CHAPTER LXV.-STEAINED TOO FAB. Perhaps only those mho are themselves mothers will understand how bitterly Mrs. Beredith felt towards Keziah. Yet, healing from Gerald Harwyn, immediately on her return from the Continent, that he had a tele gram from Elwortby, telling him to make pre parations to receive his wife, who appeared very ill, Mrs. Beredith at once began to re lent towards Keziab, and unconsciously to frame excuses for ber. Keziah happy, Keziah victorious, she could be angry witb. Keziah broken down, incapable of enjoying her victory, perhaps dying and about to for feit everything, found a place in Mrs. Bere dith's womanly heart. She seemed to forget for a moment her daughter's position ; for Lucy was the first to hear the lamentation that broke from her after she had learnt the news, i.ucy for her part, who had long since forgiven Keziab, felt piqued with ber mother.

Jubal, a thought thinner than when we last saw him, ap peared to be making no effort at all to brighten the spirits of her partner, but puffed away at a big cigar quite spitefully.

Laura, out of mere curiosity, watched the ...

MISCELLANEOUS. ?* AN exchange has the following: t IT tnay, perhaps, be of interest to compare genuine American records of dairy cattle with those which are obtainable in England. The first prize dairy cow at several of the autumn shows in U.S.A. was a Holstein, which gave in 24 hours SSlb. of milk ; and in one week 191b. 2oz. of butter. When she did this she was 4 years old. She is said to have yielded over 2000 gallons in a year, which far sur passes any English record. The Jerseys came far behind this. The best Jersey record is one of lClb. lOjoz. of butter for 2031b. 8oz. of milk-the week's produce. She had eighteen pounds of mixed food per day, viz., corn meal, cotton seed, meal and bran. She was G years old. The nest cow, on a similar ration, yielded 20Glb. of milk in the week, but it^vas of poorer quality, forit only gave IGlb. lOJoz. of butter, ME.
