your chance while you have a young
man willing t w:t t upon 3011."
"I tOiall be ttu te delighted," said
Ulake, "and .-o wdl John (Wrdon."
'Ouiy that I shall be in London this
time to-morrow," said Gordon.
"That's nonsense. You aro not
going to Kimbcrly all at once. The
young ladies expect you to bring out a
lot of diamonds and show them before
you start. Have 3011 seen diamonds,
Indeed, no," said Mary.
'l fiiink 1 should have just asked to
.see them." said Evelina Hall. Why
should the3 join her name with his in
this uncivil manner, or suppose that
she had any special power to induce
him to snow his treasures.
"When 3ou first lind a diamond,"
said Mr. Hall, "what do 3011 do with it?
Do you ring a bell rnd call together
your friends, and begin to rejoice?"
"Xo, indeed. The diamond is gener

nigger, ami then we have to look ver3
.sharp after him to see that he doesn't
hide it under his toe-nails. It's not a
ver3 romantic kind of business from
lirst to last."
"Onty profitable,"' said the curate.
"That may be. It is subject to
greater loscs than the preaching of
"1 should liko to go out and seo it
all," said Miss Hall, looking into Miss
Lawrie's face. This also appeared to
Mar3 to be ill-natured.
Then the butler announced the din
ner, and they all followed Mr. Hall and
the curate's bride out of one room into
the other "This 3'onng lad3," said he,
"is supposed to be in the ascendant just
at the present moment. She can't be
married above two or three times at
the most. I say this to excuse ni3'self
to M:bs Lawrie, who ought perhaps to
have the post of honor." To this some
joking replv was made, and the all sat
down to their dinner. Miss Lawrie
was at Mr. Hall's left hand, and at her
Jeft hand Jolur Gordon was seated.
Man coidd perceive that ovennhing
was "arranged so as to throw herself
and John Gordon together as though
they had some special interest in each
other. Of all this Mr. Whittlestatr saw
nothing. But John Gordon d d per
ceive something, and told himself that
that a?s Blake had been at work. But
his perceptions in the matter were not
half as sharp as those ot Mary Lawrie.
"I used to be ver3 fond of your
father, Gordon," said Mr. Hall, when
the dinner was half over "It's all
done and gone now. Dear, dear, dear!"
"He was an unfortunate man. and
perhaps expected too much from his

"Yes, indeed ; and when a fellow

"I shall do so. probably. I have

"You have uncles and aunts?" said
"One uncle and two aunts. I shall

""How long will that take?" asked
Mr. Hall. The conversation was kept
up solelv between Mr. Hall and John
Gordon." JUr. WhittlestatY took no
share in it unless when he was asked a
question, and the four girls kept up a
whisper with Miss Forrester aud Mon
"I have a share in rather a

"Oh, dear! Then we may have you

"w-ould certainly have made Alary Law

"when prepared for another wish", he'd
have more than he could eat."
" "To tell the truth." said John Gor
don, "I don't quite know what L should
do. It would depend, perhaps, on what
sonicl)od3 else would join me in doing.
M3 life was ver3 lonely at Kimberky,
and I do not love being alone."
"Then why don't 3'ou take a wife?''
said Montagu Biake, very loudlv, as
though he 7iad hit the target right in
the bull's-eye. Ho so spoke as to brin
the conversation to an abrupt end Mr.
Whittlestafl immediately looked con
scious. He was a man who, on such
an occasion, could not look otherwise
than conscious. And the live girls, with
all of whom the question of'the loves
of John Gordon and Mar3 Lawrie had
been fully discussed, Io iked conscious.
Mary Lawrie was painfull) conscious :
but endeavored to hide it, not unsuc
cessfully. But in herendeavor she had
to look unnaturally stern and was con
scious, too, that she did t'uit. Mr.
Hall, whose feelings of romance were
not, perhaps, of the highest order,
looked round on Mr. WhittlestaH and
Mary Lawrie. Montagu Blake felt that
he had achieved a triumph. "Yes,"
sad he, "if thoe are your feelings, why
don't 3ou lake a wife?"
"One man m:i not be so happ a.s
another," said Goidou, laughing. "You
have suited yourself admirabh. and
seem to think it quite ca-y for a man to
make a select-on."
"Not quite such a selection as mine,
perhaps," said Blake.
Then think of the diflicult. Do
you suppose that any second Miss Kor-re-ter
would dream of going to the dia-mond-tields
with mo ? '
"l'orhaps not." said Blake. "Not a
fecond Miss Forrester but somebody
"Weil -3es: inferior to my Miss For
"You are the most conceited young
man that I ever came across," said the
3'oung lad herself.
"And 1 am not inclined to put up
with aiything that is very inferior,"
said John Gordon. He could not help
his eo from glancing for a moment
round upon Mary Lawrie. She was
aware of it, though no one else noticed
it in the room. She was aware of it,
though air one watching her would
have said that she had never looked at
"A man may always lind a woman to
suit, if he looks well about him," said
Mr. Hall, sententious. "Don't vou
think so, Whittlestaff?"
"I dare s:i3 he may," said Mr Whit
tlestnir, very llatly. And as lie said so
he made up his mind that he would, for
that da postpone the task of telling
Mr. Hall of his intended marriage.
The evening passed bv, and the time
came for Mr. WhittlestafTto drive Miss
Lawrie bark to C'rokcr's Hall. She had
certainly spent a most uneventful
period, as far as action or even words
of her own was com erned. But the
afternoon was one which she would
never forget. She had been quite, quite
sure, when she came into the hou-e;
but she was more than sure now. At
every word that had been spoken she
had thought of herself and of him.
Would he not have known how to have
chosen a fit companion, onl for this
great misfortune? And would she have
been so much inferior to Miss Forrester?
Would he have thought her inferior to
an3 one? Would he not havo preferred
her to aii3 other female whom the world
had at the present moment produced?
Oh. the )it of it: the uity of it!
Then came the binding of adieux.
Gordon was to sleep at Little Arlesford
that night, and to lake his departure
l3 early train on the next morning. Of
the adieux spoken the next morirng
we need take no notice, but only of the
word or two uttered that night. "Good
bye, Mr. Gordon," said Mr. Whittle
statV, having taken courage for the oc
casion, and having thought even of the
necessary syllables to be spoken
"Good-bye, Mr. Wliittlcstaff." and he
gave his rival his hand in apparenth
friend grasp. To those burning ques
tions he nad asked he had received no
word of reph: but they were questions
which he would not lepeat again.
"Good-le. Mr. Gordon." j-aid Man.
She had thought of the moment much,
but had determined at last that she
would trust herself to nothing further.
He took her hand, but did not sa a
word. He took it and pressed it for a
moment, and thou turned his face
away, and went in from the hall back
to the door leading to the drawing
room. Mr. WhittlestatY was at the mo
ment putting on his great-coat, and
Man stood with her bonnet and cloak
on at the open front-door, listening to
a word or two from Kattio Forrester
and Evelina Hall. "Oh, 1 wish, I wish
it might have been!" said Kattie For
rester. "And so do I," said Evelina. "Can't
Good-night," said Mary, boldly,
stepping out rapidh into the moon
light, and mounting without assistance
to her place in the open carriage.
"I beg jour pardon." said Mr. Hall,
following her : but there came not a
word from her.
Mr. Whittlestaff had gone back after
John Gordon. "B3-the-bve." he said,
"what will be vour address iu Lon
"The 'Oxford ami Cambridge,' in
Pall Mall," said he.
"Oh, yes; the club there. It might
be that I should have a word to send to
von. But I don't sunoose I shall." hn
added, as he turned round to go awav.
Then he shook bauds with the party in
the hall, and mounting up into the car
riage, drove Man and himself away
homeward towards Croker's Hall.
Not a word was spoken between them
for the first mile, nor did a sound of a
sob or an audible suspicion of a tear
come from Mary. WI13- did those girls
know the secret of her heart in that
waj ? Why had they dared to express
a hope as to an event, or an idea as to
a disappointment, all knowledge of
which ought to be buried ia her own
bosom? Had she spoken of her love
for John Gordon ? She was sure no
word had escaped her,. And were it
surmised, was it not customary that
suck surmises should be kept in the
dark? But here thes young ladies had

lirst mile, she choked herself to keejf
down her .obi.
".Man," at lat ho whispered to her.
Well. Mr. Whittlestafl?"
"Mary, we are both of us unhappy."
"I am notunhapiiv' she aid. pluck

"YoujBm so. I at an' rate am un

"I did wrong to take ou to dine in

It was not for me to refuse to go."
"No; there 13 no blame to 3ou in it;
nor is there blame to inc. But it
would have been better for us both had
we remained awav." Then he drove
on in silen e. and did not speak anoth
er word tili they reached home.
"Well!" ,a:d Mrs. Baggett. following
them into the dining-room.
"What do 3 011 mean by well?'"
"What did the folks "sa. to you at

"You do not wish it at all." he re

"I think you pro-s me too hard."
Then she remembered herself, and the
perfect .sacrifice which she was minded
to make. "No; I do not wish again to

"Yes: you can go to bed.'' he said.
Then she gave him her hand in sileuce,
and went oil to her own room.
She had no sooner reached her bed
than she threw herself 0:1 it and burst
into tears, ah tins wmcii sue had to
endure all that she would have to bear

then, though she might, have felt him
to be cruel," still she would have re
spected him. He would have done, as
she believed, as other men do. But ho
wished to gain his object, and 3'ct not

thought of him. "And it shall bo as
he would have it," she said to herself.
But, though she saw far imo his char-

tlestatr could speak and think with tho
greatest confidence. It would be safe,
happy and bright, should Mary Lavrio
become his wi:c. Should she not do so,
it must bc altogether ruined and con
fouuded. He could not conceive it to be possi
ble that he should be required 1)3 dnt3'
to make such a sacrifice: but he knew
of himself that if her happiness, her
true and permanent happiness, would
require it, then the sacriliee should be
mrs. nvofJtrrT's pun.o?ornr.
The next da3 was Saturda and Mr.
Wliittlcstaff came out of his room
earby, intending to speak to Mrs. I3ag
getL He had declared to himself that
it was his purpose to give her some
sound advice respecting her own afiairi
as far as her affairs and his were con
nected together. IJut low down in his
mind, below the stratum in which his
declared resolution was apparent tc
himself, there was a hope that he might
get from her some comfort and strength
as to hi- present p irpo-e. Not but that
he would nlt'mateh do as he himself
had determined: but. to tell the truth,
he had not quite determined, and
thought that a word from Mis. Bagwell
might assist Ifm.
As he came out of his room he en
countered Mary, intent upon her house
hold duties. It was something before
her usual time, and he was siiqmsed.
She had looked ill over night, nnd
worn, and he had expected "that she
would keep her bed. " v hat makes vou i
so earlv, Marv?" lie spoke to "her
with his softest and most affectionate
"1 couldn't sleep, and I thought I
might as well be up."5 She followed
him into the librar and when there
he put his arm round -her waist and
kissed her forehead. It was a strange
thing for him to do. She felt that it
was so ver, very strange; but it never
occurred to her tfiat it behoved her to
be angry at his caress. He had kissed
her once before, and only once, and it
had seemed to her that he had intended
that their love-making should go oa
without kisses. But was she not bis
property, to do as he pleased with her?
Ana there could be no groamd for dia
pleasure on her part
