BURIED IN THE ELAME.
BY COULTER RUXTON.
"It is vciy true, Kathleen," said Ed
gar Fitzgerald, with a quiet lauuli, as
out of his large blue eye, in which
there slept the spirit of good-nature, he
shot rays of fun into the dark, Hashing
ones of his companion "it is very
true," he repeated, "I wasn't horn with
a silver spoon in my mouth, as the sa--ing
is, notwithstanding I was blessed
from the moment I saw the bright sue
with a reasonable share of good luck.
When I came into this beautiful world,
Kathleen made all the more pleasant
by your presence, inavourneen the
cats didn't mew, nor the dogs bark t
sure sign, the old lady said who attend
ed on my advent, that my days would
pass in peace, and that the love of nay
heart 'd be safe in that of the girl who
was born to be my helpmeet a true
friend through all my life."
"Ah!" said tho beautiful Kathleen,
with a smile and a toss of her small,
splendidly-poised head, "and have ou
found her yet, Mr. Fitzgerald?"
"By my faith, I have," said Edgar,
smiling. "She's all that my dreams
ever painted me in the form of a wo
man. I love her, Kathleen. - Ah. if
you only knew how deep down in my
heart she has buried herself!"
"Thon no angol with his trumpet
calling to judgment will ever resurrect
"I hope not, Kathleen, I hope not.
Why should the darling come out ol
Iter home into a cold world?"
"To get a little air and exerc ise."
"Well ausweied, young lady. 15ut
I'm afraid, should the skittish, timid,
nervous creature ever get away, there'd
be no catching her again."
"Then she's a prisoner, Mr. Fitzger
ald?" "She is, and again she is not, Kath
leen. You ought to know."
"I! How should I?"
"Misery? She wants me to answer
what's impossible for a man."
"But how can a woman go and biiry
herself in a man's heart, and then be
and not be at liberty to do as she
'Women are born logicians now,"
exclaimed Fitzgerald, with a quizzical
look. "I always thought when a pretty
shelcen loved a man.that she didn't care
about ranging the commons, and try
ing to worry poor devils for whom she
didn't care a ha'porth."
"And who do yoti love, ami whq do
you imagine Joves j'ou?"
" Fitzgerald laughed, and stood up,
Jle was a splendid specimen of joung
manhood, and the girl's eyes had a
warm, soft lire in them as she looked
"And you want me to answer your
perplexing double question ?" he
"I shouldn't have asked it if I didn't
think you mannerly enough to answer
me," she returned.
"Then I'll answer you by repenting
one name twice. It's Kathleen Katl.
The girl turned away her head aud
suppressed a sigh,
She tlid indeed love Fitzgerald more
ardently, more devoted:v than he suu-
osed. But ti ere was one wtiom she
oved as dearly, in another sense, as her
young admirer. That one was her
father. There had been a feud between
tlie Fitzgerahls and the Fiiwcetts for
generations, and until now the wooing
by a son cf the one the daughter of the
other had never happened. KathJeen
lelt tli at a great gulf, an im passable
abyss, was between tin -rn, yhieh neith
er could cross.
Kathleen,' abruptly spr.ko Fitzsrerr
aid, 'Mon't let us bandy words. You
know that I h'Ve j'P'i with all my heart
and sou'i that J would lay thw u my
life if it would please you in any way.
You know that. Now, girl, why not
s c ak plain. Tell me you hate rue, if
you daie love me, if you can."
"Edgar," she whispered, going to his
Bide, and placing one of her little hands
on one of his shoulders, "you know Unit
it cannot be. What if I did say that I
loved you? It would prolit you noth
ing. Do you think our love for e tch
other would wash out forever the bitter
hatred foolish as it is that for centu
ries has divided our people? Love?
We who are born sworn enemies, love?
No, Edgar. I will tell you I do love
you. No one else has my heart but
you. But what avails it? Get my
fathers consent, and I will leap into
your arms. He would shojt you dow n
as he would a mad dog if he thought
you cared for me!"
"I know. I know, darling, all all
that. But I'll pray nd hope. There's
something tells me. Kathleen that our
souls will yet be united."
Ho stooped and kissed the beautiful
"I'll wait and pray, too, Edgar," she
replied, and then went away in t he di
rection of her home, thinking; dream
Edgar Fitzgerald passionately loved
the dark-eyed' Kathleen, hut tiie bitter
feud which had so long made tiie an
cestors of botli generations uncompro
mising enemies, placed thcru, as iho
girl had thought aud often said, so far
apart that there seemed no hope of
ficace being declared between the fami
ies. Thus the young man mused as he
lay in his bed, the windows of the room
in" which it was looking out upon tho
homestead of the Fawcetts a quarter
of a mile distant the old moss and ivy-,
covered stone house in which Kathleen,
the only daughter of the family, slept,
and mayhap in her dreams wandered
through grassy. Mower-carpeted de!!s
with the man of all the world she cared
And while Edgar rested on his couch
wide awake, pondering on the crosses
of love, his chamber was suddenly il
luminated with a glaring, red light.
Leaping from his cot, he ran to a win
dow. A single glance informed him
that the homestead of the enemies of
his family was in tlaines.
"My God!" he cried, as he tumbled
iuto his clothing and rushed out of the
building;. "Kathleen is in peril. I will
save her, though I die for it."
With tiie speed of the antelope he
ran across the intervening space". He
was Ihe lirst to arrive.
"Ha!" ho muttered, "these insane
people will think I have applied the
torch to their house. Fools! fools!
A window opened in the second story
and the young Kathleen looked out.
She recognized tho presence of her
"Edgar," she cried, in a low, quiet
voice, "do not fear for me. The lire
is below. Go to tho window that looks
out on the garden, and break through
it. It reaches to a large pan I ry. Open
the door opposite that window, and you
will there tin J my f.-.th r. He is a
heavy sleeper, llemovc iiim befora the
smoke or the llamcs rca h him, God
bless you, darling,. When you have
bin cear from danger, call me,"
The building was old. aud tho old tim
ber in it as dry as tiuder. Before Ed-
f;ar Filz.erald could reach the window
ndicated by tiie intrepid K itiilccn, Ihe
Uanns, wish a loud roar, swept up tho
lower corridor, and were licking at the
Janels of the door behind which Mr.
aweett was reposing, of course uncon
scious of danger.
Edgar leaved through the window.
On opening t.io entrance opposite, he
ran to the bed in which the old gentle
man was. Not tupping to awaken
him, E. iga'.' vai&ed him in his strong
sums, and retreated as 'no had entered.
lo was not a moment loo goon. As ho
retired lonir h iksof tl.ime had eat.-n
t!ie;r way through the closed door on
tho corridor, and were already dancing
with the cut tains that inclosed the old
fashioned b dstead.
Fitzgerald ran to the suniiner-house
!n the garden, and there placed his
charge on a long bench. There he
slept as sotni'Uy as if lie had not been
removed from Ids comfortable mattress
"Now fqr Kathleen." muttered the
loyey. ''l'ei ha; s she's iu danger. My
God, I hear the flames in the lowet
hall! Ha! I see they have run up the
stairs where Kathleen is V
'The thought and eight maddened
him, . He rushed to the front of the old
building. There he found a number of
Jhe Faw-cett faction. These, on seeing
him, began to cry out that he must
have, iu revenge, tired the house.
"Fools!" he hoarsely shouted, "do
not stand there lowering at me. Help
me to save the people within, and then
do with me as you will. Kathleen !
There was no response to his cry.
"My God!" he groaned, "she will
perish perhaps has already been de
stroyed! Help! Help me, men!"
His quick eye caught a ladder lying
near the barn. He ran to it, and d rag
ing it, he brought it to the front of tho
house, and, by main strength, succeed
ed in raising it against the window from
which his idol had addressed him.
In a moment he had mounted the lad
der. On gaining the window, he leap
ed into the room in which Kathleen
slept. When he had disappeared, one
or i wo of the Fawcett faction ran toward
the ladder, crying:
"Let's throw this down, and let the
villain perish in the flames of his own
But three or four of the peasant wo
men, who had been attracted by the
