for The Term ofHis Natural Life
By MARCUS CLARKE
On a certain" May the garden of
large red-brick bow-windowed mansion
called North-end House was the scene
of a domestic tragedy. Three persons
were the nctors in it. One was an oh
man, whose white hair and wrinkled face
gave token that he was at least sixty
years of age; Ho stood erect, in th
nttitudo of one surprised into sudden
passion, and held uplifted the heavy
ebon cane upon which lie was ordinarily
nccustomcd to lean. He was confronted
by a man of two-and-twenty, unusually
tall and athletic of figure, dressed in
rough seafaring clothes, and who held In
Jus arms, protecting her, n lady o
middle age. The face of the young man
"wore- an expression of astonishment
nnd the slight frame of the gray-haired
woman was convulsed with sobs.
These three peoplo were Sir Richard
Devine, his wife, and his only son Rich
nrd, who had returned from abroad that
"So, madam," said Sir Richard, in the
high-strung accent which in crises of
great mental agony are common' to the
nost self-restrained of ns, "you have
been for twenty years a living lie! For
twenty years you have cheated and
mocked me. For twenty years you have
laughed at nic for a credulous fool; and
now, because I dared to raise my hand
to that reckless boy, you admit it, nnd
glory in the confession!"
"Mother, clear mother!" cried the
young man. in a paroxysm of grief, "say
that you did not mean those words; you
said them but in anger! See, I am calm
uow, and he may strike me If he will."
Lady Devino shuddered, creeping
close, as though to hido herself in the
broad bosom of her son.
The old man continued: "I married
you, Ellinor Wade, for your beauty; you
married mo for my fortune. I was n
plebeian, a ship's carpenter! you were
well born, your father was a man of
fashion, the friend of prodigals. I was
rich. I had been knighted. I was in
favor at court, no wanted money and
he sold you. I paid tho price he asked,
but there was nothing of your cousin,
my lord Belinsis in the bond."
"Spare me. sir, 6paro me!" said Lady
"Spare you! Ay, you have spared
me, have you not? Lookye," he cried
In sudden fury, "I am not to be fooled
so easily. Your family are proud. Col
Wade has other daughters. My lord
Bellasis, even now thinks to retrieve
his broken fortunes by marriage. To
morrow your father, your sisters, all the
world, shall know the story you have
"You will not do this!" burst out the
"Silence!" cried Sir Richard.
Lady Devine slipped through her son's
nrms, and fell on her knees at her hus
Do not do this, Richard. I have been
faithful to you for" two and twenty
years, l have borne nil the slights nnd
Insults you have heaped upon me. The
secret of my early love, the confession
that I never loved you, broke from me
when, in your rage, you threatened him.'
Sir Richard, who had turned to walk
nway, stopped suddenly, nnd his great
white eyebrows came, together in his
red face with a savage scowl. He
laughed, and in that laugh his fury
seemed to congeal into a cold and cruel
"You shall have your wish upon one
"What is it, sir?" she asked, rising,
but trembling with terror, as she stood
with drooping arms and widely opened
The old man looked at her for an in
Etnnt, and then said, slowly:
"That this disobedient son, who has
wrongfully squandered my money and
eaten my bread, shall pack! That he
keep himself from my sight, and never
set foot again In house of mine."
Richard Devino gently loosed the
orms that again clung around his neck,
Kissed tne pale face, and turned his
Ecarcely less pale toward the old man
"I owe you no duty," he said. "You
have always hated and reviled me.
When by your violence you drove me
from your house, you set spies to watch
me In the life I had chosen. I have
nothing in common with you. I have
long felt It. I accept the terms you
oner. 1 will go."
Sir Richard Devine laughed again. "I
nm glad to see you aro so well disposed
Listen now. To-night I send for Quaid
to alter my will. My sister's son, Man
nee a? rere, snail ue ray neir in your
steau. 1 give you nothing. You leave
this house In an hour. Y6u change your
name; you never by word or deed make
claim on me or mine. I return in an
hour, madam; let mo find him gone."
Ho passed them, upright, as If un
borne by passion, strode down the gar
den with the vigor that anger lends,
and took tne road to i-ondoii.
"Richard," cried tho poor mother.
"Forgive me, my son! I have ruined
Richard Devine tossed his black hair
from his brow In sudden passion of love
"Mother, dear mother, do not ween.
he said. "I nm not worthy of your
tears. Forgive! It Is I Impetuous and
ungrateful during all your years of sor
row who most need forgiveness. Let
mo sharp your burden that I may light
en it. Ho is just. It Is fitting that I
go. I can earn a name a namo that
I need ,not blush to bear nor you to
hear. I am strong. I can work. The
world Is wide. Farewell, my owu moth
er!" "Not yet, not yet! Ah! see, he has
taken tho Belsizo road. Oh, Richard!
pray heaven they may not meet."
"Tush! They will not meet. You are
pale, you faint!"
"A. terror of I know not what coming
ovll overpowers me. I tremble for the
future. Oh, Richard, Richard! forgive
me! pray for me!"
"Hush, dearest! Come, let me lead
you In. I will write. I will send you
news of me once, at least, ere I depart.
Bo, you are calmer, mother!"
