V “ Nothing more,” she answered, sadly.

He was somewhat surprised to hear Mr.

entering the room before Mr. W ylie had

1 templating and criticising your ugly fea

It is a melancholy

"W hat is It you want of me?” he ask
"You have a paper which will secure

Mr. W ylie laughed, and slowly rubbed
his hands together as though enjoying a
Joke. " A modest request, certainly,” he
said. “ In the first place, bow do you
know that the letter is genuine?”
"That I have ascertained for myself.
I called upon Messrs. G’room and Fry to
ask whether they were instructed to pay
o>er to Sir Launce a certain sum of
money upon a certain date. O f course, as
I expected, they declined to furnish me
with positive inform ation; but their man
ner convinced me that some such com
munication had passed.
Hand me over
that paper, and I will sign a bond mak
ing over to you one-half the sum that I
may inherit under Mrs. Grierson’s will.”
“ A sum that it is more than probable
you may never touch,” he sneered.
“ A sum which it is more than proba
ble I shall touch before the bells ring
this year out. Oh, I know everything;
I know that Constance Grierson wants
not a month to her twentieth birthday,
nnd that there is not the slightest chance
of her fulfilling the condition under which
she is to inherit the property.”
Mr. W ylie looked amazed; then bent
his brows and gnawed hi» nails again.
During the last few minutes he had been
revolving In his mind a desperate plan,
but as yet it was only half formed.
“ I f what you say be true,” he said,
slowly, “ we are both equally interested
in the girl’s forfeiture of her fortune.
Have you any love for Constance Grier-,

"and more than ever since I heard A r

which, if successful, will be equally to
your advantage as to m ine; and that pa
per shall be yours within sufficient time
to save Penrhyddyn.”
“ What is the plan?” she asked, looking
steadily Into his face.
" I t has come to my knowledge that
Constance, alarmed, doubtless, at the near
approach of the fatal day, is about to
draw a large sum of money— many thou
sands of pounds.”
“ But can she do so?” Inquired Mrs.
“ Yes, with the concurrence of
gunrdian, who is so violently opposed to
the will by which she Is hampered that
he would do anything to nullify its pro
visions. I find that there is no provision
In the will against such a contingency.
Unless I could prove that the principal
of the fortune was being reduced, I am
powerless to check

pounds will materially diminish your

The cheerful drawing room, with Its

their flagging spirits. There was to bs
