the worde the rector'a wife looked up with
a quaintly qulzslcal expresalon en her face.
"Perhaps tbe Doctor's Johnny baa revela

only, "these little habits of band holding

noticed." - -
' "No, madam," said John, with that great
calmnesa. which he could alwaya command
when apeaklog of bis nominal finance,
"Veronica and I are such good frlenda that
there is only one thing in tbe world about
which we agree."
"I am lntereated tell me!" said bla
hostess, her eyes brightening. 1
That la, that neither one of us shall
ever be persuaded to marry the other."
"But the long-standing engagement?'
suggested the rector'a wife, who had her
own reasons for being curloua In the mat
"Our several parents made that. It
k an affair for them," aaid John. "Vera
and I, for our part, are unanimously - of
the contrary opinion."
"Ah! -1 wonder T" murmured Mrs. Henry
Colatoun, meditatively, ,
At tbe eloae of 'this almple feast John
and the rector sat awhile talking. The
young man was alwaya at his best In bla
eld dominie's company. The' Arm, gentle,
conscientious "rlghtness" of his every word
and action were for the time being reflected
tn the pupil. Presently, however, Mr.
Colstoun announced that he must betake

hs would stay and say goodby to tbe rec

A alight noise at the door attracted the
young man's attention, as he aat idly
looking out at the playground and watch
ing the hurrying spate of boya.
From the outer dark of the paasage
tear-stained face peeped for a moment
within the dining room. ' John recognized
bis tormentor. It was Johnny penitent
Johnny a hungry Johnny. For the order
of the master ef tbe house bad been strict
and Johnny had not yet seen his mother.
"I sowwy," said Johnny, "vewwyt la all
ee fings tlearad away?"
"I am afraid ao," ss'd John smiling.
Then he added, "Bee here, you little ras
cal, why did you tell such a story about
about your teacher?"
" 'Twaen't atowwy, nuther there!" aaid
"Look here." said John, "teatser wouldn't

Johnny pretended not to understand,
falling back instead on actualities, upon
which he felt himself . more competent to

patting his blouse to show how slack It
was at the part chiefly affected by hunger
"Then you won't eay it again, will you,
Johnny? And I'll ask fatber to forgive
Johnny looked out at the window with
a Str of great detachment and disinter
t stednees, polishing tbe toe of one boot with
the sole of the other la a circular manner.

set of remarkably dirty and tear-furrowed
Defers, which closed ever the myaterious
gift like ao many elaws.
"Fank oo." said Johnny. Nver will tell
' ao more sat you"
"Get out. you young ruffian!" cried John
tearing the retsralng footsteps of hla
hostess on the paaaage.

' Caasslraers. v
In order to pass awsy the afternoon till
such time as little Mistress Falrlle ahould
be released from ethool. John Qiendonwya
betook himself to solitary meditation upon
the wooded shores of ths Witch loch.

lees than a mile from the towa Of Kllgour,
but ea the opposite side of the river from
David Oleadeoalag's Flowercot and his
ewa paternal towers of Castle Oower.
John had ao anxiety about his father and
he knew that bis father would have none
about him. Ee long. Indeed, aa he kept
decently out of Mr. Olendonwyn'e reach aad
the eld man could learn from Orlerson tha
hia younger son was la ae superlative mla
chief, no questions were ssked at Castle
Oower as to his outgoings or Ineomings.
Besides which John had alwaya stood well
with the servants, who were generally In
dignant at the neglect and partiality of hia
Aa to bis brother, John did not know by
what method he had rehabilitated himself
with hia father, but to all appearance the
reconciliation bad been effected and waa
complete. For during every forenoon and
often during tbe evenings, also, Rupert
Olendonwyn and his father could be seen
pacing the terrace together deep In confi
dential converse. If John happened to pass
them Rupert nodded pleasantly. Hla father
"WHO IS THE LITTLE GRUB
did nothing. He would bsvs tsken more
notice of a rabbit.
Aa for Rupert, he cast desperately about
In bis mind for sny pretext by which he
might escape from the intolerable dullness
and surveillance of Castle Oower.
Lying awake at nights he could bear
hushed footsteps moving to and fro out
aide hla bedroom, and once hla father en
tered hla chamber after midnight with a
deed In his band which be professed him
self unable to read.
"Tbe old fox," growled Rupert to tbe
brother tn whom for seme Inscrutable reason
he bad begun to confide, "does he think I
don't see that he only wanted to find out
It I were drinking on the ely?" .
Now, John Olendonwyn, pacing by tha
wan gleam of tbe water, and looking acrosa
at the purple woodlands opposite swimming
In ths silver base of an early winter sunset,
carried not the least atom of Jealousy in
bla bosom. Like a scarlet pomegranate
flower aet in the dead bosom of a nun's
robe, the hope end lovs of little Falrlle
Olcndennlng kindled and warmed the gray
monotony of the young man's life.
He thought of her, working cheerfully
and gratefully st her tasks la the crowded
school room, snd hs said, "Thank Ood, I
can give ber aomethlng better than that, at
But through the tingling warmth of these
thoughts of Falrlle, there would Intrude
most unwelcomely the rebukes of Veronica
Caesar, and in addition certain obstinate
questionings provoked by the lad'a Inter
view with his old hesd master.
Was It true that after all ths ministry
waa not a profession, but a vocation 7
Ought those who were unfitted for It never
to enter It. and those who might discover
their unwortbloess to lesve It ss soon ss
they did so? What a disruption that would
make! John had done bis work la tbe tbeo
logical claaaee as faithfully ss hs might,
but he had seen no need to study his btwe
or consider whether or not bs had any
thing to teach men when he ahould be
placed ia spiritual authority Aver them.
That fatal Scotch familiarity with tbe
bible aa a lesson book which John Olen
donwyn bad obtained at actaool. prevented
him from ever opening It sfter hs bad left.
Young men do not read their eld school
books. , .
till the heart of the youth waa clean
willing, teachable, and the time ef harden'
Ing was not yet. He respected his rector
aa he respected no other men. Again and
again be thought of Mr. Colstoun'a propb
ecy that time of cleaving and trying would
surely come, and that early. How would
he, John Oledoawyn, atand In that day?
And through the growing dusk et the
winter's eve he saw ths clear, deep-plere
Ing eyea of Veronica Caesar searching Into
his soul. They seemed to make blm
wiuc. Jubu drew a loog breath, looked
at hla watch, and turned back toward tbe
town. . Tbe thought of little Falrlle draw
Ing together ths threads of her day's work
was Ilka the glowing of a household hearth
te the lonely boy. He felt Instinctively
that she would never trouble bim with
questionings about creeds and catechisms,
or drive him te the bayonet's point te du
tlea aad life miasioae.
Bp lie of the most weather-beaten prov
erbs, be yet expected the course of true
love to run smooth, even aa the prospects
of his life were set down on legal parch

man held himself free to choose and to
love whomao he would. He bad done both,
and now he waa en his wsy to tbe bridge

bla heart'e chosen, must paas on ber way
Yes, the Infant department waa coming
out at last all Important event. Urchins
fell over each other trying to elide along
tbe gutters and negotiate the patcbea of

band in hand, alnglng aa they came tbe
words of their evensong:
The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want.
He miikea me down tn ll
In-pastures green, he leadeth me
ine quiet watera by.
The young vivid lives scattered this wsy
and that Tbey had been and were lot.
Various doors gleamed for s moment ss
the ".relighted homes took them In.
Ths long dull street begsn to glimmer
at Its furthest end. Yonder waa David Mc
George, the lamplighter, running with an
old-fashioned fuse over his shoulder slong
with his ladder. The frost hsse began te
trake a little Iridescent hslo sbout esch
dim oil lamp, a fact which John Olendon
wyn had only time to observe, when sud
denly all hla Ideas and observlnga flew this
way and that aa utterly routed as If a
shell had exploded In an ante' neat. So faat
fled these wise thoughts, thess accurate
memoranda makinga at the appearance of
a certain alender little black figure on the
scarce tarniabed whltenesa of the snow.
But the next moment John was stamping
hla foot. Confuaton ten confusions! Thero
were two black dote. But as ths dots en
Urged, they proved to be very Mule 'after
Nevertheless, John Olendonwyn turned
away and walked down ths Incline from the
bridge. He would go on and rejoin Falrlle
at her own door. But bla walk waa spoiled,
aad the evening wss spoiled also. He
knew by hla schoolboy experience what the
Flowercot bad been In the daya when
Katie waa lta aola attraction. But now
with Falrlle alao!
A thought struck him. Perbapa aba waa
only aeeiug one of her little pupils home
She might have a word of kindness or of
warning to bestow on tbe child's mother.
Of course what a fool he bad been.
He turned back. There they were.
"How do you do, Falrlle?"

To John Olendonwyn, for the moment
Herod tbe Great aeemed an unjuatly ma

John felt that he ought to be forgiven
But ao strange srs tbe Inconsistencies ef

higher spirits now thaa when he had aeen
her before. Never, indeed, had John be
held ber ao kind and gay. Her blue eyea
aeught bla with tbe utmost frankness, or at
leaat did not appear to avoid tham. In
stead of the demure maidea of the school
room the young maa found that ha had to
do with ft romp and ft madcap that is, ss
far as the young woman's ongoings with
Master Johnny Colstoun were concerned.
The two ran races far ahead, Johnny re
ceiving ten yards' law, being caught up
Shrieking and swung high In the air. And
aa for holding bands a matter upon which
the young gentleman had shown himself so
ruthlessly observant be Invariably clutched
at "Teatier's" hand ae soon as each race
John Olendonwyn walked quietly behind,
carrying the books of tbe elder romp with
as much Christian charity and submission
as the occasion permitted. When the
roysterers stopped, panting and breathless,
to wait for ths laggard, John took credit
for his perspicacity in placing himself on
the side further from his tormentor. But
if this were hie object he wss singularly
unsuccessful. For so soon as Johnny Cols
toun observed the maneuver bs promptly
cast .loose ths hand ta which be had at
tached hlmeelt and, running round. In
sinuated himself between John Olendonwyn
and "Teatser" with the gentle courtesy of a
locomotive clearing the track.
"I wish you would go to the other aide,"
suggested John Olendonwyn presently, with
some acridity. "I do not like the smell of
"Well, Teatser does. Ehs's sucking one
now!" replied the youth triumphantly. And
Instead of blushing the shameless Fstrlie
sdmltted the fact.
"I don't think I shall ever grow up
really," aha owned. "'I am just as fond of
sweets ss ever I wss and, do you know, my
little sweetheart here haa been giving me
quite lot. I'm afraid be has been spend
ing all bis money."
A horseman rode up rapidly out of the
darkness of the wood, at the further end of
which Boatcraft waa situated. John had
not been thinking of or observing anything
out of tbe immediate circle which (se far

Suddenly he heard hla name called aloud
In a man's voice. '
"So thla la where you are, you rogue!"
It was hla brother who waa speaking, and
John's heart leaped Jealously for tbe first
time in his life.
"Who Is your friend I beg your par
don," Rupert broke off at algbt of Falrlle,
"I did not aee you had a lady with you.
Will you Introduce me?"
The horseman had leaped from his sad
dle aad stood before them with his bat In
hla hand, bowing gracefully, before John
could utter a word. i
Rupert Olendonwyn might have been
called a beautiful young man, with aome
thlng of the air and profile of one of the
old French mastera of fence, Buasy d'Am-
bolss or d'Artsgnsn a low brow, a curved,
sensitive nose, a long, black mustache, and
a rather prominent chin. His blsek bair
being caat back from a low brow gavo bim
a somewhat rrckleaa look, which waa not
belled by a white bullet mark on the cheek
which be had obtained in a duel in Al
e-erla. But RuDert's eres could be soft
,nd caressing la expression, and tbey ware
so aow. At his brother,, indeed, be
seareely looked. Hla eyes were for little
Falrlle, who, after gayety auddenly sub
dued, stood motionless, clutching Johnny
Colstoun's hand as if hs alone could pro
"Introduce me, John!" he had to repeat
his request before John snswered.
"Miss Fslrlls, this is my brother Ru
More than that he could not bring him
aelf to do. But hla brother waa at no lose.
I am fortunate, indeed," he aaid, readily.
I have been looking In vain for my
brother all day. Miss Fslrlls. Nobody at
Csstls Oower hsd seen him or knew what
had become of him. And aa aome men
were coming over from Drumfern to stay
a day or two with me, I wanted him to be
there to held me entertain them!"
By thla time Falrlle bad quite recovered
"I met Mr. Glendonwya at tha bridge as
my little friend Johnny snd I were going
home together," shs said calmly. "He
was good enough to csrry my books for
Then Mlas Fslrlls is still taking les
sons In Kllgour I had ao Idea there were
aucb good teachers there," said Rupert
who had at once monopolised the converse
tlon and usurped John's plsce by Falrlle
Olendenntng. Tbs youngster etalked along
in gloomy alienee.
"O, I am not taking, but giving lessons."
said the girl quickly, "and my name la not
Mtaa Falrlle, but Falrlle Olendenntng."
"Then yeu certainly- give my brother a
lesson ta the art of making Introductions."
aaid Rupert with a bow.
"Pah!" thought John, contemptuously,
"he epeake to a girl like Falrlle as If she
were a Frenchwomsa who needed sll the
time to be paid complimaota to!"
"New that I have found the truant." cfti
tlnued Rupert, "may I turn and walk back
with you that is, ss fsr ss John wss going
to accompany your"
And without' waiting for a reply he threw
the rclaa of hia borae ever bis arm and
walked on by Fairlle's aide.
The girl was oocupled ia thinking hewwlih sa ftlr ef good-fellowship, as if to wsi'
Shs would muster up coursgs to prevent
bim coming to Boat croft, lest he should
meet her fatber. For though from long
aseoclstlon and certain liking for tbe
lonely boy, David Olendenntng bad grown
accustomed to seeing John about the
place, tbe proud old gray wolf had a
deep-rooted antipathy to the whole race
of the Qlendonwyns. And Falrlle, In whose
thoughts gentleness and peace kissed each
otber mutually and continuously, did not
at all know how he might take the sudden
Introduction to his house of the heir of
It was at thla moment that Master Johnny
Colstoun, at Drat Infinitely" Impressed by tbe
dashing cavalier, created a diversion.
Johnny resented It bitterly when anybody
monopolised bla beloved "Teatier's" atten
tion. So bs set up a howl of despair which
made Rupert'a spirited horse dance A little,
till hla master qnlted him with a pat or
two on the gloasy arch of bla neck.
"Ooo-oeo-ooh!" he cried. "I'se dwoppled
all of my bwsndy balls. 'las, evewy one!
Johnny sb ant's do on no, hs sbaitft! Some
body doe And m!"
And promptly suiting tbe deed to the
word, he squstted down on tbe snow and
proceeded to bowl most lustily.
"What does hs wsnt? Whoa, there!
Bravo! Steady boy-stt-o-ol"
"He saya be haa dropped his sweets on
the road," translated Falrlle, out of the
"Who is the little grubby beast, any
way?" growled Rupert to hla brother, aa
Falrlie bent down and tried by kisses and
promises to comfort her charge.
"The son of ths rector of the academy,"
aaid John, briefly. t
"Me will doe back mlnesel( wanta to
do back now!" howled Johnny the Obsti
nate, "eheji't doe wif you If oo' won't find
me my bwandy balls!"
"Oh, for beaven'a aake go get the little
wretch his sweets," said Rupert, whoss
horse wss not used to such Infantile dis
plays of vigor "tbey csn't bs far . back.
He'll drive Bravo wild in a minute with
his yelling! It'a worse than ft road engine!"
Falrlle looked up quickly, but it waa too
dark to aee the expression in her eyes.
Whereat, John, nervoualy sensitive, took
her silence for acquleacenoe In Rupert's re
quest, lifted bis bst, turned silently on his
heel, and strode savagely back toward Kll
gour bridge with bla eyea on the ground,
anathematising (in their order) dirty little
boys aa a class. Little Johnny In particu

and lastly hla own awkward, clumay un

that a few mlnutea after he had completely
passed out of earahot, the first mentioned
young gentlemen burst out afresh:
"Oo, I aay, teatser I'ae flnded se bwandy
balls in se pocket of mine dsacket dcust
where I putted sem at first! How funny!"
'0 you bad little boy." cried Falrlle,
shaking blm; "you must ride back quickly
and call John I mean Mr. Olendonwyn."
And at thla point the girl stammered and
"My. horss is tired and I fear a little
lame," aaid Rupert. "John will be back
In a moment. Miss Falrlle. It Is only a
step to the towa. I daresay he Is -buying

"Can little Daonny wide on your borae?"
"Little . Qconny can!" aaid Rupert
promptly, adding under hla breath. "Lit

As wss somewhat clearly foreshadowed by
the discovery of Master Johnny Colstoun.
before mentioned, John Olendowyn failed to
dlscovsr on the road to tbe Brigend ot
Kllgour any trace of tbe lost "brandy
balls." He proved, however, that bla
brother had not misinterpreted his char
acter by striding directly to tbe shop of
miss effliiy rarton and ordering a pound
ot "brandy balls" in toneg auitable (as the
lady declared) to the purchase of a cor
responding quantity ot prussic acid.
On ths wsy back, however, he fouod It
difficult to preserve this sttltuds of gloomy
grandeur. He lost his rulns-of-emplres
look. The humor of tbe situation began te
striks blm. He wss hoist with his owe
petard. For It waa with hla owa bribe that
the original brandy balls bad been bought.
Nay, more. It aeemed exceedingly probable
that "Ul Dsonny" had gone straight to hla
lady love and remorselessly "sold" his
benefactor. Also that that young lady, ap
predating the asslstancs of a wstchdog se
faithful and effective as Master Johnsy

But, alas for hla romancs. The door shut
with ft slam from within. Whereupon
there ensued ft scraping-ot iron shovel in

It waa tbe voice of Harry Olendenntng,
second aon of David, and it waa clear that

with toffee-balls in hla pocket had

face like a flower looked kindly upon
him as It were out of the dark winter aky.
But It was Kste Olendenntng who opened
ths door to him, tresdlng like s lissom
practical-minded princess, and dusting the
flour of acone-baklng from her banda as
Kats had no personal concern In John,
but shs liked him. Though she bad known

And while John Olendonwyn, still sfter
