CHAPTER III.-SUSPICION 13 NOT

When Mrs. Adams told me that the
bad picked up Henry's whlp-rlbbon
Wednesday morning I said nothing, but
thought that Henry must have driven
over Tuesday evening after all. and
tven come up. Into, the yard, although
the house was shut up and I in bed, to
get a little nearer to me. I felt con-aclnce-stricken
because I could not
help a thrill of happiness, when my
father lay dead In the house.
My father was burled as privately
and quietly as we could bring It about.
But It was a terrible ordeal. Meantime
word came from Vermont that Rufus
I Was Arrested.
Bennett had been arrested on his farm.
He was perfectly willing to come back
with the officers, and. Indeed, had not
the slightest. trouble In proving that he
was at his home In Vermont when the
murder took place. He proved by sev
eral witnesses that he was out of the
state long before my father and I sat
on the step together that evening, artd
that he proceeded directly to his home
as fast as 'the train and stage-coach
could carry him.
The screwdriver with which the deed
was supposed to have been committed
was found by the neighbor from whom
It had been borrowed in his wife's

end she had used It to put up a picture
hook in her chamber. Bennett was
dlcharired and returned to Vermont.
Then Mrs. Adams told of her finding
the yellow ribbon from Henry Ellis'
whip, and he was arrested, since he was
held to have a motive for putting my
father out of the world. Father's oppo
sition to our marriaire was well known.
and Hanry was suspected also of hav
ing had an eye to his money. It was
found, Indeed, that my father had more
money than I had known myself.
Henry owned to having driven Into
our yard that night, and to having
missed the ribbon from his whip on his
return; Dut one of the hostlers in the
livery stable In, Dlgby, where he kept
his horse and buggy, came forward and
testified to finding the yellow ribbon
In' the carriage-room 'that Tuesday
night before Henry returned from his
drive. -.There were two yellow ribbons
In evidence, therefore, and the one pro
duced by the hostler seemed to fit Hen
ry's whlpMock the more exactly.
Moreover, nearly the exact minute of
the murder was claimed to be proved
by the 'post mortem examination; and
by the testimony of the stablemen as to
the hour cf Henry's return and the

cleared of suspicion; for If the opinion
of tha medical experts was correct,
Henry niuft have returned to the livery
stable .too soon to have committed the
He' was-discharged, at any rate, al
though suspicion still plung to him.
Many people believe now in his guilt
those who do not believe in mine; and
some believe we were accomplices.
After Henry's discharge I was arrest
1. There was no one else left to ac
ouse. -I was the only person left with
a motive. tTnllke the nthora who wr
discharged after preliminary examina
tion, I was held to the grand jury and
taken to Dedhanv where I spent four'
weeks In Jail awaiting the meeting of
the grand Jury.

tion nor before the grand Jury waa I al
lowed to make the full and frank state

told simply to answer the questions
that were put to me, and to volunteer
nothing, and I obeyed.
I know nothing about law. I wished
to do the best I could to act In the
wisest manner, for Henry' sake and
my own. I said nothing about the
green silk dress. They searched the
house for all manner of things, at the
time of my arrest, but the dress was
not there it was in Phoebe Dole's dye
kettle. She had come over after It her
self one day when I was picking beans
In the garden, and had taken It out of
the closet. She 'brought It back her
self, and told me this, after I had re
turned from Dertham.
"I thought I'd get It and surprise
you," aaid she. "It's taken a beautiful
She gave me a strange look, half as if
she would see Into my very soul. In
plte of me. half as If she were In terror
of what she would see there, as she
spoke. I do not know Just what
Phoebe Dole's look meant. There may
have been a stain left on that dress af
ter all, and she may have seen it.
I suppose If It had not been for that
flour-paste which I had learned to
make, I should have been hung for the
murder of my own father. As It was,
the grand Jury found no bill against
me. because there was absolutely no
evidence to convict me; and I came
home a free woman. And If people
were condemned for their motives,
would there be enough hangmen In the
They found no weapon with which I
oould have done the deed. They found
no blood stains on my clothes. The one
thing which told against me. aside
from my ever-present motive, was the
fact that on the morning after the mur
der 4he doors and windows were fast
ened. My volunteering that Informa
tion had, of course, weakened Its force
89 against myself.
Then, too, some held that I might
have been mistaken In my terror and
excitement, and there was a theory, ad
vanced by a few, that the murderer
had meditated making me also a vic
tim, and had locked the doors that be
might not be frustrated In his designs,
but had lost heart at last and allowed
me to escape, and then somehow fled
himself. Some held that he had In
tended to force me to reveal the where
abouts of father's money, but his cour
age had failed him.
Father had quite a sum In a hiding
place which only he and I knew. But
ne search for money had been made, so
far as any one could see not a bureau
drawer, had been disturbed, and fa
ther's gold watch was ticking peaceful
ly under his pillow; even his wallet In
his vest pocket had not been opened.
There was a small roll of bank notes
In It, and some change; father never
carried much money. I suppose If fa
ther's wallet and watch had been taken
1 1 should not have been suspected at all.
I was discharged, as I (have said, from
lack of evidence, and have returned to
my home, free, Indeed, but with this
awful burden of suspicion upon my
shoulders. That brings me up to the
present day. I . returned yesterday
evening. This evening Henry Ellis has
been over to see me; he will not come
again, for I have forbidden him to do
so. This Is what I said to him:
"I know you are Innocent, you know
I am Innocent. To all the world we are
under suspicion I more than you,, but
I Do Not Car for Myself.
we are both under suspicion. If we are
known to be together, that suspicion is
Increased for both of us. I do not care
for myself, but I do care for you. Sep
arated from me, the stigma attached to
you will soon fade away, especially If
you should marry elsewhere."
Then Henry Interrupted me. "I will
never marry elsewhere!" said lie.
I could not ihelp being glad that he
said It, but I Was firm.
"If you should see some good woman
whom you can love, It will be better for
you to marry elsewhere," said I.
"I never will!" ihe said again. He put
his arms around me, but I had strength
to push him away.
"Tounever need. If I succeed In what

from that 'minute I have felt sustained
and fully confident of my power to do

Happenings of Interest to the Staple
Trades and Particularly to the Trade
in Iron, Steel and Anthracite Coal.
The American Tinplate company. El
wood, Ind., recently started up six ad
ditional mills, making tn all sixteen
that are active. The plant is now four
times as large as when it started in
VtVl, and employs 1,000 men.
There is a material increase In the
demand for car equipment. This Is the
cause of an advance In bar iron of $2
per 'ton In the west, and 1-10 of a cent
per pound In the east. Railroad shops
all over the country are resuming full
time. Philadelphia Times.
The work of rebuilding the Susque
hanna Rolling mill, t Columbia, Pa.,
which was recently destroyed by fire,
has been1 commenced. The new struc
ture will be entirely of Iron, and will be
much larger than the burned mill. The
.Tanson Iron company has commenced
the work of enlarging He rolling mill
plant at Columbia.
The Reading Iron company an
nounces that It has assumed charge of
the rolling mills of the Montour Iron
and Steel company located at Danville,
and that they will be placed in full
operation by Aug. 12. About 400 men
will be employed at the start. Grooved
skelp, merchant bar, light rails, etc.,
are turned out. Theodore F. (Patter
son has been appointed superintendent
of the Danville plant.

machinery has done away with a
great many laborers. Statistics from
the European Continent show that the
number of carpenters has been reduced

and wood cutters, 42 per cent, within
'Engineering News noted recently a
striking example of the accuracy of
American tools and worxmanshlp in
the case of the 12-Inch guns going from
Watervllet arsenal to "the proving
grounds at Sandy Hook. Each of these
guns is 40 feet long and weighs 115,000
pounds, yet the difference In weight be
tween the seven guns la said to be only
five pounds. These guns are nickel
steel tube army rifles of 40 calibres In
length, instead of the usual 35 calibres.
Instead of a jacket a series of hoops are
shrunk on the Inner tube for nearly
the whole length of the gun, and over
this is shrunk a single jacket, covering
about two-thirds of the length, and
then another layer of long hoops.
When the intricacy of this assembling
process Is considered in connection with
work done on lathes capable of hand
ling guns 40 feet long, jthe close agree
ment In weight Is almost phenomenal.
The shot-making trade has a legend
which recites that back In the days
when guns were shot off by lighted
matches and were swiveled to supports
because they were too big and clumsy
to be lifted to the shoulder, and when
all shot was moulded as bullets are
today, some workmen were fastening
an Iron grating to the wall of a castle.
They had cut out the hole In the stone,
and, after placing the iron In the hole,
poured some lead In to hold the Iron In
place, just as they do today. Some of
the lead escaped and ran over the edge
of the wall Into the moat below. Soon
afterward the attention of the soldiers
was attracted to the lead in the clear
water, and, dipping It out, they found
that the metal In falling from the
height had become globules. After that
those soldiers made their bullets by
sprinkling melted lead over the castle
wall into the waters of the moat
