The sudden horror of .the revelation that Horace had drawn forth bore down upon Ethel's mind with a crush- ing To her artificialized understanding the disgrace was more "than she could ever hope to bear, and Horace's ei- pressed thought that he should never be able to hold up bis head again was but a vivification of her own.

When the first astonishment had passed and she had time to realize what had oc- curred, events that had seemed but fleeting Impresses rose up before her In all .their vivid nakedness. -Mme. de Champigny had. looked at her with astute contempt, she was sure, and she dimly remembered seeing the look of horrified amazement upon the patrician features of the Karl of Hawcastle. Then, with an awakened resentment; the figbttag plebe- ian Simpson stock, the stock that'had upheld -its end- in battle against oppression in several wars, came back to her with a rush, decided tc see this awful "man and give him tc understand that he must go away al once and never insult her again by his uncouth and vulgar presence.- Such business as had to be transacted could be done through an intermediary. With a bracing 01 ber spirit she stepped forward resolutely and came up close behind Pike as be stood with drooping "jaw gazing in perplexity after the retreating Horace. Ethel cast a look of loathing upon the straight back of the guardian of her peace and "Not ouly that" "And 1 guess you thought I'd aeg lecUd you a good deal."

We have not been so situated that such a course was feasible here, but eonuitious afe such now that we are to have some prominent speakers this winter. It seems a pity that the Canadian Clubs and the school authorities could not combine forces so that, every' one might have a chance to hear good speaking.
