They passed from room to room, find
ing each one gloomier tlian Its picde
ccssor. Tlio old man pointed out the
pictures and various relics which ho
thought might he Interesting, and
CausBldlere glanced about him with
eyes like a hawk. As they passed on
ward his face became less radiant; a
frown of weariness and disappoint
ment began to cloud his brow. At
length the whole of the caHtle had been
oxamlned, and the two men began to
descend the quaint oaken stairs. Cam
flldicre, lingering as If In no hante to
go, still talked pleasantly and glanced
Impatiently about him.
Presently they passed this half open
door of ft kind of boudoir. Caussldlere,
who had looked keenly In, paused sud
denly. "Surely," he said, "I know that fare!"
Tho old man went forward and
pushed open the door, and the French
man, following closely behind him, en
tered the room and stood thoughtfully
regarding tho object which had arrest
ed his attention. It was a picture, a
good sized painting, which hung above
" 'TIs Marjorlc Annan," explained the
old man, "foster daughter to the minis

she likes the lassie, an becauso it bus

Tho Frenchman stared.
"Llko Miss Hethcrlngton?"
"Ay, like hersel'," returned the, old
man. "You'd be no denying Itself If
you saw tho picture In that press, "ris
Miss Hethcrlngton at seventeen or
eighteen years of age."
"I should llko to see the picture."
"Aweel, aweel, you should see It; but

"Ay, I could get it." returned Sandic,

Tho moment he was gone Caussl
dlero's face and manner underwent a
completo change Ho sprang from the
room, as it wore, with cat-like fury,
turned over papers, opened drawers,
ransacking everything completely. At
last he camo upon a drawer which
would not open; it was In a writing
cabinet, tho counterpart of one ho had
at home; he pressed a hidden spring;
in a moment the drawer flew open, and
Caussldlere was rapidly going over the
papers which It contained.
Suddenly he started, drew forth a
paper, opened, and read It. A gleam of
light passed over his face. He folded
tho paper, thrust It Into the Inner
pocket of his coat and closed tho draw
er. When tho old man returned with
his key ho found Caussldlere, with his
hands behind him, regarding the pic
ture of Marjorlo Annan.

Lorraine's consent that Marjorlo should

This done, sho ordered the coach
man to drive to Dumfries.
When they reached tho town they
drovo straight to Caussldlere's lodg
ing, and with a very determined face
tho lady of tho Castlo doscended and
walked up the doorsteps.
Sho knocked sharply at the door,
which was immediately opened by a
"I'm seeking tho gentleman that
lodges here tho French teacher," she
said, stepping without ceremony Into
Caussldlere, who was within, put his
head out of tho door of his room, and
recognized his visitor at once with a

Sho followed him Into his little It
tlngroom, and stood loaning upon her

eyes, while bo drew forward a chair

ed grimly and glanced round tho apart
ment at tho tablo littered with corro
spoRdonco, at tho books scattorod hero
knd there, at tho roses and creepers
which peeped In at the open window.
Then Bho walked to the chair he nad
prepared for her, and sitting down,
looked at him fixedly again. Not In tho
least daunted, ho stood smiling at hor,
and waiting for her to explain her
At last she spoke In her native

As sho asked the question, Miss Heth
crlngton drew out an old fashioned silk
purse and began examining its cjn
tents. Finding that tho Frenchman
did not reply, she looked up and repeat
"How mucklo Is Marjorlo Annnn ow
ing ye? Tell me that, If you please."
"Nothing, Miss HethOrlngton," he re
plied. "Naethlng? Then Marjorlo has paid
yo already, maybe."
"Yen, she has paid me," returned
Naturally ouough his manner Irid
changed, and hbt courteous smile hud
given way to a cold expression of
hauteur, tempered with gentle Indig
nation. "How mucklo has sho paid ye?" de
manded the lady of the castle.
"Sho has paid mo," nnswerod the
Frenchman, "with her sympathy, with
her sweet society. I have not taken
money from her. I shall never take It.
My labor, Miss Hethcrlngton, has boon
a labor of love."
Tho lady's eyes flashed, and putting
up her purse, she uttered an Impatient
"Nao doubt," sho cried, "tint from
this day forward your labor's done. I
have como hero to pay you your hire,
and to tell you with my nln mouth thul
Marjorlo Annan's French lessons mo
ended, and that If she needs malr she'll
Kjt them from another teacher."
Caussldlere flushed angrily, but still
preserved his composure.
"May I ask a question, Miss Hether
liiBton?" "If you please."
"I should like to know what authority
you have to act on behalf of my dear
pupil.' I don't ask out of mere curi
osity; but you would oblige me by In
forming me If the young lady Meruit
has requested you to come bore on so
peculiar an errand?"
"The young lady? a bairn who kens
naethlng of the world."
"Hut, pardon me, had you her au
thority to dismiss me, or that of her
"The bairn's a balm, and the minis
ter's old and foolish. I've ta'cn the
business Into my own hands."
"Indeed!" exclaimed Cauesldlore, still
"Ay, Indeed!" repeated the lady, with
growing Irritation. "And I warn you,
once for a', to cease meddling with the
lassie. Ay, yo may smile! Hut you'll
smile, maybe, on tho wrong side of
your face, my friend, If yo dlnna tuk'
the warning I bring ye, and cease mo
lesting Marjorlo Annan."
It was clear that Caussldlere was
amused. Instead of smiling now, he
laughed outright, still most politely, but
with a self satisfaction wnlch was very
Irritating to his opponent. Subduing his
amusement with an clllort, h-j quietly
took a chair, and sat down opposite

staff upon the floor, "what's your an

"You must give me a little time, you

"A bonny teacher! A braw friend!

"I think," said Caussldlere, with a
mocking bow, "that your e03 aro very

"Your wife!" sho echoed, as If thun

you distrust me so? If you will per

"How daur yo think of It" cried Miss

"Much summer cooking may be done

"If asparagus Is ordered for today's din
ner, cook double quantity, and servo
that remaining for tomorrow's salad.
From a frlcasseo of chicken for dinner
the giblets may be served for giblct
stow for tho next day's luncheon. You
will thereby gain a dish without extra
cost. Potted fish, with cucumber sauce,
may be served ns a first courso In placo
of soup, but If tho latter Is preferred, a
quick soup may be mado by stirring
beof oxtract Into boiling water, nnd sea
soning It with celery seed and bay leaf.
Whero light meats aro to be served
somo of tho cream soups aro not out of
placo, as thoy contain nourishment eas
ily digested. Cream of potato, cream
of pea, tomato, celery, asparagus, rice,
squash, vheumber and lima bean soups
are all very acceptable In hot weather.
During the heated term tho roast Joint
might be served cold, nicely garnished
with edible greens. With It hot vege

may bo served occasionally In the placo
of meat egg plant atuffod with meat

"Previous to Judgo Williams' nil vent
on the scuue it has been fully hold by
all courts that the statutes of a stato
shall bear tho construction put upon
It by its own supremo court-, unless it
should bo In violation of tho constitu
tion, but as Judgo Williams did not
trou bio himself to como hi to tho con
fines of tho stato to mako tho order,
nor glvo nny notlco to tho attorney
general of his intention to do so, it Is
apparent that a llttlo thing like tho
statutes of a state or tho rulings of tho
supremo court will not hamper his in
fallibility lu tho dlfchargo of tho func
tions of his will. If tho federal judge
desires to nullify tho statutes of a
stato ho should at least get on tho
bench and perform his nuts In tho
public eye and not sneak on" to the re
cesses of the mountains; if ho desires
to nullify the laws ot a slate, ho
should at least serve notlco upon Its
officials and glvo thorn an opportunity
to bo heard. I notice that ho has
rushed into print with an unofficial In
terview dofondlng his course. I be
lieve that this Is tho first time in his
tory that a federal judgo has found it
iieccssnry to do this. If Judgo Will
iams would hold court In & court room
and try only those whom ho has sum
moned before him, ho wouldn't find it
necessary to rush into tho newspapers
'inil defend himself."
