HE count ordered
a 11 preparations
consistent with the
resources of the
chateau to be made
for the approach-
ing wedding, and
that he was very
diplomatic in talk-
ing confidently be-
fore the servants,
of the series of festivities which should
follow that event. He affected an air
of the utmost security, and laid out a
score of improvements to be made in
the garden, at a period when he meant
to be safely landed on a foreign shore,
And every few hours he exchanged
a knowing nod with M. Pierre, a« if
glorying over his wise sagacity. In
these preparations, of course, the ab-
sence of the most valuable service of
silver was discovered, but the wily M.
Pierre had forestalled the need of ex-
planation by Informing his credulous
master that he had taken the precau-
tion, in consideration of the disturb-
ances In other places, to secrete it, and
that it should be ready for him at the
wedding festival, unless he preferred
to have it snugly packed for transport-
ation to the fishing sloop, which last
idea the count eagerly seconded
rode over to Frejus to find some one
to perform the ceremony, and on the
way thither met a bishop coming to
him for protection. He had left Paris
expecting to find a relative at Frejus
but every one who held the slightest
claim to aristocracy had fied from
The count received him warmly, and
carried him back to the chateau in tri
umph. Now everything was prepared
only waiting for the bridegroom to be
able to perform his share of the cere-
mony. M. Pierre was ostensibly most
j active in carrying forward the prepara-
tions, but the countess shuddered every
j time she met his eye. The bishop's
j presence gave the ladles more excuse
; for lingering in their own rooms; and
It also seemed an opportunity to visit
the Little Forest. Thei 'fore, that very
evening they stole forth cautiously and
| went speeding along toward the hollow
tree. Before they reached the edge of
the wood the form of Emile started up
from the hedge which bordered the
adow. He spoke their names eager-
ly, and dispersed the momentary terror
which his sudden appearance had
"Thank Heaven you have come! I
ft'as trying to conjure up an opportu-
nity for speaking with you. How pro-
ceed matters at the chateau?"
"Illy enough, I fear, though the
Sount fancies everything favorable,"
answered the countess.
"And the overseer?"
"He is there still. The count trusts
him implicitly, and has confided to him
all his plans of escape."
"Mon Dleu! is the man demented?"
"He will not listen to our remon-
itrances," answered Fellcie, while her
mother kept silence.
"Have you told him what you
"No; though we assured him that we
had proof of his treachery. He declared
he should go to M.Pierre with our accu-
sations, and we dared not reveal all
without first consulting you."
"That was prudent," said Emile,
while between his teeth he muttered,
"Dolt! idiot! brute! the man does not
deserve to live." And in a moment he
added gravely, "It would be the ex-
tinguishment of your best hopes of es-
cape to reveal my presence here, or the
locality of the retreat I have provided.
I half expected to find you gone; and 1
fervently hoped it might be bo."
"We waited for the Marquis Ed-
"And he arrived two nights ago.
Why were you not away before this?
Every hour is of priceless value."
I The countess sighed heavily.
"He is ill; we are only waiting for
I his recovery; then the marriage is to
take place, and we are to ride directly
i to the wharf at St. Josephs."
| "I wish I knew their plans better;
not a soul has entered the woods since
I came, and the pikes have been re-
moved. I lost the precious opportunity
• by my long absence."
"Ah," cried Fellcie, "we looked for |
you so anxiously,
J about you."
"I could not come. I have learned a
bitter lesson in my absence. I, who
held them to my sway before, have
I found the tide so swollen that it bore
! me along like a feather. I lifted up my
voice for freedom, equality, manhood—
did I know they would interpret it law-
lessness, demoralization, brutality?
Alack! one cannot play with fire ex-
cept to be scorched. My heart has died
within me to witness the horrors which
reign triumphant, conscious, as I am,
that I helped to nurse the spark
which has become such a madly de-
I vourlng element. There is but one
course left me; I must secretly aid all
who come within reach of my helping
"You counsel us to refrain from men-
tioning the adventure in the woods that
night?" questioned the countess, anx-
ious to return as speedily as possible.
| "I certainly do, if it Is to be retailed
at once to the arch villain, Pierre. Be-
sides, It is too late now. Pierre is aware 1
of your movements. I wish I were cer-
tain of his. I must go to Frejus and
hunt up a few trusty comrades; by
their means I may learn more. Hut it
ill be prudent for you to accompany
me to the tree ami learn how to man-
age the spring which opens the Jagged
door of the tree-trunk. Then If you
can reach it you will be safe, whatever
happens to me."
Let us go now; we may have no
other opportunity," said Fellcie.
They proceeded thither in silence.
The countess seemed greatly fatigued
and sat down on the ground, while
Emile carefully Initiated her daughter

denly, and, extending her hand, said,
with grave, solemn sweetness:
"Heaven bless you, EmKft, and
ward you for all your devotion."
He held her hand in his Just a brief
moment, then dropped it without a
word. The countess drew Felicie's arm
within hers and hurried away, nor cast
a single backward glance. They were
just in season to escape detection, and
had hardly removed their wrappers
when the count burst in upon them.
"To-morrow night, Fellcie, my love!"
exclaimed he. "The Marquis Edward
improves rapidly, he declares himself
convalescent, and insists that there be
no further delay. So get out your fin-
ery to-morrow. He will not see you till
you are dressed in your bridal gar-
ments. It's a pity the wedding must
be such a paltry affair; but we'll cele-
brate it in worthy style when we return
again to France. But be sure you look
a little like a Langtiedoc. After all, the
dress can be quite as pretty as if you
had a dozen corbellles from Paris.
There's plenty of rich lace in the ward-
robe, and the diamonds will brighten
all. I want Edward to remember his
bride as a charming picture, though
there be no guests nor festival."
"And you intend to proceed at once
to the vessel?" asked the countess.
"Grant mo this favor as a bridal
gift, mon pere," exclaimed Fellcie, the
tears rushing to her eyes; "let M. Pi-
erre believe we are not to go until the

He did not disclose the fact that he
had Just come from M. Pierre and had
discussed the whole arrangement free-
ly. And so, believing M. Pierre in ig-
norance, and conscious of Emile's vl
clnity, mother and daughter slept
peacefully through the night.

was up and dressed
In clothes fur-
bished up from the
well stocked ward-
robes, quite early
in the day; but he
preferred not to see his bride until the
marriage vows were exchanged—on
the ostensible plea of reserving all his
strength free from excitement, but in
reality from a disinclination he could
not overcome. The countess, herself,
dressed her daughter in the fleecy
white robes, nor would allow another
hand to touch a single fold. She lin-
gered fondly over the task, reluctant
to finish, and even Fellcie was obliged
to say, with a blush and a smile:
"There, there, mamma! I am sure
it is all complete now—you could not
bo more particular if there were a
thousand guests to behold me!"
But the countess smoothed a wave of
hair here, brushed out a tumbled
flounce, readjusted each spray of the
orange crown, and finally removed ttfe
diamond ornaments entirely and re-
placed them with her own rich set of

"For this once, no matter; he will not
have time to allude to it. The
pearls are so much prettier. Now is
my darling a fairy looking bride, in-

"Ah, it 18 for him you are so fastid-
iously particular tonight. I had for-
gotten, almost, what It meant for me,

cause it was the gateway for our es-
cape from this wearing life of sus-
"Wearing, indeed!" reiterated the
countess, and putting her hand hastily
to her side, she turned deathly pale.
Fellcie sprang forward in alarm.
"What is it, my mother? are you
was it given to the wicked man to real-
izo his own folly and his servant's
treachery, the next he fell a corpse at
the feet of hie daughter.
Felicie's wild shriek rang through
the room. She strove to reach her
mother, ere a brutal arm with its up-
lifted pike should fall—saw the be-
loved form suddenly sink back and her-
self sank fainting to the floor. Re-
viving, she was conscious of a fierce
affray going on at the chateau, and
she herself lying amidst the cold
corpses of her friends. She crept has-
tily iia h«?r weakness would allow tc
her mother's side, and anxiously lis-
tened for a throb of breathing at hei
lifeless heart. All in vain. And yet
there was no sign of a blow or wound.
Remembering how she had fallen
ere tLj pike descended, the poor child
had a dismal comfort in believing hei
heart had broken at the sudden shock.
Suddenly now came the remem-
brance of her own hapless condition,
and the danger of M. Pierre's return
with those brutal ruffians. The new
thought gave her strength. Hastily
disengaging a black cloak from the
shoulders of the murdered bishop, she
wrapped it over her white robes, leaped
hastily through a broken window, and
darted like a frightened fawn past a
man pacing to and fro, as if guarding
against the approach of friend and
foe. She knew he saw her, and in a
moment heard his plunging steps fol-
lowing. But terror and despair gave
her fleetness. She knew the path well
and though every now and then her
lace flounces caught upon brier and
bush, she tore them off with frantic
hands, and went leaping forward. She
stumbled twice and fell headlong—but
sprang up again like a deer, and at
length gained the wood. It was eas-
ier to elude him here; she darted in
and out among the trees, until she was
sure her dread pursuer had lost the
track. She heard his muttered curses
as he blundered around, and lightly
as a fairy she flew on to the blessed
relief at hand.
She gained the tree, pressed the
spring with desperate hand, and rushed
in. A cold chili sank upon her heart;
it was empty. Where, oh, where, was
Emile? Was there no friend left her?
She sank shivering upon the earthy
floor, and buried her head in her hands.
She could not think over, then, all the
anguish that had fallen upon her—the
terrible bereavement of the past hour;
parents, bridegroom, home and friends
all stricken from the hand that seemed
tb hold them so securely. Her brain
whirled, a terrible sickening fear took
possession of her—that M. Pierre would
find out her retreat, or drag her forth,
or that Emile was killed also, and 6he
should perish there of starvation.
These absorbed every faculty, and
crouching and listening, she survived
two hours of almost intolerable agony.
Another hour would have turned her
brain; before its expiration, a rapid
step came bounding to the tree, the
door was flung open, and Emile's voice
"Lady Fellcie, Lady Felicie! are you
