"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

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
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. Let's hear what

near Yarby. I knew the plaoo well

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

"Run down to Baxenham tomorrow.

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-
Sin to-

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."
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

Dimensions of Noah's Arlf.
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

"Aot only are the farmers beginning

which these 1.COO.O00.C0O cf Don-m:i

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

petitors to close their factories and
throw tens of thousands of laboring
men out of employment.
"We have only to get freedom of

American is to the Englishman., and
just as the German is crying ont against

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.

1791 and 1800 inclusive, with a tariff
of 8yi per cent, upon foreign imports,
