THE SCKANTON TKIJiFNE-SATURDAY MORNING. AUGUST 18. 1804.
171E MYSTERVof r XfA CAB:
If tliore bo wifclit in presentiments, 1
whs wull wanirtl by that first glimpse
of the inn. The mouHtrous bulk of
gables, sloping roofs and lean chimneys
hunched blackly agniust tho sky wouliJ
havo scarotl a bolder spirit than mine.
All day 1 had walked under blue sky,
btilwoun green hedgerows, with light
heart and whistling lip. Confronted in
the twilight by ho sinistur a scene, 1 felt
jualmish. Kagged clouds dropped their
fringes over sullen western red, around
Bpread tho salt marahes, evil in their
desolation, and I, with' chilled blood,
stared at tho lonely mansion dominating
tho outlook. Here, thought I, nn arlveu
turo awaits me. The hour, tho house,
tho scone, hint at romance, nnd that of
So much were my spirits dashed by
those ominous environments that it was
in my mind to walk tho farther 10
miles and sholter for the night at
Marshminsfcr. Vet some fate compelled
my unwilling feet toward that inhospi
table door, nnd almost before I knew
my own mind I was knocking loudly.
It opened while my hand was still raised
for tho final rap, and a handsome wom
an presented herself to my astonished
eyes. What beauty did among tho tombs
I know not, yet there she smiled.
Though handsome, she was not a lady
and lacked tho undofinablo stamp of
birth. At tho same'timo she was above
the commonality. Not a lady, not a
servant, but something between the two.
Her appearance confirmed the promise
"I have walked from Eastbury," said
I, cap in hand, "nnd wish to put up
hero for tho uight. "
"Marshminster is only 10 miles
away," answered she, in nowiso dis
posed to admit me.
"And for that reason I want a bed
hero. Twenty and moro miles walking
under a hot sun has wearied mo consid
erably." "I am sorry wo cannot accommodate
"This is au inn," I said, glancing at
"The Fen inn, sir," slio replied, still
smiling, "and full of guests for the time
"Full of guests in this locality! You
must then entertain waterfowl, for 1
have scon no human being for the last
She made no direct answer, but shook
her head and prepared to close the door.
Piqued by tho discourtesy and still more
by the mystery of this reception, I was
about to insist upon admission when
my attention was attracted to a face at
tho near window-. I recognized it as that
of a college friend and waved my stick
"Hello, Briarfield!" I shouted lust
ily. "Come and help me to a night's
The girl was surprised by my remark,
and, as I thought, changod color. She
stepped 83ido to let Briarfiold pass and
exhibited further astonishent at tho ur
banity of our greeting.
"What wind blows you here, Den
ham?" asked Briarfield, shaking my
"1 am ou a walking tour, " I an
swered, "and hoped to have reached
Marshminster tonight, but as it is 10
miles away and I feel weary I wish to
sleep hero. This young lady, howevor,
says the inn is full of guests and"
"Full of guests!" interrrupted Briar
fiold, looking at tho girl. "Nonsense,
floso. I am the only guest hero!"
"We oxpoct othors, sir, " said Ilose
"You can't cxpeat a sufficient num
ber to fill the. houso, " ho retorted.
"Surely Mr. Dunham can have a bed?"
"I shall ask my father, sir!"
When she disappeared, Briarfield"
turned to mo with a amilo and asked a
"Now, I'll bo bound," said he, "that
yra don't know my first name!"
"No! You are wrong. I am not the
rich Felix, but the poor Francis."
"You see the result of being one of
twins," said I impatiently. "If at col
lege I could not distinguish between
you, how can you expect me to do so
now? I haven't seen either you or your
brother for at least two years. Where is
"At Marshminstor. "
"And what are yon doing here?"
"Ah, that's a long story! If you"
"Plenso to walk in, sir," interrupted
Rose at this moment "My father do
sires to speak with you. "
"I havo, then, to submit myself to the
approval of tho landlord, " said I and
forthwith entered tho Iioubo, followed
by Francis Briarfield.
Tho landlord, a lean, saturnine man
Above tho common height, saluted me
With a sour smile. In appearance and
demeanor ho was quite in keeping with
that dreary inn. About him lurkod a
IMritanio flavor not ill suited to his
comber attire and unctuous speech. He
was less like an innkeeper than a smug
valet. I mistrusted tho man at first
"I can give yon supper and a bod,
sir," said ho, bonding his body and rub
bing his hands, "neither, I regret to say,
of the first quality."
"Never mind," I answered, unstrap
ping my knapsack. "I am too tired and
hungry to be particular."
"We have only lately takon up this
house, sir," he continued, still bowing,
"and things are a trifle disordered. "
I glanced around. Despite tho cheer
ful blaze, of a fire, the room had a mil
dewed look, as though long uninhabited.
Traces of hasty cleansing wero visiblo in
all comers, and in the dim light filtered
through dusty panes the apartment had
a singularly uninviting aspect Again
that premonition of misfortune came
over rho, i :
. "I wonder you took up tho house at
all," said L "You won't make your
fortune in this locality. "
The landlord made no reply, but mut

ed, presumably in tho direction of the
kitchen, and I found myself alone with i
Francis Briarfield. Ho was absently
looking out nt the window and started
when I Hiidresst'd him directly I
augured mystery therefrom.
"What's the moauingof these mysto- j
ries?" 1 asked abruptly. Tho horror of i
tho place was already influencing my

field in a listless manner.
"This inn has been uninhabited for

"If you put it that way, I admit tho
mysteries, replied Francis, coming to
ward tho fire, "I know littlo about tho
inn, still loss about the landlord and his

"And you?" j
"1 only arrived this month in Eng

"Why neutral ground? Havo you

cis in a harsh tone, quite at variance
with his usual soft speech.
"Oh! And her name?"
"I know her. Do you mean to say,
"Hush!" he said, rapidly indicating
the door, and there stood the girl Rose
listening to our conversation. Her face
was pale, and it was evident that the
mention of the name had powerfully
affected her. Seeing our eyes wero on
her, sho apologized in a low, nervous
"Your pardon, gentlemen, " sho said,
placing a tray on the table. "1 did not
intend to interrupt your conversation.
Allow me to lay tho tablo for supper. "
"First show mo my room, " said I,
picking up my knapsack. "I am dusty
and wish to give myself a brush up. "
Rose nodded and preceded me out of
tho apartment I glanced back and saw
that Francis had returned to his old post
by tho window. Evidently ho was
watching for the arrival of his brother.
"Whon doos Mr. Felix Briarfield ar
rive?" I asked Rose as we ascended tho

said, with an obvious effort.
"You don't know tho name?" I ro
peatod, seeing she was lying, "yet Mr.

"It may be so, sir. But I know noth
ing about it. Mr. Briarfield is a stran
ger to me, like yourself. "
"It is to bo hoped you received him
more willingly than you did me. "
My words fell ou tho empty air, for
after her last remark Bhe hastily depart
ed. I mechanically attended to my
wants and woudored what could be tho
meaning of tho girl's attitude,
"She knows Miss Bolliu and Felix
Briarfield, " 1 thought, "perhaps not
personally, but at least their names.
Sho is also awaro of tho intended visit
of Felix to this place. I must find out
from Francis the reasou of that visit,
nnd it may throw somo light on the do
meaner of Rosa I am glad 1 came here
tonight, for that landlord is scarcely a
person to be trusted. Certainly my pre
sentiment of romance is coming true, "
Whon I descended to the dining room,
I found Huppur laid and Francis impa
tiently awaiting my arrival. A lamp
was lighted, and for tho first time I saw
his faoe plainly. The alteration in his
looks and demeanor since our college
days was astonishing. Felix bad nV.vr.ys
been tho graver of tho twlnB, and it vra:
the distinguishing mark between t.Vm
Now the livolier spirits of FrtmoU h.d
calmed down to a subdued gravity which
made the resemblance between them
still greater. We seated ourselves at the
tablo in silence, and be colored its he
caught ray earnest look.
"You find me altered?" ho askod,
with manifest discomposure.
"Very muoh' altcied nnd more like
Felix than over. "
"I haven't soon him for over a year, "
aid Briarfield abruptly, "so I dou't
know if the resemblance is still strong. "
"It is stronrrcr. " I answered eniphat
lcally. "I saw Felix two months ago,
and now I look at you tonight I can
scarcely believe it is Francis and not
Felix sealed before me."
"Wo are alike to outward viow, Don
ham, but I hope our natures ore differ
ent" "What do you mean?"
"Felix," said he, with marked delib
eration, "is a thief, a liar and a dishon
orable man. "
"You speak strongly."
"I have reason to."
"The before mentioned reason, Briar
field," said I, alluding to tho feminine
"Yes. By the way, " he added fovor
ishly, "you said Miss Bellin was known
to you. "
"In a casual way only. She is a soci
ety beauty, and I have met her once or
twice; also her very silly mother. The
latter is m remarkable for folly as the
former is for beauty. Well, Briarfield,
and what altout Miss Bellin?"
"I was engaged to hor. "
"You are eugagod to hor?"
"I said 'was,' " he replied, with em
phasis. "Now she is engaged to my
brother. " -
"Of her own free will?"
"I don't kuow, " said Briarfield. "I
really don't kuow When 1 went to
Chile, 1 was her affianced lover Now I
return and learn that she is to marry
my brother. "
"What explanation does ho make?"
"Nouo as yet Tonight or tomorrow
monniit he comes here to r::pluin. "
"Lut why lure, of all plana?"
"Miss LVlliu is in Alarshminster
Felix is saving there a!.o, and m his
letter asked me to ceo him ut tho Fen
inn, as lie wished to explain his conduct
fully before 1 mi t Ulive again. "
"And you agreed?"
"As you see. "
"In your place, "said I meditatively,
"I should have gone at once to Marsh
minster and confronted both There is
some trickery about this."
"You think so?"
"1 am by nature suspicious, " I an
swered. "Perhaps too much bo. Yes, I
think there is some trickery. "
Francis frowned and glaucod at his
"It is uow 8 o'olockV' ho said, re
placing it in his pocket, "too late to
go to Marshminster. "
"Besides which," I ndded, "our
worthy landlord has doubtless neither
trap nor horse. "
By this time we had finished supper,
and Rose eumo in to clear uway
Thoughtfully filling my pipe, I watched
her closely Undeniably sho was a very
beautiful woman and ill suited to her
present occupation. Why a girl so hand
some should bury herself in this lonely
.Inn was a mystery to me. I frit sir?
that thi re was u purpose connected with
her presence here, and that inimical to
Bviurtield. Too landlord did not miiko
his appearance, which was to nio a mat
ter of soruo relief. I disliked the fellow
Francis, smoking hard, sat staring at
tho lire and took no heed of Rose. Once
or twice she glanced in his direction
and looked as though about to address
hiin. Catching my eye, she bit her lip
and desisted Finally she disappeared
from tho room, with manifest auger at
not having accomplished her design.
"Strange," said I, lighting my pipe.
"What is strange?" asked Briarfield,
"That girl knows your brother."
"It's not impossible," he answered
carelessly "Felix always had an eyo
for pretty faces, and as he appointed
this inn as a mooting placo ho has prob
ably been here before. Roso Strent no
doubt draws him hither by her beauty. "
"That is not a compliment to Miss
"1 know it. Felix is a profligato
scamp and will make her a bad hus
band. He shall not marry her," added
Briarfield angrily. "I say he shall not
inarrv her and make her lifo miserable,
I'll kill him first."
"Man, man, think of what you ore
saying your owii brotherl"
"My own brother my twin broth
er, " scoffed Francis, "is that any rea
son why he should tako away from me
the woman I love?"
"She is not worth regretting if she
forgets you so soon. "
"She has not forgotten me," ho said
earnestly. "I assure you, Dunham, she
loves me stilL The last letter I received

from her gave no hint that sho wearied
of mo. As yon say thero is somo trick
ery about it I'll have an explanation
from Felix," continuod he, striking tho
table with his fist, "or, by heaven, I'll
kill him I" .
"Where did you meet her?" I asked,
ignoring this last remark, which was but
"In town over a year ago, " he re
plied, calming down. "Sho is, as yon
kuow, very beautiful, and her mother
wishod her to make a great match. I
am cprufortably off, but havo not a title;
tberoforo Mrs. Bellin would not sanc
tion the engagement. Then I had to go
to Smith America on business connected

that nothing should pnrt ns or render

his hand, "this pearl ring. I was to bo

is that she is to marry Felix. "
"Did she write und tell yon so?"
"No. But Felix did and asked me to
meet him here before seeing her. "
"Now, I wonder if this apparent
treachery of Miss Rellin has anything
to do with your twinship?"
"Whut do you moan?" asked Briar
fiold, starting up.
"You are so like in appppranco, "said
I, "that no ouo could tell you upan

"Impossiblo! She would detect the

"It cannot bo; it cannot be," he mut
torod feverishly. "Ilerown heart would
tell her the truth. "
"Did yon tell Felix of your engage.

"Yes. I told him all."
"And when did you hoar Inst from

cause she did not roply to my letters
that I came back so soon. "
"To whom were your letters sent?"
"To hor, of course. "
"Care of Felix?" said L with in
"Why, yes," he said, with a snddon
frown. "I did not want Mrs Bellin to
know of our engagement, so did not
dare to write opouly. Felix undertook
to doliver the lettors."
"Ho may have undertaken to do so,
but," I added forcilly, "ho did not"
"The whole case is as clear as day, "
said I "Felix was in lovo with Miss
Bellin and wishod to marry her Kuow
ing she was in love with you, he was
well aware he had uochnnco, so resorted

"If 1 thought so," mnttertd Francis,
biting his fingers, "if I thought so"
"I am sure it is so. Now you see why
it is imperative thnt he should inter
view you before you meet Mina Bellin.
Ho wishes to reveal the deception and
throw himself on your mercy. "
"Ho'll get no mercy from mo if this
is so," said BriarfUld in a somber tone,
"Oh, fool that I was not to write direct

"I sdvise yon to bo on your guard

"Do you think ho'll kill me?"
"I dou't g i at fur m that," 1 replied
cautiously, "but your meeting will be
productive of trouble Just now you ex
pressed a wish to kill him. "
"And I shall if ho has tricked me-as
you say. "
"Nonsense, Briarfield, you talk wild

At first Francis was unwilling to re
tire, but wheu the landlord came to lock
up for the night and laughed at the
idea of any 0110 coming thero from
Marshminster he fell in with my desiro.
