' V Chief .of Police John Martin
when I had got together surßcient cour
age to beard the lion In his den.
A very tame and genial appearing
lion responded to my question -with a
quizzical smile, end the telephone bell
rang- sharply." A moment of attention,
and — "Yes— yes — Oh! What is your
boy's name? John? Oh, George— well,
he will probably be kept, yes, goodby,'
and. hanging up the receiver, the chief
again turned to me, spreading out his
hands In a deprecatory fashion. "That
Is the way It is all day." he said. "Peo
ple seem to think I am the whole thing
when it comes to giving out the jobs;
while, as a matter of fact, I have noth
ing to do with it; nothing more than —
than you have. What is it you want to
know? The women who disappear?
Well, mostlj'. they don 4 t disappear.
Nine-tenths of them show up again —
either return voluntarily to their homes
or are easily located; their friends
usually have an inkling of where they
may be found."
"Then the hundred or more disap
pearances reported to the San Fran
cisco police in the last year were not
actual disappearances?" I ventured.
"By no means," replied the chief;
•^ever more than one-tenth of them
are; that Is a fact which applies to
all cities."
"What is the proportion of disap
pearances in San Francisco in compari
son with other cities?" was my next
"It Is lower. There are fewer disap
pearances In San Francisco than in
most other cities of its size."
"Is there a special bureau to look
liter euch cases?"
"No. because the cases are not nu
merous enough to warrant such a de
partment. We run that along with the
usual detective work."
"What kind of w'omfn are they who
usually disappear? Who arc they?"
"They are mostly women who are not
In good circumstances. The women in
better circumstances are surrounded by
so many people, have so many amuse
ments and interests that they have not
the time to brood over troubles that
women who are not so well situated
find overpowering."
"Are the women who disappear gen
erally or ever women of education who
are trying to get along by themselves?"
"Xot often. There is the occasional

How to Make the Best of Bad Partners at Bridge
WE HAVE been at work for weeks
preparing a monumental guide
for playing bridge with bad part
ners. Everybody has been writ
ing books about how to play with
good partners, but no one has seen
that — as there aren't any good part
ners in the world, all partners being
more or less bad — what we really
want is a work on how to understand
bad partners and not on how to un
derstand good bridge.
Instead of avoiding, as we have
In the past, the bad players at the
club— biding behind screens in card
rooms and even .taking sanctuary In
the barber shop when we see them
approaching — 'we now /go bravely
forth and shake them cordially by the
hand. As a consequence of this affa
bility on our part and of our special
and kindly method of play with them,
they all hope for a chance to play with
us. We are known among them as
the only man who appreciates ."really
good play," as they call it, and as a
result of this they play a hundred per
cent better with us than with any
other man in the club. -
The forthcoming work, on which we
have been so busily engaged and of
which we have spoken Is to be en

such a woman is very seldom met with.
It. takes a woman of unusual strength
of character and will power to do this."
"Do mothers disappear?"
"Very seldom. If a woman deserts
her children it is usually a case "of
mental aberation."
"What is the average age of "the dis
appearing ones?"
"There are/ pio're young girls than •
older women.' A girl, who deliberately
runs away does'not appreciate what it
means to her, all that she is sacrificing,
and what, it will, mean to her later in
life, and if she runs away she does it
through thoughtlessness. Many young
women come from the country expect
ing to rind work, in the city, thinking
the work will be easier'and life gayer
and pleasanter than at home and they
soon learn that they have been mis
taken. Some of these drop out of
sight for one cause- and another? It
would be far better for them to remain
at home and marry good, honest men
whom they would meet in their home
environment. They have practically no
opportunities, for meeting men who
would make them good husbands in the
city, where they drag their lives" out in
long hours behind counters or in such
other hard and unremunerative work
as they can find, if indeed they find any
work at all to do. Then, of course,
there is the stage struck girl who is
lured by the bright star of ambition.,
and thinks she is sure to achieve great
wealth and fame and who, knowing
she can never get the consent of her
parents to take up the stage ,as a pro
fession, runs away."

The first dozen or so rules will con
vey to our readers some ' idea of ; the'
great importance of the treatise.
, Rule 1. Remember that- bad part

— endless in their variety. New spe
cies are constantly being discovered.

not singly, but in rounds of four.

and as; the population increases, the
number of disappearances increases in
the same proportion, 'as do ordinary
fatalities,' accidents and deaths." .. . ; .
Still meditating upon the disappear
ing 1 woman question 1 made my way
to the park, where" l encountered a po->
liceman ofE duty.
•."I want to talk to you," I remarked.
r'lnr 'In the discharge of your duty do you
frequently come across women who are
planning to get away, to drop out of
sight, or who are even contemplating^
suicide?" ; ." .
'Oh, yes; often," he replied. "When
ever we see a w^oman who sits a long
aime by- herself, gazing out to sea, we
know that something is wrong and we
keep our eves on her. When such a
woman is addressed we usually find
that she is in trouble of some •sort.
Most always it is a love affair; she
has found out thut her sweetheart has
eyes for another and that she Is down
and out. Sometimes it is a case of
despondency because she is out of work
or In poor health, but -when you get
down to the bottom of it you will al
most always find that it is a love af
fair, and she is thinking over the
suicide route. When you talk to her
you will . find that she sees but two
routes "open before her; •, she is afraid
to go home, even if she has a home
to go to, she fears exposure and dis
grace, she is alone and desolate . and
/her . hqart is broken. She thinks the
easiest way and the best is just to
slip out 'under a great, gray wave
which will tuck her under Its wing
and carry her out to sea as the even
ing fog rolls in from, the ocean and
no one will be the wiser' and no one
will mourn.' . .
-- "One girl whom I remember well was
bent on suicide not long ago, .and she
had an altruistic view of^the matter.
Her death,' she said,' would harm no one,
while if she continued to live the only
life that was 6N>en to her she would
bring sin;' disgrace and endless trouble
to countless others, men and women.
She had packed her trunk, putting in
It all her clothes and small treasures,
and had it ready to send by express to
her brother in the north, and ehe told
me of some pretty little toys and trink
ets for her brother's little ( son, whom
she loved so well, and who would say
with his baby smile; 'Aunt Emmie sent
me these from San Francisco,' and
they would never know where Aunt
Emmie was.' They would always be
waiting for her. and thinking that
Borne time she would return. She had
. formerly had stage aspirations, and
they would undoubtedly, think- her a
successful actress in some, great east
ern or European city. Oh, yes, that
was the better way. It- didn't occur
to her; poor thing, that when they-re
ceived her trunk they would at once
know that she was dead — rat least that's
the idea that would strike any intelli
gent person. What "became of her
• finally*? Oh, I talked to her for several
hours and got her into a mor« reason
able frame of mind and she seemed to
see things differently, and to feel that
she might have another chance to live
right. Eventually sfie wrote to her
brother in the north and he sent her
money to return, home. She wrote me
• once afterward that '» she was doing
well and was fairly happy."
The intending suicide seems to derive
a melancholy satisfaction from the act
decided upon, and almost without ex
ception leaves a letter of explanation

the effects. Three suicides wer©
brought into the morgue in San Fran
cisco in one day and each one of them
had left a letter. • :•
Of all the suicides, though, the most
sinister and" the most inconceivable is
that of the woman who Is determined
to kill herself without leavlnff any
trace of her Identity. For days, weeks,
and perhaps months she has "worked, at
her problem. She will die and she will
not let anybody know what became ot
her. Every possible means Is consid
ered. Finally her plans are laid, and
fronTher calculations it is hardly prob
able that anybody will ever see her
remains. Without doubt that period
preceding the taking of her life is ter
rible for her, more terrible than any
sane person knows.
