"The Bctl):sck I hud received, so fnr from causing 1110 to abandon my search for Mullen, ouly nerved rao to fresh en deavor, though how to go to work I conld not for somo ti:o determine. To threaten Hughes thut I would report Jiiin to the authorities unless lie mada terms for himself by fulling me nil ho inew about his notorious visitor tvns not a course which commended itself to me. I might, as n last resource and in tho event of everything else failing, ho compelled to so bold a step, but for tho aenni T fnlfr Mmf: thn urianof thirif, T onId do would be to truoo Qniekly's movements after ho had started to shad ow tho poraon who had coma nshoro from the hulk. This would, however, necessitate my leaving Cnnvey, and in the meantime it wna of the highest im portance that au eye should bo kept up on the Cuban Queen. It was quito within the bounds of possibility that Mullen might yet re turn, in which cose he would probably lo so by night. Hence it was at night hat I kept my keenest watch upon tho hulk, and in order to do this I thought it ndvisablo to leave the inn and to in stall myself in u Email furnished cot tage, which, by an unexpected stroke of luck, I was able to rent very cheap ly. But, as I could not pursue my in quiries in regard to tho fato of Quickly .and lterp on eye at tho same time npou the Cuban Quoou, I decided to send for Irieud of mine named Grant, whom I could trust implicitly. Grant took tho next train to Benflect, Iho nearest station to'Cunvey, on re ceiving rty telegram, and after hearing my story aesured mo cf his readiness .-aud willingness to oo-operata in the search for Mullen. He promised to keep :au onwiukinn eye upon tho Cuban - 2n8ea while I va3 away and to lot me Ikonciw Hhould any snspieiouB strungcr come upon tho scene. The mat tor being thus satisfactorily arranged, I (started off to Bee what I conld learn about the ill fated Quickly. ' jMy theory was that that luckless wight had so clnmsily performed tho work of shadowing as to bring himself under the notice of the person shadowed, who would thou have reason to believe hat the secret of hia hiding placo was known, at oil events to one person. Un der such circumstances Mullen would in nil probability decide that, in order to iusure the return of thq secret to his cwn keeping, Quiokly must be dispatch ed to tho limbo of tho "dead folk" who "tell no tales," and I felt tolerably cer tain' that on discovering he was being shadowed he had led tho way to some secluded spot, where ho or his accom plice had made an end of the shadower. How I sot to work to colleot and to uift my evidence I need not hero doscriboi in dotail, but will snrn up briefly the Toanlt of my inquiries. Quickly had reached the statiou some sniuntea before the arrival of any other passenger, and in accordance with my instructions had gone at onco, to the general waiting room, whore ho romain cd until tho train started. Some fow minutes afterward a woman, carrying a I. 1 1 lJ-i iir. nfftna nnA taken a third class single ticket to Step ney. When the train drew up lit the platform, she hud seated herself in nn .empty carriage near tho conter, and ' sQuickly had entered a smoking carriago sat the end. When tho train reached Stepney, she passed through the barrier, followed at somo distance by a man an swering to tho description of Quiokly. Tho woman had then bought an even ing paper from a newsboy and, crossing he josj .Tjo'vly. had turned down a by Btrcst whiuli led to tho river. -The man, after looking in a tobacconist's window for half a minute, hud taken tho same trrraing, but upon tho other Bide of tho xoatl. There I enmo to a dead stop, for not ma jot of evidence as to tee snbso quent movements of either of tho two tr.ould I discover, and, reluctant though I am to admit myself beaten, tho fact could no louger ho disguised that in that direction, too, I was checkmated. -".Another throw back, Grant," I said whon I entered the cottage at Cauvey after this, fresh reverse. "Well, what are yon going to do now?" inquired my friend and collabo rator when he had hoard my story. "Givo it up, as we did tho othor riddles cf our eonoolboy days?" "Give it up! What do. yon take mo ior? But, hello! For whom is that let ter?" I said, pointing to au euvolope whioh was lying on tho table. "for you. Hardy Muir brought it over, It was sent under cover to him : from Loudon." ' "At Inst!" I said, broaking.tho seal. "It's from Green, the detectivo whom I put on to ferret out Mullen's past. I told him that if ho wanted to write ho -was to slip the letter into on envelope addressed to Muir at the Hogarth club in Dover street. He's been long enough finding anything out.

"I havo always foend him After Ioo7;(ti(J in a tobnccnnUVs window. oboveboard and square. If he is really on Mullen's heels, tho temptation to turn hia discovery to his own account is pretty strong. Twenty-five thousand pounds, not to speak of the kudos, isn't made every day, my boy. It's rather like shaking an applo tree in order that somebody olso may pick up tho fruit, to do the work and then see another man go oil with the mhney bags. No, I think he's acted honorably in giving me due uotioe that he's going to run tho show himself and in offering to roturn the exs., as he calls them., Manymon would have goco on taking the ooin while working on thoir own account." "What aro you going to do?" queried Grant. "Run down to Baxenham tomorrow. I don't suppose I shall got ony change out of Green, but I may hoar Bometbing thut will help me to put two and two together in regard to our lato visitor on tho Cuban Queen. As Greou has been working on my money aud in my servico I shan't feel any qnalm of conscience in finding out hia wonderful secret, if I can, and of making use of it if I do find it." Noxt morning I was up betimea to catoh on early train to town and thence to Yarby, where I arrived late in the afternoon. Baxouham is a little village on tho coast, somo 1 five miles distant, aud the shortest way there from Yarby is by a footpath across tho fields. A lovelier walk I lmve seldom hod. Tho sunset wts glorious, so glorious that for awhile I sat like one rapt, dreaming myself back into the days of my childhood and forgotful of every thing but the beauty that lay before mo. I remembered the fair haired little boy who day uftor day, aa tho afternoon was waning, would enmo tne stairs which led to n tiny garret under tho roof. There was only ono window in this garret, a window which faced the west and was cut in the roof itsolf. Looking down, one saw the red tilos run ning away bo steeply beneath that the little boy could nover glanoa at them without a oatchiuc of breath and with out fancying what it wouhl bo liko to find onesolf slipping down, down tho steep desoont uutil ono reached that awful place the world's edge, it soem ed to him where the roof ended in a sheer ond terrible abyss. But it was to see the sunset that the little boy would climb' the stairs each day, and as he dreamed himself out into that sunset it seemed a part of himself. not merely a thing at whioh to look. It seemed to draw him to itself ond into itself. It seemed to him as if, as he gazed, two little doors opened some where in his breast and his soul flew out like a white bird into the distant west. He know that his body was still standing by tho window, but he himself was away there among the purple and orimson and. gold.' . He was walking yonder sunlit shining shore that bent round to form a bay for a golden sea. He was olimbins yonder ranae of monn- OAQTOniA. Sin to- ilm.lt llN lgutiuw UFA CJUi . Li tain peaM peaks which, though built of nutubstaDtial cloud, were mora beau tiful than any show place of the tourist's reckiup, peaks upon wbute shining summit tho soul might stand aud look ont upon the intiliito. peaks which might oe climbed by the fancy of those whose fortune it might never be to see au Alpine height. And when the purple and crimson bad faded into citron, aud tho citron into gray; when the gold bad paled to silver aud darkened" to lead, and the bird had flattered back like a frightened thing to his breast, then the little boy would creep down stairs again, dry eyed, but sad at heart, with a strands aenso of loneliness and losi A I sat there watching tbe last of the sunset that little boy seemed to look out at me with desolate, reproachful eyes, asking what tho man had to givo the boy in exchange for his dreams. Then a but flew by, so closely that I foil the cold fanning l its wings upon my face, so suddenly that I drew buck with a start aud awoke to real life again. , Evening was clrsady closing in. An hour ago the setting sun had looked out over the horizon's edge and flooded tho stretch of meadowlaud, now so. gloomy isnd giay, with a burst of luminous Cold, whica tipped every grass blade and daisy head with liquid liro. Now on the same horizon's edgo the gusty night rack was gathering. The glory and tho gla mour were gone, nnd darkness was al ready abroad. A wind which struck a chill to tho heart moaned eerily over the meadows, aud wiiito mists blotted out bush and tree. If I was to reach Baxenham beforo nightfall, I had no timo to lose; so, with a sigh for tho vauished sunset and my vanishod dreams, I rose to continue my wulk. Another field and a thickly wooded plantation, and then, as I turned a bend whero the path wound round among tho trees, I found myself npou tho scabeach ulong which my path lay. In front, about a couple of miles awoy, I. could see tho church tower of Baxenham, over which red Mars burned largo and lurid among a score of tiny1 stars that quiver ed near him, like arrowheads shot wide of the mark, and low in tbe south tho slender moon was like a finger laid to command silence on the lip of night. Tho beauty of the sceno so possessed mo that I stood still an instant with face turned seaward and bared head, aud then, almost at my feet, I saw lying in the water a dark bod j that stirred and rocked aud stretched forth swaying arms like a creature at play. For one moment I thought it was alive, that it was some strange sea bedst come ashoro, which was now seeking to regain its nativo element, but in the next I knew it for tho body of a man, lying face downward and evidently dead. Thero is horror enough in the silent and stone cold stillness of death, but to see death put on the semblanco of life, to see dead arms reach and the dead body stir aud sway, as they did that night when the incoming tide soemcd to mock at death and to sport, cruel nnd catlike, with its victim, is surely more horrible still. With hands scarcely warmer than bis I drew the dead man np upon tho snnds and turned him npou hia back that I might see his face. It was the face of Groon, the inquiry agent, and in his hand ho held a small green bottlo, which was lashed to his wrist by a handkerohief, worked with his own ini tials,. "J. B. G." "Suicide!" I whis pered to myself as I stooped to untie the handkerohief nnd bend back the unre sisting fingers. The bottle was short and stumpy, with a wide mouth and a glass stopper secured by a string aud was la beled "Lavender Salts." I cut the string and drawing out the stopper held the thing to my nose., "It is laven dor salts," I said, "or has been, for it's light enough to bo empty. No, there's something iusido itstill. Let's see what it is," and with that I turned the bot tlo mouth downward over my open palm. A slip of neatly folded paper fell out, whioh I hastily opened. Four words wore printed upon it in rudo cap itals: "By order. Captain Shannon." iTO BE CONTINUED. RAILROADS IN: RUSSIA. BIx Thonwrad Miles of Railroad Kow Be ing llallt In the Ciar'ff Dominions. The state of Illinois has 10,600 miles o( railroad, Iowa 8,500 and Michigan 7,500. Tho three states Illinois, with a lima nreo of 5(T,000 square miles; Iowa, with a land area ef 65,000 square miles, and Michigan; with a luud area of 57,000 have collective ly 20,200 miles of railroad, or more than the empire of Russia had according to the last ofliulnl reports, which showed that at tho beginning of the present yoar the total length of ruilwoys opon for traffio in Rus sia was 25,975 miles, of which' 15,330 miles belonged to tho etnto, exclusive ef 615 miles of tho Trnnscnsplan rnilrond,. which Is in the b'undg of the minister of war. The area of Russia In Europe ts 2,100,000 square milos, ond af Russia In Asia 6,400,000 square nillcil, a total of 8,500,000 equaro miles. This deficiency of communi cation,, however, is .being, if not rapidly, at least steadily, overcome,, and it is com puted that thore are now 8,000 miles of roads la course of construction, and It is estimated that "by the end of tho century thero will bo something Ilka 82,000 miles of railroad in tho Russian empire, two thirds belonging to the state-. The growth of the railrtmn system in Russia, Modestly begun in 1837, has boon very rapid since 1890. Tho first road con structed Was 16 miles long, from ht. Pe tersburg to Tsarko-Selo,. and in 1840 this was tho only lino In tha empire. At that tlmo tho United States had in operation 2,800 miles. In 1850 the mileage of Rus sian railroads had increased to 300 miles, ond In 1860 It was stilt less than 1,000. Tho railroad mileago of the United Statos in the same year was 80,600 miles. In 1870 the mileage of Russian railroads was 7,000 miles; in 1880 it wna 14,000; in 1890 It was 19,500. It has since increased with sue rapidity that, as stated, it is expected that before 1900 there will be 82,000 miles of railroad in Russia, though, of course, these figures compare poorly with tho to tals in the United Statos, whore there nro dow 180,000 miles of railroads. One dif ficulty from which tho railroads of Russia bavo heretofore suffered severely has been the lack of freight business. In other words, tho Russian railroads havo been run chiefly for passenger traffio, tho profits of which ore relatively small and tho expenses of which aro Inordinately large. Up to 35 years ago the railroads cf Russia carried twice as many passengers In a year as they did tons of freight, though gradually the disparity botween the two has been lessen od, and 6lnce 1880 the proportion of freight carried has been materially larger than heretofore. In the United States about 70 per cont of the railroad earnings aro from freight, and this is the chief item of profit in CCCT--Inn ca nil tha ltnMi Wha Tltiaalnna ' - OASTOniA.

At a recent meeting of the Bristol Chan nel center of tho Institute of Marine En gineers Mr. Aisbltt gave a comparison of tho dimensions of Noah's ark with vessels of the present day. and stated that for sail ing ships the dimensions of tho ark could hardly bo excelled. For steamers, if ono or two breadths vrero added to the loDgth for machinery space, thoy would, he said, arrivo at somo of tho best proportions ac knowledged for rjrosent transatlantic steamors. As to the ark, there is no doubt that Noah must have been an exceptional ly good naval architect, as we are at tho end of the nineteenth century building vessels of praotically the same dimensions, It having been demonstrated that they are better sea boats than and have superior sailing qualities to vessels of different pro portions. It la a matter of history that in the curly part of the seventeenth century a man of tha namoof PoteijHans of Home bnllt two ships after tho model or propor tions of the arlt. Those vessels were, as might bo imagined, objects of ridicule and scorn nt tha time, but experience demon strated thut they carried more cargo than vessels of similar tonnage measurement but different dimensions, ond In addition made quicker passages.

The principal speaker nt the annual dinner of the New England Free Trade league, held on May 8, wus Mr. Frank lin Pierce, of Jew York. lie handled ln3 subject without gloves. lie said in part as follows: . "Aot only are the farmers beginning to appreciate the truth that protection robs them and their families, but our manufacturers, as the products of their looms exceed the demund of the home market, nro understanding that a pro tective tariff, especially upon their raw material, is against their interests. "The present population of the world is about l,40O,CC0.0CO. und only 400.- (iCO.OOQ'usc machinery at all. The rest do their work by rude tools guided by the hands, ond we. the Yankee nation. who have revolutionized the world by our inventions, who use machinery too greater extent than any other people. wc refuse to allow the raw material which these 1.COO.O00.C0O cf Don-m:i chine using fcople create, to outer our ports in exchange for machine-made products, except upon the payment of excessive duties, while the more intelli gent of our manufacturers are clamor- in for free raw material and sayinp: 'Give us free raw material, and we will conquer the markets of the world. "Instead of seeking the markets of the world, employing millions of men now lying idle, makinif the margin of profits less but the output several times greater than at present, gptting there by a steady market aud continued serv ice for our laboring classes, our trusts nnd combinations are hiring Iheir com petitors to close their factories and throw tens of thousands of laboring men out of employment. "We have only to get freedom of trade and we can capture the markets of the world in many Iine3. What the Englishman is io the German the American is to the Englishman., and just as the German is crying ont against competition with the machine-made goods and high, priced labor of Eng land, just so would England cry ont against competition with the machine made good's and the high-priced labor of America, were duties upon all raw. materials removed. 'We Americans walk fester, talk faster, work faster, do everything fast er than any other people on the face of the earth. A people of the greatest natural vigor, and the greatest enter prise iu the world, we have pampered our life and emasculated our strength and largely Impaired the vfrility of our national life- by a protective tariff. Manliness asserts its mastery in the same way in manufacturing as it does in every walk of life. The men in pro fessions who ask no favors, but get out upon the dusty arena and fight for a lead, are the men who gain strength by every effort. Give us ten years of free trade, nnd we would capture from England one-fourth of her vast trade. Givo us 20 years of free trade, and we will lead the world as exporters. "The protective system has de bauched public men and corrupted pub lic life. Give any body of men, however pure, tho power to take $100,000,000 from the pockets of the millions and transfer it to tho pockets of a few men through an act of legislation and you have created a corrupting power which will destroy the virtue and the patriot ism of that body of men. "We shall never get rid of the evils which I have described until every dol lar raised by taxation is paid into the national treasury;- until we stop entire ly this practice of allowing the-right of government to tax property to be used for the purpose of allowing the manu facturer to prohibit importations, form trusts and rob our people of hundreds of millions of dollars each year. 'The remedy is in direct taxation. Every man'has a right to know exactly what he pays toward the expenses of government, and direct taxation is the only means of stopping the lavish ex penditure of public money. 'For a period of ten years between 1791 and 1800 inclusive, with a tariff of 8yi per cent, upon foreign imports, und at the very time when we were go ing to tho great expense of establishing our government, the cost of govern ment was only $18.88 per capita for the ten years.. From 1S51 to 18G0 inclusive, under a tariff for revenue only, the cost of government "was. only ?218 per cap ita for the ten years, i- rom 1871 to 1S80 inclusive- the actu-al running expenses of government haJ risen to $130.41 per capita, more than six times the amount required' tinder a tariff for revenue only;, anil during the last ten j'ears the cost of government has been steadily' increasing. - "As a nation we can stand this lavish expenditure of the people's money, but we can never stand the luxuries, tho iniquities, the lack of patriotism which great wealth, quickly acquired, is sure tobriiig. . 'Wb con be robbed by a protective tariff and still live, but when the rob ber takes the money and buys special legislation nnrt turns it over to cam paign committees to buy. votes with, the very life of free government is as sailed.

They rather die from tho poison which tne lobbyist unci the vote buyer Infuse Into the body politic. ; "The mad not of protection will soon be over.
