By Robert Louis Stevenson
This was my wife's story , as I drew
' from her among tears and sobs. Her
name was Clara Huddlestonc ; It sound
ed very beautiful In my oars , but not
MO beautiful as that other name of
Clara Cassllls , which she wore during
the longer and , I , thank God. the hap
pier portion of her life. Her-fathcr ,
llernard Huddleatone , had been a pri
vate banker In a very large way of
business. Many years before , bio af
fairs becoming disordered , ho had been
, led to try dangerous , and at last , crim
inal , expedients to retrieve himself
from ruin. All was In vain ; he be
came more and more , cruelly involved ,
and found his honor lost at the same
moment with his fortune.
About this period Northmour had
been courting his daughter with great
assiduity , though with small encour
agement , and to him , knovrlng him
thus disposed in his favor , Bernard
Huddlcstone turned for help In his ex
tremity. It was not merely ruin and
< ltehonor , nor merely a. legal condem
nation , that the unhappy man had
brought on his head. It sceniB he could
have gone to prison with a light heart.
What he feared what kept him awake
night or recalled him from slumber
Into frenzy was sonic secret , sudden
and unlawful attempt upon his life.
Hence , ho desired to bury Ills exist
ence and escape to one of the islands
In the South Pacific , and It was in
Northinour'a yacht , the Red Earl , that
he designed to go.
The yacht picked them up clandes
S tinely upon the coast of Wales , and
had once more deposited them at Gra-
den , till she could be refitted and pro
visioned for the longer voyage. Nor
could Clara doubt that her hand had
been stipulated as the price of pas
sage. For , although Northmour was
neither unkind nor discourteous , he
toad shown himself in several Instances
somewhat overbold In speech and man
ner.I listened , I need not say , with fixed
attention , and put many questions as
to the more mysterious part. It was in
vain. She had no clear Idea of what
the blow was , nor of how it was ex
pected to fall. Her father's alarm was
unfeigned and physically prostrating ,
and he had thought more than once
of making an unconditional surrender
to the police. But the scheme was
finally abandoned , for he was convinc
ed that not evecrthe strength of out-
English prisons could shelter him fron
h3 ? pursuers.
He had lurd many affairs with Italy ,
nad th Italians resident in London ,
in later years of his business ; an-1
these last , as Clara fancied , were
somehow connected with the doom thai
threatened him. He had shown great
terror at the presence of an Italian
seaman on board the Red Earl , and
had bitterly and repeatedly accused
Northmour in consequence. The lat
ter had protested that Beppo ( that was
the seaman's name ) was a capital fel
low , and could be trusted to the death :
but Mr. Htiddlestone had continued
ever since to declare that all was lost ,
that ft was only a question of days ,
and that Beppo would be the ruin of
him yet ,
I regarded the whole story as the
hallucination of a mind shaken by
calamity. He had suffered heavy less
by his Italian transactions ; and hence
the sight of an Italian was hateful to
him , and the principal part in his
nightmare would naturally enough be
played by one of thai nation.
In short , and from one thing to an
other , It was agreed between us that
I should set out at once for the fisher
& village , Graden Wester , as it was call
ed , look up all the newspapers I could
find , and see for myself If there seem
ed any basis of fact for these continued
'S ' ,
The village is one of the bleakest on
that coast , which Is saying much ;
there is a church in a hollow , a mis
erable haven in the rocks , where many
boats have been lost as they returned
from fishing ; two or three score oi
stone houses arranged along the beach
and in two streets , one leading from
the harbor , and another striking out
from it at right angles ; and at the
corner of these two , a very dark and
cheerless tavern , by way of principal
I had dressed myself somewhat more
suitably to my station in life , and at
once called upon the minister in his
little manse beside the grave yard. He
knew me , although It was more than
nine years since we had met ; and
when I told him that I had been Ions
upon a walking tcur , and was belilnd
with the news , readily lent me an arm
ful of newspapers , dating from a montb
back to the day before. With these ]
sought the tavern , and , ordering soms
breakfast , sat down to study the "Hud-
dlestone Failure. "
It had been , it appeared , a very fla
grant case. Thousands of persons were
reduced to poverty , and one In partic
ular had blown out his brains as seer
as payment was suspended. II
was strange to myself that , while ]
read these details , I continued rathei
to sympathize with Mr. Huddlestone
than with his victims , so complete al
ready was the empire of my love foi
my wife. A price was naturally scl
upon the banker's head , and , us the
case was Inexcusable and the public
indignation thoroughly aroused , tl
unusual figure of 750 was offered fo :
his capture. He was reported to have
large sums of money in his possession
One day he had been heard of In
Spain , the next there was sure Intelli
that he was still lurking between
Manchester and Liverpool , or along
tl e border of Wales , and the day after
a telegram would announce his arrival
in Cuba or Yucatan. But in all thl.-j
there was no word of an Italian nor
any sign of mystery.
In the very lost paper , however ,
there was one Itenvnot so clear. The
accountants who were charged to veri
fy the failure had , it seemed , come up
on the tracoH of a very large number
of thousands which figured for some
time in the transactions of the house
of Huddlestone , but which came from
nowhere and disappeared in the same
mysterious fashion. It was only once
referred to by name , and then under
the initials "X. X. , " but it had plalnly
bcen floated for the first time into the
business at a period of great depres
sion some six years ago. The name
of a distinguished royal parsonage had
been mentioned by rumor in connec
tion with this sum. "The cowardly
desperado" such , I remember , was the
editorial expression wus supposed to
have escaped vrith a large part of this
mysterious fund still in his possession.
I was still brooding over the fact ,
and trying to torture it into some con
nection with Mr. Huddlestone's dan
ger , when a man entered the tavern
and asked for some bread and cheese
with a decided foreign accent.
"Siete ItalianoV" said I.
"Si , slgnor , " was the leply.
I said it was unusually far north to
find one of his compatriots ; at which
he shrugged his shoulders , and replied
that a man vculd go anywhere to find
Even as he was speaking , I raised
my eyes , and , casting a glance Into the
street , beheld three men in earnest
conversation together , and not thirty
It was already drawing toward the
close of the day before I had return
ed the newspapers at the manse , and
got well forward on to the links on my
way home. I shall never forget that
walk. It grew very cold and boister
ous ; the wind sang in the short grass
about my feet ; thin rain showers cams
running on the gusts ; and an Immense
mountain range of clouds began to
arise out of the bosom of the sea. The
sun was about setting ; the tide was
low , and all the quicksands uncovered ;
and I was moving along , lost in un
pleasant thought , when I war ? sudden
ly thunderstruck to peiteive the prints
of human feet.
Step by step I followed the prints un
til , a quarter of a mile further , I be
held them die away into the south
eastern boundary of Graden Floe.
There , whoever he was , the miserable
man had perished. One or two gulls ,
who had perhaps seen him disappear ,
wheeled over his sepulchcr with their
usual melancholy piping. The suu had
broken through the clouds by a last ef
fort , and colored the wide level of
quicksands with a dusky purple.
I stood for some time gazing at the
spot , chilled aud disheartened by my
own reflections , and with a strong and
commanding consciousness of death.
I remember wondering how long the
tragedy had taken , and whether his
screams had been audible at the pa
vilion. And then , making a strong resolution
elution , I was about to tear myself
away when a gust fiercer than usual
fell upon this quarter of the beach ,
and I saw , now whirling high in air ,
now skimming lightly across the sur
face of the sands , a soft , black felt
hat. somewhat conical in shape , such
as I had remarked already on the
heads of the Italians.
I believe , but I am not sure , that I
uttered a cry. The wind was driving
the hat shoreward , and I ran round
the border of the floe to be ready
against its arrival. The gust fell , drop
ping the hat for a while upon the
quicksand , and then , snce more fresh
ening , landed It a few yards from
where I stood. I seized it with the in
terest you may Imagine. It had seen
some service ; indeed , it was rustier
than either of those I had seen that
day upon the street. The lining was
red , stamped with the name of the
maker , which I have forgotten , and
that of the place of manufacture , Ven-
edig. This ( it is not yet forgotten )
vas the name given by the Austrians
to the beautiful City of Venice , then ,
and for long after , a part of their do
The shock was complete. I saw
Imaginary Italians upon every side ;
and for the first , and , I may say , for
the last time in my experience , became
overpowered by what is called panic
terror. I knew nothing , that is , to be
afraid of , and yet I admit that I was
heartily afraid ; and it was with a sen
sible reluctance that I returned to
ray exposed and solitary camp in the
There I ate some cold porridge
which had been left over from the
night ijefore , for I was disinclined to
make a fire , and feeling strengthened
and rtassured , dismissed all these
fanciful terrors from my mind , and
lay down to sleep.
How long I may have slept it is im
possible for me to guess , but I was
awakened at last by a sudden , blind
ing flash of light into my face. It
woke me like a blow. In an instant I
was upon my knees. But the light
had gone as suddenly as it came. The
darkness was intense And , as it
was blowing great guns from the sea
and pouring with rain , the noises of
the storm effectually concealed all
My fears were immediately dlvcrte-1
from myself , for I saw tha" I liad
been visited in a mistake ; and I be
came persuaded that some dreadful
danger threatened the pavilion. It re
quired some nerve to Issue forth into
the black and Intricate thicket which
surrounded and overhung the den ; but
I groped my way to the links , drench
ed with r.iln , beaten upon and deafen
ed by the gusts , and fearing at every
atep to lay ray hand upon some lurk
For the rest of the night , which
Ecemed interminably long , I pafroled
the vicinity of the pavilion , without
seeing a living creature or hearing
any noise but the concert of the wind ,
the sea and the rain. A light in the
.tipper story filtered through' cranny
In the shutter , and kept me company
till the approach of dawn.
With the first peep of day I retired
from the open air to my old lair among
the sandhillH , there to await the com
ing of my wife. The morning was
gray , wild and melancholy ; the wind
modferated before sunrise , and then
went about and biew in puffs from the
shore ; the sea began to go down , but
the rain still fell without mercy. Over
all the wilderness of links there was
not a. creature to be see. Yet I felt
sure the neighborhood was alive with
skulking foes. The light had been so
suddenly and surprisingly flashed upon
ray face as I lay sleeping , and the hat
that hnd been blown ashore by the
wind from over Graden Floe , were two
speaking signals of the perils that en
vironed Clara and the party in the
It was perhaps half-past 7 , or nearer
S , before I saw the door open and that
dear figure come toward me in the
rain. I was waiting for her on the
beach before she had crossed the sand
"I have had euch trouble to come ! "
she cried. "They did not wish me ta
go walking in the rain. "
"Clara , " 1 said ; "you are not fright
ened ? "
"No , " said she , with a simplicity
that filled my heart with confidence.
For my wife was the bravest , as well
as the best of women ; In my expe
rience I have not found the two go al
ways together , but with her they did ;
and she combined the extreme of for
titude with the most endearing and
I told her what had happened and ,
though her cheek grew visibly paler ,
she retained perfect control over her
"You see now that I am safe , ' said
I in conclusion. "They do not mean
to harm me ; for , had they chosen , I
was a dead man last night. "
She laid her hand upon my arm.
"And I had no presentiment ! " she
Her accent thrilled me with delight ,
I put my arm abov.t her and strained
her to rny side , and , before cither of us
was aware , her hands were on my
shoulders and my lipa upon her mouth ,
We may have thus stood for some
seconds for time passes quickly with
lovers before we were startled by a
peal of laughter close at hand. It was
not natural mirth , but seemed to be
affected in order to conceal an angrier
feeling. We both turned , though I
still kept ray left arm about Clara's
. waist ; nor did she seek to withdraw
herself ; and there , a few paces off
upon the bench , stood Northmour , his
head lowered , his hands behind his
back , his nostrils white with passion ,
"Ah , Cassilis ! " he said as I disclosed
"That same , " said I , for I was not at
all put about.
"And so , Miss Huddlestone. " he
continued slowly but savagely , "this
is how you keep your faith to youi
father and to me ? This is the value
you set upon your father's life ! And
you are so infatuated with this young
gentleman that you must brave ruiu
and decency and common human cau

How the Last Confederate Flag : Wns Car

The conversation has naturally drift
ed into war channels , and-the majoi
had the floor.
"Well , Col. Mosby , you know , was
a good fighter , but when Gen. Grani
sent him to China the Virginians turn
ed the cold shoulder to him. One daj
he was making a speech in Alexandria
He told the Virginians that they oughl
to vote for him.
" 'Why , ' said the colonel , 'I foughl
all over northern Virginia for foui
years. Talk about my war record !
Why , my war record is a part of the
state's history. Why. gentlemen , ]
carried the last confederate flag
through this very town. '
" 'Yes , ' replied Fitzhugh Lee , 'for ]
was here at the time. '
" 'Thank you for your fortunate rec
ollection , ' gratefully exclaimed Mosby
'It is pleasant to know that there still
live some men who move aside onvj
and testify to the courage of their fel
low beings. As I say , gentlemen , raj
war record is a part of the state's his
tory , for the gentleman here will tel !
you that I carried the last confederate
flag through this town. '
" 'That's a fact , ' said Fitzhugh Lee
'I saw him do It. He carried the con
federate flag through this town , bul
Kilpatrick was after him , and he car
ried it so blamed fast you couldn't have
told whether it was the confederate
flag or a small-pox warning. ' "
