After twenty years the judgment came



Judgment does not always come so soon upon the head of the offender, and it may not come at all in the way of sudden death, but who wants to run the risk?

"A hunter was shot dead in the forest by some unknown hand. Twenty years after, his son shot at a stag, but, missing it, hit an unseen man. As he lay dying, he said to the huntsman, 'I am the man who shot your father; just here, under this oak. The very ground where we now are was dyed with his blood, and it has evidently been destined that you, son of the murdered man, should on this precise spot, without any thought or intention of such a thing, avenge the act on me. God is just,' he exclaimed, and presently expired."
