Mrs. Savllle turned from htm with undisguised contempt, and addressed herself to George Lumley. "80 you are staying at the Court? How does your regiment, or - your troop, get on without your valuable as sistance r "Disagreeable old cat!" thought Lumley, while he said, "Ob, I ride over very other day. and the Intermediate ones they stumble on as best they can without me." "I thought you were going dawn to llerondyket" "Here's metal more attractive." said 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 you teein, George." "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," scornfully, "Very probably, my dear aunt." -What Is the matter with youT" '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 tim's cheek, "but I knew quite well you could not stand Mrs. Savllle for long,' In a low tone, "Ob, yes, I can," said Hope, smiling a brave defiance. "Don't you think I am likely to have worries and bad news apart from poor Mr. Savlller "Well, I suppose so; but It did not occur to me. She Is not popular, you know, though I always get on with her. I am going to play a bold stroke Just now; It will astonish you all. 'Nothing venture nothing have,' you know." '"Jockey of Norfolk, be not too bold,'" quoted Miss Desmond, with a 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 tA 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. You have been a good deal on the Con tinent. I believe. Miss Desmond!" "i have traveled occasionally In my aunt's lifetime." "Ahl and enjoyed It. 1 dare sayt" "Yes; but I also enjoy returning to England." "Indeed! Well. 1 do not. The mo ment I set toot on my native soil, I cease to be a free man; Invisible detec tives put me In social Irons: cruel warders Imprison me with adamantine barriers, where I am obliged to eat and drink and speak and have my be ing according to rigid rules.

Still, a few of them are advan tageous; though I do not see that money can purchase any essential of life." "That depends very much on what you consider essentials." "That Is true Dut Miss Dacre Is going to make a speech," for that young lady had said. In An audible tone. "I am going to tell you a story.' "1 know," whispered Lord Everton, "If her pockets had alwaya been emp ty, ahe would have known better bow to hold her tongue." , "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 she posed herself on an ottoman and every one turned towards her. "Scene a dark, stormy night, a distant sea, one of Her 'Majesty's big ships tossing about on the waves, which make noth Ing of ber bigness.

"This Is suicide,' exclaimed the captain.

"Most dramatic," said Lord Everton. "Worthy of Drandram," added George Lumley. "I don't exactly see " began Richard Savllle. "No, ot course you do not; there la nothing to see exactly," Interrupted Miss Dacre, quickly. "I have heard the tale before. The only difference Is that the weather was not quite so stormy as your correspond ent represents it," said Mr. Rawson, playing with his double glasses. "It was really mum worse than I represent," exclaimed Miss Dacre, with an air of profound conviction. "Now, does no one want the name ol my berot" There was a moment's pause. Mrs. Savllle sat silent In her armchair. Lumley's laughing oyoa sought Miss Desmond's, but shu was sheltered be hind a massive urn which always ap peared at tea-time.
