Douglas Wade seconded h..s s.s

"Good evening, Talak!" he said.
"You remember you told me you
wanted to talk to .Miss Wade, and 1
told you she was ill'.' Well, you see
she is able to be out again now."
"Dat's good," the man mumbled.
There was an awkward pause
while the new arrival shuttled his
teet on the gravel and twisted h:s
battered cap about in his hands.
"You wanted to talk to me about
something?" Elizabeth queried.

With a nod, Douglas turned and
went into the house, and as the
sound of his footsteps died away the
Pole spoke abruptly.
"Mr. ISutier, he give me money.
Where is he?"
Elizabeth replied promptly, press
ing her hands together.
"In jail.'
The man stared convulsively.
"Do oder gentleman said lie's ar
rested and couldn't come here. He
didn't tell me he's in jail."
"That is where they put him for
killing Mr. Chapin," the girl said

did not* kill Mr. Chapin. Put he w.ll

There was a tense silence, then
the even voice continued. "Mr. But

who shot Amos Chapin confesses."
"1 shot Amos Chapin!"
The words were sudden and un
expected, and the listener scarcely
suppressed an exclamation of con
sternation. There was a subdued
rustle at the window, then silence.
"How did you do It, Talak?"
The question was uttered so cas
