McKnight and Ilotrhkiss were
sauntering slowly down the road as I
caught up with tlioin. As usual, the
little man was busy with some ab
struse mental problem.
"The idea is this," hi was saying,
his biows knitted in thought, "if a
left-handed man. standing in the po
sition of the man in th picture,
should jump from a car. uould he be
likely to sprain his right ankle? When
a right-handed man prepares for a
leap of that kind, my theory is that he
would hold on with his right hand,
and alight at the proper lime, on his
right foot. Of course "
"I imagine, although I don't know,"
interrupted McKnight. "that a man
cither ambidextrous or one-armed,
jumping from the Washington Flier,
would be more likely to land on his

with liis theories to notice me.
We were only just in time for our j
train back to Baltimore, but Mc
Knight took advantage of a second's
delay to shake the station agent v. arm
ly by the hand.
"I want to express my admiration
for you." he said beamingly. "Ability
of your order is thrown away here.
You should hae been a city police
man, my friend."
The agent looked a trifle uncertain.
"The young lady was the one who
told me to keep still." he said.
McKnight glanced at me. gave the
agent's hand a final shake, and j
climbed on board. But I knew per-1
fectly that he had guessed the reason J
for my delay. i
He was very silent on the way
home. Hotchkiss. too. had little toj
say. He was reading over his notes!
intently, stopping now and then to'
mnke a penciled addition. .Tust be-1

"Probably. I did not ask her."
"Curious, her locking that fellow

good reason for it all. And I wisli
you wouldn't be so suspicious of mo
tives. Rich." I said warmly.
"Only yesterday you were the sus
picious one." he retorted, and we
lapsed into strained silence.
It was late when we got to Wash
ington. One of Mrs. Klopton's small
tyrannies was exacting punctuality at
minis, and. like several other things.
1 respected it. There are always
some concessions that should be made
in return for faithful si rvice.
So. as my dinner hour of seven was
long past. McKnight and I went to a
little restaurant downtown where they
have a very .decent way of fixing
chicken a la King. Hotchkiss had de
parted, economically bent, for a small
hotel where he lived on the American
"I want to think some things over,"
he said in response to my invitation
to dinner, "and. anyhow, there's no
use dining out when I pay the same,
dinner or no dinner, where 1 am stop
ping." The day had been hot, and the first
floor dining room was sultry in spite
of the palms and fans which attempted
to simulate the verdure and breezes
of the country.
It was crowded, too, with a typical
summer night crowd, and, after sit
ting for a few minutes in a swelter
ing corner, we got up and went to the
smaller dining room upstairs. Here it
was not so warm, and we settled our
selves comfortably by a window.
Over in a corner half a dozen boys
on their way back to school were rag
ging a perspiring waiter, a proceed
ing so exactly to McKnight's taste
that he insisted on going over to join
them. But their table was full, and
somehow that kind of fun had lost its
point for me.
Not far from us a very stout, middle-aged
man, apoplectic with the
heat, was elephantinely jolly for the
benefit of a bored-looking girl across
the table from him, and at the next
table a newspaper woman ate alone.

It was a motley Bohemian crowd.
I looked over the room casually.
'.hiie McKnight ordered the meal.
Then my attention was attracted to
the table next to ours. Two people
were sitting there, so deep in conver
sation that they did not notice us.
The woman's face was hidden under
her hat, as she traced the pattern of
the cloth mechanically with her fork.
But the man's features stood out clear
in the light of the candles on the
table It was Bronson!
"lie shows the strain, doesn't he?"
McKnight said, holding up the wine
list as if he read from it. "Who's the

"Who is it?" asked McKnight under

lips rather than said it. McKnight's
eyebrows went up and he looked with
increased interest at the black-gowned
1 ate little after that. The situation
was rather bad for me, I began to see.
Here was a woman who could, if she
wished, and had any motive for so
doing, put me in jail under a capital
charge. A word from her to the po
lice, and polite surveillance would be
come active interference.
Then, too. she could say that she
had seen me, just after the wreck,
with a young woman from the mur
dered man's car. and thus probably
bring Alison West into the case.
It is not surprising, then, that I ate
little. The woman across seemed in
no hurry to go. She loitered over a
demi-tasse, and that finished, sat with
her elbow on the table, her chin in
her hand, looking darkly at the chang
ing groups in the room.
The fun at the table where the col
lege boys sat began to grow a little
noisy; the fat man, now a purplish
shade, ambled away behind his slim
companion; the newspaper woman
pinned on her business-like hat and
stalked out. still roe woman at ms
next table waited.
It was a relief when the meal was
over. We got our hats and were
about to leave the room, when a
waiter touched me on the arm.
"I beg your pardon, sir," he said,
"but the lady at the table near the
window, the lady in black, sir, would
like to speak to .you."
I looked down' between the rows of
tables to where the woman sat alone,
her chin still resting on her hand, her
black eyes still insolently staring,
this time at me.
"I'll have to go," I said to McKnight
hurriedly. "She knows all about that
affair and she'd be a bad enemy."
"I don't like her lamps," McKnight
oocerved. after a glance at her. "Bet
ter jolly her a little. Good-by."
The Notes and a Bargain.
I went back slowly to where the
woman sat alone. She smiled rather
eddly as I. drew near, and pointed to
' the chair Bronson had vacated.
"Sit down. Mr. Biakeley," she said,
"I am going to take a few minutes of
your valuable, time."
"Certainly." I sat down opposite
her and glanced at a cuckoo clock on
i the wall. "I am sorry, but I ha'e only
a few minutes. If you " She laugh
ed a little, not very pleasantly, and
opening a small black fan covered
with spangles, waved it slowly.
"The fact is," she said, "I think we
are about to make a bargain."
"A bargain?" I asked incredulously.
"You have a second advantage of me.
iou Know my name" I paused sug
gestively and she took the cue.
"I am Mrs. Conway." she said, and
flicked a crumb off the table with an
The name was scarcely a surprise.
I had already surmised that this
might be the woman whom rumor
credited as being Bronson's common
law wire. Rumor, I remembered, had
said other things even less pleasant,
things which had been brought out at
Bronson's arrest for forgery.
"We met last under less fortunate
circumstances." she was saying. "I
have been fit for nothing since that
terrible dav. And vou you had a
broken arm. I think."
"I still have it." I said, with a lame
attempt at jocularity; "but to have
escaped at ail was a miracle. We have
much, indeed, to be thankful for."
"I suppose we have." she said care
lessly, "although sometimes . I doubt
it." She was looking somberly to
ward the dcor through which her late
companion had made his exit.
"You sent for me " I said.
"Yes. I sent for you." She roused
herself and sat erect. "Now. Mr.

When Every Thing Looks Bad

three that I know of yourself, the
young woman with whom you left

I nodded without speaking.

were in rather a hole," she went on.
looking at me with a disagreeable
smile. "You were, if I remember, ac
cused of a rather atrocious crime.
There was a lot of corroborative evi
dence, was there not? I seem to re
member a dirk and the murdered
man's pocket-book in your possession,
and a few other things that were
well, rather unpleasant."
I was thrown a bit off my guard.
"You remember, also," I said quick
ly, "that a man disappeared from the
car, taking my clothes, papers and
"I remember that you said so." Her
tone was quietly insulting, and I bit
my lip at having been caught. It was
no time to make a defense.
"You have missed one calculation,"
I said coldly, "and that is the dis
covery of the man who left the train."
"You have found him?" She bent
forward, and again I regretted my
hasty speech. "I knew it; I said so."
"We are going to find him." I as
serted, with a confidence I did not
feel. "We can produce at any time
proof that a man left the Flier a few
miles beyond the wreck. And we can
find him. I am positive."
"But you have not found him yet?"
She was clearly disappointed. "Well,
so be it. Now for our bargain. You
will admit that I am no fool."
I made no such admission, and she
"How flattering you are!" she said.
"Very well. Now for the premises.

"On the journey back to Pittsburg

I was completely at her mercy, but
I gnawed my lip with irritation.
"Now for .the bargain." She leaned
over and lowered her voice. "A fair
exchange, you know. The minute you
put those four notC3 in my hand
that minute the blow to my head has
caused complete forgctfulness as to
the events of that awful morning. I
am the only witness, and I will be si
lent Do you understand? They will
call off their dogs."
My head was buzzing with the
strangeness of the idea.
"But," I said, striving to gain time.
"I haven't the notes. I can't give you
what 1 haven't got."
"You have had the case continued,"
she said sharply. "You expect to find
them. Another thing." she added
slowly, watching my face, "if you don't
get them soou, Bronson will have
them. They haw been offered to him
already, but at a prohibitive price."
"But." I said, bewildered, "what is
your object in coming to me? If
Bronson will get them anyhow "
She shut her fan with a click and
her face was not particularly pleasant
to look at.
"You are dense," she said insolent
ly. "I want those papers for myself,
not for Andy Bronson."
"Then the idea is." I said, ignoring
her tone, "that you think sou have
me in a hole, and that if I find those
paners and give them to you you will
let me out. As I understand it, our
friend Bronson. under those circum
stances, will also be in a hole."
'The notes would be or no use to
you for a limited length of time," I
went on, watching her narrowly. "If
they are not turned over to the state's
attorney within a reasonable time there
will have to be a nolle pros that is.
the case will simply be dropped for
lack of evidence."
"A week would answer. I think."
she said slowb'. "You will !o it. then "
I laughed, although I was not espe
"No. I'll not do it. I expect to
come across the notes any time now.
and I expect just as certainly to turn
them over to the state's attorney
when I get them."
She got up suddenly, pushing her
chair back with a noisy grating sound
that turned many eyes toward us.
"You're more of a fool than I
thought you." she sneered, and left
me at the table.

was one of the witnesses, and had

that was so, how did he account for
hundreds of the best farmers having

The safest rule is to commence

Plans of the National Association for
the Study and Prevention
What "a Million for Tuberculosis
from Red Cross Seals" will do In pro
viding some of the 275.000 bed3 need
ed at once in the United States for
consumptives, is explained In a recent
bulletin of the National Association
for the Study and Prevention of Tu
berculosis. There Is just about one
bed for every ten Indigent consump
tives, and If all tuberculosis persons
In the country are counted, both rich
and poor, hardly one for every 25 or
30. If sufficient hospital accomoda
tions are provided only for those
who are too poor to pay the fuH
price for their treatment, fully 275,00
more beds in special institutions for
tuberculosis would he needed at once.

vide and maintain so many beds In
hospitals, make It Imperative, the
National Association for the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis de
clares, that such Institutions be erect
ed from public money, either muni
cipal, county or state. In order to
get appropriations for public hospitals
for tuberculosis, agitation is neces
sary, and in order to create a cam
paign of agitation, organization is de
manded. But in order that an organ!
zation may carry on an effective cam
paign, funds are needed.
These funds it is proposed to secure
in as many communities as possible
from the sale of Red Cross seals.
