"In", en the ecret and iinrtn rt continues DAVE HENDERSON nhrusRcrl his sbeuldrrs, Impatient with hlmfclf, sb the guard opened n (Joer nnd motioned i,lm te enter. It wis nbstird, ridiculous! Xle had ever heard eC bnn prisoner visiting another In this fashion? Then wouldn't have been nny satisfaction in It anyhow, with a gtinrd pacing up nnd down between them! Well, then, who wj It! The doeP closed behind him he was subconsciously nwnre that the deer had dosed, and that the guard had left him le himself. J Je wis also subconsciously nirsre that his hands hnd reached out In front of him nnd that his fingers nere fiercely Inced In tlie jntcjrstices et I'lhe heavy stecl-vfire netting of Iho in- closure In which Im steed, and that lie faced another row of steel-wire netting, ceparated from his own only by the pice (het was required le permit the tusrd te pace up and down between llie two only the guard nann t cetne in i ;t from the corridor le take tip his ' Natien there. There wan euly u fate ' petrlng Ht him from behind that ether' row of netting n fat face the face! nas supposed te be smiling, but It wni like (he hideous grin of ii gnrgeylc. It j was the same face, the same face w.ith i ill rolls of fat prepped up en ita sh i Mumpy neck. There wasn't nny rhn in It, except that, the red-rlmmcd L or were mere eliiftr. That wns the e'nlv change In five ears Ihc eyes were mere shifty. He found that his mouth wns dry, curiously dry. The bleed wesn t lunning tbrmigii ins veins, uecause ins lingers en the wire felt cold -and el h ttEs hiiniine. the soul of him sud denly like some flaming furnace, and a read, passionate niry nnti mra hi n jrip, HUH u JliaK n!i lv" i"", v ..ux... lhat stumpy neck whom Ihc threat was, and and He had been waiting five tears for thnt and he was simply "lulling, just as that ether face was railing. Why shouldn't he &mil! That fat face was Uoeklo Hkarvan's face. 'I cucss seu weren t looking te isec me, Dave?" said Sknrvnn. nodding hl head in a sort of absurd cordiality. 'Maybe you thought 1 was sere en jeu, and there's no use saying I wasn t. That was a nnsty crack you handed me. If Tydcman hadn't conic across with .mother bunch of coin en the jump. these pikers down nt (he track would I'ave pullcil me te pieces. Hut T didn't reel sere long, ijbtc mat mn t me. And that nln't why u kept away." The ninii was finite safe, of course ,H en account of these wire gratings, nnd en account of the guard who was some seme seme where out there in the corridor. It was rcry peculiar lhat the guard was net pacing up und down even new in this little open space, between lloekle Skar- an and himself very peculiar! Uoekic was macnanimeus net te b sere! lie wanted te laugh, out in n. sort, of mani acal hysteria, only he would be n feel te de that because there were sixty two days left before he could get his loiters around that greasy, fat thrent. and he must net scare Iho man off new. "Attabey I" lloekio grinned. "Yeu bet seii're listening'. We ain't for gotten thobe j ears jeu nul me. spent together, hnve we, Dave? Yeu knew inn, and I knew you. I kept nwny from here until new, 'cause I didn't want, 'em te get the right dope en the betting didn't want 'em te think thne was any chnncc of lis playing up le each ether." "Yeu menfi you didn't want them te get wise thnt you were n creek, tee," suggested Dave Hendersen iinperturl) ably. ' , Hoekle Kkarvan hnd no false modesty his left eyelid drooped for the. second lime. Veu get flu idea, Duve," he grinned again. "They've gut te figure I'm straight (hat's (he piny.

Maybe T can handle him. He worked for me a geed many years, and I knew him better than his mother would if he had one. Hc'h stubborn, stubborn as hell, nnd threats ain't any geed, nor premises neither; but he tt n geed boy, for nil that. Yeu let me have n chance te talk te lilm privately, and maybe I can make him come across and cough up that money. Anyway. It won't de' nny hnrm te try. I nlwnys liked I'ave, nnd I don't want te see him dodging the police nil his life. Tydo Tyde man's dead, and, (heugh It. was really Tydeinan's money. I was n pnrtner of Tydcman 's, and if anybody en earth can get tinder Have s shell, I can.' " ISnekle put. his face closer te his own particular atretch ,of wire netting. He lowered his voice. "That's the reason won't believe mc! Yeu think I'm try inn te work vnu for half of thnt menev. Well, e l am, In n way or f Wouldn't nave ceme cere, nut I'm earning it, I.nnt lit Hin lal' T.. IhIIhi.

'I 11 give you one mere chance," whispered Hkarvan. "Ne!" lloekle Skarvan's fat fingers squirmed around inslde his cellar as though it choked iinu "All right !" His lips were twitching angrily. "All right!" he repeated ominously. "Then, by Cled, you'll never get the mener even if veu beat slice! Understand? I'll see le rrcsently I);ivn Hendersen found himself barli in (lie carpenter shop I'm here, and that's (he Tcnsen the guard ain't. !" There was almost awe and admiration in Dave Hendersen's oice. "Yeu've get. your nerve with jeu!" he said seftlv. Iloeklo Hkarvmi chuckled in hit wheezy way. ".Sum!" he snid complacently, "And that's why we win. Yeu g''t tin- In, den t you?" , He was whispering new. "Yeu can I get that cash nlenc. Dave. I'm telling jeu dlrniglit ( hey won't let ou. Hut they won't watch me! Yeu knew mc, Dave. I'll mnke It a fair split lifty-lifty.

The man had cunningly planned te hve him disappear by the murder route, hadn't he? And he owed lloekle Sltarvnn for thnt tee! If It: liniln't heel. for that he would hnve L'nl mwiiv with whether, en renehintr tin, nnvt cirn,,.i ;, the monej , nnd there wouldn't have been would turn te the richt or left, nr i-i'm. Dave? And 1 ee out of hern linv and (ell the warden it nln't anv geed, that I can't get you te talk. I guess that leeks nifty enough, don't it, Dave?" There was a fly elimbing tip the wire nettitijr. it zigzagged its eeurse ever the little squares. It was a geed gamble the no Ice I tlnrleratnnrl? that I I made you a fair, straight offer ieu ii nnd new thnt there'll he sonic one else besides you nnd Ilnrjan out for that coin and when the showdown cornea it won't be either you or Itarjan that gets it! And maybe you think that's ii bluff, tee!" "I never said T knew where the money was," said Dave Hendersen nnd smiled and shrugged his shoulders. "Thercfore you ought te stand just, ns geed n chance ns Unrjan or I. After I get wounded I kind of lest track of tliingt, you knew." "Yeu He!" said Skarvnn fiercely. "I I " He checked himself, bit ing nt his lips. "I'll give you one mere chance ngain. What's your Inst word?" "Yeu've get it. lloekle," said Dave Hendcrseij evenly. "Then take mine!" Skarvan rasped. "I'll go new and tell the warden you wouldn't say anything. If jeu. try te put a crimp in me by reporting my offer, I'll say you lied. I don't mind taking chances en my word being be lieved against the word of n convict nnd a thief who is known te be playing tricky! Yeu get that? And after thnt (Jed help you !" The man was gene. Presently, Dave Hendersen found himself back in the carpenter shop. The band-saw was shrieking, screeching insanely again. lie had smiled In there In the vioiters' room nt Hoekle Sknr van : he had even been debonair and I facetious he wasn t that way new. I He could mask his face from ethers; he couldn't mask his soul from himself. It . vecmed as though his courage were be ' fng drained nwny from him, nnd in its I plncc were coming n sense of Hnnl. i crushing defeat. Hnrjan's blew et last night had sent lum groggy te the ropes; but the blew Hoekle Skarvnn had just dealt had smnshed in under his guard nnd hnd landed en an even mere vital spot. Sknrvan's veiled threat hadn't veiled anything. The veil was only tee trans parent! "(Jed help you !" meant n let. It meant that, fnr mere dan gerous te face. ttn mere difficult te outwit than the police, there was new te be aligned ngnlnst him the criminal element of Sail Francisce. It meant Haldv Ylckers and Ituuty Mett. and IJnldy Ylckers' gang. It meant the! men who had already attempted le mur der him, and who would be eager enough te repent that attempt for the same stake $100,000. With Ihe police it would hnve been, mere than anything else, the simple thrust nnd parry of wits; new, ndded te that, was n physl- I ..i ,.... i..i. r .. t. .i !..!.. .. . cui. iniiiirMi ifiri'i- wii,.i- luiii,;'! uni, ,i i feel would strive te minimize. There were dives and dens In Ihc underworld there, as he knew well enough, where a I mnn would disappear from the light ei day forever, und where tortures that would put the devil's ingenuity te sliame could be npplied te innke a man open his lips. He was nel exaggerating! It wns literally true. And If he were once trapped he could epect no less than thnt. They had already tried le murder him once! Naturally, they had en tered Inte his calculations before, while he had been here fji prison; but they had net seemed te be n very vltnl fac tor. He had never figured en Hoekle Hknrvnn setting (lint machinery In mo tion again he had only figured en get ting ills own hands en Hoekle Hknrv.nn himself. Hut lie saw It new; nnd he realized that, once started again, they would step nt nothing le get thnt money. Whether Hoekle Hknrvan would hnve abided by his offer, en the basis that he would get mere out of it for himself that wpy, or whether It was simply a play te discover the where abouts of (lie money nnd thou divide up with his old accomplices, did net mnt (er; it wns certain new thnt Hoekle Hknrvan would be content with less rather llitin with none, and thai the underworld would be unleashed en his, Dnve Hendersen's, trail. The police and new the underworld ! It was like n pnck'uf wolves nnd n .nek of hounds In chase frfcm converging directions nfler the snme quarry; the wolves find the hounds might claph together, nnd fall upon one nnether but the qunrry would be mnngled and crushed In the melee. The afternoon were en. At times Davn Hendersen's hands clenched ever bis tools until It seemed (he tendons must snap nnd brenk with ti strain at times the sweat of agony oozed out In drops upon his forehead. Hoekle Skarvnn was right. He could net get that money alone. Ne! Ne, that, was wrong! He could get it alone, nnd he would get it, nnd then fight for it, nnd go under for It, all hell would net bold him back from that, nnd Hoekle SSkar aii nnd seme of the ethers would go under, tee but he could net get nwny with the money alone. And thnt nirnnt that these five years of .m-isen, live years of degradation, of- memories that wiuseated lilm. five years thnt he had wagered out of his Jlfc. had geno for nothing! Ged. if he could only turn te seme one for help! Hut (heic was no one, net n soul en earth, net n friend in (he world who renld aid him except Millman. And he couldn't ask Mlllmnn be cause f wouldn't be fair te Millman. His face must have grown haggard, perhaps he wns actlr.rr atrnnirelv. " I il.t Teny ever there had been e.isting :m- leus glances in bis direction. He took n grip upon bimsnlf. nnd smiled nt tin. old bomb-thrower. The old llnllnu looked pretty bad himself thnt pasty whiteness about the phi fellow's, face hnd n nnsty iippenrnnce. Ills mind went e.iek (e Mlllr.iin, working in queer, disconnected snntclics of thought. Ile was going le lese Mill man, tee Mlllmnn was going out tomorrow It had nlwnys been n relief te Inlk le Millman He hnd never told Mlllmnn where the money was, of ceurse, but Mtllnian knew what he, Dave Hendersen, wns "In" for. The library hour wasn't fnr off, nnd it would help le tnlk te Mlllmnn new. Onlj Mlllmnn wns going out to morrow nnd he wns te bid Mlllmnn geed-by. ' This seemed somehow the crowning jeer of mockery thnt fnte was flinging nt him that tomenow even Millman would be gene. It seemed te bring n snarl Inte his soul, tbe snnrl as of seine gaunt, starving benst at bay, the snarl of desperation films out in bitter, reck less defisuce. He put his hands te hlft fnce, and beneath (hem his jawt clamped nnd leikcd. They would n"ver beat htm, he would go under first, hu but ' Time passed. The routine of the prison life went en Hke the turning of some great, ponderous wheel that moved -.cry slowly, but ut the snme time with a sort of smooth, oiled Immutnbll ity. It reemwl thnt wny te Dave Hen Hen dereon. He wns eonncteua of no definite, details thnt tr.nrkcd or occupied the passage of time. The library hour l-.ni! rnme. lie wns oil his WUV te the I library new with permission te get a Loek, lie did net want n book, lie wns going te see Mlllmnn, nnd, Ged knew, be did net wnnt te sec Millman te esy geed-by.

AFTER Christmas always arises the fascinating question, "What i shall I buy with this Christmas cnccK .' i nerc can never he any doubt as te the supremacy of Stcrline Silver as a lasting and prcci eus possession. Bailey, Banks & Biddle ( empany have a marvelous collection of Dinner and Tea Sets and Flat Silver, as well as beautiful sinple pieces of endless ariety all equally exquisite. There are skillful reproductions of the Old English, French and Colonial design, and i replicas of the handsome old pieces created by this Heuse when it wns first established. A Silver Service from Bailey's will be ene of the things that the future generation will cherish as its most prized heirloom. ARE you annoyed by seeing the top and bottom edges of your spectacles or eye-glasses ? If se, let me advise you te consider the new-shaped lenses for veur next j pair, made by Wall & Ochs, Opli- l i-ians, 171(5 Chestnut Street. The W. & O. round lenses are a decided improvement en the narrow oval type, en account of the increased 1 comfort and improved appearance. I When you have your glasses adjusted i by this firm you secure the services I of their expert fitters, whobe many yenrs of experience qualify them te select the size and type of eye- glass most suited te your face. The bifocal is especially adapted te the 1 round lens and when far and near lenses are required you will find the 1 Ultcx te be the last word in bifocal I cfllciency. rON'T spoil your geed time during the holidays by worrying about soiling your new dance frock or slippers, because if you will send them te Bargs, 11 1!1 Chestnut Street, they will be able te clean them se that they wi.ll leek quite new again; nnd jeu will find their service te be very prenipt and efficient. But thej de net coiitine their work te women's eletlie.s, there are many men who .send their wearing apparel te Bargs' constantly suits te be cleaned and pressed, business uits and evening suits, and remember te have that white vest cleaned, tee. Bargs' also have a remarkable dyeing establish ment. It is often geed economy te have an old pair of satin slippers dyed black. T WISH te disagree with the old adage, "Fine feathers don't make fine birds." In this age of psvcholegv there can remain no doubt as te the supereniciencj' of the well-groomed man, who confident that his clothes are beyond criticism, can devote all his energies te his business. Such a feeling always accompanies t li e clothing puijeiiased at the stere of MaeDenafd & Campbell, lim-HG Chestnut Street. Their suits are, well made from handsome, fashion-1 able materials: cheviets, tweeds, fin-' ished and unfinished worsteds. Their cut, which fellows the best style gives n man that air of tas.tc and distinction. Added te the appear ance of the clothes is their durabil ity, toil cannot make a mistake in nurchnsiP" their wearing apparel, ...,, ., in van null, 10 a nccKiic $9.2c I '" "J,TU-TROUSER CORDU- ' nil i a. imiiL i.aici.v si.i .n Is ilZES 7 TO 17. $'1.73 8 9 i '"0R HOVS' CHEVIOT SUITS.
