"I will at U-Mt msks tbs trial befort I go," be said to hluiwlf, and then lis took up bla pm and wroit thua: "I lnolo you a not, MUa Eyre, from the man Femur. You will a by that that ha engages to dlacontlnue bla an noy a no, of you, and to leave you for the futtiro free and nnmoleated. And now, before I leave England on my long voy age. I pray of you to bear the appeal of my heart to yonra. Winifred, I love you with all rny aoul, with the trueat, deep eat atrangth of which paanlon la capable, and I come to you to decide my future. My happlneaa, my mlaery, are lu your haoda. It la for you to aeal my perfect bllaa by consenting to become my cherl.h ed wife, or to punlab a fault born of love, and to condemn me to a lifelong aorrow, by driving me away from the euiiahlue of your preaence. Do not decide haatlly. I shall not leave this for a week, and If your anawer Is what I acarccly dure to hope It will be, I .hall not leave at all. If you cannot And It In your gentle, wom anly heart to forgive me, I ahall go out Into the world and aeek to forget the only woman In tha world I ever really loved." When Winifred broke the aeal, and read Errol's letter, her ftrat emotion was one of Intenae relief. Then, reading the avow al of Krrol'a love, for s moment her heart relented to him, and a aad, fond recollec tion of the handsome hero of her paat worxhlp mad the teara atart Into her eyea. Then her quick pride came to tho r4IK.Utiih.e tore the letter to atoms and threw them from her. 'I will never for give him never!" ahe cried, panlouatdy; and then .ahe thought what that letter would have been to her if it had come a few days sooner. It wanted but one day to tho comple tion of the week, when Arthur Le Mer chant rushed luto Errol's room. "My dear Enrol." he exclaimed, "what la thla I hear about your leaving the ConrtT It surety la not truer r ..... ... , ,,.., wyij,-, i "I cannot Ml whether I am going or liuTT Tou ahall know to-morrow. I am wait ing for my verdict, and If It la adverae to me I shall go away, and try to forget my trouble." Two days after Enrol aald to Le Mar chant: "It's all over, and I'm going. Don't ask me any questions, old fellow I'm hard hit." Itefore Mr. Hastings left the Court he made his friend promise to play host there In the shooting aeaaon during his absence; and on the laat day of Auguat he waa atanding on the deck of his beau tiful yacht Oenone looking down into the blue waters of the Mediterranean. His thoughts were full of tenderness to the woman who had seorned him. "Bu ! risht," h '"1. "but X think, if she had known how I loved her, she would have found It In her heart to for give me." a . A fortnight later Lady Grace Fnrquhar, by dint of subtle diplomacy, managed to secure what she had for aomo time past set her heart upon, and that was to prac tically adopt Winifred Eyre as her pro tege, If not as a daughter. She was very anxloua that Winifred should have an opportunity of being, Introduced to so ciety and the coming shooting season at Sir Claxton'a estate. Endon Vale seemed to sfford Lady Grace the opportunity. Among thoae who would be present for the shooting, her nephew, Lord Harold Ersklne, who was quite taken with Flora Champion and whom ahe knew that young lady, In default of becoming Mrs. Hastings, would only too gladly accept. With this trump card in her hand. Lady Grace accepted a dinner invitation at Hurst Manor, the home of the Cham pions, and while there delicately, yet plainly Insinuated to Sir Howard and to Mrs. Champion that uuless Mrs. Cham pion and Flora would drive with her to Mr. Kyre'a farm snd second her invita tion to Winifred to come to Endon Vale there would be no invitation for Miss Champion. Moreover, Flora would have to bind herself to treat her cousin. with at least ordinary courtesy during their stay In the same house. Sir Howard acceded readily enough to this arrangement as long as he was not obliged to speak to his granddaughter, whom he had never apoken to or even seen In his life or in any way to recog. nice her father. It was a bitter pill for Mrs. Champion and Flora to swallow, but the thought that if Flora did not go to Endon Vale, Sir Harold Ersklne might possibly fall In love and propose to Wini fred, obliged them to give a grudging con Bent. - The young girl was gathering roses in the garden as the carriage from the Manor drove cp the road. ' Sho turned away to the house. She could not bear the contemptuous looks the Champions cast on her as they went by. But then she heard the carriage stop, and ahe look ed back In surprise. The footman was letting down the steps, and Mrs, Cham pion waa descending, followed by Lady Grace Farquhar. What could It mean? The blood rushed to her face, and for a moment she hesitated. Then she went forward. ' , "You did not expect visitors so early, my dear?" said Lady Grace, kissing her. "Mrs. Champion has come to call upon Mrs. Chsmpjon came forward and shook hands with her, and uttered a few polite commonplaces, which put Wini fred at her ease. She had a great deal too much tact to allude to the past In deed, she behaved precisely as though she and Winifred saw and heard of each Other for the first time, t - v. Winifred soon recovered her compos ure, and Invited them to enter the house. Mrs. Champion was struck by tbe teste and elegance displayed In the miniature drawing room, and while Winifred was talking. U.Jady Grace, ahe examined her keenly, She'was forced to confess to herself that this girl who bad been ao long Ignored, and so much disdained, was both elegant and pretty, and tbat her style was unexceptionable. The convic tion did not please her at all. As they were taking leave Lady Grace said: "Then remember, my dear, tbat next Thursday wek, at three o'clock, I shall send the carriage for you." "Iray do not tblnk of such a thing. Lady Grace," Interposed Mrs. Champion; "you bave Invited Flora the previous day; let ber delay ber visit for one day, and my carriage shall take them both." Lady Grace assented, and Wlnlrred Biade ber acknowledgments very grace fully. Then her guests departed, snd she waa left alone, wondering very much at what had befallen her. "A fortnight ago," she thought, "snd what has happened yesterday and to-day would bave been the realisation of one of my fondest hopes; and now now 1 aeem to care nothing for it. To bave been recognised by the Cbnmplona, to bave been invited to atay with a great lady, to be Introduced Into society, would have I wen a glimpse of paradise; and now tbat I am wretched, and heart-broken, and miserable, all these honors are thrust upon me, and I do not value them one whit. I ahall like to be with tbat dear, kind Lady Grace, but to the reat I aeem perfectly indifferent. Are we never to be bappy in thla world, but to go on longing keenly after something we tblnk happiueita. and when we at last attain to it, to find we have lost tbe desire for It, and that It givea ua no pleasure?" CHAPTER VIII. All Lady Grace Fafquhar's guests had arrived, save one. That oue waa Wini fred Eyre. On the morning of the day on which she and her cousin were to have appeared at Endon Vale, a letter came to Lady Grace, saying that Madame de Montolieu waa aeriously ill with an at tack pf bronchitis, and that until she wss sufficiently recovered Winifred could not leave her. the same, and, if the truth must be told, ahe was very well satisfied with what had occurred. The Idea of driving over to Endon Vale with her cousin had been most distasteful to her; and now that she waa relieved from that unpleaaant neces sity she was radiant, and, as her broth er, who accompanied her, remarked, in a most unusually good temper. The greater part of Lady Grace Far qnhar's guests were strangers to her. Those she knew were Lord Harold Ers klns, Miss Alton, the Honorable Evelyn Van and his aiater. As the reader will pass some time In the company of the visitora at Endon Vale, .it may not be superfluous to enter into a few particu lars concerning them. Lord Harold Ers klne has already been mentioned; so we will begin with Mr. Francis Clayton, who from his cousinship to the host claims priority of mention. Francis Clayton was a man who would have, completely baffled the researches of those estimable people who persistently find good In everyone. There wss not an amiable trait in his character, nor a kind action of his on record; and yet he passed muster In society, because he possessed a certain degree of manner, and because his Income was a very large oue. He was not a man to charm women, and yet there waa many a one who would have beeu content to Ignore hla evil qualities and take him for the sake of his rent roll. Francis Clayton was 37, and it was bis boast that he had never made any woman an offer of marriage. Miss Alton had been at Endon Vale some days, and was a great favorite with everyone In the house. Her aunt, Lady Marion, was in Ireland, and as she was not particularly attached to her prim old grandfather and grandmother, whom her aunt visited annually, she had been very glad to accept Lady Grace's invitation to spend a month with her. Marion, or Fee Alton, as her fond aunt had chris tened her, was the prettiest, sprightliest little coquet in the world. Her mother and Lady. Marion were twin sisters, and the former having .formed an attachment tor a handsome young captain in the army whom her father would not hear ot ran off with him, and subsequently accom panied him to India with .his regiment, where she died. Two years arter, her handsome young husband caught a fever, which carried him off in less than a week, and then their two children were sent to England. The elder, a boy, died on the passage home, and the little girl was received with open arms by her aunt as a precious charge from her dearly belov ed sister. . Lady Marion was by this time married to a baronet of considerable wealth, but she had no children; and when Sir Mar maduke Alton died, ten years after their marriage, the title went to a younger brother. He was, however, able to leave her a handsome income for ber life, and Lady Marlon Alton lived in very good style. She was devoted to her niece, who she Insisted should take her name; and to prevent any inconvenience from their both having the same Christian name Lady Marion rechristened her pretty lit tle niece Fee, and a very appropriate name it was. At the time we write Fee Alton was 18, and just through her first season. She was small, but perfectly symmetrical; it was only envy that prompted people to say sometimes she was nothing but an animated wax doll. Everyone admired and liked her, and she liked everyone in return. She was the life and soul of a party, with her quick wit and keen sense of the ridiculous, and If she was a little malicious sometimes it was impossible to be angry with her, she was always so eager to atone for it ' As. opposites frequently attract each other, she was at the present time engag ed in a desperate flirtation with Cor. Ivers d'Aguilar, a tt, dark, melancholy looking man (albeit decidedly handsome), who was very much In lor, with her. He bad been all through tb, Indian war, and on bis return to i-.';-!od, looking very thin and worn, he watmade quite a bero of by all the wona tf, sod looked his part extremely welL I suppose that If two men from the op posite poles bad beo brought together onder one roof, tlicf could not bar, dif fered more eswnU;.!! than Col. d'Agui lar end Mr. Clayton. Ooa was generous In heart and tuind, flriralrous to women. Irresolute, diffident lu himself, and with tbe courage of a lion; th other well, we already know what Francis Clayton was. And yet these two m-s had something la common a sentiment which la one was a tender, chivalrous affectlonf In the other a base, selfish passion. , This sentiment was love of Fee Alton, For the first, absolutely tbe first-t!jte la bia Ufa Mr. Clayton wss, as he confessed to himself. In love-confosndedly In love with a pret ty, little, malicious, teaalng, Impertinent fairy, snd could not help himself. Lady Grace's guests included Mr, Frsle, a connection of ber husband's, who hsd recently some into a very good living, but had strong sporting tendencies; Cap tain Culloden, of tbe Guards, a very plain, quiet individual, with a good Income and considerably lts brslns; and the Mon orsble John Flelden, a universal and most accommodating genius, who was always bappy to repay hospitality by making himself agreeable, and amusing the com pany.' - These were the people Whom Miss Champion found assembled at Endon Vale, and I think ber first sensation on being introduced to them wss a slight cbsgrin at finding no great people among them. Winifred had arrived it Endon Vale, and waa sitting in her room, dressed for dinner, nntil Lady Grace should come In, ss she bad promised, and take her down stairs Into tbe drawing room. Mrs. Champion had been prevented paying a visit to Lady Grace, as she bad lu tended; but she, nevertheless, fulfilled ber promise of sending Winifred in her csrrlsge. When the letter arrived she found het kind hostess slone, all her guests being away on an excursion to the neighboring woods. They hsd spent a pleasant after noon together, and Just as the wheels ot the returning carriages were heard, Lady Grace sent her young friend away to dress, promising to call for her on her way to tbe drawing room. This she did, and when they entered the drawing room there was no one in it but Lord Harold Ersklne, who came up Immediately to be introduced. . "Harold," aald his aunt. "I leave Miss Eyre to your charge until dinner time, so do your best to amuse her. Lord Harold forthwith devoted hlmselt to being agreeable to his new acquaint ance, and succeeded perfectly. She felt quite st her esse, and chatted early to vuu ui tuts room opeueu auci a magnin cent young lady, attired in sweeping lace ana sun. entered. . Tbe crimson color flushed into Winifred's cheeks as she recognised her haughty cousin. They had never met since it had been agreed the farmer'a daughter waa to be noticed. "What will she do?" wondered Wiul fred. "Will she speak to me, or will ahe wait until Lady Grace introduces us?" (To be continued.) IS A RAINY-DAY FINANCIER. A Small Bey Who Has son Original Plea for Earning 2Z:ey, "The small boy or at least one small boy has found a new way of making money," said a young woman the other day who had made the discovery. "Recently," she continued, "I went down town to do some shopping. When I left the sun was shining brightly and the skies were blue. Through the vag aries of our delightful New York cli mate, when I got out at the 116th street station on my way home it was raining cats and dogs, or bailing cabs and om nibuses, ns you prefer. I was gathering my skirts for a frantic rush when a boy'a voice accosted me. "'Take you home cheap under an umbrella, lady?' he Inquired. '"How much?' I said. "'Where .tor he asked, promptly. ' "'One Hundred and Nineteenth street " 'Three blocks for 5 cents, he re sponded. We were off In a moment, and I questioned him. - "'Yes'iu; soon as school's out, when It rains, I got our umbrella and go over to the elevated station and take 'em home, three blocks for 5 cents for one person. When they's two together, I walk behind In the rain and let 'em carry the umbrella 'emselves. Oh, yes, I generally make about 25 cents at reg ular pay from the ladles, but always more If It don't look like rain early In the afternoon and the rain comes sud den. . . , . ..... "'I could make more If I had rub bers with me, but ladies' feet is such different sizes I'd have to carry a whole store to fit 'em. ' No, 25 cents Isn't a great deal, but It's money for a 10-yeai kid. " 'And then, you know, a good many of the ladles pays me extra. There was a lady before you, a few minutes, that gave me a quarter. You look so much like her I'd almost think you was her. A quarter? Oh, thank you, thank you very much, ma'am.' 'VYes, it's a paying scheme," said the young woman, according to the New York Times. "That chap Is the sort," she went on, "who'll grow Into a penni less young man, persuade some clever heiress to marry him, and then make people say they wonder how he ever happened to bind himself to such a giri." - - - Stylo. "And have you seen your little baby brother yet?" Inquired the caller. . "Yes," replied little Ethel Blugore, "and I was so disappointed In It" "Why?"

The Interstate Commerce Commission returned to New York today to continue the Inves tigation into the complaint of W. R. Hearst that the coal-carrying railroads bave violated and are violating the anti-pooling section of the Sherman anti-trust law. Tbe commission post poned the hearing until the United States Circuit Court had passed on the right of tbe coal road presidents to refuse to answer questions aa to con tracts between the coal companies and tbe railroads. Robert M, Ollphant, ex-president of the Delaware & Hudson, one of the re spondent railroads, was the first wit ness, lie corroborated the statements of the other coal men, who have testi fied that the price of coal to the public la to be raised 10 cents a ton a month until a maximum increase of 50 cents a ton is reached. He waa not prepar ed to say that the increased cost of production would not exceed 30 cents. "We could get a higher price if we asked for It" he added. It was out of deference to the needs of the public, the witness aald, that the price of coal waa kept at 1 5 just after the strike, when the independent operators were getting $8 to $10. - Adelbert Moot, of counsel for the Erie system, protested that the com mission has no jurisdiction in any mat ter that concerns the price of coal. The commission decided it could con sider the prices realized for the pro duct to arrive at the reasonableness or the unreasonableness of the freight rates. Judge Campbell, the legal represen tative of the Reading system, declared his clients ready to concede that the price of coal is about $5 per ton, and tbat the price will increase nntil $5.50 is reached. s ' Mr. Moot, attorney for Mr. Oliphant. argued that, as they handled bo coal but from its own mines, neither the commission nor Congress had any au thority to investigate its prices. The commission overruled the objection. Mr. Shern read from the record the contract between J. J. Jermyn and the Susquehanna Coal Company, made on November 1, 1900. By that contract the Jermyns agreed to sell the entire products of their mines to the Susque hanna & Western Coal Company at certain prices, ranging from 50 per cent of the tide water price realized for pea coal to 65 per cent realized fo? stove and chestnut coal. The commls son adjourned until tomorrow. WAR ON ARABS. France Will Panlsh Rebels for Attacking Oovernor Qenerat. Beni-Ounif, Algeria, June II.
