Because obedience is their choice.

'Another train on in half an hour.
Will any gentleman get out to oblige
a lady ?'
The station at Oxenholme Junc
tion, 'change here for Windermere,'
was crowded with travellers hasten
ing lakeward, and anxious to reach
their various destinations in time for
dinner or tea, as the ease might- be.
The platfo rm ' was still dotted with,
the different costumes, ultra-pretty
or ultra-ugly, which delight thei.tour
ist eye, though the train now op the
point of starting was already eo full
that distinctions of class had ljeet,
lost sight of in the rush for, sA.ats
made - by the famished and tired
crowd. Mrs. Salway felt sure that
such was the case RS she sat in the
corner of . heyfirstelass - catriage, and
alternately cast angry glance at the
people who had scrambled ih after
her, and piteous ones at her younger
daughteri who had not bet :n so suc
cessful in the crush, and was now
standing forlornly enouiti upon tile
'lt is so like Mary,! Mrs. Salway
murmured to her elder daughters;
'really your father should have wait=

And indeed the other passengers,
notwithstanding the guard's invita-
tion and her black looks, showed -no
inclination-to postpone their arrival
for half an hoUr, and risk the
of being lateat lable trhote.
There:wits one. passenger, sitting_
in the opposite corner from the 'plat
lore), who excited Mrs. Salway's
more particular_ spleen. • She was
quite certain that the 'ticket in his
pocket, if he bad one at all (this-was
a - mental' reservation) ; was for the
third class. His rough suit Was shab
by, and had seen much service, more ;
especially the knickerbocker part of
it, and in that service his soft gray
hat had apparently 'shared to a very
considerable extent. His boots were.
as . innocent of blacking 'as his stick
of varnish, and the small knapsack
above . his head woul:l bate failed to

least suspicious hotel-keeperk :But
he had some redeeming-points about.
him : his hands were gloved—in old
gloves oneayellow, it is true—and
he 'gave up his Seat to oblige a lady,'
according to, the guard's. formula. •
-From his place in the corner of the
carriage he . could not see whom - he
was obliging, until, having retired
with. the -shamefaced confusion, which
nine out of ten Englishmen' assume
When they are being conspicuously
courteous, - he stele a glance at her
face as she stepped in. -
She gave him alittle bow of thanks,
and a smile of such evident gratitude
as . would .have converteth .
.the many
family friends who considered Mary.
Salway rather plain than. 'otherwise.-
She had a Small pale - face, with shy
brown eyes tx-size too large -for it;'
a rather timid retiring face, which
made one agree with - her mother that
'giving way in a crush was 'just like
Mary,':_and very unlike Mrs.-Salway.
Our friend in.. knickerbockers saw
the smile, and would fain have be
come better acquainted with it; -out
the trail was alreadyl_ . ,inoving Off with
the young lady, and, as. lie
bered then too late, with
iris 'knap
sack as well.
So it happened that-.Wlien lie did
reach . Windermere station' his scanty
baggage was not found.. Knap
sacks, large auctsmall,' are common
things at the ; - Lakes, and v inquiries
were in vain. The Crown Hotel at
Bowneis reached, he was only just
in time to get the last vacant__ room,
'a little . one just at the top of the
house, much encumbered with spare
baths,'a baby's crib and other odds
and ends, but otherwise almost as ill
provided with furniture as be was
with luggage. *HoweVer, he was . :
lucky in not having tiisleepunder,
the billiard.table, as has-happened to
some wayfarers in' those parts ;• and
besides, the room:had eucli.a view of.
the-head .of Windermere, the.Lang
dale Pikes, and High 7 s . t., mPinade up
for some slight inconvenieros.
Strict. evening dress isg not de
manded by etiquette at Lake
hotels.' Some . of the company, no
doubt., are Americans, travelling with
mountains of iron-bound trunks hear
ing the labels of ,balf the hotels in
Europe ; many are honeymooning'
couples, arrayed in the newest of ap
parel froM the crown 'of the head to
the sole of the foot. - But many also
carry their luggage in their hands or
on their backs, and e ' so. swallow tails
and spotless shirt-fronts are out of
the question. But. the etiquette of
the table d'hote does: look for One
thing,-and that is a black' coat of
some kind or other.- Therefore Mrs.
Salway,. who for,various reasons had

was much aggrieved the presence

at' his proximity to her 'party, and
mostof all at her busband'slitupidity
and mismanagement in leaving BLit,
to take the outside seat; so that 'the
young fellow was port to:. her. The
.objectionable gentleman -did not see
the , inatter at all in the. sums light;
but having attacked the young lady's
reserve by the.usual observations
- about the weather, rattled on so
pleasantly - that Mary quite. fOrgot
that she had not been introduced to
him, and was emboldened: to say With .
a l itt le blush,—

'A week at least; 1 . believe." .
'I suppose you have private rooms
here, and you will disappear after
dinner ?' • -
'Oh, no ; my father likes to see
strangers, and- the cuing and going;
he thinks it'a.change after home life '
'Very true,' answereethe gentle
with a look of 'content on his
face which was not lost :upon 3lary.
She begins to feel that the . Lake hol
iday promises to be at least as agree
ableas site, had expected. Women
are quick; very quick, to read 'men's
thoughts_ when they are turned to
ward themselves—even such a •:sliy
little Hamstead maiden as Mary, just
released from the •governesa's thral

from repression at the hands of - her
mother and Sisters. She steals a look

to her, but - by a hundred tiny ,proofs.
And-she enjoys her firsthOtel dinner

every eveelPg. • •
So when she rises and - be bows,
Mary is inclined to view the world
through rose-colored spectacles. Not
So her mother. Mrs.. Salway has,
dtiring dinner, been talkincr to an old
gentleman who chanced t o r sit next
to her and whom' she does not - know
from. Adam ; but nevertheless on the
road i to the drawing-room she puts
before Mary the enormity of , talking
to a gentleman to whom she,had not
been introduced, and begs her. to be
have herself like Agnes and Laura„
who, haying been wailed in, from such;
approaches - by those heavy-flanking
parties, Mr. and . Mrs. Saiway,
- have had no chance of sinning in the
same way. Her' father is instructed
to . see that Mary. is not allowed t to

a-rid'when‘ the - objectionable yOung
'gentleman 'actually has the au dacity,'
to quote Mrs. Salway's words- to en
ter the drawing room in his.knicker

aS if for some particular person, he
finds Mary penned_ in a corner by
her mother and sisters, who regard
him; and - especially his nether gar
ments, with 10010 in which wonder
and scorn are. finely Wendel. - That
richly dressed matron haying set the
eXampfe, he. finds •himself rather
coolly received in other qUarters, and
soon retires froni the scene in search,
if 'I may make a guess, of the smok
.ing -room.
But 'strict reserve like
life of a tourists' hotel is difficult to
maintain.. If yod do not meet your

it was with our yourg friends ; and
Mary suffered in 'consequence. The
sisters persisted, - as:sisters will . in
Such a case that Maiy encouraged'

too he suffered a little; Mrs. Salwny
would be rude to him, and the gills

haughty contempt that was certainly
felt more by Mary than by the person
for' whom it was chiefly intended;
Mrs. Salway had ,made up her mind

This had gone on for more' than a ,
_Week; when the Salways went by
coach to Coniston, with the inten
tion, as far as the younger ones were
concerned, of ascending Elie Old Man.
It was a bright and glOriously fine
-morning, one of those so sparingly
granted amid this beautiful" scenery.
The"-party were in the highest spirits:
the careful mother had begun to con
teMplate changing' their plans, and
running away from that vulgar young
man, who had last evening crowned
his other enormities by openly drink
ing beer out of a' pewter at the table
d'hote dinner; but now she congratu
lated herself on his absence.. It must
be confessed, Marywas a little dull;
no doubt the Scenery was beautiful,
and her sisters were prepared to join,
in any amount of -loudly-expressed
adthiration of it, Ns they swept past
Esthwaite Water, and over Coniston
Pass, and through the thickly wooded
•slope that, like a Ishrubbery, sur
rounds Ceniston Water and forms

found it.. They started five, but had

When . .they reached the top it Was

_much worse for himself and Mary ;
the latter would certaiuly suffer,
he made a resolute attempt to de
scend. •
Mary trusted to him implicitly, and
hand in hand they had sudeessfully
descended some distance, although
the steepness of the hillside and its
rocky nature, made him feel pretty
sure that this was not the side by
which they had gained the top. Slip,
stumble, slip, here a feW ' yards of
steep turf aiding them, there the
stones giving way,under foot, and
warning him at ,least that they were
on the border of a scree. The ground
grew more and more , treacherous and
rocky ; after a stumble 'Worse than

he started a\ large stone, in order to
judge by its\ descent what kind of
ground lay in front of them; three
yards, and it,was hidden from sight ;
bound, bonnd,*twice it struck the
rocks. and then an interval of silence,
and, then a sullen distant splash. He
shuddered, and drew the giil back
againg the rocks.'
'Thank God be muttered ; 'a few
more steps, and we should have rone
over the scree into Low Water Tarn.'
Mary's distress, as slowly and very
carefully they -retraced their stepfi,
may be , well imagined. Not only
was she tired, worn out, and -fright
ened, but the' thought of what would
he said' it' they could not descend
speedily was tormenting her.. The
poor girl Was 'feverishly ankious at
any risk•to get off the. , hill; - and her
companion had much work to prevent
tier meeting with A mishap. Conse
quently, when they a -4econd time
reached the cairn at the top, they
ivere in a very different frame of
mind. The young fellow groaned as
he looked at his watch, and found it
was nearly 7 o'clock and. the mist
thicker than ever. But - not a word
or.reproa:l did the brave little maid
utter to him.
In the . meantime the party assem
bled in the hotel at' the foot of the
hill were passing through quite a
series of anxieties. When G o'clock
came; and with it the returning dci.ach,
Mrs. Sal Way s anger . at the absence
of her younger daughter could.tar4-.
ly 'be concealed from the outside
public.., Of course they could not
leave her, and the coach had to de
part with Out them. Her husband
present and Mary absent shared. the
mother's reproaches with the objec
tionable young gentleman, while, the
sisters were quite as much surprised
as. they. expressed themselves to-be,
for this was 'so unlike Mary.' But
when 9 o'clock came and no signs of
the missing ones, and the ' mist grew
thicker, the-lan dlady - expressed her
self decidedly ,of• the opinion 'that
the. young- lady and gentleman would
have to stay upon he hill all night,
and hoped they i l d some - wraps.'
'Stay on the h ' all night, woman!
My daughter; with that young man !
Good- gracious, Mr. Sal way, you must
do something I This .-is too dread
ful'!' _
So a search party was organized,
though with some difficulty, and
guides, brandy and lanterns obtain=_
ed iiut before it set out Mrs. Sal - way
liad been moved to contemplatethe
affair from a different point of view.
She heard the 'tarn' and the 'cliffs'
mentioned in whispers by the guides
with nminous glances, and saw from
her husband's face that he knew and
did not . think lightly of their Suspic
ions. Up to this time she had thought
only of her daughter's good name,
and the way in which it was being
compromised, but now her fears for
her daughter's safety took the place
of-that reeling. Agnes and Laura
eloquent enough before, were awed
into silence, and the affair was as
sliming a very serious light in the
eyes of all, when a tray outside pro
claimed some news, and just as the
party were starting into the misteand
rain, the lost ones stood before them.
'Thank Heaven 1' cried Mr. Sal
way, taking charge of Mary, who,
what with her wornont cotAition anti

•To any satisfaction, sir . !' cried
Mrs'Salwty, taking up an indignant
attitude between him and Mary; but
before she, could say any more the
greater culprit had gone. and the
lesser one was not in a state at pres
ent to bear the lecture which Mrs.
Salway was prepared to administer.
And I think was -still being held in
terrorem lover the young lady when
they took ; their seats outside the
coach for 'Bowness next day; she
was evidently — in disgrace, and , her
mother would not let her quit' her
side- fora moment:: For a wonder
Mary had escaped all injurious ef!
Teas of the exposure, and though
very quiet this morning and very shy,
she did not look altogether unhappy,
and once or twice on the road a smile
would cross the demure - little face;
and a twinkle — of fan appear in the
big brown eyes. Mrs. Saiway saw
something Of this, and feeling sure
that Mary was infatuated with that
'dreadfUl, young fellow,' added a few
severe phraßes to the lecture she was
conning, and hardened her 4 heart to
administer it without mercy. ,'Mary
shall go home to Hampstead to-mor
row; with Anne she will be out of
danger,' she mentally determined ;
Anne eing the sourest of Mary's
maiden aunts, at this present mo ,
meat taking care of their house dor=
ing the holidays. 'No more holidays
for . you, young lady,' thought her
mother to herself.
They bad passed' Esthwaite Water,
and were nearing Windermere, when
the attention of ull upon the coach
was attracted by the sight of a four
in-hand behind them. It was splend
idly horsed, and, as two servants lit
handsome liveries were sitting behind
it was clearly a private coach.. It
came along with a wonderful smooth.
ness, which put the spring .of the
rickety vehicle upon whose top they
were perched toshame. Neverhelesst
it seemed in no hurry to pass them ;
and presently Mr. Salway, who had
been running his eyes over the horses
with an expression of critical appro.
91,;((alted his own driver whose was
thefour-in-hand' following them.
'I guess it will be Sir Henry Nor
borOugh's,'Aaid he, whistling up his
horses, and:Aetting to the side of the
road. 'I see his team standing- in
the'hotel-yard when I was a-starting.
They're foir as pretty bays with
white stocking as I ever-see togetii;
er.' •
'lt's Sir. Henry Narboibugh's four
in-hand,' 6iclaimed, Mr. Salway to
his _womankind, as 'the other drew
gradually alongside.
Ab, Miss Mary, how your cheek
has been flushing and blushing, and
your eye brightening, and your mouth
'smiling a pruurbappy smile, though
yoa have never looked up to see who
is the spruce driver of this gallant
equipage turned in all respect fit for
Hyde Park.! Now he is a!ongside,
handling the ribbons, though the
road is narrow and steep, with the
ease of custom, looking, with'' his tall
tait - atid black coat and the flower in
hi buttonhole, every inch a baronet
and a member of the Coach Club.'
He is alongside, and not - until then,
when he lifts his hat and shoots one
glance at Mary, sitting well protect
ed by her Another and sisters from
the wolf—wolf indeed 11 wolf no lon
ger—not until then do the others
recognize their old acquaintance of
the knickerbockers and shabby hat.
He is gone before they could express
their astonishment, or any ; but she,
who is so well prepared for it; returns
his salute. -
`Good gracious !' uttered Mts . Sal
way slowly, her eyes glued "to his
back, 'can it be ? 1 suppose it really
is. Why, who can it be ? , Can it be
his coach ?' •
'Sir Harry Narborough, I suppose,'
answered her husband drily, who has
secretly sympathized with Mary, and
:las been puzzling his brains how to
rescue her from that lecture and other
disagreeables that he suspects are
being prepared for her. -
'Mary, is that Sir Harry Narbor
ough ?'
'He told me so,' answered the girl
demurely, as if the 'most impossible
assertion from his lips would not , have
commanded her credence.
And it was really true. If the
early part - of Mary's courtship had
had something of the bitter with the
sweet, that was all over now. No
leßtures, no banishment to Aunt
Anne for her. 'lt was so unlike
Mary,' said her sisters among them
selves, meaning so unlike her to gain
the heart of a baronet. But they
were good girls in their may, and
tolerably unselfish—just as ready to
fall down and worship and pet the
successful sister as to repress and
snub the schoolgirl. As for Mrs. -
Salway, When she found Sir Harry's
four-in.hand standing at the door of
the !'town, and half the visitors in
lowness standing round admiring
it when that z-rather cynical young
ma met her at the door with all
hcinor, and- a few minutes later pro
posed for her youngest daughter ;
when he put that very. coach at their
disposal, and the whole 'party had a
week's tour in it; when all these
things and many more almost as
pleasant (including going in to the
table &hate dinner on a baronet's arm)
had happened, why, Mrs. Salwav
taught herself to believe that this
match was entirely of her contrivance,
and- was owing simply and purely
her 'good management and 'diplomacy.
And demure, quiet Mary, with the
shy little face and the big brown
eyes, the barnnet's wife to be, what
of her? Well, nothing'rnore, I think;
for this happened in August. of- this
year, 1881, and among the forthcom
ing Christmas festivities an event of
the utmost importance in Mary's life
is arranged, which is looked upon by
Mrs. &limy with much pride and
satisfaction.—London Society.

A Kentucki Cave that Rivals the
There was discovered'on Thursday
last, on the farm of Evan Rogers,
about one mile from the - post-office
of this town, a cave that bids fair to
rival,.l if not surpass, the world-re
nowned- • Mammoth Cave of Ken
tucky. Back,of Mr. Rogeri' house
stands a high hill, in which there arc
several small caves, one of them be
ing used by the family as a cellar.
Mr. Rogers, desiring additional
room, Conceived the idea of blasting
out some rock in the rear. In doing
so he struck a vast opening, and was
greatly astonished to find before him
an immense cave, with avenues at
least 100 feet wide. Saddling his
horse, be rushed into town and com
municated the news of this great dis
covery to the astonished citizens.
Torches were at once prepared, and
he started back to explore .the mys
teries of the wonderful cave, accom
panied by well-known business men
and county officials. _ _
Entering the 'cave they were at
once greatly impressed with its grin
deur. For three long hours theyix
plored its spacious avenues amidst'
its wonderful formations wittiOut
meeting-a brlrrier to their progress
until they came to a wide ; deep ri
vh, which they found contained vast
schools of eyelss fish and other sight
less wonders of the marine wo i rld.
Thy retraced their steps; determin
ed upon a- complete exploratidn of
the cave the following day. So the
following day a much .larger party
entered the cave, accompanied by
Surveyor John E. Stone, who took
an accurate measurement of the dis
tance they traversed. They came to
what seemed to. be the end of the
main avenue, after traveling "a dirk
tance of fourteen miles, and it was
near midnight before they' reached
their home. There are evidences on
all sides that the cave was the abode
of a prehistoric race,, and that., that
race was'identified with the_ ancient,
Egyptian races, as can now be prov
ed by the light which is given to us
in this very important discovery,

Carlyle entertained them with poll
tical=talk. 'He spoke of politics and
bribery, and the deep and wide influ
ance of money, which seems now the
one recognizable claim to human es
teem. 'But that cannot last long,'
quoth I. 'No, it can't last,' he re
plied, and utterly." On the next
visit to London 'dined at the Mills--
a biennial jubilee. John Mills in
glorious spirits ; too happy to enter
into deep things. He alluded to the
iridiscribable change and growth he
experienced when he discovered that
what was right for others might not
be right for him. Talked of life as
not being all fun, though there is a
great deal of fun in it." Daring this

tion to the revival 'of this' beautiful
industry that the present article is
written. .•
This revival of the art, - after a cessa
tion of nearly a century,, has been'
effected by the exertions of the Coun
tess Adrian Marcell° and the Princess
Giovanelli-Chigi. These two ladies
who to their other graces ;add the
charm of far-seeing charity,opened a
school -for-lace-making in 187'4, under
the sliecial protection of Queen Mar
garet,- to whom they are, ladies 'of
honor. Several specimens of old
Venetian lace were found in the poss
ession of an aged woman of Burano
named Cencia Scargagliola, who had
wrought-them in her youth, and who
" - awoke one day to find herself fam
ous." In spite of her great age she
was made d i rectress of the work-room,
being the only person competent of
the office, and more than two hun
dred girls have been taught by her.
The mostinlportant work they have
yet completed _ is the production of
the laces of Pope Clement XIII Rez--
zonico, bOrn in Venice in 1693. The
originals.are in the pos.session of the
Queen; who, with the geberosity that
distitguishes her, tent= them to be
copied by the school. Fifteen work
men accomplished the task in two
years' time. One piece of lace, three
meters long and fifty-five inches wide,
valued at 6000 francs, was exhibited
