Thoy lived in a crcopor-covcred cot tnge, tieatlhig among vcrduru in tlio highly cultivated valloy of ono of tho Homo counties. There was n small dairy farm attached to it, upon which Lady Beat bestowed nil her leia uro hours and thereby managed to add no inconsiderable- aum to her income, which since her husband's death had been rather limited. With tho monoy dciivcd from this Boiirco she had been nblo to send her only son, Arthur, to Oxford Arthur, who was tho applo of her eye, tho only ono being for whom sho oared. She had given him a first class educa tion, and it had not been received on stony ground, for Arthur waa clever, and a hook worm, too much so for worldly purposes, since ho had indulged in study and contemplation until ho had become a dreamer. By tho time ho reach ed tho ago of 25, it had been declared by all the neighbors, and Lady Best's ctrclo generally, thnt Arthur would nev er do any good for himself in life; a hard verdict considering that he had not a single vlco and was handsome and manly looking. Not that his habits aud pursuits wero exaetly manly; fish ing was tho only sport in which lio had over been known to indulge, and ho spent his timo for tho most pait in wandering listlessly about tho valley, wearing clothes of a somewhat re3tliet io cut, which was particularly distaste ful to his rural neighbors, a slouching felt hat on his head, and a book gen erally poetry in his hand. Idolizing Arthur though sho did, it depressed Lady Best not a little to see him tako to an effemiuato do-nothinc tylo of life ; and since bIio had now wasted moro than a vear in this sort of dream, she began to despair ot peeing him embark in any of the professions for which sho honed his education would havo fitted him. What was sho to do how was sho to chance tho cur- ont of events sho did not know. 'Was ho in lovo T Had ho had a disappointment V her acquaintances asked her till sho was tired of answer ing. Tho question, however, at last suggested a remedy. Why should not a touch 01 tlio very disease trom which tho people thought ho was Buffering, bring about his cure 1 Girls ! Sho would surround him with girls; of course, whilo bIio had a duo regard for good looks, never for getting, that in her estimato nothing mado tho eyes glisten with so much pleasure as the sight of gold. So Lady Best gave a tennis party, and invited all tho beauty of the coun try, including two or threo heiresses, but beforo tho afternoon was half over Arthur had disappeared. IIo had wan dered down the valley away from "tho noise," as ho called tho musical laugh ter of the maidens, promising himself to return as soon as thoy should all bo gone. Lady JJest was disannointed, but not crushed; sho would try again, this timo in a quieter, but sho hoped a moro ef- lcciuai way. "Arthur was out so much she was at times very dull," sho told him; more over, sho wanted some assistance in ef fecting ono or two dairv reforms. Her eldest brother's daughter Hannah Mil ton aged 19, was she understood, a decidedly practical, energetic girl. Sho had not seen her since she was a ba by, but she would like to invito her on a long visit and mako her acquain tance. Had Arthur anv obiection V "No; nono whatever. Of courao his mother was perfectly free to do as sho liked." But would ho bo civil and kind to this unknown cousin when she came 1 "If she pleased him, ceitainlv: but. doubtless, sho would in no way inter fere with his pursuits." Not very encouraging if Lady Best had any serious intentions in referenco to Miss Hannah Milton, who wo will observe in parenthesis sho believed would sooner or later come into the. possession of at least a hundred thoiis- auu pounds. .Not a word of this did sho. however. utter to Arthur, but, without further discussion, wroto an affectionate letter to her niece, asking her to eomo and stay at tho cottage as loug as sho could enuure tuo irugality and smallness ot their impecunious life. Miss Hannah Milton answered bv return of post that sho should bo do- lighted to avail herself or her aunt b in- ,'itatioii, moro especially as her father was going abroad on business, and sho should bo her own mistress for tho noxt two months. Sho might bo ex pected to arrive, bag and baggage, at tho cottage on tho 5th of July. It was then the end of Juno. To thia announcement followed a post-script that alio hoped her dear aunt did not object to living animals, as of course sho could not leave hers all alono at Milton Hall during her own and her father's absence. Lady Best was delighted at tho suc cess of her letter, and wroto again to say that both bIio and Arthur wero par- iietiiany lonu oi pets. Arthur had reatl Miss Milton's letter, and merely said that ho hoped tho dogs, u tuoy wero uoirs, wero inorouc iuredi ho hated everything that was not per- icci. So, till tho 5th of Julv, the cottacro. whenever Arthur went out for it could not bo expected that ho should oniluro luss and clatter was convulsed with preparations for tho arrival of tho heiress niece and her retinue. A bed room waa turned into a boudoir for her pnvato use, and two bed rooms adjoin ing wero set asido for herself and maid. I ho coltago was one of thoso establish ments with countless email rooms, ca pable of taking in a far larger number of people than its exterior would lead you to imagine Hannah Milton's homo was in the North. It would be quito evening be foro alio would arrivo and Lady Best passed all tho day in a stato of feverish excitement, wandering about from room to room. She seemed to f ul that thero was a destiny at stake; whilo Arthur, tho individual who in all probability tho most concerned, was perfectly cool and collected and passed tlio hours in hia habitual placid enjoyment of a book, Tlio niystio shado of twilight was already creeping up tho valley when wheels wero heard npproaoliing tho cottage, aud Lady Best wont out into tho porch to receive her gutst. Fain would sho havo perauaded Arthur to accompany her, but ho preferred an arm chair by tho window. At last tho carriage is at tho door, and Hannah Milton, having sprung out, is clamorously kissing her aunt. Thero ia nothing lusthutlo or dreamy nbotit her. Sho had a broad, plain, honest open face, with iluo eyes and n largo mouth full of strong-looking wluto teeth not tho slightest prctcn b'ioii to beauty ,but you can ace at a glanco that Hannah Milton is a thoroughly good, kind, sincere woman. Her voico is very loud, but it haa tho ring of a true heart. It frightens Lady Best, however, aa sho thinks, "What will Arthur aay t Will ho run away from Hannah, or allow himself to bo sub dued by her ?" In tho earriago besido Hannah, half concealed by bird cig?9, a Persian cat nud three email dogs of different breeds, there is a girl the maid, of course. Tho doga and the cat spring out after Hannah aud tho footmnn takca tho bird oagea. Just.1 as tho unnoticed occupant of tho car-l riago is Btcpping out Hannah turns round. "Oh I 1 forgot; let mo introduce my dearest friend, Agatha Burghlcy. Of oourso you expected her ; bIio novcr leaves me, you know." Lady Best held out her hand in a welcomo to which her heart did not re spond; nor did speak, except to say: "And your maid, Ilannali V MissMilton burst out laughing. "That is a luxury in which wo don't indulge do we, Aggy ? Wo arrange our toil ets ourselves, and very effective they aro sometimes, ch ?" Lady Best looked again at tho com panion of whom sho had nover heard before. No, decidedly ; if sho had known of her existence sho would not havo asked Hannah to tho cottage. For Agatha was beautiful, of that refined spiritualized beauty about which poets ravo. For an indefinite period sho had in vited Hannah, and this companion, this Agatha, was sho also to be their daily associate for weeks 1 Tho meeting with Arthur, however, could not bo deferred, and Lady Best led tho way into tho drawing room. Ho was as cordial as it was in his nature- to be in his reception of his cousin, but when tho same formula of introduction with which Lady Best had been greeted was gone through, and Agatha, dragged forward by her ener getic friend, Btood beforo him, with tho palo gleam of tho rising moonlight on her face, ho started back as though he had seen a spectre, more in fear than admiration, as it seemed to his anxious watching mother. Thero was no time, however, for speculation as to what feeliugs had awakened in Arthur's breast, the ne cessities wero asserting themselves and Hannah in her blunt way declared herself to bo famishing. "A rapid toilet and dinner. Como on, Agatha, wo shall not keep Lady Best waiting long," and tho two girls went quickly up into tho rooms that had been prepared lor them. In less than a quarter of an hour they camo back, looking as spic-and-span as if thoy had made no long jour ney. It was very obvious that the ser vices of a maid wore unnecessary. Tho evening, however, was scarcely a merry one. Arthur was moro than usually silent and meditative, Agatha was very tired; she was not so robust as Hannah, who was tho only lively ono of the party, and chatted ceaselessly to Lady .Best, who, for onco in her life was not a good listener. Alt her at tention waa riveted on "that young person,'' as sho already, in her mind, designated the somowhat lackadaisical Agatha. Hannah was very full of the project ed dairy reforms. Sho loved every thing that gave her practical tenden cies lull vent; but Lady IJest was by no means as keen as she was. "Whilo they were reforminr; what would Arthur aud this beautiful Atralha bo doing ?" sho asked herself. "Oh, if Hannah would only turn her full atten tion on tho far moro important work of reforming Arthur I" Lady liest was, however, too much of a diplomatist to let her thoughts ap pear in worus; no, Bne must, act, ma noeuvre, watch. Of courso tho first thing next morn ing Hannah expressed a wish to go over tho farm, and accompanied by Agattia, sho and lady liest started on a tour ot inspection. Arthur had seen tho farm ad nauseam, ho said, and it did not ninuso him; ho preferred re maining in the houso till luncheon time. With tho explanations and discus sions which this farming pilgrimago entailed, Lady Best's spirits rose, and sho became thoroughly absorbed in her subject, rojoiciug that bIio had found so genial a companion and able co-worker aa Hannah, On a sudden, however, nor spirits leu to zero Agatha had disappeared. "Of courso sho had gono to join Arthur; it was preconcerted plan between them,'1 nnd tho mother, as sho thought of it, be camo perfectly miserable. No moro talk about gallons of milk, London market, homo consumption etc. Sho was tired, sho said, and if Hannah did not mind they would re turn to tho house. Thoy reached tho uoiiom oi mo garden, whioh lay in front of tho drawing room windows, just as Agatha, accompanied by Ar thur , strolled up tho terrace towai ds tho wood. 1 ho sight was past bearing; this, tlien, was to bo tlio end ot all her Iov nig caro ior Aruiur; no was to marry Hannahs penniless companion. Nor dm uannau s remain, as sho too, per celved them, tend to calm tho oxoited mother & fears. "Oh I they aro going to havo a little chat. I told Aggy tho sooner it was over tho better.'' "A chat with my son T lias this this Miss Burghlcy met Aithur bo lore. Ilaunnh laughed. "Did you not tho know T Oh 1 then I must not tell secrets of tho prison houso. But pray don't look so ruo fully, aunty mine. Tho secret is not ot a very dreadful na turo,' Lady Best was, however, by n means comforted by this intelligence. "Arthur had been carrying on witl this girl unknown to her, henco tho reason of Ida dejection ami hstlessnesa Of courso tho neighbors wero right; lovo was tho root of tho evil. And to think of tho'Bauuy littlo minx fore- iug heiself in hero under Ilaunnh f "V I . auspices, uu i it was too bad very 15, 1884, much too bad.

Tho pages of his tory are dotted all over with illustra tions of this truth, and its evidences nro renewed whenever the passing of events nfford occasion. Ono of these, witnessed by a party of tourists in Utah, is not without imporlcuco in its beatings upon a weighty and obscure problem which beforo long will con front tho peoplo's representative states men.

Tho woman a hatd-iaccd, thoroughly drilled Mor moness of 40 shook hands with her associates in conjugality, and dutifully turned to kiss tho children good-bye. Catching hold of tho nearest frowsy headed youngster, bIio had almost be stowed a salute upon its mouth when sho saw that it was not one of her own. It was hastily thrust aside,aud tho next one, proving to bo of the proper stripe, it was given a sounding and almost re vengeful kiss. Tho next two wero cur sorily inspected, and after somo hesi tation the woman, avoiding the glar ing oyes of her lord, passed them by with a disdainful push. Another of tho right breed was found, but tho threo following ones wero astonished by tho irato mother, balked unexpect edly in tho search for her own. Thus alternately culling and caressing sho made ner way through tho astonished brood until ono of the other wives, enraged at seeing her children sub jected to indignity, rushed forward to inflict chastisement on the offender. An impromptu freo fight followed, tho elder being compelled to seek aid from tho spectators beforo pcaco was restor ed War broke out again, however, and when tho woman finally broke for tho train sho was without traveling bag or umbrella, ono glovo was ripped nearly off, and her bonnet and hair indicated an advanced stage of demo ralization.
