I'll kill you no, no; forgive me, sir Yes, you've been faithful, and you're an old employe I wish you a very pleasant good-evening, sir." He stepped gingerly down the three wide stairs, pitched forward, and measured his length in a bed of pansies. Mr. Daney came down, struck a match, and looked at his white face.

As he awoke he perceived drowsily that the room had at the same moment become dense with sunlight. The ebony panels of one wall had slid aside on a sort of track, leaving his chamber half open to the day. A large negro in a white uniform stood beside his bed.

She appeared as cool and composed as if she had just arisen from her dinner. Yet in the vestibule stood the one man whom she had most cause to fear, the man who now held her fate in his hand Nick Carter. "Good-evening, Mr. Venner. Oh, it's not you!"
