    The Roupell Mys t e r y
A u s t y n
F or a period of two weeks immediately
following the death of Mine. Ho-ipei!.
both H a rrie t and Emily Weldon rem ain­
ed In a «rate of seeluaion w ithin the
chateau. By the provisions l Mine. R ou­
ped s will, in the absence of other claim ­
ants, her fortune was equally divided
between her nieces.
It was a lovely Ju n e morning. The
girls had received no one since the death
of their aunt. H arriet, however, did uot
lose sight of the fact th at she owed a
duty to the living. It seemed seltish and
wicked to pass the precious hours in
m ourning for one whom she could not re­
call, while a fate so dreadful hung over
her lover’s head.
Emily, who readily
surm ised the sta te of her sister's feelings,
was not backward in adm inistering what
comfort she could. She had w ritten re­
peatedly to I)r. Paul Mason, urging him
to spare neither labor nor money in his
endeavors to extricate Van L ith from his
terrible position.
One morning, looking out of the w in­
dow, H arriet presently espied the sturdy
figure of the doctor coming a t a swinging
gait across the park under the great trees.
He had arrived in Yilleneuve by the
m orning train, and made a short cut
across the fields, instead of coming by the
road through the village.
F o r the first time since the death of
her a u n t, Emily Weldon was In tolerable
spirits. The cloud which had lowered so
heavily over the future seemed lifting at
According to the report of Dr.
Mason, there was a t last a possibility of
the terrible m ystery which enshrouded
all their lives being cleared away— some
hope th a t her sister’s lover, whom she
believed to be innocent, would be freed
from the awful charge which hung over
As they walked along following the
path w hich led them through the forest
of Yilleneuve, much of H a rrie t's usual
gaiety and .sprightliness of m anner also
returned. H er cheeks regained their
color w ith the unwonted exercise; her
pulse beat quickly a g ain ; the soft June
breeze fanned her brow, and her dark

H er
■pirlts rose with every step they took.
8he even laughed when u little rabbit,
•trfrtled by their approach, »at upright
to look a t them for a moment, and then
dashed off into the underbrush. "I had
to laugh." she said, apologetically, "for if
aver a rabbit showed surprise, th at d id ;
why. his expression was alm ost hum an."
“ It is possible he may be, according to
B a n s W erlow,” rem arked the doctor.
“ And who is H ans W erlow?”
“ H e is a Germ an friend of mine who
has ju st revived a peculiar theory in re­
gard to the soul. H is idea is th a t the
•p irits of men and women who have m is­
behaved themselves on earth, will a t
death enter the bodies of anim als, there
to undergo a certain penance for the sins
th* y have committed on earth. It is quite
the talk of Paris, where it has become
th e fashion to point out an old cab horse

Working out his desiiny.' ”
f H ere H arriet was compelled to laugh

'' "H ow I should like to meet your friend
B a n . W erlow ! You m ust contrive to
invite him to visit us some day."
^ " P e r h a p s I shall, when all Is bright
again," replied Mason, "and it shall be,
(f I can make it so, or rather. If M onsieur
C assagne can, for the m atter is in his
hands now. All I can do is to wait and

.* "Y*es, 1 have.
In tim es of great
trouble we are apt to lean on someone.
One is glad to have somebody in such
• crisis who can be trusted. It is the
apeciftl mission of the strong to support
the weak."
» "A s we lean on you.” said Emily,
quietly, "for comfort in our hour of
■ led."
H er arm was within his own. and her
la ir, white hand was tem ptingly near.

T hen he «looped and kissed her on the
lips. She flushed scarlet.
"D r. Mason— P a u l !” she exclaimed.
He sprang across with her iuto the
field. H arriet was out of sight. She had
disappeared among the trees.

her hand before she could withhold it.
“ You tem pted me beyond my strength.

“ Why, nonsense! As if young ladies

She was blushing furiously. It became

More than a week had elapsed since
the departure of M. Oasaagne, during
which tim e his assistant in Paris. Charles
D’Auburon, had received no word of him.
One morning, however, he got a laconic
message over the w ire : “ Rue de P rov­
ence, 2 p. m. Tuesday,” by which he
rightly surm ised th at his chief would
meet him at his lodgings at the hour
Almost on the »troke of the
clock, D’A ubaron heard the
climbing the stairs leading to his a p a rt­
“ He is pretty tired,” cogitated the
young Frenchm an. “ He comes slowly.”
He was right. Alfred Cassagne had no
sooner entered the room th an he flung
himself heavily into a chair. His face
wore an expression of anxiety. His dress
was disordered.
He seemed dreadfully
fatigued and dispirited.
D ’Auburon
hastened to relieve him of his hat and
light overcoat, and to take the hot wig
from his head.
“You look worn out, old fellow,” he
“ Pull off your boots and
coat, and m ake yourself com fortable.”
Thus Invited, Alfred Cassagne divested
himself of these articles of apparel, re­
m arking as he pulled off his boots:
“ I haven’t had those off for the last
forty-eight hours— and they were too
tight for me anyhow.’»
“Anything gone wrong?”
“To be brief, all our work of the past
two weeks has to be done over again.”
“ W hat?” exclaimel D'Auburon. “ Do
you moan to say we are on the wrong
“ I will tell you right now,” replied
M. Cassagne. “ It is a peculiar story. I
soon settled the question as to where
Graham was.”
“ You have found him, then? and it is
not he who comm itted the crim e? Ah,
that is bad. O ur theory a t once falls to
the ground.”
“ Not so fast.
Don’t anticipate me.
However, I may tell you that H enry G ra­
ham had no more to do with the m urder
of Madame Roupell than you or 1 had.”
“ It is very extraorlinary.”
“Not extraordinary at all. B ut let me
begin a t the beginning. I left P a ris hav­
ing in my possession certain facts upon
which I knew I could thoroughly rely.
One of them was th a t Graham had gone
to Belliers, taking hi* little son with
him ; another th a t he had been in corre­
spondence with a woman there whose first
name was Helene, and whom I firmly be­
lieved to be the m other of the child.”
“ Yes, I recollect all th a t; go on, p ra y ;
what next ?”
“ Arrived at Belliers. I instituted every
possible inquiry as to whether s.u h per­
sons as G raham and hi* sou were known
or had ever been known there. This
search occupied the greater portion of my
time. I was al- it to despair when I
stum bled across an old priest who told me
th a t he had known the man I was iu
search of.
“ ‘Are you a friend or hi*?’ asked the
priest. ‘I ain.’ I replied. ‘Then you
will be «hocked when you hear what hap­
pened to him. Come with me, and I will
tell you his story.’ I followed the pries,,
expecting to hear that he was the inm ate
of some charitable institution, or having
lost his reason was confined in some pri­
vate asylum.
He led the way to his
church, and there in the little burying
ground he pointed me out a grave. At i u
head was a stone on which I read :
Aged 62 years.' "
“ W h a t!” exclaimed D’Auburon. aston­
ished beyond m easure. “ W as It our H en­
ry G raham ? It o rn 't be possible!”
“T here is not the slightest doubt about
it. W hen I saw th at tomberone, you can
imagine how I felt a fte r all the time
and trouble I had given this ease. It
was as if the bottom had dropped out of
everything. T he priest saw, no doubt,
th at I waa strangely affected. He a ttrib ­
uted my agitation to grief.
“ *Tell me som ething about my poor
old friend,’ I said. ‘I have heard that
he was in very bad dreum atancea. Did
he die poor?*
