What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

He did not know yet how far this estrangement had been intentional on ife - would give her the benefit of the doubt. \I too, have fallen on prosperous times. Now, what are you going to do? Shall I see you home? Or shall I call on you to -morrow, when you will be quieter and calmer? Or will you come and look . at my little place now?\ Then, for the first time, Pauline raised her bead; and again Jack saw the ex- pression of the carved tigers heads as she answered her husband. \I will not accompany you anywhere; I would sooner kill myself—for I hate you!\ . The 'shocked clergyman would have spoken; but Telling stopped him cour- teously but .firmly. \You must pardon me; but this is my affair, as you must acknowledge, and mine only.\ Then turning to the raging acumen, he .went on: \In those circum- stances further diecultaion would be use- less;\ and only .Jack, who was watch- ing him closely, guessed what wonderful self-control he was exerting to keep him- self front exposing and upbraiding the se -omen -to whom - he spoke. \Vii111 - gli - e - ' you the addreell of my solicitor, and all future communications meet be made through him.\ He wrote the address on a leaf of his pocketbook, tore it out, and placed it on the table beside her. \And now, Mrs. Pelting, may I see you to your cab?\ She ruse and drew herself up defiantly, and then swept from the vestry; and Pelling followed her in polite attend- ance. He returned In a few seconds. \And now, Mr. Dornton,\ he said, \if you win favor me with your company, I shill be . ;led . to give and receive explana- Haus.\ After wishing the clergyman \Good morning,\ the two men jumbed into the cab which brought Pelling from the sta- tion, and drove to a hotel. They talked OD indifferent subjects until they were in possession of a private room, and the waiter had finally retired, after receiv- ing ordere for luncheon in half an hour. Then Pelling turned to Jack and be- gan: \It seem,' to me that you and I are fated to cross each other's paths, Mr. Dornton. I have heard you spoken of pretty often lately by a Mr. Mallett, • particular friend of mine.\ \Indeed?\ said Jack, uncomfortably, trnt relishing this sudden and intentional Introduetion 'of the Mellitus' name; for. .6... ..•••• • nn ttou enti teirn now - mere, Jack felt leas proud than ever of his own share in the rupture with Ethel. He thought, too, that Mr. Pell' tug would not have heard much to his credit from that source. \I see what you are thinking,\ Fell- ing observed; \but you are wrong. Mr. Mallett has spoken of you to me only as a promising man in your profession. The other nuttier that is in your mind I took the liberty of finding oat for my- self. Now, I have a proposition to make to you.\ things quietly, you would have given a good deal never to have seen her at all, and wished you had beh.$$d differently to Miss Mallett. , Jack jumped tip, his f eve beaming, and wrung Pelliug'e ha \I could not say it m self. but that Is really just how It has been in 11 II1e. 1 am not good at expressing my feelings; hot I know you are behaving very well to me—much better titan I deserve—and I thank you. And now what do you wish me to do?\ \Go right away for a few months. Write to we now and again, and I will take care that Miss Mailett hears what- ever is likely to he of use to you. Give her time to forget the indignity you have put on her and her love. I shall he on hand In the character of • benevolent patriarch, and the moment I see signa favorable to our plot I will bring about a meeting. The rest will lie with your- self.\ \How can I thank you?\ \You owe me no thanks. Relieve your mind on that point. What I am doing I do out of my sincere wish for Miss Mallett's happiness. If you really think your owe me anything pay it inekindnette to your wife after „you are married. Here _11 luncheon- Ars_ will talk by and...by of your imniedlatet plans.\ • • • • • • • When they had finished luncheon, and Jack had left, Pelting laid down on the hard horsehair sofa, with his hands under his head, gaming steadfastly at the ceil- ing; and it was not until the evening, when the waiter came to light the gas, that he was roused from his deep rev- erie. He then pulled himself together, called for his bill, and having settled it, went out into the wretched night. When Pauline left her husband at the church door she knew that her schem- lug bad been futile, and that she could never agi6 show it., laos M ford; but it was not that which caused her the agony of mind she was suffer- ing. She had lost Jaek. The one pure, un- selfish cup of joy she had longed to taste had been snatched from her lips at the moment of raising.' She was stunned with despair. She paced up and down the platform at Charing Cross station, watching for Babette and concocting plans for ob- taining what ready money she could be fore the grand denouement came. She knew her jewels must he worth at least five thousand pounds, and, though some of them were heirlooms, and others had been bought with money obtained by her dishonesty, ehe would not scruple to ap- ply mem to ner personal use. Then she would draw at once two thotteand from her bankers. She would go and do this personally lest they might scruple to pay so large • stun on a check, And so she laid her miserable plane, refusing to listen for one moment to the prompting of her better nature, which would even now suggest her return to the husband whose only sin had been his poverty. CHAPTER XXII. Pelliug paused and looked attentively at the young man. Ile knew there was mit much generosity 'in giving Ethel up, as he could not merry her himself dur- ing the lifetime of his wife, and, hay- ing plenty of true manliness, he did not mean to niake any shoe Of the misers - tip pain that was gnawing at his heart: but he felt he ehould like to know what sort of man this was whose path lie intended to smooth for him as far as lay In his power; and, while he thought of this, the themory of Ethel's face. pained and sorrowful as he saw it when she made to him her confession of love for this Dornton came suddenly before him, Red he knew that the greatest kindnese h• eould de her would be to restore her - lover. Proomitly his -mid, abruptly: \You have netirly broken Ethel's heart.\ , Jack flushed furiously, and half roe* from his chair. Pelting motioned to him to keep calm. \1 asked you to be patient with roe,\ lie reminded Jack. \My motive should exenee me to you. The pith of the whole matter is this—was the engagement be- tween you and Ethel broken off in con - ',equate, of your infatuation for my wife, or had you ceased to care for her before you met Pauline? As man to nian, I ask you for a truthful answer.\ \1 can't for the life of me understand by what right,\ began Jack, hotly. \For heaven's sake, don't waste time in splitting straws when an much is at Make!\ Pelting said, Impetuously. \Yea can't understand my right to interfere? I will explain. I love Ethel Mallett as I never loved, never shall love, never be- lieved it possible to love; sod until this morning 'I had the hope of making her my wife wane de..., when she had had time te forget you. I think my love for her gives me the right to do what Iran to secure her happiness; and.1 believe her happiness rests with you. I can't have her myself, or I do not think I could be unselfish eiough to give her op. I might, but I don't think it. Now to re- turn to our point—was your infatuation for my wife the only cans* of the es- trangement between you two?\ Jack was greatly impreameti, is he un- derstood now why Polling spoke with so much effort, and he felt touched by his devotion. Added to this wee the feel- ing of shame that had oppressed him ever since his talk with Lord Sommers. .Com•—you needn't mind confessing your weakness to -me.\ Pelliog went on, encouragingly. \Bless you,, man, I know hove Pauline can twist any man round her finger if she likes to try I sup- pose' she was smitten with yam and spread her nets to snare you, end yon. am oasis( the same. found yourself enamored of aor without knowing how it happened.

Notwithstanding all Pilling's efforts, the story soon got into the newspapers, and, It being the dull season, was 'wised upon with avidity by the gossip puriey- ors. It was \dished\ and \redished\ day after day, with numteseless.distor- hone, exaggerations and additions. One society journal had it that the beautiful Miss M— of M— Park, in Exbridge- shire, had attempted to poison her hue - hand, to whom she had been secretly married only a month or two, in order to become the wife of a celebrated R. A., with whom she had fallen deeply In love; while another declared that the husband ',repented himself at the altar with pie tole and, dragging hie would -he sucees- 'tor outside the sacred edifice, insisted upon • duel there and then, Allti wound- ed him dangerously in the shoulder, end that the unfortunate man now lay in a most critical condition, while the hus- band had carried off his reluctant bride, a veritable prisoner, on board his yacht, for • twelvemonth's cruise in the Pa- cific. At last Felling, annoyed beyond meas- ure at these absurd stories, decided to ley bare the truth. With the assistance of his lawyer, he drew up a entwine state- ment of the real facts, giving his even and Pauline's name in frill, but suppress- ing Jack's. He carefully conveyed the idea that Pauline believed him to he dead, and gave the circumstance to her change of name as sofficient to account for his sot ha•1ng disco•pred her exist- ence since his return from Africa. This he sent to two of the daily newspapers. and, thus divested of all mystery, the story inet Its charm, end no longer af- forded any interest. Pelting 'ant one of these newspapers, with Ms own letter specially distinguish- ed. to Ethel by post, and the next morn- ing he celled in Buckingham Street to make matters clearer Ethers frank candor once more over- came the difficulties of the situation; she stood at the top of the stairs with her hands outstretched and her face bright with friendly intermit. \I have been longing to see yon,\ she began, warmly, as they entered the room; \w• have both so much that is wonder- ful to tell each other!\ She looked at him stesdfastly as he stood in the light from the window, and what she saw in his face quickened her pulse with a sudden pity, but she would not give way to the impulse that urged her to console MM. She went on, a lit- tle hurriedly at first: \I can Mee that your pleasant news la in some way mixed up with painful thoughts; so, as mine le altogether pleas- ant. I shall speak first.

Pelliug did not speak, and she felt a little anxious. She had 4iintentionally stumbled upon the sub- ject; but she knew it could not be avoided between them, so she screwed up her courage and went on: \Perhaps I should not say what I am going to say; but no real harm can come from straightforwardnes. We have been such good friends in the past that we need not stay to pick and choose our sortie to each other, need we? 1 want to congratulate yes on the recovery of your wife; but there is something In your face that cheeks me • Will you tell me all about it?\ \I can't tell you all about it.\ he anti. \I only know that my wife refused to have anything to do 'with me, and that she Ls now In Paris.\ \If I were you I should go to Paris, too.\ \1 'tutelaries I ought—In fact, I know 1 ought—and I have tried to make up my mind to go; hut I eannot.\ For an instant he dropped his head upon his hand, and a great rush of pity set Ethel's . heart beating oddly. He pulled himself together with an impa- tient exclamation. \What a bore you must think, me!\ ho said,' Welly. nLet us impute sub- ject. If I ever find you can help me In any way, I will come so you at once. As things are now, the less said the better. And so you are to possess the wealth which Pauline has forfeited?

He has loved you all through his mad folly. He told me so himself on the very day of the wedding, before he could have known anything of the change in your worldly affairs; so, when you think of him in the future, you must not believe he was governed by mere& .nary 'considerations.\ \Thank you for your kind defense of him,\ she responded, rising as her fath- er entered the room. \1 will remetnber to do as you say:\ and she turned gayly to the door. \And now let me intro- duce you to Sir Geoffrey M•Iling of m•inngtord Park.\ • • • • • • • A few weeks later Ethel Arid her father were settled at Mallingford, All the necessary legal formalities had been gone through, and the county families had called upon Sir Geoffrey and his Meighter. Lord Summers had suggest- ed that the baronet should have A public reception; but Sir -Geoffrey had sternly and emphaticaRy opposed any such dem- onstration. So father and daughter had come down and been met at the rillway station by the family carriage, aud had BODO quietly to their respective rooms. after shaking hands with a few of the old servants whom Sir Geoffrey retnembered in his brother's time, and had eaten their first dinner at Mallingford Its if they had but just returned from a short visit.

Vest Arming of Pear Children a:aor- tas Oct Their Unliiippy Lives. The factory wants the child. There is little to suggest the Magic Piper in its whistle, yet the summons brings the children scurrying down the bro- ken stairs of poverty and want, and the factory doors close upou them by tens of thousands, leaving their child- hood outside. The factory wants the child and will pay for him; the child, and often his parents, can see no value In a birthright as balanced against a little handful of silver; only the state and the disintereited public are left to care and protest. Perhaps the present attitude of tem- pered humanity, which still allows children of thirteen to work all night and keeps boye and girls of nine from ten to fourten hours at the spindles for wages ranging from ten to twenty cents, will seem as incomprehensible, one hundred years hence, as the past feeding of \workhouse brats\ to the factorieedoes to us. But the new measure of what i.e humane cannot be come established unless we know clearly what Is happening and how and where the children are at work. Knowing, we must care.
