WHAT LILLIAN TOLD' KATE TO

As Lillian, with her never-failing,

and took the hands clutching her
bruised throat in mine.
'I am here, Katie," I said sooth
ingly, "and I won't leave you
again. Stop crying now."
She clutched at hie pitifully and
made an heroic effort to control
her-cries, then broke out into a
wild, terrified wall: ' , -.
"Oh, dot Joe! Dot Joe! He
know now dot I fool beem! lie
go und keel my Jeem, he go und
keel my Jeem!"
Lillian and I exchanged a glance
of sudden comprehension. This,
then, was one of the threats which
the mysterious "Joe," now in the
hospital, had held over the hap
less girl's bead that the husband
she adored In the funny, hectoring
fashion would be murdered did
aha nrovA treacherous to the line
of conduct Joe had marked out lor
her. And; Jim, misjudging her,
had left her to face her problem
Poor Katie! Hers had been, in

ognition of the victory over her
own terror whicn tne numDie, un
lettered but great-heart ed girl had
"You Not Know!"
It was no tme for half-measures.
I stooped and gathered
here- in my arms as I would a
friehtened rhild. and held her
close, her face against my shoul
der, smothering ner cries.
"Joe does not know anything,
I said slowly, firmly. "He is still
in the hospital, and no one has
seen . him. i And we know that in
a day or two he will be taken
many miles from here. : You will
never see him again." -
She twisted her face away
from my shoulder, and looked up
at me with eyes in which there
was nothing save wild despair. ;
"Oh, you not know!" she wail
ed. "You not know! Dot An
ton tonight; dot devil who shoke
me und try to keel you, he dot

earth small enough for me and
Jeem to hide. Dey find us any

tion in her tone that I could not
help a terrified shiver. The two
men certainly had been able to
plant in her an abiding terror of
their power. But I gave her no
inkling of my feeling. Instead,
I stooped and looked her straight
in the eyes.
"Katie, did I ever tell you a
lie?" I asked.
"No! Oh! no!" she asseverated
"Then I expect you to believe
me now." I answered slowly. "But
Mrs. Underwood can tell you bet
ter than I can what happened to
night. Listen to her carefully."

I had switched the responsibil
ity to Lillian, partly because I
felt that I could not stand the
strain of rehearsing the escape of
Smith, partly because I knew what
a calming effect upon my little
maid Lillian's authoriative manner
would have, i i
"Joe knows nothing of what you
did tonight," Lillian began im
pressively. "We do notjthink he
ever will know. This is the rea
son we think so."
She paused, and Katie, choking
back her frightened sobs, pulled
herself to an upright sitting pos
ture in my arms, , but she kept
her eyes fixed upon Lillian's.
"The man," Anton, whom you
fear so much, was captured by Mr.
Drake tonight, and then frighten
ed so that his only idea was to get
as far away as possible. He was
tied up in a room and left to him
self, so that he might get away,
but still fear that some one was
after 'him. Do youl understand
me?" , ; .
Katie's face had come alive with
interest and the dawning of a

she said. "He get away?"

This splendid book . for the
American child from the viewpoint
of an Italian who has become one
of the greatest authorities on
child training in the world.
A mention of the name Angelo
Patri means efficient child train
ing. He rules by friendliness and
his story of the milestones in his
tory, the election day. Fourth of
July holidays, the future citizens
of America brings to us all the
value of patriotism in early life.
It is a simple book with limit
less value in the hands of young
America. Well illustrated and
large clear print.
It must, be fine to be great
enough not to feel the need of
effecting a hard-boiled state.

with a shadowy but -real terror, j
