Tiie husband's brains had been shot
out one night whlln ho lay asleep by
IiIh wife's Bide.
There had been no doubt ns to the
Identity of tho nunderer. The circum-
stantial evldouco was crushing and. In
addition tho widow herself hud fran-
tically denounced Thome ns her hus-
band's Blayer. His trial had been re-
mot cd to the state metropolis and af-
ter his sontence ho had boon taken to
ItH Jail to await tho day Rot for hla ex-
ecution. The reason for this was pure-
ly prudential. St Anna's was pitifully
poor and there was a growing dispo-
sition to regard the expenses of the
court as excessive Tho nclghboilng
county of Marlboiough bad avoited
the cost of a similar tiial by u (lulctly
ordeied lynching and had boasted of
lt thrift and tlieie had boon somo
warrant In tho fear that the example
might provo contagious.
This had been three mouths before
nnil tho excitement had begun to sub-
Kldo when n now sensation was cieatcd
by the an eat of Haskell's lollct as an
accessory to tho murder at the Instance
of Willis Howaid thu stato's atorney.
Mr. Howard was n man of praisowoihy
political ambition and hnd achieved
no little notoriety by tenson of tho
conviction of Thome Ho laboied un-
der tho dual misfortune however of
not having been born lu tho county
and of having lusplied tho natives
with nn ungenerous disposition to as-
hociatc his zealous activity with the
approaching nomination for Congress.
It was tho third day of the Haskell
trial nnd tho Interest wns lntento. An
Indefinite minor wns abroad that the
utate's attorney had a trump card to
play nnd n thrill of excitement swept
tluougli tho crowd ns ho arose to ad-
dress tho court.
Ho proposed ho declined to produco
n witness who would testily to tho un-
questioned guilt of tho prisoner to
her Identification with "the foulest
deed recorded in tho criminal annals
of St. Anno's." Then as ho turned to
wheto the woman white panic-stricken
nnd nbject crouched bcsldo her
couriel tho whistle of nn approaching
locomotive sounded shrilly from across
the rlvor. Tho only train scheduled
for tho day would not arrive until
night and tho coming of a special was
an ovont unparalleled. It was llko an

In tho intenso stillness every Bound
without was audible tho rumbling of
the train; tho stoppage at tho station;
nnd the ring of footsteps on the dags
that led from the road to tho court-
house. An Instant later thcie was an
agitation about the entrance and
Thome tho convicted murderer guard-
ed by tho officials of the city jail
crossed the threshold. The woman ut-
tered a half-suvpressed shriek and tho
itste's attorney smiled blandly. "This

The tension was acute as tho man
took thu stand. It was evident In the
agitation of tho kindly patriarchal
Judge lu tho feveilsh alcitncss of tho
reporters lu tho hungry Interest of the
country-folk; and even In tho unblink-
ing gnzo of the negroes who hung over
the mil at tho tear In stolid beatitude.
Tho prisoner was lild nnd stated ap-
pcallngly at the wltuoss
"Judge" began the lnttor slowly
"I'vo been doing a heap of thinking
over this business slnco I've beeu
sentenced It's laid hoavj on my
mind and when I found It could bo
fixed up so I could come and tell I was
glad. Theio wiih one leason In par-
titular why I was so glad " His eyes
tested upon tho prisonor an Instant as
ho spoke. His look was steady nnd
his voice while low was perfectly dis-
tinct. ' She's told what she knew and
sho's bi ought mo wheio I am" he con-
tinued. "She's done hor duty and I'm
lendy to do mine. A man's got a duty
even If ho stands within tho shndow
of the gallows." The woman's counsel
glanced up quickly hero tho phraso
was distinctly suggestive of Howaul's
"And I'm going to tell all I know"
went on Thome "and It's tills." Ho
paused nn instant and theio was n
slight smllo upon hla face as ho mot
tho gaze of the piosecutor. "Nobody's
' A man's got a duty even If he stand
within the shadow of the gallows"
guilty for the murder of Jim Haskell
but nie and she sIio'h as Innocent as
Mr. Howard himself."
Tho crowd was fairly stunned by this
unexpected declaiatlon. That anything
less than nn Incilmtnatlng disclosure
was to follow had been undreamed of.
All ejes Instinctively sought tho state's
attorney. That officer was on his feet
wild with discomfiture and rage.
"Do you mean to say" ho had furi-
ously begun when his 'words wore lost
as the voice of Thome rang through
tho hall llko a trumpet.
"It Isn't what you expected is it Mr.
Lawyer Howard? You thought because
eho told tho truth about me you'd get
mo hcio to may bo swenr her llfo away.
And you thought your bribes would
make mo do It. Why Judge this mail
offeied mo my life to go back on her.
Ho told mo ho could handlo the gov-
ernor like a child and that ho'd make
him sign a pardon If I'd say she put
mo up to It. As If twenty l!es and
pardons could over make me do that."
Then ho tinned toward tho jail of-
ficials. "I am done" ho said "we
might as woll go back."
Tho assemblage was quiet for a mo-
ment and then someone with a liner
appreciation of dramatic effect than
decorum proposed tlneo cheers and tho
hall rang wiih Instant clamor. It wan
an uproar too vast for tho efforts of
tho court officials to suppress. It win
the glorlflcatlou of what was rcgardud
ns undoubted perjury and of a couvlel-
ed nun dei or but of ono who had bc-
como a hero because despite all bribes
ho had shielded and screened tho
woman who had betrayed him.
Sho did not even glvo htm a glanco
as ho was led out. Her whole soul
was concentrated In the expression of
smiling lnsolenco with which sho fa-
orcd tho outraged prosecutor. It was
a smllo that later becamo a badge of
triumph as the twelve good men and
true delivered Hie verdict of acquittal
that enabled hor to lenvo the court-
rooman Innocent Proclaimed. It
should bo added however that there
was a disposition to enlarge upon the
theme of Ingratitude nmoug the groups
that delayed to gossip In tho court-
house yard and that in tho evening
tho gentlemen of tho Jury called upon
tho vindicated widow and suggested
the advisability of her prompt depart-
ui o from St Anno's.
And two weeks later the county scat
again becamo a Mecca. It was the
day set for expiation and the natives
had begun to jog Into town hours be-
fore sunrise. Ther was something
more than merely morbid curiosity In
the throug that clustered about the lit-
tlo jail yard and swarmed over the
I hlllsldfl at ltu rear and the belief that
Tbonto In this last scone would provd
wot thy of the prcstlgo ho hnd earned
was fully realized. It woa ' crowd
that lingered thoughtfully long after
justlco had been tlono and that nodded
approvingly ft nn observation of tho
"Gentlemen" said that officer "I doj
not propose to deduce nny morals on
this sad occasion but what I do Intend
Is to be present nt tho burial."
