Snndav evening, a week after

kept mo constantly eusperated. It
was on that day that tilings began to
uo me to a focus, a buniing-gla.ss of
events that seemed to center on me.
1 dined alone that evening in no
es-eerful frame or mind. Then had
been a polo game the day before and
1 had lent a iouy. which is always a
bad thing to do. And she had wrench

I haven't seen her around,

"ICupbemia is in bed." Mrs. Klopton
.-.aid gravely. "Is your meat cut small

know. She car. sa. "Are your sheets

,otie that the nouse ncios-. me. miwi
has be :i robbed, or that my left hand
neighbor has appendicitLs. So now I
lookec'. up and asked the question she
was vailing for.
"What's the matter with Kuphe
ni'.a?" I inquired idly.
"Frightened into her bed." Mrs.
Klopton said in a stage whisper.
"Shes had three hot water bottles
:nd she hasn't done a thing all day
"She oughtn't to take hot water
bottles," I said in my severest tone.
"Due would make me moan. You need
not wait, I'll ring if I need anything."
.Mrs Klopton sailed to the door,
where she stopped and wheeled indig

with Christian fortitude. "Hut I warn

It was something after two when
the door-bell rang. It rang quickly,
twice. I cot tin drowsily, for the
maids and Mrs. Klopton always lock
themselves beyond reach of the bell
at night, and put on a dressing gown.
The bell rang again on my way down

the door. I was wide awake now, and
I saw that it was Johnson. His bald
head shone in the light his crooked

they were not my own. I wanted des

and hold the other up out of focus of

I did not see the hand appear.
There was nothing there, and thin it
was there, clutching the frame tf thej
trap. I did the only thing I ould
think of; I put my foot on it!
There was not a sound from be

above the hand. After a second's
struggle, the arm was still. With
something, real to face, I was myself
"Don't move, or I'll stand on the
trap and break your arm," I panted.
What else could I threaten? I couldn't
shoot, I couldn't even fight. "John
son!" I called.
And then I realized the thing that
stxyea with me for a month, the thing
I cannot think of even now without a
shudder. The hand lay ice cold,
strangely quiescent. Under my fin
gers, an artery was beating feebly.
The wrist was as slender as I held
the hand to the light. Then I let it
"Good Lord," I muttered, and re
mained on my knees, staring at the
spot where the hand had been. It
was gone now; there was a faint rus
tle in the darkness below, and then
I held up my own hand in the star
light and stared at a long scratch in
the palm. "A woman!" I said to my
self stupidly. "Hy all that's ridicu

Got Two Votes and Declines.
TV. H. McCowen of Curtis, whose
name was written on the populist bal
lot, found himself at the close of the
primaries the populist nominee for
state senator in the Twenty-ninth
senatorial district. -Mr. McCowen had
received two votes, according to the
tabulation In the office of the secre
tary of state. These two votes made
him the populist nominee under the
law. Not caring to accept the nomi
nation, Mr. McCowen fi!ed a declina
tion with the secretary of state. This
caused the populist senatorial com
mittee to go to the trouble of holding
a meeting and formally nominating
George Sayer of Cambridge to fill the
vacancy caused -by the declination of
the man who got two votes on the
populist ticket. A full history of the
transaction, together with full pro
ceedings of the populist committee
when it filled the vacancy, has been
filed with the secretary of state. Mr.
Sayer was already the democratic
nominee in the same district.
