Both he and Ito Ger were smoking and sitting at ease As 1 catered. 1 took a chair close by my Luver s Side and looked at him fondly lie returned my glance but Thiv was Ishii Milow of annoyance in his expression Llinat made me fuel uneasy. T in my mind his face t had noticed it the previous evening when lie of my father s prejudice against Nim. At last my hither saw fit to begin. U deliberate Businesslike tone or u passion. I have sent fur you. Virginia to repeat to you 1 have Ilia i by said to or. Dale. Once Aud fur ill 1 will never give my consent to your . 1 utterly and radically opposed to it. I have been from the , to you Are u Vare. If you ask for my reasons 1 in not consider this i n fir ii d to be my son in Law. He As in Iii own admission no Means to support a wife he has no ambition or l.ip. To Excel and i if now from positive Vivenee that Iii habits by no Means he paused and 1 glanced anxiously at Roger but his eyes Wera fixed of Tho Hoar Aud he sat drumming gently on the table with the fingers of one hand. Yon persevere in this Picco of. Folly contrary to my expressed wishes you do it Virginia at your own peril for i warn you that my Resolution is fixed and cannot be shaken. Do not Hope either of you by nursing the. Affair along to overcome my object ions Laler. That is a favorite resort of Young people in novels but if fathers in real life Are so weak in general 1 shall prove an exception. As you know Virginia the part of a tyrannical Parent is the last e Ever expected to be called upon to play i have allowed you indulgence and trusted Yon to an extent that i am Ligini Piug to believe was unwise but i will not waste time in words my Reso Lution is perfectly explicit. My will is made in your favor. If i should die Lyday Yon would be mistress of All Pmj Yerty. Unless you Promise me not to marry this i shall alter it tomorrow and neither of you Synill Ever receive one cent from me during my lifetime or at my decease. This sounds a threat but it is Only intended to show to tie fullest extent in my Power How fatal to your happiness i consider this Union would be. I Cau say no More than this. I cannot prevent you from marrying or. Dale if you Are Bent upon it. There Are no Laws to inn foolish women or mercenary men but you must take Tho consequences. What you have in that he continued nodding toward me is All Yon will Ever receive at my Luuis. If i am not mistaken this Young gentleman would play ducks Aud dikes with that in a very Short time. I have said Ray say. And now you Cau suit i had listened to his words with n con stantly increasing indignation that Over shadowed the remorse i Felt at Ruvii a disappointed his Hopes. So incensed was i at his aspersions of Roger that i almost laughed when he spoke of Dis inheriting me. But the taunt that Roger was courting me for my Money was most galling of All by very Force of reiteration. 1 started to my feet once More with a defiant air. It is not True. You misjudge or. Dale cruelly. To show Yon father How our love is from the base and paltry motives you impute and that we do not need your help see i rushed through the open window which led to the Piazza and before either my father or Roger divined my intention hurled with All my might the Box of securities Over twin railing into Tho sea beneath. It opened just Liefer Erechin the water and the contents were sub merged by the Seething surf. I re entered Tho parlor with a triumphant air. Roger s face wore a half be ired look As he began to realize what 1 had done. Mad cried my father with a sneer. Or. Dale will not to link you Tor that. 1 fancy. You have however Dona me an infinite he turned and left the room. When he was gone exhausted and buried my face on Roger s shoulder and sobbed bitterly. He tried soothe me and finally induced me to sit Down tie sat beside me holding my hand and urging me to Calm myself. At i Triu a to him and said with a sudden transport of new happiness and smiling through tue tears i promised to remain True to you Roger and 1 yes. Dear i know. When Yon Are a Little More composed we will talk the matter Over there was something in his tone that chilled me he was so Calm Aud i so car ried away by excitement. Do not think of my father s i said. Forget them. I shall lie perfectly Happy so Long As you Lovo he will never to answered gloomily. He is known Down town As a Man who makes up his mind once for Oil i would rather disobey my father i the ii of i be to 1 responded Grimy. Yes. But How Are we to he asked rising from tin sofa and promo Nadia Tho room nervously with his hands in his pockets. Livov i echoed. Unfortunately we should have to eat mid drink like everybody else.

But suppose we 10 Many without your lather s consent what would be result we should starve. To speak frankly i find it difficult enough to make both in is Noiret As a single Man. You Are to every luxury and com fort and have not no customer to economize. Do not misunderstand me. he continued speaking quickly struck by my expression which if my Wei adequately Lii Ivin. Must have made him . "1 know that you it capable of any it is 1 who am unwilling to permit you to give up Youv Fortune Kulir family for my Sain. If there were any Chance of your father relenting if 1 thought there was a possibility that Lime would make a differ enc in his , 1 would not Spiak so. Hut As it is 1 see no alternative for us hut an struggle with poverty that would end in Nuhad i incas. It Breaks my heart to Como to this conclusion but Justice to Yon. Well us common sense will not let to suffer you to commit a Folly which after the Glamor of the moment was Over you would it was the manner even More than the matter of his speech that stabbed me to the heart. Had he spoken less calmly and deliberately 1 might have believed that he shrank from accepting my self sacrifice and Lave regarded his Dampen ing words a Mere cloak for his own generosity. But his unconcerned and dispassionate air left no doubt in my mind tint if was he who was unwilling to face the romantic but desperate circumstances in which my futher s decree had placed us instinct told me that he in whose constancy and in Whoso Devo Tion to ideality i had believed with nil the Ordor and Trust of which 1 was capable wag Falso. And ready to subordinate a love like ours to Tei poral considerations. Yet with the persistence of one who clutches it any semblance of Hope now Ever slender i refused to Beli ovo the truth without further evidence. I should not be u Burden to you Roger can live a much less than they suppose to could both work 1 As Well he shrugged his Sli Oeklers in a talking both my hands in ins looked into my face will a trivial Smilo.

Dale it was undignified it May be to betray my feelings but my love was too Strong to die without a murmur my father looked inquiringly at us As he entered. His face us outed to to Al most Haggard. 1 said at once father to have invade no our minds that you Are right. It would be madness in us to marry with out your consent. The credit of our decision belongs to or Dale he has proved to me that our engagement should come to an end my father turned toward him with u scornful smile appreciating. 1 Thibult.
