Bill Sikes was determined to make one last effort for his life by dropping into the creek, and endeavouring to creep away in the darkness and confusion. 

Close by him was a chimney. He set his foot against it, fastened one end of the cord tightly round it, and with the other made a strong running loop. He could let himself down by the cord to within a few feet of the creek then cut it there and drop. 

He had his knife ready in his hand, but at the very instant that he brought the loop over his head, something seemed to make him turn. He stared behind him on the roof, and threw his arms above his head and uttered a yell of terror. "The eyes again!" he cried. 

Staggering as if struck by lightning, he lost his balance and tumbled over the parapet. The noose was on his neck. It ran up with his weight and tightened. He fell for five-and-thirty feet. There was a sudden jerk - and there he hung, with the open knife still clenched in his stiffening hand.
