The Trail of the Dead:
THE STRANGE EXPERIENCE
OF DR. ROBERT IIARLAND
Cy D. FLETCHER ROBINSON and J. MALCOLM FRASER
(Copjrlthl. 1003, by Josrph D. Uowlci)
In my narrative, now drawing to Its
conclusion, I have endeavored to avoid
tmotlon or exaggeration. Yet ns I glance
I out It pages, I cannot proclaim myself
as satisfied. On such an evening an this

M ft nightmare born In the land of crll
dreams. Yet I have but, to turn my eyes
to where my dearest wife sits at her
frork. to know that It W true; for It was
la that time of danicer that Providence
tare me the most generous of the gifts
uat can be bestowed UH)ii man.
Two days after Maniac ccaied from
our pursuit at Southampton, a little coun
cil was gathered in the parlor of Dr.
Wcton's cottage at Cornish Polleven.
Xn h's great arm-chair by the fire sat the
old scholar, with the lamplight exposing
tho delicate fragility of a face whereon
consumption had set Its warning. In odd
coitrt was my cousin. Sir Henry Ur.v
den. who confronted him. (Jreat-stat-ur.M,
stern, keen-eyed, he was of that
type that can fearlessly execute, as well
ft Intelligently conceive, a plan. Mary
Weston was on a cushion at her father's
k ee, his hand In hers; ami it was more
often to that noble girl that uiy glance
wandered than to my cousin, though, In
d H-d It was he who now set before us
the position of affairs.
It was right, he said, that Dr. Weston
rhould know, even as his daughter knew,
the danger that hung over us. And so.
from Its commencement, he tokl that ter
rib story; how Marnac. the celebrated
Heidelberg professor, had been seized
with a partial mania born of heredity,
nurtured by overwork, brought suddenly
to the light of the violent attacks deliv
ered against a book on which be had
Fpent half his life; how he had planned
to destroy his more bitter adversaries,
nnd how, by his Insane cunning, be had
brought about the deaths of Von Stock
mar and Mechersky; how, In his des
erate lllght from our pursuit, he had
1.11 el the son of Iteikl, the Polish Inn-
keeper; bow be had come to Kngland
to end his vengeance upon Dr. Weston;
nnd how he had been led to believe that
Mary was the writer of tbo attack which
liad Incensed him. All this he explained;
nnd while he apdke, the shadow of the
terror seemed to creep over our very
f.uls, so that we drew together like

Mechersky, ami myself?"
' There were several other names," re
plied my cousin; "but I do not think their
criticisms were soWelently severe to
place them In serious danger. I have,
however communicated with them all.
On the least suspicion they will Inform
tho police and also telegraph to me at
my London house. My servant there Is

may be In France or Itelgluw."

"For the moment we have wo definite
objective. It would be useless fur u 10
Mart for the 'continent without further
Information. Until It reached us, we
bhall stay in thU eountry."
"I iiulte understand. I trust that for
the ton days that we still have at Poll
even, you will consider yourselves my
guests though I fear that the size of
my cottage forbids me asking you to
leave your quarter nt the Inn."
"Are you, then, returning to Cam
bridge. Dr. Weston? I thought you bad
settled hero for the whiter?" asked my
"It was so lutonded, but my doctors
linvo ordered me to the HngHdlue. TJiey
nay it is my only chauee, Sir Henry."
Mary Weston's eyes rose to bur fath
er's face In ono brief, pitiful glance, and
then her bead dropped forward. Poor
girl! she knew that he had spoken truly,
Graden rose in his ponderous fashion
nnd stood with his back to the fire. I
could see Unit the Intelligence concerned
him concerned him, Indeed, too nearly
for immediate comment. It was some
moments before he spoko again.
"Forgive me, Dr. Weston," he said,
"but Is this a sudden resolution?"
"We decided yesterday."
"la It common property? Do the vil
la gers know?"
"Ileally, Sir Henry, I bavo no Idea. I
should not think they know."
"I will be quite plain with you, Dr.
Weston, for that Is always the beat. Un
til this madman Is secured, you and your
daughter go In some danger. You should
be safe enough In Swlticrland, If you
keep your address n secret. Hut even
thou wc must arrange that you havo n
traveling companion that can be trust
ed." "I shall be very glad to go," I Inter
jected. "No, Robert, that will never do." he
said. "To divide our forces would bo
the worst generalship. Our duty Is plain.
We must lie prepared to strike nt the en
emy wherever he may bo found. Other
wise, there will lo weeks of anxiety for
us alt, and heaven knows what devilish
work going forwardl Whom can we
send? That we must first decide."
"There Is Moss), I suggested, recall
ing the aid that stubborn German police
man had already rendered us.
"lie would come gladly enough. Hut
I do not think the Heidelberg authorities
would sanction his departure on so vague
a Journey. No! I am afraid Mossel
Is out of the question."
"What of lteskl? I saw him fiud the
body of his son; he would travel to the
world's end If It brought n chance to meet
'The very man. I thank you. Cousin
Ami so it was settled. We were to
semi a telegram to the Polish Inn-keeper
next morning. If he agreed to our re
quest, money could be forwarded In time
for him to meet us in Iottdon, where he
would take up his duty as escort to Dr.
Weston and his daughter.
"Remember, please, that your destina
tion Is a secret," said Graden, as we
made our adieus. 'There must be no
leaving of Indiscreet addresses. Dr. Wee
ton; uo explanatory letters to old friends.
"My father and I we understand,"
she said, looking him gravely lu the eyes.
And so we passed out Into the starlight.
They were pleasant days that followed
days that seemed to me the happiest
In my life. Was It the contrast with
the events of that terrible pursuit which
gave them their perfection? So I argued
at the time. Yet each hour I knew more
clearly that It was Mary's bright eyes
that warmed the winter, sunshine, and
Mary's presence that gave the beauty to
that wild, inhospitable coast. Of morn
ings we walked together on the cliffs;
ami as night drew In, blotting out the
grey wastes of the Channel seas, we
joined Graden ami her father in the lit
tle parlor, listening to the talk of those
two great-hearted, simple men. On the
second day Iteskl's answer came, accept
ing the trust we offered. Then for a
week there was uo news from the out
side world to trouble us, and no inci
dent at Polleven to remind us of our dan
ger save one, wbleb, insignificant though
it sewd, I do right to set It before yon.
As I have mentioned, a narrow dell or
"goyle," as the West-country folk would
have it. ran between the cottage ami the
sea. It was a ruinous place In the win
ter-time, sprinkled with trees knotted and
bent under years of conflict with the
winds, ami floored with dead bracken
and itstebei of gorse. In the summer It
was, doubtless, pleasing enough; but In
that December weather It seamed shriv
eled ami forlorn. Indeed, It was uot a
spot we greatly favored.
"Was Penrumnn courting Mnrtha
"I don't know, Mr. ltarlnnd; but this
Is the first time I've seen thorn together.
Please don't say anything more nbout It.
I will have n talk to Mnrtha privately.
and see If I can put some sense Inlo
her silly head. '
As I was walking Iwok to the Inn be
fore dinner I caught sight of Penrumnn
coming out of the village postolllec. lie
slouched nway up a side street at sight
of me. You may think me dull, but I
had no suspicion of the truth.
If I had only known.
Wo nil traveled to London together,
taking rooms for the night at the Chat
lug Cros-t Hotel; for though Graden had
chambers lu the Albany, he preferred
that we should not be separated. It was
here that lteskl Joined us. Sorrow had
burnt Its mark upon tho Polish Inn-
keeper. Ills thin, handsome feature
were yet more drawn; nnd though his
courtly manner was unchanged, an allot!
ferocity lurked In bis dark, reflective
eyes. It would not go well with tho
murderer of his onlv son If he should
meet him face to face. So I thought ns
he stood before us, his hat raised, bowing
us a welcome.
At nine-forty on the following morn
ing, we were gathered In n little group
on the departure platform. Graden, who
had talked with lteskl far Into the night,
repeated his orders. To preserve the
secret of Dr. Weston's residence was of
first Importance. He would register him
self and his daughter lu the name of
Jackson. All letters, whether from or
to the travelers, were to ln forwarded
under cover to Graden's chamber, where
a servant lu whom he had absolute trust
would despatch them to their respective
addresses. On the slightest suspicion of
danger, n telegram would bring our as
sistance from whatever stmt our quest
had drawn us. Neither Dr. Weston nor
his daughter were to leave their hotel
at Prontreslna. even for a walk, without
the escort of the Pole.
"I do not wish to alarm you with ab
surd rules. Miss Mary." concluded my
cousin; "but It I well to lie cautious.
Hesbles. It should be only for a few ilays.
I have found means of awakening the
continental police to lot rest In hH cap
ture, ami we may hear of his arrest at
any moment. Ah! there goes the whistle.
Good-bye, Dr. Weston. Good-bye. my
dear glrL God keep you!"
He was old euough to lie her father;
yet I did not consider his age was sultl
dent excuse for the kis that he touched
on her forehead.
We saw her handkerchief fluttering
from the carriage window n.s the train
drew out of the station. I watched it
fade hito the muddy grey of the morn-
lug: and as It disappeared, the love I
hod hidden from myself rushed over me.
so that I stood with staring eyes, per
haps as foolish and woe-begono n figure
as humanity has ever sinlltil to witness.
Ami for this I shall always thank my
cousin, Harry Grnden, that ho slipped hU
arm In mine, leading me down the plat
form as If he bad noticed nothing out of
the ordinary In my manner.

It was about four o'clock on a Satur
day afternoon, the fifth day of our visit,
that Miss Weston and I entered it from
the seaward side. We bad taken a sharp

an angle of tue thicket a wan awl a

twinkling in her eyes.

"and at her age, too!
"Why, who was It'" I akal, for tlwir
backs wvre turned towards us.

Whereupon she fairly gave way to her
Merriment in a low ripple of laughter.
It was loud enough to reach the ears of
the pair before in, for they started to
their feet, the woman faelng round bold
ly with llaming cheeks, while the man,
after one swift glance, dropped baek a
step ami stood shamefacedly, with down
cast ejros. Miss Weston nodded to
Martha and wo pauoil on up the track.
"Oh! I am xery, vary sorry!" she
cried to mo when we were out of ear
