THE SCRANTON TRIBUNEMONDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1895.
(Copyright 1WJ. iy
, CHAPTER II.
By nildday I had got as far as the vil
lage of 8alfl4t, but as I was on t.i
direct road for 4sterode. whtre the fin-
pcror wan w'b
Inv n il aim f.iP til

even divisions of In
ay was choked with
tn. What with artll
Waruna and couriers
fiwtry. the high
lery, outssons ar
and (he ever-thlkenlns; stream of re
cruits and EtraoKters, It seemed to nw
that It would 1 tv very Ioiib time be
fore I should loin my comrade. The
plains, howeve were Ave feet deep in
i.ow. so there waa nothing tor it but to
plod upon our way. It was with joy.
therefore, that I found a second road
which branched away from the other,
trending through a fir wood toward the
north. There waa a small auberge at
the cross roads and patrol of th?
Third Hussars of Conflans the very
rtp'n.fnt of which I was afterward
colonel were mounting their horses at
the ooor. On the steps stood their ot!l
cer, a slight, pale young man, who
looked like e young priest from u sem
inal y than al eader of the devlt-nwy-care
rascals before him.
"Good day. air." said he, eeeing that I
pulled up my horse.
"Good day." I answered. "I am Lieu
tenant Btlenne Gerard of the Tenth."
I could see by his face that he had
heard of me. Everybody had heard of
sne since my duet with the six fencing
trusters. Sly manner, however, served
to put him at his ease with me.
"I am Sub-Lieutenant Duroc of the
Third," said he. .
"Newly joined T" I asked.
- "Last week."
I had thought as much from his white
face and from the way in which he l-'t
men lounge upon their horses. It wai :
not so long, however, since I hud ;
learned mvself what It In like when a I
schoolboy has to give orders to vet
ran troopers. It made me blush, I
remember, to shout abrupt commands
to men who had seen more battles than I
bad. years, and it should have come
Inore natural for me to say "With your
gtermiflBton we will now wheel into
line.' or "If you think it best, we shall
trot." I did not think the less of the
lad, therefore, when I observed that
Ills men were somewhat out of hand,
but I gave them a glance wlch stiffened
Chera In their saddles.
'Ofay I ask, monsieur, whether you '
are olng by this -northern road?" I
"Uty orders are to patrol it as far as
iarepadorf." said he.
"Then I will, with your permission,
ride so far with you,", said I; "It is
very clear and the lorjkjr way will be
the faster." . A
K proved, for this road led away
from the army Into a country which
was gtven over to Cossacks and marau
ders, and it was as bare as the other
waa crowded. , iDuroc and I rode In
front with our six troopers clattering
along in the rear. He was a good boy,
this "Duroc, with his head full of the
nonsense that they teach at St. Cyr,
knowing; more . about Alexander and
Pompejr than how to mix a horse's fod
der or care for a horse's feet. Still he
was, as I have said, a good boy, un
. polled as yet Iby the camp. It pleased
. me to hear him prattle away about his
Ister Marie and about his mother In
'Amiens. Presently we found ourselves
at the village of Hayenah. Duroc rode
up to .the post house and asked to see
"Can you tell me," said he, "whether
a man who calls himself Baron Strau
fcenthal Uvea In these parts ?"
The postmaster shook his head and
re rode upon our way.
I took no notice of this, but when at
Che next village my oomrade repeated
the same question, with the same re
sult, I could not help asking him who
this Baron fitratfbenthal might be.
"He Is a man," said Duroc, with a
(Hidden flush upon his boyish face, "to
whom I have a very Important mes
sage to convey."
Well, this was not satisfactory, but
there was something in my companion's
nanneV which told me that any fur
Chef questioning would be distasteful
to him. I said nothing more, therefore,
trut Duroc would still ask every peasant
whom we met whether he could give
bim any news of the Baron Straulben
thai For my own part I was endeavoring
as an officer of light cavalry should, to
form an Idea of the lay of the country,
to note the course of the streams and
to mark the places where there should
be fords. 'Every step was taking us
' further from the camp round the flanks
. Of which we were traveling. Far to
the south a few plumes of gray smoke
' Id the frosty air marked the position of
t some of our outposts. To the north,
bowever, there was nothing between

caught a glimpse of 0 glitter of steel
. t was too distant for us to tell whence
It came, but we had little doubt that It
was from the lanceheads of marauding
' The sun waa just setting when we
rod over a low hill and saw a small
Village upon our Ight and on our left
a considerable castle which jutted out
- from among the pine woods.

"What village Is this" asked Duroc,
"It Is Arensdorf," he answered in his
barbarous German dialect.
"Ttn-n here 1 ar.i to stay the night,"
said my young companion. Then turn
ing to the farmer, he asked his eternal
question: "Can you tell me where the
Baron Straubenthal lives?"
"Why, it Is he who owns the Castle
of Gloom." said the farmer, pointing to
the dark turrets over the distant fir
Duroc gave a shout like the sports
man who stos his game rising in front
of him. The lad seemed to have gone
olT his head, his eyes shining, his face
deathly whlu and such a gtlm set
about his mouth as made the farmer
stirln',; away from him. I can see him
now, leaning forward on his brown
hors? with his eag.-r gaze tlxed upon
tho g.vat black tower.
"Why i'.j you call it the Castle of
Glro:n?" 1 asked.
'W Al It is tlv.' name it bears upon
the country side." tald the farmer. "By
all accounts, there have been some
black doli:js t'P yonder. It's not for
nothing that the wickedest man In Po
land h'.s been living there these four
teen year3 past."
"A Polish nobleman?" I asked.
"Nay. vi breed no such men In Po
land," he answered.
"A Fronohnian, then," cried Duroc.
"They say thut he canu from
"And with rod hair?"
"As r:d as a fox."
"Yes, y.s. It Is my man," cried my
cnnifjnlon, quivering all over In his
exeii jm.'nt. "It Is th hand of Provl-der-.-e
which has led me here. Who
can say that there Is not Justice In this
world. Come, Minsiaur Gerard, for I

ter." lie k-punvd on his horse, and ten
minutes later we were at the door of the
Inn at Arensdorf, where his men were
to find their quarters for the night.
Well, this was no affair of mine, and I
could not Imagine what the meaning of
It mifrht be. Hossel was still far off,
but I determined to ride for a few hours,
and tak? my chance of finding some
wayside bain in which I could
find shelter for Rataplan and
myself. I had mounted my
horse, therefore, after tossing off
a cup of wine, when young Duroc came
running out of the door and laid his
hand upon my knee.
"Monsieur Gerard," he panted, "I beg
of you not to abandon me like this."
"My good sir," said I, "If you would
tell me what is the matter and what
you would wish me to do, I should be
better able to tell you If I could be of
any assistance to you."
"You can be of the very greatest," he
cried. "Indeed, from that I have
heard of you. Monsieur Gerard, you are
the one man. whom I should wish to
have by my side tonight."
"You forget that I am riding to join
"You cannot In any case reach It to
night. Tomorrow will bring you to
Rossel. By staying with me you will
confer the greatest kindness upon me,
and you will aid me In a matter which
concerns my own honor and the honor
of my family. I am compelled, how
ever, to confess to you that some per
sonal danger may possibly be in
volved." It was a crafty thing for him to say.
Of course I sprang from Kataplan's
back and ordered the groom to lead
him back to the stable.
"Come Into the Inn," said I, "and let
me know exactly what It Is that you
wish me to do."
He led the way into a sitting room
and fastened the door lest we should
be Interrupted. He was a well-grown
lad. and as he stood In the glare of the
lamp with the light 'beating upon his
earnest face, and upon his uniform of
silver gray which suited him to a mar
vel, I felt my heart warm toward him.
Without going so far as to say that
he carried himself as I have done at his
age, there was at last similarity
enough to make me feel sympathy with
"I can explain It all In a few words,"
said he. "If I have not already satis
fled your very natural curiosity It Is
because the subject Is so painful a one
that I can hardly bring myself to allude
to It. I cannot, however, ask for your
assistance without explaining to you
exactly how the matter lies.
"You mu3t know, then, that my
father was the well-known banker,
Christopher Duroc, who was murdered
by the people during the September
massacres. AA you are aware, the mob
took possession of the prisons, chose
three so-called judgej to pass sentence
upon the unhappy aristocrats, and then
tore them to pltces when they were
passed out into the street. My father
had been a benefactor of the poor all
his life. There were many to plead for
him. He had the fever, too, and was
carried In half dead upon a blanket,
Two of the judges were In favor of
acquitting him. The third one, a young
Jacobin whose huge body and brutal
mind had made him a leader among the
wretches, dragged him with his own
hands from the litter, kicked him again
and again with his heavy boots, and
hurled him out of the door, where In
an Instant he was torn limb from limb
under circumstances which are too hor
rlble to describe. This, as you perceive,
was murder even under their own un
lawful laws, for two of their own judges
had pronounced In my father's favor,
"Well, when the days of order came
back again my elder brother began to
make Inquiries about this man. I was
only a child then, but it was a family

would be very easy for us to-And htm

Tou must remember, however, that the

that without money such a search la

"My brother joined the army and
passed with It through all southern Eu

Straubenthal. Last October he was
killed at Jena with his mission still un

very man- of whom I am In search at

Santa F N. M.. July 6. It may be
true, as that very learned man, Herr
Strlndberg, asserts, that a woman can
not, by reason of mental Inferiority,
make as good a cup of coffee as a man
can, but when It comes to stealing
horses she has proved that her mental
qualities are quite the equal of his. Of
all the women whom tin de Steele degen

extracting a living from the world,
hus driven into this form of activity,
the one with the most checkered career
Is Mrs. Helen Scott, of Southern New
Mexico. For four years this woman
was one of the leading spirits In a gang
of ex-cowboys, who had become horse
thieves. They ranged all over South
ern New Mexico and Arizona, and
slipped over the line Into Old Mexico
whenever the sheriffs and deputy mar
shals were too warm on their track.
They captured more horses, disposed of
them to better advantage and eluded
the officers of the law more sucessfully
than any other band of horse-thieves
In the southwest. One of the men,
after they were finally captured, pri
vately declared that much of their suc
cess was due to the wariness and as
tuteness of Mrs. Scott's counsels and
methods. She dressed all that time in
men's clothes, and nobody would have
guessed from her appearance that she
waa anything but a slender, handsome
boy. Her companions all knew her sex,
and among them and the sheriffs who
chased her for four years she was

Hero's an Incqpoclastie Foreign Doctor
Who Dares to Declare that Dampness
Hasn't a Thins to Do with Kkenmatlsni.
Modern science is playing havoc with
many of the cherished beliefs of th? last
Kent ration. Few things are more gener
ally accepted than the caumtlvo connec
tion between dampness of air and soil and
tho prevalence of rheumatic fever; yet
lr. Newsholme, an English physician, now
states before the Royal College, of Physi
cians thut dampness has nothing to do
with It. There Is doubtless a rheumatism,
a painful condition of Joints, ligaments
and tendons, which is extremely suscepti
ble to damp. There are hobbling old men,
who by virtue of their malady, become
trusty village storm signals, und their
malady Is rheumatism; but that Is a very
different thing from rheumatic fever. This
disease Is now found to vary more or less
inversely with the rainfall, and comparing
the yearly and quarterly local rainfalls
w!th tho Incidence' of rheumatiu f -ver, us
shown l-y the hospital statistics, 4t is noted
that a heavy rainfall Is associated with a
low amount, ami a light rainfall with on
excessive amount of tho disease, although
no exact proportion was observed between
Even more at variance with what hns
been so commonly accepted were the re
sults of observations In regard to the rela
tion between the level of the ground water
and the prevalence of the dls-ase. The
theory of dampness would lead one to
expect a greater prevalence of rheumatism
at times when the subsoil water ap
proached nearer to the surface of the
ground. Just 'the opposite Is the case.
Although the lowering of the ground water
Is not always accompanied by a rising in
the rheumatism "curve," it has constantly
been remarked that an excessive preva
lence never occurs when the ground water
In high. Another novelty Is the theory
that rheumatic fever comes In epidemics,
analogous to thoso of Infectious diseases.
It Is, Indeed, probable that tho fever Is,
Ilka them, nn infective disease, not neces
sarily Infective from man to man, but
by way of the house, or soil, or the sur
roundings, und that among the conditions
favorable to its spread Is that state of soil
which ucoinpanies a prolonged lowering
of tho ground water in other words, the
exposure to air of a subsoil usually lying
The gist of Dr. Newsholme's strictures
is that rheumatic fever is a ground air
disease, and that much more care should
be taken than Is commonly done in th
construction of houses to prevent the
ground air being drawn into our dwellings.
