Mr. Whittle.tafT did at last get into

to London. And he ate his .snudwichus
and drank his -herry with an air of

carried his point. And so he had. He

fancied for himself. Imogen, in her
love for Posthumus. gave to him a pict
ure of all that love sTiouid be. It was
thus that he had thought of himself in
all his readings and as years had gone
in he had told himself that for him
there was to be uothing better than
reading. Hut vet his mind had been
pression of her face. He had told him-
. sell distinctly that he was in lovo. and
that his life had not gone so far for
ward as to lea e him stranded on the
j dry sand-hills. She was there living
in ins house, subject to his orders, af
fectionate aud docile: but. as far as he
could judge, a perfect woman. And,
as far as he could judge, there was no
other man whom she loved. Then,
with man)- doubtings, he asked, her the
question, and he soon learned the truth
but not the whole truth.
There had been a man, but hc was
one who seemed to have passed 03 and
left his mark, and then to have gone
on altogether out of sight- She "had

She would, if he asked it, plight her

rJ his thinking would last but zor a

age what rignt hail h- to expect'
aught better than that? She was of'
wh a nature that, when she had given .
herself u p in marriage. hc would ?ur--
y learn to lovo her husband. So he
had accepted her promise, and allowed
himself lor one hour to be a app ,
man. I
Then John Gordon hatl come to his
hou falling Uon it like the blast of a j
storm. He had corneal once instan-
hal felt himself compelled to do .-o 113
the cxi"eneies of the moment- It was
impossible that he should jrive cither
one or the other to understand that
Hut gradually that feeling had disap-
peared and the truth had come home to .
huu. She was as much 1:1 love with
John Gordon as could any girl le with j
the man whom she adored. And the '
other rock on which he had depended
w;.s gradually shhercd beueath his feet.
He had fancied at lir.-t that the man
had come back, as do main adventur
ers, without the means 01 making a
woman happy. It uas not for John
Gordon that he was solicitous but for
Mary Lawrie. If John Gordon were a
pauper, or so neurh ?o as to be able
to offer Mary no honm then it would
clearly Ikj hi- dut3 not to allow the
marriage. Iu Mich ca-e the result to
him would be, if not heavenly, sweet
enough at anv rate to satiafv his long
ings. She would come to him. and ;
John Gordon would depart to I-ondon.
and to the world lnwond. and there 1
would be an end of him. Hut, it became ,

And then there cam" home to him a
finding that were thew so it would be his
dut;- to make up for Mary's sake what
was wanting since he had discovered
of what caliber was the man himself.
It w:ls at Mr. Hall's hous that the
idea had first presented it.-elf to him
with all the lirmuesi of a settled pro
ject. It would he, he hatl said to him--elf.
a great thing for a man to do.
What, after all, is the mcanitig of love,
but that a man should do hi- best to
serve tiie woman he hnes? "Who cares
a straw for him?"" he said to himself, as
though to exempt hunnelf irom any
idea of general chartt3. and to prove
that all tiie pood which he intended to
do wa-- to be done for love alone. Xot

concerned. I am. at anv rate, more

to mvself than John Gordon. I do not
believe in doing a kind news of such a
nature as that to such a one. But for
her! And 1 could not hold her to my
bosom, knowing that she would so
much rather be in the arms of another
man." All this ho said to himself; but
he said it in words fully formed, and
with the thoughts on which the words
wcro based clearly established,

he told lumsilf that
could not be so. anil that the dream
must be llung to the winds. A certain
amount of strength was now demanded
of him. and he thought that iie would
be abie to use it. "So, nr.- dear, not
me; it 111:13 not be thcit you" should be
come 1113- wiie. though all the promises
under Heaven had been given. Though

3ou shall never become. I have meant
well, but have been untortunate, 2Cow
3oa know the state of 1113 mind, than
which nothing Is more fixed on this
earth." It was thus that he would
speak to hcr, and then he would turn
aw 33: and the term of his misery would
have commenced.
On the next morning he got up and
prepared for his interview with John
Gordon. He walked up and down tbe
sward of the Green Park, thinking to
himself of the language which hc would
use. If he could only tell the man that
he hated him, while he surrendered to
him the g.ri whom he Jovcd so dearly,
it would be well. For in truth there
was nothing of Christian charity in his
heart towards John Gordon.

of railroad mileage comes the extension
