Holding a Husband
Adele Garrison's New Phase of
Revelations of a Wife
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
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. ;

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

"Shall we
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
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
