CHAPTER VIII. (Continued.) '
I got to the palings by tiic park, and
kept them In touch until nt length 1
reached the carriage drive- gate of Flex
more's house. Hy this time, what with
one accident and another, It must have
been pretty nearly four o'clock. There
were lights in the house. Refore the door
stood Lynn Yeanies' mare, Flexmore's
pardoner holding her head.
"Afternoon, sir," said he In an under
tone that spoke of calamity. There was
foreboding silence, also, on the part of
tho maid-servant as she opened the sit
ting room door.
Miss Dalrymple wns on her knees be
fore a big chair drawn near tho lire. In
which little Laure sat, her face buried
in her hands. They were not aware of
my presence. I left them, closlug the
door behind me in silence.
"Where is Mr. YeAines?" I asked of the
maid who waited in the hall.
"Upstairs in master's room, sir," she
replied lugubriously.
Y'eanies was standing by his uncle's bed
side; he thrust his hands quickly In his
pockets as the door opened and I entered.
No one else was there. I went in silence
to the bed and looked down. Flexmore's
eyes were closed, but his jaw had drop
ped. "You're a bit too late with that will,"
said Yeanies, in a tone and with an ex
pression on his face that implied a good
deal a tone of subdued jocularity, a cun
ning leer that bade me understand he
knew why I hadn't come earlier. "Why,
what have you been doing?" he asked
with surprise. "You're a sight to be
"How long has he been gone?" I asked.
Indifferent to my appearance. s
"Oh, not above a quarter of an hour.
Gertrude's just gone down. She did all
that was possible to restore vitality. But
it's all over this time. He won't come
back any more, as the song says."
"Have you sent any one for Dr. Aw
drey? He ought to be here."
"Of course he ought, but I suppose he's
got some interesting pauper to look after.
I went for him myself. The old boy
. was shocking bad when I arrived here
after leaving you. I went over to Aw
drey at once, but he was out ; came back,
end by that time nunky was pretty near
the finish."
"Was he In a state of consciousness at
that time or not?"
"Well, he was conscious enough to ask
for you, and wonder why you hadn't
turned up."
It occurred to me that Lynn Yeames,
eeing his uncle's precarious condition,
had himself stretched that cord for me
Instead of going for Dr. Awdrey, in order
to prevent my arriving in time to get
Flexmore's signature to the will.
"Do you know why I did not turn up,
as you call it?" I asked sharply.
"Not I; but yoifre not sorry, I sup
pose, that you did not get here in time."
It was on the tip of my tongue to re
tort, "Not so sorry as you may have rea
son to be, Mr. Yeames;" but I said noth
ing, for I wished to see how far this
young man's fatuity would carry him, and
contented myself with thinking of the
bitter punishment in store for him when
he should find out how completely he had
deceived himself. Certainly no self-deception
could be more complete than his.
Assured of my venality, led away by his
own hopes and over-confidence in the suc
cessful issue of his cunning, he apparent
ly felt as sure of being possessed of his
uncle's fortune as though the thousands
were already in his hands.
There are some men who have so little
self-respect that they do not keep up a
decent pretence of virtue when the object
Is achieved for which it was first assumed,
and Lynn Yeames was one of these. He
already took upon himself the airs of mas
ter in that house, and with a grand pat
ronage bade me come down and have
Borne refreshment. I complied, for after
the shaking I had received I was in no
mood to refuse.
We went Into the sitting room. Laure
was lying on the couch holding the hand
of Miss Dalrymple, who sat on a stool
by her side.
"Oh, haven't you got all that over
yet?" Lynn asked petulnntly, glancing at
them. "Sit down, Keene." He touched
the bell? "It's absurd nonsense to en
courage morbid feeling and mawkish sen
timent about a thing that's been forc-
neen for weeks an inevitable thing
A little refreshment for Mr. Keene." The
latter addressed to the servant who came
to Uie door. "I say it's nonsense!"
"Lynn!" said -Miss Dalrymple, in a
tone of mingled surprise, regret and re
monstrance. "I say It's nonsense," he repeated
harshly, "and you ought to know it, Ger
trude, with your experience ; the child lias
been petted and pampered till she's un
healthy. It's exactly what my mother
lias maintained all along. However, I
shall niter all that tho girl will bo pack
ed off to a good, wholesome boarding
school as soon as tho funeral Is over."
MifM Dalrymple looked perfectly amaz
ed by this extraordinary outburst; she
could not understand the meaning of it.
I could well enough. Mr. Yeames had
already thought better of his proposal to
make the pennijess Miss Dalrymple a
partaker in his fortune, and did not care
how soon there should be a breach be
tween them. It was this rather than any
udden fit of dislike to Laure which had
led him to make this Bavage onslaught
Lauro clung closer than ever to her
only friend, and looked In terror at Lynn.
Miss Dalrymple held her hand firmly. The
servant brought in the tray and I helped
myself. Lynn waited till the servant
was gone, and then, going to the win
dow, said:
"I Bhnll go oyer and fetch Awdrey.
The certificate must ho seen about at
ouce. Go and get my hat from the II
brary, Laure. Tho child sprang up and
uped from the room to fetch the bully s
ht : Miss Dalrymple stood with heaving
and clote-prewed llp, and not a particle
of color In her face. She could not speak
before me.
Lynn met her calm gate with bent
brows, and turned again to the window,
(licking his handkerchief from his side
pocket in a manner which by Itself was
insolent and offensive.
Hut in doing this he flicked a little
pellet of paper out. It fell ngalnut my
too, and I quickly covered it with my
foot. The next moment he thrust his
hand sharply in the pocket from which
he had flicked out this pellet, then shook
his handkerchief and looked nbout the
floor at his feet.
"What dreadful weather, Miss Dalrym
ple." said I, setting down my glass.
Lynn Yeames went hastily from the
room, snatching his liat out of Loure'i
hand as he passed. I picked up tho pellet
of paper and slipped It into my waistcoat
"Oh. is this true, dear is It true?"
cried little Laure under her breath, as
she joined Miss Dalrymple. "Will he
send me away from you? Will he part
"No, my child," said I, going up to
them. "Take this assurance from an old
man who loves you for ycjur father's sake,
and Nurse Gertrude for her own you
shall not be parted.
I left them. As I passed through the
hall I caught sight of Lynn Yeames on
the landing above with a lighted candle,
looking about for the pellet of paper I
was carrying away In my pocket
I have in my office what I call my
"handy drawer" a good large drawer
that slides easily and fastens wJth a
patent key, and divided into a score of
compartments. In this I put away any
thing that I think may come In handy
at some future time, and an alphabetical
index on a side of paper tells me at a
glance in which nest to find what I want.
I recommend a drawer of this kind to
any one of a practical and methodical
turn of mind; he will have recourse to
it more frequently than he anticipates,
and find it occasionally of inestimable
Well. Into this drawer. Nest Y, I put
that pellet of paper after making a care
ful examination of it, and indexed it
fhn. "Vp-imes. Pellet of naner jerked
out of his pocket, day of Flexmore's
death, Dec. 18, 18SS ." 1 .snail nave
more to tell about this later on a good
deal more.
in tVio orpnini? of that dav I saw Dr.
Awdrey; he came to me with a face as
long as a fiddle.
"That's an unfortunate accident that
happened to you this afternoon," he said.
"It might have been worse," said I,
fpolini? mv nose. "I came plump down
on it. Wonder I didn't break it."
"I'm not speaking of that," said he, put
ting down his hat and seating himself,
nt, vnnr thlnkinz of your prop
erty." The poor old nag had put his
shoulder out and had to be killed, and
both shafts of the gig were smashed.
'U'oii If vour old horse had not been
thrown down, you would have been thou
sands out of pocket."
"You know what I mean; It Is an un
fortunate accident that prevented your
arriving in time for Flexmore to sign the
new will as be wished.
"Tlinre we differ. I do not regard the
accident as unfortunate from that point
of view."
WpII. what Is to be done about it? The
old will is virtually revoked."
"Hut actually it stands as good as ever
it was, and so it shall stand."
"nrmn(iln? I refuse to accent the
guardianship of Flexmore's child?"
"You can t reiuse. common sense win
not let you ; humanity will not let you ;
I will not let you. Have you seen ynn
Yeames since his uncle's death?"
'n. h lmd left thp. house five minutes
before I arrived. I hear he called at
my house, but I came by the other road.
Since then I have been unable to find him
"Timt'u n nitv. I should have liked
you to sec him as I saw him. He is so
confident of being his uncle's heir that
he has thrown off all restraint, every pre
tense of decency, and shows himself the
hectoring bully, the heartless rascal I
have always believed him. to be."
"imrwvsKlhle " he exclaimed. looking In
credulously at me, whom alone of all men
hp doubted and looked upon as misguid
ed by prejudice.
"I tell you It a fact, lie was Drutal
to little Laure, and he insulted Miss Dal-
-.,n..l before mv face. Why Uecause.
now tiiat he believes himself master of
his uncle's fortune, he wishes to break off
his engagement with her. lie has no
more intention of marrying her now than
he had tho first day he came to Coney
ford." "I can't understand you a man so
clear in Judgment on most things "
"Get that nonsense out of your head,
doctor. I tell you that I am no more
prejudiced against him tlian I am In
favor of you. He Is a belfish, heartless
"You will never make me believe that
of Lynn Yeanies." ,
"He shall make you believe It of him
self. Abstain from letting him know how
Flexmore's money is to be disposed of,
and watch him between now and the read
ing of the will. He already talks of send
ing the child away to a boarding school,
and, as I tell you, reproved Miss IMl
rymple before me for being too sympa
thetic and kind to her."
"Rut why should he hellevo himself to
be his uncle's heir?"
"Hecause ho fell Into a trap, and was
led to believe so by me. And I'll tell you
something else, doctor. He believed that
this now will was to revoke nn existing
will In Ills favor; and I am convinced
that ho stretched the cord that threw tho
gig over and delayed me, that this will
might not be signed; and nicely he has
defeated his own ends by It. I'd forgive
him for tliat If my nose had been broken."
"I think I can upset that theory, at
l-t," said Awdrey. "What time was it
when yon were thrown from tho glgf
"About two o'clock, as nearly as I can
reckon," said I.
"Good. Ho left Flexmore's houso to
fetch mo at one o'clock; ho was at my
houso at half-past, and ho waited thoro
for me until ten minutes past two."
Ho had proved an nllbl for Lynn, and
I had to admit 1 must ho in the wrong
on this point.
"And so you are, I am sure, on other
points resecting him," said the doctor.
"Wo shall see that. Keep your mind
unprejudiced, and watch that young man
during tho next four or llvo days," said
I, as I opened the door to let him out
Unfortunately, this chanco of clearing
his mind was denied to us. Tho noxt
morning, when I called at Flexmore
House, I heard that he had not been seen
since ho left, shortly after my departure,
to fetch Dr. Awdrey; nnd in tho courso
of the day I learned that he had gone to
London. This did not surprise mo. "lie's
gone to see a London solicitor about this
affair," I thought; "and may bo bled
pretty freely by my learned f riends 1"
Retimes on Thursday I called again
at tho house, for I had made up my mind
to visit tho inmates there every day,
knowing how long and dreary the days
must be for them in tho darkened house,
and that the child, at least, looked upon
me as a protecting friend. Miss Dalrym
ple wns bending over her work with a
worn and anxious look upon her sweet
face. Little Iiurc started up with a
terrified expression In her eyes, as though
she expected to see Lynn Ywimes with a
rope in his hand to haul her off to board
ing school, as 1 opened the sitting room
door. Roth of their poor faces lit up
with pleasure when I said :
"It's only I the old lawyer come to
bother ,you for some papers."
Laure ran up, threw her arms around
my neck, and kissed me; nnd, still hug
ging me, she whispered :
"Ycjii don't forget what you promised?"
"No," I whispered back. "No one shall
take you away from Nurse Gertrude."
"You are a nice old dear!" she said,
giving me another kiss ; and then she ran
away laughing, to whisper to Miss Dal
rymple all about her secret at once a
woman and a child.
I gossiped for the best part of an hour,
raking up all the news of tho village, for
there's nothing like trifling chat for peo
ple in trouble; and then, when Laure
went out of the room, I said:
"Well, my dear, have you had many
visitors since I saw you last?"
"A few acquaintances-ami Dr. Awdrey
that is all.
"Have you seen him or heard anything
about Mr. Yeames?" I asked.
"No; he has not come back from Lon
don. I am anxious about him. I fear
he is ill."
It seemed to me that if he were 111, the
first thing he would do, being n selfish
hrntP. would be to write and tell his
sweetheart of his suffering. The moment
a man of this kind feels not up to uio
hi.iirinrr nnlnt. hp whines for sympathy. I
considered it much more probable that
T.vnn trone to London to spend pomo
of his fortune in ndvnncc, and escape from
the lugubrious condition of tilings nt nomo
whilst his uncle lay dead at Flexmore
House. Of course, I kept this belief to
m-Hpf nml. nromisinc to drop in again
during the day, I left the house, and went
directly to Mrs. Yeames villa.

Good Sheep lliirn n Voor One.
A good sheep barn Is a poor one.
This may seem to be absurd, hut the
facts supiKirt such n statement. There
Is no question but that many Hocks are
rendered unhealthy nnd therefore less
productive by reason of too close
housing. In few sections do sheep need
moro than a windbreak and rain shed.
Soino of our best shepherds have kept
their llocka for decades with only such
sheds as would prevent tlte flock being
cxiwsed to direct winds, rain and snow
storms. The cut shows the typo of sheep
barn found on the farm of a success
ful shepherd, which might be copied
with success. In this Instance the
sheep are kept upon forage crops grown
In four adjacent lots. The tlock may
be turned Into nny lot nt pleasure.
It Is well to have this building
equipped with a Inrge ventilating win
dow In the end near the gable or two
small windows. such as shown In the
sketch. These, however, should he
equipped with n sash that may be
closed In severe weather.
Many farms where sheep aro kept
are equipped with n barn cellar in
which tho Hock has been kept with
'varying success. The barn cellar Is
an excellent place for sheep If rightly
j arranged. There should be plenty of
openings to the south, allowing sun to
reach all parts of the stable so as to
keep 'it thoroughly dry. Thorough
drainage Is essential.
I There must be ventilation nt the
rear of the stable. A bad practice Is to
keep the sheep In stables on stable
manure, says Farm and Home. The
fermenting manure destroys the color
and texture of wool. A hint which has
been worth many dollars to me is to
use only long straw, hay or weeds for
bedding sheep. If short straw or saw
dust Is used It gets Into the lleeco nnd
Is an everlasting nuisance.

The Missouri Experiment Station at

the most successful methods of fatten

I This bulletin summarizes the expe
rience and conclusions of about 1,000
I of the most experienced nnd successful
'cattle feeders of Missouri, Illinois and
I Iowa, and contains also a summitry of
the results of a largo number of tests
I with different kinds of feed, different
ages of cattle, etc., conducted by the
I Experiment Station of Columbia.
It considers such practical questions
nstlie most profitable age to fatten cat

' market demands,' the best sort of
roughness, etc. It Is Illustrated with
cuts of the different types of beef
cattle, Including excellent illustrations
of the fat steer herd exhibited by the
college this season at the Interstate
Fair, Kansas City, tho Missouri State
Fair, Sedalla, the American Royal,

Live Stock Exposition, Chicago. These
steers won nine championship prizes,
seventeen first prizes, sixteen second
prizes, seven third prizes nnd two
