"What a black night! I ought to have

Mood and talked in the cone of the light
from the dark lantern.
"You are a very successful dissem
bler, Mr. Mason," she said, unconscious
ly assuming hU own light and frivolous
manner. "You have succeeded admira
bly in Imposing upon the simple, frank
nnd unsuspecting viltagers and country
people in and about Sandtown. Hut I
submit w hether this were an object whol
ly commensurate with your distinguished
Ability. The feat of deceiving Ignorant
nnd uneducated people is one that U eas

tricksters. A man of genius, I think,
should have exerted his powers upon a
community like that of a great city:
wide awake and vigilant aa to Its Inter
ests." lie laughed so very heartily at this j
waspish attack that she felt very much
like joining him In It, although the laugh
would then ear the construction of be
ing ngainst herself.
"Take care of that brier. Miss May.
I had almost forgotten the locality of
that bunch. It dragged my bat off one
dark night when I waa returning from
jour house to my tent. And although I
hunted and searched for It a full half
honr that night, I had to abandon It at
last ami go twine batless. Next morn
ing 1 saw It from quite a distance grace
fully dangling from a branch ef a little
ash sapling where the brier bad thrown
It in the rebound. I thought I would
cut them out of the way; but I didn't.
The total Irrelevancy of this some
what tiresome anecdote only confirmed
I.luy Wkkly la ber determination to
make this man feel somewhat of the
weight and the sharpness of the edge
of the Sandtown aversion for him.
She could net sec what he must have
seen at once that this acerbity, so for
eign to her speech and manner, was the
iiatHral ontcry of her wounded self-love
aud self-pride.
"Hut, after all. it is perhaps as a simu
lator, or a personator, that you have
made your most brilliant record in Rand
town, Mr. Mason. The pious assistant
to an eminent geologist who in answer to
the hungry cry ef a religion starved
l-cople, wen bis way straight to their
simple hearts, Sunday after Sunday, by
discourse such as they had never beard
iter dreamt ofl What possible ulterior
design could such a course subserve, Mr.
Mason? What possible design could jus
tify that particular phase of Imposition?
Was It for the sole purpose of affording
ou some amusemeut, when all the few
sources of amusement in our simple and
serious community bad bees exhausted?"
Oh, IJixy, how very ingenuous! How
xery incautious In one who wanted to
conceal a self-hurt! Anybody oould have
seen the real and ouly source and origin
of such a phiiliplc!

"Toward your employer? Toward Mr.
Huntley?" she said, with great bitter
ness, and emphasising her manner with
a conclusive dutch upon Mr. Mason's

and the mnn. "It h, perhaps, the very

strongly aud rcstrnlulttgly ngainst her

"Oo on," he nald lu n tone thnt pre-
supposed an nccompatoing smile of ex
pectation. "Tell mo fully ami without
reservation nil tt you thought when
you began to set" the dawn or the sus
picion to which you nllnde and which I
had Imagined nuwt have reached its
seulth long ago."
There wa something pervading all his
word and action, nml hi a bole man
ner, so very, very different from what the
had known of Mr. Mnon! Mwt she he
gin by telling him this? Ye, plainly.
If she entered Into such a complete un
burdening of her ml ml. she mixt tell him
this, and tell It tlr-t.
Hut she must know- to what It would
lead! If he should ask her In which as
pvet she thought him bet. she wtmhl be
compelled to give the genuine and uni
versal woman's answer.
Kven to a woman of education ami
some degree of refinement, with superior
talents and acquirement, thl half-military,
bold, confident, smiling ami jaunty
cavalier was infinitely letter. more at
tractive, than the plain, unrtssuming,
philosophic assistant to the geologist, no
matter how learned ami thoughtful.
She had begun to tell him something
ot thl choosing ber word as carefully
a she conkl, so a to preserve for her
own reflection ami sdf-comtnemtatUm
that attitude of womanly dignity and
self-poise which she actually Imagined
she had maintained throughout this short
but momentous Interview.
She had said perhaps enough to com
mit her to the whole opinion of him aa It
has here been outlined, from her last
brief cogitation, differing as radically as
it dees from her more elaborately pre
pared and expressed opiates as shown In
the begisutlsg of tke wall, only a few
moments ago; and which opinion surely
must have been the public opinion at all
Sandtown, rather than her own.
Tke first opinteo which she imagined
was her tree estimate of Mr Mason was
in fact bat hrr version of the verdict of
Saudtowa upon him, given upon ex parte
tesiimosvy, it i true.
The Vast estimate which she had for
mulated, and had even expressed to all
Intents and purposes, although she was
preparing to formulate it in twenty dif
ferent ways, perhaps, was in reality her
own opinion, ami one that she may have
really entertained from the first.
So strange are the apparently contra
dietary ami wholly irreconcilable work
ings of the human mind, and especially
that particular quality of the human
mind evolved from a woman's brain.
She had scarcely began to recite some
of these Impressions when in the now
almost quiet wood there hwped up the
distant but perfectly dkMtnct report of a
rin, keen ami penetrating iar its whip
like echo about the remnant assies of
the forest. Mr. Mason Mopped instant
ly, and turning hU head, listened intent
ly "I hope these men have not been fool
ish enough to gathor up a force of the
ruttUm of Hlg Rattlesnake Creek t

bead a little, in the listening altitude.

again, whieh will be soon qnlte soon. If
I have any control of the matter."
He pressed her hand warmly, a be
disengaged it from his arm. and then
started to walk rapidly bark.
But, as If under an Hneimtrottable im
pulse, be turned and ran back, and

Then, with some Inaudible murmur of
apology and entreaty, he turned once
more, ami wa gone.
Never in the known history of Sand
town had there been a time of excite
ment equal to this that now emptied all
the cabins and "double-legs" along tbe
Wabash, from Heelfoot Pond to Hlg Rat
tlesnake Creek and from tbe Wabash to
the uttermost parts of the Overcoat road.
Everybody who told tbe story In after
times, and all thos who (nek part In
