Chancollor Thomas M. McConnell
dissolved the temporary injunction re

to govern the city of Chattanooga,
Tenn., from assuming control of mu

of the r.ew charter is upheld, and the
suit is dismissed with costs on the

the old government. Mayor T. C.
Thompson and the four commissioners
held a meeting, bonds were signed and
approved, and the old government has
passed into history.

three or four hundred people, the sus-,

And of those ten, at least eight of us
were friends, and the other two had
been vouched for by the Browns and'
Jimmy. It was a horrible mix-up. For
the necklace was gone-there couldn't,
be any doubt of that-and although,
as Dallas said, lt couldn't get out of
the house, still, there were plenty of
places to hide the thing.
The worst of our trouble really

It was almost three when the house
settled down-nobody nad any night

las, who gave them to Anne, who gave
them to the rest, we got some things
of Jimmy's-and I was still dressed.
The house was perfectly quiet, and.
after listening carefully, I went slow

dining room, and I got along without
any trouble. But the pantry, where
the stairs led down, was dark, and the

I caught my skirt in the door as I
went through, and I had to stop to
loosen it. And in that awful minute
I heard some one breathing Just be
side me. I had stooped to my gown,
and I turned my head without
straightening-I couldn't have raised
myself to an erect posture, for my
knees were giving way under me
and just at my feet lay the still glow
ing end of a match!
I had to swallow twice before I
could speak. Then I said sharply:
The man was so close lt ls a
wonder I had not walked Into him; his
voice was right at my ear.
"I am sorry I startled you," he said
quietly. "I was afraid to speak sud
denly, or move, for fear I would do -
what I have done."
It was Mr. Harbison.
"T-I thought you were-It ls very
late," I managed to say, with dry
lipes. "Do you rknow where tho elec

not known me before. "Why, no;

in judgment on me, at that instant
came two rather terrific thumps from
somewhere below, and inarticulate
words, shouted rather than spoken. It
was uncanny, of course, coming as lt
did through the register at our feet.
Mr. Harbison looked startled.
"Oh, by the way," I said as careless
ly as I could. "In the excitement, I
forgot to mention it There is a police
man asleep in the furnace room. I-I
suppose we will have to keep him
now," I finished as airily as possible.
"Oh, a policeman-in the cellar," he
repeated, staring at me, and he moved
toward the pantry door.
"You needn't go down," I said fever

sitting on the kitchen table, surround

said, as if the situation were quito

Here the prisoner in the furnace
room broke out afresh. It sounded
as though he had taken a lump of coal
and waa attacking the lock. Mr. Har
bison followed tho noise, and 1 could
hear him arguing, not gently.
"Another sound," he finished, "and
you won't get out of here at all, un
less you crawl up the furnace pipe!"
When he came back, Bella was rous
ing. She lifted her head with her
eyes shut and then opened them one
at a time, blinked, and eat up. She
didn't see him at first.
"You wretch!" she said ungrateful
ly, after she had yawned. "Do you
know what time it is? And that-"
Then she saw Mr. Harbison and sat
staring at him.
"This ls Mr. Harbison," I said to
her hastily. "He-he came with Anni'
and Dal and -he ls shut in, too.'"
By that time Bella had seen' how
handsome be was, and she took a
hair-pin out of her mouth, and arched
her eyebrows, whicn was always
Bella's best pose.
"I am Miss Knowles." she said
sweetly (of course, the court had
given her back her name), "and 1
stopped In tonight, thinking the house
was empty, to see about a-a butler.
Unfortunately, the house was quaran
tined Just at that time, and-here I
am. Surely there cannot be any harm
in helping me to get out?," (Pleading
tone.) "I have not been exposed to
any contagion, and in the exhausted
state of my health the confinement
would be positively dangerous."
She rolled her eyes at him, and I
could see she was making an Impres
sion. Of course she was free. She
had a perfect right to marry again,
but I will say this: Bella ls a lot bet

The upshot of it was that the gen-,
tleman who built bridges and looked
down on society from a lofty, lonely
pinnacle agreed to help one of the
most gleaming members of the afore
said society to outwit the law.
It took about 15 minutes to quiet
the policeman. Nobody ever knew
what Mr. Harbison did to him, but
for 24 hours he was quite tractable.
He changed after that, but that comes
later In the story. Anyhow, the Har
bison man went upstairs and came
down with a Bagdad curtain and-.a
cushion to match, and took them into
the furnace room, and came out and
locked the door behind him, and then
we were ready for Bella's escape.
But there were four special officers

ECZEMA BROKE OUT ON BABY
"When my baby was two months
old, she had eczema and rash very
badly. I noticed that her face and
body broke out very suddenly, thick,
and red as a coal of fire. I did not
know what to do. The doctor ordered
castile soap and powders, but they
did no good. She would scratch, as
lt itched, and she cried, and did not
sleep for more than a week. One
day I saw in the paper the advertise
ment of the Cutidura Soap and Cuti
cura Ointment, so I got them and
tried them at once. My baby's face
was as a cake of sores.
"When I first used the Cuticura
Soap and Cuticura Ointment, I could
see a difference. In color it was red

baby was in a terrible condition. I
used the Cuticura Remedies (Soap

in two weeks she was quite well. The
Cuticura Remedies healed her skin
perfectly, and her skin is now pretty
and flue through using them. I also
use the Cuticura Soap today, and will
continue to, for it makes a lovely
skin. Every mother should use the

for all sores, and the Cuticura Soap
