THE HEIRESS OF GRAYSTONE HALL
m ii *]
By LAURA JEAN LIBBEY.
Author  of "A Breiken Betrothal," "The Heiress of
Cameron Hall," " Parted at the Altar," Etc.
0m
"Bravo!" exclaimed Fenton. enthusiastically, while tl e old sex-
tor, nml llis good wifo stood liy
IU orcn mouthed amiizemout at the
transformation. "I woulel defy any
one to recognize cither oi vou.
1 believe we are all ready now.
The horso and sleigh n»i'e at t lie
door. You will have to tako yonr
wifo on vour lap, I'ierpont, as the
cutter isn't oxtm commodious."
When tho parting with the An ler-
sons was over, and vows of ulor-
nal secrecy exchanged' the blessings mul "Qod protect und speed
.eon" given, the trio took their
departure.
Only Lo Iloy nnel Fenlon t'eu'i.'cd
the' terrible danger of nn encounter thoy ran.
Le Roy was trembling with ox-
e-itenie'iit, nnel Fenton, who was
white to the lips, kept a sharp
lookout.
But nonnylin. poor un'.'Onscious
soui, so glad to lie with her darling young husband again, and never
realizing her peril, kept up n brisk
conversation, breaking now und theu
into a peal of laughter, whlih Le
Ke>y was always careful to instantly
duck, until, with a pout, she nestled bnck in his strong, protecting
arms, declaring him "qdito Blum,
Indeed."
How con... he' in mercy warn her
of their peril,' end fill her with Wild
alarm?
Let her enjoy each moment of hnp-
pini'ss she could, for Heaven knows
lie expected each to be her Inst.
But he lina'ly made up his mind
that the man who took her from
him should wnlk over his dead bodv
to do it, nnel take her from arms
that were cold in death, and from
a benrt that had ceased to be'iit Willi
th. throb of life.
The sleigh bells had been removed.
and no sound save the horse's hoots
broke the stillness of the hjght.
Both I.o Hoy nnel Fenton had
pru.yeel for darkness, but no; as
the clouds rolled back, p, new moon
shone forth that dimly lighted
the  earth,   nnd ns  he  saw  it, l.o
Roy's heart sun!e; with a foreboding of Impendlifg evil he could not
shake oil.
CHAPTER XXII.
Despite the nervous fears onlcrttiin-
c'd b.v Le Roy and his friend, they
succeeded In'reaching their destination in safely.
They fmni the furnished rooms

"I shall try not to forget, de-ar,"
said llonnylin, ponltcntly. " Hut
these four little wee rooms, not one
of them scarcely big enough to

me much of th. wny poor, pretty

They . sat together by the urate

tho servant.
"Wc may spend to-morrow in ouch

length; "but after thnt. 1 must

"Let us call each other by our

"All right, Ri'.x," she said demurely.    "I'm ngreo-.iblc."
"I never knew the time when you
were not," cried the young husband,
clasping her passionately in his arms
and pissing the rosebud mouth over
uud over ngnin.
The next day passed all too quickly
and on the following morning, ne-
cordlng to tire strict program luld
out, I-o Hoy Pierpont, the handsome
debonair heir to a million, went out,
heavily disguiseel, to search for work,
which he easily procured, es hi
thought ho should, In nn adjacent

"Have Utile to say to these neighbors," warned I<e Roy as ho kissed
her good-bye. "Rpmohibcr, they arc

them civilly and pleasantly, but mind

with amusing dignity, "I never knew

"Your faults—ns you call them —

arms; "and deafer to me Chun any

llis coaxing, winning smile nnd caresses molted h'-r liioiui n'e.ry petul-

"Now mind, elniiin ,'." he i\h sper-
etl ns Hi'v parted, "Keep hwav from

monil.ei', those are m.v solemn, warn-

CotluyJ n promised faithfully and
h. took h.s leave. The long hours of
tic forenoon dragged by slowly enough. There were no books to rend,
uo piano, of course, with which to
while nwny the hours, no fancy
work to employ the restless liitlo
white hands, and llonnylin felt desperately lonely.
If it hail not been for the solemn
promise Lc Hoy hnd in .ctcei of her
sho would, most assuredly, hivegono
to tho nearest hows-stah.l for the latest number of some magazine Whilo
she was devoutly with ng somethin't
would happen to break tho loneliness, something did happen.
Sho was startled by a loud rap on
the door.
Jn answer to Bonnylin's "eome in"
flic door opi nod, nntl n tall, fair-
haired, handsome yoin; girl showily
dressed stepped into the room, bearing a large white bowl in her hands.
"Allow tne to Introduce myself,"
she said, thanking Bonnylin for her
proffered seat as she took it. "I am
Kuto Morgan; our folks have the
rooms across the hall. I should liko
to lie neighborly, and have hoped to
mako overtures toward friendship by
bringing you a bowl of nice hot
soup."
"I am sure I 'cm very much obligeel
to you," said llonnylin, taking the
bowl from her hands.
"Who was that young gin'.leninn I
met coming out of 1 his room this
morning?" nskod Kate, wl.h ill-bred
familiarity.
Bonnylin started at t'c point-blank
question, but answered directly:
"My brother—Hex.'j
"Your—brother!" cried Kate Morgan, delightedly, with a decided simper and giggle, "1 di".i't know but
what he might be your husband. Do
yeni know, although I ought to lie
afhamed lo own it. I'm awfully glad
to find out he's your brothel', lie's as
har.d-ome as a prince, and just tho
style of a young mun 1 nili-c."
"Yes," snid Bonnylin faintly, lectin', thnt sho was called upon lo Pay
something ami not. knowing exactly
what she ought to say.
"I hear that he bus found employment in the same mill where I work
—the Empire mill." pursued Kate.
llonnylin nodded.
"l!o'll lind a set of jolly girls and
fellows there-, if he's inclined to. be
sociable," Kate went on, with a toss
of her yellow head. "There's dances
every night somewhere nnd wo all
go—nil of us, mill hands; your brother dances don't he?"
"I—I don't quite know," faltered
Bonnylin, flushing painfully.
"I could got you into the way of
having guy times this winter if you
could  bring  it  nround  so  thnt     ho
eoulel    take mc  I could find somo
one to take you along with us," said
Kate,   boldly.
The proposition    Staggered Bonnylin. Oh! how she longed wilh nil her
; henrt to turn  with  haughty dignity
i to this strange girl who wns talking
' to her with such Unwarrantable fnm-
iliarity,     mid    sny:  "The gentleman
, you refer to is my husband, madam,"
I As it was, she answered a little chil-
I lily:  "Hex docs not euro for tho   society of young ladies."
"Fiddlesticks!  That's whnt all the
young fellows think  until  ihey meet
j the    right    one,"   Kate     responded
promptly.  "I must run back to   tho
j mill—the noon hour is almost up. Bo
j sure und speak a good word for mu
to your hundsomo brother.   I'll  run
In to sec you this evening, nnd you
shall  introduce us.    I can spend nil
my evenings with you, if you like, to
keep you from getting lonesome, you
know."
llonnylin looked nt the girl nghnst,
Here was a new trouble in this hnv-
I en of rest she had found thnt     she
never would have dreamed of.
"What a stiff,   prudish  little thing
that is!" thought Knto Morgan,    as
Bhe    htlrricd     back to the mill.        I
sliu'n't  like her—ln fact. I lutto her!
I She tries to be so stuck up, but     I
suppose 1 .hall huve to endure   her
on   account of bev handsome brother,
' whom 1 fell In love with on sight.
If t should marry him—and 1 never
failed yet iu getting that on     Which
I I set, my henrt—I'd  turn that sister
! of his out ' of ihose rooms quickor
than a flush of chain lightning! No
doubt she'd like him to marry some
lino ludy Instead of a working girl,
the  Impudent  thing!   I'll  show      her
' what's what!
| "I'll hear whnt she has to loll
about mo whin he' gets home tonight. She'll never dream of mo listening at the keyhole!" " chuckled
Kate, again tossing hor yellow
braids,
The winter dny drew to a closo
early, and shortly after the factory
whistle had blown sharply, nnnoi nc-
ing the hour of si::. 1 e Hoy runic

On the upper landing a tall, flashily dressed girl run directly into his

gravo,   courteous  bow,  and    passed

The door of his nf)arimoht had

tinguished the gaslight in the hall,

CHAPTER XXIII.
With breathless Interest, and quivering wilh repressed excitement, ths
eavesdropper who crumbed at Bonnylin's door in the darkened hall lls-
leneel.
She heard the words, "My darling," nnd lookinj through the keyhole she saw tlio handsome young
fellow clasp the slender littlo figure
tenderly in his arms and rain pns-
sie:n-ito kisses down upon her up-
turnoel face until the cried out for
mercy.
Then, us is proverbially the case,
the listener henrd lillle good ot herself. I
She heard the "sisicr" tell him of
the lold forward girl ncross the l-all
who had designs upi n him, and with
whom she could foresee th'y wi're
to have no ond of trouble, for sho
hull ilecbireel lur intention ot p'ussiug
her eveiiin.'.s witli  them.
"On sue-ii iKca-;ioi.s I will be sure
to retire to m.v room wiih littlo
coroiiiony," laughed Le Hoy, tro.it-
ing the matter lightly and gi o I n.i-
ttiredly. "I th.'n!:, ihoicili, my duii-
in.r, that you rather overdraw this
young woman's apparent infatuation," ho added, gravely.-
Bonnylin shook her curly head.
"I havo not, dear," she declared;
"nnd I repeat, this troublesome
neighbor will prove a formidable nuisance." I
The eavesdropper waited to hoar
nn moro.
Smarting with rage nnd burning
with mortification nt thu "setting
out" tho "sister" had given her, sho
glided awny, muttering bitterly to
herself:
"You havo mado an enemy for
yourself to-nfght, Lorlie Belmont
and 1 shall be even with you if it
takes a lifetime."
An hour later she presented herself, with her face wreathed in smiles,
at Bonnylin's door.
Of course there was nothing to do
but to invito her in, and this Bonnylin did with the grace natural to
her.
Kate realized tho desire of her
heart in receiving an introduction to
the handsome young fellow who had
so Completely captivated her fancy;
but her anger knew no bounds when
he excused himself a few moments
Intel' and did not reappear during
tho rest of the evening.
' Kate hael always ruled right royally among the employes of- the mill.
Thero was not oue young mnn among
thom who was not the pretty flirt's
most abject slave.
, lt piqued her wonderfully to see
this handsome stranger, whom sho
had vowed to herself she had fallen
in love with at first sight, so coolly
Indifferent to her charms.
Tho coquettish looks she gave him
from beneath her yellow lashes    did
not seem to iiffect him in the least;
yet      she       knew      ho      was      by
no       means       cold       and       hardhearted', judging from       tho
tenderness ho had displayed ln greeting "his sister." Yet why wns     his
heart, so cold to her, she wondered?
I     Miss Morgnn found no other   sub-
ject agreeable save the discussion of
I ..orlio's     handsome brother;      what
! young  girls ho hud  met,  if ho liked
nny of them, or kept company   with
any of them.
All this, naturally enough, worked
' Bonnylin up to quite a pitch of nervousness, although she could not
really blame this glii, for was she
not. of tho impression that ho was
Unmarried nnd free to woo and win
any girl if ho should tako a fancy to
, her?
I Ia: Roy, hearing all this from tho
next room, pitied poor Bonnylin's
embarrassment more thnn tonguo
could tell, and vowed grimly to himself that he would soon change all
that by hinting to Miss Morgan that
he was already engaged. I
Ho managed to bo present the next
' evening when Knto called, casually
remarking during the conversation
that bo respected all ladies highly
for the sake of ono who, several
months before, had told . him sho
would be his bride, and whom he
loved with nil his heart.
| "I do not believe it," remarked
j Knto to her mother, when sho re-
I turned to her own apartments, and
related all that hud passed. "I do
not believe he has a sweetheart," sho
declared. "If ho had, sho would be
sure to write to him, if sho is not in
t'to lily. Tho postman brings him
i.o letters—the carrier told mo so
himself—nnd ho never goes out of an
evening to visit any girl. I tell you
the sweetheart is a myth—he simply
said Hint, to draw me on.
Much to Le Roy's amazement, oven
after this conversation, Miss Kate
still continued to bring the wholo
artillery of her eh inns to bear on
him.
Coming to nnd going from tho mill,
she was always on hand to bear him
company. Ho could not step Into
the stroet without seeing her. and to
mnko   affairs still moro maddening,
every  evi ning found Miss  Kate      In
Bonnylin's   apartments.
"Wus over n mnn so tormented before?" ho would nsk himself often.
"I cnn scarcely find time for a quiet
talk with my wife nny more," and
something like an imprecation was
ground through his white to.th.
Neither coldness, stillness nor
frowns were of uny avail in changing
Kale's fixed determination of marrying him, even though he hnlad her.
In her blind, adoring love for him,;
she would hnvo pursued him through -
the gates of death if that could havo
won him. I
With such a fierce, desperate, bold
love there was little ehunce of escape for its object. All this was harassing in the extreme to sensitive
little Bonnylin. Tho girl's open admiration for "Ilex" filled her 'withi
disgust nnd disomy nnd heart pungs
Innumerable.
-•Thero Js but ono_wny_out of   It,"
'Fenlon to-night, rind ho will try tind { "Why do you ask Hint?" hs said,
arrange It for us. This place hns more to gain time to do a little
boon a safe refuge for us, and I rapid thinking in this desperate
dread to leave lt, to fnce dangers, strait than caring how sho would
perhaps, thnt I know not of.   Still, ' answer him.
uneler the circumstances,  we must."  I     "If she is not your sister,"     cried
Le Roy was colder, sterner,      und   Koto Morgan, with rising wrath, "1
more haughty than ovor to Miss
Morgan that day. Still, it seemed'
utterly Impossible to evade her; she
overtook him on his way home from
insist,  out of respect to  the    ladles
beneath this roof, that she be turned out into the street at once."
"You shall have your way,      Miss
the mill;  and although ho  answered   Morgan," ho said, wilh' forced cnlm-
her questions curtly, and almost in
monosyllables, she persisted in following him into his apartments, under the pretense of seeing his sister.
Ix! Roy left them together,     whilo
ness,  "I will tako her eeweey     from
hero within the hour."
This turn of tilTairs by no means
pleased Kate. Sbe could conceive no
horn       greater    than losing       this
ho went out to seek Fenton.   It was   handsome idol whom she worshipped
a hazardous undertaking to VOntun
into the aristocratic portion of tho
city where he was so well known,
but it could not be helped. He dare
not trust all ho would suy to writing.
"I shall not be gone very long,"
said Lc Roy, pausing on the threshold, nnd giving Bonnylin a meaning look. "Good-bye."
"Good-bye," she repeated, looking
at him with a smi!_.
Then he passed out of her sight.
Half nn hour or more Kate    Morgnn sat by the glowing grate tnl lag
to Bonnylin    of Indifferent subject..,
when suddenly she nsked.:
"Kayo you one ei the 1001-111111 p.i-
rersv i'u iii.c eo lu'uk over it a moment."
"iVe ta'.c no par.Crs," said To ny-
lin, helming her face lower o.er the
fancy work she hiiel In h.r baud.
"Gracious _go. d -si. ih, u ,.0. o..n't
know anything Hint is going 01
the worm. 1 djn't suppose you havo
hoard, Hi n, the story of the bi'aiiti-
ful g.'rl that Wa: nmxlei'i'd at a ball
b.v  a jealous bride'."
Bonnylin dropped hrr work with a
startled cry, i ni her fnce turned
ghastly white underneath its dark
stain.
"Oh, it's^a wonderful story," continued Kate; "why, the pnpers havo
been full of it those two months past.
As I wus saying, after killing the
beautifin girl nt the ball, the young
bride nnd her husband fleel. She was
afterward seen by the police in a
sleigh accompanied by a man mufll-
cd to the chin; the polire gave chase,
but they elid not succeed in taking
her. They have been hunting her
down liko ferrets ever fclnce."
"Do they think thi.—the briele committed that murder?" gas pod Bonnylin,  in unspeakable horror.
"Why, of course, everything goes
to show that sho was the guilty
one," returned Kate Morgan, complacently; "why, the dying girl's
lust words conelemnt'd her. She licensed her of it before all the people
at the grand bull. It Will go hard
with her if she's caught, 1 cnn tell
you. All the aristocrat's money
can't save her. Nobody suspect 1 el lur
of being wicked enough, this dainty
bride to commit such a crime. Tho
papers say she was as beautiful us n
dream, with a fnce like a (lower ami
hair like spun gold, wliilo her eyes
were like blue-bells steeped in dew."
Bonnylin hail arisen to her feet
and stooel before her.
"What would Ihey do with the
poor bride if thoy found her, do you
suppose?" she asked, in a voice liko
nothing human, it was so wildly unnatural, like a voice from the tomb.
"Suppose," repeated Kato. "I
don't havo to suppose. 1 know what
they would do with her. Ask every
child you mee.'t em the street, and
they will tell you whnt the newspapers and the people havo declared all
along, sho woultl hang 0:1 the gallows for murder, Just as sure as
fate."
"Oh, no, no!" cried Bonnylin, with
a wild, shrill, piercing cry.
The fancy work fell from hor nerveless littlo bunds to the lloor, the
room seemed to roack nround her,
end the lire in the grate to hiss nud
liluzo; then sudelenly to die out, leaving her in the durkost gloom. She
tried to speak', but her tongue cloeo
to the roftf of her mouth.
A sudden roaring filled her cars
like that of far-off waters, nnd
through it, nil she heard those terrible words ringing, like a doathr
luioll, in her curs: If they caught her
(hey would hang her on the gallows
lor murder.
With a gasping, shuddering cry,
sho fell on her face to the lloor In a
deadly swoon.

I/C Hoy snld nt the end of tho first
furtii i_.ht, "nnl Hint Is, to move
from these rooms to sonic other locality, it would noVCr ilo to make
un tnutty of Hint girl—she would
hound 11 man down to his doom."
"1 nm so tired of Ihis masquerading," sighed Bonnylin, piteous.}',
-"Oh, my darling, I am sure I cannot waif patiently until tlie real
murderer of poor India is foirtul, to
take my rightful place in the world
again."
"You must Wait, eleur," he answered huskily. "All this is far more
painful to 1110 Ihnn to "OU, but wo'

Kate Morgan sprung to her feet In
the greatest .dismay.
"What in the world is the matter
with the girl?" she cried,     stooping |
over  the prostrate  forth,   "I   wonder j
why   tho  story   of   thut  young   bildu
affected her so?"
Quickly raising the slight form ln
her urms, sho bore her to a lounge
und laid her upon it.
A buttle of ammonia stood on the
shelf. Hastily" dropping a few drops
of It into a basin of water, she seized a towel and commenced laving tho
face of the unconscious girl.
Tho fuel, hands und hnlr were
bathed briskly to start the circulation of blood, when, lo! a strange
thing happened under Iho net ion of
the strong ammonia: Hie el.irk stnin
commenced to quickly disappear
from both laco nnd hnir.
The inlenso astonishment of Kate
Morgan knew no  bounds,
"Grout Heaven!" she cried nghnst,
"she is not dark; her face is 11s fair
as a lily ami her hnir is beautiful
and golden. The girl is in disguise!
What dark mystery Is this? I will
find It out If II costs nn m.v life!"
A sudden suspicion crossed her
mind that the girl was not what
Bhe represented herself to bu.
At this critical moment I.e Roy
Plcrpont entered the room; 0110

over his heart,
He stood motionless, elumb — liko
ono turned to marble in n single Instant of horror.
And in that moment Kate Morgan
recovered herself.
"Who Is. this girl?" she cried, advancing (jownrd him with a steely
.glitter iii' her pule blue oyrs; "can
you explain the meaning of this masquerading in an honest, respectable
neighborhood?"
lie tiled to speak, but no sound
issued from his lips — the horror of
the situation appalled him so cruelly that he wns dazed.
"I du not lielieve this girl is your
sister, as you hnvo represented lur
to be," Kate Went on, with fl.athln;
Wl-aih, horn of intense Jealousy. "I
shall find out beforo I rest to-nl(_llt,
who nnd what that girl is."
1.0 Hoy stepped up to the girl nnd
laid his hand on her arm.
"Hush! lor the Iovo of Heaven,
don't speak so loud," ho Implored,
"you will arouse tho whole house."
"That Is what I intend to do," sho
cried, "and we -till soon unearth this
mystery, I ask you a fulr question;
is this girl In truth your sister, or
l_ si.e not?"
so madly, in this fashion. Sho would
rather have seen him lyiiu d.ad at
hor feet, than ses him el part with
the girl whom she now believed to
bo her rival.
"Send her off by horsolf!" she retorted bitterly, "attempt to u hold
nm! shield her and I will publi. 11 t lis
scandalous proceeding to U10 v.otld."
At tl.is moment Bonny I ns 1 luo
eyes opened slowly, and she u'ung o it

i     As  Kate Hung o, en the d lor       to

, she found  quite a crowd  pf    curious
eavesdroppers gathered about the
door attracted by tho sound of her
high-pitched, angry voico. Among
the number, much to her delight,
stood a blue-coaud denizen of     t.ic

I To them Kate repented the whole

j cause of the girl's  deadly faint—th"

In the interior of the room all wns
dire confusion; Ie Hoy was hastily
pacKing a few U-Cossnry articits together, urging upon poeir stricken
Donnylin     the    necessity of Instant

"All will yet be well, my diilin;,"
he whispered, trying to infu.'o her
with courage to nuet the ten-ill.
emergency wiih which they Wire
brought face to face.
"Sho has discovered mc—she has re-
COgnirod me," Bonnylin cried out
gn:. ■ gly, clinging to him In the

"It is not so bad as that, d nr,"
ho repllctl, "but to pie.e'.t anything serious from oct-nri-it \ n iw
thnt she suspects you uro not my

There was no time to prepnre a

gathering up the few articles he lind
collected, drew her out of an i pp. s-

Hailing a coupe just pnaslng, he
thrust Bonnylin into it, and sjrint

"IKive as quickly us possible       to

Mr. Adam McMillan, tho proprietor
and editor eif tho Vlrdon Advance, is
in some respects one of the most Interesting figures in Western Canadian
life. I'ew, even among the many-'
phased men of the West, e-nti bo'com-
parod with him In point of the variety and the success of his activities. ll»e bus been a blacksmith a
surgeon, n soldier and an editor,
and in intervening intervals ninny
other things besides. In most eif
these ho bus been conspicuously successful, nnel even in those in wbicli
good fortune was not so pronounced
no absolute! fnlltiro can bo recorded

heudyd, progressively conservntivo by
temperament, experimental by disposition, tnking liitlo or nothing on

or mailer, his habit of mind is ns
I'ssentinlly open nnd unprejudiced us
his courage is unquestioned, Mr. McMillan is n picturesipie figure, from
whatever aspect of his personaltly
he is regarded, It is undoubtedly ns
n soldier Hint he hns hitherto bulked
largest in the popular estimation,
i'he family of which Mr. McMillan
is 11 member is, in some respects, 11

their sympathies, without iu ono

Hence, in ull rcferene-es to the "hind

When you liave to use hard water it is not en easy matter to wash
household utensils. To do good washing you should have pood soap
and soft water (rain water). If you use hard water you must have
good soap, and the best soap you can get is Sunlight Soap because it
softens the hard water and makes a copious creamy lather. Use Sunlight Soap for all household purposes and the results will surprise you.

deeper significance than a more reputation pi-esoryatlve; the keeping of il
helps to conserve the moral well-being
of the community. The effect upon
adults as well as ypntlis of apparent
"breaches of 'the commandments, even
when the nctors in the affair aro innocent, is harmful, as is the effect ef
wrongdoing, always. Even the humblest person who commits a sin, or
places himself iu au equivocal position,
