f Aunt Diana 5
of the Family
Mistle'a feeling were decidedly mixed
when Roger related at the breakfast table
the whole atory of the previous night.
AIIon wa little surprised by the
attention she received. Her pale checks
and hevy eyes secured a good deal of
petting. Mr. Merle questioned her anx
iously whether he had caught cold; Miss
I.cigh fairly overflowed with tender In
quirlrs; Roger waited on her araloualy,
and Rudel Mt staring at hr, to the ob
vious neglect of his breakfast. Mhula
shruggrd her shoulder n little orer the
whole affair. Alison had done very little
after all, but they were nil making such
a fuss over It. She doubly vexed
when Mini Ilardwlck enmo in, full of en
thusiasm for that dear, clever Alison. She
had met Roger, and he had stopiied and
glvn her and Anna a full account. Mia
ale had to llMrn to more euloglum.
though Alison modestly declaimed all
praise. MI Ilardwlck quite frightened
her when she assured her the whole thins
would be noon alt over the town.
"You will be n nine days' wonder, my
dear," she Mid, graciously. "People will
Mare at you when )ou walk through the
street. Fancy l.wklng the wreteh In!
It nu quite horrible and romantic. I
tnut run home and tell mamma and An
thony all about it."
All this wax rather a trial to Alison,
rerbap the greatest pb-arare the day
afforded was when Roger showed her a
letter he had written lu Aunt Pinna.
"Oh, you foolish boy." kite mM, coloring
with gratification nu she read the slow
ing sentence, written straight from Ro
ger's warm heart, ltut the tear were
very near the surface too. There wtn a
l.ttle apace left, and be wrote hHrrietlly
across It, when Roger had left the room
a moment: "Don't believe all Roger
ays. dear Aunt III. I nerer fek more
frlghtemsl in my life: heroine aro not
made of aucb cowardly stuff; they do not
act in a panic. They all make a sreat
deal too much of it."
Alton would hare been quite happy
during the next few day except for the
depressing effect of Mlssie' ill-humor.
Mbuie waa plainly suffering from a bad
attack of jealousy. Mlssie Bought con
aolatlon In Kva'a Catteries. Her vlslta
to Maplewood were now of dally occur
rence. AlUon once ventured to remon
atrate, "I do not think papa would be quite
pleased, Mabel, if he knew you were ao
much ip Captain Harper' company,' the
said, very gently.
"Captain Harier. Indeed."' returned
Mlssie. baughtily. "Vou need not trouble
youraelf, Alison. My visit are not to
"Xo, dear, of course not," replied All
aon, In a pleading tone, "ltut, all the
aame, you are coins erery djy to Maple
wood, and that throws you necessarily
Into his resipany. Mist Ilardwlck can
not weU banUh her cousin from the
room . and. Mabel, do feel that It la not
quite honorable to papa. He trusts us to
carry out his expressed wishes, and In
this you are setting them table."
"I wish jou would mind your own butt
newt Alison," he said, ansrlty. "Vou
bate no right to lecture me becaus you
are the eldest. F.va say I am quite Justi
fied In asserting tnjself. T hope I know
my duty without your always pointing
it out to me. and you may leave papa to
me. We hare alway understood each
other perfectly and thire is never any
thing wrong between us unless you ebeose
to go and tell tales."
"Mabel bow can you be so disagree
able?" began Alison, hotly. Hut she
cooled down ou reineinlerins Aunt Diana's
advice "Never get warm over art argu
ment, Allie. When you begin to feel angry
it is time to bold jour lougue." And All
ton held hers.
She woutd bare been a little comforted
if she bad known how ill at ease MIksIc
really was. Her high complexion and
cross Hpeerh only proved that the arrow
had gone home. She knew In her secret
heart that she was behaving dlhonor
nbly. Her father trusted her, and she
waa betraying his trust. The very next
day she had planned to Join Hva and her
couslu in a pleasure excursion, though
she knew it was an act of tacit dlsoboJI-
ence, but self-will only gains strength by J
Alison' vague uneasiness that led to

alarm when Koger came Into her room
that night. He was In evening dress,
Laving Jui.t returned from an early par
ty. Alison was waiting up for him. Hue
liad put oil her dress, changing It for n
dainty pink dressing gown. She looked
up brightly at him as he entered.
"Allle," he said, sitting down by her.
"I am so bothered about something I
have heard to-night. Did you know that
Mabel waa going down to Durbana with
MU" Hnrdwick and Captain Harper to
morrow'" "Why, nol" she aid, starting a little.
"What placo did you aay, dear?"
Durban. It is about twenty wiles
from here. There are wooiIh there where
people go for plcnlca. I meant to have
taken jou and Mabel one day, only we
should have gone by (rain. Miss Anna

nil about it quite Innocently, It seems

I would go to htm at once. Mabel has
no right to deceive him In this way, and
I should certainly get him to put ft atop

"He may possibly come by an earlier
train, he told me so as wn walked to the
station. It will depend on how long busi
ness will detain him. Of course we should
tell him, Allle; the thing Is beyond a
Joke. Fancy that fellow having the au
dacity to propose such a thing. I wih I
knew what I could do nbout It, Allle,
but father's absence obliges, me to bo in
the office. I must be In the )ard early,
too. I shall uot even be able to speak
"I will tell her what you say, and
then, of course, she will bo obliged to give
It up," relumed Alison, not relishing her
task at all. but counting, nevertheless, on
an easy victory. Mlssie bad put herself
so completely in the wrong- that no choice
but submission was left to her. ltoger,
who knew Mtssie perfectly, was not so
"Tell her that If she goes I shall cer
tainly Inform father, and then he wlM
put a stop to her visits to Maplewood,
and tell her, too, that I am perfectly
disgusted at her conduct. I am afraid
you must do' It, Allle."
"Very well," she sighed. Hut she lay
awake a long lime revolving what words
ahe would ue.
AIIon awoke with a strange oppres
sion Hon her a sense of dltllculty, that
made the daylight seem It bright. She
became nervously conscious that she might
fall. What if her severity were of no
avail, and Mlssie should persist In going?
She was a little later than usual In going
down. Hoger bad already bad his break'
fast and had gone to the mill, and the
meal was half over liefore she suggested
that l'ottle should knock nt Mattel's door.
"Oh. I forgot," returned Topple, lu n
stricken vok, laying dawn her slletj of
bread and Jam: "MIssle came Into my
room before' I was drewsed, and tobl me
to tell you she would not want any

shocked than Alison when she heard the
"My dear, your papa will never for
give us if we do not prevent it," she said,
very solemnly. "Vou none of you know
how particular he Is; and this will seem
dreadful to him. Vou must go to Maple
wood yourself, Alison, and speak to Mrs.
Ilardwlck. She is the ouly one who can
do anythiug. Anna can go in Mabel's
place, but you must Insist on bringing
Mabrl home. I will not answer for the
consequences If this affair comes to your

moved to tears at this fresh Instance of
Alison thought this such good advice
that she put on her bat at once and
walked over to Maplewood. It was not n
pleasant errand, she felt, and ithe hardly
knew vWiat she would say to Mrs. Hard
wick. She only knew she would refuse
to return without MUe, even If she bad
to brave the obnoxious Captain Harprr
himself. Itut her face fell when site en
tered the morning room and found Mr.
Hardwiek ami Anna alone: the other
had Just driven from the door. Sowing
that her visit was uelt Alison returned
home. Koger met her at the gate with
the news that Mr. Merle had returned.
"I have not seen him yet, Allle; I have
only jttt come acrowi from the mill," he
continued. "Would you like me to tell
him. dar, or do joa think jou eon do it
"We will go together," returned All-

he looked round as though he were disap

Alison, "do')ou dare to tell me (hat Ma

"Captain Harix-r Is driving them in his
dog-cart," rejoined Koger, coming to his
sister's relief. "It seems a very silly af
fair, and I lioggcd her to stop It ; It I no

at breakfast, and though Alison started
off to Maplewood a soon us alio could

"Xo, It Is not jour fault," returned
Mr. Merle, gloomily, "Mabel must bear
the brunt of her own disobedience. Mis

"Would on like ma to take an early
afternoon train to Durban'" interrupt
ed Koger, who had already conceived this
plan, "and when I could Join them; there
Is a vacant seat In the dog cart."
"Look out a train In the time table,"
he said, suddeuly; "I will go myself, Hog
rr. Mabel shall not return in the dog
cart; I shall bring her bade by train."
Alison passed nn anxious and solitary
afternoon, and as ahe sat alone at her
needle wqrk she could not divest her mind
of all aorta of gloomy anticipations, Hhe
know her father to be n man of strong
passions; she dreaded the effecta of his
displeasure ou Mabel. His severity would
Xhi tempered, with justice, but still tha
weight of his anger would lie crushing.
Alison's tender heart was full of coin

what could have become of Roger? She
called to 1'opide hurriedly to run Into
the house, as It as bedtime and her
supper was waiting In the school room,
nn.l the little girl had hardly left her
before the latch of the gate was raised,
and In another moment Roger came rap
idly toward her.
He looked heated, as though he had
been walking fast, but It was n white

he was III. or that he had heard some-

"Something dreadful has happened.

made her sit ilown. fr the sudden shock
had turned her IttM white. She moid
not say more at that moment.
"We do not know yet." he half whls

seemed to come Into her mind, like the
sudden flash of a sunbeam out of ft pass

she must remember that. As Roger went
down to 0M-n the gates she comjielled
herself to return to the house.
