PRICE: S2.00 A YEAR IN ADVANCE. The Other Man’s Wife. A MOST CHARMING STORY OF EARLY LOVE BY JOHN STRANGE WiNlER. CHAPTER I. “We must ail die, and not the old alone, The youLg have no exemption from that doom.” ) (The 'chill of death reigned over the Bishop’s home Episcopal Palace at Blank- bampton, the awe of a great change had fallen over the old city. For on the pre vicus day, Edward, by Divine Providence, Lord Bishop of the Diocese, had been carried to his last long home in the Cloisters of bis Cathedral Church. The townsfolks had scarce as yet begun to wonder who would be the new Bishop. They were full of the quite scholarly graces of the departed prolate—they had forgotten how often they hadblarred him for not having been more prominent among them, for beiDg so gentle, so full or humility ana all those meek qualities which, as a kind of rep to on; consciences, we make a point of attribntirg to Christ, and which almoBt universally we utterly despise in the man! Yes, they had for gotten all the irritations, the petty irrita tions of the part; their spiritual head, sanctified by great sufferings, had become to them a dear saint in glory, whose blameless life among them wcu’d be a fright hereon to guide them on that daik road which we must ail iread one day. Perhaps there Is no irony so caustic as the iroDy of events! A great spiritual lord was looming In the distance, the not far distal ce, who would be in most things wbat the- good folk or Biacli hampton hsd wished in him who had just loft them; a 1 ig,heavy jowl* d man oi great dignity of bearing, po: den us at d arrogant, a pat ron of Christianity rather than a servant of Cbrisl; a man w ho would make a ruie of being promirent among his people, who wcuid be their superior in things of earth as well as in things cl Heaven, a man who would seldrof the*® be affable ard if he did vco' er Ten Xh 'j make all Beholders wish fti^- ? with a ca ' n,r uot, a man of the Really, James, you have surprised me. Certainly another cover must be laid. He will probably stay to luncheon.” And when she was left alone, Lady Gas coigne knew both past and present as clearly as if she had been Dr. Trevor himself—she knew why so many men who had loved her beautiful daughter had ridden away hopeless and disappoint ed, she saw it all plainly enou h now and she went straight past the boudoir door to her own room and never pat in an ap pearance until the lunch boll rang Meantime Lady Constance had gone unsuspiciously to her visitor and found, instead of a portly old Bistop, an eager eyed, broad shouldered man who held out two trembling hands atd came to meet her with two eager words upon his lips— ‘ My darling—my darling ” and for an swer Lady Constance went to him with out any pretence of shyneas, like a child to its mother. ‘-I did not know who it was,” she said, with a gladdening in her v,fica. And by and bye when her ladyship came in, which she did with outstretched hand. Lady Constance cried, “Mother, you knew!” “James told me,” she answered, and then she looked rather hard at her daugh ter and he d out her band. “I am so happy, Mother,” Lady Con - stance whispered with a blush. “Lady Goscolgne—” began the Bishop, when she stopped him. “You need say nothing—I see it all,” Bhe said. ‘ You shall talk to L^rd Gas coigne presently. Will you give me your arm down the stairs? ’ It was not usual for them to go down with ceremony at that hour, and Lady Gascoigne never felt the need of an arm at any time, but during the few steps they took together, the Bishop un derstood that it was all light and that his new honors made the way smooth and easy for him. And the Bishop gave the iuteil'gent James a couple of sovereigns bt for-, he left the heu-ie, to the furtuer enlighten ment of that functionary.
