The incident was trivial enough but
for its effect on Blackthorn's life and
death. Had he on that day got out at
Gloucester road, as he intended, all
might stOl have been well with fcim.
it is, he will be hanged tomorrow
fec'the murder of the Rev. Julian Sib

Kensington, station, he found himself
reached on the shoulder by an elderly
parson. For the momens recognition
jt "An I to be cut dead by my own

Ht voire.
Uncle Julian! exclaimed Bhick
.thcrn. 'I am delighted. I should have
'Tecogaized yon in another moment,
though it's J no, 12 years since we
met."
He was net deligbtcd at alL It em
barrassed Iiira ro meet on terms Gf warm
family intimacy a man who was in
reality a complete stranger to him. The
Rev Julian Sibwell had a parish, i
molc and northern, from winch he very
rarely stirred. The two men were noth
ing to each other. They had te pretend
to be something considerable to each
other and to pretend it at once.
"Twelve years?" echoed Uncle Ju
lian. "It's in, to be accurate. Time
fiies even faster than we think. Let us
hope the number mayn't prove un
lucky," he added with a jolly lacgh.
""It's the merest chnnce that we have

"I see. My lawyer brought me to

Blackthorn gave in to tbe friendly re
lated bore, and as thev clro'e off Uncle
Julian asked, "And what are you doing j
still at literature and journalism?"
"Still at it," said Blackthorn.
The old gentleman grew inquisitive

Blackthorn. "It seems as satural te me

Bet I don't do my work any more
not the ori-imal part; olI sermons al
ways. I've written 2,000, but I sha'I
never bring it to 2,001. There was :v
time when the sight of sheets of gocd

writing on "hem, bat that's cone, ad

ieality as stories. You should make

Then Blackthorn went away. He had
a feeling of uneasiness tbac he had
never had before, for which he cursed
his nscle. The idVa of "the bnttom of
the bag" was absurd, provincial, ia
artisiic, materiaL Suggestion came a

And quite suddenly he realized that i
far him all the eloquent crowded strept j
was niutE and empty. The phrase over
heard no longer told him the rest of
the eoiryersntion and the lives of the
speakers. The feeactifnl women passed i
by and left no thenghe or descriptive
word in his mind. All the life had
dropped oot ef the scne and left it arid
and bare. Nothing that met his eyes or
ears seemed really to penetrate or to
lead to aaythinc Nothing -was sug
gestive. Everything was isolated. Fer
the first time ia his life Blackthorn
found himself consciously trying to ob-
serve. Selection and deduction had gone.
In something that was nar to panie !
he did the very wcrst thing that h i
pouM hare done. He drove back to his j
chambers and fneq. tq write.
Of coarsn be cculd pos write, wor
ried bj his fears tb paralyzed by a
wlf distrust that was pew tq him. He
fciwffc hi eyes and tried to call up a pic

jirson hovering over a green speckled

saying: "You will como to the bottom

aayseif together, " ie said. He relucted,
that there had .been nanny other occa
sions ck which he had been KHable ta
write. Ee had also to refiect thtkb there
had always teen a reason; thaiho had
been mentally or physically tired cr ill
oc distracted by. something which for
the moment absorbed iris mind, and
that now there was ro reason which, be
could trace.
He made no further attempt to wurk.
He paid a call, dined cut, went to bed
early and slept peacefully fcr ten hours.
He felt when he woke that he was in
the best of health, but he also felt that
ids mind was blank and arid. He had
an hour's work to do before 4 in the
afternoon a story to finish. The story
was already half written, and that
comforted him he would not have to
make a start; It would only te neces
sary to get into the vein and go on, and
he remembered that it wus a splendid
story and that he had? found ills previ
ous work on it fascinating: and delight
ful. He read and read again what he had
written. Yes, It -was gcoI, but he could
not for the life of him remember how
he had meant to finish it, nor could he
think of any end that was at all satis
factory. His thought had stepped like a
thread cut short. The story began well,
but it was like z story that had been
written by another man. It seemed to
him to lead to nothing.
At 3 o'clock he wrote a note of ex
cuse. His work had never been late be
fore, but he said that he was Hi. Then
he tried to occupy his mind differently.
He had bought a quantity of Japanese
prints, and he turned them over. Then
he put them away, turning out a big
drawer in an old cabinet for the pur
pose. There was a lot of rubbish in the
drawer relics of holidays abroad, an
old silver crucifix, a little branch, of
coral,, a handful of foreign coins and
the little red bulb that the mad Ameri
can had given him, together with a
somewhat fantastic story.
The day waned and the next day
came. The waste paper basket was
piled high, and Blackthorn rising from
his seat looked out at the dawn. He
was quite sure now that he would never
write again, and he hated his uncle as
he had never hated any man. "He has
taken away my nerve, " he said, "and
that is all that oue wants nerve, the
belief that one can do it. " His cheeks
were pale aad his hands shook. He
really was ill now and he had not
been, to bed. He went into his bedroom
and locked himself in. Then in the
early morning he dressed for the even
ing and sat on his bed waiting until the
evening came, admitting no one, send
ing his servant away, turning over in
his hands the little red bulb. He would
bold it ever the clarefi gloss between his
thumb and the second finger and break
it. It would not show tf he held it like
that
So theBew Julian Sibwell died iu a

Chemists sometimes have queer expe
riences. The following facts were told
by a professor in one of our western
universities: "For about ten years I
have made a specialty of esaminiugand
reporting upon cases of real or suspected
pcif oning. As a number of my cases
have been coimected with murder trials
I have bad considerable notice in the
daily papers. This reputation for mak
ing analyses for poisons-has brought me
a queer class of patrons.
"Every year I have one or more old
men come to me with samples of feod to
be examined fcr poison These men,
without exception, have married young
wives, nod when the husband is taken
sick and doe? not recover as quickly as
he thinks he should he begins to suspect
that his young wife wants to get rid of
him and is poisoning him gradually
through the media -n of his food. Of
course he does not want his wife tq
know of hfe suspicions, so he quietly
gets a sample of the food he suspects,
anjji at soma unusual hour for work,
generally either early n the morning or
very late Th ffce evening, he eomes to
joe and tells ne very secretly fjint he

"have made a nuaiker of such analyses I

case Tht B the hssbund is very much
afraid that his wife will find out he sus
pected her, aad be gets out of my Iabc
ratery ia the qak-krst and quietest mar
ner possible. So every year I expect tc
see some elderly man coming apprehen
sively up my oftce stairs with a well
concealed saatpfc of food about him tc
be examined for poison. Every year i f
