0t times
I hod not seen my friend for some time,
wben Iin invitod mo to spend a few day.
witli liiiu at liis pretty villa overlooking
tho Royal gardens at Kew. On thr first
ovening of my visit I sat with him on the
balcony of an upper room.
Close to us wa.s the groat palnYhouae
-Vllmore pointed to ii,
"Whenever 1 lost at that housn, 'he
���aid. "1 think of the events i.i a night that
I spent in It witli a man who would hava
committed a murder hnd I not beeu Instrumental in preventing hlm."
I did what any one else would have dons
���asked Wllmore to toll Ids Btory,
"Don't mind if I do," hu replied, "only
1 must. not. lie too long ahuul It.
"Well, it is almost 25 vr:,:-* sin��� I settled hero near this wonderful garden I
put up ray brass plato nud watted lot patients I oould do this with Utile anxiety,
for 1 had a slight Inooinu to keep mu go.
"There came to Kew about the sniio
time a colonel, bis wife and his daughter.
Apparently they did hot Intend to reside

house by the quarter

Constantly Like myself, they bad nl.,-
tainud a private pa. .1 and used to untoi' by
that iittlo gate opposite lo us. Tbey wero
seldom In tbo gardens when tlie general
pnblie were admitted
"To be candid with ymi, the beauty ot
thu colonel's dauglit..- was to me far mur.o
enchanting than the beauty of tho gardens
Ves, it wa.s a ease of love at first siglit.
"I am not miing to describe I ur except
to say that every man before he reaches
my ngo oxperionoug ihe suit of Intoxication thnt I did ihen. and to him the beauty of the loved object is Incomparable,
"The girl, 1 must tell .vou, was ono of
the most healthy looking girls I have over
teen We doctors know ut a glance where
health has its abode
"1 took u dislike to tho colonel���naturally perhaps, for Iio seemod tu gnnrd his
daughter with exceeding sternness He
disliked me, too, ic was plain I shall
never forget how bo used to watch nie and
frown Though 1 was In lovo, I was not
quite devoid of reason and oould find many
excusos for ihe man's apparent antagonism Doubt loss be wanted a quiet time,
as 1 did     Bosldos, tho colonel might well
havo linagi I at  times that   I followed
them. It bad really readied that stage
wilh tno that I felt despondent whon I
could not seo them, Of tho colonel's wife
I need say little���s! e seemed to be an unusually modest, quiet, even timid, woman.
"For two weeks 1 had to ho absent from
Kew on-business,
"On returning, my first visit was to tho
Hardens���to the rhododendron walk. Thoy
werensplendid sight, nut i ...vr r.ctrnng
of them���I was looking for a face, .lust
ns I reached the opon I saw throo figures
coming from the direction of thu grove of
"1 fancy I betrayed my feollngs a liltle
���I could not help it. 1 wiui shocked, almost, paralyzed, to see the girl, upon
whoso Image every liber of my brain had
dwelt, supported by her mother, pale,
sickly, utterly broken down in health,
"Klio looked at mo���oh, what a pitiful
look I Her eyes wero onnnturnlly large
nnd unnaturally bright. II. r luce had bo-
conio thin; its color had deepened. She
was plainly suffering from somo sort of
slow fovor, a fever that was consuming
her strength little by little.
"Later in the day I wus at thc railway
station, getting some books from Smith's
library 1 saw tho colonel nt the ticket
olllce. He was Inquiring for a ticket, to
Holyhead     Ho did not see mo.
"lt occurred to mv mind uli ntnnoo that
I might nee hia wife nud dnughter by
themselves noxt day Perhaps I should
have a chance to Introduce myself in my
professional capacity That, night I concocted nil sorts of plans. In tho morning
I was in tho gardens early. As tho time
ilrcv," nigh tbat, thoso who I wished to see
arrived I was close to their customary
ga'te. They cnnio somewhat laic, and I
followed them. I felt mean���very mean--
in doing so.
"They mado their way to tho quietest
place in tlm gardens���tho rhododendron
valley. Thoro is a fountain bcsldo the
path to It. Thoy stopped nt It, I saw iiio
elder lady take a*handkorohIef, saturate it
ut tho fountain'and apply lt to tho girl's
forehead as she stood lieiicaih tho arching
rihade of a yew tree, leaning against a
branch of It. Prosontly they proceeded
slowly, 1 following. .orlunntoty Hare
were no others at that early hour to see
int, Tlie two disappeared round a turning luto thc valley. As thoy did SO 1 saw
something white fall. Whob I readied it,
1 found it to bo the handkerchief.
"Well, as I am tolling tlie si,iry, I hail
bei ier tell it. all. 1 put tho handkerchief to
tny lips and kissed it. To my amazement
an odor came from tt thnt I i, .1 Binelled
but unco before and had never forgotten
It was tho odor of the "I hug plain.'
���It was a fortunate thing that. I had
traveled in tho east. While doing so I mi I

carefully None of her duel..rs had ben

Ho was noted among his caste for skill In
curing hy means of herbs. Ho bogged that
ho might see the lady and at last wa.s allowed. Ho entered the room, looked at
her, went nbout. In an amazing manner,

Other things besides mischief, however, bud Silver learu'ed. Chief of these
was to start with tbe jigger. Sleeping
1 or waking, lying or standing, the summons that stirred the men from snoring ease to tense, rapid action neve
fulled to Uud Silver ulert. As tbo he,
tor shank slipped tlirougli the bit ring
Unit same instant found Silver gathered for the rush through tbo long,
narrow lune lending from bis open stall
to tile poles, a'.,.ivo wlllpll, like great
couchant spiders, waited the harnesses
pendent ou lhe hanger rods.
(n.ee uuder the harness Silver was
like a carved statue until lhe trip strap
bud been pulled, tlie eoll.tr fastened
uml tho reins snapped in. Thou he
wanted to poke tlie poles through the
doors, so eager was he to be off. It
was no fault of Silver's that bis teum
could not make n two second bitch,
With the tlrst strain at the traces his
Impatience died our.   a sixty root trucit
stalls with more or leas reluctance, but
when   once   the  tires  caught   the  cur
tracks Silver knew what to expect.  He
- and bis team mates could feel  Liinnl-
i gun gathering In the reins ns though
for a full slop.   Next came the whistle
of   tl ���   whip,    lt  swept  across  their
flunks so quickly that It was practically one stroke for them all.   At tbe same
1 moment I.auiiignu loaned fur forward
j ami   shot  out  his  driving  arm.     Tbc
reins wont loose, their heads went forward and, as If moving on a pivot, the
three leaped as one horse.
Left to themselves, each horse would
have leaped at a different Instant. It
was that one touch of the lush nml tba
succeeding swing of I.ttiinlgan's bulk
whieh gave them the measure, wlilch
set the time, wbich made lt possible for
less thuu 4,000 pounds of horseflesh to
jump a live ton truck up the street at
u four minute clip.
