THE SCRANTON TBIJJTJNE-MONDAY MORNING. AUGUST 27. 1891.
AFH(tf'fhi&hkl Ha. i 1)1
When I told Dr. Mrrrick of my good
fortune in finding Roso Stront, or, to
use her stago name, Roso Gornon, lie
was conni(lrnl)y astonished. Tho ctine
had takon hold of liim so ooniiiletuly
that he could think of nothing else. He
bad a largo practice and attended fairly
well to his patients, hut informed mo
that ho did bo in a mechanical fashion,
movo or lens, as his hrain was husy
with tho Fen inn myctery. ' We were
now wonderfully familiar,- considering
tho short period of otir acquaintance,
hut this was doubtless due to tho inter
est we both took in tho case, "Upon
my word, Denlmm," wiid Merrick, rnb
hing his head irritably, "I wish you
had not como near mo with your hallu
cinations. Instead of attondiug to my
business, I think of nothing but yonr
mysteries. Tho sooner wo unravel this
Hddlo tho better will it bo for mo. You
Bro an idle bachelor, so it does not mat
ter much to .n, but I ant n busy med
ical man, id this infernal business
worries mo greatly. At this moment I
ought to bo attending to a patient, in
stead of which I am wanting my tiuie
"Shall I go away?"
"No, confound youl I wish to boo
tho end of this affair, or I'll get no
peace of mind. It is too lato to remedy
tho matter, so I must havo my curiosi
ty allayed by learning all tho ins and
outs of this enigma. Como, let us begin.
You have found Hose Stront?"
"Yes. She ia a burlesque actress and
plays at the Frivolity theater. Her
name in tho programmo is net down as
Rose Gernon, but this ia doubtless her
6tago naiuo. Rose Strwit is her real
"I'm not bo sure of that, " said Mer
riok shurply. "If she went into that
Fen inn business with her eyes open,
eho doubtless took a falso name, so as to
"Thou what about tho landlord, who
called himself Edward Stront?"
"Oh, we must find out all about htm
also. No doubt his namo is falso also.
Did he look like her father?"
"Well, I can't nay that there was
lunch likeness between them. Ho looked
to mo like a valet."
"A valet," muttered Merrick reflect
ively. "Queorl I wonder if he really
was a valet valet to Felix. "
"In that case he'll be with him now."
"It is not impossible. Ho has Folix
in his power and can stay on just as ho
likes. It's my opinion he'll stay till he's
pensioned off. .Case of blackmail, I
"I think Rose Gernon is blackmailing
"Quito so. What olso can he expect?
Or else," added Merrick, looking
straight at me, "it's a case of love and
VWhat! Do you think Felix promised
to marry Rose if she helped him to get
rid of his brother?"
"I think he might lead her to believe
he would do so. "
"This is absurd, Merrick," said I
sharply. "Felix is in love with Olivia.
The motive of the crime was to gain
possession of Olivia's hand. Roso would
not help Felix if she know that. "
"Precisely. If she knew it Eut it's
my opinion that she does not know it.
I bnliove Felix gulled her into belief
that he would marry her if sho gave her
assistance, but ho has not the slightest
intention of keeping his promise. "
"And what excuse could ho make for
wishing to murder hla brother?"
"Ah, there you have me I I don't
know that. Of course you and I are
aware of the roal motive of the crime,
but Rose is ignorant of it Sho thinks
she knows, no doubt but I'm certain
ahe been put off with a lie. "
"Cut he can't keep the information
from her for ever. Even if he keeps
quiet some one is bound to tell her that
Felix is ongagod to Miss Dellin. "
"There you are wrong," said Mor
rick, with grim jocularity. "Every one
thinks Francis is engaged to Miss Bel
lin." "Yes, but ,Rose Gernon knows well
enough that Francis is dead, and that
the engaged man must be Felix posing
"There's some truth in that," admit
ted the doctor, looking puzzled. "I sup
pose ho must Tiavo kept that fact from
her so far, as I don't sco what possible
explanation he oould give her."
"Always assuming she is in love with
him, " said I musingly.
"Oh, as to that, I am certain it is so.
A woman like Rose Gernon drawing a
good salary would not mix licrsolf up
in such a dangerous business merely for
money. Tlisre is a stronger motive, and
that is love. I'll lay anything," continued-
Merrick, iu sporting phrase,
"I'll lay anything that sho is madly in
love with the fellow. "
'fWell, and Olivia, thinking Felix is
Francis, loves him madly also. If these
two women come together, there will
be trouble for Folix."
"Eureka!" cried the doctor, jumping
up excitedly, "the very thing. When
thieves fall out you know the adaga
Lot us bring the two women together
and see the upshot"
"Thorewill simply be a row," said
1 "What is the use of tlint?"
' "This, " retorted Merrick sharply
"that when Rose finds sho has been be
trayed sho will levoal all tho mystery
out of rovfinge and assure Olivia that
Folix ia not Francis."
"That's not a bad idea, Merrick; also
it might occur that Olivia reveals some
thing in her turn. "
"Impossible. Shocan't possibly know
the man's villainy, olso she would not
think of marrying Mm. " ' '
1 "I suppose not, and yet, " I added re
'fleotively, "I wouldn't be surprised if
she were cognizant of Felix's move
jments on the 10th and 11th. She cer
jtainly stuck up for him in the most
laraaxing manner at the first interview. "
1 "Of course she did, because she be
lieves he Is Frauds. Depend upon it,
doctor, she knows nothing, and if we
i69 B TC AUTHOR
bring her and Rose together there will
be a revolution and a revelation. "
"It's worth trying at all events. But
how can it be managed?"
"By working on the natural jealousy
of tho sex. Tell Olivia that Felix re
ceives a woman iu his rooms every even
ing." "Oh, hang it, Merrick," said I, red
dening, "it wouldn't bedulicate even to
a married woman, let alone a girl. "
"Of course I don't mean you to put
it to her in that barefaced manner,"
said Merrick hnsttly, "but handlo the
mat tor delicately. Wrap it npin sugar.
1 Joave it to your own judgment, in
any case yon must, rouse the jealousy of
Miss Olivia Bellin and induce her to
come with you to tho chambers of Fo
lix when he is interviewing Rose. "
"Sho wouldn't come without hor
"Then bring her mother along with
you. This is a serious matter, and it
doesn't do to be squeamish. "
"Then do it yourself, " said I angrily.
"I!" said he, takon aback. "No. I
clou t know Miss Bellin. You are tho
proper person. Besides it's better that
she should know the truth, even at the
cost of a shock to her delicacy, than bo
tied to a brute liko Folix, as sho cer
tainly will be."
"Not if Roso can help it "
"She can't help it if sho doesn't
know. And the only way to spoil the
game of FoHx is to bring the two wom
en face to face. Their mutual jealousy
will do tho rest, and instead of going
to tho altar Felix Briarfield will find
himself bound for the scaffold. "
"True enough. Well, I'll try, Mer
rick, but it's a job I don't like. "
He laughed at my scruples and tried
to show mo that I was really doing
Olivia a service in being so plain spo
ken, but iu spite of all his arguments I
departed from his house in low spirits.
I did not relish tho idea of interviewing
Olivia on so delicate a subject, yet I
saw it was imperative and therefore
made up my mind to carry through the
business at whatever cost of personal
inconvenience to myself. That is the
worst of being an amateur detective.
One's feelings are not under sufficient
Tho next day I called at Swansea
square and sent up my curd to Olivia.
As it so happened, her mot her had gone
down to limiingham with Felix, and
she remained at homo on the plea of a
headache. She sent dowu a message to
tho effect that she was unwell and
asked me to excuse her, but I scribbled
a few lines on my card asking particu
larly to see her. This time tho servant
returned with tho information that. Miss
Bellin would see mo for a few minutes,
and I was shown into the drawing
room. I felt nervous, but, determined to
go through with the matter, managed to
screw up my courage. It was a most
unpleasant task, but very necessary if I
wanted to attain my object
When Miss Bellin entered, I could
not suppress a start, so changed was sho
iu outward appearance. As I said be
fore, she was a tall, well developed and
very beautiful woman, but now she had
grown thin, and her face wove an anx
ious expression. I could not help think
ing that she knew something about tho
tragedy at tho lono inn, as I could con
jecturo no other reason for her ill health
and manifest discomposure. She camo
forward, with a nervous smilo, and
greeted mo in a low voice.
"My mother and Mr. Briarftold have
gone to Hurlingham," sho said, sitting
down on a lounge near wliioh my chair
"I am not sorry for that," I answer
ed gravely, "as I wish to see you
"What is tho matter, Mr. Donham?
Havo you anything very terrible to tell
"I think it is terrible."
"About Francis?" Bho demanded anx
iously. "Yes. About Francis."
"Surely you are not going to begin
again about that foolish matter you
spoke of 'at Marshmhister. "
"No. It is not nbont that. "
Olivia passed her handkerchief across
her lips and gave a sigh of relief. Tho
expression of her face was so strange
that I was more than ever convinced sho
suspected the trnth.
"I am glad you have given over that
mad idea about Francis being Felix,
sho said at length. "I cannot conceive
what made yon take up so strange a bo.
lief. Felix is in Paris. "
"I know that Miss Bellia I saw
This I said in the hope of startling
her, but sho did not move a ninsclo of
her face. Either she was keeping well
in hand or was cognizant of tho fact
that Felix had gone to Paris for the
purpose of deceiving me. If so, she must
have known he was not Francis, and
also that my story of the lono inn trag.
edy was true. It was on my tongue to
ask her if Bho was aware of the terrible
trnth, but on reflection I judged it best
to let events evolve themselves. Fate
could manage these things better than
a mere mortal.
"I know you would see him there,"
she said coldly, "but I cannot conceive
why you should desire to convince your
self that I spoke truly. "
"Beoauso, Miss Bollin, I believe that
the man who calls himself Frauois ia
"Tho same old story," she said im
patiently. "You aro mad. If yon saw
Folix in Qjiris, you must be convinced
that you are making a mistake.
"Well, Miss Bellin, we will waive
that point for tho proseut I will call
tho man to whom yon are engaged
' "As he is," she interpolated imperi
ously. I lot tho romark pass and went
on with my speech. "You will no doubt
think mo highly impertinimt but
wish to warn you against the so called
"What do you mean, sir?"
"Simply this: While at the Fen iuu
I was waited on by a woman who call
ed herself Rose Strent That woman is
now in town aoting at the Frivolity the
ater under the name of Rose Gernon. "
"And what have I to do with such a
creature?" she asked in a trembling
"Nothing, but your lover has every
thing to do with her. "
We were both on our feet by this
time, and she was looking at me with
wrathful eyes." The crisis I so dreaded
had come, but it was now too late to re
treat, and there was no help for it but
to go on.
"Bo augry with me if you like, Miss
Bellin, " I said as soon as I was able,
"but it is iu your own interest I speak. "
"My own interest!"
"Yes. This woman Rose Gernon is
in love with Francis B"
"No, no!" she murmured, her face
growing white. "You are making a
"It is troo," I said doggedly, "she
was with him at his chambers yester
day evening at 8 o'clock. She will be
there tomorrow evening at. the same
time. I learned that fact today."
"Did you como here to insult me,
sir?" asked Olivia iu a voice tremulous
"I came here to do yon a service, but
if yon look upon it in tho light of au
insult I may as well take my leave."
"Stop, sir!" sho said, placing herself
before ma "You shall not leave the
room till I am convinced of the truth of
your statement Why should Francis
meet Roue Gernon?"
"Why should Roso Gernon play the
part of a waiting maid at tho Fen inn?"
"How can I tell?"
"To further the schemes of the man
who is to marry yon, Miss Bellin. She
loves Jnm, and he loves her. ''
"No! I tell you it is impossible. I
trust him. I love him. Ho could not be
such a mean villain. "
"I can prove to you that what I say
"Do so, and I will believe it. If it is
truo," she muttered, clinching hor list,
if it is true, I shall bitterly punish
him for the deception. "
"Como with me tomorrow ovoniiig at
8 o'clock to Briarfleld's rooms in Jer
myu Btreet, and I'll engage you shall
see thorn together."
"If I thought no but, no," she said,
breaking off impetuously. "I cannot
como. How can I how can If"
"Ask Mrs. Bellin to como with you,"
"I cannot do that."
She looked at me strangely for a mo
ment then walked to tho other cud of
tho room. When sho roturnod, hor face
Was flushed with auger.
"Why do yon come hero with these
infamous tales, sir?" sho cried excited
ly. "I do not believe you. "
Put me to the proof. Come tomor
row evening, and you shall see for your
self." "You aro tho enemy of tho man I
"I am the bitter enemy of the man
who proteuds to love you because I be
liovo ho killed his brother. "
"Mr. Deuham, I could toll but, no,
no! I must bo silent."
"What do yon mean?" asked I ea
gerly, thinking she was about to reveal
her suspicions. Olivia thought for a few
moments, then put her hand suddenly
into miue. "I will be with you at a
quarter to 8 tomorrow, and if it is true
what you say oh, if it is truo!"
"Here is my card, " said I, forcing
it into her hand. "Wear a veil and
"I will he with you at n quarter to 8 to
morrow." como to my rooms in Dnko street. I
will await you at tho door, and wo will
go to tho chambers of this villain. "
"Ho is no villain."
"I say he is, Miss Bellin, and I'll
provo him to be so tomorrow. "
"Doit, "she said, fixing mo with a
glance, "and yon shall see how bitterly
I shall punish his treachery. Now go,
Mr. Douham, and moot mo tomorrow
evening as you havo arranged."
I bowed and left the room in silence.
As I passed through the door I looked
back and saw she had thrown herself
on the conch, crying bitterly. The sight
"Does she know anything, " I thought,
"or does she believe Felix is really
Francis? Well, when she and Rose Ger

" Castoria Is the best remedy for children of
