CHAPTF.U XVI. (Continued.)
The Duke of Harborough was making
an almost regal procession with his now
daughter-in-law. lie had come up ju-t
as Audrey was clasping her mother'
hand. Mid when he caught sight of the
rui's face he whistled.
"Jack, my boy, you're In luck." he
cried, and then nothing would do but
Audrey must walk away with hlra and
lie introduced all round.
The girl la a lady from head to foot.
nd what a face! Charity girl. Indeed!
"Where's Gladys, I wonder?" and then
the wicked old man chuckled to himself
a he meditated a plan to ar.uoy I.ady
So with Audrey, laughing heartily at
lib, sallies, he walked straight up to his
slaughter, whose cold eyes were resting
'with distinct approval on the slender,
white-robed figure.
'"Gladys, my dear, here is some one you
must know. This young lady has quite
taken my heart by storm ! I don't be
lieve she will leave a whole one when she
jroe away."
"That is easily understood." remarked
"Lady Daleswater, graciously giving Au-drej-
sincere admiration, "but you have
not told me this young lady's name,
"No! Haven't IT Dear me! Well,
yotx really ought not to need an introduc
tion, since she is your new sister. Jack's
wife. Come along, my dear. I want to
take you up to that old woman over
there; she is not beautiful, but she Is
levet, and that is a great thing."
Shells. Fraser had not been with Lady
Daleswater when the duke brought up
his son's wife, but she knew in a moment
that her irival had come on to the field,
aud slie could scarcely contain her bit
ter hatred and jealousy, as she heard
nothing but admiration expressed for Au
drey all the way round.
She was carefully attended by her cava
lier, the Honorable Lancelot Twist, broth
er to the Earl of Daleswater, who was
as strongly inclined in favor of obtaining
her fortune as his sister-in-law could de
sire. He was a mean little man. very
3ike the earl in appearance, but Sheila did
not care about this ; she only remembered
li is rank, and was glad to hare some one
to attend her so closely, if only to show
the world that she was not breaking her
heart for Lord John Glendurwood. Miss
Fraser walked straight up to the lovely
girlish form.
"I am very glad to see you," she said,
with great warmth and extending her
delicately gloved hand. "You have not
jaite forgotten me. Lady John, I hope?"
"Oh, no, I have not forgotten you,
Vna Fraser," she said, simply, and then
ahe added no more, for to say she was
(lad to see Sheila would have been to
otter an untruth, and Audrey was sot
versed sufficiently in the world's ways to
speak falsely.
Jack had explained very gently to Au-
-drey that there was a quarrel going on
; between his mother and his sister.
"It is all about some nonsense, dar
ling," he had said, "but mother is quite
right to hold her own. Gladys has a
'wretched temper. I I am afraid you
must Dot expect her to be too kind to
"That is why she looked so coldly at
rue when -your father took me up to in
troduce me, then?"
"Be ready for me at five, darling. I
shall take you for a drive then. What
are you going to do all day while I am
Vkti looking at these horse awith Sin
4irr "i am going shopping with mother, but
I will be ready and waiting for you by
What long, happy, sunny days those
mere. It seemed to Audrey as though the
hoars were not half long enough to cram
la all the delights that came following
one another so quickly.
"If only Miss Irons and the matrons
oould see me now. How funny it all is!
I have often beard some of the older
girls say that when I first went to the
heme I was supposed to be very lucky,
lecause Lady Biddulph was going to look
after me, but I never thought my luck
-would be as great as it is. Mother, Miss
J'raser is very kind to me."
Constance's brow contracted slightly.
"There is no reason why she should not
le, Audrey."
"Is she really going to marry that hor
Tid little man, mother?"
"Who Is the horrid little man?" In
quired Jack's voice at the door. "Don't
gc, Constance, dear," Jack continued, kiss
ing 'her affectionately, and then sitting
down beside his wife and gathering her
Ixxiily into his arms.
"This la the children's hour, so I think
I had better take my departure," smiled
Mrs. Fraser. "Audrey, if you are going
to this ball to-night, have an hour's rest.
Ho, Jack, there Is no occasion to come
down with me."
Itut Lord John Insisted.
"Didn't she look lovely?" be exclaim
ed, as they went down the stairs. "Ev
erybody Is raving about her, my little
darling! Oh, Con, dear, what have I
done that I should be so blessed?"
"Take care of her, Jack. Be good to
tier always I" The words broke from the
mother's lips suddenly.
"Do you not trust me?" be asked, re
proachfully, and then he looked at her
aently. Do you Know, you are very
pale and worn, Mrs. Fraser? What have
you been doing to yourself? I tblnk I
must have a long cnat wun you, maa
Constance Fraser put her hand on the
vcunf man's arm.
"Jack, dear Jack, don't you know what
my pale face means?" she said, so low as
almost to be Inaudible.
"Nothing very serious, I am sure," he
answered quickly, though be felt a sudden
oanii at bis heart.
"Do not let her know," she whispered,
wery softly ; "her life Is so happy, do not

-"Whem rears hence you shall still be
alive, and, heaven grant, strong and well.
Constance, why do you talk like this,
"Jack, my friend ! Ay, you have been
that, my true, good, stanch, faithful
friend! My son, the tiat has gone forth;
my days are numbered. This summer
will be my last. I no, I will say no
more ! us go on !"
Jack Glendurwood' face worked for
a moment; he half yielded to a strong
Impetu within him to break out into pas
sionate words of sorrow. Incredulity,
binding promises of everlnsting. never
changing love, but the ashen pallor of
hei face, the expression round her lips,
checked him. He led her gently to her
Constance tried to spenk vaguely, but
the tears rushed to her eyes, and she sank
back Into her carriage and gestured to
him to let her drive on unmolested.
The season ran on Its appointed course.
The curiosity that had raged about the
romantic Glendurwood marriage had had
plenty of time to wane, but In Its place
came the celebrity which Audrey's un
doubted beauty and natural charm ob
tained for her. Constance Fraser orderd
her trunks packed.
"I wish I could go with you." Audrey
said, sorrowfully, as she sat watching
these proceedings the last day her mother
spent in town.
"Why, you little baby," laughed Con
stance. "Audrey, my dearest one," she
said gently, "I am going to preach you
a sermon. Heaven has been very good
to you. You have been given all that in
this world constitutes happiness; you
must not grow used to this good fortune
always remember, my darling, that at
any moment t could slip from you far
easier than It came to you. Tut before
you the memory of Jean Thwalt and oth
ers, who have not one tithe of the glad
ness that has been bestowed on you, and
never forget that however high your rank,
you have certain duties to perform that
art as necessary to your position as they
are beneficial to your character. One
of your duties is to do all to advise
your husband wisely, to act with thought,
and to keep the good will of those around
you. Lady Gladys Daleswater is his sis
ter. No matter how cold and unsympa
thetic she may seem, you must try and
cement by every means in your power the
bend that exists between brother and sis
ter. I like to think of my Audrey doing
good in her life, not growing discon
tented, dissatisfied and luxurious, as, alas,
sj many fortunate girls do. Now, my ser
mon Is over; was it very hard to bear?"
"Mother," Audrey's eyes were lumin
ous through their tears, "how sweet and
good you are! If you are always with
me, perhaps some day I, too, shall be like
ycu. and "
"I am content with you as you are,"
the mother answered, fervently, as she
held the slender form close to her heart.
ami clung to it. "God bless my darling
God guard and shield her now and for
ever !"
Jack Glendurwood had beeu astonish
ed, but nevertheless much pleased, when
his sister suggested that Audrey and
himself should join her party on board
the Daleswater yacht, Mona, for the
Ccwes week.
'I think I shall have a pleasant party,
and you may enjoy It," she had said.
slowly, with a cold smile. And Jack ac
cepted the invitation promptly.
"When do you think of going?" he
asked, and then, when he learned the
date, he puckered his brow. "What a
nuisance. I thought Cowes would be well
over before the twelfth, and I promised
Sinclair I would run up north for about
three days with him."
"And take Audrey with you?" asked
Lady Daleswater. "Bather unwise, I think,
my dear Jack, bis sister observed ; a
child like that won't enjoy seeing the
blids slaughtered, and to leave her alone
la a gloomy Scotch Bhooting box is little
short of cruel, lou had better arrange
that she comes with me, and you can join
her as soon as possible."
So It was settled. Audrey felt low
and depressed when she heard of the ar
rangement ; she had not been parted from
her husband for more than a few short
hours, and the prospect of being away
alone with the Daleswaters, Jack In
Scotland, and the duchess and her mother
in Germany, was really almost a painful
The Mona was quite a large-sized ves
sel, fitted up in the most extravagant
fashion. Audrey found the cabin allot
ted to her equally as dainty as her bed
room in London. She was much pleased
to see among the new arrivals a Mrs.
Hungerford, whom her mother had always
rogarded as a warm, stanch friend, and
she Immediately sat down beside this
lady, who sincerely liked and admired her.
Sheila was flirting with several men,
but ber cold eyes went sharply across the
water every now and then as though In
search of some one.
The gong sounded for dinner, when ris
ing, they went together along the polished
deck to the cabin stairs.
Just as they reached the bottom they
came upon a man who drew back with a
respectful gesture to let them pass. Au
drey was laughing softly at some witty
remark of her companion's, but the latter
died away a she beheld this man's face.
The sight of the man took Audrey back
to the past. At once the memory of a
horrible few moments returned to her
mind. She saw again the cold, cheerless
coppice, the wavy, empty trees and was
struggling to escape from the Insulting
presence of the valet Downs. What was
this man doing on board the Mona?
Audrey was not sorry when she could
retire to her cabin; she felt tired and
dreary: If it had not been for Mrs. Hun
gerford and Willie Fullerton she would
havs been wretched all the evening. Bev
erley had made no effort at conversation
with her, for which she was glad. To
ber joy, when she went below she found
a telegram from Jack waiting for her,
brought across from the shore. The sum
mer moon was high In the heaven whett
the rest of the party sought their berth.
"Good night, Mr. Fullerton; good
night, Mr. Boehfort," cried Sheila, s h
dt-aivndcd the stair, leaving the two men
on deck. Beverley sauntered away and
lowns followed him. Willie Fullerton,
left alone, gated after him curiously.
"If that chap 1 not nn out ami out
M-oundrcl I'll eat my hat," he reflected.
"His servant look Just another, too!"
If Willie Fullerton could have heard
the whispered conversation that passed
hurriedly between master and man he
would have considerably augmented hi
belief. The Interview wa brief, but
when they separated they seemed to have
arrived at a good conclusion.
"To-morrow night, when I give the
signal ; and, remember, let there lie no
mistake!" was Beverley's Inst word.
"Never fear!" returned Downs, savage
ly "I'll make no mistake!" and with
that he walked swiftly away.
Audrey woke very early the next morn
ing with a start. The sun wa just ris
ing; she went to the ort and gated
out. How pretty and picturesque It was!
She longed for Jack to be there to share
hei pleasure.
"Never mind, there will be a letter this
morning," she consoled herself.
This comforted her, and then she wa
given his letter. The cheery, tender, fond
word consoled her beyond all descrip
tion, and when she came to the postscript
she felt her heart leat lightly again.
"I am delighted to hear that Willie
Fullerton Is on board; I am urt you
will like him." Jack wrote. "He is quite
the nicest young man of my acquaint
ance. Tell him for me that I expect him
to do me a good turn, and look well after
my dear, sweet little wife. Ho will make
an excellent cavalier, and le delighted be
yond measure to attend so lovely a lady.
Iook for me at the end of the week. Till
then, and alwavs, your devoted husband.
She confided to her new friend the
message her Jack had sent, and was
greatly pleased at Willie's delight.
"And now I hoe you will begin to
look upon me as a friend, I.ady John?
I am sure you will if Glendurwood does,"
he said eagerly.
Sheila was almost gleeful over this
"flirtation." as she insisted on calling it.
"I always knew she ws a bold thing."
she declared to Beverley In an alslo;
"but I never thought she was so bad as
this. She Is carrying on most shame
fully with Willie Fullerton."
There was a strained expression In
Beverley's smile. He, too, was watch
ing the boy and girl away at the far end
of the deck.
"And she will not even speak one word
to me !" he thought to himself, the hot
tide of jealousy running like fire in bis
The day progressed. The dance was
to begin about 1 o'clock. Just about din
ner hour Willie Fullerton came to Au
drey. "I am In despair. Lady John." he said,
really quite mournfully. "I shall not be
able to claim you for our promised dance.
I am compelled to run ashore. My moth
er has sent for me on important business.
She is an invalid, poor old dear, and I
must go."
"Of course you roust," said Audrey,
"but I shall miss you very much Indeed.
Mr. Fullerton. I don't think I shall
dance many time to-night."
Lady Daleswater' dance wa declared
to be enchanting. The fairy lights, tho
delicious music, the select company, noth
ing was wanting in any one's estimation
but Audrey's. She was very dull and
very lonely.
"Go and dance, my dear," advised Mrs,
nungerford. -hecrily. But to the great
disappointment of most of the men pres
ent. Lady John Glendurwood persistently
refused to join the dancers.
"Posing!" sneered Mr. Fairfax to
Sheila. "The girl Is as big a coquette
as she is a humbug!"
Lady Daleswater did not pay too much
attention to her sister-in-law. For the
first time in her arrogant career the
countess was suffering from Jealousy.
Why should this girl, this nobody, with
all sorts of probable disagreeables hang
ing to her childhood, why should she be
queen of the situation, while she, Gladys,
Countess of Daleswater, was put on one
side and forgotten?

New Method nf tlraftlaa.
Bo for a meeting of the Aiuerlcnn
I'oinologlcal Society the following meth
od of grafting was ilesvrHed by n
gentleman from Colorado, who stated
that It was the most successful meth
od that he had employed In top work
ing old orchards, and that It could be
used on brnnchiM n largo a four
Inches In diameter with groat success.
It Imp reuse one as being jiosslhly N-t-tcr
than ordinary cleft grafting for
Inrge stocks, from the fact that tho
surface of the nnlon were all smooth
and tho scions held more firmly. The
method of procedure Is a follows; Af
ter determining whore the graft had

fine saw ntul the cut made In the side
of the stock, ns shown nt "A." This
I then cleaned out with a knlfo, a

used for this purpose, outline of which
I shown nt "K." The scion Is cut as
Is usual In deft grafting and Is driven
with some little force Into the groove
of the stock ns shown at "C" and In
cross section at "D." It wll be found
that after this graft has been driven In
It can only te pulled out by using con
siderable force Hint It Is held much
more firmly than lu the ordinary cleft
graft All wounds should lo covered

It la economical to feed only as nmoh
as may be required. If too much car
bonaceous material le fed to an ani
mal the excess will bo a loss, for the
reason that the animal will usslinllate
and appropriate only tho actual amount
necessary for the pun required by
,the system; and even when the farmer
feeds liberally of cftrlsinaeeous material
jhe may starve his animal. If they do
not receive nitrogenous food, for which
reason It may bo noticed that on some
farms, where the stock Is Morally pro
vided with certain kinds of food, tho
animals are not thrifty, the young on
do not grow, and the farmer I annoyed
at the unsatisfactory results of what
j he supitosea Is good management, w hen

ujMjn the proportions of those elements

for unless a perfect knowledge of the
composition of feeding stuffs la gained
by the farmer he may feed at a loss and
derive but little benefit from his stock.
Padlaraad Seed.
The achievements of the plant breed
ers lu the development of pedigree
seeds are quite wonderful, considering
the dllllcultles of fixing permanently
characteristics resulting from hybridi
zation. For instance, when species of
rvo with different tyixs of heads are
crossed It Is found that the female
parent Is neither alone nor most prom
inent when exerting its Influence on
the product and Its progeny. In about
one-half of the plants of the first gen
eration of rye crosses the type of head
and form of seed of the male parent
were prevalent, while In the other half
tho same characteristics of the female
predominated. In the second genera
tion the Individuals split up Into groups
of either one tyiie or the other. One
fourth of tho number of individuals
showed the spike characteristics of the
female parent, one-fourth thoHe of the
male parent and one-half Intermediate
forms. Agricultural EpltomlsL
Feeding- 'he Dairy Cow.
What Is tho proper amount of food
for a cow 7 Such an Inquiry caunot be
mitisfactorllv answered, as each cow Is
an Individual, having peculiarities of
disposition. There are preferences
among animals for certain foods, as
'they have their likes and dislikes. A
cow may have an excellent appetite to
day and refuse to eat but little of ber
food to-morrow. Of the various foods,
however, a cow will eat from 40 to 00
pounds of mature corn ensilage, with
from 6 to 10 pounds of grain wttn me
iinllHge, which may be given In place
of the bran. Of clover hay, a cow may
le allowed to eat as much as she
wishes. The ensilage may be reduced
mid mora eraln trlven. ground. If pre

the feeding of a cow. Each cow must

No animal can remain at a stands till
without loss to Its owner. If the aul

food are wasted. If the animal loses
only a pound In weight, then the farm

but the time lost cannot lie recovered.

Don't put the eggs In a deep box,
whore the ben will be forced to Jump
down on the eggs to get at them, for
she will be pretty apt to break some
of them. Should any of the eggs be
broken at any time, the balance of
them should be washed as soon as dis
covered, for a smeared egg will not
hatch. The proper dimensions for a
box In which to set a sitting hen are
about 12 Inches square. If smaller It
Is apt to crowd the hen and the eggs
are liable to be broken; If larger, the
eggs will scatter and will not all be
Incubated. The box should be placed
