( Continued. ) He casts one quick look at Barbara's bent head and sees the tears dropping through her fingers.noticing her shoul ders heaving with these sobs that will not be controlled. She is cut up at leaving Bouveric. thinks Sebastian , who just touches hir bent , dusky head with his fingers. "Come out into the garden , Barbara ; the servants are coming into the room to take away the things. Come. " His voice is kind.and Barbara.yearn- ing for sympathy , goes. "So you are going to be transport ed , " Sebastian says , as she walks meekly at his side down a garden path bordered by thousands of mauve and white crocuses. "Sebastian , you know it is not non sense ! " Barbara says , tragically. "Father says nothing , and your moth er says play at being engaged if you like ; but it is true quite true. And father need not take me to Tasmania , for it will not make any difference ! " speaking vehemently in her excite ment. Sebastian stoops his dark head. "You don't expect me to side with Bouverie ? Barbara , you do not think 1 could do that ? " "You would if you were generous enough , " breathes Barbara , her wet eyes seeing the crocus border blurred like a rain-bow mist. "Sebastian , you are my cousin , and I haven't a friend in the world ! " The man's dark face is inscrutable. "I wouldn't give my faith to George Bouverie if I were you , " he says slow ly. "Barbara , I cannot be a hypocrite. I love you , but you shall not trade on my affection to help you to marry another man ; for if I can help it you shall be no man's wife but mine. " The tears that had been welling up in Barbara's eyes are checked sudden ly ; a look of resolution comes over her troubled face. "I will tell father everything , and he will understand , " she says , almost hopefully. "After all , I think I am glad I am going ; and it cannot make any real difference we can wait. " "Yes , I dare say you will have plen ty of waiting , " Sebastian says , with cunning familiarity and an evil smile. Barbara gives him one look from her tear-filled eyes a look of anger and reproach and without a word leaves him and walks back to the house. Mrs. Saville does not think it neces sary to inform Barbara that in the autumn Sebastian is to follow her across the sea. She pins great faith on distance and change of scene. In all human probability the silly love affair between Barbara and George Bouverie will die a natural death , and very few people marry their first lovers. Sebastian will have a very good chance when he goes out to Tasmania , and the honeymoon can be the return journey. It is really a charming ar rangement. Mrs. Saville feels quite pleased , and it is a great blessing that Barbara is taking it all so quietly. By and by she comes into the morn ing room , where Mrs. Saville is writ ing lists and letters at a great rate. Barbara has on a pale gray coat and skirt , with a white silk waist and a great bunch of violets in her button hole. She looks pale , but the grave mouth is firm. "I am going to Portraven , Aunt Ju lia. I am going to meet George to say Good-by to him , " she says , with an air d decision , as if opposition were to be expected. But Mrs. Saville makes no objection. A parting scene between the lovers is inevitable , and the sooner it is over the better. Still Barbara lingers. "Aunt Julia , I know quite well why father has sent for me. It is to try and make me forget George ; but it will be no use. We are promised to each other. I cannot help it I can never care for anyone else. " Her aunt looks at her , sees the ris ing agitation , and smiles. "My dear Barbara , I have never at tempted to dissuade you from engag ing yourself to Mr. Bouverie if you choose , neither can I prevent you meeting him in Portraven and saying good-by. You are old enough to know your own mind. I do not for one moment suppose your father will re gard an engagement of that sort as serious in fact , I know he will not. You see , dear , I am quite candid , and I foresee that some day you will be very glad to have escaped matrimony with a very worthless young man. " "He is not worthless. " Barbara looks splendid in her in dignation as she nobly champions her lover. Then she leaves the room.and walks away down the gloomy , damp avenue , and out on the road beneath the budding trees. Her step is light , and her dark-lashed eyes are full of hope. Xot very far from the Court en trance gates a young man , with a cou ple of dogs at his heels , is sauntering along. George Bouverie looks , if pos sible , more anxious and unhappy than ever. His face hardly brightens as Barbara joins him , looking fresh as the spring morning herself. For a second she looks up at him , and her heart swells as she realizes that it will be a long , long time per haps before they meet again. "She will yearn for the touch of a vanished hand , " she will long with a sick long ing for the sound of his merry voice , the sight of his face. "George , " she whispers and her voice is trembling "my father has cent for me , and I am going to Tas mania. " "Going to Tasmania ? " In the face of his other hideous trou ble , he hardly takes it in , and echoes her words mechanically. "Yes , " Barbara says , almost in her usual tones , "I am to sail imraedi- dately , and we have got to say gocd- by. " Still George stares at her with his heavy eyes , that look as if they had long been strangers to sleep , and he seems as if he could not find anything to say. But at last words come. "My darling , my darling , it is bet ter for you to go away , after all. " He is white as chalk as he gazes down at her ; but Barbara is quite him , and he is dimly conscious of a smile that is quivering and dancing in her eyes. "George , I have something to say to you , " Barbara says , and clasps both her hands upon his arm. "Come. " They walk down the road together. It is their last interview. How shall they crowd in all the vows and prom ises the promises that are made when young hearts seem breaking ? It is over at last the girl's face very tear-stained , and the man's pale with feeling. "You have promised me , " she is say ing. "Swear it , George you will never bet on a race again , for my sake , for my sake ! " "God helping me , I never will ! " he says solemnly , his golden head bent over hers. CHAPTER V. When Barbara returns to the Court , with pale cheeks and without her bunch of violets , that repose in George Bouverie's pocketbook as a farewell souvenir , it is to find a scene of con fusion and a group in the hall , con sisting of the servants ; and they are surrounding a central figure , which turns out to bo Mrs. Saville lying on the floor. A loose stair-rod has precipitated her down the stairs.with the result of a broken ankle. The accident effectually puts a stop to the trip to London. When with the aid of the coachman , Sebastian , and the cook she has been conveyed up stairs , she turns to Barbara with a moan. "I shall be tied here for weeks ! I am suffering horribly ! You must go to London with Sebastian. " "Don't worry about me , Aunt Julia , " Barbara says , pitying the pain that is shown in the twitching face. "I can travel alone. " "Nonsense ! As if Sebastian would allow such a thing ! You can go straight to your Uncle Henry's , and Sebastian will see you safely on board. My foot is fearfully painful ! I hope the doctor has been sent for. " "Yes. Sebastian rode off for him at once. " "Then you may go down stairs ami send Mason to me. What a figure you look , Barbara ! 1 suppose you have been having a scene with that young Bouverie ? " Barbara says nothing. Her aunt is in pain , and pain makes most people irritable ; so she leaves the room , and prepares to continue her own pack ing , folding away her possessions with a strange sense of unreality , wonder ing idly what manner of life she will be living when her gowns see the light of day again. It is all over at last ! The lovers manage a last farewell , and then Bar bara is gone , whirled away on the first part of the long voyage , to begin a life that to her will only be a time of probation till George Bouverie shall come and claim her. Within a week Sebastian is home again , having seen Barbara safely on board and started for Tasmania. "She is a most extraordinary girl , " he says , sitting by his mother's bed side , and giving her a report of his proceedings. "Just fancy ! She would not buy a single thing for the voyage except a deck chair , a rug and some lavender water ; and she insisted on traveling second class , though her father's friends were going first , and seemed greatly annoyed. They will , through Barbara's obstinacy , be un able to be of the slightest use to her during the voyage. " "What can she mean ? " ejaculates Mrs. Saville , looking very grim and grey as she reclines on her pillows. Sebastian shrugs his shoulders. "Who can assign any reason for the vagaries of a woman's mind ? That fool Bouverie came to the railway sta tion , and they stared into each other's eyes like a couple of lunatics. I thought Barbara was going to have hysterics. Well , she has seen the last of him. If rumor is right , he has about come to the end of his tether. He looks bad. enough , and it strikes me his * expres sion spells ruin more than grief at los ing a 'sweetheart. ' " "It is a good thing Barbara has gone , " Mrs. Saville remarks. "By the time you go out to Tasmania she will have forgotten Bouverie and be very glad to see you. " "I hope so , " says Sebastian drily , "considering is to have all the accumulated savings of her father and her mother's fortune as well. " Then his face changes suddenly. "And if she hadn't a penny I should marry her all the same. She is the only woman I ever wanted for my wife" rising and leaving the room. And while the great steamer con taining Barabra in her second-class quarters ploughs her way through the grey billows , George Bouverie once more looks out into the world , with hope shining in his eyes and a look of relief on his handsome face. Today , that before sunset is to be a day of tragedy , is as other days with the scent of coming spring in the air. Mrs. Bouverie has been moved to the sofa , and lies like a fragile lily , with her white hair and meek , quiet eyes. George is beside her , and her deli cate , blue-veined hands are lying in his broad , sunburnt palm. They have had a long talk , mother and son one of those rare talks that have brought heart very near to heart. The moth er's lips are tremulous , her eyes tear ful. They have been talking about Barbara , and if the young man has given his all to the woman he hopes to makes his wife , there is no jealousy in the heart that has loved him since the moment he was born. "You don't know what she is , mother , " he is saying. "I cannot tell you all , but she is an angel. I don't think there is any one like her. Bar bara has saved me , " he whispers very low , his sunny head bent. " 1 am go ing to be a good man , mother , for her sake , to fit myself to be her husband ; and , God helping me , she will never have cause to blush for me again. " For a moment it seems to Mrs. Bouverie that there is bitterness in the thought of the easy victory won by a girl's love , the promises made that all her prayers and tears could not gain ; but it is only for a moment. The mother-love crushes down every un generous thought , and it is a very ten der , smiling face that lifted from the silk-frilled pillows. "My boy , my sou , you have made me very happy. " George stoops and kisses her. "Some day you will know how Bar bara has saved me. Mother dear , I must not tire and worry you when you arc so weak. I am going to turn over a new leaf and take to farming. Oh , you don't know all I am going to do ! " laughing as he speaks , a laugh that is a little tremulous because be feels like one who has been reprieved. George goes off to Portraven , still with that tremulous joy and relief in his heart , and feels very humble and thankful. George goes to the bank , cashes a small cheque a cheque that now he feels ashamed of because the money has been won from a bookmaker. However , it is the last time , he says to himself , pocketing the gold and leav ing the bank. As he runs down the steps he comes face to face with Se bastian Saville. The two men nod to each other in the manner of those who foster a mutual dislike. Afterwards they meet at the post- office , where George is dispatching a telegram. In fact , he is transmitting the sum of one hundred pounds through the postoffice by telegram. A little pile of yellow gold is handed in the office window. Sebastian stares , and George turns first crimson , then white , and his hands shake. He feels the eyes of Sebastian Saville on him , and his confusion increases. Again the two men exchange hostile glances. George finishes his business and swings out of the postofilce. Mr. Saville buys some postage stamps , and goes out into the sunny street again. ( To be continued. ) V/HEN A WOMAN WILLS. Daring Deed of a Washington Dame with Social Aspirations. People who go about and in society tell me that when a woman ardently desires to make herself one of. the fa vored few of the smart set , there is really nothing she will stop at. and some of these same persons have been telling me this story in Mustration of what they say. In high officialdom , says a writer in the Washington Post , is a little lady , dainty as a spring crocus , who was a member of the in ner circle long before she became a part of officialdom. On one of her last reception days she was chatting with two cabinet women , when the servant announced the arrival of a woman who is struggling to get into things as never a social climber strug gled before. The hostess knew her by sight merely , and had never so much as had a bowing acquaintance with her , but official people are used to ? eehig stran&eis at ther receptions , and the lady of the house bowed with her usual graciousness. Th climber's quick eye took in the situation. She ? w the two r-ibinet women , and she kncw they say her. She rcvO to the occasion in masterly fashion. "My dear Mrs. Blank. " she said gushingly , clasping the hostess' hand warmly , "I was o sorry not 10 have letn at home wher you called on Friday. It was o sweet of yo.i i-j tome so soon , an-1 I do liope yu il ro-ne in vcrv often , in formally , that way. " And before the hostess had rco/vered irui. her sur prise the cliraber has passed on , well content , for she had appeared in the presence of two cabinet women as the intimate friend of a lady who had never even set foot on ber doorsteps. A lazy man's burdens are heaviest on his mind ; put your interest in your work and your work will soon be to your interest Soporific. Philadelphia Press : "It's strange how nature equalizes all things , " said the philosopher. "I mean to say that nothing is lost in nature. What may be lacking here is given twofold there. " "Ah ! " remarked the novelist. "How about the loss of sleep ? " "Just the point I was going to make. Now , the sleep you lose over the writing of a novel is very fre quently gained by those who attempt it.
