an eventful interview, a stra.uro sound,
proceeding from the room startled him.
It was that ot a low deep groan, followed
by a heavy tall. As ho turned tho door
knob there was a muttering of voices and
the tread of hasty footsteps within. On
entering the apartment a terrible scene
met his gaze. The llaronet lay upon the
lloor with tho blood llowitiir from a deep
wound in tho forehead, llis open eyes
and clenched teeth told that it had been
almost instantly mortal. Near him on
tlio carpel was a short bar ot iron stam
ed with the old man's blood. It had
evidently been used to pry up tho window
which opened upon a low balcony, from
whence iho perpetrators ot tho awlul
deed had probably entered the room and
Killed Sir 1 nomas sleeping m his arm
As Talbot slood bewildered and uncer
tain how to act he was staitled by a low
cry behind lum. I urning (luieuly hobo-
held Parthenope ir-'izingal her father witli
wide and honmed eyes.
"Hois dead," said Luke, hoarsely.
'Thev have killed him with one blow
and escaped by the balcony into tho
garden. Quick, ring tho bell aud arouse
She tinned toward the bell ropo as if
to comply; then paused and looked at him
J with a sadden mad gleam in her eye.
Luke, sho said, in a whispciylropping
tho bell handle and coming close to him,
vou were heard to threaten my father
to day. You will bo accused of this."
"You cannot believe mu guilty," gasped
Xo," she answered, in tho samo low
.voice, "hut others will, uo n;i i ten

take up tho bar ot iron.
Without understanding her, without
even consenting to her command, ho
obeyed her mechanically, as if ho wero
magnetized by her lierco energy. "When
ho had dono as she directed she suddenly
sprang toward him and seizing him by
tho arm uttered a shrill scream for help.
In an instant tho room was Idled with
affrighted servants, and with them camo
Pearl, nearly fainting.

of my father's murder ! Seo ho has tho

I hero was a rush aud twenty rough
hands seized him. IIo struggled violently
to free himself.
"What do vou mean?" hoexclaimed.in
horror. "Parthenope, you know that I
uu innocent. Whv should you seek to

you tho heart to do it?"
Jlo ceased his resisianco instantly.
"Tnko mo away," ho said. "If sho bo

With u sorrowtul look at the sisters
tho younger bowed to thocaith willi ter

au expression of mingled triumph and
agony ho was led away.
"Tho unhappy young man soon had rea
son to beliovo in his own prophecy. The
bar had been found in his linuil. Tlio
motivo for tho deed was established to
the satisfaction of tho most charitably
disposed. Tlio wholu melancholy story
of ids lovo was mado public, together
with his (piuiTol with tho Baronet on tho
day of tho murder. Parthenope, whoso
tiuaccouutablu malieo had fastened tho
most damning Proofs upon him, testified
to having heard him threaten to inurder
lier father, nnd her evidence was sup
poited by others.
The uso was ilaiu. His own counsel
was so fully convinced of his client's
guilt that he barely mado a show of de
fense. Talbot had llttlo doubt of tho
issue of the tiial, nnd cared still less.
If Peail had loved him sho would lmvo

have kissed her, but she drew back,with

was taken into couit and formally ac

emotion, "your life has been saved at tho

Fearing ho knew not what, Talbot
hastened to tho Ulmer mansion. A sur
geon's gig was standing before tho door,
and a weeping servant admitted him.
He was led into a room whero ho saw
Parthenone lvinir upon a sofa and beside
her holding one of her wan hands, knelt
l'earl, her frail form shaking with sobs.
Ono glance at tho white faco and hollow
eves of tho elder sister told the sorrowful
"What has happened?" ho exclaimed.
"There is blood on her dress."
"Sho has received n wound in tho

gravely by. "Sho is bovond human
"I havo earned my pardon, Luke,"
murmured Parlhenopo.with a faint smile,
"liven you will forgive mo now,as Pearl
has, for I havo told her all. Thero was

"Now, if you havo forgiven tlio poor
girl who has atoned for her lovo and
her guilt with her life, kiss her that sho
may die in pence."
With tears in his eyes, Talbot bent
and kissed her. liven witli tho act, with
a look of sup.cmo lovo sho breathed out
her soul upon his lips. Arising, he look
ed Niully down nt her, and said, in alow
voice : '
"Lovo is mighty, for good or evil

is not afraid of bad weather. Tlo is
guided by the rein. IIo is a great eater,
and generally has a bit in liis month
llis bridle trip usually lasts through life,
llo is always to be depended on, como
wheel or whoa.
Tho horso is covered with hair, but it
is on his neck in the mane. This is his
mano deck. Tlis tail is tlio horso's
after deck. Horses can still be sold at
wholesale after that appendage is gono,
but it is impossible to retail them. Tho
horso has no toes. You will no toes it if
ho steps on your foot. Horses como
from the steppes. Horses aro always
kind and sound. "That is,thc kind that aro
advertised for sale. Thero is a pleasant
sound about tho expression. A horso
won't go right unless you pull him from
tho straight course. They aro a very
horscpitablo animal. You seldom seo a
horso still. They will eat corn. They
will leave tho cob, but a cob will not
leave the corn. Their Hush is sometimes
eaten. The filly of beef is reckoned a
dainty. The female is called a mare.
A sea-horse is a cheval do mer. A horso
is sometimes called a charger. Stable
keepers are chargers also.
Tho horso is not very strong. He has
to lay down his ears when ho lifts his
heels. And when ho lifts his heels look
out for horso scare. Horso care are quite
common in our crowded streets. "When
a horso feels his oats you would best
mako an oat of it. A whinnying horso
is a bad neighbore. Tho horso has four
legs and is well armed, llo carries a
cannon and bullets. His muzzle is far
from his cannon. A horso has four feet,
and wo often hear of one of fifteen
hands. You can't stifle his ambition.
Ho is a kingly beast and always wears a
coronet. Ho cares nothing for tho
thrown. You can tell a horso's ago by
liis teeth that is, if youknowwhat his
age is before you look at his teeth. It is
not considered polite to look a gift horso
in tho mouth. Ho might givo toss lo
you if you did.

horso and tlio reddish horse must nol bo

tho horso radish. These latter aro horses
of another color. A horso laugh is not

says that tho horso "saith among tho

HOW IT AN1 A THICK MUI.E WlTllDliLW
l'liOPi THE NATIONAL SHOW.
Tho Tribune says: One morning when
the show opened, the ring master laid be
fore thoaniinals a letter from the giraffe,
who said that in consequence of tho
treatment ho had received lie felt com
pelled to leavo the show. IScfore the ex
citement over this announcement had
subsided, tho ring master said ho had
a letter from ono of the trick mules who
also withdrew from tho show. At this
there was a little squirming among tho
snakes, and one, a copperhead,spoko up:
"liooks as though tho show was brcalc
iug up;" and a fellow who had been
kicked out once and crept in again im
d'.T the canvas, and was wanting to bo
appointed sceno shifter, said: "It's a
cold day for this show when it gets left
by that noblo animal, the giraffe; to say
nothing of tho trick mule." 'Tho show,
however, went on, and tho giraffe and
tlio trick mule went away and waited for
tho manager to bend for them. After
many days, curiosity as to what would
become ot tho circus gave way to solici
tude for tho giraffe and trick mule.
A committee being sent out learned
that the trick mule had hired out on tho
tow path, but that tho giraffe, having
never done anything useful, sought em
ployment in vain until a village engine
company utilized him as a lire escape,
in which position ho was able to do for
others what ho never could do lor him
self let them down easy.

Thero is always one bully in every

others to mako the raid, and then stands
on tho outside to take it away from

Thero is tho chief, of whom all aro afraid,
and then thero is tlio next in rank, of
whom all aro afraid but tho chief; a

his depaiture for England and while ho
was arranging business affairs, "so that,"
as Charles said, "if anything should hap

pile of notes on the table amounting to
about twelve thousand dollars, which ho
thought was all tho money Charles had.

Tho chain was of solid gold, a present
from the California miners, very heavy,
though plainly wrought, and worth sev
eral hundred dollars. IIo had also a di
amond pin of considerable value, and
two diamond rings. Hesides, his last
