IB After inanjfmlntitei tier came a
H break In the Tlolenee of the storm and
BBH preparations were at once made for
HBj the climb up the bill. Deveaux was to
BHT remain behind In charge of the bones.
BB With their brldlo reins In bis bands ho
BB cheerfully mnlntalned this position of
BK trust, securely sheltered from the full
Ht forco of the elements. Right bravely
BBf did tho duko nnd his lordship venture
BHT forth into tho spattering rnln. They
BBg bnd gone no more- than threo rods up
BHT the path when they were brought to a
BH halt by the sounds of n prodigious
BH struggle behind them. There was a
HB great trampling of horses' hoofs, nc-
BH companlcd by the frantic shouts of the
HB count.
BJ "I cannot bold zem! Mod Dloul Zey
BB aro madl (lot bo! Help!"
Bj "Hold to 'cm!" shouted Lord Cecil.
BB "Help!" shouted tho count, at the
BB eamo moment releasing his grip on the
BB reins. Awny tore tho horses, kicking
BB great chunks of mud over lilm as bo
BB tumbled aimlessly Into the nnderbrnsb.
BB Down the road clattered tho animals,
B leaving the trio marooned In tho wll-
BB derness. Groaning and half dead, the
Bf unfortunate count was dragged from
BJ the' brush by his furious companion".

BB "Here Is my card, m'stcur," bo grot-

Bl "Demme. I know you I" roared the
BB dnko. "Keep your card, and we'll send
BJ It in to announce our arrival to Shaw."

BJ "By Jove!" exclaimed his lordship,

Peering through the door they saw
for tho flrst tlmo the many lights In
Shaw's windows, scarce n quarter of
a mllo nwoy. I'or a long time tbey
stood nnd gazed nt tho dlstunt win
dows. Dejectedly tbey sat dowu, backs
to the wall and waited for tbo storm
to spend its fury. Wet, cold nnd tired,
tbey Anally dozed It was Lord Cecil
who Orst saw the signs of dawn. The
rain storm bnd come to n mysterious
end, but a heavy fog In Its stead loom

and with many groans of anguish tbey
prepared to venture forth into the

Upstairs Randolph Shnw lay back
against the wall and shook with laugh
ter. Penelope's convulsed face was
glued to the kitchen window, her eyes
I peering Into tho fog lieyond. Shadowy
figures leaped Into tho white mantle;
tho crash of brush came back to her
ears, and then, like the barking of a
dog, thero arose from tho mystic gray
tho fast diminishing cry:
"nelpl nelpl Help!" Growing
fainter and sharper, tho cry tit last
wns lost In the phantom desert
They stood at the window and
watched the fog lift, gray and'forbld

discernible. Then arm In nrm they
Bet forth across tho wet way toward
Shaw's cottage,
"Poor Cecil!" she sighed. "It was
cruel of you." In tho roadway they
found a hat which she at ouco Identi
fied as tho count's. Farther on there
wns a carriage lamp nnd later n mack
intosh, which had been cast aside ns
an impediment "Ob. It wns cruel!"
Sho smiled, however. In retrospection.
"If I wero only suro that nothing
serious had happened to Cecil," sho
murmured anxiously,
"I'm sorry, dear, for that screech of
mine," he apologized.
Suddenly he started nnd gazed In
tently In the direction of the haunted
houso. A mnu n sorry figure was
slowly, painfully nppronchlng from tho
edgo of tho wood scirco a hundred
yards away. In his hnnd ho carried n
stick to which wns attached a whlto
cloth doubtless n handkerchief, flo
was hatless nnd limped perceptibly.
"It's Cecil!" whispered Pcnelopo In
horror struck tones. "Good heaven.
Randolph, go to html Ilo is hurt"
It was Lord Bazelhurst As Shaw
hurried down the drive to meet him, no
thought of tbo feud In mind, two be
ings even moro hopelessly dilapidated
ventured from the wood and hobbled
np behind the truce bearer, who had
now paused to lift bis shoulders Into a
position of dignity and defiance.
Shaw's heart was touched. Tho pec
taclo was enough to molt the prejudice
of any adversary Lord Cecil's knees
trembled. Ills hand shook as it lu n

ship, with a feeble attempt at severity,
nis voice was hoarse and shaky. "Wo
do not come as friends, dem you. Id
my sister here?"
"She is, Lord Bazelhurst Wo'll talk
this over later on," said Shaw In bis
friendliest way, "You aro worn out
and done up, I'm suro you and your
friends. Come; I'm not as bad as you
think. I'vo changed my mind since I

"Conround you, sir! l-i" But bla

and would bave fallen bad not the

to Shnw. '"Wo win come tn lor n mo
ment I say. perhaps you could give
us n dry dud or two. Bazelhurst Is in
a bnd way, aud so Is tho count It was
a devil of it storm."
Penelope came down from the porch
to meet them Without it word she
took her brother's nrm. He stared nt
her with growing resentment.
"Dem It all, Pen." he chattered,
"you're not nt nil wet. are you? I.oolt
nt me! All n your account too."
"Penr old (Veil! All on Kvelyu's ne

"I shall have nn understanding with
her when we get home." he said ear
nestly. "She shan't treat my sister
like this again."
"No." said Shnw from the other aide;
"shu shnn't."
"lly Jove, Shnw. nre you with met"
demanded his lordship In surprise.
"Depends ou whether you nro with
me." said the other. I'euclopo flushed.
Hot coffee, chops, griddle ca,kes nnd
maple sirup soon put the coatendlug
forces nt their ease. Ilnzclhurst so far
forgot himself its to Inugli nmlnbly nt

In his most piquant dialect, and the
duko swore by nn ever useful Lord
Ilnrry that ho had never tasted such
n breakfast.
"lly Jove. Pen." exclaimed her broth
er In rnro good humor, "It's nlmost n
sin to take you nwny from such good
cooking ns this "
"You're not going to take her nwny,
however," said Shnw. "She has come
to stay."
"What-what the devil do you mean,
sir?'1 demanded Lord Cecil, bis coffee

tents overflowed.

sho will be Mrs. Randolph Shaw.
'Hint's what I mean, your lordship."
Three of his listeners choked with
amnznuicut nnd then coughed painful
ly. Feebly they set their cups down
nnd gulped as If they bnd something
to swallow. The duke was the Urst to
And bis tongue, nnd ho was qulto nt a
loss for words.

"It Isn't beenuso you feel that you

'T love him. It's a much older story
than you think," sho snld simply.
"1 say, that hits me hard," snld the
duko with n wry fnce. "Still, I Join In

"We're trying to end tho feud, you
see," said Penelope.

eyes, tie looked tlrst at one and then

wrung it vigorously for n long time

Under tho general title "ifoH
Years of It" Brand Whltlock Ma o
of Toledo Ohio, begins a aeries of
porBonal reminiscences intbe January
American Maeazlno following Is an
extract which contains a plcturo of
a famous Ohio Congressman, Frank
Hurd of Tolodo:
"'His speech on Freo Trade, de
livered in tho Houso ot Representa
tives February 18, 1881, remains tho
classic on that subject, ranking with
Honry Clay's spoech on Tho Amer
ican System, dellvored in tbo Sonato
in 18S2J. In that address Frank Hurd
began with tho phrase, Tho tariff
Is a tax, which acquired much cur
rency years after whon Grovor Clevo
land used it.
"Everyone or nearly everyone, told
mo of course that Frank Hurd was
wrong, If he was not Indeed, wlckod
and the subject possessed a kind of
fascination for me. In thinking ot It
or in trying to think ot It, I only
perplexed myself moro deeply, until
nt last I recalled tho formidable, tbo
momentous decision ot taking my
perplexities to Frank Hurd himself,
and of laying them beforo him.
"I was by this tlmo n youth of
eighteen, and lu the summer when
ho had come home from Washington
I somehow found courngo enough to
go to the hotel where he lived and
to inquire for him. He wns there In
tho lobby, gtnmllng by the clgnr
stand, talking to sonic men, nnd I
bung on the outskirts of the little
group until it broke up nnd then the
fear I had felt vnnlslied when he
turned and smiled upon me. I told
him that I wished to know about
free trade, anil since there was no
thing he liked better to talk nbout
nnd too since, thero wero few who
could talk better about aujlblng
than lie could talk nbout the tariff,
wo sat in the big leather chnlrs while
ho dlscourt-ed simply on the subject.
It was !u llrst of several of these
conversations, or lesBons, which wo
had in the big leather chairs In the
lobby of the old lloody Houso, and
nnd It was not long until I was able
with n solemn pride to announce nt
homo that 1 wns a free trader and
n Democrat
"It could hardly hnvo been worse
bnd I announced that 1 bad been
visiting Ingersoll nnd wns nn atheist

ho sent his fnnioim tariff reform mes

of the Now York World. Mr. Cobb
was writing so ably, although anony

tho article:
"Cobb's leaders, nlwnys cogent,
forceful and Informing, made a very

Unfinished Americans. When Theo

United States, visited Detroit In 1903
