The Trail of the Dead:
THE STRANGE EXPERIENCE
OF DR. ROBERT HARLAND
By B. FLETCHER ROBINSON and J. MALCOLM FRASER
(Copyrliht 1903, by Joseph B. Bowles)
In my narrative, now drawing to i
conclusion, I havo cntloavoretl to avoid
emotion or exaggeration. Yet as I glance
over Its pngos, I cannot proclaim myself
aa satisfied. On such an evening as this,
with the summer woodlands beneath the
cottage basking In the tender glory of
the sun's farewell, with the silence of
tho day that Is ending holding the quiet
fields on such an evening, I say, my
story, even to myself, appears Impossible,
a nlghtmaro born In the land of evil
drams Yet I have but to turu my eyes
to where my dearest wife sits at her
work, to know that It Is true; for It was
la that time of danger that Providence
save me tho most generous of tho gifts
that can be bestowed upon man.
Two days after Maniac escaped from
our pursuit at Southampton, a little coun
cil was gathered In the parlor of Dr.
Weston's cottage at Cornish Tolleven.
IB his great arm-chair by the fire- sat the
old scholar, with the lamplight exposing
tie delicate fragility of n face whereon
consumption had set its warning. In odd
contrast was my cousin, Sir Henry Gra
den, who confronted him. Great-stnt-bred.
stern, keen-eyed, he was of that
type that can fearlessly execute, as well
as intelligently conceive, a plan. Mary
Weston was on a cushion at her father's
knee, his hand in hers; and it wa's more
often to that noble girl that my glance
wandered than to my cousin, though, in
deed it was he who now set before us
the position of affairs.
It was right, he said, that Dr. Weston
should know, even as his daughter knew,
the danger that hung over us. And so,
from its commencement, he told that ter
rible story; how Marnac, the celebrated
Heidelberg professor, had been seized
with a partial mania born of heredity,
nurtured by overwork, brought suddenly
to the light of the violent attacks deliv
ered against a book on which he had
spent half his life; how he had planned
to destroy his more bitter adversaries,
and how, by his insane cunning, he had
brought about the deaths of Von Stock
mar and Mcchersky; how, in his des
perate flight from our pursuit, he had
killed the son of Ueski, the Polish inn
keeper; how he had come to England
to end his vengeance upon Dr. Weston;
nnd how he had been led to believe that
Mary was the writer of the attack which
had incensed him. All this he explained;
nnd while he spoke, the shadow of the
terror seemed to creep over our very
muIs, so that we drew together use
cheep that hear the cry of wolves in the
It was Dr. Weston who first broke the
silence that followed Graden's conclu
sion. "You have referred to a certain book
or diary belonging to this Marnac," said
lie, for Indeed my cousin had mentioned
thnt dlspoverv at Heidelberg. "And I
gather that from it you first learned the
names of the scientific enemies against
whom an attack might be directed. Did
this madman Include In his butcher's list
any persons besides Von Stockmar,
Mechersky, and myself?"
'"There were several other names," re
plied my cousin; "but I do not think their
criticisms were sufficiently severe to
place them in serious danger. I have,
however communicated with them all.
On the least suspicion they will Inform
the police and also telegraph to me at
my London house. My servant there is
kept informed of my. address from day to
"And tho police?"
"In international matters they move
slowly. It has been a chaso across
Enrope, remember. Months have often
elapsed before very ordinary criminals
have been arrested. But this man is a
remarkable linguist; he has some five
hundred pounds yet in his possession, and
he has the cunning common to the par
tially insane. The English pollco have
full information, but by this time he
may be in France or Belgium."
"What, then, do you propose, Sir Hen
ry?" "For tho moment wo have no definite
objective. It would be useless for us 10
start for the continent without further
Information. Until it reaches us, we
shall stay in this country."
"I quite understand. I trust that for
the ten days that we still have at Poll
even, you will consider yourseh'es my
guests though I fear that the size of
jny cottage forbids me asking you to
leave your quarters at the Inn."
"Aro you, then, returning to Cam
bridge, Dr. Weston? I thought you had
settled here for the winter?" asked my
"It .was so Intended, but my doctors
have ordered me to the Engadlne. They
say it is my only chance, Sir Henry."
Mary Weston's eyes rose to her fath
rr's face in ono brief, pitiful glance, and
then her head dropped forward. Poor
girl! she knew that ho had spoken truly.
Graden rose in his ponderous fashion
nnd stood with his back to the fire. I
could see that the Intelligence concerned
j,lra concerned him, Indeed, too nearly,
for Immediate comment. It was some
moments before he spoke again.
"Forgive me, Dr. Weston," he said,
"but Is this a sudden resolution?"
"We decided yesterday."
"Is It commoji property? Do tho vil
"Really, Sir Henry, I have no Idea. I
should not think they know."
"I will bo quite plain with yon, Dr.
Weston, for that Is always the best. Un
til this madman Is secured, you'and yout
daughter go In some danger. You should
bo eafo enough Jn Switzerland, If you
keep your address a secret. But even
then wo must arrange that you have a
traveling companion that can bo trust
ed." "I shall bo vory glad to go," I inter
jected. "No, Robert, thnt will never do," he
said. "To dlyldo our forces would bo
the worst generalship. Our duty Is plain.
Wb must be prepared to strike at tho en
emy wherever he may bo found. Other
wise, there wlll. be weeks of anxiety for
us all, and heaven knows what dovlllsh
work going forward! Whom can wo
send? That we must first decide."
"Thetc is Mossol c ' I suggested, recall
ing the aid that stubborn German police
man had already rendered us.
"Ho would como gladly enough. Hut
I do not think the Heidelberg authorities
would sanction his departure on so vaguo
a Journey. No! I am afraid Mossel
is out of tho question."
"What of Reskl? I saw him find tho
body of his son; ho would travel to tho
world's end if it brought a chnnco to meet
"The very man. I thank you, Cousin
And so It was settled. We were to
send a telegram to tho Polish lnn-keoper
next morning. If he agreed to our re
quest, mouey could be forwarded In time
for him to meet us In London, where he
would take up his duty as escort to Dr.
Weston and his daughter.
"Remember, please, that your dcstlna
tion is a secret," said Graden, as wo
made our ndieus. "Thero must bo no
leaving of Indiscreet addresses. Dr. Wes
ton; no explanatory letters to old friends,
"My father" and I we understand,"
she said, looking him gravely In the eyes.
And so we passed out Into the starlight.
They were pleasant days that followed
days that seemed to me the happlost
m my life. Was It tho contrast with
the events of that terrlblo pursuit which
gave them their perfection? So I argued
at the time. Yet each hour I know more
clearly that It was Mary's bright eyos
that warmed the winter sunshine, and
Mary's presenco that gave the beauty to
that wild, inhospitable coast Of morn
ings we walked together on the cliffs;
and as night drew in, blotting out the
grey wastes of the Channel seas, we
joined Graden and her father in tho lit
tie parlor, listening to the talk of thoso
two great-hearted, simple men. On the
second day Reskl's answer came, accept
ing the trust wo offered. Then for a
week there was no news from the out
side world to trouble us, and no incl
dent at Polleven to remind us of our dan
ger save one, which, insignificant though
it seemed. I do right to set It before you,
As I have mentioned, a narrow dell or
"goyle." as the West-country folk would
have It, ran between tho cottage and the
sea. It was a ruinous place In tho win
ter-tlme, sprinkled with trees knotted nnd
bent under years of conflict with the
winds, and floored with dead bracken
and patches of gorse. In the summer it
was, doubtless, pleasing enough; but In
that December weather it seemed Bhrlv
eled nnd forlorn. Indeed, it was not n
spot we greatly favored.
At nine-forty on tho following morn.

to the travelers, wero to bo forwnrded

sistance from whatever spot our quest
had drawn us. Nolther Dr. W eston nor
his daughtor wero to loavo their hotel
at Prontrcslna, ovon for n walk, without
tho escort of tho Pole.
"I do not wish to alarm you with ab
surd rules, Miss Mary," concluded my
cousin; "but It is well to be cautious.
Besides, It should bo only for a fow days.
I havo found means of awakening tlio
continental police to Interest In his cap
ture, nnd wo may hear of his nrrest at
any moment. Ah! there goes the whlstlo.
Good-bye, Dr. Weston. Good-byo, my
dear girl. God keep yout"
He was old enough to bo her rather;
yet 1 did not consider his age was suffi
cient exenso for tho kiss that he touched
on her forehead.
Wo saw (ter handkerchief fluttering
from the carriage window as the train
drew out of the station. I watched It
fado Into tho muddy groy of the morn
ing; nnd as It disappeared, tho love I
had hidden from myself rushed over me,
so thnt I stood with staring eyes, per
haps ns foolish and woo-begono a figure
as humanity has ever smiled to witness.
And for this I shall always thank my
couslu, Harry Graden, that ho slipped his
arm In mine, leading me down tho plat
form as If he had noticed nothing out of
the ordinary In my manner.
(To bo continued.)
It was about four o'clock on a Satur
day afternoon, the fifth day of our visit,
that Miss Weston and I entered It from
the seaward side. We had taken a sharp
walk to the Bredairs Strand, whero the
famous caves are situated, and wero re
turning to tea. We came upon them nt
ah angle of tue thicket a man and a
woman seated on a fallen log In eager
conversation. Miss Weston held up n
warning hand to me, with amusement
twinkling in her eyes.
"Oh, Mr. Harland!" she whispered,
"and at her age, too! '
"Why, who was It?" I asked, for their
backs were turned towards us.
"Don't you see? It Is Martha, our
housekeeper. Sne Is five and forty if
she is a day. Fancy Martha with a young
man of her own! I wonder who it can
Whereupon she fairly gave way to her
merriment in a low ripple of laughter.
It was loud enough to reach the ears of
the pair before us, for they started to
their feet, the woman facing round bold
ly with flaming cheeks, while tho man,
after ono swift glance, dropped back a
step and stood shamefacedly, with down
cast eyes. Miss Weston nodded to
Martha and we passed .on up the track.
"Oh! I am very, very sorry!" she
cried to mo when we were out of ear
shot. "I am certain that wretched man
Is only after her savings. ;What a silly
old dear she Is!"
"He seemed about the average In bash
ful rustics," I answered her.
"He Is one of the worst men In the
vlllago a drunu.i loafer, who never
leaves the inn bar until lie is almost
starving. I wonder nt Martha, for, be
sides his reputation, she knows "
"What?" I asked, for she bad stopped
with a little shiver.
"They say In the village that Pcnrn
man for that Is his name acted as a
sort of servant to Professor Marnac
whilo he was at Polleven. At least I
know that Penruman brought us mes
sages from him twice, and onco he came
with a bonk that had been lent to fath
er." "Was Penruman courting Mnrtha
"I don't know, Mr. Harland; but this
Is tho first time I've seen them together.
Please don't say anything more about it.
I will have a talk to Martha privately,
and sco if I can put some senso into
her silly head."
As I was walking back to the inn bo
fore dinner I caught sight of Penruman
coming out of the villago postofflce. He
Hlnuched nwav ui) a side street at sight
of me. You may think mo dull, but I
had no suspicion or the trutn.
If I hnd only known.
We all traveled to London together,
taking rooms for the night at tho Char
ing Cross Hotel; for though Grndon had
chambers In tho Albany, he preferred
thnt wo should not be separated. It was
here that Reskl Joined us. Sorrow had
burut Its mark upon tho Polish Inn
keeper. His thin, handsome features
were yet more drawn; and though his
courtly manner was unchanged, an alien
ferocity lurked Ju his dark, reflective
avoa. Tt would not so woll with tho
murderer of his only son If ho should
meet him race to lace, do i mougui as
he stood beforo us, his bat raised, bowing

General Taylor was trlumplinutly
elected, and It then became Lincoln's
duty, ns Whig member of Congress from
Illinois, to recommend ccrtnln persons
to fill government olllccs In thnt Stnte.
Ho did this after he returned to Spring
field, for his term in Congress ended on
March 4, 1849, tho day that General
Tuylor became President. Tho letters
thnt ho sent to Washington when for
warding tbo papers and applications of
people who wished appointment wero
both characteristic and amusing; for
in his desire not to mlslend or to do
injustice to any mnn, they were very
apt to say moro In favor of tho men
he did not wish to seo appointed than
lu recommendntlon of his own partic
This absolute and Impnrtlal fairness
to friend nnd foe alike was one of his
strongest traits, governing every nction
of his life. If It had not been for this,
he might possibly have enjoyed another
term In Congress, for there had been
tnlk of re-electing him. In splto of his
ponfesslon to Speed thnt "being elected
to Congress, though I nm very grateful
to our friends for lmvlng done It, has
not pleased me ns much ns I expected,"
this must have been flattering. But
there were many able young men In
Springfield who coveted the honor, nnd
they hnd entered into nn agreement
among themselves thnt each would he
content with n single term. Lincoln of
course remained faithful to his prom
ise, nis strict keeping of promises
canned him also to lore nn appointment
from President Taylor nn Commissioner
of the General Land Office, which might
easily hnve been his, but for which he
hnd agreed to recommend some other
Illinois mnn. A few weeks Inter tho
President offered to make him Governor
of tho new Territory of Oregon. This
attracted him much more than tho oth
er office, hut he declined because his
wife wns unwilling to live In n place so
