"All I can say Is, It's a duece of a
bore!" exlalmed Philip Ulount, a mnurt,
good-looking lawyer, who was on very
good terms with himself, whose age
mltfht bo six or seven and twenty, to hl3
particular chum, Tom Marling, a stout,
rubicund, horsey stock broker, perhaps
a few years older.
"Well, It Is rather hard lines," re
turned Marling, sympathetically.
"If thry had given me timely notice
I might have managed to get down to
the Orange, but such an abrupt Invito
looks as If Owen Dashwood did not
want me down there."
This dialogue wus going on In the
private office of Mr. Marling, where the
two men wore discussing a light
luncheon of oysters and stout, having
a little time to spare at the goneral re
lllount was yet only a clerk In the
old established lirm of Ardell & Son;
but that lirm was now reduced to the
surviving son, who was Blount's ma
ternal uncle, and a childless widower.
Marling was a very well oft bachelor,
much given to the good things of this
life and Blount's special friend.
"Down there" Indicated a picturesque
old place called Varlcy Orange, near
Maidenhead, at present tenanted by a
"My Dear Nephew, I om
charming widow, whose charms were
enhanced by the possession of nn In
come which enabled her to rent such a
residence. Here she gave delightful
"Friday to Monday" parties, Invita
tions to which people fished for eagerly.
Gwendoline Dashwood was the
daughter of Mr. Ardell'a deceased
wife's sister, his ward, and the mistress
of his house. Blount raither Imagined
his uncle wished to make a match be
tween his nephew and niece, and was
quite sure of his own wishes on the
eubject; for Gwen Dashwood was a
bright, attractive brunteet, with big,
brown eyes that could say a great deal
and he paid assiduous court to the
"Were you asked?" continued Blount.
"Lord,, no! I'm not at all up to the
mark of Mrs. Cholmondely Morton's
parties, not elegant enough by Jong
"BettiT ask you than that beast Ev
erard. I'hate the fellow."
"Blount, you're a fool!"
! "No more than my neighbors."
"Itather less. In a general way; bu'
you are a fool about that cousin o'

much too grim and sour and blacl
browed to be a dangerous rival. Br
Bides, that Indlnn forestry nppolnt
ment of his la no great thing. And the
Miss Dashwood is not the girl to thin)
of a man who Is obliged to live In th
"I'm not so sure, Marling. Everari
has an Infernal cool air of command
ond superiority that Imposes on wo
men, and Gwen has a dash of romance
in her. I fancy she thinks or sus
pects that I am what Bhe would call
'low-minded' because I have the sense
to have an eye to the main chance; but
I flatter myself, I've been making way
with her lately. There's nothing goes
down with Uiat sort of girl like an air
of being hopelessly gone upon her, and,
In fact, I am rather! It's such un
common luck to have a fancy for the
right young women."
"Is she the right one?"
"She Is. You see my uncle Is deuced
fond of her, and pretty sure to leave
her Bhe bigger half of his worldly
goods, though he likes me, but If we
marry, we'll have the whole."
"Admirable reasoning! But If you
are. making way, you may snap your
lingers at Everard."
"I don't know. I got away early last
(Week and found him at tea with Gwen,
tete-a-tete and after 'sitting out' with
Mm for an hour In the conversatory
at Lady Dalrymple'g ball, when I went
to -claim my waltz, he said, as she
took my arm: You must be sure to
write at once, remember, in a dictato
rial tone,- as If she were his wife, by
Marling laughed. "Well, I know he
Isn't one of the Grange party." y
"How?" ejaculated Blount. r .
Instend of replying, Marling rum
maged among some papers which lay"
In a square wicker receptable on his
knte-hble table; and tossed over a mote
to his guest. It was dated the .previous
B'at'urday. fromthe "East India Club,','
and ran thus:
"Dear Marling: I am not going down
to the Grange, nevertheless, I cannot
keep my appolt tment on Monday. I have
other and better ilFh to fry and am
obliged to run over to the continent on
Monday night. Shull write when I know
time of my return. Yours truly.
"Ah, then he could not have gone to
Mrs. Morton's," said Blount, with a flgh
of relief. "I can't think how Owen puts
up with his overbearing swagger."
"Come now, Blount, he doesn't swag
ger." "I suppose Gwon will be home to din
ner a:t seven. I think I'll go and dine
with my uncle In case he feels lonely.
He was not at the office today, and I'm
not supposed to know that his darling
wJll return to cheer him."..
"Prudent young chap, you are! Go
on and prosper, Blount, my boy."
The aspiring young lawyer carried
out his Intention and presented himself
to his uncle a few minutes before seven
In accurate evening dress, a dainty
flower In his buttonhole and a smile
upon his lips. Altogether a handsome,
gentleman-like 'looking young fellow,
and steady, decidedly steady, thought
Mr. Ardell, who was spelling over an
evening paper somewhat disconsolately
In his big ind bounteously ornamented
Delighted to See You.'
Mr. Ardell -w.-isa -woll-nreserved man
of perhaps sixty-five very precise and
a little exacting, with severe nations
as regarded conduct, principle, Integrity
and such like old-fashioned laws of life.
"Ah, Philip! This la an unexpected
plnasure. Glad to see you."
"Thank you, eir. Thought you might
like my company, as probably Gwen
may not return and "
"Or jiosslbly that you might find her
here? Eh, Philip? Very natural, my
dear boy. Very naltural. Still your Im
pulse Is somewhat prophetic."
Mr. Ardeill stretched out his hand for
a yellow envelope which lay on a small
table beside (him. "I fully expected
Gwendoline to luiicheon,"and not feel
ing quite the thing, a little liverish In
fae t, I had ordered James to meet the
12.30 itraJn from H to look after her
luggage and find her a cab, when, about
11.45, I received this," handing a tele
gram to Blount, who read: "Shall be
home tonight. G. D."
"That means by the last train, I sup
pose," said Blount.
"No doubt. Very thoughtful of her,
knowing she was expected and that I
should nend to merit every train till she
arrived. She sends this to keep my
nlnd nit rest."
"When is the last train due?"
"About 10.20," returned Mr. Ardell.
"Then I shall go and meet her and
ring her back. I noed not leave you
-111 9.50. A hansom will rattle across
ho park to the Great Western In twen
"Yes, do, Philip. Gwendoline will be
;lad to see you. There is a Bmdshaw
n the dining room. We'll make a note
f the time."
"Dinner Is on the table," said James,
he solemn man out of livery, who ruled
me lower regions.
Philip Blount followed Mr. Ardell
down stairs contentedly enough,
though, being somewhat given to sus
picion and self-tormenting, he debated
that telegram In his own mind Why
did she not say "shall return by such
or such a train?" Why did she leave
things In "such a vague condition?
James might have been dancing at
tendance at Paddlngton from 6.30 on,
leaving his functions to be Indifferent
ly performed By the housemaid and re
ducing Mr. Ardell to the inconvenience
of a female waiter.

of no small importance in Blount's eyes

and James departed a Bhort pause en

Philip rose and went to the table
whence he returned with Bradshaw
and another book, handsomely bound
In deep red with gold letters and dec
orations. "You are right," he said, "the R

shaw to his uncle and continued: "I
see you have Everard's book here.
'Life in the Wild Woods.' I don't fancy
him in print doesn't give me the idea
of a writing man."
"I have not read the work," returned
his uncle, with a tinge of disdain in his
tone. "That copy was presented to
Gwendoline. I was rather annoyed at
her accepting it, though I do not very
well see how she sould have refuced tt.
But Mr. Everard Is not a mun I like.
He Is pretentious and dictatorial. In
fact, Inclined to take, liberties, or I
should say, he presumes on some con
nection with old friends of Gwendo
line's to come here much oftener than
I like, and assume a familiar tone with
my niece of which I totally disapprove."
"Yes, my dear uncle, I have noticed
It also, and It makes me indignant.
However, he has gone to the continent
"Why, yes, I know. He wrote to
Gwendoline explaining why he could
not go to this party and mentioned that
he was going abroad, a very unneces
sary proceeding, as I told my niece."
"And what did she say?"
"Well, she laughed and said that for
all I knew, It might be very necessary."
"A curious nnswer," said Blount un
easily. "What do you make of It?"
"What I? Oh, nothing. It is really
unimportant, only I fancy that Mr.
Everard aspires to a matrimonial al
liance with us. rather an audacious
project on his part."
"I should think it was!" cried Blount.
