[By Special Arrangement.- Copyright ALMOST A TRAGEDY, By RODERICK SCOTT. "Kate, you can't mean it?" the young man cried, looking into her ejes, bewildered, be- seechingly. This is only a joke, Kate, surely? Have I not loved youso long? Have you not known of it? Tell me it is all a joke." It is not, Will," she said, a litle frightened at the passionate demand. "We have been good friends, Will; let us remain like that." "Friends!" he cried furiously, then suddenly regaining control of himself—"Ah, Kate! you can't mean this. Surely you can't cast me off like this." "I have told you the truth. Will. I can't marry you. I am engaged to Dr. Morton." Him!" cried Will Fernditjs. A newcomer— scarce a year in Ashurst; and I have been your slave for four years and more! By-" Kate Templar put up her hand imperiously fo" silence. "Look here, Will," she said quickly. "I am sorry for you; 00.1; please don't forget your- self, or I will leave the room." Fern dice's eyes' gleamed angrily at the worda, but, biting his lips, he strove to repress hi-, rage. Ah. you are a cruel woman, Kate," he said; (ruel as a tiger." That ie not complimentary," she said coldly. "Complimentary, no!" he retorted rapidly. "Do I feel in the mood for com pi imams, when the light of the day has gone out? It is easy for you to cast me off like this. You care nothing, and never did care seemingly. Can't ycu see what it means for me? I have been your slave for years; have followed you about like a dog ready to do your bidding; and this—this is my reward." "I am sorry," she said slowly, her face a little sad. Had I known tha" You would hare rejected him," he cried, eagerly, and joyously, "No," she retorted. "Never that; but I might have warned you earlier." Bah!" he answered with a muttered curse. his dark face growing suffused with rage. "You have broken my heart, Kate Templar; but-but I'll make you suffer, too. Do you think I'll stand aside and see you marry this man? Do you think I Will Fern dice, another word, and I'll leave the room," said Kate angrily. If you dare to talk to me like that, I'll never speak to you again." Again the young man struggled with the tempest of his emotions, and gradually recovered himself. Under the swarthy skin the blood seemed to ebb until it turned a sickly hue. "1-1 beg your pardon, Kate," he said brokenly, "I did not mean what I said." Good-bye," she answered, quietly holding out her hand. He took it in both of bis. And this is to be the end," he said hoarsely. Won't you think again, Kate, before I go?" No, no," she cried impatiently. Good-bye, then, Kate," he said slowly. If you will not have me for a lover you will let me be your friend, sun, won't you?" Gladly," she replied, if you won't be—be foolish." "No; I swear I'll behave myself," he said, as he turned away and left the house. As he rode through the streets of Ashurst Will Ferndice kept up the mask of calmness. Once clear of the house, however, he lashed his horse into a mad gallop. Oaths and incoherent threats flew from his lips as he raced blindly along; curses and imprecations were shouted aloud, so 'twas well for him none witnessed his madness. By-and-bye he grew calmer. "She thinks I'm to be cast off like that," he muttered. "I've tricked her into believing that I've lost all hope—tricked her, ay, and not for the last time. I'll not let her go with- out a fight. I never knew I loved her so madly till now. She shall be mine, no matter what mud I've to wade through in the getting of her." He pulled his horse into a canter, and, with compressed lips and knitted brows, surveyed the case candidly and coldly. "There seems little hope for me," he said at last. "I must find some way to separate them. How I know not yet, but I'm not a man to be afraid of that. Hitherto I've been a gentleman, but now fair methods must be thrown aside. She shall never marry that man." He turned off the highway, and, riding up to the half-farm-half-mansion house that formed his home, dismounted and strode into the house. "You've returned early, Will," said a young lady, looking up languidly from the book she was reading. He growled out a surly reply to his sister's remark, and threw himself down in a chair by the window. She looked at him wonder- ingly. "What is wrong with you to-day, Will?" asked Marge after a long pause. "Everything's gone wrong," he answered sullenly. "Has you fair one proved unkind?" she asked teasingly. "Worse than that," he retorted, looking at her first with anger and then with something approaching to malice, as a thought flashed through his mind. 11 Worse than that, Will?" ehe asked. "What do you moan?'' She's engaged to be married," he answered curtly. "To whom?" asked Madge Ferndice, now thoroughly interested. "To Dr. Morton," replied Will, brutally, and laughing bitterly as he saw her wince. "So you re hit by the same stroke, too, are you ? he added roughly. 1 she -add siowly. "What makes you think tha??-? ??- "? ?- T°» Come! don't play with me," he eaid. "Let us be frank for once. I've been fiung over by Kate, and you-well, Marge, if ever I saw a woman in love it was you, and in love with this doctor, too." Well," she 6aid, ooldly, her lips as white as the wisp of a handkerchief she was wipmir them with. "Don t keep on saying 'well,' he retorted irritably. If you don't care to help me and yourself, say so at once. If you are willing to let this girl take away your lover, say so. If you are not, then let us join hands for oom- mon defence." She looked at him from under halfped eyelids. Are you going to submit to be robbed?" she asked. "No. I'm not!" he cried. And do you think I'll sit ca.lmly under the same operation?" she asked harshly. Then you will help me to break off this engagement?" "That I will," she answered hardily, her eyes beginning to flash with animation. Point out the road, Will, and trust me to follow." There must be no going back," Will said warmngly. "Once we begin the battle we must fight it out; do you hear, Marge?" You can trust me for that," she retorted, pacing up and down the room now im- patiently. Will looked at her gloomily, then said: 11 It's not going to be a fair fight, Marge. If we want to win we'll have to leave all scruples behind." Scruples!" she cried., "Scruples! What nonsence to talk of them while we might be planning our scheme. If you knew how I hate this woman who stole my lover from me JúQ would rot talk of scruples, Will Fern- dice." And yet you and she have always been great friends," he said. "Up till now," she replied. "She has be- trayed me." Nonsense," retorted Will, cynically. "Mor- ton was never neally your lover." He would have been," Marge answered angrily. "Oh, how blind I have been. How cunningly and in secret have they courted." "Well, you'll have to keep friendly with her yet," replied Will. We must do all in our power to hide our double disappointment. so that we may be able to get at them easily." "But how?" That must depend on our luck," replied Will. PART II. I Ashurst was a small county town devoid of any manufacture. Its inhabitants were mostly people belonging to the well-to-do classes, so that there was a considerable amount of social intercourse. When Dr. Morton had come to the town a year before, quite a wave of excitement crept over Ashurst, but that soon quieted down when it was discovered that the new doctor neither played tennis nor danced, and that he preferred his books to any society that the place might provide. In spite of his disinclination to join in the general gaiety of Ashurst, Dr. Morton did not by any means become a recluse after the day's work was over, and he had found time to fall in love with Kate Templar, and, still more wonderful to relate, had found favour in her sight. Before he discovered how well he loved Kate, Dr. Morton had certainly liked Miss Ferndice, and had paid her more attention than was his wont. It was against this unsuspecting pair that brother and sister were scheming. Ferndice's hot blood had suggested methods popular a hundred years ago. Prudence had compelled him to relinquish these and resort to more refined proceedings. It was a boast of his that he had studied human nature, and with vindictive coolness he began for the first time to put these studies to an unfair use. "We must strike here," he said to Marge. He won't be able to follow her about much, and he plays tennis like an elephant, while she is the orack lady player of the Ashurst team." But what good can that do?" Marge asked despondently. "Can't you see, if we are able to make him jealous, he's too proud to protest. Once let us get in the thin end of the wedge, trust me to keep driving it in." Soon Dr. Morton began to feel the effects of this device, for, although Kate was still as affectionate as ever, he saw her less often, as her time was so taken up with tennis matches. There was none to advise her, for her aunt, with Whom she lived, was quite as pleasure- loving as herself. Once, when Morton com- plained laughingly of his rival at tennis, Kate retorted that if he was so amxious to see her he knew where to find her. But I don't play tennis," he answered. "Why not?" she retorted. "Is it poo childish for your dignity?" "Kate," he said, remonstrating. Oh, Diok, you know what I mean," she replied, laughingly. Do come down and I'll teach you." And Dick went, playing into Ferndice's hands, for, as the latter had said, he played like an elephant. At first Kate had merely enjoyed his awkwardness, but when ahe saw the spectators laughing (chiefly, although she knew it not, at Will's caustic criticisms of Dick's play) she grew irrita/ble. Stop, Dick," she called out at last, "you'll never learn. A child would play better than you do." "Nonsense, Kate; let's continue," said Dick cheerily, but Kate only flung aside her racquet, and left him standing gazing after her. That night Ferndice escorted her home, and Dr. Morton, in the seclusion of his study, won- dered upon the ways of women. He felt rather annoyed at her, but resolutely put the feeling aside. Still it would keep intruding itself, as day after day passed and Kate con- tinued to be engrossed in tennis. Whenever he looked in at the tennis courts it was gene- rally to find her playing with Ferndice, or the two sitting in the shade to rast after a game. The climax was somewhat hastened by a well-meaning friend advising the doctor to look out for a rival. "That man Ferndice would be glad of the chance to jump into your shoes, doctor. He's a determined fellow, and-" "Thank you," replied the doctor, frigidly. The shaft rankled, however, and with it still in the wound he ventured to ask Kate that night to neglect her tennis a little. "Why?" said Kate. "Don't you approve of it?" "r don't disapprove of it," replied Dick. "Only-" "Well, Dick?" "Only I don't-lilo-to see you-so-inuch with Mr. Faradis* j "Poor old Will," Kate answered. "Pool- old me, rather," said the doctor.. quickly and angrily. "I didn't know that you were given to jealousy, Dick," replied Kate laughingly. I don't think I am naturally a jealous man," returned the doctor 6tiflly; and, though nothing more was said, yet both felt. either too much or too little had been uttered. That Saturday the big match at Ardtaen came off, and the Ashurst club set off for the long drive in the common out convenient break. Ferndice drove in his dogcart, taking his sister with him, and both were busy plot- ting. Will and Kate were playing together against the best couple of the Ardtaen team, and Kate wad anxious to win, for on the result of their games depended in a great measure whether the Ashurst team would win oc lose. "We must win, Will," she said determinedly, as they met on the court. From the very beginning unaccountable de- lays occurred in their games before starting, aad this was increased by the treraetndotu quantity of "vantage in" and vantaga outs" which took place—so much so that they still had three games to play long after the others had finished. I wish they would hurry," some of the Ashurst team began to mutter. It will he all hours before we get home. The break has been waiting quite a. long time already." Couldn't they come afterwards? Ferndice has his own trap with him," said another. "I shouldn't mind coming in the break, and giving Kate my seait in the dogcart," replied Marge. "But don't let us tell them," she a.dded. "It might apoil their game to be flurried; and we must pull off this match." And so it was settled, without further pre- amble, and much to the astonishment of Kate, when, later on, flushed and excited, she looked around for the rest of the team. She took her seat in the dogcart, however, with few misgivings, for Ferndice declared they would. OOOn overtake the dthers. The break, however, was far in advance, and arrived in Ashurst long before them. Dr. Morton was waiting to escort Kate home, and, though he betrayed little emotion, he was furiously angry when Miss Ferndice took him aside and explained that Kate was driving home with Will. "They ought to have overtaken us," she said vexedly. I most wait here for him, afl I cannot go home alone. It's getting so late, too," she added quietly. Shall I accompany you?" Dick wae oom- pelled to answer. Thank you so much, Dr. Morton," Marge replied gratefully. We're sure to meet them on the way to our house." All the way home Miss Ferndice laid herself out to meet his mood, gently condoling with him. but so gently that he could not feel irri- tated at her, but all the more furious at Kate's imprudence. Just as they neared the house they heard th-j wheels of the dogcart on the road, and after a little it drew up alongside of them. When Kate saw Dick she grew a little paler and stepped out of the machine. "Thanks so much. Will," she said lightly. Dr. Morton will eee me safely home. Good- night." The two walked for a little while in silence, and then Dick said abruptly: This must really cease, Kate; I cannot have you driving alone at all hours of the night with that man." That man?" asked Kate ooldly. "Who dc) you mean?" Your late escort." Has he not a namè?" Well, Mr. Ferndice. since you insist on it,* retorted Dick angrily. Don't you think you are a little hasty, Dick?" she said quietly. "You know that I had nothing to do with making the arrange- ment. The games were not-" Kate, listen to me," said Dick quickly, I don't accuse you of anything, and; "Really that is very good of you, Dick," she said, rather bitterly. It :is a pretty word f4 speak to me. Aocuse!" Sinoe yo• are intent in putting me in the wfcong," replied Dick ooldly, it would be idle of me to try and further explain myself." "As you think," she answered slowly, vexed with herself, with him. but most of all at the ill fate which had made the quarrel possible. They talked polite nothings until they came to Kate's, home, and parted politeJy aaa coldly. That night Kate cried herself to sleep, p.nd oould only find comfort in the hope that- Dick would return to her next day. However, the days went past, and still ik* Dick. Proud as Lucifer, he waited for a sign of repentance from her. She, woman-like,, grew gayer as t.he days passed, and the more furious with him as she began to observe the emiling whisperings of the ladies at the dub. They think he has thrown me over," sh& muttered, and because oif that night." During this time Ferndice played his cardez well. Whenever Kate wanted a companion he was by her side—quiet, melancholy, unobtru- aive, ready to do her will. Almost without words he gave her to understand that he knew how matters stood, a,nd of how he despised a love tha.t would change so quickly- and with so little cause. This was the state of matters when one day Dr. Morton rode slowly up the Long Hill, aa that portion of the highway was called which circled round the quarry. Devil's Hill some termed it, for it had an evil reputation with farmers driving home late at night from the market and unco happy." The Long Hill was nearly a mile in length and a steep descent all the way. Many a. quick sweep did it take, but the worst of all the turns was half-way down, when, after a straight steep dip of a quarter of a mile, the road swerved sharply round. Almost at right angles, on the outside was the wall of the bottom quarry, a sheer fall of over a hundred feet, and nothing stood between the road and the fall save a timber fencing. On the inside the hill rose perpendicular. Half-way up the straight Dick heard the report of a blast in the upper quarry, and in a few moments he saw a dogcart swerving round a turn at a hideous speed. "A runaway!" he said, a43 he clutched ult, the reins lying loose on his horse's back. The dogcart was in the straight now, the horse, mad with fear, galloping downwards to destruction. "It can never turn the corner," muttered Dick, as he watched it coming towards him. Then his heart stood still, for in the dogcart was Kate, white and rigid. Beside her was Will Ferndioe, and as he watched he saw the latter drop the reins and begin to clamber over the back of the seat. "The hound!" cried Dick, furious at the cowardice of the man who had come between his love and him. Spurring his horse- a great, upstanding waler, ugly as sin; but with a rare turn of speed—he galloped towards the advancing dogcart. When within fifty yards of it he wheeled round, and as it passed be spurred and lashed his horse in pursuit. It was a break- neck ride, and the corner was fatally near. Keeping as close to the side of the trap as its swerving would permit, he called on Kate to be ready. julnp when I tell you," he cried, and, in spite of her terror, he saw that the bra.ve lass waa ready to do his bidding. Clutching hold of the rail, she rose to her feet and waited. He seized a moment when the trap was running straight, and drew his waler in at the peril of his neck. New," he yelled, reaching out towards her. She sprang, and for one awful instant he feared that she had sprung short. Then her weight came full upon him, almost hurling him from the saddle. Crouching low and catching frenziedly at the lithe form, he managed to keep his seat and support her. Catoh on to my neck," he cried quickly, and, with hands thus partly freed, he brought the waler to a halt. A crash, the shrill neigh of a horse in terror, the rending of tinkers, and yet again the echo of a heavy fair from the depths under- neath, all told their tale. "Dick! Dick" cried the terrified girl in hia arms. Hn&h, dear," he said soothingly. Oh, Dick," and, clinging to him, Ka.te hiJ her face in his breast. It's all rigM now, sweetheart," he said, quietly, puttinT an arm around her. And he?" There he is," said Dick, turning the walei round and pointing to a torn and tattered specimen of humanity limping miserably away. He—he left me—the coward!" she cried. Then, in the same breath, but in quite a dif- ferent tone, ehe added Oh, Dic.k. how could you leave me to him." "Then you did not want him, dear?" asked Dick gently, and the answer must have been satisfactory, in the light of after events. As for Ferndice, he crawled homewards, and vrda met by Marge at the door. Will, what has happened, and where ia Ka!te?" What has happened?" he said bitterly. Just this. I turned coward, and she--she has gone with a better man." Who?" "Need you ask?" he retorted. [THE BNDJ TO-MOSREOW VIOLET IVEMOlqS DILElCttA," by; MAEY H. TENNYSON.
