I. WOMAN'S REASON j
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 |
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
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."
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
"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
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.
