THE FELON'S STORY.
"Conde.uned to die," he muttered, "and
that tomorrow !' '
And as he spoke he paced his cell with
quick, feverish tread. 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.
