Mr. Carmichael said he knew of a

Jacksonville that could be bought
very cheap, and he was authorized to
go to Jacksonville and make the best

It was decided to add a small per percentage

the money in a fund to pay for the

is not worth rebuilding. It is ob obsolete

Ocala," Fla., Dec. 15. Of the thou thousands

'half way between the two places, a
'few hundred yards south of the road
is a place where some the most stir stir-Jring
Jring stir-Jring scenes in the early history of
j Florida were acted.
j Shortly after taking possession of.
f Florida, in 1820, the United States
srovernment built a chain of forts
; across the reninsula from St. Augus-
tine to Tampa. In these forts were
established garrisons intended to keep
the Indians in order. One of these
strongholds. Fort King, was in the
most populous part of the Indian ter territory,
ritory, territory, now Marion county, forty miles
south of the home of Miccanopy, king
of the Seminoles, and in the hunting
grounds cf Osceola, who became the
most famous warrior of the nation.
' Fort King was a stockade with a
block house at each corner, on a hill
about three miles west of Silver
Springs, and about the same distance
east of the present site of the Ocala
ccurt house. It was the most impor important
tant important station between St. Augustine
and. Tampa and had the largest garri-
son. it received most oi its supplies
by way of the Oklawaha river and
Silver Springs, then almost a century
ago recognized ,by the government as
a navigable stream.
Here on Christmas day, 1835, the
Seminole war began. The oflker in
command had treated Osceola with
unnecessary severity, making him a
prisoner and keeping him forseveral
d?ys in chains. When the proud sav-

age was released, he naturally sought
revenge at the first opportunity. It

Arthur Stanley.
As Vivian arrives and after Lake
left Smythe has called and has been
admitted. Flushed with wine and en enlivened
livened enlivened with drugs. Arthur is wild and
boastful. Smythe produces a newspa newspaper
per newspaper and speaks of the circus tragedy
and recovery of the great diamond.
"Suddenly Arthur dashed down his
wine glass and stood erect.

"It is the diamond from the sky!"
he cried. "I will buy it at the auction.
If you are the lawyer of the Earls of
Stanley, listen: I am the earl! I am not
John Powell, but Arthur Stanley of
Stanley hall!"
Blair and Durand and De Vaux. who
were present; started in surprise at
this announcement. The lawyer's jaw
dropped, he stepped back a pace and
fell backward over his chair.
Just then the servant announced that
a rough fellow was at the door who
demanded to see Mr. Powell and Mr
Blair Stanley.
The party left the library and cross crossed
ed crossed to the door. Luke had followed the
butler in! and Blair and Durand with-

', out ado seized the gj'ps.v and thrust

him out.
A policeman was waiting, and Luke,
struggling and protesting, was thrown
into an automobile and taken to the
station house, the others going along
as complaining witnesses.
At the station house Luke, strangely
silent now, was searched.
A claspknife and some silver coin
were all that was found upon him. and
then the policeman fished from an ob obscure
scure obscure pocket a small, creased, stained
slip of paper. It was a broken manila
band, such as are put around packages
of banknotes, printed on it -were the
words:

Over the heads of those closest to
him Luke glanced fixedly at Arthur,
who blanched and trembled. It was a

bis young mistress band and kissed It.
while contrite tears 'rolled down his
bronzed cheeks. Briefly he explained
what had happened.
"There Is but one thing to do." said
Esther. "Tell the truth. I am tired

"No. Miss Esther." said Luke huski huskily;

"There is only one course to follow,
my poor Luke." said Esther gently,
"and that is the open and truthful
course."
"Do not mix up in this,", replied
Luke earnestly. "Go back to Ilagar
and ask her to forgive me and forget I

Luke's determination and contrition
were so evident that Esther made no
further attempt to change his mind.
She invoked a blessing on the rugged
gypsy and left him. convinced his loy loyalty
alty loyalty to her and Hagar was what it bad
been before money greed had led Luke
to evil courses and companions.
'""
At the circus the auction was on.
Arthur and his quondam friends were
there; also, gloved and as though just
from a bandbox, the old beau. Homer
Graydon. Vivian divided her smiles
impartially.
The tents, the animals, the circus
equipment generally, brought a few
listless bids and went at paltry sums.
Then came the event xf the sale, the
one valuable asset, the great diamond.
"How much am I offered, gentle gentlemen?"
men?" gentlemen?" cried the auctioneer.
"Ten thousand dollars!" cried Arthur.
"Mr. Powell bids $10,000!" cried the
auctioneer gayly. "Wlat else do I
hear?"
"Fifteen thousand!" shouted Homer
Graydon.
There was a buzz of excitement as
