I go to seek fortune aa well iw foes, and I will win it for, your sake thai we may marry.'' •She shook her head sadly. "It were too much happiness, Thomas. "Men and women imay seldom wed their itnje loves, or II , they do it is but to lose them. At the least, weilove, and let us be thankful that we have learned what love can be, for having loved hero perchance at the worst we may love otherwhere wheu there are none to •ay us nay." Then we talked on awhile, babbling broken words of love anft hope and sorrow, as. young folks BO placed are wont to do, till at length Lily looked up with a sad, aweet smile and Bald: "It la time to go, sweetheart. My fa- ' thor beckons mo from tho lattice. All is finished." "Let us go then," I answered huskily «nd drew her behind the trunk of the old beech. And there I caught her in my anus •and kissed her again and yet again, nor •was she ashamed to kiss me book. After this I remember llttlo of what .happened, except that .as we rode away ] «aw her beloved face, wan and wistful, watching mo deporting out of her life. JTor 80 years that sad and beautiful face haunted me, and it haunts me yet athwart illfe and death. One thing I have forgotten. As we kiss •ed and clung in our despair behind the •bole of the great beech, Lily drew a ring from her finger and passed it into my - .band, saying, "Look on this each moraine •.when you wako and think of me." II hod been her mother's, and today it sttlj is set upon my withered hand, gleaming iln the winter sunlight as I trace these words. Through, the long years of wild •adventure, through all the time of after .peace, in love and war, in tho shine of the •cainpflro, in tho glare of the sacrificial flame, in the light of kmoly stars illumining the lonely wilderness, that ring has sbono upon my hand, reminding mo always of her who gave It, and on this hand it shall go down into tho grave. It is a plain circlet of thick gold, somewhat worn now, a posy ring, and on its inner surface is out this quaint couplet: Heart to heart, Though far apart. A fitting motto for ns indeed, and ono that has its meaning to this hour. That same dny of our farewell I rode with my father to Yarmouth. My brother Geoffrey did not como with us, but wo jiarted with kindly woids, and of this I ana glad, for wo never saw each other •gain. Mary, 'my sister, who after Lily Bozard was now tho fairest waidou in the oouutry- . aide, wept much at my going. There was but a year between us, and we loved each other dearly, for no such shadow of jealousy had fallen on our affection. I comforted hor as wull as I was able, and tolling her all that hod passed between roe and Lily I prayed hor to stand my frlond and Lily's should It ever be in her power to do so. This Mary promised to do readily enough, and though slu> did not give tho reason I could soo that she thought It possible that sho might bo able to holp ua. As I Imvo said, Lily had a brother, a '. young man of soiuo promise, who at this I time was away at college, and ho and my ' sister Mary had a strong fancy for each . other that might or might not ripen into something donor. 80 wo klseud and bade farewell with tours. And after that my father and I rodo •way. But when wo had putwod down Plrnhowstrout and mounted tho llttlo hill beyond Waiugford Ml Iln to tho loft of Dim- pay town I halted my horse ami looked wok upon tho pleasant valloy of tbo Wav- enoy, whom I won burn, and my heart grow full to bursting. Had I known all that must bofall uio boforo my eyes beheld that •cone again, I think iudood that it would bavo burst. But God, who in his wisdom ban laid many a burden upon tho baoku of wen. has saved them this, for had we forelnowlodgo of the future I think that, of our awn will, but tow of us would llvo to too It. Bo I oast ono long last look toward tbo distant mass of oaks that marked the spot whero Lily lived and roda on. On the following day I embarked on board Uio Alvvutuivat, and w* sailed. Before I luft, my father'* heart softened muoh toward we, (or ho wtuoiubsred that I was my mother's bout Iwioved and feared also lest we nhould moot iw more. Of my voyage to Cadiz, to which port I bad learned that Do Garcia'*, ship wa» bound, there is little to be told.

Many travelers Uuve told of tho glories ol Seville, to which auolonl Moorish ully I journeyed with all spew). Foreseeing that It wight be nooesaury for mo to stop some Tit .Seville, and. being, deslrou.* to e»- cape notice and to bent the gwalkat,et- pense possible, 1 bethought me that It would bo well If 1 could flndtneftflsof con- i tinning my studios of medfatae, and to this end I obtained certain Introductions • from the firm of merchants *o whose care t had been recommended addressed to doctors of medicine In Seville. These letters at my request were inado out not In my own name, but in that of Diego d'Alia, for t did not wish It to bo known that I was M Englishman. Nor Indeed was this likely, except my speech should betray me, for, ts» I have said, In appearance I wafl very Spanish, and the hindrance of tho language was ono that lessened every day, rtnoo having already learned it from my mother, and taking every opportunity to read and speak It, within six months I could talk Castillan, except for some slight accent, like a native of the land; also I have a gift for the acquiring of languages. When I was come to Seville and had placed my baggage in an inn, not one of the most frequented, I set out to deliver a letter of recommendation to a famous physician of the town whoso name I have long forgotten. This physician had a fine house in the street of Loa Palmns, a great avenue, planted with graceful trees, that baa other little streets running Into It. Down one of these I came from my inn, a quiet, narrow place having houses with patios, or courtyards, on either side of It. As I walked down this street I noticed a man sitting in the shade on a stool In tho doorway of his patio. Ho was small and withered, with keen black eyes and a wonderful air of wisdom, and he watched me as I went by. Now, the house of the famous physician Whom I sought was so placed that tho man sitting at this doorway oould command it with his eyes and take note of all who went In and come out. When I hod found the house, I returned again .Into the quiet street and walked to and fro there for awhile, thinking of what tale I should tell to the physician, and all the time tho little man watched me with his keen eyes. At last I had made up my story and went to tho house, only to find that the physician was from home. Having inquired when I might find him, I left and once more took to the narrow street, walking slowly till I came to where the little man sat. As I passed him his broad hat, with which he was fanning himself, slipped to the ground before .my feet I stooped down, lifted it from <the pavement and restored It to him. "A thousand thanks, young sir," be said in a full and gentle voice. "You arc courteous for a foreigner." "How do yon know me to bo a foreigner, eenorf" I asked, surprised out of my caution. "If I had not guessed It before, I should know it now," ihe answered, smiling gravely. "Your Castillan tolls its own tale." I bowed and was about to pass on when bo addressed mo again. "What is your hurry, young sir? Step in and take a ouy>of wine with mo. It is good." ' I was about to say him nay when it came into my mind that I had nothing to do, and that perhaps I might learn something from his gossip. "Tho day is hot, senor, and I accept." He spoke no more, but rising led me into a courtyard paved with marble, in tho center of which was a basin of water, hiw- ing vines trained around it. Here were ohalra and a little table placed in tho shade of tbo vines. When he bad closed tho door of tho patio and we were seated, ho rang a silver bell that stood upon the table, and a girl, young and fair, appeared from tho house, dressed in a quaint Spanish dross. "Bring wine," said my host. The wine was brought—white wine of Oporto such aa I had never tasted before. "Your health, senor." And my host stopped, his glass in hand, and looked at mo inquiringly. "Diego d'Alla," I answered. "Humph," ho said. "A Spanish name, or perhaps on imitation Spanish name, for I do not know it, and I have a good hood for names." "That is my name, to take or to leave, senor," and I looked at him In turn. "Andres de JTonseca," he replied, bow- Ing, "a phyalola»<of this city, well known enough, especially among tho fair. Well, Bonor Diego, I take your name, for names are nothing, and at times It Is convenient to change them, which Is nobody's business exdepf their owners'. I s see that yon are a stranger In this city—no need to look surprised, senor. One who is familiar with a town does not -gaze and stare and ask the path of passersby, nor docs a native of Seville walk on the sunny side of the street In summer. And now, if you will not think me Impertinent, I will ask you what can be the business of so healthy a young man with my rival yonderf" And he nodded toward the bouse of tho famous physician. "A man's business, like his name, Is his own affair, sonor," I answered, sotting my host down in my mind as one of those who disgrace our art by plying openly for patients that they may capture their foes, "Still I will toll you. I am also a physician, though not yet fully qualified, and I seek a place whero I may help some doctor of roputo In Ills dally ;, rootles, tod. thus "Your h«olM», wnor." galifejperlonou uiid my"living with It." "Ah, U It tot Well, iwnor, then you will look In vain yonder," and again ho nodded toward the physician's house. "Such as bo will take no apprentice without tho foe be large Indeed. It Is not ta* custom of UiUolty." ••Then I must seek a livelihood else- whore or otherwise." "I did jiot say no. Now, tenor, let us wo what you know of inudlulue, and, what U more important, of humun nature, fur of tbo (|rst none of us can over know niuoh, but ho who known tho latter will bea leader of men—or of wonuva—who lead tho num." And without more tula ho put mo many o,ue«Uous, e»oh o( them so shrewd and going no directly to the heart of the mat- Sir In hmul that I uiwvulod at his sagacity. Sumo of these uuiwtloiu wore medical, dMllng ekldlly with the ailments of worn- an; others were general and dealt more with Uwlr oharaotetv. At Ivugtb he fln- lahed. "You will do, »«*," he «ald. "You are a young mah of parts and promise, though, its was to bs expected from one of your years, you lack experience. There Is stuff In you, saner, ami you have a heart, Which 1* n good thing, for the blunders of a man with a heart often Carry him farther than the cuntolug of the cynic; also you have a wHl and know how to direct It." t bowed and did my best to hold bock my satisfaction at his words from showing in tny fnce. "Still," he went on, "all this would not cause mo to submit to you the offer that I am about to make, for many a prettier fellow than yourself is, after all, unlucky, or a fool at the bottom, or bad tempered and destined to fflie dogs, as for aught I know you may be also. But I take mjr chance of that because you suit we In another way. Perhaps you may scarcely know it yourself, but you have beauty, senor, beauty of a very rare and singular type, which half the ladles of Seville will praise when they come to know you." "I *m much flattered," I said, "but might I ask what nil these compliments may mean? To bo brief, what is your offer?" ' • "To b* brief, then, it is this: I am in need of an assistant who must possess all the •qualities that I see In you, but most of all ono which I can only gueis you to possess—discretion. That assistant would not be ill paid. This house would be at his disposal, and he would have opportunities of learning the world such as are given to few. What say you?" "I say this, senor, that I should wish to know more of the business in which I am expected to assist. Your offers sound too 'liberal, and I fear that I must earn your 'bounty by tho doing of work that honest men might shrink from." ''A fair argument, but, as it happens, not quite n correct one. Listen. You have 'been told that yonder physician, to whose 'bouse you went but now, and these"— here he repeated four or five names—"are the greatest of their tribe in Seville. It is not so. I am the greatest and th6 richest, and I do more business than any two of them. Do you know what my earnings have been this day alone? I will toll you— just over 95 gold pesos (about £68) more than all the rest of the profession have taken together, I will wager. You want to know how I earn BO much; you want to know also why, if I have earned so much, 1 am not content to rest from my labors. Good; I will tell you. I earn it by ministering to the vanities of women and sheltering them from toe results of their own folly. Has a lady a sore heart, sho comes to me for comfort and advice. Has she pimples on her face, she flies to me to cure them. Has she a secret love affair, it is I who'hide her indiscretion. I consult tho future for her, I help her to .atone the past, I doctor her for imaginary ailments, and often enough I cure her of leal ones. Half tbo secrets of Seville are in niy hands. Did I choose to speak I could set a score of noble houses to broil and bloodshed. But I do not speak. I am paid to keep silent, and when I am not paid still I keep silent for my credit's sake. Hundreds of women think mo their savior; I know them for my dupes. But, mark you, I do not push this game too far. A love philter —of colored water—I may give at a price, but not a poisoned rose. Those they must seek elsewhere. For the rest, in my way I am honest. I take the world as it comes, that is all, and as women will be fools I profit by their folly and have grown rich upon It. "Yes, I have grown rich, and yet I cannot stop. I love the money that is power, but moro than all I love tho way of life. Talk of romances and adventure I What romance or adventure is half so wonderful as those that coino dally to my notice? And I play a part In every one of them, and none the less a leading part because I do not shout and strut upon tho boards." "If all this is so, why do you seek tbo help of an unknown lad, a stranger of whom you know nothing?" I asked bluntly. "Truly, you lack experience," tho old man answered, with a laugh. "Do you, then, suppose that I should choose one who was not a stranger—ono who might have ties within this city with which I was unacquainted? And as for knowing nothing of you, young man, do yon think that I have followed this strange trade of .mine for 40 years without learning to judge at sight? Perhaps I know you better than you know yourself. By tho way, .tho fact that you are > deeplyj>nampre$ of that maid whom you have left In England la a recommendation to mo, for whatever follies you may commit you will scarcely .embarrass mo and yourself by suffering your affections to bo seriously entangled. Ah, have I astonished you?" "How do you know?". I began, then .oeasod. '•How do I know? Why, easily enough. Those boots you wear wore mode In England. I have soon many such when I traveled there. Your accent also, though faint, is Kngllsh, and twice you have spoken English words when your Castlllan fulled you. Then for tho maid, is not that a betrothal ring upon your hand? And when I spoke to you of the lading of this country iny talk did not Interest you overmuch, as at your ago it hod done were you heart whole, Surely also tho lady is fair and tall? Ah, I thought sol I have noticed that men and women love their opposite In color, no Invariable rule indued, but good for a guess." "You are very clover, sonor." "No, not clover, but trained, as you will be when you have, boon a year In my hands, though perchance you do not Intend to stop so long In Seville. Perhaps you came hora with au object and wish to pass thu time profitably till It 1s fulfilled. A good guess again, I think. Wull, so be It. Twill risk that—object and attaltnuunt itro often fur apart. I)o you taku my offer?" "I Incllnu to do so," "Tiiim you will take it. Now I have something moru to say boforo we come to terms. I do not want you to play tbo part of an apothecary *H drudge. You will figure before thu world tut my nuphow, oome front ubruutl to luarn my trade. YQU wlU help mo la it luduud, but that U not all your duty. Your part will bo to mix In tho life of Seville and to wutoli those whom I bid you watch, to drop a word Itero and a hint thuru, and In a hundnxl ways that I shall show you to draw grlwt to iny mill—and to your own. You must bo brilliant and wltly or sad and learuvd. as i wixli; you must make tli« most of your person and your talents, for these go fur with my customers. To tho hidalgo you inusji talk of arms, to tho lady of love, but you must never commit yourself bo- jrond radumptiou. And, above all, young ii)ttu"-r*nd hero h> ummiur changed, and his face grow itorn uml almost flerve— "you inuttt never vloltUo my ooufldoneo or thu oouddonoouf luyoliouto. On U»U point I will be quite open with you, and I pray you for your own sake to believe what I §t»y, however much you may mistrust the runt. If you break Mth wlttt me, you die; you die, not by my band, but you die. That Is uiy price; take it or leave 16. Should you leave It and go heitoe and tell what you havu hoard thu day, oveji misfortune tnny overtake you suddenly. Do you understand?" "I understand. For my own sake 1 will tespect yout confidence." '•Young sir, 111 ko you better than ever. Had you sold that you would respect It be- onnse It wan a confidence, I should hate mistrusted you, for doubtless you feel that secrets communicated so readily have no claim to bo held sacred. Nor have they, but when their violation involves the sad and accidental end of tho violator it is another matter.' Well, now, do you accept?" "I accept." / "Good. Your baggage, I suppose, Is at tho inn. I will send porters to discharge your score and bring It here. No need for you to go, nephew. Let us stop an4 drink another glass of wine. Tho sooner we grow intimate the better, nephew." It waa thus that I first became acquainted with Senor Andres de Fonseca, my benefactor, the strangest man I have ever known. Doubtless any person reading this history would think that I, the narrator, was sowing a plentiful crop of troubles for myself In having to deal with him, setting him down as a rogue of the deepest, Such as sometimes for their own wicked purposes decoy young men to crime and ruin. But it was not so, and this is the strangest part of the strange story. All that Andres de Fonseca told me was true to the very letter. He was a gentleman of great talent who had been rendered a little mad by misfortunes In his early life. As a physician I have never met his master, if indeed he has one to those times, and as a man versed In the world and more especially In the world of women I hav<e known none to compare with him. He had traveled far and seen much, and he forgot nothing. In part he was a quack, but his quackery always had a meaning in it. Ho fleeced the foolish indeed and even juggled with astronomy, making money out of their superstition, but on the other hand he did many a good act without reward. Ho would make a rich lady pay 10 gold pesos for the dyeing of her hair, but often he would nurse some poor girl through her trouble and ask no charge—yes, and find her honest employment after It. He who knew all the secrets of Seville never made money out of them by threat of exposure, as be said because it would not pay to do so, but really because, though he affected to be a selfish knave, at bottom his heart was honest. For my own part, I found life with bun both easy and ha{vy, so far as mine could be quite happy. Soon I learned my role and played it well. It was given out that I was the nephew of the rich old physician Fonseca, whom be was training to take his place, and this, together with my own appearance and manners, Insured mo a welcome In the best houses of Seville. Hero I took that share of our business which our master could not take, for now he never mixed among the fashion of the city. Money I was supplied with in abundance, so Chat I could ruffle it with tho bent, but soon it became known that I looked to business as well as to pleasure. Often and often during some gay ball or carnival a lady would glide up to me and ask beneath her breath If Don Andres de Fonseoa would consent to see her privately on a matter of some Importance, and I would fix an hour then and there. Had It not boon for mo, such patients would have been lost to us, since, for the most part, their timidity had kept them away. In tho some fashion when the festival was ended, and I prepared to wend homeward, now and again a gallant would slip his arm in mine and ask my master's help In some affair of love or honor or even of tho purse. Then I would Uv,;l him straight to the old Moorish house whero Don Andres sat writing In his velvet robe like some spider in his web, for tho most of our business was done at night, and straightway tho matter would be attended to, to my master's profit and the satisfaction of all. By degrees It became known that, though I was so young, yet I bod discretion, and that nothing which went In at my cars came out of my lips; that I neither brawled nor drank nor gambled to any length, and that, though I was friendly with many fair ladles, there were none who were entitled to know my secrets; also it became known that I hod some skill In my art of healing, and It was said among the ladles of Seville that them IhMxl no man in that city so deft at clearing tho skin of blemishes or changing the color of tho hair as old Fonseca's nephew, and as any one may know this reputation alone was worth a fortune. Thus It onmo about that I was more and moro consulted on my own account. In short, things went so well with us that In tho Unit six months of my practice I added by one-third to tho receipts of my mas- tor's practice, largo as they Jiad been before, besides lightening his labors not a llttlo. It was a strange life, and of the things that I saw and learned, could they be written, I might make a tale Indeed, but they have no part in this history, for it was as though the smiles and silence with which men and women hide their thoughts woro done awuy, and their hearts spoke to us in tho accents of truth. Now some fair young maid or wife would oome to us with confessions of wickedness that would be thought Impossible did not her story prove Itself—tho secret murder perchance of n spouse or a lover, or a rival; now tome aged damo who would win a husband In his teens; now some wealthy low horn man or woman who dcslrod to buy an alliance with 0110 lacking money, but of no- bio blood. Suuh I did not cam to holp Indued, but to the lovonlok or thu lovo ilo- ludod I Ustanuil with a ready oar, for I had a follow feeling with them. Indeed so (loop and oarniMt wua my nyiupnthy that more tlian unu) I found tho unhappy ful» ready to trunufor thoir lUTootlons to my unworthy sulf, uud In fact onoo things eumo about w that, iuui I wlllud it, I could havo married unu of the loveliest and wwiHIjIiwt noble Imllwd of Seville.

ROW AMONG OFFICIALS. Kansas Penitentiary Investigation Ends In a Fight. THEY CALL EAOH OTHEE LIARS, W«td«n Chime Grubbed Judge McDonnel Mttd Struck Him Nine Vlctotlp Blow?—The (fudge Will Proiccute Chase For AMaiilt With Intent to Kill, Also Sue Him for Damages—I'roieoutlon Closed. TOPEKA, July «4.—A dispatch to The Capital from Lansing says: The investigation of charges against Populist officials of the Kansas penitentiary Monday was a mere farce, though it came near ending in a tragedy. When the penitentiary board opened the investigation, Judge McDonnel, for the complainants, asked for' a continuance. While the board was deliberating on this point, Warden Chase appeared in Judge Me- Donnel's room and they ended a brisk conversation by calling each other liars. At this Chase grabbed McDonnel by the collar and struck him nine vicious blows on the back of the head. Friends rushed In to separate the combatants when a general mixup occurred and knives and pistols were drawn. The guards and employes friendly to Chase were very ugly and after the as- sanlt on Judge McDonnel, Chase's opponents were terrorized and refused absolutely to have anything to do with the investigation. In the afternoon the board waited two hours for the ptosecu tion to appear and on Dr. English com ing forward and swearing that Judge McDonnel was seriously hurt and could not leave his bed, the prosecution was declared closed, without a word of testimony in and the defense was called. Six witnesses testified for Chase and they made a good showing against the charges. Judge McDonnel stated that he intends to prosecute Warden Chas« on the charge of assault with intent to* kill and also to sue him for damages. The jndge is 02 years old. CHARGES AGAINST MACKEY. Offlcer In Charge ot Federal Troop* at South Kulil In Trouble. WICHITA, Kan., July 24.—J. C. Moore, mayor of South Enid, O. T., the scene of tbo disturbances between the citizens and the Rock Island railway, has pro pared and forwarded to the secretary ol war charges and specifications, under the articles of war, against Captain Mackuy, who is in command of the federal troops in that city. The specifications allege that at the dead hour of night Captian Mackey and his men went to the home of Charles L. Sheerer, took him out ol bed and, showing him a rope, threatened to hang him if he would not divulge the names of the party who fired at a cor poral in Maekey's command in a recent row. He also alleges Captain Mackey and his men dragged A. R. Elliott, an other citizen, out of bed, presented tbeii rifles to his breast and threatened to kill him if he would not divnlRe the Identity of partie.s implicated in burning bridges. They kept him under torture until Mrs Elliott, \vlio ran through tho streets in her night clothes, awakened the citizens by her sen-inns. Mayor Moore has notified the secretary by telegraph that tha charges ugainst Captain Mackey are en route. Complication* ut liluefleldl. NEW YORK, July 24.—The Herald'a Managua dispatch says: General Lacayo, ex-commissioner of the Mosquito Territory, was asked to give his views upon the troubles with the Indians there. Ho is opposed to President Zelaya's treatment of the rebels and to whal he calls Minister Cabaza's high banded policy. He speaks well of the Mosquito forces and Indorses United States Minister Baker's advice to act with moderation.
