THE RED CIRCLE By ALBERT PAYSON TERHUNE Author of “The Fighter,” “Caleb Conover.” “Syria From the Saddle.” etc. Novelized From the Pat he Photo Play of the Same Name by Will M. Ritchey. (Copyright, Itlt. by Albert Pay son Tsrhuss). JUDGMENT DAY. Os course, It wih a drvittn— a vi sion bred of terror, of suspense, of lung-continued nerve strain. At least no June always tried, In later days,, to make herself believe. Hut she had not teen aware of falling asleep. She was sitting there In tlie squalid little living room of the flat, brooding miserably over the future; and. seemingly, wide awake. Yet, unconsciously, as she sat there, she mi) have doled. For. as clearly as ever In her life she had beheld anything, she saw. “Circle Jim'* Borden come Into the room lee “Circle Jim” Borden, whose mortal body had been lying in the poiiers* held this many a day. June did not cry out. She did not stir Once she sought to speak, to question the apparition. Hut her tongue and her lips were paralysed. And now the stern and firm set lips of the apparition moved. More with her heart than with her eara, June heard the words that the specter lips formed ‘■.Tunc,” breathed the wraith's voice ' I am jour father —your fath er who died There Is no death, save to the body And I have come back to you I have come hark, be cause I cannot lest You alone can give me rest, by daughter." He paused And still that strange psrnlvsts held June spellbound "l sought to wipe out forever the Red Circle curse I sought It by end ing the lives of those who bore that curse But l failed You escaped me ’* There was something so sinister In the words that June felt a thrill of terror tingle at her heart. The voice was tinged with a tender long ing as again the wraith spoke "June—-my lltile girl, whom I nev er knew, in Ilf**—-you must help me. You. and you alone, can aid me now. I cannot rest until the clrrle is for ever gone While the curse endures, m* torture must endure 1 long for rest —for eternal sleep. But there can he no rest for the dead while their evil deed's live on My wins live on In you. poor daughter of mint*. And you alone can crush the awful power of the Red Circle and give me rest Your fate In In your own hands. Not onlv your fate, but mine You have the power. If you will but exert If. to— *’ He checked himself and turned his fierce gme in angry Impatience toward the door The door opened and Mary looked in Returning from her purchase of Supplies, the old nurse had met Max Umar, who had learned of June’s whereabouts and had hastened to her. leaving l.aroar in the adjacent dining room, Mary had come to toll June of his visit Now, entering the room, she saw the girl lesnlng bark In her chair with closed eyes This she saw. and nothing else. Khe had no hint of the wraith’s presence The obi woman tiptoed back to the dining room, shutting the door soft ly behind her. “The poor dear Is asleep, * she re ported to 1-amar, In a whisper, I won’t disturb her She needs It.” As soon as Mary left the room, Borden drew close to the moveless June once more. “It is In your power to save us both, daughter.” he said, eagerly. “Y’ou can save us You alone. You ran give me the rest I crave. "I was brought up to crime—to rerklovsnevH to the companionship of outcasts." went on Borden "There were hut two clean Influences in all mv life —mv mother and the DETROIT TIMES REPRESENTATIVE BUREAU A haTer*fl information department open only to one representative firm in each different line of busineaa and clarified under theae divisions, listing reputable Detroit firms In good basineM standing.

"W’iih you It was different Prom babyhood, you were surrounded by every influence for good.

June writhed inwardly, trying to tell him he was wrong—that h» cruelly misjudged her that she would do as he had bidden her And now the weird voice whollv lost its gentleness, its note of tender entreaty Into it crept a bulldog snarl of menace.

Will you?** "Hold on there”’ broke In Chief Allen’s peremptory voice, “You’re going a step too far, Mr. Gordon. 1 didn’t butt in. while you made him clear your own name. And I'ui mighty glad you were able to. But I can’t htve you Interfering with the Red Circle case. That’s a mat ter for the poitce. Let It alone' And let Mr. Farwell go." At Hound of the chief's voice, Far well’s vanished courage returned to him with a rush. “Am I going to withdraw the charge against the Travis girl?" he sneered "Os course I’m not. I’m going to prosecute her to the bitter end. The thief!" Chief Allen imerposed his muscu lar bulk between the two men. Just In ilme to prevent Gordon from fly ing at Ills enemy’s throat. Next morning a? soon as he could find out where she was living. Gor don went to June's apartment and offered his services as her counsel in the approaching trial. Gratefully. June accepted the offer; being familiar with the reports of his legal skill. He cut short her thanks by say ing: "And now. if you don't mind, Misa Travis, we’ll gc over the case, to gether; step by step. If Farwell is the only complainant against you. I've a notion I can shut him up by threats of a perjury charge You know he swore falsely against me. If there are no other complaints (you are as good as freed.'' But there were other complain ants Plenty of them, as Max Ia mar and Chief Allen were at that very moment finding out Max had dropped Into the chiefs private office for h chat wdth his old friend; and to try to erMst his aid in June’s behalf. But he found A1 len as firm as a rock, in the matter of bringing the R«*d Circle criminal to Justice. “I’d like to see It your wav, Maax," said the chief "But I ran t I’m an officer of the law.
