His eyes were fas tened on the cold iron floor. Suddenly he raised them. "Did you say why?" he cried, with a fierceness that made us start. ' ' Did you ask why it was I killed her, and she my wife?" You would have known by his eyes that there was a dark shadow either ot crime or approaching death upon him. Again he paced the hard iron beneath him. "And she my wife! Yes, curse her, she ! was my wife I Ah, how I hated her I With what pleasure I crushed the life out of her body and heard her last gurgling moan!" He turned suddenly and faced ns. His eyes were fiery red. But that we knew he was sane we might have supposed him to be a maniac- "You do not know," he went on spas modically, "you do not know what hatred is until you have hated the wife whom you onoe thought you had loved. Among the demons below there is nothing thnt can equal it. To live in her repulsive presence, to calmly endure her little acts of tenderness by which she hopes deluded soul to drive the tempest from your brow, and to feel the loathed touch of her arms about you all this will turn your heart into a black and burning hell. "Slowly it grew upon me, and the poison was already deep into my soul when I first felt the revulsion of feeling. One day the touch of her hand was unpleasant to my brow. It had always soothed before. That was the first outward sign of the dark night that was coming. I could' not ex plain it I do not believe there lives a man who can. She had done nothing to cause it. She was as true and faithful as ever wife was, and I loved her. I was sure oi that. "But it had come, and I felt its icy fin gers chill my blood. I struggled to throw it off, but in vain. Day by day she grow more loathsome, more repulsive to me, until at laat I despised her vnry presence. She must have seen the dark moods that came over me, and she tried to dispel them with kisses that burned and seared and with whispers of love that fell upon my ears like the hiss of serpents. "It was an awful thine to hate this woman as I did, and she my wife. Hen every movement was repulsive, every word that she spoke whs discord to my being, every touch of her hand sent a flaming hell into my heart. "Soon I began to plan dark things, half unknowing what it was at first, and the very thought frightened me when it cams into my brain. It was not long before I grew accustomed to it, and calmly and de liberately, yet with gloating pleasure, I would form plots against the life of this woman whom I hated, this wife of my bosom. "It grew to be an absorbing mania. I dreamod of nothing else, found pleasure in no other thought, and all the while the dark and murderous passion was fanned to deadlier purpose by her every loving word and movement. "Carefully and cunningly I laid my plans for her murder. I would kill her while she sjept, in the early part of the night. Then I would give her trunk the appearance of having been rifled. I would go out into the town, get a friend to come home with me, and when I walked into her room would make the ghastly discov ery and shout for my friend to come in. Together we would investigate and find t hat she had been dead only a short while. I would call in an officer, accuse one of the servants, and then let the law do the rest. "It was about half past 10 at night, and I knew by her deep and regular breathing that she slept soundly. The light was burn ing dimly, aud even in her sleep I hated her with a hatred that belongs to the souls of the damned. I did not have to muster up my courage to do the deed. I gloated at the prospect and had to restrain myself until the time came. "I pressed my fingers fiercely and fran tically against her throat. I could hardly keep from shouting when I did. She struggled violently, but I held her with a demon's grip. With one of her hands she caught me by the wrist with such force that I had to pull violently to get it away. But soon it was over, and she had ceased breathing. Even death did not end my hatred. I longed for her to be hid from my sight. "The other parts of my plot were carried through without a break. The servant was arrested before morning, and then I was jubilant and happy, though I took good care to conceal it. "Karly tho next day several officers were there looking into the murder. I knew of course that they could not suspect me, and I was in the room with them as they were seeking some clew to the crime. One of them, looked at me a little curiously once or twice, and it made me just a trifle nerv ous, but how could he suspect mo? I chuckled to myself at the idea. And If he did, what proof had ho? "Presently, as he was bending over the dead body of my wife, he looked round suddenly and glanced, I thought, at my left hand. But I looked, and there was no scratch or mark upon It to betray me, and I was reassured. Then he called us to him where he bent over the body. In tho closed and stiffened fingers of the right hand he had found something. With a good deal of difficulty and with the help of the other officers, he forced It out. I did not see what it was, for he held it in his hand. "Before I could realize what bad hap pened, he and the others had seized me and forced my right hand up. There they saw my cuft and in it a gold button. Then he raised my left hand, and we all saw that the other button was gone. "I had not noticed it before, and my face must have blanched. But the officer only smiled. He held up the object that he had just forced out of my dead wife's hand. "It was a gold button, the ezaot coun terpart of the one I wore! "In hor struggles the night before she bad torn it from its place and held it in her hand to convict me of her murder. " Yes, tomorrow I will die," he repeated as he commenced pacing the iron floor again, "and with the last throb of my heart I will still curse her memory." W. M. Hobby in Atlanta Constitution.
