i FAIR BARBARIAN. By Frances Hodgson Burnett, Author of " That Lass o' Lowrie's," " Little Lord Fauntleroy," etc. CHAPTER IX. WHITE MUSLIN, (Jn S tue good little spinster was arraying -f\. herself, on this particular evening, having laid upon the bed the greater portion of her modest splendour, she went to her wardrobe, and took therefrom the sacred bandbox containing ber best cap. All the ladies nf Slowbridge wore caps, and all being respectfully plagiarised from Lady Theobald, without uny reference to age, size, complex ion, or demeanour, the result was sometimes a little trying. Lady Theobald's head dresses were of a severe and bristling order. The lace of which they were composed was induced by some ingenious device to form it self into aggressive quillings, thc bows seemed lined with buckram, the strings neither floated cor fluttered. " To a majestic person, the 6tyle is very appropriate," Miss Belinda had said to Octa via that very day ; "but to one who is not so, it is rather...

CHAPTER X. ANNOUNCING MB. BAEOLD. Lady Theobald's invited guests sat in the faded blue drawing-room, waiting. Every body had been unusually prompt, perhaps because everybody wished to be on the ground in time to see Miss Octavia Bassett make her entrance. " I should think it would be rather a trial, even to sucb a girl as she is said to be," re ma! ked one matron. " It is but natural that sbe should feel that Lady Theobald will regard her rather criti cally, and tbat she should know that Ameri can manners will hardly be the thing for a genteel and conservative English country town." " We saw ber a few days ago," said Lucia, who chanced to hear this speech, " and she is very pretty. I think I never saw anyone so very pretty before." " Butin a quite theatrical way, I think, my dear," the matron replied, in a tone of gentle correction.

When she raised her eyes to her hostess, she met with a glance fall of icy sig nificance ; when she looked across the tea table, she saw Octavia seated next to Mr. Francis Baiold, monopolising bis attention, and apparently in the very best possible spirits. It only made matters worse that Mr. Francis Barold seemed to find her remarks worthy of attention. He drank very little tea, and now and then appeared much inte rested and amused. In fact be fuund Miss Octavia even more entertaining than be had fonnd ber during their journey. She did not hesitate at all to tell him that she was de lighted to see him again at this particular juncture. " Tou don't know how glad I was to see you come in," she said.
