"You havo never spoken a truer word, Miss Holllstor; but hy means which I am not nt liberty to disclose, I have persuaded him not to visit this houso again." "Then," said Miss nolllstcr, "I can not do less than express my gratitude, though I regret that you did not first allow me to meet htm. Still, 1 dare say that wo shall Ond his bones bar led somewhero beneath my founda tions. Plenso assure mo that such U your expectation." ' "Tomorrow, Miss Holllster, I shall tako pleaauro In showing; you certain bidden chambers In this bouse which I venture to say will afford you great pleasure. I havo tonight discovered a link between tho mansion as you know it and an earlier houso whoso timbers may indeed hldo tho bones of that British soldier." "And as for tho chimney?" "And as for tho chimney, I glvo you tny word as a professional man that it will never annoy you again, and I therefore beg that you dismiss the sub ject from your mind." I saw that sho was about to recur to tke shoe sho held In her hand and at which sho glanced frequently with n quizzical expression. This, clearly, was an isstto that must bo mot prompt ly, snd I knew of no better way than by lying, tlczeklah herself had plain ly stated on the morning of that long, eventful day, when she walked into tho breakfast room In her aunfs ab sence and oxplalncd Cecilia's trip to town, that It wns perfectly fair to dis simulate In making explanations to MUs llolllster-thnt. In fact Miss Oc tavla enjoyed nothing better than the Injection of fiction Into tho affairs of tho matter of fact day. Hero, then, was my opportunity, i "Miss HoV.lRtcr." I began boldly, "the slipper jou hold In your hand belongs to mo, nnd If you have no lmtnedlnto use for It I beg thnt you allow me to 1 relievo you of It." I "It Is yours, Mr. Ames?" I A lifting of tho brows, a widening of i thu eyes, denoted Miss Octavla's po i lite surprise. I "Beyond any question It Is my prop ( erty," I nssertcd. "Your words Interest mo greatly, Mr. ' Ames. As you know, tho grim hard ' llfo of tho twentieth century palls upon I me. and I am deeply Interested In ov- 1 erythlng thnt pertains to ndventuro nnd romance. Tell me more, If you aro freo to do so, of this slipper which I now return to you." I received Hczcklah's worn llttlo pump Into my bauds as though It woro an object of high consecration. "As I n m nothing If not frank, Miss Holllster, I will confess to you that this shoe came Into my possession In a very curious way. One day last spilng 1 was In Boston, having been called llioie on professional business. I In the evening I left my hotel for n i wall;, crossed thu common, took n turn tlii-uitjli thu public garden, whero many detoted lovers ndorned tho benches, and then strolled aimlessly along Beacon street. I "I was passing n houso which I have ' not since been able to Identify oxnet ' ly, though I have several times rovls Ited BostoTi in the hope of doing so, I when suddenly and without any warn ing whatever this slipper dropped at tny feet l! the houses In thu neigh borhood s.s'ined deserted, with win dows anil ilnors tightly boarded, and my closest scrutiny failed to dlRoivor any opening from which thnt slipper might hnu boeir tiling. Tho region Is so decorous and acts of violence aro so foreign to Its dignity and reposo that I could scarce believe that I held that bit of tan leather In my hand. Nor did Us unaccountable precipita tion Into tho street seem tho act of a housemaid, nor could I bcllovo that a nursery governess had thus sought di version from thu roof above. I hesi tated for a moment not knowing how to meet this emergency. Then I bold ly attackod tho 1h1I of tho houso from which I believed tbo slipper to havo proceeded. I rang until a policeman, whose speech was fragrant of tho Ir ish coasts, bndo mu desist, informing 1 mo that the family had only tho pro- vlous day left for tho shore. Tho house, ho assured me, was utterly va cant Thnt, Miss Holllster, Is all thoro I Is of tho story. But over since I havo I carried that slipper with mo. It was In my pocket tonight as I traversed tho upper halls of your house, socking the ghost of that British soldier, and I had Just dlscovored my loss when 1 heard you calling. In returning it you hnvo conferred upon me tho greatest Imaginable favor, I havo faith that soma time, somewhere, I shall find tho owner of that slipper. Would you not Infer from Its diminutive ulzo and tho lino, suggestive delicacy of Its outlines, tlmt tho owner U a person of aristo cratic Uncage and of breeding? I will confess that nothing Is nearer my heart than tho hope that one day I shnll meet tho young lady I am sure sho must bo young who woro that slipper nnd dropped It, as It Becmcd, from the clouds nt my feet thoro In sodato Beacon street, that most sol emn of residential sanctuaries." "Mr. Arrtes," began Miss Holllstor In stantly, with nu assumed soverlty that her smile belled, "1 cannot recall that my niece Hezeklah ever visited in Bea con street, vet I dnro say that If sho hud dono so and n young man of your pleasing nppenrnnco hnd passed be neath her window olio of her slippers might very easily havo becomo do taclied from Ilezeklnh's foot and fall en with a nice calculation directly In front of you. But now. Mr. Ames, will you kindly enrry your cnudlo Into that trunk room?" Tho foundations of tho world shook ns I remembered tho compact by which IlczeVluh mis excluded from thu house and realized what her Impending dis covery would mean to Cecum, her m thor and the wayward Hezeklah too. But I was in for It Miss Octavla in dicated by an imperious nod that I was to precede her Into the trunk room, nnd I strode beforo her with my cnudlo held high. Bat the sprites of mystery were still abroad at Hopefleld. Tho room was unoccupied save for the trunks. Heze klah had vanished. Instead of sitting there to await tho coming of ber nunt, sho bad silently departed without leav ing a trace. Miss Holllster glanced up at tbo trapdoor In tho celling, and so did I. It was closed, but I did not doubt that Hezeklah bad crawled through It nnd taken herself to the roof. Miss Octavla would probably or der mo at once to the battlements, but worso was to come, "Mr. Ames," she said, "will you kind ly lift the ltd of that largest trunk?" I had not thought of this, and I shud dered at tbo possibilities. Sho Indicated tbo trnnk upon which Hezeklah had sat and nibbled ber Drnckcr not moro tbnn ten minutes be fore. Could It bo possible thnt when I lifted the cover thnt golden head would Ik found beneath? My life has knnwn no blncker moment than that in which I flung bnck the lid of thnt trunk. I averted my eyes In dread of tho Im pending disclosure nnd held the candle Aohc. But the trunk was empty. Incredibly empty! My courage rose again, and I glanced, at Miss Octavla triumphantly. I oven Jerked out the trays to alloy any lingering suspicion. Why hnd I ever doubted Hezeklah? Who was she, the golden hnlred daughter of kings, to be caught In n trunk? She had slipped up the ladder while I talked to her aunt and was even now hiding on the roof, but It Was not for tee to make so'tfeu sonnble a suggestion. Miss Octavla might press the matter further if she liked, but I would not help her to trap Hezeklah. Miss Holllster did not to my surprise and relief, suggest an Inspection of the roof. Sho nodded her head gravely nnd passed out Into the ball. "Mr. Ames, If 1 implied a moment ago that I doubted your story of the dropping of tbnt tan pump from a Beacon street roof or window, I now tender you my slncerest apologies." Sho put out her hand, mulling charm ingly. "I'rny return to tho occupations which wero engaging you wheu I interrupted you. You havo never stood higher in my regard than at this moment To morrow you mny tell mo all you plenso of tho ghost and the 'mysteries of this house, nnd I dare say wo shall llnd the bones- of that British soldier some whero beneath the foundations. As for that trilling bit of leather you bold In your band, It's rather pnsso for deacon street. Tho next tlmo you tell thnt story I suggest thnt you piny your gnme of drop tho slipper from u win dow of Iltttcnhouso square. Philadel phia." Hezeklah on tho roof wns safo for a time. Miss Octnvla's gentle rejection of my Beacon street anecdote nnd her I Intimation that nezeklnh had been an 1 unbilled participant of tho comedy of j thu ghost had been disquieting, nud In tny relief of her nbnndonment of tho search I loitered on downstairs with my hostess. I wished to Impress her with the Idea thnt I was without ur gent business. Hezeklah would, beyond doubt, amuse herself after her own fashion on tho roof until 1 was ready to release her. As I bad quietly locked tho trunk room door nnd carried the key In my pocket I wns rensonnbly sure of thts. Humility Is best acquired through tribulation, and as Hezeklah Bat among tho chimney crocks nursing ono stocklugod foot nud watting for mo to turn up with her loit slipper It would do her no harm to nibble the bitter fruit of repentance with another biscuit. CHAPTER XVII. Loss of the Silver NoUbook. tllK memoranda of my adven turos at Hopefleld Manor fall under two general headings. On tho one hand were tbo ghost and tho library chimney, on the other tbo extraordinary gatbortng of Cecilia's suitors. As I followed at Miss Octa vla's sldo sho scorned to havo dis missed tho ghost and tho fractious chluinoy from her mind. Her humor changed completely. As In tho morn ing, wbon, unaccountably abandoning ber habitual high flown speech, she had askod mo about Cecilia's stiver note book, sho seemed troubled, and wheu wo had reached tho second floor sho paused nnd lost herself In unwonted preoccupation. "Let us sit hero a moment," sho said, indicating a long davenport in the broad ball. For tho first time bor man ner betrayed weariness. Sho laid ber hand quietly on my arm and looked at me fixedly. "Arnold," sho said "you will lot mo call you Arnold, won't you?" sho added plaintively, and never In my llfo had I boon so touchod by anything bo sweet and gentlo and kind "Arnold, If an old woman like mo should do a very foolish thing In fol lowing her own whims and then find that she had probably committed her self to a course likely to cmibo unhap plness, what would you advtso her to do about It?" "Miss Holllster,'' I answered, "If you trusted I'rovldenco this morning to send you n corps of servants when yours hnd been most unfortunately scattered by ghosts or rumors of ghosts, why will you not continue to hnvo con fidence that your affairs will always lie directed by agencies equally nlert and benellcent? "I don't know tho gnme, but I hnvo found out n lot of things without being told, so toll mo nothing! Itcmcmbcr thnt I hnvo something quite remnrkn ble, startling oven, to show you tomor row. I ha u fvun overcome, you know, thu obstacle jou placed In tho wnv nf my discoveries by sending In n'bend 6T me this morn! ug for the plans of the house." I watched her narrowly, but she was In no wise discomfited. "Well, 1 burned them the moment Hilda brought them back' sbo laugh ed. "I had faith In you, nnd I wanted you to iqnnnge It all for yourself. 1 rather guessed thnt you would go to Peppcrton. Thnt was when I still be lieved." "But you must go on believing. Makebcllcvlng Is the main corneretona and the keystone of the arch of tho happy life." "You are sure you are not mocking a foolish old woman?" "You are the wisest woman 1 ever knew." I asserted, and my heart was In tlie words. "I believe you have persuaded me. but Cecllia"- "Lcave it to mo; trust me; lean upon me. I assure you that all will bo well." She bent her head and yielded her self to roverio for n moment Then sbo sprang to her feet In that Inde scribably light, graceful way that erased at least fifty of her years from the reckoning nud was herself again. "Arnold Ames." she said, laughing u little but gazing up at me with unmis takable confidence and liking in her eyes, "we will go through with this to tbo end. And whether that silDDer really fell at your feet In .Beacon street or in the even lee likely pre cincts of Rlttenhouse square or under tho windows of the Bpanlih embassy in Washington, I believe that you arc my good knight and that you will see me siifoly through thts singular adven ture. " And 1, 'Arnold Anies, but lately n student of chimneys, bent and kissed Miss Octavla's hand. Sho led the way to tho library, where I thought it well to appenr for a moment nnd I wns. heartily glad that I did so. It wns joy enough for any mnn that lie should have earned such glances of hatred nud suspicion ns tho suitors' bent upon me. There they were, somo standing, some seat ed, about Cecilia. I bowed low from tho door, feeling thnt to offer my bnnd to these gentlemen in their presont temper would be too sevcro a strain upon their manners. As Miss Octavla apponrcd sovcrnl of them advanced, courteously nnd engaged her In con versation. Sbo found a scat and call ed tho others to ber on tho plea that she wished to ask them their opinion touching somo matter. I believe it was n Inte rumor thnt Andree, who had gone ballooning to discover tho Uyporlioreans, bad been heard of somewhero. Cccllin appeared distrait and I won dered what new turn her affairs bad n m Bont and Kld Miss Octavla's .Hand, taken. Sbo roso as I crossed tho room, nnd from her manner l Judged that sho welcomed this chanco of address ing me. "You hnvo scorned tho library to night Has thoro been trouble? Is Aunt Octavla alarmed about any thing?" Cocllla wns a beautiful, charming woman of tho world, but I felt bor Bpelt less tonight It may bo that the presence of Ilezeklnh's slipper in my Insldo coat pockot pressing rather In sistently against my ribs, acted as a couutcrlrritant. "You aro in dllllculty, MUs Cecilia," I said, "rioaso tell mo in what way I mny Bervo you." "I don't know why I should appeal to you" "No reason Is nocessnry. I have told you beforo that you need only to com mand mo. Wo may bo Interrupted n any moment Pray go on." "I havo lost an nrtlclo of tho greatest valuo to mo. It has been tnkon from my room." Kor a moment only I read distrust and suspicion In ber eyes as It occur red to her that I had access to every part of tho houso, but my mnnnor. seemed to rustoro her confidence. And sho could not hnvo forgotten thnt her own father hnd met bur secretly on tho roof of a housu that wns denied him mid tlmt I was perfectly cognizant of tho fact "I mil Hiiro you can bo of assistance," she Bald. "Thero's something behind this ghost it'jry. Somo ono has been In nud about thu houso. You bellovo thnt?" "Yes. Tburu has really been n sort of gnosr, you Know." She shrugged her shoulders. Cecilia had no patience with ghosts, nnd we wero losing time. My conversation with Cecilia wns annoying Wiggins, as was plain from his norvousness. "I went to my room for a moment while Aunt Octavia was above, with you, i suppose, Just after the chimney gnvo another of its Btrango demonstra tions. I remombered that I bad left my little sliver bound book, that I usu ally carry with me, on my dressing room table. It contains a memoran dum of great Importance to me. It positively cannot be duplicated. 1 am sure it was there when, I came down to dinner. But It was not on my dress ing table or anywhere to bo found." "You may bo mistaken as to where yoa left it You would not be absolute ly positive that you left It on the dress ing table?" "There Is not the slightest question about it I bad been looking at it Just, before dinner. I had sent you a note, you know, immediately after you came back nnd hurried down to see you." "Yes; I recall that You were In tho library when 1 enmo down. And I think I remember having seen the little trinket slightly smaller than a card case, silver backed and only a few leaves. You bad it In your band the other night when t camo In after Mr. Hume hnd left." She flushed sllghtlyMtthts. but readi ly acquiesced In my description. Miss Octavla's inquiry ns to whether I bad seen the book came back to me and no less clearly her withdrawal of ber question almost the moment she had spoken It I felt the sudden Impingement of Hezeklah's slipper upon my own con science, If 1 may so state the matter. Hezeklah, playing' ghost had confessed to me thnt she had visited Cecilia's" room. Hezeklah, amusing herself with' the library chimney nnd frightontng the serVnnts by stealing Into the for bidden bouse through tho coalhole, was n culprit to be scolded and forgiven. But whnt of Jlczeklah mischievously filching an article of real value to her sister? I did not llko this turn of affairs. 1 must get bnck to the roof. And Hezeklah nud 'compel her to re turn (be silver book. Only by tnctfal ly mniiHglng this could I servo well nil the members of the house of Holllster. But tlrst I must lenvo Cecilia with n tranquil mind. "I thank you for confiding this mat ter to mu. Miss Holllster. Hease do nut attach suspicion to any ono until I have seen you ngaln." "But If you should be unnblc to re store" . "I assure you that the book Is not tost. It lias been mislaid, that's nil. I shall return It to you nt breakfast I glvu you my wuid." "Do you really mean ltV" shefnl- tored. "Plenso keep ,,. nut,( Octavla! I can't toll you how impor tant It is that she bo kept In ignorance of my loss. Tbo consequences, if she knew, might bo vory distressing." Miss Octavla was carrying tho In vincible John Stowart Dick away to the billiard room. He glared at me murderously as be trailed glumly after the lady of the manor. The others were crowding about Cecilia again, and I yielded to them willingly. As I sauntered toward the door Ormsby de tained me a moment His manner was arrogant and he hissed rathor than spoke. "I'm directed to command your pres ence at the Prescott Arms tomorrow at 13 o'clock. The business Is Impor- Unt" 1W "t regret my dear brother, that-1 """- hall bo unable to alt with you nt that boar in committee of tho whole, ond for two reasons. The first is that I am paired with Lord Arrowood, You refused to tako him into your base compact nnd allowed him to bo thrown out of the inn for not paying his bill. The act was deficient In generosity and gallantry." "Then 1 suppose you would think It a One thing for such "a pauper to marry a woman like that like that I say?" and ho Jerked his head toward Cecilia. "I consider n lord of Arrowood aa good as the proprietor of a knitting mill any day, if you press me for an opinion," I replied amiably. "And this from a chimney sweep?" be sneered. . "Yon flatter me, my dear dr. Pve renounced soot and become a gentle man adventurer merely to prevent a type that long illumined popular Ac tion from becoming extinct I advise you to All the void existing in the heavy villain class. Believe me, your talents would carry yoa far. Study Dumas and .forget the wool market and yoa will lead a happier life. My second reason for declining to meet you at the Arms at 12 tomorrow' Is merely that tho hour la Inconvenient I ossumo that you mean to urge lunch eon upon me, and I never eat before L My doctor has warned me to avoid early luncheons if I would preservo my figure, of which you may well believe i me Justly p-o'td."
