Lumley. melodramatically, with a wave
of his band towards Miss Dacre. who
was deep In conversation with Mr.
Rawson, on whom she was smiling
with her habitual belief In her own
power to fascinate all male creatures.
''Metal! Yes, I dare say. I some
times wonder If you are as foollth ni

"Ob, a good deal more so," said the
handsome hussar, showing his white
teeth In a pleasant smile. "You know
I haven't many Ideas."
"Yet I dare say you would be less
easily taken In than men who have,"
"Very probably, my dear aunt."

'asked Miss Dacre, In a low tone, draw
Ing a chair to the tea-table, wbere
Ifope Desmond presided. "You look
pale and 111, and aa It you bad been
crying. Pray forgive roe," she added,
seeing the quick color rise In her vic

could not stand Mrs. Savllle for long,'
In a low tone,

a brave defiance. "Don't you think I

somewhat tremulous smile.
"She has been crying I am certain
he has; though she is braving It out.
At any rate, she Is going to stick to
Mrs. Savllle. I wonder what she Is
saying to George Lumley. Nothing
amiable, I am sure,"
Here Lord Everton, who had been
sneaking to Savllle. and of whom the
aatetreM of the bouse bad not taken I
the slightest notice, approached and
begged for a cup of tea.
"It Is a beverage of which I am ex
tremely fond." he said, "and I think a
decided liking for tea ought to be a
patent ot respectability to any man.

tone. "I am going to tell you a story.'

"If her pockets had alwaya been emp

"This story came to me In a letter
from the wife of a cousin of mine
whose cousin was eye-witness ot the
adventure," Miss Dacre was saying, at

every one turned towards her. "Scene
