c THE SCRANTON TliTBTTNE-WEDNESDAY MORNING. AUGUST 29. 1891; ' WEMYSTOYCAK tP . CHAPTER XIL For tho niumt'iit I felt but little sur prise, as I thought Olivin was but mak ing the BAiue mistake Bho had mude forniorly. Yet when I noted that she kuew the tnio date of her lover's return and remarked the strange expression on tho face .of Roue I becamo instinctively convinced that she spoko tho truth. It was Francis Briarfield who stood before nio, and the dead man was Felix. How the change of personality had taken place I was nimble to guess, but never theless felt that it was tnio. ' Rose Gernon, with a look of disap pointed rage, was tho first to speak. She stamped her foot and laughed scorn fully. "This is ridiculous!" she said con temptuously. "It was Francis who died. Ho" 1 "Francis did not die, as you well know," interrupted the young man. "Felix fell into his own trap, and for safety I assumed his name. I believe you were aware of this all along." "How can that bo? And if I really did know you were Francis, why did yon not say so?" "Because I did not wish to betray myself. For aught I know you slew my brother and were quite oapablo of ac cusing mo of his murder." Rose evaded this question, and toss ing, her head, with a sneer, moved to ward tho door. Before she could reach it I blocked her passage. "Not yet, Miss Qeruou," said I mean ingly. "Though we have discovered Fe lix to be Francis, wo do not know how the former mot with his death. " "I cannot tall you." "I think ynu can," said Olivia quick ly, "seeing Felix, by your own confes sion, mado all arrangements with yon." "And yet Folix is dead," scoffed Rose. "Ho fell into his own trap.' "I don't know how he diod," she said resolutely. "As regards that I am as ignorant as you are, though I believe Francis killed hiin." "Ah I You then acknowledge me to te Francis?" "I acknowledge nothing. Let mo pass, Mr. Dnnhnm. I have to attend to my business." "Not till you toll mo where your so called father, Srrenr, is to be found." "I don't know," she said sullenly. ,'Yes, you do," persisted Olivia, "and you shall not leave this room till you tell all." "If I do not go to the theater, I shall be ruined. " "That does not mattor to us," said Francis mercilessly. The woman looked at our three faces, and seeing therein no hope of mercy compromised tho matter. "Lot me have a night to think over it," she entreated anxiously. "No," said Francis and Olivia in one breath. "You must tell all now. " "There is no time," she urged. "I am late as it is. I must go." "Let me speak, Briarfiold," I inter posod, seeing he was about to refuse again. "We do not want to make a public scandal of this as yet " Francis oonsulted Olivia with a look and turned to mo. "You know more about this case than anyone else," ho said quietly. "Miss Bellin and myself are quite pre pared to leave tho matter in your hands." "Very good. Tlion Miss Gernon can go to her duties. I undertake that she shall bo forthcoming tomorrow. Oh, yos, Miss Gernon," I added ironically, "I have made all my plans. Knowing yon were mixed up in this case, I en gaged a detective to look after you." "A detective!" she said, with a tor rifled look. . "Yesl One of the smartest detectives of Scotland Yard. Permit me to escort you to tho stage door of the theater and introduce you to this gentleman. Por form your part tonight and go home. Tomorrow come to these rooms at noon and tell us all you know. I am not afraid of your eseirping, as my detective Will watch you till we see you agaia " "Suppose I refusel" said Rose vicious ly. V "In that case I'll have you arrested at onoe as an accessory to the murdor cf Felix Briarfield."' , "You are too Btrong for me, "she said savagely. "I accept your condi tions. Tomorrow I'll come here at 12 o'clock. Can I go now?" "Certainly provided you accept me as your eacort." As you pleaso, " she replied disdain fully. "As for you. Miss Bellin," she added, turning toward Olivia, "I wish you joy of your bargain. That man is Francis Briarfield sure enough. I knew It all along and played on his fears for my own ends. He is a coward, and Fo ,111 was worth a dozen of him. For you, ,Jlr. Briarfiold, I have nothing but con tempt " With this parting shaft she sailed out Of the door, dosery followed by me. The detective was waiting on the other side of the street and followed us close Jry. Rose glanced uneasily from side to side, but not one word would she speak, nor did I wish her to talk, having quite oogn on my ruin a lor the. present en we axrived at the stave door of e Frfvnlitv thnahnr. aha hall a1 rm fha jstep. In tho light shed from the lamp above I could her scornful face. I "What I have promised I shall do,' jMr. Donhora," she said spitefully, "but jtomarrow I ean tell you nothing. With all your olevernuss as a spy you have discovered nothing but a mare's nest " I When she entered the theater, I turn ed voond to the doteotive, whom I found at my ellfiw. "You know what you have to do?" I said imperatively. "Yes, sir. I saw herfaoe in the light Yon can depend upon me. I shan't lose sight of her." "She is to ooma to Mr. Briarfleld's rooms tomorrow at noon. " t ."That's all right, sir. I'll see she is there," ' k Ha. W ib94 by V author ' "Good. Be very careful. She is a clever woman and would bufllo the devil himself." "She won't baffle me, M said the de fective confidently and so departed on his mission. Having thus providod for the safe keeping of Rose Gernon, I roturned to Briarfiold's rooms and found him alone. Miss Bellta had takon her departure during my abso.'ico. "Where is she?" I asked, glanoing round. "Olivia has gone home, " explained Francis. "If she is back bofore 9, her mother will never hear of this escapado, so I put her in a cab and sent her off. " "All the hotter," said L taking a seat "Now that we are alone I wish to hoar the story of your transformation from Francis to Felix. " "I told you I was Francis all along," he said reproachfully. "Yes, in suoh a way that I thought you were Felix," I answered ironically. "J told ycmlvud Francis all along," he nuid rzproachfuUy. "You mighthavo trusted me, Briarfield. It would havo bwu better for us alL " "I have no doubt it would," answer ed Francis gloomily, "but I was afraid lest yon should think I had killed Folix." "I knew you were incapable of such a thing." "Thank you," he said gratefully. "Had I known you were bo true a friend, I should have made you my con fidant. As it was, when I remembered my wild threats of killing Felix, I dreaded lest, finding him dead, you might accuse me of his murder. " "Who killed him?" "I don't know. When I saw him, be was dead." "And Streut and Rose?" "They had left the bouse." "What time was this?" "About 0 in the morning." "And I was not up till 10 o'clock. You had plenty of time to fly. But what put it into your head to place the dead body of Folix in your bed?" "It's a long story, and I hardly know if you will understand my mo tives." "Yes, I da You were afraid of being accused of the crime. It was foolish of you to mistrust me. I would have aided rather than blamed you." "I see that now. It was kind of you to try to avenge my death. Unfor tunately all your industry was danger ous to mo, and I had to bafllo it " "You certainly did so very adroitly. But tell me the story. I am anxious to know what took place. " Francis was quite unnerved by the late interview and before continuing poured himself out a glass of braudy. Then, pushing tho bottle toward me, he began his strange narrative without fur ther preamble "Wheu I went to bed that night," he said slowly, "I conld not sleep for ever so long. I kept wondering if your the ory could poHsibly be true about the treachery of Felix. If it were, I consid ered how I should punish my brother. While thus thinking I foil asleep and didn't wake up till close on 6 o'clock in the morning. All my tronbles came on me with full force, and you know how much worse things look at tjiat hour than in broad daylight There was no chance of further sloop, so I put on my clothes and went down stairs. The first thing I saw was my brother Folix lying dead on the floor. " "Had you any idea who killed him?" "Not the slightest I thought it was either Strwit or the girl so I went in search of thorn. They had fled, for I found my horse gone, so this flight con firmed me in my suspicion. At first I determined to wake you up and explain all, but remembering my foolish talk of the previous night I thought you might think me guilty of my brother's death. " "That was a foolish idea. " "Well, put yourself in my place, and you would have thought as I. " . "Not a bit of It I should have had more moral courage. " "I hadn't at that moment I thought you would denounce me and I would be hanged, so took steps to secure my own safety. I went outside and found ray brother's horse at the side of the house. Strait and bis daughter had tak en mine and overlooked my brother's in the hurry of thetr guilty flight I saw a means of escape and took it " "But what about the substitution of yourself for Felbtf" "I did that to throw off the scent I guessed that your idea was right and that Felix was masquerading as I, so thought I might go back with safety as myself. Felix was far cleverer than I, and it was certain that he bad provided some reaaoay for the absonoe of his real self while he passed himself off as me. The whole plot unrolled itsolf in a mo ment bofore me, and I saw in carrying it through lay my only chance of safety. " "It would have been far easier to have trusted to my friendship. " "I see that now," said Francis peni tently, "but I did not then. I wanted to leave the house without your wak ing, so took the body of Felix softly up stairs, undressed it and laid it in my bod. Then I folded up my clothes on the chair beside the bed and dressed myself in bis suit " "And the pearl ring?" "I had to vart with that so as to car ry ont tho deception; therefore I stopped it on the finger of the dead man. Then I locked the door of my bedroom and came down stairs again. In a few min utes I was on my way to Marehmin ster." "How did yoa get the horse back to Fundy's stables, and what made ysn think of going to Bellin Hall?" "As to the first, I found Fnndy's name on tho saddle, so knew Felix had hired the horse. I took it baok to the stables, and, owing to my resemblance to Folix, easily managed to dijeive the hoetler. Then, as Felix in hisStter had told me he was staying at Bellin Hall, I went there." "Was there any suspicion?" "Nono at all. I told a footman I had been out for a morning rido and asked him to bring nie a brandy and soda to my room. I needed the drink after all I had gone through, but my principal reason for asking him was to find out my room." "Howbo?" "Well, I mado him carry the tray up stairs iu front of mo. Of course he took it to tho room of Felix, and thus I gain ed my point without exciting suspicion. All tho haggago, clothes, etc, of Folix were in the room. I knew all about them, as I had seen them plenty of times. Then I dressed in a morning suit and wont down stairs to find Olivia. " "Did she guess the truth?" "Not at first, but she saw there was something wrong as sho kept referring to events of tho previous week about which I know nothing. Luckily Mrs. Bellin did not come down to breakfast, so I was able to tell her all when the servants left the room. " "Had she recognized that Felix was masquerading as you?" "She had more or less, bntwasnot quite certain. Whon I told her all that had occurred, she believed me at once. In some instinctive way she knew that I was really her lover. Then we set to work to concert measures for my safety. Olivia told me Felix was supposed to be in Paris at the Hotel des Etraiigers and showed me his letters, so it was decided as wisest to keep up that fiction. She told me all that had taken place dnring my absence, and by the time you came I was thoroughly fitted into the skin of Felix." "Then I came and insisted you were Felix." "Yos. You see, I told the truth, and so did Olivia, whon I said I was Francis. But of course, as I had changed clothes with the dead man, we saw where you were making your mistake. I never thought you'd take my death so much to heart." "Seeingthat, Briarfield, you ought to have told me all." "Olivia suggested as much, but I was afraid. When yon asked mo to ride out and see the inn, I asked for a night's grace in order to get rid of the body. I rode out during the night and threw it into a pool near the inn. " "I know that pool, " said I grimly, "and traced yonr trail thereto. " "I am afraid I did it badly," said Francis, with a shudder. "It was a hor rible task, yet necessary, as I thought whon yon saw no body tho next day yon would think it was a dream or a hal lucination." "I did very nearly," I answered gravely. "And what about Paris?" "Oh, that, was very easy I When you said you were going there to look up Felix, I followed you to Loudou by the same train and crossed over to Pains at onna At tho Hotel des Etraiigers I found Felix liad bribed tho malinger to send on those letters to Olivia. He, of course, thought I was Felix and talked quite openly before mo. Felix had in vented a very ingenious plot to eulist the manager in his service. What it was I need not tell you, but I told the manager what I wanted, and he did it Well. Of coumo I paid hiin lavishly. " "Yon mean ho deceived me by say ing you had been six weeks in Paris?" "Yes, mid about my going to Italy. Of course wheu you saw me you thought I was really Felix, and that you were out of yonr mind." "How could I do otherwise when your statements were backed up by the manager? I did not know what to make of it " "Well, that's all I havo to toll, "said Francis, "and a lot of trouble it has been. I wish I had told you all at first. " "What about Rose Uernoii?" ' "Oh, she friend nio out and made be lieve I was Felix. She wanted to many me, as yon saw. I had great trouble with her." "Wo'll settle her tomorrow," said I grimly. "But, now, Francis, who do you think killed your brother?" "I can't say. I don't even know how he died." "He died," said I, "from a wound in the hand inflicted by a poisoned ar rowhead which was taken from Bellin Hall." "And who wounded hiin?" demand ed Francis, turning pale. "We'll find that out tomorrow," I answered, "from Rose Strent, alias Rose Gernon." TO BE CONTINUED. I -arcr. Something of b Paradox.

But an apparently slight sprain, causing, beyond tne arm pain, no uibcomiorr, ior remaps twenty-four hours, may, without proper care, become sorely troublesome for months.
