Holoot Tale
There was no moon on that night-
Ilvrk clouds oversprsad tbe heavens
Occasionally tbo wind swept by with
mournful sound.
Locksley all lifted it walls to
ward the sky amidst a mnltitude of
giant trees. On this night one stand
lag close to it could uareiy discern
the dark sky.
Oat at a sido door slipped a young
girl; She walked away from the
house. In a place where tbo groat
trees were thickest overhead she
paused AH was blackness. She
ebivered, and drew her sbawl abxit
her. It was a September night, and
"lie should be here,' she murmur
"He is here, said a voico. "Dear
Katie 1'
Then a pair of strong arms folded
the girl, and kisses Were rained up
on her face.
"My sweet, my love I
"lleibort, I did not dream yon
wero so near.
"No T Bnt yon should know, my
darling, that I would bo punctual to
the minute, lou are a little late.
"I could not come soouor, Fupi
lopt me reading t him. I was glad
tojget away whou I did,'
-I was uot uubraiJingyou, Halie.
M kuow you were not.'
Then they were sileut for a time,
content to hold each others's hands.
"When shall 1 make nil knowu.
Katie t' asked the roan presently.
"Ob, I don t know. 1 droud to
toll papa You kuow tbo feud bo
tweeu him and your papa has raged
fur so long and Leon so high.'
"I can manage my f-ithor.'
"I fear it will be different with me.
t sometimes feel as if papa will nev
er give us his blessing.'
And so tbe conversation ran. Hut
lovers' interviews canuot last forever
and a length the two separated.
The young man's name was Her
bert Fontain. Ilia father ownod an
estate adjoining that of the
of Loi-ksfey Place.
After patting from Katie, Herbert
slowly pursued Ins way along a dark
path. Hearing a rapid stop behind
Litn, he tamed into another path.
"Fenwick !' called a voice.
Herbert did not answer. He knew
the voice well. It was Artbar Lock
ley's tbo father of Katie, ,
"Fenewick 1' was called again.
Still the young man was silent
He knew that it wonld provoke Mr.
Locksley's anger to know that be, a
footain, was a trespasser on bis es
tate at that boar of tbe night.
Mr. Looksley said no more, bnt
kept on his way in another path
Herbert also continued on. Some
words were continually running
through bis brain. They were,
"Kittie. mv love I Eittie my love V
Directly, however, be paused. He
Was bewildered. He did not know
where be was. For a moment he
"Pashaw ! this is ridionlons, that
I should lose my way at the door bf
my own bouse, fairly, uut lue

Then be went on. He bad pro
eeeded bat a short distance when be
beard a man ear s
"l oould not eome to Looksley
Place after yoa ordered me not ta
set foot within yoar door again, ao
there was nothing for it bat to write
yoa to meet me here.
.Herbert saw a building faintly
outlined a short distance before bira,
and discovered where be was. This
etraotare was an old bouse on tbe
looksley estate, uninhabited save by
oaw and owls.
"And I suppose, Mr. Fenwick
Looksley, returned tbe voice of Ka
tie's father, 'that something very
important must have brought you
nere. What crime bate yoo oou

"None that will bring the law on

dollars to keep me out of a debt of

cried Arthur Looksley. "You bare

enough. Obtain what you want as

Then followed a raiment silence.
This Fenwick Looksley, a wild and
dissipated young man, was Artbar
locksley s nephew.

man at length asked.

Arthur Ijocksley was a passionate
man, and bis angor was rising fast.

in, heard a sound like the fallio g of

concluded that the body of Arthur
Lockidey bad been dropped into a
vault Iwneath the old mansion.
As bo rushed in, be enoountored
tbe figure of a man. He seized him.
There was a blinding flash. Thun

verse, rang in bia ears. Then bo
turned and fled madly on, on, till be

Herbert Fontain raised himself
with a start. The snn streamed in
his face through the trees. He was
lying in a woodland path.

Ihe young girl was ushered into
tbe library, la a fo v momeuts a
firm tread echoed aloug the hall, and
Herbert eutered
"Why. Kutie !' bo cried, nnable to
any anything ulne, in sheer astonish
ment at seeing her there.
1 be girl fell on bis broast and
burst into tears.
"I'oor, dear papa I' sbo sobbod.

"We can institute a search, at

am glad yon came to me. I will go
over to Locksley place with yon.'
"tome, dear, as soon as possible.
said tbe poor child.
"I will go now, he said.
On tbe way tbey said but few
words. Arriving there, tbo young
man dispatched a servaut to town
for officers. With tbe assistance of
tbe officers and servants search waa
made. In vain. Night approach
ed, and still no trace ooold be found
of Arthur Locksley.
"I will go borne for a brief space,
said Herbert 'It ia etrange father
has not been here this afternoon.
He was alone.with Katie when he
addressed those words to her.
"Ob, 7erbert it seems ' like a
punishment upon me that papa
abould disappear while I waa with

"With me last oigbt I be said, in

Tbe front entrance was reached.
At that moment some horsemen
rode up to tbe avenue gate. Tbey
dismounted and hurried up to the
bouse. Herbert and bis father paus
ed, waiting for them. Tbey soon
reached tbe bouse.
"Mr. Fontain,' said one, then hesi
tated. "Mr. Hilton,' said erbert s fath.
Mr. Hilton was the Sheriff of the
"Mr. Fontain,' be continued, while
his voice trembled, 'I have a painful
duty to perform, oformation has
been lodgod against yoa, and I am
compelled to arrest yoa apon the
charge of murdering Arthur Locks
ley. Permit me, while discharging
my duty, to express my utter dis
belief in tbe charge."
Mr. Fontain paled. did not
utter a word at first, aoeming too
inuob astonished to do so. Herbert
advanced as though be would strike
tbe officer. Then his father
found his tongue.
"My son,' be said, gontly. 'Mr.
Hilton in blameless in this matter.
Wait till you find theaoensor.'
IIo turned suddenly to tbe Sher
iff "Who is my aoensor T'
"Mr. Fenwick Locksley.'
At the meution of that name Her
bert's bands nniu sought bis tem
ples. "Oh, wonld that I oould recol

Tbe party iuclnding Mr. Fontain
and bis son, reached tbo country
town an honr afterward. Herbert
bad first seen Katie to tell her where
be was going and what for.
"Ob, this dreadful charge is not
true.' wept Katie i "Herbert your
father is innocent i I know be is.
During that ride Mr. Fontain had
scarcely spokeo, ouly to say
"Confront mo with my socager ;
o mfrout me with my acoueer as soon
as possible.'
In a tuagirttrate'a office that was
done. Fenwick Looktley woe very
pale, but bis lipi were set firmly. It
was a desporate game he was playing
but one be considered necessary to
bis safety
"So yoa say that I killed Arthur
Lockuley T' Mr. Fontain aaid haught
ily. "Yes,' ssid Fenwick, boldly.
"Have yoa any other gronods t ban

upon which to fouod your accusa

"I have. I saw yon do the deed.

Mr. Fontain's eyes flashed Ore.
"Fenewick Locksley, yoa lie 1' he
cried, indignantly.
At tbe beginning of this interview
Herbert Fontain's hands flew up to
his temples. His features worked
painfully. As Fenwick Locksley ut
tered bis last words, he sprung be
fore bim and looked npon bim with
flashing eyes for a moment.
'Mtlostl remember I be cried.
"Fenwick Locksley, yoa are the
murderer of your uncle 1 You killed

With a mcttered curse Fenwick
Locksley sprung toward tbe door of
bis room. But half a dozen men
sprung npon him. Ue fought like a
madman, but was soon overpowered.
Dear reader, when, in aa abort a
time after aa possible, Arthur Lock
sley was takeo out of the dark vault
all 'present expected to behold a
mangled oorpse. Hut it waa not so,
for as be was lifted out be opened
his eyea and groaned. He was badly
hurt but be did not die, and upon
tbe events of that night was found

houses of Looksley and Fontain -And
Herbert married Katie-

Herbert Fontain bad a email scar
on his forehead caused by tbe pistol

power of remembering the events of
that latefnl evening.
A well-merited repartee was dealt
by a amart Midshipman to tbe
daughter of a rv. U. is. at a ball
given by tbe latter to the navel of
ficers on the North Paoiflo station.
The middy was bold enough to ask
the young lady to accept him for
her partner. "Oh dear, no," said
the supercilious beauty. "Ma never

tbe middy waa a lord, and ahe re

curiously np at my feet which were
trying to serupn a picture of ISenj-i-miu

I was desperalo.
I snatched tbo first thing I could
lay my bands on, which happoned to
be a base-ball bat belonging to Lot
and I made one murderous Bwor-p.
But instead of killing tbo mousn.
I npset tbe chair on which my wife'

that she turned a graceful sommor-

She screamed for help, and declar

made a grab for it. It proved to be
a warm buokelberry pie, but I didu't
know it at tbe time.
I thought I saw tbo monse run

pie at it.
But at that moment my danghter
opened tbe door, and walked into the
dining-room, and tbe pie struck her
square in the face and smasned.
She began to shriek, and sputter,
and jump np and down, and declare
that she was bleeding to death.
