The Quest of
Hy MAG-DA r. WBST
Copyrisht, 1909, by W. Q. Chapman. Copyritht In Great Britain
They held the Inquest that same
Afternoon, and In the room where
Cerleso Wayne's body had been found.
Dr. McGann, the coroner, could find
no trace of violence on the young and
"Sho died of heart failure." he re
marked, very simply. "Probably the
nnlmal who caused the police such
fright and trouble gained access to the
room, and the sight and shock were
too much for her patently fragile con
stitution to withstand. Remember,
that this apparition has brought on
Mrs. Desterle a stroke of paralysis,
and may result In the permanent de
rangement of her mind.
"I have wired Doubleday, Franz &
Co., In San Francisco," he continued.
"Thlr reply Just received is that they
know but little about Cerlsse Wayne.
They declare that they knew her as
Mrs. Wayne. Also that for five
years past $2,000 a month has been de
posited to her credit with them. Parke
'& Gray, solicitors, of London, Eng
land, have handled the drafts sent to
the San Francisco bankers. Mrs.
Wayne drew on this amount so freely
that at times her balance was practi
cally nothing, and frequently her ac
count showed a small overdraft For
the past several months, however, her
demands on the account have been
very slight. Last month 4,000 was
sent for her credit, and her present
balance is approximately $6,000. Be
sides this they have a casket, said to
contain almost priceless Jewels, that
belong to her. A copy of a photograph
of Mrs. Wayne, which they have in
their possession, has been forwarded,
and Henry Franz, one of the Junior
members of the firm, is coming East to
view the body. They report they have
cared for her mall for some time past,
and during this time she has had it
forwarded to nearly every imaginable
point, both In this country and abroad.
In her handbag there was nearly $150
and nothing to indicate that she had
been mentally depressed or was In poor
health. Over-indulgence in cigarettes
may have unduly excited her mind. It
Is patent that she read and smoked till
she grew drowsy and then lightly
tossed her book aside. Possibly she
wakened from some quiet dream to be
Jhold that creature In the room, and
died of fright There was one second
of Intense horror and all was over."
"How did that that that get In,
aoctor?" interrupted the still dishevel
"Don't you know that there's no place
on the front of this, nor any other
bulldln' in the block where a cat could
crawl up for a footin? Ain't they ail
smooth sandstone, worn as slick as me
last year's coat And wasn't both of
the windows there closed and locked
In . the bargain, and no chimney In the
room? Maybe the creature killed the
prltty little girl after it got in al
right, but how did it get in? Here's
another thing. Will ye look at that
bed? Now there's been two people
sleeping In that bed, sir, one of them
far heavier and bigger than the poor
little girl you've Just been Inquestlng
over. And here, now, Is a cigarette
stub that's different from the others
stronger, can't you see?"
The policeman held out the stub In
question, and it was passed wonder
lngly from hand to hand, and later'
marked exhibit "A."
"Entrance might have been effected
from the hall," said the Coroner with
n puzzled frown.
-"So? Wasn't the door bolted from
the Inside? Can't you see where It
was broke to get in?" retorted Do
herty. "Ah, someone was Inside and rush
ed out when Mrs. Desterle opened the
door," muttered Larry Morris of the
Everybody in the room directed his
attention to the corner where the
newspaper folk were sitting. There
were eight or ten men In the little
group and one woman, a fair, calm
eyed girl, Betty Lancey of the "In
quirer." Betty was barely 23, one of
those tall, athletic, wholesome girls
who demand classification in the men
tal menu as well-cooked oatmeal with
rich cream, country honey, baked
apples or new milk. Larry Morris
was very much in lbve with Betty,
but he didn't know it and neither did
Pierre Desterle denied Larry Mor
ris' suggestion. His wife Annie Des
terle could not come as a witness to
corroborate his statement. Raving
and shrieking they had carried her off
to the hospital hours before. Pierre,
for his wife, and himself, told all he
knew of their unfortunate boarder.
"Sho came Monday night," quavered
the little black-skinned" fellow, "She
was all dressed In green. She had the
prettiest eyes you ever saw, they were
Just like those of a hurt baby. So many
violets were pinned on her breast you'd
have thought 'twould have wearied her
to carry them. She brought no trunks,
only the green bag there. Said she
wanted room and board for two weeks
and would pay well for them. Annie
took her because of what she paid, and
becuuse she was so pretty. She slept
lato mornings and Annie was going to
make her move to-morrow because sho
slept so late it made breakfast drag
ulong till noon. The women In the
house didn't like Miss Wayne. They
said she painted her face and smoked
cigarettes. The men made soft eyes
at hor and the woman got Jealous.
Annie said sho had awful line things
in her valise, and lots of Jewelry, An
nie came up Btalrs to wake her, for it
was lunch time, and then It all hap
pened. There couldn't anybody have
rushed down the stairs. I was In the
hall whon Annie fell, and Doherty was
with me, and he camo right up here
after we'd carried Annie to hor room.
That was the only time tho hall was
"How long did that take you, Do
horty?" asked Johnny Johnson of tho
newspaper coterie. He was thinking
that the Coroner was a shade too Judi
cial and prosy about the Inquiry.
"Some six minutes or so," slowly an
swered Doherty. "Mrs. Destorlo's a
weight to carry; she's pretty fat. you,
know, lately. Her room, too, It's clear
back on tho second floor.
They read the letters aloud. Tho
enterprising newspaper boys had al
ready had them photographed so that
their papers might reproduco them.
The longer of the two was undated,
the other bore dato of eight months
previous, In mid-August and ran:
"Cerlsse Dear Heart of mine, I
havo so longed for a letter. Do you
still refuse to remember? Will you
not forgive or must I die without word
or sign from you? Forgive me, Cerlsse,
dear, forgive me."
The other, couched more formally,
though In the same writing, read:
"Cerlsse So the wander-lust still
pervades your heart? Can you calm
your restless mind and soul and body

husband, children and tho develop

me Impress one thing upon you. If
you do not return to me before the
first of the coming year, I will kill

anything I have ever written or said.
You won't understand this, you won't

"Seems to me that 'H,' whoever 'H
Is, must have been Intoxicated, de
ranged or doped on his correspondence
course," whispered Larry Morris to
"Oh, don't Joke," replied Betty.
"How can you at such time? Such a
beautiful woman as she was, too. I'd
have loved to havo seen her as she
must have been when she was alive."
"Death from causes unknown. Prob
ably heart failure superinduced by
fright" came the Coroner's verdict
This ultimatum disposed of the
body, which was burled next day. But
it didn't of the Monster. That was
in a cage in the municipal zoological
gardens, snarling, whining and mak
ing the hours hideous. And it didn't
dispose of the story. That went flash
ing around the world on the wires,
while newspapers the country over
seized the scent to track the "greatest
crime mystery of the age."
Early next morning Larry Morris
sat In Le Roy's cafe, an all night res
taurant and rendezvous of the news
paper men, Industriously disposing of
a roast beef sandwich.
Larry's forehead was twisted into
half a dozen corrugations. Ho was
hoping none of tho boys would come
In till he had got this Wayne story a
little clearer in his head. Larry and
two photographers had made three
trips out to the Park to see tho awful
Thing which some apt reporter had
christened the Man-aperllla.
One by one the boys came trooping
in. And tho Wayne murder was tho
topic of the night
Til tell you what it Is, boys," said
Hank Smith. "That Man-Aperilla is
half-human and I know It When
those white and black eyes were turn
er upon me I felt my soul crawl out
from under me, and I was left there
hanging in space. Tell you what it Is,
there's a story there."
"Cut It, Hank, cut it," called little
red-headed John Johnston, the best
police reporter In town. "Here, Ma
mie," to tho waitress, "bring Hank
some eatings so the rest of us can
take a rubber at tho conversational
game. Wasn't that girl a stunner,
though? And did you notice, too, what
a dead match that her hair was for
the color of the pelt on tho beast?"
Now every man at the table had
noted Just that point. It was so ob
vious a point that it was startling.
Each had been loath to launch an opin
ion on it. But Johnny had a way.
with him of pumping all you knew by
bold plays. Each man took counsel
with himself wondering what Johnny
would do next For ten years theso
boys and Johnny had met every Mon
day night, and the crowd had learned
when to give him rope.
But Just now Johnny and his bowl
of rice and milk relapsed into silence
while his companions ranged far In
wild theories of who "II" was, what
part ho had played in tho life and
death of Corisso Wuyne, whether sho
was wife, widow, murdered or simply
another victim of the suicide list
By and by Johnny dug down Into
ono of the over bulging pockets of his
always baggy trousers. Tho by-word
was that Johnny always looked so
much like a burglar that he never had
any troublo gaining the confident of

"Hunting for a quartor, Johnny, or a
toothpick?" questioned Larry Morris.
"Hero, look at this," answorod John
ny. Into their midst ho twirled tho some
thing ho had drawn from his pocket.
It was a man's garter of lavender silk
elastic, tho bucklo hnnd wrought from
rose gold, set round with amethysts
and on tho faco tho Initial "H," worked
out In emeralds and amethysts of ox

Now women, you know, don't wear
garters like this."
"Might" bellowed Hank Smith.
"Saw a telegraph story the other day
that thoy had taken to wearing half
hose in New York."
"But here's tho question," continued
Johnny, "no man in tho house knew
Mrs. Wayne nor anything about hor.
Why, tho only decent word any ono
of those curious passed about hor was
that no ono had como to see hor slnco
she arrived, and that sho had appeared
embarrassed when her follow boardors
of tho sex masculine attempted to pay
her any attention."
"I'll Just wager that Bho was some
poor, sweet llttlo girl who had mar
ried some old fool for his monoy," in
terposed Philip Hartley, whoso sym
pathetic heart beat for all the mis
treated women In tho world. "She's

flouted Larry Morris. "Proceed, Jules
Verne II. Why don't you go farther,
and have It a trained ape sent carrier

ogre-husband, to choke her to death?"
"Because sho wasn't choked," con
tended Hartley. "Heavens, what a
woman she must havo been."
"Oh, to kill from Jealousy," Ued
Hank Smith. "Why, hallo; hero's let

Betty, don't you ever get through
work? And you're all out of breath.
What's wrong. Mamie, got hor some

Betty, white as print paper, Bunk on
a chair. Her big blue eyes were open
ed wide. "Boys," she Bald. "Como

but tell me, am I crazed or dreaming;
has it really happened or am I imv

I am afraid to stop alone In that aw

home and stopped at the hotel to

"What's up, anyhow?" asked John
ny. "Tell the rest of them, Betty.
I'm going up to get chummy with the

"I haven't got it," Bho snapped.
"But Just as I started to get Into bed
and went over to ralso the shade, I
looked across the court Into one of the
other rooms of the hotel. And In there
what do you think I saw?"
Womanlike Betty paused to give her

valued at approximately $5,000,000, has

claimant is John B.King of Toxarkano.

ago undor tho placor mining act. Ho
claims that tho aroa of tho lake was
nover turned ovor by tho government
to tho State of Louisiana, and as tho
attoruoy general of that State did not
put In an appearanco yesterday It Is
believed that the State Is content to lot
tho general government deal with tho
proposition boforo It In any manner
It may deem advisable
Former Representative John J. Lcntz
of Columbus, Ohio; J. A. Tellior of
LltUe Rock, Ark., and J. D. Kornor,
alBO of tho capital of Ohio, mado up
tho legal array which presented Mr.
King's side of the caso. At tho close
of the argument Commissioner Den
nett took tho matter under advlBoment.
Ho did not announce when a decision
will be rendered In tho matter.
For several months past It has been
belloved that the State officials of Lou
isiana wore going to put up a vigorous
fight for tho lako, which also has a
considerable area In tho State of Tex
as. Several years ago, while prospect
ing over tho general oil Held In tho
section whero the lake Is located, Mr.
King discovered that while the Stand
ard Oil Company had located Its wells
on all sides of the property, no attempt
had been mado to locato on tho lako.
He then went to work, and made a
close examination of the records bear
ing on the question of title to tho land
on which tho lako lies. ThlB was for
merly government land before tho back
water from tho Red River overflowed
the section and left the lako. He ascer
tained, bo it was pointed out in tho ar
gument of the attorneys before Com
missioner Dennett yesterday that tho
lake was never turned over by the
general government to tho State of
Louisiana, and ho lost no tlmo in mak
ing an entry on tho 4,400 acres in ques

With his entry ho then mado his
plans to bring tho matter to the atten
tion of the commissioner of tho gen
oral land office, so as to perfect tho ti
tle before he begins operations for lo
cating oil wells. He talked at length
yesterday of tho question and pointed
out that as the lake Is only about two
or three feet deep It will bo a campara
tlvely easy matter to locate oil wells In
all parts of the area covered by the
4,400 acres In question. Mr. King Is
positive from tho Investigations he has
mado that tho area Is of Immense valuo

the latter occurrence Is so rare aB to

In England, a man wa3 found dead In

a plate of false teeth wedged tightly In
his throat across the opening Into tho

In placo by tho suction of tho lurigu.
A medical witness offered tho expla

forcibly into tho throat by a "deep
