Ireadful red-haired engineer, as you
politely call Arthur Ilivcrs, is a very

"I call him a beast, !" said Estolle,
with exceeding frankness.
"Now, P.stelle, said Alary sharply,
"I won't havo you pick up bad words
from mv young brothers, and I won't
havo you speak rudely ot my inends. '
'Do you like him ?" inquired her
companion, stepping iorword, so as to
get a good look at her face.
"Certainly," replied Mary, not tho

scrutiny of tho dark eyes.

lifo charmingly novel; sho particularly
liked tho admiration accorded to her
beauty and vivacity, and sho took at

of her mother's intelligent tact am'
thoughtl uincss.
Tho two girls liaa walked on another
hundred vanls or so without speaking,
when Mary was roused from her reflec

little grimaco and shrug of tho shoul

"How no yon do, Mary T Now do

"Quito right, too," ho returned, with

to get a good view of her tace, "smco

Estello allowed herself to be grad-
ally drawn into conversation, and
was getting quito interested in compar
ing notes with him about tho Hivcrs,
when an amused, approving littlo nod
and smilo from Mary brought tho color
to her face. Sho was a complcto child
iu many respects, and her voxation at
finding herself blushing was so groat
that tho tears started to her eyes.
Hivcrs wondered what on earth had
happened; but if his manners wero
abrupt, his good feeling was rarely at
iault, and he showed tact now.
"I brought home no end of memen
toes, ho continued, quietly, "and
among them somo tlowera from Mcn-
tjne roots I mean which I planted
iu tho garden hero for Mrs. Charles
worth. Would you like to seo them ?"
Estello sprang up, ready to go any
whero rather than contiuuo to sit with
her faco in full view of all tho players.
She was suro overy ono must bo looking
at her. llut in a very fow minutes,
thanks to Kivers tactics, sho was her
self again, and inwardly determined to
pav alary out.
This littlo episode had cured her of
her dishko to tho young engineer, and
before tho evening was over her feel
ings had undergoiio a further revulsion.
Sho and Mary were asked, with some
of tho other guests, to stay to tho 8
o'clock supper at .Mrs. Charlesworth's,
and later on there was a general vote
tor music. Ivitello was known to have
a beautiful voice, but sho was exceed
ugly nei vous, and could not bo pro
vailed upon to sing until Eva suggested
that she should bo supported by a vio
lin obligato.
That would rrivo mo courage, Es
tello admitted, "and 1 know tins song

"Oh I my fiddlo and 1 are at homo
in this drawing room," said Hivcrs,
coming up quickly ami drawing a caso
irom under a low settee.
Eslello regarded himdoubtfullv.mak

singing at once if his playing did not
please her. She need not have, been
alarmed, lie was a thorough imiHiciaii,
and soon sho confessed to herself that

Hal Armitago turned to Eva Charles-
worth with a significant chuckle.
Uur good Arthur is smitten, ho
said "settled and dono for."
Eva followed tho direction of his
eyes and appraised Estclle critically.
"I hopo it may bo so," sho answered
