those four words, so simple, and yet con

edge of the poor lady.
First of all she could trace amazement
and Incredulity upon the face of he
widow, but this quickly gave way to oth
er feelings as her mind began to compre
hend the true state of affairs.
Then a cry broke from her lips, a cry
o full of delirious joy that it pierced
Carol's heart, and she realized then what
wss the relntionshln between them.
"My child! my child! Oh, how could toi ana nrea. out ner aim was rcuuereo

Carol, seeking your pity, your love. Will
you come to me, or have you learned to
hate the mother that bore yon? Speak
to me, my child; my heart tremb'es in an
ticipation. Heaven help me."
There was not the least hesitation.
With a low, exultaut cry of "My moth
er," Carol sprang forward and clasped
htr arms about the neck of the widow.
Ths strange feelings she had experienc
ed at sight of Mrs. Randall were all ex
plained now, and could be accounted for
on wry natural grounds.
They embraced with all the fervor of
those who loved, though they had been
parted so long that it was as it Carol
had never seen her mother.
Then tbey sat down to talk, first of
the strange chain of fate that had led
to this meeting, and then of the past.
Carol hoard her mother's story as told

found no blame could be attached to her.

jealousy there could not be the least

agreeable as it might have been. For
merly she had loved him, and been Bet
ted by him as one would expect an only
child to be, but all had changed on that
day when he found her seated by the side
of Roger Darrel in the forest.
He had then shown what an ungovern
able temper he possessed, and this had
not improved since. Then had come his
strange coudnct in relation to her mar
riage with Captain Grant, who also had

sympathy was wholly with her mother,

had come almost before they were aware
of it. They were still talking about the
past and present, and even the future,
when they were astonished by a knock at

conjecture nothing else than that pursuit

groom and some of the wedding guests,
and that they had finally come to the
very place where the missing bride had
been hidden away.
The elder lady proved herself fully
equal to the emergency. She sprang up
and hastily placed a large crock over the
candle. Then Carol felt herself hurried
into a closet.
A minute later she heard the widow
boldly open the front door. Before doing
go the lady had armed herself with a
pistol, for she knew not what desperate
need there might be.
The moon had arisen since the time of
their arrival at the mill, being in its last
quarter, and it was easy to see the figure
of a voting man standing outside.
"Well, sir, what is it you wish?" de
manded the widow, with some severity,
and at the same time managing to show
the weapon with which she was armed,
without appearing to do so intentionally.
The other seemed in no wise abashed,
and but for the fact that the moon -vas
at his back she might have seen the smile
upon his face, as though he readily rec
ognized the little device so extremely
"I seek Carol Richmond, but do not

who I am or what 1 know, but your
mother was once a bosom friend of mine.

"That matters not at present. I knew

hounds from the asylum on my track
again, and at any minute they may spring
upon me. Then It would be too late, and
she must suffer."
There was wild entreaty In the tones
of the girl, and, although the reference
to the asylum had startled the lady for
a moment, she believed the ether to bo
sincere, and turning, took several steps
toward the closet in which Carol had

might be expected from the business they
carried on. They knew that the person
against whom they were pitted was lnt
a weak woman, yet their orders bad not
been of a merciful nature, and in the
bushes ncr.r by stood a gaunt figure clad
in a lonj? cloak and slouched hat the

had received no orders in that :ine.
When, therefore, Nora Warner strug
gled in their fierce grasp, as though she
woul I break away, the men used violent
measures. One of them clutched her del
icate tin oat in a fiendish manner. Her
hilt had come off, and the long ringlets,
which bad been suffered to remain on her
head during her long confinement in 'he
asylum, blew about in the night breeze.
"Carol, where is Carol?" she huskily
cried; "Innust see her before thev take
me away see her and tell her."
"Shut up!" cried one of the keepers.
A form clad in white came bounding
out of the mill door.
"1 am here, Nora Warner. What would
you say to me?" she asked, eagerly.
"I came to see you to tell you that it
was all -that he Roger Dar good- find
out. Help me I am choking dying!"
"In the name of heaven take your hand
from her throat, you wretch. Don't you
See jou are killing her? Help! help!" and
in her excitement Carol sprang at the
keeper, seeking to release the one whom
he was choking into insensibility.
"Keep back!" he roared, thrusting her
aside, "and thank your lucky star it
ain't you we've come after."
By this time Nora Warner had com
pletely lost her senses, and lay like a
log in the arms of the keeper.
Both Carol and her mother were too
much horrified to say a word more. Doc
tor Grim now advanced.
He was one of your smooth-tongued
villains a scoundrel of the first water
and yet he was always pretending to be
so tender hearted that he often deceived
those who did not know him.
It was second nature with him, and,
while torturing the poor souls committed
to his fiendish cat-e, he was wont to apolo
gise to them because the red-hot iron was
so cold, the end of the lash worn off a
trifle, the thumb screws aged, and all
such cold-blooded attempts at ferocious

"My men have generally to deal with
such desperate madmen that they dare
not give one-half a chance for fear of
their lives. They know, also, that this
woman is a desperate character. Per
haps they have gone a little too far, but
better that than that she should have
been struck upon the head, which is the
way we often have to deal with them."
"But Nora Warner is not mad. By
what right do you .drag her away from
here?" demanded Carol, recovering her
voice when she found she had at least a
polished scoundrel to deal with,
"You are no judge of that. Miss.
Learned men have so decided. These
insane creatures could deceive anybody.
They have deceived me for fully three
weeks at a time, v but jn the fourth, at
the full of the moon, they proved them
selves as mad as March hares. I would
stake something that this one now has

long rigmarole about a cruel husband.

t' the window.
There they could plainly see a man
walking rapidly away from the mill.
What had he been doing there? Once he
turned and looked back, but they had
no light in the room, and, besides, his
attention gecuvd directed toward the
main part of the old mill,
Carol recoguized Captain Grant, and,
her heart beat rapidly as she wondered
whether he sought her.
Whatever mysterious errand brought
the duelist captain to the mill at that
strange hour, he had no Idea how close,
he had been to his missing bride,
Lawrence Richmond was thunder
struck when he saw Captain Grant walk
Into the room alone.

his belief to the others, he would have
sworn that the soldier duelist would come

foreign detective if such the stranger
was of the mistake he had made were
but empty braggadocio, and that In re'
ality he was In the power of a man who
had hunted long for him, and would not
be apt to have the wool pulled over his
eyes by his game.
Fancy the old man's consternation and
amazement, therefore, when, after the
lapse of a short time, the adventurer
coolly stepped through the opt a window
leading out upon the veranda.
There was a look upon his face that
none of them could fathom, for It seemed
to be a mixture oi triumph, cunning and
"You see I convinced the fool he had
made a big mistake, as I told you I
would, and he has gone on to Richmond.
Some one misled him, but it is all right
now," said the Captain.
Lawrence Richmond noticed several
things that excited bis curiosity. Iu the
first place the Captain was whiter than
he had ever seen him before, and seem
ed to be trembling somewhat. Then again
he had a handkerchief bound around bis
left hand, and it seemed to have been
bleeding too much for him to have
scratched it on a thorn iu passing.
The Captain did not seem disposed to
renew his assault upon the old man. In

to have quieted his spirits iu a wonderful
manner, and he was even ready to believe
the story of Lawrence Richmond in re

had been the one who had committed
this daring abduction.
The news seemed to affect the Captain,
for apparently he hated Roger with an
intensity such as is given by the tiger
for its prey or its foe, but he did not re

The affuble doctor lifted his hat to the
