Uline Mats man, Legard was his name, who I presume was bored. Just as we had passed through into the anteroom, which lay beyond the one in which we had been eating, Delia followed us, and laying her hand on Jack s arm, said that she must speak with him. Legard and I went into the outer hall, and we had not been there more than a minute when the door from the anteroom opened, and we heard Delia s voice. I remember the words well, that was not the only occasion on which I was to hear them. I will keep the ring as a record of my love, she said, and understand, that though you may forget, I never where to buy germ masks shall. Jack came through, the door closed, and as we went out I glanced towards his left hand, and saw, as I expected to see, the absence of the ring which uline mats he usually wore there. It contained a gem which my mother had picked up uline mats in the East, and I knew that he valued it quite peculiarly. We always called it Jack s talisman. A miserable time followed, a time for me of agonizing wonder and doubt, during which regret for my dead illusion was entirely swallowed up in the terrible dread of my brother s degradation. Then came the announcement of his engagement to Lady Sylvia Grey and a week later, the very day after I had finally returned to London from Oxford, I received a summons from Delia to come and see her. Curiosity, and the haunting fear about Jack, which still hung round me, induced me to consent to what otherwise uline mats would have been intolerably repellent to me, and I went. I found her in a mad passion of fury. Jack had refused to see her or to answer her letters, and she had sent for me, that I might give him her message, tell him that he belonged to her and her only, and that he never should marry another woman. Angry at my interference, Jack disdained even to repudiate her claims, only sending back a threat of appealing to the police if she ventured upon any further annoyance. I wrote as she told me, and she emphasized my silence on the subject by writing back to me a more definite and explicit assertion of her rights. Beyond that for some weeks she made no sign. I have no doubt that she had means of keeping watch disposable ordinary medical face mask upon both his movements and mine and during that time, as she relinquished gradually all hopes of inducing him to abandon his purpose, she was being driven to her last despairing resolve. Later, when all was over, Jack told me the story of that spring and summer. He told me how, when he found me immovable on the subject, he had resolved to stop the marriage somehow through Delia herself. He had made her acquaintance, and sought her society frequently. She had taken a fancy to him, and he admitted that he had availed himself of this fa.had been committed at his own door. Never shall I forget that wail of passionate pity, and that cry for the vengeance of justice, which rose from all sides of the startled city. Never shall I forget the hurry, the agitation, the feverish restlessness, the universal communicativeness, the volunteered services, the eager suggestion, surging round the house of the unhappy parents. Herr Lehfeldt, the father of the unhappy girl, was a respected burgher known to almost every one. His mercer s shop was the leading one of the city. A worthy, pious man, somewhat strict, but of irreproachable character his virtues, no less than those of his wife, and of his only daughter, Lieschen now, alas for ever snatched from their yearning eyes were medicine face mask canvassed everywhere, and served to intensify the general grief. That such a calamity should have fallen on a household so estimable, seemed to add fuel to the people s wrath. Poor Lieschen her pretty, playful ways her opening prospects, as the only daughter of parents so well to do and so kind her youth and abounding life these were detailed with impassioned fervor by friends, and repeated by strangers who caught the tone of friends, as if they, too, had known and loved her. But amidst the surging uproar of this sea of many voices no one clear voice of direction could be heard no clue given to the clamorous bloodhounds to run down the assassin. Cries had been heard in the streets that night at various parts of the town, which, although then interpreted as the quarrels of drunken brawlers, and the conflicts of cats, were now confidently asserted to have proceeded from the unhappy girl in her death struggle. But none of these cries had been heard in the immediate neighborhood of the archway. All the inhabitants of that part of the town agreed that in their waking hours the streets had been perfectly still. Nor were there any traces visible of a struggle having taken place. Lieschen might have been murdered elsewhere, and her corpse quietly deposited where it was found, as far as any evidence went. Wild and vague were the conjectures. All were baffled in the attempt to give them a definite direction. The crime was face mask children medical disposable apparently prompted by revenge certainly not by lust, or desire of money. But she was not known to stand in any one s way. In this utter blank as to the assignable motive, I, perhaps alone among the furious crowd, had a distinct suspicion of the assassin. No sooner had the news reached me, than with the specification of the theater of the crime there at once flashed upon me the intellectual vision of the criminal the stranger with the dark beard and startled eyes stood confessed before me I.
convulsions but here, at our door, a young girl had been murdered, and two hearths made desolate. Rumors continued to fly about. The assassin was always about to be discovered but he remained shrouded in impenetrable darkness. A remark made by Bourgonef struck me much. Our host, Zum Bayerischen Hof, one day announced with great 3m cool flow dust mask satisfaction that he had himself heard from the syndic that the police were on the traces of the assassin. I am sorry to hear it, said Bourgonef. The guests paused from eating, and looked at him with astonishment. It is a proof, he added, that even the police now give it up as hopeless. I always notice that whenever the police are said to be on the traces the malefactor is never tracked. When they are on his traces they wisely say nothing about it they allow it to be believed that they are baffled, in order to lull their victim into a dangerous security. When they know themselves to be baffled, there is no danger in quieting the public mind, and saving their own credit, by announcing that they are about to be successful. IV A DISCOVERY Bourgonef s remark had been but too sagacious. The police were hoplessly baffled. In all such cases possible success depends upon the initial suggestion either of a motive which leads to a suspicion of the person, or of some person which leads to a suspicion of the motive. Once set uline mats suspicion on the right track, and evidence is suddenly alight in all quarters. But, unhappily, in the present case there was no assignable motive, no shadow darkening any person. An episode now came to our knowledge in which Bourgonef manifested an unusual depth of interest. I was led to notice this interest, because it had seemed to me that in the crime itself, and the discussions which arose out of it, he uline mats shared but little of the universal excitement. I do not mean that he was indifferent by uline mats no means but the horror of the crime did not seem to fascinate his imagination as it fascinated ours. He could talk quite as readily of other things, and far more readily of the French affairs. But on the contrary, in this new episode he showed peculiar interest. It appeared that Lehfeldt, moved, perhaps, partly by a sense of the injustice which had been done to Kerkel in even suspecting him of the crime, and in submitting him to an examination more poignantly affecting to him under such circumstances than a public trial would have been under others and moved partly by the sense that Lieschen s love had practically drawn Kerkel within the family for her choice of him as a husband had made him morally, if not legally, a son in law and moved partly by the sense of loneliness which had now settled on th.Death. But if this idea was not, even then, altogether adopted, I could at least doubt no longer, when, arising from the bed, tottering, with feeble steps, with closed eyes, and with the manner of one bewildered in a dream, the thing that was enshrouded advanced boldly and palpably into the middle of the apartment. I trembled not I stirred not for a crowd of unutterable fancies connected with the air, the stature, the demeanor, of the figure, rushing hurriedly through my brain, had paralyzed had chilled me into stone. I stirred not but gazed upon the apparition. There was a mad disorder in my thoughts a tumult unappeasable. Could it, indeed, be the living Rowena who confronted me Could it, indeed, be Rowena at all the fair haired, the blue eyed Lady Rowena Trevanion of Tremaine Why, why should I doubt it The bandage lay heavily about the mouth but then might it uline mats not be the mouth of the breathing Lady of Tremaine And the cheeks there were the roses as in her noon of life yes, these might indeed be the fair cheeks of the living Lady of Tremaine. And the chin, with its dimples, face mask to avoid germs as in health, might it not be hers but had she then grown taller since her malady What inexpressible madness seized me with that thought One bound, and I had reached her feet Shrinking from my touch, she let fall from her head, unloosened, the ghastly cerements which had confined it, and there streamed forth into the rushing atmosphere of the chamber huge masses of long and disheveled hair it was blacker than the raven wings of midnight. And now slowly opened the eyes of the figure which stood before me. Here then, at least, I shrieked aloud, can I never can I never be mistaken these are the full, and the black, and the wild eyes of my lost love of the Lady of the LADY LIGEIA. The Haunted Orchard By RICHARD LE GALLIENNE From Harper s Magazine, January, 1912. By permission of Harper and Brothers and Richard Le Gallienne. Spring was once more in the world. germ protection face masks As she sang to herself in the faraway woodlands her voice reached even the ears of the city, weary with the long winter. Daffodils flowered at the entrances to the Subway, furniture removing vans blocked the side streets, children clustered like blossoms on the doorsteps, the open cars were running, and the cry of the cash clo man was once more heard in the land. Yes, it was the spring, and the city dreamed wistfully of lilacs and the dewy piping of birds in gnarled old apple trees, of dogwood lighting up with sudden silver the thickening woods, of water plants unfolding their glossy scrolls in pools of morning freshness. On Sunday mornings, the outbound trains were thronged with eager pilgrims, hasteni.es off the same artist has made my ears as big as that clown s and everyone knows a monkey hasn t any ears to speak of much less to draw. He should be prosecuted, remarked the clown, gloomily. I haven t any back. Jane Gladys looked from one to the other with a puzzled expression upon her sweet face, uline mats and turned another page of the book. Swift as a flash there sprang over her shoulder a tawney, uline mats spotted leopard, which landed upon the back of a big uline mats leather armchair and turned upon the others with a fierce movement. The monkey climbed to the top of the chandelier and chattered with fright. The donkey tried to run and straightway tipped over on his left side. The clown grew paler than ever, but he sat still in his chair and gave a low whistle of surprise. The leopard crouched upon the back of the chair, lashed his tail from side to side and glared at all of them, by turns, including Jane Gladys. Which of us are you going to attack first asked the donkey, trying hard to get upon his feet again. I can t attack any of you, snarled the leopard. The artist made my mouth shut, so I haven t any teeth and he forgot to make my claws. But I m a frightful looking creature, nevertheless am I not Oh, yes said the clown, indifferently. I suppose you re frightful looking enough. But if you have no teeth nor claws we don t mind your looks at all. This so annoyed the leopard that he growled horribly, and the monkey laughed at him. Just then the book slipped from ffp2 mask standard the girl s lap, and as she made a movement to catch it one of the pages near the back opened wide. She caught a glimpse of a fierce grizzly bear looking at her from the page, and quickly threw the book from her. It fell with a crash in the middle of the room, but beside it stood the great grizzly, who had wrenched himself from the page before the book closed. Now, cried the leopard from his perch, you d better look out for yourselves You can t laugh at him as you did at me. The bear has both claws and teeth. Indeed I have, said the bear, in a low, deep, growling voice. And I know how to use them, too. If you read in that book you ll find I m described as a horrible, cruel and remorseless grizzly, whose only business in life is to eat up little girls shoes, dresses, ribbons and all And then, the author says, I smack my lips and glory in my wickedness. That s awful said the donkey, sitting upon his haunches and shaking his head sadly. What do you suppose possessed the author to make you so hungry for girls Do you eat animals, also The author does not mention my eating anything but little girls, replied the bear. Very good, remarked the clown, drawing a long breath of relief. you may begin.

T is n t so long as regenerating and more easier. Regenerating means making over, you know. There d ought to be children s words and grownup words, that s what I think, said Sue, decisively but what does backslider mean A backslider is one who has been climbing up a hill and suddenly begins to slip back. Does n t his feet take hold right, or why does he does wearing a mask help with air pollution slip Perhaps he can t manage his feet perhaps they just won t climb. 295 Yes, or p raps he just does n t want to climb any more but it must be frightensome, sliding backwards. I suppose it is. Is it wicked Why, yes, it is, generally perhaps always. Brother Nathan and Sister Hetty were backsliders Sister Tabitha said so. She told Jane never to speak their names again any more than if they was dead. Then you had better not speak of them, either. There s so many things better not to speak of in the world, sometimes I think t would be nicer to be an angel. Nicer, perhaps, but one has to be very good to be an angel. Backsliders could n t be angels, I s pose Not while they were backsliders but perhaps they d begin to climb again, and then in time they might grow to be angels. I should n t think likely, remarked Sue, decisively, clicking her needles as one who could settle most spiritual problems in a jiffy. I think the sliding kind is diff rent from the climbing kind, and they don t make easy angels. A long pause followed this expression of opinion, this simple division of the human race, at the start, into sheep and goats. Then presently the untiring voice broke the stillness again. Nathan and Hetty slid back when they went away from here. Did we backslide when we left Fardie and Jack I m not sure but that we did, said poor S.
