But it was different now. The recollection of the face which confronted his own at the res taurant, haunted him, broke his sleep into fitful dozing, and filled these unrefreshing snatches with terrible dreams. Yet, when the bright morning came, he persuaded himself that he must have been mistaken-that he had exaggerated some chance resemblance into the identity of his dead partner. Ben's reflections touched upon what-was growing into another dreadful form of mental .;excitement. He began to fear that he had not seen the man at all, that it was merely a delu sion, a vision of the b...
