Short Separation May
Ca'm Matr monial Sea
The difficulties that wreck domestic
happiness and bring husbands and
wives to divorce courts have been
discussed by Hubert S, Howe. SI. D.,
In Good Housekeeping. The sane
way to save marriage, he says. Is by
thoroughly understanding the hazards
that threaten It, and preventing as
many ns you can, by common sense.
"If an actual clash has occurred,"
he advises, "It may help you both to
separate for a short time, (to to quiet
spots where you can think tilings
out. In the interim let each of you
call up every fine trait of the man or
woman you married, his or her diffi
culties, and the courage and patience
with which they have been met. I.et
your thoughts dwell on the good
times you have had together.
"Don't go where you will run Into
temptation—an unscrupulous man or
woman who wants to create a tri
angle, or a mother who eggs on the
conflict. Stay apart only long enough
to regain poise. Then come hack—to
each other, to the home that belongs
to you both, to the love that Is there.
If you will recognize it—always wait
ing." »

CHAPTER IV—Continued
For a moment she considered Tele
phoning Dan McNamara, then decided
the worthy fellow might prove an em
harrassment. So she got a pistol from
Ter bureau drawer—because she was
a practical soul and dwelt alone. She
had purchased the pistol as a precau

the pistol, took a long breath, threw

"Don't be silly, Lanny dear," a soft
voice entreated her wearily. "It's
only me."
"Nancy Beiden— you little devil,''
Lanny almost shouted. "Come in hero
this Instant."
Nance Beiden reeled In and Lanny
closed the door behind her, turned
the bolt, switched on the hall light—
and screamed.
"Pipe down," Nance commanded, in
that queer, faint, weary voice. "I'm
not a corpse, but I'll tell the world 1

l.anny, dear, I crashed the gate."
"Well, you'll crash out of here In
a split second, you little hellion," Lanny
:rled sharply. "Wet as a dishrag and
pour hair like a witch's, and covered
with blood. Where are you hurt?"
"Bullet through my left arm, high
op near the shoulder. That guard
could shoot, and he did! If my boy
friend hadn't shot back at him and
made him hunt his hole I'd be flshbalt
this minute."
"You've got to get out of here,
Nance," Lanny was terrified. "How
many visitors have you had since
you've been In San Quentin?"
"Just you, Lenny."
'The authorities will look me up and
They'll come here. Understand? They'll
come here—there, they're on the tele
phone now. Oh, my good lord, what
have I done to deserve this?"
She dashed Into her kitchen and
cook down the telephone receiver. And
tgain a masculine voice said:
"Miss Rebecca Banning?"
Lanny controlled herself. "Yes," she
vald calmly. "Who's speaking?"
"Dan McNamara."
"Oh, heIJo, Dun. How are you?"
"Fine, Lanny. How's yourself?"
"Well, I might be dead for all the
interest you've taken In me since you
swallowed that good highball you
grafted off me the day you came to
Doctor Burt's office with that Nance
Beiden girl." She added archly—"you

Dun McNamara laughed. "Can 1
come out now?"
"The very Idea. Of course not It's
almost ten o'clock and I'm Just about
to retire!"

my gun from a speedboat off the point,
and made him hunt his hole,
swam out to the boat under cover of
their protective fire; they hauled her
in and beat It forty-five miles an hour
across San Bablo bay and headed up
toward Carquinez straits, while day
light lasted. After dark they doused
their lights and sneaked back. The
warden telephoned Central office here
and gave the alarm. 1 wasn't on hand,

She ran to the kltcher. turned on
the hot water and set an enameled
skillet under the faucet ; then re
turned, undressed the girl. In an ad
joining bathroom she found clean
towels and placed a cold one on her
head. When she returned to the
kitchen, the enameled skillet was sit
ting In the midst of a cloud of steam,
so she knew It had been thoroughly dis
infected: she filled It with warm wa

a wet towel mopped the tiro holes In
Nance's arm and examined the wound.
"Missed the bone," she decided.

covered a small bottle of Iodine. So
she doused the wound with It, wrapped
a cold towel around the girl's shoulder
and tucked her Into bed.
In the living room she found a brass
box with cigarettes In It, so she lit one
and sat down beside Nance, with her
capable fingers on the girl's pulse. Evi
dently the count was satisfactory, for
l.anny scowled at the girl and growled:
"You little devil! And T crashed the
gate,' says she proudly. Well, If you
aren't the little hell-bender! «You've
got the nerve of a lion-tamer!"
She found a comb and brush In Dan
McNamara's bureau and combed and
smoothed the dank, straggly black bob,
and when that was done she unbent
long enough to Implant a kiss on the
white brow. "Boor lamb!" she mur
mured. "Nobody's poor lost darling !"
The girl's eyelids flickered.
"Is that you, Lanny?" the girl mur
mured faintly.
"Yes, dearie. And you're all right,

"I'd never trust a cop that far," she
wailed. "Oh, Lanny, you've let him
make a sucker out of you." She began
to weep hysterically.
"if you don't stop that," Lanny prom
ised. "I'll bat you over the head with

"Dan McNamara's your friend."
"Yes, and chief of police, too. Lanny,
I'll die If they take me back. They'll

"Machine-gun fire, aT that," Dan Me
Namara supplemented, from the door

side of the bed and grinned down at
the terrified girl. "Don't you worry,
