affirmed my words.

I only eald ono word. "Italians."
He swore a round oath and looked at
us from ono to tho other.
"Mr. Cnssllls knows all that I know,"
, said my wife.
"What I want to know." he broke
out. "Is where- the devil Mr. Cassllls
4 cornea from, and what tho devil Mr.
Cassilla Is doing here. You say you
nrc married; that I do not bellovc. If
you wero, Gradon Floo would soon di
vorce you; four minutes nnd a half.
Caasllls, I keep my private cemetery
lor my friends."
"It took somewhat longer," said I,
"for that Italian."
He looked at mo for a moment halt
daunted, and then, almost civilly, ask
ed mo to tell my story. "You have too
much tho ndvantago of me, CasslliB,"
he added. I compiled, of course, and
ho listened, with several ejaculations,
while I told him how I bad come to
Gradon: that It was I whom he bad
trlod to murder on tho night of the
landing; and what I had subsequently
r.een nnd heard of tho Italians.
"Woll," said lie, whon I had done,
, "it la hero at last; there is no mistake
about that, and what, may I ask, do
you propose to do?"
"I propose to Btay with you and lend
a hand," said I
"You are a brave man," he returned,
with n peculiar Intonation.
"I am not afraid," said I.
"And so," ho continued, "I am to
nndorstand that ou two are married?
And you stand up to it before my faco,
"Wo arc not yot married," said Clara,
"but wo shall be as soon as we can."
"Bravo!" cried Northmour. "And tho
4,bargaln7 D It, you'ro not a fool,
young woman; I may call a spado with
you. How about the bargain? You
know ns woll bb I do what your father's
life depends upon. I have only to put
my hands under my coat-tails and
walk away, and his throat would bo
cut before tho evening."
"Yos, Mr. Northmour," returned
Clara, with great spirit; "but that Is
what you will never do. You made a
bargain that was unworthy of a gen
tloman; but you aro a gentleman for
all that, and you will never desert a
man whom you havo begun to help."
"Aba!" Bald ho. "You think I will
give my yacht for nothing? You think
I will risk my llfo and liberty for lovo
of tho old gentleman; and then, I sup
pose, bo best mnn at the wedding, to
wind up? Woll," be added, with an
odd Binllo. "perhaps you aro not alto
gether wrong. But ask Cassilla here.
He knows me. Am I a man to trust?

"But she's not yot Mrs. Casallls. I say
no moro. Tho present Is not for me."
Thon my wife surprised me.
"I leave you hero," she said, sud
denly. "My father has been too long
alone. But remember thla: you aro
to be friends, for you aro both good
friends to mo."
"Seo hero, Northmour," said I; "wo
aro all in a tight place, aro wo not?"
"I beliove you, my boy," he answer
ed, looking mo in tho eyes, and with
great emphasis. "Wo havo ail holl

tiollevo mo or not, but I'm afraid of
"Toll mo ono thing," said I. "What
are thoy after, theso Italians? What
' do they want with Mr. Huddlestono?"
"Don't you know?" ho cried. "Tho
black old scamp had Carbonari funds
on a deposit two hundred and olghty
thousand; and, of courso, ho gambled
it away in stocks. There was to havo
been a revolution in tho Tridentlno,
or Parma, but tho revolution Is off, and
tho whole wasps' nest Is after Huddle
Btono. We shall all bo lucky if wo can
save our skins."
"Tho Carbonari!" I exclaimed; "God
help him, indeed!"
"And now let us go directly to tho
fort," said Northmour, and ho began
to lead tho way through tho rain.
'V CHAPTER VI.
' We wero admitted to tho pavilion by
Clara, and I was surprised by tho com
pleteness and security of the defonses.
A barricade of great strength, and yet
easy to dlsplaco, supported tho door
against any violence from without;
and tho shuttors of tho dining-room,
intp which J was led directly, and
, which was feebly Illuminated by a
lamp, wero oven moro elaborately for
tified. Tho panels woro strengthened
by bars nnd cros3-bars; and these, in
their turn, wero kept in position by a
system of braces and struts, some
abutting on the floor, some on tho
roof, and others, In fine, against the
opposite wall of the apartment.
Northmour produced some cold meat,
to which I eagerly set myself, and a
bottlo of good Burgundy, by which,
wet as I was, I did not scruple to profit.
I havo always been nn extreme tem
perance man on principle; but It Is
useless to push principle to excess,
nnd on this occasion I bellovc that I
finished three-quarters of the bottlo.
As I ate, I still continued to admire
the preparations for defense.
"We could stand a siege," I Bald at
"Ye es," drawled Northmour; "a
very little one. per haps. It ia not
so much the strength of tho pavilion
I misdoubt; It Is the double danger
that kills me. If we get to shooting,
wild ns the country Is, some ono Is
sure to hear It. nnd then why, then,
It's tho same thing, only different, as
they say, caged by law, or killed by
Carbonnrl. There's tho choice. It Is
a devilish bad thing to have tho law
against you In this world, and so I tell
the old gentleman up stairs. Ho Is
quite of my way of thinking."
"Speaking of that." Bald I, "what
kind of person Is hc7"
"Oh, ho?" cried the other; "he's a
rancid fellow ns far as he goes. I
should like to have his neck wrung to
morrow by nil tho devils In Italy. I
am not in this affair for him. You
take mo? I made a bargain for Missy's
hand nnd I mean to have It, too."
"That, by tho way," bald I. "I un
derstand. But how will Mr. Huddle
stone take my Intrusion?"
"Leavo that to Clara," returned
I could hnvo struck him In tho face
for tills coarao familiarity; but I re
spected tho truce, as, I am bound to
cay, did Northmour, and so long as
the danger continued not a cloud arose
In our relation. I bear him this testi
mony with tho most unfeigned satis
faction; nor am I without pride when
I look back upon my own behavior.
For surely no two men were over left
In a position so invidious and irritat
ing. As soon as I had done eating wo
proceeded to Inspect the lower floor.
Window by window we tried tho dif
ferent supports, now nnd then making
an inconsiderable change; nnd the
strokes of the hammer sounded with
startling loudness through the house.
I proposed, I remember, to mako loop
holes; but be told mo thoy wore al
ready made In tho windows of the up
It was an anxious business, this In
spection, and left mo down-henrted.
There were two doors and five win
dows to protect and counting Clara,
only four of us to defend them against
an unknown number of foos. I com
municated my doubts to Northmour,
who assured me with unmoved com
posure that ho entirely shared them.
"Before morning," said he, "we shall
all be butchered und buried In Graden
Floe. For mo that Is written."
I could not help shuddering at the
mention of tho quicksand, but remind
ed Northmour that our enemies hud
spared me In the wood.
"Do not flatter yourself," said he.
"Then you wero not In tho same boat
with the old gentleman; now you are.
It's the floe for all of us, mark my
I trembled for Clara, and just then
her dear voice was heard calling us
to come upstairs. Northmour showed
mo tho way, and, when ho had reached
tho landing, knocked at tho door of
what used to bo called "My Unclo's
Bedroom," as tho founder of tho pa
vilion had designed It especially for
"Como In, Northmour; come in, dear
Mr. CasslliB," said a voice from with
in. Pushing open tho door, Northmour
admitted mo before him into tho apart
ment. As I came in I could see the
daughter allpplng out by tho side door
Into tho study, which had been pre
pared as her bedroom. In tho bed,
which was drawn back against the
wall, instead of standing, as I had
last seen it, boldly across tho window,
sat Bernard Huddlestono, tho default
ing banker. Little as I had seen of
him by tho shifting light of tho lantern
on tho links, I had no difficulty In rec
ognizing him for tho samo.
Ho had a long and sallow counte
nance, surrounded by a long beard and
Bldo whiskers. Hla broken noso nnd
high cheok-bones gave him somowhat
tho air of a Kalmuck, and his light
eyca shono with tho excitement of a
high fevor. He woro a skull-cap cf
black silk; a hugo Btblo lay open be
foro him on tho bed, with a pair ot
gold spectacles in the place, and a pll
of other books lay on tho stand by hit
side. Tho green curtains lent a ca
daverous shade to his check, and, as
ho sat propped on pillows, his great
staturo was painfully hunched, and his
head protruded till It overhung his
knoes. I bollevo if ho had not died
otherwlao, ho must havo fallon a vic
tim to consumption in tho course ot but
a very few weeks.
Ho held out to me a hand, long, thin
and disagreeably hairy.
"Como In, como In, Mr, Cassllls,"
said he. "Anothor protector ahem!
another protector. Always welcome aB
a friend of my daughter's, Mr. Cub
sills. How thoy havo rained about mo,
my daughter's friends! May God In
heaven bless and roward them for It!"
I gave him my hand, of course-, bo
causo I could not help It, but tho sym
pathy I had been prepared to feel tar
Clara'a father was Immediately soured
by his appearance nnd tho wheedling,
unrenl tones In which bo npoko.
"Cassllls is a good man," said North
mour, "worth ten."
"So I hear," cried Mr. Huddleatone
eagerly; "co my girl tells me. Ah,
Mr. Cassllls, my sin has found me out,
you seo! I am very low, very low!
but I hopo equally penitent. We must
all come to the throne of grace at last,
Mr, Cassllls. For my part, I come late
Indeed, but with unfeigned humility,
"Flddle-de-dee!" said Northmour
"No, no, dear Northmour!" cried the
banker. "You must not say that; you
must not try to shake mo. You for
got, my dear, good boy, you forgot I
may bo called this very night before
His excitement was pitiful to bohold,
and I felt myself growing Indignant
with Northmour, whose Infidel opin
ions I well knew nnd heartily derided,
ns ho continued to taunt tho poor sin
ner out of hla humor of repentance.
"Pooh, my dear Huddlestono!" said
he. "You do yourself Injustice. You
nre a man of tho world insldo and out,
nnd wero up to nil kinds of mischief
before I was born. Your conscience la
tnnncd like South American leather
only you forget to tan your liver, and
that, If you will believe me, Is the scat
of tho annoyance."
"Itogue! roguo! bad boy!" anlil Mr.
Huddleatone, shaking his finger. "I
am no prcclalnn, If you come to thnt;
I always hated a precisian; but I never
lost bold of something better thrutigh
It all. I hnvo been a bad boy, Mr.
Cansllls; I do not Beck to deny that;
but It was after my wife's death, and
you know, with a widower, It's a new
thing. Sinful I won't say so, but
there la a gradation, wo ahnll hope.
And talking of thnt Hark!" ho
broko out BUddcnly, his hand raised
with Interest and terror. "Only the
rain, bleaa God!" he ndded, nfter a
pause, and with Indescribable relief.
For some seconds ho lay back among
the pillows like n man near to faint
ing; then he gathered himself togeth
er, nnd, in somewhat tremulous tones,
began onco more to thnnk mo for tho
share I was prepared to take In his de
fense "One question, sir," said I, when he
had paused. "Is It true that you havo
money with you?"
Ho soemed annoyed at the question,
but ndmlttcd with reluctanco that he
had a little.
"Woll," I continued, "It Is their
money they nro after, la it not? Why
not give It up to them?"
"Ah!" replied he, shaking his head,
"I havo tried that nlrcady, Mr. Cas
sllls; and alas! that It should bo so,
but it is blood they want."
"Huddlestono, that's a little less than
fair," said Northmour. "You should
mention thnt what you offered them
was upward of two hundred thousand

"Physical Culturo for Girls" in tho
Woman's Homo Companion, which
discusses how to secure pretty hands
and to retain a natural grace of mo
