out. A tall, loose-llmbod fellow he was,
c)ad InvrouEh clothes (that somehow had
about them a vague suggestion of ships
and th sea), and with a moth-eaten fur
cap crushed down upon his head. Ills
face glenmed pnle, and his -eyes were
deep-sunken nnd very bright: also, I
noticed that one hand waa hidden in the
pocket of his coat. But most of all, I
was struck by the extreme pallor of his
face, and thn burning brilliancy of his

strange, hurried sort of way, "the

said I, sharply.
"Peer nt you. sir?"
"Yes, from behind the tree, yonder."
As I spoke, he craned his head toward
mo and I saw his pale lips twitch sud
denly. "And why havo you dogged mo;
why have you followed mo all tho way
from Tonbrldge"
"Why, Blr, surely there Is nothing so
strange In that. I am a shadow."
"What do you mean by "a shadow 7"
"Sir, I am a shadow cast by neither
sun, nor moon, nor star, that moves on
unceasingly In dark as In light. Sir, It Is
my fate (In common with my kind) to bo
ever upon the move a stranger every
where without friends or kindred. I have
been during the last year nil over Eng
land, cast, and west, and north, nnd
south ; within the last wtyk, for Instance,
I have traveled from London to Epsom,
from Epsom to Brighton, from Brighton
back again to London, nnd from London
here. And I peer at you, sir, because I
wished to make certain what manner of
man you were before I spoke, and though
tho moon Is bright, yet your hat-brim
left your face In shade."
"Well, arc you satisfied?"
"So much so, sir, so very much so, that
I should like to talk with you, to to ask
you a question," he answered, passing
his hand a thin, white hand across his
brow, and up over the fur cap that was
so out of keeping 41th the pale face
"A question?"
"If you will bes o obliging as to listen,

for my curiosity was piqued by the fel
low's strange manner: yeCwhen wo were
sitting opposite each other I saw that his
hand was still hidden in the pocket of
his coat.
"Perhaps, sir," said he. In his nervous,
hurried manner, "perhaps you would be
better able to answer my question were
I first to tell you a story an ordinary, a
very commonplace one, I fear, but with
the virtue that it Is short, apd soon told."
"My time Is entirely my own," said t,

Hero he paused, arjd, though his head
waa bent, I saw him watching me be
neath his brows. .
"Welir said I.
"I am e supercargo."
Again he paused expectantly, but seeing
I merely nodded, he continued:
"Upon one of my voyages our vessel
was wrecked, and, so far as I know, all
save myself and six others four seamen
and two passengers were drowned. The
passengers I speak of were an old mer
chantand his daughter, a very beauti
ful girl: her -name was Angela, sir."
Once again he paused and again he
eyul me narrowly,
"Well?" said I.
"Yell, sir," he resumed, speaking in a
low, repressed voice, "we seven, after
'two miserable days in a drifting boat.
reached an Island, where that same night
thn old merchant died. Sir, tho sailors
wero wild, rough men; the Island waa a
desolate one from whence there was
seemingly no chance of escape, It lying
out of the usual track of ships, and this
girl was, as I have sa(d, very beautiful.
Under1 such conditions her fate' would
have been Unspeakable degradation, and
probably death; but, sir, I fought and
bled for her. not once but many times,
and eventually I killed one of them with
my sheath-knlfe, and I remember to this
hour how his blood gushed over my hands
and arms and sickened me. After that
they waited hourly to avenge his death,
and get me out of their way once and for
all, but I had my long knife and they
but such rude weapons as they could de
vise. Day after day and night after night
I watched for an opportunity to escape
with the boat, until at last, one day while
they were all three gqqe Inland, not
dreaming of any such attempt, for the
sea was very dangerous and high.' with
the girl's help I managed to launch the
boat, and so stood out to sea, And I re
member those three sailors came run
ning with great shouts and cries, and
flung themselves down upon the beach
and crawled upon their knees, proving
to be taken off along with us and Peg

three days' buffeting at the mercy of the

for Portsmouth, and six months later

life was perfect, until, through stress of
circumstances, I was forced to take an
otcr position aboard ship. Well, sir, I
bade farewell to my wife and we set sail.
The voyage, which was te have lasted
but three months, was lengthened out

"This, sir!" As ho spoke, his burning

his right was where It hhd been all along,
hidden In his pocket-and held out to me
a gold seal such as gentlemen wear at
tneir ions.
"Ah"' I exclaimed. I
"Tako It!" said the man, thrusting It
toward me. "look at It!" Obediently I
took the trinket from him, and, examin
ing it as well as I might, saw that a.
letter waa engraved upon It. ona of those
ornamental Initials' surrounded by rococo
Bcrolls and flourishes.
"What letter does It bear?" asked the
man In a strangled voice.
"It looks very like tho letter 'Y, " I
"The letter "Y'l" cried the man, and
then, with n gesture sudden nnd tierce,
ho snatched tha seal from me, and.

"To be sure." said he harshly, "tho

to come back to me. And one day sho

hour it was, sir, and on Just such an
other evening; and that same night ahe
"Good God I" I exclaimed. "Poor fel

hand upon his knee, but, at my touch,
he drew back quickly, nnd with a look bo
evil, that I was Btartled.
"Hands off!" said he, and so hat star
ing at me with his smoldering eyes.
"Are you mad?" said I, and sprang to
my feet.
"Not yet," he answered, and once again
ho passed his hand up, and over his face
and brow j "no, not yot, sir." Here ho
rose, and stood facing me, nnd I noticed
that one hand was still hidden In his
pocket, and, thereafter, while I listened
(o him, I kept my eyes directed thither.
"That night before she dlod, sir," he
continued, "she told me the name of the
man who had destroyed her, and killed
my souU and I have been searching for
him ever since cast, and west, and
north, and south. Now, sir, here Is my
question: If I should ever meet that
man face to face, as I now sec you,
should I not be Justified In killing him?"
For a moment I stood with bent head,
yet conscious all tho while of the burn
ing eyes that scanned my face, then:
"Yes," said I. .
Tho man stood utterly still, his mouth
opened as If he would have spoken, but
no word came. All at once he turned
about, nnd walked unsteadily live or six
paces. Now, as I looked, I saw him sud
denly draw his hand from his pocket,
then, as he wheeled, I knew, and hurled
myself face downward as the pistol
"Madman!" I cried, and next moment
was on my feet; but, with a sound that
was neither a groan nor "a scream, and
yet something of both, he leapt Into the
thickest port of tho underbrush, and
made off. And standing there, dazed by
tho suddenness of It all, I heard the
snapping of twigs grow fainter and
fainter as he crashed through ln head

brambles dragged at my clothes, hid

"Hallo!" said he, staring at me.
"Hallo," said I, staring at him.
"You don't chance to 'ave a axle-bolt
about you, I suppose?" '
"No," said I.
"Humph!" he grunted, and, lowering
hs lanthorn, began searching among the
"Is this It?" I Inquired, picking- up a
rusty Bcrew-bolt at my feet.
"Ah!" said he, taking it from me with
a. nod, "know'd I dropped It 'ere some

get another round 'ero tonight, and that
cussed axle's got to be In place to

"Can I have a bed here, do you think?"
I Inquired,
"Ah," said he. "I think you can."
"For how much, do ou suppose?"
"To you sixpence,"
"Why, that seems reasonable," said I,
"It are," nodded the man, "And a fine

"Are you the landlord, then?"
"I be; and If you feel Inclined for a

"Most willingly," said 1: "but what of

"Plenty o' time for th' axle." nodded
the landlord, and, setting down his ham.

way Into the tap. The ale was very
.strong and good. Indeed this lovely
county of Kent s Justly famous for
such. Finding myself very hungry, the
landlord forthwith produced a mighty
round of beef, upon which we both fell
to and ate with a will. Which done, I
pulled out my negro-head plpo, and the
landlord fetching himself another, we
sat, a while smoking. And presently,
learntne I was from Londdn, he began
plying me with all manner of questions
concerning the' great city, of which It
seemed he could not hear enough, and
I, to describe Its wonders as well as I
might. At length, bethtnkler him. of his
