NOT PARTICULAR. Lately a photographer was visited by a man who wanted a unique ,plc ture taken. " You see, it's like this," the stranger began. " I had a girl that I loved, and we were going to get married. 'She had '?her things made up and we were all ready, when she was taken ill and died. Now, what I want is a picture of me sittin' on her grave weepin'." The ph73tographer was touched at the homely story of grief, and told him he could send a man with him to the grave, and have the picture taken as he desired. " It's some distance," the stranger explained, " and I expect it 'ud cost a lot of money to send over your traps for. what I want." The photographer said it would, whereupon his visitor added : " I thought, meble, you could rig iup a grave here in )our shop, and I would weep on it : it would do nust as well. It's no trouble for me to weep anywhere."

After more than two hours of rid ing through the forest, the party halted : Sir Edred was aided to dis mount and set upon his feet. The bandage was not taken from his eyes but his sensations as he was half led, half forced along, told him that he was being conducted through a subterranean passage of great dampness, and one exceedingly wind ing. The crackling of flames and a smoky resinous odour that accom panied him, told him also that the passage was very dark, and that some of those with him, carried torches. Now and then he could hear a whispered command, bidding him lift his feet high, to lower his head, and finnlly the cords around his arms were loosed and he was or dered- to crawl upon his hands and knees. Unable to resist, and with a heart more oppressed with dismay than at any time before, he sank to the moist and slimy earth, and crawled on. Sometimes a...
