Manderson's Family Infelicities
"He said, 'See here,, Cupples, you
don't want to butt in. My wife can
look after herself. I've found that
out, along with other things.' He
was 'perfectly quiet you know he
was said never to lose control of
of himself though there was a
light in his eyes that would have
frightened, man who was in the
wrong, I dare say. But I had been
thoroughly aroused by his last re
mark, and the tone of it, which I
cannot reproduce. You see," said
Mr. Cupples simply, "I Jove my
niece. She is the only child that
there has been in our in my
house. Moreover, my wife brought
her up as a girl, and any reflection
on Mabel I could not help feeling,
in the heat of the moment, as an
indirect reflection upon one who is
"You turned upon him," suggested
Trent in a low tone. "You asked
him to explain his words."
"That is precisely what I did,"
said Mr. Cupples. "For a moment
he only stared at me, and I could
see a vein on his forehead swelling
an unpleasant sight. Then he said
quite quietly: 'This thing has gone
far enough, I guess,' and turned to
"Did he mean your interview?"
Trent asked thoughtfully.
"From the words alone you would
think so," Mr. Cupples answered.
"But the way in which he uttered
them gave me a strange and very
apprehensive feeling. I received
the impression that the man had
formed some sinister resolve. But
I regret to say I had lost the power
of dispassionate thought. I fell into
ra great rage Mr. Cupples tone
was mildly apologetic "and said a
number of foolish things. I reminded
him that the law allowed a measure
of freedom to wives who received
intolerable1 treatment. I . made
some utterly irrelevant references to
his public record, and expressed the
view that such men as he were unfit
to live. I said these things, and
others as ill-considered, under- the
eyes, and very possibly within ear
shot, of half a dozen persons sitting
on the veranda. I noticed them, in
spite of my agitation, looking at me
as I walked up to the hotel again
after relieving my mind for it un
doubtedly did relieve it," sighed Mr.
Cupples, 'lying back in his chair. ,
"And Manderson? Did he say
"Not a word. He listened to me
with his eyes on my face, as quiet
as before. When I stopped he
smiled very lightly, and at once
turned away and strolled through
the gate, making for White Gables."
And this happened ?
"On the Sunday morning."
"Then I suppose you never saw
him alive again?"
- "No," said Mr. Cupples. "Or
rather, yes once. It was later in
the day, on the golf course. But
I did not speak to him. And next
morning he was found dead."
The two regarded each other in
silence for a few moments. A party
oV guests who had been bathing
came up the steps and seated them
selves, with much chattering, at a
table near them. The waiter ap
proached. Mr. Cupples rose, and
taking Trent's arm led him to a
long tennis lawn at the side of the
"I have a reason for telling vou
all this," began Mr. Cupples as they
paced slowly up and down.
"Trust you for that," rejoined
Trent, carefully filling his pipe
again. He lit it, smoked a little and
then said: "I'll try and guess what
your reason is, if you like."
Mr. Cupples' face of solemnity
relaxed into a slight smile. He said
"You thought it possible," said
Trent meditatively, "may I say you
thought it practically certain? that
I should find out for myself that
there had been something deeper
than a mere conjugal tiff between
the Mandersons. You thought that
my unwholesome imagination
would begin at once to play with the
idea of Mrs. Manderson having
something to do with the crime.
Rather than that I should lose my
self in barren speculations about
this, you decided to tell me ex
actly how matters stood, and inci
dentally to impress upon me, who
know how excellent your judgment
is, your opinion of your' niece. Is
that about right?"
"It is perfectly right. Listen to me,
my dear fellow," said Mr. Cupples
earnestly, laying his hand on
the other's arm. "I am going to be
very frank.. I am extremely glad that
Manderson is dead. I believe him
to have done nothing but harm in
he world as an economic factor,
know that he was making a desert
of the life of one who was like my
own child to me. But I am under
an intolerable dread of Mabel being
involved in suspicion with regard
to the murder. It is horrible to me
to think of her delicacy and good
ness being in contact, if only for a
time, with the brutalities of the law.
She is not fitted for it. It would

before he asked gently: "Why did

"I don't know," said Mr. Cupples
"Admired him, I suppose," sug
Mr. Cupples shrugged his shoul
ders. "I have been told that a wo
man will usually be more or less at
tracted by the most successful man
in her circle. Of course we cannot
realize haw a wilful, dominating
personality like his would influence
a girl whose affections were not be
stowed elsewhere; especially if h
laid himself out to win her. It is
probably an overwhelming thing to
be courted by a man whose name
is known all over the world. She
had heard of him, of course, as a
financial great power, and she had
no idea she had lived mostly
among people of artistic or literary
propensities how much soulless in
humanity that might involve. For
all I know, she has no adequate idea
of it to this day. When I first
heard of the affair the mischief was
done, and I knew better than to in
terpose my unsought opinions. She
was of age, and there was absolutely
nothing against him from the con
ventional point of view. Then I
dare say his immense wealth would
cast a spell over almost any woman.
Mabel had some hundreds a year of
her own: just enough, oerhaos. to
let her realize what millions really
meant. But all this is conjecture.
She certainly had not wanted to
marry some scores of young fel
lows who, to my knowledge, had
asked her; ahd though I don't be
lieve, and never did believe, that she
really loved this man of 45, she
certainly did want to marry him.
But if you ask me why, I can only
say I don't know."
Trent nodded, and after a few
more paces -looked at his watch.
"You've interested me so much,"
he said, "that I had quite forgotten
my main business. I mustn't waste
my morning. I am going down the
road to White Gables at once, and
I dare say I shall be poking about
there until midday. If you can meet
me then, Cupples, I should like to
talk over anything I find out with
you, unless something detains me."

Doctor Tells How to Detect
Harmful Effects af Tobacco
Try These SIMPLE TESTS
New York: Doctor Connor, formerly of
Johns Hopkins hospital, says: Many
men who smoke, ehew or snuff incessant
ly and who are seemingly healthy are
suffering from progressive organic ail
ments. Thousands of them would never
have been afflicted had it not been for the
us of tobacco, and thousands would soon
get well if they would only stop the use
-.f tobacco. The chief habit forming prin
ciple of tobacco is nicotine, a deadly poi
son which, when absorbed by the system
slowly affect the nerves, membranes, tis
sues and vital organ of the body. The
harmful affect of tobacco varies and de
pends on circumstance. One will be
afflicted with general debility, other with
catarrh of the throat. Indigestion, con
stipation, extreme nervousness, sleepless
ness, loss of memory, lack of will power,
mental confusion, etc. Others may suffer
from heart disease, bronchial trouble,
hardening of the arteries, tuberculosis,
blindness or even eaneer or the common
affliction knows aa tobacco heart. If you
use tobacco in any form you can easily
detect the harmful effects by making the
following simple testa. . Read aloud one

of reading your voice becomes muffled,

she had outlined, I equally deer

i was wining to go to many
lengths for Alice Holcombe. but this
proposition to spy upon my prin
cipal's wife through a transom was
something I could not do. I was
big enough, however, to see the just
ice of of her standpoint. It was her
duty, her pnvlege to protect the
man she loved from the crazed
maneuvers of his wife. But while
1 was perfecly willing to keep her
even to a point involving personal
danger, 1 felt that I must refuse
this thing she had asked, nay com
manded me to do.
"We probably are risking a
scene anyway," I said practically.
"But you must decide quickly. I
will go down to the office on some
plausible pretext, or 1 will stay here."
"Oh, go down by all means and at
once," she said, and I saw that she
was having difficulty in controlling
Why Madge Hesitated
I was not particularly calm my
self, but fortunately my "single
track mind," as Dicky terms it,
enables me generally to put aside
from my thoughts everything save
the particular task which is engross
ing me. So without any more
words I turned and went quickly
down the staircase to the door of
the principal's office, which was
closed, contrary to the usual custom
of the school.
I debated for a moment whether
or not I should knock on that
closed door. Then my common
sense asserted itself, and told me
that Mrs. Stockbridge was the real
intruder, and that either Miss Hol
combe or I, as the principal's assist
ants, hadxthe light to enter the office
in his absence at will. But my
fingers were trembling as I turned
the knob and swung back the door.
Milly Stockbridge did not see or
hear me, and my tramed eyes had
time to observe the setting in which
her absorbed fingers were framed.
She was sitting at her husband s
private desk, and the drawers which
he had always kept locked were wide
open. A key, one of a bunch on a
key ring, was inserted in the lock of
the top one, while the princial's

his hat from the veranda, waved it

in a desk chair on the lawn, clasped
his hands behind his head and gazed
up into the speckless blue sky. "Ha

out quick action by coal consumers. I
Coal cannot be produced and held in huge quantities awaiting the con
venience of buyers. It must be moved from the mines as fast as produced"
and kept moving until it finally reaches the consumer.
During the past two years we have been confronted with a coal shortage.
In 1917 it embarrassed our conduct of the war, shut dowm factories, left
cities in darkness, shortened the working hours of public utilities and
caused great suffering in many homes.
In 1918, in response to government appeal, consumers bought their,
coal during the summer months, and as a result of their action and the
superhuman effort on the part of operators and miners, the greatest pro
duction in the history of the country was achieved-namely 585,000,000 V
tons. Thus a shortage was averted.
In 1919-the present year-we face this situation: - " 1
Requirements for the year (Govt, estimate) 530,000,000 tons
(55 million tons less than 19(18)
Stocks on hand January 1 30,000,000. tons ,
Coal production required for 1919. ., 500,000,000 tons - -
Coal produced January 1 to June 14, 1919 195,000,000 tons
Quantity to be produced during remaining 28 weeks 305,000,000 tons
Average weekly production first 24 weeks 8,125,000 tons
Average tonnage which must be produced weekly during com
ing 28 weeks. 10,900,000 tons .
To meet the requirements of the coun
try, production of the mines must be in
creased 2,775,000 tons each week!
How can this be done?
. By buying your coal now. This is the
only way to increase productidn.
If production is not stimulated now,
somebody will have no coal this winter.
