awakened by a sharp and peremptory

manner, Sylvia rubbed the sleep out

"Quite so. May I have a few min

"Certainly. Sylvia saw no renson

"Because I have much to say to you
which no one else must hear," was the
calm reply. "Dear me. how hot this
fire is!" And she moved her chair
so that it blocked Sylvia's way to the
door; also Miss Krlll cast a glance at
the window. It was not snibbed. and
she made a movement as if to go to
it; but. restraining herself, she turned
her calm, cold face to the girl. "I
have much to say to you," she re
peated. "Indeed." replied Sylvia politely, "I

Miss Norman took a chair near the

was possible in so small a room!

and, folding It lengthwise, laid .it
across her lap. Then she looked at
Sylvia in a told, critical way. "Yon

asked the girl, firing up at the tone.
"No. I came to tell you that my

on her chair, "she killed him, that
cruel woman!" "

Sylvia clapped her hands to her face
with a scream. "By you?"
"Yes. She had a beautiful brooch. I
wanted It. I was put to bed by my
mother and kept thinking of the
brooch. My mother was down the
stairs attending to your drunken father.
I stole to Lady Rachel's room and
found her asleep. I tried to take the
brooch from her breast. She woke and
caught my hand. But I tore away the
brooch and before Lady Rachel could
scream I twisted the silk handkerchief
she wore, which was already around
her throat, tighter. I am strong I .al

a girl, and gave up the brooch. Then
Captain Jessop raised the alarm. I
and my mother went downstairs, and
my mother dropped the brooch on the
floor, so that it might be supposed Lady
Rachel had lost It there. Captaiu Jes

alarm and tell the neighbors that Krill
had done it, for I knew then he was
not my father, and I saw, moreover,
how unhappy he made my mother. He

look, "and bound a handkerchief across
my mouth. ,1 got free and sorenmed.
Then he bound me hand aud toot and

mother fought for me, but he knocked
her down. Then he fled, and after a

moved the brooch from my mouth and
unbound me. I was put to bed, and
Jessop revived my mother. Then came
the inquest, and it was thought that
Lady Rachel had committed suicide.

Sylvia was sick with fear and dis
gust. '-For (Jod's sake, dou't tell me
any more," she said Imploringly.
But she might as well have spoken
to a granite rock, "You shall hear
everything,"' said Maud relentlessly.
I asked Ilokar to strangle Krill. He
went to the shop, but when he saw
that Krlll had ouly one eye he could
not offer him to the goddess Bhowa
nee. He came to me at Judsou's ho
tel after he left the sugar on the coun
ter and told me the goddess would not
accept the offering of a maimed man.
I did not know what to do. I went
with my mother to I'ash's ollice when
she was arranging to prosecute Krill
for bigamy. 1 met Tray there. He
told me he had 'given the brooch to
Pash and that it was in the inner of
fice. My mother -was talking to rush
within, aud 1 chatted to Tray outside.
I told Tray I wauted to kill Krill aud
that it he would help me I would give
him a lot of money. He agreed, for

told me of the cellar and of the-side
passage." When -my mother and Pash
came out of the inner office aud went
to the door I ran in aud took the
brooch. It was hidden under some
papers and had escaped my mother's
eye. But I searched till I got it. Then
I made an appointmeut with Tray for
II o'clock at the corner of Gwynue
street. I went back to Judsou's hotel,
and my mother and I went to the thea
ter. We had supper and retired to bed
that is, my mother did. We had left
the theater early, as my mother had a
headache, and I had plenty of time.
Mother fell asleep almost immedi
ately. I went downstairs veiled and in
dark clothes. I slipped past the night
porter and met Tray. We went by the
side passage to the cellar. Thinking
we were customers, Krill let us in.
Tray locked. the door, and I threw my
self on Krill.- He had not been drink
ing much or I might not have mastered
him. As it was he was too terrified
when he recognized me to struggle. In
fact, ho fainted. With Tray's assist
ance I bound his hands behind his
back, and theu we enjoyed ourselves."
Sylvia rose and staggered to the door.

But she clung like a leech to Sylvia

it from Maud's grasp. Sylvia, half
strangled, fell back in a faint, white
as a corpse, while Paul struggled with
