In one hour the pnrly hnd coined the stnnll liny where the fltherincnV hut were built, and here wns found n nmnll government venue), on board which both men nnd horses were noon placed. Shortly after ward the prisoners were on their way be yond the power of exenpe for sonm of them, thinking thnt tin; whole pnnnRe, of nonie ninety to u bundled miles, wiim to be nindp by hind, hud held strumr hopes nf RettltiR nwiiy. In the incnntlnie .luck Martin hnd mnde bin wny back to the brie, where lie hnd Hinted the ntrniiRe event which hnd trntiHpircd. At llrnt tho pirates were frightened, feurliiK that they should all be taken, but when Martin came to nv lire them that I.tingtejr and his men were tnken for hornp-ntealliiR, their fears were mnntty removed, Paul heard the whole story, and bin nuBplclonti ut once fell upon HuriilnR ton. He remembered the letter he hnd disponed of, nnd which wns directed to Pedro Mnnrlqilex, and ho had since learn ed that Mntirlqiiez wan the uoveruor. But he hnd no Idea of whut It nil meant. It wan but unolher strange link in the mystic chain of circumstances thnt seem ed to hind that dark-vlanged man to his ptesetit position and to others nhout him. If Itiiriilneton hnd been the melius of gettinR these men entrapped, he must menu something more by It thnn their mere apprehension for crime. And if this were the fnct, then he must have meant from the tint to be taken with them, for ho hnd been very urgent of late to be allowed to accompany the shore par ties, pretending thnt It did him much good to roam nbout on land. But Paul's meditations were noon rut hort by another cause. It was now near turndown, nnd Just an the youth came up from the cabin, where he had been eat ing nupper nil nlone, the captain's boat wnn teen coming down the river ns swift ly an the onrsmeu could pull. The cap tain wan not there, and Paul'a heart link, for he feared that something ill bad befallen Mary. The coxswain leap ed on board the brig ns noon ns he ratne alongside, mid moving nt one up to where Paul stood, he snld: "You must go tip to tho ensile Imme diately. The young lady In worse.' Paul rushed to the cabin, and, having possessed himself of every kind of medi cine thnt could possibly be wanted, he hastened hack nnd descended to the bont, nnd in a moment more he win on his way up the river. CHAPTKll XVII. When Paul reached the ensile, the first person he met wo the faithful Olehewa. Tear not, my muster." she said, In n lone thnt no one else could hear; "she Is not much in daiiRer. She has ratified ngiiln, mul 1 made the ciiplaln belluvo thnt she would die If Mm did lint have medicine. I knew he. must send for ,ou, then. Keep up n good heart, for jon linvo some loynl friends who will not betray you. All Is not lost yet." Tim youth pressed Oleliewn's hand with Rralitiide, and then hastened nwny to Mary's mom, lie found Marl Larooii by her bed, while the maiden seemed to be asleep. Hut Ills step aroused her, mid she opened her eye-. She smiled ns she saw who had cnmc.uiid, putting out her hand, she xuid: "1 mil Rind you have come, my broth er." Paul started nt these hist two words, for he had almost forgotten them, A dagger' point reached his heart. Hut he stopped nut; he took the small while hand ami mixed It to his lips. "llow do you feel, Mnry'" he nsked, when ho had taken n seat by her head, I.nindu moving his own chnlr fuithcr down In order lo allow him room. "I ti in very weak, Paul," Paul felt of her pulto for miiiki inn incut-, mill then cmiihIiiciI her tongue. After this ho inn his hand over her lirow and temple:!, mid then said; "Ah, Mury, oit are very Iqw, nnd you must have the utmost care. If you man ngu to keep quiet and easy, 1 think I cun break mi the fever." The young surgeon found the circula tion fiee, mid nfler some lvllectlon hcj resolved for tho presept to administer Kmie light sedatives uiu "vatch their ef fect. This he accordingly did, and then lie left his p. 'lent under the charge of Otehewn, with full directions for her treatment. After this he and Laroon withdrew, and an soon an they reached the hall, Paul told the captain whut lmd occurred to Mr. I.nngley nnd hl pnrly. At llrnt Marl uns dumb with astonishment, but soon lil tongue found lti urv, and he qtieiloupi the youth upon every point; but the hitler could only tell wlint he had heard from .lack Murtln "llinl the pnrly hnd been captured by n band of soldier, nnd thnt Ihey had been iiccii'cd of horp stealing." "Why!" exclaimed. Mnrl. vehemently, "not ii single horte hntc I captured, or in) men, thnt did not belong to tile. There js .oiiip villainy In till. After pondering upon the thing for sunn time ho levilvi. I lo leave .Mary wholly In the charge of Paul, and leturu nt once to the brig lo see if he could lint hunt up something more concerning the hilslncxo. On the following morning Paul found Mury much belter, nnd he felt assured that she would hiic no fever If she re mained quiet. About 1(1 o'clock Mnrl came up, ami after he hint seen the In valid concluded to let Paul lemniii lo ntlend her, for he had planned to go to XngusilM mid lenrii why his men hnd been arreted. , Accordingly l.niooii hnstened nwny, and Paul was once more In wniuitiy with the being lie so wildly, so fondly loel. That evening ns the sun touched the western hurlon and poured ltd llond nf (.olclen sheen Into (he room, Paul snt by the bed nnd held Mary's hand within bin own, lie sat thus for some time In sllem e, when the maiden spoke! "Paul." she snld, In n low, tremulous Milce trembling from emotion rather than weakness "you are nut happy nt I. living found ii sister." The youth stinted, mid for n moment hl eyes were bent lo the lloor. Hut soon lie looked up, and while mi expres sion of more than common sadness rest ed on his handsome feature-', he replied: "It is not what I have found that moves me. It is a holy hteslug to own n slter'n love. Hut what hnve 1 lostV" "XotiB of my love, Paul," quickly erlpd Mary. "I can love you ever, my brother." "Oh, Mary, If you love me, speak not that iiiiiih. Call tnc Paul call me call me l,o,e. Oh, call nu uuythlug but that!" "And do you not lore your sister'" murmured the stricken girl, In soft, plain tive sndness. "Yes, yes, oh, yen; I love yon more tiiati I enn tell. Hut do not call me brother. Not now not now. At some time when my heart has arisen from Its grief, I may bear It. Hut not now." The youth pressed the white hnnd he held to his lips, and tho tears coursed freely down his cheeks. In thin position wns he when Otehewn entered the room. "My master." she said, addressing Paul, "you must not fear, for nil is not yet lost. 1 have been long prepared for nny emergency, and Mnrl l.aroon can not succeed In nny plan nf wlckediic-s he may undertake, save to keep my mistress here n prisoner; and 1 do not think he can do thnt." Pnul returned her n look nf gratitude, but he mnde her no Immediate reply In words. The sun was now down, and the shades of evening were gathering about the place. The youth saw that his fair patient needed repose, and leaving with Otehewn Instructions how to ndmlnistet the medicine, he left the apart men t and walked nut into the garden, and there he paced to nud fro until lung after the darkness had come. "Hhe my sister!" he murmured to him self, stopping suddenly mid clasping his hands together. "I know the mini can lie most basely lie; but this may bo true. Alas, I fear it is for my own memory holds Nome such picture. Well do I remember of calling her my sister, yet It may be false. The man with whom I lived wns not my father, for Hum ington hns told mu as much; nnd then I remember that I called him uncle. Oh, why hns this come to Idnst my life plan? Why has this heavy baud of anguish fallen on me? Hiirnliigtnii might tell nu something, but he is my enemy and h Is a prisoner, besides," Paul stopped, for nt that Instant lie felt n light touch upon his shoulder. He turned mid xnw Otehewn. "What seek yo hereV" he quickly ask ed. "To tell you a secret," nnswercd the dnrk-skluued girl, nt the sumo time cast ing her eyes quickly about. "A. secret'" repented Puul. "Ay," whispered Otehewn; "and when you know It you tuny be on your guard, though you must trust me mpro than yourself. Mnrl Lnroou means to make uiv mistress his wife an soon as he comes buck." "What!" ejaculated the young surgeon, starting ns though he hud beeu shot. "How know you this'" "Hrcauso I heard him say no; nnd he hns sent for n pricit. The priest will come here ami remain until the maiden is well enough to be married." Paul started nwny with his hands clusped. The girl hesitated a moment, nud then she lidded In ii thrilling whis per: "Walt until (he time comes. Even the base mini's life is not wortli that maid en's happiness." flutlire of th M-nrrhlng blast, nnd I.n rooii ordered a lire to be built In Ilia great sitting room; nnd nfler this was done, Paul nud Mnry repaired thither tfi supper, tho riipluillMinvlltg Invited them to cut wllli him. The meal hnd been eaten, and the tnhle moved back, itnd both Paul mid Mary hnd tnken scats near the bla.liig tire, when thcieciime it 1 1 alarm from the great gate. Mnrl l.nroon's fiit emotion was one of fenr, for he showed It In hi every motion: but he soon overcame Unit, and by thp time the porter entered, h wns quite calm. "What I ItV" he nkcd of the servant. "A stranger, lr, who nk-t hopttulltj for the night." "Then let him In." The servant withdrew, niid ere long the door of the sitting room was opened, mill the stranger wns ushered In, lie was a iuedluml7.eil iiiuti, or ruthet of medium height: but In hi frame he was moic full nnd bulky thnn usual, though not tending at nil lo obesity. Ills features were regular nnd handsome, his eyes of a dark haxel. and very brllllniit. his hnlr a dark milium in color, with much mixture of silver, nnd In ago he nnncared nbout fifty. The only pecu liarity about him was a peculiar squint of the eyes; or rather n tendency In n crossing glnmc. one of the eye turning differently from It neighbor. Hut this was pot noticed at nil llmrs: It wns only when he looked sideways that It wns very apparent. Further than this ho seemed to be a man who hnd seen much trouble, mid his fcntitres hnd assumed n melancholy cat. "Have j on traveled far':" nsked Mart, after the stranger had become sciitod. "r'rotn Nagasaki since yesterday." re turned he. "This Is the place of Captain I.nrooii, I think? Are you the gentle man?" "I nnt, sir," returned Mnrl, beginning to eye the strnnger with Interest. "What may I call your iiaiue?'' "l'ox, sir .Inmes Fox." "Ah an American? From what part did ymi come?" usked the pirate, now showing palpable signs of uneniiic. "From the east." , Marl Idiroon wns not the only one who watched that mnii with more than t:ual interest. Paul also eyed him mix loilsly, and once or twice whvn Fox spoke the youth started us though some long-forgotten memory hnd suddenly come to him. Hut the guest seemed to notice nothing of this. He had simply examined the counteiinnces of those pres ent when he first sat down. The servnnts were culled and directed to set the table; nnd while this wns be ing done, I.nrooii engaged hit guest In conversation. "You may deem me over curious." snld Marl, after some remarks hnd been pass ed nbout the weutlier, mid no on; "but wo seldom see n traveler on this road, save our fishermen und pensniits." "Oh. it's natural that you should be curious about It," quietly miswrred the other, "nnd I'm sure I should be so my self. It wns pleasnnt when I left Na gasaki and I only came to look nt the country, and perhaps hnd sonic' opening for business." "Business? What business yould you litid here?" "limiting for Jewf Is." "You'll find but few lure. None at nil, 1 should think." (To he cniitllimd.) I. R. CARTER. J. a CARTGK. Z. R.
