"A medicine that will play such 1 a remarkable part in one's life as Tanlac has in mine certainly de serves the highest praise," said Ora E. Petree of 4335 Kenman avenue, Chicago, in a conversation with friends at the Guster Hotel in Galesburg, recently. Mr. Petree who was for fourteen years sales " man and district manager of Swift ' & Company, resigned his position with this Company March first, this year, and has since gone into busi ness for himself. "It was over twelve years ago," he continued"that I began having indigestion and the trouble soon got to be serious. Nolhing seemed-o agree with me and I lost weight " and strength rapidly. Gas would form on my stomach after eating -and keep me in misery for hours. I would often bloat badly and at these times my heart would pal pitate so that it greatly alarmed --me. During these attacks I would ."become so dizzy that I had to be careful to "keep from falling. I was failing so fast that I took the matter up with the best specialist we have in Chicago and was ad- vised that I was suffering from nervous indigestion and catarrh of the stomach. ,1 got so I could neither eat nor sleep but little, had To energy, and it just seemed that my whole-life had been changed completely around. Away back there when I was still on the road sailing goods, I, can recall how I wouldf give out so easily and my ' wina felt three times heavier than oeiore. a cuuiu nui appiuuwu a customer with my old time de termination and confidence. In other words I didn't have that old time fight in me, which is - so necessary in business, any more. I felt so miserable that I could, hard ly get around and Everything I did or said was an effort During my fourteen years as salesman and manager I always took particular ' notice of the results of my efforts and was not at all surprised when L- T 1 J J. . I found my Dusiness naa laiien oil twenty per cent for the year. " "My health had been so .poor and I Suffered so terribly that it re flected on my business and I, was rapidly losing ground. Realizing this I determined to stay with the specialists and get relief if pos sible, but this hope was never, in any degree, realized. On the oth er hand I gradually became worse and had about made up my mind to resign my position and go to v soma distant land in search of re lief and health. By this time myr suffering was not only temble, but almost continuous. One day I was speaking with a friend of mine about my condition and incidentally spoke of my intentions of giving up my position, and he insisted on . me tryng Tanlac. How an adver tised medicine could help me when the '1 most , skilled treatment had failed was more than I could un derstand, but my friend being a responsible man and high up in the world, I ' considered his judgment excellent, so I bought . a bottle of Well, the results I have gotten from this medicine have been absolutely amazing, not only to me, but also to the company, and even more so to my wife and friends who were best acquainted with my condition.

THE ' , WOMAN IN BLACK By EDMUND (CLERIHEW BENTLEYK Copjrrifht. Ill, by , CHAPTER XVIII. The Woman in Black. The , sea; broke raging upon the foot, of the cliff under a good breeze; the sun flooded the land with life from a dappled blue sky. In this oerfection of English weather, Trent' who had slept ill, went down befpre 8 o'clock to a pool among the rocks, the direction of which had been given him, and dived deep into clear water. Between vast gray boulders he swam out to the tossing open, forced himself some little way against a coast-wise current and then returned to his ref uge pattered and refreshed. Ten minutes later he was scaling the cliff again, and his mind, cleared for the moment of a heavy disgust for the affair he had in hand, was turning over his plans for the morning. It was the day of the inquest, the day after his arrival in the place. He had carried matters not much farther after parting with the Amer ican on the road to eishopsbridge. In the afternoon he had walked from the inn into the town, accom panied by Mr. Cupples and had there made certain purchases at a chem ist's shop, conferred privately for some time with a photographer, sent off a reply-paid telegram, and made an inquiry at the telephone exchange. He had aid but little Sbout the case to Mr. Cupples, who seemed incurious on his. side, and nothing at all about the results of his investigation or the steps he was about to take. After their re turn from Bishopsbridge, Trent had written a long dispatch for the Record, and sent it to be tele graphed by the proud hands of the paper's local representative. This morning as he scaled the clifjf he told himself that he had never taken yd a "case he liked so little, or which absorbed him so much. The more he contemplated it in the golden sunshine of this new day, the more evil and the more challenging it appeared. AH that he suspected and all that he almost knew had occupied his questing brain for hours to the exclusion of sleep; and in this glorious light and air. though washed in body and spirit by' the fierce purity of the sea, he only saw the more clearly the darkness of the guilt in which he believed, and was more bitterly re pelled by the motive at which he guessed. But now at least his zeal was awake again, and the sense of the Wunt quickened. He would neither slacken nor spare; here need be no compunction. In the course of the day, he hoped, his net would be .complete. He had work to do in the -morning; and with very vivid expectancy, though not much se rious hope, he awaited the answer to the telegram which he had shot into the sky, as it were, the day before. ' The path back to the hotel wound fot soe way along the top of the cliff, and oh nearing a spot he had marked from the sea level, where the face had fallen away long ago, he approached the edge and looked down, hoping to follow with vhis eyes the most delicately beautiful of all the movement of water, the wash of a light sea over broken rock. But no rock was there.. A few feet be low him a broad ledge stood out, a rough platform as large as a great loom, thickly grown with wiry grass and walled in steeply on three sides. There, close to the verge where the cliff at last dropped ysheer, a wom an was sitting, her -arms about her drawn' up knees, her eyes fixed on the trailing smoke of a distant ,liner, her face full of some dream. This woman seemed to Trent, whose training had taught him to live in his eyes, to make the most beautiful picture he had ever seen. Her face of southern pallor, touched by the kiss of the wind with color on the cheek, presented to him a profile of delicate . regularity in which there was nothing hard; nevertheless the black brows bend ind'down toward the point where they almost met gave her in repose Home Builders' Offices Being Moved to 18th & Dodge St. - V- B.

Adv; - " , ;" v. the Century eompanr. a lebk of something like severity, strangely redeemed by the . open curves of the month. Trent said to himself that the absurdity or other wise of a lover writing sonnets to his mistress's eyebrow deoended After all on the quality of the eye brow. Her nose was of the straight and fine sort, . exquisitely escaping ine peranum or 100 mucn length. Her hat lay pinned to the grass be side her, and the lively breeze play ed with her thick dark hair, blowing backward the two broad bandeaux that should have covered much of her-forehead, and agitating, a hun dred tiny curls from the mass gath ered at the nape. t very mine aooui ine laav in black, from her shoes of suede to the hat that she had discarded: lus tcrless " black covered her to her bare throat All she wore was fine and well out on. Dream v and delicate of spirit as her looks- de clared her, it was very plain that she was long practised as only a woman' grown can be in dressing well, the oldest of the arts, and had her touch of primal joy m the ex cellence of the body that was so ad mirably curved now in the attitude of embraced knees. With the sug gestion of French taste Jn - her clothes, she made a very modern fig ure seated there, until one looked at her face and saw the glow and tri umph of all vigorous beings that ever faced sun and wind and sea' together in the prime of the year. One saw, too, a womanhood unmix ed and vigorous, unconsciously sure of itself. ' t Trent, who bad halted only for a moment in the surprise of seeing the woman in black, had passed by on the cliff above her, perceiving and feeling as he went the things set down. At all times his keen vision and active brain took in and tasted details with an easy swiftness that was marvelous to men of slower chemistry; the need to stare, he held, was evidence of blindness. Now the, feeling of beauty was awakened and exultant and doubled the power of his sense. In these in stants a picture was printed on his memory that would never pass away. As he went by unheard on the turf the woman, still alone with her thoughts, suddenly moved. She un clasped her long hands from about her knees, stretched her limbs and body with feline grace, then slowly raised her head and extended her arms with open, curving fingers, as if to gather to her all the glory and overwhelming sanity of the morn ing. This was a gesture not to be mistaken; it was a gesture of free dom, the movement of a soul's reso lution to be, to possess, to go for ward, perhaps to enjoy. So he saw her for an instant as he passed, and he did not turn. He knew suddenly who the woman must be. and it was as it a curtain of gloom were drawn between him and the splendor of the day. You were planning to go to White Gables before the inquest I think," remarked Trent to Mr. Cup ples as they finished their break fast "You ought to be off, if you are to get back to the court in time. I have something to attend to there myself, so we might walk up to gether. I will just go and get my camera." "By all means," Mr. Cupples an swered; and they set off at once in the ever-growing warmth of the morning. The roof of White Gables, a surly patch of dull red against the dark trees, seemed to harmonize with Trent's mood; he felt heavy, sinister and troubled. If a blow must fall, that might strike down that creature radiant of beauty and life whom he had seen that morning, he did not wish it to come from his hand. An exaggerated chivalry had lived in him since the first teachings of his mother; but at this moment the horror of bruising anything so lovely was almost as much the artist's revulsion as the gentleman's. On the other hand, vas the hunt to end in nothing? The quality" of the ffair was such that the thought of forbearance was an agony. J. here never -was such a case; and he alone, he was con fident, held the truth of it under his hand. At least he determined, that day Should show whether what he believed was a delusion. He would trample his compunction underfoot until he was quite sure that there was any call for it That same morning he ould know. As they entered at the gate of the drive they saw Marlowe and. the American standing in talk before the front door. In the shadow of the porch was the lady in black. She saw them, and came gravely forward over the lawn, moving as Trent had known that she would move, erect and balanced, stepping lightly. When she welcomed him on Mr. Cupples' presentation, ' her eyes of golden-flecked brown ob served him kindly. In her pale com posure, worn as the mask of dis tress, there was no trace of the emotion that had seemed a halo about her head on the ledge of the cliff. , She spoke the appropriate commonplace in a low. and even voice. After a few words ta Mr. Cupples she turned her eyes on Trent again. "I hope you will succeed," she s2id earnestly. ."Do, you think you will succeed?" v He made his mind up as the words left her lips. He said: "I believe I shall do so, Mrs. Mander son. When I have the case suffi ciently complete I shall ask you to let me see you and tell you about it It may be necessary to consult you before the facts are published." She looked puzzled, and distress showed for an instant in her eyes. "If it is necessary, of course you shall do so," she said. On the brink of his next speech Trent hesitated. He remembered that the lady ha1 not wished to re peat to him the story already given to the inspector or to be question ed at all. He was not unconscious that he desired to hear her voice and watch her face a little longer, if it might be; but the matter he had to mention really troubled his mind, it was a queer thing that fitted no where into the pattern within whose corners he had by this time brought the other queer things in the case, It was very possible that she could explain it away in a breath; it was unlikely that any one else could. "He summoned his resolution, j "You have been so kind," he said, ' in allowing me access to the house and every opportunity of studying the case, that I am going to. ask leave to put a question or two to yourself nothing that you would rather not " answer. I , think. May I?". She glanced at him ,wearily -"It would be stupid of me to refuse. Ask your questions, MrT Trent." "It's only this," said Trent hur riedly. "We know that your hus band lately drew an unusually large sum of ready money from his Lon don bankers, and was keeping it here. It is here now, in fact Have you any idea why he should have done that?" : a i r. She opened' her eyes in astonish ment. "I cannot imagine," .she said. "I did not know he had done so. I am very much surprised to hear it" . .- ' , "Why is it surprising?" "I thought my husband had very little nVpney in the house, On Sun day night just before he went out in the motor, he came into the drawing room where I was sitting. He seemed to be irritated about something, and asked me at-tfnee if I had any notes or gold I could let him have until next day.

'; . Lillian consulted her wrist watch and made a mental calculation. "We have plenty of timet"' she said, turning, to me with an apolo getic air. , "I forgot you don't know all that we have done," she said. "Mr. Drake has a man in tow who was an associate of our .cherubic ac quaintance in one of tier particular ly hectic escapades, ne for which the authorities of a certain city would particularly like to see her: He thought it might be a gdod idea to have him handy-tonight in case the lady needed proof that we have all the goods we want on her." I shivered involuntarily at.' the vision Lillian's words called up. The very atmosphere into which we were entering was charged with crime "and disgrace. As I looked us I saw Allen Drake watching me solicitously, but he turned his eyes abruptly toward Lillian. "You know," he said hesitating ly, "that it really isn't necessary for Mrs. Graham to come with us to night. We have all. the proof we need against the woman, plenty to frighten her completely, even though she will probably be shrewd enough to realize that we don't wish to put her behind bars. But she no doubt will never annoy Mrs. Graham s father again. "You're a brilliant man, Allen Drake, Lillian interrupted. I ve no doubt you're kind to your aged parents and have sound views on politics and religion. I've no doubt also that you'll train your wife iff the way she should go when you get one.

He had been sleeping badly, as perhaps you know. Then he went off with Mr. Marlowe. I thought it , odd he should need money on Sunday night, but I soon forgot about it I never remembered it again until now." It was curious, certainly, said Trent, starting into the distance. Mr. Cupples began to speak to his niece of the arrangements for the inquest, and Trent moved away to where Marlowe was pacing slowly upon the lawn. The young man seemed relieved to talk about the coming of' the day. Though he still seemed tired out and nervous, he showed himself not without a quiet humor In describing the pomposities of the local ponce and the portentous airs of Dr. Stock. Trent turned the con versation gradually toward the problem of the crime, and all Mar lowe's gravity returned. (Continued Tomorrow.) it out That we musn't let happen.
