She smiled a little , then dolefully

"I can tell you only two things about
him. Ho was young , and he was not

I should think ho was several years
older than I. "
"You would not know him again If
you saw him ? "
"I am afraid not. You see I saw him
only Just then. "
"Oh that was the only time you saw
him ? "
"I think PO , but he may have seen me
afterward without my knowing It. "
"Please explain. "
"Well , that evening as I was in my
room , crying my eyes out , my uncle
sent a message to say I was to come
down into the drawing-room. Ho had
never said such a thing before. I sent
back word that I would not come. He

passion. I was terribly frightened of
him , but I wan now thoroughly roused ,
and I still said I would not come. Ho

blows , shook me and Hung mo to the

mo to flee. If I stayed ho would strike
me again. I tied up an many things as
I thought I could carry in a towel ,

on the most secluded side of the house ,

kitchen windows looked out upon it.

The last thing which I distinctly re

"Who Is Dr. Stelling ? " asked Mr.
"My old friend. I should have died
but for him. "
"Well what more ? What Is the

"Tho next thing that I remember is

by the altar , and , as far as I can re
call , was married. I don't think I ob
jected. I don't think I understood. I
was like a person In a dream. I was
told afterwards to write my name , and
I did. I know my name then. I don't
remember anything more about it. 1
can't recall who was with me , or any
thing. I remember at last waking up
in a strange room , beautifully clean ,
but very small , and seeing some 0110
bending over me. "
' "Who arc you ? ' I said.
" 'All right , my dear , ' she responded ;
'you're with friends. '
"It was a very fltrango , gradual com
ing back to life. I was kindly oh , so
kindly waited upon by Mrs. Stolllng
and her daughter , but I was complete
ly bewildered. I could not remember
a word of what I am telling you now.
I was constantly asking who I was ,
and why I could not remember the
time before I was 111. Dr. Stelling told
mo not to trouble , and that everything
would come In time. Meanwhile my
name was the dUIlculty. I had 'M : L. '
marked on my clothes , which were
all new , and , when Dr. Stelling found
me , I had a piece of paper in my pocket
on which I had written thuae words.
I have the paper here. "
"I should like to sec It , " said Mr.
Martlneau eagerly , stretching out his

The young man read It through and
shook his head. There was no date on
the letter no address. It had evident
ly been written In a hurry , and by a
perj-on In a state of nervous excite
"So much , " said Marguerite , "for
what I can tell you of myself. Now
for what Dr. Stolling tolls me. Ho had
boon to the Great Western Railway
station to sco his son off on a long
Journey , and , the train having gone ,
lie was strolling up the platform when
he noticed several people stop and
stare in ono direction , and presently
ho saw mo walking up and down , with
the air ot a person who had not the
least Idea where she was.
" 'Who is that ? ' asked Dr. Stolllng
of a porter.
" 'Lady Just come In , sir. Seems out
of her mind. We don't know what to
do with her. Bettor send for the po
lice , d'you think , sir ? "
" 'I'll speak to her ; I'm a doctor , '
said Dr. Stelling.
"It was Just like him ho Is always
noble and humane ! He ciinio up to mo
and spoke to mo very gently , asking
mo if I had lost my friends. I said
'Yes , ' and at first ho thought that I
was sane , only lonely and frightened.
Ho asked mo where I came from , but I
could not remember In the least. Ho
says that I cried In my eagerness to
tell him ; of course , nobody could help
him , as the tickets had all been col
lected at Wcstbourno Park , Ho saw
then that I was really very ill , and his
anxiety to ascertain the names of my
friends increased. I told him that I
had been married some days ago , and
that when wo returned from church
my undo had said to mo that he was
suddenly called away and would leave
mo in the care of my husband , who
was out for a walk. Ho had departed ,
and I had been alone over since. I
had come to London to find them all.
I had written to Cathie , but could not
remember where she lived , 30 had boon
unable to post the letter *
"So much ho had gleaned from mo In
the waiting-room , where ha had token
me wh ° n 1 lapsed Into utter uncon
sciousness. Ho made Ills resolution
quickly , put mo into a cab , and drove
mo to his own hotiso. I had brain
fever , and , as he fully expected , when
I recovered I had entirely forgotten
my meeting with him , and , indeed , ev
erything that had taken place. In my
pocket , besides the letter to Cathlo ,
they found a couple of biscuits ,
wrapped In this. "
She held out another fragment of ,
paper for Mr. Martlncau's Inspection.
It was apparently a blank half sheet ]
torn off a letter , and at the top was
written , In an ugly sprawling hand

Just picked up from somewhere to wrap
my biscuits in. It may not refer to
my father at all , but Dr. Stelling
thought It worth while to try. .It
would bo Interesting to find my fath

"It certainly would , " said Mr. Mar
"The Stelllngs advertised , " she con
tinued , "saying that a certain Marguer

Still there was no result. Ono day ,
when I was able to walk about , cling
ing tightly to Mary Stelllng's arm ,
we took a walk , Intending to go to the
now public gardens Just opened near
where we lived. As we passed a row
of squalid looking houses a nun came
out and passed us swiftly. The sight
touched a chord In my memory. Past
events came back ; I was able to tell
them nil 1 have told you to-day , but
from the time of my falling out of the
window to the time I awoke in the
Stelllngs' house all was a blank. I
could tell them nothing ; Indeed , so
vague and Indistinct was this Idea of
my marriage that I should have boon
satisfied that it was a delusion had it
not been for one thing. "
"Yes. What was the one thing ? "
She laid a wedding ring on the table
Mr. Martlneau drew a long breath.
"That seems tangible , " ho said.
"Dreadfully tangible ! " she ex
claimed , with a shudder. "Can you
wonder that I feel I must know all ?
Heaven knows that I would sooner die
than return to my uncle but I must
and will hear the rights of this dis
graceful fraud ! It is a mystery , is it
not ? "
"It is the strangest thing I ever
heard , and the most pitiful ! "
"The Stellings are very badly off , "
went on Marguerite. "When they found
me I had only a few coppers In my
pocket I had evidently spent what
ever I possessed on my railway ticket.
I could not bear to live on their kind
ness. I did fancy needlework for a
time , managing to contribute my mlto
toward the housekeeping till I was
quite strong. One day , in an inspired
moment , I painted some little cards
for ball programmes , and sent them
to a largo West End shop. They caught
the public taste. Soon I had as many
orders as I could execute , and I began
to work hard. I not only kept my
self I put by a little ; and in our hap
py , busy life wo almost forgot that I

forms are wrought In many and cu
rious ways , but seldom In a stranger
manner than that in which a certain
drunkard was sobered. This man had
wandered at midnight Into a low sa
loon. Ho gave his order , and then
leaned against the bar for support. A
man standing near by took from ono
pocket an addressed envelope and from
another a stamp , which ho moistened
with his tongue. Instead of adhering
to the envelope , as the man intended ,
the stamp slipped from his fingers
and fluttered to the floor. The tlppior
saw it fall and staggered forward to
pick it up. Just as he was about to
grasp It the stamp darted In a zigzag
course toward the side wall , like a
scared thing. Filled with astonish
ment , the drinker drew back and Intently -
tontly watched the bit of paper , which
upon reaching the wall , began to a'-
cend. As It ascended , the tippler's
face grow more Intent , his body more
rigid. Ho saw nothing but the myste
rious , moving thing. His mind was
soggy from years of ceaseless drink
ing. Ho thought that the animated
stamp was a warning. At the top ol
the wainscoting the stamp stopped
squatted as If for a moment's rest be

a dart toward the tippler's haggard
faco. The trembling sot saw it stop
saw it hesitate and leap. Ho was un
questionably doomed if ho contlnuet
longer to drink to excess ; the stamp
had boon given life to warn him. So
It scorned to him. With a pitiful yel
of fear and determination , ho rushet
from the saloon. From that eventfu
night until ho died , In prosperous olr
oumstances , recently , the man novo
swallowed a drop of liquor. The
moistened stamp had fallen upon a
cockroach's back and stuck thro.

In the mater of exhibits the First

has been most fortunate. When the
exposition was first talked of some
doubt was expressed as to the possibil
ity of securing a sufficient number of
attractive exhibits to fill the Immense
buildings , but that doubt 1ms been ob'
soured by the necessity of cconomlzlnj
space In order that all who nppllo
might bo accommodated. The Unite
States government building contaltW of
a special exhibit. The ontlre contents
of the famous Llbby Prison War Mu"
Bourn are displayed. It Is composed of pu-
the relics of the wars of this nation ,
and Is of great historical importance
and value. In ono part of the building
will bo shown an immense collection
of the relics and trophies of the late
war with Spain ; the campaign in Cu
ba and Porto Rico. Froia the Philip
pine Islands will come four car loads
of curious and interesting exhibits ,
rollcs of Dowey's famous victory , tro
phies of the war in and about Manila ,
and interesting objects collected from
various parts of the islands. In addi

ing the fisheries exhibit will bo shown.
