f FOURTH EPISODE.
Pur Little Runaway Bride! CHAPTER I. HANKS" M’GEE, currying one soiled newspaper for a K j| bluff and collecting money CmJ for the newsboys' home as another bluff, suddenly paused lu his absorbing attempt to whistle t! >ugh a broken tooth as he saw coming up the dingy side street toward the Hotel Daniel a beautiful young girl. She was turning to look back? ard over her sboolder at every few steps. Oh. gee! A man was following her! And he was dodging along from tree to tree and from doorway to doorway, and every time he saw the girl look back he ducked! The man had black whiskers, whittled down to a fine point Just under his chin, and ho carried himself with the ease which only a thorough scoundrel can acquire. Shanks McGee stood petrified then took a long, deep breath and hurried Gilbert Blye and Tammy. op to the corner. He Battened his al read; flat nose against the broad plate glass window of the modest Hotel Daniel. The beautiful young girl concealed all that she could of her timidity as she walked through the door with what she thought to be a strictly business Uke manner. Seven men who had been morbidly eying tbeir respei tive cuspidors Immediately straightened up and looked their handsomest. One of them looked bold, and another, a deco rative French man, looked debonair The beautiful girl strode straight up to the desk. , "A room with a bath, please.” she requested. The clerk, an indifferently aged man. held the" register a moment while he studied the new guest of the house. "Any luggage, miss?" The girl, disconcerted, had recourse to her only armor. Now she shyly cast up at him her great soft expressive eyes, and the clerk felt ashamed of himself. He swung the register around to her. ' “My maid will be here presently with my clothes.” The voice was soft nud sweet. "Certainly, miss.” And the clerk whanged a bell which sounded like a fire gong. "Front!” In response to that stentorian call a shock headed, loose limbed Irish boy Jumped forward and took the key to 4-1. The clerk, without moving his body or his neck or his head, craned for ward big eyes to watch the. signature, Mrs. 4. G. Day. • A moment later the black Vand.vked man strolled In, looked at the register and walked Into the bar. Then along came Marie with a bundle of clothes The young woman went straight to | the desk. "Mrs. Day’s maid?" the clerk ob served. Inspecting the clothing piece by piece from under his eyelids and ring ing foK frout and looking at the young woman and the register nil at the same time. The young woman, quite evi dently' a maid, glanced swiftly at the register, “Mrs. Day’s?" she repeated, breath ing heavily. "Y-yes!" "She’s expecting you.” And the •Jlerk'y eye'ids flickered. “Boom 44." "Marie, tell June 1 wont her!" cried a voice. "Bit,” she said, "I do not know you.” "Why—er"— Ned stammered; then he grabbed the clothes from the maid’s arms. "Now yon lead me to June!" "Blr. how dare you?" Marie said and turned appealingly to the clerk. "These are my wife’s clothes!” de clared the young man. ‘‘She’s bete. I want her!” ’’What’e her name?” the clerk de pended. “Mrs. Ned Warnerl” . ’’Not here.” "June Moore!" "Oh. come offl” observed the clerk. “If I let you go through the directory you may hit It Give this girl back her clothes, and good night!" ‘This thing baa gone far enough, Marie!" hotly stated tbe young man. At that moment his voice stopped. Out of the bar had strolled elegantly the pride of Shanks McGee, the man with the black Vandyke, and he was neatly nibbling a piece of cheese. He was acroee the lobby and going out of tbe door, paying but a scant tribute of curiosity to the knot In front of the desk, before tbe young man with tbe clothes aaw him. The young man nearly upset Marie on bla way to the door A porter stopped him to get June’s clothe*. Ned was then delayed at the ticket window and, glancing across the station, aw Blye gotaf uptova Juim Warner locked the door of i * rom fl, o inside and turn and the Ilt | and dropped into a chair to rest | Suddenly a voice called, “U'a Me-it.

Shanks McGee had felt strangely list less and forlorn these past few m>n ntes. for there was nothing Inside or out. Suddenly the three short, t lek detectives rounded the corner, and. gee, they were slinking! The world was once more a bright and happy place for Shanks. "Say, kid." busked the shortest and the thickest—lt was none other than Bill Wolf—“have you lumped a lengthy gink around here with whittled black chinchillas?" That observant young person ht ib.: world began at the beginning, but lie was so minute of detail that he had not .vet reached the middle when Kill Wolf, looking through the plate g as w'ndow' of the Hole) Daniel, said “Sh!" and drew his two assistant and. out of the range of poo" Shanks McGee's quivering cars, and the three astute boßnds of the law put their heads together In exeited confer ence.

"Get 'em out, Miko!” Quite a little crowd ht.d collected when suddenly a policeman appeared t orn around a corner a'id dispersed the mob. Including Uonorla. That vigorous lady had barely turned the corner, heading for the avenue, when a brilliantly lighted, luxurious limousine stopped lu front of the Ho tel Daniel. Shanks McGee's eyes be gan to stretch as he saw the occupants, and he whirled In a complete circle In h's efforts to locate without the loss of a second BUI Wolf ami Bllnky Deters and Sneaky Tavls. They were trudg ing up the street In single file, head* down, hands In po-kets. Even Bllnky Deters had lost Interest lu the star*. The smacking footsteps of Shanks Mc- Gee aroused them. "Gee!" exploded Shanks. "Crlpes! Gilbert Blye has doubled back wit an other swell Jane! Beat It to the Dan iel! And one of youse hotfoot It after the electric sho .. case and get the old woman! Gee!" Wolf turned a commanding eyo on Tavls. "Hit ’er up!” he ordered Sneaky drew a long.

BOR a moment June hesitated be fore the door of an employ ment agency next morning, and then she sharply boat 1 down her re'ocfanec. People who hi ve made up their minds to ho Independent and to earn their own way In life must have no timidity. She turned tho knob with sudden boldness and opened It; then she smiled at her ow n sensitive ness as she stood before a peasant faced woman. In the corner of wh >se eyes, however, there was a vel'etl sharpness which June did not are. A 'very pretty woman came In eb Juno turned to go away, and with her was a little girl of great lieauty. June hesitated as ahe heard the word "gov eroees.” The woman at the desk t 1 * j "Bravo! How do you Oof* smiled to June. The newcomer fol lowed that smile and herself smiled at June. The little girl hud been study ing June frankly out of round eyes. "I like you." she said, with startling candor: then the employment agency woman laughed, and pretty Mrs. Miles laughed. June dimpled. *T like you. too." ahe acknowledged. The employment agency woman rose. "Mrs. Murdock la lister) as a gov erness.” she observed, and June wine ed ot her new name, flow queer this all seemed! "Perhaps you wou.d like to have a little chat." Mrs. IV lb a and June Moore Wamor Justin Day Murdock *were bolt ag’ee able to that suggestion, partlcoto rl.v sinew little Dolly Wiles had appropri ated Jnne aiiparently for kec.-m. They sat In one of the cozy corners, and when June rose she was engaged Mrs. Wiles was a most appealing woman. All three were perfectly happy as they left the office and rode In Mrs. Wiles’ victoria op i’lfth avenue to one of those wide, clean streets whk to load off from Central park. A block and n half from the avenue they stopped before anew looking apartment house with an Impoa.ng en trance, aud a hungry looking dc j man bowed Uls tegular bow, aud a hungry looking elevator man shut them sky ward. A duplex apartment. June bed nor •c seen one before, and Ha utility was a puizle to her then, as It was for many a loog day afterward. After luncheon a nap for Drily, and Chen a romp In the park.

Jnne stropped on the skates and was timid and helpless nnd altogether charming until Do'ly had laughed hercclf wesk. then June suddenly ntraigbioned up and skated away like the expert that she was, whereat Dolly was more pleased than ever, and a vo.ee from the roadway, a suave aud pleasant voice, called: •‘Bravo."' Gilbert Blye! He was smiling. June was confused- She wbNked off the skates. “Ton set oi to have all the accoat pUshmentr went on Blye. stepping, down from bis ituurloo# UmotuUw. “Hetlo, younjj Judy!"

She dropped the I bend and ran f rward to the machine. I "What a lovely e; , sh.> exclaimed, j patting It on Its smooth, swelling side Just the kind mother wants, but dud dy says wc can't effort It." Blye laughed lightly. "Would you like a spin around the park In It." he | suggested, "yon and your playmate : here?" And he bowed Dolly, Jumping up and down, was al ready tugging at the door handle, nnd Blye. laughing. opened It for her. IH>l - gave a cry of positive joy as she saw the rich Interior, nnd she was among the soft cushions In an Instant. "Von haven't much choice," said the low voice of Blye. and he held the door open for Juno, "This once." Aud she looked him squarely In the eye. He smiled. June was thoughtful all through that delirious twenty minutes of riding. Blye—his dark fate haunted her. An other face earns to her—Ned! A great wave of homeatcknesH swept over her. They made their adieus rather linstl ly to Rive, for their time was a Utile more than up. Just before dinner was railed Mr Wiles came home, and June happened Into the library. It whs Dolly’s favor Ite storeroom for toys, books and every thing else. Mrs. Wiles—he called her Woozly—was sitting on the arm of her husband's chair, her arm around lil< neck and his chin In the palm of her hand. With the other hand she was twisting a look of his hair over an. I over her Unger, am) she was most dls tlnetly and obviously wheedling him for money! His voice was low snd protesting with ns much sternness ns a man ran use when he Is being charm ed Into docility. Woozly Wiles was locking the money In her little Inlaid desk when June next saw her. They were going out often dinner. There was some talk about ordering a car. and It needed but one word In give Ikilly a start. The luxurious llmon sine of tho black Vandykcd man was the whole of her text. She rattled on and on and on alsiut It, and as she talked tho pretty face ot Mrs. Wiles grew more and more distressed. "Harry, dear," she said, "Dolly and I want a limousine! Please!” Dolly clapped her hands. "After that limousine again," he gay ly commented. “Not now, Woozly. Business Is too bad." “1 don't like business," she laughed. "It’s a mean old thing, Isn't It. Dolly? Harry, please!" "Get thee trehlnd me. Woozly." The man still laughed, but he began to look very - seriously at his charming wife. "You’d get anything out of h man.’’ And bis laugh was half vexed, alto gather admiring. Pretty Mrs. Wiles accepted that com pllment prettily, but June, as she slip ped ont of the library unobserved, was hurt for the woman, for herself, for her kind, ns her face betrayed. Here It was again—the endless, almost un varying story of tbe woman dependent •n the man's bounty nnd. In this cane, getting all she could out of him. Ned nnd his detectives on that day were down In the neighborhood of 'h" Hotel Daniel scouring the district Inch by Inch, as It were, for some trace cf the runa way bride, and wherever they went a small. (Ist nosed hoy with on. soiled newspaper under bin arm sleuth ed after them, slinking from tree to tree end from doorway to doorway. Little Dolly Wiles awoke m the pile'., to become aware of a light In the lov er floor of Hie duplex apartment. Rad dy! He was at work in the library, a he always was Isle at night here re ceiitly. Dolly felt herself privileged to say good night to daddy, so she nlipiied ont and put on her bedroom slippers and her pretty little lounging robe an.: tripped downstairs June heard her go and dressed in like fashion. Harry Wile- bnl his books spread out before him nnd a pen be hind bis ear. "Daildy. are you going to get mother a limousine?” The man glanced over at his book* snd ran his hand h*toss his brow. "Well. I promised mother tonight." he admitted, with leluctancc, and bis face grew grave. "Goody!” The little girl clapped her bands "But will It be a nice big limousine?' "Not an extraordinarily big one. Just a proper rlzed limousine for little giris like you and mother. Oh. come In Woozly."' Mrs. Wiles In n stunning negligee stood In the library door. "You want Dolly, of course,” she said to June. "Shea a born prowler, I think," Dolly smacked her father a parting kiss. "Daddy says It won’t be a big llmon sine, mother, but It'll have silk tassels, and It will be a limousine anyhow May we have a red beaded chauffeur and a ehow dog?" "It depends on what color upholstery your mother select*." grinned her fa ther a* his pretty wife took Dolly's place on the arm of the chair. "There's only one kind of upholstery In the Beaver cars." laughed Mrs Wiles, pinching her husband’s cur "Really, Harry, I’ve been wonder.nr If It isn't a waste of monei to buy ss cheap a limousine as that. I'd rather wait until you can afford one that wtP be more substantial." "1 know your tricks." commented her husband. "Really. Woozly.

And Baker seated himself. “Wow’s the London branch?’’ asked Wiles by way of making conversation.
