A DRAWING BOOM COMEDY.
Mr. Thomas Hilbury is tlio junior
prtner in tlio great firm of lJlllmry,
ISIacktlioi'iio & Co., tra morcliants, of
Calcutta ami Lontlon. Tho senior
partiRT is Mr. Joscjili Hilbury his
father, who has a very nice house at
Kcw, ami until a year or two ago there
was a third member of the firm in tho
person of Thomas' undo, Mr. Habbing
ton Ulaekthoine, t'io Calcutta repre
sentative of tho establishment. JJut
unfortunately, Mr. Hlackthorne, liko
many Knglishmen who live in India,
drank so much Scotch whiskey and
Ha9s' ale, and ato too much curry and
too many "Bombay ducks ;" tho re
sult beinjr that at tho ago of 55 his
liver declined to bear tho strain put
upon it, and collapsed, leaving its own
er so weak and ill that he had barely
time ero ho died to telegraph to his
partners iu England a brief notico of
his impending fate. This alarming
despatch arrived at a particularly in
opportune moment. Mr. Thomas IJil
bury had on the day previous married
a very charming young lady, Lydia
Lanples by name, and tho intelligence
of ins unclo's sad condition necessitat
ed that tho newly-mado husband
who, by the way, had only become ac
quainted with his brido about six
weeks before marriage should with
out a moment's delay tako tho train
for Dover, cross to Calais, and thence
go by tho quickest route to Calcutta.
Tho affair was pressing. Mr. Hlack
thorno's death would certainly throw
tho business into confusion, and any
hesitation on tho part of tho English
partners might imperil the future of
"Go at once, my dear boy," wroto
Mr. Joseph Hilbury to his son, who
was in the Isle of Wight, "and send
jour wife to me. I will lake care of
her, and see her settled in your new
homo at Itichmond. I would go my
self, but my gout won't allow me.
And above all things, take care of
There was no help for it. Mr. Hil
bury, Jr., felt that ho must go ; so go
lie did, putting the best face on the
matter, and bidding a very long and
tender good-byo to his poor littlo wife.
Ho escorted her across to Ponrtsmouth,
put her in a London train, kissed her,
saw her off, and then took tho next
train for Dover.
She settled down in her now home
on Richmond Hill ; and ho for many
months afterward worked hard at his
desk in Calcutta, arranging tho world
ly affairs of his dead uncle, and from
time to time sending homo reports of
his progress, and lovo letters to Lydia.
Two years, in fact, elapsed ero he
was able to return to England ; and
then ho returned, as ho had goiio out,
at a moment's notico. Unfortunato
circumstances suddenly left him free ;
anil unwilling to loso a day, ho took
tho first homeward-bound steamer.
which, so it happened, was also taking
to Itichmond a letter written a few
days earlier, in which Mr. Bilbury,
among other matters, regretted to his
wife that the pressure of business
would not leave him at liberty for at
least a month.
Ho traveled home without adventure.
landed in duo course at Dover, arrived
in London late at night, and, without
having written a won! of warnini' to
Lydia, hurried on next morning to
Richmond Hill. Why ho did not
write or telegraph wo cannot say; per
haps he thought his sudden appear
ance would agreeably surnrise his
wife ; or perhaps ho was too excited
to bo able to think at all. But in anv
case, ho neither wroto nor telegraphed
i niugiu uiu oi preparation.
it was a lino sunny morning in sum
mer; Mr. Thomas Bilbury lias scarce
ly Been his new home, which ho had
taken in a hurry immediately before
his wedding ; and ho was walking
eagerly up tho short carriago drive
leading to the houso when, happening
to cast his gaze toward the upper win
dows, he caught sight of a lair, white
draped figure which was watering
some flowering plants that stood in a
row on tho sill. He at onco recogniz
ed tho figuro as that of his wife, and
was about to utter a cry of salutation
when ho suddenly became conscious
that she did not recognize him, for
with graceful modesty she withdrew
from tho window and disappeared as
soon as sho becamo conscious that be
was watching her. An idea struck
him. It was a foolish but not wholly
unnatural one. Ho would pretend to
bo some ono else a friend, say, of her
husband's, and would ask to seo her
as such. Of course sho would at onco
recognizo his voice ; but then tho sur
prise, and tho consequent pleasure,
would bo more complete if he deferred
them. He knocked, therefore, at tho
door, and to tho servant who appeared
announced that ho had just returned
from India and desired to seo Mrs.
Bilbury. Ho gavo no name, but lie
was admitted and shown into tho
drawing-room, where, iu some pertur
bation of mind, bo awaited the advent
of tho wifo from whom ho had been so
long and cruelly separated.
"I suppose that sho will know me,''
ho reflected, as ho stood with his back
to tho wiutlow ; "but it is true- that I
have grown a tolerably big beard
sinco I went away, and that I havo
becomo considerably tanned. How-

his wife. "Yes ; I can readily believe
