My HEART .and
Adele Garrison's New Phase of
of a Wife
Washington, Sept. 30. Landing
of -American marines at Trau, Dal
tnatia, to dislodge Italian forces
which had occupied the town was
difcussed in congress again today.
The senate, after sharp debate,
adopted a resolution by Senator
New. republican of Indiana, calling
on-President Wilson for a report of
the incident if not incompatible
with the Dublic interest.
Secretary Daniels said no further
report on the landing of the Amer
icans had been received from Rear
Admiral Read, commanding the
American forces in the Adriatic.
The officer has been asked to send
Divide Coast Patrol.
Mr. Daniels said the division of
the Dalmatian coast for patrol by
American, French and Italian naval
forces had been decided upon by a
board of admirals representing the
United States, Great Britain, France
and Italy and approved by the peace
conference, and that the plan was
to remain in force until final dispo
sition oi tne uaimauaii territory uv
the peace conference.
I he commanders of the patroi
i ling naval forces, he added, were
1 responsible for the preservation of
order, on that portion of the coast
Ijnssigned them and that Admiral
irndrews had ample authority to
f take such steps as he deemed
necessary io picvciu uisuiuct.
Claim No Filibuster.
During the senate debate on the
new tesolution, charges by Senator
Hitchcock of Nebraska, administra
tion leader in the treaty fight, that
ihe republicans were using the
Trau and other incidents in Europe
to "heckle" the president and were
1 filibustering to delay the peace
treaty, brought sharp denials from
Republican Leader Lodge and Sen
ator Fall, republican, New Mexico.
Senator Lodge said there had
been no filibuster on the treaty and
that there would be none, bt that
senators who desired to discuss the
document would not be denied the
opportunity. He added that if the
enati weie given information as to
"the Trau incident and as to what
commitments had been made rela
tive to American participation in
Euui:an affairs debate on the
treaty would be shortened.

What Madge Determined to do.
The man who had given me the
name of George Bridgeham stared
at me unpleasantly.
"An order from Mr. Stockbridge,"
he said harshly. "Of course I
haven't any such thing. Mr. Stock
bridge entrusted those papers to
you, and he expected you'd honor
any request of his for them."
His voice was truculent, threaten
ing. I felt my anger rise at him.
' "Perhaps I would, any request of
his," I said coldly, meaningly.
"A request from his attorneys is
the same thing," he said in a more
conciliating manner. Evidently he
(",id not wish to quarrel with me.
That meant that I. not he, held the
winning cards in the game of wits.
"I agree with you I answered
"Then what are you waiting for?"
he demanded turning on me. I
don't see any use in delaying the
There was a greediness in his eyes
which made me more determined
than ever to give him no satisfaction
concerning Mr. Stockbridge's papers
until I have investigated the history
of Mr. George Bridgeham.
I rose to my feet with decision.
"You are waisting your time, Mr.
Bridgeham," I said curtly. "I have
told you that I hold nothing but
school records of Mr. Stockbridge,
and those I will deliver only to an
accredited representative of my pria
cipal who holds-a written order in
Mr. Stockbridge's own handwrittinp;.
He thrust his jaw forward with
an ugly gesture.
"D'ye mean that?" he snarled.
"I most certainly do," I returned.
"Well, you've got a nerve!" he
began roughly, but I stepped to the
door, flung it wide open, and bowed
"You will pardon me, I am sure,
Mr. Bridgeham. for I am too busy
to be detained longer."
"You'll Regret This."
His face flushed, and I saw a vis
ible struggle with himself taking
place. His thwarted vanity urged
him to unpleasantness, his prudence
counselled acquiescence in my dis
missal. As a compromise he stalk
ed out of the door, pausing only to
You 11 deeply regret this, young
woman before many days."
I sank into a chair as soon as the
door closed behind him, completely
unnerved. For not only then had J.
realized that his demand meant if
he were not in truth one of Kenneth
I looked at it from every angle,
there were but two explanations of
his call on me. Either he really was
an accredited representative of Mr.
Stockbridge in which case I had
failed my principal greviously or
else, most terrifying prospect for
me, he belonged to the enemy camp,'
and had discovered the fact that the
accused man had telephoned me at
the schoolhouse but a few minutes
before his wife's death.
The first alternative, much as.'T
prefered to believe it, was put out of
my mental court by my common
,ense. iMo man wno naa aispiayea
as much anxiety over the secret
safe-keeping of his personal papers
as had Kenneth Stockbridge, would
dream of sending a messenger with
no credentials for them. No, "Mr.
Bridgeham" must be in the employ
either of the state or of Milly
Madge Makes a Decision.
There was but two ways that he
could have discovered my posses
sion of the private papers from the
principal's desk by the admission of
the principal himself, or by the trac
ing of the telephone calls, the
probability that the operators
had "listened in" on the day of
Milly Stockbridge's mysterious
death. I knew that unless Kenneth
Stockbridge himself had lost his
reason he would never had betrayed
the existence of the secret he had
kept so long, the evidence of which !
he had entrusted to my care. Cen-!
tral must have "listened in," had j
overheard the principal's call, in all
probability she had heard the wild
raucous tirade of his wife a few I
minutes earlier. i
Two or three days before I had !
seen a rat that had been troubling)
the chicken house, and which Tim
had caught in a trap. The sight of
the terrible creature's futile circling
of the walls of the trap, and his
savage biting of the wires had
affected me most, unpleasantly at the
time. The memory fairly sickened
me now. for I felt that I, too, was in
a trap from which there was no escape.
Katie s voice recalled me to my
self. "Vot matter. Meesis Graham?"
pshe said with alarm in her yoice, as
she came down the stairs. xou
vite as vun sheet. Vot dot man
say? He vant to rob you?"
I pulled myself together with an
effort. This was no way to face an
emergency, I thought with grim
contempt for my own tremors. And
above all, Katie must suspect nothing-
"No indeed Katie," I said, spring
ing to my feet. "The man was only
a troublesome book agent. I soon
got rid of him, but I guess the heat
has affected me. I felt a little
dizzy all of a sudden."
"Dot cake!" Katie exclaimed in
remorse. "Dot kitchen too hot fcr
you. I ought to feex table in din
"What nonsense!" I exclaimed.
"I shall be all right in a moment.
But will you please look after my
cake? I must do some telephoning
For I knew thatl must find out at
once if possible the names of the
associates of Horace Kent, the emi
nent attorney engaged for the de
fense of Kenneth Stockbridge.
