He mentioned a house that had been taken for the hunting season by some friends of hers. At this Junction Katherine and the children walked briskly on ahead. "It is tea-time, you know," the girl explained. As a matter of fact, she was anxious to get away. Sir Samuel had trick of staring at any woman he thought worth looking at in a very embarrassing fashion, and Katherine Graniger was certainly pleasing to the eye. The note of her appearance was simplicity Itself beside the costly elegance of Mrs. Lancing, but she was slim, and straight, and fresh, and young, and with such a pair of eyes any woman must have been attractive. "So you are rusticating," Brox bourne said, as he and Camilla were left to themselves "not much In your line, is it? But I suppose now that you are going to settle down you have turned over a new leaf entirely. Is the lucy man down here?" "No, he has gone to build a hospital, or buy up the whole country, as a thanksgiving for our approaching wed ding," Camilla laughed. "Don't you think a hospital is a very good idea? I expect he imagines he may want it before I have finished with him." nroar /onouv ami •ayoMW-®a She spoke £js lightly as ever, and laughed with the same ease, but with in the warm embrace of her furs she seemed to wither, to shrink a little Not half an hour before she had been longing, praying almost, for some bar rier to stand in the pathway of her marriage. Now she knew with the un erring sense of intution that what she had dreaded so much just before Christmas, and which of late she had managed to forget almost entirely, was coming upon her—that her future was definitely threatened. She had been so protected of late, BO wrapped about with the tenderest, the most chivalrous care, that she felt this sudden translation Into the old atmosphere more keenly than she had ever felt any of her former troubles and anxieties. It was as though she had been stripped of every warm gar ment, and thrust shivering and help less into the aching cold of a black frost. Yet she tried to play her part.

"I suppose Brenton will not mirid put ting this animal up for me? He- can't go much further." "Where are you staying?" asked Camilla. He laughed. "Yes, didn't I? Too good by half.' Fate had played Camilla a nasty trick by bringing her face to face with this man just at this particular moment. When he had been thrown his first act on picking himself up had been to trash his horse unmerci fully. That had relieved him little but the poison of his anger had not worked off completely. He had always promised himself the pleasure of deal ing very straightly with Mrs. Lancing. He was not likely to deny himself the satisfaction of doing this when he felt so much in need of a vent for his feel lngs when, too, he knew that he had the situation in the hollow of his hand "I must say," he said, with that same sneering tone in his voice, "that I was taken all aback when I heard what had happened. Always thought you were a model of fidelity, that your heart was buried in Ned's grave and that sort of thing, don't you know? But money makes a great dif ference, and there has never been quite enough money for you, has there Camilla?" She shivered. There was a leer on his face as he turned and looked at her She answered him half-lighly, lialf wearily. "Oh, I don't know! I think one can have too much of anything, even ot money." At this Sir Samuel laughed loudly. "Well I must say you are a clever woman. Yes, by Jove! your are. 1 used to think in the old days, when Ned was on the scene, that you were a fool and a saint combined. I know a little bit better now." Camilla's lips quivered. She turned to him. There was an unconscious entreaty in her voice. "Dear Sammy," she said, "why are you so cross with me?" But he only answered with another laugh. "Yes in the old days," he went on, "you played the part of the prude to prefection. Kept a fellow at arm's length, and pretenede all sorts of things."' "Why go back to those old times?" asked Mrs. Lancing, in a very low voice. "Because I choose to do so: because here is something that has to be settled between us, and you know that! I suppose you think I v.-as taken in by CASTORIA For Infants and Children. IhaJUnd You Have Always Bought "1 '«.. Color Jixriutivtly, the sweet way you treated me when we met down here in November. But it was the other way about. I took you in, didn't I?" It waB very cold in this damp coun try road all the world seemed grey the trees with their bare, seemingly withered branches stood like spectres against, the dull sky. Camilla's colour had faded. She looked haggard. "Please speak a little more plainly." she said. And Broxbourne answered her. "Not I. There is nothing to be gain ed by telling the truth to a woman, especially to a woman like you." She caught her breath sharply, al most as if she had been struck. Her incredible swiftness, fathomed the slgniflance of these words. She put out her hand and gripped his arm. What has to be said must be said to me, and to me only." Then sudden ly she broke down. "Oh, Sammy!" she said, "I know. Don't you believe I know I did you a great wrong? There is nothing to excuse it, except that you can't possibly realise what a corner I was in! ... .What an awful temptation it was! It has all been so easy for you. You have never had to face hard times and black, killing dif ficulties. You can't be expected to understand what these things mean." Why didn't you ask me?" the man said surlily and she answered in that same broken way: "I .1 could not. First of all, you had gone away, and then I was afraid ..." She broke off abruptly he looked at her sharply, and again he laughed. 'You thought I would want pay ment," he said. "Well you're right there. I have a good business in stinct. I always like to get full value for what I spend, or what Is taken from me." for what I spend, or what Is taken from me." At this juncture they had reached the gates of Yelverton Park, and Sir Samuel caught sight of a gardner. He hailed the man. gave the horse into his charge, and burdened him with all sorts of commands to the head groom. "I'll be round at the stables very shortly," he said. Camilla had walked on, but he over took her. Her white, drawn face seemed to give him a great deal of satisfaction. "You don't offer to give back the money, but I suppose that is what is in your mind," he said. His half-bantering tone stung her like the lash of a whip she was silent only because she could not speak. "Well, my dear, you may as well put that out of your mind once and for all that little piece of paper which you worked at so carefully is not to be redeemed by money." He searched in his pockets, found his cigarette case, paused to strike a match on his heel, and began smoking without any pretnece of courtsey. "This is a funny world, and no mis take! I was very fond of you when was prepared to make no end of a fool of myself about you. And you snubbed me up and down dale would n't have anything to do with me. ou were quite able to get along without my friendship, thank you. There are some things that stick, you know, Camilla, and the way you shut down on me in those days is one of those things. I must say you have a rum my notion of morality! I wasn't good enough to come near yon. yet you had no hesitation whatever about sneak ing my money when the time came along." An exclamation like a r,ob escaped Camilla. He laughed. "It is an ugly way of putting it," he said "but it is the truth anyway, and I fancy that with his peculiarly straightforward views, his working man's propensity for calling a spade a spade, Mr. Haverford will regard the matter in the same light." The woman turned at this half pas sionately. "You are not going to tell him! Oh, you cannot. You shall not!" "It lies with you to decide whether I tell him or not." He puffed out some smoke on to the damp air, and Camilla watched it wreathe and separate and finally fade into the mist that gathered about the trees watched it with eyes dry and hot with misery and shame and fear Suddenly Broxbourne turned to her. "You must break with this man," he said "I have a prior claim. I don't, intend to let you marry him." She stood still and looked at him with dilated eyes. "Break my engagement? Impossible Impossible!" Her heart was trobbing in her breast her lips were white. "Nothing is impossible," anrwered the man: "after all, I am not treating you badlr. If I did the right thing 1 should go to Haverford. What do Bears the Signature of ti-. you think he'd say, if he heard my pretty little story? How you begged a cheque out of me for a charity bazaar, and how, by chance having got hold of a blank cheque of mine, you filled it in for a nice large sum, and signed my name, by Gad! as bold as brass! I remember," said Broxbourne, shaking the ash from his cigarette, "I was is a tearing hurry when I answered your letter—it was the very day I left for America, in fact. I just scribbled the small cheque any how, and never noticed that as I tore it out of my cheque-book I tore a blank one with it. But you found that out in double-quick time, didn't you?" Camilla turned to him. The hard, dry look had gone from her eyes they were dim with tears. "Sammy!" she said brokenly, "don't rub it in so hard. I know .1 know how horrible this thing is! When you came back last November, I nearly died when I saw you. I prepared my self for everything, and when you were so friendly, when you said nothing, I began to hope, even fo I I a to ful ... I am in your hands, I know it—but you—you won't be cruel to me Sammy," said Camilla, in that same moved voice. She caught her breath. "If Rupert must be told I will tell him. She turned to Brox bourne abruptly. "Do you know why I have promised to marry, him? It is for my children's sake. Ned's father suddenly stopped the money he had been giving me, and demanded the children. It is the truth I am telling you, Sammy—the truth. The children are more to me than life." .Broxbourne answered her coldly he was unmoved by her broken voice and stained face. "I have only been back a day or two, but from what I can gather," he said easily, "I believe you are now a fairly wealthy woman. I must say he has behaved extraordinarily well, but of course that was a little bit more of you cleverness. Anyhow, as you have just told me yon only promised to marry him because of the children, you see the man himself doesn't count. You've got the money, and he cau't take that away from you—I don't suppose he would if he could—so all you've got to do is to slide out of things as quickly as you can. I'll give you a month to do it in," Broxbourne said magnanimously. Camilla brushed her eyes with her pocket-handerchief she was utterly unable to answer htm, and at that moment they heard the voice of Bet ty calling to them. The child was evidently running back to join them. "Go on," said Camilla, hoarsely "go on and meet her For God's sake, go don't let her come .... I .... I will follow. "I'll take her along with me to the stables," Broxbourne said, and he limped with a smile as Camilla turn ed, and half-wildly, half-blindly, walk ed sharply away from the house. CHAPTER XIII. The year was speeding into spring. Easter had come and gone. Down in the country, in the old fashioned gardens that stretched at the back of Yelverton, the sun was busy bringing out leaves, and even the blossoms, almost visibly. The children had. found a delightful warm, sheltered spot, and there they sat with Katherine basking in the sunshine, protected from the chilliness of the spring wind by the tall, sun burnt wall on which spread pear trees and peach trees, the pink flow ers and the white flowers mingling to gether where the long arms of the branches met and touched. Betty was supposed toNbe having les sons, but she was not a very diligent pupil not that any one ,urged her to learn. Mrs. Brenton's theory was that children should run wild till they were seven or eight, provided they were properly influenced, and it was really Agnes Brenton who superintended with Katherine the care of the chil dren now. Mrs. Lancing had gone back to town just before Easter rather hurriedly, and she had not taken the children with her. Her plans had been changed. In stead of staying in London she went to the south of England on a visit. From there she wrote, announcing that she had felt impelled to postpone the marriage. "I don't quite know what is wrong but my heart is playing me tricks, and I really want to feel much better be fore I rush into my new reponsi bilities. I have a sort of idea the Devonshire air will do me no end of good." The children rejoiced openly when they found they were not going away from Yelverton. Rupert Haverford came frequently down to see them all. His manner with Katherine always amused her. He seemed to regard it as a duty that he should put lier through a sort of cross-examination. "I wish you would understand," she said to him, half impatiently, once, "that I really and truly want to be with the children. What should I do with myself if I went away from them?" You might travel. You might study. Your income is not a very large one, but stil! it would give you the opportunity of coming in contract with a lot of things about which you know nothing now." Katherine laughed at this. "Well, that is true. I am woefully ignorant," she said. "It is rather im pertinent of me to call myself a gov erness, but I am studying all the time. Mr. Brenton is educating me. I shall be quite learned in a little while." "I only feel that it is my duty to put before you certain possibilities," I Haverford said. And Miss Graniger answered r'n¥ 'l-w s, believe, you ot know. Why did you not speak then? Don't you bee now much worse it is for me now?" Sir Samuel smiled at her. "Of course it is," he said, cigar ette between his teeth "I know that .1 tumbled to your little game with this man the very moment I came back, and I promised myself some fun. It tickled me to death to have you running after me just as if you liked me, pretending to want me, and im agining you were throwing dust in my eyes! I settled then I would wait a while. Worse for you! Well, do you want me to say I am sorry?" "I am very much obliged to you, but I prefer the certainty that I have to all the possibilities in the world." Then there had b^en a rather brisk passage of arms betV^en them on the subject of the girl's msney. "I wish you would not pretend things to me," Katherine had said, when they had first discussed the mat ter. "I can't help feeling that this is all your doing, that you consider it your duty to make some provision for me in fact," with a touch of defiance, "I don't believe my mother had any thing to leave me." After a little pause she said, "And I assure you I don't care in the least to take money from other people, even from you, ex cept, of course, when I earn it She was astonished to see how cross he looked. "Evidently," he said, "you have not read those old letters and papers I gave you." And then Katherine was obliged to confess she had not done so. "I advise you," Haverford had re marked, "to acquaint yourself with your mother's story, then you will see I have invented nothing." But Miss Graniger could be obsti nate at times. "Well," was ail she had remarked in answer to thfs, "there may have been something but I am convinced, Mr. Haverford, you are giving me more than I ought to have." -t« ,4s''. "I THE OTTUMWA COUBIE'R Health— To this, a little stiffly, he said: "If you are not satisfied with what has been arranged, you can instruct a lawyer to go into the matter. I will give you the address of a very good man." And Katherine had frowned, and then smiled. "You know perfectly well I am not grumbling at you. The idea Is ri diculous!" "Are you not?" he had queried, with a smile. "Well, it sounded uncom monly like it." On the whole, however, they were on the best of terms, although they never progressed to intimacy. April was well advanced when the children's mother arrived unexpected ly at Yelverton. She had travelled up from Devon shire without pausing for a rest In town, and declared that she was per fectly well! but Agnes Brenton was shocked at her appearance—shocked, too, and pained by the change in her manner. That quiet, apathetic languor was gone. Camilla was all jerks and nerves. She seemed strung up to the highest pitch of excitement. She talked incessantly, and smoked near ly all the time. This was a new habit. It appeared she had not come to stay at Yelverton. She was due at Lea Abbey. "I want to leave Dennis here," she said to Mrs. Brenton. "She is seedy, poor soul, and I told her she had bet ter take a holiday. I can manage without her for a day or two." They strolled out-of-doors to join the children. Katherine was dream ing. It was so delicious out in the garden sitting looking at the country that stretched away in the distance, veiled in that tender, velvety bloom which Is the first embrace of spring so de licious to hear the irresistible and varied notes of the thrush from the boughs of the old apple tree, chanting to the buzz of the bees humming in and out of the adjacent currant bushes The children were playing about her Baby was picking flowers every now and then she would over-balance her self and topple over, and then she would sit solemnly contemplating the earth with a resigned expression till Betty came and pulled her up. Her treasures were always brought and laid on Katerine's lap. The girl closed her eyes for a mo ment, and when she opened them it seemed as if a fresh bunch of snowy pear blossom on the wall beside her had been whispering into life. Beyond in the paddock little lambs were bleat ing. Betty had made a great discovery that morning. The robin's eggs in the nest hidden so cunningly (just at the entrance into the fruit gardens) had vanished, and in their place some little feathered morsels, with wide open beaks and glittering eyes, were treasured in the warm, dark-depths Life was full of indescribable delights, The coming of Camilla was like the falling of a curtain. The time for dreams was ended the quiet garden seemed to quiver with another kind of life. She spent the few hours she was at. Yelverton with the children. They carried her everywhere—through the rough meadows, over the marches to the woods that were carpeted with primroses, with here a patch of wild violets, and anon a streak of budding bluebells. A great weight seemed to have gathered about Katherine Gran iger's heart. For the first time she lagged as she walked, and quite for 't Wear a Truss Brochs' Appliance in a DAW scientific discovery with auto matic air cushions that draw* the broken parts together and binds thorn as you would a broken limb.

Mich- got to look for plover's eggs. Once, as they paused to listen to a lark piping out its soul in the clear sky, and then watched it drop to earth, Camilla pinched the arm she held. "Naughty Kathie," she said "you are not a bit glad to see me!" The girl's eyes filled with tears. "I am not a bit glad to see you looking as you look now," she answer ed. "How do I look?" "Ill and miserable. ." Camilla laughed. "Ill and miserable, my dear child do you know what you are saying? I may be a bit seedy—I don't deny that—but how can I be miser able when I have everything in the world to made me happy?" "I don't know why you should be. I only know you are," was Katherine's quietly spoken answer. They had to carry Baby across the dykes the ex ertion brought the colour flashing In to her mother's cheeks for a while. "I shall get yon a donkey to ride, Boodles," she said, as they turned homewards, their arms full, and their hats wreathed with the wood flowers. "You are such a lot too heavy to carry That reminds me, Betty," Camilla added, "you are going to have a dog, a real beauty. Sammy is sending It to you." "I don't want It, thank you very much, said Betty, In her clear treble. "Rupert's going to glved me a dog. I don't like Sammy." A little pause, then the child said thoughtfully, "I'm glad I'm not a dog, mummy—specially Sammy's dog—because I've not gotten to eat my din-din out of his plate. And he can't kick me. I've saw him kick his horse in the stable that day he was throwed. I think he's a horrid man." epfp? Camilla had turned white. "You only care for the things Rpu pert gives you," she said, in a strangled voice then "Oh dear, how tired I am, and there is a dance to night! Why did I walk so far?" Indeed, she was a long time getting back to the gardens, and when they were reached, she asked that the car riage might be made ready at once to take her over to Lea, Abbey. When do you want to go to Lon don?" Katherine asked her as they went indoors together. Next week ... I don't know. I will write. It seems a sin to take the chicks away from here here. How well they look!" A little later, when she was getting into the carriage, Mrs. Lancing drew the girl towards her. "Don't let them forget me. Her voice had an odd, dry sound. "Don't let them suppose I am forget ting because they do not see me. Children can forget so easily." She pressed Katherine's hand. "It is funny," she said, in an uneasy way. "I never left them before without yearning to be back the moment they were out of sight but I leave them with you, almost happily, you funny little cross-patch Kathie." The governess looked at her. Once again there were tears in her eyes. "Come back soon," she said. "Come back: and let us make you well. We all want you." (Continued in Next Issue.)
