it was not at all about his arrest that
he was worrying."
"It wasn't." agreed Godfrey. "Thai's
what I meant."
The lights of Babylon gleamed out
ahead, and a few minutes later we
drew tip before the hotel. As we en

and went in to dinner. Then we started
toward the jail for a final talk with

she deserved them. She got me out of

telling me that she was tired of me.

Godfrey looked at him pityingly.

In his theory, after all."
"What Is his theory?"
"He thinks you're crazy."
Drysdale laughed a little, mirthless
"I'erhnps he's right," he said.
"You'll be sure of it in a few min
utes. It's inconceivable that any man
in his right mind should suspect a girl
like Miss Croydon of such a thing."
Drysdale turned to him with eyes
bright with emotion.
"See here. Jim." he said, "you've had
your fun; you've tormented me long
enough. Do you mean that Miss Croy
don didn't write the note?"
"I mean just that."
"Then who did?"
The word brought Drysdale to his

"Not a thing. She was waiting for

and struck himself a savage blow in

'Deserve it! Do you think she'll
ever forgive me?"
"I shouldn't if I were in her place."
Godfrey assured him. "I'd think my
self well rid of you. I shouldn't want
to marry an idiot."
lirysdale cursed dismally to himself.
"Still." Godfrey added, "there's no
accounting for the whims of women
there's no telling what they'll do. Mav-

automatic regularity through health

blood between the heart and th" brain.
When il ceases to operate, somebody
dies of apoplexy or a rn--.li of blood t

Danger of Using Alcoholic Mixtures or
Coal Tar Tablets.
The most dangerous thing that on
can do when affected with a cough or
cold is to use a medicine that contains
whisky or a tablet that is made of

all moral objection to filling up with
whisky or drugs because one has a
cold, the injurious physical effecf
should be sullieitnt to keep one from
using thiso strong medicines.
