parently delirious jand dyingTrom
her self-inflicted wound ; after
her"?attempt to- ehoot ' Dicky

and then'to the unmasking of her
pretended delirium by Dr. .Peitit.
And the voice witalwhJcjb, she ad

Only One Request.
She hadflung that barbed doubt
of Dicky's truth at me when she
was facing almost ceftavn death.
1 1 had sueceded in pushing it so
far dawn la my consciousness that
! rarely did I .feel its sharp .thrust.
But : her ' hesitation, ' her hurried
(qualifying phrase, ' .'vainly, of

the surface, ind I;knew that-no
I matter what decision s I . made fori
I or against her, . the festering .track

Again i there .scmnded in my
brain a tiny note if warning. But
It. was faint, so lielit "in the scale
as compared t with the weight of
th girl's -tragic, . abasexi appeal,
that I put"' It aside and' stretched
out my hands impulsively toward
her. 'Her 'piteous contrasting of

down my last barrijer.

I said simply, foil in honesty I

hot tears, - not kisses, fell npon
them, ' and I .heard her broken
murmurs of thankfulness, f; When
at last she lifted hr head a look
of quiet peace had succeeded the
anguish which had! been portrayed
in her face. i ' '
