sho was not recovering as quickly as
might bo desired; Indeed, her doctor

yet, she had now been nearly six weeks
without a lino from Dick Dick, who
had left her with tich fond words of

Dick, who know tint now, of all times,

Ksther was busy making a wonderful

pinned In several folds of lace and
tried several effects before she spoke
again. "Isn't It odd," she remarked at
last, "that Lord Aylmer has left his

"O'1'erhaps he never takes them out of

"Perhaps not. Anyway, It Is very

"Well, 1 shall go and get ready," and,

"Yts, madam; 1 have been there once

"It Is a fine place, Is It not?" Dorothy
"A very grand plr.ee, madam," said
Amelia, apparently giving all her at

"And Lady Aylmer what Is she
like?" Is sho nice handsome?"
"My lady Is very handsome, madam,"
said Amelia, putting the last vase In
its place, and coming to put a fold of

Dorothy sat In silence for a minute

Amelia Harris not unnaturally per

"Lord V Imer hns an heir, madam,"

leaving me to light

false to me not until you tell me so;
but If It Is so. you ought to tell me!"
She was sobbing passionately, and
the scalding tears ran down her poor,
pale face ami over her little cold hands.
They recalled her to herself. "No. I
will be brave, I won't doubt you. my
darling. There Is something I don't
understand. I will wait a little longer."
She unlinked a drawer in her ward

Dick which she had hidden out of Lord
Aylnier's way. "My love, my dear love,
I will trust you and believe .vou." she
murmured fondly. "I will not give way

She heard the carriage draw up with

Dorothy on her guard. Now, however,

CORONETS AT AUCTION.

then the article was no longer "prac

original owner, or possibly "an holr or
an assignee," had so llttlo use for It
that he had cut It In two and mounted
It as a pair of wall brackets. It Is
commonly supposed that peers' coro
nets, like royal diadems, are of gold.
That Is not so. They are or sliver,
"richly gilt," as In tho case of yester
day's bauble. This particular ono bore

that It may have been made for the
coronation of William IV. That them

After there was time for Hloker to
awkwardly sew a dozen eggs Into calico
bags and give them a good boiling,
there came a yell and a crash from the

him darning about on one foot, while
he was trying to get the other under

water that scalded htm was running
over the floor, nnd the varied colors of
the family calico were running with
It. There was not a whole egg In

Hloker hustled the children upstairs
that they might not hear what "pupa"
