He does not raise the rates of lares, although he doubtless charges "a plenty," but he insists that enough of the funds go Into real improvements to make a railroad.

We took the Xantlppe home the Indomptable went to the bottom of the Ray of Hiscay but before our was settled up we were off again; Sir Peter dearly loved cruising In blue water. It was near two years before we got back to England to ; for, except spend that the captain and Mr. Buxton and some of the married officers, I know of no one who saved any. Sir Peter, I understood afterward, spent much of his In a diamond necklace and tiara for Lady Hawkshaw, in which he was most egregiously cheated by a Portuguese money lender, and the balance he put into a scheme for acclimating elephants In England, which was to make him as rich as Croesus; but he 1,000 on the venture, besides lost In those two years his I grew more and more fond of Giles Vernon. We generally contrived to have our watch together, and we were intimate as only shipmates could be. He talked much of what he meant to do when he got ashore with money to spend, and assured me he had never 20 of his own in his life. had above In the course of many nights spent In standing watch together, when the old Ajax was sailing like a witch for she was a capital sailer at that time he told me much about his early youth, and I confided to him the story of Betty Green. Giles' career had been the common one of the younger branches of a good family. His father had been a clergyman, and, dying, left several daughters, who married respectably, and this one son, who was put in the sea service very young. At that time several .Ives stood between Giles and the title and estates of Sir Thomas Vernon, and other lives stood between Giles and Overton; but those had passed away, leaving these two distant kinsmen as heirs to a man that seemed rightfully to have earned his title of "wicked Sir Thomas." I asked Giles If he knew why Sir Thomas, who so cordially hated his heirs, had never married. Giles replied that Sir Thomas showed no inclination to marry until he was near 40. Then his reputation was so well established that he was generally looked askant upon; his character for truth was had and at cards was worse. Hut he had Induced a lady of rank and wealth to become engaged to be married to him. Ills treatment of her was so infamous that her whole family had declared war against him. and had succeeded in breaking off several very desirable alliances he would have liked to make. Of course a man of his rank and wealth could find some woman alas! to take him; but. Sir Thomas was bent on money, with an inclination toward re.nk. and was the last man on earth to many unless he had a substantial Inducement; and several more years had pasted without his being able to effect the sort of marriage he desired. Meanwhile, his health had broken down, and he was now a shattered man and prey for the doctore. All this was very Interesting to me. especially as Sir Thomas' two heirs would one day have the experience of shooting at each other, and possibly deciding the matter of heirship by tin elimination of one or the other from the question. We both got promotion, of course, and that brought us Into the gunroom; but we were as Intimate there as In our reefer days In Ihe cockpit. On u glorious October morning In 1790. our anchor kissed the ground In Ports mouth harbor. When we reached Portsmouth, the news of our good fortune had pre ceded us, and we were welcomed with open arms by men. women, and chll dren especially the women. All the brought back by any single ship during the war was Inslg nlflcant compared with ours. The men were seized with a kind of mad ness for spending their money. The spectacle of an ordinary seaman pa railing the streets of Portsmouth d with a hat, a stick, and watches and Jewelr) quB all over him was common enough, and ha aa sure to be an AJax man. Sad prize-mone- prize-mone- ittle behind the men in their lavish-ness- . Champagne was their common drink, and several of them invested In coaches! the last thing they would aver have a chance of using. Giles Vernon, although the most wasteful and profuse man I ever saw, desired to spend his money in London. Portsmouth being too small a theater for him. Hut the pressing affair of the satisfaction he owned Capt. Overton had to be settled. After much hard linking, Giles came to me on the day and after we reached Portsmouth, said: "Dicky boy, read this letter and give rae your opinion of it." This was the letter. "H. M. 8. Ajar, May 17, 1799. rapt. Philip Overton: "Deal Sir: This is to Inform you that I have reached Portsmouth, after a very successful cruise In the AJax, when we took the Indomptable and Xantippe and a large sum in Bpeeie. My shalr Is considerable more money In short than I ever saw, much less handled. In my life. I would like a month In Ixmdon to spend ihis money before offering my carkass to be made full of holes by you. Dear sir, onslder. If I escape your marksmanship, he month more or less will be of little account; and If I fall, I shai; miss the finest chance of seeing the world I ever had in my life. I think, sir, with difldenee say it, that my record In the AJax Is enough to make plain I am not shurk-- ; Ing the satisfaction I owe you, but I would take it as a personal favor if you would put it off to this day month, when I will be in London. And as I shall eat and drink of the best, 'tis ten to one I will be much fater and therefore be a much better mark for you. I am, dear Your obliged and sir. "Obedient servant, "GILES VERNON." I pointed out to Giles that, although the tone of the letter was quite corI rect, the writing and spelling were scarce up to the standard I was more bookish than Giles. But he replied with some heat: "Who, while reading the communication of a gentleman, will be so base as to sneer at the grammar or spelling?" So the letter went as it was, and in reply came a very handsome, letter from Capt. Overton, not only agreeing to postpone it a month, but for six weeks, which pleased Giles mightily. I wish to say, although Giles was inexpert with the pen, he had no lack of either polish or ideas, and was as fine an officer as ever walked the deck. The matter with Overton finally settled, and the ship being paid off, Giles and I started for London, as happy as prize-mone- prize-mone- gold-lace- gold-heade- With Her Were Daphne and the rious Lady Arabella. Glo- two youngsters could be, with liberty and 2,000 apiece to spend, for I acknowledge that I had no more thought of saving than Giles. We took a chaise and four to London no stage-coacfor us! and reached there in a day. We had planned to take the finest rooms at Mivart's hotel, but fate and Lady Hawkshaw prevented me from enjoying them except for the first night of our arrival. Next morning on presenting myself at the admiralty to ask for letters never dreaming I should have any I received one from Sir Peter Hawkshaw, which read: My "Grand-Nephe- Lady Hawkshaw desires that you will come and bring your money with you to our house in Square, and remain there. "Yours, etc., "P. HAWKSHAW. C. B." Great was my distress when I got this letter, as I foresaw there would not be much chance under Lady Hawkshaw's eagle eye of seeing the kind of life I wished to see. And I was obliged to go, for Sir Peter was the only person on earth likely to In- Berkeley terest himself at the admiralty for me; and I might stay and wither on shore while others more fortunate got ships. If I antagonized him. And when there Lady Hawkshaw commanded was but one thing to do, and that was to obey1. So, with a heavy heart, I took myself and my portmanteau and. a a canvas bag, my 2.000 guineas to the admiral's great lino house in Berkeley Square. My parting with Giles was melancholy enough; for. with the womanish jealousy of a boy, 1 was unhappy to think he would be enjoying himself with some one else, while I was suffering the hardship tf having my money taken care of for me. Giles had no more forgotten the I. ady Arabella than had. and, on reading this note, exclaimed: "Zounds! 1 wish Peter and Polly had sent for me to stay In Berkeley Square, with that divine creature under tho same roof. Do you think. Dicky, we could exchange Identities, Hut on my reminding M to speak?" him that Lady Hawkshaw had de, manded my and would certainly get It, his ardor to stand in my shoes somewhat abated. 1 prize-money- When I reached Sir Peter's house, about noon, the same tall and Insolent footman that I had seen on my first visit opened the door for me. Lady Hawkshaw, wearing the same black velvet gown and the identical feathers, received me, and sitting with her were Daphne Carmichael and the glorious, the beautiful, the enchanting Lady Arabella Stormont. If I had fallen madly in love with her when I was but 14, and had only seven and sixpence, one may imagine where I found myself when I was near 17, and had 2.000 in a bag in my hands. Lady Hawkshaw's greeting was stiff, but far from unkind: and she introduced me to the young ladies, who curtsied most, beautifully to me. and, I may say, looked at me not unkindly. "Is that your in that bag, Richard?" asked Lady Hawkshaw, immediately. I replied it was. "Jeames," she said, "go and make my compliments to Sir Peter, and say to him that if he has nothing better to do, I would be glad to see him at once. And order the coach." James departed. I sat in adoring silence, oblivious of Daphne, but gazing at Lady Arabella until she exclaimed, pettishly: "La! Have I got a cross-eyor a crooked nose, Mr. Richard, that you can't take your eyes off me?" "You have neither," I replied, gallantly. "And my name is not Mr. Richard, but, Mr. Glyn, at your ladyship'i service." "Arabella," said Lady Hawkshaw in a voice of thunder, "be more particular In your address to young gentlemen." "Oh, yes, ma'am!" pertly replied Lady Arabella. "But such very young gentlemen, like Mr. Glyn, or Mr. Thin, or whatever his name may be, are always difficult to please in the way of address. If you are familiar, they are affronted; and if you are reserved, they think you are making game of them." By this speech I discovered that although Lady Hawkshaw might rule her world, terrorize Sir Peter, and make the lords of the admiralty her humble servitors, she had one rebel in the camp, and that was Lady Arabella Stormont. I saw that her remarks displeased Lady Hawkshaw, hut she endured them in silence. Who, though, would not endure anything from that cherub mouth and those dazzling eyes? Sir Peter now appeared and greeted me. "Sfr Peter," said Lady Hawkshaw in her usual authoritative manner, "you will go In the coach with me to the bank, with Richard Glyn, to deposit his money. You will be ready in ten minutes, when the coach will be at the door." "I will go with you, madam," replied Sir Peter; "but I shall order my horse, and ride because I do not like riding in that damned stuffy coach. And, besides, when you and your feathers get In, there is no room for me." "You ride sniffed Lady Hawkshaw. "Even the grooms and stable boys laugh at you. You are always talking some sea nonsense about keeping the horse's head to the wind, and yawing and luffing and bowsing at the bowline, and what not; and, besides, I am afraid to trust you since Brown Jane threw you in the park." It ended by Sir Peter's going in the coach, where the little man lay back in the corner, nearly smothered by Lady Hawkshaw's voluminous robe, and pishing and pshawing the whole way. But I was quite happy albeit I was the victim of Lady Hawkshaw in having my money kept for me for on the seat beside me was Lady Arabella, who chose to go with us. She made much game of me, but I had the spirit to answer her back. After placing the money, we took an airing In the park, and then returned to dinner at five o'clock. I neither knew nor cared what became of Daphne; for was I not with the adored Lady Arabella? That night Lady Hawkshaw was at home, and I had my first experience of a London rout. The card tables were set on the lower floor, for although Lady Hawkshaw hated cards, yet It was commonly said that no one could entertain company In London without them. prize-mone- T in Mimjf Products 31 Lib by 's Vienna Sausage y Is distinctly different from any other sausage you ever tasted.
