THE WOMAN IN BLACK By EDMUND CLERIHEW BENTLEY CoprrUjht. CHAPTER XXVIII. 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 had been. 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 sake. 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 enthusiasm. 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 question. 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 spent" 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 of it! 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 cliffs. 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 opera. 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. (Continued tomorrow.) 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 . . , ... three flights ot stairs at a regular pace.

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 day in the Northwestern railroad yards, about to rob a box car, Spe cial Detective Morgan said. Alfio was captured, but Mike escaped.

My HEART and My HUSBAND Adele Garrison's New Phase of Revelations of a Wife County Will Advertise Paving Bonds for Sale The board of county commission ers Monday passed a resolution, ord ering advertisements to be inserted in a New York paper, a Chicago paper and an Omaha paper, offer ing $1,000,000 of the $3,000,000 high way paving bonds for sale.

Bids are expected by Sep tember 1, though the exact date of opening them has not been set. 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 Lillian's apartments. 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 door. "The evening is young yet," he said, addressing Lillian directly, "and I am wondering if you would do me a great favor." ''You have only to name it," she answered with the charming cour tesy which is so characteristic of her. Madge Understands. "I have the bad combination of a lot of work to do and the 'makin's' of one of my nervous headaches coming on," he returned smiling. "I happened to remember the wonder ful black coffee you gave me once when we were working on a case together. If it wouldn't incon venience "Of course," she interrupted with ready hospitality. "Come right up. If Betty has gone to bed I will make it myseif." "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. But how did you ever discover my secret belief that I make positively the best coffee in the wide wide world?" rt. 1 . 1. i:. i . .1. jne naa spoKen inc nierai irutn. ,v Lillian the most immune from fern- f inine foibles of any woman I know 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. Left Alone. 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 ical weakness to her. The excuse must be only a pretext cleverly predicated upon his knowledge of Lillian's foibles. "Now amuse each other, children," Lillian commanded, unpinning her hat and tossing it carelessly upon a couch, "while I get the coffee ma chine." When she had left the room Allen Drake turned to me. "Please stick around," he said almost boyishly. "I've got to tell Mrs. Underwood something, and I don't know how she'll take it." (Continued Tomorrow.)

Truck Talk No. 13 Fenders & Dash FENDERS on all GMC Trucks are of one piece heavy pressed steel; they are well shaped, extra large, strong and substantial. They are securely anchored to the frame and braced by two sturdy brackets. Neither FENDERS nor brackets can possibly work loose. The FENDERS will withstand hard est service, are not easily bent and ordinarily will last the fife of the track. All GMC Tracks are equipped with a high grad, pressed steel DASH. It is lighter, stronger and better shaped than any wood dash and will last 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 brackets and radiator rods attach. A word about the Footboard: all FOOTBOARDS of GMC construction are kiln dried and thor oughly oiled hardwood, and are easily superior to metal boards. The metal "boards" rattle after the truck is in service a time, become smooth, slippery and danger ous. In winter they are extremely cold; in sum mer uncomfortably hot, Wood boards give con tinual good service and are not affected by ex tremes of heat. The FENDERS, DASH and FLOOR BOARD indicate the thorough, common sense construction of all GMC units. Let Your Next Truck Be a CMC Nebraska Buick Auto Co.
