"I vUS to marry If Us ClrcAmors."
1 saw nothing more of Rate that day.
M I came across Slnrk several times,

new my longing to chastise him. 1 was

and on my saluting him he sauutered up
to my table and complied with my invi

The waiter brought us coffee, and un
der its stimulus I ventured to introduce
the subject which lay nearest to my
heart to Mr Birchmore's notice. -No
doubt I put my best foot foremost, and
spoke as eloquently as was consistent
with my downright earnestness and sin
eenty Mr Uirvhmore heard me almost
in silence, only giving evidence by an
occasional word or interjection that he
was giviug me his attention. Once or
twice, too, I was aware of his having
given me one of those sharp, icy glances
for which he was remarkable. When 1
had spoken he lingered the pointed beard

"Mr Birchmore, 1 cannot take this
for an answer. Von have given me no

as I dare say she does When you are
older yon will understand that men can
not always follow that coarse in the

sirable." "However yonng or old 1 may be. Mr.
Birchmore, 1 am old enough to know my

that those circumstances, however co

how your loving my daughter obliges

"i aon t want to know yonr secrets,

We made a late start the next morn
ing and did not reach the farmhouse be
fore four o'clock. 1 had little oppor
tunity of speaking to Rate on the way-,
in fact, the presence of blurk. who sat
on the box of the vehicle and once in
while threw a glance at us over his
shoulder, irritated me to such a degree
that more tender sentiments were tem
porarily pushed into the background.
Kate herself, though she attempted to
appear cheerful, betrayed signs of in
ward anxiety and nervousness, while
Mr. Birchmore conversed with a volu
bility and discursiveness greater than I
bad ever remarked in him before.
The farmhouse stood quite alone on
on unfrequented by-road, in a little angle
of the hills. It was not exactly a pictur
esque building, with its foor walla cov
ered with rough plaster and pierced
with dozens of small windows, and its
, ... , , .7
enormous red tiled roof, with those
quaint, narrow apertures, like half open
ed eyes, disclosing a single pane of glass,
which do duty as dormers. It stood flush
with the road, as German houses are
fond of doing; but behind was a large
Inclosed farmyard, roughly paved with
round stones and well walled in. The
front door, though rather pretentiously
! painted and ornamented with some re
ligious versicle or other written npon
the lintel, was not used as a means of
entrance or exit
It was, as 1 afterward discovered, not
only locked and bolted, bnt actually
screwed np on the inside, and the only
way of getting into the house was by a
side door opening into the courtyard.
As the courtyard itself was provided
with a heavy gate, yon will see that the
farmhouse, close to the road though it
was, was by no means so easy of ingress
or egress as it appeared supposing, of

mastor of the h"ns0. now came out to
take charge of my trunk. 1 was, or
fancied myself (as you may nave
noticed), a quick judge of faces, and
this peasant's face failod to commend
itself to me. It was at once heavy and
gloomy, while a scar at one corner of
his mouth caused that feature to twist
itself into a perfunctory grimace, gro
tesquely at variance with his normal ex
pression. In person he was much above
the common size, and to judge by the

lives in the Latin Quarter and is con

"Yes, honored Uerr," returned Chris
tina, smiling for the first time and
showing her pretty teeth and a dimple
on either cheek. "My brother Heinrich
cut and arranged the diamonds in the
pamre of the honored Herr' mother."
'So he did, Christina, and he did it
better than any one except bitn could
have done it And so thou art really his
sister! How did he tell thee of nie?"
"He wrote to me while you were still
in Paris and described the pretty stones,
and told bow Herr Gainsborough used
to come and sit with him and see him
work and talk a great deal with him."
"Yes. he was well worth talking with.
And 1 remember uow that he said he

he had a sister and a father living here.
