Dulde went down the steps and across

hedge of the orchard. It would be cool in

On New Year's eve there was a dinner
party at A obey lands. The grand recep
tion room were thronged; the whole
place biHr.(-d with light and echoed with
music. All the great folk for miles around
were there, and some who could not be
called great folk at all. Among these lat
ter were Mrs. Hardinge and Esther.
i nere were a rew nanosome women
there, very many pretty and charming
ones; but not one so beautiful as Esther
Durraut that night.
Julian Carre, the center of a group of
officers from Maidstone, stood in one of
the doorwaya, watching ber, among the
rest. She was dancing with Lord Harvey
at the time, and as slie passed (be saw
him and bowed with a smile.
"Who is she, Carre?" young Lord Pe

Julian Carre frowned and then smiled.

came to the fountain. By the margin
there was a rustic bench. As she sat
there, white aud is; ill, looking a pale ghost
of a woman iu her soft, shining evening
dres, someone came quickly down one of
the sMe paths toward her. It was Lord
Harvey. Esther, looking up and seeing
him there, felt her face growing hot. Of
all men, he w as the last she would have
cared to see just then, if site could have
had her wish.

hhe walked aenms the giuss beside him.
Once when she lifted her face to aiwwer
him, he saw that it was troubled. She
tried to talk as usual, but she could not.
The shadow of pain in her ryes broke
down nis self-control. He never quite
knew what he said, and perhaps Esther
could not have told if she had ls-eit asked.
She only knew that he loved her still, that

kind of anguish came over him, lest his
rajihncfs had helped to turn her heart (til!

ed her head and looked at him, all his
fears tied. He knew then that she loved
him, and that he would not need to teach
