"You have said too much already,

''I'll take very Rood care that there

And 1 must say I think it is very rude
and heartless of yon, Nicholas, to want
to hand me over to "Home other man,' as
if I was a hook or a parcel! 'Smne
other man.' indeed!" winds up Miss
Darling, with a tinal sob and a heavy
increase of righteous wrath.
' lint what is to he done?" asks Nich
olas, distractedly, though inexpressibly
cheered by these professions or loyalty
and devotion. "Your pcoplo won't
bear of it."
"Oh, yes, tin -v will." returns Poatio,
emphatically. ' They w ill probably hear
a great deal of it! 1 shall speak of it
morning, noon, ami night, until out of
sheer vexation of spirit they will come
in a body and entreat you to' remove me.
Ah!" regretfully, "if only 1 had a for

and then Dorothy says, gently,

would but come to our aid and help us
to confound our enemies!''
"1 am afiaid there is only one fairv

says Nicholas, with a faint smile,
smoothing back her pretty, hair with
lovimr lingers, and gazing' fondly into
the blue eyes that have grown so big
and earnest during their discussion.

She opens the door, and runs almost
into Mona's arms, who is evidently
searching for her everyw here.
"Ah! now I have disturbed you," says
Mrs. (ic'dTiey, pathetically, 'to whom
lovers are a rare delight and a sacred
study. "How stupid of me! Sure, you
needn't have come out, when you knew
it was only inc. And of course he wants
you. poor dear fellow. 1 thought you

"It doesn't matter, i'onie up-stairs
witii me. Mona. I want to tell you all
about it." says Poatie. The reaction
has set in. and she is again tearful, and
reduced almosr to despair.

"Thai's right, then, "saysMona, quite
pleased at her success,
Violet, coining in a few moments
later, finds them still discussing the all
"It is unfortunate for every one,"
sa s Violet, disconsolately, sinking into
a low chair. "Such a dear house, and

She shrugs her shoulders with genuino
"You mean the Australian?" says
Dorothy. "Oh, as for him. he is per

" I don't suppose any one will tuke the
slightest notice of him," says Violet;
"that is one comfort."
"I dun l know that; Lilian ('hot woode

'That is because Nicholas will insist
on proving to every one he bears him
no malice, ami speaks of him persist
ently us his cousin, Well, he may be
his cousin; but there is a limit to every
thing." says Violet, with a slight frown.
"That is Just what is so noble about
Nicholas." leturus Doalie, quickly.

to nobody but Nicholas himself; no

"The dav is done, and the darkness
falls from" the wings of night." The
linsk is slowly creoMiig up overall tli8
land; the twilight is coming on apace.
Shadows come and go, and eerie
thoughts oppress the breast:
'Whilst the m-rltch-owl, nerltcblng loinl,

In rDinoiiihrrtiioc ot a Hlirmid."
"What a wretched evening!'' hiivs
Violet, with a little shiver. "Geoffrey,
draw the cm tains closer." .
"A lit ending to a miserable day,"
savs l,adv Ivodney, gloomily.
"Night has always the efloot of Mak
ing bad look worse," says Poatie, with
sad attempt at cheerfulness. "Never
mind; morning will soon he here again."
"Hut why should night produce mel
ancholy?" says Nicholas, dreamily. "It
is but a rellection of the greater light,
after all. What does Uichter call it?
'The great shadow and profile of dav.'
It is our own morbid fancies that make
us dread it."
"Nevertheless, close the curtains,
Geoffrey, and ask Lady Hodney if she
would riot like tea now," says Violet,
f nl to riwf.
Somebody pukes the tiri. until a crim
son light streams through the room.
The huge logs are good-naturedly in
clined, and burst their great sides in an
endeavor to promote more soothing
" What a miserable day we have liadl"
says Nolly, rousing himself. "It's been
raining since early dawn. I feel right
down ( heap, very nearly as depressed
as last night vvho'n Nicholas stuck me
to dance with the ,Ksthetic."
"Ladv 1 alias I'.aton.you mean?" asks
Ladv Hodney. "'I hat reminds me, we
are bound to go over thert to-morrow.
At least, some of us."
"Mona must go," savs Nicholas,
quickly. "Lady Lilias made a point of
it. Yini will go, Mona?"
"I should very much like to go." says
Moiuj. gently, and with somo eagerness.
She has been sitting very quietly with
her hands before her, harlly hearing

Toor infant! It is her first essay,"
says Nolly, pitifully. "Wait till to-nior-row

you do no,v. Your cheerful com
plaisance in this matter is much to be
admired. And Nicholas should be
grateful. Hut I think you will tind one

"You u.-ed to be tremendous friends
theie at one time." says Geoff ley;
"never out of the house."
"I used to stay there occasionally
when old Lord Diiintree was alive, if
you mean that." says Nolly, merkly.
"As far as I can recollect. I "was always
shipped there when naughty, or trouble
some, or in the way at home; and as a
rule I was always in the way. There is
a connection between the Latons and
my mother, and Anadale saw a good
deal of me off and on during the holi
days. H v,u a. uort of rod in pickle, or

Dorothy from her corner laughs gay-

later years, ami made turn the melan
cholv' object he is."'
"Well, vou know, it was much too
much, it was ically," says Mr. Par
ling, very earnestly". "Mis. Geoffrey,
won't you come to rny rescue?"
"Mrs. Geoffrey, thus addressed, rouses
herself, and say's. "What can I do for
you?" in a far-away tone that proves
iihe has been in 'thought-land miles
away from every one.
Through her" brain some words are
surging. Her mind has gone back to
that scene in the conservatory last night
when she and Haul Kodnev had been to
gether. What was il jie had said?
What were the exact words he had ii'jod?
She lays two lingers on her smooth

only of bewildered thought, contract its

Was there any Haw, any damning clause
anywhere in all this "careful plot, so
cleverly constructed to bring rum upon
the heads of llicse people who have
crept into her tender lieart?
"Where are you now, Mona?" asks
Geoffrey, suddenly, laying his baud
with a loving pressure on her shoulder.
"In Afghanistan, or Timbuetoo? Far
from us. at least." There is a littio
vague reproach and ujieasineaa in his

variation in bis tone, awaking from her

the word 'scheme?' Would an honest
man (surely he would not) talk of
"Well thai i lather a dilllcult ques

sieur de Lcsseps. when dreaming out
the Suez Canal, called it a scheme; and
he. I presume, is an honest man.
Whereas, on I he other side, if a burglar
wi re arranging to steal all your old
silver, 1 suppose he would call that a
scheme too. What have you on the
brain now, darling? You are not going
to defraud your neighbor, I hope?''
"It is very .strange." says Mona. with
adissatislie'd sigh; "hut I'll tell you all
about il by ami bv."
Instinct warns her of treachei y; com
mon sense belies the warning. To
which shall she give ear?

Mona. with hesitation. "I didn't qui'te

fact, on a regular 'champ,' because It
vexed Tricksy New-combo, whose own
particular he was in the way of 'pals.' "
Everybody laughs. In fact, Nolly
"Did she stop there?" ho says; "that
was unworthy of her. Ureal h 'for once
must have failed her, as nothing so
trivial as want of words could have In
fluenced Miss Carson."
"You should have been Mona," says
Geoffrey. "She opened her eyes and
her lips, and razed llxedly upon the
lively Ldith. Curiosity largely mingled
with awe depicted itself upon her ex
pressive countenance, stie was won

quer that extraordinary jargon before

"Hut it surelv wasn't English, was it?
That is not the way everybody talks,
'Everybody, says Geoffrey. "thaWs.

that sort of thing."
"Then you are not a nice person your
self." "I am far from it, I regret to say; hut
time cures all things, and I trust to that
and careful observation to reform me."
"Ann I am to say 'pals' for friends,
and call it pure English?"
"It is not more extraordinary, surely,
than calling a drunken young man
'light,' " says Lady Itndney, w ith calm
but cruel meaning.
Mona blushes painfully.
"Well, no; but that is pure Irish."
says GeolVrev, unmoved. Mona, wilh

round and round upon her linger, and
repents bitterly that little slip of hers

"If I must.ask Edith Carson I shall
feel I am doing something against ray

"We have all to do that at times."
'savs Sir Nicholas. "And there is an
other person, mother. 1 shall be glad if
you will send a card to."
"Certainly, dear; who is it?"
"Haul Hodney." replies he, verv dis
tinctly. "Nicholas!" cries his mother, faintly;
"this is too much."
"Nevertheless, to oblige me," entreat?
"JJut this is morbid.-u foolish pride,"
protests sho. passionately, whilst all the
others are struck dumb at this sugges
tion from Nicholas. Is his brain failing?
Is his intellect growing weak, that he
should propose such a thing? Even
Doatie, who as a rule supports Nicho
las through evil report and good, sits si
lent and aL-hast at his proposition.
"What has he done that he should be
excluded?" demand:! Nicholas, a little
excitedly. 1 If lie can prove a first right
to claim' this property, is that a crime?
He is our cousin; whv should we be the
only people in the whole country side to
treat him with contempt? He lias com

"Everything shall be just as you wish

covered meaning hauut Mona's brain.
"A splendid scheme." A vile conspir

strumental in saving these people from
rum. among whom her lot has been
cast! Hut how weak her arm! How in
sutlicienl her mind to cope wilh an erner
geiicy like this!
About half-past twothe next day they
start for Anadale. Not Violet, or Cap
tain Hodney, who have elected to go on
a mission of their own. nor Nicholas,
who has gone up to London.
Hut before thev reach the hall door
Geoffrey feels it his duty to bestow up
on them a word or two 'of warning.
"nw, look here," he says, impress
ively; "I hope nobody is going to in
dulge in so much as a covert smile to
day." He glances severely at Nolly,
who is alreadv wreathed in smiles.
I localise the J',:,lhetic won't have it.
She wouldn't hear of it at any price.
We must all bo intense! If you don't
understand what that means. Mona,
you had better learn at once. You are
to be silent, wrapt, lifted far above all
the vulgar commonplaces of life. Yon
may. if you like, go into a rapture over
a colorless pebble, or shed tears of joy
above a sickly lily; but avoid ordinary
"The only time I shed tears," says
Mr. Darling, irrelevantly, "for many
years, was when 1 heard of the old
chap's death. And they were drops of
run content. IJo you know I think un
consciously he impregnated her with
her present notions; because he was as
like an 'ancient Iiriton' himself before
he died as if he had posed for it."
"He was very eccentric, but quite
correct," says Lady Hodney, reprov
ingly. "lie was a man who never took off his
hat." begins Geoffrey.
"Hut why?" asks Mona, in amaze
ment. "Didn't he wear one?"
"Yes. but he always doffed it; and he
never put one on like ordinary mortals,
he always donned it. You can't think
what a difference it makes."
"What a silly boy you are, Geoff,"
says his wife, laughing,
"Thank you, darling," replies he,
"Hut what is Lady Lilias like? I did
not notice her the other night," says
"She has got oivi noso and two eves,
just like every one else." says Nolly.
"1'hat is rather disappointing!; is itnoi?
And she attitudinizes a good deal.
Sometimes sh reclines full length upon
the grass, with her bony elbow well
squared and her chin buried in her
palm. Sometimes she stands beside a
sun-dial, w ith her head to one side, and
a caret ully educated and verv much
hiineraniiualed peacock beside her. Hut
I dare say she w ill do the greyhound
pose to-day. In summer she goes
nl, road with a huge wooden fan with
which she kills the bumble bee as it
lloats by her. And she gowns herself
in colors that make one's teeth on edge.
I am sure it is her life-long regret that
she must clothe herself at all. as she has
dreams of savage nakedness and a lib
eral use of the fetching wowl."
"My dear Oliver," prot cists Jjii'iy rum
"If she "presses refreshments on vou,
Mona, say 'No, thank you," without bes

haste, seeing I hey are near their jour

At this point Ihe house comes in
view, and onnvorsai ion languishes. The
women give a small touch to their furs
and laces, the men indulge in a final
yawn that is to last them until the
gates of Anadale close behind them

It savors ot dust and feudal days. Every

and all try to look as if the entire hoire
of their existence is centeied in the
thought that they shall soon lay longing
eves on I'llilippa, w hose name is in re
ality Anne, but who has been re-christ-Cnerl
by her enterprising sister. Anne
is all very well for every-day life, or for
Hliie-beard's si-tor-in-law; but I'lolippa
is art to the very highest description. So
I'! ilippa she is, poor soul, whether she
likes it or not.
She has sprained her ankle, and is
now lying on a couch in a small drawing-room
as the Hoduev sare ushered in.
She is rather glad to see them, as lite
with an "intense" sister is at tunes try

home. So she smiles upon them, and
manages to look as amiable as plain
pimple ever can look.
The drawiiig-rooin is veiy much the
same as the ordinaiyrun of drawing

Liuas, she notices a shudder of disgust
run through her frame.
"I really cannot help it," she explains
to Mona, in her usual slow voice, "it all

Here and there are basins of water on
which lilies can lie and sleep dreamily
through a wann and sunny dav. A sun

uproars itself upon a chilly bit of sw ard.
Near it lie two gaudy peacocks fast

drowsy, careless, indifferent to the
