When Mr. Merle came Into the room a
few minutes later he seemed quite surpris
ed at the unwonted efceerfnlBei. He
nodded to Alison, and then took up tits
letters, but she was not satisfied.
"You have not kissed roe, papa." she
said, as she carried bliu round his cup
"Ob, I thought only Tussle caret! for

Topple reddened, and bent orer her
plate In much coafunton. Itogtr, who
was next to ber, saw the child's eyes nere
full of tears.
"I expect Topple Is afraid of bothering
you," be obserred. "Voti would like fath
er to kls you sometimes, as le does
Mfssle." he said, kindly.
"Is Itrat true, my little girl?" aked
Mr. Merle, who bad Jut caught sight of
Topple quivering lip. The poor child,
who was ery senItlre, was oil the (mint
of burst iHg Into tears, but Alteon ha Hilly

looked laughingly at him from behind bee
The brlghtntM seemed to route Mm ef

when he entered the room, but good-humor
"You look rery nice, dear," he said, ap
provingly. "I like to see you there, All

plai-e," Mfssle, who had just opened the
door, caught both thee remarks; they
lid not erldently conduce to her amia
bility Klin gave Alison a withering glance
as she passed by her, to greet her father,
and, taking no notice of her or the others,
desired Ituilrl rather rrowdy to glte her
iiior'- room, and began ber breakfast rath
Hut for once her humors were disre
garded. -No ono troubled themwdves about
Iter, and the conversation was renewed
with scarcely a break. Terliap both
Itojer and Alison were doing their beat to
carry It on. but their sente of effort was
lost In the general good.
When breakfast was over, and ItudM
luid rushed off to school, and Sir. Merle
and Iloger bad gone over to the mill, AII
Kiii asked ber sister pleasantly bow she
Vroponcd to aiend the morning.
'That Is wy affair," she answered, very
rudel). "I n not accustomed to give an
account of myself to gratify io)le'a curi

Alison felt Inclined to laugh -there -wa
aoinetblng comical In Minnie's modo of
showing her temper, but he kuetr nothing
I prorokrs people, more than to langh at
them, eo she pmdi-ntly refrained from
showing tier mirth "I am Jtut going

"I dare say whea I bat finished you

oa, in a conciliatory teu. A she was
bent sa making MU Ilnlli-V ac
quaintance for her own jmrpo he took
no notice of sundry remarks la an under

ears, about people sever knowing when
they were not wanted.
Alison was soon too basy ta remember

"I sH have been painting In my

laugh, bat as she pat ashle her Mlette
and rose, she east a serutfnUIng glance
en the ywung girl beside her.
She was a slight, ale girl. e Ideally a
little younger than herself; somewbat
plain In feature, bat nlth a pleasing,
gentle expression, though a painful hesi
tation la her speech, almost amounting
te-a stammer, marred the effect ef a sin
gularly sweet voice. Kven la that first
moment Album, who bad a true artlstle
taste la all matters pertaining to drewt,
wondered at tb laid judgment that roabt
select dull, neutral tints fur a complexion
so cosorbi: the Urge bat evershailowed
ber features, and bbl the soft hair that
was her only beauty.
"Yoa are Mbw llardwk-k. I spjeef"
observed Aliwti, with a shrewd gaess
that this wa ltr joung sister of a bom
MU lelsh spoke.
"Not Miss llardwkrk." eorrecteil the
girt; "I am only Anus. Kia and Mabel

"Ob, no: not at all. We ska II be nice

Mil, iu a friendly tolre. "I have only
this IKlb bit of batkgrftund to finUh. and
then I shall Is- free to talk to you."
Alison painted for a few minutes si
lently; she was thinking. Then she laid

"If you will excuse me a moment I

she sabl, rasher quickly, "ami then. If yon

no notice of her. She walked up straight
to Mis Ilardwltk, anil held out her hand
with one of her pleasant smile.
"I tare just made acquaintance with
jour sister." she said, with quiet tact;
"we are going In the garden, as the bout
feel so How thl lovely day. I shall
be so glad, ami I am sure Mated will be,
too, If you wilt both stay with us to
"I thought you knew better, Alison,"
Mfale Interrupted, pettishly, before her
friend could sjieak. "Itaar apa Is so
nertoiM and worried about busiiie and
Roger' wretched management that he Is
not able to bear lunelieMi visitors, l'va
uudsrstonds this, don't you, dear?"
"Oli, ye, darling," returned Miss Hard
wlek, wild effusion; "but perhaps jour
sister, let-Ins a stranger and not quite
used to all the ways at The Holms, has
moils a mistake. That Is very uatural."
"Oh, no," returned Alison, trying to
keep cool, "I am making no mistake.
Tnpa will not be In to luncheon, or my
brother, either, as they have business a
little way out of town. Ho I thought, as
we should be. quite alone, that It would be
a good opjiortiinlty, Mabel, for you to
have your frtend,"
Mlssle's pink cheek became crimson
with vexation; It aggravated her to see
Alison taking upon herself so quietly the
duties of the mistress of the house; and
she was still more Injured that her fath
er' movements bad not been first notled

j after a few more word, she lUtrned re-
lartaatly tn Iva criticism.
"I had no Idea jour sister was such a
stylish person." she said, when the door
j dosed en Alinm, "she has Hue ejes ami a

on style In dree. She h not as pretty
I a J on. darling, of course, but she has
some claims to gtxxi loots.
Alison ilkl mil rettirii these moderate
compliments; she was not at all attract
ed by Mt llanlalek. She was a large,
heavy looking girl, rather hamlMmr, bat
brr face bad no pl7 ef eipreki, and
her manner was decided!) artinvlal.
Alison spent a pleasant hour with her
new friend under the lime trees, She
soon grew Interested In Anna's artlc
talk. She was evidently very young for
ner age; taetigh she wus sevrnteen, sh
was still childish la manners. TrobaUly
she had been reprewMMl and kept In th

When linger relumed from hi work,

quite traasaied on the gravd walk : for
