WOMAN IN BLACK
By EDMUND CLERIHEW BENTLEY
The Lure of the Opera.
Trent served Sir James, well earn
ing his pay, for six months, and then
returned to Paris, where he went to
work again with a better heart. His
powers had returned to him, and he
began to live more hpily than he
had expected among a tribe of
strangely-assorted friends, French,
English and American, artists, poets,
journalists, policemen, hotel-keepers,
soldiers, lawyers, business men
and others. His old faculty of sym
pathetic interest in his fellows won
for him, just as in his student days,
privileges seldom extended to the
Briton. He enjoyed again the rare
experience of being taken into the
bosom of a Frenchman's family. He
was admitted to the momentous
confidence of les jeunes, and found
them as sure that they had surprised
the secrets of art and life as the de
parted jeunes of ten years before
One morning in June, as he de
scended the slope of the Rue des
Martyrs, he saw approaching a fig
ure that he remembered. He glanced
quickly round, for the thought of
meeting Mr. Bunner again was un
acceptable. For some time he had
recognized that his wound was heal
ing under the spell of creative work;
he thought less often of the woman
he loved, and with less pain. He
would not have the memory of
those three days reopened.
But the straight and narrow thor
oughfare offered no refuge, and the
American saw him almost at once.
His unforced geniality made Trent
ashamed, for lie had liked the man.
They sat long over a meal, and Mr.
Bunner talked. Trent listened to
him, now that he was in for it, with
genuine pleasure, now and then con
tributing a question or remark. Be
sides liking his compainon, he en
joyed his conversation for its own
Mr. Bunner was, it appeared, resi
dent in Paris as the chief continental
agent of the Manderson firm, and
fully satisfied with his position and
prospects. He discoursed on these
for some 20 minutes. This subject
at length exhausted, he went on to
tell Trent, who confessed that he
had been away from England for a
year, that Marlowe had shortly after
the death of Manderson entered his
father's business, which was now
again in a flourishing state, and had
already come to be virtually in con
trol of it. They had kept up their
intimacy, and were even now plan
ning a holiday for the summer. Mr.
Bunner spoke with generous admira
tion of his friend's talent for affairs
"Jack Marlowe has a natural big
head," he declared, "and if he had
more experience, I wouldn't want
to have him up against me. Hs
would put a crimp in me every time."
As the American's talk flowed on,
Trent listened with growing surprise
and anxiety. It became more and
more plain that something was very
wrong in his theory of the situation;
there was no mention of its central
figure. Presently Mr. Bunner men
tioned that Marlow was engaged to
be married to an Irish girl, whose
charms he celebrated with native
Trent clasped his hands savagely
together beneath the table. What
could have happened? His ideas
were sliding and shifting. At last
he forced himself to put a direct
Mr. Bunner was not very fully
informed. He knew that Mrs. Man
derson had left England immediately
after the settlement of her husband's
affairs, and had lived for some time
in Italy. She had returned not long
ago to London, where she had de
cided not to live in the house in
Mavfair. and had bought a smaller
one in the Hampstead neighborhood.;
also, he understood, one somewhere
in the country. She was said to go
but little into society. "And all the
good hard dollars just waiting for
someone to spraddle them around 1"
said Mr. Bunner, with a note of
pathos in his voice. "Why, she has
money to burn money to feed to
the birds and nothing doing! The
old man left her more than half his
wad. And think of the figure she
might make in the world! She is
beautiful, and she is the best woman
I ever met, too. But she couldn't
ever seem to get the habit of spend
ing money the way it ought to be
His words now became a solil
oquy: Trent's thoughts were occupy
ing all his attention. He pleaded
business soon, and the two men
parted with cordiality.
Half an hour later Trent was in
his studio, swiftly and mechanically
"cleaning up." He wanted to know
what had happened; somehow he
must find out. He could never ap
proach herself, he knew; he would
never bring back to her the shame
of that last encounter with him; it
was scarcely likely that he would
even set eyes on her. But he must
know! . . . Cupples was in
London, Marlowe was there. . .
And anyhow he was sick of Paris.
Such thoughts came and went;
by the Century company.
and below them afl strained the
fibers of an unseen cord that
dragged mercilessly at his heart, and
that he cursed bitterly in the mo
ments when he could not deny to
himself that it was there. . . .
The folly, the useless,- pitiable folly
In 24 hours his -feeble roots in
Paris had been torn out. He was
looking over a leaden sea at the
shining fortress-wall of the Dover
But though he had instinctively
picked out the lines of a set pur
pose from among the welter of
promptings in his mind, he found it
delayed at the -very outset.
He tftd decided that he must first
see Mr. Cupples, who would be in
a position to tell him much more
than the American knew. But Mr.
Cupples was away on his travels,
not expected to come back for a
month; and Trent had no reasonable
excuse for hastening his return.
Marlowe he would not confront un
til he had tried at least to recon
noiter the position. He constrained
himself not to commit the crowning
folly of seeking out Mrs. Mander
son's house in Hampstead; he could
not enter it, and the thought of the
possibility of being seen by her
lurking in its neighborhood brought
the blood to his face.
He stayed at a hotel, took a stu
dio, and while he awaited Mr. Cup
ples' return attempted vainly to lose
himself in work.
At the end of a week he had an
idea that he acted upon with eager
precipitancy. She had let fall some
word, at their last meeting, of a
taste for music. Trent went that
evening, and thenceforward v regu
larly, to the opera. He might see
her; and if, in spite of his caution,
she caught sight of him, they could
be blind to each other's presence
anybody might happen to. go to the
So he went alone each evening,
passing as quickly as he might
through the people in the vestibule;
and each evening he came away
knowing that she had not been in
the house. It was a habit that yield
ed him a sort of satisfaction along
with the guilty excitement of his
search; for he too loved music, and
nothing gave him so much peace
while its magic endured.
One night as he entered, hurry
ing through the brilliant crowd, he
felt a touch on his arm. Flooded
with an incredible certainty at the
touch, he turned.
It was she; so much more radiant
in the absence of grief and anxiety,
in the fact that she was smiling, and
in the alurement of evening dress,
that he could not speak. She, too,
breathed a little quickly, and there
was a light of daring in her eyes
and cheeks as she greeted him.
Her words were few. "I wouldn't
miss a note of Tristan," she said,
"nor must you. Come a.nd see me
in the interval." She gave him the
number of the box.
Doctor Tells How to Detect
Harmful Effects of Tobacco
- Try These SIMPLE TESTS
New York: Doctor Connor, formerly of t fore taking your usual smoke, walk up

Johns Hopkins hospital, says: Many
nen who smoke, chew or snuff incessant-
y and who are seemingly healthy are
luffering from progressive organic ail
nents. Thousands of them would never
lave been afflicted had it not been for the
ise of tobacco, and thousands would soon
tet well if they would only stop the use
if tobapco. The chief habit forming prin
liple of tobacco is nicotine, a deadly pot
ion which, when absorbed by the system,
lowly affects the nerves, membranes, tis
roes and vital organs of the body. The
larmful effect of tobacco varies and de
pends on circumstances. One will be
ifflicted with general debility, others with
latarro of the throat, indigestion, con
itipation, extreme nervousness, sleepless
less, loss of memory, lack of will power,
nental confusion, etc Others may suffer
from heart disease, bronchial trouble,
sardenins of the arteries, tuberculosis,
blindness or even cancer or the common
iffliction known as tobacco heart. If you
is tobacco in any form you can easily
leteet the harmful effects by making the

you are a slave to the tobacco habit, and
are positively poisoning yourself with the
deadly drug, nicotine. In either case you
have just two alternatives keep on with
the self -poisoning process irrespective of
the dangers and suffer the consequences,
or give up the habit and escape the dan

stop the habit in a very short time by
using the following inexpensive formula.
Go to any drug store and ask for Nicotol
tablets, take one tablet after each meal,
and in a comparatively short time you
will have no desire for tobacco, the crav
ing will have left you. With the nicotine

health will quickly improve.

Runaway Boys Say No
Fun or Money On Farm;
Arrested In Omaha
Alfio CaStiglia, 1515 North Sev
enth street, and Mike Calabito, who
lives in the same East Omaha neigh
borhood, were turned over to the
juvenile court by the police Sun
day night after they had been ad
venturing for three days.
Alfio left his home early Friday
morning, his parents said, leaving
this note on his bed:
"Dear Mother and Father: I
ain't had no fun or money since
we've been living on the farm. I
want to go to Omaha and make lots
of money. Mike and me are going
together. Goodbye, mother. Your
loving son, Alfio."
The boys were' discovered Sun

ALLEN DRAKE conducted us to
the waiting taxicab in the next
street, put us in it and then en
tered it himself.
I was surprised at this action and
I know Lillian was, for at dinner
we had heard him comment upon
the amount of delayed work which
was waiting for him, and we both
knew that he was not a man to
sacrifice necessary work to an
empty unnecessary courtesy such as
escorting us home would be.
With characteristic promptness,
Lillian put her thought into words.
"You know we'd love to have you
come with us," she said cordially,
"but we also know how very busy
you are, and ah escort for us is really
a superfluous luxury."
"I am indulging in the luxury,"
he returned with a flattering em
phasis on the pronoun, but I was
sure that the words were only a
mask, and that he had some vital
reason for going back with us to
I was sure of it when at Lillian's
door he dismissed the taxicab as we
alighted, then walked up the old
fashioned steps with us to Lillian's

said, addressing Lillian directly,

do me a great favor."

answered with the charming cour

a lot of work to do and the 'makin's'

"I won't come up otherwise," he
said hastily, "for I remember that
it was you, not Betty, who was re
sponsible for the delicious beverage
that has lingered so pleasingly in
my memory. I take off my hat to
Betty in many things culinary, but
she cannot equal your coffee."
"Oh, you're trying to blind my
eyes to some purpose of your own,"
Lillian laughed. You have evidently
fathomed the depths of my vanity.

Lillian the most immune from fern- f

s as conceited and positive about the
merits of her culinary concoctions as
a woman with no other horizon than
the kitchen walls could possibly be.
I smiled to myself as I reflected
that Allen Drake's appeal to this
vanity of hers had even blinded her
ordinarily keen perceptions to the
rather patent fact that he was simply
making an excuse of the coffee.
As I followed her into the living
room with Allen Drake walking
close behind me, I wondered just
what erand was bringing him to us
with so flimsy an excuse.
For if I gauged Allen Drake cor
rectly, and I was reasonably sure I
did, I was certain that no headache.
no matter how raging, would compel
him to ask aid of any woman or
would permit him to admit the phys

couch, "while I get the coffee ma

almost boyishly. "I've got to tell
Mrs. Underwood something, and I
don't know how she'll take it."

FENDERS on all GMC Trucks are of one

They are securely anchored to the frame and

Neither FENDERS nor brackets can possibly

last the fife of the track.
All GMC Tracks are equipped with a high grad,

longer. Its edges are finished and stiffened by half
oval iron straps riveted and welded on.
The DASH is reinforced at places where the lamp
