Mr. Meade thrust his hands deep  into his pockets and frowned . o"*'cr  ��� this question; the candle Jburnt  down, ho lighted another, and tho  two went on discussing the question  till hard upon midnight.  CHAPTER H.  All the next day Mr. Mea'de pondered silently upon Sir Arthur Mcd-  way's interview with - him, until  evening came again, and the children  were gone  to  bed.  'Then you said, 'Plea-re don't leave  mo, Mr. Arcade; I'm that fiightenod!'  And that put it into my head to  say, 'I'll never leave yc, my dear, if  you'll promise to go to church, with  mc, afore two, months arc gone'  And so 't w'astdone, but it drove tho  sweat out of me, and you was all  of a tremble in a pink Sunday gown,  and the church bells "ringen. And  the old gander kept on hissing and  running, so I was forced to keep my  arm round ye all the way across  common 1 never hear "a goose hiss  but I think on*'t," ho added, pon-  bivcly.  '"T wasn't tho ilrst lead T gavo  yc, either," laughed Arra. Mo.idc,  biiphtcning at those tender icollections; "but there, courten is"liko a  cool hand at pastry; its born with  some, and there aie thoso can't do  it to savo their-lives. < 'Mat Meade's  that nog-headed,' Cousin Jane used  to say, 'I'd rather die an old maid  uinn put up with such 'a duch chap.'.  But I thought to myself, 'Matt  Moado has a good heaclpicec enough,  if ho is _ wanting in tongue. I've  enough for 'both. And courten is only wanted  ove a lifetime.' "  "1 don't doubt things aie ordered  right," Afr. Moado commented;^ "but  it seems a pity tho com ten '* isn't  done hy tho women.

You was- a pretty maid,  Martha; not that I was one- to be  took by a pretty face," be added,  Fcverely, knowing that female vanity  dies hard "No, ray dear, I somehow seemed set on ye, I didn't know  why. Whether 'twas the dairy, or  tho cookjng, or the goodness of-heart  drew mo on, I can't lightly say. But  I was that dull, and 'drug the days  I didn't'get a sight of yo.

'Tis but light he  should know how he was come by  and what he've got to look -to.  Let en chooso for hissclf."  Mi'i. Meade demurred at throwing  such a.icsponsibility, on a child of  nire yeais.  "It's like this," Meade replied;  "there's no lawyer living"; not the  Lord Chancellor bisself, can make mc  , believe I haven't a right to a boy  I've took and btcd up from his  cradle and been a father to.j But  ��� Sir Arthur, he've got a right over  the child, too. and 'tis plain . a��  plums we can't both hov him, and  only the Lord, himself can judgo between .us. ' I've' tried opening , tho  Bible hap-hazard, but can't light  upon what'll serve the turn. Only I  come to 'Out of the mouths of babes  and sucklings' twice, and it was  borne in upon me that Philip must  settle for himself."'  Tho argument was unanswerable,  nnd in much grief and ticpidation,  Mrs. Mcac.'o a'ceented the oflicc of ac-  guainting Philip wnh tho choice that  lay beforo him.  "Lither tongues," Mr. Arcade continued, "was never meant for men  folk Martha I never was good at  putting words to what's going on  inside of me. Think I can, as well  as any man. But darned if I can  tell what I'm thinking of You may  mind the time it took me to come to  the point when courting "  "To bo sure, Alcade," she replied,  with feeling, "1 did think you was  never going to say 'mum,' and folk  knew I was ready to say 'budget,'  and thero was a laugh against mc  in all the country-side. 'If you can't  bring him on, Patty, you'd better  throw him off,' Cousin ' Jane hove  said many a time; 'if he had any  r.ouse, he'd a known it was time to  speak up long ago.' .'Whatever we  should ha' done if it hadn't boon for  grandmother's groat gander, I don't  know; kept wivcrin' on till now, J  reckin."  o "Right," icplied Meade, giavcly;  "you're right, Martha, but even the  giit gander would ha' ben nothing  without your tongue. I boat the  gander off of ye, and you.'cried and  clung on to me,:-'and there I stood  like a girt zote and' couldn't toll for  the life of mo what to say next. It  did .seem that simple to blurt' out,  'Marry.mo. Martha,' all of a sudden  right in.'tlio middle of the common  with, tho wild gander an'd all the  geese staring and hissing at us. I'd  given ye a kise but I had to keep  vxy eye on that gander nil the time.  to conjugal propriety and their advancing years "What was I a-say-  ing ? v Words is wliat I not or could  handle easy.

Thus it came to Pass that Mrs  Meade ascended-the .sleep creaking  stair and went into the dim little  attic in the ghostly twilight, lior  footsteps on the uncarpcled boards  rousing the sleeping boy.' _ ���  '  "Mother," he cried, staiting1 up,  "I didn't take the plums, indeed I  didn't.",  "Bear heart alive," said Mis.  Meade, "who's thinkii.g of plums ?^I  know who had them, my dear, and  it wasn't you. You'io never slir.ted  in anything that's good for children,  so you wouldn't take plums, and  you'\e never told me-a lie, yet,  Philip."  Philip lay back on the pillow and  wondered il the fowls had got into  the garden when ho left the gate  open. "  ������Bojs." said Mrs. Meade, giving  him a kiss and cai clully tucking in  tho bed-clothes he had dashed asiSc,  "arc made that lilher and sprack  they can't bide quiet long together,  they're bound to be m some mischief  toaiing and siling clothes, upsetting  and breaking things, and stabbbng  all over tho house.

"I did mean to shut tho gate,"  said riiilip,   "but  I forgot."  "Never mind the gate, my dear,  but mind to shut him next time,"  she continued, smoothing the sheet  under his chin. "For a' boy you've  been a good boy, and me. and ,your  fathcr      has     never   repented, taking  here Mrs.  Meade's voice fail-  ban d-  you-  ed her and she took out her  kerchief to rhihp's dismay.  "Taking me?" he'asked, aftor/ a  pause;   "where from ?" '  "From tho workhouse," she replied. "Nobody know so much as  your surname when your poor mother died and left ye, and there was  nothing for it 'but the workhouse, if  Matthew hadn't come along and  thought of them We'd lost and had  it borne in upon him he was to tako  and'breed you up in their place."  Philip liad seen ihe workhouse  boys in their thin and poor uniform  at some holiday gathering in which  they were included, he had marked  their pinched and often vicious faces  Olceve had been tried for ill-treating  a young workhouse appionlioe and  ho had stolen Into the court to hear  tho case. He wound his stout little  arm into that of the kind soul who  had been a mother to him, and sho  kissed 'him and stroked the thick  hojr off his foiohead. Then she told  him how Matthew had brought him  home one night, that he was of gentle blood and of an origin known to  Sir- Arthur, who wished to educate  him with his own sons.  fAll this, in spite of her husband's  tribute -to hor eloquence and- Philip's  eager interest nnd frequent questioning sho clTocted not without difficult'  and much digicssion and repetition.'  -"But mother, what is my name?"  ho asked for at least the ninth time  for ho, was tiicd out with eight  evad\e .answers to this important  question.  "Afy dear," she replied, on being  thus 'brought to bay, "it's little  chance you have of keeping, the Fifth  Commandment with jour poor mother .���in her ' grave this seven years.  It's only her dying wishes 'you can  obey, which is, you was to bo called  Philip Randal and ask no questions"  Philip sighed; he had long since  discovered thai tho whole duty of  youth consisted in not'asking questions,, and the whole inteiost and> |oy  of youth in doing so. ITo gave Airs.  Meade's-ample foim a tight squeeze  and asked if he, was to'bo sent to  Marwell   Couit  lo   live.  "Not- if you 'don't want to go,  my, dear," sho replied, tendetly  stroking his hair on which the biigh't  silver of the moon���now shimmered  "Mo and your father wants to keep  you bad enough, but no can't bi ing  oui selves' to stand in jour light,  Phil.

Meade  went  on to  speak     of  college    education  and'of.   expenses,  leaching    far     into      manhood.      of  launching     a     youth in any profession.      "Then,  my   dear,"* she     continued,      "jour   father and me     are  plain   -people,    though    comfortable;  and wc.    know  ^manners'as  well    as  most;   and J. will say that for Mearii*.  never ,a bad woid conies out of    his  mouth,    and   always * takes  his     hat  off to  his     bctteis    ar-cl  aggtavatit-g  as .Cousin Jane may be, while .under  his  roof he's  never  nothen  but  civil  toiler.'

But this lowness of spirits was completely fo'gotton when  l.o icached Marwell Court, which ho  had soon many a, time from a distance but onlj* once ontcicd. On  that occasion ho was staying with  Cousin Jane, the wife of a burner in  the neighborhood, nnd aceom*>a-led  her on a visit .to the house-keeper,  who patted him on the head, which  ho did not like, and gave him plvim-  cako and currant ( wine, vvhkh he  did.  That lie might ever be master of  that fine building did not enter  among tho many thoughts jostling  in Ins email brain as ho swept up the  avenue, past one wing and rci'icd in  before a wide poiticoed 'cut'nnce-  Like a dreamer,' ho got down ' f om  the dog-cait and"* went up'the steps  and through doois magicallj- fljiug  open of themselves to a'dmit him  Heio we.e tall splendidly dre'reed  gentlemen in colored velvets, silK,  and gold, their heads more floury  than those of the men at the mill at  home; kind and polite in spite of  their bewildo'ing splendor, No longer Phil Randal, the miller's'boy, but  a fairy prince penetrating to the  heart': of some, dark enchantment, he  passed through a spacious and beautiful hall|P with a 'shining' mai'bln  floor, with pictures on tho walls and  white figures poised on pedestals like  wingless angels ready for flight, with  rich' hangings half-shrouding doors  and windows, and was.'almost'startled when the handsome lad who had  S4?.  ����� -teat  "Hullo, Randal, here you ara at  lrist," cned Claude, bringing the  fniry prince fi om ' 1 cgions of dim enchantment to the solid earth with a  bounce. "How aie you ? Come to  my mother's  room "  Philip ans'veiod him in a da/ed  wav and followed him upstaii s ind  along thick-cnrrctcd conido-s to a  room full of stiange flower-scents  and  pale blue fatin.  "Lady Ge. liude's room," Claude  said befoi e he opened the door, in a  low tone that implied something like  awe.   -     -    -  ,-       ;   _.  "This is Philip Randal, mother,"  he said, presenting him to' the boau-  liful, plainly-dressed, ladj- reclining  by  the  open "window."  "So you a-e Philip," sho said,  looking thoughtfully*at himT  "Yes, if j-ou please, ma'am,"/ he  replied, lespcclfullj-; "and I--have a  mother, too,"'lie added, standing in  front of her and lesting his elbow  on th'* arm; "she sent her duty to  you."  , "So you are not afraid of us ?''  sho asked, smiling as Phi'ip supposed that angels smile,', and ca'easing his lovoronl, upturned face with  hor dainty'-hand, white as a lily and  soft  as  a   rote-leal. _ "*"  '.'No, ma'am. " An'd I like j-our"  house, though it's the biggest-1 e\or  was in.  "Do, you like "small houses - best,  Philip ?"  "Well, you see,' I've, been used to  small 'houses 'all my' life," ho explained,, "and just at first a big  one feels strange. Besides, I 'didn't  know that people lived in such hue  places."  "1 hope you will be happj- in "our  house," she said, giaciously; "Claude  will show j'ou everything. Run away  now, boys, and^don't get into moie  mischief than you  can help."  Philip, kissed the hand that was  under 'his chin with a natural unconscious grace that gave pleasure, nnd  tho boys left,the room, Claudo with  an  air  of  idief. '  "By Jove, Phi'ip," he said when  they w'cie outsicio the door, "you've  made a (onque.st of hor ladj'ship.  She can't bear boj-s." * And, taking  him to the library to .Sir Aithur," he  forthwith,"to Philip's surpii^e, do-  scribed tho interview "with Lady Ger-  I crude, at the iccital, of which Sir  Arthur smiled and pinched Pliihp's  ear. ��� "A born "'courtier,"1 he said, enigmatically. Then sending Claude  awuj*, he spoke to Philip of his oii-  gin> and his intentions concerning  him, as Mrs. N Meade had aliendy  done.       , ' V ' ,  ' "Your foster-father," ho said, in  conclusion, ��� "wishes - you to do exactly what you like best. ITe is  quito ready to givc'up all claims  upon you, if you like to live with us  and share my son's education 'and  other advantages. r Theie is a pony,  for you alicady. You will go , to  school with Hugh till you are both  i oady for Eton. Run away - with-  Claudo now."  Dismissing him with a wave of tho  hand, Sir Arthur dismissed the sub'  ject as well, consideiing the event of  Philip's prefei ring 'Stillbrooke to  Mai well as too improbable to be  taken  into  account.  Tho few di*ys spent at Marwell  seemed months to Philip, everything  being so new and strange. Claudo  and Hugh were capital "companions,  fori a boy ...without brothers the  younger children and the little girls,  loo. we.e companionable. ' There was  so,much to enjoy, such va-tiety of  games and pastimes, so manj* books,  so manj* objects of inlo:ost, such  space for play. Claude oven had a  gun, besides Ti'-hir g-i ocs, crickot-  bats.a cai penters' tools, .and a boat.  Their rides in tho. park were delightful; the pretty shjejed deer"  ttai ling away from them, tl c pale  gray mass of masonry e\eiywheie  .showing-it--elf in some'new "and imposing light, tlie large giudcns, the  home farm, tho hanicrs, all cither  pleased'him or impressed-his fancy.  I!p liked to go with the othei* children _after dinner Into the long drawing-room, opening into a long vista  of drawing-iooms, and gloiided when  he fust saw it, by a blaze of sunset  falling thiough the, tall .wcslcrn windows, ho ^vandeierl at the . ladies'  gleaming arms and shouldeis, iheir  jewels and silken il'-thes, and likod  their gentle mannc: s and refined ac-  cen t.  "Well. Philip," said La'dy Gertrude, when ho stole up to a position  behind her sofa just after dinner,  "do you still think this a beautiful  bouse V And what do you think the  most beautiful  thing  in   it ?"'  "You, ma'am," ho icplied, without  hesitation to the gieat amusement  of some ladies staying in the house,  who wore near.  11 was a now wonder after this  glimpse of enchantment, to sec tho  fami'iar hedge-rows and. fields floating rast him in tho summer sunset  when ho  was  driven homo again.  ITc arrived 3ust as dusk was falling-; the lamps shono sparse and dim  in tho g*ay streets and we; c reflected from the bridge in tho still mill-  etream and there, under tho planc-  tiec, sat Mrs. Mcudc fn her homely  familiar, dress, with Jessie half-  aslccp on hor knee, an'd there, issuing: from the green shadows, * was  Matthew  himself.  How g!ad thoy were sec hlin again,  how Jessie clung to him, and how  pleasant and co-sey the homelike parlor seemed with the candle . lig-litqd,  the supper spreaii'^and Sarali coming  in with smiles of welcome.      "  '"Take your time, Phil, take your  time," his father said after .supper,,  when questioning him about his visit; "mind, it's for life, so don't 'decide in a. /hurry.'

One  can  slight the ironing.'  1  do   it���but  it  goes   awfully     against  tho grain,   for  il"  there  is  one    thing  I  like  to  see it  is  the  bars full   of  white,   nicely  ironed 'clothes.      There  is one short cut I 'do not approve of  ���and that is, tho use of gray cotton  blankets as  sheets to  save  washing.  It  is not very  sanitary to  say     the  least.   They're     all   right if washed  often enough, but I heard a girl say,  "Why���they, save  so  much  washing !  Wo  didn't 'havo" to  wash  them     last  winter,      and   haven't    washed  them  this."       "(It was    March).    I      said :  "Didn't you wash them last spring?"  She said : "No, we Kung them on the  line and aired them good." I should  think  they needed  it.   i   may  be  an  old fogy���not up-to-date���but I want  my sheets  washed  every  week.  Ono day, when I was almost tired  to death (or thought I was), I said  to my husband : "Oh, 'dear I wish  some one would tell me some short  cuts to housekeeping."  Man like, he answered, "I can tell  you���do  less work."  -"T don't sec how you would manage that. The work is hero to do;  it must be done, and only one pair  of hands to 'do it." There were some  pies on the table I had made that  day and he said :  "Quit    making pios.   Wc can  along   without     them."

Aro women meaner in giving than  men? .It cannot rightly bo urged  that they are. Women, after all, in  buying or in giving arc commonly  making uso of money' that others  have earned. They, have been trustees off other people's ' money for 2,-  Q0O years, and long uso has made  them careful of-thelr trust. Of course  the, petty .meannesses of a ceitain  kind of woman have afforded infinite  opportunities for men's jests and  contempt, but those p"etty meannesses  are nothing in comparison with tho  trreat meannesses of really sordid  men. |  Don't think because a name looks  attractive on a visiting card that the  paying teller of a bank would iccog-  ni<��* it at the bottom of a check.
