CnAPTi.il XV. (Continued.)
It waa for Lynn, not for himself, )i
wanted the- farm. 1 hm now why he
hnil pitched uroa that pxrt.cular one; lie
waa alto aware that It was side ly ltle
with the Dingle. If anything could pro
mote the union of I.ynn Yearned and MIm
Dalrj-mplc, It was this propinquity ; for
here, he must have reflected, the young
man would be urged to do his best, that
she might see he had the gwl qualities
the energy, the re.iolut.on which ha pre
tended to oscm.
In the evening I went over to the doc
tor's house to see If I could pick up any
news, and by a happy chance h was at
home. Mo welcomed tne heartily.
"I have seen the captain's farm. It
will do admirably, t will get you to ar
range the term with htm as early as
lstble." he said.
I nodded gloomily. My want of enthu
siasm now, contrasting with my warmth
In the morn.ng, wns too noticeable to es
cape him. I.fk all good fellows he waa
keenly alive to the humorous aspect of
things, and I stw n twinkle in his eye
a he turned to pole the fire,
"You don't teem so eager about It as
you were, Keene," he ald. with a smile.
"No; I wa tool enough to think you
were going to take it for yourself."
"And you have found out that the fu
ture tenant Is to be he Lynn YeamcsTf"
"Well, let me hear what you've gut to
say," said I, turning round, with a re
solve to be as impartial in my dealings

"I hare no right to any of this money
virtually," he slid.
"I won't admit that, to begin with." I
replied. "Flexmorr willed the money to
you. and signed his will when he wa in
health, and had the ability to reason the
matter out; the will he did not s.gn was
decided upon when be was s.rk and
unable to reason upon It."
"You will admit that In either case
he intended this money to go to tie man
Miss Dalrymple should marry.
I assented to this proposition, and he
continued: "It li m longrr a question
whether I shall marry her that Is sot
"Well, It be wUl only work heart and
soul for his own sake, it's as much as I
can eipect of him. I-et him begin with
that; we shall see about the rest. You
liare spokeu to blm on this subject?
"YeaJ we went together to look at the
farm this afternoon, lie Is delighted with

I was not surprised to hear this. Kvery
one thinks be has the wit to make a farm
pay by just riding about on a rub and
eivlng orders; and to be a "gentlrman
fanner" la the desire of a good many
lasy young gentlemen especially when
there's good shooting in the neighborhood,
nd a comfortable bouse, with an excel
lent billiard table In It.
"If you are still resolved on parting
with your money, I think I see bow it
may lie done without too much risk,"
Mid I. "We will start with the idea

In for the whole amount arising from the
bequest. Now, there's au arrangement ad
vantagrous enough for Yeames in all con
science. It does not benefit you one
ienny piece, and so ought to be accept
able; and It carries out I'lexmorr's last
wishes lo tittle."
'That M-ems a capital arrangement,"
said Awdrey cheerfully. "I should think
Yeamea would be pirated with it."
"lie ought to he," said I.
Hut I was very doubtful whether be
would be; for a greedy man Mould not
be satisfied with ten Ihoutsnd a year. If
he thinks he may by hook or by crook
However, he had the grace to express
entire satisfaction with the arrangement
when Awdrey explalued It to blm, and the
doctor bade me conclude negotiations with
Captain Itanger aa quickly as possible.
The following week Miss Dalrymple
moved into her new home with all her
household; and one morning when I had
been to settle affairs with Captain Han
ger, I walked across the meadow, climbed
over the fence that separated It from
the Dingle paddock, and made my way
to the Cottage. I found everything In
Its place, and the whole house aa ueat and
comfortahle as If the tenant had bou
there a year-
It termed to me that I had never seen
N'unm Gertrude to such advantage. Hlack
was certatuly becoming to her, and her
dress was, to my eyes, the perfection of
grace and elegance, giving fullness to her
figure which, as t have sakl before, was.
In my opinion, a tritle too slight, tier
carriage was never wanting In dignity,
but I thought she bore, herself with the
nlr of one conscious of bring mistress of
the house. Yet there was no stiffness or
formality In her manner; little I.Mire
herself did not welcome me with sweeter
I at down by the fire and we fell to
talking about the neighbors. I learned
that they had already received visitors,
though It was scarcely time to expect
them, and I i glad to hear this, not
only because It would l good for Iaure
to find companions of her own age, but
for Miss Dalrymple'a sake also. Mixing
among people who must appreciate her
excellent qualities It was leu to one that
some decent young fellow would fall In
loir with her. and good might come of it.
One thing I had mai up my mind upon ;
if Dr. Awdrey wouldn't have her, Mr.
I.ynn Yesmrs shouldn't. Although the
running at present looked faorahle for
Lynn, the race was not won yet by many
a length, and I had a strong belief that
he would be found nowhere when the mar
riage bell rang.
"And who else has called upon you.
Miss Dalrymple?" I asked, when Iure
left the room, "lias Mr. Yeames paid
you another llt since we last met?"
I wondered whether the little frown
with which she replied In the negative
Intnlled that she was hurt by his neglect.
or vexed at th thought of his calling
upon her again.
"1 was told that he Intends to redeem
his character before he again presents
himself." said I.
"I am very glad to hear It," she re
plied, taking up her work.
"However, you will be able to see him,
for he is to be a near neighbor." I fan
cied that she did not look particularly
pleased at this Intimation. "He Is go
ing to live In the house over there, and
from this window you will be able to
see him. If you get up early, mowing
his fields following his team, throwing
heart and soul and money Into the noble
endeavor lo lierume a worthy member of
soc.ety and a model farmer."
"Hut I understood that Mr. Yeames
was In difficulties."
"What does that matter? He has found
a friend who's a bigger fool than he In
some restects. willing to pay his debts
and spend a thousand a year lesldes to
make a worthy gentleman ot Dim. io
vou think he will succeed?"
She did not reply to my question, but
sat absorbed In thought. Watching her
face keenly, I thought there was an ex
press on of tender sadness In It. Was
she mourning in her heart for the fall of
one whom no effort could raise up? or
was sbe grieving to think of that other
friend's disappointment when he should
find that all he bad done was of no
The friend is Dr. Awdrey?" .aid Miss
Dalrymple, after we bad sat lu silence
fur sosa moments
"Yes" I replied; "that is not dilEeult
to discover: for I believe there's not an
other man In the whole world who would
berjrar himself for others as he will."
Sbe sat with Idle hands and taming
eyes still and silent as one sits at times
awed by the beauty of a starry night.
"And I hare not told you all that be

"He must live ,i .jreit rwpen for Mr.
Yeames," she sal'l,
"A lery strong belief In his latent good
ness, undoubtedly," I said. "Dr. Aw

girl. In that category he Is not the only
one who has had a great respect for Mr.
"How am I to rrply to that thrust?"
she asked, wltb a smile.
"Hy telling me that if Dr. Awdrey bad

"Hut still his faith in latent good
qualities might exist," said she.
"I know his loe would remain unal
tered; and while lie thinks Yrnimss capa

"His love?" she reeated questlonlngly.
with a little emphasis
"Ills love," I said again; "and greater
love hath no mail than this that he lay
down hi life for his friend."'
"Do jou think he lotcs Mr. Yeames to
such an extent as that?"
"I was not thinking of Mr. Yeames,"
tald I; "he Is not the only friend con
cerped; It Is a friend better known, more
highly prlxed In his heart, for whom that
brave man would lay down his life."
The malicious smile provoked by our
little panaage of unns faded from her
lips, the color left her cheek, her dark
ryes deeiiened aa she looked at in with
intense earnestness, to read lu my face
what I had yet left untold.
I believe she realized at that moment
for the first time that Dr. Awdrey loved
her with a love that Is deeper tbau
friendship. . ,
"if I have not put a considerable, long
sok In Mr, Ijyuti'a wheel, I'm a Dutch
