Thomas Keoflbey nnd Jils wife havo
taken a houso on tho O'lno Hill road about
two miles for tho village. They havo

tfto south for several years, and does not
know that her father Is a professional
criminal. 8he has many strango charac
teristics, one of which Is tho powor of at
tracting and taming- whlto butterflies,
which follow her about everywhere she
troes. She Is notlocd by young Mrs. Oollls
NVood, the wife of the cashier of the vil
lage bank, who Induces her to attend a
class of girls which meets Sunday after
noons nrar Dorllla's home. Dorllla and
Mrs. Wood become quite Intimate, and tho
former often spends the afternoon at tho
latter's house, although her parents are
not aware of It. Dorllla confesses an at
tachment for one "Mlkey," who resides
tit her house. lie Is really one of a band
of burglars who are planlns with Thomas
Keasbey to break Into the bank by boring
through the floor above and the steel

obtain a plan of tha rooms above the bank,

daughter to visit them. He mukes an ex

-- PART III.
When the men began to push their
chalra about on the bare parlor floor,
however, ehe rose and fled shortly into
lier room, closing1 her door and locking
it behind her. Then she flung herself
on her bed nnd wept wildly, wringing
her hands and asking herself what sho
She heard the clock strlko twelve.
There was a sound of doors and win
dows opening" and shutting. Then she
heard tha men tramping off. Hoarse
voices uttered a few words under her
window. She knew that the last details
of the elaborate plot were now ar
ranged. Then there was a dead sil
ence. The very pines seemed to wait
Once she sprang up determined to
fly to the village nnd rouse up her
friend. She would tell Mrs. Wood of
the danger that threatened her hus
band and the hank. Then they could
go together and drive the men away.
The next day, the hole which had been
made through the celling could be
filled up, and the Keasbeys and Mlkey
and tho rest could vanish quietly from
Thus reasoned the child within her,
but the woman there laughed aloud at
such silliness. "It would mean the
whole town awake and excited," said
the wiser mentor. "It would mean
twenty years in prison, perhaps, for
your father and for Mlkey."
As she lay upon her bed, clutching
the counterpane, and shuddering and
groaning aloud, her father's kindness
to' her through all her life passed like
a panorama before her. His old ten
derness and goodness blotted out for
a moment all his sternness and all the
vices which had made her love him. less
"It is for my sake that he is risking
his life and his freedom tonight," she
wept. "Ho wants to make a lady of
It seemed as though real and sinewy
hands caught her heart between them
and compressed it until it ached. She
could hardly breathe. She rushed to
the window for air.
"And Mlkey!" she panted. "I couldn't
give up t&Ilkey! I don't bo much
mind tho others. They are bad through
and through. But my father isn'.t.
Anyway, ho has always been good to
me. And Mlkey is good. That is what
my father meant when he said that
Mlkey hadn't any nerve. Mlkey said
he was going to get Into somo sort of
'regular business. I know now what
he meant. He knows that I could never
bear to havo him doing things like
this. He understands me. If he only
sets along right tonight, he will turn
over a new leaf and become an honest
man and father, too."
Then she thought of the sisters at
the convent, and their peaceful, vir
tuous lives. If they had quarrels or
troubles they had never let her know
it. She imagined their dismay it they
should learn that her father was a
She thought,' too, of Mrs. Collls Wood.
Her beautiful, innocent face seemed to
rise out of the shadows and confront
the girl only an arm's length away,
nnd her eyes were brimming1 with re
"I loved you. I trusted you," the
eweet mouth seemed to say, "and how
havo you rewarded me? I did every
thing In my power for you. I would
have done more if you would have let
me-r-and yet you havo given over the
one I loved best to robbers perhaps
to murderers. You have let thieves
Bteal my property, and ithat of many
other blameless people. Is this right?"
On the moment, the girl heard a flut
tering in the darkness. Black as it was,
Bhe could dimly discern In it the shape
of tho great white moth, which had
come to her when sho had sat with her
mother on the kitchen steps. She had
kept it In1 her room and had fed it ever
since". Now It had flown away. She had'

before. The superstition which had
been hred in her by her sequestered life
and by the singular peculiarity which
marked her, awoke with a passionate
"Come back!" she cried, with a
shriek, which she instantly regretted,
for tlfic feared that it might have
awakened her mother but the moth
had gone. She could hear its great
wings beating tho darkness Just be
yond her reach.
"I must do it! It is right!" she mur
mured over and over again. Sho ran
into the hall and listened at her moth
er's door. Mrs. Keasbey was breathing
hard, and had evidently heard noth
ing. Dorllla envied her mother the
power to sleep at such a time. Then
the girl took off her shoes, weeping bit
terly, but with unfaltering movements
carrying out her determination. As
she crept into the shadows of the for
est and stooped to refasten her shoes,
something brushed the air beside her.
It was a great white moth. -- felt
sure that It was the one which had left
her. Before she had risen, it had set
tled and was swaying upon the looso
ringlets above her forehead.
Two hours later, she was lying, more
dead than alive, upon the lace-covered
bed of Mrs. Collls Wood. A serving
woman stood over her, fanning her.
There was a sudden rush of garments.
White and startled, much as she had
seen it in her vision on the hill, the
face of her young teacher looked Into
"Can you bear it, Dorllla? Oh, I
wonder if I ought to tell you! You
must know it soon, but are you strong
enough to hear it now?"
The girl nodded. All the fierceness
and selfishness of her nature seemed
gone. She was melted down to utter
"My husband has been brought home.
He Is unconscious, but tho doctor says
that ho will be all right before long
and you have saved his life!"
She could not go on for tho tears
Which choked her.
"Well?" sold Dorllla, raising herself
on her elbow. Her voice showed that
her nerves were strained to the last
pitch of endurance.
"But your father you know there
was a hand-to-hand fight between his
men and ours and he was hurt, but
not seriously. He will have to, oh, my
poor Dorllla! he will probably havo to
serve a long term In prison. And and
nobody was shot but one he was
bhot dead the one you called Mlkey."
Dorllla fell liack on tho bed. Sho
had heard now all that she wanted to
Presently she sprang up and began
with quivering hands to arrange her;
"You better lie still,' the serving
woman warned her. "You don't look
as if you'd oughter stand up. You'll
faint away, first you know."
"Dorllla!" cried Mrs. Collls Wood',
throwing her arms around the white
and agitated girl, "don't think of leav
ing me! You are going to live always
with mo nowl"
"No," said Dorllla, with the old dark
look Hashing from her wild eyes. "I
love you, and I always shall but I
can't live In tho world any more. Don't
you see? My heart is broken. I nm
young, I know and you think I can
get over things but I can't. I havo
tried to do right, as you told me and
It has broken my heart."
"But you are needed in the world!
We need women like you bravo and
unselfish, and with quIcK minds to
plan and do."
"No, I can't stand It," insisted tho
girl, wearily, but with a trace of her
old fire. "I will go and get my mother.
They will take us both there at tho
convent. Just help me to get back tq
tho convent. It will be the kindest
thing you can do for me. I want to
live there always with the sisters. You
don't bellevo In masses for souls, or
prayers for tho dead but don't you seo
I've got to? That's what I shall do
now offer them all the rest of my life
for" sho stopped, and the strained
look gave way on her face, "I tell you
my heart Is broken."
She threw her arms around her
friend, and they wept together.
When they had bound up Thomas
Keasbey's wounds and led him away,
it was broad daylight. His head was
bandaged, and ho had one arm in a
sling, but he could see, and his mind
was perfectly clear. Ever since the first
onslaught of the constables upon them,
ho had been casting about for some
explanation of the failure of the plans
upon which ho had expended his best
thought for many months. He could
not devise any.
The cashier's house was only a few
doors away from tho hank. As, held
between two of his captors, Thomas
Keasbey shu ed along past this house,
he glanced downward. 'There lay a
great white moth, trampled and dead.
He shook himself free for an Instant,
and with his sound arm picked up the
soiled, exquisite thing. Then he turned
furiously to the man beside him.
"It was a girl that gave us away, I
reckon, wasn't it?"
The man hesitated a moment. Then
he said: "Yes."
Thomas Keasbey gavo a groan. His
rough face grew deadly whlto and he
leaned plteously upon tho men.
"I don't understand It," he muttered
brokenly. "I don't understand it"
How could he see that while he'had
lived beside his daughter every day
and while ho had been building his
sordid castles for her, sho had passed
from his power into the power of those
higher and everlasting forces which
find their best field In natures like
And while he wore his prison dress
and broke stone with tt pick, she walked
back and forth in the shaded convent
garden, praying for his soul and that

of love and: mercy. Her sick spirit

peace, Dorllla spent her life within the

Some Facts Afooirt
Ounr Postal Service
Extracted From a Recent
Of all the executive departments of
tho government tho postofflco depart
ment is the one with which the people
are the most familiar. In addition to
collecting nnd transporting tho mall
matter of the country, it Is tho great
est express company In th'o world.slnco
It has an ofllce at every cross road,
carrying merchandise cheaper than the
riders. Tho registry system provides
a cheap service and it is a great bank
ing system of the country. Its drafts
arc the best and cheapest and they
ara the best commercial paper. Its
notes ara gilt edged, and havo never
gone to protest. The post Is an old In
stitution of tho world. It runs back
beyond the memory of man1, and be
yond tho record of human history. Its
antiquity Is shown by the reference
to It In the scriptures, particularly hi
Chronicles. It Is recorded that tho
letters were sealed with clay, In tho
book of Job. Messengers were known
In tho first century. They were sent
from Palestine to tho seats of Jearnlng
The offlco of master of tho post was
Instituted, by Henry tho Eighth of
England, and this gives date to the
origin of postmaster. Tho Roman em
pire was probably tho first to organize
a postal service. Tho post originated
from the custom of Roman couriers,
when they waited for tho dispatches.
Coming closer home, when the Spanish
conquerors Invaded Peru they found
tho people had a Bystom to forward
dispatches. Buildings wcro erected
less than flvo mlle9 apart, at which
couriers wore stationed. They wero
dressed In peculiar ways and wero se
lected especially for their fidelity,
courage and endurance. Tho distance
to bo covered was small, and they
were given ample time to rest. They
went over the ground very swiftly,
nnd messages wero carried at the rate
of 150 miles a day. What a Vast dif
ference between that age and th'o
present. Then tho government only
had tlie right to use tho service. Now
the mail of the government Is lost sight
of in tho vast amount of correspond
ence of the common people.
THE PRINTERS' ART.
Trlntlng Is known as the art preser
vative of all arts. Another greater art
preservative Is that of the postofllce
df.partment. The letters of great men
and women are forming a special type
of literature. Were It not for print
ing those wlso and witty letters would
not endure for all time. It Is also true
of the postofllce that carries them
safely. The letters of James Russell
Lowell form one of tho greatest publi
cations of tha century, and they are
hardly to be surpassed. This Is due
in no small measure to tho fidelity
and efficiency of the American post
office. Only think of the letters of
Lamb, Sidney Smith, Walter Scott,
Dickens, Thackeray and tho great re
ligious leader, Philips Brooks, and
realize how much worso off the people
would have been If thbso letters had
gone to tho dead letter office.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE SYSTEM.
Mr. James then spoke of the develop
ment of the present postal system.say
lng It began with the proclamation of
Charles I In 1635. "There was literally
no postofflco In Great Britain then,"
he said. "Merchants had their letters
left at a central ofllce or tavern and
then they were conveyed by messen
gers. In 1632 Thomas Neal received
letters patent to tako charge of alt tho
postoflloes In the colonies and In 1712
hia charge terminated.
"The first postofflco In America was
established In New York 223 years ago.
In 1710 the postmaster general of Great
Britain designated New York as the
chief letter ofllce in this country. Put
the postofllce service in those days did
not begin to meet tho demands of the
people until that able and many-sided
man, Franklin, was made postmaster
at Philadelphia and later postmaster
general for the colonies. He held the
position for several years. He crushed
In the newspaper monopolies and com
menced to advertise letters remaining
In the postofllce and introduced tho
fast malls. Instead of a mall between
New York and Philadelphia once a
week In summer and twice a month In
winter, he Improved tho roads and tho
business principles of the postofllce
department until a commission was
sent over from England to Inquire into
Franklin's doings and audit his ac
counts. During the flrst four years
the office became upwards of flOO in
debt, but afterwards the service be
gan to be profitable. At the tlmo of
the commissioner's visit tho revenue
yielding three times as much as was
received by tho crown from tho ser
vice In Ireland.
IN THE EARLY DAYS.
"On tho commissioner's report to
England Franklin was removed from
ofllce. One of the first acts of tho
continental congress was to appoint a
postmaster general at a salary of $1,000
a year and ho was allowed to appoint
a clerk at a salary of $340 a year.
During the revolution postal matters
were lost sight of. The earnings of
tho New York office from 1775 to 1776
wero only $550. Tho entire revenue of
the department was something less
than $5,000. Mr. Hazard stated to con
gress that he was obliged to leave
tho service in New York on account
of the frequent removals of tho army,
which subjected him to great expense
and fatigue. This Is the flrst lnstanco
of a traveling postofllce In tho United
States, and this man became post
master general of the colonies.
"After Washington's inauguration
the organization of the postofllce de
partment followed, and Samuel Os
good was appointed postmaster gener
al, Mr. Osgood had no clerk. There
were 75 postofflces and 1,785 miles of
post routes. Tho revenues wero $37,
835, and the expenses $32,140, leaving
a surplus of $5,937. At the close of
the year ending Dec. 1, 1892, thero were
07,667 postofflces, with 363 millions' of
miles traversed: the cost of service
was $42,000,000, the revenues $01,000,
000, and thero was a deficit of, over
THE TWO PERIODS.
"Tho history of tho postal servlco
Js divided into two periods; tho flrst
from 1784 to 1834, and tho second from
1834 to 1684, when tho railroads be
came the great mediums for tho trans
portation of tho malls. In 1802 the
United States ran Its own line of stages
from Now York to Philadelphia. In
three years tho profits wero $12,000.
Through an net of congress every road
became a post road In 1838. Route
agents then complained that nearly
every night dead bodies wero placed
In the mall cars, and an order was
promptly Issued forbidden tho unwhole
some Intermingling of correspondence
Lecture By Ex-Postmaster
and cadavers. Itr 1854 itho rato of post
age was reduced nnd some said tho
country would bo bankrupted.
"Thero are several claimants for tho
honor of starting tho railway service.
It was first started between Quincy
and St, Joseph, when tho malls wero
distributed on tho trains. Two years
later Colonel Armstrong, of Chicago,
under Montgomery Blair, orrangod for
tho service, and becamo tho first rail
way superintendent. Ho was succeed
ed by Colonel George S. Bangs, pro
gressive reformer. Armstrong built
the, framework, while Bangs clothed
It with flesh. Ho started In to Im
prove It on business principles. He re
moved the sluggards and rewarded the
Industrious, and well might ho bo
called the father of civil service re
form. Ho suggested a mall train be
tween New York and Chicago In 24
hours, and ho was authorized to ne
gotiate with tho Central-Hudson and
the Lake Shore railroads, but there
was no appropriation, and the older
Vanderbllt did not think It would bo
a success. W. H. Vanderbllt was fa
vorably disposed towards the project,
and by an agreement with Mr. Bangs
it was stipulated that Mr. Vander
bllt should build 20 of the finest and
best equipped cars over seen on this
planet The men were picked, and the
servlco was marvelous. The train was
run for ten months, and then tho gov
ernment took tho malls from three
states, from these roads and gave them
to oth'er lines, and Mr. Vanderbllt and
Thomas H. Scott, of the Pennsylvania
road, declined to continue 'the service.
IN NEW YORK.
"When tho service was flrst started
between Now York and Washington,
In 1864, Henry G. Pearson, nftorward
postmaster In New York, was tho clerk.
From 13 hours In '04 the service has
been reduced to 5 hours In 1895. Let
ters are transferred between New York
and Chicago In 20 hours. While 25 days
were necessary to carry them In 1860
to San Francisco, the time has been
reduced to four days and a few hours
In 1896. Judging from what has been
accomplished In 30 years ho would In
deed bo a prophet who could pay what
will be donp In the future.
"It Is a sngulnr fact that up to and
Including Lincoln's administration, the
postmaster generals who havo written
their names on the pages of history
because of their great achievement In
the developments of the fast mall
facilities of the United States were
printers or Journalists. It has some
times seemed -to me that thero la a
sort of mutual affinity between the
professions, of Journalism and post
masters. Certainly our own history
suggests that. You may remember
that tho most distinguished of Ameri
can printers, Benjamin Franklin, was
postmaster at Philadelphia, and our
first postmaster general.
"In considering the great service we
should not forget that the stamo In a
certain form has boon used for over
400 years. In Paris slips were used
and marked 'Postpaid.' When stamps
wcro flrst used in tho United States
they were of two denominations, five
and ten cents. In 1851 they wero re
placed by the one, three and twelve
cent stamps. In 1S35 tho ten-cent
stamp was Issued, and soon after a
complete series from five-cent up to
ninety cents." Tho speaker then re
ferred to tho recent stamp chain fraud
of an Illinois German, and It was esti
mated that ho had gathered, In no less
than 100,000,000 stamps."
