SIAOI'SIS Of I'RfiVlOUS CKAPTEKS.
Howard Jeffries marries waitress
wh'ie at college and Is disinherited cy
-ich father. Stepmother visits apart
ments of her old flame, Robert Under
wood, to. try to prevent him ending his
life when pressed by creditors. Howard,
visiting: Underwood, a former collesp
mate. seeking a loan, is asleep in the
apartments during the interview ana
as stepmother leaves. Underwood shoots
himself. Howard awakens and is ar
rested and. by police third degree meth
ods, is made to confess to ie crime.
Hs wife seeks aid of his family. Goes
to see husband at prison. He tells her
he is not guilty.
(Continued From Yesterday.)
"Is it possible," he exclaimed, "is it
possible that Underwood shot him
self? I never dreamed of doubting
Howard's confession!" More cordially
he went on: "Brewster, if this is
true, I owe you a debt of gratitude
you've done splendid work I I'm
afraid I've been just a trifle obstinate."
"Just a trifle," said the judge dryly.
Sergeant Maloney took his hat.
"Hurry up!" said the captain, "you
can telephone from the corner drug
store." ' -
"All right, cap."
Dr. Bernstein also rose to depart.
"I must go, Mr. Brewster; I have
an appointment at the hospital."
The judge grasped his hand warmlyf
"Thank you, doctor!" he exclaimed;
"I don't know what I should have
done without you."
"Thank you, sir!" chirced in the
banker; "I am greatly indebted to
"Don't mention it," replied the j
psychologist almost ironically.
He went out and the banker im
patiently took out his watch.
"It's getting late!" he exclaimed;
"where is this girL I have no faith
in hen promises!"
As he spoke the library door opened
and Annie appeared.
As Ainie entered the room and
caught sight of Mr. Jeffries, she in
stinctively drew back. Just at that
moment the banker was, perhaps, the
one man in the world whom she was
most anxious to avoid. Capt Clinton
no longer had 'any terror for her. Now

found and the precious "suicide let
ter" was as good as in their possession
there was nothing more to fear. It
was only a question of time when
Howard would be set free. But
it was not in this girl's nature
to be concerned only with her
self. If she possessed a single wom
anly virture, it was supreme unselfish
ness. There was some one beside her
self tos take into consideration a
poor, vacillating, weak, miserable
woman who wished to do what was
right and had agreed to do so, but
who, in the privacy of her own apart
ments, had gone down on her knees
and begged Annie to protect her from
the consequences of her own folly.
Her husband must not know. Annie
had promised that if there was any
way possible the knowledge of that
clandestine midnight visit to Under
wood's rooms should be kept from
him. Yet there stood the banker!
She was afraid that if they began
questioning her in his presence she
mightbe feetrayed into -saying some
thing that would instantly arouse his
Judge Brewster went quickly for
ward as she came in and led her to a
chair. Capt Clinton and Mr. Jeffries
eyed her in stolid silence. Looking
around in a nervous kind of way, An
nie""said quietly to the judge:
"May I speak to you alone, judge?"
"Certainly," replied the lawyer.
He was about to draw her aside
when Capt Clinton interfered.
"One moment!" he said gruffly; ,'if
this is all open and above board, as
you say it is, judge I'd. like to ask
the young lady a few questions.
"Certainly, by all means," said the
The captain turned and confronted
Annie. Addressing her in his cus
tomary aggressive manner, he said:
"You promised Judge Brewster that
you'd produce the woman who called
at Underwood's apartment the night
of the shooting?" Annie made no
reply, but looked at the lawyer. The
captain grinned as he added: "The
witness wants instructions, judge."
"You ,can be perfectly frank, Mrs.
Jeffries," said the lawyer reassuringly.
"We have no desire to conceal any
thing from Capt Clinton."

"Did she promise to come?" growled
"Well, where is she?" he demanded.
"She hasn't come yet," she replied,
"but she will, I'm sure I know she
"How did you come to find her?"
demanded the captain suspiciously.
Annie hesitated a moment and
glanced at Mr. Jeffries. Then she
said hesitatingly: .
"That I I cannot say now."
Capt. Clinton's massive bulldog jaw
closed with an ominous click.
"Decline to answer, eh? What's her
She remained silent.
"What's her name?" he repeated
"I cannot tell you," she said firmly.
"Do you know it?" he bellowed.
"Yes," she answered quietly.
"Know it, but can't say, eh? Hum!"
He folded his arms and glared at
her. Mr. Jeffries now interfered. Ad
dressing Annie angrily, he said:
"But you must speak! Do you real
ize that my son's life is at stake?"
"Yes, I do," she replied quickly.
"I'm glad to see that you are begin
ning to realize it, too. But I can't
tell you yet "
The judge turned to the police cap
"I may tell you, captain, that even
I myself have not succeeded in learn
ing the name of this mysterious per
sonage." Addressing Annie, he said:
"I think you had better tell us. I see
no advantage in concealing it any fur
ther.'" Annie shook her head.
"Not yet," she murmured; "she will
tell you herself wfcen she comes."
"Hh! I thought as much!" exclaimed
the banker increduously.
The captain rose and drew himself
up to his full height, a favorite trick
of his, when about to assert his au
thority. "Well, when she does come!" he
exclaimed, "I think you may as well
understand she will be taken to head
quarters and held as a witness."
"You'll arrest her!" cried the law
yer. "That's what I. said, judge. She's a
material witness the most important
one the State has. I don't intend that
she shall get away "
."Arrest her! Oh, judge, don't let
him do that!" exclaimed Annie in dis
may. Judge Brewster grew red in the
face. Wrathfully he said:

The feeding of infants is a very seri

Food must be used that will easily di

It is important to know that a food
can be obtained that is always safe;
that is Grape-Nuts.

Grape-Nuts food is not made solely !
for a baby food by any means, but is

or chemicals whatsoever, but simply by
the action of heat, moisture, and time,
which permits the diastase to grow, and
change the starch into dextrin, a por

to the system ready for immediate as

the fact that it is easily digested, Is
