his Thanks giving dinner hatched from this egg About this time there was a famous remedy known as Coyles Salve being extesevely used hereabouts and Fonsie had a box in his possession He used a portion ot the salve in makinsr the artificial shell where it had been broken and set the eggs What was his supeise on going to his chicke house four weeks later to find twelve lively young turkeys The doctored egg as well as the rest had hatched They seemed to be exceptionally healthy and one looked to be stronger than the rest and this one Mr Smith thinks was hatched from the before mentioned egg

S CHAPTER L D T wisiin August of the year 188 that I turned the corner as it 11ammarches Lad been entirely unknown to me until at a point In an Idle tour of the west of England I ill upon the little town of ltayutoudand brought up at 7 in the evening at the Swan hostelry that occupies a corner of the irreg ular triangle constituting the market place The country In that part is full of swelling hills and valleys soft and exhilarating of air and argreat vesture of wood The great Gwent as the forest across the little river11ay Is called in the countryside rolls estward across the county broken by tracts of fertile fields lying under grain and pasture and descends upon the black hills of the mining dis trict beyond At Raymond which stands upon the hither side of the river we are yet In England proper and upon the margin of amore open country The town itself Is small and neat and wears its air of respectable antiquity very haughtily The Inn which was itself among tine most venerable buIldingTMu the small town was comfortably served by very brisk landlord of middle age It had kept so to speak a precarious continuity with antiquity and in the main scheme had changed but little during the 300 ypars which had passed since its erection The hostelry wits much too large for its present uses but for all that wore no air of neglect in the Inhabited chum bers My own rooms were marked by homely comfort and I was waited upon like a prince of the blo After a rude and wholesome country dinner I sought distraction in the taproom with my pipe and a heterogeneous company of townsfolk The landlord was in some kind a president tit this symposium which consisted for the main part Gt a few of the smaller shopkeepers There was Mr Jones for example whose name I had noticed upon a shop front as I rode through the High street This man fixed upon me earl in the evening and poured his confidences Into my ear He was a hay merchant and he had no dearer ambition than to establish his business in Bristol Ho found Raymond too mean for his as piring temper and the Mecca of his prayers was Bristol 1 confess that I found him something of a bore and was glad to exchange commonplaces with my other neighbor The landlord himself kept his seat before tide long table smoking his long pipe with the peace of a man whose business is end for the day und now and then dis led ug a glance in my direction He I discovered a traveled man for parts and had the reputation of In smart fellow Indeed he compared with the duller rustics ftyho sur tnlIently there came a great noise fol lowed by a heavy tramp of feet zip preaching from the outer bar and in strutted a tall young fellow with his alrotloneCome in says the Innkeeper very friendly but with a certain nlr9t constraint Plenty of room Mr Montgomery sir and a good evening to you Oh hang your ceremonies says the newcomer but with no touch of ill humor and giVe your best attention to no order Wemtyver And clap ping his hat more firmly on his head he rapped loudly upon the table lie drunk the glass of whisky which the barman served and then fell Into a Come in arun the innkeeper seat and stared Without any trucu leuce but rather with a savage air of curiosity at myself lie was of a ruddy color and quite young and something In his bearing rather than in his dress marked him out from the rest of the company But above all tits great size and muscular appearance were noticeable Who is that I asked as soon as Montgomerys eyes had wandered from me Hes no better than he should be mj neighbor answered For nil his grand airs lies but little better than a auger And thats where your blood co nes to In the end The landlord who was close by me noting my interrogation with a busy eye leaned forward and supplemented this disparaging Information in a wills per One of the best families in the- went sir he murmured though his estate is no more than a yeomans now adays Times are against property on the border And having delivered this statement be drew himself back and addressed a question to Montgom the object as conceived of ChlbiUn a local celebrity to his guest i 1 IAnrthlng doing out your way sirihe inquired Time youth turned his eyes upon him In a lackluster gaze and then empty ing his glass hammered on the table noisily r Why the deuce dont that man of yours comet he exclaimed Here have 1 ridden in ten miles for tl1e sight of a human face and the taste ot good Scotch and Thats right lie gave his order and observing Wendover again gave vent to a heavy laugh What do you expect to happen In the Gwent he asIedlilts as dull as tutch water I dont know so much about that put In suddenly a man on the other side of the room whom from his gen eral air I took to be a miller Theres something as I heard of lately that was pretty exciting The spokesman drew all eyes upon him The surface pf our deep composure stirred and ruffled Whats that Mr UTewellyn asked jMontgomery d Incredulous Pooh he said disdainfully The miller enjoyed the importance and seemed inclined to prolong It He leisurely refilled his pipe I heard something queer happened atT the castle last week he said at last seeing that his news must out Whats that asked Montgomery A girl that was in service there told my missus went on the miller We have taken her in Shes left the cas tie 4 What did she say t asked Wen dOer I dont exactly recall the right of it the miller confessed with a hasty sense of shame Montgomery looked at me and seeinga smile in my eye burst out laughing But I know it was about a burglary said the miller couragei burglary said someone The man that keeps the inn there the whatfs that inn went on the mill er The Woodman answered Montgomery toICaught whom said Montgomery impatientlyWell didnt catch them admit ted the miller but he frightened them off They were after the plate that the old gentleman keeps so the man told my girl Iles a queer old customer inter posed one of the company seeing as we all saw that we should get no further Interest out of the miller Our attention broke up Youre right nodded his vIsa vis and replaced bisrpipe in his math May I ask what castle you are speaking on I ventured to suyad dressing the millec Ivor castle sir said he civilly Jltluys in the Gwent sir back of the hills explained the landlord As you talk of this burglary said Montgomery breaking in rather rudely Id like first to knpw what they were going to find in the castle Every oup knows theres nothing to be got there Confronted with this uncivil infidel the miller came to bay I dont know anything about it he declared All know is that this young woman she says she was woke up by a woke going on and then she rent to sleep again putting her head under the blankets bringIdrunk too much to be an easy companion T dont call that much of title If looking mnnIWho the devil asked your opinionI retorted the lad brusquely The mild man shifted In his chair but mustered conrirge to ask If a man might nut express his sentiments upon a point of general Interest Thats true anyway assentedI Montgomery with a foolish laughiIt was clear that he hud taken enough to he quarrelsome if the should rise and unfortunately IJOrtunltyI to turn his bantering gaze sour and peevish neighbor Well Mr Jones said he and hows hay- Hows crops my young gentleman says Jones In his surly fashion Crops said Montgomery in a bawl crops Is as they should be season able Heres to crops gentleman and also to hUJand he fell Into his chair laughing abominably I could not say Iti his was part of an elaborate Jest conceived by a maudlin brain or whether he had really been taken with an unreasonable fit of anger but whether of accident or of purpose he tilled up his glass forward between his fingers and the dregs flew out and spattered the hay merchants face Gentlemen cried the landlord In some alarm Montgomery stood his red face some what vacant and grinning broadly while his sallow faced victim who had got upon his feet gesticulated and stut tered under his nose with a show of passion that was not quite English and at this moment when it seemed as if some retaliation was to be ex pected and a fracas precipitated an Impulse took me and I myself inter vened X think sir said 1 addressing Montgomery you will admit thtit you have used this worthy geutlemauj very ill and if I were you sir youth and Spirit at my ask his pardon at once WitiJourOn that he stared at mat for onds and then plumping glass on the table he sheepish laugh All right he said very sorry 1 beg hla pardon and muttering some indistinct apologies he resumed hi seat sitting somewhat silent for a good tlmearterwarlLiBut that was my introduction to the lad an introduction none too favourable of which he began at once to make use torhpcrept close to fine moving from chair to chair when a chance nerved him and being emboldened by the liquor be had drunk struck up a lively conversation with We In the end he was exceedingly merry and was shaking me heartily by the hand and invited me to drive out to his farm in the Gwent with a good deal of unusual warmth and vehemence but I managed at last to make my escape and that without giving him offense It was yet early but the taproom had lost its humors for me and I was for bed In my room I spent an agree able hour Idly considering my guidebooks and determining a date for my return to town Upon the map I made out the site of Ivor castle of whI h there had been talk also of Mont gomerys farm which he had described to me They both lay In the Gwent as that great reach of forest in the marches is called CHAPTER II INLi AIN had fallen In the night and a sweet javor of earth commingled rith the summer air when I opened my door and looked forth upon the courtyard The landlord gently deprecated the Events of the previous evening offering as it might be to a fastidious guest an apology for a headstrong young scapegrace Theyre not like us of the eastern counties sir says he Theyre a bit Welsh hereabout Its a contamina tion to my way of there all sorts of blood go toni3ke a lnation and thats the truth But he volunteered a few additional particulars about Montgomery IXot a bad sort sir at heart but to seed here Hes taken spyInothing and Llanthony is a shabby house for a young gentleman as he should be- Llanthony Jt appears was the name of Montgomerys paternal estate In the Gwent And In fact it was for this morningItracted me with some force I had an appetite for the wilderness of that back byI way virgin at the least a property private from the world As i struck across the Ray and directed my horse toward the long red slope of the as cent I looked back upon the little town and discovered it wrapped In moun tainhumors Llanthony according to my host lay at the back of the first hill some four miles from Raymond but as the estate was not my particular aim and if it bad been I hid noone to guide me I roamed indefinitely through byways over a circuit of the upper Gwent antI Ifinally drew up in the village of Llanel lan about the hour of lunch This vii loge lay a mile or so from the more open districts of the Gwent and within the privy borders of the great forest Itself It would have been easy to throw the reins upon the horses neck and to wander lost in the abysms of that wil deniess for the villages were scattered at a great distance and the habitations of the settlerS were at long intervals It Was somewhere about 5 in the after noon and as I rode down Into a spa clans valley a few miles from Llanel lane that the monotony of this desultory journey was broken by an event off some moment A pretty brook rippled through the wood and was crossed upon a rude bridge As it chanced my horse fell suddenly lame and I had dismounted Son the farther edge of the stream to examine his hoof when I heard sounds as of a struggle In the close brake to my left and upon that a shrill shout as of one crying for assistance Leaving the bay without further ado for he was of mljd mettle I jumped Into the copse and ran toward the noises shouting as I went to encourage the wayfarer who was calling for aid The cries had already ceased but a crackling and brushing in the undergrowth still directedme and bursting through the furze and brier I came out very suddenly upon the verge of the little brook and almost fell over 4he form of a man Who lay doubled upon the earth A3 1 stumbled and shifted to regain my balance I had a glimpse of a lithe lean bodied fellow vanishing precipitately Into the copse But obviously it was to the victim that I must first turn my mind rather than to any fugitive assailant He was a man as I guessed of some sixty years or more very bald of the head and under the middle stature Across his white and shining forehead was a stressof blood which drew from me an 2cIa- mation as I helped him to his feet MIt is not mine said he with a com placent smile I go better prepared than my years would suggest v Xo bones broken I Inquired He shook his head leaning upon my arm and breathing painfully A bruise or two and no wind in my belly no more I was a fool to have fprgotten my pistol The words recalled me to the thought of the runaway to whom I attributed this scurvy trick upon an old gentleman What was the cause I asked Some highway thief I Xmas Furniture I

remarked thought fully and pulling forth an ancient IcouldI made a motion to withdraw recol lecting hastily that It was my duty to ascertain some tidings of the ruffian but the old gentleman observing my Intention put his hand upon my shoulder I would not worry said he suave ly uIt is of small consequence as it liappens Xow had you come yj a mo 1 lad a glimpse of a Iftfce lean bodied fellow Rwent later he continued regarding me with a faint smile I could hardly thare put a limit on this business but as it is- Surely I broke in shortly you will bane the brute arrested if you recognize him again Becognlze nlrir murmured the old gentleman snuffing gently and with an air of consideration from his fingers cYes I dare say I should know him but I am sure you will allow me to manage this affair my own way I I have stood the racket you know though I heartily acknowledge you lave acquired a certain claim to atten tion It is very good of you he said politely and then Yes I think Ishould know him again if we met which Is of course extremely Improbable be concluded with a twinkle in his eyes Now the self possession of this old fellow with his air of Imperturbable courage puzzled me hugely and In a manned was very disconcerting He bad taken the outrage which had evi dently been committed upon his person with such mIldness even with amiability I could scarce credit my senses to see him discoursing there with his snuff between his fingers so pleasantly and broadly of the event He seemed quite unruffled though his- bodstIllipanted with the efforts of Iii strugg Is your watch safe I suppose it was robbery I said feeling somehow Tather mean and cast down by the un expected situation Thank you quite safe he replied without troubling to ascertain Yes quite safe Certainly I must suppose It to have been robberyyes robbery BO doubt His air was so abstracted that I took leave to doubt his sanity but after all it was no business of mine if hej was foolishly disposed to mercy and one needs but little imagination to conceive of a dozen deep reasons for an assault save the plain motive of theft He turned to me presently fIB I was jpon the point of withdrawing- I am at a loss to know said he la boring over hIS words and speaking very deliberately what devil of folly pursues men that they will hazard all on a piece of carelessness a wanton whIm or Just mere Indifference or Idle ness I cannot say He paused as we emerged upon the road This must tbe your horse then a good serviceable animal that would have warmed my lieart thirty years since I cannot say he resumed clutching gently at my arm that my advejpure today was due to any other cause than that of mere carelessness He paused again surveying my horse with appar ent interest In the first place1 should not have been so far from home secondly I should not have been without my revolver thirdly should have used my stick harder when I got home a concurrence of negligences which made my fate almost a certainty but for your arrival he added as a polite afterthought squeezing my arm I confess that I was utterly at a loss what to make of him and was Inclined to interpret him for a mild lunatic but we proceeded along the roadway I with the bridle of my horse over my arm He still clung to me discoursing quIetly In a melodious voice upon his views of life and the philosophy we should derive from It while I listened for the most part In silence But after walking for a quarter of an hour the latter part of which time was spent in a somewhat labortous ascent we came out upon the summit of a little hill clad In the splendid livery of sumnfer and surmounted by what seemed in the distance to be the ruins of a castle haltIand looked toward the building- I am fully conscious Mr I dont think I caught

trees My first impression nothinglessone of those fortalices reared by the harder barons against the inroads Welsh barbarians in the rlantageuot times As we drew near my gaze devoured the buildirig and took in mayy points of interest It was quite small but saving or one wing In perfect in tegrity From the huge masonry of the drum towers doWn to the moat and portcullis all was as it had been in the days maybe of Hugh Lupus The wing of the quadrangle to our left was dismantled and lay strewn with huge stones In precarious ruin A hundred yards or so upon the other side how ever gleamed the red roof and heavy thatch of farm building and a round stack or two in the neighborhood proved that the fortress kept its an dent Uses no longerTYou will see that I am able to resist a siege said iny host with a whim sical smile as we crossed the drawbridge adding with what seemed to me a comical Irony and looking down at the bridge I fear though we should find some trouble with the hinges rWe passed through the arch of ma sonry and into the courtyard within where the old gentleman Speedily sum moned a man and gave him charge of my horse And here again I noticed that further appearances testified to the use of the castle as a farm From a scrutinr of this pleasant aspect I was aroused py my host who pausing as he pushed open ahug voaken door turned to me suddenly I am trenlely remiss Mr Greato rex he exclaimed with a gesture of apology You have not yet the style of your grateful host My name is Kesteven and this Is generally known as Ivor castle All this WasI conceived in the most formal an

ever 1 must it appeared sit and drink with him a glass of sherry in his li brary a large and ancient room with very line display of oaken shelves and panelingA later I excused myself and rose for departure For a minute or two he appeared to have fallen into- abstraction and then glancing at me quickly he regarded me with a stead gaze1IrGreatlU said he you are a young man to think that we

but I am reminded that you have seen nothing of u house which is some historical interest and which I should esteem myself happy to show you Is it necessary that you should return to your Swan this evening The invitation in the query took mo aback fpr eccentric as my host un doubtedly was I had not anticipated this proffer ofhospitality Yet there was certainly no pressing reason for my return and here at least I should have more congenial company than in my miscellaneous taproom I replied something to the effect of this thought Good said he brightening a little You are kind to dicer a solitary I can even promise you a bottle of champagne if you are young enough If you will allow me I will call my house keeper He rose and went to the bell but pausing with his hand upon the rope looked at me graYelYi I should be doing you wrong Mr Greatorex he said if I were not to lt you know that by consenting to be my guest tonight you are conferring upon me a great favor You place me

a long low roofed chanttJer occupying the ground floor and with windows upon the cobble courtyard on the one side und the park on the other It was n great chamber to contain but two people but somehow the black oak of the walls and the general air of the upholstery prohibited the thought of discomfort These walls were not vacant nor this space but tenanted if one considered duly by a concourse of illustrious faces hnd high stepping ghosts Upon this pofut as It happened I was not long left In curiosity for Mr Kesteven was in the mood tb confide the history of the castle to Ie IIe was a queer creature partaking as It seemed to me of the most diverse and Incongruous emo tions Constantly he would set me wonderIng upon his statements striv ing to pick some order In their appar ent confusion One moment quite a sounding pride rang In his pompous annunciation of the titles of some great noble while the next I was driven to suppose by very clear signs that he dis played uothiiig but a pitiful contempt toward the whole prejudice of race and family The mate struck me as wearing a mask and that a mask of such severity and primness as to offer very few its to his company And even at his Illfmentsot most spacious frank ness I T as never able to determine the depth of Its genuineness He fetched me out some wines giving me a generous choice but himself drinking but sparingly No

fellowship No said I echoing his smile I have been myself preserved from the hard chairs of a very crowded tap rooni and the quarrelsome attentions of half drunken formers Olive come said he genially you must not give the Swain a villainous reputation Oh It was not I 1 answered lightly keeping up the triviality but a young gentleman of the Gwent Mr Kesteven ceased to smile May I ask his name he

the woods and valleys with a golden glory Smoking a cigarette I strolled round the edifice surveying with admiring es the details of the design The entrance by the portcullis lay between two solid drum towers very formidable to look on The bat tlements which were extremely plain and by no means perfect the machico lations being worn into great chasms here and there stood two stories away from the base of The castle and three if the bottom of the moat be counted Upon the one side of the Irregular square which the buildings made the stonework as I have said had fallen into disrepair land Indeed tie rooms were habitable here The detritus of centuries had flowed over into the courtyards and the stones were heaped in a solid accumulation and overgrown with masses of huge Irish IyThe southern face of the castle was so to speak but a hill ot rock It was at the junction of the southern and western walls that the keep stood itself raised some twenty feet above the level of the battlements and the termination of the habitable portion of the fortress The moat which was some ten feet deep was grown upon with grass and its sides were covered with blackberry and furze and divers wlld creepers Completing my circuit of the castle I struck upon a stream which ran la a full body through the park and reach lug the erge of the woodland leaped suddenly into a torrent and scattered

flamed the morning sun They rose some fifty sands away There Is a connection with the moat by means of a conduit explained Mr KesteyenII uttered an exclamation of delight and vowed that I must explore farther Assenting graciously he led the way toward the house and letting himself gently3own the sloping bank walked peering about him along the bottom Yof the moat You will find it over grown 110 doubt he said But your eyes4lre better than mine It Is ten years since I looked for it Isearched amid the trailing creepers and presently discovered the mouth of the conduit It was of thick stone and mortar and from Its appearance must have been of very ancient construction But the opening was choked with earth and grass and probably had been so for centuries I said as much to Mr Kesteven 2W he returned I thinlTnot I believe my predecessor the tenancy of the castle had it opened some 1 yIyears ago anti flooded the moat his gwnamuseinent I underStand that the experiment was quite successful and entertained a of guests one of whom he added dryly fell into the water and was only rescued with some difficulty But you shall make better acquaintance with our neigh borhood after breakfast I assure you Mr Greatorer it Is worth your study and this castle of mine Is by no means singularI quite at his disposal for a stroll later In the morning and upon that occasion got my first knowledge aqas glad enough to profit by at a little later period And here I may set forth in a few words the character of that country which was destined to be so strangely connected with my fortunes The castle stood upon a little eminence toward the hIgh r parts of the hills and looked down toward the east upon a long broad valley as upon its special domain This valley which was some three miles long and little more than a mile across was Inclosed by undulat lug hills and enveloped1 in a dense wth of forest Two roads ran from rd1onehttdJmounted less upon this road when we came upon the first signs of life The country was but sparsely peopled but here at any rate was some remote arid faith ful settler The innfor such it was bore the name of the Woodman and was as I conceived of the sixteenths century at least li jas small but the outbuildings attaching to It rambled away Into tIle forest behind The sign swung creaking on a green patch of grass before the door As we drew near a man lounging In front of the Inn suddenly drew his pipe from his mouth Jtnd touched his hat Good morning Hood said my com panion quietly pausing and leaning on his stick These are very pleasant days for us nil

cnspectfully- All indeed its wonderful how long cheerfullyBusiness not losingby the experiment I sup pose he said turning to me again that it is a trying position to be in iti subordinate state Every

dont hold so much with Llanellan sir This is a tidy house and business will improve I hope Well well let us hope so was Mr Kestevens answer as his eyes wander ed toward the Inn A pretty place is it not Mr Greatorex And then with a glance of scrutiny at the land lord You have had an accident Hood Yes sir was the answer a slight accident sir nothing of consequence I fell against the bar yesterday and he put a finger apologetically to his clean shaved lip which I now per ceived to be somewhat swollen A nasty fall a nasty fall said Mr Kesteven shaking liis had It is lucky it was no worseUc moved away with a courteous nod of his head to which the innkeeper responded with a salute As he did so he turned and taking my arm smiled back at Hood You see the Gwent has its visitors sometimes Hood Mr Greatorex ls staying with me So perhaps we may turn the Woodman in time into a fash- Ionable resort of society 7 He laughed as if at his own small jest in which the innkeeper joined and pressngjnjr arm walked on He seemed a very kindly master I thought mid I had no doubt but that Hood had been an excellent servant I remarked as much to which he as sented cordially I have never come upon a man who fell into my ways better and knew his work more efficiently he said An admirable servant altogether admira bleOur walk had exhilarated me and what fs more had given me a huge appetite The gsult was that ate heartily of lunch which was delicately served by the agreeable old housekeeper Mr Kesteven also seemed to rally his appetite for he had epten but little the previous evening and drank a good deal of brown sherry in which he jest ingly invited tfto join him But I was for the sour or perfumed claret which I found much to my palate Whether it was the sherry or not my hosts tongue plied very continuously during the meal but always in the most possessed and civil manner He spoke of his house of his ancient de scent which was as ancient as the castle and finally of himself The Kes1 teens had been people of note in oth er centuries had hoarded gains and fulfilled the ponip veu of courts had fluttered briei1aiid very brightly stud in various characters across the stage of history But now they dire dwIn dled to tli s one old feeble man The race had lost its physical vigor From contesting tournaments lighting bat tieS and intriguing against courts it had come to philosophizing over life between four walls And then falling silent for a time he inspect fl his fin ger nails and suddenly and after u space rose and pushed back Lila chair I beg your pardon Mr Greatorex he said with a gestur of apology I md not noticed you have not finished Pray forgive my discourtesy- Of course 1 put myself at his disposal for In truth I had eaten and drunk qru enough Put seeming not to liesi me he Ijokcduppn the table and at last raising his eyes to mine and playing gently but scarcely In a nerv oils fashion with the forks before him he said very quietly- I have had the honor of your ac quaintance for some twenty hours Mr Greatorex Itjis little two men may know qf each other In so brief a time But I aiti wont to take quick cogni zance of people and eoutenttorisk a mistake You have If you will forgive nie saying so an admirable habit of ak lence lie paused und n 8 itlt had been to justify his seutentt I hold my tonguerecluse like myketrthat- Is how you would style me he re mimed occupationffor his I am no student It follows that I have some other hobby shall we say A ghost otn smile glittered on his lytownrdtime courtyard There was the sound of footsteps up the rough cobble I am about to disclose to you Mr Greatorex the secret of my seclusion I rose with him strangely influenced by this solemn scene nslt really solemn or was It the mere whim of old age the pompous revelation of se nile eccentricity I followed him down the stone passage to the eastern wing of the castle Fifty paces farther brought us to the entraI1ceo the keep but a dozen yards from this Mr Ices i t teven paused and turning the key In a hcav oaken door entered a room of considerable sjze which as you will see looked f rtlll1pon the back part of the pack from the second floor Like all the chambers in that ancient build Ingllt was paneled with oak e room was devoid of furniture save for a rickety chair or two and was wholly destitute of carpet so that sonE4Hommeat and with the odd preparations for that mission that I was so to speak upon the very edge of a mysterious dis covery Mr Kesteven placed a chair against the wall and stepping upon it with difficulty raised his mind till It touched the topmost panel near the window There followed a slight creak and the panel slid back disclosing a darkami vacant space In which I could dimly dis ecru the separation of shelves My host had but dropped his lingers into the recesses of thIs cupboard when a faint noise caught his ears and he turned abruptly I had fol pjtvetl lhu into the room cud the door stood open But I turned now with him and followed the direction of his gaze The man Hood stood forward in the door3 way with an apologetic air Mr Kes7 tevcns hand dropped sharply and with a certain brusqueness he demanded What do you want The oxvalet touched an imaginary fiat I beg your pardon sir I am sure hut I called to know if you would be wanting that gun you spoke of the other day Mrs Main didnt know and I thought that maybe it would save time if I was to ask you myself He was n perfect model of servile deportment displayed iiojaltp of nerv ousness but only the rigid good man ners of the trained servant Mr Kes teven stepped down from he chair und leiSurely dusted his coat sleeves Then he looked up and the westering sun struck full upon his lace vliloli I could not but observe wasrmorccolor less than usual No thank you Hood he said suavely hI have changed my mind It was gpojjof you but I shall not need it The two men eyed each other for an instant and then the servants eyes fell with civil politeness Thank yousir Sony to trouble you sir ho said and turned about on the threshold But Mr Kesteven stop ped him As you are here Hood he said breathing hard as from his exertions I should be obliged if you would kindly closo that panel for me I am not so young as I was naturally Mr Greatorex he explained turning to me with a faint smile There was a perceptible pause for so ready a servant I thought as Hood moved froth his place by the door to obey the order I thought too that I noticed a sudden flash of amazement pass in his eyes but when he went by me they were merely deferential ltlnd I imagined that I had been mistaken And nor my friend said Mr Kes teven genially putting his hand through mint when the panel had been closed we will get into the open air We cannot avail ourselves too touch or too often of thes summer days eh hood tXo sir said Hood promptly with the promptness of a machine and with no more Inflettiou than a good servant should have Ahl feel it myself Mr Greatorex said the old inan leaning somewhat heavily upon my urmnswe issued from tlie cb31nbertHood closed and lockets the door after him The key sir he said respectfully holding it out hOh the key will do where it is

Greatorex he 8uldhI will Join you In the dining room He walked backward a few yards toward the roum which I had learned was his bedro ui and as he did so the lean figure of the deferential innkeeper rose out of the gloom as if to meet him I myself weut down into the courtyard and then found my way into the large oaken dining room When he entered some few minutes later I was astounded by the change In his fate Naturally pale it was now of a peculiar and ghastly pallor which gave his head almost the appearance of a skull Laying a finger on my arm he spoke quite sharply Mr Greatorex said he you can do me n particular favor if you willI I listened niuruiurlng my willingness Can you drive me to Raymond at once I will have the horses put in the dogcart Most certainly I answered staring and at a loss for more words- I owe you many thanks he said and slipping away with that noiseless tottering gaifsof KB he disappeared Into the courtyard It was not fifteen minutes ere we were upon the

turned a mild eye uponme You drive well my friend he said From all appearances you have u hard nerve It is well It is well It is the one Ing I have aimed at and I might have succeeded had not my-
