Mr. Dttrnn's house In Borkcley square Is presided over by Ms mint— n little, thin, wiry, kindly old Indy, with corkscrew ringlets nnrt a litgh penky noso. Her acquaintances nrc as old-fashioned as her curia, but It In nnmzlng how inniij she has of thorn. They are at the staid, eminently respectable ordor, nil nblo to count their gcncraUons,niid all "carriage people." Yet ft might be admitted that sometimes Miss Duran pines for the young nud frivolous, and would be glad to welcome thorn hisido her nephew's doors —her doors, as they might be called, so little docs he interfere with her nrrniigc incuts, and BO seldom does he show Ulna' self between 12 a. m. and 11 p. m. On this particular . Wednesday quite » stir and bustle of the thick silken skirts take place, as Gernlcl Mossnreeno, smll- lug aud'gny, enters Miss Duron's draw? Ing room, There is, in spite of the deb onalr manner that distinguishes him, and induces all these old young men t< look nskivnce at htm, and grow green with envy, and that causes the quite old men to wink and nudge each other, anri call him "a sad dog"— a suspicion of nnx icty thftt renders his kind eyes melancholy, and makes him a favorite nt once with all the gentle, elderly women. Ho is a fashionable looking young man, exquisitely dressed, and Is, In fact, such a departure from JfJss Duran'a drawing room, that ho creates an immense sensation, that is only to be sur passed by the entrance of n lovely young woman ten minutes afterward, who sweeps up to Miss Duran with the most charming smilo in the world on her beautiful face. "Dear Miss Duran," she says, slipping hor little gray chid hand into that of'the astonished spinster, "wo have been wanting to come and see you for such a time —auntie nnd I—but there have been so many other tiresome engagements. And, after all. it is better, is it not, to leave the best to the last!"'.this with a swift glance at Massareene that sets his heart a-be«ting. "Even now, .we could not come together; there was some absurd crush somewhere, and wo had promised to go, so I told nuntle I wanted to see you even more than she did; so I packed her off to her afternoon and I came to mine." Her low trninaute voice, her pretty smile, the gentle pressure of the little hand, all won Miss Durau's heart at once. She had met MiUicent two or tiireo times, but now she persuades herself that they have been good friends for many years. What a lovely, oreaturel How nice of her to come to this dull old house just to see a stupid old inaidl Dear, dear me, there were not many who would do that! Meantime the "lovely creature" is taking her tea from Gerald Massareene's hands. Tea of an exquisite flavor and rich with country cream, sent up specially from the hcnrt of Hampshire for Miss Dnran's Wednesdays. Tea served in priceless old Crown Derby, before which the modern imitations might hold down their heads. "Sugar?" asks Gerald in a society tone; and then, considerably lower, "my own darlingl" "Eh?" says Miss Grey in return to this impassioned address, with a startling promptitude that is rather dispiriting. In truth, having got here, no matter how, and so acknowledged to Massareene that she has thought it worth her .while to give up for his sake one of tha most brilliunt concerns of the season, she is a little frightened, a little impatient arid yet a good deal glad.. "Millicent," says Gerald, dropping ,iiito tho chair near her, "that you have come at all is so much more than I dared hope for that I would now entreat you to let my joy continue by being kind to me for tho short hour we may bo together." His tone ia very sad, in spite of the joy he mentions. Old Miss Duran, looking kindly at the two young people who have descended into hor midst and cast such a oloud of sunshine upon the dull, stately drawing room, reads as clearly as though it were all In print before her that this young man—the son of her dead cousin—is breaking bis heart for love o£ tho pretty, slender girl staring so solemnly into her tea cup, and that the pretty girl is not altogether indifferent about tt. "Bless inol And I hear she I* to bo married to that nephew of Lucy Brand's. Woll, to judge by her face, t should say her heart is not in it. Poor young things I Evidently they have entered into the blissful realms of love. Cupid's darts have found a lodging in their tender breasts!" Sometimes Miss Duran, in spite of tho ringlets, indulged in flights of poetic fauoy, "How romantic! How full of pathos I That dear boy!—why, I can see him dwindling away before my eyes. Quite 5 wreck ho is becoming, though art and hi» tailor may try to delude mo. Well, I must see what can bo done. Gerald, my dear, do you think Miss Grey would liko to see that painting of your great-grandfather that adorns tho west wall of tho library? It Is well worth a visit, I assure you, my dear Miss Grey. Do let Gerald persuade you to look at it. A masterpiece, I assure you. One of Lely's brightest efforts!" "Come!" soys Oternld, lu a low entreating tone. Millicent hesitates for a moment, and then, according to custom, is lost. She rises, gives her cup to him to lay upon a table near, and with a bright smile and glance directed to her hostess follows him out of tho room. Although bin spirits have risen almost beyond his control, Mr. Massnreono bo- liaves himself wonderfully until tho hall ia crossed and the library gained. Then, rpRrat to say, ho considerably forgets himself. Ho throws honor to the winds, And taking Grnult ttoylp's flaneoe iu his arms, strains bar to his heart. "Darling of my heart!" whlspets he, wilh « sigh at passionate glnducsa. At Misa Grey 'a conduct on this occasion [ am also bound to express regret. Instead of the indignation she should have- shown, she Hliuply pushes him away from hor with a very lenient hand, aud laughs a little. "Was them over such a had boy!" says she, standing hack from him with palm JXtomlcd to keep him oil. "Are you to'•My without gracoj" "On tho contrary, I am filled with itl I have gained—you." "Galnedf" "MlUk-vtit, will you tell me now that I urn nothing to your" "Ci-rtoluiy not; you arg tUmtrg, <u* I . hope, my Very good friend!" "t urn not. I urn your lover, or nolh- ingi" "It is not good for R womnn (olmve two lovers." "Cnll Boyle n lover? Pshnwi" says Mr. MaFsareeiio with fine contempt. "Compare him with mo, and where are yout" "Why hero?" snys she, laughing. 'And then all nt OVP.O her gaycty comes to ah end, nnd her face clonds. "Alns!" erica she, "what is to be the end of It all?" "St. George's, Hanover square," returns lie, with umllmlnlshed courage. "Yes; with Grnnit as bridegroom." "With me, you mean. Sweetheart, why can you uot break all these chains that bind yon, and give yourself as your heart directs?" Miss Grey has subsided Into tears, and a big chair. "If I only clnre," sobs sho from behind her handkerchief. At this half admission Mr. Massor eeno's hope rises fortyfold. "If you dared—what then?" he nslcs kneeling beside her and possessing him self of one (Initity hand. "I might—learn—what happiness really mentis." "With mo, you mean?" "Oh, Gerald!" whispers she; and thet it is nil over, niul sho is caught to ii breast, and for ;i little while tho world li forgotten by both. JJeiiiK the woman, sho is tho first to awake from Jho happy dream. "It is imulno.s.s!" she says lifting he head nnd gazing at him with tearful eyes "Not if you will trust to me. Not I yon are sure of that you honestly lovi mo. Speak (o nio, Millicentl Why do you turn your head away? You do love me?" At this Bho lets her gaze return to his. "I wish 1 had never seen you," she says with trembling lips. "That Is a hard speech, my darlingl "It is true, though. If I had never seen you, I might have been willing to conclude this contract with Grnnit. If had never seen you, I could neve have" "Goon." "Loved you!" She bows her head upon her hands am bursts into fresh tears. Mr. JTmwtireoim draws hor head down upon his shoulder. "Don't cry like that, Millicent," says he. "It will all cotne right in the end Something tells me so." Something tells him quite tho reverse; but bo would no bo tho true lover he is it ho could no! strain a point to please his beloved. "What we have got to do now is to think what is the first, best step to be taken." "The first, best step will mean ruin." There is a touch of impatience in her tone. Although she loves him, it is hard lor her to give up the gilded loaves and fishes of fashionable life. "It will not," retorts he stoutly; "it will mean emancipation—if you have the pluck to go through with it." "Oh! emancipation!" says she disdainfully, though she is glad of his resoluteness. "All yon Irishmen are mad about freedom I One would think yon were a land leaguer the way you speak! 1 wonder yon are not afraid to love one of thte hated Sassenachs." "I am not afraid of anything-except your strength of mind. You are mine now, but will you be mine an hour hence?" "If I were a man," says Miss Grey reflectively, "I should not choose to fall in love with a woman upon whom I could place no dependence." "If I were a woman," responds he promptly, "I should know better thau to marry one man when I loved another." "Well, but you are not a woman," says she triumphantly. "Neither are you a man," replies he. "That squares our accounts. Sweetheart," regarding her very gravely, "tell me at least that you will think seriously of my proposal." "I am always thinking of. it," returns she, sighing. "Oh! why are not you Granit." 'The gods forbid!" says he piously. "I am a better man as I stand, though no doubt a poorer one. Well, however the wind blows, I am a happier fellow to-day than I ever expecetd to be. I have hoard from your own lips that you love me." "Do not place too much confidence in. that." 'You will not deny the truth of it, however?" "No. It is true. You are more to me, Gerald, than any man I over have met—than any man I ever shall meet." Her eyes grow large and dim with tears. Sho holds out her hand to him. "Strengthened by such an assurance, I will believe in nothing less than victory," replies he, in a cloar, resonant voice, his face bright with a hope that at this moment has grown into a certainty. Millicent, watching him, feols her heart grow sod. "Will not the weight of circumstances, of custom, prove too strong for him? "I must go home," she Bays, starting a little. "Good'by then for the present, daring." whispers ho proudly. He draws her a him nnd looks down anxiously into lor face. A question seems hovering on ils lips. At last ho gives it words. 'Do—do you ever kiss him?" asks he in a jerky, vehement way that speaks of suppressed agony. "Nevorl" returns she almost as vehemently. She flushes, crimson. Massareeno's arms tighten round her, and an expression of unspeakablo relief alters his face. -"I cannot tell you how often I have bought of that, how it has preyed upon me," ho exclaims eagerly. "And after all, the torment I endured had no foun- lation." He looks tenderly down upon ler. "My love, you seem more mine now than ever!" Then his tone changes, md nn accent of scorn unmitigated runs through it. Evidently his thoughts ore wondering to some one absent. "What sort of a fellow was ho at all?" says he, with a curl of Ms lipg. A faint smile breaks through the sadness of Mlllicont's face. 'Would you huvo had him different hen?" sho asks, with a slight return of icr usual gnyety. 'Different! Do you know," says he iresontly, "that I don't think I dislike ilni DOW half as much as 1 did five minutes ago?" Then pressing his chock to hers, ami speaking In a much lower tono, and rather shyly, "Mlllicout, will you be kinder to mo than you aro to him?" "Have I not been kinder?" auks she faintly. ' " But kinder—kinder still?" She lifts hor faco to his!

It is the duty of every person who has used Bosobee's German Syrup to let its wonderful qualities be known to their friends in curing Consumption, severe Coughs, Croup, Asthma, Pneumonia, and in fact all throat and lung diseases. No person can use it without immediate relief. Three doses will relieve any case, and wo consider it the duty of all druggists to recommend it to the poor, dying consumptive, at least to try one bottle, as 80,000 dozen bottles were sold last year, and no one case where it failed was reported.
