excitement attending the meeting
might kill him.
It was evident that Miss Beale would

was giving her. She couldn't sleep,

was rapidly losing flesh. I must kill
Captain Warburton as soon as' possi

to her, but was forced to choose be

health. I chose the former course.
Fortifying myself with restoratives, I
went to see her one afternoon, and
when she came into the room where I
was I showed hr by my sympathetic
and melancholy expression that I had
bad news for her.
'Tie is dead!" she walled.
I took her hand and pressed It. but
said nothing. I drew her to a sofa
and, sitting by her side, told her as
briefly a3 possible that one evening
while, the captain was sitting in his
lonely abode some one had fired a
shot outside. Even so slight a shock
had arrested the beating of his heart
j I was greatly surprised at the resig-
i nation with which she received the
I melancholy news. She asked me about
j the funeral. But I had prepared my-
self for this. I told her that I had al
j ready directed that the captain be
! buried at his retreat. I confessed to
have deceived her in many things
about him for his and her good.

People are apt to imagine thnt we carry only solid eold

We do have a beautiful line of solid cold rings, brooches,

as we buy only the best you may rest assured that what we
sell will give satisfaction. Ilest gold filled is not shunned
