W?il, I hop* I am considerate, Carter? tou'H excuse familiarity; bat M it U so?greatly flattered by yoar proposal, I am rare; it wea for that I came on at once, and left bin there. You're a widower; bat that'a no difference?of coarse, if you had killed your wife, one wouldn't have liked it; bat I never heard you did. And she can look after your son for you; boya like that ought to have aome maternal bringing-ap as well as paternal; it humanises men more. I attribute all m* iHTinUma that way to my mother living till I was forty, and keeping me virtually at home all the time I wan at school, as they say at Hannibal's" ' Excuse my interrupting you. Dootor. Did ?y son speak to your oaughter before you left them ?" " Yes, yes. of course. He conveyed your offer of marriage.'* " While you were there*" "Yes. He said, 'I wish to speak to Miss Bibber on business.' I said, 'Speak te her, if _ * a fn I ? ? you me, my aear iom ? no, i dian t say tb?t though; I called him Mr Thomas Carter, not enquire, you know, till you die, or aettle an eatate on him, which is the same thing. ' You don't want to speak to her alone, do you ? because in anyth : g else but business I shouldn't mind it.' Then he interrupted me rhort, I must say rather rudely, and said, 'I don't know that you shouldn't hear what I hava to say, Dr. Bibber. I oome on my father's part to aak your daughter's hand in marriage.' 4 For yourself V asked I; and would you believe it? both of them blushed?as if they had IKaiktW# r.f a# V 4 V* far Kim ' ae!/t Vi a A n?-) v* a * > A.i V} tut Ui Ui} colli uo? nuu so I came here." " May I a?k you the result ?" u Did sn? eoeept you, you mean." "JYes?what your daughter said." " Why, she didn't aay a word I nf *noe aid I felt greatly honored and flatten- i, ?nd that I should leave him with her while I took you her acceptance." " But you My she said nothing." " No; why should she ? I told ner, of course, she must accept you, and I should do ao in her name. 4 But, I said, 'as women like to say No several times before saying Yes, I shall leave this boy with you for half an hour, during which time jou may shilly-shallT to jour T?eart's content, and then acoept him It is now half-past ten; you will say Yes precisely at eleven o'clock, and I shall be back fir* minutes after with Carter,'?no, I said Mr. Carter?but that was only to her, and your son was standing by, too." " Then I may take it for granted my proposal ia accepted ?" " Certainly you may, most certainly; and now let as proceed to business When should the wedding come off, is the important question. I don't think it matter* to her in the least?it is merely between ourselves; but possibly you may have a choice in the matter. I tell you fairly, I have none whatever, only I think the sooner the better; I never like these long delays. When do you say, then?" " Would it not be better to wait before fixing anything till 1 have her consent also ?" " What's the good of that7 what's the good of that7 She will accept at eleven; it will merelv delav us an hnnr in utilin* come, let us set to at onoe; what do you say?" " Hare toot strawberries suffered at all by the rain ? "No, I thank Ton, very flourishing, fresh as roses. When I aaw it waa going to rain, yoa I sent oat Bill the gardener at once to posh them ander their leaves if they were at all outside, and I owe their safety to that, I believe. Yoa shall taste some at the wedding breakfast. Shall we have it next week?" "I think that would be rather hurrying it. What do you think of the ministry?" Ladies and gentlemen, I will not infliot upon you a patchwork of opinions, taken second-hand from the local paper, whioh took its opinions from the paper of the capital of the ooonty, which took its opinions from a London weekly paper, which took its opinions from a daily paper, whioh took its opinions from?the deru ml it* opponents, tbe ministry Mid its supporter*. Anyhow, these opinions had been filtered through so many filtering machines by the time they reached Dr. Bibber that the ministry would have disowned them, and the other high personage would not have reoogniied them. After this discharge he returned to the marriage. " But come, Carter, let us have an arrangement; when shall it be?" Mr. Carter felt driven up into a oorner " Perhaps, Dr. Bibber, my sending to-day was somewhat premature, for I had not eont Jkrrt nl 1 fmA ia artiaA^ w -4 .VW r?WW. ? ?

I should like, if possible, to let tbe matter develop itaelf somewbat more naturally; and, till then, shall we let it reat here? Perhaps your daughter's feelings may be outraged; perhaps sne has some other lover; perhaps she doesn't care for MA 99 HI C If there waa one thing Dr. Bibber hated it OthpM AAtirtAl '' anH (Ka ?aa/<?? m*" W?? ?? ? -mmm WW vvw*> ?) mmmms* *U? iu?U?l Ui?J U?T? perceived Mr. Carter'a fond new for them There U a elan of people wbo, not content with dividing the chaooea into yea or no, add a third chance. neither jee er no, thoagh'they may aay both together. 4' My dear air." aaid the Doctor; "when I waa made D.

Mr. Carter, I hold you to your promise, and if when she cornea here with me in a quarter of an hour to accept yon offer yon reiterate your refuaal, I shall inatruct my attorney to brina an action.*' He aallied eut pompously, preceded by his atomaoh, aa a French writer baa it, thii time without any inatructiona to the servant. The aon turned to hia father for an explanation, and the father turned to hia father for an ae oount. "On what ground did she decline? Did the give any reason?" " She did not want her father to settle it for her, and she had never thought of jon; not that she objected at all Bat what waa Dr. Bibbler sajing? bad you declined her also?" " My dear boy, you can, if you choose, do me a great service. After you were gone, I recolleeted that I had made a promise to my wife, your mother, not to marry again. Such a promise of coarse. I cannot break. While I was thinking what I could do, Dr. Bibber burst in, and in spite of all my efforts to postpone any settlement, or to turn his attention to other things, he wanted to bar* the marriage next week. He saw bj my hesitation there was something wrong, and I had to tell him of the promise I nad made; wheraapon he threaten ea me with an action unless I broke a promise I must consider as most sacred and married his daughter. He will be back with her presently, and something must then be done. I should be sorry to tax your inclinations in any w?y, especially u you nave no love ior toe girl; bat I ask you. as a great service to yoar father, will you marry her instead of me?" 44 Certainly, with the greatest pleasure," burst out the aon 44 But will she consent, or will Dr. Bibber?" 44 Dr. and Mrs Bibber!" announced thefootman. The Doctor had an air of victory on his face, and a still greater air of importance. The young lady looked submissive, but under that was a concealed smile of determination, whioh, could the Doctor have read it, would have given him a new idea or two. "Mr. Carter." ho hMkn fcon consented to mo, and I have brought her here that the may give you an affirmative answer Yon wHl bo pleased to ask her, you know the alternative." " Dr. Bibber, allow me a word. If the young lady will step into the drawing-room for a few minutes . " Anything you have to say, sir, must bo in her presence. When your son came to speak to her on business, he did so in my presence. If you wish to speak to me, therefore' it is only 6he should be present." " As you will, Dr. Bibber. I have, I hope, discovered a wav of r?w?nnr>il?n?? tho satisfactory to myself? I bopoitwill be to you. Your daughter is far younger than I am, and a union between as might be?pray do not interrupt me?attended with much unpleasant consequenoes. If I provide her a husband; my son has, in the most generous manner, undertaken to marry her, if that suits her and you." The determination vanished at once from the young lady's faoe. The Doctor thought, and did not hit on any objection. ll Y f -1 % a. i * ? -- xz iuj uaagoier au do oDjecuon," no sua, T will giro my <t/>na?nt; Knt nndtr oortoin conditions. What do jou sav, Carry?" She said nothing, at which Dr. Bibber was dismayed, and Mr. Carter reassured. " Go and ask her," be said to his sou, who was elose to her in a moment. " Miss Bibber, may I hope you will consent to settle the quarrel :" He got an answer; I did not hear what, it was said so low; but she disengaged her arm from her father'*, and walked aside with Tom. while Dr. Bibber went to Mr. Carter and shook his hand warmly. Then, in two different parts of the room, these dialogues took place : " Did you intend to aacept ?y father?" . 441 could not refuse mine, because he never let me speak; but if your father had asked me, I intended to have said ' No,' and that would have been too public for my father to have gone any further." it TI L! 1 _ e * - - - -- now kidu 01 job 10 seme me quarrel so: ' "Kind ?" "Yes; don't you know? I have loved you all the time." "Oh!" " But it muat be distinctly understood that your son marries her, not of himself, but in your place?in loco parentis. "Certainly; just as you like. About tbe settlement "Oh, we needn't trouble ourselves about business details now. Your lawyer and mine? we have the same, though, have we not ??shall draw up theoontraot under our direction. Bat I shall require that it is inserted that he marries her simply and solely in loco par ntis, or you will have to marry her yourself." The Bibbers gained a victory and a defeat. mi t. ? ? - ? * - ino young iaay aia not tell ber fiance that he bed loved him too, whish iu the victory; end the atipoleted clause was et left left out of the contract, which was the defeat.
