It was needless cruelty for Mrs. Tangbourne to visit her husband In prison, but eten at this Juncture she counted more upon the opinion of the world than upon the po-tBibll-Ity of saving; Pangbourne ever an hour of suffering. At the trial she had passed aa the wronged but for giving; wife, -so she decided that ahe must maintain tnla character to tne end. The papers would make much of her visit to the prison, so to, the prison she must go. The tVaya'ef at Ma. ' It was some three daya before the V date fixed for tne execution, a dull. foggy day In early November. "Pangbourne had given very little trouble during the period -which Iiao. elapsed since his conviction. Ha was very quiet, talking little to any one except himself.- He. would sit on Ills bed. for hours, and-hls guardians said tliat he was try'nsr to remember. "Poor" chap," his guardonce re marked to a. circle of his fellows, "thev-brought him In cullty at the trial, and I suppose h- knewt what they were -about.

It's a queer thing how. the "booxe will take a. now hes cot to die. iiaa arunt nun;' added the. guard reflective ly: "now If I ever have a drop too much It makes me cheerful and at peace with the world. But some men especially when they sre not accustomed to It get wicked mur derous, like this one. All the same It's hard to go to the chair because you got drunk." nia Mlad a Complete Blank. And this was true. Pangbourne, while admitting that he was moral ly culpable, knew that he was not culpable by Intent. Again and again he reacted the events bt the fatal evening In his mind, the quar rel with his wife, his flight from the house, his receptl&n by Mrs. Willoughby how kind and synv pathetic she had been the cham pagne and the spirits which, he had drunk. They had cone up to the boudoir he temembered that and. then ah. then he had certainly spoken words of love to her. Was he not Justified In doing so after her.letter? She had laughed at him he could recollect how slHery her Ir.ugh had been. And then he had drunk more spirits till his words rantocetKsr an he did not know what he was saying. She was wearing: the gray evening dress he was aura of thatand he "had co recollection of her goins; to change it. He d!d not know that her bedroom coramu5cated with the b"ondolr. She had told him that he had better e" back yes. he was sure of that but then came a blank. How had he left the house? How had he found his way home? Try as he would, he could recall nothing of this. Ufa ir.lnd was a blank up to the time he had been aroused in his study by bis wife's voice, and a little later to full con sciousness wh'n the police had como to arrest him. and he realized that he was a tiood-stalned mur derer. His horror had been keen, but he had accepted the terrible sugges tion as true. Just .. he was won't o accept more simple statenienta without question, knowing that his own intellect was below tho sver And so It was that he saw no ex cuse for himself, no defense, ex cept a plea of madness. Men do not always know when they are mad. he told himself. Violet Goes Te See Hlsa. The Jury's recommendation to mercy had been sent to the proper quarter and rejected. Xo valid reason could be seen for any Inter ference with the course of Justice. The fact had been announced to hln: that morning. He accepted his fate without sur prise and without emotion. He seemed, indeed, callous to the Idea, of death. "What have I got to live for?" so he once asked the death watch, and the question was unan swerable. It was the same afternoon that his- wife visited him. "Your wife Is here," said the man shortly. "My wife!" Pangbourne sprang from the side of his bed. He never showed emotion except when, his wife was mentioned. "I won't see her!" moment later he changed hta mind. "Do you think I ought to?" he asked. "I dfn't like hey She said in court that I was cruel to her. that I struck her more than once, that I was not faithful to her they were lies she told. lies.
