Now this teleLrar:
ter from old Penroy. Ar.hur's lawyer,
Is far more disquieting.
I find mystlf the appointed guardian
of a young fcirl of whora I know abso-
ely Lothing, whose sudden orphan-
, Alma saw very little of her father,

. Dtlnetit and at watering places (and

Kr mother died ten years ago. I
bad t ot thought It so long. How time

'is. Ills would have made a pernicious

re you happy, child?" I asked her
I few evenings ago, when we came
back from a brisk canter and I was
lifting her down from her saddle.
"Iiapj y? I never was so happy in
ill my life, Cousin Hugh," she said,

I I was passing by the wing. i'.rt of
'the liotis" the other day and heard
Alma's joyous, mellow laugh. I stopped
and looi.t d iu Mrs. Hrown's room.
Alma sat on the floor, her sleevts
rolled up. stemming strawberries lor
Mrs. lir.'wn, who was concocting
KMi-.ctl.hi- at a table, and the tliemo
i(f eonv ration I Fathered was our
family Lh-.sts.
' Altitit'r- arias and hands are exquisite. I'afi .:i nnrble. A ray of sunlight
was f iilir.j over her splendid bron.o
hair, un I noticed her eyes were
not purple blue, like her mother's, but
a darl; -r.iy, honest, frank and true.
No. i-l;: Lad not inherited any of
: Arthur's l rails.
id eouri'i the neighbors have flocked
to Uinnieiuh Hall as soon as I issued I
a few inlormal invitations.
Alma is clearly the sensation of the
day and hour In our exclusive society.
Hut I wont have Catherine Weihtley
and her fast set spoil my little girl and
brush the bloom of ber exquisite fresh
ness away, by their reckless cynical so
ciety talk.
Sue Carrington laughed at me last
i night. "My dear Hugh," she said, "you
are too absurd with that child. You are
a hen with a duckling, positively. No
body's going to steal your Jewel, at
least not to-night. A little latsr. But
;ot arj worrying needlessly. Alma
is very clever, I assure you, and her
convent education does not prevent
her from forming her opinion about
; men and women and a very accurate
one it is. Nobody can spoil her."
I was glad such was Mrs. Carrlng
ton's opinion. Sue lives and breathes
for her world social and I'aquln Is the
idol she worships. Hut underneath her
laces and frivoltles, she has a warm
heart, nnd considerable brains in her
clever little worldly head.

But the ward Providence, in Its fan-
tastia decrees, has seen fit to afilict m
with a girl. !
Her name Is Alma, and she Is grow
ing up to womanhood, so Penroy says
in his epistle. ,
Of course, she must come to Bran
lelgh Hall. I have Instructed my
housekeeper, Mrs. Brown, to preparo
lor her, nnd it is evident the advent of
i this disturbing element in our odrIy
, household is no more to her liking than
i to mine.
i Well, it can't be helped. Kate has
' willed it. The child will be here this
: afternoon and until I have arranged t:

'.now which college is fitting for a
j girl's education? What influences
j l:o'i)d surround an unformed feminine ;
I mind on the verge of womanhood? i
My gray hair-s and that experience
which 1 pride myself is varied and ex- '
len.sivp, for having been accumulated
at a vast cos to myself, stops short
i at the education and bringing up of a '
girl. !
Perhaps she will bring herself up, j
with a complete scorn of my authority.
If she Is at all discerning and realizes
on what uncertain theories and ideas i
it rests, she will certainly disregard It. j
Ah, my boasted quietude! My life of
calm, and undisturbed contentment
what will become of you, with this un
welcome clement thrust upon us?
Alma came last evening.
Penroy was wrong. She has already
reached the threshold of a very mag
nificent womanhood. Alma has her
mother's beauty idealized, and, if I
mistake not, an energy neither of ber
parent 8 ever possessed.
Has she Arthur's clever, subtle
brain? His unscrupulous egotism.
I believe absolutely in inherited
traits. Our acquaintance is too short
for me to decide.
I have retreated to the library, with
orders not to be disturbed on any ac
count, In order to readjust conditions
and work out this terrible problem,
made ten times worse by Alma's
What am I to do with her? In Jus
tice to her youth, I cannot shut her up
and Koep her a prisoner In Branlelgh
Hall. But the college idea Is out of
the question. You can't send a re
markably handsome girl of 18 to col
lege to get rid of her. - '
"Come In! Who is that? You, Mrs.

body and snul, so to speak.
Mrs, Brown came to my study to
suggest horse riding and rowing on
the I ke for Alma, ami driving, cro
quet and a tennis court, and music les
sons from the organist of the town, a
German artist, so that Alma would
not brood and be unhappy and want
to go to live elsewhere.
"Bo you mean to say, Mrs. Brown,
you would grieve if Miss Alma left
us?" I asked in astonishment.
"I do. sir," she answered with em
phasis (her broad, pleasant face twitch
ing slightly). "I do, sir. She Is like
sunshine in the house, and her voice
Is like the twittering of birds. Bran
lelgh Hall will be the brighter for hav
ing a young thing like that running
up and down the stairs and filling the
rooms with talk and laughter. But
we must not let her mope. If you'll
excuse my saying so, sir. Perhaps a
little company would cheer her a bit"
So it had come to this. Branlelgh
Hall must be thrown open to callers,
to be Invaded at all hours of the day
by our neighbors, and Alma's youth
and legitimate pleasures are to banish
the quiet, drowsy life of perfect con
tentment I had hoped would be mine
for the rest of my days.

me to entertain next, as S0014 as the

Alma has been here three months.
Mrs. Brown was right. She has
chased the somber shadows out of
these big, quiet rooms and the sound
of her light footsteps, of her sweet
voice calling me to go riding or boat

bright, lovely presence, has brought
another life Into Branlelgh Hall.
