CHAPTER XXIX. Continued.
Jh. how thankful I am!" cried
Mrs. Knapp. "There is a weight of
an. iety off my mind. Can you imag
ine what I have been fearing in the
last month?"
"I had thought a little about that
myself." 1 confessed. "But we are
not yet out of the woods. I am afraid."
"Hark! what's that?" said Mrs.
Knapp apprehensively.
The carriage was now making its
wr.y through the bad stretch in the
lane, and there was little noise in its
progress.
"1 heard nothing." I said, putting
down the window to listen. "What
W.13 it?"
' I thought it was a shout."
'''here was no noise but the steady
splash or horses' hoofs in the mud
and the sloppy, shearing sound of the
wheels as they cut through the wet
soil.
As we bumped and groaned again
th.ongh the ruts, however, there arose
in the distance behind us the fierce
barking of the dogs, their voices
in anger and alarm.
There was a faint halloo, and a wild
er barking followed. Then my ear
oaught the splashing of galloping
hoofs behind, and in a moment the
ma a of the house rode beside us.
"They've come," he said, "or, any
how, somebody's come. I let the dogs
loese and they will have a lively time
for a while."
A few yards more brought us to the
main road, and once on the firm
ground the horses trotted briskly for
ward, while the horseman dropped be
hind the better to observe and give
the alarm.
I leaned out of the window. Only
the deadened sound of the hoofs of our
own horses, the deadened roll of our
own carriage wheels, were audible in
the stillness of the night. Then I
thought I heard yells and faint hoof
beats in the distance, but again there
was silence except for the muffled
noise we made in our progress.
"Can't we drive faster?" asked Mrs.
Knapp, when I made my report
"I wouldn't spoil these horses for
$500," growled the driver when I
passed him the injunction to hasten.
"It's $1,000 for yoa if you get to the
wharf ahead of the others," cried Mrs.
Knapp.
"And you'll have a bullet In your
hide if you don't keep out of gunshot
of them," I added.
The double inducement to haste had
its effect and we could feel the swifter
motion of the vehicle under us. and
see the more rapid passage of the
trees and fences that lined the way.
The wild ride appeared to last for
ages. The fast trot of the horses was
a funeral pace to the flight of my ex
cited and anxious imagination. What
if we should bo overtaken?
At last the houses began to pass
more frequently. Now the road was
broken by cross streets. Gas lamps
appeared, flicking faint and yellow in
tha ziorning air. We were once more
within city limits. "The panting horses
never slackened pace. We swept over
a long bridge, and plunged down a
shaded street and .the figure, of the
nruoni rTT-rrTrirrrvvviriri'rinTv'ifvyvvvv'in i "r""" ------
horseman was the only sign of life
behind us.
Of a sudden there sounded a long
roll, as of a great drum beating the
reveille for an army of giants. The
horseman quickened his pace and gal
loped furiously beside us.
"They're crossing the bridge," he
shouted.
"Whip up!" I cried to the driver.
"They are only four blocks behind us."
The hack swung around a few cor
ners, and then halted.
"Here we are!" cried Dicky Dahl at
the door. "You get aboard the tug
and push off. Jake and I will run up
to the foot of the wharf. If they come,
we can keep 'em off long enough for
you lo get aboard."
The tug was where it lay when w.e
left, and at my hail the captain and
'imrjZWms J2S J&&(PJ2&j3S077ZE23:
his crew of three were astir. It was a
moment's work to get Mrs. Knapp and
her charge aboard.
"Come on!" I cried to Dicky and his
companion. And as the lines were
cast off they made a running jump
on to the deck of the tugboat and the
vessel backed out into the stream.
When the mist and darkness had
blotted out shore, wharves and ship
ping, the tug moved at half-speed
down the channel. I persuaded the
captain that there was no need to
sound the whistle, but he declined
gruffly to increase his speed.
"I might as well be shot as run my
boat ashore," he growled, with a few
seamanlike adjectives.
I did not know of any particular
reason for arguing the question, so I
joined Mrs. Knapp.
"Thank God, we are safe!" she said,
with a sigh of relief.
"We shall be in the city in half an
hour, if that is safety," I said.
"It will "be safety for a few days.
Then we can devise a new plan. I
have a strong arm to lean on again."
Returning to. the deck I found that
the light of the morning was growing.
Vessels were moving. The whistles
of the ferry boats, as they gave warn
ing of their way through the mist, rose
shrill on the air. The waters were
still, a faint ripple showing in strange
contrast to the scene of last night.
"There's a steamer behind us," said
Dicky Dahl, with a worried look as I
joined him. "I've been listening to it
for five minutes."
"It's a tug," said the captain. "She
was lying on the other side of the
wharf last night."
"Good heavens!" I cried. "Put on
full steam, then, or we shair be run
down in the bay. It's the gang we are
trying to get away from."
The captain looked at me suspici
ously for a moment, and was inclined
to resent my interference. Then he
shrugged his shoulders as though it
was none of his business whether we
were lunatics or not so long as we
paid for the privilege, and rang the
engine bell for full speed ahead.
We had just come out of the Oak
land Creek channel and the mist sud
denly thinned before us. It left the
bay and the city fair and wholesome
in the gray light as though the storm
had washed the grime and foulness
from air and earth and renewed the
freshness of IK. We had come but a
few hundred yards into the clear air
when out of the mist bank behind us
shot another tug.
At the exclamation that broke from
us our captain for the first time show
ed interest in the speed of his boat
and whistled angrily down to his en
gineer. "We can beat her," he -.J, with a
contemptuous r'-rnt en the "her."
"That's your business," I returned,
and walked aft to v-'iere Mrs. Knapp
was standing. hal.-..ay up the steps
from the cabin.
"Can they catch us?" inquired "Mrs.
Knapp, the lines tightening about her
mouth.
"I think not the captain says not.
I should say that we were holding our
own now."
At this moment a tall, massive fig
ure stepped from the pilot house of the
pursuing tug and shook its fists at us.
The huge bulk, the wolf-face, just dis
tinguishable, distorted, dark with rage
and passion, stopped the blood and I
felt a faintness as of dropping from a
height
"Doddridge Knapp J" I cried.
Mrs. Knapp looked at me in alarm
and grasped the rail.
"No! no!" she exclaimed. "A thou
sand times no! That is Elijah Lane!"
1 gazed at her in wonder. Not Dodd
ridge Knapp! Had my eyes played me
false?
"Do you not understand?" she said
in a low, intense tone. "He is Elijah
Lane, the father of the boy. An evil,
wicked man mad truly mad. He
would kill the boy. He killed the
mother of the boy. I know, but it is
not a case for proof not a case that
the law can touch. And. he hates the
bey and pie!"
"But why does he want to kill him?"
"You do not understand. The boy
inherits a great fortune from his
mother. Mr. Knapp and I are left
trustees by the mother's will. If he
had control of the boy, the boy would
die; but it would be from cruelty, dis
ease, neglect. It would not be murder
in the eye of the law. But" I know
what would happen. Ob, see the
wretch! How he hates me!"
I was stunned with the words I had
heard. They made much plain that
had puzzled me, yet they left much
more in darkness; and I looked blank
ly at the figure on the other tug. It
was truly a strange sight The man
was beside himself with rage, shout
ing, gesticulating and leaping about
the deck in transports of passion. He
showed every mark of a maniac.
ADOLESCENCE OF THE DOLLAR.
Present Unit of Value Has Had Many
Forms and Shapes.
The dollar took 'some rounding. Nor
did it formerly ring true, but, much
alive, simply gave a bleat or bellow.
Cattle, among country folk, at one
time constituted the dollar, while
primitive man generally made use of
any article sufficiently abundant for
the standard payment of all merchan
dise, writes R. Holt Lomax in Harper's
Weekly. Thus, In ancient Greece, a
large bronze tripod had the value of a
dozen oxen. A good hard working wo
man, on the other band, was given in
exchange for only four such beasts.
When metal took the place of money,
the dollar clung to its traditions, and
coins were still called after live stock.
Thus, "pecunia," applied to metal
money, derived its origin from "pecus"
(cattle). From the custom of counting
heads of cattle came the present des- j
ignation of a sum in cash capital, or
"capita" (heads). In Sanscrit roupa,
(herd, flock) made roupya, or the In
dian rupee, while the ingots of elec
trum, or admixture of gold and silver,
when first in use as money, bore the
impress of an ox or cow. Not clumsy,
but too fragile, were the shells in use
as money by the negroes of Africa,
and throughout ancient Asia, where
the natives, taken by its beauty, gave
the shell a money value.
Violin as a Hair Restorer.
It is now a scientifically proved fact
that music exercises a great influence
on the growth of the hair. It is with
good reason that great musicians,
such as Paganini, Lists mi Paderew
ski, are represented wit!: j. growth of
hair which Ab.uiom might have en-i-jd.
Science has proved that stringed
instruments have a favorable influence
on the growth of the hair, while brass
instrucats act in the opposite direc
tion. rery one ha., probably ob
served that a bald violinist is as rare
as a bald horn player is common.
Wood instruments, such. as the flute.
seem to have 'no pronounced influence
either way.
'I
Suddenly he drew a revolver and
sent shot after shot in our direction
We were far beyond the reach of 'a
pistol bullet, but Mrs. Knapp screamed
and dodged.
"How- he hates me!" she cried
again.
When the last shot was gone from
his revolver the man flung the weapon
in frenzy, as though he could hope to
strike us thus.
Then a strange thing happened,
whether due to the effort he had made
In the throw, or to a lurch of the tug
in the waves we left behind us, or to
a stumble over some obstruction, I
could not say. But we saw the man
suddenly pitch forward over the low
bulwarks of the tug into the waters of
the bay.
Mrs. Knapp gave a scream and cov
ered her eyes.
"Stop the boat!" I shouted. "Back
her!"
The other tug had checked its head
way at the same time, and there was a
line of six or seven men along its side.
"There he is!" cried one.
The captain laid our tug across the
tidal stream that swept us strongly
toward Goat Island. Then he steamed
slowly toward the other tug.
"He's gene," said Dicky.
The other tug seemed anxious to
keep away from us, as in distrust of
our good intentions. I scanned the
waters carefully, but the drowning
man had gone down.
Then, rising not 20 feet away, float
ing foi a moment on the surface of the
water, I saw plainly for the first time,
the very caricature of the face of
Doddridge Knapp. The strong wolf
teatures which in the King of the
Street were eloquent of power, intel
lect and sagacity, were here marked
with the record of passion, hatred and
evil Hfe. I marveled now that I had
ever traced a likeness between them.
"G5ve me that hook!" I cried, lean
ing over the side of the tug. "Go
ahead a little."
One of the men threw a rope. It
passed too far, and drifted swiftly be
hind. I made a wild reach with the hook,
but' it was too short. Just as I thought
I should succeed, the face gave a con
vulsive twitch, as if in a parting out
burst of hate and wrath, and the body
sank out of sight.
I stood half-bewildered, with a
bursting sense of relief, by Mrs.
Knapp. At last she took her hands
from before her eyes and the first
rays of the sun that cleared the tops
of the Alameda Hills touched her calm,
solemn, hopeful face.
"A new day has dawned," she said.
"Let us give thanks to God."
CHAPTER XXX.
The End of the Journey.
For a few minutes we were silent.
Water and land and sky started into
new glories at the touch of the rising
sun. The many-hilled city took on the
hues of r. fairy picture, and the win
dows gleamed with the magic fires that
were liaphen back In greeting to the
god of day.
It seemed scarcely possible that this
was the raging, tossing water we had
crossed li.st night. And the fiery
scene of passion and death we had
just witnessed was so foreign to its
calm beauties that I could believe it
had happened elsewhere in some
dream of long ago.
I was roused by the voice of Mrs.
Knapp, who sat at the head of the
cabin stairs looking absently over the
water.
"I have not dealt frankly with you,"
she said. "Perhaps it is better that
you should know, as you know so
much already. I feel that I may rely
on your discretion."
"I think I can keep a secret," I re
plied, concealing my curiosity.
"I should not tell you if I did not
have full confidence." Then she was
silent for a minute. "That man," she
continued at last, with a shudder in
her voice, "that man was Mr. Knapp's
brother."

SAVAGERY OF A CENTURY AGO.
Poor Woman's Execution Then a Mat
ter of Little Moment
The hanging of a woman, which In
these days calls forth public protests,
was apparently a matter of indiffer
ence to our grandfathers and grand
mothers, says the London Chronicle. It
was in the nineteenth century that a
woman found guilty of some trifling
offense was sentenced to death. By
chance the warrant for her execution
was not sent to the high sheriff, and
she remained in prison for about three
years, acting as a jail washerwoman,
and occasionally, as a favor in ac
knowledgement of her good behavior,
going out, as was then the custom, as
washerwoman to private houses. But
a clerk looking through the home of
fice records found the warrant that
had never been dispatched, and it was
thereupon promptly forwarded to the
sherit for due process. The woman
was found by the turnl.: y at the wash
tub in a house in the tc-rn Aylesbury.
"Well, missus;" said 1 e. "you are to
be hanged. The warrart has come at
last, and we must carry the sentence
out to-morrow morning at the latest"
"Werry well, then," the wretched
woman submissively replied, "I sup
pose I must go," and having washed
the soapsuds off her arms departed
with the official. She was duly hanged
next morning. From all irhich it would
seem that barely a century separates
us from a condition of primitive bar
barism. Queer Breed of Chickens.
"It does me good," said the girl who
hzs just returned, "to get back to a
country where they serve a whole
chicken." You know then where yoa
are at At my pension in Paris they
bad chicken for Sunday dinner. That
is, .they called it chicken, but a lot
of us were of the opinion that it was a
giant centipede. Every Sunday, while
I was there they put a lej in each
plate when the chicken course came
around. There were 13 of us. Did
you ever see a chicken with 13 legs?"
DOW MISSOURI MY
CANADA'S RESPECT FOR LAW
AND -ORDER THE SUBJECT
FOR FAVORABLE COMMENT.
Those who have visited Canada are
always impressed with the strict ob
servance that is given to the laws
of the country, and the order that is
preserved everywhere. The editor of
the Gazette, of Fulton, Nev., recently
paid a visit to Western Canada. He
was so impressed with the conditions
that he saw everywhere, that on his
return home he was inspired to write
as follows: "Reverence and respect
for law is a dominant characteristic
of the Canadian people. Wherever
one goes in Canada, whether east or
west the law is supreme. The law is
obeyed because it is law,' seemingly,
and not because violation carries a
penalty. Canada enforces the law and
makes every law effective. No coun
try is more free than' Canada. In name
Canada Is a dependency of the Brit
ish Crown. In fact, -it Is almost a
third republic. All its taxes are voted,
collected and expended by the Domin
ion and the provinces. The nominal
head of the Government Is 'the Gov
ernor General, appointed by the Eng
lish Crown. Practically his only au
thority is to veto the acts of parlia
ment, which he scarcely ever exer
cises. Canada gives nothing to the
support of the English government or
the English king.' She gives England
the advantage in trade regulations and
tariff laws, and in return receives the
protection of the British army and
navy. Canada enjoys the protection
without sharing in the expense.
"The sale of liquor is strictly regu
lated. None but hotel-keepers may
obtain license to vend the stuff, and
before a license can be secured an ap
plicant must prove good character and
.provide twenty rooms in his tavern
for the accommodation of guests. The
bar-rooms close at 7 o'clock Saturday
evening and remain closed until Mon
day morning. The schools and churches
in Western Canada excite admiration.
Though new, Western Canada is not
godless. The finest buildings in every
town are the churches. Next come
the school houses."
Turning to the wheat fields of West
ern Canada, the editor of the Laurel
(Neb.) Advocate of Sept. 17th says:
"I have often thought that the
reason that the characters of Charles
Dickens are so impressed upon the
minds of his readers is because he
dwells upon them so long and de
scribes them so minutely that by the
time one has waded through his long
drawn out stories they are so burned
into his brain lhat he can never forget
them. It was this way with the Cana
dian wheat fields. Had we only seen
a few the memory of them might
have worn away in time, but a long
drawn out experience such as we had
is sure to leave an uneffaceable im
pression. Never while we live shall
we forget the Canadian wheat fields.
They call it the granary of the Brit
ish Empire, and we don't blame 'em.
Nobody who has seen these wheat
fields can wonder at their enthusiasm."
It is worth while to record that these
fields have now been harvested, and
in many cases yields as high as forty
and fifty bushels per acre have been
marketed, while the general average
has been away above 20 bushels per
acre. Oats and barley have also
done well, and the profits, the prices
of grains being high, have paid the
entire cost of the farms of many a
farmer. There Is now 160 acres of
land given away, in addition to the
160 acres that the homesteader may
purchase at $3.00 an acre. Particu
lars of this as well as the lowest rail
way rates will be given by the Cana
dian Government Agent
