Sir Ivichard. who had turned to walk away, stopped suddenly, and his p'oat white eyebrows came top'ther in his red face with a savap 1 scowl.

Sir ltichard Devine, knight, ship bnildcr, naval contractor and million aire, vii the sou of a Harwich boat carpenter. Early left an orphan with a sister to support, he soon reduced his sole aim in life to the accumulation of money. A shrewd man of business, a thorough master of his trade, troubled with no scruples of honor or of delicacy, lie made money rapidly, and saved it when made. He married his sister to a wealthy Bristol merchant, one An thony Krere. and married himself to Vlllinor Wade, the eldest daughter of Col. Wotton Wade, an uncle by mar riage of remarkable scamp and dandy. Lord Bellasis. At that time, what with lucky speculations in the funds, and the legitimate profit on his government con tracts, he had accumulated a princely fortune, and could afford to live in princely magnificence. Bur the burden ol parsimony and avarice which he had voluntarily taken upon hini was not to lie shaken off, and the only show he made of his we.ihh was by purchasing on hts knighthood, the rambling but ontforta'ile house at: llampstead. and ostensibly retiring from active business. Mis retirement was net a happy one. lie v. as a stem father and a severe master. His servants haled and hi-' if feared linn. His only s.m Uiehard ap peared to inherit his father's strong will ami imperious manner. I'nder careful .e.ipervisieu and a just rul" lie might have l,ee:i 'guided to but left to his own devices outside, and galled by the iron yoke of parental discipline at" home, he became reckless and prodigal. The mot her—poor, timid Milinor. who had been rudely torn from the love of her youth, her cousin. I.ord Bellasis— tried to restrain him. but the headstrong though owning for his mother that sii'.iug love which is often a part of such violent natures, proved iut ract able. and. alter three years of parental feud, vent oil" to the conti :e:il, to pursue iliere the same reckless life which iu London had offended Sir Uiehard. Sir Uiehard. upon this, sent fir Maurice i-'rere. his sister's son, and bought for ii a coin mission in a marching regiment, hinting darkly et special favors to come. Ills open pre:eren:-e for his nephew had gall ed to the quick his sensitive wife, who cont r.tsie.l with some heart-pangs the galianl prodigality of father with tii" niggardly economy of hrr husband. Between the Ionises of Devine anil descended Wotton Wade there had long been liitle love. Sir Uiehard feit that the colonel despi-'eil him for a city knight, and had heard ihat Lord Bella sis and his friends had often lamented the hard fortune which gave the beauty. I''ilinor, |o so sordid a bridegroom. Lord Bellasis visited at Sir Uicliard's house during the first year of liis cous in's marriage: but upon the birth of the sou he affected a quarrel with the oily knight, and cursing him for a miserly curmudgeon, departed, more desperate ly at Wiir with fortune than over, for his old haunts. lie was now a hard cued, hopeless old man of sixty, bat tered iu health and ruined in pocket: bur who, by dint of stays, hair-dye and courage, yet faced the world with un daunted front. Of the possessions of the house of Wotton Wade, this old manor, tiinberless and bare, was all that remain ed. and its master rarely visited it. On the evening of the .".d of May Lord Bellasis had been attending a pigeon match at Hornsey Wood, and having resisted the importunities of his companion. Mr. Lionel Crofton. who wanted him to go on into town, he had avowed his intention of striking across Hampstead to Belsize. "1 have an ap pointment at the fir-trees on the Heath," he said, "with a par-oil." "A parson!" "Well, he is only just ordained. 1 met him last: year at Bath, on his vaca tion from Cambridge, and lie was good nongli to lose some money to me." "And now waits to pay il out of his Iirst curacy. I wish your lordship joy with all my soul. Then we must push on. for it grows late." "Thanks, my dear sir. for the 'we.' but 1 must go alone." said Lord Bella sis. dryly. "To-morrow you can settle witii me for the sitting of last week, llark! the clock is striking nine. Good night." At half-past nine Tiieharil Devine quit ted his mother's house to begin the new life he had chosen, and so. drawn to gether by that strange fate of circum stances which creates oveuis. those two approached each other. As the young man gained the middle of the path which led to the Heath, he met: Sir Uiehard returning from the village. It was no part of his plan to seek an interview, and he would have slunk past iu the gloom, but seeing him thus alone returning to a desolated home, the prodigal was templed to ut ter some words of farewell and of re gret. To his astonishment, however. Sir Uiehard passed swiftly on, with body bent: forward as one iu the net of fall ing. and with eyes unconscious of sur roundings. staring straight into the dis tance. Half terarified at this strange appearance. Uiehard hurried onward, and at a turn of the path stumbled upon somelking which horribly accounted for the curious action of the old man. A dead body lay upon its face in the heather, beside it was a heavy riding whip stained at the handle with blood, and an open pocket hook. Uiehard took up the book and read, in gold letters on the cover. "Lord Bellasis." The unhappy young man knelt down beside the body and raised it. The skull had been fractured by a blow, but if seemed that, life yet lingered. Over come with horror-r-for he could not doubt: but that his mothers" worst fears had been realized—Hieliard knell there holding the man iu his arms, waiting until the murderer should have placed himself beyond pursuit. It seemed an hour to his excited fancy before he saw a light pass along the front of the house he had quit, and knew that Sir Uiehard had safely reached his chamber. With some bewildered intention of summoning aid he left the body, and made toward the town. As he stepped out on the path he heard voices, and presently some dozen men, one of whom held a horse, burst out upon him, nud, with sudden fury, seized and tlung him to the ground. At first the young man so rudely as sailed did uot comprehend his own dan ger. His mind, bent upon one hideous explanation of the crime, did not see another obvious one which had already occurred to the mind of the landlord of The Three Spaniards. "Heaven defend me!" cried Mr. Mog ford, scanning by the pale light of the rising moon the features of the mur dered man, "but it is Lord Bellasis1 Oh. yoti villain! Jem. bring hiiu here p'r'aps his lordship can recognize him!'' "It was not I!" cried ltichard Davine "My lord, say Then he stopped abruptly, anil being forced on his knees by his captors, remained staring at the dying man ill sudden and ghastly fear Those men in whom emotion has tlu effect of quickening circulation of the blood, reason rapidly in moments ol da tiger: and in that terrible instant, when his eyes met those of Lord Bella sis, Uiehard Devine had summed up the chances of his future fortune, and realized to the full his personal peril. The runaway horse had given the alarm. The drinkers at The Spaniards Inn had started to search the Heath, and had discovered a fellow in rough costume, whose person was unknown to them, hastily quitting a spot, where, beside a rifled pocketbook anil a blood-stained whip, lay a dying man. The web of circumstantial evidence had enmeshed him. All hour ago es cape would have been easy. lie would have had but to cry, "I am the son of Sir Uiehard Devine. Come with me to yonder house and I will prove to you that I have just quit it." to place his innocence beyond immediate question. That course of action was impossible now. Knowing Sir Uiehard as he did, and believing, moreover, that in his rag ing passion the old man had himself met and murdered Lord I'ellasis. he saw himself iu a position which would com pel him to sacrifice himself. He knelt, stupefied, unable to speak or iimvc. "Come," cried ?dogford. again "say. my lord, is this the villain?" Lord Bellasis rallied his failing senses, his glazing eyes stared into his son's 1'aeo with a horrible eagerness: he shook his head, raised a feeble arm as though to point elsewhere, and fell back dead. "If you didn't murder him. you rob bed liiin," growled Mogford. "and you shall sleep at Bow street to-night. Tom. run on to meet the patrol, and tell him to leave word at the (bite-house that i'vo a passenger for the coach! Bring iiim on, Jack! What is voitr name, eh?" He repeated the rough question twice before his prisoner answered, but: at length Uiehard Devine raised a pale Tace which stern resolution had already hardened into defiant manhood, and said, "Dawes—Unfits Dawes." Ilis new life had begun already: for that night one Uufus Dawes, charged lvith murder and robbery, lay awake in prison, waiting for the fortune of the morrow. Two other men waited as eagerly. One, Mr. Lionel Crofton: the other, the horseman who had appointment with the murdered Lord Bellasis under the shadow of the fir-trees on llampstead Heath. As for Sir Uiehard Devine. he wailed for no one, for upon reaching his room he had fallen senseless iu a fit of apoplexy. (To bo continued.) GOOD COAL FOUND IN IDAHO. Ivxiicctcd Output to Supply the State and Kasterri Oregon. The iimoui!comeiit that coal of a very fair quality lias boon discovered in Thunder Mountain serves to revive tiic interest in the development of that newest of Idaho's resources, says tlio Boise Statesman. Discoveries of coal have been reported tit: various points (luring the past few years, but those who control the locations its a rule have been unable to develop the prop erties to a depth sutlicient to demon strate the value of their holdings from it commercial point of view. The sur face has been scratched enough to in dicate the existence of bodies of coal, usually of doubtful bituminous value, still giving moderate satisfaction in the limited local uses to which the product has been put. The coal found in Tnumler Mountain is said to have increased in quality and quantify with depth, having been de veloped about fifty feet. Tests are claimed to show 10 per cent tixed car bon and less than S per cent ash. It bits been used for bhicksinithing there and is said to give entire satisfaction. If these claims are borne out and if the properties continue to improve with development, the discovery will consli tute another highly important factor in the future of that section. In Lemhi County the coal situation is most encouraging. Tt has passed the experimental stage, having been de veloped to a point where its superiority its ii fuel for general purposes has been clearly demonstrated and the supply shown to be practically inex haustible gauged by the present and prospective demand. The l'ollnrd mines there have been opened up sys tematically and arc yielding a large production. Teams are hauling from the mines continuously, the coal sell ing for S'l.oO a ton. and. according to the Salmon Herald, the consumers be ing well safistied. The fuel problem has developed into such a serious one in this State that the coal developments will arouse the liveliest interest. It is only a matter of :i short time until the Lemhi coal deposits, and others, too. will be reached by a railroad. This will stim ulate development that it is expected will eventuate in the opening up of vast deposits from which the greater portion of western Idaho and eastern Oregon will be supplied at prices far below those exacted at the present time. Made Hint Jump. "That old plug moves pesky fast these days, Hiram. How did you break him of the habit of stopping still in the road?" "Why, I learned to make a noise like an automobile and every time ho slackens I go 'toot-toot' and "'chug chug' and he starts off like a colt." Be self-confident, but not conceited. The receipt of "black hand'' letters by members of the House has almost caused nervous prostration among some of them. The "black hand" warnings began to come a few days ago, when several members received postiil cards on which there was a drawing of a black hand. Beneath the hand was the warning: "Oaty four days more." Members began to ransack their brains in an effort to think of what act they had committed to gain the enmity of the "black hand.'' Two days after the receipt of the first warning a second came with the same black bauds and the ominous words, "you have only two days more." This was followed the next day with a postiil with the inscrip tion "you have one day more." These repeated warnings caused consider able i.lariu until to-day when postiil cards were received inscribed in red ink: "Xo more black hands us-j Blank soap." .Members of Congress believe this particular method of ad vertising should be abolished by law.

Mr. Shouts siiid when he re ceived Mr. Stevens' message he called in Mr. Markel and told him other ar rangements would have to be made. "Mr. Stevens said the men could be fed on the isthmus for :t(» cents a day." declared V-#. Shouts. "Mr. Markel said that he could feed them for *.() cents if permitted to reduce the food to the quality given the laborers under Mr. Stevens' plan." The possibility of President Uoose velt's becoming the Republican candi date for ii third term has been again widely discussed, following the state ment made by Jacob lliis. the inti mate friend of the President. "I£ duty demanded IJoosevelt to continue this fight, he would do it. 1 know he does not want to become a candidate for another term, but at the bottom of his heart he believes in the people atul will tight for them." In many sections Uepublican leaders have come forward with pledges of support and the pros and cons of the question have been on every tongue in political circles. In the face of all this the President hits not deemed it: necessary to add anything to the detinite volun tary statement made the day after lie wits elected that he would neither seek nor .accept a third-term nomina tion. An embarrassing breach of rules re sulted when Senator Warren of Wyo juing escorted President Uoosevolt's two sisters, Mrs. Cowles and Mrs. Iiobiuson, and two gentlemen into the private lobby just back of the liall of the house during the session the other day. This lobby is so sacred ly reserved for members that the rules forbid the Speaker to entertain a motion to admit others. Assistant Doorkeeper Kennedy, with apologies, escorted them hurriedly beyond the dead line and to it place in the gallery reserved for the President and his friends. The reforms proposed by the Keep commission for the conduct of the government printing olliee have been approved in the main by presidential orders. Each department is to ap point ii committee on printing to see that unnecessary matter is excluded from all reports. The commission iinds that the printing bill is $0,000, IKtO a year and that the unit cost of work is ioo high. Iu considering the deficiency bill, hb.a House decided that the oiglit-hour iaw for work on the Panama Canal should not be abrogated. It was also determined that the Canal Commis sioners should not receive compensa tion additional to their salaries as commissioners. urious amendments proposed by the minority were de feated. 'yij'i, 'A Secretary Bonapare lias ordered the dismissal of about 1,000 men at navy yards and stations because the item of .$1,000,0(10 to cover the cost of re pairs on ships had not been included /n the deficiency bill now before Con icress, J. Senator Burton of Kansas, who liad remained away front the Senate from the time of his indictment nearly two years ago, complied with the techni cal requirement in order to secure the 1.000 due Senators from mileage by stepping within the chamber for a moment from the cloakroom the other day. thus enabling the journal clerk to certify that the Kansas Senator h.id been present. The amount for mileage is $1,000, which Mr, Burton afterward drew. Do You Want to Know What You Swallow? There is a growing sentiment In this country in favor of medicines of knows composition.

Prices fop llaKcrflie*. Butterfly collectors are seldom able to estimate with any confidence the value of their collections, since the prices for specimens so constantly vary. A case in point is that of the blue butterfly of Brazil, specimens of which were originally sold for from $50 to $75. Xot long ago some col lectors who supplied the London mar ket ran into a perfect swarm of these butterflies and shipped to England1 such quantities that better specimens than the original insects are sold for $1 each. It not infrequently happens that two or three specimens of a cer tain family are discovered by col lectors, who, encouraged by the high prices received for their finds, are tempted to prosecute their search for this particular variety without result for several years. Suddenly they or some other collector finds the insects' grown plentiful, and the cherished varieties of the cabinet become among the commonest specimens. WILD WITH ITCHING HUMOR.
