He searched the jail quarters,
and failed to find trace of Von
Thiele, supposed he had. been re

not until Ren W. French, deputy
sheriff Irom Orrvjille, Butte
county, California, called for the
prisoner to take him to 'a barber
shop, that it-was definitely known
that Von Thiele had escaped.
How he gained access to the

padlock on the cell was said to
have been unlocked, officers de
clared it -could not be removed
without aid from the outside.

' "May I come in?" said Eteon

but I notice that vbe whole famUy
are 'here, and I prefer to tell the
news to you all at once." i
"News about what?" said Mene-
laos. ' "''-f-': :;;-'::'
r "About Orestes. It's partly good
news, and partly bad.' In Ah,
firsj. place, the young man has
avenged his father's death, lie
has killed, Aegistbus."
"That's something like!" said
Menelaos. "This puts him rather
high in my esteem. If It weren't
for his mother "
"Can't . you overlook his moth
er, said Hermione, "now that he
has" behaved so well? Now be just;
father, and admit I have chosen
a; good husband."
"If this qualifies for the duties
of a husband, why, he qualifies,"
aid Helen. "BhI he won't be
avenging murders all his life, and
I hope you will marry him. If you
do, for other reasons than hi?
adroitness in killing Aegisthus.
Where is he. Eteoneus? ' I'd like
to meet Orestes." .. . v -
''He's, on Khe .war. I. .under
stand," said Eteoneus, "but ! 1
doubt It he calls 'unless you give
him a special invitation. He
thinks the family, doesn't approve
of him, with the exception of your
daughter, - and just now he's -well,
rather - tease and sensitive.
I'd like very much to see him,"
said Menelaos: "Is he going to
return that armor' you lent-him,
Steoheus? It was my best set.
"Oh, he'll bring it back, Mene
laos; I fancy: he's reliable in such
matters. He'll be wanting to get
away from that place as soon as
he. can, and this would.be' the
natural spot for him to hurry to.
"He won't care to stayiaear his
mother "very long," said Helen.
"This is the worst that has hap
pened to Clytemnestra to have
her lover executed right on the
estate, where she thought herself
so powerful! Eteoneus, what did
"And what did she do?"
Helen looked at him so steadily
that they . all looked at her, and
noticed that the color had left
"You have bad news, too," she
said. "Tell us everything."?
"I see you've gue3ed tt," said
Eteoneus. "and that makes it eas
ier to tell.1 Clytemnestra 's dead."
: Helen rose to her feet, as if
she were about to leave them.
Then, she stood perfectly still,
while '.he others talked.
"How did she die, Eteoneus?"
I "Orestes killed her." ,
: "No!" cried Hermoine.
; "He killed her." ; ,
"Not his own motherj" i
""His own mother."
"Helen," said Menelaos, "this Is
a good deal worse than my bro
ther's death. There is no forgive
ness in Heaven or on earth for
such a crime. Orestes is a lost
soul. I hope I may never see "
"I think Hermoine Is fainting,"
said Helen. : , "
."I'm all right," said Hermoine.
"1 don't blame you father It's
impossible. Orestes loved "her,
and he bad the deepest sense" of
filial ' duty it's ,i simply impos
"If you mean he didn't do it,
you're wrong" said Eteoneus. "He
killed her. It was one filial duty
against another, and he took ven
geance all around. He knows you
won't like it nobody seems to ap
prove.. That's why he's sensitive
abouc 'coming here." t
"He can neve, come here." said
Alt aeiaos. 'My wife knew how dif
ficult it would be to meet the
murderess of my brother i certain
ly she will never be asked to re-;
caive in our own house the son:
who killed her sister.. That mar
riage is - sc-ltled -once for - all- J.
take It your special invitation Is'
"For the time only,'' said Helen.
"I'm - sorry for Orestes;- He as . a
lost soul, .Menelaos, .but I'-dOn'X
want him to be more lost than
necessary. Imagine bow. he will
eel when 'he realizes what he ha?
done! Perhaps we ought to send
for him now, rather than later.
Yes, send for him, Menelaos!"
"I can't follow, that,' said Men
elaos. ' , . Jy
. "Nor I," said Eteoneus. .""These
new ideaa go too.' far. Killing
Aegisthus "Was only proper, of
course, but when it comes to kill
ing your, mother 111 ; not open
the gate, to a man who has killed
his ownl mother. I was going to
tell you, as another piece of news."
continued Eteoneus, "that Pyrrhus
will probably be here in a day or
two. . He started more , quickly
than we; expected,' and I told the
man we cent, according .to your
instructions, not to turn him back4
if he - had got more than lhalf
way." - .. - - -,,- s - -
"I don't want Orestes to come
now, said Hermoine. .'.'It1 would
be too terrible with the whole
household around. I think I had
better see him first alone." ' ' ,
" "You'll see him nowhere," said
her father. "For this family
Orestes does not exist 1 . ,
You aren't thinking of him. still
as a husband, are you?" r
"Certainly. I He Is my. ' hus
band." , . . . . . . "
"Hermoine, don't tell me you
would marry a man who bad killed
his mother!.' , - - .
"I Khali marry him." .
f "Don't say that,- Hermoine--think
what you're saying! His
wife will be as he I. the compan
ion of his sin, utterly cursed. You
will never enter a rood home,' nor
sit down to eat with friends, nor
even die in peace, nor rest In a
;quiet graved If you think you
Jove him, remember you must hav-j
no- children the curse must die
with yon ! I can., imagine how
this horrible deed, but you don't
yet realize the horror. Think it
over quietly for a few days; you'K
see that I'm right."
"You have told me ' the truth
about my future," said Hermoine.
"but it still Is my future. I be
long to Orestes, to his curse, to hit
imlsery. I could never respect
myself If I 'deserved him now.
You are adventurous In battle, so
I'm told,-and mother is adventur
ous in " love. There are people
who are- adventurous in duty
who will carry a thing through
not because it Is pleasant, nor
because they like it, nor because U
will make anybody happy, but be
cause it is right.";
''You call it being adventurous
n ' duty to kill your mother?"
k'Ini- some circumstances, per
laps, but I was thinking of myself,
ind of my duty to . Orestes, I
hall go through with it." -
"Whether or not it makes any
body happy, eh?"
'Menelaos,' said Helen, "you
were wise to say that Hermoine
needs time to realize what all this
means. Give her time. You. don't
need to tell her to think It over.
She will be able to think of noth
ing else. In a few days we can all
talk more sanely.. Nothing matters
vefy much after what haa oc
curred. Nothing new could seem
very bad, not even her marriage
to. Orestes. ; But Orestes himself
must make fresh plans 'for his life,
and We can wait till we see him or
hear from him.' ... , .
'"Till we hear from him?" said
Menelaos. "He can't come to this
house. ' " '' ' -r ....'
."He probably won't come? now,
anyway," said Bteoneus. "I .re
member they say. he is going on
a religious journey, a pilgrimage
to enshrine somewhere, to see if
he can rest his mind. Oue way
and another, your relatives do a
lot ot traveling, Menelaos."
, fThat's in the past now," said
Menelaos. "It's time to settle
down, and my immediate family
are home to stay, I believe. - Her
moine may think this over as long
as she likes, Helen- but I shall
ndw proceed on an entirely new
plan. I'm going to rind out if
Pyrrhus will marry her. You
vj-ere right in the -first place. If
he. will have her, w'll let Orestes
go on his pilgrimage, and it will
be a . long one. If I criticised
Pyrrhus, at least It was for faults
I could understand. He's over
rated, but he's a real man, and he
can give , Hermoine the kind of
home she ought' to have. It is
providential that he got started
quickly on thls;vislt." "
i"Oh, Menelaos,-; you're quite
wrong to force the question'
again!"-said Helen. "Let the
whole problem rest awhile. - Her
moine. doesn't' need , to marry,: if j
slje prefers to Btay with us, and
certainly she must not marry a
man she doesn't love."
' Now see here, Helen, you' make
me very angry! You stirred up
this whole quarrel about' Pyrrhus
if It hadn't been for you we
never should have thought of him
again. You've been persuading
me with all sorts of Insidious ar
guments, and these recent events
have - -completed my conversion.
Why do you get on the other
side jnow? Hermoine may think
it over. When Pyrrhus comes,
I'll speak' to him; - ' Perhaps ' he
won't, have anything to do with
us, but if he'll consider the pro
posal; we'll go on from there.""
- "I'm sorry my future has given
you so much trouble," said Her
moine, "and I wish you wouldn't
put yourself to this unnecessary
bother -with Pyrrhus. But I'm
not In a position to say anything.
And you know best what you want
to do. If I have your permission
I'll go now." . . , r
"Now, I. wonder . why Helen
went - with her," said Menelaos.
'I'd Hike to heart what they're
saying to each other, in private.
Why, do you think my wife has
chanced : her . mind . about Pyr
"She hasnt, I should say, but
she sees It's .useless," said Eteon
