1JY WILLIAM HLACK
Lite one evening In Atrll. In n private
sitting room on tlin first floor of n hotel
In Albcrmarlo street, a member of the
Ilrlttsh House of Commons was lying
back In nn easy chair, having Just begun
to rend, In nil afternoon Journal, nn ar
flcle nbiint himself, lie was n man ap
proaching fifty, with bnlr become prema
turely intte allrer white. This win what
he was reading:
"Hy bin Amendment of last night,
which was defeated by nn overwhelming
majority, the member for Pin spool has
onco more called attention to the unique
position which ho occupies In contempo
rary politic. Consistent only In hla
hopeless Inconsistency, and only to be
reckoned on for tho wholly unexpected,
one wonders for what particular purpose
the electors of Slngpool ever thought of
tending Mr. Wlntorbourne to Parlla
went. A politician who 1 nt once a
furious Jingo In foreign affairs and an
"ultra-revolutionary at home; an upholder
of the divine right and liberties of the

It I' true. Perhaps that Is what I nm
like. I wonder if that Is how I appear
Ho heard n footstep outside, and Im
mediately thrust away the newspaper
from him. The next moment the door
of the room wa opened, and the frame
work allowed a living picture, that of n
young girl of eighteen, singularly tall
and strikingly fair, who stood there hesi
tating, timid, half laughing.
"1.00k," sho said. "Is It your Idea)"
"I It your Idea?" ho repeated peevish
ly. "Yolande, you are getting worse and
worse. Why don't you say, 'Is this what
you meant) "
"I this what yon meant) sho said

promptly, anif with a slight foreign ne
cent "Como to the mirror, child, and put

She dM a he wa bW. stepping over
to the fireplace, awl standing before the
otd-fasfcfoued mirror, a sho adjusted the
wide-brimmed Uuben hat over tho ruddy
roUI of her hair.' For thl wa an ex
periment cotume. and It had some sug
gestion of novelty.
The plain gown waa of a uniform
cream white of aome rough towel-like
substance that seemed to cling naturally
to the tall and graceful flgure. and It
was touched hero and there with black
velvet. She wore no ornament but a
thick silver necklace round her throat
and a plain silrer belt round her waist.
"I It what you meant)" she repeated,
turning to him from the mirror.
"Oh, yes," ald he, rather reluctantly.
I I thought It would suit you. Iiut
yon ee. Yolande, to drive lu the park
In London wouldn't it be a little con
spicuous?' Her eye were filled with astonish
ment; hla rather wandered away nerv
ously to the table.
"Hut. papa, I don't understand you.
Everywhere else you are always wishing
mo to wear the brightest and lightest of
colors. I may wear what I please
and that Is ouly to please you, that I
what 1 care about only anywhere else
If wo are going for a walk or a drive at
Oatlands Park, I cannot please you with
enough bright colors; but here, In Lon
don, everything Is too conspicuous! And
this time I wa bo anxious to please you
all your own Idea; not mine at all.
Hut what do I care)" She tossed the
Hubeus hat on to the couch that wa
near, "Come! What Is there about n
dress) It will do for some other plnce,
not so dark and smoky as London. Come
alt down, papa you do not wish to go
away to the House yet!"
"Well, now, MU Invelgler, Just listen
to this," said he, laying hold of her by
both her small ears. "Don't you think
It prudent of mo to ahow up a often a
I can In the House, bo that my good
friend In Slngpool mayn't begin to grum
' bio about my being away ao frequently)
And why nm I away) Why do I neglect
my duties) Why do I let the Hrltlsh
Empire glide on to Its doom) Why but
that I may take a wretched school girl
for her holldaya and show her things she
can't understand; and plow through mu
couma and picture galleries to fill a rolud
that l no better "than a sieve) Just
think of It. Tho British Empire going
headlong to the mischief all for tho
ake of on empty-headed achool girl!
- "JDo you know, papa, I nm very glad
to hear that)" she said, quietly, and aha
'at on the hearth rug poforo him, "for
now I think my dream will aoon be com
"My dream. The ambition of my
ife," wid she, seriously. "It Is all I
M TMZ I
wih for and hopo for. Nothing else
nothing eNe In too world. It Is to make
mjself Indispensable to you. Listen now,
papa. Surely It la a shame that you
have wasted so much time on me,
through so many years alwaya (.timing
to seo me and take mo away. I have
mom sense now; I have been thinking;
I want to bo Indispensable to you; I
want to be In London with you al
ways; and you shall never have to run
nwny Idling, and you shnll never hnve to
think that I am wearying for youSwhen
I am always with you In London, That
Is it now; I wish to bo your prlvato sec
retary." "No, no, Yolande," he said, nervous
ly. "Iindon won't do for you It It
wouldn't do nt all. IWt think of it
"Pnpa. what other member of Parlia
ment, with so much busbies as you have.
Is without a secretary) Why should
you answer all tho letter yourself)
For me I will learn politics very quick
ly; I am sturylng hard. And Just to
think Hint you have uever allowed ma to
hear you speak In tho House! When I
come to London the ladles whom I sec
will not belle' i that I have never onco
been In the House. They know all the
speakers; they have heard all tho great
men; they spend tho whole of tho even
ing there, and have many como to seo
them all In politic. Well, you see,
papa, what a burden It would bo taking
off your baud. You would not always
havo to como homo and dlno with me,
and wasto so much of tho evening In
reading to me. Then all tho day here,
busy with your letter. Oh, I assure you
I would make prettier compliment to
your constituent than you could think
"They seem to think there," ho said,
with a sardonic smile, and he glanced
at tho newspaper, "that the country
would be better off without me."
It was too lato to recall this unfortu
nate speech. The moment he had spoken
she reached over and took up the Journal,
and found her father's name staring her
in the face.
"I It true, Yolande)" he anld, with a
laugh. "I that what I am like)"
As site read, Yolande tried at first to
be grandly indifferent contemptuous.
Ami then, In spite of herself, tear rose
slowly ami filled the soft gray-blue eyes
though she had kept her head down,
vainly trying to hide them. And then
mortification at her weakness made her
angry, and she crushed up the paper
twice or thrice, and hurled It into the
fire; nay, she seized hold of the poker
and thrust and drove the offending Jour
nal Into the very heart of the coals. And
then sho rose, proud and Indignant, and
with a to of her pretty dead, she said;
"It is enough time to waste oxer such
folly. Perhaps thep oor man ha to
support a family; but he need not write
such stupidity as that. Now, papa, what
shall I play for you)"
"I "must lie off to the Home. There
is Just a chance of a division; and per
haps I may be able to get In a few
words somewhere. Just to show tho Blag
pool people that I am not careering about
the Continent with my school girl. No,
no; I will see you safe in your own
room, Yolande; aud your lamp lit, and
everything anug; then Oood night!"
"No. Not until you say, 'I lore you." "
"I love you."
"And I may go out to-morrow morning
as early a ever I like, to buy some (low
er for the breakfast table)"
"I don't like your going out by your
self, Yolande," said be rather hesitating
ly. "You can order flower. You oau
ring and tell the waiter "
"The waiter!" she exclaimed. "What
am I of use for, then, If It Is a waiter
who will choose flower for your break
fast table, papo)"
Take Jane with you, then."
Bo that was settled; and he went up
stair with her to see that her llttlo sil
ver reading lamp was properly lit, and
then bade her tho real last good-night.
Whew he returned to tho sitting room for
his hot and coat, there was a pleased
and contented look on his face.
"Poor Yolande.' he was thinking; "ahe
Is more shut up here than in the country;
but sho will noon hire the liberty of Oat
land Park again."
He hod Just put on hi coat and bat,
and was giving a last look round tho
room to ace If there was anything ho
ought to take wltli him, when there wa
a loud, sharp crash at the window. A
hundred splinters of glass fell on to the
floor; a stone rolled over and over to the
fireplace. He seemed bewllderod only
for a second; and perhaps It was the
startling sound that hod made hi face
grow suddenly of a deadly pallor; the
next aecond noiselessly and quickly
he had stolen from the room, and was
hurriedly descending the stair to the
hall of tho hotoh
The head waiter waa In the ball, alone,
and staring out through tho gins door.
When ho beard some one behind him,
ho turned quickly, mu! (hero wits it ngmi

tall woman, dnrk nud pate, who had u

"1 thought I'd bring you mill" she said,
tauntingly, nud with n alight laugh.
"What do jou want)" ho said, quick
ly, nud under his breath. "Have you im
slinme, woinnnt Come away. Toll tue
what you want!"
"You know what I want," she said
sullenly. "I want tin more lies," Then
an nngrler light hinted up In the Impns
slve, emaciated face. "Who ha driven
me to It, If I have to break a window)
l want no more lie aud hidings. 1 want
you to keep your promise; aud If 1 have
to break oery window lu the House of
('omnium, I will let everybody know.
Whoso fault I It)"
"What madness have you got hold of
uow)" he said, lu tho anuio low voice
and all hi anxiety seemed to be to get
tier away from the hotel. "Come along
and tell me what you want. I suppose
I can guess who sent you. I suppose It
waa not for nothing you came to mako

streets. They asked you to go aud get

"I will take them some money, If you
like," she said, absently. "They are

cheat me with lies aud promises they
don't put me off, and turn me nwny when

cab happened to be passing, be stopped

mado no remonstrance; sho seemed ready
to tin anything he wished,

She got Into the cab quite submissive
ly, and the man wa given tho address,
and nald. Then tho vehicle wa lrlvou
.off; aud ho was left standing on the pave
'ment. still somewhat bow lldered. and not
conscious how hla hands were trembling.
He stood uncertain only for a second
or so, then ho walked rapidly back to
"Has Mis Wlnterbourne'a maid gone
to bed yet)" he asked of the landlady.
"Oh. no. sir! I should think not, sir,"
the buxom person answered; she did not
observe that his face was palo and his
"Will you please tell her, then, that
we shall be going down to Oatlaud Park
agalu to-morrow morning) She must
have everything ready; but she I not to
disturb Mis Wlnterbourne to-night."
Then he went Into tho coffee room,
aud found the head waiter.
"IMik here." said he, "I suppose you
can get a man to put In a pane of glass
In tho window of our sitting room the
first thing In the morning) There has
been some accident, I suppose. You ean
have It done before Miss Wlnterbourne
He stood for a moment apparently list
ening If there was any sound upstairs;
and then he opened the door ngaln aud
went out. Very slowly ho walked away
through the lamp-lit street, seeing abso
lutely nothing of the pasersby. or of tho
rattling rnbs and carriages; and although
ho bent hi steps Westminster-ward It
wa certainly not the affairs of the na
tion that had hold of hi mind. Itather
bo was thinking of that beautiful fair
young life that young life so carefully
and tenderly cherished and guarded, and
all unconscious of this terrlblo black
shadow behind It. The Irony of It! It
was this very night that Yolande had
chosen to reveal to him her secret hope
and ambition; she wa to be always with
him; sho wa to tie "Indispensable;" the
day of her banishment were to lie now
left behind; and the two, father and
daughter, were to be Inseparable com
anions henceforth and forever. And hla
reply) A he walked along the half-do-serted
pavement, anxiously revolving
many thing, and dreaming many dream
nbout what the future might have In
store for her, ami regarding the trouble
and terrible care that haunted his own
life, -tho final summing up of nil hi
doubt and fear resolved Itself Into this
If only Yolande were married! When
he passed Into the House It wa to seek
out his friend, John Shortlauds, whoso
rough common sense and blunt counsel
had before now stood him In good stead
and served to brace up hi unstrung
nerve. The tall, corpulent, big-headed
Ironmaster, he at length found with two
or three companion's. Winterbourno
touched hla friend lightly on the shoul
der. "Can you come outside for a minute)"
