"SHE IS BCFFKIUNO FROM SHOCK."
It was nearly nine o'clock at night
when they got back to the Bayou
house. The return had been a slow
and difficult one, but the rescue was
accomplished. The girl was tenderly
cared for, and the next morning Hen
dricks said: "Our knowledge now, I
hope, of what is going on iu the world
Is not entirely cut off."
Fenning confessed that he did not
"I will show you," replied Hendricks,
"but first we must hear from above."
It was the same hour at which Mrs.
Hendricks and Calicot had ridden
away the day before when word came
from the doctor.
"Miss Endicott has disappeared." he
said. "There has been a search mado
for her and the men report that an
armed force must have been in the
woods last night, as they have discov
ered the fresh marks of horses' hoofs.
Two of the marshal's men have been
sent south on the search, but I believe
that is a blind."
"What does Mrs. Hendricks say
"She has not expressed an opinion to
me. If the girl has been abducted, she
will disclose everything."
"Arc you sure of that?"
"Positively. She is a clairvoyant. I
believe Calicot has got her safely in
charge of experts. She is the only per
son who can describe your hidden oper
ation without being with you."
"Then we should not have permitted
her *o e: 'ape."
' certainly not. I wouldn't give a
farthing for any of your schemes if she
is in their hands. She says her father
was murdered by the captain and sho
can describe the captain in tho act.
Don't it occur to you from what is go
ing on that there must be treachery
"It looks like it. To circumvent it,
you must come down immediately."
"But Mrs. Hendricks will know
where I am and may take advantage of
"Nevertheless, come down at once."
The moment tho doctor arrived at
the bottom of the shaft, Hendricks
said: "I have got Miss Endicott here.
You might have guessed it. If she can
be of service to the government, she
can be of service to us. Can you put
her en rapport with Mrs. Hendricks?"
"Have you got any of Mrs. Hendricks'
"Yes, there is a packet of it. The
hair was cut off when she wore the
After explanations from Hendricks
of the abduction which elicited un
bounded admiration from the doctor,
they proceeded to the rooms that had
been set apart for Miss Endicott.
Hendricks, it should be stated, had
provided his retreat with several ne
gro servants. They had their own
quarters and several of them were
women, one of wftom had been as
signed to take care of Miss Endicotf
They found the young woman sitting
in a chair in a normal condition and
"You have made me a prisoner again
in this place," she said, "and it will
"My dear young lady," said the doc
tor, "you are not a prisoner. In a few
days you will be restored to your
friends, if you have any."
"I must look for my father," she
said. "He is the only friend I have."
"I have come down to take care of
you. You shall make a confidant of
me. I'm your friend, ifo one here
has the desire to harm you. We must
find out about your father. 1 dare say
you have neglected your meal, as
"I cannot eat," she said.
"But you know I told you that you
mxist eat. If you do not obey me,
what can I do for you?" and the doctor
shrugged his shoulders. A moment
later ho said: "Here, take my arm
and let us walk about a bit. You must
keep your blood in circulation."
She let him assist her and passively
rested her arm in his. Then they
walked out into the arena, tho doctor
talking to her in a fatherly way. It
was not more than seventy-five feet to
the house where tho dynamo and en
gine were running. The big door stood
open. There was a common wheel
chair immediately in front of the door.
"Sit down hero for a moment," said
the doctor, "and look at the wheel."
She obeyed him. The almost har
monic buzz of the great iron circle was
not unpleasant. She looked at the
swiftly-revolving mass with slight in
terest. The doctor stepped baok and
waited. Hendricks had remained be
hind. There was something in the
motion that kept her gaze steadily
fixed. Five minutes passed. Her
eyes lost their stare. The doctor
stepped softly up, looked into her
face, picked up her hand and let it fall
limp upon her lap. Then he beckoned
"Help me wheel her back," he said.
"Sho is hypnotized. I never saw so
fine a sensitive."
When she was once more in the room
from which tho doctor had taken her,
Hendricks watched the proceedings
with interest, but without the awe
which this phenomenon inspires in
"Have you got the hair?" asked the
Hendricks handed him the packet
and sat down expectantly. The doc
tor took somo of the dark locks and
put them in the hand of the girl. Her
fingers closed over them. Sho stared
into vacancy. Her mouth twitched at
the corners. Hor face was rigid.
"Do you see Mrs. Hendricks?" the
An audible murmur came from the
eirl. She leaned Slightly forward,
"Oli, there are so many men." she said
in a plaintive monotone.
"What are they doing?"
"They are soldiers. They are run
ning in all directions."
"Yes, yes," said the doctor. "Do you
see any women?"
"Xow —they are gone out of the air—
it is dark and light. Yes, they come
together. Ah, it is the fatal place.
There is the rail around it. The ground
shakes. What is that awful throb? It
Is not pleasant here. I choke. The
light hurts my eyes, but it is dark."
"Do you not see a woman?" asked
tho doctor. "Look well. There it a
woman —you mutt see her."
"So many men," said the girl. "Per
haps they will look for my father.
There is the sound of the train—there
are more men coming—" Her face as
sumed a painful immobility. She
gasped, threw up her arms, uttered a
shriek and fell forward. The doctor,
who sprang to catch her, found both
her hands over her ears and h°r arms
were rigid. One of her hands still
clasped the hair and he could not ex
tricate it from her fingers.
For quite an hour he worked with
restoratives over her. Hendricks
walked up and down in the arena and
At last the doctor appeared. "I've
got her around," he said; "but it's the
most extraordinary thing I ever heard
of. She is suffering from shock."
"What, do you make of her talk?"
asked Hendricks, somewhat impatient
"My dear sir," said the doctor. "I
don't know what to make of it. But I
am bound to tell you that these ex
traordinary creatures not only have
clear tight but at times prescience. It
may be that she saw and described
something that has not yet taken
place. The great Zchokke often did
it in very much tho same way."
"That may be very interesting to
science," replied Hendricks; "but
what we want described is the thing
that is happening at present; that
ought to be a much easier matter. The
hair trick did not work."
"There is no infallibility about it,"
said the doctor. "It may work four
times and fail on tho fifth."
"Then by all means make the other
four experiments immediately."
"Impossible. I wouldn't guarantee
her life if sho doesn't recover from
the shock. She acts like a creature
who has been in a terrible explosion."
Finding that there was no moving
the doctor from this decision Hen
dricks, with his usual tact, immediate
ly turned his mind to other matters.
Close confinement underground was
telling upon all the inmates and even
upon Hendricks himself. He noticed
that the long deprivation of sunlight
made everybody gloomy and doubtful.
Up to within a week his men had all
taken regular turns in the air. In this
respect they had nothing to complain
of. They had gone out at the western
exit in groups—had hunted and fished
and enjoyed themselves and he had
lost none of them. The privilege had
been shut off as soon as the regiment
got away and the one hundred men
left behind, although made up of the
workmen and help of the establish
ment, were becoming restive under the
restraint. In spite of the fact that the
ventilation had been improved very
much and the variations of temperature
were scarcely appreciable in the ro
tunda, which was not only the most
spacious, but the most enjoyable pari
of the Laran, the doctor found that he
was encountering a new group of com
plaints and he had the good sense to
attribute them to the condition of con
The day after the failure of the doc
tor's experiment with Miss Endicott,
the general, who had been away on a
mission of importance, suddenly re
turned. lie came in at the bayou en
trance late at night, but he reported to
Hendricks, who got out of bed anil the
two sat in consultation until morning.
Whatever the nature of their confer
ence was, its importance and the ur
gency of events were inado apparent
by the general's words at its close.
"We have just three days to get the
rest of our men out —that leaves them
five days to assemble. They must be
in St. Mary's on the sth. You have
no suspicion, have you, that the new
move is known in any way to these
officers above ground?"
"I know absolutely nothing as to
what these men suspect. For some
reason Mrs. Hendricks is reticent. The
only thing to do is to go ahead and dis
regard them. They have got no posse
in the neighborhood, for I have been
over the ground."
At this point the doctor came in and
announced that Miss Endicott, who had
not been out of her bed since the shock,
was in one of her trances and they
might, he thought, renew the experi
ment in a guarded way.
Hendricks excused himself to the
general anil went to Miss Endicott's
bedside, where, after turning ont the
negress, the two men sat down. The
doctor then proceeded as before, and
when the girl's eyes were fixed upon
vacancy, he said: "Tell roe what you
"Yes, I will tell you," she replied,
as if in somo terror of the doctor.
"Let me be sure. I see a woman. I
know her. She is standing in the cur
tains at the window—she—yes, she has
the curtain pulled about her —sho is
"Look well. What is she listen
"I cannot telL Yes —some one is
walking on the balcony—tho window
is open—it is Miss Laport and a young
man. They sit down on a bench near
"Can you hear what they say?"
"No, I cannot hear. Some one is CQpi-
Ingjn to tho rgom."
"Who is it?"
"I fe«l it is a man but I cannot »ce
"Can you not hear what he hays?"
"I cannot hear what he says—l can
only hear what the woman say*."
"What does she say?"
The girl's eyes started from her.
"Oh, there are the soldiers eominjj.
The air is cold. They hare not takeu
I down the iron railing. My God —that
is the train. I hear it—they will all be
killed." Then with a wild shriek, she
threw up her arms and with u shudder
put her hands upon her cars and be
came to all appearances lifeless. But
a little foam oozed from the corner of
Hendricks was puiiled and nnoyed.
There was an uncanny air to the
girl's utterances that affected him in a
manner peculiar to himself. lie may
be said to have resented the intima
tion of prescience. He, as a rule, j
avoided and disliked mysferies He
did not like to acknowledge to himself
that something was going on above
ground that was suspicious and that
Mrs. Hendricks had him at a disad
vantage. He turned the matter over 1
in his mind and viewed it from every
conceivable point. There seemed only
one way out of the growing uncer
tainty and it was to take a body of
men, surround the house and make
the officers prisoners.
Just as he had about settled to this
conclusion Mrs. nendricks summoned
him to the telephone.
"I want to warn you," she said, "if
any voice but mine comes through this
instrument not to answer it. They
are all away on the grounds at this
moment and I can talk to you. I can
not tell if they suspect that these |
wires that apparently go out on the
poles, lead in another dire«tion, but
they are liable to use them at bome
moment. They have already made re
marks about the chimney and the
mails and have ominously kept silence
about Miss Endicott's disappearance.
But I cruessed the truth when they
found the horses' hoof marks und
brought in the flask which smelled of
the captain's Medford rum. If you
precipitate matters now, you may
wreck your St. Mary's scheme. If Cal
icot knows something about your past
—how much I cannot learn. He may

I believe he is the only man who has
put together the threads of your career.
In a personal encounter he may gee
away. If you entrap him, there will be
an armed force quartered 011 us. The
best plan is to keep him here in lux
urious ease by every blandishment I can
offer until the St. Mary's affair is over,
lie will prefer this place to the Bayou
house, if indeed he suspects that place.
He is a shrewd man but a susceptible
one. Leave him in my hands."
Hendricks was not led by this com
munication into a moment's inadver
tence. He could not tell if it were an
honest conviction or part of some
scheme of the woman's. He did not
dare tell her his own conclusions and
thus put her on her guard. He gave
her no intimation of his fast maturing
plan. He merely asked questions. The
result was that he obtained from her
further acknowledgments to the fol
"Calicot is no ordinary inau. I fear
him because I cannot read him. I have
a growing l belief that he has industri
ously put together your whole career—
made his own theory—kept it to him
self and ia staying here to corroborate
it before putting the machinery of law
in operation, or making his plan pub
lic. He has shown an unmistakable
admiration for me. He professes to
have never met a woman whose intel
lectual gifts so impressed him. But I
cannot tell how far this is his suscepti
bility or his game. Yesterday he said
my gifts would be of inestimable value
to the social system if arrayed on the
side of the normal forces of society. I
tried all my art to get him to say how
far he thought they were arrayed
against the conventional order, but I
could not get him to divulge anything.
At another time he said: 'You are in
constant communication with Mr. Hen
dricks.' But he changed the subject
adroitly when I tried to find out how
he knew it. This will show you that
if he Btays here it is only a question of
time when he discovers our means of
intercourse and how necessary it is
that I should sparingly use it. Yoa
know me too well to think for a mo
ment that I am superstitious or vision
ary, but this cool, plausible, mysterious
man somehow stands in my instinctive
feelings for the slow, inevitable, dis
passionate, solidarity of man that we
have raised our hands against. I have
exhausted all my woman's ingenuity
in trying to discover the weak spot in
his nature. He has, so far, baffled me.
I cannot tell if he has a weak spot or
is only the cleverest man I ever met in
hiding it. It would be a supreme tri
umph to outwit such a representative
ag'ent intellectually. It cannot bo done
in your way. You must handle events.
Leave me to deal with motives. In
any case, trust me."
The result of this was just what we
might expect in a man of Hendricks'
unplastic will and aggressive nature.
Ho was not convinced. He did not
like the woman's weak admission of
something august and invincible in
the social order. lie saw nothing in
tho statements and arguments that
might not be put forward as part of a
subtile scheme to gain time and to
keep him helplessly out of the way till
her own security was attained. He
did not however confer with his asso
ciates, but went to the oflice and
plunged into a deep consultation with
the general and Kenning upon the
topography of the country around St.
Mary's. They had county and town
ship maps with every road and house
marked upon them and they were en
grossed in the details of a miltary
campaign. But that morning the
doctor had said that there were six of
the men who had demanded to be let
out for a few hours. They had
pledged themselves to keep away from
the roads and merely go into the bush
to hunt squirrels aud would be back at
night. The doctor advised their re
lease for a time and as they were men
in whom tho general had every con
fidence, the permission was given with
These six men went immediately
north, hung about the grounds of the
Laran house, encountered the two
deputies who were iu the woods and
killed them. They then returned at
night feeling assured that they had re
moved the obstacles to their liberty.
Hendricks heard of it first from Mrs.
"The two deputies," sho said, "have
been killed at the edge of the blue
grass opening on tho Smoky Hill
stretch. They were killed by your men
yesterday afternoon C'alicot senttheir
bodies on to Clinton in a wagon, and
Lieut. Stocking has gone with them.
They had not been gone an hour when
four mounted men arrived to take their
place. I saw them from my chamber
window. It had a [>eculiar effect upon
me. They seemed to be the advance j
guard of the race Calicot is as suave
and unconcerned as ever. We ate
breakfast together. I expressed the
greatest amount of concern and
womanly horror at the deed. He
merely remarked that it was an inci
dent calculable and of small weight in
estimating ultimate results. 'A mere
skirmish.' Then he changed the con
versation to a trifling subject- We shall
now havo six men instead of four.
Something tells mo that if you succeed
in getting rid of these men, twelve more
will take their pluce. It's like lighting
an incalculable machine.**
Hendricks* plans were decided upon
in five minutes after this communica
tion lie called in the general and ex
plained the situation to him. "We
must take this bull by the horns. Pick
twenty-five of the best men: stock them
with the best horses we have g*it. They
are to be timed to arrive at the l.aran

will go up ar.d meet Calicot at that
hour I don't want him killed. We
must make him our prisoner. As for
the rest, let them take the chances. I
shall probably hear from Mrs. Hen
dricks to-night, but I shall not tell her
of my plan. We cannot use Fenning,
for he mnst go to St Mary's. Have
you got the stuff off?"
"Yes," said the general, "the last

THE TAILER TROUf.
A Lusty Denizen of Southern Eng
flow the FUh Got ft* Peculiar Name—lt
It Very VoractooA and Not aft
All Particular ai to
In several of the shallow and slow
flowing streams of the south of Eng
land—notably the upper waters of the
Lea, the Ver, and the Mlmram. all
Hertfordshire streams—the "tailer" Is
well known to the exasperated dryfiy
fisherman. "And what on earth is the
'tailer'?" the angler not acquainted
with these and other similar waters
may inquire without shame.
The "tailer," says the Pall Mall Bud
get. may be best described as a rather
gross feeder, destitute of the artistic
instinct and the culture which the dry
fly fisherman associates with the
trout that can only be taken by an
exact imitation of natural fly. It la
called a "taller" because, when lta
head Is plunged Into the weeds In pur
suit of freshwater shrimp, its tail
breaks the surface of the stream and
waves in the air. At the commence
ment of the fishing season the "tail
ing" trout is usually very busy, and
very observable in several famous riv
ers. At this season of the year the
larger fish are. as a rule, in indifferent
or in absolutely bad condition; they
are exceedingly hungry after the ex
haustion of spawning operations, and
are consequently not in the humor to
waste time on an occasional small
olive dun. or some other insignificant
fly. Water-shrimp is fat and appe
tizing. and in many streams exceed
ingly plentiful. It is not surprising,
therefore, that it forms the staple dish
of trout, which the pangs of hunger in
the early spring assail almost unceas
ingly. In early June the big trout
will eschew water-shrimp for May-fly,
and later on in the season, when they
are in fine condition, will feed with be
It is not much use, as a rule, fishing
up stream with a "dry" over a "tailer."
The fish is so engrossed in its pig-like
operations among the weeds that it
treats with contempt a solitary little
dun endeavoring to tickle its nose.
The best lure for a "tailer" is a big and
gaudy alder, fished down stream with
in a few inches of the fish, and worked
like a salmon fly. At such a lure a
"tailer" will come sometimes with a
fierce dash, that brings the heart of
the angler right into his throat The
writer had the pleasure of landing a
five-pound trout, hooked by a friend
in this manner in a Hertfordshire
stream on an early spring evening. A
much heavier trout, "tailing" under
the bank in an awkward place, was
afterwards assailed, and pricked sev
eral times, but in vain.
A "tailer" is often difficult to scare,
and even when actually risen and
pricked will recommence feeding In a
few minutes, oblivious of danger. The
position of the fish, its head buried in
the weeds and its tail waving like a
flag in the air, naturally renders It
easy to approach and difficult to alarm
on such occasions. Moreover, a
seems to riot in Its rather nasty meal.
The water-shrimp glut takes posses
sion of the big fish as completely as the
What creature the "tailer" takes the
big alder, fished in the manner de
scribed, to be is very uncertoln. Some
few people assert that fish take a fly
under such conditions not from mo
tives of hunger so much as of anger
mingled with curiosity. But practical
anglers and naturalists laugh at such
fantastic theories. No doubt the trout
takes the alder as the salmon takes the
silver doctor—because it looks good to
eat. But what particular food it la
mistaken for remains a mystery.
