"Send six men to 8 o'clock boat. Come
with one in hack to courtyard of the
Palace Hotel at 7:40."
Mother Norton's face changed not
a whit at the reading, but at the end
"She knows." she said.
"What does it mean?" I asked.
"What is to happen?"
"Don't go, dearie you won't go,
"Yes." I said. "I must go."
"Oh," she wailed; "you may be
killed. You may never come back."
"Nonsense." said I. "In broad day
light, at the Palace Hotel? I'm much
more likely to be killed before I get
Her earnestness impressed me. but
my resolution was not shaken. Mother
Borton rested her head on the table
in despair at my obstinacy.
"Well, if you will, you will." she
said at last; "and an old woman's
warnings are nothing to you. Hut if
you will put your head in the traps I'll
do my best to make it safe after you
git it there. You jist sit still, honey."
And she took the candle and went
to a corner, where she seated herself
at a stand.
Mother Borton appeared to have
some difficulty in arranging her words
to her liking. She seemed to be writ
ing, but the pen did not flow smoothly.
At last she was done, and sealing her
work in an envelope she brought the
flickering light once more to the table.
"Take that." she said, thrusting the
envelope into my hand. "If you find
a one-eyed man when you git into
trouble give him that letter I've writ
ye, anil it may do ye some good. It's
the best I can do fer ye. You'd better
go now and git some sleep. You may
I thanked Mother Borton and
pressed her hand, and she held the
candle as I tiptoed down the stairs,
joining my waiting guards and went
out into tho night.
"Where are Barkhouse and Phil
lips?" I asked, as we turned our faces
toward tho west
Porter gave a low whistle, and as
this failed to bring an answer, fol
lowed it with one louder and more pro
longed. We listened, but no response
"We'd better get out of here." said
Wilson. "There's no telling what may
happen when they hear that whistle."
"Hist! What's that?" said Porter,
drawing me back into a doorway.
There were running steps on the
block above us, and I thought a shad
ow darted from one side of the street
to the other.
"There seem to be friends waiting
for us." said I. "Just get a good grip
of your clubs, boys, and keep your
levolvers handy in case they think
they have a call to stop us. '
'Hold on," said Porter. "There's a
gang of 'cm there. I see a dozen of

"I believe you are right," said I.
peering Into the darkness. I could see
a confused mass, but whether of men
or boxes I could only guess.
"We'll go up there, and you can cut
around the other way," said Porter.
fc "There's no need for you to risk it."
"There's no need for any one to risk
it. We'll cut together."
"This way then." said Wilson. "I
know this part of town better than
you do. Run on your toes." And he
darted past Borton's and plunged into
an alley that led toward the north.
Porter end I followed as quietly as
possible through the dark and noisome
cut-off to Pacific street. Wilson turned I
toward the bay, and crossing the
street at the next corner followed the
main thoroughfare to Broadway.
"I guess we're all right now," he
gasped, as we turned again to the
west, "but we'd best keep to the mid
dle of tho street."
And a little later we were in sight
of the house of mystery which fronted,
forbidding and gloomy as ever, on
Montgomery st.cet, and I was soon in
my room ani in bed for what sleep
I could snatch.
At the earliest light of the morning
I was once cinr astir, but half-refreshed
by my rt and broken rest,
nd made mv ' cs tions for the day.
I ordered Porter, Fitzhugh, Brown,
Wilson, Lockhart and Abrams fo wait
for me at the Oakland ferry- Trent,
who was still weak from his wound, I
put in charge of the home guard, with
Owens, Phillips and Larson as his
companions, and gave instructions to
look for Barkhouse, in case he did
not return. Wainwright I took with
me, and hailing a hack drove to the
There was a rattle of wagons and a
bustle of departing guests as we drove
into the courtyard of the famous hos
telry. I stepped out of the hack and looked
about me anxiously. Was I to meet the
unknown? or was I to take orders
from some emissary of my hidden em
ployer? No answering eye met mine
as I searched the place with eager
glance. Neither woman nor- man of
all the hurrying crowd had a thought
I glanced at the clock that ticked
the seconds in the office of the hotel

I saw that I had been early, and that
it was even now but 20 minutes to the
The minute hand had not swept past
the figure VIII when the door opened,
there was a hurried step and two
women stood before me leading a
child between them. Both women were
closely veiled, and the child was muf
fled and swathed till its features could
not be seen.
One of the women was young, the
other older perhaps middle-aged.
Both were tall and well-made. I looked
eagerly ujon them, for one of them
must be the Unknown, the hidden em
ployer whose task had carried Henry
Wilton to his death, who held my life
in her hands and who fought the des
perate battle with the power and
hatred of Doddridge Knapp. It was to
the younger that I turned as the more
likely to have the spirit of contest, but
it was the older who spoke.
"Here is jour charge. Mr. Wilton,
"she said in a low, agitated voice. As
she spoke I felt the faint suggestion
of the peculiar perfume that had
greeted me from the brief letters of
"I am ready for orders," I said with
"Your orders are in this envelope,"
said the Unknown, hurriedly thrust
ing a paper into my hand. "Drive for
the boat and read them on the way.
You have no time to lose."
The younger woman placed the
child in the hack.
"Climb in, Wainwright," said I, eye
ing the youngster unfavorably. "Will
he travel with us. ma'am? He's rather
"He'll go all right." said the elder
woman with some agitation. "He
knows that he must. But treat him
carefully. Now good-by."
"Oakland ferry, driver." 1 cried as
I stepped into the hack and slammed
the door. And in a moment we were
dashing out into New Montgomery
street, and with a turn were on Mar
ket street, rolling over the rough cob
bles toward the bav.
"Did you see him?" asked Wain
wright, as the hack lurched into Mar
ket street and straightened its course
for the ferry.
"Tom Terrill. He was behind that
big pillar near the arch there. I saw
him just as the old lady spoke to you,
but before I catches your eye, he cuts

who tries to stop us or to cli-,j into
tho hack. 1 must read mv orders."
"All right, s -." said Wainwright,
making the child comfortable between
us. " J
I tnr onen tho -nvelnne and drew
lorth the scented 'paper with Its fa
miliar, firm, yet delicate handwriting,
and read the words: .
"Take the train with your men for
Livermore. Await orders at the hotel.
Protect the boy at all hazards."
Ixclosed in the sheet were gold
notes to the value of $500 a thought
ful detail for which I was grateful
at the outset of such an expedition. I
thrust the money into my pocket and
pondered upon the letter, wondering
where Livermore might be. My knowl
edge of the geography of California
was exceedingly scant, and Livermore
was no where to be found in my geo
graphical memory. rtt-
I had some thought of questioning
Wainwright. who was busy trying, to
make friends with the child, but re
flecting that I might be supposed to
know all about it I was silent. Wain
wrigth's efforts to get the child to
speak were without success. The lit
tle thing might from its size have been
five years old, but it was dumb
frightened, as I supposed, by the
strangeness of the situation, and
would speak no word.
Why was he put thus in my charge?
What was I to do with him? Whither
was I to carry him? I reproached my
self that I had not stopped the Un
known to ask more questions, to get
more light on the duties that were ex
pected of me. But the hack on a
sudden pulled up, and I saw that We
were before the long, low, ugly wood
en building that sat square across
Market street as' the gateway to San
Francisco, through which the tide ol
travel must pass to and from the Gol
"Look out on both sides, Wain-
wright," I cautioned. "You carry the
boy and I'll shoot it there's any trou
ble. See that you keep him safe."
"There was nearly 10 minutes before
the boat left, but the hurry for tickets,
the rush to check baggage, the shouts
of hackmen and expressmen, the rat
tie and confusion of the coming and
departing street cars that centered at
the ferry made us inconspicuous
among the throng as we stepped out
of the hack.
"Here Fitzhugh, Brown," said,
WAS TOO EASILY PERSUADED.
One of the Troubles That Beset Hon
est Man in Politics.
I knew that a certain alderman in a
certain town on Long Island was bit
terly opposed to granting a franchise
to an electric line, and soon after I
heard that ihe franchise had been
granted and that he had voted for it. I
met him on the train and said: "Then
you changed your mind about that
franchise?" "Yes, I had to." he re
plied. "Any particular influence
brought to bear?" "Yes. My wife
persuaded me into it" "And who per
suaded you wife?" "Her brother."
"And was he persuaded?" "Yes. a
lawyer persuaded him." "And the
lawyer?" "Well, I reckon it was the
president of the company that per
suaded him. I stood out and stood
out, but the persuasion was too great."
"I have been told on good authority,"
I continued after a bit, "that the com
pany gave the lawyer $1,500 to per
suade with." "You don't mean it!"
gasped the alderman. "But I do. Yes,
sir, an even $1,500." "Then he's a
durned skunk and ought to be shown
up. He persuaded the whole family
of us for $350 and put the rest in his
pocket! That's what a man gets for
being honest!" St Louis Globe-Democrat
Could Have Their Choice.
Frederick Sandys, described by
Ruskin as the greatest of English
draughtsmen, was once asked before
he was known to fame to paint the
portrait of the mayor of a town, a
most estimable3 grocer. The spokes
man cf the deputation said that the
o-Jimittee was prepared to pay as
aigh as $50 for a good portrait, but on
seeing the artist's face grow long, add

Livermore must be somewhere within
50 miles, and marshaling my troop
about the boy, marched into the wait
ing room, past the doorkeeper, through
the sheds and on to the ferry boat.
I saw no sign of the enemy, and
breathed freer as the last belated
passenger leaped aboard, the folding
gangplank was raised and the steamer,
with a prolonged blast of the whistle,
slid out into the yellow-green water
of the bay.
"Keep together, boys," I cautioned
my retainers. "Has any one seen
signs of the other gang?"
There was a general murmur in the
"Well, Abrams, will you slip around
and see if any of them got aboard?
There's no such thing as being com

In the hurry and excitement of prep
aration and departure the orders I had
pven and received, and the work that
filled every moment, I 'had been con
scious of the uneasy burden of a task
orgotten. I 'had surely neglected
.something. Yet for my life I could not
see that we lacked anything. I had
my seven retainers, the boy was safe
with us, I had my purse, we were well
armed and every man had his ticket to
Livermore. But at last the cause of
my troubles came to my mind.
"Great Scott!" I thought. "It's Dodd
ridge Knapp. That little engagement
"n the stock market is casting its
It seemed likely indeed that the de
mands of my warring employers would
clash here as well as in the conflict
over the boy.
Yet with all the vengeful feeling
that filled my heart as I looked on the"
child and called up the memory of
my murdered friend, I could but feel
a pang of regret at the prospect that
Doddridge Knapp's fortune should be
placed in hazard through any unfaith
fulness of mine.
My uncomfortable reflections were
broken by the clanging engine bells
and the forward movement of the pas
sengers as the steamboat passed into
the slip at Long Wharf.
"Stand together, boys," I cautioned
my men. "Keep back of the crowd.
Wainwright will take the boy, and the
rest of you see that nobody gets near
"All right," said Wainwright, lifting
the child in his arms. "It will take a
good man to get him away from me."
"Where's Abrams?" I asked, noting
that only six of my men were at hand.
"You sent him forward,"' said Lock
hart. "Not for all day' -- '
"Well, he hasn't been seen since you
told him to find out who's aboard."
"It's no use to wait for him," I
growled. "But the next man that

displeasure. And with some difficulty

The train was the east-bound over
land, and it seemed hours before the
baggage was taken aboard and the
signal given to start. I grew uneasy,
but as my watch assured me that only
10 minutes had passed when the en
gine gave the first gentle pull at the
train, I suspected that I was losing the
gift of patience.

GIRL KISSES JUDGE'S FEET.
Receiving Light Sentence for Serious
Offense, Prisoner Is Overcome.
Philadelphia, Pa, A remarkable
scene was 'witnessed in the court of
Oyer and Terminer when Josephine
Darmska, a girl of 19, prostrated her
self before the judge and covered his
hands and feet with kisses.
The girl had been convicted of man
slaughter for causing the death of her
newly born infant on May 24, and
Judge Von Moschzisker had imposed
the lightest sentence possible, which
meant only five months' imprison
ment Throughout the day the girl
had cowered in the dock, a wretched
figure. She is little more than a child
in size, and evidently was in fear of
a verdict of death, having been in
dicted for murder in the first degree.
She was, therefore, overjoyed by her
escape from the gallov, 5.
As she passed the b 'nch on her way
to prison she turned and ascended the
steps. Two court oC'cers rushed to
stop her, but the jud. o waved them
aside and held out h's hand with a
kindly smile as she aporoached. She
seized and kissed it, and then, taking '
the other, also kissed that reverently.
When the girl dropped on her knees
a court official took her by the arm,
but. bursting into tears, she threw
herself on the floor and kissed the
judge's feet. This done she arose,
smiling, and went to prison.

In spite of the Itemized directions

Her voyage was more or less dis

she landed on the other side she had
determined on a course of action. Like
