"TWO MEN FROM KIMBERLEY," i By H. BARTON BAKLK, Author of "Robert Miner, Anarchist," "Stafford,, a Romance," Ac. j —————— i PART THE SECOND. [ CHAPTER 11-Continued. Camaraderie. As she sat at her writing-table, the ruddy flame of the fire flickering over her flushed cheeks, Denver thought that he had never seen such another charming piece of femininity. She had that creamy complexion most frequently associated with that peachy bloom, though there was only a soupcon of it in her face, which is distinctive of West of England girls; an abundance of bright fair hair rippled about her low broad forehead and around her neck; the luminous grey eyes were alternately dreamy and vivacious, and were always the open windows of a beautiful soul in which guile and deceit had no abiding place; there was latent passion in them, too, that some day would be kindled by the torch of love; the full ripe lips which hungered a man to kiss, and were so irre- sistably fascinating when parted in a smile, j were a very couch for Eros to reposft upon. The dainty silk blouse and the plain grey skirt well set off the slender, graceful figure, which was rather above than below the middle height. Denver was so wrapped in contemplation of this charming picture that it was with difficulty he could concentrate his attention on the reading, dramatic as it was. The sketch was a short story, into which the impressions of the terrible neighbourhood that they had passed through together were vividly and artistically interwoven. It was realistic, but delicately handled, and with a freedom, dash, a concentration, seldom found in woman's work. Denver gave it unstinted praise. You could not deceive Lilian Vanstone; she had a way of looking into your eyes while you were speaking that would have confused the most accomplished humbug. Denver met the look without flinching, and her whole face beamed with pleasure. I am so glad to hear you praise it, for I am sure you mean what you say," she said simply. I do, most sincerely," he answered emphatically. When he made another call two days later, he found her fretting. My editor says," she cried, the story won't do at all; there's no blood and no sentiment in it, and the general reader wants both. Why,' he said, you make a mother ill-use her child; that won't do; the ruffianly father may knock both about as much as you please, but the mother must weep over it, and suffer every torture for it, and die for it. You must not be too realistic except when you are describing a murder, and then you can't lay it on too thick. Our readers don't want truth and reality; they only want to cry and weep. Neither do they want what you call good writing; they rather resent it; they don't want anything above their own level.' Did you ever hear anything so disgusting?" It is the march of education," answered Denver laughing. "But the editor is quite right; it is too good, or not suitable, as he would phrase it, for his paper. You must try better-class publications. In the mean- time I think I can place the little story with my editor, and, if you will allow me, I will make two or three sketches for it." Lilian was delighted with the ideand this suggestion developed into a literary partner- ship that brought them constantly together. Their talks were chiefly shop," but Lilian, who was an enthusiast and a passionate lover of fine poetry, would often give full play to her rich imagination, stored with apt quotations and full of original ideas. Some- times she talked of Devonshire, of which she 1 was very fond, but Denver shrank from all allusions to his own painful past. Their association was one of pure camaraderie; they went together to theatres, concerts, picture galleries, sharing expenses like two male friends. To Denver this companionship and intimate commune with a sweet and sympathetic soul was salvation; it drew him away from the morbid introspec- tion which most probably would have led to suicide; it gave him something to live for, something to look forward to from day to day; it filled his mind with wholesome thoughts. and in her presence with sunsjiine. After a while he felt that Lilian Vanstone was a necessity of his existance, that the thought of losing her was appalling; yet he would have scouted indignantly the merest suggestion that he, a nameless outcast, without prospects, should think of any closer connec- tion, even were she inclined to it. No, he would sooner die by his own hand than involve the fate of this bright, trusting, beautiful woman in his own dark destiny. Thus he thought-before temptation assailed him. As to Miss Vanstone—she was never given to morbid self-analysis, nor even to self-examina- tion. Up to this time she had escaped the modern craze for mental chemistry; and she was too healthy-minded for sentimentality, though her soul was steeped in poetry, which is quite another thing. She had never met a man whom she liked so much as Herbert Denver; truly her experience of pleasant members of the male sex was very limited, but at this time she never dreamed of regard- ing him in any other light than that of a friend and a co-adjutor. They were like two people walking upon frozen water, quite unconscious that at every step they took the ice was thinner, and at the least shock would crack beneath their feet and plunge them into the deeps. CHAPTER III. I. By the Fireiight. It has been said in the previous chapter that Miss Vanstone occasionally talked about Devonshire life, and in these little revelations Denver took great interest. Her strange likeness to that other Lilian, which, if less in detail, was greater in general effect on closer acquaintance, extending as it did to tricks of speech and manner, such as are common in families, never ceased to haunt his mind, suggesting all kinds of strange and impossible theories to explain it. But there was nothing in her reminiscences that gave the least clue to the puzzle. There was evidently some dark shadow upon her home that had ultimately rendered it unbearable, but she never spoke of the nature of it. It is very curious," she remarked one evening, that I can never induce my auxit?. to talk about my father or mother; ehe? always evades the subject. She says I am very like my mother, but I have never seen a picture either of her or of my father. It is a great lack in your life never to have known father or mother, sister or brother, or even to be able to imagine what your parents were like, or what they did or what their tastes were. Those memories make up so much of your own person- ality, and without them there seems to be something wanted in your nature. Aunt say. they were both buried abroad, but she will not tell me where; as I am unable to rimi their graves, she IIQ". it cannot matter > > to me. Isn't it strange that she should be so reticent upon the subject that most relatives- are so fond of talking about?" "It is very extraordinary," answered Denver thoughtfully. It was between the lights of the winter 1 evening that this conversation took place. Miss Yanstone had been reading a story that she had just written, and Denver had been making some rough sketches for suggested illustrations. When it grew too dark for work they sat down, one on each side of the fire, in silence, for some time, gazing into the glowing coals, finding their pictures of the past and visions of the future, until Lilian, put her thoughts into words. Have you ever pressed your &unt about your parents?" inquired Denver after a pause. Perhaps not very closely," she replied with some hesitation, but you see there are difficulties in dealing with my aunt; that it to say, she is rather peculiar-" She stopped abruptly. I see," said Denver, disappointed by her sudden pause. Mine has been a very solitary life," she went on in the same dreary tone. I have grown up quite self-dependant; my aunt keeps no society, and books have been my chief friends. Of course, it is very good to say, My mind to me a kingdom is.' but woman is a gregarious animal, and original instincts will assert themselves over artificial training, and at times one feels a void thiLt. can be filled up only by the love of one's kind." I have felt all that you describe," responded Denver; how strange it is that our two lives should run, as it were, in parallel lines, that our past, atter allowing for difference of sex and accidentals, should be almost identical, and that we should meet so strangely. What of our future, I wonder?" She made no response, and alain. they; lapsed into fire-gazing silence. You have never toia. me anything about that other Lilian, my alter ego," Miss Van- stone said suddenly. You were lovers, of course?" The words came rather like a thought that insisted upon utterance than a direct question. I did love her, it was a boy's love, not reciprocated—it was all broken off before I went away to South Africa.; her father opposed it-perhaps on grounds I was ignorant of. She has utterly, irretrievably, passed out of my life—perhaps it was inevitable-perhaps it was all for the best." Miss Vanstone raised her eyes and looked at him; her face was in shadow, and he was intently staring at pictures in the fire, so that her observations was not noticed by him. Perhaps, until that moment, she had not formed any definite impression of Denver's personality. This will sound strangely improbable, as a woman's first dictum on a man under fifty regards his looks; but Miss Vanstone, while purely feminine in the teft sense of the word, showed none of the conventionalities of her sex, not from design, but because their absence was as natural in her as their presence is in other women. It struck her now that he was very hand- some, that he w^l altogether agreeable, and a sort of vaosurprise that the other Lilian shduld not have reciprocated his affection, flitted across her mind. Miss Vanstone's questions aroused certain reflections in Denver's mind, and it was upon these he was so intently meditating. She had been open as the day with him, while he had scarcely told her anything about himself. This was not right; he was on terms of the closest intimacy with this young lady, and she literally knew nothing about him. Perhaps he feared that if she heard the story; of his life she would not consider him a. desirable friend. But, after her questions that night, he felt that silence might be more fatal than confession. I will tell you my story," he said, after a pause. I ought to have told you it before." "I should like to hear it," she answered frankly. He related it much as it has been already given in these pages, but he could not bring- himself to touch upon what he had heard in the parlour of the Red Lion at Clodhurst. After all, it was mere gossip, and he began to doubt the truth of it. She listened with the deepest interest. So you see," he concluded, I am a. man without family, without even a name, and with very little prospect of ever discovering either. And now, Miss Yanstone, tell me truly, can you still associate—can you still call me -friend ?" He spoke the last words half seriously, half cynically. She opened her eyes very wide aa she answered, Why not-what difference can anything you have told make to me?" Some people would think it made a very, great difference," he answered bitterly. I should not like to know those people," she answered. Then, jumping up impulsively, she offered him her hand. Yes, what you have told me has made a difference—you have roused my deepest sympathies—we are faster friends than ever, mon bon camarade. "hough," she added, laughing, "I ought to be very indigmilat with you for not having such a very; mean opinion of me." (To be continued). ■ —— I
A TEACHER TAUGHT. Mr. Herman Merivale, in "Bar, Stage, and Platform," tells of an amusing encounter between Dr. Vaughan, for many years head- master at Harrow, and a small boy who carried off the honours of the occasion. A boy whoJname was Dodd was brought before the doctor charged with some dire scholast* offence. "What is your name?" asked the master, with due severity. "Dodd, sir," answered the trembling boy. "Dodd! Do you spell it with one d or with two?" "With three, sir," stammered the boy. The doctor pnt his head upon the desk, covered it with his hands a, moment, and then dismissed the dangerous criminal with a warning. "I could no more have punished that boy," he said afterwards, "than I could have flown. Nobody before ever gave me such a lesson in spel. ling!"
A WOMAN'S REASON. Never was heard a more remarkable excuse for a woman's petition for untying the con- nubial knot than that given by a lady in a New York court recently. "Your honour," she said, "will be doing me a very great favour in granting my petition. You see, when I married the defendant his bright red hair harmonised beautifully with the decora- tions of the house, but I have just had it re- papered and all the furniture upholstered, mostly in green, and now his red hair clashes dreadfully with everything. You can timagine the shock my sensitive system. receives every time I see his fiery geraninm- coloured curls hanging over a sea-green oouch or flattened up against a sea-green wall-paper. I gave him the chance of dyeing his hair, but he s-a.id he'd die before he'd dye, so there's nothing left but to legally get aoit of him I'
