he continued; "Mark met it Isn't the only

more serious than stretching rope cross

"And pray what charge Is that, Mr.
Hat?" I asked with pretended Indiffer
ence. iA criminal charge. We reserve It re
aped for Mr. Lynn Yeames feelings.
Here's the fact we can throw will Into
chancery, and ruin Dr. Awdrey, If we
make facts public. Lynn Yeamc does
not wish to tirocml; Air, eaiircs does.
J?o do I. To meet Ijnn" w.-die.s we will
abandon proceedings" once more he laid
lil !ubby finger on hi stubby note, "on
"Tell me straight out what you mean
by that." I said.
"I meanour side ahanJons procee.1
lng wrlttrn guarantee and all that siirt
of thing; you on your side pay over in
terest on money left In tru for Mist
Flexmore. Awdrey professes he has no
right to money glre It up to f.ynn, who
has. Loses nothing avoid scandal
saves reputation. There you are."
"Hare you anything more to add to
this proposition i" I asked.
"Nothing eicept this tay proceedings
for a week time for you to arrange with
Awdrey, and glre us decision. One week
'rora to-day you understand T"
"Perfectly well; there I no necessity
to keep you waiting a week for a decis
ion ; you shall hare It at once. On behalf
of my client and ratseJf, I refusa to bare
anything more to say to you. Ict me say
In conclusion, you pettifogging rascal,"
said I, rising and giving free rent to my
anger, "that If you could prore your crim
inal charge against DrAwdrey. I am the
last person In the world who would com
pound a felony, but (he first who would
take measures to punish the man who did.
Uet out of my house!"
He got up on bis little legs, gasping
and stammering, dropped bis gloves out
of his bat, got purple In the face in
picking them up, gasped and stammered
again; but quickly made bit way through
the open door with his small blue eyes In
the- corner, for all the world like a pig
bolting past a drlrer. Mrs. Yeames de
scription of me or her son's, for I had
no faith In his standing out. bad evi
dently been not nattering, and he bad
thought to find in me a shuffling scoun
drel of bis own stamp.
.This event gave me no little anxiety
at first, but It wore off when I came to
comrldrr It calmly. I could not believe
In the man's statement respecting a crim
inal charge In reserve. It was not likely
be would keep bark the stronger Induce
ment In leading to a oomprom.e. As for
bis witness to prove that Awdrey had
been Instrumental to my delay, that was
nothing; he could get s many witness
of that kind as be chow at a pound a
head. No; It seenied to me nothing but
a mere attempt at extortion, got up,
probably, by Yeames, his mother and
Ilaz, who thought, very likely, that I
should be rascal euougb to stand In with
I Mattered myself that I bad shown
llax the folly of his "proceedings," and
that I should neither se nor hear any
mere of him or bis criminal charges. And
this belief was strengthened when two
days later Lynn Yeames appeared In
Coneyford, and bis mother returned to her
He Hcnt the very morning of his ar
rival to Dr. Awdrey, and In the after
noon I snw them going along the High
Btreet together, I,ynn with his arm linked
hi Awdrej's. Tbey were going towards
the farm to see about some alterations
and Improvements that had occurred to
the doctor in the other's absence. I fert
sure then lliat the Intimidation scheme
Nothing occurred for several days; but
n Friday, the 'JOth of March, Miss Dal
rymple called upon roe. Kbe was as pale
as a ghost. Her band trembled In mine.
"Oh, Mr. Keene I" she exclaimed, "what
Js the meaning of these rumors'"
"Sit down, my dear," said I, guessing
what she meant. "Hit down ; now tell me
what It U you have heard."
"They nay that Dr. Awdrey prevented
you from arriving at the house In time for
Mr. Flexaiore to slgu bis will. A man
has confessed to being employed by him."
"I bare beard nothing about that. Have
you beard anything else?"
"Oh. yes, yes I They say that the med
icine be gave me to admluister to Mr.
KJexmore was" she hesitated a moment,
and dropping her voice no that It was
scarcely audible, said "poisoned J"
I started. This, then, was the criminal
charge liaz bad hinted at.
"Who told you this?" I asked, when I
bad overcome the first dash of aatonlsh
went. "Mrs. Case-by atme to tell me. She
thought that I ought to know."
"I know what Is In your mind," said
I, "You do not wish Awdrey to know I
what jou hare toM me. He under no
pprrhenslon: n lawyer knows how to
-cop a secret when It suits him. Leave
he matter In my hand, and by to-morrow
turning you shall hate news of some
lnd good news, t feel pretty sure."
I lo.t no time In seeing Dr. Awdrey:
on my way to his house 1 settled how to
"Well, Awdrey," Mid I when we met,
"how Is the world us tig you?"
"Pretty tnueh the same as usual only
more so," he s-Ud with a laugh: and then
'n a tone of perplexity he continued : "I
mn't quite make It out. I hare received
three letters to-dty asking for my ac
oiint, and all three have employed me
only about a month. I suppose It's a po
lite way of telling me that I am, not want
ed any more."
"That's It," said I, "and the reason Is
that you are accused of throwing me out
of a g g. and poltonlng pojr old Flex
more." "What!" he exclaimed, knitting his
brows In astonishment.
"It's a fact. The rumor Is circulating.
You'll lime none but your pauper to
doctor at the end of the week."
"I'm glad of It." sild he, "if the rest
will l!ten to such nonsense as that."
"We shall have to take measures to
disprove the 'Jiarge, doctor," said I.
"Then don't lose any time 'about It,"
said he. "Poor Nurse ('ertrudel" he add
ed tenderly, thlnktng doubtless of the af
front he had received being offered to
her. Then In a lone of vexation be ask
ed, "How long have you known this.
"Well, I heard something about It more
than a week ago."
"Why didn't you tell me at once 7"
"Ilecause I thought It merely a scheme
to extort money. A man named Itax
spoke about It. He tells mt he Is a friend
of the Yeames family."
He went off at once to find I.ynn. And
not long afterwards I caught sight of the
pair in the High street. Lynn with his
arm linked through the doctor's, and a
look on his face that seemed to bldpeo
ple observe that he still believed In Aw
drey's Innocence. While I was looking
after them, a colleague clapped me on the
shoulder, and sa.d in a low voice, nod
ding toward the two:
"Which Is the Judasr
."There ran be no doubt about that,"
I replied, "unless Judas be too good a
name for I.ynn Yeames."
"I am not so sure about that. Keene.
I dou't like Awdrey's quiet, long-suffering,
martyrtib manner. He's a clever man
ten times cleverer than Yeames clever
enough to make a big venture. If I had
to Judge without evidence, I should ac
quit Yetmra and hang Awdrey. And I
beliete If you could only clear your mind
of prejudice "
I would not wait to bear more of such
fustian. I hid no patience. In due
course I made a formal application for
the post-mortem examination of Flex
more's remains. To my astontshmrnt I
learned that the Inquiry had been already
demanded and accorded . the examination
was to be made at once.
"I.ynn assures me, and I believe him,"
said Dr. Awdrey when we next met, "that
he has .ceu oppo-ted to his mother's ac
tion from the ery tx-g.tinlng. He could
not with any delicacy tell me of her pro
ceedings. He himself Insisted on llax
quitting his mother's bouse."
The examination resulted In this:
Whether accidentally or otherwise,
enough of a noxious substance had found
,ts way Into Flexmore's body to have de
cidedly accelerated his death. The news
spread like plague; within twenty-four
hours every one had It, man, woman and
child, without distinction of rank or sta
tion. Ktery one went about open-mouthed
to find someone to give the uewa to. A
dozen persons wild to ihV :
"Have you beard the result of the ex
amination? Dr. Awdrey did hasten Flex
"Then why Is he at large?" I asked.
"Why bas no Marram for b.s arrest been
Tbey could only shrug their shoulders;
but I could explain the matter to them
Flexmore had nut been affected by tbe
poison at all. The arseulc was found in
bis mouth, It bad not touched the diges
tive apparatus, and for this reason: It
had been administered after the life had
left his body. This was the report made
by the autburlxed doctors who made the
Upon this report no one could be ac
cused of any crime legally, nor at the
present Juncture could a charge be Insti
lled. 'J list tbe poison had nut been
given In tbe form of a potion, such as
Miss Dalrymple had been charged by Dr.
Awdrey to administer, was clear from the
fact that It was found In the' form of a
powdtr, and must have been dropped in
my oid friend's mouth wben ids Jaw drop
ped after death. Htlll, it bad clearly been
given with a view to prevent any possi
bility of a return to life and It was equal
ly evident to the majority of people that
Awdrey, who knew the contents o( the
will to be signed, alone was prcsmn iblr
desirous of preventing a return to life,
for only a very small minority knew that
Lynn Yeames also had a strong reason for
making death sure at that time.
Now, though there was no evidence to
commit Awdrey, circumstances were suffi
ciently suspicious to enable the Yeames
party to contest the will. Hut I had (till
'renter reasons than that for getting at
the tru'h of the mutter, and IWliu Ui
wilt on the guilty, liven the (import

I went to work nt once, nnd determined
