LADYSMITH  AERIE  686,  "Jessamine, coin* in at once!" Mrs.  Brookmere called acidly from the west  porch. As her granddaughter rose  obediently, but with u little-impatient  sigh, her companion, Austin Wills,  whistled softly, then said:  "Jessamine!     What  a  wax Madam  Brookmere must be in! You're always  Sunbeam mid Fairy aud Bright Eyes  when she's iu a good humor."  "That is to say when the Beveridge  thiug is around," Jessamine'said, with  a shrug. "She is iu a wax���������she always  is when you come���������and she feels iu  her bones when you are coming."  "H-m-m! I ought to be flattered, but  I'm not the least bit," Austin answered, also rising aud catching Jessamine's hand. She looked aghast, but  he kept sturdily ut her side until they  were facing Jessamine's dragon. Then  he said, with his best flourish: "Oh,  Madam Brookmere, I have brought  this young person to tell you why k1i������  can't possibly come lu. She Is to go  rowing with ��������� me. We will be back by  late tea time. The afteruc-on Is too  heavenly to be wasted ou laud."  "Jessamine, go upstairs aud fetch  my embroidery. Be sure you don't forget my glasses," madam said, as  though the young man had not spoken. Jessamine made to obey, but Wills  held lier hack, lie lifted bis hat' to  the elder lady, turned aud walked off,  saying over his shoulder: "Send the  maid up, madam. It's bad luck to turn  hack. 1 can't allow Miss Jessamin*  to risk spoiling our cruise."  "Oh, what will she do to me?" Jessamine cried as they hurried away.  '-Madam had been too paralyzed by  Wills' audacity to say a word. ' Austin  drew Jessamine's baud farther over  his arm and smiled down at ber, Baying:-"I hope It will be 'Out of my  house, ingrate!' Then, you see, you  will Lave to come to my bouse whether or no."  "Mercy, you do take a lot on yourself!" .Tessa mine said, pulling away her  hand, her eyes dancing wickedly. "I  begin to fear, Mr, Wills, that J'OU have  taken our little affair seriously"���������' -  "Isn't it to be taken seriously? Really you lift a weight off my conscience,"  Wills interrupted in herown tone; then,  after a chuckle: "Jess, I must lecture ' .. ������������������< ���������  yen���������point out the sinful folly of your   ���������  ���������      '  The j*tlu.viii>   Gun.  ��������� Sir Hiram Maxim is said to have  j first thought of the "Maxim gnu ,by re-  iceiving a jar on the shoulder. at tha  i firing of an old rifle,    it seemed a pity  ��������� that the kick should be wasted.

I can't have another case of Narcissus and his linage  upon my. conscience.'?  "Really! Have you.'a conscience'?������  Jessamine retorted.

You can do it, .never.  fear. lie's lininan. if beds a preacher,  nnd no mere man 'yet born of woniaii  is able to stand against you"���������  ''Thank, you ��������� again," Jessamine said,  tossing her head. "Oh, I want that  clump of cardinal flower," leaning aa  slier-spoke toward the shelving shore.  Wills sliook his liead. "Snakes!" he  said laconically, speaking very loud;  then, in a low aside: "Here's where we  (inhrrel, Jess. Insist upon getting* out.  The bishop to be is coming down tha  path."  "Ob, Mr, Beveridge," Jessamine called eagerly, "do come and pick som������  flowers for me.   I want to pick them  with a"wither!ng glance at Wills.  Beveridge ran down to the water's  edge. "Won't you let ine rescue you?"  he cried, holding out his hand: '-'Jump!'  1 promise you shall get nothing worse  than a pair of wet feet by it."  ."She needn't have even tbenl,": Wills  said boorishly., "If you'll agree to see  her to the bouse I'll be glad enough to  put her ashore. Not in tlie humor for  walking myself -and still less for botanizing."'  Half an hour .later" Mrs. Brookmere  was surprised, audi' if truth must be  spoken, not wholly pleased to see Jessamine sauntering home, her hands full  of scarlet bloom; "with the Rev. Bewly  Beveridge at her elbow. Now the minister had been madam's own compau-  ion. all through the earlier afternoon,  and, though he had not said much���������'  finite too little to make madam aware  of her own state of mind���������he had looked unutterably things. She had found  the looking pleasant���������she was of tin*  women made to be married, childless.  although she had buried three, husbands, and still possessed of an alert  and lively vanity. She liked to see her  name at the bead of lists of patronesses, especially missionary and rescue  bands. Further, flattery was meat uev  soul loved to feed on: The Rev. Bewly  had found that out at about the second  minute nnd acted upon the 'knowledge.  Indeed, his mind was pretty well mado  up to in^'y her before the interview  ended, i.ut then b������ had not seen Jes-,  saniine in this mood. Jessamiue upset  liis calculations; she fairly swept him  olf bis feet. " ,  Madam was sadly 'puzzled throughout the next week.   Wills haunted the  bouse as much as over, though Jessamine openly .flouted'hlin, at the same  time  smiling  shy  propitiation  at 'the  bishop to be.   Me also was in a maze.  Jessamine's   encouragement   was   too  elusive to wan an t giving over his pursuit of madam, yet sufficiently unsettling to  make him  at times distrait.  Wills .-glared at him and ostentatiously  ignored him.    It was thnt which"gave  . hiui the strongest hope.    Wills must  be   jealous���������madly   jealous.     If   only  Beveridge bad never  begun  to court  that old woman!    She was in the beginning eager 'to play fairy godmother.  It was 'sickening to feci that he had  disturbed this pious purpose,  making  the lady fool that she was not too old  to inspire grand passion number four.  Presently be began to see light.    He  would.have it out "with Jessamine���������ask  ber plnniply to be Mrs. Beveridge, and,  if she said "yes,"* go to madam for her  blessing, along with" an apocryphal talo  of a distant wooer ready to sue for her  baud.    lie could  make It appear  he  bad beeii finding out her mind toward  a fourth marriage.    It would go. hard  wifli   him,   but   that   somewhere   he  would find a man to make good.    Indeed, providentially  be already knew'  the nian-r.a college president, poor and  pious, entitled .to write half the alphabet after bis name in honorary distinctions, with children all safely married,  and much in want of a good home.   So  lie went straight to Jessamine, begging  ber to -sing to him.    The music room  was at the very end of the house, thus  well  apart.    There was small chance  of interruption.   All the rest were busy  with games or flirting or walking in  the dower garden under a white moon.  Jessamine  went  with  him,   walking  high headed and joyous.   At the door  of the parlors she waved him forward,  running  back  herself  upon  some  errand  be did  not  understand.    Whatever it was,  she  did  it very  quickly.  He   bad   hardly   found   the   songs   be  wanted when she was beside him, sm.il-.  ing  at   him   in  the   most  bewildering  fashion.   As khe reached for tbe music  her hand,  apparently  by   chance,   fell  lightly upon his.    He tried to bold It,  but. she snatched it away, turned from  him and began to sing very softly.   He  watched  her   with   burning   eyes,   his  breath coming hard and'fast.    As she  made   to  rise   he put his  arms  about  her and gathered bur to bis breast, saying hoarsely: "Jessamine, darling,won't  you make music for mo always?    Unless you do my life will bo wasted."  "You��������� you are not i:i earnest!" Jessamine said, slipping from his amis and  averting her face. "You, who are so  great, so wise, so good, need another  sort of wife���������somebody who can help  you.    I���������I should be only a burden."  "A blessed burden, one I shall rejoice to carry," Beveridge-said, trying  to take her hand. She drew away from  him, saying ns though in despair: "You  ���������you are playing with me. You really  want grandmother"���������  "Grandmother! Ob, you jealous  darling! How dare you name anything so preposterous?-' Beveridge said,  catching both her bands. "Grandmother is the most estimable of old  ladies, but even if I knew she would  take ine I could not think of marrying  ber���������not for all tbe money' in tlie  world."  "Jl-m-m! You've been frying to do  It for a very moderate part ofn ihe  money," grandmother said, stepping  through the French window upon Austin Wills' arm. After one look at hc*r  the Rev. Bewly Beveridge stepped out  through the same window. He knew  tbe treasures of Brookmere were wholly lost to blin, no matter bow tbejr -wer������  reekoneA      "������������������ ��������� <   ...,-.    ���������,������������������../.���������    i  Summer Sa  OF  Blouse & White wear -Goods  NOW TAKING PLACE  All' Prices Marked in Plain  i^r^m^-y-Figures' ���������" /  SIMON LEISER & GO Ltd.
