ENGLISH "Take care!" replied the doctor, warningly; "you know I don't want him killed,only laid up for two or three weeks, and indisposed to meddle with other people's affairs."Mr. Bergan laid his hand warningly on his shoulder. "It seems to me," said he, "that you cannot begin your search better than in this house."

"It is all the same," rejoined Bergan composedly, "I was about to say that, as my mother has long been entreating me to send her some sort of a portrait, it occurs to me that I cannot do better than to get you to make a medallion or a bust of me, whichever you please. The balance of the note can go toward the first payment. We will arrange for the sittings, as soon as you are at leisure."

Chapter 7 THE SET TIME.She turned, and looked him intently in the face."I am in no humor for trifling," returned Doctor Remy;"Major Bergan's will, that you witnessed a fortnight ago."

"I would much rather go to your Uncle Harry," objected Dick, loath to present himself at Oakstead, lest he should encounter Doctor Remy.

Hubert Arling came forward to Bergan's side. "I can settle the question for you," said he. "Congratulate her, and scold us. We brought her down, chair and all; she did not touch foot to the floor in the transit.""Oh, no! I could not do that," exclaimed Coralie, shrinking back and blushing deeply, "he would thinkthat is, it would look like thrusting myself in his way."

"Where is the glass from which he took it?""I charge you, by everything that is sacred, to take no further step in the business that brings you here, until I recover, and we can consult together; and, if I die, I charge you, as you would have me rest quietly in my grave, to take none at all. BERGAN."

"Yes, carry him out," said Bergan gravely, and not without a touch of compassion in his voice; "since he is not on trial, we have no further need of him. But let me recommend that he be not lost sight of, till this present trial is over."Bergan started. There was a quiet significance in her tone and manner that made his heart beat fast, for just one moment,not with elation, however, so much as with a heavy weight of responsibility; as if the chill corpse, the crumbling Hall, the hundreds of negroes, the far-stretching lands, and all the cares and complexities thereto pertaining, had been suddenly flung on his shoulders. But the feeling passed quickly; he remembered the will in favor of Carice, as well as its fraudulent successor (which, he now bethought himself, it might be impossible to nullify, even if he could bring himself to come in conflict with Carice's husband); and the weight slid easily from his shoulders, though not without leaving some correlative heaviness in his heart.

"Well, Bruno, what do you want?"Bergan narrated the facts which he had gathered, from time to time, from Doctor Remy's conversation.
