' "'• • •• ' ' SATURDAY EVE,, AP1BL 80. RETRIBUTION. BY "THE DTJCHESS." CHAPTER IX. It is eight o'clock on tho ensuing morn- Ing whon Imey, Millicent'B ninld, rushed sobbing into Mr». lirand's bedroom. "Oh, ma'm I Oh, my young lady I Oh, nui'ml Ohl poor Miss Millicent!" "What! What IB it? Speak, girl!" commands Mrs. Brand, her face growing pale with nervous expectation. "Oh, ma'ml that I should live to see this day! Oh, poor, dear Miss Groyl Her as I was fond ot. Her as never said a word unkind to mortal soul. To see her now, and to think that only yesterday" , "What do you moan, glrlf" cries Mrs. Brand, ringing tho boll frantically. "Good heavens! What has happened to Miss Grey?" "Oh, to only look at her, ma'm—I thought I'd have dropped nt her feet whon I pushed tho door back, never knowing why It was so hard to opon and she lying against It, with her poor head" "The woman will drive mo mndl" cries Mrs. Brand in n choked tone, and, hurrying post hor, made her way to Millicent's bedroom. Already two or three servants havo gathered there. The door is open, and they are stooping over something lying on the floor almost Immediately beyond tho threshold. ; Mrs. Brand, with a little cry, and pale and trembling, rushes forward, tho servants part involuntarily, and there lying upon the ground, to all appearance lifeless, lies MllUcent. Her hoad Is thrown backward, and ouo hand is tightly clinched. "She is fainting. It is only a faint!" cried Mrs. Brand, with an anguish In hor tone that belies tho meaning of her words. "What are you all standing Idle there for?" turning upon the terrified women. "Has no ouo thought pf sending for a doctor?" ' Sho is down on her knees now beside tho palo still form, and has raised the cold head on her arm. "Yes, ma'm; James has gone for a doctor," sobs tho housemaid nervously. "Help me to lift her. So! Oh! bo gentle, girl! There—on her bed. Pull up the blinds—what are they down for at this hour?—one would think sho was doadj" She says this vehemently, with n sort of defiance. But the awful word is too much for her—it has hardly passed her lips when her fictitious anger gives way, she bursts into tears, and, falling on her knees besido the bed, sho' stretches out' her arms to the unconscious bodj\ "Ohl my child) My pretty girll What is it? What has happened to you? Ohl Millicent, speak to me!" Tho doctor entering at this moment, sho calms herself by a supremo effort, for in truth the poor woman is terribly unnerved—no smallest suspicion of tragedy having over come near her before, in all her calm, easy, luxurious life. . "H'ml ha!" says Dr. Thesby, sniffing about him suspiciously as he walks lightly to the bedside and stoops over Mil- playlng made goo'S his cscnpc. It f» tht& information that cnlls forth from Mrs. Brand the question as to what brought, him into her houso ftt all that unseemly midnight "Ah! auntiol" says tho girl, looking at her out of her cushioned arm chair, with grout pathetic eyes that have grown greater because of the regretful tears thit arc filling Ilium. "Do yon not know? Do yon not frness? When yon opened my hand, and the sapphire locket dropped out, did you guess nothing then?" "No, child—no." "That locket is u gift to me." 1 "A gift? I know tlint," impatiently. "A gift from your tlcnlo Timothy, with nil tho rest of VhoM) very beautiful stones. A magnificent gift,, truly." "No I—n gift from the man who has stolen all thosu unrivaled stones!" "Stolon!" Mrs. Brand falls back in her chair, and gazes at Millicent with horror stricken eyes. "What! Gone! Those priceless Bap- phlresl" wles Dr. Thcsby, who is an old friend of Mrs. Brand's, nnd had been shown tho sumptuous gift of Timothy Boyle when llrst presented to Misa Grey. "Ahl" says Millicent, laughing hysterically, "the burglar evidently did not think them, as you do, priceless. No doubt ho is already pricing them—Is arranging how to break thorn up and sell them—breaking up—my—lovely—ueck- let^ray beautiful"— Here, being still very weak, sho gives up her mournful description, and subsides into a Btorm of tears. "There, there, darling! Oh, don't cry like that! Think of yo\w weak state. But what an audacious thing! Bless me, what will your uncle say? Now, my dearest love, 1 implore you to control yourself. Remember how that unmitigated villnJn nearly deprived you of your life only a few short hours ago. In this very chamber, Dr. Thesby. Oh! to think of it I It must have almost happened on this very spot!" Here she grows tragic, and speaks in a deep bass tone that she believes befits the occasion. "Ohl Millicent, darling, you will break my heart —your old auntie's heart—if you keep on sobbing like that. Dear! dearl dear! to think that those sapphires—heirlooms, doctor—and the finest in England—indeed, in Europe, I might safely say- are now being melted down—that is, broken np, or whatever it is those torriblo men do to them—while wo are sitting inactive here! Can nothing be done? Ohl doctor—l)r. Thesby! What is the matter with her now?—has that wretch succeeded in killing her after all?" Millicont, In fact, driven to despair by this prolonged lament, has gone into vio lent hysterics. "No, ma'm, he hasn't," says tho doctor, with severe meaning, who had tried to stem tho flow of Mrs. Brand's eloquence, eagerly but ineffectually, during tho past live minutes.

It is about five in tho afternoon when Nadine rushes up tho stairs, horrified by what she has just heard In tho hall, and flings herself into hor friend's arras, "Such a thing to happen to yon!" she cries, in her little rapid fashion. "The miscreant!—the assassin! Oh, Millicent, when Brown" (the butler) "stopped me in the hall to tell mo the dreadful news I nearly fainted. Only the idea of seeing you face to face to make sure of your escape sustained me, and gave me strength to get hero." Indeed, she is as pale as a ghost, and her eyes are full of tears. Sweet eyes, as full of love as tears, "Well, now you have seen me," with a Ready-Made Coffins, Metalio Cases, Caskets And Burial Robes UBFor Ladles, Gentlemen and Ohililror.

Certainly none that Is not under lock and koyinmy own room." "Nevertheless, there is chloroform horo, or has been," says the doctor, sniffing again. He has boon examining Millicent while speaking, and now calls for certain things to bo brought him by tho attending servants. Seeing Mrs. Brand's distress, ho turns kindly to her. "I can't quite make it out yet, but pray compose yourself, my dear madame. Your niece is by no means beyond the power of man yet." And, indeed, at the expiration of half on hour or so Millicent is so far recovered as to bo ablo to smile upon them, and whisper a word or two to her aunt. "No whispering, I ; thlnk—no confidences just yet," says Dr. Thesby, rubbing his hands. "Though I agree with 'you, ray dear lady, that no time should be lost about seeing into this—er—truly extraordinary affair. What d'ye say, my good woman," turning sharply to ono ot tho maids. "A handkerchief, oh? Picked up by you? Lying on Miss Groy's face—or partly BO? oh? eh? Think what you are saying now, my good girl, as I dare say you will havo to repeat It pretty often later on." Yes. The girl had picked it up whon first she stooped over Miss Grey. It was not exactly on her face, but looked as if it had slipped off It. Tho doctor, folding it neatly, puts it in his breast pocket. "Important evidence, madamol If you will penult mo, I will take clmrgo of it. Heavily saturated with chloroform, I should say, from tho strength of the aroma that still clings to It." "I<et mo see it," Bays Millicont suddenly, in a voice BO much stronger and with such excitement on her pale face that the doctor thinks it bettor to accede to hor roiiuost, while, still entreating her to "Bo calm!—bo calm! and above all things to bo calm!" "As If," snid Millicent afterward to Nadine, "any ono could be oxpccoted to be calm who had Just escaped being murdered, and had had tho finest sapphires in Enlgaud Htolon from her!" Tho handkerchief is a largo, coarse, common ono, whlto In color, nnd of Buch a texture IIB might be nsad by a respectable artisan on u holiday making. "It is a oluw," nays the doctor triumphantly; but j\llll|<:imt, though aho could not Imvo put liar conviction into words, fools that it will never help to bring the real offender to justice. "But what brought tho mnu here— that is what I want to know?" demands Mrs. Brand, with a littlo spreading of her hands, when tho doctor has called some hours Inter to find his pntlout has been Bleeping quietly during his absence, and has only rousod to consciousness again upon his entrance. "Not n word Imvo I lot her speak—not a word,"»ay» Mrs. Brand, with vury pardonable prido, considering tho extent of her curiosity. "Well. I must speak now," murmurs Millicont, still very feebly, but with a decided Increase of strength that tho doctor finds very satisfactory. "Why, wo Bhall luivo hor downstairs in, no time," declares ha Jovially. Then Mtlllcunt launches into a description of tho man who had thrown a handkerchief over hor face and left hur to A BltVJfN'W UTS j live or dip, a» chMioe dictated, while ho laugh, and n gentle shake udministerei! to tho trembling Nadine, "cheer np a bit nnd let the blood flow into those wm cheeks. Talking about blood flowing I'm glad mine was not lot loose las- night." "Ohl don't—don't!" says N T ndine shuddering violently. "Well, there, there. 1 havo unnerved you, and I ought to bo ashamed of my self. But tho fact Is, I am iinnervcd my self, only my nervousness has tho offec of raising a sense of ridicule within mo I cannot keep from jesting on last night's adventure, though I dare say to morrow I Bhall be prostrated. It is strange excitement, bettor not indulged Well! it is an ill wind that blows nobody good. You cannot compel me, tyran that you are! to stammei over my Ger man to-day." An arrangement had been'entered int between them some weeks ago, when Millicent had been brought out, and wa supposed to havo left her chidhood nnt the schoolroom behind her. Nadine for many reasous, would not consent t bo hor companion. Ono was because sh could not well leave her mother; anothe because of hor engagement to Paul Ai nerloy; another (was it so very import ant?) biicauso sho could not give up th tuition of Mr. Duran's littlo daughter So Millicent had squared matters by de claring to her auntie that though sh considered she knew as much music as would carry her on through life, he knowledge of Gorman was still singularl deficient, and auntie, delighted at' th' trait of intellectual diligence in ho nieco, had at once requested Miss Roch to continue hor throo visits a week t Park lano as heretofore. "Tell mo about it, "says Nadine breathlessly, hor big blue eyes enlarged with fear nnd curiosity. She has so'ated herself on a dainty prio dlou, and is leaning forward with clasped hands in an attitude highly suggestive of prayer, and there- tore highly suited to the chair. Millicont, nothing loath, makes her a presont of tho entire scene from beginning to end. "Ho might hove been » much worse burglar, all things considered, nnd there was quite a touch of chivalry—a suspicion of Claude Duval—In tho fact of his making mo a present of my own locket," sho says, still unablo to refrain from turning tho whole thing into ridicule. "To go to the very root of tho matter, it must bo confessed that I am tho proud possessor of his heart. Ho left mo that at least," "Tho coward!" says Nadino, clasping her protty hands, "to attack alono ono poor woman! But, Millicont, from whut you toll me, I—I don't think tho burglar could havo boon qulto a common man, Was hu tall—Imnvlsomo?" "Handsome! Why, I couldn't see ft feature in his face. You don't suppose that that sort of person comos around with an open, ingenuous countenance, ready for all mon's iimnocUon? If so, you aro mistaken, My burglar cnrao with a mask that prevented mo from seeing tho chlHuh'd features that I fuel convinced lay beneath it. Altogether, ho was not of Iho common, every day lot that ono moots. Ilo was u departure from Iho regular lilies. Ho WUH Htrmiija K> imt! Htrungu! And yot" Suddenly tho half mocking, wholly gay air sho has UNod hitherto drops from her, and sho turns upon Nadine a startled glance. She loam toward her, and lay- Ing hor hand upon hor ahoulilcru, uubjooW er to nn Mlifliiative Bcrntlny. "1 must spcnki I, muBt tell you," she wy» at inst, "Tt 1ms weighed Upon me Tor since, and—ftnd—tho others wotud otiKlder it in the light of n nightmare, r else say tho Idea: aroso from o feeling f nervous horror; nut. it did not." "What is It, MilHccntf You forget t onot understand," says Nadino, a little wod by the solemnity of the other's lanco. "Just this: that that terrible burglar, roin tho time ho entered my room to tho lino he left it, seemed strangely famll- nr, I cannot account for it. His voice never heard before. He. was dressed in ho dollies of n common wofkmnn. nnd I mow no workman. His faco, indeed, vns hidden" Sho stops nbruptly n» though oppressed y soino hidden' thought. "Yes, It was hidden," sho• snys at last. 'Yot I nm pursued by a lildcous fear hat if 1 co lid have removed Hint mnfck ho fealnroB would Imvo been fnmillnr to me!" • . . Sho sinks back in her clinir, looking mlo and exhausted. "ft is mere nervousness," Buys Nndino omlcrly. "A chimera arising from an Overwrought sensibility. Do not think if him again, darling. Host, und time vlll euro you <if that foolish phantasy." 'Nothing will euro mo of the certainty ,lmt a {lice"well known to mo lay behind hat humble mask," returns Millicent vilh n shudder. . Sho rallit-s a Jittlo nf tor a while, and a swift smile curves her lips. 'Wo are a doomed family," sho says (?r.yly.. "A prey to burglars.- I«'irstiny unit, Lady Valworth's, diamonds disappear, not to be restored by illl the de- ;cctivo power In England, nnd now, my sapphires! Prior. Uncle Timothy! he gave much of his life to a contemplation >f those stones, nnd now a vulgar crimi- ml ia tho possessor of them. It is very cruol of me to laugh, is it not? Kspecially is I am the only 0113 that can seo a ;omicnl wide of the affair. Yes, I urn sorry ,hat 1 urn not more sorry because of .heir disappearance." 'JIiis Mr. Boyle yet heard of their jiing stolen?" "Not yet. He, wus to have been here his 'morning, but" "lie wns here this morning, darling," nays Mrs. Brand, who has just entered he room and heard the drift of the conversation, "but yon wore then so weak hat of course I could not soo him. He leard nothing, as I told Brown to be silent aboiit our sensation to any caller— BO he merely loft word that ho hoped your headache would bo better soon (I suggested headache to Brown as a general and safe sort of not at home), and :hat;he would call again to-morrow morning." 'Wonderfully attentive for him," says Millicont, smoothing down the laces of licr loose gown. 'Dear follow! Ho is' always all he ought to be! So like his good father," says Mrs. Brand effusively. 'Inspector Dunn has just been here," goes! on Mrs. Brand presently. "He seems n clever man, anil holds out great dopes of being ablo to capture the robber and restore to you your sapphires. I ran up nt once to tell you. He seems to thiuk it will bo difficult to get rid of the sapphires, even should the robber go to Antwerp or some of those foreign [ilaces. All the shipping ports are being closely watched. He really gave. me great hope. Your unclo Timothy has been hero on and off nil day, but I would not let him see you, he was so excited. Of course ho feels tho loss of the jewels. He thought a groat deal of them. That Is hardly to be wondered at, my dear Xa- Mor» Fttets, . Branwuo, Iw*.

Be sure you come as early as you can on Thursday; Millicentis always so much better when slio has had an hour with you." Having kissed Nadjne, ot whom indeed she is extremely fond, Mrs. Brand ushers her down the staircase and through the hall. ICONTINOEI) NEXT WBEK.) Excitement In Texas.
