well as person, and turned pale. At
the table at which thls'other Carolinus
sat were Tnllia and Balbus. Both aw
the host looking at Verro, bet pretend
ed not to notice that he was doing so.
Carolinus, who had all the supersti
tion of that nge. trembled. At first
Tullia and her lover feared that he
would have the interloper ejected, and
this would have spoiled their plan.
Carolinus, struck with terror, did not
know what t do. Was this man him
self. Carolinus, in tbe spirit? And did
he come to warn him of his awm death 1
Then In occurred to hlin that he could
soon find out whether or not the stran
ger was mortal. Taking tip a cup which
he had prepared for another victim, ha
told the slave behind Mm to take It ta
the guest who resembled himself, ex
chanse cup with him and pledge hlnj
in the governor's name.
This is what Tullia and Balbnii bad
expected or at least hoped be would
do. When Verro extended his hand to
take the cup Tul'.lu seized it and held
it aloft, any ing:
"I claim this honor'." She wa about
to drink It when Balbus tried to take it
from her. In the struggle between,
them it wns impossible to tell who
drank the poisoned wine. Carolinus
trembled, fearing Tullia had drunk It
and that his failure to thrust it upon
his double Indicated that the fates had
decreed his death.
In a few minutes Tuilia. rising front
her couch, started stagceriui; from
the room. Balbus went after her nud

his eyes fixed on Carolinus. who. to ;;ot
away from the unearthly stare, left
the banquet hall.
A messenper came to the poTenior

Meanwhile Tullia and Balbus gave
out that when they had entered the
banquet room tbe stranger had Joined
them, much to their astonishment, and
had taken a place at their table. T'n
doubtedly his coming portended some
thing remarkable to Carolinus. They
advised consulting tbe oracles. The
oracles were consulted and said that
the stranger had been sent by the gods
to the governor to punish him for hla
crimes: that he was now undergoing
that punishment In private, and when
