tbonirht ho'.v fur from success this vonture

all lnquiri.'a about his ubsenco ho answered
that ho lu 1 bejp suddenly culled away on

"Backusuin, uro your" said Miss IIop

"Very tou sling indeed," said tho o'ltor,
with becoiuin;; gravity, partially uncon
scious of what ho was saying.
" Oh, sir, I havo shed tears over It," staid
the anclont maiden, cnt husiast ically. "It
was Into in tha cvonwrf, and tirod of the
tolls of the day I had retired to rest, and
as I lay on my bed thinking what I could
do to advance tho interests of the nvrn

she parenthetically added, looking very
tenderly ut h'.ui "I was suddenly seized
with a desire lo wrlto. I bcliovo yos, sir, I
verily bclievo that a voice called on me to
write that poem. Tho voice of fume"
' Please road It, Miss Hopkins." No ed
itor In his sober senses ever asks un author
to read his or her productions, so tho reader
can ImuTine how duxperate was tho condi
tion of Allen Gray.
Now, Mr. Gray," said the old maid, with
feeble attempt at a blush which failed,
however, to appear on her powdered check,
"do not say it is splendid unless you really
think so. Yoj uro such a person to flatter,
especially younj girls."
Allen was too deeply, too painfully an
noyed by tho complications iu which he
found himself to observe tho coquettish
manner of the poetess, and with no other
object than gratifying an ambitious writer,
be abstractly said:
"You wrlto oxcollont poetry, Miss Hop

" But lot me hear your poem."
Bhe unrolled her manuscript and pro--ceeded:

Allen, whose mind had really not been
on the poem more than half the time, here
asked bor to whom she alluded.
"Oh, I won't tell," she 1 answered, and
another blush made a desperate effort to
struenle through the rouge on tier cdook.
"Now I don't believe I will road any more

' ; "Leave It with ma."
"Oh. not for the'world." '
"Itnn't vou Intend to have it published!"
be asked, beginning to wondor why the bad

'No, no," she answered, holding the preo

and then, boforo he wua awure of what bo

"You are a very remarkable girl."
Evidently putting a wrong construction

Are you partial to publlshoi'sl"
Oh, hu h! ' tad thu time thoblushmnn-
tt'jcd to wah its way through. lt Is difll
ciilt to tell how fur i ho would havo gone,
for Miss Ilop'ains win arriving at an age
'hat mt'es it woman unxious to many,
desperates had thoy not boon Intorruptod
by a sunnier.
It was u uiau. boluiug up tho li-outoi ms
flapping broad brim bat with one hand,
while tho other held a horsc-wbipof tho
Uiickt'iakt kind.
" Vhar's tho cdilur!" ho roared, In a voice
of tbjm-cr.
"Oh. dear!'' screamed Miss Lecthy Hop
kins, in a paroxysm of fear, springing up
from tho chair whoro oho had been sitting
and golting ready to faint
"Whar's tho cditurl" the stranger again
yelled, bringing down ona foot with astump
thatmado tho building ring. "Show me
thut or cditur, 1 say whar's tho editurl"
"Oh, don't don't please don't,"
scrciuiiad Miss Hopkins, to whom a golden
opportunity now seemed to open, bhe
could immortuhzo herself and gain the love
of this publ.shcr at tho same timo. This
was tho InV'nciblo mn'.i with the horsowalp,
como to demand sali.uucti n of tho editor.
Everybody lias heard of "tho muu with tho
horsewhip;" many ctiitors have formed his
acquaintance und lt Is useless to suy that
this individual is thought by many to be an
indispcusubie chock to editors.
"Cit out 0' my way, gal whar s the ed-
iturt'' roared ho ot the horsewhip, dancing
lu bis fury.
'Oh, don't, don't, don tl" screamed Miss
Hopiuus, wringing her bands and falling
upon her knce3 bcioro tno enraged counlry
niali. " Oh. snaro him; sparo him this time;
for my salio sparo hira I"
"I won't do it, I won't. Whar's the ed
iturl I'm er goin' to hosswboophiui,l don't
kocr cf it's at a funeral."
Allen, who had boon standing cool and
apparently unconcerned over since the ar-.
rival of this stormy stranger, now spoko up
for tho first timo."
" Wo wiil excuso you, Miss Hopkins," be
said, as ca'mly as if some ordinary matter
was under discussion. " 1cuve mo with this
man; ho undoubtedly ba some business to
" Ye bet 1 hov. It's important, too, an'
I'm anxious to git at It"
"wo will excuse you, Miss Hopkins."
"Oil, I will faint!"
" Get out lu the open air and you will
fool bettor."
" But, oh. dear, I am so afraid"
" No one Intends harming you excuse
me. but I must bo alone for a short time."
Ue opoLcd tho door as ho spoke and Miss
Hopkins, sobbing and simpering, left the
"Bo seated, sir," said Allen to the in
furiated furmor, who stood somowbat
amazod that the editor did not quake and
tremble before him.
" I want to see the cditur," he bawled.
" You shall see him, but thore is no need
for you to be In such an extraordinary
hurry Be seated."
With a growl something very much like
an oath, the man threw himself into m
chair, and Allen, with amazing coolness,
" Now, sir, what do you waut to see the
editor fori"
" I waut to wear out this hosswhoop on
him," roared tho enraged husbandman,
bringing tho whip with a savage whack
down upon the dosk. "I am mad; I tell ye
I am mad, and when I git riled I oat mount
ains." " You are mistaken, sir; you are not half
so mad as you think," Alien coolly re
marked. "Tell ne why you aro mad I"
"That piece -that piece in yer papor about
mo that I misrepresented, slandered and
lied on Sam llorrin 'bout tho corn knlfo."
For tho llrst timo Allen now recognized the
enraged mun as Oeurgo Lccpor, bis formor
correspondent from Billy's Creek.
" ell, Mr. I-eeper." said Allon, folding
hi arms vory quietly, "there was a mis
understanding between us on that matter,
you know you told mo it was all a harmless
Joke, wbilo Hum llorrin says it was a ma
licious slander."
"Well, he Is tho uiai you want to see
then. I published your representation of
the matter: und, at his request, published
bis, which was only just and right that the
public may draw their own conclusions.
Now, as to tho editor for whom you are
looking, you met him on your former visit,
and he ba not changed so much that you
need fail to rocognizo hlin. But 1 really
think tho proper thing for you and Ham
Horrln to do is to sottlo your dispute with
yourselves and not be dragging them into
the newspapors."
Having given this wholesome advice, the
editor cooly turned to his desk and began
writing. For several minutes Ooorga
Leo per sat glowering about the office like a
battled tiger; then rising, he said:
" I want my paper stopped." .
" 1 your subscription paid I " Allon asked,
taking up a large book and opening It
" I paid half a dollar on it, an' 1 ewa'r I
won't pay a uutber cent I don't want yer
paper any more, nulher.
" It's against all rules to stop a paper un
til the subscription Is paid lu full." .
Allen went ou writlnir as if the violent
dancing and cursing at his back did not dis
turb biiu. This subsided in a moment and
he beard lie ring of a sliver dollar on the
dosk at which he wus writing, the door
slammed spitefully, und the man wltbj the
horsewhip was gone. A torrlble noise with
out shortly af uorwurd attracted tho editor's
attention. Uo looked through the window '
and snw a man leaping, dancing and yelling
on a hill-top about a hundred paces nwny,
swearing lie. was the boat man on dirt. It
wua tho man -with the horsewhip from
Billy's Crook.
cnU'VEU XVt'
Alien smilod. Tho man from Billy's
Crook had culti'f od his Ul-tempor until
howasonublodtoily into a passion on tho
llrrhtost notice. Somo men do thin, appar
ently, for no otbor roason than to make
themselves miserable.
Growing tirod of tho silly follow's antics,
the editor turned to his dosk and tried to
bury himsolf in his business. But notwith
standing tho many exciting and ludicrous
events, his ramd wns not wuo'.ly won away
from tho mystery whiclj soom j j to bo real
ly blightlug his lifo, aud kept hiu thoughts
from businoas. In hi busiest moments,
nm;d tho moat exoiting ovonto,tho cry: "In
Heaven's narao spare him I" rang on his
cpr. Tho swoot, sad faco of tho mystic
girl, whom ho could not but lvo. seemed
always beforo h'm, pleading with Lor large
blun eyes for roliof.
"Whoaroyouf Who are you 1" ho nskod
himself again and again as tho vision rose
be "ore hi i mnd. Ton thousand tormenting
ilonds scorned constantly aggravating him
with their doubts and fears.
"I will know tho worst" ho doclarod to
himself. " If I havo to board tho lion lu hia
den. I will know all."
Tho stranger from Billy' Crock was for
gotten, so wholly was Allen abnorbcd with
thoughts of tho stono houso on tho hill. The
rustic br.lly had grown weary with cursing
aud striking tho air, and, as no nuo seemed
to disputo his titlo to bo " tho best man on
dirt," ho loft tho village, to. carry to his
friends a wondorful story of how ho hod
mado tho editor quail.
Tho editor, meantime, sat in oblivion oi
his existence whoa ho was start od by
sob. Lcoltbg around, ho wan not a little
surprised to see Miss Lecthy Hopkins stond
iiig just within tho door.
" Why, Miss Hopkins, are you horol" the
wondering editor oskod.
" Ah, uro you hurU" she sobbod, hysteric
ally. " No' he answered, in astonishment
"Oh, I that is -sir -I was afraid that
violence had been done you," gasped Miss
Ilopkius, sinking Into a chair.
"I assurayou that I am uulnjurod."
" But ho looked so furious I"
" Tho Is littlo daugor in looks."
"And I hod such a dread of him."
" Ho Is gono now, and cas do you no in
jury," said tho cdiloi", misinterpreting tho
old maid.
" Oh, Mr. Gray, I -I would not have had
him Injuro you for tho world, and we wore
talking so pleasantly, too, when he came
" 80 wo wore." returned Allen. " I be
lieve wo wore talking about tbe mystery of
Turloy's Point, wcro wo nott"
" Yo, no oh, you rogue, you know about
what we were talking," said Miss Lecthy,
wiping her eyes and blushing profusely bo
hind her handkerchief
If ho comprehended Miss Hopkins ho did
not pretend to, but in a cool, evon voico
" I was going to ask you something about
that old houso on tho hill."
" Don't you know It is a forbidden topic!"
" Yes, gonorally It is," ho answered, with
a sigh. " It is not every ono that I would
talk with on this subject but as wo have
occasionally exchanged conddenco on other
subjects, wo might on this."
"Oh. of course " Hbo managed to blush
quite profusely now, and coyli pinching at
tho folds of hor dress, gnthorod them down
into narrow plaits. - ' "
"I thought you would bo willing to toll me
all you know about tho matter."
"Oh, yos."
Bho sigbod and gavo him a glanre from
tho eornor of hor oyes.
" W hat Is tbo namo of tho man who live
in tho stone houso!" Allen asked, without
noticing hor look or making an effort tc
translate it
"Some say it's Colllns.but bo has a great
big French name, something liko Do Col
liour, which they say Is his real namo, and
that ho took the namo of Collins In place of
it because it is ca3ior to pronounce."
"How many bavo they in family at the
rock house!"
"That is very difficult to ascertain. Borne
say thore are several, others thut there are
not many. Thoy have a good many servunU,
but talk French, no one can find out
any thing from them."
"Did it never strike you that there Is 1
great deal of romance about this singularly
mysterious old bouse on tho hill?"
"Yes, sir, it has," she answered; "and I
believe that it would be an excellent theme
for a story."
"It might What do you know of lt!"
"Oh, not much."
"How long hav? you known that tall,
dark-whiskered man I"
"I don't know him at all"
"You mean you havo no formal acquaint
ance!" "No, sir."
" How long since you first saw hunt"
"Three or four years ago."
" Had he boon here before thut tlmol"
" I have heard that he had. He has been
living at tho old stone houso on tho hill at
short poriods, for sevoral yean."
"I bollove you said that a young lady
was once socu within those walls!"
"Yes, sir; that was only a fow months
ago. I bavo heard that she was seen again
within the last few day. Horn ono discov
ered bor sitting on a rustic seat beneath an
old oak, at a spring on tho hillside, between
tbe village and the rock bouse."
"Who Is shot"
" No one knows. B'.:o seems to be tn ad
ditional mystery. It is generally supposed
that sho Is tho daughter of tbe dark
whlskored master of tbo stono house."
"She has no resemblance to blra what
ever," Interposed Allen.
"You nave soon bor thou."
" From tho description I have had of bor,
he has no rosemolunce to him."
" No; yet parents and children are some
times very dissimilar."
" Do you think she has lived there long!"
"No, sir, she can not have been there
nioro than a few months at most" o
wered Miss Hopkins. "Bhe was never
een about tho place until recently."
"Have you over heard of any children
being seen or heard there!'
"No,lr." .
" Do you think there are any!"
" There are none. They would find lt im
possible to keep a child within those great
wall so quint and sllont that it would not
be seen or beard by somo one," answered
the school-teacher.
"Does that dark-whiskerod man make
frequent trips away!"
"I suppose bo does-it i seldom, bow
ever, that any ono evor sees him go away or
come back. For weeks at a time he 1 not
sen, and then we know he is away from
the old bous on (lie hi 1L Then all of a sud.
den he ia discovered walking about the
big house, or even coming to the village,
but making the acquaintance of no one.
Home peoplo think that he is the chief of
banditti and goes away to his rendexvous
occasionally. Then there Is an old mother
Tiffin wbo believeatn witchcraft. f?ho says
he Is a wizard, and that tho strange sight

o''en nre tho result of his wild incanta
tions und invocation of tho evil spirit. I
havo beard pooplo say that they havo heard
screams, shrieks and wild, domoniao-laugh-tor
from within that old house, which al
most fro.te tho blood in their veins."
Allon, haviivr witnessed somo of those
strango sights and hoard somo of those
mystorious nohca, did not think that she
was cxaSToruting thom In tho loast. But
his strong common. uon:W told hira that there

"No, sir," r.!:o nnswerod, curtly, while an
