The woman she had1 found in his cottage that night when ! she slipped into the clothes closet,! was his wife. “Well,” she demurred, “you have n’t been fair. Do you think so?” Hp fcnlri hor frankly tlial lie UlOugUt he had. She had, he reminded her, thrown herself at his head. It was n’t his fault. “Gawd, I love you,” she moaned. “Man, I love you with all my heart and soul. I took your part tonight when they blamed you for the fight at home. I’ve done everything pos sible to help you—I simplv cannot live without you. You can’t let me go. I won’t go—” “You must,” he said sternly. She began to sob brokenly. “You can’t drive me out of your life. You’re the source of all my joy and happiness. I’ll die without you. ' Don’t-” “You must think,” he itfjbraided her. “You wished it upon yourself. I have my reputation to protect.” Molly didn’t know that he was trying to save her for her future, that he really did care for her, but had been sobered by the fight, and wishing to stave off, for her benefit what he saw coming, he had lied to her. If she had known, this scene with her could have been avoided. There was a long glass vase on the massive table, a red vase of flowers, almost as thin as a rapier blade. Heavy glass, it would make a good weapon. "Well, you can’t get away with it,” she stormed. “You can’t. I’ll do anything before I’ll let the other woman get you. I’ll even kill you so I can put flowers on your grave rather than love you living with an other woman.” Then, before he knew what she was about, she picked up the vase and brash°d his head open with it. He fell upon his face and was motionless. Frantic, realizing what she had done, Molly Cage called her mother. While the latter was en route to the author’s cottage, a policeman pass ing down the tree-lined walk, heard Molly crying and stopped to investigate. Thus Molly Cage found herself in the clutches of the law. All the above evidence was intro duced in court. Only because the writer lived, was this petite colored girl saved from further torture at the end of a rope or a prison cell for life. She was released and fled to unknown parts. Although the author has forgiven her, he never wishes to see her again. He thinks the affair ended for the best, even though he was painfully injured physically. \ ASPIRIN is always ••• 4 BEWARE OF IMITATIONS Unless you see the name Bayer and the word genuine on the package as pictured above you can never be sure that you are taking the genuine Bayer Aspirin tablets that thousands of physicians prescribe in their daily practice.
