Tho two men looked nt each other
in astonishment, and Little KUa sat
bolt upright in bed.
"Daughter," Gloria finished Ryan's
exclnmation. "1 am tho daughter of
David Kerr. Now go."
Something in her bearing rn.ido

truth. Kelly, timid now and apolo

"Well, wc didn't know you was

"I guess we'll go see Noonan." was
Ryan's method of boating n retreat.
"Ho can't git away, an) way," Kt'lly
whispered to him.
Gloria breathed a sigh of relief as
they turned to go, but in an instant

brought tho men back to the center of

moments had passed since- all had
admitted that Llttlo 1211a dominated
tho situation. That fact she recog
nized as readily as did tho others.
Now sho determined to make u9o of
her power, Gloria herself had aroubed
the savagery of the woman by having
inflamed her against tho boss, not
knowing that the creaturo's rago was
diroctud against hor own ather.
Feverishly stimulated to an unac
customed mental ucuteness by the
thoughta of her wrongs as Gloria had
lain them bare, all the cruolty of the
woman's naturo asserted itself. Re
vecgo with her was swcetneBB long
drawn out. It was the dainty morsel
over which tho gourmet lingers. It
was tho tantalizing antics of tho cat
that gloats over the rnouso beneath
Its paw, and oven lots it run a little
way to arouse tho wild hope that it
may yot escape. Having decided upon
the ujtitnato dlsclosuro of Wright's
hiding place, Little niln was now bent
moat of all on making tho daughter of
the boss suffer to tho limit.
"What's the matter, Ella?" Ryan
"Let them go, I say. Plcaso let
them go," Gloria Implored.

Gloria tried to gather herself to
gether to moot this now attack, but
without much success. She felt so
weak from tho shock that sho was only
able to rlso from hor chair with ilM
culty. "You'ro out of your head. You'ro
mad. Keep still, I tell you." Tho
men still standing Irresolute, sho
turned upon them. "Why are you
standing there? Lcavo this room."
Llttlo Ella was enjoying horsclf
hugely. Gloria's ovory pleading tone
was music In hor ears. Her eyes
burned with excitement. Yet tho cruel
cat delayed to crush tho mouse. Its
quivering was too soul-satisfying.
Realizing that if sho admitted Gloria
was the daughter of David Kerr tho
men would forego tholr pursuit of
Wright, Llttlo Ella know her best
course was to deny the relationship,
"Don't )ou go, Turkey," sho yelled.
"I'll tell you tho truth." Sho turned
to Gloria. "I wlsht the boss had a
daughter, did 17 It's a He, Turkey.
She's not Dave Kerr's girl. Ho'd laugh
to see a daughter o' his In such a
hell-hole. I'd watch her to see that
sho paid tho price," sho glanced at
Glorln malevolently, "If If he had a
daughter. An' yer pertectln' tho man
you love!" sho mocked. "We'll seo
how tho boss daughter loves."
Hor laughter was terrible. The men
could not think her the samo woman
they know. Glorln started In alarm.
Sho folt the woman was mad, and did
not know what she might do.
"What are you going to do?" sho
Now Ella was sneering at her. Sho
knew how to chooso knife-blades for
words. In everything Bhe said was
tho cunning and the cruelty of a lost
woman. Gloria was suffering, sho
could see, but there was still another
chord which would vibrate to misery
Sinco time began Jealousy has been
a flaming sword in tho hands of an
unscrupulous antagonist who knows
how to use it. To make Gloria think
that she was defending a man untruo
to hor, wus something. To make her
belleo that she had been defeated by
the greater charm of Llttlo Ella her
hclf, was far more.
"Do )ou think I'd 'a' let )ou hid
that man If ho d loved you? Never.
You don' know why he come hero, but
I do. Ho come to seo me. He loves
She beat her breasts as she spoke
to emphasize her words and her eyes
sparkled with tho challenge she had
Jus.t hurled at tho daughter of tho
boss. Gradually, bit by bit, tho veneer
of civilization hid been chipped away.
Gloria no longer saw the gulf that sep
arated them. Sho knew only that by
cozening words this other woman was
tr)lng to make her think sho had been
robbed of hor own. Her weakness
left hor. Now when sho summoned all
her strength, she joyed to find it did
not fail. Ab Llttlo Ella proclaimed
that tho man they were hiding had
come to seo her, Gloria sprang to the
sldo of tho bed, and cried with all the
indignation of an overwi ought soul:
"That's what you say, but down In
your heart you know It's tho tiuth.
It ain't tho llrst time ho's been here.
Oh, ho's told mo about you, tho boss'
daughter; but it's me ho loes."
Tho mon wero forgotten in this duel
so elemental that it could havo had
tho stone ago for Its setting. On ono
side, hate as bitter as tho grave; on
tho other, love and faith stronger than
"Every word jou utter Is n lie," Glo
ria blazed. "If you loved him you
wouldn't have called these cutthroats."
"Why don' you tell 'em yer the boss'
daughter now?" taunted tho other.
"Look hero, Ella," Ryan brolco In,
"we're tired o' standln' hero like focls.
Quit yer gassin' an' make good. '
"You'll git yours all right. She's
not David Kerr's daughter. Don you
let her hlulf you. 1 know whero slid

Gloria turned upon tho men.
"I'vo told you the truth, and I've

Gloria was standing at no great dis
tance from the bod when Llttlo Elln
began hor betrayal of Wright's hiding
place. An tho realized that In an
Instant tho secret would bo out, her
himself, never dreaming that his own
daughter would bo caught In It. When
the fight on tho Interurban Railway
had first started, at command of tho
boss. Jack Durken, a ward heeler, ap
parently had gono over to tho cuemy.
Tho man had found employment In
tho circulation department of tho
News, and soon afterward tho infor
mation reached Wright that ono of his
own employes was a former henchman
of tho notorious first ward leader,
Mlko Noonan. Durken was leud in
his denunciations of David Kerr and
his followers, and appoaied willing to
betray whatever ho knew of tho meth
ods of the gang.
Tho editor found htm a fountain of
information regarding tho shady poli
tics oMlohnont. In reality Duiktm told
only what David Korr ordered hlra to

to utter tho words which would reveal
whore tho newspaper man was con
cealed, Gloria was upon her. Sho
Heomed with ono bound to havo leapt
tho epaco that separated them.
"You Jezebel!" Eho raged, and struck
her fair upon tho mouth.
Ryan and Kolly did not stir. Tho
unexpected had happened, and they
Glorln's breath rushed through her
teeth with a horrid, hissing bound, hor
faco waB flushed, her hair touselcd,
and her waist in disarray. Yot sho
heeded nothing but tho wild impulso
to defend her own.
Little Elln, hor scant strength all
spent, gneped out that sho would tell
nothing. Gloria was beside herself
and tho promlso .meant nothing to her.
With a man's strength sho lifted tho
woman up, held her there an Instant,
and then hurled her back upon tho
bed. Her head foil over tho side, and
sho lay as ono dead.
Her rago waB still hot upon her as
sho turned to confront tho two men.
"As for you, get out."
Ryan mado ono last half-hearted
"Sny, the boss hntes that man. Are
you really Dnvo Kerr's daughter?"
"And you need to ask such a ques
tion!" she stormed. "Ask Mike Noo
nan If )ou will, but beware of David
Kerr! If ever you have cause to fear
him, you have It now. My anger is his
anger, and don't you dare defy the
daughter of David Kerr!"
She took n step forward menacing
ly, ns If sho had strength to inflict
the same chastisement they had seen
administered to the woman. They
did not utny to argue with her. Leav
ing Llttlo Ella to her fate, they mado
a liabty retreat.
No sooner were they out of the room
than Gloria put into execution what
she had designed when thoy departed
the first time. Rushing to tho door
sho closed it hastily and pushed tho
washstand in front of it, wedging It
under the knob This done, sho ran
back and dragged Wright from his
hiding place. Thero was no thought
of tho woman whoso head hung over
the side of the bed In such ghastly
Gloria lifted his head and dashed
water upon his fnco. Sho watched
him closely, and as sho saw that It
had no offect upon him, a sudden fear
seized her and hor cheeks wero
blanched. Willi trembling fingers sho
tore nt his shirt and folt for thr- bent
of his heart. Sho could feel Its faint
pulsation. He lived.
With a wild cry she flung herself
forward In a deep swoon upon the
body of the unconscious man.

Nature has long put the air first In
tho speed of living creatures. Next
to the birds came the laud animals,
Tho fishes trailed behind.
It has come to that already with
man's Bpeed records. Tuesday a
French aviator named Gulllaux droe
a flying machine a IS miles In an hour,
from Savlgny-sur-Dravo to Paris, and
thereby beat tho best record ever
made by an automobile in this coun
try or Europe by about six mllos. No
railroad train over camo anywhoro
near the subtnlned speed of the "bird
man," who averaged almost two miles
a minute for CO minutes.
Tho fabtest racing boats, It is need

view of tho conditions they havo to

So tho air becomes tho field for

final attack on tho machino would be
an expose of ring methods of handling
vagabond voters Imported for thj oc
casion. This programmo was being carried
out as originally planned, notwith
standing tho break with Gloria the
previous day, when Wright was In
duced to go through Noonan's "hotel."
Hero, deserted by Durken, who had
been his guide, ho had fallen into tho
hands of Turkey Ryan and Duck Kelly.
Although dazed by the unexpected
ness of tho attack, ho had neverthe
less managed to glvo a good account
of hlnisolf. The cramped attic quar
ters In which they had fought had
been In his favor. Tho two bruisers
had been surprised by what a scien
tific boxer could do In a rough-and-tumble
fight. To tho momentary Inde
cision resulting from his good defense
Wright owed his escape from tho room
iu which ho had been trapped.
A stinging blow having taken all tho
fight out of Kelly, ho lurched and fell
forward against tho door Just as the
newspaper man had managed to eludo
his assailants for tho instant and slip
out of the room. Forced to minister
to his companion, Turkey Ryan had
lost many valuable seconds before ho
could tnko up the pursuit. It was dur
ing this respite that Wright, groping
blindly for tho stair, had tripped and
fallen, to be found unconscious by
Gloria In front of Llttlo Ella's door.
No one over knew exactly what had
taken placo In Noonan's lodging house
that afternoon in early spring. Re
turning from tho mission with Dr
Norton, Mrs. Hayes wus surprised to
find the door of tho Windermere wom
an's room fastened from within. When
no response greeted her knock, sur-
j prlso gavo way to alarm, und sho
called upon Dr. Norton to aid her In
opening tho door. Gloria had not fast
ened it as securely ns she had thought,
and It required no great strength on
tho part of the physician to forco It
Gloria was removed to Mrs. Hayes'
home In a caniago as soon as sho
was revived. Llttlo Ella, in a semi
conscious, delirlouB state, was hurried
to "the city hospital In a pollco ambu
lance. An examination having aliown
that Wright had sustained no serious
injury, as soon as ho regained con
sciousness he wns taken to his own
DaId Korr was not allowed to seo
his daughter. Although tho oxact nn
tutc of tho shock to which sho had
been subjected was not known, f'neo
both Kelly and Ryan had disappeared,
yet tho ph)8lcians did not think it
best in her nenous condition for her
to seo oven her father. Tho following
day fcho remained In bed, speaking
necr a word, busy with her own
thoughts Tho next day, that of tho
election, bhe dressed, but did not
leavo hor room.
When It was seen that Gloria was
under tho cloud of a settled melan
choly, there was debate how best to
minister to her. Her very silence
mado tho problem moro perplexing
Sho uttered never a word by which
they might pluck out tho heart of the
m)stery. Strange as it may seem, she
did not oven ask about Joo Wright.
Sho did, however, read the morning
and afternoon pnpors carefully In
neither was there any reference to an
attack on the editor. As her mind
beat upon the bars of Its new Iron
cage, It suillced her to know that all
must bo well with him
Joe Wright's Injuries wero not of a
serious nature, yet it was thought best
that he remain nt homo for several
days. l)y means of tho telephone and
through tho men who cumo to the
