Alien won seemingly u calm now as if
ho hail tK-en iu bis tHit-o transacting somo
ordinary businoss. His face might bavo
bown some faint signs of the agony that
was torturing his soul, but could not havo
conveyed any thing liko an adoquato repre

Uo flew into such a rugo at our diobedienoo
that we feared ho would do my littlo dumb

we should never soo him aguia. It was then
that I, for that child's suite, dared make the

'-Mrs. Collins, your conduct on th' t occa
sion U quite praiseworthy, instead of merit

you livo with such a monsterl The luw will
give you a divorce."
-I am a Cutboiiu," she answered, "and
neither does my religion or my consci nee
npprovo of divorces. No, sir, ny littlo
brother is safe from his persecutions, my
insane brother can not livo Irng end pother

Alico's head was bowed upon bis hand.
At last, with a troubled sijjh, ho asked)
"What Is his molivo for this strango con

"No, sir; bo la astrunge nun, law-abiding

"What uro those strunge sights and

"No doubt the reports of them have been
greatly mugnificd by persons behoving the
placo haunted. Tho lights are made by a
peculiar maglo lantern with which my in
sane brother some times amuses himself.
Uis shrieks and laughter, which ha driven
so many horror-str eken away, are but the
ravings of a mad man. You know olL Mr.
Gray," she said, rising. "It Is not proper
that I remain longor. Rc-rrots that we bad
not met soonor are useless it is useless
for us to think of each otbor at all. Allow
me to thank you for daring what you did.
My husband was vary angry at you for
thwarting him, lad hr would have killed you
at that time if he could."
'Did he nbuso you for III"
"Not mora than he has on other occa
sions." "Was be Jealous."
"Oh no, be know that my motive was
only to thwart him, and save my unfortunute
little broUter Claude. Now, furowolll Igo
back to my moth rand duty I Ood approve
this sacrifice, I am sorry that I am forced
to complain of my husband, and this story
told for the first time shall nover bo re

She sobbed bitterly. Allen took ber
hand, reverently touched It to bis Up, and, I
unable to utter a word, whoukid about and
loft the secno. ' 1
. (XC1.CK1N.
Allen Gray found t'.i n ...
of hi
life at Turley's Point irksome.' ' He kept I
tho secret of tho old house on tho hill to I
himsolf. As bo had no hope of improving !
his business at tho Point, and he found it '
daily growing moro unploasant, ho dotor
mSiod to mul;o a cbango; although be of
fered his press and material vory cheap, no
one could be found to take him up.
Drlvon to duaporatlon he at last bo-
thought him of a scheme, whereby he might
bo able to dispose of the U afem Republic.
Tbo30 politicians and statesmen, Messrs,
Simmons and Btrong, learning nothing from
derout, continued to war upon ouch othor.
Thoy hud audclent money to purchuso the
newspaper, and, as Toncy Barnes began to
evince a desire to enter tho jouruulKtio
field, ho determined to make some usooi
the poet.
"Toney, can't you get Mr. Strong to buy
the IPenUrn UepubUc and put you in as ed
itor!" Allen asked tho ioet ono day, as be
came into tho oflleo with a fresh roll of man
uscript, "I don't kuow; I will see him ubout it,"
said Toiicy,his faco becoming joyfully bright.
It was an easy mutter to sot Miss Hopkins
after Tom Simmons, and when Tom learned
that thci'O was danger of Strong purchas
ing tho paper und using it as a lever to
crush him, be ciado hasto to raise the
money and buy tho concern himself.
Thus released, Allen Orny, unmoved by
tho sighs, tears und delicate Insinuations
of Miss Hopkins, quitted the duU little Mis
souri town, and in Chicago sought now
Holds of labor, with little hopes, howovor, of
driving from his mind the Bad memories
of the past.
Ue soeured a position ua reporter on one
of tho grout city dailies, and for a year his
lifo ran on with but littlo to disturb it
daily routlno. Oao evening ho hud just
come into tho main oHlee, wheu tho editor-in-chief
sent him to tho sceno of a railroad,
disaster, which a telegram had announced
but a moment before his arrival. Tlio wreck
was only a l'o'.v milc3 from the city, uud a
special eur took himr.elf and several other
newspapermen with him.
Darkness bad ulready onvoloped tho
landscape, couceallii much of tho ghastly
horror, when tho sccua was reached. It
was a broken bndgo and thore wcro shat
tered couches und mangled passengers in
tho henp. Tlio reporters set to work, first
assisting tho surgeons and their aids in res
cuing the wouiidcd from the dark mass
of ruins.
Allen Gray dragged from bonoath a
broken car a slight form. That palo face
and thoso long golden trcssos were famillur
to him, und holding the insensible girl close
to a lantern lie gasped:
"My Coil, ItlsBortha!" Gently bo laid
her upon the greensward and called a sur
geon to bor side.
Tho gray-haired man of science bont ovor
her, placed his car to her chest, and said
her heart still beat. Restoratives were ad
ministered, nnd sho began to rcvivo. Allon
turned nway and noted scvoral UfoleBS
forms lying at tho sido of the track. Among
them was t.io dark-whiskered Frenchman,
tho husband and evil genius of llortbo.
Even in death there was a look of fiendish
satisfaction upon his haughty faue.
Calmly Allen wont about the wreck, and,
hurriedly writing up tbo uff.ilr, took it to a
reporter on a rival paper und said :
"Luko, I am In great distress 'o-night,
and I wish to ask a favor of you. You may
think I am asking too much, but wben you
"Mr ood, it is niainu!"
come to learn all, ycu will uot blame .ne."
"What is it, Allen I" Luko asked, in amaze
ment. "Take my rert, aud ut tho first station
telegraph It to my paper."
Tbcy hod now enmo near enough to a
lantern for Luke to boo bis compuulon'
"Why, AUen, what Is tho matter with
you I" ho asked; "you look as if you bad
seen a fjbost."
"I found a friend hero"
"Not dead yet, but c'ao Is badly injured.
Go to tho oilco and explain all to tho editor-in-chief."
"I wUL"
With the first car Allon wont back to tho
city. On tbo scat at his side, her bcud rest
ing on his shoulder, was a palo, beautiful
young woman, her long roldcn hair stream
ing in rippling waves down her bark. Bhe
was under tbe influence of narcotics nnd
groaning with pain.
"Does tho young leddy goto a 'ospitall"
asked tho coachman, as Allen lifted hi still
unconscious burden Into a carriage
"No; to tho Palmer Uouse."
To the hotel they drovo, and socurlngone
of tho best rooms, be hud the most skilled
surgeons called and a nurse engaged.
Much of his timo was spent nt hor bed
sido, and when thoso sweet bluo eyes first
opened Imbued with reason, thoy fell upon
the palo, anxious faco of tho young odi tor.
For days showai too wock to talk, but
when sho grow strong onough ho told bor
all. Sho then Informed him that her mother
and oldest brother were dead, und her hus
band having bcomo unbearable, she was
flying from him at tho timo of the accident.
At the last stop before it occurred, be hav
ing come ahead of ber on another route,
had boar Jed hor car. lie hud Just found
her and swore he would kill hor when there
was a crash as if Heaven and earth wore
meeting togothor, and she knew no more. '
AUon ascertained that hor aunt was now
living at Dayton, and telegraphed ber to
come at onoo to hor injured niece. Tondorly
as a brothor the reporter cured for her
until Mllo. Camillo came. i
Youtlt, health and a strong constitution
wore on Bortha's side, and sho roc.overcd
very rapidly. When Mllo. C'umillo cam
sho brought the little dumb boy, who was
rejoiced to see his sister nnd his companion
on that long dark ride.
Bortha's recovery v. us ho rapid thut toon
after her aunt arrival sho was thought to
bo well enough to go homo with her. When
Allen came W bid her adieu ho said : t '

bowed in thought, and sh said : ;
' Wait until a yur has elapsed." ' i
"IV u, not before, but remember that I will
evor hold you in grateful romembraneo."
Their porting was simply as frlonds.
Bertha looked vory pretty in widow'
weeds, for she insisted on wearing mourn

Allen waited anxiously for the hour whon
all restrictions should bo removed. Moan
while ho was becoming ono of tho foremost
nowspap-r men of tho timo. From rcportor
ho bail reachod tho position of city editor on
ono of tho largoat und most widoly known
dui'.ios In Chicago.
Tho yoar gono by, Allon wrote, and in due
time received an answer. Tho correspond
ence booumo regular, und at tho end of an
other six mouths a leave of absence wo
granted tho overworked city editor, who
biod away to some pluco in Ohio.
Reaching Di.yton, he hires a carriage and
orders the driver to tako him to MUo.

Allen was so long mlssiug from his desk
that his associates began to wnndor what
was the causo of his protracted absonce,
Tho managing oJitor sccaod to know tho
causo, though ho kept hu own counsel.
At It. t Allen returned to his post, bright,
smiling and huppy. Luke, who was now
associated willi him. on tbo sumo papor,
ssked him a groat many questions in re
gard to his visit, all of which Allen evaded.
A few days later, however, when ho met
tho city editor on tho s'.rcct, accompanied
by the prottiest bluo-eyed, goldcn-halrcd
creature he had over seen, who was intro
duced to bim by bor proud husband as Mr.
Allon Gray, light began to break in upon
his darkonod mind, and ho thought he
understood fully tho causo of Allcu's pro
tracted absence.
A tow weeks after his marrlago and re
turn to Chicago, Allen received a letter
from Toncy Barnes, accompanied by a
poem for which be hoped Mr. Gray would
find a publisher. Toncy stated among other
items of nows that Simmons and Btrong
bad at last succeeded In financially ruining
each other. Tbe WuUrn Republic hod sus
pended soveral months bofore, and Mis
Hopkins bod "married a widower over on
the Island with nlno children." He con
cluded by saying that tho people were all
moving away from Turley's Point, and tl
old Mont home on th hill had long tlnot
been deserted.
