THE SCEAKTON TIUBUXE-MOXDAT MOENINO, AUGUST L'O, 1894.
It was cloao ou 10 o'clock when 1
twoko next morning. My long tramp of
tlio previous day had tired me more
than I thought. Nevertheless I w.is an
noyed at oversleeping myself and aston
ished that Francis had not called me
earlier. I knew how anxious ho was
abuu.t tho proposed meeting with his
brother and l'uuciod that his impatience
would havo drawn him to my room at
dawn. Apparently he was less curious
concerning tho interview than I thought
Yot, leaving him out of tho question, I
ought certainly to havo been roused by
Strent or his daughter and determined
to reprovo them for such neglect. After
all, an inn is an inn, and one has a
right to attentions for which one pays.
Judging from (3io landlord's looks, I did
not think my bill would err on the side
Thesw thoughts passed through my
anna ns I hastily dressed myself. Open
ing tho window, I looked out on the
marshes golden in the sunshine. A keon
wind was blowing from the 6ea, and
the smell of brine struck into tho heavy
atmosphere of my bedroom. An absolute
stillness prevailed both inside and out
I felt as though I had awakened in the
ppellbound palace of tho sleeping beau
ty. -Au inn of all places should bo full
of bustle and noise, but there was some-,
thing uncanny iu tho silence which
reigned in this marsh locked hostel It
hinted trouble, and I felt uneasy.
In no very good temper I descended
to tho dining room, with ths intention
of apologizing to Francis for my tardy
p.ppearaneo and of rating tho' landlord
for his negligence. To my astonishment,
neither Fruncis nor any ono clso was to
be seen, and tho room was iu precisely
the ssuno condition as dri tho previous
night. Tho tiro was unlighted, the table
not sot out for breakfast; even the win
dow blinds wero down. For the moment
I was sick with apprehension, as it was
impos.-iiblo to conjecture the reason of
this uejtL-ct and absence of human life.
The F.tillness was ns absolute as had pre
vailed up stairs, and when I rang the
bell it echoed through tho houso as
though mocking my efforts to summon
landlord, maid or friend.
Twice, thrice, I pulled the bellrope
without result; then, somewhat un
nerved by the sileuco iu which I found
myself, went to the back part of the
premises. Here the condition of things
was the name as ill the dining room.
The kitchen was empty, nor were there
any signs of firo or of food I explored
tho whole of the gronnd floor and found
nobody. The conclusion forced itself
upon mo that Strent and his daughter
had left tho inn during tho night
What was tho meaning of this sudden
flight? What reason could be sufficient
ly powerful to force them to vacate the
premises? Asking myself these ques
tions, I ontered room after room, but in
none of them did I find any answer. '
Tho front door was bolted and barred,
the back entrance was in the same con
dition, and tliero was no key in either
lock. I considered tho features of the
caso and saw that tho air was full of
mystery, perhaps of Sat, no; in that
lonely house I could not bring mysolf to
utter tho terrible word
I knew not what had happened dur
ing my fleep, but felt curtain that some
event had taken place. Otherwise there
could bo no reason for this state of
things. Almost against my will I
searched tho houso again, but could dis
cover neither Strent cor his daughter
Rose. I was alono in tho house. But
"Francis," said I, repeating my
thoughts aloud, "aye, Francis. I won
der if he has left tho inn also or whether
ho has overslept himself and is still in
his room. " To make suro I went up
stairs to his bedroom. Pray observe that
all this time I had not connected these
things witli crime. It is truo I had a
faint suspicion that thero might possihly
bo some foul play, but as thero was noth
ing to confirm such a belief I abandoned
the idea. 1 declare that when I knocked
at tho door of Briarfleld's room I had
no more idea of the horriblo truth than
tho baho unborn. My premonitions
pointed to mystery, but not to murder.
Yet from the conversation of tho previ
ous night I might havo guessed what
had happened. Tho houso was as ac
cursed as tho palace of tho Artida), and
Ato bided on the threshold stone.
Not until I had thrice knocked with
out receiving any answer did my sus
picions begin to form. Thon they took
shape in an instant. I tried the door.
It was locked Tho ominous silence
still hinted at unspeakable horrors. My
knocking echoed jarringly through tho
stillness. At that moment thero flashed
be fore my eyes tho picture of two fig
ures flying across a red horizon against
which blackened the beams of a gal
lows. It was the shado V-of thoy'nture,
I knocked, I called his name, and finally
in dospt ration at tho continued silence
set my shoulder against tho crazy door.
It yielded with a tearing sound, and I
entered the room amid a cloud of fine
Ho was lying on the bed stiff and cold

der, to placo my hand on his heart. lie
was dead. With tho clothes drawn up
smoothly to his chin lay tho man with
whom I had oonversed the previous
night The right arm lay outside the
counterpane. On the hand glistened a
pearl ring. I looked at that bauble, I
glanced at the waxen face. Tho matter
was beyond all doubt Francis Briar
field was dead
Before I could further examine the
body or the room I was forced to run
for my brandy flask. For tho moment I
Was deadly sick, and it needed a long
draft of the fiery spirit to speed the stag
nating blood through my veins. Tho
strange circHinstanoo was a sufficient
apology for such qualmishness. This
lonely inn sot on a handbreadth of liv
ing ground amid quaking bogs, this
dead body of what had once been a
friend, this solitude by which I found
myself environed, these were sufficient
to shako the Wrongest uwvo. It looks
in a manner prosaio on black and white,
but think of tho horror of the actual ex
perience. For tho moment I oould formulate no
ideas on the subject That luy friend
should bu dead was sufficient to stun
me. When reason ciune back, I atked
myself how ho died and who wii re
sponsible for the crime. Tho landlord,
the maid, the brother, ono of these three
had murder'jd Francis Erinrflold. But
in what way?
I examined the body. It was clothed
in a jiightgowu, and tho clothes lay
folded up on tiie chair by tho bodiida
The face was clm; there were no marks
of violwico ou (he throat or ou tho
frame. Only on tho violet lips lingered
a slight curl of foam. Tho smooth bod
clothes drawn up to the chin forbade tho
idea of a etrugglo. I looked at the right
arm lying on the counterpane, at the
hand, ami there in the palm was a rag
ged wound from thumb to little finger.
It was discolored at the edges and
looked green and unwholesome. This
livid appearance made me think of poi
son, but I was not sufficiently a doctor
to dingnoso the cum correctly. Yet I
was certain of ouo tiling that Francis
Briarfiold had come by his death in
some foul fashion, and that at the hands
Ayo, thsro Was tha rub! So to as I
knew, the landlord had no motive to
commit such a criiuo. Suspicion pointed
toward the maid who had wished to
speak with tho dead man aftor supper.
Yet why should sho desire his death?
From the lips of ' Fraucis'himself I had
heard that ho knew neither Strent nor
Rose, nor indeed aught of the Fen inn.
Hither ho had been brought by his
brother's letter to kotji on appointment
and was as ignorant of the inn, of its
inmates, of its surroundings as L
Could Felix hao committed this
crimo? Tmo, if my theory wero correct
and he had panned himself off to Olivia
Bcllin as Franoii, thoro were some
grounds for beliviag ho wished his
brother out of the way. Fronds would
undoubtedly refuse to pwuiit the decep
tion to be carried on, so it wti just pos
sible that Felix, iu a freuay of wrath
and terror at the idea of his treachery
being expound, might hare slain his
brother. et all this fine theory was
upset by tho fact that Felix had not
arrived on tho prsYious night to keep
the appointment He therefore mutt bo

tered under thoir roof for tho night
Yet their flight locked suspicious. If
they wero innocent, why did they leave
Anothqr question pregnant with mean
ing was tho reason of their being alono
in tho inn. I had seen no servants
either indoors or out. Father and daugh
ter appeared to do all tho work, yet it
was beyond all reason that they should
havo no assistance. Where was tho
cook, the waiter, the hostler, tho cham
bermaid? Tho house was a lnrgo one. Two
peoplo with all the will in the world
could not thoroughly attend to tho do
mestic ecouomy of so great a mansion.
Moreover, the girl had looked unused
to work. That iu itself was suspicious.
"Can it bo?" thought L "Can it be
that these two hired this inn to compass
tho death of Francis Briarfleld, and that
ho was drawn here as into a snare by
his brother's letter? On the face of it, it
looks absurd, and yet in what other
way can I expluin the absence of serv
ants, tho mildewed aspect of the rooms?
Now Francis is doad, and thoy, with
out a word to me, have departed. "
I could not solve tho mystery. Far
from doing so, the more I thought, the
more I examined tho surroundings, the
deeper grew tho mystory. Tho door had
been locked, and I could find no key.
The window also was locked, and even
had it not beou no ouo could have en
tered thereby, so considerable was the
height from tho ground. How, than,
had the iwnassin gained admittance?
Yet sure was I that Briarfleld had been
murdered, but by whom it. was hard to
say nay, impossible.
I did indeed think that he had com
mitted suioide, but this was too wild an
idea to entertain even for a moment
When I parted from him on the previous
night, he was in the best of health,
looking forward to, meeting Miss Bellin,
and was pasHably content with his life.
There was no- hint of self destruction
either in spseoh or action. The thought
that his brother had deceived him
would not havo engendered suoh an
idea. Rather was he determined to un
mask the traitor and regain his prom
ised wife by force. Murder it might be.
Suicide was out of the question.
Thus far I thrashed out the matter,
yet arrived at no logical conclusion. As
there seemed no signs of landlord and
maid, it behooved me to consider what I
should do. According to Francis, his
brother waa duo at the meeting place
that morning, so I deemed it advisable
to wait until he arrived and then ex
plain the circumstances to him. If he
was in lnaguewltb Strent to murder his
brother, he would hardly be abla to dis
guise hii joy at hearing the saooesa of
his plot I therefore determined to
watch his faoo during the interview.
and if I saw therein any signs of guilt
to there and then, in that lonely inn, ac
cuse him a a second Cain. By thus ter
rorizing his soul with suoh accusation
and with the sight of his victim I might
force him into confession.
If he were guilty, I guessed tho plea
behind which ho would shelter himsolf
that he had not been near the place
on the previous night. This I would
counter by the accusation that his emis
saries had carried out his orders and then
sought safety in flight It might be
that I suspected Felix wrongly, yot aft
er tho story told mo by Francis I could
not but think he was eouu ctcd in some
unseen way with the death of the latter.
But, after all, these suspicions wore yot
vague and nimless. All I knew for cer
tain was that Francis Briarfleld was
dead I swore on the iustaut to devoto
myself to finding out and punishing Ids
Having come to this resolution, I
propped up tho open door, so as to close
tho entrance to tho chamber of death,
and descended to tho lower regions.
Finding victuals and fuel in tho kitchen,
I cooked myself a meakaud mado a suffi
ciently good breakfast. Then I lighted
my pipo and took my seat at tho front
door to watch for tho coming of F ulix
Briarfiold. Whether my suspicious
would bo dispelled or confirmed by his
domeanor I was of course unablo to say
uutil tho interview took place. But I
was most anxious to know.
All that morning I looked down the
winding road to Marshmiuster, but saw
no ono coming therefrom. Not a soul
was in sight, and if I did for a moment
think that Strent and his daughter
might return and declare themsel ves in
nocent the thought was banished by a
few hours' outlook. Tho inn, as I said
before, was on a slight riso, and I could
see far and wide. No human being was
to be seen, and as the hours passed I
grow almost horrified at the grnwsomo
solitude. To bo alone with a dead body
in a lonely houso iu a lonely moos is
hardly healthy for tho mind.
Toward noon I took a resolution.
"If," said I, "the mountain won't
coino to Mohammed, why, then, Mo
hammed ln'ust go to the mountain."
Tho interpretation of this was that I
intended to see Felix Briarfleld at Bellin
Hall, Marshmiuster. Face to faco with
him, and I would forco him to explain
why he had not kept tho appointment.
It seemed to mo a suspicions circum
stivnce. Perhaps Strent had told him
Francis was dead, and therefore it would
bo useless for him to rido to tho Fen
inn. If this were so, it would go a long
way toward implicating him in tho
I re-entered tho houso, locked up
everything, and strapping on my knap
sack took my departure toward Marsh
minster. Some way down the road I
looked back at the rain and saw it loom
more grim and ghastly than ever. Even
in the bright sunshine it could not ap
pear otherviso than eerie, and it was
with great pleasure that I left it bo
hind Yet under those sloping roofs
Francis Brrarficld lay dead, and it was
to discover his assassin and a von go his
death that I set my face toward Marsh
minster. to be continued.

how bare the prairie nor how wild or deso

The log cabins ure only ouo story high,

a garden near them, and all supplies are
brought by the trains. Sometimes it is
necwisary for the men to travel twenty or
thirty in ilea to perform a task assigned
them, and for these journeys they uso the
railroad bicycle, a contrivance with two
