they then abandoned their work,

articles of merchandise from either
place. The robbery was discovered
upon opening the store Wednesday
morning and Sheriff Quinton im

a short time and as much evidence
collected as possible, and in the
meantime the Beatrice bloodhounds

man who has been employed on the

When Dick Arlington married, it
was with the utmost misgiving. His
wife was the daughter of the farm
er for whom he worked, under an as
sumed name. Dick finally decided
to tell Margaret that he was a fugi
tive, accused of the murder of his
rich aunt. With perfect faith in
him, Margaret set out with Dick to
return to the city where the crime
was committed, and though Dick did
not look for any help from his arca
dian wife, it was she who finally
solved the mystery which had puz
zled the police for nearly a year. For
Tracy, Dick's lawyer and confidant,
who had advised him to run away in
the first place, was inveigled by his
sudden infatuation for Dick's wife
into a full confession of the crime.
Then it was Dick's turn to doubt
his wife, for Dick had been doubting
some one all through the picture.
First it was the strange secretary
that bis uncle "had hired, and whom
he suspected of the crime. The secre
tary had now turned out to 12 c.
noted detective. Then K was Tracy.
;n whom he had put the most im
plicit confidence. He had turned out
to be the actunl murderer. And now
it was his wife. How could she
have fooled him so grievously?
' It was p. p'.juf. old top." said the
ecretrry. "She did just exactly as
I told her to do and that wa the
only way wc ever could have gotten
:hat fox-faced lawyer to confess."
And for the first time in a year,
Dick's mind was free from any sus
picion. See this picture Saturday night
and help along the Library fund.
