Move to Have It Set Aside.
Herkimer, N. Y., Dec. 5. The jury

laBt, returned a verdict of guilty In

row, to which tlmo court adjourned
fter tho Jury had roportcd. Kormcr
Senator Mills, Gillette's couiihoI, before
adjournment, announced when court
roconvened lomorrow that ho would
move to have the verdict set nsldo.
Tho jury, which had deliberated lor
five hours, sent word that a verdict
liad been reached. A moment later
they filed Into tho court room nnd an J
officer, who had been set for Gillette,
returned with tho prisoner.
Pale and a trifle nervous, Glllctto
faced tho jury and when Marshall
Hatch, tho foreman, declared that a
-verdict of guilty In tho first degree
liad been found tho youthful prisoner
gave no sign of emotion. A Tew min
utes later, when his counsel had an
nounced his purpose of making formal
motion that tho verdict ho set nsldo
and the judge was dismissing the Jur
ors, Gillette bent over a nearby table,
picking up n pencil, wrote something
on :i sheet of paper. He then folded
tho paper carefully and placed It In
bis pocket. Immediately nrterwnrds
ho was taken from tho court room
back to his cell in the jail.
It was learned that tho Jury had
fomo dllTlculty In reaching an agree
ment and that six ballots were taken
before the twelve men agreed. Up
to that time tho Jury had stood eleven
for conviction nnd one for acquittal.

to rcgnln self possession. Seeing Chi!
cote's bewilderment, he came to his
rescue with brusque tiictfulness.
"The portion Is decidedly odd," he
said. "Hut, after nil, why should we
bo so surprised? Nature can't be eter
nally original. Jln miit dry up some
times, and when she guts n good model
why shouldn't she use It twice?" He
drew buck, surveying Cbllcote whim-

slcnlly. "But, pardon me, you are stlil
waiting for that light!"
Ch!lcotte still held tho cigarette be
tween his lips. The paper liad become
dry, and be moistened It as he leaned
toward his companion.
"Don't mind me." he said. "I'm
r.th.vp rather unstrung tonight, and
this thing gave me a Jar. To be can
did, my Imagination took head in the
fog, and I got to fancying I was talk
ing to myself"
"And pulled up to find the fancy In
some win real?"
"Yes, something like that."
Both were silent for a moment. Cbll
cote pulled hard at his cigarette, then,
remembering his obligations, he turned
quickly to the other.
"Won't you smoke?" ho asked.
The stranger ncccpted a cigarette
from the case held out to him, and as
ho did so the extraordinary likeness to
himself struck Cbllcote with added
force. Involuntarily he put out his
hand and touched the other's arm.
"It's my nerves!" be said In explana
tion. "They make me want to feel
that you are substantial. Nerves play
such beastly tricks!" lie laughed awk
wardly. The other glanced up. Ills expres
sion on the moment was slightly sur
prised, slightly contemptuous, but ho
changed it instantly to conventional In
terest. "1 am afraid 1 am not an au
thority on nerves," he said.
Hut Chlleote was preoccupied. Ills
thoughts had turned Into another ehan-
"How old are you?" he asked sud
denly. The other did not answer Immediate
ly. "My age?" he said at last slowly.
, "Oh. 1 believe I shall be thirty-six to
1 morrow, to be quite accdrate."
1 Cbllcote lifted his bead quickly.
"Why do you use that tone?" he
asked. "I am six months older than
you, and 1 only wisli it was six years.
Six year nearer oblivion"
Again a slight incredulous contempt
crossed the other's eyes. "Oblivion?"
he said. "Where are your ambitious?"
"They don't exist."
I "Don't exist? Yet you voice your
country? I concluded that much In

he said. "The modern canker. But we
must both bit getting under way. Good
night. Shall we shake baudsto prove
that we are genuinely material?"
Cbllcote hud been standing unusually
still, following the stranger's words,
caught by his self reliance and Im
pressed by his personality. Now, as
ho ceased to speak, he moved quickly
forward, Impelled by a nervous curi
"Why should wo just hall each other
and pass like tho proverbial ships?"
ho said Impulsively. "If nature was
careless enough to let the reproduction

short. "Oh, I don't know. Our roads

"I'd be content to pnss If I wero you.

I It was done In a moment, but with
his going a sense of loss fell upon Chll
eote. He stood for a space, newly con
scious of unfnmlllnr faces and unfa

by. Then, suddenly mastered by an Im
pulse, he wheeled rapidly nnd dnrtcd
after the tall, lean figure so ridiculous

Halfway across Trafalgar square ho
overlook tho stranger. He had paused
on one of the small stone Islands that
break the current of tralllc and was
waiting for an opportunity to cross the
street. In tho glare of light from the
lamp above bis head Cbllcote saw for
the first time that, under a remarkable
neatness of appearance, bis clothes
wore well worn almost shabby. Tho
discovery struck him with something
stronger than surprise. The Idea of
poverty seemed Incongruous In connec
tion with the reliance, the reserve, tho
personality of the man. With a certain
embarrassed baste he stepped forward
and touched bis arm.
"Look here," ho said as tho other

fingers fumbling with the case to the
pale face with the square Jaw, straight
mouth and level eyebrows drawn low
over the gray eyes. When at last the
card was held out to him be took It
without remark and slipped It Into his

the exchange?" be said.
For a second the stranger did not re

"After all. If It nimiips yor." he
paid; and, searching in hU wuNtcont
pocket, he drew out the required card.
"it will leave you quite unenlight

other smile, partly amu-ied, partly iron
ical, ho stepped from the little Island

at the point where lie had vanished;
then, turning to the lamp, he lifted the
card and read the name It bore, "Mr.
