The Minister's Wife By MRS. HENRY WOOD CHAITKK XVII On the following day Sir Kverard call A nt IZatou place. lie saw Mary, and they went straight to Dr. Dynevor. There, ir shaking hand. 1m quietly said that differences had arisen between hlmeelf nod Mies Mary, aw tbey bad Mutually ngrred to part. Smw, perhaps, mi n canon so ! founded, mw did one feel more out raged, and never was one is a greater lttsdon. though he controlled It. "What was the cause?" be demanded. "Tbe precise cam. he ami Miss Mary Tiya had agreed to keep to them dw," was tbe answer of the baronet. -It was sufficient to say that tbey were loih. fully convinced a union between them would not conduce to their bappl tins and they had come to the conclu sion uot to carry it out." "I will know the truth." foamed the cannon. "Why do you part?" "Differeneev" gasped Mary, who had taken ber cue from Sir Everard. "Noth ing that I can particularly explain. We found that a marriage between us would not lead to happiness, and we parted." "Won't you speak out?" cried he. Isrtagtag down his clerical shoe upon the smrpet. "That Is all I hate to say." he an wered. drooping her bead. "Very well." cried Dr. Dynevor. as he fitted tb room and shut himself Into ltl study. This save Ml Dynevor and the girls aa opportunity of inquiring oa their own account. Question after ques tion they poured out oa tho unhappy Mary. but tbey &tl not succeed la get ting from her any solution to the mys tery ; which, of course, bore an III appear- USCC. "I very much fear it is a case of Jilt is." groaned Atftit Ann. "If the days of clnsdfa: were not past, one of your broth. er ought to co out and shoot Everard AVUmot. Dishonorable craven. Your father any enter an actios against him." The possibility of concealment was all over now, as Mary saw; and she dragged herself is fear and sickae to her father's iwcseaee. "Is it true that you hare done It? she gasped; and the subdan was at no loss to understand her meaning. "It soon will be true. Tbe nun shall be held up a tpectaele to the world." "Oh. ia pa. you must undo it, you must undo it! Do not lose a moment. It was net Sir Everard who broke off the en gagement; It was I." Tbe subdean stared at her through his croar, ugly spectacles, for he bad been reading a letter when she interrupted falsa. She laid her arms upon the back a chair, and seemed to tan her weight upon it; lie saw that she was trembling. "The truth, papa, is that I refused Sir Ever ard; so that if aa action might be brought on either side it would be on hU. He came home to marry me; but I I could not marry him ; and he was so kind as to let it appear to you that it was as muck lit fault as mine." "You broke it off? Of your owa ac cord Your reason? You do not stir from my presence till you have given it to me." "I'apa," the breathed, bonding ber face down upon the arm of the esalr, "I I liked some one else better than Sir Erer ard." "You liked " The eaaon stopped; Indignation aud astonishment overmaster ed him. "Who Is Itr be demanded, is aa awful tone. She did sot answer. What he could e of ber facts looked as crimson as his own sometime was. "Who hi it. I ask?" lie repeated, and shrink and shiver as she would, there was no trading that reso lute quMtkiB. "Chart Haumgarten." A curt letter, couched in the haughti est of terms, reached Charles Haumgar ton's cbambora is Pump Court, from Dr. Dynevor, forbidding him all further Inter course with the Dynevor family. "I know the old boy ean do the thing In style nben be bring his mind to It, !ot this Is super-extra, Charley," remark- , ed Klcbard Dynevor, wbo chanced to oall oon after the misfire was delivered. 'Cliew up, lad ; thing may take a turn." And a few weeks jl on. Mary ajDynevor was not dying, no oae said that ; ljut erery one did say that she was wast ing aw). Tbe subdein, haughty, cold fiud implacable, would not see it; Miss Dynoror bad begun to speak of It com plalnlngly; Ileglna and Grace grieved. She bad a touch of low fever, and seemed unaMe to struggle out of it. Mary chiefly lay upon tbe sofa; she was too weak to sit up throughout tbe day. Hinartlng under tbe displeasure of Iter father, obliged to submit to tbe quer ulous remarks of ber aunt, wbo rarely crated to grumble at the rupture of to desirable a marriage, Miffering in a let degree from tbe covert reproaches of ber tdster. wbo felt it a a grievance upon them. Mary bad a sad time of it. At to Charles Haumgarten, be bad gone on cir cuit, and seemed to be done with for ever. Kven Richard never beard from or of blm. "It Is of no use, madam, my coming fiere day after day to see "the patient." tvjmen'hat testily explained Dr. Lamb, tbe family phyelclan. one day to Miss Dyne vor, 'The disorder Is on tbe mind ; some trouble, I believe, Is weigning upon ner, If It cannot be tet at rest, I can do no eood." MW Dynevor, now very uneasy, aat flown to w"lte n Pl' t0 tbe aubdean ot Oldeburcb. It d "e ffect ol Ma' log Dr. Dynevor to town. Though harsh ,ad altera with bla children, bs waa fond t them at heart, ami he did not like to bear that Mary might be In danger of dying, lie traveled up at night, reach ing Kastos Place la the nwrnlng. Break fast over, he shut blolf is with his sister. "And now, Ann, what do you mean by writing to me as you did?" began he, in his temeit manner. "I said to you, Ilichard. what Dr. Imb said to me. And I gave you my opinion that she bad better be allowed to mar ry Charles Ilaumgarten." "I dare say," exclaimed the haughty canon. "There's not a shade of a chance now for Sir Kverard Wllmot." went on Mls Dynevor. "It's of no use thinking of him. Of course girls ought not to be giv en way to under ordinary circumstances. Itut when It comes to this point, that the girl may be dying, to give way may bo nothing leu than a duty." "Iet her see him then, and hare done nith it," spoke the canon sharply. Miss Dynevor was surprised at the con cession, but hastened to repeat it to Mary. It made ber pale and agitated. "I shall write a short epistle to hi chambers In I'ump Court and let It await him there." sahl Miss Dynevor.' "No ooubt be will call here as soon as he reads It." "Mind, aunt, I must see him alone." said Mary, a strangely heightened color lighting her wan cheek. "You need not fear that any of us will covet to be present: we are not to fend of him," retorted Ml Dynevor. She tent the "ephtte" to Tump Court. It lay there for some little time. Charles' was oa tbe Home Circuit, and when its business was orer, he turned to Great Whktoa to spend a day or two with his mother and sister, wbo were staying at Avon House. Itut be lost no thac la obeying the summons, when be was back in London. Mary received him alone, as she had wished. She sat back upon the large, Id fashioned sofa In the drawing room, ber head supported by a pillow. Charles was shocked to observe tbe change In ber, ami thought sbe mmt be dying. "No," sbe said to him after they had spoken for some time. "I am not dying. Tbey think, at least they say, that when once my mind Is at rest, when we shall hare parted for good, suspense exchanged for certain misery, that I shall begin to get well again. It may be to." Her bead lay passively upon his shoul der; and they bad Just settled themselves Into this most Interesting potltioa, when tbe door opened with a crash, and in marched the subdean. Mary's bead started back to its pillow; Charles stood up. fold ed his arms, and looked fearlessly at the Intruder. "So you are here again, sir?" "Ily appoistmest. Dr. Dynevor. An I am grieved to tee what I do tee. She is surely dying." "You think so, do your cried the canos. "Perhaps you imagine you could tare her life?" "At any rate I would try to save It. If I wore allowed. What Is your objection to me. sir?" he hastily added, bis tone one of sharp demand. "My cosnectioss are unexceptionable; and many a brief less barrister has risen In time to tbe wooisatl." "I am glad you have tbe modesty to acknowledge that you are brlefloss." "I did sot acknowledge it, and I am not brienVss," returned Charles. "I have beans to get on." Dr. Dynevor looked at hit daughter. "Would you patrosize this sort of 'get ting oa?" asked be. There wts a strange meaning Is his tone, which struck on Mary's oar. Sbe rose is agitation, her bands eiasped. "Papa, I would risk It. Oh, papa, If you would only let me, I would risk It and trust It." "If you ehoose to risk It and trust it you mr do to," responded tbe aubdean, coolly; "and that is what I have eome In to say. Hut. recollect, I wash ray bands of tbe consequences. Wben you shall have gathered all kinds of embar rassments about you," be added, turning to Charles, "don't expect that you are to come to me to help you out of them. If you two wish to make timpletoat of your selves and marry, go and do it. Hut un derstand that you will do It wltb your eyes open, Mr. Charles Haumgarten." Tbe subdean strutted out of the room, and Charles caught the girl to blm, for be thought she waa fainting. "How good he Is to us!" gasped th young man in the revulsion of feeling which tbe decision brought blm. CHAITKK XVIII. Charles Haumgarten sat In bis cham bers enjoying an animated discussion with hit friend. Jephson, the great chancery lawyer. About a week had gone by slnee Cbarlea bad come borne from tbe circuit and held that momentous interview with Mary Dynevor which bad teen broken In upon by tbe aubdean. Mary had now gone, wltb tome friends, to Hrlgbton for ebange of air, and Charles was, to to say, a bachelor at large again. Tbe change from despair to hope bad to elated him that he bad tomewbat rashly likened It to Klytium. Hut now a certain ugly looking bill for eighty-one pounds, bear ing Charles' acceptance, bad been pre sented to blm for payment. Charles declined to pay It, on the ground that be bad not accepted It. Ho repudiated the bill altogether. It wat held by that eminent legal firm, Godfrey It Herbert Jephson; tbe latter of whom had now come to Pump Court In person, bringing the bill with blm. "I never saw It In my life until to da," protetl Charles llautugarteti. "ou ha been Imposed upon." Mr. Jrptfton laughed. In days gone iiy they hail Invn very Intimate at the university together, ami had there formed a clov friendship; though Herbert Jeph ton was the ehler by some year.

After snaUhlng his dinner In the evening, he went out to call upoa the elder of the two Jephsons ; fer. In spite of his ar- tlon that bo should do nothing, the affair was giving him concern, and he deter. mined to look Into It. Godfrey Jephson was is hi dining room, but came out of it at once to Mr. Haumgarten. "It is Incomprehensible to me bow you can deny the signature." he said, eater- lag upon the matter at once. "If you saw my signature or Herbert's, you would know them. And we In the same way know yours. I recegnited It the moment I saw It. White it a respectable man; there's not a store upright tradesman In the city of Loudon; be is not one to say you accepted the bill If you did sot. It Is most strange that you should disown It, Mr. Haumgarten. "Did White tell you I had accepted It?" "He told Herbert. I have not bad time to see him." "Go with me to him now," suggested Charles.
