—««MT. v:\vtou, 1 desire to say that there
need be uo needless formality between us,"
said Cecil, kindly. "I trust you implicitly.
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
"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
Cecil could not account for this melan
"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
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
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*

stranger, that must eventually learn some
thing of her history. These were the con
flicting thoughts which rushed through her
Then came the thought that she might
relieve the dull, monotonous life at her
"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
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
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
"I love you already!"
'I am glad of that!" was the gentle reply.
''All, if my mother is like her!" thought
the orphan girl.
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
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,
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

She could not offer excuse, for that would
Clara Coles, passing her on her way out,
"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

vine guidance alone; she tells me she coulg

She will be a wise counselor and a warm
"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

Had ho been like the generality of man

hastened, but the unwarrantable thrust was

gently—"quite confidential—that is, I was.
And when Mrs. Weeks broached the sub

she had already taken un interest in you,
that she apply here at once."
"You have revealed to a stranger the se

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,
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.
