I. WOMAN'S REASON j
[Original.} i\ There was enough of incident con- , centrated in the wedding day of Dr. Sir: Dmitri TJrbanleff and Katharine Tons- | i". koi, two young Russians of the rnid? : die class, for a whole lifetime. Ur- ; banieff had returned from his medical 1 studies in Paris with a light heart, for | Katharine was expecting him. and they ? were to be married soon after his ar | rival. I? He found domesticated in the home ; of Katharine's father Count Alexievech, who had some montlis previous appeared~in the village near by and who had brought a letter of introduction to Tonskol. For what lie came \ and how long he proposed to stay he j gave no information. Dmitri, when he ; found the young man so intimate with j the family of his sweetheart, was trou- i bled, but he soon made the discovery j that Katharine did not like the count, and this reassured him. Why she did not fancy her father's guest was n puz- I gle, for the doctor could see plainly that the count seemed to desire nor favor. When Dmitri asked Katharine ' for a reason for her prejudice she save him no better one than that Alexievech was "cross eyed." Dmitri kiushcd at this feminine reason and thousht no more about the matter. The morning of the wedding day brought a shock to the community. A dozen persons in the vicinity were arrested, and the most harrowing feature was that the young doctor, who ; was to have been married in the evening. was among them. The prisoners Instead of being given a trial were hur- | ried off to Siberia. Count Alexievech appeared to be as surprised and indig- ; nant as any one and volunteered to ? start at once for St. Petersburg, where he claimed to have influence, to procure the doctor's release.' l'hultri was earnest in his gratitude and begged the count to strnlh every nerve to free Lim before it should be too late. Katli- j orine could only eiing to her lover, de- j spa k ing of ever seeing liim again. After her lover's departure she passed a few hours In an agony of despair. / Then suddenly a desperate resolve took possession of her. She distrusted the count's promise. Shortly previous to the wedding day he had left her father's house and taken rooms In the village. Katharine ordered a drosky and drove to his rooms. Instead of sending for him to come down she ran upstairs and knocked at his door. She found him walking the floor. "Why are you not on the way to St. Petersburg?" she asked. "I was too late for the 10 o'clock train. There is no other till tomorrow." "There is a train on the other road at 4 this afternoon. You have only to drive five miles to it to catch it." "Eh? Are you sure? I don't believe there is time." "There is time. Come. I have a drosky below. I will drive you myself." The count began to busy himself with preparation, making a great deal of fuss while doing very little. Katharine saw his revolver lying on a table. "You will need this," she said, taking it up and thrusting it in a pocket of her dress. "Come, we have no time to spare." Alexievech, cramming some brushes into a bag, accompanied her downstairs. They got into the drosky. Katharine seized the reins and drove away as fast as the horse would carry tlicin. As they were passing through a wood Katharine complained that her fingers were numb and asked the count to take the reins, lie had no sooner done so than he felt something hard pressed against his neck and heard the click of a pistol. "Fiend," said Katharine, "I know all. You are one of the chiefs of police and have been ferreting out this plot. You have implicated Dmitri to get him out of the way the better to get me 1n tr? -vnnr r-lntohoc: T Tin to vnn nn;T T am going to kill you." *Katliarine! For Leaven's sake, of what are you accusing mo?" ' Write an order for the release of Dmitri or I fire." "But I have no authority." "Write." The count, who had by this time caught a glance of the glrKs desperate face, took out his notebook, tore out a leaf, wrote the order and gave it to her. "Drop the reins and get out of the drosky," she said. lie obey oil. and Katharine, whipping up the hnrso. was soon out of sight. She knew that the route the prisoners had taken was the one she was on. their conductor intending to take them on the train she had proposed to the count to take. She soon overtook the parry, produced the order, which was respected, her lover got into the drosky and they drove homeward. When approaching the village they saw the count ahead of them. lie was walking with liis head bent down on his breast. When they came up to hint he looked up as though in a dream. Iunitri got out of the drosky and demanded satisfaction for the wrong that had been done him. The count looked at Katharine with a hopeless expression, asked her to give Dmitri the revolver and bared his breast. Dmitri turned away, got into the drosky and. without a word from him or Katharine to the count- drove on. .At tin* hour that had been announced for the wedding the bride ami groom wore ready, and. as tin- nc.rs or Dmitri's release lia<l spread like wildlife, \ tlie guests were assembled. Tbe ceremony passed as quietly as bad been expected. When the bride and ttroom were alone, together Dmitri asked: "Katharine, bow did you know the man was tlie cause of my arrest?" :, "I didn't like tbe squint in his eyes," was her confident reply.
