t lion leaving your house thnt night I
determined to return at once, to tho
city. I could have caught the train
that loaves at lo;30 and had made, up
my mind Io take It. Hut us I reached
the gate l)r Wilbur passed me. .1
knew he was coming to attend your
wife. A feeling of curiosity eaine to
me, a feeling that I slioulll like, to
know tho .sex of your child, to
sou if your hones would be ronlloil.
An Idle curiosity, perhaps, but it
caused me to retrace my footstep nil
the way back to your house. 1 had
gone nearly to West Chester aftar the
do-tor had passed mo. alking along.
, thinking, I passed the hoio-eof Conrad
i (iardncr. There wii.s a light In the

lights in the windows of the room up
on tlie second floor -your wlfoV, room.
I knew it to be. I am familiar with
the old house; I know every nook and
corner in it. There is a nanow Iron
trellis mctl by my mother- our mother,
Adrian during her life, to train run
ning roses upon. It reaches the very
top of the house. It passes close to
thu windows of your wife's room.
This I climbed, and standing upon it,
hanging on with first one band, then
the other, 1 was enabled to tool; into
file room as the shades were not drawn
K'. the way down. Hut 1 could not
see what I emtio for. Tor two or per
haps three hours, I hung on. I could
sen the bed, the weak woman upon it,
the child in the arms of Mary Cahler,
but that was all.
"At last I grew so tired from my tin
eoinfortab'o position that 1 ' was
obliged to descend to the ground, 1
believe I would have fallen if I bad
not done so. I was leaning against the
house rcuovorlng my breath, when

logo Into detail now, as to what
passed between us; you already know
it. After leaving .lames Potter. I hur
ried along tlu road toward town. I
knew there was no train until six
o'clock, but I preferred to wait in the
station, rather than in the vicinity of
your house. I walked rapidly for
awhile, but remembering I had plenty
of time, I finally checked my rupiil
pace, and walked along more 'slowly.
As I fell into an easy lounging gate,' I
heard footsteps beh'ind ine-hoiuo one
going toward West' Chester. A com
panion! I thought, and halted to al
low the person to overtake me. It was
"And you met him on the road?"
'So, ho came up behind me. J recog
nized him, even before he had reached
me. I made myself known. He
seemed delighted to see me. 'You are
out rather lute to-night,' 1 said. 'Yes,
much later than I usually care about
being out.' he answered. 'lint these
women must be atten oil to.' I ques
tioned him aboutyour wife your child.
Ho told mo. I art mil ly foil sorry for
you, Adrian. I know what a liltter
disappointment it must have been. I
said as much to the doctor. Mv
brother will bo greatly disappointed.
Ilo had his heart set on a boy.'
"'Wo can't rule these things, we
must take them as they come,' lie said
men lie made soino remark to the
effect that he had spoken to you about
pussing mo up in the path,' and that
you had denied my being at your
house. 1 gave some expla
nation, I don t remember what. I
asked him about what hour your child
had been Lorn. 'A little after 10,' he
answered. 'I can tell you positively,
he added, and tool: a little note-book
fi om his pocket. 'I have it all hero,'
he said, tapping the little hook, 'o very
thing about It -time of birth, mx and
all.' Ilo struck a match upon thu
head of his cam and, glancing at the
book, said: 'Ten-twenty or thirty, I
will not be sure.' Wo walked along a
little further. I was thinklm how
s'langcly f.ito deals with us (iardner,
tho proud father of a sou, you thu (lis
nppointed patent of a huh' girl. Why
could not it have been vice versa? Sud
denly the Doctor stopped.
' 'I actually believe I have lost mv

used it at dardner's house. I Iiavo
either loft it tliero, or dropped it by
Hie roadside. It is too bad; lint I must
return to dardiicr's housf, and if It is
not there, bonow a lantern and search
for It. It is a valuable one.'
"Ho seemed much put out over his
loss and left me, 1 not caring to return.
I reached tho dopot, and utter a few
hours' waiting, took thu early train
into the city."
Tho brother braves a sigh.
"Well, go on," ho says, "explain why

The accompanying llltistiatloiifl show
u novel horseshoe that baa been sub

hsilf a dozen horses. In oviry luMuurc
It has worked to perfection.
I.Ike a great many works of Renins,
Hie one in ipicMlon Is extremely simple.
It consists of a hand of metal about an
Inch high, which fits around the lower
ed;e of tho hoof. At the base of tills
hand tliero Is a nort of projecting shelf,
or flange, which Is iniiile to tit Into a
groove which runs around the inside of
the alioo. The latter Is made of Mecl, or
the usual shape mid idle The only
differences between It and ihe ordinary
shoe hi the prcsurc of tho groove anil
the absence of mill holes.
When the hand Is fitted to the hoof
(which Is done very tciullly), the shoe.
In turn Is attached by slipping the
llango Into the groove. It now remains
to clasp the arrangement by two screws
In tho rear. These may be turned to
nny degree of tightness desired, and a
moderate dog roe Is aiilllclent to prevent
the shoe from coining off. The whole
arrangement may bo put on or taken
off In a moment.
Ah tho tdioo Is not nailed to Hie hoof,
tliero hi a perfect freedom for expan
sion and contraction". This hi a very
essential point, ns all horsemen know.

shoes before retiring for the night. 'We
all know what a relief It Is to take off
our footgear, especially In damp
weather. There Is no reason why the
licrso should not feel equally rollov'cd
when deprived of bin heavy iron clogs,
Another point or advantage, on which
I ho Inventor properly lays much stress,
Is the fact that the shoe Is grasped firm
ly to tho hoof at every point Under the
nailing syBloni tho last nails toward the
rear nre driven about half way betwesn
tho hoel and toe. Thin leaves one-half
of the shoo on either iddn iinfaiitencd.
Tliero Is thuo a considerable lovcrnge,
and It la for this reason that so many
ahooa come olf. If this shoo Is caught,
say In a track, at tho rcn' end, It Is
almost Bitro to come off. This (lilllculty
Is obviated In this shoe. In fact, somo
persons have objected to this shoo on
the ground that It will never pull off
In an accident, thus rendering tho hoof
Itself Hnblo to Injury.

pipsses tho Pllnch firmly down to hold
tho shoo und hoof tightly together, the
spring reacts upon tho scr.iw with piutnl
