DEPUTATIONS-WITH A DIFFERENCE

" Well, Hughie," continued Mrs Leroy briskly, " as this coward has failed me, I must say it myself. I want to tell you that people are talking."
" Ursula Harbord, for instance," said Hughie drily.
" Yes. How did you know?"
" She delivered a lecture to me this morning.
Gave me to understand that she
suspects me of being a knave, and made no attempt to conceal her conviction that I am a fool."
"Well, of course that's all nonsense," said Mrs Leroy to a fly on the window-pane; " but really, Hughie, with all the money that her Uncle Jimmy left her, you ought to be able to give Joey more than you do, shouldn't you? The child. has to live in quite a small way-not really poor, you know, but hardly as an heiress ought to live. You give her surprisingly small interest on her money, Jack says-didn't you, Jack?"
Captain Leroy made no reply, but the deep shade of carmine on the back of his neck said "Sneak!" as plainly as possible.
"And you know he would be the last to say anything against you-wouldn't you, Jack?"
" Rather! " said Leroy, in a voice of thunder.
"Hughie," said Mrs Leroy, turning impulsively, "won't you confide in me?"
Hughie kicked a coal in the grate in his usual fashion, and sighed.
" I can't, reahy," he said.
