CHAPTER XIII Jean Dunn sat down on the bettch and looked doubtfully at her employer. But of course! He was Sandy’s lawyer; naturally, since Sandy wanted to clear up this absurd misunderstanding, Mr. Mon tague had come along, just to make sure everything went right. She rather wished that he hadn’t come, though, It made it all seem a little too—she frowned—too busi ness-like, somehow, Before she saw Mr. Montague, coming down here with Sandy had seemed rather like a lark. Now, for some reason, that feeling had vanished. This emotion was not evident, however, when she replied to Mr. Montague's question. "Yes,” Jean said, "Isn’t It lucky that Sandy happened to be with me that day?” Mr. Montague beamed at her. "It’s all pretty absurd, of course,” ha said. ‘But sometimes these ab surd mistakes can cause a great deal of trdbble before they are l straightened out . . Ah, there’s Inspector Thomas. Shall we go In?” He got up and walked through a swinging gate in the waist-high railing which cut the room In half. Sandy helped Jean to her feet, drew her hand through his arm, and followed; behind them came the other man who had been sit ting with Mr. Montague when they came in. Jean stole a look at him; he was a stubby, roughly-dressed person, and he hadn't taken the trouble to save himself that morn ing. His face was vaguely familiar. They passed half a dozen desks, where shirt-sleeved men were busy with letters and sheafs of paper, aqd went into a small office. There waa a battered roll-top desk over by a smudgy window, and back of it sat a tall, lantern-pawed man in a gray suit. He nodded to Mr. Montague as they came In, and ges tured toward chairs. •Well, Mr. Montague, what’s this all about?” he asked in a friendly tone. Mr. Montague sat down, laid his gray felt hat on his knees, and assumed an air of complete frank ness. "Just a little misunderstanding, Inspector,” he said. "I want to clear it up before it gets serious. This young man here — he mo tioned toward Sandy — "seems to bear a facial resemblance to a man who Is being sought for that Acme Box Company robbery last week. Since It Just happens that he was a good 15 miles away from the place when the robbery took place, I thought it would be wise to come in and tell you about it. Then he won’t be bothered about it any further.” •Hmm,” said Inspector Thomas. He looked at some papers, frowned, and said: “Do you mind if I have Sergeant Hagan in here while we talk? He’s more familiar with the details of the case than I am.” "Not at all,” said Mr. Montague. The inspector rang a buzzer, and when a clerk stuck his head in the Let’s Explore Your Mind By Albert Edward Wiggam, D. Sc.

'This holdup,” Montague went on, "as I understand it, took place Friday afternoon about a quarter past three, on Ontario road a fejv blocks from the Acme plant?” Tne two policemen nodded. Montague turned to Jean with a fatherly smile. “This Is Miss Jean Dunn, who works in my office,he said. "Miss Dunn, will you please tell these gentlemen what you did Friday afternoon?” Jean looked at the noncommittal faces of Thpmas and Hagan, felt a little wave of nervousness, swal lowed hard, and then spoke: "Someone came to see Mr. Mon tague a little after two that after noon,” she said, “and Mr. Montague told me that I could have the rest of the day off. So I started to go home, and downstairs In the lobby I mot Mr. Harkins. We got into his car and drove out to a place on the Grand river and rented a canoe. We paddled up the river for a while, and then drifted back. It was getting on toward dusk when we got back to the' boat house. Then we had dinner at a little res taurant there, and after that Mr. Harkins di'ove me horn. We got home about 8 o’clock, I guess, or a little later.” She did not realize that, of all possible witnesses, she was the most Impressive In a case of this kind. Dressed in her riding clothes —jodhpurs, silk shirt and boots, with a silk scarf about her hair — she stood out, in this dingy, police office, like an orchid In a barnyard. She was so obviously an intelligent and honorable young person that it was imposisble to doubt her story for a moment. The two policemen were visibly impressed. matlcally assert that "Personality is all due to nevlronment.” I hardly believe such a dogmatic position Is Justified. 2.

(Copyright John V. Dill* Co.) “This was last Friday?" asked Sergeant Hagan. She hesitated briefly, then nodded. “Yes,” she said. “Just to be on the safe side,” said Mr. Montague smootfily, “I’ve brought In Mr. Stout.” The nondescript man who had followed them Into the office looked up. Jean suddenly recognized him as the owner of the Orand river boat house, from whom they had rented their cartoe. “Have you seen these people be-» fore, Mr. Stout?” asked Mr. Mon tague. The boat man nodded. “Last Friday, about 3 o’clock or a little after, they came and rented a canoe,” he said. “They went uiJ* river In it, and didn’t get back un til half past six.” “And do you know where the Acme plant is?" continued the layer. The man nodded. “How far would you say your boat house is from that plant?” “Oh,” said Mr. Stout, “by road, I guess it must be 12 or 15 miles.” Mr. Montague looked at the two officers. “Is this satisfactory?" he asked. They glanced at each other. Ha gan was wearing a faint, dissatisfied scowl, but he said nothing. Inspec tor Thomas turned again to the lawyer. “I don’t see how it can be any thing else,” he said. Mr. Montague chuckled softly. “Then Mr. Harkins can go his way in peace?” he said. Hagan’s scowl became slightly more noticeable, and he grunted dourly. Inspector Thomas was less ruffled. “As far as this is concerned, yes,” he said. There was a faint menace in his tones that made Jean uncomfortable. Mr. Montague adopted a severe expression. “What do you mean by that?” he asked. The inspector smiled. “Nothing at all,” he said, getting up. “That was Just my way of put ting it. 'No. he’s as free as the birds ‘ in the 1 air. We shan’t be bothering him.” The confernce was at an end. Mr. Montague got up, thanked the officers for their courtesy, and shepherded his charges out of the building. No one spoke until they had reached the street. Then Mr. Stout, with a farewell bob of his head, climbed into a rickety flivver and drove away, while Mr. Mon tague signaled a taxi. “Well, Miss Dunn, you’ve done Mr. Harkins a service,” he said. “You ought to be able- to rest well to-night; you’ve done your good turn for to-day." Then he lifted his hat and was gone. Bandy led Jean to his road ster and they got in. She discov ered suddenly that she felt tired, and her head ached slightly, and she asked Sandy to sake her home. When she reached her apart ment, she removed her riding clothes, took a shower, put on a cool llnqp dress and lay down on the davenport in her little living room. Somewhere, in the back of her head, a. thought was bothering her; an uneasy feeling that some thing had been done wrong, some how. She frowned, and tried to bring it out, but it eluded her. And at last, as she lay there, Bhe dropped into an uneasy sleep, from which the ringing of her telephone awakened her. It was Bobby Wallace calling. “Well—at last I’ve been able to get hold of you,” he said in mock anger. “Where ve you been hid ing yourself these last few days?" “I haven't been hiding, Bobby. I’ve — been busy.” "So? It’s a year since I’ve seen you. Listen, honey, I've got lots to tell you — why not let me take you out to dinner to-night?” She was on the verge of refus ing, but a sudden impulse made her change her mind and consent; and so, an hour later, she sat opposite Bobby in a pleasant little chop suey restaurant and saw his boyish, en thusiastic face beaming at her from across a little table. Bobby was full of news and high spirits. He had had another talk with Mr. Montague, wfTo had, Jn the days since Bobby’s first confer ence with him, made a brief check up on the bonds which Bobby was offering him; and he had formally’ agreed to buy them, so that Bobby was to get them from Mr. Lewis that evening and make delivery the following morning. "Jean, it’s going tb mean 11,500 case for me," he said exultantly. Furless Coat Gets Parisian Approval m m m m m m % m m m m • • Cloth Garment Is Held Better Than One With Poor Felt Trimming By JEAN PATOU Written far MIA Berries* PARIS.—Although fur trimmings are used lavishly this fall, a woman need not worry just because her coat is furless. As a matter of fact, on a good many new models I have used furs merely to underline*a fea ture of cut and as a contrast to the fabric instead of as a sumptuous trimming note. And it certainly is more fashionable to wear a good coat without fur than one decorated with cheap pelts. The winter day coat silhouette is definitely stylized this season, stressing wide and rounded shoulders, an easy-fitting bustline, form-fitted hips and nearly always completed by a belt of the same fabric. The lower por tion of the garment hangs straight, but never excessively narrow, thus accentuating the importance given to the top of the sil houette. Flat Trimmings Are Outmoded Fur collars either hug the neck or favor the shawl cut in contrast to the flat trim mings of last winter. When used, the fur trimming is almost always repeated on the sleeve, sometimes formnig the lower half of or, in the more formal models, the entire, sleeve. Silver and sable-dyed fox and broadtail still retain their position as smart trim mings, but I have used almost as much gold en and black seal and ft fine quality of astra khan, often to achieve a novel effect easier to carry out in shirt-haired pelts. I think women will appreciate the return of the dressy afternoon coat, so practical be cause it can do double, duty for formal after PERSONAL HEALTH SERVICE , BY WILLIAM BRADY, M. D.

Nursing Is a bit overcrowd ed. Since 1900 the general popula tion Increased 62 per cent while the number of graduate trained nurses Increased 2,374 per cent. Is this prodigious superfluity of nurses dueto a great demand for their services? Don’t laugh, folks, thousands of nurses are suffering in dire want. - Well, then, how come so many women are inveigled Into this glori fied slavery? First we must charge off rather more than 60 per cent of It to the Innate nobility of womankind. Of course motherhood is the greatest career to which a woman can aspire. Glorifying Yourself Now that summer tan is just a memory, the early fall permanent wave season past apd gone, and the social season glamorously launched, it Is a good idea to go over the list of beauty ideas that not only ar«. new but correct and likely to be with us all winter. / First of all, we might as well agree that nail polish is brighter and, Judging by the hands seen across fashionable hotel tables, the smarter the woman the brighter her polish. As a matter of fact, odd shades are creeping into the manicure picture. Corals, rusts, wines apd even copper may not be here to say, but they are popular at the moment. One manufacturer of nail polish sug gests one color over another, showing pale gold over rust, sil ver over coral, pale pink over scarlet and the like. Lips are brighter, too, and, thank fortune, the trend is toward naturalness. Nowadays the best groomed women are picking lip sticks than enhance the tones of their own Ups. Perfume manufacturers undoubt edly have decided to take to heart the problems of women with limited Incomes. It is possible to get dimin utive flacons of your favorite, quite expensive perfume. Attractive fla cons of your favorite, quite expen sive perfume. Attractive flacons, too, which are lovely on a dressing table. Bobbed hair is not as short as fonperly, giving a girl a chance to wear the ends curled up for daytime and longer, or even done up, for evening. Coiffure orna ments are seen in profusion. You can wear anything from tiny jeweled flowers to sweeping feathers and tiaras in yeur evening hair-dress. "I can get a little car—X know of a little demonstrator roadster I can get for $500 cash — and put about $1,000 In the bank . . . And then, Jean honey, will-you marry me?” Re leaned across the table to take her hand. Jean smiled at him. “Bobby . . . why all the rush?” she asked lightly. “Well, doggone it,” he began; then he dropped his light, banter ing air and became Intensely seri ous. Heedless of the other diners, he leaned closer toward her and said softly, “Jean, I worship the air you breathe. I want to marry you and care for you and live for you and spend all the rest of my life trying to make you happy." His youthful earnestness, the whole-souled affection that lit his face — that face she had known since earliest childhood—brought a wave of tenderness into Jean's breast , .. . and she suddenly, to her utter amazement, found her self thinking: Dear Bobby! I'd marry you In a minute — If It weren’t .for Sandy 1 (X# Be Continued) but she has to be chosen for that. Nursing Is a fine alternative for the young woman who Is fit but not fated for motherhood. This does not imply that there Is any dearth of marriage material In the nursing business; on the contrary these wo men are practically the only class of women with education and train ing which prepares them for motherhood. Something sublime In a woman’s nature accounts for the fact, that she Is a nurse. mien put down another 10% of it against the romance and glamour which surrounds the hospital train ing of nurses. If this Incentive Is Infinitesimal In some Instances, no need to get Indignant about It, for it Is surely a considerable factor In many Instances, and perhaps for tunately so, for without the senti mental Influence nursing would be a forbidding career Indeed. Finally charge 30 or 35 per cent of It to the lure of the training school, which Is conducted by every large hospital The nurse training school offers special education, pro fessional or technical training, plus free maintenance for the student while training. No years of tuition, no board bill to pay, no expensive clothes to buy, no sorority skuldug gery to contend with, and a rosy prospect of a job when the school course Is finished. After the intelligent vigorous, healthy young woman enters upon training, she finds that the hours of work are long, the work largely sheer drudgery, and often her duties expose her to the gravest risk of contracting disease which may in capacitate her for life. For*exam ple, consider the terrible price all those young nurses In Los Angeles are paying, courageous and faith ful women who were stricken with Infantile paralysis while nursing victims of the disease—and never a move or a thought on the part of the wretched public to pension them. If they were policemen or soldiers disabled In line of duty they would be properly compensated. But who cares aboutt he fate of mere nurses? I should advise any young woman who contemplates the study of nurs ing to think twice. The hospital training courses are usually three years. Two years to train the nurse —then one year of her professional service free to the hospital. It Is a great racket for the hospital, but a sad exploitation of womanhood nevertheless.

Or a youth too young to shave call his father an old fogy. Young people today hate a habit of thinking that anyone born In or previous to 1900 lived In the dark ages before civili zation began. I’m not referring to the usual old bromide about youth and old age; everyone knows that a sixteen he thought his own parents ancient. That’s easy to understand. It is, rather, the misconception about the “slowness” of living when poor mother and dad were young, and the hangover of such sad days that now cramps their style, the idea of by-gone chaperones, dry par ties and no cars—incredible to to day’s children. The other day a friend went to a football game with her son and daughter. The boy chafed because he wanted to be with his crowd, but he endured the ignominy of escort ing a parent and sister. How Times Had Changed As they made their way out, the lady began to notice the empty flasks lying about. By the time they had reached the stadium gate she was shocked beyond belief. She and her husband had been football fans at the turn of the century, but not once in the old days could she recall seeing so much as a beer bot tle after a game. “If Bill had been with his crowd he’d have been drinking,” she thought. “He’s just at the age when he wants to be smart. Poor Billy. What chance does a boy have to day? Parents have no Influence against all this." She also interested herself in two or three places where Mary and her friends trften drove for a few rounds of dancing. “Just the school crowd, half of them neighbors,” she had complacently assured herself.
