Chapter in. A sir Howard Brudenell of massing Grange sat at breakfast opposite his Nephew on the Day follow Jug lady Prendergast a dinner part and it struck Horace that it was Long Rance he bad seen his Uncle an such Good humor. I a so you seem 1� have had a pleasant party Horace a says sir Howard this a morning pouring out the Tea.

It is desirable at your time of life softens tiie manners and prevents a Foung Many a tastes from there was a pause. Horace of course had nothing to say. Sir Howard was meditating in what form he would Couch his proposition. A Horace a and then he heaved a sigh probably of anxiety for this project was very near his heart a Horace i wish you to now if Brudenell had never met miss Harding the chances Are that he would have received this startling announcement without any outward sign and with but slight inward commotion. As it was the had been lying awake thinking of her 4 110 night. A a the fact is a he spoke and Here his a eyes wont Down upon the Tablecloth he a it would be a Groat Relief to my another awful Sig i. A i want i want to be quite free to do As i please or May please later on about marrying again myself. I feel it is a duty to see that Tihe title and estate be carried on. If you did not exist or if you were averse to marriage i should hold it incumbent upon me to to again seek a wife. It is not my wont As you must be aware to be confidential with any one for As a Rule it is a mistake to Tell any limn an soul that a which All the world May not hear but Liis is an exceptional ease a very exceptional Case. You Wall naturally respect my i a Uncle i am sure you know you May Trust \ a i believe it. Know then that i wish a to be equally free to marry or not and this if i please even after you have taken a wife without seeing your future reduced thereby to a life of comparative j a i do not i a you must marry if Horace had turned Scarlet just now his countenance at this announcement grew very Pale. Money How horrid the word sounded. He Imd always heard of it when coupled with marriage As meaning a Par venue a daughter with her shoulders in her oars an o d Wom Rui with a face like a Tipsy Cooke Saud such like a horrors. A and yet a he reflects a and yet Why should not Gold be combined with better things Why not even with the divine Camilla herself i have certainly never a coupled the two thoughts until this moment but dear me lady Pendergast has no son she seems Rich a few thousands would do no harm there is no absolute incongruity Between a pretty woman and a banker a a i have for some time been looking about you see a went on sir Howard. A i think i have found the lady and what is More that she already looks upon you a with a favouring a Horace a heart now beat so he was a Efraind his Uncle would a hear it. A you met her last a indeed a Kettle Drums began to Roll in his ears. A i have heard you say she was very a yes a a come come sir you must know i a allude to lady Susan Graye a a lady Susan Graye a ejaculated poor Horace with a look of uncontrollable dismay which utterly bewildered sir Howard. It was evident the proposition did not smile at him As the French say. I a Well what on Earth is me matter with you a he asked a have you any fault to find with the lady sir a a a i know Tihe lady does not Honor me with the slightest preference a a a Horace you Are a boy. Tiow i Aska you could any Well brought up girl especially one of lady Susan a rank show you preference before you paid her any attention ? moreover do you think me me capable of sending my Nephew on a wild Goose Chase i know what i am a a May i venture to ask what has Jed you a to believe that lady Susan Graye cares for me a a a you May a cares for you is too Strong a. Term. That she looks upon you with sufficient favor for it to be highly probable that you May win her i love the Best reason to suppose. I have spoken to her a a you have spoken a exclaimed Horace a again changing color and grasping Tihe Edge of the table with both hands. It a i have spoken to lord Caulfield on my it own account certainly but you need not look so tragical Over it Nephew. I said you knew nothing of the a a and what did the Marquis May a i a say Why just what i expected. Fth to you might win her if you could and a Bat he would not say you nay. That poked you very much hoped i would not refuse a peerage a second time and a Apo Fanth. This was Over a week Fogo. He never was the Man to keep anything to himself for five minutes and accordingly lady Susan must have known All about it for some Days. If she made herself As agreeable to you As Ever last night it is As much As to say a win a a a in i am simply a and so you ought to be sir. A Marquis daughter Young and Beautiful with �00,000 Down and Ever so much More some Day it is enough to take the breath away of a better Man than either of Here was a position for a Young Man who fancied that he had just fallen desperately in love Here indeed was one of those obstacles which test a passion and counteract any such enemy to its growth As for instance Camilla a too favourable acceptance of his attentions. He Rig Lohy supposed that after so momentous a an announcement sir Howard would hardly expect him to assist at the pending discussion with his chief nor is it probable that his assistance on questions of farms Timber and fat beasts would on this particular morning have proved of any appreciable value to those two grave men. Accordingly lie Betook himself to a pipe and the Woods tobacco pipe of course and throwing himself Down among the primroses by a Clear Little pebbly Stream for the Sun was already warm he proceeded to review the situation. A hat could he do granting Camilla to be All that was most superlative considering that As a in it int settled what could he do it was out of the question to offend his Uncle. Without sir Howard lie is nothing has nothing. Hut stay. Is it certain Tillat Liis Little Beauty May not be nearly of Good a match As her rival v the Only grandchild of lady Prender gait might she not be heiress to Silver Mead and who knows 1kw much beside a that was very strange about her father a he muses a her looking so confused a armed even when i alluded to him. A mystery there of some kind ill be bound. And if there is does that make the daughter any the less charming he is not a Felon i suppose not Tiia if he had poisoned his grandmother i should be a Whit less in love with and so in musing and speculation in wanderings of the most ferociously Soli Tery sort of muck smoking and Little eating he wore away the Day. Somehow or other on the following evening Horace had wandered in his reveries and de Facto so much further than usual that he found himself at Nightfall not two Miles from paradises i mean Sil Velmead. Finding himself so near and the night being again Moonlight and a Balmy one of those , in Short when the very thought of bed is revolting Horace decided that he would push on and refresh Lii self with a glimpse of Dies beloved a roof. A a a who knows a he said to himself a perhaps i shall get a of As if to h is very wish out Oam ill a to bid Good night to the Flowers tripping Down the Steps without a Bat and his Young Long sight fancies it detects a Basket on her Arm and Rolfe the deerhound by her Side. She trips about from Bod to bed he fancies she is warbling some Well known Melody As she roams. Now Down goes the Basket and she flies to the swing and stays away with a will. Presently lights appear above a door window is thrown widely Back and her maid for it must be she Calls out to the Young lady. The Amiee is that of a woman no longer Young and who is urging the thoughtless girl to a hasten in out of the Coll and Dew. Doubtless the authority of a a grand May is evoked As obedience follows within a reasonable time and with Steps far slower than those with which she came Down Camilla Flower Laden now recounts the picturesque old Stair. Her hair has fallen Down during the swinging and streams and gleams in All directions hanging like a glory about her. As she readies the Center of the Terrace just opposite the open casement she stops and leans Over the parapet to take one Long last look at the Bright Moon. There she remains some seconds motionless As a picture she so resembles and then backing slowly her gaze still on the heavens she vanishes from sight. Something makes hoi Ace dare to Hope the it in that solemn interval she has murmured is name in love. Chapter v. Nothing of much moment occurred Between this evening and the Ball at has Ham. There have been a couple of wet Days and on the one or two occasions when the weather was Fine enough to tempt Horace to renew his adventure if such it can be called in the neighbourhood of his lady a Cham Ber the cruel Uncle had stepped in to prevent it by retaining him to make a fourth at the whist table an elderly colonel from the Portland and miss Laff Inch making up the party. This wily old campaigner had read the Young lovers like a Book the Day she dined at Silver Mead but she kept the discovery to use As might be advantageous. Every mistake the Young nmn made these evening at whist meant Money in her Pockett and she contented herself for the present with that pecuniary result of his Feekart Che. He rather a ought her than otherwise a thinking she might Chance to give him some of the information he had found no Opportunity of gleaning elsewhere. At first he beat about the Bush for some Little time hoping that Mia Laff Inch might refer of Hep own Accord to lady Pren Der amp St or her grandchild but no it seemed that she could talk of everything but Silver Mead. So at last he made a bold plunge. A have you seen anything of our friends since the dinner a a ooh dear yes you know i live close by. Camilla is Radiant a quite Radiant i assure you and she ought to be if what i hear is True. A marriage on the a a marriage a gasped Horace with ill concealed concern. A dear Haven to you heard Young Cyril Acton lord Hammersely a eldest son staying at the de Basley a. An enormous a a and and where did they meet a a lady Prendergast and Camilla drop Over and lunched there the Day after you were at Silver Mead but it appears the two Young people had met a Good Deal abroad when when she was with her unfortunate father you know and that it is quite a throughout miss Laff Inch had affected total blindness As to Young Brudenell a interest and anxiety. A one thing at least you will Tell me miss Laili Neh a pursued the poor boy a you said a her unfortunate what did you mean a a Why Only that a but Here they were interrupted by the Entrance of the other two and As they All moved to the whist table without loss of time for ii was already late. Miss Laili Neh chuckled a As she told herself a if the Young fool counts his Trumps to night i know nothing of human and she was a True Prophet and won thirty four and sixpence from the Young fellow she had mys Titio and what is More slept Well after it. Indeed it is dial cult to say Wlms sin miss Laff Inch would not have commit died for thirty four shillings and sixpence and slept Well aft or. It was a bout 10 of clock when Horace mounted the Dogcart for his seven mile drive to the balls a matter of Little More than half an hour with the Active piece of trotting cattle which stood Between the shafts. Chapter i. Horace found the rooms already Well filled anti dancing in full swing. A a there a miss Harding now lady Prendergast s grand it lighter As purty a girl As Ever you clapped eyes on sure she a yonder there this minute and i la introduce you As me Iraq tickler Friend. As i Tel Iino yer. The Auld lady thinks a world of me and it it la me ii. I was Over then a while ago to Silver Meh a to see her. Well a lie s a Good ten thousand a year and every Penny comes to miss Harding at her death Quot a and a he sneaker a or. Mcflinn. Tossed off another Glass of slurry to strengthen Trie Blessing. A miss Harding gets it ,�?� a is companion. That to la in Fine and refined Jiru Dencell was was supremely disgusted with what he overheard it is needless to say. A i now dare that Drunken Little doctor blackguard a thus he mentally epithet Zed him a a so much As breathe the sacred name of his Camilla at All. To every Dick and Harry of his pitiful acquaintance Quot yet for All his indignation Horace had gathered two important facts or so he thought them from the Little doctor s expansiveness. Miss Harding was positively at the Ball. then about the Money deep in these thoughts Horace strolled from to lie Buffet and almost unconsciously Bent his Steps not to the Bull room but toward a Little suite of the smaller apartments by which you could still gain the former by a circuitous route. He had hardly entered the first of these when he started violently. Seated alone there were Camilla an empty cup of Tea by her Side and a Man whom Horace at once knew and Felt to be Acton. Horace being the right sort of Man recovered his outward composure in Stan ter by virtue one May say of the blood of his ancestors walked with apparent calmness up to Camilla and shaking hands with her said a How do you do. Miss Harding i am so glad you lire Here after All. I Hope you left lady Prendergast quite Well Quot to which the Young lady who had also changed color on seeing Brudenell enter replied with cordial de Mureness a quite thank you. Tiow late you have come i was looking for you As i danced just now. May i introduce a or. Acton or. Brudenell a and the two Young men who May have Boon tingling to Fly at each others throats Shook hands at the dictate of Beauty As if it gave them both particular pleasure to become acquainted. A is this your first visit to the county a asked Brudenell pleasantly. A my first but i Hope not Iny last. Hitherto i have scarcely seen anything of the Midland a it promises to be quite a full Ball tonight miss Horace. A i Hope if you have not already promised Dhem All that you will give me a dance a was that Waltz is so far off i will give you the lancers that is the second Square dance from now i saw it written a what instead of our Waltz a a no no As Horace Felt invaded by a perfect flood of gratitude. Then suddenly Camilla said a is it not sad about poor lady Susan of course you a get heard a Horace started guiltily. Camilla marked Lute concern and perhaps ascribed it to a wrong cause. A ooh nothing so very terrible though perhaps we ought never to say that of death. It is a Cousin of lady Caulfield an old major they hardly knew but still a first Cousin. He was eighty six i believe. Lord Caulfield says they must not go out after the a ooh exactly a said Horace half absently. A a the the next dance then a a the Neyt lancers a and she moved off on Acton sarm she added rather Saucil a if you look so broken hearted 1 think All of us who have not lost aged cousins Mam conspire to console you. In be a great mind to give you the quadrille aa1 Well of done to be shocked i done to eur it a and laughing Low away Gas went.

Lady a narrow escape from being i tally Kitten by a Copperhead. Balloon sleeves ribbed with stays of whalebone saved a Young lady at West Point a few Days ago from being fatally bitten by a Copperhead Snake. The Young lady miss Florence Sears of new York visited West Point with a number of friends and while leading the party on the Mountain Side overlooking the training ground of the voting soldiers she stooped to pick a stars. Bunch of wild Flowers. As she was about grasping the Flowers she heard a startling hissing sound. Not realizing what the danger was she threw up her right Arm to Ward off some unseen peril. In a moment a Copperhead Snake struck at her from beneath a Loose Rock just above where she was standing. Miss Sears saw the reptile As it struck at her. It was too late to jump Back and the Arm that she had thrown upward caught the blow. It saved her face from injury and the balloon sleeves of her Waist almost bathed the Snake.

Few of the Many persons who carry watches Are aware of the fact that they Are always provided with a Compass. With which when the Sun is shining they can determine a North and South one. All one has to do is to Point the hour hand to the Sun and South is exactly half Way Between the hour and the figure 12 on the watch. For example suppose it is 9 of clock in the to Ruig. Follow the Rule Given above and we will find the South As indicated below. Prolong this line across the face of the watch and you have a North and South line and from this any Point of the Compass May be de Tiow to fix i Nicotian. Ter mined. This May seem strange but the reason is Plain. While the Sun is passing Over Iso degrees from East to West the hour hand of the watch passes Over Odd degrees from j o clock to it it o clock. Consequently the angular movement of the Sun in one hour corresponds to the angular movement of the hour hand in half an hour. Hence if holding the watch horizontal we Point the hour hand toward the Sun the line from the Pivot of the Lianda to a Point Midway Between the hour hand and 12 o clock will Point to the South a. Of course the watch must be set to Correct local time if it is set to Standard time the difference Between local or real and Standard time should be ascertained and allowance made therefor
