Ik rose up. and began pacing up and
down the room; ho was deeply niowd.
Fver passionate and impulsive, even
now for a moment. he was touched to
something like anger.
"Has he been to you, here?" he said,
after a moment, scarcely noticing her

"Your oath!" He set his teeth hard,
crushing down words that would have
been cruel, but when he spoke it was
btill quieilv, but perhaps a little sternly;
'Jmough lias been sacrificed to that,
Erica. It is hard to lay this on you,
but there is no help for it; in this you

She struggled for ; moment with her

that this was Hip onlv atonement she

His lip quivered and lost all its stern

her forehead with a long, lingering kiss

TO RF.T AND RKK1T.
The murder of AValter St. John was
the great sensation of the i.eason; it
was discussed in all its bearings in club
and M'oa, and the aspect of the aifa r
as a murder case was almost lost sight
of in the deeper interest excited by Unit
other aspect touching the position of
Fliilip St. John's wife.
Arnold Murray had been commit led,
and the trial was to take place in Lon
don in about a fortnight. People won

That of mistaken identity could scaro
Iv hold water, for the landlord of the

others who had known liirn there, could

I'ovnter had recognized him at once,
and Erica's momentary hesitation had
been due less to a want of instant recog
nition than to the shock of tbe change
wrought in her cousin.
Expectation was at its heiuht, and
the general feeling of the public gave
credence to Erica. The mere fact that
Philip St. John believed her. and that
she was with him now, carried a strong
moral weight with it.
Lady ( heshiint , who was a leader in
London society, had called at li e Lang
ham that very afternoon, and with a
thoughtful delicacy that touched Phil. p.
even while his haughty spirit winced at
it, begged him and Erica to come to her
during their Slav in town.

and wanted rest and quiet; and she fell

lint it was not on these that tho pub
lic eve rested unceasingly, but on the
chief actors in this strange drama on
the erect form and unrevealing face of
Philip St. John, yet more on the slender
girlish wife who had waded through a
sea of suffering, whose reputation hung
in the balance, and whose wondrous
pathetic beauty touched the hearts of

Nat Poynter came in for a share of trie
There- was u stir ns Arnold Murray
took his place in the dock, leaning
heavily against the rails, and looking
neither to the right or left.
1'hilip's eyes rested on him a moment
cold, clear, like hard steel.
There was neither flash of passion,
nor gleam of pity, in that glance, and
then he turned to answer some remark
made to him.
As for Erica, she never moved nor
gave sign that she knew the prisoner
bad entered; her eyes were drooping,
hidden by the long lashes, and she
never raised them once.
Perhaps she feared for her own power
if she sulfered her eyes to dwell on Ar
nold Murray in that felon's dock.
There was a breathless silence during
the formal question and low-uttereu
"Not guilty" of the prisoner, during the
openiimr speech of the attorney-general,
and while the landlord of the'Crown at
Kington and two others were examined
to establish the identity of the prisoner
with the Stephen Martin wdio-had
staved at that hotel: but there was a
visible stir when Nat Poynter was
called. He recounted h11 tlie story of
that night in the most simple 'and
straightforward manner, and was not
cross-examined; now and then he ex
cited a laugh by his mode of speaking
of Etira-always -'.Miss Erica least
wavs Mrs, St. John," and occasionally
Those" who bad been observing the
prisoner during the last ten minutes of
Povnter's examination, and of these
was Philip St. John, had seen him lift
himself from his leaning posture and
look round for the tirst time with just a
fleeting glance, growing more steady as
he seemed to gather courage; then that
his eves went stragiht to where Erica

;ii let ios fashion, he lo ed.
He knew that it was not her fault
that be was here, ami that something
good which is left lying at the boiiom
of all but the utterly hardened was
moved for her.
All this crowd of gaping sightseers
were gloating over the prospect of her
evidence, were waiting impatiently for
her to be called, that they might note
how she looked, and when her voice
faltered, and when her color came or
went, and a sudden gush of remorse
came over the miserable man who bail
been the curse of the girl all her life.
It might be that this new impulse was
not brn only of remorse and pity for
her there is much that breaks down
fierce feeling in the fact of a shattered
l ie bad no hope of winning; he was
not quite base enough to set up a de
fence that 6hould blast his cousin's
honor; and then, she had suffered so
much for him, that he might as well do
what he could for her. And he had a
savage delight in disappointing that
eager crowd. They should not feci

just as the counsel for the prosecution
was saviritr. "I must now call " and
expectation was at its height, he rose
up. ami addressed the judge.
Arnold glanced round with a half
contemptuous smile, and then put one
hand lo Ids forehead a second and
clenched the handrail with the other,
sick now and cold when the moment
Hut. liush! what is his counsel saving.
Evei v ear is bent to listen: and Philip
leans a little forward and draws in his
breath, and swift his glance goes to
Erica moved at last, but only a little
outwardly; her hands are looked, and
her eyes are lifted, looking straight at
His counsel is asking that the case
may be stopped, for that his client
wishes to plead guilty to the manslaugh
ter of Walter St. John, and to make full
confession of bis guilt, and begs his
lordship to hear him, as the name and
honor of others are hound up in what
he has to say.
There is lin instant's absolute hush.
Every eye is turned to the prisoner tho
central iigure in this seme once voice
cries out from the hark, "1'ravo!" and
is hushed down by the usher; then
there is a murmur, a fresh attitude of
anticipation, and again deathly silence,
while the judge confers a moment with
counsel nnd then speaks. Ami as hn
does so Philip comes round quietly to
Erica's side and stands there. He is
anxious, terribly anxious for her; for
he thinks of the "afterwards," when
the strain shall have passed.
And then Arnold lifts his head, and
a mist comes before his eves, lie
knows they are all waiting for him to
speak; listening for the words; won
dering how he will put them: whether
he is breaking down at the last. His
lips are parched and dry. and when he
tries to speak uo sound issues from
" Water -water!" ho whispers.
And a wave of pity goes through the
crowd, and the women bend forward
with tears in their eves. How they
watch him ns he drinks' the water the
gaoler gives him. And for the first
time Erica's self-supprcfision wavers a
second. She lifts her hands to her
brow and presses them there, and then
they drop once more, and nhe is rigid,
for Arnold is speaking; telling that
story of w rong and crime, concealing
nothing, only denying that he had any
premeditation of murder. The wit
nesses from Kington had made it clear
thai up to the time of the two men quit
ting the hotel tliev had seemed good
friends, but that 'Walter had bitterly
reproached him with causing his ruin',
and then hn had lost his temper, and
struck the blow that lulled him.
"I meant lo kill him in that moment,"
he said, "The witness Poynter has
spoken truth in everything. 1' promised
htm money to hush up the mailer, ami
he cfuisentcd lo help me. 1 went then
to (Iriiyle lloiine, where I knew my
cousin was all alone, and told her all,
and claimed the fulfilment of that vow
she hud made to her mother. She prom
ised to keep the secret from her hus
band, who did not even know of my
existence; for," said the prisoner, the
reckless hardness that had been soft
fiicd in these hist, few moments gaining
influence again, "I was not an orna
ment to the family, nnd every one
knows how direful Mr. St. John is of
his name. I have only one thing
more to say," and now he looked
straight at the Judge, and his voice was
Bwayed by a new feeling; "my only mo
tlve In making this confession is to
clear the name of my cousin, who has
AUlt'orcd all these years for ray fault.
She has lain under a false Imputation
since she left her home with me. She
did it simply because sho was afraid to
leave me alone to manage my escape.
And I swear before Heaven, as I am
perhaps a dying man. that there was no
thought of wrong between us, and she
is guiltless of any sin that can bring
a sliadow of dishonor-on her fair name.
I have nothing more to say, my lord,
and I thank you for allowing rue to
make the only reparation I can. even if
a little late, to the woman who has
been at least noble- enough to sacriiice
even her name for the sake of an oath
made to a dying woman."
It was evident that a profound im
pression had been created by this con
fession and defence of Erica St. John.
There was even a faint attempt to
cheer this tardy reparation; and many
were touched by his words, and thought
he was not so bad after all. And in the
eager curiosity to seo how Erica bore
this, the words of the judge as he began
to charge the jury were scarcely attend
The sensation lay there, over by the
wltness-liox. And yet there was noth
ing to see. Onlv a slight girl striving
with an agony that not a tenth part of
that crowd could more than dimly com
prehend. She showed nothing to a
cursory gaze. She stood quite still, not
seeking support, not drooping. Hut
Philip, who was at her side, knew all
she was enduring, and in that knowl
edge was not touched even to a mo
mentary pity for the man who had done
such tardy jus; ice.
The quest ion of the verdict could on
ly lie between murder and manslaugh
ter, anil t lie jury, without retiring, gave
it on the latter count. Yet the sentence
"Penal servitude for life"--seemed
scarcely more than a mockery for that
hairgard and broken-down man.
'J i it'll there was a stir, a swaviug to
