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.

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 VtOTOT I i ; 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 lifted him to the lejr window seat., pur suers and pursued alike, loosened bjs collar, chafed his hands, batbed hfo temples, did everytnloc we eoaM I "Rought, and - Las been nas borne the .-rsature of has been made umler his per- Signature of or aomg, but ne lay there staring at the ceiling with clinched teeth. At last Royce bent and laid his ear against his breast. "It is no use," he said. "He is dead." 1 lokei to see them wince under the 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 eyes. "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 , 1. , , .1 O-l wan, wucic uiu uuici ltxy , turn me 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 an had come back Into the room and j was watching her curiously, j "Come, let us go," said the girL But Royce held back. "There has been a crime committed," he said slowly. "We m'ust see that it ts punished." "A crime? Oh, yes; but I forgive them, dear." "The crime against yourself you may forgive, but there was another crime murder" "There was no murder!" burst In 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, clasping her bands tightly la her lap to keep them stilL "Four years ago be cam from Paris here to spend the summer tie was ver IB bis heart "We bad been bring. bappUy, my daugh ter and but't or tbe -one HnXiety tu her not marrying. He met her and 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 daughter, monsieur was living stilL From that moment he was like a man possessed. At once he formed his plan, building I know not what hopes upon It He drilled us for two years in speaking the English; he took us for six months to Londres that we might bet ter learn. Day after day we took our lessons there, always and always Eng lish. Cecile learned ver well, mon sieur, but I not so well, as you can see. 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 as an angel oh, he could seem one when he chose; he told her that I was In poverty; he made her to weep, vhich was what he desired. She promised to bring us money. She was' ver' good. My heart went out to her. . Then, just as she had arisen to start homeward, In Cecile came, crying, sobbing, stain ed with blood." She shuddered and clasped her hands before her eyes. "But you have said it was not mur der, madame," I said to the younger woman. "Nor was it!" she cried. "Let me tell you, monsieur. I reached the great building, which my husband had al ready pointed out to me. I went up 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 ! "He stared up at me with such a look of dismay and anger on his face that I was fairly frightened; then, in the same instant, before I could draw breath, before -I could say another He feU back and down. word, his face grew purple, monsieur, and he fell forward on his desk, on his hand, on the knife which was clasped in It. I tried to check the blood, but could not, it poured forth In such a stream. I knew not what to do. I was distracted, and In a frenzy I left the place and hurried to our lodgings. That Is the truth, monsieur; believe me." T do believe you," I said. "It was then," went on her mother, "that that man yonder had another In spiration. Before It had been only what you call blackmai' a few thou sands, perhaps a pension. Now it was something more. He was playing for a greater stake. I do not know all that be planned. He found Celeste suspect ed of having killed her father. He must get her released at any cost, so he wrote a note" "Yes!" I cried. "Yes, of course; I see. Miss Holladay under arrest was be rond his reach." "Yes," she nodded, "so he wrote a iote. Oh, you should have seen him in those days! He was like some furious wild beast. But after she was set free Celeste did not come to us as she had promise. We saw that she suspected as, that she wish to have nothing more to do with us. So Victor commanded that I write another letter, Imploring ber. offering to explain." She stopped l moment to control herself. "Ah, -hen I think of it! She came, moo- (To be Continued.)

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 estry. 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. WWVW wjvm gAww v . and development.
