Hooka (Continued.) "You have been very courteous and sincere In this matter," said Donaldson earnestly, "and I am unwilling to dis oblige you. Tell just what happened, Harold, as briefly as you can and get it over with." He subsided into an attitude of pas sive endurance. "These are the facts," said Whiting. "Donaldson was in Harvard when 1 was a student in the medical scbool and a protor in one of the buildings. That's how I came to know him." "Broke up a riot in my room," inter jected Donaldson. "We had knocked down the chandelier. It's a proctor's duty to preserve order. Whiting came in with an Indian club in each hand and preserved it" "After graduation he came to New York," continued Whiting. "His broth er was here Henry, about ten years older than Donald. I was taking a spe cial course of study in this city at the time. Henry Donaldson was a note teller in the Dey Street bank, and he had the misfortune to become Involved in the trouble there about three years ago. You may remember it." "Not definitely," said I. "Somebody got away with $150,000," said Whiting. "Of course I need not say that Henry Donaldson was entire ly Innocent, but circumstances, and men, too, conspired against him. He was arrested and almost immediately released, but only that he might be dogged by detectives. "He was abnormally sensitive re garding anything that affected his good name, and he was always easily dis couraged. He wa convinced that the combination against him was too strong and that he must eventually be dis graced and ruined. He could not bear the prospect, and so he took a false step to avoid it. He fled, and nobody had the least idea where he had gone "Donaldson was ill in bed in some rooms of mine up town. We supposed that Henry knew where he was, but the poor fellow had been so hounded up and down and was so oppressed by the disgrace that he had kept out of everybody's way. My communication to him about Donald was stolen by the detectives. He received no word at all, and, as we discovered long after ward, he was led Into the distressing error of supposing that Donald was disloyal to him in this trouble. Noth ing could have been further from the truth. "When Henry did not come to see bim. as we had expected, Donald got out of bed, though he could hardly stand upon his feet, and went out to find his brother. But Henry was far away by that time, and not even the detectives themselves were more ig norant than we were as to his where abouts. "For a week or more the newspapers located him In fifty different places, and Donald himself got wind of many Idle rumors. That sort of thing is agonizing. I don't like to think of what Donald suffered. Finally we learned that the detectives in the case had reached the conviction that Henry had committed suicide by leaping from an ocean steamer. Some poor fellow made that pitiful ending, and for my own part I firmly believed that it was Henry Donaldson. "Alnjpst a year later, bowevoc we fUR. PIERCERS FAVORITE PRESCRIPTION CURES BACKACHE NERVOUSNESS HEADACHE AND Being a True Record and Explanation of the Seven Mysteries Now Associated With Hb Name In tbe Public Mhd. and of an Eighth. Which b the Key of the Seven R By HOWARD FIELDING "The devil!" he muttered. "T.h is odd! got word that "Henry had been seen in a lumber camp In the northwest. heard of it first and secretly attempted an investigation, sending a detective out into that region. His first comniu nication to me seemed favorable, and decided that it would be worth while for Donald to go out there. 1 took two or three fellows whom I could trust into my confidence, and we agreed to put up the necessary money. We all wanted Henry Donaldson to come back and face his accusers, -and we be lieved that we could clear him. "We made a plan to lunch together and have Donald with us and then dis close the whole subject to him. So we met about noon one day and went to a private room in Ilobart's restaurant up town. Donald did not know what was in the wind, but for some days his mind had been running upon his broth er, and he looked all broken up with it. As he and I were going to Hobart's that day he said to me: " 4I am sick with anxiety about Har- ry. " 'You don't believe that he is dead? said I. " 'I never have,' he replied. 'I can't "Nothing more was said upon the subject just then, and it was not men tioned while we were eating luncheon. This was by agreement. Donald was very silent during the meal. He ate scarcely anything. He was pale and in a peculiar state of nervous tension. I observed him with considerable anxi ety, for he looked like a man who is going to break down. "We had reached the cigars, and the waiter was well out of the way. One of the fellows made a sign to me to open the subject that was on our minds. I turned toward Donald. He started as if from a dream and said in a hurried, stz-ange voice: " 'Harry is all right.' "Then the color rushed into his face, which had been very pale. He reeled in his chair, and I put up my hand to catch him. '"What do you mean? I asked. "I saw him,' he said. 'I saw him. He's all right. He's coming home.' "That was all that we could get out of him at first, and we did not know what to make of It. Finally I told him frankly just why we were there and what we had learned, i " 'No,' he said; it's all a mistake. He's not in any lumber camp. I don't know where he Is. I never saw any such place before. I think it's in China from the look of it.' "Of course we tormented him with questions, and at last we got an ac curate description of what he had seen. Why, he even described the furniture in the room and the view from the window. " 'There was a man sitting at a table whom I think I should have known if he hadn't been back to me,' said he. 'My brother was sitting opposite, and there was some sort of document on the table between them. My brother has grown a beard. By heavens!' he cried sud denly. 'The other man was Joe Vinal!' "Vinal was receiving teller of the Dey Street bank. He had been slight ly implicated in the robbery and had lost his place in the bank on account of it, but had not been arrested. That he should have joined Henry Donald son in a far corner of the world was not altogether a favorable circum stance, and I asked Donald why he had said so confidently that his brother was all right " T know by the look of him,' he re plied, 'and I heard him say that he was coming home. "Donald pledged us all to secrecy in this matter, and I think the promise has been fairly well kept That after noon Donald and I made an investiga tion into the case of Vinal and learned that he had left New York and that his-whereabouts were unknown. His wife, who was a beautiful woman of fine descent, was living in this city, but she had had no word of her husband in six weeks. She told me that he had left the city suddenly upon some mat ter of business which she did not un derstand. He had been In very bad health, and .she was extremely anxloui about him. ... "That was all the information that we could get About a week later Donald got a cable message from hla brother. It came from Hongkong and was addressed to my apartments. - It said: 'Am coming home; westward. Everything all right' ' "By subsequent messages we traced him to the Mediterranean and Gibral tar and learned what steamer was bringing him to this country. He was ill of acute gastritis when he arrived, and 1 thought that we should hardly get him off the steamer alive. But he rallied and seemed on the road - to mend. "It appeared that he had gone from this country to Japan and had lived Id one of the smaller cities. He brought photographs of his abode there and of a view from a certain window. I have never been able to be a skeptic upon things occult since seeing that photo graph. He told us that be had lived almost in secret; that he bad nevei dared communicate with Donald for fear that the message would fall into wrong hands and reveal his hiding place. "One day he was amazed to see Joe Vinal, at his door. How this man traced him he never learned.- Vinal was dying. Only his purpose had sup ported him through the latter part of the journey. He made a complete rev elation of the inner facts of the bank robbery, in which he himself was the principal criminal. This statement was sworn to before the American consul, and a few days later Vinal died. Hen ry Donaldson went to Hongkong and thence home, bringing the statement which was put into tV hands of the bank's .officials, who used it to extort as complete restitution as possible from Vinal's accomplices, and the matter was kept quiet through the usual In fluences, except that a card was pub lished exonerating Donald's brother. He seemed to be perfectly satisfied with this, though it was not very defl nite. Ileally the poor fellow was done with earth. He died as many men and women die who might live, but have not the will. "In conclusion I have only this to say: So far as we can learn Donald's vision was perfectly accurate. It show ed Vinal laying his written confession before Henry Donaldson. But the vi sion occurred about eight hours before the event. I leave the explanation of this phenomenon to any one who thinks himself competent I am not "You may be disposed to suggest that Henry Donaldson had communi cated with his brother unknown to me. In regard to this I have not only Donald's word, but Henry's, and you will bear in mind that I attended Hen ry in his last illness, so that, aside from the lack of motive for his telling me a falsehood, we must consider also the respect that is usually accorded to the statement of a dying man. "Moreover, Henry could not have communicated the fact of the confes sion, because he knew nothing about it himself until some hours after, it was known to us. It must be remem bered also that Donald was entirely Ignorant of his brother's whereabouts even after hv had had the vision. He had the sensation of being in that room and of looking across the table toward the window, and from the as pect of the eountrj' he supposed that the scene was in China." CHAPTER IV. AN EXCEPTIONAL MATCH. A S Whiting ceased Hackett drew a long breath and looked at me. "A little ahead of anything we've found yet. John." said he. "Have you ever tried to figure the thing out in your own mind. Mr. Donaldson?" The young man shoolx his head. "I know what I saw." he said, "but I don't know what was back of it and I am inclined to think." he added, with a smile, "that it is much tbe same with ail we see, however simple. There is a mystery behind that teacup which no man alive can solve." "We know that it will hold our tea," said Hackett, "but this psychic busi ness doesn't seem to have any bottom." I asked whether any one knew why Vinal bad not made his confession in this country. "He went to beg my brother's par don and to die forgiven." said Donald son. "He put his confession into the hands of the man who had been wronged." A general conversation followed in which Donaldson appeared to far greater advantage than before. The telling of the stoi y seemed to have tak en a weight off his mind. Both Hack ett and myself wore pleased with him, and we resolved to carry out our orig inal intention of taking him into our employ. We did hot speak of the mat ter until after Whiting had left us. He had said in the beginning that he could be with us not more than half an hour. When he had gone, I explained to Donaldson that we had been con sidering him with reference to a posi tion of importance in our business, and I named the duties, the salary and the prospects. He was to be Mr. Hackett's assistant inourdepartmentof sales. We were then introducing a system of disposing of our goods which was entirely unique in this country, and we required a young man of good appearance, of cultivated mind and manner and especially of that quick, intuitive perception which is so valuable in dealing with the high est grade of merchants. The right man, coming to us with the proper en ergy and ability, might hope for any thing, up to an interest In our business, that would make him more than well to do. It all depended upon himself. Donaldson received this proposal with a solemnity which justified his college nickname of "deacon," by which we had heard Dr. Whiting ad dress him. . (To be Continued.) '3 Congress Is Expected to Wind Up It , Affairs Thursday. Washington, April ' 25. Long ; dar and night sessions are the program In the house this week, as the leaders plan to end the session Thursday. To day Mr. Williams, the minority lead ery was given consideration of his res olutlons calling on thet attorney gen eral, first for information of any prose cution by him of the interested parties In the Northern Securities company, and, second, what has been the result of any investigation he has made of the coal trust The conference report on the post office appropriation bill is to be con sidered tomorrow. The Alaska dele gate bill Is before the house as a "con tinuing order" to be considered in the absence cf conference reports, which are yet to come on the military acad emy, the general deficiency and the sundry civil appropriation bills. There undoubtedly will be many requests for consideration of minor matters by unanimous consent, and the outlook Is declared by the leaders to indicate an exceedingly busy wind-up. The time of the senate will be de voted wholly to clearing the calendar preparatory to adjournment,, which mo3t senators still say will occur dur ing the present week. There remains only one appropriation bill to be pass ed by the senate, that for the military academy. A number of the supply bills are still in conference, however, and It is expected there will be more or less discussion of conference re ports. The general calendar is very heavy, and an effort will be made to pass as many of these measures as possible. There are' a number of pro visions in the military academy bill which will be debated at some length, and it is probable that the conference report on the canal zone government bill will lead to debate.
