Elizabeth had reached the break

a tragic desperation about her when
presently she rote and began tearing
off the white frock with reckless fin

torn, but she did not care. She threw
it aside as tonight she felt she had
thrown all her lite with Mme. Sencs

est rlothes: she stole out on to the
landing and looked at a clock there.
Ten minutes to 12! Somehow she
had thought it must be much later;
it seemed a lifetime since she had
left the house with Frmer and Mme.
If it had been hours later she would
not have cared; she was worked up
to such a pitch of desperation that
time was of no account. With her
shoes in her hand she stole down
stairs. In one of the rooms she could
hear madame and the" old French
housekeeper chattering together in
their own tongue; chattering of her,
she was sure, as she stole across the
hall and drew back the latch of the

her heart told her that she would be
forced to marry him, that nothing,

Elisabeth stood very still, her
breath coming fat in uneven gasps,
her hands hanging limp at ner side,
a she looked up through the moon
light into Koytton a haggard face.
A lire at peace seemed to have
fallen on hrr heart; she was with him
again; she had but to stretch out her
hand to touch him. A wavering smile
of infinite sweetness lit her eyes and
there was note of quiet confidence
in her voice as she answered him, as

"Coming to me?" Royston echoed
riizabeth's words with infinite ten

neither of them spoke.
In the distance a church clock
chimed midnight, and Royston rou-cd
himself with an ertort to say: ou

By lk A Maria U4 frM.
Chicago, May 17. Elimination of
the crackling and buzzing accom
panymg radio signals which have
proved the greatet obstacle in the
development of wireless communica
lion has been accomplished by army
experts, it was announced here to
day, me invention, which separates
all static noises from the radio signal,
was perfected by Major J. O. Mau
borgne, signal officer of the sixth
corps area, and Dr. Louis 'Cohen of
George Washington university, con
suiting engineer of the War depart
ment, after more than two years' ex
The separation of sicnal from
static noises caused by the electrical
charges m the atmosphere is acconv
lilied by a drain coil of wire, the
length of which varies with the dis
tance from which signals are re
ceived The strength of the signal is
not affected bv the draining process.
according to Dr. Cohen, and the sig
nals may even be amplified.
Use Light Socket.
Another invention announced in
connection with the elimination of
disturbing noises, was a resonance
wave coil by which a radio receiving
set may be plugged into an ordinary
electric light socket and radio signals
received as well as with an aerial.
This invention, on which a dozen
patents are now pending, was per
fected by Major General George O.
Squire, chief signal officer of the

here bv B. F. Miesner several days

"F.liminaiing static noises has teen
one of the most serious problem in
radio development, said Dr. Cohen
today. "Due to the electrical
charges in the atmosphere, especially
in summer, even the largest stations
must shut down at times. The de
vice perfected by Maj. Mauborgne
and Miesner parallels the static
noises, grounds the noise and leave
the signal clear and distinct."
Mai. Mauborgne explained that
radio signals received by the electric !
power line method could be cleared
of noises also, a proved in experi
ments yesterday. Such signals may
be received Ironi a broadcasting sta

densers which cost less than a dollar,
