"Well." Mill John Rex, "c arc In pri
vate. What have you to say?"
"I want to tell you that I forbid yon
to carry out the plan you have for break
ing up Sir Richard' property."
"Forbid me?" cried Hex, much re
listed. "Why, I only want to do what
my father's will enables mc to do."
"Your father's will enables you to do
nothing of the sort, and you know It."
She spoke, as though rehearsing a serle
of act speeehe. and Sarah watched her
with growing alarm.
"Oh, nonsense!" cries John Hex, In
eheer amazement. "I have a lawyer's
opinion on It."
"Do you remember what took place
it Hempstead this day nineteen yean?"
"At Hempstead?" said Hex, growing
suddenly pale. "This day nineteen year
ago? No! What do you mean?"
"Do you pot remember?" she contin
ued, leaning forward eagerly, and
speaking almost fiercely. "Do you not
remember the reason why you left the
houe where you were born, and which
you wish now to sell to strangers?"
John Hex stood dumfounded. the blood
suffusing his temple. He knew that
among the secrets of the man whose In
heritance he had stolen was one which
he had never gained and he felt that
this secret was to be revealed to crush
Sirah, trembling alo, bHt more with
rage than terror, swept toward Lady De
vlne. "Speak out." she said, "If you
have anything to say! Of what do you
accuse my husband?"
"Of lnijKture!" cried I.ady Devlne.
all her outraged maternity nerving her
to abash her enemy. "This man may
be your husband, but he Is not my son!
You Lave not stood the test, for you can
not recall the day of your quarrel and
mine over my cousin, Armlgell Esnie
Wade. Lord Hellasls."
John Hex gasped for breath; his band
tugging at his ueek-cloth, rent away
the linen that covered his choking throat.
The whole horizon of bis past was light
ed up by a lightning tlash which stun
ned hlra. His brain, already enfeebled
by excess, was unable to withstand this
last shock. He staggered, and. but fur
the cabinet against which he leaned,
would have fallen. The secret thoughts
of his heart rose to his lips, and were
tittered unconsciously. "Lord Hellasls!
He was my father, and I killed him I"
A dreadful silence fell; and then Lady
Devlne. stretching out her hands toward
the self-confessed murderer, with a sort
of frightful respect, said In a whisper.
In which horror and supplication were
strangely mingled. "What did you do
with my aon? Did you kill him also?"
Hut John Hex. wagging his head from
Ida to side, like a beast In the sham
bles that has received a mortal stroke,
made no reply. Sarah Purfoy, awed as
she was by the dramatic force of the
situation, nevertheless remembered that
Francis Wade might arrive at any mo
ment, and saw her last opportunity for
safety. She advanced and touched the
mother on the shoulder.
"Your son Is alive!"
"Will you promise not to hinder us
leaving this house if I tell you?"
"Will you uromlse to keep the confes
sion which you have heard secret until
we have left Kngland?" ,
"I promise anything. In heaven'
name, woman, If you have a womar 'a
heart, speak! Where Is my son?"
Sarah I'urfoy rose over the enemy Vho
had defeated her, and said, In level, de
liberate accents, "They call him I'ufus
Dawes. He Is a eonvkt at Xorfok Isl
and, transported for life for the murder
which you heard my husband eoi fes to
having 'commUted Ah!"
Lady Devlne had fainted, f
Sarah flew to Hex. "How yourself.
John! We have not a moment!"
John Hex passed his band over his
"I cannot think. I am broken down.
I am 111. My brain dtd."
Nervously watching th prostrate fig
ure on the floor, ahe hurried on bonnet,
cloak and veil, and In, a twinkling had
him outside the house md into a eab.
"You won't give me up?" said Hex,
turning dull eyes upon her.
"Give you up! Nf! Hut the police
will be after us so soon as that woman
can speak, and her brother summon his
lawyer. I know what her promise Is
worth. We have got about fifteen
"I can't go far. Sarah." Bald he; "I
am sleepy, and stupid."
She ropressed the terrible fear that
tugged at her heart, and strove to rally
"Now, sit still) and be good, while I go
and get some money for you."
She hurried Into the bank, and her
name secured her au Interview with the
manager at once.
"That's a rich Woman," said one of
the clerks to his friend.
"A widow, tooL Chance for you,
Tom," returned the ether; and, presently,
from out the sacred presence came an
other clerk with a nequest for "a draft
on Sydney for three! thousand, less pre
mium," and bearing a check signed
"Sarah Carr," for tfto hundred pounds,
which he "took" In ilotes, and so return
ed again. From the(banksho was tak
en to a shipping ofllffe.
"I want a cabin In the first ship for
Sydney, please. Whan does the Dido
"To-morrow mornlngA She Is at Ply
mouth, waiting for the oialls. If you go
(Iowa to-night by the mU train, which
leaves at 0:30, you will be In plenty of
time, and wo will telegraph."
"I will take the cabin."
John Hex was gnawing his nails In
sullen apathy. She displayed the pas
sage ticket. "You are saved. Hy the
time Mr. Devlne gets his wits together,
and his sister recovers her speech, we
shall bo past pursuit."
"To Sydney!" cried Hex. angrily, look
ing at the warrant. "Why there?"
Sarah surveyed him with an expres
sion of contempt. "Hecause your scheme
had failed. Now, this Is mine. You
have deserted me once; you will not do
so again In any other country. You are
a murderer, a villain and a coward; but
you suit me. I save you, but I mean to
keep you. I will bring you to Australia,
where the first trooper will arrest you at
my bidding as an escaped convict. If
you don't like to come, stay behind.
I don't care. I am rich, I have done
no wrong. The law cannot touch me.
Do you agree?"
Having housed him at last all
gloomy and despondent In n quiet tav
ern near the railway station, she tried
to get some Information as to this last
"How came you to kill Lord Hella
sls?" she naked him, quietly.
"I had found out from my mother
that she was his deserted wife, and one
day riding home from a pigeon mateh I
told him so. He taunted me. and I
struck him. I did not mean to kill him,
hut he was an old man, and In my pas
sion I struck hard. As he fell, I thought
I saw a horseman among the trees, and
I galloped off. My III luck began then,
for the same night I was arrested at the
"Hut I thought there was robbery?"
"Not by me. Hut talk no more about
It! I am sick my brain is going round.
I want to sleep."
"He careful, please! Lift him gently!"
said Mrs. Carr, as the boat ranged along
side the Dido, gaunt and grim. In the
early dawn of a bleak May morning.
"Gentleman seems to have had a
stroke," said a boatman.
It was so. There was no fear that
John Hex would escape again from the
woman he had deceived. The Infernal
genius of Sarah Purfoy had saved her
lover at last but saved him only that
she might nurse him till he died died,
Ignorant t-ven of her tenderness, a mere
animal, lacking the Intellect he had in
hts selfish wickedness abused.
"This Is my story. Let it plead with
It had grown dark In the prison, and
as he ceased speaking, Hufu Dawes felt
a trembling hand seize his own. It was
thst of the chaplain.
"Let me hold your hand! Sir Rich
ard Devlne did not murder your father.
He was murdered by a horsemsn who,
riding with him, struck him and fled."
"How do you. know this?"
"Heeause I saw the murder commit
ted, because don't let go my hand I
robbd the body."
"In my youth I was a gambler. Lord
Hellasls won money from me. and to
nr him I forged two bills of exehange.
Unscrupulous and cruel, he threatened
to expose me If I did not give him dou
ble the sum. Forgery was death In
those days, and I strained every nerve
to buy back the proofs of my folly. I
succeeded. I was to meet Lord Hellasls
near his own house at Hampstead on the
night of which you speak, to xiy the
money and receive the bills. When I
saw him fall I galloped up, but Instead
of pursuing his murderer I rilled his
pocketbook of my forgeries. I was afraid
to give evidence, at the trial, or I might
have saved you. Ah! you have let go
"fiod forgive you!" said Riifus Dawes,
and then was silent.
Speak!" erled North. "Speak, or
you will make me mad. Reproach uie!
Spurn me! Spit upon me! You cannot
think worse of me than I do mymdf,"
Hut the other, his bead burled In his
hands, dbl wot answer, and, with n
wild gesture, North staggered out of the
Nearly an hour had passed since the
chaplain bad placed the rum llask In
his hand, and Clmblett observed, with
semi-drunken astonishment, that it was
not yet empty. If he didn't finish the
flask, lie would be oppressed with au
everlasting regret. If he did finish It,
he would be drunk; and to be drunk on
duty was the one unpardonable sin. Tie
looked across the darkness of the sea,
to where the rising and falling light
marked the schooner. The commandant
was a long way off! A faint breeze
which had arisen with the night, brought
up to him the voices of the boat's crew
from the Jetty below him. Ills friend
Jack Mannlx was coxswain of her. He
would give Jack a drink. Leaving the
gate, he advanced to the edge of the
embankment, and, putting his head over,
called out to his friend. The breeze,
however, which was momentarily fresh
ening, carried his voice away; and Jack
Mannlx, hearing nothing, continued his
conversation. Gimblett was Just drunk
enough to be virtuously indignant at this
Incivility, and seating himself on the
edge of the bank, swallowed the remain
der of the rum at a draught. The ef
fect upon his enforcedly temperate stom
ach was very touching. He made one
feeble attempt to get upon his legs, cast
reproachful glance at the rum bottle,
essayed to drink out of Its spirituous
emetines, and then, with a smile of
teekloss couttuit incut, fell fast asleep.
North, coming out of the prison, did
not notice thu absence of the Jailer; In
deed, he was not In n condition to notice
anything. Hare-headed, without his
cloak, with staring eyes and clinched
hands, he rushed through the gates Into
the night as one who tiles headlong from
some fearful vision. It seemed that,
absorbed In his own thoughts, h took
no heed to his steps, for Instead of tak
ing the path which led to the sen, he
kept along the more familiar one that
led to his own cottage on the hill. "This
man a convict!" he cried. "Mo Is n hero
a martyr! What n life! Love! Yes,
that Is love Indeed! Oh, James North,
how base art thou In the eyes of (lod
beside this despised outcast!" And o
muttering, tearing his gray hair, and
beating his throbbing temples with
clinched hands, he reached his own
room. Already he fancied he could see
the speck that was the schooner move
slowly away from the prison shore, lie
must not linger; they would be waiting
for him at the Jetty. As he turned, the
uoouhcams as yet ilnobscurod by the
rapidly gathering clouds Hung a sliver
streak across the sea, and across that
streak North saw a lmat pass, Was
his distracted brain playing him false?
In the stern sat, wrapped In a cloak,
the figure of a man! A fierce gust of
wind drovo the sea-rack over the moon,
and tho boat disappeared, as though
swallowed up by the gathering storm.
North stnggercd back as the truth struck
Was It possible that a Just heaven
had thus decided to allow tho man whom
a coward had condemned to escape, and
to punish the coward who remained? Oh,
this man deserved freedom; he was hon
est, noble, truthful! How different from
himself hateful self-lover, a drunk
ard! The looking glass stood upon the
table, and North, peering Into It, start
ed In Insano rage at the pale feeo and
bloodshot, eyes he saw there. What a
hateful wretch he had become!

NEW TELEPHONE RELAY.
Illlllenllles of Former lie lee llima
Anr illli li) 'Ibis One,
According to the Kloetrlciil Review
Dr. John Trowbridge has applied new
principles lu devising a telephone lelny
which have ooreniu the dllllcullb's
met lu previous designs. Among Ih.t
Mumbling blocks which luoo la-en in
the way of the (mentors of telephone
relays, two hate been prominent. One
or them I the so-called growling or
crackling noise which Is produced by
the Instrument when the microphone
transmitter Is used for inupllfyliiic tho
signals. The other illlllculty has Immii
to secure Independent adjustment ,f
the receiving and transmitting Nirtloiis
of the devlre. The former illlllculty 1
meriiuiie lu the present Instrument by
placing the moving part of the re
ceiver, which Is a light Inmlnntcd elec
tro magnet, lu a balanced magnet field,
and by keeping the center of the dia
phragm of this part of the Instrument
fico from pressure.
To transmit the vibrations of this
part of the Instrument to the micro
phone, tlit movement of the outer edge
are utlllred and not those or the center
und these Ubrallon nro transmitted
through metal and not through air,
which Is a sstr transmitter. 1'iirtlier.
this construction does not - Interfere
with the motion of the dlnplirngm. Thl
metal transmitter Is brought lu contact
with the microphone transmitter and
the pressure betweu the two call be nil
Justed without Interfering with the ad
justment of the receiving wrt. This
mean of transmitting tin- vibration
of one jwrt of the Instrument to the
other Is new, and upon It, It I said,
the suectwM of the Instrument largely
depend. Dr. Trowbridge has found
tlmt. lu the lalsiratory excellent result,
are obtained will It.
A satisfactory teli-plwine relay would,
of course, greatly lonut the telephone
art, ns It would net only Increase the
ordinary distance of emnuiiiulCHtloii,
but would assist In reducing the cost
of the transmission line. Such a de
vice would be the more welcome to-day,
as other proNised methods of Improv
ing telephone transmission do not seem
to hne made as much headway as was
oxpis'ted. It doos not seem, laiwever,
thst any form of relay In which mov
ing wrts are cuiplojcd ran lm niqdled
to submarine work, except, of course,
til cases where the relBy Itself would
ho placed hImho water. It Is out of
the question to place any Instrument
which requires adjustment from time to
time under water.
