Her keen eyes shone with a hard glitter as she thought that her son was probably saved from com mitting some dangerous folly, and launched afresh on a career which promised honor and promotion. In truth, Mrs. Seville's hopes and ambi Hons were centered on her second son. Her eldest was an apathetic, well-bred, briefless barrister, of dilettante tastes, given to writing elegantly-expressed papers In the more exalted periodicals on obscure passages In Shakespeare, and latterly In Browning, on the deri vation of obsolete words, and other such topics, in which ordinary mortals took not the slightest interest Mrs. Saville was'the only child and sole heiress of an exceedingly wealthy Sheffield manufacturer. She had mar ried the accomplished, amiable, distinguished-looking younger brother of the Earl of Everton, an impecunious peer whose sole means of existence was de rived from the rent of the family man sion and domains. Mrs. Saville was an extremely ambltlouns woman; she had a keen desire for personal distinc tlon, and In her own mind had re solved that as her eldest son must In the order of things succeed his uncle and become Earl of Everton, so Hugh must marry a woman of rank and for tune, and thus she would be free to give the bulk of her belongings to support the title which would devolve upon her eldest son. He was a stead" Irreproachable young man, but her heart, her pride, centered In her Ben jamin. Mrs. Saville's love was a somewhat onerous obligation; she had a very tough, inexorable will, and a profound belief that she could manage every one's affairs considerably better than they could themselves a doctrine In which her younger 6on rarely agreed. Hi3 mother's greed for power was greatly developed by her early widow hood, though the deceased Honorable her husband was a peace-loving soul who rarely contradicted her. Such was the condition of things at the begin ning of this narrative. Receiving no reply to her telegram, Mrs. Saville sat up late on the follow ing Wednesday, hoping her son might arrive, and retired to rest weary with unfulfilled expectation. When her maid brought her early cup of tea, the following morning, she announced that "Mr. Hugh arrived about half an hour ago, and has gone to his room." Whereupon Mrs. Saville ordered her breakfast to be brought to her In her own apartment, that she might not de lay her son's refreshment, and pre pared leisurely to meet him In her morning-room. She was already there to greet him when he came up-statrs. "Well, my dear Hugh! I am glad to see you. My best congratulations. Have yon read the Secretary's letter? I told Atkins to give It to you." "Yes, he did," said Hugh, shortly; then he kissed his mother's brow and stood looking at her with a troubled expression. He was a fair, sunburnt man of per haps six or seven-and-twenty, ratber above middle height, broad-shouldered, and seeming shorter than he really was. His features were good, and a pair of large handsome brown eyes lighted up his face, which was square and strong; his hair and thick mous taches were light brown, with a red dish tinge. "Why, Hugh, you are looking 111 and worn. Tou do not seem like yourself. Why did you not arrive last night?" "I came as quickly as I could; tbe trains at this season are lnconvenl cnt," he returned, still In an absent tone. He had a pleasant, deep-chested voice, and, though he had never given much time to Its cultivation, could sing a good second. "If you had started on Monday night after you had my telegram, you might have been here yesterday." "I could not, mother." And he be gan to pace the room In quarter-deck gtyl. "Why?" persisted Mrs. Saville, with vague uneasiness. "Because I had a rjither particular engagement on Tuesday morning." "What do you mean?" "I had arranged to be married on Tuesday morning, and I could not dis appoint the parson and the consul, to say nothing of my fiancee." he return ed with a grim smile, and pausing in his walk opposite his mother. "Married!" she repeated, growing white and grasping the arms of her chair. "Hugh, this is a supld, vulgar jest" , . "It Is not, mother. I am married as fast as church and state can bind me. If I look haggard and seedy you need not wonder, for it isn't pleas to leave your bride almost at the church door. I can tell you." -Madman!" she hissed through her set teeth, while ner keen black eyes flashed with fury. "To what adventur ess have you fallen a victim?" "Hush." he said, with some dig nltr "you must not speak disrespect fully of my wife. To-morrow or next flayyou will see full particular. In the aWWBDafl-" What!" she almost TsrrAv1.Vrl a,u grace to the world?" Jny M "e I you know at once, he continued, not heeding her nterruptlon. -My wife was Mlsi Hil on. daughter of the late Captain Hil iL!',Id cava,r-vmn. ot Rood fam y. 1 believe; but that I don't care a rap about" "I expected th!s,- said Mrs. Saville n a low, concentrated tone, and rising In her wrath. ' Some Inner voice told me evil would come of your long, un accountable stay in that vile place. Now leave me. Never let me set eyes upon you asaiu. Tou have blasted my hopes, you have destroyed my affection tor you, you cease to be my son." "Stop!" cried Hugh, in such a tone of command that his mother obeyed. "You must and shall hear me. Pray sit down. I have a good deal to say.' He resumed his walk for a moment, while he strove to collect himself. Mrs. Saville was silent watching hlra with uel, glittering eyes. "You have a right to be angry." Hugh began, throwing himself into a chair near his mother's. "You have been a good mother to me, and you deserve that I should have consulted you but knowing that you would do your best to forbid or prevent the mar riage, even to the length of writing cruelly to Kate, I determined to say nothing till the deed was accomplish ed. Now hear me. I first met the Hil tons in Naples nearly two years ago, when I was with the Mediterraneon squadron. My uncle Everton was there, and I had leave now and again while we lay off Sicily: You know I never bother about women, mother; but before I knew Kate Hilton a week, I was fathoms deep. I don't know whether other people think her beauti ful or not to me she is the best and loveliest " Mrs. Saville made a motion of the hands expressive of dis gust and repulsion, while a contemp tuous smile curled her thin lips. "There, I will not trouble you with de tails," continued Hugh, grimly. "She sang well, like a prima donna, and she used to let me sing with her, but the more I showed her well, the feel ings I could not repress, the colder and more distant she grew. She drove me half mad. Then I was ashore, as you know, and went off wandering abroad, hoping to meet her, as I did. Still she kept me at arms'-length, but some thing told me that she wasn't as In different as she seemed." "No doubt!" ejaculated Mrs. Saville. "About six weeks ago, I went to Nice, and found old Hilton very ill so bad that I could scarce get speech of Kate. They were lodging in the outskirts of the town. Then he died very suddenly at the last, and Kate, unnerved with watching and grief for the old man, who, though by no means a good father, was never actively un kind, broke down and clung to me. She was friendless, penniless, helpless. I took the command and insisted on her marrying me." "Have you done yet?" asked his mother, harshly. "Nearly. Have a little patience. As a woman I ask you what opinion you would have of a man who could have deserted the girl he loved with all his heart and soul in such desolation? Could I have helped her, given her money, protection, anything, save as a husband? She was not her usual proud self, or she would have seen through the thin excuses with which 1 veiled your silence. Now, mother, be tesder, womanly ay, and reasonable. Make up your mind to the inevitable. Kr.te is my wife. See her before you condemn me, before you banish me. Give her the protection I cannot stay to give. I have left her with the kind old Frenchwoman in whose house her father died. I dared not endanger my career, my reputation, by losing an hour: so, for her sake as well as my own, I tore myself away. I don't think I ever asked you a favor; now 1 pray you, if you ever loved me, take my wife to your heart; let her live near you; give her a chance of win nlng your good opinion, your- " A scornful laugh interrupted him. "Do you imagine I am as weak a fool as my son? such an abject weakling? No, I shall have nothing to do with you or your wife. Go; I shall not see you again. You have never asked me a favor? Have I not paid your debts?" "Yes, at Rawson's request not mine, nor should I have Incurred them had my allowance been measured by the needs and habits with which I had been brought up. Did you ever love my father, that you are so hardened against the first love of your son's lifer "I had a proper affection for my husband, but I should never have for gotten myself for any man. I repeat it, you cease to be my son from this hour. You shall have the quarter's al lowance now due to you, but after this not a penny more. See how you will get on with the beggarly pittance you derive from your father. To-morrow I shall see Rawson about altering my will. What wife will compensate you for a life of poverty and obscurity?" "Poor we may be, but obscure, if 1 live, we shall not be," said Hugh, ris ing, and looking steadily at his moth er, while he spoke very calmly. "I may deserve some censure for not In forming you of my plans, but this treatment I do not deserve. And yet I believe you have a heart, though so calked and coated with worldllness that Its natural Impulses are hopeless ly deadened, your natural good sense blinded to the relative value of things. What would the wealth of a kingdom be to me, if I knew the woman I love was groping her way painfully, with a bruised spirit and bleeding feet through the rugged ways of life with out a hand to help her? No, mother, vonr son Is man enough to risk every thing rather than that 1 wHl obey you and go. Good by. God be with you. I will never see your face again until you ask me and my wife to visit yon." "Then It is farewell forever." said Mrs. Seville, sternly. "Take my thanks for this repayment of all the cart and thought and affection I have lavished on you." Hugh stood half minute gating at her, then, turning sharply, left the room without another word. Mrs. Sa ville had risen to utter her last sen tence, and now walked to the fireplace to ring sharply. "Tell one of the menloberAdy In ten minutes. I want to send a note to Mr. Rawson. It requires an answer." she said to the butler. "And, Atkins, I shall not want you any more to-day; you had better assist Mr. Hugh. He is pretted for time. I wish everything belonging to him in this house to be packed and removed by to-morrow evening at the furthest You under stand me," said his mistress, sternly; "everything must be removed. And, Atkins, telegraph to Mr. Saville. I think he has returned to his cham bers: he was to be away only a week. Say I want him to come here to lunch eon." The man, looking stupefied, quit ted the presence of his Imperious mis tress, who sat down to write with a steady hand and a curious scornful smile on her Hps. Mrs. Saville's son did not come to luncheon, and Mr. Rawson's partner rote his regrets that the he.d of the firm had left the uffl before Mrs. Sa vllle's note had arrived, and they did not know when -he would return, but that the writer would wait on Mrs. Saville at once if she wished, and vould telegraph. So the obdurate mother's intention of destroying her will at once was for the moment frustrated. She therefor oidered the carriage, and, after paying a round of visits, took a long drive, reaching home Just In time to see At kins Inspecting a pile of luggage being placed on a cab. He hustled the men who were assisting out of his lady's way, saying officiously, as he did so, "We have nearly cleared away every thing. Just one or two boxes are left for to-morrow. I did not like to take them so lale Into a private house, and it's a goodish step to Porchester Ter race." "Do what you like," said Mrs. Ra vllle, coldly; "do not trouble me. And she passed through the hall, thinking, angrily, "So that weak-mind ed man Rawson is giving that mlsera ble, ungrateful dupe, my son, shelter and encouragement! I will call" him to account for this." It was a wretched evening. Mrs. Saville was to dine with a distinguish ed dowager, and, with Spartan cour age, arrayed herself in her best and went forth to smile and utter bland nothings about her dear boy's haste to get off In good time, about his good fortune in being appointed to the flag ship, and many more things about her mingled regret and satisfaction polite Inventions with which she vainly hoped to throw dust in the world's shrewd eyes. Next day detection took the wings of the morning and came flying in the shame of Lady Olivia Lumley, news papers in hand. Breathless, excited, she arrived before mid day, a mark of unauthorized familiarity. "Oh, my dear Mrs. Saville, my dear Elizabeth, have you aeen what is in the newspapers? I came oft at once. could not bear that any one should break it to you but myself." And she held out the paper doubled down at the announcement among tbe mar riages. "No, I have not," cried Mrs. Saville, savagely, snatching the papei, crush ing it, and throwing It from her, "but I heard all about everything yester day morning. I have disowned and banished my son. I will never see him again. But if you have come here to gloat over my rage and distress, you will be disappointed. I have merely cut off an offending member. He Is not worth regretting. If you ever dare to mention the subject again, I shall de cline to hold any communication with you or to give a reason for cutting you. The world can fill up the blanks.' (To be continued.)
