CHAPTER L / If there tw aught in presentiments, I was woll warned by that first glimpse of the iun. Tho monstrous bulk of gables, sloping roofs and lean chimneys hnnched blacklr against tho sky would have soared a bwidor spirit than mine. All day I had walked under bine sky, betweon green kedf ,wws, with light heart and whistling lip. Confronted in the twilight by so sinister a scene, I felt qualmish. Ragged clouds dropped their fringes over sullon western rod, around Spread the salt marshes, evil in their desolation, and I, with chilled blood, •tared at the lonely mansion dominating the outlook. Here, thought I, an adventure awaits ma The hour, the house, the scene, hint at romance, and that of the strangest. So much were my spirits dashed by tbese ominous environments that it was in my mind to walk the farther 10 miles and shelter for the night at Uarshminster. Yet some fate compelled 107 unwilling feet toward that inhospitable door, and almost before I kuew my own mind I was knocking loudly. It opened while my hand was still raised for the final rap, and a handsome woman presented herself to my astonished eyes. What beauty did among t lie tombs I know not, yet there she cmiled. Thongh handsome, she was Hot a lady and lacked the nndoflnable stamp of birth. At the same time she wns above the commonality. Not a lady, not a servant, but something between the two. Her appearance confirmed the promise of .romance. "I have walked from Eastbnry, " said I, cap in hand, "and wish to put up here for the night " "Marshminster is only 10 miles away," nnswered she, in no/wise disposed to admit me. "And for that reason I want abed here. Twenty and more milea walking mder a hot sun has wearied me considerably." "I am sorry we cannot accommodate yon, sir. " "This is an inn, " I said, glancing at the sign. "The Fen inn, sir, " she replied, still smiling, "and fall of guests for the time being." "Full of guests in this locality I Yon must then entertain waterfowl, for I have seen no human being for the last 1> milos. " She made no direct answer, but shook her head and prepared to oloso tfce door. Piqued by the discourtesy and still more by the mystery of this reception, I was about to insist upon admission when my attention was attracted to a face at the near window. I recognized it as that of a college friend and waved my stick in greeting. "Hollo, Briarfieldl" I shouted lustily. "Gome and help me to a night's lodgings." The girl was surprised by my remark, and, as I thought, changed color. She •topped aside to let Brlarflold pass aud exhibited further Htonishent at the urbanity of our greeting. "What wind blow* you .here, Den- bam?" asked Briarfleld, shaking my hand. "I am on a walking tour, "I answered, "and hoped to have reached Marshininster tonight, but as it is 10 miles away and I feel weary I wish to sloop hero. This young lady, however, •ays the inn is full of guests and"— "Full of guests!" interrupted Briar- fleld, looking at the girl "Nonsense, Bone. I am the only guest here I" "We expect others, sir, " said Bow obstinately. "You can't expect a sufficient number to fill tho house," he retorted, "Surely Mr. Douhain oau have a bedr" "I alkali oak my father, sir!" When she disappeared, Briarfiold turned to me with a smile and asked a straugo question. "Now, I'll be bound," said he, "that you don't know my first iiamol" "Felix." "No I You arc wrong. I am not the rich Fulix, but the poor Francis. " "You soo tho result of being one of twins, " suid I impatiently. "If at college I could not distinguish botwuuu you, how can you oxpwt mo to do so now? I haven't BCCH either you or your brother for uc letut two yours. Whore in Felix?" "At Marshmiastor. " "Aud wliut ur« you doing horo?" "Ah, that's n, loiig story I If you"— — "Please to wnlk In, sir, " interrupted Rose at this momout. "My father do- •ires to ijxwk with you. " "I huvo, Utou, to submit utyiolf to tho approval of tho liwdlord, " mud I and forthwith euUirod tho houao, followed by Francis Driwllold.

Despltte the cheerful blaze of a fire, the room had a mildewed look, M though longtaninhnbitcl Traces of hasty cleansing \«rfd.visible hi all comers, and in the dim light filtered through dusty panes the apartment had a singularly uninviting aspect Again that premonition of misfortune came over me. "I wonder you took nfttio house at all,"said L "Yonwon 1 * make your fortune in this locality." The landlord made no reply, but muttering something about supper left the room. His daughter had already deported, presumably in the direction of the kitchen, aud I found myself alone with Francis Briarfleld. He w*» absently looking out at the window and started when I addressed him directly. I augured mystery therefrom, "What's the meaning of ftiese mysteries?" I asked abruptly. The horror of the place was already influencing my spirits. ! " "What mysteries?" demanM Briarfield in a listless manner. "This inn has been uninhabited for some considerable period. A suspicions looking rascal and his yNotjr daughter have taken up their abode here with no possible chance of getting customers. I •tumble on this castle grim in the twilight and find yon here—y**fll all own —whom I believed to be in Moth Amer : lea. Don't yon call these nwsteries? "If you put it that wax, 1 admit UM mysteries, replied Frauai% Miming toward the fire. "I know llftte about tb* inn, still less about the luuJJMd and his daughter. As to myself, I-ejm here by appointment to meet my brother Felix. Came from London to Start*? and rod* from thence to this inn." "Why meet him in this ararderoM looking house?' "He named the place at meeting himself." "And you?" "I only arrived this month in fing land from South America. litootehtt from London, asking to see him. He appointed this inn as neutral ground for us to meet, so here I am." "Why neutral ground? Have yon quarreled?" "Bitterly." "Yon did so at college," said I, looking steadily at him. ' 'Strange that such ill blood should exist betomn twfaa brothers." "The inevitable woman, "said Fran oia in a harsh tone, quite Wtfcrianee with his usual soft speech. "Ob! And her name?" "Olivia Bellini" "I know her. Do yon mnan to say, Briarfield, that" '.'Hush I" ho said, rapidly indicating the door, and there stood the girl Rose listening to our conversation. Her face was pale, and it waa evident that the mention of the name had powerfully affected her. Seeing our eyw were on her, she apologized in a low, nervous voice. "Your pardon, gentleman."jfce said, placing a tray on the table. "I did not intend to interrupt your oonvwation. Allow me to lay the table for sapper." "First show me my room, "said I, picking up my knapsack. "I am dusty and wish to give myself a brush up." Bow nodded and preceded nw -out of the apartment. I glanced back and saw that Francis had returned to as* old post by the window. Evidently he was watching for the arrival of bin brother. "When does Mr. Felix Briarflold arrive?" I asked Rose as we ascended the stain. "I don't know the name, sir,"she •aid, with an obviou effort "You don't know the name?" I repeated, seeing she was lying, "yet Mr. Francis Briarfiold is hen to meet hi* brother." "It may be so, sir. But I know nothing about it Mr. Briarfleld is a stranger to mo, like yourself." "It is to be hoped you received him more willingly than you did ma " My words foil on tho empty air, for after her lust remark *lu> havflk/ departed. I mechanically attended to my wants and wondered what could bo the moaning of tho girl's attitude. "8ho knows MUs Bolliu and Felix Brlorllold," I thought, "perhaps not ponsonally, but at leant their nwues. She is also awiiro of tho intended visit of Fulix to this place. I must find out from Fruuois tho roosou of that visit, wul it may throw some light on tho do- uioauor of BUBO. I aiu glad I oamo hero tonight, for thut landlord fe warooly a porcou to bu trusted. Certainly my pro- toutiiuout of romance i» oowiiig true." Whuu I doaooudod to the dlaiug room, I found supper laid and fraud* iuipa- tioutly awaiting my arrival A lamp wiu lighted, and for the Ant Mmo I saw hiu faoo plainly.

"We are alike to outward view, Denham, but I hope our natures are different." "What do yon mean?" "Felix," said he, with marked deliberation, "is « thief, a liar and a dishonorable man." " You speak (strongly." "Ihave reason to." "The before mentioned reason, Briar- fleld," said If. alluding to the feminine element '' Yos. By the way," he added feverishly, ."yon said Miss Bellin was known to you." "In a casual way only. She is a society beauty, and I have met her once or twice; also her very silly mother. The latter is as remarkable for folly as the former is for beauty. Well, Briarfield, and what about Miss Bellin?" "I was engaged to her." "You are engaged to her?" "I said 'was,' " he replied, with emphasis. "Now she is .engaged to my brother." ' "Of her own free will?" "I don't know," said Briarfleld. "I really don't know. When I went to Chile, I was her affianced lover. Now I return and learn that she is to marry my brother." "What explanation does he make?" "None as yet Tonight or tomorrow morning he comes here to explain." "But why here, of all places?" "Miss Bellin is in Marshminster. Felix is staying there also, and in his letter asked me to see him at the Fen inn, as he wished to explain his conduct fully before I met Olive again." "And you agreed?" "As yon see." "In your place," said I meditatively, "I should have gone at once to Marsh- minster and confronted both. "There is some trickery about this." . "You think so?" "I am by nature euepicioue," I answered. "Perhaps too much so. Yes, 1 think there is some trickery." Francis frowned and glanced at his watch, "It is now 8 o'clock," he said, replacing it in hie pocket; "too late to go to Marshminster." "Besides which," I added, "our worthy landlord has doubtless neither trap nor horse." By this time we had finished supper, and ROM came in to clear away. Thoughtfully filling my pipe, I watched her closely. Undeniably she was a very beautiful woman and ill suited to her present occupation. Why a girl so handsome shoatt.bufy herself in this tamely inn was a mystery tome. I felt sure that there was a purpose connected with her presence here, and that inimical to Briarfield. The landlord did not make his appearance, which was to me a matter of some relief. ' I disliked the fellow greatly. Francis, smoking hard, sat staring at the fire aud took no heed of Rose. Onco or twice she glanced in his direction and looked as though about' to address him. Catching my eye, afce bit her lip and desisted. Finally she disappeared from the room, with manifest auger at not having accomplished her design. "Strange," said I, lighting my pipa "What is strange?" asked Briarfield, looking up. "That girl knows your brother." "It's not impossible," he answered carelessly. "Felix always had an eye for pretty faces, aud as he appointed this inn as a meeting place he hoe probably beau here before. Rose Strent no doubt draw* him hither by her beauty." "That i» not a compliment to Mia* Bellui" "I know it Felix is a profligate •camp and will make her a bad husband. He shall not marry her," added Briarfleld angrily. "I say he shall not marry her and make her life miserable. I'll kill him first" "Man, man, think of what yon are saying—your own brother I" "My own brother—my twin brother, " scoffed Francis, "Is that any reason why ho should take away from me the woman I love?" "She is not worth regretting if she forgeto you to soon." "She has not forgotten me, "he said earnestly. "I aasure you, Donham, she love* me stHL The last letter I received "J toy ** *' 1 "" lot murrv her und moJM her "(ft mlwrablo. I'lllui him M»t." from her gave wo hint that she wearied of me.

"Now, I wonder if this apparent treachery of Miss Bellin has anything to do with your twinship?" "What do yon moan?" asked Briar- fleld, starting up. "fou are so like in appearance," said I, "that no one could tell you apart You have lived constantly together save for the lost six mouths and know every action of each other's lives. It may be that Felix has passed himself off to Mist Bellin as you." "Impossible! She would detect the deception." "I doubt it, save by intuition. I assure you, Briarfield, that the resemblance between you is most perplexing. There is not the slightest difference. Yon dress the same; yon have the same gestures; yon almost think the some. It is scarce possible to tell which is which when apart I thought tonight that yon were Felix" "It cannot be; it cannot be," he muttered feverishly. ' 'Her own heart would tell her the truth." "Did you tell Felix of your engagement?" I asked abruptly. "Yes. I told him all" "And when did yon hear last from Miss Bellin?" "Some three months ago. It was because she did not reply to my letters that I came back so soon." "To whom were your letters sent?" "To her, of course." "Care of Felix?" said I, with instinctive suspicion. "Why, yes," he said, with a sudden frown. "I did not want Mrs. Bellin to know of our engagement, so did not dare to write openly. Felix undertook to deliver the letters,". "He may have undertaken to do so, but," I added forcibly, "he did not" "DenhamI" "The whole case is as clear as day," •aid 1 "Felix was fc love with Miss Bellin and wished to marry her. Knowing she was in love with yon, ho was well aware he had no chance, ao resorted to trickery. When yon left for Chile, he gave her your letters for three months, then, saying he was going abroad, ostensibly left England, but really staid and presented himself as yon." "As me?" " Yes. He has traded, on the marvelous resemblance between yon. He knows all your life, all your love affairs, and I have no doubt that Miss Bellin believes that he is Francis Briarfield, her lover, returned from South America in three months instead of six" "If I thought so," muttered Francis, biting his fingers, "if I thought so" "I am sure it is so. Now yon see why it is imperative that he should interview yon before yon meet Miss Bollin. He wishes to reveal the deception and throw himself on your mercy." "He'll get no mercy from me if this is so," said Briarfield in a somber tone. "Oh, fool that I was not to write direct to Olivia when I came back to England! But it is aot too late. When he comes here, I'll learn the truth add denounce him to Olivia. Then our troubles will be over." "A man capable of such a trick is capable of worse," said I sententiowly. "I advise yon to be on your guard against Felix." "Do yon think he'll kill me?" "I don't go as far as that," I replied cautiously, "but your meeting will be— productive of trouble. Just now yon expressed a wish to kill him." "Aud I shall if he has tricked me as yon say." "Nonsense, Briarfield, yon talk wild ly. This matter can surely be settled in a less melodramatic fashion. I am glad I am here, as porhapa you will permit no to ho present at the interview." "Willingly. I know how clever yon arc, Donham. Yon may assist me to unmask Felix." "Do you think he'll oome tonight?" •aid I, going to tho window. "His letter said tonight or tomorrow." "Thou it will be tomorrow. Felix wouldn't risk meeting yon at night if he had thus betrayed yoa Let us go to bed and tomorrow settle the matter," At first Francis was unwilling to retire, but when the landlord came to look up for the night and laughed at the idea of any one coming there from Marshuiiiuttcr ho fell iu with my desire. Together we went up stain and parted on the threshold of his room. It waa five or six doom away from utiuo. "Look your door," said I as wo parted. "What, do you think I'll bomurdowd iu my sleep?" "No, but I don't like the iuu, and 1 disliko the faoo of Strout, the landlord. BosidoH,"I continued, tapping Briarfield's breast, "that girl Roue." "What about hor?" "Sho known Miss Bolliu.

W^.._t ed Professor David Swing before his death was on the labor question. A perusal of the. sermon shows that the famous liberal preacher had taken to heart very seriously the action of the American Railway union at the time of the Chicago strike last summer. He soya labor is as great an enemy to labor as it is to capital. He blames the strikers throughout for the unfortunate features of the affair. Labor's resort to violence he deals with as follows: Labor may and even moat orgonlfe, but the laborers must organize M Just and few abiding men, country loving men, and not M bandits. Tho depressing memory of lost July la not to be found in the fact that labor was organized or wholly in tho fact that it "struck." fho itriko was indeed perfectly destitute of common TOURO, but the c^lef dtagrace of the hour lay in tho willingness of freemen to obey a ventral despot and join in such acts of wrong and violence as would have disgraced savages. Benevolence is humiliated that It mast feed and clothe men who will break the skull or kick to insensibility the brother who wishes to earn bread for. bis hungry fnmily. It was discovered last July that tome of the labor unions employ fighting men to go to and fro to hunt up and knock down thoso who do not join in the folly— thorn} who are satisfied with their wages or who must work. Not every workman is a trained pugilist. So men are hired to spend the day or the week in pounding men who are 'noble and industrious. Seldom in the course of his career did anything rouse up -David Swing to speak like that. He Bays labor will ruin its cause by trusting tothelea«]gr8hipol hot headed, ignorant, illogical men: Labor should have for ita chieftains our Franklins or our John Stuart Mills. These should b« iU guide. If our Und poesestee no euch minds, then we are on tha eve of untold misfortune. When lapor shall have Franklins for its walking delegates, it will enter upon a new career. Capital will confer with It. Con- greMei of. workingmen will ne«t,andmdn will find the wagu of each toller and of each new period, but nothing can be done by a fool- iah despot with a club. Yei, something con ha done— the republic can be hopelessly rained through a ruined manhood. It is the resort to trntal violence that the preacher condemns with all the force of his eloquence. Q'on and club logic have had no part in the real betterment in wage and conditions that labor has made in the past 95 yean. The improvement has been wrought by moral power, and by that alone, by "conference, thought and reason. " There is a mighty task before the church today, he thinks. Let tho church throw aside its hairsplitting discussions over dogma and creed and address itself tp the making of Christ- like character in the multitude. This is the stupendous work before theolqgy and science today. It is a greater crusade than ever Peter the Hermit or Martin Luther entered on. Preacher and scientist must meet mob and millionaire on their own ground and develop them into spiritual life— the lif e of Justice, honesty and brotherhood. Nothing else can sat* the world. A realization of the worth of man as a spiritual being "can compel a great nation 'and a great manhood to spring from the philosophy df tfco somL " One is frequently lost in admiration of the acumen of detective agencies. It has .been published broadcast over the land that frnardi have been placed all about the spot where the great train robbery occurred 'in California, in tha belief that 960,000 in gold and several thousand dollars iu silver are buried in the earth thereabout* and that the robbers will soon oome back to carry the booty off. When the bold highwaymen read this in the newspapers, of course they will all rush at once to tho spot where they have buried the treasure and dig it up in plain sight of the detective* _ _ There is nothing like being an architect and knowing about high art in building as well as art in high building. Mr. Thomas Baitings, a Now York city architect, wants ikyaoraping houses limited by law for a reason that sounds very queer to the nnartiatio soul He •ays, "Legal limitations on tho height of buildings would give us that monotony so essential to tha general appearance of a city." Nobody but a New York architect «ouU havo evolved that idea out of the gray matter of his brain. Two candidates who wore wore nominated on the Democratic ticket for tho legislature iu Warren county, N.
