2,000 feet. It was at the Los Angele3
(Cal.) meet last January that he won
for heavier than air machines the alti

else has ever gone so high either be

THe Argus Daily Short Story
The Strange Case of a New Love By Cuthbert Baker.
- Copyrighted. -1910. by Associated Literary Press. 1
The married life between Clarence
Hooper and Edua Worth was . very
happy. When they. were united Clar
ence was twenty-one and Edna nine
teen. Ten years later the husband
was obliged ' to make a business trip
to Russia. His' wife being In delicate
bealthat the time. It was not deemed
best that she should accompany him.
From Russia Clarence wrote often to
his wife, at times mentioning in glow
ing terms a certain .prima donna, Velt-'
volsky, a Russian Pole. He was not
aware that there was anything said
In these letters to lead his wife to be
lieve that his feeling for the singer
was anything, more than friendship.
She did not write him that she was
Jealous of his new found friend. In
deed, she never mentioned the singer
In sny" of her letters. When bis and
the singer's pafhs diverged he ceased
to mention her In' his letters." "'? ;'
One day he received a cablegram
from his wife's' bosom friend, Sarah
Ingalls, that Mrs. Hooper had been
caught In one of those terrible railroad
accidents which kill and malm so many
people and had been crushed to death.
He had seen an account of the acci
dent the day before cabled to an Eng
lish paper, but did not dream of bis
wife' having been on the train.
A death of one very dear to us in
the events of -which we 4o,not par
ticipate personally Is very different
from one where we are present Clar
ence Hooper could not realize that his
wife was dead. It was only when he
returned to his desolate home that his
bereavement' appeared to him as a
reality, and then it rushed upon him
with Its full force. No children had
come to them to impart life or cheer
fulness to the companionless : man
Nevertheless he remained In the home
where he had been so happy, morbidly
dwelling upon his loss. The lady from
whom he had received the cablegram
announcing bis wife's death bad gone
abroad, crossing him on the ocean.
She had. however, left a letter for him
giving . all . she knew of the circum
stances attending his wife's death. It
Was not much, since no one living had
seen her killed and the body was un
recognizable, but stated that she had
burled the. remains in b!3 lot at the
cemetery. He j would, find .the grave
near the center of the lot -
Hooper's first act after his return
was to visit bis wife's grav and shed
bitter tears there. The remainder of
his life seemed a dreary waste before
him. He had had bis one love. It bad
passed from him, and he would never
have another. 'A few days after this
he opened his wife's wilL.ne was sur
prised to notice a codicil added during
bis absence abroad leaving the in
come of certain property te Sarah In
galls. who had been his informant as
to the testator's death. The reason
Hooper was surprised at this be
quest was because Sarah Ingalls was
wealthy. Moreover, this legacy halved
bis -own income from his wife's' prop
erty. . '

It was winter when a
and as soon as spring
went to the cemetery for
of putting plants about

discover - that the adornment be bad

Lieut Thomas E. Selfrldge,
U. S. A, who was killed In the fall of
the Wright aeroplane at Fort Myer
September 17, 1908. The memorial Is
a monolith of granite of the same
shape and proportions as the Washing
ton monument The whole monument
Is 40 feet high and Is the largest In
Arlington. . It stands Just within the
ed in upon Litu. The events of his
married life passed before him in Te-view-as
they, are said to pass in
stantaneously before one who is
drowning. He bad known bis wife
since they were children, and this
sweep of memory went so far back
as their first love, and he wondered
if any one then had been his rival.
Next be considered those she had
known when they were young men
and women. From there be passed
to,' those- whov might have come be
tween them since they bad been mar
ried.;? Among' all these' he could not
remember a single person who could
have filled the place he had for years
considered he alone could C1L
Hooper was stirred by deep emotion.
His wife had been an orphan with no
brothers or sisters indeed, no relatives
In whom she had taken an Interest or
who had taken any Interest in her.
Sarah Ingalls had been the only being
except himself that she had loved and
by whom she had been loved. Yet here
was some one who had forestalled him
In caring for her grave. Was th un
known person man or woman? If a
man, hud he loved her before or after
her marriage? Had that love been re
turned? This last thought maddened
He turned away with a groan ex
pressive partly of grief, partly of anger.-
Why had Edna never spoken of
this person? A woman she would cer
tulnly have mentioned, a man she
might have " mentioned, a lover she
would not likely hare mentioned, and
a lover whose love she returned sho
Would never have made known.
Such was the reasoning by which
Clarence Hooper persuaded himself
that bis deed wife bud loved some man
and. loving that man. she could never
have loved her husband. Doubtless
some obstacle bad intervened between
them to prevent a marriage, or. what
was worse, she had met the unknown
after she bad become a wife. Hooper
Inflicted upon himself a succession of
such torturing hypotheses and when
they had been ail applied began again
and went through the process anew.
One day Hooper saw in a paper that
.Veltvolsky was coming to America to
vslng io opera. , The thought that be
might meet, her again was pleasant to
hljn. When she arrived be went to
the metropolis where she was singing
and called upon- her. He told her of
his bereavement, and she sympathized
With him. With kindly tact she di
verted his mind. When she had time
to . spare from study and rehearsals
they drove out together. Hooper was
a . , frequent atteudant at the opera
house where Veltvolsky sang, and
evenings when she didn't sing be fre
quented ber apartments. He confided
to' her his discovery that some oue
who bad loved his wife was caring for
her grave. Tiie prima donna deprecat
ed bis fears-that his wife had had a
lover,, explaining the episode by the
supposition that the unknown friend
was some poor creature whom the
dead had befriended. This tempora
rily at least relieved his mind.
. Hooper was seen so much at the
opera, applauded ' so enthusiastically,
drove so often with Veltvolsky and
spent so much time In her apartnenta
that .tb littls coterie of singers at last
began o connect ner name wilb his la
a more tender connection than friend
ship.. "Then one day he saw a notice
In a newspaper that the prima donna
was to marry an American gentleman
whom she had met in Russia shortly
before her visit to the United States.
" Hooper was naturally very angry at
the publication of this bit of informa
tion. which bad not been authorized.
He went to the office of the paper containing-it
and complained. He was
shawn the manuscript of the Item.
which bad come In from an unknowii
person. He did not recognize the
name signed to it as belonging to any
one be knew. Nevertheless there
was something about the handwriting,
which was evidently a woman's, that
was familiar to him. It looked like an
unsuccessful attempt at disguise. He
could not divest himself of the feel
Ing that be had known the writer or
had at least seen ber handwriting.
When the opera season came to a
close Hooper went to his borne. The
first thing he did after his return was
to visit his -wife's grave. He did so
with mingled emotions, among which
was a desire to see- If there was any
further evidence of the unknown friend
He found the grave strewn with
fresh cut flowers. A cry escaped him.
Had the crave been desecrated be
would have been enraged. This token
of an unknown affection filled him
The myBtery, with its distressing at
tendant conditions, began to wear so
upon the widower that be feared they
might unbalance bis brain. Could he
have found a clew to work on his In
vestigations would bare been a relief.
As it was he could only brood.
One day he .formed a resolution to
bury It all in a new Interest Mn
Veltsvolsky had shown great partial
ity to him. but that she would marry
him he did not know. She bad gone
to the country, and there he followed
her. He told her that through her, and
her alone, he could secure comfort
Would she receive a love that bad
withered, but which she could warm
Into a new life? " -
Then she confessed that she had
loved him during their meeting In Rus
sia and bad loved him ever since.
"But knowing that you had a wife,"
she added, "whom you loved I gave
no 6lgn. I only feared that you might
be drawn from her to me. You were
unconscious of your danger."
Then Hooper remembered the men
tion he had made In bis letters to his
wife of his new found friend and won
dered If she had been Jealous.
They were, engaged. Veltsvolsky
soon after passed through the place
where Hooper lived, and he had per
suaded her to stop over for a day
that he mlgut, show her the home la
which It was expected she would In
future live. After Inspecting it she
expressed a desire to visit his dead
wife's grave. When be asked ber why
she could not tell him. 1
It was a bright morning in early
summer when they drove to the ceme
tery. As they walked along one of
the avenues leading to the lot Hoop
er's quick eye discerned a figure trim
ming a rosebush that bung over the
grave of his wife. His heart throbbed
with a sudden relief when he saw It
was a woman. They were shout en
tering the gate when the figure turned
Hooper staggered and caught at the
lie saw his wife In the flesh.
"Clarence.- she said. "1 lie in that
grave. By your letters I knew that
your heart had been given to another.
I took advantage of the disaster that
occurred' at the time to die to yon.
Sarah Ingalls helped -me. and I went
to Europe with her before you re
turned. I did this to give you every
opportunity to win your new love, she
whom 1 see with you. I have devoted
myself to bringing you together. To
suggest to you the fact that you loved
I wrote the item that prematurely an
nounced your engagement I have
known of your every movement and
have calmly awaited this result Go
and make your application for divorce,
and I will aid you to get it"
Six months from that time Hooper
bad divorced his wife and married his
new love. -
