I told Croisctte, but warily, my sus-
picions of his purpose. He heard me,
less astounded to all appearance than
I had expected. Presently 1 learned
the reason. Ho had his own view.
"Do you not think it possible, Anne,"
lie suggested, timidly — wo were, of
iourfio, alone at the time—"that he
thinks to make Louis resign made-
"Resign her!" I exclaimed, obtusely.
"Jly giving him a choice—you under-
I did understand—I saw it in a mo-
ment. I had been dull not to see it
before. Bezers might put it in this
way: Let M. dc Pavannes resign his
mistress and live, or die and lose her.
"I see," I answered. "But Louis
would not give her up. Not to him!"
"lie would lose her either way," Crois-
ctte answered, in a low tone. "That is
not, however, the worst of it. Louis
is in his power. Suppose he thinks to
make Kit the arbiter, Anue, and puts
Louis up to random, setting Kit for the
price? And gives her the option of ac-
cepting himself, and saving Louis' life;
3r refusing, and leaving Louis to die?"
"St. Croix!" 1 exclaimed, fiercely,
"lie would not be so base!" And yet
was not even this better than the blind
vengeance I had myself attributed to
"Perhaps not," Croisctte answered,
while he gazed onwards through the
twilight. We were at the time the fore-
most of the party, save the vidame;
and there was nothing to interrupt our
view of his gigantic figure tus ho
moved on alone bo fore us with bowed
shoulders. "Perhaps not," Croisctte
repeated, thoughtfully. "Sometimes
I think wo. do not understand him, and
that after all there may be worse peo-
ple in the world than Dozers."
I looked hard at the lad, for that was
not what I had meant. "Worse?" I
said. "I do not think so. Hardly!"
"Yes, worse," ho replied, shaking his
head. "Do you remember lying under
the curtain in the box-bed at Mire-
"Of course I do! Do you think 1
shall ever forget it?"
"And Mine. d'O coming in?"
"With the coadjutor?" I said with a
"No, the second time," he answered,
"when she came back alone. It was
pretty dark, you remember, and Mme.
do Pavaunes was at the \\ indow, and her
Bister did not see her?"
"Well, well, I remember." I said im-
patiently. I knew from the tone of his
voice that ho had something to tell mo
about Mme. d'O, and I was not anxious
to hear it. I shrank, asa wounded man
shrinks from the cautery, from hearing
anything about that woman; herself so
beautiful, yet moving in an atmosphere
of suspicion and horror. Was it shame,
or fear, or some chivalrous feoling hav-
ing its origin in that moment when f
had fancied myself her knight? I am
not sure, for I had not made up my mind
oven now whether I ought to pity or
detest her; whether she had made a
tool of mo, or I had been false, to her.
"She came tip to the bed, you remem-
ber, Anne?" Croisetto went on. "You
were next to her. She saw you indis-
tinctly, and took you for her sister.
And then I sprang from the bed."
"I know you did!" I exclaimed sharp-
ly. All this time I had forgotten that
grievance. "You nearly frightened
her out of her wits, St. Croix. I cannot
think what possessed you—why you did
"To save your life, Anne, he an-
swered solemnly, "and her from a
crime—an unutterable and unnatural
crime. She had come back to—I can
hardly tell it you—to murder her slater.
You start. You do not believe me. It
sounds too horrible. But I could see

laboring under the shock of his friend's
murder. He was still partially stunned.
Death seemed natural and famil-
iar to him, as to one who had
seen his allies and companions
perish without warning or prep-
aration. Death had come to l>e normal
to him, life the exception; as I have
known it seem to a child brought face
to face with a corpse for the first time.
One afternoon a strange thing hap-
pened. We could see the Auvergne
hills at no great distance on our left
—the Ptiy de Dome above them—and
wo four were riding together. We
had fallen—an unusual thing—to the
rear of the party. Our road at thq mo-
ment was a mere track running across
moorland, sprinkled hero and there
with gorse and brushwood. The main
company had straggled on out of sight.
There wore but half a dozen riders
to be seen an eighth of a league before
us, a couple almost as far behind. I
looked every way with a sudden surg-
ing of the heart. For the first time

"I think not. Nay," Louis answered,
shaking his head, "you would not do
it yourself in my place."
"I think I should," I stammered awk-
"Xo, you would not, lad," ho said,
smiling. "I know you too well. But if
I would do it, it is impossible." He
turned in the saddle, and, shading his
,es with his hand from the level rays
of the sun, looked back intently. "It
is as I thought," he continued. "One
of those men is riding Gray Margot,
which Dure said yesterday was the
fastest marc in the troop. And the man
on her is a light weight. The other
fellow lias thnt Norman bay horse we
were looking at this morning. It is a
trap laid by Bezers, Anue. If we turned
aside a dozen yards those two would be
after us like the wind."

"That is the faet. Nothing would

But. thank God, only tho one is in his
And when I came to look at the horse-
men, immediately before us, they con-
firmed Louis' view. They were the
best mounted of the party; all men of
light weight, too. One or other of
them was constantly looking back. As
night fell they closed in upon us with
their usual care. When But e joined us
there was a gleam of intelligence in his
bold eyes, a flash of conscious trickery.
He knew that we had found him out,
und cared nothing for it.
And the others cared nothing. But
the thought that if left to myself I
should have fallen into the vidamc's
cunning trap filled me with new hatred
towards him; such hatred and such
fear—for there was humiliation
mingled with them—as I had scarcely
felt before. I brooded over this, barely
noticing what passed in our company
for hours—nay, not until the next day
when, towards evening, the cry aroso
round me that we were within sight of
Cahors. Yos, there it lay below us, in
its shallow basin, surrounded bv gentle
hills. Tlue domes of the cathedral, the
towers of the Vallandre bridge, the
bend of the Lot, where its stream em-
braces the town—I knew them all. Our
long journey was over.
And I had but one idea. I had some
time before communicated to Croisetto
the desperate design I had formed—to
fall upon Bezers and kill him in tho
midst of his men—in the last resort.
Now the time had come if the thing was
ever to be done: if we had not left it
too long already. And I looked about
me. There was some confusion and
jostling as we halted on the brow of the
hill, while two men were dispatched
ahead to announce the governor's
arrival, and Bure, with half-a dozen
spears, rode out jus an advance guard.
The road where we stood was narrow,
a shallow cutting winding down the
declivity of the hills. The horses were
tired. It was a bad time and place for
my design, and only the coining night
was in my favor. But I was desperate.
Vet before I moved or gave a signal
which nothing could recall, I scanned
the landscape eagerly, scrutinizing III
turn the small, rich plain below us,
warmed by the last rays of the sun, the
bare hills here glowing, there dark, the
scattered vtood-clumps and spinneys
that filled the angles of the river, even
the dusky line of holm-oaks that
crowned the ridge beyond — Caylus
way. So near our own country there
might be help! If the messenger whom
wc had dispatched to tile vicomte he-
fore leaving home had reached him, our
uncle might have returned, and even be
in Cahors to meet us.
But no party appeared in sight; and
I saw no place where an ambush could
be lying. I remembered that 110 tid
ings of our present plight or of what
had happened could have reached the
vicomte. The hope faded out of life
as soon as despair had given it birth.
We must fend for ourselves and for Kit.
That was my justification. I leaned
from my saddle towards Croisctte—I
was riding by his side—and muttered
as I felt my horse's head and settled
myself firmly in the stirrups: "You
remember what X said? Arc you
He. looked at me in a startled way,
with a face showing white in the shad
ing. It was enough for me! I cut him
short with one word of fiery indigna-
tion and turned to Marie and spoke
"Will you, then?" I said.
But Marie shook his head in perplexi-
ty, and answering little, said the same.
' So it happened the second time.
Strange! Yet strange as it seemed,
I was not greatly surprised. I'ndor
other circumstances 1 should have
been beside myself with auger nt tho
defection. Now I felt as if 1 had half
expected it„ and without further words
of reproach I dropped my head and gave
it up. I passed again into the (stupor
of endurance. The vidame was too
strong for mo. I* was useless to light
against him. We were under the spell.
When the troop moved forward, I went
with them, silent and apathetic.
We passed through the gate of Ca-
hors, and no doubt the scone wan
worthy of note; but I had only a listlesa
eye for it—much such an eye as a man
about to be broken on the wheel must
have for that curious instrument, sup-
posing him never to have seen it be-
fore. The whole population had come
out to line the streets through which
we rode, and stood gazing, with scarce-
ly veiled looks of apprehension, at the
procession of troopers and the stern
faee of the new governor.
We dismounted passively in tho court-
yard of the castle, and were for going in
together, when Bure intervened. M.
de 1'avalines," ho said, pushing rather
rudely between us, "will sup alone to-
night. For you, gentlemen, this way,
if you please."

ng on has caused ltobert Lincoln
O'Brien, a Boston newspaper man, who
is fond of "delving deep into musty
lore," to recall the days of President
Adams, the first of our chicf magis-
trates to acquire office as a party leader
and on party issues. Mr. O'Brien finds
that Philadelphia seems then, jus now,
to have been something of a political
storm center, and to have (contained a
good many citizens anxious to serve
their country for a reasonable consid-
eration. Frederick A. Muhlenberg
wanted to be treasurer of the mint, and
took pains to explain to the president
that "a series of misfortupes to a Son-
in-law of mine occasioned by frencli
Captures have affected me very ma-
terially, and being at present out of
public Employment, I have both Leis-
ure and Inclination to attend to the
duties of this or any other Office You
may think proper to honor me with,
whilst at tho seme time it would afford
me some aid in a situation I have never
been accustomed to."
Apparently, office was office with Mr.
Muhlenberg, whatever its title, for
after waiting some months he changed
his course and become an applicant for
the Philadelphia collectorship, but was
willing to accept either the naval offic-
er's or surveyor's position. Nearly three
years later, having failed in all his ap-
plications, ho appealed to President
Jefferson in like manner, attributing
his ill-success with Adams to the hos-
tility of Oliver Wolcott.
Another Philadelphia politician
spicuous at that day was the clever, but
erratic commissioner of revenue,
Tench Coxe. He was turned out of
office during President Adonis' term on
charges of political treachery to the
administration. He came back to
Jefferson with a plea that "the world
tees me yet unprovided for—yet un-
rcstorod—my old office held by him
that extruded me—the best Branch of
it given to another." He wanted that
place—or "something equally a.s good,"
ns our modern politician would put it.
He scorned anything of a dignity un-
worthy of a man of his especial merit.
The trivial appointment of u com-
missioner of Bankruptcy," he wrote,

render fruitless, will neither mo in tain

uncomfortable and inconvenient one."
