"Yea! at once, and I hope I iball find

Ithel mw him handle the injured man
so gently, and soothe him with kind, en

possess a heart of almost womanly feel

After Earle Elfenstein withdrew, a
late dinner was announced, aud in the
dining room Lady Couatanca pn-sented
t Ethel her nephew, Hobert Glenden
lng, and niece. Belle, his slater, the
trmer greeting her with rather an Inso

bow cxpreive of haughty contempt,
From that moment Ethel saw that
aalther of these young people would pro
toots her happiness while she remained
Ktder this roof.
Mr. Glandennlng did converse with
tor, but it waa with such an evident air
ti conudeaeension that her replies were
brief and cold, while his sister remained
tilsnt during the whole meal, with the
ttoeption of answering one or two ques
tions a.'ked by Lady Constance, which
answers were given in a cold, mechanical

The prospects particularly in view at

and hand of the new physician lately set
Bed in the place.
She had been introduced to him at the
Wtwe of a friend, and hnd admired his
aiegant bearing, handsome face and quiet
Banner, and instantly had resolved to
Uy siege to his heart.
After leaviug the table, the ladies re
wired to the piazza, followed by Mr.
Blandennltig. As Belle paused to pluck
from one of the vines a few flowers for
ksr neck, Lady Constance turned to
Bthal and remarked:
"I suppose you have no friends in
eVW vicinity, having but just arrived."
Ethel hesitated, while a faint blush
suffused brow and cheek as she replied:
"I have found one here very unexpect
edly. Dr. Elfenstein. We crossed the
Atlantic on the same vessel, and as my
fcont waa taken very HI during the voy
age he attended her, and consequently,
became well acquainted."
Instantly Belle's attention was riveted
7 those remarks, and with a sneer she
"I presume, then, you waylaid him
able afternoon in order to renew the ac
laalntance." Tardon me!" replied Ethel, with dig
fctty. "I waylaid no one! We met cas
feajly on this piazza aa he was about
entering to aee Sir Reginald, and con
versed for a few moments."
"It seems to me for the future, when
Ey uncle's physician visits blm, it would
i well for you to remember that you
ftow occupy the position of a subordinate,
and therefor should not put on the airs

the rnde and unladylike reply.
"Bells," interposed Lady Constance,

tlnd hearted and just, "you forget that

"Or, a gentlewoman's pooT relation!"
sras the cutting answer.
"A remarkably beautiful one, how
arer," said the brother. "Say, Belle,"
be added, teaxingly, "yon must take care
er she will carry off some of your beaux!"
The indignant girl gave him a glance
af withering scorn, but merely said, with
an angry toss of her head:

Ethel could scarcely control her Indig

Iron book. This led to the rain, and
with a beating heart she opened It.
Close by the door she found a email
covered basket that she knew must con
tain what fie sought. Grasping it quick
ly, she again fastened the uoor, as Sir
Reginald had instructed ber to do, and
passed down the corridor.
There ahe found the entrance to the
tower, and resolving to take some bright
sunshiny day to visit this spot, she turn
ed, as she had been directed, to count out
the number of panela on the left hand
wall, and Immediately di--covered the
faint crack, that she knew must be what
she sought. Inserting the point of the
knife, she turned three times, when the
panels parted and there lay the shelves.
Opening then the basket, she found
food in small pieces, connisliiig of broken
biscuits, bits of chicken, potatoes, and
quite a quantity of neat, cut in mouth
ful. This she placed on the shelves
u;on the wooden plate on which it was
heaped. Then gently thovlng the shelves,
they slcwly whirled around, and when
the same side returned to ber, the plate
stood upon it empty, ready to be placed
again in the basket.
"That ape must have been trained,"
she thought, "to empty the plate and re
She listened for a moment, but all was
still. Shoving to the panels, she found
that they relocked themselves, so taking
up candlestick, knife and basket, she
placed the latter again outside the door,
fastened It securely, and reached her own
room in safety.
The task required of her hnd been a
singularly unpleasant one. She waa a
l.rave young girl, and had endured but
few feelings of fear, hut she had trem
bled, because the thing required so much
secrecy. She disliked mysteries of all
kind, and her honest, open nature re
volted from the w-bole work.
One thing she decided to do, she
should take tome morning hour to ex
plore the ruins, and that Haunted Tower,
so that ahe might become accustomed to
oil the dangers and teculiitrUies of the
place before jther oflices were required
at her hand
With thU .solution still In her mind,
sie sought tho luxurious bei that await
ed her, and tncre fell at once into a
pleasant sleep, Trorn which she never
aroused until he bright rays of another
mom in 5 sun stole Into her roo-m.
Springing up, she dressed as soon as
possible, and opeiiiiig her door, found
by questioning a maid, that the family
did not rise until late, as their breakfast
hour waa from ten to eleven.
All being quiet In the room of the in
valid, she returned to her own apart
ment, find fastening the door securely,
resolved at once to start upon her explor
ing expedition, as she felt that she would
be for at least an hour and a half unob
served, and mistress of her own time and
With a little of the trembling nerv
ousness of the night before, the brave
girl opened the intervening doors and
stepped into the corridor. All was fold
ed in the same solemn stillness that made
the place oppressive on the previous
She revived to explore the ruined
parts before she sought the tower, there
fore unhooked the door, and stepped out.
As she did so, she noticed that the cov
ered basket was still there.
The door opened directly into a small
rickety hall that led into several large
rooms, all dusty, mouldy and more or less
dilapidated. Urcken windows, torn wall
papers, bare rafters, seen through iin
rnense pieces where ceilinga had fallen,
were everywhere visible. Some rooms
were filled with broken furniture, pieces
of old clilna and fragments of time-worn
castoff cloU.iu g.
Ethel looked at these dilapidated ob
jects, and found herself wonderl-ig why
Sir Reginald had not had the whole pull
ed down and removed? Its destruction
certainly would heighten the value of the
property, while Its presence only spoke
of neglect and untidiness.
One thing she observed In her ramble
there was an eaay mode uf egress and lii
gvecs to this part into the ball, and
marks of recent footsteps on the floor
told that this formed the entrance pjacc
to the person who prepared and brought
the food she was nightly to place on the
Another thing struck her; in all the
premises there was not the slightest ap
pearance of the concealed" room. Only a
bare, blank wall appeared npon the aide
where she knew it must be.
Retracing her a'.eps after all had been
examined, she refusteiied the door, and
then sought the Haunted Tower. The
door leading to this waa closed, bat not
bolted, so she opened It, and crossing
quite a Isrge square place, she began as
cending a long flight of stairs. The steps
were steep, and not at all easy, and she
became very tired before sbe resetted

but not before she paused to rest upon a
broad flat landing; paused, too, with hor

the conversation that ensued.
Dr. Elfenstein was rather a small
talker, and this natural reserve tended to
make bis professional interviews at the
hall brief, and usually confined closely
to bis medical work.
But this morning he seemed to linger,
and converx-d quite freely upon many of
the topics of the day. Finally he com

the night before the baronet's accident,

"Cut you may believe me, sir, when I
