nesa that instantly satisfied her. .
"I should think it an act of insolenoe
to flatter you," he said. " If yon knew

Bomayne smiled. "It was not what
I said," he answered. ' "I am subject to
attaoks to sudden attacks of illness.: I
am sorry I alarmed Mr. Penrose by let

Lord Loring hurried away to his
dressing-room. " I won't be more than
ten minutes," he said, and left Bomayne
and Stella together.
She was attired with her customary
love of simplicity. White lace was the
only ornament on her dress of delicate
silvery gray. Her magnificent hair was
left to plead its own merits, without
ornament of any sort. Even the brooch
which fastened her lace pelerine was of
plain gold only. Conscious that she
was showing her beauty to the greatest
advantage in the eyes of a man of taste,
she betrayed a little of the embarrai
ment which Bomayne had already no
ticed at the momen when she gavA
him her hand. They were alone ; and
it was the first time she had seen him
in evening dress.
It may be that women have no posi
tive appreciation of what is beautiful
in form and color, or it may be that
they have no opinions of their own
when the laws of fashion have spoken,
This at least is certain, that not one
of them in a thousand seos anything
objectionable in the gloomy and hideous
evening costume of a gentleman in the
nineteenth century. A handsome man
is, to their eyes, more seductive than
ever in the contemptible black coat and
the stiff white cravat which he wears in
common with the servant who waits on
him at table. After a stolen glance at
Bomayne, Stella lost all confidence in
herself she began turning over the
photographs on the table.
The momentary silence whioh fol
lowed their first greeting became in
tolerable to her. Rather than let it
continue, she impulsively confessed the
uppermost idea in her mind when she
entered the room.
' I thought I heard my name when I
came in, bLo said. " Were you and
Lord Loring speaking of me?'
Bomayne owned without hesitation
that they had been speuk iug of her.
She smiled, and turned over another
photograph. But when did sun-pio-tures
ever act as a restraint on a woman's
curiosity ? The words passed her lips in
spite of her. " I suppose I muan't ask
what you were saying V
It was impossible to answer this
plainly without entering into explana
tions from whioh Bomayne shrauk. 30
She tnrned over another photograph.
"I understand," she said. "Yon
were talking of my faults." She paused,
and stole ano' her look at him. "I will
try to correct my faults if yon will tell
me what they are."
Bomayne felt that he had no alterna
tive but to tell the truth under certain
reserves. "Indoed you are wrong," he
said. " We were talking of the influ
ence of a tone, or a look, on a sensitive
"The influence on me T she asked,
"no. ine in n nonce wmcn you
might exercise on another person."
She knew perfectly well that he was
speaking of himself. But she was de
termined to feel the pleasure of making
him own it.
" If I have any such influence as von
describe," she began, " I hope it is for
" Certainly for good."
" You speak positivey, Mr. Romarne.
Almost as positively only that can
scarcely be as if yon were speaking
from experience."
He might still have evaded a direct
reply, if she had been content with
merely saying this, Bnt she looked at
him while she spoke. He answered the
"Shall I oarn that yon are rightr be
said. " I was thinking of my own ex
perienoe yesterday."
She returns to the photographs. " It
sounds impossible," she rejoined, sofilr.
There was a wnse. Was it anything
I aid?" she asked.
"So. It was only when ynn looked
at me. But for that look I don't think
I should have been here to-day."

if the gentlefolks up?y rs had enjoyed
their dinner. So far.Uhe report was,
on the whole, favorable But the con
versation was doscribetfag occasionally
flagging. The burden of the talk had
been mainly borne by my lord and my
lady, Mr. Bomayne and Miss Eyreoourt
oontnbuting bnt little to the social en
joyment of the evening; . Receiving this
information without much appearance
of interest, the housnkeeper put another
question, to which, jndging by her man
ner, she attached a certain importance.
She wished to know if the oyster-ome
lette, accompanying the cheese, had
been received as a welcome dish, and
treated with a just recognition of its
merits. The answer to this was decid
edly in the negtuaMr Bomayne
and Miss. Eyreconrt had declined to
taste it. My lord had tried it, and had
left it on his plate. My lady alone had
roally eaton her share of the misplaced
dish. Having stated this apparently
trivial circumstance, the head servant
was surprised by tlie effect which it pro
duced on the housekeeper. She leaned
back in her chair and closed her eyes,
with an appearance of unutterable en
joyment. That nigEt there was one
supremely happy woman in London ;
and her name was Hiss Notman.
Ascending from the housekeeper's
room to the drawing room, it is to be
further reported that music was tried,
as a means of getting through the time
in the absence of general conversation.
Lady Loring sat down at the piano
and played as admirably as usual. At
the other end of the room Bomayne and
Stella sat together, listening to the
music Lord Loring, walking back
ward a,nd f'.riiaralawti-. restlessness
whioh teas lur from being characteristic
of him in his after-dinner hours, was
stopped when he reached the neighbor
hood of the piano by a private signal
from his wife.
Wi at are yon walking about for?"
Lady Loring asked in a whisper, with
out interrupting her musical perform
"I m not quite easy, -my aear.
"Turn over the music. Indiges
'Good heavens, Adelaide, what
"Well, what is it, than?"
Lord Loring looked toward Stella
and her companion,
They don't seem to get on together
as well as I had hoped, he said.
"I should think not when you are
walkintr about and disturbing them I
Sit down there behind me.
" What am I to do?
" Am I not reaving? Listen to me."
" My dear, I don't Understand mod
ern German music
" Then read the evening paper,
The evening paper had its attractions.
Lord Loring took his wife s advice.
Left entirely by themselves, at the
other end of the room, Bomayne and
Stella justified Lady Loring's belief in
the result of reducing her husband to
state of repose. Stella ventured to
ipeak first, in a discreet undertone.
" Do you pass most 01 yonr evenings
alone, Mr. Bomayne?
Not quite alone. 1 nave tne com
pany of my books."
'Are your books tne companion that
yon like bjst?"
' I have been true to those compan
ions. Jliss n.yrecouri., ii. many years,
If the doctors are to be believed, my
books have not treated me vory well in

health, and have made n 1 n afraid,

about to say more, and f.1 n . checked
the impulse. " Why am I tnlking of

He put the question an assumed
gayetv. Stella made no effort, on her
side, to answer him in the same tone.
" I almost wish I really had some in
fluence over you," she said, gravely and
I should try to induce you to shut
np your books, and choose some living
companion who might restore you to
your happier self."
"It is already done, said Koroavne :

herself. The time would come when
she would repent having married me."
Stella rose. Her eyes rested on him
with a look of gentle remonstrance.
"I think you scarcely do women jus
tice," she said, softlv. " Perhaps some
day a woman may induce you to change
your opinion." She crossed the room
to the piano. " Yon must be tired of
playing, Adelaide," she said, putting her
hand caressingly on Lady Loring's

She sighed and turned away. " Not

Bomayne took his leave rather hur

and eager to get away. Lord Loring
accompanied his guest to the door.
" You look sad and care-worn," he
said. " Do you regret having left your
books to pass an evening with us?"
Bomayne looked up absently, and
answered: " I don't know yet."

Loring found the drawing-room empty

Lady Loring looked uneasy.
" I promised my husliand to keep it

" It Is nothing degrading, Adelaide ;
I am sure of that."
"And vou are right, my dear. I can
understand that he has surprised and

earnestly at Stella. "They say, she
went on, " the love that lasts longest ia

" Yes, if I am convinced that it ought

On the memorable Monday when the
picture-gallery was opened to the pub

making his way, without ceremony,
through the orowd in the picture-gallery.
Father Benwell returned to the li

himself further about Mrs. Eyreoourt

Not yet. I thought I would get on

" I have just come from the gallery,'
Lord Loring continued. "And here

of some of the visitors. You know my

Father Benwell rang the bell when
Lord Loring had left him.
" Do tbe ladies drive out to-day at
their usual hour? he inquired, when
the servant appeared. The man an
swered in the affirmative. The carriage
was ordered for three o'clock.
At half-past two Father Benwell slip
ped quietly into the gallery. He posted
himself midway between the library-
door and the grand entrance, on the
watch, not for the civilizing influences
of art, but for the appearance of LaJy
Loring and Stella. He was still of
opinion that Stella's ' frivolous " mother
might be turned into a source of valu
able information on the source of her
danghter's earlier life. The first step
toward attaining this object was to dis
cover Mrs. Eyrccourt's present address.
Stella would certainly know it, and
Father Benwell felt a just confidence
in his capacity to make the young hvly
serviceable, in this respect, to the pe
cuniary interests of the church.
After an interval of a quarter of an
hour, Lady Loring and Stella entered
the gallery by the library-door. Father
Benwell at once advanced to pay his

frained from making any attempt to
lead the conversation to the topic that

made their remarks on the pretentions
to beauty and to taste in dress among

the resignation of a modest yonng man.

A Bom antic Caheer. The mere
narrative of Garibaldi's life reads like a
medieval legend or a tale of heroic
times. He is at once the Ulvses and
tne Actwies of the Itnlian nationl epic.
Long before his name had been heard in
Europe, his exploits, both by sea and
land, had made it a word of power in
the new world. Hiving been involved
m revolutionary intrigues, he quitted
Europe in 1836 for South America, only
to return after twelve years' oxile. the
story of which with its stirring adven
tures both of battle and peaceful enter

ots, bv the promise soon to be blighted,
ofPioNono's accession as the liberal
pope." But though he soon lonnrt tht
hiJ hopes In thnt'dlrection were td ha
disappointed, Garibaldi did not return
in vain. His share in the defennn nf
Rome against the troops of the French
republic under Gen. Oudiuot and bis
victory over the Neapolitons in the
campaign of Valletri served to show his
countrymen that they would not want a
leader ready to go all lengths when the
time came.
Tbe time did not come for another ten
years, and the inti rvening period was
one of sorrow and humiliation for Uar-
baldi. After tbe disastrous Roman
campsign, ending with the occupation
of Rome by the French troops, and tbe
overthrow of Mnzzini's triumvirate.
Garibaldi was hunted from place to
ulace: two of his devoted friends were
taken by tbe Austrian troops and shot
without any form 01 trial : bis heroic
wife, Anila, tbe companion of all bis ad
ventures and perils succumbed to the
exposure and privation of his flight, and
the general himself only escaped from
19 more implacable loes to be arrested
by Sardinian troops and carried to Gen-
nere La Marmora, who held tbe

peace with Austria, and ttie bopes of
Italy seemed extinguished for tbe :110m
ent. Garibaldi onoe more crossed the At
lantic and settled in New York as a tal
low chandler. He returned to Europe
in 1855, and in 1859 the war between
France and Austria brought him again
into the field. Here we approach the
better known, or, at least the better re I
membered parts of Garibaldi's eventful
career. All the world recollects the
exploits of the Chasseurs des Alpes,
whom Garibaldi organized for mountain
warfare, and led with consummate dar
ing along tbe sub-alpine ranges nod to
the very summit of tbe Sielvio Paas be
fore tbe sudden peace of Villafranca put
an end lor tne moment to tne rising
hopes of Italian patriots and statesmen.

campaign ol the following year, which
