Wtdima Bourl, for a few weeks, had enjoyed oonatderable re- pose; keeping up her connection only with a few of her seleot enstqmers whose pooketa she knew could well bear the heavy drainage to which she subjected them. She also derived con- siderable Income by the sale of -her figure to photographic art- ists, who In their tarn made large earns by the disposal of copies of the hendeqm'e Louise In a state of nudity—snob plotares be- ing eagerly ran after by fast young men, end old ones, too, and found oonsDlcuous places on the taHa of disreputable nausea. ' in'her elegant little chamber lay Madame Bourl lnallthe beauty of admirable dfenaWBr.whfle by her side reclined the form of a hoary-headed old sinner, no other than Mi. Blehardaon. the Mb^o/f*tnli»^ garrotting propensities, wrapped In. slumber, neither aware, shortly after midnight, of the preaenoe of a third' who had found bis way Into the room, and with curioaa'ejes Wis suln'ir on them.'

Bl<4 could not help laughing at the miserable appearanne of the wretch as he ordered him to lamp out, and aided him conWdarsbly In hit exit from the bed by a Jerk whloh'depoalted him In the middle of'the floor, when he got down upon his knees and,, in- piteous aoeents, begged for his life; Bat It was no part of . Bill's polloy, to hurt him, so he looked him np In a closet, aa he was, warning Unvuader penalty of death, not to make.the slightest noise, and then turned his attention to Madame Bourl, who though dread fully alarmed knew better than to areato.a disturbance. 1 .

And BUI enjoyed himself for half an hour with Louise, muoh to the disgust of Mr. Blobardson who, by applying hla eye to the keyhole, could witness all that went on, and then disappeared as mysteriously aa he had come. .

He mentally Jotted down his missing watch and money to bis profit and loasao- oount, and got aa quickly out of the house as he posalbly could. : Aooordlug to arrangement, Madame Bourl, who waa bewildered byBlll'a request and .knew not what to make of It, Informed her domeatloa. that she was about to leave town for a far da;a; .and-to .Rive color to. her statement packed up a small bag wilh things she thought she might need, called a oanlage, drove to an'acquaintances where ahe spent the day; and at the appointed time was on the epot, Indicated by BUI, who there met her, and by a circuitous route conducted her to the hovel attaohel to the oavesn where Med Barton had been oonflned. .1! 0 ...HenAeart sank., within her as she entered the place, but her consternation waa lnoreesed ten fold when, opening the trap, BUlMdered-herdown.

In suite of an efforts to the contrary the story of Burton's Imprisonment had got abroad, and at last, finding that oonoealment longer was vain, he allowed, a .full aoconnt cf it to be published. BIa : wonderful' preservation did notexolte more surprise than'the fact whloh It established that Barney, the aulclde, was etui alive and rweU. : The newspapers blamed the Coroner for not harintr been more parUouIar. by having the body opened to ascertain whether-he wss really dead or not; others asserted he muet nave been bribed not to do' It, and a great many equally rtdlou-' tons atoriee were put In circulation. . , • BUI and Barney, with the pubUc, soon learned of the esoape of their Intended vlotlm; andthe former set himself to work to nhd'other means to carry out the acheme of revenge whloh stfll smonlderedin, his breast, and whloh flared up,with redoubled fury %t being defrauded of its objeot. As .already stated, they had been aware of the search of the hoveli'sut bad been warned of it in time sofflolent to enable them >to' keep'out of the war' yet such waa BUl'e hatred to Burtqn that he was almost tempted to ahow himself and finish him on the epot; but that he knew' It Iras oertaln death for himself so to expose his precious carqaaa. Now,'lowover, with Oohslderabiy niore caution than before ho renewed'bit Attention to them; and, this waa done in a very simple manner.. : Barton,'after h\s recovery from the'effects of hislongfastin* and want of fresh alr>had retttrtied to the Metoopolttah Hotel to reside;. In such a large eatabllahment there are an immanse number, of servants, many of whom are oonstantly conungsnd going. Pat Nolan by hu'lnfluenoe, which' was growing more Sbwerful every day, easily got one of Ills tools a situation aa a omaatloln the hotel; and-ehe, with more conning and rouch lau chance of discovery than a male spy, conveniently not<d everything connected with them that came under her observa- tion, and whUe'they were congratulating' themselves, on their seourlty, .waa as busy aa.ahe' oould - be reporting all they said, did, or Intended to do^.to .Pat Nolan, who, in turn, Informed BUI and Barney ot all that transpired; or was llkelyto occur. : Devoted to manly sports of-all Mnd», Burton and Oliver had. made aoquaintanoe with all the • beet-known patrons of the turf In the, .city,, and among others with, Harry Weston, wholud a gnat regard for ell hcncBt lovers of the-field, and "was well pleased to recognize in the two Englishmen men who. like him- self, abhorred everything that was not fair and above board; his house was always open to them and at hla table they were always weloome.
