dering what the warning could have been which Mrs Capper desired to utter. It must have been a weighty one, for she continued to deliver it at intervals during the next ten years, long indeed after Hughie's growing intelligence had discovered its meaning. But her utterances received about as much attention from her employer as Cassandra's from hers.
However, the immediate result of the conversation recorded above was that Mrs Capper made no attempt to deck Hughie in crape or hearseplumes ;' and later on, when he was old enough to understand the meaning of death, his uncle told him how his parents had gone to their God together-,'the happiest fate, old man, that can fall on husband and wife"-one stormy night in the Bay of Biscay, in company with every other soul on board the troop-ship Helianthus, and that henceforth Hughie must be prepared to regard the broken-down old buffer before him as his father and mother.
Hughie had gravely accepted this arrangement, and for more than seventeen years he and his uncle had treated one another as father and son.
Jimmy Marrable was a little eccentric-but so are most old bachelors-and like a good many eccentric men he rather prided himself on his peculiarities. If anything, he rather cultivated them.
