THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MORNING. AUGUST 31. 1894.
Wo vero 110 nearer the truth than
fceforo. Roso Gernon had told us notk

taiuly sho dechirud herself to bo iuno
oent of tho rriuiH nurl . accused Btrent,
but if we found Streut he might dcclnro
himself innocent and anr-use her. One
or, tho other of them must necessarily
bo guilty, as thoy nhmo had seen Felix
on that; fatal nifjit. Roso was being
closely watched by a detective, so that
wo could obtain her evidence at any mo

Strait and boar his ptory. Francis be
lieved Strent had killed his brother. I
had my donbts, a I could sco no motivo
for his committing tho crime, where
as Roso, iu a fit , of blind imer, might
have done so. Merrick's thoory as to her
guilt was more in accordance with my
Hitherto wo kept tho case from being
meddled with by tho police, but now
they began to handle tho matter. In
formed by Francis as to the wherea
bouts of tho body, they dragged the
pool near tho Fen inn and recovered
tho corpse of the unhappy young man.
Then the inspector wroto a peremptory
letter to Francis, requesting him to
como down tmd attend tho inquest.
Thcro was a note of suspicion in tho
letter, and Francis could not very well
help .obeying tho snunnons.
Hti requested me to como with him,
which I had every intention of doing.
Wo-settled the time of our departure
Mid before going saw Olivia and Dr.
Merrick. Mrs. Bellin had not been in
formed of the death of Felix, nor did
ehe suspect that anything wrong was
(join? on under her very noso. Thanks
to tho wonderful resemblance between
tns twins, she accepted Felix as Francis
nnd Francis as himself without the
slightest suspicion. At first she had ob
jected to the engagement, but afterward,
learning that Brairfiuld possessed a good
income, consented. To be sure, she would
have been better pleased had Olivia
married a title, but as her daughter de
clared she would marry no one but
Francis Mrs. Bellin gave way with a
As to Olivia, she was terribly dismay
ed when she heard Francis was going to
Marshminster, and sho dreaded lest ho
. should be accused of his brother's mur
der. The actions of Francis had been
go very peculiar that I was afraid to tell
them to the inspector lest he should
think the young man guilty. At tho
eamo time it was impossible to keep
them secret, as Francis had thrown the
body of his brother into the pool and
would havo to explain to the inspector
how it got there. Our only chance of
proving him to bo innocent lay in find
ing Strent, and whero he was to be dis
covered nono of us knew. Merrick's
clover brain discovered a clew to the
destination of tho fugitive.
, "Did yon rido to the Fen inn from,
Marshniiunter?" he asked Francis. j
"No. Had I come by train to Marsh-.
niiusitcr I would have gone to Bellin
Hall, where my brother was staying,
find seen him before Olivia. "
"It's a pity you did not go there," i
said Merrick thoughtfully. "All this
trouble might have then been avoided. !
Well, how did you get to tho Fen inn?"
"I took the train from London to
Btarby, hired a horse there and rodo to ':
Hie Fon ian."
' . "How far is it from Starby to the
"About 13 miles."
"And from tho Fen inn to Marshrnin
Bter?" "Ten miles."
"Much about a muchnoss, " said Mer
rick. "Did you tell Strent you had rid
deu from Btarby?"
"Yos. I had no reason to conceal my
' movements. "
"Quite so. ' Well, according to Rose
Gcrniiii, it was your horso Strent took
"It was. I wonder he did not take
tho horse of Felix."
"For a very simple reason. Ho knew
when tho alarm was given that you
and Denham would go to Marshmiu
eter. Therefore, to hide his trail the
better, he went back with your horse to
Btarby." . '
"Do you think so?"
"I am sure of it. Go to the livery
stable at Starby where you hired your
horse, and I am certain you will find
it tlieTe, restored by Strent."
"Well," said I, in nowise satisfied,
"supposo wo trace him to Btarby. That
will bo of no use. No doubt he took the
train thoro for London. "
' "Very probably," said Merrick cool
ly, "aiid waited there for Koso Ger
iion." "But she has not seen him since he
fled from the inn. "
"So sho says, but it is not true, for
all that When ho killed Felix, and
the evidence seems to point to him as
tho lnnrdereT, he told Rose to take tho
gig and go to .Marelimiiister. Then he
rodo off to Starby and rejoined her in
"But why should sho conceal his
' 'Bocauso ho knows too much about
tho crinio," said Merrick decisively.
"Either she did it herself and. is afraid
of Lis speaking, or he did it, and she
wishes to screen him. "
. ."Why should she wish to scrocn a
man who killeu her lover?"
"I can't answi : all questions," said
Merrick irritably, finding himself at a
luss. "All tins is pure theory, but I
think it is so. I am certain there is an
understanding between Rose and Strent
If that detective watching Rose only
know Strent, I am certain ho would

"Why not give the detective a pic

"Why not indeed?" I retorted deri
lively. "Because we haven't got a pic

and watching faces. Tho follow struck
mo as such a smug sconndrol that I
penciled a caricature of him whilo he
moved about tho dining room. It is not
a photograph certainly. Still I think it
is sufficiently like him. "
"Capital, " said tho doctor, rubbing
his hands. "It's a good thing yon em
ployed your leisure in that way, Mr.
Briarfield. It may do yon a great serv
"You think I am in danger?"
"I think you stand in uperilous posi
tion," replied the doctor gravely. "Your
very efforts to preserve your secret and
bafllo Denham will score against you
with tho police, Aud you must tell
them all, seeing yon know where the
body was to lie found. ' '
"I'll toll them all and do tho best
lean," said Francis, turning pale,
"but Roso can prove I was never out of
"No, she can't. Roso went to bed,
and for aught she knows you might
have come down and quarreled with
your brother afterward. Your only
chance, Mr. Briarfield, of proving your
innocence is to find Strent If you give
that portrait to the detective watching
Rose Gernon, I believe you'll lay hands
on him, but it's a mere chance. "
"There is another means of identifi
cation, " said L "Strent is lamo, so if
a lamo man calls on Miss Gernon my
detective, aided by tho picture, will
know it, is Strent."
"Well, go and try my plan," said
Merrick, shaking Francis by the hand.
"I hopo for your sake, Mr. Briarfield,
it will be successful. "
When wo left the doctor, Francis
looked pale and upset. He was just be
ginning to realize the predicament in
which ho stood. I was afraid myself
that when all was known he would be
arrested. His own actions looked black,
though I knew they were done out of
pure foolishness. Had he only trusted
me at tho time, all tho trouble would
have been averted As it was, I dotcr
mined to stand by him to tho ond.
"Cheer up, Briarllold, " said I, clap
ping him on his back. "If Merrick and
I solved so much of tho mystery, you

"It's the newpauers I'm thinking
of," he said ruefully. "If all this
foolishness gets into tho press, Mrs,
Bellin will never let me marry Olivia."
"I don't think Mrs. Bellin will have
much say in the matter," I answer
ed dryly. "Olivia is not the kind of
woman to givo up her lover so easily,

"Thank you, Denham," said the
poor fellow gratefully. "You aro the

"Faith, you didn't think 80 at Paris,
Briarfield. I've no doubt that there you

At this he laughed and began to pick
up his spirits. We saw tho detective
who was wutching Roso Gernon and
gave him the picture drawn by Fran,
cis, with a full description of the man
he wanted. Esiiecially did we lay
stress on tho lameness, and in the end
our detective promised that ho would

tho inspector had supplied us with this
information, we sat down and told him
the wholo story as has been here set
forth. Ho listened with much astonish
ment and expressed himself to that end.
"I never read a novel to touch this,'
he said, staring at Franois. "Truth is
stranger than fiction, after alL You
greatly resemble your unhappy brother,
Air. Briarfield." .
"Is tho body much decomposed?" ask
ed I, seeing that Francis remained si

"I'll wire fpr her to como down at

"It will bo as well. I'll send a man
over to Starby and find out if Strent
delivered tho horse to tho livery stable
keeper. I wish to heaven, Denham,"
said tho inspector, raging at me, "that
you had told me all about this at first."
"I acted for tho best."
"I've no doubt you 'did," he replied
ill tempertdly, "but I hate your ama
teur detectives. Thev simply muddlo
things. I'd have straightened out this
coil long ago had I taken it in hand."
Ihavo my doubts of that," said I
dryly and went off to tho telegraph of
fice. There I sent a telegram to Rose
Gernon asking her to como down by
the early train next morning and also
informed tho detective that I wished
her to come. I knew quito well sho
would not dare to refuse, and, more
over, that my detectivo would semi a
mail to watch her, while ho waited
round her houso for the possible ap
pearanco of Strent.
When I got back to tho inspector's
room, I found that his ill temper had
vanished, and ho was doing his best to
"I'vo ljou a man in a worse plight
than is yours, Mr. Briarfield," ho was
aying when I entered, "ajid yet ho

cause of his predicament was similar."
"What's that?" said Francis, looking
"Lack of moral courage. Had you
told Denham at tho time and then both
of yon had told mo, wo might have laid
our hands on Roso Gernon and Strent.
As it was, you gavo thorn time to mako
up their plans and get away."
"Roso hasn't got away," saidlgrim
" She's safe enough and will be hero
I wish we could say the same about
Strent," said the inspector.
Do you think he is guilty?" asked
Upon my word, sir, aftor all my ex
perience of the law, I am afraid to say
who is guilty and who isn't That the
ory of Dr. Merrick's regarding Rose
Gernon is feasible enough. She certain
ly seems to havo had more motive for
killing your brother than had Stront"
It's my opinion, "said I, "that there
is a relationship between Strent and
Roso. In such relationship lies the se
cret, of tho crinio and her silence. "
Humph t There's something in
that, " said tho inspector. "They might
bo man and wife."
'Or brother and sister, " suggested
'Or even lovers," I said, nodding
my head. "Jealousy on the part of
Strent might havo spurred him on to
These, however, were all theories,
and we parted for tho night without
coming to any decision as to who was
the guilty party. In tho morning I re
ceived a telegram from Merrick and
went off with it at once to the inspect
or. It ran thus:
"Have secured Strent. Am bringing
him down with Roso. Arrive at noon.
Hold over inquest if possible."
"By Jove, sir," said the inspector,
"that man is lost as a doctor. Ho ought
to bo a detectivo."

When tho heat of a tropical or semi
tropical summer dries up every pool and
parches tho ground to such an extout
that it is difficult for animals not tu

to obtain water, they compromise with
nature by sleeping off tho season of heat
and scarcity. The winter sleepers are
all pretty well known: but. owing to
tho Bummer sleepers being for the most

observers, we are loss acquainted with

However many women devote their lei

to ancient traditions und spend their spare

Tho wisdom of bending over a needle for
hours when It is not necessity which urges
the labor may he questioned, but women
will do it and are always anxious to learn
some new way of exercising their deftness
of hand. No doubt if these same women
had been bom men they would have been
cabinet makers, goldsmiths or followers
of some other trade In which there is equal
scope for manual dexterity. Being wonv
