Conclusion.
When the little martinet thus an
nounced his decision it created some
thing of an excitement.
Hildegarde's face lost Its pallor, and
Paul smiled grimly, at the same time
he kept an eye on Aimee.
Just as he expected, the baffled
countess aimed to carry out a desper
ate plan.
"It is a lie, a base forgery, a trick
to deceive fools; but it cannot hood
wink me. What Is this you say—that
the man shall go free, he, caught red
handed in the act, a spy, a hated Ger
man spy, fit only for the halter? And
you dare to say that, you who swore
on bended knees that my word should
be law?"
The poor major, victim of cross
purposes, could only shrug his shoul-
I ders.
r "There is a previous oath, ma’mselle,
my vow to my country to obey my
superiors. That is above life to me.
since my honored name is involved.
Even for you I dare not order my
men to arrest one who is under the
protection of such a sacred document,
‘written by Marshal Bazaine him
self.’ ”
The countess, apparently cheated
out of her prey, and deserted by an
ally whom she had believed could be
depended upon through thick and
thin, looked about her sullenly. Des
peration had made her temporarily
mnd, and she would risk even her own
destruction in order to gain revenge.
From figure to figure this glance
went —and then he saw a fierce Joy
flash over her face.
It was as though she had discov
ered that all was not yet quite lost.
Ah! it was Karl!
Remembering as he did that the
other had candidly confessed he was
in Metz as a secret agent of the Ger
man forces, no wonder Paul felt a
sudden fall of his spirits when he
recollected that the magic document
of his British friend would not cover
two companions, and that tne dread
ful fate of death at the hands of the
mob, from which he had just escaped
by a mere scratch, would probably be
the doom of his friend and brother,
poor Karl.
Still keeping her eyes glued upon
. Karl, the countess once more ad
* dressed the major, resolved to test the
last remainder of her power over that
worthy.
"One has escaped us. you say. but
do not forget, my friend, there are
two. Yonder man, his comrade, is
the spy we seek. You prate of your
snered duty as a soldier —let us see
some of it now —arrest that mnn and
search him for positive evidence of
his guilt."
The major woke up. He was once
more the warrior bold, eager to faith
fully serve the woman he adored.
Heaven help the poor devil upon
whom his concentrated wrath now
fell, for. having been held in the leash
so long the fighting major was apt to
be exceedingly ferocious.
However, if the bellicose soldier an
ticipated any quailing on the part of
Karl Von Stettin, he made the most
grievous mistake of his life.
The young Heidelberg philosopher
even smiled as brightly as one could
wish.
lr. fact, he even appeared pleased to
have all eyes concentrated in his di
rection.
This was not braggadocio.
What could It mean?
Beatrix crept up beside Karl, and
caught hold of his arm.
Her action could not be mistaken—
it meant as plainly as those words of
old which Ruth spoke to Naomi:
} "Whither thou goest I shall go. thy
country shall be my country, thy God
God my God."
Karl put an arm around the girl
and strained her to his heart.
And into Hildegarde’s cheeks, hith
erto as white as marble, the color
surged, as the light of a great revela
tion began to force its way.
Paul, then, was not lost —he had not
been unfaithful—he was all her most
fervid fancy had ever painted him—
and deep down in her heart she knew
be loved her.
No wonder, then, she glowed with
sudden hope and the world took on a
new brightness —after all, it is our
condition of mind that makes or mars
the scene. To the happy soul even a
dreary day of rain affords seasons of
rejoicing.
Thus one good thing had come about
through this concentration of atten
tion upon Karl.
Utterly helpless himself, in so far
as assisting his comrade was con
cerned, Paul could only turn to watch
the progress of events, praying that
Sir Noel could see the way to lend a
hand, or that Karl himself might
have a card concealed up his sleeve
that would sweep the board.
"Your name?" demanded the major,
gruifly, as he frowned upon the smil
ing young student-soldier, who stood
with one arm thrown reassuringly
around the girl.
k "Karl Von Stettin," came the
" prompt reply.
"Native of Germany?”
"It la true.”
“You belong to the army of the
Crown Prince?”
“Yes.”
“Have you been a prisoner on pa
role, the same as this gentleman?”
Karl shook his head in the negative,
while the others hung upon his words
eagerly, waiting for the light that was
so slow in coming—Karl seemed so
positive, so utterly reckless of conse
quences that one could almost believe
he expected a corps of the Feldwache
with their spiked helmets to a pear
upon the scene whenever he chose to
turn wizard and utter the magical
words that insured their coming.
"I have not. Monsieur le Major,” he
said, iirmly.
"Ah! Then you freely admit that
you. a German soldier of the line, have
entered Metz for some purpose other
than sight-seeing?” eagerly.
Karl did not hesitate an Instant in
replying.
“Even that is true,” he said, calmly.
Whereat Paul mentally groaned, and
the Britisher elevated his eyebrows in
surprise, for both of them believed
the frank soldier of the Rhine was
giving himself bodily into the hands
of the enemy.
"Since you have confessed that your
mission is that of a spy. there is no
other course open for me but to con
vey you to a dungeon and put your
case before a drumhead court. Resist
ance. you realize, is utterly useless. I
shall proceed to have you searched on
the spot, so that you may not get rid
of any incriminating evidence.”
"Ah. do.” said Karl, composedly,
“since it will save me very much
trouble in explaining certain facts
which had better been whispered in
your private ear—facts that your com
mander most particularly desired
should be kept secret.”
His words, of course, aroused the
major’s curiosity. Since seeing the
magic paper carried by the English
man. he was fearfully afraid of ex
ploding some other hidden mine.
"Come, monsieur.” said the accom
modating major, "you are concealing
something from me—something I
should know."
"Something you shall know.” de
clared the other, placidly, nodding and
smiling. "It is for your car alone,
Monsieur lc Major."
The soldier waddled forward, while
the countess hissed and showed her
utter disgust by crying:
“Fool! coward! you would lose all!"
Karl spoke a few sentences in a low
tone.
Whatever their Import, they startled
the French major, who looked at him
in amazement.
"Can you show me the proof?" he
demanded, hoarsely.
Apparently it was the fashion to
produce papers, for Karl took one
from some concealed pocket.
Paul had a glimpse of it. and felt
sure the peculiar chirography was ex
actly the same as that which char
acterized the Bazalne letter or pass
port Sir Noel carried.
At any rate, the cfTect upon the ma
jor was quite as startling—his hand
trembled as it held the magical docu
ment. and his little eyes glowed like
sparks of Are.
"Enough." he cried, handing it back
to Karl hastily. "I have come upon
a fool’s errand. There are no spies
in Metz —there will be no need of any
after to-morrow, the 27th. for Metz
will no longer be ours. Sergeant, take
your men ofT. Go and tie crepe upon
your left arms, soldiers of France, for
we are undone.”
Evidently the gallant fighter had
read that which chilled his heart.
The order was given.
Tramp, tramp, tramp, the tall guards
marched out of the room—tramp,
tramp, trump, they went down the
stairs until all had disappeared.
Those who were left stood and
stared.
"Gentlemen —ladies—I congratulate
you on the very happy outcome of this
adventure —for you. Pardon my un
warranted intrusion, and. bon soir.”
With this the stout, discomfited ma
jor betook himself off. accompanied by
the countess, whose angry voice could
be heard far down the stairs as she be
rated him for not taking drastic meas
ures to accomplish their desired end
in spite of the commandant and his
passports.
Already Beatrix was clasped in her
lover’s arms, and the sight must have
inspired Paul, for he immediately
strode over to where the blushing
nurse stood.
“Hildegarde. once I told you that a
Rhinelander never loved twice. I
failed then', to explain my meaning—
kept back by a dreadful fear of a fam
ily secret. 1 have found a mother and
a sister, and you must hear the sad
story connected with the past of this
parent it is now my duty to love and
cherish. After that, if you do not look
down on me because of the shame upon
my name, I want to tell you of my love
for you. which will live to the end of
my life, whether I win your consent to
be my wife or not.
And Hildegarde put her hand in his.
like the noble, true-hearted girl she
was. saying:
"My heart has been yours this lon-;
time, Herr Paul—take my hand and
all I have with It. I do not wish to
hear the story now —at some other
time, perhaps. Stop, do not insist. I
may have an idea as to the truth, but
it is enough for me to know you are
innocent. I am only too happy to
trust my whole future in your hands.”
What could he say?
He sealed the compact as any bold
lover would have done, and the bar
gain made while German shells still
exploded in the streets of Metz was
founded upon such mutual respect and
perfect faith that neither could ever
regret it.
The sturdy Briton appeared to be
especially tickled over the fnct that
Karl had seen his lead and gone him
one better in the way of legerdemain.
“You came very near ending our
friend for good. I declare, the major
was so staggered his life hung by a
thread.” he laughed.
Perhaps there was a tinge of curios
ity in his tone.
“You heard enough to give you an
inkling of the truth, gentlemen, and
now I feel In duty bound to tell all. I
am not In Metz as a spy. though I
thought it my duty to allow even Paul
here to believe it for a time, as my
mission was supposed to be a dead
secret. On the contrary, I have come
here at the written solicitation of Mar
shal Bazaine, who desires to discover
the best terms he could secure for his
brave army of the Rhine.
“At first he demanded that there be
some allowance made for their emi
gration to Algiers, which the Crown
Prince declined, and matters have be
come so bad that the French com
mander has agreed to an unconditional
surrender. At midnight I shall go out
of Metz hearing his acceptance, and
after that time, when this document Is
In the hands of the Crown Prince, not
another bomb will fall within these
walls, for Metz will have fallen.”
Paul looked delighted, and even the
non-partisan Briton seemed pleased to
know the era of bloodshed in this par
ticular region was at an end.
"Thank God!" he said, reverently,
“then pence will follow when Paris
also falls.”
"Yes. we have much to be thankful
for.” said Paul, -glancing toward Hil
degarde.
As for the doctor, spying a bottle of
wine with three glasses upon a side
hoard, he poured sorao into the crystal
receptacles.
"Gentlemen, Join with me In this
toast—here's to the gallant major!”
“And may he escape the almost uni
versal fate of those who worship at
Almee's shrine.” added the Rhine
lander. earnestly.
And so they drank It down.
Idttle did they guess that at the
very moment Countess Aimee was be
ing carried Into the hospital, a victim
of an exploding Prussian shell, and
that if she lived through the dreadful
shock It would he as a helpless wreck
cf her past beautiful self.
The Judgment had come at last, and
in this hour her myriad victims wero
avenged.
What more need he said?
Paul and Karl served until Paris fell
and peace came upon the stricken fields
of France.
There is no necessity to tell how
they married, and what Joys or sor
rows came their way. for this world
holds its share of both for all who
love and who are chosen.
Paul tenderly cared for his mother
the rest of her years, and at her re
quest finally laid her away In tho
American cemetery, where rested tho
husband who had been so fearfully
wronged, yet who. with his last dying
breath, had pardoned all in the great
ness of his love, believing that to those
who have sinned much. If they truly
repent, everything shall be forgiven.
THE END.

The following story was once told by
Dr. John Marshall, dean of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, during a lec
ture:
“There lived in a small English vil
lage a curate whose custom it was to
drive his horses tandem. His parish
ioners evidently thought such a stylo
was unbecoming for a minister' and
spoke to him on the subject. Their
words had no effect, and they com
plained to the bishop. The bishop sent
for the curate and advised him to drive
his horses side by side*.
“ 'But,' said the curate, ‘what dif
ference does It make whether I drive
my horses side by side or tandem? The
horses are the same, and there is only
a difference of position.’
“ 'That's just it. my good man,’ said
the bishop—'the position. Now, when
I extend my hands this way,’ and he
stretched them over the curate's head,
'it's a sign of a blessing, but when I
put them this way,’ and the bishop
placed one hand in front of the other
before his nose, ‘lt is a sign of deri
sion.* ”

President Tucker of Dartmouth Col

number of summers on a farm in New
Hampshire. During the past year,
however, the pedagogue was greatly
annoyed by two things—the proxim

the “hired girl.” Therefore when the
owner of the farm wrote to him recent
ly. asking whether he would
have the president of Dartmouth a3

cided negative, stating his reasons for
not wishing to return. In a few days
he received the following reply:

Evictions in Ireland.
A return has been Issued showing
the number of evictions that have
taken place in Ireland since the 1st
ot May. 1879. and how the farms have
since been occupied. The estates
dealt with are seventeen In number,
and include the Clanrlcarde, Ponson
by. Lansdowne. Masserene and Olp
hert properties. The Important fact
disclosed is that out of a total num
ber of 1448 evicted farms referred to In
the return, only 18 were lying derelict
on the 1st of February last. On the
Clanrlcarde estate, where the total
number of evicted farms was 252, 1*5
are still lying derelict. One-half of
the evicted farms on Clanrl
carde's property have been let-to new
tenantR, and 9*1 have been re-let to old

have been let to new tenants, and 323
have been purchased by old tenants.
Colored Man’s Remarkable Memory.
At a littfb dinner the other night the
statement was made that the colored
race had longer memories than white
folk. Mark Twain, who was present,
agreed with the remark, and to prove
it told the following:
• .Some years ago, when South. I met
an old colored man who claimed to
have known George Washington. I
nsked him if he was in the boat when
Gen. Washington crossed the Dela
ware. and he instantly replied, ’Lor',
Massa, I steered dat boat.*
• •Well,’ said I. 'do you remember
when George took the hack at the
cherry tree?'
••He looked worried for a minute,
and then, with a beaming smile, said:
" ’Why sauh, Massa, I dun drove dat
hack mahself.’ ” —New’ York Times.

dint of a strong will and an inheritance
or the truest graces of life: simplicity,
the domestic affections, and the love of
nature and one’s kind. It is to the cul

Pianos and Organs
We have an accumulation of new
and used piano* which we have
priced to go quickly.
New pianos in 1901 patterns,
pianos of reliable makes we do not
regularly carry in stock; pianos we
have taken in trade and pianos that
have been rented, some two months
and some no more than one month.
We guarantee every one of them.
Upright pianos at $l3O, $lBO to
$225 and $3OO. Better terms than
you can get elsewhere. Better write
to-day for complete list and prices.
