"No, I think she hod none. All her other
relative remained In Ireland."
A few moro questions in the same vein
tonoiuded the interview, and Mr. Parker
woiituwuy feeling considerably depressed
with the magnitude of the undertaking
which he had on Ins hands. He ft-lt certain
lhat It ba could only Bod this Dounelly or
Dtnohut, II IM case might be, hesbould
.1. sever sumo clew lo the whereabouts of
Mrs. Brownlow The moro ho thought it
over the more ho became convinced of that
theory and thn more be felt that he had
made a lav , ruble start in hi inquiry. His
Urst step towards lluding out when thil
woman was wu to go to Yonkert. He via. (
iled every family of either name iu tht
town, but learned nothiug whatever con
cerning the woman. Ho could not even dis
cover that any took woman hud ever lived
there. It took him nearly two weeki to
come to the conclusion lhat in Youkora
Iktra was no ntoW whatever to tho mystery
which he was end -avoring to ferret out.
Then he determined to visit in a similar
way ull the towns along the river between
New York ami a point from forty to tlfty
miles to Hi" north Ho began with tho set
tlement included in tho city limits, like
Bpnjrten DuyrU. Kromttpuyten Duyvil he
worked bii way gradually north, and when
tlu-iHi Week had paattd he had scoured the
river sett lenient! and had found absolutely
nothing. Then ho returned to tho city and
spent u day or two iu rest and looking after
ha btttittat, which was Buffering aadly
from ncg i ', t. When ho began to think i
over I ho case again it occurred to him that
he bad nude an egregious blunder: he hail
not taken iato account at all the fact that
Mrs. Brownlow opera cloak had beeu
found in the nvcr.
" What un us 1 was,'' he exclaimed, im
patiently. "Here have I been searching"!!
Hi" cast s f the Hudson lor four pre-
ei u week, when the plainest evidence in
lh" case shows that Mrs Brownlow crossed
the nver before starting elsewhere. Now.
whether sho niel her death while creasing
the river or sm after getting to tho other
nle, of oaafM I can not ay, but I shall not I
take another step in the matter until I cou '
s.der what might have happened had she
crossed the river " Therefore he set his an
ii ytical p nver at work again and reasoned
that if she had crossed the river, a un
doubtedly ue act out to do, aim must havt
had mm point iu view to wh.ch he want
ed to go. The hypothesis that she wa going
to aeclude herself at the house i f her old
-ri ant tMtk in Mr. Parker' head in apite
of himself "She mul have known," be
aid to hirascif. "where tni woman lived;
or, if not this woman, she mui hive known
where she wo going. Sho would not have
set out blindly, not even iu her rage, upon a
journey without having aome plan in her
mind, even if it hod u,t been formed until
he had reached the aidewark of her house
after leaving her husband."
The upthot of hi reasoning wa that h
ecu. ej periuisi n ji oa, to examine Mr.
Brownlow correspondence A large
bundle of letter were turned over to him
and bo soi about inspecting their poet
mark and Ihe handwriting on tM en
velope. All thow that ware postmarked
from citiea or town at distance were un
mediately- caat aside, and of all thoae thai

It wo about two o'clock ou the afternoon

Tho mayor opened the letter without n
word. A be read hit browi contracted
and an expresiion of inciedul ty came over
hi face. This is what lie read :
"Mn. Mayoh: lhavo just tint daylearncd

"Who gave you this letter, madamef"
asked the mayor, sharply.
"Mrs. Brownlow, sir," she responded.
"8he ha been itnupiug nt my house, ophi
dic Youker, for a long ume, uml has been
very lick. She came unexpectedly u.iu
night, or rather murning, for she had
walaed tlmoit all tho wny. Wo never soo
the paper, and never knew whMhad hap
pened until I beard smim people n Youkers
talking about tho huuguig of it riok man as
would take place aoon."
Thn mayor was punled. lie did not be
lieve the story at all, thinking It a shrewd
invention of Brownlow' friitid to gain
time. Alter a few minutes' thought to
summoned the district attorney, uud to
gether they listened to tho woman' atory.
" It ii a tualtor," said the district attorney,
"that needs attention, at uny rate. If it is a
schetno eoiicoc-.cd in behalf of Brownlow by
his friend or Lawyer Parker, we must dis
cover who is responsible and bring him or
them to justice."
Then turning to the woninii, who said her
name was Mary Donnelly, be snid :
"I will have an officer accompany you to

errand without her. The poor WOttuM pro
tested in vuiu aguinsl this treatment at the
hands of the law. Thedistric! attorney uml
the chief of police thought that the mutter
was altogether too inisirlunt lo allow such
a witness to escape over the borders into
j toother State. The officers, instead ol go
ing to Yonkcr to get ui Mary Donnelly'l
house, crossed Ihe ton into New Jersey,
lud ufter a short railroad rule engaged a
I carriage to tako them lo 'bat point of the
1 palisades thut overhangs the river near
Youkers. There, afler crossing private
grounds, they came to a path down Ihe
cliff made up of stone steps und patches of
wooden siuirwuy thut zigzagged hither uud
you across the rocks until ll reached thl
i Dottom. There they were wilhin a few
' fen of the river, und a short wulk along
I the banks brought tbcm to u low whito
house nestling against the rocks. Their
knock at the door was immediately an
swered by no less aporson that Mr. Henry
Parker. He was not surprised to seo them,
and directed them at ouco into one of the
few Binall rooms of the house, where the ol
Accra, to their intense astonishment, found
Mrs. Buownlow lying weak but conva
lescent upon a couch.
Tho story ol her flight and remarkable
disappearance was soon told. Alter her
quarrel with Mr. Brownlow upon the even

in u desperate Iraino ol mind. It was her
intent to go away for it few duys and com
pel her husband to ue for her pardon. Sho
baked through her Idlers and found three
from her old servant Mary Donnelly. Ono
of them, roiitaiuing the woman's uddrcai
'.v nr. ki. tut orricstis, to tuliu istensi
and the description of how to reach her
home, she put in her pocket. Tho others
the left in her bureau, where Mr. Purkei
tubsequently found them. Withthese inula
small sum of money in her hand shesturted
out of the house, but she had not gone mure
than a block before she realized Ihut she
was ill prepared in dress for such a jour

On the impulse of the moment Mrs. Brown
low exchanged her costly opera cloak for
tho woman's cheap but large shawl. Thil
garment o disguised her that no one whom
she met on the journey suspected for a mo
ment that sho was really in full evening
dress. The cloak afterwards found in thl
river may be accounted for iu any way
that suit the reader. The police believed
that the woman to whom il was given com
mitted suicide, aud it is probable that the
body found and identified as that of Mrs
Brownlow was iu reality none other than
that of the woman to whom the ciouk hud

strain and exposure consequent to hei
