he looked at or spoke to Lady Mary; and
nature, that marvelous In.truottesv, told
her he must be very fond of her ultra -
live ladyship. Now all their pleasant,
easy Intercourse wns at an end, and she
really liked Beaton. It would indeed b'
painful to meet him and Mrs. Wiuin;-
ton. Whnt would she say? Edith fe't
rather than thought that it was quit.'
possible Mrs. Winington could be very
angry, and what more likely to anger lor
than liudhig Iter brother, to whom s'le
arts so much attached, and of whom, as
it seemed to Edith, she was so prondj
hadproposod to a little countrified s mpltv
i-fon, which in Itself was bad enbngli, nnd
•worse still thnt she had had the temerity to refuse him!
What should she do if Mrs. Winington wns cross and quarreled.-with he.'?
Though by no means captivated by a life
of restless excitement, she felt she cou\l
not go back to her former mount'-notf.
existence. And her guardians? What
would Mr. Tilly say? Beaton had intimated that he had secured her guard'au's
consent. Would every one be very angry?
Then she wondered why she did not like
to ,ir~*T Mr. Beaton. It wns curiou?,
for he was nice, and good-looking. Next
fancy suggested, "If Mr. Maitland had
asked you to be his wife would you hnve
refused?" Conscience instantly answer
ed, "No." Of course, he would never
think of asking her. He win far above,
out of her reach. It was with no passionate burst of emotion that Edl.h recognized this; she was not in love w th
Mnitland, or rather she did not know
she was in love, and with a sigh of
gentle regret she turned from the idea,
blushing nt her own temerity.
Al -last her maid tapped at the door
to say that Mrs. Winington had come
hi, and wished to know if Miss Vivian
would not have ten.
"No thank yon, 1 have a bad b:ad
ache, and will lie down till dinner-time,"
s(,ld,Edith, beginning to realize tio ap-
palling trial before her in meeting Mrs.
Winington's keen eyes with such a
secret weighlug on her soul.
"Shall I bring you a cup of tea hero,
"If you please," returned Edith, c.igei
to be left alone; nor was she distuibed
for a long time.
Then Mrs. Winington broke in upon
her, on the wny from her drcsshig-roiui
to the carriage and a soleuiu dinnerparty. She rarely took her young protegee out with Jier in the ovenlng, save
to the theatre or a concert.
"Is yotir head better, dear?" she ask
ed, kindly, but to EdlUt's anxious ear
there wns unusual gravity, almost sadness, in her tone.'
"Oh, yes! certainly better."
"I have brought you tbe new Corn-
hill, if you are nble to read. Tty and
eat some dinner or supper, and get to
bed early; I Tvr.iB to find you quite well
to-morrow morning.   Oood-uight, dear."
A gentle kiss, accompanied by a siffh,
and Mrs, Winington wns gone.
Edith seldom saw her hostess in the
morning before she went to tbe studio,
where she worked steadily in spite of
the distractions which surrounded hoi',
und-where, perhaps, she was happiest.
His uneasiness nnd fearful looking forward to (he meeting thnt awaited her
wns prolonged, after a disturbed night,
through the hours that preceded luncheon.
Beaton had disappeared; only the weli'
dressed, self-possessed young person who
deigned to be her attendant cnine to
escort her back. This was no small
At luncheon there was only Mrs, Winington, who received her kindly, hut
with a subdued ami pensive air. "You

had exchanged greetings. "I feel qulle
good for nothing; I shall not be at horn,
to anyone, and at five we will take n

Edith followed her as it to execution.
Mis. Winington's privnte room was a
delightful apartment on the second
lloor^ with a large corner window commanding tho garden* in the rear, and
a glimpse of Hyde Park; simply tiiougli
must comfortably furnished, and adorned tvilli a few good pictures, a statuette
or two, and abundant llowers in chciee
c'lilnn bowls and vases. It was tie
llc-iously cool and fresh; the roar of th.
street came to them softened into a
ineilow undertone, deepening the sens«
of restfulness by the suggestion of ihc
mise nud straggle without,
"It Is terjnlnly delightful to be qnlel

Ihe light would full upon Edith, wlw
obediently took the seat indicated, "I

herself with a large Japanese fan; "but
it is difficult to begin, so I am going to

about it all."
"So am I," said Edith, coloring,, and
pressing h«r hands tightly together, liei
usual tranquil composure molting awaj
under Mrs. Winington's searching eyes.
"I have been dreadfully distressed, and
so afraid you would be angry with me."
"Angry with vol1' Why sJinnld I bs

she was so overwhelmed with .u sense,
Of her own guilt.

There was a pause,
"My greatest regret," began Edltb
again, "is to have disappointed you in
any way. You have done so much for

The color rose brightly in her oheeki,
and her quiet, truthful eyes looked Into
Mrs. Winington's with such path "tie
earnestness that she was touched, and
she thought that real hearty love and
belief were worth deserving, even from
an obscure little country girl. But she
repressed such sentimental weakness at
''I hope you core for me a little, Edith.

not. Though his general health is g:.. d,
he could not stand the hardships of
such an undertaking. Indeed 1 do not
believe that IxisUe could have felt anything so Intensely; he was ns whit' ns
a sheet." Mrs. Winington fauned herself vehemently, as If much moved.
Edith's eyes grew larger aud Iarg r
us she listened, her souse of evil she
had Wrought deepened, and her instinctive credulity vanished before Ihe gravity of Mrs, Winington's looks aud tones.
To doubt a syllable of what thu.t in-
coniparnblj pers>»age assorted never
crossed her mind, still it wos most incomprehensible. Yet tho image conjured up by Mrs. Winington's description affected her deeply. Sho tremble],
and the tears rose to her eyes.
"I wiFh I had never conic to be a
trouble, to you!" she sobbed. "What a
loturn this Is for nil your goodness, t.nd
Mr. Beaton's goodness! I am v'oiy
grateful to him for caring so much aboiti

"Oh, I suppose he could not nelp that,"
h.ternipod Mrs. Whiingtoii with a Rid
smile. "I know that sonic little time
ago he explainei. 'lis intentions fully to
yeur guardiuns and secured their full
consent, so that no difliculiy sjumld occur in case he could win yours."
"Whnt ehnll I do? what shall I do?'
snid Edith,  unconsciously, nlond.
"Are you in larnest when you ask me
what you shall do, Edith?" nsked Mis.
Winington; "and will you believe th-it
I am disinterested In the advice I offer?"
"Believe you! Of course I bc-lleve
yon thoroughly!"
"Then let matters stand as Ihey are.
Poor Leslie has run away to bury Mm-

"You should certainly not dislike I,l:n!

"Oh, rest tranquil, my dear girl, I am

Edith hurried away, and Mrs. Win-
Irgton, rising to fetch a French novel

slh'ht sigh.
"She Is a nice lit tio thing, and I do

On reaching his hotel, however, he
found a letter which compelled even an
earlier start. It wns from Major Maitland informing .him that his mother had
taken a chill, -and hnd been ntt,acl;c*1
with bronchitis; that although there w s
no very immediate 'danger, it would be
veil if he could return homo nt once.
Maitlanil was startled, something in t'.io
tt lie of the communication alarmed hi u.
Mrs. Maitland wns a gentle, fragile
woman. When her younger son was iu
disgrace with all the world she had
clung to him, and written him, nud
scTciped small gifts of money out of her
very narrow house allowance to help
him In his hour of need. This Jack
never forgot. He loved his mother with
all the strength of his .steady heart. Ho
knew that his father, although considered a model husband, was trnnnicil
and Unsympathetic. lie would no doubt
bitterly lament his hiss, wore his wifj

In his incmory.nnt in tho meantime he
never entered Into her thoughts or fc. 1-
i'ngs, or considered tho needs of hor
inner nature. Her daughters wero married,' and provided with cares of tiheir
own, apd Jack well knew the loneliness
of the patient little woman when he
was not with her.
There wns lime enough to cat a morsel
ot dinner, pay his bill and start by th'
8.80 train from King's Cross. He con d
thus reach home by noon next clay, nnJ
he was determined not to leave it till he
saw his mother restored to her ordinry
health. Ho wrote a hasty line of excuse
to Mrs. Winingtoa and with a hmvy
heart, both for the cares ho was leaving
behind and those he was going to moat,
was soon speeding, northward as fast

Mrs. Winington's dinner was losa lively than usual. Colonel Winington had
Insisted on inviting two tiresome constituents who did not know how to talU,
nud Mnitland wns absent; so wns Ed th.
to whom her hostess had said kindly ns
they returned from their drive, "I dure
soy, dear, you would rather lie down nnd
rest, or get into yonr dressing-gown nnd
read a novel, than put on evening cos
tumo nnd sit down to dinner."
"Yes, I Bhould greatly prefer it. I
want to write Mrs. Miles too. 1 <Ud
not send her n letter yesterday and I
rarely miss doinj; so on Wednesday. I
know she always looks for one.''
Edith stayed very contentedly in h >r
room. ■ She pondered long, and deeply
on all Mrs, Winitigloti had said, and
wished, oh, so nrdently that she
could please every ono by accepting Be i-
ton. Why did site not love h.m? Perhaps she would grow to like him by nnd
by. If she dared siioak to Mr, Mait-
land nbout il! But thnt wns not to be
dreamed of; she blushed nt the idea.
Colonel Winington, who had been always friendly to his wife's quiet littl.
iwotegoo, inquired tho reason of her absence nnd expressed the hope that all
wa. going ou well between her and Bia-
"Oh, as well as can be expected," returned his wife, laughing. "She is a
good little simpleton, nnd not too read.,
to take up an idea."
"1 don't tind'h.r dull by any means,'1
slid Colonel Winlnglon. "It is quite a
relief to meet any oue who does not aim
nt talking epigrams. Now I must hi.
you goodnight, Lndy Mary, if I un.v
not.escort you home."
The company hnd by this time dispersed, and the colonel wus going to
look in at the "House," which wns a
sort of ciub to him.
"No, tirank you. Good-night Are
you going to make a speech?"
"No, no. I only express my opinfois
by my vote.,"
"The beBt wny, I imagine," said Lady
Mary as he left the room.   "He is leal...
{ a good fellow, Jean.    You are a lucky
"I dare sny I am. Now do stay and
let me talk to you. I want to hear what
Leslie said yesterday. I hope you scolded him for his folly, his rashness."
"Your brother certainly came to pom
his sorrows into my sympathizing boom," said Lady Mary. "But I cenfes
ray warmest sympathy lias been exetoj
by his being obliged to marry such a
noodle. She will bore him to death, F,ut
there, it seems if he does not many be

"I regret to soy it is of no use, for I
find your brother very nice, and most
amusing. What'an idiot Miss Vivian is
to refuse him!"
"Yea. I fancied it would have been
a case Of 'I onmG— I saw—I conquered,'
with Leslie and Edith Vivian. I cannot
understand her indifference."
"Well, I think I do," remarked lady
Mary, dryly, as she arranged tlio flowejn
that adirned her dross."
"You do? \vtiy, trnut do you lne.tn'i
What nre jrou hinting at?' cried Mils.
Winington eagerly.
"I think, Jeau, you arcjjnito as foolish and n good deal blinder than your
brother, Edith Vivian does -not cure fo.
Mr. Be-aton because she hns already
fallen in Iovo with that interesting com-
-paiilon of youv childhood.''        •
"You cannot believe sueli an absurdity," cried Mrs, Winlnglon, Hushing
from throat to brow. . "Why. I never
thought of sin u a  thing,"
"That I quite believe," significantly.
"I am n quiet, Indolent creature, I lot
others do Ihe talking, but I see a good
deal. Your brother hns been taken Up
with me, you luiro'beon taken up wl h
your rather Innmche friend, and 1 have
watched you all,"
"And what hare you Been?'1 nsked Mrs.
Winington in a Jow tone, keeping her
eyes carefully cast down.
"I have seen Miss Vivian's fncp; whenever Sir. Mnitland apponsr it lights up
iu the most wtuideiful way. I don't
think the Utile goose is the least conscious of her own feelings, she dots not
make the slightest attempt to conceal
hor gladness. I protest she warm, up
into absolute pitstthios. ns.'soon as he
conies. Sim she distrusts* Mr. Beaton,
sho Is hnlr nfiald of him."
"But how pri'iKiotorons of her to throw
a wny her pale fancies on Jack Mnitland,
who scarcely  notices hor."
"Ah! nre you sure he does not? My
impression is, thnt not a look, not o
word of hers escapes him."
"Come, eoine, this is more than observation; it Is creative power."   •
I<idy Mary shook her head. "Your
fiiend has very expressive eyes, as I
dare say you know, aud they have told
me more than bo imagines. I have seen
them dwell on your intended sister-in-
law with a look such as no man cviT
bestowed except on Ihe woman ho loved.
I am disposed lo think ho is consider-
i lily further gone than sho is."
"It is impossible," snld Mrs. Winington, in n low deep tone.
"Oh, it you like to ihink'so. Just Icihlt
back over tho last four or five weeks.
How much more he lias been at your
house since Edith Vivig^i went Into training under your supervision. Remember
that dinner nL_ the Orleans Club, our
expedition to Kew. Maitland hnd a
good half-hour's practical tote-a-tetJ
with her at both places; indeed it might
j hnve been -longer M Richmond, had I
not been disinterested enough to send
Mr. Benton to hrenk if. tip."
I Mrs. Winington was silent for a few
moments, her rich color fntling nwny,
and then said with nn effort:
"I do not think Jack would try to cut
out Leslie."
'Tei-hnps. But once n mnn is in love
I should not give much for his good resolutions."
"Really, dear, you don't seem to believe there is such a thing as principle."
"Oh, yes, I do; but, as the railway
people say of their iron girders it Is
c-riiy as strong as its weakest part. Yoiu-
first love looks solemn and resolute
enough, but I suppose he is no stroaigw
than his neighbors. You know nil about
that, no doubt, much better than any
one else."
"There is some difference between a
boy and a man. At nny rate Maitland
is far away, ot will be far away tomorrow. He has been recalled to CiaJg-
rothie by his mother's illness."
"Well, keep him at n distance," .aid
Lndy Mary, rising; "It will bo bettor
for nil parties. I must leave yon now,
for I promised to call for Mr. Brown
at his club ,nnd take him to Lndy l>ir-
rington's ball—the denr old man has a
romantic Iovo for titles."
"I hope affairs are progressing
smoothly between you nnd the great
'Go-bong?' "
"Yes, saisfactorily; so much so, that
I almost regret I bestowed that very appropriate nicknnme. I am nfrtlid it Will
stick, but perhaps when I have cured
him of boasting it may die away. Goodnight, Jean; are you going to bed like'
a sober" citizen?" "
"I am. I have had a horrible hond-
nche all day. This worry about Leslie
hrs upset mc."
They exchanged adieus, nnd the observant Lady Mary went down to hor
carriage, while Sirs. Winington rung and
ordered the lights to be extinguished :'n
the rei'eptiou-rooms, and then went
rapidly to her own,
As soon as she could dispense with her
maid she dismissed her, and threw herself into a large chair to think—to review Lady Mary's horrible suggesliins.
Hnd she been so fooled and blinded
as to rejoice in the frequent lingering
visits which were due to another's attractions? Was tho secret of that indifference she so fondly hoped wcn.d
warm into something of-,tho old ardor,
to bo found in awakening Iovo for thit
colorless, insignificant chit whom she
hnd loaded with kindness and really liked? What a Nemesis! The more ;ho
strove to reject tho idea, tbe more corroborative tritlos rose In her memory to
Indorse Lady Mury's revolting suspicions.
It wns bitter, very bitter to the pioud,
passionate woman who best knew what
advances sho had mude to a mnn who,
she bt'gnu reluctantly to believe, was shielded by the strongest
armor, affection for another. Nothing
could be more maddening. She had
been puzzled by the contradiction between his readiness to spend hours with
her, und his increasing coldness, It was
all too evident. She did not know 111
now how he hnd absorbed her. She
meant no harm, sho told herself; only
once more tp catch an echo of the roil-
ardent love which had cast Its hi ell
upon her youth, and which she longed
for amid the frothy imitations of the
mocking, frivolous world in which she
lived and moved and hnd her being. It
wns wrong nnd bad, but she could not
restrain a fit of angry, passionatu weeping when she thought "of the past, and
how cruelly the present revenged it, Yot
she never for on instant regretted hor
own heartless conduct. To be poor, and
necessarily self-denying, was something
not to be thought of for- her, although
she wns prepnred .to pay denr for cof,*-
ttin joys. To see Mnitland once more
ut hor feet, to tell him she loved him,
and bid him leave hor forever, this
would be joyl But it he ever got this
length, would ho go?
Ah, well, there was no .use tliinkiiur
about it. What needed hor whole fo:co
of mind nnd resolution wns to nccom-
plish her brother's marriage with Edith
Vivian. •
"Kim shall I>» bis wifa within is>
weeks," she muttered, rising fmui tlio
cushions where she hnd writhed in im
potent rage, "She 6hall bo safely out
of Maitland'. reach long before they
meet again."
She bathed her swollen eyes, and
leaned from the open window to cool her
burning forehead.
At length the rallying power of a fixed resolution calmed her. Sho turned
to her writing-table, drew a chair, and
uftor a minute's thought wrote a enro-
fuily-wordcd letter to Jack Maitland—
a charming, sympathetic epistle which
Colonel Winington might hnve rend with

The idoals ol, .ocioty which gtlido
tho activity of men are modiiled,
and, according; to theso modifications
tlio order of human lifo changes also.
There was a lima when tho ideal of
society was absolute animal liberty,
by which, according to their powers,
both literally und figuratively, eomo
devoured others. Following camo th.
time when tho social ideal was the
supremacy of one, when all men
ail ore their potentates, and not only
voluntarily, but with enthusiasm
submitted  to   them.
Then men had for their ideal an
arrangement of life during which
power wus suffered not for oneself,
but in order to establish order in the
lives of men at largo. Tbo attempts
for thu realization of similar idoals
endured a certain period—universal
monarchy, then the Unlvei'snFohtiroh!
uniting and guiding various states.
Next appeared tho Idea of national
representation, thun that of the republic, with universal or limited suffrage. To-day it is thought that
this ideal can bo attained when organization will bo such that tho instruments of labor shall censo to bo
privuto property and will be the possession of tho entlru people.
Men are beginning to understand.
And now they need to loarn that
thero is only ono means of realizing
a good human lifo—to profos* and to
practice tho religious doctrine which
is accossiblo to tho majority of men.
And it is only when they will profess and practice this religious doctrine that they will bo ablo to attain tlio ldoal which has boon born

Tho New York Herald has tho following from London: "Nowadaya
ninety-nine women out of a hundred
wear wigs!"
This somewhat Btartlin^ statement
which rests on tho authority of Mrs.
Stannard, more widely known as
"John Strnngo Winter," author of
"Bootlo's Baby,'' is the outcome ot
n discussion raised by Mr. Qoorgo,
Alexander on tho subject of dross at
evening theatrical performance, in
Mrs. Stannard writes to Tha Daily
Telegraph: "When Mr. George Alexander touches upon tho great quos-
lion of feminine headgear, then he IS
trenching upon ground which is difficult to troad .without disaster. Ho
evidently does not realize the truth,
which is this—that nowadays ninety-
hino womoq out of a hundred wear
wigs and the woman who woars a
wig is tho .lave of that articlq of
adornment. Ii sho is a rich woman
she has ono wig for tho .afternoon to
ft'onv with her hat, and sho has another wig for the evening to wear
without a bat. In nino cases out of
ton sho cannot take her hat off because! sho would not bo sure of- tho
disclosures such an act would make.
1 know this is so,, because in my day
I have myself .worn, a wig. That day
has happily gpno^liy, and, I hope, forever, slnco I havo discovered how to
make my hair Rl'.ow.' To wear a hat
with nn evening wig would bo too
extravagant for any but tho most
wealthy mid to appear in a theatre
in n wig which docs duty very well
by daylight with a hat would bo to
risk that which tew .women would

It takes a peculiar knock to wear a
shirt waist well and specially will the
new Spring shirt waists require some
talent In this direction. The general
characteristic of the waist is that It
Is long in the front and Is cut to give
a woman a great sweeping line from
th* chin to the belt. It Is also long on
the shoulders and everything possible
Is done to get the 1830 curve.
With this long front sweep, this unbroken line from chin to belt, this low
shoulder effect and the great wrist
puffs, woman must do her utmost to
stand.erect, or the grace of thl. shirt
waist will be lost. It is a waist which
requires a woman of fine shoulders and
wide, full belt.
Perhaps graceful would be the best
description of the shirt waist as It is
now seen. It Is a picture waist In
many respects, but It Is a very refined
picture, without one discordant note.
More than anything else Is embroidery used. In fact, the laces are giving
way somewhat to the embroidery fad
and whole waists are covered with
stltchery and sleeves are made fairly
heavy with It. There are waists which
are embroidered from side to Bide with
from one sleeve to the other with
scarcely an Inch left uncovered.

The afternoon shirt waist will play
an important part in the world of
fashion. It must be made of washable material and must be all hand
made, even to the sewing of the seams.
Its color is white and the manner In
which It Is trimmed Is most charming.
A woman who makes her own ahlrt
waist* purchased ready made a very
handsome but very plain shirt waist
of fine white linen. All over the yoke
she placed an embroidery of French
knots, and for the making of the knots
she used a changeable red and blue
When she had thoroughly peppered
the yoke with these knots' she outlined
It with a band of white wash silk. And
bordering this band she placed a little
trimming of white fringe. She chose
fringe a finger deep and sewed It to the
edge of the yoke, letting It fall over
the bust and over the shoulders. This
gave the long shouldered, 1830 effect,
and looked very quaint In these days
of fringe revivals.
Then, taking a couple of dozen of
little lace Insets, she let them Into the
waist; and, all around the edge of each
little lace Inset, she worked a hand embroidery pattern, surrounding It with
French knots. Then she completed the
walet by sewing a. little turnover lace
on the neck and the cuffs.
And there Is another style of afternoon waist, and this Is the waist
which Is In plain colors, In light lawn,
In buff, blue red and green linen, and
the waist which Is made of heavy cotton stuffs. This sort of waist is trimmed with lace insets and with bands
of lace and with little lace medallion*
until It becomes very delicate In workmanship, looking very much like a
work of art from one of the real lace
"Sleeves will be of two kinds," said
a modiste, "open and closed. One will
be about as fashionable as the other
and it will be a question purely of
choice. You can have the bell, which
Is flaring at the elbow, and which Is
to be worn over an undersleeve. Or
you can have tho great melon shaped
sleeve, which Is caught In under a narrow cuff at the wrist. For my part I
prefer the elbow bell as dressier.
"If you want to finish your sleeves j
In very fine fashion," continued the
modiste, "cut them off at the elbow,
let them cut In a full bell and finish
the bell with a white cotton fringe.
Above the fringe sew a flat band of
white silk ribbon or white washable
"There Is another way to finish your
bell sleeve whlcluhould be only a little longer than the elbow. Take It ana
finish It In points and under each point
set a longer point of lace. Between the
points hang two white silk balls. This
makes a very dressy finish for the
There Is one precious  stone that.Is
Imitated so perfectly, and these Imitations are bo expensive, that their use Is
now sanctioned by the majority of cut
tured people of good taste.   This exception    Is   the   pearl,    for   everyone
knows that pearls, real ones, Oriental
pearls, the size of peas, are very expensive, costing from one hundred to
three hundred dollars   each,   so when
one sees a beautiful string of pearls
around the neck of a woman who 1*
not the wife or daughter of a millionaire, or  the owner of  large  property
herself, one may be very sure that her
gems are an exquisite Imitation,   These
Imitations ore heavy, durable and quite
as beautiful as the real pearl In color
and luBtre, although they undoubtedly
would melt If put In vinegar.   No one
does that nowadays, for Cleopatra's experiment has   never    been   emulated
Therefore It is not considered bad taste
for a woman to wear Roman pearls or
even those of French manufacture as
long as they are artistically beautiful
of themselves.   These strings cost anywhere   from   twenty-five  to one hundred dollars, so they do not come un-
I der the head of cheap Jewellry.   There
Is another Imitation that may be worn
also   without   offending   good   taste.
Anything that Is rare, or of great antiquity, or curious and yet attractive,
may be worn with perfect   propriety.
In fact, there is quite a rage for these
unusual findings.   I saw one In Paris of
old sliver setting filled  with large topazes surrounded with  tiny  Imitation
diamonds, and I could    Imagine how
well It would look around the neck of a
grande dame with    white    hair.   Another, seen in St Merit*, Was n.' uncut
rubles and sapphire, set  In nn .Intricate' design of different colored enamel, and Its price was reasonable enouga
to convince one that the Jewels were
not real, and yet It would be a charming adjunct to the most  elegant costume.
