A B)ead Past!
By MRS. LOVCTT CAMERON i
Margaret Grantley sat In the oak-pan-led
mornliiK mom nt Frlerly Hall, mens
nrliiR out ynnls of uiiWe.uiiod calico.
Tlio sunlight c.ime glinting through the
diamond-pnuci orlol window niul fell
upon .her spare, upright tlRurc cased In
olltI black silk, upon lirr pale, smooth
Iinlr. where never n tres liml been known
to wnnder forth from Its appointed place,
Anil upon tho regular, passionless fea
tures that told of an upright nnd thor
oughly well-regulated disposition.
"Anil they ilo say, ma'am," said Han
nah Dawson, who stood with yard meas
ure and huge scissors In front of her
mistress, ready to begin operations upon
tho creamy fabric; "they do say that
poor misguided girl was running wild
over the lipids with this fine city gentle
man, for threo whole days and the best
part of three nights, when they were
seen In the moonlight by half the men
find boys out of the village."
"Ior girl. It Is very sad; we must re
member that she has no mother, and thnt
Iter father Is worse than nothing," said
"Far worse, ma'am, with his poor
cracked head always n running upon
them horrible beetles and lllesl As to
tho mother, poor thing, she was nothing
to regret a village girl, so to speak, not
a lady, by any means."
"A doctor's daughter, was she not,
"Yes. nia'am, but what's a village doc
tor? You can't expect much from that
"No; we must remember to be charita
ble. Hannah," said her mistress gravely.
"All I hope Is," Interrupted Hannah,
"that Mr. Hoy may not get tangled up
there. I'm sure master would break his
heart, and It ain't In no way a suitable
thing for a young gentleman like htm."
A slight frown contracted Margaret
Grantley s smooth brow.
"There, that will do, Hanah." she
said quickly; "fifty-six yards, did you
nay? How many shirts will- that cut
Into? I think you may take It all away
and measure it out for me; I have some
letters I ought to write now."
She dismissed the old servant whose
tongue was, perhaps too free at times.
Tho pale yellow heap at her feet was
carried away, and the oak-paneled room
was a shade more somber after. It had
Hut when she was left alone Miss
Grantley did not betake herself to her
writing table; she sat quite still with her"
clieek upon her hand and with a cloud
upon her brow.
Margaret Grantley had been the mis
tress of her father's house ever since he
had been left a widower, many years
ago. She was the eldest of a once large
family whom death had mown down one
after the other, until only two were left
the eldest and the youngest. Mar
garet was 34 and Hoy was 20. The dif
ference of ago between them did but In
crease the adoration, which was more
that of a mother than a sister, with
which she regarded her young brother.
Tha boy was her Idol her whole heart
was fixed upon him, every hope and am
bition of her life was entered in him.
It was impossible for her Idolized boy,
the heir to old Frlerly Hall and Its Im
poverished revenues, and to his father's
old name, which somehow mutt be raised
from poverty and not dragged further
down by an imprudent match; Impossi
ble that he could be allowed to marry
n half-trained, half-educated child who
bad no uamo but the reflex of her fath
er's talent, and no fortune save tho very
problematical saving of his life of hard
braiu labor. Hoy must marry for wealth
nnd for position: he could not and should
not marry Kitten I.sybourne.
Whilst she was pondering over these
things, a shadow darkened the window,
nnd Hoy came lu from the garden with
out. His face looked gloomy, he flung
himself down Irritably Into an armchair,
nnd his pleasant, boyish face looked
cross nnd disappointed.
"Where have you been, Hoy?" queried
"On a wlkl goose chase," he answered,
"You have been to see Miss Kay
bourne?" "I have."
"And you have not sen her?"
"I have not."
The answers seemed to be wrung from
him, they wcro so savagely growled
forth. The ghost of a smile played about
Miss Grantley'n thin lips, she foreboro to
raise her eyes from some trilling object
the had taken from the table at her
"The young lady, my poor boy, has
found other friends since you have been
"Other friends? What friends "
lie started forward excitedly, wtli
flushed face and angry aye; "she has no
friend but me."
"You poor, silly Hoy! Young ladles
are never constant. Your village beauty
lias been seen about all day In the woods
for days with a stranger handsome
man, I am told. The poor child knows
no better, of course."
"Who dares nay so!" thundered the
boy furiously. "It Is not like you, Mar
guret, to repoat a wickik slander against
n fellow woman; I would not have be
lieved It of you, that you could be so
cruel, so uncharitable!"
And Margaret, In her stiff prim silk
gown, cowered and trembled before him
like a shriveled leaf; to hear such words
tittered by tho voice one lores best on
earth Is almost worse than a deathblow
to a woman.
"I have not deserved this from you,"
ahe gasped, shaken al hit ouce out of
the quiet decorum of years. She cov
ered her face with her hands. Oh, that
eueh cruel words should liavo been said
to her by her boy, for whose good she
And then Roy's heart, which was as
worm as his temper, went out to the
slater who had been as a mother to him.
In a moment he was down at her feet
.with his arms cast round her waist.
"Oh, Margaret, I did not mean to hurt
you, but what you said was cruel; you
do not know Kitten, and you cannot
know me, or you would not bars said
aucu a tblnjr."
Poor, misguided Margarctl It was
not in her to take her boy to her heart,
to nestle his fair, curly head lu her arms
and to kiss away tho nnger out of his
honest gray eyes.
"I must not give wny," she said to
herself; "If I lot him think tue weak ho
will never respect me, or look up to me
again: I should lose my lntlueuco with
him." So all she said was; "Young
people aro always unjust, Hoy, but If
you aro sorry for your wild words, I
will say no more. All I meant was
that It will bo better for you to think
less of Miss I.aybourne, who Is lu uo
way suitable to be your wife."
"I cannot think less of her because
she Is nil the world to me."
"Neither your father nor I will ever
hear of It. It Is your cousin Felicia
whom you must marry, she Is nn heir
ess and a woman of talent and educa
tion. Your uncle Is ready to give her
to yon, so that the money nnd the bar
onetcy may be united. Your father de
sires It earnestly; as to me. It Is tho wish
of my heart. Felicia Is young and hand
some and clever; she unites nil that can
bo wished for In herself It Is to her that
you must look for a wife."
"As long ns I live and ns Kitten I.ay
bourne lives," cried the young man pas
sionately and wildly, 'I will have no other
wife but her."
All the flowers were dashed and drag
gled. Three days of wind and rain storms
had beaten the hearts out of the roses,
their petals lay scattered, dank and
ragged upon the sodden earth. The btrdi
had fgorgotteu to sing, the very sunshine,
as It crept out timidly from behind the
rain clouds, looked pale nnd sickly.
"And a week ago I wan happy!" cried
Kitten aloud, ns sho leant out of her
casement window. "A week ngo the
world was nil golden, a good place to
live In, the days were o full nnd so
short, nnd now they are empty and, oh,
"Kitten, Kitten," cried a voice In the
garden below her, "why will you persist
in huttlng yourself upstairs? Come
down to mo , Kitten, I want to sec you
Hoy Grantley stood beneath her on the
wet grass, his fair curls wet with the
rain, his face ruddy with the wind, his
blue eyes shining with delight because
they had caught sight of her nt last.
"It Is raining," said Kitten without
"No, It has left off; besides you can,
at least, come Into the verandah and talk
to me. Oh, Kitten, It Is more than three
weeks since I have seen you!"
"Is it? It seems like three days."
She left her window and came down
to him In the verandah, as he had said.
Old Kezlah was a stickler for propriety,
and would not allow young Mr. Grant
ley admittance Into the house while her
master was away.
"Why did you shut yourself up all
these, days that I have tried to see you?
What were you doing? Who were you
"To nobody. I was turning the 'Ks
say on Man' Into prose."
"I don't believe that: may I see It?"
"I have torn It up. Hesldcs, you would
not understand It. Hoys don't care
about that kind of thing."
"I wish you would not always call me
n boy, Kitten," he said rather sadly. "I
am twenty one Is no longer a child at
my age; I shall soon be twenty-one, then
I shall be n man, and I shall come and
tell your father that I love you."
"What would be the good of that?"
said Kitten, calmly pulling n Capo Jes
samine flower ruthlessly to pieces with
ber tiny finger tips.
"You kuow I do love you," he persist
ed, bending down to look lutq her face.
"I have heard It very often," she an
swered, with cold Indifference,
"You are but a child, dear." he re-
piled, very softly and tenderly. "You
Uo not understand yet what love means,
but as you grow older you will know and
feel It; nnd then. Kitten, that cold little
faec of yours will light up when it meets
mine, your tiostrt will glow with Joy when
It hear my footsteps, will ache when it
listens In vain for it, and all the world
will seem desolate to you when I am
not there; that is what you will feel by
and by, Kitten, when you are older,"
She laid her hand upon his sleeve.
"Is that what lore Is like, Hoy?" she
naked him eagerly. "That craving for
some one who Is not there, that sick long
ing for the sound of one voice, tho sight
of one fare, without which all the sun
shine seems gone out of the heavens?"
"Oh, you know It. you know It!" he
cried, clasping her hand In both his.
"Dear Kitten, yes, that Is love, and that

Ills voice hroko n Httlo over the words,
Kitten turned iiwny her fnco nud was
"It seems thnt I am mistaken," ho
said wistfully, framing tho words that
should havo boon nit assertion uncon
sciously Into n question.
No answer. Oh, how ho longed to hoar
her refute with the Indignant denial of
affection tho charge which ho mndo
ngalmt her! Why did she not turn round
ngorly nnd cry; "Oh, Hoy, Hoy, you
nro first and dearest nlwnysl" Hut sho
said nothing, only stood with n verted
eyes, stripping tho little green brunch
sho held lu her lingers; the tiny pointed
leaves dropped to the ground one by one,
Just liko Hoy's own hope nud longings,
lying tliere prone, ready to die and with
er nt her feet.
"No one will ever love von ns I do,"
he snld nt Inst, very bitterly; "If he hns
told you so"
She turned awny from him and went
back Into the house through the half
open window that stood behind them.
Hoy went away slowly and sorrowfully;
he was unhappy, but he was young, and
consolations come easily to tho mind of
n man who has his life before Mm.
Meanwhile, Margaret wns not n worn

When her young brother had made that
passionate speech to her threo days w"
It had seeiiied to Miss Grantley thnt tho
time had come when something must be
done to put n chock upon the headstrong
passion of a boy who was ready to rush
upon self destruction.
When Hoy had left she went straight
Into her father's sitting room. Sir Hugh
Grantley wns an old man, and n very
selfish old man. When his daughter
knocked at his library door, he was
asleep doxlng In his great armchair by
the side of the fire, which even lu Juno

The old man frowned. "Your uncle
would not enjoy himself. Mrs. Knox
can't cook for him. He had a French
cook once, his name was Hyacinth. Great
heavens! whnt a cook that man was!

Gregory is used to all that, he's a rich

Gregory said that he would consent to

will have so much money, nnd Hoy will
