NAPIER & PARTRIDGE.  ameammrmmmmemamm  *s~������j A Made-to-  Order-Scoop  By  Robert J. C. Stead,  Cartwright, Man.  The November day had been dull  and uneventful, and the office of the  Telegraph as much a-drowse as the  home of a modern daily may be. Not  an Item in the despatches would warrant a double-column head, and the  telegraph editor opined that the boys  of the Associated Press had got '"religion." Copy that had been side-tracked weeks ago was leaded out under  heavy tops, and the locals were padding their dish-water stories shamelessly. The *id-man had run in a full-  page "quack" Qff-date on his own responsibility, and was willing to take  chances on a kick. It was a dull day.  Aleck McLean, editor and principal  owner of the Daily Telegraph, button-  ed his' overcoat snugly at the first  rumble of the press, pocketed a copy  at the mailing counter, and stepped  into the street, well content with the  prospect of a long evening at home.  But he had not gone a dozen paces ere  the sixth sense of his newspaper instinct became aware that there was  something afoot in the mental atmosphere. Little knots of men stood  about, conversing excitedly, or studying an evening paper. Those who  walked, walked briskly, as if agitated  by the import of something unusual.  Suddenly a number of boys from the  office of the Evening News scattered  through the street, shouting lustily,  "Special! Extra! All about th' great  murder- Evenin' News! Only paper  has it! Ex-tr-a-a! Ex-tr-a-a!"  McLean seized a copy from the nearest boy and spread it out before him,  ignoring in his excitement the urchin's  vigorous demands for payment. Plastered over its front.page, with a seven-  column heading, his rival sheet bore  the information of the newsiest crime  the city had afforded in half a dozen  years. And just as he held the paper  at arm's length the rival editor came  up, smiled knowingly, and passed on.  -���������Crumpling���������the-���������sb.eet_in_his_hand,,  McLean rushed for the office of the  Daily Telegraph, nor paused for breath  or counsel until he burst into the  quarters of the astonished reporters.  "Gentlemen," said he, with a calmness of speech that was in remarkable  contrast with his agitated appearance,  "I just dropped in to remark that if  any of you are interested in the events  of the city you had better buy a copy  of the Evening News before going to  prayer-meeting to-night, Read that!"  he blazed suddenly, slapping a paper  onto the table. "I'm going down to  the kindergarten to engage a few reporters."  "Well, I'll be agitated!" exclaimed  ���������Charlie Hughes, after the Irate editor  ���������had withdrawn, and a glance had taken  to the gist of the headlines.  "You certainly,,w-.i, if Dad feels no  better iu the morning," said Denny  Morrison. Heigho! and I intended to  unsoak my fur coat this month."  "Did you ever hear about Horace  Greeley," said Harry Temple, the  Btory-toller of the gang, "and the���������-"  "Certainly, we all know the incident," interrupted Hughes.  Just thon tho telephone bell rang,  *inu" the Evening News inquired tenderly if they wore awake yet.  "Just had a nightmare," replied  Morrison. "Who pumped you full of  that fake?    Thoy tried to work It on  us too, but "  "Fake be d ' 'was   the   reply.  "That yarn is meat to tho heals. By  tho way, McLean says he ls going to  tire Ms wholo caboose When do you  intend to move?"  "vlvruy man skins bis own skunk,"  mild Alirrlson as ho hung up his receiver.  Next morning the assignment book  contained tlio following notice: "Family prayers In Mr, McLean's ofllco at 10  a. m."  Tlto reporters, openly defiant or Indifferent, but inwardly much concerned, fylod into the chief's office at the  appointt>d time. ...cboan was grave,  out ���������dlspHHHlowito. IIo explained how  Keenly ho felt the dlsgraco of yesterday nnd plr-fiired vividly tha gloating  of tbo News. Never before had ho  suffered such Ignominy; never again  must it, occur. Ho had intended to  revfuo bin whole staff, but had reconsidered it���������for tho present. Ho had a  now idea. He would pay one hundred  Uollura cash to tho reporter furnishing the noxt local murder story,���������provided wiey scooped the News.   That  could suggest a suspicion to the most  fantastic imagination was fully investigated. Morrison spent his substance  in refreshing the police force, in exchange or a guarantee, of a straight  tip on the next murderous event,  temple made moonlight sorties far  Into the country. Graham cultivated  the acquaintance of the tough characters of the city. Barker bribed the  reportorial force of the News to keep  mum on the next scrape. But the  city was disgracefully law abiding,  and nothing worse than the usual  routine of drunks and vagrants disturbed the solemn atmosphere of the  [police court. *  But most remarkable of all had  been the actions of Charlie Hughes.  Shortly after the interview with the  chief he had made the acquaintance of  one Basil Murdoch, an old man ot j  doubtful nationality, and reported to  be a miser. Basil existed in a very  disreputable den in the midst of tne  toughest part of the city, and night  after night he and Hughes rendered  the air discordant with their drunken  caterwaulings. In those orgies the  reporter was merely an actor, as he  had too much head to surrender It to  alcohol; but Basil drank best on Charlie's encouragement, and Basil drank  only at Charlie's expense,-���������-and what  was a roistering song or two If it  made happy the heart of an old man?  One night after their acquaintance  had ripened sufficiently Charlie approached his purpose.  "You say you are hard up, "Uncle?"  he ventured.  "Aye, hard It is, boy," was the reply.  "Afore ye took pity o' me many the  day Ah sat with neither bite nor sup.  And what's an old man in this world?  Well would it be rid o' me."  "Have you no friends anywhere?"  "Well, now, as Ah might say, Ah  have a brother in Sheecago. Him Ah  haven't seen for years, bein' without  the price o' travel. A>eed, and it's a  hard world, at all.   Pass the bottle."  When Basil had refreshed himself  Charlie again spoke. "I've been thinking of your lonely life ever since I  met you, and It grew upon me that I  ought to do something for you. Folks  say that you are a miser, tuat your  tick is lined with bills, but I don't believe a word of it. I'm going to help  you to visit your brother this Christmas."  Basil looked about him in a frightened sort of a way and muttered incoherently. The thought of departure  ,seemedJo_filiJhJSLJ"^^  of dread, and the livid hlotches of his  face had given way to .dull pallor.  Charlie ventured, "Of course, . 1  would see tbat your place was properly looked after. I haven't much money  but I could get you a ticket and provide a bit to spend. And Chicago's  the finest place in the world for a man  with the dough."  "Ah've hearn different from that,"  said the old man dubiously.  "Well, at any rate it's tbe worst  place in the world for a man without  the dough," laughed Charlie, "and that  amounts to the same thing."  It was not until after much argument, in which Charlie���������-who never  and being tbere���������pictured the attractions of Chicago in the most glowing  terms, and explained how easy it  would bo, with the help of the city  directory, for Basil to And his brother,  that tho old man finally agreed to the  proposal. The night was far spent before every detail had been arranged,  but when at length Charlie arose to  go he said, "Well then, that's all settled. I'll meet you here at ten tomorrow night with twenty dollars.  Yoii can jump tbe midnight freight  going south, and buy a ticket when  they put you off, It's no use paying a  railway company any more than you  have to���������It's a simple waste of money.  When you got to Chicago hire a loci-  box at the postofllce and wire me the  number, nothing moro, nothing less-  no name, mind you���������and call for your  mail onco a day. Follow my directions  and you'll wear diamonds, and I'll  split a pot of money with you when  you got bnck."  "Sooins a mighty quare way to visit  mo brother," said Basil, still not  wholly decided.  "It Is that," admitted Charlie, "but  folks havo strange customs nowadays. I'm paying tho money, and 1  want you to bo up to tho times. You  will ho my guest, In a sense, and you  must travel in stylo."  Hughes had to do a Christian Endeavor convention next day, and the  leaden hours dragged through In dull  monotony. But night found him alert  and active, A number of visits had  to ho mado to dlfforont parts of tho  city before his plans wero complete,  and tho last of thoso found lilm at a  poultry dealer's. Here, somewhat to  tho sitrprlso of tho shopman, he bought  two livo roosters, which ho thrust into an empty bran sack, and departed.  It was (mowing a little as ho wended  tits wnv to Basil's hut.   "A fine night  Doiviys  KIUNEY  ^, PILLS,  ly1;.KIDNEY t)L  everybody in Chicago would take him  for a miser if he wore a beard, he  submitted to the operation. His long  hair was then sheared and bis figure  generally "slicked" up, and while his  appearance could not yet be described  as respectable, it was much less disreputable than before. Charlie then,  took him to the freight yards, trundled  him into an empty box-car, tipped a  brakeman a dollar, and hastened back.  Basil's door was locked, but the reporter battered it in with a cordwood  stick. Bringing in the captive roost-.  ers, he threw back the sheets of the  bed, laid the sack upon it, and with  some difficulty beheaded the unfortunate inmates. As he did so one of them  escaped from the sack and caromed  about tlie room, spattering the floor  and walls with lood, while the red  liquid from the other saturated the  bed of Basil Murdach. With his knife  Charlie then ripped open the, tick,  ransacking the straw and littering it  about the room; later he explored  every nook and cranny in the building leaving everything in a state of  confusion. At length, returning the  escaped rooster to the sack, he filled  in also a quantity of coal and Basil's  axe, and set forth to drag it to the  river. The task was no easy one, as he  avoided the open thoroughfares and  made his way by deserted lanes and  tortuous alleys, but at length the white  ice of the river spread out before him  like a mighty sheet. To hack a hole  through the ice was the work of a  few minutes, and axe, sack, and contents were swept down into the sucking blackness. "Now to thy lair, O  murderer!" exclaimed Hughes, and  sped for home.  "I want the whole front page," said  Hughes to the chief the following  morning, as he flung a roll of copy on  the desk.  "So did Peruna, but they didn't get  it," quietly answered McLean. "Why  man, what's the matter with you?"  "Read that," answered the reporter  as he indicated his copy with an air  of Important mystery.  McLean glanced indifferently at the  words until every sense bristled.  Eagerly his trained eye devoured the  context, and when a score of pages  were scanned he turned to Hughes.  "Is this absolutely straight?"  "Absolutely," said Hughes, without  flinching.  "I'll just call fhe police department."  ���������aid the editor, as he reached for the  telephone. ,,  "Sh-h, don't wake 'em" interrupted  "ChaTlier���������'Eet-'em-read-it-in-the-Tele-  graph. You remember how they used  us l������ist ������iiiiG*'"*  ' "Very weli," replied the editor.   "Is  the News onto this?"  "Not a whisper."  "Then, if they don't get on there'll  be a cheque for you la the morning.  You may take the day off; you must  have worked all night."  Not a word of the great sensation  leaked onto the street, and the Telegraph edition was purposely delayed  until the News was on sale. But as  soon as a copy of the rival sheet had  been obtained and found to contain  nothing but commonplace, the press  was set in motion, and the Evening  Telegraph literally flooded onto the  streets.  It was the greatest scroop ever  achieved In the city, It scooped not  only the rival paper, but everybody  else, for not an Inkling of tbe crime  had got afloat until the Telegraph laid  it bare in plot, and execution, painted  in all the lurldness of sensational  journalism.  "Hello! Hello! Is that tho Telegraph? This Is the.police station.  Can you put us onto anything more  than was In this evening's paper?"  "Woll, I hardly know. You see, the  reporter who furnished the story is  out."  "Whore Is ho?   Who Is he?"  "Hughes, but don't know where he  is.   Got the day off."  A couple of pollcomen wont to the  scone of tho crime, and others set out  In search of Hughes. They found him  nt his boarding house.  "You honor me, gentlemen," he remarked, as tho officers woro shown  Into his quarters. What ls the charge?"  "Oh���������-or, you misunderstand. You  see, wo are working on this murder,  nnd wo thought perhaps you could put  us onto Honiothlng."  "I can, too. I can put you onto the  fact that you sold tho Inst murder to  the News, and loft the Telegraph to  oat mud.   Now, grovel I"  "Woll, ah���������or, that's hardly fair, you  know, Besides, we'll bo decout with  you,"  At other times Charlie would havo  taken the hint quickly enough, but ha  was lord of the situation, and be enjoyed It.  "Gentlemen," he said, with ponder-  ous dignity, "I am not a man to be  bribed. Nolther am I a policeman. I  am a reporter.   Good evening."  Tho officers,   thus   summarily dls-  "\z rtrcct  secretly cntertrtlnln'*: iho lieiw that n  man who know so much about the  crime, and would say so little, was not  tlmo to-morrow night! Heigho! won't I above suspicion,  this tnko the bulge out of tho News? But the first thing now was the re-  Ami IUm ".ulivw vlv^.U.u;:!: Oh ^.[fovory nf thn body, and a gang of  my! tho police department!" ho re-'laborers were mt to cut the lee and  poated in a paroxysm ot mirth.

The doctor pronounced it a bad case as I had no  power In my tongue or left leg. I remained in that position for six months  without obtaining benefit from the  doctor's prescriptions or other medicines.  "My husband advised me to try Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food and by the use of  this treatment all symptoms of the  disease disappeared.

In'  the morning be had been put off the  freight, and had bought a ticket for  Chicago at a country station. The  police had thus traced him to the  great city, where they at length succeeded in locating him, and were now  bringing their prisoner back to stand  his trial.  The effect of this despatch upon  Charlie Hughes is for my reader to  imagine. He had fancied that every  development could be provided for,  but Basil's inexplicable failure to wire  Ms box number had compelled him to  leave everything to fate. And fate  was turning its stormy side to Hughes.  The day of the preliminary trial  came on, and public Interest in the  matter, Insidiously fanned by the  newspapers, ran high. Very naturally  the Telegraph manager had selected  Hughes to report the case, and when  ,he_arjlKed_he_tou*lid^  packed. He made his way to the re-  porters' table with a face as white as  If it had been to the prisoner's dock,  and awaited the ordeal.  The magistrate and the lawyers  were already in their places, and presently a hush fell over the assemblage,  A lock clattered sullenly, a heavy door  creaked open, and Basil Murdach was  led into the dock. All eyes were turned on the old man as he tottered unsteadily to his place, and a whispered  comment ran through the building.  The witnesses for the prosecution  were then called. Policemen testified  to details with which the reader is  already familiar;the murder in the hut,  the track to the river, he hole In the  Ice, the slender clues by which the  prisoner was located in Chicago, and  his final arrest.  Neighbors of the unfortunate man  were called, who testified that he  was reputed to be a miser. Some  heard "sounds" on the night of the  tragedy, and one particularly accommodating witness heard shooting,  shrieks, and oaths.  Professor Dickson then took the  stand to dissipate all doubts as to a  murder having been committed. He  entered Into a lengthy explanation of  the chemical composition of blood, and  Illustrated his remarks with many  charts and plates, He had examined  some of tho blood found on the scene  of the tragedy, nnd unhesitatingly  pronounced It to bo that of a human  being advanced In years.  Basil, who had no lawyer, was thon  asked as to whether ho had anything  to say In his own defense. Terror  griped nt the old man's heart, and ho  swayed where he stood, but fear of  death put words In his mouth, nnd ho  told his story simply, eagerly, and with  desporato oarnestnoss, while the court  passed through ovory stago of incredulity, wonder, and nmasoment.

"OariV Predictions hy Foes ot an En-Jj-  lUh Cenau-i BUI.  It was in 1753 that a proposal to  count the people was first made.  Thomas Potter, son of the archbishop  of Canterbury and member for St  Germans, introduced in that year a bill  "for taking and registering an annual  account of tlie total number of the  people and of the total number of  marriages, births and deaths and also  of the total number of poor receiving  alms from every parish aud extra parochial place in Great Britain." It was  Inevitable, of course, that directly this  proposal was made the precedent of  King David should be quoted. And  many were the jeremiads as to the alternative evils which would befall the  country. Those submitted to David  were mild in comparison. Mr. Thornton, member for York city, 6ald:  "I did not believe that there was any  set of men or, indeed, any individual  of the human species so presumptuous  and so abandoned as to make the proposal we have just heard. * * * I bold  this subject to be totally subversive of  the last remains of English liberty.  * * * The new bill will direct tlie imposition of new taxes, and, indeed, the  addition of a very few words will make  ��������� it the most effectual engine of rapacity and oppression that was ever used  against an injured people. ��������� * * More-  , over, an annual register of our people  will acquaint our enemies abroad with  our weakness."  Matthew Ridley, another opposing  member, added that his constituents  "looked on the proposal as ominous  and feared lest some public misfortune  or an epidemical distemper should follow the numbering." However, the  bill passed the commons, only to be  promptly rejected by the lords. Not  until 1800 was the proposal again  made, and on this occasion it was  brought to a successful issue.

But the only one of their contrivances that merits a detailed description was that invented by a Grecian general named jEneas, who flourished in the time of Aristotle, intended  for communication between the generals of an army.  It consisted of two exactly similar  earthen vessels filled with water, each  provided with a cock that would discharge an equal quantity of water in a  given time, so that tho whole or any  part of the contents would escape In  precisely the same period from both  vessels.  On tho surface of each floated a piece  of cork supporting an upright marked  Into divisions, each division having a  certain seutence Inscribed upon It,  Ono of tbe vessels was placed at each  station, and whon either party desired  to communicate ho lighted a torch,  which ho held aloft until tho others did  tho samo, as a sign that ho was all attention.

So a candle was  brought to the bedside and tbe pictures  were held before my eyes as I lay on  my back.    Producing the  first  with  much gusto, the nurse explained that  it was a very pretty picture.   It was.  It showed 'our mortuary chapel,' and  the nurse pointed out the coffins and  a row of shrouds banging up in the  corner, explaining that 'we keep all  sizes in stock.'   The next picture was  'our operating theater,' with the nurse  and the doctor 'just ready to begin,'  and my tormentor was specially proud  of it because the nurse depicted was  herself.   When she pointed out, however, that galoches were worn by the  butcher and his assistant, I endeavored  to pass on as quickly as possible to  the next picture.

Back to I'imlleo and Into bed, shivering betwixt the linen and feathers; up  for o. toilet of the best and neatest,  curling his wig thriftly himself by the  fire, a good breakfast, a coach at noon  with Kennaston castle for goal and  himself and his ardent and blissful  hopes and beliefs for freight and luggage.  For, not twelve hours since, had not  tny Lady Peggy's own emissary, the  delightful "Mr. Incognito," told him  that his mistress was leaving for home  last night? Nay, had not Peggy herself, with her own lips, said that she  started for Kennaston "ere cockcrow,"  and whatever could such words mean  but that he, the object of her tenderest  solicitude, should follow her at once.  Tbat same morning toward dawn  Percy had ridden home alone, leaving  Kennaston, cheered by a smile and a  pressure of Lady Diana's hand, to return to his chambers in Grub street,  "Whither the young poet had removed  some few days since from Lark lane, at  the instance of having0 had a piece of  good fortune in the way of a Commendation from no less a personage than  the great Dr. Johnson himself.  Tha reflections of Peggy's adorer  were various and most tormenting.  His brain, as he tossed in his bed, was  a labyrinth wherein he wandered, vainly endeavoring to solve such riddles  as���������  "Where was Lady Peggy? Was she  Indeed the bride of either of the Sir  Robins? Who wa3 the comely young  gentlemanly rogue who had for weeks  bewitched tbe fair and charmed the  brave? Where had he disappeared?  To whom in reality was he indebted  for the saving of his own life at the  Dove pier, and whose were the St.  Giles' hirelings who had near made an  end of him there?"   Bewildered andat_witsl_end. he final-  ly, as the sun was at meridian, sprang  from his uneasy couch, rang and rapped thrice for Grigson, made a sorry  pretense at conversing on politics with  his uncle," whom he presently encountered In the hall; inwardly cursed the  old gentleman and at last, by 3 o'clock,  got hia will, which was, astride of the  long roan, Grigson on the black, to  cross to the Surrey side of the river  and ride as fast as ever he could to  Kennaston castle.  "By heavens!" cried ho to himself,  pounding Battersea bridge. "It Is tlmo  ber father knew, and her lady mother,  too, that she ls neither in Kent nor anywhere else In their reckoning, and if It  puts 'em both Into their shrouds they'll  hear tbe truth and set about solving the  riddle before sunrise tomorrow. I'm  Bailing on Thursday for tho colonies,  but I go not until I am assured of her  safety and her happiness."  Thus It happened that not above three  hours after Sir Robin had started from  Plmllco with his destination Kennaston, Sir Percy quitted Charlotte street  With tho uuino beacon la view, and  each, tho ono In his coach, t'pthor la  his saddle, brain full and heurt bursting with but ono thought, and that  Lady Peggy Burgoyne.  Hor ladyship meantime, on landing  from tho wherry, fairly scampered hor  way to Mr. Brummel's for four of desperadoes and Mohocks. At ono point  Wild cries of "WatchI" greeted ber cars  from tho open window of a gaming  house, at another a bullet whizzed  above hor head, tho outcome of n duel  being fought la a narrow stroot sho  traversed. In aud out sho threaded hor  path until presently tlio pink flush of  tlio dawn pierced the fog Into a silvery  mist, nnd she hnd gained the Beau's  threshold. Passing tho sleepy servants,  Feggy ran up to hor room and onco  again drew tlio bundle from Its hiding  place, tucked tho long tail of hor dark  hair woll Insklo, wist a glunco of pltlu-  bio amusement about tho chumbcr, und  snys sho, going:  "God knows If I ovor got lonvo to put  ou a ludy'B garments agulti, but I'll  never como Imek hero, that's cortaln,  slnco now am I no one, uot even Sir  itobln McTart!"  So, challenged merely by tho still  drowsy footman who asks, "Beg par-  tinn end with ������--ihml������mlnri, Sir Itobln,  but will you ho homo for dinner, sir, or  not until supper?"  "For neither, today," answers her  ladyship, running out Into rotor's  Court nnd thou coining to a dead halt  fl'io flr-i-iv n In tn' di'eu hr-fiitli nsdeor*  as tho fog would let her, imn-li an a (log  docs before ho starts on the iicent Sho  ���������jingled tho llttlo money left, In her  purse, Riivo her hat thu cock hh hIio beheld n pjisserby nnil struck out for London bridge. Arrival at Surrey eldo,  her ladyship panned to cou^yvt nnd,  wrnppln? herself well In her ���������"���������runlet  clonU, tbo which sho hnd u,*"d nt. the  mnsqnerndo so lately, thereby hiding  ber blue velvet I "leeches, luti.il waist*  conf, point txit'dea, Mechlin luce eravut,  rich coat and Jeweled hilt, houii obtained Lire Ui the oue seated curt of a  country clown who was off for Tooting.  Her ladyship decided very quickly  that '.twas but a necessary precaution  for her to avoid highways, stagecoach^  es and inns of reputation, since probably by this a full description of the  supposed Sir Robin would be word of  mouth from Westminster to Mile End,  and a dozen miles out of town mayhap  a price set upon his head!  Once arrived at Tooting, 'twas her  Intention to double on her tracks, return with 6ome bumpkin's load of vegetables to Garret lane and thence to foot  it across country or by penny's worth  rides with village folk, reaching the  neighborhood of Kennaston perhaps  late that night, or, if she should be  compelled to sleep under some friendly  farmer's roof, at least by the next  high noon.  But her ladyship reckoned, if not  without her hosts, most decidedly without taking count of the weary beast  that dragged her nor yet of any possible fellow guests she might encounter  on arriving at tho Queen and Artichoke  at Tooting.  It was nightfall when, limp and unnerved, a sorry, disheveled appearing  young personage jumped from among  a pile of oat bags and marched boldly  into the parlor of the Queen and Artichoke,  "Was there a chamber to be had?"  For her ladyship plainly saw she must  lie at Tooting and not proceed on her  homeward journey until the morrow.  There was a chamber, an admission  hesitatingly made even at this modest  hostelry to a young gentleman arriving without either servant, luggage,  box, horse, coach or dog, and by means  of a vile rickety little cart. Yet, such  was her ladyship's swagger, notwithstanding a full splash of mud on the  tip end of ber handsome little chin, she  was presently conducted to a decent  chamber upstairs, at the rear, it is true,  yet overlooking the green, where a  game of bowls was in progress and  with a fine trellis, thick with vines,  beneath its small paned window.  Her ladyship had just eleven pence  ha'penny left in her purse, yet, thought  she, refreshed by a good meal and tho  leaving of her weapon as a hostage for  her lodging, she would better eat than  faint tonight, whatever might betide  on the morrow.  While she washed her hands, after  hiding the bundle under the feather  bed���������her���������ladyship���������heard-the-ring-of-  horses' hoofs on the stone pave of tho  inn yard, and her quick ear even detected the fact that one of the steeds  went lame.  She peered out of window and beheld  Sir Percy astride of his own long roan,  with Grigson Just dismounting from the  smoking black.  "This is cursed luck!" mutters the  master aa he himself, out of saddle,  stoops to examine the roan's much  swollen off hind leg.  "It Is, Sir Percy," returns the man,  "but, by your leave, sir, it may be we  can hire a mount hero, although it don't  look too promlsln'."  "Unlikely," says Sir Percy. "Tho  best wo can do Is to He In this hole for  the night, and by a hot poultice aud a  bandage tho roan may be In condition  by tomorrow forenoon."  "Very well, sir. It be a poor placp  of entertainment, Sir Percy, with nn  ordinary at tenpence, sir." Grigson's  tone of derision ls marked by tho guest,  who draws close about her face the  cotton curtain of the upper rear chamber window.  "Will you bo pleased to bo served In  your room, Sir Percy, at once, and of  whatever cun bo had? What wine,  sir?"  "Tut, tut, Grigson. I'll Into tlio ordl-  naryV Off with you to tho stables with  tho roan, rub her down and medicine  her, then to your own suppor in tho  kitchen."  "Host," observes Grigson loftily, as  that worthy obsequiously iipponrs Jn  the yard with au uttendnnt train, as is  customary In welcoming persons of  quality, "Sir Percy do Bohun Iiiib tho  condescension to say he will sup lu the  ordinary, and"���������  Wluitovcr Mr. GrlgKon's further remark may havo Intended to result In  was at this crisis lost to posterity by  such a clattering from up on tho tiled)  rood round the corner of the green lane,  where nestled tho Queen nnd Artichoke,  that every oyo wus turned to behold  such a cloud of dust as Joyed the soul  of bonlfuco, whose tuned Intwlllgoiici"  foresaw a coach and four horses, In tho  light of which Sir Porey do Bohun's  reeking Innio roan nnd III kempt aspect  faded Into ulniost as much Inslg-  nllloiince as had long since tho traveler  who had arrived In tho clown's cart.  Boots ulono was left to guide Sir  Percy to his nimriinunt, whiiu the rest  mado u concerted dash for tho yard  entrance, Just In tlmo to mako their  most profound bows and courtesies bo-  fore u spick llttlo genlleinan who thrust  his Inquiring llttlo head out of window,  keeping his door closed, as ho beckoned  tho landlord to hhn with eager, heavy  eyes well under cover of his pulled  down hut  "What  guests  hnvo you  tonight?"  atdti'd the lltllc t,i-uui-iiiU!i,  At tho very moment he wns pro-  pounding Ids query, *Str Percy, now  sunk to Ignominy even in tlie eyes of  Boots by iijiiii'iiiiilii-,' he would Hip at  tenpence, was bi'lng ushered into an  upper chamber mlj-dulng the wry one  Jn which sat, dejected, robbed of even  the^prospeot of food by ins presence,  Lady Peggy Burgoyne.  "Very few, my lord," answered the  host glibly. "The very best chamber  on the first floor with the sitting room  has been kept for your lordship," applying hand to latch of coach door, the  which, however, is still firmly held by  its occupant.  "Their names?" asks the little gentl***-  man, while at the fleck of one of the  postilion's lashes his wheelers begin to  prance and advance so far into the  yard as that their racket brings Peggy  a second time to her narrow pane,  a-squinting up her eyes to see who this  may be. For, in the midst of her distress, as befalls often enough to all of  us, sho takes unconscious note of minor  happenings, the which those who study  such matters affirm to be proof of the  two sided condition of men's minds.  "Your guests' names?" reiterates tbe  small gentleman as, followed by the  cortege of dame, maid, man, dog, cat  and tame magpie, the coach comes to  a halt within excellent range of her  ladyship's coign of vantage and earshot. "I must know them before I  alight."  "Well, my lord, there's Mr. Bigge, the  curate from Risley Commons, as stops  over here on his way to Finehley every  week; Mr. Blunt, the traveling tailor;  his grace the Duke of Courtleigh's own  mail, off on his holiday; Mr. Townes  and his new married wife a-goin' to  the goodly smells 'from Sir Robin's  fowls, sausages, eggs and fruit pie assail her senses.  Mr. Grlgsou, doctoring the roan, endeavored with much creditable tact to  get wind of the name or title of the  master of the coach, but Sir Robin's  men had had their lesson, and not a  hint was to be got out of either of  them by Mr, Grigson or by the curious  host of the Queen and Artichoke himself.  By 11 every candle was out In the  house. All the guests, save two, slept  the sleep of the presumably just  T  "Will you be home for dinner, sirt"  settle in tbe lodge at the manor house;  a young spark drabbled with mud and  bavin' no boxes and no servants, what  arrived by means of a market cart just  anon, and Sir Percy de Bohun, a fine  gentleman what's just ridden in the  yard before your lordship's coach,  buf-  "Who?" The little gentleman turned  green in his pallor and shot back in his  cushions with a gasp.  "Not much of any account, my lord,  I'm thinking, since Jenny here tells me  he sups at tho ordinary. Of course  your lordship '11 be served In your own  sitting room and dame and myself to  humbly wait upon you."  "Hold your tongue!" says the llttlo  man, gathering his scattered wits and  pausing to think, whllo his steeds paw  noisily ou the cobble pavement.  Peggy, at the pane, almost laughs as  she regarda tho shrinking, weazened  visage.  "Sir Robin McTart!" she snys to herself, shaking her head at the llttlo  vlxon. "*TIs Indeed a merry fate that  puts me and Percy and you all under  ono roof this night���������that Is, If his presence don't fright you Into a gallop."  Sir Percy himself, also for a second  standing moodily at his casement, could  and did behold thonco Sir Robin's res-  tlvo aud hungry leaders and had a  passing wonder ns to what brought any  gentleman to stop at such nn Inn, savo  as himself, by tho misfortuuo of a nail  in his animal's foot.  Sir Robin, however, with thnt discretion and prudojico, not to say cow-  nrdlco, which distinguished him, hud  purposely chosen tho Queen and Artichoke, for, upon second thought, ho had  determined to sloop In comfort.  Sir Robin loved his feathers and  quilts of n night far better than tho  Jolt of ruts rid ditches, and dreaded  highwaymen more thnn ovco tho.pangs  of delayed lovemiiklng.

Her ladyship, mind  made up to flee in the darkness,  leaving sixpence on the table  to pay for her lodgings, even now stood,  latch in hand, bundle once more under  arm, still a man, not having dared to  change her garments.  Sir Robin lay ensconced betwixt the  quilts, tho realizing sense that his mortal enemy1-one who sought his life,  who coyeted his lady���������from whom he  was running away, to be veracious���������  lay not many yards off him,, seeming  to banish that restful repose that had  seldom hitherto forsaken this worthy  and exemplary little person.  A mouse squeaked, and Sir Robin  shivered; a beetle pattered across the  hearth, his hair stood on end.  Surely a footstep sounded in the hallway, the boards creaked, something  metallic struck against the panel of his  door, and he sprang from his couch  and chattered to his sword.  Lady Peggy's blade had struck the  woodwork as she made her way  stealthily down in the darkness. While  Sir Robin shook she gained the lower  end of the hall, but, not being acquainted  with its ways and turnings, above all,  having forgot the two broad steps that  cut the straight road to the entrance in  two, her ladyship, with much clanking  of her weapon on the brick flooring,  fell sprawling, her bundle shooting off  into the unseen, she up on hands and  knees, hither, yon. seeking it; Sir Robin  beating on his wainscot such a tattoo  as was fit to wake the dead, shrieking,  from the safe shelter of the muflllng  pillows where he huddled:  "Murder! Thieves! Ho, there! Landlord! Tom! James! Ho, there, I say!  -Help I���������Help!"-���������- ���������   Sir Percy is out of his four post upstairs in a flash, tinder struck, door  flung open, in nightrail and cap, with  rapier drawn, hanger uplifted.  " 'Sdeath! What's the matter?" cries  , he at tho top of lung. "Speak or I'll  ��������� fire!" And down tho stair he plunges to  ,Sir Robiu's very sill.  This one, having successfully summoned those more doughty than himself to cope with the supposed danger,  now recognizing Sir Percy's voice, shivers and sweats as he cowers and pulls  the counterpane over his head, grasplug  his purse In his sharp little fingers,  wisely never undoing his door.  "Speak or I'll fire!" repeat's Sir Percy,  whoso candle hns been blown out by  the draft He takes a few steps down  tho hallway where ho hoars tho curious  scratching noise her ladyship is making as sho distractedly feels arouud for  the bundle.  At last she grasps It and creeps up  unwittingly to Sir Percy's very side.

Peggy, hor customary composuro being much tho worso for hunger and tho  general excitement, jumps when tho  sltot pops and thus Inadvertently now  pnlpably touches Percy's elbow. Ho  turns upon her and seizes hor wrists  in a grip of steel. She, us tightly hugging the bundle under bor nrinplt, utters no sound, but wriggles and twists  to such a purpose that sho ls about to  get froo when hor opponent ronows his  endeavors with an oath,  "Speak," snys ho, "or I'll brain you!"  milking to hold peg's two hands prisoner in one of his, tho whllo ho may  scizo his raplur and put a finish to tho  matter.

For an instant she stands on the  landing at bay. To unbolt the big door  and make an open dash for freedom  would mean certain death; to turn up  therefrom and regain her chamber was  her sole chance, and this must be done  before a light could be struck.  She wheeled around and rushed up  the hall, up the stairs among the clustering folks, nudging she knew not  whom, skipped along the narrow rear  passage and into her room before candle flames revealed *to the amazed  company that neither bolt, bar nor latch  had been disturbed nor anything in tho  houso taken.  Even while they rummaged In tha  bar room till, counted the forks nnd  spoons, pewter though they were, her  ladyship, tying the luckless bundle  about her waist with a hastily cut bed  cord, cautiously opened the casement,  crawled out on the trellis, which un-  steadled a bit beneath her weight, but  did not break, clambered in and out  the vines to the edge and then lightly,,  thanks to her twin's training, swung  herself to the ground clear, crept across  the yard, leaped the stone wall with a  bound and over, flew tho width of the  meadow, struck the lane, up to the  highroad, by the moon took a southerly course which she knew made for  Kennaston, and paused not much for  breath until she had left a matter of  five miles betwixt her and the Queen  and Artichoke.  After a matter of a dozen miles, and  now reaching the edge of a woods,  ���������with the tower of a castle just sticking  up out of the horizon for her only  beacon, Peggy halted. The tears forced  their way to her eyes and even plowed  two small furrows the length of her  cheeks, cupping in the dimple of her  chin and splashing at last on her much  rumpled, Mechlin lace cravat.  "Bah!" cried she. "I weep only because I am hungry. I am not afraid.  Odzooks! She that has had the hemp  about her neck to be strung up for a  highwayman must not fear to encounter one of her own ilk," and her ladyship essays to laugh as she plunges  into the wood.
