(Costlnsed from last week.)
We reached Alicante the 15th If arch,
after a long, tedious voyage. During
this time I had ample opportunity for
observing Moll, but with little relief to
taj gloomy apprehensions. She rarely
quitted her father's aide, being now as
sympathetic and considerate of him in
bis sufferings as before she had been
thoughtless and indifferent She had
erer a gentle word of encouragement
for him ; she was ever kind and patient
Only once her spirit seemed to weary.
That was when we had been beating
bout in the bay of Cadis four days for
favorable gale to take us through the
traits. We were on deck, she and I, the
sails flapping the masts idly above our
- "Oh," says she, laying her hand on
my shoulder and her wasted cheek
against my arm, "oh, that it were all
She was sweeter with me than ever
she had been before ; it seemed as if
the love bred in her heart by marriage
must expend itself upon some one. But
though this tenderness endeared her
more to me it saddened me, and I would
have had her at her tricks once more,
making mouths at my expense. For I
began to see that our happiness comes
from within and not from without, and
so fell despairing that ever this poor
stricken heart of hers would be healed,
which set me a-repenting more sincere
ly than ever the mischief I had helped
to do her
As no such entertainments were to be
had, this being the season of Lent,
which is observed very striotly in these
parts, Dawson contented himself with
taking Moll out to visit the shops, and
here he speedily purchased a pair of
clappers for her, a tambour for himself
and a guitar for me, though we were
difficult to please, for no dappers pleased
Moll as those she had first bought, and
it did seem to me that I could strike no
notes out of any instrument but they
had a sad, mournful tone. "
Then nothing would satisfy him but
to go from one draper's to another, seek
ing a short skirt, a waistcloth and a
round hat to Moll's taste, which ended
to his disappointment, for she could find
none like the old.
"Why, don't you like this?" he would
say, holding up a gown. "To my eyes
'tis the very image of t'other, only
And she, demurring, whispers, "To
morrow, dear, tomorrow," with plain
tive entreaty for delay in her wistful
Disheartened, but not yet at the end
of his resources, her father at last pro
posed that she should take a turn
through the town alone and choose for
herself. "For," says he, "I believe we
do rather hinder than help you with our
advice in such matters. "
After a moment's reflection Moll
agreed to this, and, saying she , would
meet us at the posada for supper, left
us, and walked briskly back the way we
When she was gone, Dawson had nev?
er a word to say, nor I either, for de jeo
tion ; yet, had I been questioned, I could
have found ho better reason for my de
spondency than that I felt 'twas all a
mistake coming here for happiness.
Strolling aimlessly through the nar
row back ways, we came presently to
the market that stands against the port
And here, almost at the first step, Daw
son catches my arm and nods toward
the opposite side of the market place.
Some Moors were seated there in their
white clothes, with bundles of young
palm leaves, plaited up in various forms
of crowns, crosses and the like which
the people of tliis country do carry to
church to be blessed on Palm Sunday
and these Moors I knew came from
Elche, because palms grow nowhere else
in such abundance.
"Yes," says I, thinking 'twas this
queer merchandise he would point out,
"I noticed these Moors and their ware
when we passed here a little while back
"Don't you see her there now at the
corner?" asks he.
Then, to my surprise, I perceived
Moll in very earnest conversation with
two Moors, who had at first screened
her from my sight
"Come away," continues he. "She
left us to go back and speak to them
and would not have us know. "
Why should she be secret about this
trifling matter? I asked myself. 'Twos
quite natural that if she recognized in
these Moors some old acquaintance of
Elcheshe should desire to speak them.
We stole away to the port, and seat
ing ourselves upon some timber there
we looked upon the sea nigh upon half
an hour without saying a word. Then,
turning to me, Dawson says : "Unless
she speak to us upon this matter, Kit,
we will say naught to her. But if she
gay nothing I shall take it for a sign
her heart is set upon going back to
Elche, and she would have it a secret
that we may not be disheartened in our
"That is likely enough," says I, not
a little surprised by his reasoning. But
love sharpens a man's wit, be it never
so dull , .
About 8. the next morning I was
awoke by the door bursting suddenly
open, and starting up in my bed I see
''Dawson .vat my side, shaking in everv

umo ana nis eyes wiae witn terror.
"Moll's gone!" cries he and falls
"Gone!" says L springing out of bed.
" Ti not possible."
"She has not lain in her bed, and one
saw her go forth last night as the doors
were closing, knowing her for a foreign
er by her hood. "Come with me," adds
he, laying his hand on a chair for sup
port "I dare not go alone. "
"Aye, I'll go with ye, Jack, but
"Down to the sea, " says be hoarsely.
I stopped in the midst of dressing,
overcome by this fearful hint, for,
knowing Moll's strong nature, the
thought had never occurred to me that
she might do away with herself. Yet
now reflecting on her strange manner of
late, especially her parting with us
overnight, it soemod not so impossible
neither. For here, seeing the folly of
our coming hither, desponding of any
happiness in the future, was the speed
lest way of ending a life that was bur
densome to herself and a constant sor
row to us. jn ay, witn ner notions or
poetic justice drawn from plays, she
may have regarded this as the only
atonement she could make her husband,
the only means of giving him back free
dom to make a happier choice in mar
riage. With these conclusions taking
shape I shuffled on my clothes, and
then, with shaking fear, we two, hang
ing to each other's arms for strength,
made our way through the crooked
streets to the sea, and then, seeing a
group of men and women gathered at
the water's edge some little distance
from us, we dared not go farther, con
ceiving 'twas a dead body they were re
garding. But 'twas only a company of
fishers examining their haul of fishes,
as we presently perceived. So, some
what cheered, we cast our eyes to the
right and left, and, seeing nothing to
justify our fears, advanced along the
coast to the very end, where it juts out
into the sea, with great stones around
to break the surf.
Here, then, with deadly apprehen
sions, we peered among the rocks, hold
ing our breath, clutching tight hold of
one another by the hand, in terror of
finding that we so eagerly searched a
hood, a woman's skirt clinging to the
stones, a stiffened hand thrust up from
the lapping waters. Never may I forget
the sickening horror of the moment
when, creeping out amid the rocks, Daw
son twitohes my hand and points down
through the clear water to something
lying white at the bottom. It looked for
all the world like a dead face, colored a
greenish white by the water, but pres
ently we saw, by one end curling over
in the swell of a wave, that 'twas only
a rag of paper.
Then I persuaded Dawson to give up
this horrid search and return to our po
sada, when, if we found not Moll, we
might more justly conclude she had gone
to Elche than put an end to her life,
and though we could learn nothing of
her at our inn more than Dawson had
already told me, yet our hopes were
strengthened in the probability of find
ing her at Elche by recollecting her
earnest, secret conversation with the
Moors, who might certainly have re
turned to Elche in the night, they pre
ferring that time for their journey, as
we knew. So, having hastily snatched
a repast, while our landlord was pro
curing mules for our use, we set off
across the plain, doing our best to cheer
each other on the way. But I confess
one thing damped my spirits exceeding
ly, and that was, having no hint from
Moll the night before of this project,
which then must have been fully ma
tured -in her mind, nor any written
word of explanation and encouragement
For, thinks I, she being no longer a gid
dy, heedless child, ready to play any
prank without regard to the conse
quences, but a very considerate, remorse
ful woman, would not put us to this
anxiety without cause. Had she resolved
to go to her friends at Elche, she would,
at least, have comforted us with the
hope of meeting her again, whereas
this utter silence did point to a knowl
edge on her part that we woro sundorod
forever, and that she could give us no
hope but such as we might glean from
Arriving at Elche, we made straight
for the house of the merchant, Sidi ben
Ahmed, with whose family Moll had
been so intimate previously. Here we
were met by Sidi himself, who, after
laying his fingers across his lips and
setting his hand upon his heart, in to
ken of recognition and respect, asked us
very civilly our business, though with
out any show of surprise at seeing us.
But these Moors do pride themselves
upon a stoic behavior at all times and
make it a point to conceal any emotion
they may feel, so that men never can
truly judge of their feelings.
It occurred to us that if Moll were
still living she had either returned to
England or gone to Don Sanchez at
Toledo, whose wise counsels she had
tver held in high respect The former
supposition seemed to me the .better
grounded, for it was easy to understand
how, yearning for him night and day,
she should at length abandon every scru
ple and throw herself at his feet, reck
less of what might follow.
'Twas not inconsistent with her im
pulsive character, and that more rea
sonable view of life she had gained by
experience and the long reflections on
her voyage hither. And that which sup-
norUd v belief still more was that

that a carrier wns to wt out for Tolodo

of our loss and begging him to let us

know, as speedily as possible, if he had
heard aught of MolL And in this letter
I inclosed a second addressed to Mr.
Godwin, having the same purport,
which I prayed Don Sanchez to send on
with all expedition, if Moll were not
And now, having dispatched these
letters, we had nothing to do but to
await a reply, which, at the earliest,
we oould not expect to get before the
end of the week, Toledo being a good
80 English leagues distant
We waited in Alicante four days
more, making seven in all from the day
we lost Moll, and then, the suspense
and torment of inactivity becoming in
supportable, we set out again for Elche,
the conviction growing strong upon us,
with reflection, that we had little to
hope from Don Sanchez.
Well, then, we went about our search
in Elohe with all the slyness possible,
prying here and there like a couple of
thieves a-robbing a henroost and put
ting cross questions to every simple fel
low we met the best we could with
our small knowledge of their tongue
but all to no purpose, and so another
day was wasted. We lay under the
palms that night, and in the morning
began our perquisition afresh, now
hunting up and down the narrow lanes
and alleys of the town, as we had
sooured those of Alicante, in vain, un
til, persuaded of the uselessness of our
quest, we agreed to return to Alicante,
in the hope of finding there a letter from
Don Sanchez. But (not to leave a single
stone unturned) we settled we would
call onoe again on Sidi ben Ahmed and
ask if he had any tidings to give us,
but openly feeling we were no match
for him at subterfuge. So to his house
we went, where we were received very
graciously by the old merchant, who,
chiding us gently for being in the
neighborhood a whole day without giv
ing him a call, prayed us to enter his
unworthy parlor, adding that we should
find thore a friend who would be very
pleased to see us.
At this my heart bounded to such an
extent that I could utter never a word
(nor could Dawson either), for I expect
ed nothing less than to find this friend
was our dear Moll, and so, silent and
shaking with feverish anticipation, we
followed him down the tiled passage
and round the inner garden of his house
by the arcade till we reached a door
way, and there, lifting aside the heavy
"hangings, he bade us enter. We pushed
by him in rude haste, and then stopped
of a sudden, in blank amazement, for,
in place of Moll, whom we fully thought
to find, we discovered only Don San
chez, sitting on some pillows and smok
ing a Moorish chibouk.
"My daughter my Moll !" cries Daw
son in despair. "Where is she?"
"By this time," replies Don Sanchez,
rising, "your daughter should be in
" CHAPTER XXXV.
'Barbary Barbary 1" gasps Dawson,
thunderstruck by this discovery. "My
Moil in Barbary?"
'She sailed three days ago," says the
don, laying down his pipe and rising.
Dawson regards him for a moment or
two in a kind of stupor, and then, his
ideas taking definite shape, he cries in
a fury of passion and clinching his fists:
' Spanish dog ! You shall answer this.
And you," turning in fury upon Sidi,
you I know your cursed traffic
you've sold her to the Turk !"
'Tell me, senor," says I, "who hath
kidnaped poor Moll?"
"Nobody. She went of her free will,
knowing full well the risk she ran the
possible end of her noble adventure
against the dissuasions and the prayers
of all her friends here. She stood in the
doorway there and saw you across the
garden when you first came to seek her
saw you, her father, distracted with
grief and fear, and she suffered you to
go away. As you may know, nothing is
more sacred to a Moor than the laws of
hospitality, and by those laws Sidi was
bound to respect the wishes of one who
had claimed his protection. He could
not betray her secret, but he and his
family did their utmost to persuade her
from her purpose. While you were yet
in the town they implored her to let
them call you back, and she refused.
Failing in their entreaties, they dis
patched a messenger to me. Alas 1 when
I arrived she was gone. She went with
a company of merchants bound for Al
giers, and all that her friends here could
do was to provide her with a servant
and letters which will insure her safe
conduct to Thadviir. "
"Butwhyhas she gone theje, senor?"
says I, having heard him in a maze of
wonderment to the end.

BRIGAND LEVIES TAXES.
Be Also Preserves the Peace end Pro
"Brigandage is still rampant In many
rural districts in Italy," said Dr.
Ravogli, the resident Italian consul to
a Cincinnati Enquirer reporter. "From
advices I receive occasionally I keep in
touch with home affairs and a letter
from a friend in Trieste contains a
reference to Tiburzi, one of the most
picturesque of these freebooters.
Tiburzi is about 48. At the beginning
of his career be was as bad as others
in the same vocation in life. In 1S72
he was caught, convicted of highway
robbery and murder, and sentenced to
imprisonment for life. He escaped in
1874 and took refuge in a wood, near
Viterbo. where he lived in security in
spite of the seventeen warrants and
a large reward for his arrest. The rea
son of this security is simple enough.
He was good to the poor any peasant
In need of help could always get a
gold coin from Tiburzi and he pun
ished traitors. Consequently the peas
ants were ready to assist him against
the police or government emissaries,
and those who would willingly have
given Information were afraid to do so.
After his escape Tiburzi altered his
method of gaining a living. He caused
it to be made known to all the well-
to-do people in the district that if they
paid him an annual contribution he -would
not interfere with them and
would protect them from molestation
by others. It was considered advisable
to agree and Tiburzi has been for years
in receipt of a large income, one man
alone paying him 150 a year. Crime
has considerably diminished in the dis
trict; the smaller fry dare not molest
Tiburzi's proteges, for he is still a good
shot with his English repeating rifle.
Tiburzi does what the government can
not do; he collects taxes without trouble
and he keeps down crime. It must not
be supposed that he hides in the woods
all day. He can walk about the whole
district without fear of capture and he
lives in good style. He goes to Rome
sometimes, presumably in disguise, and
has even been abroad. Will he ever be
arrested? Time alone will tell."
