Even tho ladies who had retired dis counted could not help loving the spirited handsome boy. The servants worshipped him. When he did wrong, they scrccnod him; they could never be persuaded to tell of his escapades. "The boy will stand but a poor chance if he remains here," Dr. Klsdale would Pay. "Tho best thing for him is ft public school, where, instead of being ono by himself, he will be ono of many.'' Hut Lady Oarew would not hear of this. Her darling should never bo treat ed as she had read of bo3-s boing treated at public schools. "Your husband would have wishod it," tho Hector told her. Sho raised her lovely eyes to his face. "I do not think ho," sho replied. "He did not go to a public school hini elf." There was no answer, in her opinion, to this lino of argument. Lady Carew was ono of thoso gentle, amia ble, unselfish women whom perhaps Thackeray has painted more cleverly than any other writer a woman who must have a master of some kind. Some women are always in subjection to fa ther, brother, husband or son. Sho was one of this class ono who lovod the chains that bound her, and would have been unhappy without them. She was tall and graceful, with a face as sweet and tender as it was beautiful, a woman with a soft voice and gentle gesturgs, everything about her denoting retine jneiit and good breeding, a woman to be almost worshiped for her very weak ness. She was essentially a woman of one idea. While her husband lived she had loved him solely and entirely; now that !he was dead, her son had his place in ' ,her heart. Young, fair, and generally beloved, when Sir Antony had been dead some tuna, many admirers "Jironged round her. She received many otlers of marriage, ono from the great mag nate of the county, the Duke of Culross, who had never admired any woman so much in his lifo. "Marry me," he said to her, "and will not only be the kindest of husbands to you, but I will be the best of fathers to your boy: and ho will need a master, believe me." She shrank from him in trembling dread, that was something liko horror. Another husband, while Antony was waiting for her in another world asoc ond father for her boy whom Antony had clasped in his dying arms and had left to hercare! Shothankedthe Duke, with a scared and bewildered expres sion, but told him it was impossible. Site could not, she said to herself, have two husbands; and hers, to her .simphi mind and loving heart, was wait ing for her. How could she teach hor son to call any one else "father," when .Sir Antony's last words and dying ca ress had been for him? She went to tho room where her hus band had died, and kissed, with pas sionate love and pain, the pillows where his head had lain. Tho memory of that bolovod husband was dearer to her than tho most tendor love of any living man. As she had lived tor her husband, now she lived for her son. Lovers sighed in vain. The only gentlemen who pleased her wero thoso who ad mired. Sir Carlos, and tho secret was soon discovered. If -any despairing lover went to Firholme and nsked for Lady Carew without asking for the boy, he was never invited to Firholme a sec ond time; but, if one came with any thing for her son curiuus es from birds' itcsts, a riding whip, or a whistle anything likelv to please him then ftll that there was of tho best in the house was at his service. The way Lady Carew' a heart was through hor boy. It was a groat pity, all her friends said, that she did not marry again. The boy would bo so much hotter it had a man to control hiin. Sweet, yielding, gentle Lady Carew was ill fitted lor the caro of a high-spirited boy who hud will enough to hold his own against almost anybody. 1'erhaps," thought, some of her ad mirers, " when tho boy is older and sho lias less anxiety on his account, she may be persuaded to marry." Hut they could not feel any resentment against her or annoyance, only something like nvy of the boy for whom sho gavo everything. Alter the troop of governesses came "'relays of tutors; and there was less trouble. Sir Carlos had ofton thought Jt beneath his dignity that he should tinder the the tuition of women. resent id the fact that at Firholme there were so many women; and, before was eight years old, ho professed him eclf tired of them. f. With the tutors camo a now order things. I'erhups they were more worldly-wise than tho ladies. Whilo they taught Lutiu and Creek, they Jiot forget to instruct tlio boy in ports ho lovod. His mother turned jialu when she saw hint ready to leap liates or fences, and the spirited little pony he rodo never refused either. She admired his reckless courage, how ever, and did not try to check it. Tho boy must not bo a milksop, sho re flected; he must glow up liko the U And martini Carews of old. fco the heir of Firholme grew up ono of tlm hRndflomoit,, brnvost, nml bright est of boys. Ho was gonoroim bityoml mnoHure; he hail n woiulnrfullv sensi tive! heart, anil vouM not ciuliirn tho siht of puin nor did lio ever willfully tnllict it ; the weak or neipMwa nevor nnpoftlnd to him in vain. Many a timo did he dismount from his pony to carry the burdon of an old man or woman toiling along in the noonday heat. He was idolized by the country-folk. Gray-haired men bowod low to him, and pretty maidens blushed and brightened at his approach. His word was law, his will was master; and, when he reached tho apro of sixteen and looked back upon his life, ho could not remember at any tima ho had wishod for anything and beon refused. CHAPTER III. I to ho up be Ho he of "I should liko to go to Oxford, mother," said Sir Carlos, ono lovely spring morning. On the previous day his tutor, tho Rov. Mr. fierce, who had spent two years at, Firholme, had left abruptly. He had fallen in lovo with beautiful Lady Carow; and In some way the young heir had discovered his tutor's love for his mother; and ho resolved that tho Uev. Mr. Fierce should leave Firholme at once. My mother, sir," said Sir Carlos to tho astonishod gentleman, is a ladv ana an an angel. My mother thinks as much of my father now as sho did when he was living. Sl.o is just as much his wito now as she was when ho was hero at Firholme with her." His passion seemed to gather with his words. "Do you know," ho continued, " that, although lifo and death divide thorn, my mother talks to my father? I have heard her; and she talks about mo." "You are very selfish," returned the ballled lover; "you would have your mother devoto her whole life to you." "Certainly 1 would," rejoined Sir Carlos. " My mother has but mo. Do you think she is so light of mind and of heart as to think or dream of another man in my father's place?" " I do not seo why your mother should not marry again as well as other people," replied tho tutor, gloomily. "1 do, replied his pupil, with flashing eyes. "My mother belongs to my father and to mo wo fill her life. And remember this, that, if sho did marry again, sho could and would choose from tho noblest in the land, and not I have no wish to insult you not such a man as you." " 1 havo good blood in my veins, and my family is as old as your own. Sir Carlos !" cried the irato clergy man. "That may bo: but ladies liko my mother do not marry tho tutors of their sons. lou must leave rirholme. Fierce you cannot remain here another day." " I shall not take my dismissal from you, Sir Carlos." " 1 think you will," said the young heir. " I am sixteen, and no man re maius twenty-four hours in the place who dares to make love to my mother." " I have not made love to your mother." "Mot yet." interrupted Sir Carlos "but you would if you remained. You have boon presumptions, and you must go. I will toach myself for the future. My mother aim you, indeed ! In a state of great indigestion. Sir Carlos went to his mother's boudoir. She was seated there iu tho midst of flowers and books, calm, serene, beau tiful as the morninr itself. As usual. when she saw her idolized son, every other thought went out of her mind her book foil to the ground, and she rose from her seat and went up to him with murmured words of love and tenderness. Sho stopped suddenly, for there was something in his face she had never seen there before. " What is the matter, Carlos P" sho asked, passing her hand caressingly over his hair. "Mother," he said abruptly, "would you evor marry again P" Her face paled, and a shudder as of horror passed over her. " I marry again, my son P Most surely not !" He laid both his hands on her shoul ders, and looked into tho eyes that had never expressed anything save love for him. " Is it not true that you talk to my father although ho is dead P Dead I hardly know what tho word 'dead' moans. But is he not the same to you as though he were living with us ?" " Yes, the same, but dearer," she replied, iu wonder. What had caused her son to speak to her iu this strange way P" " I knew it, he said, proudly. "Mother, that tutor of mine must leave to-morrow. There must be no indecision about it ; he goes to-morrow." olio accepted what he said without word. She looked at him in vague wonder as ho went on " Do you know what ho has dono, mother what he has dared to do ?" It Hashed across hor mind that the tutor had probably tried in some way to correct his pupil, and sho suggested it. "Correct me!" cried Sir Carlos, with Hashing eyes and Hushed face. "Correct me! I have collected him; and to-morrow ho must go. I havo taken it very quietly far more quietly than I thought I should. His offenso against vou not against me." Against mo!" exclaimed Lady Carew, w horn no person had ever yet oll'ended. "Yes; ho has fallen in love with you, mother ; and to-morrow he must go." "What a strange what a very un pleasant thing, Carlos !" said Ladv Carew. wondering what her son would say if ho knew how many offers marriage sho had received and refused already. He threw his arms round her and drew her closely to him. " Never mind, mother," he said, tenderly; "do not let it trouble you. 1 will take caro of you. No ono shall tease you or vex you whilo I am alivo. If any man dares to niako lovo or talk nonsense to you, 1 will call him out and shoot him." Though Lady Carew smiled as hor son's arms clasped hor and sho felt the quick boating of his heart, hor eyes grew dim with tears. It was so sweet to hear this boy whom sho loved dearly say he would dulend hor, and soo him take upon himself the airs manhood for her protection. " Ho goes to-morrow," ropeated Carlos. " ro will treat him handsome ly; ho shall havo a year's salary; but does not remain here twmty-four hours." "Do you not think, Carlos, that should consult Doctor Klsdale?" " Certainly not, mother; it must as I wish;" and, by thoso few words and by that ono act, ho seemed sud denly to have stopped from boyhood manhood. Slio looked at hira with wondering eyes. Was this tho baby-son whom Antony had hold iu his arms when his death-bed, he who di missed tutors, ; I ; who docline to consult the Hector, who took hor under his caro and protection? They seemed suddenly to have changed placid. She was no longer tho protectress and guardian; sho was the ono cared fur. "You do not object, mother?" ho said, quickly. It might have beon hotter had she chided his eagerness, had sho asserted her own authority or that of the Rector, had she refused to allow him to have his own way so entirely. Hut all sho folt was intense delight at the Idea of her son protecting her. Ho look Ht her admiringly. " Why, mother," he said, "I have always "felt that you wero beautiful; now I seo it! 1 have never thought about those things before; but you look so young; there is not a lino on your face; it is as fresh and nnwrinklod as a girl's: and to think that that man should ever dream of asking you to bo his wife! There are some impertinences too great even for comment this is one.' Had over mother such a son, such a defender? Ah, Sir Antony need not. havo feared leaving her! How good Heaven was too her! "Write that check out for mo now, mother." he went on, "and you shall be saved the pain of seeing tho Rever end Mr. Pierce again." All the unfortunate tutor's protesta tions were in vain. " I snould never liko you again," said Sir Carlos. "You can no longer remain in the same house with mo and mother. You might with as much reason havo fallen in love with an angel as with my mother." "1 knew it; but I think you might be sorry for mo," returned tho tutor, gloomily. " Yes, I am sorry for you," said the young hoir, cheerfully ; " but that does "not make any difference, yon know." It was in tho canly morning that tu tor and pupil parted. In vain did Mr. Fierce solicit tho favor of saying "Good-bye" to Lady Carew. Her son would not hear of it. "My mother is tired and she will not be down yet. You had better start early; the servants will think then that you have been sent for suddenly. I am sure it is better for you that you should not seo my mother again." Thoy walked to the courtyard to gether, the boy who had so suddenly become a man and tho tutor who had been the lirst to feel it. The morning was bright, and tho grand pile of buildings and the magniliccnt terraces were bathed in the golden light of the rising sun. Tho two stood for a few minutes by a sun-dial in tho court-vard. Near it, shadowed by the spreading branches of some lime-trees, was an old well, the stones round which wero covered with thick, groen moss and always damp. Some of the Carews htd wished to have the court-yard clear and paved, but not so Sir Antony ; he had loved tho old dial, the spreading limes, and the mossy well. Ie had or dered seats to bo placed under the lime-boughs ; and on one of these Sir Carlos sat on this bright morning when ho wishod his tutor farewell. " It may be all for the best," said tho tutor to "tho boy. "Still you have taken matters with a very high hand. Remember this, however. Sir Carlos; you have sent me away, and henceforth I shall lead a lonely lifo, a life that will never bo choorod by one glimpse of her ladyship's beautiful face. You aro prosperous and happy now. Sir Car los," the tutor went on; "but, if the time ever comes when your mother needs a friend, 1 I will give my lifo for her; and, if you are evor iu distress or want a friend, I will do all I can for you for your mother's sake. Goodbye." CHAPTER IV. ! a is of so to of Sir ho we bo to Sir on It was after tho dismissal of the tu tor that Sir Carlos declared his inten tion of going to Oxford. Doctor Els dalo highly approved the plan, but would have been better pleased had tho proposal come from Lady Carew herself. Ho did not like tho way in which young Sir Carlos had takou the matter into his own hands. However, it was a relief to him to know that the boy, who would so soon bo a young man, would be under proper authority for tho noxt two or three years. So Sir Carlos went to Oxford, and. for the first timo in her lifo, Lady Carew was parted from her son. Many times during the next three years she wont from F'irholme to Ox ford. There was ono thing she could not holp admitting to herself when she rellected, and it was that sho had never thwarted him. They had not once come into collision; and she was compelled to own that the reason was she had never opposed him. She had always foreseen where they would disagree, and had avoided the causo. The most tondor lovo existed betweou mother and son, and as yet it had not beon shadowed by disagreement. The throo years that Sir Carlos spent at Oxford wero passed by Lady ! Carew in preparing for his majority. : Never had Firholme been more pros- perous than under her gentle rule. A i.uu emu ui money lis anvuti umin the voung heir's minoritv, and the fironiiso of no young man's lifo could iavo beon fairor. When he left Oxford, he traveled for a year and a half, his mother going with him. And then ho came of age. The countryfolk round Firholme st:ll talk of the glories of that day. It was. '".i" ":ls 111 V1" U1U u"u ot Juuo, Tho roses woro iu bloom; tho golik'whiburnuiu and tho purple lilac hud given pluco to the warmer hues of summer llowers. Sir Carlos stood, soon after sunrise, looking round the beautiful homo that was his inheritance. On the night be fore his mother had taken him into the room where his father died. Sho told him of tho curse of the Carews, of tho obstinate 8olf-wi)l that had brought so many of them to a sudden and violent deaili. He had listened, and seemed deeply impressed. Iu the silence of that room where her own solemn promise had been given hor dying husband, bhe spoko to her sou with tho utmost tenderness and eloquence; and he was more touched than he had evor beon in his life be fore. On tho morrow, sho told him, lie would take his life into his own hands, with all its grave responsiblities aud important duties. She did not ask him now for a promise of obedience to her. That which she had not exacted from him us a child she could not ask now that he was a young man. Hut, she implored him to take counsel aud ad vice when he was in diilicully, and not to bo headstrong. Ho was deeply touched. Mother and son knelt together in tho great tapestried chamber; and ho promised that he would do his best to check tho seljwill that had brought many ot his race to an untimely end. 4,X will boa blessing to you, mother,'1 ho sai-l, " nut a trouble; and I will do what I can to remove the curse the Carews.1 " NO mother in Knglimd was happier that night than gentle Lady Carew. Sir Carlos rose with the sun, and went out to look at the niagnilicont home that on this day became his in heritance. Ho stood on a grassy knoll in tho park which overlooked all tho lower ground. His eyes glistened as they roamed over tho park with its superb trees, tho winding stream where tho cattle stood knee-deep, the pictur esque pilo of buildings standing in tb midst of luxuriant foliage, and th sheet of water called tho Holmo Merc. All his to do with as ho would, to keep with honor or to lose with shame! A wild senso of freedom seemed sud denly to possess him. All his! Ho had no master; no ono had any authority over him! He could do in every way as ho pleased! Not for ono moment that he meant to do any wrong, or to defy any authority ; but to him tho sense of perfect lilierty was sweet! Good resolutions tilled his mind. Ho would never do anything of importance without asking either his mother's ad vice or tho Rector's counsel. So ho would do away with the "curse of tho Carews." He could seo the windows of tho room where his father died. Ho could seo tho spot, marked by a white marble cross, where his father had been thrown by the horse which ho had rid den because every ono had advised him not to do so; and he said to himself that tho same fate should never over take him. Ho would listen to reason, follow tho advice of those who counseled him, and take himself to task when he folt his own will mastering him. Reverently enough the handsome youn? heir bared his head as ho said, aloud: "Heaven keep me from tho curse ti the carews! to be costisukk. Nature's Undertakers. How often do we hear the query: What becomes of all tho dead birds?". Tho secret of their mysterious disap pearance was but just now half told by tho buzz of those brown wings, and tho other half is welcome to any ono who will take tho trouble to follow their lead. The beetle is one of man's in calculable benefactors. It is his mission to keep fresh and pure tho air wo breathe. Ho is tho sexton that takes beneath tho mold not only tho fallen sparrow, but tho mice, tho squirrels, and even much larger creatures that die in our woods and lields. ISenncath that clump of yarrow I found just what I had expected a small dead bird and the grave-diggers were in tho midst of their work. Al ready tho rampart of fresh earth was raised around tho body, and tho cavity was growing deeper with every mo ment, as the busy diggers excavated the turf beneath. Now and then ono would emerge on a tour of inspection, even rummaging among tho feathers of that silent throat, and climbing upon tho plumy breast to press down tho little body in to the deepening grave. These nature-burials aro by no means rare, and whore tho listless eye fails to discover them the nostril will often indicate tho way, and to any one desirous of witnessing the operation, without the trouble of search, it is only necessary to place in somo convenient spot of loose earth tho carcass of some small animal. Tho most casual ob server could not fail soon to be at tracted by tho orange-spotted beetles. Entomologists assert that these insects aro attracted by the odor of decay; but from my own humble investigations I have nevor been able to fully reconcile myself to this theory. If it woro the question of odor alone in this dead bird, for instance, it would bo dillicult to explain the bee lino flight of these humming beetles, two of which came swiftly toward me even from the direction of the wind, and dropped quickly upon these feathers hidden from sight among the grass, l'orhaps in such an instance we might imagine that they had beon there before, and knew tho way; that they had noted this olump of yarrow, niavbo; but I have observed the fact before when there was every reason to believe that no such previous visit had been made. I am always glad of the opportunity to watch tho progress of these meadow burials. And had you accompanied me on that morning walk, j'ou would have looked with interest at those little un dertakersseen that fenthery body tossed and heaved with strange mockers of lite as the busy sextons worked beneath it, digging with their spiked thitrhs, shoveling the loose earth with their broad heads, and pulling down tho body into the deepened cavity Wil'iam Hamilton Uibson, in Harper's Magazine. A Mysterious Cave. i I Some of the boys of Uniontown, Pa., are disgusted that they did not sooner know ot a certain cave in a ruggoil seo tion of tho Laurel Mountains, about twelve miles out of town. Latelv half a do.eu strange mou came to Union town and took quarters at a tavern. They hired horses and wagon and drove toward the mountains. They were gone three or four days and re turned with a wagon-load of dingy- lookniir iron-hooped ken's that appeared to bo very heavy as the strangers moved them from the wagon to tho eastern- bound train. Thoso mysterious movo ments and doings excited tho curiosity of tho Union1.nwn bovs. and thev made I up a party of mountaineers to explore. The party found a cave which had evi dently been opened recently by rolling awav the rock3 from its mouth, ino cavern had been known to them before but it was supposed to havo been closed up lonir asro by great bowlders which had rolled down tho mountain and blocked up its entrance. Thev now think that silver and gold had been hidden there by somebody for some purpose, and they fool bad be auso in their ignorance or tno mine in inoir mountains they let the strangers get away with tho treasure.
