Hacklcye shot Johnny a Rasp of ter
ror. "As you would not injure the gen
tlest soul that ever walked," he plead
ed, "try, never try to probe that mys
tery. For your own peace of mind
leave T,o .Malheureux alone."
"I spied on you last night," confess
ed Johnny, "I followed you Into that
closet there, where you have all those
images of your wife. I want to apolo
gize for doing It"
"You needn't," returned llackleye.
"Worship her loveliness any time you
wish, as I do always."
"Do you know Harcourt," abruptly
questioned the American.
"No, I've never met him," answered
llackleye. "I never knew who the man
was that had stolen my wife's heart
from me. C'erissc.- was clever and sic
covered her path well. I do know,
though, that towards the end she seem
ed to grow tired of him. Ha waxed
insanely jealous of her towards the
end. I think she was planning to leave
him at the last.
"Who do you think killed her?"
queried Johnny, "or do you know?"
"I did not lease that house at 9-1
Briarsweet place the one where the
passage way was found you know."
"Why, I Baw you, saw you go through
the passage way myself, the morning
after the murder," cried Johnny.
"Yes, I know you did," admitted
llackleye. "That was my second visit
there. I was in there the morning that
they found the body. I had followed
Le Malheureux there up through the
hole in the wall. Mrs. Desterle saw me
there when she burst In the door. Le
Jlauheureux and I had gone up to see
Cerlsse. Lo Malheureux had been there
before. He had traced her out and tol-l
me where she was. I went expecting
to find the living woman I found, deid
clay. When the policeman and Mrs.
Destcrle's husband were carrying her
back to her bedroom, I walked down
the stairs and away from the house.
When I reached my lodgings, where I
was stopping under an assumed name.
I discovered I had lost one of my gar
ters. I went back that night and forc
ed an entrance to the Flanders house,
and climbed back into tho bedroom
through the hole in the wall. I looked
for tho garter but couldn't find It. I
wanted it for sentiment's sake, and lot
because I was afraid of any Incrimina
tion that might result from it, as for
years I have been practically unknown
in civilized countries. And," with a
whimsical smile, "I was frightened
away, and in my haste to leave the
Flanders house, I lose the mate to it
out of my pocket."
"And I found it right by the door to
the houso that Hamley Hackloye was
supposed to have leased," said John
ny. "Was lh-5 Man-Aperilla In the
room when you and Le Malheureux
were?" came Johnny's final question.
"I know of no such animal," said
Hackleye. "And now, Mr. Johnson, I

'What reason had he for surrepti
tiously following his sister. Was he
afraid you would kill her?"
"I do not know as to that. I thinl.
his object was to try and persuade her
to return home to her children."
Mrs. Dr. Fothergill then testified.
' The morning after I had examined
Mrs. Harcourt at the hospital and
not' d what seemed to me to be Indica
tions of this particular form of loco
poisoning, I obtained permission to
visit the room formerly occupied by
Mrs. Wayne. It was practically un
touched, and a glass stood on the wash
stand. I took It away with me, giving
the police due notification that I had
done so, and wdien at home rinsed It
thoroughly with water arid a slight
percentage of alcohol, as his latter
solvent has a marked alllnity for loco
in any form. The analysis of this solu
tion showed it to be highly charged
with pow dered loco root. On mere wom
an's intuition and my own initiative, I
sought further. T'ndoubtedly the loco
root was dropped Into the glass of
water and later Mrs. Wayne either wit
tingly or unwittingly drank it."
"Will you tell the court your diagno
sis of the ailment of .Mrs. Harcourt."
A bad case of poisoning from the
male loco blossoms. Her present state
of health is attributable only to tho
rigorous treatment of morphine an-1
female, loco blossoms which she was
subjected. The powders In evidence
were dispensed to her daily hy her
husband, so she claims, in fact employ
es at the notel saw mm give them to
her more than once. They are tho
concentrated essence of the male bios
.-im of this noxious plant. I should say
hat she had been kept under the influ
ence of this drug about live years.
Those two parchment hags filled with
white powder there, contain more of
the same drug. They were discovered
in Mr. Harcourt's luggage."
"And your opinion then is?"
".My opinion is," Blowly stated Dr.
Fothergill. "and I deduce It from scien
tific facts and analyses, that Harold
Harcourt not only kept his wife under
the influence of loco for years, but that
he employes this pestilential product
as a means to kill Nirclswe Wayne
Tho second morning after the critical
day when Dr. Fothergill had made her
startling statements about the loco root
found the case at a standstill. Each
side was waiting for the other, and for
a half hour after court had opened
there was nothing doing save a pother
among the attorneys.
"Your honor," it spoke, "I am Fran
cis Wayne, the brother of the dead
woman whose dsath you are trying to
proho." '
"Le Malheur ux!" exclaimed John
son and Larry Morris In a breath. Tho
figure bowed to them and turned again
to the judge.
"If your honcr please," said Le Mal
heureux, "with all apologies for my
(rallies and for myaHf, I would Ilk

selfish and overbearing. Cerlsse would
have been hated by all around tho cas'

was barely two yearn old when a young
captain in the French army, Raoul de
L'Knclose, Btatloned In camp a few
rods from our demesne, met my Aunt
Marie. They fell violently in love wi'Ji
each other, and despite my father's op
position were married hy the old
French Cure who had accompanied the
party on its migration into the African
wilderness. Father was wild with an

my aunt and her husband the house,
and returned to my Aunt Marie her
half of the Joint fortune that she and
her sister had brought with them to
Africa, only because he feared that
Capt. de L'Enclos might Invoke an In

Sleep mill the Brain.
When the brain is at work marshal
ing ideas, producing mental pictures,
and calling into action stored-up mem
ories and impressions, tho cells of its
mysteriously potent "gray matter" un
dergo a change of form. Cavities are
formed in them, which, as the brain
becomes wearied by long-continued ac
tion, fill with a watery fluid. Part of
the siibslance of the cells appear to
have been consumed in the process of
thinking, but in the hours of sleep
the exhausted cells regain their orig
inal form, the supply of recuperative
material coming from the blood, and
on awakening, the mind finds its in
strument restored and prepared again
for action.

model is shown here, a braided tunic
of the linen dropping over a plaited

deep yoke of pin tucked pink batiste.
The sleeves are of the tucked batiste,
straps of the linen extending down
the length of the arm. On these

pattern are worked coin dots with
pink linen floss. The hat Is a Gage

IV Omen' Clot llilitf.
Dr. Haig Ferguson in a lecture at
the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary tic
other day had settle severe things to
-ay about the clothing of an adult
woman. It was hampered hy fashion
and superstition and nothing could he
a greater tribute to the strong nerves
and powerful muscles of women than
the fact that their health had survived
for centuries their habits of cloth
ing. A woman's clothing was the despair
(;f the hygienist. Children and girls
were more sensibly clad, but when
girls grew up they were often clothed
in a way which made them unable- tj
walk, run or breathe. Weighty skirts,
low-necked ' gowns, "pneumonia
blouses," the modern hat, the high
lieeled shoe with its pointed toe, were
all condemned. Rut, then, women will
have it so and so it will remain.

of j lly to half a gallon ol water i-;
usually sufficient, but, hard water may
require more. Put the corsets in:
the suds and allow thcni to soak fur
live minutes. Then spread them on ;t
hoard and brush thoroughly with a
well soaped nail brush, dipping the'ii
occasionally into the suds to remove
the loosened dirt. When clean, rinse
through two lots of warm water and
hang up to drip dry. When almost
dry, iron on the inside with a warm

place the front steels and sew them
linnly in. If this is carefully done,
tlic corsets will emerge from the wash

Summer Sleeve SuwestloiiH.
Very few sleeves now are all in one
piece. An over and undersleeve are
used in almost every case. The first
sketch shows a foulard silk sleeve
with deep cuff over an undersleeve of
dotted net. The second sketch is a
lingerie effect in white batiste, strap
ped with lace insertion. No. 3 shows
the "peasant" or seamless shoulder,
an extension of the bodice forming the
sleeve, which falls over an undersleeve
of heavy lace. Nos. 4 and .1 show
sleeves taken from two mohair frocks,
one a tailored street gown and the
other a little white mohair house
dress. The last sfceteh is a ponge
sleeve trimmed with oriental embroid
ery and mounted over an undersleeve
of cream tucked batiste.

It well before using. Use cold water
to finish and dry with a linen cloth.
