Eoso Gernou had told us nothing new, comparatively speaking. Cer- taitlly she declared herself to bo iuno- dent of tho crime and accused Strent, but if \vo found Strent ho might declare himself innocent nnd accuse her. One or tho other of them must necessarily be guilty, ns they alone had Seen Felix on that fata)., night. Roso Was being closely •watched by n detective, so that we could obtain her. evidence at any moment. It now remained for us to find Strent and Ifenrhis story. Francis believed Strent htid killed his brother. I had my doubts, as I could see no motive for his committing the crlvno, whore- as Rose, ita a-fit of blind anger, might have done so, Mevxick's theory as to her guilt was more in accordance with my belief. V . , Hitherto we kept the case from being , meddled vith by the police, but now theyljegan to handle the matter. In- iofmed by Francis assto thewhorea- bonts of the body, they dragged the pool near the Feu inn and recovered the corpse of the nnhappy;youug man. Then the . inspector wrote a peremptory letter to Francis, reqnesting him to come, down and attend the inquest There was a note of suspicion in the letter, and Francis could not very well help ;obeying the summons. , - He requested me to come with him, which I had . every intention of doing. We settled ihe time of our departure and before going saw Olivia and Dr. Merrick. Mrs. Bellin had not been informed of the death of Felix, nor did she suspect that anything wrong was going on under her very nose. Thanks to the wonderful resemblance between the twins, she accepted Felix as Francis and' Francis as himself without the slightest suspicion. At first she had objected to the engagement, but afterward, learning that Brairfield possessed a good income, consented. To be sure, she would have been better pleased 'had Olivia married a title, but as her daughter declared she would marry no one but Francis Mrs. Bellin gave way with a good grace. As to Olivia, she was terribly *ismay- ed when she heard Francis was going to Marshmiuster, and she dreaded lest he should be accused of his brother's murder. The actions of Francis had been so very peculiar that I was afraid to tell them to the inspector lest he should think the young man guilty; At the same time it was impossible to keep, them secret, as Francis had thrown the body of his brother into the pool and would have to explain to the inspector how it got there. Our only chance of proving him to be innocent lay in finding Strent, and where he was to bo discovered none of us knew. Merrick's clever brain discovered a clew to the destination of the fugitive. "Did yon ride to the Fen inn from Marshnrinstor?" he asked Francis. "No. Had I come by train to Marsb- minster I would have gone to Bellin Hall, where my brother was staying, and seen him before Olivia." "It's a pity you did not go there," gatd Merrick thoughtfully. "All'this trouble might have then been avoided. Well, how did you get to tho Feu inn?" "I took the train from London to Starby, hired a horse there and rode to the Fen inn." is so. I am certain there is an understanding between Eoso and Stteiit. If that detective watching Rose Only knew Streut, I am certain he would catch him paying her n ( visit. " "Why not give the detective a picture of tho man?" suggested Francis. "Why not indeed?" I retorted derisively. "Because wo haven't got a picture." ' 'I have one at my rooms, "said Francis. .

Still I tmnk it is sufficiently liko hiia.'^ "Capital," said tlifj doctor, rubbing his hands. "Jt'B a good thing you employed your leisure in that way, Mr. Briarfleld. Itinay do you a great service." "You think I am in danger?" * "I think you stand in a perilous position, '' replied the doctor gravely. ' 'Your very efforts to preserve your secret and baffle Denham will score against you with the police. ,And you must toll them all, seeing you know where the body was to be found." "I'll toll them all and do the best lean," said Francis, turning pale, "but Eose can prove I was never out of my room." "No, she can't Bose bed, and for aught she knows you might have come down and quarreled with yonr Brother afterward. Your only chance, Mr. Briarfield, of proving your innocence is to find Strent. If you give that portrait to the detective watching Eose Gernon, I believe you'll lay hauds on him, but it's a mere chance." "There is another means of identification, " said I. "Strent is lame, so if a lame man calls on Miss Gernon my detective, aided by the picture, will know it is Streut." "Well, go and try my plan," said Merriok, shaking Francis by the baud. "I hope for your sake, Mr. Briarfield, it will be successful." When wo left the doctor, Francis looked pale and upset. He was just beginning to realize the predicament in which ho stood. I was afraid myself that when all was taown he would be arrested. His own actions looked blaok, though I knew they were douo out of pure foolishness. Had he only trusted me at the time, all the trouble would have been averted. As it -w&s, I determined to stand by him to tho end. "Cheer np, Briarfield," "said L clapping him on his back. "If Merriok and I solved so much of the mystery, yon may be sure we'll find out tho rest." "It's the newpapors I'm thinking of," he said ruefully. "If all this foolishness gets into Che press, Mrs; Bellin will never let me many Olivia." "I don't think Mrs. Bollin will have much say in the matter," I answered dryly. "Olivia is not tho kind of woman to give np her lover so easily, particularly when she knows tho truth. She'll stick to yon, as I intend to da As to tho press, yon forget that tho inquest is at Marshmiuster, which only possesses a weekly paper. I know the editor and can keep all details out of it Cheer np." "Thaqk yon, Denharo," said the poor fellow gratefully. "Yon are the best friend I have." "Faith, you didn't think so at Paris, Briarfleld. I've np doubt that there yon cursed me by all-your, gods for a meddlesome fool." At this he laughed and began to pick up his spirits. We saw the detective .who was watching Rose Gernon and gave him the picture drawn by Francis, with a full description of the man he wanted. Especially did wo lay stress on the lameness, and in tho eud our detective promised that he would nail any man answering to our description. I uavo him mv address at MarBh- miustor and told him to wire when be found out tho whereabouts of Strout I also told him to wire to Morriok, as ilia doctor was anxious to know it his ihpory would prove correct, Uoxt day we wout down to Marsh- minster. By permission Francis staid with me at Aunt Jauo'B house, aud earning that ho was in trouble the two old ladies made much of him. We saw tho inspector of police, who was a friend of mine, and loaruod that tho body of Felix Briarfleld was at the niorguo ot Mnwhrningtor. T »o iniweet \vtvs to be held next morning, and all arrangements had been rHade. Whett the inspector had supplied *lB With Ihis information, we sat down ahd told him the whole story as has been hero set forth. He listened with much astonishment and expressed himself to that end. "I never read a novel to tonch this, *' he said, staring at Francis. "Troth 16 strange* than fiction, after all. You greatly resemble your unhappy brother, Mr. Briarfield." "Is tho bony much decomposed?" asked I, seeing that Francis remained silent. "4t'S recognizable only," replied the Inspector. ' 'You acted Very foolishly in jhis matter, both of you. Why did yon not come and tell me about it all at once?" "I was afraid of being accused of killing my brother," said Francis faintly. "You've made it ten times worse now," said tho inspector dryly. "Had you wished to damn yourself, yott could not have gone to work in a more pigheaded fashion." ' 'Are you going to arrest me?" "No. There is not sufficient evidence againUt yon. Besides I quite believe your story. Still,'' added he, with some hesitation, "you'have to face the coroner tomorrow. He may not believe yon, . ... ».

"Well, judging from-What you have : told me, I should think the best thing would bo to find Strout," said the in- .spector. ''Ho is tho only man to solve the mystery. Failing him, you'd better get Rose Gernon down. Her evidence may.go to prove that Mr. Briarfleld was in bed at .the time Felix was in the house." "'•'•• . . . "I'll wire for her to come down at once," I said, jumping up. ' "It will be as well. I'll send a man over to Starby and find out if Strent delivered the horso to the livery stable, keeper. I wish to heaven, Denham," said the inspector, raging at me, "that you had told me all about this at first" "I acted for the best" "I've no doubt you did," he replied ill ternperedly, tbnt I hate your amateur detectives. They simply muddle things. I'd have straightened out this coil long ago had I taken it in hand." "I have my doubts of that," said 1 dryly and went off to the telegraph office. There I sent a telegram to Rose Gbmon asking her to come down by the early train next morning and also informed the detective that I wished her to come. I knew quite well she would not dare to refuse, and, moreover, that my detective would send a man to watch her, while he waited round her house for the possible appearance of Strent When I got back to tho inspector's room, I found that his ill temper had vanished, aud ho was doing his best to console Francis. "I've seen a man in a worse plight than is yours, Mr. Briarfield," he was saying when I entered, "and yet he came out all right in tho end. The pause of his predicament was similar." "What's that?" said Francis, looking np. "Lack of moral courage. Had you told Denham at the time and then both. of you had told me, wo might have laid 'our hauds on Rose Gernou and Streut As it was, yon gave them time to make np their plans and got away." "Roso hasn't got away," said I grimly. "She's safe enough and will bo here tomorrow." "I wiwh wo could say tho same about Streut," said tho inspector. "Do you think be IB guilty?" asked Francis. ) . "Upon my word, sir, after all my experience of tho law, I am afraid to say who is guilty and who isn't That the-, ory of Dr. Men-iok's regarding Rose Gernon is feasible enough. She certainly Heonui to have had more motive for killing your brother than had Streut" "If* my opinion," Bald I, "that there is a relationship between Strait and Rose.

Those, however, were all theories, and wo parted for tho night without coming to any decision as to who was the guilty party, in tho morning 1 received A telegram from Merriok aud went off with it a.t ouoo to tho inspector.

V THE ABSENTEE VICEROY. The Irish People Have Jist CHUM For' Complaint Against Lord Houguton. The latest grievance discovered by the Paruollites is well founded and is calculated to win them general popular sympathy in Ireland. It is that the lord lieutenant is an absentee. .It is a fact that Lord Houghtou spends as little- time as possible in the country from which ho draws his salary of £20,000 a year. The Irish people could very well do without his lordship, but they naturally grieve aa business men as well as patriots to see that good money is spent out of. tho country, especially as they have provided it out of funds none too ample at the best times. ' Lord Bought on is enormously wealthy. having inherited the; bulk of tho big fortune of bis unolo, tho late Lord Crowe, in addition to his own previously large income. Ho has no personal ' need of the viceroy's salary, and, it rumor can bo relied upon, has no twtto for the office. It is uot surprising; therefore, to learn that he is contemplating retiring.
