..CHAPTER XXIV. A CLUE FROM THE TOWERS. Charteris seemed to be bound by a spell that lie could not break. For several minutes lie did not move. His breath came hard, and he listened in nervous dread and expectation. His eyes peered wildly. about the sombre, murder-haunted room. At length,with a shudder he straightened his bent ! form. i "It was an accident," he muttered, | lmlf-aloud. "I could not help it j I-Icaven knows I did not mean to kill j him. He threatened me with his pis i tol, and I had to get the better ol | liini by strategy or divide the spoils. | And he would have taken the more i valuable part." j With sudden resolution, he picked ; up the lantern and crept to the brink i of the well. He knelt beside it and j gazed down into the- chill, damp ; depths, flashing the light below him., j The yellow rays did not penetrate | far ; they revealed only a few feet of | the flinty wall, glistening..with mois : ture, and eaten bj the teeth of time.

"Relics of the past," said Char teris, ?with a touch of reverence in his tone. "Links that form a thrill ing story, which needs no words to tell it. Yonder hole is a well. It' probably dates back to Norman days and was retained '?and utilised-very wisely -by the Charteris who first built the Towers. The house must have withstood a siege at an earlier period than the wars of King and Parliament. If these dumb weapons could" only speak ! This was probab ly the top floor of a tower then. Here the gallant defenders held out, firing down on the besiegers from loop-holes and battlements, and get ting their supply of water from the well with yonder lead-weighted pails. I can. almost picture the scene" "Your ancestors," interrupted the worthy Trent, with a grim smile,. > "moist have been a gri...

Again and again he plunged his /lands into the glittering mass, claw ing and fondling itT holding it up and -.letting it drop ; the sound was music to liis ears Charteris looked on half contemptuously, lialf-uneasily for a moment, and then he' quietly pushed his companion aside. He replaced the strings of gems, the brooches, and other ornaments in the chest, and fitted the lid on as tightly as it would go. He rose to his feet, and Trent did the same.
