Valentine clasped her hands.
"Do not do not drive me to mich an

"Never! I tell you. Never! What is

"No; I Implore you to do what Is right,
what is kind!"
"You must have discovered something
which you consider important evidence

his daughter and speaking in a whinper.
His eyes had a dangerous gleam in them.
Valentine faced him boldly.
"You are right; I have."
"What Is this proof 1 Where did you
find it t"
"Do not ask me. It is enough that it is
sufficient for the purpose if I wish to use
it against you. I ask you again to leave
France and clear the innocent."
"I want that proof. Give it to me!" He
caught her firmly In his powerful arms;
his white face was convulsed with paa

hissing tones; his hot breath seemed to
burn her cheeks. "Give it to me, I say I

With a yell, the count sprang upon her,
and caught her by the throat, 'but her
sharp cry was echoed from the doorway.
As the duke and the duchess entered the
room the count released his daughter, and
cowering away, sank Into an easy-chair
and covered his face with his hands.
Valentino tottered toward the duchess,
and full, nearly fainting, in her arms.
The astonished duke looked from father
to daughter, as if at a loss for words.
"What does this mean J" he at length
asked the still trembling count.
"I am sorry that you should discover
us iu such an emharraHSing situation,'
stammered the count, with difficulty.
"Dot really, my daughtur
"What is tho matter with your datigh

Valentine stood upright with a great
effort, and looked steadily at the count.
"Sliall I speak, or will you agree to my
"Oli, speak if you will, my daughter."
The count came quite close, speaking
slowly. "Of course, you must do as you
think right. I am only your futher."
"My father!" Valentitie sbuddereilj
her startled eyes glanced at the three
faces confronting her. The count's snako
like piiza seemed to fascinate her. Kbe
put her hand to her head, speaking wild
ly: "Yes, yes, my fatherl What did sho

"Count, explain this scene. What has
so suddenly affected your daughter f" said
the duke, firmly.
"I the fact is, I am as much surprised
as you are. The events of the last few
days have undoubtedly unsettled my
daughter's mind. For the last five min
utes the child Iihh been uttering the most
alarming, impossible accufations and
threats. I fear she is mad."
"Mad!" cried the duchess, while Valen
tine stared ut the count as if doubting the
truth of what her quick perceptions were
grasping with fiitul accuracy.
"Yes, tnadiiine, there can be no doubt of
it. My daughter is mad!"
"Mad?" echoed Valentine. "Mad? Oh,
he says that I am mad! mad!"
The last word was a cry of wild de
spair, ami as it rang through the room,
Valentino fell insensible to the flour.
The duko raised her and laid her on
the sofa; the duchess, assisted by the
maid, who came running in at the sound
of Valentine's voice, quickly applied re
storatives. The count walked quickly up
and dowu, avoiding looking at his daugh
"Take him away" whispered the duch
ess; and the auke, understanding nor
glance, drew the count into an adjoining
Valentine slowly regained conscious
ness, turning out of the long, ueatn-iiKe
swoon, she saw the duchess bending anx
iously over her. She smiled as she recog
nized the khul, mothetly face, but the
next minute shivered aud glanced fear
fully around her.
"lie is not here; do you wish to see
him?" asked the duchess.
"No, no, not now; I am not strong
enough. Do not let him come."
"No; I will invite him to come with us
to the city. You will try and comjiose
yourself and sleep, my child. You are
over excited and troubled; giveupthink
ing, and rest. I will tell your father that
you must not be disturleil."
'I shall fuel quite well in a little while,"
Valentine said. "You must not remain
any longer; I have already detained you
some time. Marie will stay with me."
Valentine smiled wearily and sadly aa
the duchess kissed her. She was ques
tioning whether they would ever meet
Fortunately, the duke had persuaded
the count that he had better appear at
the reception, the minister having been
informed of his presence in the neighbor
hood. Tbe duchess entering, reported Valen-
tiue much better, but advised leaving her
to obtain rest and bleep. The count, after
a slight hesitation, agreed to be advised
by the duchess m regard to visiting his
dutighter, and soon after he set out alone
for the city.
Neither the duke nor his wife felt at
ease alout Valentine; and when Adrionne
described her interview with her friend'
and the count's anger, they thought it
only partly explained the scene they had
"The man is passionate, and has been
away from the society of ladies. He would
not intentionally injure his daughter,"
said the duke.
"Ho must be something worse than pas
sionate," exclaimed the duchess. "I am
positive that ho was choking her when
we surprised them at that time. Do you
know that I consider it dangerous to leave
her in his power so completely!"
"Oh, you were mistaken, my dear.
What! choke a delicate, lovely girl hie

The duchess and Adrienne were not
convinced by the duke's explanation.
Adrienne began to grow nervous in re
gard to Valentine's safety, but felt some,

Duke de Choiseul a few moments since."
"Valentine Is not here; and I think that
if you can leave your duties here without
it lieing noticed, you bad better go to her.
Buy nothing to any one. I will toll the
duke if he misses you."
"Why, you alarm met Yesterday I saw
"Do not look so worried. I cannot en

attention, the very thing I wish to avoid.

Hut when did this hapten!"
"Since morning; she was dressed to

duke is not suspicious, but I fear some
thing very terrible, The count was quite
ready to pronounce her mad, but Valen
tino is not inclined to lose her senses. I
left her quite weak, but perfectly Bensl
ble. Lose no time."
Tire marquis bad listened in shocked si
lence. He pressed the hand he held to
his lips, and with a low "Trust me," left
the crowded room. In a few minutes he
was riding rapidly toward Chateau La
His bright, clear-headed Valentine mad I
That was simply an absurdity. Ha had
talked to her within twenty-four hours,
and had left her in tbe gayest spirits, full
of interest in tbe coming presentation to
the Duke de CholseuL What had hap
pened to trouble her! Who had dared to
annoy her? Tbe count must have caused
this rapid alteration of spirits. With a
sudden feeling of terror, the marquis re
called a fact that he had tried his utmost
to forget. This was, bis first impression
of Valentine's father. It had been entire
ly unfavorable; now it recurred with ad
A RIPT 15 TUB CLOrD.
The duchess having left her, Valentine
tried in vain to explain, or put away fron
tier, the all-absorbing subject, which
threatened, with its torturing suggestions,
to drive her into insanity. Convinced,
now, of her father's guilt, she at tbe same
time felt her utter inability to act with
decision against htm. Again, was it her
duty to do it!
The opportunity to vindicate Jean Re
naud had been given her, and she had
shrunk from doing it at the expense of
her own father's life. She had been so
terrified at the mere contemplation of the
deed, that she had completely put herself
in her father's power.
Valentine did not know where a parent's
authority ended. Her father had her
completely at his mercy. Knowing her
suspicions, aware that she held what she
considered a sufficient proof of his guilt,
he had not hesitated to explain her condi
tion as the result of an attack of deliri
um, and attribute it to her anxiety for
Adrienne. If she could not induce him to
leave France, what would become of her!
Once having proved to him her weakness,
bad she not lost all hope of attaining her
She was fast in the toils. 8be coulj
fancy the wretched future stretching be
fore her, a period of dread and remoree
Thoughts of Adrienne assailed her weak
ened senses; .of Jean Renaud as she had
last beheld him, tenderly unclasping Ad' j
rienne's bands from around his neck, and
going away to his weary, endless toil.
The recollection was maddening. Tlx
man's sad, earnest face rose before her,
pleading for Justice, for mercy. Shi
thought of her father's face its expres
sion as he had caught at her throat a few
hours before, and she shuddered at bet
own sudden conviction. "I do not lov
bim. It is cot affection that is controlling
me ; it is a dread of the awful consequences ,
of the obloquy that such an action would
cast on the sacred name of daughter. Oh,
why did I find this necklace? Why baa
this terrible question been given to me tc
deal with! I who have nothing to guide
me but my conscience, and that I cannot
obey. If I only loved bim, then I could
willingly sacrifice all for his sake! Sacri
fice Adrienne! Leave her father to bit
fate! Is there a love strong enough to
make such an evil thing possible! Could
I do it! Never! He must do aa I bave
said, or I will, I must speak!"
Unable to be quiet, Valentine rose, dis
missed Marie, and again slowly looked
over the necklace. It held a magician's
power; for, as she gazed at it, every inci
dent of the strange story connected with
it seemed to be re-enacted before her
The twelve yeara that, with their stir
ring events and crowding incidents, bad
forced poor Renaud and the story of his
sad fate into dark oblivion, seemed to fade
away, and the soldier's cottage rose before
Valentine's excited imagination.
She saw, as in a vivid dream, the inci
dents narrated by the soldier, and added
to them the one terrible deed enacted by
a figure which resembled her futher, and
which pursued and struggled with an
other that took the form of Adrienne.
Wild with grief, rent by conflicting
emotions, Valentine placed the necklace
in a safe corner of a cabinet, and went in
to another room.
No sooner had she relinquished the tell
tale trinket, than she began to tremble
lest it should again disappear. She went
back, took It from the corner, aud re
placed it in her pocket.
"It must be my charge everywhere and
forever," she said to herself. "It will al
ways keep me miserable, and accuse Die
of not doing my duty."
Marie interrupted her despairing re
flection. The Marquis de Calonne wan in the
crimson drawing-room, aud would liko
few moments' conversation with her.
Valentine shivered and turned pale at
the words. Then the hot blood rushed to
her cheeks and set her heart beating as if
it would break its bounds.
Her first impulse was to refuse to see
him. Then it seemed to her boBt to meet
him for the last time. . .
An insane idea of forcing her father to
leave La Grange that very.nlght was now
upiiermost in ber thoughts. It kept ro
currlng to her mind as the only rcsouico
now left him. It influenced her when she
sent her lover a message that she would
Join him in a few minutes. -
She waited, trying to regain something
of her natural pp aianc ndususj mb
ner, but without success. i
He was standing near tbe table, on
which tbe jewel-casket still lay, when she
entered noiselessly and then stopped, un
able to speak or approach him. . "x
Her quickened pulses warned lier that
she could not control herself) but it was
too late, he turned and saw her. t n
If she had been a ghost he could not
have looked more startled. She was
white and haggard, and the color of her
long draperies added to the illusion. .
'I cannot understand this, Valentine!"
he cried, taking her cold hands in his and
kissing them. "What baa happened!" fl
Valontine shrank from bis eager eyea.
She tried to speak, but no sound came'
from her parted Hp,. Xho rig-id featnrea

the horror of her situation, which her
lover's presence only made more clear to
She sh.Kik her head and tried to with
draw her hands, but Henri de Calonne
was partly prepared for this, and he would
not notice her gestures.
"Tell me, Valentine," he aaid, gently.
"Perhaps I can help you."
"No one can," she murmured, with an
"No one, Valentine! Something very
strange must have occurred since this
morning. Are you going to sutler this
way without an effort to spare yourself!"
"I must I must lear it alone!"
"What! have a secret grief that I can
not share !" His voice was full of sad re
pioach. Valentino looked at him; utter despair
w is in every feature, in her voice and
"Do not upbraid me. I thought I was
strong enough to see you once more; it
was so hard to part without a word of ex
planations ur farewell "
"To part, Valentine!"
"Yes; do not ask the cause. We must
part. You must forget me, Henri."
The marquis looked at Valentine with
a searching, puzzled expression in his
face. Could it lie possible that some sud
den shock had affected the girl's reason!
Something in her steady eyes and in tbe
strong, firm mouth contradicted this ex
planation of her words.
Valentine read his thoughta.
"I am jierfectly sune, perfectly con
scious of the meaning of my words, and
quite sure of the necessity for speaking
as I do," she said, in still calmer tones.
"You ask me to forget you, Valentine,"
he said, speaking aa calmly as he could,
and controlling his emotions. "Could you
forget me if I told you it was necessary
to do so!"
"No, Henri. I could not. I never will
forget you never!"
"Then why do you require an impossi
bility from me!"
"Because it is for your happiness. My
misfortunes must not affect you. You will
in time love another; you will be happy,
as you deserve. Later, when you can
think of me calmly, try and do it kindly.
It you could know how miserable lam,
the horror and the susnse that sur
round me, you would not look so cold, so
indignant. You would pity me, Henri!
Ouly this morning I was so happy, and
now now 1 know that I shall never be
"Valentine, will you not try for one mo
ment to put yourself in my place! You
are generally cool, logical, and willing to
listen to reason. I do not comprehend
this rapid alteration in you. I bave no
clew to this change in your sentiments, in
your intentions. Answer me this, have I
ia any way caused you this sudden grief H
"I have not offended you, nor lost your
esteem, your love?"
"No, you are wholly unconnected with
tbis trouble, and you must remain so
"This secret, then, is your father's."
The vivid color that dyed Valentine's
cheeks verified his surmise. Valentine
Made no effort to answer bim. She sat
motionless, dreading his next words.
"Has be bouud you by any promise to
keep it to yourself? Is it by his advice
that you tell mo we must part?"
"Oh, no, no! he does not know be has
not told me what to do."
"Then, Valentine, you have surprised
some secret of his, and you voluntarily
accept the weight and the misery that
tbe knowledge of it entails upon you.
This is not just! It is an outrage to thus
injure an innocent girl! I will see your
father without dulay "
"No! not you must not ; you shall not
go to him! That would ruin everything.
I alone must ileal with him. You forget
he is my father."
"And for that reason you are to be sac
rificed. You forget, Valentitie, that before
tho count returned you became my prom
ised wife; until I release you from that
promise I claim the right to watch over
your welfare. Suppose that you were my
wife now, would you not let me share this
grief, and help you to keep this secret!
In that case you could not leave me, and
it would Ikj my duty to assist your father
In every way that a son can prove his de
votion and fidelity. Let me do it now,
Valentine. I swear to you to keep your
secret, and to do my utmost to aid . him.
He hits been long an exile, a wanderer,
jxxir, perhaps has had terrible tempta
tions to resist. I care not what this thing
is; confide it to me and I will help you to
leur the sorrow, shame, disgrace, infamy,
