CHAPTER X. (Continued.)
"Uetter Bend tho young people to
oed, It In now daylight almost," sug
gested tho olders, and thoy carefully
avoided looking at each other.
That some terrible calamity had
happened even Lady Jane, whose firs:
fear had been that the bride had run
away, was fully convinced.
"But, Leila, you will stay by mo?"
Quavered tho mistress of tin houao,
suddenly transformed Into a broken
down old woman.
"I will, dear aunty," nravely said
Leila. "I shall see llttlo Syb safe In
bod, then I shall return to you."
Leila Desmond, slonderly graceful,
soft and caressing, womanly to tho
linger-tips, was yet one of those loyal,
strong natures wo turn to leatl upon
In tho "day of tiouble."
Gervls gave her one look of rever
ence, then he placed his arm round
that mother for v.'iiom ho and this
"perfect woman, nobly planned" had
sacrificed themsdvos so fatally.
Every hour wus bringing homo to
him tho terriblo blunder he had made
In his Hie. Love between man and
woman was God-given, to bo prise I
as sacred; but under the specious pre
text of sacrificing himself for tho good
of lila house, he had torn lovo iro:u
his heart, iind then sold that empty
shell for gold. That It hud been n bit
ter, sinful bargain ho now knew.
Perhaps this impending calamity
which ho was helplessly wait i for
tho now duy to discover might be
hcavon's punishment for what be bad
It was still and quiet In tho old
house. There wns a lull of expectancy
until tho daylight should come to al
low action to bo resumed.
In Leila's room It was silent as the
grave. Beside the whlte-draperled bed
knelt I-clla herself. She was praying,
with frightened tears now no one was
by to see them praying earnestly for
the hapless girl who had shadowed hor
That something dlro had happened
Leila Instinctively knew; but all sho
could do was to pray for help from
"Leila! Sis!" A hoarse, shrill
voico made her spring to her feet.
Close at her side stood Syb, shiver
ing in her little blue dreh3lng-gown,
her face working convulsively.
"I can't keep It from you any long
er! I daro not, though I do hate her
so!" tho deformed girl was suylng, her
teeth chattering as much from terror
us from cold.
Leila gripped the thin wrist, her
breath coming thick and fast. Syb
"I heard a cry, a smothered scream
from the old oak chest, as I wnlkcd
round tho gnllcry; but I hated her so
that I would not speak before! And
when I saw you, through the open door
between our rooms, praying with sobs.
I knew It must be for her. So I must
toll, and you'd hotter bo quick !"
Syb slipped to tho lloor In a swoon.
nut Leila was already gone. With
flying feet she was rushing downstairs
from the third lloor, whero her bed
room and Syb'3 were.
"Gervls! Gervls! Come, and come
quickly! Bring Barnes!" When she
had reached tho gallery she shrieked
loudly. Her voice, sharp with fear,
rang through the old house and made
Gervls leap to his feet.
"It's Leila! Sho has found out some
thing! Mother dear, stay here, I pray
Ho pressed Lady Jane back on her
"No one knows what wo have got
"Bring Barnes! Oh, bo quick!" Le
ila's voice cried again in an agony of
Barnes, tho whitelialred old butlor,
was stiff and rheumatic. It seomod
as though ho would never reach the
top of the wide, crlniBon-covered stair
case, and yet tho old man was doing
his best, though Gervls would fain
havo dragged him up two steps nt a
"Whore aro you, Leila?" ho honrsely
"Hero! here! Quick!"
Round tho curve of the gallery they
found Leila, tearing frantically the
holly and moss decorations from what
had beon a bank of greenery.
, .The blood was trickling down hor
' hands and wrl3ts, as tho holly toro
thorn cruelly. But, unconscious of
pain, Leila continued to pull, until tho
old black-oak chest, which had been
tho foundation of tho green bank, was
"Press tho spring, Barnes! Nobody
In Tcmplo-Deno knows tho secret but
you. Press, for Gladdy's dear sake!"
panted the girl, madly besldo herself.
"Whatever " Barnes was begin
ning, uud fumbling' with his specta
cles, ' "Man, do as you're bid!" shouted
Gervls, catching the Infection of Le
ila's frenzy. And no dr&gged Barnes
Something in his blazing eyes mado
the old man pull.dilmself together.
Ho stooped faruard. With shaking
handB, ho felt along the carvings; but
how slow ho was! The watchors
caught their breaths and shivered,
" 'Tis in thoshamfock, I do mind

knees, and there, among tho curved
loaves and flowers of oak, was a single
dainty saamrock. -&st;v t
It was tho spring! J..S'V,
Pressing It bard as sho could, the
carved lid dirked as It opened aloul
nn Inch. Then Gorvls, with etrour
iirnis, forced It buck on its hinge.., uti'j
a uiullled cry broke from his lips.
Lying huddled In the Imisty dies'
was a little figure in gloaming pllve.

bunches of crushed hotly berrlrs.
It was Olnddy, stiffened and immov
able, but with widely opened, lound

old Barnes, glancing at their white
faces. "8eo yo, Mr. Gervls, there's n
row of air-holes down each side o' the
chost. I saw 'em mado myself In tho
old squire's time, purpose-Uke, in rasa

But Gervls was not llr.tfning. He
and others who had nuhed to the gal
lery were carefully lifting the small
stiffened form. A mounted groom had
already been dispatehrd for a doctor
"But something must be done at
once," said Gervls, as they laid the
unconscious girl on an Indian rug on
tho polished lloor of the gallery.
Somebody was trying to for;e brandy
through the marble white lips.
"Not a drop will go down! What
aro wo to do until tho doctor comes?"
plteously cried Leila, who, kneeling
down, had slipped hor nrm under tho
llttlo sunny-brown bead.
"Fetch Mr. Ansdell!" commanded
Gervls, with a Midden inspiration.
Surely tho American could give some
help in the pressing emergency, other
wise, what was tho valuo of his so
called scientific reputation?
Mr. Ansdell! Everybody then re
membered that, oddly enough, the sci
entist had not been once seen during
the hours of anxious search. It was
curious, to say the least of it. And
still more curious did it appear that
no Mr. Ansdell hurried to tho gallery
In answer to tho summons.
"Never mind, here's young Doctor
Goring himself, which Is better," ejac
ulated Lady Jane, who had struggled
upstairs ruoro dead than nlivo from
sheer fright, and looked on helplessly.
"It's a trance!" nt last pronounced
the doctor, a young man, with all the
latest medical and scientific theories
at his finger-ends. "Sho has been
hypnotized! Who hns done this mis
chief?" He stood up and glanced round upon
the awe-struck group sternly.
There was no nnswer, and Doctor
Goring went on wrathfully:
"Somebody has got to answer for
this night's work! Tho poor young
lady has been brought to death's door,
evidently, by tonic vllo experiment.
Now, then, dear out of this every ono
of you! Excuse my bluntness. Lady
Jane, but this is not a moment for po
llto speech. I've got n life to win back
If I can, and I can't havo a crowd
round me. Your ladyship can remain,
and, yes, I must havo Miss Desmond,
If I've anybody."
Ono by one tho spectators departed
from tho gallery, and tho young med
ical enthusiast set to work, with the
result that In n quarter of nn hour
Glnddy feebly opened her lips and
"I want Leila," was the whisper.
And when sho saw that It was U:llu
hersolf who was supporting her head
tho bride's round eyes closed content
edly. "She will sleep now. Wo must carry
hor to her bed," said Doctor Goring,
"You are wanted, sir, at once," came
an urgent whisper; whllo Gervls, lift
ing his wife In his arms, carried hor
"What! another case?" The doctor
wheeled around, and ho was silently
beckoned to tho quarter of tho house
known as tho bachelors' wing.
Lying back in Ills chair In front of
a writing table, and grasping a folded
paper, was a dead man.
Tho room was in perfect order. There
had been no assault, no murder, no
suicide, so far as one could judgo at
But that death had entered tho half
opon btnro of tho black' eyds, the
dropped jaw, and tho marble hue of'
tho long, lean fingers gripping the
sheet of paper apoke all too clearly.
Little wonder that Paul Ansdell had
failed to join in tho search for tho
missing bride, failed to obey tho sum
mons for his helpful skill.
"Ho hus been dead qulto a couple
of hourB," said Doctor Goring gravoly,
secretly wondorlng what would be the
outcome of this double tragedy.
"You must keep this business from
the ladles as long ns you can," he snld,
turning to Gorvls, who had beon hast
ily sent for. "Thorn must bo an in
quest, of course; and, meantime, I
should tako possession of that folded
paper, See, I'vo managed not to tear
It. You'd best lock It away until you
hand It to the coroner, Mr. Temple
ton." "Why," gasped Gervls, as ho caught
Bight ef tho closo, upright handwrit
ing, "my wlfo wroto that! What vil
lainy Is this? See hero!"
"It was tho laet will and testament

ogal form It n-nnmd everything tho
.cstntor pofsossi-d to Paul Ausddl of
Montreal, revoking nil former wills and
jillrlls. The document was duly
Igned, and tho signatures and ad
tresses of two Americans were append
ed. Not a flaw wns there from beginning
to end of the deed.
"You hold the key that unlocks tho
whole of this night's mystery," hrlolly
said the young doctor. "This unfortu
nate man must bo a reckless ndvou
.uror, whoso wits have put In hl
hands a most dangerous weapon. He

He was right In his surmise, ns tho
nqtiest brought out, hit by bit, partly
.'rom papers belonging to the dead
mnn, partly from the unwilling cvl-
.lonco of Gladdy, who had been more
or less undor hypnotic Influence slnco
the night of the tiro in the snow-shed.
As for the villain's own death, It
was proved to be from natural causes,
ind duo to long-standing heart disease,
that caused n breakdown at the cru
cial moment of IiIh caieer.
But the Jury's verdict was the popu
lar one "By tho visitation of God."
Five years have passed away.
So many changes havo happened to
Temple-Dene and the Templetons that
I-ndy Jnne has come to looK back upon
the da.vH when she woro faded sllka
jnd lived n sorely pinched life as tho
happiest she lias known.
Today she no longer wears her fa
vorite blue, for Krnnrls Templeton has
(Tone to his grave, his heart eaten out
by tho melancholy nothing would dis
pel. So Iidy Jnno wears widow's weeds
and Ins learnt tho old lesson that
"contentment Is great gain."
The dainty American bride, so fra
Slle and highly strung, never managed
to weather the repeated shocks to her
frail system. Like a broken flower sho
withered, until decline aot In.
In India's tender, supporting nrnis,
her weak hands clinging tight round
Leila's soft throat, Gladdy died peace
fully. "Take care of my Gorvls. Lelln. You
will do it bettor than 1," with the won
drous intuition of the dying she whis
pered at the last.
And now that tho years havo gono
round, Gervls begins to think It la
time I.ieila was taking care of him.
Between tho two there Is a perfect
understanding, nnd by and by tholr
wedding bells will ring out; for though
"sorrow endureth for the night, Joy
1b bound to como in tho morning."
The ".lunlnr KcpuMlcn" Alarm tliu City
Detroit Is learning that the "Junior
republics" established in the various
schools of tho dty, which at first
thought was a lino thing, Is having
evil results. The mayor protests and
shows a condition that Is hardly bene
ficial. The citizens of these Junior re
publics, for example, ballotted recontly
on such questions nB t.'.ieso: Do you
favor city ownership of, tho street rail
way system nt the appraised valuo of
117,500,000.' Do you favor the appro
priation of $150,000 for the erection
of another high school building? Do
you favor expansion? (this involving1
a disciifcBlon of the Philippine, ques
tion.) But more than this the "Junior
citizens" developed so rapidly ua to
become lobbyists. Children were ask
ed to Interview aldermen or school In
spectors to urgo appropriations for
Bchools. In short, tho Junior repifbllca
did not confine themselves to theory,
but got into practical politics with a
unanimity nnd dispatch that was
something appalling. Tho Detroit
Free Press protests that Innocent chil
dren that aro already struggling
against nlnety-ntno fads In learning
to read, write and cipher, ought not to
havo their heads further muddled by
an nttempt to master the methods nnd
processos by which tho people of tho
country aro governed. Indiannpolla
