"Illustrious Iriah women," 4c. CHAPTER XL THE PRATES OF HANVAH. Well, William French begins to think that,after all, like many wiser people, he may have been somewhat mistaken and that he most certainly have judged Rose Dogherty too harshly. Her conduct towards him ever since she has been an inmate of his house his been simply perfect; respectful, but not tno obsequious, nor too deferential; she is ever watchful, ever on the alert to anticipate his least wish. Rose has, unasked, taken upon herself the care of the surgery. As a rule, doctors are not UR. tidy men, but it so happens that William French is one of the exceptions which prove the rule. No more untidy man exists than the Doctor of Kilma- hon. Rse has noted this, and every instru- ment an t phial is carefully cleaned and dusted regu arly. hut, at the same time, is left exactly where the Doctor has laid it, whether it be its proper )p ace or not. William French likes these little attentions, and appreciates them more than he even knows himself tha.t he dots. He thinks Rose's conscience smites her for the trick she tried to play off upon him, and in the true gt-nerosity of his heart he deter- mines to try and foiget the circumstance, since the poor woman seems so anxious to make reparation— and that so unobtl naively-for her conduct. And thus it comes to pass that, little by little, Rose Dogherty endeavours quietly to get into her hands the whole machinery of the household. Yet by no outward and visible siICn does she appear to do no. She is as deferential as heart could wish to Kate; never, ap- parently, acts save under her mistress's direc- tions yet Kate, in some misty way, is beginning to feel that Rose Dogherty is more of a power in the household than she is herself. Kate, for her life, could not tell how she has arrived at this conclusion. She cannot put the feeling into any tangible worda, or she would certainly speak of it to William. She ouly knows that she feels such to be the case. And knowing it, Kate does not like it. She looks in the glass at her pretty face, and then she furtively glauces at Rose Dogherty; and the loving little wife then puts away, as a thought unworthy of herself, that she should for a second feel a pang of jealousy of Rose Dogherty. For all that, KatM acknowledges to herself that she does not like William to appeal so often to Rose for everything he may require nor does she like Rose to be ever so ready at the beck and call of her ma-ter. But what can she do 1 Why, she does what many another woman has done, what many a woman does, and what women will do to the end of the world-Kate just eats out her heart in secret. "Roaet" calls out William French, entering the house in a hurry, one morning—for a wonder Rose is not on the spot to answer promptly-when he and Kate have been about a year marritd, u Where are you ?" What is the matter, William ? What is it you want ? asks Kate, running down the stairs, looking fresh and bright in her pretty cambrio morning wrapper. I want Rose, dear." Will not I do as well ?" says Kate. Rose is out at present." "What a nuisance!" exclaims the Doctor, rather testily. I wanted Rose particularly. There's a poor little child in the surgery it has been run over and I wanted her to hold it whilst I bandage it up. Its mother is of no use, she is in such a state of fright." Let me help you, William I" vohr teers Kate eagerly. Let me hold the child." "No, no, my dear," he replies hastily. but not unkindly;" you would not be able, dear. Besides,! want Rose to prepare the bandages for me." As William French speaks he enters the surgery, and Kate turns and walks slowly upstairs, her tweet eyes heavy with unshed tears. She looks at her hands, those hands that she often gazes at so morbidly and the teardrops fall upon them as she thuika of how useless she is to her husband. Kate I" It is William's voice calling her, so Kate quickly Aries her tears and hastens to him. Yes, William." You had better come here and try if you can help me. I can't find Rose anywhere," he concludes in a voice of suppressed irritation. Kate says nothing but follows her husband into the e-urg ry. On a bench lite a good looking young peasant woman, an agonised expression on her face, as she £ .azes fondly at a pretty little blue-eyed girl of about two years old, which she holds m her lap. The child is wailiug piteously, aud Kate iayis Poor little thing I What has happened to her ?" She waa playin' on th' roid, ma am,' replies the mother,44 wid th' other chil .hre, whin a cart that was passin' knocked her down, an' th' wheels wint over her two legs."

Shure, isn't Docthor Frinch goin, t, make yeh well agin, acushla I" Kate sits in the place indic ted by her husba"li, and the wailing baby is pIa. jd on her lap. H r almost useless hands can hardly held the poor little thing as it twist* and turns its vigoiou* l.ttie boóy, whilst the mother covers her face with her &kron and goes out of the surgery, cryirg. "Wby, Mary Blake, what's rhe matter wrh you ?" The questioner in Rose Dogherty, who has ju t re- turned from the village, and has been told that her master haa been requirirg her in the surgery.

"Here you are, R<se I" exc aima William, looking up, and with something like a sense of relief in his voice, "just come here a n inute and holi this child, she is too numau g.able for TOUT mistress." •' Oh let me hold her, please, Wiltiiim p eads Katie. Indeed I can do so very well." No, dear, no," he says, decidedly, Rose can do so better than you, Katie. It is necessary that the child should be kept quite steady, and you are not able to hold her." Rose Dogherty takes the child upon her lap, and William seems to go through his work with more satisfaction. To hide the fc-ars, which IU rise to her e) ea. Kate haldly leaves tho i-urjfery.

"An' God spare yeh yer health ma'am an' the docthor too.

Kate smiles faintly. lhank you," she replies, for your good wishes, but you forget-you know I have uot got auy children." "Well, God's good, ma'am!" she ejaculates, an' God sind thim t' yeh.

Well, I hope your little girl will get all right," is all Kate says, as she turns into the drawing- room and sits down by the window. The drawing-room door is open and Kate pre- sently hears Mrs. Blake called to come and take her child.

THE OTHER WOMA.i'S BABY, When days pass with unvarying monotony, it ia amazing hnw very soon they mer^e into weeks and mcnths and years, and especially in remote COUlitry places, where one day telleth another, there is but little to remind humanity of the flight of Time. Births, marriages, and deaths, have taken place in due proportion in Kilmahon since the day whea Mary Blake's baby was run ever, and doctored in William French's surgery. Amongst the marriage# have been Emmy Bryanton's, who married an English clergyman, a letter from whom has just arrived for William French. Aiihoueh nearly five years have passed away, Katu French lo >ksjust at pretty as ever, upon this dark December morning as she sits at the fire awaiting her husband to come down to breakfas:. Her pretty bronze hair ripples away just as coquetd-hly as ever her dark blue merino gown sits creaselessly to her trim full figure, and in ht-;r yet crippled hands she holds the letter which has just arrived from George Emerson, her sister'a hisband.

"Why, it i* nothing to you how much George cares for Emmy, you are only conctrned with how much I care for you and I shouldn't mind laying a small bet, old woman, that I'm twice as to id of you as that mild English parcon is of Emmy." William's tenderness always overcomes Kate. The angry flash dies out of her sweet eyes and tutoring hcr arms around her husband's neck, l-h buries her now glowing face in his bosom and whispers— 4 Oh Willi ,Willie, I cannot help envying Emmy." "Poor Emmy!" says William tenderly holding his Lttle wife to him. "H"w do you know whether she is to be envied or not ? It is just as likely as not that the biby is an ugly little thing," he continues comfortingly, well knowing that the child is the object of Kate's envy. But it is her own, William, hsr very own, her own dear, sweet, little girl. no matter what other people may think of it, it must always be beautiful aud love-wor hy to her. Oh, William darling.

A gallant act was performed by a man named McGuire at a fire at Birmingham. A boy of 4, named Taylor, who was in the upper part of the pre- mises, was in imminent danger of being burnt to death, when McGuire climbed up to the window of the room, smashed the framework and the glass -in doing which he cut his hands and arms, and sustained other injuries—and entered the apartmert.

On a visit to the abode of the priest one day the conversation again tur.ed on the exploits of foimer days, but DOW I exacted on having a few of his own wonders as well as those of his ptedecessors I had often heard of things incredible being performed by wiznrds and witches. (lie of these called at a farm house in I enibroke.-h:re asking for a quantity of milk, &c. This being refused ?lu- bolted out exclaiming "you will not be able to churn that milk to-diy, nor give it to the pigs." The faimer and his wife were sceptics as to her cursing powers. But notwith- standing this the process of churning was omehllw or other carried on in vain. They turned and turned, but there was no sign of bu'ter. Their faith began to give way. And though they were more illt. ll;geut than then i eiehb> urs in general, yet they could hardly strip themselvtS (,f the suspicion that the w:tch was at woik; and during her intercourse with rhe sources of tate all their labour would prove in vain They looked into the churn, but there was no sign of butter. One of the servants went out to feed the pigs, but the first sight she had was to ste them all standing on their heads with their tails up FLe farmer's heart failed him, and afier a serious family consultation, it was hg ted to sendforthewirchto w-ttid i liW the cnise a her own price. This she did, but even to this day the farmer's family would not on any account offend the poor old sharper of tin Cefn. She never professed to be able to dll anything, but when anyone spoke to her on the subject, she would 5ay, innocently enough, that she generally obtained her wish whatever it was. When I related this to the priest of FfYQon Elian, he heartily laughed. I th ught he was Uughing at the credulity of the people of Pembrokeshire, but it was Dot so. lie did it to scorn the idea of such a paltry effort as the one I related. They know nothing," he said, of the art." This formed a kind ol introdu tion to the revelations of this day's visit, and he com- menced with the story of the QUARRELSOME HUSBAND. tJDe dav" said he, "a woman came to tEe well, suffering from a load of grievances, the most important of which was a very dissatisfied, quarrelsome, husband. I could see that her tot,gue played exceedingly well; and if that of her husband was similarly hung, it was no wonder that many an unhappy day was spent at their home. She made a hum statement of her grievance, the burden of which was that her husband was always finding fault with her, and always quarrelling. She wanted to consign his name to the well. She did not wish to inflict upon him any curse. All she wanted was to change his disposition. (an this be done ?' said she. Done, why not! was the immediate reply. Ffynon Elian has never tailed yet.' During the conversation, I could easily see that whatever might be the temper of her husband, it would require the patience of Job to give up with this." After listening to the doleful tale of the woman, the priest retired for a short time, apparently to consult with the unseen. When he returned, he took his visitor out to the well where he went through the performance usualty exercised on such occasions. After this he procured a bottle rnd filled it with water from the well, and gave her some to drink. The chief instructions were, that as soon as her husband showed any signs of quarrelling, she was to take a mouthful of the consecrated water of Ffynon Elian, and not to swallow it on any account, but to keep it in her mouth until the whole quarrel was over. If she happened to swallow it, then it would lose all its virtue. Therefore she was to be on her oath to keep her mouth full till her husband would cool down. At first this was an exceedingly difficult ta:-k. ben a cross woid came from him her ttmper was boiling up. But no sooner would she attempt to utter a word th»n the w ier would be wal.owed. then all tSe direc- tions of ist hlia.i would be ineffectual. Hard as it was, she made an extra effort tocatryouttheprtscriptton. To her surprise tier husband appeared to soften down in a few days. Even on the first day his words were not so sharp as usual, nor d:d he continue but a short time in his excited slate. Thus it continued for some tin e, the quarrelling was all on one side—none whatever on the other. And he seemed to ge tiied of making all the noise h.mself. The water lasttd fur eight or ten days, then to her gne, the bottle became empty, and Indeed she fuulld the very first day after using all the water that there was a great dagger for things to go back to the old plan. She therefore hastened to Ffyuou Elian to renew the supply This being done the same good effects followed as before- Tile third time she paid a visit to the priest sh e wa> instruct d to pour lI. portion of the contents of ti.e bottle <o the wt 11 in her own gardi n at d in future to use that wnter rather than cotne so far as Hynon El an. rhis was done, and the happy effects weie such as to chiitige the whole circumstances of the family. Instead of being always quartelhng, they became kind and loving. Formerly, if one said she had seen a rabbit, the other would swear it was the fat if one thought she h..d seen a bee, the uther WIIU d -wear it vrm a wasp, and they would H.W,y- finish oil o< X d-jor to blows.

THE SlOLKN FLOUR. It was the practice in former days, for the labouring class to buy wheat and take it to the mill to be ground. Several parties would sometimes join to go to the mill together. Two women from Colwyn, who were friendly neighbours, took a peck each to tLe mill. The witt at w; s puichas d by both at the same tiinn aod iit the same tr e Aiitj the two women went together to> the mill to have it ground. Duri, g the process of grindit.g the peck of wheat belonging to 1 lhn Llughes was less by far tlun the o',her. Dow is this ?"stHd.tl)emiiler,there is more fluur iu this bag til uu that. And so it WM. ] t H lie following day thwy were bak:iig the bread t ge> he. Ii ti.e same oven. 'hit wh n a w s h.uiid -h .t din had fi e bnv s an the oilier only three, the parties became suspi. ijus, one in-inuaieu that the miller had done some foul play, and the other was x almost inclined to entertain the same opinion. The miller, however, had hitherto borne an exceptionally good character. His reputation for honesty and trustworthiness was known all over the neighbourhood. It would be difficult to fix upon him as the guilty party. Few wtuld believe it. Ai a; y Lloyd suggested that St. Elian should j he ct nsulted on the matter De had the reputation of finding out any secret where there had been some foul play. A purse had been stolen from B-, but by means of the well the purse and its contents ad been restored to the owner. One of the cattle at N- had been seriously injured, bi t the perpetrator of the deed had been visited by sore affliction. This was well known both to Mary Lloyd and Ellen Hughes. The latter, however, was rather reluctant to ti1 ke proceedings in this direction, and said that she would rather be in the loss of the flour than inflicting an injury on any one. Mie was entreated to cime, and she consented, never dreaming that things would turn out as they did. Ellen Hughes was afraid of the priest of Ffynon Elian, but Mary Lloyd was not. She did not believe in the conjuring power of the priest. Both went up together, and laid the case bl f Ire the priest. As usual he went through his ceremony at the well, and after this returned to a small backroom whete he consulted his conjuring books I i ah .ut fifti en minutes he came out to ask 0:ie questions of the women, and sec.etiy to take a survey of then physiognomy, lie w is an expert at this, tie then took his b oA in their p esence, and pr lessed to read, not forgetting, however, his survey of their eyes, &c., knowing that the face will often betia. the heart. After turning one page after another, till he came to a period, he pronounced the sentence over the guilty, which was to the effect that the person who had taken the flour would be unable- to move a limb in twenty minutes tune. And the importance assumed in pronouncing the sentence left no doubt in their minds as to the certainty of the results to follow. The priest then left the parties, and retired as before to his chamber, professing to have a very close communion w,th the powers of the air and the rulers of fate. The time drawing nigh, he came to the parties again. By this time they felt themselves on dangerous ground, and he, seeing his way clepr, uttered secretly the words, "The curse is now in operation. The thief will never move again." One of the females, Mary Lloyd, burst out in tears crying out for mercy. The priest then said to her, The book informs me that you are the thief." But she could not utter a word. Ellen Hughes nuw interfered, and began to blame her partner, not for the theft as much as fjr enticing her there, saying that she had no desire herseif to come. Well, well, go home/' said the priest. Yes, come home," said Ellen, You had no business to bring me here" 1 cannot move, said Alary Lloyd. Why did you draw me here, when you knew the state of things," said the other. I never believed he could do anything to me," said Alary. Disbelieve now then," said Saint fclian. At this juncture Ellen was frightened, and implored the priest to withdraw the cmse. This was done on condition that the theft was to be kept a perfect secret, and -he priest be remunerated for his labour. After going through the same process as before, Mary Lloyd was recovered, and she raised from her seat and walked home. (To be continued).

As they came up on the car from the Central Depdt they were talking abeut some elopement case, and a fox-eyed old man on the rear platform with a thin satchel at hia feet did his beat to catch every word, and seemed considerably excited.

Why did you follow- me and ask those questions ?" "Prompted by sudden impulse," was the cool reply. "Did you have one. too?" I'll prompt you with my boot, you old skulk 1" shouted the indignant citizen, as he prepared for action.
