"1 SYNOPSIS.
Professor Crosby, who wishes to take a
^ . train from New York to Boston, whence
he Is going abroad, is delayed at the. Grand
Central Station. He sees front a window
fof n Pullman rar Miss Margaret Tabor,
whom he had met the preceding Christmas
at n house party. Miss Tabor Is on her
way home to Stamford, Conn. Crosby,
lining charmed by her beauty, suddenly
r ‘ decides to go there also. They arrive at
j Stamford; take a trolley car. The rar
! runs off the track and they are delayed
I In reaching home.
Crosby and Margaret, or "Lady" Tabor,
Ias sho is called, arrive at the Tabor
home so late that Crosby Is asked to stay
the night. In the middle of the night he
Is aroused by strange noises and Is as
tonished nt being asked by Mr. Tabor to
leave the house Immediately.
(Continued From YentrrUny.)
This was too much. "What do you
-moan?” I said. "There’s nothing the
matter with my past. I've nothing
whatever to be ashamed of and this
is the first time in my life I’ve been
i accused of any such thing. My unl
! versity position is proof enough of that.
It’s a mistake or un Infernal slander."
He looked me straight in the eye.
. “I know more about you. Mr. Crosby.
| than you were prepared for," he said
i quietly. "Don't waste time in postur
“ ! lng.”
"I beg your pardon," I retorted;
“you know nothing about me, but
you’ve said decidedly more than ono
gentleman can say to another without
explaining himself. We've two men to
gether. Be so good as to tell mp Just
what you charge me with."
I hud risen front my chair, struggling
hard for enough self-control to make
my words carry conviction. Mr. Tabor
eat unmoved while lie deliberately
^ lighted a cigar, watching me over the
end of it.
"I have no desire to dig over your
life with you." he said, "any more than
I have to continue your acquaintance.
I came here to tell you why our invita
tion to you was withdrawn. Well, I've
done so; you have an evil reputation.
That’s all."
"Excuse me, but that isn't all. It
lsn’ true, and——”
“There is just one more point,” he
went on; "when you arrived, of course
none of us realized who you were or
how you had come. Eater, when we
understood the facts, you would not,
under ordinary circumstances, have left
until this morning. But Mrs. Tabor
was so much excited over the mat
ter that I saw lit to relieve her imme
diately at the cost of disturbing your
sleep. I owe you an apology for that,
and for that only."
"Look.here. Mr. Tabor." said I, more
calmly, “I don't Know what you have
been told about me. but if It’s dishon
orable, it's a damned lie. Now, I’ll
wait here while you make any inquiries
you like. I'll put you in communica
tion with anybody you choose. And
(when you've looked me up and are
satisfied, I shall expect a very complete
apology for this whole matter.”
“Thank you," he answered, "I am
quite satisfied with my present infor
mation. 1 have no further curiosity.
' And now, perhaps, I have taken
enough of your time." He rose.
Then I lost my temper. "That's alto
gether too thin!” I cried. “I’m received
as your guest, and then I’m locked into
my room. I'm sent away in the mid
dle of the night and told not to ask
why. You explain it on the absurd
ground that I’m a disreputable charac
ter, and then you won't either specify
your charges or investigate them. I
believe you are making up the whole
Gtory to cover something in your own
house; and if you were a younger man
I'd have it out of you."
While I was speaking he had turned
composedly to pick up his hat and
stick. He faced me now without a
quiver of the eyes.
“Don't bluster, Mr. Crosby,” he said
slowly, uncovering the tip of one yel
low tooth in the faintest suspicion of a
smile,“it isn't any real use. Well, I
■won’t offer to shake hands, but I'll wish
you a pleasant summer after you've
forgotten this row? Shall I go first?
If there was anything more to say, I
was too angry to think of It. “After
you," t said through shut jaws. "Good
morning."
I followed him down to the veranda,
where wc went through a comedy of
leave-taking for the benefit of the peo
ple in the wicker chairs. At the corner
of the building, discreet swinging doors
gave entrance to the liar, and as Mr. j
Tabor started down the drive there
came from within a stream of savage j
gutturals and the squeak and clatter of ;
an overtilted chair. A stocky fellow in
a flannel shirt lurched through the
swinging doors and followed him at a
clumsy run, cursing in a tangle of
English and Italian so rapid and
furious that by the ear alone
I should have thought half a
dozen people were involved. It had
the multiplied brilliancy of a vir
tuoso’s piano playing. Of the dispute
which followed the words were Indis
tinguishable: but there was no ques
tion that each was threatening the
other. The Italian danced and raved
and gesticulated, while Mr. Tabor
pointed a steady forefinger and re
torted in low and frosty monosylla
bles. And presently the foreigner
slouched back into the bar, which im
mediately filled with babbling by
standers I followed to find him stand
ing physically with his foot upon the
low rail and metaphorically with his
hack against the wall. He was the
same man that had pursued our trol

ley car on the day previous; a me
dium-sized, stocky, leather-colored ras
cal in a shiny black suit and blue
flannel shirt, with a blue fur upon
his face and blue tattoo-marks on his
hairy hands.
Public opinion, led by the bartender,
was against him to the point of throw
ing him put or sending for the police,
and his attempts at a defense were
rendered unintelligible by volubility
and by the strangest mixture of lan
guages I ever heard in my life. Im
agine a slightly drunk and thorough
ly excited Neapolitan speaking broken
English with an Irish brogue, and
you may have some faint impression
of the effect. His muddy blur of in
tonations was impossible to follow, and
I tried him in Italian, becoming there
by a person of authority and inter
est. He understood me readily enough,
but his own spattering patois gave lue
a good deal of trouble. By what I
could make out lie was a sailor, for
i merly on ships owned by Mr. Tabor,
and Mr. Tabor had discharged him
and had kidnapped Ills wife. This
sounded puzzling enough; but 1 could
get nothing else out of him, and my
further questions brought forth only
angry reiterations and indefinite vows
to have justice at any price. Finally
I persuaded the bartender to give him
one more drink on condition that he
went away immediately, and satisfied
the crow'd with some patched-up story
of a hated employer whoso resem -
blance to Mr. Tabor had caused an
unfortunate mistake.
CHAPTER V.
Reside the Summer Sea: An Interlude.
IF T had been at my wits’ end before, i
I was now beyond it, in such a j
chaos of puzzled anger that T i
could not even think reasonably, much |
less come to sensible conclusions. The
Italian sailor with ills impossible!
charge against Mr. Tabor's own lin ,
possible charge against me, were new
elements which might or might not 1
work into the situation: but at least 1
could not place them now: nor, for
want of a motive that would bear dis
section was I ready to confess my own
desire to stay on the ground until 1
had seen the matter through. I would
go away to the sanity of the seaside,
and give the vexations of the last few
days time to clear. The whole ex
perience had been so strange that I
must have more perspective through
which to view it clearly; and 1 could
see nothing to gain by haste. For all
that, 1 was perfectly clear that at j
length everything must come out right.
Xot that I could define to myself ex
actly what "coming out right" would
mean, except making Mr. Tabor admit
himself outrageously mistaken, and his
daughter—but It was better not to
think about bis daughter; unless 1 j
was ready to risk thinking too much :
about her. The very memory of her
vivid face in the car window, or her '
quizzical Impertinences on the way, the !
sight of her lying motionless in the un- |
natural meadow, and most poignant of
all, her distress and shrouded beauty
in the dim hall, lit up the last few .
hours as with the glamour of a dream ;
broken suddenly by a nightmare mon- |
strous and unconvincing. She must be

For a couple of miles my car
traveled through open country; then
with the Sound on Its left, passed
through small wooded patches that
gave way continually to open glades
where lawns from little cottages and
great ran down to the water's edge.
My destined hostelry, I remembered,
nourished under the original name of
Bellevue. I did not especially plno
for It, with its green-lined mat
ting. white enameled furniture and
chattering piazza; but it had
the unquestionable advantage of being
only a couple of hundred yards from
the' Ainslles’s cottage. There I hurried
into my flannels and set forth in search
of Bob, whom I found playing the gen
tle game of croquet with himself, the
pink ball against the green. When he
saw me, he gave a vikng whoop that
brought Mrs. Alnslie from her chair up
on the veranda, while he executed a
solemn wur-dance around me.
"Where, O where, are the Hebrew
children?” he chanted, "Safe now in
the promised land—where’s your hag?”
"With how do you do, Mr. Crosby?
said Mrs. Ainslle. "Bob. what on earth
will the neighbors think of you? And
Mr. Crosby will hardly like being called
a Hebrew—not that I have anything
against the Hebrews. They are really
a very fine people, but-"
“But, my dear, you are talking non
sense. Laurie, where is that bag?” Or
Heaven grant it be a trunk."
“It's a bag," I said, “and I left it In
my room at the Bellevue and a very
good room it is."
"Bellefiddleslicks," Bob snorted.
“You go back to that whited caravan
sary and wrest away your belongings
and come over here. We are going to
house-party in a couple of days, and
we need you in our business. Your
room is now southeast corner second
floor, beautiful view of the sound or
within sound of the view—whichever
you pleace."
“You are an idiot, but T love you,"
said I. “Nevertheless, I’m going to
stay where I am. Can't be bothered
with house parties. I came down here
for some exercise ”
“I think you look tired,” Mrs. Ainslle
put In thoughtfully.
“He looks sulky to me," said Bob.
“All right, stay where you are until you
feel the need of a decent bed. Bet I
can beat you at croquet and give you
two wickets ”
“You are a fattening, indolent per
son.” I said. "What I want, and what
you stand in crying need of, is exer
cise,” and I dragged him off to the ho
tel tennis courts.

The finest of French cambric is used
in the construction of the lingerie this
season. Yu I lace is used in great pro
fusion. On the nightgown and com

This applique is put on over the inser

the same idea when

ago today. Then the charm failed. A
little thing like a bit of a boy threat
ened to stop the suffragist chain. Mrs. !
de Forest decided to correct the appa- i
rent mistake of nature; she set about I
to make a suffragist of the boy. Papa |

To Properly Treat
Obstinate Wrinkles
''Particularly where wrinkles and
furrows are long and deep, the mas
sage devotee Is apt to rub too hard
and too frequently," saya Dr. Limo
ges. "Such treatment loosens the
skin, causes muscles to sag and ag
gravates the wrinkled condition—Just
the opposite result from what she
seeks.
"Better than massage, or anything
else, for the most obstinate wrinkles
and crows’ feet, as well as the finest
lines, Is a formula well known In
France, which American ladles may
readily avail themselves of, as you
will have no difficulty procuring the
constituents from your druggists. It
is this: lino ounce powdered saxollte
In one-half pint wlteh hazel. Bathe
the face, neck and hands In this dally.
The effect is really marvelous, not
only as to wrinkles, but also In case

A Maid of Honor’s Gown.
Dear Miss Doon:
Will you kindly tell me In the Evening
STAR what T should wear as maid of
honor at a home wedding? Tic bride ip
going to wear white satin. Thanking you
lu advance, 1 remain,
A STAR READER
It is very effective to carry out the
color scheme of the wedding in the
gowns of tho bridal attendants. If the
color scheme is pink and the brides
maids wear pink gowns, you might
have pink veiled in white, chiffon or
marquisette. The same thing holds for
any color. If palms and ami lax form
tho only decorations you will have n
wide choice. A white gown is always
In good taste and it can ho trimmed
with a color. However, I think the
contrast of the delicate shades of pink,
blue, yellow, green and violet to the
pure white of the bride's gown is pret
tier and more effective. Above all
things, maid of honor, don’t wear a
color that is unbecoming.
Gift for Baby.
Dear Madam:
What is an appropriate gift to give to
a newborn baby? Are small fancy lace
handkerchiefs ever worn as a bib when
taking the baby out? Thanking you in
advance for your advice, I remain,
L. A. P.
A baby record is an appropriate gift,
hut the trouble is that other friends
will probably think of the same
tiling, and baby has no use for
more than one. A baby spoon,
set of baby pins, a pillow, a car
riage cover, a dainty little cap,
jacket, kimono or bib, a pretty pair of
worsted or leather hoots, a toilet set,
including comb, brush and powder
puff, a safety pin-holder of ribbon with
four or five rings, to which are at
tached pins of various sizes, all form
acceptable remembrances. Yes, dainty
bibs can be made from fancy handke: -
chiefs. Fold the handkerchief in the
form of a triangle. Cut out the base
to fit the baby’s neck and finish it off.
Sew a .silk dress shield under the hand
kerchief.
A Decorative Scheme.
Dear Miss Doon:
We are going to give a surprise party
for my older sister, and ask your advice
as to decorating the rooms. Our dining
room leads into tbe parlor, separated only
l»y two large columns. The dining room
has a dark green wall, while the parlor
has a dark red one. with a white moire
ceiling. We would like to have the rooms
decorated with crepe paper and ask your
advice as to how and what colors or color
to use. Hoping to see my answer in the
| Evening STAR, I remain, EDITH B.
I think the prettiest way will ’ e to
reverse the colors, trimming the din
ing room with red, the shade of the
parlor walls, and the parlor with green,
the shade of the dining room walls,
rut the crepe, paper in strips and fes
toon it from the sides of the chande
liers to the walls. Put red-shaded
candles on the table, and for a centre
piece cover a large dish with the red
crepe paper and fill it with fruit. Small
| red paper roses filled with nuts and
having tho place cards Attached will
complete the table decorations In a
very effective way. Your own good
tasto will prevent you from overdee
oraiing.
“At Home” Etiquette.
Dear Miss Doon:
WiU yon kindly publish through ycfOT
columnH if "at home" cards need an an
swer and how to conduct yourself wnlle
there? In answerin', my questions you
will greatly oblige. INQUIRER.
No, "at home" curds do not require
an answer. The hostess is merely
notifying her friends that she will be
at home to receive them on a certain
afternoon and is not obliged to fill any
vacant places in case of absence of
any of those Invited. If you are not s.
able to call send your visiting card ej
that It will be received by the hoateo*
on her "at home" day. This la ftu
acknowledgment of her courtesy in
sending you an Invitation. The con
ventional length of a call Is from
twenty minutes to a half-hour. Leave
nil heavy outer wraps in the dressing
room immediately upon entering the ■*,'
house. Keep on the hat and gloves,
and, if the reception gown includes a
Jacket, this, and the furs may also be
retained. Greet the hostess and the ,.
others In the receiving line and then
move away to give place to other ar
rivals. You will doubtless find friend*
among the guests to whom you may
talk. There will probably be assist
ants to show you to the dining-room, or
the hostess will say, "Won’t you go to
the dining-room for refreshments?” In
the latter case you will go in alono or
tvith friends, and not wait for any
one to be delegated to show you the
way. It is customary to take leave of
the hostess unless she is engaged in re
ceiving guests, and if it is the first
visit at her house it is obligatory to
wait until she is disengaged so that '
you may express to her your pleasure
at being present. Before leaving the
house put your calling card on the card
tray. This is d custom which should
not be neglected. In receiving so many
people the hostess is apt to forget who ,
called, and as your card does not come
through the mail she may think that
you have simply ignored her invitation, •
A Question of Color. ,
I Pear Miss Doon:
I am a girl Hi years of age and am vevy 1 r
dark, so would like to have your advice
in Inlying dress goods. What color will l
select? Would old rose he nice? I have
! dark eyes, dark hair and dark skin. I *
! never wore old rose before. I always wore
| blue In all shades. I am a reader of the
! Evening STAR and would like to see yoor y
answer soon. By helping me you will
oblige. * it M. F. F. ■ $
Yes, 1 think old rose wifi be becom- - •,
i lug. provided you select a clear shade,
and not one that has a suggestion of *
a lavender tinge. The latter shade it *
very trying to a person with dark skin.
A rich shade of red or garnet would
add color to your cheeks, and combined
1 with red satin or velvet would make a
youthful frock. Black Is also a pretty.
trimming for red, provided the upper
part of the waist is made of the red
material, for black near the face is
apt to make a dark person look sallow.
Did you ever wear brown? It is a safe
rule to match the eyes In choosing a,
dress, and IT your skin is clear, browni
should be. becoming. If, however, the -
skin is sallow, It must be lightened by
one of the bright shades, such as red. -
