That is what Bertie Gray, Lieutenant of II.
M. 8. ThuDderbolf, said to Reginald Ashe, a
rising specimen of the genus British artist.
"And what I want, my boy, is a successful
summer tour, a generous 'hanging committee'
next season, and a good position 'on the line.'"
"The thanks of a eratcful public, nnd the
O. C. B. of an appreciating sovereign," said
Bertie, raising his wineglass, as if to "propoge
a toast," as Mrs. Gamp has it.
"The recognition of genius by discerning
critics, and K. A. tacked on to my name," cried
"Artists don't rise to bo R. A. in a single

Both the young men laughed heartily.
"O for the days when George III was king !"
"O for the days of kind-hearted, generous Sir
Joshua !" said Reginald.
"Joshua what ?"
"Reynolds, of course."
Albert Gray and Reginald Ashe were fast and
dear friends, and were sitting on a beautiful
June evening in the chambers of the latter In
the Adelphi, sipping some very fair claret, and
Interchanging notes on their future prospects.
The first named, as has been said, was a lieu
tenant in the navy, and his age might be about
thirty. lie wsi rather strongly built, tawny
haired, blue eyed, and brown complexionod.
Reginald Ashe was, perhaps, three years his
junior, of a lighter build than his friend, tall,
elegant, with cigar cut features, dark liquid
hazel eyes with long black lashes, and ink black
eilky moustache and hair.
"Fill your glass, dear old boy, and we'll drink
to our mutual good lack. Here's to you, my
"And to you, my Pythias!" returned the sailor.
And the young men glanced at each other with
out saying more, after the fashion of us phleg
matic Englishmen. But there was a world of
sincere affection in the glance, brief as it was;
and the heart of each beat a little more rapidly
as they grasped hands.
"Ileigho!'' said Bertie, "it's almost time to be
afloat again. Leave's up on Tuesday."
"I shall be off for my summer tour when
you're gone, Bertie there 11 be nothing to keep
me in town then."
"But your other friends"
"Other friends ? Obah! I don't care about
the world's ordinary friendship. A man asks
you to dinner with him at his club twice in the
season if you are prosperous, and cuts you In
the street if you wear a shabby coat. That's the
friendship (it is a libl on the name) of nine fel
lows out of ten. No, no, Bertie; I hold the
doctrine, that in friendship as in love one should
Buflice. I'll own no divided allegiance."
Bertie looked gratified, but said nothing.
"And so," continued Reginald, "when the
Thunderbolt weighs anchor, I'm off to Wales,
or some other picturesque locality. Down,
Brutus, down!" he said to a large white cat which
had jumped on bis knee, and was endeavoring
to make a plaything of his meerschaum.
"How you spoil that cat, Reggie!"
"Got a passion for cats shall put him in a
picture some day, 'with a hey diddle diddle, the
cat and the fiddle,' etc. I wonder Landseer
never took the nursery rhyme for a subject
there's the little dog, and the cow."
"Landseer is not great at cows.
"He's great at everything, sir."
"Well, as you please. What's to be your own
subject for next season?"
"The meeting: of Henry VIII and Anne Bo
leyn." "O, O! we aim at being historical in style; we
are ambitious, it seems!"
"Yes, we are."
'I mean to Swell out your arare, and make
"Much obliged, I'm sure."
"O, he wasn't so very bloated when he met
Anne first," laughed Reginald. "History often

"And he had a noble presence, and by some
was thought a model of manly beauty."

"I shall make a Sir Thomas Wyatt of myself."
"Ah, you do look sweet and sentimental with
those lustrous dark eyes."
"Not a bit of it."
"But now comes the dilemma. I can't find a

"Misericorde! Eamlet with the Prince ot
Denmark omitted !"
"Just so. I fear I shall have to abandon the
enbject and choose another."
"Wouldn't Leila Davenant do?" asked Bertie,
with just the suspicion of a blush coloring his
"Leila Davenant! AnneBoleyn didn't squint."
"Neither does Miss Davenant!" cried Bertie
Reginald Ashe looked at him curiously.
"O, the land lies in that direction, does it?"
"Nonsense, Reggie! as if I shouldn't have told
you if it did! What secrets have I from you,
dear old. fellow?"
Reginald was touched.
"Well, you'll tell me when you lose your

'To be sure I will."
"Is it a mutual bargain?"
"Shake hand) on It,. then."
"I shall see you once more before I sail,
Reggie; I ehall look in on Saturday. I go to
Portsmouth on Monday. You'll give me a fare
well supper, won't you?"
"Yes, yes, of course," said the other, In a
voice not quite steady, and with something very
like dew in his eyes.
"Good-bye then, dear old fellaw I" And with
a cordial grasp of both hands that was next
door to a positive embrace, these two young
men, who did not consider it at all effeminate
to feel and show affection for each other,
"Ah," sighed Reginald, when the door had
closed behind his friend, "how I shall miss
him 1 Well, he'll be back next year. Mean
while I must work. And now to find a model
for mv Anne."
Early in July Reginald Ashe was comfortably
established In very pretty apartments in the cot
tage of a highly respectable widow, in one of
the most picturesque localities of North Wales.
Here he set to work in earnest on bis "great
picture," as with all the fondness of a young
artist Ue termed the work which he hoped would
make him famous the ensuing spring. He had
bo far adduced with the painting that it was
impossible v put off any longer the sketching
in of the principal figure; and he resolved, since
be could una n model to his taste, to trust to
his creative Uny alone for the Dortral
ture of thfc lovely and ill-fated
Anne. Reginald had greatly flattered hia
landlady's vanity b introducing her to his
canvas in the quality ( one 0f tt,e attendants
on Katberlne ot Arragou and the consequence
was that the worthy souly intense interest

der, smiled at this, and said,

my mountain rambles; and if sot 1 must trust to
The day was splendid, althongh as Intensely
hot as It usually Is la the month of July. A
blue beat mist overhung the purple hill tops,
and seemed, like the veil of beauty, to wish to
hide their glories from the heather land below.
A wide expanse of moor, growing crimson with
the heath blooms, which were already beginning
to burst into blossom, was dotted here and
there with flocks of the diminutive mountain
sheep, and herds of shaggy black and dun
cattle, at once su'len, picturesque, and intract
able. The wide-spread panorama was inter
sected in all directions by winding mountain
streams, which, although running very low on
account of the extreme heat of the weather, yet
retained suOlclcnt water in their channels to
supply the browsing flocks and herds, and to
add greatly to the beauty of the wild and ex
quisite picture. The sun, not yet fully risen,
hung a great globe of gold over the few scat
tered firs wbicn crowned some of the hill-tops,
and, dispersing the mists as he ascended, gave
promise of a uiagnlficeut day.
The young artist, dashing the hair lrom his
brow, stood gazing on the lovely scene with a
rapt intensity of naze aid thought, only knowa
to those bard brain and hand toilers of the great
Babylon, to whom it is rarely given to snatch a
few hours from the turmoil of city existence,
and commune with nature in her own solitudes.
He looked back at the little rose-bowered cot
tage, which be bad left a mile behind him, and
almost felt that he could be content to resign
forever the golden dream of ambition, and, with
the friend of his heart and the wife of his bosom
for companions, pass in this sweet and solitary
spot a tranquil, if an unambitious existence.
But a moment's re lection awoke him from the
dream, and recalled his wandering imagination
to the realities of life.
"I must not lose the fine effects of those early
mountain mists," he murmured to himself. "To
work, O Utopian Alnascbar ! Dreams of the
Unattainable balance no banker's book. Ah,
well !" Then choosing a favorable situation, he
began the outline of a sketch of sunrise on the
The artist's heart was in the work, and it grew
under his loving fingers. It was already half
colored, when a soft yet unmistakable expres
sion of surprise caused him to drop his brush
and look hastily round.
A few yards behind him stood a young lady.
She was of a dazzling fair complexion, just in
the slightest degree tinged by sun brown, and
was rather tall of figure than otherwise. Her
eyes were large, liquid, and of a melting tender
ness, their color blue. Her small queenly head,
covered with sunny chestnut braids, was grace
fully set on a slender white neck. Her smile
was of surpassing beauty it lit np her whole
face and her bands and feet were exceedingly
small and beautifully proportioned.
This fair girl, who was apparently about twenty
years of age, wore a plain white dress, with a
tartan scarf and sash, and a white straw hat
simply trimmed with purple and white heath
blossoms. She might have passed for Ellen in
the Lady of the Lake.
"O dear, I am sure I beg your pardon!" said
"Anne Boleyn, by Jove!" thought the gentle
man; but he said as he glanced at the sketch
book she held in her hand "Nay, I beg yours,
if, as I guest, I have occupied the place from
which you intended to sketch '
les no mat is u, pray ao not move.
as she saw Reginald Ashe begin putting to
gether his palette and brushes. "Mine Is no
sketch, it is merely a scratch. I was never
taught, in fact, this is my lirst attempt.
But Reginald had risen.
"O, do pray finish your painting," 6ald the
young girl. "I shall be so distressed!" Andshe
really looKea so.; ".May l glance at it she
"U yes, I Bhau oe most nappy," said the
yeung man, looking at her with au artist 8 eye.
"Beautiful!" cried she.
"Beautiful indeed!" echoed he. But the lady
meant the sketch, and the artist meant the
taste in common, how quickly they manage to
make mends over it. .Bring two enthusiastic
musicians, painters, or politicians together for
the first time, and in half an hour they will be

their lives. It is no wonder, then, that the ac
quaintanceship progresses rapidly, when on the
one Bide there is an intelligent and beautiful
girl, and on the other a handsome and clever
young man of fascinating manners.
Reginald round mraseu explaining ana Bug'
eestinir to the young girl, as if he bad been
engaged to teacn ner at a nan guinea a lesson.
He ran through the gamut of "outline," "tone."
"coloring," and "chlaro oscuro, with gno pro
ficiency. Nor did hia fair pupil appear by any
means loth to learn. it must Da said in

daughter) was speaking to a stranger without
an Introduction, it is true; but then a mutual
love for art drew them together, and the young
lady spoke and acted in every way as only a
true gentlewoman can ao.
Meanwhile Having nnisnea nis ownsketcn, tne
artist was examining that of Miss Wrasse, and
pointing out to her in what respects It was den
cient. It was a crude affair, as might have been
expected from an untaught hand; but rude as It
was it nevertheless bore evidences within it ot
true artistic instincts. Lilian was pleased with
the artist's approbation of what was good in her
sketch, tempered as it was by honest censure of
that which was Dad.
"I like to be told my faults," she said. "Papa
says my drawing is perfection; but 1 know, I
feel it is not. O, thank you for telling me."
Reginald was amm.ed yet pleased. How dii-
ferent was this unsophisticated girl from his fair
London acquaintances, with whom, to question
the perfection of anything they did, was to put
oneself under the ban of perpetual exile from
circles polite. '
'Nobody ever taught me, yon Bee," Bald
Lilian; "O, I should like to have a master."
"And I should like to be he," thought Re;
inald. But he did not say so. He knew tue
proprieties. Yet he was more than half in love
with this charming Welsh maid already. A
pang shot through his heart as he reflected that
this chance meeting would prooaoiy ue tne iat,
since be knew not who the young lady was.
Did a similar reflection possibly cross Lilian's
mind f It is not improbable.
The sun had by this time risen high in the
heavens, and Miss Wrasse hastily prepared to
turn her footsteps homewards.
"I am so much obliged to yeu for your hints,"
he said, adiusting her red plaid scarf: "I shall
be sure to profit by them."
"O, do not thank me," he said, with a glow
on bis Handsome face. "It has been such
pleasure." Then, unable to resist the tempta
tion, he added, "May I not hope we shall

A few yards behind the young girl, and fol

have spoken. Although this species are of no

cattle, they are often obstinate and vicious to a

getting away from them without either loss of
life or damage to limb. The spiteful little brute
was probably attracted by the red portion of

and as he followed bcr he stopped a few mo

over the prospect of the immolation of a victim

Boon, for they had barely reached the bushes
when their vicious little enemy was upon them.
Now the bushes, seven in number, formed a
clump, round which it was impossible, so long

moved, the highly-wrought nerves of the young
girl gave way and she fainted. The artist laid
her gently and tenderly down on the heather,
and proceeded to fill bis cap with water at one
of the many rivulets which meandered over the
moor. This done, he mixed with it a small por
tion of brandy from his luncheon flask, and
bathed the temples and hands of the insensible
girl. Whilst he was bo doing he caught sight of
two peasants Durning tun at no great distance,
and by loud aud continued shouts attracted their
attention, when they left their peat heaps and
came towards him.
'Lord have mercv on us! said one of them in
Welsh (of which the artist fortunately under

her hand to Reginald, "how much I owe you, sir!
I should have lost my life but for you."
She could say no more; and the artist, not at
all desirous of being thanked, inquired if she
thought she was strong enough, with his assist
ance, to reach the rectory.
"O yes," said she; "I feel quite strong now."
She was nevertheless compelled to lean pretty
heavily on the young man s arm; and perhaps
that slow walk and silent tete-a-tete did a good
deal to precipitate matters. Who knows ?

Lilian Wrasse did not need mucu entreaty

Anne Boleyn; and such good use did the painter
make of his time, that when the finishing touch
had been given to the great picture, the finishing
touch had also been given to the destiny of two
The "Meeting of Henry VIII with Anne Bo-
leyn ' created a "sensation" at the Royal Aca
demy next season, and Reginald Ashe always
remembered with pleasure that his search of a

cause of his finding a wife.
Early in the spring the l nunderooit arrived at
