A TERRIBLE DISCOVERY
Pierro was about to enlarge still fur
ther on the agreeable qualities of his new
acquaintance when the door of the talle
opened, and M. Dumont canto in, accom
panied by Clementine.
■All, good morning, brigadier!" he
said, shaking hands with Roger, who was
an old acquaintance. "You are early on
the road today. U there anything stir
ring or special}"
"Nothing tiiui-h, M. Duinuut," replied
the gendarme. "A conple of escaped

the lookout fur, and here they are some
where in or about the forest of La
Marche, and wo are on onr way there
' Hush:" mud M. l>» nil iut, witli a sig

had gone M to the window, which
commanded a view of tho road, and waa
eagerly watching for any sign of Charles.

"Oh, yes," said M. Dninont, smiling.
"I forgot that of course yon don't know

the young lady whom you see at the

■aid the gallant brigadier.
"But," said Dmnont anxiously, "what

Here he was interrupted by Pierre,
who had left the room and now ran in
crying out that M. Charles was coming;
that he bad neon the carriole from the

Cleinentino hrvstoned out to the door to
meet him. Hi) was out of the carriole
and across the conrtyord in two strides,
and joyful indeed was the meeting be
tween the lovers, while M. Dumont, re
lieved from the momentary fear which
fae gendarme's words had aroused in
him, clasped his son's hand mid welcomed
him with a full heart. Before the greet
ings were finished tlio notary and the
cure, arm in arm, turned in at the gate,
and the whole party went into the salon
together, where Picard awaited them
with the papers all in order, and noth
ing missing this time. The brigadier
joined them there on the invitation of
"Well," he said laughingly, clapping
Charles on tho shoulder, "you are a
preMy bridegroom to keep a lady wait
Clementino shot rather nu indignant
glance at him—as much as to say how
dared ho iusiniyite that Charles could do
anything that wasn't quite perfect,
while Charles himself pleaded the bad
state of the roada for his being a little
late, adding, us ho looked round, that
thero was no time lost by that, since M.
Gerinenil had not yet come down stairs.
"My friend Germenil is not as young
as lie was, nny moro thiin myself," said
M. Dutnon*. "And yesterday was a
fatiguing dny for him. He had a long
drive to begin with."
After a few minutes' moro conversa
tion Charles went up stairs to see what
was detaining M. Uennenil, and pres
ently his voice was heard calling Pierre
to bring the bunch of duplicate keys, at
he bad knocked and got no answer, and
he feared M. Germenil must be ill.
Pierro ran up stairs with the keys, fol
lowed by Clementine.
"Quick, Pierre, quick, give me th'
key!" cried Charles.
But tho key was not there. What was
to bo done?
"Wemust break thedoor," said Cliarles
And accordingly ho and Pierro threw
themselves against it with all their force,
It creaked, gavo way, and the three
rushed into the room. Then a dreadful
shriek ran through the house as Clemen
tine fell senseless beside the bed where
lay the body of her murdered father.
M. Dumont, followed by the rest of
the party, rushed up stairs to see what
was the matter and stood speechless
with horror at the terrible spectacle.
Roger the moment he saw what had
happened gave the order to his men,
"See that no one leaves the house." Then
he returned to the room to examine fur
ther. Charles bad in the meantime car
ried Clementiuo to her own room, where
he left hor in charge of Margot, who did
all she could for her with many com
passionate exclamations of "Pauvre
mam'srllu! pauvre p'titel"
11. Dumont assured the brigadier that
the mnrdered man had not a aingle en
emy in tho world.
"Had be any money in his possession?"
uked the officer.
"Ho had 12,000 francs, Clementine's
dot, which was to have been handed over
to my son today as soon as the contrat
"Here," said Charles, "here is his |>ock
etbook," catching sight of the edge of it
under the pillow and pulling it out.
"But it is empty," he cried. '-There
has been robbery as well as murder!"
"Have you any suspicions?" asked the
Both Charles and M. Dumont declared
they had not.
"But I have," said Pierre.
"You?" they all exclaimed. -Who,
then, do you suspect?"
"The woman who slept here last
"If you mean a poor looking woman
who was in the salle, she left the house
a short time ago. I saw her pass out of
the courtyard," said one of the men.
"But why should you suspect her?"
said M. Dumont.
"In any caso we must try to find her
and hear what account she gives of her
self," said Roger, desiring two of his
men to go after her in different direc
tions. "She is not long gone, and you
will toon overtake her."
Ho then proceed*! to question Pierre,
who gave an account of what happened
» the morning, Marie's attempted es
cape and the purse of gold he had de
tected in her possession.
Things began to look very black
against the unfortunate woman.
As the brigadjer said it would be nec
essary to «n. -Mt*»i statement of
what had c —"■• «vi
the two men who had been in the salle
when he arrived, as he said it wonld be
necessary that they should !»■ examined'
as well as every one who had slept in
the house that night.
Pierre replied that he believed they
were in their room, where they had gone
after asking for their bill, and t li.it he
would go and fetch them. But just as
he was about to leave the room for this
purpose the door opened, and the two
strangers met him face to fare on the
They ha 1 anxiously watched the prog
ress of events; had heard from their
room Clementine's cry of horror, which
announced the discovery of her father's
murder; the ordcT given that no on*
abonld leave the honae, as well as the
bustle ami talk of thu inquiry. Remond
bad smiled cynically at the success of his
maneuver to gut Marie out of the house.
Then, swing from the window the two
gendarmes start off quickly iv opposite
directions, he guessed pretty rorreotlv
that the suspicion had turned on Marie.
Finally, the party having guno down
again to the salle, he decided tlmi now
whs their time to make a move to get off
in a naturnl, unsuxpicioua way. He
knew very well they would have to give
an account uf themselves to the gen
iiiiriiii'K before they rouli hope to get
away, and M divided that the bent way
would be to go down qnietly, as if they
suspected nothing which had happened,
and ask Pierre if their bill was ready, ai
they wixhed to leave. He had torn*

"M. Uermenil has been nmrdereil, and
I iimut say that your manner is most in

He waa most unfavorably impreHsed by
the api>e«rance of the newcnmern, whom
he had not noticed tho evening before
and observed to Charles, who f-t 1 bo
side him, that hu could not iiuagino why
lierre had a room to such suspi
cious looking characters as these men, in
which Charles quite agreed.
The brigmlier then deninndiit to toe

to Lyons, at which iinnm UseanpaalM

"that as yon have nothing further to
ask us and as our papers are all en regie
we may now nmme our journey."

cannot leave hero at present. Till the
inquiry in finiHhed no one can l«i al
lowed to leave the house. We now
await tho arrival of tho woman who
slept hero lout night, and of whom my
men have none in search."
As he finished sjwakiug v noiso was
heard outside, and presently Marie was
brought in by one of the gendarmes.
She had been overtaken beforo sho had
gone any great distance. Indeed, not
having any reason to think sho wonld
be followed, sho had sat down a mo
ment by the wayside to rent, and there
the gendarme had found her. He
had refused to tell her why sho was
thus brought back or of what sho was
accused. The name of her terrible hus
band, so recently spoken by the sinister
looking stranger, had filled her with ter
ror, and she feared ha, wan in Bomo wny
again al«>nt to cause her injury or uu
bappincsft, or most likely both. The poor
creaturo trembled in every limb, and the
mental agony one was suffering showed
itself in every feature.
Her attenuated form, htr wan lace
and hollow eyes, with the wistful, uux
ious look in them of a dumb animal who
dreads and yet expects a blow, excited
Charles' compassion, notwithstanding
tho terrible nrrusation which was hang
ing over her. He saw she was hardly able
to -f••!:• i. and advancing ho gave her v

she-was in some terrible danger.

Then after a panao she seemed to realise

cried in piercing tone*, "do I hear aright'
Yon accuse me of murdering him, my
benefactor? Before that God whoa*
wrath falls thus heavily npon ro* 1

Her looks and tones were so full of
truth and genuine feeling that tb* listen*
er» lirxitnted. and their conviction of her
sniilt U-isun to waver. Perceiving this
in tin lr mom, Remond insidiously inter
[i— '1 i ■ i in' i ftvrt. that ho wm rare it
wn<nll right, and that roadame wonid
hare no difficulty in showing where the
mi nit y came from which Pierre had seen
in her possession that morning, and that
l«)int wtt led there would be no longer
any reason for suspecting her.
Marie eagerly explained that the mon
ey had been given to her by M. Qenne
nil the previous evening.
"Th- unfortunate gentleman probably
knew Madame previously and took an
interest in her, which would account for
hi* giving her a purse of gold," mid Re
"Is that so?' demanded the brigadier.
Bn* Marie was obliged to admit that
the had never seen M. Oennenil till her
arrival at Les Bons Amis the previous
.she felt the web closing around her
and struggled helplessly to escape.
"It is a likely story," said the brigadier,
"that any one would give so much
money to an utter stranger, aa you admit
yourself to have been to M. Oennenil.
Let me see," he added, examining the
purse which had been taken from Marie*
pocket, "one—two — three—four—five
pieces of gold, and a purse to carry them
in addition. A likely gtory indeed!"
"Still," said Remond, with well as
mhih'il sympathy, "we must not forget
that madame has not contradicted her
self, and that she accounted for the pos
session of this money in precisely th*
same way when Pierre fonnd her this
"Yes," said Pierre, interrupting him,
""•hen I found her trying to escape from
the house before any one was up. That
did not look very like an honest woman."
"Why," said M. Dumoiit, "did you thus
seek to fly from a house where yon had
been so kindly treated?"
"Yes," said Pierre, "and after promis
ing M. Germenil, who had been so kind
to you, that you would not go away till
be had seen you again."
Marie remained silent. She could not
answer these questions without disclos
ing all which she had sought to conceal
by flight She looked around her de
spairingly, and seeing an expression of
l.ii v on Charles' face she appealed to
him not to condemn her without some
"I know," sbo said, "that appearances
arc against me, but indeed—indeed I us
Charles had listened in silence to what
had passed, but though appearances were
so innch against her he did not feel at
all convinced of her guilt and now said
so boldly, reminding those present that
as yet there was nothing proved, and
that mere suspicion, however strong,
could not condemn.
"Be sore," he said, addressing Marie,
'that justice will be done. There must
be a thorough investigation of this af
fair. My father and I will tee to thai."
Remond began to think that matter*
were not going quite as he wished them,
and observed that himself and his friend
were also interested in the matter being
satisfactorily cleared np, and that there
was one point which ces messieurs had
overlooked, and which might help to
elucidate tlie mystery. Perhaps his
(rood friend M. Pierre would tell them if
any of the rooms adjoining the one in
which the murdered man had slept had
been occupied that night. The number
of the lamented gentleman's room was,
he understood, No. 18.
"An unlncky number," he added, "was
"yea," said Pierre, "she"—pointing to
Marie—"she slept in No. 8."
"Then," continued Remond, "as such
a deed could not possibly have been com
tnitted without some little noise, ma
dame doubtless heard something—somo
little disturbance—of which she will tell
us, and which will perhaps give some
elnw to the real culprit."
Thus, with devilish ingenuity, did this
monster complete the chain of evidence
aga<"4t his victim.
She of course could not meet this new
suggestion with any sort of satisfactory
answer. She could only affirm again and
again that she had been so overcome with
fatigue she had slept heavily, not awak
ing till the sun was np, and that she had
heard nothing, absolutely nothing.
The brigadier listened incredulously—
her story seemed to him quite unworthy
of belief—and he said that there was no
use wasting further time. It was his
duty to arrest her, and baring takes
down her statement in writing he and
his men would convey her to the gen
darmie, where she would be detained
till further inquiries were made.
Ai, this a gleam of triumph passed
over Remond's face. He was safe, at
any rate. That was all he cared for.
He felt no pity for the creature he
was so remorselessly sacrificing. No
memory of the love she had borne him,
no thought that she was the mother of
his child, caused him to falter for a mo
ment in liia fell purpose. He wonld hare
r-;-ii(lcil such considerations had they
been suggested to him as mere puling
sentimentalities. The man was long
dead in him. The predatory animal
