Abou was in an admir able frame of mind. He had killed two life in surance solicitors the day before he had subscribed for the last book that had been put into the hands of canvassers, so he had a fair pros pect for a quiet day. He was musing on life, and trying to solve that great problem, wherein he was doing a most foolish thing, for life is a riddlo which will solve itself if you wait long enough. The solution can be hastened somewhat by late suppers and whisky, but it will come to all, sooner or later, without these or nny other aids. "Wise as Abou was, it never occurred to him that if there be a future he would know it in time, and if thcro should not be one the matter should not bother him much.
