Donald walked to one of the windows I and stood there, moodily staring out. Not knowin.; just what to say. I busied myself in wrapping up the papers and returning thew to the safe. "Can this be confidential, uncle," said Donald--everything that hap pens between us this afternoon? Why bother my father with it yet? Let's wait until we get to the bottom of it." "I'm willing. Donald." said 1. "if you think it important." "It is indeed." he replied. "And now before you lock up the safe I'll give you this." ie drew a great roll of money from the side pocket of 1:is sack coat. "Mr. Gillespie was suspicious that the amount might be a trifle short," he said. "It is. There's $5,000 missing almost all the smaller bills." I was so overpowered by surprise that I did not at first notice this new instance of the accuracy with which bonald could quote remarks which were not made in his presence. He had repeated Gillespie's suspicion precisely. "You have found it!" I exclaimed. "I had to," replied Donald. . "This man was coming to make this charge against my father. It was absolutely necessary that I should find that mon ey. Put it away, please. Quick! Some t one is coming." Donaldson and Jim Bunn entered, the former waving his hand. in which there was a letter. "The proxy from Silas Harrington!" he cried. "The branch is safe. We can win now by fifty shares even if Thorn dyke votes against us." "If Mr. Thorndyke votes against you," said Donald gloomily, "you will f lose by fifty shares." We all stored at him. "There's no possible way to figure that out," said Donaldson. "I don't figure it out," said Donald; "I know it. Yet what I know is not what will happen. It is what would happen if I didn't know it. Is that clear?" 1 "As clear as mud," said his father, I laughing. 1 1 CHAPTER XV. THE PREDICTION OF DEATH. "S ET'S see once more how the thing stands," said I. "Practi Lcally every share of the whole . 10,000 can be placed now." I sat down by my desk and made out a table. which I will present here some .what abridged. It is not necessary tb 1 ficlude the names of the small stock holders whose position was perfectly well known to us, nor of those whose proxies were held either by Kelvin or myself. The event proved that we were right about this matter to the last share. Therefore the list may be given in this form: HARRINGTON. John Harrington ............... 450 Donaldson.................---------- O Archer......................---.-------- 100 Bunn................... .......---. 100 Silas Harrington (proxy)..........- 200 Proxies and small holders........... 375 5,025 KELVIN. Kelvin ................-- ...------- 3,0 Thorndyke.....................--- 225 Proxies and small holders.......... 850 4.975 Harrington's majority, 50. There was considerable discussion in regard to the smaller holders who would personally vote and in regard to the proxies, for, though Donaldson and I were perfectly agreed, Jim Bunn differed from us very widely. He be lieved that of the 850 shares which I had credited to Kelvin in the above table at least one-half would go to us, thus making the result of the election sure. I don't know how he could so far deceive himself, but he was per fectly sincere in his opinion and per sisted in crediting us with the votes of men who were as sure to vote the Kel vin ticket as Kelvi was himself. Among them were two members of the1 present directory of the company. It was they who had objected to moving the office, as I mentioned sonmewhere in the early part of this narrative. It will be remembered that Donald1 had made a startling prediction in re gard to Bunn and that it had been ver ied by Bunn's redemption of his stock which had stood in my name. But I had received Bu'nn's solemn pledge that this stock should not pass out of iis contrel, either by sale or proxy, and that it should never be voted against me. He was a stockholder of record at the date prescribed, before the elec tion, and I counted upon him with the same certainty that I counted upon Donaldson or Archer. When my table had been made up and sufficiently discussed, I showed it to Donald. "This may be all right, Uncle John," said he, "but I will bet a million dol lars against a teaspoonful of east wind that it won't come out that way. How ever, if you win you don't care what the vote is." "I'd like to know what you think It's going to be," said I. "I'm ashamed," said Donald. "It's silly for me to pretend to know any thing about it." Bunn was hitching about in his chair. "I think it would be very interest ing," said he. "I'd like to know wheth er you think the same way that I do about it." "Your opinion is far the worst of the lot, Mr. Bunn," responded Donald jok ingly. "You're not right, even about "If lou havc anmythinzg to say upon this mautter', speak now." the grand total, without regard to the Iway the votes rall upon one side or the Iother." "No, no. Donald," said 1. "Mr. Bunn Ifigures as we do, that every share will be voted." The ioy looked surprised. "I thought he estimated them a hun ired short," said he. Bunn slowly raised himself from hi, hair. "I must get back to my work," saie ie. Donald meanwhile was writing on z ;lip of paper. "This Is my prediction," he an lounced, "and If you won't look at i1 ill afterward I'll give It to you, uncle.' "All right, my boy," I replied. Anc vhen lie had sealed up the predictior n a very small envelope I put It intc ny waistcoat pocket. In the course of the next day or twc had several opportunities for exerting ny powers of persuasion upon Mr saac Thorndyke. He was evasive, bul lis intent was clear. The man coul e counted absolutely with the Kelvir arty. What inducements Kelvin of ered him I have never learned, but I ave suspected that they consisted ir )ronilses to Invest money in a crazy in 7ention which Thorndyke controlled Lnd in which he had just sense enougi iot to sink all his own money. No change occurred in the situatior :p to the day before the election. Or he afternoon of that day Donald and I ere walking along the business streel >f Tunbridge, where most of the storeE re and the principal hotel, a sorry )lace of entertainment, I regret to say. is we approached it I saw Detective 3illespie come out. He paused upor he edge of the upper step. and I no iced that he was a trifle unsteady, as f under the influence of drink. I had had no interview with this mar ;ince the day when he had made his !traordinary and baseless charge Lgainst Donaldson. I knew that he iad remained in town, and I had tak n some pains to make sure that he cas not repeating his accusation. Had e done so I should have made trouble or him. But so far as I could judge is main business was to drive about he town in a light top buggy and look nysterious. The vehicle in question was standing )efore the door of the hotel, and the iorse was fastened to an iron hitching >ost. As we approached the spot from >ne side Kelvin and Thorndyke came ip from the other, so that it seemed ikely that there would be a rather in eresting encounter before the door of he hotel. Gillespie remained poised upon the tep, and as we came near Donald )owed to him. "Aha, the wonder-boy!" said Gilles >e. "What sort of weather are we ;oing to have next Christmas?" "The weather is fine today," replied )onald, pausing. "Be content with hat." Gillespie turned to me. "I've got some Interesting facts for rou, Mr. Harrington," said he. "They von't please your young friend there -ery much." "I would suggest that this is hardly be place to disclose them," said I. "No," he answered, "and I'm not quite eady yet." "That was the trouble with you the ther day," said I Injudiciously. "Yox ired off the gun before It was loaded.' It is a fault of mine that I am al ays impatient with a drunken man, othing else makes me so angry as ~oolishness, and at the bead of all fol es stands inebriation. On this occa ion Gillespie was seized with the sud len and absurd anger which ofter narks a certain stage of intoxication. "If you want me to talk right here,' aid he, "I'll show the whole business up. I'm dead on to this boy. I car :eli you the whole game from A to Z.' A crowd was collecting. Kelvin and [horndyke had stopped and were in erested spectators. I caught a glimpse >f Donald out of the corner of my eye nd saw that he was pale with some drong emotion, which I judged to be vrath, though It was really mere mis sy, as I afterward learned. "Why don't you go on?" said he te illespe. "Tell what you know here mnd now." "Tomorrow will do," said the detec. ie, beginning to descend the steps, 'Tomorrow I'll come to see you al rour office, Mr. Harrington." "I shan't be there," said I. "Then I'll find you over to the June ion,'' e rejoined. "Oh, I shan't have tny .:ouble in keeping track of yot omorrOw." Donald stepped forward Into the nan's path. I saw that some unusual mpulse was upon the boy, and it af 'ected me with a peculiar thrill.1 ad often seen him show the same uspect, but never with such intensity. "Frank Gillespie," said he, "if yox ive anything to say upon this mat :er speak now. Tomorrow will be toc ate. If you wait till then, I warn yot hat you will not speak at all. Now is tour time, and there Is no other." He extended his right hand and ouched Gillespie upon the breast over :he heart. He has declared since thex :hat the gesture was entirely acciden n, that he was wholly unaware of- it and I think that is one of the strongesi >oints n the case. As to the immediate effect of his rvords and mamner, I never saw the ike. There was such a silence thai t seemed as if the whole town of Tun )ridge had stopped to take its breath. n certain moments Donald undoubt adly exercises an influence upon thosE hbout him which has no rational ex >lanation. Gillespie put up his hand and coy red the spot which Donald had :ouched. "Hocus pocus!" he cried somewhai oarsely. "I'll attend to your case to norrow." ~e brushed past Donald and unhitch ad the horse with so mnuch nervous bus ble that thhe animal was Irritated and started just as Gillespie had a foot up an the step of the buggy. The max Jerked the reins with his right hand slippcd upon the step and turned abou1 xo that he was thrown against th( bitching post, the iron ball upon the top of It striking him with considerabli l'orce upon the breast. The horse stop ped, and Gillespie tottered back agains a wheel of the buggy. His face wat erey white and somewhat contorted. Such was my state of nervous anc uperstitious apprehension that I ex pected to see the man fall dead, thougi In ordinary circumstances I should no bve feared a serious result from th< accident. Evidently I was not alone ix my alarm, for a strangely suppresse and Inarticulate cry went up from the group upon the sidewalk, and severa men stepped forward to assist Gilles pie. He recovered himself, however without help, climbed into his carriage this time with sufficient care, and drovy "Donald," said I in his ear. "wha did you mean?" "Mean?" he repeated as if dazed "Nothing at all except that I wante' him to speak. I wish to heaven h< could have exposed me right there i: the public street." "Well, my boy," said I, "if anythin, hapen to Mr. Gillespie nate wha posea by the recording angel, and will have no effect in Tunbridge." CHAPTER XVI. THE FATE OF A TRAITOn. PW HE next morning Donaldsc and I went over to the Jun, A5 tion on the early train. Thei were three or four stockhol' ers over there to whom we wished i say a final word, though, in our opih ion, the election was as good as over. experienced a great relief and, sometimes happens, was the bett< able to realize how great would haN been my bitterness of spirit if Kelvi had won the fight. I I had various errands here and thex in the Junction and was separate from Donaldson for some hours. W met about noon in front of the bus ness block in which the office of tb branch is located. My first glimps of Donaldson showed me that somi thing was wrong. "I've just had a telephone messag from Archer," he said. "He tells m that he can't find Bunn." "Can't find him?" I echoed. "Hasn he been at the office?" "No. And that isn't the worst c it," he replied. "Archer has sent u to Mrs. Stewart's," Bunn's boardin place, "and it seems that he wasn there last night." "Good heavens!" I exclaimed. "Ca he have gone out on one of those Ion evening walks of his and fallen dea in an out of the way place? I don mean to be heartless, Donaldson, bt you know what this means to us." "It means destruction," said hi "That's the name of it." "Do you remember," said I, "the when Don was talking to Jim Bun the other day he seemed to get an in pression that this vote would be hundred shares short? Can that hav been a vague hint that something wa going to happen to Bunn?" "I tried to get the boy by telephone, answered Donaldson. "Dorothy doesn know where he is. Nobody knows." "I wish we had him here," said I. Upon a chance I went to a publi telephone and called up the office, bu I got no word of any one, Archer, Bun nor Donald. I had a curious exper ence with crossed wires, however, i the course of which I heard Kelvin' voice for a few minutes and made ou that he was trying to get communice tion with Gillespie. It came to m then to wonder whether that rasca had spirited Bunn away. It was ; trick that I did not believe Kelvi would stick at. Donaldson and I were entirely hell less. We had to rely upon Archer, fc we could not get to Tunbridge an back before the time set for the mee ing, and so, as there was nothing be ter to do, we had a morsel of dinner. Shortly before 2 o'clock Archer ai rived in a pitiable state of excitement oWhat shall we do?" he cried as soo as he was within speaking distanc "Without Bunn we're lost, and I ca get no trace of the man. I've got a Tunbridge hunting for him. We mu. hold up the meeting as long as W can." There were about a dozen of t1 stockholders in the room when iv three entered. Thorndyke was ther' and I immediately perceived that b was very restless. I could not get hiu into conversation. I~e sat in a corn( of a window seat in the attitude of man with the stomach ache and drn med upon the floor with one fo't, habit that especially distresses me. Presently the meeting was called I order by a little dummy who acts e president of the company because mor important men do not want the offici Some reports were read, and then, in der the rules, it became necessary I proceed to the election of a boardC directors. I had a little scheme f< holding back the vote, but it wfis in necessary to spring it immediatel: Meanwhile the proxies were passe upon in the usual way, and tellers wer appointed, one from each party. The were Donaldson and a man named A in Green, a small stockholder who ha gone entirely over to the Kelvin part: although he owed has stock and ever: thing else which he had in the worn to me. There were two tickets-that is, tiv lists of men named for directors. Tt 'ists were printed* and were entitle Ticket No. 1 and Ticket 1go. 2. Oum was No. 1. I was about to begin my tactics ft delay when there was a loud knockfr at the door, which was locked. We a jumped up from our places around tI long table except Thorndyke, who ha maintained his seat in the windo throughout the proceedings and did n< stir at the noise. The door was opened, and Jim Bun stalked into the room, with the air( a crazy man. I cast one look at hil and then turned ,toward Kelvin. M~ enemy had seized upon Archer, wi happened to be nearest to him, and ha dragged him Into a corner. I judge that Kelvin .was protesting upon or ground or another against the admi sion of Bunn's vote, but I could n< hear what was said. So I turned i Bunn. "Well, Jim?' said-I. "where have yc been?" "Wait," said he, speaking like a ma in a trance. "Wait. I'm here to vote.' "That's what we're all here for," responded, "and the sooner the better Quiet was restored, and the votir began, the ballots being dropped into hat. When all had been collected, tl tellers took them to a little table in ti corner and proceeded to make tl count. I glanced across at Donaldsc -and saw instantly that he had encou. tered a most unpleasant surprise. great uneasiness I turned to Carl. E was gnawing his fingers. Bunn se rigid In a chair, his head thrust fo ward, his eyes staring. I hegan to feel a dire isolation. The! men seemed to know something< which I was ignorant. The perspir: ion started from my face. I woul have given much for a gift of prophet to anticipate the events of the ne: few minutes, and this wish natural: suggested Donald. I took from n pocket the envelope which contain( his prediction and turned it nervous: in my fingers. Curiosity overcame m I broke the seal and read, with grel surprise, this line: "The Harrington ticket will win t 300 majority." While I was vainly trying to mal this result fit the mathematical poss bilities, I heard the tellers rise fro! their table. Donaldson handed a sI: Iof paper to the secretary of the con -pany, who read as follows: "All ballots are straight. No. 1 tick< has received the preferences of tl ''holders of 5,150 shares. No. 2 lick' has received the preferences of tI holders of 4,850 shares. No. 1 ticket: therefore elected." "Here!" cried Kelvin. "There's son mistake about Aiis. We'll verify thos ballots." I expected a reply from Donaldso1 but he had crossed to the end of ti table where Carl was sitting. I fo J lowe -a touche him on the shou t "How the dickens did we get such a result as that?" I asked. "Thorn dyke, must -have voted for us and Bunn against us." "Thorndyke voted for us," said Don aldson, "and Bunn voted for us. This man voted against us." "Carl!" I exclaimed. "Impossible!" e "My son tried to warn me of this long ago," said Donaldson, "and I 0 would not hear him." "It is a matter of business," said Carl harshly. "I am a stockholder of - this company. I vote as my interest r dictates." e "Thorndyk," cried Donaldson, seiz n ing the man's arm as he was passing, "did my son know how you were going e to vote?" "Well, to be frank with you," replied e Thorndyke, "your son is responsible for it. I had thought that I saw my e interest clear to vote with the other e party, but at a late hour last even ing your son came to my house with Mr. Bunn, and I then learned what an e Infernally crooked game this man Kel e vin has been playing. Between us, gentlemen, and to use the slang of the day, I couldn't stand for It." "Why didn't you lift the weight from our minds by telling us this?" P I demanded. r "Youn- Mr. Donaldson desired that I should say nothing," was the reply, "and I seemed to see his point." 9 For the first time in; s :fe Thorn dyke had kei,t a secret. t . "Don't you understand-!" said Don t aldson. "Archer, Archer! He's the man whom my son was fighting against. If Bunn had stayed away, Archer would have votGd with us, and t we'd have lost the election just the same, supposing that Thorndyke had not changed his mind. But with Bunn~ here to vote for us and Thorndyke e supposedly safe for the Kelvin party, Archer's vote would turn the scale, and it could be turned in no other way. Kelvin would force him to cast it. t Donald has foreseen this a long time. It was the only way to unmask this man completely." e "Unmask, eh?" cried Carl. "Well, I'll t do a little unmasking. Kelvin, where's a that man Gillespie?" "Come away!" growled Kelvin. "You're making a fool of yourself. It's e all over." t "No; not quite," said Car!. "Jim Bunn, answer me this: Who stole that a money? Who got the $40,000? You 1 know. Is this the man?" i He struck Donaldson roughly on the 2 shoulder. "No,"-answered Bunn almost in a - whisper. "You'll get no lies from me. I r am the man." 3 Carl's hands dropped to his sides. "Are you-are you such a d--d fool as that? Go to state's prison, then, If you want to and die in a cage like a .. rat." Bunn shrank away as If he had re a ceived a blow in the face, while Archer i turned on his heel and walked out of a the room, followed by Kelvin. [I "He has played the game too hard," t said Donaldson. "The strain has smash-, e ed his wits." "Upon my word." said I, "I don't e quite see what his game was.". e "Power!" answered Bunn. "Kelvin's , control of this road would have forced your business Into the trust. You n would have made the best terms. you r could and would have retired from ac a tive management. Kelvin promised i Archer that he should have the whip a hand of everything here, and you can see what that would have meant for o Donaldson. .As for me, they had me in s a trap." - -r BIE CONTrNUED.] ~Tax Returns, e Office County Auditor Clarendon Co.,?)
