For The Term ofjSis Natural Life
CHAPTER XXlV.-Contlnucd.
Between Kaglchnwk nml Signal II 111
were, for the absconders, other danger.
Alone the Indented const of Tort Huncho
were constables' station, anil to avoid
them It would t necessary to mntce a
circuit Into tho scrub. Unwilling a he
was to low time, John Hex saw that to
attempt to run the gauntlet of these
four station, would be destruction, lie
ranged his men In single file: and, quit
ting the road near Norfolk Hay, made
ntratght for the Neck. After nearly two
hours of4ialnftiI progress, Jemmy Vetch
stopped and whispered them to approach.
They were on a sandy rise. To the let
was a black object a constable's hut
to the right wns a dim white line the
ocean; in front was a row of lamps
and between every two lamps leaped
r.nd ran a dusky, Indistinct body. Jem
my Vetch pointed with hU lean fore
finger. "The dogs!"
Distinctively they crouch down, lest
ereu at that distance the two sentries.
so plainly risible lu the red light of tho
guard house fire, should see them.
"Well," said Oabbett, "what's to be
dono now J"
As he spoke, a long, low howl broke
from one of the chalued hounds, nnd the
whole kennel burst Into hideous outcry.
John Hex, who perhaps was the. brav
est of the party, shuddered. "They have
smelled us," he said. "We must go
on. Make for the right-hand side of
tic Jetty. I think I see a boat there. It
Is our only chance now. Wo can never
break through the station. Are we
ready? Now! All together."
Oabbett was fast outstripping the oth
ers by some three feet of distance.
There were eleven dogs, two of which
were placed on stages set out in the
water, and they were so chalued that
their mu ul os nearly touched. The giant
leaped Into the line, and with a blow of
his ax split the skull of the beast on his
right. This action unluckily took him
within reach of the other dog, which
seized him by the thigh.
"Fire!" cried McNab, from the other
side of the lamps.
The giant uttered a cry of rage and
pain, and fell with the dog under hint.
It was, however, the dog that had pulled
Mm down, and the musket ball Intended
for him struck Travers in the Jaw. The
unhappy villain fell.
(tabbett clutched the mastiff's throat
with Iron hand, nnd forced him to loose
Ms hold: then bellowing with fury, seiz
ed his ax, and sprang forward, mangled
as he was, upon the nearest soldier.
Jemmy Vetch had been beforehand with
Mm. Uttering a low snarl of hate, he
fired, and shot the sentry through the
breast. The others rtthcd through the
now broken cordon and made headlong
for the boat.
"Fools'" cried Hex, behln.l them. "Ton
have wasted a shot! I.ook to your left!"
Ilnrgets hurried down the tram-road
by his men, had tarried at Signal Hill
only long enough to loose the surprised
guard from their bonds, and taking the
Woody Island boat, was pulling with a
fresh crew to the Neck. The re-enforcement
was not ten yards from the Jetty.
The Crow saw tho danger, and, flinging
himself Into the water, desperately seiz
ed McXab'a boat.
"In with you for your Uvea!" he cried.
Another volley from the guard spat
tered the water around the fugitives, but
In the darkness the lll-almed bullets fell
harmless. Uabbett swung himself over
the sheets and seized an oar.
"Cox, Ilodenham. Oreenblll! Now,
push her off! Jump, Tom. Jump!" an J
rs Burgess leapl to land, Cornelius was
dragged over the stern, and the whale
lioat floated Into deep water. McNab.
seeing this, ran down to the water side
to aid the commandant.
"Lift her over the 1m r. men!" he
shouted. "With a will so!" And. rais
ed In twelve strong arms, the pursuing
craft slid across the Isthmus.
Then, for the firm time, the six pris
oners, fairly In the net again, became
aware that John Hex was not among
At 8 o'clock the next morning the
Pretty Mary stood out to sea with ev
ery stitch of canvas set alow and aloft.
Tho skipper's fishing had come to an
end. He had caught a shipwrecked sea
man, who had been brought on board at
daylight and was then at breakfast In
the cabin. The crew winked at each
other when the haggard mariner, attired
In garments that seemed remarkably
well preserved, mounted the side. Hut
they, none of them, were lu a position to
controvert the skipper's statement.
"Where are we bound for?" asked
John Hex. "I'm entirely in your hands,
my worthy Illunt."
' "My orders are to cruise about tho
whaling grounds until I meet my con
sort," returned Illunt, "and put you
aboard her. She'll take you back to
Sydney. I'm victualed for a twelve
month's trip."
"Hight!" cried Rex, clapping bis pre
server on the back. "I'm bound to get
to Sydney somehow; but, as the Philis
tines are abroad, I may as well tarry lu
Jericho till my beard be grown. Don't
stare at my scriptural quotation," he
nddid, Inspirited by creature comforts,
aud secure amidst bis purchased friends.
"I assure you that I've bad the Tory
best religious Instruction. Indeed, It U
chiefly owing to my worthy spiritual
pastor and master that I am enabled
to smoke this very villainous tobacco of
yours at the present moment,"
Tho lost son of Sir Hlchard Devine
hail returned to England and made
claim to his name and fortune, lu other
words, John Hex had successfully car
ried out the scheme by which ho bad
usurped the rights of his old convict
John Hex often wondered at the
strange ease with which he had carried,
out so monstrous and seemingly difficult
an Imposture, After he was landed h
Sydney by tho vessel which Sarah Pur
foy had sent to save him, ho found him
self a slave to a bondage oarcelr less
galling than that from which he had
escaped the bondage of enforced com
panionship with an unloved woman. Tho
opportune death of one of her assigned
servants enabled Sarth Purfoy to In
stall the escaped convict In his room. In
the strange state of society which pre
vailed of necessity In Now South Wales
at that period, It was not unusual for
assigned servants to marry among the
free settlers, and when It was hoard
that Mrs. Purfoy, the widow of a whal
ing captain, had married John Carr, her
storekeeper, transported for embezzle
meut. and with two years of his sen
tence yet to run, no one expressed sur
prise. Indeed, when, the year after.
John Carr blossomed as an "expiree,"
master of n fine wife and a tine fortune,
there were many about him who would
have mad his existence In Australia
pleasant enough. Hut John Hox bad no
notion of remaining longer than he could
help, and ceaselessly sought menu of
escape from his second prison house. For
a long time hi search wns unsuccess
ful. Much a she loved the scoundrel,
barah Purfoy did not scruple to tell him
that she had Iwught him. ami regarded
urn as her property. He knew that If
he made any attempt to escape from nJ,
marrlago bonds, the woman who had
risked so much to save him would not
hesitate to deliver him over to the au
thorities. t "J no.w r" ,Wt care for m now.
John, she said, with grim complacen
cy; "but your life is In my hands, and
ir you desert mo I will bring you to the
In vain. In his secret eagerness to be
rid of her. he raged and chafed. He
was tied hand and foot. She held his
money, and her shrewd wit had moru
man iiouoicil It. She was all-powerful,
and he could but wait until her death
or some lucky accident should rid him
i uer. ami leave nlui free to follow out
tho scheme he had matured. "Once rid
of her," he thought. In hi solitary ride
over the station of which fan was thn
nominal owner, "the rest Is eay. I shall
return to England with a plausible story
of shipwreck, and shall doubtless be re
ceived with open arms by the dear
mother from whom I have been so long
parted. Hlchard Devine shall have bit
own again."
One day the chance came to him,
His wife was III. and the ungratefuj
scoundrel stole five hundred pounds,
and. taking two horses, reached Sydney,
and obtained passage lu a vessel bound
for Hio.
Having escaped from thralldom. John
Hex proceeded to play for the great
stake of his life with the utmost caution
This was the tale he hit upon: He had
been saved from the burning Ilydsspes
by a vessel bound for HIo. Ignorant of
the death of Sir Hlchard, ami prompted
by the pride which was known to be a
leading feature of his character, he had
determined not to return, until fortune
should have bestowed upon him wealth
at least equal to the Inheritance from
which he had been ousted. lit Spsulsh
America he had striven to accumulate
that wealth In vain. As traveler, specu
lator, sailor, he had tolled for fourteen
years, and had failed. Worn out end
penitent, he had returned home (o Hud a
corner of Kngllsh earth In which to lay
his wnary bones. The tale was plausible
enough, and In tho telling of it he was
armed at all points. There was little
tMT that the navigator of tho captured
Osprey. the man who had lived In Chill,
and "cut out" cattle on the Carnim
Plain, would prove lacking In knowl
edge of riding, seamanship, or Spanish
customs. Moreover, he had determined
upon a course of action which showed
his knowledge of human nature.
The will under which Hlchard Devine
Inherited had been made when the tes
tator was In the first hopeful glow of
paternity. Hy Its term I.ady Devine
was to receive a life Interest of three
thousand a year In her husband's prop
erty which was placed In the hands of
two trustees until her eldest sou died,
or attained the age of twenty-five years,
When either of these events should oc
cur, the property was to be realized,
Lady Devine receiving a sum of a hun
dred thousand pounds, the remainder go
ing absolutely to the son, If living. The
trustees appointed were Lady Devlne's
father, Col. .Wotton Wade, and Mr, Si
las Kuald, Sir Hlchard' solicitor. Col.
Wade, before bis death, had appointed
bis own son, Mr. Francis Wade, to act
In his stead. When Mr. Quald died
Francis Wade continued alone In hU
trust. Sir Richard's sister and her hus
band, Anthony Frere, of Ilrlstol, were
long ago dead, and their representative,
Maurice Frere, content at last In the
lot that fortune bad sent him, had given
up all thought of meddling with his un
cle's boslnsss. John Her, therefore, In
the person of the returned Hlchard, had
but two psraons to satisfy Mr. Fran
cis Wad and Lady Devine.
This a found to be the easiest task
possible, ' Francis Wade was an Invalid
virtuoso, who detested business, nnd
whoso ambition was to bo known n. it
man of tnsto. The possessor of it small
Independent Income, ho hud resided ut
North Knd over slnco his father's death.
When, nt his Mister's urgent wish, ho
assumed tho solo responsibility of tho
ostnte, no put all tiio floating capital
Into three per cents, nml was content to
seo tho Interest accumulate. Lady Do
vino had never recovered tho shock of
th circumstances attending Sir Hlchard'
death, and clinging to the belief In her
sous existence, regarded herself a the
mere guardian of his Interests, to bo
displaced at any moment by his sudden
return. Tho retired pair lived thus to
gether, and spent In charity nnd brle-n-brao
about n fourth of their mutual In
come. Hy both of them the return of
the wanderer was hailed with delight.
To Lady Devine It meant the realization
of a lifelong hope. To Francis Wade It
meant relief from tho responsibility of
looking after another person's money.
"I shall not think of Interfering with
the arrangements which you have made,
my dear uncle," said Mr. John Hex, on
tho first night of his reception. "It
would be most ungrateful of mo to do so.
My wants aro very few, and can easily
bo supplied. I will seo your lawyers
spine day, and settle It."
"See them at once. Hlchard: see I hem
nt once. I am no man of business, you
know, but I think you will find nil
Hlchard, however, put off tho visit
from day to day. He desired to have as
little to do with lawyer n possible.
Ho had resolved upon his course of ac
tion. Ho would get money from bis
mother for Immediate needs, and when
that mother died he would assort his
rights. "Mr rough life has unfitted me
for drawing room, dear mother," he
said. "Do not let there be n display
about my return, (live the a corner to
smoke my pipe nnd I am happy." tady
t'cvme, wun a loving, tender pity, for
which John Hex could not altogether
account, consented, and "Mr. Hlchard"
soon came to be regarded ns n martyr
10 circumstances, a man conscious of hi
own Imperfections, ami one whose Imper
fection. were, therefore, to lie lightly
dwelt upon. So the returned prodigal
had hi own suite of rooms, his own
servants, his own bank account, nnd was
Thu taken upon trust, Mr. Hlchard
Devine mixed In tho very best of bad so
clety, and had no lack of agreeable
friends to help him to spend hi money.
So admirably did he spend It, that Fran
cis Wade became at last alarmed at the
frequent drafts, and urged his nephew to
bring bis affairs to a final settlement.
Hlchard Devine In Paris, or Hnmbiirg,
or I.oudon, or elsewhere could never be
got to nttack business, ami Mr. Francis
Wnde grew more ami more anxious. The
jKJor gentleman positively became III
through the anxiety consequent upon his
nephew's dissipations. "I wish, my dear
Hlchard, that you would let me know
what to do," ho wrote. "I wish, my
dear uncle, that you would do what you
think best," was the nephew's reply.
Mr. Wade began to repent of his too
easy taking of matters In the beginning.
Not that he had a suspicion of Ilex, but
that he remembered that Dick was al
ways a loose fish. He grew pale anil
hollow eyed. His digestion was Impair
ed. He ceased to take the Interest In
china which tho importance of that arti
cle demanded. In n word, he grew de
spondent ns to hi fitness for his mission
in life. Lady Hllluor saw a change lu
her brother. She wrote a long letter to
Mr. Hlchard, who was at Paris, anil
begged him to come over at once. Mr.
Hlchard replied that some horse racing
matter of great Importance occupied his
attention, but that he would be at his
town house on the 14th, and would "go
Into matters." "I have lost a good deal
of money istely, my dear mother," said
Mr. Hlchard, "and the present will be a
good opportunity to make a final settle
ment." The fact was that John Hex,
now three year In undisturbed posses
sion, considered that the moment had
arrived for the carrying off at one swoop
of the whole of the fortune he had gam
bled for.
Tho town house of Mr. Hlchard De
vine was decorated In conformity with
the tastes of Its owner. The picture
were pictures of horse; the book were
records of race, or novels purporting
to. describe sporting life. Mr. Friuiol
Wade, waiting for the coming of his
nephew, sighed ns he thought of the cul
tured quiet of North Km) House.
Mr. Hleliard appeared In his dressing
gown. Three years of good living had
deprived his figure of It athletic beauty.
He was past forty years of age, and the
sudden cessation from severe bodily toll
had Increased Hex's natural prom-ties to
fat, ami Instead of being portly ho had
become gross, HI cheek were Inflamed
with the frequent application of hot and
rebellious liquors to his blood. HI hands
were swollen, and not so steady ns of
yore, ni whiskers were streaked with

black as ever, lurked In n thicket of
crow's feet. He had beeomo premature

Delighted to seo you. Have you break
fasted? of course you have. I was up
rather lato Inst night. Quite sure you
won't have anything? No then sit

"Thank you, Hlchard," said (he old
gentleman, a little stlllly, "but I want
some serious talk with you. What do
you intend to do with the property?
This Indecision worries me. Kltber re
lieve me of my trust, or be guided by
my advice,"
"Well, the fact Is," said nichard, with
a very ugly look on bis face, "I am much
pushed for money. Th fact Is, that
that I am tbluking of selling every
