You know the Sta pletons? You've only got to say you re coming, and >ou will bo welcome." "And what am 1 to do when 1 m there. I asked, expressing my readiness to go. "Two things," he replied, deeply in earnest. "First. make believe that TvP gone abroad again on a secret mission; and, secondly " And he paused, a? though hesitating to ask me to carry out his desire. "Well?" T asked. "What?" "Secondly, discover from her what she knows of that scoundrelly thief Gar shore." he said, between his teeth. ^ > "What:" I cried. "She knows him; "VVu," ho answered in a hard 'voice. "I Hscover the exact position for me. Phil." T t - 1 was amazed ;it this. From him T trieo to obtain further Information, yet It was apparent that he knew hut litle. He was anxious to discover the truth. The man^ who had filched a fortune from his graap was Myra's friend! I promised him that 1 would go up to Yorkshire In his interests. "And when I let you know my new name and residence go to one of those foreign booksellers in Wardouv street and tsct me a few volumes of Friedrich Xietxscne's works in German, t fa"li live without his companionship.

' It wouldn't be the first time you've^ as sumed the Teutonic nationality?eh?" He laughed at certain recollections of his adventurous past, as together we rose and in the rising dawn made our way down the hill back toward Finsbury Psrk. At my advice he took a ticket to I*on caster. and as I shook his hand heartily, when he was inside the carriage, he said: "Well, Phil, old man, good-bye. Tnere isn't another man living who'd have done for me what you'v* done. See Myra and tell me later how she Is. Au revoir, old man?perhaps?perhaps for ever." __ , \nd as the train slowly movni out ot the station I saw emotion in those big, frank eyes?emotion that was unmlstaK able. CHAPTER XII. Concerning Myra Stapleton. I took the workman's train by the Tube from Finsbury Park to l^eiccster Square station, which was within a stone's throw of my chambers. Opening the door with my key, 1 four.d the morning paper, which had been push ed. as usual, through the letter-box Tired out. 1 threw myself Into an arm chair and opened at the m'ddle pages. Yes. it was there; two columns of it. At last the story of the tragedy had j !eaked out. evert though Morton and Cun- j liffe had been so careful to conceal all the facta from the public. ' A single glance sufficed to show that Cunliffe himself had written it, for it was almost exactly what he had told tn? ?n the previous evening. "The mystery," the account concluded, "appears to be one of the most puazling which the metropolitan police h#\*e ever been called upon to unravel. The case presents many extraotdtrtary features which, for obvTou* reasons, arc withhe d by Scotland Yard, but sensational devel opments are very likely to occur within the next few hours." 1 put down the paper and sat staring into space. The whole affair was inex plicable. The sensational development hinted at by Cunliffe was, no doubt, the imminent arrest of my friend, Granville Gough. , The inquest waf to be he'd that after noon. and ? was sorely tempted to attend It, but on mature reflection I saw that the furtner 1 remained away from He-d cllffe Gauiens and those making in quiries. the more jud'eious would be tuy actions. Where, i wondered, was the faithful maid, Marie Lebas? Surely she knew ere th's of tli# murder, and if not implicated in the tragedy wou'd return and muke some statement to the police. That Ralph Garshore had met L?ydia Popeseu and driven to the house In Red H'ffe Gardens was within my o- :i knowl edge, and vet the dead woman was not Lydia at ail: I alone was In possession of facts?facts unknown to the police, which, if published, would haVe undoubt edly provided a great sensation. 1 had suspected Granny of fligiit. but instead he had been down to Brighton to visit his little adopted daughter.

He had left for the continent was mil the infor mation vouchsafed Tiie mail clerk politely expressed his readiness to forward any letter I wrote, but t! at was all the satisfaction I could obtain. .? - On my way back along the Strand I was conscious of being followed. Though r ! ad escaped the vigilance of the tall de tective down at Sydenham, yet a watch ful eye was now being kept upon all mv movements by a youngish man wit.' i fair mustache, who had the appearance of a clerk. I was being shadowed: Back asain in my chamber#. I took a Bogdaroff from a big box which Grann> bad given me a couple of days before, lighted it and sat reflecting. Should I go north and execute the com mission with which my friend r.ad m | trusted me? ^ ! wanted to get away from l.ondon away from Cunliffe and from the too Inquisitive Morton. , Therefore at 2:20 that afternoon I took the luncheon c?r express from King e [?"toss t.. Yorkshire, having previously ?d [ vised Mr. Stapleton by telegram of m> 1 impending arrival. , I 1 changed at York, and ?n the smwet at ' Malion station fouinf the big ureen nlo?oI car from Stapleton Grange aaalt.ng me. and in it Myra's father.

Traveling: tn the crimson sundown -was J very pleasant after the noise and dust ; of the rail.* Four miles along that road, however, we came to a byroad, where a Mgnpost pointed to Marlshes Road sta tion. Passing this, we ran through a clump of trees, and then with a wide ?weep turned into a broad, well kept graveled drive lined on either side , by wide-spreading beeches, and at about ! a. quarter of a miM from the highroad ! we suddenly emerged before a lone six teenth ?century mansion, the mull.oned windows of which still preserved their diamond pane?, while the high square chimneys told of Tudor days. For the most part the quaint, com fort able old pla.ee wfcs clothed with thick-stemmed ivy, while the yew hedge* on either side , were clipped into fantastic shapes, and the old gray sundial upon the lawn told ; mutely of days long past and forgot ten. In the fiery sunset, with the crimson glare flashing upon its windows, it look ed very peaecfui, very charming, a relief indeed to the glaring scenes of Continen tal life and movement, amid which it was nowadays my habit to move. And as we approached I saw standing, bareheaded, upon the threshold a slim little figure in white, who waved her hand to me In merry greeting?Myra herself. "How sweet of you to come and see us after all. Mr. Ralston!" she cried, as the car drew up suddenly before the door and I stepped out. "Business prevented me before," 1 as sured her, as I took the soft little hand She offered. Myra Stapieton was certainly a very beautiful girl, essentially of the fresh out door type. She was a lover of the coun try. having been born and bred at the Orange, and educated at Eastbourne and at Boi*-le-Roi. She was a perfect blonde, with big blue-gray eyes and real ?'>lden hair. Her none was such as is seldom seen on a woman. It was purely Grecian. Another charm was a big dimple, which had lodged in the center of her pretty, : pointed chin. Hers was a sweet, almost childlike, face, which would have been striking anywhere, while those large eyey of hers seemed to look forth in wonder, j and yet full of trustful simplicity. In all the wide ranpe of my feminine acquaint ances no girl was so full of vivacity and inexpressible charm. Littl" wonder, there j fore, that Granny Gougli, who had run the I whole gamut of feminine blandishments 'in most of the cities of Europe, hud be ? come first fascinated by her, and had sub sequently fallen hopelessly in love with I her. Her sweetness, purity and innocence ap I pealed to a man of the world like Granny iGough. Her dainty figure, slim and neat ' waisted, was that of budding womanhood, ja perfect type of the fresh beauty of the Yorkshire moorlands. In the long, old-fashioqed drawing room with Its dark, time-mellowed paneling, its light chintzes, and its hie bowls of sweet smelling I^a France roses. Miss Cham bers came forward to meet me. She was a middle-aged and rather prim spin ster. who had been nursery governess to Myra in the days when Mrs. Sfapleton i was still alive, and now after the girl's , return from her finishing school outsiue | Paris she had become housekeeper and companion. | I stood chatting with father and daugh j ter beside the big bay window, whilo Bur jton. the man-servant, took my traps up to 'my room. Beyond the diamond panes lay a wide sweep of level, well kept lawn, and, j still beyond, the broad undulating moor lands now bathed in the ruddy light of the brilliant afterglow. How peaceful it a.ll seemed! How different, indeed, to the wild turfhoi] of the city I had just left! I glanced at the fair-faced girl who was talking to me so vivaciously, and com pared her with her grief-stricken hunted lover, the man who had, that very morn-j ing, plunged Into obscurity because o'f the guilt upon him. My mission was a strange one, and dif ficult withal. I had to make pretense that my friend was nourishing, for Sta pieton had not the least idea that Granny was merely a chevalier d'Industrie and that he llvod upon hit wits. Burton entered in a few moments and told me that my things were ready. Then I 1 we all bustled out to dress for dinner, i Hardly had I entered my . room In the east wing of the long rambling old house when I heard a light tap at the door, and I gave permission to enter. (To be continued tomorrow.) HOUSE IN FACETIOUS MOOD MESSRS. MANN AND BURKE HAVE LIVELY SET-TO. j Relative Morals of Pennsylvania and Illinois Discussed?Heney the Cause. The llou.^e was in facetious mood for ! the most part yesterday and the repre sentatives of the plain people were pleas ed to "josh* one another a good deal while considering the weighty affairs of legislation. Every once tn a while some | body would get his feelings hurt, and it was wonderful to see how quickly the statesmen would g?t o ntheir dignity. The payment of MU.000 special attor ney's fees to Francis J. Heney was dis cussed at length, and Mr. Heney was warmly defended by Mr. Mann of Illi nois. who said the only people opposed to Mr. Heney were those who sympathiz ?d with men accused of being gfarters. and that Henev needed no defense. Mr. Burke of Pennsylvania called Mr. Mann to order. saying that Mr. Mann's admission that Mr. Heney needed no de fense disposed of the necessity of con ; sunting the time of the House. The "Great and Pure State." "1 am glad," said Mr. Maun, "that only one member, and he from the great and pure state of Pennsylvania, is opposed to j Mr. Heney." He then took his seat. Resenting Mr. Moan's sarcastic refer ence to Pennsylvania as a "great and j pure" state, Mr. Burke charged that he j had been willfully, or Inadvertently placed 110 the position of denouncing ? competent ana earnest public oillcer. He objected, he said, because Mr. Mann was abusing the privileges? and patience of the House. /lie suggistion of Mr. Mann, he char acterized as gratuitous. "But 1 want to say," he remarked with wome warmth, "that when the great and pure state of Pennsylvania wishes to have its politics or its moral touc im proved It will iWi go to the gentleman from Illinois, tiic state uf Illinois or the i city Oi Chicago, from which the gentle ' man hails." The provision to pay Oscar R. Hundley for services as district judge in Alabama for the period of his recess appointment was ruled out on a point of order.' An amendment to provide an ice and re frijlerating plant for the Capitol was de feated. and an amendment limiting the employment of special attorneys in the Department of Justice so ns to prohibit their employment in the Panama libel cases, was ruled out. The House did not complete tfce bill. Cutter to Polieo Regatta Course. The revenue cutter Apache. Capt. Moore, is at Oxford. Va.. where she is to police the course during the regatta oi the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Club, which takes place at Oxford this week. This re gatta ,is one of the largest ar.d most ? Important that takes place in this section I of th* country, and it is generally at tended by boats and crews front ejubs along the Atlantic coast. It is stated that the local yacht clubs will be represented j at the regstta, but will not take part in the contests. It matters little what it is tJiat you want-whether a situation or a servant? a want ad. in The Star will reach the person who can fill your need. SOUNDING THE SENATE i Crane Is Hunting for Votes for Taft. COUNTING WESTERN NOSES. Borah of Idaho Explains His Position. I SAYS EAST MUST YIELD, TOO Crisis in Tariff Controversy Due in Next Thirty-Six Hours, 'Tis Said. Senator <*ranc of Massachusetts, some time* called tlie "jcreat pacificator" ?f 11 it* S?na.te, from a way lie lias of sniooth l inn out the wrinkles in difficult legislative 1 situations, is busily engaged in sounding the western senators on their prospective vote for a conference report carrying into | effect the Preshfent's program for free or lower dutiable raw materials, including iron ore, oil, hides and coal. He is admittedly doing the work in be half of the President, who is anxious to as certain the actual strength in sena te i ial votes of his policy. It is well known, of course, that the program for free hides and free coal is being strongly resisted by western sena tors. The point to be determined is whether the resistance will go to the ex tenntf votes against adoption of the con ference repurt, and if so whether they | would he cast in sufficient number to lm l peril the adoption of the conferees' agree ment. Borah Demands Cheaper Leather. Senator Borah of Idaho, voicing the sentiment of a number of westernVena tors. Is authority for the expressed opin ion that If hides and coal are placed on the free list, without a corresponding de crease in the duties on leather goods and other manufactures, the western republi can senators will be rebuked by their constituents. President Taft tells senators that he favors a .reduction of duties on manu factured leather. When that position is announced antagonism of eastern sen ators Is immediately aroused. Senator Warren of Wyoming, while standing out for retention of the present duty on hides, will be willing, it Is un derstood. to accept a reductkm of o per cent, but not willing to cut In half the present duty of l."? per cent ad valorem, j As against his contention for a duty on hides, the downward revisionists contend that as long as hides are dutiable the packers' trust will control the supply of raw material for the leather industry. Insist on Coal Duty. Senators from the coal-producing states are insisting upon an adequate duty on coal and opposing reciprocity with Can ada on coal. They thereby come in con flict with the eastern senators who desire cheaper coal for the manufacturing in dustries of the east. The supporters of a countervailing duly on oil are sca' tered and unorganized. *They are found among the Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma delegations. Free Iron ore is demanded by t he in dependent steel manufacturers of the At lantic coast. In a letter to the conferees Charles M. Schwab predicts that with lower duties on steel manufactures the independent mills will go bankrupt unless free Iron ore is granted. Michigan has two men on the conference committee. Senator Burrows and Representative Fordney. and they have been holding oui for a duty on iron ore to protect the great Michigan ore beds. The advocates of free ore are confident that Senator Burrows will be won over by the Presi dent and that free iron ore will be writ ten in the bill. Taft's Friends Encouraged. The friends of lower rates were very much encouraged today by reports that President Taft. confident that he can get .support for his demands for reductions on raw materials, will next turn his at tention to the general schedules of the bill and will demand concessions there from the high rates thus far agreed upon. The crisis in the tariff contioversy will he reached within thirty-s.x hours, it is thought. Results are expected from the conference between the President and members of the committee a! the dinner tomorrow night, to which he has invited ithe conferees. It is expected that he will make definite demands for reduced rates in the schedules and will demonstrate to the conferees the backing which he is re ceiving from the country at large. FUll RATE FOR G. P. 0. I " Will Hereafter Get 50 Cents! i an Hour for Overtime. i RELATES TO HALF HOLIDAYS Public Printer Donnelly Comes to the Rescue. PRESIDENT'S ORDER DOES IT j ? | Printers Say Controller Tracewell Is With Them?Once Printer Himself. Employes of the uovernment printing ; office compelled to remain at their duties j for more than tour hours' on summer holl- : days will hereafter receive the full statu- ' tory rate for such overtime. This is the result of a decision of the controller on the mooted question of overtime, follow ing the Issuance of the executive order of ; June 25 stipulating that on Saturdays four hours should constitute a day's work j during the months of July. August and j September. I Washington navy yard workejs are; j luckier, however, in that they receive j price and a half for tyork performed Sat- : urday afternoons during the holiday ; period. But price and a half for these ; holidays is becoming a habit with navy . yard employes, for they have been re- j ceiving this rate for the same length of ? time that printei y workers have been j given half price, and thereby hangs a; tale. The appropriation for the navy yard is | a lump sum, and the law states luat the same ratea of pay shall he Klven as are . usual and customary on similar work in j the commercial world As the "usual and f customarv" pracuce on the outside is to j pav one and one-half prices for labor on ! a holiday, the Navy Department Krants | that rate for overtime on the Saturday , half holidays. Printers, bookbinders, pressmen and similar trades in the government print ing office, however, are enumera ed in' tin- laws applicable to that institution, and the public printer is ordered to pay certain rates for certain work. The law J likewise provides that these employes j shall be given a full day's pay for holl-j davs. Thus happens that when then? j Is a necessity for the operation of por-> tions of the pl?Tnt on a holiday the'? workei-s receive the full *ight hours' time allowed by law Jnd credit for the actual number of hours' labor performed on that day. i The Roosevelt Order.

Mechanics and artisans, fur overtime, were to be paid "fifty per centum in addition to their regular and usual compensation and no more." The Navy Department at once construed this to mean price and a half, and a navy yard employe drawing $4 for the four morning hours would be given ?:> extra if detained four hours in the afternoon. However, through some lapsus memo riae the guiding spirfts of the big print ery decided that a per diem worker em- i ployed after the whisvlc mounded on a!

Former officials have uniformly and consistently held that the workers were: "excused" at noon by the President's or- j der and were already paid for the after noon time. Reference to the fact that the office was enabled to thereby receive the services of employes at one-half the pay I for ordinary days met a repetition of the statement that the workers were "ex cused." Donnelly to the Rescue. Under the prodding of Public Printer Donnelly the fiduciary agents of I'ncla; Sam have seen a great light, and the de-, cislon has been reached that President; Taft's order abrogates all other influences with the exception of the statutes of the! land.
