•THE DIAMOND FROM THE SET"
(Continued from page 3.)
as the c o lo w si bem lo „iss it. The
aid nurse softly bustled to the door and
iitaKttitt the doctor
11 In the copse of woods, hardly far
ther than a stone's throw from the
mansion, night was falling darkly with
the muttering* of an approaching
storm. Over a smoldering lire crouch
ed Matt Harding, the gypsy, puffing at
his short black pipe. A cry of pain
from the weather stained tent near by
roused the man, and he arose and sul
lenly walked over and entered the
shabby shelter.
In a few moments be emerged and
hurried rapidly in the direction of
Stanley Hall.
As he rapped at the great door of
the mansion Ned, the colored butler,
opened it, throwing a glare of yellow
light upon the sinister face of the
gypsy.
"You can't see nobody in this house,
Mr. Man," said Ned.
"But I tell you Colonel Stanley prom
ised me bis doctor would be here to
night and that he would attend my
wife. She needs the doctor now. It's
a matter of life and death. And It's
bad luck when a gypsy dies without
being able to face the rising sun."
"De colonel's alius doin' foolish kind
nesses to' poo' white trash," grumbled
the darky as be shut the door on the
strange caller and went reluctantly to
bear his message.
But the good old physician was posi
tive that no barm would come from his
absence for an hour or so and hastened
away on his errand of mercy.
At the little station of Fairfax mean
while the now frightened London law
yer was wondering whether he should
load the elephant rifle with which he
had provided himself and fortify him
self behind his luggage. As the beat
•f horse hoofs drew nearer the English
lawyer rose with leveled rifle and cried:
"Halt! Who goes there, friend or
foe?"
The approaching honeman, Judge
Lamar Stanley, laugbed grimly aa he
called out: "It's a friend! Don't shoot 1"
And then he rode up to the platform
and Introduced himself to the English
man and explained matters to the lat
ter's satisfaction. Then the Judge
fastened the luggage of his visitor to
the two saddle horses, and they rode
off together.
In the copse of wood the pattering
night rain fell upon the gypsy tent.
The storm passed as quickly as It
had come, and the moon shone out
refulgently. The flap of the tent open
ed, and the bulky form of tbe good
doctor was seen In tbe moonlight. He
held a small swaddled object ln bis
arms.
"Matt Harding," said Dr. Lee im
pressively, "the storm has passed with
tbe miracle of birth, and you may say,
as was said of old, 'Unto us a child Is
born; unto us n son Is given.' "
"Them's fine words for rich folk,"
grumbled the gypsy gruffly. "To me
it don't mean nothing but another
mouth to feed."
The doctor regarded the man with
auch a look of sternness that the gypsy
took the child from the doctor and en
tered the tent with It after promising
the physician to take good care of It
and Its mother.
The good doctor hurried back to
Stanley hall, where all were impatient
ly awaiting him. He smiled reassur
ingly at the colonel's wife, tbe colonel
and the nurse.
"A fine boy has been born to the
gypsy woman," he said. "It aeems an
omen of like good luck to Stanley hall.
Wp may expect a little earl to be born
here this night," be added gently.
The colonel's flower faced wife shook
her head and smiled back at the old
doctor, and the colonel spoke quickly.
"I have no ambitions for any title for
a son of mine," he said,
a boy if but to thwart my cousin, La
mar Stanley."
A bitter expression crept Into tbs
face of the negro woman at the men
tion of Judge Stanley's name.
"Don't you worry, honey," she said
softly to her mistress, "an' don't you
Worry either, colonel. De good Lord
don't intend no luck for Jndge Lamar
Stanley. I was a slave girl on bis fa
ther's place when de Jedge
young man. He killed my brother like
a dog, an' he had me beat Insensible
when I called him 'Cain.' ''
A girl child was born at Stanley
hall at midnight. The colonel blanch
ed at tbe news, but the flower faced
mother smiled and called her husband
to bring the diamond from the sky.
With trembling hands he brought the
precious heirloom, and the mother with
her own weak bands placed the chain
and tbe locket that contained the
Jewel around the neck of her newborn
daughter.
"She Is heir to Stanley ball, at least,"
murmured the mother, "and until you
die," she added, turning to tbe colonel,
"she may wear-It as a 'charm against
harm,' as the Stanleys of our branch
have always done."
Then as jail turned away to bide their
tears at the pathos of ber words tbe
yonng mother, with trembling bands,
drew a slip of folded paper from be
neath her pillow and, opening tbe se
cret catch at the beck of tbe locket,
placed a mother's last message unno
ticed beneatb tbe diamond from the
sky, murmuring as sbe did so:
'"A charm against barm,' my little
daughter; 'charm against barm!* " And
then sbe sank back upon ber pillow,
her babe upon ber breast.
Tbe old nurap turned and gased fixed
ly at ber mistress; then, with a scream
of grief and terror, sbe threw herself
beside the babe and mother.
"She Is dead!" shrieked the nurse.
"My sweet mistress Is dead!" It was
but too true; this gentle soul had
passed. ,
But I wish

In the library an hour later Dr. Lee
stood over the shattered colonel. "Lis
ten to tbe truth," said the doctor. "It
to Idle for you to rave. I here toM
you, you have aneurism of the heart,
and another attack like this may be
your death. You cannot hope to live
to marry a wife who may yet bear you
a son."
"I will never marry again !" cried
Colonel 8tanley in anguish. "I have
loved but one woman, could love but
one womnu, and she Is dead! But, by
heavens, 1 will cheat Lamar Stanley
and all his brood! I have |5,000 In
yonder safe. I will buy the male child
born to the gypsy woman. 1 will hide
away my own flesh and blood, my 111>
tie daughter, and have her reared ten
derly, yet in secret. And the gypsy's
brat at my death shall be the Earl-of
Stanley In England and possess the
diamond from the sky. That will be
fine for Lamar Stanley and his vermin
offspring!" And he laughed and shook
his hands in bitter rage.
"I mean it, and you must help me.
You hate Lamar Stanley, for he ruined
you. Mammy Lucy hates him. He
killed her twin brother in cold blood.
Come!"
In the glow of bis campfire Matt
Harding gased greedily at the wealth
beyond bis wildest dreams that Colo
nel Stanley had roused him from bis
fitful slumber to pour into his lap.
Hagar, roused from her fevered
dreams, felt her babe being lifted from
her bosom. The rural gypsy husband
and father seized ber by the throat as
she feebly struggled. He gagged and
bound her hastily as be might and
emerged panting from the teut, carry
ing the swaddled babe which be hand
ed to the colonel and the doctor.
"Does my wife object?" he asked to
the doctor's question. "Say, governors,
she would sell every child she expects
to have for half the money. We'll be
twenty miles away by sunrise and fif
ty miles more by another day. We'll
be gypsy kings and queens and you'll
never bear of us again!"
Back at 8tanley hall the doctor and
the colonel entered secretly by the li
brary window and bore the babe up
stairs to the waiting nurse. Reluctant
ly and yet resolved like all the rest,
the faithful colored nurse arrayed the
gypsy child In fine linen and bung
about its neck "the diamond from the
sky," while the little daughter, born to
Stanley ball, whimpered beside Its fair
dead mother.
In answer to the summons to Stan
ley ball came Judge Stanley, the kins
man enemy and the English barrister.
It was a strange group that gathered
In the colonel's library, the English
barrister, the grim, bitterly disappoint
ed judge, silently facing Dr. Lee and
Colonel Stanley.
A pull at the bell rope and the weep
ing colored nurse entered the library
bearing the black haired, dark eyed
babe, a male child in Stanley ball, pre
sumptive heir to an English earldom,
and blazing on Its breast was the dia
mond from the sky.
Over tbe gypsy campfire within the
sound of a human call from Stanley
hall a bereft and frenzied mother tore
herself loose from her bonds. Like a
tigress, she threw herself upon her
husband and demanded her child.
When be fold ber of the bargain and
