"Well, the first thing is to test this docu ment; then we'll know what steps to take." Several hours the two were closeted to gether. When Tom took his leave enough had been told to establish several important facts. Days passed, during which the detectives worked tirelessly to redeem themselves from the odium which unjustly attached to them, and their labors were ably seconded by Tom. The latter made himself decidedly useful in many ways. He strolled down, one starlight evening, to the "Travelers' Rest.'' With his usual boldness, be marched up to the bar aud called for a drink. While sipping the stuff, ho inquired for Jack and Joe, and asked how the "captain" took his long confinement. McCormick told him, savagely, of Clark's escape, and of the disappearance of his two 'That's "Made off, has he?" cried Tom. bad I They've got a warrant for him, and if he's caught he'll blab everything!" He had not come totally unprepared for this news, but had feareifeliis plot to entrap Clark would be revealed. "We're sure Jack and Crabbed are the traitors as got him away," said McCormick. "D'ye s'pose they'll peach?" "Can't say," responded Tom. "Somethings loose!" grumbled the tnau "The gang's been search ing for Willis; we heerd to-day that he'd skipped." Tom cogitated a moment, and arrived at conclusion as to where be had "skipped." "You'd better be on the watch, McCor mick. Lot's liquorl" The thirsty crowd rushed up in a body. Ere an hour had passed, they were in a semi-comatose state, and barely able to "navigate." They wero enjoying hugely the wonderful performances of the vocal and terpsichorean artists, when, of a sudden, a loud rapping sounded on the board wall back of the stage, as of blows dealt by a heavy ax. The per formers, frightened, jumpod from the stage and ran toward the street-door. They were c onfronted by a squad of po behind the bar. a lice. "The trap! the trap!" cried a voice. McCormick attempted to shut off the gas. Tom Black seized his hand and prevented him. At the same time, the wall fell in, and a second squad of police appeared. The den was surrounded. Little resist could be made, as there were few of the thieves sober, and the result was the capture of the whole gang. Guarded on all sides, they were escorted to the station, where they remained till sen tenced. The mysterious Tom thus proved to the entire satisfaction of the law his willingness to labor for the right. Another conference with Mr. Linktngton followed, after which he telegraphed to Mrs. Clayton, aud set about the conclusion of his task. , , . , He retired to his cheap lodgings, and ar ranged for a journey after the decamped Clark, a feverish haste accompanying his movement. He took no luggage, but ance every made an entire change of dress. CHAPTER XXV. LAST RESOURCE—VILLAINY S DEFEAT * SHOT IN THE HAND* . ■ The success of his plans in regard to the widow Burrill buoyed the wretched Clark up, and he began to collect his scat tered thoughts. Cecil Clayton must be seen without delay, and be forced to return bis treasures, if she had not already used them. Whatever tho risk, it would pay to run it. He enlisted Gipsy Jack's services, and they went to Clark's birthplace, which was start lingly significant, for Jack was strong of limb, and reckless of consequences. There being no grog-shops in the village, to mar its beauty and curse its inhabitants, he put up at the farm of a young, dissolute countryman, where a flask of liquor was procured. So soon as the men were left to themselves, which was not till dusk, they betook themselves to a small out-building, used for a buttery. This they thought to be a sure retreat. But the clap-boaids were thin, and con versation carried on in low tones inside might be distinctly heard outside by lying close against them. And, while the plotters were busily en caged, a man did stretch himself on the ground alongside the house, whose ears ab sorbed everything. It did not take long to arrange the vile plot, and before it was dark its details were ^cfecffTand her mother were seated in a quiet nook in the garden, talking over tha joy which might be in store tor thorn. "Cecil, my darling, if we were only priv ileged to let onr relations be known to those about us, and were yonr father with us, should be perfectly happy," said Mrs. Clayton. , , „ "But, mother—how I love to dwell on that word; it is so precious to me—mother, sweetest name on earth! But, mother, from what you have told me, I should say that father-" , Mrs. Clayton placed a finger over her lip. "I merely said, dear, that a slight possi bility existed. I can forgive, but forget, never! A reunion after so many years of separation would bring about an exposure pf every phase of the secret, and that could pot be. Surely you would not have it so?" "Oh, yes, I would!" I Mis. Olavton kissed her fondU- - — wo £' "You'do' well, 'dear, in acceding to my wishes. I am glad pride has had a fall." Ah! she did not know what a fierce battle had been waged within her daughter's bo som. It was no light duty for Cecil to utter that acknowledgment. In the course of their talk, Cecil requested a sight of the paper which Tom Black had giren her on the occasion of his midnight visit, and which, at her mother's solicita tion, she had given up. Mrs.. Clayton took it from her pocket, and laid it in her lap. "Why, it is torn!—the signature is not here!" cried the girl. "It does not matter," was the calm reply, "I shall never use it." Cecil knew that it was whole when her mother received it, for it had a notary's seal and signature appended: but the deposer's name had since been obliterated. It was an oath to the legality of Sarah Armstrong's •marriage with John Clayton. Whilo she was yet examining it, an clamation from her mother caused her to look up. Jared Clark stood before them. She could have screamed, so sudden was the shock, and for the first time his pres ence frightened her. Mrs. Clayton did not stir from her seat. "Jared Clark, what brings you to the home of honest people?" she asked, haugh tily. "What do you think to gain?" "You haven't much delicacy, Mrs. Clark," replied the villain, with a sneer. "I did not think your brazenry so unlimited. If you wish to remain here, you must pay. Old Clayton handed over a pile; you shall follow in his footsteps." "Never! The mine is run out. You shall never receive another penny." Tkero was a greenish glnre in the man's eyes that sent a chill through Cecil's veins. Before he could reply, she placed herself before her mother, and drew her slight, graceful figure to its full height, crying: "Fiend! heartless, designing fiend! rather than that you should have aught to do with mine, I would sacrifice even the life I now hold so dear! I defy you to your face! You claim that we are in your power. You are in mine! The chain is being forged about neckl The last link will soon be ex your welded! Boast while you may!" Stung to madness, her enemy seized her by the wrist. "Will you give me that box?" ho hissed. "No, she won't give you Urn box, cap!" came the answer, in a voice well-known to all. And his clutch was loosed by a thump from the clenched fist of the mysterious Mr. Black, who at the moment put in an appearance. "Yon here?" "You bet! Trade's dull; out for a pic nic. Easy! Don't draw your toadsticker on me, 'cause they're werry bad things. They cuts too deep. And remember I'm the bull-dog as bites when you aint awful careful!" A pistol-barrel gleamed in the dying sun set. "You axed for your box, I b'lieve, and axed in a werry emphatic way. I was wi cious enough to steal it.'' Back to its place went the pistol, and out came the missing box from the recesses of a light coat. "Want it bad?" asked Tom, holding it dangerously near its owner, worth lots to these folks. That's why I didn't let 'em have it, for you'd have stolen it back again, and that would bo wicked. I heard you say you was goin' to make a raid the Clayton ranch to-night." "What—you overheard our conversation down the road?" "Every word," replied Tom, with tantaliz ing nonchalance. "Nuther bad habit— eavesdroppin'. I'll have to break myself of . But I know more'n that about you. You're a bad case, Mr. Man-with-many "So do I. Its Oil names. "Jack! Jack!" Clark called suddenly. Tom gave utterance to a prolonged laugh. "No need o' calling him. We found him botherin' Mr.,Newting 'bout a debt you say Mr. Newting owes you. As I don't b'lieve in debtors being put in tiglil -s, I axed the gent as was with me to i.. -ilr. Gipsy Jack, esquire, and be tied him." "Confusion, Jack arrested!'' "I weep to say so, but I guess that's it, With a fierce cry, Clark sprang upon him. Tom thrust his hand quickly into his pistol-pocket—the lining caught and held the weapon back. Clark's knife descended in a direct line to the brave man's heart. A shot rang out on the air. The knife fell to the ground. The arm that had held it dropped, shattered by a ball. c: Cecil Clayton had saved a life by her presence of mind. She had extricated the pistol and used it. On the instant, and before the wounded man could flee, Tom blew a shrill blast from a whistle, attached to his neck by an in visible cord. Two detectives, in citizen dross, came from behind tho bushes, and stood beside Clark, one on the right, one on tho left. "Jest in time!" said Tom, approvingly. "Mr. Bob Willis, these men will take care o' you. You'll not get away, like you did from the 'Travelers' Rest. And when you arc tried, I'll say a word for the prosecu tion. Put that in yer meersham and puff on it!" "On what charge am I arrested?'' "Slackmail in the first degree." Trembling with rage, and suffering with '"tense pain, the baffled villain was led to prison. fTO BE CONTINUED.] In spite of flannels, cmtgln and colds will make a lodgment lu the system.
