Lady Latimor and •Colonel North had drawn out a pro- .gram that was most inviting: to my • thinking they spent a great deal of utimo over it, but it was'certainly'a ysuccess. I .remember every detail of it that New Year's eve,—how beautiful ;' ,lhe frozen snow looked in tho sunshine, how whito and hard tho ice Was,' •' how tho scarlet berries: of the holly-' j.trce glowed, how the robin red-l roasts. ,,' flew. A beautiful. Now." Year's eve, on ,; J- -which I albno saw tho shadow. '.I confess, Lady Latimor looked, lovely i '^enough that night to make any man /, Joso both heart and head! She had chosen a costume .worn generally by those who represent Juliet on tho stasre; blue velvet over white satin, /•with what looked like a net worker armor of pearls; her white shoulders .,-and arms shone through tho pearls, - "3ier face wore a dainty Jlusli, her eyes i- ; forgot all about myself; my heart 1 was heavy over her. I could not di- 1 vest myself of a foar, a foreboding \- that something was to happen that -,, 'night. A presentiment of coming evil isoemed to weigh me down. Captain Homing said to" me more than once, ; - vYou look tired and ill, Miss Lovel;" v but I could not answer him. I had no , heart—no heart. ' It did not surprise me that they ' clanced together, and more than one, 1 remarked that they were the hand'. somest pair in the room; nor was I • surprised that, instead of "dancing to- i Aether a second time, they wont into - the conservatory, nor when they -walked up and down the picturc-gal- \ lery, nor when they.paused for a few moments under the mistletoe bough and' I saw him kiss her; but I was surprised when I heard him say to her: "You need have no fear; I have inade overy arrangement. The car, riage will be at the turn of the road , by two o'clock. All will be well." They neither saw nor heard me; ' they were sitting behind a group of white camellias, tall trees with glossy ^ leaves, and I was on the other side, 4 hovering near her, always fearful, yet without knowing why. Lady Lati. TCO&V made some remark that I did not i liear. His answer was: "Trust to me, my darling; all' will fj- I turned away sick at heart, and from the depths of my soul I prayed j, heaven to savo her, for she was in deadly peril. C^jtill the real significance of thoso •words did not occur to me. "The carriage will be at the turn of the road by two o'clock." I thought it was I some arrangement about driving tho I* nejft day, and I said to myself, over and over again, that I must do something to Help her, something to save Jxer, or she would bo lost. Little did ,1'dream, even then, of what that New ~" would'bring forth. n , „, CHAPTER X.

There was nbthine timtstial at first sight,, btit whfen I opened the -wardrobe door, I sat*- the blue velvet afad pearls hastily thrust aside. 1 knew—I knew she had gone away with him. and had chosen the night because they imagined during the ekcitemeht they would' not be missed. Two o'clock, at the corner of the road! I knew the turning well; a great oak-tree stood there; we had often rested under its shade. Should I have time to reach it and to savo her? Quick as thought, I took a cloak and hat from her wardrobe* I did not stop to think; I knew, in the confusion no ono would notice me or miss me. I flow down the great staircase* across tho entrance hull, meeting no one; then I reached the hall door, and stood outside,trying for ono moment to think which was tho nearest way. If I could only reach tho corner of tho road before tho carriage started, I was all right, I should savo her, even if I lost my life in doing it. If tho carriage was gone, then eternal shame and disgrace to tho beautiful woman I loved. The moon was shining, but not very brightly, and tho stars wore out; tho snow gleamed whito and hard on the ground, tho tail trees, with their bare branches, stood liko giants. I looked neither to the right nor tho left; I ran for dear life, praying heaven, oven as I ran, to savo her— Savo hor from eternal shamo and woo. On, past the shining laurels and tho tall lirs; on, past tho frozen lake, past the lime-trees, past tho holly-bushes gleaming- crimson, past tho tall larches through which tho winter wind moaned and wailod;'has'lje.hiugYdospairing.cry- ing to hoavcn to help mo to savo hor; and then—oh, God be praised-and thanked!—I saw them. They had not reached tho park gates, and''sho was saved; for ho should not take hor away unless he killed mo first; I would cling to her—save hor in some way. They were walking quickly, but the next moment I was with them, by hor side. I cried out her name, I Hung my arms around her. "My darling, you must not, you shall not go!" and then I stood for ono moment breathless. Which should I speak to? What should I say? "I know," I cried at last. "Tho carriage is waiting at tho turn of tho road, and you—oh, Colonel North, gentleman and soldier—you want to take her away with you to eternal shame and eternal remorse! You shall not!" 'What, in heaven's name, brings you here, Audrey Lovel P" cried Colonel North. And I answered, "Heaven itself, to save her from ruin and death. You shall not take hor away; wo aro close to the lodge gates, and if you try to pass them and take her with you, I will raise such an alarm that you will be overtaken in five minutes, and she shall be dragged from you by force. Gentleman and soldier! Do you know that you aro a coward and thief in stealing another man's wife?" He drew back. - I went on: "The wife of an old man, powerless avenge himself—a man who has trusted you, whose bread you havo eaten, under whoso roof you havo found hospitable shelter. And you repay him by stealing his wife! Why did you not steal that which ho values less—his gold or his jewels? Oh, shame—bitter, endless shamo on you!" And it seemed to mo that the wind took up tho words and re-echoed thorn among the trees, "shame—bitter, endless shamo!" 1 turned to tho trembling girl, "Como back with mo, my darling," I said, "come back. It is only a bad, evil, black dream; como buck with mo;no one shall know." She hesitated, she half clung to him. I saw him throw his arm around her, and I saw defiance in his face, "Lady Latimer," I said, "do you know whoro thoso gates load? Look at them, and know tho road leading from them is tho path to hell." A low moan camo from hor lips. "Think, "I said; "it is not just now, while the glamour of love lies on you; it is not the present, it is tho Ion g years of tho futuro, when tho glamour will fall from your eyes, and you will remember nothing but tho wickedness of your sin. Wicked lovo never lasts long, and tho lovo of a man who would brand you with endless shamo is wicked, weak and cruel. Think of the long years of shame and sorrow and endless remorse! Como back with mo, darling!" '•You mean well, Miaa Lovel," said Colonel North, "but If you have any heart in your breast, you will not a»k her to go back. I maintain that she is not married—marriage means it union of heart*, it meana two aouia made one," . »«Marriago means tho VOWH taken before (jod and man, which can never be broken," I cried. "How can you ask her," he continued, "to go back to that lovelesa, cheerless, miserable Hfw?"

"Unclasp your arms, Miss Lovel. 1 have won her by right ot lovo; she Is mine and I shall take her!'' I tightened my clasp on the trornb- ling figure. "She belongs to Lord Latlmor," T said, "and while he lives no limn shall take her from him.*' Sho flung her arms round my nock, and cried tonic: "Let mo go, Audrey; I cannot return; let me go with him—I lovo him —I lovo him!" "No," I answered; "you arc not strong enough to savo yourself, but I am strong enough to savo you. Unless you, Colonel North, strike mo down dead, you shall not take her." "I do not kill women," said Colonel Isorth. "You do worse," I cried; "you ruin their souls. You protend that ym love this poor child; you would' bo kinder far, braver far, if you plunged a dagger in her heart, than take hor away with you. The murclor of tho body Is little compared to tho murder of a soul." Ho started as though my words had shot him; his hands foil from hor. I throw my arms round her and drew hor closer to mo. "There is no timo to lose,"I said. "If you toko one, you take both; if you take Lady Latimor, you tako mo; I will not loose my hold on hor until sho Is safo from you. I repeat thoro is no timo to lose. You do not foar my words; I shall give a cry that will soon bring help to us." "No, no!" ho cried, hastily. But I did. I wonder now'that I had tho nocvo. I gavo a long, low cry, and tho next minute wo saw a light in one of tho windows of tho lodge. "Look," .1 said, "wo shall hayo holw soon." ' "Go, Philip," said Lady Latimor; "go, thoro is no help for us." "I could curse you for your cruel work!" ho said. "You will bless mo some timo," I answered. Lot mo say good-bye to you Philip." cried Lady Latimor, and hor volco was full of anguish. "Ah, my lovo, my lovo, found so lato and lost forever!" "Ono word, Colonel North," I said. 'I will keep your secret, but it must be on my own terms. You must louvo tho house to-morrow morning undor tho pretext that you havo rocoivod a telegram, and you must swear to mo that you will never return. If you do so, 1 shall at onco toll Lord Latimor all that has passed." Ho bowed; he could not speak; and as ho turned away from mo I saw tho tears rain down his faco. Thou wo had to draw back and s.tand in silonco undoriho dark shado of tho troos, for the lodgo-koopor camo out, lantern in hand, followed by his wife. "T. am sure I heard voices," ho said. "I am sure I heard a cry," stho ro- pliod. They looked about for some timo, thon went in-doors again, I could not help his turning back and taking Lady Latimer in his arms again. Ono quick, passionate embrace and ho was gone. I led hor home. Sho did not wedp, but from her lips came a low, soft moan. Never mind if sho died of it; I had saved her from worse than death. Wo spoke no word until wo reached tho house. 1 knew we must run some risk, [TO 7JK COSTINUKD.] Ill Pluto's Day.

This was the oW fashioned way, where tho teacher sat In his chair and delivered long leetoives, and the students took notes, and perhaps the same style ot instruction was given as occurred in the Latin or Greek leoturo mom. The laboratory was a comparatively unknown factor as an instructional agent then. «wb the people began to demand special education, and the work o! tho teacher of agriculture became specialised and was, divided, and horticulture was given into charge ol another. Other divisions of labor came, and along with this came the now dnlry problems, tho experiment stations began to publish the results oi Investigations of much importance, and unally,. 1 think it was hi 1880, Cornell university erected a dairy building for experimental work, and adapted to Instructional purposes.

Dairy Light Increases.— Up to 'within comparatively recent years, in many important respects, dairymen differed In opinions concerning the handling of 'milk and making of choose and butter. Systematic investigations had not been conducted and as a consequence there was much "rule o'thumb" in tho dairy. Under such conditions there was much* diversity of opinion on certain questions, which have boon largely sotklod by dairy investigators. As our population' increased, conAncroinl dairying assumed more and more importance, and thinking men saw in H u lucrative branch of agricultural work.

Fresh bones from tho market cost but a trifle. They should bo obtained frosh each day. Their value is duo to tho perfectly frosh animal food which they contain, along with tho other elements not found in sufficient quantities in corn and wheat. It lias been proved that green cut bone will often Increase the egg yield from fiO to 100 per eentj it also will stimulate the fowls daring the moulting period to sueh an extent that the flocks do not suffer as formerly in this trying time. The jnices and gristle in tho fresh bone contain, in a digestible form, large quantities of nitrogen, which is absolutely demanded in forming the now quills and new feoth- orfl; therefore, in moulting, this nitro- gen.when fresh bones are fed, is* drawn from the food given to the fowl instead of being drawn from the reserve force of the fowl, which takes her strength, stops her from laying, and makes her prone to disease, Vfe are sure that the practical and economical farmer or ponltryman of to-day, who looks well at coat, will ntflize a material for poultry which Tarings in the end the greatest profit. We have used the granulated bone and paid a good price for it, but by nainjf a, bone cutter we got meat, gristle, oil, fat, fine bone and granulated bone all in tme operation. The sharp, hard piecea of bone act as- grit.

If,, in Farmers' Keview. must put their- hands into their pockets, if they oxpoct to. got legislation ttat will protect their rights. One of the groat reasons why the interests of the dairy are-sacrificed to tho interests of bogus butter Is that the parties most Interested aa'G not willing to pay their little to. help, out tho expenses of organization and, agitation. This was brought out very vividly n/t the last meeting of the lowadakymen, when an effort was made- to> raiso money lor needful expenses attending the securing of proper legislation.
