Claims are murl.ed     by two legal  To     Paiis     belongs   the  doubtful  glory    of disco*.ering  t<he comic side  of  a shocking  love   tragedy.   Armand  Gully,  20,   lovod  a gul   of   unseen,  and   was  loved   by  her.    The  pd rents  on  both srdes approved highly of the  match, the  engagement   was  official,  arrd  the wedding day was fixed.  But  Armand    was thrown  out of   work,  and he has a melodramatic temperament.    The future   looked  bla������k;    ho  could  not  support  his bride,  "-Ire  engagement     would  ha\e   to   i.c broicen  oft.   Ho never  stopped  to consult  ins  oi Uic    'gut's      parents,   or wonder  whether at twenty he would   iot  >,e  aMe   to find  work.   "No,   let  us  die  in each  other's   aims,"   he   told    his  sweetheart.    She was apparently interested     by  the idea. Yes,      they  would die togpUier, and their pa mi Is  and      friends  would   weep   foi   their"  melancholy      fate,    and   the  papcis  would  be full of  "Vet one more romantic double suicide."    So  ihe  two  young   "tragic comedian's"  took     a,  loom   in umhotel     together,  the  boy  bringing with him  a loaded  revolver  He      clasped  the girl  with one aim  and fired point-blank twice.

An eloquent     and  pathetic counsel defended   him.  With  tears in his eyes and a l������ind-  kcichief  in   one  hand,   the   bairi.stcr  begged     the juiy  to allow lum  to  lead   some   touching   lines   by       his  client.    Gentlemen  of   the  jury/might  not find  that' they tore the mark of  original .genius,  and,  in fact,    t/hey  were obviously     inspired by Museft._  But none could deny that they showed an unmistakable stamp of sincerity.    Counsel read theveises.'  Beginning,    like     Mubet's   famous   poem,  pboot tye     willow" to be   planted on  his grave, the lines  prayed  that  aftei  Armand'<? death his heart should  be burred beneath his lo'^e's window.  Fiom it wild roses grow, .which the  loved  hands  would  pluck.    The veise  of  its kind  showed  undoubted  poetic  taste.    The jury was much affected,  instantly brought.in  aveidict.of ac-  rfuittal,  and    Aimand  Gaily  left the  court      a fiee     man,  amid  applause  winch it was impossible to suppress.
