in Lis best clothes, and he stood nervously
wirluig hi hat iu his hand, as I had seeu
im do ou the occasion of our tot meet

He had evidently been coached by hi
lawyer, and he waa prepared to go through
the examination as to hit whereabout on
the day of the murder with circumstantial
precision. He accomplished his lesson
thoroughly. His honest air and heavy
wwll-meaniug expression were all in Lis
favor. My spirits revived. He appeared
to me to Lave told a plain, anvarnisLod
tale enough. I did not recognize any of
the name or places he mentioned ; he did
not bring in those relatives of Lis with
whom I was acquainted Milly, Lucy
but there was an air of heavy, dull verisi
militude over his whole narration.
