dress caught in the bushes that droop Into
the water. Her hat was gone, and her hair
unbound floated out, waving with the cur

out, but she was quite dead. Four men
from the village carried her up here, and
they've placed her In her own room."

remarked, recollecting that when she had

Yemarked. Then I asked, "Has she ever
been known to meet anyone on the river
bank at night?"
Old Parkinson was usually an lmpene-,
treble person. He fidgeted, and I saw that
my question was an awkward one tor him
to answer without telling a He.
The truth will have to be discovered
about this, you know," I went on. "There
fore, If you have any knowledge likely to
assist us at the inquest it la your duty to
Well, sir," he answered, after a short
pause, "to tell the truth, In this last week
or so there have been some funny rumors
In the village."
"People say that she was watched by
Drake, Lord Massington's gamekeeper, who
saw ber at 2 o'clock In the morning walk
ing arm in arm with an old gentleman. I
beard the rumor down at the Golden Ball,
but I wouldn't believe It. Why, Mr. Cour-
tenay's only been dead a month or two. The
man Drake Is a bragging fellow, and I think
most people discredited his statement."
Well." I said, "it might possibly have
beeu true. It seems hardly conceivable that
shs should go wandering alone by the river
at night. She surely had some motive In
going here. Was Bhe only seen by the game
keeper on one occasion?
"Only once. But, of course, he soon spread
It about the village and It formed for a week
a nice titbit of gossip. As soon as I heard
It I took steps to deny it."
"It never reached the young lady's ears?"
"Oh, no," the old servant snswered. "We
wen careful to keep the scandal to our
selves, knowing how it would pain her.
She's had sufficient trouble In her life, poor
thing.". And with tears in bis gray old
eyes, be added: "I have known her ever
since she wss a child In her cradle. It's
awful that her end should come like this."
He was a most trustworthy and devoted
servant, having spent nearly forty years of
his life in the service of the family, until
he bad become almost part of It. Ills voice
quivered with emotion when he spoke of
the dead daughter of the bouse, but he
knew that toward me It was not a servant's
privilege to entirely express the grief he
I put other questions regarding the dead
woman's recent actions and he wss com
pelled to admit that they bad of late been
quite unaccountable. Her absences were
frequent and she appeared to sometimes
make long and mysterious Journeys In va
rious directions, while her days at homo
were usually spent in the solitude of ber
own room, goine friends of the family, he
said, attributed It to grief at the great
blow she had sustained, while others sus
pected that her mind bad become slightly
unhinged. I recollected, myself, bow
strange bad been ber manner when sbe hJ
visited me, and Inwardly ceufeosed to being
Dr. Govltt I found to be a stout middle
(ed man, cl the usual type of old-fash
loned practitioner of a cathedral town.
whose methods and'idras were equally old-
fashioned. Before I entered the room where
the unfortunate young woman wss lying
be explained to me that life had evidently
been extinct about seven hours prior to the
discovery of the body.
"There are no marks of foul play?' I
None, as far as I've been able to nnd
only a scratch on the left cheek, evidently
Inflicted after death."
"What's your opinion?"
"Suicide. Without a doubt. The hour at
which she fell Into tho water Is shown by
her watch. It stopped at 2:28."
"You have no suspicion of foul play?' .
I did not reply, but by the compression
of my lips I presume he saw that I was
"Ah! I see you sre suspicious," he said.
Of course, In tragic circumstances like
these the natural conclusion is to doubt.
The poor young lady's husband was mys
teriously done to death, and I honestly
believe that her mind gave way beneath
the strain of grief. I've attended her pro
fessionally two or three times of late and
noted certain abnormal features In her case
that arouse my suspicion that her brain
had become unbalanced. I never, however,
suspected her of suicidal tendency."
Her mother, Mrs. Mlvart, did," I re
sponded. "She told me so only a few days
'I know, I know," he answered. "Of
course, her mother had moro frequent and
Intimate opportunities for watching ber
than I had. In any case, it Is a very dread
ful thing for the family."
"Very!'1 I said.
"And the. mystery surrounding the death
of Mr. Courtenay was It never cleared up?
Did the police never discover any clue to
No. Not a single fact regarding U be
yond those related at the Inquest has ever
been brought to light."
"Extraordinary very extraordinary!"
I wenfwlth him into the darkened bed
room wherein lay the body, white and com
posed, her fair hair disheveled about her
shoulders and her thin white hands crossed
upon her breast. -The expression upon her
countenance that face that looked so
charming beneath its veil of widowhood
as she bad sat In my room at Harlcy Place
was . calm and restful, for Indeed in the
graceful curl of the Hps there was a kind
of half-smile, as though, poor thing, she
bad at last found perfect peace.
' -Covin drew up the blind, allowing the
golden sunset to stream into the room
thereby giving me sufficient light to make
my examination. The latter occupied some
little time, my object being to discover any
marks of violence. In persons drowned by
force, and especially in women, the doctor
expects to find red or livid marks upon tbe
wrists, arms or nefk, where the assailant
had seized the vlcim. Of course, these are
not always discernible, for it is easier to
entice the Unfortunate one to the water's
edge and give a gentle push than grapple
in violence and hurl a person into the
stream by main force. The push leaves no
trace; therefore, the verdict In hundreds ot
cases ot willful murder has been V'suiclde,
or an open one, because the necessary evl
dence of foul play has been wanting.
Here was another case in point. Tbe
scratch on the face that Govltt had de
scribed was undoubtedly a post-mortem in
Jury, and with the exception of anoher
slight scratch op the ball of tbe left thumb
I could find no trace whatever of violence
And yet, to me, the most likely theory was
that she had again met her husband In se
cret. and bad lost ber life at his hands. To
attribute a motive was utterly impossible.
I merely argued logically within myself that
It could not possibly be a case of suicide,
for without a doubt she had met clandes
tinely the eccentrlo old man whom the
world believed to be dead. '
The facts within Tny knowledge were im
portant and startling, yet) If I related them
to any second person I felt that my words
would be scouted as Improbable, and my
allegations would certainly not be accepted.
Therefore I still kept my own counsel, long
ing to meet Jevons and hear the result of
his further Inquiries.
Mrl. Mivart I found seated In her own
room, tearful and utterly crushed. Poor
Mary's tragic end bad come upon her aa an
overwhelming burden of grler, and I stood
beside her full of heartfelt sympathy. A
strong bond of affection bad always existed
between us, but as I took her Inert hand
and uttered words of comfort she only shook
her head sorrowfully and burst Into a tor
rent of tears. Truly the Manor was a dis
mal house of mourning.
To Ethelwynn I sent a telegram ad
dressed to the Hennikers, In order that
she should receive it the Instant she ar
rived In town. Briefly I explained the
tragedy and asked her to come down to the
Manor at once, feeling assured tnat Mrs.
Mlvart in the hour of her distress desired
her daughter at her side.' Then I accom
panied the local constable and the three po
lice officers who had come over from
Oundle. down to the riverside.
The brilliant afterglow tinged the
broad brimming river with a crimson ltght.
and the trees beside the water already
threw, heavy shadows, for the day was
dying and the glamor of the fading sunset
and the dead stillness of departing day
had fallen upon everything. Followed by
a small crowd of curious villagers we
walked along the footpath over the fa
miliar ground that I had traversed when
following the strango pair. Eagsrly wo
searched everywhere for traces of a strug
gle, but the only spot where the long
grass was trodden down was at a point
a little beyond the ferry. But as far as I
could see there was no actual sign of any
struggle. It was merely as tnougn tn
grass bad been flattened by the trailing
of a woman's skirt across It. Examina
tion showed, too, Imprints of Louis av
heels in the soft clay bank. One print was
perfect, but the other, close to the edge,
gave evidence that the foot had slipped.
thus establishing the spot as mat wner-
the unfortunate young laty had fallen Into
the water. When examining the boay i
had noticed that she was wearing Louis
XV shoes, sndalso that there wss still nun
upon the heels. She had always been rather
Droud of her feet, and surely mere is Hom
ing which sets off the shape ot a woman s
foot better than the neat little shoes with
ita hiah Insten and heel.
We searched on uutll twilight darkened
into night, oaverslng that path every ae
tail -of which had impressed Itself so In
delibly upon mytiraln. We p-naed the stile
near which . I hsd stood hidden In the
bushes and had overheard that remarkable
conversation between the "dead" man and
his wife. All the memories of that never
i..h.inrntin niaht returned to me. Alas
that f had not nuestloned Mary when shs
had called unon me on the previous dsy!
8he bad died with ber secret hidden
within her heart.
Ktlielniss Is Silent.
At nildnlht I was seated la the drawing
, , i
room of tne manor, uetore me, aressea in
plain black which made her beautiful face
look even paler than It was. sat my love
bowed, despondent, silent. Tbe household,
although still astir, was bushed by the
presence of the desd, the long, old room
Itself, usually so bright and plessant,
seemed full of dsrk shadows, for the lamp,
beneath its yellow shade, burned but
dimly, and everywhere there reigned an air
Half demented by grief, my love had
arrived In hot haste about 9 o'clock, and,
rushing to poor Mary's room, bad thrown
herself upon her knees beside tbe poor
Inanimate clay, for even though of late
differences might have existed between
them, the sisters were certainly devoted to
each other. The scene In that room was
an unhappy one, for, although Ethelwynn
betrayed nothing by her Hps, I saw by her
manner that she was full ot remorse, over
the might-have-beens and that she was
bitterly reproaching herself for some fact
of which I had no knowledge. -
We had not spoken ot the past. She had
been too full of grief, too utterly overcome
by tbe tragedy of the situation. Her mourn
ful figure struck the sympathetic chord in
my heart. Perhaps I had misjudged her
perhaps I had attributed to her sinister
motives that were nonexistent. Alas!
wherever mystery exists, little charity en
ters man's heart. Jealousy dries up the
milk ot human kindness.
Dearest," I said, rising and taking her
slim white hand that lay In her lap, "in
this hour of your distress you hsve at least
one person who would console and comfort
you one man who loves you."
She raised her eyes to mine quickly, with
a ntrsnge, eager look. Her glance was as
though she did not fully realize the purport
of my words. I knew myself to bo a sad
blunderer In the art of love, and wondered
if my words were too blunt and abrupt.
Ah!" she sighed. "If only I believed
that those words came direct from your
"They do," I assured her. "You received
my letter at Hereford you read what I
wrote to you?"
"Yes," she answered. "I read it. But
how can I believe in you further, aftej your
unaccountable treatment? You forsook me
without giving any reason. You can't deny
"I don't seek to deny it," I said. "On
the contrary, I accept all the blame that
may attach to me. I only ask your for
giveness," and bending to her In deep
earnestness, I pressed the small band that
was within my grasp.
"But If you loved me, as you declare
you have always done, why did you desert
me In that manner?" she Inquired, her
largo dark eyes turned seriously to mine.
I hesitated. Should I tell her the truth
openly and honestly?
"Because of a fact which came to my
knowledge," I answered, after a long pause.
"What fact?" she asked with some anx
iety. "I made a discovery," I said ambigu
ously. "Regarding me?" ,
"Yes," regarding yourself," I replied with
my eyes fixed full upon hers. I saw that
she started at my words, her" countenance
fell, and she caught her breath quickly.
"Well, tell me what It is." she asked
In 'a hard tone, a tone which showed me
that she bad t.eeled herself for tbe worst.
"Forgive me If I speak the truth," I
exclaimed. "You have asked me, and 1
will be perfectly frank with you. Well, I
discovered among old Mr. Courtenay's
papers a letter written by you several
years ago which revealed the truth."
"The truth!" she gasped, her face
blanched in an instant. "The truth of
"That you were once engaged to be.
came his wife."
Her breast heaved quickly, and I saw
that my words had relieved her of some
grave apprehension. When I declared that
I knew "the truth" she believed thst 1
spok. of the secret of Courtenay's mas
queradlng. The fact of her previous en
gagement was, to her, of only secondary
Importance, for she replied;
wen, ana is that tbe sole cause of
I felt assured from the feigned flippancy
of her word that she held knowledge of the
"It was the main cause," I said. "You
concealed the truth from me, and lived In
tnat man's bouse after he had married
I had a reason for doing so," she ex
claimed in a quiet voice. "I did not live
there by preference."
You were surely noC forced to do so?
To. I was not forced. It was a duty."
Then, after a pause, she covered her face
with her hands and suddenly burst into
tears, crying, "Ah, Ralph! If you could
know all all that I have suffered, you
would not think ill of me! Appearances
have been against me, that I know quite
well. The discovery of that letter must
have convinced you that I was a schemer
snd unworthy, and the fact that I lived
beneath the roof ot the man who had cast
me off added color to the theory that I bad
conceived some deep plot. Probably," she
went on, spesking between her sobs, "prob
ably you even suspected me of having
had a hand in the terrible crime. Tell me
frankly," she asked gripping my arm, and
looking Into my face. "Did you ever sus
pect me of being the assassin?"
I paused. What could I reply? Surely
It was the best to be open and straight
forward. So I told her that I bad not been
alone In tbe suspicion, and tbat Ambler
Jevons bad shared it with me.
"Ah! that accounts for his marvelous
Ingenuity In watching me. For weeks past
he has seemed to be constantly near me
making inquiries regarding my movements
wherever I went. You both suspected me,
But Is it necessary that I should assert
.my Innocence of such a deed?" she asked
"Are you not now convinced that It wa
not my hand tbat struck down old Mr
"Forgive me," I urged. "The suspicion
was based upon ill-formed conclusions and
was heightened by your own peculiar vcon
duct after the tragedy."
That my conduct was strsnge was surely
natural. The discovery was quite as sp
palling to me as to you. And, knowing that
somewhere among the dead man's papers
mf letters were preserved, I dreaded lest
tbey should fall into the bands of the
police and thereby connect me with the
clime. It wss fear that my final letter
should be discovered that gave my actions
the appearance of guilt."
I took both ber hands In mine, and, Ax
ing my gaze straight Into those dear eyes
wherein the love-look shone tbat .look by
which a man is able to read a woman's
heart I asked her a question.
"Ethelwynn," I said,' calmly and seriously,
"we love each other. I know I've been
suspicious without cause and cruel in my
neglect; nevertheless the separation has
quickened my affection and has shown tbat
to me life without you Is Impossible. You,
darling, are the only woman who bas en
tered my life. I bsva championed no woman
ssve yourself; by no ties hsve I, been bound
to sny woman In this world. Thla I would
have you believe, for It Is the truth God
Is my witness."
She made "me no answer. Her tiny bands
trembled In my grasg and she bowed her
head so that I could not see her face.
"Will you not forgive, dearest?" I urged.
Tha srest longing to speak out my mind
bad overcome me. and. having eased myself
of mv burden. I atood awaiting er re
spocse. "Will you not be mine sgaln. ss
In the old days before this chain of tragedy
fall unon your bouse .
Again the battated for several minutes.
Then, of a sudden, she lifted ber tear-
stained face toward mr, all rosy with
blushes snd wearing that sweet look which
I had known so well In tbe happy days
"If you wish It, Ralph," she fsltered, "we
will forget that any breach between us bas
ever existed. I desire nothing else, for
as you well know, I love no one else but
yourself. I have been foolish, I know. I
ought to have explained the girlish ro
mantic affection I once entertained for
that man who afterward married Mary. In
those days he was my ideal. Why, I can
not tell. Girls In their teens have strango
caprices, and that was mine. Just as
schoolboys fall violently In love with mar
ried women, so are schoolgirls sometimes
attracted toward aged meu. People won
der when they hear of May and December
marriages, but they are not always from
mercenary motives, as Is popularly sup
posed. Nevertheless I acted wrongly In
not telling you the truth from the first.
It Is myself who Is to blamo."
So much she sajd, though with many a
pause and with so keen a sclt-reprosch in
her tone that I could hardly bear to hear
her, when I interrupted:
"There Is blame on both sides. Let us
forget about It all." and I bent until my
lips met hers and we scaled our compact
with a long, dinging caress. .
"Yes. dear heart. Let us forget It," she
whlfpered. "We have both suffered both
of us." and I felt her arms tighten about
my nock. "Oh, how you must have bated
"No," I declared. "I never hated you.
I was mystified and suspicious, because I
felt assured that you knew the truth re
garding the tragedy at Kew and remained
She looked Into my eyes as though she
ould read my soul.
"Unfortunately,", she answered, I am
not aware of tho truth.
"But you are in possession ot certain
strange facts eh?"
"That I am In possession of facts that
lead me to certain conclusions is the truth
But the cluo is wanting. I have been seek
ing for it through all these months, but
"Cannot we art in acord In this matU-r,
dearest? May I not be acquainted with
the facts which, with your Intimate knowl
edge of the Courtpnay household, you were
fully acquainted with at the time of tbe
tragedy?" I urged.
"No, Ralph, 'Vsbe replied, shaking her
bead, and at the same time pressing my
hand. "I cannot yet tell you anything,
"Then you have no confidence In me?" I
"It Is not a question of confidence, but
one of honor," she replied.
"But you will at least satisfy my curi
osity upon one point," I exclaimed. "You
will tell me tbe reason you lived beneath
'You know the reason well. He was an
Invalid and I went there to keep Mary
I smiled at tbe lameness of ber explana
tlon. It was, however, an Ingenious
evasion of the truth, for, after all, I could
not deny that I had known this through
several years. Old Courtpnay, being prac
tically confined to bis room, bad himself
suggester Ethelwynn bearing his young wife
"Answer me truthfully, dearest. Was
there no further reason?"
She paused, and In ber hesitation I de
tected a desire to deceive, even though I
loved her bo fondly.
"Yes .there was," she admitted at last,
bowing ber head.
"Alas! I cannot. It is a secret."
"A secret from me?"
"Yes, dear heart!" sbe cried, clutching
my hands with a wild movement.. "Even
My face must have betrayed the annoy
ance that I felt, for the next second she
hastened to soften aier reply, saying:
At present It is impossible for me to
explain. Think! Poor Mary is lying up
stairs. I can say nothing at present-
nothing you understand."
"Then afterward after the burial you
will tell me wbat you know?"
"Until I discover the truth I am resolved
to maintain silence. All I can tell you Is
that the whole affair Is so remarkable and
astounding that Its explanation will be even
more bewildering than the tangled chain
of circumstances." '
"Then you are actually In possession of
the truth," I remarked with some im
patience. "What use is there to deny It?"
At present I have suspicions grave
ones. That is all." she protested
What Is your theory regarding eoor
Mary's death?" I asked, hoping o learn
something from her.
"Suicide. Of that there seems' not a
shadow of doubt."
I was wondering If she knew of th.
"dead" man's existence. Being in sisterly
confidence with Mary, she probably did.
Did it ever strike you." I asked, "that
the personal appearance of Mr. Courtnay
cnangea very considerably after death?
iou saw the body several tlmesiafter the
discovery. Did you notice the change?"
She looked at me sharply, as though en
deavoring to discern my meaning.
I saw the body several times and cer
tainly noticed a change In .the features.
But surely the countenance rhangea eon
slderably If death is sudden?"
' Quite true," I answered. "But I recol
lect that In making the post morten Sir
Bernard remarked upon the unusual change.
He seemed to have grown fully ten years
older than when I bad seen him alive four
"Well." she asked. "Is that any circum
stance likely to lead to a solution of the
mystery? I don't exactly see the point."
"It msy," I answered ambiguously, pus
iled at her manner and wondering la she
were aware of that roost unaccountable
feature of the conspiracy.
"How?" 'she asked.
But as sbe had steadfastly refused to re
veal her knowledge to me, or the reason of
her residence beneath Courtenay's roof, I
myself claimed the right to be equally
We were still playing at cross-purposes;
therefore I urged her to be frank with me.
But she strenuously resisted all my per
susion. "No. With my poor Mary lying dead
i ran say nothing. Later, when I bave
found the clue for which I am searching,
I will tell you what I know. Till then no
wofd shall pass my Hps." .
I knew too well tbat when my love made
up her mind It was useless to try snd turn
her from her purpose. She wss no shal
low, empty-headed girl, whose opinion
could be turned by any breath of the social
wind or any Invention of the faddlsU; her
mind was so strong and well balanced so
that she always bad the courage of ber con
victions. Her sister, on the contrary,
had been one of those giddy women who
follow every frill and furbelow of fashion,
and who takes up all the latest crazes
with a seriousness worthy of far better ob
jects. In temperament. In disposition, In
character and In strength of mind tbey hsd
been the exact opposite of each other; the
one sister flighty and thoughtless, the
other patient and forebearing, with an
utter disregard for ths hollow artificialities
of society. ,
"But In this matter we may be ot as
sistance to each other," I said, in an en
deavor to persuade her. "As far as I csn
discern, tbe mystery contains no fewer
than seven complete snd distinct secrets.
Te obtain the truth regarding one would
probably furnish tbe key to the whole."
"Tbso you think tbat poor, Mary's un.
foul play?" ih
tlmoly death Is closely connected with ths
tragedy at Kew?" she ssked.
Most certainly. But I do not nare your
opinion as to Bulclde.
What? You suspect
I nodded In the affirmative.
-Ton bdleve that poor Mary wai actu.
ally murdered?" she exclaimed anxiously.
"Have you found marks of violence, then?"
No. I have found nothing. My opinion
is formed upon a surmise.
t hesitated whether to tell her all ths
facts that I had discovered. or I was dis
appointed and annoyed that she enould
still preserve a dogged silence, now that a
reconciliation had been brought about.
"Well." I answered, after a pause, "mr
suspicion of foul play is basod upon logical
conclusions. I have myself been witness
of one most astonishing fact namely, that
she was in the habit of meeting a certain
man clandeetlnely at night, and that their
favorite walk was along tbe river bank."
"What!" she cried, starting up in alarm.
all the color lading "from her face. "You
have actually seen them together?"
"I bave not only seen them, but I have
overheard their conversation," I answered,
surprised at the effect my words bad pro
dured upon her.
Then you already know the truth! she
cried In a wild voice that was almost a
shriek. "Forgive me forgive me, Ralph!
And throwing herself suddenly upon her
knees she looked up into my face lraplor
Ingly, her white hands clasped In an atti
tude of supplication, crying In a voice
broken by emotion: "Forgive me, Ralph!
Have compassion upon me!" and she burst
into a flood of tears, which no caress nor
tender effort of mlno could stem.'
I adored her with a passionate madness
that was beyond control. She was, aa she
had ever been,' my Ideal my all In all.
And yet the mystery surrounding her wss
still Impenetrable, an enigma that grew
more complicated and more impossible ot
