It wn ii new Hfu to Iroiiu Diirey; kIio never thought to nk hersulf If It wrru riftlit or wruiijj, whether she Win keep ing a M'crct from those who lovnl her bout or not. Shu soon ecnseil to think or remember anything elite except that ho whs to eo Sir Hulbert every ilny,iunl eelng lilin hud Brown dearer than life to her. She made no positive appoint uieuts with him, shu never said, "I shall to by the brookslde at uneli an hour; but It was understood between them. Irene rose early that every duty might bo performed, that no one would be able to say she neglected anything. Every thing Intrusted to her was most care fully attended to, in order that she might have more time for herself; anil ho It came to puss that lu thu early morning, before thu others were awake, she spent long, happy hours by the linmksldu with Sir Hulbert. then hastened home, wait ed on her father with such loving atten tion, and was so thoroughly kind to Mrs. Ootrel that they could seo no lluw in her. Then lu the long sunset hours she was free again; and no one ever asked where she went or what she did. The aitlst was In his studio, the mistress of Uiu liouso resting, as old age loves to rest. There was no oiiu to hold out n hand to save her. Sir HulWt accustomed her to his pres ence as the Dower grew accustomed to the sunlight; It had becomo n necessity to her before she realized It. She might never have understood how It became part of her life but for his absence dur ing one day. Thu sun was setting, and the waters of the pretty brook wero crlm mod lu the red glow of thu sun. They were sitting under thu drooping boughs of thu willow tree: and he, looking up from the pages of thu book, said: "Thi lime to-morrow evening I shall be In London." He knew, for the first time, how much he cared for him when he saw the love ly young face grow white as death and the shadow of unutterable pain dim the bright, sweet eyes. "In London?" sho repeated. "Are you going nwayV" "Only for n day," ho hastened to reply. "I could not remain longer if I would." "I shall not see you all da)', theuV" sho aid, plaintively. "It Is rather I who will not sec you," ho replied. "The day will seem longer to uiu than It possibly can to you." "I nin nut sure," sho said, gravely. "You will have n thousand distractions. I shall have nothing to do but think." "What shall you think or, Irene'" ho aiked, gently. Her fair young face droop ed from his as sho answered: "You know that I will think n( you." And thu silence that fell upon them both was far mure eloquent than words. When thu sun rose on the morrow she realized all that he had become to her. Thu bright sun shonu lu vain, and lu vain did the birds sing; her heart wan heavy as lead; there was no light in her eyes, no spring In her step, no uluglng over her work as sho went through iter duties; no delight In hurrying to thu j-jioksidei all life seemed blank and dreary. "Wlint Is the matter this morning, Irene?" asked Mrs. Cotrel. "You seem to have lost nil life." ' "What Is the matter, Ireno?" nsked tho artist. "Why, child, all tho bright ness has gouu from your face; what ails' youV" "What Is the matter with Irene to jlfiy?"' nsked the old servant, Jacqueline, 'liexe jellies will not set, and tho cakes will not rise; nothing seems right that she does." Ah! what ailed her? that she, so light of heart, so brilliant, so beautiful, had no words no smiles. "What alls me?" sho asked herself; and her heart guvu her no -answer. Without him sho was llko a flower without sun to warm or rain to nourish it. lie had become part of her life thu tost part of it and what sho could du she could not tell, Ou tho morrow they stood together in thu clear morning light, each one chang ed. He read In her facu that thu time hud romo lu which ho might safely say that he loved her. And sho knew that she had learned with her whole heart to love him. "Did you miss me, Ireno?" ho wild, looking with passluuato eyes Into thu lovely, drooping face. "Tell me. Do not to afraid that I shall grow vain; tell me, did you miss me?" "More than I thought I should miss you," she answered. "And you?" "I," he replied. "I will tell you; I.nn doii looked very bright and full of life. I saw many friends mid many friendly faces, but I was so anxious to bu back hero with you I did not stop to exchange one word except with thu solicitor I went to meet. Do you kuow what this is a sign of, Irene?" She made no t, iwer, Thu golden morn lug light quiver. 1 ou thu leaves ami In thu water of thu brook; a little bird from thu alder tree sang sweetly. lie tout his dark, lmudsouiu facu over hers, us hu whispered: "heue, does not your own heart whis per to you what this means? Why should I miss yon? Why should you miss me?" "Ileeuuso wo aro friends," sliu an kwered, gently. "No, not that; wo aro now in tho laud where friends never stand; thu light, my darlliiK', that never shone on land or sea, shines for us, tho golden gatu of thu gold en land opens to us; there can bu no go lug back to tho calm regions of friend ship. Irene, my darling, look up at me, do not tutu that sweet faco from mo; it Is that wo love one another. Oh, my darling, do you hear tho words? wo lovo liio another!" Tho little brook might becomo a big ocean, and its mighty tide, would becomo as nothing before tho mightier sweep of hive that rushed through tho girl's heart when she heard her lover's words. CHAPTHIl IV. Then was no moru question of friend ship betweeu them; that was forgotten. Sir Hulbert was able to siullu at himself when hu remembered how cautiously hu had mudo all his udvnnccs under tho cover of friendship. Nothing could haro been moro successful. Tho girl had lost all her dainty, prutty shyness,, she was qulto at her euso with him; sho had lost nil her nervous constraint and Indiffer ence. With eloquence ho had persuaded her that she was doing no wrong lu keeping these clandestine meetings se cret front her friends, but that shu was doing something bravo and heroic, tram pling the prejudlco of tho world under foot. Ho, day after day, tho lore be tween them rov deeper and dearer, day uftcr day tho girl's faco grow mora and moro lovely, until Sir Hulbert, accus tomed as he was to tho fairest faces la Europe, wai danled by her beauty, It happened that one most beautiful evtalsi, when the sunlight teemed fairer M. BRAEME. than ever, Sir llulhett, hating the hour which would part them, walked with her some little distance home. They had not gone very far before n dark shadow fell across tlnjlr path ,and looking up, Irene saw the kindly, shrewd old face of Dr. Kean, the doctor who had introduced her to the world, and who had closed her mother's eyes, "I did not think to meet you here, child," hu said. "How nru you?" Tho lovely, llower-llku face drooped from his, the sweet eyes fell, tho little, white hands trembled. She had no words lu which to answer him. Hu looked from tho delicate, lovely face to the dark, hand somo one, and something liku n frown came over his. "I havu not seen you once for the last fortnight, Irene," ho said; "whenever 1 have called, you have been out. 1 began to wonder when I should see you again, Will you Introduce 'mo to your friend, Irene?" Sho blushed crimson. Sir Hulbert came to the rescue; hu could noth elidnro to seo her in distress. "I shall bo much pleased, Dr. Kean," he said, "to make your acquaintance. I have heard wonders of your skill. I nm visiting Lord Aruudale, and you stand very high In his lordship's good graces." It did so happen that thero was no person on earth for whom tho good doc tor had so much respect as for Lord Aruudale; (he very name was n passport to his esteem; his face relaxed, tho last frown disappeared, ns ho said: "You nre n visitor of Lord Arundale's? I am most happy to iniitfe your acquaint ance." It did not occur to tho good doctor how cleverly thu handsome young aristocrat had evaded tho introduction, and how completely he had forgotten to nsk his name. Sir Hulbert smiled his frankest smile. "It is through Lord Arundato that 1 first had tho pleasure of seeing Miss Darcy," ho continued, "and n very great pleasure It was. I met Miss Darcy Just now in tho woods here, and begged to have tho pleasure of seeing her home," udded Sir. Hulbert. Dr. Kean was tho last man In tho world to tell tales or to inako mischief; but in somo way he considered himself responsible for this motherless child. Hu know how unprotected sho was; tho dreamy artist father and the old grand mere were no protectors for her; hu was haunted by thu memory of thosu beau tiful faces, thu girl's so fair and tender, tho man's so dark, so full of lire. Cer tainly thu young stranger had spoken hut Id thu most frank mid candid manner; yet it would to just ns well to know if thu artist knew of thu friends his daugh ter made. When tho doctor met Santnu Darcy he aid to him: "Did Ireno tell you that I met her lu thu woods lately?" "No, 1 do not remember it," was tho reply. "I met her with ono of tho very hand somest young men I ever saw, walking In tho woods. I say nothing, I Insinuate nothing; but If it wero my daughter I should llko to know something of It," said Dr. Kean. "Whatever I ask Ireno will tell tne," said thu artist, proudly. And tho doctor, with nn cxpresslvo shrug ohls shoulders, walked away. Although ho was habitually n dreamer, Santon Darcy roused himself to think over tho old doctor's words. Hu met Irene us sho enmo In from u long, pleas ant hour spent watching thu sunset. "Irene," he nsked, in that gentlu voice of his, which had In it always a sugges tion of tears, "Irene, where have you been?" "Watching tho sunset In tho woods," she replied. "Havu you been alone?" ho asked. "No, I was not alone, papa," shu re plied. "With whom were you, Irene?" lie nsk ed, gravely, and she answered, frankly: "I told you that I had met Lord Aruu dale, papa, and this gentleman Is visit lug him; a friend of his. I havu seen him often since, and hu brings mu pint of thu way home." To this slmplo-miudtd man, who Hvo.l In his visions, this seemed natural and frank enough. No warning of a terrible tragedy came to him, no revelation that the beginning or tho crisis of Irene's life was nt hand. Ho thought it was merely n question of tho politeness of a stranger, who believed It an net of kindness to sou his daughter home. "It Is very kind of him, but you must not accept such nets of attention, Irene; you nru not a child now; Indeed, It tills mo with wonder to lind you aro almost a woman, my dear. You must not speak to strangers or walk with them, no matter who they may to, and I advise you strongly not to go where you art; likely to meet this person again." "I will do ns you wish, papa," sho said, gently. As shu uttered thu words all tho bright ness of life died away from her. For thu llrst lime, sho realized tho intensity or her love. Thu artist went buck to his pictures, Ireno went to thu pretty llttlu drawing room where sho could think at leisure over what had happened, "I will not bu unhappy," sho thought. "I will not bu unhappy." She decided In her own mind Unit sho would seu Sir Hulbert as usual on the day following, and tell him what her father had said. It was ii fatal stiurlsu for her, though tho birds woku hoi- with their singing and tho llowers were nil rejoicing in tho morn ing air. She stood heforo him, tall, slen der and stately ns n Illy, so loving that any man might havu laid dowu his life for her. "You look fresh and fair ns tho morn ing, sweet; and yet thero is a shudow over you," ho said. "All shadows," she said, "vanish lu tho sun. If I had a trouble, It has gone, now that I see you." "Hiivo you u trouble?" he asked, "Eith er let mu share It, darling, or glvu It to me." "My trouble is nbout you," sho said. "About me, Irene? Ah, then I shall soon end It. There would bo no way lu which I would allow myself to troublo you. Tell mu what It is." Ho drew tho slender liguro nearer to himself with n loving clui. Ah, what a haven of rest was this broad breast and loving heart of her lover what n haveu of rest thu clasp of these arms! It could not bo that shu was to loso them? "Tell mo what has troubled you, Irene," hu said, and shu told him. Ills fuco darkeund. "I knew thero would to mischief when I saw that tlresomo old doctor," hu said, Sho lookvd up nt him lu sudden alarm. 'Shall wo to parted?" sho asked, whllo tho beautiful faco grow whlto as death. With passionate words he answered: "Never in this world. You lovu ma, Irene, do you not?" "Better than my life; totter Uiau all the world besides! but 1 must obey my father," she answered. "I.enve It nil to me; I will not ask you to disobey hlini I only ask ono favor, Irene. Meet uiu here itgnln this livening, and I will toll ou what I Imvo decided. Will you do tills?" Tin- Inst hope of licr good angel, thu lat clinncu of her II fu died ns sho said: "Yes." CIIAl'TKIt V. "Wo need never purt, It you will con sent to onu thlinr. Irene, and that Is ,i secret marriage. In time wo can make It known, but at lift, and for the prc eat, we must keep It n dead sectet. What do you say?" Wltti these words Sir Itultort announc ed his decision. Slowly enough the rose bloom died from Irenu's face nnd a white look of pain came Into It; slowly the love-light died from the beautiful oy', and the shadow of dcxpnlr took Its plnee, Sho pokp no word, but thu golden liend drooped more heavily mi her lover's breast. "You do not flltswi'r tne, Irene," he cried. Shu broke from tin- clap of his arm with u little shudder ns of cold or pain. "A secret marriage," she said; "that means unknown to my father or grand mere. I I enmiot, Sir Hulbert; It would Hot bo right." lie understood tin; delicacy of her na ture fur too well to iittempt just then to nrgito with her, hut in llie fur distance he already saw his triumph. "Not right, my darling. I have never heard that n secret marriage was not right. It may not alwnjs bo wise; but I will not persuade you; it shall be us you will; 1 will not urge yon to consent to anything in thu world juii thought not right." Shu looked nt him through n mist of tears. "You know. Sir Ilulliert," she snld gently, "that I have not been brought up quite ns other" girls. My father has held lint ono Idea up to me, and It Is that one day I must go to my mother in henven. Shu loved mu so much, yet sho hardly saw mi' before she died. Now Sir Hul bert, yon arc so much wiser, so much better than I, will you tell me If I could go to my mother if I should consent to n secret nuirrlnge? Her face, they tell me, Is full of light, but sho would turn It from me. I fenr she Would say, 'This Is not my baby girl, whom I left so young; this Is a girl with a great, dnrk secret over her soul: nnd she would not love me, would she now, Sir Ilulliert?" For slinme nnd for pity's sake he should have fallen on the long grass nnd burled his face there. He should have trembled ns hu ijtoml there, buhl, defiant and hand some. As It was, the question startled hint with n keen, sharp pnln. This dead mother lu henven was like mi enemy To lilm. He. did not dure, reckless ns ho was, to answer her. The girl went on In n low, plaintive voice. "It Is nut long sluce someone miM to me that 'where there Is secrecy there Is guilt.' If that be true or ordinary mar riage, what must It tie of n secret mar riage?" "You aro too much of a philosopher, Irene, to love very much," he s.tld in ii tone of Idtter disappointment. "How foolish I was to think you would do any thing in the world for me." She nnsworod him only by bitter tenrs and sobs. He might haro hud mercy ou her, sho was so young ami so fair, "Irene," hu mild, gently, "do not weep so bitterly. Onu word at any tlmo will bring iu to your side avalu; you have but to say 'enmo' and 1 will II. v to you. Perhaps when you have thought It well over, ii secret iiiarrlugo may not appear so dreadful to you." Shu answered lilin only by bitter tears, ami something like remorse did come over him when hu niiw tlu- beautiful face nil wet with tears; still ho said to himself If ho were to conquer in llm cud he must be linn now. "Irene." said Sir Hulbert, "let us try, before we deelde, let us try If v can live without each other, We need not part just yet. I can icmiiin at Lord Arundiile's, It Is Tuesday now! lako n whole week to think It over, and let us meet here next Tnesdny, Just ono week from to-day, to ilevlilu whether wo shall part forever or never part more. What do you say, my darling?" "I will do anything you wish," sho snld, glad of any pretext that delayed tho fatal parting. "Then It shall he ho," he said, "Next week shall decide, our fate next Tues day. ' We shall meet liete, and It shall lie for weal or for woe. Forever to lovo each other, or forever to purt. Next Tuesday, Irene, how ithnll I llvo until the day comes?" He kissed tho tears from her eyes and left her the most mlsernhlo and desolate girl under thu summer sun. Thu following Tuesday sho was at tho trystlug place, fully determined to tell him that while she could nut bear to part with him, neither could she consent to a secret marriage. "My darling," ho cried, "how could we fancy wo could ever purt?" Shu clung to lilm weeping nnd sobbing. The pretty, coquettish hat hail fallen ou tho grass, the golden hair lay in rich, shining waves over her fhouldeiv, her llttlu whlto hands clung to him. "I do not kuow how I linvo lived," sho said, with a shudder. "Sir Hulbert, an other such week would kill me." "How did we ever dream that wo could live away from each other, Ireno?" hu said. "This one week has been liku a long year to me." And then, looking Into her face, he said: "I was m eomo for my answer to-day, Irene. What U It?" lie kissed tho silent lips, "You havo no words for me. You know the old proverb, darling, Unit silence gives eouent. May I take your silence for the sweetest consent ever given?" Then she found cotiriigo to speak. "I cannot bear the purling," sho said, hurriedly, "and I rnuuot bear a secret marriage.
