CHAPTER XV.-—(Continued.)
"This is a good chance for me—
this 'ere," whispered the Shady 'Un
to himself. "Nice chap you are to
give yourself airs, an' git yer pals to
bang me about, ain't yer? This little
bit of business may Stand me in all
right if I gets into trouble on me own.
Yes, Dandy, I'll make sure of you right
The Shady 'Un, after assuring him
self that Philip was sleeping heavily,
left the place and bent, his steps in a
direction tliey would not willingly
have taken on any other occasion—to
a police station. Within a very little
time messages had flashed to and fro
upon the wires questions had been
asked and answered and a silent and
taciturn sergeant, accompanied by a
couple of constables, went back with
the Shady 'Un to bis lodging.
Philip, waking from an uneasy
sleep, saw the grim faces, the blue
coats, the helmets of the law, and
knew that the game was up.' The
Shady 'Un, after being quite sure that
he was secured, drew near.
"These gents know me, and they
know as 'ow I've 'ad my little bit or
trouble afore to-day. But my 'ands—
look at 'em, gents, I beg of yer—my
'ands is free from blood an' stch-like
wickedness. Gents, if ever the time
should come w'en, for dooty's sake,
yoli should 'ave to be 'ard on me,
you'll remember this in my favor,
won't yer?"
"Oh, yes, we'll remember it," re
sponded the taciturn sergeant. "Come,

Late that night Bamberton was
stirred to Its depths again by the news
that Mr. Dandy Chater was in close
custody in the lock-up, with a special
draft of constables to keep watch
over him
-t' Who Killed This Woman?
Bamberton was taking grim holiday.
Bamberton the sleepy—with nothing
to stir It from one dreary year's end to
the other, treading its dull, respecta
ble round, knowing exactly who mar
ried who, and how John This, or John
That, got on with their respective
wives, with the certainty of the dull
little clock in .the Chater Arms—bad
suddenly awakened to find itself no
torious and Its name in big print in
the great London papers.
Moreover, had not Bamberton the
uewly-awakened already had pictures
of its High street (with an impossible
man, in a smock-frock, leaning on a
species of clothes-prop, in the fore
ground) in the illustrated and evening
journals? Had not Bamberton already
been photographed, interviewed,
stared at, and made public in a hun
dred different ways?
Now, too, had come the day of the
inquest and impossible rumors' were
already in the air soncerning that
same inquest, and the marvelous
things which were to be said and done
thereat. Scarcely to be wondered at,
therefore, is it that Bamberton should
be taking grim holiday, and should be
flocking to the place where twelve
lucky members of itB male community
had been summoned to give judgment
concerning the doing to death of poor
Patience Miller.
At a period long since forgotten
some charitable inhabitant, or other
person intefested in the welfare of the
male and female youth of Bamberton,
had had dreams of an institute and,
with that laudable design in view,
had pounced, upon the only unoccupied
spacious building in the locality and
had endeavored to transform it into
a hall of semi-dazzling light. The at
tempt had been a failure and the
Uvilding—which was no other than
the old mill, which stood on the out
skirts of the wood— .had long since
fallen into greater decay than before.
But this place had again come be
fore the public notice by reason of the
fact that the body of the murdered
girl had been carirol there after its
discovcrr. at that place the in
quest was to be held. The body had
been put in an upper room, a species
of loft the inquest was to be held in
the great room of the mill, where cer
tain iron rings and rotting ropes—part
of an abortive attempt at a gymnasi
um—hung suggestively from the ceil
ing, and thither all Bamberton bent its
Whisperings and murmurings and
the shuffling, of many feet, with some
glanceB toward the ceiling, as though
curious eyes would pierce through and
see the ghastly thing laid above. At
present only ai grave-faced country
constable or two setting chairs in or
der for the twelve lucky men, the
coroner, and the witnesses and exer
cising a little brief authority in keep

were pressing forward beyond the
limits assigned for the general public.
Once or twice the door of a smaller
room opened, and an Important look­
By Tom (ialloa.
ing little man, with a hard face and a
tuft of hair on his chin, came bustling
out, with a little sheaf of papers in
his band, to whisper to one or the
other of the constables. The door of
that room proved to be a keen source
of attraction to many eyes, for it was
whispered that the prisoner waited
After what seemed an interminable
length of time a little gentleman, in
a black frock coat, thrust his way
with some impatience through the
general public, and made his way to
one end of the table set apart in the
cleared space. A murmur ran round
that this was the coroner from the
neighboring country town murmurs,
also, that he did not quite look the
part. Inasmuch as he wore an air of
cheerfulness, which seemed almost to
suggest that he was about to preside
at a wedding rather than at anything
so formidable as an inquest.
A little glancing at his watch by this
gentleman, an expostulatory whisper
or two on his part to the constables in
attendance, and the door of the inner
room opened again, and Inspector
Tokely came bustling out. One con
stable, a stranger to Bamberton, and
of more importance oa that account,
produced a list from which, with a
strong provincial accent, he proceed
ed to call out certain names. Then
more shuffling of feet, and some
friendly pushing of bashful jurymen
forward, and the twelve ranged them
selves sheepishly, with much cough
ing, round the table, and were duly
"Be seated, gentlement, I beg," said
the coroner, busy with his papers.
"Stop one moment, though," glancing
up quickly "have you viewed the
Several of the jurymen present ex
pressed a decided disinclination to
do anything of the kind and it be
came apparent that that important
ceremony had not been performed.
"Really, Moody," exclaimed the cor
oner, "this is most remis on your part.
This should have been done first of all.
We are wasting time—valuable time."
The repentant Mr. Moody—the
strange constable—made some at
tempt at an apology, and concluded by
hurrying the jurymen through another
door, where they were heard to go
heavily up -wooden stairs, and to tramp
about a little overhead. In the mean
time the coroner had a word or two
with Inspector Tokely, and- glanced
once or twice, with a nod, toward the
door where the prisoner was supposed
to be.
The jurymen coming down again—
some of them rather white-faced and
wide-eyed—the coroner abruptly mo
tioned them to their seats, and turned
to Tokely as he took his own.
"Inspector, I think we may have Mr.
Chater in here now."
The general public seemed to stir
and sway, as though bent by a sudden
wind bending toward each other and
whispering hoarsely, yet keeping their
eyes with one accord turned toward
that door. Inspector Tokely hurried
out, and came back in another mo

through the doorway immediately
following him came Philip Chater,

at the murmuring crowd seemed to
seek one face in it, and to smile as he
recognized it. At the same moment a
woman in the crowd burst into violent
The coroner rapped the table impa
tiently with his knuckles. "Any dem
onstration on the part of any member
of the public will necessitate my clear

ing sternly about him.
One of the jurymen, no other than
old Toby Siggs, rose ponderously in
his place. "Askin' yer pardon, mister,"
he said slowly, "I rather think as 'ow
that was my ole gal." Then, before
the astonished coroner could interpo
late a remark, Toby turned abruptly,
and addressed his spouse 'Earty is
it, ole gal," he said, in a voice like muf
fled thunder, for her special hearing,
"we'll git '1m off afore you'd 'ave time
to draw 'arf a pint. Bear in mind, ole
gal, as 'ow I've got a vote."
"My good sir," interposed the cor
oner, hurriedly, "let me impress upon
you that this business must be tried
judiciously and fairly—with no bias.
Understand that clearly."
Toby nodded his head with much
gravity. "Sich are my intentions, mis
ter," he said. "So lire away as 'ard
as you like. An' heaven 'elp the win
ner!" With which pious exclamation
Toby Siggs sat down, perfectly satis
fled with himself.
And now the coroner—in a quick,
bustling fashion, as though he were in
a hurry and should be glad to get so
unimportant a matter off his hands—
began to inform the jury of what their
clear duty was, and how rapidly they
might set about it. The body of this
young'girl, gentlemen, had been found
in the adjacent wood. She was stabbed
very near a vital part, and had un
doubtedly, under considerable paUi
and for a period perhaps of half
hour, slowly bled to death. They would
be told by the medical gentleman then 1
present—who had made a most care-!
fnl post-mortem examination of the
body—that the wound could not have
been self-inflicted.
Such being the case, gentlemen, it
devolved upon them to discover in
what fashion her death had been
caused and here he would remind
them that they must be guided entire
ly by circumstantial evidence. A man
a gentleman of good position—ap
peared before them that day in a most
unenviable situation. It was not for
him, gentlemen, to tell them of their
duty, or to lead them to imagine that
any guilt attached to the» man they
saw before them, all that they must
judge for thembelves. V1
But they would be confronted with
witnesses—most unwilling witnesses—
who would tell them of the intimacy
-which had undoubtedly existed be
tween this man and the murdered girl
they would be told, gentlemen, by a
witness from the railway station of the
appearance of this man, in a great
state of excitement and hurry, at the
station, in time—barely time, gentle
men—to catch the last train to Lon
don. This, too, on the very night of
the murder, and within a very short
time of the hour at which, according to
the medical testimony they would
hear, this unfortunate young woman
must have been struck down
Here the coioner stopped to clear
his throat, and to glance at Philip
Chater as though to assure that unfor
tunate man that he was quite prepared
to put a rope round his nock within the
next few minutes, .and had already
got it half spun.
The gentlemen of the jury,"- who
surely know tlieir duties, would be
told how this man, deserting his home,
had fled to London how he had come
back in the dead nf night, and had
been seen about the village how a
most intelligent officer—a gentleman
fiom Scotland Yard, gentlemen—had
endeavored to capture him how he
had again fled to London. They would
be told by a former associate of this
man—now very repentant of his con
nection with him—of a sort of semi
confession made by this man to him.
More than all, they would hear that
a spade had been discovered near the
body which had evidently been used
in a hurried atttmpt to dig a grave for
the murdered girl (the crowd swayed
again like an angry sea, and one wo
man shrieked out something unintel
ligible against the man who stood so
calmly through it all), and that spade
would be traced as having come from
the residence of the man now before
them While admitting, gentlemen,
that all the evidence was purely cir
cumstantial, the coroner must beg
them not to cast it lightly aside on
t.nat account, but to hear the witness
with patience. And so sat down, hav
ing snun his rope to a tolerable length
and strength.
Marshalled by Tokely, the'flrst wit
nesses were already shuffling to their
places, wliei^ an Interruption came
from among the crowd, and a young
man thrust himself forward and made
.straight for the corner. He was a
bright-faced fellow, with a cool and
gentlemanly bearing, and he gave a
quick nod to Philip as he pressed for
