C. ALLEN & CO., BOX 420, AUGUSTA, MAINE. “Vou have come only just in time, m> i dear lady,” Raid be a» be began to fill up a telegram form. “Mr. Scbemyl leaves Mo* cow tomorrow.” “But my friends are not in Moscow.” I j Raid. “No; they are at Voroutskaya, I suppose It would never do for Mr. Scbemyl to re ceive a telegram there from London. Do you know whom he left in charge of the posthoURe when he came away?” “His brother Borgia, I think.” “Ah, a clever man, Mr. Borgia Scbemyl. very clever 1 congratulate you—one of the cleverest men in the business. He will get a telegram from his brother at Moscow to morrow in all probability and put your friends well on the road before Mr Sche niyl returns.” “You think they will get away safely?” I asked anxiously “There’s every hope if Mr. Borris has the management. The only difficulty will be in crossing the frontier, but if you have uo enemies here who are likely to warn the police you may reasonably expect to see your friends in three or four weeks’ time.” Commenting on this interview as we left Carter st reet, Mr. Pelham said: “Everything points to the necessity—the vital necessity—of keeping Kavanagh in ignorance of your esca|>e. Even when Mr Gordon returns. Kavanagh ought not to know it liefore we have obtained an order for his arrest. At the first intimation of danger he will try to slip through our fin gers Now, where is Mr. Gordou likely to go when he reaches London?” "To launbeth.” 1 replied without hesita tion. “Why, tnat is the very place he ought to avoid. Cau you thiuk of no means of com muuicating with him before he arrives here?” After a moment’s consideration I said that it was probable be would call upon the people who had helped me in Berlin Mr. Hoiiinait and his wife. “Considering ull things— Excuse me madam,” he broke oft, with an a[K>lo get ic cough, “but your bair behind has worked a little to oue side. Considering all things, as I was about to remark,” be continued, when 1 had replaced the false hair, “do not you thiuk it would lie advis able to goto Berlin and wait therewith these friend* until Mr. Gordon conies?” “No, 1 Haul, “1 could not do that. 1 must he in England. 1 will write to Her liu: that will au«wer the same purpose.” He shook his head doubtfully and glanced nervously at my treacherous knot. I, too, felt that it would be wiser to go awuy, but I could uot reconcile myself to the idea of going so far h orn Taras, even fora few weeks, little as I had to hope iu staying near him “May I ask where 1 may write to you in case 1 have anything important to com municatc?” “1 will let you have uu address. 1 do uot know yet where 1 shall stay I think near Woking.” “Woking. Of course you have no reason to sUH(»ect that Mr. Kavuuagh might by chance go to Woking?” “1 know he |Mtsses through the town oc casionally; hut.” 1 added hastily, to allay the alarm expressed in the little solicitor's face, “the place 1 thought of slaying at is a roadside inn quite out of the towu, where be would never think of stopping.” “Still, rnauy people visit a roadside Inn. You could uot always stay iu one room out of sight, and —excuse my sayiug so—your appearance might excite curiosity and give rise to gossip, which would be in the high eat degree undesirable. I positively think, niadame, that out of respect to the geutle man who has advanced this money” “1 will not go there,” 1 said, already con vinced of the folly of yielding to a merely morbid and sentimental motive. “Tell me what 1 ought to do, aud 1 will do it.” “Have you any idea where Mr Kava nagh lives?” “At Sydenham, I think.” “Ah, well, if you took a lodging at Stoke Newingtou, say. I think you would be per fectly safe—especially if you laid aside your disguise.” 1 feel sure my hair had gone wroug again “And what shall 1 do then?” I asked, feeling that the loug period of suspense would be intolerable without some occu pation to divert my thoughts. “What should you have done at Wok ing, madame?” Mr Pelham asked perti neatly. “1 think 1 should have walked a great deal iu the woods.” "Unfortunately there are no woods at Stoke Newington, but there are other at tractions for a lady. There are shops and— Are you fond of music?” “Music!” 1 echoed, jumping at the sug gestion. “That is the very tbing. I warn to learn the piano.” “In that case 1 think 1 can suggest the very thiug that would meet all require ments. 1 have a sister living there who gives lessous in pianoforte playing. She would lie happy to give you board and lodg Ing, and there would be no necessity for exnlanations. which might be reouired else vmere. i myself nve at atone rsewington, and if it is agreeable to you we will go ut once to niy sister Janet and arrange the at fair.” 1 accepted this offer eagerly, for the uo tion of learning music fired my itnaginu tion with the wildest hopes In my iguo ranee 1 thought t hat by working all day I might in a month be able to play as well a Judith Bell. And that night 1 took up m quarters under the roof of Miss Janet Pel ham. __ CHAPTKR XLV I DISCOVER THE FIRST CAUSE OF KAVA , SAGH’S VILLAINY Miss Janet Pelham was the dearest little old maid that ever lived. She had the bird like alacrity ami cheerfulness of her broth er, but wit b a sweet ami amiable dispose tion which was less perceptible In hisebar acter because of the restraint imposed by considerations of professional etiquette maybe. But indulgent as her nature was. Miss Pelham could not permit me to prae tice scales on Sunday Possibly she felt for her neighbors, loi the walls were thin, and they certuiuly heard enough strum ming for six days of the week to eutitle them to u day's rest on the seventh. But the inaction which was a godsend to them was intolerable to me, aud so on the second Sunday I put a little parcel of provisions, which 1 had bought overnight, in my pock et and left Stoke Newington at an early hour. There was but one place in the world tbal bad any attraction for me, ami that was Betterford. ami with a wild feeling of free doni ami hope, heightened by my love of adventure and the seuseof the risk I ran, 1 took the first train from Waterloo to Wok fug. I was alone in the compartment when the train started, and taking advantage of this opportunity I carefully pinned on the pieces of false hair 1 bad brought with me and put on the thick, spotted veil to com plete the disguise. A very beautiful fir wood lies at the back of the Grange. It slopes down to the common, and from a path winding round the hill, at a certain point, one o > tuins an unobstructed view of the Gratis • and its surrounding grounds below A seat has been fixed there, for this opening com mauds one of the finest views in Surrey. I the undulating country spreading out Is* yond the common as far as the eye can reach. It took me by surprise when I looked dowu and saw the Grange lying open to my observation below. It seemed as if something more than hazard had guided me to this spot. “It must be lunchtime.” 1 said to my self, seeing no one in the garden. I aiu hungry tco. Perhaps by the time I have eaten my lunch Taras will have finished his. Then lie will come out to smoke a cigar and look into that wonderful world bo spoke of.” I sat dowu and ate the sandwiches I bail brought. Then, after waiting with eager hope and expectation for about half uu hour, my heart bounded as Taras came out from the house und walked slowly over the lawn. He was not alone. A thin old gen tlemau walked by his side. I knew Taras the moment i saw him, but it was some time before I felt certain that his compan Ion was Colonel Dell. Instinctively 1 drew aside, screening uiy self behind a bramble, it was not likely that the old gentleman would descry me at that distance, still less that, perceiving me, he couhi recognize who I was Pres ently a young lady with a sunshade ap pea red, immediately followed by a geutle man. Him I knew at the first glam e to Im? Mr. Kavanagb by his height, carriage and smart appearance. They crossed the lawn to Tunis and Colonel Bell and u few min utes alter sauntered away, disappearing beyond the shrubbery that hedged the lawn. I was glnd when she went away, for I knew it must be Judith, though her sun shade concealed her head and lace from me. While she was there only a feeling of jealousy imbittered my thoughts When she was gone, my heart beat more calmly, and I could look dowu upon my dear frieud with that tender sentiment which I bad made the pilgrimage to iudulge iu. Mere Lucas brought out a glittering liquor set and a box of cigars and set them on a table before the gurden seat. Kven there I could hear her laugh. These and many other trifling incidents 1 noticed with untiring interest until the sound of voices startled me front my reverie, and lookiug downward 1 perceived through the inter veiling growth a bright speck of color, it was t he sunshade I had seen iu the gardeu. Judith and Kavanagb were coming up through the wood by the winding path. I stepped back noiselessly and looked round for a hiding place, not knowing by which path to escape meeting them. A deep trench bordered the inner side of the path, overgrown in parts by straggling brambles and dead brake. 1 crept round the seat and droDDed in the trench behind it. think mg that 1 should be secure there while they passed. It was not likely that they would stop tp pry Into theditefi at the base I crept round the sent arui drrrpped in the trench Itehirnl it oTToe seat, mey nau ceased to talk, out ; as they drew nearer and nearer 1 heard tne sound of their footsteps. I could see noth tng but the banks and the loose growth about me. The sound ceased, and then, quite close, I beard Kavanagh exclaim in admiration: “By .Jove, what a glorious view!” “This is my favorite walk. When It is fine, we come and sit here for a time.” Ju ditb answered. “A pleasant suggestion Shall we rest a bit?” I heard the rustle of Judith’s skirts as she seated herself, and then Kavanagh speaking again: “Ah, there’s the Grange below there, and Taras with your father.” “Poor papa! Even from here I see the change in him. He used to sit so erect.” “It’s t bat detestable office. He sticks at ft too close. He is there ben ling over his desk from morning till night. It is too much for a man of his age. Why should be? A lad at 15 shillings a week could do the work be does.” “Happily he does not know that.” “Unhappily I think he does. That blun dering idiot, the accountant, made it clear to him that his share in the business is practically nil, and knowing that but lit tle persuasion is needed to make him re tire.” "How can he retire if he has nothing?' “He might have all he needs.” “You are thinking of Taras’ generous of fer.” “No. 1 know your father’s character too well to believe that be would accept any offer from Taras or from me that carries the smack of charity with it. It is only from his daughter that he could take a gift ami still feel independent. You owe him still for all he has bestowed on you.” “When the trouble came last year, I gave up all I had saved. It barely covered th bouse debts. I cannot rely on receiving te the end of papa’s life the salary Taras pays me. It is more than 1 ought to take. I know that, but I have sacrificed my own little share of pride with this very hope you point to. Oh. I have thought of it over ami over again. But how can I give papa a home when iny future is so uncertain? It would Ik* dreadful to take him away from business and then find that I had not enough to support him.” “But your own future need not be an un certain one. You have it in your power to offer him a home and surroundings as pleasant as the Grange below there—a home in which you might tie to him whai you now are to Taras.” “1 could do this—I!” she murmured in a tone of bewildered surprise. T n, after a moment’s pause, she exclaimed in ex postulation, "Mr. Kavanagh!” “No, I cannot let this hand go iiuiil you have heard me out and 1 know whether there is hope lor me or not,” he answered, with low and passionate firmness. “It is time to speak. I have been silent as long as silence was endurable—masking my feelings toward you hs only one wi ’imy earnest desire could. I love you, Judith! I have loved you for more than a year from the first day 1 met you I loved you hopelessly until George Gordon threw away the treasure that his soul was too base to value. Since then 1 have built every hope upon the possibility of making you my wife.” In that instant it flashed upon me i hat here was the secret motive for which we had been searching—a motive stronger I ban avarice. It was to rob George Gordon o' his sweetheart and his fortune that we had been kidnaped and sent to Siberia.
