CIIA1TEH XXXVI. Continued.
In flno I was BO far from being persuaded
that Smith hail expected company that 1
gravely suepected that he had made quite
other arrangements of the most perfidious
character. And an the norses' hoofs rang
monotonously on the hard road , and wo rose
nnil fell In the saddle nnd I peered forward
Into the gloom , fearing all things and douoi-
tng all things , for certain I feared and
duobtcd nothing so much n I did the dark
and secret man beside me , whose scheming
brain , spinning plot within plot , each darker
and more Involved than the other , kept all
my Ingenuity at a stretcn to overtake the
final end 'and purpose ho had at heart.
Indeed , I despair of conveying to others
how gravely this somber companionship and
moru than somber uncertainty aggravated
the terrors of n Journey that nt the best of
times must have been llt.tle to my taste. To
the common risks of the road , deserted at
that hour by all save cut-purses end rogues ,
was added a suspicion , as much more haras
sing than these as unseen dangers ever sur
pass the known. It was In vain that I
strove to divert my mind from the figure
by my side ; neither the bleak heath above
Greenwich whence wo looked back at the
reddish haze that canopied London , and for
ward to where the Thames marshes stretched
eastward under night nor the gibbet on
Dartford llrcnt , where a body hung In
chains , poisoning the air , nor the light that
shone dim und solitary far to the left -across
the river , und puzzled mo until hu told me
that It was Tilbury neither of these things ,
I say , though they occupied my thoughts by
turns and for a moment had power to drive
him from my mind , or divert my fuars to
dangers more apparent. And In this mood ,
now glanclug askance at him , and now mov
ing uneasily under his gaze , I might have
ridden to Rochester If my ear had not caught
I think when wo were two or three mllea
short of the city the sound of a horse trot
ting fast on the road behlm ! us.
At first It followed so faintly on the
breeze that I doubted , thinking It might be
cither the echo of our hoofs , or a pulse beatIng -
Ing In my ears. Then on a hard piece of
ground It declared Itself unmistakably ; nnd
again as suddenly It died away.
At that I spoke Involuntarily. "Ho has
stopped , " I mid.
Smith laughed In his teeth. "He Is crossIng -
Ing the wet bottom , fool , by the creek , " ho
And before I could answer him the dull
sound of a horse galloping fast but moving
on the turf that ran alongside the road
proved him to he right. "Draw up ! " ho whis
pered , In something of a hurry , and then as I
hesitated , "Do you hear ? " ho continued ,
sharply seizing my rein. "What do you fear ?
lo ) you think that night birds prey on night
blrdo ? "
Whatever I feared , I feared him more ,
nnd turning my horse I sat shivering. For
notwithstanding his confident words 1 saw
that he was handling his holster ; and I know
that ho was drawing a pistol ; and It was
well that the suspense was ahort. licforo I
had tlmo for many qualms , the horseman ,
a dark figure , lurched on us through the
gloom , pulled his horse on to Its haunches ,
nnd with raised hand cried to us to de
" And no nonsense ! " he added sharply.
"Or a brace of balls will BOOH "
Smith laughed. "Hox It about ! " ho cried.
"Halloo ! " the stranger answered , taking
n lower tone ; nnd he peered at us , bending
down over his horso's neck. "Who are you ,
In fly by night ? "
"A box-lt-about ! " my companion answered
with tartness. "That Is enough for you. So
good night. And I wish you bettor luck
next time. "
"Shi" Smith answered , cutting him short.

"I am going to my fntlior anil the less sniil
nbout It tliu better. "
"So ? " Well , plvo him my love , then.
"And hacking his horse the stranger bade
us good night , anil with a curBu on his bail

him go , and then wheeling wo took the road
Safoly. however , ns wo had etvcrgcd from
thla encounter , nnd far as It Mcnt toward
proving that \vu bore a talisman ngaltiHt the
ordinary purlin of truvolers , It wiia not of a
kind to reassure a law-abiding man. To be
hung as tlio accomplice of footpads and high ,
tohys was a scarcely hotter fate than to be
roblied and woundt'd by them ; and I was
heartily glad when wo found ournolvcs In the
outskirts of Itochcster , and mopping at a
house of call outsldo the Bleeping city , roused
a drowsy hostler , ami late as the hour wae ,
gained luitralico and a welcome.
I confess that , safe In these comfortable
quarters , on a sanded hearth before a re
kindled lire , with lights nnd food and ale
at my elbow , and a bed In prospect , I found
my apprehensions and 'misgivings less h.trd
to bear' than on the dark road above Tilbury
lints , I began to think less of the body
creaking In Its Irons on the gibbet rbove
Dariford , and nioro of the chance of
ultimate safety. And Smith , growing civil ,
If not genial , I went on to count thn hours
that must elapse licforo our miserable mis
sion accomplished , J fchould sen London
ngaln. After all , why should I not see
London again ? What was to prevent me ,
where lay the hindrance ? an three days , in
three days wo should bo back. So I told
myself ; and looking up ( illicitly mot Smith's
oyt'a brooding gloomily on me.
Such a night rldo as I have described
would have been Impossible , or at least
outrageously dangerous a year or two later ,
when a horde of disbanded soldiers , dis
missed from the colors by the peace of
Ityswlck , took to the roads for a subsistence ,
und for a period , until they perished
miserably , made even the purlieus of Ken-
At the lima of which I wrlto wo ran risk
enough , as has been demonstrated ; hut the
roa.tuns which Induced Smith to leave Lon
don at that hour and under cover o-f dark
ness may bo conceiveJl Apparently they
did not extend to the irst of. the journey ;
for , after lying late at Itochostcr , we nxle
on by Slttlngbourno to Fovorshaui , and I
thence , after a comfortable- dinner , turned I
south by Hadlesmere and so toward Ashfurd ,
where \vo arrived a few minutes after
f < Those who are acquainted -with the old I
1cm at the eutrtnco lnV > Ashford will remember -
* > member -that thai yard and stable * are aa
conspicuous for size and commoJIousncss as
the house , n black nnd white building , a
little withdrawn from thu street , Is strik
ingly marked by the lack of those ad
vantages. I believe that the huge concourse
thither of cattle drovers at the season nf ths
great fairs Is the cntlpo of this ; those per
sons lying close thomsclvcn , but needing
space for their beasts. And nt such times I
can Imagine that the roomy cncolntc , and
those long lines of buildings , may bo cheer
llut seen , as wo saw them when wo rode
In , by the last cold light of a dull evening ,
with nothing clear or plain save the roof
rldgc , and that black against a pale eky ,
they and the place looked Infinitely dismal.
Nor did any warmth of welcome , or cheer
ful greeting , such as even poor. Ions ntlord
to alt and sundry , amend the first Impres
sion of gloom and decay , which the bouse
and Its surroundings cpnveycd to the mind.
On the contrary , not a. soul was to bo seen ,
and wo had ridden half way across the
yard , and Smith had twice called "House !
house ! " before any one was aroused.
Then the upper half of a stable door
croaked open , and a man holding up a
great horn lanthorn peered out at us.
"Are you .all asleep ? " cried my compan
ion. And when the man made no answer
but still continued to look at us , "What Is
In the houseV , he added , angrily , "that you
stick out your death's head , to frighten com
pany ? Is It law or old Nantz ? Or French
goods ? Anyway , box It about and bo done
with it , and attend to us. "
"Ulglit , master , right , I am coming , " the
man answered , , suddenly rousing himself ;
and opening thOlower , | , half of the door , he
came heavily nutj "At your service , " he
said , "llut .wo have little company. "
"Tho times aro-bad ? "
"Ay , they looked a bit better , six months
"Hut nothing came of It ? "
"No , worse luck. "
"And all that Is called for now Is com
mon hollands , I suppose ? "
The follow grinned. "Right , " ho said.
"You have the hang of It , master. "
My companion slid to the ground , and
began to remove his pistols and saddlebag.
"Still you have some guests , I suppose ? "
"Aye , cine , " the man answered slowly ,
and , I thought , reluctantly.
"Is he , by any chance , a man of the
name of but never mind his name , " Smith
said. "Is he a surgeon. "
The hostler or host , for ho had- the air
of playing both parts , a big , clumsy fellow ,
with Immobile features and small eyes , looked
at us thoughtfully , and chewed a straw.
"Well , may be , " ho said at last. "I never
asked him. " And without more he took
Smith's horse by the rein nnd lurched
through the .door Into the stable ; the Irra-
thorn swinging In his hand as he did so ,
nnd faintly disclosing a long vista of empty
stalls and darkling roof. As H followed ,
leading In my sorry mare , a horse In a
distant stall whinnied loudly.
"That U his hack , I suppose ? " slid Smith ;
and coolly taking up the lanthorn , which the
other had that moment act down , ho moved
through the stable In the direction whence
the sound had come.
The man o the house uttered something
between an oath and a grunt ol surprise ,
and , letting fall the flap of the saddle , which
ho had Just raised that he might slacken
the girths , ho went after him. "Softly ,
master , " ho said , "every man to his "
Hut Smith was already standing with the
lanthorn held high , gazing at a handsomely
shaped chotnut horse that , pricking Its ears ,
turned a gentle eye on us and whinnied agnln.
"Uraph , not so bad , " my companion said.
"Ills horse , I suppose ? "
The man with the straw looked the animal
over reflectively. At length , with something
between a grunt and a sigh , "Ho came on
it. " he said.
"Ho won't go on it In a hurry. "
"Why not ? " said the man , more quickly
than he had yet spoken , and then looked
from the hor.'o to my companion with a
hint of hostility.
"Have you no eyes ? " Smith answered
roughly. "The off-foro has filled ; the horse
Is as lame as a mumper ! "
"Gammon ! " cried the other , evidently
stung. And then , "You know n deal about
horses In London ! And never saw one or a
blade of green grass , maybe , until you came
Kent way ! "
"As you please , " Smith said Indifferently.
"Hut my business 1 ? not with the horse , but
the master. So lake us In , my good friend ,
and give us supper , for I am famished. And
afterward , if you please , we will see him. "
"That Is as ho pleases , " the fellow
answered sulkily. IJut lift raised no second
cblectlon ; and when he had littered'down the
horses he led the way Into the house by a
back door and so along a passage and down
a step or two , which lands us In a room
with .a sanded floor , a fire and a show of
warmth and comfort , aa welcome as It w.is
unexpected. Hero ho left us to remove our
cloaks , and wo presently heard him giving
orders and bustling the kitchen.
The lloor of the room In which ho had left
us sunk a little below the level of the ro.id
outride , and the celling being low and the
window of greater width than height , and
thn mantel shelf having for ornament .1 row
of clean delft and noivtor , I thought that no
place had over looked more snug and cozy.
Hut whatever comfort I looked to derive from
surroundings , sp .much hotter than I had o\-
nectod. was dashed , by Smith's first wordi.
who , as soon as , WP were alone , rame eli-so
to mo , under the pretense of unclasping my
cloak , and In a low , guarded tone nnd with
a look of the grimmest , warned me to play
"Wo go upstairs nftor supper , nrd in flvo
minutes it wilj | ie done , " ho muttered. "On
through with it boldly , nnd In twenty-four
hours you may he back In London. llut
fall , or play me false , Mr. Price , and. by
heaven , I put a ball through your head fir.it
and my own afterward. Do you mark me ?
Do you mark me , man ? "
I whispered In abject nervousness seeing
that ho was Indeed In earnest that I would
do my host ; and ho handed mo a ring , which
was doubtless the same that the countess had
given to her woman. It hod a great dn cut
cameowlso on the stone , which I think was
an opul ; nnd It fitted my finger not 111. Hut
I had no more than time to glance nt It before -
fore the host nnd his wife , n pale , scared-
looking woman , came In with some bacon
and rggs and nle ; nml as ono or other of
them stayed with us while wo ate and
watched us closely , nothing was passed ,
Smith talking indifferently to them some
times about tlie fruit harvest , nnd sometimes
in cant phrases about the late plot , the ar
rest of Hunt at Dymchurch ( who had been
used to harbor people until they crossed ) ,
how often Gill's ship came ovc-r , Mr. lllrken-
head's many escapes , and the like. Probably
the man and the woman woio testing Smith ,
hut If BO ho satisfied them , for when wo
had finished our meal and ho asked openly If
> ? lr John would sro us they raised no objec
tion , but the man , taking a light ( rum the
woman's hand , led the way up u low-browed
staircase to a room over that In which we
had supped. Here ho knocked , and a volco
bidding us enter. Smith tfent In.and I after
him , my heart beating furiously.
The room , which resembled the ono beneath
It In being low lu thii colling , looked the
lower for the gaunt height of Its one occupant ,
who had risen and stood In the middle ( > t the
floor to receive us , Thin and spare ny na
ture , the meager and ratlier poor looking
dress which ho were added to the singularity
of his aspect , With a dry-annual complexion
and a three-days' old beard , ho had eyes

end , notxvlthtitandlug thn danger and uncer
tainty of his position , a fuglUvt * In this way-
sldo houso. with u thousand guineas on Ills
head , for I never doubted I was looking on
Sir John Fenwick , hli manner was at ono
moment arrogant and boas.fill and at an
other dreamy. Ho had Eonvjthlng of the air
nf a visionary , nor could uy one bo long
In his company without dlscimlng that here
was the very man fop our purpose , one to
whom all his gceua were swtns , and a clasp
of the baud. U it inarched with bis hope *
and wlshrn , of as much value ns a pledge
signed nnd scaled ,
All thin taken for granted , It Is to bo con
fessed that nt first sight of UK his face fell , ,
nnd his chagrin was unmistakable. "It Is
you. Smith , la It ? " ho said with n olgh. |
"Well , well , and I thought It was Ulrken- ;
hoad. llrown said It was not , but I thought
that It must be. It Is not every one knows
Hlrkenhead when ha sees him. '
"No , Sir John , that U true. "
"However , I shall see him In the morning.
I go on board at New Itomney at 4 , nnd
doubtless ho will bo with < 3I1I. When wo
come back "
"Ah , Sir John , limes will be changed
then ! " Smith said.
"They will , sir , with this Dutch crow nnd
their low beast of n mnnter swept Into the
Real And gentlemen In their homes again !
I have been amusing myself even now , " ho
continued , his eyes wandering to the table
on which lay a litter of papers , an Inkhorn
nnd two snuffy randies , "with' ' plans for anew
now wing at Kcnwlck hall , In the old style ,
I think , or possibly on the Unas of the ether
house nt Hexhnm. 1 am divided between the
two. The hall Is the moro commodious , the
old abbey has greater statollncss. However
I must put up my scripts now , for I inual
bo In the saddle In an hour. Have 'you
commands for the other side of the water ,
Mr. Smith ? If so , I am nt your service. "
Smith answered with a little hesitation ,
"Certainly , my business has to do with that ,
Sir John. " And he was proceeding to ex
plain , when the baronet , rubbing his hands
In glee , cut him short.
"Ha ! I thought so , " ho cried , beaming
with satisfaction. "Faith it Is so with every
ono. They nro nil of a tale. My service
nnd my respects and my duty all 'to ' go you
know whore , and It Is 'make It straight for

Sir John ? ' and 'answer for me ns for your
self , Sir John ! ' all day long _ whoa they can
come nt me. Why man , you know something ,
but you would bo surprised what messages
I am carrying over. And when people have
not spoken they have told mo ns much by a
look , nnd those the least likely ! Men who
It will declare for us whenever .ho . gets the
word. Hut you know It from him , 1 sup
pose ? "
"From Ijord Allcubury ? " I exclaimed , In
sheer surprise. "Hut ho Is a prisoner ! "
Sir John winked. "Prisoner nnd master ! "
ho muttered , nodding vigorously. "Hut
there , I must not keep you. Qood luck and
bon voyage. M lo due. "
Which was the last I saw of him for that
time. Nor did I ever see him again save
on one occasion. That ho was a violent
and fractious man , nnd n foe to the Protest
ant succession , I do not deny ; nor that some
passages In his life do him little credit , and
the most bruited the least. Hut , for all
this , and though I was then and ever a
stranger to him , I am fain to confess that ,
as I stumbled rtcnvn , the stairs and left the
poor , misguided gentleman nlone In uls
mean room lo pick up those plans for the
extension of the old house that would never
again own a Fcnw'lck for Its master and
so to set out on IvU dark Journey , I felt a:4 :
much pity for < him as loathing of the
trickster who employed me. And so far ns
this carried , and so , much Influence had It
with mo , that when wo reached the room
below , nnd , the * "landlord having left ua
to see to his horees.'Smlth , In his joy at our
success , clapped' 'ine on the shoulder , I
shrank from his Uacul as If It burned mo ;

And doubtless It Vas this outbreak , or
rather the suspicion of me which It sowed
In Smith's mind , that occasioned the sequel
nf our adventure , tor when ho had cursed
mo for a fool and had put on his cloak

ten years ago were as black oxcluslonists as
old Nell himself ! "
"I can bollevo It , Sir John " said Smith ,
with gravity ; whllo I who knew how the
late conspiracy had united the whole coun
try In King William's defense s.o that the
man who refused to sign the Commons' as
sociation to that en : ? went In peril of violence
lence listened with is much bewilderment
as I had felt three minutes before , on hear
ing how this same nuin , a fugitive and an
outlaw , bound beyond seas , had been employIng -
Ing his time !
However , he was as far from guessing
what was In my mind as he was from doubtIng -
Ing Smith's sincerity , and , encouraged by
the latter's assent , ho continued : "It Is
carious sh-anKo to me , Mr. Smith , how the
drunken Dutch boor stands a day ! Strange
and passing strange ! Hut It cannot last.
It will not last out the year. These execu
tions have opened men's eyes finely ? And
by Christmas we shall be back. "
"A merry Christmas It will be , " tald
Smith. "Heaven giant It. But you have not
asked. Sir John , who It Is I have with me. "
At that and at a sign ho made me , I let
fall the collar of the cloak 1 was wearing ,
which , in obedience to his directions I had
hitherto kept high about my chin. Sir John ,
his eyes drawn to me , as much by my action
as by Smith's words , stared at mo a moment
bel'oro his mouth opened wide In recognition
p.nd surprise. Then , "I am surely not mis
taken ! " ho cried , advancing a step , whllo
the color rcse In his sallow face. "It Is It
certainly Is "
"Sir John. " Smith cried In haste and he ,
too .advanced n ftep and raised a hand In
warning "this is Colonel Talbst ! Colonel
Talbot , mark you , sir ! I am sure you under
stand me , and the reasons which make It
Impossible for any but Colonel Talbot to visit
you hero. He has done me the honor to
accompany mo. But perhaps , " he continued ,
checking himself with an air of deference ,
"It were more fitting I left you now. "
"No , " I said hurriedly , repeating the lesson
I had learned by note , and In which Smith
had not failed to practice me a dozen times
that day. "I am hero to one end only to
ask Sir John Fenwick to do Colonel Talbot a
kindness- take this ring and convoy It
wltli my service and duty whither ho Is
"O , but this is extraordinary ! " Sir John
cried , lifting his hands and oyoi In a kind of
ecstacy , "This la a dispensation ! A provi
dence ! Hut , ray lord , " he continued with
rapture , "there Is ono more step you may
take , one moro effort you may make. Bo
the restorer , 'ho monk of the generation !
So rlpo Is the pear that .were you to rldo
through the city tomorrow nnd proclaim our
rightful sovereign , not a citizen but would
bless you , not a soldier but would throw
down his iilke ! The blues are with us to a
man. and enraged besides at Keycj' e.xecu-
I I Hon. And the rest of the army do you
dream that they seu Dutch colonels promoted
meted and Dutch soldiers overpaid and do
not resent U ? I toll you , my lord your
grace , I should say , for doubtless the king
will confirm It. " "
"Sir John , " 1 said hastily , assuming an
anger I did not feel , "you mistake me. I
am Colonel Talbot and no other. And I am
here'not to listen to plans or make sugges
tions , but to request a favor at your hands.
Ho good enough to convoy that ring with my
service whither you are going. "
"And that Is all ? " hocried reproach
fully. "You will say no more ? "
I "That Is all , sir , " I answered , and then ,
! oatchlng Smith's eye , I added , "save this.
' You may add that , when the tlmo comes , 1
1 shall know what to do , and J shall do It. "
This time , sobered by my words and
manner , ho took In silence the ring I
proffered ; but , having glanced at It , gave
way to u second burst of rapture and
Jubilation , moro selfish nnd personal thin
the first , but not less hearty. "This will bo
the best news Lord Mlddlcton has had rbr a
twelvemonth , " ho cried gleefully , "And
that 1 should nucceod where I am told that
! ho failed , ( lad ! I am the proudest man In
England , your grace Colonel Talbot , I
' mean. Wo will pound Mclfort and that fac
tion with this. Wowill pound them to
powder. Ho has wasted half a million and not
got such an adherent. Good lord , I shall
, not rest now until I am across with the
! "Nor I , until Colonel Talbot Is on the road
; again , " said Smith , Intervening deftly. ' "At
r the liest this Is no very safe place for him. "
I "That Is true , " said Sir John'wlth ready
1 consideration. "And I should bo riding
within the half hour. llut to Hoaincy. You ,
I suppose , return to London ? " ,
"To London , " I said , mechanically.
"Direct ? " said 'he ' , with deference ,
"As directly ns wo dare , " Smith answered ,
and with thu word moved to the door and
: opened It. On which I bowed , and was for
, going out , Tierhaps with a little awkward
ness. Hut Sir John , too deeply Impressed
! by the honor I < bad done him to let me
; retire so lamely , started forward , and ,
i snatching up n candle , would hold the door
I and light 'me , bending his long back and
| calling to Hrown to look to us to look to
us ! Nor was this all , for when , I 'halted half
way down the stairs , and turned , feeling
that such courtesy demanded some acknowl
edgment , or at least a " word or thanks , he
took the word nut of"my mouth.
"Hist ! Colonel Talbot ! " he cried , In a loud
whisper , and , leaning far over the stairs , ho
held the light ivlth one hand and shaded his
eyes with the other. "You know that we
have the tower ? "
" " ' muttered not understanding
"The tower ? 'I ,
"To be sue. Ailesbury lias-It In hit band.
municato with Sir John , nor take me with
him on his Immediate errand. More than
once ho went to the door , and eyeing me
Mkacce end sourly , came back , but in the
end , and after standing a while Irresolute ,
biting his nails , he made up his mind , and
curtly bade mo follow'him. '
"Do you think that I am to saddle for
you , you whelp ? " ho cried. "He stirring !
And luivo a csre , or I shall bore that hole
In you yet. Take that lag and go before
me. Uy G , I wish you were at the bottom
tom of the nearest horse pond ! "
His words had the effect he Intended. oE
bringing me to my souses ; but they went
farther. For In proportion as they cooled
my temper they awakened my fears , nnd
though I obeyed him aliJFCtly , took up my
bag and followed him , it was with a sudden
and hTrlblp distrust o ! his purpose. I saw
that I had not only ceased lo be of like to
him , but wns now in his way , and might be
a danger to him , and the night which en
veloped us the ; inoneni | wo crossed jtha
threshold ! > nd ssemed the more dreary and
forbidding for the rnday light and comfou
wo had left behind ij | > reminding me of the
long , dark miles I must ride by his side.
Oiioh mile a terror to one 3nd an opportunity
to the other , I hqd much ado not to give way
to Instant panlc thcra anl : then. However ,
for the time I contr lied ni > self , and stum
bling across the , gloomy yard to the spot
wliL-i-o a ( aint gUaiu ol llsht Indicated tiie
doo. ' of the stables , J went In.
The landlord w'ns saddling our horses ; and
a little cheered .by JJ the warmth rf his
lanthDrn , I went to liplp him. Smith turned
aside ; as I thought into the next stall. But
Brown wao slmrppr cr more suspicious , and
In a twinkling cajied to him lustily , to know
what ho was doing. Getting no answer ,
"Dlvil take hlm | " th'o landlord cried. "Ho
cnnr.-t keep from that horse ! Here , you !
What are you doing lhero ? "
"Coming ! " Smfth a'fawcred ; but even as he
spoke I ciught tHe shiart click of iron fall
ing on iron , and the horse in the distant
stall moved sharply with a hurried clatter of
ho fa on the st.nca. "Coming ! " Smith re
peated. "What Is the matter with you ,
man ? "
"You had bot'.er como , " the landlord an
swered savagely. 'Or I shall fetch you.
Hero , you ! " this to me , 'lead yours out , will
you. I want to see your backs , and ( be quit
of you ! "
I took my horse by the bridle , and led It
out of the stable , while llrown went to bit
the other. And so , being alone outside , and
the moon rising nt the moment over the roof
of the house and showing me the open gates
nt tha end of the yard , the Impulse to cs-
capo from Smith while I had the opportunity
came on mo with overpowering fcrce. Hot
ter acquainted than the landlord with the
villain's plans I lind net a doubt that nt
that very moment ho was laming Sir John's
hoiso for the purpose of detaining him ; and
the cold-blooded treachery of tills act , fill
ing me with as much terror on my own no-
count who might bo the next victim aa
hatred of the perpetrator , I climbed softly
to my saddle , and bogarj to wall : my horse
toward the gates. Doubtless Smith wns too
busy cloaking his own movements to bo ob
servant of mine. I reached the gates un
noticed , and turning Instinctively from Lon
don | n which direction I fancied that ho
would bo sure to pursue mo I kicked my
mare fiist Into a quick walk , then. Into a
cautious trot , finally Into a canter. The
beast , though far from speedy , was fresli
from Its corn ; It took hold of the bit , shied I
at a chance light In a rotter's window , and
wont faster and faster , Its cars pricked for
ward , In a minute wo hn-1 left Anhford be
hind us , and were clattering through the
moonlight. With ono hand on the pommel
and the ether holding the shortened reins
I urged the mare on with all the pressuro-of
my legs ; and albeit I trembled , now at some
late-spen obstacle , which proved to bo only
the shadow of a tree , thrown across the
road , and now at the steepness of a descent
that appeared suddenly before me , 1 never
faltered , hut uphill and downhill drove In my
licols and , with fear behind me , rode In the
night ns I hnd never before dared to ride In ,
I had known nothing like It since the
summer day twelve years before , when I had
lied across the HtTtfoMlshlro meadows on my
feet. The ewcat ran down mo , I stooped In
the saddle out of pure weakness. If the
horse pricked Its ears forward I spread mine
backward , listening for sounds of pursuit.
Hut such a speed could not be long main
tained , and when we liad gone , as I Judged ,
two mllefc , the mare began to flag , and the
canter became a trot. Still for another mile
I urged her on , until , feeling her labor
under mo and foreseeing that 1 must ride
far. I had the thought to turn Into the firii
lane to which I came and there wait In the
shadow of a tree until Smith , If he followed ,
should pass ,
I did this , sprang down , and , standing by
my panting horse , ln a marshy hollow some
200 paces from tho. road , listened Intently.
For twenty mlnutqs , .Jt may be , for they
seemed to be hours to mo. After the life
I had been loading ln < London this loneliness
In the night In a stran.Ro and wild place , and
with a relentless enemy on my track , ap
palled my very soii | . I was hot , and yet I
shivered and started at the least sound. The
scream of a curlew4aunted * me , the rustling
of the rushes and seflge shook me ; when a
sad wall , as of a. uyjltitude of lost souls
passed overhead , I cowed almost to my knees.
Yet , Inasmuch as tiese sounds , doleful and
dreary as they were , were all I heard , and
the night air broughi , uo trampling of distant
hoofs to my cars , I had rcaeou to be thank
ful , and more than thankful ; and my mare ,
having by this tlmo cot her wind again , 1
led her hiek to the road , climbed Into the
pndillo and tdoddr-d on stc-Adlly , deriving n
wonderful icllcf nnd confidence from the
thought that Smith hid followed me London-
Moreover , I had conceived a sort of horror
of the loncl'ctcss ' of the waste country side ,
and to keep the highway was willing to
run some risk. I took It that the road 1
was traveling must bring mo to Ilomney ,
and for a good hour and a half I Jogged
with n loose rein through the gloom , the
way becoming even flatter and wetter , the
w.nd more chill nnd salt , end the night
darker , the moon betag constantly overcast
by clouds. In that marshy district are few
hamlets or farms , and those of the smallest
nml very sparsely scattered. Once or twice
T heard the bark of n distant sheep dog ,
Jind once far to the loft 1 saw a tiny light. ,
and had thu Idea of makln , for It , Hut Uin
Tcfioctlonnthat n dozen great ditches , each
wide unough and deep enough to smother
my horsd ) might lie between me nnd the
'house ' , availed to keep mo liii the ro.id ; the
more as 1 now felt sure from the saUkicss
of the night air that Homney and the sea
were at no great distance In front of me.
Presently , Indeed , t made out In front of
mo two moving lights , which I took to bo
those of ships riding nt cmchor , and my
weary mare quickered her pace as If she
smclled the stable and the hayrack.
For five minutes after that I plodded on
In the happy belief that my journey was as
good as over and I was saved , and I let my
mind dwell on shelter nnd safety , nnd a
bed and food and the like , all awaiting me ,
as I faucicd , In the patch of low gloom
before me , where my fancied pictured the
Bleeping town. Then , on a sudden , my ear
caught the dull beat of a horse's hoofs on
the road behind me , nnd my heart standing
Btltl with terror , I plucked at my reins and
stood to listen. Aye , and It was no fancy )
a moment satisfied me of that. Thud , thud ,
thud-thud , and then squash , squash , squish-
squish ! A horse was coming up behind me ,
and not only behind mo , but hard upon me
within less than 100 paces of me. The
soft wet road had smothered the sound up
to the last moment.
The rldor was so close to mo Indeed nnd
I was so much taken by surprise that the
moon , sailing at that Instant .Into a clear
sky , showed mo to him before I could set
jny hoi BO going ; and as 1 started , whipping
nnd spurrlcg desperately , I heard the man
r.hout That was enough for mo ; plunging
recklessly forward along the wet , boggy
road , I Hogged my horse into a Jaded canter ,
and leaning low in the saddle In mortal
fear of a bullet , closed my eyes to the dan
ger that- lay ahead , and thought only of
c-jcane from that which followed on my
Suddenly , nnd whllo I was still kicking
and urging on my horse , before the first
Hush of fear hnd left me , I heard a crash
end n cry behind me ; but I did not dare
at that moment to look back. I only leaned
the lower , and clung the moro tightly to
my horse's mane , und still pressed on. By
nnd by , .however , hearing nothing , it flashed
on mo that .1 wns riding alone , that I was
no longer pursued ; and a llttlo later , taking
courage to draw' roln and look back warily ,
I found that I could see nothing , nor hear
any sound saVe the heavy panting of my
own ! i irse.
1 had escaped. I had escaped nnd w.-s
alone on the marsh. Hut as I soon satisfied
myself , Ivas no longer on the causeway
along which 1 had been traveling when the
man surprised mo. The wind which had
then met me 'was ' not on my right cheen ;
the lights for which I had been heading
were no longer visible. The track , too ,
when I moved cautiously forward seemed
mora wet and vough ; after that It needed
little to con\lnco mo that .1 had strayed
from the highway , probably at the point
where my pursutr hnd fallen.
This , since I dared not return by tbe
way I had come , terribly perplexed me. I
dismounted , " and wet with shivering stood
by my horse , which hung Its head , and
restlessly lifted Its feet by turns as if It
already felt the engulfing power of the
mess. Peering out every way I saw noth
ing but gloom and mist , the dark waste and
unknown depths of the marsh. It was a
situation to try the stoutest , nor did It need
the mournful sough of the wind as It swept
the flats or I he strange gurgling noises that
from tlmo lo tlmo rose from the sloughs
e'out mo to add the last touch of fear and
lil'elanchofy"tb the scene.
Though , for my own part , I sank in no
farther than my ankles , the horse by Its
restlessness evinced a strong sense of
danger and I dared not stand still. But ns
clouds had again obscured the moan and the
darkness was absolute , to advance seemed
3 dangerous ES to remain. However , In
fear that the horse , If I stood where I was ,
would break loose from me , I led It forward
cautiously , and then the track growing no
worse but rather better , and the boast seem
ing to gain confidence as It proceeded , I
presently took courage to remount ngaln ,
nnd , dropping the reins , allowed It to carry
me whither It would. This It did slowly and
wi'h ' Infinite caution , smelling rather than
feeling the way , and often stopping to try
a doubtful spot. Observing how wonderfully
the Instinct C'f ' the boast aided It , and re
membering that .1 hod once been told that
horses foarcd nothing so much ns to bo
smoored ( as the fcnmon call It ) and would
not willingly run th't risk , I gained con
fidence myself ; which the event Justified ,
for by and by I caught the dull sound of sea
waves fooomlng on a beach , nnd a few
minutes afterwards discerned In the sky
before mo the first faint streaks of dawn ,
Heaven knows how welcome It was to me.
I was wet , weary and shivering with cold ,
and with the aguish air of that drcnry place ,
which Is so unwholesome thnt I am lo'd
the natives take drugs to stave off the fever ,
ra others do nlo and wine. Hut at the eight
I pricked up , and the horse , too ; and we
moved on briskly , und presently by the help
of the growing light , and through a gray
mist which trebled ths size of all objects , I
snv a huge wall or bank loom across my
path. I was close to It when I discerned
it , and I had no moro than tlmo to despair
of surmounting It before the horse was al
ready clambering up it. Scrambling nnd
slipping aninng the stones In a minute or BO ,
and with a great clatter , wo gained the sum
mit , nnd saw holow and before us the smooth
milky surface of the sea , lifting lazily under
So neon It hnd a strangely weird nnd
pallid aspect , as of a dead sea , viewed In
dreams ; and I stood a moment to breathe
my Inrso and admire the xpectncle ; nor did
I fail to thank God that I was out of thai
dreary rind treacherous place. Then , consid
ering my future movements and not kii"W-
Ipg which way I ought to take to right or
left along the beach to gain the moro
quickly help ami shelter , I was reining my
mare clown the seaside of thu bank when a
welcome sound caught my cnr. It wns n
man's volco giving an order. I halted nnd
peered through the sea haze , nnd by nnd by
I made out n boat lying beached nt the edge
of the tide , some 160 yards to my left. There
were men standing In It I could not see
how many ; and more were In the act of
pushing It oft the strntid. Their voices enmo
to mo with singular clearness , but the words
The sight made mo psuso. and for a moment
I stood reconnolterlni ; the men. To advance
or not wai the question , nnd I was still do
nating It , and striving to deduce something
from the men's appearance , when something ,
1 never knew what perhaps some noise , Ill-
apprehended led mo to turn nsldo my head.
Whatever the cause of the movement , U
apprised mo of something llttlo suspected. ,
Not fifty paces behind me 1 saw the figure
of a giant horseman looming out of the
mist. He was advancing along the summit i ,
of the sea wall below which 1 stood ; hcneo |
I saw him before he made mo out , and this i i
gave mo the sMrt and the advantage. I
had tlmo to take In thn thing and sclzo my
horse by the head and move eight or tea
paces toward the bout before ho took the
cue. Then on neither side was there any
concealment. With n cry , a yell rather , the
moro sound of which flung me Into n panic ,
the man urged his horse down the Kink ,
shouting fiercely to mo to stand ; I , In utter
terror , spurred mine across the beach toward
the men 1 had seen.
1 have said that I had some sixty yards of
start , and " 00 or so to cross to reach the
boat , but the horses were scarcely able to
trot ; a yard was a furlong ; and , the sand
swallowing up the sound of hoofs. It was a
veritable race of ghosts , of phantoms , laborIng -
Ing through the mist across the flat , with
thu oily Stygian sea lapping the shore beside
us. He cried out In the meet violent fashion ,
now bidding mo stay and now bidding the
men stop me. And for all I knew they
might bo In his pay. or at best bo some of
the reckless desperadoes who on thnt coast
live by owllng and worse practices. Hut
they were my only hope , nnd I , too , cried
to them , and with Joy I saw them put In
again they had before set afloat. Believing
Smith to ho gaining , I cried pitifully to them
to save mo , and then , my horse stumbling , I
flung myself from the -saddle and plunged
through the sand toward-thorn. At that two
sprang out to meet mo nlid caught mo under
my arms , and In a moment , amid a jargon
of cries In n foreign tongue , whipped mo over
the shin Into the boat. Then they pushed It
off nnd leaped In themselves , wet to the
thighs ; and as my pursuer came lurching
down the beach , a pistol drawn in his hand ,
a counlo of powerful ! strokes drove the boat
through the light surf , Waving frantically ,
ho yelled to the mento wait and rode lo his
boot soles Into the water , but with a Jeering
laugh and a volley of foreign words the
sailor * pulled the faster and the faster , and
the mist lying thick on the water , and the
brat sitting low , In half a minute wo lost
the last glimpse of him and his passion , and
rode outward on a giay , boundless sea.
