RHEEM & WEAELEY, Editors & Proprietors
I don't know why there should be
something pleasantly suggestive about a
staircase ; but there is. A nice wide
staircase, on whose carpet your foot
makes no sound, and against whose bal
ustrade you might have leaned some hot
night years ago, talking,•with a fan or a
boquet in your hand, and a companion
in gossamer listening to you: Perhaps
your words meant very little indeed in
reality; but the chances were that they
would be heard .again in dreams when
you were faraway. and remembered them
no inure. You couldn't help putting into
them more than you felt; time and place
and surroundings were to blame flu- that,
not you. And it was stifling in the
crowded rooms up therembove People
thronged and jostled caeh other without
mercy ; whilst here and there was space
and qiiiet, pleasantly broken by the dis
tant music ; and you could talk of the
parting which might be for ever, and
lower your voice. and fin• the moment
half persuade yourself that here was . your
fate. Thus you might have stood, as my.
friend Captain Halph Gahm' is standing
to-night on that friendly staircase. look

his feet, and won .ering. with a vague
sense of irresponsibility, what he shall

And then a gentleman came up to
claim Miss Tennent, and Ralph's chance
was over. He stood a little while watch
ing her, moodily. so absorbed in his own
thoughts,, that he started when a voice
at hie elbow accosted him familittrly
' Hipped, Galton ? Or— let me whis

Now Mr Galion experienced a.sbnaa
tion of delight ,at these "remarks. He
hardly knew why, for a very little time
ago be might probably haVe made them
himself. He shook off the unwelcome
critic, and passed on. He bad a great
mind to alter his plans. He was ac-

ter to anybody where he went or what
he did ?
More people in that room who knew
him nodded to each other, and murmur
ed that the captain with caught at last ;
but inasmuch as these kept their opin
ions quiet, they did not hurt him. Lady
Julia herself had not been unmindful of
him, nor of the little tableau on the
taircase. It was true that she had three
daughters, and,
- was a care-worn, hard
worked woman. Moreover, this one, Itive
lyn, was the youngest, and as her Mother
considered, the most -hopeless of the three.
The poor lady thought of the baronetcy
in prospect, and sighed out a great sigh
of mingled hope and despair. They were"
so very poor, and it was so difficult to
keep up appearances and live like the
rest of the world. And these ttt. homes,'
which of course she must give for her
daughters' sakes, did pull so heavily
upon her lean purse. The annual visit
to the sea side, too, was an indispensable
outlay-. She could not be in London .
when all the wo Id was rushing away
from it. But here, too, that hard neces
sity Tor economy had to be considered ;
and when some kindly adviser went into
raptures over Searffin-ough, and assumed
that of course the fashionable south was
the only part to be thought of', Lady Julia
smiled a ghastly smile, and said that she
dared not try it—the air was too relax
ing thr the girls. Iler medical man had
positively ordered the North Cliff. In
deed, Lady •Julia herself needed bracing.
She knew in her secret heart that this
evening. from which she had hoped so
much, utut.t be reckoned a failure, so far
as the affairs of her youngest daughter
Evelyn might,' said her ladyship,
with bitter irritation ; the game was in
her own hands; I know she might have
brought this tardy captain to the point ;
and he will be Sir lialph—not that a
baronet is much; but then lie is rich. I
almost wish we were nut going away.'
If Lady Julia could have known the
thoughts which perplexed the brain of
the country siluire that night, what a
brilliant ray would have shot across her
gloomy regrets and forebodimrs..
I don't onden•tand thee, lialphomio

The :-.quire turned in his seat and took
the offered eirar.
• I like the place,' lie said; 'it's fresh;
and you needn't have come; nobody ,
wanted you, that I know of'.'

The two gentlemen rose, and the wan

told to return it to its natural position.

• Lady Julia in the amphitheatre
under the colonnade \yell screened from

olive complexion had secured this seat
I'm- her, and Tie had been talking to her
fur sonic time: one low languid voice
amidst the general buzz, distinct only to
the ear for which it was intended Lady
du ia's eyes had wandered to the little
pavilion wherein the band was stationed,
and her •attention,, to all appearance, was
fixed upon the rows of gas jets running

was hidden - under her smile as she list

This Was not the young lady who had
stood with him on the staircase, but a
chilly likeness of her. Ralph did not
know why, but as he recoiled from the
freezing politeness of her greeting, an
angry, uneasy suspicion darted into his
"mind, with the count for its object It
was soon banished, howevc;r." ' As he asked
that bold qiiestion, Ralph, leaning over
the wall with his face seaward, was dimly
conscious of all the surroundings, which:
as part of a whole, seemed to come be

lights spring up in the little fishing smacks
out on the bay,and heard the gentle slush
of the water agains the wall as he leaned
over it. Behind him there was a moving
of chairs under the colonnade, and the
buzz of a thousand voices, as the tulip
bed of human beings sauntered in two
distinct streams up and down; and, over
all, mingling with other sounds and soft
cuing them, the music of the • Guards'
Waltz.' ,Ile waited patiently for Evelyn's

to the old manner.

paths, shritbs, and grottoes, while° the
distant music mingled oddly wit)?. the
flex*. ceasing tramp over the bridge, and
the red spark of Richard Galton's cigar
flashed before him from time to time, as
the count took it from his lips to tell
some fresh anecdote of Lady Julia's pow
ers of finesse. But the captain knew all
this very vaguely indeed, and only roused
himself with,a-start when his cousin stood
suddenly before him in the path and bar
red his progress.
You are-bad company amico, and
go,' said the count. He bent forward a
little as he spoke, and his small black
eyes gleamed into Ralph's with an ex
pression of intnnse misphief.
' Have a care of the eapriote,lpbo

A rivederti.'
There was a concert in the Assembly
Rooms at the Spa, and the promenade
was thinner than usual. Captain Galton
sauntered about amongst the flowers up
above, trying to make up his mind. He
had a cigar in his mouth, and every now
and then the red spark at the end would
go out while he stopped to smile down
into the turf at his feet, like a modern
Narcissus, only the image that he saw
there was nut his own. And at times,
something troubled this image—a too
mentary cloud only, which just darkened
it to his eyes and then vanished. It was
the speech which Richard Galton had
made some nights ago when he parted
flow his cousin in disgust at his lack of
'attention. Not that Ralph believed it.
Ile thrust the idea from him with supreme
scorn when it obtruded itself upon his
brighter dreams. But the thing was, it
would obtrud,. itself. He couldn't for.
get it He haled the possibility that
gossip should dare to take Evelyn's name
upon his lips and slander it. For it
Such a thing as that of which the count
had spoken were true, she could be no
love of his. But it was not true; he
had but to call up her thee as he saw it
at-times,- open and frank, - and beautiftil;
exceedingly to him, and the doubt fled
away vanquished. Some day, he thought,
he to igh t tell her this idle story and laugh
at it with her. They had met very often
in these last few days, and the count,
gazing on the sort of mental paralysis
which had seized his cousin, so far as the
outer world was concerned, sl rugged his
shoulders with a moody ' e seiolto,' and
almost. des;atired lie did not know that
even now fare was about to play a single
stroke in his favour. Captain Galton
suddenly flung away his cigar and start
ed at a quick paeo . to walk up the Castl e
Cliff. Ile ha I been idle all day, and he
wanted a good st ff climb, and space and
solitude to think it all over once again.
Ile passed the one armed sailor with his
miniature ship. not stopping to talk as
he usually did, but pressing on as though
he had some object to gain in reaching
the ruins beflrre him at a given moment.
Ile stood on the broad summit of the
chill and .leaned back against the iron
railings, with his hat off, and the wind
blowing fresh about his head. Again be
saw the lights begin to spring up in-the on the bay, and the moon
come out, from a 'cloud and shine down
upon them as it had done when Fvelyn
touched arm to. make him look. He
was. thinkine9f hp'', of the count's words,
which did so haunt hi,tn, and of a possi
ble future, when he turned his head and
saw a figure coming from amongst the
ruins in front of him. An odd feeling
of wieti§iness began to steal over the
captain.' ' He had no time to wonder what
it meant, for the figure came on hastily.
It was a man, hatless like himself, but
with a face that looked haggardand-wild'
in the moonlight, and with bloodshot
eyes that seemed to see only one spot in
all the waste of water far away below
the cliff.
Curtain Galton was a brave man, but
there was something in this wild figure
and its mad rush towards the iroix rail
ing—all that separated from the precipice
beyond—which Made him draw his breath
sharply, with a vawiese,nsation of terror--
not altogether for himself It flashed
upori him suddenly that the man was
about to throw himself over, • There was
no time to think. Instinctively, Ralph
started from his leaning posture and stood
between him and the railings:
'Are you, mad ?' shouted Ralph: Stop!'
There was a single violent word in answer,
and RalphGaltori saw rhe stranger flag
up his arms and Spring forwards on one'
side of him, The 'next moment the two
had grappled with each other. Ralph
felt the hot breath on his cheek, and the
two arum close round him like a vice;
but the country squire had been too well
trained to be tuktin by surprise, ,For a
few seconds he stood his. ground firmly,
and then all at once the man's-grasp re
laxed.; his arms dropped heavily, and he,
stood.back axaring qt his opponent with

and a quiver of suppressed passion about
his lips.
' You I' he cried out at; lastiraising his
hand and Fhakingit at the captain. I
knew it would be so ; A fit meeting. You
miserable, cowardly villian I I wish I had
a piitol that I might shoot you like a dog.
I swear -I would do it, if they hanged me
for it.'
Ho went a little nearer and peered up
into Ralph's face of amazement with a
fierce sneer.
I saw you with her last night,' he
said between his teeth. ' Oh, it was
rleasant ! honeyed moments, were they
not ? Just so she used to smile on me
before you came and bought her with your
pitiful money. You poor dupe, you fan
cy she cares fur you. I tell you it's a lie.
She loves me—me, a poor devil of a
younger son who had nothing but his
love to give, and eo she sells herself to
you. No, I'll not punish you; the pun
ishment is enough. Fool ! you may take
her to your home, but her soul is mine to
all eternity.
Captain Dalton stood stunned and helpless
as this strange flow of words fell from the
man's lips. The dark ruins and the g, ass,
and the distant light, all danced before
his eyes in one confused mass, and the
only thought that stood out clear before
him was this : Richard Galton's tale was
true. He never stopped to reason about
it. The terrible earnest and reality which
burnt this man's vfords into his heart left
no room for mistrust or hope. A little
while the two stood there facing each other,
and then the reaction which follows such
stormy passions as his came upon the
stranger, and he staggerd to the railings
and sank into a sitting posture with his
forehead in
,his hands.
'Why did you stop me ?' he said. 'lt's
cool down there, and my head is on fire.
I'm quiet enough now , the devil is gone
out of me. Leave me to myself, if you
'are a wise man.'
Ralph was silent a moment, and then
he bent his white face down close to the
hands which looked so cold and bony in
the moonlight. •
'As you are a man,' he said, in a low
voice, 'as you shall answer for every word
spoke!) here, was she your promised wife?'
I swear it.'
`And she—threw you over forme ?'
'For your money, you fool. Go, I tell
you, while I am quiet, and free me from
this devilish torment Hush ! who's
that ?'
Ralph started back, for a hand was put
on hi artn drawing him away, and a third
voice broke the spell, which tempted him
still to question.
I didn't mean to be a listener,' said
the count, gently, but come away now '
Like a wan in a dream, Ralph tuned
and went down the hill with his cousin.
lie hardly knew, indeed, where he was
going or what it was that happened; he
only felt that terrible, dead weight of op
pression ; of something in tha back-ground
which he must think over by-and-by
when he should be able fur it; that shrink
ing of the soul from such an examination,
which comes upon us with SUM heavy
end unlocked for blow. Half way down
the hill the hand o❑ his arm grew heavi
er with a momentary pressure, and the
count spoke, a novel gentleness in his
' Poor old boy l' he said, Pm sorry.'
Ralph turned with a sudden bitter and
unaccountable irritation, and shook him
'Leave me to myself, Dick. I don't
want pity, and there are. times when a
man can't brook being worried.
The count walked,on, and Ralph, lean
ing against the wall, watched the round
balls of light far away on the promenade,
and heard. once more faintly the music
of the ' Guards' Waltz;' Was sheamongst

inward cry. It was all, he could say or

everything he saw, in his bitterness.—

,the platform, glancingaimlesslyin
to the carriages , of the 'train. that stood
waiting its time. Not thatheoared about
choosing his seat; but he was restless
and miserable, impatient to be off; and
he could not stand as the count did, to
all appearance absorbed in the conversa
tion which was going on briskly between
the station-master and some of the pas
sengers. Chancing to look at his cousin,
'however, Mr. Galton's attention was
caught by the expieesion of his face; it
had a strangely. eager .look ; nostrils
were dilated and the thin lips compressed.
Ralph's eyes rested upon him with a lan
guid wonder, and when he looked up and
saw them he started and went hurriedly
to meet his cousin.
NO, 42.
'Not there,' ho said, al9iply, as the
captain paused. 'Take the next, Ralph;
we shall have it to ourselves.'
Again Ralph looked up at him wonder
ing. The gentlemen to whose conversa
tion Richard Galton had been listening
had chosen the, carriage -before which' he
stoocl,,but in 'a
- general way the count
liked to have fellow-travellers.. A fit of
perverseness seized the country squire.
'This is as good as any other,' he said,
getting in. 'lt doesn't matter to us about
being alone.'
The count, biting his moustache as he
followed, muttered once more between his
teeth soiolto,' and threw himself bank
upon the cushions. The other occupants
of the carriage continued their talk, but
Ralph was staring vacantly into the flat
expanse of heath and moorland through
which the train had begun to move, and
he paid no attention to them. All at
once, however, a sentence caught his ear,
and made him turn away from the win
'They think he must have thrown him
self from the Castle cliff. A one-artued
sailor that stand.4' at the gate begging saw
just such" a figure go up the cliff late in

Then Ralph leaned forward and asked
a question.
`Yes I wonder you didn't hear of it,'
was the reply. 'The whole town was

Ralph shot a glance "at' his cousin, but
the count's eyes were closed, and he
seemed to be asleep.

the gentleman 'The poor young fellow

Again Ralph glanced at his cousin, and
he saw that the sleep was sham, and the
count was furtively watching him out of
the half-closed eyes. An angry spot
came into Captain Galton's cheeks, and
he turned again to the flat land-cape,

He walked a few steps down the plat

when he paused and looked back he saw
that the count had mopped also and was
looking after him with an unusual wist
