D. P. Hogan, President of the
Omaha Institution, Denies
Accusations Made by Rep
resentative McFadden.
. Characterizing: them as "unfair
attacks by interests that have been
profiting by the old method of han
dling farm loans,", D. P. Hogan,
president of the Federal Land bank
ot Omaha, denied the accusations
against the federal land banks made
by Representative McFadden of
Pennsylvania in extended remarks
printed in the Congressional
"Mr. McFadden has for the last
six months been the mouthpiece of
the American Farm Mortgage
Bankers' association and has at va
rious times placed in The Congres
sional Record articles attacking our
system," stated President' Hogan.
"We have endeavored to confine
our loans to actual farmers oper
ating and owning farms and do not
wish to violate the terms of the act
whereby speculators and those
owning rented land receive the
benefits of the act.
"Loans are made at actual cost
and the profits go back to the bor
rowers. Any attack upon the sys
tem is an attack upon the farmer
who produces the greater part of
the wealth of the land. Congress
should repel those attacks and
should amend the law. It also
should increase the maximum loan
from $10,000 to $25,000, as $10,000
does not supply the needs of the
average borrower at the present
price of land, and, in fact, every
thing which must be bought for
improvement of the farm."

Mrs Albert Downs Is Relieved
of Twenty Years Trouble
' Praises Tanlac.
"Often my friends speak of how
well I am looking these days and !
when I tell them I have been tak
ing Tanlac they seem to under
stand all the Yest," said Mrs. Albert
Downs, who address is R. F.D.,
Route No. 2, Argentine, Kansas,
while in the Owl Drug Store in
Kansas City, Mo., recently.
"I suffered for twenty long
years with stomach trouble tind ner
vous indigestion," continued Mrs.
Downs. , "At times it just seemed
tike everything I would eat would
sour in my stomach and form gas
and I would be in such misery that
I could hardly stand it. I was
- bothered with constipation, too, and
was constantly taking something to
relieve that trouble and sometimes
I would have awful dizzy spells and
feel light headed and I was that
nervous I couldn't sleep well at all
and sometimes I would just roll and
toss nearly all night long and would
(ret up in the morning feeling per
fectly miserable from loss of sleep
and rest. I also suffered like I be
lieve thousands of other women do
when they go through that period
in life that taxes a woman's
strength almost beyond endurance.
I took treatments and different
kinds of medicine, but nothing I
trifd helped me and I continued to
suffer as only one who has gone
through it can realize.
"Then I happened to read where
a woman living right here in Argen
tine had gotten relief by taking
Tanlac, so, going on the idea that
what's good for one 1s good for
another, I concluded to give it a
, trial myself, and I had only taken
one bottle of it when I could notice
that it was helping me. My anpetite
got better and the gas didn't form in
my stomach like it used to, so I kept
right on taking Tanlac until I was
so much improved that I found I
could eat just anything I wanted
and not be troubled a particle with
; my ' stomach afterwards. I don't

The Mystery of the Clothes.
"As you left it. Now here is an
other point the last, I think. Were
the clothes in which the body was
found the clothes that Mr.' Mander
son would naturally have worn that
Martin rubbed his chin. "You
remind me how surprised I was
when I first set eyes on the body,
sir. At first I couldn't make out
what was unusual about the clothes,
and then I saw what it was. The
collar was a shape of collar Mr.
Manderson never wore except with
evening dress. Then I found that
he had put on all the same things
that he had worn the night before
large-fronted shirt and all except
just the coat and waistcoat and
trousers, and the brown shoes and
blue tie. As for the suit, it was one
of half a dozen he might have
worn. But for him to have simply
put on all the rest just because they
were there instead of getting out
the kind of shirt and things he al
ways wore by day well, sir, it was
unprecedented. It shows, like some
other things, what a hurry he must
have been in when getting up."
"Of course," said Trent. "Well,
I think that's all I wanted to know.
You have put everything with ad
mirable clearness, Martin. If we
want to ask any more questions
later on, I suppose you will be
somewhere about."
"I shall be at your disposal, sir."
Martin bowed and went out quietly.
Trent flung himself into .the arm
chair and exhaled a long breath.
"Martin is a great creature," he
said. "He is far, far better than a
play. There is none like him, none
nor will be when our 'summers
have deceased. Straight, too: not
an atom of harm in dear old Mar
tin. Do you know, Murch, you are
wrong in suspecting that man."
"I never said a word about sus
pecting him." The inspector was
taken aback. "You know, Mr. Trent,
he would never have told his story
like that if he thoght I suspected
"I dare say he doesn't think so.
He is a wonderful creature, a great
artist; but in spite of that he is not
at all a sensitive type. It has never
occurred to his mind that you,
Murch, could suspect him, Martin,
the complete, the accomplished.
But I know it. You must under
stand, inspector, that I have made
a special study of the psychology of
officers of the law. It is grossly
neglected branch of knowledge.
They are far more interesting than
crimminals, and not nearly so easy.
All the time I was questioning him
I saw handcuffs in your eye. Your
lips were mutely framing the syl
lables of those tremendous words:
'It is my duty to tell you that any
thing you now say will be taken
down and used in evidence against
you.' Your manner would have de
ceived most men, but it could not
deceive me."
Mr. Murch laughed- heartily.
Trents nonsense never made any
sort of impression on his mind, but
he took it as a mark of esteem,
which indeed it was; so it never
failed to please him. "Well, Mr.
Trent," he said, "you're perfectly
Tight. There's no point in denying
it. I have got my eye on him. Not
that there's anything definite; but
you know, as well as I do, how
often servants are mixed up in
affairs of this kind, and this man is
such a very quiet customer. You
remember the case of Lord Wil
liam Russell's valet, who went in
as usuaj in the morning to draw up
the blinds in his master's bedroom,
as quiet and starchy as you please,
a few hours after he had murdered
him in his bed. I've talked to all
the women of the house, and I
don't believe there's a morsel of
harm in one of them. But Martin's
not so asy set aside. I don't like
his manner; I beleive he's hiding
something. If so, I shall find it

bring against
Martin's story as he has told it to
"Nothing whatever at present.
As for his suggestion that Mander
son came iny way of the window
after leaving Marlowe and the car,
that's right enough, I should sa. I
questioned the servant who swept
the room next morning, and she
tells me there Were gravelly marks
near the window, on this plain drug
get that -goes round the carpet. And
there's a footprint in this soft new
gravel just outside." The inspector
took a folding rule from his pocket
and with it pointed out the races.
"One of the patent shoes Mander
son was wearing that night exactly
fits that print you'll find them,"
he added, "on the top shelf in the
bedroom, near the window-end, the
only patents in the row. The girl
who polished them in the morning
picked them out for me."
Trent bent down and studied the
faint marks keenly. "Good!" he
said. "You have covered a lot of
ground, Munch, I must say. That
was excellent about the whisky
you made your point finely. I felt
inclined to shout 'Encore 1' It's a
thing that I shall have to think
"I thought you might have fitted
it in already," said Mr. Murch.
"Come, Mr. Trent, we're only at the
beginning of our inquiries, but what
do you say to this for a preliminary
theory? There's a plan of burglary
say a couple of men in it and
Martin squared. They know where
the plate is, and all about the handy
little bits of stuff in the drawing
room and elsewhere. They watch
the house; see Manderson pff to
bed; Martin comes to shut the win
dow, and leaves it ajar accidental
ly on purpose. They wait till Mar
tin goes to bed at 12:30; then they
just walk into the library, and be
gin to sample the whisky first thing.
Now suppose Manderson isn't
asleep, and suppose they make a
noise opening the window, or how
ever it might be. He hears it;
thinks of burglars; gets up "very
quietly to see if anything's wrong;
creeps down on them, perhaps, just
as they're getting ready for work.
They cut and run; he chases them
down to the shed, and'collars one;
there's a fight; one of them loses
his temper and his head, and makes
a swinging job of it. Now, Mr.
Trent, pick that to pieces."
"Very well," said Trent. "Just to
oblige you, Murch especially as I
know you don't believe a word of
it. First: no traces of any kind left
by your burglars, and the window
found fastened in the morning ac
cording to Martin. Not much force
in that, I allow. Next: nobobdy in
the house hears anything of this
stampede through the ' library, nor
hears any shout from Manderson
either inside , the house or outside.
Next: Manderson goes down with
out a word to anybody, though
Bunner and Martin are both at
hand. Next: did you ever hear in
your long experience of a house
holder getting up in the night to
pounce on burglars, who dressed
himself fully, with underclothing.
shirt, collar and tie, trousers, waist
coat and coat, socks and hard
leather shoes; and who gave the
finishing touches to a somewhat
dandified toilet by doing his hair
and putting on his watch and
chain? Personally, I call that over
dressing the part. The only decora
tive detail he seems to have forgot
ten is his teeth."
The inspector leaned forward
thinking, his large hands clasped
before him. "No." he said at last.
"Of course there's no help in that
theory. I rather expect we have
some way to go before we find out
why a man gets up before the ser
vants are awake, dresses himself
fully, and is murdered within sight
ot his house early enough to be
cold and stiff by ten in the morn
Trent shook his head. "We can't
build anything on that last consid
eration. I've gone into the subject
with people who know. I shouldn't
wonder " he added, "if the tradition
al notions about loss of temperature
and rigor after death had occasion
alyy brought an Innocent man to
the gallows, or near it. Dr. Stock-
has them all, I feel sure: most gen
eral practitioners of the older gen
eration have. That Dr. Stock will
make an ass of himself at the in
quest is almost as certain as that
tomorrows sun will rise. I've seen
him. He will say the body must
have been dead .about so long, be
cause of the degree of coldness and
rigor mortis. I can see him nosing
it all out in some text-book that
was out of date when he was
student. Listen, Murch. and I will
tell you some facts which will be a
great hindrance to you in your pro
lessionai career, mere are many
things that may hasten or retard
the cooling of the body. This one
was lying in the long dewy grass on
the shady side of the shed. As for
rigidity, if Manderson died in
struggle, or laboring under sudden
emotion, his corpse might stiffen
practicaly instantaneously: there are
dozens of cases noted, particularly
in cases of injury to the skull, like
this one. On the other hand, the
stiffening might not have begun'un
til eight or 10 hours after death.
You can't hang anybody on rigor
mortis nowadays, inspector, much
as you may resent the limitation
Not what we can say is this. If he
had been shot after the hour at
which the world begins to get up
and go about its business, it would
have been heard and very likely
seen, too. In fact, we must rea
son to begin with, at anV rate on
the assumption that he wasn't shot
at a time when people might be
awake it isn t done in these parts.
Put that time at 6:30 a. m. Man
derson went up to bed at 11 p. m.
and Martin sat up till 12:30. As
suming that he went to sleep at
once on turning in, that leaves us
something like six hours for the
crime to be committed in; and that
is a long time. But whenever it
took place, I wish you would sug
gest a reason why Manderson, who
was a fairly late riser, was up and
dressed at or before 6:30; and why
neither Martin, who sleeps lightly,
nor Bunner, nor bis wife heard him
moving about, or letting himself out
of the house. He must have been
cartful. He must have crept about
like a cat. . .. A Do you feel

"Revelations of a Wife"
What Lillian Told Madge About
"the Lady."
Lillian's assurance that we were

I had so dreaded, gave me back my

My friend made no further com

acumen went on talking briskly
about everything and nothing dur

were safely within her wonderful

Lillian set her teeth together with
a vindictive little click that told
me the baffling of the evil woman
who had ruined my mother's life
and was now causing my father and
me so much anxitey, was the source
of special gratification to her. I,
knowing that her interest was soely
on my account, felt a rush of loving
gratitude to this friend who never
failed me.
"I wish I could ever do anything
for you Lillian," I said wistfully.
"Do you want me throw some
thing at your head?" she retorted.
"I've a notion to try it anyway"
meditatively "it might knock a
little sense into ' you. Do some

An Unamed Guest.
We had reached her bedroom as
she finished, and she indicated an
exquisite embroidered crepe blouse
lying unon the bed. It was of the
shade of blue most becoming to me,
and harmonized with the color of
my suit. It was a royal gift, and
from any one else I could not have
accepted it. But I said to myself
whimsically, that no one else except
Lillian would have offered it, and I
knew her generous heart would be
wounded if I did not take it.
"You'll take it back only over my

warmly. "It's simply perfect!
