Aa whl to and motionless as a statue,
Madelelno atood with bowed head bflfore
the storm of passionate reproach.
"Prosper, my brother, my friend, If
you only knew "
"I know but one tiling, Madeleine, and
that Is that you no longer love me, and
that I Mvo yon more madly than ever.
Oh, Madeleine, haafen only kuowa bow

He wna silent. He hoped for an an
swer. None enme. Hut auddenly tha al
ienee wa broken by a stilled eob. It
was Madeleine's maid, who, seated In a
corner, wna weeping bitterly. He turned
In surprise, and looked nt tho weeping
woman; thla neatly dressed waiting maid
waa Nina Oypsy.
Proaper waa o startled thnt he became
perfectly dumb. He atood them with
ashy lips, nnd a chilly sensation creeping
through his reins. Meanwhile Madeleine
had auccceded In recovering her usual
calmness. Blowly and almost unconsci
ously aha had put 011 her bonnet and
ebnwl, lying on tha aora, men sn ap
proached Prosper and aald:
"I wish to tell you that I ham for
gotten nothing. Hut, oh! let not thla
knowledge give you any hope, the future

agony of monrnlng your death. For my

r-i.itM.t (mm ib tYwim. followed br Nina
Oypsy. Prosper waa alone. H seemed
to lie awaking from a troumeo orenm.
II tried to think over what had Just
happened, nnd aaked himself If he were
losing hla mind, or whether he hnd really
spoken to Madeleine, and aeon Oypsy.
He waa obllgod to attribute all thla to
the mysterious power of the strange man
whom he had seen for the first time that
very morning, and who had entered the
"1 thank yon for your past services,
monsieur," said Prosper to blm. "and de
cline them for th future, as I hav no
need of them. If I attempted to defend
my honor and my life It waa becauae I
hoped thnt Madeleine would b reatored
to be. I have been convinced to-day thnt
all la at nn end between ua; mtlm from
the etruggle, and cam not what becoraea
of me now."
Prosper waa so decided that M. " er
duret seemed alarmed.
"Yon must be mad," he flnnlly aald.
"No, unfortunately I am not. Made
leine haa ceased to love me. and of what
Importance I anything else?"
"Do you suspect nothing? you did not
see what waa hidden beneath her words?
Prrhapa It waa not a delicate thing to
do, but aa long aa the object la good w
need not look too closely at the meane.
I listened, and l am giau mat 1 urn,
because now I can aay to you. Take
courage, Prosper; Madeleine lovea you:
ahe hat never ceased to lovo you."..
Like a man who, feeling himself at
the point of death, ptlta fnltli In the doc
tora promises, Prosper aaw ray of
hope In M. Verdurefa positive assertions.
"Oh," he murmured, suddenly calmed,
"If I could only believe"
"Hellove me. I am not mistaken. Ah,
you hnvo not guessed, aa I did, the auf
ferlnga of this generous girl, struggling
between her lovo aud what she believes

She sacrificed herself, for whom? We

Upon Inquiry It wns learned that thi

that tho poundman had made aereral
unsuccessful attempts to catch tha

whom tho animal had made friends
could handle hi in at will. Finally they

STORY FROM AM ABSTRACT.
Farm Now In Kansa City Bold tr Ben
ntur Cockrcll in Ilofaood.
If Senator Francis Marlon Cockrcll
could bare foreseen when ho wns a
boy that the great city of the Missouri
alley would bo built here at the Junc
tion of tho Knw nnd Mlaaourl rivers
lie might now be a multimillionaire. In
examining un abatract to a lot on
Trncy, between Thlrty-sUth and Thlr-ty-cevcutb
afreets, It. J, Holmden, tb
attorney, made the discovery that
Cockrcll, In 1817, when he was a boy
of l.'l, owned eighty acres there, anil
he sold It nil for 1900. The lot wlilcli
Mr. IlolrniJrn was looking up sold re
cently for .'.000,
The land. (MO acres of It, wos deeded
by the United Ktntes government In
IS -7 to the Htute of Mlaaourl for semi
nary purposes. The tract was all of
Mt-tlon 21, township 40, range 33. In
18.T) Joneph Cockrell. father of tho
Senator, bought eighty ncrea of It from
the Statu for J'-'.W an ncre. Mr. Cock
rell died, and In 1847. when Francis
Mnrlon Cockrell wna 13 yenrs old. lie
petitioned the court, through his guar
dian, to sell the eighty acres.
Iu his petition be said that he al
ready owned a farm In Warrvnsburg
butllclciitly large for tils needs when
be should become of age, and, besides,
be aald, the big storm of 18U, the
year of the great flood, had blown
down all the trees on his elgbty-acr
truct In Jnckson county and therefore
It would bo useless for him to bold It
becauae, when he would como of ago,
the timber would be all dead. Hicks
1 and Smart of Independence were Cock-
, rell's lawyers. The court granted his
request and the land was bought by
1 Joseph IJrown for 900. Kansas City
