But . . alrainad bimielf and fell to thinking over tba Tktioua maaaa of aacapinftbi. diitiea, A freib appail to Ur. Htraiglitway ba knew to be hopalau. That worthy aacetio did not only look upon cricket iti a friv. oloua waata of time, but be wan a strong advocate of tha celibacy of thn r\�raj. HE BoT. Thomas Uax-tar was a curate of tba muscular, energetic type, whisb, fortunately for the church, ia turned out not un-fraqoently by our universities and public Hchools. lie was a big, briMd-sbonldered yonng man, who, be-aides dlstinguialiiag himself greatly both on the river and in tha cricket flald, bad taken a vary respectable degree, for be waa by no moans afraid of hard work of any description. 8uch men often make capital nuraona, and Tom waa hardly leas energetic ia hia Sariah work than ba bad been iu very liferent spherea of action nt Eton and Oxford. But there were limit, to )lr. Baxter's endurance; he liked an occasional holiday, and this waa the only point npon which' he and bia vicar, the Rev. Heptimoa Straightway, ware not entirely agrtad. TbeUev. Saptimaawaa au, aad took a aavara and gloomy view of tha plaaaurea of Ufa. Ha worked terribly bard in aa East-end parish, knew nothing and cated laaa alioat outdoor sports, or. in fael, abont any form of amaaemant, and fully axpaetad his ourates to follow nn-haaitatiagly in tha aitramaly narrow and taap path np which ha lad tbem. Hence it eama to pasa that Mr. Straightway ax-parianead conaidarabla difficalty in finding curataa after his own heart; tha loanti BMn wore eontinoaliy laaving blm for laai ardnoiM dntiai, aad the Tlcar'a opioioa of hnaan aatura in ganaral, and f the vonnger ganeratioa of cnratea in partionlar, aleadlly giaw woraa. In Tom Uaatar, howavar, ba really thoaght ha poisaased a troaanra, and tba danger of workiag a wiMing horaa to daath never so much as entered into bia bead. Poor Tom did his vary boat to latisfy Mr. Straigbtway'N reqalrauiants, for ha realty reapaolad tba man and valued immensely bis good opinion, but. as hat already iHian iadicatad, be could not help appear, t he ra Moreover, byjnerely asking uim, ami tliiH* be cor- Icagiag that bia luparior would enter Uttia maia into bii own barmieaa liking for ooeaaional laUaf and aympalbiia with bia paaaioa for rowing aad all that was eouaatad with atblattoi. At tba liaM I write of Iba oriekat sea-on waa ia fall awing, bat Tom'a datlas bad nal only ptaraalad bia troa play, tag ia a atngia aialab. but a�aa fiwa look, lag on at ana a fov baaia ^d to spend aa mncb time there si. ha poaiibtv could. Ha knew, of courae, ttiat ba would be car-tain to meet any numlMr of bis old frienda, ana that the whole proceedlug waa extremaly riakv, but he consoled bimaalf with the thonght that as Mr. Straightway raialv if ever went into social of any lort, aa wai not at all likely to hear aaythU� about it. Bo ha an-aooncad hlmialT iu tha pavilion and waited tha beginning of the play with plaisarabta Impatience. The Heatbcotaa were all antbuiiastie cricketer*, and ba oountod on tbair appearance by I'i o'elook at tha lataat Tba Mleb commaacad in dna cooraa, but upon it� Tarying fortaaea it ia not naoaiaary to dwell.

Tom glanced banladly round, the door of the drag waa open and no ona wm looking. He accordingly plunged iu head foremoat, ihni tba door, and to make aaauraoea donbly aoia, pulled up the wooden blind. Than be breathed mors freely. But what on Mrth woald the Haathewtae tbbikr A confederate was absolutely aecaisiry. Tba Heatbi otas' fsmiW butler. Mr. Binns, wM an old friend of Tom's aad might h� railed upon. Baiter aapied Uinns epaning a liottle of cbampaoBe and at* traded bis attentioo as noiaeleiily M possible. 'BinuM!* he whispered, in great Mi la-tlon, "please say to Hiss Alice that I am not wall, and that I h^ve gone to take a walk, to bathe my bead-say anything, Biana-bnt for meroy'a sake don't let her know that I'm in hera. Don't let auybody know. You won't tell, will you?" he con-tlnnad, piteously. Mr. Binna thought that Tom waa off hia bead, bat hia iuipaaaiva face betrayed uo surprise. 'Certainly, air. Any other mesa^e? *Ko! that will do-and, Binna, come back hero at once; I want you to dosomo-thiagelse." Tftsair " Tha message caused some little surprise aud much svmpathy. 'Poor fellowt' said Hisi Alice; 'it all comas from working ao bard iu tbone terrible uluiiis, and never takiug a boli-dajr.- When Bina.i ratnraed, Toni asksd in Ihe name agitated whispar: "Did you notice a tall, tbin gentleman -a clerijymaa-standing lie^iide the drag iuat now?" Yasdir." "Do you see him now?" 'Veasir," Htid Biuns, almost whirtperini;, 'he's a-atanding close here " "Ooo-l gracious'." murmured Tom. 'Look bero! come aud tell wben bo'i gone." And Tom pulled up the other woodeu blind half-way and cowered on the lloor among tbe cusbioua aud duat-cloaka. It wu terribly hot and stuffy, but he dared not move uutil Binns returned, and that per>iouai(� waa absent for no ies'4 tbau half an hour by Tom'x watch.

'Mr. Baiter, air," wiiinpored Biuus, 'the clerical gout, Hir: be* ou tbo roof of our draK-" "You ilout say so!" grjJiueil Tom. *Ue IS indeed, sir.

I moat Hea him alone.' Tom pulled himaelf together ith a jerk, opened bis heavy ayea, and found himself coofrontod by Ulee Alice Hcathcote, who stood with flusbod cbMka and indignint ezpreasion at tbe door of the drag. 'Are jrau awake, air." ahe inquired, with elaborate aternness. 'Awaka! yas. why not, dear?' stammered Mr. Baxter. Then what is tba meaning of this?
