all the paths through tlio forest.
It was at tills time that tlio strange
and wonderful scene wna occurring

Nora Warner fell Into the power of her
old-time foe, the man moat hateful to
her on earth tho mad-hoiiae doctor,
Aa he left the house the Captain caat
several glances orer his shoulder In or

would seem to Indicate that ho wm

Once among the tree ho nude his way
rapidly to a point where the shadows lay
densest, and there upon the around lay
the form of a man. silent and tnotlou
less. It was the mysterious foreigner,
The Captain had proreu too much for
even the keen detective, and his manner
of convincing the msn-huntcr of the mis
take he had made had been a forcible one.
In the struggle, and before Captain
Orant had struck s favorable spot with
his knife, the detective, whom ho held
under his knee, having knocked him Hat
with a sudden and terrible blow, caught
two of the lingers of his gloved hand be
tween his teeth, and almoit bit them off
at a point below the end joint.
Tho m order oil man lay Just where he
had fallen, and realising this, the Cap
tain vanished among tho trees, returning
In less than ten minutes, leading a horse
already equipped, which he had secreted
la the forest to have ready In rase of an
emergency, for he was one of those men
who always make sure of a way to re
treat before proceeding any depth Into
l'reientlydio wss mounted upon the
iKirse with the tXMly of the foreign de
tective lu front of him. and held In such
a manner that It looked like n comrade
asleep, with his head lunging upeh his
He kept In the densest portion of the
forest, for be did not care to bo seen by
any one, though the chances of such an
event at this hour would have been poor
enough even upon the public highway, for
the negroes were of too superstitious a
nature to think of wauderlug about the
country when ghosts and goblins were
supposed to be abroad.
Ilecause of his taking such a round
about way, Instead of going direct, ho
was a much longer tlmo In reaching the
old mill than linger had been when carry
ing Carol there, earlier In the night.
Strange how tils mind should have alio
turned to this quarter as a place of hid
ing. Surely there must have been some
thing more tbsn chance In It all.
When he found himself In the Immedi
ate neighborhood of the haunted mill,
Captain Grant brought bis horse to a sud
den halt, and placed his dead charge up
on the ground. Then, lecurlng his horse,
ho ralwnl the limp form of the murdered
detective In his arms, and, by the exer
tl.m of tremendous strength, bore It on.
Ho disappeared Inside the old mill.
There was a Urge chimney at one side
of the mill, and, for some purpose or
other, a hole had been made In this, the
bricks lying upon tbe floor closo by.
It required a herculean strength to
raise the dead detective to this opening,
but as be wss not a man of over a hun
dred and thirty pounds In weight, the
Captain succeeded In accomplishing It.
As he let go his hold he heard tho body
fall with a thump to the Uoor. Then all
lie made no change, not even touch
ing one of the bricks upon the Uoor, for
thotiglf It had at first beeu his Intention
to brick up the orifice In the chimney, up
on second thought he realised It was
wiser to leave things Jmt as they were,
for fear of exciting suspicious.
As he turned to leave he either ssw,
or fancied he did, the head of a man out
lined In one of the windows against the
The Idea gave him such a start that he
foil orer a piece of old machinery that
lay rusting upon the Uoor. This was the
racket that had readied tbe cars of
Carol and the widow.
As soon as be could recover he (led
hastily from the mill, turning once to
look back, nnd then plunging In among
tho trees like a bunted stag.
Had there been a witness to the horrid
burial? He shuddered nt the thought,
but found It Iniposslblo to decide whether
It had been real or a specter of his Im
agination. GHAl'TIJIl XIII.
It wns twilight.
The trees wore moaning a requiem for
departed day, ami tlio last tinge of red
was dying out of the western sky, when
Carol suddenly sat up straight, and hor
heart seemed to stand still as sho heard
henry footfalls outside,
An Interval of silence ensued, and then
there came a rap, loud and clear, upon
tho door of tho bauutcd mill. Carol held
Sho could not Imaglno anyono clso com
ing at that hour than Itoger, ami audi
had been tho Intensity of her recent
thoughts and feelings toward him that It
seemed to her sho could not, dared not,
meet him face to face, at least until she
had time to recover her self-possession.
8o she remained back while her mother
went to tho door.
To her astonishment it was a strange
voice that fell upon her cor a voice that
wan full of eagerness and trembling.
"1 have to beg your pardon for this late
visit, madam, hut I am looking for a
friend of mine, nnd hor continued ab
sence has worried mo moro than I can
tell you. Have you seen Nora Warner?"
Carol started, for she realised that this
person, whoever he might he, was about
to receive a shock. Uvldently he was
quite unaware of the terrible fate that
hud nvcrtnken thu poor girl, and that aim
was by that time, If stilt alive, contlned
within the wnlli of the mad house that
had before been her nrlaou.
ller mother retained her sjdfpowea
alon, though sho knew full well there
wns n blow In store for this gentleman,
whoever ho might he.
".Step In, sir, and be sealed. Do lint
refine, for I have that to tell you that
will strike a blow at your heart, per
haps, though I know not what relation
you bear to Nora Warner," she said.
"Do not keep me In aimpemie, madam.
Nora Warner was very dear lo me, In
hraren'a name tell me what has happen
ed to the poor girl." be pleaded,
"You knew something nf her former
history. I presume?" Inquired tho lady.
Hhe had a double object In view, tbe
Idea of finding out what he knew ami
nhether the story of Nora Warner, as
told to Carol, were trut.
"There Is nothing of her past that I do
not know, madam, and If she has come
to grief I sin well aware of the source.
I't a hair of her head bo Injured and
her villainous husband, linger Parrel,
must settle with me. Delny no longer,
I pray you, for every secoud Is torture
There was something frank In the
young man's vole and way of spenhliu,
that went straight to the llttlo lady's
heart, and sho knew thst ho was honest
and manly, hence she sympathised with
him In his sorrow.
"I see you are her friend, str, and as
such I shsll conllde the fscts to you. Nora
Warner has again fallen Into tho hands
of those demons from whom she into
before neaped. Tbe insd-house doctor
has been here."
"Is It pelblc?"
There wss a gritting of tho strong
teeth, and even In the caudle light she
could see that the man'a fare psled with
the comprehensive knowledge of what
Hhe then went on to tell all that had
occurred, and he heard the news with
the aspect of a man who suffered and
yet made no sound.
"Curses on his hesdt" he muttered,
fiercely, when she wss done, "he Is the
worst demon on earth, and the time will
come when retribution will fall upon him,
and It shsll be my hsnd that deals the
blow. It he hs dared to barm a hair
of her bead I sbsll torture the life out of
When he became calm he made Inquir
ies, for It seemed that Nora had only told
lilin the circumstances of her past with
out certain particular, and he was glsd
to be ahown the torn card which tbe doc
tor had left behind hi in. and which Carol
had thoughtfully picked up from the place
where aho had throwu It on tbe previous
Of course this young man wna tbe aatnn
whom we saw In tho company of Nora
Warner st the time when she fought
her memorsble duel with Csptsln Orant,
tbe "Jsrk" whom the duelist thought he
had seen before and yet could not place.
While they talked Carol bad Jollied
them and her p resell re was acknuwledged
by the young man with a ollte bow. He
was unable to aay what had been Nora's
mission In seeking tbe young girl again,
but all ho knew was thst the poor de
ceived wife had discovered something of
tho utmost Importnncn whleh mutt be
communicated to Carol without delay It
aho would aavp her from years of Intense
suffering. This wss what she had been
trying her best to tell when the brutal
keeper choked her further utterance.
The widow had not dured to tell Jack
the full particulars pf thai terrible scene,
for she saw that he was of an excitable
temperament, and also that ho loved
Nora Warner, and she feared the result.
It was enough for him to know that she
was again In the (Miwer ot thoso villains,
and as he seemed to poess Nora's en
tire confidence It might be readily sup
Miscd that alio had aome time In tho past
given him to understand what muiiuer of
man the doctor was.
While they were yet talking, something
very like a mullled shriek reached their
ears and caused them all to spring up,
"What was that?" asked each In won
dc. "The sny this ptaco la haunted became
of alngular nolsca heard here at times,
but I found they originated In a very
commonplace manner, for the loft above
this mill was occupied by a troop of
wild cats and during the night they were
wont to indulge In a melee that to su
perstitious ears sounded llko the shrieks
of deadly foes, ami their falls from raft
ers that ended each combat was to them
a repetition ot the old murder that took
placo here. I remedied all that by shut
ting up the holes lu the window by means
of which they gained Ingress, and ever
since that tlmo I have never been both
ered by any unearthly sound, Whatovor
It wna wo beard Just now, It camo from
the Interior of the mill, and will bear In
vestigation; so, If you would do ua a
favor, sir, tho tlmo Is at hand."
Jack was porfectly willing, and tho
three Immediately entered tho main por
tion of the mill by means of a door in
the back of the widow'a humble kitchen.
They had lighted a lamp lu place ot tho
dim candle, and were thus enabled to
look around them In all directions.
When they stood within the mill proper
tho young man lookod around him. Ho
saw but llttlo of Interest, Tho old saw
was there, but mated so that it was
almost In pieces, nnd there wcro gaping
holes In tho root throiign which both
rnln and sunahlue camo at Intcrvuls,
according to the time.
While they stood thus there came to
run through their
Again It sounded nu 1lair cars. This
tlmo Jack's face brightened, for he saw
I lit hole In the great I'lilinuey. nnd strid
ing up to It he cried lulu (lie urlllcui
"llelhil where are you?"
The answer came Immediately, and yet
wns so mtlflled that they could hardly
"In the chimney. For hrnvrn's aake
get me out qulckt I bellern I am dying!"
There woa but one way to accomplish
this) J a eh realised Hie fact at once, He
handed tho lamp tu the little widow and
replaced his revolver, feeling that he
would have no occasion to use It, at least
for the present,
Then ho commenced enlarging Hie ori
fice by tearing down the bricks, always
working downward. Komellmes he had
illlllcult work, but In (he end he succeed
ed In his task, and the result was that
at the end of ten or fifteen minutes he
bad cleared the way lo within a foot or
so of tho ground.
Then stepping In, he bent down nnd
raised tbe form of the foreign detective
In his stout arms. When he had laid
him nu the lloor of the mill, he bent over
tu examine, the man'a ghastly wounds.
"Who did this foul deed?" ho asked In
The man whispered In reply, for ho was
weak and almost dying, Jack uttered a
smothered curse and, gaining his feet,
fled In a voice that fruse Carol with
"Home more of that demon's work.
May the curao of heaven blight him and
ht forever. He la one of Hatan'a (lends
and when we 'meet I shsll semi him to
tbe lusitcr he serves, Wltueis the osthl"
Tbe words at the young msn csme very
near killing Carol Illchinoud, for of
course she thought all along bo had ref
erence to the linger Dsrrel she knew
and loved, and lo think of lilin as a mur
derer In addition In his other sins would
have been enough to have entirely crush
At the time she did tint remember that
her mother and hernelf bad seeu Captain
(Irant, or some one clouly resembling
him, leave the mill on the prevloiu ulght
some time between the hour when Nora
Warner was carried off by her Jailers and
Alt she could think of was this one
fact, that besides being siillty of all thote
other misdeeds, her Itoger was not enly
a murderer at heart, but was In a fair
way to become one In fact, for the un
fortunate man UM)n the mill Moor looked
aa though be were dying. Her heart
waa now Steele) ngaliut Itoger, anil at
their next meeting she must let him know
that be could not even call ber friend.
While Carol wa thus thinking upon
the matter, and deciding as to her future
plan, Jack waa examining the wounds
of the detective.
"My msn." said he finally, "you shall
live syC. live for vengeance on Hie llend
whose baud struck thote cowardly
The face of the detective lighted up
and a fierce gleam came Into his ryes,
for he would ask nothing better ou earth
flently raiting him, Jack carried the
poor man Into the habitable part of the
building and laid him upon the blankets
prepareu lor mm uy ins wiuow, i ncn ue i
proceeded to dress tho wound", nnd Hie
skill he exercised lu this proved him to be
a young physician of mure than ordinary
He had a case of remedies with him
and before leaving the oh) mill on his
seareh for lost Nora he loft the uiriHillH's
to be used In the haiiiLi ot Carol's moth
er. The detective potsrsted a magnificent
constitution and his wounds were not
fatal, so that he was lu a fair way for
speedy recovery, being In excellent hands.
Hesldes Hist, tbe burning desire for re
venge upon the msn who had dealt him
such a cowardly blow waa enough of un
Incentive to keep him alive, fur It brought
Ida will Into play.
The widow waa bis attendant, for Carol
could not stsy In (he home, such wss the
tumult ot her thoughts In regard to Itog
er. Hut for the fact that Jack, for pru
dential rensons, had talked of all other
subjects lefore his departure save the
one they were Interested In, they might
have learned that whleh would have fall
en like a bomb between them.
The detectlvo was more communicative,
for his heart warmed tn tho widow as the
one to whom be owed his life. Ho whs
a Husslsn by adoption, but In reality wss
a born (Englishman, which accounted for
his stinking the language so properly.
While he entertained the little lady
with long stories of the American adven
turer' a doluga In Ittissla, and how, fall
ing upder the ban, It was discovered that
he was a plotter against the life nf the
Csar, tho fact never leaked nut that each
of them had In mind a far different per
sonage. Thus the terrible mistake was allowed
to become deeper, and tho characters In
our story drifted nloug ns the steru de
cree of tale willed.
