The Crime of Hallow-Fen:

Author of "A Br..ken Betrothal,"  "The Heiress of
Cameron Hal!," "Parted at the Altar," Etc.
They had not darkened the room
after the usual funereal fashion, and
the full light of the sunshine stole
into the solemn chamber ; tlio faint
golden sunbeams touchod the beautiful white face, so sill' and solemn in
death ; tho white hands were folelcel
and 1-y motionless on the quiet
heart. Tho lovely, golden hair lay
in soft rings on the white brow, entwined with pale blossoms, so that
she looked like a murblo bride on a
bed of flowers.
Death wore no stern aspect there,
the agony and the torture, tho dread
and fear were all forgotten; there
was nothing bu' the sweet smile of
one at perfect rest. Tho long hours
of the day dragged thoir slow length
by, and the shadows of evening loll,
still Le Roy would not permit thein
to disturb him.
Through tho long hours of the day
and far into tho night thoy heard his
pitiful lament:
"Oh, Bonnylin, my beautiful darling, why could not I havo dlod In
your place; there is no torture, no
suffering I would not have endured
for your sake. My heart will be buried in your grave."
His mother went to him at last.
"Le Iloy," she sobbed, laying her
fair. Jeweled hands on his bowed
head, "come away, dear, the sight
of her white fuce is driving you
"No," he said. "I will not leave
her until -ihe is carried away."
He knelt by tho coffin, and tho terrible vigil went on.
Only Heaven knew how ho kissed
those cold lips. Was it his fancy nr
did they seem to smile faintly under
his heart-broken caresses, as the reel
light of the flickering embers in the
grate played over those perfect, marble features?
Midnight struck from the adjoining belfries. Still the bereaved young
husband kppt the lonely dcnlh watch.
But through the dense stillness
there was the sound of stealthy, cautious footsteps creeping along the
corridor outside.
They paused before the door, the
knob tur--jfever so slightly, and the
door noiselessly swung back on its*

Entering the room softly, the midnight intruder closed the door after
him, and swiftly approurhed the casket, and bending over it with a sudden movement, lifted tho body of
Bonnylin in his arms, and hastily
retreated toward tho door.
"Standi Advanco another step at
your peril!" exclaimed a voico of
thunder, and like lightning Lo Roy
threw himself beforo tho daring midnight Intruder; but tho terrific blow
from his strong right arm never descended, for the man caught his
hand in a death-like grip, and a
voice strangely familiar whispered
"Hush, for the love of Heaven! I
am no enemy, Pierpont; I am a
friend.   Don't you know me?"
Le Roy staggered back like ono
"Dr. Montgomery!" he gasped in
horror too great for words.
"Yes," replied the doctor quietly;
"it is I." and as he spoke ho placed
the inanimate form he beld in his
arms, not in the casket again, but
an the couch.
"Lock tho door, Pierpont!" ho said
authoritatively. "I havo something
to say to you," and silently Le Roy
obeyed. "Do you think you can bear
a great shock, Le Roy?" sale! his
friend earnestly. "They say that joy
never kills. Prepare yourself to hear
something that will make you delirious with happiness."
Le Roy Pierpont stood before him
too agitated to speak; something
very like the truth glimmcrir;.
through his mind.
"I can hear anything, doctor, ns

God's sake, don't keep me in suspense a single instant."
"I will not," replied tho doctor
earnestly. "Then hear this, Le Roy.

and I had sworn with Fenton to aid
you in rescuing her if it lay within
human power, and I have kopt my
oath, When I saw that the vordict
went against her, I resolved upon a
desperate plan. I administered a
powerful drug to her, that she might
fall into this trance, which so closely
resembles death that oven expert

of the startling truth.

His  Intense  happiness  brought  tears

from the fireplace where they could

Ho could scarcely refrain from
throwing himself in bis mother's
arms and tolling lier all, but discretion prevailed.
"I have come to tako my last look
at the poor darling," she sobbed, approaching the casket; but she started back with n low cry. "Why have

crossing her mind that she should

"I could not bear It any longer,

Frank Fenlon and llr. Montgomery wero soon called into the room,
and with his arm lovingly clasped
around the sweet little bride who
had been so miraculously snatched
from the grave, Lo Roy arranged his
future plans.
It was decided that they should go
abroad with as littlo ilelay as possible.
What moro natural than that the
bereaved husband should seek other
climes at once, leaving behind him
forever the story ot tbo sorrowful

to go on tho same .steamer; and onco
across tho seas, a new life of love,

for the Servia, bound for Liverpool.
His friends bad engaged tha stateroom

booked as Mrs.  Black.
Was it accident or fate that caused Basil Severne to tako passage on

pool, and a still crueler fate that assigned hint tho stateroom next to
Bonnylin's ?
Bonnylin stood on the deck of the
steamer watohbtnr the blue lino of
shore as "it frfjli.t oWay in the distance,with Childish delight; sadly at
variance, it is to be feared, with the
character of tho quiet widow she had
But her happiness was short-lived.
Before the steamer had been an hour
at sea, she began to experience seasickness, and retired at onco to her
cabin. It, was fully eight days before sho was able to Icavo it; and to
make the matter all the moro pitiful
Lo Roy dared not go to her. She
was entirely in the charge of tho
steamer's physician and the stewardess.
On tlio evening of tho eighth day,
quite contrary to tho physician's orders, she stole silently out on deck,
eagerly .scanning the faces of' tho
passengers loitering about, in search
ot Lo Roy.
"I must see him 1" she told herself, desperately,
He was not there. Walking to an
isolated part of the deck, she mado
up her mind to wait patiently for
him; sooner or later he would be
Btire  to   make his  appearance.
As Bonnylin leaned over tho railing, drinking in the exquisite beauty
of the ocean scene, and listening to
the melody of tlio song tho wild
waves were singing, tho hours Uew,
by tinlieeeleel.
Ono by ono the passengers had
quitted tbo deck, leaving tho lonely
figure leaning on tho railing to tho
Bolitudo of the fast-approaching midnight hour, and  lo herself.
And yet Lo Roy had not put in an
Still she felt suro that ho would
come If she waited.
"Oh, how heavenly it would be to

glasses from my eyes for one little

hasty glance around and seeing sho

Hastily untying the widow's cap,

How the night winds caressed the
lovely, golden curls and the sweet,
dimplctl face.
Her surroundings carried hor back
to that memorable night on the
ocean steamer, when Le Roy, her
daring, handsome lover-husband, had
risked his brave, young life to save
Through what strange scenes they
had been together since then. Wus
sho the same willful, potted capricious darling of those days ? she asked herself.
"But still, though I have suffered
so much, I have Lo Roy's love," sho
murmured thankfully.
A slight noise directly behind her
Btartleel her, and glancing hastily
around, she saw a gentleman standing beside her, wilh both of his arms
leaning on the railing.
Why did tho very sir seem stilling
and oppressive ? Why did tho golden light seem to die out from the
moon, the stars to fade, tho beautiful sea to grow black as hades, and
tlie heart in her bosom to beat with
one terrible, awful throb ?
Tho duri.-bci.rdcd man took a step
forward, nnd Bonnylin raised her
white arms, as though beseeching
Heaven to save her; a chill so bitter,
no deep, she thought it must be
death, crept over her. Even beforo
his voice fell upon her terrified ears,
she knew the horrible truth—it was
Basil Sovornc. Had tho grave given
back its dead ? The man whom aha
had believed to } be lying colel and
still in death, the man who had forced her into lhat. bated marriage on
that fatal Hallow-eve, the man from
whom she had Ibelloved Heaven had
fie'ed her, stood' in the flesli before
His dark, burning fierce eyes wore
fixed upon the water—it was only a
question of a few fieeting seconds before he would turn them upon her
face—and then—she dared not think
What would happen then.
Tbo shock  was so awful,  so   horrible, Bonnylin stood like one dazed,
rooted to tlie spot, trembling like a
leaf in a blast.
She quite expected    him to spring
forward, grasp her in his strong,
steel-like grasp,  crying yut :
"Uoniiyliii, iny wile, what are you
doing here ?"
Then she must tell him. Tell him
bow she had believed him dead, and
married  lite man she loved.
(lod help her, how his harsh laugh
would ring out on the summer air,
and ho would cry out with fierce exultation :
"You are not his wife; you are
mine ! you must leave him and come
with me."
Then ho would tear her from Le
Roy's arms and force her to go with
blm, that meant the darkness and
bitterness of doath. If she deuiur-
rcd, muelo the slightest resistance, he
woulel in malignant fury cry out to
the world who she wets. That would
bo the revenge he would take upon
These thoughts flashed with lightning rapidity through ber brain, and
all in the space of ihe moment,
wliich seemed like long ages, in
Which ho had been standing thero.
"I beg your pardon, madam," ho
said, in llie harsh voice she reinom-
l.i'i'cd nei well; "I hope 1 havo not
startled yon  !"
A faint, choking cry broke from
Bonnylin's white, stiffening lips. Sho
tried to turn and fly, but Heaven itself Boomed against. Iter; sho hael not
even power to lift her white, trembling liaiiils or turn her fnce away.
As no reply fell from her lips Basil
Severne turned his eyes from tho
star-sown waves and looked eit her.
He started back with a horrible
"Bonnylin I" he cried hoarsely ;
"ah, feilr of face anil feelsc of heart,
I have tracked you down at last,
have 1?"
In an instant he bad gained her
side, and was grasping tbo whito
arm that waa upheld to shield her.
Then for one awful moment, whilo
the sea waves moaned around them
and tho silvery moonlight drifted
down upon her terrified face, thero
was profound silchco between them.
As a friijlitenejl—chri.. slands mos-
ini'i'izi'il, pelrilicti bofori it deadly serpent, Bonnylin stood beforo Basil
Severno. in the calm of '.ho summer
night lier doom had ovoi-lnken hor.
llis anger-dlstortod faco, avid with
aroused' hatred mul triumph, was
terrible to sec. BonnyHu's was
pitiful to liebiilil in ils pale,, pathetic
loveliness eind  uniitti'r.ilile fear.
"1 have found yuii nt latH I" repeated Basil Severno, harshlV. "Clio
hour that I hav0 longed for lias
como at lust I"
His laco darkened, and in a smgie
Instant lt seemed to grow almost
fiendish in  its awful fierceness.
"You are shocked to see me alive,
I can readily believe," he went on
harshly. "But let nie tell you, 1
would have como buck from my
gravo to havo haunted you for What
you hnve done," be went on bitterly. "How dared you marry the
week after my supposed death ?"
She could not have answered hitn
If her life hatl depended on it. The
very air that he breathed seemed to
stifle ber, anel bis lurid eyes seemed
scorching into her very soul,
"I did not die to please you," he
went on. "I was spared—saved by
a sailor—while my assailant drowned. After a two months' dangerous
Illness I recovered, and weak ns I
was, mado my wuy to Oraystono
"I have always been a cold, harsh
stem man—the last person whom you
would suspect, eif being wrecked on
the rock of love, yet that has been
my fate.
"I have lived all my life never caring to look on a woman's faco. But
love comes tei every human heart
sootier or later. At forty I met my
doom, for it was then that I looked
into your blue eyes and was lost.
Fool that 1 was to allow myself to
bo charmed by your dimpled, fair,
false faco ! I could almost curso
myself for my folly. The wisest and
bravest men arc soldom fortunate ln
love affairs.
"There arc some men who cnn never win the hearts of women, who repel love, whoso very presence is irksome. I was all of this to you,
beautiful Bonnylin. You hated me at
first sight,, yet the more you despis-
j eel antl shrank from mo, the moro I
j worshiped you. When a man of
forty loves, it Is with a passion as
deep as bis own seiul ; such was my
love for you. Forty was old in
your eyes, I was not young and gay
enough to please you ; and though
you married mc because of the terrible sword 1 held over your head,
wc were further apart than the earth
and the stars."
A low moan broke from Bonnylin's
lips, dying away over the pitying
waters ; but Basil Severno was so
engrossed in recalling the past that
he never heeded it, but went on slowly =
"This brings me back lo the time
of my illness, how I called for you
by night and by dny as I tossed on
my feverish pillow. I shall never
forget tho snowy afternoon I opened
the gate and walked up tlio serpentine path that led to Grays.one
"I had said over and over again
to my famished heart, 'When Bonnylin heard of my death, did thoso
blue eyes fill with tears ? Bid ono
kind feeling thrill her heart for the
husband of an hour, whom she had
never lovcel ?' And when I stood
safe and unharmed on tho threshold,
I fed my fond, foolish heart with tho
belief that you would fly to me with
open arms, crying : 'Oh, Basil, my
husband !    Thank God !'
"How I pictured by night and by
day what that meeting between us
would be ! I promised myself that
I would devote m.v life in trying to
win your heart and make you love
mo. Instead of that, what did I
find ?" he asked, fiercely, and almost
involuntarily his hand crept to hot'
lovely white throat, and his clasp
tightened  around it.
"Instead of that, what did I find?"
he repeated fiercely. "Miss Rochester met ine at the door, and the horrible words that greeted me when I
called for you were, that you had
hiaiTietl,  antl gone away.
" 'Married I* I cried aghast, quite
believing my senses were playing mo
false—that I had not heard aright.
'When elid she marry,  and whom ?'
" 'On the week following your Ilal-
low-e'en party,' she informed me,
'and tho happy gentleman was Mr.
Le Roy Pierpont, of Avenue A, Boston.'
"I turned on my heel, cursing, like
qno driven mad. Mai'i'ied—and tho

You woulel not honor even my memory by waiting a few months or
"That thought turned mo into a
fiend incarnate. I vowed a terrible
oalh of vengeance against you. I
vowed that 1 would hunt you down,
and te'ar you from your lover's arms,
and force you to go back with me.
"You shall ruo tbo day you wedded—one week after - my supposed
death—fair, false Bonnylin. 1 will

"It will be a glorious vengi'nance
to force you to return to me—to
snatch you from Iovo and happiness,
to torture you with the knowledgo

You shall find that I, and I alone,

"Go to Lc Roy Pierpont, and tell
him what I havo said—tell him all.
"Tell him when the steamer ltintls

demur or make nu outcry, if he dare,

Human nature could stand no more.
It was quite true all that ho had
said ; all terribly wrong, yet nono
the less  true.
Ho coultl claim her—this stern,
dark-broweei man, who had vowed to
take such terrible vengeanco
against her ; he coulel tear her from
hor darling's arms, defying her love,
scorning and jeering at hor agonized
Poor Bonnylin tried to repress the
moans of mortal terror that sprung
to her pallid lips.
She might as well havo attempted
to beat back tbo waters of tho
mighty ocean.
The darkness of death seemed to
closo in around her, sho threw out
her white arms with the most piteous cry that over arose from a
breaking heart, the lovely bluo eyes
ciliated wilelly.
She had heard a footstep BWiftly
approaching—a footstep sho know but
loo well.
"God be pitiful 1" wns tho cry that
foil from her white,  tulvcring lips.
It was Lo Roy Pierpont.
.This was the one secret sho had
kept carefully locked in her own
breast from Lo Roy, and now her
mortal foe would drag tho skoloton
from tho closet of tho dark past,
and Lc Rov. her heart's love, would
curso the day his fair, nonoratne
name had been coupled with hers upon the lips of men.
She was not Le Roy's bride. Ho
would never pardon her for keeping
tho crime of that Hallow-e'en a secret from him, for in the eyes of
Heaven that forced marriage was a
crime that nothing could blot out.
With hurried footsteps Le Roy
Pierpont was crossing the deck. He
hael seen and recognized Bonnylin,
though her back was turned toward
him. He mistook the tall figure beside her for one of the sailors. Ho
could not hear what they were saying, for the wind carried the sound
o_   their voices away from him.
"How imprudent of Bonnylin to
talk to one of the sailors, and at
this timo of night," he thought,
with sudden fear—she was so innocent, thoughtless, and childish. Ho
must certainly warn her against repeating any such imprudence.
A death-like despair fell over Bonnylin as Lo Roy approached. A sudden impulse surged from hor heart to
her brain to spring to Lo Roy's side,
clasp her arms about him, crying
out :
"Oh my love, whom I have loved
better than lifo, protect mo; rather
than givo me over to my mortal foe,
strike mo doael with your own hands,
dear, and dying I will bless you. I
cannot livo without you, Lo Roy, my
darling, my lost love !"
The impulse had no sooner enteral
Bonnylin's dazed brain than sho acted upon it.
Willi a wild, agonizing shrio't, that
startled tho sea birds whirling about
and around the steamer, sho wrenched her whito arm free from Basil
Soverno's grasp, (low over tho deck,
and cast herself with wild cries,
heart-rending to hear, into Lo Roy
Pierpont's outstretched arms.
"Oh, Le Roy, my love I" she
limited, but that sentence never was
Over tbo water there rose shrieks
and groans and terrible cries, mingled with the sound of hissing steam
and crashing timber.
It was the story of a careless engineer, wbo had gone to sleep at his
post. Tho result was, the great
boilers had burst, carrying death and
destruction in their path.
In an instant the majestic steamer,
within such a few hours of port,
was a total wreck, and was rapidly
sinking, and its living freight of
human beings were precipitated into
the sea.
There was no timo for life-boats.
Who shall picture that horrible
scene upon which the palo moon
oeamed and the light of the stars
Toll ? With a strong clasp that nothing but death could sever, Lo Roy
Pierpont clung to Bonnylin, exclaiming :
"Thank God we are together, darling. If God intends it, wo will bo
saved together, if not—we will die
together, Bonnylin, my  love I"
Even amidst the horrors of that
iwful moment, It struck him chillingly that she should answer :
"Better death     than  life,  Le Roy..
No one could part us from each other
In death."
He had caught onto a plank of
driftwood and though his arms wore
strained, bruised and swollen, Lo Roy
succeceled In clinging to it, and holding Bonnylin up, uhtil day broke,
and with tho dawn help came to
hand. Tbo terrible wreck had been
sighted from a lighthouse in the
gray dawn, and life-boats had been
ordered out to tho rescue at onco.
"Saved, my darling," murmured
Le Roy, faintly, as sho was taken
from bis arms and placed in one of
tho life-boats, but when he clambered in after her sho clung to him with
whitening cheeks and dilated eyes.
Sho had heard the captain say not
a soul had been lost—every one had
been saved.
Then Basil Severne was still alive
to persocuto her and hunt her down.
Tbat ho would search for hor until
bo found her again sho well knew,
tbat is, if ho had but the slightest
inkling of what her fato had been—
tbat sho had been spared.
But ho should never find her—never. Site would kill herself before
his very eyes and thus end it all ere
he should ever again lay hands on
Poor Bonnylin tried to look tho
future ln the faco—the horrible future wliich seemed doubly dark to
hor now.
"Heaven grant that ho may not
find mo and part mo from my love,"
was the pitiful prayer sho sent up to
the Great White Throne.
Poor child, sho was too innocent,
or rather too ignorant of God's laws
and man's, to realize tho griovous
wrong she was committing in clinging to this, honorable, noble young
linen—If she wns Basil Severne's wife.
She was blinded by tho mighty
power of love.
"Lot mo try to forget that horrible Hallow-e'en, and that one act
of folly that accrued from it," she
cried out sharply to herself, "let mo
blot out the past as though it had
never been, and think that my lifo
dales from this moment."
Poor guilty Bonnylin's conscicnco
needed no accuser. It woultl havo
drawn tears from the eyes of the
liartle'st hearted, evon though they
realized hor position, to seo how sho
clung to Lo Roy'B love, Iho love
Which shoultl never havo been hers.
The life-boat had latieleel tho rescued steamer passengers at a small,
isolated   English   village.
Lo Roy was glad to notice that
amidst tho fright and confusion the
passengers hatl paid no hoed to Bonnylin's personal appearance, and tho
absence of the blue glasses and tho
willow's cap. Indeed they could not
place the lilllo golden-haired creature, nono of them remembered having seen her on tlio steamer. Even
