CHAPTER XXIV. Continued.
Hotchklss felt certain tliat It had
"Been Sullivan, but I was not so sure.
Why would he have crawled like a
tltfef Into his own house? If he had
crossed the park, as seemed probable,
when we did. he had not made any
attempt to use the knocker. I Rave it
cp finally, and made an effort to con
ciliate the young woman in the tower.
We had heard no sound since our
spectacular entrance Into her room.
I was distinctly uncomfortable, as
clone this time. I climbed to the tower
staircase. Reasoning from before,
one would probably throw a chair at
sae. I stopped at the foot of the stair
case and called.
"Hello up there," I said. In as de
fconnalr a manner as I could summon.
"Good morning. Wi geht es bel
ihnen?"
No reply.
"Ron jour, mademoiselle." I tried
again. This time there was a move
ment of some sort from above, but
nothing fell on me.
"I we want to apologize for rous
ing you so er unexpectedly this
morning." I went on. "The fact Is. we
wtnted to talk to you. and you you
were hard to waken. We are travel
ers, lost in your mountains, and we
crave a breakfast and an audience."
Sh came to the door then. I could
feel that she was investigating the top
of uiy head from above. "Is Mr. Sul
livan with you?" she asked. It was
the first word from her, and she was
-not sure of her voice.
"No. We are alone. If you will
come down and look at us you will
iind us two perfectly harmless people,
whose horse curses on him depart
ed without leave last night and left
ua at your gate."
She relaxed somewhat then and
came down a step or two. "I was
afraid I had killed somebody." she
eaid. "The housekeeper left yester
day, and the other maids went with
uor."
When she saw that I was com
paratively young and lacked the ear
marks of the highwayman, she was
-greatly relieved. She was inclined to
fight shy of Hotchklss. however, for
ome reason. She gave us a breakfast
of a sort, for there was little in the
house, and afterward we telephoned
to the town for a vehicle. While
Hotchklss examined scratches and re
placed the Bokhara rug. I engaged
Jennie in conversation.
"Can you tell me," I asked, "who Is
managing the estate since Mrs. Cur
ds was killed?"
"2Co one," she returned shortly.
"Has any member of the family
been here since the accident?"
No. sir. There was only the two.
and some think Mr. Sullivan was
killed as well as his sister."
-You don't?"
"No." with conviction.
--Why?"
'.She wheeled on me with quick sus
picion. "Are you a detective?" she de
manded. "No."
"You told him to say you repre
sented the law."
"I am a lawyer. Some of them mis
represent the law, but I "
She broke In impatiently.
""A sheriffs officer?"
No. Look here, Jennie; I am all
that I should be. You'll have to be
lieve that. And I'm In a bad position
through no fault of my own. I want
jqu to answer some questions. If you
Ul help me. I will do what I can for
foo. Do you live near here?"
Her chin quivered. It was the first
tign of weakness she had shown.
"My home is In Pittsburg." she said,
"told I haven't enough money to get
ere. They hadn't paid my wages for
two months. They don't pay any
body." "Very well." I returned. "I'll serul
you back to Pittsburg. Pullman in
cluded. If you will tell me some things
I want to know."
She agreed eagerly. Outside the
window Hotchkiss was bending over,
examining footprints in the' drive.
"Now." I began, "there has been a
Miss West stayiug here?"
-Yes."
"Mr. Sullivan was attentive to
fcer?"
"Yes. She was the granddaughter
of a wealthy man in Pittsburg. My
aunt has been in his familv for 20
years. Mrs. Curtis wanted her broth-,
er to marry Miss West."
"Do you think he did marry her?"
I could not keep the excitement out
of my voice.
"No
There were reasons" she .
topped abruptly.
"Do you know anything of the fam-1
Uy? Are they were they New York
s?" "They came from somewhere in the
touth. I have heard Mrs. Curtis say
oer mother was a Cuban. I don't
know much about them, but Mr. Sulli
van had a wicked temper, though he

didn't look IL Folks say big. light
haired people are easy going, but I
don't believe it. sir."
"How long was Miss West here?"
"Two weeks."
I hesitated about further question
ing. Critical as my position was, I
could not pry deeper into Alison
West's affairs. If she had got into the
hands of adventurers, as Sullivan and
his sister appeared to have been, she
was safely away from them again. But
something of the situation in the car
Ontario was forming itself in my
mind: the incident at the farmhouse
lacked only motive to be complete.
Was Sullivan, after all. a rascal or a
criminal? Was the murderer Sulli
van or Mrs. Conway? The lady or the
tiger again.
Jennie was speaking.
"I hope Miss West was not hurt?"
she asktrd. "We liked her, all of us.
She was not like Mrs. Curtis."
I wanted to say that she was not
like anybody in the world. Instead
"She escaped with some bruises." i
said.
She glanced at my arm. "You were
on the train?"
"Yes."
She waited for more questions, but
none coming, she went to the door.
Then she closed it softly and came
back.
"Mrs. Curtis Is dead? You are sure
of it?" she asked.
"She was killed Instantly, I be
lieve. The body was not recovered.
But I have reasons for believing that
Mr. Sullivan is living."
"I knew it." she said. "I think
he was here the night before last.
That is why I went to the tower room.
I believe he would kill me if be could."
As nearly as her round and comely
face could express it, Jennie's ex
pression was tragic at that moment.
I made a quick resolution, and acted
on it at once.
"You are not entirely frank with
me. Jennie," I protested. "And I am
going to tell you more than I have.
We are talking at cross purposes.
"I was on the wrecked train, in the
same car with Mrs. Curtis, Miss West
and Mr. Sullivan. During the night
there was a crime committed in that
car and Mr. Sullivan disappeared.
But he left behind a chain of circum
stantial evidence that involved me
completely, so that I may. at any
time, be arrested."
Apparently she did not comprehend
for a moment Then, as If the mean
ing of my words had just dawned on
her. she looked up and gasped:
"You mean Mr. Sullivan committed
the crime himself?"
"I think he did."
"What was it?"
"It was murder," I said deliberately.
Her hands clenched involuntarily,
and she shrank back. "A woman?"
She could scarcely form her words.
"No, a man: a Mr. Simon Harring
ton of Pittsburg."
Her effort to retain her self-control
was pitiful. Then she broke down and
crieu. uer bead on the back of a tall 1
chair.
"It was my fault." she said wretch
edly, "my fault. I should not have
sent them the werd."
After a few minutes she grew quiet
She seemed to hesitate over some
thing, and finally determined to say it
"You will understand better, sir,
when I say that I was raised in the
Harrington family. Mr. Harrington
was Mr. Sullivan's wife's father!"
CHAPTER XXV.
At the Station.
So it had been the tiger, not the
lady! Well, I had bld to that theory
all through. Jennie suddenly be
came a valuable person; if necessary
she could prove the connection be-
tween Sullivan and the murdered man.
and show a motive for the crime. 1
was triumphant when Hotchkiss came
in. When the girl had produced a
photograph of Mrs. Sullivan, and I had
recognized the bronze-haired girl of
the train, we were both well satisfied
which goes to prove the ephemeral
nature of most human contentments.
Jennie either had nothing more to
say. or feared she had said too much.
She was evidently uneasy before
Hotchkiss. I to!d her that Mrs. Sulli
van was recovering In a Baltimore
hospital, but she already knew it,
from some source, and merely nodded.
She made a few preparations for leav
ing, while Hotchkiss and I compared
notes, and then, with the cat in her
arms, she climbed into the trap from
the town. 1 sat with her. and on the
way dov.-n she told me a little, not
much.
"If you see Mrs. Sullivan." she ad
vised, "and she is conscious, she prob
ably thinks that both her husband and
her father' "aero killed In the wreck.
She will be in a bad way. sir."
"You mean that shestill cares
about her husband?"
The cat crawled over on my knee,
and rubbed Its head against my hand
invitingly. Jennie stared at the un
dulating line of the mountain crests, a
colossal surf against a blue ocean of
sky. "Yos, she cares." she said soft
ly. "Women are made like that They
say they are cats, but Peter there in
your lap wouldn't come back and lick
your hand if you kicked him. If If
you have to tell her the truth, be as
gentle as you can sir. She has been
good to me that's why I have played
the spy here all summer. It's a thank
less thing, spying on people."
"It is that." I agreed soberly.
Hotchkiss and 1 arrived in Washing
ton late that evening, and, rather than
arouse the household. I went to the'
club. I was at the office early the
1 next morning and admitted myself.
McKnlght rarely appeared before half
after ten, and our modest office force
some time after nine. I looked over
my previous day's mail and waited,
with such patience as I possessed, for
McKnight In the interval I called
up Mrs. Klopton and announced that
I would dine at home that night What
my household subsists on during my
numerous absences I have never dis
covered. Tea. probably, and crackers.
Dilligent search when I have made a
midnight arrival, never reveals any
thing more substantial. Possibly I im
agine it, but the annouuecment that
I am about to make a journey always
seems to create a general atmosphere
of depression throughout the house,
as though Euphemia aud Eliza, and
Thomas, the stableman, were already
subsisting, in imagination, on Mrs.
Klopton's meager fare.
So I called her up and announced
my arrival. There was something un
usual in her tone, as though her
throat was tense with indignation. Al
ways shrill, her elderly voice rasped
my ear painfully through the re
ceiver. iwwWWMWMVWVWWWrVMMIrrWFrrrrW

Incident That Caused Youngster

Efficacy of Prayer.
to
The Sunday school lesson had been
on the efficacy of prayer, and the
teacher had done her best to instill
into the youthful mind the belief that
our prayers are answered. There wa3
one doubting Thomas, however, who
insisted that he knew, better.
"Why. Tommy, I am surprised to hear
you say you don't believe our prayers
are answered," expostulated the
teacher.
"I know they ain't" persisted Tom
my, doggedly.
"What makes you think so?" asked
the teacher.
"I don't think It; I know it," re
plied Tommy. "You know the angels
brought a new baby to our house last
week."
"Yes, I heard about that." said the
teacher. "Now, surely, that was an
answer to prayer, wasn't It?"
"It was, nit!" replied Tommy dis
"I have changed the butcher. Mr.

from the voice in which Mrs. Klopton
conveys the most indifferent matters,
if something of real significance has
occurred. Also, throuch lone habit.
I have learned how quickest to bring
her to the point.
"You are pessimistic this morning,"
I returned. "What's the matter, Mrs.

Iceman. What Is it now? Somebody

She cleared her throat

"Yes. I threatened to sue them,

Feeding Ostriches
(By J. SI. BALTIMORE)
The great success which has atten
ded ostrich farming in Cape Colony,
has caused a number of other
South African countries to take up the
Industry with great zest This has
caused some uneasiness In Cape
Colony, as it Is feared that there may
be an overproduction of low-quality
plumes. The market for high-grade
feathers Is capable of expansion.
The export of ostrich feathers from
Cape Colony has Increased year after
year; it amounted last year to 792,723
pounds, valued at $10,490,425. While
the Cape Colony farms contain about
GOO.000 tame ostriches, there are but
30.000 tame birds in all other coun
tries combined.
At the present time ostrich farming
Is carried on in Europe, Madagascar.
Argentina. Australia. New Zealand,
ond in California, Arizona and Florida.
The most dangerous rival to South
Africa in this respect will be the
United States.
It is not easy to arrive at a Just es
timate of the value of ostrich feath
ers annually imported into the United
States, on account of ther being in
cluded with other feathers In many
cases. The direct imports from South
Africa In 1909 amounted to $1.193.3S3.
while the direct Imports Into the
United Kingdom from the colony du
ring the same year amounted to $1,

CARING FOR
BERRY PATCH
Great Many Farmers Believe Fall
Is Proper Time to Trans
plant Strawberry
Plants.
(By ANNA GAT.IGIinit)
The strawberry will stand a good
deal of HI treatment, but It will nol
produce good crops under the abovi
conditions.
Any good soil that will bring cort
or potatoes will do for strawberries,
but if you want berries the size ol
hen's eggs, put the plants In the rich
est soil you can find and cultivate thi
same as other garden crops.
If the soil Is not rich enough with
out being fertilized, use well rotted
stable manure. Fresh manure will nol
do. except as a top dressing; after the
plants are well started, spread it be
tween the rows.
If one can procure good, strong
plants In the fall and have them taken
up with a quantity of soil adhering
to the roots, they will bear a good
many berries the following 'season,
but not a full crop.
If transplanted in the fall without
any foil clinging to the reots. the
plants should not be allowed to beai
fruit the following season.
This is important, because when all
of the roots are dislodged it takes a
long time for the plant to recover
from the shock and form new roots.
None of the old ever takes a firm
hold in the ground unless new feeders
start and while the strawberry grows
or hibernates all winter, the growth is
less rapid when the ground Is cold
than It Is In the spring and summer.
A great many people believe fall
Is the proper time to set strawberry
plants.
They take up the plants or send
their order to some nurseryman, as
the case may be. and handle the
plants just as they would In the
spring. Now. this Is all wrong.
The last week In October is about
the right time to transplant, or rather
transfer, strawberries.
See that the soil Is in good condi
tion to receive the plants. Plow or
spade It as deep as the soil will per
mit If a crop of potatoes has Just been
removed from the ground. It should
not need much stirring.
Place the plants In rows about four
feet apart, and ten inches apart In tho
rows. Rows may be cither single or
double as preferred.
If the weather Is dry a little water
should be poured around the roots
before filling In the soli.
Don't cover too deep because If the
air Is excluded the plants will
"smother." Clean straw, free from
chaff, makes the best covering.
