The coachman , in his striped linen waistcoat ,

"To ride. "
"A hess quiet to rido. There's Mr. Bul

Frank did not like the sound of Mr. Bul
ger's cob. Herbert and Horace thought it
was just the thing.
"Well up to your -weight , sir , after Mr.
Bulger , " said William. "Such ft shoulder ,
such quarters , such a barrel ho'vo got , ht

"No , sir the cob. "
"Ah , yes the cob. But there nro barrel !

"Wall no. I don't think I should , an

always amused his cousin.
"Mr. Bulger won't do , William , " mid.
Prank. "Try elsewhere. "
William scratched his nose , and for a mln-
nto was in earnest thought.
"There's Captain Taylor's mare , " ho said ,
with a timid glance nt his masters. "Sho as

But they say she goes quiet enough with a

"Wo won't deprive Captain Taylor of his

"Will yon go to Barker's repository , sir ? "
asked William , who had couio to an end of
his oqulno researches.
"Whcro is it ? "
"In Blacklomi , " said Herbert. "Wo will

"No , thank you. I will make my own un

"Ho is supposed to bo so , " said Horace.
"He's as honest as boss-dealer. * is made , "
"Thou I'll trust my neck in Barker's bonds.
HI walk into Blucktowu nt once. "
Ho went indoors and put himself into town-
going trim. The biothcis sow him depart
with some misgivings , but as ho once inoro
declined the offer of their assistance , polite
ness i % otild not let them press it.
At the ledge gate ho found William wait
ing for him. "If I may inako so bold , sir ,
you say to Mr. Baikcr that I sent j'ou to him
William Giles , sir , Mr. Talbcrt's man.
Barker ain't so bad as some , sir ; and when
holcncms I shall have something to do with
the hess , may bo ho won't try and bast you. "
"Thank you , William , for your disinter
ested kludiicsj , " said Frank , gravely.
"Don't mention it , sir , " said William , with
politeness perhaps caught from his masters.
"William Giles , Mr. Talbcrt's man you'll
remember , sir ? "
"Certainly , William. Is there anything
else I ought to say to Mr. Barker ! "
'No ' , sir , not as I know of. "
"Shall I loll him you deserve flvo or ten
per cent , on the transaction ? "
William's face was a study. Ho looked at
Frank in a startled way , then glanced guiltily
round to sco that his masters were out of ear
shot. Then ho looked at Frank again , and ,
catching the humorous twinkle in his eye ,
"Oil , Mr. Cnrruthers , you know the inside
of the rop2S , you , do. If you ride as well as
you reckon up you might 'a bought Captain
Taylor's mare. Don't ' think Barker will toke
you in much , sir. "
"Perhaps not ; but I'd better make sure.
Fetch mo n nice clean straw , William. " Wil
liam obeyed without comment. His respect
for Mr. Carruthers had greatly increased.
Frank took the straw , and breaking off a
piece with the empty ear attached , stuck it
between his teeth. "Is that the rightlength ,
William ? " ho asked.
"Bit too long , sir ; but you'll havochowod
him down proper by the time you get to
"All right. " Frank passed out through the
goto and left William opining that ho "was
the rummest gent as over came to the house ;
oao never know if ho was in earnest or choff-
Frank soon got rid of the straw which ho
had mounted for William's mystification ,
and reached the repository without any signs
of borsincES about liini. Ho had nu inter

for the next hour stood matching horses

No doubt horse dealers nro aa honest na

and begged that it might bo looke.1 after for

Mr. Barker with that emphasis on the Lost
word which says that the vendoris proof
against the sumo number of pounds ,
"Look here , " said Fiauk , sharply , "you
find mo n horse for six weeks. I don't care if
it's black , brown , or blue. Name the lowest

mo and I buy it and don't find any pai ticular
vices I'll give you twenty per cent , more , and
the horse to icsell for mo nt the end of that
timo. Now then , is it the chestnut. ? "
Barker madoalong pause ; then , with an
assumption of candor , said : "Ko , sir , after
that it isn't the chestnut. Youcoino hero ;
I'll show you what it is. "
Mr. Caiiulheis never told any ono the
exact price his horse cost him , EO wo will not
force ourselves into his secrets. Ho loft the
repository , having settled that if n , \ ctoricary
surgeon's certificate could accompany the
dark bay horse just shown him it might be
sent to Hnzlowood House that nttcrnoon.
Then ho bade Mr. Barker good-day nud
strolled back to Oakbury.
Just befoio ho reached Hazlo\vood House he
was ovei taken by Beatrice and her cavalier.
They reined up and spoke a few words.
Young Purton was in high good 1 umor , and
"Pity you don't iideMr. Carruthers , " he
"It isn pity. Will you coach mo ? Ee-
Tengo is sweet , you know. "
"I'll bring my father's old horse round

said Fiauk gratefully. "Miss Clausoa , do
you think I could learn to ride ? "
"You nro too lazy , I fear. "
"Yes ; I suspect I am. I won't trouble
you , Purton. Qood-by. "
The horses trotted on , and Frank sauntered
back to Hazlowood House smiling placidly.

when they tat under the sycamore , and in the

Frank , watching every line of her beautiful
face , know that the diswrai which ho himself
had taken was becoming chronic and in
Altogether , it will be understood tlint if Mr.
Carruthers failed in curing Miss Clatiiou'a
complaint it would bo from no w ant of oppor
tunity , or from being doborred making an
exhaustive stud } * of the patient.
In plain EuglUh , Frank had fallen in love
with Beatrice , in that good old-fashioned way ,
almost at first sight. Ho had gene down be
fore her gray eyes as surely as had the sus
ceptible Sylvanus. Wouldho faro any better ?
About this date ho often asked himself the
above question ; for ho had by now mailo the
curate's acquaintance , and learned that ho
was a rejected man.
Ho did not leant it from Beatrice , who ,
like overj-truo woman , wished to hide , and ,
if possible , forget the story of a mall's dis
comfiture. Ho did not learn it from Hornco
or Herbert. Although they wcro as fond of
gossip as men always nro , wild horses would
not have rent such a confidence from their
kindly hearts. Sylvanus himself was Frank's
The energetic , bustling curate liad returned
to Oakbury. During ills absence the Talberts
had requested Beatrice to decide as to Iho
terms of intimacy w hich should for the f uturo
exist between Hazlowood House and Mr.
Mordlo. Beatrice quietly told her uncles
that it was her particular wish that the Rev.
Sylvanus should bo icccived on exactly the
same footing as heretofore. This decision
gave the Talberts great satisfaction. They
were umiblo to seo' how parochial affairs
could go on unless they worked liaud in hand
with the curate. Bo when Sylvautisreturned
ho was informed that ho might trit-yclo him
self up to Hnzlowood House as often as ho
chose. AVhich , as ho was resolved to caseharden
harden his heart by accustoming himself to
seeing Miss Clausen in the light of nothing
moro than a friend , was very often.
So Mr. Carruthers and the curate met fre
quently. They recognized each other's ' good
points , and were soon on terms of friendship
such as fiction , nt least , seldom allows to ex
ist between rivals. Rivals is perhaps the
wrong word , for , if any stray fragment of
hope clung to Mr. Mbrdlo's portmanteau and
so returned with bun to England , it was
swept away for over and over as soon as the
owner saw Frank and Beatrice together. Ho
recognized destiny , and bowed to it as a well-
bred man should.
It was no doubt the desire to prove incon-
tcstablyto himself that ho was cured , that
made him , in a moment of brisk confidence ,
tell Frank how ho hod fared. The manner i n
which the communication was made showoj
Frank that his own secret w as no secret from
Mordlo. If ho did not meet confidence by
confidence ho made no attempt at deception.
Ho looked at Mordlo w ith n curious tmilo.
' You scarcely expect mo to say I nra
sony ? " ho asked.
'No. "Want no sympathy. Only want
vou to bo sure that when the time comes to
congratulate you I can do so with all my
"Ahl" said Frank "
, smiling. "Noble
very noble , " \\nien \ the time comes , " ho added ,
softly. Thereupon ho fell into a train of
thought a train which ran upon a tingle
line and always took him .to ono particular
This , then , is how matters stood at the
beginning of October. Mr. Carruthers hav
ing completed lus diagnosis , not perhaps to
his entire satisfaction , felt that the moment
was drawing near when ho must make the
mprcmo effort to expel forever that morbid
ness which ho believed to have intrenched it-
Eclfin Miss Clausen's s/stem. Still liowas
bound to confess what many other practi
tioners ought to confess , that ho was w ork-
Ingiuthodaik. Ho was about to try a killer
or cure remedy , the desperate nature of
which would , strangely enough , act not
upon the patient but upon him who adminis
tered it. No wonder , with so little to guide
him , ho hesitated and postponed.
At this juncture the Talberts gave a din
ner-party a man's dinner party. The fol
lowing wcro the blessed recipients of invita
tions : LordKelstouwho was staying fora
few days at his place ; Sir John Williams , of
Almondsthorpo ; Colonel White , the officer
commanding the legiment at the neighbor
ing barracks ; Mr. Fallen , the polished Royal
Academician who was tojourning at the vil
lage inn , and malting outdoor sketches oi
autumnal foliage , nud Mr. Fletcher ; of the
Hollows , the largest landowner , tavo Lord
Kclstou , in Iho county. Those , with Frank
and the hosts , made a party of eight the
number which , according to an axiom of the
Talberts , should novcr bo exceeded.
From the above names and descriptions it
will bo rightly guessed that the party was
distinguished , well-selected and well-bal
anced. Selection and balance were matters
upon which the bi others prided themselves
as much If not moro than they did upon the
refinement of the dinner itself. In this par
ticular party , small as it was , culture ,
learning , art , arms ; , landed interest and
hereditary suay wcro pioperly personified.
It was , indeed , n representative gathering
after the Talberts' own hearts.
Buttwc days before it took place an event
happened which threatened it ill. Lord JCel-
stou wrote Horace ono of these pleasant ,
familiar letters which , coming from a lord ,
are always delightful. Ho said ho fchonld
toke the liberty of briugiug his friend Mr.
Simmons with liim. Aa this would raise the
number to nine it necessitated asking another
man in order to equalize the tides of the
Then come consultation high and earnest.
Whom could they ask upon so short a notice
worthy of forming ono of such a distinguished
party ? Each of the Talbcrts would have felt
insulted had ho been asked by a friend to stop
a gap ; so , following the golden rule they
shrank from the task before them. Htill ,
they could not have four on ono tldo of the
table nutl three on the other.
Frank listened to their solemn deliberations
for some time , then tiled to help them out of
the difficulty. "Leave mo out , " ho said.
"Beatrico and I" ho tpoko of her bomttlmea
now as Beatrice "will dlno together in the
nursery or the housckcci > er's room. Whit-
taker con bring the dishes sti eight from your
tablo. It will bo delightful. "
"MvdearFraukl'1 ' This joint exclamation
showed the utter futility of his suggestion.
" \Vhy \ not ask the i ector ? I thought it was
the duty of a country clergyman to meet
emergencies llko this. "
"Ho talks about nothing but hiaflihing , "
said Horace mournfully.
"Fishing for wliatl For men ? "
"No ; fcaluion and trout , " ausw cred Horace ,
OB usual taking the matter prosaically
"Why not Mordlef He is capital com *
pnny , "
'Ha-hum , " said Horace , glancing at Her
bert. "This ij scarcely a curate's imrty , "
"No " cold Herbert all
, scarcely , , sbakipjj
At last they decided to ask ft Mr. Turner ,
but the dtclslou was arrived at with ml glv-
inRs ; for Mr. Turner was in trade. Ho was ,
however , n merchant prince even ft mer
chant emperor and , as Hornco expressed it ,
was n member of Iho aristocracy of wealth.
They felt that Mr. Turner might IK ) risked at
short notice , anil would not lw offended
when ho heard it was to meet Lord Kclston.
This is one of the many advantages of enter
Nevertheless they wcro conscience stricken
at having asked nny ono to stop a gap , so
made amends by arranging their guests to
that Mr. Turner should sit on Herbert's left
hand ; Hoiaeo's supiwrtcra being Loid Kcl-
ston and his friend , Mr. Simmons. The latter
was a mnu of middle ago , with dark eyed and
exquisitely chiseled nquilluo features , and
wearing nn air of refinement that at once
commended him to Horace.
Tlio dinner began propitiously , and pro-
grcs od faultlessly. The tnblo , over the dec
oration of w hlch the brothers had spent much
time mid moro thought , was a perfect picture.
When their guests wcro only men the Tal
berts wcro extra particular. Tlio lack of the
refining clement , the presence of woman , had
to bo compensated by an 'Ultra fastidiousness
of detail , Even Frank , who had becu behind
the scenes , marveled nt the effect of his hosts'
hospitable and artistic exertions. But , all the
same , ho pitied them as wo should all pity n
host who is certain to bo rendered wretched
bja tureen of burnt soup or ft bottle ol
Horace talked gravely and pleasantly to
the right and totho.lcft. Herbert was com
pelled to attend almost entirely to Mr. Tur
ner , who had n booming voice , Thich ho in
sisted upon making heard. Frank , who was
next to the artist , found the dinner not so dull
as ho had feared it would bo.
In the course o conversation Horacolcanit
that Lei d Kclstou's friend w as Mr. Simmons ,
the noted barrister , who had so suddenly
sprung into eminence. Mr. Simmons was a
Jew of gentle birth and education , nudlloracc
was vcryf end of high-class Jews. So the two
men got on admirably. Frank also know
who Mr. Simmons was. Herbert did not.
All went on as well ai the Talbcrts could
have wished until the clnrct was placed on
the table. Then nn awful thing occurred a
contretemps , which to this day is n sere sub
ject with Horace and Herbert. It all arose
from inviting the stor gap. Listen.
