V.—( "It is a very welcome invasion, tti«.'am," said he, clearing his throat afld pulling- at his high collar. "Try ' this garden chair. What Is there that ' 1 can do for you? Shall I ring and let Atrs. Denver know that you are here?' "Pray , do not trouble, Admiral. I only looked In with reference to our tie chat this morning. 1 wish that you Would give Us your powerful support at our coming meeting for the improvement of the condition of woman.'^ "No, ma'am, I can't do that. .He pursed up his lips and shook his grizzled head. .. ' "And why not?" '••-'.'• "Against my principles, ma'am." "But why?" "Because woman has her duties and man has his. I may be old-fashioned, but that is my view. Why. What is the world coming to? I was saying to Dr. Walker only last night that we shall have a woman wanting to command the Channel Fleet next." ' "That la one of the few professions Which cannot be Improved," said Mrs. , vVestmacott, with her sweetest smile. "Poor woman must still look to maji for protection." "I don't like these new-fangled Ideas, ma'am. I tell you honestly that 1 don't. I like discipline, .and I think every one Is better for it.- Women have M'ol a great deal which they had not in the days of our fathers. They have universities all for themselves, I am told, and there 'are women doctors, I hear. Surely they should rest contented. What more can they want?" "You are a sailor, and sailors are always chivalrous. If you could see how things really are, you would change your opinion. What are the poor things 1 to do? There are so many of them and so few things to which they can turn their hands. Governesses? But there- are hardly any situations. Music and drawing? There Is not one in fifty who has any special talent in that direction. Medicine? It Is still surrounded with 'difficulties for women, and it takes many years and a small fortune to qualify. Nursing? It is hard work 111 paid, and none but the strongest can stand it. What would you have them do then, Admiral? Sit down and starve?" - "Tut, tut! It is not so bad as that." "The pressure is terrible. Advertise for a lady companion at ten shillings a week, which is less than a cook's wage, and see how many answers you get. There Is no hope, no outlook, for these struggling thousands. Life Is a dull, sordid struggle, leading down to a cheerless old age.' Yet when we try to bring some little ray of hope, some chance, however-distant, of something better, we are told by chivalrous gentlemen that it is against their principles to help." The Admiral winced, but shook hlu head in dissent. "There Is banking, the law, veterinary surgery, government offices, the civil .service, all these at least should be thrown freely open to women, if they have brains enough to compete successfully for them. Then If woman wore unsuccessful it would be her own fault, and the majority of the population of this country could no longer complain that they live under a different law to the minority, and that they are held down in poverty and serfdom, with every road to independence sealed to them," "What nia'am?" "To set the more obvious injustices right, and so to pave the way for a reform. Now look at that man digging in the field, 1 know him. He can neither read nor write, he is steeped in whisky, and h'e has as much IntelliT genee as the potatoes that he Is dig- 'gjj^g, Yet the man has a vote, can possibly turn the scale of an election, and may help to decide the policy of this 'empire. Now, to take the nearest example, here am I, a woman, who have i''hafi'som? education, who have traveled, find who have seen and studied the Jn- '^titutlons of many countries. I hold considerable property, and J pay move in imperial taxes than that man spends %\.wh}gky, which Is saying a great deal, yet J have no more direct influence i the disposal of the money which than the fly which creeps along the" wall. Is that right? Is U fair?" The, Admiral moved uneasily in his ,<?}iajr.' "Yours Is-an exceptional case," •said he. 'Mjut «o woman has u voice. Consider |h.$t the women are a majority jri tb~' jja^ion. Yet if'there W a.s a question of upon which #11 women weiv upon one side ana all the men the other, it would appear that m'atter \ya? settled unanimously jnore than half the population ppoged to it, l?. that right?" the Admiral wriggled, it wun awkvvara far tlie gallant seaman ave ~t\ handsojnot 'wutijari opposite jornba»'diiig hip* with uuestions Qfwhleh, he could Und an an- eveji gpt the tampions ''-.as h0 ejqilalned UH> t|?9-t realij ih " .the would you propose v to do, that with aft evil woi'd in his throat. "There, there, ma'am f " he cHed. "Drop it for a time. 1 have heard chough. YoU'Ve turned me a point or two. 1 won't deny' It. But let It stand at that. I will think it over." "Certainly, Admiral. We Would not hurry you In your decision. BUt We still hope to see yoU'ort our platform." She rp.se and moved abou't In her lounging masculine fashion from one picture to another, for the walls were thickly covered with reminiscences of the Admiral's Voyages. "Hullo!" Said she. "Surely this Ship would have furled all her lower canvas and reefed her topsails If she found herself oh a lee shore With the Wind on her quarter." "Of course she would. The artist was never past Qravesend, I swear. It's the Penelope as she was on the 14th of June, 1867, In the throat of the Straits of Banca, with the Island of Banca on the starboard bow, and Sumatra on the port. He painted l.t from description, but, of course, as you very Sensibly say, all was shus: below and she carried storm sails and double-reefed topsails, for it was blowing a cyclone from the sou'east. I compliment you, ma'am, I do indeed!" "Oh, I have done a little sallorlng myself—as much as a woman can aspire to, you know. This Is the Bay of Funchal. What a lovely frigate!" "Lovely, you say! Ah, she was lovely ! That Is the Andromeda. I was a, mate aboard of her—sub-lieutenant they call It now, though I like the old name best." '.''."• "What a lovely rake her masts have, and what a curve to her bows! She must have been a clipper," The old sailor rubbed his hands and his eyes glistened. His old ships bordered close upon his wife and his son in his affections. ' "I know Funchal," said the lady carelessly.- "Ascouple of years ago I had a seven-ton cutter-rigged yacht, the Banshee, and we ran over to Maderia from Falmouth." ."You, ma'am, In a seven-tonner?" "With a couple of Cornish lads for a crew. Oh, It was glorious! A fortnight' right out in the open, with no worries, no letters, no callers, no petty thoughts, nothing but the great silent sky. They talk of riding, indeed, I am fond of horses, too,' but what is there to compare with the swoop of a little craft as she pitches down the long steep side of a wave, and then the quiver and spring as she is tossed upwards again? Oh, If our souls could transmigrate I'd be a seamew above all birds that fly! But I keep you, Admiral. Adieu!" The old sailor was too transported with sympathy to say a word. He could only shake her broad muscular hand. She was half way down the garden path before she heard him calling her, and saw his grizzled head and weather- stained face looking out from behind the curtains. "You may put me down for the platform," he cried, and vanished abashed behind the curtain of his Times, where his wife found him at lunch time. "I hear that you have had quite a long chat with Mrs. Westmacott," said she. "Yes, and I thlirk that she is one of the most sensible women that I ever knew." . ' "Except on the woman's rights question, of course." "Oh, I don't know. She had a good deal to say for herself on that also, In fact, mother, I have taken a platform ticket for her meeting." CHAPTER VI, AN OLD S'l'ORV. UT THIS was not to be the only eventful conversation which Mrs. West- macott held that 'day, nor was the Admiral the only person in the Wilderness who was destined to flnd his •opinions considerably changed. Two neighboring families, the Winslows from Anerley, and the Cumberbatches from Gipsy Hill, had been invited to tennis by Mrs. Westmacott, and the lawn was gay in the evening with the blazers of the yourtg men and the bright dresses of the girls, To the older people, sitting round In their wicker-work garden chairs, the darting, stooping, springing white figures, the sweep of skirts and twinkle of canvas shoes,the click of the rackets and sharp whiz of the balls, with the continual "fifteen love—fifteen* all!" nf the marker, made m> a merry and exhilarating scene. To see their sons and daughters so flushed and healthy und happy gave them also a reflected glow, and it was hard to say who had most pleasure from the game, those who played or those who watched. Mrs. Westmacott had Just finished a set when she caught a glimpse of Clsu-a. Walker sitting a.lone at the farther end of the ground. She ran dawn the court, cleared the net to the amassement of Uu> vis-'itorw, und seated herself beside her. Clara's reserved and refined nature shrank from the boisterous frankness and Ktrange manners of the widow, and j yet; her feminine instinct told her that beneath nil liur peculiarities there lay much that was aood arid noble. She smij.ed up at her, thurefure, and nodil- ed a greeting. , "Why aren't you playing', then? Don't i tor goodness sakf, begin (u b« languid ; and yQting Jndyish. Wiu»« you give- uj> active suort« you give uy youth." ' i "1 ;huve J>lim--<i y. set, Mrs. Wustma- C.C?t,t'" " njy deiir." Sfte^at down tappet}, Jipr upon the A \j jnc * xjut, wnyi "It Seemed to me mbst delicate, iuu see, Clara, the mailer stands ifi this way. It is quite possible that t may BOOK flnd myself in •& coftrpieteiy hew sphere of life, which will involve fresh duties and make it Impossible for me to keep Ufa a household which Charles cat share." . Clara Stared, bid this mean that she was about to marry again? What else could It point to? "Therefore Charles must have a household of his own. *hat IS obVtoUs. Now, I don't approve of bachelor establishments. Do you?" "Really, Mrs. Westmacott, 1 have never thought of the matter." "Oh, you little sly puss! Was there ever a girl who ilever thought of the matter? I think that a young man of slx-and-twenty ought to bo married." , Clara felt very uncomfortable. The awful thought had come upon her that this, ambassadress had come to her 1 as a proxy with a proposal of marriage/ But how could that be? She had hot spoken more than three or four times With her nephew, and knew nothing more of him than he had told her on the evening before. It was Impossible, then.' And yet what could his aunt mean by this discussion of his private affairs? "Do you not think yourself," she persisted, "that a young man of slx-and- twenty Is better married?" "I should think that he Is old enough to decide for himself." ...- ; "Yes, yes. He has done so. But Charles Is just a little shy, just a little slow Ih expressing himself. I thought that I Would pave the way for him. Two women can arrange these things so much better. Men sometimes have a difficulty In making themselves clear." "1 really hardly follow you, Mrs* Westmacott," cried Clara in despair. "He has nn profession. But ; he han nice tastes. He reads Browning every night. And he is most amazingly strong. When he was younger we used to put on the gloves together, but • I cannot persuade him' to now,"for he says he cannot play light enough. I should allow him five hundred, which should bo enough at first." "My dear Mrs. Westmacott," cried Clara, "I assure you that I have not' the least idea what It is that you are talking of." "Do you think your sister Ida would have my nephew Charles?" Her sister Ida? Quite a little thrill of relief and of pleasure: ran through her at the thought." Ida and Charles Westmacott. She had never tho.ught of it. And yet they had' been a go'od deal together. They had played tennis. They had shared the tandem tricycle. Again came the thrill of joy, and close at its heels' the cold questionings of conscience. Why this joy? What was the real source of it? Was it that deep down, somewhere pushed back In the black recesses of the soul, there was the thought lurking that' If 'Charles prospered In his wooing then Harold Denver would;; still be free? How mean, how unmaidefnly, how unsisterly the thought! She crushed it down and thrust it aside, but still It would push up Its wicked little head, "She crimsoned with shame at her 'own baseness, as she turned once more to her companion. "I really do not know," she said. "She,is not engaged?" :, "Not that I know of." "You speak hesitatingly." "Because I, am not sure. But he may ask. She cannot but be flattered." "Quite so. I tell him that it Is the most practical'compliment which a man can pay to a woman. Ho is a little shy, but when he sets himself to do It he. will do it. Pie!

People say, "'f his is LorM Rosei bery's doing," and they are right. It is the Prime Minister , who ultimately advises the Queen, and his interest in ,'iterature and art Is Well known. He is a great reader, a student, a writer, and ever since he entered public life has. cultivated social relations with men of- letters and art, It was noticed whett he gave his dinner to the Shah of Persia that Mr. Browning was one of his guests, and last year at the dinner in honor of the Queen's birthday Captain Mahan and other distinguished writers were present, an Innovation without precedent. This year Sir John Mlllais, the eminent artist, and Sir William Broadbent, the eminent physician, were among the Prime Minister's -guests. These' are, if you choose, trivial incidents. In London they are not thought trivial, tt requires perhaps more courage to take a new social departure than (TO'BB co.vrixujsiJ.j-. , J.ifo In .JUassHDJiuHetts, A unique entertainment was given last evening in the Second Universalist Church In Lynn, says the 1 Bostdn 'Herald. It ,was called--a "Tom Thumb' 1 weddihg," and the "contracting parties" ' justified .the title by, their shortness of stature, whiqh almost pcjuale& the shortness of the term of the marriage contract. The bride was Miss Ruth wyilam.s/S years of age, and the groonvwas Master Thomas Casey, 0 years of age. 'jThe ceremony took place beneath a daisy bell in the auditorium of the church,'[.which was' prettily decorated. The bride and groom were at- tended'by Hazel C. Towne, 4 years old, maid of honor, and a groomsman, sijc bridesmaids, six ushers, two flower-girls, and two pages, all attired In full court costume, completed the bridal party, which passed beneath thveo floral archos^o the altar, where the bride was given 'away by her "father," Muster Ha Han Drown, 4 years old. The ceremony was performed by tho rector, the "Rev." Harry Dale, 4 years old, attired In clerical vestments. After the ceremony the bride and groom held a brief reception and a, wort- dins' breakfast'was served. SIR WALTER BESANT. Any other. Lord ;Rosebery has taken so many that no one was surprised when It became known that he had induced the Queen to offer knighthoods to Mr;' Walter irBesant, Mr. William M. .Conway, Mr. Lewis. Morris, Dr. William Howard Russellj and Mr. Henry Irving. .The word "induced" is, I think, the -right one to use. The Queen-Is a woman of much liberality of mind, her position considered, but her liberality has seldom led her toward •literature, a' Iword which itself is hardly broad enough to Include the "Jour: nal of Our Life in the Highlands." But Lord ! Rosebery, as you see from the above list, has gone a step farther. He has sought to honor not only literature but journalism. It is not necessary nor expedient to draw a broad line between those two departments of intellectual effort. There are points at which they meet, and if they are not always identical they are of kin to each other.' Dr. W. H. Russell is a journalist who has many of the graces of literature, but he Is, and always has been, pre-eminently a journalist. We in America know him as such, and as ouch have done him some injustice, or, tci say the least, misunderstood him. It' was his misfortune to be present at the Battle of Bull Run, and to describe it, We did not like his description, and we dubbed him Bull Run Russell, and set him down as an enemy of America. •But only the other day I met a very distinguished and patriotic American, who told me that he was at this battle, saw as much of it as one man could see, read Dr. Russell's account of It, and thought It a perfectly fair and accurate narrative. Any one who will read it to-day, now that the fervent heats of those early days of the civil war havs cooled, will see that it is Inspired by no spirit of animosity to the North. But what Dr. Russell had to describe was a defeat,'a rout, a panic, such as often besots raw troops. No nation likes to have the lime light turned on at such a moment' as that. We beheaded Dr. Russell, or, at least, banished him and drove him home, Mr. Stantop making himself not very long after the instrument of popular vengeance. But then and now the man whom we detested for telling too much truth at a too critical time was a friend to this coun- «try, However, his great fame had been ]iim>Qlf 1'ncl'ul.

When we etfme to "All Sorts and Conditions of Meil" we approach the social side of Mr. fiesaht's literary work. Like Dickens, the seamy side of life has interested him; the problems of poverty and of that inequality in the distribution of wealth which has existed since the earliest times. This Is the booU Which is supposed to have laid the foun* tlations of the People's Palace in White- chapel, in the East End of London. When the palace was opened with mirch state and ceremony by the Queen, and when, toward the close of the-exercises, Mr. Besant was summoned to th* royal platform and presence, we all thought that he was to be knighted then and there. But the heavy sword of Sir .Patrick Grant, hurriedly borrowed for the occasion by her Majesty, fell Insteail upon the shoulder of soirte wprthy Philistine Whose name the world, If not his parish, has unhappily forgotten. The People's Palace, however*, Is one Of the great charitable foundations Ih which Lord Rosebery has shown his Interest to the extent of some $20,000, and It may well be that ho did hot forget Mr. Besant's contribution, An Idea sometimes returns better Interest than money, and sometimes tarings money also. I do not know whether Mr. "VV. M. Conway's Is a name of renown in America. He has In England a very considerable fame as a mountaineer and as a writer upon mountaineering; some also as an art critic, though Mr. Ruakln seems long since to have monopolized nearly all the celebrity to be won In that Held. His book on "Climbing, In the Himalayas" was widely read among u people who, like the English, have an insatiable appetite for stories of adventure. He hr.s a book now In the press on Alpine climbing, in which he will have the difficult task of surpassing, 1.' he can, Mr. Whymper. He Is Mr. Besant's successor In the council of the Society of Authors—a position which does not so much imply supremacy In literature as good business abilities and energy. And he Is a liberal politician try- Ing to win his spurs In public life by capturing a conservative constituency. This last qualification for a knighthood avails much. •, Mr. Lewis Morris Is on the list. That la not a name, I Imagine, which-signifies much In America The author of "The Epic of Hades" has a certain reputation In England, little elsewhere. "From first to last," says the Saturday Review, "he has been popular, because from the first he has been constant to his own mediocrity, a mediocrity more complete, complacent, and convincing than that of any other contemporary versifier." I always thought that Mr. Lewis Morris owed his popularity in great measure to an obiter dictum of Mr. Bright, who incidentally praised one of his early poems in a speech. A careless word or two from Mr. Bright In those days: went for much. Because he was a great SIR LEWIS MORRIS, orator and a great popular tribune s of his admirers assumed that lie must bo a good judge of poetry. HP wad hardly that. Whether Mr, Lewis Morris has popularized poetry or not, he has vulgarized it, The name which attracts most attention among the knights is Mr, Henry Irvlng's, At last an actor has been knighted, It has long been a. question, whether the act would over be accomplished during tho present reign. The Queen is a stickler fur precedent, and there was no-precedent. She has very rigid, notions upon all matters relating to her Court. Shp has received Mr, Irving privately at Windsor, when he and his company have acted before her, but he has never been publicly presented, Now he must be, In the mind of Her Majesty it is a great step; so also in the mind of the English public, which sets such store by these privileges and dlsr Unctions as the minds of other people may flnd it-difficult'to comprehend; To knight the leading aotor of the English stage Is to elevate the whole profession in the social scale. It is no secret that an effort to this end has long been made, and that Mr. Irving values his new title most of all because it takes oft 1 a kind of social stigma which exclurlon from Court Is supposed to leave upon all the men and women of the profession. Yet for years past actors, and to some extent actresses, have found fheir way into sotno of the best society in England. The- Fringe of Wales goes to supper with Mr. Irving, and Mr, Irving mul Mr, Toole dine with the Prince of "Wales at Murlborough House. Mr. Irving has been one of the guests at Mentmure, when 1/ord Rosebery had a Saturday to Monday party there for the Prince of Wales. Scores of other Instances could bo cited. Many of the heat houses iu London have long bc-en open to tho best actors, Mr. Wymjhsuu was to bo met. onjy thp Other night at the Duchos,'4 of Devonshire's reception in Devonshlvo liousc', and Mi'- George Alexander waa at the Marchioness of JUonUon^en-y's. it in useless to multiply names.
