A voice or thaukfiglvlng next fell on bia car, and he saw the Indian girl on her knees, wltb her hand clasped, her streaming eyes rained heavenward, and giving tbanki to the Great Spirit St. Deola started as be it axed into the deep blue eyes fastened on him. A moment more, he heard his niyne prouounced in a tone, sweet and familiar, that made hia heart bound wild ly In his boatmi. "Tola scene baa progressed rar enough," now spoke the one Simon be lieved to le bl wife. "Hlmon i.ooois, your wickedness has come to a climm, and back on your own bead snail rail in terrible cousequeuces of your machina tion!" "Ha-ha. Loulne, you nave gone too fur now!" hohols uttered, confidently. "If you imagined your marriage was but a Jest, you were mistaken. You'll find the knot too strongly tied to be cast on at will." 'Poor fool! Cunnot you open your eyes? Simon Lobois, did you think Lons St. Denis would have married you wnne life' remained? Did yon think she would have stooped to mate with you when the grave was open to her?" 'A and are you not married to mer Are you not my wife?" 'I thiuk you d Hud me a nard one to manage: for at this very moment, were you not beneath my notice, I would chal lenge you to mortal combat, and i u serve you wore thun Goupnrt did. Look, J3I- mon! Don t you see that Indian youtn resting In Goupart's arms? How I have lonaed for this moment! Up up, my father! Tby children are safe, and If they have returned to thee In exchanged gulsos, be assured they left thee iu the aamo way!" "How?" gasped Simon, starting back and turning pnlo. "You you " "Why. I am your wife, Simon, if yon say so; but If you keep me, you shall fight a duel with me every morning, and we'll alteruato till one of us fulls; first morn ing, pistols next morning, swords. You have seen me shoot some. At this juncture the truth had forced Itself to the old marquis' mind. "It must bo!" be whispered, seising h s noble son by the band. "It must bo my own noblo Louis! Assure me I do not dream." "You do not, father, for I am your own Louis. But see here comes Louise. Don't cast her off because-her skin is dusky!" "Is It possible!" gasped i.oiiois, as ne saw Louise sink on her father's bosom. "There's been some foul witchery here some deep, Infernal machiontlon! Ixnils! Louise! The son la the daughter, and the daughter is the son! There's a foul plot here!" . "Ay!" cried Louis, tearing tho rich gown he wore from his body, and re vealing the light undress of a French of ficer, "there has been a foul plot, and you can well explain It!" "Mo explain?" stammered the villain, gaxlng- first at the youth and then at the maiden, who yet wore her Indian dress. "Who are you!" he gasped, starting to wards the seeming Indian, and seizins the dusky arm. "Speak! Who are ye?" "I am one whom you once sought for wife!" "Louise St. Julien?" "Yes." "Ah! Duped befooled! But there's a plot!" A few moments more he gazed upon the two metamorphosed ones, and then, utterly powerless from mad delirium, he sank down. , . , But Simon Lobois was not the only one. in the dark. The old man nud St. Denis were lost In amazement. The lat ter had clupod his own loved one to his bosom, and. she had whispered Into his ear the sweet promlso of love once more, yet he could. not, understand It. - "I see you are all astonished,'.' said Louis, "and I will tell you what I kuow of this funny affair. So sit down and listen; sit down all of you." .And down they sat, Goqualla keeping close by her' companion's side,' and. seem ing as happy as the rest of the happy ones. "Now listen," commenced Louis. "You wmrmber oa Uist night when wo played 'hid and find m' in the yard, Louis nd I went oft Into the bouse bi-fore we bid. W bad planned to have som sport with (Jotipsrt. IxmiIs and I never real ised how much we resembled each other until w exchanged garba. When I aaw her in my clothes, she looked Juat like my own- self In a mirror; and wh n I had put on her dresa, which had to be let out but very little, she assured m 1 wss her counterpart, and when I looked In th mirror, I could hav swora sh stood be fore me. W had reached th corner of tb bare, and I was ahowing Louise wber to hide, Intending then to hav gone myself to tb stable, when a party of Indians rubed and seized upon ua. and having gagged us, hurried out -through tb postera. Away they took u. and all night they kept on through the deep forest. One of them spok to lite In the Chickasaw loogu. and 1 was upon the point of answering taiiu, wb the thonght struck me thst he only wish ed to try if 1 knew the lunguage; so 1 pretended to know nothing of it. You know I learned a great deal of it froin old Oh k bow. After I bad listened to their conversation, and I found that I tb glriwas to be carded to Now Or leans, while the boy was to be taken up to the Natchez. Of course, I then knew that Simon Lobois had a hand in thlk, for be had gon to-New Orleans, wher he meant to hav Louise taken, and there force her to marry him, while 1 was carried off another way, perhaps to be killed and thus be would have all our father's wealth. Before morning, w came to tho place where w were to sep arate. I did one feel ilk giving battl to the whole pack; but I was wholly un armed, and the thought was dropped. I begged to be allowed to speak a few parting words with tny companion, and they granted my request. I told Louis what I bad heard. 'Now,' said I, 'they don't mistrust th change we've uud. I will let them still think I am th girl, and thus you will I free of Simon; while. If you go to the Natches, still retaining your mat dsigulsa, you can at any moment save yourself from death by revealing yourself.' At all events, w both concluded that It would be best for each of us to continue the deception, and we did so. And now for Lonlso's story." Thus called upon, Iouiso commented. Sb told how she was taken to the vil lage of the Whit Apple by Stung Ser pent; how they meant to kill her, and for what strange purpose; how Coqualla Interceded for her, and how It was ar ranged that sha should marry the prin cess. ' "Her I was puiz!cd," said Iou!sej "but I determined to tlfrow myself upon Coqualla's friendship. I told her the se cret of my seg, and asked her to save me. She threw her arms about my neck and promised to keep my secret, and be to me a alster, while ahe passed for my wife. So my secret was safe. Only sbo told her father when be was on hia death bed, and thus he was led to absolve m from my promise to remain with them." CHAPTER XXIII. Louise went on and told her startling story, and as sh did so, more than on bright look of holy gratitude was cast upon the beautiful Coqualla. "And now," said she, in conclusion, "I am able to give you some clue to the great mystery which underlies the whole. When Stung Serpent was upon his death bed, he sent for me, and he told me all, and he gave me this paper in token of his truth. Bead it, father, and know what a villain you hav kept beneath yur room." As Louise handed her father the paper, Simon Lobois started to his feet. "Back!" shouted Louis, springing for ward and pushing him back into his chair. "Tony, watch this man. and ace that he does not leave the room." Old Tony, who had stood by and heard all, now moved to Simon's side, and as the villain gazed upon the huge bulk of the negro, ha uttered a stilled groan, and settled back. The marquis read the paper aloud. It was as follows: "This Is -my bond, that I will pay to Stung Serpent one hundred large pieces of gold, Iu French coin, whenhe shall have removed Louis and Louise St. Ju lien from their home. And he, on bia part, promises that said Louis shall be killed, and that Louiso shall be sent safe ly to the middle trail on Lake Pontchaf train. SIMON LOBOIS." That was enough. Simon denied it all, then swore, then drew his sword, and then Tony knocked him down; and ere long afterwards be was taken from the room. . Before noon, Louise had contrived, with Coqualla's assistance, to remove the lust stain from her skin, and when she stood, all white and pure, she saw a tear on Coqualla's dark cheek. "What is It?" sh asked. "Nothing," was th eply. "Ah, tell me the troth. Coqualla will not deceive her sister." "No no," murmured the noble girl, throwing her arms about Louise's neck, and pillowing her head upon her bosom. "But you will forgive me.. Coqualla hns left her people forever, but she has not left her skin." "But tell me all, my sister." "Coqualla loved the White Hand, and she was only a sister. Now Coqualla has seen another with the same beautiful face. But she does not murmur. She Is content; only" "Go on, my sister. Tell me all." . "If Coqualla was white, she could love; O, my sister does not know bow she could have been loved had she not been Coqualla's sister!" Louise had read the girl's secret, and as she1 fuzed Into those soft, mild fea tures, she uttered, with ail the truth of her aoul: "Coqualla doe not need a whiter skin. She Is beautiful enough. I know Co qualla's heart, and her face la as pure as that." The maiden princess blessed her sister, and wiped away her tears, for ahe heard some one coming. . , On the next morning the room where Simon Lobois had been put was found empty, and' the slave Peter was also found to be missing; but no search was made for them,, for the one was worth less and the other carried guilt enough to punish him with its shame and bur den. . And now Joy was once more in. St Ju- lien's household. "' Goupart and Louise wandered about together, and for a while Louis was left alone, for the only other young person with whom he could asso ciate seemed to shun him. One day Louise drew her brother one side, and whispered with him, for she had ttt morals found Croatia U tears, sad th poor princess had murmured th thought of going back to the homes of her fathers to II down by thoir grates.

And Coqualla placed on of her soft hands in hia, and then rested her hesd upon his bosom, and as her dark tresses fell orer his shoulders, bidiog ber face and the tears that shone there, she an swered him: "Coqualla can give the ail her heart, and be to the a stare for life. But if you make hey your fe, O be sure yon will never regret ltj for Coqualla's heart would break If you laved ber no more!" For a long time the panic caused by the fearful plot of the Indians lasted among th colonists, but they gradually waded out of the danier. though their way was through mieb blood.

(The end.) Hia Blnn Did Not Work. Stories of Yankee shrewdness have always been widely circulated, but when one gets ahead of a Yankee there Is very little said about It, especially on the part of the man from the North. Several days ago a hotelkeeper at a small station on one of the roads run ning ut of Memphis put the laugh on a drummer from the North In a very good way, and the traveling man was compelled to beat a hasty retreat The drummer arrived at the hotel atjout 8 o'clock In the evening, and fearing that he would not be able to get any supper he asked the landlord what he could get to eat f "My friend," said the hotelkeeper, "I can give you anything from a pickled elephant to a broiled . canary bird's tongue for supper to-utght." The drummer looked at the man, and. thinking that he was jesting, decided to call his bluff. "All right, my friend," said the drum mer; "I'll take some pickled elephant" "Very well," suia tne Host; "I'll go and get it." He was gone about five minutes, and when he returned said: , "All right, sir; supper will be ready in a moment, loull nave to take s whole one, aa we don't carve them at; ter dark.'' . .

Port Arthur, Ont., May 0. By an accident on the main line of the Cana dian Pacific near Deeter ftation, 52 miles east of this place, 12 laborers im prisoned in the wreckage of a derailed work train were either killed ontrigbt or burned to death. Eight others were frightfully burned, and a number of them will die. The men were asleep when the train left the track. The train was running at a high speed when it was derailed, presumably by the breaking of an axle Every car left the track and plunged down an embankment Into the ditch. The men who were killed were asleep in what is known as the "roarding car," which was attached to the rear of the train. There were 30 men in the car. It was crushed like an eggshell, killing some of the men outright and pinning others under the wreckage, to that they could not extricate themselves. Fire added its horror to the scene, the splintered woodwork of the car being ignited by an overturned stove. The men who escaped Injury at once set to work ta lihwate,, ti impriaoneJ workmen, bat they were driven back by the flames, which spread rapidly. One of the imprisoned men succeeded in extricating himself, and smashing a window, crawled out from under the wreckage. He reported that several others, some of them badly injured, were lying near the window. The res cuers succeeded in getting ten or 12 men through the shattered windows. The names meanwhile were growinp fiercei, and the men were finally driven from the work of rescue by the intense heat. IN WATERY GRAVES. Fifteen Livea Lost In Wreck of a Fishing Schooner. Canso, B. C, May 9. The American fishing schooner Gloriana, Captain George Stoddard, of Gloucester, Mass., ran ashore last night during a tbi- k fog on the cliffs at Wale cove, near White Point ledges, and 15 of the crew, including the captain, were drowned, out of a total of 18. When the Gloriana struck on the ledge she passed over the outer ridges, but upon the inner reef butted against a cliff of rocks, and then fell off into the sea. The place where the Gloriana was wreckexHs one of the most dangerous on the Nova Scotia coast. It is lees than a mile from where the steamer Blammanden was wrecked last year, and only half a mile from the scene of the wreck of the steamer Tiber in Feb ruary, 1902, when 22 lives were lost. The three survivors were brought here this afternoon, and are being cared for by the United States consul.- They say that the vessel is ia total wreck. None of the bodies have been re covered. Japan Still Holds Claim. Honolulu, May 9. A letter received from the department of state by Charles L. Rhodes of this city, says the depart ment has no knowledge of the reported withdrawal by Japan of her claims to Marcus island. . Representatives of the Marcus island guano company here and in Washington etatea some time ago that Japan had made such a with drawai, and naa also agreed to pay reasonable indemnity for having pre vented the expedition sent out by the company from making examinaton of the island. . , ., London No Longer "Knock" Yerkes. New York, May 9. Charles T, Yerkes, who arrived on the Kronprlnz Wilhelm yesterday; is on a rush trip to Cadfornia. Within four weeks he will be back to take up his work in London. 'All the knocking has stopped,"' said Mr. Yerkes. "London is becoming used to the tramway upheaval inci dental to the laying of the tubes, and her citizens are taking things as a mat ter of course.

Harrimaa Lin a are Turning Thought of Thousands to Oregon. O. M. McKinney, who has charge of the Immigration department of the Harriman line, met with the real es tate dealers of Salem to discuss matters relating to bis work. lie explained the plan of bis department and talked with the real estate men concerning the methods of advertising that tbey mast rely npon to draw immlstrat'oa to thl state. I bat Orn-n i -now th most widely talked of state in the Union is the declaration he made, after telling now trie resources of this state hare been advertised through the immigra tion bureau. At an indication of hat has been done for the Willamette val ley, he said that since his department has been working between 4,000 and 5,000 one-way railway tickets have been aed by Eat tern people, who came to the valley and did not go away agdn. He said that the immigration bureau of the Harriman lines is tbe moat per fect enterprise of tne kind ever org, n ized in the United States, and that it reaches in tbe most effective manner those pers -na who are the most desira ble immigrants. Within seven months after be began work his department bad p'aced the literature advertising this state into the hands of 2,000,000 people. The bureau has placed in the field six lecturers, with stereopticon views showing scenes illustrating the resources and industries of Oregon, and thete lecturers are addressing Eastern audiences four evenings a wees:. Six immigration agents in the different tectiocs of the middle West are giving their whole time to disseminating in formation regarding this ttate, tuper- vising the distribution of literature to those who are moet likely to come to this state, and aiding scores of Eastern real estate men who are encouraging Western immigration. By means of this vigorous policy the people of the Eastern states have been interested in Oregon, with the result that there is more talk of this state as a desirable place for borne-seekers than theie is of any other state. Little Chang la Herd Law. Aside from the amendment of the law regarding the running ol stock in ainitnoman county, no change was made by the last legislature in tbe herd law. Section 61 of the new rood law prohibits tbe herding of stock npon tbe highways, thereby obstructing them with earth, stones, or other debris, but bis section does not prohibit herding stock on the highways so long as there is no obstruction remaining more than 24 hours. Plenty of dold but Little Silver. Clackamas county officers report an unusual scarcity of silver. Treasurer Cahill saj s gold pieces, in denomina tions of $20, mere never before as plen tiful as thev are at thia time, and he finds it troublesome to keep on hand a sufficient amount of silver with which to make change. No reason is assigned for this condition, save that it indicates in a suDstantial way a greater decree of prosperity among all classes. Wool In rurioB County PooL From information produced at. the Marion county woolgrowers' associa tion meeting, it seems probable that the quantity of wool controlled by the pool this year will be nearly double that of laet year. The soliciting com mittee baa not yet completed its work, but thus far 50 members have been secured, and it is expected that the total amount of. woo represented will be from 75,000 to 100,000 pounds. Survey of the McKenzie. Professor Mc Alia ter, who is at the head of the University of Oregon me' chanical department, has completed ar rangements for a hyd ographical survey of the McKensie river this summer. rne survey will be made for the pur pose of determining the water power of the river with a view of locating the points where electric plants and the lixe may be established to the best ad vantage. j Water Seeps from Ditch. The irrigating ditch belonging to Henry E. Ankeny, of Eugene, and Mrs. J. T. Henley, of Klamath county, runs through the town of Klamath Falls, and the village authorities have com menced suit in the circuit court to se cure an injunction against the owners, alleging 'that the property is a nuisance on account of injury from seepage. - New Road to Crater Lake. W. S. Aran!,, superintendent of Crater Lake national park, reports that he will have the new road leading to the lake ready for use by August 1. It will be shorter and have fewer bumps and steep grades than the old one It will enable a journey from Fort Kla math to the lake, 25 miles, in 2 hours. . Rainier Lumber Shipments. Ninety-five carloads of lumber and shingles were shipped from Rainier in the past month. This does not include the cargo of 600,000 feet shipped to San Pedro by sailing vessel.
