KUiusy., Then he heard his escort say: "My de.ar, you remember our old friend Phil Hayn, I'm sure." Phil looked up just In time to see Mrs. Tramlay's feoblo, nervous^faco twitch into surprise and something liko horror. Mr. Tramlay extended his hand, as a hint that his wife should arise—a hint which could not be Ignored after his hand had closed upon hers. Even when upon her feet, however, the lady of tho bouso seemed unable to frame a greeting. Had Phil been a city acquaint once, no matter how uninteresting, sho would have smiled evasively and told him she was delighted that he had been able to como, but what could a lady, at her own reception, Bay to a man in a sack coat and a hard rubber watch guard! Mrs. Trnmlay looked at her weak.proUi.i,; Lor !iu..b;;r«'.-fro-'. and nodded his bend impatiently; this panto- j mime finally stimulated Mrs. Tramlay to such a degreo that she was ablo to ejaculate. "'What a delightful surprise!" "Let me make you acquainted with some of the company," said tho host, drawing Phil away. "Don't feel uncomfortable; I'll explain that; you just dropped in from out of town, BO you couldn't bo expected to be In evening dress." Phil began to recover from his embarrassment, thanks to his host's heartiness, but also to the fact that tho strain had been too severe to last long. Ho slowly raised his eyes and looked about him, assisted somewhat by curiosity as to what "evening dress" meant. He soon saw that all tho gentlemen wore black clothes and white ties, and that tho skirts of the coats retired rapidly. Ho had seen such B coat before—seen itoftcu at Haynton, on ex-Judgo Dickman, who had served two terms in tha legislature and barely escaped going to congress. Tho only difference between them, was that tho judge's swallow tail coat was blue and had brass buttons— not a great difference, if ono considered the distance of New York and Haynton. "Upon my word,"exclaimed Tramlay, suddenly, "I don't believe you've met Lucia yet Here she is—daughter'" Lucia was floating by—a vision of tulle, Ivory, pSachblow and amber; she leaned on the arm of a young man, into whose face she was looking intently, probably as au excuse tor not looking at the unwelcome visitor. Her father's voico, however, she had always Instinctively obeyed; so sho stopped, pouted, and looked defiantly at Phil, who again dropped his eyes, a low bow giving him a pretext "Daughter," said Tramlay, "here's our old friend Phil, from Haynton. Now, don't spend the whole evening talking over old times with him, but Introduce him to a lot of pretty girls; you know them better than 1. Phil, you can explain to them how you struck a full dress reception just after lauding from a cruise; twill amuse them more. I'll warrant, than any story any showy young fellow can toll them this evening. It Isn't every young man who can have a good thing to tell against himself the first time he meets a new set" i During tho delivery of this long speech Xuciaeyed Phil with boldness and disfavor, but in obedience to her father she took Phil'* arm—an act that so quickly improved tha young man's opinion of himself that ho instantly felt at ease and got command of such natural graces as ho possessed; he was even enabled to look down at the golden head by his shoulder and snake some speeches bright enough to cheer Lucia's face. "It mayn't be so entirely dreadful, after all," thought the girl: "lean Introduce him to Mauds to whom 1 could afterward explain —friends who uro too good hearted to rnako spiteful remarks afterward. Besides, I can blame father for it. all girls have fathers whoso ways aro queer in one way or another." . While acting upon this plan, and finding, to her great relief, that Phil could talk courteous nothings to new acquaintances, sho suddenly found herself face to face with a man of uncertain ago but faultless dress and manner, who said: "Mayn't I be favored with an introduction! Your friend la being so heartily praised by your father that I am quite anxious to know him." "Mr. Marge, Mr. Hayn," said Lucia. Fbll'o proffered hand was taken by what seemed to be a bit of languid machinery, although encircled at ono end by a cuff and coat sleeve aud decorated with a seal ring. Phil scanned with Interest tho face before him, for he had often heard Mr. Marge mentioned when the Tromlny family were at Huynton. His look was returned by one that might have been a stare had it possessed a single- indication of Interest, surprise or curiosity. Mr. Marge bad rant young men before; ha had been seo- iug new faces for twenty-live years, and ono luorti or k-srf could uot rou&o him from tho compomro which ho hod been acquiring during all that tinio. "CrtU you spare your friand a few moments?" •aid {Mr. MarijD to Lucia. "I would tw glad U> introduce him to soma of tho gent' "You nru ver> UUul," uuirmuruvl who wtta living—^-' i>l:i< informal hvr rejoin SUJHO uf Iwr £ir! irleuilii and •itu-oiif Uia intrusion,. snro I pM--.5»il tlu'm," snid Mnrpc, er.haiit sniok- in such n n-uy that it. hid his Cnc« for tin instant "1 cnn't afford to wnrry my?"!f with informntimi that t\i rnfhnr not UFO." "Butono'fl p[iy?iquo," snid I'hil. "One's phys!i|uo liecoiiies q\iito obliiring •alien it, knows whnt is espotted of it." . I'hil mci.tiiHy s-bucht n. way of parains this unexpected obstacle; mpanwhilo, Margo breath'M lar.ily through his cignn-tto a moment or tv/o, and then paid: "Miss Trnmlay is a ehrirtmng girl." "Indewl she ia." Phil replied. "If she only woro" "Tut, tut, my dear sir," said Margo, "woman is divine, and it isn't good form to criticise divinity. Miss Tramlay is remarkably pretty; 1 trust wo agree at least upon that w-fo ground ?" "Pretty)" echoed Phil, before Marge had ceased speaking. "She is radiant—angelicl" Again Mr. Mnrgo enshrouded his face with smoke, after which he did not continue tho conversation, except to remark, "Yes." Phil studied tho color tone of tho room, and wondered why paper liko that on the wall had not been offered for snio by the storekeeper at Haynton; then ho resolved he would buy and take homo to his mother a chair just liko that In which ho was sitting, for it was so comfortable that ho felt as if he could fall asleep In It. Indeed, ho was already so oblivious to Marge and other human presence that he was startled when a gentle, rustle ushered (n Lucia, who exclaimed: "Phil, you must come back to tho parlor. Half a dozen girls are real envious because they haven't soen you at all, and half a dozen others want txi see more of you. Father has been sounding your praises until they're sure tho Admirable Crlcbton has como to life again." Phil attempted to rise—an awkward operation to a man previously unacquainted with Turkish chairs. Lucia laughed, aud offered hira assistance—it was only a little hand, but ho took it, and ns ho looked his thanks ho saw Lucia's face as lie had sometimes known it of old—entirely alert and merry. At tho same time a load fell from his mind, a load which he had been vaguely trying to attribute to tho lateness of the hour, tho strangeness of his surroundings—anything but the manner In which tho girl had first greeted him. As sho took his arm and hurried him out of the library ho felt so fully himself that he forgot even that ho was not attired liko the gentlo- men orouud him. Mr. Marge, who had risen when Lucia entered the library, followed tho couple with his eyes; then, when alone, he frowned slightly, bit his lip, dropped the end of his cigarette, paced to and fro several times, leaned on the mantel, and muttered: "'Phill'" Then ha lighted another cigarette, and veiled his face in smoke for several minutes. his olde her tri.-n.i5. of tini--^ i fnnlfy. •> IK. h;,.l < •('•:'•;-" mvl I" hud off'T^d to pho looked a-> that PIISV chair in th bis mother inijht have stant; then h« wra glad furget how him fmm library!

"But ho was so country—so dreadful common," protested Mrs. Tramlay. with her customary helpless air. "Nonsense!" r.aid her husband. "There was nothing country or common about his face and manners. There hasn't been BO bright eyed, manly, looking a fellow to our house before since 1 don't know when. Eh, Luifiar „ "Agnes Dinon said be was real fino looking," tho girl answered. . 'Agnes Dinon Is thirty-six If she's a day," answered Mrs. Tramlay, in a petulant tone. "So much the bettor flcted to pass opinions on young men," ttiid Tramlay. "Shows more sense in ono girl of her ago than a hundred liko—like"—-' "Liko me, papa." K»!d Uirln, "You may ai well say it." "Like you, then.

"Wrong again, mamma, sho^a Invited him tor next Tuesday nigh't, and I do boliove she levisod tho reception just for tho purpose. Hone of us had heard of It before." Mrs. Tramlay gathered all her strength, itimulatod it with aa entire cup of tea, and exclaimed: \ „ _ . : "Well, I should like to know What society Is coming to, if a common farmer's boy, of no family, can stumble Into town and bo invited about to good houses." "Coming to( Why, my dear wife, it Is coming to its souses. I'm glad, In thfa particular case, the movement began at our house." "Nobody would havo paid auy attention to him, if you hadn't talked so much about him," said Mrs. Tramlay. "Ono would havo thought him a dear old friend, to hear you go on about him as you did." "I said nothing but what was trua 1 merely said he was ono of the finest young men I had over known, that hu was of the highest character, and very intelligent besides." "Such qualities don't make a mail fit for society," said tlie lady of tho house. "No, 1 suppose not; if they did we'd see more of them at our receptions and parties." "Eilgarl" "Well, well," said Tronilay, leaving tho table, kissing his wife, and preparing to hurry to his ofllce, "it isn't your fault; ws can't axpect what can't bo had, 1 suppose."' "Lucia," said Mrs. Tramlay, after the children hod been dispatched to school, "I hope your father's peculiar notions won't alfcct you." "About Phill Nousouso, you dear old worryl But really, mother, ha made quito anlmpression. A lot of tho girls admired him ever so much.

Kviilently Lucia's mother approved of it, nnd was not sha a member of a chnroh — not, ho regretted. of tho faith in which all Hnynton worshiped, yet still a church t And did not many of Lucia's guests dress in similar style! He mentally laid tho subject away for future consideration, and gave his mind to his own attire. Until that evening his faith In tho perfection of h.is Sunday unit vcas as unquestioning ns his faith in Haynton '3 preacher, but now it was hopelessly shattered. Ho did not admin.' tho attire of tho gentlemen ho had met, but tho evidence was overwhelming that it was tho correct thing, and that ho must prepare himself to dress In like fashion If ho went to Miss Dlnon'B party. And, by tho way, what a queenly woman that Miss Dinon was! He would liko to meet her.again; he cer- temly must attend that party._ But if he bought evening dress, what should ho do with it when ho left tho city) No young man felt more freedom than he to do as ho liked in Haynton, but to appear In a "swat low tail" at church or anywhere else In the village would be Bltiiply impossiblo; the mere thought of it made him tremble and then laugh. A suit of clothes merely to wear two or three evenings— perhaps only ono— would bo a shocking extravagance; they probably would cost half as much nsa now horse, or two or three dozen of tho books ho had, for years been longing to buy Ho' would give up Miss Dinou's party; the thought of doing so made him doleful, but do It ho must. Almost immediately after forming this virtuous resolution he boarded a horse car, on which were several couples, evidently returning from a party somewhere, so ngaln Phil found himself studying nttiro. Gradually it occurred to him that his own appear- onco was attracting attention. This was not a new experience; ho hud encountered it several times at Haynton with calmness; Indeed, although he w;i_s not vnin", ho had never feared comparison, In church, of his appear ance with that of any uummor boarder from tho city; for, as bis mother has already Intimated In these pages, his Bunduy coat had been cut from tho same pieco of cloth as tho minister's. But now he felt ill at caso while being eyed, not at all Impertinently, by the young people who snt fai-inj; him. First he thought the mildly rritiral glances were directed lu his hard rubber watch guard; t .\,,,,, I.., , ....._. V.:.:-, I.., 7..j,-,,r |,l.. v ,...., ...nr.

Thirdly, he was obliged to believe that an admirably dressed fellow opposite entirely disapproved of his Sunday coat — tho coat cut from minister's cloth and made by Sarah . Tweego, and with a real silk velvet collar, tool Little by littlo Phil lost his self possession; ho could scarcely look In any direction without encountering tho eyes of some ono who Boomed to regard him as a curiosity. An attempt to ignore tho attention by reading tho advertising signs above tho windows of tho car was a dismal failure, for ho somehow felt that several pairs of eyes were upon bun, and this was rather more annoying than seeing th«m. Tho strain became unendurable; so he suddenly looked through n window, as if to BOO whero he was, then hastily went to tho rear platform and asked tho conductor to lot him off. As ho stood Micro ho heard a young man whisper: "Country !" Thou ho heard a young woman softly ejaculate: "Te-hel" . . Tho street was as dark as gas lighted streets usually are; It was almost deserted, and tho autumn evening was quite chilly, but Phil felt as if his blazing eyes were illuminating everything— as if tho walls had eyes to looR disapprovingly nt Haynton fashions, or as if his own blood wore hot enough to worm tho entire atmosphere of New York. He knew what he would do; when ho reached Sol Man- trlng's sloop ho would remain aboard until she soiled; then he would go back'to Hayn-. ton aud remain there forovor. Ho could exist without Now York, if New York found him unsatisfactory. He didn't caro over to, •ee again anybody in Now York, excopt, perhaps, Lucia, As for her, hadn't oven sho Before the next cor arrived, Phil had entirely changed his mind. Nevertheless, bo- fore continuing his journey he cautiously peered In to see If any of the passengers were likely to prove critical There seemed to be no ono to fear; at 0110 end of tho car was a shabby looking peddler with his pack, evidently arrived by a late train from tho suburbs; at tho other an old man seemed Inclined to dose, and directly opposite tho newest passenger safe a~ plain, "modest "looking person, whom a Nevfr Yorker would have rightly Identified as a waiter at a restaurant or cafe. Apparently throe persons less qualilled or inclined to criticise personal appearance' could not have been found by careful search; yet within flvo minutes Phil was sure that all of them had noticed him and studied him. As be was disinclined to squander another car fare on his feelings, ho sought tho dusky seclusion of tbe rear platform and engaged tho conductor in conversation, which on Phil's port consisted solely of questions; yet ho was astonished, as woll 03 indignant, when the conductor remarked, at a moment when the talk showed signs of lagging: "You*ro from the rural district, 1 s'posor" "What makes you say that!" asked Phil, Indicating a sonso of Injury. "Oh, I didn't mean nothing out of the way," said the conductor. "1 only kinder thought I was sure — why, I como from tho country myself;' yes sir, an' I ain't ashamed of it, neither." Tho explanation was not etttisf actory ; so Phil completed the trip In gloomy silence, and he felt a sense ot great relief when ho reached Bol Mantring's sloop and made his way into the little cabin, where, of the three men lying at ease, no one took tho pains to intimate that Phil was anything but city bora aud city bred. .
