Miss Coles and myself ure your friends, aud we know that you are ours. Our tnal friend, Mr. Black, is odd recommenda tion; yet his position of datectivo brings him knowledge which we coaid not compre hend. He is certain of your trustworthi ness, or he would not have sent you here. Please, as a favor, take charge of my counts, and, if you do not mind, go to the expressman's, and order the baggage sent for.'' mu* !!'• "Miss Clayton, this kindness is unde served," replied George, humbly. "But I can appreciate it. I know not what your troubles arc, but you have a clear conscience —I have guilt upon mine, and when too late see the evils I have fallen into—when too late to be anything in this world." "Don't think that! Let your motto be, 'Nil desperaudum!' I myself am sorely dis appointed because I have failed in a great undertaking, yet 1 will not give up hope till the last. Be cheerful!" "Your case cannot come within the limits of mine," returned George. "I have lost fortune, friends, character—all!" When he had gone, Cecil turned to Clara, who was gazing thoughtfully at the carpet. "Clara, why ure you so suddenly dumb?" "I was thinking how love acts on different natures," replied the girl. "While some mourn over the loss of the dear one, others are indifferent. Tho love I entertained for my parents did not hinder me from feeling glad when they were dead." "Glad!" exclaimed Cecil, shocked by tho seeming lack of humanity. "Yes, glad, for death came as a pleasant relief from suffering. Had I reuson to re gret their taking off'?" "/had rather have my parents with me," said Cecil, sadly. "Selfishness,'dear. I could live happier, knowing those I loved were out of pain anil trouble." Cecil could not account for this melan choly humor. "Why, Clara, how low-spirited you are! What ails you?" "No, not low-spirited but more thought ful than usual. Your friend Mr. Newton helped to awake long latent memories; that is all." "Not of love, I hope!" "Not love for one of tho opposite sex, if that is what you mean. I have not yet found the man to whom I care to trust my life's happiness. The majority of men—I sincerely wish I may be wrong in my esti mate—are not suitable companions for wo man. Now rose the spectre of Philip Eversleigh before Cecil Clayton. That it was which caused her to reply: "You are right, Clara. Entrusting love to them, they trample it underfoot. Wd? aud truly does the poet sing: 'Love Is of man's life a tiling apart; 'TIs woman's whole oxtstonco.' When man thinks ho loves, he makes a great ado—a new face attracts him—'off with the old, on with the new.' The idol of his heart is forsaken for another, to he as soon ne cncouutercd. glee ted for the next fair one Our happiness is as well in our own hands as in the hands of the opposite sex iar bet If we keep it so, we need not go to our graves with shattered affections. Oh, the lolly of confiding tho heart to hypocrites!" "How bitter!" exclaimed Clara. "Are there not more false women than men? Woman is more to bo censured than man for broken troths, plighted in good faith. Coquettishness and hasty temper are more frequently tho cause of separation than any thing else—with the lady on tho wrong side. Many misunderstandings would be rectified were women to listen to the voice of reason. "Heigh-ho!" said Cecil, suddenly, "here wo are talking girlish philosophy, totally unprepared to receive the company coming up the stoop!" The Venetian blinds were partly closed, but through them she had seen the shadow of a woman's dress. Clara was set in a flutter. "And I in my dressing-gown! "It's too late to change now, carelessly laughed Cecil. "I'm in the same plight. We can't keep them waiting an hour. The mistress, instead of calling a servant, went herself to admit tho lady, who was ac companied by a gentleman. Cecil Clayton's face changed as Fhtlip Eversleigh aud Mrs. Weeks entered. "Li Miss Clayton disengaged? "Yen," she answered formally, com '"8 forward, and extending her band to tho questioner. "You are looking well, Mi. E? "Thank' you! My friend, Mrs. Weeks, who comes with me on business.' "Which will not take long, said the widow, gracefully returning Cecil s courtesy. "I am in search of position as hidvs com panion. Being acquainted with the loss vou have met with—pardon me for mention mg it—I fancied you might need the ser victis of soin© such psrsou* ™ A n d I came to ask that on my recom mendation you will fully consider he lady s ability," said Philip, aud ret,red to th0 —ntf&ss However 1 , 0 tSough°not so young as yourself lam, I think, compamonabto. fe i t i mpresged b /ber e mann« and found herself wonder r,~t ys&s ter. antertllflvlan. Tet Bow needless to tale 111 stranger, that must eventually learn some thing of her history. These were the con flicting thoughts which rushed through her mind. Then came the thought that she might relieve the dull, monotonous life at her desolated home. "Madam, I really can't say that I hove considered the proposition you have named, as I have had no reason to do so before," she said. "It is sad to be placed as I am, but hero I have the best of friends in Miss Coles, who is to me what Damon was to Pythias. I am to be deprived of her com panionship to-day, having decided on re turning home. What say you, Clara!" she asked. Clara was delighted. "In fact, you would be very unwise were you to go without an elderly female com panion, my dear Cecil. I have been silly; I should have urged you to Bend for one of your Connecticut friends. Mrs. Weeks will more than fill the position, I feel confident; I've a notion to retain her myself." ' We'll call it settled!" cried Cecil; "you can't have her! There is my hand to bind the friendship, not bargain, Mrs. Weeks, for as Clara says, you will fill the place of any friend I have at home—we shall be always together—almost like mother and daughter." The lady p warmly, aud a ressed the beautiful little hand carried it to her lips. ''Yes, like mother and daughter," she said slowly and tenderly, and drew her toward her and imprinted a kiss upon her brow. Miss Coles at the moment remarked the similarity between them, and was amazed. Cecil smiled up into the lady's face, and murmured: "I love you already!" 'I am glad of that!" was the gentle reply. ''All, if my mother is like her!" thought the orphan girl. CHAPTER XX. 4 WHIRLWIND OF PASSION—WRONGFULLY AC CUSED—"i LOATHE, I ABHOR YOU!" "Now, my dear," said Clara, after this pretty tableau, "let me show Mrs. Weeks about the house while yon entertain the gen tleman who is tho promoter of your good fortune, and whom I suppose you wish to see." That destroyed Cecil's momentary thrill of happiness, bringing before her a courtesy which she would much rather have shirked. See Philip Evcrsleigh alone she did not care to. His neglect was not to be over looked; he bad taken his rejection too coolly—much too coolly to suit her—so un like poor George Newton! In her trouble, he came not to coudole. She had shown that her heart was his—he could never have thought otherwise without thinking her a coquette. He claimed to understand, and at the same time flung in her face the love she freely gave. Despite these rankling thoughts, she did not wish to retaliate; still, mistaken ft she she felt that she owed herself jVJtioe, was, and must teach him that she was no puppet for his amusement. She tried to believe that bis treatment had killed her affeotion, but how plainly did she prove that it had not by her unwillingness to give him pain. She could not offer excuse, for that would appear ill-mannered. Clara Coles, passing her on her way out, whispered, mischiovously: "No love scenes, dear—he's !;ndsome!" Philip Eversleigh had re-entered the drawing-room, and stood beside the piano, fumbling a sheet of music. "It gives me pleasure to know that you think well of my friend's proposition," he marked, thoughtfully, as the ladies with drew. . . „ "She is an angelic woman, no doubt. Mr. Eversleigh. I acknowledge your kindness in recommending her. It is odd that she should desire a position often made c; pleasant, unless her poverty suggests it the least menial.'' "You- will find that she comes not for money, Miss Clayton, but for companion ship only. She needs sym; :' hers is a dreary life, and she has beenem u 1 to 1 tho trials which beset her by relying on Di vine guidance alone; she tells me she coulg not, had she been a woman of the world, have struggled sucessfully through them. She will be a wise counselor and a warm friend." "I do not doubt but she will, Mr. Ever sleigh. As to her ago, if it were not for the fewlfiocks of gray mixed with her hair, the title old which she bestows on herself would be a misnomer." "She is scarcely forty." "Ah, you know her ago!" Philip did not notice the sarcasm in her t0 "Yes; as I have said, we are great friends." "I'm afraid you have designs on the lady s heart!'' was the insulting reply—"it will be somewhat of an unequal match. "Oh no," said Philip, wonderingly; "ours is more the friendship of mother and son than of lovers." This pleasant answer disconcerted, anger ed ''Indeed! Then you really have some of that article termed love—it is doubtlesB dif feu-nt from the genuine." Had ho been like the generality of man kind, the impending storm would have been hastened, but the unwarrantable thrust was ^ "Wo were as mother and son," he said, gently—"quite confidential—that is, I was. And when Mrs. Weeks broached the sub ioet of going as lady's companion I suggested, she had already taken un interest in you, that she apply here at once." Cecil flushed. "You have revealed to a stranger the se cret of our unfortunate, idle love!" ' 'I cannot see any harm.in that. "Thero are none so blind as those who will not see! You have become imbecile already, or are patterning alter the child of tender years-even your most sacred thoughts become public proper ty. t One would suppose pride power ful enough to keep the rejected suitor from laying bare tho fact!" To this tirado, ho made no answer. Her biting sarcasm and bitterness cut deep. As the Jiarp-string, swept by rude hands, clashes in discord, so were the ten drill of his lierrt jarred by her unnatural, blighting passion. Nor could he hide the pang it gave him. Sho noticed his look, but her imagined wrongs held her captive, aud her suspicions were having luel added to them. "People are very unlike, I suppose, she said, "and Mrs. Weeks is a charming wo foolishness is almost pardon [TO BE CJONTINUED.] re so un as or l man— your ble," ■■', * CLOTHING.
