Tho firot streak cf daylight found mo al
ready footln;; it through the forest by paths
known to few savo tho woodcutters, but
-with which many a boyish exploration
had tnado ino familiar. From Coton End
tlio London road lies plain and fair through
Stratfcrd-on-Avon and Oxford. Hut my
plan, the better to evade pursuit, was, in
btcad, to cross the forest ill a northeasterly
direction, and passing by Warwick to
strike tho great north road between Cov
entry and Davcntry, which, running
thence southeastward, would take me as
straight aa a bird might fly through Dun
stable, St. Albans and Garnet to London.
My baggage consisted only of my cloak,
sword an4 dagger, and for money I had
but a gold angul and a few silver bit 9 of
doubtful value. But I trusted that thl3
store, slender as it was, would meet my
charges as far as London. Once there I
mast depend on my wits cither for provi
dence at home or a passage abroad.
Striding steadily up and down hill, for
Ardnn forest is made up of hill:) and dolls
which follow ono another as do tho wnve
and trough of tho sea, only less regularly,
I made my way toward Wootton Wawen.
As soon as I espied its bnttlonientcd church
lying in a wooded bottom below mo I
kept a morn easterly course, and leaving
Henley -in-Arilon far to the left passed
down toward Lock Wootton. The damp,
dead bracken underfoot, the leafless oaks
and gray Eky overhead nay, tho very cry
of tho bittern fishing iu the bottoms
seemed to be at one with my thoughts, fur
these were dreary and sad enough.
Hut hope and a fixed aim form no bad
makeshifts for happiness. Striking tho
broad London road as I had purposed, I
slept that night at Ityton Dunsmnor and
tho next at Towcester, and the third day,
which rose bright and frosty, found mo
- stepping gayly southward, travel stained
Indeed, but dry and whole. My spirits
rose with the temperature. For a time I
put the past behind me and found amuse
ment In the eights of the rond in the
heavy wagons and long trains of. pack
horses and the cheery greetinas which
met me with each mile. After all, I had
youth and strength, and the world beforo
me, and particularly Stony Stratford,
where I meant to dine.
There was ono troublo common among
wayfarers which did not touch me, and
that was tho fear cf robbers, for he would
be a sturdy beggar who would rob an
armed foot passenger for the sake of an
angel, and the groats were gone. So I felt
tio terrors on that account, and even when
aliout noon I heard a horseman trot up
behind mo and rein in his horse so as to
keep pace with mo at a walk, step for step
a thing which might hare seemed sus
picious to some I took no heed of him. I
was engaged with my first view of Strat
ford and did not turn my head. We had
walked on so for 60 paces or more before
it struck me as odd that the men did not
Then I turned, and shading my eyes
from the sun, which stood just over his
shoulder, said, "Good day, friend."
"Good day, master," ho answered.
Tio was a stout fellow, looking like a
citizen, although ho had a sword by bis
side and wore it wih an air of importance
which the sunshine of opportunity might
have ripened into a swagger. Ills dress
was plain, and bo sat a good hackney as a
miller's Kick might have sat it. His face
was the last thing I locked at. When I
raised my eyes to it, I got an unpleasant
start. Tho man was no stranger. I knew
him in a moment for the messenger who
bad summoned toe to the chancellor's
Tho remembrance did not please me,
and reading In the fellow's sly look that
ho recognized mo and thought he had
mado a happy discovery on finding me I
hultv! abruptly. Ho did tho same.
"It Is a lino morning," he said, taken
aback by my sudden movement, but affect
ing an indifference which the sparklo In
his eye belied. "A rare day for the time
"It Is," I answered, gazing steadily at
"Going to London? Or may be only to
Stratford?" ho hazarded. He fidgeted un
comfortably under my eye, but still pre
tended ignorance of mo.
"That is as may be," I answered.
"No offense. 1 am snre." ho said.
I cast a quick gianco up and down tho
road. There happened to bo no one in
sight. Look here!" I replied, stepping
forward to lay my hand cn the horse's
shoulder, bat the man reined back and
prevented me, thereby giving mo a clew
to his character, "you aro in the service
of the bishop of Winchester?"
Ills face loll, and he could not conceal
his disappointment at being recognized.
Well, master," he answered reluctantly,
"perhaps I am, and perhaps I am not."
"That is enough." I said shortly. "And
you know mo. V'ou need not lie about It,
man, for I can see yon do. Now, look here.
Master Steward, or whatever your name
It is Master Prltchard," he put In
sulkily, "and I am not ashamed of it. "
"Very well. Then let us understand
ene another. Do you mean to Interfere
Ho grinned. "Well, to beplaln. I do,"
he replied, reining his horse back another
step. "I have orders to look out for yon
and bavo yon stopped If I find you. And
I roust do my duty, sir. I am sworn to it,
"lght,"said I calmly, "and I must do
mine, which Is to take care of my skin."
And I drew my sword and advanced ppon
him with a flourish. "We will soon de
cide this little matter," I added grimly,
one eye on him and one on the empty
road, "if you will be good enough to de
But there was no light In the fellow.
By good luck, too. bo was so startled that
he did not do what he might have done
with safety namely, retreat and keep me
In sight until soiuo passers Ly came up.
Ho did give hack Indeed, but it was
against tho hank. "Have a care!" hecriod
In a fume, his eve following my sword
nervously. Ho did not try to draw his
own. "There U no call lor Bgoung, i
"But I say there Is," I replied bluntly.
"Call and cause I Either you flg b me,

Kou may go to Bath for mo!" ho
spluttered, his face the color of a turkey
cock's wattles with rngo.
" Do yon mean it, my friend?" I said.
and I played my point about his leg, half
minded to give him a little prod by way of
earnest. "Mako up your mind."
"Yes!" ho shrieked out, suspecting my
purpose and bouncing about in his saddle
liko a parched pea. "Yes, I eayl" he
roared. "Do yon bear me? Yon go your
way, and I will go mine."
"That is a bargain," I said quietly,
"and mind you keep to it."
I put up my sword with my face turned
from him, lest he should see the curl of
my lip and tho light in my eyes. In
truth, I was uncommonly well pleased
with myself and was thinking that if I
came through all my adventures as well I
should do merrily. Outwardly, however,
I tried to ignore my victory and to make
things as easy as I could for my friend if
ono may call a man who will not fight him
a friend, a thin? I doubt. "Which way
are you going?" I asked amicably "to

"All right!" I said cheerfully, feeling
that my dignity could take care of itself
now. "Then so far we may go together.
Only do you remember tho terms. After
dinner each goes Lis own way."
Ho nodded again, and we turned and
went on in silence, eying ono another
askance, like two ill matched dogs coupled
together, lint luckily our forced com
panionship did not last long, a quarter of
a mile and a bend in tho road bringing ns
to tho first low, gray houses of Stratford.
A long, strangling village it seemed, made
up of inns strewn along tho road, like
beads threaded on a rosary. - And, to be
sure, to complete the likeness, we came
presently upon an ancient etone cross
standing on the green. I pulled np In
front of this with a sigh of pleasure, for
on cither sido of it, one facing the other,
was an inn of the better clnss.
"Well," I said, "which shall it be tho
Rose nnd Crown, or the Crown without tho
"Choose for yourself," he answered
churlishly. "I go to the other."
I shrugged my shoulders. After all, yon
cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's
ear, and if a man has not courage ho Is not
likely to havo good fellowship. But the
words angered me nevertheless, for a
shabby, hulking fellow lounging at my
elbow overheard tbem and grinned. A
hiccoughing, blear eyed man he was an I
had ever met. witb a red nose and the
rags of a tattered cassock about him. I
turned away in annoyance and chose the
Crown at hazard, and pushing my way
through the knot of horses that stood teth
ered at the door went in, leaving the two
to their devices.
I found a roaring Cre In the great room
and three or four yeoman standing about
it, drinking ale. But I was hot from
walking, so after saluting tbem and or
dering my meal I went and sat for choioe
on a bench by the window away from the
firo. The window was one of a kind com
mon In Warwickshire houses, long and
low and beetle browed, the story above
projecting over it. I sat there a minuto
looking idly out at tho inn opposite, a
heavy stone building with a walled court
yard attached to it, such an inn as was
common enough about the time of the
wars of the roses, whon wayfarers looked
rather for safety than comfort. Presently
I saw a boy come out of it and start up the
rond at a run. Then, a minute later, the
ragged fellow I had seen on the green camo
out and lurched across the road. He
seemed to be making, though uncertainly,
for my inn, and, sure enough, just as my
bread and bacon the latter hot and hiss
ing were put before me, he staggered
into the room, bringing a strong smell of
alo and onions with him. "Pax vobis-
coin!" he said, leering at me with tipsy
I guessed what he was a monk, one of
those unfortunates still to be found here
and there up and down tho country, whom
King Henry, when he put down the mon
asteries, had made homeless. I did not
look on the class with much favor, think
ing that for most of them tho cloister, even
if the queen should succeed in setting tho
obeys on their legs again, would have few
attractions. But I saw that the simple
farmers received his scrap of Latin witb
respect, and I nodded civilly as I went on
with my meal.
I was not to get off so easily, however.
Ho cant and planted Wlniself opposite to
"Pax vobiseum, my son," he repeated.
"The alo Is cheap here and good."
"So is the ham, good father," I replied
cheerfully, not pausing in my attack on
tho victuals. "I will answer for n much."
"Well, well," the knave replied, witb
ready wit, "I breakfasted early. I am con
tent. Landlord, another plate and a full
tankard. Tho young gentleman would
have me dino witb him."
I could not tell whether to be angry or
to l.ingh at his impudence.
"The gentleman says he will answer for
it!" repeated the rascal, with a twinkle In
his eye, as the landlord hesitated, lie was
by no means so drunk as he looked.
Xo, no. father." I cried, joining in the
genera! iaugh into which tho farmers by
tho f re broke. "A cup of nie is in reason,
and for that I will pay, but for no more.
Drink it and wish me godspeed."
"I will do more than that, lad," he an
swered. Swaying to and fro my cup,
which he had seized in his grasp, be laid
bis hand on the window ledga beside me,
as thousb to steady himself, and stooped

taken aback and wondering, while the
bacon cooled on the plate before me, what
I was to do. I did sot doubt the monk
was telling the truth. Why shonld he lie
to xoe? And I cursed my folly in trusting
to a coward's honor or a serving man's
good faith. But lamentations were use
less What was I to do? I had no horse
and no means of getting one. I was in
strange country, and to try to escape on
foot from pnrsoers who knew the roads
and had tho law on their side, would be a
hopeless undertaking. Yet to be hauled
back to Coton End a prisoner I could not
face that. Mechanically I raised a morsel
of bacon to my lips, and as I did so a
thought occurred to mo an Idea suggest
ed by somo talk I had beard the evening
before at Towcester.
Fanciful as the plan was, I snatched at
it, and knowing each Instant to be pre
cious took my courago In my hand and
my tankard. "Here," I cried, speaking
suddenly and loudly, "hero is bad luck to
purveyors. Master Host!"
There wero a couple of stablemen within
hearing, lounging in the doorway, besides
the landlord and his wife and the farmers.
T caught a jumpier rf htm. irfld eyed ami
frantic with fear.
A villager or two also had dropped In, and
tbcro wcro two peddlers lying half atJccp
in tho corner. All these pricked np their
ears more or less at my words. But, liko
most country folk, they were slow to take
in anything new or unexpected, and I had
to drink afresh and say again, "Here Is
bad luck to purveyors!" before any one
took it up.
Then the landlord showed ho understood.
"Aye, so say I!" he cried, with an oath.
"Purveyors, indeed! It is such as they
give t'-e queen a bad came."
"Gf. bless her!" quoth the monk loyal
ly. "And ilrown the purveyors!" a farmer
"They were hero a year ago and left ns
as bare as a shorn sheep," struck in a
strapping villager, speaking at a whito
heat, but telling me no news, for this was
what I had heard at Towcester the night
before. "The queen should lie warm If
she uses all tho wool they took! And the
pack horses they purveyed to carry oS tha
plunder why, the packmun avoid Strat
ford ever since as though we had the black
death! Oh, down with the purveyors, say
I! Tho first that comes this way I will
show the bottom of the Ouse. Aye, that I
will, though I hang for it!"
Easy, easy, Tom Miller!" the host in
terposed, affecting an air of assurance,
even while he cast fin eye of trouble at his
flitches. "It will be another ten years be
fore they harry us again. There is Pot
ter's Pury! They never took a tester's
worth from Potter's Pury I Xo, nor from
Preston Gobion! But they will go to them
next, depend upon it!"
"I hopo they will," I said, witb a world
of gloomy insinuation in my words. "But
I doubt it!"
And this time my hint was not wasted.
The landlord changed color. "What are
you driving at, master?" he asked mildly,
while the others looked at me in silence
and waited for more.
"What If there bo one across the road
now?" I said, giving way to the tempta
tion and speaking falsely for which I
paid dearly afterward. "A purveyor, I
mean, unless I am mistaken in him, or he
tells lies. He has come straight from the
chancellor, white wand, warrant and all.
He is taking" his dinner now, bnt he has
sent for tho hundredman, so I guess ho
"For the hundredman?" repeated the
landlord, his brows meeting.
"Yes, unless I am mistaken."
There was silence for a moment. Then
the man they called Tom Miller dashed
his cap on the floor, and folding his arms
defiantly looked round on his neighbors.
"He has come, has he!" he roared, his face
swollen, his eyes bloodshot. "Then I will
be as good as my word! Who will help?
Shall we sit down and be shcrn like sheep,
as we were before, so that our children lay
on the bare stones, and wo pulled the
plow ourselves? Or shall we show that we
are free Englishmen and not slaves of
Frenchmen? Shall we teach Master Pur
veyor not to trouble us again? Now, what
say you, neighbors?"
So fierce a growl of impatience and fin
ger rose round me as at once answered the
question. A dozen red faces glares at me
and at one another, and from tie very mo
tion and passion of the men as they snarled
and threatened the room seemed twice as
full as it was. Their oaths and cries of
encouragement, not loud, but the more
dangerous for that, the fresh burst of fury
which rofce as the village smith and an
other came In ,1 learned the news, the
menacing gostutdiof a score of brandished
fists these sights, though they told of the
very effect at which I had aimed, scared
as well as pleased me. I turned red and
white and hesitated, fearing that I had
gone too far.
The thing was done, however, and, what
was more, I had soon to take care of my
self. At the very moment when the hub
bub was ct its loudest I felt a chill run
down my back as I met the monk's eye,
and, reading in it whimsical admiration,
read in it something besides, and that
was an unmistakable menace. "Clever
lad!" the eye said. "I will expose yon,"
I had forgotten him or, at any rate,
that my acting would be transparent
enough to him holding tho clew in his
hand and his look was like the shock of
cold water to xoe. But it is wonderful
how keen the wits grow on the grindstone
of necessity. With scarcely a second's
hesitation I drew out my only piece of
gold, and unnoticed by the other men,
who were busy swearing at and encourag
ing one another, I disclosad a morsel of it.
The monk's ciafty eyes glistened. I laid
my finger on my lips.
He held np two fingers.
I shook my head and showed an empty
palm. I had no more. He nodded, and
the relief that bou gave me was great.
Before I had time, however, to consider
the narrowness of my escape a movement
of the crowd for the news had spread with
strange swiftness, and there waa sow
crowd assembled which more than filled
the room proclaimed that the purveyor
had come out and was In the street.
The room was nearly emptied at a rush.
Tbongb I prudently remained behind, I
could, through the open window, hear as
well as see what passed. The leadins
spirits had naturally struggled out first
and were gathered, sullen and full of dan
gerous possibilities, about the porch.
I suppose the bishop's messenger saw is
them nothing but a crowd of country
clowns, for he came hectoring toward the
door, smiting bis boot with his Whip and
pumng ont bis red cheeks, mightily. He
felt brave enough, now that be had dined
and had at his back three stout constables
sworn to keep the queen's peace.
"Make Way! Make way there I Do you
hear?" he cried in a husky, pompous
voice. "Mako way!" he repeated, lightly
touching the nearest man with bis switch.
"I am on the queen's service, boobies, and
must not be hindered."
The man swore at him, but did not
budge, and the bully, brought up thus
sharply, awoke to tho lowering faces and
threatening looks which confronted him.
He changed colors little. But the ale
was still in him, and forgetting his nat
ural discretion no thought to carry mat
ters with a high hand. "Come, come," ha
exejaimed angrily. "I have a warrant,
and you resist me at your peril. I have to
enter this house. Clear the way, Master
Hundredman, and break these fellows
heads if they withstand yon."
A growl as of a dozen bulldogs answer
ed him, and ho drew back as a child might
who has trodden on an adder. "You
fools!" ho spluttered, glaring at them
viciously. "Aro you mad? Do you know
what you aro doing? Do you see this?"
He whipped out from some pocket a short
whito stall and brandished it. "I come di
rect from tho lord chancellor and upon his
business. Do you hear? And if you resist
mo it i3 treason. Treason, you dogs!" he
cried, bis rage getting the better of him,
"and like dogs you will hang for it. Mas
ter 'Hundredman, I order you to take la
your constables and arrest that man!"
"What man?" quoth Tom Miller, ey
ing him fixedly.
"The stranger who came in an hour ago
and Is insldo tho house."
"Him. ho means, who told about the
purveyor across tho road," explained the
monk, with a wink.
That wink sufficed. There was a roar
of execration, and in tho twinkling of an
eye the Jack In office, tripped up this way
and shoved that, was struggling helpless
ly in the grasp of half a dozen men, who
fought savagely for his body with the
hundredman and tho constables.
"To the river! To the Ouse with h!m!"
yelled tho mob. ''In tho queen's name!"
shouted tho officers. But these were to
those as three to a score and taken by sur
prise besides end doubtful of the rights of
tho matter. Yet, for an instant, as the
crowd went reeling and fighting down the
road, they prevailed, the constables man
aged to drag their leader free, and I caught
a glimpso of him, wild eyed and frantic
with fear, his clothes torn from his back,
standing at bny like some animal and
brandishing his staff in one hand, a packet
of letters in the other.
"I have letters, letters of state!" he
screamed shrilly. "Let mo alone, I tell
you! Let me go, you curs!"
But In vain. 1 ho next instant the mob
wcro upon him again. The packet of let
ters went one way, the staff was dashed
another. He was thrown down and plucked
up again and hurried, bruised and strug
gling, toward the river, 'his screams for
mercy and furious threats rising shrilly
above the oaths and laughter.
I felt myself growing pale as scream
followed scream. '.'They will kill him!"
I exclaimed, trembling, and prepared to
follow. "I cannot see this dune."
But the monk, who had returned to my
side, grasped my arm. "Don't be a fool,"
he said sharply. "I will answer for it,
they will not kill him Tom Miller is not
a fool, though he Is angry. He will duck
him and let him go. But I will trouble
you for that bit of gold, young gentle
man." I gave it to him.
''Sow," he continued, with a leer, "I
will give you a hint in return. If you are
wise, yon will be out of this county in 13
hours. Tetherca to the gate over there is
a good horse, which belongs to a certain
purveyor now in the river. Take it! There
is no ono to say you nay. And begone!"
I looked hard at him for a minute, my
heart beating fast. This was horse steal
ing, and horse stealing was a hanging
matter. But I had done so much already
that I felt I might as well be hanged for a
sheep as for a lamb. I was not sure that
I had not incited to treason, and what
was stealing a horse beside that? "1 will
do it," I said desperately.
"Don't lose time, then," quoth my
I went ont then and there and found he
had told the truth. Every soul In the
place had gone to seethe ducking, and the
street was empty. Kinked aside in the
roadway lay the bundle of letters, soiled,
but not torn, and in the gutter was the
staff. I stooped and picked up one and
the other In for a iamb, in for a sheep,
and they might be useful some day. Then
I jumped Into tho saddle and twitched the
reins off the hook.
But before I could drive in the spnrs a
hand fell on the bridle, and the monk's
face appeared at my knee. " Weill ' I said,
glaring down at him. I was burning to
"That is a good cloak you have cot
there," ho muttered hurriedly. "There,
strapped to the saddle, you fool! You do
not want that. Give it me. Do you hear?
Quick, give It me!" he cried, raising his
voice and clutching at it fiercely, his face
dark with greed and fear.
"I see," I replied as I unstrapped it.
"I am to steal the horse that you may get
the cloak. And then you will lay the lot
on my shoulders. Well, take it!" I cried,
"and go your way as fast as you can."
Throwing it at him as hard as I could,
I shook up the reins and went off down
tho road at a gallop. The wind whistled
pleasantly past my ears. The sounds of
the town grew faint and distant. Each
bound of the good hack carried me farther
and farther from present danger, farther
and farther from the old life. In the ex
hilaration and excitement of the moment
I forgot my condition, forgot that I bad
not a penny piece in my pocket, and that
I had left aa unpaid bill behind me, for
got even that I rod a well, a borrowed
