I went out late in the evening to ques
tion each of the omnibus driver, but
in vain. Whether thpy were too busy
to give aie proper attention, or too anx
ious to join the stir and mirth of the
townspeople, they all declared they knew
nothing of any Englishwoman. As I re
turned dejectedly to my iun, I heard a
lamentable voice, evidently English, be
moaning In doubtful French. The omni
bus from Faluise had just come in, and
under the lamp in the entrance of the
archway stood a lady before my hostess,
who was volubly asserting that there
was no room left in her house. I hasten
ed to the assistance of my countrywom
an, and the light of the lamp falling up
on her face revealed to me who she was.
"Mrs. Fosterl" I exclaimed, almost
shouting her name in my astonishnunt.
She looked ready to faint with fatigue
and dismay, and she laid her hand heav
ily on my arm, as if to save herself from
sinking to the ground.
"Have you found her?" she asked, in
voluntarily. "Not a trace of her," I answered.
Mrs. Foster broke into an hysterical
laugh, which was very quickly followed
by sobs. I had no great difficulty in per
suading the landlady to find some accom
modation for her, and then I retired to
my own room to turn over the extraordi
nary meeting which had been the last
incident of the day.
It required very little keenness to come
to the conclusion that the Fosters had
obtained their information concerning
Miss Ellen Martineau where we had got
ours, from Mrs. Wilkinson; also that Mrs.
Foster had lost no time in following up
the clue, fur she was only twenty-four
hours behind nie. She had looked thor
oughly astonished and dismayed when
she saw me there; so she had had no
Idea that I was on the same track. But
nothing could be more convincing than
this journey of hers that neither she nor
Foster really believed in Olivia's death.
That was as clear as day. But what ex
planation could I give to myself of those
letters, of Olivia's above all? Was it
possible that she had caused them to be
written, and sent to her husband? 1
could not even admit such a question
without a sharp sense of disappointment
I saw Mrs. Foster early in the morn
ing, somewhat as a truce-bearer may meet
another on neutral ground. She was
grateful to me for my interposition in her
behalf the night before; and as I knew
Ellen Martiueuu to be safely out of the
way, I was inclined to be tolerant to
wards her. I assured her, upon my hon
or, that I had failed in discovering any
trace of Olivia in Noireau, and I to.d
her all I hud learned about the bank
ruptcy of Monsieur I'errier, and the scat
tering of the school.
"But why should you undertake such a
chase?" I asked; "if you and Foster are
satisfied that Olivia is dead, why should
you be running after Ellen Martineau?
You show nie the papers which seem to
prove her death, and now I find you in
this remote part of Normandy, evidently
In pursuit of her. What does this mean?"
"You are doing the same thing your
self," she answered.
"Yes," I replied, "because I am not
satisfied. But you have proved your
conviction by becoming Uichard Foster s
"That is tlie very point," she said,
shedding a few tears; "as soon as ever
Mrs. Wilkinson described Ellen Mani
neau to me, when she wus talking about
her visitor who had come to inquire af
ter her, I grew quite frightened lest he
should ever be charged with marrying
me whilst she was alive. So I persuad
ed him to let me come here and make
sure of it, though the journey cost a
great deal, and we have very little
money to spare. We did not know what
tricks Olivia might do, and it made tne
very miserable to think she might be still
alive, and I in her place."
I could not but acknowledge to myself
that there was some reason in Mrs. Fos
ter's statement of the case.
"There is not the slightest chance of
your finding her," I remarked.
"Isn't there?" she asked, with an evil
gleam in her eyes, which I just caught
before she hid her face again in her hand
kerchief. "At any rate," I said, "you would have
no power over her if you found her. You
could not take her back with you by
force. I do not know how the French
laws would regard Foster's authority, but
you can have none whatever, and lie is
quite unfit to take this long journey to
claim her. Ueally I do not see what you
can do; and I should think your wisest
plan would be to go. back and take care
of him, leaving her alone. I am here to
protect her, and I shall stay until I see
you fairly out of the place."
I kept no very strict watch over her
during the day, for I felt sure she would
find no trace of Olivia in Noireau, At
night I saw her again. She was worn
out and despondent, and declared her
self quite ready to return to Falaise by
the omnibus at five o'clock in the morn
ing. I saw her off, and gave the driver
a fee to bring me word for what town she
took her ticket at the railway station.
When he returned in the evening he told
me he had himself bought her one for
Iloufleur, and started her fairly on her
As for myself I had spent the day in
making inquiries at the offices of the local
custom houses which stand at every en
trance into a town or village in France,
for the gathering of trifling, vexatious
taxes upon articles of food and merchan
dise. At one of these I had learned that,
three or four weeks ago a young Eng
lishwoman with a little girl had passed
by on foot, each carrying a small bundle,
which had not been examined. It was
on the road to Granville, which was be
tween thirty and forty miles away. From
Granville, was the nearest route to the
Channel Islands. Was it not possible
that Olivia had resolved to seek refuge
there again? Perhaps to seek met My
heart, bowed down by the sad picture of
her and the little child leaving the town
on foot, beat high again at the thought
f OUtU in Guernsey.
HI I I I I II fl I I Hfl H m !
At Granville I learned that a young
lady and a child had made the voyage to
Jersey a short time before, and 1 went
on with stroager hope. But in Jersey
I could obtain no further information
about her; nor in Guernsey, whither I
felt sure Olivia would certainly have pro
ceeded. I took one day more to cross
over to Sark, and consult Tardif; but he
knew no more than I did. He absoitely
refused to beliere that Olivia was dead.
"In August," he said, "I shall hear
from her. Take courage and com.ort.
She promised it, and she will keep her
promise. If she had known herself to
be dying she would certainly have sent
"It is a long time to wait," I said, with
an ntter sinking of spirit.
"It is a long time to waitT' he echoed,
lifting up his hands, and letting them
full again with a gesture of weariness;
"but we must wait and hope."
To wait in impatience, and to hope at
times, and despair at times, I returned
One of my first proceedings, after my
return, was to ascertain how the Eng
lish law stood with regard to Olivia's
position. Fortunately for me, one of Lr.
Senior's oldest friends was a lawyer of
great repute, and he discussed the ques
tion with me after a dinner at his house
"There seems to be no proof of any kind
against the husband," he said, after I
had told him all.
"Why!" I exclaimed, "here you have a
girl, brought up in luxury and wealth,
willing to brave any poverty rather than
continue to live with him."
"A girl's whim," he said.
"Then Foster could compel her to re
turn to him?" I asked.
"As far as I see into the case, he cer
tainly could," 1 was the answer, which
drove me frantic.
"But there is this second marriage," I
"There lies the kernel of the case," he
said. "You tell me there are papers,
which you believe to be forgeries, pur
porting to be the medical certificate with
corroborative proof of her death. Now,
if the wife be guilty of framing these,
the husband will bring them against her
as the grounds on which he felt free to
contract his second marriage. She has
done a very foolish and a very wicked
"You think she did it?" I asked.
lie smiled significantly, but without
"But what can be done now?" I asked.
"All you can do," he answered, "is to
establish your influence over this fellow
and go cautiously to work with him. As
long as the lady is in France, if she be
alive, and he is too ill to go after her, she
is safe. You may convince him by de
grees that it is to his interest to come to
some terms with her. A formal deed of
separation might, be agreed upon, and
drawn up; but even that will not perfect
ly secure her in the future."
I was compelled to remain satisfied
with this opinion. Yet how could I be
satisfied, whilst Olivia, if she was still
living, was wandering about homeless,
and, as I feared, destitute, in a foreign
I made my first call upon Foster the
next evening. Mrs. Foster had been to
Brook street every day since her re
turn, to inquire for me, and to leave an
urgent messuge that I should go to Bell
ringer street as soon as I was again in
tov.n. The lodging house looked almost
as wretched as the forsaken dwelling
down at Noireau, where Olivia had per
haps been living; aud the stilling, musty
air inside it almost made me gasp fur
"So you are come back!" was Foster's
greeting, as Ientered the dingy room.
"Yes," I replied.
"I need not ask what success you've
had," he said, sneering. " 'Why so pale
and wan, fond lover?' Your trip has not
agreed with you, that is plain enough.
It did not agree with Carry, either, for
she came back swearing she would never
go on such a wild-goose chase again. You
know 1 was quite opposed to her goins?"
"No," I said incredulously. The dia
mond ring had disappeared from his fin
ger, and it was easy to guess how the
funds had been raised for the journey.
"Altogether opposed," he repeated. "I
believe Olivia is dead. I am quite sure
she has never been under this roof with
me, as Miss Ellen Martineau has betn.
I should have known it as surely as ever
a tiger scented its prey. Do you suppose
I have no sense keen enough to tell nie
she was in the very house where I was?"
"Nonsense!" I answered. His eyes glis
tened cruelly, and made me almost ready
to spring upon him. I could have seized
him by the throat and shaken him to
death, in my sudden passion of loathing
against him; but I sat quiet, and ejacu
lated "Nonsense!" Such power has the
spirit of the nineteenth century among
"Olivia is dead," he said, in a solemn
tone. "I am convinced of that from
another reason; through all the misery
of our marriage, I never knew her guilty
of an untruth, not the smallest. She was
as true as the gospel. Do you think
you or Carry could make me believe that
she would trifle with such an awful sub
ject as her own .death? No. I would
take my oath that Olivia would never
have had that letter sent, or written to
me those few lines of farewell, but to
let me know that she was dead."
There was no doubt whatever that he
was suffering from the same disease as
that which had been the death of my
mother a disease almost invariably fa
tal, sooner or later. A few cases of cure,
under most favorable circumstances, had
been reported during the last half cen
tury; but the chances were dead against
Foster's recovery. In all probability, a
long and painful illness, terminating in
inevitable death, lay before him. In the
opinion of my two senior physicians, all
that I could do would be to alleviate the
worst pangs of It.
His case haunted tne day and Bight.
In that deep undercurrent of coasclout
nesa which larks beneath oat Mrface
sensations and impressions, there was al
ways present the image of Foster, with
his pale, cynical face and pitiless eyes.
With this was the perpetual remem
brance that a subtle malady, beyond the
reach of our skill, was slowly eating away
his life. The man I abhorred; but the
sufferer, mysteriously linked with the
memories which clung about my mother,
aroused, my most urgent, instinctive com
passion. Only once before had I watched
the conflict between disease and its rem
edy, with so intense an interest.
It was a day or two after a consulta
tion that I came accidentally upon the
little note book which I had kept in
Guernsey a private note book, accessi
ble only to myself. It was night; Jack,
as nsual, was gone out, and, I wasalone.
I turned over the leaves merely for list
less want of occupation. All at once I
came upon an entry, made in connection
with my mother's illness, which recalled
to me the discovery I believed 'I had
made of a remedy for her disease, had it
only been applied in, its earlier stages.
It had slipped out of my mind, hut now
my memory leaped upon it with irresisti
I must tell the whole truth, however
terrible and humiliating it may bo.
Whether I had been true or false to my
self up to that moment I cannot say. I
had, taken upon myself the care and, if
possihle,vtha curevof this man, who was
my enemy, if I had an enemy in the
world. His life and mine could not run
parallel without great griefand hurt to
me, and to one dearer than myself: Now,
that a better chance was thrust upon me
in his favor, I shrank from seizing it with
unutterable reluctance. I turned heart
sick at the thought of it.
Yes, I wished him to die. Conscience
flashed the answer across the inner
depths of my soul, as a glare of lightning
over the sharp crags and cruel waves of
our island in a midnight storm. I saw
with terrible distinctness that there had
been lurking within a sure sense of satis
faction in the certainty that he must die.
I took up my note book, and went away
to my room, lest Jack should come in sud
denly and read my secret on my face. I
thrust the book into a drawer in my
desk, and locked it away, out of my
It seemed cruel that this power should
come to mo from my mother's death. If
she were living still, or if she had died
from any other cause, the discovery of
this remedy would never have been made
by me. And I was to take it as a sort
of miraculous gift, purchased by her
pangs, and bestow it upon the only man
I hated. For I hated him; I said so to
But it could not rest at that. I fought
a battle with myself all through the quiet
night, motionless and in silence, lest Jack
should become aware that I was not
sleeping. How should I ever face him,
or grasp his hearty hand again, with such
a secret weight upon my soul? Yet how
could I resolve to save Foster at the cost
of dooming Olivia to a lifelong bondage
should he discover'where she was, or to
lifelong poverty should she remain con
cealed? If I were only sure that she
was alive! It was for her sake merely
that I hesitated.
The morning dawned before I could de
cide. The decision, when made, brought
no feeling of relief or triumph to me.
As soon as It was probable that Dr.
Senior could see me, I was at his house
at Fulham; and in rapid, almost incoher
ent words laid what I believed to be my
important discovery before him. He sat
thinking for some time, running over In
his own mind such cases as had come
under his own observation. After a
while a gleam of pleasure passed over
his face, and his eyes brightened as he
looked at me.
"I congratulate you, Martin," he said,
"though I wish Jack had hit upon this.
I believe it will proVe a real benefit to
our science. Let me turn it over a little
longer, and consult some of my, col
leagues about It. But I think you are
right. You are about to try it on poor
"Yes," I answered, with a chilly sensa
tion in my veins.
"It can do him no' harm," he said, "and
in my opinion it will prolong his life to
old age, if he is careful of himself, I
will write a paper on the subject for the
Lancet, if you will allow me."
"With ail my heart," I said sadly.
The old physician regarded me for a
minute with his keen eyes, which had
looked through the window of disease
into many a human soul. I shrank from
the scrutiny, but I need not have done
so. He grasped my hand firmly and
"God bless you, Martin!" he said, "God
I went straight from Fulham to Bell
ringer street. A healthy impulse to ful
fill all my duty, however difficult, was in
its first fervid moment of action. Nev
ertheless there was a subtle hope within
me founded upon one chance that was
left it was just possible that Foster
might refuse to be made the subject of
an experiment; for an experiment it was.
I sat down beside him, and told him
what I believed to be his chance of life;
not concealing from him that I proposed
to try. If he gave his consent, a mode of
treatment which bad never been practic
ed before. His eye, keen and sharp as
that of a lynx, seemed to read my
thoughts as Dr. Senior's had done.
"Martin Dobree," he said, in a voice so
different from his ordinary caustic tone
that It almost startled me, "I can trust
you. I put myself with implicit confi
dence into your hands."
The last chance dare I say the last
hope? was gone. I stood pledged on my
honor as a physician, to. employ this dis
covery, which had been laid open to me
by my mother's fatal illness, for the ben
efit of the man whose life was most
harmful to Olivia and myself. 1 I felt
suffocated, stifled. I opened the win
dow for a minute or two, and leaned
through it to catch the fresh breath of
the outer air.
'"I must tell you," I said, when I drew
my head in again, "that you must not
expect to regain your health and strength
so completely as to be able to return to
your old dissipations. But if you are
careful of yourself you may live to sixty
"Life at any price!" he answered.
"There would be more chance for you
now," I said, "if you could have better
air than this."
"How can IT he asked.
"Be frank with me," I answered, "and
tell me what your means are. It would
be worth your while to spend your last
farthing upon this chance."
"Is it not enough to make a man mad,"
he said, "to know there are thousands
lying in the bank in his wife's name, and
ha cannot touch a penny of it? It k Ufa
Itself to me; yet I msy Ate like a dog hi
this hole for the want of It. My death
will lie at Olivia's door, curse her!"
, He fell back upon his pillows, with a
groan as heavy and deep as ever came
from the heart of a wretch perishing from
sheer want I could not choose but feel
some pity for him; but this was an op
portunity I must not miss.
""t is of no use to curse her," I said;
"come, Foster, let us talk over this mat
ter quietly and reasonably. If Olivia b
alive, as I cannot help hoping she is,
your wisest course would be to come to
some mutual agreement, which would
release you both from your present diffi
culties; for you must recollect she is as
penniless as yourself. Let me speak to
you as If I were her brother. Of this
one thing you may be quite certain, she
will never consent to return to you; ami
in that I will aid her to the utmost of my
power. But there is no reason why you
should not have a good share of the prop
erty, which she would gladly relinquish
on condition that you left her alone."

INGENIOUS INSTRUMENT TOR,
The division of soils of the United
States Department of Agriculture has
Just described a new Instrument now
in use for Investigating the properties
of soils. This Is a great time and labor
saving apparatus, giving accurate and
reliable results, which otherwise would
require months to obtain.
The physical properties of soils are
recognized by plant physiologists to be
of the greatest importance in plant
economy. Even In the consideration of
climatic conditions It Is now generally
considered that for most plants the con
ditions of the soil bold equal rank with
atmospheric conditions. A high tem
perature in the soli under favorable
conditions promotes extensive root de
velopment; a high atmospheric temper
ature under equally favorable condi
tions favors a heavy growth of foliage.
A' deficiency In water of either air or
soil is attended with distress.
The new apparatus as devised by the
division of soil is an electric affair. It
registers a half-dozen or more various
soil properties. This method depends
upon the principle that the resistance
offered to the passage of an electric
current from one carbon plate to an
other burled In the soil depends upon
the amount of moisture present be
tween the carbon plates or electrodes.
This resistance is measured.
The Illustration shows the Instrument
as used In the field, with the carbon
electrodes and temperature cells In

perature cells may be buried In the soil
