* 7- UPPEB DBSMOINBSi ALGONA IOWA. WEDNESDAY OCToBEft 19, 1898 A Brave Coward. By Robert Louis Stevenson. tr CI * APTER "—(Continued.) My wife and I, a man and a Woman, nave often agreed to wonder how a person could be at the same time so handsome and so repulsive as Northmour. He had the appearance of a finished gentleman; his face bore every mark of intelligence and courage, but you only had to look at him, even In his most amiable moment, to see that he had the temper of a slave captain. I never knew a character that was both explosive and revengeful to the same degree; he combined the vivacity of the South with the sustained and deadly hatreds of the North; and both traits were plainly written on his face, which was a sort of danger signal. In person he was tall, strong and active; his hair and complexion very dark; Ms features handsomely designed, but spoiled by a menacing expression. At that moment he was somewhat paler than by nature; he wore a heavy frown; and his lips worked, and lie •looked sharply round as he a man besieged with apprehensions. And yet I thought he had a look of triumph underlying all l as though he had already done much, and was near the end of an achievement. • Partly from a scruple of delicacy— which I dare say came too late—partly from the pleasure of startling an acquaintance, I desired to make my presence known to him without delay. • I got suddenly to my feet, and stepped forward. "Northmour!" said I. ! I have never had BO shocking a surprise in all my days. He leaped on me without a word; something shone in his hand; and he struck for my heart with a dagger. At the same moment I knocked him head over heels. Whether it was my quickness, or his own uncertainty, I know not; but the blade only grazed my shoulder, while the hilt and his flst struck me violently on the mouth. I fled,' but not far. I had often and often observed the capabilities of the sand hills for protracted ambush on stealthy advances and retreats; and, not ten yards from the scene of the scuffle, plumped down again upon the grass. The lantern had fallen and gone out. But what was my astonishment to see Northmour slip at a bound into the pavilion, and hear him bar the door behind him with a clang of iron! He had not pursued me. He had run 'away. Northmour, whom I knew for •the most implacable and daring of men, had run away! • As I thus stood transfixed with wonder, I began to grow painfully conscious of the injuries I had received in the scuffle; I skulked around among the sand hills; and, by a devious path, regained the shelter of the wood. On the way, the old nurse passed again within several yards of me, still carrying her lantern, on the return journey to the mansion house of Graden. This made a seventh suspicious feature in the case. Northmour and his guests, it appeared, were to cook and do the cleaning for themselves, while the old woman continued to inhabit the big empty barrack among the policies. There must surely be great cause for secrecy, when so many inconveniences were confronted to preserve it. So thinking, I made my way to the den. For greater security, I trod out .the embers of the fire, and lit my lantern to examine the wound upon my shoulder. It was a trifling hurt, though it bled freely, and I dressed it as well as I could (for its position made it difficult to reach) with some rags and cold water from the spring. While I was thus busied, I mentally declared war against Northmour and his mystery. beach when I saw him take forcible possession of her hand. She struggled, and uttered a cry that was al* most a scream. I sprang to my feet, unmindful of my strange position; but, ere I had taken a step I saw North- mour bare-headed and bowing very low, as if to apologize; and dropped again at once into my ambush. A few words were interchanged, and then, with another bow, he left the beach to return to the pavilion. He passed not far from me, and I could see him, flushed and lowering, and cutting savagely with his cane among the grass. It was not without satisfaction that I recognized my own handiwork In the great cut under his right eye, and a considerable discoloration around the socket. For some time the girl remained where he had left her, looking out past the islet and over the bright sea. Then with a start as one who throws oft preoccupation and puts energy again upon its metal, she broke into a rapid and decisive walk. She also was much incensed by what had passed. She had forgotten where she was. And I beheld her walk straight into the borders of the quicksand where it is most abrupt and dangerous. Two or three steps further and her life would have been in serious jeopardy, when I slid down the face of the sand hill, which is there precipitous, and, running half way forward, called to her to stop. She did so, and turned round. There was not a tremor of fear in her behavior, and she marched directly up to me like a queen. "What does this mean?" she asked. "You were walking," I told her, "directly into Graden Floe." "You do not belong to these parts," she said again. "You speak like an educated man. What do you mean— you, a gentleman—by skulking like a spy about this desolate place? Tell me," she said, "who is it you hate?" "I hate no one," I answered, "and I fear no one face to face. My name is Cassiiis—Frank Cassilis. I lead the life of a vagabond for my own good pleasure. I am one of Northmour's oldest friends, and three nights ago when I addressed him on these links he stabbed me in the shoulder with a knife." "It was you!" she said. "Why he did so," I continued,, disregarding the interruption, "is more than I can guess and more than I care to. know. I have not many friends, nor am I very susceptible to friendship, but no man shall drive me from a place by terror. I had camped in Graden Sea-wood ere he came; I camp iu it still. If you think I mean harm to you or yours, madam, the remedy is in your hand. Tell him that my camp is in the Hemlock Den, and to-night he can stab me in safety while I sleep." With this I doffed my cap to her and scrambled up once more among the sand hills. I do not know why, but I felt a prodigious sense of injustice and felt like a hero and a martyr; while, as a matter of fact, I had not a word to say in my defense nor so much as one plausible reason to offer for my conduct. Next day she came out about the same hour alone, and, as soon as tho sand hills concealed her from the pavilion, drew nearer to the edge, and CHAPTER III. For two days I skulked round the pavilion, profiting by the uneven surface of the links. I became an adept in the necessary tactics. These low hillocks and shallow dells, running one into another, became a kind of cloak of darkness for my enthralling, but perhaps dishonorable, pursuit. Yet, in spite of this advantage, I could learn but little of Northmour or his guests. •i Sometimes I thought the tall man must be confined to bed, for I remembered the feebleness of his gait; and sometimes I thought he must have gone clear away, and that Northmour and the young lady'remained alone together in the pavilion. The idea, even then, displeased me. Whether or not this pair were man and wife I had seen abundant reason to doubt the friendliness of their relation. Although I coujd hear nothing of what they said, and rarely so much as glean a decided expression on the face of either, there was a distance, almost a stiffness, in their bearing which showed them to be either unfamiliar or at enmity. On the morning of the third day she walked alone for some time, and I perceived! to my great concern, that she was more than once in tears. You will see that my heart was already interested more than I supposed. She had a-firm yet airy motion of the body, and earned her head with unimagin-r able grace; every step was a thing to look at, and she seemed in my eyes to breathe sweetness and distinction. The day was so agreeable, being calm and, (sunshiny, with a tranquil sea, 9.nd yet with a healthful piquancy vigor in the air, that, contrary to custom, she was tempted forth a second time to walk, On this occasion she JWRB accompanied by Northmour, and had beeo but 9 sboj-t while on the called me by name in guarded tones. I was astonished to observe that she was deadly pale, and seemingly under the influence of strong emotion. "Mr. Cassilis!" she cried; "Mr Cassilis!" I appeared at once, and leaped down upon the beach. .A remarkable air of relief overspread her countenance as soon as she saw me. "Oh!" she cried, with a hoarse sound, like one whose bosom has been lightened of weight. And then, "Thank God, you are still safe!" she added; "I knew if you were you would be here. Promise me that you will sleep no longer in that wood. You do not think how I suffer; all Jast night I could not sleep for thinking of your peril." "Peril?" I repeated. "Peril from whom? From Northmour?" "Not so," she said. "Did you think I would tell him after what you said?" "Not from Northmour?" I repeated. "Then how? From whom? I see none to be afraid of." "You must not ask me," was her reply, "for I am not free to tell you. Only believe me, and go hence—believe me, and go away quickly, quickly, for your life!" An appeal to his alarm is never a good plan to rid one's seif of a spirited young man. My obstinacy was but Increased by what she said, and I made it a point of honor to remain. And her solicitude for my safety still more confirmed me in the resolve. "You must not think me inquisitive, madam," I replied; "but if Graden is so dangerous a place you yourself perhaps remain here at some risk." She only looked at me reproachfully. "You and your father"—but she interrupted me almost with a gasp. "My father! How do you know that?" she cried. "I saw you together when you landed," was my answer; and I do not know why, but it seemed satisfactory to both of us, as indeed it was the truth. "But," I continued, "you need have no fear from me. I see you have some reason to be secret, and, you may believe me, your secret is ae safe with me as if I were in Graden Floe. I have scarce spokeo to any one for years. My horse is my only companion, even he, poor beast, is not beside it i. You see,' then, you may count on n p for silence. So tell me the truth, m. dear young lady, are you not in danger?" "Mr. Northmour says yoit are an honorable man," she returned, "and-1 believe It when I see you. I will tell you so much, you are right; we are in dreadful, dreadful danger, and you share it by remaining where you are." "Ah!" said I; "you have heard of me from Northmour? And he gives me a good character?" "I asked him about you last night," was her reply. "I pretended," she hesitated, "I pretended to have met you long ago and spoken to you of him. It was not true; but I could not help myself without betraying you and you had put me in a difllculty. He praiaed you highly." "And—you may permit me one question—does this danger come from Northmour?" I asked. "From Mr. Northmour?" she cried. "Oh, no; he stays with us to share it." "While you propose that I should run away?" I said. "You do not rate me very high. "Why should you stay?" she asked. "You are no friend of ours." I know not what came over me, for I had not been conscious of a similar weakness since I was a child, but I was so mortified by this retort that my eyes pricked and filled with tears as I continued to gaze upon her face. "No, no," she said in a changed vpice; "I did not mean the words unkindly." "It was I who offended," I said; and I held out my hand with a look of appeal that somehow touched her, for she gave me hers at once and even eagerly. I held it for awhile in mine and gazed into her eyes. It was she who first tore her hand away and, forgetting all about her request and the promise she had sought to extort, ran at the top of her speed and without turning till she was out of sight. And then I knew that I loved her, and thought in my glad heart that she —she herself—was not indifferent to my suit. Many a- time she has denied it in after days, but it was with a smiling but not a serious denial. The following day we again met. The next, and that was tho fourth day of our acquaintance, we met in the same spot, but early in the morning, with much familiarity, and yet much timidity on either side. When she had once more spoken about my danger and that, I understood, was her excuse for coming—I, who had prepar ed a great deal of talk during the night began to tell her how highly I valued her said interest, and how no one had ever cared to hear about my life, nor had I ever cared to relate it, before yesterday. Suddenly she interrupted me, saying with vehemence: "And yet, if you knew who I was you would not so much as speak tc> me!" I told her such a thought was madness, and, little as we had met, I counted her already a dear friend; 'but my protestations seemed only to make her more desperate. "My father is in hiding!" she cried. "My dear," I said, forgetting for the first time to add "young lady," "what do I care? If he were in hiding twenty times over, would it make one thought of change in you?" "Ah, but the cause?" she cried, "the cause! It is—" she faltered for a sec' ond—"it is disgraceful to us." (To be continued.) III K Tho Ditngcrous Bono. "I have sometimes wondered whether, a fever would affect a man today as it did in war time." said the veteran, "My experience isn't very extensive.but I wouldn't care to be a trained nurse if all typhoid convalescents resembled Jim Bolles. Our command was scouting in Southern Tennessee, covering a good deal of ground on a basis of very slim rations. Jim's acquaintance wLh field hospitals had not been wholly delightful, I imagine, and he reported for duty when he had 'hardly any symptoms of recovery but an appetite. Rusty ham and hardtack didn't seem to do Jim much good. He ate them, but they left him looking thinner and hungrier than ever. Two of the boys had captured a chicken somewhere, and had stolen away by themsedves for a quiet feast. Wandering lonesomely around, Jim discovered them. He stood and looked at the chicken, spitted on a ramrod and roasting over a fence rail fire. The boys were hungry, too, and they didn't say a word. 'Did you ever see two dogs quarreling over a bone, Dan?' Jim asked at length. 'Yes,' 'Well, pretty soon you may see a bone quarreling over two dogs,' he added. 'And I'll be the bone.' They divided the chicken." Africa's Ancient Sen, Recent studies of the animal life of Lake Tanganyika has shown that that lake differs from all other African lakes in possessing inhabitants fliat belong to oceanic species. Still, those singular denizens of Lake Tanganyika are not exactly like the marine organisms of the present day, and the conclusion is drawn that a sea, connected with the open ocean, once occupied the part of Africa where Tanganyika now lies, and that the lake is the last remnant of the ancient sea. Clearing House Payments Larger Than in 1892, AUTUMN BUSINESS IS BRISK, Complaint!! Jttndft that lit Almost Branch of Commerce There Id a Narrower Margin ot Froftt Than Should Rcasomibly Be fcipcctetl. New York, Oct. 17.—R. O. DmT& Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "With actual payments through clearing houses 19.2 per cent large? than in the same week of 1892, it cannot be said 'that business is in any sense falling off, and yet many are complaining because the amount realized as profit is smaller than was formerly realized in good times. In almost every branch of business trade Is now transacted on a narrower margin of profit than in any other time of fair prosperity. "Failures for tho week were 205 in the United States, against 223 last year, and 25 in Canada, against 36 last year." Bradstreet's says: "At most western centers an improvement in the retail and jobbing trade in seasonable dry goods, clothing and shoes is reported. Wheat, including flour, shipments for the week aggregate 4,729,995 bushels, against 5,397,224 last week. Corn exports aggregate 2,706,292, as against 3,364,710 last week."

Washington, Oct. 17.—In consequence of the recent newspaper statements to the effect that Admiral Sampson was in a bad state of health in Havana and would have to be relieved from further service on the Cuban evacuation commission, Secretary Long sent him a telegram asking as to the truth of the matter.

One is the building at Frederick, Md., which has been used since 1831 as a freight station, and which is still devoted to that purpose. In the little cupola of the building a bell once hung which was always rung on arrival of trains from Baltimore when horses were the motive power of the railroad. The other building ia the station at Mount Clare, Baltimore, and it is noted as being the location of the first telegraph office in the world. It was from this building that Professor Morse sent his celebrated message in 1844 to his friends iu Washington, forty miles away.
