wife addressed the fire but ttie doctor answered He knew It was useless to try to read when his wife had something on her mind II wonder whats going to become of us said the doctors wife Of whom1 asked the doctor Of us Americans Whats thq matter now questioned the doctor Im wondering where our American housekeepers are coming from This afternoon Just as I passed a big office building three girls bathe out and walked ahead of me You sho ld Have seen how they were dressed and how they acted Young girls Of course Well how were they dressed You know it was the usual way hair puffed out short skirts low necks I dont object to all of that You dont want them to dress like back numbers But you should have seen their shoes and stockings Dont I know You neednt tell me about the astonishing lack of sense that some women display And men too Oh well men too I suppose But you started the conversation about girls Yes I was going to tell you Tjiose three girls were dressed as thin as could be Not tine of them had on a wrap and you know how cold and damp its been today But that wasnt the worst Two had on velvet shoes and the other girl had on satin ones that were all run down at the heels and the satin torn All of the three had on such short skirts that yqu could see their thin flimsy silk stock Ings In fact I thought one had on black and white stockings till I noticed that the white spots were place where the stitches had given out Well what about all that- I walked back of them to the corner of the next street They crossed the muddy dirty pavement and I know they must have got their feet wet I watched them for a few mln ntes and saw them go into a cheap ice cream parlor and then And then what Well Ive been thinking How can such girls keep house and have homes that give a man a chance to make something of himself Thy cant Then whats going to become of us Americans Ask the university professors Im only a doctor Oh I know what the university professors say They tell you that our hope lies in the immigrants the people from the country and all that But ten to one these were daughters of Immigrants or country girls them selves Do you know madam that I sat down bere to read my newspaper Yes I know But Im thinking Anyway I didnt ask you to answer You dont have to answer if you dont want to You see J dont1 believe In darning and mending as mucn as my mother did We dont have to Times are different and things dont have to last so long but girls should be taught to take care of thIngs to a rea sonable extent The man laid down his newspaper Im surprised at you he said Why Dont you know that the majority of people are abnormal- I really never thought about that Maybe youre right Peoplo are kind of crazy nowadays I believe Its yery unstylish to dress warm and comfortable when the weathers cold and women surely are crazy about their hats and shqesMrpm their beads to their feet I tell its k facts said the dc tor Im not Joking Dont I see It In ay Luslnt33 cvary t1I suppose you do Doctors ought to understand people if anybody does But if we think most persons are abnormal what are we Ddnt know I think were normal if everybody else is abnormal and we are the only ones who are nor mnJI suppose all the others think were crazy Maybe we are Well said the docto wife slowly after thinking it over you may be but I know Im not Chicago Dallv VOWR f t Do Ope

told herself as she swept a hand across her wide intelligent eyes From the room below which was called parlor came the refrain of Oh You Beautiful Dodd thou Every Little Movement The tone from the piano Itself was like the Jangle of many discordant tins but the ihifclc Malvina stopped her ears then with quick movements slipped Into her white jersey and out Into ttto cool mountain air Her serves were In dire need of calm and quiet She walked on with llghtenedlieart Thepungent odor of balSam and the cool breezes from the lake soothed her She approached a small camp with eager steps How had this jewel In the forest escaped her before The yqung author did not stop tto realize that this was her first venture Into the depths of the woods And with the writers longing for seclusion Malvina pictured herself ensconsed In that picturesque camp She felt that all of her budding plot would burst Into full bloom and that her name would appear In many of the maga zines Even under tho trying position of IJvlng In boarding houses Malvinas work had found favor with two or three editors James Blake of the Comet had been especially attracted ttd her stories She hoped before long to meet him He had been a great help to her The girls Imaginings had brought her to the door of the camp Her eyes opened wide in surprise The place was open at doors and windows and was apparently without an Inhabitant Malvinas heart quickened Its beat Perhaps she could run away from the boarding hous with her little typewriter und work here In this wonder house Inside all was rough but not without a sense of the artistic Malvina came to the quick conclusion that a man who was fond of bunting ownr the cap and that was there otily ilirng till hunting euson With Joyous feet she hurried back to he boarding house and from there to the village store It was Impera Live to Malvina that when wrltfng she have pink flowered curtains and a pink kimono The latter she already bad The pink curtains which she would tack up In tho camp must be purchased at the one village store It was the following day before she crrlved at the llttte house She was laden with her typewriter her pink curtains her tea equipment and her pink kimono Malvina was tired but happy when the threw herself down on the wldo ouch for a moments rest The camp had been turned Into a bower of pink and odd dishes of wild flowers were scattered about Outside at the edge of tho forest a big man swung along with an old handbag In one band and his fishing paraphernalia In the other When he drew near an indefinable something stirred within him Never before during the many summers he had spent In the mountains had his camp seemed desirous Blake quickened his pace and sprang up to tbo veranda IThstop ped before ho had entered held by the glimmer of plnfcat the windows Instinctively Blake removed his soft hat before going Inside He caught a quick breath and stood as If suddenly fast to his surroundings By all the laws of propriety Blake should have turned and left his own camp But ho could not move with the sight of Malvina pictured before him She was In a sound sleep and her cheeks were flushed Her glorious hair was a mass of spun copper that trailed over the cushionIThe power of his eyes disturbed her and she stirred Blake spell bound watched the heavy lashes flutter then rise slowly up to reveal her eyesBlake then came to his senses and turned toward the door Ho waited outside on tho veranda until she should come He felt that she Would follow Immediately Malvina did I suppose you are the hunter who Invited wayfarers Into your camp she asked with a half smileAnd you are the wayfarer RInk returned because he could think of nothing else or ho moment I supposed the hunting season dM not begin untiL later Malvlna smiled halt wistfully It does not But fishing suits mo almost as well and since the Comet needs me In the fall And you need your own camp now Malvina Interrupted It Is time for me to depart Not at aUI intend to stay at a boarding place nearby whore I shall not have to bother even with my own menger fare But Malvina would not remain she felt that she must go and since Blake had insisted that he preferred to stjjy at the boarding place ho must needs go whether or not he liked Thus the two found themselves at the tabie of the mountain boarding house and it was In that once despised parlor thatnot a month later Mai rhia promised to marry James Blake editor L Shoulders and Desks Symmetry In the arrangement of seats and desks In school rooms work against health of the

she could not see you or any one else now i was puzzled beyond expression Why should Louise refuse to seeme 1 was conscious of haying done nothing to offend her If only I could see her for justa minute to find out what was toe matterl I felt that I must reach her For an Instant I was tempted to brush past the maid and force my way In Surely Louise of her own accord would not treat me thus She must be beside herself with met Perhaps she was under the lame malign Influence that so dls tressed her sister Yet even in the depths of despair we observe the con renUonallUes Will you ask Miss Louise when the can see me I found myself say lug In carm tones to the maid Again she closed the door in my race Again I waited Miss Louise says that she will see rou If you will return In an hour was toe message that was broughtlne I left the Farrish door and stumbled blindly up the street The plight In which I found myself seemed inexpll able maddening I was sure Louise loved me Had she not turned to me tri toe first hour of her distress Had ihe not telephoned me when her ala ter shot herself Had she not permU- ted me to take her In my arms Had ihe not commissioned me to solve the mystery of the yellow letter YetIwhy had she bade me discontinue rch Why had she shut her IleameT What could be her igainst could meT have Influenced doorI emoIicnseet were me raced my steps for I found myselfI n the block where the Farrlshs looked at my watch and saw It was itill half an hour before the time 1 mad been told to return I turned way from the house and wandered Umlessly on There was some mys ery In Louises conduct 1 could not athom She refused to see me yet lust ahead of me some one else had ieen admitted to the house A wave f Jealousy swept Over me Who wasI this other man I racked my brain striving to recall his appearance try ing to remember what there twas that was familiar about him All at once it came to me A wild rage filled me I knew now who he was A picture t f the omce in that little hotel In New Jersey came to mind as I looked when I ltoodI the stove drying my clothes A had come to toe desk and got his key and had walked past as he went to his room I knew now where I had seen that man who was admitted to the Farrish home Itwas the man called Cook It was Hugh CrandalL CHAPTER X Who Was the Thief An unbidden and unwelcome gue Jealousy came and sat by the altar of I my heart stirring the fires of my love Louise Into furious darts of flame 1for scarred my souL That Crandall I was positive now that the vis Iitor who had entered the Farrish home bad been be should have been admitted to tbe house with so many things pointed to his guilt while I an accepted lover and certainly Louise faithful servitor bad been barred with inch scant courtesy filled me with dumb unreasoning rage I felt that all claims of friendship and of service even disregarding the still stronger claims of honest love entitled me to tar different treatmentVYet even In toe burst of anger that overwhelmed me there was not a single thought of harshness toward Louise I felt that If I could but see her she would explain everything sat- Isfactorily It was toward Crandall that all my wrath wall directed Feel lug as I did sure that he was respon sible for Katharines attempted sui cide and for her poor fathers plight I feared that his visit to the house boded ill for Louise Undoubtedly hits mallsm influence had persuaded her to bid me drop my efforts to solve the mystery He must have realized that I was close on his trail so dangerously close that with the effrontery tfIthe daring criminal he had ventured come to the house In One last effort to thwart my plans for his exposure As I became calmer I resolved ona course of action Louises strange request to me over the telephone must have been made because she was dom inated by the fear of this villain who had brought disaster on her father and sister Perhaps she feared that some evil might befall me If I persisted In trying to rttn him to earth Possibly she was afraid that still greater evil might come to those she loved I felt that for her own happiness it was nec esrary that I should continue my course I would go on with my inves tigatlon and once for all free her from the crushing thrall of this hidden evil I would wait where I was until Cran dall hud left the house then I would Insist on seeing her and telling her my resolve nor would I permit her to dissuade me from it On the corner was a drugstore Sheltered by its awning I took my stand to wait until Crandall left the house I could seq the Farrish door yet my presence there under the awn lag would hardly be noticed I had not long to wait In about five min utes the door opened and the caller emerged This time 1had an opportu nity to get a good look at him I was right His face was that of the man who had been registered In the Ard way hotel as Henry Cook who had so abruptly left toe room when the in quest was being held as I had begun Jetterhind the fastt horse obtainable He came swinging down the street I closerIhlltacoa not the unnaturrJ color of toe tdfpnlnd tisert that iMpeett trot ruddy with health His eyes however wore a strained expression and his Drow was knotted with7 wrinkles I was strongly tempted ft spring out from where I stood asfrJe passed to wLei him by the throa and to make him tell me all I withed Ito know about the hideous mystery Y t better Judg nent withheld my all the evidence I had was I1qtof the tangible hiAlter hisIl house sven though we had round In his rooms a hypodermic syringe and

and I vowed that I would I dont know what your motive Is in making this strange request but I cant believe you are doing it of your own volition I am certain that you are Influenced by fear fear lest some greater evil will befall If my efforts to untnask the criminal are success ful Is it not so Dont ask me Harding she begged piteously I cant tell y6u It Is not my secret I can tell you nothing Please dont ask me IMore than ever now I was convinced that far of Crandall dominated her Quickly following on his telephone message he had pcome to the house and had cast over her the same mys terious spell as had fallen on her sis ter More than ever was I determined ItsIa In the power of some hid den criminal who might prey on her as he had done on the other members of her family I felt It my duty toward her to go on and If I could compel her to divulge something of what she was holding back from me Why did you want that bit of the yellow letter What were you going to do with itI cant tell you Please dont ask meJIWhy do you want me to stop my In II cant tell you Please dont askt doingII herIwas going to faint With a great effort she recovered and looking me straight in the eye she answered soft ly Mr Crandall was not here this morning What made you think he was iI did not try to conceal the open eyed amazement with which I stared at her as she gave me this unequivocal reply What could It meanT I could not would not believe that this high principled honorable girl would wilfully deceive me yet I was as sure as that I was standing there that Hugh Crandall had been in the house that morning Could it have been that he had entered without her knowl thaIhome was his pay and had permitted him to enter without Louises knowledge That might explain the rifling of the locked desk The maid might kpow of Lou j Ises habit of hiding the key in a vase It began to look as if I had a solution of this new mystery Yet It could hardly be possible for Crandall to have been In the house for fully half an hour without Louise knowing It Furthermore why had admittance been denied me when I first called I saw Hugh Crandall leaving this house not ten minutes ago I said ReallySHer tone was cold hard forced though she tried to make It sound natural If was he who broke open your desk I cried He wanted to regain possession of that scrap of paper and thus remove all evidence of his guilt I am afraid said Louise with the manner of offended dignity that you are entirely mistaken I was not aware that you knew Mr Crandall by sight If that wasnt Hugh Crandall who came out of your house 3ust now who was it I asked my anger at this man whom I believed responsible for the chain of evil getting the better of me I dont know Crandall but I know the evil he Is responsible for for the tragedy of your sister the plight of your father the suicide of old Andrew Elser the suicide of that poor woman out In Ardway Why not an hour ago I helped drag from the park lake a fifth victim a poor young girl driven to death by another of his accursed yellow letters I found the fragments of it watersoaked and illeg ible in the lake Mr Kent interrupted Louise you wore kind enough to undertake a mis sion on my behalf and I appreciate it greatly Certain circumstances have arisen that have entirely altered mat ters I called you up last night and asked you to drop all investigations You have said that you love me By that love you say you hold for me I now ask you nomoreI order you to make no further attempts to solve the mystery please Harding please Her voice broke and with one last gesture of appeal she flung herself into a chair and covered her face with her hands Perplexed beyond measurp with the turn affairs had taken with my heart aching with sympathy for her I stood watching lier slender form as it shook with sobs trying to make up my mind what to do My heart bade me prom Iso her anything everything If it would bring her peace of mind yet my brain told me that it was best for her best for every one If I should go ahead as my friend the Inspector had advisedVLouise I began trying to keep my voice steady If you will answer me one question Dont Harding please dont she sobbed lifting her tearstained face to me in entreaty You mustnt You mustnt ask me any questions If you love me please do just as I say Louise I replied almost stdrnlyi you are not yourself Cant you rely on me Cant you trust me Dont you know that I will do nothing that is not for toe best I gathered her into my arms and held her close I Dressed mr lies J against her rragrant nair wnere ra strayed from under her automobile bonnet As she lay unresfztiing in my arms her sobs decreased and she be camnecalmer JMy darling Isald1ft kufow that Hugh Crandall has been here I feel that he has been influencing you riiI Saw Hugh Crandall Leaving This House Not Ten Minutes Ago against me Wont you do what your heart bids you and tell me every thing about It She drew a long deep breath and gently freed herself from my encir cling arms and facing me looked at me with firm resolution written all over her lovely face You must dp what I tell you I can ansWer no questions I wish I could but I cant You mustnt ak me It Isnt my secret Tho car is waiting Miss Louise As the maids voice Interrupted sheI gave a start and reaching her out Impulsively to me in more like her own dear voice said to me Harding I must go Please trust me and please please do what I ask of you Goodby She broke from my encircling herF and ran to time front door By the time I reached It hfter she was already in the car I tried to catch the direction she whispered to the chauffeur but coulct not IeforeI I could collect my thoughts the great sixty horsepower machine had vanished around the corner Where was she going It seemed me that every hour added to the chain of mysteries in which I bad become involved I was convinced that in some way Louise too had been ensnared by the master of crime who hac nlotted all this evil but how I could ot imagine Yet more and more it seemed to me all clues pointed to Hugh Crandall What conld have bten Louises motive In denying to me that he had been in the house She must have known itI began to wish that I had taken Davis advice and remained In Ard way Perhaps by this time I would have had some definite clue J resolved to go back there at once The Inspector seemed to think that that was the most fruitful field for Investi gation and probably he was right Hailing a taxi I bade him drive me to the ferry butto my great annoy ance reached it just two minutes too late to make a train Too dispirited to do anything else I entered the wait fag ferryboat and sinking into a seat in the corner gave myself up td bitter reflection on my failure to solve the problem I had set myself The more I thought about it the more firmly I became convinced that it was wise to disregard Louises request My love for her my duty to her demanded that I go oifc So absorbed was I in my reflections that I did not notice that the boat had reached its slip and I was almost the last to leave it Just as I stepped off the gangplank a huge machine shot by me giving me hardly time to catch a look at the occupants but In that fleeting glimpse I recognized them bothIIt was Louise with Hugh CrandalL CHAPTER XI IMqre Discoveries The worse the injury the less it hurts at the moment I once saw aI man with both llogs cut off laughing and joking with the men who pulled him from under a car Though he died In ten minutes I doubt if he nut fered half as much as if he had bumped his head orhad run a splinter under his thumbnail It is when you are mortally hurt and live that the pain becomes terrible In the few minutes I had bad with Louise I had not realized the depth of the wound in my heart her conduct toward me had made Even when I saw her dash away from mo in an au tomobile pained though I was that our Interview should have been cut short I still did not comprehend what a terrible blow it was that had befallen me It was the sight as I left the ferry of tho automobile dashing by with Louise tie woman I loved seated beside Hugli Crandall that gave new pcUnanrs to
