found the horse tied as had been rcp

A dark figure, loading n child so complete
ly wrapped up that ho could not at llrst dis
tinguish its features, enma up to linn. Bend
ing low in his saddle, Allen lifted tho llttlo
boy to tho horse's bac and seated tho
child boforo him. Tho old negro woman,
thrusting into his baud n scaled note, mur
mured tho namo of Mml-mU-tlU UfimllU,
"Am 1 to give her this!" ho asked.
"Oul, monsieur!" she answered.
" Too bad, too bad!" said Allen, tnrustlng
tho noto Into his pockot, us his horso started
down tho road. " Every ono connected with
this confounded mystery is cither dumb or
speaks somo foreign langungo except
Bertha, who refuses torovcal any thing."
Tho child proved to bo a very patlont llttlo
fellow, and sat ntleuUy In front of Allen.
Fearing that somo of tho villagers might bo

after enntcring gaily down tho old turn
plko to tho bottom of tho hill, turned asldo
and rodo around Turloy's Point, cntoWug

no soon bocuiuo oortaln that the horse

of hoofs becamo louder every moment.
" I might outrun him," said Allen, " but
with this child to look attcr it would bo
best to play a gamo of bido and seek,"
On his loft was a nvrow, dark path load
ing down into tho woods, and ho turned his
horso Into It Hero ho waited until his pur
suer had passed along tho road, Tbo ring
of iron hoofs upon tbo stony road could bo

point opposito whero Allen had reined in his
horse. When tho sound of hoofs had diod
away in tho dlstanco, tho editor again re
turned to tho road and continued his Jour

laid his tired head against Allen's shoulder
and was soon buried in slumber.
"J.oor llttlo fellow," said Allon, gazing
Into that young faco, disfigured with caro
and weariness. "His being n part of that
terrible mystery has had a fearful effect on
Tho child had wonderful rcsemblanco to
Bertha. Tho fair, boautiful faco nnd gold
en curly hair was similar to hers. Undis
turbed by tho easy motion of tho horso, his
slumbors woro not disturbed.
Allen w is kept nwako by tho responsibil
ity that was on him. Sometimes ho bUtmcd
himself for having undortakon this Journoy '
at tho request of one whom ho really did
not Vnow. Was ever man engaged In a
moro madcap enterprise! n might ho, aft
er ull, that It was only a shrewd scheme to
make him a tool in an abduction.
" Heaven knows It is no wrong on my
part," sighed Allen. "But I know that I
am committing no wrong. Sho who bade
mo do this errand is too good, too puro to
mcdltato a wrong. I will not for a moment
doubt hor motives. By whomsoever sho
may bo surrounded, by whatover mystery
sho may bo engulfed, her goodness and tho
purity of her motives can not bo ques

a small stream. Boforo ho reached tho ap

Our hero was really In n poor condition

"Tills Is cortulnly n remarkably patient
