The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - May 8, 1908, Kadoka, South DakotaV .lAPTER I. ¦ ie lights were extinguished ra ellings in the town of Ab- ¦ lere had been an agricul- H at the “Black Wolf,” a pic- ¦ ny-gabled inn, which stood B western entrance of the un- B church. It was a ghostly B h its wide window places, high H s, odd three-cornered rooms, to -es, and unsuspected cupboards. ' JtolL -ayton, the present landlord, had it from his father, who, in his inherited it from his father, again from his. In short, the Jpa.-k Wolf” had been in possession of JKe Claytons for two hundred years. It ¦vas the most comfortable inn iu Abbots- rbold. The sleeping accommodations, the •res, the cleanliness recommended it far and wide. There was a plump, motherly landlady. The guests at the dinner had departed, aave two, and those two sat each on a low, lounging chair before a brilliant fire. Baskets and plates of choice fruit, hot- house flowers in great china vases, yet re- mained on the long table. " '-x Both of the lingering guests were young; each was singularly handsome. The elder was fair, with golden mustache, light curling hair, a finely cut mouth, a ¦freight profile, large blue eyes—quite an Aaonis of the blond order. Anybody who understood the signs and distinctions *f the various spheres of society could divine at a glance that this gentleman belonged to the upper classes. Aristoc- racy was set upon him like a seal, from the crown of his handsome head to the soles of his well-fitting boots. Notwith- standing. there was a daring in his man- ner, a look in his bold blue eyes which ¦poke eloquently of the life of the man of the world. He smiled at bls com- jyanion as he said: “Tell me your history, life and adven- -tures, expectations, ambitions, loves and hatreds. Now is your time. I am just tn the mood for a good love story. I am •the most romantic fellow in the world.” The other young man had deep-set gray -•yes, luminous and full of earnest pow- er. His complexion was brown, his fea Cures nobly cast. A black mustache con- cealed the short upper lip, but the lower one and the chin were molded as by a Greek sculptor. He was tall, an athlete, wiry, muscular. Keen intelligence inin- ,-gled with romantic fervor. Here was a powerful brain, a fervid imagination, a most passionate heart. He looked down at his boots—rather worn boots, if the truth must be told; for Lionel I-eu-h was poor; a teacher of for- ctga languages and classics iu n»- town of Abbotshold and the villages surround- ing. The remuneration he received w«s ¦mail, except in one or two Instances. He was fonder of art and knowledge than of dress. All his spare went for books and engravings. It wt.s understood that he proposed reading for a degree, and he was lookefi upon in that country district with a species of wonder, mixed with a half-contemptuous pity. “I do not believe in your capacities for romantic feeling,” said Lionel. “There is so >much of the cynic about y»ti, and you are' materialistic, and pleasure lovng, and moAey loving—are you not?” “If I am.” returned the other, laugh- ing.) “I love what I haven’t got. Look here, my dear friend 1 not a cent —not the shadow ai a copper—not a mite to place tn a poor box, with the self-complaisant feeliiig that I hare given up my all 1” and the aristocratic looking young man turned out his pocket linings. “See! not even an empty purse; I ha<! one of ¦liver -ha-rework, and I was absolutely eompell-d mk send it, in the company of a ten-era $ Ihtoowy guard chain, an old ¦liver snu bdj;. and a garnet seal ring, to enjoy cLjMxtiety of that useful rela-. ,-tlve, popularlAknown by the affectionate - title of ‘uncle.’ It’s all my own fauit, rtos. How I shall pay my expenses here *t this good inn—where I have boarded and lodged at the expanse of the fatherly Clayton for a wheie fortnight—sgoodnuss •lone knows I” ( Lionel looked at his companion; his » face flushed. • -“Mr, Barrington,” he saiu, '!ynu invited tne to dine. I thought you a nan of prop- erty. I might have known th’t an earl's oousin would not have made hinself equal with a poor professor, unless he had al- •ready dropped out of his o»n sphere;” and he tendered the money. “Ungracious man!” cried tarrington. pocketing the money, notwithetanfiJng, and laughing; “but I will lnvl.e you! to ¦'riner every night for a week *on, Mid • vou everything that costs mtjiey. i ¦» rolling in wealth soon, tumbling heels in coin.

Her name is Jenny Wilkinson —not an aristocratic name, I admit. She is sev- enteen. Jenny lived with an odious old aunt in a great grim house at Hammer- smith ; there were grounds, and kitchen gardens, and a shrubbery. Miss Tabitha Kettle was the name, or, rather, is the name of the odious individual aforesaid —an old soul given to all kinds of pious exercises. Poor Jenny had a terrible time of it. There was an English gov- erness, a very she-dragon of ugliness and propriety; there was an elderly lady's maid, there was a serious butler, and a footman of the same persuasion. How to get a letter passed, I could not tell. At last I found that a tall, faded French- woman, with flashing eyes, and an air of good taste pervading her shabby-gen- teel garments, was in the habit of giving private lessons every day to Miss Wil- kinson. I lodged in the neighborhood, you must understand, and by dint of listening to gossip, I found out all about Jenny, the tall, young heiress. I went to Dr. Commons and had a look at the will, and discovered the heiress-ship to be genuine. Then I paid court to the French lady. At first she was surprised, then a little flattered, then suspicious; then we came to an understanding, and made terms. She was /to carry novels secretly into Hammond House, and Jenny was to read Them; then she was to carry a letter. After that, if Jenny proved romantic, we were to meet in a summer house in the shrubbery. All went well! novels, let- ters, meetings. Everything was arrang- ed, when, in an evil hour, the she-dragon of an English governess discovered a let- ter of mine under Jenny's pillow, wetted with the sentimental tears of the poor lit- tle creature. The Frenchwoman was for- bidden the house. I was sent for by Miss Tabitha, but I did not venture to obey the summons. 'Jenny was sent off some- where ; I never found out where until a 'fortnight ago, when I discovered, through the assistance of that indefatigable Made- moiselle Le Blanche, that St. Martha’s College, in the western Midlands, near to the- little town of Abbotshold, was the prison where my distressed damsel was confined.” ‘The girl loves you, I suppose, and is deluded into the belief that you love her. Poor child !” “Well, of course, it wns the money first attracted me; and now, even, it’s the most important point. But I do love lit- tle red-haired Jane. She isn’t ugly, if she isn’t handsome* She hns beautiful teeth, and winning ways, and affectionate eyes. I would not harm a hair of her little head for all the world.” “But when you have her money, you will set about spending it, and neglect it - She will break her heart. No; I will ne.er help man or woman to a mer- cenary inatch.” “But f tell you I love her, love her infinitely more than anybody in this wide, cold world. I declare I do! I shall spend her money', of course; but I don’t mean to waste *t.” “Did yoiu say thirty thousand a year?” “Every Halfpenny of it. I've seen the will. The (father was a stock broker — fat and vulAjar. no doubt: and the child willwant training before she Is. presented among my frjends. They’ll all notice me again when I am rich and respectable. I say. you wi(l help mo, won’t you?” “How can you ask it?” said Lionel. “I am tencher at that school. What a breach of honor tq assist one of the pupils to elope.” “Mr. Lionel Leigh, I am sorry I have trusted you. Gp.'to old Miss Pritchard and tell her what I’ve confided to you, will you?” “No,” said Lionel slowly—“No, I don’t think that would le> honorable, either.” Soon after this-the acquaintances sep- arated for the night. CHAPTER 11. ’ Lionel’s chamber ,at the “Black Wolf” was one of the ghostliest and quaintest in that quaint and ghostly inn. His one wax candle burned dimly on the high mantelshelf. Thrown up in strong relief among the shadows S as a great four-post bedstead, heavily curtnined With red dam- ask : just the kind of cjuztairis for a ghost to draw In the middli of night and wake one up, with the anrifAincement of some unsuspected, long-forgojten crime. The rain was pattering against the window, and every notv and then the voice of the wind was h'eard, rising like a la- mentation, and away in a sigh. Lionel listened ‘o the wind, and then glanced about iAto the corners of the shadowy room, i He was not afraid of ghosts, but th,j>re was an imaginative power in him, n love of the mysterious; and this veiMwas on him strongly to- night while ljP"'t w> the bed chamber ot the “Black ’ Mystery r j ’ 'rtb- Edv on th* C< moat of his pupils lived in that immediate neighborhood. Lately he had been strug- gling manfully to throw off the subtle and dangerous fascination which enthralled him; and, since the fir«t step in this wise direction is said to be to seek society and shun seclusion, Lionel no longer spent his evenings in his study with his reading lamp, his books, bis manuscripts, his pot of strong coffee, after the fashion of a would-be wakeful student. The liveliest place within access of a friendly youth—without connections or • introductions, in that proud and exclusive * little country coterie, where none were ‘ admitted unless they could bring fashion- ’ able recommendations —was the “Black Wolf.” So it happened that lately Lionel ‘ had supped at the famrite inn, listened ’ to laughter and song, and striven to for- • get a certain pair o dark eyes which j haunted him continue ly. j “It's no use,” he i luttered. “I must leave this neighborly xl. I must go j abroad." t He passed his han< over his forehead, j and then he heard d stinctly a cough— j there could be no listake —a cough, ( which the person sect led to strive to re- t prose, but which br<ke out again more ] loudly—a distinct hu: an cough, as of one t hoarse with cold. I onel stood up and t seized his candle. H held it high above, r his head, and peered into all the dark f corners of the low-cei«l room. “Nothing to be se4- It must be fan- I cy,” he muttered. “Imight think that I e had hoard a neighborbough iri an adjoin- « ing room, only it is vpll known the walls t in this old house areof such a thickness c that no sound comet from one room to s another. It must be fancy.” He undressed and put out his candle c and crept into bed; but his mind was ' too active, too busy too much peopled with fancies and pl.-uts and regrets and g vague, wild hopes,' topermlt him to sleep, j While he lay thinkig. against his will, g of those haunting eyA he distinctly heard g the cough again. I “No fancy,” said f, aloud. Then he sprang ok. and went to the t fire, and contrived | light his candle; j and he walked aboutjearefully searching. , He looked under tli bed and felt the walls. At last, whiltfcis hand was on the 1 wall, the cough camela third time behind ( j it. He struck the will. The sound was hollOW. j ’ “Hello! there is atupboard here, satd; 1 Lionel. , ' And so it proved.’ The cupboard door 1 was papered over w|h the same red vet- I vet paper as the But Lionel found < a key, turned it, ancentered a large, deep 1 closet. He fully exacted to encounter a i burglar, but the pice was empty. < lifted the candle,-rtd»-looked all rou/nd. < This Closet was nojused apparently, / for • clothes or any othe purpose. It wab an ’ empty, dark place. The walls were'cov- ered With a dull, ydow paper. I “Somebody washere,” said Lfionel. ‘There must be anther door, or a, stair- case, or ” . T' ¦ ' L . j He began to seath, but he found noth- t ing. No stairs, noecond de or. Then M came into his room andocked ‘he.i door of. the cupboard, and put the key in hi* pocket. He then went to bed, bewildered and wo»d«rin*. Soon he fell asleep, and did not awaken ti’l daylight looked in at, his window. He rose and began to dross somewhat carefully; for, after breakfast, he was to proceed at once to that house where the haunting eyes which had looked at him from the embers ln«t night shone and softened in the sweet, warm reality of life. The sublime ever touches upon the ri- diculous. Lionel dropped a cake of «oap. It fell at some distance, just at the door of that suspectai cupboard. He crossed the room, stooped to pick it np. Lo, and behold! the door was ajar. It had been forced from the inside. He rushed to the door of his room, which he distinctly remembered lacking and trying the previous night. It was not only unlocked, but ajar. Somebody, then, had succeeded in escaping while he lay sleeping- H» first thought was nat- urally of robbery, but he found his plain gold ’ watch, his purse, with its scanty supply of sliver and gold coins, untouch- ed. Nothing had been taken from his room. Was the house robbed? He looked up at the walls and wondered. There was a large ancient sampler, worked in many colored sillM afd >amed in black, hang- ing over the It had been executed by ttye mother of the present landlady, when'a child. The old-fashioned verses at the <«nd struck Lionel j;tthe moment like a warn- ing, and a premise, and a threat —all In one. ' ‘ ¦ “If thou art wise, L >ok to thy ways. Do not despise The blessed days—- “G< not to deal ; d t Folly's Fair. Th) love conceal, 1 'hou shalt be heir.” *a‘Thy love -onceal, thou shalt be heir.” Tlbpse two lines were worked in bright • et c-’*r unfaded by the lapse of j said aloud. “Should I be itate in fairyland and a pal- flouds?

The effoat to the question submitted atlthe June primary was voted down onlthe ground that it would be used as a Alub in tlpat election. The submission k-as hen fixed at a special election called for the purpose on the 12th of Mey. As the law itself provides for special elections for this purpose only whin the action of the board is taken sn 1907, there may be an after-clap to this ivhatever the decision of jhe vot- ers may be at the polls. The sarnie meeting of the board of commissioners granted a petition for county seat rel- : moval on a change from Oacoma tp i Preshjo, on which the vote will be tak-1 en at the November election. They. I also granted a petition for a vote onl; the fl ..vision of Lyman county on the' devisiln between the old survey of the I state, land the Black Hills (survey, J whiclwcuts the county almost!

If the division plan carries, Murdcpiwould more than likely be the seat o government of the new county, as it 1 a few miles of the cen- ter of tie new county and the princi- pal toWn of that territory. Whatever the outcome, Lyman county voters will have ni>re troubles than the average voter oi the state before the close of the preset campaign, with all thp dif- ferent ‘’issues” which they will be tailed upon to decide.

Dr. Creighton, an ardent lover of to- bacco, soon took out his cigar case and with a smile, said: “‘You don’t mind my smoking, I suppose?* ‘The meek, pale little curate bowed and answered hnmbly: ‘Not if your lordship doesn't 4iind my being sick.’” .\ot Ati'facted, “Are you Mme.

Then in about an hour or so a weak, nervous derangement of the heart and stomach would come over me with such force I would frequently have to lie down. “At other times I bad severe head- aches; stomach finally became affected and digestion so impaired that I had serious chronic dysi>epsia and constipa-, | tlon.

She said it was no cross to quit coffee when she found she could have as delicious an article as Postum. “Another lady, who had beeu trou- bled with chronic dyspepsia for years, found immediate relief on ceasing cof- fee and beginning Postum twice a day. She was wholly cured. Still another friend told me that Postum Food Coffee was a Godsend to her, her heart trouble having been relieved after leaving off 1 coffee and taking on Postum. “So many such cases came to tny no- tice that I concluded coffee was the range of my trouble and I quit and took ’ up postum. lam more than pleased to 1 say that my days of trouble have dis- * appeared.
