"After all, Lucy, It is not such a very
difticult journey. It is only a hundred
miles or so, and there is no change) and
if you only sit still and take care not to
get your fingers jammed in the doorway,
I really cannot see what barm can happen
"Ilunh, Auntie! Do, pleaaer I am not
quite a baby!" And as she said thin, the
8eaker, a pretty, shy-looking girl of 18,
glanced anxiously at an old gentleman
who was silting in the far corner of the
carriage, to see if he had beard her aunt's
counsels and fenrs, and if he thought
them two hilly women nut fit to travel, and
not very well able to take) care of tliem
eelves. The old gentleman had his Timf,
bis frit'trd'ty AVnVic, hiuI Sjwtnlor on Imh
knee and looked placidly Uiiignant. It
was doubtful if ho had board Aunt Es
ther's hints if he bad, they did not ap
pear to ntir any emotions of conloint.it.
Lucy turned back to the window and
Aunt Esther, who was now gazing earn
estly and anxiously in lier face.
"l)ear child," said she, "I am foul
ing very uncomfortable, I do so wish I
had just left everything and gone with
you. I shall not know a happy moment
till 1 hear the train hnsgot safely to Litch
field. And, Lucy, have you got the stamp
ed envelope I gave you? the one I ad
dressed for you, you know?'1 recommenc
ed Aunt Esther, und then she sighed her
relief as Lucy produced it. "Ah, yes. you
have it j but Lucy, darling here-give a
porter this shilling to put the envelope in
the j mst for yon. There is sure to 1h a
Mter-liox in the Mat ion. but mind you
watch him do it ; stand ami watch him,
dear, and see the letter drop in."
"Yes, yes, Aunt," whisjH'red Lucy. "But
how ran yon be so anxious! Everyone
will think "
I am anxious, I can't help it j ami, Lu
cy, you promise me faithfully you will
write every "
"The train ie going," cried Lucy. "Oh,
do take care! Good-bye! Yes, I will
write." And in a minute more it started,
and all that Aunt Esther could do was to
stand and l'k after the great iron mon
ster as it shrieked and tore away with her
Lucy looked down, and for some time
she thought of no One but "jmor, dear
Aunt Esther;" then she enjoyed the pros
pect of the happy days and weeks which
lay before her 5 and then, before settling
down to her railway novel, she glanced at
her companion, but to her horror and
amazement bis eyes were fixed on her
face and they were full of kindness and
interest. Lucy blushed. She felt as if
she had been detected in trying to espy
one secret of his. He did not turn away
he looked encouraging.
"Vou have not made many journeys
alone, lady?" said he.
"No, riot even one until to-day."
"If I can be of any frviee to you, you
must command me," he continued. Lucy
looked at his white hair, and thought it
would not bo quite fair if she in her bright
youth were to inqiose inuny tabks on his
seventy ami odd years.
"I am even older than you perhapa
think," naid be, "but still I am not too old
to do anything you may ask me."
"But how do you know what 1 wa
thinking?" inqiiirod Lucy, very simply.
"You were thinking 'nor, old man, he
is seventy, at least;1 but, lady, I am seventy-eight
; and the reason that I know
what you are thinking is localise you are
the kind of jieison whose thoughts I do
understand little I mean bettor than
I understand tho thoughts of most peo
ple." Lucy drew bark. Sho thought thiswnfl
nil oild way to talk, ami that it was not
very nice to be shut up in a railway
carriage for more than a hundred miles
with a person who talked in an odd way.
"No, lady," raid he, "do not think amis
of what I say. 1 will explain. When 1
was young 1 saw a great deal of I menu
1 was very intimate with a young lady
of your age, and you are much more liko
her than anyone 1 have met during my
whole long life."
Lucy was interested, much interested,
but, had the uncomfortable fooling Hint it
was wrong to be so- that this old gentle
man was "very strange and rude, and
talked in a way that no one wlin was not
an old, old friend, or a relation ought to
talk, and that if Aunt Ksther did but
know;" but here she was interrupted.
"Vou are wrong again," said he. "I
ppeak in a way you jtorhapa think strange
but it is only localise I talk frankly an. I
naturally. I do not mean to shock or an
"Oh, no," began Lucy.
"Would you like to see (he SjifHidoif
asked the stranger, and Lucy felt herself
put in her place as a good little girl who
was not quite grown up enough to 1 en
titled to talk for any length of time to
gentlemen, especially to very old ones,
but who was not on that account to be
cut off from all tho tender rharitiea of
life. So she took her tirtator meekly,
and turned its pages one by one, and tried
to make herself think she liked the polit
ical articles, and was interested in tho
middles, anil did not dislike the reviews)
but being at that time not very fond of
reading, she hail but poor success. After
about an hour, and not till then, she again
looked up, and again saw tho old gentle
man's eyea Kcanuing her face with an ex
pression of intense but most melancholy
pleasure. "I l,eg yon r pardon," said ho,
"1 do, indeed, hut 1 cannot help it; you
reslly are an like her."
"Like whom!" said Lucy, rather inma
"Like the young lady wo wore speak
ing of jiint now," said he, an if that wore
"But who was she?" inquired Lucy with
increased, but on the whole well-cotieealed
"I was engaged to her," he replied.
Lucy was silent, hhe did not like to
pay, "Thou why in the mtmn of all that Is
sensible (ilil you not marry her and leave
me in peace?" but that was what she
thought. Ho was quite silent, and as this
silence lasted, she looked Interrogatively
into hid face (he was now opposite). "She
died," he said, and Lucy felt miserable.
"1 do so hog your pardon," she stam
mered. "No, no; it is altogether my fault, or
would be if there were any fault. It does
not hurt me to talk about her. I like it.
It does mo good now, I mean. Twenty
years ago I did not much like to sjuk
of her; forty years ago I could not have
done it for the world ; but I can talk well
enough now. Why, consider, it won't be
long liofore I pee her."
Lucy wondered if he were mad. She
was afraid he was almost sure that he
"No, lady," said he, "I am not mad
don't start, or be vexed. It is because
you are ho like her so truly likeher.that
1 know what you are thinking other ieo
ple may think what they like, or do what
they like, it makes no diflerence to me. I
know and care nothing alxmt it; but old
as I am, I know your thoughts you are
of her sort."
"I do so wish I were not," was Lucy's
first thought, for be oppressed her; then
hho was ashamed of herself. "It must
have been a great grief," said sho, and
then she despised herself for her com
monplace and inadequate sympathy.
"A grief! Yes, of course it was a grief,
but it hapiened fifty years ago."
"Fifty years ago! Lucy sighed. Fifty
years henco where would she lie! Now
she was whirling away to pay a pleasant
virit, and her life bad known no sorrow.
When sho looked backwards her thoughts
dwelt on happy, tranquil days, unclouded
by any shadow when she looked forward
there was a prospect of happiness with
out end, for she was going to her sister's
at Ila.lewood, near Litchfield, and when
there she would have two balls, and some
picnics and archery meetings, and best of
all, she would often see Roliert Merivale,
and she sometimes ventured tothinkthat
Rolert Merivale cared very much to see
her. While enjoying these anticipations,
she remembered the old gentleman opjio
siteand his lost love of fifty years ago,and
that there was much pain and misery in
this world of ours what if some of it
came to her? She felt very sorry for him
and said kindly, "Will you toll me some
thing about her?" Whereupon he told
her in irfect!y simple words the story of
his love and loss.
Ashe spoke she liked him more and
more, and before he had finished she
found herself wishing she was his daugh
ter, or anyone who might have the privi
lege of comforting him. She was very si
lent, very quiet, but two or three big
tears rolled down her face. He made no
apparent demand on her sympathy ; he
told his story quietly, but he know that
she felt for him. "So," said he, "all that
was left for me to do, was to go patiently
through life, trying to make some other
lives happier than mine had lieen. I
spend most of my time in Cumlrland f
like lioing there." Then he described his
home there, until Lucy felt as if she hal
, never seen such scenery before; and then,
and by this time they were quite giwl
friends, he said, "Now tell me something
"I seem to have so little to tell," said
Lucy. "I live with the aunt you saw.
We live at Highgate. I have neither fa
ther nor mother, nor anyone but aunt Ks
ther and one sister. My father and my
mother died in India when we were ba
bies and aunt Esther brought us up. Let
tice married three years ago. She is very
nice; not exactly as you would exect
though, for she says such very odd things,
just when you think she is looking on ev
erything just as yon do."
"What kind of things, lady ! I like to
have everything explained."
"1 hardly know worldly things, or
worldly-wise things she has what she
calls tact, too; but she is older than I am,
and knows all about what (he world or so
ciety, or whatever it is which makes itself
so disagreeable sometimes, expects you to
do on all occasions. 1 like her husband
"And doos ho know all slmut the
world?" asked the old gentleman, smiling.
"I daresay ho does, but he doos not go
on aliout it so, and he is always trying
to be kind to everyone. He knows I am
dull at home, so he has boon planning all
kinds of pleasures for mo."
"But are you dull at home?" he ssked,
for this was the very first sign of dissatis.
faction with tho world as it was that Miss
Lucy had shown.
"I dull! Certainly not! Lettice and
her husband are always telling me I
must lie dull, and when I stay with them
and find dances and picniea and garden
parlies going on everyday, I begin to
think myself I must have had a very dull
life at home, but when I go back I have
no time to think of such a thing."
"Hut what do you do!"
"I draw and paint and garden for we
have a groat, big garden, three times tho
size of our drawing-room and I practice
and work, and we have Ixioks from Mu-die's-l
can't tell you what I do, but I am
"And you have no anxieties, no disap
"1 was very anxious a week or two since
when we lost our dog, but it came home
three days afterward with a bit of rojni
tied round its neck; that is the only anx
iety 1 ever had; but I have plenty of dis
appointments, for nearly everything I
plant in the garden dies!"
Lucy was Incoming more and more con
fident ial, when all at once sho caught sight
of a large country house alxmt a mile
from the railway, with trees behind it,
and gardens and shrubberies in front, and
on this she fixed her gaze so earnestly that
she entirely forgot to finish one of her
"We are very near Litchfield now," said
she, when this place was out of sight, "for
that house Is only six miles ofT."
The old gentleman had boon watching
her eager little face all the while with an
amused smile. "Whose property is that ?"
Simple Miss Lucy looked up quite sur
prised that he had noticed her interest in
it and aald "Sir Richard Merivale's."
"And he Is one of your lsl' partners,
then, la he!"
'Sir Richard Merivale! Why Vie Is old
and gouty and the, evossest man In the
"Then his son or his mqihew is?"
Lucy blushed-this old man wbs too
clever by half! "But," ho continued, "if
we are ho nenr Litchfield I am afraid I
shall soon lose the pleasure of your com
pany. How long did you say you were
going to stay here?"
"Exactly three months in just three
months from this very day, I am, if all
goes well ; to return home to Aunt Es
ther." "This is thelfith of June."
"Yes, and I am to go back on the 15th
of Soptomlier. The time is fixed bo ex
actly, beraiiHO Ratio Williams a friend of
mine is to le married on the 17th, and I
am to 1 one of the bridesmaids."
"The 1.1th of Soptomlier" repeated the
old gentleman. "Well, it is quite possible
that I may lie returning from Cumberland
alxiut that very time if so, I'll remem
ber the day and come then. We should
no doubt travel by the same train. What
time do you start?"
"At three o'clock in the afternoon, gen
erally." "Keepto your day, lady. I'll rememlier
it, and if your sister is with you it will lie
so much the better. I should like to see
"She is almost certain to lie with me
she and Katie are great friends."
The old gentleman took out his note
Uiok arid wrote "Septendier 1.1." Then he
said "My name is Hugh Kenriek; 1 have
the disadvantage of having two homes,
one in bondou, which I have just left, and
theotherat ('aldei-wafer. That's where I
am going - go where I will, though, I am
Lucy looked up she did not like to say
it, but. she was thinking, "It is odd that
you should be so much alone when you
are so very free aliout making acquaint
ances." "No, he said, "I am always alone. If I
have sjHilion to you I do not seak to ev
eryone. I've told you why 1 was drawn
to you. Now, while I have my pencil
ready, tell me your name I have told

"Daughter of "
"Daughter of Major-Genera! Lewis II

I told you that liefore."
And you live "
"At No. 6 Beatrice Villas, Highgate,
with my aunt, Miss Esther Moore."
All that went down in the note-lxiok.
"Well, said he, if we do not travel home
together this day three months, perhaps I
may some day see you in London that is
if good Miss Esther Moore will permit it
but who knows what may hapjien in
"Who, indeed?" thought Lucy; but her
wonders were sent in a brighter direction
They bade each other farewell. The
train stopjied, a pretty young matron of
one-and-twenty clasjied Lucy in a sister
ly embrace, and when, after a minute or
ho devoted to the joy of this meeting, Lu
cy remembered Mr. Kenriek, and said
Oh, Lettice, I should so like to introduce
you to an old gentleman I have traveled
with from London.''
' Mrs. Lettice only said hurriedly "But
ryour luggage, Lucy ought we not to
think of that?"
"Indeed, yes," cried Lucy, and with a
glance at that venerable white head, and
ft smile of farewell, she hastened to the
Lucy's three month's leave of absence
was almost over. The 14th of September
bad come, and on the Mth she was to re
turn to London and Aunt Esther. Her
visit had len a very happy one, a very
gay one, too, and even tliegayety was not
quite at end, for this very night there was
to ho a large ball at Haolwood, her broth
er's house. Roliert Merivale was coming
to it. He had been constantly at HmzIo
wood since Lucy's arrival, so constantly
that there was no difficulty in guessing
that his visits had a definite object. But
no guessing was needed, for his courtship
was conducted so openly that it was quite
an understood thing I hat he was very fond
of Lucy, and Lucy did not attempt to con
ceal the pleasure that his society gave
her. No one had said anything to
her aliout his frequent visits. She was
young and shy, and not like other girls,
her sister, Mrs. Moslyn, said; other girls
liked lieing teased aliout such things, Lu
cy did not. Still as this is the last day
of her visit, und as this night must settle
all, for Robert Merivale would certainly
projKisp to her liefore she wont, Mrs. Mos
lyn thought she might be allowed to say
one little won! to her own sister, and
dashed into the subject at once.
"Well, Miss Lucy, you know liost, but I
cannot help thinking that, your faithful
Robert Merivale is very fond of you."
Lucy hail humbly hoped the same for a
long time. She hung her head ; she did
not know, she said, she had often won
dered. "You need not wonder much about a
thing that is clear as daylight, cried her
brisk sister. "I know all aliout affairs of
this kind of course I do. I tell you
once for all, he is as fond of ynu as a
man can Is-, and that, he is certain to pro
jiose to you. There can benodoubt alxmt
that, and I should say that he intends to
do it this very night."
"Oli, do hush, Lettice!" cried Lucy. "It
is so horrible to talk in that way, or even
to think "
"Don't you think ?" said the irrepressible
married lady. "Who can help thinking?
If pooplo do not want you to think they
Bhould not behave in such a very marked
manner. Why only last Tuesday I heard
But Lucy ran away, to do something to
her ball dress, she said, but in reality to
escaj from the outspoken lady down
stairs, who j nt her own timid, half-thought-out
thoughts into plain straight
Her dress, a very vaporous while one,
was lying on her lied. She had never
had a prettier. It wanted nothing
nothing wanted any attention but her
thoughts, which were in a very bewilder
ed state. "He must care for me!" said
she to herself. I do liolieve I am the hap
piest girl in the world!"
It wan quite true that ever since Lucy
came to Ila.lewoixl, Roliert Merivale had
showed her such attention that no one
could misunderstand it. He had told her
that he eared more for her good opinion
than for thai of anyone hIho In the world ;
that be could only lie said to live when in
her piesonee; that at other times he
merely waited in dull impatience un
til his next period of real lite came. Did
people foci in this way aliout people, un
less they loved them? If 1 1 he said
nay, if half he mid--were true, would ho
not always try to keep her with him?
He was his own master ho had neither
father nor mother, but when not staying
with his uncle lived on hisown little prop
erty Home twenty miles further to the
north. Sho was mor, she knew, but, he
was not, and hu had no hard-hearted fa
ther to remind him of her short-comings
in tho way of fortune, and she was a ludy
hy hirtli and education. There was notn
ing to prevent them from lieing happy,
and Aunt Esther should come tolive with
them and lie happy too.
While Lucy was sitting thus In her own
room, dreaming away tho afternoon, a
note was put in her sister's hand. It was
from Mr. Robert Merivale, and ran as fol
"Ukak Mrs. Muktyn; I cannot bring- my

Her husband came. She thrust the
letter into his hand, but would hardly
give him a chance of reading it, for she
exclaimed, "We have this ball to-niht,

anil there ate no end of things we ought
to think als'ttt ; but never mind, let ev
erything take its chance, and jutt you
ride over to Foxtown and horsewhip this
creature! I never read such an alsiinin
able letter in my life!"
Milder counsels prevailed. Silence
and life-long contempt were considered
sufficient punishment for Robert Merivale.
It was a bad case. For three months he
had done everything in his jmwer to con
vince Lucy that he loved her, and now he
wrote this letter.
'You must riot tell her aliout it to-day,"
said Mr. Mostyn, hastily. "He very care
