little sigh of resig nation, settled
back more comfortably 'against the

burned by long xpi:?sure.
.to tropic.
' to the tint of the autemn leaveleaves-thatlay about him. He would have
been a noticeable figure anywhere,
but . he was particularly so -amid . his
present surroundings : - He was the
kind of man one would have rather,
expected to meet in an Atabian des.,
ert'or on the wilds of the Pampas
than amid this ; quiet English land
scape ; and his dress, which- was a
compromise between civilized re
quirements and , tropic ease, tended
to increase the natural strangeness
of his aspect.. • .•
Stephen Langton, like all men:`,..6f
any strength' of character at all, had
his friends and his enemies, and their
estimates of - him differed . as muchas
people's estimates Of . their acquaint
ances do ; differ. But .on one point
they were unanimons: Langton : was
queer.' . That verdict had been pro
nounced on him very early in life,
and had stuck to MEd ever since. In
the cradle, in the nursery, at school,
he had diff(ired frOmall other babies,
from all other children, from all other
*schoolboys: His, regimental. compa
ions in the 200th
ions had, accepted and
confirmed the designation of his nurse
and his schoolmates. 'He ; too k no
interest in any of the things in which
the British subaltern most delighted
He (lid not bet, he never touched a
card, he did. not brag about his prow
ess to the fair sex. I suspect that it
was the last mentioned trait that
most exercised, the minds of his;
messmates. What, could you make
of a fellow who seemed as anxious to
avoid the blandiShments of the pret
tiest girls of a garrisontown
they had been as faded and as dull
as the lady whose commonplaces
bored him to death on this glorious
afternoon ? And Stephen. Langton
was worth a pretty girl's smile, and
might have had his choice in most
ballrooms.- Independently of the
advantages of a handsome face • and
figure, his expectations were thrice .
as great as those of any other' ma n
in the 200th. But Nelly'Delpatd, of
- Portsmouth,.and ,Kelly Despard, of
Chatham, and other Nellys and Fan- .
nys innumerable, all-of them pretty
-and some of them'. rich, retired in
turn from the assault of that itnpreg
nable fortress. Stephen Langton was
not a marrying man, and Sir.6harles
Grandison himself was net more ig-'
norarit of the verb " to flirt." He
especially disliked any allusion to his
martial achievements; and if he had
left his regiment with the " Rogue's
March " in .his ears; could not have
been more unwilling to talk of -his
campaigning days. But he had done
good service in his time, and in many
a village on the wild-northwest, bord
er of Hindostan the name of Langton

haired men, who remember with what

bre as were the prevailing tints of
his character, it had lights as well as
shadows. Many a man who was
louder-tongued in sympathy lacked
the depths of real tenderness that lay,
under the , hard exterior.: It is a,
great tribute to the sterling worth
of a man who makes but few
friends when the few who know him
most thoroughly are loudest in their
praises. There were tliose who could
tell - of deeds of quiet heroic self-sac
rifice done by this silent and sardonic
man on sea and battle-field, tor duty
and for friendship's sake. Every
body knew at whose east the children_
of poor Jack Naseby were being fed
and educated, and how, nobly the
promise whispered in the ear of -the
dying comrade had been fulfilled.
And when poor little Tompkins, the
soapboiler'snon, came that awful
cropper over the Derby, and saw
nothing before him but °to sell out
and retire to an eternity of soap
boiling under the eyes of an indig
nant father, it was Langton who set,
him right, and tided him over that'
disastrous time. But .still, in spites
of such stories as these, of which hia
friends would tell you many,, the Or-.
- dinary verdict regarding Stephen,
Langton was that he was "queer;'.
and the general impression he made
on most_ people was the reverse of

On his aceeasion to his fortune, he
had behaved in fashion totally dif
ferent from whathad been expected
of him, and Langton - Ball. bad never ,
for a month together been empty of
guests. His liberality in this respect
did notarise from any modification
of his own! peculiarities, but was sole
ly due to the influence bf his sister,
Miss Bertha Langton, to whom, re-,
.port saik he was passionately, at
tached. Report was right for - once;
and Berti;s. word was law to her
brother, w o concentrated upbn her
all the affection that other men dissi
pate on the thousand and one objects
to which he was utterly indifferent.
" The magic emerald," said Ste-
Then Langton, "has been an heirloom
in our family for the last foul. hun
dred years. Apart from its associa
tions, it is a very valuable stone from
its size and quality. It is said undef
certain circumstances to have the
poiver of losing its tint, and becoming
perfectly colorless."
" What are those circumstances-?"
asked Lady Matilda.
" If its possessor:is guilty of any
great meanness or rascality, if he be•
trays a friend, or commits any really .
.or wicked action, the emerald
loses its color, and when that hap
pens it is a warning of certain pun
ishment. The criminal may strive
hard to avert the penalty; but it will
come in spite of all he may do."
'" And has that ever happened ?"
wNever, since it has been in our
family," responded Langton. "My
forefathers have either been exception
ally virtuous, or the emerald has lost'
its powers or never possessed them."
" 0 Mr. Langton, 'pray don't cast
doubt on such, a reallycharming sto
ry 1 So very romantic, so truly in
teresting. But, supposing that its
posse4or---you, for instance (though
I'm sure, of course, that you wouldn't)
—were to do something -really dread
ful, would the emerald never recover
-its color?"
"'Never, sO long l as it remained in
my possession. But directly it - be
came another man's -property -it
would be as at present, and would
remain,so until he did something
awful, and so on."
Lady Matilda made no remark in
answer to her compa.nion's last
speech,, and,. indeed, wins not to
have beard She was looking in
tently between the bushes behind
Langton, and, as he ceased to speak,
she rose, in order to obtain .a better
view of the object on which her eye
were fixed. Langton turned; and
gazed with a languid-curiosity intik
,same direction. But i3uddenly* he
rose too, and stood beside his com
panion,- with his teeth .set fast, and
his faee paling beneath its ruddy
bronze. Lady Matilda'a face was
white with ill-dissembled anger, and
theliand which.patted the leaves 08
agitated by an angry tremor.
A young bari of twenty-twb or
three, light haired, fresh colored, and
looking eXasperatingly cool and calm
in the blazing sunlight which lit the
open space . About him, came lounging
up the little hill on which stood the
copse which• hid the listeners from
View. Beside him walked a girl,
some, few years his junior, 'attired in
a dress of some diaphanous fabric,
lit by ribbons of pale bluer Her sum
mer hat, decorated like her dress, she
carried in her hand, and A thickly
tWisied coronet of leaves and flotrs
was in its place upon 'her lust us
hair.' Ignorant of the scrutiny/ to
which they were, subjected, they came
on until they were within twenty
yards of thAr concealed watchers.
Then, siezed by a sudden faintness,
the young man fell, limp and inter
tebrat', .against a tree, uttering a
hollow groan. The lady regarded
him with a countenance whose;grav
ity was contradicted by the laughter
of -her eyes. He raised his eyes tip-.
pealingingly to her face, and groaned
again. •
"Well ?" she asked.
He pressed his , hand upon • his
heart, and gasped:
"-The customary. restorative." - •
The girl looked about her, and
then, believing herself unperceived,
stooped Over her exhausted compan
ion and kissed'him. He, with a sigh
of relief, briskly recovered , the per
pendicular, and the pair disappeared
from the view of the enraged Lady
Matilda and her companion. •
''Shameful;!" gasped the angry
lady. •-0 Shameful I Outrageous !
How dare he ?"
Langton made no answer, bu
tugged silently at his mustache.
"Thir. Langton," panted Lady Ma
tilda, I pray you to believe that I
am no party to this disgraceful con•
duct op the part of my daughter."
" Disgraceful !" repeated Langton,
with an astonished lifting of the eye
browst •" Why disgraceful? Per
tectly natural, I should sig."
Lady Matilda glared at him as if
doubtful of his sanity.
Given," continued her compan
ion, ".a country house, a handsome
young man, a pretty girl, time, place,
and opportunity, surely . oke ' result
should not surprise you. •
But without consulting me—"
Langton broke in. with a calm im
pudence which completely bewildered
his companion :
" Did you always ask your mam
ma's permission before—'
He did not complete this sentence,
but. eked= out his meaning with a
smile.- -
The lady, with an , angry flirt of
her parasol, turned from him and
walked ~towards the distant Hall. He
followed her.
",31y dear Lady Matilda, pray
don't _Rake the matter -so hardly.
here is—isn't a better fellow in the
hole world than Roderic Vane."
"A penniless adventurer." ,
P,eraiit me. NOt an adventurer,

ccent - position is past dispute; be is
a gentleman, and has very good pros
"A very good catch for a trades
man's daughter, no doubt," answered
the offended mother. " Bat I bad
looked higher than a government
clerk for Elsie."
Langton would have spoken again;
but she flashed round on him sud
denly :with undisguised rage in face
and voice. -
Do - you plead his cause, Mr.
" I do. zlf I may be permitted to
say so, I shall regard it as a good
match-on both sides." ,
' She; turned from him with 'a
ture and exclamation in which anger,
disdain, and surprise were all ex
pressed, and left him Where he stood.
Stephen Langton gained the soli•
tude of• his own room, and shut-him
self in, to fight out the great struggle
of . his life, and have his bitter hour
The pride that had kept back any
avowal of What he now knew to be
a hopeless passion was too shallow a
pretence _to be kept_ t!Oo himself.
The agonies of such a mind are easier
imagined than described, at least by
such a pen as mine. There is no
scrap of the proverbial wisdom which
is truer than that one ivlifeh teaches
us that the stillest watets are oft
times the deepest, and those passions
that Stephen Langton 'so perseier
ingly cloaked in , cynicism were wider
and more real than even anY of his
closest inmates would have deemed
A knock came to his door, and, in
answer to his query, the voice of his
valet announced the advent of his
dinner-hour. He bade the fellow be
gone savagely, and a minute after
cursed himself for his weakness.
" You ass!" he said, apostrophiz
ing his reflection in the mirror. "Is
this your philosophy ? Is this the
result of the self-drilling of a lifetime,
to make yourself the babble of your
own servants' hall, andthe tool - of
sucho match-making old herridan as
that ? ' What do you want with the
kid, you wrinkled, crow's-footed;
overgrown schoolboy ? What's. the
girl to you; or you to her? What
quality of body or brains or heart
have you to win such a - prize by
What right have you to cast your
ugly shadow en two lives ?" • ,
A second knock came to the' door
as he finished this uncomplimentary
harangue. • 1
"Who's there ?" he askqd.
" It is I," answered a tamale voice.
"Is anything the matter, Stephen ?"
" No," he answered, afraid: to trust
his voice to say more.
"John said he - thought you ware
ill," returned the voice..
" I am not ill," returned Stephen.
I shall be down to dinner present
" Stephen,l am sure there is some
thitg the matter,"_ continued the
voice, with feminine persistency.
.Langton opened the door hnd con
fronted his visitor. ' i' l
44 What do lon want?" i e asked
ufigraciously:i' il
H' What is the matter with yoU?"
reiterated this feminine Irish echo.
Stephen Langton was tall and dark,
Bertha Langton was tall and fair.
Stephen was forty and looked more;
Bertha was almost twenty-one, and ,
looked less. They differed',in ,a dozen'
other things, and yet were alike in!,
some mysterious way. Where the
likeness lay the most astute observer
could never have determined; but-it
existed, nevertheless.
" There's nothing the matter with
me," answered Langton.- " Can't you
take an answer 11"
‘! Don't talk to me in that way,
Stephen," answered the lady, in calm
reproof. " You'll only be sp_rzy for
it afterward." .
.Langtou made an uneasy growl
Bertha smiled. ;
;It's only business affairs, my
dear. -I've been bothered 'lately.
Run away, like a good girl. I'll be
at dinner directly."
He turned away as he spoke, and
walked towards his toilet-table. But
before he reached it a pair of soft
arms were around his neck, and his
sister's cheek against his own.
He sat down, almost , unmanned by
this touch of womanly pity. The
girl would have spoken; 'but there
was such a look in the eyes he turned
on her that -she forbore. Presently
he said,quite in his ordinary voice :
" You are the only creature who
has my secret. Keep it, Bertha."
She ansivered "by a, kiss, and left
Feeling Strangely composed and
quiet after l his intense , mental stra in, i
Stephen dressed and -descended to
dinner. His appearance was the sig
nal for a general movement to the
table. Roderic Tene t he noticed,
was iii at ease, and divided his fur
tive. regards between Lady Matilda,
who sat, prim and rigid, exactly op
posite Lim, and her daughter Elsie,
his companion of the afternoon, who
had been established far down the
table, with an insuperable barrier of
two.. county members, their wives,
and !a clerical dignitary between them.
Elsie was very pale, and. sat out the
dinner, eating nothing, and sending
away her plate ; untouched after each
course There seemed to be a con
straint on all present; and conversa
tion languished, in spite of the gal
lant efforts of Bertha, ably seconded
by her brother.
Weavere speaking thisafternoon,
Lady Matilda, of the magic emerald,'
said Langton.
Lady Matilda remembered the
conversation. • - _
" That is the stone in the centre
piece of my sister's necklace."
' It was nota atone of extraordinary
size, and would havershown butimor.
y in that respect-beside Some of its
famous sisters. But color and
brilliance were marvellous; and its
water as pure ail that of the famous
- treasure for love of which poor Isaac
Levi went mad. Its mention gave a .
filip-to the conversation;
and though
Lady Matilda still maintained a atonyJ
silence, and Roderic and Elsie um
mained taciturn or monosyllabic, the
rest of the guests found plenty to
talk of regarding the histories and
legends of famous jewels.
'Dinner over, it was proposed by
Bertha, and carried with acclamation,
that tea should be partaken of in the
garden where the ladies accordingly
repaired. During:the: after-dinner
symposium,Langton noticed that
Vane drak Much more than his
usual quantity, of wine, swallowing
glass after glass in rapid succession,
and with a countenance of unaltered
gloom, t rising to join the *digs,

who oould be seen wanderibg round
the terraces of the garden, the young
man took Langton's arm, and drew
him sway down .a sequestered alley,
which led into the park. The ;wid
expanse of green . stretched in one
unbroken wave-like roll until it met
the overarching blue. The birds,
recovering from the languor of the
day. were- giving the prelhirinary
trills of their evensong. It was such
an evening as is made for lavers'
confidences,—when not fliterect tbro'
a third party. So thought Stephen
Langton • but being fairly caught,
he -trade d himself up for silent en•
d u ranee.
I' must school myself," thought
be; "and here is an opportunity for
a lesson. What's the matter ) Vane?"
he asked aloud; "I never saw you
look so glum."'
"I, never felt so glum before, Steve.
I'mgone coon."
" Will You translate ?"
"Um in love:."'
"For the first time ?"
'' Yes, to anything like this extent.
Look here, Langton,. I must -tell
somebody or burst. Let me tell ; you."
Langton dropped his handso the
young man's shoulder.
"You young mull As if A didn't
know all about it !'
Vane stared; his companionemiled.
" Well, it saves me the trenble of
telling you, and you the bore of lis
teeing. You're a good fellow, Lant
ton, and you've been very kind to
me. 'what. would you advise me to
do P Lady Matilda knows` it, I swear.
She cut me dead this afternoon, and
Elsie 'came in to dinner looking like
a ghost; so,' suppose "'she has been
having_a bad quarter of, an hour, too.
You see, I'm only a 'younger son.
The governor won't stand a penny
more than three hundred a year, and
I get :another three from the office.
I can't marry Elsie •on that. Her
mother won't bear of it. I suppose
she's right. It's bard to ask a girl
to give up a life of ease and comfort
to live, and perhaps rear a family, on
six hundred a year: If Lady Matilda
were another sort of woman, she
might make things straight for as.
But that's past hoping for. I must
give her up, old man; and get out of
this. I've got • enough coin to buy
an axe, and get, a' passage to Canada;
and I'll go there and live it down.
But it's bard lines," he said, with a
break in his office. "It's hard lines."
"Keep up your heart, my boy,'%
returned:Langton, touched by the
young man's artless expressions of
grief. " It's lmil; but might be
worse. If the girl loves you, it won't
matter to her if you have six hundred
a yeas or sixtythousind. And 'if
she doesn't mind, why should you ?
There are better chances on the cards
than _Canada, anyway. Hang on

One by one the - guests wandered
back to the Hall, and distibuted
themselves over the carpeted desert
of the great drawing-room, while the
ladies officiated at the piano. Miss.
Elsie, being warmly pressed e to sing,
begged to be excused ; and Roderic,
after several vain endeavors to get
within conversation distance of his
inamorata=each attempt being dlei
erly frustrated by Lady Matilda—
wandered off to smoke a sadly con
templative, cigar, and muse upon her
manifold perfections and his own üb
Lady Matilde, buried in the downy
depths of an armchair, her eyes ap
parently exploring vacancy, but in
reality keenly. :Watching the move
ments of Langton, waited with feline
patience. She was too wise a woman
to meddle actively in the Matter and
court another rebuff; but Langton's
affectation of indifference had by no
means -blinded her to the true state
of the case, .and she hoped still. •
Elsie sat apart, beside the window,
half in and half out of :the flood of
Moonlight which partially lit the
drawing-room. But Langton, with
the exception of a few phrases, of
course, did_ not trouble her with his
conversation, and presently retired
quietly, leaving Bertha at the piano.
He eat at the window of his room,
and looked_ out over the moon-flooded
.ark, past the thin ribbon of sliver
which marked the course of theriver,
past-the rich-leaved trees that stood
like islands of shadow in - s sea f of
light.- He was looking_beyond them ,
into his own future. He-was calmer
now, and could look at i lt quietlSin
spite - of the terrible gnsts'of passion
that still shook him for a moment,
and passed, leaving the calm deeper.
So far he had done well, ind was sat
isfied with himself upon the whole,
'as belied a right to be. The prime
Jtempiation Of his life was overcome,
and his passion had made him false
neither to love nor friendship.
The calm beauty of the night seem
ed to draw him from the house out
into the alley in which he had .heard
the confidences of the lovelorn Rod;
eric. He could not pass the spot,
without something ofa tremor. His
hopes lay buried under that grassy '
inoundi and a great wave of some
nameless emotion, made up of love .
And sorrow and hopeless !lope, rose
in his gout' And before it sank again!
he saw before him something that
sent the blood' from his face—Roderic
and Elsieolimly visible in the shade
at the turning of the alley. He slip•
ped i back into' the darkness with a
nurse on his lips„ and something 'very
like a prayer in - his heart. Some
blind feeling that his trial was beirii
made unnecessarily bitter crossed his
mind. The voices reached him
where he , stood, ."too Joir for the

across the park in the direction of

blow over the brink. One _ stifing

foam. Was it• fancy, or did be in

him through the surges? What mat

could be beard by no man save him

The horror of the place was, so
strong upon liiin.that he.ran like a

for the house. He slipped in unper

his dress, stanched the slight scratch,
ani then, pale - but calm, descended
to the drawing-room.
The guests were grouped in 'the

the influence of some strong emotion
of surprise or wonddr. As he enter

dual When an individual is reported to
ha* died of disease of the heart, says
a writer in Hall's Journal of Health,
we are in the habit of regarding it as
as inevitable event, as something
which could not have been foreseen
or prevented, and it is too much the
habit, when persons suddenly fall
down dead; to report the heart as the
'cause ; this silences all inquiry and
investigation,.and saves the trouble
and inconvenience of a post mortem
A truer report would have a tendency
to save many lives. It is through a
reported disease of the heart , that
many an opium eater is let ofi'into
the grave, whiCh covers at once his
folly and his - crime ; the brandy
drinker, too; quietly slides around
the corner thus, and is heard of no
more; in short, this report of the
disease of the heart is the mantle of
charity which the polite coroner and
sympathetic physician throw around
the paves of generous people.
At a scientific congress at Sties- 1
burg it was that of sixty-six
persona who bad suddenly died, an
immediate and faithful post mortem
showed that only two persons had
any heart affection whatever„ one

nom disease of the heart. Nine out
of sixty died of apoplexy—one out of
every seven ; while forty-six—lime
than , two out of three—died of lung
affection; half of them congestion.of
the lungs; that is the lungs were so
full of - blood they could not work ;
there was not:Toom enough for air to
get in to sup', •rt life. It is then of
cUnsideiablC practical interest .to
know some the common everyday
causes of ongestion of the lungs,
a disease w ich, the figures._above
being trite, kills three times as many
persons at short warning_ as apoplexy
and heart disea:,elogether.
