I should have eaid that my wife came
from the village where Doctor Lignon lived,

liked that man. There was something in

very repulsive to him.”
“ A great many people share his preju

Barton is by no means a general favorite.
I remember when I was a pupil at Doctor
Union's I used to hate him.”
"And yet no one can tell why they
dislike him. They oon bring no immoral
act against him. Did yon over hear any
thing tangible proved against him f "
