How Her Wicked Scheme Came to
The Baron Sterne had married foi
love. His wife was young and very
beautiful, and he adored her. He was
rich. He owned a jrrand and stately
l t ay
castle in a most delightful part of Eng
land, and had besides a line town
house, where he and his lovely wife
could go and partake of city ga) eties
whenever it pleased them to do so.
The Baron came of a very old family.
Indeed, the first Baron Sterne
have come in with the Conquest, if the
traditions of the house were to be cred
ited. It was natural that the Baron
should desire an heir to represent the
honors of his house after him. Conse
quently when, after they had been
married over two years, his wife pre
sented him with a daughter instead of
a son, his disappointment was great.
But he dissembled it for the sake of his
dear wife, who. they told him, was in
danger of death at any moment. In
?Tite off all that could le done for her
by the most learned and skillful physi
cians in the country, the Baroness died
that evening. Not, however, without
clasping her poor little babe in her
loving arms and giving it once a
niuttier'g cares.se.-. The Baron was
almost beside himself with grief,
"rears were at first entertained for his
The child which had cost his beloved
Klfrida her life, he refused at first to

trusted servant ventured to remind him
gently that t lie dead Bsvoae had

before she died.
On hearing this the heart of a father

after its dead mother.
The nurse who held the child shud
dered at the name.
'Every otie knows that Friday is an
nnluckv dav."' she said. "and to call
the babe that will surely bring it bad
luck. Why couldn't he give it the.
whole name, or not name it for the
Baroness at all?"
But her grumbling made no differ
ence, of course. The little one at her
christening was called Friday. Now,
mm it happened, tiiis babe was not-the
Baron's child at all, but belonged to
the nurse, who was called Clever Janet
because she was H shrewd; and he
was as wieked as she was clever, for,
taking advantage of the great confu
sion and preoccupation of every body
at the time of the Baroness death. eke

The Lady Frida had every whim
gratified, and had she possessed the
sweet and gentle disposition of hei
supposed mother, would not have been
injured by it. But having the seeds in
her of evil, she grew up perverse, ob
stinate and willful. She had a fright
ful temper: she was selfish and ungrate
ful, haughty and overbearing to the
ergv ol cruelly- She was verv fond of
influence over her.
There was only one thing that Janet
would not humor Lady Frida in.
Frida had taken a fancy to Janet's sup
posed daughter Elfie, and wanted to
have her at tbe castle for a companion.
But Janet would never consent, and
that made Frida all the more deter
mined to have her own way.
So one day, when the Baron and she
i were out riding together, she skillfully
directed their course past s garden on
! the outskirts of the estate, in which a
! young girl was at work, whose grace
tad beauty were so remarkable, in
spite of her humble garb, that the
Baron stopped his horse, and spoke to
He made an excuse to ask for a glass
of water, and when the maiden brought
, it, and stood with modest, downcast
eves under his glance, he saw that she
was even lovelier than he had at first
supposed. The leaf of a white rose
could not have been more delicate than
her complexion. Her hands and feet
were small, and beautifully shaped,
and she had an air ol elegance and dis
tinction that puzzled him greatly.
Frida was delighted with the interest
he displayed.
"This is Klfie, paps," she said.
"Janet s child, vos. know. She
called after the tirst part ot poor
mamma's name, just as 1 am after the
last; ami Janet loves DM better than she
does her. Is not that odd?''
"It is, indeed," answered the Baron,
continuing to gaze with mitxanced eyes
at the beautitul countenance of the
"She won't even allow Elfie to come
to the castle for a few hours, papa,
; and I should so like to have her,'" pur
sued Frida, thinking that if she could
induce the Baron to interfere Janet
; would not dare persist in opposing her
! wishes.
The Baron promised to speak to
, Janet himself, and, as Frida had fore
seen, she did not dare object any long
er. Frida became very fond of El tie.
whose gentle temper and endearing
manners won the affection and admira
tion of all. Clever Janet strove to p
j pear cheerful as usual, but at heart she
was tortured with anxious terrors. To
I her, the maiden, Elfie, was the living
mnoro of the tokt RrnnPM. and she
UvccT in a constant dread lest the others
should remark this resemblance.
But time passed on, and no one
seemed to notice the resemblance
which so haunted and terrified the
guilty nurse. She succeeded at last in
persuading herself that her wicked se
cret, being locked so closely in her
own breast, could never get out.
About this time a young gentleman
came vi.siting to the castle. He was
called Egbert Sterne, and was the next
heir to the barony. Baron Sterne hav
ing no son. Secretly, it was the dear
BSl wish of the Baron that his daughter
and young Egbert should marry. He
had kept her seeluded from society
with thus end in view. He had told no
one of his wish: but Clever Janet had
gMSSed it, and was. of couse, more
anxious than the Baron himself that
Frida and the Baron's heir should fall
in love with each other.
She herself superintended Fridays
toilet the evening of Egbert Sterne's
rrh si; and the Baron's false daughter
had never looked so handsome before.
She HTM a verv sbowi l.e:uity, tall and
finely formed, with bright blue cy .
and a pad and white complexion that
burr? denied the beholder. Her dreei
eras rieh but simple, for Janet well
knew mat a young girl to be ctiarniing
Banal be girlish, and that therefore vel
vet and diamonds were quite unsuited
to her.
Young Egbert was a very fine look
ing, elegant and accomplished gentle
man. Knowing the Baron's desire,
and regarding him highly, hesidee not
having already bestowed his affections
on any lady, he eras prepared to like
the Lady Frida. When he li r-t beheld
her, so handsome, stately and smiling,
be showed so plainly that he
admired her that the Baron was
it lighted, and at once ma le Clever
Janet a handsome present, and told
tier how pleased he was. and that he
should never forget her devotion to his
What would have been the poor
Baron'- horror had he known that the
Lady Friday was not his child at all,
but Janet's! Frida, on her part,
seemed well pleased with young Eg
Iwrt, but did not displav that extraor
dinary admiration of him which the
circu mstances appeared to warrant.
"However." thought (.'lever Janet.
"she bas never seen any one eta, and
be so handsome she can not help
loving him."
The young pair were much together,
and seemed indeed in a fair way to
make a match of it, when Frida took
it into her willful head that she must
have Elfie's assistance in entertaining
her guest.
Janet had contrived, so far, to keep
her apposed daughter in a portion of
the castle where she and young Egbert
would not be likely to meet, for she,
with her wits sharpened by guilt, sus
pected that the humbleness of Elfie's
seeming station would only make her
delicate loveliness appear the more
wonderful, and that Frida's glowing
beauty, brought in contrast with it.
would seem coarse and common. She
now resolved to remove her altogether
from the castle, and accordingly sent
her back to her husband's cottage, and
w rote him word to keep her there.
Lady Frida did not seem so angry
as Janet expected when she heard of it.
On the contrary, she turned her head
forsaken her. She was in such terror
of the injured Baron that she set oft' st

her husband got upon the same horse

she sent Bert rand to bring them back.

"He may be quite, for all me,"
scornfully retorted Frida. "Bertrand
is taller, stronger, handsomer, and
more to mv mind in everv war."
Janet heard her in horror and dis
may. "Bertrand must disappear," she said
to herself; and that very afternoon she
sent for her husband, and had a long
talk with him. She found him the
more compliant to her wishes because
he knew that if he had stayed at home
end watched the house, instead of
going carousing with evil companions,
as he had done, matters might not have
come to such a desperate pass.
The next day: accordingly, he in
vited Bertrand to go hunting with him,
r rj
and led him a long war into s deep
and terrible forest, where the two.
alighting from their hordes, ate lunch
together. But into the wine which
Bertrand drank the other had con
trived to put a strong sleeping potion,
so that as soon almost as he drank it
the young man lay back upon the turf
and fell sound asleep, and his com
panion galloped ott. taking Bertrand's
nana with him. and turned him loose a
long wa from his master.
A no one had seen them go awav to-
getter, no one accused him when Ber
trand did come back. But Frida. as
soon as she heard that Bertrand could
not be found. HsSOected lexer Janet of
having contrived to send him awav
halt s
dozen with intelligent faces and bust
pens. Each one ha.s a cheap copy of
the Bible, which she reads carefully
and occasionally clips out a verse and
pastes it at tbe top of a long sheet of
white paj)er. The others then cut out
the same verse from their Bibles and
dinose of it in the same manner. With
this before them they begin to discuss
it in turn. One of these commentators
is an excellent tireek and Hebrew
cbolar. Another is profoundly learned
in curreut Bible criticism, while still
another has gone through with care
and has at her tingeiV ends all the
great commentaries of Henry, Scott,
Dr. Adam Clark and others. After
each verse has been thoroughly dis
cussed each woman writes under
it what she has to say and tbe
sheets are then passed ta s secretary.
This secretary is a recent graduate
from Vassar. " She cuts out this much-talked-of
verse from still another Bible,
puts it at the top of a large sheet of
paper and then appends under it the
notes of all the learned lady commen
tators. When asked what was the ob
ject of this revision, one of the ladies,
who Inspire! and carries on this tre
mendous labor, explained that they
were doing what might be called a
a feminine revision of the Scriptures.
We find." she said, "in going over
the Old and New Testaments, that
about one-tenth of the Bible touch
in one way or another, upon women.
