CHAPTER VI (Continued).
THK "clnn'' gathering was held In
the schuolhouso across the street.
There was never such a gathering
at least of tho clan. That
which was previously looked upon as a
convention of hot-headed Scotia mani
acs was afterward printed In the his
tory of Inverlachle as the most re
markable lnstanco of volcanic eruption
In all the annals of Jacobltlsm.
It would bo useless to attempt a de
scription of what happened that night.
In, fact, the happening was of that na
ture which defies any description but
confusion. Only the icsult Is certain,
and the nsult was as unexpected as It
was startling. Witness the fact that
one man was carried out of tha school
"OUBe, dead of heart failure
The meeting began quietly enough. It
nad more tho air of a social gathering,
but the fact that everybody was theic
augured something unusual from the be
ginning. In tho first plHce. Janet Glen was
tnere, and Janet seldom went anywhere.
More remarkable was the fact that her
escort was Dr. Tom Wallace, uclrcum
utance which set tho busybodles whis
pering. It seemed as If Tom was gut
ting Into tho tolls of the "diabolical"
Another Interesting item of gossip
was the presence of Peggy Wtillaco with
Captain Kllby from the fort. The Wal
lace family seemed to be pairing off.
Kllby was happy and unaware of any
thing umiBiial about tho affair, until
f"eggy, -a ho had been usual! v bright,
lapsed into tragic silence. That was
about the time when she saw Major
Herbert Fltzwlllliim enter and take a
feat near the front.
The domlnlo was In the cha'r. r-nd the
mi'ftln smi'ted with the hhigipg of a
puni Th'-n tho schoolmaster made n
tyjeech. In which he spoko of Scotland's
jiide and rlory as he did ut all gath
eilligs of the clan. The chairman was
followed by British Will, ho throw
nil diplomacy to the winds, declared
that the throne of England was ''tot
terln' to i tumble." that Napoleon was
iming to Invado "our shores," nnd that
it dldna worry him at all, execju that
lie regretted the absence of a rightful
King of Scotland.
He was Intel i upted In tho middle of a
mildly Hung pie '9 of redltlon by Major
ntzwlllldm, who stood up and threat
ened to arrout the speaktr foi treason.
That was the beginning of It Tho
Jacobite blood was up. Tho majoi and
the King of England were bcth hissed,
nnd tho chairman raved the situation
teinnoiarllv- nv allowing Davie Bin.

when the door of tho school'iousc
opened to vlmit .in appurltlcn of the
roval S'uart! I
The lH.LiHaS of tno man to tne last
pretender wan InsMnttv notpd, even by
thehO who had en only a picture of
the fconrile pilnce. The appearnnce of
any man In .Stnait tartan would havo
been i nouh to precipitate a ellmnx Just
then, hut therj was mora than that
An old min named Cameron was In
the audience. He was calltd "Rock of
pps" for his wnlmv of euis. nnd ho
h.nl f iurfht with the Donnle prince at
rullodc'i. For vwa old Cameron had
been as one dead to the wcrld. But at
Flcht of the man In the dooiway. liU
vision suddenly cleared, his seniles re
gained momentary vouth. He sprang 'o
Ills fpet. called tho prlncs by name,
rushed forward with a shrill Oiiellc
war cr. and fell at the fett of Mar
garet Dalrlelrh. who accompanied the
ji-lnee. When thev picked up the old
innn, he was dead.
In an instant the schoolhouse was
pandemonium. The people had little
thought for tho dead man, save as
tragedy added to the drama of the mo
ment, and that one who had known
Bonnie Prince Charlie had recognized
tho figure In the doorway. It was a
Btuart. The rumor was truth! A
prince had come again to Scotland.
Tho scene that followed was never
described, and could not be. Dr. Wal
lace and Ktlbv escorted Janet Olen and
Peggy through a yelling mass of hlnod
flrert madmen. It was easy enough to
escape by one door when the mob was
bent upon reaching another that door
In which the apparition had nppeared
and where old "Rock-ofAges" Cameron
lav huddled and still.
But the prince had disappeared, too.
and at his heels had gone the Infuriated
but self-sattlsfled major. Half an hour
later the mob had abandoned the school
house and was clamoring before the
dominie's house, demanding that the
prince show himself. Tnat was all the
people wished that the prince (show
himself to their loy-frenzled eyes.
Through tho night they stood thoie,
singing old Jacoblto war songs, hissing
the English King, and shouting for tho
prince. Jamie Dalgleish, half prcud,
half frightened, at the result of the
gathering, stood In the doorway of his
house and declared that the prince had
not returned Not until It was made
clear that the house had been locked
and that the dominie himself had open
ed it upon his return from the meeting;
not until six chosen men from the
crowd had gone through the house and
found no prince, wero the people sat
isfied that Caslmlr was not there.
But all through the night the uproar
continued. The town was In open re
bellion, with British Will clanging a
bell at tho head of the rebels.
Mijor Fltzwllllam had been tho fli-bt
to , uncertain that Oaslnv.r had not taken
jefuge In the dominie's house when ho
abruptly escaped from the school houco

Inverlachle to tho military road w-hlch,

lage of St Catherine's, where there waa
a ferry to the stronghold of the Duke

Fltzwllllam followed Caslmlr until
satisfied that the man wns not bent
upon making an escape There was a
fair moon shining through ragged
clouds, so It was an easy matter to
keep the quarry In sight At a point
where the road climbed over a horn of
rocks. Charles Edwanl paused. Pres
ently he left the load and climbed to
the top of the roulders which looked

troubled him vaguely. "Did ou land

Ho turned to tho sea again. The major,
troubled by the man's knowledge of his
Christian name, and utterly at a loss
for further words, chewed his underllp
and gritted his teeth together. Tho man
was laughting at him playing with
him d-J- him!
Five minutes later, when Charles Ed
ward turned his head, tho major had
disappeared. It seemed a little matter
to the prince, who straightway resumed
his reverie there upon the rocks over
looking tho sea.
Fltzwllllam was presently back In the
officers' room at the fort. Kllby had
not yet teturned. The major sneered as
he glanced at the clock. He had seen
tho captain's companion at the gather
ing. He thought he knew where Kllby
was tne root:
For half an hour he continued to
pace up and down the room, his hatred
and fear of the man on the rocks
hatred born of Intellectual Inferiority,
fear born of elusive reminiscence grow
ing every moment as he thought of the
manner In which Charles Ldward had
coony answereu or evaaca nis pertinent
or impertinent, questions,
"Caslmlr! Caslmlr! Yes, yes. The

He suddenly came to a dead halt. Over
his Hushed, full-blooded race spread a
hue that was more of lemlntscent guilt
than of terror.
"My nod'" ho whispered.
And that was all, while the ticking of
the big clock In the outer guardroom
acme distinctly through the heavy
Fltzwllllam's memory had returned.
