"Will we ever l;o happy eg'.In, and
faco     the     iforld  like o:h r | cople,

. husband in a transport «,f grief.

plicd, caressing Ihc curly, sold n

"Here we arc, sir," said the calv

Handing him llis fee, I.o Iloy us-

he walked rapidly up the street In
tho 'direction of the depot, talking
to her gaily Iho while of the luippi-

"it is my Intention to get (is far

affair. Poor fellow, he is out sen-ch-
Ing for apartments for us now. Fenton has been a friend in need, Ihore-
' fore, n friend indeed to us, Bonnylin; ho is the best-heni'ted fellow the
world hole!.*.."
As they entered the depot e|iiite a
commotion was bcin.rr created ut tho
corner of Avenue A nnd Ii Street.
Jogging leisurely along, the cabman
soon found himself in custody, hut
ncrain Bonnylin's foes were haired;
tho coupo was empty.
"Tho couple who engaged the coach
at E  Street got out nt the corner I just turned." he snld in answer to their queries. "They cannot
have got over a block awuy. They
went in the direction ol the depot."
"Can you give us n description cf
the''.couple?" was the hurried question.
The cabman could and did. Tho
gentleman was dark—with a brown
overcoat, and Slouch .hat i idled well
over his fuce—the lady was slight
and slender, lie should ji:d;e\ although her form wns enveloped in a
long, dark, circular -cloak; a veil
covered her face, but he saw the littlo hand ungloved which clasped ihe
gentleman's arm; it was white an:l
A moment later the two men, who
had hastily jotted down the dtsctip-
tions, were hurrying along with all
possible speed in the direction of the
Lc Hoy und Bonnylin, having purchased their tickets, passed through
the gates to find .-cats in the car.
The train would not start for fifteen minutes yet; still they preferred
entering the car to remaining in the
waiting room.
llonnylin was jubilant over the
prospect of leaving fen* behind ■ hor

In' proportion to Bonnylin's gay-

but he took great care to conceal it
most effectually from her.
Ten minutes passed; Le Iloy count-

throbbing henrt bents.
Tho car hatl commenced lo fill with
passengers — every available scat

Tho anxiety Lo Roy had felt as

As ho wns thinking it. over, paying
little heed to Bonnylin's merry voice,
a young girl entered the car.
llonnylin gave a little cry of startled delight.
"Oh, Le Roy!" she cried, pressing
his arm nil in a flutter. "Look! tlveio

"Wo were such very elcar friends,

in the clothes basket from the dormitory window on the memorable

words, his gnzo was riveteel upon
two men who had Just entered the
car. He noticed that they did not
drop into tho scut near tha door,
which they must have seen at n
glunco was the only sent. vacant;
jnsiiael. they passed slowly up tho
aislo gazing*keenly into (ho faces of
the passengers right and left ns tlvy
"It ls a pity those two gentlemen
cannot lind scats." said llonnylin.
"The rnilwny companies .should not
accept pusscngcrs' money if tliev

you think so, Le Hoy'.'"
But LO Hoy, whei was nn pule ns
nshe'S, answerod never a word; his
gnzo wns riveted with a horrible fus-
i-iiinliiin upon Ihc two men advancing steadily up the aisle.
Le. Iloy tumid his fuce toward the
window until they should pass.
They were nearly abreast of the
seat where lie ami Beinnylin sat now.
Was It his mad fancy, or diel thoy

Tho moment their gaze hnd rested
upon tho tw-o seated there, they had
exchanged  significant  nods.
As llonnylin turned townid them,
the elder of the two toole off his
hat, and liowlng gravely to Bonnylin, said slowly:
"Vou are Mrs. Bonnylin rierpont,
I believe?"
Au agony of terror took possession
of  Bonnylin,     her  heart sunk,      her
brain reeled,  the  darknoss     of    the
gruve sei'ini'd to close mound her.
I     "You are Mrs. noiinylin Fieri ont,"
ho repeated,  taking a folded     document from his inner breast pocket.
|     "Yes." faltered Bonnylin, in a dy*
j ing voico.
I '"Ihen, madam, I have a most
painful duty to perform," ho Eaid in
1 a low voice. "Mrs. I'icrpemt, you are
'my prisoner," nnel ho laid a hand on
her shoulder.
Wilh an agonized .shriek, Bonnylin
sprung to her feet nn-d throw herself
into tho arms of her husband, sobbing out:
"()h, Lc Roy, save me—savo me,
dear I Don't let them force mo to go
with tbem."
"You must lpave the train before
it is in motion," said the." officer in
the samo low, cautious I ono. "Ono
moment more it will start. You ore
Mr. Pierpont, I am certain. Mny I
ask that you will kindly load your
young wife out on the platform."
With the bitterness of death at his
heart, Le Roy obeyed, loading poor
Bonnylin, who was weeping hysterically out by tho hand.
In u trice the train swept on. They
did not sec a wild, terror-stricken,
girlish face at the window ns it glided out of the depot nmidst shrill
whistle ancl clanging of bells. Annabel Dwight had discovered tho pros-
rnco of poor Bonnylin on tho train
too late.
As the officer's wore citizen's
clothes, the appearance of tho quartet on tlto platform attracted no
spccieel attention, and Le Roy thanked  Cod it was so.
As they reachcel the platform, Le
Roy turned toward tho oflicor, nnd
satd :
"You see, sir, her heart is breaking. Will,.yon permit mo to have
just one word nlone with her ?"
Tho officer in charge hesitated,
"I know it is useless to tell you
how entirely innocent my poor
young Wife is—of that which a cruel
combination of circumstantial evidence has Imputed to her ; you
would still have your duty to perform."
"You are right, Mr. Pierpont, and
a. cruel duty it is, 1 assure you. I
am willing indeed, sir, to make this
sad affair as-little elistrcssing to tho
young lady as possible. Speak five
miuutes to your wife if you will; it
will take my companion that length
of timo to letch around a cab."
"I am grateful for your concession, sir," said Le Roy, as ho moved a few steps to one side, and his
companion left bim, as ho said, to
procure a cab.
In tho moment of timo they hnd
been standing there, with lightning
rapidity Lo Hoy had weighed every
possible chance of escape. Thoy were
all impracticable, and would end in
instant recapture, nnd ono by ono he
was   forced   to   abandon  thom.
"Thi'y arc gone—eih, Lo Roy, they
are gone I No—thoro one of them

fearfully nround her, then wildly up
Into her agonized young husband's
"You must save me, Lo Roy, from

hiin with death-cold hands. "Thero

"Oh, m.v darling—my darling I" ho
groaned, in aa agony of despairing
love, "you wring my heart !"
"I nm not afraid of a violent death,
Lo Roy," she pleaded bravely. "Bct-i
tor death of that kind than—than—"
"Oh, Bonnylin. my little wife—my
procioUS, innocent love ! I four your
sorrow is elri ing you insane !" ho
cried. _"I will save .vou, Itonnylin I
1 swear It by all my hope's of heaven ! I do not yot seo clearly heiw,
but I will dc it," he snid solemnly,
pressing her to bis  henrt.
"Save me from them this wny I"
she wildly entreated, Inclining her
golden bend to the polished rails,
never removing ber frenzied eyes
from his fneev
Ho lenlizi'el if ho looRened his hold
of her for one fntal instant. Bonnylin would curry out hor design, and
he held her fast ns though death Itself should not. take her from him.
"f cannot endure   the dishonor of
an arrest—I, who hnvo never harmed
li living creature—dear I" sho sobbed
piteous' '. "If they approach mo
again, <ir touch me, I should go mail,
Le Roy—yes, mnd !"
At that moment the officer drovo
around to the platform, springing
from a seat beslile the caliimen; anil
his fellow-ofliier, now that, tho llvo
minutes' grace was up, approached
What he said was drowned In tho
shrill whistle of the outward-moving
train, which was now unelcr full
heae I way.
Bonnylin, ln a frenzy too wild to
bo pictured by weak words, had
watched for her opportunity, and
beforo Lo Roy could devine her intention, sho had torn herself from his
arms with a shriek, and hnd cast
herself on tho iron rails directly bo-
foro tho engine.
In an Instant tho greatest confusion reigned. Men held thoir breath
in horror, women shrieked aloud,
and children gazed with terror too
Croat   for   words    upon    tho awful.
blood-curetting spoctacle.
Had the beautiful, golden-haired
young creature slipped aecidontally
from the platform, or had sho
thrown herself voluntarily before the
moving train ?
Quick as the action bad been the
officer had anticipated it. In a
Hash he had sprung to the rescue,
and hurled tho slight figure out of
dange's path, but not a second too
soon. They had barely cleared the
spot ere tbe huge engine, under full
steam, thundered over the place
where Bonnylin  held lain.
Lo Roy's horror and dismay, and
his gratitude to Heaven thnt she had
been speirod to him, is more easily
understood than expressed by weak
She had fainted. It was a mercy
to her that sho would be unconscious
to tho pitifully thrilling events that
wore to transpire around hor ; yot,
hor unconsciousness baffled the plan
her husband had formed of a daring
escape. Ills despair was heartrending ; the paleness of his face
alone betrayed it.
"Will you toll mo where you Intend
taking my poor, unhappy wifo from
here ?" asked Lo Roy, huskily, as he
took tho slender figure from the officer's arms nnd held her close
against his madly beating, breaking
"Direct to tho Jail, whispered the
man, nodding toward tho carriage
in waiting. "Come thb. way with
her,  please."
They made their way through tho
excited crowd of bystanders who
scemd to havo caught at the truth
as if by magical instinct. This was
Pierpont's young bride.
Although they permitted Le Roy to
enter the coach and still retain tho
hapless, slender figure in his arms,
ho saw that he was closely guardeel.
The hope of escape ln tho face of all
this was madness.
Onco he made a quick movement
toward tho coach door, and th«
officer sitting on tho right of him
laid a detaining hand on his arm.
"I can read your thoughts, Mr.
Plcrpont, and I warn you in a
friendly, manner not to attempt lt,
for it wouldn't bo a bit of uso, you
know, because sho would bo suro to
bo retaken In no time. It would
cause a fuBS, and be very unpleasant
all around. I nm disposed to treat
you kindly lf I can."
"I understand the position," replied Lc Roy, with a groan. "Can
nothing bribe you, gentlemen, to let
her go i ._ ?" he cried in wild despair. "I shall be a wealthy man by
inheritance. I solemnly vow to mako
both of you rich for life if you will
sit quietly hero nnd permit us to
leap through that door into tbo
darkness. Remember my poor darling is ns innocent as a child of
what you charge her. I will make
you both rich for life—ay, I will
divide my fortune between you, every
dollar of it.   What do you say 7"
Of course, being together, thero
was but one answer they dared
mako, and they answered simultaneously, with keen glances into each
othor's eyes.
"It is useless to talk that way,
Mr. Pierpont. You cannot bribe
us ; wc are officers of the law, sworn
to do our duty at all hazards, and
do our duty we shall."
In a short space of time they
reached the Jail, and tho hardest
work they ever accomplished wns to
take the, unconscious little brido from
the frantic young husband's arms,
lt had to bo done by force.
In the midst of this scene up came
Frank Fenton nnel Dr. Montgomery.
Thoy had just heard tho terrible
news that huel traveled with lightning-like rapidity through the city.
Fenton camo nt onco to Lo Roy's
side, but Dr. Montgomery did not
approach him ; he played the part of
an entire stranger toward Lo Roy.
Ho had his own rceisons for doing
so. •
Ono of tho officers espied tho doctor und approached him.
"You aro a physician," he said
hurriedly. "Will you kindly come
this way and attend this lady ?"
Dr. Montgomery readily assented,
restraining with an effort tho gleam
of exultant triumph that shot into
his eyes ns his glance significantly
met Fcnton's as he passed him by.
"Do you know this lady ?" asked
the officer as he led him to Bonnylin's side.
Sho had boon removed to the sheriff's private parlor.
"I havo not thnt pleasure," answered the doctor truthfully enough.
"You will do what you can for
her, doctor, to bring her out of this
deep swoon."
What the doctor's anxious thoughts
wero ns he gazed with intense flty
info that beautiful, girlish, upturned
whito face they would novcr have
"Tho case ls a pitiful ono," said
the sheriff's wifo, standing by. "Tho
young husband Is raging liko mad
elown below, and when she opens her
eyes and finds herself in custody tho
sccno will be heart-rending. You
must bo hero to quiet her.
"1 shall remain for the present,"
answorod the doctor quietly.
Tho restoratives he had forced between Bonnylin's whito lips soon
brought her out of tho deadly swoon,
nnd suddenly tho wondering blue
eyes flashcel open.
Seeing the oyer's flutter slightly,
bo hud taken the^prcciuition to send
the sheriff's wife lor a spoon and a
towel, In order to bo alone with
llonnylin the  moment sho camo to.
It was well ho did so, for with
returning consciousness, ns the blue
eyes opened ond memory returned to
her, the most piercing shrloks fell
from her lips.
"Who saved me, when I wanted so
much to die 7" sho cried wildly.
"Whore am I ? Oh, Lo Roy I Lo
Roy I"
"Mrs. Pierpont, for tho love of
Hoaven listen to what I have to sny
to you," whispered tho doctor with
llghtning-liko rapidity. "I nm your
sworn friend till death, nnd Lo Roy's
friend. Now listen : you wero saved
from death on tho rail ; thoy took
you from Le Hoy's arms and brought
you hero.    You aro in custody."
A piteous moan Interrupted him.
"For the love of Heaven, listen,
Mrs. Pierpont, to what I am saying.
Thoy aro coming. What I sny must
bo said quickly. You aro in custody,
but I swear to you I will savo you
lind placo you in vour husband's
arms within a week. Will you believe mo ?"
Only tbo piteous moans of poor
llonnylin  answered  him,
"Trust all to me," ho sail hopefully.
And at thnt instant tho sheriff nnd
his    wife    entorotl    the   apartment,
whleh they hnd not intended should
hnve been left unguarded for a single instant.
"Ah, she lies rognlne'd consrleius-
ness," snld tho officer*
"Not quite," returned the doctor ;
"but she will soon  now."
"If  sho  noes  on  lu   this  wnv   she
wi:l woi-ft lierself up into a high
fever. Hadn't you butter leave hrr
a quieting powder, doctor 7" suggested the sherifi.
"I have left one," responded the
doctor. '-If she should grow worse
Jin in<-- tho night you can sond for
me, otherwise I will call to-inorrow
It so happened that the doctor hnd
once saved the life of the sherLVs
only child, after tho best physicians
of tho city had declared that he must
die-no earthly aid could save him ;
therefore the sheriff bad the most unbounded regard for Dr. Montgomery.
Fenton was waiting impatiently
enough, outside, for tho doctor, and
together they drove to Fenton's
rooms, whore thoy found Lo Roy
I'ierpont pacing tho floor liko a man
driven mad, as well he might bo.
"You must not givo up to despair, my boy," said Fenton, "all is
not yot lost ; she shall escape from
them, I swear it I"
The excitement throughout the city
the next morning was intense ; as
soon as daylight dawnctl tho square
around tho jail was literally packed
with a surging throng of human beings anxious to learn if i t wore
'truo that tho meshes of tho law had,
indeed, closed around tho beautiful,
hapless young bride.
Loud were tho manifestations of
sorrow. Duty must be done, but
she was so young and fair. Strong
men turned away with tears in their
eyes, and In tint cold snowy streets
women knelt and prayed for her.
Ay, they prayed that Cod would
take her to himself ore tho hangman's rope encircled that beautiful
white throat, and her soul plunged
in the black abyss of eternity.
Thoy would not believe her guilty
in faco of all tho overwhelming evidence.
ln the midst of the throng—a carriage, containing a white-haired
lady, drovo rapidly through tho
crowd. People made way for her
right and left; they recognized her
at a glance as Le Roy rierpont's
haughty mother.
"1 cannot soo her ; it would break
my heart !" she sobbed out, wringing her fair, old, Jeweled hands,
"but tell her this for me, 'I—I will
spend every dollar I have In tho
world In trying to free her.' "
How tho sheriff pitied tho proud
old lady. In his own opinion all tho
gold In tho universe wottlel prove Ineffectual in sotting her son's brldo
India Margrave's lover was pushing the matter through with tho
persistency of a sleuth-hound.
"Because sho is young and fair
would you screen her from the consequence of her terrible crime ?" ho
cried hoarsely, addressing the groups
of people that hovered around the
jail. "Beautiful India, tho girl who
was so cruelly slain, lies sleeping under tho sod, and her soul cries out
for vengeance—an eye for an cyo, a
tooth for a tooth, a lifo for a life,
lt is written and so it shall bo.
Wero sho twico as fair—with all tho
Pierpont millions to back her—I
should still cry out that justice must
bo done, and the full penalty of tho
law meted out."
There were hisses among tho throng
and loud cries of Bonnylin's inno-'
Among tho crowd, drinking in
every word, wns a tall, dark man,
muffled to the chin and wearing his
hat pulled low over his face. As
the words "a life for a lifo" fell on
his oars, he turned livid, and tho
hands that he kept in his overcoat
pocket wero clinched so tightly together that the nails cut into tho
flesh, yet he did not scom to heed
the pain.
At midn'ght the same dark-browed
man stood in the shadows, watching
up at the gloomy windows of tho
jail, muttering that he would find a
v-ay to rescue Bonnylin, though tho
bolts anil burs of iron wore twice ns
strong, and that, too, ore the week
waned, ho would rescue hor and fly
with hor—tho man was Basil Severno.
Fonnylin's piteous grief upon realizing whero sho was and what had
happened was terrible to behold, and
ns  thoy had feared, she wept herself

| a dotailed     account    of  tho famous
i trial,  or how    the court-houso   was
! literally    packed    with  a breathless
j multitude,     who    watched  tho   fair

; for words as sho sat by her devoted
husband's  side,     hor     lovely  golden
head  bowed    low    on     her heaving
. breast, and her bonutlful face white
as death.
Eloquent speeches wero mado on
both sides.
The scene, with all its ghastly nor-
ror, was vividly portrayctl—tho grand
ball, tho young bride's terrible jealousy, and her reckless threat ; tho
subsequent murder of her be-autiful
rival, tho blooely dagger found In
tho hapless bride's hand, and lastly
tho accusation of the dying girV—
charging poor Bonnylin with tho awful crime.
Bonnylin's silver-tongued counsel
made tho most, eloquent speech that
ever took tho heart of a great multitude by storm ; such a thrilling.
Stirring speech thnt strong men wept

his breast.
And silence as oppressive as death
reigned in the room.
It was broken at last by a slight
noise ; tho door of the jury-rooiii
opened, and the twlcve men who held
tho poor little bride's life ill their
hands filed    slowly    buck   to    their
All hearts stood still ; Le Roy
Pierpont   was  as   white  as  death.
"Gentlemen," said the judge, addressing the Jury, "have you agreed
upon your verdict ?"
"Wo have," answered the foreman,
"Prisoner, stand up and fnce the
jury," proceeded the clerk, addressing Bonnylin.
"Bonnylin, my darling, look at the
jury," whispered the heart-broken
husbnnd, rising with her, and slip-
porting her plender form in his strong

"Jurymen, look upon the prisoner," continued ■ tho clerk, "and answer : Do you find the prisoner at
the bar guilty or not guilty ?"
Slowly the foreman stepped forward and answered :
The silonco of death followed. Ihe
world seemed tolled like a 1 nell
through  tho crowded courtroom.
But tho doom that was spoken by
the pitying judge fell upon de-af cars,
Beinnylin had fallen back in a deadly swoon in her husband's sheltering
So pen can ever fully describe what
followed! With frantic des; air Lo
Hoy bad attempted to Bprlng headlong from the window with hi* da'
ling in his arms. He realized it
weni lei be death for both of the'in,
but belter die together, than have
the law carry out its fatal decree.
Firm but gentle hands pinioned
him, and for the second timo Bonnylin was torn from' his arms.
No one who witnesseel that scone
ever forgot it; anel amidst the terrible cxiitoment that ensued, Bonnylin was taken from the courtroom by
the private exit, anel replaecel in her
old   quarters.
In vain the governor wns appealed
to by Bonnylin's counsel. lie turned
a deaf car to their plendini's. He
would not intcifere wilh the just
sentence of the law. Be it prince or
peasant, a life should pay for a life
willfully taken.
These, although not tho words,
was the substance of his answer, and
tho despair ot death settled over the
hearts of Bonnylin's fi iends.
There was one other vitally in'or-
ested in Bonnylin's fate ; that other
was Basil Severne. As ""t tho opportunity he had patiently waited
for to effort DonnvUn's escape bad
not presented itself. Ho would
sooner have seen Bonnylin die thein

die for that crime, ho vowed to hiin-

lie would rescue her and claim her,
taking her so far nwny she would be
completely lost to her friends nnd the
world, forcing her to live with him,
to bear the chains that were forged
on  that fatal wedding-night.
There were more reasons then one
wby ho dared not openly claim Bonnylin  as his bride.
While ho was maturing his startling and daring plan, Fenton nnd Dr.
Montgomery Were equally as energetic.
A strange quiet hnd come over Le

it was Fenton who broke the news
to Lc Hoy i'ierpont. He had ex-
pecte'd frantic ele'spair, emd was
wholly unprepared for the submissive
way in wliich Le Hoy listened to the
cruel words.
"It is hotter so, Fenton," he
whispered, huskily. "Ood knows
that I have prayed for this rather
than that my darling should fac tho
fate that would bo moled out to her.
. God has answered m.v prayer."
I There was widespread excitement
when the death of beautiful llonnylin became known. Poor, hapless
llonnylin,    whom     the-y   had  hunted
■ down to her eloum. Even hor enemies  dared    utter     no     word  public

could not follow her beyond tho
gates of death.     She w,is  free from

Everybody believes in a dreamy
sort of way of '.ho elllcacy of a well

thu recorded cases of restored health

comes up in the homo town, when the
pulicut is known tn everyone, and
when the curo is nol only positive
but marvellous, the efficacy en the
medicine becomes a fact—a elee-ieleel
thing. For litany years the Post has

for I'ale People; large quantities ol

attracted the attention of our reporter and ho investigated. Miss Flor

living la the west part of the town,

A curious contest between e kangaroo and a buffalo took place ln a large
soologleal park in the north of England. The two animals, after breaking
loose from their Inclosure, met face to
face ln an open space lu tbo park.
Without any preliminary quarrel, the
bull made n furious onslaught on tbe
kangnroo, which at first contented Itself with an endeavor to avoid tbe
After a few moments, however, the
bull's attentions became altogether too
personal to pass unrcbuked, nnd, using
Its hoofs ns battering rams, the kangaroo belabored the buffalo In the most
effective manner. Homing and bellowing, the Irate buffalo made repeated
attempts to gore its antagonist to
death, but with scant success, the knn
gnroo proving n most "slippery" foe
The fray waxed furious for over nil
hour, nt the end of which time the
buffalo retired, not before, however.
Its carcass here unmistakable signs

with them.
There wore three contingents, representing Toronto, Victoria, and
Trinity electeel, the numbers being
twelve, five, and flvo respectively.
The- number of voting graduatis in
the University of Toronto is about
'1,500, in Victoria University about
0ii(i, and In 'IVinity University about
600. There nro about 3,500 voters j.,",...

The paper Is especially mnde for tho
purpose and Is Bprinkled with gold
leaf. Only the last few H1103 of the
somewhat lengthy document contain
the purport of the letter, while the remainder Is made up of the usual roundabout and complimentary phrases. It
Is folded In a peculiar way, with the
flaps outward and placed In a muslin
bag, and this latter Iuto one of crimson and gold tint, with n slipknot of
gold thread, attached to which Is a
ponderous seal. The address, written
on a slip of parchment, la attached to
the outside bag. These details are very
important for polite letter writing In

The making of soap is no longer a chance mixture of miscellaneous fats. Expert chemists carefully watch and test every step in the

The fats and oils must be perfectly pure and at every stage of the'
