patches from our agents In your coun
try. Governor-General Blanco would
be "very angry. I have often heard
him talk to his staff about It. And
the colonels who arrived from the
country would come In and he would
tell them the latest rumor, and they
swearing sometimes until they had
passed the church with the old tree,
and even beyond.
The governor-general used to say
that your government let us alone,
but your people did not. They were
all against us, all- on account of our
sugar .and tobacco, and we thought
your government ought' to restrain
them;' but It either did not or could
not. Every one, except the plotting
rebels, hated all of you; and Consul Consul-General
General Consul-General Lee and the rest of your peo people
ple people who were In Havana did not have
a pleasant time, altho we' Were polite
to them. And then., that winter, at
last came the news that your Consul Consul-General
General Consul-General had sent for a war-vessel to
anchor in- 'the harbor. Governor Governor-General
General Governor-General Blanco did not seem to be
angry. He was very grave. I was
there in the Toora when he read the
dispatch to the chief of artillery. He
was very angry and talked a great
deal; but the governor-general sat
very quiet and thought. He seemed
to be thinking while he was busy In
his ornce that arternoon. and was
unusually quiet, while he drest for
dinner and in the evening, altho there
were many officers at dinner, and mil military
itary military men and civilians came and went
all the evening and far into the night.
The next morning we had a larger
meeting of officers than usual, and
after they had gone he took his staff
Into an Inner room and told them his
plan. I overheard It. -I know what
I am talking about, and every word Is
true. He said that an American ship
of war would 'be In the harbor in a
few days, that your nation and ours
were at peace, and that she must be
treated with every courtesy and every
one accorded the utmost politeness.
that nothing must happen to the ship
or to any' of your people under any
circumstances, that our government
did not want war, and that we could
not engage in one with you and handle
the rebels too. He said It very earnest earnestly
ly earnestly over and over again, but he said he
knew well that when the ship had
been moored in the harbor,' If any anything
thing anything happened that angered your
people or offended her captain it would
go hard with .the city. Your Captain
oigauecr "e saiu, was a. eijr ginu uiajj,
a man of great politeness, but afraid
of nothing. He might at any moment
send one of his officers ashore with a
note saying: "Unless you Telease
such a man, or 'refrain from execut
ing such another because he is a citi citizen
zen citizen of my country, or do not do this
or that within an hour. I will open
fire on the palace and the forts. My
guns are loaded and Teady."
"That it what he will say," said the
governor-general. "That is why be Is
sent down here. And their fleet Is wait waiting
ing waiting just across at v Key West. Our
palace will be destroyed, bur forts
shot Into from the rear. There will
be flames and disorder. The rebels
will Jump out of every house, and the
city will be untenable." And It Is I
who will be blamed, altho I can not
stop the "ship from coming."
i Many plans proposed by the staff
were turned down, and in the end
Blanco suggested that they be ready
when the captain sent such a note to
. write him that his : request was re refused,
fused, refused, and that, at the flash of his
first gun which would be a declara declaration
tion declaration of -war, a mine under the war warship
ship warship would be touched off. If the
Maine' captain did not try to bully
the Spaniards, ; no blow would be
struck, and no .harm could come from
planting the mine. One of the reasons
for- planting the mine was the posi position
tion position of the Maine. It could shell the
city, but the guns of the fortress
could not return the fire, because the
battleship was directly between the
harbor defenses and the principal
part of the town: so the mine would
be Havana's only defense. The prep preparation
aration preparation of It Is here described:
An old boiler of ; a donkey-engine
was used. It was nrenared in the
fortress and was taken out on a light lighter
er lighter at night, ostensibly to "be placed
outside the harbor's mouth, but was
the mooring picked out for the ship.
They knew the exact place when they
got certain lights in range. I was not
on the lighter, but I knew all about it
that same night. And the wires were
-taken to a point on the city side of
' th hirhnr. tn a hnn f rnm o vlndnar
of which you could see a slfrnal from
Ka nflllii, Th a -Bra a A rvn A art lhaf I f
the wires were picked up accidentally
- they would not lead to any govern-
rtent DUucung. u ws a wise precau precau-intMt
intMt precau-intMt was a mistake, as we all
rw afterward. The. wires were in

cable. I saw it myself, because my

brother-in-law lived in the house.
That was another-mistake because he
turned out to-be in league with the
rebels. The box sat on a table near a
window that looked out. on the water.
My brother-in-law was not wicked,
but only weak. He believed what the
schemers told him. He Is dead, too.
The author of the story defends the
Spanish authorities by saying that
they did not Intend to harm the Am Americans
ericans Americans without provocation, and that
the honor of Blanco and his staff was
safe in any event, while the rebels
knew no such word as honor. He con
Then the Maine came. I never shall
forget -how brave she looked with
your flag standing out stiffly In the
northeast trade-winds and the sun
gleaming on her steel and brass as
she steamed slowly into the harbor
and pieked up the mooring which was
reserved for her. And the sleeping
mine was down In the mud below her.
Captain Sigsbee was accorded every
formality and courtesy. He and his
officers came and went freely every
day. But ; the crew never came on
shore: in that the captain was wise. It
was much better so. It was in the
latter part of January that the ship
arrived, and for nearly three week3
she swung at her moorings and things
went on in Havana much as before,
except that the crowd at the landing,
through which Captain Sigsbee had
to push his way every day, got denser
and their looks got blacker. The
anger of our people Increased at the
arrogance of your government In
sending the ship.
As for the rebels, they glowered at
the captain because he did nothing.
They believed that when the Maine
was sent she was coming to help them.
But we went right on with our work
concentrating them, conquering
them, putting down the rebellion, con confining
fining confining suspects, executing traitors.
And the' Maine had been in the harbor
for days, and no other ships came, no
men were landed, nothing was done.
The rebels felt sure that tie crew
were all republicans and would help
a republic if the captain would only
let them come ashore. They believed
that your country would lend its
whole strength to help their losing
cause if only your people could be
aroused. They were near to a com complete
plete complete surrender when the Maine came,
and every day It was harder for them
to hold out. They could not last
much longer. Yet your people seemed
contented to send only the Maine,
which did nothing. And so they made
a plot which was to result in arous arousing
ing arousing your people to fight us.
The aged Spaniard in the story goes
on to say that Ms brother-in-law be became

let the secret out. The rebels thought
of a grand plan If It had only work worked.

few feet away from the mine, and
then press the key, cover the battle battleship

Sigsbee, stir all America, precipitate
war between the United States and
Spain, and emerge as free Cuba. So
that very night they touched off the
mine, but misjudged the position of
the ship! the world knows the rest.

' Oranges.
Oranges a good thing to start a
breakfast with aifd a nice thing to eat
just before retiring, according to the
habits of many people. Because doc doctors
tors doctors say they are healthy, because
grocers sell them cheap, because the
housewives have little trouble work working

course and because everybody likes
them, the orange is one of the best
sellers among fruit on the local mar market.
ket. market. It probably Dever has occurred to
many people who eat oranges every
day that there are more than one va variety
riety variety of oranges or that they do not
all come from Florida. While it is
true that most of the oranges sold by
the grocers here do come from Cali California,
fornia, California, it is also a fact that Florida
furnishes the middle West, whenever
we can get her to do so. The state
o Florida sends most of her crop to
the Eastern markets and it is only oc occasionally,
casionally, occasionally, as now when the Califor California
nia California crop is not up to par, that the
markets here get Florida to "come
through" with some of her fruit, the
best grown in the states.
Oranges from Florida are just like
vegetables from there, far better than
those from California. For instance,
there is the Russet, an orange which
is heavy with juice. The skin is very
thin and little is lost in peeling.
Some of the Many Varieties.
Herman Witt the grocer, told of
a few of the many varieties of or oranges

From California there are four va varieties

Southern and Northern California

the seedling which comes later; then
the Mediterranean Sweet which grows
near the rivers and the last crop, the
Late Valencias which has a seed, but
which is very good. In California,
there is no time of the year when
there is not either a blossom or fruit
on the tree, the fruit extending from
November through July."

with juice and deliciously sweet. We
were fortunate in getting the Florida
products this year, for the first time
in years past. This was because of
the unusually poor quality of the Cal California
ifornia California fruits. The best grapefruit
also comes from Florida, I think, al although
though although we get a little from California.
California, however, supplies us with
the tangerines, the smaller sized or orange
ange orange and this year with the kumquat,
the very small sized member of the
orange family. This is eaten, skin
and all. In fact, the skin is the best
part of it. This year they have even
preserved the kumquat."
The reason for the almost uninter uninterrupted
rupted uninterrupted good crops in Florida. Mr. Witt
thinks, is because of the sandy soil
being very productive, and, added to
this, the warmth which comes to it
from the Gulf Stream. Florida, Mr.
Witt said, may be in a position to
supply the whole United States with
fruit some day when the land is prop properly

At the Tampa Bay hotel Mr. Tem Temple
ple Temple gave out the following interview
with regard to the present status of
the Florida Citrus Exchange and the
situation that it is no w confronted
by, reviewing briefly the history of
the Exchange since its organization,
which has been done In a general way
for the growers of the state, whether
members of the Exchange or not, and
for the industry in general, and ex
plaining how the Exchange stands and
why, if the necessary support is not
accorded it, dissolution must follow:
Succeeded Too Well to Succeed.
'The situation as 'it now exists is
that the Florida Citrus Exchange has
succeeded to well to succeed.
"What I mean by this is that the
Exchange in its natural operation as a
marketing agency has had a success
so phenomenal that Its own success
threatens its downfall. The fitst year
the Florida Citrus Exchange secured
for the growers affiliated with it an
average price of $1.15 a box for all
the oranges shipped by the Exchange,
f o. b. cars packing house. This
price, while very low from the pres present
ent present viewpoint of the grower, was a
much higher price than was obtained
the preceding year and was a con considerably
siderably considerably higher price than the aver average
age average for the state the year of the Ex Exchange's
change's Exchange's first operation.
"The second year the Exchange
raised the average price thirty-six
cents a box f. o. b. cars packing
house, making an average of $1.51
f. o. b. cars packing house, for all
the oranges shipped by its members.
Thig was a much higher price than
had been received for some time, but
in the opinion of the Exchange offi officials
cials officials was much lower than it should
have been and these officials believed
that the one principal cause for this
low price was the pernicious and
growing habit of shipping immature,
unripe fruits earlier in the season
than any fruit should leave the state.
"Having two years' experience dur during
ing during which every factor had been
closely observed in which to form this
opinion, they felt confident that that
opinio was tne correct one. The ex exchange
change exchange then ca6t about for the best
method of preventing, entirely if pos possible,
sible, possible, the shipment of unripe citrus
fruits from the state. They figured
that a state law preventing such ship shipments
ments shipments could be passed that would be
effective. They therefore had pre prepared
pared prepared by attorneys of national repute
a bill to present to the legislature of
the state of Florida in its session of
1911, calculated to have this effect
The bill was bitterly contested and
when finally passed had been mate materially
rially materially amended from its original form.
However, a bill was passed having
this object in view. Unfortunately,
the bill was so worded that It could

not be effective witbest Lne sympa sympathy

the place to discuss the steps taken
to endeavor to enlist the sympathy of
the late Commissioner McLin to aid
the Exchange in carrying out this in intention.
tention. intention. It is sufficient to say that he
positively refused to lend either his
aid or encouragement.
"Poison Telegram."
"Determined to at least curtail
greea fruit shipments and driven
from one subterfuge to another the
now famous 'poison telegram was
found reasonably effective in that it
stopped the shipment of about one one-half
half one-half the contemplated green fruit to
the Northern markets and the other
one-half when shipped was in nearly
every case rejected or arrival because
it was unsaleable. Result: Instead
of, as confidently predicted, the kill killing
ing killing of the market for Florida oranges
they have enjoyed a demand all over
the United States from Maine to Tex Texas
as Texas and from Georgia t Washington,
which is unprecedented, and the in increase
crease increase in price this year over last
will be greater than that of last year
over the preceding one.
"A price of eighty-five cents a box
on trees for oranges and a price of
$1 a box on the trees for grapefruit
makes the citrus raising a very profit profitable
able profitable proposition. A grower in Flor Florida
ida Florida who does not produce his citrus
fruit for fifty cents a box or less
should change his business, as he is
unfitted for that of citrus growing.
Either he has mismanaged his prop property,
erty, property, or he has been Incompetent in
selecting his property to begin with,
and in either case he should change
his business. The prices that the cit citrus
rus citrus exchange has made it possible for
growers either in or outslda the Ex Exchange
change Exchange to obtain this year for their
fruit are nearly double the profitable
price named for oranges and more
than three times the profitable price
named for grapefruit.
"To the casual observer this would
seem to have so endeared the Ex Exchange
change Exchange and its methods to the Florida
growers that they would have flock flocked
ed flocked in a bouy into the Exchange. But
just the contrary has been the re result.
sult. result. The reason for it apparently is
this: The legitimate trade in citrus
fruits, having discovered during the
last few years that the Exchange In Instead
stead Instead of being a disturbing factor in
the market's unsettling prices by
naming ridiculously low ones, has
been the steadying factor In constant constantly
ly constantly raising prices. These legitimate
buyers, therefore, have been enabled
to offer to the growers higher prices
for their fruit on the trees than they
have ever before received and the
growers aparently feeling that this
condition if not too 'good to be true,
was at least too good to last, have
fallen over themselves In accepting
these prices, even though they were
from 20 to 40 per cent. below the
prices being obtained by the Exchange
for its members.
"Result: The Florida citrus crop
brings into the state of Florida this
year even with its short crop more

money than has ever been brought
into the state before, regardless of
the size of the crop preceding and
the Florida Citrus Exchange will han handle
dle handle 100,000 boxes less than it did last
Conclusion Not aVTheory.
"In the language of the late Grovr
Cleveland 'a condition and not a the theory'
ory' theory' now confronts the Exchange. It
costs money to operate properly a
marketing agency of the scope of the
Florida Citrus Exchange. Economize
as much as you will, an annual ex
pense in excess of $100,000 a year is a
minimum. This means that with 750,-
000 boxes of fruit in the mere matter
of expense for marketing alone an Ex Exchange
change Exchange cannot operate for less than
fifteen cents a box and It realy should
be a minimum of fifteen cents a box
for 1,000,000 boxes, which should be
not less than $100,000 a year in ad addition.
dition. addition. It Is., therefore, safe to say
that the first million boxes without
advertising, marketed by the Ex Exchange
change Exchange can be marketed for fifteen
cents a box and each additional box
above this will cost six cents more,
which would make the total cost for
handling a 5,000,000 box crop approx approximately
imately approximately seven ents a box without
"In addition to the matter of ex expense

feature is that while the Exchange
can, with a million boxes of fruit,
protect its markets and its distribu distributors

wild outside fruit, the Exchange can cannot

withstand the attack of eight million
boxes hurled at it by Incompetent or

not feel inclined to try it knowing
that such effort is foredoomed to fail failure.
ure. failure. It is, therefore, the concensus
of opinion among those who have
formulated the Exchange plan and
have struggled through three long,
bittter years to place it where It now
stands that i't Is better to retire grace gracefully
fully gracefully from the field with the banner
of victory in their hands rather than
court certain disaster by attempting
the impossible. They have, therefore,
called this convention of all the cit citrus
rus citrus growers in the state of Florida to
be held at the Tampa Bay Casino,
Thursday, April 18, in order to coun counsel
sel counsel together as to whether it is the
desire of the citrus growers, for
whom this movement was created, to
continue it or abandon it."

no little danger of finding themselves
under the wheels of an auto or the

an old gentleman stepping on the
train, one day this week, come in a
foot on two of being run over by an
auto managed by a young man who
was paying more attention to a group
of girls on the sidewalk than to the
road In front of him. People, partic

train, have no way of telling the ap approach

on the bottom steps, lean out and look,

for either carriages or autos to pass
at that time. The city authorities
should act in the matter before some

"Did it ever occur to you," began
Enid Maitland gravely enough, for she
quite realized the serious nature of
the Impending conversation, "did it
ever occur to you that you know prac practically
tically practically all about me, while I know
practically nothing about you?"
The man bowed his head.
"You may have fancied that I was
not aware of it, but in one way or
another you have possessed yourself
of pretty all of my short and, until
I met you, most uneventful life," she
Newbold might have answered that
there was one subject which had been
casually, introduced by her upon one
occasion and to which she had never
again referred, but which was to him
the most important of all subjects con
nected with her; and that was the na nature
ture nature of her relationship to one James
Armstrong whose name, although
he had heard it but once, he had not
forgotten. The girl had been frank frankness
ness frankness itself in following his deft leads
when he talked with her about her herself,
self, herself, but she had shown the same re
ticence in recurring to Armstrong
that he had displayed in questioning
her about him. The statement she
had just made as to his acquaintance
with her history was therefore suffi
ciently near the truth to pass un
challenged, and once again he gravely
bowed in acquiescence.
"I have withheld nothing from you,'
went on the girl, "whatever you want wanted
ed wanted to know, I have told you. I had
nothing to conceal, as you have found
out. Why you wanted to know about
me, I am not quite sure."
"It was because burst out the
man impetuously, and then he stopped
abruptly and just in time.
Enid Maitland smiled at him in a
way that indicated she knew what
was behind the sudden check he had
imposed upon himself.

"Your desire then has been grat

even sure about your name. I have
seen it in these books and naturally
I have imagined that it is yours."
"It is mine."
"Well, that is really all that I know
about you. And now I shall be quite
frank. I want to know more. You
evidently have something to conceal
or you would not be living here in
this way. I have never asked you
about yourself, or manifested the
least curiosity to solve the problem
you present, to find the solution of the
mystery of your life."
Perhaps," said the man, you
didn't care enough about it to take
the trouble to Inquire."
"You kmow," answered the girl,
"that Is not true. I have been con
sumed with desire to know."
. "A woman's curiosity?"
"Not that," was the soft answer
that turned away his wrath.
She was indeed frank. There was
that In her way of uttering those two
simple words that set his pulses
bounding. He was not altogether and
absolutely blind.
"Come." said the girl, extending her
hand to him, "we are alone here to

way, "I mean that I am sure that

not wish to force -your confidence, I
have no right to do so, yet I should

me? I want to help you, I want to

what you have been to me and have
done for me."
"I ask but one thing." he said quick quickly.
ly. quickly. "And what is that?"
But again he checked himself.

-No," he said, "1 am not free to ask

anything of you."
And that answer to Enid Maitland
was like a knife thrust in the heart.
The two had been standing confront
ing each other. Her heart grew
faint within her. She stretched out
her hand vaguely as if for support.
He stepped toward her, but before he
reached her, she caught the back of
the chair and sank down weakly.
That he should be bound and not free
had never once occurred to her; she
had quite misinterpreted the meaning
of his remark.
The man did not help her, he could
not help her. He just stood and
looked at her. She fought valiantly
for self-control a moment or two and
then, utterly oblivious to the betrayal
of her feelings Involved in the ques question

consideration of such trivial matters
she faltered.
"You mean there is some other wo

"I don't understand. There was

"Where is she now?"
"But you said you were not free."
He nodded.
"Did you care so much for her that

"Enid," he cried desperately. "Be
lieve me, I never knew what love
was until I met you."
The secret was out now; it had
been known to her long since, but
now it was publicly proclaimed.
Even a man as blind, as obsessed, as
he could not mistake the joy that il illuminated
luminated illuminated her face at this announce

produced aupon him, however, a very
different effect than might have been
anticipated. Had he been free, in indeed,

with kisses broken by whispered
words of passionate endearment. In Instead

"I am a murderer," he broke out
harshly. "There is blood upon my
hands, the blood of a woman who
loved me and whom, boy as I was, I
thought that I )oved. She was my
wife, I killed her."
"Great God," cried the girl amazed
beyond measure or expectation by
this sudden avowal which she had
once suspected, and her hand instinct instinctively
ively instinctively went to the bosom of her dress
where she kept that soiled, water
stained packet of letters, "are you
that man?"
"I am the man that did that thing,
but what do you know?" he asked
quickly, amazed In his turn.
"Old Kirkby, my uncle Robert Mait Maitland,

that you had disappeared from the
haunts of men

until God took me. To cherish my
memories, to make such expiation as
I could to pray daily for forgiveness,
I came here to the wildest, the most
Inaccessible, the loneliest, spot in the
range. No one ever would come here
I fancied, no one ever did come but
you. I was happy after a fashion, or
at least content. I had chosen the
better part. I had work, I could read,
write, remember and dream. But you
came and since that time life has
been heaven and hell. Heaven be because
cause because I love you, hell because to love
you means disloyalty to the past, to
a woman who loved me. Heaven be because
cause because you are here; I can hear your
voice, I can see you, your soul is
spread out before ma in its sweetness,
in its purity; hell because I am false
to my determination, to my vow, to
the love of the past."
"And did you love her so much,
then?" asked the girl, now fiercely
jealous and forgetful of other things
for the moment.
"It's not that," said the man. "I
was not much more than a boy, a year
or two out of college. I had been In
the mountains a year, this woman
lived in a mining camp, she was a
fresh, clean healthy girl, her father
died and the whole camp fathered her,
looked after her, and all the young
men in the range for miles on either

to me, pleaded with me, implored me
to take her with me, insisted on go going

what there was in me to have in inspired

speak the truth, however it may
sound. She seemed wild, crazy about
me. I didn't understand it, frankly I
didn't know what such love was then
but I took her along. Shall I not be
honest with you? In spite of the at attraction

even then that she was not the mate
for me. I don't deserve it, and it

when I came to my senses was
to sacrifice myself to her mem memory
ory memory because she had loved me so; as
it was she gave up her life for me;
I could do no less than be true and
loyal to the remembrance. It wasn't
a sacrifice either until you came, but
as soon as you opened your eyes and
looked into mine in the rain and the
storm upon the rock to which I had
carried you after I had fought for you,

I knew that I loved you. I knew that
the love that had come Into my heart
was the love of which I had dreamed,
that everything that had gone before
was nothing, that I had found the one

to you?"
"What are words? The heart

us. I had fought for you, you were
mine, mine. My heart sang it as I
panted and struggled over the rocks
carrying you. It said the words again
and again as I laid you down here in
this cabin. It repeated them over and
over: mine, mine! It says that every
day and hour. And yet honor and
fidelity bid me stay. I am free, yet
bound; free to love you, but not to
take you. My heart says yes, my con conscience

that last question, almost as if he had
offered it to her. She made the best
answer possible to his demand, for be before

be at, she had seized his hand and
kissed it and this time it was the man
whose knees gave way. He sank
down In the chair and buried his face
in his hands.
"Oh, God! Oh, God!" he cried in
his humiliation and shame, "if I had

like a monk to the past, i have neen
weak, a fooL I lore you and my hon honor
or honor goes, I love you- and my self -respect
goes. I love you and my pride goes.
Would to God I could say I love you
and my life goes and end It all. He
stared at her a little space. There
Is only one way of satisfaction in It
all, one gleam of comfort, he added
"And what Is that?"
"Yon don't know what the suffering
Is, you dont understand, you don't
"And why not?
"Because you do not love me."
"But I do." said the woman quite
simply as If it were a matter ol
course not only that she should love
him, but that she should also tell him
so. ;
The man stared at uer amazed.
Such fierce surges of Joy throbbed
through him as he had not thought
the human frame could sustain. This
woman loved him. In some strange
way he had gained her affection: It
was impossible, yet-she had said so!

He had been a blind fool. He could
see that now. She stood before him
and smiled up at him, looking at him
through eyes misted with tears, with
Hps parted, with color coming and go going
ing going in her cheek and with her bosom
rising and falling. She loved him, he
had but to step nearer to her to take
her In his arms. There was a trust,
devotion, surrender, everything. In her
attitude, and between them like that
great gulf which lay between the rich
man and the beggar, that separated
heaven and hell, was that he could
not cross.
"I never dreamed, I never hoped
oh," he exclaimed as if he got his
death wound, "this cannot be borne."
He turned away but in two swift
steps she caught him.
"Where do you go?"
"Out, put into the night
"You cannot go now, it is dark;
hark to the storm, you wodd miss
your footing you would fall, you would
freeze, you would die."
"What matters that?"
"I cannot have it."
"It would be better so."
He strove again to wrench himself
away, but she would not be denied.
She clung to him tenaciously.
"I will not let you go unless you
give me your word of honor that you
will not leave the plateau, and that
you will come back to me."
"1 tell you that the quicker and
more surely I go out of life, the hap happier
pier happier and better it will be for you."
"And I tell you," said the woaiaa
resolutely, "that you can never go out
of my life again, living or dead." She
released him with one hand and laid
It upon her heart. "You are here."
"Enid," cried the man.
"No," she thrust him gently away
with one hand yet detained him with
the other that was emblematic oi
the situation between them. "Not
now, not yet. let me think, but prom promise
ise promise me you will do yourself no harm,
you will let nothing Imperil your life."
"As you will," said the man regret
fully. "I had purposed to end It now
and forever, but I promise."
"Your word of honor?"
"My word of honor."
"And you won't break it."
T never broke It to a human being,
much less will I do so to you!"
She released him, he went into the
other room and she heand him crosH
the floor and open the door and go
out into the night, into the storm
