McClure      fa,  "The gray hats aren't a very pretty  shade this year," said "the saleslady.  "Brown would look well with your  hair.  Here's a beauty."  -Til take this gray one." said Elsie,  unheeding. ,.  In her own room she put the lint on  and studied 'herself intently in the mirror. Brown would have been more becoming, she decided. She was too pale  for gray now.  It had been six years since she had  made that promise. It was. just as she  bade him goodby. "You look like a pink  rose in that gray hat,'thirling," he had  said. "I shall expect to see your dear  face under just such a hat when 1  come home." So for six years, summer  and winter, she had worn a gray hat���������"  six, years in which'she had. heard from  him but twice and that shortly after  , he left.  But she believed in him, loved,'excused him. Aweary sometimes, but  never despairing, she remained steadfast. He had gone to Africa; that was  so far away and offered so many fine  excuses. She feared always for his  safety, but never his constancy.  It was a pretty face the mirror held,  a sweet, womanly face,'.with a happy  girlish smile. She turned away 'With a  little sigh and went lightly down the  steps into the street. It was a holiday,  and school teaching was serious work  with conscientious Elsie Wentworth.  She was glad of the rest, the day outdoors, the sunshine and pure air.  "Where are you going. Elsie?"  It was a man's voice and a man's  eyes that gazed into hers, both telling  their love for the slender creature in  the gray bat.  A rich glow came to her pale cheeks.  So stalwart aud determined, she felt  afraid of him, afraid he would make  her love him, make her faithless to  poor, absent Dave.  "I'm going to see Mrs. Young'," she  "fa ltr-red. ~ ; ���������-  He laughed. "11's top had, dear. Go  on to Ihe woods, Elsie.

Her eyes grow troubled, plleou*. She  ���������did ������o want to see Hnvo, It dime ovor  her with u rush just how unhappy she  was. how lorn-some, nor lionrt ached  nlnioRt to blunting.

"TU������.r gray hut tiiU������-H  tbe color out of yuvn* face too.  Uray's  not becoming, Elsie. Get a blue one  next time."  "Or a green one." said Elsie irritably.  Brown, white, blue, had been recommended. Why not green,-red, purple?  she thought desperately. ,  "You are worn out, *thatfs sure," said  Sirs, Young.  Elsie took off the despised gray hat  and held it lovingly in her slim hands.  It comforted her. *She was soon chatting away gayly, but her head ached,  and there was a strange heaviness  weighing her down. She wanted to  cry instead of laugh.  "Wait." said ber friend as she was  ���������<���������';>���������. :ug,      "'1    j-Ui   a   {>,..,...,     ,,. .>. ,:i\.....

Thero  sure enough were Frank anil Annie,  Young, and���������Elsie clutched wildly at  the little e-mlbo-trd��������� Dave Brady, with,  a woman sitting archly".on his knee,  his <?yes gasing at her adoringly.  '"They had- tliem'taken that way just  for fun." explained.Mi's. Young. "Annie and Emma were friends ye.ivs ago.  and they camo across each'other-last  month at Manila. Tlu-yive bulb been-  married the same .length of tiim;- throe  years���������and there's not. a : mouth's dif-  feretK-b.in the ages of the children.  Emma's is a girl, though."  Elsie rushed blindly out of. 1 be house.  Dazed, she made her way home/the  pretty head sadly drooping under the  faithful gray, hat. -1 She laid if off -and  sat down beside it, and gave, way to  tears, tears that pride,, bad hold back  till she was away frots'; prying eyes.  Three years! And she wailing,  watching," hoping.' -loving. Wife and  baby.' home, love,' everything,"to' till  his life! And she? An orphan, living  alone, no ono to care whetb'eV.'she came',  or went, was glad or-sorrowful. She  sobbed on pitifully. Ail ��������� pight long  she lay awake, going over, year by  year, the time between.  It was almost morning before she  could believe that Dave was. actually  out of her life and���������and���������  She sat up in bed and laughed and  cried ail in a breath. It was most  wonderful. She climbed' out. of bed,  found the little gray hat and bit by  bit tore it into shreds. She laughed  again, then cried again and, all flushed and rosy, lay down and slept peacefully till long past sunup.  John Stewart sat in his office listening gravely to his patient recount his  ills. He gave him a proscription,  ���������smiled~asked-him-about-1 he-children,--  bowed him out, smiled again and sat  down to wait the next patient. They  came oftener now. A few years before  they had been few nnd far between.  The next one came In., slowly, a slender,    gmeeful    creature,    with    fair,'  flushed ..face peering out, shyly  from  unflei* a'soft white hat covei-ed with.  blue cornflowers,.the color of her eyes.  He turned quickly, gave one swift  look and caught: her in his arras. .,. [,r.  "Elsie, my'darling!"     , , |!  Dr. Stewart was ,certainly, not slow'  wittecl.      " ' '\  "When���������how?" he -questioned, kissing her all in a breath.  She put her anus around his neck  nnd hugged him tightly.  "Ever since I knew yon," slip, whispered,' "I've .wanted you���������you���������you!  Oh, Jack, I can never love you enough  to make up foi' whnt J'vemissed^"  Ho laughed, puzzled, but blissful,  "Then why?" lio.itsked.  She answered his kiss first, suit ling  nnd dimpled, then a trlglUenwI, look  fla'shtyl over the happy fnce, Whatoll, what if Dave had boon'true, hnd,  come back*! She hugged the doctor  ngnln. friiii tlcnlly.  "It: wns the gray lint," she cried.' "Tt  was n hoodoo, I tore It up Inst night.  I was iii'vi'i' so happy as while pulling  -It to pieces."

The Meaning- of "Mewi."  Pennant, the naturalist', and antiquary, in his "Accoupt of .London'.' (1790)'  says that "on the north side of Charing  Cross stood the royal mew's, where the  king's falcons had been kept; since the  time of Richard III."  "Mews'* is thought to be derived  from the French niuer, Latin nrutare,  to change or molt, and to have beeu  used of a cage for molting birds, as  muette isjised in France for a place in  which horns shed by stags in the forest are kept by officials of the chase.  As time went on horses were kept in  the inclosures used at first for hawks,  and the old name was retained.  In  this connection  we  may  quote  Dryden's line, ,  Nine  times   the  moon   hath  meW'cl   her  horns,  and Milton, who speaks of the e:ig!e  as "mewing its mighty youth"���������I.e..  fresher from Its molting, and Shakespeare, who adopts the secondary  meaning.

Drummers   Who Mao   un   Kxciting  Tim*  Quito  "VeJsr Wiiinipri;.  Only fourteen miles from Winnipeg  two commercial travelers had an exciting chase by a hungry pack of  Wolves a week or two ago. Tlie Winnipeg Tribune tells the story:  "A puck of timber wolves was noticed on  the road a short    distance  ahead of them.      These animals   invariably show theii* heels when   ap-.-  proachud, but on this occasion   they  gave ^promise of making a determined  stand,'  The travelers,     however,,  drove along apparently unmindful of'  them, and when within a few feet of  them the pack slunk sullenly    away  amongst  tho    drifts    of    snow  uud  poplar scrub.  "The occupants of the rig became  a littltj more easy at this juncturo,  believing that, as is customary,-the  animals would look for other prey.  But in this they were disappointed.  One of the occupants of the rig in  glancing around happened to notice  the outline of one of the gaunt animals us it leaped from one knoll to  another. This was.followed by tho  outlines of the others, until the  whole pack was discovered to bo  doggedly following the rig.  ��������� "The travelers were without - firearms of any kind, and then only did  the real danger of their position'  dawn upon them. Wolves become  much more dangerous and daring  wlii'ii they sec a prospective' prey retreating than when a stand is made.  /The men, too, did'not lose anytime  *in increasing the speed of their horse  and it rapidly resolved itself into a  "race between the travelers and th������  >wolves. The hungry animals sped over the ground at lightning rate, and,  ���������becoming more daring, took' to the'  road behind the fleeing rig. Fortunately the men were driving a good  piece of horseflesh, and just managed  to reach Stony Mountain ahead of  the animals. Hon they, entered ������f  breakneck pace, to the utter astonishment of one or two of th-*- villagers, who happened to be about nt  that early  hour  of  tho morning.  "Of course the wolves gave up the  hunt at this point, not daring to  follow-up the rig into-tho village.  The winter has been pbrticularly  hard .on there animals, mid has been  making them look for ford other  than- by the usual channels.

McClure  It bad been bad enough, said the  cowboys, to have Buena Vista county  turned into a rendezvous for invalids in  various stages of hay fever, bronchitis  and consumption. It was.an outrage  to have^pne's favorite barroom remodeled into a sanitarium, but it was heaping insult upon injury to have a twenty-five horsepower French racer flashing over roads���������and good roads, too���������  long sacred to the festive cow pony.  With Harvey Thatcher, owner of  said racer, the good roads surrounding  Fort Norton, the county seat of Buena  Vista county, had been the main attraction. When his physicians had or-  . dered Colorado air, Thatcher had stipulated that section of eastern Colorado where the roads would permit him  to break the already brilliant record of  the Comet. Arid eo it happened that  ' lie and his machine, his valet and his  chauffeur, were thorns in tlie flesh of  the cowboy element, even as the latter  had worried the respectable faction  among the early citizens of Fort Norton.  The cowboys had bare'-y become accustomed to the presence of the Comet  in their midst and had decided that it  might prove dangerous to shoot up a  gasoline engine when there arose fresh  cause for dissatisfaction. Nan Bearce  took to riding in the Comet. And.Nan  was the prettiest girl in Buena Vista  county, or a*J the adjoining counties,  for that matter. She had been the  toast of every camp on the range, the  belle at every ball, the queen of every  county fair tournament in which the  cowboys had fought for honors after  their own peculiar fashion. Her favors had been evenly distributed, and  her devotion had gone to her worthless father, who ran the one shoe shop  of which Fort Norton could boast. A  dilapidated, evil smelling den be kept  at the end of the street leading north  from the postoffice, but the three rooms  behind the shop were as fresh and  sweet as Nan's stout arms and sunshiny nature could keep them.  _-.���������;-There-were-menrdozeris"of'-tbemTin-  Buena Vista county who .would have  Nan Bearce, and there were mutter-  ings that boded ill for the owner of tbe  Comet. The only man who declined to,  discuss the situation was Ben Hetb  and that even after Nan and young  Thatcher had ridden out to his ranch  twice in the devil's wagon, as one, old  woman called it To be, sure, the,chauffeur was in attendance, but what was  a chauffeur perched up in the back  seat with Nan���������enticing, alluring Nan  ���������her soft, brown hair tossed by the  wind, her eyes dancing with the ex-  eitement of the run, urging the young  Xew Yorker on to higher speed?  ���������~>n-v>  thev  had  been  seen coming  of this soul Inspiring verse, and he sent  it to the object of bis adoration, with  a request that -she would express an  opinion on its merits.

Htm Dean Swift   i.uipod   ths Business of  ills   lilll-bl'T.  Ono of the insiitutions .of all civilized countries is the "barber. Formerly, when wigs were worn . and  beards were not, the barber had hia  hands full. Dean Swift was every  day shaved by a barber with whom  he was'on excellent terms.  When he was busy on hia famous  customer one. morning the barber  said he had a great favor to ask  his reverence, adding that at the  suggestion of his neighbors he had  taken a small public house at the  corner of the churchyard. He hoped,  with two businesses, that ho might  make a better living for his family.  "Indeed," said the Dean, "and  what can I do to promote the happy  union?"  "If it please you." said the barber,  "some* of our customers have heard  much about your reverence's poetry:  so that, if you would but condescend to give me a smart little touch  in that way. to clap under my sign,  it might be the making ol me and  mine forever."  "But what do you intend for your  blankets, which filled in the body of   S-Rn?" inquired the cleric.  the machine.

Men shook thoir bends  around tho stove at Gilbert's genera)  ���������tore, and tho news sprond out on tbe  rnngo. Thatcher was making a fool of  new roads and might be gone a week  or more.    The cowboys sent, him on.  bis way with a volley of shots.   They  were bent on more serious work.  The Comet shot along the country  road, through the soft twilight and the  limpid moonlight, straight across������the  state line into Nebraska. At precisely  the same, time the Overland limited  was carrying a white faced but determined girl over tlio sapie state line.  Thatcher insisted upon giving away  tbe bride aud receiving the first, kiss  after the ceremony. He snid it wns  due for excess baggage on the best run  the Comet had over made. Then the  great red machine, its owner, ills  chauffeur and his valet, rolled hack to  Fort Norton without the impressive ar-  ray of luggage, nnd Harvey Thatcher,  tenderfoot, from Now York, announced  thnt whon a certain bunch of unmitigated fools had finished their annual  spree and hnd recounted their blank-  oly blank calves the bride nnd groom  would come back to Fort Norton, nt  which time the damages claimed by  said groom for injury dono his property and his reputation would bo paid or  tho sheriff of Buena Vista county and  ono Harvey Thatcher, Esq., would  know tho renson why, whereupon snid  Harvey Thatcher prompt* rose in tho  estimation of tho cowboy element, and  his horseless vehicle was forgiven him,  hand and a full pot in the othor."

A pleasing tale runs  that a gentleman, walking along a  country lane, came suddenly upon a  village boy belaboring the crushed  body of a toad with a heavy stick aud  exclaiming at each blow, "I'll lam 'e  to be a toad!" whereat the indignant  newcomer, seizing the miscreant by  his collar, vigorously applied a cane  to his legs, remarking, '"I'll larn you  to be a boy!" The popular hatred of  the toad, indeed, is of such antiquity  and is still so general as to seem ineradicable. That the creature is not  dangerously poisonous It is hopeless  to attempt to convince the ordinary  rustic. Doubtless this belief has its  origin in the acrid secretion which the  toad has the power of emitting when  disturbed or annoyed unduly and  which will cause a dog that has incautiously picked up a toad to foam  at the mouth. Again, the uncouth appearance of the creature has had much  to do with the. feeling of repulsion  with which it has always been regarded. "Squat like a toad" is the phrase  by which Milton describes the evil one  essaying to reach the ear of Eve.  Superstition, in truth, has laid a firm  hold on the toad's misshapen figure.  The belief, not only in the existence of  "toad stones," but in their efllcacy ns  a sovereign remedy for certain ills,  which is still common in parts of the  country, is of very ancient date.  "There is to be found in the heads of  old and great" toads," says Fenton,  writing in 1569, "a stone they call  borax, or stelon, which, being used as  1 rings, gives forewarning of venom."  In tbe Londesborougb collection is a  silver ring of the fifteenth century in  which one of these toad stones is set.  They were supposed always to bear  on their surface a figure resembling a  toad, being somewhat similar trinkets,  one may imagine, to tlie scaraliasus  ornament of the Egyptians. Another  early writer remarks, "A toad- stone  called"'erepandiai~tbuching~any"part  envenomed by the bite of rat, wasp,  spider or other venomous beast, ceases  the pain and swelling thereof." It  was believed that when brought near  to poison the stone sweated and changed color, thus conveying to its wearers a timely warning of danger.  It is to these peculiar amuletd thnt  Shakespeare is supposed to refer in  j "As You Like It:"  ! Sweet aro tho uses of adversity,  i Which, like tho toad, ugly nnd venomous,  Wears yet a precious jewel in his heau.     \  Is it not probable, however, that tho '  poot, being a poet, is hero alluding to  tho eye of tho toad, an object, ns all  who are ronlly familiar with the np- .  ponruneo of this humble ImtracLiiau  will ngroo, than which thoro are few .  more beautiful in nature? 1  Perhaps tho most fnmilinr superstition in .regard to toads is that, still rife,  which supposes them capable of existing for nn indefinite period In tho Into- |  rior of rocks, stones or hermetically)  sealed cavities.   Numberless "authtm-!  tic Instances" of this remarkable power have boon brought forward from  tlmo to time.    Tho following example from nn old book is typical: "In  171)3 Mr. George Wilson, a mason, met  with a tond, which ho wantonly im- ���������  -mured In a stone wall thnt ho was  then building,    In the mlddlo of tho ,  wall ho made a close cell of Hmo nnd  stono, just fit for tho magnitude of its ,  body nnd seemingly so plastered as to  prevent tho admission of nlr.   In ISOl',  sixteen years afterward, it wns found  necessary to open a gap In this wall  for n passage of carts, when the poor  .creature was found alive In Its strong-  hold.   It soomed at llrst In a vory torpid stnte, but It soon recovered animation nnd activity nnd, as If sensible of  tho blessings of freedom, made Its way  to a collection of stones nnd disappeared."   It Is known Unit toads can exist  ! for a long time without food, and It Is  generally believed that they livo to a  ! great age, and doubtless theso two pe-  eulIarliioH havo had much to do with  tho super-dlllon In regard to thoir sup-  posed penchant for n hermit's llfo, Tho  fallacy, however, was completely ex-  poM'd  by  Dean  Bucklnud,  father of  I Frank Lssoklnnd, the great naiimiiK  j who went to the trouble of test Ing the  j trull* of the theory by an oxhau-'ilre  I fioi'toq nf ni'nnvt'i*.'*'"*"      Tf *i<.-wi < n',- !,���������������  I romnrkod thnt none of !d<* vlHlni" >*ur-  j vlvod tho Ineareernllon.

The scheme, which had  been announced two years before,  shows that tho lottery consisted of  forty thousand lots or shares at ten  shillings each, and that it comprehended "a treat number of -rood  prizes, as well as of ready money  as of plate, and certain sorts of  merchandise." The object of any,  profit that might arise' from thu  scheme was the reparation of har������  bors and other useful public works.  Lotteries did    not take their ori*'  gin in England; they wore known ia  Italy at an earlier date; but    from  the year mentioned down   to    182Q  (excepting  for a short  time follow-  ine- upon -   an act of    Queen    Anne,)  they continued to be adopted by th������  'English Government as a    source ot  revenue.    It  is difficult    to     realiza'  that  there   were  large  and  imposing  offices    in   ..London, and pretentious'  agencies in the provinces,    for    tha  sale of lottery tickets;    while darning advertisement's on walls, in new  books - and    in the    public journals  proclaimed   the desirability  of   such  and such "lucky" offices.  What Anxnyrd  I'hll May.  In    an article    on the    late    Phil  May .and his work it ia    stated    bv  one   who   obviously  knew him  ��������� well  that he was of such a kindly nature  that he was unable to say "No" for  fear of e-ivine* pain.     "He was dona  to death by a shoal of   hanerers-on,'  who sent him to his era've before ha  was.  forty broken    in    health    and   .  empty in pocket. More than one even   .,  forged his name to bills, trusting to  his  good nature  not. to    prosecute, .  and  they were right in  their calcu-1  lations.'     On one occasion    he was  shown such a bill. and, strange    to,  'sayr"l^sli^wel:l^e^"oliTm~ent.  'T'ej an-  novecl���������I'm really very  much annov-  ed;' he said quietly, as he stared   at'i  the signature: 'it's so badly done!'

"She was the cleverest  woman I ever knew," and he    often  reluted  tho  advice   she    gave    him  when as a boy he thought   of being  called to thc bar.   "If ever vou were  to become    Lord    Chuncellor."    sho  said,  "you would have reached    iho  end of all things in that profession./  You would have such and    such   an'  income and    such and such a    position,   which  aro  already  known     to  you.      13ut if vou go into    huaincss'.  there is no limit to vour opportunities."      Tlio boy chose his    father's  business and. as he often said, novofi  forgot his mother's advica, '  :iin Mii'Iv-ii- Hny Wlliliirne-,*.  Alfred E.

"It Is but  the delusion of her poor warped  brain; Some people might think  that I have done wrong in flying  from him, in not, on the contrary,  seeking him out, and forcing him to  marry her.

If  not, if she M'ero ever to see him  again, I am quite sure, in the state  of health in 'which she is, that the-  j-h'oc'k Would either kill her, or drive  her to raving madness. She was  mad once, many years ago���������at the  nme. After it had all happened she  was completely insane for three  months. It is best perhaps to tell  you this. Shall you be afraid to  stay with us, Freda?"  Poor Miss Barbara, her trial was  indeed a sore one! I kissed and comforted her, and told her I would  never leave her as long as vshe and  Kllihor required my services.  The stern-featured but soft-hearted'  woman wiped away a few tears, and  bade 'God bless me, ere she wished  me good-night.  CHAPTER XXIV.  We had a very severe winter at  Kaneton Scars that year; a long,  hard, dry frost, and then a heavy  fall of snow, that lay for weeks upon the face of the earth like a great  soft white winding-sheet.  Ellinor had completely recovered  from her attack of illness, and there  had been,no repetition of it, neither  had she Spoken again about' her supposed marriage. She had also either forgotten to show me her ' wedding-ring, or else had changed her  mind;"about" doing    so���������at any rate  cer-  she had never alludedto-it "again-  The only reference she had made to  her past was one day when I had  como suddenly into the drawing-  room, and called her by her name.  "Oh! here you are, Ellinor!" I had  Bald, for I had been looking for her  in her own bedroom.  "Ah!" she said dreamily, "it is always Ellinor now. Once, a long  timo ago, somebody called me Nell,  his ,, little Nell! Don't you think  Nell is a much prettier name than  Ellinor. Freda?"  "No, dear, I think Ellinor is a  beautiful old English name," I answered, lightly.  She sighed, and did not answer  me. That was her "nearest approach  to tho dangerous subject which it  was my duty to her sister to prevent her as much as possible from  dwelling upon. !  One morning, when the snow had .  been upon the ground for nearly ten  days, ono of the maids camo in and  told Miss Barbara that Thompson,  the gardener, tho only��������� malo being  about the promises, desired to speak  to her at onco,  Miss Barbara went out of tho  room. Ellinor and I roso from tho  broalcfast-tablo, and went into tho  drawing-room. There, standing idly  at a window that looked to the side  of tho house, watching tho robins  pocking up tho crumbs wo had  thrown out to them, I was surprised  to soo Miss Barbara, In thick clogs,  and with a shawl thrown hastily over her head, plodding her way by  thc side nf Thompson through the  thick snow, .  To my ustonlFhmont, thoy pushed  through f-nn'-*��������� laurel bushes in Iho  shrubbery, heavy with snow, and  which .scatter' d a whlto f-hower over  Wins Barbara's back as who stooped  under them aid disappeared, Presently they both ronppoarod throtieh  tho Kiinio narrow opening, and pnsi-i-  ed down ihe swept path, on llie  drive, out 1hrouf.',h tho front gate,  wherci they must have remained puf-  Kldn the walls for nearly (.��������� n minutes,  .lust then ' "Klll-nor called tne lo  come unci five'"my opinion upon ihe  condu t of Samuel,  in putting     Iho  ���������info'VI'milte   A-ril,������   tO   dentil,   i'f'/T   bo  bad,'fhi'Ught'ihut "tho bitternew of  dont.h  w.ifi  int.''

'.*"'  This    quaint    dba-ssion,    arming  from the story of Ag������g, had so dl-  vwfod my thought! from Miss Dur  ham, and her unprecedented expedition across the snow, that I had!  forgotten all about it, until a few j  minutes later, happening to cross,  the hall, I met' her coming in at the ,  front door, with a face as white^as  the snow behind her.  "Come in here, Freda," she said  in a ��������� queer j choked voice. "I want j  fo speak to you." She drew me into her little sanctum, half boudoir  and half study, where she transacted  all, her daily business, and locked the j  door.  "What is the matter?" I asked in j  surprise, as I helped to divest her of ;  her wet shawl and overshoes.  . She   looked not  white,  but  ashen  gray,  frightened  as  if she had seen  a ghost,  and she trembled in   every  limb.  There was a medicine chest In the  corner V of the room. I ran to it,  and poured her out some sal volatile, which I made her swallow,  "For heaven's sake what is; it���������  what has happened?" I asked,  alarmed in my turn at the sight of  her evident agitation. ,  "You saw that Thompson came to  speak to me?" she said, as soon as  she, was sufficiently recovered.,to be  able to speak. "Well, it appears  that he discovered' quite early this  morning that there were footprints  in the snow, fresh footprints coming  from under the shrubbery bushes,  against the wall straight up to the  house. I have just been out to see  for myself, and they go from the conservatory, right up to "the wall; then  I went outside the wall, and there  are the footprints again, coming  from a long way off, across the  snow; and stopping short at our  wall, exactly corresponding to the  place within the walls where they  reappear. The bushes grow rather  close to the wall. I have ordered  -Thompson���������to-cut���������them���������down���������this-  morning. Freda, a man got over the  wall last night, and came up to the.  house!"  I was rather surprised that Miss  Barbara, who was, as I had always  imagined her to be, a strong-minded  little woman, should be so terribly  upset and frightened by the alarm-  common enough, I have no doubt, in  lonely neighborhoods���������of a thief wandering round the house in the night.  "Oh! don't be frightened, Miss  Barbara," I said, reassuringly. "The  thief, whoever he is, did not get in.  You know how strong this old house  is, how thick the walls are, aiid how  well barred-up and shuttered are nil  tho windows, -No one could get In,  I. believe, and nothing has been stolon, J.f you J'eol nervous let us send  to.tho police station at Kaneton, and  ask them to send us out a couple of  men for a few days to protect us.  But no doubt since the bm-glar was  unable to affect an entrance, he will  not. trouble us with another visit,"  Miss Barbara continued to rock  herself backwards and forwards in  her cliair, in an uncontrollable distress of mind. v  "Oh! my dear," she said, with a  sort of groan, "you don't understand, It is no burglar���������oh! how I  wish it wero!-���������that I could .bollovo  it for a moment. Do you suppose a  whole gang of thieves would frighten  me in this way? But it ia not a  thief,"  "Not a thief?" I echoed in surprise, "Why what elso could it bo,  Mihs Barbara? No honest person  would como climbing over people's  walls, and wandering round their  liouso at dead of night. Who elso  could It be but a thief?"  "Oli! my dear girl���������my story is  only hull' told. Look horo at what I  have found."  She held out hor hand, which sho  had kept chisi-'d upon her knees, and  "���������bowed mo what alio had hitherto  concealed from mo,  It wns a small bright object. I  tool; it from her and examined It,  nnd found Una it, was tho broken  hall' of n solid mid rather handsome  gold sleeve-link.

To all appearance, Elizabeth���������that  in tracing her 1 Was ^er name���������did her duties quietly, and was likely to retain V her  place. I did not, of course, take any  particular notice of her.  It was about this time, however,  that something unusual in the girl's  manner suddenly arrested my attention. She flushed up quickly if any  one spoke to her, and started if one  came across her unexpectedly about  the house. And once I met her in  the dusk going along- the passage  outside my bedroom, carrying something in her hands over which she  hastily flung her apron as I approached. Tho house, as I have  Baid before, was old and rambling,  and many of the rooms were uninhabited and unfurnished. Tho two  sisters slept in adjoining rooms, with  Ellinor's maid beyond them at one  side oi tho house, and my bedroom  "i   am    certain of   it���������quite  tain," she kept on repeating.  "Buti dear   Miss    Barbara,    what  motive could he have  out?"  "What motive? Why, to regain possession of her, of course."    ,  "But is it likely," 1 argued, "that  after all these years he should suddenly endeavor to find hor, now that  her first youth is    past���������that illness  "What can you mean, Miss Clifford?" she interrupted, angrily. "My  sister's beauty is. as great as it ever  was. I have never met any woman  so lovely as she is!"  ��������� To her sister poor Ellinor, in . all  her faded, woe-begbne pallor, was as  faultlessly lovely at eight-and-twenty  as at" eighteen. I could not help being touched by the? devotion which  could see 119 flaw in its idol.  "Yes, that is true," I said, humbly,  feeling  sorry  that I had  unwittingly offended   her on so tender    a : was Quit������ at the opposite extremity,  ���������subject; "but still you havo describ-, There was a door at tho   end of the  ed him as such a heartless villain." j passage whpre I slept, which led into  "Ah! he may have heard that she  has come into a little money lately.

If that miserable 1  man has heard of this,-'' it would  perfectly account for his being anxious to claim -the poor child, he will  pretend that he married her, so that  he may get hold of the money she  has come into now."  Further arguments were wasted upon her. Miss Barbara stuck to her  own opinion persistently, and, refused to listen to any of my fai* more  reasonable theories  a room used as a lumber-room,  which had been in old days a passage into the chapel now ruined, and  there was still a. door at the'further  end, outside which were the broken  Btono steps, down which one might  scramble, if so disposed, on to the  floor of the now grass-grown chapel.  In this room were kept old furniture  and boxes, and no doubt a miscellaneous collection of rubbish of all  kinds. When I had arrived at ICane-  ton Scars, my box, after it had been  unpacked, was taken in there.

I j'  could see that she was still watchful, j  for every night she went round    the  premises and inspected the fastening  of every door and window    in    the j  house herself; but as days    went  by '  and nothing further happened,    and  no fresh    alarm by night    or    day,  occurred,    she gradually relaxed    in  hor vigilance, and her   extraordinary  fears appeared to be quieted.  As for myself I had always regarded her terrors as the wildest and  most unlikely fancies of her own  imagination, so that I very soon dismissed the whole incident of tho  thief and his mysterious footprints  entirely from my mind,   ,  Things woro in this condition at  Kaneton Scars when an incident  suddenly happened to myself so extraordinary and so unaccountable  that,, although I carefully kept, it to  myself, judging it worse than useless  to alarm Miss Barbara by imparting  to her my discovery, it had tho effect of making me take a far more  serious view of tho appearance of  thoso'strange footprints than I hnd  hitliQi'to done,  Jt happened that one day as I was  thinking of going up to my room in  the usual way, up the wide1 oaken  staircase which led from the entrance hall, I found my progress barred by a carpenter, who had bpen  sent,for to repair one of tho stops  which had got broken, 1 found tho  man, tool-basket and all, knoeling  across tho stairs, hammering away  with all his might, with his back  turned towards mo. Sooner than dls- |  lurb him I ran down again, along a  passago at tho bottom of the houso  to a small spiral back staircase seldom used, and which lod from tho  conservatory door up to tho landing,  whoro my Uodroom was situated.  Hunning lightly up the stairs, which  were but dimly UghUcI, I caught  night of a small glittering object irt  tlio corner ot one at tho steps, I  pinked it tip, and carried it to tho  UgJit.  It was a broken gold sloovo-link!  With a strange terror at my heart,  I rushed into Wis*- Barbara's room,  tore open tha il rawer of her writing-  table, anil nought for tho Half of  the eiihi link sho had idiowcd 1119  the Morning of tho dlscovory of tho  foot-prints. 1 fitted them to each  olher, They corresponded exactly,  The man', then, who had dropped  the' liim half of bin sleeve-link    near  llv.   ���������.���������-.It   mil'-Mo     lifirl      rlrn'iiw.rl      1\ici  Heromi half Inside ihe house I  CHAl'TEll XXV.

Curiosity induced mo   to  go again to the lumber-room   door.  It was locked.  It was evident that Elizabeth    had  the key in her own possession,    and.  had gone in and found my strap, arid I  had j-elocked the door after taking it j  outT   "     "        "'  I said nothing to anybody about  this any more than I had done about  that broken sleeve-link ' which I had  found a few days ago; but it was  evident to me that something unusual had occurred, or was going on  still in the house, and that Elizabeth was cognizant of it.  It came into my mind that she  might be one of a regular organized  gang of thieves, of whom tho thief  who had got over tho wall during  tho snow-fall was one, and that possibly she was daily stealing our property little by little, and storing it  up In the empty lumber-room. Everything seemed to point to this  theory being a correct one, excepting in ono all-important particular.  I could not discover that anything  of any kind had been lost by one  inmate of tho house.  I determined not to,' frighten Miss  Barbara by revealing any of my discoveries or my" alarms, but carefully  to watch things for myself, ������������������'  For a fow days all went on quietly. I could notice nothing unusual  in any respect. Tho door of the  lumber-room remained locked, and  Elizabeth went about tho house as  usual.  Ono night, however, I remained up  vory lato in Miss Barbara's bod-room  talking over many things���������over Elli-  nor's story and hor gonoral health;  and I had been tolling her something too���������not much, for I am not  given to making confidences���������of my  own history.  Tho servants had all gone to bod,  ond no one was stirring as I wont  Up to my room, Suddenly I noticed  that the door of tho 4umber-room  was ajar!  I am not physically vory bravo a*������  a rule, but Town that my curiosity  on this occasion qtilto got the better  of my fears. J. felt convinced that I  should Iind Elizabeth inside, disposing of hor stolon goods, I should  catch har in hoc own traol  Shading my candlo with my hand  I crept cautiously to tho door, pushed It Boftly open���������not without u  beating heart���������,and looked In.  Tho room was abHolutoly empty.  There was a pile of boxes nnd lumber at one end, and one largo trunk  was pulled out from tho iv.*������t, and  covorod ovor with an old horsecloth; an empty tumbler and a plate  containing somo fragments of food,  and fuiiw cutlet bones���������l swifily recollected that wo'had cutlets for dinner in tne uiutng-i'oum���������bi,uuu uu .i.e  whilst making these observation*,  nnd now noticed suddenly that tIndoor at tho further ond, which lad  out only on tho broken stttps In Ihe  rutin (1     nh^pM    irii������   n1������o   unfiist erted  and was swinging gontly backwards  and forwards with the wind���������of  courso it was tho draught from this  outer door which had blown open tho  inner door into tho houso.  It struck mo suddenly that Elira-  bflth wns no bur-jlnr In disguise, but  that sho simply pilfured tho good  things thnt r������m������������ out of the dlninj?-  ryoio and broiiftht them up hero to  ������nt them at her leisure. With this  now theory on tho subject I retreated to my own room, carefully closing all tho open doors, and by somt  instinct ot self preservation, born of  nervousness, locking my own bedroom door upon myself for further  security.  The next morning when Miss Barbara came out of the kitchen, after  ordering dinner, she called me into*  her sanctum, with a face full of annoyance.  "All the servants are in a commotion," she said. I am so angry  with them all, I have no patience  with them! The cook declares sho  saw a ghost last night, and is sitting in hysterics in the kitchen,"  "A ghost! What Bort of a>  ghost?"  "I am sure I don't know; they  were all talking at once, and all declaring they would none of them goto bed to-night. I told cook I would  throw a pail of cold water over her  if she did not leave off screaming,  and that threat did stop her hysterics!" added Miss Barbara, grimly.  "She must have dreamt it," 1  Baid, musingly; "of course it is ail  nonsense."  "Of course; but as soon as she-  could speak she declared solemnly  'upon her Bible oath,' she said,  that she; was wide awake, and heard  footsteps going along the passage-  that sho thought Miss Ellinor might)  be ill'., and something be wanted, so  she got out of bed and lit her candlu  and opened the door, and thero sho  saw a tall figure, wrapped in a long  dark cloak disappearing at the further end of the passage, that would  be toward your room, Freda!"  Miss Barbara laughed as she said  this, but she looked very much annoyed.  ,, "There they all stood, tho idiots!  round her, with their teeth chattering as if? they would tumble out of  their silly heads, shuddering like tt  parcel of geese!"  "And what did Elizabeth say?" I  asked.  "Elizabeth?���������Oh! by-the-way, she  was the only ono who 'showcdi any  sense at all. Sho laughed at the"  whole thing, and told the cook she  had been dreaming of her sweetheart. I think sho seems a sensible  girl, that Elizabeth."  I was silent for a minute pondering over many things.  ,1 was trying to put two and two  together in my mind, but found tho  task a harder one than that mathematical." puzzle is generally supposed  to be.  "Of courso it is all rubbish!" continued Miss Barbara, impatiently  and irritably. "And if they don't  like to sleep in my house,' I am sure  they are quite welcome^to go "buC of"  it. But what worries me is, that I  am so dreadfully afraid that Ellinor  will hear of it, and, with her state  of nerves, I am in constant dread of  her being upset, or frightened in  any way. You must watch her  carefully to-day, Freda, and see  that she does not overhear any of  this silly chatter."  "I wi'l do so, Miss Barbara," I  answered: "But would you mind, before I go to her, sending for Elizabeth here?"  "For Elizabeth! what for?" sho  asked, in surprise.  "Well, as you say sho was less  foolish than tho others, she might  bo nblo to tell us quietly what she  thinks of it all."  "I don't see how she is likely (o  know anything more about it than  what she said in the kitchen. Sho  did not see the so-called ghost.  Ghosts, indo'd! f wonder how any  pensl', le grown-up woman can believe in such rubbish!

If they were good they are  praising their Maker in heaven; and  if thoy were wicked, why you may  depend upon It thoy hnvo enough on  their hands to keep them quiet soino-  whoro," added Miss Barbara, grimly.  [ laughed at hor quaint theology,  but persisted In my request.  'Tleaso send for Elizabeth, -Miss  Barbara.
