Bar Harbor Record (Newspaper) - November 28, 1900, Bar Harbor, Maine A ,. Of. 19��. 8 or of Chap tbsp a a a i v a tear up that Pluck of Rux p i or. Miss st la Moreton is a Fine old Eli in Othan Hou standing on Hsing Grousl. As we can \ it Quot a tie straight Btu Twer i two rows of ancient fantastic ii by . D hollies i was impressed by the that a Lile nity of the place which was n u 1. Nod a is we Drew up before u great a in i 1 Lonnay and were us tiered into n is 1k\11 supported by massive pillars of i veil White Stone. A roaring log fire in til a immense fireplace threw a Ruddy glow i v. R the Long array of Armor and Kmil 1111 weapons which lined the Walls Iund iii Ulo the Pale Winter Twilight out Sido a a k Bleak indeed. Charles emerge in and Graceful out of an sex qui it a Ulf tor sauntered up to Tho fire Ami asked where sir George Dan vers was a i to stood inside the wide fire Lari. Leaning against one of the pillars Wip ported the towering White Bono Chimney piece covered with heraldic designs and Coats of arms he looked n wort tiler representative or an ancient race than i fear he really was. Quot so they have put the stage at that end in front of the pillars Quot he remarked nodding at a wooden erection. Quot quite right. I could not have placed it bettor myself. What Broom sir George is in the drawing room Rajie and Tea As i perceive is going on at this moment. I onic col. and we followed the Butler to the drawing room. I am not a person who easily becomes confused but i must own i did get confused with the Large party into the midst of which we were now ushered. I soon made out sir George Danvers a Delic Ite but irascible looking old gentleman who received me with dignified Cordi Mility but returned Charles Greet in it Wah a be in formality and coldness Vilich i was pained to see family stir it Tion being in my opinion the chief by. In i of a truly Happy Home. Charles i already knew and with the second Bon Ralph a Ruddy smiling Young Man with any amount of White Teeth 1 had no diff Mculty but after that i became hopelessly involved. I was introduced to an elderly lady Ilioiu i addressed for the rest of the i i iii As lady Danvers Mitil Charles i mentioned trat his Mother was if id and that until the deceased wife s m to r ill was passed he did not Antici pay Miljat his aunt Mary would take .11 herself Tho position of Stepmother to h i of a Diane Nei hews. Tho severe Illi ily lady then who beamed so i. 11\ upon Ralph and regarded Charles Puli Mali Manifest coldness was their mint lady Mary Cunningham. I 11 known sir John slightly in her v Luigi she said As she graciously made fur to on her sofa and she exd a very proper degree of regret at lii hidden death considering that Holia not been a personal Friend in any or. A a it All have our faults col. Middle to ii Quot said lady Mary with a gentle kir i which dislodged a Little Colony of Enimio Frum the front of her dress. Quot sir a Quot Lin like the rest of us was not exp iii to Iliouch i have no doubt the soft Cirii influence of age would done i iii i since i knew him to smooth acer a tics of character which were info Stu ii icly Intro higly marked in his Early i liti evidently not known sir John ills later years. As the continued to talk in this Strain i idea voted to make out which of Tho Yoi i ladies present was the one to whom a Ralph w is engaged. I was undecided fish to which it was of the two to whom i had already been introduced. Girls ays seem to me so very much alike is i la rally pretty girls and these were Ijo tii of them pretty. I do not mean that Tivey resembled each other in the least for one was dark and one was fair Quot it which was miss Aurelia Grant Ralph s Fiancee and which waa miss Evelyn Derrick a Cousin of the family it Oxild not make out until later in the evening when i distinctly saw Ralph Tho fair one in the picture gallery Quot i gtd i instantly came to the conclusion that she was the one to whom he was engaged. 1 asked Charles if i were not right its to stood in front of the Hall Ere before Tho rest of the party had assembled for dinner and he told toe that i had indeed it the Nail on the head in this instance though tor his own part he never Laid much stress Wakelf in such an occurrence having Tomid it prove misleading in the extreme to Quot draw any conclusion from it he Forth informed me that iss Derrick wat the Yoong lady with dark hair who had poured out Tea and whom he hud lavish by with some of his conversation Afaro. I admired to a e. As did Charles who had Nev see a Piaf tire ii Stivin jaw before in Radii Jug hit we a Charm Duff Little in Kim a Owler Befts a it edit ind a Pink had White complexion off a of an Irish a cent Wpm him . Charl Witald he Imd fear a ample a ion in it it pm m Tomk Mcuay Vii done tui tue Ohio eng we trim Ftp i tim. I did not a quite Eatock his Maun any but it Oertl info we a Beautiful Gomel iii had then a he was so Bright a of rely and showed Sach pretty Utah Teeth when she naked she was Quoita dough Tinl. I did not wonder at Ralph s being so much in love with bar and Charles agreed with me. Quot there is nothing Tytko a Good complexion he Remar iced gravely. Quot one May be led away to like a Pale girl with a mind for a time but for permanent Domestic happiness give me a Good complexion mid a dimple Quot he added As if it were Jin afterthought. Quot i feel i could not bestow my Best affections on a woman without a dimple. Yes in de do Ralph has chosen now i do not agree with Clarles there As i have always considered that a woman should have a certain amount of mind just enough in fact to enable her to appreciate a Superior one. I said As much to Charles but he Only laughed and Siirid it was a subject on which opinion had always varied. A a How did he meet her Quot i inquired. Quot on Tho Rigi last summer Quot said thales. Quot i am thinking of going there myself next year. Lovely orphan sat by lady Mary at table d Hote. Read tracts a resented by lady Mary. Made acquaintance. Lovely orphan s travelling com minion or governess discovered to be live sister of defunct travelling companion or governess of Idy Mary. Result warm Friendship Ralph like a Dutiful Nephew appears on the scene. Fortnight of Fine weather. Interesting expeditions. Romantic attachment cemented by Diamond and Pearl ring from Hunt amp to Skelps. There is Tho whole Story for Evelti Derrick joined Usas he finished speaking. She was a tall Graceful girl gentle and dignified in manner with a Pale refined face. She was pretty in a Way but not to compare to Aurelia. Evelti had an anxious look about her too. Now i do not approve of a girl looking gave she ought to be Bright Sod Happy with a smile for every one. It is All very Well for us men who have Tho work of the world to do to look grave at times but with women it is different and a woman Jil ways looks her do st when show Milan to least i think so. Then Aurelia came Down perfectly dazzling in White Satin then sir Georgo then Ralph giving an to lady Mary who suffered from rheumatism in her foot. Then came the Gong and there was a Rustle Down of Mure i eople Young and old friends of Tho family who had come to act or to see their sons and daughters act. As i never could get even their names right i shall not attempt to give any account of them especially As they Are not of in Ortance in any Way. After dinner on entering the drawing room i found that great excitement prevailed among the ladies respecting sir John s jewels. About his sad Fate and costly legacy they All seemed fully informed. I had myself almost forgotten the reason of my visit in my interest in my new surroundings not having even As yet Given up the jewels to sir George Danvers or Ralph but at Tho urgent request of All the ladies at once Ralph aged me to bring them Down to to seen and admired then and there before the rehearsal began. Quot they will All be yours you know Quot Ralph said to Aurelia. Quot of n shall Wear them on your wedding Quot you Aro always talking about being married Quot said Aurelia with a Little pout Quot i wish you would try and think of something else to Sav. I was Quitty looking Forward to it until i Camo Here and new i am Nile Pinto tired of it Ralph laughed Deli a tech and sir George reminding i me that everyone wan dying of anxiety himself due lulled i ran upstairs to take Tho Brown Bat from around my neck and in a few minutes returned with it in my hand. They were All waiting for me lady Miry drawn up in an chair beside an Ebony table on Wlsh a Small space near her had been cleared Charles Ahme holding rather aloof sipping his cot fee with his Back to the tire. Quot Don t Jostle Quot he said As they All crowded round me. Quot Evelyn let to beg of you not to Elbow Forward in the it unbecoming manner. Observe How aunt Mary restrains herself. Take time Middleton your Coffee in getting cold. Won t you drink it first Quot As he finished speaking i turned the contents of the bag upon the table. The jewels in the Bright lamplight seemed to Blaze and bum into the Ebony of Tho table. There was a general gasp a silence and then a chorus of admiration. Charles came up behind me and looked Over my shoulder. Quot Good gracious Quot said lady Mary solemnly. Quot Ralph you Are a Rich Man. Why Mino Are nothing to them Quot and she touched a Diamond and Emerald necklace on her own neck. Quot i never know poor sir John had so much Good in Quot of Ralph Ralph Quot cried Aurelia clasping her Little hands with a deep sigh. Quot and will they really be my very own Quot Ralph assured her that they would and Liat Slio should act in them Tho following night if she liked. I think there was not u woman present who did not envy Aurelia As Ralph took up a flashing Diamond Crescent and held it against her fair hair. I saw Evelyn turn away and begin to tear up a Small piece of paper in her hand. To men Aro very jealous of each other especially the Nice by which i mean the pretty ones i was sorry to see jealousy so plainly marked in such a charming looking girl As Evelyn but women Aro All the same about jewels. Aiu Lia blushed and sparkled and pouted when the Asp caught in her hair and Shook her Little head impatiently and was altogether in chiming. After burst of admiration had sabsi4 gun. Marat a an old Indian offi Owr who had bees somewhat in the mar Camo no a a a looked Long at tha glittering mass non the table. Quot Arey Odaware be said at last to Ralph pointing to the Crescent Quot that those diamonds Ard of enormous value i have not seen Suomi stones in any shop in London. I dare not say what that one Crescent alone is Worth or that Emerald. Bracelet. Jewels of such value As this Are a give he stood shaking Hiis head a Little and turning the Crescent in his hand. Wonderful Quot he said Quot wonderful i to not tear up that piece of Rice paper. Miss Derrick Quot he added taking it from her. A the Crescent was wrapped in it and i will put it round tag iii. All th339 Stonos want polishing and Many of their resetting. They ought not to a tumbled together this Way in a bag with nothing to prevent them scratching each other.
