Tlio declinator, Colonel Domin

The decimation took place by the
drawing of black and white bonus
from a small earthen mug. The
white ones signified exemption,
and the black ones death. One

thair anxiety to execute C'aptnin
Cameron, and purlin pa the otucr

superior to their condition. Some

black beans failed to depress, so
did tho white ones fail to elate.
