Arthur' vlalts to Mr. Castleton were
row of dally occurrence. He know no
teat nor happiness out of her presence.
Ilia soul became steeped In the delicious
) languor of sweet music.
It wss about (I o'clock when he arrived
at the house. The ladles had Just (In
lahed dinner. Mn. Kreemsn was In the
i room with her niece; but after a little
time that lady found an excuse to leave
the loren together.

repugnance to tell her that atory. Hut

lie told the story In an earnest, sub
dued tone, and with the air of a man
thoroughly poasemcd by his subject. He
had at first Intended to relate to her a
mere brief outline of the family legend.
Just sufficient to account for hla super-
fttltfous repugnance to an alliance with
Mian Qrleraon; but after the first few
eeatencea he told it from beginning to
end with the utmost minuteness of de
tail, largely Intermixed with commenta
ries which the brooding thoughts of many
years had engendered.
At the first mention of the name of
De. Solaaona she started; a look of Intense
wonder came Into her face; and she list
ened with a breathless Interest that grew
In intensity with every stsge of the nar
ratlre, and rose into terror as he repeated
the words of the curse. Hut ber excite
ment reached Its culmination when he
went on to tell of that stormy night when
the bodies of the woman and child were
washed up at bis and his father's feet
as they stood upon the rocks; and how,
by the dim light In the fisherman's hut, he
had been struck by the resemblance of the
1 dead child to the face In the picture, and
how strangely this fancy had been seem
ingly confirmed by the name upon the
To all this she llstenej with dilated
eyes and parted lip. "And the woman
and child what became of them she
cried, clutching his arm with trembling
"Both were dead. They were buried
the next morning In Penrhyddyn church
For a moment she stared at him with
a racant look, then passed her band orer
ber eyes, like, one atrirlng to focus the
scattered thoughts of a wandering brain,
i end muttering to herself, "Am I mad or
dreaming, or what can It mean?"
Then, suddenly turning ber eyes upon
him, she exclaimed, "Why, this child was
cast at your feet Juit as the woman In
the legend was at her husband's!"
"Precisely," anawered Arthur, gloom
ily. "And I hare often thought, had that
child II red, upon her shoulders Fate
-would hare cast the fulfillment of the
"It is an awful story," she said, with
a sblrer. "Hut In what way Is Miss
Qrleraon connected with It?"
Arthur then proceeded to tell bow he
tad dlscorcrcd Constance to be a member
of tiat Ill-omened family, by seeing the
name of De Solaaona written upon the
old French music.
"Constance Grlerson a De Solaaoaal
Great heavens; Is It posalblel" ate almost
shrieked, starting from the couch in the
extremity of her wonder.
"yes. What Is the matter?" cried Ar
thur, staring at her In startled surprise.
"Xotblng. Hut do you suppose I could
listen to such a story of marrellous coin
cldencea without atnaxemcnt7 How won
derful! How awfully strange I" she
murmured, and that shlrer of terror
again passed through ber frame.
"And I bare not come to the end of
these more than natural coincidences,"
he continued. "Miss Orlcraon's fortune
la hampered by an extraordinary will, to
the effect that If she Is not married before
the age of twenty, and to a man of pedi
gree, the whole of it, sare a trifling an
nuity, falls Into the hand of ber moth
er's family, the De Solssone."
At those word Mrs. Cnstleton, who
had sunk Into deep thought, looked up
with new wonder In ber eyes. "I'ardon
tne," she slid, eagerly. "I did tiot hear
the last sentence.
He repeated the words, Imputing the
strange Intense Intereat of her look to
sympathy with the story. "And to what
members of the family J" she asked, In a
voice trembling with eagerness.
"One-half goes to certain relative In
England, the chief of whom Is one Mr,

Mrs. Castleton covered her face with

couch, seemingly irroatrated by Intense

In mind, and promising to visit ber early
the next morning. From the time that
they had stood upon the footing of lover
she bad never parted from him so strange

face and Its rigid lips and wild eye
baunted him through the night, and seem

memory that -he could not fix for a while,

In ise flthcrman't hutt The very thought
made the cold dews of terror start out
upon his brow. No, It was Impossible;
hla morbid Imagination would find reem
blances where no shadow of such existed.
A gloomy, terrlblo night was that to Ar
Hut far more terrible was the night
pawed by Mrs. Castleton. The moment
Arthur had quitted her, she ran up to her
bedroom, and cast herself upon her knees,
and burled her face In the bed corer. The
next moment she rose to her feet and
paced the room like one dlatraught. Wild,
Incoherent ejaculatlona burst from her
Him, and sobs and groans. Hour after
hour passed away, and still this freniled
excitement, thW exaggerated hyaterla, was
unabated, until exhauated nature could
endure no mare; and throwing heraelt
upon the bed, she fell Into a stupor of
insensibility rather than a healthful sleep.
When Arthur came In the morning, she
was too III to recelre him. She had not
left her room; could not recelro him until
the next day, Such was the mes-uvra de
livered by Mrs. Freeman, which sent him
away with a heary heart.
Two hours afterward, howerer, she
drore away In her phaeton to the city.
Doctors' Commons was her destination

When ahe returned to Mrs. Freeman,
whom she had left In the carriage, her
face wore a more composed look, and
there was an expression of smiling satis
faction In her eyes. Most earnest was

Mr. Parson twirled hi a moustache,

haughtily acknowledged the Introduction
by a curt bow,

Stafford called Jeromo aside,

During the whole of that day Arthur
was like one upon the rack. The Indispo

grief and dismay; and a vague sense of
some orerbanging evil plunged him Into
the deepest dejection.

situated In a dingy street.

Jerome's studio was a garret lit by a
skylight a blank, dreary looking room,
with yellow-ochred walls, broken away In
places. Old canvasses, old plaster casts,
bit of medlajval armour, unfinished
sketches, lump of whiting, palettes, and
all the litter of an artist's room, lay about
In the wildest confusion.
As Stafford entered the room, be could
but dimly discern the figure within
through the dense cloud of tobacco smoke,
