Lady Theobald bent forward in her landau."Belinda," she said, "how do you do? I did not know you intended to introduce garden-parties into Slowbridge.""Dear Lady Theobald-" began Miss Belinda."Who is that young person?" demanded her ladyship."She is poor dear Martin's daughter," answered Miss Belinda. "She arrived today-from Nevada,where-where it appears Martin has been very fortunate, and owns a great many silver-mines-""A 'great many' silver-mines!" cried Lady Theobald. "Are you mad, Belinda Bassett? I am ashamed of you. At your time of life too!"Miss Belinda almost shed tears."She said 'some silver-mines,' I am sure," she faltered; "for I remember how astonished and bewildered I was. The fact is, that she is such a very singular girl, and has told me so many wonderful things, in the strangest, cool way, that I am quite uncertain of myself. Murderers, and gold-diggers, and silver-mines, and camps full of men without women, making presents of gold girdles and dog-collars, and ear-rings that drag your ears down. It is enough to upset any one.""I should think so," responded her ladyship. "Open the carriage-door, Belinda, and let me get out."She felt that this matter must be inquired into at once, and not allowed to go too far. She had ruled Slowbridge too long to allow such innovations to remain uninvestigated.
