And cares fur naught but trumpet-sounds of fame. •

The lord of Pommeroy Abbey—though only

lord"—had four sous, Guy, Rupert, George,
and Leone; Guy of course being the heir:—
The two younger we need nut matice just now,

The bi'enkfast tattle was Spread in - theabbey

for her father and brothers. She' wits tall, as
thfy were; her complexion.iallow, though not
sat white as Guy's; indeed, Guy imparted the
idea of a 111(10 whoSe'color had been- mown
tarily scared fromt him by fright; and her hair' ,
woe darkerthan theirs. She was named Joan,.
after a.-Dame Joan.. Os Pommeroy, who had _the reign of .Ring John, and

which probably was only one of those flights
.of fancy some people delight to indulge In,
since no portrait of Dame JOOll iiilll extant
now, and it did not appear that one ever-had
been. Miss Pommeroy had returned but the
night before from a SLY 1/100111.4' visit to 0 mar

dows, looking out at lho scene she had n.t
seen so long. Itepert entered

I began co think thaws wore going to be pre

"Rupert!" interrupted Miss Penneroy, in
a tone of rebuke. , ,
"Until I found that the scent lay in a
formt direction," continued the unmoved Ito
pup. "I was mistaking the affair altogether;
while I fancied that the widower tied the wid
ow might be doing a little courting on their
own account, it appears that they were only
courting for. their children." . •
Miss l'ommeroy turned her eyes full u on
I her brother, asking an explanation as pl my
us eyes could. But Rupert was bilent. .• 'ell

"The. son and-heir is to setße,: cried itu•

"Guy cannot akTord it," again exclaimed
Miss Pourimeroy. . "You have all been too

Rupert had opened one of the. narrow caSe:
ments, and tint his head su, whistling to Mao'
of his pOinters,,which WA! belove,
,With the

"Rupert 'RupOt exolaitned his sister,
petulantly,'stamping her :foot, "you know
when I want to' hear a thing I musk hear it.
1 say, will Alice Wylae.have Guy ?I':
Rupert drew in his head. ! , You had better'
ask that of Guy himself."
"Is it true that: elm has so much ? It was
.given out that they were rich, but twenty-five
thousand`is a great deal."
Tliat is true, Her father was 'in India; ,a.

they make fortunes at, out there; -and she
"She -will never have Guy—she is too beau

"Pretty Women often marry ugly men, and
—. Met 'Joao,'" broke off Rupert; "hero
lie comes, the 'ion-and-heir."
Guy Pommeroy. entered the room. Ills
temper had made. him not, loved by his hro
thers end sisters, but his father doted on hith;
in ,Guy he saw his son-and-heir: . and his cow
tibia allusions to his being such, bait caused
it to he a by-word of ridicule as attached to I
Guy. Haughty, arrogant, and fearful spend;
thrifts, the Poinnieroys had outrun their in-'
come; tint this was not known to the world;
aMl'Guy had reached the age of eight and
twenty without thought...of marrying, when
the White House changed its tenants, and be ,
came iohabitell by the widow and daughter of.
Mr. Wylde.
But not
. for tub sake of her fortune did Guy
Pommeroy think of sacrificing his liberty; the
Pommeroys were of that class who love the
liberty and license of a single life; that the
money may have added weight to the Induce
meat was probable, but the fresh beauty of
Alice had caught his eye and his heart When
those cold natures, such aS was Guy's, do love;
they hive - passionately ; and with an imitos•
sioned fervor that is not often equalled. had
Guy Pommeroy reamed to love Alice Wylde.
"Guy," began Miss Pommeroy, with little
regard to his feelings or to her. own good 108.0.
ners, "Rupert. says you want to Marry - Miss
Wylde. Will she have you?"
A hot scarlet fluSh illumined Guy's white
cheek,. proving of itself how very deep -his
love had gone.. lie drew himself up haught
ily. "Let Rupert concern himself With his
fishing and his shooting, and his other- , -mote
questionable—sports; but let him pot concern
himself with me." - •
lie rang due hell as he spoke, and his di
ther's personal attendant entered - Jerome,
faithful serving-man of fifty-years. " The
' lord breakfasts in his rood," said Cloy."
sir„ I know, replied Jerome:- ”.1 - 1e
I has slept badly." .
Miss Pommeroy had turned to the break
,fast-table.--She could' not domineer-over Guy.
as she sometimes did over Rupert ; not that
the latter heeded her domineering. for he was'
.good-tempered and careless. Once, When Guy
had declined to tell her something she Wished
to knee", and she had teased him to anger, he'
struck her a blow, anti her-face retained the
mark for days. She said no more to Guy now,
but in the course lor the day she questioned
her father:. was Guy to marry Mien Wylde?
Mr. Pommeroy.laoked up. "Who has made
you so wise? "
"It is no business of Rupert's, or of any
one's. Nothing is settled:"
;'Neither will, it be,". exclaimed Miss rorti
mertiy;.Speaking what she thoUght. Ido
not suppose she would have Guy." ' •
"Not have Guy !"- uttered Mr. Pommeroy
"I can tell you that ah :inhume with the fu
ture lord of Pommeroy is what many a young
lady, far-higher in position toil lineage than
she, would kneel for. She and Mrs. Wylde
see it in the right light and ore eager for it.'.:
So far as Mr's. Wylde went, Mr. Poinmeroy
judged rightly. She was an ambitious wo
man, dwelling too much upon the'advantages
accruing from firnily," as those, not well
born, are Apt to do. In Guy l'ommeroy she
saw all that be desired ; anicto make
Alice the future "lady of Pommeroy," was
'the &emu which tired her ambition.
. .
But, if Guy was courted t 0 the White House,
Rupert was -not. Ile y had at one time gone
thither as 1111101 as his. Itrother, but a faiul
and very disagreeable suspicion had ditwued
suddenly upon Mrs 51 'y and that was,
that her daughter was getting to enjoy the so•
ciety of the handsome Rupert more than that
of Guy. Never, from that hour, wea,Rupert
Ptintmeroy admitted within the doors; call
when he would, there Was an oxonse readyl -
Nirs, Wylde Was out, or Mrs. Wylde was-i;n.
The day passed un to tho evening, and the
family dined alone, a sinnewlna 'notable eir
-cunist,ince, tar the 'tidier - Way generally rich
in guests. Rupint yoao from the table when
his sister did, and - strolled out; Guy remain - -
ea with his father.
"Where-liawyou been all the afternoon ?"
demanded the lord. "At the White House?"
called in thceb," replied Guy.
"When do you mean to bring matters to a
close? Speak to her off-hand, boy, add don't
be afraid. I never knew that IL Poitimeroy
could be scared by a woman,.
Guy Puunneroy's livid face turned scarlet,
a far deeper scarlet than that (37,11Tid 4 up by

"Jerome ,would fear his own liliatiOW, if

Rupert strolled leisurely along until he was
beyond view of the abbey. and then he mend
ed his pace and wont as if he were walking
for a _wager. It was a lovely summer's even
ing. and the setting run threwits red and
'golden light across the heavy trees itithe dis
tance, Cutting across some fields, by a shel
bored path, he emerged from the back of the
White House, and entered its• garden by
I small door: '

The Napoleon Dyna•tjrnt. St. Dente
Workinen have been engaged for -more than
a year in this Old cathedral, mt they were
supposed to be employed simply . in its resto •
ration. -It now appears, however, that all the
rich tombs of the_dend monarchs aro to be
brought out of the ignoble corners in which
"they have been etowed away for centuries, in
the basement. of the church, to be placed on
the- floor above. _ The 't Napoleon dpnasty,"
(commencing with the Duke of ReichstadL)
are to occupy_the transept. Napoleon IWill
occupy a magnificent tomb, constructed from
the materials et the Invalides;nnder the lull
branch of the transept, and apart 'from the
rest ; the Bourbons, and all-_ those already
buried in the basement, will bo.placed in the
side chapels ,of the nave-and the choir, in a
position infinitely more appropriate than that
now occupied by them, for there is not a t•re-.
cur at Pails, Of moderato wealth, who does not
bury himself more grandly than aro these an
cient monarchs and seignors.' It has been a
subject-of surmise these five years—ever since
the tomb of the Invidides was finished, wily
the body of - Napoleon was not placed in the
sarcophagus. The explanation is noel evi
-1 dent.
.Napoloon hasn't this time had the
intention. of - placing hia . uncle, himself, and
late dynasty, under the sacred roof of St. Den
is, among the kings who ruled France by di
vine right; and therefore it was not deemed
proper to place, him formally in the grand
crypt of. the Invalides, to AM removed again.
Thus the body has been kept hidden. away
ever since its arrival from Si. lieleutb_irra
side chapel, to which the public have never
hr ‘ en admitted. When the cathedral of St
Denis. is prepared for the change, the body
the Duke of Reiclishith will no doubt be de
livered up by Austria, and then the two bodies
—father andson-,will be carried to St. Denis,
in the midst ot' one of those magnificent page
ants which appear necessary to the life 'of tla
French people.
