The death of Nicholas Stevens re lieved the authorities of a troublesome task, for in his case something would have had to be done. The chief object was the recovery of the money, and as that had been very simply accomplished the governor him self thought it was better to draw the veil over the exposures which the dis covery of Barrett's papers revealed. The officials surmised that the con fidential servant had arranged for his unknown ally to get into the treasure room, and that afterwards at the ceme tery a dispute had arisen about the division of the plunder and murder had been the result The man whom Captain Fox had seen was, of course, the robber and doubtless the slayer of Barrett, but he was unknown.

She had dropped in upoa the newly-married Mrs. Sandford, and was seated in the comfortable attitude of conversational matronhood.with one glove off, her veil (which she called, a " fall ") just raised above her nose, and a glass of wme directly in her litie of vision.
