time to-morrow," said Oordou.
"That's nonsense. You are not
going to Kimborly all at once. The
.young ladies expect you to bring out a
lot of diamonds and show them before
you Mart. Have you seen diamonds.
Indeed, no," said Mary.
"I rtiink 1 sliould have just .'isked to
-see them.'' said Evelina Hall. Why
should they join her name with his in
this uncivil manner, or suppose that
.she had airy special power to induce
him to snow his treasure.
"Wheu you lirst find a diamond,"
said Mr. Mall, "what do you do with it?
Do you ring a bell :nd" call together
your friends, and begin to rejoice?"
"N'o, indeed. The diamond is gener
ally washed out of the mud by some
nigger, and then we have to look very
.sharp after him to see that he doesn't
hide it under his toe-nails. It's not a
very romantic kind of business from
first to last."
"Only profitable," said the curate.
"That 'may be. It is subject to
greater losses than tho preaching of
l should liko to go out and see it
all," said Miss Hall, looking into Miss
Lawrie's face. This also appeared to
ilary 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 .young lady," 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 mest I say this to excuse myself
to M:s Lawrie, who ought perhaps to
have the post of honor." To this some
joking reply was made, and they all sat
down to their dinner. Miss Lawrie
was at Mr. Hall's left hand, and at bel
ief t hand Jolur Cordon was seated.

was arranged so as to throw herself

nothing. But John Cordon d d per
ceive something, and told himself that
that aft! 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 ven' fond of your
father, Cordou," said Mr. Hall, when
the dinner was half over "It's all
done and gone now. Dear, dear, dear!"

"One uncle and two aunts. I shall

"How long will that take?" asked
Mr. Hall. The conversation was kept

My life was very lonely at Kimberlev',

'Then why don't ou take a wife?"
said Montagu Blake, very loudlv, as
though he 7iad hit the target right in
the bull s-eye. Ho sospokc as to brm
the conversation to an abrupt end Mr.
Whittlestatr immediately looked con
scious. He was a man who, on such
an occasion, could not look otherwise
than conscious. And the tivo girls, with
all of whom the question of the loves
of John Gordon and Mary Lawrie had
been fully discussed, lo ked conscious.
Marj Lawrie was painfully conscious:
but endeavored to hide it, not unsuc
cessfully. But in her endeavor she had
to look unnaturallystcrn and was con
scious, too, that .she did t!,at. Mr.
Hall, whose feelings of romance were
not. perhaps, of the highest order,
looked round on Mr. Whiulestair and
Mary Lawrie. Montagu Blake felt that
lie had achieved a triumph. "Yes,"
sahl he, "if thoe are your feelings, why
don't you take a wife?"
"One man may not be so happy as
another," said Gin don, laughing. "You
hae suited vour-elf admirably, and
seem to think it quite ea-sy for a man to
make a .select-on."

am not inclined to put up
with anything that is very inferior,"
said John Gordon. He could not help
his eye 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 any one watching her would
have said that she had never looked at

Mr. Hall, sontentiouslv. "Don't
think so, Whittlestaff?"
"I dare say he may," said Mr Whit

he made up his mind that he would, for
that day, postpone the task of telling
Mr. Hall of his intended marriage.

ening passed by, and the time
Mr. WhiUlesta'irto drive Miss
Lawrie ba-k to (.'rokcr's Hall. She had
certainly spent a most uneventful
period, as far as action or even words
of her own was coin erned. But the
afternoon was one which she would
never forget. She had been quite, quite
sure, when she came into the houc;
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, only for this
great misfortune? And would she have
been so much inferior to Miss Forrester?
Would he havo thought her inferior to
any one? Would he not havo preferred
her to any other female whom the world
had at the present moment produced?
Oh. the pity of it: the pity of it!
Then came the bidding of adienx.
Gordon was to sleep at Little A lies ford
that night, and to take his departure
by early train on the next morning. Of
the adieux spoken the next mornmg
we need take no notice, but only of the
word or two uttered that night. "Good
bye. Mr. Gordon." said Mr. Whittle
stalV, having taken courage for the oc
casion, and having thought even of the
necessary syllables to bespoken
"Good-bye, Mr. Whittlestaff." and he
gave his rival his hand in apparently
friendly grasp. To those burning ques
tions he had a-ked he had received no
word of reply: but they were questions
which he would not icpeat again.
"Good-bye. Mr. Gordon," taid Mary.
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 say a
word. He took it and pressed it for a
moment, and then turned his face
away, and went in from the hall back
to the door leading to the drawing
room. Mr. WhittlestalT was at the mo
ment putting on his great-coat, and
Mary stood with her bonnet and cloak
on at the open front-door, listening to
a won! or two from Kattie Forrester
and Evelina Hall. "Oh, I wish. I wish
it might have beeu!" said Kattie For
rester. "And so do I," said Evelina. "Can't
"Good-night," said Mary, boldly,
stepping out rapidly into the moon
light, and mounting without assistance
to her place in the open carriage.
"I beg your pardon," said Mr. Hall,
following her; but there came not a
word from her.
Mr. Whittlestaff had gone back after
John Gordon. "By-the-hye," he said,
"what will be your address iu Lon
"The 'Oxford and Cambridge,' in
Pall Mall," sa-d he,
"Oh, yes; the club there. It might
be that I should have a word to send to
you. But I don't suppose I shall," he
added, as he turned round to go away.
Then lie shook hands with the" party "in
the hall, and mounting up into the car
riage, drove Mar and himself away
homeward towards Croker s Hall.
jot 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. Why did those girls
know the secret of her heart in that
way ? 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
1 dark? But here tb.es young ladies had
daiftd to pity her for her rain lore, as

"No; there is no blame to you in it;

"Yes: you can go to bed." he said.
Then she gave him her hand in silence,
and went o!f to her own room.
She had no sooner reached her bed
than she threw herself 0:1 it and burst
into tears. All this which she had to
all that she would have to bear
would be, idio thought, too much for
her. And there came upon her a feel
ing of contempt for his cr ielty. Had
hesternly resolved to keep her to her
promised word, and to forbid her all
iappincs for the future to make hci

promised to becuue my wife, and now
you shall not depart from it because
this interloper has come between us;"'
then, though she might have felt him (
to be cruel, still she would have re
spected him. He would havo done, as
she believed, a other men do. But ho
wished to gain his object, and yet not
appear to le cruel. It. was so that she
thought of him. "And it shall bo as
he would have it," she said to herself.
But, though she saw far into his ehar- ,
acter. she did not quite read it aright. I
He remained there alone in Iih li
brary into the late hours of the night.
But he diil not even take up a Ixiok
with the idea of solacing his hours. He,
too, had his idea of self-sacrifice, which
w.-Mit imili. ?i f;ir ri! Ihm-4 IJllf. vet, hn
was not as sure :us was she that the self -
sacrifice would be a duty. He did not
believe, as she did. in the character of j
John fiord n. What if he should give ;
her up to one who did not deserve her
to one whose future would not be '
stable enough to secure the happiness
and welfare of such a woman as was
Marv Lawrie! He had no knowledge to
guide him, nor had she; nor, for the
matter of that, had John Gordon him-
self any knowledge of what his own fu- '
ture might be. Of his future Mr. Whit
tlestalT could speak and think with tho
greatest confidence. It would bo safe,
happy and bright, should Mary La.vrio
become his wile. Should she not do so,
it must be altogether ruined and con- '
He could not conceive it to be possi
ble that he should be required by duty
to make such a sacrifice; but he knew
of himself that if her happiness, her
true and permanent happiness, would
require it, then the saerilice should be

The next day was Saturday, and Mr.
Whittlestatl came out of his room
early, intending to speak to "Mrs. Bag'
gett. He had declared to himself that
it was his purpose to give her some
sound advice respecting her own affairs.
as far as her a flairs aud his were con
nected together. But 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. Xot but that
he would ultimately do as lie himself
had determined: but. to tell the truth,
he had not quite determined, and
thought that a word from Mrs. Baggelt
might assist h:m.
As he came out of his room he en
countered Mary, intent upon her house
hold duties. It was something before
her usual time, aud he was surprised.
She had looked ill over night, and
worn, and he had expected "that she j
would keep her bed. "What makes you
so early, Mary?" He spoke to her
with his softest and most affectionate
"I couldn't sleep, and I- thought I
might as well be up." She followed
him into the library, 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 very, very strange; but it never
occurred to her that 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 his
property, to do as he pleased with her?
Ana there could be no groamd for djs
pleasure on her part.
