But a sudden light gleamed in the
notary's eyes.
"Wait, messieurs!" lie cried. "A mo

it now. it was tne link which was
wanting and you have supplied it
Holladay, a millionaire of America, his
wife, Mnie. Alix. She did not live in
the villa then, messieurs. Oh, no. She
was very poor, a nurse; anything to
make a little money. Her husband,
who was a fisherman, was drowned
and left her to take care of the chil
dren as best she could."
He bad got down another book and
was running his fingers rapidly down
the page, his finger all a-tremble with
excitement. Suddenly he stopped with
a little cry of triumph.
"Here it is, messieurs!' See!"
Under the date of June 10, 1876, was
an entry of which this is the English:
Holladay. Hiram W.. and Elizabeth hla I
; States of America; from Celeste Alix.
; widow of Auffuste Alix, her daughter
' Celeste, aged five months. All claim sur
' rendered In consideration of the payment
of 25,000 francs.
j Mr. Royce caught up the book and
glanced at the back. It was the "Rec
ord of Adoptions."
N a moment we were hurrying along
the street in the direction the nota
ry had pointed out to us. Martigny
was already out of sight, and we f
hau licea or liaste. My head was in a
whirl. So Frances Holladay was not j
really the daughter of ihe dead million-
aire! The thought compelled a com-j
plete readjustment of my point of

I We had reached the beach again, and
we rurnea aiong it in tne airection or j
the cliffs. Far ahead I saw a man hur-
rylng in the same direction, I could
guess at what agony and danger to
himself. The path began to ascend,
and we panted up it to the grassy
down which seemed to stretch for
miles and miles to the northward.
Right before us was a little wood, In
the midst of which I caught a glimpse
of a farmhouse.
B We ran toward It, through a gate and
up the path to the door. It was closed,
but we heard from within a man's ex
cited voice, a resonant voice which I
knew well. I tried the door. It yield
ed, and we stepped into the hall. The
voice came from the ropm at the right.
It was no time for hesitation. We
sprang to the door and entered,
j Martigny was standing In the middle
of the floor, fairly foaming at the
mouth, shrieking out commands and
imprecations at two women who cow
ered in the farther corner. The elder
one I knew at a glance; the younger
my heart leaped as I looked at her
was it Miss Holladay? No, yet strange
ly like.
He saw their startled eyes turn past
him to us and swung sharply round.
For an Instant he stood poised like a
serpent about to strike; then I saW bja
eyes fix In a frightful stare, hla face
turned livid, and with a strangled cry
he fell back and down. Together ire

oiow, out iney ciia not. The younger
woman went slowly to the window and
stood there sobbing quietly; the other's
face lit up with a positive blaze of joy.
"So," she exclaimed in that low, vi
brant voice I so well remembered "so
he Is dead!"
Royce gazed at her a moment In as
tonishment. "Mme. Alix," he said at last, "you
know our errand."
She bowed her bead.
"I know it, monsieur," she answered.
"But for him there would have been
no such errand. As it is, I will help you
all I can. Cecile," she called to the
woman at the window, "go and bring
your sister to gentlemen."
The younger woman dried her eyes
and left the room.
Celeste came In slowly, listlessly. It
gave me a shock to see the pallor of her
face. Then she glanced up and saw
Royce standing there. She drew in
her breath with a quick gasp, a great
wave of color swept over her cheeks
and brow, a great light sprang into her
"Oh, JohnP she cried and swayed to
ward him.
He had her In his arms, against his
heart, and the
glad tears sprang to
my eyes as I looked at them.
"And I have come to take you away,
my love," he was saying.
"Oh, yes; take me away," she sobbed.
She stopped, her eyes on the window

color died out of her cheeks again.
"He, at least, has paid the penalty,"
said Royce.
j She was sobbing helplessly upon his
shoulder, but as the moments passed
j she grew more calm and at last stood
' upright from him. The younger wom

j was watching her curiously,

But Royce held back.
"There has been a crime committed,"
he said slowly. "We m'ust see that it

"A crime? Oh, yes; but I forgive
them, dear."
"The crime against yourself you may
forgive, but there was another crime

Cecile Alix. "I swear it to yon, mon
sieur. Do you understand?"
I saw Miss Holladay wince at the
ether's voice,. and Royce saw It too.
"I must get her to the inn," he said.
Stay and get the story, Lester. Then
We'll decide what it is best to do."
He led her away, out of the house
and down the path, not once looking
tack. I watched them till the trees hid
them, and then turned to the women. .
"Now," I said, "I shall be happy to
bear the slory."
. "It was that maa yonder who was
the1 cause of It all," began the mother,

proposed marriage. He was vex good
he asked no dowry, and, besides, my
daughter was twenty-five years old
past her first youth. .But she attracted
him, and they were married. 1 He took
her back to Paris, where he had a little
theater, a hall of the dance, but he
grew worse again and came back here.
It was then that he found out that I
had another daughter, whom I had giv
en to a rich American. " I was-ver
poor, monsieur," she added plteously.
"Yes, madame, I know," I said,
touched by her emotion.
"So he wrote to friends in Amerlque
and made questions about M. Holla
day. He learned oh, he learned that
he was ver rich; what you call a man
of millions and that his daughter my

I was too old. Then at last we reached
New York, and my daughter this one
was sent to see M. Holladay, while I
was directed that I write-to Celeste
to Mile. Holladay. She came that ver
afternoon," she continued, "and I told
her that it was I who was her mother.
He was with me and displayed to her
the papers of adoption. She could not
but be convinced, He talked to her

My heart went out to her. . Then, just
as she had arisen to start homeward,

She shuddered and clasped her hands
before her eyes.
"But you have said it was not mur

In the lift; I entered the office, but saw
no ne. I went on through an open
door and saw an old man sitting at a
desk. I inquired if Mr Holladay was
there. The old man glanced at me and
bowed toward another door. I saw it
was a private office and entered it.
The door swung shut behind me. There
was another old man sitting at a desk,
sharpening a pencil."
"'Is it you, Frances?' he asked.
" 'No,' I said, stepping before him.
It is her sister, M. Holladay !

of dismay and anger on his face that

"It was then," went on her mother,
"that that man yonder had another In

something more. He was playing for
a greater stake. I do not know all that

he wrote a note"
"Yes!" I cried. "Yes, of course; I see.

"Yes," she nodded, "so he wrote a

Senator Fulton expects soon to
be forced into a struggle in the
Senate, against the repeal of the
Timber and Stone act. It has
been reported that the Commit
tee on Public Lands, and cham
pions of this policy intend to
get the bill to a vote if possible
this session. Senator Fulton
has gathered data showing the
unappropriated landin Oregon to
be about 20,000,000 acres, a con
siderable portion of which is
timber, and he is also ready to
prove to the senate that most
Oregon timber land when at a
moderate altitude, is susceptibFe
of more profitable uses than for
His figures show that if the
government allows the state only
10 per cent of the funds derived
from timber sales and keeps all
of the range leasing charge,
Oregon will profit only at the
rate of 2 or 3 cents an acre per
year. With the support that is;
expected from Washington, also
heavily timbered west of the
Cascades, the Oregon senator
hopes to have the domain of his.
