CHAPTER XXXII (Continued.)
Hannibal Instantly sat erect and
looked up at the Judge, his blue eyes
wide with amazement at this extraor
"It Is a very strango story, Hanni
bal, and its links are not all in my
hands, but I am sure because or what
I already know. I, who thought that
not a drop of my blood flowed In nny
veins but my own, live again In you.
Do you understand what I am telling
you? You are my own dear little
grandson " and tho Judge looked
down with no uncertain love and pride
Into the small face upturned to his.
"I am glad If you aro my grand
father, Judge," said Hannibal very
gravely. "I always liked you."
"Thank you, dear lad," responded
the Judge with equal gravity, and then
as Hannibal nestled back in his grand
father's arms a single big tear drop
ped from the end of that gentleman's
'There will be many and great
changes In store for us," continued
the Judge. "But as wo met adversity
with dignity, I am sure we shall bo
able to endure prosperity with equani
mityonly unworthy natures aro af
fected by who Is at best superficial
and accidental. I mean that tho
blight of poverty Is about to be lifted
from our lives."
"Do you mean we ain't going to bo
pore any longor, grandfather?" asked
The Judgo regarded him with In
finite tenderness of expression; be
was profoundly moved.
"Would you mind saying that again,
"Do you mean wo ain't going to bo
pore any longer, grandfather?" re
"I shall enjoy an adequate compe
tency which I am about to recover. It
will bo sufficient for the Indulgence of
those simple and Intellectual tastes 1
propose t- cultivate for tho ruture."
In spite of himself the Judge sighed.
This was hardly In line with bis
Ideals, but the right to choose was no
longer bis. "You will be very rich,
Hannibal. The Qutntard lands your
grandmother was a Qutntard will be
yours; they run up Into the hundred
of thousands of acres hereabout; this
land will be yours as soon as 1 can
, establish your Identity."
"Will Uncle Bob be rich too?" In
"Certainly. How can he be poor
when we possess wealth?" answered
"You reckon he will always live
with us, don't you, grandfather?"
"I would not have It otherwise. 1
admire Mr, Yancy he Is simple and
direct, and fit tor as company under
Iienven except that of fools. Ills treat
ment of yoti has plnccd mo under
everlasting obligations; ho shall Bharo
what wo have. My ono bitter, tin
availing regret Is that Solomon Ma'
hafTy will not bo hero to partake of
our altered fortunes." And tho Judge
"Undo Dob told mo Mr, Mohalty
got hurt In a duel, grandfather?" said
"Ho was as Inexperienced as a
child In tho use of ttrearms, nnd be
had to deal with scoundrels who had
neither mercy nor gohorous foellng
but hla courage was magnificent."
Presently Hannibal was deep In his
account of thoso adventures be had
shored with Miss Detty.
"And Miss Malroy where Is she
now?" nuked the Judge, In the first
pause of tho boy'a narrative.
"Sho's at Mr Ilowen's house. Mr.
Carrlngton and Mr. Cavendish are
hero too. Mrs. Cavendish atayed
down yonder at the Bates' plantation.
Grandfather, It wero Captain Murrcll
who had mo stole do you reckon he
was going to tako me back to Mr.
"I will see Miss Malroy In the
morning. Wo must combine our In
terests are Identical. Thcro should
bo hemp In this for moro than one
scoundrel! I can see now bow crim
inal my disinclination to push mysvlf
to the front has been!" said the Judge,
with conviction. "Never again will 1
shrink from what I know to be a pub
A little later they went down-stairs,
where tho Judge had Yancy make up
a bed for hlmsolf and Hannibal on
tho floor. Ho would watch alone be
side Mahaffy, ho was certain this
would have been the dead man's wish;
then bo said good night and mounted
heavily to tho floor above to resume
his vigil and his musings.
A Crisis at the Court-House.
Just at daybreak Yancy was roused
by tho pressure of a hand on bis
shoulder, and opening his eyes saw
that tho Judge was bending over him.
"Dross!" he said briefly. "There's
every prospect of trouble get your
rifle and come with me!"
Yancy noted that this prospect of
trouble seemed to afford the Judge a
pleasurable sensation; Indeed, ho had
qulto lost his former air of somber
nnd suppressed melancholy.
"I let you sleep, thinking you need
ed the rest," the Judge went on. "But
ever since midnight we've been on the
verge of riot nnd possible bloodshed.
They've arrested John Murrell It's
claimed he's planned a servile rebel
lion! A man named Hues, who had
wormed his way into his confidence,
mado tho arrest. Ho carried Murrell
into Memphis, but tho local magis
trate, Intimidated, most likely, de
clined to have anything to do with
holding blm. In spite of this, Hues
managed to get his prUoner lodged In
Jail, but along about nightfall the sit
uation began to look serious. Folks
were swarming Into town armed to
the teeth, and Hues fetched Murrell
across country to Raleigh"
"Yes," said Yancy.

HrffietAS MtP&tt COMMAnr
"Well, tho sheriff has rerused to
tako Murrcll Into custody. Hues has
him doun nt tho court-house, but
whether or not he Is going to be able
to hold him Is another matter!"
Yancy nnd Hnnnlbal had dressed by
this tlino, and tho Judgo led the way
from tho house. The Scratch lllllcr
looked about him. Across the street
a group of men; tho greater number of
whom were armed, stood In front or
I'cgloo's tavern. Glancing in the di
rection or tho court-house, he ob
served that the square before it hold
other groups. But what Impressed
him more was the ominous sllenco
that was everywhere. At his elbow,
tho Judgo was breathing deep.
"Wo are face to face with a very
deplorable condition, Mr. Yancy.
Court was 'to sit here today, but Judge
Morrow and the public prosecutor
have left town, and as you see, Mur
rell's friends have gathered for a res
cue. There's a sprinkling of the bet
ter element but only a sprinkling.
I saw Judgo Morrow this morning nt
four o'clock I told him I would ob
ligate mysolf to present for his con
sideration evidence of a striking nnd
sensational character, evidence which
would show conclusively that Murrell
should be held to await tho action of
tno next grand Jury this was after n
conference with Hues I guaranteed
his safety. Sir, tho man refused to
listen to me! He showed himself ut
terly devoid of any feeling of public
duty." The bitter sonso of ralluro
nnd futility was leaving the Judge.
The situation made its demands on
that basic faith in his own powers
which remained imbedded In his char
acter. They had entered the court-house
square. On tho stops of tho -building
Betts was arguing loudly with Hues,
who stood In the doorway, rltlo in
"Maybe you don't know this Is coun
ty property?" the sheriff was saying.
"And that you have taken unlawful
possession of It for an unlawful pur
pose? I am going to open them doors
n passel of strangers can't keep
folks out of a building their own
money has bought and paid for!"
While he was speaking, the Judge bad
pushed his way through the crowd to
the foot of the steps.
"That was very nicely said, Mr,
Betts," observed the judge. He
smiled widely and sweetly. The sher
iff gave him a hostile glare. "Do you
know that Morrow has left town?"
the Judge went on.
"I ain't got nothln' to do with Judge
Morrow. It's my duty to see that
this building Is ready for him when
he's a mind to open court In It."
"You are willing to assume the re
sponsibility of throwing open these
doors?" Inquired the Judge affably.
"I shorely am," Bald Betts. "Why,
some of these folks are our leading
The Judge turned to the crowd, and
spoke In a tone of excessive civility.
"Just a word, gentlemen! the sher
iff is right; It Is your court-bouse and
you should not be kept out of It. No
doubt there are some of you whose
presence In this building will sooner
or later be urgently desired. We are
going to let all who wish to enter, but
Per Any LtHr, Grandfatherl"
H . yy K, BJ
I . -"SU -Sia55aw I
I beg yoit to remember that there will
bo 11 vo men Insldo whoso prejudices
are all in favor or law and order."
He pushed past Hues and entered tho
court-house, followed by Yancy and
Hannibal. "We'll let 'em In where 1
can talk to 'em," ho said almost gaily.
"Besides, they'll como in anyhow when
they get ready, bo there's no sense In
In tho court-house, Murrell, bound
hand and foot, was seated between
Carrlngton and the Earl of Lambeth
In tho llttlo railed-off spaco below tho
Judgo's bench. Fear and suffering had
blanched his unshaven cheeks und
given a wild light to his deeply sunk
en cyeB. At sight or Yancy a smoth
ered exclamation broke rrom his lips;
ho had supposed this man dead these
Hues had abandoned his post, and
tho crowd, suddenly grown clamorous,
stormed tho narrow entrance. Ono of
tho doors, borne from its hinges, wont
down with a crash. Tho Judge, a
fierce light flashing from his eyes,
turned to Yancy.
"No matter what happens, this fel
low Murrell Is not to escape if he
colls on his friends to rescue blm be
Is to be shbt!"
Tho hall wnB tilling with swearing,
struggling mon, the floor shook be
neath their heavy tread; thon they
burst into the court-room and saluted
Murroll with a grent shout. But Mur
rell, bound, In rags, and silent, his
lips frozen In a wolllsh grin, was a
depressing Bight, and the boldest felt
something of his unrestrained lawless
ness go from him.
LeBB noisy now, the crowd spread
Itself out among the benches or
swarmed up Into the tiny gallery at
the back of the building. Man arter
man had hurried forward, lntnnt on
passing beyond the railing, but each
had encountered the Judge, formida
ble and forbidding, and had turned
aBlde. Gradually the many pairs of
eyes roving over the little group sur
rounding the outlaw focussed them
selves on Slocum Price. It was in un
conscious .recognition of that moral
force which was his, a tribute to the
grim dlguity of his unshaken courage;
what he would do seemed worth con
sidering. He was charmed to hear his name
pass In a whisper from Up to lip.
Well, it was time they knew him! He
squared his ponderous shoulder and
made a gesture commanding silence.
Battered, shabby and debauched, he
was like some old war horse who
Bnlffs the odor of battle that the wind
incontinently brings to his noBtrils.
"Don't let him speak!" cried a
voice, and a tumult succeeded.
Cool and Indomitable the judca
waited for It to subside. He saw' that
the color was stealing back Into Mur
rell's face. The outlaw was reeling
that he was a leader not overthrown;
these were his friends and followers,
his safety was their safety, too. In
lull In the storm of sound the Judge
attempted to make himself heard, but
his words were lost In the angry roar
that descended on him.
"Don't let blm speak! Kill html
A score of men sprang to their feet
and from all sides came the click of
rifle and pistol hammers as they wero
drawn to the full cock. The Judge's
fate seemed to rest on a breath. He
swung about on his heel and gave a
curt nod to Yancy and Cavendish,
who, falling back a step, tossed their
guns to their shoulders and covered
Murrell. A sudden hush grew up out
of the tumult; the cries, angry and
Jeering, dwindled to a murmur, and a
dead pall of silence rested on tho
Tho very taste of triumph was in
the Judge's mouth. Then came a com.
motion at the back of the building.
A ripple of comment, and Colonel
Fentress elbowed his way through tho
crowd. At sight of bis enemy tho
ludirn'a fnen went from U'hltn tn rod.
while his eyes blazed; but for the mo
ment the force of his emotions left
.him speechless. 'Here and there, as
ho advanced, Fentress recognized a
friend and bowed coolly to the right

You are constipated. You have tak

have tried to select a diet that would
keep your bowels regular. In this you
have failed and were obliged to go
back to your laxntlvea again. This, I
say, has bocn going on many years.
You also have a slight catarrh in the

BREAKING jHJT ON LEG
Hilltop, Kan. "About two years ago
I began to notice a breaking out on my
leg. At first It was very small but
soon it began to spread until It formed
large blotches. The Itching was ter
rible and almost constant Many
nights I could not sleep at all. After
scratching It to relieve the itching It
would burn so dreadfully that I
thought I could not stand It For near
ly a year I tried all kinds of salves
and ointment but found no relief.
Some salves seemed to make It worse
until there wero ugly sores, which
would break open and run.
"One day I saw an advertisement of
Cutlcura Remedies. I got a sample of
the Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Oint
ment and began by washing the sores
with the Cutlcura Soap, then applying
the Cutlcura Ointment twice a day.
I noticed a change and got more Cutl

weeks I was cured. It has healed so
nicely that no scar remains." (Signed)

For many years I have been wrest
ling with the problem of furnishing
the public an Internal catarrh remedy.
Peruna has been the remedy that I
have devised and it has certainly re
lieved many thousand people, yes hun
dreds of thousands of people, of chron
ic catarrh. '
Constipation was my chief difficulty
In treating these cases. I often felt
that It would bo better If a laxative
element wore added to Peruna. I
feared to do bo, however, first because
of the number of catarrhal patients ,
who needed no laxntlvo, and second I '
wob afraid of making such a radical
change In a remedy that was already
doing bo well. ThuB it was that I con
turned V prescribo with the Peruna a
bottlo of Manalin to thoso who needed
a laxative. At laBt, under circum
stances explained In my booklet, I was
constrained to add the laxative ele
ment to Peruna. This constitutes what
Is now known as tho revised Peruna.
Now thoso who take Peruna will,
first, find themselves promptly re
lieved of their constipation. Second,
tho catarrh will gradually disappear.
And once the catarrh is cured tho con
stlpatlon leaves permanently. Then 1Q
you follow the advice given in my
book, you will never have to take pllhJ
any more. Cathartics and laxatives
you can Ignore. You will be perma-,
nently relieved of both your catarrh
and tho constipation.
