BY ROBERT BUCHANAN. (continue r.) CHAPTER Xm. WILLIAM JONKS IS 8EHI0UI. The two men walked together through the darkness as far as the door of William Jones' hnt; then they parted. Mr. Monk struck across the sandhills toward his own home, while Jones enteral the door of bis cabin. Ho would fnin have found that cabin empty, for the memory of the last scene in the cave was still npon him and made him as nervous as a child. But the old man was there, and wide awake, ani evidently pleased at his son's return. "Where have you neeu, William, dearr said he. The question was innocent enough in itself, but it was full of hidden meaning for William Jones. "Where have I beeur Be repeated, "at work, to liewav!" Tlie tone of his reply stamen tne oia man. ile looked up and saw to bis amasenient that William was as white a agnost auucruniD- ling violently. "Wbats the matter, vtiuiam aearr- ne asked, eagerly. "Have ye seen a wreck, my sonr No. I ain't!" resiionded his son, violently; "and look ye now, old 'un, you jest lie quiet and let me alon.i, that's all 1" The old man, knowing his son's temiier, did as he was told, and William continued to potter aimlessly about the room. He was oertaiuly tivmbling very much, and as al most, overcome wilh a nervousness for which he himself could not account For he was no coward. To get possession of a prize on tne hich seas he would have faced a storm w men might well make brave men tremble, not to mention that he knew that he iiad on more than one occasion humanely Mstened tbe end of shipwrecked sailors, whom ha had found and n Haired on tne snore. Aiwr meso ai-vs he had lawn able to sleep tne sleep oi virtue without lieing haunUil by dead men's eyes. But now the case was different He had not to deal wish a victim without friends, a man whose ljdy, described as that of a "ship wrecked mariner,11 could be buried and for gotten without more ado. In all proliability there would this time be a hue aud cry, and William Jones trembled lest his share in the ghastly business might ultimately be discov ered. True, he was not actually t he culprit, and K even at. the worst, be 1114, lit ewape the callows; but to a mau of his sensitive and af fectionate nature the thmishtof transporta tion was not ulm-JUit It w as this that made him nervous this that made him start and tremble at, every sound. lYesently a thought struck him. " W hen's Watt r he asked. ''Don't know, William dear; she aint been here for hours and hours. Maybe she's on the shore. " Mavbe she Is Til go and have a look, returned William. It must not bo amposed for a moment that William Jones had become afflii'ted with a sudden and tender interest in Matt he merely wantd to get quit of the cabin, that was nil. and he saw in this a reasonable ex- cns for walking out alone. He acconungly made his escape, and went wandering on along tlie shore. It was ten o clock wnen ne returned; ne was still rale, and drenched to the skin. The old man was di wing beside tbe Art, and alone. "Where's Matt f asked William again. "Ain't you seen her, "William dearl Well, she ain't here." William Jones did look s little uneasy this time, and it is hut duo to him to confess that his uneasiness v. as caused by Matt's prolonged altsence. Krratic as she was in her move ments, she had not been accustomed to stay ing out so late, emieeialiy on a mgnt wnen tne rain was pouring and not a glimmer of star or moon was to be seen. Wonder what she's a-doin1 of r laid Wil liam; "suppose I'dliestwaitupforhor. Here, old man, yon go to bed, d'ye hear you ain't wanted anyhow. The old man accordingly went to bed, and William sat up to await Matt's return. He sat beside the hearth, looked iuto the smolder ing firo. and listened to the rain as It poured down steadily upon the roof. Occasionally he got up and went to the door; lie could ase nothing, but he heard the patter of the falling rain and the low, dreary moan of the troubled sea. Hour after hour passed, and Matt did not come. William Jones began to doze by the fire then he sank into a heavy sleep. He awoke with a start, and found that it was broad daylight' The Are was out, tile rain had cmml to fall, and the morning sun was creeping in at the windows. He looked around, and saw that he was still alone. He went into Matt's room it was empty. 8he had not returned. He was now filled with a vague uneasiness. He made up a bit of fire, and was about to issue forth agoin in search of the truant when all further trouble was saved him tb door opened, and Mutt herself appeared. She seemed almost as much disturbed as William Jones himself. Her face was very pale, her hair wild, her dress In great dis order. Hue started on seeing him; then, as suming a rather devil-may-care look, she lounged m. "You're up early, William Jones," she said. "Yes. I am up early, be replied, grufny "'cause why? 'cause I ain't been to bed. And where have yuu been jest you tell me that." "Why, I've been out, of course I" returned the girl, defiantly. "That won't do, Matt," returned William Jones. "Come, you'll jest tell me where you've been. You ain't been out all uight for nothing." The girl gave him a look half of defiance, half of curiosit y ; then bhe threw herself down, rather than sat, uiion a chair. "I'm tired, 1 am," she aaid, "and hungry and cold!" "Will you tell me where you've been, Mattf cried William Jones, trembling with auspi cious alarm. "Course I wiH, if you keep quiet," said the girl in answer. "There ain't much to tell, neither. I were away along to Pencroes when the heavy rain came on; then I lay down behind a haystack and fell asleep, and when I woke up it was daylight, and I come home." William Jones looked at her steadfastly and long: then, as if satisfied, he turned away. About an hour later he left the hut and walked along the shore, straining big eyat seaward. But instead of looking steadfastly at one spot, as his custom was, he paused now and again to gaze uneasily about him. At every sound he started and turned pale. In truth, he was becoming a veritable coward afraid almost of the sound of his own foot steps on the sands. CHAPTER XTV". THE C ABA VAN DlflATHXAKH. Several days passed away, during which William J urn showed a strange aud signifi cant affection for his own fireside. Ho went out a little in the sunlight; but directly night came, he locked and bai-ricaded the door as If against thievus, and ducliued, on any induce ment, to cross the threshold. Even had three-decker gone aihore in tJio ntiLbor hood, te woul't have thought .W.ce before ia- um:c forth inui the dreaded darkness. For AVi liaiu Janes was genuinely afraid his horaiitary calm of mind wr.s shaken, not so much with horror at a murderous deed, wilh consternation that his life-long secret bad been discovered by one mau, and might, sooner or later, lie discovered by others. He did not put implicit faith even in Monk; it was his nut ui e to trust nobody where money w3 concerned. As to returning back to the cave until he hail quite recovered his equanimity was quite out of the question. Even by daylight he avoided the spot with a holy horror. Only in his dreams, w hich were dark and troubled. 1 lid he visit it to see the face of the murdered "Tin in the darkness, and the hand of the murdered man pointing at him with cold, de caying finger. . The day after toe murder he had been rreatly unsettled by a visit from Tim Linney, ho demanded news of bis master, and said that ha had not retained to the caravan all oight Tim seemed greatly troubled, but gave vent to no very violent ebullitions of grief. When he was gone Matt sat by the S reside, and looked long and keenly at William Jones. "What are you staring atf 1 cried be, fidget ing uneasily under her gate. ISowt," said Matt; "I were only wonder- "Then don't go wondering," exclaimed the rood man, rather inconsistently. " Vm mind your own business, and don't be a fool I" And he turned testily and gazed at the fire. But Matt, whose eyes were full of a curious light, was not to be abashed. "Ain't you well, William J ones r she asked. "I'm well enough I am." "It's queer, aint it, that the painter chap never come homef "How should I know!" growled William. Maybe he's gone back to where he come from." "Or maybe he's drowudedf Or maybe tummat else has happened to him?" suggested Matt "Never you mind him, my gal. He's all right, never fear. Aud if he ain't, it's no atf air o' yours, or mine neither. You go along out and play." Matt went out as directed, and it was some hours before she returned. She found her guardian seated in his old place by the fire, looking at vacancy. He started violently as she entered, and made a clutch at the rude piece of ship's iron which served as a poker. ' Be it you, Matt! Lor', how you startled me I I were I were taking a dora." "Pve been up yonder," said Matt. "Up wheerf" "Up to the painter chap's cart lie ain't come back; and the man is searchln' for liun all up and down the place." Fortunately it was very dark, so that she could not see tee expression of her hearer's face. She walked to the fireplace, and, tak ing a box of lncifera from a ledge, Iwiran to procure a light, with the view of igniting the rushlight fixed to tbe table. But in a moment W illiam blew out the match and snatched the box from ber. "What are you doin1 of!" he cried. "Wast ing the matches, as if they cost now t You'll come to the work us afore you're dona" 1 be days passed, and there was no news of the absent man. Every day Matt went up to the caravan to make ihuiiuk At last. one afternoon, she returned, looking greatly troubled; her eyea were red, too, as if she bad been crying. "Wliat's the matter now?" demanded Wil liam, who had left his usual seat and was standing at the door. Nowt," said Matt, wiping her eyelids with tne back or her hand. "Don't you toll no lie. You've beerd sumniat Stopl What's that theer under your armr All at once be had perceived that she car ried a large roll of something wrapped In brown paper. He took it from her, and opened it nervously. It was the crayon por trait of herself executed by the defunct artist. "Who gave yon ttus here!" cried William Jones, trembling more than ever. "Tim." "Who's htr "Hun a oome looking arter his master. The painter chap aint found ; and now Tiro's going away in the cart to tell his friends. And he give me this my pic tor'; he give me it to keep. His master said I were to have it and I mean to keep it now he's dead." n illiaiu Jonas handed back tlie picture, and seemed relieved, indeed, when it was out of his hands. "Dead f he muttered, not meeting Matt's eyes, but looking right out to sea, "n ho told you he were dead!" Matt did not reply, but gazed at William so lung and so significantly that the good man, conscious of her scrutiny, turned and plunged into the darkness of his dwelling. An hour later a loud voice called him forth. He went to the door, and there was Monk, of Moaksburst It was the first tune they had met since they parted on the night of the murder. Monk was dressed in a dark sum mar suit, and looked unusually spick and span. "Where's the girlr he cried, after a whis pered colloquy of some minutes. "Matt, where are your" In answer to the call Matt appeared at the door. No sooner did she perceive Monk than she trembled violently, aud went very pale. TJonie here, Matt," he said, with an insin uating smile. "Seel I've brought 1 thing for you something pretty for yon to wear." As he spoke be drew from his waistcoat pocket a small gold ring, set with turquoise stones. But Matt still trembled, and shrank away. "I dont want itl I shan't wear it," she cried. "Nonsense, Mattl" said Monk. "Why, it's a ring fit for a lady. Come, let me put it on your finger. 80 great seemed her agitation, so deep her dread of him, that she could not stir; so that when he approached, laughing, and caught her round the waist, he slipped the ring on her finger before she could resist But it only remained there a moment W ith a quick. sharp cry, she tore herself free, and, taking the ring off, threw it right away from ber upon the sand. Then, with a wild gesture of fear and loathing, she rushed into the cottage. William Jones walked over and picked up the ring, while Monk stood scowling darkly alter the fugitive. "What the devil ails tbe girl!" cried the latter, with a fierce oath, pocketing the pres ent "1 dunna bue's never been the same since since the painter chap went missing. 1 m afeerd he turned tbe gal s head." "Hell turn no more heads," muttered Monk under bis breath; be added aloud and with decision, "There must be an end to this. She must be married to me at once." Do you mean it, master,' ben you spoke on it fust i thought you was joking. "Then you were a fool for your pains. She's old enough, and bold enough, and vix enish enough; but I'll tame her. I tell you there must be no more delay. My mind's made up, and 1 11 wait no longer." Sinking their voices they continued to talk together for some time. Now, Matt waf crouchiuit close to the threshold, and liad heard e tfy word of the above conversation, and tnucu that followed it. When Monk walked aw ay and disappeared, leaving WuV '.iam Jones ruminant at the broken gate, she suddenly reappeared. Curiously enough all ber excitement bad deported, instead of weeping or protesting, aae looked at n uiiam Jones and laughed. Monk bad left bis noi se at the coastguard station. Remounting he rode rapidly away through tbe sandhills in the direction of the laka As be approached the spot of the old encampment he saw that the caravan had gone. He rode on thoughtfully till he gained the highway, when be put his horse into a rapid trot Just before be gained the gate and a venue near to which he had first encountered Brinkiey, he saw the caravan before him on the dusty road. He hesitated for a moment, then hurried rapidly forward, and, arriving clues to tin vehicle, saw the Irishman's head looking round at him from the driver's seat. He beckoned, and Tim pulled up. "Has your master returned? I am in formed that he has been missing for some days." Tim shook his head very dolefully. "No, sot; suits sight have I seen of him for three days aud three nights, I'm going back wid tbe baste and the house to tell his friends the bad news. Maybe it's making fun of me he is, and I'll find him somewheres on the road," "I hope you will," said Monk, sympa thetically. "I thinkbum it is quite pos sible he has, as yoa suggest, wandered home ward. Good day to you." So saying Monk turned off by the gate which they had just reached, and rode away up the avenue. Tim looked after him till be disappeared. :n tuo some curious change ca;ce ever him which had come over Matt after she had been nV.enavj to the colloquy between Monk and William Jones.
