The •garden did not look very inviting now, but in the summer lime it would be pleasant enough. The house was , comfortably and prettily furnished; and though Mrs. Evelyn would attend to all the cooking herself, there was a maid to do the rough work. - , . One morning two girls.and a boy, or rather young -man, were seated in the parlour of this house, variously employed. Thepaitour was a good size, and looked very cosy, with a.huge fire burning in the grate ; and though it,was not very tidy, its untidiness was not slovenly, and there were evidences of more refinement than seemed likely to belong to ifche Ev«lyns. Perhaps Bertie was respon sible for the flowers, the.pic lures, the brack, 'ets with pretty china ; ornaments • upon them, the harmonious, lines of the carpct and upholstery;; : The numerous photo graphs of actors and actress...
