One day Ird Tenterton returned to
his home from Iudon with a portrait
Ills daughter, entering hi study, aaw
It hanging on the wall. he was atru. k
with Its resemblance to her dead lover.
Phe said nothing to 'her father, who
pretended to be busy writing st bis i

her. He saw her ga utn It for a i
long while; then she went out to coo
ceal her emotloo. Tbe Mrtrslt was 1
thst of the man she "mournett. yet
slightly different. Phe bellsved It to
be the likeness) of some one who very
much resembled him. Not long after
this she came futo her father's study
agsln under pretense of Baking a ques
tion, but really to took at tbe picture.
It seemed to her that It had undergone
a slight cbangs; but, Iwlng In the same
place and In tbe same frame as fbe
one she had soen before, she thought
she wss mistaken. From time to time
ahe visited the study to gnie uan the
portrait., and every time -she found
some slight change! ' ,
The rtrnlt had been painted by tbe
artist employed - to carry out the
scheme, and he -was gradually altering
It from a picture very like her dead
lover to a likeness of Hugh Kcarbor
ough. Aod while be Was , doing this"
he. was changing a portrait of Hose

-He seated." said Uird Tenterton,
pretending not to notice this mutual
Impression, though while the young
people were intent upon each other
ho winked lit Sir Percy. Hugh and
Edith hud been assigned seats side by
side and were soon engaged In a con

"I have a similar experience In you,
she replied. "Your likeness to one who

A month Inter the two fathers were
congratulating Th'emselves that tbe son
of tbe one and the daughter of the
other were to be married.
"I tell yon, Scarborough," said Ten
