yttti IIY HUSBAND'S LOVE Adele Garrison'" New Phase of REVELATIONS OF A WIFE Ilio Way Katie and Madge Found Jim Katherlne looked at me with a cur- loua startled tenseness when I an nounced my intention of going with Katie In search of Jim. I knew that xpostulatlonwas trembling upon her lips, out nerore ivatie sne saia noui lag save an eager assent to my query. "Of course I'll see to the dinner," he said. "But come in here a sec ond before you go." I followed her out of the kitchen, through the dressing room, and into the library, where she closed the door behind us. "Look here!" she said, taking me by the shoulders, "There's danger in going after Jim, isn't there?" "That depends," I returned truth fully. "It deepnds upon what Jim has succeeded in doing. But I don't believe " "But I do believe," Katherlne re turned firmly. "And I want you to let me go out there with Katie." It It doesn't matter much to anybody what becomes of me, but you have your little boy. Tou ought not to risk danger." "'! -'. ; Her words startled, me with their Implication of unhapplness. I knew that she had no near relatives but Jack, her husband did she mean that it would not matter much to him If anything happened to her? Had anything of which I did not know transpired in my absence to make her feel so morbid? I had not time to speculate upon ,the meaning of her words now, how. ever. Reaching up, I took her hands from my shoulders,' and held them firmly while I returned her steady gaze. ' Katie Prepares Herself "I cannot shelter myself with that plea," I said. "It was I who told Jim of that escaped criminal out there, so I, alone, am responsible for his going after him, and I must go to find Jim. Please don't make it hard for me, Katherlne." "I won't, old Don Quixote," she aid. "Run along before Mother Gra ham finds out you're going, or you'll be swallowed whole." "She'd probably Insist upon going too," I replied as I heeded Kather. ine's injunction and hurried back to the kitchen, finding Katie, cloaked and hooded, waiting impatientvly at the door. She held her arm closely, stif fly against her side, and glancing keenly at it, I saw that she was con cealing a long knife against iter dress, one of her kitchen implements which I knew was sharpened to razor edge. "Put that away, Katie," I said re straining a smile with difficulty. "We're going out to hunt Jim, not to kill people." "How you know we no need sooch tings?" Katie demanded truculently, is. hrrifin Skot Kwrtam JfcvtAHD in Continuation of Letter From Mrs. Jo seph Graves Hamilton to Mr. " Joseph Graves Hamilton. Just when I reached the point in my letter where I told you I opened the door into the hall, this morning, I was called to consult again with Dr. Samson. He wanted to give me some directions .about the baby's milk. No, dear, I did not go to the Chil dren's Home to get a baby for Les lie, for although you will hardly be lieve it, as I opened that door last night to go across the hall I found, lying in a softly lined basket, a beau tiful baby boy. - I gasped! And rushing back, car ried' the child into Jack's room. "Look here, boy," I said. "Look what I have found Just outside your door." Jack seemed utterly surprised And asked the usual stupid question, "Why, who put it there?" "I don't know, Jack. Probably some woman has heard about Leslie's Illness and how we were going to find a child for her and thought it would be a splendid place for her own baby. Poor woman! She probably could CHANGE OF LIFE LOSES TERRORS For Women Who Rely upon Lydia . Pinkham's Vege table Compound Greenville, Pa. "I took your medi cine through the Change of Life and it laid wonders for me. I was down in -bed when I started to take it and weighed 95 pounds.

I do all my house work for a family of seven now. I will be glad to answer any woman who writes me in regard to my case." Mrs. John Myers, 65 Union St, Greenville, Pa. Many letters similar to this have been Eublished testifying to the merit of ydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound. They are sincere expressions from women who describe as best they can theirfeelings before and after taking this well-known medicine. Many times they state in their letters their willingness to aoswer women who write them. It is an offer dictated by situde fend a desire ta belp others. 1 I... , fa: M y- Vav , 6 IBM but she laid the knife down obedient ly, nevertheless. "Vot you goin" do eef dot mans oop dere, start keel us?" "A Good Idea." "There's no chance. of that," I said with an assured air which I hoped would quiet her fears, but I did not tell her that concealed in my dress was the tiny pistol which Lillian gave me long ago. Katie acepted the Inevitable with a characteristic shrug of the shoulder. "Maybe so, maybe not," she said sullenly and then glanced uneasily through the window. "Sun most down," she observed, "und we no can tell how long eet take to find dot Jeem. Vou take dot flashlight? No?? "That's a very good idea, aKtle, I assented. "Have you one here?" "Two", she responded laconically. "Dot Jeem, he shoost have dem feexed, two, tree, days ago." "We'll take them both," I decided, glad to be relieved, of the necessity of going after my own in my room with the probability of meeting my mother-in-law on the way. "I get vun meenit," Katie said eagerly, and In less than the time she had named we were outdoors, walk ing toward the woodland whether Jim had followed the escaped boot legger. But for minutes that seemed hours, an hour that stretched interminably into a century, we found no trace of the Intrepid man who had gone out into danger with such brave simplic ity. It was long past twilight, almost pitch dark in fact, when hopelessly plodding back to the house by a dif ferent route than that which we had taken out, we heard a muffled attempt at a shout, and using our flashlight saw Jim, bound and gagged, leaning against a big tree.

I picked the baby out of the basket. It was evidently about six weeks old. Dressed In very nice, delicate, hand made clothes. Its mother must have been a fine needle-woman. It . opened it eyes and looked at us, for Jack was bending over my shoulder with his face close to the baby's face, " and I was looking at them both. I became almost hysterical, for at that moment each of them the man and the baby (witched up the left side of his mouth and wiggled his nose in a ridiculous manner. I had never noticed that Jack did that be fore, and when 4 saw it duplicated on the wee features of that baby it seemed something almost uncanny. Jack put out his hand and touched the baby's mouth; then picked up one of Its tiny hands, the fingers of which clasped around his like ten drils. "My dear," I said, "it is Providence nothing else." "Do you think she'll like him?" asked Jack. "He seems pretty nice, don't you think? But why in thunder should any woman leave a baby at our door?" he Inquired. It seemed to me, however, perfect ly simple, for of course the papers had beth full of Leslie's illness and how she was grieving for her baby. We sent at once for Dr. Samson, and he advised us immediately to get a woman who was trained in chil dren's nursing; in fact, he offered to go to the hospital and send one that he thought was at liberty. After this happened, of course, there was no sleep for either Jack or me. Jack hung over the basket in which we again placed the baby, for hours. He seemed to be afraid that it would fly away, and once he declared that he knew it was not breathing. If the child had been his own he could not have been more solicitous. He seemed to feel that In some way fate had solved all his troubles and that Ies1l would be as delighted as he the moment she saw the child. He had the right Intuition. Joe, for the moment the nurse which Dr. Famson cent us took the baby In to Leslie's room, upon her awakening, her face lightened up with a radiant smlie. "Bring him to me brin? him to me quickly." she said. "Where did jou )rt him?" We told her the entire truth, she Interrupts with little gurgles of nappins as she held the child to hr breast. "Oh. I can keep him Jack can't I keep htm?" she asked. "Of course you can. my dear. Tou could keep him If he were twins, if It made you happy. Tou cannot know how I have agonized over you all these weeks." "Have I been HI weeks. Jack?" she asked in surprise. "Tes. dear, but it Is all over now. Tate has brought you this baby and the baby has brought you back to me." . rrrJ' " ! DAILY W ASHIOW 8E8VICK ! "Slash Gathers" Means To Take Up Fullness Do you prefer to carry the fullness on the hip or near the yoke of your dress? Position matters little since slash gathers" have come into fashion as the means for taking up fullness and placing It where it gives becoming and fashionable lines. These dresses show how the slash gathers are used. Great care should be taken in making slash gathers, for after the first wash or at the least tit of strain, they will sag or pull out if they are not correctly finished.

Capes and Shawls Capes and shawls are very popular for evening wear. Besides the color ful embroidered Spanish shawls are those of lace or brocaded fabric, or of plain colors with long fringes.

"It'll be a short one," Mr. Bear called out grimly. He was in anything but a pleasant mood. Cuffy had made a joke about him. And then that young gentleman hadn't come when he was called. "Now, Ephraim!" cried Mrs. Bear anxiously. "Remember we've come to the lake to have a good timet Cuffy was only Joking. He didn't mean any harm." Mr. Bear's only answer was a.enort. He continued to swim after his son. And presently a look of amazement came over his face. The gap between him and Cuffy was steadily growing wider. Mr. Bear was not the only one that I noticed this surprising fact. "Oh! Oh! Father's swimming back wards!" Silkie cried out. Of course he wasn't. But it seemed so to little Sllkle. "Hush! Hush, child!" said her mother. Mrs. Bear knew what the trouble was. It was this: Cuffy Bear could swim faster than his father! "Ephraim won't like that at all," thought Mrs. Bear. "And he talked so much about his swimming, on the way to the lake! Dear me! I'm afraid our outing will be spoiled." But it wasn't. Mr. Bear soon turned around and came paddling back. To his wife's surprise, he was smiling broadly. "I've played a little trick on that youngster," he chuckled. "He think.i I'm still racing him across the lake. He doesn't know I've turned back, and that I was only fooling, anyhow." "Ah! Then you weren't really try ing to catch him?" said Mrs. Bear. "Fooh! Pooh! Certainly not!" said Mr. Bear. "Why, I hadn't started to swim." But Mrs. Bear noticed, for all that, that he was blowing hard. However, she said nothing. If he didn't know that Cuffy had beaten him. the cer tainly wasn't going to tell him. It wasn't long before Cuffy too After the material is slashed, a thread should gather the full part The other half should have a strip of facing one and one-half Inches wide sewn to the upper edge of the slash on the right side of the material as It is in Figure 1. Then the lower edge of the slash is, gathered on the seam line ana drawn up to fit the straight end of the slash. The facing is then turned to the wrong side and the edge of the facing sewn over the gathers as in Figure 2. Red Chiffon A gown of bright tomato red chiffon is closely plaated and trimmed with wide bands of ecru lace which form the front panel, collars and cuffs. Raffled Frocks Many of the newest ruffled frocks obtain something of the Indo-Chlna silhouette by bringing the ruffles to the waist line in front and holding them with an ornament. Washing Bottles After washing bottles and cruets, turn them upside down to drain thor oughly and dry, and then cork to prevent the dust from settling in them. ' Hair Mattress A hair mattress filled with black hair is said to be more satisfactory than one filled with white, as the lat ter has been bleached and so it mats more easily than the unbleached kind. Carpet Beating. Spread your carpets and rugs on an old set of bed springs to beat the dust from them If you want them to look as if they had been done by a pro fessional, and very long.

And down he dropped into the water below. "I'll give you a diving lesson!" cried Mr. Bear gayly. "I'll give everybody one!" He hurried to the big rock and poised himself at its edge. "Now, watch sharp!" he warned his family. Mr. Bear waved a paw airly; then he gave a spring. But somehow his But somehan his diva didol tors out as b fcad expected. dive didn't turn out as he had ex pected. Instead of slipping grace fully into the water, he struck flatly upon the surface with a loud smack. Groaning loudly, he crawled to the shore. "Are you hurt, Ephraim?" cried Mrs. Bear. "Where are you hurt?" He laid a paw acrosa the place where his waistcoat buttoned when he had it on. "I believe I've broken my neck!" he gasped.

HERE'S A TALE OF Hoard Is Found Near East St. by Boys in Swimming . Treasure Island," tales of Captain Kldd, searches for hidden treasure in many spots from the old tin can in the ruins of a home to an atoll in the South . Sea Islands are stories that engross and intrigue us all from youngster to aged man or woman. It is always interesting when the villain and the hero of a story land on the spot where the map says the burled hoard may be found. When the exact location is carefully traced out from the ancient notes and two skeletons are found we hold our breath. When the wooden box, copperbound but bursting at the seams with gems and pieces of eight comes from its hiding place we imagine "ourselves at the scene and great is our pleasure. We dally with the words and linger over them even though we are aware that the villain and the hero must still fight for the possession of the treas ure and the girl who awaits them on the ship anchored in the bay. Aye, treasure tales are. great. New Britain has recently had its tale of hidden treasure in a modern setting, one which may be partially described though not fully we regret to say as the principals are remaining in the background.. It concerns rum, or its equivalent, alcohol, substitute for gold and gems of years ago. There is no hero, there is no villain, unless these two characters Inject them selves at a later date than this, and there Is no beautfful but foolhardy girl whose very innocence leads her into pitfalls. It seems that such girls are rare these days (innocent or fool hardy, take your choice). But there is a thrill in the story nevertheless, so we proceed. A few days ago several boys of the eastern part of the city, lured by the prospects of a refreshing swim in the brook near the Cremo Brewery, proceeded to the spot. Removing their clothing in the bushes they noted a set of mysterious looking containers, which were not there a day or so be fore. They proceeded to investigate and found that the containers were full of alcohol. Unofficial estimates place the entire supply at 29 gallons. The boys knew what it was but refrained from tasting the stuff. They did, how ever, tell of its presence among the neighbors after the swim. No dog-eared time-stained map was necessary, the neighborhood turned out the first evening after it was thoroughly dark . and removed the goods from the cache in the bushes to neighboring cellars where it would be more liable to do the most good. Rumor hath It that there have been several celebrations of the find since. Thre Is no indication of where the aiconoi came from, probably some I bootlegger is now mourning Its loss. There Is none where it went, some one may even now be mourning over indulgence In th fluid. It was there, it was found, It may or may not be (denoting a state of eristance) just now. The story is offered for the thrill you may get. ' poll's PALACE HARTFORD STARTING TONIGHT AND ALL WEEK Dally Matinee, :1S Evrninj, S:18. NO RAISE IN PRICES.
