I told her I wanted lier to give him up as I understood they had taken out a marriage license and I didn’t want her to marry him. "Did you make any remark to her in his house before him about the ring on your hand?” "I don't remember any. Of course I have always worn the ring since he put it on. It Is on my right hand now. It was on my left hand then." "Do you still love Mr O’Connor?” asked Mr Montague. "Yes, Hlr,” replied Miss Madden, who Is very pretty. "Did you say at the Postoffice you would kill yourself lf she did not give him up. and draw something like a bottle of poison out of your pocket?" "No, I loved him, hut I was not as foolish as that."

A finger on her right hand was fitted for the mounting that was to be used for the stone. The mounting was to be hand made with a platinum top. except that occasioned by the use of the passing siding around the derailed train.
