. Upon arriving at tho house of Nita,
Monteri and bis companion questioned
her closely about tho oscapo of hor
(prisoner, and after hearinv. from her
own lips all she had before '.-y ritten to
him, thoy decided to lose no time in
tracing the missing girl, lest ?ho should

he met couoorniug tho girl, but no
one seemod to have scon such a person
as ho described.
i But it scorns that at times fortune is
wont to favor tho wicked; for, after
two day?' search, Carlos Monteri
learned that a girl had boon found in
an unconscious condition, and was a*,
that time lyiug ill in tho gipsy camp.
This ho learned from a younger mem
ber of the tribe, who, upon inquiry,
told all ho know of the rescue of the
girl and of hor personal appearance.
He thon found tbo man Jock, who
related the circumstance, and told him
that she was his wife, who had escaped,
and that she was a hopeloss lunatic,
although not violent. Accordingly,
the following morning. Monteri drove
to tho camp in company with Inez,
aud, as wo have already learned, took
the delirious girl away with him, not
withstanding the protest of the gipsy
that sho was in uo condition to bo
And thus Ureta Danton again fell
\nto tho power of her enemies, but not
beforo she had unconsciously won tbo
heart of ono who had vowod to search
for and fiud her, feeling within him
that she needed a friend and protector.
Monteri decided to take the girl
somewhere near Ravonsmere, where
be could watch over her. He did not
intend to trust Nita a second time.
As the train boro them on their
journey to Ravonsmere, Inez, whoso
mind had boon busy thinking, turned
to her companion, who supported tho
siok girl, and said, in a low tone:
"Ah, Carlos, I have it! You know
the old deserted house half-way be
tween tbo station and Ravonsmere?"
"Yes, I remember 1 saw it," he re
"It is tho very place for you to take

Cecil Doniphau say so only a few days
"Very well. Where cau I get the
'key?" he asked.
"You do not need a key. You eau
easily effect au entrance from the back
part of the* house; besides, it would
hardly do Tor you to waste time in hunt
ing up the owner, for I don't believe
he is nromul bore at present. No one
ever goes near tho place, so you need
have no fear ef being discovered."
"All right. This your plan. If it

"I haxono fear of failure now tint I

dow to conceal from him the look of
malignant hatred which sho could not
prevent from shining from her eyes.
To herself she was saying:
"Threaton mo as much as you please,
Carlos Monteri, but my timo will come;
and when it doos, beware! We shall

As tho tram came to a pause, the de
lirious girl had somewhat revived from
the stupor to which tho drug adminis
tered by Monteri had reduced her.
And when, leaving tho oar, Carlos took
her arm, he bad little difficulty in guid

from sheer weakneos.

Tho old house, which ho intended

ran up the veranda steps, and fell
back iu well-feigned surprise when he
saw his cousin seated beside his uncle.
"Why, cousin mine, what brought

"Oh, I got homesick! r have got

"Certainly. You may be sure I

she returned sarcastically.
"You're right. My common souse
should have told me that," he said,
with a laugh that wns half n chuckle,
while a peculiar gleam shot from hi..'
"Did you have a good day's sport,
Cecil?" askod his uncle.
'? ./'Yes, very good, indeed. I'm glad
that I took your advice and wont gun
ning, for I was verily getting the
blues," replied ho.
As he passed up'to his room to
chaugo his clothes, a malicious chuckle
left his lips.
"Aha! My pretty cousin, T was not
far wrong when I thought you had an
object in walking two milosout of your
path! If you had not, you would not
have said that you came by the direct
road. Now what was your object? 1
intend to watch you, my dear. That
hurried journey was not taken for
nothing, and as for your visiting
Breutwood Park, I dou't believe it.
However, that is an easy matter to timl
out. If I can Qud out anything about
you that will turn my uncle against
you, be sure I'll not spare the time
nor energy that may bo required to
reach that end. Ravensmere is a fine
estate, aud I do not intend that it
shall slip through my lingers without
an effort on my part. I've felt that
the girl is not all that she pretends to
bo, and if I succeed iu turning ray
uncle ngainst her, I'll not have labored
in vain. I must keep my eyes open,
and if auy more such trips are taken,
I'll know your destination, or my

watched him out of sight.

f'ho sad story comes from tho coast
of Manic that the lobster crop is a
failure that an industry which was
onco as steady as tho ice harvest in
winter or the summer granite crop is
now OU its lust claws states tho New
York World, and that tho Maine lob
ster is destined to go into extinction
with tho dodo, the great auk and tho
American bison. The lobster's ob
jection to living is based not BO much
on tho injury to his foeliogs caused
by the cruelty of the restaurants in
announcing "broiled live lobster" ns
by the precipitate haste of the Maine
fishermen in catching him before ho
iH lit to be broiled at all, nnd sub
jecting him to the humiliation of
"canning." If his foldings were re
rjpeoted lie would continue to furnish
gustatory delight to tho gourmand ill
limitless numbers for countless years.
