could not forgot or banish tho romom

mist of pain that blinded his sonsos to
ovory hardship and his oyes to ovory
poril, woro yot not doop enough or
donso enough to blind thom to this
ono memory, to covor with oblivion
this ono lovo.
As ho paced to and fro in that mo
notonous march, ho bont his hond and
a low groan cscapod his lips. .;
"To forgotP" ho implored. "OIj
Godl for ono hour to forgot!"
In an Instant all thought of duty
escaped him, tho vigilant eyes no
longer swopt tho horizon, tho kcon
oars grow deaf to all but tho dull,
agonlzcn boating of a heart that folt it
Would novor ngaln find rest or pcaco

that trance of pain, that short forgot

Tho hoofs of roaring chargers
struck at thom on ovory sldo,
tho clash of swords and

Plorro Loroux had boon sovoroly

passing uround him, ho lay through
out tho long weary day. Pain hold him
powerless, his strong framo lay bruis

Unfnmlllur volcos sounded in his oars,
but ho had no consciousness of tholr
words. Weak with loss of blood, diz
zy and faint with tho oxhaustlon of
long fasting und incessant fatigue, bo
ho lay, wondering dimly If death was

for so long.
If his captors had beon ns raorclloss

but with a certain rough kindness and
