She thanked hire, and together they
entered the elevator and were lifted to
their floor. In the hallway Ruth grave
ly shook bands and said "Good night."
John tried to hold her little h.:nd long
er than was needful, but she shook
her head and slipped away to her own
room, just down a short ball. He
watched her open the door and turned
ti go to his own room when a thought

She came back quietly. "I'm so glad
you called me." she said, with evident
nervousness. "After all. it's ridiculous
ly early to go to bed. go tor a
ride some more."
They went out through Golden Gate
park and after a brief stop on the
bright beach came back, into town by
way of the Presidio.
Ruth was BOW quieted, and as they
got out at the hotel she sighed hap
"That was beautiful. John," she said.
At the desk the clerk handed Johu a
cote addressed in a crabbed hand. He

and turned to Rnth.
"Old Tom Kane got here tonightT'
be exclaimed. "He came while we
were out nnd left this note for me."
Ruth's face lit up wonderfully.
"Where is he? Where is he:" she de
manded. "1 want to see him."
At her door be left her with a hasty
"I'll be right In as soon as Tom comes,
"All right!" she called back, and
opened her door as he opened his own.
She paused on the threshold at the
sight within. A tell man in a light
mask was delving into the desk and
rummaging among her papers and be
longings. At the sight of her he quick
ly thrust a bundle of papers Into his
pocket and slipped toward the open
window. Then Ruth understood and
screamed for help.
John Dorr heard that call and In
three bounds was In her room. She
pointed to the open window, gasping:
"Tlist way! The thief! He stole the
Without a word Dorr leaped to the
window. It opened on a fire escape.
He peered down. No one. He looked
pp. A slight figure was mounting
j A'llckly and silently toward the roof.
Within another instant. John had
swung himself out on the ladder and
was climbing rapidly after the un
known housebreaker. He paid no at
tention to Ruth's agonised cry after
him: "John: John: Don't go after
him: He'll hurt your'
Helpless'y she peered out of the win
down and saw the two figures going
swiftly up toward the crest of the
building. The seconds seemed hours
ns she watched. Then she saw John
stnmble and catch himself. That de
tided her. She picked up her skirts
and stepped out on the platform her
self. Then she gingerly swung her
self out on the iron ladder and com
mence*! to climb upward. She saw the
thief reach the cornice and crawl over,
then John. She struggled on up sob
bing'#. bruising her tender hands on
the rusty rods. Once or twice she
stopped and called: "John! John:"
There was no answer.
Then she reaKzed that there was an
;!ier on the ladder below her. She
nearly lost her grip and fell. Surely
t must be some accomplice of the
thief! She hastened her way up the
adder, not daring to look down again.
At last she gained the cornice, where
the ladder 1 cut suddenly outward and
she must perforce almost hang sus

The hesitation was fatal to his pur

grasped for him. With a swift turu

he put off now that he had full sight
of his quarry.
Ruth watched the chase with hands
tensely ctasped over her bosom. She
could not stir from her position In the
full moonlight, near the edge of the
roof, nor did she move when Dorr fin
ally caught his uian and tripped him.
They fell together on the roof and
rolled over and over. e«ch trying to
balk the other of a good hold. The
fighting was furious, for Pell, still un
der the spell of drugs. was possessed
of tremendous strength which even
Dorr's hard muscles could not over
Suddenly Ruth heard a familiar
voice behiud her saying. "I'll be dad
blamed If It alu't a fight:" She did nol
turn. Her eyes were fixed on the two
writhing men.
Suddenly Pell started to roll over to
ward the edge of the roof, drnggiug
John after him. This new danger ap
palled the girl. She watched with fas
cinated eyes.
John Dorr was well out of breath by
this time and knew his man. It was
a desperate struggle, for the thief was
fighting for his freedom and possibly
his life. So Dorr settled down to hold
him until his wild strength ebbed and
he could handle him.
Henry Pell, on the other hand, knew
precisely his plight and saw with ex
actness what would happen to him un
less he escaped the huge arms that
tied him down. I.lke all men of his
class, he was averse to carrying weap
ons. Tonight he cursed himself for be
ing unarmed. One shot, the fire escape
and away: That being impossible, he
planned another mode of getting away.
In pursuance of It, he gradually work
ed himself nearer and nearer to the
escape ladder. If he could once get
Ills hands on those Irou rails and swing
himself over, his assailant must in
evitably either let go or drop over.
Pell knew the steel strength of his
own arms, practiced for years In just
such tricks.
But the presence of a second man
right in front of the ladder, as he
perceived through his blurred eyes,
rendered that hope out of the ques
tion. In desperate fury he kicked
Dorr violently, tore one arm loose and
drove his bony fist like a bullet into
John's throat.
This forced Dorr for the moment to
let him go. Pell rushed swiftly toward
the ladder. He was halted by the
sight of a perfectly level gun held in
the hand of a man who evidently knew
how to use It. He darted back, and
John caught him again, this time with
a well directed blow that felled him.
A second later the thief was helpless,
lying almost at the very edge of the
roof. He was trapped and he knew It.
There was but one thing to do, get
rid of the evidence that he had beeu
thieving. With a flirt of his elbow, he
managed to send the bundle of papers
which had fallen out of his pocket
over the coping and into the air. Then
he choked up to Dorr.
"Are you mad?"
! "Mud?" i»anted Dorr, letting his hold
relax. At this moment Ruth came out
j of her stupor and ran up to them, fol
lowed up by an old man, who had also

i«me up the fire escape. Ruth cried
out. "John:" then "Are you hurt,
: John?"
"Ruth:" he gasped. Then his eyes
iit on the form behind her and he
shouted, ."Toui Kuue:"
By this time the tumult had attract
ed attention in the hotel and a half
dozen employees and the house detec
tive emerged from the stairway to de
mand an explanation.
John started to explain, loosening his
! hold «n the prostrate thief, when the

Why Are Electric Light
Bills Higher in Winter?
This is the season of the year when
the Irate householder rushes down to
the electric light office and complains
about his bill.
"Just take a look at that!" shouted
one complainant as he slammed the
bill down on the cashier's window. "Jt'o
twice as much as It was In September
when 1 had a house full of company and
just the three of us all alone last
month, eh?"
The cashier took a look as he smiled.
"Of course," he nodded, "Quite na
"Quite naturally, eh!" snorted Mr.
Householder. "1 suppose If I burned
candles your bill would be Just "
"If you burned candles your bill
would be exactly the same proportion,"
interrupteti the cashier. "That Is you
would burn about twice as many
candles in December as you did in Sep-

Then the cashier took down a little
chart, handed It to the customer and
began to explain.
"Just suppose you went to bed at 9
o'clock every night in the year. In
September the sun sets at 6:09 p. ni.
and it Is dusky at 6:20 p. m., so you
have to turn on the electric lights at
that hour. This means you would have
to burn the lamps two hours and forty
minutes before retiring. At the end of
the month you would burn the lamps
a total of eighty-two hours. Now De
cember is the darkest month of tli«
year, the sun sets at 4:49 p. m., nnd it
begins to get dark or dURky at 3:211 p.

makes a total of nearly six hours a
