I'niil Knjnt'N Eslntp. '' A pretty plnce! Well, yen; I llit tor mysclf it iR n prrtt y plnce now. You nre wondi'iinu Whf I shnuld lake, any credit to myself nhout il, but cxplainiu' ttint IdTO)T8I the ntory I promised you." Mr. Montgomery Pettled himaelf more c.omfortnhlv In liis arnichnir, nnd his eompaniorj snid: " Ah yes. Tlic romantie ftory of the Rayne estate. I have not forgotten tliat promise." "Yes! Odd pr nius Kiyne! We wcnt to eollepe toeethcr BDd wero good friendl, Whrn he went ahroad, nfter his fathcr died, hn gnve me charjre, of nll his affairs, for he was wealthy. The house and grounds we pasrd this morn ina are a pnrt of the old estate, the house one of the oldcst in this conntrv. There are pome bita of English furni ture there, hrouuht ove.r hefore the Hcvolution, that would make a col lector's niouth water. It was nn old fashioned plare when I'nul liayne's fatlier died, and as Panl had u hand tonio house in Philadelphia and a l trge income, it wns not stirprisinsr that he did not eare to hury himself at Poole ville. Rut he married, and lost his wife and two children with a mnliennnt fever. Then he came hack to the old plnce. He was not alone. Herman Rayne, the son of his hrothrr, long drad, came with bim, nnd nlso his wifc's (Hter, a tcrrihle oripple, whose mind wns enfeebled and hody mutilated by a fall. "Not to wearv you ton mncb with details, this the fnmtlv ten years aco, wben I'sul Rnvne rllad! Paul himself, Mifl IIi ndi rsnn. the erippled sister in law, Mrs. Clifford, the houe kceper, two srvants and la--t , I'ut far from lenst, Lottie Ilcndcrsnn, an or phan niece of the late Mrs. Hayne. Herman w.is in Paria, tinishing his lnediral studies. " For years hpfore his death Ptnl Rayne was a reclusc, a student from love of knowledire for its own sakp. He wrotp no books, lonKUl no opnortunity to sharp what he le 'rned. and seemed to liiive no Intereet In life outside of liis bome. Bnt in that home he made it the nim of his monoionoua existence to train Lottte In Intellectual pnrsuits. B'pss mv llfel I can see llie hnhv now, hefore she was seven years old. sittinsr at the srreat library tnble, itudying Lntin fframmar. Slie wnuhl slip away whpn I engaspd her uncle in conversa tion. and the next lime 1 saw her wou'd be rollinsr piecrust for Mrs. Clif ford. or knitlins socks, on thoporch. " She was the lovelicM little cr;ature I ever knew, and Paul Kayne loved her if she had been his own child. Yet, with the strange fatality so otlen niet in my profession, he kept puttinir off and puttinsr off makin? a new will and leaving her Independent. He often talked of it. "'Of courie, I want Lottie to marrv H r;nan,' he would say; ' bu) I shall not make any eondiHon. I will leave ber this house and ?30.000; and poor Clara' that was Mlsi ETenderaon ' mus t have a life income out of the es tate.' But. one mornlng. when Lottie w:i onlv nineteen, raul Rayne was fnund dead in his (tndv-obairf nnd the o"lv will in Pzistence wns on old one, nade before Lottie eame to Poolevllle, leav intr everytbing to Herman Rayne, " ' I suppnse I must eo away,1 the noor obtld Lottie said to me, aftcr tlie ruopral, "Wait until I hrar frnm Paria,' I paid; for 1 hoped Herman Rayne would ranv out his unele's in'entions. Hp W;s a wealtby nian from his falh"r's thare of the Rayne propertv, and I hoped he would not let Miss Hender son or Lottie suffer for his unele's ne gleet. "I was not altnsrethrr pleased wilh his lottcr. but Lottip was dellghted, " 1 1 shall not live at Pooleville, he wrolo. 'and eertainly ihould not d prive Miss Henderaon of a home. Will not Lottie stay as her oompanlon, at any lalary you niav iliink rlgnt?' " Lottie, as 1 said, was well pleaaed tostay: but you must let me explain my own resrets. At eigbteen Lottie was beautiful, a pure blonde, tall, eraceful and reflned to the verv tips of her arlltooratlo little lingers. For years the loylng pupil of a devoted teaeher, her acquirements were rather ma-cu-line. but few women cbooaing the course of study she had pursued. Her mnsle was her one reereation. an' that she nevet had been taught. Shp played and sansr bv par only, but ehe had won derful talent and power. " With all her knowledce of lan gunL'es, of deep research into manv ab Btruse studies, she was no bookworni. Mrs. Clifford had trained her in all womanly arts, of scwing and housc keeping, and she was esscntially wom anlv In disposition and tastes. "X'Av, it did not please me to have this lovely, winsome girl, at the vtry portals of womanhood, shut up in a gloomy house, a mile from any other retidence, the eompanion of an imbe Oile woman and the servants. You no Uced the heauty of the house and grounds to-day. Ten years ago it was the most dark and lonely abode you can imairinc. Tall trees surrounded the house on all aides, shutting out all suu light; the gardenwas a mere tangle of weeds and ftowera, growing as they would; the furniture was old and flooniy, and the only new things in the ousc were aome of the books and the grand piano. " And there Lottie livtd, devoting her tirne to the care of a feel)le, imtie cile oripple, whose only spark of reason aeemcd to be love for the girl. Slie would listen while Lottie aang or played. beating time with her poor Weble haud, noddlng and Binilin r; she would play baokgammon, with fngiit- ful disregard for all rule, but U(-ver ex hausting Lottie's patienee. Much of the time she slept, and then Lottie atudied. " ' For,' she said to me, 'of course, I eannot stay here always, and I want to tit mytelf to teach.' " We aeldom couxed her out, btoaute, althou.'h she waa cheerfu! and paiieut, ahe grieved for her adopted uncle as for a father, and her deep mourulng was an i xcuae for decliuing all invita tions. lluing an old hachelor in n boardiug-houae, I could offur her no :ena roeaTU colomn.j llbberttstmcnts. mm UaMf UHalMrl, Irilcui Mv, A hoM reoovciy wm a maml lo hl neighbon, wrltes a grateful letter lo Di Kenuedy, "Weli pnto death with ttomaeh, llvar aail ktd pejr troubl .

Every case was as earafully (ended s if it was the only one. and the patienls were friends frotii the beginning, His puis.i was opeu for all dhnreea, anl I could never calculate the churity he exercised, both profes ion illy and priviiti ly. " Il lid not surprise me that Lottie oon began to btuhten up when the doetor paid his daily visii to her aunt AlthOOgh Mrs. Clifford was a perfect Mrs. Grnndy for propriety, alwayi belng ln attendanoe, the young hearts, it wns evident, were mulually attracted, and I began to build castles in the air for my favorite. " It was sprinstime when Dr. Gar liii( t caine to Pooleville, aud durin;,' the summer he most eertainly made the burden of life far more cndurnble to poor Miss Henderaon, while Lottie's pale cheeks hloomed anew in the added air and exercise she ohtained in attendlng her aunt on the walks aud lotii.' drives the doetor ordered for her. ' llut, in the winter, a longetanding lung complaint, from whioh Mi8 Ilm deraon suffered, developed into con Inmption, and there was no hope she would see another summer. She faileil vtry gradtia'lv. vcry palnlesaly, Even 1, who saw her every day, could tcaroely mark the itepa that wre had- Ing her from her narrow, sufferiiii,' life to the more perfect oue beyond the grave. ' Lottie was the most faithful nurse, lovim.' aud devoted, and the iuvalid clung to her with a trust that was very t. uching. It had always been Lottie's pride to have her aunt tieatly and taste fully dreised, and she was doubly careful now that the coutinement to the house gave her an exeuse for invalidiah cos tunies. The softest of white, knit ihawla was alwayi draped over the white embroidered wrapper, and the snowy bair imootblv folded under her !retiy lace caps. Herman Rayne had allowed his cliarge an ample income, uiid Lottie conseientiously devotid il lo tht Invalid'l sole use. March was nearlyover vrhen Miss Hendenon died. The day after ihe funeral I was trriting to Herman Rayne when Dr. (iarduer came into my ofiace. ''I am writlng to Itiyue,' I said. ' Have you any message?' ' ' None.

I have just left her. Yl,u must have seen, long ago, that 1 loved her.' " ' I suspected it.' "'Tttice before I have asked her to beoome my wife, but she thought her duty compelled her to devote her life to her aunt. That duty over, she eon f'esses now that she loves me.' " ' I am beartlly glad,' I sai.i. '''Thanks,, was the quick, cordial reply. ' Yon are hcr best friend, I know, But1 and he smiled 'you need not Beud that letier ali the wuy to Paris, merely to come back. Have my uiue years abroad tntirely changed me, Uncle Robert?'

We will walk over to thc church this afteruoon, Un cle Robert. Will ou be there lo give the bride away? I must return to Paris for a few months; so that will be onr weddiug trip.' " And that," continued the old law yer, " explains why I say I flatter ruy self that tlie old house is so improved. Hermau Ilayne asked me to make il a home for ihem when they should retnrn to Pooleville, aud they reside here most of the time. Sometimes they spcnd a few winter weeks in Philadel phia, but their work is here." "Thcir work?" "Yes, they are no droues in the world's hive.

The old lawyer paused a moment, aud then added : " It was all well for Lottie! llut I still say that Paul Rayne slinwod a culpable negleit when he failed to make a will, aud that all men so situ ateil Hhould think seriously of the re spoiisibility they shirk hy leaviug such a duty too long negUoted." tnna Shitlda, i New Yurk Lcdyer. bbcrtiscmcnts.
