The young heiress was much upset,
nd, besides this, she had felt for some
time what she would have termed an
rachlng void" for want of a confi
dante. A confidante had always been
a necessity to her, as It generally Is
to persons much taken up with them
selves. Her last devoted friend, the
depositary of her secret troubles, pro
jects, and love affairs, had lately mar
ried a brutal husband who had taught
Ills bride to laugh at Mary Dacre's
storms In a teacup and two-penny-halfpenny
tragedies; so her heart was
mpty, swept and garnished, and
ready for the occupation of another
"faithful friend and counsellor," when
fate threw Hope Desmond In her way.
In Miss Dacre's estimation, she was
eminently fitted to fill the vacant post ;
there was just the difference of station
between them which would make the
confidences of the future Baroness Cas
tleton flattering to their recipient, to
whom also her friendship might be
useful. There was a short pause. Miss
Desmond's eyes looked dreamy, as If
she were gazing in spirit at some dis
tant scene, and not as if she were
quivering with impatience for the
revelations about to be made to her.
The silence was broken suddenly by
somewhat unconnected exclamation
from Miss Dacre: "He Is certainly
"Who? Lord Everton?" asked Hope.
"Lord Everton! Nonsense! He
might have been forty years ago. I
mean Captain Lumley. There is
something knightly in his look and
bearing: one could imagine him go
ing down Into the lion's pit for one's
Slove, and that sort of thing."
"I do not think I could," smiling.
"'I do not fancy Captain Lumley or
any other logical modern young man
doing anything of the kind. He might,
if extra-chivalrous, bring you a dozen
new pairs to replace the one you had
"Ah, my dear Miss Desmond, I fear
you are not Imaginative. Or perhaps
you have only known prosaic men."
"I have only known very few of any

Just now, and I have no friend near

dear Miss Desmond, I feel attracted to
you. I am certain you could be a
"faithful friend, and silent as the

any use to you," said Hope, seeing she
paused for a reply.
"I knew you would. I am so tired
of feeding on my own heart! 1 want
a friend. Now, 1 dare say you are sur
prised to see how earnestly I advocate
Hugh Saville's cause. Ah. there is
little tragic story which will color my
"Indeed!" with awakening Interest.
"I trust your life will be free from all
' Ah. no; that It cannot be. You
must know that I bhw a great deal of
Richard and Hugh Savllle when I was
a little girl; my father worried a great
deal about politics, and I used to live
at the Court all the summer, that he
might see me sometimes (my mother
died when I was a baby, you know).
"Well, as soon as I left off playing
with dolls and began to feel, I was ih
loye with Hugh; and he was very
fond of me. Then ho went to sea, and
we did not meet for years, until after
I had been presented and had refused
lialf a dozen men. I shall never for
set our first meeting when he return
ed from oh, I don't know where. He
was so pleased to see me; but soon,
very soon. I saw that he who was the
light of my eyes was the one man of
all I had met who resisted the attrac
tion I generally exercise' Here she
paused In her voluble utterance and
pressed her handkerchief to her eyes.
Hope was bo .amazed at these unex
pected revelations that the bright col
or rose In her cheek It seemed to
Sier delicate nature almost Indecent
to thus lay bare one's secret experi
ences to a stranger and a look of
embarrassment made her drop her
eyes; but these symptoms were lost
on her companion, who thoroughly
enjoyed holding forth on the delight
ful topic of self and exhibiting her
own fine points.
"That must have been very try
( lng," said Hopo, feeling that she ought
to pay something.
"Awful, my dear Miss Desmond. By
the bye, may I call you Hope? It Is a
good omen, your name."
"Certainly, Miss Dacre."
"Well, my dear Hope, I nearly went
mad; but It la curious that I never
looked better. I flirted wildly with
every one; still of course Hugh knew
quite, well that I waa desperately In
lovs with hlra."
"Did he? How very trying! Per
haps he did not."
"Oh, yes, he did; and of course I
did all sorts of wild things to Bhow r
did not care."
"Yes, I understand."
"Then I had that disturbance with
my father about poor Lord Balmulr.
I behaved rather badly. I did In
tend to marry htm, but I couldn't!
And so we went abroad; and I felt
better. But It was an awful blow
when I found that Huga was abso
lutely married! Just think of It!
and to a mere adventuress, a nobody!
such an ambitious man! He will
get sick of her, you may be quite
"Why?" asked Hope, looking ear
nestly at her. "Is he very change
able?" "No, not at all; he Is as steady as
a rock, and very proud. But most men
tire of their wives, especially when
they have brought them no advan
tages. I never thought Hugh Savllle
could fall In love and forget himself.
Now, when I saw George Lumley, his
likeness to his cousin made my heart
beat. I soon saw that he was a good
deal struck with me, and I believe I
could love him passionately If If
memory was not so Importunate. He
is very charming; and why should I
not grow young again? for one does
feel awfully old when one has no love
affair on. Don't you think George
Lumley is very much taken with
"I suppose that sort of attraction la
more perceptible to Its object than to
any one else." returned Hope' Desmond,
hesitatingly. She had grown pale and
grave, while Miss Dacre rattled on:
"Then, you see, when I heard about
Hugh. saving that man's life, I thought
I might make use of the story to wake
up Mrs. Saville's good feelings. It
would be rather an heroic proceeding
if I were to reconcile the mother, son,
and wife. George Lumley said I wa3
"What! did he. too, know all about
Hugh I mean Mr. Savllle?" cried
Hope, more and more disturbed.
"Oh, yes; we have quite interesting
talks about him. I tell him confiden
tially how fond I Was of Hugh, and
then, of course, he wishes he was iij
Hugh's place: so we get on very well.
He Is always coming over to the
Court, except when he goes away for
a few days' shooting. I am not quite
sure my father likes it. You have
never met Lord Castleton? He Is very
nice rather old-fashioned. Lord Ev
erton was a great friend of his In ear
ly days. Now. my dear Hope, you
know my heart history; and you will
notice Captain Lumleys manner. You
know the Lumley estates are rather
encumbered, and I dare say he feels
Bhy of approaching me poor fellow!
but. if I like him that Is of no conse
quence." "I am always interested In what
you like to tell me, Miss Dacre," said
Hope, with some hesitation, as If
choosing her words, "but T am not
very observant, and some older and
wiser person would be more deserving
of your confidence than T am."
"Nonsense! I could not tell all
these things to a stltf old frump! Now,
mind you ask Mrs Savllle If you may
come and practice every morning for
the concert. 1 intended to ask her,
but my anxiety about Hugh quite put
It out of my head. That Is always my
way: I never think of myself." Hope
was too bewildered with her energet
ic rapidity to reply, so Miss Dacre
went on: "She has really no feeling at
all. She is fearfully hard. I am
afraid she will never forgive Hugh.
But I will do all I can."
"If you will take my advice, Miss
Dacre," said Hope, earnestly, "you will
leave the matter alone. The less Mrs.
Savllle hears of her son for the pres
ent, the better. Attempts to force
him on her notice only harden her."
"Well, perhaps so; but you must
back me up whenever you can."
"Trust me, I will."
"Now I had better go home. I dare
Bay Captain Lumley Is waiting for me
on the way. I am so glad you made
me open my heart to you. It is such
a comfort to have some one to speak
"Thank you," returned Hope.
"So good-by, You are looking quite
pale and 111. Be sure you ask Mrs.
Savllle about the concert." And Miss
Dacre departed through the open win
dow. Hope threw herself on the sofa as
soon as she was gone, and sat there
lost In thought, her eJbow on the
cushion, her head on her hand, un
conscious of the large tears which,
after hanging on her long lashes,
rolled slowly down her cheeks. What
unhapplness and confusion Hugh Sa
ville's headstrong disobedience had
created! and for what? Perhaps only
for b temporary whim; perhaps only
to regret It, as Miss Dacre said. The
thought of tbeso things depressed tor.
Some Incident in her own life perhaps
made her more keenly alive to the
troUblo In Mrs. Savllio's; for Hope
Desmond was an exceedingly attrac
tive girl, graceful, gentle, with flashes
of humor and fire, suggesting delight
ful possibilities. The day had been
trying, for her good friend Mr. Raw-
son had not brought too flourishing an
account of nor affairs, and she did not
enjoy the idea of being a companion
all her life. At this stage of her re
flections a shadow fell across her, and,
looking Up, Bho Baw Georgo Lumley
contemplating hor with much Interest.
She was always pleased to see his
bright, good-looking faco, and, smiling
on him kindly, "aid,. "You have missed
Miss Dacre. She has Just gone."
"Are you all right, Miss Desmond?"
he asked, with much Interest, and
drawing a step nearor.
"Yes, or course," she returned; then
becoming suddenly aware that her face
was wet with tears, sho blushed viv
idly and put up her handkerchief to
"The terrible effect of a private in
tervlew with one's legal advisor," she
said, with a brave attempt to .laugh.
"He must have brought you bad

IIlHtory of n Continent.
Strange have been the historical
vicissitudes of the antarctic continent,
the Century says. A figment of geogra
phic fancy evolved by Ortelius in 1570,
the great Capt. Cook thought that he
had demolished it in 1773.
Resuscitated by an American sealer,
N. B. Palmer, In 1820, It took form
and definite location explorations of
1840, supplemented by those of
D'Urville, Enderby and Kemp.
Ross eliminated Wilkes' discoveries
from his charts, but the continent
was theoretically and scientifically re
constructed by the great physicists,
Carpenter and Murray.
Slowly evolving Its tangible shape
through the discoveries of the German
Drygalskl, the Scotsman Bruce, the
Belgian Gerlache, the Frenchman
Charcot, the Norwegian Laraen and
the Englishman Scott, through the
late labors of Shackleton, the antarc
tic continent now appears to extend
from Victoria Land to Enderby Land
and from Wilkes Land across the
south pole to Palmer Land.
Taken all In all, Shackleton's dis
coveries are the most Important and
extensive ever made within the ant
arctic circle. He has determined the
location of the magnetic pole, largely
Increased the known area of the south

Thumps In plg3 Is caused by a sur

thumping Is due to violent beating of

of the sides and flanks of the animal.
Often It is so violent that tho whole
body trembles and shakes with the
movements. In aggravated cases the
