"Where?" I asked, bewildered.
'In here," and he tapped with his
finger on the box.
"Yes, yes, I see."
I threw off the covering and sprang up.
There is the policeman walking on the
same beat, his saber swinging, his head
thrown back. But where is the child?
I scan the different groups near me. No.
She isn't here. I should know her among

country smelled fresh and sweet. The
birds were about, preparing breakfast
for their young; chirping londlv, and
somewhat discordantly, it seemtT to me
in my peculiar state of mind. A cart-
man came driving along the road in his
cart, which was loaded with cabbages.
He saw the box under my frieud's arm.

W e hurried on. It was getting late.
I could not divest myself of the feeling

er I walked fast or whether I walked
slow it kept pace with me, ever turning
upon me a pair of blue eyes, and kept
saying: "W ould you kill him because

Would I kill him? I was an excellent
shot ; he was a bungler. I had tried to
make him a better, but he was too
clumsy. He could handle neither a foil
nor a pistol, and hadn't the delicacv of
sight or touch to learn.
Suddenly we turned aside into a wood,
"In here," said the young athlete who
guided me, vaulting a fence.
I followed him, and we passed tlirough
a thicket and out into an open space on
the bank of the river. There stood my

with his arms folded, and his short,
high shouldered body perched on a pair
of long, thin legs. He was staring
through his glasses at us.
I cast a glance at my adversary's face.
ile was calm ana resolute, l saw as
plainly as words could have told me the
condition of Ids mind. Besides, I knew
him welL His nature was eminently
practical He was the most stolid, mat
ter-of-fact man I ever knew, yet honest
and steadfast at heart. He had deter
mined that he must kill me, or I would
kill him; and he had decided to kill me
if he could.
We were not on the field ten minutes.
The distance was paced. I was handed
117 piiitol and sent to my station. The
word was given.
But other words sounded in my ears
with the signal to fire the words spoken
to me bv Deedie in my dream.
Both shot3 rang out as one, sharp and
spiteful on i.he quiet morning air. I pur
posely fired aside from the living mark
before me. My adversary stood unhurt
I had a bullet in my side.
I saw a firrure striding toward me. It
looked strauge and tall and indistinct,
but I knew it was my adversary.
"Are von satisfied?" I asked.
"Satisfied! Good God, are you badly
It was all my fault." I extended my
hand. He attempted to take it, but the
seconds interfered. "We haven't time
for palaver; we must get away from here
at once. A carnage in which the medi
cal student had come to the ground stood
in the road near by. I was hurried into
it or rather carried, for I was fainting.
The doctor and my second got in with
me. and we drove to my rooms. The
others hurried off in a different direction.
All that morning I lay on my bed, ex
neriencing a mental, if not a physical, con
valescence. I had been badly wounded,
but this was nothing. My hot head had
been turned into gentler veins of thought.
I had been saved from a bitter memory,
a fiend that would have pursued me
through life. I was in an ecstacy when
I realized that I had not killed my friend
that my hands were bloodless. I was
thinking of the diminutive shield which
had been thrust between me and crime
the little maid I had met in the park.
My whole being was filled with gratitude
and love for her. She is perhaps 7, I
mused; I am 20. Seven from twenty
leaves thirteen. When she is 20 I shall
be 33. That's not a great difference.
Then I made a vow a reckless, absurd,
boyish vow. Ah! the hot impulse of
youth; into what follies does it lead us?
One of my first acts on getting out
was to take my remaining sleeve button
to jeweler and have a pin attached.
that I might wear it in my scarf. Per
haps she will do the same, I argued; and
.1 have an abiding faith that by this
means we Bhall one day recognize each
other. There was another link by which
I might know her: Deedie, I learned, was
the diminutive for Delia; so Delia must
be her Christian name.
I sat in the park tul sunset. I saw
again in fancy the group of a month be-
tore passing over the crest, the children
racing, and Deedie dancing backward,
holding up her token and throwing me
kisses. Then the figure melted from my
fancy as it had faded from my eyes be
fore. I arose and walked
the first time in my life I experienced a
sensation of loneliness.
After that on bright davs I often visi
ited the park, but not to find my little
love. Doubtless she had returned ta
America. At last I completed my stud
ies and left the university.

It is related that at a recent sham battle

fire at a detachment of troops who were

cartridges, and no harm was done; but
the detachment happened to be on the

demanded of the lieutenant hotly.
