THE SCI? ANTON TEIBUNE T LTESDAY MORNING. AUGUST 28, 1894.

. .mlSv ETC.
My interview with Olivia passed off
tetter thun I expected. If she had or
dered me out of the house, I wonld only
have looked on it as the jnst punish
ment for what innst hare appeared my
impertinent interference in what did
not concern me. The very fact that she
listened so qnietly proved that she sus
pected Felix was masquerading as her
lover, She could only be assurod of this
ly overhearing his interview with Rose
Gemou and therefore accepted my in
Titatioa to go to the Jermyn street
rooms. If their tenant was Francis, he
would resent the intrusion of Rose, hut
if Folis the two confederates would
doubtless talk of their guilty secrot
Thanks to a sovereign judiciously bo
ttowed on the carokaepor, I had discov
ered that Rose Gernon intended to visit
Felix at 8 o'clock. How the carekoepcr
found out I do not know, but in somo
mysterious way servants seem to gain
all information concerning the doings
of thoir Ruperiors. It sufficed for mo
that Rose would be in the rooms of
Folix on this evening, and that Olivia
would catch them in a trap. I had no
pity for the guilty pair, but I was gen
uinely sorry for Olivia. Sho little knew
the torturo she was about to undergo. I
did and almost regretted that I had in
terfered in the matter. However, I con
soled myself with the reflection that it
was bettor for ber to suffer a few hours'
pain than lifelong misery.
That she agreed to go to Jermyn
treet at that hrmr without a chaperon
proved how dewrous she was of learning
the truth. Delicately nurtured, gently
bred, she must have felt horrified at the
risk sho was running of losing her good
name, but seeing that her life's happi
ness depended upon knowing all she
flung etiquette to the winds and came.
When I found her at the foot of the
stairs at 8 o'clock, I admired and re
spected her from the bottom of my
"Am I late?" she asked, touching my
hand with trembling fingers.
"Only flvo minutes," Baid I, looking
at my watch. "I have been waiting at
the head of the stairs for that time.
However, we can soon walk round to
Jermyn street "
"Do you think any one will know
me, Mr. Denham?" said Olivia, taking
my arm. "Sco, I have on a plain dress,
and this veil is a thick ona"
"No oue will recognize yon," I an
swered soothingly. "Nor do I think yon
will moot any one of your acquaint
"I should have brought my mother
but that I wished her to know nothing
of this treachery. If I find I have been
deoeived, I shall break off my engage
ment with Francis. But you will keep
silent about my visit, will you not, Mr.
"No one shall hear a word from mo,"
I answered earnestly. "But keep up your
spirits, Kiss Bollin. Even if you find
yon have been deceived there will be
some consolation in knowing that it is
Felix aud not Franois."
"You are wrong there," she replied
positively. "It is Francis. I have told
you so all along."
I shrugged my shonldors without re
ply. Evidently nothing could shake her
faith in tho man. All I could hope for
was that the two confederates would
"What are you going to do, Mr. Den
ham?" asked Olivia anxiously.
"We will go up to the rooms of Bri
arfield, " I answered, 'and there overhear
their con vernation. "
"Is that not dishonorable?" she said,
"In most oases it would be, " I replied
hastily, "but it does not do to be too
particular In this matter. If yon break
in on them, they may deny everything.
Thinking tley are alone, you will hear
tho truth. Remember, Miss Bollin,
when one deals with a villain one
must beat him with his own weapons.
Depend upon it, it is most necessary that
we should learn all. "
"They can speak of nothing I do not
"Are you aware of the truth?" said
I, somewhat startled by this remark.
"'I am aware of the truth," she re
peated slowly, and before I could ques
tion her she flitted up the stairs. There
was no time for me to ponder over her
words, as it was now past 8 o'clock,
and Rose Gernon might doscond at any
time. I therofore spoke a few hasty
words to the caretaker, telling him I
Wishod to see Mr. Briarflcld, and fol
lowed her at once. In two minutes wo
were both standing before the door of
"It is locked," said Olivia faintly.
"Never mind," answered I, produc
ing my latchkey. "This koy of mine
opens the door. I was, as yon are aware,
a great friend of Franois and learned
that my key fitted the lock of his rooms
some time ago. I have not forgotten
the circumstances, bo it oomcs in use
ful now. Seol'l
I turned the key, and the door open
ed noiselessly. Motioning to Miss Bel
lin to precede me, I followed her quiot
ly and closed the door behind us. We
hoard the murmur of voices in the sit
ting room. She as well as I knew its
whoreabonts thoroughly. The door was
slightly ajar, and in front of it stretch
ed a tall screen, with fretwork at the
Stepping through the open door in a
gingerly manner, we placed ourselves
dirwotly behind the screen, so could both
see and hear without danger of being
observed. Thus far our enterprise had
soooeeded in tho most successful man
ner, and nothing remained for ns to do
but to listen to the important conversa
tion now taking place.
Felix, standing with his back against
the mantelpiece, looked anxious and an
gry, while Rose Gernon, her hands on
the table, faced him fiercely. Evidently
the conversation was not progressing in
, satisfactory manner to either.
"Nol" she was saying rapidly. "I ao

doggedly. "You know that as well as

who made an involuntary movement.
"I toll you, Rose, there is some mis
take," Baid Felix angrily.
"You mean spirited hound!"
"I am a mean spirited hound," ho
answorcd wearily. "No ono knows that
better than I do. "
"Some women," continued Rose, not
heeding his interruption, "some women
would have you killed. I am not a wo
man of that kind. I'll stay and marry
"Impossible I am to marry Miss
" You promised to give up Miss Bel
lin if I helped you to see your brother
at the Feu inn."
"My God!" muttered Olivia, trem
"Hush! I whispered. "Now wo
shall hear the truth. "
"I have changed my mind," retorted
Felix in answer to the last romark of
"That may be, but I have not, Mr.
Felix Briarflcld. I fulfilled my promise
and wont down with Strent to that
lonely inn. Your brother came, aud you
know that ho never left it again. I have
fulfilled my promise. I now require you
to fulfill yours and make me your wife. "
"I cannot! I cannot!" ho said in a
faint voice, wiping his brow. "For
heaven's sake, take this money I offer
you and leave me."
"I have mixed myself up with crime
for your sako, and you offer to put me
off with money. It is usoless. Your
promise I have, and that promise I re
nire yon to keep, or elso"
"I'll tell the truth to the police. "
"And thus involve yourself in ruin
"I don't caro," she said sullenly.
"Anything would be better than the tor
ture I am enduring at your hands."
"And what will you toll the police?"
asked Felix in an unnatural voice.
"You know well enough. I shall teU
them how you killed your brother."
"It is falsol" he said passionately,
"I neither saw nor laid a finger on my
"Indeed! Then if you are innocent
tfho is guilty?"
"I don't know."
"Did ybn not come to tho Fen inn on
that fatal night when Francis camo?"
'Yes, bnt I never saw him. "
"You saw him and killed hiin."
"It is a lie!" .
It was neither Felix nor Rose who
spoke, but Olivia, who, in spite of all I
"J am a mean apirited hnund," he an
could do, broke on tho astonished pair.
The man advanced toward her, but she
waved him back.
"I defend yon, sir," she said proud
ly, "because I know that this woman
speaks falsely, but I havo also to do
man d an explanation from you. "
Felix paid no attention to the remark,
but simply stared at her in a stupefied
"Olivia," ho said in a low voice,
"bow did you como here?" i
"I brought her, Mr. Felix Briarflcld, "
said I, stepping forward.
"You, Denham! And for what rea
son?" I pointed to Rose Gernon, who stood
quietly by, with a malignant smile on
"Thore is the reason," I retorted
meaningly, "and Miss Bellin"
"Miss Bollin will speak for herself,"
said Olivia in a peremptory tone.
"Miss Bellin speaks of what she does
not understand, " interposed Rose ven
"Because I deny that Francis killed
Felix?" questioned Olivia.
"No, because you deny Felix killed
"What do you mean, Miss Gernon?"
I aked rapidly.
"I mean that this man whom Miss
Bellin thinks is her lover Francis is Fe
lix Briarfield, and Folix Briarfield,"
she continued, "is my lover. "
"No!" said Felix hurriedly. "It is
not true!" '
I expected to see Olivia grow angry,
but in place of this a bright smile irra
diated hor face as she looked at Felix.
I oould not conjecture the meaning of
hor action and began to grow uneasy.
Rose also looked anything but comfort-
abla Evidently she had met with her
match in Olivia.
"I overheard part of your conversa
tion," said Olivia, addressing her point
"Very honorablo, I am sure," retort
ed Rose, with a sneer.
"Honor is thrown away on women
like yon," answered Olivia scornfully.
"I am glad I listened, for it enables me
to protect the man I love against your
"That is not the man you love, said
Rose spitefully. "He lies in the marshes
surrounding the Fen inn, slain by the
hand of his brother. " - .,
"That is not true I swear it is not
true!" cried Felix, approaching nearer
"Be quiet, Francis," she said quick
ly. "Let us hear what she has to say. "
"I have to say that Felix Briarfield
loved me," cried Rose angrily. "He
loved me long before he ever saw you,
but when you crossed my path he want
ed to leave me. He impersonated his
brother Francis, who was at that time
in America, and yon, poor fool, did not
discover the deception. "
"You are quite right. Ididnot," re
pliod Olivia calmly. "Go on."
' ' When his brother Franois came back
this month, he thought all would be
discovered and implored me to save
him. He told me of a plan whereby he
intended to decoy his brother to the Fen
inn on pretext of explanation. There he
intended to kill him."
Olivia mude no romark, but placed
her hand within that of Felix. I won
dered she could do so, seeing that he
was accusod by his accomplice of a hid
eous crime, and made no denial.
"I wont down to tho Feu inn with a
mau called Strent"
"That was not his real name," I in
terrupted. "How do you know that?" she said
"Never mind. I know that it is so. "
"I decline to tell his real name," said
Rose, darting a furious look at ma ."I
call him Strent, and by that name you
know him and knew me at the Fen

"You aro too meddlesome, Mr. Den
ham, " she said coolly, "and would do
better to mind your own business."
"Scarcely whou I have discovered so
vilo a crime."
"It was he who committed it," said
Rose malignantly, pointing to Felix,
"He came to the inn and killed his
"It is a lie!" cried Felix in despair.
"I laid no hand on my brother. I did
not oven see him. "
"Wait one moment, Miss Gernon, be
fore yon make this accusation," said
Olivia? "You say that Felix is your
"And you promised to assist him in
removing Francis if he married you?"
"For what reasou when the removal
of Francis would enable Felix to marry
me under his false name?"
"He promised not to do so, and I
thought if I helped him to kill Francis
I could force him to marry ma"
"You love him greatly?"
"I love him better than any one else,
in tho world. "
"I am sorry for that," said Olivia,
with a touch of pity, "because Felix is
"Felix dead!" said Rose incredulous
ly. "Then who is the mau?"
"This mau is my lover, Francis Bri
arfield, who returned from Chilo on the
6th of June."
TO BE CONTINUED.
The PolMin of the Moiqulto.
Mr. G. Dim mock, one of the most, recent
experimenters with culicea, forcibly says:
"I am convinced that there is use made of
a poisonous saliva, for when biting, if the
mosquito fails to druvr blood, which it of
tuu does on the hack of my baud, it may
have inserted its proboscis nearly full
length in from one to six directions in
the smne place and withdrawn its pro
boscis; Indeed, it may have inserted ita
proboscis, as often occurs, in extremely
sensitive parts, yet in such cases,, if no
blood be drawn, no more effect is produced
upon my skin than is produced by the prick
of a sharp needle; a red point appears, only
to disappear in a few hours.
"Certainly there has been as much tear
ing of tissues in such a case as there is
when the gnat settles on a place richer in
blood, iiuil with a single probing draws its
fill." He remarks also that "the poisonous
effect ou me, as proved by numerous ex
periments, is in direct proportion to the
length of tinittwhich thenat lius occupied
in actuully drawing blood," and argues,
perhaps somewhat iuconseqiiently, that
this indicates the constant outpouring of
some sort of poisonous fluid during the
blood sucking process. But notwithstand
ing this he was unable to detect any chan
nel for the conveyance of poison into he
And, moreover, it is difficult to conceive
of a double flow of liquid poison downward
and blood upward as taking pluce sim
ultaneously withiu the narrow compass of
the proboscis of a gnat or a mosquito. Or,
again, if the movements were not simul
taneous, but a downllow of poison were
followed by an updraftof blood, it would
seem that the greater part of the poison
would bo sucked out of the wound almost
ns soon s it was instilled, and that, there
fore it could Jiardly exercise much influ
ence upon surrounding tissues. Knowl

A capital story is told of a shorthand
clerk who wanted his boy entered in a cer

Knowing that the school master would be
able to decipher it, the father, to save time,
wrote the message in shorthand, lie meant
to say, "Dear Sir I have decided to enter

did say was, "Dear Sir I have decided to

Relative Importance to Life of Sleep and

aud is gonerally applied to somebody
Whoso pet indulgence Is different from our
own. As a matter of fact, it is a question
whether It bettor describes the person
who makes necessities of luxuries or the
ono who makes luxuries of nreossities.
Ono's sympathy Is naturally moroenKagi'd
by the latter individual, since as he or
she, for present purposes must havo ne
cessities, she may us well have them uf tho
best kind. There is something moro rea-
sonablo in the idea that a womnn demands
tho very liest sort of bread and butter than
that she insists that sho cannot live with
out trullles and champagne every day.
Bread and butter aro necessities and truf
fles and champagne are not.
But the tending of these remarks Is
meant to bo toward tho subject of beds.
Beds are a necessity, and too often a stern
necessity, unyielding ns fate. An aston
ishing number of liuuie peepers wear pretty
clothes, set their table with pretty dishes
and arrango an agreeable bill of faro for
their guests, but condemn thorn to sleep
on a mattress stuffed with Iron filings and
pillows like a dry meal poultice. Tho bed
linen being fresh and an allowance of ex
tra coverings being provided, everything
is supposed to bo satisfactory.
But it is better to have the guest's couch
an uncomfortnhlo one than that of a mem
ber of the family, which is occupied every
night. Tho moro tlrusomo nnd trying
ono's daylight hours are, tho more ono re
quires complete rest nnd relaxation at
night on a bed that will not keep ono
awake with aching bones, nnd with pil
lows that uro thoroughly substantial. Wo
all know that sleep Is morn Important to
the preservation of life and houlth than
is even food. Hotter Is a dinner of herbs
with n soft bed to rotiro to afterward than
a stalled ox that must be digested on a
couch of stone. The moral of this Is: If you
are a worker of any sort, with brain or
hand, Indulge yourself with a good spring
bed and hair mattress even If you hnvo to
go without two new gowns to pay for
them, for you need nil tho ease possiblo at
night in order that nature may oxerclso
her recuperative powors.

Many oyster sbuckcrs suffer from an In

by slight abrasions from bits of shelf and

hot platinum wire. The pain of this oper
ation is said Co be very slight. -Exchange,
Mosquitoes and Cattle.
As may be imagined from their habits
and life history, mosquitoes are not equal
ly distributed in countries in which they
ocenr. In low lying, marshy districts they
are more abundant, but as one recedes
from the water or reaches greater eleva
tions they become less numerous. They
attack not only human .beings, but also
cattle, and hence tne proximity of "llioKP
ter in places muoh infested may sometimes
give relief to men. Oa tho other hand,
they have often been noticed accompany
ing cattle on their return from marshy
pastures, clustering ronnd them, and
thus becoming ultimately introduced into
History supplies a great many cases In
which men b,ve changed their nationality
very suddenly in order to serve personal
purposes, but no case is recorded, perhaps,
where one has changed so often as a cer
tain railroad conductor who serves on a
line connecting France and Germany.
This functionary changes his nationality
twice a day.
An American traveler who was riding
on the train between Basle and Bel fort re
lates that, shortly after pussing out of
Swiss into German territory, he had occa
sion to ask the chief of the train some ques
tion about the journey, and put the in
quiry in French.
"Nein, neinl" said the conductor.
"Spreechen Sie Deutsehl" (No, no, speak
The American asked his question In the
best German lie could muster aud receiv
ed an answer iu that language.
Before long the train had traversed the
narrow belt of German territory and enter
ed France. The traveler again hadoccasion
to make an inquiry and this time address
ed the same conductor iu German.
"Monsieur," said tho cldef of the train,
politely, "je ne parle que Francais." (I
speak nothing but French.)
As the man had to retrace his steps and
become a German again before he went to
bed, his changes, it is plain, came much
oftencr than those of the famous vicar of
Bray, who changed his religion half a
dozen times under as many governments.
"Because," as he explained, "he was re
solved, no matter who was king, to live
and die the viiar of Bray."
