HE advantage to one who writes, not a tale of irnaglna- natlon, but of. simple record of events, is this: He need not be bound by the recognized canons of. the storytelling art — need not exercise his iu- genulty'to rniidead ills reader—need not suppress some things and lay undue stress on others to create mysteries to be cleaved up at the end of the tale. Therefore, using the privilege of a plain narrator, I shall'here give some uccount'of what became of Miss Rowan as, so far as I can remember. I heard it some time afterward from her own lips. The old Scotchwoman's funeral over, Miss ttowan seemed td them A passing Vision of loveliness. But when she was a mile or two from Callendat- she saw a boy oft a pony. The boy, who must have known her by sight, stopped, and handed hef a telegram. She had to pay several ehll- llnge for the delivery, or intended delivery, of the message, so far from the station, the boy galloped away, congratulating himself on having been spared a long ride, and Miss Rowan tore open the envelope left in her -hands. The message was brief: "Mr. Carr is seriously ill. Come flt once. 'You will be met in Londoni',' Madeline did not scream or faint. She gave one low moan of pain, set her teeth, and with the face of one in a dream drove ns quickly t»s she could to Callendar, straight to the railway station. Fortunately, or rather unfortunately, she had money with her, so she did not waste time In going to Mr. Douglas. In spite of the crushing blow she had received, the girl had all her wits about her. A train would start in ten minutes' time. She took her ticket, then found an Idler outside the station, and paid him to take the pony and carriage back to the farm, with the message as repeated to Carriston. The journey passed llko a long dream. The girl could think of nothing but her lover, dying, dying—perhaps dead before she could reach him. Tho miles flew by unnoticed; twilight crept on; tlie carriage grew dark; at last- London at last! Miss Rowan stepped out on the broad platform, not knowing what to do or where to turn. Presently u tall, well-dressed man conic up to her, and removing-Ills -hat, -.iddressed, her toy name. The promise as to her being met had been kept. She clasped her hands. "Toll me— oh, toll me. he is not dead," she cried. "Mr. Can- is not dead. He te .ill- very ill—delirious and calling for you." "Where Is he? Oh, take me to him "' "He is miles and mile* from here— at a friend's house. I have been deputed to meet you and to accompany you, if you feel strong enough to c«7i- tlmie the journey at once." "Come," said Madeline. "Take me to him." • "Your luggage?" asked the geutle- Tuan, • "I have none. COHIO!" "You must take some refreshment." "I need nothing. Come." The gentleman glanced at his watch. "There is just time," he said. He called a cab, told the driver to go at top apee'd.^ They reached Paddington just in time to catch the mall. During the drive across London, Madeline asked many questions, and learnt from her companion that Mr. Carr had been staying for a day or two at a friend's house in the West of notice afty-- wss t» resell nl8F >* * "Aftb^ ffleV* said the cttndtotof r Ing net.

Several k nd V,~diea had offered to come and stay with her, but she had declined the offers. She was In no mood for company and, perhaps, being of such a different race and breed, would not found much comfort In the rough homely sympathy which was offered to her She preferred being alone with her W1 . let _ gr ief which after all was bound to be. much lightened by the thought of her own approaching happiness, for the day was drawing near when her lover would cross the Border and bear his bonnie bride away. She felt sure that she would not be long alone-~ that the moment CarrlBtou heard of her aunt's; death he would come to her assistance, In such a -peaceful God-fearing neighborhood' she had no/rfear of being le£t without protection? Moreover, her po-: sition 4n the hoiise was well-defined. The old woman, who was childless, bad Jeft her niece all of which ahe d.ied possessed. So Madeline decided to wait quietly until she heard from hev lover. Still there were business matters to te attended to, and at the fnneral Mr. Douglas of Callendar, the executor under the' will, had suggested that an •ir'ly interview AVouUl be desirable. He offered to drive out to the little' farm the next day, but Miss Rowan, who had to see to,sq»?e i'eminlne necessaries whlch'couia onffye supplied by shops, decided that ^e'would come to the town instead of troubling Mr. Douglas Madeline, "in spite o£ the superstitious element in her character, was a hvave glvl, iiud, in spite of her rettned style of beauty, strong and healthy. Early hours were the rule in that huw-. 1,lo home, so before seven o'clock in {ho morning she was ready to start on her drive to the little town.

He had been continually calling for Madeline. They had found her address on a letter, and had telegraphed as soon as possible—for which act MJss Rowan thanked her companion with tears in her eyes. Her conductor did not say much of his own accord, but in replying to her questions he was politely sympathetic. She thought of little outside the* fearful picture which filled every corner of her brain; but from her. conductor's manner received the impression that he was a medical adviser who bad seep the sufferer, and assisted in the treatment of the case. She did not ask his name, nor did he reveal it. At Paddington he placed her in a ladles' carriage and left her. He was a srooker, he said. She wondered somewhat a-t this desertion. Then the train aped down west. At the large stations the gentleman came to her and offered her refreshments. Hunger seemed to have left her, but she accepted a cup of tea once or. twice. At last sorrow, fatigue, and the weakness produced by such a bad their natural effect. "With the tears still on her lashes, the girl fell asleep, and must hMo slept for many mile?; a sleep unbroken by stoppages at stations. Her conductor at last aroused her. He stood at the door of the carriage, "We must get out here," ho said. All the momentarily forgotten anguish came back to hey as she stood beside him on the almost unoccupied platform. '.,',' "Avo we there at last?" she asked. "I am sorry to say we have stllj a long ride; \vould you like to rest first?" "No—np.- "Cproe on, if you pleaee." She spoke with feverish eagerness. The man bowed. "A carriage waits," he said. , Outside the station was a carriage of some sort, drawn by one horse, and driven by a man muflied up to the eyes. It was still night, but Madeline fancied dawn could not be far off. Hey conductor opened the door of the carriage and waited for her to enter. She paused. "Ask him—that man must know if—" "I am most remise," saUl the gentle man.

He was the thin- lipped, gentlemanly person whom I bad| met on my journey to Bournemouth last spring—the man who had seemed so much impressed by my views on Insanity, and had manifested such inter-, est in the description I had given— without mentioning any name—of Car?, riston's peculiar mind. < ' ^ I should have at once claimed ac* quointanceship. with my visitor; but before I could speak he advanced,! and apologlzed'gracefullyjfor-hlB,inttilslon," "You will- forgive it," he added,' "when I tell you my. name is Ralph Carriston." ,' ', Remembering our chance conversa-, tionrthe'thdnght that, after all, Charles ' Carriston's wild suspicion was well founded, flashed through me like lightning. My great hppe , was that my visitor might not remember my fase as, I remembered his. I bowed coldly, but said nothing. "I believe, Dr. Brand," he continued, "you have a young relative of mine at' present staying with you?" "Yes, Mr. Carriston is my guest," I answered. "We are old friends." "Ah, I did not know that. I do not remember having heard him mention your name as a friend. But, as it Is so, no one knows better than you do the unfortunate state of his health. How do you find him to-day—violent?" I pretended to ignore the man's meaning, and answered smilingly, "Violence is the last thing I should look for He is tired out and exhausted by travel, and is in great distress. That I believe, is the whole of his conv- plaint." ' "Yes, yes, to be sure, poor boy. His sweetheart has left him or something. But as a doctor you must know that his mental condition Is not quite what it should he. Hie friends are very anxious about him. They fear that a little restraint—temporary, I hope—must be put upon his actions. I_ called in to ask your advice and aid." "In what, Mr. Carriston?" "In this. A young man can't be left free to go about threatening his friends' lives. I • have brought Dr. Daley with me—you know him, of course. He is below in my carriage, I will call him up with your permission. He could then see poo? Charles, and the needful certificate could bo sigped ; by you .two doctors." "Mr. Carriston," I snld, decidedly, "let me tell you in the plainest words that your cousin is at present as fully, in possession of his wits as you are. Dr. Daley—whoever he may be—could sign no certificate, and in our day no asylum would dare to keep Mr. CorrU. ton within its walls." ITQ.HB vsi w A WONDERFUL EFFECT.
