lance of Mildy Upton, whose subdued ,nose was frankly red and who shed itears on the raspberries, had prepared an appetizing table at his elbow. "Yes," responded the judge, "and I'm glad she sent it I talked the other rtvay yesterday, what little I saidit isn't any of our businessbut I don't think any too much of those people somehow. She thinks she belongs with Fisbee, and I guess she's right. That young fellow must have got along 'With her pretty well, and I'm afraid When she gives up she'll be pretty bad over it but I guess we all will. It's terribly sudden, somehow, though it's only what everybody half expected would come, only we thought it would come from over yonder." He nodded toward the west. "But she's got to stay here with us. Boarding at Tibbs' with that old man won't do, and she's no girl to live in two rooms. You fix it up with heryou make her stay." "She must," answered his daughter as she knelt beside him and patted his coat and handed him several things to eat at the same time. "Mr. Fisbee will help me persuade her, now that "Father," she said. she's bound to stay in spite of him and the Sherwoods too. I've always thought she was grand, ever since she took me under her protection at school, when I" Minnie was speaking sadly, me chanically, but suddenly she broke off with a quick sob, turned to the win dow, then turned again to Briscoe and cried: "I don't believe it! He knew how to take care of himself too well. He'd have got away from them." Her father shook his head. "Then why hasn't he turned up? He'd have gone home after the storm if something bad wasn't the matter." "But nothingnothing that bad could have happened. They haven't foundanyanything." "But why hasn't he come back, child?" "Well, he's lying hurt somewhere, that's all." "Then why haven't they found him?" "I don't care," she cried and choked with the words and tossed her dishev eled hair from her temples, "it isn't true! Helen won't believe it. Why should I? It's only a few hours since he was right here in our yard talking to us all. I won't believe it till they've searched every stick and stone of Six Crossroads and found him." "It wasn't the Crossroads," said the old gentleman, pushing the table away and relaxing his limbs on the sofa. "They probably didn't have any thing to do with it. We thought they 'had at first, but everybody's about come to believe it was those two fel lows that he had arrested yesterday." "It wasn't the Crossroads!" echoed Minnie, and she began to tremble vio lently. "Haven't they been out there yet?" "What use? They are out of it, and they can thank God they are." "They are not!" she cried, very much agitated. "They did it. It was the White Caps. We saw them, Helen and I." The judge got upon his feet with an oath. He had not sworn for years un til that morning. "What's this?" he said sharply. "I ought to have told you before, but we were so frightened, andand you went off in such a rush after Mr. Wiley was here. I never dreamed everybody wouldn't know it was the Crossroads that they would think of any one else. And I looked for the scarecrow as soon as it was light, and it was away off from where we saw them and wasn't blown down at all and Helen saw them in the field besides saw all of them" He interrupted her. "What do you mean? Try to tell me about it quietly, child." He laid his hand on her shoul der. She told him breathlessly what she and Helen had seen, and he grew more pnd more visibly perturbed and un feasy, biting his cigar to pieces and groaning at intervals. When she had finished he took a few quick turns about the room, with his hands thrust deep in his coat pockets, and then, charging her to repeat the story to no one, left the house and, forgetting his fatigue, rapidly crossed the fields to the point where the bizarre figures of [the night had shown themselves to the two girls at the window. The soft ground had been trampled Uy many feet. The boot prints pointed to the northeast. He traced them back ward to the southwest through the field and saw where they had come from near the road, going northeast jthen, returning, he climbed the fence and followed them northward through jthe next field. From there the next field to the north, lying beyond the road that was a continuation of Main street, stretched to the railroad embankment. fFhe track, raggedly defined in tram pled loam and muddy farrow, bent in a direction which indicated that its termins might be the switch where the empty cars had stood last' night waiting for the 1 o'clock freight. Though the fields had been trampled in inaiJy places by the searching parties, he felt sure of the direction taken by the Crossroads men, and he perceived that the searchers had mistaken the tracks he followed for those of earlier parties in the hunt. On the embankment he saw a number of men walking west and examining the ground on each side and a long line of people following them out from town. He stopped. He held the fate of Six Crossroads in his hand, and he knew it. The men on the embankment were Walking slowly, bending far over, their eyes fixed on the ground. Suddenly one of them stood erect and tossed his arms in the air and shouted loudly. Other men ran to him, and another far down the track repeated the shout and the gesture to another far in his rear. This man took it up and shouted and waved to a fourth man, and so they passed the signal back to town. There came almost immediately three long, loud whistles from a mill near the sta tion, and the embankment grew black with people pouring out from town, while the searchers came running from the fields and woods and underbrush on both sides of the railway. Briscoe began to walk on toward the embankment. The track lay level and straight, not dimming in the middle distances, the rails converging to points both north west and southeast in the clean washed air like examples of perspective in a Child's drawing book. About seventy miles to the west and north lay Rouen. In the same direction, nearly six miles from where the signal was given, the' track was crossed by a road leading directly south to Six Crossroads. The embankment had been newly ballasted with sand. What had been discovered was a broad brown stain in the sand on the south slope near the top. There were smaller stains above and below, none beyond it to left or right, and there were many deep foot prints in the sand. Men were exam ining the place excitedly, talking and gesticulating. It was Lhje Willetts who had found it. His horse was tethered to a fence near by at the end of a lane through a cornfield. Jared Wiley, the deputy sheriff, was talking to a group near the stain, explaining. "You see, them two must have knowed about the 1 o'clock freight and that it was to stop here to take on the empty lumber cars. I don't know how they knowed it, but they did. It was this way: When they got out the win dow they beat through the storm straight for this side track. At the same time Mr. Harkless leaves Bris coe's, goin' west. It begins to rain. He cuts across to the railroad to have a sure footin' and strikin' for the deepo for shelternear place as any, except Briscoe's, where he's said good night already, and prob'ly don't wish to go back, fear of givin' trouble or keepin' 'em up. Anybody can under stand that. He comes along and gets to where we are precisely at the time they do, them comin' from town, him strikin' for it. They run right into each other. That's what happened. They re-cog-nized him and raised up on him and let him have it. What they done it with I don't know. We took everything in that line off of 'em. Prob'ly used railroad iron, and what they done with him afterward we don't know, but we will by night. They'll sweat it out of 'em up at Rouen when they get 'em." "I reckon maybe some of us might help," remarked Mr. Watts reflectively. Jim Bardlock swore a violent oath. "That's the talk!" he shouted. "Ef I ain't the first man of this crowd to set my foot in Roowun and first to beat in that jail door I'm not town marshal of Plattville, county of Carlow, state of Indiana, and the Lord have mercy on our souls!" Tom Martin looked at the brown stain and quickly turned away. Then he went back slowly to the village. On the way he passed Warren Smith. "Is it so?" asked the lawyer. Martin answered with a dry throat. He looked out over the sunlit fields and swallowed once or twice. "Yes, It's so. There's a good deal of it there. Little more than a boy he was." The old fellow passed his seamy hand over his eyes without concealment. "Peter ain't very bright sometimes, it seems to me," he added brokenly "overlook Bodeffer and Fisbee and me, and all of us old husks, andand"he gulp ed suddenly, then finished"and act the fool and take a boy that's the best we had. I wish the Almighty would take Peter off the gate. He ain't fit fer it." When the attorney reached the spot where the crowd was thickest, way was made for him. The old colored man, Xenophon, approached at the same time, leaning on a hickory stick and bent very far over, one hand rest ing on his hip as if to ease a rusty Joint. The negro's age was an incentive to fable. From his appearance he might have known the prophets, and he wore that hoary look of unearthly wis dom which many decades of super stitious experience sometimes give to members of his race. His face, so tor tured with wrinkles that it might have been made of innumerable black threads woven together, was a living mask of the mystery of his blood. Harkless had once said that Uncle Xenophon had visited heaven before Swedenborg and hell before Dante. To day as he slowly limped over the ties bis eyes were bright and dry under the solemn lids, and, though his heavy nostrils were unusually distended in the effort for regular breathing, the deeply puckered lips beneath them were set firmly. He stopped and look ed at the faces before him. When he spoke his voice was gentle, and, though the tremulousness of age harped on the ocal strings, it was rigidly controlled. "Kin some kine gelmun," he asked, THE PfilKCETCXN UNION: THirKSDSR "please t' be so good ez tf show de ole main whuh de W'ite Caips is done shoot Marse Hawkliss?" "Here was where it happened, Uncle Zen," answered Wiley, leading him for ward. "Here is the stain." Xenophon bent over the spot on the sand, making little odd noises in his throat. Then he painfully resumed his formra* position. "Dass his blood," he said in the same gentle, quavering tone. "Dass my bes' frien' whut lay on de groun' whay yo' staind, gelmun. Dass whuh dey laid 'im, an' dass whuh he lie," the old negro continued. "Dey shot 'im in de fiel's. Dey ain't shot 'im heah. Yondeh dey druggen 'im, but dis whuh he lie." He bent over again, then knelt groaningly and placed his hand on the stain, one would have said, as a man might place his hand over a heart to see if it still beat. He was motionless, with the air of heark ening. "Marse, honey, is you gone?" He raised his voice as if calling. "Is yo' gone, suhmarse?" He looked up at the circle about him, and then, still kneeling, not taking his hand from the sand, seeming to wait for a sign to listen for a voice, he said: "Whafo' yo' gelmun think de good Lawd summon Marse Hawkliss? Kase he de mos' fittes'? You know, dat man he ketch me in de cole night, wintuh 'fo' lais,' stealin' 'is wood. You know whut he done t' de ole thief? Tek an' buil' up big flab een ole Zen' shainty. Say: 'He'p yo'se'f, an' welcome. Reck on you hongry, too, ain' you, Xeno- phon?' Tek an' feed me. tek an' tek keer o' me ev' since. Ah pump de baith full in de mawn', mek 'is bed, pull de weeds out'n de front walk dass all. He tek me in. When Ah aisk 'im ain' he 'fraid keep ole thief he say, jesso: 'Dass all my fault, Xenophon ought look you up long 'go ought know long 'go you be cole dese baid nights. Reck on Ah'm de thievenest one 'us two, Xenophon, keepin' all dis wood stock' up when you got none,' he say. jesso. Tek me in say he lahk a thief pay me sala'y feed me. Dass de main whut de Caps gone shot lais* night." He raised his head sharply, and the mys tery in his gloomy eyes intensified as they opened wide and stared at the sky unseeingly. "Ah's bawn wid a cawl!" he exclaim ed loudly. His twisted frame was braced to an extreme tension. "Ah's bawn wid a cawl! De blood anssuh!" "It wasn't the White Caps. Uncle Xenophon," said Warren Smith, laying his hand on the old man's shoulder. Xenophon rose to his feet. He stretched a long, bony arm straight to the west, where the Crossroads lay stood rigid and silent, like a seer then spoke: "De men whut shot Marse Hawk liss lies yondeh, hidin' f'um delight o' day. An' him"he swerved his whole rigid body till the arm pointed north west"he lies yondeh. You won' fine 'im heah. Dey fought 'im in de fiel's. an' dey druggen 'im heah. Dis whuh dey lay 'im down. Ah's bawn wid a cawl!" There were exclamations from the listeners, for Xenophon spoke as one having authority. Suddenly he turned and pointed his outstretched hand full at Judge Briscoe. "An' dass de main," he cried "dass de main kin tell yo' Ah speak de trufe!" Before Briscoe answered, Eph Watts looked at him keenly and then turned to Lige Willetts -and whispered: "Get on your horse, ride in and ring the courthouse bell like fury. Do as I say." Tears stood in the judge's eyes. "It is so," he said solemnly. "He speaks the truth. I didn't mean to tell it to day, but somehow" He paused. "The hounds!" he cried. "They de serve it. My daughter saw them cross ing the fields in the nightsaw them climb the fence, a big crowd of them. She and the lady who is visiting us saw themsaw them plainly. The lady saw them several times clear as day by the flashes of lightning. The scoundrels were coming this way. They must have been dragging him with "Ah's baton wid a cawll" them then. He couldn't have had a show for his life among them. Do what you like. Maybe they've got him at the Crossroads. If there's a chance of it, dead or alive, bring him back!" A. voice rang out above the clamor that followed the judge's speech. 'Bring him back!' God could, may be, but he won't Who's travelin' my way? I go west!" Hartley Bowlder had ridden his sorrel right up the em bankment, and the horse stood between the rails. There was an angry roar from the crowd. The prosecutor pleaded and threatened unheeded, and, as for the deputy sheriff, he declared his intention of taking with him all who wished to go as his posse. Eph Watts succeeded In making himself heard above the tumult. "The square!" he shouted. "Start from the square. We want everybody. We'll need them. And we want every one in Carlow to be implicated in this posse." "They will be!" shouted a farmer. "Don't you worry about that." "We want to get into some sort of hape!" cried Eph. "Shape!" repeated Hartley Bowlder scornfully. There was a hiss and clang and rat tle behind him, and a steam whistle shrieked. The crowd divided, and Hartley's sorrel scrambled down just In time as the westbound accommoda tion rushed by on its way to Rouen. From the rear platform leaned the Bheriff, Horner, waving his hands fran tically as he flew by, but no one un derstood or cared what he said or in the general excitement even wondered why he was going away. When the train had dwindled to a dot and dis appeared and the noise of its rush grew faint the courthouse bell was heard ringing, and the m4b was rush tag pellmell into the village to form on the square. The judge stood alone on the embankment. "That settles it," he said aloud, gloomily watching the last figures. He took off his hat and pushed back the thick white hair from his forehead. "Nothing to do but wait. Might as well go home for that. Blast, it!" he ex claimed impatiently. "I don't want to go there, it's too hard on the little girl. If she hadn't come till next week she'dnever have knownJohn Harkless." [TO BE CONTINUED.] Catarrh Permanently Cured. Nasal catarrh, catarrh of head or catarrhal deafness. No cure, no pay.
