It was sutrh an open ensmgagesn. between them-she to give money, he the title-that now when he feels hinseelf in dependent of her moneys it seems inmpa. sibhe for him to ask her to let him go free fren the detested bond.

"Does that trouble youYt" the hand Is worth two in the Aush." This is a dark saying to him, but time explains it. "The truth is, I saw Lord Varnham in town just before I came down here, and he looks as If he would last forever; as if he would never get older." "No, he will never get older," repeats Brooke in a curious toas. With the old nman lyingdead, this heartless speech of hers-this cruel longing for his death soulds even auose detestable than it would have were he living. He himself had not loved the old lord but he had never wished him dead. "As to that, I suppose he will have to, whether he Uikes it or not,'" sa_ hbe, vint dictively. "But I don't feel inclined to wait for him. And--e- as Lord Totten bham-" "Yea?" says he, his heart giving a great bound.
