On tho ovoning of tho murdor, Davis
was visiting at his aunt's about ono milo

Ho was standing or sitting bil'oro tho

if you got out ol that wagon."
'Ihnt's just to my hand," rospondod
Kood ; "1 don't enro if 1 do tuko a little of

Kood accordingly got out of tho wagon
and facod JJavls. Tho two woro soon on

Davis to get up.
"I prcsumo you nro satisllod now," snid
totid, nnd turned his back nr.d started to

Davis who was prosont ut tho fight, "he's

Hood turned nround to faco Ins untiwo-

blmlo of tho knifo into hli heart,
"You d d coward I" was nil that l!uod

Davis was arrested, but hihiId his oseapo.

To a i l, particularly invalids, spring is
