You be been Clever to me doctor and to allow you 1 aint a it hard but a lat 1 can feel grateful i mean to Seal lhi., tip when Evo fished it and in treat it to you with a Good by to do flu Tever you choose with it. Yea thin is All the dying enl is Ion slim Munlochy a going to make and it a i Lviv to Tell Why. To Tere arc two ways of making a it Anh Siou As everybody knows one is when fellow Wauls to nuke believe by Dies game Aud rollicks Oft a whole lot of Stuit truth Ami lie mixed together to make Lii self out a Hundred times worst than he is. But i trl Yon a Roclor tin my who Doe Ilia is Tho biggest Coward of All Ami if lie does go up the Gallows without shaking its Brandy and nutty own legs that in the cause. Another jut in a whole Pennou like about lt.culance, and Lav my Mirror Aud telling Young tue to Lake warning by their example Yuul All Liat sort of thing hut its All Gammon. Only an ignorant Nigger is fool enough to think lies going to Lien von because he a said ids prayer when lie limbs he can to get a Pardon. Besides none of them Tell the truth. They make themselves out icon or Bruch than Otty really Art All Tho time. But tins is neither Here nor there. In a not going to make any regular confession myself because would relive it any How you to ult fix al besides everybody knows All about me or thinks he docs. Every body knows in be been areal High layer in the burglar Way nud Iovu cracked More places than most men of univ age. Everybody believes of course Llinat in be killed Doveas of Puoplo and All i could say to the contrary show a wrinkle in my favor. Well they re Welcome to their belief it done to Hurt me a Straw though it Titi use to tru Blu me in court to hear every Man Call me a a a blood thirsty villain a and All that sort of stuff and to see the women stretch them Heads almost out of their Bonecu to get a sight at Iho a a great robber and murderer a Ilam Murdoch. Yon Nover did though and if it will Utike you think any better of me Why in a frets to confess that i never shorted any Many a life but one and Ali at Swiat they re going to siring me up for and so far As Liml Alfair in concerned 1 done to think in Mas much to blame a they make out and mavis.-, if id Yuul a Good character or plenty of Money id got Oil a Good Deal cheaper. 1 did More for Cranky Steve Quot than anybody else would have Dono i know and he and plus by both knew that i was not a fellow to let any Man fool me about my a Iri. Besides i tint certain that i meant to kill him. Struck him hard 1 know but my hand aim used to giving love taps at any time much loss when in a mad. But a did to mean to say a word about that affair. Steve is dead and in a to pull hemp for it and its All in lie to that you can judge lbs yourself. I meant to Tell about another thing altogether something that 1 think i by ashamed of even it was to by told in Church. Its about tin Only Good tiling i Ever did i do believe and i to link i ought to be proud of it i reckon its about seven years ago since it happened. I was friends then with a a Rowdy Joe Quot is they used to Call her a girl that 1 really believed loved me bad As we both we he i had plenty of Money then having made a Good lift in Crock style nud. As i had thrown the cop off the track altogether i made it Fly very fast. In a a do Cut looking Man As everybody knows when i choose to look so and can Wear shiny clothes As Well a any gentleman. As for Joe she used to be a splendid looking woman and she knew Liow to dress Anil act like a lady when she Yuul the Money. Well when we two were together and dressed up we wore is respectable a Kiir is needs be and we used to walk about the streets Ann in non so that mighty few people Vonlil live guessed what jailbird we really wore. You May lie sure though that some of the polite counter hoppers suffered by us for of All the litters i Ever saw Joe could do the i a Quisito Cost pics a of work. In be seen her Many Lime carry of whole piece of silk right before a Many a eyes and he never once suspicion her. But i done to mean to Tell von al out rigging now though it was her stealing habit that brought about the whole Aluir. You see it happened this Way me and Joe was walking on the Street one it Lav dressed As decent is a reverend and his Wile and i was talking to her about a piece of crack work i meant to do in a night or two when she caught my Liam Ipi ick like and a Aid a a look there. Ham Quot nodding her head toward a Young to Tenn inst getting into a Carriage in Ivon of a store door. I la swear she was the prettiest creature 1 Ever see in nil my life. If i was a Man of so boding and could write poetry she would just a born the first id live made Versos to. She had great big Bright eyes not exactly Blue but nearer that than any other color. I never us such eyes in my life. They looked full of something that made me somehow fed Nesli amid of my self and they seemed so innocent dial i doubt really believe she knew Liat sin was. Then her liar curled nil round her face As if she Yuul so much she did to know Wlms to do with it Atid her lips id a gone to the states prison o year if sliced have let me Kes her. There was a Little a Gay on the front seat of tic Carriage maybe tier pc Yong old. And 1 Koweil he was her child from the was she looked at him and smoothed Down his clothes. A a aint she pretty says 1 to Joe. A a Nonsant Quot says she cursing for she would swear and worse than anybody 1 Ever heard women always do when they go Down Hill especially such As Luthc la in Well brought up As Joe was�?1 mean come of Good Stock. A a i did to mean you to look at the Laily a she did t say Laily though a a but at the ring on her Finger its a real Diamond and a splendid Oue and 1 mean to live it so look at in Quot 1 said nothing to Lough i Felt arc Tiv much a nosed for von see. Doctor just alien i tii Anglit of the mighty Dille rence Between the two women is if one Lado Urcil to heaven and the other was on the High Road to 11� contrary but 1 looked at the ring As i walked by. I think it was from Over the water Lur they Luis to Learned to make such Fine work on this Side yet. Joe said she was going to follow the earrings and find out where the Laily belonged As she left me and i walked on thinking about the difference Between the two girl nil tie time. That night Joe came Home to inv crib Aud said shed found but where the girl lived and licit 1 must plan to get the ring for her for die Hail set her heart a Jim having it. 1 snowed it was Usa making any fuss about it for she would have just gone and left me and like As not reached to i Tohl her i would undertake the Job As soon As i could fix the Points of the thing. She told me where to go How Many were in family i Tow Many servants Anil which was the woman a mom a she always was the Devil for filing out things that Joe and could plan a nicer Lay than the sharpest cracks Man 1 Ever saw. Tic next Day 1 in Gan to look at the place and Ace How 1 could got in Best Anil so for two or three Day Piure. I found i could enter by tip Yard Gale pry her being so Brave 1 let go of her and took my Seal open a Kitchen window Aud thou the Way was Clear to again. Get up choirs. Once in tic lady s bedroom where she a Joe Quot says 1, a Uji eople lilt the right Nail on the head Anil her husband slept with die boy in a trundle bed when they Nick named you a i Elmiire. You re worse at die foot of the ii Joe Fumul that cot 1 would line than Ever 1 want to lie and Ali al a saving a Pood Deal to quiet them All with chloroform to As to get the jew seeing my name Ilam Munlochy. Just stay Here will cry and Silver. It was a ticklish business but 1 was you now and give me Mure Lilker about in i la used to it Anil did to much mind Only 1 a led to a Cal Jet die ring but mind doubt say another word about into that innocent creature s a that s a fact 1 it fur i d sooner a Long sight Slit your we Sand Tului do Don t know How it was. I m not squeamish but id live such a done must any tiling in body a work i for her. Well i 1 sin did t s a most i q a t. Planned to look around one Day More to Sou if any tiling new was of and then to do die Job in regular Good style thu night after. I went round to uric Early in the morning and die first thing 1 saw was in xxi Oil the doer i was never to taken Aback in All my life. I went Bock to my crib right off and sent Joe to find out what was up. Sho was t gone Long before she came in again and told tue the pretty lady was dead but Abr All that she meant to have die ring. It seems the thing a Lulu de somehow tills Way the Day Defuro the Lily was in Good health hut to Down at dinner in a kind of sudden fit of what sort the doctors rightly say but Sho never moved any More and in an hour she was gone. 1 Felt queer. I toll you to think that one As pretty Ami As Good a Lier should Lave to go in that style when a in pc like me could stay longer than he wanted to. I asked Joe what she meant to do hut site Only told me shed fix it got some Money from me and went out it might have been four hour. In fore she Enraca Hack and then she was awful flurried. Slie set Down and did t say any thing Chr null five Ini Aules then she spoke up Short and Quick am said u in be seen a a Flint Quot says i a a aint Shu dead utter All a a a a yes a says she a a but i saw her in her own House where she is Laid Oul Quot _ a a then you be got Tiia ring 1 reckon Quot says i feeling kind of Nickish to Ali Ink Flint a Devil Jik was for i knew shed Liet a there to steal that ring from the pretty lady s Corpse. A a a a say she gutting mad a a i Liaqut got it but ill Luthc it or die when she told me Liow it was and just show you Flint Nort of a Woi Piui she Wax in a minded to give you the state of the Case in a word or two. It seems Jon Tuut round to the Iii inc where the dead Young woman was opened thu door like one of tic family and walked right up stairs front bedroom where the pretty creature Pas Laid out i Liap cued that there Wasny to anybody in the room it tuu time so Joe goes right up to thu dead girl and the first thing Sho sees b that ring. She did it make Bones nit it seeing that time was precious hut Hugus right away to slip it off of the Finger. While she Linail uie Rimml in hers she hears a step right behind her and looking round who should she see Bat the husband mighty Pale but frowning Black. He caught Lipold of her shoulder and says he a a who Are you mid Liat Are you doing hero a this would have fetched almost anybody right up standing but Joo was the cutest girl on a Surprise i Ever heard Tell of. A a of sir Quot says she dropping on Lier Knees and bringing the red to her face in a Way some women have a a of. Sir Pray Pardus tac. I note 1 Havno to any right Here in her room Shu to pure and Angrl like Aud i so wicked but but Sho was so Good and Kiwi to me indeed i could t help come to see her once before ther nut Lier in the ground a and then she goes on to Tell Iii a a Lory Almut they being school mate together whoa Ahu was t Muerl and How after when she and fallen and grown to be a Low vile creature and All her friends had forsaken her and sent her to the dogs his Angl wife that a what Sho called her a bad gone to her and tried to Rabo her out of the mud got her Home gave her Money and decent employ and that sort of thing so How could she help trying to get a inst look al her Best and Only Friend ? All plus 1 know she said in that Devilish deceiving Way that made her the artful st creature living and the poor tool took every won for Wiki be a Knitli seeing it was just like Flint lib wife would do Anil got tender hearted toward her Aud promised to Sec that lib wife a charge was not allowed to Fiill through. And then she asked in a hesitating kind of Way if she might go to the funeral and be promised he would see she got a Good place after Lii he she came away. I Felt kind of afraid to ask her but i did a a you aint going to the funeral Joe f the Fere with Eye of hers a a Ham a say she looking at me full in that devils Eye of hers a a did t 1 say til Bare that ring in spite a 1 said More for i knew it was use so Joe went to the funeral tic next Ilav dressed in Black Anil looking so decent that nobody could a guessed Liat she was. 1 did t go out of the Ken All Liat next Day. I Don t know Why but Joe a doings about that ring worried me so. 1 reckon i a Ever made any pretences to being squeamish Anil never was a Man to flinch from any Job on account of consequences but i do inv there arc some tilings beat my Power of doing Aud that Job of Joe to was just one of them. As soon As she Roma Home and set Down flinging her Lionnet tothe Side tic room ilex Vrato Liko i Kun shed missed in 1 did to say a won though Only get still and hied away at a Tattem key i was nuking. Soon she got tip and snatching file anti key out of my hand thing them into the fire place. A a 11am Murdoch Quot save she her eyes flashing As if she wonted to Cut somebody a Throat a a Lynw Murdoch you re says 1 a a Inore i aint Joe for any such Job As Liis you be been trying to put she kept quiet for al out five minutes and then she comes met he and sits Down in my Lap. A a Liun a says she a a Uliey be put her in a vault i never was a it mad in my life. I cached her by the Throat and chucking her Way Tother Side the room said u you she Devil if you say any thing More of this to me i la heat your brains out but she was too much for me. After All and had Lier own Way. Sometimes when in be been to a show five looked at tic she Tiger and thought How she would serve Tho keeper if Slie was Only free and could catch him once where she knew he could t gel a wave How she would in boy it to see him cornered and flow she would kill him Little by Lite mouthing and ton Ling and pitting him because of her hate Well Joe put me in mind of just such a thing then. She knew me out and out and guessed just How i Felt toward Tho dead Young woman. How i listed her for it. Then. She came slowly up to me her Devil s eve All afire with what always seared me and mind you i aint much Given to 1 icing seared doctor her Mouth smiling in a perfect kind of malice and spiteful Bate mixed together so Liat i can to describe it and her two fists clenched. A very Well then. Ham Murdoch Quot said she in a kind of Quot slow hissing Tono of voice a very Well. We Are quite on that subject. You wont get the ring but i will. But i reckon Ham Murdoch Quot said Slie drawing the words slowly out for Slie snowed How they Hurt me a a reckon. Ham Murdoch the woman a Friend will wish you a done the Job since i done to feel Vry kind toward her Otter die trouble she s Given tue and i aim afraid of consequences Here nor hereafter Quot Ami then die picked up her Bonnet and started out. But 1 was too Quick fur her then and caught her before she got the door open. When i Laid my hand on her Ilion i Tek More like doing Munler than the Devil Ever put it into my mind to feel before or since 1 could have Lonc it Widi Oue blow of my fist and i a Decd it twice Over Here if she d flinched id live killed her. Certain hut she looked me study in the Evo Aud did Twink nor get Mac and 1 look Lnu to strike say nov More for site knew me and knew 1 Wasny to to be trifled with. P. Ramps you Maynet believe me doctor but of All the things i Over undertook from first to last this one Hurt me most of any. It was robbing the Gravo Ynnel that it me on in a certain since most of is cracks have to get used to Liat sort of thing it 1r-Longtng to thu Poi Kassiou so to spunk Ami i d Yuul a hand in Many a dangerous resurrection for you Doo tors. Who get More bodies out of private grave yanks than Tuple think you know Luil it was something about that Wotan something Liat Milo to afraid of her afraid to go near her Ali Aid to touch her. When i thought of breaking open her coffin it seemed to me the same kind of thing is if i d gone amt to Linndale Fine silk or velvet with great Greasy hands. I can to make out my meaning very Clear. Ill May lie you can pics at what 1 want to say. 1 Felt mud with myself just As i would have Felt with any body 1 saw trying to corrupt and ruin in innocent child. Tho next Daj Joe and i Rode out to the Grove annl that she might show me the vault and i planned to do it that night for i wanted to have the business of my Bonds As quirk a possible. I put a Short axe a couple of files a Eold chisel a a Jinn us a i dark lantern a heavy a Bill Quot and unite of Brandy in Ziy pockets together with a steel bit or two in i should have to Liore and started out about Lulf iat eleven. The grave Yard was near tic upper Edge of town and i and a pretty smart walk or it before 1 got there. It was a dark Rainy night and Moon which just suited me. I had looked about pretty close when i was Luire in tic Wilny to my and knew my course All through. 1 went round to the Side farthest from tie Gutc any because the Wall was Low there and thu vault near by Only about one Hundred yanks from the place were i got Over. 1 found it without much trouble and getting out my tools went right to work knowing Flint i Hail to do on account of having seen the fastening by Day Light first i oiled the hinges so a to keep them from creaking too loud. The door was Iron Anil was fastened by a bar with a padlock and Chain to it on the outside and a i eave double bolted lock to the door itself. 1 pried the pal Loek open and got the Barilow in Short order hut the Oiler lock gave tue Tomo trouble. I was afraid to blow it on account of the a Iasi Yuul it was too Strong tor my keys. However i got at it with bit and Driver bored a Hole Large enough Roget in the clip Sci and then managed after a Little tugging to Send the la Jet Mick in the lock. The a Loor swung easy. 1 looked around to see if the coast was Clear put the tools in my Pockl took a Good swig of Brandy Anil then caught Ikwild of the door to Coin. But on my word 1 was out nil out afraid. 1 Felt More like running away than going in there where lie was and for the life of me,couldu1 make up my rail to do it for More than five minutes. However it Wnm to be done and 1 knew it Wax use for me to be stopping there so 1 gave tie door a swing ohm a Stepuk d a and pulled the door to Belg and me struck a Light in my lantern. It was a Low lamp place with Latouc Ali Cave Oil Jap and. One above tic other. There were four Cornils m there three of them old with the cloth Liat covered them All Mouldy and peeled off in places. Tic other Wax right new. I would have known it anyhow though by reason of one of the handles being pulled out screw and All. Which a happened As Joo told me just As they were putting it to the vault. 1 nut tic lantern Down on the Collin which was on the lower shelf and looked in through thu Shuw plate. I declare it made me feet All Verish to see that pretty lady there just As i had seen hit in the Stercl exc Clit for her White Cap and rather Pale face and her Bright eyes being closed. 1 did t dare look at Lier Long but got out Ray screw bit and begun to take the top of the coffin Oil a for the Liams were crossed so Low Down Liat i could t reach them by oenning thu Clatt lid. 1 soon got the top Loose and setting the lantern on the shelf took tie whole off. Then 1 turned to look at the poor thing again Lier eyes weren to a bit sunken Only shut a it she had just fallen asleep. 1 threw thu Light full on her face and to look at her. I put the lantern up again and taking hold of her land slipped tins ring off of gently a might be and Pul it in my pocket. I fell glad 1 Hail come then for 1 knew Joe Pirt Ntina and Publ Lahore . 2. Ivc Dune it is gently As i did. Then 1 Laid thu lid of again Ami lie inn to screw it Down. But before 1 got one screw Back in its place j began to get so nervous and Trei Nelv Liat i had to quit i Felt like i would drop Down if 1 did to get Awn from there Uniek. I Don t know Liat it in a die Oloc Damp smell maybe a so i took up it lantern tarried the Glass Down and started to go out. Just As i was opening the door 1 heard something that set me All of a shiver a kind of rustling like not loud hut sounding very Plain in Liat still place. I wanted to Cut Anil run i Tell you but 1 thought it would never do for Ilam Murdoch to get scared in a Gravo Rord. So 1 turned Back and threw to Light of the lantern around the vault thinking maybe it was a rat Liat had got in somehow. But 1 did to Sec any thing. Then i heard it again this time plainer and it seemed to coma from the a it or Laily s coffin. Just is i was on the Point of making bolts for 1 was so seared that i did to know what 1 was about the whole top of the coffin Slid off. And fell to the ground with a smash breaking the Glass into finder 1 stand it nov longer. 1 shot through tie door and run away among the Bushes As hard As 1 could till i stood out Here maybe two minutes wondering Liat it was that made tue so much afraid lie Nuflo they used to Ray you might As Well try to scare the Devil As Ham Munlochy.
