In your good grocea?" lie began. In
playfulness, that waa lost In earnest-
neaa before he finished lila speech. I
have tried to persuade myself that your
cold avoidance of me for weeks past,
gnd your rej.ct oa of my arrrhw whom
ever It Is possible for you to dispense
with them, was. In part, an unfounded
fancy of my own, and partly the re-
sult of your abaorpUon In the dear
duty that hns demanded your tlnie
and thoughts. I have begun lately to
have other feara- dreads lest I had un-
wittingly wounded or displeased you.

You have offered none-uone what-

emphasis "1 am sorry my manner has
given rise to such apprehensions.
That Is not spoken like the frank
slater of a month ago." said IMwanl,
retaining the hand ahc would have

sometimes that I am not quite sane.
I hnve gone through much suffering,

enduring the real and present trial.
And heaven knows how unready I w

"One word, my dear girl, and my In-
quisition Is over. Assure me honestly
and without fear of wounding me, have
you ever. In your most secret thought,

nearly widowed you? 1 did try. aB yon
can bear me witness, to dissuade him
whom we both love from the experi-

Into bis face-and spoke calmly. "The

Mr. Withers glanced nround when he
had given Ills assent. "Come In. my

be through this little matter."
HE dropped Into
chair near the door,
her heart palpitat-
ing with force that
beat every drop of
blood from her
rbeeks. Borne sud-
den and awful
change must have
taken place while
she was out to call
for the presence of
these men. Her frame wns chill as
with the shadow of death, but the one
overpowering thought that smote her
was that her husband'* approaching de-
cease was the direct answer of an angry
Judge to her wicked outcry ngalnst her
fate and longings, to escape lt. In this
grisly shape waa the freedom to appear
for which she had panted. But she
knew that when the cnge was torn
down she would feel like a murderess.
She never forgot the ahort-llved horror
of that moment.
Mr. Withers dismissed his visitors

names to the will, and they bower,

shoulders. "I beg a million pardons,
I am sure."
"Yon need not beg one!" said the

—shaking her black curls—"Mrs. With-

well to believe quite all you say. We
must not forget, my dear madam,
that men were deceivers ever."
- "You speak feelingly," said Edward,
carelessly,following Constance with hi?
eye, as she moved silently toward her
husband's chamber. "I shall caution
the lady of my love—should the gods
ever bestow one upon me—not to sip of
the bitter waters of your wisdom."
Had he seen the glitter of the round,
black orbs that pursued his retiring
figure, he might have made a more
thoughtful exit, his run down the stairs
been lees swift, the air he hummed, as
he went, lees gay.
He had a pleasant drive; Constance

noss. It was difficult to bear her part

Intercourse of other days, without re-
laxing the severe guard she had set
upon herself from the moment she dis-
covered the true nature of the senti-
ment she cntertajned for her husband's
brother. She could not help delight-
ing in his society, in the manifold
proofs of loving concern for her com-
fort and happiness of which she was the
recipient. Yet, underlying this secrct
and fleeting Joy, was the ever-present
shame that markeu her remembrance
of her guilty weakness, and the despair-
ing knowledge that remorse, duty and
resolve had thus far availed nothing
to conquer it.
She looked Jaded rather tht* refresh-
ed upon her return, although she had
curtailed the ride in opposition to Ed-
ward'B advice. Wild, rebellious
thoughts fought for mastery within her
all the while she was with him. the
promptings of an insane familiarity she
could not cast out. "If I had met him
two years ago instead of his brother,
and he had wooed me, the love which
is now my disgrace would have been
my glory," she was tempted to repeat,
again and again. "Yet my fitness to
receive his affection and my need of
him are the same to-day as they wero
then. Is he the less my companion

cause, led by other's counsels, I blun-

Then, shaking off the spell, she would

naturally exceedingly perplexed. Aware
that any attempt to soothe her would
be awkward work to him. he lay quiet
for a minute, hoping the emotion would
expend itself without his Interference.
Finally, he adjudged It to be but reas-
onable that she should set the bounds
of her grief at a jjolnt somewhat short
of hysterics or convulsions, and ad-
dressed her with the most stringent ap-
peal he could think of.

He did not mean to bo unkind or Bel-

that tho recollection of this would set
her to rights. The experiment succeed-
ed to a charm. The sobbing flow of
briny drops was stanched on the In-

It was inevitable that the confession

his arrangements for her future, be-
traying with a child's artlessness tho
perfectness of bis trust In his brother
and in herself, the full outflow of pen-
itence, and depreciation, and entreaty
for pardon, of which the tears were
but the type and premonition, should
be chocked by the querulous reference
to his personal discomfort. But the sud-
den and disagreeable reaction Induced,
by It was hardly an excuse for the hard-
ening of her heart and dulling of tho
sensibilities, just now so tender, which
filled her mind with sullen rcsentmenl

fidence. "He will never understand
me. We are as antagonistic as oil and
water," she excused this by thinking.
