THE REPUBLICAN : ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1<>, 1891. COPYRIGHT BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION, 1001. CHAPTER XV. J, O V E CONTINUED. "Iwillmarrii ynu when yon bring Kcp- J)CL J-J(.ts)'i\.(s ttCI'Ct Olyrapiiv Raven, since the night of the count's ball, hud been in n condition •which gave her friend Mrs. Bannick some anxiety. She was not ill, but she was not her usual self. She sat for long periorla of time plunged in intense meditation; then she would rise and Avander restlessly about; sometimes her mood would be gloomy, sometimes a sudden change to hilarity would come over her. In answer to the tender questionings of her friend, Olyuipia would reply, with a look of surprise, that she was perfectly well; and Mrs. Haven, whom Mrs. Bannick consulted, shook her head and declared that Olyuipia looked to her about the samo as usual; she had never been able to understand her, anyway! Mrs. Raven, never a brilliant or powerful intellect, had been growiiig old of late; she was very deaf, and spent her time chiefly in reading old newspapers. Her mind was dull and vague, and she was inclined to resent any attempt to arouse her to a living interest in what was passing around her. "I'm afraid," said Tom's wife to her husband, as he was putting on a clean shirt for dinner, "that Olympia was thrown off her balance by that hypnotizing business. Nobody really understands what these trances are; and there may be more harm in them than we imagine." "She'll come around all right," answered Tom, with cheerful optimism. "Every young unmarried girl goes queer once in a while; and quite proper, too!" Olympia did not herself know anything of the mysterious part she had played on the night of February twenty- fifth. It had accidentally transpired some time before that she was an exceptionally good subject for hypnotic experiments, and the count had intimated that she might, if she chose, become instrumental iu discovering the murderer of Harry Trent. She finally consented, on condition that she ba not informed of the manner in which her power was used. She was willing to become an instrument in the cause of justice, but shrank from being made privy to tho . means adopted. Garcia, after tho first experiments, was able to throw her into a trance without her even knowing of his proximity; and it had thus been possible to take her to the count's house and back again without any consciousness of the transaction on her part. But the experience had had other effects upon her which were not as 'yet suspected by any one. She was Kitting at the piano one afternoon when the count came in. The air was still vibrating with delicate harmonies, softly tuned into life by her lingers, as she turned to meet him. It was the first time he had come to her since the night of the ball. "I was thinking about you, Count do Lisle," she said, as she gave him her hand, "and I was expecting you." "That is good news," he replied. "Can I be of any use to you?" She looked at him while he was speaking in a singular manner, as if she saw, not his physical self, but something within that or emanating from it. Her eyes sparkled, and their glance was not fixed, but wandered from point to point of the count's face. A smile glimmered on her lips and. was gone, and again returned, like light upon dimpling water. Though she sat still, there was a subtle unrest perceptible in her, as if the thoughts that traversed her mind to and fro left vibrations and fine stirrings in her palpable organism. In the shadowy room Olympia seemed spiritrfttlistic and to possess spiritual powers, so that the count felt aa if she could see what was in his brain as easily as she could see his face. "The time is come when we must part," she said, after a pause. "Part! What do you mean? Where are you going? What has happened?" He was startled out of his customary self possession, and spoke impulsively. "Yes, Count de Lisle, we must part," $he repeated, smiling stiH mysteriously. "And we must never jneet again, in this world or the next." She said this so decisively and yet so quietly that the count was dumfounded. He could not think she was jesting, and yet how could she be in earnest? He had been flattering himself of l»to that she had been learning to regajd him with p.nytbiug but indifference. ,®vennow, augh her words were so atBBWge, her had never had such, " 38. 'Why must we part?" hie "(Jive me a reason. What h&a to change you since I saw you "Can. yojj give. "Ahl" she said quickly, "I have a personal reason on the other side." "What is it?" She turned on tho piano stool on which she had been sitting, and began to touch the chords of the instrument, but so lightly that they responded, as it were, in a whisper of melody. "I have something to do," she replied. "I havo lost three yearn already. I cannot go on so. I must devote myself to that only." "To what? Cannot I help you?" "You don't know what you are asking, Count do Lisle," she replied, glancing at him over her shoulder. "You know—I have told you—that I love some one. I wish to devote myself to him. How can you help mo in that?" "Do you moan'' "I mean Keppel Darke. There is no one rOse that I can love." "Ah—Keppel Darke! You aro jesting, after all. A sentiment—a memory —is not love. 'This is not your true reason. Why do you play with me?" "Do you think Keppel Darko is dead?" asked Olympia, harmonizing her tones with the notes she was drawing from the keys. "I thought so once, but I have begun to feel that he is alive. I know it in my heart. I see him in dreams. Ho is often near me. I am happy in this communion with him. Whatever disturbs it I wish should cease. And nothing disturbs it so much as tho Count de Lisle." "Olympia, you aro not speaking seriously; you are smiling." "Why should I not smile? I am happy. What am I to you?" "You are everything to me!" he said impetuously. "I love you!" "Is that the first time you have Said those words to a woman?" she asked, facing him. The question embarrassed him, and he hesitated. She laughed. "I will not take you at your word," she said. "Keppel Darke loved no one but me; I gave him my promise, and it shall never be broken. Would you break your promise in my place, Count de Lisle? Or would you wish me to be your wife, knowing that I loved him?" "Indeed I would!" he exclaimed. She shook her head. "The man I would marry must be jealous of me." "Jealous of a dead man?" "Why do you say Keppel Darko is dead? Have you killed him?" "I only say marry me, and you may lovo him all you will!" Olympia. rose and closed the piano. The count also rose, and they confronted each other for a moment. "I will marry you," she eaid at length, "when you bring Keppel Darke here, and ho bids mo do so." Ho bent forward and looked in her eyes. There must have been in them some speaking light, revealing what her woman's tongue refused to tell. "Olympia!" he cried, in a voice too weighted with emotion to bo loud, "you know me—you have made a fool of me— but you love me!" His arms closed about her, and a fire of new life seemed to flame up in his heart as he felt her soft pressure against him. It went glowing through his veins, and images of ecstacy trembled in his brain. Across what gul£ of darkness had he passed since last he had held her thus! But peace and joy were only here. They kissed each other with a slow, deep kiss, full of memories of pain that was past, and of a present delight so exquisite that they half feared to move their lips, lest all should prove a dream and they should awake. Such happiness comes in moments only, yet when it conies the soul recognizes it as its true estate—a glimpse of the eternity iu which it was meant to dwell forever. No dream is half so fair as this brief reality, 'whose intensity makes all the rest of life seem dreamlike. In such a moment lovers live in heaven and are the peers of angels. "Oh, Keppel, why have you denied yourself so long?" sighed Olympia at last. "I should have known you at the first if I could have brought myself to believe that you would hide from me so." "A disguise like mine is something more than a cloak that can be thrown off and resumed at will," he replied. "From the first I have been as strange to myself as I have appeared to others. But for you I should never have found uiy real self again. With that change came so many changes I began to forget that I had ever been Keppel Darke, and all my youth and what belonged to it seemed never to havo been; but I was as if born middle aged, with no youth or kindly associations to humanize me. It' it had not been for you I should have lived on so, and at last died so, if a man without a childhood and a soul can be said to die." "Yes, you are yourself again now I" murmured Olympia. "I have felt a wall between us all this while; I knew, in some secret place of my heart, that you were on the other side; but yet I did not outwardly know it until the last day or two. It was like the fairy tales, when the prince is enchanted, and the princess cannot recognize him; but at last the spell is dissolved, and then they know each other. I am not afraid of you now; I can see through your beard, and your hair, and your eyeglasses; you are only Keppel!" and she gave a little laugh and drew down his face and kissed him. "J feel as if I were nothing but a mere child," said he, laughing, too. "I want to do nothing but sit here with you and love you, and talk to Jteu and hear you talk .and be silly—that is, really wise. My heart feels so light! Does yours?" "My heart sings like a bird—and I am the song! And the song says: 'I love Keppel Parks! J am glad he is alive, and that the Count de Lisle has vanished!' " "I hate that stiff, conventional phantom, too. But he has his uses, and we will make him be, useful to us. He is rich, and he is devoted to you!" "Do you wish to give we up to him, eir?" "Ah! He wants to marry you, I am told.!" you will let him majry nje if THE STORY OF ONE MELTZ BILL NYE GIVES HIS PAST HISTORY IN TWO LETTERS. The Trouble Began with nn Ice Cream Blowout, nnd Melt/.

Nyc.l BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N. 0.—Riding on the Richmond and Danville railroad the other clay for an hour or so, 1 was slightly startled on seeing the somewhat faded features of Mr. Corundum J. Meltz, a former fellow townsman of mine, who used to help me run the paper at home, up to the time the foreman took it in part payment of his salary. Mr. JVleltz now lives in North Carolina, and is editing the much obliged column of a Tarheel exchange. The much obliged column is that department which acknowledges tho receipt of a rutabaga in the form of a kangaroo and then takes the rutabaga in payment for same. I liui H worth iiclong- tnn ID.

Last week six specimens of deformed fruit and a sack of hulled corn came into his department. Besides this, he "was shown" a stalk of corn over 9 feet 5 inches in height and a pair of twin coltlconnected at birth by a natural neck yoke. Though some of these things, of course, are not edible, he says he does well, and that he ttoiwks the climate alone is far- mere nutritious than that of Wyoming. Looking over my papers when I got back to my fiat, i found "copy" of a little parallel column sendoff, which I was just about to print on Mr. Meltz when the foreman took charge. This is it: To tho Editor of Tills Paper: Sin—My attention has boon called to a most unwarranted and indecent attack madu upon inn by your paper In its last Jsaut; ro- 'giirdintf tlit! ico cream which was had on my lawn for tho children of prior property holders and voters of this place on thu J9th inst. \Vlien rt-.ipcetable and law abiding people urn attacked in this way it tw tluio to call a halt. The pain 1 felt on having my attention called to the reference can hardly bo overestimated. For years 1 havo been a constant reader of your paper, anil also havo been its frip.nd. Whan others about mo was downing it on every liaud, I havo said. "No, I think you are a little off in reRttrdBtothat." And sometimes when H was as much as u, man's li fo was worth to stand up for your paper 1 would stand up for it. Tho reference to me and the doings which was had at my houso was scurrilous in tho oxtretno. We had in every regard what might he called a rafc- tlinj,' time, and for you to attack it and make it a personal matter was, to me, most painful, and 1 think to be real low, as also does all with which 1 have boon thrown into contact with since the issue of your paper. 1 hate to ho all the time in priut and see my muiiB before the people, and It has been such a little whilo since 1 appeared in these columns in the capacity of * contributor, asking for a portion of your space for the purposu of thanking my many friends who had done so much to make the last illness of my wife a success. AH J say, I dislike to be constantly before the people in the light of a contributor, but when tho loading paper of our town sours on my ice cream and attacks my motives, as leaid, I think it is time to call a halt. 1 havo lived In this place now, boy and man, for over seven years, and 1 have yet to know of any paper ever before speaking an unkind- word regarding uiy course .of conduct. It was my ides to havo a good time on my own grounds, and to do all I could to make it ft success, and 1 spoke to you about sending down $ man to write it up more as a joke than anything else.

To Air. Corundum J. Meltz: SIR—Your note is printed adjacent to thcsa words of cheer, which will show how it was that wo spoke of your ico cream scuffle* in a frees and untrammelinl styltf. Tho llrat of our article. Mr. Mcltx, you will notice, tip pears almost verbatim as you wroto it, but before R'o-. ins to press our reporter, who went down to do your debauch, suffered so keenly from tho effects of your condensed milk and coriiRturch, together with tho lining of tho t'reoxer which he had scraped off in order to allay the pangs of hunger, that he added a few lines regarding your style of thruti sheet (.jenerosity. We well recall the day wo first mot yon hare in this oilico, and when you bucumu" «. member of our staff. You said then that you shrank from publicity. You havo been in the shrinking business evef since. You had been pointed out to us by our foreman, aud we still recall your appearance as you sat there tn our revolving chair with the glad sun light shimmering through your asparagus whiskers. You even then wore that same old bunch grass beard instead of a necktie, and the hornets built their nests in it every spring. It used to delight our, then devil to conie upon you suddenly and scar" a rabbit out of your whiskers. Corundum. You also wore a little peachstone charm in the form of a basket on your watch chain. The chain was made by one of your deserted wives, ft was made of horsehair, and was as pliable as an iron bridge. After that we met you on the street during a thunder shower. You explained to us your idea of Divine wrath while you hooked ua with your forefinger in our buttonhole aud held an umbrella over yourself with the other eo that one of the points took us just below the bosom. We can still remember what a oo!4 rain it was, and how chilly it felt on our stomach. We remember that your first idea regarding business was to print iu our paper a short advertisement , regarding u remedy which could be used at homo, anil which you said would catch a good many suckers, egjiectftjly younx folks and country people. Do you remtnnber tUutr a.o«r W had » euituert for }hj> freak air bo bei'oro (ho public through lhc> medium of tlui prcsH, but an a citi/.un of somo prominence for tho past seven years, boy and man. at;:iinst whom the tongue of scandal has nuvur to my knowledge been leveled, I must protest, and at tho samo time say that 1 do not propose to stand it. JVIy lawyer will also call upon yon today with a writ, which you may possibly understand bettor than this courteous note, which, if you use, 1 hopo you will seo ts spoiled correct. In my card to tho public; after tho loss of my recent wife, in which I said that I hoped at an early day to return tin* favor to thosi) who had been so thoughtful as to como ami lend out ami fuss around and arrange tho deceased so that sh« was lit to bo seen, p.lso in which 1 said (Jod moved in a mysterious way his wonders to perform, your printer used a .smu.ll g for the name of the Deity, and mado other breaks which has been a source of levity over senso. Yon will plcaso write a,n apologetic editorial for tho next issue of your paper or bo prepared for a sickening death which will make your relations turn away and look out of tho window during tho funeral. 1 liato to bo all tho time before tho public, and if I could havo my own way about it 1 would keep in tho background. Publicity has no charms for mo. For over two years 1 havo.seemed to live in a glass case. My course, therefore, has been of course criticised, but I would rather not be mado so prominent. 1 would rather Ihat others would introduce tho lecturer when ho comes hero and let me off. Of course I always havo introduced lecturers that came hero, and withsomosucceES, often doing it in such a way as to mako tho lecture itself sound very flat, but I would rather of not done it. I would rather keep in tho background. Yet 1 have always been kind of a favorite hero and had a seat on tho platform, often introducing the speaker for two seats and a local. It is rathe* 1 sad at tho age of sixty-one years to bo attacked by a paper to which 1 havo contributed oft and on for seven years, boy and man, brightening it up from week to week when tho editor's brain seemed infested with cockroaches and everything known to science except ideas, perhaps. how wo got a dray and paid four dollars to move it to the hall and four dollars to move it back, and how wo had to move it to a different house, as you bad moved in tho meantime, and had got us to move your cabinet organ for yon at eight dollars, and when we tried to play on it at tho hall wo found that you had removed the bellows from it? It is only as a matter of courtesy on tho part of tho postmaster that wo got your letter, for ho says that the stamp had been used before, and so ho wishes that you would not do that way any more. Ho nlso says that where you lived before you camo here, they say that your eldest son broke jail and came home, and that when a reward of C2(X) was offered you turned him over to tho sheriff, and that is the way you got your start. At Little Bethel, where you lived prior to that, the postmaster says you got shot in a watermelon patch with rock salt, and that before hot weather comes again you ought to get another dose. Tho genural impression Is that you havo been trying for sixty- one years to got hold of a scheme whereby you could do a kind act in secret and get it into the paper next to puro reading nial.te.r. You can trot out your lawyer, and we will meet him on grounds of social equality. Tomorrow we will publish an account of how the White Caps whipped you in Vigo county and put tobacco sauce on tho place. We do not fear you, Mr. Mult/, for wo regard you as an intellectual eggplant. You have wiolded too much influence over this paper already, and visitors who came hern whilo you wero waiting for tho proof of ono of your communications last week say that you aro tho samo man who was tarred and feathered in Wayne county, and that you have nevar settled for the tar. We can stand a good deal, Mr. Melt/, in tho way of free hand correspondence,, but wo learn that on t.h« strength of your communications, w h i c h havo too often appeared in these columns (we regret to say, because we could not think of pieces to run in their stead), you have been accorded transportation and refreshments for man and beast. It is now time to call a halt. Your attention will never ruoro »-if ter this be called to S.ny allusion to yourself in these columns. Wo now have another party who is going to take your place. He came yesterday with a sash of honey and n desire to avail himself of our columns. You aro therefore excused, Mr. Meltz. You may Original Notice. .T;unos Call.inan and .Tames ('.
