CHAPTER XX .-Continued.)
Montgomery did take some dinner,
keeping up a running fire of sarcasm' all
the time, which greatly disconcerted his
host, but affected Judith not at all; for
she felt convinced that he had some sub
ject of mutual interest in view, or he
would not be there. : "
. "Now," said Montgomery, after he had
got himself into a more genial mood,
"suppose we proceed to business; for I
guess that you begin to think I am not
here altogether for pleasure, much as I
love you. But, ah I I forgot; you are
too pious to transact business on a Sun
day:" . .-; . ..,' ' , '.
- "There are exceptions to' all rules, you
know," grinned his host.
"That is to say, you don't object to
business when anything's to be got by
it on. any . day. This Is your adver
tisement, isn't it?" he went on, with a
sudden change of tone, and producing a
newspaper from his pocket :
A . look of eager interest came - Into
Judith's face, and her father began to
brighten np as he answered, "Yes."
"Very well, then; I know where to put
my hand .upon the lad at this, very mo
ment" ' ; .
"You do?' cried the listeners both to
gether. :i. -i'i T' ' l '
. "I do. : But before , we go any far
ther, t have two conditions to make. In
the first place, yon must make a clean
breast to -me of ..everything you know
concerning this youth. ; .' You must tell
me your motives for hunting him down;
and. lastly, if there is anything to be got,
which I am certain there la by the trou

'Protesting that he -would speak simply
the bare truth, Mr. Porter proceeded to
' relate the same story that he had told
Silas, suppressing, however, the mention
of the locket He knew that if he could
once come face to face with Silas' friends
that locket would be an all-powerful
lever to raise the price of his silence. To
the narrative, however, he added other
particulars telling how, ' when he had
gone up to the city upon certain busi
ness of his own, he had seen the woman
Iwho had committed the child to his care
coming ont of the office of Messrs. Fogle
& Quick; how he had followed her and
' heard her ask for a ticket for a certain
station in Hertfordshire'; how he had
taken a ticket for the same place, and
got ont upon the same platform.
t "And her destination was a mansion
balled The Willows?' " put in Mr. Mont
gomery. "You see, I know a little," he
added, in answer to the narrator s aston
ished look; so be cautious.
Her destination was "The Willows."
He had loitered about the neighborhood,
In the hope of gleaming some intelli
gence; but all he could learn was that
the woman's name was Madame Berne
that she was housekeeper and confiden
tial friend to Mr. George Morant, the
(gentleman who resided at "The Wil
lows;" and that those two, with the
servant, constituted-the entire household.
"Nevertheless.: I had learned Quite
enough to tell me that Master Silas was
a family secret that might turn out un
common profitable one day," he conclcd-
d. .... ; -
"But how did you contrive to track
this woman without being recognized ?
STonr face, once seen, is not easily for-
Bptten." ' -.
I "Well, you see, 1 was very cautious,
nd kept at a good distance behind her
except when I had to press close at
jthe ticket office, to overhear what place
the asked for. Then I put my handker
chief up to my face, as though I had the
toothache. And she never once looked
tight or left as she walked, but stalked
Straight along, with her eyes right be
fore her. Well, that Silas had not bolt
led more than a month, when I got a let
ter from Fogle & Quick, to say that he
Was come into an annuity, and I was to
bend him up to their office atonce."
"But I cannot perceive "what hold you
bave upon this youth. . What is the se
rious charge you threaten to bring
against him?" '' '
"Well, he carried away a suit of
Slothes with him, for one thing," said
It. Porter. " "The other thing is for
deserting his wife!"
'Deserting -his 'Wife!" echoed Mont
gomery, in a loud tone of astonishment
"Do you mean to say he is married?" ;
"To Judith there." f K 'V ',-
Montgomery was' struck speechless
(with astonishment and, for a moment,
could only stare with the most bewil
dered of expressions, which quickly
merged into one of intense satisfaction.
- "Mora food for revenge upon that
woman," was his first thought .: "Well,
Ivou have astonished me this time!" he
cried. "But I should have thought Silas

some little difficulty I discovered his

window with his arm very lovingly

conversation with the servant next door.
and learned a few particulars; but until
this moment it never, occurred to me that
this girl precisely answers to the de
scription given me by Rodwell. It s the
same, and I have killed two birds with
one stone!"' : '..'." s '.'-' i".'
Long and earnest was the conversation
that ensued between the trio. But it is
not necessary to repeat it in this plttce.
Both its explanations and results will
appear hereafter. --
Between six and seven o'clock, on the
next evening, an elderly man. dressed
like a gentleman farmer, hastily entered
the shop of a picture dealer, situated in
the West End, and asked, in a nervous,
impatient manner, to inspect some very
pretty water-color drawings that were in
the window; , The - shopman - produced
them. Instead, however, of examining
the picture Itself, the gentleman seemed
chiefly interested in the back of It It
was . growing dusk, : and he carried the
picture to the door and carefully exam
ined the blank surface at the back. In
one corner was faintly inscribed in pen
cil the word "Clara." ; -
With an exclamation of pleasure, and
a brightened face, hi went back to the
counter, and asked the 'shopman for the
address of the painter. The young man
hesitated. "I beg-pardon, sir," he said;
"but it is not usual to give the addresses
of the ladies and gentlemen who work
for us without their permission."
- "-Let me see your master, said the
In a few minutes the prmcipal nimseir
came forward. ' '
"I wish to purchase all the drawings
you have by- this artist, and at the same
time to be favored, with her address. I
am not asking this for the gratification
of idle curiosity. The lady I believe to
be a very near and dear member of my
family, whom I have lost sight of. for
several years whom I believed to be
dead. Five days ago I was looking in
at the window of a - picture dealer's in
the Strand, When I saw exposed for sale
a water-color painting, representing my
own cottage down in Suffolk.. I have
just such a picture at home, and there
was a peculiarity of touch about this
one that led me to believe, wild as the
thought seemed then, that both were the
work of one hand. I went into the shop,
and purchased the picture. I was not
deceived. Inscribed in a corner at the
back was the word . 'Clara.' , But the
salesman could give me no information
about the ' artist; they had" bought it
about two years ago, with several others,
of a young girl whom they had never
seen since. My nephew dined with me
that day, and I told him of the circum
stance. He at once requested the affair
to be left in his hands. ' He came to my
hotel last night to tell me that he had
inquired, and caused others to inquire, of
every likely picture dealer,, but had not
met with the slightest success. As this
was my last day In the city I thought
would take a look round the picture
shops myself..' I have been about all
day, and was just about to give up my
search' in despair when I caught sight
of these.' I thought they looked like her
work, and, sure enough, here is her sig
nature In the corner, xet stay a mo
ment; to make assurance doubly sure, I
will show you her likeness, painted some
six years ago, . You will be then able to
tell me whether It is the same."
He produced the identical miniature
that Silas had found in . Little Bethle
hem, and which, it will be remembered,
he had left in a pocket of the clothes
deposited with Mr. Jonathan Rodwell.
The shopkeeper hesitated 'no- longer;
but at once handed over to him the re
quired address. The gentleman purchas
ed the pictures at a very handsome price.
got into-a . cab that the shop boy-had
fetched . for , him, and, drove" away in
the direction of the northwest. v
He arrived at Mrs. Wilson's about 8
o'clock, and knocked at the door. To
his inquiries, the servant replied, "Miss
Clara has gone with missis to the' play
house; and I do not expect she will be
home until late." -'; iJ.Kiii.i
"Does she frequent places of amuse

How unfortunate! But I must see
her to-night at whatever hour she may
return. I will come back at twelve.
-. Mary looked very much astonished at
the idea of such a late visit Mr. Jona
than Rodwell ordered the cabman to
drive to the nearest hotel,-where he en
gaged a bed and waited impatiently the
passing away of time.
At 12 o clock he knocked again at
Mrs. Wilson's door. They had not re
turned. -"Would Mary -permit him to
come in and wait?" Mary did not like
the idea of admitting a stranger at such
an hour, and she alone in the house.
"But he looks a gentleman," she thought,
"and he Is old enough to be my father."
"Don't be afraid; I am not a burglar,
my dear," said Mr. Jonathan, smiling.
and slipping a coin into her hand,

that when we presented ourselves at the
pit pay-place we were informed" that
every seat was full. At the. upper boxes
. we were received with the same intima
: tion. '
On -the opposite side of the road -was
a ' row of billboards of various theaters.

I did not like this arrangement- Since
I had seen Mr. Rodwell there, I desired
to avoid the Corinthian; besides which.
I might encounter Joslah.. or Mr. Mont
gomery, which - would be awkward; for,
as I have before mentioned, neltlw
Clara nor Mrs. Wilsou knew anything
of my theatrical : employment But as
I could offer no plausible objection to I
Wilson's proposition, I was fain I

The novelty of the situation, the bril-

story that was - being represented, its
vivid , reality, the passionate earnestness
of the actors, the enthusiasm of every
one around, and the heat of the atmos-
prere all this . was overpowering to ;a J
mcibidly sensitive mind, totally unused
to excitement of any kind.
As I was leaving -my seat with Clara 1
leaning upon my , arm, I noticed a stage
box in the upper tier. There,' attentive
ly observing us through a lorgnette,' was
Mr. Rodwell.. As quickly as possible, I
turned away, filled with that vague, bod
ing fear which always oppressed me at
the sight of that man.1 We did not re
turn to our first seat,: but sat at the
back, where it was much cooler, to witr
ness the'remainder of the performance.
Presently a man came and ' seated
mself in the rear of us. I thought
recognized him as an .emplove behind
the scenes, and I kept my back towards
him lest he should recognize me. As the
play drew towards a close I felt a hand
laid upon my shoulder, and on turning
round, saw that this man had risen from
his seat and was making signs to me.
Clara and Mrs. Wilson were breathlessly
intent upon the scene, which was the
last I glanced at them, rose quietly
and moved away without their being

his stage dress.

CHILDREN AND CANDY.
London Physician Blames Sweets for
Toang Folks' Deterioration.
In the course of a lecture delivered
in London recently Prof. Ogston said
that after many years of medical ex
perience among children hewas con
vinced there were many in whom the
tendency to sugar gluttony had be
come so strong in their infatuation
that it resembled' the craving 5 of t; a

showed early disappearances . of ,, the
teeth, and other grave troubles. He
thought future scientists would place
the evils of sugar gluttony on a pedes
tal as conspicuous as the drink ques
tion as causing deterioration of indi
viduals and races.

the east end of London, who do a
huge business in these goods at four

There is a lot of adulteration in the
sweet trade, unfortunately, and.
strangely, it has never received proper
attention. Cochineal is used on a very

The Land Is Always There.
The farm land sales in McLean
county, Illinois, on Wednesday num
bered 165, the average price was $135
an acre, and the amount of money in
volved was $640,000, as against $497,-
000 a year before and $346,000 two
The rising prices of land in the Illi
nois corn belt thus shown are typical
of a change of attitude toward in
vestments that is going on all over the
United States. - ,
The time was when the great ma
jority of the American people regarded
land as the most desirable of invest
ments.. Of course, this belief was
largely due to the fact that forms of
investment now familiar did not then
exist But it was partly due to a
sound Instinct whose workings have
been obscured by the more brilliant at
tractions of corporation" securities and
which is now reasserting itself. " ' '.
Of course, most' of these purchases
of land in this Illinois county were
made by men who intend; personally
to work the farms. But undoubtedly
some of them were made by .men. who
are not now farmers and may never
be men who are active In - business
ana tne professions. Such men are
buying productive farms because they
feel that no other investment is - so
A man may be crowded out of his
profession, his mercantile ventures
may fail from causes wholly beyond
his control, the corporations in which
he has invested money may pass divi
dends and default on their bonds. But
the 'returns from good land are as cer
tain as the return of seed time and
harvest : -
Through business depressions and
financial panics and political revolu
tions the land is always there and al
ways yielding its fruits to labor. It is
the surest form of Investment because
it" is the foundation of all wealth.

Take Care of the Farm Team.
The farm team during the busy
season should be taken care of prop
erly. . When taking a drive to town
don't rush the' farm horses. If the
farmer is without a driving team or
horse, he should not forget that fast
driving on the road means a loss of
flesh and is a hard strain on the work
horses. It pays to keep the harness
adjusted, oiled and made pliable at all
times to prevent sore shoulders and
galls. Keep it so adjusted as. to fit
the horse it is intended for. Not only
should the harness be adjusted prop
erly, but the farm implements as well. 1
See to It that the clevis and whiffle-
trees are doing their work at a proper
angle and that all implements are be
ing ran smoothly so as to reduce the
draft as much as possible. V.r
When a hot day's work is over, It
is a good plan to wash the parts cov
ered by the harness, ' especially : the
shoulders and back, with cold s salt
water. Look well to the feet and see
that they are, kept .clean; if there is
dirt lodged in the hoofs remove it, and
keep the feet looking clean. ' : :'

out, will have much to do in: keeping
the work team comfortable and in
getting the most out of them. . . .. j
