eet me, or father M though to toe who I* WM that followed her. there she stood ft the evening light, a bough of hirWthom ootn in her hand, and toy heart bent yot note wildly at the sljtht of her. Neve* J «d she seemed falret than as she stood cnttt in her whlto roiio, a look of wnaza Upon her face and In her gray eyes that Was half real, half feigned, and With the ennllght shifting on hnr auburn hair that showed beneath hor llttlo bonnet. Lily was no round checked country Maid, with lew beauties save those of health and youth, but A tall nnd shapely lady, who nod rlponed early to her full grace and sweetness, and so it came about that, though wo wore almost of tin age, yet In her presence 1 fait always as though I wore tho younger. Thus in my love for lief Was mingled some touch of reverence., " Ob, it ia you, Thomas,'' she said, blush- Ing as she spoke. "I thought you were -Hovtna mode Hie Spaniard as fast at 1 ^ . could. not—I mean that I am going homo, as it ; grows late. But, soy, why do you run go •fast, and what bas happened to you, Thomas, that your arm ia bloody and you •carry a sword in your handr" "I have no breath to speak yet," I answered. "Come back to the hawthorns, and I will tell you." "No; I must be wending homeward. I have been among tho trees for more than an hour, and there is little bloom upon them," "I could not come before, Lily. I was kept and in a strange manner; also I saw bloom as I ran." "Indeed I never thought that you would oome, Thomas," she answered, looking •down, "who have other things to do than •to go out Maying like a girl. But I wish to hear your story, if it is short, and I will walk a little way with yon." So we turned and walked side by side toward the groat pollard oaks, and by the •time that we reached them I had told her the tale of tbe Spaniard, and how ho strove to kill me, and how I had beaten him with my staff. Now, Lily listened eagerly enough and sighed with fear when she learned how close I hod been to doath. "Bnt you are wounded, Thomas!" she broke In. "See, the blood runs fast from :your arm. Is tho thrust deep?" "I have not looked to see. I have had no . time to look." "Take off your coat, Thomas, that I : may dress the wiund. Nay, I will have It so." 801 drew off the garment, not without pain, and rolled up tho shirt beneath, and there was the hurt—a clean thrust through • the fleshy finrt of the lower arm. Lily washed it with water' from tho brook and bound it with her kerchief, murmuring • words of pity all tho while. To say truth I would have suffered a worse harm glad ly if only I could find her to tend it. In ••deed her gentle care broke down the fence of my doubts and gave me a courage that otherwise might have failed me in her presence. At first indeed, I could find no words, but as she bound my wound I bent "down and kissed her ministering hand . She flushed rod as the evening sky, the flood of crimson losing itself at last beneath hor auburn hair, but itburnud deep «st upon the white hand which I hod kiss «d. "Why did you do that, Thomas'" sue •aid in a low voice. Then I spoke. "I did it because I love . you, Lily, and do not know how to begin the tolling of my love. I lovo you, dear, and have always loved, as I always shall love you." "Are you so sure of that, Thomasf" she said again. "There is nothing else in the world of which I am so SUM, Lily. What I wish to bo as sure of Is that you love mo as I love you." For a moment ahe stood quiet, her head sunk almost to her breast. Then she lift- ad it. and her eyes shone as I had never •sen them shine before. "Can you doubt It, Thomasr" sho said. And now I took hor in my arms and kissed her on the lips, and the memory of that kiss has gone with me through iny long life aud Is with me yet, when, old and withered, I stand upon tbe border* of the grave. It was the greatest joy that has been given to mo in all my days. Too soon, alasl it was done, that first pure kiss of youthful lovo, and I spoke again, soroe- wlut aimlosslyj "Ii seems, then, that you* do love mo •who love you so wellf" "If you doubted it before, can you doubt it nowf" she answered very softly. "But listen, Thomas. It Is well that we should love each other, for we wow born to U aud have no help in the matter, oven U we wished to And It. Still, though love be •vre*t and holy, It Is not all, for there Is duty to be thought of, and what will my father say to this, Thomas'" "I do not know, Lily, and yet I can guess. I am sore, sweet, that ho wishes you to toko my brother Qooffrey and leave ma on one side." "Thwi his wishes are not mine, Thomas; also, though duto us strong, It Is not •irong enough to foroo a woman to a niar- rlago for which sho bas no liking. Yet It mar prow strong enough to keep a woman (row a marriage for which hw heart pleads. Perhaps also it should havo boon strong onough to hold wo back from tho tolling . of my love," ''No, Lilvj tbo love Itself Is much, and though it should bring no fruit, still it Is •oiuothlug to liavo won U forever and a **Vou aro vary young (o talk thus, TboutiML I am also young, I fcuowi but ws women ripeu quicker.

''It Is Bothctliiflg to promise, Thotnaa, for with dins coma changed. Still 1 am so fiuro of niysolf that t proinlso—nny, 1 swear It. Of you I cannot be sure, but things tiro so with ua wotnon that we must risk nil upon a throw, and If vro loso goad- by to Impplncss." wo talked on, nnd 1 cannot re- mombcr what vro said, though these Words I hnvo written dawn remain In my mind, partly bccituso of their own weight nnd In part because of all that came about in tho nfter years. Aud nt last I know that I must go, though wo wcro and enough nt parting. So I took her in my arms nnd kissed her so closely that some blood from my Wound ran down hor whlta attire. But on we embraced I chanced to look up and saw a sight that frightened me enough, for there, not five paces from us, stood Squire Bozard, Lily's father, watching all, and his face wore no smile, Ho had been riding by a bridle path to tho watering ford, aud seeing ft couple trespassing beneath thd oaks dismounted from his horse, to hunt them away. Not till he was quite near did he know whom ho came to hunt, and then ho stood still In astonishment. He was a short, stoul man, with a red face and stern, gray eyes that Bcemod to bo starting from his head with anger. For awhile ho could nol speak, but when ho began at length tho words came fast enough. All that he said I forgot, but the upshot of it was that he desired to know what my business was With his daughter. I waited till he wits out of breath, then answered him that Lily and I lovcil each other well and wora plighting our troth. ''Is this GO, daughter?" he asked. "It is so, xoy father," she answered boldly. Then ho broke out swearing. "You light minx," ho sold, "you shall bo whip ped and kept cool on bread and water In your chamber. And tor you, my half brec Spanish cockerel, know onco and for al that this mold is for your betters. How dare you come wooing my daughter, you empty pillbox, who have not two silver pen nles to rattle iu your pouch I Go win fortune and a name before you dare to look up to such as she!" "That is my desire, and I will do it, sir," I answered. "So, you apothecary's drudge, you will win name and place, will youf Well, long before that deed is done tho malt shall be safely wedded to ono who has them and who Is not unknown to you Daughter, say now that you have finished With him." "I cannot say that, father," she replied, plucking at her robe. "If It IB no* your will that I should marry Thomas here, my duty is plain, and I may not wed him But I am my own, and no duty can make mo marry where I will not. Whilo Thomas lives I am sworn to him arid to no other man. f ' "At the least you have courage, hussy,' said her father. "But listen now. Either you will marry where and when I wisl or tramp It for your bread. Ungratefu girl, did I breed you to flaunt me to mj face' Now for you, pillbox! I will tesvol you to come kissing honest men's daugh ten without their leave,'' and with a ourse he rushed at me, stick aloft, to thrash mo Then for tbe second time that day my quick blood balled In me, and snatchinj up tho Spaniard's sword that lay upon the grass beside mo I held it at tho point, for the game was changed, and I who hoi fought with cudgel against sword mus now fight with sword against cudgel. And had It not been that Lily, with a quick cry of fear,- struck uiy ami from beneath causing the point of the sword to pass ove his shoulder, I believe truly that I should then and there have ploroed her father through and ended my days early with a noose about my neck. "Aro you uiaUf" she cried, "and do you think to win me by slaying my father Throw down that sword, Thomas." "As for winning you, it seems that there Is small chanooof It," I answered hotly, "but I tell you this—not for the sake of al tbo maids upon thu earth will I titund to he beaten with a stick like • soulllon." "And there I do not blame you, lad, said her father, more kindly. "I see that you also havo courage, which may servo you In good stead, and It was unworthy of mo to call you 'pillbox' in my anger Still, aa I have said, the girl 1s not for you, so begone and forget her aa best you may, and if you value your life never let mo find you two kissing again. And know that tomorrow I will bavo a word with your father on tbls matter." "I will go, since £ must ga,'[ I answered, "but, 'sir, I still hope to live to cull your daughter wife. Lily, farewell till those storms aro overpast." ''FarowoU, Thomas," ahosald, weeping. "Forget me not, and I will uover forgot my oath to you." Then, taking Lily by tho arm, hor father led her away. I also went away—sad, but not altogether 111 pleased, for now I knew that U I had won the father's auger I hud also won tho daughter's unalterable lovo, anil love lasts longer than wrath, and hero or hereafter will win It* way at length. Whou I hud gone a llttlo distance, I remembered tho Spaniard, who )md boon clean forgotten by me lit all thU lovo aud war, and I turned to souk him mid drug him to the itook», wliluli I should hitvu done with joy and boon glad to Iliul uomo one on whom to wreak my wrongs. Hut when I oaiuo to tho spot wlim-u 1 hart loft hint I found that tutu luul Mrluiuleil him by the hand of a fool, for thuro vtiu no Spaniard, but only tho vllliigo illicit, Hilly Minos by uuuio, who stood hturln« Hint <it tits trou to which tho forvlguor luul Iwun made fait au4 Own ut a plooo of ullvur in his band. ''When is tbo man who wiu Hod liuru. UlUyf" I askod. I kuow not, Master Thomiw," hoau- sworod iu bU Norfolk talk, which I will not sot down. "Half way to wheresoever ho was going, I should say, lueusured by tho paoo at which ho luf t when onou I had attt Itlut upon his hono.

I ovorctuiio him aud muds him fast, •Mid you havo let htui'go." ''Uo would have murdered you, waster, Mid you niudo him fiwtl Woll, bo's goue, and this alone is loft of him." And ho spun the i>iwx» Into tho air. Now, toolug Uwt Uiwrw was msou In Billy's talk, for thu fault wiw uiuiu, I turned away without moro word*, not straight homeward, for I wUhwl to think ftlouoftwbilo.ou all that luul oomo about hutwoeu uto and Lllyiuul hur father, but dowu thu way whleh ruun uorofui Uw luuo to tho prtwt uf tho Vineyard lillU.

(Uww paths runs uloug thu tottum of the hlil by tha edge of the pleasant rife* Waveney and the other a handled feet or more above and near the oreit of the slope, ot, to speak more plainly, there is but one path, shaped like the letter O, placed longitudinally, the curved ends ot the letter narking how the path turns Upon the hillside. Now, t struck the path at the end that is farthest from this house and followed that half of it which runs down by the river bank, having the water on one side of it and the brushwood Upon the other. Along this lower path t wandered, my eyes fixed upon tho ground, thinking deeply as I went, now of the joy of Lily's lovo and now of the sorrow of our parting and of hor father's wrath, and my eyes fell upon footprints In tho wet sand of the path. One of them was my mother's. I could have sworn to It among n thousand, for no other woman in these parts had so delicate B foot. Close to It, as though following after, was another that nt first I thought must also hare been made by a woman—It was so narrow. But presently I saw. that this could scarcely be, because of its length, and, moreover, that the boot which left It was like none that I knew, being out very high at the Instep and very pointed at the toe. Then of a sudden it came upon me that the Spanish stranger wore suoh boots, for I had noted them while I talked with htm, and that his feet wore following those of my mother, for they hod trodden on her track, and In some places his alone had stamped their Impress on the sand, blotting out her footprints. Here they wore mixed one with another, as though the two had stood oloee together, moving now this way and now that In struggle. I looked up the path, but there were none. Then I cast round about like a beagle, first along the river side, then up,the bank. Here they ware again, and made by feet that flew and feet that followed. ' Up the bank they went 60 yards and. more, now lost where the turf was sound, now seen in sand or loam, till they led to the bole of a big oak and were once more mixed together, for here tho pursuer had come up with the punned. Despairingly as one who dreams, for now I guessed all and grew mad with fear, I looked this way and that till at length I found more footsteps—those of the Span- lard. These were deep marked, as of a man who carried some heavy burden. I followed them. First they went down the hill toward tbe river, then turned aside to » spot where the brushwood was thick. In the deepest of the clump tho boughs, now bursting into leaf, wero bent downward as though to hide something beneath. X wrenched them aside, and there, gleam- Ing whltely In tbo gathering twilight, was the dead face of m&motherl [TO BE CONTINTJID.] j CAS5 COUNTY'S WRECKED BANK.

The oft-asked question "What became of the money?" bids fair to be answered, at least uraoh light is being thrown npon it by recent developments, and it is expected the bitter flgh between the cashier and president bring the facto to the surface.

Terrllo KxplMlon Occurred. The men marched in this order. Everything went smoothly and there were no incidents nntil tho column, marching south on Grand boulevard was jus! crossing Oakwood boulevard. Then a terrific explosion occurred. The men on ,(fce caisson, supposed to be Donovan and Doyle, were literally blown to pieces and others were^thrpw* me^ny feet by the violence or tne concussion. Four of fee bones drawing the. caisson feJl (heir tracks, shot through aud horribly mangled, whllo throe others were Mown pOfset ahead against the trees on the boulevard, dying instantly. The caisson was blown to pieces, not a piece larger than • man's hand being found. The boulevard looked like a battlefield. Then was a quick aeries of explosions after the first report and shrapnel shot rained like hail among tbe trees on the boulevard and pierced the surrounding dwellings. CoarualM of the Troops. The concussion broke every window in the houses for blocks away. The walls and roofs showed tbe terrible effects of the explosion. Tbe rear part of the caisson lay scattered over the ground. With the explosion came the confusion of the troops and for a moment the men and officers seemed powerless to move. To this was added the fright of the occupants of the surrounding bouses, who ran screaming from their dwellings, only to be frightened by the sight in the •treet. A still alarm had been turned In and with the department came the stockyards police patrol wagon. The wagon was sent back to the station and it returned with 25 men. under command of Lieutenant Morrissey. He then telephoned to Hyde Park for reinforcements and Captain Dollar arrived with 86 wore ineu. Later Assistant Inspector Fit*Patrick and Lieutenant DontMU arrived. It was seme little time before the two dead artillery men uould be found. Mangled Beyond HeooxuUlM. One of them, mangled beyond recognition, bat supposed to be Doyle, had been Mown over a board sign 85 feet high and was found in the vacant lot bo- Mud it. One log nnd an arm were gone. The other man, supposed to be Donavau, ha4 been thrown 800 feet diagonally to the right uu4 was found in a vuuaut lot near the Lake Shore tracks. Joseph Oaylor was found near where he was •truck.

The explosion occntred in the chest of the limbei and the force of the explosion Was to the rear, tearing away the caisson and igniting the powder in thn other two chests. The first caisson curried 4J shrapnel and 44 catridges. The shrapnel are loaded percussion shell, containing fulminate! and small balls and fired from the cannon by » cartridge containing as in this case 3' and % pounds of powder. My theory 'of the accident is that th« screw plug at the base of one of the shrapnel became loosened, some of the powder leaked out and being ground and pounded by the jolting of the limbei ignited the powder in the cartridges exploding them and the ignition of the cartridges in the other two chests fot lowed. Horses Rilled by Missiles, In the second chest of the caisson wen 26 time shells, 10 shrapnel and theh complement of 44 cartridges, In the third and rear chests were 42 shells and 44 cartridges. The force of the explosion can readily be understood when it is re membered that the li-!3 cartridges con tained 495 pounds of powder. The men who were in the detachment said they recognized two distinct reports, seeming ly almost simultaneous. This was the limber chest, followed almost in tho in slant by the other chest. The rattle ol explosions that followed the great deton ations was the bursting of the shrapnel as they struck the ground. The men on the caisson were lifted by the expiosiot. while the horses were killed by the missiles from the shrapnel. "I take no stock in the theory that dynamite had anything to do with it. The greatest cantion is always taken about the ammunition. Each chest is locked by a Yale lock specially made for the government. There are no keys iu any battery that will unlock any bnt the chest to which it belongs and I do not believe there is a key in Chicago thai will unlock any of onr artillery chests. The ammnmition is a couple of years old and has been jolted over the rough roads in Kansas and yet going at a light pace on the smooth streets of Chicago, the ex plosion took place."
