P., line! ac cepted un Invltullon from his political frleml. Sir l!Hrir Howard, to his coun try house. Ah the vlKit vus more polit ical than prlvate.Mr. Markhani brought hlH private anil political secretary .John Warrington, with him. An important measure was before the house, and a. division was expected to take place Im lnetliately. Sir (ieorse represented land. Mr. Markhnm capital; and War rington knew more r bruit both than either. Kesldes, Mr. Mark hum wan vicariously engaged on a work dealing In bimetallism. Warrington had ideas on the subject, and Mi. Alarkham be lieved In these so far that lie hail de cided to put his own name to them. Warrington, lie exftiauieu in pir George, "Is a deuced clever fellow. He works up my speeches: you pee I am very busy; and upon my soul I could not do them better myn?lf." ' This statement, was scrupulously true. Mr. Markhnm ami his secretary achieved Immediate and merited un popularity with Sir Oenrge Howard's household and Rllests. Markhnm was ignorant. Ill-bred, ami arrogant. The secretary was a man of undoubted natural gifts he was hlgrhly educated and had a line literary style but he was lacking In the Ha voir vlvre that makes civilization worth while. A strong: character, he wanted that pre cise mental adjustment necessary to those who make the best of life as it Is and leave the conduct of life as It ought to be to remote posterity. Warrington's apparent Indifferences to his own and his chief's soc ial failure was pure af fectation. He1 was miserable and tried to ulsguise his emotion by an overdone cynclsm and a preposterous interest In bimetallism. He worked night and day at Mr. Markham's book with only an hour off in the afternoons for pistol practice -his sole recreation. Miss Marlon Howard, Sir George's only child and mistress of his house, .was at first civil to tlie private and political secretary.' It was her duty. Bimetallism she earnestly believed to be a lKre, though a harmless one, but when she discovered that the binietal list was also a socialist she was not sure that she ought nut to send for the po- FACIAL HUMOURS Prevented by yf Coticura Soap.

Henceforth there must be a great taboo, Warrington wus a dangerous diameter. Hut the. great division wns still in the future. The dangerous character must perforce to be tolerated for the preHent. A committee of pub lic safety was meantime organized. Its president was a public school boy and Its action was worthy of its president. One evening the secretary was stroll ing through the grounds thiiiKing about bimetallism mid other things. In a dark corner of a' shrub-bordered path lie stumbled over the oustretched legs of a mull lying on the grass. War rington apologized, but the man wus not appeased. His coarse, face, enor mous lunacies, and whole set-up could hardly be mnvaken; he was a prize fighter, or should have been. .He would accept nn apology. "I have apologized." Warrington said. "What more do you wnnt'.'" "I want to know if. as you thinks yourself a man, you'll put up your lives'." "Ni." said Warrington: 'f won't. Hut 1 11 tell you what 1 will do." He put his hand into his hip pocket and snatched out a short, black object with a barrel, w hich he pointed at the man's face, "if you udvance a single step I'll put a bullet in your skull." vThe man fell back. There was a slight movement In the shrubbery. Warrington noticed it. "Observe," he said sharply. "You think I could not hit you in the head In this light? See me take that branch off the v!" He pointed the pistol straight at the densest growth of un derwood. There was a hasty scramble and the sound of running footsteps. The pugilist aain gave ground. "flu!" said Warrington. "And If ever you moles: me asain I'll lire first and think the matter over afterwards." In the smoking-room that evening. Warrington was reading and moking a cigar, when young I'hurlle Telford, the president of the committee ex clairiied: "What do you think of a sweep who draws a revolver on an unarmed man?" "Thnt he Is a sweep," came so unani mously it was evident the scene had been rehearsed, Warrington uid out appear to hear. "What do you say. Warrington," Tel ford asked, pointedly. "It deepens," replied the secretary, "upon what the unarmed man was do ing or going to do,- If he was inoffen sive the man with the gun was a crim inal rutllian." "Suppose the unarmed man was of fensive?" "Then the man with the gun was an ass." "For what'" "For not lirlng." "O. indeed! Perhaps, tinder the same circumstances, you would have llred." "Why. certainly." "That's curious," broke In two or three. "For thes say that you yourself were molested this evening, anil that you didn't lire." "i was molested, as you say, but II wasn't necessary to fire, fortunately for me, as I had not a gun." " won't haggle over the word 'gun.' It 1r certain you had a pistol." "O dear, no," said Warrington, knocking the ash from hie cigar. "I had only a plpecnse." y The? subject was dropped,ind with It the private secretary. Vwn Miss Howard received the reMirt of the com mittee she laughed immoderately. So they hud bad their trouble for nothing. At the same time the girl did nut for give tin secretary certain sins of omis sion. He had treated her from the first with marked indifference. Still she was glad of the overthrow of the com mittee She. wanted to be her own ex ecutive. .Next morning Miss Howard received a written apolli-ution fro the secre tary, lie required his meals served In the room where he worked; otherwise he would have them provided In the village. Tills was a terrible dilemma. To give way to a private and contu macious secretary was not pleasant. But to ullow u stranger within the gates to seek In the. village what it must be presumed had been dented In the castle was unthinkable. Miss .Marion did not forirct this lo the man wno nan set me irauiuons or a inou Kiind years at defiance. Warrington had his nienls In the room given over to him. They were splendid feasts, lb ate what he required of the simpler foods mill ignored the mystic delicacies. He made good progress with Mr. Mark ham's book on bimetallism. Miss Howard told her best girl friend that she began to hate the secretary heartily on bis own merits. She often met him as he was'cnterinrr or leaving the castle for his dally walk. When she was wearing a new or particularly attractive gown she was certain to meet him. This coincidence was with out exceed Inn. The secretary's tired face began to brighten lis she passed. Her antipathy' was really less violent than she had described to her frii'nd. But he was still contumacious. He had not yet bent the knee and did not seem likely to do so. The mistress of the ensile was going on u round of visits. She was beau tifully dressed. It was the secretary's hour for "knocking off." Hut be did not knock off at oil that day.

She only waited a moment; just long enough to leave the breath of a delicate perfume and the recollection of a charming face liguiv and costume with the secretary. He lookeil up as she was going out with a short apology for her presence. He hail been working hard thul day. "Thank you," he said, quietly. "Kor what?" she asked, surprised. "Kor letting me see you in that dress. It helps me with this;" lie indicated the muss of manuscript on the table. 'It is kind of you. 1 hope yon will have a pleasant day" "Do you dare to say," she cried, "that, I came here to exhibit myself?" A chunge came over his face a change so midden and so ugly that she stopped sharply. "I beg your pardon." he said, coldly. "It Is altogether my fault. I thought It would have given you pleasure to know that you hud done a kindly act, even though you did It unconsciously. 1 am sorry that you ure angry with me for being grateful. 1 shall not offend you again." He' arose and preceded her to the door as confidently as If the house were his own. Ami he bowed her out with a dignified courtesy which he could not have cooled if a. thousand dancing masters had posed for him. His griev ance lent him grace. She said "good afternoon" frigidly. He returned her salutation with studied politeness. They did not meet again for several days. To be concluded. WELSBACil LIGHT Special!
