THE SCHANTON TRDJUNE FRIDAY MORNING. SEPTEMREU 21. 1891;
It is just as well perli!i8 Hint tlio
matter . bad beoomo notorious. Other
wise the Armours hail lived iu that un
pleasant condition of being constantly
"discovered." It was Bimply a cao of
aiming at absoluto secrecy, which had
been frustrated by Frank himself, or
bold and unembarrassed acknowlodfr-nieut-
and on attempt to carry things off
with a high hand. Tho latter course
was the only one possible. It had origi
nally been Richard's idea, appropriated
by General Armour and accepted by
Mrs. Armour and Marion with what
grace was possible. The publication of
the event prepared their friends and
precludod the necessity for reserve.
What the friends did not know was
whother they ought or ought not to
conimiricrabe tho Armours. It was a dif
ficult position. A death, an accident, a
lost reputation, would have been easy
to them. Concerning those there could
bo no donbt But an Indian duughter-iii-law,
a person in moccasins, was
acarcely a thing to bo congratulated
upon, and yet sympathy and consolation
might be much misplaced. No one could
tell how the Armours would tiiko it,
for even tlieir oloscst acquaintances
knew what kind of delicate hauteur was
possiblo to them. Even tho " 'centric"
Ricluird, who visited the cottages of the
poor, carrying soup and luxuries of
many kinds, accompanying them with
tho most wholesome advice a single man
ever gave to families and tho heads of
families, whoso laugh was bo cheery
and spontaneous and face bo uncom
monly grave aud sad nt times had a
faculty for manner. With astonishing
suddenness he could ran insurmounta
ble barriers, and people not of his or
der, who occasionally presumed on his
simplicity of life and habits, found
themselves put distinctly ill at ease by
a quiet, curious look in his eye. .No
man was ever more tho recluso and at
tho same time tho man of tho world.
He had had his bitter little comedy of
life, but it was different from that of
Lis brother Frank. It was buried very
deep. Not ono of his family knew of
it Edward Lambert and one or two
others who had good reason never to
epeak of it wero tho only persons pos
sessing his secret.
But all England 'knew of Frank's
mesalliance. And the question was,
What would people do? They very prop
erly did nothing at first. They waited
to see how the Armours would act; they
did not congratulate; they did not con-

which chanced to resent General Ar
mour's pofitics and those others which
wero emotional and sensational on ev
ery subject, particularly so where wom
en were concerned.
It was tho beginning of the season,
but the Armours had decided that they
would not go to town that is, the gen
eral and his wife were not going. They
felt that they ought to be at Greyhopo
with their daughter-in-law, which was
to their credit Regarding Marion they
had notliiug to say. Mrs. Armour in
clined to her going to town for the sea
son to visit Mrs. Townley, who had
thoughtfully written to her saying that
she was very lonely and begging Mrs.
Armour to let lier come, if she would.
She said that cf course Marion would
bob much of her people in town jnst the
Bamo. Mm Townley was a very clever
and tactful woman. She guessed that
General Armour and his wife wero not
likely to come to town, but that must
not appear, and tho invitation should
be on a different basis, as it was.
It is probablo that Marion saw through
tho delicate plot, but that did not make
her like Mrs. Townley less. Theso lit
tle pieces of art make life possible these
Marion was, however, not in good
humor. She was nervous and a little
petulant. Sho had a high strung tem
perament, a sensitivo perception of the
fitness of things and a horror of what
was gaucho, and bIio would, in brief,
make a rather austere person if the
lines of life did not run in her favor.
She had something of Frank's impul
siveness and temper. It would have
been a groat blessing to her if sho had
had a portion of Richard's philosophical
humor also. She was fit a point of ten
sion her mother and Richard could see
that She was anxious though, for tho
world, she would not have bad it thought
bo regarding Captain Vidall. She had
never cared for anybody but him. It
was possible tho never would. But ho
did not know this, and she was not ab
solutely sure that his evident but as yet
informal love would stand this strain,
which shows how people very honora
ble and perfect minded- in themselves
may allow a large margin to other peo
ple who are presumably honorable and
pcrfeot minded also. . '
There was no engagement between
them, aud he was not bound ' in any
way, and could, therefore, without slash
ing the hem of tho code, retire without
any apology, but they had had that un
spoken understanding which most peo
ple who love each other show even bo
fore a word of declaration has passed
their lips. If ho withdrew because of
this scandal, there might be some awk
ward hours for Frank Armour's wife at
Greyhope, but more than that there
would bo a very hard hearted ' young
lady to play her part in the deceitful
world. She would be as merciless as
ehe could be, '. -Nufcaraliy, being young,
she exaggerated the importance of the
event and brooded on it It was differ
ent with her father and mother. They
were shocked and indignant at first, but
when tho first scene had been faced they
began to make the best of things all
round that is, they procecdod at once
to turn the North American Indian into
a European, t matter of no little diffi
culty. A governess was discussed, but
General .Armour did not like the idea,
and Richard opposed it heartily. She
must be taught English and educated
and mado possible "in Christian cloth
ing, " as Mrs. Armour put it Of the
education they almost despaired all

ty and a dressmaker might do much as
to tho other.
The evening of her arrivul Lali would
not, with any urging, put on clothes of
Marion's which had been sent in to her.
And the next morning it was still tho
same. Sho camo into tho breakfast room
dressed still in buckskin aud moccasins,
and though tho greaso had been tuken
out of her hair it was still combed ilat
Mrs. Armour had tried to iulluonce her
through Muckeuzio, but to no purpose.
Sho was placidly stubborn. It had been
unwisely told hor by Mackenzie that
they were Marion's clothes. They
scarcoly took in tho fact that the girl
had pride; that sho was tho daughter of
a chief and a chief tainess herself, and
that it was far from happy to offer her
Marion's clothes to wear.
Now, Richard, when ho was a lad,
had been on a journey to tho south seas
and hud learned some of tho peculiari
ties of the native mind, and he did not
supposo that American, Indians differed
very much from certain well bred Poly
nesians in littlo matters of form and
good taste. When his mother told him
what had occurred beforo Lali entered
the breakfast room, he went directly to
what ho believed was tho canso and ad
vised tact with conciliation. Ho also
pointed ont that Lali was something
taller than Marion, and that sho might
be possessed of that general trait of hu
manity vanity. Mrs. Armour had not
yet got used to thinking of tho girl in
another maimer than an intrusivo being
of a lower order who was there to try
their patience, bat also to do their bid
ding'. Sho had yot to gra.-p the fact that,
boiiig her son's wife, sho must have
theroforo a position in the house, exer
cising a certain authority over tho serv
ants, who, to Mrs. Armour, at first
seemed of superior stuff. But Richard
said to her: "Mother, I fancy you
don't quite grasp tho situation. Tho
girl is a daughter of a chief and tho de
scendant of a fiuuily of chiofs, perhaps
through many generations. Iu her own
laud sho has been used to respect and
has been looked up to pretty generally.
Her garments are, I fancy, considered
very smart in tho Hudson bay country,
and a finely decorated blanket like hers
is expensive up there. You see, we havo
to tako tho thing by comparison, so
pleaso give tho girl a chance."
And Mrs. Armour answered wearily:
"I suppose you are right, Richard. You
generally are in the end, though why
you should bo I do not know, for you
never see anything of tho world any
tuoro, atid you moon about among the
cottagers. 1 suppose it's your native
senso and the books you read. "
Richard laughed softly, but there was
a queer ring in tho laugh, and hp camo
over r.tumblingly and put his arm round
his mother's shoulder. "Never mind
how I get such senso as I have, mother.
I havo so much time to think it would
bo a wonder if I hadn't 6omo. But I
think wo hod better tiy to study her
and coax her along and not fob her off
as a very inferior person, or we shall
havo our hands full in earnest My
opinion is she has got that which will
Fave her and us, too a very high spirit,
which only needs opportunity to dovclop
into a remarkable thing, and, take my
word for it, mother, if we treat her as
a chieftaiuess, or princess, of whatever
she is, and not simply as a dusky person,
wo shall come off butter, aud she will
como off hotter in the long rim. She is
not darker than a Spaniard anyhow."
At this point Marion entered the
room, and her mother rehearsed briefly
to her what their talk'had boen. Marion
had had littlo sleep, and sho only lifted
her eyebrows at them at first. She was
in little mood of conciliation. Sho re
membered all at onco that at supper tho
evening before her sister-in-law had
said "Howl" to tho bntler aud had eat
en tho mayonnaiso-with a dessert spoon.
But presently, bocauso she saw they
waited for hor to speak, she said, with
a little flutter of maliciousness: x v
"Wouldn't It bo well for Richard
he has plenty of time, and we are also
likely to have it now to put us all
through a course of instruction for the
training of ohieftainosses? And when
do you think sho will be ready for a
drawing room her majesty Queen Vic
toria's or ours?"
"Marion!" said Mrs. Armour severe
ly, but Richard camo round to her, and
with his fresh, childlike humor put his
arm round her waist and added, "Ma
rion, I'd bo willing to hot (if I were in
the habit of betting) my Bhaky old pins
here against a lock of your hair that
yon may present her at any drawing
room ours or Queen Victoria's in two
years if wo go at it right, and it would
serve Master Frank very well if we
turned hor out something, after all. "
Mrs. Armour said almost eagerly: "I
wish it wero only possiblo, Richard.
And what you say is truo, I suppose
that sho is of rank in her own country,
whatever valuo that may ha've. "
Richard saw his ndvantago. "Well,
mother," ho said, "a chieftainess is a
chieftainess, aud I don't know but to
announoe her as such and"
"And bo proud of it, as it wero,"
put in Marion, "and pose her and niako
her a prize a Pocahontas, wasn't it?
and go on pretending world without
end!" Marion's voico was still slightly
grating, but there was in it, too, a faint
Bound of hope. "Perhaps, " sho said to
herself, "Richard is right. "
At this point the door opened, and
Lali entered, shown in by Colvin, hor
nowly appointed maid, and followed by
Mackenzie, and, -as wo said, dressed
still in her heathenish garments. Sho
had a strong senno of dignity, for she
stood still and waited. Perhaps nothing
could havo impressed Marion moTo. Had
Lali been subscrviout simply, an ontiro
ly passive, unintelligent crcaturo, she
would probably havo tyrannized over
her iii a soft, persistent fashion aud de
spisod her generally. But Mrs. Armour
and Marion saw that this stranger might
beoomo very troublesomo indeed if her
temper wore to havo, piny. Thoy wero
av;we of capacities for passion in those
dark eyoa, so musing, yet so active in
expression, which moved swirtiy trom
one object to another and then sudden
ly became resolute.
Both mother and daughter camo for
ward and held out tlieir hands, wish
ing her a plcasuut good morning, and
were followed by Richard and imme
diately by General Armour, who had
entered soon after her. Sho had becu
keen enough to read, if a littlo vaguoly,
behind tho scones, and her mind was
wakening slowly to tho peculiarity of
tho position she occupied. The place
awed her and had broken her rest by
perplexing her mind, and sho sat down
to tho breakfast table with a strange,
hunted look in her face. . But opposite
to her was a window opening to tho
ground, and beyond it wero the limes
and beeches and a wide, perfect sward
and far away a littlo lak, on which
swans and wild fowl fluttered.
Presmitly.ras sho sat silent, eating
little, her eyes lifted to tho window.
They flashed instantly, her face lighted
up with a weird kind of charm, aud
suddenly sho got to her feet with Indian
exclamations on her lips, and, as if un
conscious of them nil, went swiftly to
tho window and out of it, waving her
hands up and down once or twico to the
trees aud the sunlight
"What did she say?" snid Mrs. Ar
mour, rising with tho others.
"Sho said," replied Mackenzio as
sho hurried toward tho window, "that
they wero her beautiful woods, and
there wero wild birds flying and swim
ming in the water, as iii her own coun
try." By this time all wero at the window,
Richard arriving last, and the Indian
girl turned on thoni, her body all quiv
ering with excitement, laughed a low,
birdliko laugh, and then, clapping her
hands abovo her head, she swung round
and ran like a deer toward tho lake,
shaking her head back as an animal
does when fleeing from his pursuers.
Sho would scarcely have been recogniz
ed as the saino placid, speechless wom
an in a blanket who sat with folded
hands day after day on tho Aphrodite.
The watchers turned and looked at
each other iu wonder. Truly their task
of civilizing a savago would not hick
iu interest. Tho old general was butter
pleased, however, at this display of ac
tivity and excitement than nt yester
day's taciturnity. Ho loved spirit, evou
if it had to bo subdued, and ho thought
on tho instant that he might possibly
come to look upon the fair savago as an
actual aud not a nominal daughter-in-law.
Ho had a keen appreciation of
courago, and ho thought ho saw iu her
face, as she turned upon them, a look
of defiance or daring, and nothing could
have got at his nature quicker. If the
case had not been so near to his own
hearthstone, ho would havo chuckled.
As it was, ho said good humoredly that
Mackenzio and Marion should go and
bring hor back. But Mackenzio was al
ready at thatduty. Mrs. Armour had
had tho prosenco of mind to send for Col
vin, but presently, when tho general
spoke, she thought it better that Marion
should go and counseled returning to
breakfast and not making the matter of
too much importance. This they did,
Richard very reluctantly, whilo Ma
rion, rather pleased than not at tho
spirit shown by tho strango girl, ran
away ovor the grass toward tho lake,
whoro Lali had now stopped.
Thcro was a little bridgo at one point
where the lake narrowed, and Lali, evi
dently seeing it all at once, went to-
ward it and ran up on it, standing
poised above tho water about the mid
dlo of it. For an instant an unpleasant
possibility camo into Marion's nimd
supposo tho excited girl ii'iendcd sui
cido I She shivered as sho tiSugbt of it,
and yet Sho put that horribly cruel
and selfish thought away fom her with
an indignant word at herself. Sho had
passed Mackenzio and come first to the
lake. Hero she slackened and waved
her hand playfully to tho girl, so as hot
to frighten her, and thou with a forced
laugh camo up panting on tho bridgo
aud was presently by Lali's side. Lali
eyed her a little furtively, but seeing
that Marion was much inclined to bo
pleasant sho nodded to her, said some
Indian words hastily and spread out
her hands toward the water. As sho did
so Marion noticed again tho beauty of
thoso hands and the graceful character
of the gesture, so much so that sho for
got the flat hair, and the unstayed body,
and the rather broad feet, and the deli
cate duskiness, which hud bo worked on
her in imagination and in fact the even
ing before. Sho put her hand kindly on
that long slim hand stretched out beside
her, and because sho knew not what
else to speak and because the tonguo is
very pcrverso at tinine, saying the oppo-
sito of what is expected, she herself
blundered out, "How, how, Lali!"
Perhaps Lali was as much surprised
at tho geniark as Marion herself and
certainly very niuoh more delighted,
The soVdsd of those familiar words,
spoken., by. accident, as thoy were, opoued
the way to .a better understanding as
nothing elso could possibly have done.
Marion was annoyed at herself and yet
amused too. If her mind had been per
footly assured regarding Captain Vi-
dall, it is probablo that then and there a
peculiar, a genial, comradeship would
have been formed. As it was, Marion
found this little event more endurable
than she expected. Sho also found that
Lali, when she laughed in pleasant ao
knowledgment of that "How" had m
markably whito and regular teeth. Iu
deed Muriou Armour began to discover
soino estimable points iu the appearance
of hor savago sister-in-law. Marion re
marked to herself that Lali might be a
rather striking person if sho wero dress
od, us her mother said, in Christian gar
ments and could speak tho English lan
guage well and was somebody else's

At this point Mackenzio came breath
lessly to tho bridge and called out a
bhsirply to Lali, rebuking her. In this
Mr.cken7.i0 made a mistake, for not only
did Lali draw herself up with consider
able dignity, but Marion, noticing tho
masterful naturo of tho touo, instantly
paid: "Mackenzio, you must remember
that you we speaking to Mrs. Francis
Armour, and that her position iii Gen
eral Armour s houso is the samo as
mino. I hopo it is not necessary to say
anything moro, Mackenzie."
Mackenzio flushed. Sho was a sensi
ble womnu. She knew that she had done
wrong, and she said very promptly: "I
am very sorry, niiws. I was flustered,
and I expect I haven't got used to speak
ing to to Mrs. Armour as I'll be sure
to do in the futuro. "
As she spoke two or three deer came
trotting out of tho botches down to the
lakeside. If Lali was pleased aud ex
cited beforo, sho was overwhelmed now.
Her breath camo iu quick gasps. She
laughed, sha tossed her hands, sho seem
ed to become dizzy with delight, and
presently, as if this new link with and
reminder of her past had moved her as
one littlo expects a savago heart is mov
ed, two tears gathered in her eyes, then
slid down her cheeks unheeded and dried
there iu the sunlight as she still gazed
at tho deer. Marion, at first surprised,
was now touched, as she could not have
thought it possiblo concerning this wild
creature, aud her hand went out and
caught Lali's gently. At this genuine
act of sympathy, instinctively fult by
Lali the stranger in a strange land,
husbanded and yet a widow there
camo a flood of tears, and dropping on
her knees she leaned against the low
railing of tho bridgo and wept silently.
So passionless was her grief it seemed
tho moro pathetic, and Marion dropped
on her kuoos beside her, put her arm
round her shoulder aiid said: "Poor
girl I Poor girll"
At that Lali caught her hand and
held it, repeating after her tho words:
' 'Poor girl I Poor girl !"
Sho did not quite understand them,
but sho remembered that onco just be
fore sho parted from her husband at tho
great lakes ho had said those very
words. If tho fates had apparent ly gi ven
things into Frank Armour's hands when
he sacrificed this girl to his reveugo,
they wero evidently inclined to play a
gamo which would eventually defeat
his purpose, wicked as it bad been in
effect if not in absoluto motive. What
tho cud of this attempt to engraft tho
Indian girl upon tho strictest conven
tion of English social life would have
been had her introduction not been at
Greyhopo, whero faint likenesses to her
past surrounded her, it is hard to con
jecture. But from present nppoarances
it would seem that Bichard Armour
was not wholly n falso prophet, for the
savago had shown herself that morning
to possess in their crudeucss sonio strik
ing qualities of character. Given char
acter, many things aro possible, even to
thoso who are not of the elect.
This was tho beginning of better
things. Lali seemed to tho Armours not
quite bo impossible now. Had she l en
of tho very common order of Indian,
"pure and simple, "tho task had re
solved itself into making a common
lavage into a vory common European.
But whatever Lali was it was abun
dantly evident that sho must bo reckoned
with at all points, and that she was
moro likely to become a very startling
figure in the Armour household than a
mere encumbrance to bo blushed for,
whose eternal absence were preferable
to her company.
