clted. After reproachlng -the woman nnd
causlng suoh a hcoiio that thc waltors

dld iso:
"I wlll ? klll myself! She ls false! I
havo nothlng more to llve for!"
Soon after he reached his room at the
hotol a plstol Bhot was'heard and tho
young man's body was found lying on the

addrcssed to "Whom lt my conccrn," said:
"No ono ls"to blame; I dld It mysolt,"
A second letter asked that some o? hls
