lined what he termed "The , Unoffi
cial Administration of a City" at a
large meeting of Rotarians at the
Hotel Fontenelle yesterday.
..."The unofficial administration of a
city is a centralized group or force,
made tip of citizens of character,
combined in a centralized organiza
tion," Mr. Larson said. "This force
may be called a chamber of com
merce, a board of trade or a com
mercial club, it doesn't matter
what, as long as its main object is
the building up of its city.
"Cities do not grow. They are
built. Detroit does not depend on
its available raw supplies to make
it an automobile manufacturing
center. It brings necessary ma

My HEART and
Adele Garrison's New Phase of
' of a Wife
The Way Madge Put Harry Under
wood on the Defensive.
My first emotion at the unexpect
ed sight of Harry Underwood alight
ing indolently from the machine
back of mine was one of unreason
Before my eyes flashed the most
awful moment of my life, that when
I first realized that the aviator who
had crashed to earth with his ma
chine and lay apparently lifeless
before me was my husband.
This man, lounging toward me,
his hands in his pockets, in the au
dacious manner of the old days when
he had been my husband's best
friend, had been responsible for that
horrible thing. He had been the
connecting" link between Grace Dra
per, the thought of whose very name
turned me ill, and the man whose
hands had cut the wires which sent
Dicky almost to his death.
. That he had repented as soon as
he recovered from the influence of
the whisky with which he had sat
urated himself and had enabled the
authorities of the field, to have the
first aid ready which had in all prob
ability saved Dicky's life, mattered
no whit to me." He had almost mur
dered My husband; that thought
would be ever with me.
I knew, however, that both in
Dicky's eyes and Lillian's Harry
Underwood had redeemed himself
by his war service, the most dan
gerous he could find, and the fact
that he had sacrificed himself for
Dicky when their machine had come
down behind the German lines.
That my husband was enabled to
come back to me alive was undoubt
edly due to the man before me, who
had taken the bullets meant for him
and had suffered for many days in
a loathsome German prison before
What Madge Said. 1
But, though the remembrance of
these things stopped my feet from
actually running panic-stricken
away from him, my first impulse,
made me realize that not only had I
nothing to fear from him, but that
for the sake of a mere decent grati
tude I must be civil to him. I yet
hid a shuddering distaste for his so
ciety beneath the courteous, sur
prised manner I adopted as soon as
I could pull myself together. -
"Mr. Underwood!" I exclaimed.
"How wonderful a surprise."
He laughed sardonically, eyeing
me with the old lazy, insolent mirth
I remembered and detested.
"Didn't I use to tell you that you
couldn't lie artistically, so you ought
never to attempt it?" he drawled.
"Well, you haven't gained any fa
cility in that direction since I've seen
you! You're about as glad to see
me as a book agent would be to
get the life of Lincoln for a Christ
mas present and you're thinking
right now that you'd rather sit here
by the roadside all night than to
have me fix that tire.
"Does Lil Know?"
He had reflected my thought so
graphically the hut color sprang to
my cheeks. Mr. Underwood put his
head on one side, looked at roe with
an air of impersonal criticism that
"I actually believe you're prettier
than ever," he said at last, in a tone
indicating that he had been debating
the question for some ,time. "You
haven't forgotten how to blush,
either. How many times I used to
make you angnr just to see you color
up that way. Don't worry," he grin
ned at me quizzically. "You can take
of your eyes. I'm not going to try to
kiss you, nor even imprint a chaste
salute upon the tips of your fingers,
although me 'art is aflame, simply
burning me up."
His tone, rather than his words
reassured me, although for a mo
ment or two I had been actually
afraid of the gleam of reckless ad
miration which I could not help see
ing in his eyes. But I decided to
take the conversation into my own
"Weren't you in a boat in the bay
for two or three days recently?" I
asked, knowing now that the sus
picion which I had not dared men
tion to Lillian, which I had dismissed
as a hallucination, was indeed con
firmed. He started, looked at me keenly.
"So you knew me when you were
gazing soulfully through those field
glasses the other day?" he said
slowly. "Well, fiat's one on me!
But you always were there with the
lamps. A very observing little party
yon were in the old days. Does
I was glad that he had the grace to
be ashamed a the look in his eyes,
his heightened color, his faltering
tones betrayed. For when I thought
of my friend sacrificing her happi
ness and that of the lonely artist,
Robert Savarin, in his mountain re
treat, because of her fancied respon
sibility for this wastrel before me I
could scarcely control my anger.
"1 do not know whether she does
or not," I said icily. "It is sufficient
that I do, and I should like to know
also why it is necessary for us to be
subjected to an espionage so intoler
able." (Continued Tomorow.)
