A Passive Crime, BY "THE Dt r Cltl3SS." iff itnp69Sien§d vdi6l§. ftii girt neithef startled nor Surprised, and when sh« 'speAKS, her adit, CHAPTER IV—CONTINUED. "Well, my dear, perhaps so. I I am stupid," said Mi's. Neville, who, though the best and kindliest of women, is certainly in no danger of setting the Thames afire with hor cleverness. "Though I can't see why you should dislike the idea so much. Ho is quite charming, In my opinion, and so handsome! Then there is Lord Stretton; you can't toll me that he does not adore the very ground you walk on!" "Oh, Strstton!" said Maud, dis- , dainfully. •Dick Penruddock is, of course, |in many ways far preferable," she says, presently, shifting ground. is quite as rich, and is younger, land has prettier manners. But, then, you say you object to Dick, also." "No, I don't object to Mr. Penruddock," says the girl, with a soft, slow blush; "that is not it. -You mistake mo, Mimi." (This is the pet name she gave to Mrs. Noville when a child.) "i only mean that 'i ; shall never marry." fa . "But why—whyi"' impatiently. ""' "Can you ask me thut?" retUrns she, with a glance full of the liveliest reproach. "But the thing is not a secret— all the world knows how I adopted you, and that you are the daughter of some poor mechanic, dead before I ever saw you. But they know, too, that you are the most beautiful and the most charming girl in the town! Yes, you are!" in answer to a deprecating shake of Miss Neville's head; "and if these men love you, and choose to overlook such a little fault, why, then, I cannot see-—" "A little fault!" repeats she sadly- Then with a touch of pride, "Nay it is no fault at all, but it is a great misfortune; and though Stretton— or—oil Mr. Penruddock may, perhaps, J foolishly wish to marry me, do yo,u honestly believe their families Would receive me with open arms? Do you think it at a.l likely that Dick's father would be glad to see him married to a girl without name? It is impossible, Mimi!" "1 know not what they think or say, but I know that if he were my son I \vould gladly see him married to you," says Mimi, maintaining her cause stoutly. "That is because you love me, and because you are different from all the rest of the world," says the girl, gently, looking at her through a soft mist, that dims the beauty of her eyes, and is born of tenderness, and gratitude, and deep affection. CHA>rER~V. After the Dance. It is many hours later, and the dance is at its best and gayest. The sound of musio and the delicate perfume of dying flowers are in the air. The rooms are filled with all that London can afford of its brightest and highest, and best; and pretty women in toilets almost as desirable as themselves, are smiling- and waving their fans, and doing all the damage that soft eyes and • softar speech are supposed to 4o. It is the third waltz and the band is playing , «»Mon Revo," In Dick Pem-uddook's ' t opinion it is the wait?; of the even- 'ipg, as his arm is round Maud Neville, and her perfect head is very jie&r his own. Ho is as happy a,a a snati pan be who holds all he deems njosfc preeiows for one moment to hia v foeaJt;, i^Qwipg that the next might separate, them, forever. Presently t^ey pause .tQjt'egi, and find thera- «elyes n§a.i- tfts, &9QV pi sry tone, though perhaps a shade slowet; than usual, i3 firmer than even Only she charigea color, or grow,s pale until her very lips are bloodless. "Ysu speak without thought or reflection," she says, gently. "You have considered nothing. No, no; do not interrupt mo! I am sorry this has occurred; but there ia no reason Why we should not forget what you have just said, and be good friends as we were before." "There is a reason, and a strong one," returns he, very quietly now; "and as to our being more friends, that is quite out of the question. Do you Imagine me an impulsive boy to say a thing one moment and regret it the next? I have dared to say tonight What I have wanted to say for many days. And 1 must have my answer now." "And my birth—have you forgotten that?" demanded she, looking at him fixedly. "I have lorgotten nothing. But to We it makes no difference. Princess or peasant, how can it matter? I love you. Darling," says the young man very earnestly, taking both of her hands and holding them closely, "I implore you to bslieve in my love! Take time for reflection, consider well. I entreat you to give mo no hurried answer." "I do not hurry," returns she, in a straugo tone; "I will not even argue with you. Lot us say no more about U; aud please let my hands go, Mr. Peftruddock. I cannot marry you—indeed I cannot." "But why?—tit .least, tell me that," demands he desperately, refusing to release hor hands. "Maud, ans\ver rael Do you—is it.true that you love another better, and that is why you czAinot care lor me." "No: that is untrue," replies she, with quicu paiu in voice and eyes. "I love,-no one better than you; which means, of course"—hurriedly, and with a sad little quivering laugh—"that I love no one. You will understand me." "Only too well," return's ho sadly. He lifts her hands and kisses them separately, in a forlorn, lingering fashion. "And yet there is some talk of Stretton,"ho says, miserably, his face haggard and unhappy. "Believe nothing you hear," she says impressively; only this—that I shall never marry." Rising and turning abruptly from him, she moves toward the ballroom, and standing in the doorway, gazes, without seeing anything, at the swaying crowd before her. Presently she becomes'conscious that two dark eyes are fixed upon hor; she fielct Mind that 1 fiined favor been treated e&nftot »&e how hd Mi when all others havS With studied Coldness? "Are you tired P" mte be. seeing sighs, and raises, pn§ band in a worried fashioa tP, em loose, hairs that have in, sit flown for a little while," H.0 tighten.^ J»ig apm, OB the turns restlessly, and Captain Saumarez stands at her side. "Not da,ncing, Miss Noville?" begins he, lightly. "And all alone, too!" Then with a change of rnttn- ner, and throwing some concern into his tone, he says, quietly, "¥ou look overtired. May I take you out of this, to one of the smaller rooms beyond, or in hero?" pointing t& the conservatory she had just quitted. "Oh, no;-not in there!" exclaims 'she with some distress. "But I shall be glad to get away for a little while." Taking his arm, she makes her way slowly through the dancers and the lingerers at the doorway, and presently sinks with a sigh of relief, into a low chair, in a small room that opens o.ff an ante-chamber. The music seems so very far away that the noise and confusion could almost be forgotten. Oh, that she could not get rid. of her companion, and find herself, if only for one short half hour, alone! "Something has annoyed you. Can I help you in any way?" says Saumarez, in his gentlest manner. "You are very good. No; it is nothing. I ani only slightly fatigued," returns she, listlessly. "May I get you something? A glass of wine—some ice water?" "Thank, you—nothing." * t Her evident determination not to bo friendly, her extreme coldness of voice and gesture, pi quo him beyond endurance, What has he done to her that this proud girl should treat him \vith"Buoh open distain? "I saw you go into the conservatory about ten minutes ago," he says, after a slight pause, some reokless desire to rouse her from her apathy, and bring anger, if he cannot summon Jove, into those beautiful eyes below him, inciting hjm to his speech. "You seemed greatly disturbed when you came put again. Was J that hoy rude to you?" • •That, bpy?" repeats she, in an impassable tpne, »<J aw speaking of PenvuddPck." returns he, wjtfc a <JP9l persistence, "Was be rude?" *-I hardly know hpw to answer such a question," say a Miss frigidly. "J never kne\v until to/night—that any man. QPuid' then I am tP understand pjend?" says genius at bis Do «ov think I have not noticed how he- —•" "I decline to discuss Mr. Penruc!* dock wlith you," says Maud, throwing up her head with a gesture full of graceful dignity that might have adorned a queen. "Is he so precious in you* sight?" says Saumarez, with a sneer. "And is this new lover prepared to overlook the fact of your humble birth?" "Take care, sir; do not go "too far!" says Maude, her voice vibrating With indignation. "I don't care how far I go now," declares he, all the evil blood in his heart surging upward to tha surface, "t love you, too! Yes; you shall listen to me. though it be for the last time!" tightening his fingers on her wrist.* "I love you, as that boy can never love you—with all the strength of a man's deepest devotion!" § "Hush! your mention of love is but an insult!" says she, in a withering tone. "My voice is not so silken as his, no doubt," replies he, driven to madness by her loathing. "Nor do soft words trip'• so readily from my tongue. But will his love stand tha test of time? Will he never regret that he has married one who is—" "Lowly born." She supplies the v;ords; speaking them bravely, and not flinching from the stroke. "Ay, and basely!" says he, between his teeth. It is a lie, and he knows it. But at this moment he would have uttered any ialso thing to lower the pride of the woman whom-—a strange paradox—he loves, yet hates! A terrible change passes over Miss Neville's countenance as the words cross his lips. "No, no; it is not true!" she cries, all her courage forsaking her. "I will .not believe it! What can you know more than all the others? Ah! Is it for this reason I. have dreaded you? Have pity, and unsay your words!" "I do not speak without authority," replies he, quickly, stung again by her admission that sho dreads him. "I know all about your birth"—there is ati air of undoubted truth about these words that strikes cold to hor heart—"and I tell you again, that you are not only humbly but basely born!" Sho shudders violently. A low cry escapes her, and with the hand that still remains free she covers her face. At this instant Penruddock, followed by Mr. Wilding, with whom he is earnestly conversing, enters the room. He is unfortunately in time to hear Miss Neville's agonized cry, and to hear Saumarez's las t words. Going up to the latter he pushes him backward, releasing Maud from his grasp. "Who has dared to apply such words as 'basely born' to Miss Neville?" he asks, in fiery tones. "I have said so, and say it again!" says Saumarez, with his usual evi' sneer. "You are a coward!" says Penruddock, losing all command of his temper; and, raising his gloved hand he strikes him across the face. There is a second's awful silence then Saumarez—who has instinctively raised' his hand to his cheek, on which a pink line may be traced —says, quietly, turning to Penruddock, "When, and where?" "The sooner the better," says Dick, still white, and wild with fury. Maud, who had shrunk aside, and who is now standing close to Mr. Wildine, says to him, in a nervous whisper, so low as to be almost unintelligible, "What does it all titt&B-urg has withdrawn from the NationalTBasftball association and the organization may collapse. four favorites and two second choices won the Harlem purses.
