"Rend this," aaid the chief, banding
me a telegram from I forget what re

as yon will see. "
I suntched the telegram and read
thece words "Convict Kornilof never

"Telegraph first, if you will." I
said. "I cannot stand the suspense."
The chief kindly did as I requested,
ne sent a message to the littld convict
station at Hpiodc, inquiring whether
Kornilof was still detained there.
I went fur a walk by tha Neva'a
banks while the message went forward
and until the reply should arrive. I
