was alwutthls time that; I received
letter from home, informing me that
"kx1 Mr. Turner" vim about to pay a
visit to the metropolis; and closely follow
ing upou tlio hiiiitH of this announcement
nine good Mr. Turner himself to call
pon me, It being very evident that he
had been commissioned to inspect and re
sort upon my humble abode by my
mother, who hae an ineradicable convlor
tlon that, when absent from her, I nevof
attempt to make myself comfortable. Mr.
Turner, urbane and patronizing on of old.

breakfast anil waa kind enough to Join me

"1 km staying at a hotel," he went on
to say. "Dear Hilda thought It beat that

1 said I wan quite mire of that; and In.
dead the reasons in queitlon did not strike
me a being o( a recondite character.
But Mr. Turner thought It Decennary to
give hie vei'Mlon of them. "Bracknell,"
he continued, "la, I am persuaded, both
kind hearted and well meaning and would
not hurt my feelings for the world; but

precisely congenial to me, and he haa con

all risk of unpleasantness should be
avoided, and therefore she haa kindly se

aver, to tell them that eggs disagree with
Now I knew very well that Bracknell
might use langnage fit to make a bargee's
hair stand on end before the llev, Simeon
would dare to nplltt his voice in rebuke;
but I said, with atrlct adherence to the
truth, that I had no doubt he would find
himself more oouifortable in his present
quarters than in Wilton place; and he
presently rmnameci, signing a little, that
the only thing lie regretted waa being cut
an man tne society or ins grauuson.
"Hud I been tinder the same naif with
Running," he added, rather natlwtlcallv.
"we could havu amused ourselves together
without getting Into anybody's way; but
1 dare say they will let him come and see
sue when it can be managed."
Poor old Turner's adoration of his
grandson was quite niion a level with
that of Lord Staines, and the little fellow
was fond ol him too, although their na
tures were so iinllku. .
After Mr. Turner had conferred a few
Wordaiif pntninusing encouragement upon
me (he had a great disdain, tempered by
neuovoieuce, lor dwellers In Orub street)
and after he had ambled away with lus
mbrella under his arm. I began to feel
very sorry for him in his loneliness, and
It occurred to me that I should be doing
an act of true Christian churiiy by giving
nini and tne other gramltather a (lay's
anting with their common descendant.
Aud, being In such an amiable motid, I
thought 1 might combine this good deed
with tlit bestowal of a certain amount of
harmless pluuaure upon two othor persona,
as wull as a fairly .earned holiday upon
myself. So, having concocted my scheme,
' 1 imparted it to Jim in the course of the
slay, and he juniied at it with enthusiasm.
We had alreuily agreed to revisit Eton
together some tuno before the close of the
season, but to me belongs all the credit of
the happy suggestion tliut Ixird Staines,
Liuly Mildred, Running and Mr. Turner
ahould tie added to our party. Jim rep
resented that he waa particularly anxious
to oarry out tula plau, because it would
cheer up Lord Hlaluos, who had been look
ing tired and worried of bite; and of course
that may have beeu his motive. But he
disagreed with me quite sharply when I
aald that it would be kind to take the old
gentleman off Lady Mildred's hands for a
any, and leave her to enjoy her liberty in
London. b
"She wouldn't enjoy it at all," he de
clared; "it would be about the hut thing
In the world that she would bo likely to
enjoy. Besides, I don't believe old Staines
would go without her. Now, 1 do hope
C won't put forward that idea, Harry;
use if you do, the whole thing la oer
taiu to fall through."
8o 1 said that, in that case, I wouldn't
put it furwunl; and as both Lady Mildred
and her father, received our proposition
favorably, it only remained for us ta beg
leave of absence for Kunuing and let Mr.
Turner know of the treat that was lu store
for him. The Brackuells we did nut ask;
because, for one thing, they would oer
tainly have declined, and also (which waa,
perhaps, inure to the purpose) because w
didn't want them.
We all went down from Pnddlngton
together lu a saloon carriage, Lord Staines
as brisk as a bee, Mr. Turner benignly
complacent, Sunning dividing his muni
tions with strict impartiality between his
' two grandfathers, so as to avoid making
either of them jealous, and Lady Mildred
and Jiui.couversiug quietly In a .corner.
' We reached our destination pretty early
in the ai'Lcntoou; and since it was such'
beautiful, hot summer weather that no
old gentlemuu could possibly be the worse
fur being taken out upoii .the river, we
drove straight to the ljroe,as.' .There- w ;
hired a roomy oraft, inui;iwli(i:h we psflkud

memory of lioril Staincs"iichool ijrnda
was cbcrlnhcd only by a very smalli band
of survivors, but the old man ran over
their names and their exploits, one by
one, relating the merry life that he had
led with them aud the astounding breach
es of disclnlltujf which they had been
guilty, until at length Mr. Turner, tak
ing heart of grace, ventured to doubt
Whether the doings described would haw
been tolerated by any head master worthy
of his high and responsible post.
"My dear fellow," said Lord Staines,
with superb contempt, "what do you

But of course you don't understand Eton
traditions. You were educated at Har
row, or some such place, weren't you?"
But Mr. Tunier waa flushed with wine,
and did not choose to be sat upon. "Bar
rovlans may be poor sort of creatures in
your opinion, Lord Staines,'? he returned;
"but at any rate we can generally show
an eleven good enough to beat yours at
cricket." Which was an extremely rude
thing to aay, besides being very false.
I don't know whether the harmony of
the evening might not have been seriously
interfered with by this unexpected on
slaught of the lamb upon the lion, had
not Jim Jumped np, saying that tf we
were going to take a look round Eton we
really ought not to lose any more time.
Obviously, a single vehicle could not con
tain us all; so Jim and Ijuly Mildred
walked on ahead, while the rest of ns
packed ourselves iuto a fly and were driven
as far as the entrance of the school yard.
Here Lord Staines Insisted upon getting
out. and managed, with the help of my
arm aud his stick, to hobble for some dis
tance across the flag stones which have
been worn smooth by the passing feet of
so many generations. Mr, Tunier and
Snunlng wandered away, it waa getting
late and close upon lock up time, so that
we had the place to ourselves,

arm, paiucd and looked about lum a Utile
"1 reuollect," lie said, "coming down
here one election Saturday, It was Just
before Bracknell left; and you and Leigfa
were leaving at the same time, you know.
I walked back from Upper Club with
Bracknell, and I remember, that we
stopped and talked for a moment Just
ubout the very spot where we are stand-,
tug now. He told me he had backed my
horse, Jupiter Touans, by Thunderer, for
the Letter, and I warned him that he had
better hedge, because, as 1 dare say you
are aware, Thunderers never stay; and
sure enough, Jupiter Twang finished
third. I thought at the tune that he
would have stood a little more preparation
but no matter; Well, you know, May
nard, 1 suspect that what applies to horses
applies pretty much to ourselves. One
hears a good deal about education and
training, and example, aud this, that, and
the other; but when all's said and done,
it's breeding that has the last word. ' Like
father, like son. I have been recklesB and
extravagant all my life; he has followed
in my footsteps, and the upshot of it la
that we're both deueed nearly ruined,

Lord btalues shook his head. "Brack
nell ought to have married money. . X al
ways told him so. He chose to marry the
parson's daughter, and it caused a cool-1
ness between us, as you will remember. I
oould have overlooked his imprudence and
disobedience; but, you see, 1 didn't think
he had behaved well In the matter no; 1
didn't think he had behaved well."
"It doesn't much signify now," I re
marked. "Not muob now, perhaps; but it was
hard upon poor Leigh at the time, and ha
felt it mure than 1 should have expected.
He was speaking to me about it not long
since. He is a good fellow, that; I wish
he had a little more money. I looked at
him and Mddred this afternoou, and 1
thought to myself, 'I wish be had a little
more money I' Only fancy, you know."

So we moved slowly away to Weston's
Yard, where the fly was waiting for us,
aud where the other members of our Bmull
party were already assembled- Jim
climbed up .on to the , box and we wera
driven awayito tha station, Sunning fall
ing asleep before half the distance had
been accomplished, aud uoue of us bilking
much. It was natural that wo should be
a little tired aud disinclined for conversa
tion on the return journey. I myself, I
believe, had a nap iu the comer of the sa
loon carriage, uud even If I had been
awake I could not have scrutinized the
oountennnees of my fellow travelers in
that dun light; but when we alighted in
the fidl glare of Paddiugton station, I
could not help noticing how pale Jim was,
nd that Lady Mildred's eyea wore aus
piciously rod., ... ;.. ,
Lord bluinos shook hands with me on
the platform. -."Good nightt Maynard,"
he said, "good night, uud thank you for

I felt tolerably sntaJUiat I should not
have to wait long befonil'eccirlng a visit
and a full confession from.. Jim, When,
however, he nuly presented himself at my
chambers, his avowal did tiot prove to be
m an respect what i iir.d anticipated.
"Harry, old fellow," ho begau, after he
had cast h.niself down upon my sofa and
had assumed a most woe begone air, "Pre
lost my self respect."
4I shall be very pleased to assist you In
looking anontfor it," 1 rcijlied cueerfullv.
"and I dare say, hctwoen us, we shall
manage to discover It again. It waa mis
laid, 1 presume, somewhere In Windsor or
Kton on the afternoon or evening of the
auta mstantf"
Ho nodded. VWell, yes; I suppose so.
At any rate, I wasn't quite certain of the
loss until then. Of course, with your
sharp eyes, you saw long ago how matters
were going with mo; but I give you my
honor that I didn't. Not that it would
have made any difference if I had; for
one can't help these things. If you had
asked me, any time during tha last six
years, whether I could ever love another
woman as I loved the one whom I waa
once so nearly marrying, I should have
laughed at you. Yet that is what has
happened to me; aud I confess that it
makes me feci a little uneasy and
I could not see why a man who has re
mained faithful all his life to woman
who has deceived him and thrown him
over should have any particular right to
respect himself tor being such a dolt, and
I said so; but Jim observed that I dfdat
seem quite to catch his meaning. '
"I owe nothing to Hilda," be said, "and
It stands to reason Unit if one has been
jilted, one is free. It Isn't to her that I
have been untrue; It's to myself. I'm too
stupid to explain myself; but six years is

self madly In love again, after having been
quite positive for six years :that that was

to no one lor plenary absolution.- At the
same time, if you are so very anxious to
frame an indictment against yourself, I
think that might be managed Without go
ing so fur afield. 1 don't blame you for
falling in love with Lady Mildred, for that
you couldn't help; but, since you must
know as well as I do that you can't marry
her, it might perhaps have been a little
more considerate not to tell her that you
loved her."
"Good Lord!" ejaculated Jim; "you
don't suppose I have told her, do you r
Wliv, I never kuew it myself until the
other day, down at Kton, when the truth
flashed upon me all of a sudden. It may
seem very ridiculous to you, but I assure
you that up to that moment I had beeu
under the Impression that I only cared for
her as a friend. And it is only as a friend
that she thinks of me.,"- ' '
"Really r" I said, sotnetthas staggered
by this announcement, 'Then excuse
my curiosity, but what made her eyes so
red after you aud she had beeu talking to

"Her eyes were red because she had
been crying," answered Jim, curtly. ,
He looked so savage that I did not Ilka
topress bun With further inquiries; but
he resumed by and by of his own accord:
"She had beeu telling me about her fami
ly affairs, and a nice mess they seemed to
have got into. There is no inducing Lord
Staines to economise. He haa left off rac
ing, but I believe that is the., only expense
that he baa put down, and of course he
has to support the Bracknells. In point
Of fact, I didn't come here to speak to you
about myself and Lady Mildred, becauss
that is a perfectly hopeless business, and
neither you nor anybody else can help me;
but I'm troubled In my mind about
Bracknell. He has been very kind and
pleasant to me since I have been back, but
I know he is in a sea of difficulties,

"I expected this," I Interrupted, in
tome vexation, "So much for his prom

money from you, and he is Just about as
likely to repay you as if he were a South

make up your mind that you, .will never

- -"Do let a man finish his sentence," re
monstrated Jim. "In the first, place, he
hasn't borrowed a shilliug of me, and iu
the second, It wouldn't distress me in the
least if he had borrowed a thousand

such a look of anxious deprecation on his
honest face that I had not tha heart to tell
him how extremely probable it was that
his apprehensions were well founded, al
though I could not go so far as to meet
him with the contradiction which he evi-
deully hoped for. So 1 only begged him
to be more explicit, .
