Started Right 11 Weekly Bulletin. 1 NE explanation of the remarkable success of SAUL'S ADDITION is that it was STARTED RIGHT. The feast was prepared before the guests were in vited to partake. The lots were all reduced to grade, the streets were macadamized, sidewalks laid, sewers, wa ter mains and gas installed BEFORE the property was of fered for sale. Not a solitary PROMISE was made. None was necessary. People of discriminating judgment have shown their approval and appreciation of our methods and things have been coming our way right along. One good act of PERFORMANCE is worth at least a TON OF PROMISES. Another important factor that has contributed largely to the wonderful development of this section is the GRAND CAR SERVICE?its infinite superiority over that of any and ALL other suburban localities. It's just like living right down town?you can run down in a few minutes, and there is no waiting for cars?they are always at your service. It's no trouble to come or to go?just a charming little ride and a whiff of that glorious, vitalizing atmosphere that's always circulating around at SAUL'S ADDITION. Have you been there? Have you investigated its nu merous advantages and its desirability as a place of resi dence? It's well worth your while to do so. There's not an other place that compares favorably with it anywhere in the vicinity of Washington. There's going to be big money made by those who are making investments there. There are no other lots obtainable at low prices that possess so many advantages?with such certainty of immense increase in value. We cordially invite you to inspect the admirably planned and superbly finished detached houses now being completed. They are models of architectural beauty. Four were sold this week. Low prices and easy terms. Take 14th street cars north?20 minutes from U. S. Treasurv. Cars every two minutes. N. L. SANSBURY, 719-21 13th St. N.W.

The house wife will here lind all the little conveniences which appeal to her.

COPYRIGHT, 1909, BY GEORGE DTRE ELDRIDGE. t: XXI?Continued. "As a a matter of fact I formed no idea who it was. I simply knew that the second man's being- there prevented my going in, but it did not occur to me to be rurious ius to who lie was. I could not foresee what interest and importance the matter might haw a few hours later." "Vet when you knew it was important you still kept the fact to yourself." "I had not the slightest chance of de termining who the man was. I could give no information on that subject. There was nothing in the little T did know." "That was for others to determine, not for you," said Trafford, sternly. "It might have been the unraveling of the mystery for me to know the next day what you knew, and It was because It might have been, and because of what you feared the solution was, that you kept silent. Moreover, what stands out before all else is that to have told would have been to tell that you were 011 the ground almost at the moment the < rime was committed, and tfiat you did not tell!" Again Grimbleshaw felt that Trafford was driving the case home, and affein he felt that his own course might have been a blunder. At the same time, he knew why he had acted as he had, and that, given the same conditions, and the same suspicions with equal lack of knowledge, he would do the same thing again. He had accepted it as assured that Judith and Horace had ground for their l'ears, and he had been willing to take the con sequences, be they what, they might, of standing loyally with them?or her, he more honestly amended. Perhaps the mere fact that there had been no ground for suspicion was a minor factor, so long as this man was on their track. "Now." demanded Trafford, breaking in on his line of thought, "will you tell me what your business with Altenburg was?" "No," answered Grimbleshaw. "You have asked me that once before, and I told you that it was personal business, having no possible connection with this affair. It would have been accomplished with him alone, if living, and he being dead, it concerns nobody, and I don't pur pose being driven into revealing my pri vate matters for a gossiping village to tear to tatters." "In a case like this," retorted Traf ford, "there is nothing personal. What ever concerns AJtenburg in those last hours concerns the public until justice is done. Concealment doesn't conceal at a time like this." Again Grimbleshaw was driven to si lence, and again Trafford waited with imperturbable patience. Convinced that no answer Was to be expected, he linally said: "At least you may he able to clear David, for I take it you are willing to do that. Can you tix the hour, or rather minute, that you knew Altenburg was alive aud had some one with him?" "I don't even know he was alive. I don't even know that he was one of the two men In that room. I saw two shadows and heard men talking. That is all I know. If there were two men concerned in this murder he.may already have been done to death, and the voices I heard may have been the voices of the men who did the job." "They may have been the men you en countered two hours later." Trafford sug gested. Grimbleshaw. as well under restraint as he had held himself thus far. felt ids face change at this thrust. Trafford had his eyes on him, and he knew that his confusion could tiot fail of detection hv so trained an observer. Then there came to him what he had said to Judith not an hour before. "That is mere guesswork. I take it you are not interested in my guesses." "I'nless what you choose to call a guess is in reality a judgment based on something you know, as, for instance, the recognition of a voice." "A thing." said Grimbleshaw, not taken by surprise, as Trafford had clearly in tended. "of no value whatever, in my opinion. One hears a voice and fails to carry the tone. He hears another, under circumstances that suggest the first, or perhaps is asked if he recognizes it, and promptly says yes. when really ii is sim ply an association of ideas. Nothing, it seems to me. could be more baseless or utterly worthless." "Do you think that quite a fair presen tation?" Before Grimbleshaw could answer there was a hasty rush of steps up the stairs, the door was thrown violently open and l'ry burst in. "We've got Calden and he's confessed! ' he cried. "Whiclu one?" demanded Grimbleshaw, leaping to his feet. "How did you come to arrest him?" asked Trafford, sternly. "He had left the camp and was mak ing for Canada in charge of a disreput able fellow named Billings " "I know." interrupted Trafford. "I asked about the arrest." "I went up to the sleigh and said. 'Mr. Calden, you're wanted." 'For what?' he asked. 'The Altenburg murder.' I said. 'You've got the right man." he said." "You should have warned him," said Trafford. "It was out before I had a chance." "As an officer it was your duty to warn him before you answered his questions." "You don't seem to tind this arrest to your taste," cried Fry, his elation turned to bitterness, which he did not scruple to show. . . . ??I've no doubt It will prove ot great importance," said Trafford. XXII. Grimbleshaw Retains Beckwith. Grimbleshaw understood now that had I he left Calden at the camp he would have been safe from arrest for the time at j least. He understood as well that the arrest was an embarrassment to Trafford and did not run with his plans. He felt himself drawn into a game of the most elementary principles of which ho was Ignorant. It might ho that there was comfort io ho had from the rigging ho was certain that Fry was getting. but. if so, he was unable yet to lind it. While lie was walking the room, asking himself what he ought to do now. or rather, per ; haps, what it was possible for him to do (now. young <\ildon appeared, laboring under undisguised excitement that <u Grimbleshaw. Intent on his one idea, In dicated knowledge of the arrest. Ilia first woids confirmed this: "About my father " "It's terrible, awful," interrupted tlrlm bleshaw. resolved in no way to shield J himself; "I bla?ne myself " then he. in (turn, stopped dumb with surprise at t.'al I den's expression of sudden terror, which I sliowed clearly that lie h?d not know ri I and even now did not understand, i "What do you mean?" he gasped. "Is : there something new to In- alarm;<? over?" However the blunder had arisen, the, opportunity for explanation had be?-n made, and there was no choice for Grim blesliaw but to tell the facts, so far as lie knew tiicin. When he finished Caldeu came up to hint, wl He and trembling. "Dr. Grimbleshaw." lie said, between Ills set teeth, "let ine tell you, you are an infernal scoundrel! I have most unjustly suspected my father. I know now why you wanted his arrest and planned to bring it about!" "Palden." exclaimed the doctor, terror-, stricken at the accusation, "you are crazy! You don't know what you're say-1 ? ing!" "God knows you may be right!" he ex claimed, "for I am talking to the man j who would see my father murdered, if so i he could purchase safety! You advised him to leave the camp, didn't you?" | "Yes, but " j "He was safe there, wasn't he?" "I incline now to think so, but " I "I want none of your huts! 1 repeat, you're an infernal scoundrel! You're at liberty to take the words up any way you want to. You had to have him or | some one arrested, did you? A blin i 1 man can see why! I'll see to it that your j scheme don't save you! You seem to 'have forgotten that I was at the house as well as yourself, but I haven't " With that lie flung himself out or the1 room, leaving Grimbleshaw appalled, not ; alone at the accusation, but as well at the danger to all that might easily grow j out of Calden's present mood and irre sponsible state of mind. Nor did he hesi tate to face t!u* personal element in ! volved. Already was he under suspicion : tii the village, and while an accusation 'from young Calden would carry with it ; something to its own discredit, it musti ;#<till add to the stigma now resting on : him and make doubly difficult his posi ition. Especially would this be the case ' as he must and would maintain the s? -. j cret of Judith's presence at the house | that night. | Judith! The instant her name fame in he knew that this was where the real sting lay. Of course, she would side with her brother and think that he had be trayed her father. As far as he was con cerned that was sentence already passed. The temptation to reach her and ex plain before Horace could give his ver sion of the matter was strong upon hiin, and he started up to carry it into effect. But that was. perhaps, to set them at difference among themselves, when of all' times her safety demanded unity of pur pose and action. At that he seated him self again, the prisoner of his fears for her. Xone the less it was not iike him to sit with folded hands and await his fate. Young <"alden, in his present mood, was canahle of anything, and whatever he did might be the spark to the powder train to blow thein all skyward, if. indeed, tbn spark had not before been applied. He had got to have ad\tce. and advice that would profit him. and with that he seized his hat again and started for Beckwith ? office. [ Just as he reached the street he s?w I Reed turn the corner. His impulse wa< j to avoid him. Then, telling himself that it was time he learned to face what w,:.i sure to come to him in constant increase in the future, he threw his head up and marched straight on. To his surprise Reed rushed toward him with beaming face and extended hand. "Ah. doctor," he urjed. "I w.ibjust on my way to see you! .Mrs. Reed Insists that she can have no other doctor but you. She declares she'd rather die on your hands than live for any other doc tor. Rovce savs you understand the cusm better'n any other doctor can in a year and he advises bringing you back at once. He says he'll consult with you. if you want, but that you're the man to handle the case." (To be continued tomorrow. > Hotes of the Lighthouse Service. C'apt. Thomas J.
