And this last move was
Changs tho wholo course of bis lifo.

discoveries, and make disclosures later.
Next morning ho and Percy Lovel
started over to soo Mrs. Dolaro. She
met them at the door and said: "Oh I
Mr. Wilcox, I'm ho glad you have come.
Something' of jrreat importance has
; They walked into the boa.se and into
rthe library, where Mr. Wilcox wmw
,tonlabed to soo one of tho workmen
!from the collars neated. The door wm

."has brought something here which
will probably prove beyond a doubt who
'it was that killed my dear husband.
! Yesterday one of. this man's boys was
bathing in the stream which flows at
'the foot of tho bill yonder," said the
jlady, pointing from the window as she
Upoke, "and, in dlring to pick objects
jirorn the raud in the bottom of the
jriver, found this weapon."
Hero Mrs. frelaro produoed an ivory
haadled stiletto upon tho handle of
(which was carved the initials "L. V."
J "Great guna," exclaimed Wilcox,
S"we shall prove that snake guilty soon
jr than I expected."
j Then a long conversation ensued and
the workman was asked to repeat bis
j Story to Wilcox, and so much engrossed

fthat in the excitement of .the hour it

But Mr. Wilcox soon made amends
for bis forgetfulness and told Mrs.

'almost enthusiastic over his prospective
They discussed how every thing
isbould bo arranged. On tho morrow
,thoy proposed to jro to the lawyer at
;Santa Rosa, and inform him of the new
Ihey supposed naturally that Velas
jucx had littlo idea of bis crime being
.discovered bo soon, if ever, and that
'ho was probably oa his way Cast. So
they did not raise a huo and cry atonco
but decided that It would bo far wiser,
and kVc prudent, to bo sura they wero
righbsfore going ahead.
-hb next day they all started for
Uosa, tho county seat, where the
itrial was to be held, and Wilcox was at
jlastfullof hope that tho unfortunate
Anton would soon be released.
A consultation was held with the law
yers, but they did not deem it wiso to
take steps to secure a warrant for
Velasquez's arrest; they advised wait
ing until after the trial of Anton Key
man. The trial was set for ton days later,
and at that time nearly every adult in
habitant of San Paola was at Santa Rosa.
Tho witnesses who had appeared be
loro tho coroner and the grand jury
were again called, and during the first
(part of the proceeding's there was only
a repetition of tho former scenes at the
inquest, no new disclosures being made.
But there was a tumult of excitement
wtien Percy Beaufort Lovel had been
called and his testimony taken.
What bo said furnished unexpected
development to all except the princi
pals in the drama, and created not" only
kscrprise but intense indignation among
Then the boy who had found the 6ti
Uetto was called and examined. The
weapon was produced and tho servants
of tho Delaro household were called to
rtestify that they had seen the weapon
Several times lying cn the bureau in
Mr. Velasquez's room.
Other witnesses followed, who epoke
lin glowing terms of Anton's character,
land then tho judge commenced to
charge) tho jury. Ho told them that tho
.guilt could not be justly transferred
from le shoulders of tho prisoner to
:those of Velasquez on the evidence given
land made prolonged reference to An
ion's angry talk with Delaro and the
'fact that ho followed the tnnrdered
iman out of tho cellars.
' The judge was just suc-jresting tho
:reasonablenes and probability of Rey
jman having committed tho foul deed,
when Percy Lovel, who had been care
'fully scrutinizing the stiletto, inier
rupted. The, youn fellow had noticed that
I "tho point of tho weapon was broken.
Only an extremely small fragment of
the point was missing, bnt it was largo
.enough to bo noticed. lie banded the
dagger to tho lawyer for the defense and
drew his attention to the fact. Tne
lawyer unatrslMd its purport m a mo
'ment. In a rather rudo and hasty manner,
Ibut such as the occasion demanded, ho
called upon the judge to desist in his
isumming up, and asked that further
(evidence bo taken.
Tho judge, who was strictly isnpar-
tiaL remarked that in such a case it was
hardly possible that so blunt a point

body as deeply as Delaro's wound, but
that this was a matter worthy the ut
most consideration of the jury.
'Yes. indeed it is, your honor," said
the lawyer for tho defense; "but per
jmit me to suggest that measures be at
occe taken to find tho point of this
weapon before this man Reyman i3 un
(jastly convicted. The most likely place
tip find. Hwuld ba in Pelaro's body, and
intra, tnen tne re win no oe macn
doubt as to the identity of the aotaal
"It seems hardly credible that It could
bave broken off inside of the body,"
suggested the judge; "we can consult
somo professional advice on the mat
ter." "Then the best man to (ret that ad
vice from is Joel Wilcox," was the law
"Let Joel Wilcox be called to the
stand." said the judge to tho usher.
Upon being sworn Wilcox gave his
opinion, as an old blacksmith and as a,
man who bad worked all kinds of both
iron and stool, hot or cold. Said be:
"II tho . point of tho stiletto bad not
been properly tomprcd. it is highly
probable that in striking against a bone
in a man's tiody it would break off."
Then tho body shall bo exhumed
and tho pico of steel Bought for," said
the judge. Whereupon tho court ad
journed until the following day.
That same afternoon tho body of
Delaro was exhumed and sure enough,
the piece of steel was found sticking
to the bottom of tho left shoulder blade.
Tho doctor produced the fragment
next day in court, and it was found to
fit exactly to the stiletto.
Then tho judgo completed bis charge,
but on vastly different lines, the conse
quence being that Anton was discharged
without the jury once having to leave
The crowd cheered him as be went
oat and one of tho first men who met
bira was Joel Wilcox.
"Anton." be said, "it was I that
bought the Posada vineyards, and I
hopo, my boy, you will go back to your
old place and manage it for me."
It was a light-hearted and yet a sad
party that went back to San Paola that
night, for few of them bad yet forgot
ten the memory of their lost friend.
And Wilcox, kind old fellow that he
was. went that night to try and console
the desolate widow, and informed her
that ho had arranged to render all pos
sible assistance to the detectives in
captur 'ig the murderer.
At the conclusion of the interview, at
which Percy Lovel was present, they
all decided to leave San Paola at once
Mrs. Delaro to go to ber friends and
Wilcox and his young aide to follow In
the wake of the guilty man.
"If Mr. Wilcox and Percy are not back
here in a week we might as well return
to Hew York. It is getting late in the
season, and really, mamma, I can not
endure much more of the noise and bus
tle of this hoteL"
"Have a little patience, child; we may
bear from them any day."
"Oh! mamma, if you could only know
bow tired I am of being incessantly fol-
feS$ fall ; j ! ' i( ,

lowed and shadowed by suitors of all
sorts and conditions and ot being mado
love to by old men and smooth-faced
youths, you would say go, at once,
and let Mr. Wilcox follow us."
"No, my child. It would never do to
go until we hear from them. There is
no alternative but to wait."
"Very well, just as you say, mamma;
but I am very anxious for a change."
Tho last speaker was Armida Delaro.
Eleven years bad elapsed since sho left
the vineyards and blue skies of the Pa
cific slops and now she wa grown into
one of the most perfect of God's creat
ures a beautiful woman. Tho rich
Southern blood which she had inherited
from her parents tinged her cheeks
with a su'vd;:ed flush of perfect health.
She wiiii ;s tll, graceful girl, and a per
fect typr c;f Southern beauty; though a
decided brunette sho was not so dark as
to be distinguished for iu With her
beauty nh:j pcnieJ t-o have inherited
also tho sweet disposit ion of her mother,
together with the irank: f'pen-hearted-ness
of her father.
Mother and daughter wove sitting in
a private parlor forming one of their
suite of roo.ni at tho West End Hotel,
Long ISranch, where they had been
spending the summer. It was only dur
ing the last two years tht Mrs. Delaro
had enjoyed much of her daughter's so
ciety, for they had necessarily been
thrown very much apart owing to the
mother's set determination' to personal
ly assist in th? search for her husband's
This employment, which had kept
her traveling all the time, combined
with thu fact that Armida had been at
tending school at a convent near to
Paris giive them very little opportunity
of being together.
Mrs. IXilaro really showed very little
sign of the struggles she had undergone
in her features, though a close observe
might have noticed a settled and de
termined expression which told with
out the aid of words that she was a
woman living with a purpose.
And indeed 'her purpose was stern as
ever, for as she sat on this bright Sep
tember morning talking' to her daugh
ter, her thoughts were far. away with
her two staunch friends, Joel Wilcox
and Percy Lovel, who had left her two
weeks before to follow up a clow at New
j Orleans. They had only written twice
; sinco their departure, and even then
' bad given no particulars, so that sho
was anxious and longed to know
whether or not they wero meeting with
; OT ten and of ten bad she waited like
this before, but ber interest had nover
fiagRad, nor bor desire for vengeance
become less keen. When in conversa
tion with bor two loyal friends she al
ways spoke hopefully of the ultimate
success of her life work and bad fre
quently intimated that she fully ex
pected to see Leon Velasquez face to
faoe before death should call ber to meet
Of one thing sho had been scrupu
lously careful, and that was to have no
word regarding ber husband's cruel
death uttered in tho bearing of ber
daughter. Still, Armida know of the
manner in which ber father had come to
bis sad end.
Hut to the girl tho tragic affair bad
never been so real and terrible as to her
mother, and in recent years, as tho mat
ter was never referred to in her pres
ence, the whole story, which so much
affected ber entire life, was buried in
the oblivion of shadowy youthful mem
ories. The conversation at the opening of
this chapter might lead one to imagine
that Armida was of a rather peevish
temperament, but such was not the case.
Sho had just cause to complain, and was
literally bored to death. Sho bad been
sought after by every unmarried wearer
of pantaloons and suspenders during
ber stay at the Branch. Races one day,
a gardon party the next, then a ball,
followed by yachting excursions and a
hundred other inventions for killing
I At all such sooiety events, he pres
ence was looked upon as a positive
necessity, until at last the poor girl
. was almost tired out. No wonder then
I that she was anxious to get away from
' it all and seek that rest in New York
j which was absolutely im possible-at a
place like Long Branch.
Just as the concluding words fell from
Armlda's lips, there was a knock on the
door, which was answered by the maid,
who took a card from the bell-boy and
handed it to her young mistress.
Armida glanced at it languidly and
then turning to ber mother with a pite
ous gaze on her sweet face said:
"Who is here now, my dear?"
"That horrid, vulgar Mr. Blodgor,
who is so fond of saying: 'Ladies, Me.
Stephen Blodger at your service.'"
Hare Armida rose from ber reclining
posture and gave an imitation of that
gentleman's uniquo style ef introducing
himself; then turning to ber maid she
"Tell the boy to show him up"
As tho boy went away, something
like a gurgling titter sounded as if com
ing from that progressive youth. In
less than a minute the caller was at the
parlor door, which showed that he must
have waited either outside, or very
near the elevator, for be certainly did
not bave time to come from the office.
The visitor was a man weighing some
thing in tho neighborhood of two hun
dred pounds, and had a face as round
and as red ' as tho settin? sun on a
winter's day. Step by step he had
risen from tho lowest ranks, until be
bad finally attained the mighty distinc
tion of boinga millionaire, eaid millions
having been acquired by the practical
application of tho scienco of turning
tallow into soap.
In his early days ho had known Mr.
Wilcox intimately, and the acquaintance
had recently been renewed with pleas
ure on both sides. Consequently Mrs.
Delaro and her daughter felt it incum
bent upon them to entertain the gentle
man when he called.
Since converting his soap-boiling busi
ness into i stock company and then Bell
ing out his interest at an enormous
profit, Mr. Blodger had found a great
doal of time on his hands. Ilis wifo had
long sinco passed to the "better land,"
and as he had no relatives to hamper
him he devoted his time pretty much to
his own company and that of his fifteen
year old boy, who was, at least physical
ly, following in his father's footsteps
bidding fair to outrival the celebrity of
tho Fat Boy in Pickwick.
The elder Blodger had, like many of
his ilk, in these his later days of wealth
and leisure, turned h:'s attention to
book&gmd study in the fond hopo that
he might pass for an educated man in
that society toward which his inclina
tions and ambition now led him. The
result was that smattering of superficial
knowledge which is soexceedingly dan
gerous; for in his unguided search in
the higher realms of knowledge Stephen
Blodger had not deemed it necessary to
improve his grammar, and as a conse
quence his conversation oft-times em
bodied a strange conglomeration of tho
classic sciences and fine arts, dished up
in miserably bad English.
Recently this genius had developed
into a poet and he was never seen out
without his scrap book under bis arm,
in which he had pasted his own efforts,
written on fcol-icap in a large, round
hand, together with numerous choico
pieces which he had clipped at odd
times from the columns of the Sunday
papers. As this worthy individual en
tered the parlor he 1 to wed low and said
with a broad smile, precisely as Armida
had mimicked him a momentbefore:
"Good morning ladies; Mr. Stephen
Blodger at your service."
The two ladies returned the greeting
and the usual every day questions re
garding health and tho weather having
followed, Mr. Blodger drew from tho
side pocket of a loud-patterned tourist

jacket which he wore, a tablet, and
said: "Ladies, I have been sitting ia
quiet seclusion upon tho sands shadewed

thoughts. As my oyos wandored acrom

took possession of my soul and I was at
ouoe inspired to write an ode to the At

Atlantic, broad and vast expanse
Of aoethlng, boiling f iim-"
Here Armida interrupted tho roader.

Mr. Blodger, because you bave come
horo to court criticism, but do you not
think that 'Soothing, boiling foam' re

"That may be, but wo can modify
word painting. Miss Armida. This is
only in the rough." Then bo continued:
" Upon wboic bosom whl'.e-wtixgod ships.

"There," said Mr. Blodger. as bo com
pleted tho first stanza. "I think that
will work up into Homething very neat, j
not to say beautiful.
"Very." said Armida and her mother
in unison; but wbotber they were in
irnost or not would havo been difficult
to dotormlne from the mamner In which
they gave their assent.
"You did not know that I am also a
poet, did you?" said Armida to Mr.
"Indeed I did not But I am really
not surprised that wo oan add poetry to
your many accomplishments." be gal
lantly, if awkwardly, responded.
"Well, I can not exactly bo called a
poet," was the reply, "but I occasion
ally indulge in clothing my thoughts in
rhyme. Sometimes I really do feel sen
timentally poetical, and again at other
times I am afraid my crude efforts are
the result of indigestion or something
equally unpleasant. However, I write
my verses and leave my friends to judge
of the propelling power."
Armida passed into the adjoining room
and soon returned with a scrap of paper
on which were penciled a few lines.
"Here," said she, "is something I jot
ted down last night after you left.
Shall I read it to you?" And somehow
there was a merry twinkle in the girl's
eye, which passed unnoticed, however,
by the sedate Blodger. i
"I shall be delighted to hear you do
so," was Mr. Blodger's response. So in
a clear, sweet voice, in which the slight
ly mocking tenes could only have been
discerned by far sharper ears than
Blodger possessed, Armida read, as fol
lows: I havo lovers and beaux half a dozen.
Who poster mo day by day
Not to mention a cv, haadsorae coosln.
Who ia always, alaulc 1 iu my vray.
Eut they bore me so much with their chatter
And worry me half to death.
Till it's really a wonderful matter
I possess e'en one spaam of breath.
For, yoa know, your young, highly-dressed
Is Dot my ideal of a man
(Although I confe3s he comes handy
When we wish some liinu semen t to plan);
fancy a man who Is portly.
Whose hair has a tinjra of pray,
Who makes his bow slowly und courtly.
Gives his arm with "Allow me, I jray."
I man who can never bo twitted
With bying too fresh or too green;
A man who need hardly bo pitied
For fewness of yuars he has seen;
A man who can love like a father
As well as a heart-broken swain.
With experience that tells him 'tis rather
Unwise to "stay out in the rain."
When the soft light of evening is fading
And hushed ia The noisy earth.
When darkness old ocean is shading
And fled are the voices of mirth;
When the stilled hum of nature is soothing
And nuusht through the silence sounds,
I Ions for my lover of tif ty years.
With his solid two humlrod poands.
During the reading Mr. Blodger sat
enraptured, and as sho finished he mur
mured: "Beo-autiful." Then, continuing in
a louder key: "Why don't you send that
to Harpers', Miss Delaro; they would
jump at the chance to publish it. The
sentiment is admirable and magnificent
"Oli, I'm not at all anxious to rush
into print," was the reply.
"On the contrary, you ought to be de
lighted to give sucb literary treasures
to the world," responded the old wid
ower, who secretly felt that Armida had
taken a graceful way of paying him a
compliment, never dreaming that he
was the butt of a joke in rhyme.
"Tho world would be all tho better
of if not oppressed with such effusions,"
bho quietly replied.
During this timo Mrs. Dslaro had re
mained in passive siience, but she now
spoke up quietly and asked: "Do you ever
havo your poems published, Mr. Blod
ger?" "Well, I have sent many in for con
sideration, but I fear that they do not
get the attention which they merit and
are cast aside," he answered.
"That appears strange. Surely your
namo in itself should command a fair
and impartial examination of your lit
"Yes, that may be; but you see. mum

business agin), I'm only known as a

crs print it with a name like Blodger at j
the foot'' I
"That is a pity. I fear the reading
public in that way is the loser of some
rare gems," said Mrs. Delaro.
"True enough, but there is no help
for it," 6adly replied the poet. Then he
continued: "Somo day I will publish
my collection at my own expense, and
so give it to the world."
o With these words ho picked up his
hat and bade tho ladies a courteous
As soon as he had departed Armida
burst into a fit of immoderate laughter.
"Ilis earnestness is too much for me; 1
can not help lauching. Pardon me,
mamma," sho said.
. Mr. Blodgor had not been gone very
long when tho bell-boy again came to
the door and banded in a telegram for
Mrs. Delaro. She opened It eagerly

"What 1 ft, mamma?" anxiously aaked
"It la from Mr. Wilcox, my dear. lie
