wifl fa§ *y R D«ck In A flay 6r tftA. young men. But 1 .fotmd that the duchess did ftot share the belief that Van Tree had gone hotm-, for in the course of the morning she took occasion, v?hen We were alone, to charge mo to b& careful not to come into collision With him. "HoW can f, now he has gone?" I said meekly, feeling t was In disgrace. "He has not gone far," replied the duchess ineaningly. "Depend upon it, he will not go fat out of sight unless there is mote harm done than I think or ho Is very different from English lovers. But If you come across him I pray you to keep clear of him, Master Francis." t nodded assent. But of what Weight are resolutions, With fate In the other scale? It Was some hours after this, toward 3 o'clock indeed, When Mistress Anno came to mo, looking flurried and vexed, "Have you seen Dymphtta?" she asked abruptly. "No," 1 answered. "Why?" "Because she is not in the house," the girl answered, speaking quickly, "nor in the garden, and the last timo I saw hei she Was crossing the island toward the footbridge. 1 think she has gone that Way to be on tho lookout—you can guess fol whom," With a smile, "but I am fearful lest she shall meet some one else, Mnstel Francis. She is Wearing her gold chain, and ono of the mnids says that she saw two of tho Spanish garrison on tho road near the end of the footbridge this morning. That is the Way by land to Arnheim, you knoW." "That is bad," I said. "What is to be done?" "You must go and look for her," Anne suggested. "Sho should not bo alone." "Let her father go or Master Bertie," 1 answered. "Her father has gone down tho rivet to Arnheim, I expect, and Master Bertie is fishing in a boat somewhere. It Will take timo to find him. Why cannot you go? If sho has crossed tho footbridge, she will not bo far away." Sho seemed so anxious r.s sho spo'te for tho Dutch girl's safety that sho iiucctod mo with her fears, and I lot myself bo persuaded. After all, there might bo danger, and I did not seo what clso was to ba done. Indeed Mistress Anno did not leave mo until sho had seen mo clear of the orchard and half across tho meadows toward the footbridge. "Mind you bring her back," sho cried after me. "Do not let her como alone!" And those were her last words. After wo had separated I did not think for a moment that it was a pity I had not uskcd her to como with mo. But the thought occurred too lato, and I strode on toward tho head of the bridge, resolving that as soon as I had sighted Dymphna I would keep away from her and content myself with watching over her from a distance. As I passed by the little cluster of cottages on tho landward side of tho island I glanced sharply about me, for I thought it not unlikely that Master Van Tree might bo lurking in the neighborhood. But I saw nothing either of her or him. All was quiet, the air full of spring sunshine and warmth and hope and tho blossoms of fruit trees, and with an indefinable pleasure, a fooling of escape from control and restraint, I crossed the long footbridge and sot foot almost for the first time since our arrival—for at Master Lindstrom's desire we had kept very close —on the river bank. To the right a fuir road or causeway v along tho waterside led to Arnheim. At the point where I stood this road on its way:from the"city took a turn at right angles, running straight away from tho river to avoid a wide track of swamp and mere which lay on my left, a quaking marsh many miles round, overgrown with tajl rushes and sedges, which formed tho head of tho bay in which our island lay. I looked up tho long, straight road to Arnheim and saw only a group of travelers moving slowly along it, their backs toward me. The road before me was bare of passengers. Whore, then, was Dymphna, if she had crossed the bridge? In the last resort I scanned the green expanse of rushes and willows which stretched, with intervals of open water, as far as the eye could "reach on my left. It was all rustling and shimmering in the light breeze, but my eye picked out one or two raised dikes which penetrated it hero and there and served at onco as pathways to islets in the mere and as breastworks against further encroachments of tho river. Presently on one of these, of which the course was fairly defined by a line of willows, I made out tho flutter of a woman's hood, and I remembered that tho day before I had heard Dymphna express a wish to go to tho marsh for some herb which grew there. "Right!" I said, seating myself with much satisfaction on the last post of the bridge. "She is safe enough there! And I will go no nearer. It is only on the road she is likely to bo in danger from our Spanish gallants!" ' My eyes, released from duty, wandered idly over tho landscape for awhile, but presently,returned-to the dike across tho mere. I could not now see Dymphna. The willows hid her, and I waited for he? to reappear, She did not, but some one else did, for by and by, on, tho same path and crossing an interval between the willows, there came into sight a man's form. "Ho, bo," I said, following it with my eyes, "so I may go hpmel Master Vaja Tree is on the track, and now J hope they Will make it up," I added pettishly, Another second, and J started up with a low cry. The sunlight had caught a part of the man's dress, a shining something which flashed back a point of in» tense light. The something J guessed at once was » corselet, and it needed scarpe another thought to apprise me that Dymphna's follower was not Van Tree at aJJ, but a Spanish soldier! I lost no time, yet it tool? me o minute rwti minute of trembling haste and anxiety<—to discover the path from the pause' way on t9 the dike. When once J, had stumbled on to the H^ter, J found ,1 had lost'"sight o? both flpww hut J r.&9 along at the top of my spepd; calculating, that > the two, wboooyia »gt,-"beiap apfJt, the being the newer- Jo we/ were about« , of a mile or rather more from the r'oad, J had gone one-half of this distance perhaps when » shrill scream in ftont paused jne to redouble my efforts.

Par his faatheftd bonnet In the slight Straggle which h&d evidently taken place when she got by him, and it lay ft black spot ifi the middle of the grassy avenue behind him. The enn—it Was about three hours after noon—was at my back and shining directly into his eyes, and 1 marked this as 1 raised my cudgel and jumped asldo to lot tlio girl pass, for she in her blind fear would hnve run against me. It was almost tho snmb With him. Ho did not ECO mo until 1 was Within a few paces of him, and even then 1 think ho noticed my presence merely as that of an unwelcome spectator. He fancied 1 should Step aside, and ho cursed mo, calling mo a Dutch dog for getting in his Way. Tho next moment—ho had not drawn his sWord nor made any attempt to draw It—wo camo together violently, and 1 had my hand on his throat. We swayed as wo Whirled found oho another in the first shock of the collision. A cry of astonishment escaped him—astonishment at my hardihood. Ho tried, his eyes glaring into mine and his hot breath on my cheek, to get at his dagger, but it Was too late. I brought down my staff. With all tho strength of an arm nerved at tho moment by rage and despair, npoli his bare head. Ho went down like a stone, ahd tho blood bubbled from his lips. 1 stood over him watching him. Ho stretched himself out and turned with n convulsive movement on his face. His hands clawed the grass. His leg moved once, twice, a third timo faintly. Then ho lay still. There Was a lark singing just over my head, and its clear notes scorned during the long, long minute While I stood bend- "Fes, J have Hilled him," I answered. ing over him in an awful fascination to bo tho only sounds In nature. I looked so long at'him In that dreadful stillness and absorption I dared not at last look up lest I should see I knew not what, yet when a touch fell on my arm I did not start. "You havo killed him!" tho girl whispered, shuddering. "Yes, I have killed him," I answered mechanically. I could not take my eyes off him. It was not as if I had done this thing after a long conflict, or in a meleo with others flghting round mo, or on tho battlefield. I should have felt no horror then such as I felt now, standing over him in tho sunshine, with the lark's song in my oars. It had happened so quickly, and tho waste about us was so still, and I had never killed a man before nor scon a man die. "Oh, como away!" 'Dymphna wailed suddenly. "Como away!" I turned then, and the sight of tho girl's wan face and strained eyes recalled me in some degree to myself. I saw she was ill, and hastily I gave her my arm and partly carried, partly supported, her back to tho road. The way seemed long, and I looked behind mo often, but we reached tho causeway tit last, and there in tho open I felt som&relief••;• Yet even then, stopping, to. cast n backward glnnco at tho marsh, I shuddered anew, espying a. bright white spark gleaming amid the green of tljo rushes. It was tho dead man's corselet. But if it had been his eye I could scarcely have shrunk from it'iu greater dread. It will be imagined that wo were not long in crossing the island. Naturally I was full of whut had happened and never gave a thought to Van Tree's jealousy or the incidents of his short visit. I had indeed forgotten his existence until we reached the porch. There, entering rapidly, with Dymphna clinging to my arm, I was so oblivious of other matters that when tho young Dutchman rose suddenly from tho seat on one sido of tho door and at the same moment tho duchess rose from the bench on tho other I did not understand in the first instant of surprise what was tho matter, though I lot Dymphna's hand fall from my arm. The dark scowling face of the one, however, and the anger and chagrin written on the features of the other, as they both glared at us, brought all back to mo in a flash. But it was too late. Before I could utter a word the girl's lover pushed by mo with a fierce gesture and fiercer cry and disappeared round a corner of the house, "Was ever such folly!" cried the duchess, stamping her foob and standing before us, her face crimson, "Orsuoh fools! You idiot! You"— "Hush, madam," I said sternly. Had I really grown older in doing the deed? "Something has happened." And Dymphna, with a low cry of "The Spaniard! Tho Spaniard!" tottered up to her and fainted in her arms, CHAPTER ,5:. "This is a serious matter," said Master Bertie thoughtfully as wo satin conclave an hour later round the table in the parlor, Mistress Anne was attending to Dymphna up stairs, and Van Tree had not returned again, so that we had been unable to tell him of the morning's adventure. But the rest of us woro ,there. "It considerably adds to tho danger of our position," Bertie continued, "Of course it does," his wife said promptly. "But Master Wudstrom here can best judge of that and of what course it will be safest to take." "It depends," our host answered slowly, "upon whether tho dead man be discover' ed before night. You see, if the body be not found"— "Weil?" said my Iftdy impatiently as he paused, , \ ^ "Then we musk eowe of us, go after &»rk,RB4 ^»yy him," hedeoi4ea.- "And perhaps, though be. will be missed gt ^e foest roll pa]i in the pity, his death msy not he proved pr traced to this neighbor' hopd, In that case the storm will blow pvor and things be np worse than befpre." "I |ew there Js no iikelihopqi of that, 1 ' J eaHl, "(<» I flifl tPl4 he h&4 a porapaw' ipn- Pno pj th? ra04s noticed them lurk' ing aUont the end p| the bridge more then this jnpwing- " boat's !a,oe foJJ, . looking at } ne tQl4 , f the tp}4 he*.

Master Lindstrom resumed when ho had regained his composure. "Thanks to heaven and your friend, madam! Small matter now if house and lands go!" "Still let us hope they will not," Master Bertie said. "Do you think those mis- oroants were Watching tho island on our account; that some information had been given as to our presence, and they were sent to learn What they could?" "No, no!" tho Dutchman answered confidently. "It was tho sight of the girl and her gewgaws yesterday brought them— tho villains! Thero is nothing safe from them and nothing sacred to them. They saw her as they passed up in the boat, you remember." "But, then, supposing the worst to como to tho worst?" "Wo must escape across tho frontier to Wesel, in the duchy of Clotes," replied Lindstroln in n matter of fact tone, as if ho had long considered and settled the point. "The distance is not great, and in Wesol wo may find shelter, at any rate for a time. Even there, if pressure bo brought to bear upon tho government to give us up, I would not trust it, yet for a tiino it may do." "And you would Icavo all this?" tho duchess said in wonder, her eyes traveling round the room, so clean and warm and comfortable, and settling at length upon tho great armoiro of plate, which happened to be opposite to her. "You would leave all this at a moment's notice?" "Yes, madam, all wo could not carry with us, "ho answered simply. "Honor and life—theso come flrst. And I thank heaven that I live hero within reach of a foreign soil and not in tho interior, where escape would bo hopeless." "But if tho true facts woro known," tho duchess urged, "would you still bo in danger? Would not tho magistrates protect you? Tho schout and schopen, as you call them? They arc Dutchmen." "Against a Spanish governor nnd a Spanish garrison?" ho replied, with emphasis. "Aye, they would protect mo as ono sheep protects another against tho wolves. No! I dare not risk it. Were I in prison, what would become of Dymphna?" "Master Van Tree?" "Ho has tho will to shelter hot, no doubt, and his father has influence, but such as mine—a broken reed to trust to. Then Dymphna is not all. Onco in prison, whatever tho charge, there would bo questioning about religion perhaps," with a faint smile, "questioning about my guests.'' "I suppose you know best," said tho duchess, with a sigh. "But I hope the worst will not come to tho worst." "Amen to that!" he answered quite cheerfully. Indeed it was strange that wo seemed to feel more sorrow at tho prospect of leaving this haven of a few weeks than our host of quitting the homo of a lifetime. But tho necessity had come upon us suddenly, while ho had contemplated it for years. So much fear and humiliation had mingled with his enjoyment of his choicest possessions that this long expected moment brought with it a feeling akin to relief. , For myself, I had a present trouble that outweighed any calamity of tomorrow. Perforce, sinco I alono knew tho spot where the man lay, I must bo ono of tho burying party. My nerves had not recovered from tho blow which tho sight of tho Spaniard lying dead at my feet had dealt them, so short a timo before, and I shrank with a natural repulsion from the task before mo. Yet there was no escaping it, no ohanco of escaping it, I saw. None the loss, throughout the silent meal to which we four sat down together, neither the girls nor Van Tree appearing, were my thoughts taken up with the business which was to follow. I heard our host, who was to go with mo, explaining that there was a waterway right up to the dike, and that we would go by boat, and heard him with apnthy. What matter how wo went, if such were the object of our journey? I wondered how tho man's face would look when we came to turn him over and pictured it in all ghastliest shapes. I wondered whether I should e^ft forget tho strange spasmodic twitching of his leg, the gurgle—half oath, half cry— which had come with the blood from his throat. When Liudstrom said tho moon was up and bade me come with him to bridge nnd jast In th& shadow of the causeway. I sprang ashora and clambered tp. "Hist!" he efled, warning me 68 I was about to start on my erf and. "Go about It quietly, Master Francis. The people Will probably be In bed. But bo secret.'' I nodded and moved off as warily as he could dcsiro. I spent a minute or two peering about tho causeway, but I found nothing that would servo our purpose. There Was no course left then but to cross the planks nnd seek what 1 wanted in the hamlet. Remembering hoW tho timbers had creaked and clattered when 1 Went over them in tho daylight, 1 stole across on tiptoo. I fancied 1 had seen a pile of stones near one of tho posts at that end, but I could not flnd them now, and after groping about awhile—for this part was at tho moment in darkness—I crept cautiously past the flrst hovel, peering to right and left ns I wont. I did not like to Confess to myself that I was afraid to bo alone in the dark, but that was nearly the truth. I was feverishly anxious to find what I wanted nncl return to my companion. Suddenly I paused and held my breath. A slight sound had fallen on my cars, nervously ready to catch tho slightest. I paused and listened. Yes, there it Was again—a whispering of cautious voices close by me, within a few feet of me. I could see no one, but a moment's thought told mo that the speakers were hidden by tho farther corner of tho cottage abreast of which I stood. Tho sound of human voices, tho assurance of living companionship, steadied my nerves and to some extent rid mo of my folly. I took a step to one sido, so as to bo more completely in tho shadow cast by the reed thatched eaves, and then softly advanced until I commanded a view of tho whisperers. They were two—a man and tv woman— and tho woman was of all people Dymphna! Sho had her back to mo, but she stood in tho moonlight, and I know her hood in a moment. Tho man—surely the man was Van Tree, then, if tho woman was Dymphna? I stared. I felt sure it must bo Van Tree. It was wonderful enough that Dymphna should so far have regained nervo and composure as to ru.r and como out to meet him. , But in that case her conduct, though strange, was explicable. If not, however, if tho man were not Van Tree— Well, ho certainly was not. Staro as I might, rub my eyes as I might, I could not alter the man's figure, which was of tho tallest, whereas I havo said that the young Dutchman was short. This man's face, too, though it was obscured as he bent over the girl by his cloak, which was pulled high up about his throat, was swarthy—swarthy and beardless; I made 1895 itnra, Su, 30 Mo, 3 10 1? 24 Til. 11 18 25 We. 5 12 19 26 Th. 6 13 20 2? 7 14 21 miMMAftt Ol'WKBW fflfflft LOOKS LIKE LAMONt. the Secretary of War May Get the State Department Portfolio. WASHINGTON, June 3.—If there were a safe Democratic majority in the senate after the 1st of December next the vacant portfolio of state would undoubtedly go to Senator Gray of Delaware, or to Senator Vilas, who is, next to the Delaware senator, the strongest champion of the administration who might look for the appointment. If Senator Gray, who is a member of the committee on foreign affairs of the senate, is not named, the administration gossips say that Secretary Daniel S. Lamont will be transferred to the state department, and a Western man will succeed him. at the head of the war department. Larnont is the Closest to Cleveland of any man in Washington, He is the personal adviser of the president, and his counsels are the most sough' at the White Houss on all matters in which the administration is concerned. By some itls suggested that with Lamout at the head of the department of state the coming diplomatic contests with. Great Britain, on the Behriug sea question, the Venezuelan boundary question, the Hawaiian matter and our complicated situation with Spain in relation to Cuba will be adjudicated along American lines and with a very firm stand for the maintenance of the Monroe doctrine. 2S.

What did it mean? On what strange combination had I lit? Dymphna and a Spaniard! Impossible! Yet. a thousand doubts and thoughts ran riot in my brain; a thousand conjectures jostled ono another to got uppermost. What was I to dof What ought I to do? Go nearer to them, as near as possible, and listen and learn tho truth, or steal back tho way I had como and fetch Master Llndstrom? But, flrst, was it certain that the girl was there of her own free will? Yes; tho question was answered as soon as put. Tho man laid his hand gently-on her shoulder. She did not draw back. Confident of this, and consequently of Dymphna's bodily safety, I hesitated and was beginning to consider whether the best course might not bo to withdraw and say nothing, leaving the question of future proceedings to be decided after I hod spoken to her on the morrow, when a movement diverted my thoughts. The man at last raised his head. Tho moonlight fell cold and bright on his face, displaying every feature as clearly as if it had been day, and though I had only onco seon his face before I knew it again. And know him! In a second I was back in England, looking on a far different scene. I saw tho Thames, its ebb tide rippling in tho sunshine as it ripples past Greenwich, and a small boat gliding over ic, an£ a man in tho bow of the boat, a man with a grim lip and a sinister eye.

CLEVELAND, June 1.—No man stands closer to Governor McKinley or is more interested in his candidacy for the presidency than Hon. M. A. Hauna of this city. Speaking to an Associated Press representative concerning the speculation as to the effect of the Foraker victory in the state Republican convention upon McKiuley's prospects, he said: "They will not be affected in the least. Governor McKinley has more friends in Ohio now than he ever had before, and he has more in all the other states of the Union. This talk about a divided Ohio delegation in the national Republican convention is all bosh. More than, that, it is all a lie. -• The Republicans in this state are true to Me- Kiuley, or tlieir convention platform is a farce. Dp you suppose a state that holds so proud a place as Ohio can afford to be false? Ohio will send a solid and loyal McKinley delegation to the national convention."
