In the nnnnls of crime,
A short time before the outbreak of
tho Civil war, there lived at ono of the
llttlo towns adjacent to Hodgeiiville,
a lovely girl, Just budding Into woman
hood, named Mary Schndor. Her father
was a Herman grocir. In tho same
square with the Schaders lied Dr. Al
fretl Illnes, a phyiiii Ian of note, and n
man who stood high with all ohmr-os
of tho community. He was advanced
in years, quite wealthy, and the father
of a large and Interesting family. He
was the Schaders' family physician, and
an Intimacy sprung i.p between lilm
and .Mary. When tho tiuth was dis
covered her father arranged with Hen
PlckoiPll and wife of Iirne counly,
to take tho girl and care for her until
she recovered from her approaching
Illness. They wpio to rpeelvo sutriclont
remuneration for their trouble, and
Illnes, It hi said, footed the bill.
The "Level Woods" Is about eight
miles from Hodgeiiville, and Is an al
most unbroken forest. It is hard to
imngino a more forbidding and des
olate place. In the heart of this dreary
wilderness was the home of Hen Plek
erell. Hero Mary Schadcr was taken,
and, after a few months n boy wan
Old Piekcrell w.is rather well-to-do,
owning a large farm and a number of
slaves. His family consisted of his
wlfo and several children, among
whom was a grown son.
After Mary Scantier recovered, she
decided to remain with the Plekoivlhi
In the capacity of n servant, and jbe
and her child wcro Installed in n log
cabin homo distance from tho family
lesldence. Her baby throve and grew
to be u tine healthy boy, and .Mary
herself was moio charming ami pret
tier than ever. She was quiet and un
obtrusive and mailo friends readily,
uid sho and her baby boenmo favorlte-.i
of almost the entlro neighborhood.
Theio was one who was particularly
attentive to Mary. This was Picker
Ml'o son, a handsomo young fellow,
lust ni rived nt manhood's estate. That
Mary reciprocated his tender feelings
was evident to all; but this nttnehment
tvns looked upon with great disfavor
by tho young man'r, mother. Ixjvo rec

become exceeding obnoxious to two

urged her bon to craso hla attentions
to the "wanton," an she styled her, and
had also hpoken to Mary about tho
matter In no mild terms, but tho lovers
