“ [172] away, and I-hope I have killed him,” were her first words on being arrested in the street and carried to the city prison. Bail was found for her at once.

Her crime has raised the poor washerwoman into the grade of heroine. Whether Cobb will Iive or die is not yet known. Kind-hearted Mrs. Cobb may be a widow, and her children fatherless; but whether Cobb survives the deed or not, his client runs no risk.
