Here they are."    He took from me the  last sheet of doggerel verse,and drew  from his pocket two more.

Take that,  sirrah, and that!"    They were laid on  with  a   will.    The. poet  groaned,   but  made no reply, again looking vainly to  right and left for some way of escape.  Tut* hasting which followed was real  ly  worthy of-the days  when Capt'ih.  Crowle with'bis own hand quelled a  mutiny and drove the whole crew un-  . der hatches.  It was a-poor, .shrinking, trembling'  figure full of bruises and  aches and,  pains that presently arose and slunk  away.     I  should   have   felt  sorry for  him had he taken punishment like a  man.   Why, I would maroon any of my  crew who would cry. and grovel aiid  snivel when tied up for his three dozen.  It made one sick and ashamed to sen  liim and to hear him, with his "Mercy,  captain!     Oh,   enough,   good' captain!  Oh, captain, I confess!   I deserve it all.  Never again, captain.   Oh, forgiveness,  forgiveness!" and so on.   I say it mado  , me sick and ashamed.    When all was  over,   I   followed   him   to   the  garden  irate.    "Oh,   Jack,"  he groaned,  "you  stood by and saw It all!    I am a dead  man.   He shall be liknged for It    You.  are the witness. , I am nothing but a  bag of, broken bones, ribs'and collar  ' bones and skull.   I am a poor, unfortunate,  murdered  man.    I  am  done to  death with a cudgel."  . "Go  home,"  I  said.    "You  a man 7  You cry like a whipped cur.    Murdered?   Not you.    Cudgeled you are, and  well 'you deserved  it. . Go home and  get brown paper and vinegar and tell  all the town how you have been cudgeled for writing verses to a matchless  maid.    They will laugh, 'Sam Semple.  They will laugh."  The'captain went back to the parlor  somewhat flushed with the exercise.-  "Justice," he said, "lias been done  without'the cart and the cat. My pipe,  Jennifer, and the home brewed. Molly, my dear, your very good health."  A day or two, afterward we heard  that Sam Semple had gone to London  to' make his fortune. lie was carried  thither, by the wagon that once a week  makes the journey to London, returning the following week. But when  Sam Semple came back It was in a  chaise, with much splendor, as in due  course you shall tiear. You shall also  hear of the singular gratitude, with  which he repaid tl- captain for that  wholesome correctiSi.  CHAPTER n.  A iSOBLE LORD.  T is three years later.  We are now lu the year  1750. At 12 o'clock in  the morning the anteroom of the townbouse  of the right honorable  the Earl of Fylingdale  was tolerably filled  with a mixed company attending his  levee.  Soon after 12 o'clock the doors of the  private apartments were thrown open,  and his lordship appeared wearing the  look of dignity and proud condescension combined which well became the  star he wore and the ancient title  which he had Inherited. Ills age was  about 30, a time of life when there linger Borne remains of youth and the serious responsibilities are yet with some  men hardly felt. His face was cold  and proud and hard, the lips firmly set,  the eyes keen and even piercing, the  features regular, his stature tall, but  not ungainly; his figure manly. It was  remarkable among those who knew  Mm Intimately that there was as j'et  no sign of luxurious living on face and  figure. He was not as yet swelled out  , with wine and punch; his neck was  still slender, his face pale, without any  telltale marks of wine and debauchery.  So far as appearance goes, he might  pass If he chose for a person of the  most rigid and even austere virtue.  This, as I have said, was considered  remarkable   by   his   friends,   most   of  whom were already stamped on face  and feature and figure with the outward and visible tokens of a profligate  life,  for.   to confess  tbe truth at the  very beginning and not to attempt concealment or to suffer a false belief aa  regards this nobleman, he was nothing  better than a cold blooded, pitiless, selfish libertine, a rake ancl a voluptuary,  one  who  knew  and  obeyed   no  laws  save   the   laws   of   (so  called)   honor.  These laws allow, a man to waste his  fortune at the gaming table,   to ,ruin  confiding girls, to spend his time with  rake   companions   in   drink   and   riot  and debauchery of all kinds.  He must,  however, pay  his gambling debts; he  must not cheat at cards; he must be  polite in speech; he must be ready to  fight whenever the occasion calls for  his sword aud the quarrel seems of sufficient   importance.    Lord   Fylingdale,  however,   was  not among  those who  found his chief pleasure scouring the  streets  and   In .mad   riot.    You   shall  learn   In  due  course   what   forms   of  pleasure chiefly attracted him.  1 have said that his face was proud.  There was not. I believe, anv man liv  ing in the whole world who could compare with   Lord   Fylingdale  for pride.  An overwhelming pride sat  upon  his  brow, was proclaimed by bis eyes and  was betrayed   by   his, carriage.    With  such pride did Lucifer look round upon  his, companions,   fallen   as  they   were  aud hi the depths of hopeless ruin.  '    He was dressed in a manner becoming to his rank.   Need we dwell upon  his coat of purple velvet, his embroidered  waistcoat,   his   white silk  stockings, his lace of'nifiles and cravat; his  gold buckles and  his gold clocks, ,his  laced hat carried  under his arm,, his  jeweled sword hilt and the rings upon  his fingers?    You  would think by his  dress that his wealth was equal to his  pride, and by his reception of the suitors "that his powpr was equal to both  pride and wealth together.  Tho levee began. One after, the other  stepped up to him, spoke a few words,  received a few words In, reply and retired,   each   apparently -well   pleased,  for promises cost nothing,   To the poet  who asked for a subscription and proffered a dedication  my   lord  promised  the   former,  accepted   the  latter  and  added a few words of praise aud good  wishes.   But the subscription was nev-  or paid, and the dedication was afterward altered so-far as the superscrip  tion to another noble patron.   To'the  clergyman   who  asked   for a country  living then  vacant my lord promised  .the most kindly'Consideration and bade  him write his request and send'it him  by letter for better assurance of1 remembrance. To the officer lie promised  his company as only due to gallantry  and military skill.  rJ��o the place, hunter  he   promised, a  post  far   beyond' the  dreams nnd the hopes of the suppliant.  Nothing more came of it to either.  The company grew thin. One after  the other the suitors withdrew to feed  on'promises. It Is like opening your  mouth to' drink the wind. But 'twas  all they got. - ,  When they were gone, Lord Pyling-.  dale looked round tho room.    In the  window stood, dangling a cane from  his' wrist, a gentleman dressed in the  highest and the latest fashion. ���"'"  Yet when one looked more closely it  was seen that this gallant exterior arrayed an ancient gentleman -whose  years were proclaimed by the sharpening of his features, the -wrinkles of his  feet, the crow's feet round his eyes  and his bending shoulders, which he  continually endeavored to set square  and upright. Hat in one hand and'  snuffbox in the NOther, he ambled toward his lordship on tiptoe, which happened just then to be the fashionable  gait.  "Thy servant, Sir Harry." My lord  offered him his hand with condescension. "It warms my heart to see thee.-  Therefore I sent a letter. Briefly, Sir  Harry, wbuldst do me a service?"  "I am always at your lordship's commands. This, I hope, I have proved."  "Then, Sir 'Harry, this is tbe case.  It is probable that for certain private  reasons I may have to pay a visit to a  country town, a town of tarpaulins and  traders, not a town of fashion." Sir  Harry _ shuddered. 'Tatience, my  friend. I know not how long I shall  endure the barbaric company. But I  must go. There are reasons ���let me  whisper, reasons of state, important  secrets���which call me there.'' Sir Harry smiled and looked incredulous. "I  want on the spot a friend"���Sir Harry  smiled again, as one wbo began to understand ��� "a friend who would- appear to be a stranger. Would you,  therefore, play the part of such a  friend?"    ,  "I will do whatever your lordship  commands. Yet to leave- town at this  season"���it was then the month of  April ���"the assembly, the part, the  card table, the society of the ladies��� It  is possible that the Lady Anastasia  may go there. She will, as usual, keep  the bank if she does go."  Tho old beau's face cleared, whether  in anticipation of Lady Anastasla's society or her card table I know not.  "My character, Sir Harry, will be in  your hands. I leave it there confidently. For reasons���reasons of slate~-lt  should be a character of"���  "I understand. Your lordship Is a  model of all the virtues"���  "So we understand. My secretary  will converse with thee further on the  point of expenditure."  Sir Harry retired, bowing and twisting his body something like an ape.  Then a gentleman in scarlet presented himself.  "Your lordship's most obedient," he  said, with scant courtesy. "1 como in  obedience to your letter of command."  "Colonel, you will hold yourself in  readiness to go Into tho country. There  will be play. You may lose as much as  you please to Sir Harry Malyus or to  any one else whom my secretary will  point out to you. Perhaps you may  have to receive a remonstrance from  me. We are strangers, rem cm her, and  I am no gambler, though I sometimes  take a card."   And he,! too, retired.  There remained one suitor. He was a  clergyman dressed in a One silk cassock with bands of the whitest and a  noble wig of the order ecclesiastic. I  doubt IX the archbishop himself had a  finer.  "Good, my lord," he said. "I am, as  usual, a suppliant The rectory of St.  Leonard le Size, Jewry, in the Citv. is  now vacant. With my small benefices  in tho country it would suit me hugely.  A word from your lordship to tho lord  mayor���the rectory Is In the gift of the  corporation���would. I am sure, suffice."  "You are living, as usual. I suppose,  at great expense."  "At small expense considering my  abilities, but still at greater expense  than my slender income will allow.  Am J__uot your lordship's, domestic  chaplain? Must I not keep up the dignity due to the position?"  "Your dignity is costly. I must get a  bishopric or a deanery for you. Meantime I have a small service to ask of  you."  "Small? My lord, let. It be great; It  cannot be too great."  ."It Is that you go Into the country  for me."  "Not to Bath or to Oxford?' ' *  "Not to i either; to another place,  where they know not thy name or thy  fame. Very good. I thought I could  depend upon your loyalty. As for arrangements and time, you will' hear  from my secretary." So my lord turned  oii his heel, and his chaplain was dismissed.  When the levee was finished and  everybody gone, Lord Fylingdale sank  Into a chair. 1 know not the nature of  his thoughts save that" they were not  pleasant, for his face grew darker every moment Finally ho sprang to his  feet and rang, the bell.

First, he  says, color is of the greatest importance. ,Red fire, or red in combination  with yellow, blue and green, nro the  best. Blue by itself is quite valueless,  and the green opal Is not of great value  unless the color Is very vivid and the  pa tteru very good. The color must be  true���that is to say,-it-must not nm ln  streaks or patches, alternating with a  .colorless.or'inferior quality.  rnftcrn. is described as being an Important factor, the several varieties be-  known as "pin fire'.' when the grain i.s  very small, "harlequin" when the color  is all in' small squares, the more regular the better, and the "flash tire" or  "Hash opal" when tbe color shows as a  single flash or in very large pattern.  Harlequin is the most common and is  also popularly considered the most  beautiful. When the squares of color  are regular, and show as distinct, ml- ;  mile checks of red, yellow, blue and  green, it is considered- .magnificent.  Some stones show better on edge than  ou top.  iy  t -  ; ��� (  j  i  r"   ��� i  i  l  i.
