CHAPTER! VI. THE MISTRESS OF CHARTERIS TOWERS London was still in the tenacious grip of the clammy fogs and the leaden clouds, but there were places in England where the weather was far different. Down in Norfolk, only three hours from the metropolis, spring conditions prevailed. The sun shone from a clear blue sky. Buds and grass were springing from the nour ished earth. The air, blowing over the marshland from the sea, was bracing, mild, and fragrant. Birds sang sweetly in the hedges and cop ses.

She can make a garret, iwautifui at little cost, for"the beauty *i iijine depends more upon education. Hid' refined taste than upon mere rtdaiJi. If there is no artist in the. iiuuse it matters little that there is a large balance at the bank. ' There is usualiy no better excuse for a barren home than ignorance or^carelessnesa.
