When the war ended the two men

me in the least It was just what 1 had
looked for-just what he had expected!
A detailed account of tlie murder appar -

person fired at the captain through the
window of his office at night and made

was tlie reply.

"Yes," responded the captain, "he will

Later in the day the soldier was re

group of officers in front of their quar

Tlie man did not stop, but he slack
ened his pace and looked straight at the
captain.
A dead silence fell upon the group.
That squatv. resolute face, with its deep
aet, blarii:.' ryes, fascinated us.
It was euiy a second or two, but the
look that Gray darted at the captain was
full of deadly meaning.

very pale, and, muttering some excuse,
be rose and went to his room.
