The House of Cards ( Continued from Page 14) "Well?" demanded the chauffeur, shaking himself. It was the same voice that had come twice over the detectaphone. Hennessy was as cool now as if he held four aces. "You are under arrest," shot out one of the Central Office men. "For what ?" he demanded sharply. They were now hurrying him down the hall to the boudoir. "For running a gambling joint," re plied Clare who had heard the ques tion. "Nonsense," protested Mrs. Living ston haughtily. "Who is this person who presumes to intrude into my apartment? We were giving a little private party. This is an outrage. Can't a person play cards " "To which cuppers like Mrs. Carlyle bring the guests?" flashed Clare. "Indeed!" laughed Hennessy sar castically. "And where do you get off?" "Right here. And let me tell you something. You are no chauffeur. You knew, better than others, that the chauffeur of a rich family is generally apt to be better informed about the habits of the various mem bers of the family than the family it self. When a husband —or wife — announces an engagement somewhere — and then goes somewhere else — there is one person at least who knows what is going on. You knew. You got the position in order to sug gest and aid in it. As for me, I started by reasoning that a chauffeur, especially if he is tall and good look ing and sporty, is worth cultivating— at least watching. I watched." Half conscious now of what was going on about her, Mrs. Carlyle was listening, occasionally glancing about apprehensively. "I tried to stop," she sobbed, "oh so many times, but — but — he had me in his power. I lost. I had to pay, or he would have told. The harder 1 tried to get the money, the worse it was — until I even had to give him my " Clare laid a finger softly on her lips. Then she crossed over and opened the drawer of the dresser by the window. From it she drew the transmitter of the little detectaphone. "We heard," she spoke rapidly, ex plaining to the oddly assorted audi ence the uncanniness of the little black disc with its perforations and mysterious internal mechanism. "We have heard everything. For two days not a word that has passed in this room has escaped us." IT WAS a tense moment. ■ Hennessy, all his bravado gone be fore this new turn of events, seemed on the verge of collapse. They had the goods on him, he knew. Mrs. Carlyle was crying hysteric ally, her face averted from her hus band's. Carlyle was nervously thrusting his hands in his pockets and alternately drawing them forth. At last he pulled out the package in tissue paper which Clare had laid be fore him a few hours before in his library. Mrs. Carlyle shrieked. Her husband knew all! There was no hope! Carlyle looked from her sternly to the now pitiable object that Lawson and a detective held by either arm. "I '11 pay It back — all," whimpered the gambler chauffeur. "You bet you will," blazed Clare, "every cent, — and more." "Augusta," broke in Carlyle huskily. "I could not believe this until I—" his voice seemed to fail as he saw the mute alarm and despair in her face. "Augusta," he added, leaning over, "I heard, too. I heard you repulse him. Miss Kendall has saved you from yourself. Come back —I — 1 forgive you."

Paint, grease or other stains can be removed from colored garments or from materials the colors of which are not fast by the use of chemically pure chloroform. Take the garment into the open air, and lay it upon a flat surface with a piece of clean white blotting paper or absorbent cloth under the spot. Then pour on a few drops of the chloroform, and press through the stain. Do not rub hard, and be sure the chloroform is chemically pure. The spot will come out readily, and without injury to fabric or color. This treatment has proved efficacious where gasoline, benzine, naptha and other cleaners have entirely failed. —L. B. T., East Orange, N. J. If on wash day. tho housewife will fasten her hosiery to the line with the clothes pins in the open end of the sock or stocking instead of the toe end, her subsequent darning task will not be quite so heavy; for the toe end will be spared the extra wear and tear caused by the tight squeez ing between the pin and the rough, unyielding rope. I have learned this by experience.—A. I. F., San Fran cisco. When a handsome bordered table cloth began to wear, it was divided lengthwise and the outside selvedges overhanded in a tiny center seam. A narrow hem was put at the sides that were thus left raw edged. When the cloth was laundered the center seam could not be seen, and the bor NEW WRINKLES ders running through the center made the whole thing prettier than it was in the beginning.—E. S., Sara toga Springs, N. Y. By having several porcelain pans to fit your silver baking dish, the one dish may be made to serve an entire dinner. Escalloped Irish potatoes, caramel sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and a pudding may be baked in these several pans and passed, one at a time, in the same sil ver dish. Even for a second serving, the changing of the pans in the kitchen takes but a moment, —M. L. H., Anchorage, Ky. Prepared polishing cloths for silver simplify the weekly cleaning, and may be made at home. Dissolve half a cupful of shaved white soap in a cupful of hot water; when cold, stir into it three heaping tahlespoonfuls of powdered whiting and a few drops of ammonia; blend into a smooth jelly. Have ready suitable pieces of old, soft flannel or table linen, lay these in the jelly and allow them to absorb as much as possible; squeeze slightly, just so that they do not drip, and let dry. A quick rub with one of these cloths will remove all tar nish from silver, and there will be none of the dirt that usually accom panies the use of powders.—M. E. S. 11., Michigan. Tn removing grease spots from gowns and draperies, place French chalk on the spots for a few hours. — Mrs. E. W. T., New York.
