CHAPTEH VII. (Continued.) ;
And Fenner, trembling and cringing
like a betaten spaniel, went quickly out
Errol returned to his writing table, and
commenced a letter to Winifred Kyre.
He had served her now; would she be
more disposed' to look leniently on nil
offense, and let her love conquer her wom
anly pride. "I will at least make the trial
before I go," he aaid to himself, and then
he took up his pen and wrote thus:
"I Inclose you a note. Miss Eyre, from
the man Fenner. You will ee by that
that he engages to discontinue hii an
noyance of you, and to leave you for the
future free and unmolested. And now,
v,-fno i Kn viand on my long voy
age, I pray of you to hear the appeal of
my heart to yours.' Winifred, I love you
with all my soul, with the truest, deep
eat strength of which passion la capable,
and I come to you to decide my future.
My happiness, my misery, are in your
hands. It la for you to seal my perfect
blits by consenting to become my cherish
d wife, or to punish a fault born of love,
and to condemn me to a lifelong sorrow,
by dt'ving me away from the sunshine of
your presence. Do not decide hastily. I
shall not leave this for a week, and If
your anawer is what I scarcely dare to
hope it will be, I shall not leave at all.
If you cannot find It In your gentle, wom
anly heart to forgive me, I shall go out
into the world and seek to forget the only
in th world I ever really loved.
When Winifred broke the seal, and read
Errol's letter, her first emotion was one
.f intnn.o relief. Then, reading the avow
al of Errol's love, for a moment her heart

eyes. Then her quick pride came to the
rescue-she tore the letter io mums
threw them from her. "I will never for
give him never!" she cried, passionately;
and then she thought what that letter
would have been to her if it had come a
few days sooner.
It wanted but one day to the comple
tion of the week, when Arthur Le Mar

arrived, save one. That one was Wini
fred Eyre. On the morning of the day
on which she and her cousin were to have
appeared at Endon Vale, a letter came
to Lady Grace, saying that Madame de
Montolleu was seriously 111 with an at
tack of bronchitis, and that until she
was sufficiently recovered Winifred could
not leave ber.
Miss Champion, of course, arrived all
the same. and. If the truth must be told,
she was very well satisfied with what
had occurred. The Idea of driving over
to Endon Vale with her cousin had been
most distasteful to her; and now that ahe
was relieved from that unpleasant neces
sity she was radiant, and, as her broth'
er, who accompanied her, remarked, In a
moat unusually good temper.
The greater part of Lady Grace Far-
nuhar's auests were strangers to her.
Those she knew were Lord Harold Ers-
kins, Miss Alton, the Honorable Evelyn
Van and his sister. As the reader will
nasi some time In the company of the
visitors at Endon Vale, It may not be
superfluous to enter Into a few partlcu
lars concerning them. Lord Harold Ers
kine has already been mentioned; so we
will begin with Mr. Francis Clayton,
who from his couslnshlp to the host
claims priority of mention.
Francis Clayton was a man who would
have completely baffled the researches of
those estimable people who persistently
find good In everyone. There was not an
amiable trait In bis character, nor a kind
action of his on record; and yet he passed
muster In society, because he possessed
a certain degree of manner, and because
his income was a very large one. He was
not a man to charm women, and yet there
was many a one wno would nave Deen
too,i Thev had soent a pleasant aner-
noon together, and just aa the wheels of
the returning carriages were heard, Lady
Grace sent her young friend away te

way to the drawing room. This she did,
and when they entered the drawing room
there was no one in It but Lord Harold
Erskine, who came up immediately to be
"Harold," said his aunt, "I leave Miss
Eyre to your charge until dinner time, so
do your best to amuse her."
Lord Harold forthwith devoted nimsen

quite at her ease, and chatted gayly to
him. Presently the door at tne runner
end of the room opened and a magnifi

boast that be had never made any woman
an offer of marriage.
Miss Alton bad been at Endon Vale
some days, and was a great favorite with
everyone In the house. Her aunt, Lady
Marlon, was In Ireland, and as she was
not particularly attached to her prim old

glad to accept Lady Grace's invitation to
set her heart upon, and that was to prac
tically adopt Winifred Eyre as her pro
teae. if not as a daughter. She was very
anxious that Winifred should have an
opportunity of being Introduced to so
ciety and the coming shooting season at
Bir Claxton's estate. Endon Vale seemed
to afford Lady Grace the opportunity.
Among those who would be present for
the shooting, her nephew, Lord Harold
Erskine, who was quite taken with Flora
Champion and whom she knew that
young lady, in default of becoming Mrs.
Hastings, would only too gladly accept.
With this trump card In her hand, Lady
Grace accepted a dinner invitation at
Hurst Manor, the home of the Cham
Dlons. and while there delicately, yet
plainly Insinuated to Sir Howard and to
Mrs. Champion that unless airs. inam-
plon and Flora would drive with her to
Mr. EyTe's farm and second her invita
tion to Winifred to come to Endon Vale
there would be no invitation for Miss
Champion. Moreover, Flora would have
to bind herself to treat her cousin with
t least ordinary courtesy during their
stay In the same house.
Sir Howard acceded readily enough to
this arrangement as long as he was not
obliged to speak to bis granddaughter,
whom he had never spoken to or even
seen in his life or In any way to recog
nlze her father. It was a bitter pill for
Mrs. Champion and Flora to swallow, but
the thought that It Flora did not go to

possibly fall In love and propose to ini

' The young girl was gathering roses In
the garden as the carriage from the
Manor drove up the road. She turned
away to the house. She could net bear
the contemptuous looks the Champions
cast on her as they went by. But then
she heard the carriage stop, and she look
ed back in surprise. The footman was
letting down the steps, and Mrs. Cham
pion was descending, followed by Lady
Grace Farquhar. What could It meant
The blood rushed to her face, and for a
moment she hesitated. Then she went

shook hands with her, and uttered a few
polite commonplaces, which put W Inl

Mrs. Champion was struck by t'-ie tasts
and elegance displayed in the miniature
drawing room, and while Winifred was
talking to Lady Grace, she examined
her keenly. She was forced to confess
to herself that this girl who had been so
long Ignored, and so much disdained, was
both elegant and pretty, and that her
style was unexceptionable. The convic
tion did not please ber at all. As they
were taking leave Lady Grace sald:

one of vulcanizing, comparable in some
respects with Bessemer's process of

invention of Mr. Powell, a Liverpool
merchant The treatment to which the
timber is subjected Is, roughly speak
ing, that of saturation at boiling point
with a solution of sugar, the water be

temperature. The result Is to leave
the pores and interstices of the wood
filled in with solid matter, and the
timber vulcanized, preserved and sea

changed to a tough and hard sub
