CHAPTER XXI. (Continued..
To save Kitten, or Indeed to benefit
her even in the mallest degree, there
wa nothing upon the face of the earth
which Hoy was not prepared to ilo, or
dare, or endure. Hut the question was
not what he would Jo. hut whether Fe
licia would feel disposed to sacrifice her
Velf to save the reputation of a woman,
Whom she knew but slightly, and to
rrbom she owed nothing whatever,
I)r degree, a he thought It over, ai
b pondered upon Margaret'a suggestion,
turning It over and oyer In hi mind, an
entirely new and original Mm flashed
Into lil brain.
Why ahould he not pretend to be en
gaged? And what good reaaon could Fe
licia bring forward to refuse her consent
to a merely nominal engagement which
ahould last a couple of months at the
longest? There really seemed nounng
Impracticable to him In the Idea, f encta
and he had alwaya understood each other
perfectly and were ijulte capable of keep
ing n secret between them.
The more Roy thought about It the
more ainiplc and easy did the whole thing
eem, and the lew It entered Ida mind to
Imagine that his cousin conk! refuse to
co-operate with him.
Felicia Grantley went about all one
summer's day with a cloud upou her
brow, a burJen of horrible uncertainty
la her heart, ami a most alngular letter
from Hoy in her pocket.
Mr. Itaikes had aat for half an hour In
Iter drawing room, balancing hi atlck
between hia knee, and atarlng gloomily
t the carpet.
"What do you think," he asked her
for the twentieth time; "shall I go abroad
with ltrlan, or no?"
"You mutt be the bet Judge of that.
Mr. Itaikes," Felicia had answered cold
ly rcry coldly.
The measured tone struck Ice into hi
ouL II.iw could he possibly guess that
her heart was In a tumult, and that ahe
had a difficulty In keeping back her
Kdgar Itaikes looked at her gloomily
and miserably. She did not care then,
he supposed, whether he stayed or west
It made no difference to her; and how.
Indeed, could he expect it. or now dare to
frame In words the miserable thoughts
that were surging In his heart; be who
was a pauper, to thj girl, whose money
and whose fears of being sought for her
fortune, seemed to stand like a forbid
ding angel between him and his chtefest
"I suppose then I had better go," he
aald miserably, with an inflection that
vraa almost a question in his Tolce, and
ometblng wistful in his eyea which It
was a pity that Felicia waa so engrossed
with her red and yellow allks aa not to
"That is for you to decide," she said
Her Try coldness should, perhaps
hate shown him that she did care, hut
he did not understand that. Few men
know women well enough not alwaya to
take what they aay for what they really
mean. Edgar Itaikes merely supposed
that hia case was hopeless. He shook
hands with her In silence, and left her
nnd when the front door had been slim
med npon his departing footsteps, Feli
cia Bang her silks and her plush on to
the ground, laid her head upon the table
In front of her 'and burst into tears.
All this took place In the morning. And
then came Itoy'a letter, and Felicia went
bout her daily business, her shoppings
nnd her Tlsitings, with a load of anxiety
on her mind. In the erenlng she waa to
Hire Hoy bla answer.
They were to meet at some private
theatricals, and It waa there that he
'would ask her for her decision, to surely
the strangest proposal whleh a man erer
wade to a woman.
Whoa dinner time care Felicia was
still undecided. For a wonder ahe waa
dining at home with her father. They
took their places In alienee opposite each
other. And Mr. Grantley began his usu
"Why didn't you ask Itaikes to din
ner?" "He is staying with poor Mr. Des
mond; I didn't like to ask him to leare
That rtry morning Mr. Talbot saun
tered down Bond street, when she al
most stumbled Into Brian Desmond's
arms as he came quickly round the cor
ner of Grosveuor street.
Here waa a chance 0 mischief making
which our friend Gertrude waa not In the
least likely to neglect. Bho laughed and
stood still, ao Immediately In front of
Mm that Iirlan had no chance but to
atand still, too.
"Vou nearly knocked me down!" ahe
cried playfully. Then asked quickly
"Any news of that naughty little truant,
Mrs. Desmond r
'T haro not beard from my wife to
day, answered Iirlan (rowulngly.
"Oh! of course you know where ahe
Is?" she cried lightly. "I tell crerybody
no. I've been fighting her battles for her
everywhere. Of course, there Is not an
11 torn of truth In all the unkind things
people sny, as I tell everybody, ho truth
ubout her, that Is to aay. Of course, you
ire a very naughty, bad man Indeed! '
lirlan'a brow grew black aa thunder.
No one had dared to breathe a word to
him of scandal concerning bis wife. It
had been I'M gar Ilalkea' constant care to
nee that no such reports reached bis
vara. Gertrude was pretty well certain
thut ho bad been told of nothing.
"Kindly explain yourself, Mrs. Tab
hot." he aald haughtily and sternly,
"What Is It concerning my wife that you
tiro kind enough to tell people, and what
ore the battles which you are generous
enough to wage on her account?"
"Oh, vaj dear fellow, don't look ao
cross. X assure you 1 nave conirnaicieu
It everywhere. Only Just now I met
gome people who declared that Hoy
Grantley waa still away; but It 1 quite
unjrue, for I saw Hoy In a hansom not
ten'mlnutes ago (he looked aa white aa
sheet, by the way), but of all the false,
wicked, cruel slauders on an Innocent
I little darling like your wife! However,
you and I know th world, dont we?
nd, after all, for you to complain would
If the pot calling the kettle black. Good
by, Iirlan. I may call you so Just for
tnee, mayn't 1? You ami I were al
ways good friends, though you haven't
paid me one compliment or admired my
new dres; but then I know 'Fair Ho.v
mend' Is all In all to you now!" And.
with this parting shut she kissed her
Angers lightly to him, and vanished round
the corner of the street.
Aa to Hrian, he turned slowly and
dully away. He could not go down to
the club, nor walk along HonJ street
and St. James street now, to run the
gauntlet of his friends' pitying or In
quiring glances, lie turned back and
wentslowly homeward. Ills miserable
secret was known, ami his wife's name
was coupled with that of another man.
He met his cousin coming out ef his own
"We will start at ence this very
night," he said to him. "I cannot bear
the shame ef thU," and then he repeated
to him what Mr. Talbot had said con
cerning his wife.
"Do not believe her," saM Bdgar
Itaikes, stoutly. "To have repeated such
a thing to you, she mtit be what I have
always taken her to be, a bad-hearted
woman. Stay at home like a man.
Hrian, find your wife and vindicate her
name by hrnging her back In the face
of the world."
"So. no, let us go, If not to-day, let it
be to-morrow," he answered gloomily,
for there was that other trouble, con
cerning Itosamond Karle. of which he
could speak to no one, weighing upon
his bejrt. That, too, was, It seems,
known and spoken about, and to save
Itosamond'a name It seemed to him that
he had no alternative, save to get him
self away out of Hngland. There was
no refuge for him save In flight. As to
Kitten, she had been foolish, but her
very simplicity and foolishness would
save her. With Itosamond It was dif
ferent. If Kitten's flight were once to
be attriiHUed to Its true eause, then the
voice of slander would not spare the
woman of whom his wife was Jealous.
He had made up bis mind to go. lly
noon the next day a wonderful thing bad
taken place. In every club. In every
house where Mr. and Mrs. Desmond's
name and story had been known, there
went about a strange and astonishing
piece of news. Everybody waa talking
about It. Kir Itoy Grantley was engaged
to hia cousin, the heiress.
'And, of course, said the fickle voice
of the multitude, "it Is evidently Impos
sible that there could have been any
truth In that other story of his unfor
tunste attachment to Mrs. DesmonJ."
Kitten's name waa saved.
And IMgsr Itaikes, going In for a mo
ment to his club to get his letters, heard
the atory, too. Then he went back to
Lowndes Square, and be said:
"Let us go at once."
They started from Charing Cross that
It Is six months later. From July to
January. A great many things In the
worlds history may take place In six
Some sueh thought was In the mind of
a woman who sat very still in the twi
light of a winters afternoon, staring
dreamily Into the red coals of the fire
it front of her.
The world outside was white with
snow. Know upon the cottage eaves,
upon garden palings, and upon the atone
pillars of the garden gate, snow in thick
masses upon the laurel hedge, and a
while pall upon the winding lane that
vanished speedily away Into misty dark
ness, and snow again upon the distant
shoulders of round-backed hills whleh
loomed weirdly against the gloomy sky.
And the woman herself sat still and
motionless by the fireside, with the red
light flowing full upon her. Her dress
it of black velvet, plain as any nun's,
jet with a certain richness In Its har
monious folds. There are white lace
frills at her throat and wrists, and the
gleam of diamond upon the baud upou
wbleh she rent her oval cheek.
Rosamond Karle Is doing what she has
seldom allowed herself to do of lain; she
Is dissecting her own heart.
Insensibly she had grown to have but
one Interest In her existence, one soli
tary pleasure to whleh she looked for
ward the periodical visits of her land
lord, John Trefusls. Khe led a I If, of
absolute seclusion at Dunstertou. The
red brick cottage upon the ouUklrts of
the village greet), with Its tiny lawn and
Its miniature flower garden, and with the
gliuipe of the Kepplngton bills away
through the gate, bad suited her pur
pose admirably. Hero she had battled
through the worst of her sorrow, and
had eome forth sen r red and wounded
Indeed from the fight, but a ounqueror
lu the end.
"How right I was to go away at once
and to leave no trace of my destina
tion," she said to herself often.
Hut she bad no Idea that Iirlan was
abroad, or that Hrlan'a wife wua not
living with him. In this far-away vil
lage 110 records of the doings and say
ings of the world had reached her ears,
and she certainly flattered herself that
her own retreat was absolutely unknown
to all save to her one friend. Colonel
And gradually and Insensibly this one
friend became more and more to her.
His unflagging devotion, bis unwearying
kindness, could not fall lu the end to
have some effect upon her. He never
spoke to her of love, but the atmosphere
of bis love surrounded her. Hbe did not
love him, but she learned to depend upon
him. It Is often said that a heart can
be caught at a rebound.
Her solitude was broken by her par
lor maid, who tapped at the door and
desired to kuow If she might apeak to
her. She was a rosy-cheeked Yorkshire
girl, whose father had been a farmer,
but who bad failed, owing to bad sea
sons and high rents, ao that his children
had all had to go out Into the world and
earn their living. Polly Wbafllo, aa she
had been called In the day when ahe
Idled her time over her father's farm
gate, and when Edgar Ralkea employed
his spire moment In making love to her,
had enter I Mr. l!ai e service timn

the mure d g.ilflcd name of Mary.

Wh.itlle had been sent out to nil Inv0.il
t-:nbhhment mantged by nn Knglih
el'terhood at Mentone, It wa of thl
brother that Mary cime to speak.
"I hate had a letter to-day from my
"indeed, and how Is he, Mary?"
"Oh, so much better nlreidy. ma'am,
and so grstetul to you and the colonel
fur all your g.vodnes to him." And
then Mary proceeded to enter Into a
detailed account of her brother's con
dition ami of his surrounding at Men
tone, which were all of great Interest to
his benefactre. After which Mary
said, rather hluhlngly, "And only think,
ma'am, he met a friend there one day,
sack a kind gentleman nhom we all used
to know at home, Mr. Ralkea, who lived
up at the Hall."
"At Keppington, do you mean?"
"Ye, ma'am, he was Mr. Desmond's
cousin, nnd he used to live there, he
was there two years, I daresay, and h
wa a great friend of mine." she added,
with a little cncioua simper.
Mrs. liarle fell to muslug. Itaikes.
Halfces, who wa he? Ah, yes! she fan
cied she remembered a family of that
name; many son ami many daughter.
whoe mother wa a needy widow, and
of whom mention used often to be made
at Keppinton In years gone by. No doubt
thl young man wa one of thl family.
"He ha been very klHd indeed to
young George," continued Polly, "ami
Inquired so much after me: ami then
he gave him three sovereigns for him
self, so that George is quite rich now."
'That wa very kind of him," an
swered her mistress absently. And then
Mary left her, and she thought no more
of It; nor did It occur to hrr to imaglna
that through the Instrumentality of
George Whatlle It would be polble for
Hrian Desmond to learn where it was
she was living. Edgar Ralke might
be his couln, and he might also be at
Mentoao. bub that Hrian should hav
been a bystander at the Interview be
tween the two certainly never entered
for a moment Into her calculation.
Eleven o'clock struck. The last note
of the clock had scarcely rung before
she caught a sound outside at the gar
den gate; the click of the Iron latch, then
the slow swing of the hinge followed
by the clang of the gate a it fell back
again. Her dog put up his nose, ami ut
tered a low growl. ltoamml shut up
her book suddenly, and stood up. The
door bell rang.
She stood for a moment halt uncer
tain. Should she summon the servants
from their bed, or should she go to
the door herself?
At last, however, she opened the doer.
There stood OHtshle, upon the doorstep,
a man, wrapped In a long, !ooe travel
ing cloak, with a heavy cap to It.
When he saw her he made a half step
back, as though he would have turned
"Who are you and what do you want
at this hour of the night?" said Rosa
mend, summoning up her courage, al
though ahe was secretly somewhat un
easy. And then he sKke, and she rec
ognized his voice.'
"Forgive mo for coining at such an
hour. The train broke down; I have
walked five miles through the snow.
May I come la?"
She backed slowly from him into the
hall; a great chill struck her soul, a
sick sene of mlerable helplessness.
He came in, divested himself of hi
heavy cloak ami of hi hat, shaking the
snow from them Into tbe porch. Her
eyes rented upon him almost with terror
"Why have you eome to trouble rae?"
she said to him, in a strange, hollow
voice, and yet she led the way back Into
tbe warmth ami light of her sitting
room. For bow turn a dog from her
door on such a night!
"Ah, how warm and bright!" he mur
mured, stretching dawn his eoM hand
towards the blazing wood togs. He look
ed very cob! as he stooped over lb
blaze, and so pale ami wan; It struck
her with a keen pang of anguish to see
"You must forgive me for coming se
late, Rosamond," be said to hrr uue
"Why why have you coins, Hrian?"
she, too, repeated once again. "Could
you not at least keep out of my way?"
