebuked, and who wis the meekest of lambkins beneath supervision and prohibition? Mina never "usurped" nor "pounced upon" her mother's prerogatives; Mina was th.- simplest, sweetest child s.isily guided. I ' willingly led. Kwn Joanna hal once been ruffled In spirit, and hal gone about for a whole day muttering to herself because her mother had declined to discuss with her theology, .hanna had borrowed k of sermons, which had turned out, to Lady Carnouatle'a horror, to be "broad"?"shock Ingly broad," according to her ladyship's views? and Incensed at having been thus outwitted b) a pious volume which she had thought might safely be perused without her intervention, she had vented her Irritation somewhat unreason? ably ,.ii the be.il of Joanna. Joanna, as we say, bad grumbled under her breath, and terrible expletives In the stile of "Thirty-three years old'" and "No longer a schoolgirl!" had been i.".ii-.i '.. escape her. It had been a sad experience. Lady Carnoustle i ! afterward; and she hoped that Mina might never Ivar ab ut lt. There w.-r- mai f things that Mina was never supposed to hea: about.

As it was, they con? sidered them*.ives privileged. Their mother talked r,. them as .she dbl not do to Mina?that was enough. And how about Mina's looks? At carnoustle she was considered very beauti? ful Indeed, and rer> fascinating. In other placee she was spoken ,.f as "the pretty Miss Carn.-us ile," and "th.- pretty Miss Carnoustle" she had been f.r a food many years, while still re? garded as th. bab] "f the family by her own peo? ple. Mina nev-r seemed to know anything or to do anything amiss. lier blue limpid eyes wara dreamy with poetic musings; for she was known, to be a lover of poetry, an absorber of odes and Invocations, lier gentle movements never brought her to grief, never ran her Into mischief. She clashed with no one's prejudices, ran counter to no one's opinions. If she put out her hand to take any. thing for herself, ahe did lt so softly that the motion was almost unperceived. In consequence, lt was the household creed that Mina was a tender floweret, on whom no rough wind was ?ver to blow, and whose MOOBI was to be Jealously guarded from contact with every sort of untoward circumstance, 4To be continued^ <
