CHAPTER. VII (Continued.!
The color on Hanbury's face deepened.
Hia eyes Hashed. It wai Intolerable that
this low, ill -aha pen creature abould re
fer to Dora, to Dora to whom he ws
engaged, who was to be his trite, at "a
Woman In the caae." Anyway, there waa
nothing for it bnt to try to mnxsle Leigh.
He forced" himself to aay calmly: The
lady who waa with me is "
"Yea. She told me abc gave yon her
aame and mine. Well, Mr. Leigh, you
Are good enougu to any yon remember
me as a speaker. I am seriously think
ing of adopting a public career. I could
not, for a time at all events, appear on
any platform of disputed principles if this
anfortunate fainting of mine got into the
papers. Some opponent would be certain
to throw it In my face. Will yon do me
the very grea persona! favor of keeping
the matter to yourself?"
A personal favor from me to you. Ou
what grounds do you put the request?"
On any honorable grounds you please.
Ton said yoa were not rich "
"I did not say I was corrupt." II it
manner was quick, abrupt, final. Ills
face darkened Ilia eyes glittered. "Mr.
XIanbury, you are a rich man "
"Xot rich, surely."
"Ton are rich, compared with any man
in this street You are a rich man. You
got your money without work or risk.
Yon are you tig and clever, and tall and
traight, and healthy and good-looking,
and eloquent and dear to the moat beau
tiful lady I ever laid eyes on "
"Curse him!"' thought Ilanbury, bnt he
held his peace, remained without move
ment of limb or feature.
"Rich, good-lookiu?, sound, beloved, elo
quent, young. Look at me. I'oor, ill
favored, marred anil claimed, loathed, un
sifted in speech, middle-aged. Do not
atop me. I have no chance if I allow you,
a gentleman cf your eloquence, to speak
against me. Thick of it all, and then
work out a little calculation for mc, and
tell me the result. Will you do so can
didly, fairly, honestly?"
"Yes, indeed, I will."
"Very well. You who are gifted, as 1
ave snid, come to me who am aSlieted,
as I have said, and ask me to dv yon a
favor, ask me to sell yon a favor. Sup
pose the favor you ask me to do cost me
den, at bow much do yon estimate its

"A hundred. Anything you like."
"X am not thinking of money."
Sor am I. Anything tenfold returned
to yoa I will freely give."
"Walt a moment. Let me think a
Leigh sat with his chin sunken deeply
em his chest, nnd bis eyes fixed on the
floor. Then be spoke in a low tone, a
tone half of reverie:
"Nature deals in wonders, and I am
one of tbem. And 1, in turn, deal in won
ders, and there are many of tbem. If 1
chose I could jhow you the most wonder
ful clock in all the world, and I could
how yoa the most wonderful gold In all
the world, more wonderful a thousand
times than mystery gold. But I will not
show you these thinps now. 1 will show
yen a more wonderful thing still. Will
yon come with me a little way?"
"Yes. but you have not set me tbat
aoestinn in arithmetic yet."
"I cannot do so until you have come n
little way with me. 1 want to show you
the most wonderful thing you ever saw."
"May I ask what it is?"
"You need not be afraid."
"Why need not I be afraid 7"
"Because yoa nre not hump-backed
and chicken-breasted and lop-sided and
dwarfed and hideous."
"Bnt what ire you taking me to seer"
"Something more wonderful and more
precious than any mystery gold, than my
own miracle gold or my clock, and yet of
a kind common enough."
"But why should I go?"
"Come, end if you a?k me that when
yon have seen, 1 will ask nothing fur my

"Only a woman."
They descended the stairs.
That morning when Edith Ornce fell
asleep In the corner of the third-class
carriage, on her way from Millway to
the city, she sank into the most profound
When she opened her eyes again they
had arrived at the next town. She was
conscious of being shaken by tbe shoul
der; she awoke and saw opposite her a
stout, kind-faced country woman, with
a basket on her arm. The woman said:
"They want your ticket."
A ticket collector standing at the seat,
impatient of delay, was flicking the tick
eta in his hand. She started and colored,
and sat upright with all taste and began
searching quickly, anxiously, despairing
ly. "11 can't And my ticket."
"It's a bad Job. then," (aid t'je col
lector. The train had stopped and two passen
gers got out, tbe one who had spoken w
her saying: "I hope it will be all right, my
dear You don't look as if 7on was up
to anything bad. You don't took like one
of them swindling girls tbat tbey sent to
prison for a fortnight ian week."
"Qhl" cried Kditb, piteously, as sbe
stepped out on the pVUform. She covered
her face with her bands and burst into
tears She feit completely overwhelmed.
IS If she should die. Tbe collector and
two trainmen were standing ronnd ber.
Waiting until sbe should ier herself
Presently a foarta man ct.me up slowly
from the further end of the train and
stood among the three men.
"What is the matter?" he asked softly.
Has anything happened to the lady! is
A shiver went through Edith. The
eras aomethin familia la the voice, but

"looh. money!" said the newcomer,
contemptuously. "1 have money. Where
has the lady come from? How much is
the fare? Hre you are." The new
comer held out hia hand to the collector
with money in it.
"This gentleman offers to pay. miss."
said the collector, turning to Edith. "Am
t to take the money?"
Tbe girl swayed to and fro, and did not
answer. It was plain she had heard what
bad been said. Her movement was an
acknowledgment she had beard. She did
not anawer because she did not know
what to sey. Two powerful emotions
were conflicting In her. The feeling of
weakness was passing away. She was
trying to choose between Jail (for so the
matter seemel to her) and deliverance at
"Of coarse the lady will allow me to
arrange this little matter for her. She
can pay me back at any time. I will give

at her. With a cry of astonishment he
let his stick fall and threw up bis arms.
"Miss Grace! Miss Urace. as I am alive!
Miss Urace here! Miss Grace here
He dropped bis arms. His cry and
manner bereft ber of the power of speech.
She felt abashed and confounded. Sbe
seemed to have treated badly this man
who had Jnst delivered her from a serious
and humiliating difficulty.
"Pray excuse me," he said, bowing low
and raising his bat as he picked np his
stick. "The sight of you astonished me
out of myself. I thought you were miles
and miles away. I thought yon were at
Eltham House. To what greet misfor

He hurried her into the moving train.
She sat drawn back, pale and stuuneu in
t a seat while he, lifting bis hat, left ber,
returning only when tbey reached the
' city. Here he Insisted on securing a cab
(for her. Riving the driver bis fare and
the address before sbe had time to hesitate
j or protest. Then he turned briskly away.
Into another, rntil he turned into the
dirtiest and dingiest one he had yet trav
ersed. The ground floor of one of the bouses
was devoted to commerce. The floor, as
fnr in as one could see. was littered with
all kinds of odds and ends of metal ma
chines and utensils and Implements. On
a washed-out board, in washed-out white
letters, over the door, were tbe words
"John Timmons," In Urge letters, and be
neath in small letters, once black and now
a streaky gray, "marine store dealer."
Into tbe misty twilight of tills house cf
bankrupt and forgeless Vuloan Leigh dis
appeared. If a listener bad been at the back of the
store, behind the boiler of a donkey en
gine, or leaned over the head of the dark
cellar In tbe left corner, he would have
heard the following dialogue carried on
by careful whispers In the darkness be
low: "Yea. I bare come back sooner than 1
expected. I went to Milwaukee yesterday
morning to consult a very clever mechanic
there about the new movement for the fig
ures of time In my clock."
"You told me you were going away."
"My friend not only put me right abont
the new movement, but when I told bim

my discovery of the combination in met

market for me If 1 was sure the new com

course. 1 told him the supply would be
limited until I could arrange for a proper
laboratory and for help. I explained that
no patent could protect all the processes
of manufacture and that for the present
ibe method must be a profonnd .secret. I
also told him 1 proposed calling my inven

"There's no doubt It will be."

Mrs. Grace lived at No. 38, half way
j down the street. Sbe rented the first Boor

That Ifcmrsday mora'ng when Bdtth
.Hehtad frecn the oah, hUe. Grace waa
lout at the placid, droh srrM. With aa
' exclamation of surprise anj dismay ike
ran down stairs, let the girl Li. embraced
and kissed her, crying: "My darling! my
darling child! What has Happened? Is
there no such place at nil ns Kltnam
House, or has It been burned down?"
Edith burst into tears. She was at
given to weeping, but the relief at finding
herself at borne after the anxiety and
adventures through which she nnd gone,
stoke bar down, and, with bar arm round
the old woman's waist, sbe u Mrs.
Grace to the sitting room.
Then, In a few words, she told all to tbe
old woman.. She explained bor tf.ijrht by
saying this Mr. Leigh hud wearied her
with attentions. She said nubing jmmt
his having asked her to let him kiss l:er
patrlarchally. She wound up by declar
ing she could not endure him nnd his
objectionable devotion, and taut sl.e bad
come away by the first train, having left
a note to sak the place did not suit her,
and tbat her luggage was to lie sent t-ftt-r
her. Then she told of the Ims of her
ticket and Mr. Leigh's opportune appcut
ance, and last of all, of his promise or
threat of calling.
Tbe story, as It met tbe ears of Mrs.
Grace, did not show Leigh In a very of
fensive light Off and on Mrs. Grace sat
at the window nstil afternoji. At ore
o'clock she ate a light luncheon; having
by a visit to Edith's room found that t he
girl slept, she let ber sleep on. Time slip
ped away, and she began to think that
after all Mr. Leigh might net come. wLen,
lifting her eyes from her work, she saw
two men cross the road and approicn the
house. One of these was the dwarf, '.he
other a complete stranger to ber, a tall,
powerful-looking young man. Tbe two
seemed In earnest discourse. They disap
them ascend and knock. She
peered from view and Mrs, Urace beard
hastened to Edith, whom sbe
found " Jus awake, and told her
that Mr. Leigh had arrived. Tbea
she went bsck to the silting room, and,
when word came np that Mr. Leigh and
a friend wished to see her. sent down an
Invitation for the gentlemen to come up.
"I do myself. Mrs. Grace, the great
pleasure and honor of calling upon you to
inquire after Miss Grace, and l jave
taken the liberty of asking my friend to
keep me company." said the tittle man,
Mrs. Grace, waving ber hand to a couple

The two men sat down. Hanbury felt
uncomfortable at Leigh's bombastic in
troduction, but at tbe moment be was
completely powerless. He felt indignant
at this man calling him a friend, but
Leigh had it In his power to make him
seem ridiculous over a good part of th
city; there was nothing to do but to griu
and bear It.
"I hope Miss Grace has taken no harm
of her fright?"
"No, thank you, Mr. Leigh. I am surt
I don't know what she would have don

The door opened and Edith Urace, p ;!
and impassive, entered the room.
Hanbury made a step forward, and
The little man laid his hand on the
young bub's arm and held him back.
Hanbury looked down at the dwarf is
anger and glanced quickly at the girl.
"My granddaughter, Miss Urace Mr.
John Hanbury, whose speeches I hav
often asked you to read for me, Edith."
Hanbury fell back a pace and bowed
mechanically like one in a dream. H
looked from the dwarf to the girl and
from the girl to tbe dwarf, but could find
no word to say, bad no desire to say s
word. He was completely overcome witt

BREAKING A WILD HORSE.
A Cowboy Rider Wha Didn't Let
I.lttle Thlats Trouble Him.
The coolness of the practiced cow
boy, who feels In duty bound to appear
unhurt and without agitation even
when be may be wounded and possess
ed of every excuse for excitement, la
well Illustrated by an --incident of
rough riding In Idaho, related by a
frontiersman, Just below Asotin, on
the Snake Kir, there Is a cliff at least
fifty feet high, at the foot of which
the deep water of the river winds; It
Is, In fact, rather a cape than a mere
cliff, for the race of tbe rock forms a
sharp. Jutting point around which a
narrow bridle-path runs.
To Asotin there once came a cow-boy
of considerable skill named Billy
Crltes; and to him was brought A wild
horse from a neighboring ranch, which
no one could tame. Billy at once un
dertook the task of riding the animal,
and stood by Impassively while his as
sistants performed the preparatory
task of throwing, blindfolding and
saddling the bronco. When the girth
had been bound on very tightly, the
animal was allowed to get up, and
Crltes mounted lato the saddle. "All
ready r he shouted, and the bandage
was removed from the wild bone's
At the same Instant Billy touched
the horse with his spurs; and the crea
ture. Intent, as wild horses under such
conditions generally are, only on get
ting the rider off his back, began to
"buck" violently. This performance
was repeated for some time, quite In
vain. Crites was far from being tbe
sort of rider who could be dislodged
by this proceeding.
All at once the animal began the next
performance on the bronco program.
He started off on a dead run, and took
the trail down the Snake. The spec
tators looked to see Crites manage to
rein him off this dangerous path, bat
evidently from his unfamillarlty with
the ground, tbe cow-boy did not do so,
but kept straight on.
"He'll be killed'." several yelled. -N
human being can keep a running boras
on the trail around tbat point!"
This was quite true. All riders who
came to this point on the trail dis
mounted, even when their animals wert
walking, and led them around the dan.
gerous place. It was but a sloping
path, and tbe rivor ran swiftly straight
There was a sharp bend before the
point was reached, and Billy and bis
bronco disappeared from the specta
tors' view. This added to their sus
pense. The bronco went straight on to the
very edge of the precipice, and then
paused of his own accord as If fright
ened at the gulf. But the presence of
the awful object on his back overmas
tered the horse's fear of the cliff, and
Standing on the very edge of It he be
gan to buck violently. Billy clung
hard. Tbe first leap of the bronco did
what must have been expected it car
ried him and his rider straight down
tbe precipice and into the current oi
When the spectators, who had fol
lowed on as fast as tbey could, reached
the place, neither cowboy nor bronco
was to be seen. The trail of the ani
mal was plain to the place where hi
had gone off the rock. It waa quits
apparent what had happened.
By a circuitous route the men went
down to the river shore, and followed
along to see if they could find Billy's
body. There was a deep gorge bek
with a bit of shore, and there the
people found Billy Crltes, not dead,
but standing on the shore apparently
unhurt, nnexclted, very wet, and en
gaged In en attempt to fish out with a
pole & drowned horse In the stream. In
order to recover hia saddle and bridle!
When the horse went over the preci
pice' the cow-boy kept his seat, but
left It as soon ts the animal's body had
broken the fall. The bronco waa killed
Instantly, but Crltes swam out quits
unhurt Seeing the men, he yelled to
know why they bad not brought him
a rope, and when this was brought ts
soon recovered hia saddle and bridle.
Be Found His Pocket-Boo k.
A true story, but one stranger than
fiction, and hard to beat Is told and
endorsed by the Hartford Courant,
about the way in wblcb a gentleman
recovered his lost pocket-book.
A gentleman from Philadelphia who
has been In Hartford on business lost
his pocket-book, containing seventy
three dollars, a few evenings ago. He
made Inquiries for It at places where
he had been. Including the Opera
House cafe, where be bad taken some
of his meals, but did not find It Aa
be was walking down Main street, he
beard two men behind him talking.
"Let's stop In the City Hotel and
have a drink," said one. Tbe other In
quired wuere the City Hotel was, and
his companion said It was a little way
down the street
"All right" said the other, "but have
the drink with me. Last night I had
nothing and to-night 1 have seventy
The fact that the amount named
was tbe amount the Philadelphia man
had lost attracted bis notice, and be
turned around to see who was talking.
He recognized the speaker as a man
he had known In Philadelphia.
Stepping aside, he let the two pass,
and followed them Into tbe City Hotel
bar-room. Stepping up to the man wbo
said be had seventy-three dollars, be
"Ton havs my pocket-book, and you
must hand It over. It Is a little red
book, and contains seventy-three dol
lars and a ten-dollar Confederate bill."
The man Indignantly denied It, and
asked his accuser who lie was thnt he
sUoulu dare to make such a charge.
"IH tell you who I am," he repl.'cd,
"and 111 tell you who you are. You
were employed once In the Philadel
phia postoflice, and I arrested you for
stealing and seliine stamps. Now bnn-.l
over the pocket-book or It win go hard
The fellow recognized his accuser,
and at once took the book out of bis
pocket and returned It to the owner,
none of its contents having been dis
turbed. A Thrifty Landlord.

presently returned, bearing on his
shoulders a coffin with silver-plated
handles and lid all complete.

A tousjh passage, ln-leed, for those wbi
AkePaut literally. When some ot tb old
theologians deolared that they ware willing
to be damned for tbe glory ot God, they snll
what no ouo be leved. Paul did not In the
teztmanbe was willing to die forever to

were accursed from Christ; for my brethren,
my kinsmen according to the flesh," 1m
mwuit in the most Tenement of all possible
ways to deolars his anriitr for the salvai Ion
of his relatives and friends. It was a passion
for souls. Not mors than one Christian out
of thousands of Christians feels Ic All ab
sorbing desire for the betterment of the
physical and mental eondition is very oom

tician than I over can be to calculate how
many are, up io an anxiety that sometimes
will not let them slaep iilxhts, planning ltr
