i ' tho editor turned to his dcsl: and tried to
t bury hlmsolf In his business, llut notwlth-
t stunding tlio many exciting nnd ludicrous
oventr, his rilnd was net wholly won nway
& from tho mystery which scorned to bo real-

' front business. In his buslost moments,

M alwayn beforo him, pleading with tier largo
W Lluo eyes for rollcf.
Sur , i "WhoorQyoul Who arc you t" ho asked
SL ' himself again and again as tho vision roso

wf fiends socmed constantly aggravating him
fc with their Uoubtn and fears.

Vw himself. " If I havo to board tho lion In his

"So wo .were," roturncd Allen. "I bo-

p , wiping hor oyoj nnd blushing prof usoly bo-

V " Don'tyou know It h forbidden toplol"
" Vos, gcacrully It Is," ho nniworcd, with
" aslfth. "It is not every ono that I would
talk with on this subject, but U3 wo havo
occasionally exchanod confidonco on other
t subjects, wo might on this."
k "Oh, ofcourca" Sho managed to blush
B qulto''profu3oIy now, and coyly pinching at
m tho folds of her dross, gathorcd them down
M' Into narrow plaits.
H "I thought you vrould bo willing to toll mo
Vi all you know about tho matter."
Y "Oh, yos."
f J Sho sighed and gavo him a glacco from
) i tho cornor of hor uyos.
, "What Is tho namo of tho man who Uvos

' l any thing from them."
I "Did it novcr strlko you that thoro Is a
j V great deal of romance about this slugularly
l M mysterious old houso on tho hill?"
Wl ' "Yos, sir, It has," sho answered; "and I
j , bellovo that It would bo an excellent tbcm
for a story."
" "It might. What do you know of HI''
V f "Oh, not much."
"f a "How long havo you known that toll,

"You moon you havo no formal acquaint-

jr " How long unco you first saw him!"
H " Throo or four yoars ago."
hi "Had ho boon hero beforo that tlmot"
Li , "I havo heard that ho had. Ho has been
ju Uvlng at tho old stono houso on tho hill, at
) W, i short periods, for sovoral years."
e 4 '"I bollevo you said that a young lady
'$ was onco soon within thoso walls I"
'' f'Ves, sir; that was only a fow months
ago. I havo heard that she was seen again
'J " ' within thof last fow days. Boms ono discov
ered hor Bitting on a rustic scat beneath an
oia oaK, at u spring on too MlUsldo, botwece
tho vlllago and tho rock houso."
" No ono knows. Sho seems to bo nn ad
ditional mystery. It is generally supposed
that sho is tho daughter of tbo dark
whiskered master of tho stono houso."
"8ho has no roscmblanco toblmwhat
evor," Interposod Allen.
"You havo scon hor then."
" From tho description I havo had of hor,
sho has no rcscmblanco to him."
"No; yet parents nnd children aro some
times very dissimilar."
" Do you think sho has lived thoro longt"
"No, sir, sho can not havo been there
more than a fow months at most," an
swered Miss Hopkins. "Bho was nover
icon about tbo ptaco until recently."
"Havo you over heard of any chtldron
oclng seen or heard thcrol"
" Do you think thcro nro nnyt"
"Thcro nro nono. They would find It tm
posslblo to keep a child within thoso great
walls so qulot and sllont that it would not
bo seen or heard by somo ono," answered
"Docs that dark-whiskorod man mako
frequent trips away I"
"I supposo ho docs-It Is soldom, how
ever, that any ono ovor sees him go away or
coino back. For weeks at a tlmo bo Is not
scon, nnd then wo know ho Is away from
tho old houso on tho hill. Then all of a sud
den ho Is discovered walking about tho
olg houso, or even coming to tho vlllago,
but making tho acquaintance of no ono.
Bomo pcoplo think that ho If tho chief of a
banditti nnd goes away to his rendezvous
occisionally. Tbon thcro Is an old mothor
Tiffin wbo bcliovcs la witchcraft. Bho says
he Is a wizard, and that the strange sights

often nro tho result of his wild Incanta
tions and invocations of tho evil spirit. 1
have heard pcoplo say that thoy have heard
screams, shrieks nnd wild, demoniac laugh
ter from within that old house, which al
most froze tho blood in their veins."
Allen, having wltnoasod somo of those
atrango sights and heard somo of thoso
mysterious noises, did not think that sho
was oxagtroratlng them in tho least. But
his strong common senso told him that thcro
was nothing supernatural In all bo had seen
and hoard. It could all bo vory easily ac
counted for If proporly understood. Ho was
not so much Interested In tho bouso and tho
mysterious sights and sounds emanating
from It as In tho beautiful, mysterious

Ho could havo tnU murk moro of tho great

bad ho cheso to C.y so, but ho determined to
keep his coumcl lilnsclf.
Tbo conversation twrnn to drag, and as It
was growhn Uto, uud oho considered the
young editor frca from any further danger
at present, JIlsi Loethy Ilepldm left the
ofilco. Allen's rico w.t convulsed with
mental cntunh, and, striking his desk with
his fist, lio cald:
" This hn gam lit enough. Iloltllfoor
death, mbery or happiness, Heaven or hell,
I will probo that niyMory I will know all
beforo another t un risos. I will go to tho
tall stranger r.m demand an explanation,
avonlf hOBhoota'ina deod on his door-step.
Death Is protn-ablo to another night of mis-'
cry and doubt."
With this desperate rosolvo fresh on his
tips and ongravon In his heart ho seized
his lint, nnd loavin ; Toby to closo the ofilco,
left tho vtllara and hurried up tho old disused
road to tbo great stono houso on tho hill.

When Allen Gray reached tbo bouso on
tho hill, Instead of going around It as ho bad
done on fonnor occasions, ho walked direct
ly up to tho groat front gato and tried to
enter It; but It wai locked.
His first thought was to scalo tho wall,
which ho could havo dono by going to tho
rear, but seeing a servant In tho front yard
ho called to him.
"I want to seo your master," he said.
Tbo servant, who understood somo En
glish, shook his head, saying:
"Zo monsieur gono zo monsieur gone.
Monslour no come no corao bon jaur tnon
lour 1" And turning about, wont away.
Alton waited h bnj whilo at tho gato,
hoping ho would boo aimo ono clso to whom
bo could appoaL Darkness came ovor tho
sarth, and ho was at last forced to leave.
Slowly nnd sadly ho turned about and went

It was folly for him to altompt to drlvo her
anago from his mind; It bad been indelibly
stamped upon his heart and could never be
effaced. Bho had been no coquette seeking
conquests; she hud mado no advance nor
evinced any boldness, oven when visiting
him by night, to havo him take tho litttoboy
Bhe seemed to havo been reared In seclu
sion and taught to look upon every ono as
an enemy. It was only tbo direst necessity
that induced hor to trust htm on that occa
sion. "I will banish bor from my mind," ho re
solved, and for weeks mado heroic efforts to
do so. Ho was partially pldod by the potty
annoyances, which, like tho sllngof hornets,
tended to divert hi J mind from greater suf
fering. It was only a week after his unsuccessful
visit to tho groat stono houso that ho was
Interrupted ono morning by the abrupt en

' But remember your contract."
" What contract!"
Allen drow tho written agreement from
U10 )l;;cou-holo In bis desk and read It to
-ho angry Mr. Strong.
"But, then, I dldn'tknow ho was frivino to
run f ur tho Loglalctoor," persisted Strong.
"Now thct ho Is, I'm gwlno to beat bin, 1
don't kcer n cent what it costs no."
"If you run for uny other ofilco than
shcrlfT, ytU will forfolt to tin r,no thousand
dollars," sold Allen, vory earnestly.
"Your contract says so," and ho called
hts special attention to It.
"It's a trick, yo two bev sot up n trick on
me, that's all tbar Is 0' It."
"No, It'a mo yo sot up a Job on," said
Tom Blmmons, at this moment entering tho
ofilco somewhat abruptly. Mr. Strong
wboclod about and glared furiously at htm.
Allen, now quite thanklul that tbo two men
woro togcthor to vaut their sploen upon
jack other, stood with foldod arms and a
imllo on his fare to see what would bu tho
result of tho mooting.
"You hcahl" roared Btrony.
"You licrot" yelled Blmmons.
" Yes, on I'm na wino to beat you."
" Ti) ngoln to sc yo laid In tho shado cf

Then Strong swore that ho would teat
Blmmons, and vowed that ho would rather
be defeated any day than seo his enemy
"Gentlemen," said Allen, coolly, as ho
stood leaning against tils desk watchlne tho
angry men, "luy support has been prom
ised to both of you nnd you shall havo it.
It would bo a foather In our cap to havo both
sheriff and Representative from our vlllago.
I come hero In tho Interest of Turloy's
Folnt, and to that end I am working."
"D'yo think yo kin holo Turley's Tint, hv
scnain' mm 10 tno A,t-gi8iuioori" asked
" I do."
"Then sink Turloy's Pint."
" Would It help our town by lectin' him

"Then let 'cr bust"
"Gcntlcmon, so long as you entertain
such hostile feelings thoro will bo little
hopo for tho advancement of our town. If
you wish to effect any thing hero, and to
build up n thriving commercial center, you
must stop this combatting each other; put
your shoulders to tho wheel and go to work
in curnost for yourselves, for each other
and for Turloy's Point"
"Mo work for him I Novorl" roared Sim
mons. "Think I'm ngwlno to gin him a boost!
Not much." said Mr. Strong.
"But I shall hold each of you to a strict
obsorvanco of tho contracts you havo
signal. You shall each of j-ou run for tho
oOlccs to which you wcro selected in tho be
ginning, and I will support both."
"I'd rulhor bo beat a thousand times
than seo him olectcd," crio I Strong, as ho
loft tho ofilco In langungo equally as
forcible Blmmons gavo vent to his feelings,
as bo rotlrcd also.
"I think I begin to seo tho causo of somo
of tho trouble with Turloy's Point," said
Allen, as ho stood on tho front porch of tho
building gazing nftcr tho two receding
figures going in different directions. " Tho
town Is mado up of antagonistic rings and
cliques. Evory man hero would rather die
himself than seo Bono ono clso prosper.
Thoy havo taken prosperity by tho throat
and nro throttling her "
Tho sun beamed lazily down upon the
sloping roofs of the bouses scattered along
tho narrow valley rnd hillsides. Tho Btoro
bulldlncn wcrou.s-tlnruislicd by their square
fronts and painted signs. Tho usual crowd
of loafers wero gathered about tho stores
and saloons and wcro sitting on tho porches
or counters. The floors wcro well-worn nnd
rotting, whlli1 from tho damp warorooms at
tho rear ouo could Inhnle tho damp air Is
suing frn-n decay In t esetr.bloa. Thoro was
an air of uullness about tho littlo village,
as If it had been sllOcd by tho thick at

" No wnndtr that Turlov's Point Is on tho
downward road," said Allen. " With such
a class of citizen as tbeso thoro is littlo
or no bono of it over reviving."
Bummer passed, o.id as tho tlmo for the
election drow near tho heated contest among
candidates became tfreatcr all ovcrtho coun
try. Unkind words worg'iittercd by men
for tho Legislature nnd tho Democrat for
sheriff. Ho bcoamo tho mark for many
sharp retorts from othor nowspapors, nnd
wns accused of riding two horses at onco
horses that woro certainly going In differ
ent directions. As tho contest became moro
heated many camo to him to Induco him to
glvo up ono of tho candidates, bat tio stated
ho was pledged to both, nnd, having tho In
terests of Turlcy'. Point at heart, could not
boawirvcd from bis course.
His determination alono prevented Blm
mona nnd Strong from withdrawing to do
feat each other. Candidates from other parts
of tho country wero nomlnutctl, a Demo
crat from Bcntonsvillo was put in nomin
ation for Representative, and n Republican
from another vlllago put In nomination by
his party for sheriff, against Mr. Strong.
Tbo fight waxed hot No slander was too
vllo, lower unreasonable for Simmons to
tell upon his fellow townsman, Mr. Btrcng,
nor could Mr. Strong conjuro up In his
fcrttlo Imagination nny thing too base to
toll on bis fcllo'v townsman, Simmons.
Allen nppcaled In vain to their reason,
assuring them that they wero ruining oach
other, nud duHtiovIng Ml tbo bones of
Turloy's Point Each swore no wouia siu
Turlcy'a Point to boat his opponent .
It was useless for Allon to advocato the
Interests of tho Turloy's Point candidates
when they woro dolug all In their powor to
ruin each other. Evory good word lio spoko
for them was flatly dented. Tho local
hntrod which had bllghtod Turloy's Point

Drunken, burly rudlans woro parading

Half a dozen brawls ruged during tbo day,
and bluck oyes and bloody nosoa bocumo a
common Bight beforo evening.
Tho young editor, dUgustod with tho
pcoplo, tho town and the election, remained
in his ofilco all day. When returns camo In
from all tho townships ho was.not surprised
to loarn that both tho Turloy's" Point candi
dates woro badly defeated.
A Story with a Moral.
A Bath (Mo.) butohor has fallen a
victim to hlrasolf. Ho notlcod a noat
harness In a frlond's possession that
looked hotter than Ills own, whhh bo
had not oloanod stneo ho bought it, and
offered to swap and pay S5 boot. Tho
frlond accepted tho offor. Tho butohor
took no bottor caro of this barnoss than
of tho othor, and it soon showod ltsolf
a rather poor artiolo. Bomo tlmo nftor
