Holding a Husband Adele Garrison's New Phase of Revelations of a Wife What t. No trace has been found of the hiding place of the" two robbers who are believed to have been shot Thurs day night by Lloyd W. Longnecker, private detective, 4428 South Twelfth street v Longnecker says he is confident he wounded the men when he saw them attempting to enter his home. 1 He was sleeping on the front porch of his home when he heard the robbers in his home. Seizing: a .45 caliber revolver, he crawled on his hands and knees to the .front door. He saw two faces silhouetted against the screen. He shot six times at the men. Longnecker said he heard one man fall, get up and stagger toward a rear door. Steps of both robbers were traced to an alley by blood drops. , Detective Longnecker informed police that he knows both men. He said they are attempting to take his life because of, his connection in a recent lawsuit when he obtained evi dence against them. Mrs. Arthur Haning, mother of Mrs. Longnecker, 4438 South Twelfth street, was awakened by the first .shot fired by Mr. Longnecker, she said. Hastening to the Long- Vker home, she- saw a young man fall with a thud and moan, she said? Another man dashed from the side of th? house and carried the wounded victim to a waiting automobile, Mrs. Haning said. Mrs. Hanirig told of threats she heard that two men would kidnap the two Lonecker children, Geof frey, 3 years old, and Jeanne, 5 years old. ; City Council Approves Report On Appraisal of Gas Plant The city council yesterday ap proved the findings of the court of condemnation on the appraisement of thegas plant at $4,500,000, on ex tras, accruing since the appraisal made June 1, 1918.

I 'they i asked Happened When the Little Trunk Wat Opened. , For a long moment I stqod mo tionless watching my father's tense figure clasping the little trunk in his arms, his face bent toward it. Then I went up to him aeainid put my own hands over his asth new it. "Shall we quietly. He started and trembled, almost as would a child who had been struck. ' Then, as if bringing himself back by a mighty effort from some distant place where his soul had wandered, he put the little 'trunk down upon the table and turned to me. with a resumption.; of the poise which had completely deserted him at his first sight , of the fhemory. hauntcd thing. "I must crave your, pardon, 'dear," he said with the dignity which al ways invests him. "I completely f lost control of myself for a moment or two. I had the feeling almost as it as if" His voice trailed off into, silence. Over his face crept again the rapt look I had seen when he first took the trunk into his arms. I . spoke again, as much to. still my own nerves, quivering with the percep tion of the elusive uncanny emotion which was swaying him, as to recaU him to consciousness. ' The Top Layer. "I I know, father," 1 said softly. He brought his eyes back to my face, let them rest there.,. - "Do you feel it too?" His voice was a whisper. I brought myself back to sanity with a jerk. I didn't know to what lengths this obsession of my father's might carry him, and felt the neces sity of injecting a touch of com monplace into the situation, "No," I prevaricated, with almost a curt air. "Where ,is the key. for this?" I asked the question of my self, then answered it as quickly. "Oh, yes, I remember now.'1' I went to my desk, and from a drawer took a small keyring) hold ing only the kays of the trangs which I don t need to open often, rjom it I selected an old brass key and put it into my father's oustretched hand. His fingers trembled, per ceptibly as he took it, and ijt was with a reverent air that he inserted it in the lock, turned it and threw the top of the little trunk back. I knew, of course, what would meet our eyes nackagej and pack ages of letters, closely tied together so as to occupy the -least possible space. There were other things in the bottom of the trunk, mementoes of my mother more precious than let ters, the inlaid lock box whrch had been my grandmother's, and whicn, with its contents, I meant to show my father when we shoHld come to it, but the packages of letters com posed the entire, top layer. , . They were the letters my father and mother had written each other in the days before their marriage and in their marital life. turning of fate's wheel had brought them back to the husband who. had caused that tragedy, when the wife who had been its innocent victim had long beet dust. I had never read them. I had never even untied the knots which my little mother's frail hands had fashioned in the strings which held them together. In the old days be fore my father came back into my life I had hated him so savagely that I could not bear to look at them. And since I had 'learned to' for give him and to love him I had felt sOmeway that they were not for my eyes" until after my father had had an opportunity to read' thenvpver and select the ones he wished to give me. My father put out his hands and picked one of the bundlej up rever; cntly. . ' "These cannot be " he . began then sharply, "May I untie them?" Everything in here is yours, father, dear, to do with as you like," I. returned. He took off the strings, separated the letter and stared at the chirography of the address Then he spoke wonderlngly: T "And she kept them through it alll" K. ' (Continued Monday.) :.
