[ALL BIGHTS RzaMVBD ] THE MYSTERY OF BEACON HALL BT L Q. REDMONO-HOWARD, 'Aathof of John Rcdmond (A Biography). In the Dafl of Parnell" (A Novel). 6tc. The name of "Braceford wao upon every tip, and the sound of the. shot in the dark- ness had sounded iu their ears almost like the crack of doom. Each one aeemed to have grasped the object nearest to hand, one seizing an old tword, one an axe, from the sets of armour upon the walls, and yet t another a common poker from the nreph.ce. ] Depford Hope felt bound to addreM them. 'I for he could see anxiety written in every feature, and they seemed to pre'i forward around him. too shy !o ask t')i' a" word of advice and reassurance, but hardiv tt'0 -.hy to look for it.

"I muat beg you to calm yourselves. There has been no harm done. I was nred at by this strange intruder, but the shot missed me, though it pa.ss?d close to me and my assistant. "You have no do'tbt heard about Brace- ford,'and you imagine ycur?etves justified in believing that the mysterious visitor and ho are identical. That 1 will find out for you. and in the meanwhile you may rest assured that personally you are safe. There was a visible change upon their faces, as if of gratitude, and thanking him in a body they diaperMd. "That reassured the:)).

"Yes. sir, rather," replied Dilmot, as ho took Hope towards the study. ti,,ok 11 l'o'r you, I think I'l)' go straight to my room for a few minutes," he said, and, taking Pat with him, he led the way, now somewhat familiar to him, and switching on the electric light proceeded to ring the bell for the hot water with which to wash him- self previous to supper. "There is one thing I want to say to you -I don't like this place, there is something uncanny about it." "I have to-day Pranged, though quite against my usual principles, to have a de- tao(,Ument of -4Mt,ecttvè8 armed about each. entrance to the park, because t. fear that. this man—I will not call him Braceford— contemplates a coup, and I wish to be ready for any emergency, though my Engliaa sporting instincts urge me to catch tht villain alive and single-h-anded.

''Something tells me that the men will ae.>PM "Thank you. air," aaid the butler, examin- mg it, and then replacing it once more in the pocket. "Tell me, are you used to Srearma?" said Depford Hope, drawing from his own pocket a. small automatic pistol of the same bore as the pearl-handled revolver, but more of the Mauser type in shape. "No, sir," replied Dilmot. "I don't think I ever used anything but a rook gun in all my life." Then you will find that the revolver kicks up when you Bre, and that conse- quently, unless your hand is very steady, you miss your aim." "I've heard so." "In that ease, you would be far safer with my automatic pistol in case we are attacked to-night." "Do you think so, sir*" "I'm certain you would. Look, thi-' is the way to use it," and the detective pro- ceeded to explain the mechanism in and, having done so to Diimct's satisfac- tion, proceeded to excbarge weapons. Having done this. he lay back comfortably in his chair, lighting' a nne cigar which he produced from his case. "Now, what are your suggestions for to- night, Dilmot? he begu, as if seeking the advice of the old servant. "Weh. sir, it's not for me to advise," be- gan the other 1 want your advice, or 1 should not ask for it, Dilmot," replied the detective, in a tone of seriousness which showed that he was in earnest. "Well, what I should advise would- he this it's no good, as you said, going to seek danger by following thift man all over the park. because he could nip us off in the bud, so to speak, before we could get' anywhere near him."

Th<' butler, replied with an affirina.! ¡ve nod of the head. The moon had bv this time arisen, and the darkness of the night had consequent )y paMcd. It wuu)d have been possibie, in- deed, to distinguish a man at a. distance of several hundred yard- so that the former decision of abandoning the hunt for the prowler cou]d be with benefit reconsidered. "I want you to be ready in ten minutes. Dilmot. to accompany me for a tour of the park. Clothe yourself warmly, mind, for we may be out several hours. The man looked rather surprised, but ob-ved witlioat word. ''You can meet me on the terrazv," were Hope's last words as the butter disappeared hurriedly to change. When he 's ak'ne the detective aban- doned him.-elf to reflection as he waa wont. No honest man has 'something dishonest abf':tt the eyes: an honest man, in other words, is one who can Iwk one straight in the face. Aguiu a.nd aga.in had Hope noticed a peculiar side glance in this old house ser- vant. He could have staked his life in fact that more knowledge was in that head than ever parsed the portals of those Ups, but it is one thing to believe a man a criminal and another to prove him such; and with Hope it was a. principle that not only would he find out the crime, but he would even discover the motives. In this case almost everything oxcibed his Nuspicioaa; hardly anything enlightened h!s mind; eo that ]t was aimply that wonderful instinct of his which he trusted infallibly. Why, for example, was this man ou almost every occasion trying to insist upon the dangers to be feared from "Braceford." and at the same time not go'ng to those who could give him the strongest security, namely, the police, instead of calling upon himoelf?

REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONSI
REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. I "THE WELSH OUTLOOK. I Iho memory of St. David, the Patron Sadnt of Wales, was honoured in every way by his devoted people in all parts of the world on "his day." The pub- lishers of ''The Welsh Outlook" issued a special illustrated number to mark the occasion, and it is in every respect one of the best numbers yot published. Capitally illustrated, well written, ex- cellently arranged, and brilliantly edited. "The Welsh Outlook" this month (3d.' should appeal to every Welsh patr-r;,t. Articles appear deaJmg with a wide range, of national questions, in- cluding "The Patriotism of the Welsh Department" (Richard Roberts); "True and False Nationalism'' (Zimmem): and "My People" (Principal Ivor John). The number is freely illustrated. the portraits including Mazzini, Thos. Da vis. Sir Horace Plunkot.t, Sir 0. M. Edwards, Cedrog. Mynyddog, Gwilym Hiraettiog. Sir Hugh Owen, Grund- tarig. and other celebrities past and present. "I wish you unbounded suc- cess with the magazine." writes a reader of the ''Welsh Outlook" in the United State-s. Mr. Alfred T. Davies recom- mends ,the schools to devote half an hour on the first Monday in every month to explaining to the children some of the .principal aspects of the larger pat- riotism which they need to learn. This number of "The Welsh Outlook" should be of help to teachers and aen.Ior scholars in this connexion. The brief bio- graphies of famous nationalists and poets should be read aloud by the scholars and expounded by the teacher. Similarly with the stirring storle-s of I Italy, Denmark, Poland, the Balkans, ar
