was, to take himself nil. After fl few mo.

walk around llie next block and return.
He did so, and on his return was surprised
to see the light out, as it was generally li ft
burning low. However, it was doubtless
the work ol a junior clerk who had had
some extra work to do. Lciirhton carried

seized it, and he could hear his own heart
licut as he recognised a weapon which he
had for some time (ever since a hold at
tempt at robbing the bank perpetrated in
broad daylight) kept in his tl.-.vrr. He
saw at a glance that it had lcen recently
discharged. What foul 'crime could have
been committed. He was not long in
doubt. Willi the weapon still in his hand
he looked around, and an indescribable
fear took possession of him. The door
into the private ofllwe occupied by the part
ners was open. He advanced toward it
nnd saw that a light was still burning in
the inner room so recently the scene of his
last interview with Mr. Tenniel. With
faltering steps be made his way to the
apartment, and pushing open tlio partly
open door a sight greeted him which
wrung from him a loud exclamation of
horror. On the floor, face downward, lav
the body of Mr. Tenniel. It was still
warm, but quite lifeless. He raised the
head of the murdered man and shuddered
' violently as the still warm blood, llou ing
from a small hole in the forehead, trickled
over his lingers and down his arm. IliiMi
ly withdrawing his hand, the face, Hiram
fell forward into the Utile pool of blood
which hail Mowed from the wound. Kd.
ward jAighton stood for some minutes
motionless and aghast like a man in a
ilieam. lie endeavored to control his scat

broke from his lips. What il he were to

short hours before he Fun I exchanged hot,
angry words with his employer, and had
uttered a threat, or what would now lie re
garded as a threat, against him, in speak
ing lo his hated rival, Hichard Courtney.
As these terrible reflections crowded on
his already excited and fevered brain, it
seemed I o him as though he shoull go
mad. The blood rushed violently to his
head, he was choking he tugged furiously
at his cravat he must have, air. He
turned to fly from the hateful spot, and as
he did so he reeled and fell. Kor the first
time in his life he had swooned away, and
lay side bv side with Mr. Tenniel's corpse.
How long he had lain there when he re.
turned to his senses he could not le!l.
Excited cries, the noise and din of a great
crowd fell upon his ears. Springing to
his feet, he rushed into the adjoining
room, from which a window opened on to
the street. The trumping of horses' feel,
the tire, bi lls, all Ihe noise ami tumult of a
crowd gathering around a tire warned him
of danger. Was Ihe bank on lire? A
plain e. through the window showed him
dial the building next door was in llames.
In a moment he was at the front door of
the building, but he could not open it. As
ho retraced his tfeps, a sudden thought
tilled him with a new hope. The phono

is to lie done? His thoughts travel fast,
and in a moment he has made up his
mind. He gropes his way back through
the familiar passage, then into another
room, and slill holding last to the phono,

eight or nine teet to Ihe ground, and ho
takes the leap. As he docs so he hears tho
massive doors into tliecounting-room burst

railing and he is dashed senseless on to tho
flagstones in the alley. The phonograph
falls from his relaxing grasp and rolls out
of sight into the guller beyond.
The alley on this side of the bank Is
completely deserted, and no one witnesses
Edward's accident, or is present to lend
him assistance. No one, did we say? Not
so. There see, furtively moving in the deep
shadow of the massivo building, is tho

It need scarcely he said that the great
fire, in which not only Tenniel & Court
ney's bank, but the building next to it in
which the tire was first discovered, and
several other prominent buildings had
been destroyed, together with tho cruel
murder of an old and universally respected
citizen like Luther Tenniel, furnished
Eldredge with a double nine days' wonder.
Indeed the proverbial nine days had
past aud gone some lime, and still these
twoevents continued to bo the town talk
of Eldredge. At Ihe time of which we
wrile, Eldredge had grown to be a large
city and an important business center; yet
it.s growth had of Into years been very
rapid, and it still retained a certain amount
of that provincialism characteristic of
these large cities of mushroom growth, of
which one of the peculiar features is the
familiarity of every one with every ono
else's business. In such a place, of
course, in the case of a well known promi.
nent man occupying the position of Mr.
Tenniel, who had grown with the city,
everybody knew or thought they knew all
his private affairs, and numerous were the
speeidat ions and rumors among the largo
family of newsmongers as to the particu
lars relating to the principals iu tlio tuel.
As Mr. Tenniel had feared, the condition
of the bank proved to be somewhat in
volved, hiuI Edward Lcightnn was by
many held to be more or less responsible
for this slate of all'airs. It appeared that
every one had prophesied something of
this kind some time previous. Jeighton,
while a young man of very good habits,
had ahv..ys lived up to the full limits of
his salary, which (was a liberal one; in
society mailers he had of lalo years taken
a somewhat prominent part, nnd every lit.
tin indication of extravagance in the past
was now wildly exaggerated, and the wise
heads shook gravely as they undertook to
put this and that together, and constructed
their own ingenious theory as to the courso
of events which had led up to tins sad and
wicked ending ot a voting man s appar
ency promising career. The newspapers
did their share in weaving the meshes ol
the net in which Ihe unfortunate young
man was so terribly entanghsl. Miiipii.
tons reporters interviewed, or sought to
interview every person nearly or remotely
connected with the chief actors in Ihe
tragedy. Even poor Helen, as well a her
mother, were for many days the victims of
these importunate newsgat hirers. Start,
ling head. lines prefaced the lour or
five columns a day which the daily
papers devoied, in the interests of a
curious public, to a narrative of all possible
details and numerous comments thereon,
concluding with sundry letters from self,
important personages on "the late terrible
tragedy," and other similar captions, in

cended themselves to write editorials on
the subject, in which they averred in a
highly moral lone, the duly of all journals
to refrain from any discussion prejudicial
or otherwise lo the accused (who had been
for many days previous referred to in their
columns as " the muiilen r ") until the law
should have taken its course, and the
proper tribunal decided on the merits o
the evidence in the case,
The ipiestion of the phonograph had of
course been taken up during these discus,
sions, but only as a rule, to be dismissed
very summarily us probably very unreliable,
no instance having yet been known of Ihe
phonograph being so applied with any
practical success. All this to the intense
disgust of Mr. Fellows, whose good opinion
of Mr. Courtney's uhilily was very much
Khaken when he' found that even that gentle,
man, notwithstanding some former enthu
siasm in the mailer, expressed himself
somewhat skeptically as to (he possible
value of litis missing witness.

As to poor Helen, ner agony of mind,
notwithstanding her firm conviction as to
her; lover's innocence, was indescribable.
Nor was its intensity iu any way diminished
when she found that she was to be sum
moned as a witness against him. She was
well aware that her account of their bust
secret meeting could only add to the weight
of evidence already so heavily bearing
down upon Mm. Il is true she had sought
to communicate with Eeighton, although
her mother and Mr. Fellows, nnd indeed
Mr, Courtney himself, had by their united
efforts, succeeded In dissuading her lrom
visiting him in Jail, and had finally seen
red from the last named gentleman, who by
championing l.elghlon'scause.had changed
lu r antipathy into warm regard, a proniiso
that hewoulil give the poor fellow the com.
fori of knowing that sho still loved him,
refusing for a moment to believe him
guilty of the crime with which ho was
charged, and the certainty that this assu
rance w ould help to assuage his grief was
no little comfort to her.
Mr. Courtney himself had so borne him

derfully increase his popularity. His re.
fu al lo concur in the general ante-trial
verdicts rendered against Lelghtou, not
withstanding it was understood the latter
claimed that his language regarding Mr.
Tenniel, addressed to Richard Courtney,
had reference to his conviction of Mr.
Courtney's mismanagement of the a flairs
of the bank, was regarded by all as evi.
deiiee of a most generous nature. As is
frequently tho case in tho event of the
death of such men as Mr. Tenniel, his pri
vale fortune, which was by all supposed to
be a large one, proved to be much less than
the estimate made of it by J)ame Rumor,
and from certain remarks inadvertently
made by Mr. Courtney, us well as by Mrs.
Tenniel's loud protestations of his extra
ordinary goodness, it was inferred that he
had not hesitated to make considerable
personal sacrifices in order that his Into
partner's widow nnd orphan might lie
maintained as nearly ns possible in the
style lo which they hail been accustomed
during Mr. Tenniel's lifetime, nnd on nli
hands it was regarded as most fortunate
that under the will he was called upon to
act as co-executor with Mrs. Tenniel, and
also share with her tho guardianship of
Helen. As a culiiiiiiaiion to his many
noble acts, be bad himself, "as a mere mat
ter of justice," he said, retained two emi
nent lawyers to defend Edward Leighton
at bis approaching trial, and, while ho i
judged it advisable for the sake of appear
unees, not to include his own son ns an
attorney lor the defense, he had expressed
to two or three persons bis gratification
that his son Richard had so well curbed
the natural ambition of a young and ablo
lawyer as to positively decline to aimenr. as
he had been requested to do in the most
flattering terms, in conjunction with the

Already the trial of I'd ward Leighton
for the murder of Luther Tenniel had
lasted some days, the greater portion of
winciiiiad neon taken up with tho usual
tedious preliminaries, the Bcnseless system
under which our juries are organized nd.
ding immeasurably to the delay. Sir.
Hughes, tho district attorney, hail made
his opening speech in a manner that
showed he was determined to add to bis
already wide reputation as a criminal law
yer; the more formal witnesses, the person
who bad found Leighton lying outside the
bank, the policeman who had arrested him,
the firemen who had rescued Mr. Tenniel's
remains from the burning building, the
medical experts who had made the autopsy,

in Ids determination to be where he had
no business to be, followed close on tho

audacity by discoveringlhe revolver which

posed victim; all of these had been duly
examined, as well as one or two persons
who had seen Lcighfon allcr his discharge
from the bank, and who testified as to tho
prisoner's excited demeanor, declaring, in
answer lo Mr. Hughes' persistent qiics
tioning, that be seemed to ihem nt that
lime like n man who was bound to do
soini thing desperate. (In this day, how
ever, Ihe public excitement attendant upon
Ihe trial was nt its height, for, prior to the
noon recess, the fact bad been elicited in
the course of sonic discussion between tho
opposing lawyers and the judge, that Mr.
Richard Courtney and Mrs. and Miss Ten.
niel were Ihe only remaining witnesses for
the prosecution, and also, that It was expect
ed that the testimony of theso three wit
nesses would occupy the remainder of tho
day after recess.
The court had adjourned until two p. m.,
but fifteen minutes prior to that hour, the
court-room was crowded. Many persons
present during the forenoon had not left
the court room at all, fearing lest they
might be unable to secure equally good
places lor the alternoon, and many others
who had not been present earlier were now
rapidly assembling, allraeled by the rumor
oi tlio impeniiiugexaminalion ot those Im
portant witnesses whoso connection with
tho caso was of so peculiarly interesting
and romantic a character. As tlio hour
approached, tho officials of the court took
their places, tho lawyers for the defense
wero seen for a few moments in earnest
conversation, nnd then chatting unconcern,
rdly with some of their confreres, includ.
Ing the district attorney, who had Just
made his appearance. About tho sanio
time a carriage drew up at the entrance of
tho court house, nnd Mrs. Tenniel and
Helen, both clad In deetwt mourning,
alighted, and, attended by Mr. Merlon
Courtney and his son Richard, entered tho
building. Jiy some observant onlookers, it
was remarked that tho younger gentleman
hastened to offer his arm to tho elder Judy,
leaving the young girl to tho attention of
his father; but they wero probably ttnawnro
of tho delicacy that prompted the action.
As they were about to enter tho building,
Richard' quick cyo had noticed a group
advancing from tho end of tho long corn,
dor leading from tho Jail-yard, and had
correctly surmised that their parly would
meet the prisoner oa his way to tlio court
room. Leighton had been unnblo to oh
lain bail, and although tho deputies wdio
escorted hlin had usually treated hm with

tractable prisoner, yet an Indiscreet remark

on this occasion lo handcuff him oa tils
way from the jail, which was so situated as
to compel them to tako their prisoner
through the crowd on their way to tho
courtroom. In truth, this precautionary
measure was prompted us much from a
vague fear that he might mako somo kind
of attempt at self-destruction, as from ap.
prehension that he would uttcinpt an
Helen Tenniel and her lover had never
nu t face to face since their meeting Just
before the murder was committed, though
sho had lately written to him several times.
She had made up her mind to be very
brave when she should seo him for tho
first time us a prisoner, feeling that her
own conviction of his Innocence and tho
necessity of doing nil in her power to help
to sustain poor Edward's courage would
help her; but sho had pictured tho meet
ing quite differently. She expected to seo
him as the papers described him, sitting in
the court room close by his lawyers, at
tended by two deputy-sheriffs, whoso man
ner toward him was moro that of friends
or acquaintances than custodlnns; liut thit
oh! this was too much. Her lover, her
Edward, ironed like a felon I It was moro
than she could bear. For a moment her
whole weight was sustained by her escort,
nnd her pale face beenmo almost nshen.
Then the blood of old Luther Tenniel and
his iron-willed forefathers rushed through
her veins, and with her face flushed, be
fore Mr. Courtney could stop her, she had
broken away from him nnd stood by Ed
ward's side, erect nnd defiant.
"How dare you manacle an innocent
man?" she asked, indignantly, addressing
For the first time since his arrest, Leigh
ton's countenance brightened, and a look
of gratified pride, mingled wilh tender
ness, lighted up bis handsome face as he
whispered, for her ear alone, " Helen, for
this I would willingly wear theso before
the whole world. You have turned these
manacles into jewels, my darling." And
then, assuring her that these gentlemen, re
ferring to the deputies, had shown him
every consideration, he walked on with a
lighter step and a haughtiness ol demeanor
that was undoubtedly due, in some meas.
lire, to the consciousness that Mrs. Tenniel
nnd the man whom he yet regarded us a
rival, were observing1 him.
As soon as this little episode was over,
the womanly nature reasserted itself, and
it was with tearful eyes nnd trembling
limbs that she again leaned on Mr. Court
ney's arm. Mrs. Tenniel endeavored to
ulter some words of disapproval, but a
glance at Helen's face and her own agita
tion rendered her incapable of utterance;
so they proceeded in silence to the judge's
room which he had placed at their dis
pnsal. At two, precisely, the judge stepficd
upon tbe bench, and, at the request of the
district attorney, the crier called Richard
Courtney. His evidence is already known
to the reader, and was briefly rendered 1
himself at tho request of the attorney.
further question was put and answered
regarding the prisoner's appearance and
manner at the time of their meeting, nnd
then one of the lawyers for the defense
rose to cross eMimine.
"Have you any rcison to suppose that
the agitation of tone and manner you de
scribe might have been occasioned, or, at
least, partly occasioned, by the feelings ol
the prisoner towards yourself?"
"Yes," was the brief reply; nnd to the
intense disappointment of the curious that
line of inquiry win pursued no further.
"One more qui siion," said the lawyer,
as Richard started to leave the w itness box.
" Had you ever any cause for thinking that
the relations between the prisoner and the
decensed were of an unfriendly character?"
. " Never until that day," was the reply.
"That will do," said the attorney, with
the keen judgment of a lawyer who knows

the iwtto voce remark to his assistant that
Ihe next witness' evidence would be suf.
fieient on that point, Mr. Hughes requested
the crier to call Mrs. Mary Tenniel.
A buzz of expectation filled the room as
Mrs. Tenniel, attended this time by her
late husband's partner, advanced to the
witness stand and was sworn.
A gentle pretty woman of almut forty
years of age, still beautiful, with large sad
iilue eyes, and a manner of tho deepest
reverence as she took the oath; shs im
itressed every one, not even excepting
Leighton himself, wilh tho conviction that
her evidence would be as strictly impartial
as though she had never known the parties
in the ease. The questions put to her
called forih answer-i which were given, in
every ca.se alter a moment's reflection, in
low but (dear nnd perfectly nudible tones,
and from which were elicited the fads
already known to our readers, of Leigh
ton's attachment lo her daughter, and of
her late husband's determination to oppose
the match; nl.-o ,f the hitter's intention,
ihrttireil to lur, lo have nn interview with
Leighton, in which he should offer him tho
alternative of complying wilh his wishes
or leaving his service forever.
The cro'-'-eMimlnation consisted of but a
single question in reference to her own
acquaintance wbh and opinion of the
prisoner's character prior to the death of
her husband. In answer to this question
Mrs. Tenniel spoke wilh such deep feeling
of hi r high opinion of Leighton 's worth
and moral character, that poor Edward
almost broke down, so nearly, indeed, that
evidences of his weakness were quite
apparent to the jury, on horn thev operat
ed greatly to his prejudice; for Mrs. Ten
niel's evidence, while challenging admira
tion for its guarded method, and her
unmistakable desire not to allow her feel,
ings against the prisoner to affect her
testimony, nevertheless made it in some
Inscrutable fashion, patent to every ono
that she was convinced of the prisoner's
guilt, nnd even her euloginm of bis former
good character, bare the involuntary im
press of her feeling of grief Hint, her good
opinion should have been so violently
shattered. Mrs. Tenniel's testimony giving,
as il had done, the plain unvarnished truth
regarding the relations of her daughter
and tho prisoner lo each other, had, if
possible, intensified tho Interest iittachlng
lo Helen's evidence, and Ihe little episode
of their meeting in the corridor, having
been bruited throughout tho assemblage
wilh all possible forms of exaggeration, it
was evidently expected by nil present that
something more than usually exciting
would occur while she was on the stand.
As the poor girl advanced to the witness,
box, and threw back her veil, muny people
stood up in their rude endeavors to get a
good look at her.
