THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1001".
A Frenchman's Blunder. f

"IIUY HAD been very happy to

Sm the young KhriIhIuiuui, who
was npparently cntlioly tuken
up with Rolf, and iv Rlrl of
elRhteen, n usual companion upon
the HnkH. He was fond of Rolf, and
she lllccil uothlnR butter, and In that
small hotel In the south of Trance,
where they both weie staylnR, nothing
was more natural than that they
should become acquainted.
There was no troublesome eldeis lo

Rradually riow Into something moio.
so that bright spilngtlme was a period
of bliss to Ouy Donlngton and little
Ho was a young barrNter spending
his holidays on the southern const ot
France, She was the only daughter ot
an old Indian who spent hli life In
ttavel, and who foigot to keep a pioper
watch over his pretty daughter at the
small Ficnch hotel.
Hltheito cerythlng bad gone very
smoothly with them, but Just when
Ouy was going to tell Mr Herbert
about his love for Itnclicl their peace
and happiness was suddenly Inteiiiipt
ed. It was one evening during the
long table d'hote. Ouy, happy, foitu
nato Ouy, who was spoken ot at home
as having been born under a lucky
star, saw three persons sitting at the
Hotberts' dinner table. The thlttl was
a sti anger, a lively Kienrhman, el
dently an old ft lend of Mr. Hei belts
Rachel In her white frock, looking ex
asperatlngly pretty, was laughing and
ci.attlng with him. Ouy scowled acioss
at their table, then bit his nails In des
peration when Hachel made the new
comer laugh and look at her with un
disguised admiration. He knew that
she was true to him, yet he hated to
see another man ndmltc her, and he
longed for one smile or one look from
his love to reassure him of her fidel
ity. The most cautious young man tin own
caution to the winds when he Is In
love, and behaves often In a most un
restrained manner, while his mistress
keeps her head through nil dllllcultles,
is cool and self-possessed at the most
critical moment, and so makes a love
affair prosper and succeed when alt
might have failed without her calm
discretion. Such was the case with
Guy and Rachel.
Guy, generally a most sensible and
discreet young man, was fast losing
his usual self-command at this Hist
sign of alarm, and nearly spoilt eeiy
thlng by coughing and fidgeting In the
hope ot attracting Rachel's attention.
Rut she was nn atom afraid of her fa
ther, who nt present was Iguotant ot
her affairs and she continued to laugh
and talk with the Frenchman, and
cruelly Ignored those most obvious
signs at the end of the loom, fearing
that their plans might bo overthrown
If her father guessed the truth before
the morrow, when Ouy Intended to
bTeak It to him with all duo respect
and good sense.
In the salon after dinner Ouy grew
perfectly desperate when he found
that Rachel was still amusing the
newcomer. Mr. Herbeit sat content
edly watching his daughter, reeling
that ho was not wanted Guv pushed
hack his chair from the table where
ho had been drinking his coffee and
habtlly left the room, with a last frown
at his ilval. The Frenchman looked
up at him as he passed out Into the
hall. He noticed the young man's ex
pression of discontent nnd annoyance
No doubt Guy's behaviour In the din
ing room had not been lost upon him
A look of malicious amusement and
triumph crept Into his daik, sallow
face, and he turned away and began to
talk to Rachel with renewed vigor.
The large salon grew hotter and hot
ter: tho noisy laughter and talk never
ceased. Presently Rachel bade her fa
ther and his friend good night and
crept quietly from .the room. The
Fienchman watched her movements
with his keen eyes.
"My f i lend," he said, when she had
left the room, "you must keep your
eyes open, or you will have your
daughter mairjing that young Eng
lishman. The truth Is I have a mind
to wed her myself. She Is ptetty
enough to reign In my chateau and to
shine In Parisian society. What say
you, my friend?"
Mr. Herbert looked pleased. M
Petljcnn was very rich, and he seemed
to him a most eligible suitor for his

"You may tty to win her," he said.
"1 will back you up, Petljeun. Rachel
Is always anxious to please me."
In tho meantime Ouy was slowly
taking down his coat In the hall, when
a light hnnd was placed upon his aim
and a voice very dear to him said:
"Ouy, what Is ItV Something has
put you out. Tell me."
He looked down Into the sweet face
nt his elbow.
"Come for a stroll," he said. "Hero
Is my coat. I will help you Into It."
So they passed out of tho hotel to
gether. A wind was blowing from the
sea, and they turned away from It
down the nnrrow, sheltered street.
Theie was no moon, but It was not a
dark night; a star or two shone over
head, and Ouy and Rachel paced nrm-In-nnn
thtough tho little town content
to be together. Hut a dark figure, un
tcpn by both, followed them nt a dis
tance, occasionally hiding behind a
piojectlng buttress, or ct coping cau
tiously across tho road to avoid u gas
lamp or a passer-by. Suddenly Guy
stopped. He held both Rachel's hands
"My dear," he said, passionately,
"you will be ttue to me? I feel tonight
as If all will not go so smoothly with
us as we wish. I feel as If tumbles
lay ahead, yet you will tiust mo al
"Ves," she mui muted, almost fright
ened at his earnestness.
"And whateer dllllcultles at Ise yon
will still be true? You will ballevo In
me, say It, Rachel, always?" .
She gently lepeated the word. Ho
"I believe you," he said, walking on
again. "You can ti list me, dear,"
She drew closer to him with teais In
her eyes. She could not speak Just
then, und the daik, stealthy figure still
followed, watching their every move
ment, until they reached tho hotel.
"Tomonow 1 will speak to your fa
ther without fall, Rachel. I would
have spoken before, but I was a cow
ard, afiald of disturbing our bliss"
He kissed her there, In tho dim light,
where they thought no one would see.
It wns a quiet good-night, nlmost sad
In Its eamestness. Rachel inn Into the
hotel. Ouy, feeling more nt ease, went
and stood by the ssn. He took out a
cigarette, struck a match aud lighted
It, then putted gently at It, gindually
growing more calm.
The sea lay at his teet a great, black,
rolling mass, with a white line ot
waves beating regularly upon tho
shingle. He watched a few moving
lights far away from the land, then a
volie broke suddenly into his reetle.
"Hallo, old fellow, what ate you do
It wns a golfing friend of Guy's, an
Hngllshmnn, who, like himself, wat
taking an evening stroll.
Noy a few das back these two
young men had had a lather seveio
altet cation on the cliffs over an impor.
tant golf question. A gendnime and a
few passeis-by had watched with in
terest the hot-tempered young Jngllsh
nien, who had not been able lo make
up their quarrel, but had parted with
Indlgnnnt wotds. The oulookeis haa
shaken their heads gravely, wondeilng
what would be tho end of such a violent
quiii i el.
His anxiety nbout Rachel made Ou
long for sjmpathy from almost bis only
Rnglish friend In that fotelgn tpwn; so
anxious to fotglve and foiget, he said
his ft lend:
"Come for a walk, Rivers."
Martin Rivers had a kind heart. He
knew by the tono of his friend's voice
that something wns tumbling him, so
he muttered lather gruflly:
"Shako hands, old fellow; you have
something on your mind. Let us see
If I can help you In any way."
Guy willingly shook his Mend's
hand, nnd they left the sea and walkea
silently through tho town. That dark
figure still followed them. They passed
away from the houses on the edge of
the cliff. Relow them wns the sea,
and all nbout them lay gorse bushes,
golden and heavy with blossoms, de
noting their piesence In the dim light
by a rich, peach-IIke scent. Tho daik
figure came to a standstill behind a
Then Guy pouted out his troubles to
his friend, Martin Rivers.
"Mat tin," he said, slightly raising
his voice above the noise of the waves,
"I believe that she and I nre meant
for eneh other. Surely nothing can
ever part us."
His friend was about to unswei him
Thete was a moment's stillness, then
a sound of the leport of a firearm, some
smoke, a Hush ot light, a whizzing
sound through the air, a cry of pain,
and Mnrtln Rivers was lying stretched
upon tho ground Guy stood perfectly
still for a moment. He took one hasty
look around, but no one was In sight.
Hi bent dwn by his friend's still form.
"Martin," he tried, "old chap, what
has happened? Ale you badly huit.'"
No answei The little wnves still
lapped and cooed and whlspeied umong
themselves below, and a fnint wind
1 untied through the goise bushes, (in
stiuck a match and held It near his
"Good God"' he exclaimed "He Is
The bullet had enteied at n vital
point, and the dark eaith beneath his
head was drenched with blood.
Then a sott of frenzy ennm over Guy.
Ho wns young and inexpeilenced. The
sudden blow wns too gieat for him.
He did not realize, he could not under
stand that his friend wns dead.
Ho tubbed the cold hands, ho un
fastened the wet collar, ho did all In
his power for him.
"I must go for help," he said aloud,
stuggerlng to his feet.
At last realization began to creep
into ins mum as no stood looking down
upon tho awful stillness of tho pros
tiato tlgtiie, and a feeling of agony
seemed to cut right Into his hcatt.
"I shull be suspected," ho muttered,
"because of that quarrel, and no one
knows that wo mado It up tonight.
They will tall mo the mutdeicr, I have
the murks of blood upon my hands.
They will not believe my words when
I suy I am an Innocent mnn. I had
better dlo too. My poor Rachel! My
love! My love!"
Then he stood upon tho veiy edge of
the cliff looking down upon the daik
water. What could be easier than to
die there nt once, alone und unseen?
Would not his death prevent nn In
finite amount of pain nnd uneettnlnty
both for Rachel and himself? Then he
glanced up to the sky, and he saw a
gentlo, crave star looking straight
down upon him. It brought a vision
ot Rachel's sweet, pure face to his
mind. She had promised to trust him
always; she had repeated tho word
over to him many times. Great sobs
shook his frame.
"I will not bo a coward," ho said.
"I will nt least do what I can to free
myself from the false accusation which
Is sure to fall upon me. I will get
away. I will leave tho place at once.
I will tell them first nt that cottage
near that thcro Is a dead mnn's body
to be burled."
Guy had seen very little of tho dark
side of life.
This was the first great crisis, the
first real pain that ho had ever known,
nnd It wns fast bringing out the noble
side of his character. He determined
to net so us to save nnother from as
much pa'ln as possible. llv turned
away fiom tho sea, but tho minutes
had flown. Ho wns too late! Steps
were coming down tho road from the
town; lights nnd voices, the regular
tramp of feet nnd tho clanging of
s words were fast drawing near.
Guy's first impulse was to run In the
opposite direction, but he stopped him
self nt once.
"if I fly nnd they chase me like a
fox or a harp they will at once think
mo guilty. ?o, I will walk quietly
toward them and tell them what has
happened. I nm Innocent, and I must
not net the part of a murderer."
The steps prew quite close, nnd four
gendaimes stopped In fiont of him.
"Monsieur." said tho olllcer of the
party, "a gentleman who wns on this
load a few minutes ngo has Just sent
us here. He heard a shot fired and a
cry. He said he saw you shoot and
then thtow tho revolver over the cliff.
Monsieur, ho desctlbed your figure to
inc. and suiely It Is you 1 saw quar
lellng n few days ngo on tho cliffs with
"I have seen no one," said Guy. "I
am an Innocent mnn, Theie is the
dead body. A shot was fired suddenly
when I was standing by him on the
edge ot tho cliff. What gentleman in
formed you of this?"
"Monsler, I do not know ; u stranger,
possibly a traveler passing by this
spot on his way between two towns.
Piobably ho wns seeking a night's
shelter In one of our hotels; he was
horrified, he directed us to come heie."
The gendarme bent down over the
"And heie Is the mails of the bullet,"
he said, "and, Mon Dleu! I lecognlze,
without doubt, tho same gentleman
with whom ou weio qunrrellng tho
other day, and wo find you her, ns
the gentlemnn descilbed. I fear It will
bo a hard case for you, monsieur, a
very hard case, you will come with
us at once."
"Ceitnlnl," Mild Guy. "I must coma
with nu, but I am Innotent. thank
God' i nm an innocent man."
Two of tho men stopped behind with
the body, the others maichcd one on
each side of Guy down the lonely toal
and through the town.
"Stop." ciled Guy, with a look of
ngonv on his face ns they passed the
hotel fncing tho sen; ho teillzed how
haul his enso would be. T'nlrss the
true culprit chose to rotno forward
he, Guy, was sure' to be accused as
the muideior of his friend. Ho hoped
for Justice, for a ttinl which would
result In his Innocence luimr piovol,
nnil ,ct ho saw, as the olllcer of th"
gendaimes had, said, said It would bo
a bind case, a veiy haid eae.
"I must leave a message, a note,
anything forfor out whom I lov.
You will not deprive me or this one
Guy felt for paper and pencil. He
had only a pencil In dipeiatloii h
Inio off his culf and wioe n few
Words upon It.
"To be glvin to Mls Rachel Hei
beit. "A- had thing has happened to me,
daillng. I am wrongly accused of a
wicked action. I tiust all will com
light. Tiust me. dear one. as you
promised; your belief In my innocence
will be my one comfort ami support.
God bless on and help us both.
The olllcer calmly read tho hastily
wiltten llne, thn hnnded the cuff to
the porter at the door of tho hotel.
The little procession passed on un
der Rachel's window anil it terilbl-
weight of Rile! scnied to bow down
Guv's spirit and to chill his veiy heart.
She had been ciulslng In tin- Medlt
cuanean nbout the Italian coast, that
gay little yacht with her white sails
nnd graceful movements. Her be
havior had been peiftct for many
dnys, but one fatal evening she forgot
nil her past good leputatlon and hope-les-sly
sullied It by catching fire. She
lay far ftom land, gently lUing up
and down upon the swell, with flnmes
flying up from her cabin nnd teirlble
panic on board.
They did what they could for her,
but was nil of no use Tho passengers
and (tew had been obliged to take to
fuge In the small bouts and to leave
hor to her fate. It was a quiet even
ing, with Just a soft tegular breez
coming from tho land, thp sea was
still and blue, a very dnrk blue, Just
nfter tho sun hnd set. It had lpft a
red glow In the western sky, and the
bravo little yacht, which had dono
good set vice to her owner, wus rapld
lv binning. The nngiy flames leaped
out scavMiids, and n lurid light shona
upon those who had escaped from the
ilto In the boats. lr one of them lay
u sick man- a binning beam had fallen
upon hi in and fatally Injured him.
Ho was the owner of thp yacht, nnd
row ho wns dying, and likely to pass
uwav very soon, peihupn nt the samo
moment as his vessel in the bows
sat an oldish man nn.l a young girl
watching the burning acht. It wns
Rachel Ileibeit and her father.
Almost Immediately after tho an est
of Guy Dorrlngton, M. PetlJean had
persuaded Mr. Herbci t and his daugh
ter to go for a cruise with him In
his yacht. Mr. Heibeit had gladly
agreed to the plan, and this wns Hip
pnd of It tho owner of the vessel was
dying, nnd the pretty little yacht her
self was also fast passing away.
And Rachel, poor hioken-hearted
Rachel, she was passing through great
tiouble. Guy was now In prison after
his trial, awnltlng his fate. M. Petit
Jean hnd given his evidence against
him, and he had been found guilty.

Rachel had prayed for him: ho hnd
dono all In her power for) him, hut
It was of no use. Guy wnn to dlo far
nway from her, and yet sho trusted
him; she had written to tell him so.
Sho would have gladly died on tho
burning yacht, but tho boats had been
nt hnnd, and Rachel had been the first
to be lifted Into one of them. She sat
now In the bows, pale, still, nlmost
stunned with grief.
"Rnchel, M. PetltJcnn wishes to
speak to you; he Is very 111. I don't
think he can live long."
It wns Mr. Herbert speaking. He
touched his daughter's arm.
"Rnchel, go to him, poor fellow; ho
Is dying, and Is very anxious to speak
Rnchel silently obeyed. She bent
down close to the still form lying In
tho bottom of the cont. She hated the
Frenchman. Ho had come between
her and her lover. He hnd given evi
dence against him. How ho had man
nged to do so sho could never mado
out. She had refused to mnrry him,
nnd yet he hnd still worried her nnd
pained her beyond measure.
"Rachel," gasped the Frenchman
nlrcndy his face wote a death-like pal
lor "I am very weak, but I will strug
gle to Fav what I wish, what must
bo said; I cannot dlo without telling
the truth. I nm wretched now; ma.
l'ol, why did I do that drendful deed!"
The boat roe gently up nnd down
bb she cut through the water towards
the land, and Rnchel still thought of
Guy In his solitude.
"Rachel," gasped M. Potltjean,
catching hold of tho gill's hnnd and
holding It In a feeble, nervous grasp,
"I am the murdeicr; I did It! It was

Ho had raised his voice nnd his
words peemed to pierce through tho
gloom and weight of sorrow which had
bowed down Rachel's fair head.
