A who could have believed it a she glances at her Host her face full of genuine Surprise and lie feels intensely fluttered. A i Ain so glad y of Haven to Felt a poor Man a says Cissy vaguely leaving it doubtful whether she intends Lier sympathy for the major or his wearied Friend.

Pre Ivy Rettier As obliged Quot Iiran Kasmere the Whitleysr old place and thin is Oakland. My Certie but you have had a walk a exclaims Hie housekeeper lifting Lier hands in dismay. A Why it is four Miles from Here by the common and eight by the Road and what an evening tor such a journey see How dark the night has grown a drawing aside the curtains to peer out. A i fear no human being could find his Way to Brank Mere this hour in such weather unless he knew the Road Well and even then it would be dangerous to make the attempt. Hear How the storm rages and the wind howls and tile Snow comes thick and fast it is a wild time in a thinking we shall have before the morning. But rest easy miss if As you say you told \ our Mamma you were going to the Village she will believe you Are Safe there with mrs. Stilton of the a i Hope so a says Cissy with a sigh. At this moment there is a Knock at the door and somebody without waiting for permission opens it and walks boldly in. The new Comer is a Young Man of about Twenty nine tall and finely formed with a Well shaped head. So much can be discerned in the Shadow and then lie comes quickly up to the table right within the Ray of Tho lamp so that Cissy can see him distinctly he is evidently a the master a the hero of the hour the one ingredient indispensable if she would throw a touch of Romance into the adventure and there fore it is sadly dispiriting that at first sight Cissy must acknowledge him disappointing. In spite of his Fine figure and commanding height he is like anything in the world but a greek god. In fact he is decidedly Plain. His Mouth is Large his nose is Long his eyes his Only redeeming feat me Are a dark Gray kindly Ami honest. His hair does not admit of description being cropped so closely to his head in the prevailing fashion of the present Day As to be almost invisible. His forehead is somewhat too Square yet there is a gentleness a Bright Ness and withal an amount fit strength about Bis lace that redeems its want of Beauty. A malay i come in mrs. ?&Quot says the Young Man with a smile that lights his whole face perhaps he is smiling at the Absurdity of b s question delivered from the Middle of the room mrs. It cards courtesies and bids him Welcome. Then he conies a Little nearer even to the Hearth Rug and addresses Huist if to his unexpected guest. A Peters has just told me of your unlucky walk a lie says politely. A i am so sorry about it. But glad More than i can Ray that you humid your Way Ile is gazing with suppressed but evident curiosity at the pretty girl who appears half lost in the embrace of the big Arm chair and who has raised herself and is a. No Back at Bim shyly with heightened color but Clear Earnest eyes. A i Hope you Are quite comfortable a he goes on with increased cordiality now he has seen her. A i know mrs. Richards has done All she can for you but a hospitably a dinner is ready and you must be hungry you know Aud i thought i would come in myself and ask you to Dine with me. There is nobody hut this wind up to his speech is so naive that miss Rivers has much ado to suppress the smile that lurks in the Corners other Mouth threatening every moment to betray her. This is ail advert tire with a vengeance she begins to feel like a heroine in a novel Alt but in one Point. Ile is right she is hungry disgracefully most unromantic ally hungry Aud thinks with a pleasure not to Btl subdued of the dinner beyond. An hour ago when first she arrived she Hail Felt too exhausted to partake of anything mrs. Rth Ards had Laid before Lier but. Now that recovery had set in and warmth Aud it is have done their work. She can not help remembering she Lias eaten nothing since Twood clock. And that it is now almost seven. Vet will it not be Rattler a strange thing to Dine Lete Ute e with her unknown Host and yet again w ill it not Seebe prudish to refuse As evidently he sees nothing Iii it in Lier perplexity she glance sap pealing by at the Only other woman in the room. Mrs. Richards is equal to the occasion. A i think miss Rivers some dinner will do you Good a she says respectfully a you have eaten nothing since you came. And if you will permit me i shall have a cup of Tea for you Here directly dinner is at an now this last is a master stroke on the part of mrs. Richards it gives Missy a feeling of Protection a sort of conviction that site belongs to mrs. Richards and that though parted from her for a Little while she will ultimately be expected to return and deliver herself up to her rightful owner. She smiles at or. Graven Cissye a smile is a a thing of Joy forever a and rising accepts the Arm he otters her. And walks away with inn de place in Kent is so much far More comfortable but to do so. Lie talked me into it. But now a warmly a i feel i owe even the major a debt of gratitude As my coming Lias enabled me to Boot some slight use to a even that miserable Solace is denied you a returns miss Cissy with a Calm smile a if you reflect that. Even if you had remained in Kent mrs. Richards would still have taken me in and been very Good to a Stine a rejoins her Crest fallen Host a i have not been of much service to Yon. After ally have i a Cissy is conscience stricken. It would have puzzled him to give a reason for his assertion. A you think she has not a asks Cecil still doubtfully though longing to feel As convinced on the subject As he apparently is. Some Hope revives within Lier As she remembers that the servants Iii her House Are As ignorant of their Way to the Village As the servants in this. A i know it a returns or. Craven with considerable Force a she would of course wait until the morning. Why. It would be inhuman actually unsafe i think to Send any one abroad on such a night As a and Mamma is not inhuman a murmurs Cecil with a slight smile staring thoughtfully into the glowing coals beneath her. Over the Chimney piece is a Large picture finely painted. It represents an elderly lady with a charming face with Brown hair arranged in Little curls on either Cheek a handsome bust generously displayed a Waist Well under Lier Aries and a Small foot protruding from beneath the Satin gown that partly covers her. It is the foot that attracts Cecil s attention. It is very Small and Clad in Black velvet. She laughs. A i Hope you Are not making merry Over my elderly relative a says . Severely. Far be it from me she is much too uncomfortably dignified to excite mirth in any one. I was Only thinking of that old adage a it is ill waiting for dead menus shoes a and wondering whether it is ask ill to wait fora dead woman a because i Ani sure i am at this moment wearing your a she hesitates. A great grandmother a he prompts. A great grandmothers slippers a concludes Cissy laughing again and looking Down at Lier velvet shoe the very fac simile of that worn by the dead and gone Grandam. Quot a what miraculously Small feet my great grandmother must have had a says or. Craven solemnly regarding her foot with interest. A Oil no these shoes Are quite Loose on me a she replies innocently. A i can see he remarks unwisely and regrets his speech a second later when to his Chagrin the pretty foot is hastily withdrawn. A silence follows and then miss Rivers As though the thought has just of pm red to her says gently a i must now bid you Good Naglit and go to airs. Richards she has promised me Tea at a but it is not nearly that yet. It wants quite a plaster to protests her Host in a somewhat injured tone. A Spray do not hurry yourself. Do you know a warning Lye a that from the moment you join mrs. Richards until you elect to go to cd she will spend the time telling you old tales about the family. I know it because i have been through it. Ami it is no joke. Every Story is thirty minutes Good not a second a How Nice i adore old stories a says miss Rivers sweetly. A you won t adore Liers there s not a bit of go in them not a murder or ghost or a suicide or anything Amus my from Start to finish. We Are wretched lot. You know when All is told a alluding apologetically to his an Cesto ids. A Don t let yourself Iii for it if you love 6you greatly relieve my mind a says Cissy. Quot i could t sleep Iii a House where a ghost a could no to you i should find even that poor excitement Welcome so dreary is my present existence. You can t think Quot a dejectedly a How slow find it Here with no . Your coining to night has been such a Relief up to this i have had to endure the major and though in a generally Eon Side red rather Good natured than nth Serwise he is much too much for any fellow lie was agent you see in my uncles time who never attended to anything and now before retiring from office thank goodness lie is re tiring he insisted on coining Down Lier with me to see Atter tilings and behave a civilly and harass the very lives out of Niv unfortunate a Why do you let him a reproachfully. A i Ani afraid to interfere Anil besides it does t matter much because he can t stay Long Ami i la make it up to them afterwards. Tile gout overtook him yesterday in a devoutly thankful that it came Down upon him heavily As i have been spared ins inane twaddle for a few hours at tie says politely Carei Uii suppressing the warmth he could willingly have thrown into his tone. A bored no indeed a but Here memory whispers in her ear. Lier expression changes Aud she glances involuntarily toward one of the w windows. A i could quite say i have enjoyed myself a sue says with a rallies pensive smile a if i were positive Mamma is not at this moment enduring agonies of fright on my she rises from her chair so does or. Craven from his and As though divining her thought he goes to the window opens Tho shutters and throwing up and dealers in Exchange. San Antonio s a i Kaas 8. Thornton pres. .1. W. Glass v. P Jas. P.
