CHAPTER XVIII.-(Continued.)
Mr. Parsons had been listening to the
conversation, with a supercilious sneer
upon hla face. "Oh, Mr, Jerome ia quite
fright," he miIiI, In hW mull drawling
manner. "She looked awfully frightened."
Stafford felt greatly Inclined to dash
Ma fist In the aea1(er'a face. Hut tbe
cold perspiration was atartinic from every
Kre, and he frit tick at heart aa he ask
ed the question, "Did you speak to her?"
"As I told you," continued Jerome, "I
pressed forward aa soon aa I ww her, but
the moment the set her ye upon roe,
ahe hurried Into the carriage, and the old
man after her. The servant banged the
door, t ran up to the window, but It
was pulled down In uty face, and the car
riage alarted. Had I been a little more
prepared for o suddenly meeting her, ahe
would not bare escaped roe quite ao

ej Stafford.
"Shown her up before all her aer

lioah the matter up.
"It la not money I want, but reTcnge,"
answered Jerome, aavagely.
"Well. well, let us drop the subject."
said Stafford, abruptly. "After all. It la
nothing to me. Hut I with to apeak to
you on a little matter of ouslnrss alone
for a few minute. Can we not go Into
your bedroom?"
Aa aoon aa tbey were closeted atone.
Stafford gave way to the agitation that
ver-maatered him. "Jerome," he aald,
with trembling voice and llpa, "I did not
wlh those fellowa to know that I had
any interest In the affair, but I have
the deepest. Jerome, we have been friends
now of some yrars standing, and I be
Here we hare a sincere liking for each
other at least, I can apeak for myaelf.
Let me, then conjure you, If you have the
smallest particle of respect for me, do
not molest this lady: leave the affair In
my hands. You do not know how much
my happiness or misery depends upon
the Issue."
"Why, my dear fellow, what alls you V
cried Jerome. "You don't mean to aay
(hat this woman haa wound her tolls
round you? If ao, the greatest favor I
could do you would be to unmask her,
end cur yon of such an infatuation."
"Do not apeak of her In that way; I
cannot endure to hear It," exclaimed Staf
ford, passionately. "If you knew her aa
I do, a being ao utterly opposed to the
slle coquette by whom you were deceived,
you would perceive, like myaelf, how Im
possible It U that she ahould be the aame
person. Now, listen to me. During the
last two daya I have been using every
means to trace the woman whom you
knew aa Katie Doran."

"fokeep aecret until, at least, I bad ob
tained some clue; but what I have heard
In your etudlo renders auch aecrecy impos
alble." Then Stafford went on to tell
how be had discovered the picture of Circe
to be In the possesion of Sir Launce
I'enrbyddyn; bow be had made a aketch
of It, and traced the picture dealer who
had aold It.
Jeromb listened to every word with the
most profound astonishment, never once
Interrupting the speaker.
"Thla myatery I waa determined to
smlve," Stafford continued. "Kven now
there (s a strange, half-defined Idea float
ing In my brain, at present too Inexplica
ble to be spoken of; but It 'a a clue that
J shall follow up. Trust to me, Jerome;
you know I am not easily turned aside
from any undertaking I once engage In;
nnd I pledge you my honor that If the
be the delinquent, which I will stake my
soul ahe is not, you need not fear that I
will shield ber."
"There's my band upon the bargain,"
cried Jerome. "I am heartily sorry that
you should take any Interest .'n this wom
an, who Is Katie Doran aa sure aa you
stand there. Hut since you wlah it, the
matter shall be put aalda for a time; and
now let ua go back to the boys."
"No, not now," replied Stafford. "Who
Is that fellow, Parsons, you Introduced me
tot Where did you pick him up?"
"Oh, I hare met him In different places,
and, of late, be baa taken to coming
Stafford left tbe house In a miserably
depressed atate of mind. There was some
thing terrible in tbese ever-accumulating
proofs. Hrarely he fought against and
cut out evtrj doubt; but the struggle
was a sore one.
At eight o'clock that aame evening Wy
lie was sitting with Mrs. Wylle. Dinner
had Just been removed, and they were
nlone. Tbe gentleman wore an air of su
preme content; but the lady looked
gloomy and ill at ease.
"Hannah, my dear," aald Mr. Wylle,
after a pause, "I have made a great dis
covery to-day."
"Indeed I" ahe aald, drearily, without
lifting ber gate from tbe fire, whereon
It bad been fixed during- tbe last ten min
utes. "Supposing I were to tell you that
Constance is twenty next birthday, In
stead of nineteen, as everybody seems to
appose T' , ,
"Impossible!" cried his wife, raising
her . "I bar seen tbe data of ber
birth over and over again In the family
"And I lure seen the parish register,"
answered her husband, triumphantly.
"S1k was born on the first day of Decem
ber, 1875; consequently, on the first day
of December, l&KS, she will b twenty
years of age."
"The Hlble say she was born In
137(1," persisted the lady.
"Hut If you remember, dear," argued
Mr. Wylle, In his softest tone, "the Hlble
now extant U not the original. When the
flro broke out In Harley street the old
Hlble was among the things burnrd; and
Tom Grlersou did not replace It until
some two or three years afterward. Con
stance was then between eleven and
twelve years old. lie himself Inserted
that and other dates In the new book
from memory; and you know Tom hail
not much of a head for domrsttc matter.
Some fancied coincidence probably mis
led him."
"And how came you to discover tnls?"
"Well, the other dty I was running
back In my memory to trace certain
events, when an association of Ideas sud
denly obtruded the picture of Constance
a baby In arms at a time that, according
to received data, she could not have been
born. lrpon which, I traced Back the tUte
of Arabella's marriage, and the time that
elapsed before the child' birth Finding
all my memorlra at fault with the a fore
Mid data, I Immediately adopted the sim
plest means of putting the question at rest
by an examination of the registers, In
which I found I waa right."
"Do you think her uncle knows of
"I do not think so, or he would have
been certain to let It out In some Indirect
wny he never can keep anything. No, I
hope to come down upon them wtth tbe
news like an avalanche. Constance Grler
on will certainly not be married to a
man of family by the first of December,
and aa certainly will ahe forfeit her for
tune If she Is not On the thirtieth of
November, I'enrhyddyn will virtually be
ours. On the first of December, the day
afterwards, our share of old Tom Orler
son's fortune will drop Into our mouths.
Hut you do not em elated at this glo
rious news." he aald, observing his wife's
somber looks.
"Hecause I cannot reconcile myself to
tbe villainous means by which It will be
gained," she answered, moodily.
"The whole affair la a pure business
transaction," he aald. Impatiently. "I
am left by will ten thousand pounds, to
be paid out of the mortgage money of
certain estates; If tbe mortgage money Is
not paid, I bave a fancy to bzj up those
estate. Where Is the crrme In that? An
other sum of money Is left tq,nt OK con
dition that a, ceriltt young lady does
not marry byu certain age. Ia It locum-
-tent upon me to see that she does fulfill
tbese conditions for tbe sake of not hav
ing tbe money? I did not make the pro
visions for the foreclose of the mortgage
I did not tie the young lady down to
marry such and such kind of person, with
in such and such period. Then, why m
I not entitled to seize upon the benefit
which others have devised for me?"
"AH this Is mere sophistry," answered
his wife. "It may satisfy you who bave
no time for thought, but It does not sat
isfy me, wbo sit brooding here tbe live
long day, with only my own dark
thoughts for companions. During the last
few days I have been depressed with a
gloom I cannot shake off. 1 feel aa
though something terrlM were about to
happen. What baa become of that wom
anMrs. Castleton?" she asked, sudden-
"She waa at the office yesterday, to
draw the last shilling of ber money."
"Ileware of tbat woman," ahe aald,
earnestly. "Hreak with her, If you can,
before she worka you mischief. I bave
never seen ber, and never wish to see her ;
tut from what I bave beard from your
l-ps, I can well understand tbe dangerous
woman ahe is. Let her go ber ways whll
you are safe; above all, do not provoke
her vlndlctlvenrss, for you can never tell
tbe lengths to which a woman's revenge
will carry her."
"Well, tbe Idiotic folly of some people
Is past all understanding," be broke out,
suddenly; "they are no more fit to be
trusted with money than Infants; Indeed,
I think It Is meritorious to take It away
from them before tbey do themselves a
mischief with It. Would you believe It?
That girl Constance, after refusing Ar
thur I'enrbyddyn, actually wrote, or caus
ed to be written, an anonymous letter to
him, saying tbat If all else failed, be could
obtain tbe money to pay off the mortgage
by applying to Groom and Fry, In lied
ford How."
"If tbat Is tbe case, you are powerless,"
said bis wife,
"Am I?" be exclaimed, snarling like a
dog. "Tbe letter is in my bands. Un
fortunately, young I'enrbyddyn has read
It. Hut whatever extremities I resort to,
tbat money shall not be forthcoming."
There waa Illness at I'enrbyddyn Cas
tle. Sir Launce, worn out, prostrated by
anxieties, lay upon a sick bed and baa
son bad been summoned to his side. Tbe
doctors aald that there waa no immedi
ate danger, but be must be kept quiet,
and bis mind at ease.
The night waa gathering In fast over
tbe gray October sky, and the wind whis
tled drearily through tbe large rooms and
corridors of tbe old castle, as Arthur
IVnrhyddyn sit nlone, unletting beside
his father's bed.
That strange, sudden dlapenrnnce of
Mrs. Castleton had been a terrible blow;
It Ind driven him nlmost Into it delirium:
for liner hud be felt how omnipotent waa
her Influence until now she seemed
lint to him forvrr. In titltt he sought
to trneo her; In nln he sought to ntvomit
for her disappearance. At limes, a
thought crossed his brain, too terrible to
dwell upon. Waa she one of thst rare,
and did she 'rr that her love might work
upon him only the fulfillment of a curse?
lie remembered the extraordinary emotion
she manifested during the recital. And
once or twice a yet wilder nnd more Im
probable Idea rose up amidst the phantas
magoria of his mind, excited by a fancied
resemblance that be traced In the pale, set
features framed by the blnrk hair. Such
thoughla must be a symptom of madness;
he thought the crave could not gtre back
Ita dead, and she lay burled In I'enrbyd
dyn churchyard.
These thoughts, for tbe hundredth
time, were pasting through his brain.
And brooding tints, there came Into his
mind the thought to go nnd look nt that
strange picture, which he had not seen
since the day on which old Daniel had
told him the legend. Casting a glance at
the sleeper, he crept out of the room. Hi
waa not aware of the removal of the
painting, but his way to trie western tur
ret lay through the picture gallery. And
upon entrrlng It, one of the first objects
his ryes fell upon was the portrait of
Klonore de Solssotvs.
It was a sudden shock to see that pale,
dark face looking out from among the
portraits of his ancestors. To his excited
fancy, there was a look of triumph In bis
eyes that seemed to say, "At last."
Most ominous to his fatalistic creed was
this circumstance. "For two hundred
yenrV he thought, "It has lain amongst
dust and rubbish, and now It Is brought
down ami fixed here In the position that
during all that time was Its right. What
can It portend, but the speedy destruction
of the race upon whom she put her male
diet Ion?"
He had no difficulty In guessing whose
hands bad placed the picture there; no
one but his father would have dared to
thus brave Fate.
And now he fell to scrutinising those
features. Although they had been graven
upon his boyish memory In unfading lines,
he tried to clear his mind of fancies, and
then to endeavor to discover how true
or how false was Ita supposed resemblance
to Mrs. Castleton. In expimslon, save
the last time he saw her, there was no
resemblance; there was a stern melan
choly upon the countenance of the por
trait, which found no counterpart upon
that of the living woman. Hut Its con
tour. Ita dark eyes and hair, were like
so like, that It called up the dear Imago
of his love with painful force.
"Oh, where art thou, my beloved?" he
exclaimed, passionately. "Why hast thou
fl.l frnm mn) Came back come back I
Thou art my fate, my destiny, whrther for
goal or evil, and I am thine: ami were
It the spirit of F.Ieonore de Solssons her
self, returned to this world of woe to
avenge ber wrongs, my love would b 'he
A long, lo- wsH'swept through the gal
lerr'ns be spoke those words. It was only
the wind, but to his over-excited Imagina
tion It sounded like the cry of a depart
ing spirit. He shuddered at the thought,
and walked softly baek to hla father's
room. Sir Launee was still sleeping, snd
tbe nurse, whose place he had supplied
for a short time, having returned, he was
relieved of his watch.
He felt oppressed and feverish, and
putting on his hat, went out Into the
open air. The cool, fresh breexe waa In
vigorating, and tbe damp, leafy smell
of the woods was grateful to him after
tbe close atmosphere of ths sick chamber.
.Scarcely heeding what direction he
took, he walked on, deep In thought, until
be approached the coast. Klght In front
of blm stood John Trevethlck's cottsge.
Tbe sight of this spot recalled to his
mlpd that he had not seen tbe old fisher
man for some years. He would look In
upon tlie old man; be would be sure to
find blm at home, as age prevented him
now from leaving hi cottage.
It waa now nearly dark; the last dim
twilight was fading fast out of the cold
gray sky, Tbe door of tbe cottage stood
wide open, but there was no light within,
nor any sign or sound of human life, II
stood upon the threshold, and called
"John Trevethlek V
There was no answer. Hut he beard a
slight rustle, as of a woman's dress, and
tbe aound of breathing. Again he called
"John Trevethlek, are you there?"
A low, terrified female voice answered,
"Who Is that?"
"It I I, Arthur I'enrbyddyn," be an
swered, quickly. "Wbo are your
A faint cry waa hi answer. He sprang
Into tbe but, saw a moving body before
blm, stretched out his arms, and the next
moment a woman'a bead was leaning up
on his breast, and b soft voice whisper
ing "Arthur."
Kven now he could not credit the evi
dence of his senses, it was so marvelous,
so beyond all belief. Yet she lay upon
his bosom, clinging around blm, tier
breath upon hla cheek. Ah I he saw It
all I She had repented of her flight she
bad followed him down to Cornwall, He
bore ber out Into the open air, that by
tbe dim Ugbt be might feast his eyes upon
ber face. There was still sufficient light
"Even now," be cried, fondly pressing
her to his heart, "I can scarcely believe
that it is you. I fear to loose you, lest
you should fly away from me like some
vision of the night. How came you here
was It to see me?"
"Yes," she murmured, after a pause;
"to seek you. What else should bring
me' to this remote country? Do not ques
tion me; do not ask for explanations lest
I should again fly from you."
A mist was rising from tb sea. Them
