Hooke 'Continued.) 1 nave no mystic power to read the I mind or the heart of another, but I perceived clearly enough that Mr.' Bnrnham was in love with Miss Vaughn and that she did not find her self able to respond. To settle this point I ventured to say that I had heard she was quite pretty. "Pretty!" echoed Burnham. "Well, that's hardly the word I I happen to have a portrait of her." And he pretended to forget which pocket it was in. It was an ordinary cabinet photograph, but it showed a most extraordinary face, a dainty com posite of womanly and childish quali ties. I would not have been able to de cide from this picture whether Miss Vaughn was fifteen years old or twenty-five, and after my first glance I look ed up at Burnham and asked, "How old is she?" He laughed. "You'd be as much puzzled if you saw the original." he said, and this proved to be no exaggeration. "The youth, I think, is in the lower part of the face. What a pretty mouth and chin! Did you ever see such a pretty, mouth and chin? There's all the dim pled sweetness, all the quick sensitive ness of girlhood, and yet no weakness. But there's a calmness in the forehead and eyes the eyes a bit long, as you notice, with very delicately marked brows. The eyes are deep blue and all the coloring exquisite. Her hair is like the gold of Ophir. It may seem bad taste for me to run on like this," he added suddenly, "but Miss Vaughn's beauty is such a simple and natural thing that one feels no hesitation in speaking of it. Why, even in her pres ence I sometimes find myself howev er, that's neither here nor there. You asked how old she was. She'll be eighteen next week." "If the young lady's peculiar powers are of interest to science," said I, "it would seem as if some financial ar rangement might be made whereby" "We've suggested that, but she won't listen to it," he interrupted. "The queer part of it is that Miss Vaughn insists that she has no powers which are not shared by all our apecies. She has, though." j vVe had reached Burnham's lodgings by this time, and there we conversed for an hour or more upon the subject of the experiments which had been made in the case of Miss Vaughn. They seemed to me to possess, the vague and unsatisfactory character which I had learned to associate with common fraudulent practices. The young lady answered questions con cerning matters of which she was sup posed to have no knowledge, peculiar ities of persons whom she had not seen, incidents in the lives of the ques tioners or of their friends. It was not able that she passed into no state of trance or mesmeric sleep. She remain ed entirely normal, not even exhibiting the excessive fatigue which usually follows such manifestations. She did show repugnance, however, and was always more pleased when she failed than when she succeeded. After a se ries of failures she would laugh almost hysterically and display a childish re lief and delight. Her successes de pressed her. The best of them, so far as I could learn, were not conclusive, but there were some that were hard to explain upon any natural hypothesis, and they must have been extremely startling to the inquirers. As Burnham continued to speak I be came less hopeful of Miss Vaughn as a possible subject of investigation, less interested in her as a psychic, but far more interested in her as a woman. Somehow the words of this fiery but hopeless lover, this poor little, thin, dark, ugly faced fellow, who had no right to crave a beautiful woman ex cept that he couldn't help it built up before my mind's eye a very charming personality. I talked the matter over with Hack ett, and we agreed that Miss Vaughn was undoubtedly worthy of substantial assistance, if it could be rendered with out offense. Her situation was cer tainly most lamentable and involved no fault of her own. Having heard of this case, we could hardly "pass by on the other side," as Hackett ex pressed it. The fact is that my part ner had been playing the role of the good Samaritan in many towns that we had visited, and mostly to the unde serving, I am afraid, We decided that I should call upon Miss Vaughn, and so I asked Burnham to secure her permission; but he told me very promptly that he did not care to undertake the errand. "I couldn't lie to her," said he. "She'd have to know the object of your visit here, and then she wouldn't see you." Incidentally 1 learned during this conversation that Miss Vaughn was an intellectual prodigy, having been the( youngest girl ever graduated from Smith college. Indeed, she would prob-j ably not have been admitted to that institution if her age had been correct-! ly stated, but her. aunt had misrepre-1 sented the matter to the authorities.; Her record had been exemplary, both for scholarship and conduct. I 'Sfc Ufiht teach." said DSON. Rnrnhana -ssjc. Being a True Record and Explanation of the Seven Mysteries Now Associated With His Name In the Public Mind, and of an Eighth. Which Is the Key of the Seven By HOWARD FIELDING "but I really don't see how she's going to live till we can find her a position." After leaving Burnham's room I went at once alone to the Eustia residence, which must have been considered quite a grand house in its day. A despondent old woman answered my ring and ad mitted me into a chilling, gloomy at mosphere and eventually into a small room at the rear of the hall. It had the look of neglect, as if it had not been used in some weeks. My eye was at tracted by a small table unlike the other' furniture and awkwardly placed near a window. It waf littered with loose sheets of writing paper, which were dusty, and some or them were covered with scrawls in pencil as if a child had played with them. (To be Continued.) IN THE THIRD DISTRICT Everything Was Done by Acclamation There Today. Indianapolis, April 21. The Third district Republican congressional con vention was held at New Albany to day. W. L. Taylor of this city, War ren G. Sayre of Wabash, and Judge Penfield or Auburn, candidates for gov ernor, left here on an early morning train to attend. George Self of Cory don, candidate for reporter of the su preme and appellate courts, accompan ied them. He is now the only Third district candidate, and he was enthusi astically indorsed there today. J. F. Dillion of Jasper, Dubois county, was nominated for congress and Sam Wul fram of rfuntingburg, and Harry Mc Grain of Coryuon for delegates to the national convention ?' Chicago. Ev erything was done by acclamation. This is a strong Democratic district, but the candidate for congress has strong hopes of cutting down the ma jority. The Third will send a large delegation to Indianapolis to work for the nomination of Self. The latter. by the way, will be the only old soldier candidate before the convention, as he is a veteran of the war of the '60s. After tomorrow all of the candidates for places on the Republican state ticket will open headquarters at the Hotel English, and then the real strug gle will begin. Taylor is going tc move over trom the State Life build ing, where he has had a large force busy for some -time. Hanly and Pen- field have been at the English for sev eral days. Hugh Th. Miller and Perry Newby, the candidates for lieutenant governor, are now there, and Sayre says he will be on hand Saturday. Self, Smith, Nash and Corwin, the candi dates for reporter of the supreme and appellate courts, will have their head quarters Sn running order by tomor row nignt. None of the candidates seem superstitious, as they are going ahead with their headquarter opening tomorrow regardless of the fact that it is Friday. The vanguard of the party workers is here, and by Satur day night k is fully expected that be tween two and three hundred will be on hand. The work of building the platform for the Republican state convention this year will not be so difficult, as it is the general understanding that there will be a "stand pat" policy. However, the matter is to receive very careful attention, and Monday night there will be a conference to which the members of congress, Senators Fairbanks and Beveridge, Addison C. Harris, Judge A. O. Marsh. Governor Durbln and other state officials will be invited by Chairman Goodrich. It is probable that the document will be framed up and ready for the commit tee on resolutions to be appointed the following morning. Among the im portant features will be the indorse ment of the candidacy of President Roosevelt, Senator Beveridge for re election, the policy of the state admin istration and the action of the Indiana Republican delegation in congress. The appointment of Harry Adams of this city as sergeant at arms for the Republican state convention is satis factory to all the candidates. The pub lic does not realize what a hard job it is to select a man for this position who is satisfactory to all the men who want places on the ticket. To the average politician, however, the advan tage of having a sergeant at arms on your side is obvious, and it was that feature that made the selection diffi cult. All of the candidates are watch ins their opponents now like hawks to keep them from getting any. ad van tage, but they are not worried much about Adams, who is generally known as a fair man. Herrlck Calls a Halt. Columbus, O., April 21. Governor Herrick has sent a message to the leg islature calling a halt in appropria tions. He declares that unless the rev enues of the state are increased $500, 000 appropriations made and contem plated must be reduced nearly $1,000, 000 to prevent a deficit. He suggests that the appropriation of $80,000 for a governor's residence be eliminated, urges a direct inheritance tax law and the proposed constitutional amend ment pn taxatjoa which be says w.quld give the state a large revenue from "fugitive property now listed outside the state. - . ,: - . ;.. : Slot Machines Take Flight. Bedford, Ind., April 21.' The agita tion aroused since the prevent city campaign began between the three candidates for mayor on the Republi can, Democrat and Citteens' tickets has swept out the slot machines, run ning for the' last two years in every saloon in 'the city, and not one is now doing business. The owners of these machines became alarmed over the pressure of public opinion, fearing that it eventually would compel the author ities to act, and the machines were boxed up and sent to Linton. It Is Now Judge Hunt. Washington, April 21. Tho nomina tion of Governor William H. Hunt of Porto Rico as the successor to Judge Hiram Knowles as United States dis trict judge in Montana, has been con firmed by the senate. Governor Hunt expects to return to Porto Rico to con clude his work there before assuming his new duties. Will Go to Oregon. Crawfordsville, Ind., April 21. The Rev. Harry N. Mount, ron of the late Governor James A -Mount, has accept ed a call to the pastorate of the Pres byterian church at Eugene, Ore. Mr. Mount has practically recovered his health, and he feels equal to the task of resuming ministerial work. Muskrats Jeopardize Life. Carbondale, 111., April 21 The old Equality coal mine was flooded by muskrats burrowing around the shaft and the bank of the Saline river, and 100 miners had a narrow escape from drowning. The men were at work when the alarm was given that water was pouring ir.to the mine. Immedi ately thev crowded into the hoists, and by the t.me the last men were taken out they were standing in water up to their necks. It is estimated that it will take nearly a week to pump the hiine out. Alleged Conspirator Released. St. Petersburg, April 21. Ludmila Re.nianikoff, one of the members of the "fighting organization of the Rus sian revolutionists," who was tried with Dr. Guershovnia, Aaron Viben field, Michael Melkinoff and Faen Grigorieff April 18 on the charge of complicity in the Terrorist plot which resulted in the assassination of several important officials, including M.
