New York. Tony Zacnro, pistol
tnan, gangster and Btlck-up man, cun
ning as a weasel at many games of
chanoe, paid the death penalty the
other night for "double crosblng" the
gang. He was shot to death In the
Degll, QlUBeppe Jacko's dingy little
coffee house at 336 East 109th street,

Tony up In his double-cross, was like

The wily Tony suggested arbitration
and then urged that a pack of cards
should serve as referee. The cards
were cut with the Idea that the low
card drew the bulk of the pelf. Tony
cut a four of hearts, which was low.
The dlvUlon was made.
Later those of the gang Tho had

"skinning the boobs." Tony denied
this and protested his Innocence But

from the Degll for a few days. The
other night he ventured back. As he
came through the swinging doors and
blinked his eyes In the vile atmos
phere he noticed three men get up
from a table and go out through a
side door. He approached that table
and saw, lying face up on It, the four
of hearts. A glass of chlantl had
'been tipped over and the card was i
smeared with crimson. Tonv turned
as white as he could under his olive

ANGELA DECIDES TO
CHANGE HER MIND
By MOLLY McMASTER.
"No Philip," Angella's lips were set
firmly, "I simply will not make up
my mind Just now to marry you. My
literary path Is beginning to unwind
before me and I do not want It to got
all tangled" up with matrimonial du
ties." "You have told mo you love mo, An
gela," Philip Dorian said gravely;
"your decision hardly proves It."
Angela flushed. "I do not see why
you should be so unreasonable," she
said with Borne heat. "I only want
a year or bo In order to get my name
firmly established and then"
'Yes, then," broke In Phillip with
more dignity than hurt, "when you

said half in appeal.
"Not when the Interests come be

upon her. "Nor do I want my wife to

work herself Into mild forms of hys

with her nose very high in tho air,
"we 'will take no risks with your
delicate nerves. Hero is your rlngl
I hope you will find a girl who has
neither a nerve nor an ounce of tem

perhaps she can make you happy!
I have decided to be happy myself!"
Angela turned nnd went swiftly out
of the room leaving a trail of deli
cate aroma which was all that was
left to Philip Dorian
He went out of the house and down
the steps nor did he know whetherbe
"Hello Phil! She has turned you
down, hasn't she?" It was the
charming Evelyn Marsh who had
blocked hte 2wlhher melodious
voice. "'Poor boy andPyoiT do Tove

and put her arm affectionately Into

sense of honesty. "No."
Evelyn Marsh smiled and a flush
rose and remained In her cheeks. She
drew a trifle nearer and unconsclous-
lv Phllln's footsteps were guided by
the pressure of her arm.
During the following weeks, nnd
caught on the rebound, Philip found
himself constantly with Evelyn.
And Angela from her little studio at
the top of the house looked down with
slowly breaking heart to "the captiv
ity of Philip.
Because she had a sudden feeling
of loneliness and because she had
caught sight of Philip and Evelyn
out there in the village street Angela
called up Tom Raynor on the tele
"Can I change my mind about go

Tom?" she asked when she beard
Tom's voice over the telephone. "I
do not deserve it but may I? You
are a dear. Yes, pink that Is sweet
of you. Daddy will drive us over in
the car if you like. All right, by-by."
Angela rejoiced that her courage
had permitted her to attend a dance
at which she was suro to meet Philip
and Evelyn Marsh.
She looked unusually beautiful in
her delicate pink gown and with no
ornament in her hair save one of the
pink rosebuds that Tom had sent her.
When Philip saw her hlB heart gave
a great bound. "May I have a danco
for old times Bake?" he asked try
ing to hide his Jealousy at sight of
Tom Raynor's roses.
"Two If you like, Philip," she made
answer In a voice sweet and without
the strain of emotion
When their first danco came Philip
approached Angela with a slightly
unsteady step. He put his arm firmly
about her and when she was once
more within the circle of his arm he
drew a great breath of relief and con

AFFINITY PAIR ARE

in an Illinois Town.
Carrolton, 111. Handcuffed together,
William Burley, a merchant, and Mrs.

The line or march of tho strange pa

years old, tho woman ?7.
The captured elopers were chained
to Slieriff Morrow, who had run them
down after a chase through two states.
Like captives chained to a Roman
chariot, the pair marched through a
double file of men and women, their
humiliation the greater because they
were acquainted personally with all of
the onlookers. The chase had been on
ten days. Burley, a bachelor, had
been a close friend of Eyans, whose
homo he frequently visited. Evans
did not suspect his friend.
Several weeks ago Evans sold a
house In Carrolton. He received

days later Mrs. Evans and Burley dis

his money he found It also was gone.
Sheriff Morrow learned that Mrs.
Evans and Burley had been seen to
gether at Grafton, 111., and had cross
ed the river there in a skiff and landed
l the Missouri shore. He learned
also that Mrs. Evans' trunk had been
sent to Jersey vllle and went from
there to Lynn, Mo., opposite Grafton.
He took with him a warrant charging
Burley with grand larceny. Evans
had said that he was most anxious to
recover his missing money.
Morrow found the couple In Lynn.
He obtained requisition papers, then
arrested the pair as they were return

they hugged and kissed each other.
Mrs Evans was then released. Bur
