Among the letters whiclrrLord-Lyd-"
Jqrkoojkffoundcat tho club on his return
from'a six months' ynchting cruiso was
one fijbm his sister, Lady .Tiilia Marcli
hiont, containing tho startling news
that her daughter Eva had actually on
gaged horsolt to tho second coachman.
Lord Lydbrook Very rarely allowed, any
thing to disturb his equanimity, but his
sister's letter caused him gonuino un
easiness. He' knew that his niece Eva
'as a willful, headstrong girl, Ayith ro
mantic notions and a strong-minded
contempt lor conventionalities. Cdn
lidorable sensation had beou caused
last season by a young lady of good
family eloping with her father's groom,
and Lord Lydbrook did not wish a
niece of his to disgrace horsolf by a

was an academy at Ulackridgo, and so
mother sent mo to live tliero for a

.lorry's two boys, Ham and Mow (right
names Hamilton and Mowbray), lived
there all tho time, and Undo Jerry ami
Aunt Anna, too, and wo had just tho
best fun that over any boys did havo;
I don't mean Uncle Jerry and Aunt
Anna; thoy didn't go in for fun, you

village, and Aunt Anna staid in tho

of tho kind to bo disobeyed; besides,
wo loved him too well for that. Hut ho

once a week or so we spent tho day with

and I think we liked tho visit to lliom

grandpa called "a progressive man" 1
used to wonder what that meant, and
say it over to myself whenever I saw
him and he wanted Frank and Goorgo
to understand everything that was go

and they had a tool-chest, and a printing-press,
and all kinds of drawing

to makd things when wo wont there,

Ono morning in July wd set oil', ex

of a time. Air. Davis had got tho boys

who had walked on
"Como on, boys!"
ahead of .Kitty.
. !'Stop," HtiidHam; "lot's tlo Kitty

So wo led her to tho shade of1 somo
trees op tho edgy of a pioc) otw.oods,
wlioVo sho would bo safe from the hor
nets, aUd'ticd her fasl; then ll"vo
went, full tilt, after Alow. He was
staring up into n.hollow tree, where wo
could nist soo tho hornets' nest, looking
like a brown-papor parcel full of holes,
and a big fat one it was. ,4 -
"There's millions in it," said he, as
we calm) up; but he didn't mean money,
only hornets. , . .1 . 1
TjiU pleased us ,very much; iot that
we wore exactly fond of hornets, but it
nmdo it more exciting. , 'omattqrxwhut
a boy fs dolnV, he always 1ms. ui go forn
hornets' msr. when lid sVos itV and wo
never thought abqut being warm or
anything else, but just to send thoso
hornets Hying. Wo could see a few of
them crawling in and pu, and bunging
round their paper houe, and wo meant
to give them' a' hint tlint'thuy'd' boon

J he tree was quite low, and wo got
long sticks and went at them. Wd had
11 lively time of it. The hornets oanio
swnrmhig out. at us Hko tun-, thousand
red-hot locomotives, burning us every
where at once, for tliev stung us lllco
fun; and we ran for do.au life, aiUhou
came back and hacked away ntMhom,
our faces blazing with heat, anil pu'r
Mpiralioh oozing frrtnl ev'ery pord. ' Vo
took off our jackets at tho beginning of
the fray, or there would not havo been
much of them let I. for the hornets wero
lis mad as t hoy could by,jiiiiJ,so,wero.wo.
We kcpViCup for hours, never tliiuking

well demolished. When tho hornets
wero nearly gone, and there wasn't
much of the nest, to lie seen three tired
boys limpoil off rather Inmuly to Kitty's
cool bower, and, throwing themselves
down on tho ground, fell last asloop.
Whon thoy awoko, each lookod.at tho

tipper lip was puffed 'way out, and, ono
cyo closed; Alow's nose'lookod' llko a
largo pink potato; whilo as for mo,
tho hornets seemed to havo attacked
overy feature I had. Tho lengthening
shadows warned us that it was suppcr
tinio. and with a puzzled feeling about
our visit at thu Davises, wo turned our
highly ornamented faces homo ward.
" What has liapponcdP" dried grand
ma, as we eamo within sight of tho
family gathered on tho porch. "Do
look at those boysl"
Of course every ono looked at us; and
as soon as thoy had sottled tho matter,
thoy nmdd us look ton liiuos worso than
over by daubing our faces with mini.
Wo woro rather afraid of punishment,
at least by being sent pupporless
to lied; and I thhik wo never loved
grandma so much as whoii, calling us
into the kitchen, sho gavo us 0110 or tho
best suppers wo over liad in our lives.
All that was ever said to us was said
by grandpa tho noxt morning, with a
comical twist of his eye. " Boys, whon
you want another hornets' nest, you
needn't go quite so far after it. Thoro's
