BY      LOTHROP     PUB^3HINC     COMPANY  4  (Continued.J  CHAPTER XXIII.  TROVE and the baak official  were in Hillsborough soon after  sunrise the morning of that  memorable day. The young  man rapped loudly on the broad door  at the Sign of the Dial, but within all  "was silent. The day before Darrel bad  spoken of going off to the river towns  and must have started. A lonely feeling came into the boy's heart as he  turned away. He went promptly to  the house of the district attorney and  told all he knew of the money that he  had put in the bank. He recounted all  that took place the afternoon of his  stay at Robin's Inn���������the battles of the  cocks, and the spider, and bow the  wounded fowl had probably sprinkled  his sleeve with blood.  In half an hour news of the young  man's trouble hud gone to every house  in the village. Soon a score of his  schoolmates and half the faculty were  at his side���������there in the room of justice. Theron Allen arrived at 9 o'clock,  although at that hour two responsible  men had already given a bail bond.  After dinner Trove, a constable and  the attorney rode to Robin's Inn. The  news had arrived before them, but  only the two boys and Tunk were at  home. The latter stood in front of the  stable, looking earnestly up the road.  "Hello!" said he, gazing curiously at  horse and men as they came up to tbe  door. He seeme'd'to.be eying the attorney with hopeful anticipation.  "Tunk," said Trove cheerfully, "you  have a mournful eye."  Tunk advanced slowly, still gazing,  both hands, in his trousers pockets.  "Ez Tower lust went by?' said~heT  with suppressed  feeling.    "Said you  was arrested for murder."  "I presume you were surprised."  "Waal," said he, "Ez ain't said a  word before in six months."  Tunk opened the horse's mouth and  stood a moment peering thoughtfully  at his teeth.  "Kind of unexpected to be spoke to  by Ez Tower," be added, turning his  eyes upon them wltb the same curious  look.  The interrogation of Tunk and the  two boys began immediately, Tbe  story of the fowl corroborated, the  sugar bush became an object of Investigation. MHIdam was ten miles away,  and it was quite possible for the young  man to have ridden thero and back between the hour" when Tunk left him  ond that of sunrise, when be met Mrs.  Vaughn at ber door. Trove nnd Tunk  Hosely went with the officers down a  lano"to tho pasture nnd thence Into tho  wood by a path tliey followed that  night to and from the shanty.  They discovered nothing now save  ono remarkable circumstance that baffled Trovo and renewed tho waning  suspicion of tho men of tho law. On  almost n straight lino from bush to  barn were tracks of a mnn thnt showed  plainly where they came out of tho  grass upon tho garden soil. Now, the  strnnge part of It lay In this fact-tho  boots' of Sidney Trovo exactly fitted  the tracks. They followed tbo footprints carefully Into the meadow grass  nnd up to tho stall, of the mullein.  Nenr the top of It waa the abandoned  borne of tho spider 'and around It  wore tho four snares Trovo had observed, now full of prey.  "Do not disturb the grass here," said  Trove, "and I will provo to you that  the tracks were made before the night  In question. Do you see the four  webs?"  "Yes," laid tbe attorney.  "Tbe tracks go under them," snld  Trove, "and must, therefore, bave been  made before tbo webs. I will prove to  you that tht webs wore spun before  2 o'clock of the day before yesterday.  At that hour Z saw Uie spinner die.  Bee, her lair Is deserted."  He broke tbe stalk of mullein and  the cablet of spider silk tbat led away  from It, ttr\*} *<M '���������mpnotorl tho nmnr**  lair. Th*m he told of that deadly battle In the grass.  "But theft webi might have been  tbt work of another spider," said the  ���������ttorney.  "It mnttr-re vot,H Trovo trtalatr>rl "tor  the webt were spun at least twelve  boars before tht crime. One of tbem  contains tbe body of a red butterfly  with ���������tarred wings. We cut tbe wings  that day, and Mist Vaughn put them  in a book tbt wat rending."  1'tu) brought the wings, which exactly fitted tbt tiny torso of the but*  terfiy. Tbey could discern tbe footprints, ont of wblcb bad broken tht  ���������nt's road, while aaotb-tr was completely covered by tht butterfly mart.  "Tho**** tracks were made before tht  webt. that It ���������vidrnLr told tbt attor  ney. ' "Do* you "know who made the  trades ?"  "I do not," was the answer of the  young maa.  Trove remained at Robin's Inn that  night, and after the men had gone he  recalled a circumstance that was like  a flash of lightning in the dark of his  great mystery.  Once at the Sign of the Dial his  friend the tinker had shown him a pair  of new boots. He remembered they  were of the same size and shape as  those he wore.  "We could wear the.same boots,"  he had remarked to Darrel.  "Had I to do such penance I should  be damned," the tinker had answered.  "Look, boy, mine are the larger by far.  There's a man coming to see me at the  Christmas time, a man o\ busy feet  That pair in your hands I bought for  him."  "Day before yesterday," said Tunk  that evening, "I was up in the sugar  bush after a bit o' hickory, an' I see  a man there, an* I didn't have no idee  wbo 'twas. He was tall and had white  hair an' whiskers an' a short blue  coat. When I first see him he was set-  tin' on a log, but 'fore I come nigh he  got up an' made off."  Although meager, tbe description  was sufficient. Trove had no longer  any doubt of this���������that the stranger  he had seen at Darrel's had been hiding in the bush that day whose events  were now so important. .  Whoever had brought the money, he  must have known much of the plans  and habits of the young man, and, the  night before Trove's arrival at Robin's  Inn, he came probably to the sugar  woods,-where he spent the next day in  biding.  The young man was deeply troubled.;  Polly and her mother sat well into the  night with him, hearing the story of  his life, which he told ih full, saving  only tbe sin of bis father; Of that he  had neither the right nor the heart to  tell.  "God only knows what is the next  chapter," said he at last. "It may rob  me of all that I love in this world."  "But not of me," said Polly, whispering in his ear.  "I wish I were sure of that," ho answered.  *       *       *       *       a       a       a  Among those wbo got off tho train  at Hillsborough one day was a big,  handsomo youth of somo twenty years,  In all the crowd thero were none bad  over seen him before. Dressed in the  height of fashion, he was a figure so  extraordinary that all eyes observed  him as ho made his way to the tavern.  Trovo and Polly and Mrs. Vaughn  were in that curious throng on tho  platform, whero a depot was being  built.  "MyI What a splendid looking follow!" said Polly ns the stranger passed,  Trovo had a swift pang of Jealousy  thnt moment. Turning, ho snw Ulloy  Brooke, standing near tljpni in a group  ofviilagors.  "I tell you, bo's a thief," tbo boy  heard him saying, and tho words seemed to blister as they fell, and ever  after when ho thought of thorn a great  sternness lay like a shadow on bis  brow.  "I must go," said he, calmly turning  to Polly, "Let mo help you Into tbo  wagon."  When tbey wore gone bo stood a moment thinking. He felt as if he were  friendless nnd nlono,  "You'ro a giant today," laid a friend,  passing bim. but Trove raado no an*  swor. Housed incomprehensibly, hia  heavy muscles had become tense, and  be had nn odd consciousness of tbelr  power. Tbe people wore scattering,  and be walked slowly down tbe itreot.  Tbe sun was low, but be thought noj  of borne or where bo should spend tlf  night, It was now tbe third day after  bla arrest Since noon he had been  looking for Darrel. but tht tinker's  Juu.

"Watch yonder pendulum and say not  a word until It has ticked forty times.  For what are thy learning an' thy  mighty thews lf they do not bear thea  up in time o' trouble? Now is thy trial  come before the Judge of all. Up with  thy head, boy, an' be acquitted o' weakness an' fear an' evil passion."  "We deserve better of him," said  Trove, speaking of Riley Brooke.  When all others hated him we were  kind to the old sinner, and it has done  him no good."  "Ah, but has it done thee goodl  There's the question," said Darrel, hia  baud upon the boy's arm.  "I believe it has," said Trove, with a  look of surprise.  "It was thee I thought of, boy. I had  never much thought o' him."  That moment Trove saw farther into  the depth of Barrel's heart than ever  before. It startled him. Surely hers  was a man that passed all understand-*  ing.  Darrel crossed to his bench and began to wind the clocks.  "Put away thy unhappiness," said he  gently. "No harm shall come to thee.  'Tis only a passing cloud."  "You're right, and I'm not going to  be a fool," said Trove. "It has brought  me one item of good fortune."  "An' that is?"  "I have discovered who id my father."  "An' know ye where he is now?" tho  tinker inquired;    '  "No; but I know It Is he to whom  you gave the boots at Christmas*"' time."  "Hush, boy," said Darrel in a whisper, his hand raised.  He crossed to the bench, returning  quickly and drawing his chair in front  of the young man.  "Once upon a time," he whispered,  sitting down and touching the palm of  his open hand with the index finger  of the other, "a youth held in his hand  a cup, rare an' costly, an' it was full  o' happiness, an* be was tempted to  drink. 'Ho, there, me youth,' said one  who saw him, 'that is the happiness of  another.' But he tasted the cup, an'  it was bitter, an' he let it fall, an' the  other lost his great possession. Now,  that bitter taste was ever oh the  tongue o" the youth, so that his.own  cup had always the flavor 6' woe* J * 1  The tinker paused a moment" 'iobk-  1ng-sternly-'into~the-face*#fTthe-yo'in*j-  ���������man.   ���������    ",.���������'"'      ;;u. / ; ������; -'.

"God bless thee, boy! Thou'rt come  to a great law���������who drains the cup of  another's happiness shall find it .bitter,  but who drains the cup of another's  bitterness shall find itsweet." ���������  \-  A silence followed, In which Trove  sat looking at the old man whose words  were like those of a prophet. "I havo  no longer any right to seek my father,"  bo thought "And, though I meet him  faco to face, I must let him, go his  way."     . ','���������'".' (i) ���������    _  Suddenly thero came'"'a rap* at tho  door, aud when Darrel opened it thoy'  saw only a letter hanging to the latch.  It contained these words, but no signature: '������������������'������������������*������������������  "There'll be a bonfire and some fun  tonight at 12 in tbe middle of Cook's  field. Messrs.

TORTURING  RHEUMATISM  "Suffered for Five Years���������Cured by Dr.  Williams Pink Pills  Agonising pains,  sometimes    in one  part  of   the   body,   sometimes   in   another, more often in the back or joints  ���������that's rheumatism.     Bach day makes  the  disease worse���������increases  the torture;     Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills have  cured  thousands.      They    cured    Mr.  * Horace Plante,  of    So'rel,  Que.,    of a  most aggravated case of rheumatism.  I walked as if my boots were filled with  pebbles.      The  pains, starting  in  my  feet, spread to all parts of the body;  my back and joints became affected.  For upwards of five  years I suffered  the greatest agony.   Often I was confined to bed, hardly1 able to move. Nothing seemed  to  help  me.   I despaired of ever being well again.   By good  chance Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were  brought to my attention and I decided  to  try them.   I got six boxes���������before  they were gone I felt a great improvement.   I continued the treatment and  my health gradually came    back   till  now I do not feel the least pain���������I am  ���������totally cured.   It was a surprise to my  (friends to see me on the street again  well and strong after five years of torture.      They wanted    to know,  what  (brought    about    the  change.      I told  them  Dr.  Williams'   Pink Pills, for I  took no other mediciine once, I began  their use.

That of Parmelee's  Vegetable Pills is so compounded a3  to preserve their moisture, and they  may be carried into any latitude  without impairing their strength.  Many pills, in order to keep them  from adhering, are rolled in powders,  which prove nauseating to the taste.  Parmelee's Vegetau- Pills are so prepared that they are agreeable to the  most delicate.   .     ..  About Forty Species Are Suited to Outdoor Culture.  Among the hardy ferns are varieties  greatly differing in size and form, from  a hairlike creeping stem bearing a few  simple mosslike leaves to the vigorous growing plants with large leaves,  attaining a height of two or three feet.  Ferns are Interesting and extremely  beautiful, especially when grown as  specimen plants or in combination  with other plants. Tbe varying conditions in which the different species succeed are remarkable. Many of them  require a warm temperature, while  others do well in cool and shady places.  Of the 4,000 or more species of fer us  not more than about forty species are  suited to outdoor culture in ordinary  soils and situations. These species can  be planted In beds, borders or rockeries or In the foreground of shrubbery.  A.s most of them require a somewhat  shady place,, they are especially useful  for filling in places where grass antl  other light loving plants cannot grow.  Perfect drainage Is required. The soil  should have leaf mold in it, or decayed  peat or well decayed sod will answer.  Hardy ferns are best planted in the  spring, but they can be planted in tin-  summer if the fronds or leaves are cur  back, making it easier for the plants to  establish themselves before the winter  sets in. From, his florist the amateu'  gardener can obtain cuttings of varie  ties most suitable for the soil and climate In his vicinity. In the winter th-  ferns should be given protection, wit"  a covering of leaves, hay or straw.

As to rowing, plain, humdrum washing may bo made to yield some of the  same benefits If you mako a point of  rubbing hard up, as well as, or, Inntcnd  of, down the board, There Is not the pull  upon the upper arm muscles thnt rowing  (rives unless you do this, .and tho  harder you pull against tho board the  more nearly you come to tho movement and the benefit of rowing,  Kven the washing of the little pieces  ���������tho embroidered tnbhi linen, which  so many women prefer to do up  themselves, rather than trust to the  tender mercies of a washer woman-  may be looked to as exercjve producers.  Of course, there Is no discounting  the value which the tut-on scHt', (if ft  game or of athletics adds to the actual physical development, And tho  clean, pure air In which rowing and  paddling aro usually taken Is another great factor which Is often lacking In doing housework, ..

MONTH  hie Food Should Have the Most  Careful Attention  By Dr. Emelyn L. Coolidge  Copyright, 1905. by A. S. Barnes & Co.  THE nightdress should now be ot  cotton and the skirt left off at  night,* if it has not already been  discarded, but the band and a  thin shirt -should be worn. Long white  cotton stockings, which may be pinned  to the napkin, should be worn all summer, and not short socks.  In summer it Is important to keep the  baby's head as cool as possible; therefore, do not use a hot sunbonnet, which  -shuts oft all the air; muslin caps or  light pique hats afford enough shade lithe baby has a carriage parasol.  If one expects to lake a long sea voyage or travel a long time on the cars*  where fres>h milk cannot be obtained, it  will be well to> accustom the child to  taking either condensed milk or one of  the best prepared foods which can be  made with water before starting on tho  journey. Begin to do this two or three  weeks before leaving home, and give  the baby one or two meals each day of  this food. This is a good plan to follow  even If the baby is nursed by his mother, for she may be ill or unable to-  nurse her infant for some reason, and lt  Is best to be prepared for such an emergency.  Milk that has been rapidly cooled and-  placed in sealed and sterilized glass jars;  will keep from four to six days, lf kept  well packed in ice. Enough food for  twenty-four or even forty-eight hours  ���������may be prepared at home, if it is sterilized and packed in a little traveling  basket which contains a small compartment in which to keep ice.  The formula sometimes used for the,  sixth month Is: Six ounces of top milk  skimmed from the top of a quart bottle-  of milk, ten ounces of milk poured off,,  twenty-four ounces of barley or oatmeal'  gruel,  four teaspoonful!? of granulated--  or seven of milk sugar, a pinch of bicarbonate of soda and a pinch otssalt.  This  should  be  pasteurized,   cooled  in-,  the usual manner, and given to the baby  every three hours up to 9 or 10 P. M.  From four to six ounces may be taken,  at each meal.  When an exceedingly hot day comes, It.  is always wise to pour out one or even  two ounces from each bottle of the regular mixture and substitute boiled water-  In its place.  If the baby is ~t all apt to vomit, it  will be best during the hot weather to-  use only four or five ounces of the top-.  milk instead of six, and to make up the  quantity wit.h the gruel. Unless the  baby is Inclined to be constipated, barley gruel is better to use in summer  than oatmeal, for it Is less heating.  Another good plan, when the baby hasr ,  delicate digestive organs, is to make*  one, meal a day, all through the very  hot weather, of mutton broth, made in  the following manner: One pound of the  neck of mutton cut up, one pint of cold  water and a'pinch of; salt. Cook'very  slowly for three or four hours until you  have half a pint, adding a little water,  if necessary, from time to time, as it  boils away; then strain through muslin,  ���������andr-when���������coldr^remove-every-^partiole���������  of fat. This broth may be added to an.  equal quantity of barley water and fed.  to the baby lukewarm through a nursing bottle. .,-,)'  Ml these simple measures help to ward"  oif the dreaded "summer complaint,"  and give the digestive organs less work  to do during hot weather and while the  teeth are being cut.  Public Manicuring  HE was a good-looking man, woli--  dressed, and quiet in his appearance.  He even  rose to give an  elderly, woman his seat, au which ungual exhibition of politeness the girl  ���������pposite looked admiringly at'him.   He  ���������lid not whistle, he ,did not smoke, although it was a seat where smoking wae .  allowed, and there was not a sign of a*.  toothpick about him.  And then���������he drew forth a pearl-han- ���������  died penknife, and began to manicure->  his nails!
