The Minister's Wife

CHAPTER VII. (Continued.)
Later In tho day she seemed a little
better; it was the rallying of the spirit
before departure. She knew it was de
ceitful strength, but It put hope into tho
heart of Mr. Baumgarten.
"Kyle, If he should live, you will nl
iwoys be kind to him?"
"Edith 1 Kind to him 1 Oh, my wife,
my wife," he uttered, with a burst of
irrepressible emotion, "you must not go,
and leave him and me."
She waited until ho was calmer; she
,was far more collected than he.
"You will love him?" she reiterated,
faintly; "you will always protect him
against the world's unkindness?"
"Ay ; that I swear to you," he ardently
replied. And Edith Banmgarten breathed
n sigh of relief, and quietly lay back upon
Her voice, hardly to be heard at nil,
kvas growing faiuter and fainter. Her
husband thought it must be the falntness
attendant on death ; but for a short time
he seemed to sleep.
He sat on; his arm beneath her neck,
his other hand held one of her hands. All
was still; so still that the ticking of
tEdith's watch, lying on the dressing ta
ble, was audible. About ten minutes had
thus passed when a slight cry from the
infant in the next room, followed by the
soothing hush of the nurse, fell upon Mr.
"My dear?" he breathed, vexed that her
fsloep should have been disturbed.
"I have been in that dream again
going on my long, long journey," she said
in disjointed syllables. "Oh, Ryle, I know
it now; it is the journey of death."
"My dear wife!" he cried, much dis
tressed. "The air is oh, so sweet and the light
at the far end so bright and lovely and
the flowers look at the flowers ! they are
the flowers of Heaven ! and and oh,
look! look "
The tone, growing inaudible, had taken
a glad sound of ecstasy; and with the
iast word, the spirit passed away.
After the funeral of Mrs. Baumgarten
the parish flocked to Whitton Cottage to
condole with their rector, and to see the
baby. He received them with quiet cour
tesy, but the most sanguine sympathizers
could not detect any encouragement for
n renewal of the visit. All that could
make life pleasant to Mr. Baumgarten
,was as yet buried in the grave of Edith.
Gradually he began to take notice of
the child ; at first he had avoided him.
The old servant, Dinah, who had lived
with the Danes for years, took charge of
him. Mr. Baumgarten would sometimes
have him on his knee now, and soon loved
him with an impassioned fondness. He
had nothing else to love.
Thus the months glided on to. winrer;
the rector fulfilling all his duties as of
yore, but leading a very lonely life.
One bright, frosty day in January,
vrhen the icicles shone in the sun and the
blue sky was cloudless, the open carriage
of Lady Avon drew up at the rectory
.t;ate. After the marriage of Mr. Baum
garten Lady. Avon had occasionally at
tended Little Whitton church as hereto
fore, but Lady Grace never. She had al
ways excuses ready, and her mother
who had never fathomed, or even suspect
d the true cause of Grace's caprice as
to the living put faith in them. The
countess declined to alight, and Mr.
Baumgarten went out to the gate.
"Would it be troubling you very much,
Mr. Baumgarten, to come to Avon House
occasionally and pass an hour with me?"
began she, as they shook hands.
"Certainly not, if you wish it," he re
plied. "If I can render you any service
i shall be very happy to come."
Lady Avon iowered her voice and bent
toward him. "I am not happy in my
mind, Mr. Baumgarten ; not easy. The
present world is passing away from me,
and I know little of the one I am enter
ing. I don't like the rector of Great
Whitton; he does not suit me; but with
5'ou I feel at home. I shall be obliged
to you to come up once or twice a week
and pass a quiet hour with me."
"I will do so. But I hope you find
nothing more than usual the matter with
"Time will prove," replied Lady Avon.
"IIow is your little boy?"
"ne gets on famously; he is a brave
little fellow," returned Mr. Baumgarten,
his eyes brightening. "Would you like
to see him? I will have him brought
"I should like to see him, yes; but I
will come in."
He helped her from the low carriage,
and gave her his arm up tho path, and
the most comfortable chair by the parlor
fire. The child was brought in by Dinah
a pretty babe in a white frock and
black ribbons, the latter worn in memory
of his mother.
Lady Avon took him on her knee.
"He will resemble you." she said, scan
ning his face ; "he has your eyes exactly
fleep and dark" and sho had nearly add
ed "beautiful." The child put his hand
upon her ermine boa.
"My pretty boy !" she exclaimed, fond
ly. "What Is his name?"
"Cyras. I know it would have pleased
Kdith to have him named after her fath
er." "Ah ! Poor Edith !" sighed Lady Avon,
as eho gave the child back to Dinah, and
arose. "Not the least distressing feature
of that loss was its suddenness. I wished
I could have come over to say farewell."
Mr. Baumgarten sighed in answer, as
lie again gave his arm to Lady Avon. "By
the way," she said, as he was settling her
In the carriage. "I must congratulate
you upon getting Into tho rectory. You
paid the cost of the repairs yourself, I
"Yes. I had some money left roe un
expectedly, and used It for the purpose."
"Well, I am glad you're in It. Good
day." Mr. Baumgarten paid his first visit to
Avon House on tho following day. Lady
Grace was alone in tho room when ho
t-ntered. Her countenance flushed crim
son, and then grew deadly pale.
Mr. Baumgarten took her hand, almost
la compassion; lie thought sho must be
ill. "What has been tho matter?" ho In
quired. "The matter! Nothing," and sho grew
crimson again. "Is your visit to mamma?
Do you wish to see her?"
"I am hero by appointment with Lady
The countess camo Into the room, and
Grace found that his visits were to bo
From that day they saw a great deal
of each other. Lady Grace strove to arm
herself against him; sho called up pride,
anger and many other adjuncts, false as
they were vain, for tho heart Is ever true
to itself, and will bo hoard. It ended In
her struggling no longer; In her giving
herself up, onco more, to tho bliss of lov
ing him unchecked.
Did he give himself up to the same, by
way of reciprocity? Not of loving her;
no, It had not come to It; but he did
yield to the charm of liking her, of find
ing pleasure in her society, of wishing to
be more frequently at Avon House.
The Hon. and Rev. Wilfred Elliotsen,
claiming a dead earl for a father and a
live earl for a brother, was. not, of course,
a light whose beams could bo hid under
a bushel, more particularly as the live
earl was in the cabinet. It therefore sur
prised no one that when the excellent o"ld
Bishop of Barkaway was gathered to his
fathers and n lucky canon, who held ono
of the best livings in the kingdom, was
promoted to his miter, Mr. Elliotsen
should step into the canon's shoes, rich
living nnd nil. This left Great Whitton
vacant. As luck, or tho opposite, chanc
ed to have it, Lord Avon was on a few
Bays' visit to his mother when Mr. El
liotsen received his appointment.
"Don't put such another as Elliotsen
into Great Whitton, Henry," observed the
countess to her son, "or we shall have
the parish in rebellion."
"He has not succeeded in pleasing his
flock yet, then?" remarked his lordship.
"Give it to Mr. Baumgarten. He is a
deserving man, Henry; he will restore
peace to the parish, and as a preacher
few excel him."
Lord Avon laughed a little as he sat
down to face the sofa.
"Why, mother, Baumgarten is the very
man I had in my own miud. I thought
by your preamble you must have fixed on
some one else. I would rather he had It
than any other person in the world. I
can tell you that the smart the last con
tretemps brought ine lingers yet. Let it
be Baumgarten ; we owe him a recom
pense." And that very day the earl, afraid, pos
sibly, of fresh interference, personally of
fered Great Whitton to Mr. Baumgar
ten, nnd shook hands on its acceptance.
That same evening Mr. Bnumgarten
presented himself at Avon House. Grace
Carmel was standing amid the rose trees ;
she liked to linger in the open air at the
dusk hour, to watch the stars come out,
and to think of him. But that she wore
a white dress, he might not have distin
guished her in the fading twilight. He
left the open path to join her.
"It is a late visit, Lady Grace, which
I must apologize for; I was called out to
a sick friend as I was starting, and de
tained an hour," he said; "but I could
not resist coming to say a word of grati
tude to Lord Avon."
"Your visit will not accomplish Its ob
ject, Mr. Baumgarten, for my brother is
gone. He left before doinner upon some
matter of urgent business in town. Mam
ma says she is very glad that you will be
nearer to us."'
"Perhaps I have to thank you for this,
as much as Lord Avon," he said.
"No; no, Indeed; It was mamma who
spoke to Henry; or he to her; they ar
ranged it between them. I I "
"What?" he whispered.
"I did not speak to him," she contin
ued, filling up the pause of hesitation.''
"That is all I was going to say."
But Mr. Baumgarten did not fail to de
tect how agitated she was. Her trembling
hands were busy with the rose trees,
though she could scarcely distinguish
buds from leaves. Mr. Baumgarten took
one hand, and placing it within bis own
arm, bent down his face until it was on
a level with hers. "Grace," he whispered,
"have we misunderstood each other?"
She could not speak, but her lips turn
ed white with her emotion. It was the
hour of bliss she had so long dreamed of.
"Grace," he continued, in a tone of im
passioned tenderness, "have we loved each
other through the past, and did I mistake
my feelings? Oh, Grace, my best-beloved,
forgive me! Forgive my folly and my
With a plaintive cry of satisfied yearn
ing, such ns may escape from one who
suddenly finds a long-sought-for resting
place, Grace Carmel turned to his em
brace. He held her to him ; he covered
her face with impassioned kisses, ns he
had once covered Edith Dane's; he whis
pered all that man can whisper of poetry
and tenderness. She was silent from
excess of bliss, but she felt that sho could
have lain where she was forever,
"You do not speak," he jealously said ;
"you do not tell me that you forgive tho
past., Grace, say but one word; say you
"Far deeper than another ever did,"
she murmured. "Oh, Ryle ! I will be
tnoro to you than she can have been "
"Grace, pardon my folly," ho implored.
"I am doing wrong; I have forgotten my
self strangely. Forgive, forgive me! It
is madness to aspire to you. I have no
right to seek to drag you down from
your rank to my level."
But sho clung to him still. "Your own
wife, your own dear wife," she whispered.
"Ryle, Ryle ; only love me forever."
Never had Lady Avon seen or suspect
ed aught of the case regarding her daugh
ter and Mr. Baumgarten.
The revelation came upon her with a
blow. It was Grace who, calling up her
courage, imparted It. Lady Avon went
into a storm of anger; and then, finding
her commands nnd reproaches produced
no impression upon Grace for good, wrote
In haste for Lord Avon.
An awful thing had happened, and ho
must come without n moment's delay, was
what she curtly wrote; and tho word
"awful," bo It understood, was In those
days used only In Its extreme sense, not,
ns at present, In ridiculous lightness. Lord
stand that past capricious trick Graeo
plnyed. Sho must even then havo been
In lovo with Baumgarten."
Lady Avon sat In bitter mortification.
"What is to bo done?" she asked.
"The best plan, so far ns I can see, will
bo to put a good fnco upon It, and let
her have him."
"Do you approve of him for your brother-in-law,
"No, not altogether. My sister and
your daughter ought to hnve made a very
different match. But you know what
Grace Is, mother ; nnd circumstances alter
It xvnn Mm nlnn nnrsuod. It Was the
I only pleasant plnn, ns Lord Avon hud
put It, that could be pursued. For Lady
Grace held to her own will, ami opposi
tion would only havo created scandal.
It was a long, red brick house, largo
nnd handsome, ns many of these country
rectories nre; and oiv tho spacious front
lawn, one glorious morning nt tho end of
June, might bo seen tho Rev. Ryle Baum
garten, his wife nnd children. Lady
Grace sat on a bench under tho shade of
the lime trees; the rector stood by, talk
ing with her. Two llttlo boys were run
ning nbout chasing a yellow butterfly.
They were dressed alike, after the fashion
of the day, In brown holland blouses,
white socks, shoes and broad-brimmed
They were wonderfully alike, these two
little half-brothers, each possessing his
father's face, in miniature ; the same pale,
healthy complexion, tho fine, clear-cut
features, the dark eyes so deeply set with
in their long lashes, and tho wavy brown
hair, soft ns silk. But In disposition they
were quite different. Cyras was bold, w;lf
willed, masterful, Charles gentle, pliant
and timid. Cyras was tail nnd strong,
nnd forward beyond his years ; the young
er one was yielding, childish and back
ward. Already Cyras constituted himself
his brother's protector, and Charles in
his hands was a tender reed. Tho nffec
tion between them was great, rather un
Some people had prophesied that Lady
Grace would repent her imprudent mar
riage. They proved to be wrong. Grace
was intensely happy in it. Sho had
brought with her only five hundred a year
to nugmcnt Mr. Bnumgarten's means;
it was all she would enjoy until Lord
Avon's death. Sho made a fairly kind
stepmother to the little Cyras, but she
had not the same affectiou for him ns for
Charles. Her baby, now In Jnquet's
arms, was a fair girl, the little Gertrude.
A large, low, open carriage, driven by
liveried postilion, was stopping at the
gate. Mr. Baumgarten hastened to assist
Lady Avon from it, and give her his nrm.
She walked slowly to the bench where her
daughter was sitting. She was just the
same invalid as ever, had been so,all the)
years ; but she did not seem to grow much
worse. The boys rnn up to her.
"The boys nre like their father, Grace,"
she observed, looking down at the Infant ;
"but Gertrude is like you."
"Yes," assented Grace, with a laugh.
"Well,"- mamma, that is just as it should
be, isn't it?"
"I suppose it is, my dear. Which of
you little boys will go for a drive with
me? It must be you, Cyras, I think, as
it is your birthday."
"Oh, yes, yes!" cried the boy, eagerly;
"I will go. Jaquct, fetch my best hat."
"Me, too," added little Charley.
"No, I can't manage both of you," said
Lady Avon. "You shall go nnother day,
Charley; perhaps to-morrow."
"My hnt, Jaquct!" again said Cyras,
impatiently, for the girl ltad not stirred.
Lady Grace looked at her.
"Do you hear?" she said, in her haugh
ty way. "Master Cyras told you to fetch
his hat. Bring his little cape as well."
Now this was just what Jaquet hated.
For Cyras to order her about imiwrious
ly, and for her lady to confirm it.
"Ryle," said Lady Avon to her son-in-law,
when Jaquet had gone for the things,
"can you not do something or other to
put down that fair?"
She spoke of a pleasure fair which was
held every midsummer on Whitton Com
mon, and lasted for a week.
The rector shook his head in answer.
"Why, no; how could I, Lady Avon?"
"You have greit influence in tho parish.
Every one looks up to you."
"But I have none over the fair. No
one has. It possesses 'vested Interests,'
you know," added Mr. Baumgarten, laugh
ing, "and they are too strong to bo in
terfered with. I try to induce my people
to keep away from it, that is all I can
