I CHAPTER VIII.
HE CATCHES TUB OLD Blt.
At 4 o'clock the next aftoruoon the
CoOnian rode across the plain, roturn
ng from his search for the lost sheep.
Ho roile slowly, for he had boon in tho
saddlo since sunrise and was soniiv
what weary, and the heat of the after
noon made Lis horse sleepy as It picked
Its way slowly along the sandy road.
fSrory now and then a great red spider
would start out of tho "karroo" on one
side of tho path and nin across to the
other, but nothing else broke the still
Monotony. Presently, behind one of
tJift highest of the milk bushes that
dottod the roadside, the German caught
eight of a KafHr woman, seated there
evidently for such shadow as the milk
bush might afford from the sloping
fays f the sun. The German turned
the horse's head out of the road. It
vras not his way to pass a living crea
ture without a word of greeting. Com
ing nearer, he found it was no other
than the wiie of the absconding Kaffir
Lord. She had a baby tied on her back
ly a dirty strip of red blanket. An
other strip hardly larger was twisted
round her waist, for the rest of her
Mack body was nakod. She was a
sullen, ill looking woman, with lips
Wdeously protruding.
The German questioned her as to
how she came there. She muttered In
broken Dutch that she had been turned
away. ' Had she done evil? She shook
fcer head sullenly. Had she had ford
glvon her? She grunted a negative
and fanned the flies from her baby.
Telling the woman to remain where
eho was, he turned his horse's head to
die road and rode off at a furious pace.
"Hard hearted! Cruel! O my God!
Is this the way? Is this charity? Yes,
os. yes!" ejaculated the old man as he
rode on, but presently his anger be
gan to evaporate, his horse's pace
ulackened, and by the time he had
reached his own door he was ndding
and smiling.
Dismounting quickly, he went to the
great chest where his provisions wore
' kept. Here he got out a little meal, a
few mealies, a few roaster cakes.
These he tied up in three blue bandker
oliiefs, and, putting them into a sail
cloth bag, he strung them over his
shoulders. Thou he looked circum
spectly out nt the door, h was very
Iviil to be discovered in the ict of giv
ing It made him rod up . t!;- rtmf.i
of bis old grizzled hair. No o.n- was
about, however, so he rode oiT ngabi.
Before the milk bush sat the KafHr
woman still, like Hagar, he thought,
tfirust out by her mistress in the wil
derness to die. Telling her to loosen
the handkerchief from her head, he
loured into it the contents of his bag.
The woman tied it up la sullen silence.
. "You must try to get to the next
farm." said the German.
The woman shook her head. She
would sleep in the field.
The German reflected. Kafllr womeu
were accustomed to sleep in the open
air, but then the child was small, aiKl
after so hot a day the night might be
chilly. That she would creep back to
tho huts nt the homestead when the
darkness favored her the German's
sagacity did not make evident to hlin.
He took off the old brown salt and
, pepper coat and held It out to her. The
.woman received it In silence and laid it
across her knee. "With that they will
eleop warmly, not so bad. Ha. ha. ha!"
said the Gorman. And he rode home,
nodding his head In a manner that
would have made any other man dizzy.
"I wish he would not come back to
night." said Em, her face wet with
tears.
"It will lx just the same If he comes
twek tomorrow," said Lyndall.
The two girls sat on the step of tho
cabin waiting for the German's re
turn. Lyndall shaded her eyes with
her hand from the sunset light.
"There he comes." she said, "whis
tling. 'Ach Jerusalem du schone!' so
loud I can hear hhu here."
"Perhaps he has found the sheep."
"Found them!" said Lyndall. ' He
would whistle just so If he knew he
had to die tonight"
"You look at the sunset, eh. chick
ens?" the German said as he came up
at a smart canter. "Ah. yes. that Is
beautiful!" he added as he dismount-
!, pausing for a moment with his
hand on the saddle to look at the even
ing sky, where the sun shot up long
flaming streaks, between which and
the eye thin yellow clouds floated. "EI,
you weep?" said the German as the
girls ran up to him.
Before they had time to reply the
TOloe of Tant' Sannle was heard.
"You child of tho child of the child
of a Kaffir's dog, come here!"
The German looked up. ne thought

"Yon old vagabond of a praying Ger

Tant Sannle stood before the steps
of the kitchen. Upon them sat tho
lean Hottentot. Upon the highest
stood Bonaparte Blonklns, both hands
folded under the tails of his coat and
hii wyes fixed on the sunset sky.
The German dropped the saddle on
the ground.

The girls followed him. Em still
weeping, Lyndall with her face rather
w.Mte and her ey wide open.
"And I have the heart of a devil, did

Dutchwoman. "I could not drive the

would do it gladly, any of them, for a
bit of tobacco, for all your prayings
with them."
"I am bewildered, I am bewildered,"
said the German, standing before her
and raising his hand to his forehend.
"I I do not understand."
"Ask him, ask him!" cried Tant' San
nle, pointing to Bonaparte. "He knows.

fool! I know enough English for that
You bo here," shouted tho Dutchwo
man, "when the morning star rises,

left In your old body that is not bro

beggar! All your rags arc not worth
that they should be thrown out on to

"but. I will have them for my sheep!
Not one rotteu hoof of your okf mare
do you take with you. I will have her
all, all for my sheep that you have
lost, you godless thing!"
The Boer woman wiped the moisture
from her mouth with the palm of her
hand.
The German turned to Bonaparte,
who still stood on the step absorbed in
the beauty of the Himaet.
"Do not address me, do not approach
me, iost man." said Bonaparte, not
moving his eye nor lowering his ch.n.
"There Is a crime from which all na
ture revolts; there Is a crime whose
name is loathsome to the human ear.
That crime Is yours; that crime is in
gratitude. This woman has been your
benefactress. On her farm you have
lived, after her sheep you have looked,
into her house you have been allowed
to enter and holt! Divine service, an
honor of which you were never "worthy,
nun now nave you rewarded !ior.'
Easily, basely, basely!"
"i'.ut it is nil false, lies ami fals
hoods. I must. I will speak," said the
German, suddenly lookiug round, be
wildered. "Do I dream? Are you
mad? What may it be?"
"Go, dog!" cried the Dutchwoman.
"I would have been a rich woman this
day If it had not been for your lazi
ness, praying with the Kaffirs behind
the kraal walls. Go, you Katiir do?!"
"But what then is the matter? What
may have lu'ppoTicd Mince I left?" said
the German, turning to the Hottentot
woman who sat upon the step.
She was his friend; she would toil
him kludly the truth. The woman an
swered by a loud, riuging laugh.
"Give it him. old missis! Give It
him!"
It was so nice to see the white man
who had b-eii master hunted down.
The culered woman laughed and threw
a dozen mealic grams Into her mouth
tn chew.
All nupT and excitement faded from
the old man's face. He turned slowly
away and walked down the little path
to hit- cabin, with ills shoulders lient.
It vas all dark before him. lie stum
bled over the threshold of his own well
kr.oY.vi door.
Eim. sobbing bitterly, would have
followed him. but the Boor woman pre

Em by the arm. She had struck Lyn

"Ho you will ilc fy me, too, will you,

as with one hand she twitl the Hiild
down and held her bead tightly against
hr knee. VV'itli tiie other she la-ut her
first upon one cheek and then upon the
other.
For one instant Lyndall looked on.
Then she laid her small lingers oa the
Boer woman's arm. W ith the exert loa
of half her streugth Tant' Saanie might
have flung the girl buck upon the
stones. It was not the power of the
slight flngern, tightly though they
clinched her broad wrist so tightly
that at iHMltlnio tho murks were still
there, but the Boor woman looked Into
tho clear eyes and at the quivering
white lips and with a half surprised
curse relaxed her hold. The girl drew
Em's arm through bur own.
"Mover' she said to Bonaparte, who

the Invincible. In the hour of his til
umph, moved to give her place.
The nottentot ceased to langh, and
an uncomfortable silence fell oa ull tho
three in the doorway.
Once In their room, Em sat down on
the floor and wailed bitterly. Lyndall
lay on the bed, with her arm drawn
across her eyes, very white and still
"Hoo, hoo!" cried Em. "And they
won't let hlni take the gray mare, and
Waldo has gone to the mill. Hoo, hoo!
And perhaps they won't let ub go and
say goodby to him. Hoo, hoo, hoo!"
"I wish you would bo quiet," said
Lyndall without moving. "Does It
give you such felicity to let Bonaparte
know he is hurting you? We will ask
no one. It will be supper time soon.
Listen, and when you hear the chink of
the knives and forks we will go out
and see him."
Em suppi-oseed her sobs and listened
intently, kneeling at the door. Sud
denly some one cam' to tho window
and put the shutter up.
"Who was that?" said Lyndall, start
ing.
"The girl, I supisise," said Em. "How
early she in this evening!"
But Lyndall sprang from tho bed nnd
seized the handle of the door, shaking
It fiercely. The door was locked on
tho outside. She ground her teeth.
"What Is the mutter?" asked Em.
The room was in perfect darkness
cow.
"Nothing," said Lyndall quietly, "on
ly they have locked us in."
She turned and went back to bed
again. But ere long Em beard a sound
of movement Lyndall had climbed
up Into the window and with her lin
gers felt the woodwork that surround
ed the panes. Slipping down, the girl
loosened the Iron knob from the foot
of the bedstead, and, climbing up
again, she' broke with it every pane of
glass in the window, beginning at the
top and ending nt the bottom. .
"What are you doing?" asked Em,
who heard the falling fragments.
ner companion made her no reply,
but leaned on every little crossbar,
which cracked and gave way beneath
her. Then she pressed with all her
strength against the shutter. She had
thought the wooden bnttons would
give way, but by the clinking sound
she knew that the Iron bar had been
put across. She was quite quiet for a
time. (.'Limbering down, she took from
the table a small one bladed penknife,
with which she began to pock nt the
hard wood of the shutter.
"v hat are you doing now?" asked
Em, who had ceased crying In her won
der and had drawn near.
"Trying to make a hole," was the
short reply.
"Do you think you will be able to?"
"No, but I am trying."
In an agony of suspense Em waited,
For ten minutes Lyndall peeked. Tin
hole was three-eighths of an Inch deep,
Theu the blade sprang into ten pieces..
"What has happened nuw?" asked
Em, blubbering afresh.
"Nothing," said Lyndall. "Bring m'
my nightgown, a piece of paocr and
the niatcV.w .
Wondering, Em fumbled about till
sh found them.
"What .ire yon going to do with
them?" she whispered.
"Burn d.wn the window."
"But won't the whole house take lire
and burn down too?"
"Yes."
"But will it not be very wicked T
"Yes, very, a:vl I do not care."
She arranged the nightgown careful
ly In the corner of the window, with
the chips of the frame about it. There
wu only one match in the box. She
drew it ccrefuily along ibo wall. For
a moment It burned up blue and show
ed the tiny face with its glistening
eyes. She held It carefully to the pa
per. For au' instant It burned up
brightly, then dickered and went out.
She blew tho s;ark, but it died also.
Then she threw the paper on to the
ground, trod on it and went to her bed
and began to undress.
Em rushed to the door, knocking
against It wildly.
"Oh, Tant Nannie, Tant" Sannle! Oh,
let us out!" she cried. "Oh, Lyndall,
what are we to do?"
Lyndall wiped a drop t blood off
the lip she had bitten.
"I am goi .ft to sleep," she said. "If
you like to sit there and howl till the
morning, do. Perhaps you will And
thai It helps. I never heard that howl
ing helped any one."
Long after, when Em herself hnd
gone to bed and was almost asleep
Ljndall crnie and stood at her Ix-d-
side.
"li.re." she said, slipping a little pot
01 powder into !: hand. "Bub some
oa your fa.-.-. Does It not burn where
she struck you?"
Then she crept b;'ck to her own bed.
Liong. long urter. when Em .was rejiilr
ashrep, she lay ttiil awake and folded
her hands on her little breast and uni
te; ed:
"When that diy comes and I am
strong. I w'll hate everything that lias
power nnd hebi everything that Is
W( ak." And she bit her lip again.
The Gorman looked out at tho cabin
door for tho last time that night. Then
h paced the room slowly and sighed.
Then he drew out a pen and jiajier and
sat down to write, rubbing bis old
gray eyes with his knuckles before he
began:

Having concluded tola quaint pro
duction, he put It where the children
would tlnd it the next morning and
proceeded to prepare his bundle. He
never thought of entering a protest
against the loss of his goods. Like a
child he submitted and wept, lie had
been there 11 years, and It was hard to
go away. He spread open on the bed
a blue handkerchief and on it put cne
by one the things he thought most
necessary and Important a little bog
of curious seeds which lie meant to
plant some day, an old German' hymn
book, three misshapen stones that he
greatly valued, a I'.'.ble, a shirt and two
handkerchiefs. Then there was room
for nothing more. He tied up the bun
die tightly and put It on a chair by
hla bedside.
"That Is not much. They cannot say
I take much," he said, looking at It.
He put his knotted stick beside It,
his blue tobacco bug nnd his short pipe,
and then Inspected his coats. He had
two lert, a moin eaten overcoat and a
black alpaca out nt the elbows. He
decided for the overcoat. It was warm
cortaiuly, cut theu luj could carry it
over his arm and only put it on when
he met some one along the road.' It
was more respectable than the black
alpaca. He hung the greatcoat over
tho back of tho chair ami stuffed a hart!
bit of roaster cake under the knot of
the bundle, and then his preparations
were completed. The German stood
contemplating tliem with much satis'
faction. lie had almost forgotten his
sorrow at leaving In his pleasure nt
preparing. Suddenly he started. An
expression of intense pnin passed over
his face. He drew back his left arm
quickly and then pressed his right hand
upon his breast.
"Ah, the sudden pang again!" he
Bald.
Ills face was white, but it quickly re
gained Its color. Then the old man
busied himself in puttlDg everytblu,
right.
I will leave it neat. They shall not
6ay I did not leave It neat," he said.
Even the little bags of seeds on the
mantelpiece he put In rows and dusted.
Then he undressed and got Into bed'.
Under his pillow was a little story
book. He drew It forth. To the old
German a story was no story. Its
events were as real and as Important
to himself as the matters of his own
life. He could not go away without
knowing whether that wicked earl re
lented and whether the laron married
TCmtllnn. s ho. adjusted his spectacles
and began to read. Occasionally, as
his feeling became too strongly mov
ed, he ejaculated: "Ah, I thought ho!
Thitt was a rogue. I saw it before. I
knew it from the beginning." More
than half an hour had passed when he
looked up to the silver watch at the
top of his bed.
"The march Is long tomorrow. This
will not do," he said, taking off his
spectacles and putting them carefully
into the book to mark the place. "This
will be good reading as I walk along
tomorrow," he added as be stuffed the
book Into the pocket of the greatcoat.
very good reading." lie nodded bis
head and lay down. He thought a lit
tle of his own troubles, a good deal of
the two little girls he was leaving, of I
the earl, of Emiilna, of the baron, but
he wtis soon n.slcep, sleeping as peace
fully as a little child upon whose Inno
cent soul sorrow nnd care cannot rest.
It was very quiet In the room. The
coals in the fireplace threw a dull red
light acros8 the , floor upon the red
lions on the quilt. Eleven o'clock
came, and the room was very still. Ou
o clock came. The glimmer had died
out, though the ashes were still warm,
and the room was very dark. The gray
mouse which had Its hole under tne
tool box came out and sat on the sacks
In the corner. Then, growing bolder,
the room was so dark, It climbed the
chair at the bedside, nibbled at the
roaster cake, took one bite quickly at
the candle and then sat on Its haunch
es llstenlug. It heard the even breath
ing of the old man and the steps of the
hungry Kaffir dog going his last round
In search of a bone or a skin that hnd
been forgotten, and it heard the white
hen call out as the wildcat ran away
with one of her brood, and It beard t he
chicken cry. Then the gray mouse
went back to its hole under the tool
bov, nnd the room was onlot. And 1
o'clock came. Ey that time the night
was grown dull and cloudy. The wild
cat had gone to Its home on the "kop
je." The Kafllr dog hnd found a bone
and lay gnawing It.
An intense quiet reigned everywhere
Only in her room the P.oer woman tosH-
ed her great arms in her sleep, for she
dreamed that a dark shaJow with out
stretched wings lied slowly over ber
houe, and she moaned and shivered.
And the night was very still.
Put, quiet as all places were, there
was a quite peculiar quiet In the Ger
man's room. Though you strained
your car most carefully, you caught
no sound of breathing.
lit? was not gone, for the old coat
still huug on the chair, the coat that
was to le put on when he met any
one, aud the bundle and stick were
ready for tomorrow's long march. The
old German himself lay there, hla wavy
black hair just touched with gray
thrown back upon the pillow. The old
face was lyinjt there alone In the dark,
smiling like a little child's oh, ho
peacefully! There Is a stranger whose
coming, they say, Is worse than all the
ills of life, from whose presence wo
fleo away trembling, but he comes
very tenderly sometimes, and It seem
ed almost us though death had known
and loved the old man, so gently It
touched lilni.' And how could It deal
hardly with hlni the loving, simple,
childlike old man?
So It smoothed out the wrinkles that
were in the old forehead and fixed the
passing smile and sealed the eyes that j
they might not weep again, and then
the abort sleep of time waa melted lot i
the long, long sleep of eternity.
"How has he grown so young In this
one night?" they said when they found
him In the morning.
Yes, dear old man, to such as yon
time brings no age. You die with the
purity and Innocence of your child
hood npon you, though you die in your
gray hairs. ,

Taxes and Funds
A glance at the state treasurer's boolu
reveals the fact that tax collections foi
the fiscal yearemiing November .10, 181K)
were considerably lighter than in previ
ous years. Notwithstanding this faci
the receipts from all sources during tbi
year amount to more than W.fiOO.OOO. Ii

During the same period, registered
general fund warrants and interest,
were paid amounting to something over
$850,000; stat bonds amounting to over
P'.M.OOO were redeemed outof thesinkinu
fund, over S)'20,000 was apportioned to
the various counties out of the tempo
rary school fund, and practically all of
the toraporary university fund has been
used in the payment of university war
rants.
On the fourth of the present month
the December apportionment will be
made, und from present appearances it
will be near the WOO.OOO mark.
In volume of receipts the nermanent
school fund stands next to tho general
fund, about fGCO.OOO having been receiv
ed by the treasurer during tho fiscal
year; about 241,OOQ of this, came from
sales of comuwii achool lands nnd saline
lands, and the remaining 8410.000 was
simply a return of money formerly in
vested; of this latter sum, $18,000 comes
from redemption of state bonds held by
the permanent school fund. 8113.000
came from the redemption of county
bonds, and about fSOft.OOO from the re
demption of general fund state warrants
purchased as an investment for the per

Mescrvo's first term. .
At tho beginniner of the fiscal vear

During the year? 121.000 in count v bonds
and about S&W.OOO in general fund state
wur rants have been purchased as an in

be noted that tho net accretions to that
