The end justifies the means. It is for the mutual good of the young folks that 1 am working. Besides all is i'itir in war. I’ll play the spy.’ And, with this reflection, the colonel ensconed himself behind a thick clump of shrubs, which grew in front of one of the pillars that supported the balcony of the hunting lodge. ‘But why have you brought us tliis way, mamma?’ said Arabella, as they walked down the drive and came opposite to the house in which Sir Arthur had lived alone for the last month. ‘We have al ways hitherto avoided entering or leaving the park by this gate.’ ‘I have my reasons, child.’ ‘May I inquire what they arc V ‘Because I wish to see tor my selfhow the land lies; anil wheth er your husband is really the re cluse that has been reported.’ ‘I am sure I wish, with all my heart and soul, that this unlucky different 1 had never taken place. It has made me wretched—miser able; and I feel certain fhut bo is as unhappy as l am, for I am sure lie loves me dearly.’ ‘Then lie has a queer way of showing it,’ replied the mother, with extreme acerbity. ‘Well, mamma, if the truth must be told, I had no business to speak tts I did to him about that invitation to the house where lie would have met Lady Denham, for after all, I don’t believe, and didn’t believe, that he eared one jot for her. No; he loved nte too well for that.’ ‘Humph ! At any rate he ought to have given you your own way in the matter when he saw that you did not wish him to go. Besides, didn't he nearly cause your death V ‘Well, as to that, mamma, to lady’s remark. worthy of my daughter.’ ‘8o say I, too ami so your sou-in law shall say shortly, you old crocodile !’ muttered the colonel, us he came forward, apparently from the interior of the hunting lodge. ‘Ah !’ said he, with a cour teous bow. ‘Lady Glendale, un less 1 am greatly mistaken V ‘Colonel Mordaunt! You here? ‘At your service.’ ‘1 was not aware of your visit We were just about to take a walk as far as the village. Allow me to introduce my daughter Ara bella.’ ‘My charming niece,I presume?' replied he. ‘Yes. You will do us the hon- nor, 1 hope, of making the Man or House your homo as long as you remain in this neighborhood ?’ ‘Well, I had promised myself that pleasure, maddam,’ respon ded he, with affected melancoly ; ‘hut it is impossible to abandon our relations in the midst of mis fortune, you know. I must share the exile of my poor nephew.” ‘Have you seen him ?’ inquired Arabell, eagerly. ‘Alass ! yes.’ ‘And he has told you?’ asked Lady Glendale, with lmuteur. ‘All, madam. Ho even gave mo a sight of your ‘ultimatum “lie has boon very much to blame Colonel.’ ‘Oh, very much—very much in deed,’ replied the old military fox. ‘But, after all, Colonel, as lie ttsks to lie forgiven ’ inter posed A rubella. ‘He docs not merit forgiveness —at all events, not yet my deal young lady. No, ho does not merit it. I have made him feel that he is quite unworthy of yotit clemency, and lie will implore it no longer.' ‘But if, on the conditions pro posed we consent to ubsolve him?’, said the mother-in-law. ‘No no, Lady Glendale ! You have been too kind, too indulgent,! His fault has been great, and he ought to expiate it.’ ‘But he has been expatingit my dear uncle, for a whole month,’ said the young bride, with truth fill cincerity. ‘A month ! what is a month?' replied the astute old soldier, who saw plainly which way the wind was blowing. ‘I’m sure it is a very long time indeed,’ responded she, with un doubted feeling. ‘Silence foolish girl;’ whispered the mamma. ‘I will even go further,’ ootimuxl the colonel, ‘and I will say that in atonement for such acts as he has ommitted, the repentance of a whole life would be ’ “Oh, no, no. no ! Really, real ly ’ But here the sound of fiddles playing a country dance prevail ed the conclusion of the young confess the fact, my life was nev er in the least danger.’ ‘Eh ! whats that ?’ muttered the colonel to himself, behind his sylvan screen.

At this moment the young bar onet’s voice was again heard above all the din and clatter. ‘Stay ! Stop a moment! Be fore we begin the dance I’ll give you a toast 1 Fill me a half pint bumper of hot elder wine ! Ah, that's 1 it! Here’s to the health of Mr. and Mrs. G ! Long may they live and happy may they be !’ I lark ! that’s his voice?’ said the remorseless colonel. Again the same well known tones came echoing forth from the cottage garden. ‘And now fill me another bum per of this splendid elder 1 Here’s to all well governed households 1’ And now there rang out ecsas- tic shouts of ‘Hurrah, hurrah l Long live Bir Arthur. Long live our landlord !’ ‘Yes; there lie is in the centre of the throng V said the colonel to the two ladies. “How horribly disgraceful !’ ex claimed the indignant and exas» persted dowager. ‘Look, look! Cun I believe niy eyes?’ ejaculated poor Arabella, ‘lie is kiss ing Funny!’ •Yes, lie is, indeed! But it is ouly to divert his melancholy!’ said the col onel, as sententiously as if the ghost of Maehiavolli were prompting hint. ‘Good gracious me! And now lie's kissing another girl!’ cried the half mud young wife, in tones that would liavo molted the heart of any human heiug save that of the terrible old uncle, ‘I—I —I can hour it no longer. 1 1 ‘Ii is only to divert his melancholy/ said he, in the same smooth, measured voice. ‘I tell you 1 can’t bear it!
