So high was her opinion of him that she deigned to call periodically on his daughters, and Borne years be fore, when she was In the hahlt nf giving a large ball every season, sent them Invitations, which were general ly declined. Hugh Saville had been at school with the solicitor's only son, who was also in the navy, and, when the young fellow evinced a tendency to drink, stood by him and helped him at the turnlng-nolnt whnm. hut tnr friendly help, he might have taken the downward road. Mrs. Saville was too clever a woman to be a snob, though her love of powpr and distinction made her nvnr.vninn the effect of rank and title upon hnr fellow-creatures. She was quite w!l ling that her sonB should be on famll lar terms with Mr. Rawson's famllv; they were perfectly safe In the society of his quiet, unpretending daughter, while the sincere regard entertained by Mr. Rawson for the family of his distinguished client, whose d3bts, dlffl cultles, and Involvements made many ttepB In the ladder by which his fath er and himself had cllmlied to fortune, lent something of a feudal character to the tie existing between them. To Mrs. Saville the greatest power on earth was money; but she was no miser. She could be lavishly gener ous at times, especially to any one who had served or gratified her own precious self. She could throw alms, too, to the needy, as you would a bone to starving curs; but to her the poor were not exactly men or brothers. Yet, as her son said, she was not without heart, only lifelong undisputed com mand and unchecked prosperity had hardened it; no one could do much for her, or give her anything she had riot already, and amid the splendid sun shine of her existence one small cloud, "no bigger than a man's hand," cast a deep shadow against which her In ner heart rebelled. She was conscious that no one loved her, except, Indeed, her son Hugh. This lt was that made her so hard; she did not realize that her manner, her haughty aspect, re pelled such sweet free-will offerings as love and tenderness. "My dear madam," said Mr. Rnw son when she paused in her reproach es, "I can quite understand your dis pleasure, but surfer me to suggest that I have a right to receive whom I like In my own house. I do not defend your sons imprudence; duc, tnougn you renounce him, surely you would not wish to deprive the poor young fellow of friends as well as kindred? To persecute him Is revenge, and to that I will be no party." "I do not understand these nice dis tinctions," cried Mrs. Saville, "but I think your giving shelter to to that disobedient boy Is Inconsistent with loyalty to me." "Not In my opinion. Your son is not the first young man who has left fath er and mother to cleave unto his wife. He has been singularly imprudent; still " "Imprudent ! A dupe! a fool! an un grateful Idiot! Can't you see tne game of the adventuress all through?" I must say, such a construction might be put on the disastrous story. If you are right, however," continued Mr. Rawson, "your son is more sinnea against than sinning. If Mr. Hugn Seville's wife is the sort of a woman you Imagine, she will hardly live for year and more away irora ner uur band, and within reacn or me no with which her father used to asso ciate, without getting Into a scrape of some kind. I propose to have her carefully watched. It she gives us Just reason for action, let her be punished and your son saved from her clutches. If she proved a good woman and true, why. you must relax something of your severity." . . ,,, I can safely promise wnai jou wi.i, if Rhe proves good and true. How do you propose to find out?" The lady remains near Nice, In the same rooms occupied by her father. V!r.

I shall never be the same to Hugh, hut should prefer punishing the wom an. "It is but natural," remarked Raw son. "Remember. Mr. Rawson. I must have my will to-morrow; I am deter mined to destroy it. It strikes me that your coming without it to-day looks very like playing Into Hugh's hands." "You do us both injustice. I am r luctant you should change it, but your son never mentioned the subject to me. Indeed, he is too breathlessly busy, and a good deal harassed by bis by the lady's anxiety to come out as a public singer, for which she was trained. He " "Anything but that! Imagine the name of Mrs. Hugh Saville In huge let ters at the top of a play bill! It would be monstrous!" "Oh, she would come out as Sig flora somebody. I would not oppose it if I were you. But I think your son has forbidden the plan." "Why should I take any further trouble?" said Mrs. Saville, throwing herself back In her chair. "Let things go." "Very well." Mr. Rawson rose to take leave. "Lord Everton arrived yesterday. He makes some short stay in town, but no doubt he will call on you." Then I shall not see him. I shall get away, I hope next week; I cannot stay in town; yet I dread the coun try. Do not forget to send my will this afternoon by a special messen ger." "I shall be sure to do so." "And come the day after to-morrow to take my Instructions for a new one. I don't wish to die intestate." "My dear Mrs. Saville. what a comic Idea!" "If you knew how I felt you would not think it an unnatural one." A few weeks 'quiet In the country will set you up." "The country without companion ship will not be cheerful; yet I want to get away from every one. At In glefleld, however, I have my gardens." "A delightful resource," said Raw- son, absently. His attention had begun to wander, and he hastened to make his adleux. A conspiracy of small things, how ever, seemed to have been formed against the execution of Mrs. Savllle's plans. Rawson faithfully fulfilled his prom ise, and sent her will, which that very night she tore up with vicious energy and burned in the empty grate of her ure8sing-room, but the truBty adviser was immensely engaged for the next fortnight, and when be offered the ser vices of his partner they were invari ably declined. Then, by some mis take, there had been a delay In begin ning certain repairs and decorations at Inglefleld, and when she drove down to Inspect them she found the smell of paint so overpowering that she at once postponed her removal for at least ten days. Finally she sent for her doctor and commanded him to pre scribe for the bad feverish cold she declared she had caught, and abovs all to order absolute quiet All this time her eldest son was absent. He was spending a delightful and profita ble few days, which stretched into a fortnight, with a learned antiquarian who had a place In Lincolnshire, from where they enjoyed themselves exam ining the fine old churches to be found In that shire, taking rubbings of brass es, and spending happy mornings In deciphering half-effaced Inscriptions. These were bitter days to tne proud, selfish woman, who felt that the love which had kept her heart from freez ing, her nature from growing quite stony, had been snatched from her by a stranger, a mere adventuress, who most likely saw in Hugh only a useful husband, whose money and po sition would make life luxurious and secure. For the sake of this stranger, the son she loved so well In her own silent, exacting way had cast aside all sense of duty, all affection, all regard for rightful authority; and to her It seemed a moral earthquake. The feverish cold she feigned at first became really an attack- of low fever, and her medical attendant grew anxi ous that she should have change of air. Ill or well, she never ceased to in sist on having her new will complet ed and brought to her for execution. In vain Mr. Rawson begged for her to await the return of her eldest son and consult him first Mrs. Saville reject ed the suggestion with scorn. "Richard knows nothing about busi ness. He has preposterous unworldly notions. I have no respect whatever for his opinion; so Just bring me my will, without further maneuvering.. I l.now you are working for that un grateful, worthless son of mine; but it Is of no use. If you refuse to .'do my bidding I can find plenty who wilL" . -Terr true, Mrs. Saville; bat I e not deny that I am reluctant to my young friend cut off without even s shilling. t)o not be In a hurry. You cannot tell what time may bring rortn. "No. Mr. Rawson, I will not wait Death may come at any moment and I could not rest In my grave if I thought that designing minx was re velling In the enjoyment ot my mon ,rWell. then. I will do yon bidding. The day after to-morrow I will send my head clerk with the will. Wou can get one of your own people for a sec ond witness." "Then I shall leave town on Thurs day. Until I have signed, sealed, and delivered lt Into your bands, I shall not quit this house. Can I trust it to you. Mr. Rawson T "My dear madam, do you take me for a felon?" Mrs. Saville smiled a swift, bright smile, such as at rare very rare in- tervals lit up her grave face. well, i shall leave U In your hands." There was a short pause, and she resumed: "Among all this worry, I suppose you have not had time to find me a lady companion? "Yes, I have made some inquiries, and find lt is no easy matter. Tbt fact is, I enlisted my eldest daughter In your service. She is a sensible, thoughtful young woman, and very anxious to select the right article. She was speaking to me only this morn ing, and was rather depressed about It There are shoals ot women seeking such an appointment but very few that are suitable." "One that did not suit would be worse than none." "Exactly. Now, my daughter sug gested something that might suit It you do not mind waiting a week." "I fear, Mr. Rawson, I shall have to wait considerably longer." "Well, the lady I was going to men tlon is the niece of our rector down In Wales, my native place. He has been dead many years, but this girl lived on with his widow, who died s few months ago. She is an orphan, very slenderly provided for, and Is coming to stay with my girls for a few weeks. She is a gentlewoman, and well educated. I have not seen her since she was very young, so I will take a look at her before I say any more. If I think lt worth while trou bling you, she might call, and you coum rorm your own judgment or take her on trial for a . couple of months. "manic you, Mr. Kawson. I am very much obliged- I should like to see her; for I cannot have a fright or a dowdy before my eyes every day, When do you expect this girl?" "I am not quite sure. Soon, certain ly." "I should like to see her before I leave." "I will ask my daughter to write this evening and ask her to come a little sooner." "Yes, pray do. If she Is at all rea sonable and Intelligent, she may be of great use to me. Imagine, Mr. Raw- son, Lady Olivia proposing to give me her 'dear Sophia' for six months, Ifi be my daughter and to cheer me upl Why, the girl is as great an idiot as her mother!" "Indeed! The offer was well meant." "I hate well-meaning people." Mr. Rawson laughed. "I suppose I may tell you I had a few lines from Mr. Hugh " he began, when be was swiftly silenced by an Imperative, "No, you may not. I will not allow that name to be mentioned before me, un less, Indeed, we can succeed In break ing this unfortunate 'marriage." Mr. Rawson, looking very grave, bent his head. "By the way, what is the name of the lady you mentioned?" "Oh! Miss Desmond." "I will see her," said Mrs. Saville, with decision. "I can tell at a glance whether she will do or not" "Then I shall wish you a very good morning, and my daughter will let you know when Miss Desmond can wait upon you." "Mrs. Saville thanked him again, and bade him a gracious good-by. (To be continued.) . Bobbr's Excuse. They had evaporated peaches for dessert and Bobby ate the lion's share.

A wide-spreading oak which experts have declared must have been grow ing at the time of the discovery of America by Columbus. Is s landmark on the estate of the late Arthur Hun Dewell In Wellesley, Mass. The magnificent tree measures 26 feet in circumference at the base. It is a noticeable landmark on account of Its unusual sire, lt Intersects the fence which separates the fertile fields of the Hunnewell estate from the highway, and thus arrests the atten tlon of the passer by. The late Mr. Hunnewell took great pride in the ancient tree. It has with stood the 'ravages of pests for great many years and Is apparently In con dition to live for a great many more decades. The late Mr. Hunnewell once had the tree examined by an expert from the Smlthonian Institute, who de clared that it was between 400 and 600 years old. Eliot, the apostle to the Indians, fre quently passed the towering oak while going to and from South Natlck. where he preached to the Indians, the tree being beside what was the old trail.
