They all moved on together slowly.
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

"No, he has gone to build a hospital,
or buy up the whole country, as a
thanksgiving for our approaching wed

think a hospital is a very good idea?
I expect he imagines he may want it
before I have finished with him."

"Came back three" days ago," the
man answered rather shortly. "I
suppose Brenton will not mirid put
ting this animal up for me? He- can't
go much further."
"Where are you staying?" asked
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

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

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
"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
"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

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

enough to come near yon. yet you had
no hesitation whatever about sneak
ing my money when the time came
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
"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
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

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
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.
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
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

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
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
"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
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

then? Don't you bee now much worse

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."

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
And Katherine had frowned, and
then smiled.
"You know perfectly well I am not
grumbling at you. The idea Is ri
"Are you not?" he had queried, with
a smile. "Well, it sounded uncom

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

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

without her for a day or two."
They strolled out-of-doors to join
the children. Katherine was dream

they paused to listen to a lark piping

watched it drop to earth, Camilla
pinched the arm she held.
"Naughty Kathie," she said "you

The girl's eyes filled with tears.
"I am not a bit glad to see you

"How do I look?"
"Ill and miserable. ."
Camilla laughed.

"You only care for the things Rpu

Indeed, she was a long time getting
back to the gardens, and when they

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

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

The governess looked at her. Once
