With my eyes on the room across, and  my flnger on the trigger,. I waited as  best 1 could. At ten,minutes i wa0  conscious there was_8ome one in tb  room over the way. - Ana then fce came  Into view from.the aide somewhere,  ana went to the table..

After a half minute, however, he steppea to, one side, and X  saw that he had lighted a candle and  was systematically.reading'ana then  burning certain papers,, throwing the  charrea fragments on the table. With  the same glance that tola me that, I  knew the man.   It was Schwartz.  I was so engrossed in watching him  that when he Came airectly tb the window. I stood perfectly still staring at  J him. With the light at his back I  felt certain I had.been discovered, but  I was wrong. He shook the-newspaper that had held the fragments out  out of the window, lighted a cigarette  and turned back into the room.  He was not alone., for he addressed  some one In the room behind.  '���������You are sure you got them all?" he ���������  said.' / ' ���������  The other party came within range  of vision.   It ,was Davidson.

Klle  looked small beside Schwartz's tower-  lug height, and she wore black.  She must hare said something Just  then very quietly, for Schwartz suddenly wheeled on her. I had a clear  view of him. and If ever guilt, rage  ,and white lipped fear showea on a  man's face it showea on his. He re-  pliea-a half, dozen words in a low  tone and made a motion to offer her a  chair.   Sbe paid no attention.  I have no idea how long a'time the?  talked. \ The fresh outburst of noise  below made it Impossible to hear what  they said, and always there  was the  maddening fact that I could  not see  her face.    I  thought of Mrs.  Fletn  ing, but this woman seemed younger  and more slender. Schwartz was argu-  ing, I imagined, but sbe stood immobile,   scornful,   watching   him.     She  seemed to have made'a request, and  the man's evasions moved her no wblt.  .   It may have been only two or three  minutes,    but    it    seemed     longer  Schwartz had given up the argument.  whatever.it was, and by pointing but  the window I supposed he was telling  her he had thrown what she wanted  out  there.    Even   then  sbe  did   not  turn toward me.   I could not see even  her profile.  . What happened next wa3 so unexpected that it remains little more than  a picture In my mind. The man threw  out his hands as if to show he could  not or would not accede to her" request.  He was flushed with rage, and even  at that distance the ugly scar on his  forehead stood out like a welt. The  next moment I saw the woman raise  her right hand with something in it.  I yelled to Schwartz to warn him.  but he had already seen the revolver  As he struck her hand aside the' explosion came.'
