The mere mention of a lord was sufficient to send the nurse off to the door in a bustle; perhaps the good woman scented a tip in the near future. Anyway, when the door was opened to the great man, he was astonished to see a stout, comfortable-looking body standing, smiling and curtseying within. "Yes, my lord; walk this way, my lord," and forthwith she ushered him into the dressing-room to relieve Esther of the baby. "A very fine-looking old gentleman, Miss," she remarked. "Is he?" said Esther. "No, I've never seen him." but for her." Meantime Lord Aylmer, suspecting nothing of what had happened, was standing at the window, watching his horses, his keen and wicked old eyes having noticed during the few moments that he had been in the room that Dick's portrait had gone. He heard the sound of the door opening, and turned to meet, not Dorothy, in her flowing blue draperies, with her sweet, shy gray eyes uplifted to his, but a tall, dark-eyed young woman in a plain gray gown, who camo forward and held out her hand in what was unmistakably the fashion of a woman who considered herself his social equal. "Good morning, Lord Aylmer," she said, cordially. "1 must thank you very much for all your kindness to my little cousin, who is very lonely just now. My name is Brand—Esther Brand." Lord Aylmer could not help starting a little, but he covered it by a profound bow and a protestation that he was delighted—enchanted, in fact—to have the honor of making Miss Brand's acquaintance. So this was the Esther of whom she had spoken in her letter—Esther Brand; ay, and likely to prove a brand between him and her. He looked with .disgust, and a thousand bad words jostled one another iu his heart the while, at Esther's pale, resolute face, her firm, white, capable hands, noted her fearless manner, and admitted that she was unmistakably a woman of education and good breeding. And it is only fair to say that Lord Aylmer positively cursed his ill-luck even while he kept a smooth and smiling front to the enemy. "And shall I not have the pleasure of seeing Mrs.—er—Harris this morning?" he asked, finding presently that there was no sign of Dorothy's appearance. Miss Brand laughed. "Well, hardly," she answered. "My cousin is as well as could possibly be expected under the circumstances." "What circumstances?" Lord Aylmer asked, thinking that Miss Brand was alluding to Barbara's accident. "The circumstances of a baby," said Esther, smiling. "Of what? Forgive me, but I do not follow you," he said. "My cousin has got a baby, Lord Ayl- iner," said Esther, smiling still more broadly. Lord Aylmer jumped to his feet. Esther, not a littled startled, sprang to hers. "What?" he cried. "Mrs. Harris had a little son born at could possibly wish," Esther answered. "And not too much upset by the accident to the poor old lady yesterday, I hope?" he Inquired, tenderly. "Oh! no. Of course, she was upset at the time, hut she was wonderfully calm and quiet after I got here." "And my valet's wife—Amelia Harris—how does she like her?" he asked. "Well, really, Lord Aylmer, she hardly knows. Amelia came in, and I had to send her off for the doctor almost before my cousin saw her. Btit I like her and find her very useful; in fact, we should be but very badly off "That is good," Lord Aylmer said, with his most fatherly manner. He felt, this wicked and wily old man, that ho would have to be continually on his guard with this steady- eyed young lady. By her advent the difficulties of the situation would be greatly increased; if he succeeded now in ousting Dick and getting hold of Dorothy, it would be in spite of Miss Esther Brand. Yet the difficulties of the situation only made him the more anxious to come off victor in the end, only made him more determined to win Dorothy if possible, whether it were by hook or crook. CHAPTER XXIX. E rose to go then, and held out his . hand to his enemy. "I am not only glad, but greatly relieved, that Amelia Harris is able to make herself useful, because I feel that I am in a measure responsible for the accident, to your cousin's own servant. I shall be quite anxious to hear how she goes on—your cousin, I mean. I wonder if you would send me a line now and 'again to Aylmer's Field, near Norwich? I should be so much obliged." "Oh, certainly 1 will let you know; it is very good of you to he so interested," Esther answered. "Ah! that is good of you. I am an old man now, and it is the distressing habit of old people to worry themselves about everything. I shall worry more or less about your cousin until I know she is about again." "Oh, you mustn't do that," said Esther, laughing. "Then you are going out of town?" "Yes, 1 am going to Aylmer's Field for a few days," he replied. "By-the- bye, I shall be charmed to place my carriage at your disposal during my absence—for as long as you like afterward, for the matter of that," he added. "That is really very kind of you," said Esther, "but—it seems rather taking an advantage of you." "Not at all—not the least in the world," put in.the old lord, quickly. "1. will tell them to send round every morning for orders." He went hastily away after this, "Yea, m' lord." Being September, the old lord found his favorite club almost deserted—not that he minded; in fact, he wanted the club to himself, and practically he had it. He did not waste time, but read the telegram at once. "Boy—both well," with a sneer, and tore it into a thousand fragments, which he flung into the grate. Then lie opened the letter, in Dick's well-known writing, bearing the Madras postmark. It was a long and tender letter, full of solicitude for her welfare and giving her amusing description of his evcry-day life. "Madras isn't much of a place, my darling," Dick said, "but I shall like it well enough when you are out here." "Good God!" Lord Aylmer cried aloud, "then she means going out to him. So that's your game, is it, my little white cat? Ah! we must see if we can't make a change in that program." As he sat there muttering over the letter an old gentleman, who was peacefully slumbering over the Morning Post, started violently and begun to make profuse apologies. "Beg your pardon, I'm sure—afraid I was nodding over the paper—ten thousand pardons, and—why, it's Aylmer! Bless my soul, Aylmer, are you in town? How do you do?" "Yes, I am in town—I'm quite well, thank you, and I don't want the paper because I'm reading letters of great importance." said Lord Aylmer, rudely and pointedly, and with an utter absence of the delightful fatherly manner which he found so effectual at times. "Oh! really. Deuced unpleasant letters, too, 1 should think," said the old gentleman, who was a much more important personage than Lord Aylmer, and did not care a snap of his linger for him. He got up from the chair where he had been sitting, and waddled off to a somewhat easier one in the big how- window, where he sat down, and began diligently studying the paper, only presently to go fast asleep again with , . _. ,1 „<!...» fl, r *-.! it uito/1 i n lli« H V1T1K- ALL OVER THE WORLD WAR DEPARTMENT INQUIRY.

Girl ynlti tVlien Mistress Object* to it- the paper defiantly clasped in his arms. Lord Aylrner went on studying Dick's letter, feeling better for the small passage of words, much as one often feels when a thunderstorm has cleared the atmosphere on a hot summer's day. "All the same," (.he loiter continued. "I have got most comfortable quarters here, and I have seen a jolly little house about a mile from the town where I think you will be as happy as possible. I am looking out for a first-rate ayah for you, but really it. will be the easiest if you get an ayah for the child in town—there are always some who have, taken children over and want, their return passage. You see, my darling. 1 have not been idle about you, nor forgotten to make the best of my opportunities in gathering information which may make you more comfortable, though 1 think- sometimes that people must wonder why I want to know about ayahs and nurses. (To be Continued.) "WHAT?" HE CRIED. four o'clock this morning," said Esther, who neither understood nor particularly admired this unlooked-for and uncalled-for display of feeling. "Good God!" burst from the old lord's chuckling at the success of his visit. "I thought she was going to be difficult" his thoughts ran; "but she's a woman, and, after all, the same baits catch all of them—all of them. There are two things a woman never seems able to resist—diamonds and a really smart turnout." He sat still for a few minutes after they turned into the High street, then called to Charles. "Charles, drive slowly from here to St. George's Hospital," he said. "Yes, in" lord," answered Charles. '"Never knoo 'm take sucli a heap of trouble before," murmured Charles to the coachman. "Ain't it wonderful?" returned that functionary, with a wink. The old lord was in luck's way, for just as they reached the corner of the hospital Amelia Harris came out of the big building. She saw him in a moment, and Lord Aylrner called out for E—-I' the carriage to stop. The carriage drew up close beside the curb, and Amelia Harris stood quite close to the door, so that not a word of her conversation could be heard by the two stilt and solemn figures who sat with their heads carefully turned away from the wicked lips. For a, few moments they stood star- lie ing right into one another's eyes, astounded, disgusted, baffled; she puzzled and a little angry at his unusual and extraordinary behavior. Of the two the old lord was the first to recover himself. Pon my soul, my dear lady," he said, with an immense attempt to seem jovial and even amused, "I never was so surprised in all my life before —never You might have knocked me down with a feather, 'pon my word, you might. A baby—a little son—and I left Mrs. Harris late yesterday afternoon, and hadn't the faintest suspicion that anything of the kind was lii the wind." Miss Brand raised her eyebrows and smiled rather coldly. "That is not very surprising, Lord Aylmer," she observed "As you never saw my cousin before yesterday, you could not be expected to have suspicious." "Oh, no, no; but you surprised me as muck er—so very much. Ana she is "Ob! yes, tlxanlcs; a? weU a.s we old man behind them. "Well?" he said. "Well," she said, looking at him in a hard, dry kind of way, "have you been there?" "Yes." "H'm— nice little surprise for you, I should fancy." "Oh, a devil of a surprise," irritably. Amelia Harris laughed cynically"Ah, I've been wondering all the morning what you'd think. Well," sharply, "does it make any difference, or are you going on, because if it does ---- " "Well?" "Well, I'll send on this telegram and give her this letter. Poor little fool! she has been worrying about the Indian mail all the morning." "You will do nothing of the kind— of course I am going on," cried Lord Aylmer, sharply, under his breath. "Give them to me— what are they? There—that will do. Go back — take a cab — and look after my interests as if —this— this— creature had not come at a.11 to interfere with my plans. If anything of importance occurs write to me at Aylmer's Field. If you need to use tuo telegraph, be very careful how yp« word your message." "On the old plan, I suppose?" she asked. "Yes; now go. Charles, to my club." WHERE TOMORROW BEGINS. Point iu tliti l.'!i«ltU! Wluiro Travelers ijONo on« i>»y. Out in the Pae'.fic ocean, somewhere about midway between San Francisco and Yokohama, is a place where tomorrow is born and the traveler skips from yesterday to to-morrow without being able to got a grip on to-day. One day is absolutely stolen out of his life, for if it be Tuesday on one side of the line, it is either Thursday or Tues- day'is repealed on the other. No matted which direction the ship may be sr.iling, the passenger is shy one whole day when he gets to that point. The weekly calendar operates from different sides of the sea, and the result is this conflict. In crossing the Atlantic from London to New York the passenger gains slightly over half an hour a day. From New York to Chicago he adds another hour to the three or four crossing the ocean, another in reaching Denver, and slill another on reaching San Francisco. The latter city reckons time eight hours later than London, and the better portion of a day later than Shanghai or Yokohama. In crossing the Pacific the traveler comes to the time when he catches up with the procession and drops a whole day out of his life as easily aa he glides through the water, driven by the ship's powerful screws. This line of demarkation is not a perpendicular one from north to south. The islands in the Pacific take their time reckonings from the continent with which they do the bull: of their trading. This causes the line to zigzag down the ocean in a very ragged manner. It might happen that the boat would strike an island which clings to San Francisco time, the vessel having already skipped a day. In such a case it would be Monday on shore and Tuesday aboard ship. These features illustrate the ease with which the days get tangled up in the Pacific. A Lingliiil Tai>Kl«.

"After having had a do/en or BO in rapid SUC- :ession, I made up my mind that I must lack tact, was too irritable or did not make sufficient allowance for the annoyances encountered by every household servant.

'I received that last one just as pleasantly as I would have received a favored guest. I went with her to her room, showed her where to put everything, had awnings put over the windows, because she thought the heat and light a little loo strong, placed a couple of extra shelves in the closet, fixed a nice place for her bicycle in the summer kitchen, voluntarily offered her an extra night out each week, personally assisted her to get a run of things in the kitchen and then praised her for everything I could approve, without pretending to notice her mistakes or to miss the dishes she broke. My idea was to win her by kindness and continued assurance of appreciation, I am sure that every nature is susceptible to such treatment." "Well, I'm not, by a good deal. But how did it come out?" "At the end of the first month, convinced by my constant approval that she was about the best girl in the city, she demanded $2 more per week and the right to put her wheel iu the front hall, where the 'gentle- mens' kept theirs, or she would leave.

Between 1 and 2 o'clock on a recent Saturday afternoon a daring theft was committed in the banking department of the Bank of England, which is reserved for purely bonking transactions, general or public banking business being done in other departments, says the London Times. Two "walk- clerks," or messengers, were sent from Messrs. Coutts to the Bank of England with an order for £3,000. One of the clerks, It appears, remained outside in a cab, while his colleague proceeded to obtain the money, which was handed to him across the counter in three canvas bags, each of which' contained £1,000. The clerk seems to have had his attention diverted in some way, and ho left the counter. His absence, however, was quite momentary, but on his return one of the bags was missing. An alarm was at once raised and the police of Old Jewry station were immediately communicated with. It te stated that, almost at the moment of (lie discovery of the theft a respectable-looking well-dressed man left the banking department, carrying a bag In his hand, and it is assumed that this was the stolen property. The thief, or thieves, however, succeeded in escaping. The robbery was a particularly audacious one, and it is believed that the culprit had "shadowed" Messrs. Coutts' messengers for some time in order to ascertain the hitter's movements before acting.
