6 THE BEPUBLIOAN: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBEB 14, 1891. COPYRIGHT BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION, 1981. He was now within sight of the house, and he quickened his pace, seeing in imagination Olympia waiting for him there. How sweet beyond thought would their reunion bet For her he had surrendered everything. Had there been more to give he would have given it; and ha knew with a blessed certainty that she would love the poor artist ns much as and even more than the hundredfold millionaire. They would find their riches in each other, and the treasure of a thousand worlds would be well exchanged for that. Thus thinking he hurried forward and crossed the lawn, which in a broad expanse surrounded the house. A broad .graveled drive, sweeping in a semicircle, led to the veranda and the front entrance. On this he saw the marks of carriage wheels and of horses' hoofs- evidence that Garcia had kept his compact. Yes, Olympia must actually be in the 1 house! He realized now the alternative which hitherto he had not permitted himself to contemplate—that Sallie, after robbing him of all, might have omitted to fulfill her part of the agreement. Had she done this he would have had no remedy. His joy that tli'ia crowning misery had be^i spared him was so great that lie could find it in his heart to bless the enemy who had tormented him as seldom man had been tormented. He sprang lightly on the veranda, and trod it with resounding footsteps. He had thought that Olympia might hear him and come forth to meet him, but she did not appear. No doubt she was too weak for any exertion, and he must moderate the first manifestations of his happiness lest she bo overcome. But his happiness was to last for a, lifetime; he could afford to put a curb upon it at the outset. The door stood wide open. His pulses beat with the buoyancy of boyhood as he crossed the threshold. The staircase was on the left; a morning room on the right: He entered this room. On a divan in the large bow window some cushions were placed, and upon the cushions, with a shawl thrown over her, lay Olympia. She lay in an easy position, her right cheek resting on her hand. She appeared to be asleep. Grown weary with waiting for him, she had probably dropped off into n, nap. He approached her softly, intending to awaken her with a kiss. He knelt down beside her and bent over her. Sound indeed -was her repose. There was no movement of her bosom. No breath came between her parted lips. There was no throbbing in the artery of her white wrist. Her checks wero very pale. She looked as lovely as a spirit, but in that warm spring air'she was strangely cold. Why was it? What was it? "Olympia!" he said softly, "wake! it is I!" She did not stir. "Olympia!" clamored a wild voice, rising to a shriek, resounding and echoing through the empty house. "Olympia!" And then a harsh cry struggling in the throat—"Olympia!" But Olympia heard not. She lay pale and still as before, with her cheek upon her hand. After a while Keppel Darke rose from his knees, another man than when ho knelt down. His face was pinched and haggard, but he vras now calm. He felt in his pocket, and an ejaculation of sat- infaev.iou escaped him as he drew out his revolver. He had feared that, in the bewilderment of the morning, he might have lost it. He examined the weapon; it was loaded, every chamber, and in perfect order. Ho cocked it, a7id then, bending d'jwii once more, kissed Olympiad face. As he raised himself erect, - and placwl the muzzle against his temple, he faced the window, and hisglauco traveled out across lawn and woodland, bathed in the light of the declining sun —the lovely earth, rejoicing in spring, which lie would never see again. At a distance of a couple of hundred yards the drive parsed through a gateway and was merged in a country road, extending in the direction of the swamp, where lay the bones of Francois Dnpont. And just at the turning of the road, half a mile away, was visible an object that, even at that m.,:.;...:'u. c;.v.;.e(l Kc-iipi-l Dar'k;; to rt:;y his hand and lower the revolver. The object was u carriage and horses, and be- gicie it stood two figures. Tho carriage seemed to have met with Burnt; accident. Kvpptl Kazed for'a few moments with burning eyes. Gradually a terrible smile . wrinkled his cheeks. lie uncocked the revolver, .slipped it back in his pocket and bounded out of the room. Leaving the house l;3' a ('lour iu the rear, and taking ad vantage' of the concealment of the ahrifi/i.'ery. he gained the woodland, and then set ofi at a, swift, leaping run in the direction of the carriage. U:.; eoursu would keep him out of sight of the two persons until ho was close upon them. Iu It'.vs than five minutes he was very near. Peering out between the trees, he riajre had come off, the pin having given away, (iarcia was working to remedy the- brukci piece, and Sallie, clad in man's clothes, was leaning against the bole of 11 young oak hard by, with her hand* hanging folded iu front of her. Her utter unconsciousness of the eyes that wero liiX'd upon her seemed strange to Ki.-piK.-l. Ho was lr-ilf inclined to sus- IKJC-I affectation. To rest tho matter, he drevr his revolver, r.ocked and leveled it. lie was an excellent shut. He could hit a sidllni;; at twenty paces nine- time.^ in ten. He took aim at a button on Bailie's coat, just over heart. Only an hnper- cei.iible <'O!j'.:".'.':tiou of his furellner w:*-* nee-led to send her to another world. She did v«i c.hango hrr position, bnt >-\- 'lcl> 1 ,1 i i iJMWia ilij\ " V Let os give it up and walk. • "This is my evil day—and yours, also, 0 said he whom she called Nanak. "At sit o'clock the worst will be passed, but tmtil then" "The worstl This has been the happiest and most successful day of my life! If I were to die this moment I should die satisfied. But you and I, my dear prince, are not going to die just yet, in spite of that broken wheelpin. You shall buy back your kingdom, or intrigue it back" "Be still! It has cornel" said the other, rising to his feet as Keppol left his concealment behind the trees and advanced upon them, covering Sallie with his weapon. The suddenness of the apparition added, perhaps, to other influences, overthrew the woman's habitual self command. She crouched with the instinctive impulse to escape, but the muzzle of the revolver followed her. "Stand up!" said Keppel. "Are you afraid to die?" "Why do you do this?" she demanded, fiercely. "Have I not kept my promise?" "Even her dead body is worth a universe of souls like yours; but you have taken her life, and you must join your sister devils. It is no punishment; but there can be none for you in this world. You shall go elsewhere." "I tell you she is alive! Speak to him, Nanak! he will believe you. What does he mean? She is alive!" "It is the evil hour," said the man, indifferently. "It cannot be averted." He spoke in an abstracted tone, and stood staring on the ground with his anna hanging "JJ his side. "The evil hour!" he repeated. "Coward—not to help me! And you. Keppel Darke! coward to kill a defence- less woman! Oh, if I had a weapon! Give me an equal chance and I will not be the first to cry for mercy." "Yes, it shall be so," said Keppel. "I, too, prefer it. You shall have the chance you think so valuable." "Have you another pistol?" she asked, with fierce, searching eyes. "No; bitt you shall have your chance at this. We will draw lots for it. Garcia, pluck two grasses and hold them for us. The one who wins shoots." Garcia complied. There was an expression of weary contempt on his features as he held out the grasses, concealing their length. "You cannot avert it," he said to Sallie, as she stood trembling with suspense, now flushed, now white. "I shall win—I will kill you yet, Keppel Darke!" she said between her teeth. Keppol was now as impassive as Garcia. "Which gets the pistol—the short grass or the long?" "The long," said Sallie. "There it lies," rejoined Keppel, placing the revolver on the turf at her feet. "Now, are you ready?' "Yes—I shall win!" "Draw, then!"' They both drew simultaneously. Sallie won. She threw up her bands with a wild laugh, and then stooped to pick up the weapon. But Garcia had already secured it. Keppel stepped back a pace or two and stood with his hands clasped behind him. "Give it to me!" said Sallie, "I will kill him myself. Ah, Keppel Darke—at last!" "You cannot kill him," returned the other, retaining the weapon. "It is you who must die—you and I." "Are you mad? Give me the revolver!" She tried to snatch it from him. He avoided her movement, and, with a quick turn of the arm, aimed at her heart and iired. She remained erect a moment, her eyes dilating in a stare of rage and amazement. As she sank forward, the wound being almost instantly fatal, the mysterious being who had slain her received her in his arms and, half kneeling, supported her against his shoulder. "You Caucasians do not understand love," lie said, looking up with it quiet face sit Keppel. "You do riot; this woman did not, but she understands now. Hitherto many things have separated us, but henceforth we shall bo together. Why do you wait here. Go home to your Olympia. Bo happy in your way. The papers you signed are destroyed with this woman. Leave us to ourselves." "You will come with me," said Keppel sternly. "You will answer for Sallio's life as well as for Olympia's. My revenges and my hopes are both ended." "Olympia is alive," returned the other quietly. "What you mistook for death was only trance. I should have awakened her as soon as we were off your gi-uundt;/' He paused and waved his arm with a peculiar gesture. "She is awake now," he added, "and she looks for you. Go to her and leave us to ourselves." '•Is this the truth?" cried Keppel. The other made no reply. He passed his arms beneath Bailie's body and raised her as easily as if she were an infant. The swamp lay on the left of the road, at a distance of thirty yards. Thither, with his burden, the man directed his steps. Keppel gazed after him, but did uot follow, not divining' bis purpose. As the man approached the margin of the swamp ho clasped the dead body more closely to his breast. He was now partly veiled from Keppel's eyes by the bright green foliage that grew luxuri- umly in this spot. Tho black, still water reflected the warm hues of the afternoon sky. Quickly and with strange agility the man leaped from one, quaking hummock of turf to another, until he was far out in the deepest part of the swamp. One more leap he gave; the water splashed upward and then closed over him and that which he carried. The ripples widened out and died away, and all was as before. Keppel turned toward the house. The level sun shone full upon it and upon u figure standing on v'.ie veranda. Olyuipia was alive Til.' END. Hfc PAUSES AT THROWS OFF PHILADELPHIA AND A FEW REMARKS. this Lend* to Some Ueltirluui Rum In a- Mons—Tale of a Mau T«a«her Who Tried to Snatch a Brand front the Burning—He Still Live*. [Copyright, 1801, by Edgar W. Xye.) PHILADELPHIA, October. —Philadelphia is pre-eminently a city of homes. The domestic quality stands first of all with the true Philadelphian, and other matters are made secondary to it. Somehow this gives us faith in the Philadelphian and respect for him. Twenty years ago Philadelphia had over 600 b\> U' _ t - iul ,ux ui.r People with imp', re blood may be said lo i'.\i:-i, not live.

Coned thi-<omU- AT SCHOOL. building associations in prosperous operation. The custom, even then, of selling to people of small means a lot and home, to be paid for in the shape of rent, was quite general and successful. Everything is done here to foster the home. The fostering hand of Philadelphia has a steady job, winter and summer. The food supply of this city is practically unlimited. One can always buy things here for eating purposes, and at a reasonable price. The markets are large, abundant and well supplied with almost everything from stewed terrapin to pickled pemmican. The water supply is a source of great local pride, and much of the good health of the community seems to be due to that. Physicians tell me that open wells should be looked upon with much suspicion, and 1 believe that to be true. Much poison is engendered in open wells by the decay of insects alone, which fall in and are unable to get out again until decomposition has taken place. Other animal life also conceals itself in the bottom of the well, so that the old oaken bucket, the one-thing-and-another bucket that hanged in the well, is at times as productive of injurious results as the wine cup. 1 remember that we had a school well near the gothic dugout in which I used to read Horace and Veritas, with my thoughts far away in the Greek and Roman suburbs and my little soiled toe in a rathole under my desk. Once the typhoid fever broke out in our school and carried off enough of my class in Sallust so that 1 was almost at the head. I guess 1 would have been at the head of the class if it had not occurred to the teacher to have the water analyzed and the well cleaned out. They found at that time, as near as I can recall the circumstance after so long a time, three moss covered buckets that had disappeared many years before, a gallon of angleworms that had died in one another's arms, a venerable dictionary of the English language, a blackboard eraser, an old Bay State shawl, a ladder, a tin dinner pail, a pair of yarn mittens and a former teacher named Rider, who had disappeared the day before he was to come to our ho;ise to board. And yet we lived as well at the time as most of the neighbors did. The manufactures of Philadelphia are very extensive, and said to be greater than in any other city of the Union, extending all the way along the scale from the iron bridge of commerce down to the unassuming as helve of the work-a- day world. It is safe to say that the city is one of the most prosperous in this respect within the borders of our trim little republic. The exports of Philadelphia used to double every five years, but whether this ratio has been maintained recently I have not the data at hand for ascertaining, and on the instructions for pushing the bell button in my room I do not see any authority which will warrant my ringing for more data. Bach room is supposed to be supplied with all the data it ought to have at one time, 1 presume, and if one wishes to use more he must do it at his own risk and his own expense. The Mathilde Adler Loeb Dispensary is a free-for-all institution founded by Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Adler. There is also a Home for Aged and Infirm Israelites, with a capacity of 100 inmates. 1 do not know why it should be so large. The information that there is a possibility of the time coming when there will DO 100 Israelites in this country who cannot take care of themselves and loan money to others will come to many of my readers like a clap of thunder from a clear sky. it is dedicated to the relief of the sick and wounded, "without regard to creed, color or nationality," That throws more light on the subject. 1 did not visit it, but 1 will bet a new pack of foxhounds against a two bushel bag of anise seed and a full cry that the institution is tilled with colored people. No colored man is going to allow a nice new hospital to remain vacant so long as he can disembowel his foot with an ax and then get nursed back to health again. Tho broad spirit of kindliness and generosity shown in the construction of the.* and many other institutions in Philadelphia is manifest everywhere, and to be called the City of Brotherly Love is an ambition which is laiKl-.r'o to a. degree. I do not ki^ow what n i*> to be laud-able to adL-i , bUthe u WJCW9 W a kiLk vluch I ttow reading and 1 thought 1 would use it. Sometimes we find charity and tolerance where w* would least expect It, and vice verm, in North Carolina, where I may now be regarded aa a summer resident) taxpayer and fellow citizen, there is, in some parts of the state, a strong religious sentiment which must be extremely gratifying to .a factional deity. 1 do n6t know, of course, how a prayer is received at the Throne of Grace which is ticketed as coming from the Reformed or Established or Re-established This-that-or-the-other Church South, or the Hardshell Aquatic church looking northwest. The committee on credentials must be pretty busy sometimes settling the question of whether rain prayed for by the high church shall be supplied or the cessation of rain requested by the low church, or whether good times with unlimited coinage shall be given by request of the Up-and-coming Church South or good times with a restricted currency be sent to the country in answer to the requests of the Up- and-coming Church North. A man teacher, who is a pronounced Episcopalian and who is zealous as all should be in every walk of life, got into difficulty a few weeks ago not far from my cabin home. He and the mother of a young girl of the neighborhood had talked the matter over and decided to enter the name of the girl as an applicant for membership in the Episcopal church. But at that time a revival broke out in the community, led by a mail with limited information but great lung power. He was a plain man, with an active boil on the back of his neck. "His heart was good but his blood was bad," in the language of a tarueel acquaintance of mine. * The girl, however, was led away from the teachings of the Established church by the more passionate prayer of the revivalist, together with the vociferous tery rank and a« faded at the edges like the tail of ft red setter, He is oat* tainly a well meaning man, and live* almost exclusively on thin gruel and a well to do widow woman of advanced thought „ I give his •tor? as he tells it himaelf, and it la not a sensational story, but comes from a man who says that he la convinced now that his eeal took him too far. At another time he would ba more conservative and take his meals In the house, fie says that he would not Again place himself where he would become the topic of such a scathing prayer for the best pair of steers in Henderson county. He contemplates doing religions and possibly pastoral work in the future, but will guard against awaking a spirit of offensive prayer and will see in the future that when approaching the throne of Grace he will avoid jostling those who are armed.

The craze of the souvenir spoon seems to have made quite a stir.—Baltimore American. pun- song service led by him with the aid of a little black walnut organ in which the tremulo had been pulled out so far that it could not be got back. The mother tried to show her how it would pain her to be saved in this informal and vociferous manner, but she still attended the revival, obtaining thereby much comfort and steady company to and from. The mother became quite exercised over this matter and her housework together, and so called in the man teacher and asked if he would not go with hex to the meeting and see if he could not persuade the young woman to return. He had a kind heart, and so he said he would. He went in while the mother remained outside waiting. As he came in he saw that the young girl was on the mourners' bench; but he had promised her mother, and so he went to where she stood. All were singing. He spoke to her softly and asked her to return with him and have some style about her, but she shook her head. Then the leader said, "Let us pray." His prayer consisted of a general attack on the man teacher, "the devil that had come among us'to steal away the lambs of the fold." etc. The prayer was no doubt actionable. Of course the man teacher should have had more sense than to go in there and try to snatch a brand from the burning when it was really another man's brand. When you fool with another man's brand out where I used to live you suddenly find yourself feeling around with your feet for a flour barrel which some rude hand has kicked away. (The idea of kicking away a flour barrel by means of the rude hand is original with me.) Well, to make a long story short, another hymn followed and then a prayer that left the Throne of Grace fully informed regarding the record of the man teacher. It referred to him as the child of hell and heir presumptive to that low, malarial piece of property. It was a prayer that would peel the varnish off an ordinary pulpit and scorch the fringe on the altar cloth. It was replete with sensational information and crisp editorial comment. It had hard words in it, and was highly flavored with references to hell as a railroad center and general outfitting point for people who toyed with brands which others were in the act of snatching from the burning. The result was that iu the back part of the sanctuary a feeling was created to that extent that in fifteen minutes the man teacher fled, followed by a mob, one or two of whom he saw pulling their knives as they came. The mother ran one way and the man teacher the other. Judge—You have already been ishedmany, many times, I see.
