no they trapped him, William Boyd being
the traitor. For my father had known
him in Holland and aided htm with money

or the lads or the Hill-Folk at the Univer

"This a man like William Boyd could
not foigle neither repay. But he hated
and bode his time. For, though I am but
young, I see that nothing breeds hato
und malice more readily than a helping
hand extended to a bad man.
"So hating my father in teoret, he met
him at the ulachau of St. John as he came

heumed that they wished to be friends,

So with that he cried, 'Let us bury
bygones and be friends.

hand, joyfully, 'let u go to the change

There was a longsilence.
"And this is all?" 1 asked. For the ac
cusation had been far greater than this.
"As I live and muse die, t hat is all. The
other things which they testify that he did
that night are but the blackness and foul
ness of their owu hearts."
"I will go speak with him," I said.
Mary U onion had bsen seated upon a wall
which jutu-d out over the water. She
leaped to her feet in auiutant, and caught
me by the wrist, looking with an eager
and intent look into my eyes.
"You must not -you shall not!" she cried.
My rather is not to be spoken to. He is
not himself. He has sworn that he will
answer no man, speak to no man, have
dealings with no man till the shame be
tsiauucned, aud his inuocency made to an
pear!" "But T will tiring him to hlnn-eir ." I said.
"I will ronton with him, and that mobt

the breat of my coat, "l tell you he will
not listen to a word."
"It is my duty," I answered.
"Whererore?" she cried, iharply. "You
are not his minister.''
"No," said I, "but I am more- I am both
his friend and yours."
IJoyou want'to reprove him?" she asked.
For that wherein he has given the un
righteous cause to speak reproachfully, I
will reprove him, ' I said- "1-or the rest, I
will aid, support and sucror him in all
that one man may do to another. By
confession or his rault, such as It has
been, he may yet keep the cause from
being spoken against."
"AW l'ou do not know my father -Uj
speak thus! Mary Gordon cried, clasping
her hands. "When he is in his fury ho
cares for neither man nor beast. He might
do you a hurt, even to the touohlngof your

clasped her hands and looked at me with

my heart became as wax.) Let him come

Almost I hau given way, but the though

'Hear me, Mary,' I said- "I must

THE DEMONIAC IN THE GARRET.
As all may understand, it was with
bowed head and a crushed heart that I
bent my steps toward tne gray tower, bit
ting bo feUuy among tne leatage of the
wood above the water.
Duty is doubtless noble and virtue its
own reward. But when theie is a lass in
the question why, it is somewhat harder
to go against her will tlian to counter all
the law and the prophets.
As I came witnm bij,ut of the tower ono
Hugh Halljdhj an old servant of the
Gordons, came running toward me.
"Minister, minuter," ha cried, "j-e
mauna come 'here. The maister has gotten
the possession by evil spirits. Ho swears
that if a minister come near him he will
brain him, and he has taken his bword and
pistols into the garret under the roof, and
he cries out constantlj'itauj' man btirhlm
he will surely die the death."
"But," I answered, "ho will not kill
me, who have had no hand in the mat
terme who have also been perse
cuted bjr the presbyterj- and by them de
posed." "Ah, laddie," said the old man, shaking
his palsied hand warninglyatme,"yellttle

power o' evil comes ower him he bides to

the laird, as he gied him aje me iiher

"Nevertheless, I will see him," said I;
"I have my message to deliver."
"Then I hope and trust ye hae made
your peace wl your maker, for je will
conio doon frae that laft a dead stiff
corp, and that ye'el see."
By the gate the lady of Earlstoun was
walking to and fro, wringing her hands,
and prajing aloud.
"Wrath, wrath, and dismay have fallen
on this house," she orled. "The five vials
are poured out. And there j-et remains
the sixth vial. O, Sanuj-, my mun, that
it should come to this! That he should
take the roofs like a pelican In the uesert

Sandy, the man o' mj' choice. A carnal
man was Sandy a' the days o' him a man
no to be ruled nor yet spoken to, but rather
like a lion to be withstood. But then a
little while and his spirit would come on
him like the spirit of a little child."
W e could hear as we walked and com
muned a growling somewhere far above,
like the growling of a caged wild beast.
"It Is the spirit of the demoniac that is
come to rend him," she said. "Hear to
him; he is hard at It, cursing the Presby
tery and a' ministers. He is sorest upon
those that he has liked best, as indeed the
possessed ever are. He says that he knows
not why he Is, restrained from braining
me, that have been his wire these many
sorrowful years. But thus far he hath been
kept from doing any great injury. Even

from his master, Boyd, summoning Alex

man had not caught the rope, and so gone
down more slowly to the bottom, he would
surely have been dashed to pieces."
"But how IoDg has he been thus'"

noise waxed and giew loudei. Then anon

So I mounted the turret stairs slowly,

and burbts, alternating with low intervals,
rilled with indistinct mutterings. Then
again a great volley would shako the
house., and.-in-the.afeerclap of silence I

And as I looked up the wooden ladder

I baw peeping through the angle of tho
square trap-door above me tho wlckod

rowed to a silt, glinted through a mist of

"Ye may shoot melt j'e will, Alexander,"
said I; "I am a man unarmed, und stand

that which I have to say.
"You are a great man, laird of Earls

been many peoples and heard many tongues.

proachfully. You, an elder of the Hill
Folk, have collogued ln the place or drink

laid a snare for j'our Teet, and, like a
simple fool, ye fell therein."
The deep voice interrupted me.
"Who are you that have entered into
mine house of larlstoun to reproach me?
Is Alexander Gordon a, bitfru to be harried
bj- baiins that were kicking in ewnddling
clouts and buttock hlppens when he was
at the head ot the Seven Thousand.' And

a man afraid of the face of xien!"
"Stand from under, I say!"
Nevertheless I did hot move, for there
grew a stubbornness within me as, there
had done when the Pxesbyterj set them
selves to vex me.
Then there befell what seemed to be
a mighty clap ot thunder. A blast of
windy heat spat in my face. Something
tore at Uie roots of my hair. Fire singed
my brow, and the reek of sulphur rose
stifling in my nostrils.
The demon-possessed had fired upon me.
For a moment I knew not whether I was
stiicken or no. For there grew a pain hot
as Hreat my head. But I stood wherel was
till, ln a little, the smoke began lazily to
clear through the trap door Into the garret.

curled out of the narrow windows, and
througbthe garretopenlng I hearda hurried
rush of feet beneatn me on the stairs, light
and quick, a woman's footsteps wnen she is
young. Mj' head span around and had itnot
been ror Mary Gordon, whose arm caught
and bteadied me, I should doubtless have
fallen from top to bottom.
"Qulntm, Qulntln," she cried, passion
ately, "are you hurt? O, mj' iatner has
slain him! Wherefore did I let him go?"
1 held by the wall and steadied myself
on her shoulder, scarcely knowing what I
Suddenly she cried aloud, a little fright
ened crj', and drawing a kerchiet from her
bosom she reac-hed up and wiped my brow,
down which red drops were trickling.
"You are hurtl You are sore hurt!" she
cried, "and it is all my Xaultl"
Then I said: "Nay, Mary, I am not hurt.
It was but a faintish turn that came and
"Oh, come away," she cried. "He will
surely slay you If you bide here, and
blood will be upon my hands!"
"Na Mary," 1 answered; "the demon
and not j'our father did this thing, and
such can do nothing without permission.
I will j-et meet and expel the devil in the
name ot the Lord!"
She put her netted fingers about myarm
to draw me away; nevertheless I with
"Alexander Gordon," I cried aloud, "tho
evil spirit has done its worst. He will now
depart. I am coming up the ladder."
I drew my arm free and mounted. A
my head rose through the trap-door, I own
that my heart quaked. But there had come
with the danger and the excitement a sort
of angry exaltation which carried me on
ward. Also I know within me that if. as
I Judged, God had other work for me to do
in Scotland, he would clothe me in' secret
armor of proof against all ussault.
Also the eyes of Mary Gordon were "Upon
me. I had passed my word to her, I could
not go buck.
As I looked about the garret between the
cobwebs, the strings of onions, and the
bunches of dried herbs, I could see Saudy
Gordon orouching at the far end all drawn
together, like a tailor sitting cross-legged
on his bench. He had his musket across his
knees, and his great sword was cocked
threateningly over his shoulder.
"What, Corbie, are ye there again?"cried

he pointed It threateningly at me.

"No, j'ou bhallnot, Qulntin Mac Clellan,"
he growfed- "tIClt comes to that I will

head this way and that like a beast tied
But in bis eyes there grew a far-away
look. The convulsive fingers loosened on
the sword-hilt. The blade rell unheeded to
the ground and lay beside the musket.
"0 Lord,' he gasped hardly above his
breath, "rrom all dangers of this night
keep this laddie. From powers of evil
guard him with thy good angels. The
Lord Christ be his yoke bearer. Deliver
him from sin and from himself" "When I
am under green kirkyard Bward, be thou
his father and his mother. O God.Fatherin
heaven, bless the lad!"
It was his mother's prayer.
And as the words came softer Alexander
Gordon fell on his knees, and moaned aloud
In the dim, smoky garret.
Then judging that my work was done,
I, too, kneeled, and for the space of an
hour or therebj- the wind of the summer
blew through the chamber, and the shad
ows crawled up the walls, and Alexander
Gordon moved not nor spoke.
Then I arose, took him by the hand, and
bade him follow me. We went down both
ot us together. And in the chamber below,
we found Mary, who had sat listening with
her head on her hand.
"Here is your father," I said; "take
him to his chamber, and when he Is readj'
bring him into the great room."
8o verj- obediently he went with her
as a little child might. t
Presently she brought him in again, dean
washed and with the brack look gone from
I bade her set him by the -window. She
looked at me to see if she should leave
us aloue. But I desired her to stay.
Then verj- gently I set tho right way
'Alexander," said I, "ye hav done that
which has worked great scandal. Ye
shall confess that publicly. Ye shall clear
yourself of that by a solemn oath taken
in the presence ot all men."
"That I cannot," said he, speaking for
the fiiRi Mmp "Th Presbyterv has i
fused me the privilege."
"There is a door open for you," I said,

"I will do it," he said, and put his
hand in mine.
So I lert him sitting there with his
daughter, and, with the knowledge that
my soul had power over his, I took my
way homeward, ,knowing that he would,
not fail me. ,
