Dick Barnett, the schoolmaster of
Exton, cast a parting look at himself
In the cracked mirror over the little
washstand. added a few final touches
to his toilet, and sighed.
"Not much of a piece to leave," as
he turned and swept the barely fur
nished room with a glance. "But still
I'm sorry to go."
He was a slender young man, with a
keen, intellectual face, and carried
hlnibclf with a certain dignity as be
came one who had been five years the
Tillage schoolmaster. He was only 24,
but looked much older, as the result
of hard work and study. Ho did not

agogue. As his glance linger-od on the faded
hanglncs, the uncomfortable looking
haircloth furniture, tha faded rag car
pet, it rested on a small trunk in the
middle of the room, and he frowned.
"I wonder what can keep the fellow?"
he muttered. "He promised mo faith
fully he would not disappoint."
Just then a timid knock sounded on
the door, and presently a man entered,
a rough, ungainly fellow, In a dit ty can-
vas suit, whose wild hair and heard i
made him resemble one of those gro-!
tesque toys that are2 sold , about the
streets during the holidays.
"Well, here I be," said the newcomer
in a deep bass voice.
"Very good, Jim. Now you will take
this trunk to the station without saying
whose it is. It no one know I am
going. Understand?"
"Here is for your trouble." and from
a Blender purse the young man passed
over a silver piece, which the other,
after biting, thrust in his pocket Then
he shouldered the trunk and with a
"Good night, guv'nor," went out with
hu burden through the door.
Barnett waited until he heard the
man's steps on the front porch, then;

to the entrance of an extensive estate,
and paused for a moment before the
great iron gate. It? seemed to him that!
the stone lions bearing shields on the
pillars on each side of the way were
grinning at him derisively. "I wonder
if I shall ever see this place aaln?

he wnlked on without stumbling
through the blackness, coming pres
ently 'to another hedge scarcely higher
than his shoulder. A silvery radiance
shone over this part of the park. Here
he paused for a moment to listen, then
stepped back Into the shadows. There
was the sound of rustling leaves, and
then a man appeared in the moonlight.
Dick could only make out that he
was tall and ragged, for his face was
in the pliadow of an overhanging
bough. Only for a moment did the
stranger stand there, when he turned
and made off In the direction of the
house, the lights of which could be
seen gleaming In the distance.
"What can that ruffian be doing
here?" muttered the schoolmaster ns
he came out Into the path again. "A

"My di-ar, I am acting for the best,"
firmly. "My usefulness here Is over,
and to remain would only make mat

as me. I am going to the city, where
there Is some chance for me to show
my ability if I have any. There Is no
chance for me to rise here, and when
I have made a competence, and am in
a po3itlon to teke care of you as you
deserve, why, we will marry in spite
of the world."
"And will that be very long very,
very olng?" she asked in a doleful
voice that caused him to laugh.
"Not long if the world appreciates my
transcendant genius," with a flippant
air. "Not long, if hard work and ap
plclation will lift me to a respectable
place in society."
"Still I think It is very mean of you
to go," poutingly.
"Don't think it is not a wrench for
me to part from you."
But the girl refused to be comfort
ed, and it was only through lavish en
dearments and many promises that she
became more composed and reasonable,
and be.gnn to share his views that it
was for the best.
"But we can't part this way," she
protested. "I must give you something
to remember me by. Just wait here for
a moment until I run over to tuo house.
I shall not be gone long," and before
he had a chance to protest that a souve
nir wa3 not necessary, she had flitted
away out beyond the light into the
After she had gone he found himself
listening to the myriad' insect voices of
the forest, that seemed to fall with Ir
ritating reiteranoe on his ears. He felt
far from being in a cheerful mood, not
'knowing what the future might bring
form, or if, indeed, he ever should see
it would be to fall fighting.
How long the girl was! It seemed to
'him that she must have been gone for
hours. Perhaps she had been oetaln
ed, and it would be impossible for her
to return. Still, knowing what a pas
sionate little person she was, and ac
customed pretty much to having her
light tie saw that her face wore an an-
gry expression.
"What are yon dolnr? here?"
He diil not answer, for the surprise
of the meeting had checked his speech.
She was a tall, handsome woman, and
wore an evening dress that displayed
her fine arms and bosom. In the moon-
j light, with the dark trees around, she
iwas a picture for a painter,
She was swinging a garden hat back
and forth In one Jewelled hand with an
(angry gesture, then, stamping her foot,
: she repeated the question.
"I ask you again, Rlr, what are you
doing in these grounds?"
"It may be that I came to take a
last look at the house of my friend,
Mr. Ellison," he stammered. .
"You might havt spared yourself the
trouble since it is my house and not
his," which was true, Dick knew, since
the wife had the fortune. "And now,
since you have seen it, go!"
'Yes," replied the young man, but
making no move to leave.
"I know that It was one of the fam
ily you came to see," she continued
with rising anger. "I congratulate Mr.
In here like a thief In the night, to see

"Your daughter will never suffer at
mv hands, madam," the anger rising
within him, which he dared 'not give
vent to.
'Enough! We will not discuss that

on your going. Do you want me to ap-
na 1 t ,t,a aaria nta "
I 1 will go. I will go," murmured
poor Dick, as he moved away, cursing
hi misfortune In having encountered
this beautiful fury at such a time. Once
he looked back, only to find that she
was still standing in the path looking
after him. She doubtless meant to re-
j main there until slin was suro that he
wns on his way out of the park. With
a sigh he went on hi way, until a turn
of the path hid her from sight.
Then he stopped for a moment to
consider. Should he not be able to re
turn by a circuitous way to the place
where bo wu to watt for Grace? What
would abe think If she arrived there
and found that be was gone. Was it
not worth braving even tne anger of
Mrs. Ellison to try and see her again?
Whio he wlas considering tbera after
an agonizing cry In a woman's voict
rang through the woods. Had some,
thing happened to Grace? Without I
moment's hesitation he dashed bad
over the road he had just traversed. II
was only a short distance before he al
most stumbled over the figure of a
woman on the ground. It was" verj

eyes were closed, a strange pallor on
her face. He laid her gently on the
bank at the side of the road. Had shf
fainted? It was strange that he should
be the first to come to the assistance 01
a woman who had been .abusing blic
but a few moments before. Had th
excitement of that short Interview sc
worked on her nerves that she had
fainted? What was to be done? It was
an embarrassing position for him to b
in. There was nothing that he could
do to help her and' yet help she need
ed. Should he call for assistance'
There seemed1 to be nothing else to do;
he could not leave the poor womar
there even if she had Insulted him.
Then as he leaned over her, hoping
to see some signs of returning con
sciousness, a shuddering feeling of ter
ror crept over him. There was t
strange stain on the white silk waist, a
stain that as he watched seemed to bt
spreading slowly slowly. Filled with
horror of the sight and the conscious
ness that he was in the presence of thf
victim of a tragedy, he looked around
him with frightened eyes. Then he
turned instinctively to bis hands
they felt warm and strangely moist
With a feeling of overcoming faintnest
he stooped hastily and began to hur
riedly clean them on the grass. It
soemed as if it seemed as if the stains
would never come out
He was rising, eager to be on his way
to the house and warn the people oi
what had taken place. Then he felt a
strong hand grasping his shoulder. He
remembered trying to wrench himseli
free. Then the confused sound of many
voices, the flash of lanterns and im
precations in which his name was min
gled ,then a blow that mercifully seem
ed to dispel all these distorted visions
and a grateful oblivion that hid every
thing. (To be continued.)
Former Kansas City Fire Horses Por
trayed in Harper's Weekly.
Kanaas City Star: A full page illus
tration of an article on the higher edu
cation of the horse in a late issue of
Harper's Weekly, shows the famous
Kansas City Are horses, "Joe" and
"Dan" going through their star per
formance. The illustration is a repro
duction of a photograph that is familiar
to the people of Kansas City, who take
pride in the fame achieved by the exhi
bition fire team in Europe. "Joe" and
"Dan" have passed away and have been
succeded by "Buck" and "Mack," a fine
pair of steeds that have in some re
Bpects excelled their predecessors.
There are also other teams of the Kan
sas City Are department that are crowd
ing the star horses for their laurels.
Speaking of the 'higher education' of
horses the article in question says:
"The horses of the New York police
department, the sh5w horses of the
Kansas City fire .department and many
of the horses of the military in Europe
have received this higher education.
Unquestionably one of the best trained
fire teams in the United States is com
posed of two white horses, 'Joe' and
'Dan,' which accompanied Chief Hale
of Kansas City to the Paris exposition.
Their display takes place in the open
air instead of in an engine house. Th
horses are placed a short distance away
from the wagon and on a bugle call
being sounded dash to the pole and are
hitched. The harness is of the skeleton
character, the collar having an opening
at the bottom which enabes it to be
held open by a man at each horse's
head. As signals are given the horses
hy a bugle, which they answer with
percislon; also going through many
intricate evolutions. One of the most
exciting incidents of the drill is a leap
through an arch of flames, showing how
utterly regardless of fire these brave
and intelligent animals are."
