i Aunt Diana :
of the Family
CHAPTER XIX. (Continued.)
It was a lovely evening, as Missle said
one of those rare September evenings
that come when summer and autumn seem
blending into cadi otlter, Alison stood
for a moment in the ball, debating whoth
cr she was too tired to seek Roger in the
timber yard, or whether she should . in
dutgo in solitnry muring under the lime
trees. A free half hour was a delicious
4oon, and she must employ it to the best
advantage. She decided after a moment
that she was too dull for even Roger';
company to cheer her for she was ill one
of those moods that the masculine mind
finds so difficult to understand and she
was just taking down her garden hat from
the peg when a figure came between her
and the evening light, a familiar voice
spoke her name, and the next moment All
son was in Aunt Diana's arms.
.Miss l arrington s kisses were very
grave and tender. They spoke volumes.
but she seemed to have no words at the
moment. Rut Alison's "Oh, Aunt Di 1
was more than eloquent the qutver o
her voice meant ecstasy. Rut the next
moment Miss Carrington put her at arm":
length, and, still holding her, scrutinized
her face almost pitifully.
"Allie, my poor, dear child, what have
they done to you? Oh, dear, what thin
cheeks, what heavy eyes !" And sud
denly closing her face between her hands,
she kissed her again and again, and Miss
Carrington tvas not n demonstrative worn
. an her caresses meant something out of
the common. They brought Alison's soft
color back, and the happy tears came into
"I am glad I did not tell yon," re
turned, unsteadily; "I shall be quite well
and rested now I have seen your dear
face again. Oh, Aunt Di, how I have
wanted you." her voice sinking still
"Yes, I know," replied Miss Carring
ton. almost abruptly all the more be
cause her feelings were not so well un
der control as usual. "Allie, what- must
you have thought of my silence? Come,
let us sit down somewhere where I can
talk to you without interruption. I don'i)
want to see any other face but yours
for the present not even Roger's."
"I, think my room will be best,", re
turned Alison, hesitating a little. "Miss
Leigh is in the drawing room and Rudel
In the iinlng room, and Roger generally
sits in the study when he comes In of an
evening. Wait a moment, Aunt Di,
please; I must ask Sarah to make some
tea for you supper will not be ready
for an hour. Oh." smiling archly, "I
know your taste Aunt Di can not go
without her tea."
Miss Carrington offered no remon
gtrance; perhaps she was In need of re
freshment. She waited to see the cab
man deposit her luggage in the hall, and
then she followed Alison upstairs.
"My dear," she observed, looking round
her as she entered, "this is not your old
room : I thought this was Missie s?
"Yes, but Missie had mine, and I did
noti like to turn her out it would only
have caused unpleasantness. Please do
not look so grieved. Aunt Di; I have
got used to it, and do not mind the crane
so much as I did at first at least, it does
not make my head ache."
"And you never told me. I could not
have borne to have thought of you in
this room, Allie. Well, you have spared
me many a heartache. I should have
wanted my child, back in her little nest
. and have been unhappy because I could
not get her." And Miss Carrington pos
itively shuddered as she looked at the
grim lines of the crane, and round the
dark, heavily furnished room.
"I am glad I did not tell you, ' re
turned Alison, gently, as she unfastened
Miss Carrington's mantle and waited on
her. Perhaps Aunt Diana loved to feel
the soft little hands busy about her, for
she offered no resistance as Alison
smoothed her hair, and brought her a
footstool, of which she took possession
"That is right," observed Miss Car
rington, stroking the brown head that laid
Itself In child fashion on her lap. Alison
was so very tired therp was utter aban
don in her attitude, and yet she was so
"Now we will have one of oar cozy
talks don't look at the door, Allies I am
In no hurry for my tea. My dear, I am
longing to tell you how It is your letters
have miscarried; I read them all for the
first time last night."
"Aunt Di, do you mean that you have
flown to us only telegraph wires could
have done it, laughing incredulously.
"You may be sure that I should have
.flown to you if I had the power," return
ed Miss Carrington, seriously. "Allie,
I was not In Switzerland, as you, thought.
I was recalled suddenly, a fortnight ago
by Mr. Moore's sudden Illness. Greville
telegraphed for me, and I came home at
"Mr. Moore HI!" exclaimed Alison,
with a fast paling face.
"3Tcs, very ill, but, thank God, my dear
old friend is better now. It has been an
anxious time for us, darling. Greville
Is cast down nnd unhappy you need not
look at me so reproachfully. I would
not write to you it would' have given
you useless pain, and I was so engrossed
with nursing that letters were Impossi
ble luxuries. Little did I think In my
night watching that Allie was anylous
and unhappy, too."
"Aunt Di, that Is why you look tjred."
"Tired J Nonsense, child. It is a bless
ed thing to wear out one's self for one's
friends. I lore that sort of fatigue. I
could not have left my patient until ho
was out of danger, but now I can safely
trust him la Grevlllo's charge. He is a
capital nurse, in spite of bis boyishness,
and he has Rurton to help him. Ily the
bye, Mr. Moore sent his love to Sunny.
Stay, I must try and remember his mes
sage; he bade his little sunbeam remem
ber her mission, and not to be afraid of
"Did Mr. Greville send me a message,
too?" asked Alison, a little timidly, Miss
"wen, 1 mnuc no sent ms lore, too "un, Alison, It win bo dreadful te tea

but I told him I could not be a carrier of
notwense, nnd should only deliver one
'lhat he had kept his promise, and had
been working famously. "
"Oh, I am so glad," returned Alison,
brightening at; this. "Aunt DI It was
not good of you to keep Mr. Moore's Ill
ness from mo ; I should have liked ' to
have shared your anxiety. Dear old man,
I nin so thankful he Is spared."
"His character seetned lovelier than
ever In his hours of suffering," observed
Miss Carrington, thoughtfully; "ho was
so patient, so grateful to us nil for our
care of him. I understood then what
being llko ft little child meant it seemed
as though it were wo who were blind, not
he lie seemed so steeped In the light of
"Do you think he wanted to die?" nsk
ed Alison, in an awestruck voice. "How
strange it seems that he should be so
willing to go.
"Why not?" replied her nunt. "Death
has no terrors for him. Why should he
fear the summons from the Mastor whom
ho loved and tried to servo here, and who
died on the cross for his redemption? And
yet he was resigned to stay, for Gre
vlllo's sake. The lad wants me a little
longer,' he said oucc. 'Well, I suppose
I can spare my boy a year or two out of
eternity; I mean to have no will of my
own about it. When the Master calls I
shall be ready, but perhaps for who
knows His graclousness? Ho may be
thinking of my boy, too.' "
"How I should love to seo him again !'
exclaimed Alison with a sigh.
"So you will by and by, I hope, ne
missed you dreadfully, Alison."
"And you, Aunt Di?"
"I am not going to tell you about that."
Then, as Alison's eyes looked pleading,
she continued earnestly: "Child, I believe
we nro a sort of necessity to ench other
at least, I find my life will not shape
itself properly without you. I am always
thinking how Allie will like this or that.
Your absence quite took away the pleas
ure of my trip. You naughty child, you
look delighted; but there comes my tea
please pour mo a cup, and then tell me
all about your poor father." '
Alison was soon narrating the story
of the last fortnight. Miss Carrington
had received hers and Roger's letters late
the previous night, and Mr. Moore's had
put her in possession of the latest news;
still there was much that she wished to
hear. She listened attentively, and with
out interruption, as the girl poured out
the history of her hopes and fears. Her
grave, interested face, and now and then
a tightened grasp of Alison's hand, spoke
In mute sympathy, but otherwise she said
"It has been a dreadful time," finished
Atison. "Roger and I were so afraid of
papa, and then Missie was so unhappy
and ill. TCiat is Roger's whistle, Aunt
Di he is wondering what has become of
me. Shall I call him in?" And Miss
Roger's look of intense surprise amused
them excessively, but he welcomed his
aunt with evident satisfaction.
"Now Allie will 'be all right again,"
he observed, with a smile at her; "she
has been sick for months, Aunt Diana.
You are noUgoing to take her away from
us just at present, are you?"
"Xo, not just now," returned Miss
Carrington. quietly. "I am going to stop
until you are tired of me, and then Allie
and I must say good-by to each other for
a little longer. What should you say to
bringing her for a few weeks in the
spring, if your father gets better? You
look in want of a change, Roger; they
are working you too hard, my boy."
"You must not tempt me, Aunt Diana,"
he returned, rather gravely. "There will
be no holiday for me next year. The
whole concern rests on my shoulders at
present, and our manager is a defaulter.
Alison shall go with you, and welcome."
"Well, well, we must see nbout It;
winter comes before spring. There is
plenty of time, and I don't mean to give
up my plan of having you and Allie to
gether. Xow I must see your father;
will iou take me to him.'" And Roger
consented with alacrlts'.
In the passage she stopped and laid
her hand upon his arm.
"Thank you for taking care of Allie;
I know how good you have been to her."
It is she who lias been good to Us," he
returned, with a sudden flush. "Aunt
Diana, you do not know the blessing she
lias been to us; we have to thank you
for that. Alison would never have been
the girl she is if you had not taken so
much pains with her,"
"Don t make me vain, Roger."
"Missie and I have proposed buying
her a little red morocco book and pre
senting it to her," continued Roger, with
dry humor; "the title will be 'Aunt Di
ana's Sayings," for Allie brings out a
fresh one every day. Missie says she is
inventive, and. coins them herself; but I
have an idea that they are genuine."
Miss Carrington shook her head at
him, and only bade him bad the way
to his father's room. Alison had already
prepared Jiira for his sister-in-law b visit,
and lie held out his hand with a pleased
"Tliis is kind, Diana. I said the si
lence was not like you; my poor girl
here has boon fretting herself about It;
hut of courso you never got the letters."
So, indeed; Alison will tell you about
It presently. It Is too late for me to
prolong my visit now. Invalids should
be quiet at this hour. You see I under
stand nil about it, Ainslle ; but I am griev
ed to the heart to see you like this."
'You must not make yourself unhappy
about it; It Is only a case of patience,
and I have good, attentive children. I
wish tlipir mother could sec them; she
was always so proud of them,"
ica, indeed! Poor T'lorrnce, you
must m(ss licr, Ainslle." And Miss Car
rington's Hp quivered slightly, for her
sister hadjbeen the object of her dearest
affection ; she had never felt so drawn to
Florence's Husband as she did now: her
gray eyes rested uion him pityingly.
"Children, you must take care of your
aunt; she must be tired with her jour
ney. To-morrow you must come nna sit
with roe, DJana." Miss Carrington felt
herself gently dismissed, but she did not
misunderstand him, and, pressing Ills
hand kindly, she followed tbe-others from

people who mako one fool small and hor

Now, Miss Carrington had quick cars,
and sho caught tho most of this speech
and laughed to herself softly; for It Is
thoso who try hard to be good who are
tho most conscious of evil within, nnd
Miss Carrington was ono who had often
cried with St, Paul, "Tho good that I
would 1 do not." Hor heart felt very
noft toward the willful little girl who had
brought such misery on herself and oth
crs, even before she entered tho room, but
her first sight of Missie gave her a feel
Ing of surprise. Sho said afterward sho
ceased to wonder at Aluslle's infatuation
for tho child, for she was certainly a be
witching llttlo creature.
The pink ribbons In Missle's dainty
dressing gown were not pinker than her
cheeks, her bluo eyes shono with un
easy light, nnd tho soft, fair hair lay in
dellcnto rings above the pretty, childish
face ; her frightened, appealing look would
have touched a colder heart than Miss
Carrington's, nnd It was wltfi real affec
tion that sho bent over her. Rut Missle's
tender conscience made her shrink from
her aunt's kisses,
"Please don't be so kind to me, Aunt
Diana every ono is, and It is not right."
"My dear llttlo girl, we none of us
want to seo our poor little butterfly brok
en on the wheel ; we nro far too sorry for
you. Of course, you have been a naughty
child; you.havo been sotting your small
world on fire, nnd have got your pretty
wings singed. Well, now you have learn
ed wisdom through painful experience,
and we must all help you to get the les-
"I don't think any one was ever so
wicked as I, Aunt Diana," sighed Missie.
"Well, my dear," returned her aunt,
briskly, "it is not my concern to go about
weighing my neighbor's trespasses In a
balance; I don't fancy human scales
would be nicely adjusted ; but I am quite
sure of one thing that I was a very
naughty child myself the red-cheeked ap
ples I stole gave me moral Indigestion
It was Impossible to look grave over
this ; Alison's merry laugh was Infectious.
Miss Carrington stayed a few more min
utes, questioning Missie about her arm,
and talking kindly to her, until the poor
child was quite happy and at her ease.
"I don't know what it is," sho said
that night, when Alison gave her the
good-night kiss; "you all seem trying to
make me believe that I have not been
naughty at all, and that there is nothing
"I thought forgiveness meant that," re
turned Alison, simply; "you know how
the Bible speaks of sins blotted out
that means the page is white again oue
can write freshly across the blank."
There never was a merrier supper table
than the one at The Holms that night;
ltto-as it was, Poppie sat up for it, and
no one rebuked her for her chatter. Rudel
kept up the character of a bashful school
boy; but even he relaxed his wide-eyed
gravity when Otter was admired and kind
inquiries made after Sulky. Aunt Diana
knew the way to a boy's heart; though
she never had a boy of her own; but
there are some unmarried women whose
larue natures can embrace n whole world
of little ones, and Btich a one was Aunt
