Waly and Alfred W Rded boys arrested at Gambridge to firing fifty bulldiugajtlie CHAPTER XI HEY were receiveu by Sir Frederic Flower and his nqlco jvlth the ut most cordiality who drove to the station to meet them struck Ruthven with both Interest and admir ation He was In want of a new typo of heroine for a sensational drama and this semlSpaniah young woman with her Southern beauty strong will and unguided impulses presented to him at once a character out of Which he saw the capability of making great things She met her old schoolfellow with effusion arid Ruthven with pleasant disappointment to flnd him so young and so goodlooking My dear I wonder youve not falloflr head over heels in love with him a dozen times she whispered in Margarets ear on the first opportunity I atinild I can tell you He look like a guardian in the least de Hes much more like a handsome elder And when Margaret to whom such an idea seemed like sacrilege looked shocked Carmen laughed aloud and declared she she had detected Pearl In a love affair already and that she had only forestalled the confidence she was about to bestow on her And she would have gone on with the joke if the sudden tears that rose to her friends eyes had not checked her Sir Frederic displayed a slight return of the emotion which had affected him at the first sight of Margaret on meet ing her again but it was not sufficient to be observable and he welcomed Ruthven with peculiar warmth to Ab botsville He conducted him personal ly through the whole of the fine old house and was delighted with the evi dent value his collection of paiiumgs and other specimens of art held for Ruthven The girls accompanied the gentlemen on this four of inspection which extended even to Sir Frederics private apartments There is the picture I used to tell you said Carmen to Margaret asthey stood in the dressingroom I have made two more attempts to get a look at it since coming home but its of no keeps it locked up more securely than Margaret glanced at the place indi cated and saw a heavy velvet curtain irawn across the Wall Only continued Carmen Webb says the reason Uncle Frederic has taken such a fancy to you is be cause you are something like that pic ture Isnt he a queer old fellow Quite cracked I always told you And Carmen laughed one of those strange unhealthy laughs she some times indulged in Arent you dying to hear all about having him but still I daro Bay I soe some one I ilUo What is his name Oh dont jrou wish to hear It I know that would be tho first question But you dont get It out of me yet my dear not till youva guessed at it a thousand How can I guesq what I dont know may have heard it before or Seen him who can tellin a big place like Does he live in London then Yes he was traveling like our selves I met hfm first out walking and we struck up a kind of acquaint Without being Introduced How particular you are well yes without being introduced except by ourselves then he followed me home and the next jay he threw a note over the gardetiwall and so it went till uncle itound It out and me off home But he has asked him to Abbota ville I believe so and he said he would como meanwhile I nm not al lowed to write to him which Is hor ribly If you dont care for him why should you wish to write do care in a measure Its always nice to have a goodlooking young fellow you but I have no notion of binding myself down to marry him or anything of that Margaret sighed and leaned out of the open window The moonlight streamed down In a flood of radiance and lighted up all of the unshaded por tions of the park leaving tho little leafy knolls where the deer loved to congregate alone inshadow She was thinking of Hamilton and how ready she had been to bindherself down to be faithfulto his unfalth before she knewitjvould be such Carmen she exclaimed earnestly never marry him unless you are quite sure he will be true to Who Hamiltoh Shore What did you say cried Margaret there now Ive letthe catgut of1 the bag when I wanted youto guess and were tired and then let it all come upon you as a Why The Mysterious One Is your guardians nephew Hamilton Shore I didnt know it myself till uncle caught him inmy veranda andmade such a fuss and then the young man obliged in self defense to give us his real name and address Margaret why dont you answer BttFybu think Master Hamilton was too immaculate to go awoping or are afraid his will be angry at his choosing me no why should he be Arent you and Hamilton friends Pretty well that course we are butI do not know what Mr Ruthven will say to the affair It is very sudden and he has not been Hamilton course If he sets himself ill The Mysterious One she asked of her companion as soon as they had retired to rest together Oh yes is I am cu rious to know all you wish to tell replied Margaret siuiling Youre not ia love with him are you Car men No I dont think I am He U very goodlooking and all that sort of thing to to against it an end of the matr cried Carmen not overdellghted apparently at the prospect for uncle Is determined to go by Mr Ruthveas opinion Have you got a headache Pearl Yes a very bad one I think it must be the railway traveling It never does agree with Ah you should have a lover like Hamilton to make YOU well again I had one dr two terrible headaches at Rouen and he used to sit beside me and fan me by the hour It was awful ly Jolly Dont you think hes very handsome Pearl Very And amusing And agreeable How funny it Is that other people never come to see things with the same eyes as one does ones self Now I thought him the handsomest fellow I had ever seen but uncle says he is only a tolerably goodlooking boy and you dont appear tothink much more of him Well goodnight dear I see I have nearly talked you to sleep so I will reserve the rest of my hews for tomorrow Only dont repeat what 1 said to Mr Ruthveu till uncle has broached the subject to The girls were not tp occupy the same room together this time Margaret be ing placed on the opposite side of the corridor As soon as Carmen had left her alone she burst into a flood of tears It was hard to learn that Ham ilton had so soon forgotten her and all the promises he had made still harder to flnd that he had deserted her for her bosom friend Yet how glad she felt in the midst of her tears to remember that she had not confided her own bit ter disappointment to Carmen a secret which now resolved should be for ever looked in her breast No one knew it but Mr Ruthven and herself and she oould trust Mr Ruthveu As the remembrance of his goodness and gentleness to her came into Margarets mind a warm feeling of gratitude stgHe over her Even at that moment of wounded pride she would rather be with Ruthven Hamilton than vice versa and drying her tears she retired to rest coatenttu the be lief that her guardian was fond of her and would let her reaiajn bis cowpjui ion to her Ufas eai two gentlemen occupied In earnett converse below said Sir Frederick after as I desired to sea and become qualnted with ona of whom the talks BO favorably I had another motive in AbbotsvUlo besides the hope Of num bering you amongst uay Indeed SlF And not an unnatural one WI thinkyou will When T was abroad with my neice last month we met at Rouen your nephew Mr Hamilton You did What did you think of him very well begging your don Ho got up a clandestine spondence is extreme ly thoughtless and undisciplined and should never have heard anything about it I suppose unless 1 pened to catch him one evening climbing up the posts of the veranda I thought ho was a thief and about to collar him as such when told moi his name and address adding he was a nephew to Mr I hope you kicked him Sir Frederic deprecatingly Kicking Is not much in my line Mr Ruthven but Iexamlned the young fellow and finding him to be a likely lad and that Carmen had carried her filrtatioh rather far with him I Itt to Abbotsville always sub ject to your approval that I might something more of him ibefore I mada any decision one way or the Yoii would not object then to bil marrying Miss Flower Not if he is steady and honorable My niece will have a considerable for tunei She inherits not only the united p6rtions of her father and riiyself but also the house and grounds of Abbota vllle Her husband therefore will have no need to work for Is so uncertain poor girl in her ca prices and actions that I should be thankful to see her married before thing happens to I And so ypu want to have my opin ion of my nephew Hamilton Shore i Just so Is he a young man likely tomake girl a and the estate a steady master i It wasjm the4tp of Ruthvena tongue to tell SirFrederic the whole storyot Hamilton Shores treatment of Margar el buthe refrained A man may uw one girl ill and another well It be no proof of his nephews want ot af fection for Miss Flower and might Jure Margarets future prospects No if the lad was really unworthy Iqt them find it out for themselves as he bad done and no better opportunity could be afforded them than that wblcftl brought the young traitor intocontact with the girl he and girl he had sworn devotion to at ond and the same time So further the plan ot Master visit to Abbotsville as much as his power and leave the result to natural When he answered Sir was to this To decide what sort of a husband a boy of nineteen will make is a difficult matter but Hamilton Shore has a long head when he chooses to make use of It and a keen eye to the main chance 1 do not think from what I know ot bint that he will make ducks and drakea of your nieces property but as to the other matter I should think she should Judge for You would put no pbatacles in the way of their engagement A TO BB DIAMONDS IN AMERICA Are There Any Underground Gem nanzai In This Country Importations of those precious have gone away down In 1894 they dropped to a lower point than for many years only worth brought to this country The growth luxury In the United States Is fairly measured by the imports of diamonds which in 1867 amounted to barely more than In 1889 they bad reached nearly in 1890 In 1892 This the high water mark They have off to leasthan half that figure It seems more than surprising that na diamond mines have ever been ered in the United States remarks tbfe St Louis GlobeDemocrat Occasional gems of this kind have been picked up in various states the conclusion drawn from such discoveries being that they are restricted almost wholly to a bell along the eastern base of the southern Alleghanies in Virginia and Georgia and to another belt

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
