little steamer went up the river, and
the wares, taking advantajre of the ,
confusion, ran and kissed the green ,
bank and were off again before the j
preen bank had time to protest rrom
the top deck of the Gadfly came a song
to the ears of Mr. Stewart, of Throg
morton street, and of yonng Mrs.
Stewart, that they wore beginning to
know quite well, albeit Miss Bagge,
the singer, had only been there since
the morning. Miss Sagge accom
panied herself on the banjo, and ac
companied herself all wrong: ;'
" I'm s little Alsbenner eooa.
Ant been bore very loot."
"I wonder," said little Mrs. Stewart
"I wonder, now, how many mora
times she's goinf to play thatt"
"My dear Iotc," said Mr. Stewart,
ttmg down on the bank.

The shrill voice came across tn
"Hush a-bye font you ay, mammy's tints
"Boat ahor." called Stewart
The boy on the Gadfly came up from
somewhere and pulled over to taem, '
and conveyed them to the houseboat I
Hiss Bagge, looking down from be
.ween the Chinese lanterns, gave a lit
tle shriek of delight as their boat
jumped at the side of the Gadfly.
"Oh, yon newly-married people," she
cried, archly, as she bunched up her
:irts andcame skittishly down the
:ps; "where have you been? Leaving
nor little me alone with my music for !
iscu a time.
"Did yon say music Miss Bagger
"'Yea, dear Mrs. Stewart My banjo,

"Afraid ynu don't Uke plantation

"I used to think I did, Mia Bagge."
Stewart had gone along to get some-
thing iced to drink and something in ,
"How things change, Mrs. Stewart,
dont they? I'm sure it doesn't seem
aix years ago hem Mr. Stewart and
I and ma and two or three others came ;

before your day, before you came over '
from Melbourne, and we did really
have the most exquisite time." !
"Have yon looked through the even- j

Then was a pause. The rings of
smoae xrom oiewarte cigar ue
other end of the boat floated down by i
them. The boy below broke a few j
plates and danced a few step of j
breakdown to cover the noise. , j
"Dear Henry! How the scent of his

Miss Bagge went obediently and
strummed her banjo, and mentioned
once more that she was a little Ala
bama coon, and young Mrs. Stewart
ran hurriedly to her husband.
"I'm going to quarrel with bar," ah
"That's right," said Henry, calmly;
"anything to stop that row."
"I'm going to ask her to go baok to

Young Mn Stewart sauk down on
a low deck-chair and gasped and
looked across at the two.
"Well," she said, "this now la fear
ful." There would be a good half an hour
before Ilcnrv returned, and in that
good half hour it was nectary to de
cide wliat was to he done. What was
quite clear was that the creature must
have had some encouragement to in
duce her to write such a letter, and
'Why, she is taking his arm!" ah
Indeed, Miss Constance Bagge was
resting her hand upon the arm of Mrs.
Stewart's husband. Henry was carry
ing her banjo, and, looking back,
laughingly waved it at his wife.
"Does this mean." asked Mrs. Stew-
that they will
never come baok?"
The letter seemed to explain his
slight diffidence In agreeing to the
lady's dismissal; It explained also why
when Miss Bagge had that morning
made her unexpected appearance on
the bank hailing the boy with a shrill
"mi" Henry had only laughed very
Mrs. Stewart summoned the boy.
"Yea, mem, there is a trine up liter
than this. It leaves Thame Ditton at
eieten fifteen, and you get to good old
Waterloo at about ten to twelve. And
t lump too quiet for m."
That would give half an hour to
mk her mind to Henry (if he did
come back), just half an hour to ex-
tract from him a confession, and then
t rush for the last train up. At Water-
loo ishe could take a cab to Uncle
George'; and If Uncle George couldn't

"He has managed to say good-bv,
then?" said Mrs. Stewart, fiercely. "I
should like to have seen the parting."
Henry came on board and went
straight to her, and, with the assur
ance of new husbands, kissed her neck.
"She's an impossible creature," aaid

and took an evening paper from his

it goes: 'Just a the wind sigh for

Why, tbs wind doesn't sigh for the
seashore, does it?"
"Go on, please," she aaid quickly;
"read the rest of the letter. Is it r-

i "Look for yourself, dear. It's too

"Why," cried Mrs. Stewart, "that'

. "A what?"
"It doesn't matter, dear."
She took from her blouse the letter
that the disappointed Miss Bagge,
with deplorable lack of originality,
bad copied from the evening paper.
"Don't people do some silly things,
Winifred, dear, when they are in love?"
She took a marguerite from th
bowl on the table and stuck it in bis
hair. Then she tore np the letter and
gave the pieces a little puff to send
them out on the stream.
