Vane found himself by the side of I.adj Liliiw. fehc could not have beeu Ulndei to hi in; tUo sunlight was not brighter tliae he. She never once avoided him, never turned from him. In vuln the young Duke of Raynfort triid bin bent to rngrow her and attract her attention; it wa titclws. In vain did the Captain display his supe rior horsemanship, and try to engage, her in conversation. All her smiles and her favora were for Vane. lie saw It and It bewildered him. Could it be possible nf. ter all that ahe had relented, and that she cared for him? The very thought of it made his heart beat wildly, and sent a glow to hi factf. All at once he awoke fro'irl his dream. Where wan he? Tlioro stood tbo row of beautiful lime-trees, thre was the drop clear river, there the mill-stream with its rush of wuter, and thmo ah, Heaven, there stood the pretty gray fnrnvhone With Its veil of flowers and foliage I A ttlst seemed to come before his eyes and for a short time to hide it all. He was at borne again at tlio Meadow Farm, the home be had left so long before to become a gen tleiuun. Lady Lillas turned her fac-e to biro. "Look at that pretty picturesque spot I" be said. "That is my Ideal nf a farm house. Look at the Imney-oiiokle round the windows, and the white pigeons whirl ing rouud. flow pretty the cows look drinking trom that clear pool t I am so warm and so thirsty! I wonder If they would give me a glass of inllkf" The Duke of Kaysfurt laughed. ' "Yes," he answered, "I am sure they would, and remember your visit all their lives." "I can picture the inside," said Lady Lllias. "It is just like one of the interi ora of the old Dutch painters a clean kitchen, with everything shining and bright, a kindly clean house-mother, a ta ble with a white cloth, a homely brown jug. It was worth riding all the way for. What do you say, Mr. Vibart? Shall we try to get some milk? Look atj that pleas ant old-fashioned garden with its sweet peaa all in flower I I should like to walk there. Do you think the good people would mind?" Vaiie was white to the Hps white he knew, with cowardly shame and tear. He bated himself for It. Vet, with the young Duke and the gay worldy Captaiu along ilde, with Lady Lilias'a proud beautiful face smiling on him, be could no more have spoken than he could have flown. lie longed to say, "This is my home. I was born Lore. I am a son of the house. Laugh, sneer As you will, I am not asham. ed of iu" Those thoughts were in his mind, and the words came to his lips; but be had not the moral courage to utter them. "What do you think, Mr. Vibart?" asked Lady Lilian. "Would those good people receive us?" lie turned away his face lest she should ice its pallor. Tnere on the other side was the old sweet, familiar rush of the mill stream it seemed to sing to him with a thousand voices that this was borne. He Waa compelled to answer bur. "I am suro they would be pleased to see you," he said, in a strange hu.-ky voice. Will you not accompany me?" she asked, half surprised, half pained at his manner. f -I I would rather not," ho replied low'y; and the youug Duke, seeing bis Chance, said Lady Lilian, I am even more anxious thau yourself to see the interior of what 1 am sure is a picturesque old house," They dismounted, and Vauo watched them enter the house where the first lew years of his life Had been HKMit. Some of the men iu the (arm-yard came forward and utu-nded to the hores. Lord (Jliaru. wood uuil Lady Kayim joined the party, laughingly Uei i i ing th .t a glass ol milk would bo the most welcome thing they Could have. Vane leit his horse with tlio others and W..l.ed to soiiih little ditanec His heart was lorn witti loveaud regret.

'J'U sunlit morning when Sir Iiiye Vibart Tad tirt spoken to him about the boat I How much 'bad happened to him since thm! One by one tlio honors which he had received passed through bis mind. He had left borne a poor unknown boy. Now he held every fair jift of ttie world In bis hand The week before he came to King's Cljffe Sh Have Vibart, having no children, no kindred, had formally made his will. In his favor, and had adopted him as bis heir. lie had left hi in the Cue estate or Lul worth, with all the money he had accumu lated; he had lett him all he had In the world, so that he would be an excellent match for any lady in the land, so far as money went. He remembered that as he food with the sound of the mill-etreatn in fcl ear. lie looked across the Holds. There In the far-off meadow they called it the oak. teadow, when be was a child w ith bis (ray head bent and bis tall figure droop ing, be saw his father busily at work, and bis brother Desford helping him. His Wart warmed to them; be longed to go to tl em, to throw his arms around bis father's reck, and cry out to him that be loved fclm, that he was not sliam-dof him. But, If be did so, w hat of his love, what or La dy Lllias? lie eould not lose ber; be would rather have died a hundred deaths. It la a false petition be said to blra elf. "If I bad ny life to live over sfla. I would avoid it. 1 have a piu e, amongst the gnat people cf the world; and yd, if Uiy birth and origin were known, they would deelii.e to us-oci.Ke w lib r.ie. Lady Lllias would. 1 remember what he said about fanner's sons.'' Then he saw the whoi par! returning. He walked with Mow slep down the Ian, and sud.lei.'., to liu- surprise, lie s.w l.udy Lilin talking to a n.ost beautiful fciii picture of healthy blooming hui try reali ty with a tall, litho rounded tlgurefull of supple puce, a shapely howl pieudly set ou grand should- r. a daru handsome faoe glowing with health, fresh red lips, teeth whiter than pearl, dark bright ef, and duky rippling hair a girl whoe beauty took hiu by surprise; and, looking at ber, he rtcognied his sister Kate, who, year before, had hung round Lis nN k and begged bitn to leave heme to be made a gentleman. How well he retrml-rf d it, and lion bis heart went out to her! Lady Liliaa was talking kindly to her; and Kate held a bunch of sweet honeysuckle in her baud, which hd evidently been gathered for her ladyship. He taw auotber thing to the Puke of lUjifort was looking at her with admi. riug eyes, and Vane trembled with impo tent rage. The Duke, w hlle Lady LilUs walked on, stayed In-hind; he begged sonic of the honeysuckle; and K'r, with a bright blush and Cattcied smile dimpling ber face, gave 11 to ttm. "I hen ar d the sight of It enraged Vane the Duke laughingly touched the lovely face with bit finger, and Vaiie knew that he was saying something about the beautiful color tf it. At thai moment he could have struck tbe young Duke to tl.f earth. He gave ore quick glance around, but could not lee hi moth er. His heart was heavy and sore in spite tt the mile with which I.ady Liiiss greet-, cd LiUl, "How ill vou look, Mr. Vibait 1" tt said. '-I could not imagine why you would not go in with us.

"Let us walk on for a few minutes,'' fcaid Lady Lillus. Y'bat a lovely lane this is I I shall sketch that pretty picturesque farm-house some day before I lortve King's CI) He, Look at this beautiful honey suckle!" he held it out to him, and fce, knowing where it had grown, IWt that tbe touch ol tbe tender, gracttul tr-mlrils, w s as the touch of hot fiame to Itiui. She smiieil as kite continued. ! knew it vva a model larm-houfe.

If she bad known, if she had but dream ed that she was his mother I Still smiling, she leaumed You will be sorry too that you missed another treat. 1 saw the prettiest girl in that farm-house that 1 have ever seen in uiy lite tuch a rosy, dimpled, blushiDg face. She rr minded me of a May morning and eveythin? In the world most s-eet. 1 do not believe you are interested-" The eyc that met hers were o full of pain that Lady I-ilia' came to the conclu sion that h wn sufl'-ring deeply, and she said no more. The same night tb Duke of Hajsfort said to Captain Lormf "I shall oil at tbe Meadow Farm again. The girl we saw there is the most beauti ful I have ivcr seen." "Not so beautiful as Lady l.Hias," re plied the Capta'n. "Much more to my ta'te. I like those dark faces with a ro'C-blooiu. I shall call there again, lor the girl's face haunts me." Chatter XIV. A moonlit night and such a moor. I It hung like a clear lamp in the blue sky, and the golden stars surrounded it s ciurticrs do a queen. The dinner was over at King's C!;Gc. Lady Fayr.e had delighted every one with her magnificent singing. Tempted by the lovely moon, light, ir,any of the guests bad gone out in to the grounds. Lady Faync was talking sentimentally to the young Di:ke; Captain Lorme woid have fain don' the name thing, but Lady Lillas would not listen. The moonlight lay like a silver veil over the fair earth, making tlf uibt almost as blight and clear ai day; th- water thrown up from the fountains was like silver; and the tall trees threw graceful shadows ou the gras. During dinner there bad been some eon. ver-ation about the pretty farm-hou'-f, and Vane had li-tcucd with inexpressible pain. He hated the talsc colors uud'r which he appeared, yet he could nut change r.iatt rs now. lie knew that Sir Have would be. greatly displeased if he did' so, as one of the conditions of his adop. tiou had been that he should give up home. Vane tell miserably unhappy, and wished he b id never ac ej.ttd LordCliarn. wood's invitation but th'-n be wo'ild not have seen l.udy I.iiiu,and she wss so kind and so graci'ius to hiui. He awoke fr ru bis rcveiio t liud Lady l.iliai was near him. White lilies were in the d-'jd gold of ber hair and in her dress of white silk with rich trailing laces, diamonds sparkled on her lovely arms and neck, and ;i smile was on ber fa -e sweeter, Vane thought, than tuu face of woman ever wore belore. "What are you thinking ubout so deep, ly, Mr. Vibart;1" sbo ake,l. I have been watching you for the last live minutes; you look really as tbo".eli you would never smile again." As she spoke, she waUed slowly from tbe long French wind w on to the terrace, and he followed her. He watcued her as she drew over her should, rs a wrapper of white cashmere witu golden fringe. '1 hero iu the moonlight her beauty gained fresh radiance, lor the light fell fu.l upon ber charming lace and golden hair. She seem ed to expect tout he wouid accompany her. "Kvery one prefers the moonlight," she said. "We are not singular in our tuste." In a few minutes they had reached the gardens where the lilies stood in thick clusters and the odorous roes tilled the air with perfume. "You look like the queen of the lilies,' laid Vune abru) tly ; "and as for me, Lady Liiias, my ieaou is going agaiu, uiy lenses are leaving mel" There was no anger in the fair fwe.

A oiiiplleated IliiNlnesa-A I'retty little Koinanee. "The flow or Lulnis is a rathor cu rious one, and a little more complicat rd than ono would at lirt suppoMo," said an old uorit, as ho deftly twined a spr:iy of sruilax in and around a bunch of ro- . w) that lines of delicate lT.i?n Hcparated tho rich colors. How so?" "Why in kcojiinp a stock on hand which will pratify a variety of tastes. It is easy enough to have an abundiinco of the fiu-hiotiahlo flowers, even though tho fashion seems to change in flowers just as it dcie-s in dress. Tho fashion able Bowers are used, or course, in re ceptions, lunches w here each lady ha a bouquet placed at her plate, and in funerals. Hut when you come to indi vidual tastes, when ladies want flowers to harmonize with their dresses, or with their china, and when people want their favorite flowers which perhaps have gone out of fashion, why, vou cart never tell what kind of a flower i.i going to be asked for and that's where the complication comes in. Some peo ple wear flowers simply because Its fashionable. Others love some particu lar kind of flower, and want it whether they wear it or not. Then, if yon haven't got the flower, they get dis pleased, and when they have a big re ception tbey go to some other florist; so, You see, we have to watch tho private tastes of our customers. These huds bore were all the rage two yrears ftgd, and, although they are all out of the fashion nor, wc have to kee.p a, stock on hand for certain customers, who call f ir them every day almost." "How do ordinnrv b'ltskcts of flowers ciir Oh, from $.5 o $-'.r. sometimes they run much higher. We sent ono out not long ago which cost $160. You can have no idea how the custom of j sending flow ers has grown. All the young people buy mem wnen tney can afford it, and just now the wealthy young men nre beginning to pour in and pet flowers to send to their joung lady friends who have Just gotten in from the summer resorts. Whenever a young man takes a young lady to a party or to the theater a nice bouquet is crie of the necessary accessories. Flowt r-po ahead of all other gifts in winning a woman's heart, ami every vontiL jrallatit knows that." j" "Why so?" I "Well, nearly all women lovo flowers, and there Is something so deli cate, M much unsaid yet suggested in flowers that the .simple gift of ono is always appreciated bv a woman not to speuk of the different sentiments that are associated with different kinds of flowers. It is very interesting to note how difterently people, regard flowers. Why, I can tell almost the moment a woman enters whether hc ia fond of them. Women who lovo flowers always have sweet face, soft ways and gentle- disjiositions. One of (hat kiul rarely asks for tho fashion able flowers because it is fashionable. She loves flowers for their own sake, and consequently she Is almost sure to call for her favorites, whether in fash ion or not. The woman who cares for flowers simply because they aro fash ionable, is generally one of tho cold, haughty, airy kind. She will look around critically, seize some flower and pttil it out of the bunch, somotiiuoa breaking off a leaf or catching ono of its thorns in another rose and tearing the petals. That's the dill'e.ience, you see. The other lady handles them with a srentlo caressing touch, almost aa if they were human. "Did you know that the ladies use j floivers for perfumery? In France it is very common, and it is getting quite usiul in America. They take a bunch of violets and plue them in the bosom of the dress. .No manufactured Jxt- ! fume can vjv: up to the odor of tho ! flowers, jou know.
