Relieving Guard—March 4th, 1884
Came the relief. `• What sentry, ho I
How passed the night through thy long waiting?"
"Cold, cheerless, dark—as may befit
The hours before the dawn is breaking.
No sight, no sound?" No; nothing nave—
no plover from the marshes calling;

An hour ago, a Star woe falling."
" A star? There's nothing strange in that."
'• No, nothing: but, shove the thicket,
Somehow it .crewed to mu that God

When that long "banquet scene" was
at an end, and the ladies left the room, I
found myself, by the retirement of old
Lady Salteith, next my hearty straight
forward manly friend Jack Fortescuc,
with whom I had already exchanged a
nod behind the old lady's back. I was
very glad to see him. We talked about
all sorts of things; and presently got up
on the sulject which had been occupy

rather anxious, I must own, to lead to it,
having heard a rumor somewhere or oth

when I had heard - it, or *here. ThOse
things seem in some societies to circulate
in the air.
To my surprise T found Forteseue very
uncommunicative about this twitter, and
,still more, to my wonder, I observed a
tendency in him rather favorable to this
match. Ile even sought to defend Lord
Sneyd against my attacks.
"Oh, he's not such a bad fellow," he
said, "when you come to know him. He's
aflectcd, you know, and pretends to be
wonderfully refined, and to be a petit
maitre, and all that, but he has his good
points. We fellows who are always shoot
ing, or fishing, or riding over stone dykes,
are apt to undervalue a man of quieter
tastes, and more sedentary pursuits.
Sneyd goes in, you know, for being a sort
of artist. By-the-by—talking of artists

It was on the day succeeding that of

morning, baying some letters to write and
other things to do in my cwn room. These

Look," ho said to me, quickly, "is that
cannon possible 7" and he made it almost
as he spoke. Two or three more follow
ed. Then a hazard. At last a bad shot,
and it was time for Miss Crawcour.
She came to her place at the table,
and made a violent effort to collect her
' self. I did not look at her, but pretend
ed to be absorbed in marking Fortescue's
score. I heard her cue strike the ball in
an uncertain way. There was no subse
quent sound indicating the contact of her
ball with one of the others. It was a
miss. The moment she had made it she
placed her cue against the wall, and say
ing something indistinctly about not be
ing able to play and about my finishing
the game instead of her left the billiard
rooM, closing the door after her.
As soon as she was gone Fortescue
came up to where I stood.
"After what you've seen," he said "it's
no use my attempting to make a secret of
what has been going on between Miss
Crawcour and myself."
"My dear Fortescue, I have no wish to
force myself on your confidence. What
I have Been can be forevdr as if I had not
seen it, if you wish it. You know 'that."
"No, no, I don't wish it," he answer
ed, quickly. "But come out side with me
for half a minute. •We can't talk here."
Out in the open air, the rooks cawing
about the tree-tops as their nests waved
to and fro in the wind, he spoke again,
as we lay on the grass.
"I dare say you have beard my name
and Miss Crawcour's spoken of together?
You have. I don't know what right any
one has had to talk about either of us.
However, that can't be helped.
Ile paused, and did not seem able to
"I hate speaking of things of this sort,"
he continued, after a moment, and in an
impatient tone ; "one's words sound like
words in a valentine or a trashy novel.

which and myself there are half a dozen

What could I say when the duchess put
these questions to me ?"
Po you believe that Miss ('raweour
would be happy in such a marriage ?"
I don't klmw," answered Forteseue,
almost desperately. " I have seen such
misery come from poverty in married
" Depend on it," I answered, " it is
not the worst evil by many, many de

a moment's pause, "does Miss Craweour

" I think so," he said, speaking in a
" Then depend on it you are doing

rightly, and with a great and noble self

terribly mistaken, if you have pledged
yourself to favor this match with Sneyd,
and to give up your own hold on that
young lady's love."
"latu pledged," Forteseud answered.
" To do riothing that is maculated to
hinder the marriage with Sneyd, and not
to press my own suit by word or deed

time, of course, all chance will be over."
And this was what you were telling

" Something of it. She foll Owed me

I said, after a moment's pause, " The

" Yes, she is all that," said Fortescue,
interrupting me, " but she is touched by

riding to-morrow morning I shall excuse
myself, and—and leave this place, most
likely forever. There is a row in India,
I hear; perhaps I shall get rid of my
life there. It's at any body's service."
Again there was a pause. I know
what that careless tone meant, and for a
tine I could not speak.
" Fortescue," I said at last, " I have
one more thing to ask. This Sneyd spo
" No," answered my friend, riding to
lead the way to the house; " but he is
certain to do so to-day—or to-morrow."
That afternoon a party, of which For
tescne 4.nd I formed two, went out cov
er-shooting in the neighborhood. I nev
er saw my friend shoot so ill. Indeed
the poor fellow seemed entirely bewil
dered, and unfit for any thing. I think
he only joined the party to get, away
from the house.
Miss Craweour did not appear at din
ner.• She was suffering from a headache,
the duchess said, and preferred remain
ing in her room. Lord Sneyd professed
as much interest as would comport with
his languid manner. I could see in
Forteseue's face, carefully as he had
drilled it, how much he suffered addi
tionally at not spending this, his last
evening, in Miss Crawcour's society.
The next day came, and I was again'
prevented, by certain literary labors to
which I was obliged to devote myself,
from ping out in the early part of the
day. I spent the morning in my room,
which was situated in one of tie round
towers which flanked the entrance of
the castle, one on WWII side.
About half past eleven I heard the
voices of sumo of the men who were stay

the door, gossiping and talking. Soon

I did not like the look of the animal
on which Miss Crawcour was mounted.
As far rs beauty went, certainly there
was nothing to codmplain of. A hand
somer inare I never eiw. But tlte move
ments of the cars were too incessant and
violent., and there was more white to the
eye shown than I like to see in cornice
tian with a riding-habit. The mare had
been difficult to hold while Miss Craw

the young lady was fairly on the brute's
back it became exceedingly restive, al
" Are you afraid of her at all, Mary ?''
the duke asked, as he stood at the door;
" she seems unusually frisky this morn-
" No, not in the least. She's always
like this at starting."
This was Miss Crawcour's answer, but
I thought she looked pale. Perhaps it
was the reaction after that blush I had
noticed. The duke spoke again. This
time to the head-groom.
" llns that mare been exercised this
fuming, Roberts ?"
The man hesitated just half a moment,
and looked at the mare.
" Yes, your grace," he said, touching
" You're sure, Mary," the duchess
said, " that you're not afraid? Do lot

This was the last I saw of the caval

the gun-room, and I went back to my
writing-table, but I could not help feel
ing a certain sense of uneasiness, the
look of that mare not being at all to my
liking, and the manner of the groom
having left an impression on my mind
that the animal had not really been out
before that morning.
All the events of that day are very
fresh in my memory. The next to mine
was a boudoir. There was a piano in it,
and some one of the ladies of the party
was playing on it. I don't know what
she was playing, though I should recog
nize the air now in a moment if I heard
it. It was what is called a "piece," and
and had a wonderful plaintive beauty
about it. As the performer played it
many times over, I suppose she' was
I went on writing, and what I wrote
seemed in a sort of way to be mixed up
with this tune. Presently 1 heard the
sound of wheels, and some light vehicle
drove up to the door. 1 went again to
the window. It was a dog-cart, driven
by ono of the duke's grooms, and it drove
up befbre the door. Some servants
brought out a portmanteau, some gun
cases, and other luggage, and placed
them in the vehicle. Almost ;it the same
moment my door opened, and Forteseue
entered the room. 1 never saw any
thing more dreadful the suppressed ag
ony in his face.
" Good-by, old fellow," he said, with
a miserable ;2.-hastly smile. " I'm off,

from the next room came that same plain
tive air, and still it seemed to belong to
what I wrote, and to he an inseparable
part of the day and its events.
Once mere I was disturbed, and by
the clatter of hoofs. Lt was a single
horse this time, and going evidently at a
tremendous pace.. I looked out and saw
young Balham, who had been one of the
party of equestrians, dashing along the
road at lull gallop. He, turned off in
the direction of the stables, and I saw
no more of him. I remained where I
was, but with a dim IM.elioding that
something had gone wrong, and by-and
by a low open carriage, empty, was driv
en out of the stable-yard at a great pace
Lord Balham rode rapidly on in front of
it, lmtli he and the carriage going back
by the way he had come.
I still kept where I was, and in a few
moments the (ham of the house NV as open
ed, and some of the servants came out.
They looked oat in the direction
which the carriage had disappeared.—
Ono or two ladies'-maids stood ou the
steps, one of them the duchess's, and
there was another who was crying, but
quite quietly, the servants in such houses
being drilled into the greatest undemon
strativeness. I heard one of the men
servants say to another, " Roberts is
gone off to Inverkeed fur Dr. Maelntyre,
and James has gone into Creel for Mr.
Cameron. They'll both be here quickly."
"Is his grace in the house ?" " No.—
Ide's up at the plantations. But he's
been sent for."
The conversation among the men stop
ped suddenly. The carriage, driving very
slowly, had come in sight. It was follow
ed by some horsemen. Presently 1 made
out that two grooms behind were loading
each a lady's horse; then I saw that the
duchess was sitting in the carriage bend
ingovor and supportingsomething—some
body—lying at length on the cushions.
A gentleman, one of those on horseback,
detached himself from thegroup, and rode
swiftly up to tho4loor.
" Is Miss drAcour's maid here ?" ho
The girl came forward, sobbing. The
duchess's woman, older, with more head,
more nelf-controlled, and more useful now,
came out too.
Not a word more was spoken. The oar

I remained still where I was. I knew
I could be of no use, should only be in

I wish I had not. As they lifted Miss
Crawoour from the carriage, the handker

One whole side of her face seemed to
have been crushed and beaten in. That
It was covered again, in a moment, but
I had seen it—and so had some one else.
When Lord Snarl looked upon that mu
tilated face he turned even paler than he
had been before, and went into the house.
The door closed over the sad group,
with Mary Craweour's helpless figure car
ried in the midst of it, the carriage drove
away to the stables, and all was quiet
"And he did it, think of that," said
13alham. "It was that disgusting white

" You know that mare that poor Miss
Craweour used to ride. Well, she was
always an unsafe, ill-conditioned mare, in
my opinion, but on this occasion she was
particularly bad. All the time we were
out she was fidgeting and starting at ev

THE REST OF` rms MANUSCRIPT ISE
SOME years after these things had hap
pened I stood on the suinnrirof one of
those mighty mountains which form a
boundary line, such as few countries can
boast of, between Switzerland and Italy.
It was evening, and I was gazing with
all my eyes into that; strange receptacle
for the dead which the monks of St. Ber
nard have placed at the door of their con
vent, and where the bodies of those un.
fortunates who have perished in the snow
aro preserved...l - ' 7 ' l llloy are embalmed by
the highly rarified air of that height, and
do not decay. The Egyptian mummies
are not more perfectly kept.
I was so absorbed in these strange fig•
ures that I scarcely noticed there was any
one standing beside MC, Until I heard n•y
own name pronounced by a voice familiar
to me. I turned and found myself face
to face with Jack Fortescue.
" Well," he said, almost before we had
exchanged greetings, "this is the most
extraordinary thing, the • most marvelous
combination of coincidences that ever took
places ince the creation of the world !
Who do you think is in there ?" pointing
to the convent. •
" Who ?" I asked. "In Heaven's
name, who ?"
"In the strangers' parlor there, you
will find, at this moment, your old ac
quaintance Lord Sneyd—and, what is
more, a new acquaintance, if you choose
to Make it, "in the shape of that nobleL
man's illustrious consort."
"[That, the Irish-Italian singer, who,
as I Saw by Gulignani, had managed to
become Lady Sneyd ?"
" The same."
" And your wife—where is she ?"
" Mary is with me. Is not extraord
inary, incredible almost, that we should
all be under the same roof again ? Do
you remember the last time ?"
" Remember it ? Shall I over forget

I wag at Chatham, and was, in fact, just
negotiating for an exchange into a regi

letter altered' 311 my plans. Do what I
would the thought of that poor maimed
figure haunted me: the love which I had
resisted when she was in the full pride
and glory of her beauty became, now that
pity was mixed up with it, now that this
fearful trouble had come upon her, a
thing that I could no longer hold out
against. I felt that I must go back to
Creel. And I went.
"When I got there I found that infer
nal brute and scoundrel, Sneyd, had left
the place. Very soon after the accident
—you know that he had never actually
spoken to the duke about Mary, or said
any thing definite to her—well, very soon
after the acident he discovered that it was
actually necess l ary that he should pay
visit to some estates of his iri s lreland.
He left the castle to come ba& there no
more. lle went first of all to Ireland,
and then was absent on the Continent far
a considerable length of time. There
was an end of him. At Naples ho be

"Well, I staid on and on at Creel. It
was. a quiet, delightful time. After the
accident every body left, but Greta—he
and I, you know, were always great friends
—the duke pressed me to stay that he
might have somebody to shoot with, and
I staid on and on.
"At that time, too, I saw more of the
duchess than I had ever done before, and
one day we began talking about the ac
cident and about Sneyd's behavior, and
I ventured to say that I thought that if
Mary had broken every bone in her skin
she would still have had reason to con
gratulate herself on being thereby deliv
ered from a marriage with the wretched
creature that he had proved himself to be.
The duchess did not differ from me, and
somehow from that day a strange kind of
hope and happiness seemed to take pos
session of te—a curious indefinite do
light such as I bud never felt before.
"At length a day cane when I was al
lowed to see It, r. And when I went in
to the room"—at this point Forteseue's
voice faltered a little—"when I saw her
poor arm bound up, and halt her sweet
fit .0 covered with bandages, I knelt down
by the side of the sofa, and, in short, I
made a foul of myself. The duchess was
present, but she was fairly beat, and—
Will, very soon I was discussing ways
and means with the duke.
"There never was any thing like that
man's kindness. Besides making Nary
a very handsome present indeed, which
he declared ho had always intended to
do, he set himself to work to got Me such
an appointment as should make it possi

this has been effected, so I waited till I

"And the privations avhich were to
make your wife so wretched ?" I asked,
as I shook" him warmly by the band.
"Looked touch worse at a distance than
they do close," said my friend. "I do

Fortescue appeared with his wife on his

we shook hands cordially, while I spoke
such words of congratulation as I had
ready, which were, in truth, not very
many. At one glance I saw that at all
events the expresxion of her face ',yap safe.
A great matter that, at any rate.
The injury which she had sustained
being from a kick, and not from a fall or
dragging along on the ground, was con
fined entirely to one portion (the left
side) of her face. That that injury had
been a terrible ono it was impossible
not to see even now. The brow im
mediately over the eye was scarred,
and the eyebrow something interrupt
ed in its even sweep; the cheek was
scarred and indented, and there was e
slight scar on the nostril, all on this same
left side; but the eye, sheltered in its
somewhat sunken recess,. bad escaped;
the mouth was unhurt, and, above all,
there was the expression, the general
look, of which the attractiveness had
been so great. That fearful injury which
had looked dorm on from the turret

We talked pleasantly, all throe togeth
