Put One (Continued) What could Lilian sayT To her self ehe was constrained to admit that In all probability he was right In his conclusions respecting him self. The evil strain would out, and now that the bad on was no longer detached from the good, working alone and Independently, the fall of Von Geldenstein at some future date seemed assured. And. with his money and power, what ruin might accompany his fall I Els crimes would be on a large scale, Lilian figured the possibility of a great financial disaster, the ruin of hundreds of Innocent people, the Inevitable misery and death that would result. She Glanced at. the man and his face 'was the face of Meyer, though be spoke with the voice of Von Gelden stein. For Good f Society. Ton see that I am right?" he said. "I understand what Is pass ing In your mind. Tou appreciate the capacity for 1U of a man In my position If he has the ill In him. There is no getting -away from it. For the sake of society I must be removed from a place where I may work irretrievable harm. And there is no other way but the one X propose to take." "But the scandal." murmured Lil ian, helplessly; "think of ill And , you I cannot think of you In this house but as your honest, upright elf you real self, however much you may doubt it that you would willingly yield yourself to such a "Tou are still thlnklng'of the two " as different persons," he said with A faint smile. I "Tea. I cannot help it. They are efferent. I shall always look upon you as an Innocent man." "Von Geldenstein is dead al ready." He turned his face to her slowly. "The other Is the living Individual. Look at me." She looked, and 'she knew that be spoke the truth. "But I cannot bear it" there were tears in his voice "you have been so kind to me, and and I feel that if I had not Interfered this might not have happened." " "If you had not Inte-fered," he said calmly. T should already he in the hands of the police. Tou can ,. not'Tlame yourself." He stretched out his hand to her. "I am very grateful to you, Mrs. Wllloughby, for all you have done." She took his hand and pressed it feelingly. "Oh, I am sorry sorry!" she murmured. She could fled no other word to say. The Hand of Cain. . "Dont forget that this hand has Mood upon it." he said, as he Cently drew it away. "It might even have been stained with your blood. Tou must not be sorry for a man who sought to take your life." Lilian's tears were falling un checked. "It Is good of you to feel for me," he said. "I did not think that any one would trouble about me znueh. It Is lucky that Von Geld enstein has no one to mourn for him, no one to feel his disgrace. The world will wonder, but It will not weep. Rachel's a good woman, hut not given to emotion." He paused as if allowing Lilian time . to resume her composure. "And now," he went on I have more to say to you. But we will first send off this letter, as there is no time to be lost." He rose and rang the belL "Don't send it don't send it." she muttered? The door opened Von Gelden stein had unlocked it and a man servant entered. In a firm, un emotional voice he gave his in structions. The letter was to be handed forthwith to the Inspector In charge of the police station. "In half an hour they should be here," he said. "That will give roe time for all I still wish to say to you But we must be brief. Please give me your whole attention. Draw your chair to the desk so that you may cee these papers. Thank you." Lilian mechanically -obeyed him. "To begin with, this is the confes sion of which I spoke. I wish you to peruse It, so that you may know exactly what to say in court when you are questioned. It is true In substance. Kindly read It care fully." He withdrew from his desk and busied himself at his safe while Lilian read as follows: Geldenstein Shows Confession. "L Reuben Von Geldenstein. mer chant, hereby confess that I, and X alone, am guilty of the murder of Conway Franks some weeks ago. "For many years, while success fully carrying on my business and living a life of apparent respect ability, I have been addicted to periodical leanings toward a crimi nal existence. These fits have come upon me about once a month, and during such periods I have been used to wander aimlessly about the streets. Imagining myself penniless and in want, stealing when the occasion offered, spend ing the nights either In the open air or In common lodging houses. I derived a strange pleasure from this caprice, having all the time the knowledge of my real wealth and position. My head clerk and my sister can both attest to this peculiarity of mine, though they were In Ignorance of what I did during the periods when I absent ed myself. "It was at such a time when I .fell In with Conway Franks. We drank together at a public house. He had been raising money, and Bis pociceis -were iuii o; goio. e was half drunk, and made no at- I tempt to conceal his property. X determined to rob him. "I lured him Into a suitable spot. But he was a powerful man. and I know that a struggle would Im mediately give the alarm and at tract the police. So I watched my opportunity and stabbed him in the back. Then I hastily secured his property and made off. "In proof of the truth of this statement I herewith hand over to the police the knife with which the deed was done, a purse bearing the name of Conway Franks, a pin which I removed from his tie. and a set of pearl buttons which I cut from his coat. "My sole object In making this declaration Is that T may protect society from any further manifes tations of these criminal tendencies which I am unable to restrain. I have recently been watched by Mrs. Willoughby, campanlon to my sis ter, who will attest to the truth of what I have stated herein, as far, at least as my nocturnal wander ings are concerned." Such was the document. He turned as Lilian ceased reading. "Tou understand," he said, "that It Is to that statement I wish to adhere. Let there be no suggestion of a doutfle life." 'Lilian Agrees to Plans. Lilian bowed her head. "I will remember," she murmured. "Thank you. I knew I could trust you. And now" he was standing over her beslde'the desk "there Is one thing more. This Is my will. I wrote It this morning, and called In two of the servants to witness my signature. It annuls any other will I may have made. I have made provision as you see for my sister and for certain serv ants whom I wish to remember. There is also a legacy for Angela. With these exceptions I have left the whole of my estate to you." "To roer Lilian pushed back her chair In confusion. "Tea, to you. The world will think you my sole heir, for I have left you the money uncondition ally. Tou will not be worried with the business, for I have transferred that to Thompson. Let him do the best be can with It." "But .there are conditions you wish me to observer cried Lilian. "Tou wish me to be trustee for your wife and children?" "Tea, My wishes In that respect are written upon this paper, which you may take possession of at once. I am trusting to your honor, for legally the whole estate will be yours. But I dare not mention the names of my children In the will for fear of arousing suspicion. J wish you to live In this house It is yours. My sister will probably elect to go away. Go to my wife and say that you wish to provide for her and her children. Bring them all to live with you. The woman Is quiet and amenable: you will find her no greater trouble than Rachel has been. But the children you must have them edu cated and trained. Let the boy con sider himself your heir. Make a gentleman of him. That Is my wish. Give me your word that you will do this." "I give you my word." said Lilian solemnly. "Swear It and I shall be happy." "I swear it." "Thank you. And now r think that Is aiL Perhaps It Is as well," he added with a half smile, "tor I fancy the police are at the door." As he spoke there was a violent ring at the front doorbell. He rose and extended his two hands to Lilian. -Go now." he said, "for" I will meet them alone. All my papers are jn order, and I have nothing further to explain to you. Be faithful to your trust." "I will I will." Lilian raised her tear-stained eyes to his face. She remembered afterward that he was very calm, and that his eyes had re gained the frank, straightforward look that used to characterize them. "God bless you!" He stopped and kissed her forehead. "Now go." He polntod to the door. And so she tore herself away. A few minutes later a cry for help rang throughout the house. Lilian, with Rachel and some frightened servants, made her way to the study. The millionaire lay upon the floor and a couple of police men knelt by his side. "Send for a doctor Quick," said the Inspector, "though I'm . afraid It's no good. He must have poi soned himself as we were shown into the room. Pruslc acid" he sniffed at a little vial which be had picked up. Geldenstein had elected to appear before no worldly tribunal. CHAPTER CIII. A Dead Man's Children. Lilian's accession to vast wealth caused a sensation in New Tork only surpassed by the dramatic confession and suicide of the mil lionaire. Many unkind words, in deed, were both spoken and writ ten, and "undue Influence" was hinted at by those who, without any -reason whatever, chose to consider themselves overlooked. Suppositious relatives of Von Geldenstein sprang up from every side. They called at ail hours and seasons, and loudly resented Lil ian's refusal to see anyone. Ignorant of Relatlonahlp. False applications abounded, but the true relatives made no sign. Mrs. Meyer and her children put in no claim: they were evidently in complete ignorance of their rela tionship to the dead man. Lilian employed a capable detective to watch them, fearful lest she might lose touch with them before the time came for her to keep her prom ise to Izrale. She was tffralJ of doing this before the excitement had blown over, lest she should give rise to fresh talk and scandal. (To Be Continued Monday.)

T Now for the Currants PUT UP SOME FOR THE WINTER. Some Practical Suggestions Which, if Followed, Will Add to Your Food Variety By Loretto C. Lynch. A KB currants In aVaaon in your neighborhood Just new? If they are, be sure you are making the most of them. Fresh currants should be quickly rinsed with cold water, removed from the stems, sprinkled with sugar and set aside te chill. The alight tartness of ripe currants ap peals to the palate quite as much as the grapefruit, which la se popular at many breakfast tables. Currants contain mineral salts that act as body regulators, and while currants ef themselves have practically no food value, they are eaten because of. the- mineral they contain. Currants combine nicely with ether fruits, especially berries. If your favorite berry is disappear ing from the market or becoming scarce) .and high priced, buy half, berries and half currants and com bine them. Probably you have never tried cooking mutton In currant' Juice. A quart box of berries should be mashed and strained. - Sufficient water to cover about a five-pound piece of mutton should be added. The water and Juice should be hot before putting In the meat. Let the meat cool In the water In which it was cooked if wanted cold. -"Or, if Puss in Boots Jr. By David Cory. AFTER leaving the Gnome King, as I mentioned In the last story. Fuss turned t one side to avoid climbing the hill, and continued his Journey, but al ways keeping in sight the blue bird's . beautiful form. It was al most dark when at last they came to a dense forest. The Blue Bird flew back and settled herself on his shoulder, evidently afraid to eater, the woods at so late an hour. For In a deep, black forest, with ' all sorts of strange shadows and .ghostly trees, one never knows who may be lurking out of sight; and Iuss, who with his trusty sword, in broad daylight, would have undertaken to keep any living boy or man from doing serious als- chUf, felt Ms teeth set hard and his heart stand stlU as he came into the shadow of the great trees. The little bird nestled close ta his cheek and refused to leave his shoulder. Fuss, Indeed, felt that be must now look out for himself, and though his heart beat high, he bravely trudged forward. It was very unlike the Woods to which he had been accustomed when walk ing with his" father. Fuss in Boots, where bright geen maples and beeches and birches make a twink ling green leafy bower overhead. Instead, there were solemn pines and hemlocks, and as he entered deeper great caverns appeared la the rocks and narrow galleys lnte which one might easily fall aad break one's neck. Luckily. Puss had plaeed the Ms bird in his pocket, fearing that the low hanging branches would brush her off his shoulder. Through this dismal place Puss kept on, with his knees shaking, but with s brave heart, until he came to a great pine, which evi dently had been struck by light ning, fer It stood up white and tall. lifting 1U bare arms to the sky. like some spectre giant crying for vengeance. Right at the foot of the pine, on a decaying log. sat a little old man, who was altogether the ugliest locking object that Puss had ever seen. He was about half the size of an ordinary man, though the whiteness of his haJr and beard showed plainly that n would never be any taller: and though his body was short and crooked, his face was long and pale, but lighted up by wonderfully brilliant eyes. These were fixed on Puss from the moment he came in sight; aad piercing through the darkness. It Is no wonder they chilled him to the bone, althoagh there seemed to be a spell In the strange eyes that drew him on In spite of himself. "Come alongl What are you afraid ofr cried the dwarf. In a little dry voice, that sounded like the crackling of a dry twig be neath one's foot. Puss hesitated, and. as if seeking the comfort of something alive and friendly, thrust bis hand into his pocket alongside of the little bluebird. "Come'on. come on. little masterr repeated the dwarf. "Here I have been waiting more than an hour to ttll you some good news, and now you are here you would binder me because you are such a coward." "I don't know you." said Puss. "Well. well, no matter for that. I know you well enough. Would you read about gnomes, and then be socowardly that you would fear to meet them!"
