Ana tnen he always stopped at tbU point, as though what further vengeance the gods of retaliation "would inflict depended on circum stances, only that it wag his full de sign she should feel the bitterness of death and desertion that had wrung his heart and turned It to stone. Fedora was under some species of spell. She even knew not herself what It meant. This remarkable man interested her he seemed to arouso some half slum bering 'memory that came as might a vatfue dream a memory that must have been pleasant, for it had an in toxicating effect. The strangeness of the sensation aroused her curiosity; she could not tell why she was drawn so Irresistibly toward this black-bearded American nabob, who had set the gossips of Iondon agog, whose name was on every lip, and of whom she had even heard the captain proudly mention moro than once at the table as "my friend the Marquis." Nor did she make any strong effort at resistance just as one is caught by a swift cur rent and drawn on so rapidly that the senses grow confused. What more natural than that she ehould ask him to call, either during her usual hour for receiving, or later when the captain might be at home to enjoy a cigar with him as they com pared notes on adventurous travels in the Jungles and forests of Africa and America. The Marquis promised to take ad vantage of tho first opportunity; then others came up and their teteateto was broken. CHATTER XVII. Spinning tho Web. Some weeks had passed. All along tho line the Marquis found himself in a condition to report prog reaa. i Mazette had removed to cozy lode ings in a respectable neighborhood, and encouraged by tho appreciation of this unknown but wealthy patron, she had set to work most diligently upon the task given her. With nourishing food, and hope fill ing her heart, the future appeared rosy-hned, and she soon began to ap pear like the cheery Mazette of old. Mora work followed M. Duval sounded her praises aloud, and there were those who already thought it the thing to follow in the footsteps of the latest lion, so that Mazette's future seemed assured. Then one day there was a knock at tho door of her studio, for success had enabled her to have a workroom such as she had longed to possess, lo, these many years. Upon opening the door the little min iature painter saw a tall, heavily bearded gentleman, whose air was somewhat foreign. Sho straightway began to tremble, under the conviction that this must be her illustrious patron to whom sho owed so much; for, be It known. M. Duval had been artfully prevailed tf-pon to give as elaborate a descrip tion of the noble Marquis as lay in his lower. When her visitor spoke his voice was deep and reassuring; and there seemed to be some raro quality about It that almost startled little Mazette. arousing ill-defined and hazy memo ries of the past which she could not whip into any concrete form, try as she might. When the Marquis offered his hand 'at leaving she was a little confused by the warmth of his clasp and the 'eagerness with which he promised to drop In again and see how tho work i progressed. 1 When the Marquis left the modest i little studio he was surprised at the glow Of generous feeling that came 'over him. i i "God bless the brave little woman It does a man good to even bask in Jher presence. Here, at least, Is no de ception such as stalks abroad In so ciety's circles she had only good ,' words for her fellow creatures. At "least let me be grateful for the privi lege of being able to secure her fu .ture. This holy desire for her good may in a measure offset the still fierce passion for revenge. At least it gives me Joy, an experience I had never hop ed to feel again." . Ills other plans were maturing. Evidently the Marquis was in no hurry neither is the satiated cat wli?n sho has caught a mouse that sho c$ot devour. Llvermore's losses at the gaming ta bles were not nil Indeed, it seemed n though circumstances had taken a fiendish delight in combining to smite this son of fortune at a time when he could not find a means of resistance. Tho ecveral companies controlling South African mines In which Liver more had investments, nnd which had been paying good dividends, were bought up by some new combination, backed by unlimited capital, and there was a gravo suspicion that tho Fmall shareholders were about to be frozon out In a way perfectly legiti mate yet shockingly cruel. And there were others, too. lteally, the doughty captain was passing through an experience that promised to make an old man of him if long continued. Twice the Marquis had called upon Fedora, and on each occasion exerted himself to fascinate as he had never before done in all his life. Affairs were In this state, and the Marquis could see the possible tragic outcome of his systematic assault all along the line, unless his nerve failed, or something occurred to break the stern resolution by which he had bound himself. A few more visits, he believed, would complete the fascination of Fedora- harassed by accumulating debts and made boorish by his troubles, It might be readily assumed that the captain would be anything but an amiable companion these days, and the couple. never having had a genuine love for each other, would drift further opart. This would be his opportunity the glitter of his unlimited wealth, to gether with the strange hold he had upon Iedora. by reason of her old- time love, though sho herself might not know the real cause these two com bined should tempt her to leave the falling fortunes of the captain and seek happiness with the man who con trolled her will. It was a fiendirh revenge, and many times the marquis cursed himself for entertaining U; yet the memory of his dreadful sufferings drove him back again with renewed zeal to pick up the threads of fate where he had dropped mem and go on with feverish eager ness. It wa3 only when he thought of Mazette that he winced and grew con fusednot for worlds would he ever have her know what wicked thoughts struggled with his better nature, and usually gained the mastery. One day the marquis, still pursuing the one object of his presence in Lon don at this unfashionable season of the year, dropped In at the establish ment of Captain Llvermore. resolved to play his cards to advantage, since a cnsl3 was near. His quick eye noted signs of con fusion, and he knew disaster had at last fallen upon the captain, who must seek a cheaper home yes, evidently a move was contemplated his sturdy blows were beginning to tell, and he should feel a glow of satisfaction in the region of his heart. The occasion would be propitious for his master stroke surely he should be able to win her consent what had she to consider but a ruined home and a husband whom she had wedded while loving another? He offered her unlimited wealth, be yond the dream of the human mind. love, and all the attractions the world can bestow. Yes, she would yield he knew how weak her nature was had she not shown It when throwing him over for fortune's smiles? she had no anchor such as the safeguard of a husband's love would throw around her he felt assured of this as he did of anything in his whole life. When the marquis entered the house It was with the confident air of one who has abundant faith to believe In the positive success awaiting him not over-confidence such as loses battles. but the quiet assurance that springs from a thorough knowledge of the powers he controls. It chanced, however, that there was one thing he had not counted on, a matter that might scorn of small eon sequence, and yet which must burst upon him with appalling force As he sat and waited sounds of a commotion were heard, such as caused the marquis to start, turn deadly nale and tremble as he had never done when bodily danger menaced him then through the open door came dashing two little tots, one a colden haired angel of three, the other a sturdy, black-eyed English lad of four across the floor they scampered, straight to where the American na bob sat gripping the sides of his chair, and with the assurance some children possess, forthwith climbed directly upon his knees and took possession At that moment the fort was nearer being carried by assault than since the day its steel buttressed walls had been first barricaded against the forces of sentiment and the holler pas sions that come from above; for up to mis nour this stern man, bent upon ngnung ms wrongs of the nasr.. had never once suspected that Fedora was a mother, and the knowledge came upon him like u thunderbolt from a clear sky. It would be almost Impossible to adequately measure the rurnrUn and consternation that overwhelmed the marquis as he sat there an.l tnit ti,n chubby arms of Fedora's little dar lings about his neck. It was wonderful what an inrtnonro this new and astounding element had upon mm ne was quite dis armedthose chubby hands upon his face, the little cooing voice, as trusting eyes looked up Into hl3 own, exclaiming: "Dodo love oo" a man must havo colder blood In his veins than the marquis to enuure tins ana at the same moment plan destruction to the little maiden's parents. In that short time he saw a great light, such as had never dawned on mm uerorc. Trus, It cl-ht die out s.nln. brer whelmed by the darkness of passion's sway; but the influence of his associa tion with those Innocents would have a decided bearing unon his future Thus Fedora found them when she came in, and greatly she marveled at the sudden fancy her little darlings naa laiten for the mysterious marquis. Of course, their nurse was sum moned and they were banished from me scene; but the retreat was eon ducted with much reluct ally tm the part of Miss Dorothy, who seemea 10 have conceived a great rancy ror the marquis. Thus, the visit that ho had Intended should be so dramatic, and lead to a crisis, was of an altogether different nature. And he came away without, by act or word, having advanced the desperate scheme which had so filled his mind on crossing that home portal. It was not remorse the time had not come for that; but while the kisses of that Innocent little prattler were yet warm upon his cheek he could not strike the terrible blow that would possibly blight hor mother's future happiness. Not being In tho humor to enter social intercourse with his fellows, he avoided those who would have sought his company, and spent the evenlnc strolling along Oxford street and High Holborn, watching the crowds, smok ing innumerable cigars and wrestling with his thoughts. As the hour grew later he found himself quite a distance from his hotel, beyond St. Paul's, and even on the border of the Whitechanel district cf unenviable fame as one of the most notorious slum districts of the mod ern Uabylon. It was a weary distance to his ho tel, and the marquis naturally looked around for a cab. Luck seemed to favor him. for tho voice of an eager Jehu hailed from behind. The four-wheeler was one of the night-hawk variety, much the worse for wear, but to a shipwrecked sailor any port In a storm is good enough: so the marquis, witn a laugh, bundled himself Inside and sang out his orders He might not have been so easy In his mind had he known that a couple of fellows swung themselves, one up with the driver on his seat, and the othei vehlnd the growler.

After they were comfortably adjusted, with par cels and umbrellas, the one lathe blue CiOth suit scanned the two men who eat opposite, and remarked to her com panion: "It's too near the stove here; let's move down." Then the girls arose, and took seats farther down, out of range of the two men. "What was the matter, Clara?" the other girl asked; "It wasn't really too warm back there." "No," the first girl answered with rplrit, "but that horrid man with the brown hat and overcoat sat near us. He is always on the car near m Laura, and I detest the sight of him." "I don't know him," commented Laura; "who Is he?" "Why, I don't know him, either." Clara explained; "but I won't sit where 1 have to look at him." "Has he ever been rudo to you?" asked Laura. "Hude?

They got on at different streets, so of course their drunkenness was not the result of protracted mutual con viviality. Again, one was in full eve ning dress and wore a hat of modern make and style. The othr was dressed like a tramp a seeming "Weary Willie." Just come into town from his rural travels, ana wearlni? slouch hat in the last stage of dilapi dation. Pretty soon both men were sound asleep, with heads bent forward and resting on their knees. Shortly tne dude's hat fell off hi3 head and then the tramp's followed suit. A sympa thetic passenger picked them up and put the silk hat on the tramn's head and vice versa. He then gave the iramp a shake and told 1.1m he had reached his street. The bell was rune and he was helped to the rear platform and off the car and there left to eniov the hygienic benefits of a cold shower hath.

Champion, Mich., March 17th, Mrs. A. Welktt, wife of a local photog rapher, has had a remarkable expe rience recently. Mrs. Welktt tells the story this way: "I could not sleep, my feet wore cold, my limbs cramped. I had an awful hard pain across uiy l ack. I had to get up three or four times every night. I was very nervous and fearfully despon dent, I had very little appetitie. "After I had suffered in this way for five years, I begun to use Dodd's Kid ney Fills. When I had taken a few pills you ought to have seen what came from my kidneys. It looked like a spoiled egg only darker. "I kept on using Dodd's Kidney Pills till I was cured. Now I can sleep well and do not have to get up In the night. I have no pain in my back or limbs and I feel better than I have for years." Liquor Dealer Karroo.

Hunting for the Colonel. An army surgeon recently returned from service In the Philippines tells a new 6tory, which Is one of the best that has come from our new Dosses slons. He says a soldier was serving in a regiment whose colonel was verv much averse to leaving the comforts of a city and who had pull enough to get himself assigned to special dutv in Manila, which had caused his absence from his regiment for several months. In the meantime a portion of that par ticular command got Into a mix-up wun some siray insurgents, and IncI- dentally the soldier referred to had an eye shot out. He put In some time in the hospital, and when convalescent was turned loose for a walk. As he strolled down the street he met a friend, who, seeing the bandage which hid the cavity, asked him, "What hap- peneu to your eye?" The soldier's other eye twinkled, and with true "dougtboy" wit he replied: "I wore that eye out up-country looking for that blooming colonel of mine on tho firing line." Novel rklmo Wrestling.

"Iff an old story that the United States treasurer occasionally nays war rants for the sum of one cent to credit ors of the government," said an old aepartment clerk the other day, "but it a so well known, but equally true. nevertheless, that government clerks are sometimes docked one cent for overstaying their annual leave a minute or a fraction thereof. In tho treasury department In particular the ruie is inflexible that a clerk who ex ceeds the regulation leave even for a minute In a year shall forfeit a pro portionate amount of his pay. "The taxation of delinquents re quires eternal vigilance and careful calculation, but it is regarded as ea sentlal to the best interests of the ser vice. No fractions of a minute are considered and there Is no nenalty less than a cent. The salary per minute la determined by dlvldlne the annual sal ary by all the worklnc days, which ex clude Sundays and holidays, and al lowing seven hours for each day. On that basis it is computed that the sal aries of government clerks average about a cent a minute. Of course, some are more and others less, but that covers the most of them. "It does not seem much to deduct ten cents from the $1,200 salary of a clerk who has exceeded hls sixty days' leave by ten minutes, but he Invari ably treats such action as a great, out rage on his rights a3 an American citizen. The other day a woman in the treasury upset the entire office In which she Is employed for almost a whole day," says the Washington Star, "In her persistent efforts to get back thirteen cents which had been deduct ed from her salary for overstaying her leave about a quarter of an hour. She nearly went Into hysterics, but the authorities were firm aud she had to submit."
