Her ton was cold, hard, forced, though she tried to make It sound nat ural. It was h who broke open your Ifitsk," I cried. "He wanted to regain possession of that scrap of paper and thus remove all evidence of his guilt." "I am afraid," said Louise with the manner of offended dignity, "that you re entirely mistaken. I was not aware that you knew Mr. Crandall by teht" "If that wasn't. Hugh Crandall who same out of your house Just now, who fwas it?" I asked, my anger at this fata whom I believed responsible for Ithe chain of evil getting the better pf m. "I don't know Crandall, but I pnow the evil he Is responsible for, (Tor the tragedy of your sister, the Slight of your father, the suicide of Id Andrew Elser, the suicide of that poor woman out in Ardway. Why, not Ian hour ago I helped drag from the bark lake a fifth victim, a poor young fclrl, driven to death by another of his accursed yellow letters. I found the Fragments of it, water-soaked and Illeg ible, In the lake." "Mr. Kent," Interrupted Louise, "you prere kind enough to undertake a mis sion on my behalf and I appreciate It greatly. Certain circumstances have krieen that have entirely altered mat jbera. I called you up last night and asked you to drop all Investigations. lYou have said that you love me. By that love you say you hold for me I fcow ask you, no more I order you to make no further attempts to solve the mystery please, Harding, please." Her voice broke, and with one last gesture of appeal she flung herself Into a chair and covered her face with her hands. Perplexed beyond measure with the turn affairs had taken, with my heart aching with sympathy for her, I stood watching her slender form as It shook With sobB, trying to make up my mind What to do. My heart bade me prom ts ber anything, everything if it would bring her peace of mind, yet taj brain told me that It was best for ber, best for every one, if I should go ahead as my friend, the Inspector, bad advised. "Louise, I began, trying to keep my voice steady, "if you will answer tn one question " "Don't, Harding, please don't," she ebbed, lifting her tear-stained face to me In entreaty. "You mustn't. You mustn't ask me any questions. If you love me, please do just as I say." "Louise," I replied almost sternly, "you are not yourself. Can't you rely on met Can't you trust me? Don't rou know that I will do nothing that Is not for the best?" I gathered her into my arms and beld ber close. I pressed my lips gainst her fragrant hair where It trayed from under her automobile bonnet As she lay unresisting in my arms her sobs decreased and she be came calmer. "My darling," I said, "I know that Pugh Crandall has been here. I feel that he has been Influencing you against me. Won't you do what your beart bids you and tell me every thing about ltf" She drew a long deep breath and gently freed herself from my enclr- allng arms and, facing me, looked at to with firm resolution written all over her lovely face. "You must do what I tell you. oan answer no questions. I wish eould, but I cant. You mustn't ask to. It Isn't my secret." "The car is waiting, Miss Louise." As the maid's voice Interrupted she gave a start, and reaching her hands out Impulsively to me, In more like ber own dear voice, said to me "Harding. I must go. Please trust me, and please, please, do what I ask of you. Good-by." She broke from my encircling hands and ran to the front door. By the time I reached it after her he was already in the car. I tried to catch the direction she whispered to the chauffeur but could not. Before I could collect my thoughts the great sixty horsepower machine had van tshed around the corner. Where was she going! It seemed to me that every hour added to the chain of mysteries in which I tad become involved. I was convinced Johnston that In some war Louisa, too. had been ensnared by the master of crime who bad plotted all this evil, but bow, I could not Imagine, Yet more and more, it seemed to me, all clues point ed to Hugh Crandall. What could have been Louise's motive la denying to me that he had teen in the house! She must have known It. I began to wish that I had taken Davis' advice and remained in Ard way. IVrhaps by t'.Js time I would have had some definite clue. I re solved to go bark there at once. The Inspector seemed to think that that was the most fruitful field for investi gation, and probably he was light. Hailing a taxi, I bade him drive me to the ferry, but to my great annoy ance reached it Just two minuies too lato to make a train. Too dispirited to do anything else, I entered the wait ing ferryboat, and, sinking into a seat In the corner, gave myself up to bitter reflection on my failure to solve the problem I had set myself. The more I thought about it the more firmly I became convinced that It was wise to disregard Louise's request. My love for her, my duty to her, demanded that I go on. So absorbed was I In my reflections that I did not notice that the boat had reached Its slip, and I was almost the last to leave it. Just aa I stepped off the gang-plank a huge machine shot by me, giving me barely time to catch a look at the occupants, but In that fleeting glimpse I recognized them both. It was Lou I Be with Hugh Crandall. CHAPTER XI. More Discoveries. The worse the Injury the less It hurts at the moment. I once saw a man with both legs cut off laughing and Joking with the men who pulled him from under a car. Though he died in ten minutes, I doubt If he suf fered half aa much as if he had bumped his hend or bad run a splinter under his thumb-nail. It Is when you "I Saw Hugh Crandall Leaving are mortally hurt and live that the pain becomes so terrible. In the few minutes I had had with Louise I had not realized the depth of the wound In my heart her conduct toward me had made. Even when I saw her dash away from me in an au tomobile, pained though I was that our interview should have been cut short, I still did not comprehend what a ter rible blow it was thftt had befallen me. It was the sight as I left the ferry of the automobile dashing by, with Louise the woman I loved seated beside Hugh Crandall, that gave new poignancy to my pain, that added to the fires of Jealousy, that made me understand to the full the dire Import of what had happened. Louise had lied to me. Cramdall had been In the house. She had seen him. She had left me to Join him. She had even deserted her helpless sister and her dying father to go with him. And all the while her Hps had protested that no one bad been In the bouse but the doctors and nurses. As I paced the platform and paced It back again, waiting two weary hours for an Ardway train, as I sat for two unending hours more in the long tide through New Jersey, like a poisoned knife, cutting my heart to shreds and cutting the shreds again, the thought kept coming back to me over and over: "She lied to me." Qmrtr a man alive, pour mol'en j metal Into his eyeballs, feed blm rait flub and cut off water, bury Urn alive In quicklime, devise what torture you will nd double It, the pain and agony can not equal that which contra to a man who, believing In and trusting and loving a woman with his whole heart, is forced to admit to himself that she bos deceived him (hat she has lied to Mm. In those awful hours I came to know the seven hells. I went through all of them. Only one ray of comfort came to me. As I bad asked myself "Why did she lie?" I found myself believing that she had done so, not of her own free will, but Impelled by some motive so powerful that she could not resist it. That it was the Influence of Crandall I could no doubt. He had so preyed on ber fears for her father and sister, perhaps on ber fear for me, that be had Induced her to try to persuade me to give up my investigation and had made ber promise to accompany him on some doubtful secret mission. "It is not my secret." I recslled the piteous cry my en treaties had wrung from her lips, and found the logical explanation of it In her having been terrorized by that villain, Crandall. If I could have found him at the moment I could have killed him with my naked hands. Yet even though I was convinced that Louise had lied to me, I began to feel that whatever she had done, what ever she was now doing, was In the belief that she was acting tor the best tm her dear ones, for me. My duty to her, my duty to myself, I reasoned,, demanded that I do my utmost to solve the hideous mystery aid free her from the fear that I was sure was responsible for ber strange actions. I swung off the train at Ard way and hastened to the hotel, eager to tell Davis what I had learned about th movements of Hugh Crandall, but Davis was not there. All that I could learn was that be had hired a horse and buggy early In the morning and had driven off in the direction taken by Crandall the day before. "If be Is following Crandall's trail," said I to myself, "he Is Just a day too late." So long as Davis was not about I decided I might as well see If the miss ing postmaster had been found. As I walked up the street I could not help thinking bow dumfounded Davis would be when he returned from his fruit less chase for Crandall xnd listened to my tale of Crandall's aalons. While be bad advised against my return to the city, he would have to admit that It had not been without result. As I entered the post-office I found that Miss Cox was still in charge. Approaching the letter window, I bade her good afternoon and asked If there was any news of the missing postmas ter. It was late in the afternoon and the last mall fur the day having been This House Not Ten Minutes Ago." distributed, she sat crocheting. She motioned to me to come around to the rear door. "How about It?" I asked as I en tered the office, "haa anything been heard of Rouser?" She shook her head. 0 Tact Better Than Command Good Idea to Lot "Less Criticism and More Comradeship" Be Your Guiding Motto. "Less criticism and more comrade ship," would be a helpful maxim for all homes. It is easy enough to be pleasant to the casual acquaintance, but the great difficulty lies in being decent to those who are devoted to us to those who are ever willing to forgive our short comings. There is no duty above treat ing your friends courteously and try ing to Illuminate the general monot ony of the lives of those you love. In home life tact will succeed often where command will fall. Sugges tions will go farther than argument Direction is so much better than dic tation. Criticism of loved ones Is a vice that takes possession of one like a stimulant, or a drug, once It Is en couraged. It may begin in our so- 'That's about the elgh'ynlnlh (Tme I've answered that question to-day. Seems like the whole town was la here wanting to kt!Ow." "Has the post-office Inspector been her?" "He wns In here this morning and maue Just the routine examination. He didn't ask no questions, though I un derstand he has been sleuthing sround up to Widow Smith's, where Charlie Rouser boards. If he's looking for anything wrong with Charlie's ac counts It's my private opinion that he ain't going to find It I've been all over the books twice today and there ain't anything out of the way." "Have you any Idea where all thai "if Is- mm lip Has Anything Been Rouser?" Heard of money came from that we found be hind the cash-drawer!" "No, and I don't see that It's any of my affair. His books is right end bis stamps and his stamped envelopes Is atf accounted for. Maybe he made it In Wall street, or maybe somebody left It there with him for safekeep ing." As I recalled Davis' parting In it ruc tions to me when I had first come out to Ardway, I was more and more surprised that he had not lnvestigat d further at the post-office. He had seemed to think that the clue to the whole mystery would be found there, and he had particularly charged me to find out to whom Lock Box No. 17 had been rented. I decided to uk Miss Cox If she knew anything about It. "Seventeen has never been ' rented as long as I have had anything to do with the office. It Is away off there In the corner where It la hard to see Into. Theres always been more boxes than there was any call for. -Not one of them In the lower row ever haa been rented, even in summer, when there's a lot of city folks out here." "Do you ever remember of seeing any mail addressed to that box?" She worked industriously at her crocheting for a minute or two before replying and then, putting It aside, said thoughtfully: "It's funny that you should have asked me that." "Why?" "I don't know that I've any burl nesa telling you," said Miss Cox, aa she debated with herself whether or not she was talking too much, "but I am as anxious as anybody to find out what's become of Charlie Rouser, ana from what I've seen of you I guess you're a sight more likely to find him than Jim Dobbs, the constable. If I wasn't sure In my own mind that Char lie hadn't done nothing out of the way, I don't know as I'd even be telling you about It But since you've asked me, I guess I will." She hesitated, studying my aoe aa if trying to read there whether or not I meant harm to the missing postv master. I tried not to exhibit undu interest though Inwardly I felt quite Jubilant I was certain that I was en the track of Important revelations. (TO BE CONTINUED.)

Many people have large, useful trays, but they are never used except on state occasions, while every day weary steps are taken which might be divided by ten if one used some uten sil for removing dishes and food from the table to the pantry. A wire dish tray 1b convenient and light If one does not care to use a tray, the dishes may be piled into It and quick ly removed. If one was handy with tools, the handy man could make, with little ex pense, a wheeled tray which could hold the entire mea!, and remove it in an other trip. The small wheels from a go-cart are used on home-made trays. The use of paper or wooden plates in the kitchen for much of the left over food are light and easy to handle, and not expensive to replace when soiled. PaDer of all kinds in the kitchen saves the table, saves dish washing, and is an all-'round step saver. A roll of Dacer toweling to use for greasy dishes, wiping knives of grease and acid, wiping out greasy plateB, is in valuable. Manila paper may be used for many purposes as work savers. ITae it for a molding board or ror crumbing croquettes, then the soiled paper can be burned, where a hoara would have to be washed. A bottle of kerosene near the sink to wipe it out, will save much scour ing. When cooking a salad dressing or a white sauce, a custard or many veg etables, prepare more .than is needed for the time being. It takes but little more fuel and time to practice this economy. If one has a table covered with zinc in the kitchen it will save much clean ing, and is indeed a joy forever. Keep small squares of cheese clotn to wipe the meat before cooking. These may then be dried and burned. These small bits are nice for use in straining soups, fats or vinegar. Would Leave Nature Alone.
