Without a word Oliver turned to a
aide table, where atood “a metal baaln
and ew-er, f|a poured water, then
came in the nitu alienee to treat hla
brother * wound. The tal* that l.lonei
told made blam* lm|<o*Bth|e, at le«»t
from Oliver. H* had hut to recall
the moixl in which h« himaelf had
ridden after I’eter Ondolphln: he had
hut to remember, that only the con
>id» ration of R*>«amutid i nly, indeed
ih* consideration of hla future—had
set a curb upon hi* own bloodthlraty
humor.
When h" had washed the wound he
fetched dome table linen from a press
and ripped It Into Mrl|t* with his
dagger; he threaded out ope of these
and mad* a preliminary crisscross
of the threads across the lips of
the wound—for the Mad* had gone
right through the muacles of the
breast, grazing the ribs these threads
would help the formation of a clot
Then with the infinite skill and cun
ning acquired In the course of his
rovings he proceeded to the b&ndag
ing.
That don*, he opened th* window
and flung out the blood tin’ed water
The Moth« w.th which he had mopped
the wound and all other similar evi
dences of the treatment he cast upon
the fire. H» must remove all trace*
even from the eye* of Nicholas. He
had the most implicit trust in the
old servant's fidelity. But the mat
ter was too grave to permit of the
slightest risk He realized fully the
justice of Lionel's fears that how
ever fair the fight might have been,
a thing done thus in secret must be
accounted murder by the law.
Bidding Lionel wrap himself in his
cloak. Sir Oliver unbarred the door,
and went upstairs in quest of a fresh
shirt and doublet for his brother.
On the landing he met Nicholas de
scending He held him a moment In
talk of the sick man above, and out
ward! V at least he was now entirely
composed. He dispatched .him up
stairs again upon a trumped up
errand that must keep him absent
for some little time, whilst himself
he went to get the things he needed.
He returned below with them, and
w hen he had assisted hia brother into
fresh garments, with as little move
ment as possible so as not to disturb
hia dressing of the wound or set it
bleeding afresh, he took the blood
stained doublet, vest and shirt which
he had ripped and flung them, too,
into the great fire.
Wh»n some moments later Nicholas
entered the vast room h» found the
brothers sitting composedly at table.
Had he faced Lionel he would have
observed little amiss with him beyond
the deep pallor of his face. But he
did not even do so much. Lionel sat
with his back to the door, and the
servant's advance Into the room was
rhecked by Sir Oliver with the assur
ance that they did not require him
Nicholas withdrew again, and the
brothers were once more alone.
Lionel at* very sparingly He
thirsted and would have emptied the
measure of posset, hut that Sir Oli
ver restrained him. and refused him
anything hut water lest he should
contract a fever Such a sparing
meal m thev made—for neither had
much appetite—was made in silence.
At last Sir Oliver rose, and with
slow, heavy steps, suggests e of his
humor, he crossed to the fireplace.
He threw fresh logs on the blaze,
and took from the tall mantelshelf his
pipe and a leaden Jar of tobacco. He
filled the pipe pensively, then with
the short Iron tongs seized a frag
ment of glowing wood and applied it
to the herb.
He returned to the table, and stand
inc over hie brother, h® broke at
last th" silence that had now en
dured for some time.
• What.” h® asked gruffly, “was the
cause of your quarrel?”
Lionel started and shrank a little;
between finger and thumb be kneaded
a fragment of bread, his eves upon
it. “I scarce know.” he replied.
"Tuil. that is not ths truth.”
•How-’”
“ T is not the truth. I am not
to be put ofr with such sn answer,
yourself you said that you had
warned him not to cross vour path.
What path was in your mind?”
Lionel leaned his elbows on the
table and took his head In h!s hands.
Weak from loss of blood, overwrought
mentally as well, in a state of revul
sion and reaction also from the pur
suit which had been the cause of
tonight's tragic affair, he had not
strength to withhold the confidence
his brother asked. On the contrary,
it seemed to him that in making such
a confidence, he would find a haven
and refuge in 8!r Oliver._

"But the woman at Malpaa knows,"

"She ll not," cried Lionel. "She dare

"Indeed. I think you are righ*."
agreed his brother w-.th relief. "She
dare not for other reasons, when I
come to think of It. Her reputation
is already such, and so well detested
is she that were It known she had
been the cause, however indirect, of
this, the countryside would satisfy
certain longings that it entertains
concerning her. Tou are sure none
sow you either going or returning.”
"None."

New York
--Day by Day—

By o. o. McIntyre.
New York. April 11.—Thoughts
while strolling around New York:
The lower west side butcher market.
Ruddy cheeked men In white aprons.
Barrels of Belgian hares. Ponderous
slabs of sirloin. The smell of blood.
The paunch-making district of Man
hattan.
The liner pier*. Dana wareuousva.
Luggage racing up escalator*. Cock
ney porter*. Shawled women and
men In corduroy* at the third class
entrance returning to native lands.
Hundreds ff waiting taxis. Tugging
dray horses striking fire against cob
blestone.
The former splendor of old Four
teenth Street In decay. Toung Jewish
g:rls in fur mat*. Brick houses with
Rooms for Rent ' signs Bewhiskered
old men In knitted skull caps Walk
ing as they read the Talmud. A mar
ionette theatre.
The old Chelsea district. Gray faces
in sunless rooms. Symphonies of
color and stark realism. Out cf squa
lor and into the crystal sprightliress
of the avenue. Fine old ladies pro
menading. Suggesting Watteau types
on polished floors
An old cavalier with gold headed
cane and chrysanthemum. His grand
children should be notified. Young
maidens stylish but skittish. There s
Madge Kennedy. Windows dotted with
diamond*. And h;lk effronteries for
ths Newport season.
Mystery, romance, song and tears
in every block. Old Lavendar Jceat.1
hi* shabby satchel. A male movie
star with a purple hat. Not so bad
and not so good. What has become of
all the glad books? Salvationists lift
ing tired voices in the swirl.
The traffic semaphore lights blink
ing in magic unison. Cliff dwellers
with huge shopping bags. Dimmed
and dulled by the crashing grind.
The cigar store catering to women
has closed. And a hair bobbing parlor
moves in.
New York taxi driver* cow have
a weekly Journal which ohronicles
the doing* of their world. It 1* *old
moetly at midnight when the driver
ha* time to do a little reading at the
curb. The contributions reveal that
many are poets, artists and writers
of no mean ability.
Th« editor of a fashion maputine
waa given a dinner recently by mem
bers of hi* staff. He had prepared
a speech and placed the typewritten
copy in the Inner pocket of hi» din
ner jacket. Before the dinner there
were several rounds of whatever it is
they served and the editor became a
bit fluffed. Pom* of the guests took
the speech out of his pocket and
substituted another. After he had
been euloglred and arose to speak he
took the speech from his pocket. He
began reading: Now is the t:rr.e f
all good men to come to the aid of
their party. The quick brown f x
jumped over the little red hen." The
entire speech was made up of these
two sentences and h# had read a ha''
page before he reallred he had been
tricked^ H# sat down in utter con
fusion.
It it very difficult these day* to
j prov ide capable after dinner speakers
for bsnquets. The best speakers of
the town will apeak but thev are a’sV
