THIBODEAUX & SONS. 1-17-3t. The Shaughraun. Ffoll:ott, findnrg h:s last hour has come, summons a.u old friend, Father Dolaa, the parish priest, and his land ate c, Corry Kinchela. Into their hands _:e commer:dc his two children, Itobert and Claire. In later years Kinchela determines to secure pos session of the lands and finds he must eliminate Robert Ffolliott, now of age. With the aid of Harvey Duff, an unscrupulous police agent. Robert is proven to be a Fenian and an enemy to the crown. While Robert is hi prison Kinchela induces him to transfer the estate, declaring the lands will revert to the crown in the event of conviction. Robert's sister, Claire. and his sweetheart. Arte, come to cheer him. Robert is sentenced to penal settlement in Australia. Several years later Robert escapes and sails for Ireland. When Duff in forms Kinchela of Robert's return he plans to capture him, but Robert stur renders voluntarily. Kinchela, know ing that thg Queen has announced that all Fenian prisoners will be pardoned, pretends friendship to Robert and in duces him to attemp an escape, hay ing previously arranged with the sol diers, in order that Robert may be shot when he makes the attempt to get away. But Kinchela overlooks the crafty Conn: who communicates with Robert and assists him removing a portion of the prison wall, through which he escapes. In the meantime, Robert's sister, Claire, decoys Captain Molineaux from his duty in order that Conn's plans may not be thwarted. A schooner rests at anchor and a boat is to be sent out for Robert when a signal light appears. The light is to be flashed when two shots are heard but Robert finds that he has lost his pis tol. Conn, however, creeps within sight of the pursuing peasants direc ted by Duff, and when two rifle shots are directed at him he falls supposed ly dead, while Robert makes his es cape. It is commonly believed that Coon has been killed and a wake is held. Arte and Moya, sweethearts of Robert and Conn, the only witnesses of the shooting of the Shaughraun, are kidnapped by Kinchela. Robert learns that the Fenian prisoners are to be pardoned and comes home, only to find that his sweetheart has disap peared. Kinchela places the girls on board of a lugger and are spirited out of the country. Conn, through a sub terfuge, comes to the rescue once more and exposes the villainy of the plotters.
