THE SCItANTON TRIJJU2TE THURSDAY MORNING. AUGUST 30, 18U4.
Af tor all, it is true that tho unex
pected nlwiys happens. In my nnravol
iug of tho Feu inn mystery I nftver for
a monimt expoctud to find that Francis
was alive. I was evon ignorant that
Felix hrwi been to the inn on that night
IIo had ri.ldon round tho back way of
tho houso, and as my room was over
the front door I had not heard his ar
rival. Under those circumstances it
v easy for' me to make tho mistake
and think tho dead man wan Francis,
particularly as I was luinled by tho
marvelous rosouiblauoe between tho
brothers, and, moreover, paw the pearl
ring on tho finger of the corpse. My
mistake was a perfectly excnsablo one,
and I had been confirmed in such tr
reonotis belief by the adroit fashion in
which Franois, for his own safety, kept
up tho deception.
Now I Iniew tho truth that Francis
was alive and Felix dead yet as regards
tho name of the nan who had commit
ted tho crime I was still quito in tho
dark. Eoso Gernou know, bnt it was
Questionable whether she would con fess,
even to save her own ckin. Either she
or Streut was the guilty person, as none
other was in tho inn at that time, Strent
had vanished, but no doubt sho knew
his whereabouts. The question was
whether she would tell.
"Oh; she'll tell where ho is, right
enough, " said Merrick, to whom I put
this view of tlio matter, "especially if
Eho is guilty herself. "
"You don't think sho is the criminal,
"Thero is no reason why sho should
not bo," ho replied argumentatively.
"She had every reason to hate Folix
Eriarfield. He had promised to nmrry
her and wan engaged to Olivia. Quito
enough reason thero for a jealous wom
an such .is sho seems to be. "
, "Eut she wanted Felix to kill his
brother, so that sho might force him to
"Yes, but that little arrangement did
not come off. My idea is that she saw
Felix when ho arrived at tho inn and
asked him straight out if ho had ar
rgod to. marry Olivia. Sho would
hear of tho engagement while passing
through Marshminster on her way to
tho lone inn. No donbt Felix liod about
the matter, and she lost her temper. It
may bo that sho did not intend to kill
him, but having tho poisoned arrowhead
in her hand had forgot how dangerous
it was and throw herself on him. Ho
put out his hand to koep her off, and
so was wounded. Then he died, and, ter
rified at what the consequences might
be, sho and Strait left the inn.
"But what about her blackmailing
"Sho guessed what Francis had done
And saw a ohauoo of securing hor aims
by putting the murder on to him. IIo
had so compromised himself by his fool
ish actions that of coorso he was afraid
to denounce her. "
"Still, why did she want to marry
him? She loved Felix, not Franois. "
"lVs my opinion she loved neither of
them," said Merrick dryly, "andsimply
wanted to marry for respectability."
"Do you think she will denounce
"Sho'll denounce any ono to save her-
"Won't yon come and hear her con
, "Not I. A resectable practitionor
like myself has no business to be mixed
np in such criminality. Hitherto I have
been the sleeping partner in this affair,
And yon have carried through my ideas
excellently well. Continue to do so and
then come and toll me all about it. "
"Very pleasant for you," I grum
bled, "bat I havo all the hard work."
'Merriok laughed and pnphed me out
of the door. He had a don patients
Waiting and could spare no inoro time.
He said one last word before I left.
"Oh, by the way, Denham," said ho,
lifting a warning forefiugor, "don't
yon trvut that Rose Gcmon in the loast
I've been making inquiries about her,
and she bus a black record about tho
worst in London, I should say."
On my way to Jennyn street I won
dered how lie had gained this informa
tion. A specialist of Merrick's stand
ing does not go round making inquiries
about loose charaoters. Yet I knew he
epoko tho trnth. His faculty for learn
ing things wan marvelous. Decidedly,
Merrick ahonld have been a detective.
His opinion about Iiose Gernon coinoid
ed with miiio. One had only to look in
hor face to see what sho was.
At Jcrmyn street I found Francis
eagerly waiting my arrival.
"I've sent down to the Marshminster
police," said ho quickly, "and instruct
ed them to drag the pool near the Fen
"I am afraid you'll get into trou
ble over that, Briarfield, '
"I don't care, " said Francis dogged
ly. "I have been a coward too long.
Had I trusted yon and told all there
would pd um been this trouble. If
tho police arrest mo, they can just do
so, and I'll leave it to you to see mo
"1 hope we'll loam the trnth from
Hose today." '
("It's possible, but not probable. Sho'll
lie like the devil, whoso daughter she
"I'm not too sure of that If she is
fruitless, sho'll be only too anxious too
save her own neck , Why should she
fiik her liberty for the sake of this man
Strent? Who it he?"
"I havon't the least idea. "
"Then we'll make Eose toll today or
havo her arrestod ."
"There is not sufficient evidence
gainst her, ',' objected Franois.
"Yes there ig. I'll take the risk of all
that. Before Eose Gernon loaves this
room she has to confess the truth. It's
your only ohunoe of safety. "
"But yon don't believe I killed Fe
lix?" , "I don't, but the police may. You
forgot low highly suspicious all your
actions have boon. Rose knows you
havo been passing as your brother and
will bo r'ivo to mako capital out of it."
"You'll see me through, Denham?"
he said, taking my lituid
"You con bs sure of that," I answer
ed, shaking it heartily. "I won't rest
till you are safe and the murderer of
your brother is in jail."
"Who killed him, do you think?"
"I don't know, but Rose does, and
we'll make her tell. "
Wo discussed tho matter extensively,
Jiut neither of us could ooruo to any
conclusion. Whon the clock struck
noon, Rose Gernou, true to her appoint
ment, walked into the rfoin. Without
waitiug for an invitation she Bat down
in a chair and scowled at mo.
"That man of yours is outside, " she
said savagely. "He's been following
me about everywhere and watching my
houso all night. Perhaps you'll ask
him to go away."
"That depends on the result of this
conversation. You're not out of dan
ger yet, Miss. Uoriion."
"I am not aware that I wa3 ewr in
danger, Mr. Denhani. Aro yon going
to accuse mo of killing Filix?"
"I might even do that unless you tell
"Oh!" said she with a sneer, "is
that your game, sir? Thon suppose I do
tell tho truth and say you killed Felix?"
"You're quite capable of doing so,
but no ono would believosowild a tale.
I had no reiison to kill Felix Briar
field." "Then what motive had I for so do
ing?" "That's best known to yonrsolf, " I
answered tartly, weary of nil this fonc
ing. "It is waste of time talking like
this," interrupted Francis. "Y must
bo nwr.re, Miss Gernon, that you stand
in a very dangerous position. "
"Not moro so than you do yourself,"
she replied, with superb iuolenca
"Pardon me, I think otherwise. By
yonr own confession you went down to
tho Feu inn to assist my brother in get
ting me out of the way. You said that
last night before two witnesses Miss
Bellin and Mr. Denham."
"I talked at random," she muttered.
"I did not intend that any crimo should
be committed. "
"Perhaps not. Nevertheless my broth
er i9 dead, and yon know how he died."
"I know tho cause of his death, but
I do not know who killed him."
"If yon know one thing, you must
know tho other."
"I do not When Folix arrived, ho
showed Strent aud I an arrowhead
which ho said was poisoned. "
"Is this the arrowhead?" I asked,
producing it out of a thick piece of pa
per. "Yes. Whore did you get it?"
"I found it in tho ashes of the fire
place, where yon threw it."
"That is not truo,"said Miss Gernon
angrily. "I did not throw it into tho
fireplace. I never evon had it in my
hnnd. The idoa that it was poisoned
frightened mo. "
"Pray go on with your story, Miss
"I seo yon don't beliove mo," she
flashed ont defiantly, "but I am tolling
exactly what took place. Felix said ho
was going to kill his brother with tho
poisoned arrowhead. I told him I wonld
have nono of that sort of tiling; that I
only consented to piny tho part of a
waiting maid in order to deceive his
brother into a meeting. I said Franois
could marry Miss Bellin, and he was
to marry mo."
"And after that?"
"Ho jewed and said ho inteuded to
mnrry Miss Bollin. Then I grew angry
and struck hiin. "
She was in real earnest, for her mouth
was set, and her bunds wero clinched,
not n pretty sight by any means I re
membered Merrick's idea and conceived
that it might ho possibje tho woman
before me had killed the man who flout
ed ho,T not intentional l-, but in a fit
of blind rage.
"You struck him with the arrow
head?" I hinted.
"No, I didn't. Ho had laid that
down on tho table. I strnck him with
open palm and said if he killed his
brother I would denonnce him to tho
authorities as a murderer. Then ho
wonld go to the scaffold instead of tho
altar with Miss Bellin."
"What did ho say?"
"Nothing at first Then I saw a look
pass between him and Strent, and
they seemed to understand ono anoth
er. Felix said he wonld return to Marsh
minster and let his brother many Miss
Bellin. I did not thon know he had
been pacsing himself off as you, "sho
added, turning to Francis. "If I had,
I wonld havo guessed that he was ly
ing. As it was, I thought ho spoke the
truth and kissed him. Then I went to
"And afterward?" said Francis, see
ing sho punsed.
"Well, I never saw Folix again till
he wa dead."
"In the morning?"
"No. An hour after I loft him.
Strent knockod at my bedroom door
and asked me to come down. I
guessed by his voico he was afraid, so
dressed hurriedly and came down
stairs. Felix was lying dead by the
table. I could not see Strent aud
went to look for him. He was out at
the back door mounting Francis horse.
I asked him whore he was going, and
he said Felix was dead, and ho did sot
want to stay in order to be accused of
the crime. '
"Did he say ho had killed him?"
"No, nor bad I time to ask him. He
went off at a gallop and left me alone
with tho body. I was horribly afraid,
as I thought yon or Francis would
wake up and aooui-o me of the crime.
Besides I conld not account for my pres
ence in that house without suspicion,
so I put on my hat and oloalc and fled
to Marshminster. "
"How did yon fly?"
"There wero a trap and horso in which
Strent and I had brought provisions to
the inn. I harnesnwi the horse and
drove back to Marshminster. There I
returned it to the owners and went back
to London by the early train."
"What became of ritmit?"
"I don't kuow. I havo never set eye3
on him since,"
"Do you think he killed Felix?"
"Yen. I believe they had a row, aud
he killod him. But he did not admit

"How is it that ticket sellers on a small
salary can afford to live so well?" repeated
the veteran theatrical mau after me.
"Why, my boy, it. is simple enough. Stand
in tlio box oltice of a large theater any
night and you will understand it. You see.
a large part of the seats are sold within
half an hour lieforn each performance.
That means the handling of a great deal of
money la a very short time. In the rash a
great many people are bound to gnt, ex
cited and forget all about how much
money Uiey have and how ninch elvinge
they should get back. Their carelessness
is the ticket seller's gain. Not that he
does anything wrong or that there is any
thing approucbing to cheating.
"For instance, an e.xnited man rushes np
to the window after tike curtain has gone
up, throws down a ten dollar bill and
asks for five seats, lie should get buck
two dollars and a half in change. But as
soon as the tickets are handed him ho
grabs thera and rushes Into the theater.

"This happens once or twice in the course
of the night, and that Is the reason why
ticket sellers have a much better income
than moot folks suppose.
"Ticket wW, for u circus is still more
profitable. 1 knew n man who once offered
a large royalty for the privilege of running
the ticket wftffon of a big circus.
"Of course the ticket seller only turns
over to the managers as much money as
sold tickets eull for. The rest he keeps,
for he Iihh no way of knowing who it
reelly does belong to. Of course, if the

Victor Made the Tenth Nile in 8:30.
My mlud wanders back through an in
terval of years to a dny in the long ago,
before the majority of the present genera
tion of racegoers wero born, and to a race
that was at that day sensational, and ene
that would tomorrow draw such a crowd
as would (111 the coders ot the association
giving it as they were never before filled.
The race wits at ten miles (not ten heats,
remember) for a purse of 110,000, and the
horses that measured strides were the t rot
ter Prince, driven by the late Hiram Wood
ruff, and the pacer Hero, handled by the
renowned George Spicur. The meeting
took place on the old Ceutreville course in
the full of 18iS. I ran remember the day
quite distinctly. The weather was fine,
the atmosphere clear, cool and bracing.
Within the grounds and in the trees and
Dn knolls surrounding were assembled
fully 10.000 persons, who came from far
and near to see the event that bad been
held in lively anticipation for months.
Among the throng that paokec! the stand
and overflowed the lawn were politicians
of national prominence, lawyers of great
repute, solid men of business, sportingmeu
pure and simple, and even clergymen, and
ladies (God bless 'cm). And what would
yon say today to see men at the truck
dressed in swullow tail coats, with wide
expanse of shirt bosom, and cravats that
could in an emergency he used as tuble
covers. That was the way we dressed in
18.)3, and the wide brimmed tiles worn then
would appear ludicrous now.
Tin: riiisT two miles.
The race was called about 3 o'clock. The
track was la excellent order, and the horses
appeared in superb condition, trained, as
we say now, to the miuute. Hero was the
favorite, and $100 to ?75 was staked on him,
probably to the amount of $40,000 or J50,
000, in those days considerable money.
The judges oalled tho drivers up to the
stand and slated tho conditions of the race
and cautioned them in much the same
manner sometimes practiced nowadays re
garding any violation of rules, and then
they wore given the start, the pacer having
the polo and lending round the first turn.
In my mind's eye I can see the race as plain
ly as though it were but yesterday instead
of noarhjjforty years ago.
On thu buckstretch the pacer waited for
the trotter and let him come alougsido, it
being apparent at this early stage that
Spicer did not intend to go uny faster than
Hiram would make him, at the same time
keeping the latter on the outside all the
way round, thereby makiug him go a
greater distance in the race. They kept
side by Hide until they reached the lower
turn, whon Hiram pulled in behind Hero
and waited until be reached straight work
on the homestretch, while he came out, and
the two came to the stand with the wheels
of their sulkies as elose together as it was
possible to get thera without touching.
The first mile was done in 3:44.
On the second mile Hirnm, seeing
through Spicer'g tactics, began to crowd
him. The pace of both horses now became
accelerated, and it was evident that Hiram
intended to foree his adversary to a break
down, believing presumably that his horse
would prove the better stayer. Spicer
kept the pucer well in hand, and would not
go any faster than he was absolutely com
pelled to. The trottor auin fell in behind
on the lower turn, and again made a brush
up the homestretch, the pair coming to the
stand bead and head. The time for this
mile was 2 :iC.
HOW TUB RACE WAS WOK.
On the third mile Woodruff pursued the
lame tactius as in the two preceding miles,
only putting on a little more steam, which
compelled the pacer to add a little more
pressure, and away they dashed around
the upper turn and down the backstretch
at a killing pace. They came to the stand
on even terms in the third mile, Hlrara
exclaiming to a friend as they passed, "I've
got him, sure." Time, 'i:X 1-5.
The fourth and fifth miles were run in
precisely the sunie manner, both horses
coming to the wire like a team. The time
for the fourt h mile ws's 2;B9 and the fifth
U:37.. On the sixth mile the trotter became
tho favorite, any amount of money being
offered on him, without takers. He took
the pole on the first turn, In spite of
Rplrer's efforts to force tho pacer to extend
himself, and the hitter began to ahow
symptoms of distress. He struggled brave
ly, however, hnt the trottor opened the
gnp at every stride. At the half mile pole
he was fifty jards in front, without the
slightest abatement of his speed; but on
the lower turn Hiram let him up, and took
It moro moderately np tho homestretch,
coming to the line in 2:4fl, having per
formed the six miles in I5:5ft), an average
of less than 2:40 for the six miles.
When the pacer reached the stand it was
evident he hud enough, and he was stopped
at the wire. A more exciting rano, nn long
Is it lasted, I have never seen.
The trotter was then slowed to an easy
gait, as it was nnoereasary to drive him np
to his spwid any longer, and he was walked
and jogR'd the naxt three miles, keeping
as fresh as possible for the last unle, his
owner, having a wager of $o00 that ho
would make the tenth mile in less than
three minutes. The time of the seventh
mile was MS, t he eighth 0:18 and the ninth
5:10, hut he was let out on coming to the
wire and started to decide the wager, dash
ing off at an astonishing rate of speed,
which bo kept tip throiiKhnut the mile,
performing the distance in 2:39 the great
est feat ever known.

"You can almost tell a person's charac
ter from the nose alone," remarked Pro
fessor Uppenheim. "All great men have
great noses. The Greek 'nose, which has
no protuberance, but is straight, argues
great sense of sasthetics, of beauty, but no
character and no power of contention.
"Large nostrils show courage. People
of fearless disposition breathe fully and
freely. All the fiercer animals have di
lated nostrils. The drooping nostril shows
histrionic talent. If the nnNC also droops
it denotes a tragic power, and if only the
nostril the capacity is marked for the in
terpretation of comedy.
"Where the nose is thin at the bridge it
Shows generosity, while a nose that is thick
at the bridge argues acquisitiveness. When
it is tiptilted like the petal of a flower the
person is inquisitive. A projecting nose
argues a disposition to investigate. It is
ahead of the person, as it wore, and wants
to scent out things." London Cor. New
