OF all the men of England, to j
Lord Weston alone had It been
given to put anlde the veil of
formally conrteous but wearily
feynieal Indifference with which Lord
lOctt hid Ms true self from a workl
ithat wooid not have understood or
would have scoffed. Wherefore be
tween them was an awkward but sin
icere friendship, and each hid bis affec- ,
tion for the other. It was only when
| Lord Weston ran down to Croftlalgh 1
ifor an Idle day that their reserve was
to some extent melted. To Cecil, who
despite the coaxing of calculating
mothers of no less shrewd young ladies
•of wealth and station, had completely
j withdrawn from fashionable society,;
Weston's gossip was a refreshing re
lllef from the somberneas of his own
(thoughts. Lord Weston's acquaintance
iwas as vast as it was catholic, ranging
Ml the wny from the highest, dignita
Iries of the church to the latest hopeful
bruisers from the collieries and from
princesses of the blood to princesses of
tthe Gayety chorus. Anything occur
ring in his world, to be outside his
'knowledge, must have happened with

Judge by hip careless revelations. How

the stream which marked the boundary
of Croftlalgh. and Ix>rd Weston nod
ided toward the roof of a handsome
villa which rose above the tree tops on
the opposite bank.
I "Know your new neighbors?" he
| "No. didn't know the place hnd been

; "Wr.s taken a month ago." Weston
informed him. "Quite amazin' that you
haven't been added to the countess'
'Collection. Suppose it must lie a mat
ter of business before pleasure wi*h
her just, now, or she may be lioldin'
you in reserve for something big.

an' he never misses. The countess is
[quite as deadly in another way. Hei

keeps handy. Rotten business."
Lord Weston suddenly stopped and
looked at Cecil earnestly,
j "By Jove!" he exclaimed. "I was
near forgettin' old Jimmy Middlehurst

lar friend of yours! Well. I was just
hearln' yesterday that the countess had
taken Hose Middlehurst under her

girl will be of age in a week or so.

■ Cecil's face grew troubled. Middle

j friendship to be no little thing. Rose

"What do you know about the es

Lord Cecil queried.
"It isn't a place where a gentleman's

lord—leastwise, so I understand."
"None of the local servants—some

"And why bad Tim been kept after

at Ashley grange for only a few days
when Count Luco joined the small par

manner that fascinated even while tt

"It is, as you say. simple nnd most
easy." the count remarked to the
Countess T.urovteh a week later. "But

"As I have told you." the countess
responded Impatiently, "this girl is a
ward in chancery. She will, however,
be of age on Tuesday, and free to mar

"Then why the necessity of further
play acting and the elopement you
have so carefully planned?" the count
"Because, my good l.uco, there will

"Docs that new chauffeur know the

she then asked.
"Oh, he appears to know every cow

his motor than he did for his neck
