It waa a very happy evening that
Beryl spent at Uplands. Mrs. Dyna-
vor's heart went out to the pretty ,
graceful girl , who seemed so stiangs-
ly alone In the world ; Kitty had taken
a fancy to her ; and when Harold came
in for tea the three were as much at
homo as though they had known each
other for months.
"You must let me take you home , "
Harold said to the little govern ss ,
when she came downstairs about eight
with her hat on.
"Oh , I could not trouble you , Mr.
Dynevor , It is so far ! And I am not
at all afraid. "
"Harold loves an evening tramp , and
It Is much too far for you to go alone , "
Bald Kitty. "Mind you come again
soon. Mother wants you to , don't you
mother ? "
"Yes , " put in Mrs. Dynevor. "I slnll
be very pleased to see Miss London
whenver she has time to come. "
When they were walking down the
broad , shady lane which led from Up
lands to Easthill village Harold asked
simply. "Do you know you have mad 3
a conquest of my mother , Miss L n-
don ? I never saw her so much taken
with a stranger. "
"She was very , very kind to me. Oh
Mr. Dynevor , when I saw her and
Kitty together I could not help wishIng -
Ing I had a mother. "
The voice was so sad it touched his
"I wish you would confide your trou
bles to ray mother , Miss Lsndon , " ha
said gently , "she would know haw to
comfort you. The advertisement of
fering the reward has not- been re
peated for some weeks now , and I had
toped you would feel happier. "
To his surprise and alarm , he heard
her sob. They were quite alone in a
little frequented lane. He longed to
comfort her , only he could think of no

ly , "like you , I have known troubles
one presses on me now whose weight
seems to crush me to the earth. Hu
man friends can do very little to
soothe an aching heart ; but there is
One above who knows all His chil
dren's griefs , and sorrows for thatn.
He will comfort you better than any
earthly friend. "
. "I know , " she said , simply yet re
verently. "Mr. Dynevor , I had better
tell you the truth. I can trust you not
to betray me to my father , and I cin-
not bear to come to Uplands and take
kindness from you all when , if you
knew my story , you would shrink from
me in loathing. "
An awful fear crossed Harold's heart.
What could she mean ? Only a little
while.ago , at the fete , she had assu-ed
him she was not fleeing from jus ic ? ,
and he had retorted no one could taka
her for a criminal. What did her
present words mean ?
"Whatever you tell me I will keep
as a sacred trust , " he answered. "But ,
indeed , Miss Lendon , you are mis
taken ; nothing you can say will make
me shrink from you. "
"But I am the child of the two who
wronged you cruelly. I am your
enemy's daughter Beryl Lindon. "
He started involuntarily. Really
the movement was simply surprise , but
she thought it was due to aversion.
"I never meant to deceive you or
any one , " she went on. her voice grow
ing a little firmer as she proceeded. " 1
ran away from home because my fa
ther wrote that he had married again ,
and his new wife was to have full au
thority over me. Mr. Dynevor , that
woman had lived in the house for nine
months , openly as my maid , really as
my tyrant Last January , while my
lather was away , she she struck m3.
I appealed to the housekeeper , who
dismissed her. Do you think I could
have stayed to see that woman in my
mothers' place ? "
"No one could have wished it , " h ?
answered quickly "no one who loved

urged it was a slight to their employ
er , Mr. Linden , that a poor little gov
erness should be called by his name.
When I found that this Mr. Linden
lived in Elchester square , and his
name was Eustace , I knew it was my
father , and I was only too thankful
to agree to the proposal that I should
change one letter of my name , and be
known here as Miss Lendon.
"When later I heard my father's
story from Mrs. Grey , and the cruel
wrong he had wrought you and yours ,
I felt overwhelmed with shame.
Though your sister had urged me to gi
and see her , I felt I dared not accept
her Invitation. I should never have
come to the Uplands only she fetched
me , and all through my visit I felt as
though I were deceiving you all , that
if you knew the truth your doors woulu
"be closed against me. "
Harold took the girl's hand in his
and held it close under cover of the

death bed told me he believed firmiy
that my Aunt Nina had never meant
to wrong us. He thought either the
will had been extorted from her by
undue influence , or "
"Or what ? " asked Beryl eagerly.
"Oh that she was too 111 to under
stand Its real parpo.t. I suppose you
do not remember ner ? No , you coa.d
not ; she died before you were four
years old. "
"I do remember her , " said Beryl ,
in a very low voice. "You see , she
was the only cieauire who loved me ,
so I was not like.y to fo.get. She was
very ill , and very unhappy ; but , Mr.
Dynevor , I can't Leiieve s > ue d.d what
people think. She was too gentle. "
"It was not a happy marriage , " said
Harold Dynevor , in a low tone ; "from
the little we know we always gathered
that. My father wondered sometimes
if she lost heart after your slater's

she kissed me , and said she would
never part with me again while she
lived. My benne went home , and af

"And you are Beryl Linden ? "
"Yes. Will you tell your mother
and Kitty ? I am sure they won't be

"I am sure of that , too ; but I do
not mean to tell them. I do not see
that what you have confided to me

treated you no better than he has
treated us. I am positive if my mother

He found his mother alone when he
got home again. She had been search
ing among old treasures , and had un
earthed an album containing photos
of bygone days. It was open at the
picture of Mrs. Frnk Dynevor as she
was when she came home a bride.
"I wanted to show it to you , Har
old , " said his mother , "just to prove
the resemblance is not all my fancy. "
He looked at it thoughtfully.
"It is a very strong likeness , " he
said gravely ; "but I hope it won't
prejudice you and Kitty against that
poor little girl. I think if ever a hu
man creature Stood in sore need of
friends it Is Mrs. Tanner's governess. "
Five thousand pounds.
The sum seemed to burn itself into
Harold Dynevor's brain as the sum
mer ripened. He did not actually
know that Mr. Linden mean to fore
close , but he could not doubt Mr.
Proctor's warning. He felt that If five
tnousand pounds were not forthcom
ing before the 25th of December his
mother must leave her lifelong home ,
and he himself go forth into the world
a ruined man.
He had more than one long confer
ence with the lawyer about raising the
money. Mr. Proctor thought a private
lender would be the only source
whence he could obtain it. He said
that at a forced sa.e the Uplands
would fetch very little in excess of
the actual sum needed ; but he thought
any one who knew the property might
be inclined to offer six thousand for
it , on the understanding it was to be
redeemed. The one thousand could be
paid back at once , the other five re
main at interest
"Only so very few people have cap
ital to dispose of , " he concluded , "and
those few seem to fight clear of land.
I am making inquiries among all like
ly investors. Don't you think General
Craven would consider the specula
tion ? "
"He can't His daughter is to be
married in the autumn , and he'll want
all the ready money he can find. "
The general , indeed , when sounded
on the subject , took what seemed to
Mr. Proctor a very hard view.
"You know , Proctor , " the old sol
dier declared , "I've no liking for Eus
tace Linden , and I'd not mind thwart
ing him ; but I think for any one to
enable the Dynevors to remain at Up
lands would be to do them a cruel
kindness. It is openly reported Linden
don is coming into residence when
we leave. It will be far and away bet
ter for Mrs. Dynevor and her children
not to live , so to say , at his gates. I
think it is a blessing in disguise that
they will have to go. "
"And I don't ! " said the lawyer
stoutly. "Think of the years the place
has been in Mrs. Dynevor's family !
Think how hard her son has worked
to keep it up ! If he leaves Uplands ,
Harold goes out Into the world penni
"He'd be sure to get a good berth
as land-agent to a nobleman. "
"Such posts are not so easily picked
up. I think you take a very unsym-
pathetic view of the matter , General. "
'Bother It all , " said "the old soldier
Irritably , "I suppose I had better tell
you the truth ! I like the Dynevors ,
they're the pleasantest neighbors I
ever had , I think Harold's a son to
be proud of ; but , Proctor , I've got
only ouo boy , and I haven't much
money to leave him. Alick will have
to make his way with very little ex
cept his pay. Can't you see I don't
want him to marry Kitty Dynevor , a
nice girl and a good one , but without
a penny to her fortune ? "
Beryl saw a good deal of the Dyn
evors in August. Woodlands broke up
for the holidays , Mrs. Tanner and the
twins went to spend a fortnight near
their old home , and Kitty came over
to Easthill-on-Sea , with her mother's
orders to bring back Beryl for the
time of their absence.
"You are to be sure to come unless
you have a better engagement"
"I have no engagement , and I
coi'ldn't have a better one ; only shall
I not be in your way ? "
"We want you , and we mean to
have you ! " retorted Kitty. "I to'd

a famous idea. I think you fascinated
him that night when he saw you
looking so forlorn at the railway sta

have had to stay in the house for
Ms. Dynevor's welcome was almost
motherly in its goodness , but It was
Harold's greeting which went straight
to Beryl's heart. She happened to be
alone in the oak parlor when he came
in , and as he took her hand he said
"Remember , no one here knows your
secret no one ever will know it from
me ; but if they learn it from another
source they will be content , as I do ,
to remember you are Aunt Nina's
child , and forget you are Mr. Lindon's
Beryl had been at Uplands just three
days when Easthill was thrown into
a commotion. Mr. Linden , the great
man of the. neighborhood , had arrived
and was putting up at his agent's
house while he transacted some busi
ness connected wjth his property.
"Will he have the effrontery to call
here ? " Mrs. Dynevor asked her son.
"I should say not. If he does , send
Kitty in to interview him. She is cap
able of freezing him if she tries. "
"I wonder if he has brought his wife
and daughter ? " hazarded Mrs. Dyne
"No. " retorted Kitty , who always
knew everything. "His wife is not
well , and his daughter is at school.
Perhaps she prefers it to her step
mother's society , but she is the same
age as I am , and I should certainly
resent being kept at letters. "
"Poor little thing ! " said Mrs. Dyn
ever gently. "I wonder If she is like
her mother ? What is her name ? Did
we ever hear ? "
"It was never mentioned in Aunt
Nina's letters , " returned Harold. "She
always spoke of the children as 'Pet'
and 'Baby ; ' not that she wrote often ,
poor thing ! "
Beryl was in the room , and natur
ally heard these remarks. She almost
forgot herself , and contradicted his
last words , for she knew that Lillian
had never been called "Pet. " It was
her own name in babyhood , and had
not besn given up till she went to
the Burgesses , when , by her father's
wish , she was always called Beryl.
No , Lillian could not have been
"Pet. " Try as she would , the girl
could not recall any fond abbreviation
of her sister's name. When she was
brought home after Lillian's death no
one ever spoke of the dead child ex
cept her mother , and she always said
"your little sister. " Mr. Linden took
no notice of Beryl at all. Her moth
er's maid had returned to England ,
as she had lately heard , to take serv
ice with the family at Uplands. Lil
lian's nurse had also left the Lindens -
dons , but of her movements Beryl

NEW BREAD AT PARIS.
From Fresh. Flour and Greatly In
Among all the exhibits of bread and
bread-making at the Paris exhibition
the one which interested me most was
a system of milling and baking com
bined. It is well known that all food
substances when ground to a fine pow
der have a tendency to become oxi
dized. As is the case with coffee , wnich
is the best when freshly roasted and
freshly ground , so it is with cereal
flour , which is never so aromatic erse
so nutritious as at the moment when
it is first made. The Schweitzer sys
tem , in regard to the milling orpera-
tijns,1 is a return to the old system o"
millstones , with the exception that cor
rugated steel grinders take the place
of the millstones of the olden days ,
says the Paris Messenger. These
grinders are so accurately adjusted as
to admit of the making of the finest
flour , while avoiding actual contact of
the two grinding surfaces. The sim
plicity of the apparatus , the cheapness
and the ease with which it can be in
stalled commend this system particu
larly for domestic use and for the supply -
ply of villages and small communities.
Nevertheless , it is capable of being op
erated on an extensive scale , as is
demonstrated by the large establish
ment at La Villette , Paris , where.more
than 100,000 pounds of bread are made
per day from flour not more than 24
dours old. Chemical analysis shows
ihat the flour made according to the
Schweitzer system has more than
Lwice as much phosphate material as
that made by the ordinary roller proc
ess. The importance of this fact in
respect to nutrition should not be lost
sight of , and we must admit that nu
trition , not whiteness of color , is the
principal object of bread-making.
House Parses the Measure for Reimburse

CLAIMS THAT AGGREGATE $344,480
Moat of Them for Stores and Supplies
Tukvn by the Union Army .During the
Rebellion Opposition Overcome
Otbrr Washington Mutters.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 2.The house
today passed an omnibus bill carrying
clianis for stores and supplies taken
by the uniou army during the rebel
lion. The claims were passed on by
the court of claims and aggregated
$344,480. Practically all the benefic
iaries reside in the south. Considerable
opposition to the bill was displayed
in the day under the leadership of
Mr. Cannon , the chairman of the ap
propriation committee , but it flattened
out later and the bill finally was
passed without division.
Mr. Southard of Ohio , chairman of
the committee on coinage weights and
measures , asked unanimous consent to
consider a bill to establish a national
standardizing bureau , which should
have custody of the standards and
furnish information to any education
al institution , firm , corporation or
individual in the United States.
After some discusion it was agreed
that the bills should bo mrute a con
tinuing order after the disposal of tho'
bill to promote the elficicncy of the
revenue cutter service. 'lhe senate
bill to appropriate $30,000 for the pur
chase or construction of a revenue
cutter for Boston harbor was passed.
A bill to regulate the coming of
Chinebe persons ir.to the country cre
ated some discussion. Mr. Hitt , chair
man of the commitleo on foreign af
fairs , said the bill had been prepared
by the attorney geneial to prevent the
fraudulent entry of Chinese laborers ,
by giving the government , as well as
the Chinamen , the right to appeal
from the dei-ision of the United States
commissioner. Mr Hitt said that he
himself d'd not tnslieve the Chinese
exclusion act was a j-ist law. because
it was passen in violation of treat.es ,
but the la v was on the statute books
and it was the duty of every citizen
to uphold it. The bill was passed.
Tnis being private bill day , Mr. Ma-
hon of Pennsylvania chairman of the
committee on war claims , called up
the unfinished business , which was a
bill for the relief of St. John's lodge
of Masons of Newbern , N. C. The bill
appropriates $6,000 for the use of the
Masonic lodge by union troops during
ihe rebellion. After some opposition
U was parsed.
The house then took up the omnibus
bill for the payment of claims aggre
gating $344,400 , certified to be due by
the court of claims under the provi
sions of the Bowman act. The c'aims
