"TfiUTp SX&AJiGJEK Xii AN FICTION.''
iif ?Tn^ffm^isco, on' t???f North "side"
of Folsom airest, overlooking Mission
liny, htaiiua a palatial r?sidence.
Tho interior ' of this bonse is even
moro beautiful than ita exterior, every
apartment being in its way a gem of
magnificence and refinement.
The library, cspeoially, realizes tho
most porfeot ideal of an elegant and cul?
And yet, at the moment we look in
upon him-oue August afternoon, as he
occupied his library-tho proprietor oT
all this wealth appeared, of all men, the
most miserable. Rj ?
rle was Mr. Morton Preblo, for many
years a loading banker of San Francisco.
It was in vain that the broad bay-win?
dow at the South cud of tho room bad
been oponed, giving ingress to the sun?
shine and the fragrance of rare flowers
iu vain that tho valla wera lined with
richly carved book-cases and paintings
in vuiu that soft couches and luxuriona
chairs had been gathered around him.
Ho was wretched.
He lay on a sofa, in the depths of the
great bay-window, the wreck of a once
powerful man. His figure was thin and
gaunt; his face white as marble; his eyes
having an expression of "woful apprehen?
sion, of harrowing anxiety, of droadfnl
It was evident at a glauco that no
merely physical ail mou t had made him
what he was.
By what withering" secret, by what de?
stroying affliction, had ho been thus ago?
nized? thus haunted? thus hunted? ho,
so noble and goodl he, BO wealthy and
As he moved restlessly upon his luxu?
rious cushions the pretty clock ou the
m au tel-piece struck five, every stroke
soeming to fall liko a hammer upon the
heart of tho nervous invalid. He aroused
himself, struggling feebly to a aittiug
"Oh, trill this-fatal day novor, never
pass?" ho murmured; "nor bring us re?
lief?" ' -'
Noticing With k nervous start that he
was albnet he touched a bell upon a ta?
ble before him, and called:
"Helen, Helen! where are yon?"
Before the cohoes of his voice had
died out a step was heard, and his wife
entered bia presani* J.
"Ju left you only for a moment, Mor?
ton," she said, advancing to the banker's
uide. "You were dozing, I think. I
wished to send for the doctor!"
She was a beautiful woman, of some
six and thirty years, graceful, with broad
white brows, and loving eyes, in which
the brightness and sweetness of a sun?
shiny nature ware still perceptible, un?
der a grief and anxiety no less poignant
than that evinced by her husband.
"Tho doctorl" ho echoed, half-re?
"Yes, dear," she said, in a calm and
cheerful voice, as abe drew a chair to the
side of the sola, and sat down, stroking
tho corrugated forehead of the invalid
with a magnetic touoh. "He will be hero
immediately. Your last nervous crisis
alarmed mo. You may become seriously
Mr. Preble bestowed au affectionate
look upon his wife, but said despond?
"Tho doctor! ne cannot - 'minister to
n mind diseased!' Oh, if theso long
hours would only pass! . If I only knew
what the day has yet in storo for us!"
"Look up, Morton!" enjoined Mrs.
Preble, willi a reverently trustful glance
upward through tho open window at the
blue sky, and as ii looking beyond the
nzuro clouds therein. "Jjet us appeal
from the injustice and wickedness of
earth to the goodness and mercy of
Tho banker gave a low, sobbing sigh.
"I cannot" look up, Helen," ho uuswer
cd, with a passionate tremor in his voice
"only down, down afc the grave that is
opening before me!"
Mrs. Preblo continued to stroke his
forohead softly, while sho. lifted her palo
taco lo tho sun-light streaming into the
"Lookup, Morton-always look up!"
slio agaiu enjoined upon the invalid.
"During all theso fourteen yearo of ago?
ny, I havo not once doubte^p?Bi?her the
goodness ot the jnatioe of Heaven.
'Blessed are they tirat-mourn; for they
shall bo conifu;ud,.V rpelieve that we
shall yet rejoice mo\ro ]?ct?nly than we
have mourned, aird that wo shall como to
a glorious day of joy beyond all this loug
night of sorrow!" r *?
The face of the invalid lighted pk-with
an answering glpw, and beslKmmurc<l :
"OloriouB faith! My wWEy'nu aro in?
deed a blessed comforter! afl^ups. aft?r
all, you are right!" \ _?ft \
A knock resounded on a fFlo door at
this juncture, and the next moment Dr.
Hutton, tho family physician, for whom
Mrs. Preblo had sent, entered the room.
Ho was au old man, portly in figure,
with white hair and beard, hut with a
frosh and ruddy complexion, a pair of
shrewd blue eyes, and with aa exuberant
boyishness of manner that tat well upon
him. He had a kind heart and a clear
heiuh Ho approached the sofa, after
greeting: tho husband arid wife, and lift?
ed the thin, restless hand of the invalid,
feoling his pulse.
"Quito a high fever," he said, after a
brief pause. "Worrying agajn, eh. Mr.
Preble? You are wearing1 yourself ont.
Medicine will do you no good so long as
your mind is in its present condition. I
must give you an opiate-"
"Not now, doctor," interposed the
banker. "I cannot-must not-sleep to?
day! I need to be broad awake now, for
I cannot tell at any moment what the
VTUolov, Perhaps even now- Ab, what
Hb started np wildly, add then, as the
sound thai bad disturbed bien waa not re?
peated, he oapk back againon, hut cash?
ions, pallid and panting. ' , . ,
Tho doctor looked at Mrs. PrSbie With
an anxious, qneaticuiog gla&ee.
"It is tho anniversary," she replied to
"his unspoken inquiry-"tho anniversary
of our loss."
"Ah, yes," said the doctor. "I re?
"Yes, it's auother of those terrible
days," cried the banker, in a hollow whis?
per. "Sit down, doctor, and I will tell
you the whole ?tory. 1 can think of no?
thing else to-day, and am almost wild
with apprehension and anxiety. Sit
Dr. Hutton drew up aohair and seated
himself, his faco exorcising the double
solicitude of a friend and physician.
"You kuew us fourteen year? ago, doc?
tor," said Mr. Preble. "We lived then
where wo do now, in a cottage on the aita
of this great mansion. There were but
tho throe of us-Heleu and I, and our
three-year old Jessie. And it was four?
teen years ago to-day that our little Jes?
sie was stolon from us."
"I remember it," said the doctor, soft?
ly. "Yet, might she not have been lost,
Mr. Preble? She went ont to play in the
garden, if I remember rightly, and was
never seen by you again. She might
havo strayed away-"
"So wo thought for a whole year, doc?
tor," interrupted the banker. "We never
dreamed that she had been stolen. We
searched everywhere for her, and offered
immense rewards for her recovery. I
employed detectives, but all to no pur?
pose. When our little Jessie ran down
the s te ps iuto that flower-garden," and
he poiuted to the front of the house,
"us if tho earth had opened and swal?
lowed her up, we never saw her again."
"Sho must have found the gate open,
and wandered out," suggested Dr. Hut?
ton. "She might have strolled down to
tho waters aud been drowned."
The banker Axed his buruing oyes
upon tho physician's face, aud whis?
"I said wc never saw the poor child
again. I did not say we had not heard
of her. She was lost on the 9th of Au?
gust, 1854. For a year we thought her
dead. But on tho anniversary of our
loss we received a written message con?
"A message!" cried Dr. Hutton, start?
"A mere scrawl-a single line-in a
baud evidently disguised," said the
banker. "Here it is."
He produced a dingy scrap of paper
from a drawer iu the table, and held it
up to the view of the physician, who
read as follows:
"AUGUST 9, 1855. Jessie, Ita, lia!
Dr. Hutton looked, with a puzzled air,
from the scrap of paper, which ho turned
over and over, to tho countenance of tho
"I eau make nothing of this," he de?
clared. "It ia merely a date, with the
namo of your lost daughter. It tells me
"Nor did it ns, at first," said Mr. Pre?
ble. "Then that name and that date,
with the demon laugh connecting them,
set us to thinking. A wholo year we
agonized over the dreadful problem, and
then we received another message, which
you shall see."
Ho thrust a second slip of paper, iden?
tical in shape and appearance with the
first, before the gaze of Dr. Hutton, who
road it aloud:
"AUGUST 9, 185f>. Your Jessie still
The physician started, as if electrified.
'' "Ah! this is something definite-some?
thing decisive," he muttered. "It con?
vinced you that your daughter was still
"Yes, doctor," said Mr. Preble, "and
every anniversary of that day has
brought us some message. The disap?
pearance of the child, myaterions as it
is, does not seem to me half so strange
as that tho villain who took her away
could contrive to communicate, with us
every year since, and always on a par?
ticular day-the anniversary of that on
which she was stolen-without our being
able to discover who he ia. And a still
greater wonder to mo is what can be his
motive. It seems incredible. If it was
stated in a novel many people wonld not
bolievc it. But 'truth is stranger than
Mrs. Preble drew from hor husband's
breast-pocket his note-book, opened it to
tho proper page, and presented it to the

glanced over the page, and then slowly

"The last of them is dated, I seo, a
year ago to-day !"
"Yes, yes," faltered the banker, "and
the time has come for another message.
This is the 9th of August, 18GSI"
"I see," said Dr. Hutton. "Aud this
is tho secret of your terrible excitemeut!
You are expecting to receive to-day
another of these strange messages!"
There was a brief silence. Mrs. Tre?
ble's hand fluttered in its task, and her
face grew very pule. The banker breath?
ed gaspingly. The physician regarded
them both in frieudly sympathy.
"Wo shall hear of ber again to-day,"
said Mr. Preble; "and what will the
Tho mother averted her face. Her
brave heart faltered as that question
echoed in her soul.
"The writer of these letters is uuques
tionably the abductor of your child!"
said Dr. Huttou. "Have you any suspi?
cion as to his identity?"
"Not the slightest," said Mr. Proble.
"We have puzzled over the problem for
many years, but wo cannot guess who he
"Think,"said tho doctor. "Have you
no enemy? Ido not moau people with
whom you aro not friendly-every stir?
ring man has plenty of these-but a
downright enemy! Is thero no man
whom you knew in the East who hated
you? No one agaiust whom you wero
oalled upon to testify no ono whom you
The banker shook his head. He had
asked himself ull these questions repeat?
"I havo no such enemy, doctor," he
answered with siucerity of voice and
"And Mrs. Preble?" suggested the
doctor, turning to her. "Have you nc
rejected suitor who might be revengeful
enough to desolate your home?"
"No," said the lady. "I was married
early. Morton was my first lover!"
"This is strange-very strange!" mut?
tered the doctor. "You are not conscious
of having an enemy iu the world, aud
yet you have an enemy-a hidden foe-i
fiend in humau form-who is working
out against you a fearful hatred! And
you havo not the slightest suspicion at
to whom he is?"
"Not the slightest, "declared the banker
"Not the slightest!" echoed Mrs. Pre
ble. "My husband had a step-brothei
who might have been capable of this in
f&my-but he is dead!"
"Tho hand-writing is not familiar?"
"No. It is mereiy a rudo scrawl, ai
you see," said tho banker. "It suggest
nothing-except that it is evidently dis
Again there was a profouud silence.
"Our child is .ie ven teen years old now,'
at length murmured Mrs. Prebio, be
voice trembling. "She is on the thresh
old of womanhood. No doubt, darin;
all these years, she has yearned for us
wherever she may bo, aa we have yearnei
"But where is she?" asked tho phy
sician-and now his voice was broken b;
his deep sympathy with tho agonize*
parents. "Where can sho be?"
"Heaven ouly knows," answered th
mother. "Perhaps iu San Prancisco
perhaps in some rude hut iu tho interior

of an unfaltering trust in God's mere;

at the message in question. "It is un

intends to demand money of you fe
bringing her back-or both."
"We shall soon know," said Mrs. Prc

What will it be?"

sofa, and his face grew even paler.
"Whatever it is, let it come!" he mui
mured. "Anything can be borne bettt

A servant soon entered, bearing
letter, which he extended to Mr. Prebh
"^jp&ijswrer is in the ball. "
With an eather gase, the banker giant

"It is from him/" he faltered.
He tore the envelope open. w
It contained a slip of paper, of wei

ojes again reverting to the message.
"Mo will be bore at six o'clock, and sod

Even as he spoke, the dook on the
mantel-pioce commenced striking the
appointed hour, and at that instant
heavy footsteps resounded in the hall,
approaching the library.
"It is he!" criod the doctor, also aris?
