Joy M/1R0LD /7acGff/l//y^iyfr _<Vt.r.jit 6V Oobbsneml/X?- .. -- SYNOPSIS OK PREVIOUS CHAPTERS Oourtland goes to a cafo, and while Indulging in reveries a young woman Heats herself at hls table. After dis cussing triviulties, he suddenly left her. Flora Desimoine. a beautiful and capricious singer, announces that she wishes to go to Capri, but her com panion demurs. Oourtland goes to her house and through the speaking tube demands the address of a young ■\voinan acquaintance. She finally tells him that the woman is to sing at the Austrian ambassador’s that night. He goes there and tries to bribe her chauffeur to let him ride home in her auto, but is threatened with arrest. He manages to secure entrance to her house, but is repulsed at the point of a revolver. He meets a friend and reads ol’ the disappearance of Eleonora da Bascana, then starts in search of her. believing that she has been kidnaped. It is learned that she has been imprisoned by mistake. (Continued from Yesterday.) The jailer concealed what annoy ance he felt. In his way he was just as capable an actor as she was. The accuracy of her description startled him. for the affair had been carried out so adroitly that he had been positive that until her real cup tor appeared she would be totally In the dark regarding Ids Identity. And here she had hit It off in less than a dozen words. Oh, well. It did not matter now. She might try to make it unpleasant for his employer, but lie doubted the ultimate success of her attempts. However, the matter was at an end so far as he was con I cerned. "Have you thought what this means? It is abduction. It is a crime you have committed, punisha ble by lung imprisonment.” "I have been mademoiselle's Jailer, not her abductor. And when one Is poor and in need of money!” He shrugged. '■[ will give you a thousand francs for the name and address of the man who instigated this outrage." Ah, he thought; then she wasn't so sure? “I told you the name, made moiselle. As for his address I dare not give it, not for ten thousand francs. Besides. I have said that thero has been a mistake." "For whom have I been mistaken?" "Who but Monsieur Ohampeaux's wife, mademoiselle, who is not in her right mind?” with inimitable sad ness. “Very well,” said Nora. “You say that 1 am free. That is all I want, freedom." "In twenty minutes the electric tram leaves for Paris. You will re call. mademoiselle,” humbly, "thut we have taken nothing belonging to you. You have your purse and hat and cloak. The struggle was most unfortunate; bu$, think, mademois elle, think; we thought you to be in sane!" "Permit tne to doubt that; and you are not afraid to let me go"" “Not in the least, mademoiselle. A mistake has been made, and in telling, you to go at once, we do our best to rectify this mistake. It is only five minutes to the tram. A carriage is at the door. Will mademoiselle be pleased to remember that we have! treated her with the utmost cour tesy ?" “I shall remember everything," ominously. ■ Very good, mademoiselle. You will be in Paris before nine.*’ With this he bowed and barked out of the room as though Nora had suddenly made a distinct ascension in the scale of importance. "Wait!" she calleft. His face appeared in the doorway again. "Do you know who T am?" “Since this morning, mademoiselle.” "That is all.” Free! Her veins tingled with strange exultation. He had lost his courage and had become afraid of the consequences. Free! Monsieur Champeaux indeed! Cowardice was a new development in his character. He had been afraid to come. She drank the tea, hut did not touch the toast or fruit. There would be time enough for breakfast when she ar- | rived iri Paris. Her hands trembled l violently as she pinned on her hat. I grid she was not greatly concerned | as to the angle. She snatched up her ! purse and cloak, and sped out into I the street. A phaeton awaited her. “The'tram,” she said. "Yes, Madamoiselle." “And go quickly." She would not I feel safe until she was in the tram. I A face appeared at one of the win clows. As tlie vehicle turned tne cor ner. the face vanished; and perhaps j that particular visage disappeared forever. A gray wig came off. the little gray side-whiskers, the bushy grey eyebrows, revealing a clever face, not more than thirty, cunning ; but humorously cunning and any- | thing but scoundrelly. The (tainted | sear aslant the nose was also ob- | literated. With haste the man thrust . the evidences of disguise into a irav- | ding-bag, ran here and there through j the rooms, all bare and unfurnished I save the one with the bars and the kitchen, which contained two cots and some cooking utensils. Nothing of importance had been left behind. Ho locked the door and ran all the way to the Place d’Armes, catching the' tram to Paris by a fraction of a. minute. All very well done. She would be in Paris before tile police made any definite move. The one thing that dis turbed him whh the thought of the blockhead chauffeur, who had got drunk before his reutrn from Ver sailles. If he talked; well, he could say nothing beyond the fact that he had deposited the singer at the house as directed. He knew positively noth The man laughed softly. A thou sand francs apiece for him and An toine. and no possible chance of being discovered. Ret the police find the house in Versailles; let them trace whatever paths they found; the agent would tell them, and honestly, that an aged man had rented the house for a month and had paid him in advance. What more could the agent say? Only one bit of puzzlement; why hadn’t the blond stranger appeared? Who was he. In truth, and what had been hts game? All this waiting and wondering, and i thf n a curt telegram of the night be fore, saying, “Release her.” So much the better. What his employer’s motives were did not interest him half ho much as the fact that he had I a thousand francs In his pocket, and i that all element of danger had been | done away with. True, the singer her i lielf would move heaven and earth to find out who had been back of the abduction. l,et her make her accu I sat lolls. He was out of it. He glanced toward the forward part of the tram. There she sat, star ing at the white road ahead. A young Frenchman sat near her, curling his mustache desperately. So beautiful and all alone! At length he spoke to her. She whirled upon him so sud denly that his hat fell off his head am rolled at the feet of the onlooker. ■Tmr / "Your hat, Monsieur?" he said, gravely, returning it. Nora laughed maliciously. The author of the abortive flirtation fled down to the body of the train. And now there was no one on top but Nora and her erstwhile Jailer, whom she did not recognize in the least. "Mademoiselle." said the greai policeman, soberly, “this is a grave accusation to make.’’ "I make it, nevertheless." replied Nora. She sat stiffly in her chair, her face colorless, dark circles under her eyes. She never looked toward Courtlandt. "But Monsieur Courtlandt has of fered an alibi such as we cannot Ignore. More than that, Ills In tegrity is vouched for by the gentle man at his side, whom doubtless Mademoiselle recognizes.” Nora eyed the great man doubt fully. “What is the gentleman to you?” | she was interrogated. "Absolutely nothing,’’ oontslmptu- ! ously. The minister inspected his rings. “He has annoyed me at various times,” continued Nora; "that is all. And his actions on Friday night war rant every suspicion I have enter tained against him.” Tlie chief of police turned toward the bandaged chauffeur. "Yrou recog nize the gentleman?" "No, Monsieur, J never saw him before. It was an old man who en gaged me." "Go on." “He said that Mademoiselle’s old teacher was very ill and asked for assistance. T left Mademoiselle at the house and drove away. I was Ihired from the garage. That Is the truth, Monsieur.” Nora smiled disbelief ingly. Doubt less he had been paid well for that lie. "And you?" asked the chief of Nora’s chauffeur. "He is certainly the gentleman, Monsieur, who attempted to bribe me." "That is true," said Courtlandt with utmost calmness. "Mademoiselle, if Monsieur Cort landt wished, he could accuse you of attempting to shoot him.” "It was an accident. Ills sudden appearance in my apartment fright ened me. Besides. I believe a woman who lives comparatively alone has a legal and moral right to protect her self from such unwarrantable intru sions. I wish him no physical in jury, hut I am determined to be an noyed by him no longer." The minister’s eyes sought Court landt's face obliquely. Strang young man, he thought. From the expres sion of his face he might have been a spectator rather than the person most vitally concerned in this little scene. And what a pair they made! "Monsieur Courtlandt, you will give me your word of honor not to annoy mademoiselle again?” “1 promise never to annoy her again." For the briefest moment the blazing blue eyes clashed with the calm brown ones. The latter were first to deviate from the line. It was not agreeable to look into a pair of eyes burning with the hate of one’s self. Perhaps this conflagration was intensifled by the placidity of his gaze. If only there had been some sign of anger, of con tempt, anything but this incredible tranquility against which she longed to cry out? She was too wrathful to notice the quickening throb of the veins on his temples. "Mademoiselle, I find no case against Monsieur t'ourtlandt, unless you wish to appear against him for his forcible, entrance to your apart ment.” Nora shook her head. The chief of police stroked his mustache to hide the fleeting smile. A peculiar case, the like of which had never be fore come under his scrutiny! "Cir cumstantial evidence, we know, points to him; but we have also an alibi which is Incontestable. We must look elsewhere for your abductors. Think; have you not some enemy? Is there no one who might wish you worry and inconvenience? Is there any Jealousy?" "No, none at all, monsieur,” quickly and decidedly. ”lu my opinion, then, the whole affair is a hoax, perpetrated to vex and annoy you. The old man who employed this chauffeur may not have been old. I have looked upon all sides of the affair, and it begins to look like a practical joke, mademoiselle." "Ah!" angrily. “And am I to have no redress? Think of the misery I have gone through, the suspenee! My voice is gone. I shall not be able to sing for months. Is it your sugges tion that 1 drop the investigation?" (To He Continued Tomorrow.) U A M a constant leader of your interesting columns, and see that someone has asked for a recipe for maple filling,” writes Mrs. U. W., of Arlington, "and am glad to send mine In response.

They are green now. but somewhat faded, and 1 would like to freshen them. Hoping to see an an swer soon, MRS. E. M. The wisest procedure would be to buy a package of reliable dye, and tiip the curtains according to direc tions. However, if the portieres were mine, I'd send them to a profes sional dyer. Don't you think they are rather clumsy for amateur dye big? Tf the dye is not applied evenly the portieres will be streaked and look unsightly. A Soiled White Plume Dear Miss Doon: 1 know you have helped others; will - on help me? I have a white ostrich jdiirne which Is soiled and would like M know how to clean it. Thanking you, WANDA T. Coll the feather so as to be able to get it in a quart jar. Fill the jar with gasoline and screw on the iover. Shake gently back and forth about a dozen times. Take out the feather, shake well and put Into an airy place to dispel the odor of gaso line. If the feather Is not clean enough after this, pour off the sediment and try again. This will not take the curl out of the feather. To curl draw the little strands over the edge of a blunt silver knife. Do not use gasoline near a tire or in a warm room. It is highly in flammable. Wine Stains on Silk Dear Miss Doon: If possible will you kindly tell me what will take a port wine stain out of a champagne colored bengaline silk dress? LiOUISB. Spread the stained portion over a bowl and pour boiling water through the spots from a kettle held high, so that the stream will strike with force. Her Bag Had a Kerosene Bath Dear Miss Dodn: T have a black leather bag lined with black goods, on which I spilled kerosene. The odor is terrible and I cannot use the bag until you tell me how to get rid of It. Also how can L stop biting my nails? 'Jiiey are very short and I cannot let them grow long. ELIZABETH M. Open the hag and expose it to the sun and air for a few days. The odor will probably disappear when the oil evaporates. The best way of breaking the habit of biting the nails is to stop biting them. You must learn \o control your nerves, instead of letting them control you. OH of bitter aloes, put upon the tips of the fingers, will serve as an unpleasant reminder of your resolu tion to conquer the habit.

Undesirables Dear Miss Doon: My little girl’s hair seems to be full of nits. 1 tried larkspur seed, but that did not seem to remove them. Other wise her scalp is clean and healthy. , Can vou possfbly give me a remedy. MRS. C. M. The tincture of larkspur seed has probably killed the life of the nits, and you will find that brushing the little girl’s hair regularly with a stiff v. brush will soon cause them to drop >, off. Brush the hair several times sf day. Combing with a fine comb will also help. To Scour a Table Dear Margery Doon; Will you kindly tell me how to scour a deal table that was varnished at one time, the varnish having partly worn oft? I would like to scrub it and then enamel it white. Don’t you think it would look well? It 1b a little bedroom table. Thanking you for what help you can give me, HOUSEWIFE When scouring, always scrub the way of the grain of the wood. Silver sand should be used with soap and will help make the deal a good color. The way to set to work is to first of all wash the table, then sprinkle the sand over It and scrub—using plenty of elbow-grease—with a stiff brush. Rinse with cold water, and wipe dry with a perfectly clean cloth. Some people use lemon Juice with the Hand, as It helps to remov* stains. From a Student Dear Miss Doon: I am a student at Seton Hall and ' have Wednesday evening and all day Thursday at my disposal. I therefor* ask if you can suggest any form of employment, such as tutoring, etc., which I might do during my spare time? Hoping to see my answer soon, 1 am, COLLEGE. If I were you I'd advertise. Write a straight-from-the-shoulder "ad,” stating exactly what you can do. It would also be a good idea to go among the “prep” boys and offer to give private lessons to the ones that need help. In this way you might be able to earn a fair amount. Don’t you think so? i What Becomes of Burnt Sticks If we put a piece of wood on a fire and watch what happens, we notice that in time there is nothing left but the ashes, although the wood, to be gin with, may have been as large as we could carry; so that it is quite obvious that what composed the wood in the first place has been destroyed or in some way quite changed. But if. instead of a piece of wood, we put on the fire a lump of stone, we shall watch in vain for it to disappear. Tt does not burn. So that some sub stances arc inflammable and others are not. The explanation is that materials A new and efficient sharpener for scissors and knives is being seen on the market. Two rotary wheels, so placed and fastened on the table that the knife blade may simply be placed between them, while the disks re volve, solve all the problems of ''dull ness" in knives and cost only twen ty-five cents. I ’ I Baked Beets Select beets of same size. Remove the greens and roots, wash and place on a baking pan in the oven. Bake until tender, then peel, slice and serve hot with butter. ----■ _i Entirely Renovated and Under A'ew Management New Beck’s Bakery 892 Broad Street Every Afternoon at 4 Hot Bread, Biscuits, Buns and Crullers. 58 Varieties of Cake and French Pastry. Coffee and Cheese Cakes a Specialty Pure foodstuffs, made In cleanly and sani tary kitchens that burn have the power of uniting with oxygen gas, and when they do this they become hot, and the chemi cal elements composing them split up into other gases and are given off as smoke or fumes, says the Children’s Magazine. All these find their way again into the body of plants, which breathe in these kind of things; and so nothing is lost, but the elements which we burned in the piece of wood in the first place are simply changed into other, forms of material. A Simple Sunday Salad Some jellied meat or salad, with bread and butter, is quite sufficient. If a salad is preferred as a piece de resistance in place of meat it may be a little heavier than the‘bit of green served at dinner. Nuts, fish, cheese or < eKg mixtures may be used in it. For variety’s sake the fruit and salad may be combined as in a Waldorf salad or in a banana salad with nuts. If one desires to simplify the menu still fur ther, buns or German coffee cake mav take the place of both the cake and the bread. Some people find chocolate too heavy a beverage, while others desire nothing for Sunday supper but chocolate with whipped cream and a sandwich with a bit of green—like mint, lettuce, nasturtium or water cress—in the filling.
