"Well, you upc. thiit Is tlio reason why
I am nnsry with myself for not loving
you as I ought. 1 want you to like
the thinks I like, ami to lovo tho books
ml tho music and the pictures ami tho
the world I love; ami I forget that you
are a man, you know, ami that I am only
a girl; ami I forgot how nobly you be
haved, Maurice, and how unselfishly you
risked your llfo for mlno. Why, what
la the matter, dear?"
He had nut her away from him sud
denly, nnd gone to tho window, yailng
ncross the sloping garden at the bay
below, sleeping In the soft evening llirht.
Tho- schooner which had brought tho
'witnesses from l'ort Arthur lay off the
hare, nnd the yellow llsg at her matt
fluttereil gently In the cool evening
hrcesc. The night of thl (lag appeared
to anger him, for, a his eyes fell on
It he uttered an Impatient exclamation,
nnd turned round bra in. Some sudden,
desperate whm caused him to exclaim,
"Suinoe I had net done all you think,
woull you not love me still?"
Her eyes raised to his face with anx
ious tenderness for the piln ohe had be
lieved herself to have Inflicted, fell nt
"What a question! I don't know. I
suppose 1 should: yet but what Is the
ue. Maurice, of supposing? I know
you hive done It. ami thit it enough.
How can I nay what I might have dune
If something else had happened) Why,

If toere had leii for a moment any
sentiment of remorse in hit selfish heart,
the hesitation of her answer went far
te dispel It. With the hyimcrisy of self
Uttne which deceive even Itself, he

n sensible glow of virtue.

Hex toW Mr. Meekin, who, the next
day, dkl him the honor te visit him,
that, "under Providence, he owed kit
escape from death to the kind manner
In which Captain Krcre had spoken of
"I hope your escape will !k n warning
to yoB, my man," at Id Mr. Meekln, "and
that you will endeavor to make tho rest
of your life an atonement for your early
"Indeed I will, sir." said John Her,
who had taken Mr. Meekln' measure
very accurately, "and It Is very kind
of you to condescend to speak so to a
wretch like me. Ah! sir, I wish I had
attended to the gospel's teachings when
I was younger. I might have been saved
from all this."
"You might. Indeed, -oor man; but the
Divine Mercy Is infinite quite infinite,
nnd will be extended to all of us to
you as well as to me." (This with the
air of saying, "What do you think of
that?") "Heniember the penitent thief,
Hex the penitent thief."
"Indeed I do", sir."
"I will speak to the authorities .about
n change in your dietary scale," return
ed Meekin, patronizingly. "In the
meantime, just collect together In your
tnlnd those particulars of your adven
tures of which you spoke. Such a re
markable history ought not to be lost."
"Thank you kindly, sir. I will, sir.
Ah I I little thought, when I occupied
the position of a gentleman, Mr. Meek
ln. that I should be reduced to this.
Hut It is only just, sir. Good morning,
and heaven bless you, sir!" said Hex,
with his tongue In his cheek for the
benefit of bis yard mates; and so Mr.
Meekin tripped gracefully away, con
vinced that he was laboring mast suc
cessfully in the vineyard, and that the
convict Hex was really a superior per
"I will send bis narrntlve .to the
bishop," said he to himself. "It wilt
amuse him. There must be many strange
histories here, if one could but find twera
As the thought passed through his
brain his eyo fell upon the "notorious
Dawes," .who, white waiting for the
schooner to take him back to Tort Ar
thur, had been permitted to amuse him
self by breaking atones.
A fanciful visitor, seeing the Irregular
ly rising hammers along thu tine; might
have likened the shed to the Interior of
some vast piano, whose notes an unseen
band was erratically fingering. Hufus
Dawes was seated last of tho line. This
was the place nearest the watching con
stable, and was allotted on that account
to the most Ill-favored.
"Well, Dawes." says .Mr. Meekin,
measuring with his eye the distance be
tween the prisoner and himself, as one
might measure tho chain of some fero
cious dog. "How are you this morning.
Dawes, scowling In a parenthesis be
tween tho cracking of two stones, was
understood to say that he was very
"I am afraid, Dawes," says Jfr.
Meekin, reproachfully, "that you have
dono yourself no good by your outburst
lu court ou Monday, I understand that
public, opinion is quite Incensed against
Dawes, slowly arranging Que largo
fragment of bluestono In a comfortable
basin of smaller fragments, made no
"I am afraid you lack patience,
Dawes. You do not repent of your of
fenses agalust the law, I fear."
The only answer vouchsafed by the
Ironed wan was aarage blow, which
plit the stone Into sudden fragments,
and made tho clergyman skip a step
"You are a hardeued ruffian, sir! Do
you not hear me speak to you? I camn
to console you, man. I wanted to give
you some good advice!"
"I beg your pardon, sir. Prny go
"I was going to suy, my good fellow,
that you have dime yourself a great deal
of Injury by your ill-advised accusation
of Captain 1'rere, and tho use you mado
of MI11 Vlckers' name."
A frown, as of pain, contracted tho
prisoner's brows, nnd he seemed with
dlttlculty to put a rostra In t upon his
speech. "Is there to bo no Inquiry, Mr.
Meekin?" he asked, at length. "What
I stated was the truth. Are thev not
going to ask her for her story? They
told me that sho was to be asked. Sure
ly they will ask her."
"I am not. perhaps, at liberty," said
Meekin, placidly, unconscious of the ag
ony of despair and rage that made tho
voice of the strong tnBn before him
quiver, "to state tho Intentions of tho
authorities, but I can tell you that Miss
Vlckers will not be asked nnything about
you. You nre to go back to l'ort Ar
thur on the aith, and to remain there."
A groan burls from Itufus Dawes: a
groan so full of torture that even the
comfortable Meekin was thrilled by It.
"Come." says Meekin. "you can't com
plain. You have broken tho law, nnd
you mut suffer. Clvlllied sitclctr svs
you sha'n't do certain things, and If
you do them you must suffer the penalty
clvllited society Imposes. You are not
wanting in Intelligence. Dawes, more's
tho pity and you can't deny the Justice
Hufus Dawes, as If disdaining to an
swer In words, cast his eyes round tho
yanl with a glance that seemed to ask,
grimly, If civilized society was progress
ing qulto In accordance with Justice,
when Its civilization created such place
as that atoac-wallod. carbine-guarded
prison shed, ami filled It with such crea
tures as those forty human beasts, doom
ed to spend the best years of their man
hood cracking pebbles In It.
Meditating that night In tho solitude
of his cell, he almost wept to think of
the cruel deception that had doubtless
been practiced on her. "They have told
her that I was dead. In order that she
might learn to forget me; but she could
not do that. I have thought of her so
often during these weary years that she
must sometimes hnvc thought of me.
Five years! She must be a woman now.
My little child a woman! Yet. she Is
sure to be child-like, sweet ami gentle.
How she will grieve when she hears of
my sufferings; Oh! my darling, my darl
ing, you are not dead!" And then, look
ing hastily about him In the darkness,
as though fearful even there of being
seen, ho pulled from out his breast n lit
tle packet, and felt It lovingly with his
coarse, toll-worn fingers, reverently rais
ing It to his lips, and dreaming over It,
with a smile on hU face, as though It
were a sacred talisman that should open
to him the doors of freedom.
The usual clanking ami hammering
were prevalent Hpon the stone Jetty at
l'ort Arthur when the schooner bearing
the returned convict, Hufus Dawea, ran
alongside. He sat with his head bowed
down ami his hands clasped about his
knees, disdaining to look until they
"Hallo. Dawes!" ssya Warder Troko,
halting his train of Ironed yellow-Jackots.
"So you've come back again! Olad to
see yer, Dawes! It seems an age since
we had the pleasure of your romtany.
Dawes!" At this pleasantry the 'train
laughed, so that their irons clanked more
titan ever. They found It often Incon
venient not to laugh at Mr. Troke'a
mor. "Step down here, Da we, and let
me Introduce yer to your hold friends.
They'll bo glad to see yer, won't yer,
boys? Why, bless me, Dawes, we thort
we'd lost yerl Wo thort yer'd given 111
the slip altogether, Dawes. They didn't
take care of yer In Hobart Town, I ex
pect, eh, boys? We'll look after yer
here, Dawes, though. You won't bolt
"Take onre, Mr. Troke," said a warn

Ily virtue of an order transmitted
from Hnbart Town, they had begun to
attach the dnngerouft prisoner to the
last man of the King, riveting the leg
Irons of the pair by means of an extra
link, which could be removed when nec
essary; but Dawes had given no sign of
consciousness. At tho sound of the
friendly tones, however, he looked up,
and saw a tall, gaunt man, dressed In a
shabby pepper ,and salt ralmont, nnd
wearing a black: handkerchief knotted
round bis throat. He was a stranger to
"I beg your pardon, Mr. North." said
Troke, sinking at once tho bully In the'
sneak. "I didn't see yer reverence."
"A parsonl" thought Dawes, with dis
appointment, and dropped Us eyea.
"I kuow that," returned Mr. North,
coolly. "If you had, you would have
been all butter and honey. Don't you
troublo youself to tell a lie; It's quite
unnecessary. What's your name, my
Itufus Dawes had Intended to scowl,
but the tone, sharply authoritative, rous
ed his automatic convict second nature)
and he answered, almost despite himself,
"Oh," said Mr. North, eying him with
a curious air of expectation that had
something pitying la It "This is the
man, Is It? I thought he wo to go to
the coal mine," ',,
"So he Is," r.nld Troke, "but we hnlu't
n-golng to send there for a fortnlt, and
lu the meantime I'm to work him on the
"Oh," snld Mr. North again. "Lend
. mo your knife, Troke."
And then, before them all, this curious
pnrsuu jook a piece of tobacco out of
1 his rngged pocket, and cut off n "chaw"

au Interest lu something. Ho stared
at the parson In unaffected astonish
ment. Mr. North perhaps mistook tho
moaning of his fixed stare, for ho held
out the remnant of tobacco to him.
Tho chain-line vibrated nt this, and
bent forward to enjoy tho vicarious de
light of seeing nnether mail chew to
bacco. Tmkn grinned with n silent mirth
that betokeued retribution for the favor

holding out tho dainty morsel upon
which so many eyes were fixed. Hufus
Dawes took tho tobacco, looked nt It
hungrily for nn Instant, and then to the
nstoitltthmcut of everybody flung It
From convict mouths went out a re
spectful roar of amasement, and Mr.
Truke'a eyes snnpped with pride of out
raged Janltorshlp. "Yon ungrateful
dog!" he cried, raising his stick.
Mr. North put up a hand. "That will
do, Troke," ho said; 'I know your re
spect for tho cloth. Move tlfe men on
"(let on!" and Dawes felt his newly
riveted chain tug. It was somo time
since he had Itcoti lu a chain gang, and
the sudden Jerk narly over balanced
him. Do caught nt his neighbor, and
looking up, met a pnlr of black eyes
which gleamed recognition. His neigh
bor was John Hex. Mr. North, watch
ing them, was struck by the resemblance
the two men bore to each other. Their
height, eyes, hair and complexion were
similar. Despite tho dlffrrsnco In name,
they might be related. "They might 1
brother," thought he. "Poor fellows!
1 never knew a prisoner refuse tobacco
before." And he hulked on the ground
for tho despised portion. Hut In vain.
John Hex, oppressed by no foolish senti
ment, hnd picked It up and put It In hit
So Hufus Dawes was relegated to his
old life again, and came back to his
prison with tho hatred of hit kind, that
his prison had bred In him, Increased a
hundred-fold. It seemed to hlm that
the sudden awakening had dazed hlm.
that the flood of light so suddenly let In
upon hit slumbering soul had blinded his
eyes, used so long to the sttveetly cheat
ing twilight. He wns at first unable to
apprehend the details of his misery. Ho
knew only that his dream-child was atlve
and shuddered at him; that the only
thing he loved and trusted had betrayed
him; that all hope of Justice and mercy
had gone from him forever; that tho
beauty had gone from earth, the bright
ness from heaven; and that ho was doom
ed still to live. He went about his work,
unhcedful of tho Jests of Troke. utigatled
by his Irons, unmindful of the groans
and laughter about him. Ills magnificent
muscles saved him from tho lash, for
the amiable Troke tried to break hlm
down In vain. He did not complain, tin
did not laugh, he did not weep. Ills
"mate" Hex tried to converse with him,
but did not succeed. In the midst of one
of Ilex's excellent tales Hufus Dawes
would sigh wearily. "There's something
on that fellow's mind," thought Hex,
prone to watch the signs by which tho
soul la read. "He has some secret which
weighs upon him."
Then Hex came to a conclusion. His
mate was plotting an escape. He hlm"-
self cherished a notion of that kind, as
did (Jabbett and Vetch, but by common
distrust no one ever gave utteranco to
thoughts of this nature. It would lie too
dangerous. "He would bo a good com
rade for a ruth," thought Hex, ami re
solved more firmly than ever to ally
himself to this dangerous and silent com
One question Dawes had asked which
Hex had been able to answer, "Who is
"A chaplain. Ho I only here for a
week or so. There Is a new one com
ing. North goes to Sidney. Ho Is not
In favor with the bishop."
"Sllenee there!" cries the overseer.
"Do you want me to report yer?"
Amidst such diversions the days rolled
on, and Hufus Dawes almost longed for
the coal mines. To be sent from the
settlement to the coal mines, and from
the coal mines to tho settlement, was to
these unhappy men a "trip."
