I BY MISADVENTURE

cnArrnii viil fContinued.)
I pot to the paling by the park, and
kept thorn la touch until at length I
reached the carriage drive rate of Flex
more's house. Hy this time, what with
one accident and Another, It must have
been pretty nearly four o'clock. There
were lights In the house, Hefore the door
stood Iynn YeameV mare, Flexmore's
gardener holding her head.
"Afternoon. Mr," said he In an under
tone that spoke of calamity. There was
foreboding silence, also, on tha pt of
tie maid-servant aa she opened the sit
ting room door.
MIm Itlrymple was on her knee be
fore a big chair drawn near the fire. In
which little Laure eat, her face burled
In her hands. They were not aware of
my presence. I left them, closing the
door behind me in silence.
"Where la Mr. Yeames?" I asked of the
ma d who waited in the hall.
"rpstalrs In master's room, sir," she
Yenmet was standing by his uncle's bed
aide, he thrust his hands quickly In his
pockets as the door opened and I entered.
No one else was there. I weut In silence
to the bed and looked down. Flexmore's
yes were cloned, but his Jaw had drop
ped. "You're a bit too late with that will."
nid Yeanie. in a tone and with an ex
pression on his face that Implied a rood
deal a tone of subdued Jocularity, a cun
ning leer that bade me understand he
knew why I hadn't come earlier. "Why,
what have, you been doing?" he aaked
with surprise, "You'rs a sight to be
"How long has he been goner I aaked.
Indifferent to my appearance.
"Oh, not above a quarter of an hour.
Gertrude's Just gone down. She did all
that was possible to restore vitality. Hut
K'a all over this time. lie won't com
back any more, as the aqng says."
"Ilave you sent any one for Dr. Aw
drey? lie ought to be here."
"Of course he ought, but I suppose he'a
got some interesting pauper to look after.
I went for him myself. The old boy
waa shocking bad when I arrived here
after leaving you. I went over to Aw
drey at once, but he was out; come back,
nnd by that time nunky was pretty near
"Waa he In a state of consciousness at
that time or not!"
"Well, he waa conscious enough to ask
for you, and wonder why you hadn't
It occurred to m that Lynn Yeames,
seeing his uncle's precarious condition,
had himself stretched that cord for me
instead of going for Dr. Awdrey, in order
to prevent ray arriving In time to get
Flexmore's signature to the will.
"Do you know why I did not turn up,
as you rail It?" I asked sharply.
"Not I; but you're not sorry, I sup
pone, that you did not get here In time."
It was on the tip of my tongue to re
tort, "Not so sorry a you may have rea
on to be, Mr. Yeames;" but I said noth
ing, for I wished to see how far this
young nun's fatuity would carry him, and
contented myself with thinking of the
bitter punishment In store for him when
be should find out bow completely he bad
deceived himself. Certainly no self-deception
could be more complete than his.
Assured of my venality, led away by his
own hope and over-confidence In the suc
cessful Issue of bis cunning, be apparent
ly felt as sure of being possessed of bis
uncle's fortune as though the thousands
er already In his hands.
There are some men who hare so Uttle
self-respect that tbey do not keep up a
decent pretence of virtue when the object
Is achieved for which It was first assumed,
nd Lynn Yeames was one of these. lie
already took upon himself the aire of mas
ter In that bouse, and with a grand pat
ronage bade me come down and have
some refreshment. I complied, for after
the shaking I bad received I was In no
mood to refuse.
We went Into the sitting room. Laura
was lying on the couch holding the band
of Miss Dalrymple, who sat on a stool
by ber aide.
"Oh, baven't you got all that over
yet?" Lynn asked petulantly, glancing at
them. "Sit down, Keene." He touched
the bell. "It'a absurd nonsense to en
courage morbid feeling and mawkish sen
timent about a thing that's been fore
seen for neeks an Inevitable thing
A little refreshment for Mr. Keene." The
latter addressed to the servant who came
to the door. "I say It's nonsense t"
"Lynn!" said Miss Dalrymple, In a
tons of nagled surpr.se, regret and re
monstrance. "I say It's nonsense," . he repeated
handily, "and jou ought to know It, Ger
trude, with our experience; the child has
been petted dud pampered till she's un
healthy. It's exactly what my mother
lias maintained all along. However, I
shall alter all that the girl will be. pack
ed off to a good, wholesome boarding
school a soon as the funeral Is over."
Miss Dalrymple looked perfectly amaz
ed by this extraordinary outburst; she
could not understand the meaning of It.
I could well enough, Mr. Yeames had
already thought better of his proposal to
make the penniless Miss Dalrymple a
partaker In bis fortune, and did not care
bow soon there should be a breach bo
twa thss. It was this rather than any
sudden lit of dislike to Iiure which had
led him t make this savage onslatuht.
Iaure clung closer than ever to her
only friend, and looked In terror at Lynn.
Miss Dalryrople held her hand ttnuly. Ths
servant bruught In the tray and I helpl
myself. I.ynn wnlted till the servant
was gone, and then, going to the win
dow, mid ;
"I shall go over and fetch Awdrey.
The certificate must be seen about at
once. (?o and get my hat from the li
brary, taure. The child sprang up and
sped front the room to fetch the bully's
hat: Mls Dalrymple stood with heaving
and close-pred lips, and not a particle
of color In her face. She could not speak
Lynn met her culm gase with bent
brows, and turned again to the window,
(licking hi handkerchief from his side
pocket In a manner which by Itself waa
Insolent and offensive.
Hut In doing this he flicked a little
pellet of psper out. It fell agalrwt my
toe, and I qukkly covered It with my
foot. The next moment he thrust his
hand shandy In the pocket from which
he had tlU-ked out this pellet, then shook
his handkerchief and look! about the
floor at his feet.
"What dreadful weather, Miss Dalrym
ple." said I, setting down my glass.
Lynn Yeames went hastily from the
room, snatching his bs.t out of Iure's
hand as he passed. I picked up the pellet
of paper and slipped It Into my waistcoat
"Oh. la this true, dear Is It truer
cried little Laure under her breAth, as
she Joined Miss Dalrymple. "Will he
send me away from you? Will he part
"No, my child," said T, going up to
them. "Take this assurance from an old
man who lovm you for your father's sake,
and Nurse Gertrude for her own yoo
shall not be parted.
I left them. As I passed through the
hall I caught sight of Lynn Yeames on
the landing above with a lighted candle,
looking about for the pellet of paper I
was carrying away In my pocket
I have In my office what I call my
"handy drawer" a good large drawer
that slides easily and fastrns with a
patent key, and divided Into a score of
compartments. In this I put away any
thing that I think may come In bandy
at some future time, and an alphabetical
Index on a side of paper tells me at a
glance In which nest to find what I want.
I recommend a drawer of this kind to
any one of a practical and methallcnl
turn of mind: he will have recourse to
It more frequently than be anticipates,
and find It occasionally of Inestimable
Well. Into this drawer, Nest Y, I put
that pellet of paper after making a care
ful examination of K, ami indexed It
thus: "Yeames. Pellet of paper Jerked
out of his pocket, day of Flexmore's
death. Dec. 18. 18SS ." I shall have
more to tell about this later oh a good
In the evening of that day I saw Dr.
Awdrey; he came to me with face as
lonz as a fiddle.
That's an unfortunate accident that
happened to you this afternoon," be said.
"It might have been worse," said I,
feeling my noe. "I came plump down
on It. Wonder I didn't break It."
"I'm not spealring of that," said he, put
ting down his hat and seating himself.
"Ob, you're thinking of your prop
erty." The poor old nag had put bis
shoulder out and bad to be killed, and
both shafts of the gig were smashed.
"Well, It your old borse had not been
thrown down, you would have been thou
sands out of pocket."
"You know wbat I mean; It ! an un
fortunate accident that prevented your
arrirlng In time for Flexmore to sign tha
new will aa be wished."
There we differ. I do not regard the
accident aa unfortunate from that point
"Well, what Is to be done about It? The
old will Is virtually revoked."
"Hut actually It stands as good as aver
It was, and so it shall stand."
"Supposing I refuse to accept the
guardianship of Flexmore's child?"
"You can't refuse. Common sense will
not let you; humanity will not let you;
I will not let you. Have you seer, Lynn
Yeames since bis uncle's death?"
"No; he bad left the bouse five minutes
before I arrived. I bear he called at
my bouse, but I came by the other road.
Since then I have been unable to find hhn
That's a pity. I should have liked
you to see him as I saw b!m. He is so
confident of being bis uncle's heir that
be has thrown off all restraint, every pre
tense of decency, and shows himself the
hectoring bully, the heartless rascal I
have always believed him to be."
"Impossible!" he exclaimed, looking In
credulously at me, whom alone of all men
be doubted and looked upon as misguid
ed by prejudice.
"I tell you It's a fact. He was brutal
to little Laure, and lie Insulted Miss Dal
rymple before my face. Why? Iiecause,
pow that be believes himself master of
his uncle's fortune, he wishes to break off
bis engagement with ber. He lias no
more Intention of marrying ber now than
be bad ths first day' ba came) to Coney-ford."
"I can't understand you man to
clear In Judgment on most things - "
"(let that nonsense out of your head,
doctor. I tell you that I nut ii mora
prejudiced agalnt him than 1 am In
favor of you. lie Is a wlfUh, hearties
"You will never make me believe that
of Ljnn Yeames."
"He shall make you believe It of him
self. Abstain from toying him know how
Flexmore's money Is to ls dlspoisod of,
and watch him between now and the read
tng of the will. He already talks of send
ing the child away to a boarding school,
and, as t tell )oil, reproved Miss lVil
rymple before me for being too sympa
thetic and kind to her."
"Hut why should he believe himself to
be his uncle's heir?"
"Hecnuse he fell Into trap, and was
led to believe so by nc And I'll tsll you
something else, doctor. He believed that
this new wilt was to revoke nn existing
will In his favor; ami I am convinced
that he stretched the cord that threw the
fit over and ddajed me, that thla will
might not be signed: and nicely be lias
defeated his own ends by It. I'd forgive
him for that If my none had been broken."
"I think I can upeet that theory, at
least," said Awdrey. "Wlrat time was It
when you were thrown from the gig?"
"About two o'clock, as nearly as I can
reckon," mIiI I.
"Good. He left Flexmore's house to
fetch me at one o'clock: he was at my
house at half-past, and he waited there
for me until ten minutes past two."
He had proved an alibi fur Lynn, and
I bad to admit I must be lu the wron
on this point. ,
"And so you are. I am sure, on other
points reelecting him," said the doctor.
"We shall see that. Keep your mind
unprejudiced, and watch that young man
during the next four or live days," said
I, as I opened the door to let 1dm out
Unfortunately, this chance of clearing
his mind was denied to tit. The next
mornlug, when I called at Flexmore
House. I heard that he had not been seen
since he left, shortly after my departure,
to fetch Dr. Awdrey: and In the course
of the day I learned that he had gone to
London. This did not surprise me. "He's
gone to see n tondon solicitor about this
affair," I thought; "and may be bled
pretty freely by my learned f rlends t"
Hetlmes on Thursday I called xla
at the house, for I had made up my mind
to visit the inmates there every day,
knowing how long and dreary the dajs
must be for them In the darkened house,
and that the child, at least, looked upon
me as a protecting friend. Miss Dalrym
ple was bending over her work with a
worn and anxious look upon her sweet
face. Little I,aure started up with a
terrified expression In her eyes, as though
she expected to see Lynn Yeames with a
rope In his hand to haul her off to board
ing school, as I opened the sitting room
door. Hoth of their jr faces lit up
with pleasure when I said:
"Its only I the old lawyer come to
bother you for some papers."
Laure ran up. threw her arms around
my neck, and kissed me; and, still bug
ging me, she whispered:
"You don't forget what you promised?"
"No," I whispered back. "o one shall
take you awny from Nurse Gertrude."
"You are a nice old dear!" she said,
giving me another kiss; and then she ran
sway laughing, to whisper to Miss Dal
rymple all about her secret t once a
woman and a child.
I gossiped for the bent part of an hour,
raking up all the news of the village, for
there's nothing like trifling chat for peo
ple In trouble; and then, when Mure
went out of the room, I said:
"Well, my dear, have you had many
visitors since I saw you last?"
"A few acquaintances and Dr. Awdrey
that Is all.
"Have you seen him or beard anything
about Mr. Yeames?" I asked,
"No: he bas not come back from Lon
don. I am anxious about hlra. I fear
he Is III'."
It seemed to me that If he were III, the
first thing he would do, being a selfish
brute, would be to write and tell his
sweetheart of hi suffering. The moment
a man of this kind feels not up to the
bullying point, bo whines for sympathy, I
considered It much more probable that
Lynn had gone to Indon to spend some
of his fortune In advance, and escape from
the lugubrious condition of things at borne
whilst bis uncle lay dead at Flexmore
Hou. Of course, I kept this belief to
myself; and. promising to drop In again
during the day, I left the house, and went
directly to Mrs. Yeames villa.
