CHAPTER II. (Continued.)
"I'm sure I doa't know how I shall
set on there tonight. I don't know
where this frolicsome engine hai
chosen to deposit us but we must be
at least 10 miles away from North -cliff."
Janetta gave an Involuntary start;
the man's destination was the same as
"You can take my dogcart if you
like. It's at a house hard by. 1

Thanks ever so much. I believe

ing her eyes; the rest of the passen-
gers seem sorting themselves. Let me
see there's a child that belongs to this
woman somewhere." And glancing
round he saw Janetta. faithful to her
trust seated on the bank with the
A child he sought in her arms.
He smiled and lifted his hat.
"Let me relieve you of your burden"
he said a certain tenderness In his
voice as he looked at the little child.
"There don't cry" to the little one
"mammy's all righ'."
He carried it off as genUy as a
woman would have done; then he re-
turned to Janetta standing by her
with a certain hesitation.
"I have turned up a friend here who
kindly offers his dogcart to forward
me to my destination. Can I be of
any service to you? I expect there
will be a train presently to carry on
the passengers. Is it an impertinence
to ask wheie you are going?"
Janetta rose with a feeling of stiff-
ness In her limbs and some unsteadi-
! ness of motion. The shock had half
dased her. "I'm going to the Orange
Nortbcliff." she said.
"How very odd! I'm bound for the
same place. Under the circumstances
we bad better go on together. I'll
to Drake about it. Sit down
again a minute. You look as If the I"
accident had been too much for your
nerves" be said smiling pleasantly.
"Kindly tell me your name and I'll
see that your luggage and my own are
forwarded to us ister."
"I'm Miss Howard."
"Thank you. Then I'll see If there
Is luggage tor the names of Howard
and Merlvale to be rescued from the
debris and then we'll get on as fast
as we can. As Miss Seymour Is deli-
cate. It might be serious If she heard
rumors of an accident to our train be-
fore we arrived.
"Invalid!" ejaculated Janetta as her
companion hurried off to complete his
preparations; "and I should not won-
der If this Mr. Merlvale were a nephew
of the old tody. Very likely has ex-
pectations!" Once fairly started la the brisk
c renins air. Janetta's courage anJ
spirits began to revive and she could
hardly help smiling at the curious po-
sition In which she found herself seat-
ed side by side with a complete stran-
ger la a borrowed dogcart going to a
lady of whom she knew absolutely
nothing but the name.
"It la certainly a curious coincidence
that yon and 1 should be bound tor
the same house." began Mr. Merlvale;
"but it is still more curious to me that
often as I am down at the Orange. I
nave not heard your name mentioned
Tnat Is easily explained. I an-
swered Miss Seymour's advertisement
lor a companion and she is kind
enough to give me a trial. We have
not met." said Janetta simply.
Her companion turned quickly and.
In the half light gave a swift acruti-
nlzlag glance accompanied by a smile
of which Janetta found it hard to ex-
plain the meaning. It was half
amused and half luc:e4uloua. He made
no sort of comment upon her explana-
tion but turned the conversation rap-
idly to other channels.
"He knows all about that eccentric
Id lady's advertisement." she thought
Mr. Merlvale chatted away so agree-
ably on many topics and the ten miles'
drive passH so quickly that Janetta
gave a little start of astonishment
when Mr. Merlvale pointed with his
whip to the twinkling Hunts of the
iittle harbor and told her that they
were within half a mile of their dea-
It was quite dark as they drove
through the cobbled streets of the
little town; then by a sharp ascent
they climbed the hill Just outside It.
and. turning into a drivegate set open
to receive them drew up at the door
of a long low irregularly built bouse.
Mr. Merlvale Jumped to the ground
and threw the reins to the groom
gently lifting Janetta out of the cart
The next Instant they were admitted
by an extremely smart parlormaid Into
the low. oak-pannelled hall where a
log-Ore biased cheerily on the hearth
A lady of between sixty and seventy
whose gown rustled as she moved ad
vsnced to meet her.
"Allow me to Introduce Miss How
ard " said Mr. Merlvale.
Janetta's luart sank. The stern fea-
ture of the lady to whom she was In
troduced scarcely relaxed Into a smile
and a cold hsnd held her own.
"Come in. Miss Howard Your train
must have been very late; we expected
you more tban an hour ago."
"There was an accident. The train
ran off the line. 1 think and we were
landed. Mr. Merlvale and 1 "
"Captain Merlvale.' corrected her
Janetta glanced round quickly to I
U Captain Merlvale had followed and
was listening to the correction; but
he was nowhere to be seen.
"We had not met before. I did not
know that he was Captain Merlvale
by intuition; but he was very anxious
that you should not be frightened on
his account. Miss Seymour. He told
me that you were not strong."
A smile crossed the narrow face a
"I am not Miss Seymour. It is
many years since any one irouoiea
himself to consider my feelings. I am
Mrs. Mortimer Miss Seymour's lady
housekeeper. Until lately I believed
myself also to be her companion; but
I'm dull apparently and getting old.
I'm not enough for her and I am to be
supplanted by you."
Janetta stretched out her hands
eagerly appealtngly a great sorrow
filling her heart for the woman before
her. with whom the world had evi-
dently dealt so hardly.
"Not supplanted" she said "only
supplemented. I don't know what
Miss Seymour's wants may be but let
me help you any way I can. I dont
care what I do. Yon can put me Into
the way of things tell me my duties
and give me a hint when I make a

the elder woman coldly looking at
the outstretched hands but not taking
them Into her own. "You are young
and good-looking; they are the only
qualifications which Miss Seymour
seems to require. She will ace you.
she says after dinner. Shall I show
you to your room?"
Janetta followed her up the thickly-carpeted
stairs Into a room so lux-
uriously furnished that she comd
hardly believe that it was the one
Intended for her except that her fur
coat had been already carried up
there with such other possessions as
she had with her In the carriage.
She found Mrs. Mortimer still alone
when she went downstairs.
"Captain Merlvale dines tonight
with Mias Seymour In her Itoudolr"
she explained as she led the way Into
the dining room. "Sometimes Miss
Seymour is well enough to dine with
us. but today ahe has been over-exciting
herself and was so tired that I
advised ber remaining upstairs."
Janetta would have liked to have
asked a hundred questions about Miss
Seymour but the presence of the par-
lormsid and the forbidding manner of
her companion made her curb her curi-
osity. . They had scarcely returned to the
drawing room before a message was
delivered to Janetu to demand ber
presence In Miss Seymour's room.
"You can show Miss Howard the
way to your mistress' room. Mason"
said Mrs. Mortimer. And Janetta fol
lowed the maid.
She was ushered into a sitting room

had ever entered. It was a general
sense of beauty and luxury that struck
her at first for her attention centered
itself at once upon Its only occupant.

who lay upon the couch that was
drawn near the lire.
She raised herself to a sitting pos
ture and held out her hand with a
smile of welcome.
"I'm afraid you must come to me.
Miss Howard. I'm too tired to get up to
greet you. Bit down near me will
you? I tent Harry off to the smoking
room as I told him I wanted to talk
to you alone for a bit"

"I devoutly hope you will and

you must tell me what I can do to
help you. I'm sure I could carry you

Miss Seymour broke into merry
laughter. "I don't want you for hard

nobody in her senses would answer It.

"I had over two hundred answers so

that the remark was in bad taste.

difference in her lot except that she
will have to give orders for another

"She is perfectly Invaluable In her

she is occasionally depressing."
"You will give me something to do?"
said JanetU when Miss Seymour came
to a pause. "Not the things that Mrs.
Mortimer has done for you. It might
hurt her feelings."
"Oh you will not have much to do.
You will be cheerful when I'm sad
and kind when I'm cross; and you
won't offer to read aloud unless I ask
you and you will talk when I want
you to Ulk; and above all things
you won t try palpably to amuse me.
"Nothing bores me like that; and I
do hope you can arrange flowers nice-

change of subject "how you liked Cap-

here for a little bit before be goes out

"He was very kind." replied Janetta.
"I scarcely know how I would have got

Here was a case of great domestic
anguish. The son of the household

among other things paralyzed his

There has been much destructive
superstitlton abroad In the world con-
cerning possession by evil spirits.
Under the form of belief in witchcraft
this delusion swept the continents.
Persons were supposed to be possessed
with some evil spirit which made them
able to destroy others. In the six-
teenth century in Geneva 1.500 persona
were burned to death as witches. In
one neighborhood of Prance 1.000 per-
sons were burned. In two centuries
200000 persons were slain as witches.
So mighty wss the delusion that it
included among Its victims some of
the greatest intellects of all time
such as Chief Justice Matthew Hale
and Sir Edward Coke and such re-
nowned ministers of religion as Cotton
Mather one of whose books Benjamin
Franklin said shaped his life and
Richard Baxter and Archbishop Cran-

laughing stock of all sensible people

Thanks to Christianity for what it
has done for the amelioration of the
condition of the deaf and dumb. Back
In the ages they were put to death as
having no right with such paucity of
equipment to live and for centuries
they were classed among the Idiotic
and unsafe. But in the sixteenth cen-
tury came Pedro Ponce the Spanish
monk and in the seventeenth century
came John Pablo Bonet. another Span-
ish monk with dactylology or the
finger alphabet and in our own coun-
tury we have had John Braid wood and
Drs. Mitchell and Ackerly and Peet and

ed thousands of those whose tongues

the most impressive audiences I ever
addressed was in the far west an au-

Silence Sometimes a Crime.
There has been apotheoslzation of
silence. Someone has said silence is
golden and sometimes the greatest
triumph Is to keep your mouth shut
But sometimes silence is a crime and
the direct result of the baleful Influ-
ence of the dumb devil of our text.
There is hardly a man or woman who
has not been present on some occa-
sion when the Christian religion be-
came a target for raillery. Perhaps It
was over in the store some day when
there was not much going on and the
clerks were in a group or It was in
the factory at the noon spell or it was
out on the farm under the trees while
you were resting or it was in the club-
room or it was In a social circle or
it was in the street oh the way home
from business or It was on some occa-
sion which you remember without my
describing it. Someone got the laugh
on the Bible and caricatured the pro-
fession of religion as hypocrisy or
made a pun out of something that
Christ said. The laugh sUrted and
you Joined in and not one word of pro-
test did you utter. What kept you
silent? Modesty? No. Incapacity to
answer? No. Lack of opportunity?
No. It was a blow on both your Hps
by the wing of the dumb devil. If
someone should malign your father or
mother or wife or husband or child
you would flush up quick and either
with an indignant word or doubled up
fist make response. And yet here is
our Christian religion which has done
so much for you and so much for the
world that It will Uke all eternity to
celebrate It and yet when It was at-
tacked you did not so much as say.
"I differ. I object. I am sorry to hear
you say that. There la another side
to this." You Christian people ought
in such times as these to go armed
not with earthly weapons but with the
sword of the spirit. You ought to have
four or Ave questions with which you
could confound any man who attacks
Christianity. A man 90 years old was
telllngmebow he put to flight a scoffer.
My aged friend said to the skeptic
"Did you ever read the history of
Joseph in the Bible?" "Yea." said
the man. "it is a fine story and as in-
teresting a story as I ever read."
"Well now" said my old friend "sup-
pose that account of Joseph stopped
half way?" "Oh" said the man "then
it would not be entertaining." "Well.
now " said my friend we nave in mis
world only half of everything and do
you not think that when we hear the
last half things may be consistent and
that then we may find that God was
Rllenre Gives Coateat.
Ob friends better load up with a
few interrogation points! You cannot
afford to be silent when God and the
Bible and the things of eternity are
assailed. Your silence gives consent
to the bombardment of your Father's
house. You allow a slur to be cast on
your mother'a dying pillow. In behalf
of the Christ who for you went
through the agonies of assassination
on the rocky bluff back of Jerusalem
you dared not face a sickly Joke. Bet-
ter load up with a few questions so
that next time you will be ready. Say
to the scoffer: "My dear sir will you
tell me whst makes the difference be-
tween the condition of woman In
China and the United SUtes? What
do you think of the sermon on the
mount? How do you like the golden
rule laid down In the Scriptures? Are
you In favor of the Ten Command
menu? In your large and extensive
reading have you come across a love-
lier character than Jesus Christ? Will
you please to name the triumphant
deatfroeda of Infidels and atheisU?
How do you account for the fact that
among the out and out believers In
Christianity were such persons as
Renjamin Franklin. John Ruskln.
Thomas Carlyle Babington Macaulay.
William Penn Walter Scott. Charles
Kingsley. Horace Bushnell. James A.
Garfield Robert E. Lee. Stonewall
Jackson Admiral Foote. Admiral Far-
ragut. Ulysses S. Grant John Milton
William Shakespeare Chief Justice
Marshall John Adams. Daniel Web-
ster George Washington? How do
you account for their fondness for the
Christian religion? Among the In-
numerable colleges and universities of
the earth will you name me three
started by infidels and now supported
by Infidels? Down In your heart are
you really happy in the position you
occupy anUgoniatic to the Christian
religion? When do you have the most
rapturous views of the next world?"
Go at him with a few such questions
and he will get so red In the face as to
suggest apoplexy and he will look at
his watch and any he has an engage-
ment and must go. You will put him
in a sweat that will beat a Turkish
bath. You will put him on a rout com-
pared with wh.-h our troops at Bull
Run made no time at all. Arm your-
self not with arguments but with ln-
terrogation points and I promise you

of atheisU. But "Whereas." and
"Whereas." and "Whereas." Nine
cheers will be given for the platform.
The dumb devil of the text puto one
wing over the one platform and the
other wing over the other platform.
Those great conventions are opened
with prayer by their chaplains. If they
avoided platitudes and told the honest
truth in their prayers they would aay:
"O Lord we want to be postmasters
and consuls and foreign ministers and
United States district attorneys. For
that we are here and for that we will
strive till the election next November.
Give us office or we die. Forever and
ever amen." The world to say the
least is no better than the church on
this subject of silence at the wrong
time. In other words is it not time
for Christianity to become pronounced
and aggressive as never before? Take
sides for God and sobriety and right-
eousness. "If the Ixrd be God fallow
him; if Baal then follow him." Have
you opportunity of rebuking a sin?
Rebuke It. Have you a chance to cheer
a disheartened soul? Cheer it Have
you a useful word to speak? Speak It
Be Bp aad Doles-
Be out and out up and down for
righteousness. If your ship is afloat
on the Pacific ocean of God's mercy.
hang out your colors from the mast-
head. Show your passport if you have
one. Do not smuggle your soul Into
the harbor of heaven. Speak out for
God! Close up the chapter of lost op-
portunities and open a new chapter.
Before you get to the door on your
way out shake hands with someone
and ask him to Join you on the road
to heaven. Do not drive up to heaven
in a two wheeled "sulky" with room
only for one and that yourself but
get the biggest gospel wagon you can
And and pile It full of friends and
neighbors and shout till they boar you
all up and down the skies "Come with
us and we will do you good for the
Lord hath promised good concerning
Israel." The opportunity for good which
you may constaer insignincani may
be tremendous for results as when on
the sea Captain Haldane swore at the
ship's crew with an oath that wished
them all in perdition and a Scotch
sailor touched his cap and said "Cap-
tain God hears prayer and we would
be badly off If your wish were an-
swered." CapUin Haldane was con-
victed by the sailor's remark and con-
verted and became the means of the
salvation of his brother Robert who
had been an infidel and then Robert
became a minister of the gospel and
under his ministry the godless Felix
Neff became the world renowned mis-
sionary of the cross and the worldly
Merle d'Aublgne became the author of
"The History f the Reformation" and
will be the glory of the church for all
ages. Perhaps you may do as much
as the Scotch sailor who just tipped his
cap and used one broken sentence by
which the earth and the heavens are
still resounding with potent Influences.
Do something for God' and do It right
away or you will never do it at all.
Time flies away fast
The while we never remember;
How soon our life here
Grows old with the year
That dies with the next December!

is pivoted at the ends and weighted at
the bottom so that it will mainUln an
