As lt y.as, on tins mgnc in ques-
llon, ha rode h.ird, anil arrived
breathlessly at tho police station;
anil b.v the workings ol a brupl destiny, it happened that the chief had
just come in accompanied by India
Mn wave's lover, who was rajllng
bitter at the utter failure of both
Ine police and -the detectives io unearth tho hid n.t place of the murderer of his beautiful sweetheart, "whose
spirit could navei' rest," he declared
solemnly, '-until her murderer hid
been brought to justice."
It rather piqueel the ihief, toi, tint
a girl, scarcely more than BOVOnteo.i.
and her young husband, _ji ml I be
able lo bailie so completely the must
skillful men of the profession.
The sergeant wbo bad been listening intently to the old se .Inn's story
suddenly excused himself i.n I hold a
short, hurried consultation with hi i
chief; and in a moment of I'lmo the
secret wires in the private ofiitc wero
working, flashing tbo news to every
police station in tho city that the
hiding place of LC Roy l'iei'iont's
young bride had been brought
light at last, of her illness and recovery, and of her sutldi n escape
which followed on tho heels of it.
Every man on each beat throughout the city was cautioned to be ou
the sharp lookout for the fair fugitive.
Tho sergeant at tho desk, in listening to the sexton's story, bad instantly divined tho start! inj
as ho noted the description of the
lovely young stranger found in tho
graveyard on that identical night
on which beautiful, desperate Ban'iy-
lin, flying for her life, near this particular point, had so successfully
eluded them.
Small and petite, rounded, dimpled check and dimpled chin, beautiful, curling, golden hair, and eyes
dark blue and sparkling, veiled by
long, curling, golden laches.
And then her dress—while satin,
like grand ladies wore to bolls — a
white kid glove on one hand, re.'icli
how they wept for beautiful, hapless llm n.'.iin!
' Tbu ill-futi<! I ride, who. erased by
lenlmisy moro hitter to bear thnn
Ihe tortures of death, hifd taken the
life of her nuel toi," for so tbe despatches assented.
'1 h_ terrible deed miist be sternly
.'Onileiiineil: _l_ut even whilo they.condemned, they wept pitiful tears of
sympnt hy for ber.
About n'Hin there was n gieat commotion on the si reel.; extras were
out, uni Ihe whole city was thrilled
to lb: core as they read the startHn..
headlines, which1 read ns follows:
"Fin nil —'Ibe Bountiful fugitive
Tracked Ilo'wn nt Last! — Found in
a Slei_.ll Near tbe t'ily Limits!"
The extras which flooded the city
wore of stnrlling inlcrtst to men,
wonnn. nnd children, and wero eagerly bought up as a consequence.
As th.y rend on, thoy discovered
that thu headline of the extras was
to slightly deceptive. Beautiful Bonnylin had been discovered in n sleigh,
but tho vigilant police had not succeeded in making an arrest'.
It had happened in this way: Whilo
the search was at its height, n horso
and sleigh dashed past tbe searchers,
who wero on foot. They saw by the
feeble light ol tlicit- lanterns that the
sleigh contained two persons—a man
truth heavily lnuflled to tho chin, supporting tho (igure of a woman in his
In the nervousness of passing them,
and owing to the slight shying of
his spirited horse, the covering which
he was holding ubout Bonnylin's
golden head was wrenched from his
grasp, and fell to her shoulders; and
in that instant her face was turned
toward them.
Thero was a loud cry.- Half a dozen
or moro recognized her instantly.
One of them sprang to tho horse's
head, nnd the rest toward the vehicle, crying oul:
There is Pierpont's bride!"

Ah, yes, they knew—even beforo
they had examined the lovely robe
and tho pi-city trifles that mndo up
that fatal ball room costume—that it
was hapless Bonnylin.
Of all places In the city and around
about it, they had never dreamed of
searching for hoc here in their very
midst, as it were. Their chagrin
knew no bounds when they thought
of their own stupidity.
But she was at large somewhere
close at hand, and—nh, the pity of
it!—for paltry, shining gold every
man of them detcrinined to hunt tho
poor, pretty creature down to her
With teeth fairly chattering with
terror, tho old sexton took his wife
aside, and told her the startling news
ho had heard at the police stntion;
who the lovely stranger was who bad
lain unconscious under their roof,
and of tho fearful charge upon whieh
tho officers were searching for her.
Slowly, and with sublime dignity,
his old wife turned to him, brushing
awny the fast gathering tears from
hor dim eyes.
"John," sho said in solemn voico,
"I am not a learned woman, but I
can judgo a human face. 1 am old,
and in my lifetime I have seen every
phase of character that goes to mako
up a. world, rich and poor, high and
low, innocent and guilty, and I tell
you If an nngel caine down from
Heaven and cried out truhiprt-tongu-
fcd that that young girl was guilty
Af so horriblo a crime, I should not
lielieve it. Do you hear me, .lohn
Anderson? I should not believe it,
I say. I would stake my soul upon
hor innocence. Her heart and soul,
and thoso little white hands that
have clung so pitoously to mine, are
as pure as (he spotless snow outside. Tho evidence against her is
overwhelming, you Bay. Human beings beforo to-ilny havo been flung
upon circumstantial evidence. God
preservo the poor, pretty creature
from the wretches that aro hunting
lier down to her doom. And, oh,
John, you set tho wholo pack loose
upon her track, like a troop of hungry wolves—but you did not knuw!" j
"Don't ho hard upon mc, Jenny,"
he cried, humbly. "Of courso I bo-
lievo hor innocent, too. Why, sho ;
wouldn't have harmed a canary, tljat
poor 'child. I'd a-cut my tongue out '
rather than have betrayed her; but
as you well understand I didn't know
to what it would lead. Of courso
they'll take her, Jenny; nothing can
save her now."
All night long tho good, motherly
woman, who had grown to love Bonnylin's sweet, winsome fnce, with all
a mother's tenderness and coinpns-
slonuto yearning, pneed tbe floor
weeping as though her heart would
break, refusing to bo comforted.
All night long the pitiless search
went on.
When early dawn broke they folt
confident of finding thu beautiful fugitive
Sho might elude them ln the In-OHIO
darkness of tho night, but she must
certainly bo discovered when tho
morning came.
They dohatod amnng themselves ns
to what had become of tlie handsome young husband.
Hnd ho deserted her in the hour of
her greatest peril? It looked strangely liko it; but thoso who knew l.o
Roy Plcrpont well could not bring
themselves to believe It.
Ho was of tho kind of men who
would defend the woman they Iovo
to tho death.
This seemed to be generally accepted as tho solution of the deep mystery:
When Ihe oflieers hnd : hit down tho
horso from under the fugiliVfB, Ihut
ono of tho bullets must have mortally.woiindul the young husband and
that by superhuman effort the poor
girl had dragged \im into tlio brushwood out of their reach; lhat he had
died then?; und mad .with frenzy,
Bonnylin had fled on in the darkness,
nnd reaching tho graveyard, hnd fallen down there in a dead faint.
Tito next morning whole columns of
tho dally press teemed with the affair.
Women rCntl 1t with bated hroath
and paling cheeks:  but In suite     ofj
stunning  force  over   the   head   . and
shoulders of the foremost man.
"Back!" ho shouted hoarsely, "every man of you! Attempt to block
my wny or touch that horse at your
By a sudden manipulation of tho
reins, the iron-gray horso wheeled
around in a flash, ■nnd In n trice had
turned back upon the road it had so
lately traversed, and covered with
foam, vanished like a meteor in tho
intense dnrkn.'ss whleh preceded the
breaking of the early winter mom.
Fenton was quite right in tho belief that Ihey hod not recognized hiin
Or bis team, nnd the blanket which
be had thrown over bis horse as ho
saw the waving lights in the road
ahead, hnd performed the same service for tlie amine I.
"I'm afraid it's all up with us
now, ' muttered iYntoii, pityin .ly,
when he stopped to take breath and
wrap his coat ubout the bare, golden
head "l the still unconscious girl.
".What in Heaven's name is to bo
done now? Poor, hapless Bonnylin,
God help and protcet you in this awful hour—and you, I'ierpont, when
you hear of this."
Was it only his fancy, or did he
hear some ono calling his name? He
drew rein and listened intently.
"Mr. Fenton," said a tearful Woman's voice, "it: that you?"
He saw in the struggling morning
light that ho was just passing tbu
old sexton's house, ami the figuro
standing knee-deep in the snowdrifts
ut the gate was the sexton's wife.
"Havo you henrd tho terrible
story "
"Of the beautiful young girl who
was in your houso nnd of her sudden departure?" he cut in, hastily.
"Yon," sobbed the sexton's wife,
pitoously. "Have you hoard all about
j her? 1 cannot, ] will not believe It,
| sir. I will stake my soul on hrr in-
| nocence, and shield her with iny lifo
, If 1 could, and it were in my power."
"Would you?" cried Fenton, a sudden thought shaping itself in ' his
mind ns a last desperate resort.
"Yes," she answered, "1 would,
sir, Heaven knows."
In a moment Fenton hnd sprung
from tho vehicle, bearing Bonnylin in
bis arms. She hnd seen the muffled
figure on tbo seat beside him. but
she had never dreamed it could bo
the  lovely young stronger.
"Tell your husband to put up my
huso und sleigh—get them out of
sight quickly—then come to _mo ill
your little sitting room. Here is the
poor helpless creature; I have
brought her buck to you to chat her
Upon your mercy, lt Is life and death
to her. Tell ine, iu Heaven's name,
cnn  1 depend upon you lo save her?"
"Yes," answered Mrs. Anderson,
trembling wilh excitement. "You
may trust nip, sir,"
Ten minutes later the good woman
"had hoard Bornylin's story from te-
giiining lo end from Ponton's lips.
Sho bad been told that hi himself
took Bonnylin bodily from her house
b.v stealth, lhat they might not discover who it Wns that they had sheltered, to place tho lost bride who
hnd been separated from her frnnlic
young husband hy Iho crudest of nil
cruel fates,  in his arms again.
The old sexton, to repair the great
error he had done, was i.nly too glad
to do nil in his power to aid Bonnylin to evade the Searchers, for he believed fully in her innocence, ns ho
would have believed in Ihe innocence
of nn nngel from Heaven.
"1 shall remove her from hero this
evening under cover of ibirkn.ss,"
suid Fenlon, taking his hnvo after
being repeatedly assure I they would
nlono for Iho poor little bride's pitiful peril which tbey had unconsciously brought upon thnt. golden head,
with their very lives if need  bo.
In all tho fiery ordeal through
which she hnd passed, Bonnylin did
not regain consciousness, owing to
tho powerful narcotic which had been
previously administered hor. It was
certainly a mercy to Heaven that She
did not.
Fenlon left the houso on foot, making his  way  b.v  a circuitous     routp
back to the city.
As he crossed  the threshold  of his
bachelor aparttronts, Lo Roy'Plcrpont—whito and haggard—sprung to
moot him.
"You have been out all night, Ton-
ton!" he cried, In a husky voice
of repressed excitement. "Have you
found  any trace of  my  wife,  or—or
 In Rod's.mime     den't keep me
in suspense, Fenton! You know
what I would say!"
How eagerly his dark ryes de-
mured nis niend's face. His Ifpn
twitched, and his whole frame trembled.
"Can yo'-i bear up tinder groat,
good news, my boy?" cried Fenton,
cheerily. "Joy never kills, thoy
say. Are you prepared to hear
wonderful news—good news, I '
mean?" !
"Yes—yes!" cried Le Iloy.     "Tell j
me at once.     Oh!     Fenton,    you —
you have found my little llonnylin— ]
Is it not so?" he cried  breathlessly.
"In    Cod's name answer mo — yea
or no!"
Fenton nodded.
"1 bave  found  her,   my boy!"     ho
snid,   "alive ftnd well,  and   Here
—hold on—waitl"
"I cannot!" pan'.oJ Pierpont,
struggling to free himself from his
friqnd'a grasp, and to rush madly
to the  door..
"She is not here; 1 did not

pilyingly. "You will realize when
1 tell you how nnd whero I found
her, and all about it, thut I was
wise in not bringing her with me.
You shall go to her, but not until
after dark to-night, remember."
"Ho you think I could stay here,
away from my poor, hapless darling
all tho long hours that will intervene until dark?" criid Lo Roy,
desperately. "1 should go mad.
1 am well 'disguised, Fenton; why
may I not go to her?"
Fenton pushed his friend into a

shall judgo for yoursell," ho responded quietly. "Promise me you

calmness and without interruption,
and 1 will tell you all. Be a man
of iron nerve, Pierpont, and control
your emotion."
Le. Roy Pierpont looked up with
a forced smilo.
"Let it be ns you say, Fenton,
but, in Heaven's name, speak quickly. I havo suffered too much to

Quietly Frank Fenton togan at

The young husband scarcely breathed as he listened, so great was his
powerfully repressed excitement and

was tho only practicable plan to
pursue. And whilo tho long hours of
that never-to-be-forgotten day dragged themselves wearily b.v, Lo Roy
Pierpont and his stanch, noble
friend mapped out a courso of procedure for  the  future.
Ho was so gny'an- bouyant, talking so cheerily of tho golden, sunny days ahead, when this dark cloud
should have blown over, that ho infused the forlorn young husband
with something liko tho chocry spirit
of  happier times.

Le Hoy admitted that this was
quite true. As soon as young Dr.

"Did ever a man have truer,warmer friends?" said Le Hoy, gratefully.
"If the time over comes when I

my heart's blood to do lt. You
hnvo both stood so nobly by poor

you more than weak words can
tell, for your repeated assurances
of your belief in her innocence. No
one can look into her sweet face
and those clear bloc eyes and
doubt her, Ileavun bless her!" ho
added,  fervently.
As the shades of night drew near
Lo Hoy with beating heart sot out
with his friend Fenton to tho old
sexton's home.
They were obliged to go on foot,
and by such_. a circuitous route,
it was nearly ten o'clock at night
ore tbey reached there.
"Will'snc bo expecting us, do you
think?" asked Lo Roy, In a tremulous whisper, as they passed
through tlio gate.
"Yes," returned Fenton; "Mrs.
Anderson will have prepared her for

Tho sexton's wifo opened tho door
for them, fairly beaming tvlth
"Come right in, gentlemen," she
said, leading tho way. "She's

she whispered, turning to Le Roy,

"Oh, Lo Roy, Lc Hoy," and a hoarso
ejaculation     of: "Bonnylin,      my
love, my clarBng thank God—oh,

Then the door quickly closed, and
Fenton and the sexton's wifo were
shut    out from all sight, all sounds.
Half crying, half laughing, she led
Mr. Fenton to Clio cozy sitting-room
across  the ball.
"Wo will leave thom to themselves

At length It became evident tbat

"Como in,. Fenton," said Lo I!oy,
heartily. "I have just been telling
Donnylin what you hnvo dono for
us, and her poor linle heart is too
full for utterance."
"Never mind speaking about that,
old fellow," suid honest, goccl-
hearted Frank Fin I on, with a
blush of embarrassment, c.nJ turning to Bonnylin with a low reverential- bow; "remember, we must not
cry 'hallo! until we nre out of tho
woods,' as the old saying goes.
Hove you explained to your wife
how much, remains to be done yet?"
"He hns told nie that we are to
adopt disguises and go to tenement

we are brother and sister, nnd that
wo may bo forced to seek employment in one of the woollen- mills
to guard1 against suspicion. Oh, Mr.
Fenton, isn't It hold lo do all
this when one is innocent?" she
asked, raising those big blue
piteoiisly to his face.
"It is, indeed," responded Fenton, promptly. "But then, you
know, -Irs. Piorpotit, it falls to
many a person's lot to do ninny
a disagreeable duty brou, ht about
by force of uncontrollable cltcuin-

"Does any oue renlly lielieve I did

the most   piteous horror.
"No, indeed!" doclarcd ' Fenton.
hastily; "every one knows bettor,"
he said, thinking it by far tiniest
plan to ut'ciiy deceive her in this,
to givo her courage, "but all th/_
same, you would have to be put

snid Bonnylin. "Of course 1 ouyht

Again Fenton took subterfuge in
"Has not Le Hoy lo'd you his
mother is not at home, and that tbe

"Wby, no," said Bonnylin, turning her wondering eyes upon the
confused face of her husband. " but

"You are to consider this qnly as
a very romantic little affair, Mrs.
I'ierpont," said Fenton', unfolding
the disguise he had brought with
him, and forcing himself to laugh,
as though this terrible matter which
meant lifo or death to the poor
littlo soul, were only a fine ioko
or "a romantic affair," as he phrased it.
It was only tho plain, ordinary
garb of a working-girl, bought at
one of the ready-made stores — a
dark, navy-blue stuff dress, cheap
in eiuality, with a jaunty little jacket nnd a blue     cloth cap to match.
Out of the capacious pockets of a
long, gingham work-apron, rolled a
black, i.urly wig.
"Am I to put on that thing too'.'"
cried Bonnylin, throwing up her little whito hands in CD.-iic.il dismay.

A Body- From the Prehlstorle Burying; Place* of England.
In Somersetshire, England, mn) be
seen many "barrows," burying places
of prehistoric man. Long ages ago,
when the elephant and rhinoceros, the
lion nnd benr, tbe hyena and wolf, the
great elk nnd the reindeer were among
tho common animals of Engltind, primitive mnn and savage beasts lived in
caves In this region.
At the entrance to these caves the
aborigines, clnd in skins, kept fires
burning for warmth and for protcctio*
from the wild beasts. It wns here tha!

arrowheads. Not long ago a trench

Between the layers was a deposit of
envc earth nud stones, in which wa*
discovered the skeleton of a man of
very grent antiquity in nn excellent
state of preservation. With it were
found sevoral flint knives and flukes.
Experts who made a careful examination of the skull, which has projecting
brows and receding frontal bone, have
decided that lt belongs to the stone age

the paleolithic und neolithic ages.

nround and nround the narrow space,
pretending not to notice ench other uutil suddenly one fish makes a savage

Horses use either their teeth or their

Instance of tho effectiveness of these
wenpons once occurred nt Sheffield
pnrk. A bulldog, barking and snarling,
chased a horse turned loose nround nud
around a meadow, not with angry Intent, but purely from excess of high
spirits. After galloping nround the
field several times tho horse stopped
dead and, turning sharply around,
lashed out at the yelping dog, with a
fatal result, for Its Bkull wus cloven.
The gorilla Is a most formidable opponent In battle, its great strength lying in Its powerful nrms. Few animals
of the forest have the slightest chance
of overcoming a gorilla. A python has
been known to encircle Its coils nround

Vancouver, B. C, Dec,  10,   1904
Active campaign work for Oity election bus started, and from every indication it will be a spirited contest.
It has been usual in Vancouver to
give the Mayor a second term, and we
incline to the belief this year will prove
uo exception in the matter.
It has been stated that Dr. Brydone-
.Jack will not stand for re-election in
Ward V., which is regretted by this
■sectiou of Vancouver which the Doctor
has served faithfully. Alderman
Morton will be a candidate again, and
though we have not agreed with him ln
his stand on muny questions, he certainly has looked after Mt. Pleasaut's
interests zealously. Mr. W. Davis is
out as aldermanio candidate and has
many friends who are anxious to see
jhjm elected.
Although we have always opposed
abolishing the ward system, we would
heartily endorse the move to abolish
.equal expenditure in all wards. There
_to no donbt that Fairview and Mt.
JTe^sant need far more street improve-
luont, electric light extension and water
service than the other sections of the
pity, as both those wards are rapidly
growing and being settled. Heretofore
fhe words in the down-town port of the
.city have share iiliked in the appropriations bat we believe the time has como
when greater discrimination in this
matter tk.uld be exercised.
