"1, too, cannot go home." And R&l said this Mistress Ber- tfanl also • came'Up, and 1 took her hand in mine—which ilooked, by the way, so •strangely thin 1 scarcely recognized it— .find kissed it. "I will come with you, madam, if you will let me," I said. "Good!" She replied, her eyes sparkling. "I:soid you would! 1 do not mind telling you now that 1 am glad of it. And If ever weieturn .to England, ns God grant wo may, attdfsoon, you shall not regret your decision. Shall.he, Richard?" "If 'you sayihe shall not, my dear," he responded, stalling at her enthusiasm, "I think 1 may answer for it ho Will not." I was-struck then,.as 1 had been before, by .a .certain air <of deference which tho husband.assumed-.toward the wife. It did .not.surprise me, for her bearing and manner, as'Woll as such of her actions as Iliad seen, :Btamped:hor as singularly self reliant' and.independent'forawoman, and to these qualitles,ias:much as to tho rather dreamy character.of itho husband, I was content to set down the peculiarity. I should add tbat.n .rare and pretty tenderness constantly displayed oil her part toward him robbed it.of any semblance of unseemliness. They saw that the exertion of talking .exhausted .me, ,and so, with an eiicourog- jngnod, Jcffeme;to 7iiyself. A few minutes latcr-a couple of English sailors belonging to the Framllngham camo up and with gentle strength transported me, under Mistress Anno's directions, to a queer looking wide beamed boat which lay al- most:alougsido. Sho was more like a huge Thames ibnrgo than anything else, for she drew little <wator, but had a great expanse of sail \whcn all was sot. There was n large idedkhouse, ,gay with paint and as clean,as lit <oould :be, .and in a conipart- rthis, which seemed to •be assigned ttoiouriparty, I was soon comfortably settled. Exhausted,as I \wasby the excitement •of .sitting ,u,p rand :boing moved, I knew little«^whatpassed:aboutmo for tho next two idoys ;and .remember less. I slept and .ato and isomotlmesawoko to wonder where I was. But itho meals and tho vague attempts -at -thought made scarcely more impression on any 'mind than tho sleep. Yet all tho while I\was gaining strength rapidly, my .youth .and :health standing mo in good stead.

AM was .open, tfoeo; all was largeness, space and distance. I gazed astonished. The husband and \wife, who were pacing the deck forward, came to me. He noticed the wondering looks I cast round. '*This i« mewto y,ou?" he said, smiling. "Quite, quite new," I answered. "I never imagined anything so flat and yet , in its way so beautiful." "You do not know Llncoljashd-re 1 ?" "No." "Ah, that is-my native county.," he answered. "It is much like this. But you are better, and you can talk again. Now, I and my wife havo been discussing whether we shall tell you more about ourselves. And, since there is no time liko the present, I may say that wo .have decided to trust you." "All in all or not at all," Mistress Ber-, tram added brightly. ."•.•' • I murmured my thanks. "Then, first, to tell you who we are. For , ielf, I am plain Richard Bertie of Lin- 'Qf colnshire, at your service. My wife is more than appears from this, one tie, tho enmity ot th6 eahre fnan. "He is a man to be dreaded," the dtich- esS continued, he* eyes resting on her baby, which lay asleep on my bundle of rugs, and 1 guessed what feat it was had tamed her pi-ido to flight. "His power in England Is absolute. Wo learned thnt it was his purpose to arrest mo r#id determiTied to leave England. But our **.ry household wns full of spies, and though we chose n time when Clarence, our steward, whom wo had long suspected of being Gardiner's chief tool, was away* Philip, his deputy, gained a clew to bur design and watched us. We gave him the slip with difficult?, leaving our luggage, but ho dogged and overtook us, and tho rest you know." 1 bowed. As 1 gazed nt he* my admiration, 1 know, shone in my eyes. She looked, ns she stood oil the deck, an exile and fugitive, eo gay, eo bright, so indomitable, that in herself she was at once a warranty and an oineii of better times. Tho brcezo had heightened her color and loosened here and there a tress of her auburn hair. No wonder Master Befctie looked proudly on his duchess. Suddenly a thing I had clean forgotten flashed into my inind, and I thrust my hand into my pocket. Tho action was so abrupt that it attracted their attention, and When 1 pulled out a jpacfcot—two pack- ets—thoro Were three pairs of «ycs upon mo. Tho seal dangled from one missive. "What have you there?" theduchess asked briskly, for sho was a woman .and curious. "Do you carry the deeds of you* property about with you?" "No," I said, not unwilling to make a small sensation. "This touches your grace." "Hushl" sho cried, xaising ono imperious linger. "Transgressing already? From this timo forth I ran Mistress Bertram, remember. But come," sho went on, eying tho packet with tho .seal acquisitively, "how does it touch me?" I put it silently into her bands, and she opened It and scad ,a few Hues, her husband peeping over iher shoulder. As sho read her brow darkened, her eyes grow hard. Master Bertie's ifaoo changed with hers, and they both peeped suddenly at mo over tho edge of tho parchment, suspicion and hostility to *hclT glances. "How camo you iby this, .young sir?" ho said slowly, alter a long pause. "Have wu escaped Peter to fall tato the ihands of Paul?" "No, no!" I cried fcurriedHy. I saw that I had made a greater sensation than I had bargained for. I hastened to tell them how I had met with 'Gardiner's .servant at Stony Stratford, and ibow I Ihad become possessed of his credentials. 'They laughed, of course. Indeed they lau&bed so loudly that tho placid Dutchmen, standing nft with their hands in theii brooches pockets, stared open mouthed at us, and tho kindred cattle on the bank Ioo3aed mildly up, from tho knee deep glass. "And what was the oilier packet?" the duchess asked presently. "Is that it in your hand?" "Yes," I answered, holding ±t up with some reluctance. "It seems to be n letter addressed to Mistress darcnae." "Claronco!" she cried. "(Clarence!" resting tho hand, she TOW .extending. "What! Here is onr friend again, then. What is in it? You tiara opened it?'" "No." "You have not? Then (quick, open it!" sho exclaimed. "This, too, touches,us, I will bet a'penny. Let us ; see at .on.oo what it contains. Clarence indeed.! Perhaps wo may have him on the hip, itibe arch traitor!" But I held the pocketbook back, though my cheeks reddened, and I Jmew I must seem foolish. They made certain that this letter was a communication to .some spy, probably to Clarence himself under cover of a feminine address. Perhaps It was, but it bore a woman's name, and dt was sealed, and, foolish though I anight be, I would not betray the woman's secret. "No, madam," I said, confused, awkward, stammering, . yet withholding it with a secret obstinacy. "Pardon me if I do not obey you—if I do not let this be she Was 111 ^nd" excited^ and 1 fftaoled Was best to humor her. "Well, perhaps I shall," I eald Soothingly "Possibly. It Is hard to refuse her Anything, and yet I hojjo 1 may not. The girl—it may be a girl's secret." '•Well?" she asked, interrupting me abruptly, her toicc harsh and unmusical. "What of her?" Sho laid her hand on her bosom as though to still some secret pain. I looked at her, anxious and wondering, but she had again averted her face. ' • What of her?" she repeated. "Only that—1 would not willingly hurt bor!" I blurted out. Sho did not answer. Sho stood n moment; then, to my surprise, she turned hway without a Word, and merely commanding mo by a gesture of tho hand hot to follow walked slowly awny. 1 watched her cross tho deck and pass through tho iloorway into tho deckhouse. She did not once turn her face, and iny only fear was that sho Was ill, more seriously ill, perhaps, than she had acknowledged. [CONTINUED.] RAGIN3 IN tH£ WOODS NORTHERN WISCONSIN. LUCK, NOT SKILL.

L. Do Witt .of Philadelphia. "1 used to bo on tho police force myself, and I had ono or two just such experiences. I remember one instance very distinctly when I was complimented by my captain tor my prowess in capturing ft thief, where, had it not been that the man actually throw his plunder on mo while- I was asleep, thereby •waking me up, I never would have known that anything was wrong. Tho beat I walked at that time was on tho outskirts of tho city, and there had been a good many complaints entered by tho residents in that locality that their chickens wore being stolen. I had tried to catch the thief, but had so far been unsuccessful. Ono night, feeling pretty tired, I walked around to tho rear of ft houso and seated myself on ft log that rested against the back yard fence. "As I said before, I was pretty tired and had not been seated thoro long beforo I fell fast asleep. I had not been asleep very long beforo I was awakened by a heavy bundle falling on me, and storting up was a good deal startled at first at hearing a scrambling noiso on tho fence top right above mo, and tho next rainuto a big nefcro appeared on tho top, and without even taking a look below him dropped virtually into my arms. A more surprised man than he when ho discovered me you never saw. I at onoo placed him under arrest, and picking up tho bundle that had so rudely broken my slumbers found it to bo a sack filled with chickens, which the negro had just stolen. Ho hod wrung their necks, placed them in tho bag and then throw it over the fence, intending to get it when ho climbed over himself. I took him to the station, and he, thinking I knew all about him and had liocu watching him, made ft clean breast of tho matter and confessed that ho had been the ono who had committed all tho former depredations. I of course made n good case against him and got a good deal of crodit for my smooth detective work, which I bore •with becoming meekness.'"—St. Louis 'Globo-Democrat. rtn<:h fine Bntnett In the iron ftlver toli- triet—South Sliote f rftift* Dfciftjred by the fintning ot ±le§ trade* the track, flame* Fanned by ft firisfc fcreeze. Wssr SUPERIOR, Wis., May 2 1 ?.Reports were received here during the evening that disastrous forest fires have raged all day in some of the heavy wooded districts of Northern Wisconsin. On the Dulnth, South Shore and Atlantic road fires broke out early in the morning at several points and spread rapidly, consuming much valuable pine. Near Iron tUver, 60 miles east of here, the fires were particularly destructive. One hundred carloads of tiles and four boxcars owned by the Northern Pacific road were rartialla destroyed. The northbound South Shore limited was delayed about four hours by the burning of ties under the track. The train crew reported the heat from the flatties almost unbearable and that the cars were fired by sparks and narrowly escaped burning. A stiff breeze blew all day and the smouldering fires, which had b«en partly extinguished by heavy rain, were again fanned into roaring masses of fire. KNOCKS OUT REVENUE TAXES.

At that her husband smiled, and I looked in despair from him to Mistress Anna Would sho sympathize with my feelings? I found that she had turned her back on us and was gazing over tho side. "Do you really mean," continued the, duchess, tapping her "foot sharply on the deck, "that you are not going to open that, you foolish boy?" "I do, with your grace's leave," I answered. "Or without my grace's leave! Time is what you mean," she retorted pettishly, a red spot in each cheek. "When people will not do what I ask, it is always grace! grace! grace! But I know them now." I dared not smile, and I would not>look up, lost my heart should fail me and I should give her her way. "You foolish boy!" sho again said and sniffed. Then with a toss of her head she went away, her husband following her obediently. I feared that she-was grievously offended, and I got up restlessly and went across tho deck to tho rail on which Mistress Anne was leaning, meaning to say some-, thing which should gain for mo her sympathy, perhaps her advice. But the words died on my lips, for as I approached she tnrned her face abruptly toward me, and it was so white, so haggard, so drawn, that I uttered n cry of alarm. "You are iljl" I exclaimed, "Let me call the duchess!" Sho gripped roy sleeve almost fiercely, "Hush!" she muttered. "Do nothing of the kind. I am not well. It is the water. But it will pass off, if ypu dp not notice it. I bate to be nptioed," she added, with an angry shrug. I was full of pity for her and reproached jnysej? sorely, "What a selfish brute I bave been!"

Shortly before ono Christmas tho holiday shoppers in a largo ,city grocery witnessed a little transaction which set them thinking- A sleigh camo jingling up to the door, •drawn by a pair of handsome horses, and with a coachman and footman on tho box. A lady buried in warm furs was handed out .and entered the store, humming with Christinas activity. Going to tho tea counter, sho called for a pound of cheap tea. Tho clerk looked up doubtfully, as if to ask whether ho had understood her correctly. "Itffi for a poor person in the country," tho lady answered. "She would never nor tico any difference." Hardly had tho little parcel been tied when a rather shabbily dressed man, with his coat collar up and his hands blue with cold, stepped up to tho same clerk. "I want a pound of tho best ton, in this establishment," ho said. "It's for a poor thing down in the country. Sho probably never;tasted anything real 1 nioo in'all her life, but I want licr to have some this Christmas.'' Tho clerk said nothing ns ho dived into tho tea canister, and tho woman said nothing as sho passed out of tho door, but it is to be hoped that the unconsciously given lesson took effect.—Youth's Companion. Incouio Ta« DecUlon Said to Have That Eltect. KNOXVILLE, Tenn., May 25.— The startling announcement is made by Colonel Noble Smithson, a Knoxville attorney who has had much practice before the United States supreme court, that the decision of the court on the income tax has also killed the internal revenue laws. In a carefully prepared opinion, Colonel Smithson says: "Justice Fuller in his opinion says: •The constitution divides federal taxation into two classes—First, direct taxes; second, imposts and excises,' and •that direct taxes must be apportioned among the several states in proportion to their representation in the house of representatives.' "Apparently the logical result of this opinion is that all federal taxes, except duties of import (that is to say taxes collected under the tariff law's) must be apportioned among the states According to Their Representation in the house of representatives. The act of Aug. 27, 1894, (the Wilson bill) section 48, provides 'There shall be levied and collected on all distilled spirits, etc., a tax of $1.10 on each proof gallon.' "The statutes of the United States levy a tax of 0 cents per pound on tobacco, etc. It seems clear that according to this" opinion of Chief, Justice Fuller these are direct taxes on personal property, and not :being -proportioned among the several states according to representation, they are unconstitutional and void. If this view, be correct, the supreme court has not only wiped out the income tax, but has practically repealed the internal revenue laws, as it affects tobacco, whisky, brandy, etc." Opstiad KctefrtfttlAti Obtted Sftatitieft 6f MftfUeSteaders. AttMofR, S. t)., May 25.-the opening of the Yankton reservation at noon was not characterized by the formality and discipline heretofore attending the opening of vast bodies of Indian land. The fact that sooners were not presented from going upon the land prior to the hour when lawful settlement could be made rendered the settlement Of this reservation a sort of free-for-all. In addition to those who had taken possession of claims during the past few weeks other sooners had been quietly going upon the reservation during the past 24 b ours, while scores awaited the hour when the reservation was declared lawfully opened. The newly opened land is now dotted with The SiianMes of Homesteaders and preliminary steps toward the cultivation of the land have been commenced. The opening was without conflicts of a serious nature, and was Without question, in this particular, the most orderly opening of Indian lands that ever took place in the West. While the number of homes'- ;aders who have taken lauds on the res rvation is very gratifying, the magnitude of the crowd was not up to expectations. Among people living in the vicinity of the reservation the reason given for this is that too short notice was given in the president's proclamation and that landseekers who do not read the daily papers were not aware that the reservation was to be opened so soon. The land is really valuable and what remains vacant will be speedily taken. SM At the Mitchell Office. MITCHELL. S. D., May 25.—The land office at this point commenced to received filings for land on the Yankton reservation at noon. The first application was that of a young lady. Up to 4 o'clock about 100 soldiers' declaratory statements had been filed. The rush here will soon commence, when the homestead applications will come in. At 7 a. m. a line was formed in front of the land office, but everything was quiet and orderly.' WITH A BIG RUSH. en f*66p» ftfid freefiAAteft lfc«Htiif» the Cotwt Of ftfft*I!< CHICAGO, May 25.—The bears top of the wheat market in great at the opening, and succeeded in ing the price of July to 74%* of cents below the official closing the day before. It went dowii lead of dirt from a dump wagon, *M vhe professional short sellers, Ifrhbtft ught has been dimmed for a month* proceeded to take the crooks out of their bent backs and smile. The Smite had barely time to widen into a grift when the expression began to cn<tnge« and inside of ah hour nothing toot weeping, wailing and gnashing of teetn. was to be heard in the camp of the bears. From 74% at the start, the Jtfke of Jftty shot up to 79%, and itt the same time September rose from 75 to 80 per bushel. Such a Phonomonnl Acfolmtlb feat is without many parallel in the history of the board of trade. There Was no reason for the break of the early morning, except the fact of the rapidity of the advance having led to the exjpec- tatiou of such a general taking of prof* its as did in fact take place then. The professional traders were always ready for the break, had in fact been on the qui vive for it for 10 days, but they were utterly and completely unprepared for the phenomenal change which sent wheat up 5 cents per bushel in an hour After an Initial Drop of 2^c below the closing price of the day before. A statement of B. G-. Dun & Co, in their weekly review of trade' of the country printed in the morning papers, did much to influence holders of getting rid of their wheat. They said that their information in regard to the damage was to the effect that it was not serious, but this was strenuously denied by later reports, which reiterated the statements of previous days. They said that the damage to wheat is not only serious, but even phenomenally so throughout Indiana and Illinois, and somewhat less so in Missouri, while it is equally serious in Kansas. M'KINLEY AND FORAKER. Joseph Choate'a Fee. WASHINGTON, May 24.—Joseph Choate's fee in the income tax cases will go on record as one of the largest ever paid in this country. According to common report among those connected with the litigation Mr. Choate received a retainer of $100,000 to argue the unconstitutionality of the law. The wealthy men of New York agreed to pay Mr. Choate this sum regardless of the result, and to double it if he succeeded in defeating the law. Mr. Choate, therefore, will receive $200,000 for his two arguments before the supreme court. MONEY IN NEW YORK BANKa Fifteen Thousand People Racing: for 450 Claims of Klckapoo Land*. OKLAHOMA CITY, O. T., May 24.— Sharp at noon 15,000 men, with a large number of women, made a grand rush from all sides of the Kicapoo reservation for the 450 odd claims open to settlement. In less than an hour afterward there were scores of contestants on each claim, in addition to the "soouers," who had already taken possession of the lands long coveted by them. . The Kickapoo opening was much in the nature of a huge farce. At 12:10 nearly all claims had from 10 to 20 claimants on them and those farthest from the line were reached from the border in 35 minutes. On one section 100 claimants who had run in from both borders and those who were sooners were congregated. The honest runners combined to drive the sooners off. Several fights occurred, a number of shots were fired and a colored man named Blackford from Oklahoma county, is reported badly wounded. SWIFT VENGEANCE.

Sheriff Thompson denied them admission. The mob procured a telegraph pole and used it as a battering ram. After repeated efforts to break down the outer jail door with the telephone pole, which produced little or 110 effect, foe crowd momentarily desisted in its efforts. Sheriff Thompson, his wife and deputy, also beseeched them to disperse. F. V.

By this time a railroad tie was secured and with three blows the, outer door was battered • in, and the besiegers thronged in. The men were secured and taken to a bridge in the east end of town and hung. The crowd gathered in a livery barn within a block of the jail and marched in a body to the jail.
