'Oo into society! Of course he won't, yet. Why,

isn t two since the lads were drowned in the Dike, a
luckt" chance for him.'
t hat s no matter. Mr. Hugh Carton is not a near
relative. Where they fished hi in up from no one can
tell. And then he has an invalid sister.'
'To whom he is very good.'
1 ins was from an elderly bachelor who was grim and
testy, but whose testiness no one minded much. He
took snutt as ho said; he also stuck his cane into the
carpet savagely, as though that had been the speaker,
and wanted putting down.
■ And I should like to know what man, worthy of the
name, wouldn t be good to an invalid sister?' persisted
' Her brother s dancing attendance on a bevv of mu
sic m:td young ladies, and screaming up to B fiat,' said
Mr. Crane, pulling a face. ' Well, I don't pretend to be
musical, and I have already been introduced to Mr. Car
ton. I should say that he is not musical either. Sorry
to disappoint you.'
The three Misses Grafton looked at each other and
smiled. Jhe Parish of Dykewood was eminently amu
sical parish. It was about to take part in a grand ama
teur concert, to which everybody from miles around was
expected to come, and its great desideratum had long
been a good tenor. Baritones there were in plenty, and
these bad to be pressed into tenor service; but they
were thin, for the most part, like vin ordinaire; and be
sides, they could not take the high notes. Now, a real
tenor, after the fashion of Mario or Sims Ifeeves, was the
thing wanted; therefore, from Mr. Hugh Carton's some
what thin brown cheeks, moustaches, long hair, and
general foreign appearance, it had been suggested as not
impossible that he might supply the deficiency.
'At any rate,' said Miss Grafton, we will not take him
at your valuation, Mr. Crane.'
'No one expects you to do so young ladies,' retorted
Mr. Crane. ' The proof of the pidding—but I forgot,
that's vulgar. Listen, however, to an old fogie. I ven
ture to predict—nay, I would lay a small wager that the
concourse of you —Graftons, Hetheringtons, Wilsons,
every one—dont extract five consecutive words from
this taciturn gentleman. I could not, and I talked about
top dressing, and the crops, and the game laws—all that
would naturally interest a country gentleman. I don't
believe myself that he knows what it it* he has come into.
The only time I succeeded in attracting his attention
for a moment, was when I spoke of that poor Mrs. Wynne,
who lives over there, you know, almost inside his
park. I suppose it is because she is a cripple, like his
'Aye,' said Mr. Crane, 'laugh if you will, ladies. I
dare say you think a crusty old fellow like me wouldn't
be very likely to entertain this new lion; but vou mav
be mistaken. ' W by, lie's thirty-five if he's a day, and
the gray hairs are coming.'
'His voice will be in its prime, Mr. Crane,' said the
' His voice! his voice!' exclaimed Mr. Crane; 'as if a
human being was nothing but a mechanical contrivance
of' emitting sound. And' he added, softly, ' the man has
lie got up to go as lie spoke, ard the girls shook hands
with him good humoredly enough, for he was not so sour
as he seerued, and in spite of his caustic speeches, he was
rather a favorite among them.
Meantime tho object of these remarks was walking
about the lawn of Dyke wood Park with a cigar in his
mouth; a tall muscular man. with rather a worn brown
face, and eyes that would have struck a stranger as hav
ing a pitiful, hunted look in them at times. "When his
possession became a reality to him, instead of appearing
like a dream, from which he was afraid every moment
of awaking, this wore oft; but at present ho could bard
ly believe that fortune, adverse to him from childhood,
had suddenly turned upon him her pleasant smiles.
There were gardeners at work in the shrubberies and
among the flower beds; and as his eye fell upon them,
Mr. Carton stood still with a sudden wonder at the
thought that these men wore his servants, and would
look to him for payment. He shaded his eyes with his
hand, and looked out into the west, where the sky was
one blaze of gold and red. The light fell on hill and
dale in fitful gleams; it touched the tree-tops, and pick
ed out bits here and there of the winding river to make
it glisten like silver. The scene grew dim before- Mr.
Carton's eyes. He saw instead a miserable lodging un
der'a foreign sky, where a gaunt man cowered at night
over the stove, whose supply was scanty. He saw this
man rising up every morning, sometimes hopeful, to be
beaten back again from time to time, till hope was al
most dead within him; then he saw this same man, but
changed a little, for better days had begun, and his ge
nius was making his way tardily; a newspaper was in his
hand, and one finger rested on an advertisement. Hiß
breath came in painful gasps, his face grew gradually
Mr. Carton started, for one of tho workmen stood be
fore him. touching his hat, and asking instructions re
specting certain trees which he thought should be cut
down to improve the view. Mr. Carton could have
laughed aloud at the incongruity of the thing, but he
restrained himself, and gave his orders quietly.
' I might be the country squire in a farce,' he said to
himself; ' I feel like playing at being a rich man. Pleas
ant play, though '. Ah, lam thankful itdidn'tcome too
He flung down his cigar and walked quickly toward
tho house. He passed the wide stone steps, which look
ed so imposing, pushing open a French window, and en
teved a small drawing room, at the end of which was a
conservatory. A "young girl lay on a couch near this
window, young, but with few of the marks of youth.
There'was not the faintest rose tint in the cheeks, from
which suffering had driven the healthy hlood ; the hands
that she stretched out to him were fearfully thin, and
the large eyes which filled with tender light when they
saw him. seemed too largefor the wasted features. Yet
in a certain way she was beautiful Hugh Carton knelt
down beside the couch, and put his arm under her head
'ls it pleasant, sister?' he said. 'Are you here
among the birds and the flowers, or do you long after
bluer skies ?'
'No H ugh,' replied the girl; ' there was trouble under
'Ah, hut it was growing lighter,' said Hugh.
'I know it was,' said the gi'l; 'but what of that?—
They should have appreciated you before; they shall
not have you now to make a slave of I'm glad for
your sake a thousand times more than my own. It seems
too good to be true.'
'lt does, indeed,' said Hugh, smilingly" 'I am ready
to warn my own men that sometimes I may not be able
to pay them for their work. lam only thankful, that all
this came when it did.'
' lhats for my sake,' said the girl, clasping his neck

• Ah, but poverty would have been over then,' said
Lthel, and it you had come to England, as he said vou

always recognize talent.'
' Vou forgot that you are praising yourself,' said Hugh.
' Are not we English? But I could not have come to
England in that way, Ethel.'
' l ou might have changed your name,' said Ethel.
'Never,' said Hugh, curtly.
'You prefer slaving your best years away forme,'
continued Ethel. • I wonder liow many brothers there
are in the world like mine.'
•And J wonder how many sisters are as patient and
uncomplaining as nfine,' retorted Hugh. •We won't

wished to sit in the place which these two poor lads
should have filled successively before me. 1 never tbo't

advertisement for the next ot kin, there was pity in the
shock as well as—but never mind.'
' No, said Ethel, ' let it rest. I have had visitors again,
Hugh. That kind old Mrs. Wynne came with her
daughter. It was very good of the old lady, for though
she is not gxacliy a cripple, like I am, it is difficult for
her to get about.'
' VV hy do they always como when I'm from home?'
said Mr. Carton, and a shade passed over his face. 'lt
looks as it there was something ogreish about me, Ethel.'
'So there is,' replied Ethel. ' You are S3 silent and
stern-looking, like a brigand. You never open your lips
to any one but me. Butyou must call upon Mrs Wynue
and little Bertie—they ure your tenants, you know.
Fancy your boasting tenants! Will you have a rent
day, Hugh, and a grand least in the park, and speeches?
or will you be hard, griping, and oppress everybody ?
See there! What's that corning up the Avenue ? A car
riageful of ladies to call upon me, and a—what a curi

laws the other day, said Hugh, laughing; - as if I knew
anything about game-laws. I can't, stand this, Ethel.
Good bj e !'
' Indeed, no, sir,' said Ethel, quickly, and she caught
his arm and held him fast. '\ ou never did leqve rreto
bear the brunt of anything yet, and 3*ou shall not begin
now. Besides, consider that you'll have to return all
these calls, so stay and break the ice.'
Hugh Carton was a very singular gentleman indeed.
Dykewood raised his eyebrows and didn't know what
to think about him. As to his being an acquisition to
the neighborhood, that seemed very dubious indeed.—
Dykewood had called upon the Cartons, and Mr. Car
ton had returned the calls. His sister won golden opin
ions from all ; but as for Hugh, he sat for the most part
in his corner staring at the landscape with absent eyes,
or pulling his long black moustache over his mouth, as if
he wanted to Hide a smile. Dykewood invited him to
an evening party, to which Mr. Carton went, after a
strong argument over the matter with his sister; and
the musical 3-oung ladies were more puzzled than ever.
Miss Grafton moved toward Mr. Carton's corner.
This nonsensicle heathen has been accusing you of
his own want of taste, Mr. Carton,' she said. 'l'm sure
it's a libel. lam quite sure that you must at least like
Hugh stammered out that he 'didn't exactly know,'
and the young lady's face feli.
1 We did so hope that you would join the choir/ con
tinued Mi.-s Grafton 4 \Y e want a tenor voice dreadful
ly, and you look as if you had one.'
'The choir!' repeated Mr Carton, reflectively.
4 Yes, our Dykewood choir,' said Miss Grafton. 4 You
heard us on Sunday. But really a good tenor would be
such an improvement. I am sure you have a singing
face it you would only try. People very often don't
know their capabilities until they begin.'
There was a very curious twitching about Mr. Gar
ton's lips as he listened to this: The speaker did not
notice it, but little Bertie Wynne did, and wondered.—
He raised his eyes to Miss Grafton's face, and said very
quietly, 4 You may be right, I suppose I am not too old
He was smiling outright now, and a chorus of eager
negatives of such a supposition broke upon him.
4 And then, we arc going to have an amateur concert,'
said Miss Grafton; and we should IKJ so glad of your
help, at Dykehambury, you know.'
4 Ah !' said Mr. Carton. His face grew a shade paler,
and he stretched out one hand in an aimless sort of fash
ion, as though searching for something. The gesture
was peculiar; these people could not kuow how sudden
ly the}' had touched a chord in the weary, struggling
past of his, and drawn forth the old instinctive move

his sister's couch toward him and feel that there was a
Mr. Carton walked home that night with little Wynne,
which gave rise to many expressions of discontent,
fortunately never destined to reach his ears. Bertie's
servant kept a decorous distance, but there was no
laughter or funny speeches now. Hugh had grown grave
in the moonlight; so grave, indeed, and absent, that be
would have forgotten to wish his charge good njght if
she had not spoken the words fiflst; and then he remem
bered, and his face grew red as he spoke the parting
The last words which Mr. Carton said to his sister
that night must have been very comical, to judge by the
amusement the}' created. She looked up at him with
mischief sparkling in her large eyes; and twisting the
corners of the mouth, about which pain had drawn many
lines, she said, simply, 4 Sing for them, dear Hugh—do.'
4 So you have given him up" said Mr. Crane, biting
4 0, of course,' replied Miss Grafton. 4 lt would never
do to take a beginner among tho Dykehambury people
—they would not like it.'
. 4 But you have asked him,' said Mr. Crane. 'Suppose
he says he will sing?—and there he comes. 3esides,
how do you know he is a beginner?'
1 I know how lie turned my music over,' said Miss
Grafton. 4 But that's nonsense. I should have liked a
tenor solo; but we must do without it.'
When Mr. Carton made bis unexpected entrance into
the committee room this question was still undecided.—
No one spoke to him beyond the ordinary greeting, and
that was cut rather short, for they were preoccupied,
and, in a musical light, he was evidently nobody. He
sat listening and caressing bis moustache, as usual, till
the debate grew warm, and then all at once the Oracle
stepped forward and broke the silence.
4 Ladies and gentlemen,' he said, 4 1 believe my voice
is a tenor. I will undertake this solo that you are in
