Problems That Perplex
Marrying In Haste.
Dear Miss Fairfax: About a year
ago I was secretly married to a
man five years my senior.
Immediately after my father
started court proceedings, and finally
succeeded in getting our marriage
annulled on the ground that I was
under age. My father threatened to
disown me if I had anything more
to do with this young man.
Xow, Miss Fairfax, I do love him,
and he loves me, as he has proven
on many occasions. We have met
regularly and realize that we cannot
live without each other. His Income
now is large enough to support me,
and as 1 am 18 years of age
now, we again plan to get married.
I love him dearly, and also love my
parents. My mother said sne would
die of a broken heart if X would
ever contemplate such a marriage. I
simply know that I cannot live with
What would you advise me to do?
Of course 18 often declares - that

or 22, that an entirely different Ideal

sad to think that your parents must
again suffer on your account, as they
no doubt suffered when you ran away
and their little girl suddenly de
veloped into a married woman. On
the other hand, "youth must be
served," and parents often adjust
themselves to the inevitable and
learn to accept and even tb find
happiness in the marriage they once
found so contrary to all their desires.
Can't you wait awhile and make sure
of your own feelings? Perhaps you
are just in loVe with love. A step
such as you plan to take requires
thought and time to prove, its justi

NOW GIVEN TO WORLD FOR FIRST TIME
This is the weird and absorbing story, humorous, pa
thetic and tragic, of three young women who never have
known one another. Widely different in kind and dwelling
far apart, their paths have never crossed, yet their singular
adventures, require telling as one narrative.
Two of these young women occupy similar stations in
life, but greater diversity than theirs is not often found.
The third is far more unlike the other two than they are
like one another. They become the personages of a single
story because unconsciously they are linked by a single
One of the this trio is the studious
and outwardly unemotional assist
ant librarian in a midwestern subur
ban community. The gods reached
down and took her by the hands
and she brushed greatness for
Two Prompt Strange Crimes.
Another is the lovely but obscure
orphaned daughter of an art col
lector, eking out an existence as a
secretary, and becoming, because of
her poverty, the unwitting insti
gator of a crime marked by a cun
ning worthy of a better cause.
' And the third is a nameless
maiden sold out of China into the
most hideous form of slavery. But
vengeance was her handmaiden and
played villainy into her power, and
she in turn shaped events until
they led to one of the strangest
and cruelest feats of psychological
punishment on record.
Each, after her great hour, has
withdrawn from view, though none
of them can withdraw into forget
fulness. In this three-ply fashion
their stories are "fcow told for the
First of all there is Miss Henri
etta Brown, a young woman whose
reserve has often been admired. She
has served a useful rather than or
namental purpose at the desk of the
library in a Chicago suburb. Her
'eyes are circled with the rims of
studious glasses; her voice is low
and her speech precise; her dress is
plain and remarkable for nothing,
as befits one who boards with her
worn, child-bearing sister, wife of
a bookkeeper, who lives in a plain
cottage "across the tracks."
Had Secret Interest.
To her neighbors and to those for
whom she fetches books from high
shelves, the assistant librarian is
merely Miss Henrietta Brown, but
that plain but serviceable name con
ceals a high sensation, hitherto sup
pressed. When Miss Brown was not
fetching books or minding her wail
ing nieces and nephews she had in
terests of her own. These she culti
vated in an unused garage back of
the cottage "across the tracks."
There with doors bolted and shades
drawn, unshod and unhindered by
raiment more elaborate than blouse
and bloomers, she taught herself
the way to freedom. And when she
found it, as she did. she was, for
her brief spell of glory, not plain
Miss Henrietta Brown of the subur-
ban library, but a radiant creature
who took the applause of the multi
That is now all a thing of the
past. In her great day Miss Brown
took refuge in such anonymity as
the title of The Masked Dancer af-
forded, andMn all the suburb' only
one found her out the studiously
sedate, but soon desperately strick
en, principal trustee of the library
wherein Miss Henrietta Brown
fetches books. And his way of find
ing her out, and his reaction to his
discovery, and her response to his
reaction, are no less a part of the
suppressed sensation than Miss
Brown's flaming career incognito.
Daring Crime Is Concealed.
Suppression f the singular story
""of the second young woman may
seem even more remarkable, for her
career was marked by an incident
which cried loudly for publicity.
This young woman, name of Edge
water, possesses remarkable beauty.
But her beauty has never been ex
ploited and she, even more than
Miss Henrietta Brown, is content to
abide in obscurity.
Miss Edgewater's employer as
serts that she has no particular sec
retarial talent. The principal enemy
of her employer asserts that she has
pictorial qualities which rise above
comparison even in New York, a
city famous for its beautiful
The events which bring Miss
Edgewater into this story have
never been mentioned by her. It is
not thought that she is even aware
of them. She and her mother have
found life difficult since the death
of her father. In the beginning,
her employment was an act of char
ity on the part of the man who was
led, by the pathetic situation in
which she ( and her mother found
themselves to apply his great but
sinister talent for their benefit.
Kindness Proves His Undoing.
This employer, it may now be
told, is Heywood Achison, a man of
impressive mien, a payer of office
rent, but otherwise a person with-
K out visible means of support. He
does not move in society, yet he is
not a police character. Whatever
he has done, lie has not been found
out not until now. And it was a .
trick of fate that he was found out
at the only time in his career that
he ever attempted to do a charitahlt.
One man alone found him out,
and that man, Wallace Ramsay, his
unrelenting enemy, was led to com
pound a felony by suppressing trjs
story of a crime because of his
budding interest in the young
woman out of sympathy for-whotn
Achison risked his liberty and so
much of hts reputation as he had
theretofore been able to preserve
Achison's sympathy for the girl ,
and her mother prompted him to de

contents, among which was a spur

Edgewater family, but used by

The sensational interest in thi
rase of arson lies not so much irj
the mere commission of the crimed
nor in what prompted it, as in tta
exercise of satanic cunning with
which it was committed with a viey
to creating the impression that th&
burning of the house was acci
dental. And equally sensational is
the story of the maimer in which
the crime was detected and thf
Third Is Napieless Slave Girl.
There is no. record of the jiame
of the third young woman of tjre
trio with -which this story is "con
cerned. She is a Chinese giil, and
where she is and the conditions un
der which she exists-are unknown.
But she figured in a case of tong
revenge both strange and ghastly
before she dropped out of sight.
This Chinese slave girl was an
unwilling passenger on an old tub,
the Vasa, Capt. Uleab,or!?, which
was beating up the Pacific from
Mexico to San Francisco. On the
boat with her were eight Chinamen,
who, by virtue of variou3 amounts
paid the Finnish captain, were led
to believe thev could defeat the ex
elusion act and permit themselves
to be smuggled into the United
But these eight Chinamen came
to port at Anacapa dead men
dropped into deep water. Uleaborg
had their money and thought it
safer to enforce their debarkation
at sea than to take them through
the Golden Gate. The slave girl
was tolled off with the eight othel
celestial passengers, but when, tha
slaughter began she dived into the
sea with the courage f a Tahiti
girl. She was picked out of tha
sea by Chinese fishermen, rrtmhera
i of the Four Brothers Tong, and t6
them she told the ttory i f ihe mur-
der. of eight ncn by Uleaborg.
Captain Caught in Trap.
From that hour' the Finn was a
marked man. Though he was a '
hairy giant, he was not slow witted
Twelve months the tong waited for I
its opportunity, and then it wreaked '
its vengeance with unparalleled
AH the craftiness of the highly
educated and influential California
Chinaman, Lee Sat Kan, was re
quired to enable the tong to get its ,
hands on Uleaborg, and then this
was accomplished only by appealing
to the latter's cunning. He fell into
the trap and he paid, and still pays,
in living death, the penalty for his
crimes. , .
The newly revealed means by
which the sea captain was captured
by tne tong and the marvelous
means of his punishment; unprecei
dented in America, are-woven into
a narrative of absorbing interest.
How Stories Are Recorded. : ;
So are told in a few sentences
some phases of the singularly iiW
teresting stories of three young
women who have never known one
another, whose paths have never
crossed, and yet whose stories,
greatly amplified, combine to sup
port a single interest. '.
The amusingly sensational story
of the strange exploits of Miss Hen
rietta Brown is related by Samue,l
Merwin, famous novelist, in "The
Garage of Enchantment."
The exciting narrative of the In
fluence of a girl's beauty on the
career of a sympathetic crook Is
found in Miss Edgewater's history
a set dov1 by Wilson Wood4
row, favorite with readers, in
"Every Man Has His Price."
And the weird and tragic story
of the Chinese tong's unremitting
punishment of Capt. Uleaborg is
written by Jack Boyle, authority orr
the Oriental in America, in "The
Claws of the Tong."
