"1 must. CiR. Beggars can't bo | choosers," I answered bitterly. "After all. dearest girl, it will be only for a few months." "A year, I'm afraid. Harry, from wliat father says." ?> "Well, since he has fonnd mo this work I mustn't shirk it. Goodby, xny own girl." What misery does poverty entail on loving hearts I Cicely Fleming and I had loved one another for years?ever since, indeed, we were children togeth er. I had spent the few hundreds my father left me in completing my engi neering education in Germany. Then I cauie home, confident of finding work. Bnt nothing came my way in spite of every endeavor. At last Mr. Fleming's interest procured me a place as assistant engineer in building a new lighthouse on the dangerous island of Skryn. oil the west coast of Ireland. I parted with Cis on a Tuesday. Fri day morning found me on the small sailing craft which was the only means of communication between Skryn and the mainland. Soon we landed, and I waded ashoro and walked up the steep path to the top of the cliff. As I reached the snmmit a man met me, and, holding out his hand, said: "Good morning! You're Mr. Brydon, I suppose? I'm Callan!" He was not so ill looking?at least as far as features went It was not till later that I discovered the peculiar ro pulsion he inspired me with was due to his eyes. These were extraordinarily dark and piercing, but across the iris of one was a remarkable pale yellow mark which, combined with a very Blight squint, gave him an absolutely uncanny appearance. Next day I was up betimes, boiled my big kettle, made my coffee and was out on the reef before Callan was visi ble. The men were already at work. I spoke to them, but either they could not or would not talk. Presently Callan came out, scrambling along the reef. What a burly brute he looked in the clear morning sunlight! He spoke to the men with extraordinary roughness. They evidently feared him, and, I soon saw, bated him too. This puzzled mu till I knew him bet ter. But a very few days opened my eyes. If ever there lived a man without one grain of pity in his composition, it was Eugene Callan. He seemed to take an absolute delight in cruelty for cruel ty's sake. There was a boy called Bar ney McKeown who acted as servant to Callan. The way Callan bullied that unfortunate boy was appalling. I won dered how the others could see such things happening. A few weeks later we had a storm which stopped all work. I sat in my hut reading moBt of the day and listening to the gusts that roared at times like thunder. Once or twice I fancied a shriller sound mingled with the gala Lato in the afternoon it lulled a lit tle, and suddenly there came, distinct and clear to my ears, a scream of pain. I sprang up and listened. Again and again the cry sounded out. It was from | Callan's hut it came. I sprang up, rushed across and flnng open the door. The sight that met my eyes made 1110 blaze with anger. Strip ped to the waist and writhing with pain, the wretched McKeown was tied to the head of Callan's bed, while over him stood the big black bully, lashing him with a rope's end. "What's this fcr?" I cried. Callan turned his crooked gaze on me "To teach the yonng hound obedi ence!" His voice grated with rage at my interrup'ion. "And what business is it of yours Mr. Pry?" I fancied for (in instant he was going for me. But I was much too angry to think of consequences. "Yon're un.infernal bnlly!" I shout ed. "And if yon don't chuck it I can't make you, but I'l^soon let our employ ers know. " The bully was a coward?that 1 kne^v. But he could have killed me with one hand. So my relief was con siderable when he suddenly threw down the rope's end. I untied Mc Keown. and. pushing him before me. left the hut. But a hissing whisper followed me. "All right, young man. your turn now. But yon 11 pay for it." One day letters came across from the mainland?one from Cis and one in an unknown hand C'is' letter, of course. 1 read first Then I tore open the other and skimmed it through. Only by slow degrees did I realize its 1 import. My mother's uncle, old Sir ' Bernard Child, had died and left me everything. Why. I had never seen him. hardly imagined that he was aware of my existence I walked out, and, still in a dazed condition, called McKeown to pull me bctoss to the mainland. Then I bolted up to the vil lage postoffice and sent off a wire. To ward sunset the reply came, assuring me my news was correct in every de tail. I looked up the first train from Culcross in the morning, arranged about a car to take me there and was soon rowing back to Skryn. The sun had long set behind the sen rim as we pulled into the little cove, and it was quite dark as we clambered np the narrow rock path. Reaching the top, I glanced across to the huts an<3 thought I saw the gleam of n light flaah tinder the door of my slianty. I was about to hnrrv on when the boy laid a hand on my sleeve. Presently there was a scratching from within. A match flamed Tip. The man who had lighted it was crouched on the floor, his body between ns and the light. He was unwinding a piece of very thin twine or strong thread and carefully stringing it across the flcor from the bed &> the stove. He passed it round a leg of the stove and then back again, sccxiring it finally with infinite cantion to n little shiny metal tnbe which protraded from the top of a small parcel. This parcel was standing well hidden under one of the chairs at the foot of the bed. As the man turned I saw his profile pluinly. It was Callan. An. instant's thought and my engi neering training made plain to me tho whole infernal plot The parcel was gnn cotton ; the tube held acid in a thin glass receptacle. Abovo this was a lead en bullet, kept in place by a movable pin. The string so carefully wound across the floor was attached to the free end of the pin. A touch of careless feet against the stringy the pin would pull out, tho bullet fall, the glass shiver and the acid do its deadly work on tho ex plosive below. I had forgotten for tho time all about the boy. Suddenly, in a moment of mad fury?for he, too, had understood tho plot?he sprang nj> and beat with his fists upon tho pane. Callan raised him self quickly, but carefully, not forget ting tho deadly string. What ho did forget was how near hu was to the stove. As in a dream I saw his coat catch against it. It swung and the big kettlo overbalanced. For an instant it seemed to hang ill the air. I strove to call out. It was too late. Smash, it fell right on tho string. The whole world turned crimson and burst into a great glare of flame. Something struck mo in the chest and drove me backward. c * * ? e ? ? "Praise tho saints, his eyes are open, doctorl", "Yes. he'll do now," said another voice, in a rich brogue. I went to sleep again. When I awoke it was bright daylight. I was in Callan's hut. 011 his cot 1 felt sore and bruised all over, and at first conld not remember what had happened. Then it began to dawn on ma "Where's"? I began. "Sh!" came in the same soft brogno as before. "Don't talk I Callan won't be bothering ye any more. McKeown's not much the worse, barring his hair. And there's nothing broken in yerself." "How long"? I was mad to know how soon I should be able to travel. The doctor checked mo again. " In a week," he said, "if you'll lie still." I did. and tomorrow I am starting. Cicely will meet 1110 at nolybead.? Chicago Journal. Great Improvement. "I had severe headaches and rheuma tism and suffered intensely.
