The policeman demands time before en 1 forcing Lindsay's claim. They turn to leave the store, and encounter a Hindu, who ha recognized Lindsay from the street. Tho Hindu takes' the sailor to hi rooms, and tells him that the box got to the pawnbroker by reason -of the murder of its possessor, who. with. Lindsay and the Hindu, "was part owner.

'M ISS BRICEl" A volco replied irom above. "Yes, Miss Driscoll." "Miss Brlce. I'm en gaged in my sitting-room and am not to be disturbed. If you hear the shop bell ".come down yourself. And don't inter rupt mo on any account." "Very well. Miss Driscoll." Then tho milliner came back, closed the door and resumed her seat. But ithls time her look was earnest and her tone brief us she confronted the man of law. .."Now, then. Mr. Baxendale." Bhe said, tell me all about It. You say that the poor fellow has left me all his money?" Here, ma'am, is the will, executed three months ago," answered tho solici tor. nrOdUclllIT a ldral.lnnklnr- rinnn. jnent. -it is a Very simple will Finney had no relations, and he devises every thing of which he was nnaxenspri in you absolutely." ' "I'm sure I'm very much obliged to him," said Miss Driscoll. "And. pray, how much might he have to leave? not much, I expect." Mr. Baxendale coughed behind his hand. He drew out another paper from his pocket, put on a pair or gold-framed I pince-nez, and, glanced the paper 'over. "Well, ma'am," said he. "the truth is. my late client was about a cute a man as any person I ever knew. His nlght-watchmanshlp was a mero noth ing In truth, Finney had a money . lending business which ho ran under the name of Crowther you've heard of it. I dare say and ho had done well out of it. I am not absolutely certain," con tinued Mr. Baxendale, as ho scrutinized his paper, "but I think I may say that there will be at least 20.000 pounds not less, at anv rate." A sudden vision flashed across Miss DHbcoH's mind a vision of Castle Cleerycrow, with the Shannon flowing beneath the cray walls and green lawns, a vlslo u the old debts paid off and the family honor restored. She rose and paced rapidly across tho little par-, lor, and It was with an effort that she retained her composure. "I can't help feeling this, Mr. Baxen dale," she said, looking at the solicitor with glistening eyes. "I've been work ing ever since I was a girl of twenty one to pay off old family debts, and it ' would have taken me nearly ten yeara longer to do It. Wow I can do it nt once thanks to that poor fellow's gen erosity and If It's all true." "It's as true as the blessed gospel, Miss Driscoll returned Mr. Baxendale. "It may take a few weeks to settle everything, but your fortune will very soon be In your hands. And the amount I mentioned Is the very lowest esti mate of It I should say, the full value Is nearer fSo.OOO than f20,000." "I shall be obliged it you will act for me, Mr. Baxendale," said Miss Dris coll. "Perhaps, If I call upon you in a day or two, you'll explain everything." My services, ma'am, are at your command," replied tho solicitor. "There Is one matter which needs Immediate attention. The glass works people need the cottago which my late client used, and they want tho furniture to bo cleared out. As the furniture Is nqw yours, vou had better look It over, and give Brown, tho auctioneer, nn order to remove and sell It. It's of no use to you ' mish Driseoll concurred in this sug gestion, and said that she would walk round the glass works that night, in spect tho property, and give Instruc tions as to Its disposal. Mr. Baxendale thereupon shook hands with her three times, congratulated her more fervently than over, and took his leave. CHAPTER XIV. Miss Driscoll Finds the Diamonds. A: BOUT 7 o'clock that evening Miss Driscoll, who, during tho process of taking tea alono in her par lor, had thought of many things and had resolved several lines of con duct, left her establishment to the care of the general seivant and set out for the cottago In tho yard of tho glass works in order to Inspect tho late Mr. Finney s household effects. She v-alkcd quickly through the town and along tho riverside to the glass vvoiks wharf At the side door by which Finney had admitted himself and Hoi 11ns to his place on the previous even ing Bhe followed out certain Instruc tions given her by Mr. Baxendale, and rang the bell. Tho summons was pres ently lesponded to by a man, who at sight of Miss Driscoll stopped back, held open tho door and invited her to enter. "1 promised Mr. Baxendale that I would call this evening In qrder to look over the furniture left by poor Finney," said Miss Driscoll, In explanation of her presence "Yes'm," answered tho man "Mr. Baxendale sent round to tell me. I m the now watchman In Finney's place." "I hope you'll not meet with a similar fate," said Miss Driscoll. "I'll tako good cure o' that, ma'am," replied the new night watchman, with considerable confidence. "If Finney hadn't been up to some queer game or other he'd have slept In his own bed to night " What game was he up to, then?" asked Miss Driscoll. "Nay, that's what nobody'l! ever know,' answered the man. "But he'd no business where he was, nor to do what he was doing." "Wh, what was he doing?" asked Mlsa Driscoll, who as sole residuary leg- SERIAL STORY. atce of the departed felt rather moro than ordinary curiosity as to Finney's last deeds. "I thought he fell Into the tank by accident" The new night wntohman. who was comfortably attired In his shirt sleeves a sure sign that ho was enjoying the evening In a luxurious Btate of ease and who had a short clay plpo In full blast, spat on the cinders at his feet in. a fashion that bespoke him a true philosopher. "Why, so he did, In the end." he re plied: "but what had ho gone there for? What I say Is just this here, ma'am that there was a considerable nmount of myatory about our departed frlond'3 latter end. "Joo Clarke It was as sco It happen, and Joe Clarko has been drlnkln' all day to sort o forget what It was he scon. I'll lay out that If you was to walk Into the bar parlor o' the Green Man. Just across the wharf there, 'at you'd And Joe Clarko telling the story for the hundredth tlmo this blessed day, and maybe coloring It a bit. 'cos of the drink he'B taken very free. But I heard Joe Clarko tell what ho seen within ten minutes of the time when he seen It." "And what did Joe Clarko see?" asked Miss Driscoll. , "What Joe Clarko Been," answored tho new night watchman, "was this here: He comes Into tho yard at a time when ho hadn't no call to be there, and gets in by a way only known to him and a fow of his pals, his motive being to have a sleep In a warm corner of tho kiln, him having been out Ledsham way doing a bit of a poaching expedition, and not wantln' to wako up his old woman at unreasonable hours, and ho sees Finney carrying a heavy Back up tho planks to a spot overlooking ono of the kilns and a-tryln' to sling the, sack over into the pot, and ho calls out to him and axes what ho was doing there, and Finney turns sharp round to speak to him, or seemingly to do so, and ho slips on his wooden leg, and over tho whole lot goes, sack and everything. "And Joe Clarke, ho says that Fin ney gave ono yell that he'll hear to his dying day. and that's why he's been trying to get drunk oil day nt tho Green Man an' 1 reckon It'll take some doing, for he's fair upset i' hlB mind by what he seen and heard, is Joe Clarke.' "What could he have in the sack?" said Mlsa Driscoll, speculatively. "Something that he wanted to destroy, I should think." "Bummat o' that sort, no doubt," an swered the night watchman. "But Lord sakes, who'll bo able to teU7 There's nowt 'at every went Into one o' them pots o' metal 'at ever come out It's like hell itself In one o' them, axin' your pardon, ma'am." "I should like," said Miss Driscoll, "to see the place where the accident oc curred tho place where Finney fell In, you know. Is It possible to do so?" "Not tho exact spot, ma'am. It isn't," answored the night watchman; " 'cause the malster had It bricked in this morning. But I can give you a peep at poor Finney's scpulcher as you might call It, in a way of speaking, through ono of the drawholcs, If you'll Btep this way." Miss Driscoll followed her obliging Kulde across tho yard to one of the curiously shaped buildings, at whose architecture she had often wondered on the occasions whereori she had tak en her walks abroad In tho country and had gazed back at the town from some slight eminence. She found herself under a sort of shed, high above which rose a species of sugar-loaf-shaped chimney, at the base of which was tho furnace, access to which was gained by a number of small holes now protected by Iron doors. Although these doors were all shut, the heat, which penetrated brick and Iron, was terrible in Its fierceness, and Miss Driscoll found herself gasp ing for breath. "What fearful heat!" she said. "Do tho mon -work in this?" "This Is nowt," said the night watch man, "to what It Is when all the draw hole doors Is open. Here, take hold of this, ma'am, and shade your face with It." He handed Miss Driscoll a square of thick blue glass, set In a strong wood frame, to which was attached a holder. When she had placed this protection bpfore hor face In tho desired way, tho night watchman seized an iron rod which lay handy to open the door of the drawhole. "There," he said, "if that ain't like what they tells you nt the chapel about the bottomless pit, I don't know what is!" Such a burst of heat as Miss Driscoll could not have imagined puffed out of the drawhole and seemed to take her breath away. She kept her position bravely and, peering through the protecting- blue glass, looked Inside the furnace. What she saw seemed to her the very incarnation of the spirit of fire a mol ten, seething masB of motal, glowing at white heat, with subtle, wicked-looking curling flames twisting and darting over Its surface. The mero thought of what must happen to a human being who foil into such a sea of living flame made Miss Driscoll shudder, and a sudden feeling of nausea came over her. She stepped hastily back and dropped the blup glass. "It's awful." she said, shuddering again, while the night-watchman closed the door of the drawhole. "I couldn't have conceived it. What a terrible fate!" "Ah," said the night-watchman, la conically. "If vou'd drop a coin In thero it'd melt up like a lump o" sugar In a cup of tea." They walked back across the yard to the cottage in silence; Miss Driscoll was meditating opon the generous Finney's hapless fato; the new night-watchman was wondering whether, as ho was now to take up his auarters In the cottage, he had better not buy a bit of tho fur niture there cheap. Ho broached the matter to Miss Driscoll as they entered the cottage together. "I did hear from Mr. Baxenclale'a young man as how Flnnev had loft all his belongings to you. ma'am," he said bv way of Introducing tho subject. "I expect there's more nor ono thing in tho cottage here that you'll have no use for, and as I'm going to live in it I thought we might make a bit of a bar gain." "I was thinking of selling everything," replied MIbb Driscoll. "I don't suppose thero is anything at all that I shall re quire. Anything that you wioh to buy you may have at a reasonable price."

And the trees grew so thick beforo his door that no ono could get past them. Besides, In tho woods were big black dogs which drovo away all who ventured near. Back of tho giant's home was a tall mountain of beautiful pink stono which would shfnc at night far out over tho whole country, so that people who saw the light would tremble at the thought of tho bad giant who spent his life at the foot of this pllo of stone. But he did not live alone, for he had as his workmen In the mountain dozens of boys that had run away from their homes and strayed on his land. These boy he would put to work in tho morning at tho Btone, and nt night they all slept in a cold dungeon without any cover. They could not get away, for the fierce dogs drove them back, and then the giant would put chains around their legs to keep them. One of these boys, who was named Arthur, was a delicate lad, and he would rest when at work, and when the giant was not looking, watch the clouds hurrying by In huge shapes. To him they looked like castles, and no fond did ho grow of studying the clouds, that at last he could see within them the llttls fairies In their sky homes. Oni day the queen of the fairies saw the small boy at work and noticed that he would stop to gazo at her home as she sailed by. So he caught a passing breeze and floated down to whero the boys were at work on the stone moun tain, "I saw you today for the first time," alio said to Arthur. "It Is a shame for that wicked giant to work you poor boys so. I have no power over him in his present form, but I know of 011.5 way In which I could aid you." "Oh! we will do anything you sa," cried the hoy. "If you will only get us awny from here." "Well, It Is this, said the fairy queen "The bey who undertakes to save the others must not be afiatd to risk his own life." "Well. I will do that," replied Ar thur. "I am wilUng to tako any risk to get v out of here." "My plan Is this," continued the queen: "I cannot hurt the giant as he Is, but If he is changed into a bird I will have power over him. I will turn you into a sparrow, and when he sees that he will likely change himself Into a hawk to chase you. If he does, I can place my magic power on him and keep him forever In that form; but I -Tb HIM THEY -( N LPOKED.UK VSVn CaSTLES can turn you back again Into a boy." I am willing," said Arthur, and It was agreed to trv tho Very next morn ing. Ho when the giant followed 'the f v" to their work tho next day tho jairv Queen came sailing' down and touched Arthur with her shining wand. iU..anJ,mlUln n waa a twittering Bpar oVl' When the giant saw this he turned ?!.' ,cn ne turned around seven times and said some strange words. Suddenly no seemed to blow away and thero In his place was a big. ugly liawk, which ?' t ."yhnc after the bird. Fast flew the little sparrow who was really Ar thurbut faster came tne hawk. And the bov feared that he would be caught . nu nnii'u ueiorc me lairy wueeu Z,a work her charm on the hawk. o iurnea ana sauea oy tno uueen. As he passed her she told him to rise higher, which ,ho did, and the hawk followed. As tho hawk came floating by her feet the Queen threw on him some magic powder, which settled over all his feathers In a fine dust. Then she waved her wand over tho sparrow and It becamo a boy again. "Farewell, hawk," she called aa she and Arthur walked down to where tho boys worked. "Farewell forever. You are a hawk and a hawk you will be to your dying day." And It was true, for tho wicked giant never became a man again, but remained a big. uglv bird the rest of his life. But Arthur and the queen set the boys free and after taking the bags of gold thev found In the storeroom with them, thev never returned to the giant's part of the country again. Little Arthur, who had saved the rest, took with him a box of Jewels to his mother, which made them so rich that they lived ever afterward in great splendor and he never ran away from his home again.
