Roland's face glowed with euthusi
asm, but Kathleen was still silent, lie
mistook this for maiden shyness, and
continued to plead lor her promise.
x'resently, raising her lovely oyos to
his lace, she said :
"I really don t know what to say,
uoland. You have taken mo by sur

A few weeks 1 To a man desperately
in love this was intolerable, and Roland
felt a sudden chill. If Kathleen loved
him, whv not tell him so at oncet But
ho conquered his impatience, and pro
nnsed to wait for her answer until the
night before his departure from Castlo
Dermott for London, which would bo
in about ten days. Could he havo seen
beneath Kathleen s winning mauners
into her cold heart and calculating dis
position, ho would never havo loved
her, but ho took her outward beauty
and grace as a sign that she must be
true-hearted and loving, and ho had
given her all tho devotion of his noble,
chivalrous nature.
"I am in a horrid quandary," thought
Kathleen to herself, lying awake rest

tired to rest ; "I am twenty-two now,
and have sent away no end of lovers

how to act
Lord Carwardino was a great county
magnate, isbuiously rich, a great far
liaracntary leader, forty years of age,
but haudsomo and unmarried. His in
fluence had procured Roland tho lucra
two oecrotary s post ho was soon to fill,
and tho secret of Kathleen's hesitation
was that nt ono or two dinners nnd
balls thoy had all attended nt his man

no had been very attentive to her not
enough to cause remark, but quite sufli
ciont to raiso ambitious hopes and
wishes in her breast.
inero was 10 uo a largo ball held in
the county hall tho following week, in
nid of tho Irish Distress Fund. Lord
Carwardino would bo present, and
Kathleen thought :
"I shall see then whether he thinks
anything seriously or not ; if ho dues I
shall still be freehand If not, then 1
may as well accept Roland. I dure say
no will succeed as ho says, though it
will bo horrid to wait for years. I
should bo quite old before lie could
give mo halt bo good a position as
would bo mino at onco if Lord Carwar
dino would only propose. It is terribly
perploxicg, but then I might bo worso

had a sweetheart in her life, and never

hope and bliss will go with mo if you
will only givo mo your promise.
"1 cannot, indeed 1 cannot, JUr. liar-
grove, interrupted Katniccn in great
agitation, dreading lest Lord Carwar
dine, whoso name was on her card for
tho next dance, should appear and 111
tcrrupt their tete-a-tete. "Pray, do not
ask mo again. 1 1 do not lovo you
I can novcr marry you.
Shocked and startled by tho decision
of her tone, which was uiinuuakable,
Roland released her hand and said in a
voico hoarse with grief and disappoint'
"Jliss JMaedermott, I cannot suo
twice: is that your final answer!
For one instant Kathleen hesitated.
What if, after all, Lord Carwardino's
attentions were only friendly. But no,
sho could not bear the thought, sho
must win tho prize
"1 am sorry it is tho only answer 1
can givo you. 1 hopo you will bo

"Hush, hush, Kathleen ; such words
from you are a mockery. Good-bvo
may you never know a like grief to
that you havo caused me."
And hastily wringing her hand
Roland left her standing there, forget
ting in his desperate grief the common
politeness which would havo caused
him to tako her back to tho ball room.
But Kathleen willingly forgavo his
want of gallautry in the relief sho felt
at his departure, and ten minutes hence
she was waltzing with Lord Uarwar
dine, gay and sparkling as ever, with
out a single regretful thought for tho
man who had just gone from her pres
ence, crushed and broken-hearted.
Meanwhile, Roland had hastened
home, and, packing a small portmnn
teau, wroto a hurried note to the
Colonel, who had long siuco retired,
and was leaving tho house when he
noticed a light 111 the little room off the
library where Maggie and Kathleen

Longstrcct's attention and prevent him
from moving against Pope, especially
while McDowell was out of support of
both Popo and Porter. Porter all that

what was taking placo in front of
Pope, though ho kept the former well
