To be sure there was no shame in his face, and this miffhtbe taken as slightly unbecoming onliis part; but that he could look downcast was quickly proved, when, on venturing to offer Madcap his hand, she overlooked it in a courtesy, and walked iiWiiy- -^ vei1 the Duke, but lately so implacable against him, felt for his dis- coinllture, and before ho had been in Frank's company live minutes, succumbed to the fascination this young fellow seemed to exercise impartially over every man and woman with whom ha came in contact, always excepting the one woman, who had jilted him for his friend. At dinner, all save Madcap (who thought of Hester) wen>. the brighter for his coming; his youth, his gayety, thfl delightful tone of "his voice in which spoke the noble heart that looked out of his blue eyes, his very unconsciousness of his power to charm, warmed the Duke's heart to him more and more as the evening passed. Liter, in the drawing-room, Madcap found herself subjected to an 'annoyance that she found intolerable. Mr. Eyre was in conversation with the Duchess; Lady Sophia had crossed over to the Duke to propose to him one of those endless family problems that no one has ever been known to solve s itist'uctorily; and Frank, with a determination that for the moment bereft him of the color Madcap found so unbecoming, dared to approach the window behind whose curtain she stood half hidden. Was her head drooping rather sacllyV Frank thought so, till feeling some one near, she looked up, and then she seemed nearly as tall as herself, and as capable of brushing him from her path as a 'fly, and indeed had passed, him when he said— "Doily says -- " Madcap stopped, trembling, and her hand stole up to the little mole on her neck. "Have you seen him to-day?" she cried quickly. "He sent you his dear love, and — other things," said Frank, stopping short; "and this," he added, taking carefully out of his breast-pocket a little packet that had so clearly been tied up ny Dody and Donne's fingers, that without a word, Madcap pounced on it, and ran out of the room, without a thought for any thins on earth but what was inside that precious paper. The Duchess, who hud been near enough to see the whole tiling, glanced at Mr. Eyre, and remarked— "So much coldness, so much heat, and then a mysterious packet! Are you not jealous?"" Mr. Eyre's reply less concerned Madcap tlia'n the woman who addressed him; hut even his determination scarcely enabled him to sustain with spirit mo part he had marked out for himself, and on which Frank's success depended. And meanwhile, Madcap had fallen sound asleep with tears on her cheeks, and a half-withered bunch of dog-roses and sweet-brier in her hand.

I told him that you were coining back soon, and he began at once to pick a nosegay to put on your table. lie thought soon must mean to-morrow." "I have never been away from him in sill his life before," said Madcap, the slow tears gathering in her eyas, "and "Don't cry," implored Frank, distractedly; "it will make you ill—and what will Mr. Eyre sayV" "Mr. Eyre will say nothing," she said, balancing herself on her pattens Avith suddenly recovered dignity, "he is with the Duclles-s. Did it ever strike you," she added, as the impulses of her youth toward Frank recurred, "that Mr. Eyre knew any thin 3 about Jlirliwjlt" Frank, considering Madcap, thought that she must have had some knowledge of the art to keep Mr. Eyre for six years tied to her apron-string, but said, ''She is his hostess—he cannot be rude to her." "A pretty pair," said a low but audible voice in the doorway behind them. tVt the sound of it Madcap's mood changed; without turninor, she said: "Would you like some curds and whey, Faanki"' and gravely filled the Avooden noil and held it out to him. ••Quite an idyl!" said the Duchess, entering just as'Frank, fed by Madcap, swallowed a liberal mouthful, but could not even be made to look ridiculous by the absurdity of the situation. "Quite," said Madcap indifferently; "would vou like some more?" she added, looking at the young man with a smile. ••To be sure," said Frank, Avho hated curds and Avhey, but would have eaten any abomination she might please to olfer him. Madcap," said Mr. Eyre's stern voice at a distance, "you will fall off your pattens—what madness!" "Frank is looking after me," said Madcap, waving her empty spoon airily; "go and look after the Duchess. Don't let her wear pattens; she's too tall and too—plump," she added, looking at her hostess gravely from head to foot; "but I think you may take oil mine now, Frank;" and Mr. Eyre's last pi imps of his wife as he turned away, was with Frank kneeling before her, carefully unfastening their straps. "You are jealous," said the Duchess to Mr. Eyre, as he walked beside her over the velvet turf to the house. •'Not I;but I was thinking' 1 —he paused and looked at her with a glance beneath Avhieh she trembled—"what a pitv you and I did not marry after all, and leave that young pair yonder to be as happy as two children together; and perhaps now you understand better why she is called Madcap." CHAPTER VI. To act is so easy, to lliinlc is so liarii. When Mr. Eyre had told his AA'ife that he must propitiate the Duchess for Frank's sake, and Madcap had shrunk from this first glimpse of the unscrupulousnass of his character, he had not taken into account the danger of playing at pitch-and-toss Avith a human heart, and before Ions found himself committed to very different issues to those he had intended. A child miy kindle a groat lire, but fifty grown men cannot stay it; and before Mr. Byre had been at the White,.LocUre three days e knew that even for Frank's sake he oushtnoV to" have gone there. . The smallness of tho party, the isolation of a great house at a time of year when all associates of the master and mistress in the county were absent, while unprivileged visitors found themselves ri'-'idly excluded, conspired to throw the young couple and the older one so constantly toother that guiJu- allv Madcap's shyness with J.'iank ceased and she could talk to him almost as tunilly asinthed.ys when they were boy and girl together. But to Frank who could not be expected to know Mr Ere's character as we as SSfSSse out to see mm depart, saia, very trniy. that she would have liked to go with him on a pillion, so that all the way he seemed to feel her two little bands clasped below his heart, and her bright head leaning in safety against his shoulder. She knew that the business on which he had excused himself to the Duchess was to visit a certain nursery, and deliver and receive important messages; and it was to receive these latter that she was very early dressed for dinner, and watching from the billiard-room window for his return, ready to run out the moment she heard his horse's steps. But it happened that his arrival was simultaneous with that of a new guest —a gossip of the highest quality—who saw the greeting between tnetwoyouiig people, and, supposing them husband and wife, thought such warmth vastly ill-bred. She had better hopes of them later, eapecially when she discovered the young man to be that identical '•nettle for nice noses" whose wrongdoings just now furnished tha last new dish of scandal for the county. She thought he must be either a fool of extraordinary simplicity, or a man of brilliant courage, to select the wife of an Eyre as his next fancy; and at dinner became so fascinated in her study of the pair, that the attitude of matters between Mr. Eyre and the Duchess for the time absolutely escaped her attention. "My dear Duchess." she said, in the drawing-room later, "I wonder you permit such open love-making between Lord Lovol and Mrs. Eyre." "Oh. they are old friends," said the Duchess, "and sweethearts," she added a little bitterly, for she was beginning to suspect Madeap's charms of being more binding on Mr. Eyre than her own. They met like lovers," said Mrs. Transonic, shrugging her shoulders; "ami she has g_oiie into the garden. SJB if he does not join her." The Duchess's heart beat as she thought that if these two young people were abroad there would be an excuse for herself and Mr. Eyre to follow them; and Mrs. Transome, taking the place of Lady Sophia (who had lelt that day), could play backgammon with the Duke. And, indeed, when Frank appeared, he only gave one hasty look round, and disappeared through the open window into the soft darkness beyond. In the garden nothing was visible, when his eyes grew accustomed to the .(doom, save some pale cuckoo-colored masses of bloom, that drew him nearer by their penetrating sweetness, and over which for one brief moment he bent, not knowing them for the stocks, that by day in their pinched, starveling iingii- ness, had offended the eye of the gaz.M;. When Frank had almost given up nis search, the whitenessof her neck s iow- ed her to him, as she sto,>d b<.;side a bush of the large evening primrose— that curious llower which resists the sun's magic, closing itself (irmly at his approach, but opening out her sweetness to the evening dews with a sudden leap, a quiver that well may startle the bee-moth that has asleep in her breast. "Hush!" said Madcap, feeling, rather than knowing, that Frank stood beside her; "if vou speak lou 1 they will not unfold. 1 have been watching them, and thinking of K?ats's lines." They stood fer a while without speaking by the opening flowers that ssenrsd to bring with them their own li flit, while the night wind blew to them, now and again, a little intense whiff from tiie distant stocks; then she said— "Do they miss me? Were they in the nursery, or picking a nosegay, thinking I should come bacli to-nvuTow?" "I found them in tiie copse," he sai 1, with a little p.uise before he sp >kr, "they were quite happy. But when they saw me they ran up, clamoring to know if you had come back." "And what did j'ou say?" said Madcap, stooping overa cluster of stars fast fading in their masses of heavy foliiicre. "That you would not be long now; but that did not-satisfy Dody—he clung round her neck and asked if soon meant to-day?" "Bound whose neck?" said M idcap, •jealously; "ho never cared for Joieph- Jj le !'l * 4 It was nnt Josephine," said Frank, his voice sounding as •though he W.TI moving away and had left derail auvi •. For the garden was almost in darkness now—the night had taken its revenge and extinguished those colors that flamed most vividly by day—scar- lets, blues, and pinks were now but black shadows, and only the ghosts of the evening primrosss stave a vague suspicion of their presence. "Was it—was it ifo/fir?" said Madcap in a whisper, that barely expected a response. "l r e<," replied a voice but a little way oil; "her heart is bound up in him —she lives but in his life, and she watches over him in your absence as only you could do—but she does not usurp your plane." For awhile there was silence, and his whole soul yearned to her, knowing tliat she was weeping; then she said— "There are things that even God does not middle with: like the growing seed, or hindering a human soul to beconu good in its own way; an I she is good." Tier hand stole out to his in the darkness, and so in mute accord they moved toward th8 light, consecrated to each other, he by his sacrifice for her, she by her old love for him, and new passionate desii'd for his repentance. "They have the faces of angels," said Mrs. Transome in a low voice to the Duke, as the two entered; "but even angels may trip and fall sometimes, and noDody ought to know that batter than —Satan." She no.lded toward Mr. Eyre as she spoke, who looked singularly old and haggard in contrast with the two beautiful young people; and as if her thought had reached him, Mr. Eyre suddenly looked at himself in a mirror opposite, then at the two—and a curious idea took posession of his mind. CIIAPTJ3K YII. Such u ffottinjr up stairs was nevor soon. That evening was tha last in which Mr. Eyre and the Duchess, his wife and Frank, were virtually alone; for within three days the house was filled with those persons that Mr. Eyre had prompted the Dutchess to invite, flivored by a sprinkling of brighter wits from town— these latter expressly born(as the county magnates supposed) to teach solid men tiie inestimable value of their own slow understandings. There was scarcely a man there who had not known and loved Frank's father, and gradually he made his way with each; for the wives' judgments were always in his favor, and ou all sides the ver'dict that he had been more unfortunate than sinning was returned. And inJ'iod, to the women, Frank was the central ft we of tha house, as Madcap, unconsciously to herself, was to the men, pro.ludn.? au unexpected eltect oi( their minds, and almost in* them to the belief that as humau tir.; n:vi(tf?n uuo t;uve cias-SJ-i men, women, and llerveys— so tlierj mi nit be a fourth class, of which Ma l- cau was a representative. Siie had no taste for flirtation— perhaps she was a total abstainer from birth, having loved but once, and mv.'. only, and so escaped any dregs of the poison that might be lingering in \}--r system; and when certain county L-iv.^laces, presuming on Mr. EJvre'a undisguised flirtation with the Duchess, offered their thinly veiled admiration, something that was neither woman nor child (lashed out of her eyes and checked them. For men are but what women make them, as in their turn they imprint their features, whether base or nobK j , on what they deal with, and the mere recognition of a pure wo;uan will shed an influence in ever-widening circlo* upon the souls of men who have painfully taught themselves that no snob creatures exists. I'.ut the wives, who quickly fathomed Frank's attitude toward her, said that it was easy for a woman secretly so adored, to decline ordinary Ilirtatfons; there was a general conviction too that Mr. Eyro was amusing tbe Duchess rather than himse f, being too finished a man of the world to display in public his profound affection of his wife. And meanwhile Madcap tired of it all, and longed for a sight of her children, of whom she had not received so much as a message for two whole days. Frank's position was now established, and why would not Mr. Eyre take her away? She did not know that each hour, however little spent to his liking, was a breathing space to him before the struggle that must commence on his return to Lovel;lhat hero lie felt himself independent as his fellow men, there ho was a slave fast chained and bound by the weight of those sins from which it was beyond the power of either God or man to loose THE FARM AND FARM NOTES.

Why should we be astonished at the Rowing I'nsture September is a good time for 4 sowlnjf permanent pasture land, the exact date depending upon the condtidon of the land and the state of the weather:, To sow upon good land, a rain coming soon after the sowing hastens germination and quickens the growth. Of varieties we wilt name the June grass or Kentucky blue grass, ns very early food, ns is also sweet vernal grass and the Kliode Island bent grass. Forlatef sorts tho wliito clover should not be emitted, or the orchard grass, and meadow fescue and meadow foxtail should also go In, along with red top, and if the land is moist the fowl meadow grass, timothy and rough* stalked meadow grass. Almost any seedsman can give tho proportions 111 which they should be .mixed, which must vary according to tho number of kinds of these seeds Hint can be found, as many seedsmen do not have them all, and the character of the land may make it desirable to drop some of them, and to substitute others, as using oat grass or rye grass and tho crested dog tall grass upon very dry soils, 01 where sheep are to be pastured, ill- stead of some of those named abovs for moist soils. Wo have not named tho rod or crimson clover, because w» should prefer to sow the seed of that in the spring very early, and allow flic melting snow oi' r spring rains to carry It down among the roots of the other, and because if fall sown, cattlo, when they get to it, are apt to pull it up instead of biting it off, or gnaw it so closely that it winter-kills. Auc\ by tho way, if cattle cannot be kept off of it this fall it may be au advantage to suw a little rye or a mixture oJ oats and barley for them to feed upon this fall, which will protect the grass, help as a mulch during the winter and by their roots keep the cattle from poaching np the ground to some extent.
