a few moments he sut and eyed me from
head to foot with a atrange. glittering

Unable to speak, I shook my head. A
terrible suspicion was creeping over
me, I waa alote, mile awwy from aid
or rescuet with a madman.
"Ah," he continued, reflectively,
"your husband may have mistaken a
tumor for a cancer. Allow me to feel
your pulse," he said, rising and bend

an open case of surgical Instrument.
Involuntarily I raised my head and
