He left lus victhn welterin in his blood, and rushed nround pietending to look for n hack to take him home; for a doctor to take care of him; for an offlcer to give himself up to, and for a lawyer to defend him. He only succeeded in the last. While without lus help the officers found him, and the hack and doctor found the wounded man.
