Mr. Hall then went about hla bual neas and by no means hurried himself to atteod upon the Invalid at Sullivan's. He had auch a horror of drunkards in general that the man's Illness excited no sympathy within. Besides he bad nothing to communicate regarding Robert Luke, the brother, and had long since ceased to take any interest in what had become of him. Leisurely mounting his horse that afternoon, be rode down to the publlc houae. Thera he was received by an extract ant crowd of loafers, foremost amongst whom was the landlord he so much de tested. "Take Mr. Hall's horse. Bill, can't yer!" cried Bulllvan. "Very good of you, sir, I'm sure, to have taken the trouble to come, quite upset me—It's awful!"—and the man really did look as It his nerves were in a more shattered condlUon than usual. "Will you step Inside, air?" be asked respectfully. "I have a let ter you had better see at once." Mr. Hall followed the landlord Into the little back-parlor, which was so far In advance of the rest of the estab lishment as to boast of a calico celling Closing the door, Sullivan pulled out a letter from the depths of one of his pockets. It wag the letter written by Robert Luke to bis brother in England. Mr. Hall read the letter carefully ThU b usine« has through. "I can't make head or tall of It," he remarked at laat. "It Is dated on the day the n:au disappeared, 1 see; but what was the trial, and what was the thousand pounds reward he seemed eo keen about getting?" ''You'll remember, sir, surely! It was (he great Froyles murder In England This man William Luka was taken up 0 n suspicion. He waa the butler to j the old gent who was killed." "Yea, yes; 1 remember now reading all about It," replied Mr. Hall, becom- j Ing more Interested. "Well, this William Luke waa con demned to death, and there seemed no doubt that he committed the murder. Shortly after the execution waa to have taken place, however, the police got upon another acent." "I remember—and he was pardoned." "Tee, sir; and the people who were wanted In bla stead were two of the eervanta who gave evidence against him at the trial, handbill describing them. Mr. Hall took the paper in bis hand. It waa beaded "One Thousand Pounds Reward," and contained the descrip tions of Edward Dodeon. "1 cannot say that this In any way »„lightens m e," he remarked presently. Then, referring to Robert Luke's let ter to hla brother, he said, "Luke seem ed to fancy that be traced a ltkenesa In Tom Baynes to the woman who Is here 'wanted.' ThU is absurd!" "He bad his own reasons, no doubt," Here is a printed Bartlett and Anne replied Sullivan. "Possibly he bad, or thought he had; but—which Is more likely—he was parried away by the hopes of gaining the reward, and so allowed himself to suspect people without just cause." "He may have been right, anyhow," growled the landlord. "I don't think so, and I'll tell you why. I have seen Baynes' wife, and »he In no way answers ths description of the woman here." "Oh. you have seen her?"—"Yes." "And what waa she like?" "In the first place she was not near ly so tall as this Anne Dodson, who seems to have been much above the average height of women. Then her hair was very dark." "That might easily be managed," argued Sullivan. "Of course; but her features In no way answered the description here. In fact, been the same person." "Oh!" grunted Sullivan, in a disap pointed tone. ''Well, perhaps, air, you would like to see the man Luke. He Is In the next room." "You wished to see me," said the squatter, taking a seat by the bedside. "Yes, sir," eatd Luke, "if you are Mr. Charles Hall." "That Is my name!" "I have come out all this way to see brother Robert." "Yes; I know all about It You have heard how suddenly he went away?" "He never went away, st:," replied the sick man. "What, then, do you suppoee haa be come of him?" Raising himself with difficulty upon one arm, William Luke looked wildly about him. "My head—my head!" he exclaimed. "Oh, don't mind me, sir! I'll think di rectly." "My belief—Is—that he has been put away!" "Put away?" "Yes, sir—murdered!" "Nonsense, man; you are Imagining things which we know cannot be true! By whom oould he have been mur dered?" "By them." "Whom?" "Edward Bartlett and Anne Dodson." "My good fellow." said Mr. Hall soothingly, "there have been no «"«h am certain she could not hare ray » mind the man. at ing was here. the He was bad up people In this neighborhood. Your brother's suspicions as to Baynes were quite ridiculous. He and his wife were nothing like the people here describ ed;" and Mr. Hall held up the printed handbill as he spoke. "This Baynes—can I see him? Will you have him brought to me here, so that I may be aatlsfled?" "Why, he was here last night," In terposed Sullivan, "and you were talk ing to him yourself at the door." "He was—and you never told me?" "Told you? How was I to know then what you wanted? If people are so precious cli "You will bring him to me, then?" cried Luke, seizing Mr. Hall's hand as he apoke. "That I cannot do," replied the squatter. "Tom Baynes and his wife left the station at an early hour this morning." "Gone?" shrieked the man In an agony of excitement. "You have let them go! You are all against me. Oh, murdered, murdered!" he yelled, and struggling to leap out of the bed, he fell upon the floor In an epileptic fit. CHAPTER XII. By slow degrees William Luke re covered from his illness so far that he could get out and walk about a little with the aid of a stick. Nothing would , now Induce him to touch spirits; and I Sullivan grumbled mightily at having I a lodger who, he declared, not only j occupied his "best bedroom," but hard I al a |y epent enough to pay for hla "tucker." Still Sullivan had one consolation, and that was that, as the story of the new arrival was circulated, people were curious to see this William Luke who had been condemned for murder and pardoned. Luke's one desire was to get strong enough to go on to Redmount and j search for some traces of his brother. j be listened to his customer's repetition of the old story for about the fiftieth "Didn't Mr. Hall tell you for "He ain't there," replied Sullivan, as no Is time. certain that the Bayneses couldn't be the ones you are after? Didn't he see Baynes' wife? And didn't the trooper and other people see her and him? And aren't they all certain you are on the wrong track?" "But what made them go off so sud denly," said Luke, still unconvinced, "the very day I came up?" "Bless the man," cried Sullivan, get ting weary of arguing with him— "hasn't Mr. Hall told you over and over again that the chap got a letter, saying his sister waa ill in Sydney? If you will make a mystery of everything connected with them, why, you will— that's all I've got to say." But the more Luke thought, and the more he read and re-read his brother's letter, the more certain he felt that there waa something about the Bayneses which no one as yet sus pected. Did not his brother say that on that very night of the 25th of May he in tended to visit their hut? "I mean to see her tonight, whether or na Bayne* Is away fetching some stores, and won't be home until morn ing. So now's my chance!" The« were the words which William Luks read as he sat beneath the shade of a gum tree on the creek side, and racked hie brains to work the puzzle to you and who the her no In you Is the Mr. see have be upon di put true! mur Hall «"«h out. One day—about a month after bla arrival at Sullivan's, and when he had become tolerably convalescent—Luke made up his mind that he would go to Redmount; so, borrowing a horse, he started off. Upon reaching the station, he was received with every kindness by the hands, who felt a rough sympathy for the man who had come so far to see hla brother and had not found him. Mr. Hall, too, had got over the first feeling of disgust he had entertained for "the gentleman who had been drinking and had had fits," and aaked him In his kindliest manner to come up with him to the house and talk mat ter» over. "I wish to ask you several questions sir," Hid Luke, "about things that have been on my mind." "Ask away," replied the squatter. "First of all, I must tell you some thing of my own history," began Luke nervously. "That la unnecessary, I am sure," said Mr. Hall gently. "It cannot pos sibly bear upon this present question." "No, sir; perhaps not, but still I think I'd rather." "Oo on, then—I am listening." "Well, sir, I entered service early, and was In many a good situation; but latterly I could not keep my places. The curse of my life, as It has been the curse of many another one, was the drink. The pince where I lived before I went to Mr. Hughes—who, you know, was murdered—I left on that account; I cheeked the master, and he said I had stolen his wine. That was true. However I mnde up my mind on go ing to my new situation to turn over a new leaf!" "And you did not succeed?" "No, sir. I went on very well for a short time; hut, If It Is not wicked to speak so of the dead, hs was a most provoking old gentleman. Frequently be would find faul*, without any sort of occasion ; and on that particular dar of the dinner-party be had been more than unusually cantankerous. Thau and my old habits made me take to the liquor again. I felt annoyed and pat out, and was 'nipping' pretty freely throughout the day. After the dinner was over, I took a bottle of eherry front the cellaret, and drank it up in my room." "Yes," said Mr. Hall; "and you were not quite sober in the morning." "1 was three-parts drunk when I awoke, and could not clearly bring to mind anything which had occurred on the previous night-" "Just so!" "Well, you know the rest. I was convicted, condemned, and ultimately pardoned. Edward Bartlett, the foot man. swore in his evidence against me at the trial that I had been often talk ing of how I should liko to raise money enough to take me oat to Australia." "And had you done so?" "Believe me, sir, as there's a Heaven above and as I sit here, it was he who was always speaking of coming ont here. Such a notion never entered my head." "Well, but how does this bear upon the question?" "I will tell yon, sir. My brother Robert was In court when 1 was tried. He bad been for some years in the Metropolitan Police, and, unlike me. was steady in his habita. Bob always bad his head screwed on right; and, putting two and two together, he made up his mind that the missing man and woman had somehow or other made their way out here!" "Yes, yes—I understand," said Mr. Hall. "His letter explains the rest," tinued Luke. "I came out here as quickly as I could—not only In the hopes of tracing them and bringing con* them to Justice, but, I mußt confess, of , glaring the thousand pounds reward." I I j "Exactly—very natural!" "On the way out, on board ship, I was drinking pretty freely; but it was not until my journey up by the coach that It begaD to tell upon me. When I got to Sullivan's, I felt in an unnat urally excited state—sort of wild—I cannot tell you how." "I hope never to know from person al experience." said Mr. Hall, smiling; "but I can easily Imagine. You felt what the men up here call 'Jumpy'?" "Just so, sir. I felt It coming on; and, when I heard of my brother's dis appearance. 1 was taken-" "Well, we won't talk about that—I know all the rest." "Thank you, sir," said Luke, wiping the perspiration from his forehead at the bare recollection of the agonies he bad endured. "One thing I most par ticularly wish to ask you, sir," he con tinued, after a pause—"Is It true that Baynes received a letter from Sydney that night by the mail, telling him hla slater was dying?" "Poor Baynes! Well, Luke, you cer tainly have it firmly Implanted In your mind that that harmless youth was mixed up in some way or other in your tragedy. To answer your question, to the best of m.v belief Baynes did gat a letter to" that effect." "To the best of your belief?" "Yes; for I did not see It." "But you have a locked mall-bag?"— If the in and "Yes." "And you saw the letters taken out?" "Yes. I took them out myself; but his letter was not amongst them. He told me the driver of the coach, 8am Jones, brought it up for him by hand." "The driver brought It up?" repeated Lake. "Yes, the driver—so he told me." "That Is strange. I never heard of that before, v The mail comes in to night. I will go down to Sullivan's, and ask the driver." "Poor fellow!" thought Mr. Hall, af ter his departure. "I should not won der if this business drove him mad. He seems to have the Baynes on the brain!" bla had (To be Continued.) GERMAN MILWAUKEE. 1 Ignora««» of G»rmu Laoanage as Bed aa Ij.or.Br» of KnglUh. The theater, art and science have found a home in the German city of America, says the Chautauquan. One German and three English theaters offer to the public an abundance of varied pleasures, and all eminent in Intellect and art are accustomed to stop In Malwaukee on their American travels. A public library, as well as a picture gallery and a museum, offer gratuitous Instruction to every one. In the fall there is an annual Indus trial and agricultural exhibition which with each year receives a greater abundance of contributions. Doxens of German glee clubs and athletic asso ciations serve for social intercourse. Aa might be expected, the English language Is used In the conduct of busi ness, although at least from 50 to <0, If not a greater, per cent of the peo ple have command of the German lan guage, which Is taught In the public schools. In almœt every business, In nearly all the commercial houses, which are for the most part conducted by Germans, the German language is ur-d along with the English, and so Ignorance of German Is regarded as great a fault as Ignorance of English, H not a greater one. Recently an at tempt was made to remove the Ger man language from the curriculum of ths public schools, but the inquiry In stituted for this purpose produced a result very vexatious to the Investi gators. The overwhelming majority of the non-German parents decided in favor of having tkelr children taught the German language. Thus Milwau kee, in this rase also, has made good her reputation as the German city of America.
