I For The Term of His Natural Life j
By MARCUS CLARKE
"Sell North Km! House!" cried poor
Mr. Wade, In bewilderment. "Why. the
carvings by Grlnllng Gibbons nr the
finest In the world."
"I can't help that." hushed Mr.
Richard. "I want cash, and cash I must
"Then what do you propose doing.
"To buy iw mother's life Interest as
provided, realize upon the property, and
travel." said Mr. Richard.
"You amaie roe, IMchard. You con
found me. Of course you can do as you
please. Hut no sudden a determination.
The old home scattered vases coins
picture I really Well. It U your
property, of course and and and I
wish you a Tery good momlngl"
,V knock at the door made Richard
tart. "Come Inl What's thatT Let
ter? Olre them to me. lie began to
open his correspondence before his ser
vant. "When did this come?" asked Mr.
IMchard, holding out a letter more than
usually disfigured with stampings.
"Lara night, sir. It's bin to 'Anntcad,
lr, and come dowu directed with the
bothers." The angry glare of the black
eyes Induced him to add, "I 'opo there's
nothing wrong, sir?"
"Nothing, you Idiot!" burst out Mr.
Richard, white with rage, "except that
I should hare bad this Instantly. Can't
you see It's marked urgent? Can you
read? Can you spell? There, that will
do. No lies. Get out!"
Left to himself again, Mr. Richard
walked hurriedly up and down the
chamber, wiped his forehead and finally
sat down and re-read the letter. It
was short, but terribly to the purpose?
"The George Hotel, Plymouth.
"My Dear Jack I hare found you
out, you see. Never mind just how at
present. I know all about your' proceed
ings, and unless Mr. Richard Devine
recelres his wife with due propriety,
he'll find himself in the custody of the
police. Telegraph, dear, to Mrs. Rich
ard Derlne at above address. Yours a
ever, Jack. SARAH."
The blow was unexpected and severe.
It waa hard. In the very high tide and
flush of assured success, to be thus
plucked back Into the old bondage. De
spite the affectionate tone of the letter,
lie knew the woman with whom he hail
to deal. For some furious minutes he
sat motionless, gazing at the letter. He
did not speak men seldom do under
such circumstances but bis thoughts
ran in this fashion: "Here is this wom
an again! Just as I was congratulat
ing myself on my freedom. How did
she discover me? Small use asking that.
What shall I do? I can do nothing. It
is absurd to run away, for I shall be
caught. Resides, I've no money. My
account Is overdrawn two thousand
pounds. If I bolt at all, I must bolt
at once within twenty-four hours. Rich
as I am. I don't suppose I could raise
more than five thousand pounds In that
time. These things take a day or two,
say forty-eight hours. In forty-eight
hours I could raise twenty thousand
pounds, but forty-eight hours is too
long. It's a bad job. However, she's
not inclined to be gratuitously disagree
able. How lucky I never married again!
I had better make terms and trust to
fortune. After all, she's been a good
friend to me. Poor Sally! I might
have rotted on Kaglebawk Neck, If It
iiadn't been fur her. She is not a bad
sort. Handsome woman, too. I may
make It up with her. I shall have to
sell off and go away, after all. It might
he worse. I dare say the property's
worth three hundred thousand pounds.
Not bad for a start In America. And I
may get rid of her yet. Ye. I must
give in. Smlthers! A telegraph form
and a cab! Stay. Pack me a dressing
bag; I shall have to go away for a day
or so. I'd better see her myself."
Time rolled on, and some years after
the escape of Rex, the ottlce of com
mandant at Norfolk Island became va
cant. It was offered to Maurice Frere.
who, much against the withes of his
wife, accepted It. Ou his arrival he
fouud Mr. North occupying the position
of chaplain there, having been trans
ferred from Port Arthur some time pre
viously. He found also Rufus Dawo,
who had been sent there by the authori
ties as a last resource.
Though the house of the commandant
was comfortable and well furnished, and
though, of necessity, all that was most
hideous in the "discipline" of the place
was hidden, the loathing with which Syl
via had approahced the last and most
dreaded abiding place of the elaborate
couvict system, under which it had been
her misfortune to live, had not decreas
ed. The sights and souuds of pain and
punishment surrounded her. She could
not look out of her windows without a
"I wish, Maurice, we had never come
here," alio said, plteously. "These un
happy men will do you some frightful
Injury one of these daya."
"Stuff!" said her husband. "They've
not the courage. I'd take the best man
among them, and dare blm to touch me.
Jenkins, I say!" The convict servant
eulered. "Where Is the charge book?
I've told you always to have it ready
for me. Why don't you do as you are
told? Give me the book." Taking it
and runulng his finger down the leaves,
he commented on the list of offenses to
which ho would be called upon In the
inorning to mete out Judgment.
"MUes Byrne, not walking fast
enough We mutt enliven Mr. Ryrne.
Thomas Twist, haxlng n pipe and strik

muster; says he was 'washing himself
I'll wash him! John Richards, misting

solence and Insubordination. James
Hopkins. Insolence. Rufus Dawes, gros
Insolence, refusing to work. Ah! we
mut look after you. You are a parson's
man. are you? I'll break your spirit
my man, or I'll Sylvia! Your friend
Dawes Is doing credit to his bringing
"What do you mean?"
"That villain and reprobate. Dawes."
She Interrupted him. "Maurice. I
wish you would not use such language.
You know I dislike It." She spoke
coldly and sadly, as one who knows that
remonstrance Is vain, and Is yet con
strained to remonstrate.
"Oh. dear! My Ijidy Proper! How
refined we are getting!"
"There, I did not mean to annoy you."
said she, wearily. "Don't let us quarrel,
for goodness' sake."
The Insubordination of which Rufus
Dawes had been guilty was insignificant.
It was the custom of the newly fledged
constables of Captain Frere to enter the
wards at night, armed with cutlasses,
tramping about, and making a great
noise. The men In Dawes' gang were
often searched more than once In a
night, searched going to work, searched
at meals, searched going to prayers,
searched coming out, aud this In the
Now, Rufus Dawes, holding aloof, aa
was bis custom, from the majority of his
eampantons, had made oue friend if so
mindless and battered an old wreck
could be called a friend llllnd Mooney.
One of the many ways In which Rufus
Dawes had obtained the affect lou of the
old blind man was the gift of such frag
ments of tobacco as he had himself from
time to time secured. Troke knew this;
and ou the evening in question hit upon
an excellent plan. Admitting himself
noiselessly Into the boat shed, where the
gang slept, he crept close to the sleeping
Dawes, and counterfeiting Mooney's
mumbling utterance, asked for "some to
bacco." Rufus Dawes was but half
awake, and Troke felt something put
Into bis hand. He grasped Dawes' arm,
and struck a light. He had got his man
this time. Dawes had conveyed to his
fancied friend a piece of tobacco almost
as big as the top Joint of bis little lin
ger. One can understand the feelings of a
man entrapped by such base means.
Rufus Dawes no sooner saw the hated
face of Warder Troke peering over his
hammock than he sprang out, and, ex
erting to the utmost his powerful mus
cles, knocked Mr. Troke fairly off his
legs Into the arms of the Incoming con
stables. A desperate struggle took place,
at the end of which the convict, over
powered by numbers, was borne sense
less to the cells, gagged and chained
to the ring bolt on the bare flags. While
In this condition he was savagely beaten
by five or six constablts. To this maim
ed and manacled rebel was the com
mandant ushered by Troke the next
"Ha! ha! my man," said the com
mandant. "Here you are again, you see.
How do you like this sort of thing?"
Dawes, glaring, makes no answer.
"You shall have fifty lashes, my man,"
said Frere. "We'll see how you'll feel
The fifty were duly administered, and
the commandant called the next day.
The rebel was still mute. Frere gave
him fifty more lashes, and sent him the
next day to grind cayenne pepper. This
was a punishment more dreaded by the
convicts than any other. The pungent
dust filled their eyes and lungs, causing
them the most excruciating torments.
For a man with a raw baek the work
was one continued agony. In four days
Rufus Dawes, emaciated, blistered,
blinded, broke down.
"Captain Frere, kill me at once!" he
"No fear," said the other, rejoiced at
this proof of bis power. "You've given
lu; that's all I wanted. Troke, take him
to the hospital."
The next day Frere visited him, com
plimented him on his courage, ami offer
ed to make him a constable. Dawes
turned his scarred back to his torturer,
and resolutely declined to answer,
"I am afraid you have made an enemy
of the commandant," said North the next
day. "Why not accept his offer?"
Dawes cast on him a glance of quiet
scorn. "And betray my mates? I'm
not one of that sort."
North pityingly Implored the stubborn
mind to bave mercy on the lacerated
body, but without effect. Ills own way
ward heart gave him the key to read
the cipher of this man's life. "A noble
nature ruined," said he to himself.
"What is the secret of his history?"
One day this bond was drawn so close
as to tug at both their heart strings.
The chaplain bad a flower In his coat.
Dawes eyed It with hungry looks, ami,
as tho clergyman was about to quit the
room, said, "Mr. North, will you give
me that rosebud?" North paused Irres
olutely, and, finally, as If after a strug
gle with himself, took it carefully from
his button bole and placed It In the pris
oner's brown, scarred band. In another
instant, Dawes believing himself alone,
pressed the gift to his lips. North turn
ed abruptly, and the eyes of the pair
met. Dawes flushed crimson, hut North
turned white as death. Neither spoke,
but each was drawn closer to the other,
since both had kissed tho rosebud pluck
ed by Sylvia's lingers.
Since the "tobacco trick." Mooney and
Dawes had been placed In the new
prison, together with n man mimed
Kland, who had already twice failed to
kill himself. When old Mooney la
mented his hard case, ltland proposed
that the three should put In practice a
scheme In which two at least must suc
ceed. Tho scheme was a desperate oue,
and attempted only lu the last extrem
ity, it was the custom of the "ring,"
however, to swear each of Its member
to curry out to the best of hi ability
this last Invention of the convict disci
plined mind, should two other members
crave his assistance.
The scheme was simplicity Itself. That
evening, when the cell door was secure
ly locked, ninl the altsenco of u visiting
Jailer might be counted upon for nu
hour at least, Rlrtitd produced a straw,
aud held It out to his companions.
Dawes took It, and tearing It into un
equal lengths, handed the fragment to
"The longest Is the one." said the
blind man. "Come on, boys, aud dip
In the lucky bug."
It was evident that lots were to be
drawn to determine to whom fortune
would grant freedom. The men drew lu
silence, and then lllniid and Dawes
looked at each other. The prise hail
been left In the bag. Mooney fortu
nate old fellow retained the longest
straw, Rland's hand shook as he com
pared notes with his companion. There
was a moment's pause, during which
the blank cyc-ball of the blind man
fiercely searched the gloom, as if In that
awful moment they could peiielrale it.
"I hold the shortest." said Dawes to
Illand. "TIs you that must do It."
"I'm glad of that." said Mooney.
Rlaiid. seemingly terrified at the dan
ger which fate had decreed that he
should rim, tore the fatal lot Into frag
ments, and sat gnawing his knuckles
In excess of abject terror. Muoney
stretched himself out upon bis plank
bed. "Come on. mate," be said. Rlaiid
extended a slinking hand, and caught
Rufus Dawes by the sleeve.
"You have more nerve than I. You
"No, no." said Dawes, almost as pal
as his companion. "I've run my chance
fairly. 'Twas your own proposal."
The coward who. confident lu his own
luck, would seem to have fallen Into the
pit he had dug for others, sat rocking
himself to and fro. holding his head in
"I can't do it!" he whispered, lifting
a white, wet face.
"What are you waiting for?" saM forj
tunato Mooney. "Come on; I'm ready."
"I I thought you might like toto
pray n bit." said Illand. ,
The notion sepmed to sober the sensM
of the old man. exalted loo fiercely by
his good fortune.
"Ay!" he said. "Pray! A good
thought!" And he knelt down, and,
shutting his blind eyes 'twas as (hough
ho was dazzled by some strong light
unseen by his comrades, moved his lips
It was quite dark now In the celt: but
as Illand advanced his face was like a
white mask floating upon the darkness.
Dawes pressed his lucky comrade's hand,
and withdrew to the fHrthet corner.
When Troke came In the morning, he
saw what had occurred at a glance, aud
hastened to remove the corpse of the
"We drew lots." said Rufus Dawes,
pointing to Illand, who crouched lu the
corner furthest from his victim, "and It
fell upon him to do It. I'm the wit
new." , .
They'll hang you all for that," said
"I hope so." said Rufus Dawes.
The scheme of escape hit upon by tho
convict Intellect was simply this: Three
men being together. lots were drawn to
determine who should be murdered. The
drawer of the longest straw was the
"lueky" man. He was killed. Tho
drawer of the next longest strnw was
the murderer. He was hanged. Tho
unlucky one was the witness. He hud,
of course, on excellent cbaiiee of being
banged also, but his doom was not so
certain, and he therefore looked upon
himself as unfortunate.
