Dorothy’s glove was off in a moment, and she slipped the diamond ring from her finger, and moved shyly lo place it in Clive’s hand. She feared it seemtid an ungiacions thing lo d o ; but she and Donald had often disensscd the matter to-geiiier, and Donald was very emphatic iu his decision th.U they coufd not be under so great an obligation lo a stranger as the receiving the ring back for nolliiiig would place them; .ind ihat, as he Tiad declined the money, their only alternstive was to keep the ring in charge for him until, through the jeweller or oUierwise, they .should succeed in hearing from him again. Meantime Dorothy always wore the ring, with perhaps an added interest from the little romance connected with it. Nevertheless she agreed with Donald as to what would be tUeir duly in llie matter, and held I nut now in her lille brown hand for Clive’s acceptance, saying as she did so :— “You must not think tliat we do not value your generous kindness, but indeed w<; cannot kt>cp the ring.” The words were said eo gently and there was such a kindly, tle-precating look in tlie gr.iy eyes that Clive could not be ollonded. lie took it quietly from her, saying as he did so:— “I t is a groat disappomtmcnt lo me lo have to receive it. I had hoped that little affair had been happily arranged, and I have no uae wLatoverfor the ring, which ^ must be so valuable't^ jjron. How* ever, I will submit to taking charge of it on one condition,’^ he added, more lightly, “n am e l y , y o n and your brother will ^Ilow me the privilege of your fn ^ s h ip and of introducing you t<^orrow to my aunt and cousins. irotj^r and ‘Clive walked back with then to* their mpdest lodging over a baker shop, at the top of a high street, and commanding a lovely view of palm trees, blue sea and distant rosy hills. Dorothy expatiated on the wonderful kindness they had experienced on till liands linee they had come abroad. “It is your old story of that day in the train,” said ClivQ, with a kindling face as he bid tlem goodbye; “ :>at I think now, as then that it i> yonr own pocket-snnshine that m: kes the world seem so bright to you.” And lilting his hat deferentially the young man walked a\fay. - At the table d^hole that evening his cousins were delighted with his altered maaner; he was^he very life of the party, and d^cribed in such lively colors the beauty of the views from the old town, that they and his aunt were all eagerness to visit it on the morrow. “And, by the way,” he added, with assumed carelessness, “some recent' acquaintances of mine are lodging up there, a brother and sister, travelling for the brother’s health. I should be glad, aunt, if you would call on them when we are up there, and. ask them to join ns in any excursions we may make.” “Certainly, my dear Clive. What is thcfiJafiib did yon say’’’-inquired the lady innocently. Poor Clive, what an awkward position for him ! Ilis aunt and cousins raised their eyes expectantly, and to their extreme surprise, observed an unmistakable blush on their self-contained relative’s face. “Upon my word, I haven’t a notion !” exclaimed Clivo at last, laughing in spite of his self-consciousness. ‘‘To tell the truth, met the young lady travelling in England and we had a little conversation together and cemented our acquaintance when we met just now in that region of the palm trees. Her brother is in a decline, I fear, a gentlemanly, talented young fellow', and their father is dead, and their stepmother has children of her own, so these two are everything to each other— quite a pattern brother and sister,” he ended, with a forced attempt at lightncs.». “You seem lo know a, great deal about them for a mere casual acquaintance,” said pert Miss Sibyl, looking mischievously ialo her cousin’s perturbed face. “Considering I don’t even know their surname, I can’t be said to have made much progress as yet,” replied Clive, quietly; ‘-but I hope our friendship will ripen speedily now,” And with that he left the ladies and retired to enjoy his day dreams under the starlit skies, with the aid of a cigarette. Mrs Fenton was not at all sure that she cared to cultivate the ac quaintance of this unknown brother and sister, but she never thwarted Clive; and accordingly, on the very next morning, a pilgrimage was made to the baker’s shop in the old town, and Clive introduced his relatives to his unknown friends. Dorothy’s happy ease and charm of manner came to iiis rescue at the awkward moment of introduction. “How vcrj', very kind of you lo come and seek us out,” she said, as Mrs. Fenton made rather a stately bo\v in response to Clive’s introduction of, “This is my aunt, Mrs. Fenion. .Allow me introduce her lo you. Miss----- ” “My name is Dorothy Dunford,” the girl went on, scltiag chairs by ihc pretty window for her visitors,” “and my Donald entered just then, looking very refined and very fragile, with sharpened delicate features anc lustrous dark eyes. The lady’s in terest in him was aronsed at once. She had lost her own son at newly the same age, and she could hardly keep the tears out of her eyes as she hastened toward the invalic ao^-took feta wastctl-hand in her own. From that moment the thing was done. The two families were daily togethei, and not only was the slay at Bordighera prolonged in order that it might be so, bat Mrs. Fenton persuaded Dorothy to join their party in travelling still further south, pointing ont the advantage to her brother of constant change and easy travelling, which would be better secured to him as one of their party. Dorothy could not but accept, with tears of gratitude, when, in answ'er to her protest of lack of means,. Mrs. Fenton begged them to be her guest for the time, urging as her plea the interest she felt in Donald as recalling her own lost son. And so a time of enjoyment be yond the wildest of her day dreams came to pass for quiet, happy Dorothy. They went as far south as Florence, then up to Venice, and thence to the Italian lakes, where they lingered till the time for the Fentons’ return to England drew near. JJothibg was wanting to Dorothy’s content. Donald daily imp-proved, and his spirits, as well as his health, revived among such kind and congenial friends, for he was petted and made much of on all hands, and ho began lo talk of returhlng lo his work with quite a new hope for the future. Then the joyous light-heartedncss of Sibyl and Flora was very catching; and Dorothy felt a child oncc more, as, throwing off all her cares, she joined in their merry fun. Mrs. Fenton’s presence, too, gave a feeling of propriety lo it ail, which was an important item to demure little Dorothy’s satisfaction. But, above all, ever at hand lo point ont fresh beauties,-to describe and explam works of art, to suggest historical associations, to throw, in short, the charm of a cultivated intellect and of a refined taste over everything, was Clive himself. He said not word of love to Dorothy at the ont-set. He was more than content to see all her faculties waken up m her new surroundings, to.meet the glad look cf welcome in her eyes whenever he entered the room, to w’atch her ready response to the thoughts he treasured up for her. : )ay by day his only endeavor was to please and interest her, and almost unconsciously, happy ideas seemed to flow into his mJnJ ant )our themselves forth to her. He gave her of his best and there was great deal of value stored np in his cultivated intellect and thought ful mind. And in turn she not only drew him out, as he had never been drawn out before—till not only his aunt and cousins, but he himse also, was surprised at this revelation of his unsuspected powers-but her fresh keen interest threw new charm into everything, till brother Donald will be here directly and will be cheered by fresh English faces.” Clive was often carried beyond himself and could hardly maintain his usual calm demeanor. I t was happy idyllic sort of time, a bright spot, always radiant in the memory of two at least of the party. I t was the last day of their sojourn together on the banks of Como, and Clive had planned a row on the lake for the afternoon. But the wind blew a little fresh and Donald feared to venture. Mrs. Fenton declared she could not leave her invcalid on this last day, and Flora and Sibyl decided to remain with her. “Won’t you have pity on me. Miss Dorothy ?” asked Clive, looking very wobegonc. “Shall I go?” asked the girl, turning to Mrs. Fenton with an eager face. “By all means, my dear. Clive must not be cheated of his rofir because the girls are lazy, and I cannot tear myself away from our dear invalid,” replied Mrs. Fenton. So Dorothy went off with a light heart to don her hat and jacket, too happy in the present to be sad about the parting on the morrow. Clive, however, was nnnsnally grave and preoccupied as he rowed tfa« ligbt boat ont into the rippled lake. At last he lay on bis oars and they drifted quietly along, still in silence, for his gravity rather awed Dorothy; and, though she longed to break the stillness, she hardly knew how. The remark she made at last was not apropos of anything in particular, unless, glancing at her own han^ which was trailing in the sparkling water, suggested it. “You never wear your ring?” she said, looking np at him suddenly. “N o ; I am keeping it for my wife,” he answered laconically, and there was silence again. “For his wife!” Somehow the idea jarred upon Dorothy. Of course he would marry; but who would be good enough lor him ? Not Flora or Sibyl, kind and bright as they were. I t must be somebody very different, very clever and be'autiful and good, and, above all, very devoted to him, who conld be worthy of such high honor. So thought the demure little maiden as ehe lay quietly back in the boat, giving no sigii of the feeling stirred within her. Clive, glancing at her, thought to himself, “She cannot care forme; she did not even start or blush when spoke of my wife ; it is nothing to her whom I marry.” Perhaps the impending gloom of the parting on tlTe morrow had de- )rcssed him nnduly; at all events it was in a very dolorous voice that he spoke again. “But it is nonsense to speak of my wife; I am never likely to marry, I have lived a lonely life heretofore— no doubt I can live it again, and it will come to an end some day, as far as this world is concerned.” Dorothy looked np now with an expression of startled wonder in the gray eyes. “Something has vexed yon ?” she said, in a tone of most gentle sympathy. “Cannot I help you ? There is nothing I should like so well.” Clive’s countenance brightenei at oncc. “Yes,” he s ^ , “yon can—if-yon will—you and you only. Yon can help me to a wife.” “I ! Can I do that?” asked the girl ill most unfeigned surprise. “But I know no one ^good enough for you. Yon ought to have some one so wise and beautiful and good; I cannot tell where to find her for you.” Clive could not contain himself longer; he must risk his all on the venture now, come what might “O, Dorothy,” he said, leaning forward and looking eagerly for his answer into her trnthtelling eyes, “do you not know that it is yon want, your own sweet sell and nobody else; and that if you say me nay I shall remain a lonely bachelor to the end of my days, with only the bright memory of the past few weeks to cheer my solitude ?” The color mounted into Dorothy’s checks now in a brilliant fashion, as sho said, in a voice so ow that he had to lean nearer to catch the precions words— lighten it to the end. The parting had not to be gon^ through on the morrow, after alk Instead the whole party travelled back to Nice together, and there in due course a qniet wedding took place. And when at last Mrs. Fenton and her girls returned home it was without thehr escort But Mrs. Fenton’s motherly heart was comforted by the knowledge that she had left Donald now in the best of. hands, and that, with Clive, as well as Dorothy to attend to l»in», he would want for nothing that was good. End. “I am not worthy of you, but I cannot say you nay.” And then, before she could look up, her left hand was lifted out of the water, where it had been lying all the time, and the diamond ring was slipped on the fourth finger, and Dorothy’s fate was sealed. We will not intrude further on their happiness as they drifted abont on the glittering lake till the sun sank in the west. Bnt when at last Dorothy set foot on terra firma again she felt as if she had passed through a whole lifetime of iss, as if the bright beams of the setting snn had thrown a over her path in life which Thb OmuBi Co.
