[ C05CLCBKD. 1 44 Your plan ia pcrhapa as good a 0110 as can l?e devised under the circumstances, unless, Katie, you can go to him frankly and tell him nil about it Would'at that after all be the wisest way ?" 441 cannot, indeed I cannot, be will tret over it in time. I am sure," ahe said 4-You are not engaged for Thursday night, and have no objection to uiy appointment to meet Lim there 44 Oh! no, not the least in the world. I shall oiijoy it rather than otherwise ,* lut Kate are ycu quite sure you are not carrying this Utile too far ?" '?Oh, no, indeed. It is all in the fimily you knew So there is not the least danger cf scandal. Isn't it edd, thrugh, the idea of carrying on so animated and mysterous a enr respondence, with a person one sees at erery meal ?" 4> It is rather funny to be sure. But wind you don't get into trouble." 44 Oh, I've no fears. I 'm determined to give him a thorough lesson. I'll teach him the other side of the game of flirting We had arrived at Madame C 's door. and we parted But as I recalled Kate s words, and the expression of her f*tce, I was certain she was more perplexed than she choose to acknowledge " 44 Frank," said Kate, demurely, 41 it being Thursday evening. I'm g >ing around to B street, this evening Will you go with me, or shall 1 depend upon uncle for an escort?"' And she looked up smilingly. *4 I chould like to accompany you." Kate locked grave. For some reason or other, she and Frank had been growing better friends of late?moved, perhaps, by the knowl edge of bis perplexities, perhaps by another motive. She bad acted more naturally iu hid presence, and although he had shown no dis position to trifle with hor, a very frank and friendly feeling had grown up between th??m. But to-night Kate was conscious that her com pany would not bo agreeable to him. and, un reasonable as it was, she was a little jealous of 14 Clarabel." The evening was, it must be confessed, ra ther a dull one, for Frank, striving to seem at hie ease, was continually on the watch for ar rivals. and Kate, noticing his evident absent mindednesa, nearly lost her temper at the in ifficacyof all her atU-m; is to divert biia. To mc, the scene was one of unusual interest. Toward the middlo of the evening Ilarry Best Icy dropped in. Kate immediately bent ujx^n h'.ui all her powers of pleasing, and if the de sired to pii^uc Frank with jealousy, the could not have a more desirable ally. Harry was all attention, and for an hour they kept up a vigorous flirtation; (Hal, by the way, had gained some inkling of the j ?ke in a confi dential conversation with me) but it was nil in vain. Frank was constant to his ideal mis tress. At last, Kate more out of temper than she would havo been willing to acknowledge, rose to go. T! ere was no longer any hope of see ing Clarabel, so Frank was quite willir.g ^he took his arm in silence as they descended the steps, and for five minutes not a word was spoken by cither. Frank was first to break the silenco. 4-1 am afraid I was rather stupid to-night, cousin Kate " (She had assented to tho title at last ) 4* I don't know, indeed, I didn't mind," she sa'd, in a tone of mingled chagrin ::nd em barrassment. lie looked eearchingly at her, but she added more cheerfully after a moment's pause, 41 Tho truth i", Frank, I was so pleasantly entertained with Harry Bentlcy s witticirms. that I did'rt notice how you and Carrie wore getting on Isn't Harry a delightful conver sationist?" 44 Rather pleasant." Again a pause. 44 Kate, can you kcop a secret ? ' ho asked, abruptly. 441 think so. Why ?" Her voice trembled a little. 44 Because I am in trouble, and it seems to mefou can help me out of it. At any rate. 1 know you are a kind, good hearted girl, and will at least sympathize with me. ' Kate trembled. 41 What is the matter," she asked, in a tone of forced composure With an effort to begin his story, they walked slowly, and he finished before they reached the house 44 But how am I to aid you in bringing about a meeting with your recreant fair one? she asked 441 will tell you . One morning last week, I rose early to write a letter to her, and when I had finished it, having Lutincs* in Brooklyn, I went down town, crossed Fulton Ferry, and having transacted my business, deposited the letter in the office myself. It was still quite early, and as I stood wailing lor a South Fer ry stage, a young lady passed mo, and enter ing tho office received a letter, which, as she passed me coming out, I perceived was my own, directed to Clarabel. I started, (so did Kate; as you may imagine, and hurrying after her entered the Fulton Forry car ani determined upon tracing her, followed her into an up-town stage, and saw her alight at the door of Madam C 'a school." She wis closely veiled, and I could not gain a very distinct view cf her features, but she was petite in figure, and I should think light com p exioned and pretty. Is there such a young lady at the school who comes from Brooklyn? ' Kate had been fearful as she listened to the narrative, lest she might bo obligod either to make a full cjafeasson or to implicate her friend, which latter she could not in con science do; but now she saw a loop-hole for escape. 41 There is one young lady from Brooklyn in school," she replied, 44 and only one, and she is dark complexioned and not at all pretty, and is, morever, and unusually ditfreet per son and an intimute friend of mine I know her so well that I cau at once assure you that she ia not your correspondent I do not be lieve she would engage in any such venture some game, and if she had, I am sure she would have told me, for we are confidants." 41 Are you very sure she would have told you!" 4- Positively certain ; and beside, although she is a good-hearted, affectionate creature, I do not think her at all capable of writing as beautiful letters as you say Clarabel's are " 44 Then she must be a messenger for some one else." ?* Perhaps so But I am sure it would be fruitless to attempt to gain any information from her if ahe is pledged to secrecy, nur would I wish to ask it of her." 41 Of course I would not have you. But, dear Kate, will you not strive, in some way, to ferret out this mystery for me ? I shall never bo myself again until it ia explained." In a faltering, unsteady voice she assured him of her willingness to oblige him and they separated CHAPTER ? Kate her intention of writing no more letters, and as day after day passed 1 bringing with it no missive from Clnrabel, 1 Frank grew more and more uneasy. He went I to Kato with all his troubles now ; it recmcd 1 to comfort him to talk the matter over; an J ? though I can't say but ahe enjoyed hia coufi- 1 dcnco very much, ahe wasu't, as may be im agined, the coolest counsellor. Day by day 4 she too grew palo and worried, and he thought it was all on his account, and blest her for her generous devotion. If things had gone in this way much longer i with no news froua Clarabel, coldly and capri- i cioubly expressed though It sometimes was, I cannot say how soon the denouement might i have occurred. As it wu, it waa hastened by < one of thoee little, umexpecUd, unaccountable 1 ? ? H Y. . .ii . c, ? . mishaps which mcb planned bj very imps of mischief, but which often prove how pleasant consequence* may be extracted frtm the most vexatious circumstances Frank, notwithstanding Kate's advice to the contrary, still wrote occasional letters, lie seldom ?L?wed them to her, however, and as since .-he had lesrned how nearly her faithful messenger bad been exposed, she no longer dared to trust her, she usually went for them herself; for heartily sick and tired a/ she pro fessed herself of the whole affair, she bad still c strange interest in the letters Usually she went after school, but it so hap pened that upon one occasion, having an af ternoon engagement which would prevent her iroirg at the accustomed hour, she went soon utter breakfast bhe was a rapid walker, and disliked stage riding, so though the clouds threatened n?m, fhe eschewed the popular vehicle and kept on her way down town, her thoughts busy with the net of ]>erplexmg circumstances whieh surrounded her- For the fiftieth time she wondered how it was all to end, and strove to find some loop-hole for escape, but for the fif tit-tb time ahe was battled, and obliged t> con] t-.nt herself with waiting patiently for circum stances to free her from the entangled meshes. Beforo she crossed the ferry it commenced raining, but still she walked on, preferring to he slightly wet rather than to be crowded in among the heterogeneous mass of damp and reeking passengers. She entered the office, received her letter, and with it still in bor hand turned to leave There upon the door* .-ill, pausing in astonishment at seeing her, stood Frank. For sn ln?tunt she hesitated ; a crimson blnsh rose to her cheek and suffused her whole face ; then without waiting for one woid of greeting she darted past him, and careless now into what company she plunged ber?elf, seated herself in a passing car A significant smile drifted over Frank s oountc nance, but he did not follow her. Of how much benefit the labors of that day were to Kate, I ain net called upon to .-rate. Ido not think, however, that it woaM be safe to place a very high estimate upon them. The dry, like all others, had an end. and when the last bell rang Kate was obliged re luctantly to go home. She walked slowly, for she dreaded the meeting that must ensue. When she reached the house, she found that her uncle had n t yet come from the counting-house, and Mrs Kipley had gone ont shopping and h id uot re turned With many a sad foreboding she prepared herself for dinner, arid then she went down into the library to await the re turn of the laintly. Seating herselt in a large arm chair which stood in the niche of a window, she leaned her head upon the casement and gave herself up to anxious thoughts So bu?y was she with the perplexities that crowded her br*in that she didn't hear the cuter door swing on its hinges, she didn t hear a foot-fall on the carpot, .-ho didn t know that somebody was standing betide her, till somebody whispered. " Kito " SLe didn't look, and Fomebody laid hi* hand on her long, dark curls, and passed his arm around her waist and strove to raise her.
