"Then the will is false, I would bo willing

nan. Indignantly. "This Btarbright is at
the bottom of a tremendous scheme, i can
ot believe that old Mr. Vendible could

"Great laoueoco must ksve been brought

" It i. elaar caaeof the basest rascality I"
exclaimed Austin Wentword. "To me it

clared the young mechanic "I will oonsult

Yeu shall , not be. let t to the mercy of
either," declared, Wentword. . "Lura will
oome, aad she Is a match for the Captain
the best day he ever saW."
"I have always felt safe when my oousm
waa here," aaio) Grace. "I waa quite over
powered with joy when ahe returned, but
ska made tqe promise not to reveal; ber
' oommg, as she wished to remain dead to the
world for a tiatoi the-better to thwart the
plots Of ' CapUio-Starbnght, who at that
tine lira stcd' more fully than I do now."
"He Is a villain without one redeeming
trait I believe that It was he who at
tempted the life of Lura. They are bitter
too, and he feared aha would stand in his
way. - 'The two tramps who hurled her into
Hangman's Gulch that night bandied some
of Captain Starbrigbt's money for that
work, 1 am fully assured." "
"How terrible I" attend Grace. "It does
not seem possible tbat one so apparently
kind, o elegant in man Ire ra, could be so
deeply wicked."
"Perhaps you still doubt!"
"I confess to Incredulity to k certain ex
tent. I can not believe tbat Clinton Btar
bright would stoop to murder. It seems
too horrible tor belief."
"Time will tell," answered the young
mechanic. "I bare learned enough to
satisfy me tbat no crime is too vile for this
adventurer. By breaking the will and ex
posing the villainy of Btarbright we throw
every thing iuto your mother's bands, but
there seems to be no other way."
"I shall be satisfied with that, knowing
tliat I possoss your love," said the beauti
ful girl, clinging fondly to bis arm.
"I am satisfied to gain your band without
the fortune,' returned the infatuated
young man, bending and Imprinting a kiss
on the pale cheek of bis companion. .
Night shadow were tailing, and neither
saw the form tu a man crouching in the
bushea near, a man who had listened to
nearly every word that bad fallen from the
lips ot the twain.
Presently be lifted himself so that his
gleaming eyes took in the loving scene,
"Neither shall live to crush me," muttered
the prowler. Then his hand abot forward,
a flash followed, then a loud report. .
Grace Penroy sank apparently lifeless in
the arms of ber companion, tho blood
streaming down her face. The bullet ot tbe
sseasiuu had been well aimed.
Tbe suddenness of tbo crime quite pars
lysed the young mechanic for tbe time. He
felt tbe form of his betrothed a doad weight
in his arms. He eased her to the ground,
fully behoving tbat she wss dead.
An awful horror was east over heart and
brain. He had beard the report, and seen
the flash. To discover the asaaasin was now
bis desire. He sprang forward and caught
from the gronnd a smoking platoL H
glared about him flaroely, but saw no one.
Then he strode back to the bleeding form
on tbe ground, still holding the smoking
weapon of doatb.
At this moment a man rushed down tbe
path from tba direction of tbe house and
confronted Wentword.
It waa Captain Btarbright. . '
"So it has come to this at last," cried the
Captain, in an awful voice. "I feared it all
along. Poor Grace! to die by tbe hand of
a miserable mudsill I"
CHAPTEB XXY.
. IBS A Bit EST.
Tor en moment the two men glared
fleroely at each other.
An tin Wentword was too terribly
shocked to reallx his position, or the full
meaning of the word uttered by Captain
Btarbright He even allowed the Captain
to take tbe pistol from his hands, when he
bent and lifted poor Graoe in Disarms aad
moved toward the house.
There waa consternation among the
servants when the young mechanic en
tered the house With his bleeding burden.
Mrs. Penroy met him and screamed with
fright, and fainted on seeing the blood.
To Mrs. Penroy' room tbe young man
made his way, and placed Orace on tbe
luxurious bed. Tben, with pallid race and
trembling fingers, be examined the wound
is the head of his betrothed. Ha was an,
able to ascertain the full extent of the
wound, but believed it fatal. Captain Star
bright at once dispatched messenger for
a physician, the aesrest one being at Btoae
fleld, ten miles swsy. With this messenger
he sent a note which the man promised to
deliver to tbe county sheriff.
Boon nfter the accident a visiter was an
nouncedLouis Fingal, the young hunter.
Wentword met him with a groan as he
extended his hsnd. In tremulous accent
be told the youth of what had occurred.
"And yon think Grace will die!"
A tear stood in tbe young hunter's eye at
he put the question.
"IfearthewilL"
"Then retribution must fall at once on
her assassin," cried Fingal, In a stern
voice.
"That it shall."
Both men turned to see Captain Btar
bright standing near, tbe same spirit of
evil tbat he hsd ever been since bis appear
ance at Lone Hollow.
"Yea here!" exclaimed Fingal.
"I am. No one has a better right I
mean to see tbst the murderer does not es
cape." "You know him "
"He stands there," pointing at Austin
Wentword.
Fingal regarded the young mechanic in
silence. He saw tbe pallor on his faoe
deepen, caught a resentful gleam in tbe
eye, and realized tbat the words of Cap
tain Btarbright bad struck deep. ,
"This Is not the time nor place to resent
Such langusge, Clinton Btarbright,"
turned the young mechanic, in a low voice.
almost hushed under tbe shadow of ki
awf ul grief. " When I am astured tbat she
will live, or death intervenes, then I will
settle with you, sir, ia a way that will prove
satisfactory."
. fben turning to Louis Fingal the young
man took bis srm sod led him away. . In an
other room, with the door locked to keep out
Intruders, tbe two young men sat and con
versed long and earnestly. "
"Just as my happiness hsd dawned it is
awful to hare it snatched from m by the
bullet of a eruel assassin," groaned Austin
Wentword. i

"Weill"
"I mean Lura Joyce. She la atBtonefleld,

"Hot a word of that sort, Austin,' I bin
you and Graoe, and hone tbat you may both
live to be- united and happy, In apite of the
machinations ot a ooatemptlhle villain." -
Theft Fingal turned from the roonv .
Austin Wentword sat like ons in a dream
until he heard the outer door' clang behind
the departing hunter, then he leaned . his
head on his hands and moaned in an agony
of spirit; , .
' A pair ot glittering black eyes looked in
upon tbe sorrowing young man, the malev
olence in their depths Indicating how ven
omous was the heart beneath-
" It is welL Tbo Same is now completely
In my hands," muttered Captain Star
bright, as he passed down the hall to the
front door, after glancing In upon, the
bowed form of Wentword. He stood on the
steps and peered down through the trees
to tbe road and the gloomy hollow beyond.
Night hold full swsy now, and a mist bung
over Lone Hollow, as If the blue firmament
was mourning for the boautitul girl so
cruelly stricken down this night
Captain fStnrhright became nervous after
a little and begun pacing the wide veranda
with solemn, steps and alow, his cbin bowed
upon his breast, a thoughtful, troubled look
in his eyes. -
He remained pacing sere until the roll of
wheels announced the coming of the phy
sician from Btonotkld. ,
Mrs. Penroy snd young Wontword were
at the bedside of Graoe when the doctor en
tered. Both foil back to permit the man of
medicine aa opportunity for examination. :
The widow, after recovering from the
first shock, was extremely nervous, yet she
seemed to realise her doty and at once
assumed a place near the wounded girl.
Grace was still anoonsciona, but breathed,
and when the doctor rose from a brief ex
amlnatinn and turned to the widow, there
was a look on his face that brought a throb
of hope to the hearts of all no, not all, tec
there was one present who was not pleased
at the good doctor's announcement , .
"A bad wound.but if the Inflammation can
be kept down, the girl will recover. A few
days will decide. . The skull has been slight
ly fractured, I think." v , . ,. ,
For the first Urns since the crack of the
pistol had rung In his ear Ana tin Went
word breathed easy. His paUiA.oeunte
nanee lit ap with a glad light, while from
his heart fell a silent benediction..
Dr. Faxon left medicine, washes for the
wound and brief yst comprehensive in
structions, aod then took his departure. -
He had scarcely gone when another
vehiole drew ap at Lone Hollow.
Austin Wentword stood over tbe wounded
girl in a solemn, thoughtful altitude. He
heard no sound of stops, although two men
bad oroased the threshold and atood at his
elbow. :
A band touched bis arm.
He turned tben to confront a bluff look
ing man. who, with wonderful dexterity,
snapped a pair of handcuffs over the wrists
of the astounded Austin Wentword.
"What does this mean!" demanded the
mechanic, reeling backward. :
"It means tbat you are my prisoner. Aus
tin Wentword," returned tbe man, in a
stern voice, "lhave a warrant for your ar
rest." At the same time the officer, whom Went
word recognised as the county sheriff, pro
duced a paper and begaa reading.. Bo dased
wa be tbat the prisoner only caught a word
here and there, enough to inform him that
be had been eooused ot an assault oa one
Orace Penroy with Intent to commit mur
der. The idea seemed ridioulous as well a
horrible to Wentword. '
He was not permitted to say a word in
his own defense, but wa hurried from the
room and the house, and was soon being
whirled over the road to Btonefleld Jail. It
was a sad termination to the lovers' meet
ing of tbe evening.
And now two watchers were left beside
the wounded and Insensible Orace ber
mother aad Captain Btarbright For some
minutes after the departure of Wentword
In the hands of ths sheriff not a word broke
the solemn stillness of ths room. The Cap
tain was the first to speak.
" You see now what comes of permitting
Grace to receive the attentions of a low me
chanic" Mrs. Penroy lifted her faded eyes and re
garded the speaker fixedly.
"Bo you imagine It ia to him my poor
Grace owes this hurt!"
"Certainly. I have proof tbat will bang
him should your daughter die. It was a
lovers' quarrel again, and the use of B pistol
In tbe hands of a low villain mad with jeal
ousy." "Itls terrlblef"
Tbe tremor in the woman's voloe went far
to prove tbst although seemingly bearuess
at times, yet Martha Penroy bad an affection
for ber daughter that was a credit to her
motherhood.
"Terrible, Indeed," returned the Captain.
"I hope you seethe folly of coontensnoing
a low fellow like Wentword now. . I" '
" Captain Btarbright, please don't,"
moaned the wretched woman, pleadingly.
Bbe was pale andVembliug, Booming ab
solutely 111, and even the Capiat a bad not
the heart to proceed further tben, lie
turned oh his heel and walked from the
room.
He passed along the ball and entered One
of tbe large front rooms In whioh a light was
burning. The mom seemed to be empty.
and Captain Btarbright threw himself into
a large arm-chair beside the center-table
and claped bis hands, with elbows on th
table before bim. -, . v.t r. :t :. -J
" If she would only die," he muttered, " I
should feel betier, for I know tbat abe Will
never consent to be my wife. Should aba

He sprang up, white and trembling, with

"Bbe will not die, Captain Btarbright, but
If the ahould, you would be the one to haog
Instead of the men taken to jail this night
by the county sheriff."
The Cap alu stared..
Had. she then heard his muttered wordsl
How oaine abe here at this hour of the nigbtt
He bad seen nothing of her since she
appeared to him in ths road in front of the
mausjod' weeks, befprje, when he had at
tempted to murder hr To him she seemed
to a charmed lit. How much did she
know of his real character, of bis hand la
the first attempt that had proves eltoh a
disastrous failure t Had ahe learned aa,ght
from ,th man lao whoso- de4 body slept so
aaf elf beneath the surtaoe Of the forest poel!
He coaloV not answer these question, but
he at onoe formed a plan of notion, resolving
Inwardly to tide over present trouble as
smoothly as posaiblsi-- - --' r-
. "Yon eboese to make yourself .disagree

that caused the wings of his tawny mus

"You think I dou Id assume charge!"
"If you will, certainly."
Tbua coolly talked the two who were
deadly enemies.' Lura knew that be was
aching to Strangle her, even while his dark
faoe was wreathed in sanies. She bad en
tered the house for a purpose that could be
better carried through by assuming s meek
ness she did not feel, and so she smothered
her true foe lings.
"Of course I will remain. 1 heard that
my cousin wu badly Injured, and hastened
here at onoe. - Really tbi3 is all the borne I

since I left here week ago. When I think

'It it a wonder."
"Considering the band you bad in it, Cap
tain." Bhe smiled wickedly as sbo regarded him,
her rod forotep quivering unplensuntly.
"You wrong me, Lura," he said, in a low,
subduod tone. "I was mud that night,
absolutely crazed when I assaulted you at
the gate. I have never boon fully able to
explain that to myself. I meant at the first
opportunity to beg your pardon."
"Indeed I Anlyouhadno hand in hurl

fairly pierced him to tbe quick.
. Bhe was treading on dangerous ground,
but she could not resist the temptation.

" Which, when it occurred, you attempted

Her band was raised, finger pointing

said to be increasing in mortality under the
beat modern treatment and soma medical
men advance tbe idea tbat the old method
including copious bleeding gave mora
effocuve results than those now employed.
Others insist thst ths Increased mortality is
only apparent and Is accounted for by im
proved registration. W hatever may be tbe
facts, pneumonia is a very grave disease In
tbe lid snd feeble, whether their feebleaee
results from poor and insufficient food, from
an inherited weakness ot constitution, from
soma temporary impairment of health, from
bad air, or other cause. The feeble are those
who are most liable to be attacked by it
and Its easiest victims. Tbe attack Is often
without any ascertainable exciting oeuse;
but the most common causes are a sodden
chill and prolonged exposure to cold and
damp. Though tbe disease Is common
among tbe old, and ia quite apt to be fatal
yet it occurs most frequently between the
ages of twenty and forty-the period ot
greatest exposure. For a like reason It
more frequently attacks men than women.
