Joy there, misery horol Lady Valworth pnshcs back the por- tlore, and with a slow and heavy tread advances to whore the motionless flguro Is Heated npon a chair, his head burled on the arms that are lying upon the table. "Qranltl" whispers she tremulously. Ho starts to his feet with an oath, and turns,a stormy face to hers. "What, cannot I bo left alono oven now? What brings you here? IB there no rest—no peace?" "It, Is only I, my dear—your mother I" Her voice breaks. "Oh, my chlldl my son I rny darling! It Is your mother, dear —your own mother! Did you think anything could make any difference to mef" The poor woman flings herself on the ground beside him and encircles him with her arms. "I know you were alone," she goes on eagerly. "I would have como sooner, but I—I was not very well. The moment I Could, however, J came to you. I could not bear to picture you sitting hero all by yourself, and perhaps believing your poor mother was holding aloof." "You had done better had you so held yourself." "Oh, Gnmit! do not so speak to niel Do not repulse me!" She is still kneeling beside him, trying do draw his dark, sullen face to look at her; and 7iow she takes his hand and holds It In fondling fashion against her bosom. He Is onco more her child, her boy, her llttlo one; in trouble and disgrace—In direst griof—and to whom then should ho come but to his mother? "My darling, why did you not trust me?" she says In a low, painful whisper. "I would have given them to you. I could have managed in some way. Yes—I would have given them." "They were not yours to give"—this allusion to tho stolon diamonds hardens his heart again, though not toward her— "they belonged to Sir Thomas. However"—breaking off savagely and dragging his baud roughly out of hers—"it Is too late to dls UBS what is over and done. If you have come hero to maunder about my crimes, I warn you I will have none of it." "No, no, dear; not another word shall be said." Going closer to him she tries to press him into a chair. "Sitdownnow and let us talk of your plans," she wliis- pors soothingly. /'Plans?" Ho glances at her-vaguely, as though ho hardly understands; plainly ho has not been listening. Then suddenly his (ace flushes; the veins swell upon his temples. "Where Is she?" he cries Jn a vehement tone. "She? Millieent" "Pshaw! No. Sho who betrayed me: that fair devil, Nodine." "Sho is down stairs. Sho has been very 111," says tho mother trembling. "Did I hurt her? Did she feel? Did she snffer?" His tone Is exultant, yet there is a fierce agony In It. "I hope so.

Dirt you mark how she shrunk and cowered away from me? How she paled, and glanced at me as though perdition lay in the sight of mo?" ' Ho is glancing over his mother's shoulder toward tho opposite wall. His eyes are dark nnd wild; ho is gazing at something. That past sceno in tho library Is again before him—is again being enacted —brought to light by his disordered fnucy. ; .; "Gnmit, think of something else,' 1 implores his mother, in a frightened manner. His voice, his gestures, terrify her. "Prom mo sho shrunk—to turn to him I How her eye lit as she saw him I To him sho cried £jr protection from me I Sho hold out her arms to him! She clung to himl" His breath is coming in painful gasps. "Thore was adoration In tho glance sho' directed at himl To gain such u glance I would have died. Welll" ho stretches out his arms and then he clasps Ills head, "because of such a glance I have died. She has slain mo I" "Granit, my poor boy, do not talk so .wildlj. Forget this girl; think now of what is tho best thing for you to do." "I have thought of that—that is all arranged." His tono is impatient. "Where nro you going, darling?" she asks, faintly. "Nowhere." His manner is dull and listless. "Rouse yourself," entreats sho, "you must go for awhile. You say you have arranged all. Tell mo, then, whore you urogolngl" "A long journey." "Long Journeys nowadays can bo compassed in a very llttlo while." "That is true. Mine will bo the shortest passage on record," ho draws his breath sharply. "What happened to her, when I loft?" "She fainted. Mr. Durau" "Koop his name out of it, can't you?" Interrupts ho, violently. "Go onl Sho fuintoU. \VolJ, what then?" "They had considerable dlftlculty in recovering her, I Imvo been told. I was not there," says Lndy Valworth, nervously. "Sho was naturally a good deal upset by tho whole affair. I suppose you frlght- oned her." "You say I hurt her." "You sent her with Borne force against tho wall. You did not mean It," hastily —"but when one is agitated as you were, one hardly knows what one Is doing. "Yon" anxiously—"must not take that so much to heart; you did her no real harm. You must not ho uneasy," "Take it to heart? I wish I had killed herl" Tho words come with a hiss through his clinched tooth; his face is white and distorted with passion. "That she should live, and llvo with him, Is tho galling thought; that Is more than I can .boar, How her little white lingers fastened ou his arm I Liar that sho Isl how Bho deceived and ruined inol Uody and soul nho has destroyed," "Oil, not your soul, darling I Thoro is time—repentance." "There is very llttlo tlino now and I urn unrepentant." Ho throws up his head and points to tho window. Tho lamps In (ho room aro waning, and through the closely curtain od window tho ilrsUtrcaUH of coming morn nro Stirling with u wirslnti>ncy that will not bo donli'd. Day Is breaking, nn d with It his mother's heart. The cruel Hunt will tear him from liur, will carry him—whlthor? "You Imvo not told me whom you aro going," shu says, pressing hor hand «»u(nst her heart to still Us throbbing. ,<L*,\ iiU Jt.d "I cnn toll no one Ihnt." "Whntl not your mother? Grahtt, do not fear, Twill betray you; anything you sny to mo now will bo sacred. Tell me whero It is you mean to go." "I cannot." "l!ut why—why?'' "For the simple reason that I don't know myself." There Is n curious gleam In his eyes that disturbs her and makes her forget (ho flippancy of his tone. "It Is to a strange land I will weud my way before tho day is very much older. A stranger in a strange land I My reception will bo n cold one, or perchance a hot one." Ho laughs wildly. His merriment is, however, shortlived, breaking olt almost as it began, and ending in a dismal silence. "Yon aro thinking of Africa," inys his mother, trembling, she scarcely knows why. "If you still refuse to let me know exactly where, you are going, at least promise you will writo to me. Gruult, my dear, dear son, promise me that." "I will promise you anything you like, though I doubt if you would care to keep up the correspondence." There .is something terrible In his manner, which has grown frivolous in a ghastly way, and his face is livid. "She will live aud prosper," ho says ineonsequcntly as It seems to Lady Vnhvorth; "but sho will have to remember. I will compel her to do that! Anil remember you," laying his baud roughly upon his mother's shoulder, "ro- membcr well that my last words were that sho was responsible for all I" "I will not believe these are your last words. You will return to me, when all this has blown over you will return, if even for a month or so. Promise mo that, too, Gnmit." "From where I am going no man returns." "That Is not true. There is no plnco on earth from which you cannot como back to me, It you only will." "No place on eiirlhl" He repeats hor words slowly. "My place on earth will know mo no more." Hosocuiu to wander away from the actual meaning of her words to the mere sound of them. "I have no longer any place on earth," ho says dreamily. "You have a place in my heart always," cries she, with a sudden burst of weeping. She throws her arms round him, nnd clings to him in an embrace that is full of despair. "Alas I my one child I my pretty baby I that it should come to this," sho moans, blttcrlj'. "You will not forget my message to her?" Though ho is supporting her half fainting form, he hardly heeds her; her words bear no meaning to him. His mind is ever with tho girl who had unconsciously betrayed him, whom ho has loved—whom he still loves, with a terrible intensity. < "I shall forget nothing. When do you start?" "When you leave me." "There will be no train, darlVng, uutil 7 o'clock." "I shall require no train." "But how, then, will you go?" Again ho bursts .into that loud discordant laughter that chills the blood in hor .veins. "Do not bo uneasy about me. I have prepared for myself • a mode of transit swifter than any train. Poufl Steam will bo slow to it." "You do not trust mo," she says sorrowfully, still unsuspecting, still dead to the warning that his words, his face, his manner, should havo given her. of ho further tiso. It Is as well i Alllllcent should have them again. Ho tlliiKfi the pi'ti aside, mid, rUIng to his feet, pnciw hurriedly up and down I ho room, lie cnn walk now. Hut 4lke u Hash It bursts upon him that soon movement will he impossible. Thcro upon tho carpet he lies like a »tlck—a stone! The great gmml fever nf living Is tearing through his relnsi. Ilia pulses throb, his heart bents—thon; nvo years of life within tho tall, slender, I'n.ily built frame that looks Its las:!, limmgh the open window. The early mornlin. air, fresh nnd frugrant, rushes gayly In. Heavens! how fair the world Is! Was It ever HT fair as to-day? Ho takes up the revolver again and lifts it to his mouth. There Is a short hesitation. His mind (ravels backward. His brain reels. There!—there! she IB before him again! A slight form, clothed all In palest blue. A face illvlnol Hcsr lovely arms! Her eyes—dark—liquid. See, now, they gleam for—Duninl Curse himl To him she holds out her hands. To him she gives hersoIf. She turns A groan of agonized remembrance bursts from his lips. Then follows n sharp report! It rings through thehousel He sways, and a corpse, disfigured in a horrible manner, falls heavily to the ground. All Is over. Through tho window the light breeze enters merrily, and floating downward, lifts the hair, that Is still iinwel, from tho dead man's bead, and softly, delicately, ploys with it. There Is only the breeze. All other motion Is gone. So intense is the silence that reigns within this chamber, that a tiny lilrd, emboldened by it, perches on the sill of tho window, and breaks forth Into a morning enrol, loud and shrill. A carol I A requiem rather! And now the silence is broken. Through the passages beyond comes the sound of hurrying feet. 'Chore is one that runs bo- fore tho others. Nearer, nearer they come, and still the bird carols, tho wind plays— tho dead man lies there, careless—unknowing. A touch npon the handle of the door. The wind still revels In lifeless tresses, but the bird has flown away. The door opens Upon the threshold stands—hie mother. THE END. I trust yon entirely. I trust yon with .my last message—to herl Now go." "I shall see you again?" entreats she, lingering. "I hope not I I hope from my soul notl" For the first time his composure seems to desert him. Ho grows ghastly pale, and a (It of shivering seizes upon him. "You aro ill—you are sufferingl" cries his mother quickly. "No. It Is nothing. Only gol I must be alone for awhile, and my time is short. Good-by. Stooping, he presses his lips to hor forehead, "For tho moment?" she answers anxiously. "Good-by." There Is no denial other question In his manner, and she is fain to bo content with it. She clings to him, nnd embraces him warmly; an embrace ho returns in kind. She moves as if to leave him. Almost as sho reaches tho door, his voice stops her. "One word," he says huskily. "Do not—do not bo unkind to herl When I am gone, do not show or fool resentment toward herl" Ho makes hor a sign with his hand to declare he has said all he had called hor to hear, and giing out, she closes tho door behind her. Tho sound of her retreating footsteps has died away. He is alono I He stretches out his arms wearily, as one might who has Just Hung from him some cruel burden, and drawing back the curtains, opens wide the window and gazes out upon tho growing day. Already tho sun has ilionnk'd tho heavens, and from tho eait soft rosy bars of tremulous light are descending upon (he distant hill tops. From among tho laurels conies tho thrilling music of Innumerable birds; from tho wood tho cooing of tho gontlo pigeons. A rose that has climbed up tho wall, more ambitious than its fellows, thrusts Its scented petals into his hand. Mechanically he accepts tho gift, and breaking tho (lower from its stem, inhales its perfmno.

The Greatest Curative Success of the Age— A Voice from the People. No medicine Introduced to tho public ha» ever inot wltli the siietiesu accorded to Hop Hitters. It Htiuuls to-dny the bunt known curative article In the world. Itn marvelous renown Is not duo to thfi advertising It, him received. It is famous'by rcnaon of Its Inherent virtues. 11 does nil that Is claimed for It. It Is the most powerful; speedy and effective agent known for tlio building up of debilitated systems. The following witnesses nro offered to prove this i What it Did'for an Old Lady. Coshocton Station, jV.

Four years ago, 1 had a slight shock of palsy, which unnerved me to such an extent that tho least excitement would make me shako like tho ague. Lust Jluy 1 was'induced to try Hop Bitters. 1 used one bottle, but did not see any change; another did so change my nerves that they are now as steady as they ever were. 11 used to take both hands to writo, but now my good right hand writes this. Now, If you continue: to manufacture as honest and good an article as you do, you will accumulate an honest fortune, and confer the greatest blessing on your fellow-men that was ever conferred on mankind. TIJUBCRCII. A Husband's Testimony. My wife was troubled for years wlth'blotches, moth patches and pimples on her face, which nearly annoyed the life out of her. - She spent many dollars on tho thousand infallible (I) cures, with nothing but injurious .effects. A lady friend, of Syracuse, N. Y., who had had similar experience and had been cured with Hop Bitters, induced her to try it. One bottle Jms made her face as smooth, fair and soft as a child's and given her such health that It seems almost a miracle. A MEMBER OF CANADIAN PARLIAMENT. A Rich Lady's Experience. I traveled all over Europe and other foreign countries at a cost of thousands of dollars, in search of health and found It not. I returned discouraged and disheartened, and was restored to real youthful health and spirits with less than two bottles of Hop Hitters. I hope others may profit by my experience and.Btay at home.
