The denizens of the sorvants'-liall nt Tho

with him a wheedling way which It wai
difficult to withstand.

"To a stranger, Mr. Charles," said Mr.

"She not In to-night, though 1 dare say

but for that matter Miss Hester's a favorlto

"But I understood there were only two

"Who told you that?"
"Sir ltichard mentioned It."
"Ah, very likely, but ho knows nothing
about the domestic arrangements; nor. for

"Hester-Hester Partridge Is her full

"Oh, honor I" protested Greengraves.
"Honor among thieves 1"
"Well, as to thieves," said Mr. Charles,
rilling a third glass, "1 "
"A figure of speech, my dear sir," tho
other added hastily. "Your very good

A few minutes later tho detective having,
with somo little difficulty, freed, himself
from the footman's company, stepped out
of one of the French-windows opening un
to the lawn at tho rear of tho house, and
trolled fortli to enjoy tho ulr, and shako off

Greengraves rellevtlvoly. ('0r to, hide a

"A WAIM.VO CRY (IF OIUKP."
At Hint moment tho sound of it woman's
voice fell upon his ear, and turning In the
direction from which It eamo, he saw two
shadows at what appeared to bo it door lead
ing from the "Wilderness," as that pirt of
the Grounds was called, Lntutlw lune with
out. It was the voice of an oNlerly woman that
Greengraves first heard, and that woman
was nono other than tho "Aunty" of whom
he had just been thinking.
"I must bo going now," she snld; "and
you must try ivid bear with It, dear, as pa
tiently as you ran, and all will come right
In the end. 1 feel sure of that. Only pray
be careful. If you made the least slip of
tho tongue, you don't know what trouble

I will be careful for my own sake as well."
"Yes, dear, I am sure you will. Slicing
nil you have gone tliroiurh too. This was
your only chance. Oncedown, always down.
I know that! '
They were silent for a moment, and then
the elder woman spoke again :
"I've been thinking over what you wero
telling mo, Hester, about that man, You
say when you met him in the passage ho
did not appear tho least surprised, did not
even seem to recognize yon. Are you quite
sure he is the same p.'ison? One hears of
cases of extraordinary likenesses."
"There Is no mistake, mother."
"But do you mean to tell mo ho was not
nt all taken aback at meeting tho woman he
hud so wronged, so heartlessly deserted?
JJid he not even change color? '
"llo did not move a muscle. 1 have been
thinking that perhaps as 1 had been In tho
house some hours he might have sen me
before, although I hnd not seen him, and
that he hail prepared himself for what must
happen, pur my part, tho shock was so
sudden, so terrible, I trembled like n leaf, I
should have fallen if I had not clung to the
balustrade. Ho looked straight Into myfaco
straight into my eyes, und passed on."
"You say ho calls himself Craven, and he
Is a sort of clerk?"
"Cuthbert Craven his name Is supposed to
be, Bnd ho Is Sir Hlchnrd's secretary. Tho
name I knew him by four years ago tho
name ho gave us was most likely a false
"Or," said tho cider woman quickly, "tho
name he uses hero maybe sham. One thing,
though, seems pretty plain to me. If he Is
really the same man and you are not mis
taken, he is not likely to interfere with you.
You leave him alone, and ho will leave you
nlone. He's nothing to you now, and you
nre nothing to him. And now I must go, or
1 shall lose my last omnibus, I am afraid."
The detective, standing In the deep shad
ow of tho trees, heard the women exchango
a kiss, and then ho listened to tho sound of
the mother's retreating steps upon the gravel
path of tho lane without, and as they died
nway at length In the far distance, a pro
found silence fell upon the garden, and its
surroundings, and the still green surface of
the ghostly pond.
A moment later n soft wind whispered
plaintively among the naked branches, and
bowed the heads of thetallests blades of the
rank grass growing round the trunks of tho
trees, and,following it, deep solid and a wall
ing cry of grief.
Cautiously advancing his head, and cran
ing his neck to get a better view of what was
passing, Greengrnves's eyes rested upon tho
slim lit lie figure of a woman who could bare
ly have reached her twenty-first year, with
n face that at times must have been a pretty
one, but now was distorted by passion as
she knelt there among tho grass, that the
slender lingers of her hands twisted and
dragged up by the roots, whilst in a halt'
choked voice, yet perfectly audible to tho
sharp ears of the spy, she kept repeating:
"Nothing to me nothing to him 1 Noth
ing, nothing!" and then in what seemed to
be a burst of uncontrollable agony, sheciied
aloud: "Oh, Heaven I I lovohiin-I lovo
hlni still! 1 cannot help it."
And as slio spoke she Hung herself face
downwards upon the earth and burst into a
torrent of tears.
Mr. Greengraves drew back his head
again, reflectively stroked his chin with his
right hand, and with his left deeply thrust
down into his trousers-pocket, discreetly re
traced his steps towards the house.
Twenty minutes later the superior person,
Miss Hester Partridge, made her appear
ance in tho servants'-hall, very calm and
Millet, but with an air of intcnss weariness,
and with eyes which Mr. Greengravos
shrewdly judged were yet a little red and
swollen with the blinding tears lie had seen
"This," said Mr. Greengraves, as he walk
ed homewards that night-"this Is really a
most remarkable household. Hang me If
there's a cupboard In it that has not got its
own private and particular skeleton! Skele
ton? Skeletons, I ought to say. There's

night, that her manner was somewhat
strange, ami next day, when the houso was
turned topsy-turvy, and policemen taking
down everybody's evidence, he felt It his
mjr iu mention it, adding:
"If I'd thought what dreadful things wero
going to happen though, I'd ha'-I'd ha'
There, 1 don't know what I'd ha' done."
But no ono but Hester Partridge herself
could have had any Idea of tho dreadful
thing about to happen.
The detective, when ho .stood among tho
trees upon tho bank of tho stagnant pond,
had pronounced tho latter to be the very
jilaco for n suicide, or to hide a body In; but
Hester Partridge's body did not remain long
Tho page-boy, Edwards, going into tho
shrubbery tho first thing In tho morning to
gather somo "rabblls'-meat" for n favorite
of his ho kept In an nuthouse, found a scarf
sho had worn lying upon the bunk, and go
ing closer to Inspect, saw something limit
ing upon the surfiieo of tho water, partly
covered with green chlekweed, which
proved to bo tho unfortmuito girl's hat.
Edward's return with theso articles led to
nn Immediate search. Hester's room was
found to be empty, whilst tho bed had not
been slept on. Half an hour later the pond
was dragged, and the lifeless body, with Us
whlto rigid face, and with Itselotlilng, soak
ed and sodden, clinging to the lithe form,
was gently laid upon the guns, lu (he centre
of a shuddering group of servants, whilst
some one bore tho tidings of the tragedy to
tho master of the house.
A little after noon Mr, Greengraves pre
sented himself at the garden-gate und asked
to see Mrs. Geo, the housekeeper. n0 found

Mr.' Greengraves win of opinion that It

"She seemed to hu 11 nice quiet respectable

"Poor thing! sho was," replied Mrs. Gee;
"and He.ivcn forgive 1110 If it was wicked,
but 1 was very fond of her. She spent most
of her time with 1110, and In my room."
"You hud known her noiiio time?"
"No; not more than three weeks. Sho had

"Would you allow me?" said Mr. Green

housekeeper's work-box. "To bo sure.
Seems satisfactory. It's rather remarkable

"Well, jes'l twice, but sho happened

"I would take care of that, If I wero you.

graves. "And now I will wish you good

later, "whatever did the man want to see
me for? He never spoke aboutonytliing that
1 can remember."
Mr. Greengraves seemingly did not just
now want to speak to anybody, but passing
through tho passage, let himself quietly on'
of tho street-door, which ho closed nftoi
Just as lie reached the garden-gate til
postman came up.
"Any letters?" asked Mr. Greengraves.
"Only one for Mr. Cuthbert Craven."
"I'll take It," said the detective; and then
when the nianhad gone, ho turned, and
cautiously glanced up nt tho windows of th

moment's hesitation he pocketed the epistle
he had thus boldly obtained possession of,
and walked rapidly away.
But before ho turned from the lane into
tho High-street, in a quiet corner he drew il
forth, and had another good look at it.
"It's a risky thing, perhaps," said he:
"but it's too tcmptl.ig to resist. It Is a wo
man's handwriting not a lady's. It look?

'THKRI2 CAN I1K ') HOfllT WHO IS TIIK

About three hours later, Mr. Groengravop
crossed the threshold of the great Govern
ment ollicn in Whitehall, of which Sir llicli-
ard Fordyce was the head. Beforo tho door
was a string of carriages and cabs. To and
fro, from the hull to tho street, a stream of
persons passed; those coming away, for the
most part with a subdued ana half-stunned
look upon them, dazed ns it were, as ppr-jile
might look who had stared open-mouthed
at the sun.
As Mr. Greengraves eamo upon the scene,
n short tliiekly-buiit man, swarthy skinned,
with eyes that looked as black us sloes
against their blood-shot wdiites, with Ink
black crispy hair, square jaws, and general
ly a heavy sullen face, was listening In what
seemed like a molten fury only half-suppressed,
to the bland utterances of the sleek
"I've told you before, my good fellow, It's
no manner of use. Sir Richard is much too
busy to s.'c anyone to-day he hasn't made
an appointment with."
Uttering some lowguttural sounds that the
detective fancied must have been either
Italian or Spanish, the dark-eyed man
swung himself from the steps, glowering
evilly and grinding his teeth, whilst Mr.
Greengraves, with the oily and persuasive
way which ho so well knew how to assume
when the occasion called for It, passed his
card with a smothered whisper.
The porter at first sight of the pasteboard
shook Ids head, then stared hard at Mr.
Greengiaves.tlien relaxed gently by degrees,
and made half a promise:
"'Frald ou'll have to wait a longt':no
Mr. Greengraves, with the expression of
n martyr of long and bitter experiences, ex
pressed Ills willingness to do so.
Still the stream of persons desirous of In
gress or egress poured In and out of tho
towering building, up and down tho broad
stono steps, past the marble columns; some
radiant, some anxious, somo scowling black
ly the most part, if not all, whispering
eagerly, consulting, and comparing notes.
Presently, Mr. Greengrnves's card having
passed up to the presence, a messiigo came
down that he might follow it. This ho did

carpet past a sprinkling of grey-headed,-solemn-looking,

self at last, not without somo trepidation,
crossed the threshold of the presence-chamber.
And here, indeed, lie was Impressed by

Quite aged and venerable men listened to
this, and when at last the speaker ceased,
there was a deep murmur of applause. Then
earnest congratulations and hand-shakings,
nnd then the assembly slowly dissolved and
the great man and the Bpy wero left alone.
Mr. Grecngrnves was making his mind up.
"Yes," said he to himself ;"tho best thing

"Possibly. At any rate her mother, aeon

"Outrageous! But the woman must be

made into tli 1 whole circumstances of tho

"A private inquiry," said the detective
"Why?" a,ked the other.
Mr. Greengraves rose, walked to the door,
opened it quickly, looked around, satisfied
himself seemingly that there were noeaves
drnppcrs, returned to his seat, and drew
from his pocket the stolen letter.
The" adhesive portion of 'tho envelope had

A FUIi-Cutcliinjr Cat.
An instanco of extraordinary aniiuul
instinct nnd intolligoueo is reported
from Kllondalo, Ulster county. Mrs.
Sarah Drown, of that village, lias a
largo Maltese cat that is the mother of
three kittens now nearly half grown.
It was noticed lately that the old cat
was regaling her offspring with some
lino specimens of perch and sunlisli,
which sho brought in nieo nnd fresh
daily, ono day coming iu with seven.
Slio'was watched ami it was found that
she ca'ight tho fish herself in Funlino
iiiillpout, near the village. The pond
had Ueen drained down quite low lately
nnd tho cat would crouch down at the
edge of tho water und when tillsli eamo
along within reach sho would spring
upon It la the water und rarely miss
her aim. Sho struck tho lish first with
her claws, and then dipped her head
under tho water, took her prey in her
mouth nnd swam ashore.
Besides lish, tho cut serves her fami
ly with birds, not loss than two of
which sho provides every day. The
most rcmarkablo fact about tho cat,
however, is tho system she has adopted
In feeding her kittens. When sho
comos in with a small meal she will not
permit any miscellaneous scrumbliug
ivftor it, by which ono kitten might gel
more than its mates, but sho lays tho
lish or bird beforo one of tho young
ones. The other two sho obliges to re
main quietly at n distance while the ono
is caiing, enforciug her authority
ngnlust uny protest on their pari by
frequent cullings. When the kilton lias
oaten one-third of the inual, the old cut
removes lite dinner and places it in
front of another kitten which eats its
third unmolested, when tho third kit
ton's tiirftccmios. Tho kitten that Ih
served lirst on ono day becomes lust on
the list tho next day, und that roiuiiott
is maintained with' uuvaninr Impar
