I started up nnd sprang  to the window. The boughs of a huge  elm were quite rear, and 1 easily stop-  Led into'the tree. '-Here I remained  Hidden by the dense foliage, for despite  -iIn- danger, I could not resist theemi-  oslty to know -who it was that was in  tl.e house. Tn a very lew moments  ,1 light appeared, and I clearly saw  thai it wi.s young Walter Marvel him-  Kfli*. JSverything seemed to favom  inv plot. "Waiting until his lift lit was  extinguished ^again and until 1 < ouiu  .-dip out of the tree without ai trading  111s attention ] stole siic-ntly away. I  walked to New Market Junction, wh^re  I boarded the early morning tram foi  Saw .Market, for, though 1 could easily have continued on to thai place  mi .foot, 1 wished to give colour to tlie  story which I inUnded to toll, of Lading come from Portsmouth, by. being  seen to leave the* proper train. During this snort ride the conductor point-  .t-d out to me two men and told me  1 hat thev were detectives. It was  these ..same two that I afterward recognized at the saloon, when the  squire i'nformed nie that he was taking  detectives to my house. I was startled, not unnaturally, to learn���that experienced' men would be on the scene  of the crime so early, and in my agi-;  ��� tation I 'almost betrayed myselr, as 1  know, because Burrows questioned me  afterward, "  "Another unexpected event wns  when my dog re.-ognizeci me at the  house and plainlv showed his friendship. Stran'ge as it mav se��=m. this  possibility, obvious as iL should have  been, had not even occurred to me. A.  man who commits a crime always overlooks something-. 1 was so taken by  surprise that I scarcely knew v.-hat to  do,  for the animal is so sa\age ihat  it .would, of course, look strange to  the squirt*, to see him fawn upon a  stranger. ' However, 1 made a lame attempt at explanation, but, poor as it  , was.  it served   to  lull  suspicion.  " That night, as fate would have it;  1 was assigned to my own room, and,  thinking over the whole affair, it sudden! v occurred lo me that a postmortem, would reveal the fact that one  wound had caused instantaneous  death, and, for all that T could te/1 at  that time, the other might be of the'  same character. However, I saw at a  glance' that the only way to explain  ihe presence of the'paper which I had  -written, would be by supposing- one  ���wound to have been made by either  of the shots which had been fired  from the lawn., ,ln that event the position of the wound on lhe body would  lead ine detectives to search for the  corresponding hole through my clothing. I, therefore, determined to se-  < rote these garments in this apartment, and to let their disappearance  be a part of  the   mystery.  "Everything went as I had planned,  except that "the paper fell into the  hands of Virgie, and led her lo believe in young Marvel's guilt. Thus,  in her efforts to save him, sho herself  became enlangled in the affair and  even accused herself of the crime. To  prevent the consequences of this, I led  Mr. Barnes to where ho would find tbe  evidence which 1 had manufactured  against young Marvel. 1 wished to  remain behind to search for the bundle  which he claimed to have thrown into  lhe river, and which T would have destroyed if 1 had found it. h5ut the  .shrev.d detective would not allow me  to leave him. When we reached Ep-  ping, we found Burrows ahead of us.  He had ferretted out all that I wished to be discovered. I congratulated  myself that all would yet be well, when  Mr. JBarnes at once demonstarted the  fact ihat Marvel could prove an alibi,  or else that Virgie must be considered  an  accomplice.  " Tims I have no recourse but to  die. The truth must bo known that  the innocent ir.av not suffer. Tt is  , bard that, what I" have so long and  ' tamest lv ��� guarded should at last be  revealed. I have been a victim of  circumstances, rather than a criminal,  and it seems unjust. I suppose r  should not have raised mv hand  against my fellow man, and though  it'was, as T thought, in self-defense,  still it is true that I had long premeditated tiie killing, and so 1 how my  head t.> the stroke <<i fate. The one  prng thai 1 sillier is that, after all  tlu-se >eais, inv ni.-cc iiui-d learn what  n villain her father was, and that net*  uncle   is  a  *iH'.rd.--r.-r   und   a  suifid--.

Aiid now, God's will be done, and may  Tie have mercy on my soul."        '��� , . '���  ��� " Amen I"   exclaimed  Mr.  Barnes.     .  " Virgie  tells me that you have solved  thc-  mystery  of this murder."  " Yes, sir. Chance has favoured me,  and 1 a'ni glad that 1 have succeeded in  saving the accused without the necessity of a   trial."

On the advice of  friends she commenced taking Burdock  Blood,Bitters. The results that followed  were little short of marvellous. , Her j  strength and vigor returned and in a short j  time she was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhuia is to-day ia the full enjoyment of  good health,' and in all these years there has  net been the slightest return of the trouble.  Hers is t?ie letter Mrs. Gilhuia wrote at  the time of her cure : '    ' ^  " About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disease to be cancer of the  stomach, of an incurable nature, and told  :ne that it was hardly to be expected that  I could livelong. Afterward the two doctors  v.ho were atler*d;��g* me gave me up to die.  " By the advice of some of my friends,  who knew of the virtues of Burdock Blood  bitters, I was induced to try it, and I am  now happv to say that after using* part of  the first bottle I felt so much better I was  able to get up. I am thankful to state that  I am completely cured of the disease by the  use of'B. 13.13.,'although it had baffled the  doctora for a long time. I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved  my life." , o  .,-. Here is,the letter,received from her a short  tint.' ago:  '" I am still ir. good health.
