was kept up In a lively manner, and Ik

When doal Wilcox wont to hod that

It wax that killed my dear huslwnd.
Yesterday ono of this man's boys was
bathing In tho stream which flows nt
the root of tho hill yonder," said tho
lady, pointing from tho window ns she
spoke, "and, In divine to I'lck ohjocW
from the mud In tho lxittom of tho
river, found this weapon."
Hero Mrs. Dolaro produced an Ivory
bandlisl stiletto uhi the hnndln of
which wascurod the Initials "I V."
"(Iroat Kims," exclaltnud Wilcox,
"wo shall prove that snako k'11'"' soon

Then a loni; conversation nnsut-d and
the workman was asked to re)at Ills

(ii( had little bloa of his crime IioIiib
discovered so soon, If ever, and that
he was probably on tils way Kail. So
they did not raise a hue and cry at oneo
but decided that It would bo far wiser,
and more prudent, to be sure they woro
tight before koIuk ahead.
Tho next day they all starltsl for
tjanta liosa, the county seat, whom the
trial was to lie held, and Wilcox was at
last full of ItopO that tho unfortunate
Anton would s-hui bo reloased.
A consultation was held with the law
ytirs. but they did not deem it wise to
take steps to Gocnro a warrant for
Velasquez's arreit; they advised wall
lii until after the trial of Anton Key
man. The trial was set for ten days later,
and al that time nearly every adult In
habitant of San l'noln was at .Santa Kosa.
The witnesses who had anpoared be

Then the hoy who had found the all

drew his attention to the fact. Tie
lawyer understood its puriort in a mo

hut t.uch us tho invasion demanded, he
culled upon tho judtfo to desist in In.
summing up, and asked that further

The judjfo. who was strictly 1 111 par

that this was n mattor worthy thu ut

of one thing sho had tson scrupu

death uttered lu tho hearing of her
daughter. Still, Arnitda knew of the
manner In which her father had come tc
his sad end.
Hut to the girl tho tragic nllilr had
never been so real and terrible as to her
nicther, and lu recent ye.irii, aa tho wal

Tho ciiiivorsntUm at the opening of
this clmit4'r might lead one to Imagine
that Aruiida was of a rather peevish
temperament, but such was not the case.
She ha I justcauso to complain, and was
literally bored to death. Sho had been

of pttitaloous and suspenders during

dust ns the concluding words fell from
Armlda's llpstliuro was a knock on tho
door, which was answered by tho maid,
who took a card from tho hctl-hoy and
handed It to hur young mistress.
Aruiida glanced at It languidly and
then turning to hur mother with a pilli
ons g.u on her sweet face said:
"Who Is hero now, my doar?"
"That horrid, vulgar Mr. Illodger,
who is so fond of saying: 'I, idles, Mr.
Stephen Hhslger nt your srvIoj.'"
Hero Aruiida roso from her reclining
posture and gavo an Imitation of that
gentleman's unique stylo of Introducing
himself; tliuu turning to her maid she
"Tell tho Isiy to show him tip."
As tho boy went away, something
like a gurgling Utter sounded ns If coin
ing from that progressive youth. In
lest than a 111 1 11 11 to the Ciller was at the
pirlor door, which showed that ho must
h.ivo waited either outside, or very
near the elevator, for ho certainly did
not hnvo time to 0011111 from tho olllco.
The visitor was a man wulghlugsomo
thing lu the neighborhood of two hun
dred pounds, and had n face ns round
and ns red as tho setting sun on n
winter's day. Stop by stop hu had
risen from tlio lowest ranks, until ho
had llually attained the mighty distinc
tion uf bultiga millionaire, said millions
having lioen noiulrod by the practical
application of tho bcIouuc uf turning
tallow Into soap.
In his early days ho had known Mr.
Wilcox Intimately, and tho acquaintance
had recently boon renewed with pleas
ure on Isith sldos. I'onsoijiioutly Mrs.
Dclnro and her daughter felt It Incum
bent umiii them to entertain thogunllo
man when ho called.
Since converting his soa-bolllng busi
ness into a stock company and thou sell
ing out his Interest at an enormous
profit, Mr. Itlodger had found a great
dual of time oil his hands. Ills wife had
long since passed to Ibo "hotter laud."
and ns ho had no relatives to hamper
him he deiot -1 his time pretty much to
his own company and that of his llfteen
year old boy, who was, at least physical
ly, following In his father's footsteps -bidding
fair to outrival tho celebrity of
tho l'at Hoy In Pickwick.
The older lllodgor had, like many of
his Ilk, lu these his Wtcrdays of wealth
and leisure, turned b s attention to
books and study In the fond hope that
ho might pass for an educated man in
that society toward which his Inclina
tions and ambition now led hlui. Thu

kuowlislgo which Is soexceedlugly dun

In miserably bad Hngllsh.
Recently this genius had developed
Into it Isiet mid he wns never seen out
without his scrap book under his arm,
lu which he had pasted his own elforts,
written on foolscap in 11 large, round
hand, together with numerous choice
nieces which he had ulipMd at odd
times from tho columns of he Sunday
p.iM'rs. As this worthy Individual en
tered the parlor be Uiwed low nnd said
with it broad smile, precisely as Aruiida
had mimicked htm a moment before:
"Hood morning ladles; Mr. Stephen
lllodgor at your sen ice."
The two ladies returned the greeting
and the usual every day iiiestious re
garding health and the weather having
foltuwcd, Mr. Hlodgur drew from the
side pocket of a loud-patterned tourist
