Tl Mrltir of a H oaJ om CWi o
coeraiOHT, ia4, av thb .uthor.
Late in tho afternoon I tramped into
Morshminstcr. It vros by no means my
first visit to that sleepy provincial town.
Under thp shadow of tho catbedrnl tower
dwelt relatives with whom I bad aforetime
'spent school and collego holidays.
Their bouso was tho goal of my
nnd a week's rest was to recoup
mo for tho toils of tho walking tour.
Tho tragio occurrence at tho Fen inn
nltcred all my plans. With an assassin to
bo tracked thoro was no time- for com
fortablo idleness. Francis Briarfleld had
been my friend, and I owed it to his
memory to avengo his doath. It was no
easy task I had set myself. I recognized
that from tho first.
In place, therefore, of seeking tho cer
tor of tbo town and my maiden aunt's I
turned off nt tho outskirts and mado
for Bellin HalL According to tho story-.
of Francis, bis brother was btaying
with tho Bell ins, and it was necessary
that I should seo him at onco about tho
matter. My acquaintance with Mrs. Bel'
lin and her daughter was confined to
casual conversation nt crowded nt
homes" during tho season. I had hardly
the right to thrust myself on them uninvited,
but my business brooked no
do! ay. Tho sooner Felix knew tho truth
tbo better it would bo for him. If ho
""were guilty, I could punish him for his
criino by denouncing him nt onco to tho
authorities; if innocent, ho no
timo in bunting down tlioso who bad
slain bis brother. Besides I wished to
put Olivia on her guard against tho
man masquerading as Francis
That I intended to do in any case,
whether ho was innocent or guilty.
Bollin Hall was a grotesquo specimen
of architecture, built by Jeremiah Bellin,
who hod made his money out of
blaoking. It was uncommonly liko n
factory, but perhaps tho deceased
liked something to remind him of
tho origin of his fortuuo and keep him
from thinking his ancestors canto over
with William tho Conqueror. Ho mar-lied
the daughter of n baronet nnd then
took his departure to tho next world,
leaving his widow well provided for
and his daughter an heiress in her own
Mrs. Bellin was a pretty woman,
with no brains and a giggling laugh.
Her daughter bad tho beauty of her
mother and tho brains of her father, so
sho was altogether n charming girL
How sho could tolerate, her silly dolly
of a mother I could novcr understand.
Perhaps S3 years of constant forbearanco
had inured her to tbo triaL
On arriving at tho front door I learned
that Mr. Briarfleld was within and scut
up my card, requeuing a privato inter'
'view. For tho present I did not wish to
seo Olivia, as it was my intention to
worn Folix that I was cognizant of his
trickery. My theory Ms proved correct
by tho following dialogue:
Myself Is Mr. Briarfleld within?
Footman Yes, sir. Mr. Francis
Briarfleld has just returned from town.
After which question and answer I
was shown into a room. Obsorvo that I
had said "Mr. Briorflold," and th footman
answered "Mr. Francis Briarfleld. "
Now, as I woll knew that tho man
bearing that uamo was lying dead at the
Fen inn, it was conolusivo proof that
Felix, to gain tiro hand of Olivia, was
masquerading as his brother. I had just
rtrguod this out to my complete satisfaction
when Felix mado his appearance.
Tho resomblanco between tho brothors
was extraordinary. I had some difficulty
in persuading myself that tho man
boforo mo was not ho vi horn I had seen
dead that morninc, tho samo palo face,
dark hair and jaunty mustache, tho
samo gestures, tho samo gravity of
and actually tho samo tones in
tbo voice. Thcro was not tho slightest
difference between Felix nnd Francis.
The one duplicated tho other. I no longer
wondered that Olivia was deceived.
Dospito my acquaintance with tho
brothers, I should have boon trickod
myself. As it was, I stared open mouthed
at the young man.
, "This is a pleasant surprise, Den-ham,"
bo said, looking anxiously at
ma "I did not know you were in this
part of I ho world."
"Nor was I until yesterday. I nni on
a walking tour and last night slept at
tho Fen inn."
"Tho Fen inu," ho repeated, with n
light start. "What took you to that
out of tho way place?"
"I camn by tho marshes, and as I
was belated had to tako tho shelter that
, offered. "
" "But, man alive?' said Felix,
lug his eyebrows, "tho inn is cniptyl"
Tliis timo it wan my turn to bo us-
toutahod. ' If Felix thought the inu was
empty, why did ho uppolut it as a

mo to conduct I ho conversation
with tho utmost dexterity.
"It was not onipty last night nt nil
events," I retorted, keeping my eyes
fixed on his face.
"Indocdl Aro gypsies encamped
thcro?" ho nald coolly.
"Woll, not exactly," 1 answered,
emulating his calm. "It was in charge
of a man called Strcnt and bis daughter."
"This is uown to me, I was nlwnm
under tho impression that tho Feu inn
was qulto (U sorted."
"You havo not been near it lately?"
"No. Nobody goes near it They say
"Pshaw," I answered angrily, "an
old wifo's talol And yet," I added after
n moment's thought, "it may well be
haunted aftcrwhat took place thcro last

"I am talking of Francis."
"Francis," ho repeated, with rt disagreeable
smile, "Francis? Well, Den-ham.

"I think you aro making n mistake,
Briarfleld, " said I coldly, ' ' Your broth?

"I qnito bollovo that. But you ore
"Oh," said Briarflold, bursting into
a harsh laugh, "I seo you aro making
tho inevitable mlstako of mixing mo up
with my brother. It is pardonable under
tho circumstances; otherwise I
might rcsout your plain speaking. "
Tho assurance of tho man was so
that I wondered if he knew that
his secret was safo by tho death of his
brother. Such knowledgo would account
for his complacency. Yet it was quite
impossible that he could know of tbo
death, as. ho certainly had not been to
tho inn. I knew that from my own
"If you ore Francis,'" said i slowly,
"you aro engaged to Miss Bellin. "
"I nm," ho answered haughtily,
"but by what right yon"
"One moment, Mr. Briarfleld. Miss
Bellin gavo her lover Francis a pearl
ring. I do not see it oil your finger. "
Ho glanced down at his baud and
"I lost it," ho muttered "I lost it
some timo ago."
"That is not truol"
"Do you dare to"
"I dare anything in connection with
what I know to bo a fraud. You nro

said savagely. "Don't I know my own
"If you aro the man you assert yourself
to be, whero is tlto pearl ring?"
"I lost it"
"You did not You never bad it I
saw it on tho finger of Francis no later
than last night"
"I think yon ore mad, Dcnhnml"
said Felix, white with passion, "or olso

"That untrnth will not serve," 1 said
coldly. "Felix is beforo mo, and Francis
is lying dead at tho Fen inn. "
"What! Francis dead?" ho cried unguardedly.
"Ah, you admit it is Francis?"
"No, I don't," ho retorted quickly.
"I only your words. What do
you mean by saying such a thing?"
For answer I rose from my beat and
mado for tho door. Tho farce wearied
"Whero aro you going, Denham?" ho
oskod, following mo up.
"For tho iwlice, " I answered, facing
him. "Yes, I nm determined to find
out tho mystery of Franci.i Briarfleld's
death. You, his brother, decline to help
mo, so I shall place tho matter in the
hands of tho authorities."
"Upon my soul, Denham," said F0'
lix, detaining me, "you nro cither mad
or drum:. I ueclnro most solemnly that
lam Francis Briarfleld.. From this story
of yours I should think it wns my broth

ho is in Paris?"
"A flno story, but it does not impose
on mo," l nnsweieu scofflngly. "Listen
to mo, Briarfleld. Your brother Francis
went ont to South America somo six
months ago. Befort) ho went ho was en
gaged to Miss Bellin Tho mother

knowledge to suppress tho letters sent
to Miss Bellin through yon by Francis
and represent yourself to Olivia as

tho morp easily carry out tho game. "
"This is mere rating."
"It is the truth, and you know it

"I nm going to do so now. "

Miss Stonbangh is aprotty girl of
about 20 years and is to-day the true
picture of tho ideal, hcaltby,robust and
jovial American girl. She was not always
so, as is proven by tbo accompanying
statement made by ber.
"Fonr years ago," sho said, "I was a
sufferer in all that tbo term implies,
and novcr thought of being as healthy
as I am to day. Why, at that timo, I
was snob a scrawny, puny little midget,
pale and emaciated by an ailment peculiar
to us women, that my fathor and
mother gave me up to die. Tbo local
practitioner, whose name was Dr,
Glassford, (I was at that time living at
Scotland, Out.,) said it was only a
matter of days when I would 'bo laid
away in tbo churchyard. I was so in
formed, and as I was bucIi a sufferer I
cared nothing whatever wbotber I lived
or died; in fact, think I would havo
preferred the latter.
"I conld not walk. I became so weak,
nnd regularly every night my father
used to carry me up stairs to my room.
I can distinctly remember my telling
bim that bo wouldn't have to carry me
about mnch longer, and how he said,
while tbo tears glistened in bis eyes,
that he would be willing to do it always,
if be could only have me with him.
"it was evidently foreordained that I
should not die at tbat particular time,
as a miracnlons transformation in my
condition was the talk of tho neighborhood.
"I read, or was told by somebody, of
the wonderful cures tbat were being
wrought by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People, and my father went'to
Brundford, whero be purchased a conplo
of boxes from W. Wallace. I commenced
taking them, and I thought for a
time that they did me no good, as they
made me sick at first, but very shortly
I noticed n great change. Tbey began
to act on my "trouble, and in tbo short
space of six weeks I was ablo to walk.
I continued taking tbe pills, and in six
months I was in tbo condition you see
mo now. I fully believe tbat tbey
alone fayed me from the crave, and
yon will always find myself nnd balanco

D. A. Delakkv, Notary Public,
Drnggiets say that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills havo an enormous sale, and
that from all quarters come in glowing
reportsof tho excellent results following
their use. An analysis proves that they
contain in a condensed form all tbe
elements necessary to give new lifo and
richness to tbe blood and restore shattered
nerves. Tbey are an unfailing
speoifio for such diseases as locomotor
ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus'
danee, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism,
nervous headache, tbo after effects of
la grippe, palpitation of tbo heart, pale
and sallow complexions, tbat tired feeling
resulting from nervous prostration;
all diseases resulting from vitiated humors
in tho blood, such as scrofula,
chronic erysipelas, etc. Tbey are also
a specific for troubles peculiar to females,
such as snppressions, irregularities,
and all forms of weakness. In
men tbey effect a radical euro in all
cases arising from mental worry, overwork,
or excesses of whatever nature.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were first
oomponnded as a prescription, and
used as such in general practice by an
eminent physician. They aro now
manufactured by tho Dr. Williams
Mcdicino Company, Sobenectady, N.
Y and Brockville, Ontario, and are
sold in boxes (never in loose form by
tbo dozen or hundred, and tbe publio
aro cautioned against nnmerons imita
tions sold in this shape) at CO conts a
box, or six boxes for $2.50, and may bo
had of all druggists, or direct by mail
from Dr. Williams' Mcdicino Com
pany from either address.

A Grave Beneath the Blasted Tree.
The gravos of Walker Blaino and bis
sister, Mrs. Alice Stanwood Coppinger,
in Oak Hill cemetery, aro marked by
plain monuments, tbo 'first a round-topped
slab of marble, without a line of
ornamentation except the inscription.
This reads: "Walker Blaine, born in
Augusta, Me., May 18, 185S. Died in
Washington, January 13, 1890. "Tho
grave of Mrs. Coppinger is marked by
a Celtio cross about four feet high,
inscribed as follows: "Alice Stanwood,

of Col. J. J. Coppinger, U. S. A, Born

by her sorrowing husband."
Over tho gravo of James G. Blaine
there is neither monument nor inscription,
save a small footstone with tbo
initials: "J. O. B." At the bead of
tbo gravo stands a blasted tree, which

Upon the death of his favorite' son,
Walker Blaine, tbe then Secretary of
State selected a lot in Oak Hill cemetery,
one down tbo hill from the little
red sandstone chapel and overlooking
the waters of Rock creek. Here Walker
Blaine was bnricd, and when, not
long afterward,.Mr. Blaine's daughter,
Mrs. Coppinger, died, he bought tbe
adjoining lot, whero she was intorred.
On this lot there stood an old hickory
tree. It had been struck by lightning
some years before, and bad died at tbo
top, bat it was trimmed and revived,
and now bids fair to reach as green an
old ago as any other tree in the cemetery.
Mr. Blaino requested when he
bought tbe second lot that this tree
shonld never bo destroyed, and that
on his death he should be buried be
