My HEART'and
Adele Garrison'a New Phase of
a Wife
What Alice Holcombe Told
Y""". t Madge. . ,-.'..
Alice Holcombe looked up at me
wistfully, her lips quivering.
: "Forgive me," she pleaded. I
know I'm getting everything mixed
up. I I don't know what is the
matter with me."
"I won't1 forgive you if you talk
that way, I retorted with a grim
nest I was far from feeling. You're
simply upset by something you've
heard, and the quickest way out is
to tell me all about it. Come now,
you didn't know this when you went
to Patchogue,. so you must have
heard it there since yesterday. So
you won't have to go very far back
in your memory. Npw, when?
Where? How? as we use to tell
the chilldren in the composition
"I have a young cousin who is an
operator in the Bawiew telephone
exchange," she began obediently,
slowly, "I have not seen .her tor
some ' time, but she came out to
Patchogue yesterday for a week-end
visit the same , relative I came to
see. She is usually a very merry
girl, and I was surprised to find her
exceedingly sober of demeanor. I
caught here studying me covertly
several times, and at last this morn
ing she evidently made up her mind
to a definite course of action, for she
manoeuvred to get me alone and
then asked me earnestly:
Cousin Alice, what do you seally
think about 1he Stockbridge case?
Do you think Mr. Stockbridge killed
his wife?" ,.;T j; v :
"The ouestion nearly made me
lose control of imyself. But I have
been schooling my feelings lately,
trying not to betray too much my
horror at the thought that any one
should suspect Kenneth, for I find
that many of my best friends do not
think as I do about it. So I waited
until I could answer her calmly be
fore I tpoks.
An Unsuspected Shock. '
MT am sure that he didn't" I
told her. 'As sure of his innocence
as I am of yours or my own.'
" 'You're one of his oldest friends,
aren't you?' she went on, looking at
me curiously. 'Would it make yon
very unhappy . if he were found
guilty?-, ; ' nr
. .,"1 answered her promptly. Tees,
to both questions,' I said, and she
nodded her heed gravely as if I only
bad. confirmed her own tnougnu
"Then I know what to do," he
said thoughtfully, and a minute later
she added something which fright
ened me. '
"'Can you get a warnmg to Mr.
Stockbridge?" she asked.
"1 can I answered knowing that
I could relay it throusrh Kenneth's
attorneys. I did, not think it wise
to tell her that Kenneth had request
ed that neither you nor I should
attempt to see him."
Miss Holcombe paused and looked
up at as if asking assurance that she
had acted wiselv.
"You did just right,", I said."
"I thought you'd approve," she
answered simply, then went on with
her story. i
"Will They Tell r
"My cousin told me that both she
and another operator had listened in
on the telephone that afternoon both
when Milly telephoned you and
when Kenneth did."
I struggled hard to keep my face
expressionless. If these girls had
indeed heard everything, and should
tell what they knew, then the plight
of all of us was sad indeed. Alice
Holcombe and I would surely be
brought into the case, and I dared
not acknowledge even to myself how
damning to Kenneth Stockbridge
would be the evidence I would be
Compelled to give.
I forced my stiff lips to speech.
"Will they tell what they know?"
I asked. '
"The other srirl has. already."
Alice Holcombe answered, "but for
tunately she had a busy board that
afternoon, and she heard but very
little. She has been given a good
sum of money for the little bit she
did hear, and both she and the law
yers employed by Milly's family
have been pestering my cousin to
tell her story. But to far she has
kept quiet she is not the knid of a
girl to sell 1.W knowledge end they
have no idea how much she knows
And now I am sure she is safe. She
has promised me that she will not
only keen from telling what she
heard, but will persist in saying that
she really heard nothing more tnan
did the other girl. She even refused
to tell me what she had heard.
I drew a breath of relief. I could
understand the reluctance of Alice's
vountr cousin to repeat the venom
ous words concerning her which
Milly Stockbridge had uttered to
me that afternoon.
Glad indeed was I also that my
friend had not discovered the fact
of Kenneth Stockbridge's confiding
his private papers to me. I was
not sure just how she would take
that bit of news. But I was trou
bled at the thought of the dynamite
which her young cousin possessed,
for I did not quite share my friends
confidence in her young relative s
discretion. 1
I feared that a girl who would
"listen in" would also capitalize her
