OUT OF THE SNARETCi
BY 8. N.
As health and strength came back, so
did curiosity as to my entertainers
wake once more In my breast
One afternoon I was sitting In my
cushioned chair In the old porch, and
the soft air from the sea was like
wine to me. Near me. Miss Margret
sat at her spinning wheel, and th
little maid played out on the bit of
greensward which fronted the house,
with her doll and a little gray klt-
ten Mlml, asj she called It. which
was an especial pet.
'Miss Margret," I said, aa I sat
watching her sweet face as she bent
over her wheel, whose pleasant turn
ing made a pleasant, sleepy whirling
In the still afternoon. "Miss Margret
you have never yet told me how It was
that you -and your little charge canto
to this out-of-the-way place. You are
not Irish 7"
"No," she said, smiling; "I cannot
claim that honor. No, 1 come from
Sussex, in England, from a little sea
side town, called Hastings."
"From Hastings!" I answered, with
a -start. "Perchance you may know
a lad called David BosBum!"
"David Bossum!" she exclaimed.
"David Bossum; then he is not dead
cruelly murdered, as we feared?"
"Surely not," I said, "unless the
storm treated him more hardly than it
did me, for he was well and hearty
when we parted. Loth enough were
we to separate, God knows, but 'twas
thought well for him to remain Willi
my lord aboard the frigate, while I
came with the poor ship whose frag
ments still strew yon black rocks."
"My lord," she said, repeating my
words, "what lord Kpeak you of '.'"
"The earl of Mountbrendon," I an
swered. Then did she stare at me
quite as if stupefied, and so sat down
again, for she was all of a tremble.
"The earl of Mounbrendon," she
said slowly. "What earl of Mount
brendon? For this house belongs to
an earl of Mountbrendon, and he it
was sent us here, using, 1 giant you,
much deceit in so doing. Yes an evil
man but still he said he knew naught
of David, who went to London on the
little maid's business, and then disap
peared and hath never been heard of
again. But If Indeed he really lives
and you have been so long with hlin,
hath he never spoken of his cousin
Meg, and the little maid his father
brought home from Fiance?"
"Oh! what a dolt I have been," I
cried as light Hashed In upon ine
"why did I never guess the riddle?"
Now Just as I had ended, the little
mnld came running toward us cry
ing, "Meg, Meg, look at the beautiful
ship," and so following with our eyes
the direction of her little pointing fin
ger, we were aware of a vessel, brig
rlMged. but of foreign aspect, which
had Just rounded the promontory and
was close In shore.
"They mean to land In the cove be

house and brought out an old perspec

looking at me with a consternated air.
"it Is the earl our earl the traitor,

"Js it so?" I answered. "Then see

Margret, and I will tell Tom to be t.0
likewise Ah! here he comes. It will
be well to walk with caution among

replied, "for it was with deceit that
he brought us here. I had never come

At the Arst sight of Captsla Brim,
I ass free lo confess that say heart
ssnk wltbiii me, for I thought, surely,

desperate men In this lonely place,
where the king's writ has never been
known to run, there will be little
chance that Toss ssd I ever cosse out
Torn, too, saw who It was, and shot
a consternated glance at sse. Then a
thought struck me.
"Clip sway, Tom!" I whispered. "Let
him not see you yet. if he knows me,
it will sll come out, but If not, you
can keep out of the way."
Tom did ss I told him, slipping back
Into the servants' quarters, and I, sit
ting tn my chajr, with the llttlj J
maid's hand In mine, awaited the ad
vent of the two gentlemen.
Heaven save the word! It did not fit
them well, but there, It must serve
this turn for once, as many worthy
things get unworthy using. They
came slowly across the bit of green
sward, and aa they reached the wide
steps, that led Into the porch, I rose
painfully from my chair, putting on,
perchance, a. trifle more of the invalid
than my recovery warranted, and took
off my hat, greeting them with great
"Hallo!" said the earl, pausing,
"who is this?" He looked frowningly
at me, and then at the child, who
made her best and mot-t formal cour
tesy, with a wonderful air of the great
lady which amused me even at the
"Your loi'dnhlp," I replied, humbly,
"I am a poor castaway from the sea; I
was wrecked on your coasst and much
hurt, and by the kindness of your
household have been sheltered and
nursed ever since."
"Eh!" he said, abruptly. "Aye; I
heard somewhat of that. A prize was
It not? But I thought the survivors
had gone on from here."
"So they did," I replied, "but the
rocks here dealt somewhat hardly with
my ribs, and I was forced to remain
und lie still till they were mended."
"What Is your name?" he said. "You
are not a sailor, eh?"
"My name Is George Bishop," I re
plied, thanking my good genius which
had prompted me to call myself Pat
rick Mllligan to Captain O'Brleu at
Qulmper, under which cognomen I had
figured In the list of the prisoners.
"No, I was not bred to the sea, and
became Buch only through hard neces
sity." Now all this time I had been quaking-
inwardly lest Captain O'Brien
should remember me. But, by good
fortune, he did not do ro, which, at
first, appeared strange, yet later I
recognized not to be so wonderful. For
not every man Is gifted with observa
tion; besides, at Qulmper we had no
method of shaving, so that our beards
had grown long for want of a razor,
and there, also, our clothing was of
the scantiest sailor garb, and thai
mostly In rags, whereas now I was
cleanly shaved, and rny hair tied neat
ly back with a black ribbon, and 1
was dressed in a decent suit of gray
frieze, which Miss Margret had man
aged to get fashioned for me by some
village artist, also being much wasted
by illness, I doubt not I looked very
differently to what I did as I sat in
the courtyard carving wooden spoons.
So he did not remember me, and the
earl, after this brief notice, passed me
by as an Insignificant and indifferent
person, and so, bidding his friend en
ter, they quitted the porch and went
Into the house. Of the little maid my
lord took no notice more than a slight
nod. and Tom carefully kept out of

friend that day, for of course they
took their meals apart In the great
dining room as became such noble and
distinguished personages. But the fact
of their presence raised many thoughts
In my mind, and Tom and I had a
long talk that night in our room.
"A conspiracy there Is, and rio
doubt," said Tom, "and this earl is up
to his neck in It, and in league with
the Frenchies for certain."
"And will they let us go?"
"Yes, I think so, and Mick will help
us. Mick is a good fellow, and he
hates my lord like poison, by reason
of his sister Eileen."
But It was not so simple a matter
as Tom thought, for he was consider
ing only the case of us two men.
That would be tolerably easy.doubt
less, but how could I go and leave
these two helpless girls here alone, In
this turmoil, and in the power of an
unscrupulous villain, as this Anthony,
this false earl, had proved himself to

proceedings, which 1 could never con
sent to, .
What conclusion we should have
lOine to, had we bien left more time lo
consider, I know not, but as oft hap
pens In such cases, matters took such
a turn, that we hud only time to act,
Instead of thinking, for us we still
talked, there came a low knock at my
door, and, opening It, there was Miss
Margaret, white as a ghost, and trem
bling. "Oh, I an stupid!" she shUI, "but
bat he frightened me so. He says that
we must be reudy to sail tomorrow
morning at dawn, In Captain O'Bii
en's ship that he means te send his
little cousla to be educated in France,
and that w. must get ready tonight.
And I fear, oh, eh, I fear werse!"
and a sudden tush passed over her
whits face. "I fear he does not mean
to let me go with her. n! be means
to murder her, or shut her up In some
convent or prises, where she will nev
er canape I"
"We will get out of this," I said
again. "Go, Margaret, and get your
self and the child ready; you must
take nothing with you, but put on
your darkest clotnes. We will go to
gether, till near the village, nnd then
Tom shall go on for Mick, snd we will
Surely, In the foldings of these hills,
we shall And some place to hide, until
this tyranny be overpast.
It seemed a f'srful task, but to stay
waa worse. In a quarter of an hour
we were ready, snd Tom and I, with
our shoes hung round our necks, went
softly along the corridor, and tapped
at Margaret's door, which was opened
at once, and there was she and the
child, ready diessed.
"Now, my little body," whispered
Tom, "you must be as Bilent as a
mouse, and let me carry you. Dost
remember how David brought you
ashore from the boat, and how he
praised you for being so silent?"
"Yes," she whispered back, "but, oh!
I was frightened when we slid into the
dark, cold water."
"Well, we have not to go that way
about tonight, but now hush!"
We waited what seemed a long time
Margaret and the child and I. Usten-
ing to the sigh of the wind through
the heather, and now and then start
ing at the wall of some night-loving
bird, but, most of all, dreading pur
suit from the house not that It was
likely we should be missed till the
"How long he is," murmured Mar
gret In my ear; "would It not have
been better to have gone on at once?"
I shook my head. "We do not know
I Liie way," I whispered back, "nark! Is
not that someone coming?"
I had hardly spoken .when a lew
whistle caught our ears, and then
three forms loomed dimly through the
darkness. Thank God! It was Tom
come back, and with him, Mick, with
"Fly the blessed luck of the saints,"
whispered Mick, "I was even goin' to
Kollala, the morn, for a bit of iron,
and other things, and I'm willin' and
glad to help ye out of that scoundrel's
evil powers. So put the bit crathuis
on the pany and hurry up. We must
lost no time."
The girls were put on the1 pony's
back, and Mick, taklntr the bridle, led
the creature over bog, and swamp. aid
moor, while Tom and I followed.
Until the day broke Mick went on,
keeping the track, which was, here
and there, more distinct. Then, sud
denly, he paused, and, putting h!s ear
to the ground, listened a moment.
"There are horsemen comics. " he
said. "We'll just wait and see who
they are before we wish them the top
o' the mornin'. Come up here, my dar
lints," and, turning the pony's head
straight up the side of the hill we were
traveling, we quilted the track, and,
plunging through deep heather, reach
ed a point some distance above the
"Thanks be for the mist," he mut
tered. Just as they came below us, we
heard the foremost draw rein and call
to another who followed to pause.
"They can't have got much beyond
this," he continued, as his comrade
comrade came up, and we all knew the
earl's voice. "If it wasn't for this
cursed fog, we should see them."
That he certainly would, for we stood
together but a hundred yards or so
above his head.
"It is just a wild goose chase,"
growled his companion. "I tell ye,
man, I must go back, or the vessel
will go without me."
"You can't now, without me," said
the earl. "We must find them, for I
have sent the boys in every direction.
How are they to get so far, afoot?
They'll be crouching under a buih, or
stuck in a bog, unless they have got
ponies," and so reach Killala. Then I'll
have them safe. The brat Is my cou
"(n my ward, and the girl I'll say is
my wife as I mean her to be."
"Why, what will Kitty Fenigan say
to that?" sneered O'Brien.
"Hang Kitty Fenigan!"
"Oh! hang her,' by all means, if you
like, but you'll have to reckon with
her, some day. She's got her lines
safe enough. Well, now, I'm going
"You'll be bogged!"
"Well, I'm not going to Killala, I
don't want to be seen there, and, more
over, I don't want to be pestered with
the brat without the girl; that isn't
In the bond." j
So, after some more grumbling,
O'Brien agreed to accompany the earl
and they put spurs to their horses,
and we heard the thud of their hoofs
along the road.
Margaret had not spoken since we
lieu rd those evil men's converse, but
her head was bowed, as if with shame,
and her soft lips set in a curve of
hard resolve, and I knew her heart
was full of bitterness.
So we went,- till mounting the crest
of a hill, we Suddenly came In view
of the town, lying on the stop, by
the entrance of a bay or estuary.
"What Is that house yonder?" 1
asked of Mick, noting a building of
some size barked with woods, now
beautiful with fresh spring tints of
"Sure, that Is the bishop's house,"
said Mick, "your English bishop, I'm
"The bishop's house," I repeated;
and then a sudden Inspiration seized
me. The btehep's house! why! was be
not eur father In Fed! was he not
bound to help and protect us? Yes;
there was the refuge I hud keen long
ing for and praying for, while we
tramped over that weury way, won
dering whom we should Nnd te pre
tent us in our sore need,
"Mick!" I said, "we'll ro there."
(lo Mick took us lo the gate ef the
bishop's house, and then leaving js
with many thanks on nur part, went
to the town with his pony, whistling
carelessly; was he nol on business?
And we went up the broad walk to
Then came a hush, and presently s
sound of footsteps and voices and the
clapping 6f doors, and almost Immedi
ately, down a broad, oaken staircase
on one side of the hall, there descend
ed an elderly lady, diessed In black,
followed by several other women.
At this I stepped forward and sftef
a few words, the lady signed to me tj
"This seems a business to be spokea
of more quietly," she said, for by this
time quite a group of servants and
attendants surrounded us. "Folio
me; my husband is a better counselor
than I can be."
So we followed her Into a library,
where, Irefore a table loaded with
books and papers, the bishop himself
sat,' and after a word from the wife
(as the lady was), I told him in as few
words as possible our story.
I saw his face grow graver and
graver as I spoke, and I guessed that
our little story touched with greater
matters than we wotted of, and so I
ended, saying that not knowing who
else to have recourse to we had come
to him, for protection and help and
"You did well," he said, "and you
shall not ask In vain. But this is a
matter that reaches farther than per
haps you can guess, and I ask you to
be silent and speak of it to no out?
save such pettsons as I shall indictit t.
For the present, you need most n- t

dear wife will. I am sure, cha.i;
herself willingly with the care of this
young lady, whose sad and Strang'--story
you have related, and her bravrt

to learn if her father has reached
home and what steps he Is taking to
Which the good bishop did, and com
pelled us to stay hid in his house till
all fear of pursuit was past, and the
real earl had won back his own.
So that was how we got out of the
snare, and escaped from the mt of
the fowler, and with it, ends my part
in this narrative. Ah! Margret is com
ing this way I can hear the jingle of
