"AFTER SHE'S MARRIED "
Synopsis. Lonely nnd nlmost
friendless. Tonnlbel Devon, HvinK
on a canal boat with a brutal fa
ther and n worn-out, discouraged
mother, wanders Into a Salvation
nnny hnll at Ithaca, N. Y. There
she meetB a youns Salvation army
cnptnln, Philip MacCauley. She Is
almost afraid to enter, but Philip
assures her everyone Is welcome
and she hears from him, for the
first time In her life, about God.
She returns home and tells her
mother about her visit.
The Master of the Dirty Mary.
A week before this story opens,
Olah Devon hud steamed the length
of the hike, anchoring his boat as near
Ithncn as be dared. Even to bis wife,
Edith, ho bad not confided why he bud
brought her to a town where yawning
prison doors gaped for her every pass
"I won't go, Klah," Mrs. Devon bud
cried when her husband had made the
statement that he Intended to visit
Ithnca. "You couldn't get me near
that place with u rope around my
Hut the very fnct thnt she now sat
on n small bench against the boat rail,
gazing moodily nt the water, proved
that Uriah Devon had contrived to
hnve his way.
Occasionally Mrs. Devon lifted her
bend to listen and turned her eyes to
the west where a narrow path zig
zagged Its length up the hill to the
boulevard. Into her tortured soul
bail come a belief since the night be
fore, that Tony's "Gloriest God,"
would send her man home.
Suddenly the sound of heavy foot
steps In the forest path brought her
sharply around. At last he was com
ing, this man she loved, perhaps
drunk, perhaps to beat her; but nev
ertheless he wns coming, nnd that was
all she cared about.
Uriah Devon slowly walked up the
gangplank In silence.
"Where you been?" the woman
forced herself to say. But Instead of
replvlng, he demanded:
"I dunno," was the answer. "A min
ute ago she was over there not ten of
your legs' Jumps from here. . . .
Where you been nil this week?"
He'd been on n terrible spree, she
decided. He looked as If he bad been
drunk for days. That he bad some
thing unusual on his mind, she knew,
and she know, too, it was about Ton
nlbel, for hadn't he nMsed for the kid
the moment he'd returned?
"It's about time wo was doing
things, Kile," be said, turning grimly.
"I've waited as long as I dared. Ilege
says 'Paul I'endlehnvon hasn't an Inch
leeway before he's In his collln.' "
Mrs. Devon's face grew deathly
"What do you mean, honey?" she
"We live like rats In n bole," took
up the man, after a pause, "while If
Tony was made to do her part, we'd
be on easy street. That's what I mean.
We've got to hnve money nnd lots of
It. Heggle's willing to marry the kid
If you mind your business afterward.
Ills mnrryln' her ain't snyln' he'll stick,
to her. But we got to hnve boodle,
nnd we can't get It only through her."
"He shan't hnve 'or." the woman
said, with hard tones and flashing
eyes. "How many times 've I got to
say It over to you? If that's the why
you've come to Ithaca, you might ns
well turn the old scow north ami go
back again. He's n bum," she went
on. "A dude and a fool and every-
1 thing else thnt's bad. He's a thief,
I Devon laughed.
1 "So am I, Kde," said be. "So 're you'
for that matter. If Iteggle knew thnt
1 Tony wns Paul Pentllebaven's kid. we
! wouldn't get one d n cent of her
money. He snitches from the Pontile-
havens nnd his mother because he
don't get cash enough other ways. A
feller's got to have spendln' money."
! "Pretty small plckln's," sneered
, Kdlth Devon. "Stealln" from folks nl
i most In the grave ain't my style. Iteg
i gle's some second-story man, that
young duffer Is."
"You sneaked Paul's kid," taunted
I Devon. "He wouldn't be nlmost In
his grave now If you'd kept your
i hands olT'n Tony,"
I The woman turned on him savagely,
paying no hoed to his words.
"Get your blasted Iteggle to steal
enough for us all from the Pcndlehn
vens," she said, "(iod knows they've
got It and to spare. It's better'n
hnndln' Tony over to Mm. Ho lives at
Pentllebaven's, don't be?"
"He won't do It," cut In Devon.
"Heggle ain't got the nerve to burn his
fingers too deep. Puul Pendelhnven'd
Bnd him up for that, If he caught
him. My plan Is to get Tony married

"I hear what you say," she mut

promise not to let that pup hurt Tony

"Notliln' doln'," rasped the man.
"Tony's almost a woman, and shy's

Devon studied her fnce, his own dis
torted with rage.
"You'll do no such n thing, mntl
woman," be returned, running his
tongue over his dry, cracked lips. "If
j ou get me in a temper you'd better
look out. Iteggle knows Tonnlbel's
got rich folks, but be don't know who
they are. You spill the beans, by 0 d,
and the lake for yours."
The woman's gaze sought the sheet
of blue Witter.
"She'll grow n beord a mile long be
fore 1 tell 'er," she said Dually, bring
ing her eyes back to his face. "Tell
'er yourself, and see how you like It I"
There was a ring of revolt In her
tones that brought nn expression of
surprise to the man's face, leaving It
angrily, frownlngly red. Hut the
sound of a girl's voice on the hill
brought him suddenly to his feet.
"There she Is, by G d," be cried
abruptly. "Now If you want tiny more
lovln's from me inore'n that, If you
want to stay where I live, you got to
do my will."
"Uriah, honey, darlln'," cried Kdlth,
"don't suy that. I've always stuck by

Above them a giant pine tree lifted
Its bead far above Its fellows. Among
Its branches the man and woman could
plainly see the upper half of u girl's

slender arms was the small guinea

Tony, herself, little knew why In
times of strife she sought refuge
among these forest giants ami cttme
always to happiness. They were ani
mated beings In Iter mean little world
and because she bad showered Idola
trous love on them they, from their
primeval grandeur, sent an answering
spark of life to Iter starved little soul.
The sight of Tony further enraged
Uriah. Do waved her In.
"Now tell her outright, and get It
over, Kile," he said, sitting down again.
Penciling the canal boat, Tony stood
looking at her parents.
"Set down," growled Devon.
Shifting the pig n little, site dropped
down on the deck. She always dread
ed these talks with her father ami
mother. It usually meant they must
move on, or perhaps thnt a thrash
ing was coming her way. Prom under
her long lashes she glimpsed tirst De
von with bis frowning brow, then at
length let her gaze settle on the wom

hellish," she ventured presently In a
low tone. "Have I, Kdlo?"
"Nope, not this time, Tony," thrust
In Devon. "Hut we've got to tell you
something. You're gettln' to be n wom

thing for your mother and me,"
"I'm always wnntln to do something
nice for you, Kdle, darling." hhe suid,
looking nt her momer. "Ynr it oat

The woman began to cry softly.
"Co on, Kdle," said Uriah. "Why
In h I are you blubberln' over a
thing jou can't help?"
"Put I can help It." cried Edith.
"Ami whnt's mole I wIP. Hun awny
baby, mid I'll have It out with your
pop while you're gone."
Devon reached forward and 'uld a
strong detaining band on the girl's
"It's this," he got out between his
teeth. "You got to get married. You
been llvln' on me long enough."
The girl stared nt him blankly.
"(let married," she repeated dully.
"Whi.M marry u brat like me? I'm I
nothln' but n kid yet, and I'm goln' to
stay right here with my mother. Seo7
I don't have to do I, mummy darlln'?"
"Yitir ma's word ain't law in this
boat," answered Uriah In nn ugly
tone. "Mine Is, though. Eire ahead,
Kdle. and tell the kid my will." I
Mrs. Devon coughed spasmodically '
and toyed with the fabric of her skirt. 1
A slender brown band went up and j
closed over Iter twitching lingers. j
"I wouldn't mnrry any of the mutts i
you know, daddy," the girl burst out
In desperation. "So get thiit notion
clean out of your mind."
Her face settled sullenly Into little ,
lines that pursed up tlte lovely young '
mouth, itiiil Uriah Devon moved his
feet nervously. Perhaps his task
wasn't going to be so easy nfter all.
"Kid," he said huskily, "if you don't
do what you're told, I'll make you. I

The girl eyed him curiously, making
a siilew Ise gesture with her bead. 1
"Who's the duffer you've chose out
for me?" she asked at length. "You
might as well tell me." 1
"My friend, Iteggle," said Devon, '
bending over and stnrlng nt her.
Tonnlbel's mouth widened until two
rows of teeth gleamed through the red ,
of her lips. She made a wry face. 1
"Nothln' like thnt for me eh. Kdle?"
Kilith Devon wns coming to u resolu- ,
tlon that meant trouble for herself and
for Tonnlbel. ,
"I ain't fought It nil out with your

"You'll stay right here, brnt," ho
gritted, "and pay heed to me." 1
"Uriah," screamed the woman, "If

Tony, baby, I I ain't "
With a roar the man sprang forward
and In his effort to reach bis wife
knocked the girl Hat on the deck.
When Tonnlbel rolled over nnd sat up,
her mother was stretched along the
boat rail, and Devon was standing '
over her. She lay so dreadfully still 1
and limp that the girl scrambled to
It wasn't the same Tony who had
come fearfully to them but a short
period before with the little pig In her
nrms; nor the same girl who had
swung In the treetops making piny
fellows of the squirrels and answering
the shrill calls of the forest birds. She
seemed suddenly to have grown taller,
and as she Hung herself on Devon, the
very strength of her little body sent
lilm sprawling ngalnst the side of the
cabin. "Now you killed her, d n
you," she screamed. "If you kick 'er

of her mother, her threat broken In

Growling In rage, Devon turned on
"Mebbe I have killed 'or," said he.
"If so, I'll make a good Job of It and
finish you too."
The girl rose before him, her eyes
blazing Into bis, her little lists
"Polks that murder other people.
