But, as it was, while
still foolishly be
lieving in tbe other's

he merely refused to
exhibit the paper on
general principles
of precaution.
W th Boncourt,
however, tho case
.was wholly differ
ent. Ho had recog-
sized from the first that his interests,
and taoee of his visitor, had suddenly be
oomo directly antagonistic and, before
the present interview had lasted live liiin
utes, he had secretly determined that the
coveted document should pass from Jas
per's into his own possession, by fair
means or foul, before thai interview
should end.
"You cannot surely doubt toy honesty,
Vtfasper?" continued Boneourt, with liis
hand still half-playfully extended. "Re
v-member how. you confided to me the
knowledge of this paper's existence, away
off yonder in the San Francisco hospital,
BO many years ago."
"True and you were kind to mo then.
.. But—but I cannot do what you aBk."
A look that was not good to see came
for an instant into the adventurer's face,
but it was almost instantly replaced by
the former good-natured expression.
"You say I was once kind to you," he
persisted, skillfully throwing a tinge of
emotion into his soft viioe. "How mag
•s nanimouBly you are repaying me now!"
"But what can you possibly want (o see
the writing for?" exclaimed Josper, puz
zled and softening.
"I will tell you. Jasper." An^ Boncourt

Jasper promised to do so, and then
took his dopartnre.
It was a late hour, but, nevertheless,
Boncourt was no sooner alone then he
looked out into the hall-way, and called
up the darkened stairs.
"Adole!"ho c^JUd.
Ho was responded to. Then thero was
a-rustling on the stairs, and Adelo entered
the room, looking somewhat palo, but
very lovely in the negligo oC half-bound
tresses and a rich dressing-robe.
"Havo I disturbed you? a*ked Adele's
brother, with a gentleness that was now,
at lo.iBt. all genuine. "If so, I must crave
partfon, and doi'er what I was going to
"No," she replied, sinking into a
foutouil. "Jly headache left mo with a
norvousness that kept mo from sleeping.
I have long been lying awake, wondering
as to tho rosult of your anticipated intor
viow with that toturned wandorer."
"It has resulted miserably—just in
nothing at all!" said ho, poovis'hly.
He had baforo this given her a'running
account of the dinner at Marlowe's,- and'
ho now recounted succinctly tho features
of tho interview that had just onded.
"This is most unfortunate," said Adelo,
when ho had finished. "However, I am
perfectly sure of Nool, comb what may,
and the banker must still imagine the
tell-tale document in your'- possession,
which is all the same thing."
"Not exactly," said Boncourt, uneasily.
"You speak of taking into your sorvice
That odd little lad who wus hero this
morning," said Adele," after a pause.
"What is yeur object in that?"
"Chiefly to oblige yon, my dear. Ho is
represented as suoh a prodigy of alert
ness, and all that, as to make me think ho
may bo of service in sundry ways—espe
cially London. This would enable me
to disembarrass myself of that Itolling
stone, whom you BO detest."
"And with reason but this forethought
in my behalf is vory kind of you, Al
phonse. That fellow's want of spirit
and deconoy in venturing- to attach him-
Be'.f to you, hero in England, still
amazes mo."
"Drink and continued hard luck can
debase a weak man wonderfully, Adele.
But no moro of him I shall speedily
dispense .with him. Now about that
missing paper, I must get hold of it be
fore JaBper, and ho, undoubtedly, has
also tracked its whereabouts. You muy
be able to aid me materially in this quest,
"I? Why, where is it hidden?"
"In Noel Marlowe's insido breast
pocket, I have now not the slightest
doubt," he replied, with eagerness. And
then, after setting before her his imag
inary picture of the banker's oflice at the
time of Noel's entrance on tho heels of
tho attempted murder, he added:
"Don't you see that tho young man may
have picked up tho piece of. writing inad
vertently? He doubtlessly inclosed it
unawares in tho newspaper ho was cook
ing, and put them both together in his
pocket. You afterward decidod capri
cioiously not to listen to the extract he
was desirous of reading otherwise the
prscious document must at once have
come to light."
Adele slightly yawned.
"Dreadful responsibility! Woman's
caprice^ as usual, she murmured. "Well,
Alphonso, what does it all amount to? If
Nool really pocketed the instrument of
his own father's ruin, in accordance with
this theory—which strikes me as laugh
ably absurd—it is probable that it is at
last missing beyond recovery. He mUBt
before this have thrown away tho news
paper and whatever it might have inclosed
as worthless."
"You mistake the probability is that
ho has not:' He has some eccentric habits
for BO young a man. One of soveral that
I have noted is bis custom of carrying
newspapers of no particular significance
for a long time."
"I believe I have remarked it, too, and
wondered at such a commercial habit in
one like Noel," said Adele, indifferently.
"Bnt still I cannot sharo your improssion
that be is still bearing the writing about
with him."
"Jasper Marlowe shares it, at all events,
depend upon it. The recovery of the pa
por is oven moro important io him than
to me. He will dog Noel, like his shad
ow, to get it again into his hands. Ho
must bo forestalled at any cost."
"You exaggerate its importance,
Alphonse, I am Buro. But what would
you havo mo do?"
"Noel, of course, must remain in ig
norance of-posBOssing it.' To call his at
tention to it would entail the risk of his
mastering the contents—of discovering
his own fathor's villainy. That would
upset my plans at once. I rely upon
you, Adelo, to obtain it of him without
exciting his suspicions."
"You, a pretty woman, and to ask that?
Are thero not tender moments when yon
are alone with him—would tho oppor
tunity bo lacking?"
Adele's face flushed indignantly.
"So you think me capable of picking
my lover's pocket, even while in his
arms? Oh, Alphone!"
"Not. that exactly. Pray don't bo
angry, Adole! But might you not ask
him for the newspaper, and then snatch
it from him playfully, with tho remark
that you would read it at your leisure?"
"And perhaps leave the missing docu
ment still in his pocket? It wonld pos
sibly havo become loose, if there at all,
and then tho risk of his reading it would
bo all the greater."
"True that is well taken. But wait I
gee how we'll manage. Day after to
morrow, as you know, I am to entertain
Noel hero, with his friends, Sfpianderall,
Sir Harry Wilding, and some others.
Don't look alarmed it is not the same
party of profligates that you ule to aid
me in trapping a day later in London."
Adele again colored.
"You misinterpreted my gesture—do
you think I don't know that?" sho ex
claimed, with an expression.' _,of shame
flitting aoroas her face. "You know the
absoluteness of my passion for this
youth—how I ^ould die sooner th»u lose
him? And how long would his love, or
even his slightest esteem, survive a
knowledge of my being tho siren of your
London gambling Bchemes—of an infer
ence that I always have been such from
earliest girlhood?"
"Tush, tush! Adele! You have merely
gilded my nets with your beautiful smil^,
no more. Of course, he shall never
know and, after your marriage with him,
I shall no" longer require your association
with my schemes. The more fact of that
marriage will constitute my 'open sesame'
to suoh a treasure-house as will enrich me
indefinitely. But let nie go on. Noel
will be here with these young bloods on
Tuesday. You can secure the news
paper from him before us all, and sign
to me as to whether or not it con
tains the coveted slip of writing within
its folds.
"If not—well, then I shall devise
some means of baying his pockets
searched boforo. ho can, ohaiico upon the
^•^MBhall do just nothing of tho kind,"
said Adele, composedly.
"You surprise me! What—not merely
to ask bim for the newspaper, and then
tantoringly keep it from him?"
"No, It would bo practicing a decep

in a calmer tone. "The child was

"Oiel! When—how—where?"
"It is no matter, sinco, of courso, it

Ah, that stands to roason, indeed!
You traoked her at the time, yon hunted
her down, only to find her ubout to ex

brother, with a roturn of his sympathetic
tone. "I wus a bruto to havo" alluded to
it. Shall I get you a gloss of wine?"
No patience, I shall bo mysolf again
in a moment."
But Boncourt, in spite of his love for
her, was not going to relinquish his origi
nal object. He waited until she had grown
calm, and then raid:
"Adele, it is absolutely necossarv that
you should assist ino in tho way havo

writing that puts'Gilbert Marlowe in my
She shook her hoad.
"But suppose I prove it to bo indispen

"I repeat, you exaggerate its importance
to us, Alphonse. I am already sure of

He- gave a strnnge'laugh, which caused
her to look up unoaBily.
"Whore ignorance iB bliss, 'tis folly

"What do you moan, Alphonse?"
"Simply that you would not bo BO con

"Would I jost with your heiirt?"
"Whom do you mean?"
"The little mademoiselle over yonder
at tho banker's—Miss Alworth. He sat
beside her at dinner, and I was directly
opposite. Why, tho boy had his heart in
his face, and ner indifference cut him to
tho quick?"
"He was even jealous of the old chim
panzee of a lawyer, who is panting to
marry hor, th'oy B.iy. If you had been
there, it might have been difforent, but,
outside of your spell, he palpitated in hor
atmosphere liko a troe-toad in tho sun
shine. Ho iB only a year or two hor
senior. She has beauty and high quali
ties. They have been brought up under
tho same roof."
Adele drew a long breath.
"This is too ridiculous for anything,
Alphonso," said she, with a forced laugh.
"However, I will no longer subject you to
my silly capricos. I will see what can
be done towards obtaining that Bcrap of
paper from Jfoel—that iB, if ho really pos
sesses it."
Boncourt thanked and kissod hor.
"You can manage it in somo way when
tlioy are oil here together on Tuesday,"
saia he, with his suavity fully restored.
"In tho meantime I will myself look nfter
Noel. Who knows but that I might ren

at all events, Jasper must bo forestalled."
CllAl'TKR XVI. fi- ..
Boncourt, howovor, was fated to a dis
Adelo and he wore yet at their breakfast
on tho following morning when tho for
mer received a note from Noel by messen
"This is too bad, Alphonse!" said she,
after reading it.
"What does he say?"
"He rogrots that he cannot be with me
at all to-day, but says he will come to
morrow, with the other guests. That
provoking Sir Harry's cousin or some
one hus broken an arm, and nothing will
do but Nool must rnn out to Tho Beeches

thought it possible that Miss Alworth
was to acoompany him-—"
"Don't bo a fool, Adolo. Fortunately,
my breakfast is finished. I may yet be
able to seo Noel before he gets off."
With bnt littlo coremony Boncourt
quitted tho table and tho house.
Upon'reaching tho Marlowe mansion,
however, it was only to bo informed by
tho coachman that the young master had
driven away in his dog-cart holf an hour
"He went off alone, and in something
of a hurry, I suppose?" said Boncourt,
concealing his chugrin.
"Not in such a great hurry, sir," replied
the man, looking tip tho lone for tho
other had found him at the stables, at tho
rear of whioh thoy wore bolh standing.
"For Master Noel had no sooner reached
the lop of tho lano yonder when ho drew
up to speak to a man on foot—an odd
looking man, and a perfect str.inger, I
bolieve. So there couldn't have been any
great hurry, sir, though the young man
was alone in tho cart and behind our best

An instant later, and, from the coach
man's description, he had not a doabt

His suspicions and alarm took fire like
"It isn't possible that tho man you no
ticed could have accompanied your youne
mastor in the dog-cart? he exclaimed.
"Not probable, but still possible, sir,"
said the coaohman, scratching his head.
"You see, Master Nool is different from
any other young gentleman as I evor saw,
I don't know how he made out with that
particular stranger he was talking to this
morning, for they made the turn yonder,
with the Btranger talking up, and the
young master replying back over the
wheels. But I have known him afore
now to give a lift of ten miles to tho com
monest sort of road-peddler what he'B

But Boncourt waited to hear no moro.
Ho had oome from Jasmine Lodge on
foot, by a short cut back over tho cliffs,
as was hiB custom, and now ho returned
thither as he bad come, though almost on
the run.
"Saddle tho roan, and be quick about
it!" he cnlled out to hiB groom, as he
again approaohed the lodge, whose stable
was closely hdjoiniDg and then, hearing
Adele's voice at the front of tho house,
he hurried in that direction.
"I'm off afer Noel, Adele," he began
saying, as aoon as he had turned into the

"But see hero, Mr. Boncourt, I can't be
engaged to come here, and then submit to

the youth. "I've severed my connection
altogether with my former employer, Mr,
Hob Bontly, at your request, end with tho
primo understanding that I -m to outer

Boncourt stared at bim, while Adolo
began lo laugh,

"Fin older than I look, ina'am, besides
being a free and enlightened citizen of
tho United States of Amorica," said the
little fellow, turning to her, with o.bow.
Madam, I trust to remain your ever
faithful and obodient servant."
Boncourt burst into a laugh.
"All right, my man, consider yourself
in my service from this moment," said
lie and then, calling through tho open
hall to a man-Servant, who was descend
ing the stairs, he addod: "Maurice, this
is Mastor Dipper, who is honceforlli in
my sorvice. Give him a good broakfant,
and thon take him to the village clothier,
and fit him out with a baug-up peppor
and-salt suit. My sister may have some
further instructions concerning him dur
ing my absence."
.Tho newly engaged youth was led
away, apparently much satisfied with h's
opening prospects, and just thon Boil
court's favorite saddle-horse was lod
around tho corner of tho house.
"Will you not chango your- clothes for
riding? asked Adelo, as ber brother
mounted, after a fow words of explana
"No, there is"no time and, fortunately,
I am dressed in gray. By tho wrty,

over the Baddlo-bow, "if van trv to nmuso

She nodded her head, and ho set off at a
rapid pace.
Tho Beeches, as Sir Harvoy Wilding's
so.it was called, was aboutnino mil'esfrom
Highcombe, nnd, though Boncourt had
never as yet visited there, ho chancod to
bo familiar with tho road.
His anxiety, lest Jasper should have
succeeded in anticipating hia designs up
on tho contonts of a certain one of Noel
Marlowo's pockots, was presently re
When about mid-way to The Beeohes,
he encountered a way-far-er who proved
to bo Jaspor Marlowo himself, and who
seemed to bo trudging back 'to High
combe, in a rather dispirited mood.
"Hallo!" said Boncourt, nffoctiug bolh
Burfriso and cordiality. "You seom to
havo been making a long stroll, Jasper."
"Yes, Mr. Boncourt, and I moreover
had a jaunt in a dog-c it, at the invita
tion of just the ploar-nnteBt and most
democratic young outleman I over saw
on this side o£ the water," said Jaspe.r, in
a despondent tono.
Boncourt eyed him liko an eagle. If
that scrutiny had caused him to suspect
that this man had anticipated him, and
was even then in possession of the covet
ed document, his action as well as his
glance would, doubtless, have simulated
that of tho same rapacious and falsoly
emblematic bird of prey.
The inventor of gaslights is said to
have been a Frenchman, Philippe Le

Acquisitions of Importance.
The department of Greek and Itoman
antiquities at tho British museum has re
cently received several acquisitions of im
portance. Among'them is a fine seal of
banded agate in the form of a soarab set in
gold, with a silver hoop fitting it for a
ring. "It is described as a vory choice
specimen and was found in Cyprus. Its
date is about 520 B. C. It represents,
neirly in profile nnd at full length, with
tho characteristic disproportions of tho
period to which it bolongs, Athene, clad
in semi-transparent robes, both wings,
of an extremely early type, being ex
tended behind the figure. Tho goddess,
who holds a spoar, wears a helmet with a
prodigious crest. Apart from its technical
merits the extreme historical interest of
this relic will be manifest to students of
Euripides who romtmber that tho turning
point of the plot of the 'Ion' is concerned
with tho blood of tho slain Gorgon. Over
the shoulder of the goddess the head of
Medusa is seen dropping blood, clots of
which fall f~"m it behind tho figure and

A case where Greek met Greek is record
ed by tho Camden (Me.) Herald. In tho
early days of that town a doctor had occa
sion to go to law and employed a neigh
bor, a lawyer, t^ take charge of his case.
Somehow the case nover gat ahead any.
At the clo&e of each term of court tho doc
tor would ask tho lawyer how it was pro
gressing, only to receive the answer: "It is
continued the other side got it continued."
the costs also continuod—to increase—
tho doctor got uneasy, but bided his time.
In the course of years tho lawyer called in
tho doctor to cure a sore finger, which
failed to heal and remained a source of an
noyance. At last the lawyer, while away
from home, called in another doctor, who
happoued to hit the case just right, and
when ho returned homo his finger was well.
soon as ho saw liis old client, the doctor,
he told him what tho other doctor had doho
for him, winding up with tho question
"Doctor, why didn't you cure my linger as
quick aB this other doctor?" The old phy
sioian, with a merry twinkle in his oye,
stuttered a prompt reply: "G-G-Gad,

5 -j The Musical Tree. iv
A foreign traveler tells of seeing a mu
sical tree in tho West India islands and in
Nubia. It hns a peculiar shaped loaf and
pods with a split or open ^dgo. The wind
passing through those gives out the sound
which gives the tree its peculiar name. Ia
Barbadoes there is a valley filled with these
trees, and when the wind blows acroBB the
island a constant moaning, deop-toned
whistlo is heard from it, which in the still
hours of the night has a very weird and
unpleasant' effect. A species of acacia,
whioh grows very abundantly in tho Sou
dan is also called the "whistling tree" by
tho natives. Its shoots are frequently by
the agency of the" ]arvio of insects distorted
in shape and swollen into a globular blad
der from ono to two inches in diameter.
After tbo insect has emerged from a circu
lar hole in tho side of tkis swelling tho
opening played upon by tho wind becomes
a musical instrument equal in sound to a
sweet-toned flute.'

To Recover Sunken Treasure.
A company, it was stated, lately set out
from Sydney to New Zealand lb recover
Bunken treasure from some old wreck on
the west boast Of tho Middle island but so
far no returns havo been published the op

subject of sunken treasure reminds one of
the heaps of gold carried in the galleons of
tho past. In 1769 a ship of war from Lis
bon had on board 9,000,000 of crusade3 in
diamonds and about 100,000 "crowns tur
nois" piastres, makingthe whole2U.050,000
livros turnois. So much for a singlo ship.
In 1774 two Spanish ships from Vera Cruz
and Havana arrived with 23,000,000 crowns,
exclusive of Merchandise valued roundly at
27,000,000 crowns. Such oxatnples could be
multiplied. Of the cargo of un English Iu
diaman in 1771, one item—a diamond in
the rough—was valned at £100,000.
Attacked by WolTes.
As two merchants were returning lately
in a carriage to Bartfeld from the Hungnr
ian-Gaiician frontier they were attacked by
a pack of nine wulvep, tho leader of which
was shot as soon as ho leaped on one of
the carriage horses. The remaining eight,
far from being frightened off furiously
pursued the travelers, who managed to
shoot two moro of tho howling animals.
Just as the horses began to slacken their
pace through loss of blood aud fatigue,
iivo hunters liuve in sight from a neighbor
ing field and quickly dispatched the rest of
tho pursuing pack.
