shire. Sir Leicester had married for j
love, rumor had it. a bit beneath him. !
But my lady showed no signs of that.
She was proud, cold, haughty, they
said, with beauty still, not yet in Its
autumn. Sir Leicester, twenty years
.older, wss a man of worthy presence,
ceremonious and stately. He had
supreme faith In two things, the

Impulsively, as sbe caught sight of
some handwriting oo a legal docu
ment before her. "Wby do you ask?"
queried the keen laeeyer, struck by
her animation and unusual tone.
"Anything to vary this detestable
monotony," she returned, then fainted.
With Mr. Tulklnghorn to wonder at
anything was to investigate it. Why
had my lady asked about that hand
writ ini ? Why had sbe fainted? Per

who had had these papers copied.
could enlighten him. Tee, Snagsby

and up into the squalid chamber. Ne

eyes staring, his body motionless.
"God save us, he Is dead"!" exclaimed
I heard of the Inqueet through Mr.
Guppy, a shrewd young lawyer who
made hopeless calf-love to me. The
only witness who seeimjd to have
known th? dead man was Jo, a for
lorn boy crossing-sweeper, and he
knew little except " ? woe good to
me. > wos." But Mr. Tulklnghorn
docketed Jo for further use?mean

Th? faithful air. Guppy, wham I
could never encourage because?welL
because there waa Dr. Allan Wood

of Jo'? arrest for loitering, and of the
strange story he toTd in explanation
of money found on him. They took
him to Bnagsby'a, and this was Jo's
tal? "They're wot's left. Mr. Snacs

And I done it."
And now why did Snagsby hurry off
to grim old Tulkinghorn with this odd
tale." And why did Mr. Tulkinghorn
at once call In Bucket, a great London
detective, to go and fetch Jo? And
was there any dark import to tbe
bit of melodrama in tbe lawyer*? office
where the waif waa shown a veiled
woman dressed ?? a servant? "It's

gasing raptly at the figure. "I know

Bucket had whispered to Mr. Tulk

with this one's dress on."
Meantime I had had my first Klimpse
of the celebrated Lady Dedlock. My
guardian had Uiken us all down to
Lincolnshire to visit a friend, and it
was in the little parish church I aaw
her. Shall I ever forget the rapid
beating at my heart occasioned by the
look I met as I stood up? Shall I ever
forget the manner in which those;
handsome, proud eyes seemed to j
spring out of their languor and to;
hold min?-? And. very strangely, there ?
wa? something quickened within me. '
associated with the lonely daya at my
godmother's. I was soon to know;
what thia meant, and. curiously
enough, through Mr. Guppy.
My impossible suitor, it seemed, had.
noted a resemblance between myself
and Lady Dedlock. He had learned ?
by chance that my name waa not j
Esther Summereon. but Esther Haw

l-*dy Dedlock he went with his news.
She received him hsughtily. but when
he informed her that he had found;
that hi? cherished Esther wss Esther

Life went on fora while with ?harm

House. Then the dftrkness of a terri

I had recovered my face was so sadly
changed that I hardly knew myself.
To recuperate my guardian took me
down to Lincolnshire, near Chesney

going out on the night of the tragedy
and bow a veiled woman had been
noticed near the laeryer*? room? at
th? ?ame tima "It Is my duty to
tell yoa thi?,** ?aid the detective, "to
prepare yoa for the revelation I am
about t? make. Others know of It,
you must" Then In wa? brought
Horten??, my lady's discharged
French maid (who hated my lady, and
hated Mr. Tulklnghorn still more be
cause he bad refused to pay her hush
money on account of tbe masquerad
ing scene before Jo), and Mr. Bucket
proved her guilty of the murder ana
arrested her on the spot. But they
left my lord stricken ?nth paralysis,
his proud figure beaten to the earth.
Next- I heard that my poor mother
tim/i fled the great London mansion,
leaving a letter for Sir Leicester con
fessing her youthful sham?, but pro
testing her innocence of the morder.
"Full forgiveness; find-?" err?te tbe
baronet on a slate tor Mr. Bucket
Then began the strangest chase that
waa ever known. Bucket came to me,
and we left the inspector*? office la
London before 2 of the morning in a
barouche with postilion and post
horses. Mr. Bucket seated on the box.
A wild, uncanny ride tt was down
by the waterside, over the London
bridges, crossing and recroasing tbe
dark river; out of the empty city
street? into the country white with
snow. On and on with little reit for
two days and more, toiling through
the sleety, slopping roads; snatching
a bit of rest here and there; suddenly
hack to great roaring London, hot on
the scent now, and fetching up on foot
at last at the grim gate of the terrible
paupers' graveyard where my father
wa? buried. And there on the ?teps.
with one arm creeping around a bar
of the gate as If to embrace it. lay ;
my mother cold and dead.
But sunshine came again, as it al-1
way? comes to the young and hopeful. !
My dear guardian brought it the soon-1
er. I had promised him that I would I
be mistress of Bleak Houae some day. j
He had been kind. I was grateful.
I thought Allan Woodcourt emo haa
been absent from England, had grown '
away from me. Returning, he had
spoken too late. Ah. dear guardian, i
how did you know, and wby did you '
take me down Into Yorkshire so soon
to show me a pretty, rustic doll's
house of a cottage on pretext of get

you, my generous, self-sacrificing
guardian, gave It to me and me to
Allan Woodcourt. Thus was I made j
the happy mistress of Bleak House.
Happy In the knowledge that widowed '
