You are wanted in the town." I immediately looked from the window, ami although the moon still shone most brilliantly, somewhat to my I could no one.

I was cheeked on my way down the high street by a considerable crowd, and upon inquiring what was the matter, was informed that-the Assizes were being held, and that an "interesting" mur- der case was going on. My curiosity was roused, I turned into the court-home, and, with a curious creeping about the rootsof the hair, stood and listened. Hear- nothing mere, I walked to the window, and looked out.

As I turned over the leaves of the book, the word Bristol caught my eye. One glance at the page, and in an instant the following circumstances flashed across my memory.

On my way to a friend's house, I had missed, nt Bristol, the train I had expected to catch and having a couple of hours to spare, wandered into the town, and entar- ing the first hotel I came to, called for some luncheon. The annoyance I felt at having some hours to wait was aggravated by the noise a workman was making in re- placing a pane of glass in one of the cofl'ee- roem windows. I spoke, to him once or twice, and, finding my remonstrances of no and his friends, that the case would not be and yet I haven't got a roof to called up until the second week in the term.

In the meantime, however, the hus- band had married another woman. Here, .then, is a pretty quandary. The lawyers will be puzzled to say whether the second marriage, made after a formal judicial disso- lution of the first, is not quite legal, not- withstanding the Court saw fit to recall its decree of divorce on learning that ithad been obtained bv fraud.

Then take the axe and cut cord wood at fifty cents a cord, until the heat of the handlo dissolves the camphor. woman in love is a very poor judge of character.
