But deep and wide. with a troubled tide,

"Georgia 1 I fear you must put off

that. and take the governess with you ?"
Mrs. Elandereou raised her large han4-
same eyes to ber husbatall's face, an 4
stopped in the act of filling her break
fast cups. "What can you mean,
Walter ?" she said slowly. "I do-not
quite understand. Why must Igo to
Brighton. without you ?"
"Because, my dear. I must ran down
to Scotland instead. My mOther wants
"0, your mother !" ind •a slight
clund came over her unusually calm
fade. She had not met with any dbl. -
appointments in her married life as yet,
and she bad been looking forward j for
some time to this visit to Brighton.,:
"Yes; she Writes that she wonhiSke '
me to go e ldown as soon as I can."
"Is ab ill, or what ?" Does she give
no reason ?"
"Well, no; I can't , pay she does; but
I imagine somehow it something
about Clare."
"Clare I dare say it, is. What is
she dOing now ? Of course, you kpow,
Walter, that I never iiiterfere in your
private family concerns; but in my op
inion, yon should strongly advise your
mother just to give her her own way.
A very short time of nursing in an in
&Mary would completely cure her of
that whim. She is not at all the kind of
girl for that sort of thing, brought up
as she has been; every one yielding to
her, and running wild all over your
father's estate followed• by half a dozen
dOgs, and getting her own way in every
thing. I believe it would do her a great
,deal of good to go ai a nurse to an in
"I have no , doubt you areitight; but
lam certain my mother' would never
agree to it. Let me see.. This is
Thursday. I could 'go down 'on gator
dar, and be back again by Wednesday
morning early.. That wuSld• - give me
three clear days there, and _bring „me
home in time to take yoir to Brighton
on therTbursday. . That was the day
you intended going, at anyrate."
And so it was arranged. Mr. San
derson traveled down to Scotland the,
following Saturday, in' obedience to his'
mother's summons. He had already
decided that some new freak of his sister
was at the bottom of the whole thing,
and therefore, though annoying to his
mother, not likely to at all difficult to
manage. 'A
"It all comes, fromiirle being brought
up at home. If they could go to public
schools like boYe, and get all. the non
sense taken out of them, it would be a
thousand times better. • A girl like
Clara, living constantly; at 'home with
her mother and governess, is sure to
take the bt into tier own keeping. and
rule over everybody. 1 I have Lalf a.
mind to br:ng here back with me, and
keep her until she falls in love with
some one.. That would be the best
tonic for her restlessness."
When thhi long railway journey was
ended, be found himself standing on
the platform of the dreg little side
station, being bugged ind'embratied in
the most affectionste,ausd open manner
by his sister, a tall handsome girl, who
utterly disregarded the presence of a
country woman, who, setting down the
largest of her many weds and bun
dles, stood looking on with undisguised
cariosity at this manifestation of affec
tion amongst the "quality."
"You darling old buy I I'm so aw
ful* glad to see you," said. Clare. "It
is too like of you to run down and see
us in this way. Come along. i Mamma
will be in II fevei until we pt batik again;

"He is a cousin of Mrs. Monkton i and

Clare met him there last year, , when
those revival meetings were going on.

to nursing, etc. He was down -Vera

"Well, Clare, I'll sleep on it, as the
saying goes; and to-morrow I will have
a talkwith you again. ; Be sure that
I will do my best for your happiness.
And now, let us say good night."
Next morning. Clue came early into
the breakflist room; but her brother
evinced rio . ,corresponding activity; and
when. he did make hir appearitnce, the
presence her 'bother prevented all
renewal of ibir last night's conversa

possible until far on in the afternoon.

Walter, we must send off a - telegram
from the station to-morrow, and then

- "No; we will -not telegraph, dear.

And so the visit was thus , arranged
and carried .out. .The morigna train
took them off; and in due time; after
some changes and delays, landed theth
at Reekton; a singularly well named
'place, Waltei thought, but refrained
from saying; for he did not wish 'to
prejudice his sister in any degree. A The
fine bright morning had been gradially
becoming more and More overcast, and
had 110111 , fairly;settled_into one-of thote,
still wet days - which are to some tem
peraments peculiarly depressing. Ex
cept the station• master and a boy, nUt
a soul was to •be seen; any loungers
that might otherwise have been 'there
being kept away by the double event of
a steady rain and of its being the din
ner honr.'
"Ask if this is Reekton, Walter; per
haps we have made a mistake."
Walter obeyed, and came back, say -
tog: "That village-there at the end of
the lane is Reekton. It is unfortunate
that it has . turned out such a wet day.
Shall I send the boy down to the inn
and see if we can get .a cab or convey
ance of some sort?"
"Yes, do, Walter, while I remain
under the shed here,"
In minute or twO her-brother came
back with the intelligence that there
was nocab or conveyance to be. *ad.
`There had been a wedding in the Vil
lage a few nights before, and the only
chaise it possessed had been nearly bro
ken-to pieces in the course of the 'fes

to walk, and the station-master direct

may be from home?' .
"That would be the finishing stroke
to our bad hick! Very likely we shall
find he is away.' _
However,, it seemedr as if fate meat
to be kind after all, for on knocking at
the deor of the helm pointed tout to

informed them that Mr. Moffat ' , was at
home. "I'm not sure if be is down yet;

On a side-table was lying a it!range

The window had evidently not been
opened that day, and an of from

oaths and squabbles that passed among
them. Mr. Moffat was some time in
making his appearance, but when be
did, be was much more presentable,
more like the man Clara , had :seen and
believed in, at het own home. But his
shaven face and correct clerical costume
nails too late, and he was sensible
enough to see the matter in its true
light. Nothing could re-establish him
again on the pinnacle to which Clara,
in herunourbed imagination and secret
love of excitement under any form, had
raised him.
On getting home Walter explained to
his mother that she had no longer-'any
thing to fear; and next day wrote to
Mr. Moffat, by his sister's desire, break

telephoned to his wife to expect him

Some Remarkon the Barber.
The barber, children, is of an ektinct
-species. The hair-dresser and tonso
rial artist of the present day are sup
posed, however, to be descendants- of
the barber in direct line. '
The barber is a treacherous creature:
ge is never to be depended .upon. He •
'has been kniiwn to cut his best friends.
He is remarkably sharp in a business
transaction, and he will shave you if
you give . him ,a • chance' In fact,
shaving may be said to be his business. .
The barber is a strapping fellow, and
is ever ready to razor row. I have
freqtrentli teen him take a man by the
new without the least provocation.
He always wants his hone way, and
is already fora brush. •
He has his shortcom(b)ings, to be
sure, and is ipt to stir up your dander;
but be has a very smooths tongue, and
knows how to lay on the lather.
- 4 can't say ; that. he was ever chatted
with murder, bat thousands of people
dye in his shop - yearly. -
Formerly the barber was a surgeon •
also, and used to be paid for bleeding
his customers. Nowadays he draws
blood without extra charge.
The barber sees &great many affect
ing scenes.. There is a great, deal - of
parting going on every day inisis shop.
I suspect children are -afraid of -the
barber; at all events they never call at -
his shop, hen their mothers send them
out after shavings.
The barberis atrue homcepath. He
believes in e 'doctrine of like cures
like. When he would remove. the bris
tles from a man's face ho always rubs t
bristles on-to it. -
The barber is a very secretive fellow.
You will find locks. eyerywhere about ,
his place.
