We looked each other satealy In the f-e 1 In her eyes there were anger. irritation, an curiosity; in miae-I telt it-there was powe For the first time we met as social equals; b I must not say m. Then she glanced at th white bundle in my arms "What have you been doing up-stairs!" a asked. "I sent r you some time sunce, an was told that you had been in the lumbe, rooms all the aftereooa. What have you bee doingi I do not know what may be ther and I do not le ay person to go pryinl about the house au have done." I looked at her wonder. It was of m house she was spa the house sad all I contained, were mie, cot hers; but for 8! Adrian's sake I must not proclaim It I e. that her anger was at a wnite heat in al probability Lady Aditha bad been speaking a me again, and Irritating her against me. "What have you been doing In the: rooms l" she demanded. "I went first to look for my box. since you ladyship has decided to send me from the oni! home I have in the world. I could not dnd it but I have been looking over the contents a the rooms." "An exceedingly Impertineat thing? Yoe had no right to do anything of the kind," s:e said angrily. "What would she say," I thought, "If sh: knew what I had found there-if she knei what I had wrapped in apparently carele: fashion in my aprono What a fall her pridl would have!" And I cou:d not prevent th: exultation I felt from showing Itself In mj eyes. She saw it, and grew even more curt ous. "What have you there?" she demanded. "I decline to tell you, Lady Caryl," I a, swered firmly. "It Is something that belongs not to you, but to myself." "You have taken it from those rooms!" sh iled. "I have; but it Is my own," I returne .almly. "Nothing here is your own," she said hotly, her face growing pale with anger; "everythin belongs to me. You have no right to carry from this house a single thing without my permission." Involuntarily my hands cosed round my white apron and its contents. I knew that : was going to destroy the papers; but for those few minutes I felt proud of the knowledge that I was mistress of the house and all t cor tained. "Will you let me pass, Lady CarylPU "No," she exclaimed; "you shall not --ass until I know what you have there wrapped up in your spro." '"Then I shall have to stay henr for ever, a I shall show what I have to no one." "You will show It to me," she said, bitin her lip. I paused for a few momenta to consider the position. It would d serve her right Kt let her see the papers; a for a moment the temptation to show them to her was sarng; but I had resolved to make the sarins for my lover's sake. "I have no wish to threaten or to usen v lence," her ladyship went on more calmly "hut I will se what you have there. If you refuse to show me, I shall sead for the butler and one of the footman, and they shall take It from you." 3Of course she could do that, and In the hands of two strng ea I should be pow- less. They would take the decuments frhu me ia a Istant, and then- Ah, my love with the bonnie blue eyes, that should seve beI I clasped the little parcel mre tightly. "Lady Caryl," I implored, "be ust to me. I swear to you that what I have here beloongs to me, and to no one else. Please let me pass and go free. I will leave the house, ad never return." But she weald mot listea to my appeal. I saw that she was debating la her mina whether she should take my parcel from me by for or aot, but evidently her sess of propriety con "I must sad wi see what yoare secreting thre," she said, knitting her brows. "-hones at one. I shall either cal the men or you mst giv to me a your own ree will what you have hIdden there."

"And I, Adrian," said Lady Caryl, "call upon you to help me to assert my authority, and to force that rebellious girl to obey me, and tll me what she is carrying from that room. " "Sir Adrian!" I ced. "My son!" appealed Lady CaryL He looked from one to the other in great dil. tress, at a loss what to say, Ind guant for my sake. yet his respect for his mother preventing him from uttering one word that would offend her. "Grads, he saie at last, I am quite saur that what you have there is your own. I do not doubt your word. but could you not as my mother wishes it, tell her what you have in your apron i" It was hard to have to refuse his request; hut I must do It to save him. "I am so very sorry," I replied: "hbedeed T cannot, Sir Adrian." "You see, Adrian," observed her ladyship, "that she will not and dares not." He looked deeply grieved, but turned to Lady CaryL '"Mother." he said, "I had almost forgotten what I came for. The Du hess of Morley. your old school-fellow, is here. She has but a few hours to stay, and wishes to see you." 'The Duchess of Morley!" repeated Lady Caryl hurriedly. I am delighted. But what shall I do with Gracial I am quite deter mined that she shall not conquer me. I will see what she has there." "Let me settle that for a time," he re joined. "Gracid, you trust me, do you not' Let me take charge of that." My heart gave a bound. How eould I ay "Yesl" How cou d Isay "Not" He turned to a little bbhi cabinet that stood near. "Give It to me, Gracia," he said. "I will lock it up here until we have time to go into the matter." It was a moment of terrible sspense to me. "Will you promise me," I asked, "that no hands shall touch It-aot even your own-and that no one shall see t'?" "I promise," he said gravely. "You will give it back to me uanopened and untouchedP' "Tes," he replied. I fastened my white spro more tightly round my little parcel, tied the ribbon strings into the closest knots, and then handed it to him. He placed the parcel i the buhl cabinet, locked it, and gave me the key. "That is to prove how I trust you," he said earnestly. "Do not remove that parcel, until you have made some arrangement with my mother. I trust you. Now, mother," he said, turamng to her ladyship, "come and see the Duchess She will be impatient; and to morrow night or to-morrow we can settle this unoleasant business;" and he kissed her. "You will not oppose my wish, Adrian. that Gracia leaves the house at once'" said Lady CaryL "My dearest mother, we will see to that to morrow, when everything shall be peaceably and happily arranged. Now male and look bright, or the Duchess wil think you re not happy." Lady aryl smiled. "You are a good ma to me, Adrian." she said gently; "you aever vex me." And thea-Heaven bless him !--he ame over to me. He took my hands in his,, not heeding his mother's presenee. "I am so sorry, Grade. There s some mis take, my dear. I will e it rectified." Her ladyship's eyes Gbshed with anger. "How long did you say the Duchsee would remaini" she asked coldly. "Some hours, mother," he replied. And then Lady Caryl, taking her son's arm, quitted the mum. Thq left mestanding there, with the key of the bohl eabinet ain my heads I remained motionless for a few moments, then went to my own rom, feeling bewildered, and as if I were in a dream. I could hear, after a time, the soad of the piano; and I knew that Lady Aditha was singing, and I felt that Sir Adrian was stand. lag by her side, as he would never again stand by mine. It seemed to me the very ony of fate. I was the Squire's daughter and heiress; this was my own house. If those below had known who I really was, evn the Duchess herself would have been pleased to me me, and would have congratulated me. But the seeelee was for Sir Adrian; and I would have serileed more for him. What pleasure would money or lads give am if I knew that was robbing him atof either. I would go on the morrow, but not to Mirs Keyoa'. I woald maklte my way la the world, pass at of their lives, ad some day in the lan years to eam I would ereep back just ear to Heroa's Nest and look at tbemall aga, umees my-lf-look at Sir Adran, rwith the hadsmma ees an the banie blue eys-my os, wher I shduld love ntil I died -look at his beentilfl young wife ad his Smother: the--- rut here I fead myself with the tera riln nladonmyfaee.

Ah. no. env love-I would rather be buried alive with the packet in my arms' I listened, with my heart throbbing pain fullr, on the grand staireale. where srt,i marble statue of the godile~s Flora with a basket of rses at her feet. There was no sound, except of music from the draw;in room, where Lady Aditha was stumini. The servants seemed to be all in their own part of the house; there was no one to see or to hear. The noonlhght streamed tlr,,uo. the windows of the hall, and lay in reat white patches on the staircase; it silvered the roues at the gsd dess's feet; andc by its light I crept slowly, quietly down stairs, thinking as I went of the night when I had followed the light of the Christmas -tar. I reached Lade Carv's h'ouldoir. There was no light, ex.pt that of tiie mnn. which fell silver white .cross the LuhI cablinet. With a quickly beat:ng heart I unlo~ked the door. There the pa; era lay, untouched. In sience I took them away. What should I do with the precious packet! It murt be de-troye,l; but it w s not an easy thing to do. Even if I tore the letters into shreds there wuld still be the remnants. There was no fire in any of the rooms to which I had access; I could not go to the kitchen. A sudden idea came to me. I would take the package just as it wa-, fasten a heavy stone to it, and Lug is into the depths oft the river Dale. The Idea delighted me. I wrapped a shawl round my head aid shoulder-. and. holding the packet tightly in my haud went out. As I passed the door of the large conservatory, I saw by the light of the moon the shadow of a man's figure; but he did not appear to see me as I hastened al ,ng. How fair the landscape was, the moon shin lug upon the turf and upon the leaves of the trees, which rustled gently in the wind! The calm brooding silence of night lay around me as I walked on leisurely. There was no need to hurry now. I had the packet in my hands and the river Dale was shluing in the dltance. At length I reached the bauk. and stood for some moments looking down at the water that would be the grave of may hopes, that would roll over the proofs of my birth and my for tune, sacrificed for the sake of my love. Presently I sat down upon the gram and tried to realise how Sir Adrian would look it he knew all. How his blue eyes would brighten, yet reproach me How his face would change from grave to glad, and back to grave again! Never shall 1 forget the beauty, the serenity of those few minutes I spent by the banks of the river in the moon lght, with the papers In my hand. Then I found a heavy stone, and I fastened it In my apron; the weight was quitesolctent to sink a much larger parcel than the one I held in my hands. I walked with it alowly to the water's edge, I kissed It Farewell to name, to fortune, to every hope In this world, for my love's sake-for my love's sake, fare welll And, as I railed my arm to l the parcel Into the stream, I cried, "For my love's askes" And then-shall 1 ever forget the horror ei that moment1-a hand seaed mine, and took the parcel from me. "What are you doing, Gracial" exclaimed a voice that chdled my heart. It was Sir Ad ria. I staggered back white, trembling, and fant. For some momenuts I could not recover myself; and then I broke into a wild passion of tears. "Oh, give It to me, Sir Adrian !" I Implored. "I pray you, for Heaven's sake, give It tome!" "I must know what it is, Gracia; I cannot let this go on. I have a suspicion that it is h-omething connected with yourself, and must satisfy myself." In my despair I sank upon my knees at his feet "I beseech you, give It to me: cried. "For my sake, or your own sake, for Heaven's sake I I shall go mad if you touch 1t" He looked at me. "I could refuse you nothing that was reason able; but in this Instance I must be master; I must know what this Is." When I heard his tone, when saw the az pression on his face, I knew all was over, and sank sobbing upon the grass "I am grieved to distress you, Grads." he continued-"I cannot hear the sight of your tears; but I most protect you against your self " By the light of the moon I saw him uantie the parcel and take out the great atone anad thbrow it away. I saw him take out thepapers and scan tlhem. I could hear the rustlaing o page after page-the certificates, my fathers letter, andl fiily the wilt. Then I became nnconselous. It seemed to me thatthtthe mooen and the stare fell to earth, that the river rosae and swept me away. When my eyes opened at last, I saw nlther moon nor river-only the face of the man I loved bending over mlne, with a look in his eyes to have won which I would have lad down my life. '"Gracls," be was svriang, "Gradees, my noble, generaous darling! Grad, open our eyes sa lok at me." Then I ast up gaaing at him with aimwoe dering eye s. "Gracia," he said asalonately, "what have you to tell me? I know everything. Too would have deprived yourself of name and fortune. Why-tell me why " And I answered him "For yur sake. I could not bear that your loss should be my gain." When the words had passed my lips, it seemed to me that the river ree again and carrled me away. When I came b·ack tolf, there was no river in eight, my love with the bonne blue eyes had disappeared, and I was lying In a room that was strange to me. The village doctor was standing by my bed, sad Mrs Paterson and Kate Fisher were also in the chamber. "That fis better," said the doctor; "now we shall do!" The son was shininog brightly into the oom. Whlther had Sir Adrian gonet Where were my pap-ors I tarttd up wrtt a wild cry whena I remembered them. "Huash!"' said the doctor '"You need not fearl I You have been unonscious for several howr. It was night when I came; it fs mora ing now. You must be quiet and resLt." I closed my eyes and tried to sleep; but it was impsehl:e. eMy senrs were once mvze as clear as eve'. I reumembered al that had happened by the river. Sir Adrian knew my secret now-knew the story that the papers told, sad why I wanted to destroy them. Now what would he dose.

"Neithler I nor any noe else can answer that questionu." replied Lady Car% . "I can answer it,"'' declared Sir Adrian; "I know who she is. She is the daughter sad heiress of the late Squire." "I do not believe t!'" cried her ladyship; but her face grew ghastly white. "Read those papers," said Sir Adrian, 'ti then you must believe." Slowly her ladysh.p read them t then laid them down. "Do you believe now, asked Sir AdriaL." "I must believe," she answered; bet the words were spoken in protest, even ags le her will. Then. after a few momste thousht, she added, "What a terrible mistaket I wonder the old Squire could rest In h s grave!
