But suddenly away along the
down lino she saw a round red
light creeping apparently neater
and nearor Iler heart leapt at the
sight To tho uttermost bitterest
end tlio way was clear Tho final
word had gone forth tho final
revolution was made to her
Slio placed her hands under the
mans shoulders and by an offort
of strength desporale and far boy
ond what might have been expect
ed from her frame dragged him
over tho few feet of roadway
which lay between him and tho
metals Hto groane d onco or twice
but remained sonsoless and mo
tionless as sho placed him right in
the track of the coming train
The red light was close close
at hand hut tlio man lay still and
rocked nothing of it Tho woman
having accomplished her ghastly
work wound her black shawl
tightly around her head then fell
upon her knees waited and livod
an ago in overy moment
Sho heard through the mufiling
tho rush sho felt on her hands the
wind of the metal monster as it
swept by but she heard or felt no
more Sho rose and shuddered
convulsively tlionwithont a glance
to soo what her hand wrought
stepped over the lino down the
steep embankment and was lost in
tho night She had done whatsho
believed to bo hor appointed task
No longer would Maurice Ilervey
stand between Beatrice and happi
ness The poor wretch was almost cnt
in two Tho wheels which had
crushed the lifo out of him wero
thoso of an engine on its way to
pick up tracks on a siding somo
way down tlio lino Tlio drivor
felt tho slight obstruction and hav
ing marked tho spot where it oc
curred upon his return stopped
tho train and knew what had
caused that momentary jolt know
that a manjS life had in that sec
ond passed away
Tho body was picked up placed
in a truck and taken to tho Mun
ich statioti and thence to tho placo
appointed for tho reception of the
bodies of unknown men who met
with a sudden or a violent death
If by any chance Beatrice who
certainly had froublo enough to
make hor wakeful had risen with
the dawn of tho morning which
followed tho tragedy and looked
out of her casement she would
havo seen a sight which would
have caused her much surprise
Sho would have soen Sarah Miller
whom she believed to bo in Eng
land standing on tho oposite side
of tho street utter despair and an
guish written in overy lineament
gazing at her mistresss window
like ono bidding tho object tho
dearest on earth an eternal fare
well eternal becauso even tho
consoling hopo of a meeting in
some futuro stato is absent But
Beatrice who in the earlier part
of tho night had boon awako for
hours with her sorrow slept on
until the sun was high Perhaps
it was well for her she did so
Tho poor selfappointed instru
ment lor working tho Divino Will
had after sho left tho scene of her
dark work wandorod about tho
outskirts of Munich aimlessty and
hopelessly Had it been broad
daylight and had there been per
sons to see her an occasional sti
fled moan and wringing of tho
hands woulIhavo boon all that
showed the ngony of mind sho en
dured But it was not as might
be supposed tho agony of remorse
It was tho agony at tho thought
of tho further sacrifico which such
sense as still was hers told hor sho
must make in order that the de
sired and predestined results might
follow the act of tho night
Sho was mad and she was not
mad On what may bo called tho
religious side of tho question her
mind as may bo guessed from her
deeds was gone past redemption
It may bo that this had been her
true stato for years ovory since
she had accepted as true tho inex
orable logic of creed which she
had partly boon taught partly
framed for herself The firo may
have been burning for years giv
ing now and again trainsicnt
flashes and only waiting for cer
tain circumstances to fan it to a
consuming flame The fierce burst
was now over but tho fire would
burn and not again bo hidden until
it had devoured life as well as
Sho had killed murdered this
man in all but c ld blood Apart
from tho horror attondant on tho
actual oxecution of tho crimo a
horror which began to haunt her
and bo ovor with hor ho felt no
poignant misery no maddening
regret In her wild disjointed way
sho lamented not tho mans death
but tho fnct sho had been chosen
to bring it about Sho lamented
it oven as Judas might havo la
mented tho hard fato which inor
der that prophecy should bo ful
filled singled him out and decroed
that ho should betray his Master
And if it
iintm that pr vid ncc
saves and slays who shall say that
tho womans mad reasoning was
unsound Are not faith and logic
mortal foes who shall only be re
conciled when tho lion lies down
with tho lamb
Ou the other side matorial side
Sarah Miller was as yet sano or
nearly so Sho could look forward
plan and even carry out And
the anguish which racked hor mind
was the homocoming of the truth
that her act must parther and her
mistress forever Hero was the
crowning sacrifico Here was per
haps tho earthly punishment
Novoragain to gazo into that dear
face novor again to hear that loved
voieo novor again to bo near hor
to minister to her wants to aid
her scheme for hor and if needs
bo sin for hor ITover to seo hor
in happiness which had boon so
dearly bought Hero was tho sac
rifico It must bo made and she
must find strength to make it and
skill to insure its being of use
To see her mistress to meet
hor oven onco more would bo to
ruin all Sho must never know
whoso hand it was bore her free
dom She would never suspect
that her servant had been tho
means of cutting tho knot which
it seemed no earthly power could
undo Ah no earthly power could
have undone it
So when at last the morning
broke gray and the trees and
other objects loomed phantom
like and unreal through tho mist
Sarah Miller planned and schemed
seoking the way to insure what she
had so dearly bought All hor
thoughts reached one end Sho
must fly far far from the spot
Beatrico must never hear of her
again novor know that she loft
London If hor proximity to tho
dead man became known tho truth
might be guessed and all bo at
onco lost
Yot before sho went she must
seo tho houso in which hor darling
lived She must stoop and kiss
tho doorstep on which those loved
feet had trodden Sho must waft
her one passionato and unheoded
farewell then leave tho place and
bo as ono dead
She struggled against tho desiro
but it overcamo her With tho
first streaks of daylight sho enter
ed tho sleeping city and utterly
worn out stood beforo her mis
tresss window and for a while
watched it as ono might watch the
last fading ray of a sun which has
sunk never again to rise and light
en tho darkness which shall be
At an early hour of the morning
tho street was silent and deserted
Thero was no ono to notico tbo
strangelooking creaturo who stood
and with wild despair in her eyes
forover gazed on ono spot Her
look for the time was such that no
ono not even tho one most pre
occupied with his own concerns
could havo passed hor without feel
ing their curiosity raisod as to why
sho was lingering thero and what
gavo hor that appearance of diro
After somo minutes spent in this
manner tho woman crossed tho
road Hor limbs dragged aftor
hor and made ber Exhausted stato
apjiarent Sho leant hor head
against tho door of the houso which
held her mistress ahd sobbed con
vulsively A dizzy feeling came
ovor her and sho felt that sho was
upon the point of fainting and
falling senseless on tho doorstep
By a supremo effort sho roused
herself and shook oft tho incipient
stupor If onco she sank down
her weary limbs might refuse
to do hor bidding Sho might lie
there until her presence was dis
coved and that discovery ruined
all No if sho were to sink and
perhaps die lot it ho as far away
from Beatrico as hor waning
strength could carry her Swoot
as it would bo to breathe her last
within reach of her mistress oven
such poor comfort could not bo
vouchsafed to her
It speaks volumes for thciron
strength of hor will insomuch that
it struggled with and overcame
not only tho womans physical
fatigue but also the craving for
ono glimpse of Beatrice which
chained her to the spot Sho tore
horself away and without once
looking back and forced her tired
limbs to bear hor to a considerable
distance Hero sho found a quiet
doorstep on which sho sat unmo
lested sat and fought against her
exhauston until such time as sho
would bo ablo to procure food
It was not long bofore slowly
little by little unit by unit the
city began to awako Horo and
thoro tho shutters went down from
a shop and at last the weary wo
man saw all but facing hor a
bakers window Sho onterod tho
shop bought some bread and beg
ged a glass of water Not for her
own sako but for tho sako of an
other she was called upon to eat
and drink
Sho ato her bread and then
soniowhat strengthened again ho
gan her pilgrimage Sho crjpt
through the streets until she reach
ed tho railway station Hero sho
ascertained at what timo tho next
train for the west would start
She had a long timo to wait
Sho hid herself in ono corner of
the waitingroom and sat liko a
statue But her brain was burn
ing and her pulse throbbing A
strange sound a fierce rushing
Xxaeioi = > 63adout ± xx XX Tli ± riss i > ToTXtI l in KTotlilaas
wheels seemed turning and turn
ing in her head and if for a mo
ment sho dared to close her hot
and weary oyes sho saw through
tho darkness a light a liorcc light
rod liko blood and drawing nearor
and nearor
But in spito of all this sho was
ablo to tako hor seat in tho train
able to exult that she had found
tho strength to bear her so far able
to pray that her strength might
last until sho onco more stood in
London Then all would bo sate
No matter what became of her
then Tho work was finished what
did tho futuro of tho tool matter
Tho train loft JImiich and as it
steamed out of tlio lino station 1
tho woman veiled her face with
her black shawl In spite of her
conviction that sho had but exo
cuted a proordained task she dared
not look upon the spot where sho
had knelt on tho provious night
Miles and miles passed beforo she
removed tho sombre covering from
her while worn face As tho train
hurried on tho wheels within hot
brain whirled faster and faster tho
rushing sound grow stronger and
tho ficrco red light shono redder
fiercer and nearer
Save for such inquiries as tho
oxigency of the journoy forced her
to make and such speech as was
necessary to procure tho food and
drink which naturo absolutely de
manded tho woman spoko no word
during that long journey back
Except that now ami again she
pressed them to hor brow in a
vain endeavor to stop tho wheels
which whirled in her brain her
thin hands wero forever clasped
beneath her dark shawl She sat
and stared into vacancy How
could sho close her eyes when do
ing so at onco brought the red
light before them
Por all sho knew that journoy
might have lasted months or years
Periods of time meant nothing to
her now Eternity not Time lay
beforo hor
Tho long journoy by land tho
shorter jonrncy by lea passed liko
a protracted yet incoherent dream
All she know or cared to know
was that she was speeding on to
London At last the sound of
English voices tho sight of Eng
lish faces told her she had reached
tho last stage of tho journey
Then sho roused horself and made
her final preparations
She searched her pocket and
tore into small bits every piece of
paper it contained so that no writ
ten word could be left to give clue
to her identity Last of all she
drow from an cvelope a photo
graph of Beatrice She gized at
it long and passionately and then
with a deep sigh tore it across and
across and throw tho pieces to tho
winds She dared not even keep
this poor relic of her darling
London at last Sarah Millor
stopped from the train and onco
moro stood on tho platform which
she had quitted Tather more than
threo days before It was now
past threo oclock in tho morning
Whither should sho turn Sho
stood hesitating and bewildered
Thero was ono thing more which
sho had sottlcd to do What was
it Oh thoso wheels those wheels
will they never stop Sho pressed
her fingers to her temples and
strove to recall what resolution
had slipped from her mind
Ah now ho remembered what
it was Her money sho must get
rid of that Sho had no further
need of money now that she had
reached tho final goal In her
pocket wero both German and
English coins Sho collected them
and creeping slealthily to the box
which stands awaiting contribu
tions for somo doubtless very de
serving charity she dropped in
ovory coin that was upon her per
son This done sho believed there
was nothing left which could in
any way show who she w s or
whence sho came
She passed out under tho arch
way solitary darkrobed figure
with a head bent aa in grief She
passed from tho ghastly white
glare of electric lamps into tho all
but deserted Strand Sho walked
somo way up tho Strand then
without any definite aim turned to
tho right and by anil by found her
solf on tho embankment
Still she wandered on until sho
reached Waterloo Bridge She
went halfway across it then stop
ped short and gazed over the para
pet into the river But no thought
of selfdestruction had entered into
her head although the led light
was still before her eyes the wild
rush still sounding in her ears and
thoso fearful iron wheels in hot
brain circling more rapidly than
ever Io tho rivor had but for
hor tho attraction which a smooth
calm peaceful stream has for all
who are in deep distress So sho
looked and looked oven craned
ovor tho parapet to peor into its
sombre placed depths
At that moment a blinding light
flashed upon her eyes and a hahd
grasped her shoulder Now none
of that nonsense said a sharp
voice the voice of a policeman
who had seen her dark form against
tho stonework of tho bridge The
woman turned her face to his and
tho anguish writton upon it per
suaded tho constable that ho had
arrived just in tho nick of time

Savings Banks In the South
A most hopeful sign of the times
is tho growth of tho Savings bank
system in the South Until 188G
Maryland was tho only Southern
State which had a bank that was
oxclusivoly a savings institution
In 1887 North Carolina Georgia
and Louisiana theso four Statoa re
porting over 23000 depositors and
nearly SG000000 in deposits Each
year adds ncjw States to tho list
and it will lojok back with amaze
ment upon tho timo when tho in
stitution was unknown throughout
that portion qf the country Both
as a sign of the development of
thrift and as a promoter of the
habit the rise of the savings bank
systom in the South is heartily to
be welcomed New York Even
