CHAPTER XXV—Continued.
"And how do you account, then, for
the fact that your keys were found by
me in my open safe door when I re
turned, and my papers gone? How
do you dispose of the fact that you
were seen here by the witnesses I
have spoken of, one of whom, at least,
Is above all doubt?"
"I cannot account for it, sir—unless
I am the victim of witchcraft, or other
people are."
"Tut, tyt! That's rubbish. Come,
Winstanley, I have not been a bad
friend to you, I think. Surely you
can trust me. If there is anything to
•ay that can soften this matter or ex
plain it, for heaven's sake let me hear
It. Don't go on like this."
"I tell you, sir, there is no explana
tion but my solemn word. I would have
found it unforgivable that any one
could suggest such a thing to me if it
were not that there seems some
strange, terrible mistake in the busi
ness. Miss Hamilton says she saw
me. I cannot believe that."
"She told me when I taxed her with
It. She had dropped something to my
wife before that made me fancy it was
so. It is her very reluctance to say
more on the subject that tells most
against you. You muat Jie awdre of
that."
"But she will say tuore, sir. Don't
you see that she can clear up the
whole matter, most probably? She
could never for a moment make a
mistake in my Identity. She can bear
witness that I did not go to your safe."
"I can only trust she may." General
Kenyon spared Winstanley by not
saying it aloud. In his own soul he
had no doubt of the sorrowful, de
graded truth. Winstanley was lying
to him. He had tajten the papers, that
was certain. What he had done with
them would soon disclose Itself when1
some foreign power proclaimed its
possession of the secret that was to
have made England invincible. That
he was a traitor, a thief a villain was
but too clear to the disappointed, sad
dened man who had been his father's
friend and his own.
It was late that afternofin &hen the
general's carriage drove in at the
gates of Government House. Mrs.
Kenyon had gone to fetch Ursula from
Mrs. Fielding'B, where she still was.
fa** When she cam*j Into the room
"where the general and .Capt. Winstan
ley still were she was very pale and
grave, but there was a steady light in
her clear eyes. The general came
forward and led h«jr to a seat. Win
staifley made a step toward her and
then drew back. But Ursula went
straight to him and held out her hand.
He could not but take it, though there
is no knowing, what had been his in-.
tentlon.
Then slie" 'took the chair on the oth
er, side of the fireplace, and loosened
the silver clasp of aer long, warm
cloak.
"Ab^m—Miss Hamilton," General
Kenyon cleared his throat. "I am sor
ry to have to bring you Into a pain
ful business, but you are an important
witness with whom we cannot dis
pense. Will you kindly say if you saw
Captain Winstanley here last night—
ard when and how? Far more may
depend on what we hear from you
than you can have any idea cf. I
must beg of you to tell everything."
Ursula bent her head gravely. Her
gaze was fixed oh Winstanley's face
that face he kept resolutely turned
away from her. "I saw a man here
last night whom I took at the time to
be Captain Winstanley," she said, in
a low, distinct voice.
"May I ask why you had that im
pression?" ...
"Because h$ was in uniform-—Cap
tain Winstanley's uniform. And he
was exactly like him in the face."
"In that case you could surely have
no doubt of his identity. You know
Captain Winstanley well enough not
to make a mistake."
"I know him intimately."
"Quite so. And when and where did
rou see him?" _.
"I went into your office to see If I
could find a book. It must have been
about half-past eleven. The»e was
some one standing by your safe, which
was open. He took out papers, and
thrust them into the front of his mess
waistcoat Then he turned, and I
thought I saw Captain Winstanley. I
ipoke to him."
Her gaze was still on Noel, and she
•aw that he did not betray the least
ilgn of consciousness of what she
had said. "He did not answer, and
then—then I suddenly was frightened,
tor I was sure it was not he."
"How sure? You must have known
him?"
"I thought I did—that waa the
worst. It was his figure, his face,
out not the rest of him I was sudden
ly certain that It was not he."
General Kenyon looked slightly im
patient. "I. am afraid I don't under
stand you. If It was Captain Win Stan
ley to all appearances, why ahould you
,'?jfihlnk It, was not he?"
A wave of scarlet flooded Ursula's
temples. She cast an imploring glance
.1 yit Winstanley,-and, as she saw that
Jte took no notice of It, hear heart
leapt ^lth conviction. "It was not hlm
igg^ggelf. I seemed to be certain of It In
dozen ways all at once. It was that
arh}ch cave me such a shock. He did
By LILLIAS CAMPBE.LL DAVIDSON
not answer me he terrified me by his
manner and then his hands were not
his—they were hard and dirty and dis
colored, and the nails broken that
was the thing that struck me first."
"His hands! You see them at thit
moment. Do you mean to say that
they seemed different to you last
night?"
"They were quite different! I ex
claimed when I saw them. They were
like the hands of a working man—a
man out of the streets."
General Kenyon shook his head In
credulously. He had no other idea
but that Ursula was unwilling to bear
witness against the man she knew and
liked. "My dear young lady, I fear
you mistook in the dim light, for what
you say sounds impossible. If you
thought Captain Winstanley was sleep
walking or not himself in any other
way, it would be more likely to assist
us in finding out this mystery than any
such speculation as this."
But Ursula only met his look reso
lutely, while a faint gleam of a new
thought crossed her face. "I know it
was not he—I am sure of it—sure as
that I am speaking to you. I don't at
tempt to understand it. It terrified
me last night, and it frightens me still
when I think of it now. I was so cer
tain that it was he for the first mo
ment—and then It seemed equally cer
tain that it was not." Winstanley was
listening attentively, hardly drawing
his breath. His own idea was that he
had been asleep, or in some kind of
strange seizure, In which he must
have acted without consciousness. But
now Ursula's words gave him a sud
den hope of inspiration. What if it
were seme one else after all?
"I am afraid you are trying to Con
vince yourself In the matter," said
General Kenyon, rather sharply.
"What possible feeling could make
you certain that a man you saw be
fore you and recognized and spoke to
was not himself?"
Ursula stood up suddenly and
crossed the room'to Winstanley's side.
She laid her hand boldly upon the arm
that shrunk from her, and she facerl
the general with a sudden pride. "I
am engaged to be married to Captain
Winstanley," she said, with a simple
dignity. "The man I saw last night, I
touched him, and that told me. His
toiich did not move me as this does
now!"
Winstanley unclasped the arms he
held tightly folded, and one hand went
suddenly over the little fingers that
clasped his arm. What, thanks, what
understanding, what recognition
passed In that close pressure from
one to the other, no one else knew.
General Kenyon looked at them
both with a face that softened, though
he shook his head. "That is not evi
dence that any one would accept from
you, my dear Miss Hamilton, however
convincing It might be to yourself,
am afraid, on the contrary, that what
you have Just been good enough to
confide in. me would only make your
testimony of no value in the eyes of
the world. Don't you see that your
very desire to clear a man who stands
to you in such a relation might be
taken by other people as the weight
to overthrow all your doubt of his
identity, which I am afraid others
would not share?"
CHAPTER XX\}l.
1 1
It was Winstanley who spoke now.
He gave that slender hand that rested
beneath his own one parting pressure
then he gently took it from his sleeve.
"Miss Hamilton speaks only the truth,
sir, when she declares that it was not
I she saw. Heaven know? what jug
glery, what deception of people's
senses, there had been. Heaven knows
If I came in a moment of temporary
madness, which, I cannot now remem
ber, and took the papers from your
'safe. I cannot account for what has
happened—for where I was last night.
But I solemnly swear to you that I
am as certain a3 I can be of anything
that I could not have done this thing
even unconsciously and not remem
ber something of it now. I had
doubts as to whether it might have
been, but Miss Hamilton's words
have made me sure once more. There
Is some horrible mistake, some mys
tery, heaven knows what There
only one thing I have to add—with
all depths of gratitude to Miss Hamil
ton for saying what she has just
done."
Here he turned and looked down at
hes, and for the first time his face
made her heart afraid.
"It Is true it was my highest hope
to make her my wife—was, and is
still, for I will never relinquish it. We
were waiting for Colonel Hamilton to
come home before we spoke of it to
other people besides ourselvfes. But
now that I stand under a suspicion
that, goodness knows, I would have
horsewhipped any man for even hint
ing to me yesterday, it is another
thing. While that Hideous suspicion
is there I must not hold the promise
I have from her. I give it back to her
till I am cleared.",
"No, no, Noel!"
"Yes—there is no other Way."
Hamilton, he,1s right there is no oth
er course open to a man of—of—"
"Of honor," he had been about to say,
but he caught himself up a trifle awk
wardly. "Of course," he ended, lame
ly enough. "I think I will take you
to my wife now, if you will allow me.
You have been very courageous and
kind, and I thank you."
The general looked out of the win-.
dow hard, and coughed. "My dear Miss GOLD MINERS.
When he came back from taking her
to the drawing room he faced Win
stanley with a grave and troubled
face.
"Winstanley, this has been as terrl•
ble a business to me as to yourself. I
don't think I need to tell you that
You see my position. It must come
out about these papers—there will be
a stir about it, however much I may
try tohush it up. If it comes to an
Inquiry there must be a court-martial
—I cannot prevent it. There can be
only one result to that, and you know
it. No one will accept the belief that
you are not guilty, and you will be
cashiered and disgraced for ever while
you live, even if there are no civil pro
ceedings following."
Winstanley set his teeth and his
face was white.
"You gather my meaning? Look me
in the face, and tell me again, as if
you stood at the bar of judgment, the
truth."
"As I hope for mercy, then, sir, I
am innocent in thought and deed. If
it w#.s Indeed I who was in your office
last night, it was by no knowledge 6r
consciousness of my own. That I could
betray a trust or sell my honor, even
you should not ask my denial of."
"Well, well, well! Perhaps I am do
ing what I have no business to do' but
your father was my friend. See here,
lad, send in your papers now—at once
—before there can be any rumor of
this get about. Be out of the service
before any service inquiry can Jie set
on foot. Go to another country—it
will be wisest let it all be blown over
and forgotten before you come back.
It is the most I can do for you. If I
did my duty, perhaps I would not give
you the chance."
"I prefer to stand the court-martial,
sir, if you don't mind."
"Boy, you are a fool. You know as
well as I do that you haven't a, leg to
stand on. I tell you the planl propose
to you is the only possible one. Send
In your papers, or, by heaven, I'll let
you take your dismissal and break
that girl's heart."
That girl! He saw her stand before
him once more, her -steadfast face of
love and loyalty turned up to his. His
own face changed and softened. There
was something to live for yet. For her
sake he would fight fate and this hor
rible mystery and win in the end.
He clenched his sword-hand hard,
as if It felt the hilt within it.
"I accept your condition, sir," he
said, with a choke. If the older soldier
noticed that break, he understood
what caused It. The sudden loss of
the profession and the life that had
been precious to them both the giv
ing up1 of all right to spend life and
blood, for the country that was one's
very mother—the going out into the
very desert, as the scapegoat was
driven of old. General Kenyon's old
blue eyes felt a sudden moisture as he
looked at the bowed head of the man
before him, whom he had loved as his
son.
"Captain Noel a'Court WinstanMi
retires from the service. Lieutenant
Annesley Heathcote to be captain, vice
Captain Noel a'Court WJnstanley, re
tired." The paragraph in the 'Gazette'
was read by all Portsmouth and
Southsea with astonished eyes. Cap
tain Winstanley leaving the service!
It was incredible. Had he come into
money? was his old uncle dead?
What could be the meaning of it?
There were whispers hidden and se
cret—there were some that came
strangely near the truth. General
Kenyon had been right when he said
these things never could be quits
hushed up but there was no cojiflrma
tion of them, for sure'-?, if they haa
been true, there would have jjeen a
scandal that must have been known.

How They Are Made to Pick Up Nug
gets, Then Killed.
The champion gold mining story of
the season has gained circulation at
Lead. According to the story, two
men plan to become rich as the re
sult of purchasing a number of chick
ens, which will carry on the mining
operations for them.
Some days ago, so the story runs,
"Johnnie" Mengel, who is manager
of a minJgfitjCompany'B store at Han
na, a tow
jr
the gold mining district
of the Hills, purchased some
pullets kas Charles Burgess, who
owns soplju-ind near Hanna. Mengel
killed antfjjressed the chickens, and
Jened their crops he was
find that instead of being
when he
surprised!*
filled wlt&r gravel, they fairly bulged
out-with small sized nuggets of pure
gold.
All the nuggets are alleged to have
shown evidence of wear from long
continued use in the digestive ap
paratus of the chickens. Mengel did
not say anything about his "find" to
any one but J. 13, Rhinehardt, who
represents a paint and glass concern
of Omaha, and who was visiting him
at the time. He took Mr. Rhinehardt
Into his confidence, and they pro
ceeded to the ranch of Mr. Burgess
and purchased all his remaining
chickens, and are now said to be
negotiating for the lease of his prop
erty,'
The two men, after getting the
chickens to a place where they would
not be observed by curious prospect
ors who are always on the watch In
the hope of discovering a gold min-e,
slaughtered the fowls and made an
other fine "cleanup" of gold from
their crops. This "cleanup," it is an
nounced, has been taken to Omaha
by Mr. Rhinehardt, where it will be
refined and moulded into a bar. Men
gel refuses to say how much the
"cleanup" will amount, to in dollars
and cents, but he volunteered the
Information that it would be better
than some of the "cleanups" made
by many of the small mills which are
being operated by gold mining com
panies throughout the Black Hills.
Mengel is quite a shrewd man, for
after himself and Rhinehardt had
slaughtered the chickens and re
moved the gold from their crops, he
sold the carcasses to his customers,
thus, as the old saying it, "killing two
birds with one stone."
In- the event that Mengel and
Rhinehardt succeed In securing a
lease on the property of Mr. Burgess,
it is stated, to be- the Intention to
stock the place with chickens to the
number of several hundred.
About every two weeks they will
kill all the chickens, secure from
their crops the gold which they have
in the meantime scratched out of the
ground and swallowed, after wMch
the carcasses will be sold to butchers
In the surrounding towns.
Then, several hundred more chick
ens would be purchased and placed
on the leased ground, when the proc
ess of permitting the chickens to per
form gold mining for them would be
repeated. Mendel is something of a
mathematician, and estimates that by
this means himself and partner in
this unique mining venture will be
able to get all the gold that is in the
gravel along the creek without the
necessity of going to the expense of
purhcasing expensive mining ma-

takes only a few minutes, considerable
quantities can be manufactured in
comparatively small space of time.—

Attempts Made to Produce It From
Peat Fibers.
Frequent attempts have been made
to use peat as raw material for the j\~
manufacture of artificial wood. The^'
material must, for this purpose, be3s'
fulljijreduced to a fibrous condition, sof.jj
as to "produce a fibrous and a mealy
mass. This mixture is mixed with an
emulsion of two parts by measure of
plaster of paris, and ten to twelve ol
water and Is subjected for considera
ble time to heavy hydraulic pressure'"
in molds, then artificially dried, pol- Sf?
lshed and oiled, painted and varnished.

GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP.
Mil
Brain
i.,
Lying awake nights makes It hardt,
to keep awake and do things in day^^
time. To take "tonics and stimu*^^
lants" under such circumstances is'--/,|
like setting the house on fire to
if you can put it out.
The right kind of food promotes re-|f^
freshing sleep at night and a wide-iA?
awake individual during the day. 8$^
A lady changed from her old way
eating, to Grape-Nuts, and says:
"For about three years I had been^'
a great sufferer from indigesUon£||',
After trying several kinds of medi- v?
cine, the doctor would ask me to drop
off potatoes, then meat, and so on,
but in a few days that craving, gnaw-y,
ing feeling would start up, and I
would vomit everything I ate and
drank.
"When I started on Grape-Nuts,
vomiting stopped, and the bloating
feeling which was so distressing dis
appeared entirely.
"My mother waa very much both
ered with diarrhea before commenc
ing the Grape-Nuts, because her stom
ach was so weak she could not digest
her food. Since using Grape-Nuts she
is well, and says she don't think she
could live without it.
"It Is a great brain restorer and
nerve builder, for I can sleep as sound
and undisturbed after a supper of
Grape-Nuts as in the old days when
I could not realize what they meant
by a "bad stomach." There Is no
medicine so beneficial to nerves: and
brain as a good night's sleep, such as
you can enjoy after eating Grape
Nuts."
