TIIE WITHERED HAND.
By Mavak Crosse, Spinster.
All .tbe afternoon t he rain had poured down
in torrents, and, a3 the early twilight of a bleak
autumnal day gathered over the drear land
scape, I drew closely tho shutters of my oP.lcc
windows, and, turning the gas down, prepared
to enjoy a cozy reverie.
The storm grew louder and fiercer. The
wind howled dismally through the crevices,
and my little wooden sign creaked and groan
ed on its Iron hiDge3.
As I sal lost in the mazy depths of my fancies,
lairyland, there came ? loud and imperative
knock upon ray office door. ,
Muttering something not at all compliment
ary to evening callers, 1 arose and answered
the unwelcome summons.
A slight, boyish figure, enveloped in a large
black cioak which covered him froui head to
foot, stood leaning wearily against the railing
of the steps.
"Is this Dr. Merriam ?"
The voice was singularly clear and sweet,
and, with a little thrill of curiosity, I stepped
back aud bade the Inti tuler enter.
I turned on the gas, which instantly tilled
the room with a sudden Hood of light, and
wheeliug ft great urui-chair before the lire, re
quested hi or to be seared.
But, to ray surprise, with a most decided
qesture, he declined, and turning to the street
door, locked It, and put the key in his pocket.
Tue uiovenu-nt Ulled me with indignation,
and I was about demaudihg an explanation,
when he advanced to where I was standing,
and throwing aside the henry cloak, extended
his lett hand which was mutilated horribly,
and bleeding In a very profuse manner.
' Do not fear rae.*' he said rapidly, "I mere
ly locked the door lo prevent intrusion. I
called to have this wounded member properly
bandaged, and beg that you will be as expedi
tious as possible.
"Fear him!" I smiled at the absurd idea, for
the fellow was not as large a: an ordinarily
. sized girl, and I would as soon have thought of
being "taken captive by a mosquito as ot* being
worsted in a hand-to-hand encounter with
Ltitt I made no reply, and procuring band
ages aud splinters went to work.
It was a very ugly wound ridded. The whole
hand looked as il it had been chawed and bit
ten, while the forefinger was entirely gone.
"How In the deuce," l ejaculated, "did you
manage to get hurt so ?"
He shrugged his shoulders impatiently.
Le diable !" he burst one passionately. "Do
up the thing. I'll pay a good price."
Then, as if ashamed ot his rudeness, he con
tinued more civily.
' However, as you 'medicine men' know eve
rything. I shall have lo tell you that I happen
ed to have a lllttle'difficulty,1 and got I he
worst of it."
1 perceived that he did not like to converse
about it, so I did not reter lo it. again.
He wore his broud-rlmmed hat slouched
down over his eyes, and I could only see t he
lower part of his lace, which was round, dim
pled and womanish in the extreme.
But he bore pain wit h a fortitude I never
saw equalled. Not a groan escaped him,
though his face was covered with perspiration,
and his Hps were white with ngony, but, when
the operation was over, with an at tempt at
bravado, he asked how long ere the hand
would be well again, and when I told him it
would be useless forever, he said nothing, but.
laying a roll of bills on the table, unlocked
the door, and In another instant I was alone.
I picked up the roll of bills, and, counting
them, was surprised to Ind myself the happy
possessor of $500 more than T was ere my one
night's work, axd, congratulating myself on
the pleasant fact, g<>: Into ray b?d lu a most
exultant frame of mind; Tor the little village
wherein I hung out my shingle boasted two
disciples of the healing art besides myself,
and I am free to confess that patients and
fllthy lucre were provokingly scarce.
... The next morning I was shocked to hear the
' astounding story that old John Bradley, of tho
neighboring village, had been tound dead In
bed, his throat, cut lrom ear to ear.
Old Bradley was a raiser, and lived alone,
with the exception ot a girl, now grown to
young ladyhood, whom, in a rare Instance of
charity, he had rescued lrom the goiters of
Boston, and adopted as his own. She would lie
with more ease than any one else com! tell
the truth. She could, aud did, steal with a
laclllty almost marvellous. White her stock of
"Billingsgate" was ot the choicest description,
and beggared anything of tho kind Hie villa
gers had ever seen.
She was singularly handsome, but her tem
per was as high-strung as her race was pretty;
and ten years pre .'lou3, when old John had1
been forced to send her to the Reform School,
her rage and auger knew no bounds. But all
that was past After her return. Bradley had
purchased an elegant outfit for his vicious
ward, and sent her to a distant city to a fash
ionable ladies' school, trora which she hud
Just returned an accomplished lady of nine
About 9 o'clock an inquest was held, aud
mysell and colleagues met at Bradley's.
A more hideous-looklug corpse 1 never be
held than the one stretched out before me.
The lace was thin aud shrunken, ami long,
livid Beratenes ran horizontally over the
cheeks, while, extending from ear to ear, ran
a deep, jagged gash, iront' which the blood had
oozed, and luv lu a congealed mass arouud
Bending c <f ihlin, and endeavoring to close
his mouifi, f perceived a white substance be
tween his teeth.
To draw It torth was tho work- of an Instant.
A cold chill crept over me as I laid it. down.
It was a white, slender linger?the linger of a j
delicate left hand.
John Bradley had been murdered;and liken I
flash of lightning -it burst upon rae that his j
murder was none other than mv visitor of the
previous evening, i explained t he case, as soon
as I could command myself, to mv colleagues,
and claimed the ghastly clue to the perpetra
tion of the tejr&ie crime.
We determined t,0 My nothing concerning
our discovery for a lime, but calling in the
services ot the secret poiice, we flattered our
selves that ere long we would be enabled to
deliver tho assassin into the hands of (he au
Bradley's adopted daughter, immediately
upon being apprised ot the death of her guar
dian, had gsne into a violent lit of hysterics,
and bolting her cli iinber door, positively re
fused companionship of any kind. I saw* her
at tho funeral two day - later.
She was very pale, aud her appearance in
dicated lhat she bad Indulged lu a most ex
haustive lit of weeping. I had never seen her
before, to my knowledge; still [here sgenied a
strangely familiar air about her lor which I
could not accouul. She was dressed iu deep
mourning, wore a Russian sable collarette,
and earned a muff of the same; Indeed, her
whole appearance was elegant in the extreme.
The young lady wept soltly from the depths of
a costly aud exquisite mouchoir, and I noticed
Ihe hand tbat held tile elegant trifle was while
and small, displaying Jo good advantage a
valuable diamond i ing. I glanced at tile girl
curiously, aud thought of all the stories 1 hod
heart.' coucerniug her queer, uncanny child
hood; and as ihe prosy jninister descanted
upon the merits of the deceased, I speculated
upou the future course of the heiress ol all old
Bradley's hoarded thousands.
The will was short and concise, beginning
with the usual formula aud endiug with the
"Do will and bequeath to my adopted daughter,
Jaquellue Bosenl Bradley, the sum ot $lo.?uo hi
the First NUtloual Bank, together wiih all real
esia.e and personal property belonging tome.
Wherewith, In token oi the same, I alllx my
name hereunto. Jonx Bkaulev."
Miss Bradley did not seem to feel elated over
her good fortune, but took it quite as a matter
of course. Her quiet behavior elicited a great
deal of speculative gossip from the villagers
but as she was very reticent, village curiosity
was unsatisfied. There was something myste
rious about the g!rl. I felt that the first lime
I saw her. But after the first few weeks ihe
excitement gradually calmed down, and In the
busy search for additional knowledge of the
mysterious assassin, I dismissed her lrom my
But time passed, and with all our efforts we
were still as much in the dark as when we
first began. A year went round, but long be
fore Miss Bradley had sold the estate and gone,
none knew where, I still kept up the search;
but it was useless, and. tired ouf. I almost con
cluded to give it up entirely, when, one eve
ning. I received a letter from my nephew, Tom
ifantord. containing a pressing invitation to
come to the Holly Lodge and make him a long
visit. Our own "little village was unusually
dull, and everybody persisted in pertaining a
vulgar degree" ot good health, positively dis
couraging to a poverty-stricken physician in a
country town. So, packing a change of linen
in my valise, I started.
Tom met me at the depot, und giving me a
most cordial welcome, conducted me to his
Now Tom, at that time, was a single man,
but I soon perceived by the drift of his con
versation that ho was no longer heart-whole,
and that as soon as his inamorata gave him a
favorable reply, he would metamorphose him
self Into a benedict.
It was nothing but. Helen from morning till
night, and I gladly availed myself of the op
portunity to call and see his paragon of per
I recognized her instantly as none other
than the Miss Bradley, ol Bradleyford.
In commenting on her appearance that eve

carried her hand bandaged so closely.
He believed she hau an eruption or some
thing of the sort-; did not exactly know; she
had always had it so since ho had first known
1 felt, a sudden suspicion, but could not ac
count for It, but when morning came had al
most forgotten the matter.
Titr?e weeks passed pleasantlyaway, and it
being the anniversary of my birthday, Tom
vowed there should be a fete in honor of it.
eo the young people of the neighborhood
were invited, and everything went off as
smoothly as wedding bells, until it was nearly
time for the party to break up, when there
came up a terrible storm.
It continued to rain with a steady drip, drip,
and drizzle, which effectually precluded the
idea of returning home, and our guests were
obliged to remain another night with us.
I noticed that Miss Bradley grew restless and
uneasy beneath my gaze, und when my eyes
rested upon her bandaged hand, she grew pale
to the lips. She early excused herseil on the
second evening and went to her room. It so
happened that my apartment was on the same
lloor. und. in liicr, was separated from hers
only by a thin partition, and as soon as de
cency would permit, I slipped up the Blairs,
and opening the door softly entered my own

time I beheld free from its swathing*.
Ilwas4rlthered, and minus a finger. Instant
ly that Idack atuumnal midnight, and my sin
gular vision, rose before my mental vision, and
with a sickening sense ol horror 1 sat down ou
the edge of ihe bed to think.
My ulght-Iamu burned low, and ihe great
clock in the hall chimed the hour of twelve,
ere I foil into a dose. I slept but lightly. Vis
ions of the murdered man danced bet?re my
eyes; awake, aud grinning faces haunted my
I heard the door turn slowly on Its hinges,
and a light, firm step sounded softly on the
thick pile of the carpet. My heart gave a great
bound. I looked through half-closed lids to
ward the door and beheld Miss Bradley, in a
loose white wrapper, advancing to mv bedside.
Her ioug dark hair, unbound, floated over lier
"shoulders in waves of Jet, and her eyes were
wide open, strangely fixed and glaring.
She was muttering to herself. It seemed as
though I could not move, but seemed as if
held In a vice.
As she stopped by my bed I caught the
bright gleam ot a dagger shining in the glare
ol the night lamp.
Mis3 Bradley looked at me long and ear
"Yes, I killed him," she muttered, "I killed
him; he fought, though, like a Hon. I wanted
money. I shull kill this one, because I am uot
safe while he lives."
She held up her knife, which looked bright
and sharp in the lamplight.
"Not three minutes to live," 6hc continued
hoarsely. "May tho Lord have mercy on
She swung the knife slowly in a circle over
her head; then, with a quick bound, I sprang
up, and in another Instant, pinioned lier to the
lloor, calling loudly for help.
She struggled desperately, but he r efforts
availed her notaing.

But long before her trial was to have been,
