The Minister's Wife
By MRS. HENRY WOOD
OIIAPTEIt XIX. (Continued.)
She swept nway majestically, leaving
''Charles to make nn ignominious exit from
the house. But Charles was not In a hur
ry to do it. lie wanted to explain, yet
with whom? The subdean was so hoi and
peppery, especially In the first blush of
an affair, and that nn explanation with
' him generally did more harm than good.
Apart from that, what explanation had
laharles to give? None. None that would
be believed. As he stood thus thinking,
the room door was slowly pushed open
-.and Reglna appeared.
"She's gone, Isn't she, Charley? Was
he very dreadful?"
Very," returned Charley, shutting the
"When Aunt Ann has a grievance, no
one can come up to her, and It's many a
cyear since she had such a grievance as
vthis one," went on Reglna. 'Oh, Char
Icy, what fun it was! how did you pluck
tip the courage? and who was It?"
"Just tell me what you've heard," said
"That you were at the Ilaymarket
Theater, in its most conspicuous place,
bcauiug a lady with painted cheeks. We
cot it all out of Janet, Aunt Ann's maid,
i'ou should have heard Aunt Ann In her
room last night, old Janet says, and all
the names she called you !"
"I suppose this has been told to
"Trust Aunt Ann for that. Who was
the lady, Charley?"
I wonder, Ilegina, whether you'll be

"Try me. Perhaps you are going to
ay it was Gertrude?"
"Gertrude is at Great Whitton, you
know. I don't know who it was, Regina,
for I was not at the theater at all. I
was in chambers all the night. I've heard
of this already. A friend of Peter Ches
ter's thought he saw me there just as
you describe. It must have been some
fellow who bears a resemblance to me.
Can't you get Mary to come down to me?
Do, Regina. And you will please tell her
from me that there's not a word of truth
In the tale. I must see her for a minute
"She will have to smuggle herself down
the staircase, then ! Aunt Ann is sure to
be on the watch," returned Regina. "I'll
Co and see."
Very shortly Mary came stealing In.
She was looking pale, but in better health
than before she went to Brighton. Charles
stood before her in agitation.
"Mary, before I attempt to greet you,
let me assure you that the story which
they have got up about me is utterly
false. You will not believe it?"
"Oh, no, no," she wildly said, as she
burst into tears and put her head upon
his breast. lie was about to clasp her
In his arms when the door was flung back
and Dr. Dynevor walked in.
To Charles confused astonishment, he
found that all was known. The repudi

with the whole affair, and wlsnls to give f
bright with the tender green of Spring,
and the hedges were budding into leaf.
Gertrude Baumgarten was slowly walking
through one of the country lanes toward
Avon House, enjoying the freshness of
the morning. The sun shone, the skies
were blue and unclouded, the air felt
warm almost as that of a summer's day,
and the birds sung with a rapture that is
iso exhilarating on these days when all
mature is springing into new life and
Leaning over the small wicket which
was placed only a few yards from the
large iron gates at Avon House, stood
"Lord Avon, looking at her as she ad
vanced. "You are back at last, Gertrude?"
"At last?" she repeated. "Why? Have
you wanted me, Uncle Avon?"
"Not at all. But I have been watch
ing for you for an age. What are you
carrying in that small parcel?"
"Feminine matters in which you can
carcely be interested," laughed Gertrude.
""I've been matching silks in the village
for my screen work, and it took me a
long time, for I wanted many shades.
Then I went on to see old Mrs. Whit
taker, who grows more deaf and crotchety
day by day. Are you watching for some
one else, Uncle Henry?"
"No," replied Lord Avon; 'I was only
thinking, Gertrude. I am going down
to the rectory presently; your mother
wants me to ask them to come in to din
ner." "Oh, pray do," said Gertrude. "It will
snake it less dull for them, and for us I
wish, you would tell me something," she
continued, after a pause.
"Well? What do you want to know?"
Ihe inquired, certain in ,,18 own mind as
tto the nature of her request.
"The letter you were reading at the
breakfast table I chanced to see the
writing, you remember, and said It was
(from Charles; upon which you put it
hastily into your pocket, telling me that
I saw too much and too quickly. It was
from Charles, was It not?"
"Yes. You are quite right."
"Then why did you rush it away In
Chat fashion, and pretend that I was mis
taken, Uncle Henry?"
"Because I wished not to draw your
mother's attention to it. I did not alto
gether understand the letter, and wanted
to go over it again alone. Charley has
been getting Into a mess. He was seen
at the play one night in strange company,
Agajn, the old bishop of Denham, calling
at his chambers, found some very unor
thodox pen-and-ink sketches on his blot
ting pad, Charley forthwith went down
in his lordship's estimation, and lost some
work the bishop had just offered him. I
should liko to have seen the good man's
face," broke off Lord Avon, laughing.
"Rut Is that all?" asked Gertrude. "It
does not seem a very terrible affair, If
there Is nothing more behind It."
"It certainly sounds rather like a case
f 'much ai about nothing," assented the
me (irst of all his own vprn.nn nf IK
Among other changes, tho engagement
with Mary Js broken off."
"But that Is serious," exclaimed Ger
trude, much troubled. "It will ruin both
their lives. Who has done It?"
"Dr. Dynevor, and on account of these
matters. I'm sorry for Charley, and sup
pose I must see into It," concluded tho
earl, passing at length through the gate.
He walked away. Gertrude went slow
ly up the garden and crossed to a nat
ural arbor formed by the Interlacing trees,
and there sat down on a bench overshad
owed by the flowering lilac and drooping

good, would Everard return to her?" shy
ly wondered Gertrude, with flushing
cheeks. "He said Why who Is
She half rose in her astonishment.
Strolling down the broad path from tho
house came Sir Everard Wllmot. Could
it bo he? Gertrude gazed as one in a
dream. Sir Everard walked across tho
lawn and held out his hand.
"I am eo much surprised," she said, as
her own hand met his, and her lovely face
turned to rose color. "I had not even
heard that you were expected."
"I came down from London this morn
ing," he answered, as he took his seat
beside her. "When Avon was last in
town he invited me to come to him for a
day or two. Having nothing particularly
on hand just now, I thought the occasion
too good to be lost. You are not sorry to
see me, Miss Baumgarten?"
"Oh, no; why should I be sorry?" flut
tered Gertrude. "We must all be glad to
see you, for it Is dull here. I often wish
A moment's silence. Then Sir Ever
ard took possession of tho hand again,
and bent a little forward, his face, slight
ly agitated, turned to hers.
"I am given to plain speaking, as you
may remember, Gertrude; I cannot beat
about the bush with fine phrases, as some
men can," he said. "My dear, I came
here to-day with one sole object that of
asking you to be my wife. Ob, Gertrude !
don't say me nay again 1"
She bent her head and her changing
face. Mis Baumgarten lost all her dig
nity, and burst into tears. Somehow he
did not regard it as a bad omen. Per
haps he was an expert at interpreting
signs and tokens. However that might
be, he put his arm around her and drew'
her geptly to him.
"My darling!" he whispered with im
passioned fervor. "I see that you will not
send me away." And Gertrude bent her
face still lower as she murmured :
"Perhaps you have not heard Mary
Dynevor and Charles their engagement
is broken off."
"Gertrude, don't you know me better
than that?" he rejoined. "Did you not
know, did you not see in the past days
that it was not Mary Dynevor I loved,
but you? When you refused me, refused
even to listen to a word I would have
spoken, I turned to Mary In I fear I
must say it vexation of soul. My dear,
why did you treat me so'
Should she ever be able to tell him?
Not yet, at any rate. She had mistaken
his frequent visits to the sick daughter
of a lady staying in the place, friends of
her own and of Lady Grace. A foolish,
gossiping woman had whispered to Ger
trude that Mr. Wilmot was paying so
much attention to this young sick lady
that their engagement was an absolute
certainty. Gertrude believed it, and be
came at once so resentfully jealous that
when Mr. Wilmot, not long afterward,
spoke to her, In her pride she retaliated
upon him with indignation. No, she could
not tell him all this to-day, or speak of
the sore repentance which had ever since
laid upon her.
She drew herself to the end of the
bench, put her hat on decorously, and es
sayed to converse upon Indifferent topics ;
the beauty of the day, the scent of the
lilac, the song of the birds. "Do you see
that laburnum?" she asked, scarcely
knowing what she said. "It is my favor
ite tree; the most beautiful of all trees;
the most graceful of all blossoms."
"Yes," he replied, "I almost agree with
you. The country people call it 'gold
chain' down with us," he added, smiling.
"Down with you?"
"In the country where my home is;
the fairest county In the heart of Eng
land. Soon to be your home also, I hope,
Gertrude. My darling, may the chains
that bind our future lives together be as
fair and golden as those of your favorite
Does Uncle Henry know
here?" she suddenly asked.
"Why, of course he does. I was with
him for half an hour before he went out.
I havo his best wishes, Gertrude; and
your mother's also. Ah, my dear, you
can find no excuse for turning from me
Gertrude rose. He placed her hand on
his arm and they walked together up the
path. Lady Grace looked at them from
the window with a smile of welcome. Sir
Everard nodded to her.
A remembrance rushed Into Lady
Grace's heart, a flood of tears to her eyes.
Just so, In that very garden, in the days
long gone by, had she loved and listened.
Listened and loved and yielded to the Im
passlonate vows of him who alone made a
heaven of hor life Gertrude's father,

"A few weeks. But most of It ha

"Everard Wilmot," repeated Cyras, In
surprise. "Ho was over in Wellington,
ivlinPrt I did nmko his acquaintance.
What's more, I was able to render him a
service, which I know ho has not for
gotten to this day."
"What was It?"
"Don't ask me, Charloy, for I cant
tell you. If Gertrude has choson hlm
sho has dono well."
"There's uothiug certain about It yot,
I fancy. Only, a hint was whispered to
me that Cyras I" burst out Charles, as
an Idea flashed across hlm. "It was you

place to astonishment. "Forgod your

most solemnly that I have never done any
thing of the kind, Charley. You may put

One morning there was a heavy fog
on the North River, and the ferryboat
was proceeding on Its way gropingly,
with frequent 6tops and much whistl
ing. Once out of the gloom a whistle,
a great big hoarse whistle, suggesting
an ocean liner, sounded close aboard.
There was a stir of uneasiness among
the crowded passengers, and the poet's
male companion looked up from his
newspaper with a nervous frown.
"Are you afraid?" he asked of the
"Afraid!" The word came with with-
erlng scorn. "Afraid! I! Why, you

The Island of Jersey Is one of the
oddest corners of King Edward's realm.
Anchored within sight of France, orig
inally peopled by sturdy Normans, the
Jersey folk of to-day present a strange
racial mixture, forming a little world
whore French shrugs are to be seen
on English shoulders.
Within Jersey's limited area of but
ten miles one way and six in another
may be found the most varied coastal
scenery, the richest foliage and rarest
flowers, the narrowest of picturesque
streew or lanes, tue oldest of farm
houses, the quaintest of fisher nnd farm
folk, the strangest of fish In tho St.
Heller market, and the largest cabbage-
stalks In the United Kingdom !
Scores of bays, no two alike, Indent
the coast some with pebbly beaches;
others with white or red sand floors:
some bounded by towering cliffs bearing
ancient casties on tneir summits; some
shelving gently from the uplands. White
lighthouses warn the sullor of the
ever-present danger from the sunken
rocks lying In wait for their prey. Fair

"It must be months since you wrote to

for both of us," returned the free-and-easy
Cyras; "and have sent you one of

have no end of business letters to write
now, besides looking after tho shipping;
so that when the day comes to an end
I don't care to set to work again."
"You seem to have taken quite a busi
ness turn," remarked Charles, only half
believing In his brother's industry.
"I took that a long time ago. It's a
positive fact, Charley. They aro going
to give me a share In the concern."
"And what about this bill, Cyras?"
"Oh, I'll see to it," said Cyras, airfly.
"Don't let It bother your head, lad."
"Have you any more bills out, Cyras?"
"And made payable here?"
"And what Is the amount?"
"Can't remember. A hundred pounds
or so. It's a Bond street tailor. I was
obliged to have a regular rig-out. Colo
nial tailors don't do for London."
Charles Baumgarten recalled a rumor
ho had heard about a month before that
whispered Inquiries were being made as
to his finances.
"Cyras, do you want to ruin mo?" he
cried, in a startled tone. "I must take
up these bills if you do not."
"Take up tho bills!" echoed Cyras.
"What for? You did not accept them."
"Jiut the people think I d d."

"How will you get mo out of It?"
"By paying tho bills myself. I'll kaI.

"vny not pay at once?"
Money runs away over here; It simply
melts In Paris. I brought about three

For one and another. Hnm fn m.

Cyras suddenly became serious. "This
has gono further than I Intended," ho
cried. "All my llfo 1 havo been getting
myself or others Into icrapos, and I sup
poso I shall do so to the end of the chap
ter. And tho best and the worst of It is

Charles looked up. "Have they been
traducing you as well as mo?" he asked.
"The lady I treated to the theater was
no other than Mrs. Carrlngton, as good
a womnn as ever lived, although, as Tony
Lumpkin would say, her cheeks are as
broad and red as a pulpit cushion. .But
It is all genuine color, Charley, Just its
sho herself Is a genuine woman.
"What brought you there alone with
her?' 'asked Charles. I
"That I was with her alone wn an ac
cident," answered Cyras. "I treated them
to the Ilaymarket, and took three of tho
best seats. At tho last moment. lut nn
wo were about to start In the cab, Car
rington's old father came In to spend the
evening, and he had to remain with hlm."
"I think you were Imprudent, to say
tho least of It," laughed Charles. 'Tho
lady was wonderfully got up, I was told."
"Like all born colonists, she Is fond of
any amount of fans and feathers," re
turned Cyras. "It was her first Intro
duction to a London theater, and a great
occasion to her, and sho put on all her
war paint accordingly. But of other paint
sho had none, Charley; she Is too honest
and good for that."
"Where are the C'arlngtons stoylng?"
"With his brother. He's a widower,
and lives at a pretty house, up Chelsea
way. Decent, Intelligent people, Charley ;
though, of course, not up to your mark."
"And whero are you staying, Cyrns?"
'I! You may well ask It. Finding
no homo open to mo on landing, the first
individual I dropjcd upon, after leaving
tne snip at the docks, was Harry Brlce.
He Is in Somerset Hous, you know; get
ting on, too; anil was bound that morn
ing on somo expedition to the customs.
Ho told me you were on circuit; thought
the mother and Gertrude were at Avon,
and said I must come to them at Norwood.
Down I wont. But Norwood's out of
the way for a fellow who wants to knock
about town, and I came back to a hotel.
Then I went to Paris with Tom Howard.
And here I am back again. And now you
know all, Charley."
"Quite enough, too," laughed Charley.
"We'll go to White's now." And Cyras
agreed with alacrity.
Tho Jeweler's shop was lighted when
they reached It. Mr. White and his as-
sutant were both In It. Charles walked
forward ; Cyras hold back a moment.
"I hear that bill Is protested, Mr.
White," began Charles.
"Yes, sir, or about to be," answered
the Jeweler. "And I must say I am sur
