"I don't see ithe neiessity,of warning d
1
person against a danger of which he is
already aware," snapped a yonig lady
with very black eyes, ;who stood behind
the sofa on which we' at.
Gertrude turned anund with a crimson
face.
"What is the subject of your discuss.-
ion Won't you adtuip me to your. confi
dence, ladies ?" .said a ; familiar voice, so
near' my ear that I started in affright.
The black-eyed young lady slipped
aside to give Mr. Cheston a 'place near
us. Several persons -mere presented , to
him,; I among others.
.He' paid no par
ticular attention, Old took a emir beside
Gertrude.
"Don't you inquire What we yrere talk
ina about, Mr: Cheston ?"said the black
eyed young
"I believe I had the audacity to do so,"
he replied, smiling. Bat the smile was
very different from the one I remember
ed to have seen upon his face:
"We were speaking of 'kisses," said
Gertrude, quickly, with a saucy smile.--
"And Hattie. Latmer 'declared that she
didt't believe.yon cared for them.'
I started, I had never heard my sic-
ter utter a deliberate falsehood..
am very sorry that Miss. Latmer
thinks me so indiffererit to the most per
feet luxury in life,' he replied, glancing
up at her.
"Victory, Hattie! Mr. ieheston does
believe in kisses,' died Gertrude, with a
smile so bright as to dazele the eves so
that but two of us saw the hidden malice:
'I think Miss Hattie:was about making
au attempt to straggle out of the post
tion into which my sister had thrust'. her;
bat Louise Anshe, whd had sauntered up
a moment before, exclaimed, "Oh, Mr.
eheston, don't you remember that you
once attended a forfeit party, and word
the most dissatisfied face ever saw in
my life, all the evening
"But Mrs. Anslie, that was because I
consider forfeits a sacrelege of the caress;'
be replied. "It is converting - the beau
tiful into the nseful, 4 and ruining its
peculiar value by - so 'doing. I regret,
however; that My face' betrayed my fel
ing. I assure you that the rudeness was
not intentionaL'
"Mr. Cheston is apparently.unconiciani
that seremiladiesarelooking at L im` very
admiringly," said a low voice near me.
I turned round. Itwas Mr 'Maynard,
Who was in is fever of jealousy banana()
Rose Lawton's bright eyes were fixed
upon the gentleman id queation.
"Take care, Mr. Cheeton," cried Ger
trttde: "I'm' afraid you don't know what
you are bringing upon yourself. Having
declared:you - n(11f so , much in favor of the
'most perfect luxury life;' we young
ladies-may have you quite at our mercy.
According to your assertiOn i I doubt if
you could resist the reward: of a kisstrom
a pretty girl who might be suing for
a favor. Could you ?"--"Veti he
"How so?" she asked: '
"Because a kiss given! in that way
would be of little value," said Mr. Cheston.
"I consider that a very unkind speech,
coming as it does from the I' of a man
who is well aware that kisses ar lady's
favorite bribe," replied Gertrude, fl ed,
bat laughing. "It is a 'post ungalla
speech, Mr. Cheston ; you mast stand
trial for punishment." 1
"I' will make it short by Choosing Rose
Lawton for my judge," he relpied, laugh
ing, and glancing up into the smiling
eyes of the little beauty. 1.
"Your ehastisdment shall be to .cen
fess whom you kissed last," said she,
"That's not fair, i 'he said.
"Why?" she'demended quietly.
"Because," saidie, "the lady is , pres
ent; and the punishment would rather
fall upon her than me." Whereupon
they all burst into a merry laugh.
"Well, then, you jean tell whom you
intend to kiss. next," said Rose.
"That will not do, either," said he,_
"II should never be able'o put my inten
tions into effect."
"Do you keep an account of your kisses
as I you do your expenses, Cheston ?"
called out Mr. Maynard.
"Yes," relied Mr. Cheston, quietly/
"Now I have it !" cried Rose Lawton.
"You shall tell us how many ladies you
have kisied during the last fiveears."
"I will do so on condition that my
word will not be doubted" he said
gravely.
"We will believe pa; certainly," said
Rose, "Now listen, goed folks:"
,"Not one," said Mr. Clieston, quietly;
upon which everibody looked astonished.
"Oh, Mr. , Cheston, you amaze us I"
cried Rose:

•
"Hugh is probably faithful to some
fair lady who favored him before," said
Mr. Anslie, Who had been listening qui
etly for some moments. • •
"Exactly," said Mr. Cheston, rising
with a bow, anctturhing away to some
one who called fiat impatiently:
Oh, the' significant glances and ex
clamations of l wonder thatjwas circulated
through the group 'after his departure !
"And what are you thinking of, little
mouse," said Mrs. Wilson,bending toward
me. • Your cheeks are as red as roses "
She would have been overwhelmed'
with astonishment if If had told her.
Three weeks passed, and Nr. Cheston
and I were on no more intimate terms
than we had been on that first'evening.
We rarely met except at .the table'or in
.
the drawine , room of an evening / 'and he
seldom addressed' me when we did meet:
By degrees I -overcame my shyness and
sensitiveness regarding him. He had
forgotten, I thought the romantic inci
dent of my childhood, which had always
had such a chains for me, and I wondered
at Myself for ever supposing that he had
remembered it beyond the moment. It
made me a little sad !to know that all my
pleasant thoughts mourning it were
castles in the air,and lightly humiliating /
taken in connection with his polite in
difference to me, to knoverthat those thots'
were so many. i
3.lf r Cheston was a great lion among
the party at "The 11,lapies." The ladies
liked him; the; gentlemen were jealous of
him while they strove to imitate .him.
