ONLY A SUMMER VISIT.
Pangerflehl Park was a fine country place
belonging to the Panbys. and it looked Its l>est
one fine summer afternoon that came in a spell
of set-fatr summer weather. It had been coincident
now with the visit to Pangerfleld I'ark
of Lady ^ iolet Kneller, who, having lately
formed a friendship with one of the Danby
glrls. had come to stay with her friend and
make the acquaintance of the rest of the family.
T7.e present owner of Dangerfleld Park, hand
'Oiiif Howard Panby, had tone up to Scotland
a fortnight ago to favor the grouse with his
presence but three stalwart brothers yet remained
to do honor to I*ady Violet's visit. Mrs.
Panby wa- a fond. Indulgent mother to them
all. but duly imbued with a belief In the perfection
and general infallibility of her son Howard.
Her two daughters were amiable girls, who have
little to d-? with these pages. The time had
gone ho i|u:<*kly over the heads ot these young
people, and they had been so merry and intimate
ami happy together, it would l.ave l>een
curious if all hearts had come out of it unscathed.
It' further reason for peril was wanting.
Lady Violet was beautiful, bright, and
good: an only child, and doubly orphaned since
her early childhood: and. although the family
estates had p:issed with the title to lier father's
next male heir, she was possessed of a tine
property In one of the fairest of Welsh valleys.
and was therefore an heiress of no small
Importance.
Little Indeed, however, does heiress-ship
count beside beauty and goodness in the e\esof
an unspoiled boy of twenty: therefore let no suspicion
resi on the na;ne of Lionel, youngest son
of the house of Panby. who was quite hopelessly
in love with Lad> Violet. His passion gave the
family much amusement, and l-ady Violet found
no other treatnient of her lover possible than to
pet him and laugh at him alternately. It answered.
however, perfe. tly: his devotion made
its own happiness: and having closed with the
rebuffs of fortune, and recognized the hopelessness
of his suit, the general laugh against him
was powerless to hurt'and he was even beguiled
into joining it himself.
The next son Kdward. had only a second affection
free to offer. It \ en 115 herself had appeared
on the scenes, his first U'ing centered in a pack
of otter hounds of w hlch he was the joyful niau- j
ter. He v.hs Tall of deference for the sex. how- ;
ever, and had greatly enjoyed having Lady Violet
at his side when he drove Howard's four-in- i
hand here and there during the last fortnight, '
Rending them cheerily along the level roads w ith
a secret pride in his own skill in their manipulation.
The eldest of tlie trio v.as stalwart like
his brothers, as far as Inches and proportion
went, but lie hud been delicate from boyhood,
and so often face to face with the arch-enemy,
that it was a niaiter of no small surprise to him
sometimes to find himself now. past thirty, still
walking in the flesh abour the park at home. In
Howard's absence, he had taken the trouble of
the various comings and goings of late on bis
own shoulders, and tiie result liad given universal
satisfaction.
This afternoon Lady Violet and tie. returnine !
from a w;'.lk. came out through a bend of thg ;
fath into sunshine froin the shade of some trees,
t was h favorite walk, and one that wound
round a craggy hill of no great eminence, rising
Close to one side of the Hail.
Masses o: foxglove made the hillside bright
to-day. and where the road at Intervals wound
Into ravines were groups of mountain ash-trees,
the bevries of which had yellow id 011 the way to
redness.
Gerard was smooth-shaven all to a thick,
brown moustache. His eyes were blue and remarkably
expressive, but seif-oontrol had so far
triumphed in his character that the most usual
expression of his face was one of a nonchalant
anil halt-amused observation of the wavs ami
doings of h's fellow-creatures. Lady Violet's
characteristic expression, on the contrary, was
one of sweet earnestness, while her smile, when
it came, was so swift, sympathetic and bright,
as to be especially alluring. She was not smiling
now; over her beautiful gray eyes the lashes
w ere drooped, and a compression of pain was
about her lips.
" I cannot believe that doctors are so useless
as to be unable to deal with jour case." she exClaimed.
" \ ou should not speak ot your health
as you are doing now."
"Why not:" said he. I>octors are divided !
Into two classes, the hopeful arid the despairing.
I have tried both, and considerably prefer th?*
despairing. They give one the chance now and
then of a pleasant surprise, w hile I have been
ready before now t< administer slow poison to ;
the hopeful fellow* in return for the disappointments
to wlticii they have laid me oj?en."
" Kut oy your ow n showing." said Lady Violet
eagerly, "they have been in the main more
right than wrong. Y011 may yet have many !
years before you of usefulness in the world."
Gerard gave a little laugh. "I cannot flat- j
ter myself that the world would be much poorer
if my w ork in it came to an end." he said.
"My brothers have each careers cut out for
them. Howard has tiii? place and the duties ol"
a tended proprietor to attend to. Ted has de- :
voted himself to field-sports, and 1 do not de- I
pise them as a profession, whatever the w orld
in general may do. Lionel aims at being un ;
army doctor, and will. 1 think, do well in that
line. But tor myself, all my earlier years were
passed In fufiie attempts to enter one profession
after another in defiance of health: and. now,
baving failed in all. thanks to that ever-occurring
Impediment, and not possessing brains
enough to write a book or discover a new I
volar system, I should be rather a fool to sup- j
pose myself very necessary to the existing order
of things."
Then value your life. If you do not care to do
0 for yourself, for the sake ot those who love
you. said Lady Violet In a low and troubled
olee. She had strung herself Tip to say the
words which meant so much more to her than
they outwardly betrayed, it seemed that her
riches anil health and prosperity were creating
eucha barrier between twodestinies that longed
to meet, that she felt well-nigh tempted to grasp
at royal prerogative w ith the noble self-abaudoHment
of true love, and speak out plainly what
was in her heart.
They passed again under the shade of trees,
and so the only time in w hich he bad spoken to
her of his health came and went.
Some years previouscliance had led him. when
on a visit near to Lady \ iolet Kueller's home, of
Glanirwon. to spend an evening there that had
served as a bright Initial letter to this later acquaintance.
Emerging from the trees, they were talking of
this former meeting, and she again looked
bright, for he spoke of <>lanirwon In much the
tone she would* have chosen for him to use.
"I don't l?el;eve it is ever daylight there." he
said. "and I even doubt it> real existence at all.
It comes back to me after such an uncannv
fashion. It stands out in uiy memory as about
the most perfect scene of beauty I ever beheld? !
dew s and moonlight, deer and "river mists; and
I suggested to my friend that we should cut [
tho dinner-party and dance, where you were
all stjaugers to me. and take our pleasuring I
In your park Instead. He did not seem to see
It. so we went into the house, and you made it
so pleasant that, behold. I forgot all about
moon-hine and everything else iu less than half
an hour."
, Lady Violet laughed.
* Are you always so merry down In Wales,
and does the moon never iuto the fourth 1
quarter there?" tie a.-ked.
"Never, she answered him. according to his
Jesting spirit. " It is always full moon there. If
you doubt me. come and see for yourself."
"\es^ I will come." he said, laughing, "either '
in the ne>i: or out of It. Magical arts should be
detected ami ?x|?o*ed. It is onlv In Wales such
practises can linger." and so their passed, laugh- i
Ing. into shade again.
When once more they returned to sunshine, j
the house wa.-. lull in sight, and un the terrace
below them the rest of the party were assembled,
grouped round a tall handsome man, w ho, standing
beside Mrs. Panby's chair, placed on a rug of
leopard skins and scarlet, looked monarch of all
fce surveyed.
'"A hat a remarkably handsome man!" exclaimed
Ijulv Violet Involuntarily, as they
Iftused to look down on the terr/ce. Gerard
id not speak for a moment or so. then said:
"Yes. you are right. It is my eldest brother, j
"Howard, the magnificent.' as we sometimes
Call him." Lady Violet laughed and blushed.
"I reaily could not know that." she said. In
?prec^tion. "when I thought he was in Scotland
at this very moment."
"Of course not." said he; and you only exjr.^sjfed
the general sentiment. Come, shall we
ifcail go down and Join them?"
Steps leading down to the terrace were cut in
the rocky-hillside. As he put out his hand to
lead her down, he looked up, and their eves
met. If they had held by the old time-honored
language read there, they might have been
safe, but
" He does rot care for n.e." she thought, and
I must not let her suspect she is every ting to
oe, said the other, with an honorable man's
ispugnance to bid any one share his invalid
C&reer, and an unusually modest estimate or his
cwn ettractire powers. Yet both wished those
#sw steps would last longer, and weut down
tood-!n-hand In a lingering content.
"Ho that is over," said Gerard, with more
smph&sls than he was aware, as their hands fell
apart.
' The steps d.?wn. do you mean ?" she asked.
"Tho desceit to a lower level," he replied;
and the next moment they had joined the rest
cf ilie i.ar:y, :uji it ceeuretTt'j Gerard serae dozen
'
voices, his own among them, were lntroducinj
Howard to Lady Violet Kneller.
Sunbrowned, dark, and handsome In face
and commanding of mien. Howard the magnlfi
cent was further endowed with a good address
and welcomed Lady Violet with some empresse
ment. In lively and agreeable manner the tall
flowed on. and few ladles would have been In
sensible to the concern displayed by such i
handsome man as Howard for the due enjoy
ment of his guests.
I '"What! had they not gone to the polo matcl
at Q . nor taken her yet to Ivy Cross Abbey
the great lion of the neighborhood? Whv.wha
had they all been al?out? The last omissioi
must in* rectified forthwith, aud what day shouh
they choose for it?"
' Where are you off to, Gerard?" said his siste
I Ethel. You must be tired after your walk
j and tea w ill l>e out directly."
"None for me. thanks." said Gerard. "I hav
got to !>e at the stables for half an hour or so,
| and he strolled off in that direction.
yuite two hours later he was returning alonj
the shrubberies when he was met and joined b;
I Lionel, a fair young picture to look on ; fresh a

I or. in silence for a few moments, and then Ge
; rai d said:
j " Prithee, why so mute, young lover?"
j " As well mute as anything else," returner
Lionel, "and I think the world Is just the mosi
disgusting, disappointing piece of humbug thai
| ever was."
"Which, being Interpreted, means," sait
j Gerard. "'And Ahab. the King, slept with liii
fathers, and Ahaziah, his son, reigned in liii
stead."
" Exactly so," said Lionel, smiling, "and
! dare say I should not care much, only that How
ard always trill come King Ahaziah so awfully
, strong. It riles a fellow so."
"Well, my son." said Gerard, "as far as youi
chances In thedesired quarter are concerned, ]
fancy it does not matter much whether he is her?
or not. and it is aiwavs well to face the Inevitable."
"Oh. I am not saving my chances were hopeful
and for that matter," he* added grandly." "it It
an open question whether I should have earec
: to tie myself down so early."
j Here came a derisive lauirh from his brother,
which he had some difficulty in not joining.
I "But what I say is, who was to think of Howard
turning up just now? We have had an awj
fullv jolly time ot it, and none of us wanted a
c.'.ange, not she or any one," said Lionel, discarding
a nominative," "and it will all go to the
dogs now. When a fellow nays he is in Scotland
shooting grouse, why cannot he stay there, and
behangcd to him!"
"What brought him down?" said Gerard.
"Did you hear?"
"He said became as soon a? he heard Lady
Violet settled to stay on," said Lionel; "does lie
think no one is fit to entertain her but himself?
She has done very well without him, it
strikes me."
"She would make lust the kind of wife Howard
is looking out for,"remarked Gerard coolly.
"It is not impossible you may have her as a sister-in-law.
If that w ill please you. You had better
bear it in mind, and as for Howard he has
only acted very naturally, and much as you or 1
might have done in his place. There goes the
dre*sing"-gong. We are just in t'me. Cheer up.
Lionel, my boy, ail is not over yet."
"Gerard." said Lionel, throwing an Impulsive
hand on his brother's shoulder as they
turned into the house. "I'll be hanged if 1 do
not think you are the best fellow in the world.
^ ou make me friends with myself and every one
else w hen I would defy the Archbishop of Canterbury
to do it otherwise. Here, Judson," to
the butler in the hall, officiating at the gong,
"stop that old tom-tom of yours this minute, or
1 11 " and as a finish to thesentence he threatened
the man with his cricketing cap. just
taken off and now rolled into a ball.
For all reply, Judson bestowed on him a
fatheily smile of Indulgence, and looked affectionately
after the two fine young men aa they
mounted the staircase, for," while he believed
greatly in all the house of Dauby, Gerard and
Lionel were his especial favorites.
Hard it is to stay the fleeting perfume ot a
violet, and not less difficult to keep an atmosphere
serene into which a disturbing element
lias entered. It was even as Lionel had feared,
and Lady Vio et Kneller*s visit did not go on as
brightly nor give such universal sat isfaction as
before t lie arrival of Howard. It came about aa
naturally as water finding its own level. Almost
insensibly, and 011 the very first evening, the
lar^e party that had usually stayed long and
late around the piano was deserted first by
one. and then another, until only Lady Violet
anil Howard were left there In possession. So
it was in walking, driving?everything that befell
011 the next day and the next. It seemed
to Howard only in the right and natural ordei
of things that the best of everything should be
the undisputed, aye, and the undivided portion
of Howard Dauby, Esquire, and that with
second fiddles and half loaves Ills brother*
should be more than content.
Gerard had quickly divined that Howard's
eagerness to return home ere Lady Violet's
visit should progress further held a meaning
within it, and the hours were not slow In confirming
his opinion. Whatever was going forward,
Ivy Cross Abbey, or tennis, or dance,
Howard's place was ever at Lady Violet's side,
and his most dazzling gifts and graces displayed
for her edification.
It is not easy to decline the attentions of a
host, and a lover has a trump card nut into his
hand when he wooes in that capacity. Courtesy
laid its trammels on Lady Violet, and made hei
Howard's companion in drag, or dance, or dinner.
when choice would have led her far a-fleld;
and it was the less easy to escape from the traf
gathering round her that, from force of family
traditions or other causes, no one of the othe'i
; brothers came forward to Interfere with Howard's
right. There was one who feared nol
Howard one iota, and felt that power within
him that justifies courage and arms for any
combat, but Gerard was deterred by other motives
from seeking Lady Violet's preference foi
himself.
That malady which had haunted all his previous
career stood now like a barrier between
him and the path that Inclination would have
; made him follow. Even now. and, as it seemed
to him. accelerated by Howard's return, some
| premonitory symptoms he had learned well to
1 understand were warning him that anothei
struggle for life might not unlikely be at hand,
whose issue 110 one could foresee. The slight
estimation 111 which he held his own powers ol
attraction made him singularly blind to the danger
lie ran. while concealing his own love, ol
cruelly wounding that of another; and so, as
the days went on. he retrained more aud more
from joining in what was going forward, oi
seeking Lady Violet as he had done at first.
One day. at luncheon, an expedition for the
afternoon was being discussed, and a difficulty
arose to find seats in the carriages for all the
party.
i'ut me out of your calculations." said Gerard
; "that will simplify matters. I must stay
at home to-day."
"Ah. that will set it all straight." said Howard.
"1 suppose you have been overdoing yourself.
Gerard, and are seedy again. So you art
quite right, old fellow, to Btav where von
are."
"I have letters to see to," replied Gerard,
going 011 with Ins task of balancing biscuit*
with great nicety on his setter's nose: but one
at the table noticed with a yearning at hei
heart not easily endured that there was unwonted
pallor to-day in Gerard's face. His
spech she observed was not frequent, for all
that he kept up his usual bantering tone toward
Lionel and others, and he strolled away out
of doors by himselt as soon as the meal was
over.
Lady \ iolet felt ready to do some desperate
thing. Let a noble-hearted woman see the
I man she loves in physical suffering, and she
: longs at once to assert her right to be at Ills
side, and minister to and sustain I1I111. She
I too. wandered out alone in hopes that some
chance meeting might give her an opportunity
of easing the weight at her heart by some wort
of spoken sympathy: and while framing in hei
mind how this was to happen, she suddenl\
came upon the object of her solicitude seated or
a garden bench in a hollow of rhododendrons.
He was looking away from her toward the
distant hills, his arm thrown across the rustU
back of the seat, and his hand slightlv supporti
in:; his head: but he turned on hearing her foot
[ step. His face was calm and self-contained as
ever; but his solitary reverie had left ou it an
elevation such as she had never seen there before,
as the light lingers in the west, although
for us the sun has set.
Her heart sank within her. The immortal?
seemed to her already claiming him for tlios*
higher regions where human love and sy mpathy
may not follow until their resurrection into feelings
purer and less pasaion-tossed than those ol
earth. Not one word of the speeches she had
rehearsed came to her now.
He rose up w:th his usual smile of greeting
and would have had her join him on the rusth
seat, and when she declined, saying she musl
prepare for the drive, he walked beside hei
toward the house. She knew it was useless t<
remonstrate, that his good breeding would noi
permit her to return alone. She felt humiliated
annoyed, disappointed, and to nothing but th<
merest trivialities could she give utterance.
How different to that day on the hillside, whei
Rrave and gay topica had mingled so easily, an*
they tvad jested of another meeting at Glanir
won ! She could scarcely have named the plac<
to-day to save her life, and felt, with every ste|
*he toclt, Low enforced was the escort on hi
g part. He gave her little cause to think bo, foi
he kept the conversation up far better than she
, and walked with deliberate steps when once h<
- had ascertained the time fixed on for the expe
i. dttlon would not oblige her to hurry.
i- It was onlv when they reached the terrace
It and saw tfoward standing outside the houst
- looking toward them, that she found courage t<
a say:
"I hope it Is really letters that keep you at
home to-day. not any indisposition?"
Ii "No. thank you, I am all right," said Gerard
-, deliberately, "and the letters are not a poetical
t fiction, for once. You will see some country Ir
n your drive to-day more like your Welsh scenery
1 than is usual with us, so I hope it will get tht
seal of your approbation."
r Howard was waiting for them, watch in hand,
, and challenged Lady Violet's punctuality to b<
ready at the given time. She promised "complle
ance. and left them with an aching heart, both
" brothers turning to watch her graceful figure at
she passed into the Hall.
f | l>o what he would, Howard could not fail tc
y I recognize Gerard as an equal, and that he felt
s his brother in reality his superior was perhapt
a the reason he did not oftener seek his society
- arid confidence. Now, however, he was just
i enough provoked at Lady Violet's delay tc
- hazard a remark which might or might not be
welcome to the hearer. That leisurely walk
along the terrace had looked more satisfactory
i than It really had been.
t '"Shall you congratulate me, Gerard," he
t asked, twirling a geranium leaf between his
fingers, to affect Indifference. "If I prove suc1
cessful In that tair quarter, and present you all
h with a sister-in-law?"
"You would certainly be In a position to
merit very much congratulation." said Gerard
coolly. "Do you think your chances then so
good?"
"Well, perhaps it Is premature as yet to talk
of them," with the manner and smile that insinuate
much, "but I grant that 1 am not quite
hopeless."
The two men faced and eyed each other without
flinching, and a handsomer pair of brothers
could rarely be seen, although those who onco
staked their faith for the blue eyes would never
condescend again to the black.
I "You have made a choice that would do any
man credit," said Gerard, "whatever the r<wult
, may be. Perhaps, as you say, it would be premature
yet to prophesy about that."
They parted, ami Howard was soon urging
. his pretty horses along the park with Lady Vioi
i let at his side, while Gerard sat at his desk and
steadily wroto a letter tlint did indeed savorless
| of fiction than of fact. Once he paused in his
I writing, and while he caressed that heavy mousl
tache of his unconsciously with his hand, crazed
I out of the window and dreamed and hoped and
i wooed and won in fanzy all against his better
| Judgment and conscious Intention. Along a
; distant stretch of the road commanded by his
! window the carriages went gayly on their way.
Howard's tandem led the way; on the seat beside
him was a lady. Gerard bent his head over
Ills desk again, and wrote his letter to the end
without a second pause.
Two evenings later the family had dispersed
for the night, and when Judson came to barricade
the hall door, on the steps outside were
i Gerard and Lionel, and the former, taking on
. j himself to fulfill that office, dismissed the old
; man with a kindly good night.
Gerard leaned against a pillar, while Lionel
measured his length in an easy altitude across
the steps, and the perfume of their cigars made
the night fragrant. The day had been unusually
i warm for September, making the cool darkness
more refreshing uow. and the sky was thickly
| studded with stars. When earth fails. It natu;
rally draws us to look to heaven. The brothers
j gazed upward as Intently as any saint or astron1
omer could have done, and as they looked a
shooting-star?that most pathetic break in the
i calm and majesty of the heavens?passed half
| across the sky before them and melted into the
blue.
"There you go," said Lionel, not too poet(
ically. " Vanished like my hopes, luckless suitor
: that I am!"
" As brief, perhaps, but rather more bright, I
I imagine, than those hopes could have been at
j any time," returned Gerard. "Never mind,
! Lionel, it is a good sign to a'm high for the first
love."
"First. Indeed!" said Lionel. "Likely story
that, at twenty. 1 should not care bo much if
! Howard would but let her alone. I wish you
had gone in yourself to win her, Gerard; she is
, much too good for him; but you are different,
and I believe she likes you best of the lot of us,
! after all."
>' Rather a moot point, I should say," said
Gerard, "so we will put it aside, if you have no
objection, for another. Lionel, has it never
struck you we are one too many here sometimes?"
" As how, for Instance?" said Lionel.
"Well, we thin our woods," said Gerard, "to
give fresh development to the trees that remain,
and It might be wise for us brothers to take a
i hint from the notion. Three of us very often as
it Is do the work of two, and two of one, and
the upshot of It is 1 am going away."
"Going away!" exclaimed Lionel, sitting upright
In his surprise, and trying vainly to scan
his brother's face In the uncertain light, "You
of all people, Gerard, whom none of us wish to
spare. W hat do you mean?"
"You know about this expedition of Lord A's
to Egypt," answered Gerard quietly. "He
wanted a kind of upper secretary, sagacious ad'
viser, and highly-gifted companion, so I fancied
the post would suit my style of genius. In
t short.. I may as well tell you at once it is all ar'
ranged between us. and as he is a very good fel[
low, and we always get on together. I fauoj I
hall enjoy the expedition exceedingly."
"But. Gerard," said Lionel. In a voice from
: which all jocularity had subsided, "they say that
? i expedition will stay out two or three years at
' | the very least."
j "1 know It," said Gerard, "and that Is partly
| the reason I am going. There is such remon
strance in your tone, my dear boy, that it forces
l me to speak more frankly. As my health now
stands, I do not believe* my life in worth six
months' purchase from this moment, but a complete
change of some years to such a climate as
Egypt might prolong my valuable life indeflnite
ly, and one has even heard of marvellous cures
i effected there. It will be worth putting it to
; the test whether to live or die, 1 suppose, and
I either way no great harm can come of it."
> j "No great harm!" ejaculated Lionel. "For
1 you to go away for years, taking all the brightness
from here with one fell swoop"?his voice
broke there for a moment?"exiling yourself
? with strangers in a foreign land, there to fight It
out alone with life or death! Gerard do you
want to break my heart?"
And Lionel flung his unfinished cigar from him
1 to fall wherever it listed.
"There is no need to draw the picture so
, darkly," said Gerard with determined cheerfulness.
"The doctors, here, as you know, emulate
each other in their incapacity to set me right,
' j and If this chance succeeds?as why should it
| not??you would grant it worth the trial. But
| take the other alternative, and what then?
! What can it matter whether we say good-bv a
i little sofuier or a little later? We are not sentl!
mentaiists. Our taith and afl'ections as brothers
need to be no firmer than now. I reiy on you
' never to give me cause ?<. feel l' -s confidence in
i meeting than now in paring i'roin you, and I
think you may rely equally on me. The rest is
not m our hands, and if our parting were to be
; this night, we might go far before finding a
' more fitting moment."
Not a word came from Lionel ior some moments,
then;
"You are going very soon, Gerard?" said
I he, while a sudden mist seemed to him to ob1
; scure the brilliant throbbing of those stars
; above.
? " The expedition has been hurried forward,"
said Gerard. "1 go up to town to-morrow to
> inspect the outfit 1 have ordered and get the
remaining necessaries; after that there will
i scarcely be time for more than to run down to
> take leave before we sail. 1 did not know this
> before to-day, but It Is perhaps the best way of
doing It. In the morning 1 shall see my mother
[ before I go, and tell her all about it, but I want
? you to know it now. for 1 count oil you, Lionel,
' not to let me be missed by her, or my sisters or
any one?not even by poor old Judson." said
' Gerard, with a smile.
There was silence again for some moments
! and then Lionel spoke in a voice full of pain and
i passion, but also with a kind of enthusiasm rinsr
ing through it. ?
- "Gerard. I had rather be you than any one
' e,Re 1 ?ver heard of. You areas much aboye the
i rest of us as those stars up there. No honors
- could make you higher than you are, and death
i or lire, it is all one to you. I would rather be
like you than any one on earth."
( My career has been one of such marked suc?
cess that 1 can easily believe you. you arch
fttisaid Gerard, but he spoke with
- indulgence, tor he knew that the words had
f come from the depths of as honest and warm a
I heart as ever beat, and that his brother's eyes,
looking up to the starry multitude of the skv
, were full of tears. Lionel had not outgrown
; the age of hero-worship?It Is not on record that
t lie ever did?and he had not chosen his hero far
r am'.ss. A little longer they lingered on those
) steps together?a little longer yet after saying
t they must go. ?
, Next day, after he had gone, the new? of his
s plans set the whole household In commotion
and the general consternation and regret over
i them seemed to Lady Violet, the best satire on
i the uselesaness of Gerard's life aa described by
- himselt.
e "If opportunities had been given him," said
p she to herself, "he would have been a leader
s i auiong men As fate ha* willed, It is his home
and a narrow circle that have owned him and
, claimed his services, and is he less great for
that!"
The Egyptian expedition had indeed hnrried
forward its movements. In a lew days Gerard
, reappeared to take leave, and the occasion was
marked by that regret and hurry, baulking of
> desire and impotence of speech, that seem inseparable
to partings that strike deeply.
It was remarked by all that Gerard looked
worn and white: but he said it was only from
I the overwork incident to this forced march on
I Lord A.'s part.
i And Lady Violet was aware she had never
r realized what misery meant until to-day.. Not
a word ot Glanirwon; ot moonllirht memories in
the past or meetings in the future! He was
, going, and even simplest words of sympathy
; were frozen on her lips. He was gone, and she
. had only hurried forth at the last the things she
i cared least to say. Time anil the hour tortured
i her until the solace of night was gained. Then,
sleepless and despairing, she gauged again and
> again the bitter result of a time that had prom;
ised so fairly. "Lionel would undertake im!
possible things for my sake," she murmured.
' "Howard surely wants'me to be his wife: Gerard
goes away witiiout a word, to die in a dist>
ant country!'
> And next day. in good truth. Howard laid
himself and his prospects, figuratively speaking,
at her feet, and never had the magnificent one,
through all his prosperous career, been more
! taken aback than by the very distinct refusal he
i met with from Lady Violet.
So time went on, and before six months were
over, Gerard, true to his presentiment, was
struggling for life with the disease that, howi
ever often baffled before,seemed doomed to conquer
now.
The result from the first seemed hopeless: his
hold on life was almost gone, and though he
hung on between life and death far longer than
the doctors had predicted, they said it was but
the last grip of vitality so remarkably stronsr in
some constitutions, and that recovery was all
but Impossible.
When the patient still lived on. they modified
this opinion to a certain extent. '-He might
linger for a while," they said: and so far their
Sagacity was justified by the event. But the
little while grew into a long while, and Gerard
had made unquestionable advances toward recovery.
The Solons around him were puzzled; they
were, indeed, wholly out of their reckoning;
but, to do them Justice, they were even yet more
pleased, for Gerard, at home and abroad, and
ill or well, had tho mysterious gitt of winning
hearts. The tenderest care was lavished on him
by the strange attendants round, and by his
friend Lord A.
hen at length he rose from that sick bed, it
was with a very uncertain hold on any earthly
future, and it seemed scarcely worth while to
traverse the weary stages of convalescence with
the enemy still so near. With many a backsliding,
with many checks, the stages were, however,
traveled, until Gerard was at last as well
as he had been when leaving England. And
then what was this that tho doctors began to
hint about, and at last so openly predict?this
that his own opinion began to confirm in a resolute
way that was indeed now ?
They began, those good men. with smiles, Instantly
qualified by w arning si.rikes of the head,
to say that, with care, witii a fair trial of the
benefits of the Egyptian cliumte. and their own
most skillful treatment. Gerard might yet live
to be older than any of them, and enjoy health
tar better than he had known before. Gerard
himself, who had so often faced death calmly,
could not quickly trust his voice to thank those
that brought him now the message of life?life
with its renewed hopes and possibilities, its i
wonderful God-given opportunities, its glamour
and its ioy. There are some natures, and these
not the least noble, whom joy breaks down as
111-tortune never yet had power to do, who will
meet the one with undaunted courage and calm
front, tiio other with bow ed knee and with head
abased.
Gerard's own heart knew best why he valued
this boon of life so highly, but he was slow to
believe in its possession, and the doctors had no
difficulty in persuading him to lengthen his
stay In Earypt as long as prudence required.
Until their unanimous voices had again and
again ratified that hope that they had given
him, until prudence itself had no further precautions
to urge, Gerard remained In Egypt,
then, fleet as a grayhound released from the
slips, he took his way northward and homeward.
Not much was changed there. One sister
had married. Ted was otter-hunting in Wales,
Lionel's coveted moustache had come. He had
managed to get away from his work to meet
his favorite brother on his landing and bear hltn j
back In triumph to Dangerfieid Park ; and that
reunion, so little hoped for. left nothing on Lionel's
side to be desired; little on Gerard's either,
only that his desire now w as to go forward;
his home was only a halting-place, and no longer
a goal. Such changes are the Inevitable
work of years, but large natures such as his do
not forsake the old for the new, but rather expand
themselves until they take in both alike,
like oaks that mark the cycles of time by added
rings. They talked together again under the
stars. Gerard aud Lionel, Willi unabated confidence
aud brighter hopes, and they spoke of
Lady Violet Kneller. Lionel had not a little to
tell ot trifles connected with that never-to-be-forgotten
visit long ago. In spite of his moustache,
his face w as as boyish and sunshiny as ever;
but, for ail that, Lionel was a shrewd observer,
and drew his conclusions sometimes w ith remarkable
nicety. There w as not much, perhaps,
that was notable in what he said, for
Lionel had tact, and Gerard listened almost In
silence, and with little comment.
Only when the two brothers stood side by side
on the hall steps, before parting for the night,
said Gerard to Lionel: "I am going to-morrow
dow n to Wales, to look for Ted and the otter
hounds. It was chiefly for that express purpose
1 came back to England."
' I hope you will find them, then, with all my
heart," said Lionel; and both laughed significantly,
and knew they were speaking in parables
well understood.
Next day Mrs. Danby was not a little perturbed
at Gerard's intentions, and thought it
great folly on his part to ,expose his new ly-recovered
health totlie risks consequent on otterliunttng;
but Gerard assured her that he would ;
observe every caution, and kept his word, since, !
though he went down to Wales that afternoon, i
Ted and the otter-hounds beheld him not.
Lady Violet had not married in the years that '
had passed since his departure. She had tried j
to forget a certain fine face with its military set I
of head and heavy moustache, since she found i
it barred the way against all fresh Interestsa;;d
loves that came near her. She had tried to be
resigned to the expected news of a death in a
farcountry with which her life would have no
ostensible connection, but in neither effort did
she meet with much success? v, itli how little,
indeed, she only realized when Gerard Dauby
walked once more at her slue through the river
mists and under the deei-haunted oaks of Glanirwon.
What he told her there, what he asked and
what she answered, need not be specified here.
Heme the Hin.tor heard it perhaps, and the
river gods and I'an?but they keep such secrets
safely and only hint at them in the sweet murmur
of water and rustle of bough down in
Wales. Anyhow. Gerard and Violet were married
after a very brief engagement, and somehow
no one who knew the bridegroom ever insinuated
that interested motives had led him to seek for
the hand of the heiress of Glanirwon.
He had abundant work cut out for him in the
management of that fine estate, and it was w ith
a firm and capable liahd he ruled his kingdom.
That that ruie was a beloved one, that Lady
Violet and he were the model couple of the country-side,
may be safely assumed, and no one held
the belief more strongly than an aspirant fur
medical fame In the army, called Lionel, who
visited very frequently at Glanirwon, looking
alw ays some years younger than his actual ago.
Ted and the otter-hounds were always welcome,
too, but Howard- was not quite so frequent
a visitor. Each time lie came he wondered
anew how it was Lady Violet had preferred
his brother to himself, until some misgiving
grew to mingle with the surprise, and as time
went on even Lionel confessed that Howard became
less magnificent and more human year by
year. > i
And it was, indeed, a merry world that Gerard
found down there in Wales, nor did its
witchery lose its power, nor J were his illusions
dispelled, for, although the years have now
mounted up so that children play under the
oaks and by the river, the honeymoon at, Glanirwon
has never known decrease or fourth quarter,
but stands ever at the full.?Argosy.

of a life-study, and is aoliged to keep eix lady
assistants, to help her answer the large correspondence
which daily pours in upon her. each bearing its special

?'H-oses. 1 have personally investigated it, and am

Leucorrhcea. irregular and painful Menstruation,
ad Ovarian Troubles, Inflammation aud Ulceration,
Flooding*, all Displacements and the consequent spinal
weakness, and is especially adapted to the Change of
Life."

It permeates every portion of the system, and gives
new life aud vijror. It removes faintuess, flatulency,
destroys all craving for at rculanu, and relieves weakness
of the siomach. It cures Bloating. Headaches.
Nervous Prostration. General Debility, Sleeplessness.
Depression and Indigestion. That feeling of bearing
down, causing pain, weight and backache, is always
nermanentiy cured by its use. It will at ail times, and
under ail circumstances, act in harmony with the law
that governs the female system.
It costs only lf'j-er bottle, or six for $5. and is sold by
