It was high Loon the next day when they gathered .'or breakfast. Paul was a little lame and stiff, but otherwise none the worse 'or his experience. Miss Lebourgeois •as as blooming as if spending hours n a night-fog was her usual evening pastime. Paul was hardly through jreakfast when a telegram was landed to him. It was from Archer, dated New York, and asked Paul to meet Archer in the city on Monday on an im- jortant matter, as early in the day as was convenient. Paul had intended to jxtend his visit over Monday, pleading his semi-invalidship to himself as an excuse. But A'cher's telegram really eft him no excuse but to go. It was, lowever, a rendinff of his heart-strings. tt was true, he had not said a word of ove to Miss Lebourgeois, and should not now under any circumstances. It looked too much like taking advantage of their peculiar relations. Even if he could bring himself to do it, Paul felt sure that he would offend her delicacy and gain nothing by it in the end. But It was very sweet to be in her society. The very tones of her voice had grown very dear to Paul. But if he must tear himself away, it behooved aim to make the most of the precious moments yet remaining to him. So Paul and Miss Lebourgeois wandered off down to her bower to talk over their strange experience. Frank sent a parting- injunction to be sure and let rowing alone, an injunction which they received with the silent scorn it deserved. Their conversation would not be vary interesting to third parties, but it was immensely satisfactory to themselves. It had reached the stage where the emphasis on a small word like "indeed" can express an infinite amount of meaning. Frank was about as successful in finding and thanking the stranger as his sister anticipated he would be. The island belonged to a New York gentleman, who had gone to Europe for the summer, and had been rented to a stranger, who was known as "Mr. Roberta." H« kept bachelor's hall there, and his servants, whom alone Frank saw, were evidently very unwilling to say anything about him, or else had nothing to say. Mr. Roberts had gone to New Savan the first thing that morning, . supposedly on the way to New York. Frank had to content himself with leaving- a card, on which ho penciled rsome hearty worda of acknowledgment. All went to bed early that evening, and got up early the next morning to see Paul off by tie first train. HU parting with Miss Lebourgeois was purely conventional. Mrs. Lebourgeois and Frank were both present. In fact, Frank accompanied Paul to New York, as he had business there himself. Archer was staying at the Astor ;house, to which Paul made his way as quickly as the elevated road could carry him. After the first cordial greetings, the two betook themselves to Archer's room, where Archer lost no- time in getting down to business. "This matter," said Archer, '•concerns in a way our late lamented friend, the Count." "What, he has not come to life again?" asked Paul. "Hardly," replied Archer; "But his shade or something is still working the very mischief in present affairs. You know," Archer continued, "that the Count managed shrewdly to increase the very tidy sum he obtained by murder or assassination from that not • over clever Englishman, the late Kobert Graham. That gnm was somewhere about 850,000 over and above what the Count put into his •atural father's chateau, which he obtained by passing himself oS as the natural heir. One would naturally suppose that Robert Graham's son. having discovered this seme tidy sum awaiting hie proof of identity in the hands of the trustee of the St. Louis Count, womld lose no unnecessary time in proving that identity; would, in. fact, safl >y the first steamer to America, and would take the first train out of New York for H Louis. »»£Sr* th$ V°o|l3i wS ZP 9t Sis way rejoicing. But young'Robert Graham, son of the man murdered ou» in Australia by our friend, the Count, contrary to all the laws of human nature fox such cases made and provided, does nothing of the sort. On learning- the great news which make* out or tarn a fairly wen-to-do man, ne indeed leaves England, but not for America. He goes, instead, to France and digs out tbat old chateau, in Tremblay, where our lamented friend, the Count, proposed to spread himself as the lord of the manor. Young Graham's object seems to have been, so far as he can be said to have had an object, to find out whether any heirs of the real Count were likely to turn up to dispute his possible possession of the chateau. Not a sign of an heir ha,s yet, so far as I know, put in an appearance. There are, however, certain legal technicalities of French law which stand in the way of the possession of the chateau by a foreigner, under circumstanc«s so peculiar and extraordinary. These technicalities concern the disposition of the prop- e»ty in case any heirs should turn up kereafter. The family of the real Count seems to hare run completely out. Well, young Graham, having made yooA certain right* at 4em»orary pouewion, anbject to future po*kiWZI- ties of ejectment, and having- satisfied himself that he had accomplished all that he can just now, took a French line boat for America, presumably with a view to the Count's St Louis fund*. He landed, went to the Brevoort.-stayed there over one night, and then disappeared, bag and baggage, leaving no trace behind. Another thing, young Graham was not so hard up as I supposed he was, when I first told his tale to you in connection with the Count's affairs. It is true that his i mother was only the daughter of 'poor, j but respectable parents,' when Eobert j Graham married her. But a gentle! man, old and eccentric, who knew Mrs. [ Graham and the romantic story of _ner son, took quite a fancy to him. Dying, he left the boy enough to educate him, and make him independent. The marriage of Graham occurred, too, more years ago than I supposed, and young Graham is not a hoy, but a roan past 21. Now for your part in this mystery. The only solution, which Detective Keene—he of Scotland Yard, in whose hands, of course, the matter has been placed—and myself can reach, is that'young Graham, being evidently eccentric, and being also greatiy fascinated with the late Count and his relatives,has also become interested in some absurd way with the Lebourgeoises, and is following them up. You have just come from Mrs. Lebourgeois' house. You are in constant communication with Frank Lebourgeois—I will not say with Miss Lebourgeois, don't blush—and can tell us if there is any clue worth troubling with on the supposition of young Graham's disappearance as I have outlined it." Paul did not answer at first. After thinking a moment, he asked what sort of a looking man young Graham was. "That I don't know," replied Archer. "Unluckily Keene, who was called out •f the city this morning, or he would have met you here with me, can alone give you the description. Why? Have vou seen anyone who might answer for a clue?" Paul confessed that he had, and told Miss Lebourireois' strange experience la being constantly followed apparently .by a man so anxious to conceal his identity, a man of such good pluck and ready resource in an emergency, such as that of the cruise in the fog. "That's the man! that's Graham to a certainty," said Archer, with earnestness, as Paul concluded. "I wish Keene were here to compare notes on your report to Miss Lebourgeois' hasty description of him. Well, we must wait until Keene returns this evening. Neither your stranger's wide-brimmed hat nor his island rented for the summer, will probably be disposed of in that short interim; so let's talk about other matters." Keene came back that evening. He was as sure as Archer had been that he was on the right track. He took the first train on Tuesday morning for Stony Creek. He found the island, but the house was closed and the servants were gone. There was no one who could tell what tad become of the man. in. the shadow. to ere wouia s'nii be a {rood newspape* •tory in the man under the hat. Archer had brought with him to New York » new assignment for Paul. "Cack," the head of the Orb, believed that St. Louis had such a large German and otherfor- eien population that it would pay ils paper to establish a direct correspondence service abroad. He had selected Paul as the man to conduct it, and Paul was now asked to take tlte next steamer for the other side. Paul was very ready to undertake the commission, even if it did separate him from Miss Lebonrg-eois. He knew. Indeed, that it AVQuid be pnly. for a. time, as Frank Had business a~broaa early in the fall, and would go over, taking his mother and sister with him. So Paul on every score gave quick assent to the proposition, and made ready to sail that Saturday on the Aurania. He simply, dropped a line to Frank, telling him of his change of plans, and of his address in London, in. which city were to be his headquarters. Archer impressed it upon him that no news would be read with livelier interest in St. Lonis than news about young- Robert Graham; the sort of man he was, and why, if it could he found out, he had made the trip across the Atlantic, and then failed to pui ia hi« claim personally for the money awaiting him in that city. Paul regarded the irabject in the same Hght that Archer did, and determined to make Graham a first subject of investigation Paul's voyage was monotonously pleasant in weather and ship friends, exceot for one incident. He noticed the first day out a man about the build of the stranger down at Stony Creek, who wore a soft hat and great big gog- The goggles were nevor off—unless at night. As the man had paid for a state-room ali to himself, there was no way of finding out whether or not he wore them to bed with him.. The man was not known as "Mr. Roberts," but as "Mr. Williams." That was the maiden name of the girl Robert Graham had married. Paul tried again and again to work a chance encounter and again to work a chance encounter with "Mr. Williams," but all to no pur- j j^ pose. He could hardly go up and ask a man named Williams whether he was not a man named Roberts, who had helped to save his life off tbe Sound coastr—at least without a better excuse than any he had at hand. If a man wanted to be mysterious, and did not obtrude his mysteriousness on those whom he met, it was his legal and moral right to do it. So Paul left the steamer at Liverpool with no tangible proof that he had again encountered Kobert Graham. But after he had presented his letters ol introduction and tad established his news bureau, he made it hi* first business to run down to Southampton, in a village adjacent to which young Eobert had been brought ' up. The -old country people there were ready enough to talk about him—and his family. They thought a great deal of his mother—although they did not regard the family with admiration. They had been "queer folks," one or two of them had been insane, and committed suicide, As for young Robert, he had evidently been a moody, if not a morose boy. He had "kept out of folks' way." Nothing rude or vicious could he alleged of hini^ Simply he liked to keep by himself, and took no pains to conceal his feeling of aversion for his kind- He was a very athletic boy, and sometimes came out of his self-seclusion to mingle in their games and contest* with the other .boys. He usually was a victor. He passed a great deal of his time in sailing in a boat he had all by himself. Once in a while he had » chance to race with some other boat, and in the excitement he came the nearest he erer did to being like other people. _ ***". Since he had come into his fortune, he had paid but few visits to his Former home. "Folks thought" that he liked it best in France; that h» passed a great deal of his time at | Tremblay, where the Count had made j his investment. This did not add to '• his popularity. Why should he not, now that he was rich, set up his horn* j where his home had always been, and live like an English ge&tleman? Paul called on the venerable rector of the parish, a very hospitable old gentleman, explained who he was and how associated indirectly with Eobert Giaham's history, and obtained from him a judgment that was more charitable. The rector thought that young Graham was a boy of good parts and good disposition, but inherited a morbid strain. His foster-mother, so the rector said, had made a mistake by acquainting him too early with the history of his parentage. It had preyed upon his mind, and increased a disposition to melancholy. Young Graham had brooded over it alii until his mind had received a certain twist. All this tallied so well with Paul's thoory of the identity of the stranger on the island with Eobert Graham, that Pad determined to look him up in the French chateau tbe following week. Paul was then to go to Berlin on business, and the opportunity to call at Tremblay on the way was too good to be passed over. At Paris Paul made an acquaintance who greatly facilitated his plan. It was that of a priest who knew Eobert Graham well. He described Graham a* a Roman Catholic, who had done a poor in. the vicinity of Tremblay. When he found that Paul had known the bogus Count, and JSTING VERSUS PLOWING. The lAstur Beoimmeii<Jed For Uffht, Sandy Land and th« Plow For Heavy Clay. Experience and observation in northeastern Nebraska lead a correspondent of Farm, Field and Fireside to the following statements: Wbere we have a light sandy and a heavy clay soil right In the same neighborhood and oftPn npon tba same farm I believe that it pays best to list tbe light land, while for the heavy land I would say plow tbe ground good and plant with a check row planter, and as soon aa plauted barrow good to kill any weeds tbat may have started since plowing, and then harrow once or twice more before the corn is large enongh to cultivate. This harrowing serves a double purpose, tbat of retaining tbe moisture near the surface, which insures a more perfect germination of the seed, and that of preventing the land from baking, which so often occnrs upon clay land. I also keep the weeds in check until tbe corn is Jarge enough to allow a good job of cultivating being done tbe first time over the field. Being able to cultivate the field both ways, it is not a very difficult matter to keep a field of corn reasonably clear of weeds, and upon such laud the increased yield over listing will be enough to well repay one for all tbe extra labor it requires. It also leaves tbe land in a much better condition for tbe nest year's crop. For light land listing seems to have tbe advantage. It saves a considerable amount of labor, thereby enabling one to handle a much larger area of corn than when tbe land has to be plowed before it is planted. And tbe disadvantages of listing are not as objectionable upon sandy land as upon clay. As sandy laud will not wash as easily as clay, it is not as liable to be damaged by heavy rains, and there are no clods to roll in upon the corn to damage it. Some persons advocate listing stubble land in the fall and then splitting the ridges with tbe lister when ready to plant. This gives a niora thorough stirring of tbe soil and, gives better results, espe- heavy land is listed. that continual listing If mothers would cast aside foolish, prudery, and impart to their daughters th« knowledge that they, themselves, have acquired by years of suffering; they would be forced to spend, fewer hours of anxious attendance at the bedsides of sick daughters.

I believe tbat such land needs a good, deep and thorough plovang at least once every two years, and an I believe in rotation of crops I think it is best to sow tbe land to some small grain crop each year tbat it is not plowed; hence I bave not much use for tbe lister upon clay land- Disking For Corn. A few years ago planting coin on ground which had been prepared in any other way tbaii by plowing with tbe stirring plow and then smoothed and reduced to good tilth with the roller and barrow would bave been regarded as an agricultural heresy, but now, as the Iowa Homestead tells, it is not uncommon to see farmers who are growing com after corn in a sis. or even a four crop rotation prepare tbe ground with tbe disk instead of the plow. The journal mentioned affirms tbat if the laud has been in clover and only one corn crop taken from it since the clover was turned under, it will be in fine condition to prepare with the disk, and many claim tbat better corn can be grown with this kind of preparation tban when it is done in tbe usual way with tbe plow. Some farmers do not think this kind of preparation effects inncb saving of labor, while others do. Many do not keep a large enough force of teams to work a disk as it should be worked, wbile others do not follow a rotation that keeps tbe ground clean enough for tbis kind of preparation. They hitch two horses to a plow and work day after day until at length they are ready to plant. In disking one can disk twice or double disk as may be preferred, there being no difference except tbat"with double disking there are no ridges or "dead furrows." The stalks must be broken before tbe frost is all ont of tbe ground or harrowed on a dry day and raked and burned, otherwise tbe corn will not work so well nor will tbe cultivator, when the time comes to use it. The field is prepared a day or two before planting time and is then harrowed two or three timea before planting. Trimming Sngr» Beet*.
