for she is healthy, and only just past
her thirtieth birthday. It seems al
most a pity that this probably long
life should be lonely as the last ten
years of it have been.
She is not tall and lissom, like her
twenty-year old niece; but she is erect,
graceful, admirably proportioned.
Her face is clear complexioned, deli
cate featured, brightened by a pair of
nut brown eyes, that are precisely the

pretty and a prepossessing woman;

She. looks around the room, and a
shade of annoyance crosses her face
swiftly. It is one of her attributes to
be daintily neat. The small room,
that is at the same time dining hall
and saloon, isHaways fresh and fair,
and scrupulously well arranged when
she is alone; now the cushions are
piled up untidily, the sofa-rug is trail

`'Oh ! you're back, Aunt Catharine!
I'm glad of that; I want you to go out
on the green for a stroll with me."
Prom her bedroom window Minnie
has seen a manly form—the only man
ly form in the place—take the direc
tion of the green. Hence he' desire
for exercise. She would look upon it
as a willful disregard of a providential
opportunity if she did not go out now.
"My dear Minnie, just consider that
I am only just back from Balaingham,
and that lam rather tired. Do let me
have my tea first." •
"Why did you go? What could In
duce you to go rushing off in the heat
of this afternoon?" Minnie feels dis
appointed, and so speaks crossly.
"I went. to get butter and fruit,"
pointing to thobe delicacies.
"Batter and fruit!" Minnie shrugs
her supple shoulders." "I'd rather go
without them any day; why didn't
you send that grampus Bridget? If
she walked more she wouldn't puff me
out of my mind nearly every time she
comes into the room with her hard
Miss Paulett laughs. "Bridget

put you out, my little lady? Have
some tea, dear."
"No, thank you, aunt." When
Minnie first came, the still young aunt
had requested that her niece would
call her "Kate," but Minnie very de
cidedly refuted to do it. "There shall
he no mistake about my being the
niece, and years the younger of the
two," she graciously thitermined.
"No, thank you, aunt, thereVome

on', the green ; you can join me by and
by." Then'she half repeats herself of
her rudeness, and adds, "I shall like
some of that nice eretun cheese for
stippopr if I may have it."
•"You may have what you like,
dear; yes, I will join you by and by,"
the aunt says, good-temperedly.
So Minnie's conscience feels clear,
and she rings for Bridget to bring her
hat and blue llama shawl, the ends of
which she will presently toss over her
shoulder in a jaunty way that has
neither the merit of being pretty nor
uncommon, but that is immensely
popular with young ladies.
Minnie walks on perfectly satisfied

down occasionally in little fluttering

He is quite conscious that she is flirt

It is useless to deny it. He does like

such a situation. and it is not difficult
to guess what will ensue.
"Is not Miss Paulett coming out this

taken a turn round the green, to the
dismay and disgust of all the occupants 1
of all the villas.
"Aunt Catharine? No. I couldn't

sight. Beyond the abbey there is a
wood. She tosses her pretty head in
the direction of the wood, and says—

A faint spark of loyalty to charm

Boughton's breast. He is preparing
to say something that shall testify to
his admiration for and sympathy with
Miss Paulett'a tastes, when Minnie
"She is so fond of things—of cats
and flowers; it is a pity she hasn't
something better to love instead of
wasting all her life bemoaning some
one who didn't care for her."
The sole remaining spark of loyalty
dies out. "Has she done that ? Let

For a few moments she forces her
self to contemplate each side: of the

she will have to lead a Bingham life;
and when he is her husband she will
not be able to infuse an element of ex
citement into her Bingham life by
flirting with him. It• will be dull,

For four days Minnie has been very

"He ought to know it. I f you don't

off the scum vigorously.
"Don't be malicious and spiteful be

"You'd serve your own ends (I
know what they are. Minnie) better

It is settled between the lovers soon
that they were to marry inla year. By
that time Minnie will be twenty-one,
and he will have a suitable home to
receive her in. This delay will enable
him to settle his aunt elsewhere. "She
broke up her home to come down

"She'll be desperate fussy about a
house. I know she will keep you un

Hisgreatest comfort (he is dreadfully
in love) when Minnie is gone is to go
to her Aunt Kate, and talk about her.
Kate is merciful enough to let him

rule; but one day she does hint to him
that Minnie Is but mortal.
